G A B L E S Strolling

I am going to sound like a broken record, but oh boy is it so hard for me to work on a post for the blog now a days, to make matters worse, half the time the wifi is either working at molasses speed or is not connecting, so the very little time that I find to get working on a post, I find myself trying to work out these technical issues, which by the time I am able to fix them, I have to go back to #mamaduties, so I end up back at square one. Anyway, enough about my rant, I want to work on some travel posts that I have way overdue, some that are two years old...yikes, but like that good old saying goes, better late than never. Hopefully this week or the following I can start on the editing part so that I can share some fun travels we did while we were still living in the EU (sigh) and pre-baby era. 

About this post, funny how social media works, I find it spectacular both for its pros and cons. This being a pro, see. I met Jenise, the photographer through social media, her husband and I went to high school together and she started following my blog, and one day she realized we had one degree of separation, or however that works. I began to follow her, she has an adorable blog about mommyhood called A Toddler & A Topknot but as you may already suspect, she is also a photographer. As I became a mom, I began to reach out to other moms or soon to be moms just to get tips and such, and she was one of them. That brought us to this point, where we worked together on two outfit sessions. we had such a fun day, kiddos and all, that I wish I had more days like that, with like minded mamas who want to create, connect and lend a hand. Thank you for the lovely photos and for a fun day Jenise!

J A R R I T O S Saturday

J A R R I T O S Saturday

As a new mom, getting on a schedule of any sort has been a struggle, at least for me. I think the major problem is that I am currently a stay at home mom as they call it, therefore, the only schedule I have managed to master is the feeding and sleeping schedule of #babyOlivia, but slowly I am working on getting my thing together and working on my creative mojo. I am also, crawling out the new parent cloud that every new parent goes through for the first two months, more on that on another post. Plus, I know that most people now a days don't really check blogs anymore, so that makes anyone feel uninspired, you want to know that people will take the time to come to your blog to see what you have to say, after all, it takes a lot of effort to work on one particular post, but even with that knew reality, I get nostalgic and so I still come back. 

Anyway, this post was an impromptu one, as so it seems to be the new case for me. This look was worn for my mama's birthday breakfast at Cracker Barrel in Homestead, every time I am in Homestead, which is not often, I make it a point to go to my go to Mexican supermarket and stock up on all sorts of goodies, which I posted on my IG stories the day I was there, that includes the never to miss Jarritos Mexican soda that I love, the only soda I will drink, because I am a strictly water kinda girl. What is your choice of drink on the daily?

Side note, I am currently obsessed with kimonos, like this Forever 21 that I am wearing, but I want this ONE as well.

The Rebound Look

The Rebound Look

I call this the rebound look because I am back to my old self and I couldn't be happier, don't get me wrong, I enjoyed being pregnant for most of the time but on occasion I would have my days where I felt desperate to give birth, so I can hold my baby girl in my arms and fit into my regular jean, what pregnant girl doesn't dream of that, am I right? Not only do you want to fit into your old jeans, you also want to fit into any regular shoe, even more so one with some heel on it, because towards the end of your pregnancy you end up having just one pair of shoe that fit your swollen feet. Luckily for me, I found these leopard print beauties through Octer, a new site that has many of our favorite brands in one place. If you are like me and love to browse the Internet for what is new and fresh but hate to be going from one website to the next, then Octer is for you, they make it easy to find exactly what you were looking for right in one place. I found so many things I wanted but I ended up settling for this pair of heels because I knew they had the right amount of sexy but still comfy enough to keep me from hitting the floor, after all, 9 months have passed since I wear any heels. 

P.s. I am so obsessed with my new bell sleeve top, I practically want to wear it in my sleep, yes crazy alert but hey give this mama a break, she is just happy to be wearing normal clothes.
