The Shower for @BabushkasBebe - Blessings All Around. #MundoLanugo #AVENTparents #WinnDixie #Ford

This is BB's thank you card to the wonderful brands who sent gifts for BabushkasBebe baby shower.
Our appreciation can't be expressed enough- though Babushka is certainly gonna try.

HolaHolaHola My Beautifuls!!!

At 1 am Sunday, my daughter Babushkas Bebe went to the hospital with contractions.  Turns out it was a false alarm, but before it becomes the real thing and I'm an abuela for the 5th time, BB thought this would be a good moment to write about the baby shower.  Actually, not so much about the shower as much as the gifts given by some very special folks.

The first to give to the shower was Ford.  
Without them there was no way all the preps, nor the party itself would have been possible.  

Fabi the Fabulosa- and she definitely was!!

Gracias to Fabi, BB was able to get the supplies to make the centerpiece diaper cake. And gracias to blogger friends Ana of +Miami Mommy Savings and Tiffany+Broward Saves ; through their Tweety Fiesta I was introduced to @WinnDixieLatino who in turn was able to give me a  +winndixiestores gift card.  By the way, talk about a giftcard and place that has so much to offer!! 

So now mi hija and future grandbaby had Kuddles products and a toy, but what about the other necessaries??  Here another blogger bella, Erica aka @MamasMission  introduced BB to the wonderful folks of @AVENT_US .  They were darlings who made sure to send my daughter bottles, pacifiers, and a state of the art baby monitor. 

And for those of you who don't think a baby monitor is a necessity... please read up on La Princesa.

Now the last group of presents come from a company who BB has written about before.  Babushka has personally met and become amigos with the owners of this company and cherishes that friendship.  Upon receiving the gifts my heart was touched and eyes teared.  This is not a big company, yet they shared their cariño and gifted Babushkas Bebe their quality goods, wishing the family and new baby love y bendiciones.  LANUGO


Just seeing that video BB knows she's surrounded by bendiciones, by blessings.

My daughter, my child who is happy and looking towards the future.

Companies and Beautifuls who believe in and enjoy Babushka.

To All of you and for All of you.

1000x Gracias
de ♥.


P.S.  And if y'all think that's all I'll be writing about the above gifts/companies.

No mas hiding for BB!! ZYRTEC® Fall Season 'Allergy Face'

Babushka wrote this post as part of her participation in a blog tour for Latina Mom Bloggers on behalf of ZYRTEC® ALLERGY FACE® and received compensation to thank  BB for taking the time to participate. However, all opinions expressed are purely Babushka's.

HolaHolaHola My Beautifuls!!!

Another season change is coming and with it,the allergies.  Above you see how Babushka used to handle them, not too well. This Latinita needed to be out there doing my daily dance, pero no could do. Eyes would water and puff up, and then BB would get drugged out with the medicines used to combat the swelling and pain.  Right now Up North in The South, Fall is ready to make itself known.  Pretty soon the leaves and the temperature will be falling, but not BB! With the help of ZYRTEC® and their ALLERGYFACE® campaign with makeup artist Jackie Gomez, Babushka will be Bella y Bright Eyed- and rewarded for it!!

Looking Fresca AND a coupon?? ESO!!! That's definitely a twofer BB can get into!

This is the look Babushka will recreate.  The object here is to detract from watery eyes.

Por Supuesto looking nice is wonderful, but if you end up as a sleeping beauty you're not gonna get much done.  Here are the points that has BB poised to take this allergy medicine.

    • ZYRTEC® Dissolve Tabs can be taken anytime or anywhere because they dissolve in your mouth without water and provide allergy relief for 24-hours. They’re perfect for someone who is on the go!
    • ZYRTEC® (cetirizine HCl) is the number one allergist recommended brand among OTC oral antihistamines.
    • ZYRTEC® helps relieve the allergy symptoms of sneezing, runny nose, itchy, watery eyes and itchy nose or throat.  These symptoms can be caused by allergy triggers such as dust, mold, pet dander, tree pollen, weeds and grasses.

  • ZYRTEC® starts working at hour one on the first day you take it and provides 24-hour relief.
Again BB must say,  ESO!!!  
What a welcome relief this allergy season will be compared to those before.

How will you be welcoming the new season My Beautifuls??
