I am back!!! Oh my goodness you guys... I've been wanting to write this post for a while now! Our baby boy David Gabriel, has arrived and we couldn't be happier!
After nine long months, struggling with severe nausea, rib pains, exhaustion, restless legs, backache, lack of sleep, a few trips to the hospital... I am so happy that our little bundle of joy is here with us! My heart is bursting with happiness. 
Born right on the due date, April 15th @ 23:59. Everything went smoothly, thanks to my amazing husband that was by my side every second of it, our awesome Dr. and the wonderful nurses at the Oakville Hospital. We couldn't be happier and Sofia is thrilled with her baby brother.
Can't believe I only pushed for 8 minutes and had baby in my arms. 
It's been really busy with a newborn at home and a 3 year old and that is why I won't be  posting very often for a while now, but I will do my very best to be back soon. Meanwhile I wanted to share with you some of my maternity photos and our new family member. He is a little angel, eats a lot and is a good sleeper already. We are very lucky! 

I really recommend every woman to take some maternity photos while pregnant, sometimes all you need is a good camera and good lighting. This pregnancy was really hard on me, I was pretty much sick all the time and I wasn't feeling my best for pictures, but I really didn't want to miss the opportunity of taking some great belly shots. 

I will keep you all posted and hopefully will soon return with new posts. 
I got so many awesome treats from my dear husband lately, one of them is a gorgeous Guess bag and tons of beauty products for mommy to enjoy. I really gotta share it with you all.
Don't forget to follow me on Instagram and Facebook.

Much love from our family to all of you

Hi my loves!
Being pregnant is not a reason to give up on my healthy habits, but to enforce them even more.
We all need to detox our bodies once in a while. I choose to do it pretty much everyday with delicious smoothies made with my favorite veggies and fruits. It's not only healthy, but it's easy to make and delicious, so let's get started with my top 5 favorite green smoothies. 
Before adding all my ingredients, I start by pouring some water or coconut water in my blender, so the blender blades can move freely. Next I add chunks of my favorite vegetables or fruits.
I also choose organic fruits and veggies, but when I can't find organic I always make sure to wash them in a bowl with water and a bit of vinegar. You don't want to eat those yaki pesticides.

For the 1st smoothie all you need is:
A handful of fresh spinach leaves
1 carrot 
1 apple
1 cup of water
Place all the ingredients in a blender and combine until smooth. 
You can add more or less water to reach the desired consistency. 

2nd favorite smoothie
A handful of fresh Kale leaves 
1 slice of Pineapple
1 table spoon of Chia seeds
1 baby cucumber
a couple of nuts 
1 cup of water
Place all the ingredients in a blender and combine until smooth. 
You can add more or less water to reach the desired consistency. 

1 celery
1 handful of fresh parsley
1 peeled cucumber
fresh ginger
1 mango
1 freshly squeezed lemon
Place all the ingredients in a blender and combine until smooth. 
You can also add water to reach the desired consistency.

1 slice of pineapple
2 Kiwis
1 handful of blueberries
1/2 cup of water
Place all the ingredients in a blender and combine until smooth. 
You can add more or less water to reach the desired consistency. 

1 handful of fresh baby spinach
1 apple
1/2 banana
1 cup of yogurt
5 strawberries
1/2 orange
Blend well and enjoy!
This will give you tons of energy!

Do you have any great healthy and delicious recipes to share with us or perhaps would like to be a guest on my blog and share your recipes please email me @
I would love to hear from you!
Wishing everyone a happy and blessed Easter!

Hi ladies!
I simply love these personal style bloggers, they inspire me with their looks, all awesome in their own ways. 
I will definitely share more in the future in other posts but for now here is a little update on my pregnancy: 
I am getting really close to my due date, two weeks or less and our baby boy will be here with us.
   We can hardly wait!!! For now I just have to deal with all the fun pre- labour signs that are increasing as the days go by. I've been having lots of sharp pains in my cervix, really strong leg cramps at night, regular trips to the washroom, baby already engaged " can definitely feel the pressure", Braxton hicks all the time specially at the end of the day and last but not least definitely not glowing at this point. LOL 
I am so ready to have this baby, our hospital bags are ready to go, his room is ready, now it's just a waiting game. 

Take care everyone!

If you've been following my blog for a while, you already know I love animals. 
The issue of animal rights is close to my heart, especially  the problem with animal testing in cosmetics. 
 It makes me really happy that more and more companies are becoming cruelty free, but I wish many more that I used to be a fan of would also stop testing on animals. 
 I wish there would be more famous/ big brands that would stop this cruel practice against animals. 
 Hopefully one day!!! 
Animals should all be treated with respect and not locked up in cages and have chemicals rubbed into their eyes or forced down their throats. 
Hope you enjoyed this post and hopefully with more posts like these I can make it easier for you all to buy cruelty free. I was for sure happy to find these great brands at Sephora. 

You are welcome to check out my other cruelty free posts in the beauty section. 
Here are just a few:

When in doubt of which products are cruelty free, you can always contact the company itself or visit these websites to find out which companies do and which don't test on animals. Animals don't deserve to suffer for our vanity and remember beauty is only beautiful when you are not hurting anyone :
Please don't hesitate to share any questions, concerns or ideas you may have!
Take care everyone!

Easy DIY today ladies and gentlemen. 
 Who doesn't want their home to smell amazing and fresh? I love to do this homemade air freshener, it's easy, quick, eco-friendly and best part is there are no chemicals involved. 
This is what I do: 
In a pot, I boil some orange peels with 2 cinnamon sticks, if you don't have the cinnamon sticks you can always add 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. I also like to add a little bit of lemon juice and rosemary leaves to the boiling water then turn it to medium heat. 
The steam fills the air in your home with a really pleasant scent.
Don't forget, next time you eat an orange don’t throw away those orange peels and try this easy diy! 
Et VoilĂ !
Hope you enjoyed this quick and easy DIY.
Take care everyone!
