Spotlight: Cleobella for D’Blanc

Ok…so by now you know we are addicted to sunnies, what girl isn’t??  And when you find the right pair, it becomes an obsession.  With that said, today is the day people!!  The launch of Cleobella for D’Blanc.  We first spotted these beauties at a Coachella party we styled for these lovely companies back in April, which you will soon see all of the details of.  But honestly…we couldn’t get enough of these, we had to have them, and we definitely had to be a part of the launch today.  I mean, not only the glasses themselves, but the case and the pretty little ikat cloth that comes with, we died!  Let’s go through and talk about each one…shall we…

But first, let’s hear a little about the collection from the collaborators themselves…

BALI MEETS ITALY

An exclusive collaboration between D’Blanc and free-spirited bohemian label, Cleobella. Combining Cleobella’s handmade Balinese design roots and D’Blanc’s handmade Italian heritage, we’ve created a collection that speaks true to our love of timeless works of art. Just like Cleobella’s bags and accessories are skillfully made with quality materials and sourced locally in Bali, our sunglasses are made the same way in Italy. It’s a meeting of two cultures and two aesthetics that translates into something confident, beautiful and inspiring.

This capsule collection includes three our favorite frames that have been reimagined by Cleobella.

Tanlines
The subtle cateye shape is adorned with hand-set metal studs along the top of this frame complimented with gradient lenses.

Sonic Bloom
A fusion of 70’s style and contemporary cool. Mazzucchelli™ acetate has been inserted between the lens and frame on this is a unique variation of our best selling metal frame.

Champagne Coast
This oversized acetate frame features a warm Havana tortoise shell complimented with rose gold metal eyewire details.

Each frame is packaged with a Cleobella leather sunglass sleeve inspired by its iconic Mexicana collection.

Hi Sonic Boom! These are the ultra cool oversized round beauties.  So unique with the acetate on top of the rims and on the tips.

I had the pleasure of modeling them for you.  They are so fun, light and really send off that boho edge we all need to exude once and a while.

Then there’s the Champagne Coast, which is like your everyday.  Love the gold rim separating the pretty tortoise here.

We had our pretty bestie try these on for size and we know she makes everything look good, but  frankly put they look good on EVERYONE!

Beijinhos Fashion: Harlow Jade

Any mother with a daughter could probably tell you that their little one’s wardrobe is 10 times better then their own. I know that is the case for myself and Leah. Not only is it fun to pick out clothes for them, but they are just so darn cute these days. They really are mini version of something you would buy. A WHOLE LOT different then what we had growing up, right?!? My daughter Dylan’s closet has me wishing I could fit into her size. Jealous party of 1. I started to become a little more picky with what she wears now that she has to wear a uniform. Getting dressed in non-uniform clothes is so fun for her now. She will run to her closet and have us together pick out her outfit for the day, down to the necklace and purse choice. Dylan style is a very free spirited boho look, and she adores it! She loves wearing white dresses…thats my girl! My go to place for her look is Zara. I can always find a romper or dress that will be right at home in her closet. I think like most moms, you are always on the look out for new fun brands.

 Instagram has become one of our sources now for finding gems for our little girls. Leah and I have quite the obsession with that. We love to tag each other when we find that perfect look for our little ones.  A few months back, I did just that. I found Harlow Jade doing my usual Instagram peeking :) We both fell in love with their feed. It is the perfect free spirited boho look for your little girl. Leah and I had to get our hands on some of their spring line for our little beijinhos. They have sizes that range from baby to young girl, which I love! They have a women’s line as well that is so good! They have a couple different tunics and overalls that you can match with your little one. Check out the Mama and Babe sets here. So cute! Might have to get our hands on those matching denim overalls. Gah!

Cue in our little beijinhos models….

Lets start with cutest sisters around!

Edie is wearing the Skyler printed tunic with ruffle hem and a pair of white denim leggings and her gladiators. Essential items of pulling off that boho look for your little one have a pair of some nude gladiators and some white and denim leggings in her closet. Side braid pulls it all together.

Edie is also wearing the Karen white gauze tunic and pair of her denim leggings. I think this is a perfect staple shirt to have! Mix this with all types of leggings and mix around your choices of footwear. You can also lose the leggings and wear as a mini dress or swim cover up! 3 ways to wear is always a winner!

Miss Isla is on high demand these days for her modeling! Can you blame her, look at those eyes! Our little boho lady is wearing one of their rompers, sadly this one is sold out. They have the Rosy Playsuit that is just as cute for your little one! Add a cute textured headband and you have yourself one cute boho bebe.  Their baby rompers are super soft and comfy for your little one to move and shake in. Isla is also sporting their Grayden Knit Jumper. We love the contrast material on the rims of the jumper.

Yay! for being so cute!

meganwelker-outfitsandmama-48

Our last model is very serious about her job. This little one styled her self with no help from me. Yes, yes I know… I’m in trouble! She is already taking my jewelry to wear. Dylan is wearing the Abigail Paisley Playsuit accessorized to perfection of course with necklace, purse, and her mommy’s shades (she couldn’t find hers, and it was a must that she has some sunnies)

yasminsarai_beijosevents_dylanromper-4

yasminsarai_beijosevents_dylanromper-11 This romper is great for summer! Chilly nights add a denim jacket or even a long cardigan. Switch sandals to some booties and you are set to go from day to night.

Spotlight: Plum Pretty Sugar

I first fell in love with Plum Pretty Sugar when I was planning my wedding and bought their robes for my beautiful bridesmaids to wear while we were getting ready, I love the prints and feminine feel they have!  I loved them so much my husband bought me one for Valentine’s Day a few years ago and I still wear it today, however it doesn’t quite fit as well these days being 6 and a half months pregnant!  So I was very excited to see that they have a really cute maternity collection, the Chick and Bunny line.

This collection has some really amazing prints and it’s not just for us pregnant ladies, you can wear it before and after as well!  I like this robe because I feel like it’s a little bit longer than my other one so it works a bit better with my belly right now, I can’t wait to wear it in the hospital after having my new little babe and snuggling him :)

meganwelker-prettyplumsugar-29 Another thing we love about Plum Pretty Sugar is it’s local to us Southern California Beijos Babes, with it’s headquarters right here in Orange County.  Also, have you seen their PPS Couture line for bridesmaid dresses?!  I am obsessed!!!

We reached out to them to get some more info for our readers on this great brand!!  You can also see what each of our picks were form the super cute Chick and Bunny collection below!

How and when did Plum Pretty Sugar come to life?

Plum Pretty Sugar was borne in 2007 to bring breezy and chic style to life.

We love how feminine and pretty all of your robes are, what is the inspiration behind each of the collections?

Plum Pretty Sugar is a chic apparel line. From robes to pretty dresses to rompers and more, each piece is created with an easy sense of style and delicate femininity. We love the classic florals in delicate and fresh colors.

Why is Plum Pretty Sugar the perfect addition to a wedding party?

Weddings are often about prettiness and Plum Pretty Sugar’s feminine appeal lends just that. Plum Pretty Sugar is also a beautiful wearable gift that can be used long after the wedding.

Why did you find it important to create a maternity collection?

We love making women feel pretty and feminine for any occasion. Pregnancy is a special time in one’s life and we sought to bring feminity and breezy happiness to it.

What is next for Plum Pretty Sugar?

We are always day dreaming and creating. We love our new Quell items… the sweetest dresses, tops and skirts in off the shoulder styles. Pretty feminine pieces

Here I am in my pick from the Chick and Bunny Collection, I am obsessed with the color yellow so I had to go with the lovely Magnolia Sol
meganwelker-prettyplumsugar-34 IMG_9790 Leah chose the pretty in pink Penelope Edie, she kind of had to with it having her daughter’s name and all…

meganwelker-prettyplumsugar-14 meganwelker-prettyplumsugar-6 And here’s Miss Abby with her pick, the Harmony Lollie with sweet blue tones…

yasminsarai_beijosevents_beijosrobe-2 yasminsarai_beijosevents_beijosrobe-7 I can’t recommend these robes enough for wedding or baby shower gifts!!  Any woman would love one to call her own!!

Beijos Healthy Protein Shake

To follow up our staying healthy post yesterday, we thought we’d give you a yummy recipe to follow your hard workout.

 I’ve been drinking this easy one for a couple years now and it’s really refreshing and full of all the nutrients you need after you push your body to it’s limits.  Here are the simple ingredients…

Lean protein powder (I prefer vanilla flavor) One Scoop

Berries (strawberries, raspberries and black berries) Handful of each

 One Banana

Fruit punch (secret: use crystal light fruit punch, no sugar and only 5 cals per serving!) One cup

meganwelker-food-12 meganwelker-food-19

If you freeze your fruit it can take the place of adding ice, and you’ll have a thick rich taste to the shake. If you don’t freeze your fruit you’ll have to add ice, which is still good, just the consistency won’t be as thick.

Blend all the ingredients together and your done!

meganwelker-food-28 meganwelker-food-26 meganwelker-food-23

So good and refreshing.  Let me know how you like it…it’s one of my fave’s.
