Hi there!!

As a new mom, there are a lot of questions that come to mind, while blindly entering this unfamiliar room.  While taking on breastfeeding, I decided to go ahead and utilize a book recommended, for my daunting questions. I am loving this book, as it is more informative on the behavior of babies & breastfeeding.  I am thoroughly enjoying it as it is opening my mind.....When I make time to read it, which is usually while breastfeeding.  I love that I can jump around it too.  It's not something I'd ever feel the need to read straight through, which never happens.  Don't go into the room blindly & hope you can figure it all out.  I totally thought the internet would suffice. I would totally recommend utilizing a Lactation Consultant or be prepared by attending La Leche League's meetings or read a book about it.  I had to get more facts & information on my own.  I had too many unanswered questions & decided to dive in.

The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding By La Leche League International.

I've also endured Lansinoh Disposable Breast Pads, which I'm not all that thrilled with.  They were great when I leaked colostrum in my 7th month, as I didn't need pads in all the time.  Since I am nursing so constant & have made this a prominent piece of my routine, I wanted reusable pads.  My favorite reusable breast pads are La Leche League's & these natural organic cotton kind.  La Leche, I love for going out & the Organic for everyday.  La Leche's are formed as a cup.  The Organic are flat & very form fitting.

I'd love to get your nursing feedback. Please feel free to comment below or email me at

Happy Nursing! : )

Mani Monday

It's a more classic, conservative look for the week.  Today, I did Zoya's "Erika" nail polish.  The photo doesn't do the color justice..the color is a bit more golden pink than seen.  I kept this weeks' look simple because I was in a time crunch.  As, Pipa has been gassy, I had to give myself a mani the other day & cram in my paint job, when possible.  I hope you treat yourself to a mani.  : )

Have a great day!!!

Pick Me Up

Hi Guys!!

After our last pediatrician visit, I stopped into our new local Ulta with intentions of getting a new polish for a pick me up.  Well, I wound up getting 2 Zoya polishes, a leopard head wrap, & 2 Stila palettes.  Check out my video for more on that venture.  I will be posting my palette looks on youtube soon!!

Mani Monday


So I decided to do a "Mani Monday"....sorry for the tardiness as it's Tuesday.  Mani Monday will basically consist of a new polish each week.  Hope you like!!!

On every nail I have Essie Sugar Daddy & for fun, Essie A Cut Above Luxeffects on my ring & pinkie nails.  

Penelope's Arrival

Hi Everyone!!

I just wanted to update you and let you know, Penelope has arrived!!  I delivered her Friday August 9, 2013 @ 9:57pm.  She rocks & we can not get enough of her!!  Even her pediatrician thinks she's awesome!!  We did take her home Sunday evening and for the entire 1st week home, we were in & out of the pediatrician's office & at home doing Bililight Therapy to treat her ever escalating jaundice.
This past Monday was our last peds appointment til her one month check up.  YAY!!!!  Don't get me wrong our pediatrician & office staff is amazing & we really got to know everyone, but I'm so excited to get Penelope & myself on a chill schedule at home.  Plus, for the 1st week, I am supposed to relax physically & we walked to every appointment.  So that was a tad taxing but on the plus, I dropped 25lbs of baby weight! : )

Going Home!!!

Hi there!!
