Maricela Monday’s: My Weekend

Maricela Monday’s: My Weekend

Happy Monday wonderful people!  If you are new here, Welcome!  If you’ve been keeping up with my Blog Welcome back!  Today I am going to talk about my weekend and mention a couple of favorites that I re-discovered this weekend.

Sometimes self-care is exercise and eating right.  Sometimes it’s as simple as taking a nap.  Whatever it might be that allows you to relax and recharge, do it.  We moms get so caught up in always taking care of others that we forget about ourselves.  Just remember that you only live once and you deserve to focus on yourself sometimes, be a little selfish but not too selfish. 🙂

This weekend I fully relaxed.  Saturday morning I woke up early and went to the gym.  Working out makes me feel so good!  Saturday night we went on a date along with Naila. 🙂  Had some delicious steak and yesterday I got a massage for the first time ever.  Let’s just say it is life changing for sure.  I feel like a complete new woman!  So relaxed and enjoyed just being about myself.  My weekend was just amazing and  will definitely be getting full body massages regularly.

The 2 items that I re-discovered this weekend are:

  1. Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream Perfume– this is considered to be a fruity floral scent.  It is light and airy and it smells so good.  🙂  I’ve owned this perfume for a while and I have not gotten tired of it.  🙂
  2. Glamglow Thirstymud Treatment Mask– GlamGlow is an amazing brand overall.  This mask specifically is a non-drying hydration mask that delivers instant and extreme moisture to your skin that leaves it glowing and looking healthier than ever.  Anything GlamGlow I love! 🙂

This concludes my blog post for today!  If you have any questions at all, ask away.

First Birthday Gift Ideas

First Birthday Gift Ideas

Happy Wednesday amazing readers!  Today I wanted to share my ideas of amazing gifts for first birthday’s.  🙂  Naila recently turned one and we celebrated with a family and friend brunch at Bread Winners Cafe and Bakery, a delicious brunch place.  We had so much fun and most importantly we celebrated my baby being here for a whole year already.  🙂  Thinking about how quickly time goes by is a little sad.  But seeing her become more and more independent every day makes me feel like an amazing mother.  This whole experience is just bittersweet.

The gifts that you should purchase for a 1-year-old. 🙂

  1. Wooden Blocks are great for developing problem-solving and perception skills.  These will also keep them entertained for a while. 
  2. Melissa & Doug Puzzle, this brand makes such amazing toys and puzzle’s for kids.  Here is another puzzle and here is Naila’s personal favorite.  Puzzle’s are great because they encourage hand-eye coordination and imaginative play.
  3. First 100 Words Board Book , Naila loves this book.  It contains 100 words along with 100 pictures.  🙂  Toddlers love pictures!
  4. Disposable Bibs are perfect for when going out to eat with a toddler, you can use them and dispose of them and they take up very little space in your diaper bag or purse.
  5. Disposable place mats these are perfect to use on any table if you don’t want a mess or if you don’t want your baby to eat of the table.  You can also use them and then dispose of them.
  6. A straw cup that is spill proof because anything that is spill proof with a toddler is a must.  Naila has this specific one it is amazing and it is definitely spill proof.
  7. Another great idea is a Shaded wagon, this would be very used by the parents and the toddler will definitely enjoy the ride.
  8. Or you can also get a Push car, these are fun as well.
