Little Spoon - Baby Food Delivery Service

Little spoon baby food delivery service

Little Mama is at the age for solid foods and it has been fun making her food from scratch.  It hasn't been as difficult as I thought it would be, I am able to come home and whip up a batch of pureed peas or sweet potato.  I just do this along with whatever I am cooking for dinner for me and my husband.  On the days when I am busy, he is usually able to make her pureed food for her instead.  But then there are those days, when we both get home and the last thing on our mind is making dinner.  That's when we end up ordering in, but you can't find baby food on any restaurants menu.  This is where Little Spoon comes in to save the day!  This baby food delivery service relieve us from the stress of making sure baby Chloé is fed and fed healthy.    

Little Spoon is a new baby food delivery service that delivers freshly made food to customers on a bi-weekly basis.  Making sure that you are feeding your baby healthy food can be difficult unless you are making it yourself constantly.  Knowing that there is an option to help make life easier for this working mom has been instrumental.  Little Spoon uses fresh foods and a technique called high-pressure processing to lock in the nutrients without having to use additives or preservatives.  This is a better alternative that those jarred baby foods you find in the grocery store that have been there sometimes longer than the age of your baby.  

Little Spoon sends different flavors specific to your baby and they make great combinations as well.  Chloé enjoyed each option that we gave her.  Attached to each container is a small spoon that was actually easier to feed her with than the baby spoons I purchased.  Luckily, she was pleasantly pleased with these and I was very happy with having this as an option for a healthy baby food option.  This delivery service is a great idea and perfect for those who want to know exactly what they are feeding their baby.  My husband and I greatly recommend this delivery service!

7 Charming Sisters - Chandelier Earrings

7 Charming Sisters chandelier earrings

Statement earrings are everywhere this summer! You can find tassel earrings, drop pompoms to elegant chandelier earrings. I am usually wearing smaller earrings but have taken to this trend, surprisingly. They are extremely fun and pair well with another trend this season, the off the shoulder look. One way to dress up an off the shoulder dress would be to add these chandelier earrings from 7 Charming Sisters. These vintage crystal earrings jazz up my dress.  It takes this dress from brunch party to nighttime cocktails. These are extravagant and gorgeous and everyone will think you paid an outrageous price. They are absolutely beautiful at an incredible price.

In addition to adding charm to an off the shoulder dress, these can easily be worn with a top and jeans or a little black dress.  Versatile and stunning, you can spruce up any summer outfit with these chic and affordable earrings from 7 Charming Sisters.

Cancun

 

This past June was a busy one for me and I've been a bit behind with my posting but finally catching up.  I still have more to fill you in about our vacation in Cancun.  We enjoyed the sun, the sand, and the time spent with friends.   We went down for a wedding and stayed at the resort where the wedding was being held.  It was nice to not have to worry about heading out for dinner and instead having everything right there on the premises.  We stayed at Finest Playa Mujeres and the rooms were spectacular.  Each room is a suite with a couch, Jacuzzi and large patio with daybeds.  It was an all inclusive resort so there was also a fully stacked fridge with both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.  You really didn't need to leave the room especially since there was 24 hour room service but you definitely wanted to enjoy the various restaurants they had on site.  We dined at a steak restaurant one night and had traditional Mexican cuisine the next.  The service was fantastic and wished we could have stayed longer.  

The second day we were there, we spent all day on the beach.  The sun was shining and the breeze kept us cool.  The sand is soft and the water was various shades of blue.  When we weren't on the sand, we enjoyed the pool that was right in front of our room.  There were so many pools that you never felt crowded.  In addition, there is a children play area that includes a separate water feature with slides.  There were bars spread throughout and juice bars as well where we enjoyed fresh coconut water.    This was little Chloé's first international trip and she loved being out in the sunshine.  She is definitely a beach baby.  She also enjoyed the slides and the children's water area.  Since we took her down to Miami, we have gotten better already with traveling with a baby.  My post on traveling with a baby is coming soon.

The last day we were there, we spent it at the pool and then headed off to the wedding.  The venue was beautiful and was more than I would have ever expected at a destination wedding.  It was enchanting.  Our time in Cancun was so enjoyable and relaxing, I highly recommend a vacation there even with small children.

Spent most of my time in light tops and shorts.  My tote bag doubled as a beach bag and baby bag, utilizing Tote Savvy inserts.  Sunbluck, shades and these cute blue espadrilles were my mainstay the entire time.

7 Charming Sisters - Conquer the World Necklace

yellow lace dress summer wedding attire

Last week my family headed to Cancun for a friend's wedding.  The weather was perfect, the venue was stunning, and the couple was beyond happy.  It was such a beautiful scene for a lovely event.  I hadn't been to a beach wedding in a very long time so definitely needed to find something to wear.  Since it was going to be in sunny Cancun, I wanted to wear something light to stay cool in the heat.  I wanted the dress to be simple yet formal, something bold yet demure.  I came across this yellow dress and knew I had the perfect necklace to make this outfit complete.  

I love wearing yellow and gold is the best compliment to it.  This floral lace overlay dress is soft and feminine.  his statement necklace from 7 Charming Sisters took this dress to the next level.  I love to accessorize and have fun with my jewelry and this necklace does not disappoint.  First of all, the name of this is "Conquer the World" necklace.  How can you not feel amazing wearing this, which I did.  The addition of this crystal, drop collar necklace took this dress from a pretty, beach wedding dress to a stunning, formal beach wedding attire!

The quality and feel of this necklace is superb and by looking at it, one would think that I paid an arm and a leg for it.  Luckily, 7 Charming Sisters knows that women want to be able to enjoy stylish, fashionable pieces at affordable prices.  This gorgeous necklace is only $47!  When I look good, I feel good and this necklace makes me feel good in so many ways.  First, its high quality and stunning and secondly, I didn't pay an enormous price tag for it.  Affordable fashion is important to me and with having a little one now, I am even more inclined to be budget savvy.  I'm a mom who wants to enjoy traveling and look good while saving money!  You can too, with promo code, 'Asto20', enjoy 20% off your purchase of regular priced merchandise on the 7 Charming Sisters site.  If you are looking for that piece to jazz up that special dress you plan on wearing this summer, you will, without a doubt, find what you are looking for on their site.  Their selection is eclectic and pleasing to everyone's style.  Hope you find that perfect piece!
