Baby Envy

January 15, 2011 2 comments

Hi my Baby Biters,

Britt Here. I know I have been a bad mother and neglected you all. But the thing is that if you really were my babies I KNOW that I’d be a great mom. I’d stay up with you at night if you were restless or get up early if you were hungry. I’d sing Guns N Roses: Sweet Child O Mine and play my La Vie en Rose music box for you if you were sleepy. But the fact is that I only have you my biters and I do love you but I do have baby envy.

You think they'd notice if I took him?

As if I were Kim Kardashian and I were itchin’  to steal my sisters baby (Not really Kim- don’t kill me. This is just for Haha’s). This week I started getting suspicious about my lady parts. I was doing things there were unexpected, things that were making me the nervous. So I quickly took out my handy dandy google and started searching my symptoms. After doing so I still wasn’t satisfied with what I had found online so I took out my birth control pamphlet. I knew there had to be something about my symptoms in there, I opened up the dang thing and there my symptoms were in black in white. Nausea, changes in appetite, SPOTTING. I was sad yet relieved. My dreams of tiny baby clothes and exaggerated baby names floated away like an interrupted daydream. Then again my worries of rent and bills and car payments came rushing back to me. My husband would kill me if I were pregnant. He’d kill me then rejoice. Luckily for me, I have many friends with beautiful babies. Babies I can borrow, babies I can spoil, babies I can LOVE. BABIES I CAN SHOP FOR!!!

With that said, I wanted to share with you the talents of one of my very best friends- Lauren Coria-Avila. She is one of my baby momma friends with a heart of gold and hands of platinum! Her and her mom Melissa create one of a kind vintage inspired baby garments. They are nothing less than darling. You won’t  find anything like it anywhere. Their line is called Le Coria Bebe and you can learn all about it at http://www.lecoria.net or LIKE their page on facebook http://www.facebook.com/pages/Le-Coria-Bebe/166395030068548
Here Mon petite pixie Lauren blogs about her latest designs and even has tutorials for zinky things such as “tuxedo center pieces” you should definitely check it out!! And of course do what you do best… BITE IT!! Below I have added images of her work, like my favorites: bib with feathered rosettes, Marie Antoinette bib and her Navy Linen Romper. I hope you love her designs as much as I do.

HI BABY BITERS! Long time no blog!

April 21, 2010 7 comments

Hello my baby biters!

How I’ve missed you all! As you know I have been away. So many things have happened since we last spoke. I bought my first car (Mazda3 Hatch in Pearl White- I call  her ZumGAGA), I got a Facebook account (the real reason I haven’t been blogging), and I got a NEW job. I am now ASSISTANT DESIGNER at an active wear company called FAMBRANDS/MARIKA. That’s right I will no longer be answering the phones sorting samples and opening the door for people! I’m moving on up! AND!! Art’s sister asked me to help style a photoshoot she’s producing for her makeup line “Sassy Makeup” by Silvia O. I couldn’t be more thrilled!! Styling is one of those jobs I have dreamed and dreamed about. if one day I could become Rachel Zoe I would DIE! Too bad I don’t have a cool enough name…. anyway… lol.

It’s all very exciting. My life is going in so many different directions very quickly. It’s thrilling, scary, nerve wrecking and tiring. I can’t keep up with it all. But more importantly… I have made new friends that are keeping me busy. Just to show you that life does go on. I once thought I was the biggest loser with some stellar fashion sense but now I can’t go a few days without friends calling me up. And that fashion sense  I was talking about keeps getting better and better. I have realized in a short period of time how lucky I really am. I have people in my life that love me. I never thought that would happen. I have a wonderful boyfriend that makes me happy everyday and I adore his family and guess what?! they kinda like me too! That’s unheard of! So my suggestion to you is enjoy your life! Now is the time to live and be happy! Bite this if you don’t bite anything else! Be happy! Be YOU!

Ok… on to BITEbritt…

If you haven’t already noticed BITEbritt went through a makeover. In my goal to make everything futuristic looking I have changed the theme of my blog to “monochromatic” I feel it’s a much more clean-looking template, which I like.  If you don’t like it let me know so we can work together to make some changes.

Now time for some of my spring fashion favorites round #1

If you haven’t already noticed this spring is all about looking fresh and clean. The bold and bright of last winter is OUT! Proenza, McQueen, neon snakeskin it’s time to move on! Take a look at some of the images I have compiled to give you a basic idea of what you should be doing this spring…

Almost nude lip with pinch of color, cheeks like a doll and bare eyes. Tres chic mon amie!

A Striped tee can look refreshing. This trend is taking over. Try going for a nautical feel. This tee looks great on everyone. You can't go wrong... Also check out my favorite fashion blogger the Cherry Blossom Girl (Girl in photo)

A khaki jacket in beige or olive can make your outfit complete. This is perfect for spring when you just want to throw something over you tank.

Looks like this Harem Silhouette will not leave. Zara has this option of a Harem Jumper but there are other options if this is too overwhelming. You can go for just harem pants or harem shorts- both options will guarantee you a fab look for spring.

The Harem Silhouette is here to stay! Go with a jumper like the one shown here from Zara or go with something less drastic like a basic harem pant or short. This silhouette will keep you cool during this spring fever!

To look incredibly chic this spring think neutral! The colorless trend is all the rage. With pops of color like red, navy and black you're bound to be one fantastical fashionista!

Clogs! What more can I say? They have made a come back as seen here on the Chanel runway. Find a pair that suits your personality. Clogs can look a bit chunky and dull at times but when you work them into your wardrobe they can punch some life into your outfit. Ps. Make sure you can walk in them before buying. I would hate to think that you bought clogs just so they can sit in your closet.

Turn Something Bad into Something Good

November 11, 2009 3 comments

Today I want to encourage all of you to turn something bad into something good.
For example, yesterday (Monday) I did not go to work. I was upset about my great grandpa dying this weekend and my dad leaving to Mexico. I didn’t want to go to work and be dazed and unfocused. It didn’t help that I kept dreaming about being at work not being able to concentrate.

So while I was at home I tried different things to distract myself. I tried to read, I updated the look of my blog (hope you like it), I checked my email. Nothing was really working. I was running out of ideas and then I remembered! I LOVE going on Craigslist and wandering through the site aimlessly. I immediately went to the pet section. I thought that if i looked for a puppy for Art i’d totally be distracted- and I was! I kept looking and looking knowing I was never going to find anything. But I kept on trucking I kept on looking at post after post, after post. Finally when I was about ready to give up I saw IT!!! I saw the ad that would change our lives! There was an ad for four 6 wk old husky/lab puppies. I called Art to ask him if he was interested and of course he was- they are two of his favorite dogs. It was a dream come true. Then I called the number on the ad- they guy never answered- I left a message and continued to write a lengthy email to this guy. I had to have one of these puppies. It was fate, meant to be, written in the stars if you will. When I was finally done pouring my heart out into the email I decided to heat up my lean cuisine (four cheese rigatoni- SO GOOD). While I was waiting for my lean cuisine my phone was ringing without my knowledge. When I came back into my room I was like “OMG this guy called- left no message, I lost my only chance!” A minute later I called- he answered he agreed to let me have a puppy! OMG OMG OMG OMG right?! I called Art, we were ecstatic. Finally Art would be getting the dog of his dreams!! A little 6 week old baby husky lab puppy!! YAY! Now we had to get the directions to Baldwin Hills, call up a vet, figure out where to get dog insurance, take the preventative measures to make sure our puppy would be safe and healthy because of course we ARE NOT having Dodger (the 1st) rerun! After all this was done we got Mikey to come with us to Baldwin Hills.

We arrived at Edwin’s (the man with the puppies) house late (sorry). There were about 5 puppies and there was already a couple there looking at them! OH NO what if they got the puppy we wanted just because they were there first?! When I saw them (the couple) they were petting a black and cream pup that looked predominately husky- this was the first and only dog to grab my attention. I bee-lined to him and immediately picked him up. Of course I wasn’t going to let his little guy get away. I did not put him down until the first couple selected another husky looking dog. In my head I was going “this dog is mine- I hope Art likes him too, EEK.” The other 3 pups where clearly more lab than anything else. There were two black ones and one golden. The dog in my arms was the last husky left. I let Art make the call- nervous the whole time that he was going to choose the blonde over the one my heart already told me was destined to be with us. LUCKILY Art and I were on the same wave length (being soul mates and all we often are lol). He picked the puppy I wanted. Art paid Edwin and we headed home with our newest member of the Tapia- Orozco family. All the way trying to figure out what his name was going to be. We came up with a few Corona, Baxter and Milo. We decided on Milo even though Art was dying to name him Dodger II.

So without further a do I would like to introduce you to our new puppy DODGER (II)- yes yes he in fact is not named Milo *tear*

Isn’t he the cutest thing???? And yes those are blue eyes!!!

Out of something bad (my great g’pa passing) came somehting good (Dodger). Let’s all all take AFI’s advice and dance through misery. Making something bad into something good.
