Guess What! I Got Botox

botox review

This post has been a longggg time coming! If you saw this post here with Artavi Med Spa, you saw I went in for something. I’m finally rounding up the questions I had, as well as sharing my feedback on how things are going.

Let me preface, if botox or any other cosmetic procedures aren’t for you, that’s ok, just skip through this post. If you have considered botox or have some of the questions I had, keep reading and I hope this helps!

On to the questions:

Does Botox Hurt?
No! They do put numbing cream on before the injection. Dr. Desai provided stress balls, but I didn’t even need to use it. They did a few small pokes and I was finished.

How much is it to get Botox?
It can vary from place to place and but is typically charged by the unit. For comparison, I got 25 units, but everyone is different.

Where on the face did you get it?
Great question! As you can see, my forehead still has many many lines, which I will be getting rid of. But I wanted to try it on my crows feet, so I got it there.

How long does Botox last?
For each person itโ€™s a little different because some peoples body processโ€™ it faster than others. However for most it lasts anywhere from 3-6 months. I’m on month 2 and it’s still holding up great!

How quickly does it work?
Full results take up to 14 days. For me, it took close to a week before I started seeing any results, but by day 14, the botox had fully kicked in.

Happy Thursday, friends! PS Has this week flown by for anyone else?! I thought the first week back after 2 holiday weeks would be slow, but nope! Not complaining though ๐Ÿ™‚

I wanted to share my thoughts on the City Mini Anniversary Edition today! Strollers these days have gotten huge, and heavy. Not to mention, SO dang expensive. I’ve seen some that are OVER $1,000….like what?! There are so many to choose from – Full size, travel systems, jogging strollers…the list goes on and on.ย  If you’re in the market for a new stroller, I highly suggest going into a baby story and take a look at the different types in person and see what features your’re drawn to. In todayโ€™s post, I wanted to talk a little bit about our City Mini Anniversary Edition, and give you my full and honest Baby Jogger review.

When I opened our package, it was already late and dark outside, so I started using it inside my house. The first thing I noticed was how well it whipped around corners. Our first stroller was much bulkier, so when taking Ava anywhere, I would have to put her in the car, take the seat off the stroller, fold up the frame, and was sweating bullets after all of the steps were complete. Now that Ava is over a year, I knew I wanted something more compact and lightweight.

One of my favorite features of the City Mini Anniversary Edition is being able to fold the stroller with one hand. A simple lift of a strap folds the stroller down into a compact size, perfect if you have a sedan or want more space in your SUV. My other favorite feature is its generous sun canopy with two peekaboo windows. It provides great shade from the sun no matter what angle the seat is positions. Ava can get uninterrupted naps as the canopy can be opened up 1/3, 1/4 or full closed.

Since the stroller is so light weight (at only 22 lbs), but be aware that if you strap a heavy diaper bag to the handle and get your child out of the stroller, it will topple backwards. If you want to avoid this, the storage basket below has ample room for a small to medium size bag.

With every stroller, there are accessories. These are some of my favorites for theย City Mini Anniversary Editionย are the parent console, child tray, and glider board.

All in all, I’m so glad we have this stroller for the next stage with Ava. It’s convenient, lightweight, and will be perfect for traveling.

Happy New Year!

I hope you had the most amazing

Before we get into my New Years Goals, I wanted to take a moment and reflect on 2018. There were many highs and lows. The highs were seeing our Ava grow into a toddler, celebrating her first birthday, Sean and I’s second wedding anniversary, traveling, and really launching this blog. I landed some amazing collaborations with Coca Cola, Kohls, and Infantino. The lows were my father being really sick, I mentioned this in my stories a few weeks ago, and being uncertain about what the future holds. I’m at this point where I don’t know what I want to do in life. I know I want to be home more with Ava, but I can’t be a stay at home mom. I thrive on being successful (monetarily), and selfishly, I like buying whatever I want when I want.

I’m excited to see what’s in store for 2019. I really want to push myself this year and have an answer to the missing puzzle piece from 2018. My goals for 2019 include professional, family and personal goals.
