I’m so excited to be joining Babble.com’s brand new Latina blog. I thought I’d take a second to introduce myself. My name is Carmen Ordonez and I’m a fashion expert, TV personality and founder behind the budget fashion blog, Viva Fashion, where I teach women how to look like a million without spending a million.
Last February, my husband and I decided it was time to grow our family, or the “wolf-pack” as he calls it. Two months later, we were blessed with the news that I was indeed pregnant. I still remember that Sunday morning looking down at the two positive pregnancy tests and uttering the words underneath my breath “I’m pregnant….I’m pregnant.”
On January 6, 2013, my husband and I welcomed our first baby boy, Andres Sebastian Ordonez. It’s been an amazing, exhilarating and not to mention sleepless past two months. As a first-time mom, it’s definitely been a learning experience. You see, before having my son I had never even changed a diaper before. Can you believe it? But I’m amazed at how quick you learn and those maternal instincts really do start to kick-in.
I hope to share my journey with you, from managing challenges with breast feeding (trust me I’ve had several) to sharing some of my best fashion and beauty tips, because who says you can’t be a stylish momma! I hope you’ll come along for the ride.
