BKids Spring Fashion Show

Last Sunday, I had the honor of hosting the Bloomingdale's Kids spring fashion preview at the the Lenox Square Mall in Atlanta.  The Bloomingdale's BKids department is humongous
 and this event was a great way for parents to check out whats hot for the spring.  Peyton participated (kinda) in the show in this preppy chic look.

Rise + Grind with Free Coffee #McCafeGrind

Some driven people say “You’re never too busy.  You can make time”.  I am too busy! And I don’t have time.  In addition to running this beautiful blog that you love : ), I work full-time outside the home, take care of my amazing daughter, attend and host events, cook (on occasion) and try to look put together while doing it.  Oh wait, I have a husband too!  Mister needs his quality time and “medicine”.  I’m tired just thinking about it.  Every day is a grind!

Mamanista Fridays: Pastels

Happy Mamanista Friday!  I'm borderline cheating on the pastel look for this week.  I didn't realize I didn't have anything pastel but two shirts.  One of them I recently wore HERE.  So I'm rocking the other shirt.  LOL!

Suakoko Betty Available at Belk + #Giveaway

One of my favorite designers, Suakoko Betty just landed in Belk stores!  I've been raving over Suakoko since I met the designer Charlene almost two years ago (here).   I said that her designs will be in stores soon and guess what? They are!  I'm so proud of her!  Her designs are so awesome so it was only a matter of time.  To celebrate Suakoko Betty is giving away this awesome clutch!

Glamglow Eye + Hydrating Treatment: Before/After

The winter has taken a toll on my skin.  I can’t recall my face ever being this dry.  I look like a shedding snake.  Even my regular moisturizer that I swore by isn't doing the trick.  Of course I need to drink more water but nothing has changed with my water intake.   What’s a lady to do?  Well, Glamglow saves the day!

Partying with Babiators

Last week, we had such a great time at the Babiators launch party for the spring collection at the Baby Braithwaite store in Buckhead.  Since we were checking out the new Babiators shades, I thought it would be fitting to wear this bright yellow dress.

Dazzling Diva

It's starting to feel a little like Spring!  At least this weekend it did.  Too bad the morning started off pretty chilly.  The Mamanista Friday theme was jeans jackets, so I was inspired for Peyton to wear one of hers this weekend.  Jean jackets are not just for us ladies, they are essential to both little boys and girls wardrobe.  Peyton recently received this fabulous jean jacket from Dazzling Diva's Classy Boutique.

Weekend Warrior Outfit

My weekends are getting pretty busy with no end in site.  This past Saturday morning I had a makeup date to support my blogger buddy, Jenny Sue Makeup for a huge makeup event at Bloomingdale's.  I had a ton of other errands to run so I put on my weekend warrior uniform which consists of a button down, boyfriends and my awesome parka/trench from Lulu's.

New Home Office on a Budget

I've been blogging for about 3 years from my bed.  No joke!  I had a little desk in a corner of my bedroom but it was always overflowing with bills, papers, packages and Peyton's stuff.  It was a HOT MESS!  We finally got a room cleared out.  Welcome to the new Baby Shopaholic Headquarters!

Rainy Day Chic

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  I was happy to have a low key weekend that didn't require me to put on real clothes. Yas!  I've been working on my new Baby Shopaholic headquarters (in my house).  More details coming on the new office coming soon.  Meanwhile, the weather was beautiful in Atlanta!  Even though the rain stopped, it didn't stop Peyton from sporting this fabulous rainy day chic outfit.

Mamanista Fridays: Trench Coat (Kinda)

Since spring is taking it's sweet little time to come, Mama Fashion File and I are styling our trench coats for Mamanista Friday.  Unfortunately, my coat isn't exactly a trench coat.  What had happened was... in my head, I keep telling myself it was a trench coat even though it's really a parka.  So act like you didn't notice because this coat from Lulu's is super cute.

Spring Trend: Floral

Spring, where are you?  I'm so over this back and forth weather.  One day I'm wearing a t-shirt and a puff coat the next.  Ugh!  I'm ready to get Spring started.  I've been gravitating towards the floral trend for the Spring.

Shea Moisture Baby for Sensitive Skin

I've had several girlfriends share with me that their babies have sensitive skin and the struggles they have finding the right products for them.   I was fortunate that Peyton didn't have any sensitive skin issues but I still like to use the best products on her skin.  I've been using Shea Moisture Organic Baby products for well over a year.  Shea Moisture has expanded their baby line to include a new Ultra-sensitive, fragrance and gluten free baby healing lotion and mild wash.

5 Quick & Easy Natural Hair Styles

I said a while ago I was going to take a longer breaks in between my getting extensions.  I love my extensions (weave) and don't plan on kicking it to the curb no time soon.  It's convenient, always looks good and a time saver.  But I need a break.  The downside is that natural hair is a lot of work and I don't have that kind of time.  I've come with a few easy styles that work for me and my natural hair.

Queen P

I hope you guys had a great weekend.  I'm dragging today after staying up late watching the Oscars.  The show was really good.  Ellen did awesome!  I laughed all night.  Speaking of Oscars, it's only fitting that Peyton would be sporting her new gold crown today.
