I have a thing for orange clothing. There are not many bright colors I think go well with my skin tone but orange is one of my favorites. It makes most skin tones pop! It being summer, it’s the best time to bring out your favorite orange top or dress and get ready for a fun night out! Here are some of my favorite orange pieces at the moment, hope you find something you like.

Tengo un lugar especial en mi closet para la ropa de color naranja. No hay muchos colores brillantes que siento vayan bien con mi tono de piel pero el naranja definitivamente es mi favorito. Hace resaltar a casi todo tono de piel! Y bueno, como es el verano, es el mejor tiempo para sacar tu favorita blusa naranja o tal vez vestido y salir con unas amigas o tu pareja para disfrutar la temporada. Aqui les dejo unas piezas que me estan gustando, espero encuentren algo que les guste.

Mommy Monday – Baby Food

May 9, 2016
Baby Food Cooking

Two weeks ago my baby got the ok on baby food! I was really excited about this because EVERY time my baby sees me eat she starts reaching for my food and puts her hands in her mouth so that to me was a sign that she was ready. We started off with rice cereal mixed with formula, she didn’t seem to care much about it. She would eat it but she just wasn’t all that excited about it. After a couple days on the rice cereal we started to make her own puree. We decided that I would make her food because 1. its healthier (though I probably will still buy her some food from the store) 2. I have the time and 3. we have A LOT of veggies at home that tend to go bad quickly.

We ended up getting the Beaba Babycook Pro and let me tell you I love it! I was considering just using a steam pot and a blender but with the Beaba it is so much quicker and easier to prep babies food. It is so easy to clean and so easy to make the puree in. We’ve only done carrots for now. My doctor recommended staying on one veggie a week just to see how she reacts to it. She also recommended that we start with veggies before we move on to fruits.

To store the food I use these baby food containers by NUK, they are silicone so it’s easy to take out the baby food one at a time. To thaw it I usually just take it out and leave it in the fridge or sometime I heat it up for 20-30 seconds in the microwave, making sure to stir for a minute or so to prevent hotspots.

So far baby girl seems to like this new adventure. I love seeing her react to a new flavor and texture. If you guys have any recommendations for baby food let me know!

Hace dos semanas le dieron el si a mi bebe para que ya empiece a comer comida! Y ya era tiempo porque ella ya estaba lista, me lo demostraba cada que se metía las manitas a la boca cuando nos miraba comer. Comenzamos con el cereal de arroz para bebes y la verdad como que no le importaba mucho. Si se lo comía pero no parecía  que fuera algo muy especial para ella. Despues de unos días le dimos pure de zanahoria y le gusto mucho! Decidimos que yo le iba a hacer su comida porque tengo el tiempo para hacerlo y porque es mas saludable (aunque de vez en cuando le voy a comprar los que nos dan en la tienda). 

Yo tengo el Beaba Babycook Pro que me facilita preparar la comida para mi bebe, me permite cocinarlo a vapor y ahi mismo lo puedo licuar. Es mas fácil para hacer la comida y mas fácil de limpiar. Por ahorita nomas estamos haciendo pure de zanahoria para mirar como reacciona y de ahi vamos a usar una verdura por semana para ver que le gusta y que no. De ahi continuaremos con frutas, nuestra doctora nos recomendó empezar con verduras y dejar las frutas para después porque es mas seguro que les guste mas la fruta que las verduras.

Para guardar el pure uso estos trastes de NUK para congelar. Son de silicon y es mas facil para sacar un solo cuadrito a la vez. Para descongelar la comida nomas dejo el cuadrito en el refrigerador para que se vaya descongelando y si lo necesito pronto entonces lo meto al microondas por 20-30 segundos asegurándome de mezclarlo para evitar partes calientes. 

Hasta ahorita a mi bebe le¬†fascina esta nueva etapa. Me encanta mirar su¬†reacci√≥n a comidas nuevas y texturas nuevas. Si me quieren recomendar algunas otras cosas para bebe por favor¬†d√≠ganme ūüôā

#MommyMonday 1 & 2 Month Favorites

April 4, 2016
1&2-Month-Baby

When I was pregnant I did my research on what I needed once baby got here. Well let’s just say I bought way too much! What can I say? I’m a first time mom. Charlize is 2 months now and here are some things that have been so helpful during these two first months.
Cuando estaba embarazada investigue mucho sobre los productos que necesitaba antes de que llegara mi bebe. Dejen les digo que compre de mas! Soy mama primeriza! Charlize ya tiene 2 meses y aqu√≠ les quiero dejar unas cositas que nos han ayudado much√≠simo en estos dos primeros meses.

1&2-Month-Baby

1. THE NOSE FRIDA – Basically this little gadget is the best nose sucker out there! When I first saw it online I immediately said I will use this because EVERYONE says it’s the best. I gifted it to a cousin that was also pregnant at the time and she told me loved it! However, when Charlize was born I was kinda nervous about using it. A couple weeks after she was born she was having a hard time sleeping due to a stuffy nose. I immediately got the Nose Frida out as well as some saline drops and got to sucking. Let me just say it was so easy compared to that blue ball nose sucker they give you at the hospital. No buggers will ever get even a little bit close to the little filter thingy. Seriously has made stuffy noses a breeze! I will say she hates the process of getting her nose cleaned but LOVES the end result.
Este aparato es lo MEJOR para sacar los moquitos a los bebes! Cuando primero lo vi en internet dije que esto lo tenia que tener inmediatamente porque dec√≠an que era lo mejor para un bebe. De hecho, se lo regale a una prima que estaba embarazada al mismo que tiempo que yo. En cuanto lo uso en su bebe me dijo que era lo mejor. Bueno en cuanto naci√≥ Charlize me puse un poco nervioso para usarlo en ella, que tal si los mocos se iban hasta arriba?! Unas semanas despu√©s de nacer, Charlize empez√≥ a batallar para dormir porque batallaba respirar por la nariz; no la pens√© dos veces! Agarre mi Nose Frida y unas gotas de saline y a sacar los mocos. Fue lo mas f√°cil y lo mas r√°pido para este problema. Es mucho mejor que las cosas azules que nos dan en el hospital! A ella no le gusta el proceso de sacarle los mocos pero bien que le gusta el resultado final.

2. AVEENO BABY SHAMPOO/BODY WASH and LOTION – I love the original kind because it’s very light on her skin. I tried to use the night time calming one and it irritated her skin pretty bad. We tried other shampoos and lotions and this has been working great for her.
A nosotros nos gusta la version original porque es ligera en su piel. Tratamos de usar la version de noche que tiene una aroma un poco mas fuerte pero ese hizo que su piel se irritara much√≠simo. Hemos intentado usar otros shampoos y cremas pero este es el que nos ha funcionado.

3. LITTLE UNICORN SWADDLES – These are so cute and perfect for swaddling. We also use the Aden & Anais swaddles but I notice they get a little funny when I wash them, they sort of lose their shape and some threads got a little lose. These swaddles hold their shape after washing them and my baby loves sleeping in these.
Estas cobijitas son tan bellas y son perfectas para envolver a mi bebe. Tambi√©n hemos usado las de Aden & Anais pero eh notado que cambian despu√©s de lavarlas, y tambi√©n se sueltan algunos listones. Estas cobijitas mantienen su forma despu√©s de lavarlas y a mi bebe le gusta dormir en ellas. 

4. ROCK N PLAY – I received this as a gift and it has been the greatest thing ever. Baby only sleeps there instead of her crib. She will stay in her crib for about 30 minutes and then wake up. On the rock n play she has slept for up to 5 hours so far. We got the one that rocks itself and it’s the best.
Este lo recibimos como regalo y ha sido de lo mejor para mi esposo y para mi, obviamente tambi√©n para la bebe jiji. Charlize ahi puede dormir por horas en la noche, mientras que en su cuna nomas dura 30 minutos. Nosotros tenemos el que se mese solo y ha sido lo mejor.

5. MAM PACIFIERS – These pacifiers have helped baby fall asleep when she’s having trouble falling asleep. These are the only ones we’ve tried and she loves them. They’re also very cute so I think we’re sticking to these for a while.
Estos chupones ayudan para que Charlize se duerma o para calmarse o relajarse. Estos son los √ļnicos que hemos usado con ella y a ella le gustan estos as√≠ que creo que seguiremos con estos por el tiempo necesario.

6. DR. BROWN BOTTLES – As much as I hate washing these, my daughter loves them. I have tried Tommee Tippee and those work good with her but the nipple gets sucked in sometimes so that gets annoying when baby is falling asleep. The Dr. Brown bottles have extra pieces which suck because it’s just something extra getting in between a hungry baby and the bottle. We sometimes use the Avent bottles which I love but she definitely prefers Dr. Brown. I gave in and bought her 3 new big Dr. Brown bottles in this pink color.
Por mas que detesto lavar estos biberones, a mi hija le gustan estos. Hemos usado Tommee Tippee y lo √ļnico que no nos gusta es que el pezon se mete al biber√≥n, es un poco enfadoso cuando la bebe esta tratando de dormir. Tambi√©n usamos los de Avent y nos gusta pero a ella le gusta mas los de Dr. Brown. A mi lo √ļnico que no me gusta es que tienen piezas de mas y es fastidioso cuando necesitas el biber√≥n listo r√°pido. Como a ella le encantan estas, decid√≠ comprarle 3 mas, la version grande, y en este color rosa.

7. WHITE NOISE – Baby has been a pretty good sleeper during the night time but when it comes to daytime naps, she waked up with a lot of noises. So to help cover up all those noises and to help soothe her, we turn on some white noise while she naps. We like this one from YouTube. Or we just turn on the vacuum cleaner and that will soothe as well!
Charlize duerme mas o menos bien por las noches pero en el d√≠a en veces batalla con la siesta. Durante el d√≠a hay muchos sonidos que causan que se despierte, cuando eso sucede me gusta prenderle este video de YouTube en el iPad, es ruido blanco que ayuda “cubrir” los sonidos de afuera. O tambi√©n funciona prender la aspiradora ūüėČ

8. SUMMER INFANT BABY MONITOR – We use this one that we got from Target. I never thought I would be using a baby monitor but I hated the fact that I could never really relax while baby was asleep because I would always feel like I needed to check in on her. Showers were horrible because I couldn’t enjoy them. I caved and got this one and it is so good! It helps me enjoy my breakfast, enjoy my showers, and it let’s me clean the house in peace.
Nosotros usamos este de Target. No pensaba que iba a necesitar un monitor para bebes pero mi situaci√≥n era grabe jaja. No podia ni ba√Īarme agusto porque sent√≠a que mi hija estaba gritando/llorando! No podia relajarme mientras ella dorm√≠a. En cuanto compramos este monitor todo cambio. Me ba√Īaba con paz, desayunaba tranquilamente, y limpiaba sin miedo!

9. SOLLY BABY WRAP – This is a very recent favorite. She didn’t like it too much in her first month, but I decided to try it again last week and she loved it! I obviously loved it too because it let me soothe my baby, it let me eat breakfast while she relaxed, and I got some organizing done all while baby relaxed in the wrap. These particular wraps have really nice, modern colors and the material is very comfy for baby.
Este es un favorito reciente. No le gustaba mucho estar en esto durante su primer mes, pero decid√≠ usarlo de nuevo la semana pasada y le encanto! A mi obviamente tambi√©n me gusto porque me dejaba hacer un poco mas mientras tenia a Charlize conmigo. Podia organizar el cuarto, lavar trates, cocinar, y hasta peinarme mientras ella dorm√≠a cerca de mi.

Pregnant: 30 Weeks

October 28, 2015
Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

Today marks 30 weeks with this little lady in my belly! Ah it is so crazy to think that I’m so close to seeing her little face! Yesterday we had an ultrasound and thank God everything is looking great. It is now time to pre-register at the hospital and to do the hospital tour! Most of my friends and family have given birth at this same hospital and I really like the hospital! It has very spacious rooms which is really important for us because small rooms make me really anxious!

So for the last week I finally found a way to sleep somewhat comfortably, I don’t think I’ll need that preggo pillow now. I found some gel-like pillows at Costco and they are sooooo comfy and amazing! I place one under my head and the other goes under my belly sorta and it helps me sooooo much! Thank God it seems like my cravings are under control! About two weeks ago I forgot to mention that I was having crazy cravings for sweet stuff, specifically cookies and cake, I actually think about binging on them again and thank goodness the desire is gone.

We finally started to get our room ready for baby. Our crib is finally built, we just need the mattress, which we’re getting this week, and also we need a dresser, which we’re also getting this week hopefully. After that, it’s just about filling our house with baby!

I think that’s it for now, ’til next week ūüôā

Todas parecen pensar que cuando llega el oto√Īo es tiempo de solamente usar labiales super oscuros, rojos, y de¬†tono vino. Aunque a mi¬†tambi√©n me encanta usar un labial oscuro de vez en cuando, les quiero decir que¬†tambi√©n puedes usar otros tonos este oto√Īo!

1 & 2 – There’s really no time of the year where you can go wrong with a nude lip! And thought these might be a bit pricier than a drugstore find, these are sooooo pretty with a nice smokey eye and the perfect holiday look!

3, 4, & 5 – A subtle lip is perfect for an everyday look. Sometimes we just want to just to put on mascara and add a pop of color for the day and these are perfect just for that.

6, 7, & 8 – Like I said, I love a bold lip just as much as the next girl. You don’t always have to go for a burgundy, red lip (though those are my favorite)! You can also try a bold purple or a wine colored lip for your next holiday party! You can pair these with a subtle eye look and if your feeling a bit more bold, go ahead and pair it with a nice smokey eye, it looks great as well!
