Nessa's World: August 2014





This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Huggies and Latina Mom Bloggers. However, all opinions expressed are my own.
Last Saturday Evan and I had the opportunity to take part in a local Huggies event. It was such a great experience, not only did I meet amazing bloggers, but I had the chance to make new friends. Our host Ana Cruz, from Rollos de Mujeres has such a great personality and is such a wonderful mother. Brenda from Mejorando Mi Hogar is such a sweet and caring women. We got the chance to get to know each other and give advice from one mom to another. Only a mother knows how crazy life with a child can be. We shared ideas on how to stay active with our little movers on a daily basis.
 Staying active and healthy is extremely important to us, and staying active in comfort makes it so much easier. This is why we chose Huggies Little Movers. The new Huggies Little Movers provides Double Grip Strips that give baby a comfier fit over time than Pampers Cruisers. Evan started taking off his diapers and refusing to wear one until we started using Huggies Little Movers. I know for sure that the new feature makes it so much comfier for Evan to run around in. Huggies Little Movers have been redeveloped with new Double Grip Strips- soft Velcro strips on the sides of front diaper panel for an improved fit. Aside from the comfortable fit I'm sure Evan is obsessed with the Mickey Mouse characters that makes him want to keep his diaper on. 
As the months go by my little guy is more active. We have to keep busy and I'm sharing with you a few tips that keep this little mover happy and entertained.

 Tips on how to stay active with your little one.
  • Go outdoors! Soak up some vitamin D and chase your little one around. Mornings and evenings(before sunset) are the perfect time to get a little bit of exercise. Evan loves to play soccer or just run around. Don't be afraid of the sun, get out and make sure to stay fully hydrated.
  • Turn up the music and dance. Evan loves it when we jump around and go crazy with his favorite beats. I burn and few calories while Evan has a huge smile on his face. 
  • Play dates are so much fun. Our kids love them and we do too. It gives our kids a chance to interact with other kids and have another kid similar in age to explore with.
Celebrate your little one’s moving moments by visiting and uploading a photo or video of your baby’s best moves! You’ll receive a Huggies coupon for $2.00 and get the chance to be featured on the Huggies Facebook page.

You can find Huggies Little Movers in grocery stores and mass retailers nationwide. Remember to enjoy these moving moments. They are priceless!! 



Our Summer has been full of excitement. Every month my almost two year old wants to play more and sleep less. I literally plan out what activities we will do the night before just to be fully prepared. Entertaining Evan isn't difficult because the activities are endless, but there is always that one activity that makes our kids over the moon excited. For us our BackYard Ocean pool has saved my butt for the past few months. Evan loves to be outside, but some days it's just too hot to be running after him. The Texas heat can be killer, but this pool has made our Summer so much better. We are no longer stuck inside because it's too hot. We put our bathing suits on and go cool off in our Party Pool.
Setting it up was super easy. Luckily we have an air pump and it didn't take long to inflate. There are two things that made me chose this particular pool, the cup holders and built in steps. I can sit in the pool with them and enjoy a nice cold beverage while they play and scream of joy. The kids think it's super cool to have drinks in the pool and most adults that we have invited over for a swimming party love the cup holders. It's brilliant! Splashing water everywhere and pretending to be fish is what makes them happy.
Hot Summer days are so much fun for us. BackYard Ocean has great pools at great prices.They have a huge Summer SALE going on right now. I have been bragging about our pool all Summer I had to share with you guys. Even though Summer is almost over, you better believe we will be taking advantage of our Party Pool. Thank you so much BackYard Ocean!! xoxo



Salt City Emporium was one of the first brands I first discovered after having Evan. Their unique style made me fall in love. Every season they come out with something new and different. I am always anxious to see what they have in store. I was personally smitten by their Salt Carnival line, which is sadly no longer available, but their new line Stars and Stones launched today. Our first pair of Salt City Emporium leggings will always be a top favorite. I remember Evan would wear them often, and by the time he outgrew them you could tell those leggings were put to work. They were discolored from wearing them so much. It was sad to see them go, but I quickly purchased other styles. 
Leggings c/o Salt City Emporium
After every purchase I always noticed a huge improvement in their product. Each time the fabric felt softer and more durable. We received two pair of leggings from Salt City a couple months back and I am in awe. This by far has been the best improvement yet. We have had no discoloration, no shrinking, but plenty of room for him to grow and play in. Evan wears them outside, runs around in them, gets them extra dirty, and after every single wash they remain looking new.

 I am so excited to purchase something from their new line. Their modern, hip, and unique style should be in every little one's wardrobe. Check out their new Stars and Stones line and tell me which item is your favorite!! xoxo



This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Wet-Nap but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #showusyourmess

Messes at my house hold are inevitable. My almost two year old loves to grab and play with everything. I find myself constantly washing his hands or bathing him. I recently came across a great product that makes our messes so much easier. Wet-Nap has become a favorite. I literally carry it everywhere.
Whatever I have planned for the day, Wet-Nap wipes are always next to me just in case of any messy accidents. Our day is full of fun and adventure. Evan loves to draw all over everything, including himself. Once he completes his art work, we clean up and get ready for lunch. 
Evan ditches the silverware and digs in. This creates a even bigger mess. I absolutely love that I can just pop out a Wet-Nap and remove all germs from his little hands. After a day full of adventure going outside is a great way to end Evan's day. He loves to play with sticks, tries to grab bugs, and does what any boy his age would do. Regardless of any of our messy situations, Wet-Nap does the job. This product is softer and stronger than before. It moisturizes with aloe and smells amazing. As a mother finding the best products for my son and finding those that will make my life a little easier are a win in my book. This Summer has been extra messy and extra fun. I wouldn't have it any other way.
