Peace of Mind for Moms

Peace of mind for a mom :

As a mother, a new mother, peace of mind and balance is probably one of the things I am personally struggling with until today. I'm sure other moms feel the same way I feel, like the only one trying to find balance/quiet time. 

My little family just moved into a new home and I'm loving it! Work is kind of slow but I use that as an opportunity to create other things in my life which build towards the future. Also using this as time to spend with Peace. Recently I became a vegan ( which I will be sharing in a separate post) but I went vegan to tap into a higher power of myself within myself. I was seeking clarity. Clarity for steps towards my future but proper, diligent steps. 

With that being said, I notice my life shifting, everything is shifting. It is sometimes really crazy to think about but I know it is for a great reason. Not only are the people in my life shifting, but work and my aspirations are shifting drastically. I am extremely creative, which is a blessing and a curse. Sometimes too creative that it drives me crazy lol. With all of these shifts going on in my life I started to feel a bit loopy(crazy). I frantically organized the house today and finished unpacking the last couple of boxes so that I could get the vibes going within the new house. 

Oh yea, I forgot to mention, Peace is teething so finding balance seemed almost impossible lol. Like I was saying, I organized the house, lite my candles and nag Champa and told myself to listen to the voice that kept telling me "meditate, be still, don't be hard on yourself, meditate." 

As a mother, it's hard for us to get that quiet time and the chance to turn everything off. So as soon as I put Peace to bed, I turned off the lights quickly and turned on my meditation music and sat in the vibe for 20 minutes. Man oh man, what a weight off my shoulders. Just feeling calm and at Peace. 

I say all of this to encourage us mothers to make sure we are taking care of ourselves. Make sure we make quiet time for ourselves so we can be better parents and we can also have patience for our little ones. Being the best person we can be. Not even the best mother because before we were mothers we were people, our own individual and we can't forget that. We have to make that person so powerful. The world will break you down but God made us women for a reason. We are the back bone. So keep in mind mamas, take time for yourself and turn everything off. Treat yourself to the gift of stillness.


Peace and Blessings

Russell Madness Movie Screening ....

Peace and I recently attended the private screening of "Russell Madness" at FOX Studios!!!! We were able to meet a very talented monkey and dog which were both stars of the movie. One thing I love about the film is the fact that they show the power of loyalty and strength within a family unit. They show unity and teamwork. I think the world is going to really like this movie and I do recommend parents watching this with their kids/family :) You can actually purchase the movie below;

Product Review: Lily-Jade (Diaper bag)

Recently I received an amazing handbag/diaper bag! Meet Lily-Jade! There are several things I love about this bag!

Ok so to start out, I am not a big purse/diaper bag person, BUT I love the fact that Peace and I can share this bag together and still be in style. Helping me save space and not have to bring two bags everywhere we go. That gets annoying ugh lol .... Ok moving on, the POCKETS! Whenever I look for a diaper bag I always look for pockets! This bag is super cool because it has this whole insert that clips in and out of the bag that is filled with pockets. There are at least a dozen pockets on the whole bag, I love it! Great to use for little things so that literally everything in your bag has its place. I use the front portion for my stuff and Peace gets the inside! Oh, did I mention it comes with a handy changing pad? Bomb.Com !!! Thank you so much Lily-Jade ! I recommend this bag to anyone with a baby or soon to be mamas. The quality of the bag is fantastic! Very heavy duty and will last you a while. If you ever want to use it for a purse or carry on bag you have the option of converting it into a  purse just for you mom!

Sitting Still & Silent .....

As a woman, I am growing rapidly. As a mother, artist and human being I am growing very quickly.  I am learning to let my wings open wide and fly. Right now I am at a point of silence. I believe in the power of not speaking but simply sitting still and learning. I know for myself I want to forever grown and be a student to the world and God. I want to soar fearlessly and constantly challenge myself. As some of you know I've decided to do just that. I asked myself the other day "whats next?" Whats a way for me to step it up and challenge myself. I heard God say "go vegan and workout." I also heard him say to stay still and become a student while doing so. I love to feed people around me by inspiring them to choose a healthy happy way of living. I understand that I have to sometimes take time for myself to feel up all the energy I gave out. Meaning, refreshing my mind, body, spirit, so that I am able to come back stronger and better with more wisdom to share. For the month of February I won't be updating my blog because I just need time to gain more insight from the spirit. Gaining wisdom and knowledge from the spirit takes discipline, focus, courage, and I have to keep still. Since having my daughter, well even while I was pregnant, I haven't  had a "sit still" moment. For Christ sakes Beyoncé has "sit still" moments lol. My spirit needs a little rejuvenation and I know I will have AMAZING things for you guys in March. I am going ALL Vegan, detoxing my body completely, working out daily, and spending my free time with my daughter. I will be writing a lot, reading a lot, and being with nature daily. I am really excited and this takes a lot of courage for me to step away but I will be back! Love you guys!!! Thank you for supporting me in my journey... See you in March .....

Fashionable Mom

As a new mom to a 3 month old, I found a love for dressing up. My style has changed a bit and I am loving the new me! This is what I call my “ laid back business” look, perfect for winter! I am wearing a long peacoat from Forever 21 (I recommend getting one size up for comfort around the shoulders.) My shoes are from TopShop, a nice trendy boot to add a touch of “sass” to the outfit. I made sure to wear my FAVORITE high waisted jeans from American Apparel. Love these pants so much especially being that I still have my postpartum tummy it holds it all in so you can stand tall and walk with confidence. Simple white V neck shirt from GAP (extremely comfy) and last but not least, simple dainty necklaces from Forever21. Hope you enjoy!!


Product Review: Uppa Baby Cruz Stroller

Love Love Love this stroller!!!

Being a new mom I had no clue what products were hot and what products were not. I have a mother-in-law who is the bomb at suggesting products. Of course she would tell you her full story of " well, you know I used to own a baby store for 15 years right?" lol she's funny.

This stroller is the Uppa Cruz, super cute and trendy. We have the yellow one which is interchangeable. This stroller can be adjusted to a full bassinet position so your baby is laying flat.  Easy to use button near the head which adjusts so the seat can sit ALL the way up to a high chair position.  just depends on what you prefer or the baby prefers. 

It comes with a super cool UV sun shade, an attachment for the rain as well as to keep bugs out. The basket at the bottom of the stroller is a pretty good size. Rides smoothly for sure! Its extremely light and also very very easy to break down and throw in your car. No hassle at all.

Now, we also have the car seat insert. When Peace is sleeping I usually keep her in the car seat and I take out the stroller base with just attaching the car seat in it. The different parts of the strollers have the options of your baby to face you or look outward. Since Peace is a new baby, I only give her the option to face me until she is a little older. This stroller is good for new borns all the way up to toddlers.

Get out and Celebrate YOU!!! #MommyMonday ......

It took everything out of me not look back this weekend while heading out on a girls trip to Vegas. Sometimes I need to let my hair done and have some fun instead of just working and trying to "figure" out life. Yes, I do too try and figure things out and than snap out of it quickly. So back to my story, I went to Vegas with my girlfriends and I was able to be Felicia again for 24 hrs. It was my first time away from baby Peace and I had to use "power of the mind" for this trip. 

I didn't realize how much I would miss her as well as my fiancé but I did pretty damn good. I also felt free of not worrying about someones diaper change or feeding. I was only in charge of myself and it felt really weird yet good. Peace had daddy daughter time and it was perfect because I was able to let them bond together without me looking over his shoulder to make sure he changed her right. Its important for us to let them bond,  really important.  

Ya know, I think its a necessity ( and I encourage) for moms to consider doing a quick get away with friends or even alone. Step away from your world for just a few days and focus on you and celebrate YOU. We forget to do that as women, and as mothers, I think a lot of women forget to just take care of themselves. We are women, we are powerful and deserve everything attainable and more. Take care of yourself and let your hair down every once in a while to recharge. Life is good, don't forget that, enjoy yourself  !!


Peace and Blessings,

Moms Supporting Moms: Product Review: Ixchel Triangle

This weekend I was introduced to the lovely Tory Jones. She is the owner of Ixchel Triangle ! My goodness her items are the Bomb.Commmmm ! Yepp with all of those "m's" lol !

I received this super trendy diaper/wipe holder and I am so in love. I can finally take out a diaper from my purse in "style" :)What I love about it is I can toss it in my purse when I don't want to take Peaces full diaper bag with me. Also, The quality is amazing, I am a big fan of Guatemala style purses and this was right up my alley. A few fun facts on the purse are:

* Each product takes up to 3-4 weeks to weave due to the intricate design.

* Each bag is signed by the artist it was created by.

* The Mayan people of Guatemala create these bags themselves!

* Each bag purchased supports a family & children's education in Guatemala 

We love Tory and her whole movement! Oh, also, they have FANTASTIC Yoga Mat bags as well as diaper bags !!! 

Thank you Ixchel Triangle :)

MommyMonday Product Review :)

Hi Mamas!! 

This weekend I was able to attend a great Mommy event! I was introduced to some really cool products and I had to make sure I came back to share with my fellow moms!!! All products have links connected to them in case you're interested in purchase. Lets get started :))

First we have "Blue Baby Bum" I recieved two items from this line and I think they are great! The first product is the car seat Blankie. The blanket is light weight but also has a really soft inside so you're able to feel it will keep your little one warm. Sometimes we have to adjust our babies to the temperature of being inside or outside depending on if its cold or warm. The good thing is, this blanket makes it possible for you to roll up at the babies feet without having to worry about "what do I do with this blanket since the baby isn't needing it right now." 

The next product from the same line is the carseat cover. Usually us moms put a blanket over our little ones stroller especially if the baby is new. This cover has a velcro latch so you are able to strap it onto the car seat without worrying about it coming off, or blown off by the wind. This was an issue for me actually so once I saw this product I liked the idea behind it. We go to a lot of outdoor events and Peace falls asleep sometimes so I like to cover her with this and she has her own little cozy space!!
