As a soon-to-be-parent, you may choose not to find out the sex of your baby, or even if you do, you could decide that when it comes to the nursery you'd rather forgo traditional pinks and blues and stick to something more neutral that can grow with your child. But the makers of all things baby tend to be a little gender obsessed, so it can be difficult to outfit a non-traditional room or a room for multiples of both sexes.Continue Reading >
When dad-to-be Raul Betancourt first found out his wife was pregnant, he decided to share the news with friends and family in a special way. The result is "Miracle Inside The Box," an amazing video that captures his loved ones' priceless reactions and has quickly gone viral.
In the footage, everyone is given a simple brown box and asked to open it. When they confusedly do so, the response is instantaneous: they gasp, laugh, and scream as they catch their first glimpse as the items inside: photos of the happy parents-to-be alongside two positive pregnancy tests!
Aww ... what an awesome and unique way to make the big announcement! Watching their sweet surprise unfold seriously almost brought tears to my eyes. And they're not the only ones to get creative when it comes to sharing the news. Check out Betancourt's "Miracle Inside The Box" and 4 other amazing pregnancy announcements below:Continue Reading >
North West might be one of the most fashionable celebrity babies in the game and officially making her high fashion modeling debut, but she doesn't have anything on my cousin Liza's daughter Alana. Alana isn't even 5 months old yet and the girl has more style than chicas five times her age. She even has her own Instagram account called @alanas_boutique where you can buy some of her hand-me-down outfits. I'm telling you, she could teach us all a thing or two about how to dress!Continue Reading >
It's that time of the year when the kiddies are back to school and our mornings and evenings become rather chaotic in the shuffle. I don't know about you, but I like to keep that chaos to a minimum, especially in the mornings. I don't want my kids running around looking for their backpacks or homework or lunches or whatevs. I find that designating a small command center zone in my home really helps with the morning and after school routine. My kids know where to get their stuff in the morning and they know where to put their stuff after school without me having to nag them.
Putting together a back-to-school drop zone can be super easy too, as you'll see!
I'm beginning to think the fashion gods that be have it out for curvy girls. Seriously! Every time I look at a fashion mag, it seems like they're telling me, an admittedly short and curvy chica, patterns, skinny jeans, crop tops, loose blouses, tight shirts, long skirts, short skirts, skirts in general, and everything in between are totally off limits for my voluptuous body. Um, correct me if I'm wrong, but that pretty much leaves us shapely women with nothing but A-line skirts and bell bottoms to wear. Um, that's pretty limiting if you ask me.Continue Reading >
Plants are beautiful and the perfect touch to add personality to any space. If you are a Feng Shui kind of person, you know that they bring great balance to a room and even attract all that negative energy from some visitors. I personally used to have indoor plants, but I couldn't keep them alive for too long. I didn't know I was buying varieties that were "easy to kill." Yes, it turned out that it wasn't me after all.
If you are a little intimidated by the green living things, I invite you to watch this slide show so you can choose wisely next time you are shopping in a plant nursery.
Three women were recently busted trying to smuggle stolen watches in their vajayjays, giving new meaning to the term: biological clock.
Friends Bryana Warren, Trinity Kennard and Charmella Triggs were arrested for allegedly stealing a pair of Rolexes valued at $12,000 and $4,000 from a couple of Las Vegas tourists. Police say the sticky-fingered trio flirted with the out-of-towners, got them drunk, and accompanied the men back to their room, where they engaged in some hanky-panky.
Getting sick while you are expecting is one of the scariest things that can happen to any mom. You want to get better so you can eat normally and have the energy to get things ready for the big day, but you are afraid to take medication. With medicine, the best thing do is to keep the amount to the minimum when you're expecting. But it's also better to take something you need than to let the sickness evolve into something more serious that could affect the baby's health. But how do you know which meds are safe during pregnancy?
Fall has always been my favorite season of the year. Not only do I love the cooler weather but I get excited at the thought of buying new clothes. Best part is, this season's fashion trends don't just work for the runway, they actually look good on all body types--especially those of us with curves! It's all about classic dresses (with cleverly placed panels and seams), dark florals, bold colors and figure-flattering pencil skirts that look amazing on a big booty!
William Levy turns 34 today! The handsome Cuban actor has tempted us on the telenovela scene and quickly took over the mainstream with starring roles in Addicted and The Single Moms Club. The best part of watching Levy's career grow is seeing him stay humble and true to his roots. His luck in the love department may not be as great. While his relationship with the mother of his children Elizabeth Gutiérrez has reportedly hit a rocky point, he continues to be a dedicated dad and we have the images to prove it.
