Maricela Monday’s: Weekly Favorites

Happy Monday, I hope that you are having an amazing day!  Today you should shine so brightly that others have no choice but to light up with you. 🙂

These past few weeks have been great for Naila and I.  I am literally her personal photographer and honestly I enjoy taking pictures of her and I adore dressing her up.  It makes my soul happy!  As a stay at home mom it was important for me to find a hobby, something to do while taking care of Naila and for now I have found it. 🙂  I can say that it isn’t for everyone to love.  I will talk about how Naila became a brand rep and how important it is to support small businesses in another blog post.  Now that I am done rambling about this now lets move on to my weekly favorites.

Today I will be sharing my favorite skin care products that can be found on Amazon and they are very inexpensive.

  1. The first item is the St.Ives Facial Scrub and Mask that I use every morning.  This facial scrub is amazing, it helps keep my oily skin under control and leaves my skin feeling smooth and re-energized.  I definitely recommed it.
  2. Next are the Yes To Tomatoes Clear Skin Detoxifying Charcoal Facial Wipes, long name but worth it.  🙂  These are little black wipes that rid skin of nasty impurities.  Perfect for taking off makeup, to detoxify skin, and deep clean.  Try these out!

 

This concludes my Weekly Favorites!

Baby’s Favorite Reads

Happy Saturday!  I hope everyone’s day has been great and productive so far.  🙂  If you guys didn’t know, Naila loves books.  Which is great because the importance of reading to young children cannot be emphasised enough and we as parents need to make reading a priority.

Today I will be sharing some of Naila’s favorite books.

  1. The Very Hungry Caterpillar

The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a picture book written and illustrated by Eric Carle. It follows the life cycle of a caterpillar as it starts by coming out of its egg, all the way to becoming a butterfly.  It teaches the days of the week and counting up to five.  Most of Naila’s books are bilingual.

2. Goodnight Moon

Goodnight Moon was written by Margaret Wise Brown and illustrated by Clement Hurd.  It is a classic children’s bedtime story written about a rabbit’s routine before he goes to bed.  Before his bedtime, the rabbit goes around the room and notices items within eyesight and says goodnight to all of them.  As the story continues, the rabbit gets more and more tired before finally saying “Goodnight noises everywhere,” just as he falls asleep.

3. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

This book has a very entertaining and interactive story line about the alphabet.  It begins with the beginning of the alphabet climbing to the top of the coconut tree.  The remaining letters follow action with a rhyming tune to follow.  The letters are having a great time until the tree becomes too full and “Chicka, Chicka, Boom, Boom!”

4. Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?

The repetitive structure makes it a perfect read-aloud with very young children.  This book is beloved for its brightly colored art by Eric Carle and simple, rhyming text by Bill Martin Jr.  The lines are easy to memorize, encouraging even toddlers to “read” along.  Pre-readers can practice identifying color and animal words.
