I've hit a huge milestone in my personal life and on the blog. Although I won't tell you (just yet), I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your continued support for all these years. I love you all so much for visiting my blog, for commenting/emailing me, and for enjoying what I love to do. Without you, NYTM wouldn't be possible.
I've put together two prize boxes filled with goodies. All you have to do is subscribe to my YouTube channel and let me know in the comment section of the video, which box you'd like?
Box 1 or Box 2? The winner will be randomly selected and announced May 25th.
Best of luck everyone.
Welcome back to Walk-the-Walk Wednesday, where the topic is always fashion related.
Many of you were asking me what I wore during my trip to Playa del Carmen, Mexico. If it was up to me I would've worn denim shorts and a light chiffon top like this one by Moon River all day long. It wasn't too hot where I stayed ( Grand Hyatt in Playa del Carmen ) yet I still couldn't handle the humidity. As you can see my hair did not want to cooperate and it's why I had to do a messy braid.
There's nothing more satisfying than unintentionally teaching your kids good things. I've always been well aware that kids pick up absolutely everything their parent do and say. This is the reason why my husband and I are very careful as to what we do and say in front of the kids. Over the past two years I've been practicing yoga on and off. Yoga helps me in many ways. For example; when I'm having a really tough day I love doing yoga to help me clear my mind. Yoga also helps me with my posture or when I simply need a good stretch. Most of the times I practice yoga when the kids are at school or when the kids are asleep. This is basically the only quite time I get on a daily basis. Although they don't physically see me practicing yoga, they know I do it.
A few weeks ago my oldest daughter started watching yoga on YouTube. I didn't really think much of it. Just thought she was curious since I talk about it sometimes. A few days later she asked for workout gear. We've always been very athletic, we love running and doing various outdoor activities and enjoy watching American Ninja Warrior. The next thing I knew, she was practicing yoga in our living room. One thing is introducing some type of sport to your children or forcing them to do an activity. Something completely different is when they pick up an activity on their own because they purely enjoy it.
I was shocked and happy, of course. This goes to show... they're always watching!
I have an unbelievable amount of respect for all mothers. We have thee hardest job in the world. We do it with grace, without complaining and without expecting anything in return. & someone like this should be celebrated every single day. I wanted to personally wish each and every one of you a happy Mother's Day. I hope you all enjoy this day with the super woman in your life.
I don't know about you, but I think Mother's Day should be every single day. Do you agree?
I really dislike the pressure that comes with gifting a loved one anything, especially mom. You want them to feel like you didn't just buy it, but you thought about them the minute you saw the item. Let's just say.. buying a gift is easy. I mean, anyone can do it. You have to do a little something extra to show them they are special.
Gifts sometimes fill us with joy and every time we see it, it reminds us of the person who gave it to us. Every year I try to gift something special to my mom because I know how much she loves gifts. She would prefer a pair of shoes instead of a fancy dinner any day. Now you see where I get the shoe obsession from. haha.
Today I decided to handpick a few of my absolute favorite beauty products along with a few I wish someone gave me (I hope you're reading this, Moe). I wanted to also be realistic about the prices and keep the quality of the brand high. This gives us the chance to take mom to dinner, buy her flowers and gift her a little something special during dessert. Because every mother should be treated like a queen everyday.
& since it's Walk-the-Walk Wednesday I wanted to share my latest pair of Prada (PR53SS Cinema Evolution) sunnies which were gifted to me by VisionDirectAU. Vision Direct AU is an online shop that offers designer sunglasses at a reduced price, prescription glasses and sunglasses, sports sunglasses and contact lenses.
I must say the packaging arrived on time and neatly in it's box and sunglass case along with a cleaning cloth. I can already tell you these are going to be my go-to sunnies for Spring/Summer. Thanks so much VisionDirectAU.
These Prada shades are available in four colors. You can shop them here.
