Early Fall Mini Shoot

August 30, 2017 § 11 Comments

Hellooo,

We had the pleasure of working with Ryan Clark Photography for a mini family shoot. The outfits we wore had been selected from things we already owned in our closet. My dress was bought while I was pregnant with Scarlett. I loved the style and color for a future family shoot. I incorporated the color of my dress to everyones outfits so thats how it turned out into a “early” fall shoot, but honestly it’s no where near fall here in Florida. Scarlett’s outfit had been bought when she was in my tummy and I was surprised it even fit her. Literally fit her so well I doubt she’ll get any use of it for Fall!

Well let me stop the babbling and here are the rest of our family pictures;

 

Thank you so much to Ryan for capturing these moments for us. You can check his feed over on his Instagram @ryanclarkphotograph.

August Pinkblush Favorites

August 23, 2017 § 8 Comments

Hey ladies!

I’m back with a brand I love so much! Pinkblush is a brand I have had the pleasure of featuring on Modern World Momma for quite some time now. They have been with me along the way through both my pregnancies, postpartum and just everyday womanhood. You can literally find anything for any shape/size or point in your life through Pinkblush

I am going to share with you two pieces I have been wearing through this month that I love and feel comfortable in.

The first piece is a high low floral dress with a stretchy V like neckline. I chose this piece because it was short sleeved, flowy, and had an easy accessibility to nurse my little babe. I am wearing a size small.

The material on this dress is so amazingly stretchy. It could be worn through pregnancy and after. It was a breeze to nurse in because the flaps on each side are easy to pull over underneath your breast.

The second piece is a long black overlay skort. This skort looked so different to me because I’ve never seen anything like it. It has a drawstring waistline which is perfect for postpartum! I am wearing a size medium in this but I’m sure I could of gone down to a small if I wanted to. 

I paired this with a grey lingerie looking top that’s highly in style right now with some black wrapped pointy toe flats and a heather grey hat. I recieved so many compliments on this outfit! 

These two items have been worn more than once just for the comfort purpose. Of course anything easy to nurse in is a + for me too! I enjoy styling Pinkblush pieces and being able to share them with you guys.

Until next time ladies! ❤

Dee

Bottle to Cup Training with Nuby

July 27, 2017 § Leave a comment

Hi ya’ll!

I am back sharing with you all my journey through breastfeeding and trying to get this little babe to take at least one bottle! Seriously I never believed anyone when they told me some babes just won’t take a bottle because they rather the boob. Welp Scarlett refuses a bottle from me but if its grandma she’ll take it with no problem.

Scarlett is 8 months now and I’ve started giving her at least 1oz. of water or juice in a sippy cup after each meal to flush everything down. We have been using Nuby’s Natural Touch Bottle to Cup to transition her from its slow flow bottle nipple to the no spill spout. I started introducing her to this bottle a little over 4 months ago and she wasn’t having it! She showed no interest to the nipple at all. At around 6 months I switched it over to the spout and she’s done much better getting the hang of drinking from it with the super easy detachable handles to help her hold on to it.

I carry this cup around in my diaper bag all the time because it holds up to 9oz of liquid which is enough to have for a whole day of being out and about.

Most importantly this bottle to cup is BPA FREE and a great investment since it can be used from 3 months+!

The Nuby Natural Touch Bottle to Cup can be found at Babies R Us.

 Logic Products- All Purpose Cleaner Part 1

May 24, 2017 § Leave a comment

Hello welcome back!

I know I’ve been MIA these last two weeks, but my brother in law is getting married this weekend so I’ve been running around the last couple of weeks trying to get outfits for Scarlett and I and suits for Angelo and my husband since they are apart of the wedding. All through the madness Scarlett has been sick but its all been respiratory and it has been driving me insane because it seems like shes had it for over three weeks now! Anywho, I thought this would be the  perfect timing to talk about a natural based product I have been using to disinfect after the kiddos and the house in general.

First, lets back track a bit and let me tell you why I DON’T use BLEACH in my house for cleaning purposes.

  1. It triggers my migraines
  2. I hate the smell
  3. The fumes it produces such as ammonia 
  4. Gives me itchy hands; irritates my skin

All of these factors and others that I’m sure you could Google and read upon are just some as to why I don’t ever use bleach to clean up at home. I try to find alternatives to safer more natural products and thats where Logic Products All Purpose Cleaner comes in. I’ve been using this product non stop lately mainly because of Scarlett being sick. I’ve been wiping everything down that she touches or that anyone touches so that Angelo won’t catch anything. I don’t need two kids sick now!

This All Purpose Cleaner comes in two different sents; Citrus Grove and Jasmine Mist. They both smell amazing but I’ve been using each bottle for different purposes around the house. Today I’ll touch bases on Citrus Grove. This sent is exactly what it sounds like its a natural therapeutic grapefruit oil aroma. Once you spray some of this goodness on your counters it is safe to say there are no toxic residue left floating around for your family to inhale. Also, it cleans very well around the house on every surface except wood. I’ve been using the All Purpose Cleaner to wipe down/disinfect all of the kids toys, furniture and food spills.

When it’s time to feed Scarlett I always grab a few things to have on hand so I don’t have to walk away from her and grab them later. Those things consist of her food, spoon, sippy cup, wipes, paper towel/cloth, and cleaning solution to clean up after her spills and eating chair. I feel safe using this all natural plant based product on her baby things for the simple fact that I don’t worry that if she places them in her mouth after cleaning there are no harmful ingredients that will harm her in any way. Just the thought of cleaning something with bleach and then having her place it right back in her mouth makes me cringe! 

Logic Products all Natural HomeLogic products are phthalate free, Ammonia free, formaldehyde free, chlorine free, bleach free, petroleum free, DEA & PEG free, paraben free, nonylphenol ethoxylate free, triclosan free methylisothiazolinone & benzisothiazolinone free, TEA free, and do not contain artificial colors or fragrances. They are cruelty free and vegan free as well!

I’ll be closing up my overall review on a seperate post next week sharing another way I like to use these products focusing on the sent Jasmine Mist!

Teething with Nuby

May 11, 2017 § Leave a comment

Hi mamas, it’s been a hectic couple of days but here we are!

So our little diva has been full blown teething since about 4 months. It got worse over time with night fevers and constant diarrhea. She would cry over her sore gums and try to put anything in her mouth to soothe her. 

For the last month I have been using the Nuby Adult Teethable Necklaces. They are fashionable, made of 100% silicone, and BPA free. The necklaces themselves are truly amazing!

My current fashion pieces to wear around my neck have been bandannas, string necklaces and jewelry. Those are always the first things Scarlett decides to put in her mouth. Now, I always choose a teething necklace according to my outfit and that she can enjoy. The teething necklaces provide stimulation to her gums and emerging teeth.

I can honestly say getting dressed in the morning has been an ease! I would spend hours contemplating on what to wear, getting accessories put together and having Scarlett on the back borner thinking to myself “will she pull on this”, “will she put this in her mouth and get cut”, but now I just grab a teething necklace and layer it on with the rest of my jewelry that day. I’ve had other women ask me where I bought the necklace around my neck and become in awe when I mention its a teether for the little gal. So yes, they are that fashionable!

The teething necklaces silicone beads are a perfect size for small little hands to easily grab and get into their mouths. Each necklace is different but there are different styles for everyones liking. They come in various colors as well. The silicone is very soft and easy to clean. I simply run it through running water with mild soap and let air dry.

Now head on over to my Instagram @deearivett give us a follow if you haven’t and enter our GIVEAWAY with @NubyUSA for a chance to win an Adult Teething Necklace of your choice!

You can shop the Nuby Adult Teethable Necklaces at BabiesRUs and Target.

Morning routine 

April 11, 2017 § Leave a comment

Hey guys!

Lets talk Shea! My morning routine once Scarlett and Angelo wake up consist of trying to get them fed and bathed. Shea Moisture has been my all time favorite since when Angelo started to react upon using Johnson & Johnson and developing minor eczema. I tried everything and Shea Moisture was MY solution! 

I am a big time lover of shea butter and coca butter, so anything with any of those ingredients is a must for me. Our morning routine currently consist of using the Shea Moisture Raw Shea Chamomile & Argan Oil Wash & Shampoo along with the Raw Shea Chamomile & Argan Oil Baby Lotion. I start off with setting up over at the sink with everything I need and placing Scarlett’s blooming bath running with luke warm water.

Once the temperature is right I place her in and let her wiggle her toes into the water and start soaking her with a cloth towel. She loves to just sit in the water and play! Shea has changed their bottles and now use a quicker and easier foam pump to dispense the Wash & Shampoo, which I love so much better! 

I’ll use the cloth towel and pump about 2-3 pumps out. I’ll wash her front and back then her hair and rince her off. Once she’s all dried up I start applying the Raw Shea Chamomile & Argan Oil Baby Lotion. Lastly, I massage this all over her body and it just smells soo good! 

What I personally love about these products are listed below;

  1. Smell of shea 
  2. Soft skin
  3. Moisturized skin
  4. Easiness of the foam bottle

Shea Moistures promise is to provide products that are paraben, phthalates, paraffin, mineral oil, DEA, petroleum, formaldehyde, propylene, sulfate, and cruelty free. They are a family owned and operated buisness certified organic, natural and fair trade ingredients. 

We use Shea on a daily at our home and it has been a staple for the past 4 years. You can find these products at Target, Babies R Us, and on their website www.sheamoisture.com.

Xox,

Dee ❤

Nuby March Series/Week 3: Bath Crayons

March 27, 2017 § Leave a comment

Helloo, welcome back!

We have reached our last week of the Nuby March Series! This last product Angelo had quite some fun during bath time. The Nuby Bath Crayons come in a set of 5 fun and vibrant colors. They are easy to work with, with just a push of a button to slide up for more coloring or slide down when completely finish. They definitely help stimulate your little humans brain and get those juices flowing.

Angelo had an awesome time coloring and drawing away, but to be quite honest these weren’t my favorite. The plastic handle doesn’t hold the crayon that well in place which made the crayon slip out plenty of times. In order for the crayons to show their true color they have to be wet a few times. Not a big deal but just a heads up! Regardless of them not being my favorite Angelo still enjoyed bath time with them. Heck he’s a kid what does he care!! haha

Overall it easily washes off smooth surfaces for easy clean up and they are BPA free. Great for ages 3+ years and can be found at Amazon for purchase.

Be sure to follow Nuby for upcoming products through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest.
