A Pop of Pink! | LoveMelanique

These days it is popular to follow the monochromatic trends, but I love just throwing a pop of color into my looks. Colors make me happy! While the neutral tones such as blush, nudes and cremes are in, I still love color in my outfits. Whether it’s a purse, a pair of earrings, a pair of shoes or even my sunglasses, I love using these things to spruce up my look! I hope you guys like this look. 

I wore a light blue pinstripe shirt, with hot pink shorts and pink Manolo Blahnik shoes. You may recognize them from everyone’s favorite girl, Carrie Bradshaw from Sex in the City! I recently purchased this hot pink 25cm Hermes Birkin bag and it is literally the perfect size for me! I will be doing a blog post on the Hermes bag in the near future. Stay vibrant and beautiful and always remember to add a pop of color to you life!

Femme en Rouge | LoveMelanique

I’ve noticed that red has been a hot color this fall, and I’m loving it! In the Bahamas we don’t experience fall weather, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t use the fall color palette! I paired this silky, red blouse with a pair of moto jeans, some red Giuseppe Zanotti heels and a cherry, red Chanel purse. The Chanel purse pictured on this blog post was one of my birthday presents from my fabulous mother! I’d love to know what colors you are loving this fall?!

What I Got For My Birthday! | LoveMelanique

I have been incredibly blessed this year! I have a 4 month baby boy named Jake (for those of you who are new to my blog). I am getting back into doing what I love the most and finally starting my beauty brand. I couldn’t be any happier! 

It’s a trend now to get a brand new car that accommodates your new bundle of joy, before he or she gets here. Although that originally was my plan, I was so stressed out coming towards the end of my pregnancy, I just said forget about it!
Fast forward to 3 months later, babe says to me it’s time to get you a new car. He’s the type of person that doesn’t like surprising me because he’d rather get something that I really like, than to surprise me and I end up hating it. So he let me choose the car that I wanted and all of the detailing and I’m so in love with it! I’m sharing it with you guys because I got so many questions and emails about what I got for my birthday.

My car is a Mercedes Benz CLA 250.

Love Melanique!

Birthday Girl- LEO’S RULE! | LoveMelanique

 I want to start this post by saying I am so blessed and so fortunate to be able to see another year of life. Not only did I have an amazing birthday, but I received the most beautiful present I could ever ask for, which was my son Jake Lucas Gotlieb. He came 2 1/2 months earlier of course, but I couldn’t be any happier. In addition to baby Jake, I received a few other gorgeous presents, that I will soon share on the blog.

My lover took me out for a romantic dinner at one of my favorite restaurants in town called Shima at the Island House. We started off with a few drinks by the outdoor bar overlooking the pool and then headed inside for dinner. I wore a blush pink lace dress from an Italian boutique, Louboutin heels, a blush pink Chanel purse and all jewels from B’Jou Classique. I styled my hair in a curly ponytail, because I wanted a hairstyle that would combat the humidity of summer. 

I hope you guys enjoy the look I wore for my birthday. To anyone who is celebrating a birthday in August, I hope you have a happy birthday! The night was fabulous and one to remember for years to come! 

Love Melanique!

Jake’s First Swim! | LoveMelanique

Jake is now 6 weeks old and we got the go ahead from our doctor that he can go for his first swim in the ocean after he was all healed up from his circumcision, which he had at 8 days old. She said that we should wait until he’s six months to take him into the pool because of the amounts of chlorine. 

We got Jake all lathered up in his ‘Think Baby’ sunscreen and this really helped keeping his sensitive baby skin from being sunburned. As baby’s skin are still so sensitive at this age and their temperatures can easily drop, we didn’t keep him in for long periods of time. Once we got him out we washed him off in normal water and immediately wrapped him up in his towel and allowed him to rest for a bit. We repeated this about 3 times. 

He absolutely loved his first swim and I firmly believe that it is a result of LOVING bath time so much! It was an amazing experience watching our son take his first swim. It was the first of many more things to come. Please share your baby’s first swim experience!

Love Melanique!

Welcome to the World Jake Lucas Gotlieb! | LoveMelanique

We are so happy to formally introduce everyone to our nautical, island baby, Jake Lucas Gotlieb! These photos are from his one month photoshoot. OMG, I cant believe it either; my little boy is already one month old! For his one month shoot, I went with nautical, sailor themed outfit because not only is it so adorable, but he is an island boy who lives on the beach after all. 

I shot these photos in his nursery with my photo equipment. Here’s what I used to shoot:

Camera- Nikon D5200
Studio Photography Soft Box Lighting Kit- PBL Studio Lighting Kit 
Studio Photography Backdrop- Slow Dolphin
Product Photography Table- ePhotoInc Product Photography Table 
Faux Fur Mat- OULII Baby Photo Mat

We all know taking pictures of a newborn is NOT the easiest thing today, so we have to find ways to make it work. That being said I think they came out great and absolutely LOVE them! Let me know what you guys think and I hope that you enjoy the photos of Jake! 

P.S.- You guys know I had to throw a few screaming baby faces in there, and I think it is just the cutest thing EVER!

Love Melanique!
