Happy Monday beauties! I hope you had a great weekend. Mine was filled with me waddling around town prepping for my baby boy. He will be here sometime in the next few weeks and the hubs and I could’t be more excited! In other news, ever wondered what it was like behind the scenes at The Mom’s View?!? Well, guess what, I have a fun little video that gives you a taste of what my days are like on set. Check out the short and sweet episode below on our latest series called Momma Monday.
First off, sorry there has been a lack of posts lately, I blame it on the baby! He’s sucking my energy these days. In other news, I’m so thrilled to share the latest from TMV Talk with you guys. I had the pleasure of chatting with Sarah Moshman, the creator, producer and director behind The Empowerment Project. Sarah and her team, including my girl Alana, spent a month traveling across the country in pursuit of discovering and interviewing strong females in a variety of diverse careers. I have so much love and respect for Sarah for dedicating her time, money and resources to highlighting powerful WOMEN! Please enjoy the episode below! #ChicksRule #GirlPower
P.S. As some of you may know, TMV Talk will be airing every other Thursday, BUT- we have LOTS of new exciting content coming out, so please stay tuned and be patient ; )
Happy Wednesday beauties! I am in the home stretch of this crazy pregnancy journey and I could not be more excited.

Happy Thursday! As some of you may know my dad is an incredible photographer with exhibits around the world, including one that just ended in Mexico and one that is beginning in Palo Alto this month! He began dabbling in photography over a decade ago and now it’s become more than a hobby, but an exciting passion that’s led him to shoot in a variety of unique locations around the globe.
It is with great pride and pleasure that I share the details of an upcoming photography workshop in Cuba that my dad, Mansur Kiadeh, will be lecturing at this April. (Insert proud happy daughter dance!) His primary area of focus will be conducting classes on Digital Photography Fundamentals, High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Digital Infrared Photography. Sounds cool right!?! RIGHT.
The entire workshop consists of about 10 people and will be from April 19th-25th in Havana. World renowned photographer and curator, Charles Anselmo will be leading the photography expedition. He brings an immense knowledge of Cuba, it’s customs, as well as an exceptional eye for spotting one of a kind photo opportunities. With his guidance and expertise of the city, you will experience events, places and people of Cuba you never knew existed.
Together they will take photography students around Havana exploring everything from culture, cuisine and the malecon. This is a rare opportunity to meet like minded people from around the world that share a love of photography, adventure and travel. If you are looking for a truly unique experience and to gain some exciting new photography skills, check out this workshop ASAP… AND you get to meet my dad, who happens to be AWESOME. Yipee!

Happy Wednesday! Michael and I have a new Baby Diaries for ya. This week we share our experience with our hypnobabies class. The primary focus of our Hypnobabies class is to teach us how to get into a deep state of mediation or hypnosis during the birthing process. As some of you may know I’ve decided to have a water birth at a birthing center… so there will be absolutely no drugs. The idea is that the hypnosis will be replacing the need for anything artificial. This class has been a huge help thus far, and I feel more confident everyday that I’m going to have a wonderful birth experience. I’ve never felt so empowered by a decision. Next month I will be a MOM. Oh DANG!
The latest episode #TMVTalk is live on The Mom’s View and it’s super juicy. This week we gave you over 40 minutes of honest discussion about trust, long distance relationships, snooping and more. Be sure to head on over to The Mom’s View channel and check it out or watch below. Also, in case you missed it, there is very special episode of #2bumps featuring Michael and Casey (Kayli’s hubby). It’s awesome and even includes a diaper changing challenge! Have a great weekend everybody!
I am a firm believer in the push present. What is that you ask? Well, it’s a gift that your baby daddy should give you after you “push” your baby out. Even if you have a c-section you are entitled to gifts! After 10 months (whoever said it was nine is a LIAR!) of an emotional roller coaster ride that includes weight gain, unexplainable tears, uncomfortable pains, swollen feet and a whole batch of other pregnancy symptoms, you deserve a treat! Below are some push present gift ideas that I personally want. If you are preggers, feel free to take this gift guide and casually place it in front of your man so he gets the memo. You DESERVE it!
1) Your new nuggets name on a personalized necklace.
2) Sexy heels you can look forward to rocking once the swelling goes down!
3) An awesome diaper bag.
4) A NON-diaper bag, aka a really fancy purse. You can’t go wrong with Chanel!
6) A spa day.
7) Jewelry- pretty much anything that sparkles!
8) A strong cocktail followed by a spicy tuna hand roll (or ten!)
It’s that time of year again kitties where my mom and I ramble about the best and worst dressed at the Oscars 2014. I decided to throw Michael in the mix this year as well to have a guy’s perspective. All in all I was slightly underwhelmed by the red carpet. No major hits or misses… the highlight for me was witnessing the world’s best selfie. (See below). My top pick for best dressed was Kate Hudson. I thought she looked like perfection. What about you guys? Head on over to my channel to leave and comment and share what your top picks of the night were. As always I hope you have a wonderful day.
