Nursery and more….

Here are just a few things that I purchased on line for the nursery and the baby. 

 The curtains are from Pottery Barn, I just fell in love with them and I plan to decorate his nursery around these curtains. They keep the outside noise level down and they are perfect for nap time during the middle of the day when the sun is at its peak.  They also don’t look strictly for a nursery which is a good thing because I can use these for at least 5 more years to come as he grows into a little boy. The only thing is that I cannot find a decent navy blue and white crib bedding set under $200 online anywhere.

His nursery has white furniture, so I chose this white changing table. Since the curtains are dark blue, white furniture is going to balance out the color perfectly. 
The Diaper Genie II.  A friend of mine swears by this one to keep the odor at ease.
There’s so many nipple creams out there but I chose to try this one out first. It’s only 2 oz. so its not a big deal if it doesn’t work. What are your recommendations?

I wanted to get your opinion on the breast pumps. I ended up getting the one shown above because it had great reviews and it was only $38 but I also saw other pumping systems for $200. Huge price difference so I’m hoping it works just as well.

I sat in one of these a few weeks back and it HAS to be the most comfortable chair ever. Perfect for breast-feeding and rocking my baby to sleep.

My friends little boy uses the Vulli Sophie Giraffe teether.  She told me that this is the only teether that he loves because it completely takes any discomfort from his growing teeth. 

Last but not least, this was the highest rated changing pad at Amazon with the perfect contour and strap to keep the baby safe. It’s also waterproof so it great if you have a boy because you can wipe of his pee with out damaging the changing pad. 

Izek’s Baby Shower

My “twin” sister Ivette. 
Everyone says we look alike. I see it sometimes. Anyway, I  don’t think you guys have met her before but here she is. I’ve never been so close to anyone like her. She’s the only person who knows all my secrets and I trust her with everything. I love her. She’s my other half. 

Hey  dolls!
Remember I tweeted yesterday morning that I had a gut feeling that I was going to have a surprise baby shower? Well guess what? I did!! There is just no deceiving me ha ha. The baby shower was held at my parents house which is about 45 minutes away from where Jesse and I live. On the way there I was trying to trick Jesse into telling me by fibbing and saying that my sister told me the “truth” but he didn’t fall for it. LOL  Anyway, my family and friends were all there and I was extremely happy because it was all about Izek. He got so much attention. Wendy and Jesse took tons of pictures and I want to give them all the credit for documenting the party J because I will always have these pictures to look back on.
If you were wondering what I was wearing, I wore a Forever 21 ruffled top because it’s the most flattering top I own for these last few weeks were my tummy is at its largest.  I paired it with a Forever 21 jacket, Target tights (with the elastic cut off), and my new favorite boots by Matiko. As far as accessories, I wore my gold Hamsa necklace and satin Hamsa bracelet along with a Merona for Target black watch and my Louis Vuitton speedy 30.
Pregnancy Update:
- 9 Months pregnant! 36 weeks as of today (1 more month to go!!!).
- Passed my 4 hour glucose test ( I knew I was, there’s no way I was going to have diabetes).
- I do not have Cystic Fibrosis (I only carry the gene)
- Jesse does not have the Cystic Fibrosis gene or the disease .
- Trying to be more active now days but I’m SUPER tired, all I want to do is lay down and sleep.
-Total weight gain is 27lbs (I love every pound…and so does the hubby. I’m his cute little fat whale.)
- No stretch marks (even though every one swore I was going to get them by my sixth month) thanks to my Mama Mio lotion and oil
- Excited and ready to bring my little baby into this world with a natural delivery. Si Dios quiere.
Oh and guess what??!!!
Jesse and I finally got a house! We are so exited because Izek gets to have his own nursery.  I’m having so much fun putting ideas together for his room.
Anyway, all I did today was pack up  a few things (I’m taking it real slow and not picking up heavy things) and hopefully by the end of this week we are all packed up and ready to move.  Tomorrow were going over to the house to paint a few rooms because I want to make sure the house doesn’t smell like paint by the time Izek gets here. Aside from that,  I’m also very happy because I still get to turn one of the bedrooms into my closet and  I also get to have another room in which I’m going to turn it into an office. Ugh, I’m just too exited but I will show you guys pictures of the house in a future post.
Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed the pictures.

Whats In My Makeup Bag?

Hey guys! Here’s a peek inside my makeup bag. These are all products I pretty much live on day to day.

New Goodies from HauteLook

A lot of you know I’m a huge fan of a great sale which is why I love Hautelook so much. You can get great designer deals for an awesome price (hubby is secretly a fan too).
I love Matiko, I actually found out about this brand via HauteLook
The first leather booties are great from class since they have an invisible platform and they have an awesome cut which no other boots I own have.
 The other laced up booties are also great to give any outfit an instant edge. I love how they lace ALL the way up. I might wear these this Saturday. 
Last but not least is my new Invicta watch. I love menswear and when it comes to accessories such as watches, I’m all over them. A nice chunky gold watch to add to my collection is all I needed.

Since Jesse surprised me with a lens and a camera bag for my SLR, I decided to test it out this morning
in Hollywood. Today was the first day of the week that the sun finally came out. It was gorgeous out.
