Lollipop, Lollipop

drpops1drpops3drpops6drpops2

For all the mamas who love to give their kids treats… Dr. Pops All Natural and Allergy-Free Lollipops are both kid and mama approved! You can obviously see in the pictures that Scarlett and Landon are fans! They tried the Honey and Eucalyptus flavor and of course, I tried it too. I loved it because there’s definitely no sugar added and it’s naturally sweetened with honey. The fact that the kids liked it was a win for this mama because that means no sugar high!

On top of having no sugar, there are no artificial colors and flavors, and no preservatives. They are allergy-free as well so they don’t contain peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, sesame seeds, fish & shellfish, gluten, soy, wheat, alcohol & dairy. Each lollipop also gives your child their daily supplement of Vitamin C.

It was so cute to see my children truly enjoy these healthy lollipops! Scarlett, who has tried the sugary lollipops before, just gobbled this up. I was really curious to see if she would like them because it’s definitely far from a Tootsie Pop… which is a good thing for little ones.

Check them out and see for yourself! Dr. Pops are sold on Amazon. Check them out on Instagram and Facebook too for more info!

LifeSeasons Supplements

lfieseasonsblogIf there’s something that I’ve realized the importance of, as I’m getting older, it’s supplements. For me, as a mom of almost 3 little kids plus working full-time… I constantly need more energy to get through my day, vitamins to help me look refreshed (keyword: look), and something natural to help me finally relax at night after going 100mph.

I got to try natural supplements specifically for the things I mentioned by LifeSeasons. I’ve been using them for a couple weeks now (after I got approval from my OB of course) and I’ve definitely seen and felt a difference!



                                     Energy

Ok, if you’ve followed my blog or Instagram for awhile, you should know by now that I am OBSESSED with coffee. I love the feeling I get after and obviously the taste BUT I hate the crash. My husband and I have been taking this after eating breakfast and it’s amazing that I do get the same feeling I get from coffee but it lasts all day long without the crash. My husband is not much of a coffee drinker so he is just loving these! The two main key ingredients are coffee bean extract and green tea. For more information on the Energy supplements… click here!

Beau-T

Ladies, you need to get on this! I’ve just been taking these for a couple weeks and my hair, skin and nails have already been looking and feeling healthier. I mean, people could argue that it’s the pregnancy glow but I know my skin and it’s definitely looking smoother and feeling firmer. I even got my husband to take these because why wouldn’t guys want healthier hair, skin and nails too?! I’ve taken Biotin supplements before but I love that this one by LifeSeasons adds other key ingredients… Seriously, I’m obsessed. Click here for more info!

Rest-ZZZ

This one has been a lifesaver during my last week of work before going on Maternity Leave. By the end of the night, when the kids are finally asleep, my mind starts to go crazy thinking about what I should be doing and what needs to be done the next day. This has helped me relax and eventually doze off into a deep slumber. I was always hesitant to try “sleeping pills” but the fact that the ingredients that LifeSeasons use for the Rest-ZZZ are natural, it’s definitely worry-free. I haven’t used it ever since I’ve been on Maternity Leave but my husband has and he’s been sleeping more like a baby than usual! LOL. For more info, click here!

You guys have to check LifeSeasons out… they offer 28 supplements including the 3 that I’m using. You are bound to find one that you need for yourself! I’m going to need to get the Metabolism one for when I’m cleared to workout and lose all the baby weight 🙂 What’s also great is that if you subscribe, you get 15% off the supplements every time you order PLUS Free Shipping! Be sure to follow them on Facebook and Instagram too!

39 Weeks Bumpdate

39weeks139weeks239weeks5

Wowzers I’m officially 39 weeks and it’s exactly one week until my due date! Some days definitely felt like this pregnancy is taking forever but now that I’ve reached the end, it has totally flown by and was the fastest pregnancy out of the 3. It must be because I have two littles to chase after and keep me busy haha.

This past week was my first week of Maternity Leave and it’s been so nice to sleep in a bit, relax and spend quality time with my family. I was even able to sneak in some uninterrupted naps during the day, thanks to my husband!

As for pregnancy symptoms, I’m feeling as pregnant as can be that’s for sure! My feet will start to feel like they’re swelling if I stand any longer than 5 minutes, after I eat I seriously feel as if my stomach is about to explode, when I sit in certain angles I have shortness of breath, and I can feel the baby’s movement getting lower since he is most likely preparing himself for birth (which explains the pelvic pain). Oh and btw, I have been feeling a lot of Braxton Hicks contractions… a lot of stomach tightening but no pain yet.

39weeks4

Liam, my dear, we are ready for you!!! I hope you come no later than your due date or I’ll have to start the eviction process lol 🙂

P.S. I was so excited to share this non-maternity dress with you from Romwe but it’s sold out! Sorry!

What I’m Packing for Baby #3

bravado4

Last week I posted about what I packed in my hospital bag for myself (see post here) so I decided to share what I packed for Baby Liam! I still can’t believe he’ll be here in any day now and I’ll be a mama of 3 under 3 *cue circus music* lol! My children are my pride a joy so I am so excited to meet him even though I know days will get crazier at times.

So here’s what I’m bringing for my baby boy:

  • Swaddle blankets – the hospital does give you a couple but I mean, you’ll want to bring some with cute prints that best fit your style (love this and this)
  • Soft plush baby blanket – only the best and softest blanket for a newborn (love this and this)
  • Newborn Beanies – the hospital usually gives you the one with the pink and blue that work for girls and boys but I like to bring some specifically for the gender (love this and this)
  • Mittens – so necessary so the baby doesn’t scratch their face (love this and this)
  • Coming Home Outfit – I always bought a personalized onesie so I continued the tradition with Liam 🙂 I love Etsy! This time I got a onesie and matching set from a small shop called Cobalt and Coral
  • Newborn Socks – I want Liam to feel as warm and snuggly as possible (love this and this)
  • Car Seat Insert – Most car seats come with one already but it’s not as cushion-y as I would like for a newborn especially since they just spent 9 months in your belly (love this and this)

Am I missing anything?! Btw, the nursing bra I’m wearing in the photos are by Bravado… they are SO comfortable that I couldn’t wait to wear them already.

Happy Thursday! xo

My Current Fave Make-up Products

makeup4

If you didn’t already know from my Instagram, Scarlett got into my make-up last month and broke my favorite Kat Von D Shade + Light Palette that I used to contour for special events. I was SO bummed but instead of dwelling on it, I used it as an opportunity to try something just in case I’d fall in love with it too. I hit the jackpot with the first try!

I am loving the Highlite ‘N Con Tour by The Balm Cosmetics! I actually like it better than the Kat Von D because it goes on softer and you can work up to a fuller coverage look. I also love the shades of the highlights, they come with matte and shimmer highlights too!

makeup5makeup6

Other new products that I LOVE are It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream with SPF 50+… obsessed! I heard so many great things about it but I played it safe with the travel size just to make sure I really like it before getting the full size. My new go-to drug store mascara is the Voluminous Lash Paradise by L’Oreal, which is (in my opinion) better than the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara that it’s known to be a dupe for… go figure. If you didn’t already get the memo that I’m a fan of The Balm Cosmetics… I got their Balm Springs Long-Wearing Blush in my ipsy glam bag a couple months ago and have been using it since!

The other products are products that I’ve been using for years and just replaced (again) cause I ran out of them. I’ve tried other brands but always went back to these go-to’s… Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 (best lip balm EVER), It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Anti-Aging Concealer (best under eye concealer EVER, a little goes a long way), the Jelly Pong Pong Neopolitan Palette (got this in an ipsy glam bag too and love how pigmented the shadows) and my the Make Up Forever Duo Mat Powder Foundation (I haven’t found anything that lives up to this).

I linked each product here so you can easily shop them:

Have you tried any of these products? Is there a product that you are obsessed with that I need to try?! Let me know 🙂

Baby Boy’s Name + 38 Weeks Bumpdate

38weeks3

It’s my first official day of Maternity Leave today! This past weekend I experienced a lot of pelvic pain, shortness of breath and even some acid reflux (that I always had when I was pregnant with Landon)… to the point where I’m having trouble sleeping and staying asleep. It was definitely a reality check and reminder that this baby can literally come any day now and we have to be ready.

As some of you may know, especially if you follow me on Instagram, I got the amazing opportunity to take over the Inspire Pregnancy IG account last week! It was so awesome to connect with so many moms who actually reassured me that the transition from 2 kids to 3 kids isn’t as bad as the transition from 1 kid to 2 kids… whew! I loved all the encouragement I received from fellow mamas. What an amazing social media community 🙂

OH and I’ve gotten so many compliments on this Ivory Scalloped Lace Long Maternity Kimono… it’s from PinkBlush and I LOVE it! The quality is amazing and it’s perfect for a maternity photo session. I mean… look how beautiful?!

SO… we finally decided on a name. I’m so happy to share that Baby #3’s name is… *DRUM ROLL* please…

38weeks4

We are still deciding on a middle name but I’m glad that the hardest part is over lol. We are so excited to meet Baby LIAM soon! This custom onesie is from an Etsy Shop called Cobalt and Coral! It came in a set with pants and matching beanie that Liam will be wearing when we bring him home 🙂

Have a wonderful week everyone!
