FearlessBeauty

with Moroccanoil

Show fearlessness, always! I am fearless when I change up my look. I am fearless when I play with color. I am fearless all around! With a different hair color pretty much every month, keeping my hair strong and healthy is 100% necessary! The Moroccanoil Repair Collection gives me total peace of mind when living life with #FearlessBeauty! As a busy mama that doesn't always have much time for an extensive beauty routine, the Moisture Repair Shamoo and Conditioner are my go-to. With a precision cut, as I have, blow drying is KEY so I always make time for the Perfect Defense, giving the best high heat protection and leaves my hair soft and smelling delightful! Then if my little dude isn't climbing on something, I make sure to use a touch of the Mending Infusion on my ends to protect my bowl cut! It's important to take the time for ourselves, especially as a parent. I am fearless in doing so! My hair protection is always a must!

Now, I have a challenge for you! 

Post/share your experiences in being fearless on your social channels with the phrase "I am fearless when I ____" #FearlessBeauty for a chance to win a complete Morrocanoil Repair Collection (valued at $400).

No fear, just go for it! 

Paradise City

Take me back, take me back to paradise...

Recently, my family hit the road to spend a week in a paradise known as Rosemary Beach/Alys Beach. Let me just say, it was pure magic! If you've never been, you should take a visit. The architecture is impeccable and the vibe is even better. Rad images just come easy with a shoot location like this and it doesn't hurt to have your love behind the lens (becoming quite the awesome photographer). Honest, this was the best vacation to date, why, you may ask?! Well because it was our baby boy, Axel's first vacay and we just had a blast! He loved the sand, sun, and people watching, because let me be real...my son is a little nosy boy. His curiosity is one of my favorite things. Be curious, my darlin'! Mama is curious too. Look at the world, appreciate it and be your true self, always.

The following looks were inspired by my surroundings and the happiness from within. Enjoy!

A beautiful journey, it's been! Today marks 37 weeks of a truly amazing experience, carrying my first child. An absolute blessing, indeed. I can't even begin to believe how fast the time has gone by. Soon enough, and our baby boy will be nestled in our arms, along with our hearts forever! 

At a young age, I was told that I had a good chance of having a high-risk pregnancy, if I were to ever get pregnant, due to blood pressure concerns. This was a something that I never imagined hearing as someone who has always had a motherly instinct and loved children.

This pregnancy has proven to me that I was just meant to have children. Not only has my blood pressure been better than ever before, but it has been in a perfect range. At my 37 week appointment, I was told that I received an 8/8 rate for determining the environment that I have been providing for my little one. That was music to my ears, as all I want is to provide a happy and comfortable environment for him to thrive in. 

The positive environment that I am providing for my little dude wouldn't be the same without the love and complete support of my partner in life, my love, my best friend! He is the most amazing part of me in every way, making me a better mother, partner and person, all together.

Being honest, I'm truly going to miss being pregnant. The enjoyment I have, providing my baby with the perfect environment to grow each and every day outweighs anything else. Starting as a tiny little flutter in my belly, to a rolling and kicking little being, is remarkable! It breaks my heart to know that some women are not able to experience this magic. It's truly a blessing that should never be taken for granted. 

Prepping a home for a baby's arrival can be quite magical as well. This mama and papa have been working each and every day to prepare for our little dude's welcoming. With the nursery now complete, it's time to fill the home with positive energy. Cleansing and purifying the air is important to us before welcoming our baby bird. Start the cleansing process by removing negative ions from a space. Do this by burning a sage smudge stick and waving the smoke in all areas of the room. Complete the cleansing and purification process by lighting a salt lamp within the space. This purifies the space and increases blood flow, improves sleep patterns and also increases serotonin in the brain, which affects mood, sleep, appetite and memory. It may seem like a strange ritual to some people, but for this mama and papa, it truly increases the vibe within a space. Positive vibes and energy is very important to us as partners and as parents.

We can't wait for our little baby bird to join our nest!

"Strike a pose. Strike a pose. Vogue, vogue, vogueVogue, vogue, vogue"-Madonna

Life is beautiful. Show your colors and be bright and bold. Take chances and move to the music of life. 

My style is my voice. Without it, I can not sing. Find your way of expression and live it each and every day. We all have a reality and a dream, I just choose to make mine intertwine.
Live life in a color that looks good on you!

Check out this killer editorial below, which was inspired by "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" mixed with a little 80s Madonna GLAM.

What a killer trio, indeed!
