Okay, so many moons ago when I was a young whipper-snapper, my phone of choice was the sidekick before I started wearing make-up and such, I had a beautiful, clear skin. I would notice that even with drinking water, eating veggies and washing my face twice a day I was still accumulating pimples. Come to find out once I got a new phone, the pimples stopped. Would you believe that my phone was the cause of my acne?
Our cell phones, even though they are widely used (we have them on our person almost every moment of the day) are barely viewed as germy items. Cell phones carry 25,000 germs per square inch and with the phone trend being the bigger the better, that's a lot of germs in a small area.
To put it into perspective, our phones are 10 times dirtier than the toilet, a public screen (such as the help station in the MTA,) a door knob and a kitchen counter. (GROSS!)
Celluwipes were developed to help you combat those gross germs and eliminate them. Made in the USA, they're easy to use, safe for your cell phone and come in a pocket-friendly size so they travel with you easily. You can purchase your own Celluwipes here on Amazon or any Meijer Store in the Midwest; Michigan, Illinois, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio and Wisconsin.
Celluwipes is having a Rock Your Phone Giveaway in which you can enter to win some crazy prizes including a Moment Lens & Case, a tripod by Joby Griptight Gorrillapod and a Carved portable battery bank.
After years of rising numbers and extremely slow declination, when it comes to cigarette smokers, cigarette usage has been on the decline. The FDA has yet to attribute the lower numbers to vape and e-cigarette companies but we know the truth. Click the link to find out more information!

Before I had Sai, purses were not a concern for me. A simple wallet, phone and keys was all I needed and I was out of the door. I used to carry an orange Tory Burch clutch that my step mom bought me from Bloomingdales and jam pack all my shit in there including lipstick. These days, "everything but the kitchen sink" is a sad, but true statement. I chose some bags for new moms based on stages/usability that will hopefully make your life easier and more fashionable as you transition through the beautiful stages of motherhood.

Spills are inevitable for brand new moms. If the bottle isn't on tightly or you forget to cap your Dr. Browns just know a mess will happen. I recommend Nylon bags for new moms because you can pop these bad boys right in the washer machine when a mess occurs. This bag is from Kate Spade so it's more on the luxury side and retails for $378.00.
RETURNING BACK TO WORK
The struggle returning to work is so real. None of your clothes fit. The baby has tons of things and you've been rocking the same over sized t-shirt and frumpy sweat pants(yoga pants if you're like me). You don't have to compromise style for utility. Any laptop bag that has separations is perfect for that transitioning baby bag. Instead of carry 2 or 4 bottles like you did the first 6 months, you just need to carry one to get you through the car ride or travel home. I recommend this Zara bag which is chic enough to make it to work but also functional enough to carry some pampers, wipes and a bottle. This bag is more on the affordable side and retails for $69.90.
GOING SHOPPING ON THE WEEKEND
This bucket bag or "rucksack" is perfect for taking a weekend trip to the mall. It's androgynous so your mate won't feel weird if you ask him to hold the bag. He might actually want to keep it. It's faux leather so if there's a spill all you have to do is wipe it! At $40.38 it won't break the bank!
THE WE'RE GOING OUT AND WON'T BE HOME FOR ALMOST 24 HOURS BAG
If it's one thing new moms can rely on, it's their baby being unpredictable. Babies can poop through their clothes at any given moment so if you're going far from home or you will be gone for a long time, you need to make sure you have doubles and triples of everything. This purse is so big you will have enough space for their stuff and yours. Oh, and it's also mad cute. This bag is from Lulu's and it comes with not one, not two but three pockets to store those single powers or anything else you may desire. The damage? $29
Wow, we're already 6 months into 2016. I feel as if I was just getting ready for New Years! The weather in NY has finally broke and mother nature has been blessing us with beyond beautiful weather. I just washed all my winter garms and judging by what I pulled out of those bins, it's time to go shopping!
I was in the Facebook group Trends To Inspire(I can invite you if you wish to join) and one of the ladies mentioned SheIn. After looking at the website, I fell in love with almost everything. They have so many unique pieces that are definitely Spring/Summer ready and super fashionable. Below are some of my pics from their newest stuff. I have not ordered from them yet but I will post a full review when I do.
