A goal this year was to begin giving more time to my passions and along those are this blog! Trying to think what exactly I want to share and keep it straight forward to those exact things. I know I might have shared about many different things, but I want to change that! I want to go back to my roots, fashion is a big part of me. How is it different now? Well, my style has changed from vintage/colorful style to a more comfortable/neutral colors styles. Also, I want to share different brands I am passionate about now. I am dedicated to find the best quality items that can last many years, instead of how much can I get for $100, if you know what I mean? Ethically made is a strong passion for me now too. I guess becoming a mom has changed a lot inside of me (other than physically hehe). Thinking that there might be some child laboring in some other country to make my cheap clothes doesn’t leave a good thought in my mind, as well as any other person mistreated poorly and unfairly. I am not perfect (or a millionaire), but I will try to find what fits and works for me and my lifestyle.
Another big passion I want to share is home style, design, decor, however you call it! It is a huge passion, probably same level or more of fashion. I know many of you love when I share things around my house or any other home style scenario when I travel (more than any other picture I share!)
Of course if a travel I would love to share pictures of my time and experience there (even though I haven’t even shared my pictures from new york… oops sorry! ). But it will be shared along the lines of outfits I am wearing and beautiful style and designs of places in that city.
I know many think of me as a “mommy blogger”, but I don’t think that of myself. I am a mom, and pictures of Atticus will always be expected! Still, I don’t want my feed or this space to be solely about that. My heart has changed this past year, with OCD and anxiety and other fears I have tried to limit how much I shared about Atticus. This is in no way reflects my love for him or importance of him in my life. THE CONTRARY, HE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN MY LIFE, I LOVE HIM MORE THAN ANYTHING, I WILL PROTECT HIM FOREVER AND EVER AND PUT HIM BEFORE ME. And for that reason my job is to keep him safe. It doesn’t mean I won’t share about motherhood! That is my number one job and I want to share my experiences for others to read and not feel they are alone in this journey, because believe me I feel alone a lot!
I don’t remember the last time I wrote this much, but I hope you like where my vision is going! I want to treat this space more like a business along with my passions. Let me know your thoughts in the comments ❤️

Hello friends! Is everyone out there with the flu or cold? Yes, I think every house in America is sick! We were all sick this last week, thank God it didn’t last long. A lot of lying around and snuggles, but I’m not complaining about that!
A place Atticus loves to lay around is his new Dockatot Grand. He even took naps in there while being sick and it’s something that really surprised me because he never just lays somewhere and takes a nap, only in his crib. As soon as I opened the Dockatot box and placed it in the living room floor he jumped right in it. He loves to play in his Dockatot, reading books and playing with his toys, watching TV while lounging and drinking his milk bottle while laying back. My personal favorite is that it is machine washable! A toddler with hands and mouth filled with food you can expect things to get dirty quickly. And the occasional diaper accident… yes poor boy’s tummy didn’t agree with something. I took the cover off and threw it in the wash, it was like brand new again. Another favorite is how comfortable it is, I wish it came in adult sizes! I love how light and easy to carry it is, with a handle on the side for easy transport around the house or out of the house. It is great to take on road trips or the park. I will definitely use it when I start transitioning Atticus from crib to toddler bed. Atticus used to co-sleep with us in our bed until he was about six months old. I loved co-sleeping with him. The Dockatot Deluxe is great for co-sleeping with your brand new baby, I totally recommend it to all new moms and dads. Co-sleeping with Atticus was such a sweet memory that I will cherish forever.
Dockatot is handmade in Europe, designed in Sweden and it has been tested for breathability and is OEKO-TEX certified. It’s made from all natural, 100% cotton, ideal micro-climate for babies and toddlers. I love how there are different cover prints for everyone’s style, you can have different covers and change them as you want. Another accessory that is super cute is the toy arch for the Deluxe, perfect for your little babies to play with and look at while laying back. It’s definitely a must in every baby registry!!

Happy weekend my friends!
Happy new year everyone! I hope the holidays were great with your family and loved ones. This year I want to make it a great one, a happier and healthier one. Small changes in your lifestyle and around you really do help the way you feel and keep a positive mind. One of things I love doing is changing things around my home or adding one thing that changes the feel of the whole room. I believe in quality over quantity and it’s something that I want to live fully this year. Things have to have a purpose or bring joy to my life.
A new addition to my home is my Lorena Canals Rug and is one with a purpose and sparks joy in my life. The number one thing I love about the Lorena Canals Rugs is that they are machine-washable! With a toddler running around with food on his hand and mouth or trying to pull cups of tables, this rugs is a life saver. Also, if you have pets and they think rugs are grass… oops. Yes, already happened! I just put it in the wash and it was like brand new! And it fits into a standard washers and dyers. Another favorite is how soft they are, they just get softer and softer. Of course the design I love! They have a variety of designs to go with different styles and rooms, kids and adults. The rugs are handmade in India, designed in Spain, with all natural dyes, eco-friendly and contain no VOCs like most carpeting and rugs. I would recommend this rug to everyone, parents and not parents. It is a great addition to a nursery, a kid’s play room or any room of the house. It is a must have to add to your baby registry. I promise you would love it! I added to my living room because it’s the area we are most of the day playing, eating, watching TV and “me time” when baby boy is napping.
Lorena Canals Rugs offer other products additional to rugs. You can fine beautiful Washable Cushions, Wall Decor, Baskets and Blankets on their website. I think I need a washable cushion from them next! Am I the only one or cushion gets so dirty in your home? Especially when you try to put a plate on them and eat while watching TV….
Another great quality about Lorena Canals Rugs is that they give to a cause by giving proceeds to support the Sakula project to provide schooling for children in India. You can read more about their social mission here.
