Iya has slept in her Dockatot Deluxe+ since we brought her home from the hospital! We’ve tried having her go without it quite a few times but she always feels most secure & sleeps best in it. It also kept her in place and on her back! The couple times we tried weening her off it, I’d find her all twisted up in her bedside crib bumping her head and just miserable. My big girl is growing out of the Deluxe+ now so the lovely folks at Dockatot have gifted her a beautiful new Grand! Originally, I thought this would be a great time to transition her from our room (in her babybay bedside bassinet) to her big girl crib with her new Grand in there to give her a familiar feel but I will not be going this route. There is too much space around the Grand in her crib (whereas her Deluxe+ fits perfectly in her bedside bassinet) but it’s made an incredible lounger! US regulations do not advise placing it in baby’s crib or bassinet anyways; but as always please please do your research & talk to your pediatrician about safe sleep.
Iya absolutely loves to hang out and play in her Grand, and looks absolutely darling in it! Once she fills it out a bit more I just know it’ll give her that cozy feeling her current Deluxe+ does and I’d love for her to be able to nap in it on the go — while we lounge outside or in the living room! The Grand is for ages 9 to 36 months so I have a feeling this will really come in handy during her toddler years when she’ll be transitioning to her big girl bed and needs that snuggly feeling. Babygirl, you’re growing up way too fast & its breaking my heart but you’re an even bigger joy with every passing day!
I definitely gravitate towards neutrals when it comes to my personal style: black, camel & all shades of tan are my jam. When it comes to my feet, there is nothing I love more than a nude sandal! They are so sexy, go with everything, and elongate the legs which is a huge bonus for petite girls like myself. Unfortunately, “nude” doesn’t mean the same thing across the board and being a woman of color, it was always a daunting task shopping for nude sandals or lipstick: two things that sit flush against the skin. My brown skin.
Just wanted to share some outfit deets before heading out for a little Sunday funday with the family! I spent the earlier part of the weekend at Disneyland with Sunglass Hut celebrating the launch of the new #DisneyxSunglasshut Raybans. One thing i especially love about Disney parks is looking at everyone’s cute outfits, especially all the little ones *heart eyes*. My polkadot dress is so fun and such perfect Minnie-style — I got so many compliements on it all day! Iya’s onesie is one my favorite pieces on her, what a little hype beast baby! It’s currently on SALE!
A new tutorial went up on my channel yesterday and I’m so in love with it! Its pretty enough to be a bridal look, glam enough for a girls night out, & its extra but safe. Whichever way I take my makeup the most important step is always my base! My skin is very dry so the moment I get dehydrated or fall behind on skincare it always shows right on my face in the worst way.
I absolutely love Neutrogena’s Hydro-Boost product range! I was first introduced to it last year (& got to meet Kerry Washington at their event ahh!), and I’ve been a fan ever since. Even my Husband is obsessed with their Hydro Boost Water Gel. One new product I used in this video is their Hydrating Face Mask… I think I’m a fan for life *heart eyes*. It really left my skin looking and feeling divine.
I’ll be with Neutrogena at Rite Aid in Beverly Hills on the 31st from 12-4pm and I’d love for y’all to join us! We’ll have a couple MUAs on hand to demo some beautiful products and I can’t wait to squeeze you guys!
OK this is my favorite dress ever and I’m sad that its a trendy piece and not something that can work as a staple classic lol I want to wear it ALL THE TIME! The whimsical mesh layering is giving me all the J’Dior vibes and its just so girly! The frills, layers, stars, I’m completely smitten. Will y’all judge me if i wear it over and over on the gram? lol!
Keeping things girly, I dressed up my mesh with pops of pink! My new Gucci Marmont Mini (thanks Hubs!), comfy Rockstuds, & Iya’s chic new blanket. Can you tell I’m obsessed with pom poms & pink like a true girl-mom? My dress was already low-stock on Asos & ended up completely selling out soon after I shared on Instagram yesterday :/ but they do carry a mini version that is in stock and regular sizing (the maxi is a petite exclusive)!
I have an Asos addiction lately because I’m totally loving on their petite section. I’ve always had trouble dressing my body and one of the biggest reasons is my shrimp status. Finally hemlines that are extremely flattering on my 5’3″ self!
