Reflecting on 2017 & Blog goals for 2018

WOW can't believe another year has come and gone! This year my personal life has seen the BIGGEST, BEST, MOST SPECTACULAR change or addition- our son. The pregnancy though brought my career & blogging year to a screeching halt around when I started experiencing really bad morning sickness.

Sephora inside JCPenney Holiday Gift Guide

This year, due to the birth of my son, I became a last minute shopper (insert startled emoji here) BUT thank goodness I was able to check off the beauty lovers on my list thanks to Sephora inside JCPenney! If you’re in the same predicament I was in, Sephora inside JCPenney is a definite go-to to shop an array of high quality (and sometimes exclusive) beauty products. This Holiday season Sephora inside JCPenney became my salvation because aside from being able to shop for other gifts within JCPenney, the Sephora inside had great beauty, skincare and haircare product gift selections of notable beauty brands and at great prices!

Take the JCPenney Holiday Challenge

The Holiday season is here and we are just 5 days away from Christmas! If you’re a budget conscious shopper like I am, I have a tip for you! I took the #JCPHolidayChallenge where I went into my local JCPenney with less than $100 and a list of people I still needed gifts for and came out with fabulous gifts that look like I paid more than I actually did! Another great thing about JCPenney is that it really is a one-stop shop with things for EVERYONE (kids, men, women, make up lovers, home d├ęcor, etc)

Baby's 1st Christmas Tree Picking!

One of the benefits about having the baby right before Christmas is that we get to celebrate "baby's 1st" Holiday events, the downside is that he is so little he won't remember anything (lol), but he will look adorable in pictures! The hubby and I have made it our tradition to go get our Christmas tree the weekend after Thanksgiving and make a festive moment out of it, as you can see here, here, and here. At my baby shower, one of our family friends gave me the CUTEST newborn outfit that was perfect for our Christmas Tree Shopping Adventure. To get in the spirit, the hubby and I coordinated in plaid to capture this memorable occasion.

Oscar Julian's Birth Story

On a Friday night November 17, 2017 at 8:45 pm, our son Oscar Julian came into this world weighing a whopping 9lbs, 10 oz and measuring 22 inches long.

Prior to giving birth, in preparation and out of sheer curiosity, I binged on reading birth stories and I learned that no birth story was the same. I wondered how my son's birth would be and secretly hoped it would be like one of those "ta-dah baby is here in like an hour" kind of thing, but NOPE his birth story unfolded in the span of 2 painful, sleepless and sometimes scary days!

Today I want to share my son's birth story for any mommies, mommies-to-be or anyone who is like me, a birth story lover... or maybe just curious about how I pushed a 9 lb 10 oz baby out!
