I'm In LOVE With The Coco


Hi sweets!  I've missed you!  Mom life has been challenging and keeps me super busy, but I wouldn't change a thing.  Mom life is the best life! 

Today's post is all about HAIR!  I get a ton of questions on what products I use to maintain my curls.  I always start with a sulfate and paraben free shampoo and conditioner.  My hair is naturally dry and these chemicals can strip the natural oils making my hair even dryer.  I have to keep my hair moisturized at all times.  Deep conditioning and oils are a must!  My favorite?  Coconut oil!  I use it for everything.  

SheaMoisture's new 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Hydration Line is ahhhmazing!  It's my current fav!  It's made my hair healthier and shiny.  The leave-in is a miracle spray.  I spray it before styling and my hair feels super soft and manageable. 


 
SheaMoisture has been my go to brand since I became naturally curly 2yrs ago.  Not only are all their products natural, but this coconut oil line is color safe!   

My hair is in LOVE with this stuff! 

My current styling products and even a style post coming soon!

The weather in Jersey has been amazing!  Sunny and warm!  February has felt like Spring.  Perfect for running errands in my SheIn tweed coat. 

SheIn has to be one of my favorite online shops.  Always on trend and super inexpensive.

Maybelline Eye Studio



My makeup routine is never complete without...........you guessed it!  MASCARA!  My everyday makeup is pretty simple with the exception of my lashes.  My lashes need to be voluptuous and bold!  Which they are neither without a good mascara.  Even on days that I don't wear makeup, I find myself applying a coat or two. 

I got the chance to try the new Maybelline Eye Studio collection and I was super impressed!  My favorite of the collection is The Big Shot mascara which is collagen fueled with wavy bristles to coat even your tiniest lash.  The unique design gathers more formula, boosting length and volume!  No smudging or clumping!  The entire collection works so well together.  The Liquid Ink Pen Eye Liners ultra thin tip creates perfect smooth lines.  A cat eyes dream! 

With gold, bronze, and copper shades your going to love the 24K Nudes Palette.  The shadows come in both matte and shimmery finishes.  Perfect for creating that smokey eye we all love.

 
The collection launched this month and is available at most retail stores.  With the pieces being super affordable, it'll be easy to get your signature look!

RED for Valentine's Day



Finding the perfect gift for your honey isn't always easy.   Valentine's Day can be even harder since it's targeted towards women.  Let's face it, a scented candle isn't going to excite him as much as it will you.

Speaking of scents.....a special fragrance can remind you of why you fell in love in the first place.   Where you met, your first date, or even a day as special as your wedding.  An amazing scent can take you places you've never been and places you don't ever want to forget. 

Polo Red by Ralph Lauren is the perfect Valentine's Day gift.  The fiery mix of spicy red saffron, sweet grapefruit, and deep redwood makes it a sexy and bold scent.  A must have in every mans fragrance collection. 






It's wearable from day to day for work or for play.  Sure to please the both of you.  I promise, a few spritz and there is bound to be romance in the air.

Hi, I'm AJ



Happy 2017! 


Feels good to be back...somewhat.  I've been loving being at home taking care of my little nugget, but I'm also looking forward to getting back into the swing of things.  


Yes, he's finally here!!! 


After 40 weeks and 3 days on December 18th at 7:33 AM, I gave birth to my precious baby boy Antonio Luis Pereira Jr. "Baby AJ"  It'll be a Sunday I'll never forget.  He weighed 7 pounds and was 19 1/2 inches long.  He was perfect in every way.  It was love at first sight! 




We've had an amazing month with our little guy.  All the sleepless nights and worry of taking care of a newborn has been super stressful and challenging, but oh so worth it. 


Baby AJ is pure joy and has filled all of our hearts with so much happiness.  There's nothing better than being his mom.


Thank you all so much for the sweet messages and loving wishes!
