Kids Fall Staple Shoes

Fall is finally here and you know what that means…

N E W W A R D R O B E!!

Okay maybe not like a whole new one but you know add a few new items here and there, a girl can only dream. I think this is the part that I look forward to the most when the seasons change adding new pieces to my collection and watching my style change..which hasn’t changed at all. But you know whats best than adding to your wardrobe??

Adding to your kis(s) and dressing them in all the cute new clothes!! But this trip we took the our local stores I was on the hunt for shoes. For specific Fall staple pieces. I wanted to get the boys a boot or some oxford kind of shoes and for Kami I was specifically looking for ankle boots.

And I completed our mission and scored a few deals using RetailMeNot. Some of the stores were having deals so I was in heaven. I got them shirts and other little essentials but I wanted to show case what I broke my back for lol.

Like seriously I had a tiny heart attack every single time I saw what I was looking for its like the shoe gods were on my side or something.

Okay so I wont be stingy or whatever, I will be sharing where I got each pair of shoes. Because I want y’alls kids to look fab too! I say this because I feel like some people don’t like sharing where they get certain items from for whatever reason….

This pair is for Kason. I was originally going to get them from the stores website but I am so glad I didn’t it! I got a little discount and I did not have to wait for them to be delivered. I feel like this pair will go with so many things I can dress him up or dress him down. They’re very versatile if you ask me.

Store: Kids GAP

So this pair is obviously for Ms. Kami! When I saw them I just had to get them there was no leaving them behind. Sadly I did not get a discount because the store didn’t have any sales or coupons out there. But beauty is pain (even in the pockets) I love the color and just the overall look. She owns a pair of pink combat boots from the same store and I can tell you guys that they still look brand new.

Store: The Childrens Place

This pair is for Noah, now I feel like these compare to Kasons are a bit different. I know they may look very similar but they give out very different vibes….makes sense? Maybe not but I don’t know they’re slightly different. Same as Kason’s they will go with a lot of outfits.

Store: Tommy Hilfiger

shoes 4

 Last but certainly not least, these babies where exactly what I was looking for! I have been online searching for boots just like this since last month and I’ve had no luck, until now. I almost bumped into a couple trying to get to them so yes the struggle was real. I have no idea why I was even rushing to get to them because the rack was full of them but in my mind I thought otherwise. Anyways I cannot wait for her to wear them. The store where I got them from had so many cute clothes and shoes. I was impress.

Store: Crazy 8

I am not done I wan to get the boys another pair, so I will be back on hunt soon. I am also planning on getting basic shirts and cute jackets so we can layer them.

I’m so excited and cant wait for the kids to wear them, be on the lookout for pictures. Hope you all enjoyed this little post

A Weekend With Us: The Zoo and Another Lazy Sunday

The crew and I took a trip to the zoo this past Saturday. It was great! The kids were so into the animals and asking so many questions. They were seriously amazed to see all the animals and to be so close in personal if you will. Kason and Noah walked the whole zoo while Ms. Diva (Kamilah) chose to take the easy route and sit in her stroller..she’s smart.

We saw a show where they let birds fly all around, it was neat show. I mean I was blown away when a bird flew and took money off a guys hand (donation), and bring him back a bracelet. We also got the chance to feed the giraffes which was my F A V O R I T E !

Besides it being like 90 something we enjoyed ourselves. Needless to say when we got home we all took a much needed nap.

Sunday was another pretty relaxed day. We watched movies most of the day and went grocery shopping once the sun went down a bit.

 Our weekends have been pretty relaxed for the past week or so, because we are trying to adjust to a small change made to our little family.

The kids start school soon so I plan on doing a little individual interview with the boys, to see how they feel about it.

Repping World 101: How To Get Started

I am not too sure if I have shared this or not but Kamilah is a rep for small shops. You’re probably asking your self “what’s a brand rep”, “what does a brand rep do?” and “how can my child become one?”

To answer the first and second question in one a brand rep is somebody who represents a brand and promotes it on social media by taking awesome pictures show casing their work. Sometimes you will be sharing discounts the shop is having as well. In return you will get very good discount and sometimes you will get free items. It all depends on the shop.

It’s like your child becomes a model over night and you are now a mommager, I’ve always wanted to say that!

You will be surprise on how easy it is to become a brand rep. Usually the small shop will hold a bran rep search/enthusiast search. To enter you will usually have to repost the contest picture and then under that picture they will ask you to say why you would like your child to be a rep for the shop. They will also ask for you to say a few things about you child, like their age and personality. Then the shop will go through all the entries and pick their rep team. The size of the teams depends on the shop owner and sometimes she will have different categories. Some shops will start you off as brand fans and you can move up from there.

 Dont get discourage if your baby doesn’t get chosen, it’s nothing against them, keep trying. Kamilah didn’t get picked for the first couple of times I entered her into rep searches. And at first I was like “okay I’m done” but I had to remind myself that we had just started this journey. Kamilah  was finally chosen to be a brand fan for a small shop called leolaskybows. We are still repping for her and we recently became brand enthusiast this past rep search.

We’ve been repping for almost 6 months now and I love it. I try to stick with bows and clothes but there so many stuff you can rep. I’ve met a lot of awesome mom’s and met some of the sweetest shop owners. I love that me and Kamilah can be a part of helping their shops grow. That’s what all this is about helping a shop grow and empowering other women! And I am all for that.

How I feel about Kason starting Pre-K..

 Kason is officially starting school this coming August! I will be a mommy to two kids in school how freaking cool is that?!?

Screenshot_20170606-080804

With this new milestone approaching us i am having very mixed emotions. I’m excited but kind of scared not because I think he will be overwhelmed or that he will cry as I walk away..oh no he will love school and probably be that little kid who waves by to his parents. Like “see ya!”

I’m nervous because I know my child lol I know he likes to play and be himself. Kason is an awesome child don’t get me wrong. It’s just that he has a very energetic personality and he likes to make people laugh. He can be shy but once he is comfortable oh its on! As I’m typing this he is jumping and dancing to Moana while his sister just sits on the couch. Some people can handle his personality while others just sit and watch and probably think to themselves “looorrddd!” But that’s just who he is, he is a very happy, energetic, and all around kid.

He’s very smart for his age and likes to learn new things which comforts me in away. He knows his colors, shapes, and numbers. His dad bought him some mickey mouse cards with colors and shapes and he would sit with him for 30 mins a day going over and over the shapes and colors. Kason loved it, he would bring the cards and ask his daddy to ask him what color/shape was that. He also understands Spanish.

I’m sure he will be fine because again I know him it’s just the pre-k jitters setting in. We still have a few months to go and I have to tackle some of his little habits. Which include him having a bed time. He is a total night owl which is not good at all although he will be going to school in the afternoon I want him to get enough rest and hopefully his brother has an influence in some way. So far that hasn’t worked because Noah is out within minutes after laying down and Kason is still up wanting snacks.

We have some work to do I know that much. I will also be buying him and his brother some books so they can work on them during the summer! *saracasm* Wwoohhoo they’re going to love me!
