Wedding Season Has Begun

Goin’ to the chapel and we’re gonna get married …..#ilovethatsong

Okay so this is your big day ! The day you’ve been waiting for since you were a little girl

This is what I tell all my brides when they ask me how they should prepare their skin for the BIG day 🙂

Unknown-2

6 months before your big day :

Moisturizer,sunblock, and 2 liters of water a day

Exfoliate and moisturize your entire body so your skin is camera ready

Start eating clean because you are what you eat

Be skin smart by starting a religious skincare routine and having a monthly facial until your wedding day

If you have any acne, get in touch with your dermatologist to consider possible treatment options

If you have mature or tired skin, try Microdermabrasion or a Jessner peel to help get your skin looking radiant & healthy

3 months before the wedding:

Keep doing above steps

Splurge on that eye cream girl.

Get a massage

Start dry brushing your entire body

 

Unknown

1 Month Before Your Wedding

Resist the urge to start anything new when it comes to skin products

Cleanse, Hydrate, Moisturize, & Protect

You’re not going to see results from an anti-aging cream or cleansing routine in a month’s time anyway, so your best bet is sticking to what you know your skin can tolerate.

Don’t even try a new makeup remover or face wash, now is not the time to experiment.

Get a massage

Get a body scrub

Dry brush your body

Avoid alcohol as its very dehydrating & can undermine all the preparation you have done

Get at least 8 hours of sleep each night

 

Unknown-3

 

One week before

Have your last facial at least one week before your wedding day

Make sure it is the same facial that you’ve had before, to avoid any nasty skin reactions

Cleanse, hydrate, & protect your skin

Get another body scrub

Sleep

 

 

 

True Unconditional Love

On April 13 2013 my life changed in the best way possible. Gianna Valentina was born healthy 6lbs 15 oz. I still remember waking up that morning & feeling completely different, I can’t explain it. And I think maybe the look on my face looked different also because my husband decided to stay home from work that Friday. I sang to Gianna throughout the whole pregnancy ( I even took her to a NODOUBT concert when I was 5 mths) but that day Amazing Grace popped in my head so I was singing it to her all day, & even though I was extremely tired my husband made me go to prenatal yoga that day at 2pm; My water broke at 5 pm; I gave birth at 8:47 am Saturday morning.

That morning I heard the sweet sound of her first cry & it was the most beautiful sound I’d ever heard in my life images-1 images-4 images-2

 It has been such an amazing journey. I’ve had so many firsts and a few lasts haha (first mommy mistakes); a year full of happy moments, a few tears here and there whether tears of joy or pure frustration lol.  It is truly one of my biggest responsibilities and goals in life to be a good mother to my child.   I’m proud of myself; proud of my husband and I feel so so blessed that we are her parents and we get to experience all of this together. My husband was raised by a single mother, I was also raised by only my mother & grandma. I would always pray & dream about having a loving family & I always knew that if I ever had children, they would have both parents & unconditional love. Gianna has two parents that love her more than life itself & two parents that love each other more than anything in the world. Thank you God.

I have mastered the cake pop! My dessert table came out pretty cool & I can’t wait to start my own desert company because I have absolutely fallen in love with making sweets! I love the creativity that comes along with making custom desserts! It’s soooooo fun ! ( Time consuming but very fun )IMG_0188 IMG_1738FullSizeRender-92IMG_0079 IMG_0083 FullSizeRender-91 IMG_0206 IMG_0207 IMG_0126 IMG_0072 IMG_0073 IMG_0074 IMG_0082 IMG_0078IMG_0024 IMG_9612

I thank God for our blessings everyday 🙂
