Hooray New Baby

Now that I am well into the 3rd Trimester, it is getting very real! Only about 9 weeks left until the little one gets here. I am trying to soak up as much information and watch as many Youtube videos as possible to prep myself for the big day. A few of my friends are also expecting and as you know, baby shower gifts are the best!

Most of the time, I will stick to the registry but for some of my friends, I wanted to get them something that they would actually use and remember. With so many digital apps and photos, there is definitely a bit of a ‘lost art’ when it comes to it written items.

Hooray New Baby!

“How few hours of sleep did you get the first week after your baby came home? Was your baby’s first Christmas a wrapping paper and sugar high–filled delight, or a toppled-over-tree and broken-ornament nightmare?  The first 12 months of a baby’s life are precious and life-affirming—if you manage to remember them through the sleep deprivation, anxiety, and hours of advice everyone you’ve ever met wants to give you.”

Thankfully, HOORAY NEW BABY! (Rock Point Publishers / September 11, 2018 / US $24.99) is here to help you record the true story of your baby’s important first year, so memories are never fuzzy. This baby book goes from being an exercise in maintaining your sanity to a sentimental keepsake of frank, sweet observations about that special first year of your baby’s life as you fill its pages.

This baby book is so cute and has colorful pages, illustrations and makes it so much fun for first time moms to fill out.  You can buy it directly from here!

Easy Halloween Costumes for the Dogs by Petkrewe

PetKrewe has so many cute costumes on their website and for dogs of all sizes

Even though it is a fun night for humans and kids, some dogs can get pretty freaked out during Halloween. Strange costumes, sounds and smells might make the dogs bark and get scared. So just to prepare your dog, here are some of the my tips for how to get your dog ready for Halloween!

  1. Let your dog wear the costume a few times before the actual date. You can practice wearing it to make sure it is safe, not too hot and okay for your dog. Give her some treats and takes some fun pics. Take if off after a few minutes and then try for longer next time.
  2. Be careful of treats! Chocolate is fatal to dogs and too much sugar can also make them crazy hyper. Be careful of candies on the ground, on the table, wrappers, and lollipop sticks that can be a choking hazard.
  3. Have fun and be safe! If your dog is scared, tired or stressed – it might bark or bite. Don’t push your dog to the limit and let them have a short and fun time during Halloween.

Men’s Fashion: Corbata Handcrafted Cotton Skinny Ties

Corbata is the Spanish word for ties! As the trend of ath-leisure and casualization of work places is more prevalent than ever, there is still a time and place for a gorgeous tie. Corbata is simple and stunning ties for just that reason! The Sunday is one of my personal favorites on the website. I gifted this to my husband for his birthday because this is exactly what he needed. Just a break from his hectic travel and work schedule.
The day of rest. Some choose to worship, some choose to brunch, and some choose to cheer their team to victory. You know what goes well with all those Sunday activities? A heavy dose of confidence. Put The Sunday tie on and you’ll see what we mean.
Sunday Quote
“…easy like Sunday morning.” – Lionel Richie
“At Corbata, our mission is to provide handcrafted, high-quality ties that make people feel like the best version of themselves. Our hope is to spread the confidence needed to turn heads, make powerful impressions, and to do good. Our San Fransisco inspired ties are custom made with a keen attention to detail. We want to help our friends kick butt and look good doing it.”
If you like funky designs, these florals called the “Weekdays” is just perfect. They are different enough to stand out but very wearable. Having a Corbata tie is like having an understated conversation starter to show that you have flavor and style!
Corbata was launched in June 2018 by Jeff Corrigan, Matt Miles, and Sheldon Mills. We currently have 10 styles available on our website and plan to expand the selection as the company grows. There are currently two lines of ties: the Days of the Week line and the San Francisco line. The company offers discounts for bulk orders for weddings are other events.
