Oh Teething!


To all my fellow mamas dealing with the ‘oh so fun’ teething stage… I feel you!!! I know that all babies are different because when Scarlett was teething, she wasn’t really affected but Landon… this poor baby gets extra fussy 😦 He’s been so needy and has been wanting Mama to carry him all the time and constantly sticking his fingers in his mouth and chewing them like a mad man.

I’m so thankful for the Nuby Nana Nubs Massager! I can only imagine what it would be feel on tender gums and it definitely helps soothe Landon’s teething pain and discomfort. As soon as I gave it to him, he spit out his pacifier (which he is obsessed with by the way) and chewed on that Nana Nubs like there was no tomorrow. He even carried it around while he crawled around the room. Plus, isn’t it just so cute?! Lol. I love that it’s a banana.


I wish I discovered sooner since Landon is already 10 months and this is safe to use for babies as young as 3 months. I guess I am set for baby #3! Haha. This is a great gift for moms-to-be too! I added it to my Mom-To-Be Shop or click here to shop this product directly! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by! xo

My Newest Obsession

MQ_lipsense1Screen Shot 2017-04-09 at 3.40.23 PM^ 1 layer Hazelunut + 1 layer Caramel Latte + Glossy Gloss

I’ve heard about LipSense awhile ago. I’ve seen videos of women wearing their products and rubbing their lips to prove that their lip color won’t smudge and will stay on. I mean it looked legit so I’ve been really wanting to try it out! I was so excited that Chante Fox from My Kiss & Tell sent me a lip color and gloss to try.

I started off Caramel Latte and Glossy Gloss and after one day of trying it, I had to get more so I got Hazelnut, Raisin and Matte Gloss. Honestly, I think I made a great selection because I’ve been mixing those 3 colors for a couple months and I’m still loving what I come up with 🙂 It’s so awesome that you are able to mix colors, especially when you’re just wanting a tint of a certain color.

I work full-time so it’s nice to put on my lip color in the morning before work and then… well, that’s it actually. Lol. I only have to put it on once a day. After that, you just apply the gloss throughout the day to keep your lips moisturized. I’m obsessed and I literally have been neglecting all my other lipsticks. You know I’m a fan if my MAC lipsticks are collecting dust, haha. I can’t wait to add to my LipSense collection!

If you’re dying to try it out, reach out to Chante Fox from My Kiss & Tell and let her know I sent you!

P.S. When you want to go for a matte look and use the Matte Gloss, you have to put on the Glossy Gloss FIRST for moisture then after a little while, put on the Matte. I didn’t know this at first and I put the Matte Gloss right on top of the lip color and let me just tell you… not cute.

Gimme All the Mules

MQ_distressed2Screen Shot 2017-03-29 at 6.00.08 PM


I am all about mules at the moment! I mean, they’re easy to put on and there are comfy ones and dressy ones out there… the options are endless! Plus I don’t have to worry about them getting too small for my growing preggo feet… I don’t mind my heel sticking out just a tad LOL. Any way, which one is your fave?!


Btw, I’m wearing #3 in my pictures! 🙂


New Season and a New Chapter

MQ_floralmaxi1MQ_floralmaxi2Dress: Romwe – Shoes: Just Fab – Necklace: Love Myssa – Sunglasses: Forever 21 (similar)

Happy Spring! If there’s one thing I love to wear while I’m pregnant, it’s a loose, flowy maxi dress! This one from Romwe totally screams “Spring” with the floral print and it’s only $20! When I got in the mail, I was pleasantly surprised with the quality. The fabric is smooth and pretty thick… so worth it! It does run a a little big so I suggest sizing down. I tend to buy non-maternity dresses that are the oversized style so that I can still wear them after I give birth 🙂Read More »

19 Weeks Bumpdate + Premama


It’s so hard to believe that in just a few days I’ll be hitting the half way mark in this pregnancy! I remember it felt like FOREVER when I was pregnant with Scarlett. Well, I did find out when I was about 4 weeks then we announced right after our first prenatal appointment at 8 weeks. Yes, I know the right way is to wait until 12 weeks but we were just so excited! We announced my 2nd pregnancy with Landon at 12 weeks and then, this pregnancy we announced when I was already 16 weeks… along with the gender 😛 Oh, not to mention, I found out I was already over 12 weeks at my first prenatal appt. OMG. Third child problems or what?! Lol.Read More »

Ipsy March 2017 Glam Bag Review

MQ_ipsymarch1What’s in the March 2017 “Tres Jolie” Glam Bag?

  1. INT Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Goddess Gold
  2. JeNu High Tech Beauty Marine Collagen Mineral Gel
  3. OFRA Cosmetics Peach Blush
  4. Chella Tweezers
  5. ModelCo Eye Define Retractable Crayon Liner in Black

MQ_ipsymarch5INT Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Goddess Gold

This shade is so pretty! This is the type of color that I typically wear when I want a more natural eyeshadow look. I like to wear it on my lids with a darker shade on my creases. It’s the perfect amount of shimmer! If you apply it with a wet brush, the color will show up a lot more.

MQ_ipsymarch3JeNu High Tech Beauty Marine Collagen Mineral Gel

 I love how this product comes with a dropper applicator. I tried this mineral gel on my face a couple times and you definitely get that instant gratification… my skin felt smoother and firmer. I’ll probably continue to use it a couple times a week since they claim to get rid of or prevent wrinkles! So far, so good.

MQ_ipsymarch6OFRA Cosmetics Peach Blush

I normally wear pink blushes because I think that they look better on my skin tone. I’ve received other products from this brand a few times and they’re great! The products are pigmented and last awhile. This shade is so pretty and I actually ended up liking it 0n me. It’s perfect for summer. I’ll be switching off between my normal blush and this one for sure.

MQ_ipsymarch2Chella Tweezers

I don’t know about you but I always misplace my tweezers! And of course when I need them the most, they are all no where to be found lol. I was so excited to get this one by Chella because 1) the handle is super comfortable to hold and 2) it’s red (meaning I should be able to easily spot it in my over stuffed make-up bag haha. Not to mention, these work well too!

MQ_ipsymarch4ModelCo Eye Define Retractable Crayon Liner in Black

Yay eyeliner! I know we get eyeliners in our glam bags often but I love it when we do because I mean, I can’t get enough of them! It’s actually perfect timing again because I lost the one I’ve been using… oops. This one by ModelCo glides on perfectly and is super pigmented which I love. It’s also the type of eyeliner that you don’t need to sharpen and just have to twist… my fave! I love that they sent the full size too which retails $14.

So this is the first bag in probably a year that I actually LOVE the bag it came in! It has such a chic look and I’d totally use it regularly. The blush color is perfection too! Back to the products though… which one is my fave?! Hm… I’d have to go with the tweezers then the eyeliner 🙂 Click here if you want to get Ipsy for only $10/month! The tweezers and eyeliner alone are $24! So worth it…
