Monthly Baby Photoshoot In A Box – Baby Booth Box Unboxing And Review

Let me tell you about Baby Booth Box

So if you know me at all you would’ve noticed I like taking pictures of my kids.

I always wanted to do the whole monthly photo shoot thing with my babies. When my first was born I didn’t even know about keepsake photos. I was just trying to keep myself awake and my child alive.

By the time my second was born I had seen countless internet moms do their own version of monthly keepsake photos and I wanted to do the same. I tried to keep things simple and purchased props and outfits.  At first I got through  without too many issues but when I got to month 4 and 5 I was running out of ideas and the cost of each photo shoot was starting to get expensive. I spent a lot of time planning out themes, looking for places to buy props and outfits and spending a lot of time and energy on the photo shoot itself.

I Just got Baby Booth Box. Every month they send out brand new themed and designed photo shoots for my baby. You get everything you need to set up the photo shoot and a FREE milestone blanket with your first box!!! They also put a gift in there for mom every month. you want to order, you can use my code BABY45 for 25% off. Or if you know someone having a baby, buy them a gift card or a subscription!

Introducing Baby Booth Box

Baby Booth Box is a month to month subscription box that sends you themed photo shoot props for your growing baby.

Say goodbye to wasting time trying to plan baby photo shoots! Purchase everything one by one for your DIY photo shoots? No, Thanks. I’d rather have a simple, no hassle and affordable Baby Booth Box.

This would make such a cute gift for any mom-to-be in your life! I found having photo shoot sessions with my babies to be a great way to bond and play together. Although at moments it can get a little frustrating, I loved having these moments with my little ones.

What I got in my box

This months box included:

  • Shoes
  • Pants (shorts/bloomers)
  • Suspenders
  • Bow Tie
  • Paper decor/props
  • A special gift for mom (cat ear hair band)

I absolutely loved my box. The props were of good quality and things that I can definitely reuse. It was so much fun opening my Baby Booth Box and finding all the cute goodies inside. The thing I liked most about this was the experience! Being able to set up, get my baby dressed up and taking photos (with the help of my other kids too). We had so much fun together and the final result is something I was cherish forever. Thank You Baby Booth Box!

Disclaimer: Yes, this Baby Booth Box was complimentary but all opinions are my own! Although subscribing myself is a little late (my baby is grown up) I am definitely thinking of purchasing this for a friend or family member who is expecting. 

Chewy And Sweet Nut Seed Fruit Squares Raw Bar Snack Recipe

Chewy And Sweet Nut Seed Fruit Squares Raw Squares

Hi all! Recently I had a few friends over and I had some of my Chewy And Sweet Nut Seed Fruit Squares out on my counter. Everyone plus the kids liked them and I thought I’d take a quick moment to share.

My kids love this because it’s sweet and chewy with little bits of crunch. It’s the perfect snack to keep in a zip lock in my purse and has been especially proven useful to me when my 2 year old is getting fussy. I will admit her hands can get a little sticky afterwards but her little toddler hands get sticky anyway so it’s never been a big deal for me. (Baby wipes!)

Kid friendly snack recipe! These Chewy And Sweet Nut Seed Fruit Squares Raw Bars were a hit with my 2 year old.

Chewy And Sweet Nut Seed Fruit Squares Raw Bar Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of whatever nuts, seeds or dry fruit you want
  • 2 spoonfuls of sugar
  • 2 spoons of brown rice syrup
  • 1 spoon of water
  • parchment paper/baking pan

For my version (pictured) I used:

Pumpkin seeds
Peanuts
Pine nuts
Chopped almonds
Sunflower seeds
Teeny bit of leftover quick oats (not cooked)

  • Feel free to chop up any kind of nuts, seeds and dry fruit and fill your 2 cups.
  • Brown rice syrup is a healthier alternative to corn syrup.

Directions

  1. On medium heat roast your nuts/seeds mix in a pan until slightly fragrant.  (Optional because you can decide to keep your nuts/seeds mix raw)
  2. Turn off heat and mix in your dry fruit
  3. In another pan have your sugar, rice syrup and water and start heating on medium/low. Once your mixture is melted and starts to bubble turn off the heat and mix in your nut mix. (Another great version of this is when you add 1-2 thin slices of ginger to the syrup mix and remove them before mixing in your nuts/seeds). Note: Careful not to burn your syrup!
  4. Mix everything together well, once everything starts to cool down you’ll feel all the sugar mix getting thicker and stickier.
  5. Have a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Pour your mix into the baking pan and use another paper to press down and flatten your mix.
  6. Leave everything out at room temperature for about an hour. This keeps the bars more chewy and easier to eat for the kids.
  7. Remove your nut/seed block from the pan and cut it into little squares or bars.
  8. Keep in ziplock or airtight container for up to 7 days.

Enjoy! Let me know in the comments if you’ve ever tried this or have any questions!

Maybelline FIT Me Dewy and Master Prime Face Studio base and primer Review

I’m excited to announce that I’ve received my 2nd PR package! Thank You to Influenster and Maybelline for the complimentary Maybelline FIT Me Dewy and Maybelline Facestudio Master Prime Primer in this review. Although I received these items for free all opinions and content are my own.

So, I’m not really a makeup girl

My everyday routine is pretty damn simple (o.k, basic). Wash my face, lotion and a light powder foundation, draw brows and out the door. I used to like putting makeup on and doing my hair all pretty but with 3 young kids, let’s face it, I have too many other things to tend to in the morning.

I received the Maybelline FIT Me Dewy foundation in Natural Beige and the Maybelline Facestudio Master Prime Primer in the mail the other day. To be honest I was a little too excited. I’d have the opportunity to try something I otherwise wouldn’t have tried and have a full face of makeup on for a day and call it “work”.

Let’s start with the Maybelline Facestudio Master Prime Primer

I’ll be turning 32 this year (old af it feels like) and I have not tried or used any primer before this. I think my MUA used some on me on my wedding day like 10 years ago but that was about it. Maybelline Facestudio Master Prime Primer is light and smooth. I didn’t need to use a lot of the product to cover my face. Although I cannot compare this to other products I’ll say that I like it. My skin felt moist (I know I don’t like that word either) and hydrated but didn’t feel sticky.

Going on to the Maybelline FIT Me Dewy Liquid Foundation

Let’s start with this: I don’t like my face looking dewy. I’m way more into the matte foundation look so I was pretty skeptical about the Maybelline FIT Me Dewy Foundation. A little of this product definitely goes a long way. This foundation is light, buildable and kept my face looking and feeling hydrated all day. For testing purposes I didn’t use anything on top of my base and foundation and coverage lasted all day. I did use my sponge once in the middle of the day (around 2-3PM) because I felt I looked a little oily. That being said, I also want to add that I did receive more than a few compliments on my skin while out. (winning!) So, I’m guessing there may be something to this whole dewy-skin look that I’m not fully understanding just yet.

Here’s a short video of the package I received from Influenster + Maybelline that contained the 2 items reviewed above. Although items were complimentary all opinions of this product are my own.

House Of Vain K-Wrinkle Patches: Significantly reduced the fine lines under my eyes overnight

It could be because I’m a mom of 3 or that fact that I’m in my 30’s but I’ve noticed some fine lines and wrinkles appearing under my eyes; and it’s not a happy feeling. I wanted to try inject-able wrinkle fillers but I’m deathly afraid of needles (don’t tell my kids). Luckily, I’ve found a simple and effective solution: K-Wrinkle Patches.

K-Wrinkle Patches significantly reduced the fine lines under my eyes overnight!

There is no shortage of options to consider when it comes to skincare products

These products come in various forms such as lotions, pills, creams, inject-able solutions etc. After all, everybody likes to maintain youngness of skin (particularly the facial and neck areas). Interestingly, regardless of the type of the product, it is normal for us (women) to expect quick results with less or zero trouble. That said, K-Wrinkle Patches are a unique product in this highly competitive market and it promises to offer quicker, reliable and trouble-free transformation to your skin.

Herewith I am sharing the personal experience I had with K-Wrinkle Patches; I am pretty sure that this information might become handy when you are shopping around for a good wrinkle remover.

A few highlights and facts of K-Wrinkle Patches

  1. Each pack comes with 2 pieces (1 pair) and each patch consists of about 400 micro-sized cones built with 100% Hyaluronic acid.
  2. Made In Korea – It’s no secret! Beauty products from South Korea are of great quality and the price points are very competitive within the market.

Comparable products include Rodan + Fields and Peter Thomas Roth Professional

K-Wrinkle Patches are a cost efficient way to minimize the look of wrinkles on your face.

 

K-Wrinkle Patch Usage Instructions:
1. Wash your face with a cleanser.
2. Remove patches from the package.
3. The white sticker labels are the sticky side. Remove the white sticker labels and apply the sticky side to desired area. Be careful not to stick the patch to itself because it’s impossible to detach. You will have to dispose of the patch if this happens.
4. There is also a clear sticker back which is there just to protect the product. You can peel these off as well.
5. THIS STEP IS A MUST: Press down the patches into your skin firmly until you can’t feel the micro cones anymore. You’ll feel the micro cones going into your skin, but no worries! This is not painful nor does it put you into any discomfort.
6. Once the patches are on you can moisturize as usual but avoid putting any lotions or products on the patches. You wouldn’t want the patches to un-stick from your skin while you’re asleep.
7. Wake up and simply peel the the patches off. I had little indent marks when I first peeled off my patches but this goes away within 20-30 minutes.
8. Cleanse and apply your daily routine (moisturize, makeup, etc.)

***For maximum results use an entire box (8 pairs) within 2 weeks***

Here are the most notable positive points I’ve experienced with K-Wrinkle Patches.

  • 100% High Quality Made In Korea Skin Care Product & Safe

One of the major doubts people have when shopping around for a skincare product is safety and quality. Some products that promises to deliver instant results consist of harmful, toxic chemicals that come with side effects. In this case, I am certain that K-Wrinkle Patches are a human-safe and harmless product because it is manufactured based on Hyaluronic acid. Apart from that, it comes with KFCC certification. I do want to add: If you have sensitive skin please consult your dermatologist!

  • Rapid results

Compared to most of the skincare products I have tried, K-Wrinkle Patches are a product that delivers speedy results (without any side-effects). Apart from the rapidness, I like to call it a very easy-to-use product; all you have to do is to stick the patch on the wrinkled area and sleep.

  • Very effective strategy

The strategy behind this product is very effective; once you apply the patch on the skin, the special formula starts to melt and penetrate the skin. Then it starts to rejuvenate the skin by filling the wrinkles. The formula they have used is capable of repairing the damaged skin cells and eliminate the wrinkle effect. Although I am not a dermatologist, I honestly feel the effectiveness of the special formula they’ve included in these patches.

  • It can improve the overall skin condition

In addition to removing the wrinkles, these K-Wrinkle Patches can improve the overall appearance and the condition of the skin. In fact, I feel that this product can slightly remove the overall sagginess of the skin and therefore, it does the job as a good anti-aging product. Also, I noticed my skin looking brighter just after 1 use.

 

Negative points of K-Wrinkle Patches

I couldn’t notice any significant drawback related to this product. However, the effectiveness of this product might vary depending on the type of the skin you have. In addition to that, if you have a very sensitive skin, you will have to consult your skincare specialist before you apply it.

A couple of things to consider when applying your K-Wrinkle Patches

  1. Wash your face before applying your patches and even before applying any toners or lotions. Once the patches are on, apply your moisturizers around the patches – you wouldn’t want them to slide off your face while sleeping.
  2. Be careful when peeling the stickers off your K-Wrinkle patches. If it were to ever stick to itself: you won’t be able to peel it open again.
  3. Once you open your package apply right away and don’t leave it open, it will damage the product.
  4. When you first put your K-wrinkle patch on the skin and press you can feel the teeny tiny  micro cones on your skin. No worries though! It’s no where near uncomfortable or painful.

Conclusion

Overall, I am happy with the results this product delivered to me. It is rapid, free of side-effects and easy to apply; what’s more for a busy working mom? More importantly, it is a syringe-free, pill-free skincare solution that does the job.
