Quick Update


Hey Y’all!! Goodness, it has been a HOT MINUTE since I’ve wrote a blog post about my personal life!! When I first started this journey almost every single post had a little life update and I really miss doing those!! I just spent some time reading through old posts and each one seriously had me grinning from ear to ear. It’s crazy how much we forget the little things!!! A few of my favorites are Jack’s birth story, Colorado Road Trip, Roger’s Gardens, and Austin Texas I Love You. So, I’m making it a resolution to write / vlog more this year!

I’m sure many of you follow me on Instagram, I’m sure you’ve seen my stories, where I share life updates, story telling, and announcements on the daily!! Including landing my first investor for the company I started 1 year ago called, Blogger Babes Productions. I won’t get too much into that right now, but let’s just say it has been whirlwind ever since – IN A GREAT WAY!!! The fact that I get to chase my dreams everyday while building a business with good morals and ethics, is seriously the best thing that has ever happened to me (BESIDES JACKSON OF COURSE.) LOL.

I truly started Blogger Babes because I wanted to make the blogging industry less nasty, less competitive, and MORE authentic and genuine. There are more than enough brands, shoot locations, and presets to go around!!! The girl world can be robustly NASTY and COMPETITIVE. Trust me I’ve seen it first hand since I was a young girl, which is probably why I have always had more guy friends haha. I truly don’t understand why we can’t all get along, be honest about our feelings, support each other, and have some fun while doing so! One of my favorite quotes is “HER success is not YOUR failure.” My first 2 years of blogging the opposite of this seemed to be the general stigma that bloggers had toward each other. That HER success is YOUR failure. That other bloggers would be “jealous” of the collaborations other bloggers were receiving. It seemed like no one wanted to share tips, insights, or anything they learned themselves from blogging. ESPECIALLY when it came to a new blogger just starting out looking for guidance from an experienced blogger.

We all start at the beginning. I find it absolutely insane to not share tips and tricks with other bloggers, to not want to hangout with another blogger because her following isn’t as high as yours, OR to just straight up think your better than someone else because of your following. I believe bloggers should surround themselves with people who add value to their life, who challenge them to be greater than they were yesterday, and who sprinkle a little magic into their existence. Life isn’t meant to be done alone, and neither is blogging. Find your tribe and journey freely and LOYALLY together.

Another favorite quote of mine:
LESSON OF TIME- KARMA
When a bird is alive it eats ants. When the bird is dead, ants eat the bird. Time and circumstances can change at any time. Don’t devalue or hurt anyone in life. You may be powerful today, but remember time is more powerful than you. One tree makes a million matches, only 1 match needed to burn a million trees. SO BE GOOD AND DO GOOD ALWAYS.

I kinda went on a tangent there haha. ANYWAY, Jackson is doing amazing!!! He is growing into the most astonishing human being. His whit, goofiness, insane amount of energy, and pure heart keeps me on my toes. Jack is seriously SO SMART!!! He is saying full sentences, remembering things that happened the day before, and can even count to five. Spending time and bonding with him is my all time favorite thing to do!! I’ve been struggling with the amount of time I have to spend away from him to build Blogger Babes, and keep my blog up and running. Starting a business is seriously no joke. And If I’m being honest, which I always am, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I majored in Kinesiology Athletic Medicine at the University of Texas in San Antonio, and took maybe 1 business class during my freshman year. I definitely know less about business than the average business owner, but I’m reading and educating myself everyday! Everything I’m doing right now is so I can have control of my own life and schedule, and to be able to spend more time with my Jack!! I have never been more driven to do anything in my entire life!!!!

This post got way longer than I expected haha! I have more to share and I want to fill y’all in on Newchella, but I will save that for the next post!! Thanks for stopping by and happy new year! 🙂

The Little Red Dress You NEED For The Holiday’s

This little red dress is SO PERFECT for the holidays!!! I literally can’t get over how perfect it is LOL. It’s from my new favorite brand at Target called Wild Fable. I seriously want just about everything they’ve been putting on the shelves, and I can’t pass on the super low prices for the high quality. This dress was only $18 and I love that you can style it so many different ways. I feel like it would look really cute with a white long sleeve turtle neck underneath and some white booties! You could also pair it with over the knee boots, a leather jacket, and a slick high pony. I could seriously go on for ever y’all! I guess one could say I love fashion haha. 

It is a must to get pictures at a Christmas tree farm during this time of year. So I picked Jackson up a red sweater from Target of course, and headed to Johnson Brother’s farm with some of the SoCal Blogger Babes! Those pictures will be up next with a Babe Gift Guide! Jack’s sweater is seriously SO cute and really thick. He looked like such a little man in it…totally melted my heart.

One of my all time favorite earrings brands is Sugarfix by Baublebar. They seriously have the CUTEST earrings, and again at affordable prices. I picked up this classic pair from my local Target recently, and they also have them online! My shoes are old but I found a similar pair that I honestly think are cuter than the pair I own. I love the fringe detail, SO CUTE.

If you get this dress, make sure you tag me on IG so I can see how you styled it! Thanks for stopping by! ❤

Mad For Plaid

Plaid Has Officially Made A Come Back

and I’m not complaining one bit!!!! These pants give me all of the retro feels, and I can’t get enough! I paired them with a mustard crop top, white booties, and this adorable white backpack

My pants run a little big, so I would definitely size up!! I’m obsessed with the wide pant legs and the colors. Forever 21 for the win per usual! I also linked a ton of my other favorite plaid pants here! 

I get SO many questions about my old Target booties, and unfortunately they are out of stock! I have been looking for dupes for over a year now, and Forever 21 finally decided to grace us with a pair! YAY!!! Not even kidding y’all, I bought a pair as back up because mine are getting scuffed and what not. 

My backpack is one of my go-to’s and it’s currently on sale! It comes with super cute black fuzzy keychain (which looks cute on other bags too) and is super spacious. I even use it as a mini diaper bag for Jackson sometimes!

Special thanks to Madison Crowley Photography for taking these images! She does an amazing job and gives GREAT direction!!!

Dressing For Fall With Cielo Blue


I’m probably one of the only few people that is happy fall weather hasn’t hit SoCal yet. I seriously HATE the cold and layering my clothes haha. My go-to look is ALWAYS a cute dress, because they are easy to throw on and super comfy! Cielo Blue has a great selection of adorable dresses, many that are perfect for transitioning into fall. Just like this off-the-shoulder long bell sleeve striped little number!! I’m seriously obsessed with how it fits, and the blush and black color combo is so fun for fall. It also comes in a beautiful blue color that I also love! The bell sleeves with the tie details is by far my favorite part of the dress. I’m all about the details, y’all!

I paired this dress with white ankle booties and a black belt to spice it up! If it is colder where you live, you could pair it with black over the knee boots and tights. It would even look adorable with black tights and the white booties. Linked below are few of my other favorite dresses from Cielo Blue!

Thanks for stopping by! ❤

Bedford South Corona

The start of something new always brings great people together, and that is exactly what happened last night at Bedford South Corona with The New Home Co. I attended the VIP Grand Opening of a new residential community in the heart of South Corona and I was totally blown away! Californians are calling Corona the new Orange County and I can totally see why. The views are absolutely incredible with gorgeous hills, and there is so much shopping and incredible places to eat!

Last nights grand opening was one for the books. Bedford South Corona catered the evening with delicious Asian cuisine, had their new Sidecar Bar open, and even had performances. This “retired” real estate agent LOVED touring the new beautiful homes and really really wanted to move her family in immediately! 😉

Bedford South Corona has 9 new model homes, Hudson House, Sidecar Bar, Sunkist Lounge, Pools, an awesome playground and more. Go check it out with the whole family tomorrow, September 22st 10am- 4pm!

Make sure you’re following me on Instagram so you can see my stories for more behind the scenes.

Pampering with Parasilk

Feet are not and never will be “pretty” or “cute” in my mind, they are kinda just there lol.

I’ve always been the girl to run out the door barefoot, walk in the scorching hot sand barefoot, drive barefoot, and the list goes on and on! Over the years my feet are starting to show signs of cracking and sometimes the bottoms are uncomfortably dry. Being a fashion blogger in the HOT summer, I’ve been wearing sandals in my photoshoots more frequently. My feet have been looking super dry in my pictures, and for the first time my feet are not “kinda just there” lol. They are these horrendously ugly things that MUST be cropped out of my picture.

gLOVE Treat® Boots with Soybean Formula Parasilk® Paraffin Wax Treatment – Single use

I’ve been using my new Parasilk Boots to treat my over worked feet and the results are phenomenal!!! I noticed a huge difference in the softness of my feet just after one use. The fact that the treatment takes only 10 minutes and you can do it from the comfort of your own home, just makes it that much BETTER. No professionals needed here!

What are these amazing boots?!

gLOVE Treat Boots with Soybean Formula Parasilk® paraffin wax therapy treatment quickly relieve stiffness and muscle spasms and relax and soothe sore foot muscles and joints by bringing warmth while hydrating, moisturizing and healing dry, cracked heels. They are made with all natural, gluten-free ingredients. Parasilk does not add parabens, sulfates or faux fragrances to any of their products. They are a cruelty-free company, which means their products are not tested on animals. YASSSSS!

These Parasilk boots are more convenient, affordable and sterile than traditional paraffin treatments and their new formula is now even better! It includes pure paraffin wax, organic cold-pressed extra virgin coconut oil, hydrogenated soybean oil, hydrogenated soybean polyglycerides, refined cold-Pressed marula oil, Vitamin E and C15-23 AlkeneParasilk. The perfect formula specially designed to provide a deep moisture for dry, cracked heels.

You can multitask like a BOSS with these boots.

I love that I can treat my feet while getting other things done. Most of the time when I’m using my Parasilk boots I get a lot of blogging work done. I pop the boots in the microwave, get my whole setup going on the couch, and boom I’m ready for the ultimate foot treatment. I’m going to list below all of things you can do while wearing your Parasilk Boots that I can think of off the top of my head:

  • Read a book/magazine
  • Watch tv
  • Cook dinner
  • Take a nap
  • Color
  • Catch up on emails/social media
  • Paint your nails
  • Do your makeup/hair
  • Brush your teeth
  • Ab workouts
  • Hangout with your dog(s)

The list could go on forever but I think I will stop there haha. I also use the gLOVE Treat® Mitts with Soybean Formula Parasilk® Paraffin Wax Treatment – Single Use, which I love. I can’t really do much while I do this treatment, so I usually use the time to relax, meditate, or watch a little bit of TV.

Parasilk’s new single use gloves, mitts, and booties are currently 50% off and only cost $10 for a limited time. WHAT A STEAL!!! Click here to start shopping. Thanks for stopping by!
