Childproofing Door Stopper

Hi everyone,

I am back with some tips on how to choose the best childproofing products for your home without having to destroy your doors or door/wall moldings.

Like any other new mama, I wanted to buy everything that looked like it was going to keep my child safe around the house. Sometimes I’d even buy products without reading the reviews (I blame the hormones for this #HormonalShopper)

Here is some advice. Do your research, read blogs from other moms. Read reviews and keep your receipts. Thanks to social media you have all the information at the tip of your fingertips so do yourself a favor and read about the products on those sleepless nights.

Door Knobs/Door Stopper

Ok, let’s start with the door knobs. I was looking for something simple and something that didn’t require drilling into doors and walls. After much research, I found these amazing and simple door stoppers that are called ‘Door Monkey Door Lock and Pinch Guard’

This door monkey is so easy to use, you just clip it on the door and take it out when you want to use the loo. You can purchase these from Amazon (link below). They come in a pack of two or four. Works with standard 1-3/8″ thick interior doors and standard door stop molding. Make sure to check the size of your door.

I’ll be posting more of other childproofing products soon.

OMG BOTANICALS

I want to take a moment and talk about the new pair of facial skincare I have been using for the past month. I have been waiting to talk about it but I wanted to make sure I have used it consistently to see the full results, and happy to announce that I have. It hasn’t been easy staying consistent with my routine since I’m usually running around after my toddler all day. Sometimes I even forget to eat. So, this is a proud moment. 😛

I started using the two-step Antioxidant Cleanser and Renewing serum every night exactly a month ago. Together they Cleanse, Hydrate, Plump, Renew and Protect your Skin. After using many different brands and facial creams I was initially skeptical but after my first use, I knew OMG Botanicals was different.

The Antioxidant Cleanser has a clean sensation. I could immediately tell it is a clean product with real ingredients and it left my skin feeling fresh and light after each use. I used two to three pumps of the renewing serum immediately afterward and let it soak into my skin. The first time I used it I felt like I was putting fresh cut leaves on my face. It feels great when I put it on my skin and I can feel and see the difference right away.

I can feel that pH-balanced High-Quality Hyaluronic Acid helping my skin fight time and stay rejuvenated without the oily feel. Thank you Silvana for creating these amazing products, I can’t wait to try the rest of what you create.

XOXO

All about TATCHA

After hearing all about TATCHA products from other bloggers around the world I finally gave in and ordered the TATCHA One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil and TATCHA Classic Rice Enzyme Powder.

The cleansing oil is a blend of Japanese camellia and rice bran oil that melts away even waterproof makeup, cleanses and conditions the skin in one simple step. And the Rice Enzyme powder is a water activated enzyme exfoliate. Once you mix the powder with water and apply it to your face it releases dirt and debris from the skin giving the skin that soft polished feel. The ingredients include Japanese rice bran, skin-conditioning pearl and HADASEI-3 Bioactive Complex, a proprietary blend of rice bran, green tea and red algae extract. Formulated without mineral oil, synthetic fragrances, sulfate detergents, parabens, PEGs, PPGs, urea, DEA, TEA or phthalates, which makes it ideal for all skin types.

At first I wasn’t sure if I needed both, but since I was ready to try this brand I gave in and purchased both items. Here are my reviews:

TATCHA One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil

How to use:

Dry hands, one to two pumps of the oil start rubbing it on your face from forehead to the neck in a circular motion. The oil smells so good and even feels better and velvety when you rub it on your face. It is a cleanser and a remover, perfect for those stubborn water proof eye mascaras. Just take your time and rub those areas that need more attention a little longer for cleaner results. Once done, just splash some water on your face and dry it off. I love this product. I really don’t like using eye makeup remover and this has been my solution for those lazy nights. My skin is very much acne prone especially when I use something oily, but this product didn’t make me break out or leave my skin feeling oily. Overall, it’s a perfect product for me and I love the smell and the way it leaves my skin feeling after I dry it off.

Fun fact: Japanese Geisha’s use this oil to remove all that make up including that thick white mask.

TATCHA Classic Rice Enzyme Powder

This is a powder with Indigo soothing rice enzyme. It’s a gentle exfoliate that left my skin baby soft immediately after using it. After reading and researching I found out that Japanese indigo used in Chinese medicine to treat redness and pain is  powerful in anti-inflammatory botanicals extracted from indigo plants, which work to soothe and calm sensitive skin. (where has this been all my life?) Hadasei-3 bioactive complex is a proprietary antioxidant, antiaging complex of green tea, Okinawa red algae, and Japanese rice bran extracts and colloidal oatmeal is naturally rich in beta glucans and polysaccharides to reduce skin redness and support natural collagen.

How to use it:

Start off with rinsing your face with water, leaving your hands and face wet. Open the polish and pour one tea spoon in your wet hands, massage it together and start rubbing it on your face in a circular motion from forehead to neck. I usually start by applying it to my cheeks because I feel like It works better for me, so you start applying it where it feels right for you but make sure to cover all the areas that need polishing. Once you start the motion you start seeing the formation of the foam and you start feeling the pearl beads and smelling it. I usually massage it in for a minute or two and wash it off. It has luxurious spa feel to it but at the comfort of your home. Overall, it’s a great product, totally in love and will stick to it.

One more thing I learned is that this powder doubles as a cleanser and makes an ideal solution for men to help with ingrown hair.

As you all know by now, I am a sucker for pretty packaging. The packaging for TATCH is just perfect. What I like the most is the note that comes with every product. The note tells you a little about the company, product and the history of how it came about. I find it very interesting.
Hope you enjoyed this review. XOXO

Baby food for 6 to 12 months old

Hello everyone,

I have been trying to make healthy food for my now eight months old and thought I’d share some of the recipes with you.

The first one is Chicken and Vegetable soup, which I blend/puree in the Baby Brezza. It’ a healthy hearty food for babies filled with vegetables and protein that they need. I used Baby Brezza to blend the soup to a consistency that my eight months old can eat. You can watch the rest on the video below. I hope you like it 🙂

I have also added a recipe for a dessert that I give my baby after each meal. It’s a mix of full fat Greek yogurt & peaches.

Full Fat Greek Yogurt & Peaches dessert  (7-8 months old and up)

Do not give non-fat yogurt to babies, since babies need all the fat they can get.

¿Téo? – Uno Dos (feat. Jaden Smith)

Ok I know I have not been posting for a while and I sincerely apologize. I had no idea raising a baby would take so much of my time…

But I promise to be more active on my blog and post as often as I can.

With that being said, I wanted to add another song to my favorite list. I came across of this Ah-Maziing song by accident and after hearing only 10 seconds of the song I was hooked. I can’t get enough of Téo’s voice and who knew Jaden (Will Smith’s son) can rap this good? OBVI I have been living under a rock..

You just have to hear it for yourself if you have not already…

Kneipp and Baby bath

Since I got the green light on starting to bathe my little one I used this potent lavender oil in all his baths, and still  continue on doing so until he gets tired of it.

Let me back up a little. My baby had “Colic” what is colic? well that’s a whole new blog. I had no idea what colic was until I experienced it with my son. He would not stop crying and would have stomachache after each feed (every hour) therefore it made it very difficult for him to fall asleep not to mention myself. So I was desperate to try anything to help him calm down and have him relax a bit.

I received this oil from an office baby shower basket. At first I thought it was for MAMA, but than I read up about it and decided to use it for my little one. I have to admit I had no idea how much I needed to add to the bath water so I went through the first bottle in less than two months! The fact that the bottle didn’t come with a dropper didn’t help either. After I purchased my second bottle I started using a medicine dropper and add only ONE drop (more than enough) in the bath water. we are well in the third month now and the bottle is still half full. Yay!

I highly recommend this oil. It’s the best and most potent that’s out there and it smells great. I have also used some other oils for my little ones colic. I will write another blog on everything that has helped both of us thus far.

XOXO

Man O To

As always I have Pandora on my new Alexa trying to do multiple things around the house, and I hear a beat that makes me stops everything.

“Alexa Volume UP” yep curious and excited I hear a beautiful beat with Farsi lyrics and old school Persian song but it was clearly it was a remix.

I had to find out who and what it was….
