The Ultimate Diaper Bag

I’ve had a love-hate relationship with the diaper bags in my life. Some were far too heavy, too big, and some not so stylish nor multifunctional for that matter. For all these reasons, I ended up resorting to using a backpack soon after my oldest became a toddler. It was just super convenient to throw over my shoulders and have my hands free. But the truth is the backpack was not all that stylish nor multifunctional. So while searching for a bag that fit all my mom/wife needs, I came across Lily Jade.

 

Lily Jade has hands down the best multi-use diaper bags in the market.  Their Meggan bag converts to a backpack or messenger carry within seconds. It’s made with premium leather and has a beautiful jade color lining. But the best part of these amazing bags is their interior. The organizer (patent pending) inside can be pulled out and it even includes a changing pad that is not bulky. Finally, a pad that doesn’t take up much room and is washable! 

And let me also mention that the high-end quality of all Lily Jade bags really justifies their prices.  Instead of having to purchase multiple bags for going out with your infants, or as your kids grow, for family travel or simply even to go out on a date with your significant other. This bag works for them all! So that’s savings in itself, right?

I took this lovely bag with me recently on a date with my husband and to a blogger conference. Let me tell you. The compliments just kept coming and they were all amazed when I mentioned that it was also a diaper bag. Now – how’s that for a stylish multifunctional bag? Check out all the colors and gorgeous styles it comes in HERE.

And for all the mamás currently expecting, I have you covered on what to bring with you to the hospital. Duckworth NYC does all the work for you with their core product, the Special Delivery BundleBag ™. “It’s a carefully curated ‘Go Bag’ filled with luxury goodies and other necessities that keep you feeling your absolute best during a hospital stay.”

I wish I knew about Duckworth NYC before I had my girls. Having a bundle of my own super soft pj’s, robe, towels, feminine nursing bra, luxurious toiletries and even a Life Factory water bottle would have made a world of a difference during my hospital stay. And did I mention they even have a bundle for dads too? If you know anyone expecting, be sure to check out their site and browse through their build your own bundle options. Everything available is ultra soft and luxurious.

  • #ad I must confess, I’ve always wondered if Mia actually eats her hummus and veggies at school. Every time I ask her if she eats it all she always replies with a quick “yes mom.” And today I have evidence that she actually does love eating her @sabra hummus at school - I suspect the hummus helps get her to finish those veggies! 😉Swipe to see the cute drawings Mia made of her favorite animal and her favorite school snack. Side note, I just realized she’s pretty good at drawing too! Find these convenient Snack to School singles @target in the deli section. #lunchboxconfessions #SabraSingles #SabraPartner
  • Please READ!! Yesterday I cried UGLY. 😭 And when I say ugly I mean full on snot and puddles of water. You get the picture. Let me explain why. .
.
For 6 years, I’ve worked behind a computer and on my phone. My small home office plastered with motivational quotes, vision boards and goals that felt so unattainable. 6  years of hard work, pouring endless hours, late nights, tears and tons of love into my little blog. Followed by rounds of No’s and doors closing in on me. The thoughts of just throwing in the towel and giving up always crept in. But I’m here to tell you even with all of that, I pushed through. Heck I’m still pushing through. But yesterday, two moms that follow me (you know who are☺️) sent me the sweetest messages (I kid you not around the same time) thanking me for all the advice I gave them over the past year and that they are going to be working with their DREAM brand!!! I was so humbled to think I could actually make a huge impact like this on another mom! My heart is so full! ❤️ And then, guess what happened? That dream brand that was plastered on MY vision boards for 6 yrs sent me an email to work with them!! Never in my wildest dreams would I think they would pay me to create content for them but it’s happening! Moral of the story, (promise this isn’t in any way me trying to toot my own horn) just a reminder to NEVER ever give up on that goal even if it seems too far fetched or unattainable! You got this! I’m cheering for you mama! 👏Thank YOU for reading and sending love. And to my village that has always had my back, wouldn’t be here without you. Ok, off to celebrate in my pjs. 😆 Now tell me, if you could work with ANY brand in the entire world who would that be? Or if you’re wanting your own brand what would that be? #KindnessAlwaysWins #WomenEmpoweringWomen #ItTakesAVillage #staymotivated #momblogger
  • #ad If you've been following us for a while now you know that we love how durable and cloth-like @vivatowels Signature Cloth are. They’re perfect for cleaning tough dried on messes, like stove top grime and sticky juice. We were super excited to find the Viva Pop-Ups now that we’re back in school, too. They're the same great Signature Cloth but in a super convenient portable pop-up box. The best part is that one paper towel is dispensed at a time which makes them perfect to grab and use around the house. Especially now with the girls tracking messes in from extracurricular activities! Check them out at the link in my bio! #VivaCleanLikeCloth https://izea.it/aw7D2YC  #morningview #momlife

  • 🏰 What's your favorite childhood memory? 🎡 ¿Cuál es tu recuerdo favorito de tu niñez?

For me, it was going to @Disneyland once a year with my family. I remember my parents saving up for our one-day trip for an entire year. I remember getting to the park right before they opened the doors and staying until midnight. Yet, somehow I don't recall being tired at all. I just remember all the fun times we had. This is exactly how I hope my little ones remember their childhood. ☺️🏰
P.S. Flashing back to exactly one year ago because my first born will be turning 8 next week! Cue in all the ugly crying. Followed by feeling grateful our babies are healthy and overly excited at the fact that we have something magical ✨ up our sleeves! Stay tuned!
