A few of our favorite things...3-6 months

It's hard to believe that my little love bug is already 7 months! Take a look at a few of the things that got us through the past few months!

1.) Angelcare Sensor Monitor with Sound Movement - The MINUTE I saw Mia flipping on her tummy, the first thing that came to my mind was SIDS. I would lose sleep just STARING at her and checking on her constantly. It's true when they say that a mother sleeps with one eye open. At the time I was working so it was necessary that I get some shut-eye so I ran to Babies 'R Us and purchased this. You place this right under the crib mattress and it detects your child's breathing, movement and sound. HEAVEN SENT! When your child is not detected, it sounds off extremely loud. I wouldn't call them false alarms, but it was so accurate that Mia moved away from the sensor pad and it went bazurk! A MUST buy if you want to sleep in peace!

2.) Motorola Color Video Monitor - This monitor has amazing sound, color and range! A few cool features is when your little one is fussy, you can push a button and talk to them. It also reads room temperature and you can pan the camera around the room to see what's going on!

3.) Fisher Price Rock n' Play Sleeper - OMGeezy, this thing is SUCH a life saver. We travel often and we take this sucker everywhere! After she got use to sleeping on her tummy I felt bad when we went on a trip and put her in this to sleep (thinking she'd be uncomfy). This little munchkin slept FABULOUS in it, her usual 8 hours of sleep! (yes she's awesome like that)

4.) Orbit Baby Stroller - This has to be one of the best strollers on the market! With Hollywood and its baby boom, you've probably seen this stroller gracing the pages of every mag on the shelves. It's easy on the eye with the modern sleek look, you can rotate your baby 360 degrees and it has one hand handed stroller fold. So easy to use! I got the travel collection which includes the infant car seat and the infant to toddler stroller seat. It has a hefty price tag, but SO worth it!

5.) BabyBjorn Baby Carrier Active - I will admit that I am slacking on taking walks with her but when I did and I used this bad boy, she loved it! It sat in her closet for months and I couldn't use it cause she looked so tiny and odd in it and I finally got to whip it out! She enjoyed the walk and staring up at the sky and touching the flowers as we passed by and of course jammed to some Pandora on my cell. Note to self: must take a walk tomorrow*

6.) Baby Einstein Musical Motion Activity Jumper - This thingy is AWESOME! The picture really doesn't do much justice but it looks like a crazy spaceship of some sort. Everytime someone walks in they have to go and push a button or comment on it. It was a baby shower gift and Mia LOVES it! It plays music, teaches your little one basic colors and oh English, Spanish and French..RAD!

7.) Over size plastic bib by Trumpette - Mia had her first rice cereal when she turned 5 months and gobbled it down! I wasn't prepared for how messy it was going to get (thinking: I have the spoon and I will put it straight in her mouth). I ordered this HUGE clear bib by Trumpette and its freakin cool and so easy to clean. She has several plastic bibs cause they're so convenient! Invest in a few. 

8.) Chicco Polly Magic Highchair in Rattania - Right when I saw this high chair I KNEW it was the one! Does that sound dramatic? LoL! We have a rustic/eclectic/mediterranean style home with dark wood floors and my dining room table is dark wood with beautiful beige seating and it looks SO cute parked next to them. Matches SO perfect! Oh..and it's easy to clean and easy to move around! (the important stuff ;)

9.) Marc Jacobs Diaper Bag - I have a couple of diaper bags and this one just seems to be my go-to. It's black, goes with everything, comes with a changing pad, lots of pockets...what else do ya need!? I would also suggest buying a large tote/handbag that you love and just carrying that as well. Just tell your husband that it's "transitional" HEHE

10.) Summer Infant Super Activity Seat - When Mia was too little to play in her Einstein jumper, this is what she would use. She still sits in when i'm in the kitchen, working or getting ready in my closet. I just prop her in there and she's happy as can be! It's also great for travel!

Summer Beauty Must Haves

So how's a girl to keep her "beauty cool" this Summer...get a hold of my beauty picks! 

1.) Aveeno - Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer
I do not leave home without this moisturizer. Whenever I'm feeling uber lazy, I can go all day without an ounce of makeup as long as I have this on. It gives me an amazing, healthy fresh face glow. By far one of THE best moisturizers I have ever used. 
2.) Smashbox - Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35
We've all heard the "BB CReam" raves and I must say this is a winner! It primes, has amazing coverage, controls oil and has SPF 35, double win!
3.) Nars Blush/Bronzer Duo in Orgam/Laguna (New, Limited Edition) Also comes in 5 other color combos
I know these two shades are oldies, but DEFINITELY goodies and the fact that they combined them together is a bonus for this Summer! With a great bronzing brush and a few dabs of the Laguna bronzer with a hint of the Orgasm blush, you'll like you just left the beach with a fresh tan!
4.) Benefit Cosmetics - Erase Paste
I will admit that this brightener/camouflage is a little concentrated for this hot weather, HOWEVER, if you use it correctly (which is recommended a TINY bit) it's one of my best discoveries! If you've had a rough night or just want an instant face awakener, follow the step by step concealing and brightening lesson that it comes with and you'll look like you've had hours of beauty sleep with a rockin' glow!
5.) Josie Maran - Coconut Water Cheek Gelee
This blendable blush provides that "I just pinched my cheek to get some color" look, except it's way more awesome than that! This blush is infused with 50% pure coconut water and instantly hydrates while nourishing with vitamin E argan oil. Up to 14 hours of hydration and 14 hours of color (i'm on hour 9 and it's still amaze)!
6.) Dior - Birds of Paradise Nail Lacquer
I usually have about two go-to Summer nail polish colors that consists of white and coral. This year I threw in this fabulous peacock feather green and turquoise combo from Dior. LOVE!
7.) Bite Beauty - High Pigment Matte Pencil in Syrah (nude peach)
When you think "matte" you think dry, dull, chappy lips. Quite to the contrary, this lip color pencil is so smooth and is jam packed with nourishing, restorative and antioxidant ingredients! Not only that, each one is HANDCRAFTED and made in small batches to preserve the hydrating benefits of organic oils, fruit butters and bioactives! Sounds complicated, I know, just try rocks! (Creds to Sephora and is exclusively sold at Sephora)
8.) Urban Decay - Naked 2
I felt like I hit the lottery of eye shadows when I first discovered Urban Decay Naked a while back and Naked2 is the follow up to the best selling palette. You can take this palette with you when you head to the beach for a neutral bronze look to a night out in Vegas and turn your lids into a sexy smokey eye. 
9.) Aquage - Sea Salt Texurizing Spray
With the humidity at an all time high, who has time to straighten their hair then curl it so by the time you get to work your hair looks like a mop?! Not me. As soon as you jump out of the shower and detangle your hair, spray this on and just let your hair air-dry. My trick is to spray my hair, put it in a high loose bun and by mid day I can take it down and it looks like i've spent the day at the beach with great beach bum waves! (can find at a salon near you)
10.) Escada - Cherry in the Air
I love a nice, sweet smell. I bought this during my Sephora haul today and it makes me...happy. It smells so yummy!
