STLYISH SUN PROTECTIVE BEACHWEAR AND SWIMWEAR

By on July 15, 2018

Summer is here which for us means plenty of beach days, ice cream, and sunscreen! If you know me then you know I crazy about sun protection and always wearing spf and clothing to cover my skin from the sun. Same goes for my little lady. Lila has some of the fairest skin I have ever seen so keeping it out of the sun is a must. Also she sneezes the second she gets into the sun so it’s sunglasses and a hat for her always- just like mama.

Keeping covered is way easier said than done when it comes to the summer months.  My daughter lives to be in the water and always her best self when at the pool or beach. So while I loved matching her in the water, I needed more! I found this amazing brand called Cabana Life that actually has UPF 50 in their clothing and blocks 98% of UVA + UVB rays. *Cue a large sigh of relief* One look at their site and I saw that they had an entire mommy and me section, which I was instantly drawn to! There are tons of styles of beachwear and swimwear to pick from that are matching and all the patterns are so cute. I have seen UPF swimwear before but usually the clothing is a solid color and it’s still a swimsuit exposing a lot of skin. Well Cabana Life knows what’s up and has something for everyone! From a 2 piece to a uni-suit (I got a uni-suit and let me tell you I am already putting more colors  on my wishlist).) And if that isn’t a enough there’s also a matching set for my little lady.

I hope everyone is having a fabulous summer and will be able to look back at all the memories in a few weeks when school starts. Long live summer!

 

The 3 S’s To Stay Safe From The Sun This Summer:

+ SUNBLOCK / put it on 15 mins before sun exposure and reply every 90 minutes you are in the sun.

+ SPF SWIMWEAR / let your swimwear do the work for you and check for a suit that has UPF and blocks UVA + UVB rays.

+ STAY HYDRATED / an easy way to remember to drink water is treating yourself to a cute new tumbler. I know that having a cute cup with a straw turns drinking water into an accessory.

MOM LIFE | MUST HAVES WITH BABY

THE PERFECT PACKING SYSTEM FOR EVERY SEASON OF LIFE

By on July 1, 2018

I have been carrying a bag for as long as I can remember. And I think most women have. There are just so many things to bring along. Keys, lipgloss, phone, wallet, etc. And then you have a baby and somehow the space that was solely occupied by you and was bursting at the seems, now has to be shared by 2. It took me a long time to find a bag that could be shared by two comfortably. But I finally found a flawless packing system and the only con I have listed on my pro / con list is that I didn’t get it sooner.

The bag I’m sharing with you is the Lorie from Lily Jade Co. If you haven’t heard of Lily Jade Co then you might not even be on Instagram. Seriously their bags are everywhere on the ‘gram and no question why because they are STUNNING! And I guarantee you that if you go to your trending page right now your eye will catch one of their gorgeous and vibrant bags in a photo.

I went with the Lorie bag because it’s a large crossover tote that look gorgeous but can hold a TON of stuff. Being able to hold a ton of stuff is a priority in a diaper bag. She is the perfect “daily” bag and I take her everywhere I go. It also perfectly first my 13″ MacBook Pro which is praise hands emoji in my book. You can also carry it 3 ways: tote, messenger, and backpack. I mostly carry backpack style so that my hands are free, but I also love carrying it tote style too.

The most unique thing about this bag is that it can be paired with a companion bag that fits perfectly inside. The Danielle is a bag that I will be reaching for long after the days of baby. From the second I took this bag out of the packaging I knew it was my favorite bag I have ever owned. It is just the right size and is absolutely gorgeous in person! The color is rich and vibrant and the quality is hands down perfection. It’s everything I ever wanted in a bag.

So whether you’re expecting, looking to upgrade your current diaper bag, or are looking for a freaking amazing lifestyle/travel bag this one right here is a winner.
