Peyton's New Phone from Verizon!

I am super pumped to be one of the Verizon Wireless ambassadors of the south!!!  Why does the word ambassador sound so official, like I have to represent for the USA!  I have never been on the Verizon network so I am happy to give it a run!  The Verizon reps keep all the ambassadors staring out the window waiting for the delivery man so we could find out what phone we were getting!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

One of the best sale of the year starts on July 20th!  It is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!  The reason it is one of the best is because it sale where Nordstrom brings out NEW fall items before they are available in most stores at almost half off!  Awesome huh!  I could not link the items because they were only available for early access reward members (that sounds snooty! LOL)

image info here
Look at that baby doll!  She looks like she is ready to get into stuff!  Man she looks like Jay!

Beyonce is looking gorgeous at usual with the box braids.  I know everyone is rocking the box braids trends but I don't know if I am down with the Poetic Justice look.  But Bey does make me want to reconsider the look!  Fabulous!

Who do you think Blue Ivy looks like now?  Do you like Beyonce in the braids?

DIY: Bling Chucks Taylor's

Thank you guys for all the Birthday wishes for Peyton! 

You guys saw Peyton's Berry Sweet Birthday outfit with the wonderful skirt from Giavanna's Closet and her blinged out Chuck Taylors!  I think every little girl should have a pair of blinged out shoes!  When I decided that I wanted her to have some chucks I checked out Etsy to find a seller only to find out they cost about $80-$100.  No Ma'am!  So the jewelry maker in me set out to make my own.  Pretty easy but just takes time.

Vedette Shapewear Review: Before + After

There is no secret that I am a huge fan of shapewear!  Even before I became a mom.  I figure why limit myself to what I can and can not wear if all I need is little under garment to make the difference!

I was selected by Vedette Shapewear to be one of the first Moms to review a few pieces for the V-Shape series!  Lawd knows they picked the right person!  Check me out as I go from Flab to Fab!

Weekend Style: Colorful

We celebrated Peyton's 2nd Birthday on Saturday!  Thank you guys for all the birthday wishes!  She had a blast!  I will share pics from her party soon.  Here is a quick look at what she wore on Thursday out with me running errands for the party.

 Peyton with her Baby Alive doll.  Peyton is wearing a dress from the Carters store.  It was $7!

I just love these soft neon colors.

Were you on vacation last week?   Did you go anywhere special?  I felt like I was the only person working!

GrUVy Wear Review

July 4th is tomorrow!  Can't wait to have a day off and EAT!

Peyton received this cute active swimwear from GrUVy Wear!  As hot as it has been in Atlanta we need it!

GrUVy Wear specializes in protective swim wear that offers a UPF of 50+, blocking over 98% of the sun's harmful rays.

No matter the color of your skin you need to be protected from harmful rays!  UV rays can cause sunburn, aging and of course cancer!  Kids have to be protected from the UV rays at birth!  Most damage is done before kids reach 18 years old!  I think GrUVy Wear is a great product for kids to wear especially if they are outside for an extended period of time.  This a great option for the water park, boating, and jet skiing.

Ready to go mom!
Peyton in her hang ten pose!

Here are some other Sun Safety Tips:

  • The sun is at it's strongest between 10am - 4pm.  Try to seek shade during these times
  • Wear protective clothing!  GrUVy Wear has got you covered!
  • Apply sunscreen 15 to 30 minutes before heading outside.
  • Wear shades to protect your eyes.  Another reason to wear fabulous shades!
  • If your child gets sun burned apply pure Aloe Vera gel and you can use ibuprofen or acetaminophen to relieve pain  

GrUVy Wear has protective clothing for babies, kids and adults!  You can even mix and match tops and bottoms to match for team sports or add bling details!  

GrUVy Wear is offering 15% off to Baby Shopaholic readers until July 15!  Use code SAVE1549 at checkout

What do you do to protect yourself from UV rays?

I received a complimentary outfit from GrUVyWear in exchange for this post.  All opinions expressed are my own

Weekend Style: HOT!

Happy July!!!  Hope you guys had a great weekend!  It has literally been HOTLANTA this weekend!  It was hotter than Satan's Breath! LOL! Got  that from Andrea from Hollywood Exes. She is hilarious!  But for real, it was a record breaking 106 all weekend!

On Sunday we managed to make it to church on Sunday.  But this little sweetie pie of mine needed a nap because she was hitting people around us with the fans they pass out, running, and yelling "COOOKIEE!"  At least she looked cute in the process.
