Teepee Fairy Lights Update


We Love Our Kohree LED Fairy Lights and just what I needed! When I got my Kohree 20ft 120 LED Fairy Lights, I knew exactly where I want to use it. And it was great! I put it up on my son's play tepee and it was just what the old tepee needed. Now my son loves to hang out in his tepee once again since it's not dark anymore and the bright fairy lights made it more interesting especially at night. I love that this Kohree fairy lights are really bright. My son also loves to use it as his night light. But the best thing is the fact that it's got a timer remote! I don't have to worry about keeping it on and off. It stays on for 4 hours and goes off after that. That's really perfect since my son uses it as a night light too. Overall, me and my son loves our Kohree LED Fairy Lights.

Edgar's Bakery Coconut Cream Cake


Here I go again! One day I'm trying to eat healthy, the next day, I'm giving in to my sweet cravings! Well, it's so hard to resist this Coconut Cream Cake from Edgar's Bakery. We have tried different kind of cakes from Edgar's but this one is hands-down our all-time favorite. It's creamy and moist but not too sweet. My son loves to pick out and eat the coconut flakes because they taste great too. Not dry and hard at all like some I tasted from another bakery. One time Hubby went to buy some, he found out they ran out of it. I guess a lot of people like this particular cake from Edgar's too.

Anyway, since I am craving for one, I asked Hubby to get me one. He called before going to make sure they have one available. Luckily, they got two so Hubby got one. So for now, I will forget about healthy eating and indulge in my craving.

Simple, Healthy Meal


I admit, I really love foods and eating foods. This is the reason why I can never follow a strict diet where I can only eat certain types of food. But I try to eat healthy meals most of the time. Most of the days, I try to stay away from rice. For this meal, I have baked Japanese sweet potato, baked plantains, buttered mixed vegetables, and, baked salmon fillet. If I meal prep, I usually prep 3-4 days worth of meals. And yes, when you are a meal prepper, you are fine with eating the same meals 3-4 days in  a row.

No Boundaries Workout Outfit


When it comes to working out, I really need all the motivation I can get. With a hyper-active toddler and a needy infant, working out is more complicated for me. But because I really want to get my pre-baby body back, I try to motivate myself and do it. One thing that I have been doing is have a workout calendar where I can X out the day once I have done my workout. Another thing I do to motivate myself is getting cute workout outfits.

My latest workout outfit is this "No Boundaries Juniors Bra Cup Tank" and "No Boundaries Juniors Skinny All Over Floral Print Yoga Pant". The tank top is only $5.88 while the yoga pant is $9.88, both from Walmart.com. I think this outfit is really cute and I did workout wearing this!

Run Baby Lightweight Sports Sunglasses


I love my Run Baby Lightweight Sports Sunglasses! I am very impressed that it came with a durable and high-quality sunglasses case. I think that's great to ensure the sunglasses are protected and secure even when one's not wearing it. When I tried it on for the first time, it fits perfectly and I actually looked good with it. It is very fashionable yet also very functional. Even Hubby loves to use it when he's driving because it the day bright yellow lens allows him to see clearly. It is also lightweight yet sturdy. And I love the color combination of the blue frames and the yellow lens. Of course, my boy loves to wear it too! At a reasonable price range, I would say this Run Baby Sports Sunglasses is a great deal. Plus it comes with a lifetime warranty!

LeapFrog Epic Kids Tablet


For his 4th birthday, Hubby and I decided to get Dylan the LeapFrog Epic Kids Tablet. I had to do a lot of research though before deciding to get this one. He did have a Nabi Jr. when he was barely 2 years old. The Nabi Jr. was really educational and he learned a lot of things from that. But, it lags so bad and the operating system was not good at all.

So after careful consideration, we got him this Leapfrog Epic. It comes with about 50 free, fun, and educational apps. It was so easy to set up and the screen looks awesome. Dylan easily got the hang of it and he is definitely entertained by it. For $128, I would say that this is a great buy for my 4-year old!

Victoria's Secret Goodies


It has been a while since I last shopped at Victoria's Secret. I think it's high time I treat myself. Thanks to Hubby for giving me $100 Victoria's Secret gift card for my birthday. Of course, I did not spend it immediately and waited till they have their semi-annual sale. That way, my $100 can go a long way.


I got their 5 for $27.50 panties, pajama shorts and tanks set, toiletry case, a Love Addict body mist, and a crew neck tee. I also got free shipping with that. Overall, I am happy with my VS goodies!

Dylan's 4th Birthday


And just like that, my little boy Dylan turned 4! We celebrated a day early on the 12th because Daddy has to work on his actual birthday which is the 13th. It was just a simple celebration with Daddy, Mama, Baby Zoey, and Big Bro Nate. Since he is currently obsessed with construction vehicles, we ordered a custom excavator cake from Edgar's Bakery. I also got him construction birthday hats, cake toppers and construction cone candles. Daddy got him 2 foil balloons from Walmart which he picked himself. 

And for presents, we got him the LeapFrog Epic Tablet for kids. He also got a new Veggie Tales DVD from his Aunt Camille. Plus he got a "Horton Hears A Who" book, a firetruck, a dump truck, and a birthday card from Nate, Natalie, and John. Overall, he was very happy with his "birthday party" as he calls it.

10DollarMall Outfit


I know, weather is still pretty cold here in Alabama. Still too cold to wear shorts and sleeveless tops, in fact. But I won't let that stop me from trying on my latest 10DollarMall finds. I am always on the lookout for when my favorite online store launch sales and special offers.For this outfit, I only paid $7.49 for the corset/bustier-inspired top. Meanwhile, I got the black shorts for only $5.99. My crochet ballet flats was also a clearance find from target for only $14.99. I think this outfit will be perfect for running errands or a grocery trip once the weather is finally warm enough for this type of clothing.

Ab Rocket


So I got this Ab Rocket as an anniversary present this year. I am very excited to start using it to see if it really works. In all honesty, I know I can't use this exercise equipment consistently but I will try my best. If I really want to tone and trim my belly bulge. I ordered this via Amazon and it shipped pretty fast. Assembly was easy and quick with Hubby doing it for me. I started using it with the easy/beginner spring installed. But I found it too easy so after just a week, I asked Hubby to install the next level spring. This time, I found the resistance working since I actually started feeling sore in my abs after using the Ab Rocket for at least 5 minutes a day. I will try to use this at least a few minutes a day and hopefully I will see results in a month or two. I will keep you all updated.

Bluer Than Blue Outfit


It's been a long time since I posted an outfit post in any of my social media sites. Well, after having a baby last October, I surely did not feel like posing in front of the camera. But two months after having a baby, I decided to brave it and posed in this birthday photo. This was taken during my 34th birthday last January 08.

For some reason, I am so into the color blue lately. That's why I got this Nine West Zip N' Go Satchel in blue color. I got this satchel as my birthday present. This was on sale at Macy's and I only paid $45.14 for it. Of course, I have to get a dress with something blue in it too. This dress was a real steal of a deal at only $7.49 from 10DollarMall.com. As for my blue suede pumps, I got it from Charlotte Russe for only $14.99.

So 'Pure Sophie Giraffe Teething Ring


So Baby Zoey, started the drooling phase early! I have read that drooling is one of the signs that teething will be starting soon. Aside from the drooling, she also started chewing on her hands. When Dylan started teething, we just got him teethers from Walmart. Of course, those teethers are made in China! Ones we got for him are the ones with water/some kind of liquid inside them. Of course, it did not take long before they got busted.

This time around, we want to make sure we will get something that's worth the money. So we decided to get Sophie the Giraffe teething ring. It's got really good reviews, made with all natural materials, and most importantly, it's not made in China! Hubby went all the way to Babies R Us just to get Sophie. I hope Baby Z will like her!

The Belly Burner Belt


Whenever I find products that really work, I will surely share about it. I love to share products that I have tried and tested and have been proven effective. In this case, I am sharing The Belly Burner Belt. This is the second one that I bought. I got my first one a few months after having my first baby about 4 years ago. It was actually an impulse buy; in my desperate search for something that will help me get rid of my post-baby bulge. I would wear it every time I do my workouts. Then when I found out that I sweat more while wearing it, I decided to wear it the whole day,everyday!

With moderate workout and The Belly Burner Belt, I was able to fit tight back to my size 00 skinny jeans. I would say that this really helped me a lot. So for the second time, I got me another one of this since my old one is already tore up from so much use. The good thing is, this is very affordable at only $14.99 at Walmart. I can't wait to get back to my post-baby body soon!

30-Day Plank/Cardio Challenge


Hello February! I am starting this new month with a purpose, that I promise to myself. And that purpose is to work on getting back to my pre-pregnancy weight. To be honest, I really don't have that much to lose but it is something that is important to me. I always feel good when I'm lighter and I always have more energy when I workout regularly.

As far as the pounds I want to lose, I only have 5 something to shed to get to my target weight. So I am not doing this challenge mainly to lose weight. It's actually more on the toning effects of this workout. Three months after having a baby, my belly is still saggy and bulgy. Hopefully this challenge will help me achieve what I am hoping to achieve. Wish me luck!
