5 Tips To Teach Kids How To Buckle Their Car Seats Properly

First, what I need to say: I'm excited to be back in the saddle with Britax, the superior maker of car seats and strollers with this new post on tips to teach your kid how to buckle their car seats properly. I'm a proud Britax Latina Ambassador, have been using their products since before this blog existed and this post is being sponsored by them. Second, what a responsible writer/blogger/mother should say before publishing a how-to post on car seat safety: I'm not a car seat installation professional.

Charging His Mornings With Cheerios Protein… and Kisses

Charging His Mornings With Cheerios Protein… and Kisses

Daddy D rushes out of here so quickly in the mornings. Like a flash, suited and booted, he flies out the door preparing to tackle another stressful, anxiety-ridden work day. I hate it. I'm usually stuffing a breakfast bar or a peeled orange in his hand as he kisses me good bye, knowing that he won't eat a morsel until lunch time. I also know how taxing it is to start the day so frantically and have been on a mission to have Daddy D join us for breakfast. So when Cheerios asked me to try their newest selections of dry cereals, Cheerios Protein, I knew my hard working husband would be the … [Read more...]

5 Things I’ve Learned Since Upgrading the Nifty Fifty to 50mm 1.4

5 Things I’ve Learned Since Upgrading the Nifty Fifty to 50mm 1.4

Very rarely do I publish photography tutorials lately because, frankly, my photography hasn't been all that great. Primarily because my gear was in disrepair, which caused a severe lack of inspiration. I just wasn't motivated to create beautiful photography that documented our family legacy. That all changed once I upgraded the Nifty Fifty - my 50 mm f/1.8 - to a 50mm 1.4. Why did I wait so long?! Here's what WAS going in my photography world: - My 50mm 1.8 was broken. The Nifty Fifty (as so lovingly called in the momtog world) is awesome because, as a prime lens (meaning a lens that doesn't … [Read more...]

 

Pretty Side Banded Ponytail: Curly Mixed Hairstyles

Pretty Side Banded Ponytail: Curly Mixed Hairstyles

Did you know summer months can wreak havoc on curly mixed hair? The kids are more active, sweating and playing in chlorinated water, causing you to shampoo it more. Excessive shampooing can make the hair dry and cause breakage. It's tough! Biracial hair (and curly hair, in general) requires lots of moisture. Summer months can make it difficult to maintain. I'm excited to partner with JOHNSON’S NO MORE TANGLES® to provide curly mixed hairstyles that will help protect biracial hair from drying out during the hot summer months. Nourishing products, like Johnson's No More Tangle's Detangling … [Read more...]
