Cold and flu season as a mom can be very demanding, but thanks to my brand partner Rainbow Light, I can take care of myself while taking care of my kids as well. Every morning I take my Women’s One multivitamin, and my kids eat their Vitamin C Gummies to help boost our immune system this season.

Easy Kicks

My babies are not babies anymore. I used to dress them in matching outfits, but they’ve grown up with their own style and personality. So those matching days in this household are rare. Luckily, they share the love for Converse! And I love how they go well with any outfit or occasion. Hope this is something they can continue as they get older.

I got their Converse shoes at EasyKicks - the first subscription shoe service for kids. Starting at only $20/month you get to pick from brands like Nike and Converse. Fresh kicks arrive in a customized box for each kid, filled with tons of surprises and fun. Once your new kicks arrive, send your old pair back to them for donation or recycling. I love how they make shoe-shopping fun for parents with kids!

Ready, Set, Hut with Gorton's

It’s football season and I love having friends and family over to watch the game on Sundays. I always think of appetizers that don’t require much prep time, yet are really tasty. Here my three easy and healthy appetizers with Gorton’s fish sticks and fillets. Enjoy!

momlikethat Gortonsfishsticks.JPG

Fish and Chips

Ingredients:

1 bag of Gorton's Fish Sticks
1 bag small yellow potatoes
1 bag blended cheese
1 teaspoon of kosher salt
1 teaspoon of black pepper
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1 teaspoon of onion powder
1/2 cup of sriracha aioli
2 tablespoons of olive oil

momlikethat Gortonsfishandchip01.JPG
momlikethat Gortonsfishandchip02.JPG

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 375ºF. Place the fish sticks in the oven and bake for 20 minutes. While the fish sticks are cooking, cut the potatoes in half and season them with salt, black pepper, olive oil, garlic powder, and onion powder. Bake them on 375ºF for 20 -25 minutes. Remove fish sticks from oven and let cool for 5 minutes. Assemble the fish and chip by scooping some of the potatoes out, then place the fish sticks in the middle. Sprinkle some blended cheese then put them back to the oven for another 5 minutes till the cheese is melted. Serve with sriracha aioli sauce. These are definitely healthier than the classic fish and chips.

My New Lunch Spot

momlikethat CIAatCopia Pork Ramen.jpg

If you want to scape from the crowd at Oxbow Market, walk over to CIA at Copia and visit the Food Hall right in the main lobby. Choose from wood-fired pizzas, fresh salads, gourmet cheeses, dim sum, and ramen. You can also purchase seasonal produce grown on the CIA’s Napa Valley farms and gardens. Currently I’m obsessed with their pork ramen. Seriously it’s the best in town! Go try it yourself.

A Touch of Leopard Print

momlikethat - dailylook vintage chanel02.JPG

Leopard is crazy on trend right now. I won’t lie, there was a time in my life I avoided leopard, was just too loud and took some thinking when styling it. Now days I love styling it with pops of red, black and denim. So happy is Friday though. Can’t wait to spend some quality time with the familia!

Have a wonderful weekend y’all!

Primally Pure

momlikethat primallypurecharcoaldeodorant03.JPG

When my tween daughter asked me to get deodorant for her, I freaked out a little. In my head I asked: Aren't you still a baby? And why are you asking me to get you something that I have never used in my life? (Yes, I'm very lucky to inherit good genes). The reality is that my baby girl is not a baby anymore. My protective mommy mode was in full swing and I started researching for products that don't contain harmful chemicals. Studies show that aluminum is linked to breast cancer and Alzheimer's and guess what, it's found in most regular deodorants. Yikes!

momlikethat primallypurecharcoaldeodorant04.JPG

Most regular deodorants include artificial fragrances and are made to stop you from sweating. But all that does it block your pores and sweat glands from doing their job. Our bodies are supposed to sweat and get our toxins out. Luckily I found Primally Pure all natural deodorant that truly works. This charcoal deodorant does it all, powerfully protecting against odor while nourishing even the most sensitive skin. 

momlikethat primallypurecharcoaldeodorant07.JPG

Here are the benefits:

  • Natural deodorant contains a small amount of baking soda (less than the original formula and a tad bit more than the sensitive formula) and is fortified with kaolin clay (powerful detoxifier) and non-nano zinc oxide (soothes irritation + combats odor).
  • Contains other good-for-you organic ingredients including grass-fed tallow, fair trade coconut oil, arrowroot powder, beeswax and essential oils.
  • Activated coconut charcoal contains added detoxifying benefits while also deodorizing and disinfecting.
  • Goes on clear and doesn't stain clothes.
momlikethat primallypurecharcoaldeodorant01.JPG

Primally Pure believes fewer is better and using only the most pure and powerful ingredients our planet has to offer. They believe in daily baths, taking time to establish a good-for-the-soul morning routine, spending time in the great outdoors and giving back and serving others. Above all, they believe that beauty goes much deeper than simply skincare - that true beauty is caring for oneself and others, while cherishing and nurturing the gift of life. And that's why I love supporting this amazing company!

I’ve been all over this blazer and feminine dress look lately and so happy it is back in a big way for fall. It’s the perfect mix of classic and chic. 

momlikethat moderncitizen Melody dress04.JPG

Long weekends always sneak up on me specially after back to school and I always forget to make plans ahead of time. We'll be relaxing at home all weekend but in my mind we'll be at our imaginary lake house living up the last of summer. Feel free to bring wine and meet us there or mi casa.
