CARDIGAN AND LEGGINGS

Mustache leggings go with everything! We can mix and match different colors with them. Evan wore this outfit about a week ago. Texas weather is bipolar all year round. Most days Evan stays warm in a cardigan. I am sad to see this year go, but I am so excited for what's to come. I have so many posts coming up and giveaways lined up. Thank you for your immense support. This blogs means so much to me, and receiving your sweet emails really brighten up my day. Until next time!

BREASTFEEDING PROBLEMS

I have been breastfeeding for a little over thirteen months. I never thought I would breastfeed this long. I originally wanted to breastfeed for six months and then switch to formula but that didn't happen. I am so glad I have stuck with it for this long. It has been such a difficult struggle and just when I think it's getting easier something always happens. Evan recently puntured my nipple (tmi sorry) about two weeks ago. Worst pain ever!!! I always heard stories about babies biting their mothers and I never thought it would happen to me. From the beginning Medela Tender Care has always been a life savor. I only used it a couple times in the beginning because it works miracles. After Evan bit me I tried to let it heal on it's own, but every single time I would let Evan nurse it would just open the cut back up. At this point I was convinced that my breastfeeding days were over. Thank goodness my sister reminded me I had this nipple cream. Once I applied it by the next morning it was healed! I still waited another day to nurse Evan just to reassure that it was completely healed. If you are breastfeeding I highly recommend this product.
If this has ever happened to you please share your experience! I searched online but didn't find much help.

GLITZ AND GLAM

I was asked to be part of a personal style challenge featuring Brilliant Earth Jewelry. I gladly accepted the challenge because I love dressing up for the holidays. I put a holiday look together for all of my glamorous readers. This look is so me! I love something simple, but I always have to throw on some glitz. You can do so much with a little black dress. I would do this look with a messy bun to show off the diamond earrings. The rose gold diamond ring will really bring out the rose gold in that amazing clutch. Throw on heels along with matte red lipstick to complete this look. Feel and look beautiful this holiday season! Xoxo

HOLIDAY LOOKS FOR BABY

I am a huge supporter of small buisnesses. When I come across a shop I really love you guys know I always share. I came across Lilla Barn on Etsy a couple weeks ago. I am really loving everything. It's hard to just want to purchase one item. I really hope I can style her product on Evan in the future. This is one shop I know I would continuasly buy from. She was so kind to offer 10% off with code lilla10 until December 15.(which is her deadline for Christmas orders) I put together a holiday look for boys and girls with items from Lilla Barn and other awesome shops. You can find Lilla Barn on Instagram and Facebook. Happy shopping friends!

DECEMBER WISH LIST FOR BABY

1. Hunter 'Kid's First' Rain Boot- These are perfect for those bad weather days. Now that Evan is walking these would be perfect, and he wouldn't ruin any of his other shoes. [$50]
2. Baby Infinity Scarf- How adorable is this scarf?! I am just in love. All of the scarfs I come across are way too girly, but the plaid and colors on this one make it a must have for my guy. [$15] 
3. Knitted Hat- You can never go wrong with gifting a hat. This one is just the perfect neautral color to go with everything. [$17]
4. Plan Toy Geometric Sorting Board- Evan really enjoys stacking blocks and sorting shapes with other toys, and I think he would really enjoy this. Every day I sit down and play with him to help him learn his shapes and colors. I figure the earlier I start the better. [$18]
5. Man Cub Shirt- Every little boy needs this shirt. I have seen this tee featured all over the web. We need one! You have to check out all of her product. You'll love it! [$34]
6. Harem Pants- These are by far the cutest pants I have seen. They look so comfy and the fabric is so rad! It was so hard just choosing one product from this shops. I love it all! [$29] 
7. 50 Counting Bears with 5 Cups- I follow a mom on Instagram that taught her son how to sort colors by 18 months. I really want to purchase this for Evan and see how he likes it. Any toy that involves stacking or sorting keeps my son entertained. I'm anxious to give this a try. [$8]

FAREWELL NOVEMBER

Our Thanksgiving was great. We spent all day with friends and family. We stuffed our faces with turkey and stuffing. This time of year is magical. I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. November was good and it's hard to believe that December is here. I don't know about you but I have officially started Christmas shopping. So many shops had amazing deals all weekend it was hard not to shop. Did you shop this weekend?
 I hope everyone enjoys this holiday season.

You guys are probably bored of this sequence jacket, but if I could I would wear it everyday. It's so fab!

EVAN'S FIRST BIRTHDAY

I finally uploaded a couple of pictures from Evan's first birthday. Everything came out amazing. My sister is a party planner and I honestly don't know what I would have done with out her. She did a phenomenal job. As you know his birthday was vintage circus/carnival themed. We had peanuts, popcorn, hot dogs, games, prizes, and even face paint. Everyone had a really good time including Evan. 



Oh la la... y Olé

Let me start off by saying this online children's boutique I just discovered is so chic. Oh la la y Olé is a new Spanish online designer baby and children's boutique that offers a unique selection of trendy, high quality, and affordable clothes from the best Spanish brands. I am obsessed with shopping online, so when I come across something new and fab I must share. They have a select collection, which makes online shopping extra easy. Oh la la y Olé is offering 10% off until November 30 to celebrate their online shop launch. Happy Shopping!!

KEEP ME COZY

Lately my go to wardrobe is a comfy sweater, jeans or leggings with a pair of flat boots. As a mom I don't always have time to dress up. I just throw something on and make it look cute. Especially with this cold weather. I just want to be extra cozy and warm. I have found so many cute Christmas jumpers to keep you extra cozy this Holiday! It was so hard to narrow it down to just six. Which one is your favorite?

I saw a pair of boots on my Instagram feed that caught my eye. I still can't believe they are from Aeropostale. I never thought I would shop there again. Haha Almost everything is on sale plus 40% off one item and 30% off of anything else. On top of all the discounts you recieve free two day shipping if you pay with PayPal. Talk about savings! I scored the boots for $14, two sweaters for $6, and a vest for $12(I did a separate transaction to recieve 40% off). I didn't find much, but I did save myself some money!

COUNTDOWN

The countdown officially begins. TEN days until Evan turns ONE!! His vintage circus themed birthday will be magical. I have been on DIY mode trying to get things done, but I've realized I'm not very good. I see so many moms on Instagram  and see how amazing their projects come out. I have so many ideas but when it comes down to making it, it looks horrible. I have so many rough drafts before I get a decent final product. Anyone feel this way or is it just me? Luckily for me my sister plans amazing parties and she's helping me with pretty much everything. I'm trying not to stress, but I haven't even sent out invitations! Ahh I am the number one procrastinator. Wish me luck getting this party organized! 
Today was extra chilly. We had to throw on a chunky sweater that we purchased at Target.
