Can do, Cantu curls

My daughter has beautiful naturally curly hair. I also have natural curly hair but have struggled with the finding the perfect products to compliment my curls. I love styling her hair. In these particular photos I used Cantu’s Leave-in Conditioning Repair Cream and Cantu’s Kids Care Curl Cream. As I was styling, I used a wide tooth comb to spread the product throughout her hair and let it air dry. The Cantu products don’t make he hair hard or sticky. He her was defined and moisturized all day long! My favorite for her hair is definitely the kids care curl cream.

Date Night Blues

My biggest weakness are bags. It doesn’t matter how many I have, I’m always tempted to buy a new one. I saw this beauty at Target. The brand is A Brand New Day. I tried to find the link to it on their website but couldn’t find it. It must be sold out and I can understand why. I love the color, I love the design. It’s going to be perfect for this spring and summer, especially to take on any trips as a small carry all.

Last night my fiancé and I had a date night. I wanted to take him to a sushi restaurant in Elk Grove, Ca. He has never tried this place so I thought, “why not?” It was so delicious. I cannot wait to go back. Plus it was such a chic place for dates!

PMS… is real

*TMI following…

I’m laying in bed right now, irritated. My period only escalated my irritation.

Since giving birth I started noticing a change in my period. Before being pregnant, my period was tolerable. I didn’t have bad cramps, I wasn’t overly emotional , it was just an quick and simple cycle. Post birth, I started to feel bad cramps and I’d get overly emotional. Usually I’m very good at controlling my emotions. I don’t allow any emotion to escalate. The past few months it seemed like my pms would take a simple emotion and heighten times 10.

I hate it. Even me typing this post and thinking about it makes me mad. My hormones are crazy. If you can’t already tell, I’m on my period. You’re welcome.

Easter Weekend

Hello bloggers and readers!

I have been m.i.a. lately. I haven’t been doing anything all too exciting. Easter weekend was very eventful though. We went to local zoo all afternoon on Saturday. Then Sunday we attended Easter church service and spent time between our families. I want to take more pictures and do more videos so hopefully I’ll have some nice content for you all soon!

Health kicks

This weekend was full of bonding and healthy juices, smoothies, açaí bowls, and shoes.

My hubby took me to a new juice and smoothie bar called Nekter Juice Bar and it is awesome. Of course places like this are always more on the pricier side but an occasional treat here and there doesn’t hurt. Plus their juice is something my hubby likes so that makes it much easier to get him to drink some healthy juices!

Meal break

I apologize for not posting my lunch meals from the past few days. I have been busy traveling a little bit for work. I did want to share with you all with what I’ve been up to. Emi and I had some free time to window shop. I found this book at Michael’s and I had to buy it. We’ve read it the past two nights. I also felt it heavy on my heart to type a little prayer over my life. I know I’ve shared my prayers with you all before, so I added a photo of it here. I hope you all have a blessed day and night.

Meal Preppin’ 9

This would have been today’s lunch in my rush this morning I grabbed the wrong container. What I would’ve had was: baked tilapia over a bed of rice, sliced avocados, and roasted carrots. I had a late start to prepping my lunch last night so I decided to keep things simple. In total, including prepping and cooking time, this meal took me 45 minutes. I love quick and easy delicious meals.
