L'oreal EverPure Review and Rant

L'oreal Sulfate-Free Volumizing shampoo and Moisture Conditioner
I must say..i'm in love! Well with the conditioner for the most part. I'm just going to do a quick review on this because I don't feel like explaining too much. The shampoo cleans pretty well but you'll find that it doesn't bubble up too much (of course, it's sulfate-free). The this stuff is heaven. At first when applying this in the shower, I didn't feel the smoothness that most conditioners give me, until after I got out of the shower. My hair did not look dry at all, it looked healthy and hydrated. I am sooo not lying! No conditioner has done this for me. So I'll prob. stick with this conditioner from now on. I can't wait to try out the hair masque.
Both of them have some getting used to though, there's like a granny smell to them or I should really say medicinal.

my lil' munchkin is growing up so freaking fast. he only sleeps in this thing btw! crazy i know but he hates his crib, he will cry the moment i put him in it! so this swing is right next to our bed by me now. i put him on our bed in the early mornings though just to give him some flat back.

godiva chocolates from my friend Mitsou. they were Get Well chocolates for having my lil' one!

and ohhh were they good :)
I feel as if some people think i'm so negative about never wanting another baby again. I had a horrible experience and I don't want to risk it again, plus it's not like we can afford having another oneas of now anyways. My body went through so much trauma I had the baby blues for a while there and was scared I would fall into postpartum depression. ..thank God I didn't though. The c-section, they pumped so much drugs into my body I was swollen for almost 2 weeks and even had kankles! nasty, I hated looking at my feet also. They were like monster feet. I felt them pulling everything out of me and stitching me back up, it was awful and I was in tears. My cervix (which I hate to death) has given me so many problems! I thought I felt a lump in my downstairs and I went to get checked today and they said it's just my cervix, still healing and it will take a while to move back up.
I just think people should experience it for themselves before they jump to thinking i'm so negative about never wanting another baby again. I love my little man so much, I just don't want another one. One is enough for me, and i've asked the hubs to make sure he'll be okay with me getting the Paraguard (IUD) and he says he's fine. He's pretty good at respecting my wishes and my body too.

your baby is super adorable!

Sometimes, I think that way too, about only having one child. I've talked to my boyfriend about it, because we don't have children yet, and sometimes I think one is enough. And besides I get to spoil my one baby one day! :)

Tiffany said...

your baby is so cute lol. i wanna eat the choco!!

wow that's pretty scary. yeah don't worry about those people who are so quick to judge you. I don't understand people who can't think outside of theirselves and have empathy for what you've been through. :( you're such a sweet mommy! don't let anyone think otherwise :) <3

Wow, girl Keenan looks so much like your hubbie! (not that it should be surprising I guess. LOL) But it's so amazing how much they can resemble their daddies so young, huh?

You know what - every woman has a different experience with childbirth, and they can't judge you because they didn't feel the pain or trauma that you felt.
You might feel differently in a few years, who knows. But even if you don't, there's nothing wrong with it.

Cheers to your man for backin' you up and understanding.

I dont think your selfish for not wanting another kid. I'm terrified of labor since I'm extremely small I know its not going to go over well.

I personally dont want ANY kids, at all. And it annoys me when people tell me I'm selfish because of it. Its my body, my choice. I just dont think I'm mentally capable of raising another person.

Maybe some day I'll want kids, but as of right now... I dont see it happening any time soon.

Aw, he is so adorable:] And CONGRATS, by the way<3

The Godiva looks de-lish..*snags a piece*

As far as what other people think-pfft! Who cares.

Tell them to try and squeeze a cantaloupe out of their vaginas and THEN they can preach to you.

I am so cheering for you and hope you make a speedy recovery:] Also, you still look glam before and after having your bundle of cuteness<3

Take care then.

MMM, godiva chocolates <3

Even though I dont have kids of my own, I feel the SAME way! I kinda wanna get twins and just get it over with, but the BF wants as much kids as possible (unknown reason why). But seriously, us being Asian and so petite, I cant imagine how much my body will change and or get deformed when I have a baby inside of me.

LOL - I watch that show too. The one where the
couple gave their baby up for adoption was soooo sad, but at the same time, it was a very grown-up thing for them to do. :(

No one talks about the sacrifice when it comes to babies, just the cuddly cute stuff - and this show dealt with it all, good and bad.

Man, my hubbie's not around right now, but when he is here, he is hopelessly addicted to WOW, and I HATE that game w/ a passion. I hate fighting, too, but damn, you gotta demand some time for yourself. He better treat you to a MAC/Forever 21 spree soon!

Some people are just so judgemental and don't understand or aren't willing to think outside of the narrow minded little heads. Don't let me get to you! And they don't deserve any more of an explination than you've already given them. Just because you've decided you don't want to have another child doesn't make you negative person at all. I'm sure you're an EXCELLENT mommy! :)

Cute baby,
I think it's your choice and your body, great that your husband respect and support your decision.
