A little piece of Italy

Les Royales Exclusives: Jardin d'Amalfi by House of Creed

Traveling has always been a great passion of mine and with the new addition to our family, baby Preston, we've taken a little hiatus from our travels to adapt to parenthood. Nevertheless, I've always dreamt of taking my little ones around the world to show them life's greatest adventures! 

Preston, my friend Hannah, and I took off for a little European holiday for baby's first international trip. We started the journey in Florence, Italy, visited Pisa, and took a grand tour down the coastal Italian Riviera. It was everything dreams were made of and more...


From perfect blue waters that glistened like diamonds to big colorful umbrellas lining the beautiful shoreline, to the smell of the crisp-salty air, I really thought I was starring in the perfect Italian film! And to have Preston experience all of this with was completely priceless. It was such a memorable trip full of exciting firsts and adventures for us! I know Preston won't remember any of it, but I'll have videos and photos to share with him when he gets older!


When I first discovered Jardin d'Amalfi from the prestigious House of Creed, the name initially drew me in, after smelling it, however, I was in love. The citrus fresh scent of bergamot and lemon brought me back to my wonderful holiday with my son along the French Riviera that one European summer. Scents have a nostalgic way of bringing us back to a certain memory, almost like an uncontrollable wave of feelings taking over our bodies.

Whenever I wear Jardin d'Amalfi, I feel happy, I feel smitten, I feel grateful to have watched the innocence and joy on my little baby's face as he was covered in a mess tasting his very first gelato along the coast of Italy on that hot summer day. 

I'm glad I'll always have a little piece of Italy right by my side.

HOT & SPICY




HOT & SPICY, that's the name of the color of Preston's new Cybex Cloud Q car seat, aka the baby Ferrari. The very first time I put him in it, he sank in between the plush red cushion and practically laid as still as a board because it was so luxurious and comfortable.


Since becoming a mom, I've seen my fair share of baby gear and have done the research that would place me in the obsessive first-time moms category. I remember looking for a newborn car seat that checked off my list of safety standards, versatility, and of course, how cool it looked (I haven't traded in for Mom jeans just yet). I always passed by the futuristic looking car seat while strolling the aisles and admired the beauty of such a sleek design!  


The Cybex Cloud Q has an impressive list of safety standards that make it an award-winning car seat for the littles! Features such as the Telescopic Linear Side-Impact Protection, adjustable headrest, in-car automatic height adjustment for premature or really small babies, and the ability to fully recline gives me the peace of mind any mom would appreciate! PS... Have you ever heard of a reclining car seat? That's some serious luxe for baby!   



I love the awesome canopy on the car seat, it's super big, has the most fab design, and gives Preston lots of shade on sunny days. It can also be used as a travel system and easily latches on to various strollers, which is an excellent feature for on the go moms like me! Anything that makes #MOMLIFE easier, I'm in!

Get Glowing Skin Now!


When it comes to skincare, I have to admit that I’m a bit of an addict. I love the look of fresh, radiant, glowing skin! I’ve always believed that starting with great skin is the best canvas for your makeup. No amount of makeup can give you that fresh-face glow unless you have amazing skin to begin with!


Recently, I’ve been using Shiseido’s Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate, which is a pre-treatment —kinda like a serum for your serum! It’s anti-aging and fights against damages, you apply this before your serum or moisturizer to get the best results from your products!


After applying Ultimune, I use Shiseido’s White Lucent MultiBright Night Cream all over my face, neck, and décolleté. The White Lucent line has been a favorite of mine since a decade ago when I first discovered it on my friend’s mom’s vanity. She had an impressive collection that sat very pretty on her makeup table. Since using Ultimune in combination with the MultiBright Night Cream, my skin has been more supple, radiant, and hydrated! I’ve noticed that dark spots have diminished and my skin’s texture has improved and become smoother!

Leave me a comment and let me know what are some of your holy grail skincare products for glowing skin!

Happy First of Spring!

Duster: SHOPBALY (S) | Shoes: Fashion Nova | Jeans: Fashion Nova | Top: Forever21

 It's officially the first day of spring wahoo!! That means warmer weather and hopefully more sunshine from now on! 

I went to Pike's over the weekend and picked up the prettiest bunch of cherry blossoms for only $15! One of the perks of living in Seattle is that flowers actually lasts longer than a few days. When I used to buy flowers in Vegas, they'd die within a few days due to the overbearing heat. Yay for spring and pretty blooms!
