I racked my brain for months trying to think of the perfect theme – I love a good play on words lol. I saw “First Trip Around the Sun” a few months back and absolutely fell in love with it but I really wanted to make it my own. After leafing through all the different astronaut / rocketship variations.. I landed at a soft girly celestial vision. I didn’t know how to explain what I wanted (cotton candy sailor moon celestial vibes lmao) but somehow these ladies completely read my mind. This has to be my favorite event we’ve done together yet. Pure magic!!
And just like that… hair she goes! My firstborn is four!
Iya’s at the age now where her parties are no longer for the grownups! After literally growing from toddler to child and becoming a big sister all while locked up in the pandemic — I wanted her party to totally center on her & her buddies! We haven’t had many opportunities to socialize these past 18 months so the social anxiety we’re feeling as adults, I know is even harder on the kids. Iya’s been struggling hard these past several months so we kept it small as she’s easing back into the world. Her comfort and enjoyment were absolutely paramount.
Iya & her 6 besties (+ baby siblings all born during the pandemic!) enjoyed the day having their hair braided & painting their own masterpieces. Get ready for all the beautiful details below!

Checking in as a mama of 2 (whaaaaat?!) 🙂 I am nearly 5 weeks post partum and am on cloud 9! Ilyana was born April 29th, and although my birth experience was quite intense (I owe you that story still!), it’s been just lovely ever since — my recovery as…

Now that I’ve crossed the halfway mark of my pregnancy with baby #2, I’ve started to feel a little behind on getting ready! While I’ve saved most of Iya’s essentials and big-ticket baby items for future siblings, there are still some things I need to buy and I have yet to buy anything! Eeeek!
I spent a lot of my Christmas break putting together my Amazon Baby Registry! This is in no way sponsored by Amazon, I just chose them since its more of a shopping list for myself (doubt I’ll have a baby shower!) and I’ll most definitely be taking advantage of my 15% completion discount at the end! When I was pregnant with Iya, I registered through Babylist btw!
Registry Thought Starters:
Some serious magic happens whenever @SoCalEventPlanners & @HelloKismet get together! This was the third party we planned together and I walked out just as blown away as I did 3 years ago when they did my baby shower. They truly have the Midas touch and you’d think I wouldn’t be so surprised still! Thank you ladies for creating the most magical day for my big girl!
