accessorizing is the key






I have realized that buying new clothes when you are trying to lose the baby weight is a waste of time. 1. you hate yourself because you are buying a bigger size than what you actually think you are. 2. you hate everything you buy anyways because its just to get you by for the interim. 3. you get more depressed that you have to spend money on new and bigger sized clothing when you should already be back to your old clothes (that pre-baby closet filled with beautiful clothes that has taken you years to curate). Now I am stuck and what do I do with my shopping addiction??? I buy accessories.

I'm back


Sorry for being MIA on the blog...I know its been a very long time since I last posted, what can I say sometimes life just takes over. My lack of posting first comes from my lack of time to play dress up on the blog. Its probably because my recent attire has come down to rocking workout clothes and runners. Instead of shopping for couture I have been at the check out line of Lululemon.
My second reason for my absence is the launch of my baby clothing line Bebe Fete. After having Mason and dealing with his eczema I wanted to create a brand that was super cool made of fabrics that wouldn't irritate his skin. So after some researcher and my design skills I (plus my good friend Marty) create a cool street style baby clothing line with bamboo cotton. Bamboo cotton is the softest fabric, and it has antibacterial and anti static benefits which is perfect for a baby like Mason to wear.

Pimp eats- Stuffed Acorn Squash with Pesto Zoodles


Being healthy with a busy schedule can be very tough. Life is already hectic and with all of its food temptations it can be so easy to eat unhealthy foods. So I have found that meal planning and committing to a plan can really help. Recently I was introduced to Whole30 and started to adapt my meals around their philosophy. This one isn't in their cookbook but its something I've created based on the rules of  the Whole30 plan. Hope you enjoy!

Stuffed Acorn Squash (4 Servings)
Ingredients
- 2 large acorn squash
- 1 pound of grass fed ground beef
- 1 onion
- 1 apple
- half a pack of bacon (around 10 pieces)
- 2 tsp fennel seeds
- 2 tsp ground sage
- 1 tsp salt
Directions
- Preheat oven to 375 F
- Cut the squash in half and scoop out of the seeds. Than rub the inside of the squash with olive oil and place onto a baking sheet and put it into the oven for 30 minutes.
- Dice the onion, apple and bacon. In a large skillet cook the bacon (before it is fully cooked) than add the onion and apple. Once the onion is translucent and apple is fork tender transfer everything into a large bowl.
- In the same skillet cook the beef and add fennel, sage and salt. Once fully cooked add it to the same large bowl.
- Scoop the mixture into the squash and put it back into the oven for 15 minutes.
TIP: Everything can be cooked a head of time! When you are ready to serve all you have to do is put everything together and pop it in the oven, so its great for a last minute healthy dinner.

Pesto Zoodles
Pesto
Ingredients
- 1 clove of garlic
- 1/2 cup walnuts
- 2 handful of spinach or kale
- 1/4 cup of olive oil
- salt and pepper
Directions
- Blend everything together and serve on top of anything you desire, in this case the zoodles below.

Zoodles
Ingredients
- 3 zucchini
- 1 tbsp olive oil
Directions
- If you don't have one of those fancy turning slicer than you can us either a grater or vegetable peeler to cut your zucchini.
- Heat up the olive oil in a large skillet, than cook the zoodles for a couple of minutes. The texture of the zucchini should be al dente- crunchy not mushy.

trying out the top bun






Finding time to groom yourself while taking care of a new born is extremely hard, so trying to upkeep my hair and find a chance to go see my hair stylist is almost impossible. Instead I surf Pintrest in the middle of the night as baby Mason is on my boob to see how I can stay on trend. This is how my top bun was born :) I look back to when I was pregnant and remembering getting advice from moms telling me to go to the salon before I give birth, I thought it was an exaggeration and never listened...well now I really regret it. I mean I could leave the baby with my mom or the nanny or even both, but then there are other factors like what happens when I'm under the hair dryer and my boobs gets engorged? Plus I just miss the little guy too much after being away from him for more than a couple of hours. So even if I have the time I don't even want it. This is the many struggles of a new mom
