New Edition


I have been MIA from blogging and am so excited to share the reason why. On December 5, 2016 I gave birth to the most amazing little boy Luciano. He has been keeping me busy these past two months, but I am excited to add mommy to my list of titles. 

Luciano is my rainbow baby. For those that do not know what that means a rainbow baby is a baby born after a miscarriage or other loss. The term comes from the saying “after every storm comes a rainbow.” And he rings true to that name. I had a miscarriage in January 2016 and it was one of the hardest days of my life. You never know how much you want something when it is taken from you. However, I am a firm believer in that the Lord works in mysterious ways and that everything happens for a reason. And now I am so thankful and happy to say I am a mommy to an amazing baby boy. 


It’s crazy how life changes once you become a mother. People talk about it, but it’s even more surreal when you experience. Not only do you go through intense hormonal imbalances for nine months while you are pregnant, but it continues after you give birth. Then the physical changes put you through a whirl. In my case I had a c-section birth so that came with some recovery and healing, but it wasn’t as bad as the horror stories that people told me. Once you get home you get to experience the psychological and emotional changes of your new role in life, balancing out who you were to how you will be now, how you will be as a girlfriend/wife, going back to work and al while trying to get sleep. It’s been a roller coaster ride, but one I am so happy to be on. 

So I am happy to make this announcement to you guys and will intergrate my glam mom role into the blog so please stay tuned for those features as well some other fun ideas I have been working on. 

Here’s to a new year with new experiences with my new edition!

A Perfect Sunday 

As I lay down to get ready for bed I sit and reflect on the day. I have to say today was such a great day. I don’t know about you, but I love a good brunch! After sleeping in later than normal today a friend and I went to The Iron Monkey in Jersey City, NJ.

  
This is my second time at The Iron Monkey and I was beyond pleased today. When you walk into the restaurant you don’t realize how big this place is because the bar is on the bottom, second floor is inside dining and one more flight up is the rooftop dining area/bar. The ambiance, vibe and breeze on the rooftop area was fabulous on this beautiful summer afternoon. And the $2 mimosas made our time there even sweeter!

The brunch menu did not disappoint. Tons of creative, innovative and delicious options to choose from such as buttermilk pancakes, shrimp grits, T-bone steak, chicken and waffles and more. I was craving pancakes and a side of extra crispy bacon and my friend got the steak, hash browns and fresh spring salad. We both loved our dishes !   

Since it was such a gorgeous afternoon we took a stroll down by Exchange Waterfront. I’ve never been down by this area and the view of the skyline was perfect. The 9/11 memorial of the iron from the tower was incredible. All the boats were out on the water along with people on jet ski’s it was a great day to be outdoors. I like the beach, but I love summer in NYC and surrounding areas it’s my favorite. I could walk around, people watch and look at all the buildings all day.

   
 

  

I usually work at the salon on Sunday’s so this was a refreshing and fun change of pace for me. Perfect weather, good food and good people made this day pretty amazing!
