When I became pregnant the first time around, I was signed to a modeling agency that is named, and specializes in “Expecting Models.” I figured it would be a great opportunity to possibly pick up some extra work (and cash) with my growing belly. Well, while I was submitted and considered for several jobs the first pregnancy, I did not get booked for any jobs until my second pregnancy. During my second pregnancy I was luck y enough to be in the right place at the right time! The place being Miami and the time being about 16...

Repost from Sunshine & Rein Every since I purchased a white button down shirt from Janie and Jack for my son to wear at his little man mustache bash (outfit shown below as look 1), it was an instant wardrobe staple. Not only should grown men have a classic white button down shirt in their closet but so should little men. Here are five ways my little man wears his.   Look 1: With Suspenders and a Bow Tie  Pants with Braces: Zara (similar: here) | Suspenders: (similar: here) | Bow tie: Janie and Jack (similar: here or here)...

A post by 53 Weeks contributor Dr. Andres Bustillo, MD As a facial plastic surgeon, I have seen many things in my career. You name it and I have seen it. Well, so I thought, until last week. A nice and attractive woman in her late forties came to my office to consult about a facelift. As I like to do with all my patients, I conversed with her to get to know her. This may sound superficial coming from a plastic surgeon, but I think this is an important part of “ being able to make the patient happy.” How can you realistically make...

One of the biggest challenges of being a Mom is taking care of yourself. When we were single and unattached to these little ones, we had all the time we needed on a daily basis to primp and go, but might simply run late due to poor time management and indecision about the right color of lipstick for the day! Well, when the early morning wake-ups calls strike via crying or the cute, happy coo’s full with another day of energy, it can be easy to toss our “beauty regimen” to the wayside. I’m definitely guilty of this..I...

Traveling with a baby is easier than you might think (if you’ve never done it), especially if they’re still immobile! ha!! Seriously though, I remember Raef’s first plane ride. I was worried if we’d have enough food, would he cry, what about the recycled cabin air and close proximity to random strangers who carry germs!?! I did my online research, asked around…stressed about how to pack and what to pack, would I have enough of everything he’d need? His first flight was international from Miami to the...

I recently started contemplating on when is the right time to take my boys to Disney. Well since Isaiah is still an infant, I wasn’t necessarily thinking if it was right for him, but I decided to wonder aloud on my Facebook page to see what my circle had to say about it! Raef is officially a toddler now at 16 months, and I am so anxious for him to experience all the fun perks of being a kid and I definitely look forward to all the great places I can take him…Disney being one of them! Plus, of course I’d like to take...
