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!

Love,

Natalia

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.

Love,

Natalia

I am one that has always used skin care products ever since my late teens. I want to look young even when I’m 50!  The way to achieve this is by taking care of your skin.  While I was pregnant I was kind of lazy… I mean I was tired! Then baby boy was here and there’s no time for anything the first few weeks.  I set a goal that I have to start taking care of my skin again.  I have really never found the perfect scrub for me and never settled on one.  I have stuck to the basic daily skin care routine most of my life.  Still, I have noticed that my pores have been more open and I have way more black heads.  I knew I needed to start exfoliating my skin, getting rid of all that dead skin and dirt in my pores.  Then, I was introduced to Joe! I was really excited to try this scrub. JoeScrub is an all natural, cruelty free, vegan product line for all types of skin. Each scrub has skin and health benefits, and they also smell amazing!  I’ve always wanted to try a coffee scrub and now was my chance! Along with two more, matcha and charcoal.

The matcha sugar scrub has antioxidants for detoxification and to combat bacteria and inflammation. Also, it will enhance your mood and boost concentration, amen to that! Exactly what this new mommy needs. It is made from only 7 ingredients: Organic matcha green tea powder, organic cane sugar, Shea butter, apricot kernel oil, organic coconut oil, calendula oil and sandalwood essential oil.

The charcoal sugar scrub also detoxifies, healing your skin, relieving stress and improves productivity. Its active charcoal ingredient draws impurities, tightens the pores and leaving skin smooth.  This is exactly what my skin needs! It left my face so smooth and silky.  Along with the active charcoal, it has other 7 ingredients: organic cane sugar, organic chamomile, Shea butter, castor oil, organic coconut oil, lavender essential oil and rosemary essential oil.  This scrub smells so good!

The coffee scrub can be used on face and body and its smells amazing! This scrub helps tighten the skin leaving the skin toned and even.  It left my skin feeling soft and moist.  I can say this one was my favorite because it smells so good! It’s made out of 9 ingredients: Fair trade organic coffee grinds, organic cacao, Himalayan pink salt, brown sugar, organic coconut oil, grapeseed oil, almond oil and jasmine essential oil.

I totally recommend JoeScrubs! I would recommend applying right before you get in the shower or while in the bathtub. You can use them 2-3 times a week.  I left mine on my skin while I took a shower and then rinsed off.  It left my skin so soft and silky!

And for all my readers and followers,  you can take a 25% discount with code Curious25.  I totally recommend The Weekender, so you can try all three of them!
