3 Style tips for new moms, free samples and a giveaway!

So I´m not so much of a new mami anymore. My baby is already in daycare! Time flies! As a fashion and beauty writer, I know that when you have a baby you need not only to LOOK good when you are out and about. You also need to FEEL good. So here are my tips to get both when you not only have to deal with yourself but also a baby, a diaper bag and maybe your handbag.

1.- Wear flats.- At least at the very beginning, it helps to ditch the high heels. You´re going to be pushing a stroller, carrying a bundle of joy and if you need to run after your toddler, flats are a much better option!

2.- Swear off white.- Yes, I know white and ivory are beautiful colors. I love them! But unless you want to risk getting them seriously stained, save these great tones for later on. I wore a lot of black and gray as a new mami for that reason!

3.- Wear comfy undies.- Even if you love thongs and cheekies, for a while you´ll be better off with comfy undies. Choose cute ones, like boxers, not granny panties. And to make these even comfier, add comfy liners to preserve them! the new U by Kotex Lightdays Liners are a wonderful choice.

New Silky Serum Foundation for Impecable Skin Care.

Originalmente publicado en Effortless Beauty & Style:

INTENSIVE SKIN SERUM FOUNDATION - SOLO Intensive Skin Serum Foundation by Bobbi Brown. SRP: $61

Not all foundations are created equal, and it takes forever to find one that will do it for us. There is so much to consider when shopping for a foundation that we might as well try to get one made to fit. Yet, that option is not easy to come by or feasible.

We have become very demanding of a product and are spoiled by the variety of products in the market, and therefore expect to find that perfect product, which is a baffling and trying endeavor to say the least. How many foundations must we try to get the perfect match? Too many. Our grandmothers had it easier, but with a downside; they had to make do with the simple powdered chalky makeup available which mostly dried up skin and was just that; chalk.

Save your undies and get a free sample of U by Kotex®

I love that it’s spring! I’m a beauty and fashion blogger and also the mom of a little boy. This means I get excited about change my wardrobe and pulling out of the closet lighter clothes, and even white pants! I love experimenting with new makeup trends and spring fashion, including  beautiful new undies to go with my lighter clothes. I also get to enjoy weekends at the playground with my son during this time of the year.

The only days that any of these fun activities could turn into a potential disaster are the days of the month when I’m on my period. Because I have an irregular flow, I’m never quite sure of what kind of feminine protection to wear. And this has resulted in having to discard more than one favorite pair of undies. It’s not only a question of cost, but the fact that maybe the undies were a gift, maybe they are a seasonal style, maybe I just don’t want to have to drag my little boy to the store to stock up on more underwear. And then risk having to throw it away again because of leaks during that time of the month.
