#SAGlimpse day 31

Day 31 of the San Antonio bloggers Instagram photo a day challenge is self portrait.

Just woke up, no makeup, and my hairs a tangled mess! Trust me, the Instagram filters make all the difference in the world!

I actually hate am not a fan of the cell phone self portraits and bathroom mirror pics (don’t get me started on my annoyance of those)!

I know that sounds contradictory coming from a model with a portfolio full of pictures of nothing of me, but that’s my job, its my passion. I don’t love modeling just to look at my face, I TRULY LOVE the art of it, the creativity and thought that goes into everything from makeup to lighting. Hopefully you’ve noticed that my modeling work is high fashion and artsy as opposed to everyday catalog.

Check out, and like, my modeling page to see what you think.

A tear free bath time

River LOVES bath time. Except for one thing…he hates when daddy rinses the shampoo out of his hair and gets water in his face.

The solution? A Nuby tear free rinse pail.

The pail features a comfortable grip for mom or dad, a deep, slender base for easy filling in shallow water and a unique tear-free edge. The tear-free edge is soft and contoured so it can be gently placed against your baby’s skin to help prevent water from running into your baby’s eyes while rinsing their hair.

It took a time or two for River to get used to it and understand what it was for, but now it has made bath time that much better as he realizes he won’t get water in his eyes.

Get yours here and take the tears out of bath time.

Not to mention that they make a great bath time toy. It’s River’s new favorite to scoop, fill and dump!

#SAGlimpse day 30

Day 30 of the San Antonio Bloggers Instagram photo a day challenge is shoes.

I can’t fit all of my shoe collection into one picture. I’m a full fledged, self admitted, shoe-a-holic!

My closet is full of stacks and stacks of shoes sleeping comfortably in their boxes.

I don’t even know what the count is on my collection, but I’m pretty confident in saying that it’s close to 100. And that’s even after going through them and donating quite a few pairs that I haven’t worn in a while!

Small compared to some collections, bigger than others.

I love shoes! What’s your clothing obsession? Purses? Necklaces? Jeans?

Monster feeding time

Look how cute these little monster dishes from Nuby are!

My boys are affectionately referred to as my mini monsters; they just had to have this set!

I originally got it for my 3 year old son River but my 8 year old son Rayne asks to use them all the time too!

The pieces are colorful, sturdy, fun and cute! They’re great for hot or cold foods and microwave safe.

Your minis will be asking to eat with this set at every meal!

These pieces make meal time fun! Just look at River’s making a monster face as he eats with his monster set!
