Celebrated my first Mother’s Day this past Sunday and it was such a special day! What a blessing is to be Atticus mom. Can’t believe seven months have gone by so fast in front of us. It’s such a privilege that I am able to stay at home raising him and seeing him grow. Still, it is not as easy as I’m sure so many people think it is. I was one of those people. Imagine trying to figure out what’s wrong with your baby when they are whiny or crying after you’ve done everything it could be. They don’t just tell you, in any form of language. It’s so overwhelming not knowing how to make them feel better. It is heartbreaking seeing them hurt when they are sick or teething. When they bump their heads when they are learning to sit and stand. This is a real job that shouldn’t be taken for granted. They positives outweigh the negatives. Like him learning how to say mama, or laughing so loud when you’re tickling them, when they fall asleep next to you, when they give you the biggest smile when you go to their room in the morning, when they know exactly who you are and only want to be comforted by only you. Something I have learned since I have become a mom is that it is very important to treat yourself and to know you are still your own person. This will help you be a better mom to your baby and improve your mental health as well.
With that being said, I have teamed up with JORD Watches to introduce you to this amazing high quality wood watches.

I am a sucker for beautiful local spaces you can come in and get inspired. I am always on the lookout for new places to visit in my own city. I know it’s something we love to do when we go out of town, finding local coffee shops, boutiques and shops that are unique and aesthetically beautiful. But, we don’t go out of town all of the time, so we have to find our own inspirations in our own city. When I heard Marble and Pine was opening a shop right here in Jacksonville I was so excited! I knew it was going to be an awesome space and when they opened I couldn’t wait to visit. And yes, when they open it was just the perfect little flower shop you can come in and get floral bouquets or make your own bouquet from an assortment of fresh blooms. They also have a boutique section where you can buy a card to add to your bouquet to gift someone, a selection of candles, pots and baskets, succulents and cactus! The people there are so nice and inviting, making the whole experience so lovely. I met owner, Chandler, and I just loved her! She is so talented and creates the most beautiful floral creations for weddings and events, it made me want to do my whole wedding all over again! I definitely need a vowel renewal…
One thing I am most excited for is their Easter Wreath workshop on April 15th! Give me all the Eucalyptus and flowers!! I would love for you to join me this day and have a great time while creating beautiful wreaths (with the help of Chandler!). You can buy your ticket here and get a 10% discount with code Natalia10. Hope to see you there!
Another day, another peplum… I know! Don’t judge haha. One of the many struggles women have after giving birth to their precious little ones is postpartum body. I know for sure it was so worth growing a life inside of me (which I still can’t believe I did!) and now I have the most adorable little boy. We have to continue wearing our maternity clothes for a while and to be honest I really didn’t want to wear my maternity jeans anymore! You’re probably screaming if I’m crazy, “those are the most comfortable thing in the world!” They were not comfortable to me at all, I felt they were always falling. Anyways, going through your closet trying everything again can be a little discouraging because you want to wear you pre pregnancy clothes. That cute dress or top, even shoes don’t fit the same! But something positive came out of all this, I had to buy new clothes! Haha. I mean I’m not complaining about that! It makes such a different wearing something that actually fits right. Every now and then, “I’m like I need to loose weight, some other times I’m like I don’t care”.
Going back to finding clothes that make you feel beautiful, this top from Pinkblush is on the list! I know I might be loving peplum to much, but I really love the shape of them and how flattering they look in so many people! What I love about Pinkblush is that they have so many clothing pieces that can be used from pregnancy to motherhood. They are not your typical maternity clothes (with those scrunches on the side I hate so much ugh!) and it can be used for transition after pregnancy and not look like they were ever maternity clothes. Pinkblush also have clothes for all sizes, shoes, accessories and even baby items. I know this sweater top will be on repeat this fall and winter seasons!
I’m excited to announce I am hosting a $50 gift card giveaway from Pinkblush on my Instagram today! Check today’s Instagram picture for details on how to enter this giveaway.
