Celebrating Dads! #LittleVictories

With Father’s Day right around the corner, I love how social media is celebrating dads!  According to Bravado Designs, they recently conducted a survey in which 87% of new moms ranked new dads as the #1 person they rely on for emotional support for breastfeeding. I know this is definitely true for me! I could not have successfully nursed our son for 15 months without my husband’s love and support. It was definitely an uphill battle in the beginning with latching issues, mastitis, and tremendous pain but I got through it! With baby #2 on the way, I know my husband will be there to support and help me again through my breastfeeding journey.

Happy Father’s Day to all your fabulous dads out there! 



Upgrade dad’s shaving routine with Philips Norelco this Father;s Day!

So how do you top the first Father’s Day? With a gift as good as last years, of course and helping him upgrade his morning shaving routine! After much thought, I decided to not reinvent the wheel and give my husband the same gift as last year…what, you say??? Well, he loved it so much that I thought what better than to get him another one for the his van pool and desk at work. Especially with baby #2 on the way, I wanted to find the perfect gift to help save him time and get a clean, close shave! What better gift than the Philips Norelco shaver 8800!


My husband works at least 10 hour days and leaves the house around 5 am…so it was logical to get him the Philips Norelco Shaver 8800 for his desk at work. The Philips Norelco shaver 8800 would definitely help him change his morning routine by being able to get more zzz’s and waking up later as it cuts the time he spends shaving. It is worth every penny especially if he gets to spend more time with his family and less time on grooming.

I decided on this shaver because of the JetClean system that not only washes but also lubricates, dries and chargers the shaver. The UltraTrack head has three tracks providing a close shave and up to 60 minutes of shaving time (approximately 20 days)! I especially love that it can be used for a dry or wet shave.

So if you are looking for the perfect Father’s Day gift…look no further! This gift is seriously the best gift for your husband, dad, grandfather or father-in-law in your life! Happy early Father’s Day to all you amazing dads!

First Father’s Day

It’s my husband’s first Father’s Day and I wanted to get him an extra special gift from me and C. He is seriously one of the hardest people to shop for because he is really picky and likes to buy stuff when it is on sale.

I went through the list in my head. The first thing that popped into my mind was Star Wars…maybe a book or figure? But I wouldn’t even know which one to get let alone what’s a good price. What about a car cleaning kit? BBQ grilling set? New clothes? No, no, no…I wanted the perfect gift to make his first Father’s Day extra special. Then it came to me! A fancy electric razor!



It was the perfect gift! My husband has never splurged on beauty essentials and this will be his first electric shaver. Second, he cut his face pretty bad TWICE in the last month. The razor (which will go unnamed) had one of the blades pop out and cut his face…the replacement blade from the same pack did it too! It was pretty bad; I reported it and sent the razor back to the company to investigate.
I did some research and found the Philips Norelco SensoTouch 3D shaver. I liked this one for my husband because of the three shave track flex, tilt and pivot system creating a faster, closer shave (and no more blades popping up and cutting him!) This is great because he shaves at least three a week for work and the less time he spends getting ready in the mornings means more time for him to sleep in. The LED screen in the front is perfect for his early (4:30 am) weekday morning routine – great for tired eyes because it will easily tell him when to clean, replace the head and battery life! He’s such an amazing dad because even after a long 10 work day he comes home and plays with our son. I love that it can be used wet or dry and it has a cordless shaving option – great for if he wants to shave in the vanpool during his hour commute.
I can’t wait to give him this awesome gift! I know he is going to be thrilled! Baby C and I can’t wait to give him lots of kisses after he tries his new Philips Norelco SensoTouch 3D razor!
