What a great set from Pretty Baby. It’s perfect as a gift for any new mom and a great price. I love the pink color of both the necklace and bangle. It’s not too soft of a color and would work well with quite a bit of the clothing in my wardrobe. The bead design is very stylish. I love that it is patterned differently than most of the teething necklaces I have seen.

The teething necklace features a breakaway clasp for safety and is a great length so you don’t feel like you are being pulled in every direction when the little one is grabbing it and chewing. The bangle is sized perfectly and slips easily over my wrist but it is also a great size for my toddler to hold and chew on. She loves to wear the bangle herself. The set is well made and should hold up nicely to my toddler and her emerging molars.

They are made of 100% organic food grade silicone which I really like. I have wood teethers but I worry about my little one actually biting in to the wood. I don’t have to worry about it with the silicone beads of this necklace. The set is easy to clean by hand but it can also be washed on the top rack of the dishwasher. I am very happy with this set and would recommend it to others.

#NOTICETHELOTUS at Target…Derma-E is Here!

I am 19 years old with sensitive skin and have lately had a problem with blemishes and dark circles under my eyes. I was given the opportunity to test Derma-E’s Firming DMAE Eye Lift and Hydrating Night Creme. I am Absolutely thrilled with the results.

After using Derme-E for two weeks you can see a noticeable difference in my skin. Day 1 you can see the dark circles and blemishes easily. After a week there was a noticeable difference in how pronounced they were and after 2 weeks my skin is clear and the dark circles are gone. The products were very gentle on my skin and the blemishes and dark circles started to go away. I don’t have to use foundation to hide them anymore. I’m very happy with the results and will continue to use these products in my facial care routine.

This Has Been An Incredible Year!

Marina-Xmas2015-3Happy New Year!! I can’t thank everyone in my life enough for the love and support given to me and my daughter. I’ve had my rough patches but all of the good far outweighs any of the bad in my life.

This past year I started learning how to cope with my depression and I have finally found out what my mystery illness was that has been causing my liver to to swell. My intestines are folding. I’m not sure how bad it is yet but hopefully I will find out soon. I will be seeing a GI specialist and may require surgery to correct the fold. I know it will be a major surgery and it really frightens me. The unknown is always frightening but now we have a starting point and from here it can only be uphill.

Marina-Xmas2015-2The holidays were wonderful and I would like to thank those special people in my life that helped me make Marina’s Christmas so joyous. My family of course — but my daughter has very special angels too. Thank you guys so much for the wonderful gifts. You always have a special place in our hearts <3

And Fisher-Price…You ROCK! What started as a simple inquiry about upcoming holiday sales turned into a wonderful gift for my baby girl this Christmas. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the puppy for Marina to cuddle and the coupon that allowed me to be able to really provide my baby girl with some awesome Christmas Gifts from me. Your customer service reps are just amazing people.

Marina-BabyJackI’d also like to thank the wonderful companies that Marina and I have had a chance to work with this year.  It has been a pleasure working with you and we look forward to working with you in the future.

I can’t begin to thank everyone enough. I am truly blessed and I look forward to what the future holds for both of us.



Review – TX Juice Sonar Copter – ON SALE!!

TX Juice Sonar Copter

The world’s first helicopter to feature Sonar technology and Artificial Intelligence. Fed up with crash take off and landings from regular toy helicopter? Activate the patented auto-take off with just one press of the Juice Button thus avoiding ceiling and wall crashes on take off. Find out more on Amazon.

Sale Price: $18.93  Regular Price: $79.99

This helicopter was purchased for my 15yo brother as a Christmas gift. So far he really likes it. It is easy to fly and control. The take off and landing can be controlled by sonar to keep you from accidentally crashing it. It seems to be sturdy in the body and the rotors but the legs are a little flimsy. He had one break during the first use but it was easily fixed with a little super glue. The actual fly time is really short. He gets somewhere between 5 – 10 minutes of fly time and it takes 30 minutes to charge back up. Once you really get the helicopter up and flying you have to bring it back down because of the battery life. I think the pros outweigh the cons because he is having fun with it so I would still recommend this. I can’t wait to fly it myself after Christmas break when he’s back in school. I do not think it is worth the actual recommended retail price but it was a very good deal right now!


The Hard Work Is Paying Off!

CM1I found out yesterday that I will graduate in May with both an Associate’s in Arts and an Associate’s in Science. After the fall of 2016 I should also have an Associate’s in Criminal Justice. I plan on continuing to complete a Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology. The past couple of years has been an incredible journey of both ups and downs from learning how to be a parent to battling depression.

The hard work is worth it and I don’t think I could have come this far without my support network. I have a wonderful family and some incredible friends that have stuck by me through all of this. I will be someone that my daughter can me proud of.

Marina2As for Marina…I can’t believe how fast she is growing. She’s not a baby anymore. She is a spunky and loving little girl who surprises me everyday with something new she has learned. She’s getting so tall and starting to loose her chunky little legs. She loves going for walks and playing in the park. She can be stubborn and bullheaded or as sweet as sugar depending on her mood. From what mom tells me, she’s the perfect toddler and just like me when I was her age.

I am really looking forward to the holiday break in between semesters so I can spend more time with my little cuddle bug.
