OOTD - Webster Miami dress

Image
I'm attending a girlfriend's baby shower and love dressing up. 
I'm wearing a coral Webster Miami dress and Webster Miami flats. Both are from Target. I love those designer collaborations.






Sweet and Saucy

Image
Last weekend, I took my toddler on a park playdate and outing to Sweet and Saucy's new store in Newport. How exciting that they are in Orange County now!

The store was spacious with cute vintage furniture and their beautiful display of cake stands holding treats. I loved that they had mini and regular cupcakes in a lot of different flavors.

I ended up getting a vanilla mini for my toddler and lemon, s'more, and chocolate nutella for me. I also got a mini banana cream pie too. Not bad for $13.

Their location is across from Crystal Cove State Park which has an amazing view. Double score!

June Birchbox

Image
This June Birchbox is dedicated to the "inner jetsetter". Here's what I got:

beautyblender blendercleanser - This soy-based formula gave my makeup brushes an overdue cleaning.

Comodynes self tanning intensive - I'm tan already and breastfeeding. I plan on having my brother or hubby be my guinea pig so I can test this out.

Number 4 Super Comb Prep & Protect - The leave in treatment smells yummy and made my strands super soft. A+!

theBalm cosmetics Stainiac in Beauty Queen - The packaging screams lip gloss but it's a lip and cheek stain. It gave my lips a just bitten look and cheeks a little glow.

tili Bags - It's meant to use through airport security but I like it for my diaper bag to hold my stuff.

John Varvatos Star USA - Hubby doesn't wear cologne usually so I gave the sample to my brother.

So Emotional Volume 2

Congrats to my nephew Phi Unit (@phiunit) for getting featured in MTV Hive.

He and Cousin Cole just released So Emotional Volume 2. I've listened to the mix and love the lounge-y vibe and funky mix. Go Phi Unit! Be sure to download the mix.

Monthly stickers

Image
When I'm not doing my mommy or wifey duties, I like to browse Etsy to see what I can find.

My latest find is monthly stickers for babies. I ordered these cute chevron and multicolored stickers that I'll put on bebe's onesie every time she turns another month older. She just turned one month yesterday and I got to bust out the 1 month already. Hooray! The other pack of stickers will be for a preggo girlfriend for her upcoming baby.





The effect I'm going for is in my Baby pinterest
board
except my baby will be clothed and have the appropriate
sticker affixed.

Tortoise cat eye sunglasses

Image
I have been seeing Kourtney Kardashian in cat eye sunglasses and decided I needed a pair. Thank goodness for Ebay. I found these beauties for $9 online. I have already gotten compliments from friends on it. Guess I made a good purchase.





May Birchbox

Image
Gossip girl, here. J/K. I finally tried out my May Gossip Girl Birchbox goodies.

Algenist Firming & Lifting Cream - I gave this sample to my mom and waiting to see what she thinks.

Dior Miss Dior - This perfume is strong with floral notes. It's definitely a notice me scent.

Dior Diorshow Extase - it gives me a doll like look and is lighter than the Dior Show I'm used to.

Kerastase Age Premium Bain Substantif - I love this shampoo. It makes my hair super soft and is super moisturizing. I used up the sample real quick and might have to get a full bottle.

Kerastase Age Premium Masque Substantif - This hair mask made my hair silky smooth. Love love love that.

Sales

Being home with a newborn allows me lots of time to browse online during her naptime. (I know I should be napping too.)

Here are a few sales I've been spying on:

Levi's - Their semi annual sale has great jeans under $20.

Joie -15% of boutique sakes will go to The Fresh Air Fund.

Victoria's Secret - It's the famous semi annual sale. If only they had nursing bras! I love their PINK sweats though.

Nine West- So many cute shoes on sale. I wonder when I'll wear wedges and heels again.

Urban Outfitters - I'm bummed I missed their free shipping special. They do have their free shopping for orders over $50 and swim sale going on.

Happy shopping! I wonder what I'll get.

Pocket Nanny

Image
I have been wanting this baby item for some time and finally saw it at my Babies R Us store.

For $24.99, you get a little device that fits in the palm of your hand. New parents can log diaper changes, feedings, sleep and any other alarms you would like.

This little device is pretty easy to use. You just push a button to say when the last diaper change was, when you fed the baby, and when the baby is sleeping. It'll count down how long it has been. The nightlight function is great for late night feedings too.

OOTD - Jason Wu for Target tee

Image
Dinner plans tonight! Oh, what to wear...


I'm wearing a Jason Wu for Target tee, Brass Plum leggings, and Puma Sneakerinas.


Portola Coffee Lab's Cake Monkey Bakery

Image
I read somewhere that Portola Coffee is now selling Cake Monkey baked goods and had to try.

I took my precocious toddler to SOCO recently and had to buy some treats for us to try.

I got the salted caramel monkey bread and crumble chip cookie (dark chocolate, milk chocolate, caramel, And crumble). The monkey bread was delish and made a perfect afternoon snack. The cookie was a Lil decadent for me but hubby had no problem eating it since he's a dark chocolate fan.

I can't wait to return and try other baked goods. Yum!

OOTD - Stripes

Image
Oh, what to wear to a kid's birthday party. Thought this outfit would be cute and comfy. 

I'm wearing an Ezra striped top, Brass Plum leggings, and Puma Sneakerinas.



N'ice Cream

Image
That saying "I scream for ice cream" is definitely true in my household.

I took my lil toddler out to SOCO in Costa Mesa recently. We tried N'ice Cream vanilla and salted caramel flavors. I decided to get the vanilla one to share. I loved the vanilla bean flavor but I'm sure my lil one loved it more since she ate half of the cup.

Guest post - Nom nom nom - coconut yogurt

Image
Note: My friend Mary H. is sharing a treat she recently ate. Mmm! I am eliminating dairy from my diet because I think it might be affecting the baby so I thought I'd try the coconut yogurt in place of cows milk yogurt. Its like a pina colada in a cup! Delicious and has some great nutritional content too. Bonus!

Guest post - Beauty must have

Image
Note: My friend Mary H. is my guest blogger and sharing her beauty must have.



I LOVE this mask - love how it makes my skin feel. I use it weekly and it leaves my skin glowing and soft.  It was used on me during a spa treatment (best facial ever) at the Island Hotel in Fashion Island a few years ago. I purchased it after the facial and have been using it ever since. Its great!

Betsey Johnson

The iconic Betsey Johnson store on Melrose is closing according to Racked LA. How sad!

I checked their site and saw a lot of cool dresses on sale that are 30% to 60% off. Check out their site to see that great deals.

Guest post - OOTD: Michael Kors tee

Image
Note: my friend Mary H. is my guest blogger and sharing her outfit of the day.



Got this Michael Kors shirt from TJ Maxx for a steal of $25. Love the color, the material and how it hangs. Its a little loose but fitted in the hips - great shirt for hiding a post pregnancy tummy!

Guest post - My favorite jewelry organizer

Image
Note: my friend Mary H. is my guest blogger this week and will be sharing some of her favorite things. Enjoy!



This amazing gem hangs in my closet so no more bulky jewelry box. It keeps my jewelry easy to find, organized and makes things a lot easier when picking something out for an outfit - rather than sifting through a messy box!

The Donuterry

Image
My little brother told me about the best donuts in Huntington Beach and brought me some as a push present after I had my baby.

In honor of national donut day on Friday, I had to go before a park playdate. I got a dozen for $7.89. In my box, you'll see strawberry, red velvet, apple, apple cinnamon and pumpkin. Mmm, the pumpkin one is yum and red velvet reminds me of a yummy cake. Not pictured is their strawberry nutella. I also got a free one with my order.

The Webster Miami ballet flat

Image
I got a nice pleasant surprise at my door yesterday afternoon. My Target package came in. I ordered a few items from The Webster Miami collection. My coral and palm tree ballet flats came in. Ever since I saw in People Style that embellished flats are in, I knew I wanted to find a pair. Cute eh?
