I’m back!!! Let me start by apologizing.. I recently started working on Music again, and it’s almost like I took on a whole other job. I love music and I’m so passionate about it, so I wanted to find a way to make it a part of my life again in a big way. It’s been taking a lot of my time and creative energy, but I do not plan to stop making videos, blogs, or anything that I have been doing thus far. For me, it’s just gonna be about balancing it all while still being the wife and mother I desire to be for my family. I do believe as a mom it’s important to still maintain my self identity and pursue things I like and that I’m passionate about; things that make me happy. My blog, my videos, my music. They all make me so happy!
Thanks for your patience and understanding.
Today I thought I would do a really fun and very girly blog. These are things I’ve been loving lately. This post is gonna focus on some
“me” items that I’ve had on my wish list for a while. I find so many cool things as a mom for my son, and for the house, but these are items for moms enjoyment only haha . Some are fun gifts I’ve received over the past few months, and maybe a present or two I bought as little rewards for myself. haha
These beautiful glass bottles aren’t cheap, but I have received two as a gift and let me just say that they are so much fun! I use them almost everyday. Inspired by “all things glowing and glam, and the belief that objects in your life should be love,” Bkr releases seasonal collections of glass water bottles with soft silicone sleeves that are high-end, limited edition, and chemical-free. It adds a nice little touch to the imperative eight glasses of water a day.
Something about this new Clarisonic made me very intrigued. I worked for Clarisonic for many years, and literally had boxes and boxes of them in my second closet back at the apartment. I used to give them away to my friends (with the permission of the company of course). I haven’t worked for Clarisonic in quite some time, so eventually my collection finally dissipated.
I recently worked with Ulta and they gave me a gift card to get a few of my favorite items from the store to share in a video. I knew this was one of the items I definitely wanted. I always loved the new designs Clarisonic came out with, but I never saw this coming! It’s an egg shaped and very compact Clarisonic that I personally feel is the best they have done so far. It came with the radiance brush head and the radiance cleanser which are both AMAZING!!!!! The cleanser alone is soooooo good, but this brush head has nice long bristles and is super soft on the skin. I take this to the gym, use it in the shower, and next to my bathroom sink. It’s also perfect for travel because it’s compact. I would say I don’t use my Clarisonic everyday but probably 3 times a week.
Louis Vuitton Key Chain
I recently went through a huge closet purge. I donated a ton of my clothes and purses, and sold items on Posh Mark as well. I kept only a few handbags. I kept only the ones I felt would be staples in my wardrobe for years to come. On most days, I honestly don’t carry a purse. If Oliver is with me I bring his diaper bag, but for quick errands by myself I wanted to keep it to just a wallet and keys. I saw a woman at my gym with an LV key chain, and I KNEW that was what I wanted for my next ‘holiday gift’. I made a mention to Byron that it was something I felt I would get good use out of. He got it for me for Valentines day. I hold all of my club cards, credit cards, and petty cash in this. It attaches to my keys, so it’s honestly perfect. It’s timeless and great quality, and for me it’s a perfect no purse purse!
These were sent to me as a gift recently, and I was so excited. I’ve always wanted a pair of Gold Ray Bans. They honestly look good with anything.. You can wear them in full glam, or look glam in sweats and uggs hahah + honestly Aviators look great on just about everyone!
Pink Back Pack
So, I mentioned that I’ve been working on music more. I’ve been writing a lot, both working on my own music, and music for other artists also. I go to the studio every weekend to write with my team. Byron comes with me, and we all have so much fun!
Oliver stays with my parents on the weekends, and my brothers kids do also. I feel really good knowing I’m being productive + I know he’s in excellent hands and having a great time. I felt like a 12 year old when I got this, but I really wanted to get a backpack for the studio. I bring everything with me (as I am there for 6+hrs each time.) I bring my computer and headphones, my writing journal, magazine, planner, and I even pack a little toiletries bag with all the necessities. haha
I found this backpack for like $12 on eBay, and it was exactly what I imagined I wanted. Something light pink and girly but could hold all my studio must haves. haha
Speaking of computer and headphones, my computer and headphones are two of the most important work items that I own. My computer is my creative capsule. All of my music, videos, and inspiration is in that!! I recently got a marble skin for my computer, and I adore it. Byron and I have the same type of computer, so now we don’t get confused who’s is who’s + it’s super pretty! yay
My last pair of beats took a little fall and broke =(
I needed a new pair for work, so I got the titanium color studio beats. I use these exclusively with my computer and not in my personal music studio, but they are excellent for editing music or videos on your computer. These ones are wireless as well.
