It’s been over 3 months since I had Baby SBJ. I tried working out and I did for about 2 weeks straight everyday. Then, I had 3 major deadlines all in the same week and working out took a back seat to spending time with the baby and working. Pregnancy has changed my body. I’m curvier than I’ve ever been and it’s been fun dressing my new body. Things I couldn’t wear before, I can now pull off. Take this blue dress, for instance. Before, it was a bit baggy on me. Now? Fits like a glove. Everything just fills me out a bit more. This was my first time wearing heels after having the baby. I chose thigh-high stilettos because I might as well go all out, right? I paired this outfit with simple jewelry and simple hair. It’s still pretty chilly in NYC so I threw on this navy jacket that I love.
All in all, a pretty comfy outfit for a new mom.
So I’m only wearing all black because all my jeans don’t fit, not because I want to appear slimmer. Baby SBJ has left me with some extra hips, butt and boobs. And can I be honest? I LOVE it! You don’t understand. I used to fantasize about gaining weight as a child. As an adult, I learned to accept my body but I’ve always wanted to get some curves. Thanks, baby SBJ!! Continue reading
Baby SBJ is 2 months old this week. Time is flying! It’s kind of amazing but crazy at the same time. He is growing out of his clothes at an insane rate. One of my favorite items for him is the Merino Baby Sleep Sack. It’s a unique piece that’s awesome for many reasons. Here are the 5 top reasons I love the Merino Baby Sleep Sack. Continue reading

One of my biggest dilemmas since entering the world of kids is how to dress an ever-growing child in a way that’s responsible to the environment but still cute. With my own wardrobe, I try to shop as carefully as possible. I went through pregnancy with only a few purchases of black, stretchy clothing that would fit post-pregnancy. Continue reading
I love Facebook. One of my friends posted a link to Bene Caribe on the Book and tagged me. I naturally fell in love. Bene Caribe is a new jewelry and clothing line that hails from my homeland of Trinidad. I love their bright colors and clean silhouettes. They also have an Etsy shop, which is awesome. I snagged the Bene Caribe Wrapped Chain/Belt in Blue Flame. It was only $40. It’s handmade in Trinidad and each one is made to order. I love getting opportunities to support local talent. Trinidad is such a culturally rich country and it’s high time the world found out. I’m super nervous about the shipping from Trinidad but fingers crossed all goes well. I’ll keep you posted!
