Best Blue Light Blocking Glasses


 I started wearing blue light blocking glasses a few months back after getting constant eye strain and headaches from using my phone/laptop for hours. Now I can't work without them.

I'm the type of person who loves quality over quantity because you end up spending less in the long-run when you make the right decisions. I'm speaking from experience after purchasing a knockoff pair from Amazon and not getting the results I wanted. I then decided to invest in a few reliable pairs that would give me good results. Here they are.

Thought You Should Know

Hey guys! Just wanted to hop on here to chat as we've all been dealing with this quarantine differently. 

Today, I woke up feeling a bit different ( in a good way ). I'm not exactly sure why but I think it might have something to do with me FaceTiming my friend Maria over the weekend. We chatted for awhile. It felt like we were out on our typical girls night catching up on life. We spoke about our daily quarantine schedule, planning her wedding ( she's getting married in October ) and we got excited over the arrival of her wedding shoes. It was a nice change from my tedious past few weeks. So I feel refreshed in a way.

¡Hola chicos! Solo quería venir aquí para chatear, ya que todos hemos estado lidiando con esta cuarentena de manera diferente.

Hoy, me desperté sintiéndome un poco diferente (en el buen sentido). No estoy exactamente segura de por qué, pero creo que podría tener algo que ver conmigo FaceTiming mi amiga María durante el fin de semana. Charlamos por un rato. Hablamos sobre nuestro horario diario de cuarentena, planeamos su boda (se casará en octubre) y nos entusiasmamos por la llegada de sus zapatos de boda. Fue un cambio agradable de mis últimas semanas. Entonces me siento renovada de alguna manera.

Happy Birthday Hazel

IMG_9968

Yesterday I celebrated my daughter Hazel's 9th birthday. It wasn't her ideal celebration of a birthday party but I wanted it to be as special as possible. Jayleen (her older sister) baked her a funfetti explosion cake and we sang happy birthday to her. She wore her favorite party dress and posed for photos in our family room. We gave her a wrapped gift and watched her eyes light up as she opened the barbie dream house she had been wanting for months.

Ayer celebré el noveno cumpleaños de mi hija Hazel. No fue su celebración ideal de una fiesta de cumpleaños, pero quería que fuera lo más especial posible. Jayleen (su hermana mayor) le preparó un pastel de explosión de funfetti y le cantamos feliz cumpleaños. Ella se puso su vestido de fiesta favorito y posó para fotos en nuestra sala. Le dimos un regalo envuelto y vimos sus ojos brillar mientras abría la casa de ensueño de Barbie que había estado esperando durante meses.

We Are All In This Together

As I hop out of my daily epsom salt + lavender bath,  I get an uncontrollable urge to write. That might be because I haven't done it in a while or maybe because I've been on social media way too much these past few days. 

I know by now we have all seen what is going on in the world about COVID-19 and I can't help but feel overwhelmed with the outpour of information provided by everyone.

I admit to getting caught up with sharing memes on instagram, tweets and snaps. As much as I was doing all this to spread information to everyone I also feel like it's my responsibility as an influencer to help you stay calm during these stressful times. 

This short post is to remind you to take deep breaths. Take a break to be home with your family. We need to be mindful of everyones health at this time. With that said,  you can still support your local restaurants/shops by ordering out. Here are some of my favorites.










they support refugees and asylum seekers )

During this break i'll be home as much as possible catching up on my favorite shows and reading The 7 1/2 Deaths Of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton. Stay safe guys and remember to wash your hands.
