Baby Registry Items (Part. 1)


Planning a baby registry was actually a fun experience for me. I started my list in October and did much research on the items that had rave reviews. It’s very important to really invest in the time to review products and other's experience on products that you are interested in buying for your new addition.

Remember to check out my full posts on all items from my registry and baby room under Baby Registry to get all products that might be helpful for your list.

  1. 1. Bassinet $59.99 +
I was looking for something that was portable so I can take it with me while visiting family. This particular one had a lot of great reviews and I was satisfied with the style.

You can find it at Target, Amazon or Walmart

2. Baby Swing $219


The first time I saw this at Target I was in love and I wanted this so bad for my baby! It’s pricey but I love the different motions, comfort and the luxury vibe it featured. It was a huge must have on my list!

You can find at Target, 4moms and Buy Buy Baby.

                                                                           3. Flower Wall $150+


I really got into flower walls because I have been obsessed with shopping on Etsy. There’s so many cool things you can have created for your baby’s room and this signature addition was something fabulous that I wanted to bring the wow factor!

You can buy from the stores Etsy shop
or direct link.

Inside My Maternity Shoot


Happy New Year! I am kicking off the year announcing my pregnancy if you don’t already know. My due date is April 8th but I will have a C-section set for March 25th (Aries, baby girl)!

My IVF Journey: Genetic Results + Gender

March 3 will always be a memorable one because it was an unexpected day. I had my usual morning routine, was having mild menstrual cramps, spent the morning having coffee with my parents and wore a new pink tee that said good vibes. Little did I know that would have an indirect meaning as the day progressed.

Once I got home around 11:45 am, I noticed I had a missed call but I didn’t recognize the number. I listened to the message and it was from my IVF doctor calling with genetic results on our one embryo. (We were expecting to get results by March 16th so this was very unexpected).

I stopped the message midway and didn’t want to listen because the possible news could be bad. I let my partner know that she had called with results and he wanted to delay the outcome in fear of the bad news potentially.We have been wanting since mid November, this process was super long and I just couldn’t allow another moment to wait again. So I decided to go into my dressing room and play the message.

“Hi Chastity this is Dr. Treiser just wanted to let you know we have your results back from genetic testing and you have one normal embryo that’s ready for transfer.
At that moment my heart stopped. This was wonderful news. The embryo was cleared of any genetic disorders everything looks and is healthy. It was the best news ever!

After 20 minutes of crying and jumping for joy and calling my mom and aunt. I had to call the doctor to see what the next steps would be and also to find out what the gender was going to be.
My head was saying it would be a boy but in my heart I truly wanted a girl. Yes, we know we ALL want a healthy baby that’s the main reason IVF is so important. You just want a child at the end of the day. But deep down you still are human and you still visualize what gender you will raise. That thought does go in your mind just like someone thinking of their wedding day.

The conversation on the phone with the doctor was very business, she mentioned possibly doing another cycle because the chances are low when it’s only one embryo. But we have spent over $33,000 out of pocket! And there isn’t another $33,000 to give at this moment so it’s not an option! She went on to talk about a small procedure called a Saline Sonogram (SIS) (checking to see if everything is good in uterus) that I will have to do and to get in contact with my nurse to work out a transfer schedule. I understand this is a money making business that’s what it is. The doctor is doing her job but there was no excitement and I just need to hear the gender at this point. I could think about the next process that was going to be another step to this IVF. So I asked “Did you do a gender testing”? She said yes and if I wanted to know? Mike and I said Yes at the same time. So there was a pause and she said it’s a...And I can hear the first letter out of her mouth was G!! She starts again “It’s a girl”!!
I literally died, and came back to life and cried, and was happy, nervous and was soooo many wild emotions! I just couldn’t believe it. I did it ! IVF worked for me! Even though this was still the beginning of a few more steps I believe that I will be alright! I will be having a baby girl!! And the pink t-shirt I decided to wear that day was confirmation and the whole day was even more joyous!!

My advice is don’t give up, don’t be afraid. Pray, believe and keep yourself positive. God has made us warriors for a reason.
I will start updating the next step of my IVF Journey. If anyone has any questions feel free to email
Hope all you have a blessed day!

Review + Giveaway: The Spatty


I have a new beauty tool in my life that’s definitely going to come in handy. It’s the Spatty! It’s the perfect essential for when you can’t get to the extra product in your beauty packaging. I know it can be annoying when you can’t get the last bit of product out of your makeup/skincare packaging. We all have been there and we just simply throw it away out of frustration. But now you can ease up a bit because the Spatty can give you 25% more usage out of your products before you trash it.

Another great thing about the Spatty is that you can use it for kitchen essentials (jars, containers) paint and even crafting projects. All of the spatula’s are affordable in my opinion at $5.49-$10.99. Some of them come in single packets or duo sets.

I was gifted two packets and I would love to offer a giveaway of the lip spatula to one of my readers!! I think it would be beneficial especially if you love beauty products like me.

Here is the scoop on the giveaway
