June Turns Three || Princess Elena of Avalor

Elena of Avalor Birthday Party Disney Blogger
This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Disney Channel and Latina Bloggers Connect.

My baby girl turned three the other day, and although we already had her birthday party (joint party with Scarlett here), we always still celebrate the actual day. Disney was awesome enough, as usual, to send us some party supplies just in time for her birthday.

Princess Elena of Avalor. 

Let me tell you why she’s special. She’s the newest Disney princess but she’s also the first Latina Disney Princess. :) Awesome!

See some snippets of the new Disney series below.

“Join Princess Elena as she swings into action and takes her rightful place as Crown Princess in the kingdom of Avalor this summer on Disney Channel! Step into an enchanted fairytale realm inspired by diverse Latin cultures and folklore where every story is bursting with music, magic and mystery. With the help of her younger sister, Princess Isabel, her grandparents, Francisco and Luisa, and her friends by her side, Princess Elena will learn to boldly lead with bravery, courage and compassion.”

Elena was the name of my grandmother, so obviously I already love her name. The kids cannot get enough of the catchy Latin inspired music in the show. The girls immediately start dancing and singing along as soon as she begins playing her guitar. And yes, she plays the guitar, how awesome is that??

A musical princess. YES! We LOVE her!

We have family members who are musical, so my girls already have a strong desire to play musical instruments. They think Elena is really really cool so far. She’s a strong-willed princess who is protective of her family and wants to do everything on her own. She is an independent, passionate young girl. All the things I wish for my girls to be.

Our Mommy & Daughter Photo Session

Mom Blogger Review Mom & me Session

I have been wanting to do a mom-daughter photo session since forever. Before I was pregnant with Lennon I had always dreamed of a mommy & me session, then I got pregnant with Lennon and I knew it was going to be the last time it was going to be just us girls. I even considered doing a shoot while I was pregnant but it just never happened. But finally…finally we were able to setup a session with the amazing Sarah Naselli Photography and I am so excited to share these photos with you all!

Apertura

Apertura sync phone photo app

Are you like me in that you take so many photos of your family that there are literally thousands of photos buried somewhere on your phone or even your computer and you don’t know exactly where they are? You remember the moments, but when it comes the time to search for them you can scroll and scroll and scroll endlessly and still never find them. I take so many photos, not just for myself but also it’s really my job. Being a social media mom I take photos daily for the website, Instagram and product and promo photos for companies. For a while now, I have wished for a better way to organize all my photos.

This is my current phone storage. 6,120 photos right now and I swear I just got this phone. Photos stack up so quickly.

Apertura sync phone photo app

When the maker of Apertura contacted me about reviewing the Apertura photo app I was excited to learn that this app does just what I have been needing! Apertura is an app that finds all those photos, securely stores them and organizes them for you so you can see any of your pictures from any device with just a couple of taps. The app syncs all of the images that you have on any your devices including old computers, phones, tablets and laptops. The app also detects when new photos are taken and will organize those too! So it’s easy to go back by by year, to month and even to the day the photo was taken. :)

Apertura sync phone photo app

Apertura finds new photos on your devices, syncs and organizes them. Download Apertura on your phones, tablets and computers. Whenever the app detects new photos it will automatically upload them to your account and organize them by the date they were taken. You can add your own tags to add more organization and make them searchable.”

I love that you can even add tags to make your photos searchable!

Apertura sync phone photo app

Download the Apertura app here. It’s currently compatible with Windows 7, 8 & 10 or download it on the iTunes App store.

And it’s coming soon to Google Play for all you Android users. :)

Cafe Breaks Coffee Flavored Pudding Cups + $250 Walmart Giftcard Giveaway

Cafe Breaks Coffee Flavored Pudding Cups
This is a compensated campaign with Cafe Breaks and Acorn Influence. All opinions are my own.

Each morning I wake up early, before the kids get up and start my work day. Being a work at home mom is challenging. There is always someone needing something and it’s not just the kids. I am also busy trying to manage deadlines and demands of my job. I am fortunate that I get to make my own schedule, but that does mean starting my day before the sun comes up if I want to work uninterrupted.
