Getting Fit with The P.Ball

Summer is just around the corner and body confidence comes hand in hand with wearing less clothes for several months, and bikinis by the pool / beach.  My thighs and bum have always been my number one insecurity on my body. If I gain any weight it will go straight there, and when I was pregnant it is where I gained most of my weight (besides in my belly obviously haha.) When I heard that the P.Ball from P.volve lifts your butt, tones your thighs, and defines your lower abs, I knew I had to get my hands on it!

The P.ball is super portable and light, which is essential for a mom on the go like me. Placing it in the proper position for exercise is very simple and there are a ton of instructional videos and pictures here on their website. This ball is not your average exercise ball. It is unlike anything else on the market. Its elastic band holds the ball up high between the thighs to activate hard-to-reach muscles in your core, gluten, and thighs, for amazing tone and definition. I promise you will feel the burn after just one workout!

My favorite part is that your can stream workouts created exclusively for the P.Ball anytime, anywhere. You have access to DOZENS of workouts that use the P.ball to tone and define your entire body, from arms to abs, and of course, your butt! With new workouts added weekly, you will never get bored with the same selection. Find a work out you absolutely love? You can archive it in your workout library! How cool is that?! Your P.volve membership even includes a personalized feature to track your data and evolution of your workouts, a workout calendar to keep you on track, and motivating workout reminders. So awesome!

The P.ball really does it ALL and comes with everything you need to get started, including a pump to inflate the ball and add air over time. I’ve never seen a more versatile and portable piece of workout equipment in my life. I highly recommend giving the P.ball a try and see your body transform, just in time for summer!

Staying Safe With Cybex

Being a mother is my favorite part about myself. I stumbled upon motherhood at a young age of 24 and I have never looked back! I absolutely love being Jackson’s mom. The one thing I have not liked about being a mother is the constant worrying if my baby boy is always going to be protected. Car accidents happen every day, so it’s important to make sure your child is properly buckled and in a safe carseat.

We are so thankful to have the Cybex Sirona M Sensorsafe 2.0 Convertible Car Seat. This is the holy grail of car seats, y’all! We are always on the go and this seat takes away the worry of his safety. It is super easy to install, not too heavy, and even has safety technology in the chest piece that sends your phone alerts. The Cyber Sirona M comes with a vehicle receiver that is quick to insert and once inserted, your phone will start receiving alerts for things like the chest clip being removed, if the back seat is too warm or too cold, and if a child has been seated for too long. How amazing is that?! I know we have all seen the stories on the news of parents leaving a child in the car and I used to think “That would NEVER be me!” Now that I’m fully embraced into motherhood with a toddler tornado, I can now see how anything can happened and not one single person on this planet is perfect (yup even mothers!!)

We still rear-face Jackson in carseat even though he’s above the legal weight of 22 pounds. This highly reduces the risk of injury in a head-on collision. Since 59% of accidents are head-on collisions, CYBEX recommends transporting children in a rear-facing position for as long as possible, preferably up to 4 years old or 40 lbs. In a head-on collision, a rear-facing seat distributes the strong front-impact forces across the seat’s back, significantly reducing the strain on the child’s neck and head.

The energy absorbing shell helps reduce the impact forces felt by the child in a collision and is also extremely comfy for Jack. The CYBEX also comes with a L.S.P system (Individually adjustable Linear Side Impact Protection System.) The adjustable linear side-impact protection (L.S.P. System) absorbs the force of a side-impact collision at a very early stage. Whether rearward or forward-facing, the CYBEX Sirona M with SensorSafe 2.0 features an adjustable Linear Side-impact Protection system (L.S.P.), increasing the level of safety in case of a side-impact collision. The L.S.P. system can be individually adjusted on the door facing side of the car seat and can absorb up to 25% more impact forces in a side-impact collision in combination with the head and shoulder protectors. I love how CYBEX has thought every safety detail on this seat.

A few of my other favorite features on the CYBEX are the removable cup holder you can place on either side and put in the dishwasher as well as the magnetic belt holders. These seriously make it a billion times easier getting Jackson in the seat. He would always pull them underneath him no matter how hard I tried to move them out of the way. By far one of my favorite features!

Curling My Hair with Bombay

When it comes to applying heat to your hair, you want to make sure that you don’t leave your hair damaged. I have been curling my hair for the last 8 years and I can notice a difference when I use someone else’s iron that has no protection with too high of a base temperature. That is why I love Bombay’s 25mm Gold Curling Wand without the clamp! The 100% pure titanium barrel in GOLD paired with negative ion technology allows for frizz free long-lasting curls with an unbeatable shine. I love the way my curls turn out and that they actually last regardless of the weather!

This Bombay curling iron radiates infrared heat which is a healthier way to heat your hair! I’m overall really impressed by the quality of this curling iron for the price and the one year limited warranty! Use code “SHELBY30” for 30% off ALL Bombay hair styling tools and FREE shipping to save even more!

My secret tip to getting the perfect curls around your face is to pull the front part of your hair from both sides directly up and roll the hair back towards your scalp. Hold for about 10 seconds, release, and let the curls fall around your face. I promise I will do a video tutorial once my YouTube channel is live! ❤

New Year, new me and I’m determined to stay consistent in taking my daily vitamins! Especially when it comes to my new SugarBearHair Vitamins!

Happy December 1st!! Who else is excited for ALL things Christmas?!?! This is Jack’s 1st real Christmas in my mind, since he was only three months old last year!! He is already loving all of the decor and the lights SO much. It is seriously the cutest thing ever!!!

I’m obsessed with over-all dresses this season, especially this one from Forever 21! The color is perfect, the fabric is thick, and it has pockets!! You can adjust the straps, so this means you can adjust the length of the dress. How awesome is that?! You can style this dress SO many different ways. I decided to go with an off-the-shoulder striped top and black booties. I classic combination I feel you can never go wrong with! What are some of your favorite fashion combinations?

The Sweetest Sweater

SCBBTheStrawOC-0238


SWEATER: Shein

JEANS: STS Blue


How stinking adorable is this sweater from Shein?! I’m seriously in love with it!! The pearls are my favorite part, of course, but the color and statement sleeves really add the finishing touches! The thickness is also perfect in my mind. Not too thin, but thick enough to keep you warm. This is definitely one of those sweaters that you wouldn’t want to add a jacket to! Shein still has their cyber Monday deals going on, so make sure you shop while the deal are hot.

How amazinggggg is this two-piece set from The Wearhouse?! I stumbled upon this heavenly boutique a couple of months ago at Pacific City in Huntington Beach. They originated in my hometown, Houston, Texas and are new to Pacific City.  The Wearhouse seriously has the most adorable clothes and accessories! Their staff is SO sweet and helpful and the decor gives a blogger like me so much inspiration. I love finding beautiful one-of-a-kind pieces like this one. They are worth every penny!

I personally believe that you can wear ANYTHING you want, when you want! Forget the rules. If you like it, wear it. For myself personally, when I wear a summer-ish or floral print in the fall or winter, I like to keep the color tones dark like these! It is so fun to spice up the colder months with fun prints. Comment your favorite print that you like to wear in the fall/winter months!
