My UltraShape Story – Part 2: First Impressions

IMG_0301

If you haven’t read Part I : http://momconfessionals.com/2015/06/skinny-fat-ultrashape-ultrayou/ Before I started my treatment I got a chance to sit down with Dr. Marina Peredo of Skinfluence where I am getting my treatments.  First of all, she’s gorgeous and if you’re going to take skincare advice from anyone, let it be someone you’d want to look like too. If you had to go by looks, I’d say we were in good hands but she’s got the creds to boot too.  In addition to being a board certified Dermatologist, she is also an Associate Clinical Professor at Mount Sinai training physicians on various skincare techniques […]

Call Me Mom BUD (Baby Under Development)!

8F5CD7F5-EE59-410C-874A-44A90FA2D742

One of my dearest friends just found out she is pregnant for the very first time. I am so excited for her to embark on this journey to parenthood.  Just like any first time parent, she’s incredibly nervous and excited at the same time. She shared her news almost immediately, just shy of 5 weeks into it and I silently wished she hadn’t so soon as all the painful memories of my losses came rushing back to me. I know too much. I had to remind myself of the excitement I felt when Vin and I first found out we […]

Chic Moms, Welcome to New York’s Séraphine Maternity!

seraphine

At 20 weeks I had the pleasure of being invited to the Grand Opening of Séraphine at their newest location. Welcome to New York Séraphine! As a first time mom-to-be, I gave no thought really to what I would do for maternity clothing. My whole life I’ve been told “you’re so skinny” and for the majority of the pregnancy “you’re so small”, but I grew to know this thing called comfort in the short stint of being pregnant. I always wore my clothes very tailored prior to pregnancy so the time between me switching from those pants and jeans to […]

Let Your Baby’s First Ride be With Diapers.com #FirstRideHome

IMG_4553

Having a baby is both exciting and miraculous. As a labor and delivery nurse, I am blessed with the privilege of being a part of my families’ joys of bringing a little one into the world and all the emotions that surround this amazing moment in their lives.  While in the hospital, new mothers and newborns are well taken care of by hospital staff and when it’s time for you to go home, we hope that our new families have been given the tools and the confidence that they need to thrive as a family. That doesn’t mean parents aren’t […]

REVIEW: Big City Mom’s Biggest Baby Shower Ever

IMG_3647 (1)

Hi! My name is Latasha, and I am a first time mom-to-be. My husband and I had our struggles with fertility and are so excited to have a healthy pregnancy thus far. It was a long road but well worth it!  Suzanne has always been my go-to person for “all things baby/mom”!  As we approached week 20 of our pregnancy, I figured I better start getting things in order. She told me that her favorite event for new moms has always been Big City Mom’s Biggest Baby Shower and now it’s BIGGER and better than ever. She suggested I snag a ticket […]

Perfect Party Bites with Sonic Drive-In

wings

Whenever my family and I go on road trips, stops to Sonic are a must!  Until recently, there wasn’t many near us despite all the commercials playing on our TV, almost mocking us with its handcrafted sodas, drinks and classics like their chicken club toaster, tots and onion rings.  It was a real treat to make a stop at Sonic.  So whenever we see one, we always make a stop.  What’s great is they serve their menu the entire day, so you want a Chicken Club Toaster at 9 am?  NOT A PROBLEM! I recently had a chance to bring […]

REVIEW: The Armadillo City

peekaboo

A clever name for the very clever Mamas & Papas Armadillo City!  Yes this mom got a chance to review yet another stroller, and this one is love.  If you’ve been following along, you know that I am all about compact.  The smaller packaging does it for me all the time now.  I simply can’t turn back!  The Armadillo City stroller is in their compact lightweight stroller category.  Coming in at only 15 pounds, it rivals any umbrella stroller.  Geared towards city families, I think it also bodes well for suburban families like my own.  While I definitely could get a […]
