Bath Time With Baby Dove

 Being a stay-at-home mom is not an easy breezy walk in the park. Before I became a mom I never thought that I would be a stay-at-home mom. I guess I never really thought about it. Then when I found out I was pregnant with our oldest ( Addi ) it was a no-brainer. Daycare is so expensive and it didn't make sense for us. Spencer and I decided that we didn't want strangers raising our kids. Flash Forward to now, it has been six in a half years and we now have two beautiful girls that I get to spend all day with. I would be lying if I said there are days that I didn't wish they were in daycare, some days just start off on the wrong foot. Majority of the days though, are all I ever dreamed being a parent would be.

On those not-so-great days, two of the things that I start looking forward to is 1. When will Spencer get home from work, and 2. bath time, because bath time is that much closer to bedtime. The reason I look forward to Spencer getting home is that I can finally get a little breather and I can finally go to the bathroom alone! The girls immediately run to him and for a few minutes everything is all about dad and we can't wait to tell him about our LONG day.

Somehow when dads come home everything seems to get a little better and things start to calm down a little more. One of my favorite things about Spencer is that he is always so involved and willing to always help. No matter what kind of day he's had at work, he comes home and is present with our girls. And just how I need a partner that I can rely on my tough days, I also need a brand that I can rely on when it comes to my kids. Since bath time is our favorite time around here, we take it very seriously. That is why our family uses Baby Dove products.

Baby Dove products range from Shampoo to wipes. What I love about these products is that they are rich in moisture, so I know that the girl's skin will be healthy. We use the Shampoo, tip to toe wash, both rich in moisture. As well as the body lotion that also comes with the rich moisture solution. A few of my favorite things about the Baby Dove products are that they are as gentle as water, tear free, and hypoallergenic. Their formulas are made without dyes, parabens, or phthalates. Giving our girls the best is something we won't compromise on.  They also have a line for little ones whose skin is sensitive.

So once bath time rolls around, it turns into a family affair. We all cram into the girls' bathroom and it really becomes a team effort and turns into the best part of the day. We all gather and talk and laugh. And there is nothing more I love than a fresh and clean baby, or babies since no matter how old my girls are, they will always be my babies.

Traveling In Comfort With Climate Right by Cuddl Duds


Hey, everyone, I hope this post finds you well. I am excited and looking forward to finally slowing down and taking a break this weekend. It is the first weekend I don't HAVE to actually do anything. Christmas was so good to us this year and we were so blessed to be surrounded by so much family and love. We traveled to San Diego to spend time with Spencer's family and it was much needed. We did so much celebrating and eating. And just enjoying time with family we haven't seen in a long time.

Traveling to visit family is something that we will always have to do because we have family in different states. I don't mind traveling at all I actually love it. Of course, we do have to spend a few hours in the car and with the kids, it can add a few more hours to any road trip. So comfort while traveling is what I aim for. Some might not like to travel in Pajamas and I was one of those but recently I came across ClimateRight by Cuddl Duds at Walmart and these pajamas are a game changer. My pants even have pockets in them. And my V-neck shirt doesn't look like an average sleepwear top. They are so comfy and don't really look like pajamas at all. They come in different colors and prints so I had options to choose from. Not to mention you get them for a steal of a price at Walmart. I got my ClimateRight sleepwear in just the perfect time because of the cold front we are getting. The stretch fleece fabric is enough to be warm and also comfortable.

 My ClimateRight sleepwear is perfect for layering. If you are going from sleep to street all you have to do is throw on a light jacket over. I layered mine with this faux fur vest and it just looks like a comfy two piece. I went with this pattern that looks like snowflakes in the color of lavender and mint. So festive for winter! Since the pieces are sold separately you can mix and match them to your liking. Since we are still on winter break I am definitely wearing my sleepwear all day long. If I need to go out all I have to do is throw on some shoes and that's it.

ClimateRight by Cuddl Duds is exclusively available at Walmart, the best part is that you can shop from home and get free in-store pick-up OR two-day free shipping ( with a qualifying $35 purchase) So what are you waiting for. You will love these pieces for everyday use.

Holiday Crawl At Tivoli Village + Gift Guide

This post is perfect for my Las Vegas locals! If you are a local keep reading. If you are planning to visit Las Vegas in the near future this will be perfect to keep in mind for your next visit. This past weekend a few girls and myself were invited into the amazing Tivoli village. A good fellow blogger friend of ours Jetsettindaisy made arrangements and Tivoli village was kind enough to give us a tour of their stores. We got to experience a lot of first-hand things and saw a lot of fun stores. What I love about these stores is that they are all locally owned. So many amazing things perfect for this gifting season.

Our holiday crawl started at Hub Modern. A super cool and super modern store located at tivoli village. They have a modern, yet simple gift and decor ideas that are so amazing. Everything inside this store gave me so much inspiration and now I want to do some major updates on my home decor. Everything in the store is super unique and most of the things serve as a multifunctioning which I find amazing. When I first walked in they have this amazing blue modern couch that I immediately wanted in my living. Also when you first walk in there is a neon 'love' sign that I also want! Some of my favorite pieces included these supper cute and modern succulent planters, A kitty cube pet bed that doubles as a bed and scratcher, and the gallery style frames that hang from the wall.

 Our second stop was Gypsy05. A hip and contemporary store bringing you handmade accessories and clothing. They have reinvented and mastered the tie-dye industry.  I love the earth and bohemian vibes this boutique offers. SO many unique pieces that are perfect for gifting.

 D'annata was next on our stop and this shop was every girl's dreams. So pink and girly stocked with all things pretty with a mix of home decor, clothing, baby gifts, and accessories. You are sure to find a perfect gift here.

 Look Style Society was next and it was not what I expected. This is a really glamorous salon offering services from Botox to blowouts and everything in between. Starting with the amazing decor, Look Style is definitely a place where I would go to get pampered to look and feel beautiful. It is not just for women, they have services for guys, too.

We ended our tour at the amazing Echo & Rig for cocktails. Echo & Rig is a fantastic butcher and steakhouse. They cut their meat in-house, which I thought was so neat. I've never seen a butcher shop inside the restaurant. We got a sample of their jerky, and let me tell you, I am not a jerky girl but this was so good. I told Spencer we have to come have dinner or brunch here. 

All the shops we toured were generous to offer us small gifts and all of them are wonderful. A huge thank you to the Vegas Lifestyle Influencers for putting this together. And a huge thank you to Tivoli Village and all the shops that participated in the holiday crawl. 

Don't forget to make your list and check it twice.
