To start off, Naila is now 16 months old, she is all over the place and she has such an amazing little personality.  She keeps me busy!  Check out her Instagram @nailamaritim she is a small shop representative and in her highlights we offer lots of discount codes for amazing clothing, and accessories for family and friends.

No major changes in the past few months, I am still a SAHM.  I take pictures of Naila almost every day as the weather allows for our small shop repping.  If you follow her Instagram you will understand what it all cosists of.  Always remember to support small shops.  It is important because you are what will keep them in business.

I am currently brainstorming on amazing topics to talk about here.  I wanted to ask you fellow readers to provide input on what you would like to read about next.  I would love the feedback because I want to keep my readers engaged as much as possible.  Leave a comment here letting me know or message me on Instagram or Facebook if that is easier for you, please and thank you!

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. ūüôā

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. ūüôā ¬†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. ¬†ūüôā ¬†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!

FridaBaby NoseFrida the Snotsucker

FridaBaby NoseFrida the Snotsucker

Happy  Monday lovely readers!

Today I wanted to share a product that has been a game changer for my baby’s stuffy nose.

ALL-YOU-NEED-TO-KNOW-ABOUT-A-NOSEFRIDA

The NoseFrida which was Invented by a Swedish Pediatrics Ear, Nose and Throat doctor, is a safe and hygienic way to get boogers out from newborns, up until they’re toddling their way through potty training.

A stuffy nose can make a baby feel extremely uncomfortable which can lead to lots of crying.  Which is why today I am here to make your life as a mom a little less hectic.

It is very simple, just place the the tip of the snotsucker on the the tip of baby’s nostril and suck the boogers right out. ¬†The snotsucker has a filter, none of the boogers will end up in your mouth.

Click here to purchase the Snotsucker, it comes with additional filters.

Must have items for a newborn part 1

Must have items for a newborn part 1

I am a mom to a sweet 9 month old baby girl.  I always want the best for her and I want her to always be as comfortable as possible.  Our babies will not be able to let us know if something is bothering them for a while, which is why we as moms have to make sure that we are always watching over them and doing what we think is best for them.

In this post I will list and link the items that I found were a must for me, I still use all of these items 9 months into motherhood.  I will place a description of each item and I will then post a picture of the item where you can click and it will take you directly to the Amazon website were you can purchase.  As a mom shopping on Amazon is a must.

  1.  Chemical free diapers perfect for newborn skin.  These diapers are the best in my opinion, you get so many for such a good price and the quality is amazing.  They are very soft as they are made out of cotton.  Click on the image below to purchase.  Below the diaper picture is a link to the wipes that I use as well.

2.  Burp cloths are a must to clean up any spit up or any mess that you might need to clean up.  When you have a newborn these are your best friend, I still use them to clean her up after she eats her puree foods.  Click on the image below, I love these because they are durable and very absorbent.

3. My daughter started sleeping through the night at 2 months old and I thank the Dock a tot Deluxe. ¬†I know it was this for sure because there has been nights that we don’t use it and she wakes up a few times throughout the night. ¬†Click on the image below. ¬†Below the first image is the Dock a tot Grand which is for 9 months and up. ¬†Trust me moms it is worth the money.

4.  If you ever want to get some time to yourself and have someone else feed your baby you will need baby bottles.  I love these because they are small and easy to wash.  The nipple and lid are all in one, no need to have more than 2 pieces per bottle while washing.  Also, they have fun quotes on the bottom of the bottle.  Click on the image below.

5. A Bottle warmer to warm up the babies milk.  Below is the one that I use, it is perfect because it has a setting specifically to warm up breast milk, it helps preserve the nutrients.  Click on the image below.

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to read my post.  Soon I will post a part 2 for the newborn must haves.  Always remember it is a beautiful day to have a beautiful day.
