Your Mom Bod Is Beautiful

Hello, Mama! You have entered a new season of sexiness because your body has brought forth a miracle. In fact, you have nourished and housed a beautiful baby and that makes you awesome. After giving birth, you continue to work hard to take care of and support your family.  Give yourself a pat on the back for being amazing!

Work Outs For Work At Home Moms

Do you want to stay fab, fit and strong but can’t afford a personal trainer? As a work at home mom, I exercise at home or outdoors instead of going to the gym. Let’s face it: we need to be frugal!

Before I had Leon and Lucas, my husband and I would work out at home using the Jillian Michaels DVD (I know, lol!). We personally love her workouts because they focus on strength and agility.

Five years (and two kids later), I realized that I need to be stronger and more fit so that I can feel better and happier in my thirties.  That is why I downloaded the My Fitness by Jillian Michaels app!

Jillian Michaels takes all the guesswork out of fitness and gives you all the tools you need to succeed with her new app:

Here’s what you get when you download My Fitness by Jillian Michaels:

  • meal plans
  • custom fitness programs and workouts
  • fitness support

Customized Programs

Right now, I am doing the Beginner Bounce Back Baby Program. The workout is about 20 minutes long, six days a week. It is non-intimidating, easy to follow and fun to do. I just use an exercise mat and a foam roller for stretches. My favorite part is the cooldown because it shows you how to stretch properly. Stretching relaxes my body and soothes my aching muscles. Oh, and the program also comes with a meal plan. The recipes look healthy and delicious- definitely not boring (i.e. baked pita chips and guacamole, South American salmon…yum)!

Here are some examples of customized programs:

  • Fitness For Beginners
  • Wedding Warrior
  • Yeah Baby! First Trimester/ Second Trimester and Third Trimester Program

Here’s The Best Part:

You can work out anywhere and cancel anytime! This is the perfect app for busy moms who want to stay fit and fabulous!

Bags For Life’s Journey

Are you looking for a stylish and functional travel bag that will help keep you organized? If you think that fashion and function should go hand-in-hand, then Baggallini is the perfect bag for you!

Baggallini’s Story:

One day, two flight attendants decided to build a business making bags that are fashionable, functional and beautifully organized. Their bags have plenty of pockets to help travelers move from place to place. Twenty years later, the bags they created are still the everyday traveler’s favorite brand.

Why I Love Baggallini:

I own an olive-green Baggallini Crossbody Bag. My mother-in-law gave it to me as a gift and I really thank her for it. I really love that it is lightweight, stylish, and has plenty of pockets. It also has card holders, a cell phone holder, inside pockets and three compartments. Because it is so compact, I can put plenty of items inside it. It helps keep my stuff organized. My Baggallini Crossbody bag is very comfortable to wear and can be adjusted according to my preference. As a baby-wearing mom, the Baggallini Crossbody bag is perfect for me when I travel with my little kids.

  1. Clip your hair up top and bottom.
  2. Separate the back of your hair in half.
  3. Use Argan Oil (Try PYT Argan Oil) as a heat protectant- just a little bit on both sides of the ends of your hair.
  4. Use the highest setting (or according to your preference).
  5. Take a piece of your hair (1 inch) and clamp it.
  6. Whip it around and then drag it through.
  7. Do this to the other sections of your hair.

In Alyssaa’s hair tutorial video, she used the PYT Italy Flat Iron and the PYT Argan Oil. Click on this link for more information about the products she used: Shop hair tools at PYT Italy
