Bugaboo Bee5 Tone Limited-Edition

So, as you all know, it was a huge struggle for me to decide which double stroller to buy once Dom was born. At the end of the day I decided to not get one, as I didn’t think it was going to be a very practical everyday option for me. I mean managing a toddler, a newborn and a stroller that is as wide as most aisles and longer than myself just sounded a little insane. Plus, V. just wants to walk all the time “like a big girl,” and then like any other kid, wants to get right back on the stroller as quick as she wanted out. The thought of that and a double stroller just stressed me out. Just thinking about makes me tired. So yeah, no double for this mama and I am so happy I didn’t get one.

Recently, Bugaboo sent me the limited-edition Bugaboo Bee5 Tone, a super lightweight stroller that is extremely easy to maneuver and fold. I’m in love with it and Dom is a true little Prince cruising around in it. He loves to see people, places and is always watching e v e r y t h i n g – so cute! This particular Bee5 is the limited edition “Tone,” which comes in the super pretty and classic colors of taupe and lavender blue. It’s no joke, so pretty!Because it’s a limited edition,you won’t see many of these cruising around. Once it’s gone it’s gone! Plus, the color combo makes it super versatile for boys and girls.

One of the most fun and exciting features of this stroller has V. on cloud nine! It has the ability to add a Comfort Wheeled Board! I swear, she wants to ride on the wheeled board ALL THE TIME, she is so in love with it! When Bugaboo released the Bee5 they updated the stroller to include integrated attachment points for accessories, removing the need for adapters.  The Comfort Wheeled Board is super easy to attach and remove from the stroller, literally just a click (no attachments necessary). One of my favorite features of the stroller is how it folds. I’ve literally struggled big time folding a stroller and placing it in my trunk when V was a baby, so when Dom was born I was even more worried about how I would manage a baby, a toddler and the complicated process of folding a stroller – I mean, this stuff can be brutal sometimes! Well, the Bugaboo Bee5 is super simple to fold and it gets very compact. It takes me seconds to fold the stroller and to put in the trunk. Just heaven!

I’m so happy to have a stroller that fits my little growing family so perfectly!

Too Faced Just Peachy Eyeshadow Palette

If you looked through my makeup I can guarantee you the only eyeshadow colors you would see are neutral tones. You really will never see me wearing blues or green or any super vibrant color eyeshadow, it’s just not really me. So when I came across the new ‘Just Peachy Matte Eye Shadow Palette‘ by Too Faced I was head over heels. I love the beautiful neutral and peachy colors, it’s just perfect for any Fall wardrobe. You can find this perfect palette exclusively at any Sephora or Sephora inside JCPenney store.

Too Faced Peaches and Cream

For a night out my favorite combo so far was a super simple, yet sultry look you can create in just 5 minutes:

  • Apply Too Faced Shadow Insurance all over your eyelids.
  • Pick up your ‘Just Peachy Matte Eye Shadow Palette apply the shadow as follows:
    • First, apply ‘Peach Meringue’ all over your lids and brows.
    • Second, sweep ‘Peach Tea’ into crease and blend upwards.
    • Third, smoke ‘Fresh-Picked’ into outer crease and smudge it onto your lower lash line.
  • Finish off the look with the iconic ‘Better Than Sex Mascara‘. I love to apply mascara inside out and then just stroke the brush lightly onto my outer lashes and my bottom lashes.

I love how effortless, yet sexy this combo turned out! #SoWorthIt!

Best Vitamins for your Hair, Skin & Nails

I get a lot of questions from you guys and friends asking me if I take vitamins for my hair, skin and nails. The answer is yes I do…and a lot of them! Right after my pregnancy with Dom I started to lose a lot of hair and my skin was insanely bad. My hormones were going crazy and my body just a little out of control. I’ve always been really OCD with my hair and my skin so when they started to go crazy…well, so did I. So I did a lot of research and found a great combination of vitamins to strengthen my hair and nails and to brighten, clear my skin and help with wrinkles (after all I am 32 now!).

So here is my slightly crazy daily vitamin combo

Vitamin Code Multi Vitamin

A multivitamin is a must for any vitamin routine. I love Vitamin Code because it is in raw form and has tons of probiotic! A perfect and essential vitamin to add to your daily intake.

 

AminoSculpt Anti-Aging Type 1 Collagen Peptides (16,000mg)

I start off every morning (before my coffee and on an empty stomach), with two spoon full of this AminoSculpt Anti- Aging Type 1 Collagen.  Collagen is an essential part of a good vitamin routine for your skin. It boost your body’s natural collagen production and replenish the collagen you lose during the aging process.

 

Oceanic Silica from Red Algae

Silica is an essential vitamin to help with weak and brittle nails as well as helping build your collagen production and strengthen your hair.

 

Resveratrol 250mg

Resveratrol is an antioxidant found in grape skins that has been scientifically proven to promote heart health and longevity. On top of that it a key vitamin to help with anti-aging and cellular heath.

Biotin made with Coconut Oil

Biotin is the one vitamin I’m sure almost everyone reading this article is super familiar with. Yes, it’s still super necessary and helps promote healthy looking skin, hair and nails! I love this one that is made with coconut oil, which if you know anything about coconut oil it is also perfect for your hair, nails and skin!!

 

Acai Berry (1,000mg)

Acai Berry might be known to some. To those who don’t know about Acai, it is a super antioxidant and if you want healthy looking skin you need antioxidants!

 

Himalayan SeaBuckthorn Oil Blend

Sea Buckthorn Oil is the best vegetarian source of omega 7. The berry’s unique composition of essential fatty acids and vitamins offers many therapeutic in addition to beautiful skin, hair and nails.

 

Arctic Cod Liver Oil

Arctic Cod Liver Oils is one of the best sources of omega 3 fatty acids! It is best known to help clear acne and create flawless looking skin. It is a key ingredient if you suffer from hair loss of dullness since it’s an essential oil in helping promote hair growth.

Denim Military Jacket and Striped Pants

Happy Tuesday everyone!! Wanted to share with you a little look I put together in partnership with Banana Republic.  Their fall collection is so good right now, so many amazing pieces from coats, jackets, scarfs and belts. I’m obsessed and got so many goodies that I will be sharing with you guys along the next season.

For this look I paired their iconic Sloan pants in vertical stripes with this super fun denim military jacket. I love pants with vertical stripes, they always make your legs look longer and a little leaner too, so you can’t go wrong with that! The denim jacket is just an iconic piece I’ll be wearing all Fall. I mean during the Fall season whenever I’m in doubt I throw a denim or leather jacket over my look and 90% of the time it makes it look more complete. So needless to say, a fun denim jacket like this one is just a little bonus.

This Look

Pants are the Sloan- Fit from Banana Republic

Jacket is the Denim Band Jacket from Banana Republic

Shoes are these super comfy slides, I also love these, and these

Plain white tee like this one, or this one.
