Welcome Whitesuggar

I have an A*M*A*Z*I*N*G handmade accessory shop to introduce you to today,
Your going to find ENDLESS amounts of gorgeous hair accessories for little girls in this shop! Shop owner Yudelca offers a wide variety of accessories from headbands to bows, to clips, to beautifully adorned hats. Everything is hadmade and gorgeous. Take a *peek*

I always like to feature just a little bit more about my sponsors so you can get to know them a little better. This is why I love the handmade market place because each and every item has a personality and a story behind it. Here's a little more about shop owner Yudelca,

"It all started two years ago, with the birth of my princess, Sadie. She inspired me to create hair accessories for her. I tried to search for bows and accessories everywhere at affordable prices but couldn’t get what I really wanted for my little princess. As a stay-at-home mom, I started to do some research on how to create bows and where to get supplies, etc. I said to myself: “This shouldn’t be so hard”. So I started creating and I loved it. My dear husband and friends loved how cute my daughter looked with the accessories. I came across Etsy and did my research and gave it a shot! To my surprise, I got a sale the 2nd night I opened my shop. This inspired me even more. And now, 1 year later, I can say I have a home business which I owe entirely to my dear husband and daughter."

If you like what you see and would like to connect with Whitesuggar and Yudelca you can find her on {FACEBOOK} and get a behind the scenes look by checking out her {BLOG}.
The great news is Yudelca has offered to give bouffe e bambini readers a special discount code. You can enjoy 15% off you entire order by simply entering the code
"Welcome15" at checkout.
Please help me give Yudelca and her shop Whitesuggar a very big warm welcome and hop on over {THERE} and have a look around. Don't forget to take advantage of the great discount!!
Happy Shopping Lovelies!!!



Here is my sweet little Ginger Grace at three weeks old! Her skin is peeling a little so don't mind that:)
I am so grateful for her. She is such a lovely baby. She is a much easier baby then little Milton was. 
We are still learning and adjusting as a new family of four but things are getting slightly easier. I am learning how to multi task like no other!!! I thought being a nurse I had to be good at multitasking but this puts that to shame. You should see me some days, it's pretty hilarious. I've got Ginger in one arm and Milton in the other while I'm trying to make lunch, change a diaper, and wipe a face.
I spent most of my days sitting on the floor now so little Milton feels like I'm still right there with him while I can still taking care of Ginger. My back has seen better days but I'm sure as I loose weight and gain strength it will get better.
I am pleased to report that I am only 2 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight with Ginger. Unfortunately I am 60 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight with little Milton but it could have been much worse having been pregnant for 2 years straight.  So now I will begin the process of loosing all this pregnancy weight and I couldn't be more excited! 
I have been gazing into my closet full of size 6 jeans and high heels for 2 years now and I am DYING to get back into my cute clothes!!! So, I might start doing a weekly or monthly weigh in post. We'll see how it goes. I am also considering running again. There is a half marathon I would love to run in October. We'll see how this goes too! 
Anyway, that's my latest update. Here's my darling little GG!!!

Her G*O*R*G*E*O*U*S headband came from one of my favorite accessory shops Giddy Up and Grow. Find her shop {HERE}
