A PHOTOSHOOT WITH PINKBLUSH

I’M BACK!

Sorry about my absence, it was not intentional. I had a bit of laptop drama. Luckily the problem was easily taken care of. 

Anyways, I feel like SO much has gone on since my last post (which was one of my most read posts to date! THANK YOU SO MUCH!) Most notably, my shoot with PinkBlush! CHECK US OUT HERE! I still can’t believe that it actually happened. I guess it’s not that big of a deal, but for me, it was a little dream come true! Read more

EXPLORING SPACE TRAVEL AND THE SPACE SHUTTLE ENDEAVOR AT THE CALIFORNIA SCIENCE CENTER

 

Currently sitting here downing a cup of coffee just trying to stay awake because this morning we were up bright and early. When I say “bright and early” I am talking like 6:30 am, which for this momma, may as well have been 4 am. I am not an early riser so for me to get up at that time it has to be for something special. Which was exactly the case because today we went to check out the Space Shuttle Endeavour at the California Science Center! Read more

HONEST MOMMY MOMENT

 

We are back from our little vacation in Palm Desert and we had the absolute best time! If you follow me on Instagram you already know that we did nothing but hang out by the pool, play, and watch movies. But seriously, if you are looking for a fun getaway for yourself and the kids check out Shadow Ridge Marriot- The Enclaves. They not only have an amazing facility with tons of pools and even a waterslide, but they have a whole staff dedicated to family activities. From poolside bingo, scavenger hunts, tie-dye shirt making, lawn games, and even a ‘dive-in movie’ every night by the pool, the number of activities are seriously endless! Plus when you add in the mini movie theater, arcade and video games all located on site there is not much more you could want or ask for. Read more

REDONDO BEACH HISTORIC LIBRARY

 

I feel like we are already in the dog-days of summer and our break just started! It’s already July and I don’t even have a decent tan yet! Haha. Anyways, the other day I took the girl to a local park that sits just above the beach. It was such a beautiful day; Sunny, warm, cloudless sky, and just a slight ocean breeze. It couldn’t have been more perfect. Read more

MOMMY MUST HAVES: BEACH ESSENTIALS

MOMMY MUST HAVES-

So last time on my “Mommy Must Haves” series I shared my top swimsuits for this upcoming summer (if you missed it you can find it here). Well, this time I am going to continue our summer accessories discussion by covering beach essentials. If you live in Southern California then you know that summer and beach days go together like lemons and lemonade. You really can’t have one without the other. But I understand that as a mother with two little ones, having a beach day isn’t as easy as throwing on your bikini and grabbing your towel. Nowadays this fun little activity involves some planning and even packing. So with summer quickly approaching, I figured why not share my top beach essentials and make your planning that much less of a headache. So whether your plans involve hitting the beach or just taking a trip to the nearest lake or river, these are some products you are not going to want to leave home without.

Let’s get started!

A DAY AT THE SOUTHCOAST BOTANICAL GARDENS

Now that the kiddies are officially on Winter break here in LA, I’ve had to plan a few extra special outing just to keep my little ones from going stir crazy. Although the weather has been pretty cold here, to LA standards, the days have been relatively clear and sunny. So I have been trying to incorporate as much of the outdoors as possible.  While going to our favorite park is always fun, sometimes we need a little change of atmosphere. Luckily for us, there is a gem of a botanical garden located not too far from our house that we love to visit.

So when it came to choosing the location for this year’s family photos it really was a no-brainer! Why not capture these precious moments at one of my favorite local museums; I mean, what could really be better?? Read more
