Mama Must-Haves

Hello there! My name is Kelsey, and I am a new mama! My little man is officially three weeks old today. In these short three weeks, I have already learned so much; and yet still have more to go. I did, however, find some fantastic products that have changed my motherhood game. I thought that I would share these products with you, just in case you are a new mama as well or are just looking for some awesome stuff!

My first Mama Must-Have is an electrical breast pump. This is more for the Mama’s that are breastfeeding and need to let out the extra milk. I love the fact that I don’t have to pump manually. I’m already so tired from being up all night with Julian; I don’t want to add more work that isn’t needed.

My second Mama Must-Have is a Brica Car Mirror. This mirror is magical! I am a working mama and get to take Julian with me. He hates the ride home and cries the entire time. Now all I have to do is turn the mirror on, it sings and has lights that will entertain him the whole drive home. It also comes with a remote so that it can be controlled while I am sitting at a red light. I am so in love!

This awesome thing puts him right to sleep!

While on the working subject, my next Mama Must-Have is the Snuggle Nest. The Snuggle Nest is a portable infant sleeper. I don’t think that I can live without this thing! He gets to sleep comfortably in the Snuggle Nest while Mama works.

He gets to lay comfortably while mama works.

My last Mama Must-Have for this blog post is the Baby Brezza. Let me say; this thing is a Keurig for making baby bottles. It dispenses formula, (however many ounces you need), warms the water, and mixes the water and baby formula for me. I have to do is put the lid on my baby’s bottle. Did I mention that it takes less than 30 seconds to do it all? The Baby Brezza comes in handy, especially for those long sleepless nights.

That brings me to the end of this post! I needed to share all of these products with you; it was killing me. I hope that you enjoyed it!

I also ended up adding our toothbrushes, toothpaste, and deodorant. I realized that I forgot to pack those after writing this blog post. LOL

I am also going to pack a sweater for my honey and the tablet in case he gets bored.

Facial Steamer Benefits

Hello there! I know that it has been a while since you’ve heard from me, but I’m sure that it’s been crazy for all of us nowadays. I hope that you are staying at home and staying safe! Enough of that, and let’s get to the real reason that you clicked on this post; The benefits of a facial steamer.

I purchased a facial steamer over a month ago and have not stopped using it since! I wasn’t sure that I was going to love it, but I took a chance anyway. My first thought about a facial steamer is that I should have purchased one a long time ago. Here are a few reasons why You need one in your life.

  1. It helps to remove toxins – You never really know how much gunk is in your skin until you clean it and see a difference.
  2.  It helps to remove blackheads and whiteheads – Need I say more? 
  3. It opens your pores – This helps to let the skincare products absorb into your skin so that all of the money that you spent on those products, doesn’t go to waste. 
  4. It helps promote collagen production – This keeps your skin looking fine as wine in the summertime!
  5. Did I mention that it helps relieve sinus problems?  
  6. It also helps to remove all of the dead skin that is on the surface of your face. 
  7. It’s very relaxing. 
  8. It leaves the skin looking healthy and glowing. 

Not only are all of those reasons great, but the facial steamer is also super affordable! I picked mine up from Amazon; I will link it below for you to check it out.

I hope that you enjoyed this post and found it informative. Next, I will be sharing my at-home skincare routine that will include the facial steamer. Keep a lookout for that! I hope that you have a wonderful week!

For today’s blog post, I want to share my new goals for March. You guys seem to like these posts the most, so here you go! 

  1. Work with a local boutique- I have mentioned before that I want to start working with more local companies. This month I’m going to make it a priority to make sure that it happens. 
  2. I have reached 4,000 followers on Instagram- I currently stand at 3,815 followers. I’m not too far behind my goal; I know that it will happen. 
  3. I have my first pop-up shop- This will happen, I signed up for a local pop-up on the 29th of this month!
  4. I have 1,600 blog followers.
  5. I have $1,900 in my savings account- so far, I have reached the rest of my goals when it comes to savings. 
  6. I have a new blog post up once a week- this is a little harder than it seems, but I am going to try my best!

I know that some of these goals are the same as last month, but that means that I need to work harder to achieve them. I hope that this inspires you to write down your goals so that you can reach them as well.

Shein Curve Haul

Happy THURSDAY! I hope that your week is going great so far; today, I have a small haul for you from Shein Curve. This is the second time that I have placed an order with them, and so far, I love all of the pieces that I bought! So here is what I purchased.

If you haven’t heard of Shein Before, it’s a clothing website that sells cute clothes for a very affordable price. The quality isn’t always the best, but when I can buy a brand new cute dress for $10, sign me up! They have a wide variety of sizes; they have regular to plus sizes. I do recommend sizing up if you decide to purchase anything from Shein. I bought everything in size 20, and the shoes are a size 9.

I love T-shirt dresses, they are so comfy! So I purchased two, just different colors.

10 Favorite Amazon Purchases

LATELY, I HAVE BEEN WATCHING A LOT OF YOUTUBERS SHOW WHAT THEY PURCHASED ON AMAZON, AND I HAVE LOVED IT. SO TODAY I THOUGHT THAT I WOULD SHARE MY FAVORITE AMAZON PURCHASES WITH YOU!

  1. My all-time favorite purchase from Amazon has been my fluffy red sweater. I wear it almost every day; it’s so cute and comfortable.  
  2. Throughout this pregnancy, my Amazon favorite is the Rumor Has It Maternity shirt. It’s so cute, comfortable, and super affordable. I currently have two more chilling in my cart. 
  3. This clear bag is so on-trend and perfect for Instagram photos. I use it every time I head to a meeting or a social event. 
  4. Tennis shoes have been my go-to lately. Perfect for my pregnancy and all of the walking that I do. 
  5. Another purchase that I use almost every day is these fantastic makeup brushes. They are super affordable and have lasted so long. 
  6. Staying in the beauty aspect, I purchased a new curling iron! I love me some cute curls. 
  7. Now it’s time for some phone accessories! I can’t get over my phone case. It looks super expensive, but it wasn’t! 
  8. As a blogger, I take a lot of my photos, so when I found this Amazon purchase, I had to have it. This SideKick phone mount is so convenient and easy to use. 
  9. I am a planner fool, so for the new year, I needed to try out a new planner. I found this Legendary planner that is so cute and motivational, right up my alley and affordable, once again. 
  10. Last but not least, I purchased a game for family night. Sequence is such fun, and the entire family plays it for hours and hours. It’s a game of strategy, and I ended up buying it for two of my other family members.

Top 5 Favorite Maternity Favorites

I am currently in my 6th month of pregnancy, what a long journey this has been. On this journey, I have been through a lot, but I have sound some favorites that have kept me happy during this time. I feel the need to share these products with you just in case you are in the same boat that I am. These favorites are some game-changers; I hope that you enjoy this post. 

  1. Coconut Oil – My skin has been incredibly dry this pregnancy; my son has been sucking all of the moisture from my skin and leaving me with nothing. Coconut oil has saved my skin! It has so many benefits, not only is it a great makeup remover, but it is also an excellent moisturizer.
  2. What To Expect When You’re Expecting– This book has helped me understand the changes that my body has been going through and the growth of my baby.
  3. Adjustable Maternity Pant Extenders– These bad boys have saved me a ton of money. No need to splurge on maternity pants, when these exist.
  4. Anything Sour- Sour skittles, sour belts, just anything sour.
  5. Leggings- They always fit!

All of these products I have been using religiously! I hope that I helped you discover a maternity favorite. If you have any products that you recommend, I would love to try them out! Please leave them in the comments.
