Remember when I wrote about pregnancy hair changes and how your hair changes so incredibly much after you have the baby? Well, I’ve noticed that my hair has been flat and dull for the last year or so. As a result, I’ve been on the look-out for a shampoo and conditioner set to really boost up my hair and bring it back to life.
Daylight Savings Time kicked some serious butt this weekend within my energy levels, so when I woke up on Monday morning I did NOT feel like a full makeup routine. But I did want to touch up a little as I was feeling drained and had a few spots to cover up. I also had a deluxe sample of Benefit Cosmetics Dew The Hoola Soft Matte Liquid Bronzer that I got in my most recent Sephora order that I was dying to try out; and that’s how this 5 second no makeup look came to be!
BBDO India has won a Glass Lion for the ad I’m about to show you at the 2015’s Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. If you ask me, the award was more than well deserved. The message of this ad, for the Ariel brand (P&G India), is one that I think about all the time. The situation behind the powerful ad is not one that may be common in Indian culture, but in Latin American culture as well.
Your hair changes MAJORLY during and after your pregnancy. Even a year after my pregnancy, my hair is quite different than what it was prior to having a little bun in the oven. My biggest change came a few months after giving birth to my baby, thanks to my dear friends, hormones. (more…)
I was recently sent a Biore VoxBox by my friends at Influenster Canada. As always, I was very excited to receive one, but this one was extra special. I was particularly looking forward to this as I had experienced a few skin changes recently from starting to wear make-up on the daily again. Let’s just say my skin was not at its best!
Having a sick baby is really tough! The hardest part has to be that they cannot communicate what they’re feeling; making it hard for mama and the baby. Do they have a headache? Are they having a hard time breathing? What are they truly feeling? I try my best to communicate with Zoey and help her feel better any way I can. I did have to find out the hard way as to how to deal with a sick baby. As she is my first, this is all new to me. I’m sure there are many more mamas out there wondering what to do to help their babies too.
When I hear these 90’s songs, they bring me back. They bring me right back to the little girl that loved to sing and dance in the living room of my home back in Peru, or the sassy girl that immigrated to Canada and tried so hard to hang on to any aspect of her Latinidad that she could. When I though about writing this post and began compiling the songs, it was SO hard to pick which ones to include. I spent quite a bit of time reminiscing and singing along; as well as laughing at all the cheesiness of all these videos!
For the very first time, there are 3 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2016 covers. Normally, I wouldn’t bat an eye at this, but this year is particularly special as the covers are a showcase of the diversity in women’s bodies. This is a big step forward as most covers we see in newsstands, particularly when they feature models in bathing suits, only highlight a very particular body type. The celebration of various body shapes that the SI Swimsuits 2016 covers have featured is something I would love to see more of in the future. It’s empowering!
I am SO excited for this long weekend! Saturdays and Sundays fly by and I find myself wishing for a day in between; and it has also been TOO long since the last long weekend. I’m particularly excited about this year as we’ll be able to do something fun with our little lady! Last year, she was still too little to truly enjoy any activities in the city. While I was looking for Family Day activities for this weekend, I ran into so many wonderful options. I wish we could make it to all of them!
I AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS SHOW!
Remember when I shared the Fuller House Teaser in December? Well, here’s the Fuller House Trailer! There is no doubt that on February 26th I will be completely unavailable as I will be binge watching Fuller House along with my hubby and Zoey.
