Totally un-hair related, but how cute is Gia’s new stroller?!
I decided on a ‘parent-facing’ pram or carriage due to the research (better adjustment/ attachment in the first 3 months) and the aesthetic of course!
After a bit of market research (i.e. Google searches), I quickly came to the realization that my champagne taste would be the death of me yet again. The top of the line prams average $600-$1k. Boo. I finally stumbled upon the First Years Indigo Stroller. It’s reversible, durable and has great reviews. The best part is that it was only $150! So yeah, we’ll be HAUTE at a fraction of the cost… kinda like my Tarjay, H&M, and clearance rack Banana Republic wardrobe.
I took it out for a test run yesterday and Miss Gia loved it! She was super alert for the first ten minutes and knocked for the last twenty. We weren’t out of the house good before the neighbors started inquiring. I’m loving it and definitely recommend it to those of you that must find a way to remain fashionable while carting around precious cargo.
p.s. My hair is going strong! It’s a bit frizzy but I’m still able to wear it down. I’m going to try out the Aussie/Garnier Gel combo again this weekend and report back next week.
I’ve pumped enough milk to feed a village so I’ll be rewarding myself with a glass of Riesling tonight! I’m geeking… my first glass after a 10 month stint! This is about as exciting as things get around here now.
So let me live vicariously through you divas…
thanks!!! It was like 150… from amazon. google First Years Indigo 🙂
Nikki- love this stroller. EXACTLY what i'm looking for. I'm thinking of getting it in the light grey color. The only other stroller i found in a "pram" style that was under $200 i think the bassinet would have to be switched out for another larger seat area once the baby outgrew that. I'd love more feedback on this one. THANKS!
She is gorgeous!
Little Gia is so adorable in her new stroller. Glad you were able to find a stroller at a reasonable price. What in the world did those $600 – $1K stollers look like? Did they have a motor in them?
Gia looks so gorgeous! 🙂
Her new stroller are very cute, and i love the colour.
OMG Gia is sooo beautiful! I can't believe how big she looks already! I think she's ready for her henna treatment LOL God bless her.
Gia looks comfortable and happy in her pram. Beautiful baby!
That is such a cool looking stroller. I love how minimal it is. The look of it reminds me of the Bugaboo Frog, but I like the price of yours much better. You'll have to give us a review on it after using it for a few months!
Nikki-Gia is ADORABLE and that stroller is the business! Glad you are out and about..the walls drove me a little insane after having my little one's. Let's see, my weekend plans include doing me and my diva, Jada Nicole (5), hair, going to my son's soccer game in the hot, Texas heat; homework, and time with the hubby. Oh yea, gotta finish my lesson for the kiddos at church tomorrow. Guess I am a little busy and loving it! Take care and please enjoy a little freedom tonight with Riesling 😉
Hope you enjoy the Riesling. That stroller is super cute and Gia is so precious…what a dollbaby – absolutely adorable!
very, nice stroller…right up my alley (if I had little ones) kinda reminds me of the bugaboo strollers.
What a blessing and bundle of joy. The little missy looks so aware of her surroundings. After yoga class tomorrow, I have a thanksgiving celebration. Church is on Sunday. I usually wash my hair on a Saturday, but this weekend I'll do it on Sunday.
Not crazy about drinking so I'll toast you with a glass of peach sparkling cider that I bought from IKEA.
Gia is a doll and the ride is fly. Enjoy that Riesling. All the woman "Raise your glass and shake your….well you know what. A Toast To Nikki.
Good job budgeting Mamasita and I think you definitely deserve the Riesling. I want to do a deep conditioning treatment under my steamer and make more shealoe butter with my new raw coconut oil. Still on the fence about opening the new jar before finishing my other butters, but I am hoping that my friends will come over and claim my current stash. We will see and be well.
Live, Love, Peace. ~Sweetsop

oh my goodness baby G is sooo beautiful and I love that stroller!I am going to wear a wash and go this weekend I have had my hair up all week.I have been wantingto try mix chicks forever and I finally gave in and bought it. I hope I am not dissappointed! Have a wonderful weekend!
Cute stroller and in my favorite color too. My plans this weekend are pretty exciting — I'm doing my monthly shampoo and deep conditioner on Sunday. The routine starts tomorrow night, however, with a olive oil pre-poo treatment I'll be rocking overnight. I'm stoked!!
Are you worried about the chances of your hair thinning? After the first few months of having my daughter, she's almost 2 now, my hair started breaking off near my hair line. Are you worried about that?
Hi Nikki- just had to say she is a DOLL! and you are a soldier for being able to take care of her, keep you hair in tact and this site…! Kudos girl!
Have Fun With The Drink, Gia Just Grows More Gorgeous!!
ya girl! that's how to roll! I love the stroller and Gia is looking beautiful! I love her name by the way, so simple and pretty. I can't wait to see all her curly hair lol. Anyways I'm glad you're doing well Nikki and although your weekend plans aren't super exciting, I know you're thankful and enjoying what you have because you are truly blessed!
lots of love from my end,
I'd love to be a mama! May have missed the chance:(( Anyhow this weekend I'm taking down a sew in tonight and henna'ing and dc'ing. Then taking the dogs to a doggie festival tomorrow. Then Sunday back to get a new sew in installed. Nothing major. Just heavy chillin and playing in my TWA that I only get to see for a few days every 6 weeks!! (But it's growing so quickly and that's the only way I can keep my hands out of it)
That stroller is jazzy! Enjoy the wine sounds like you deserve it.
Tonight drinks with the girls – going to rock a wash n go. My hair needs a break so tomorrow I'm getting a sew-in (afro kinky hair not straight). Hopefully it turns out good!
LOVE IT!! Whenever I have another baby I wanted a stroller like a Bugaboo stroller without the Bugaboo price and this is really close. Baby G seems to love it!!
I like the parent-facing strollers too, even though I'm not a mom yet. Glad you and the little lady are traveling in style.
I'm hanging with my girls this weekend, probably enjoying my own glass (or 2 or 3) of Riesling =P
Very nice find! Enjoy your weekend and your glass of wine!!
I have no weekend plans as of yet, but maybe I'll let spontaneity guide me.
Look at her, she looks like she approves!
This weekend I'm going to see Resident Evil and going to a bridal shower!
it's date night and hopefully that will include sangria or a margarita since i too have not had a drink in sometime. the baby is gorgeous and i love the stroller. enjoy your weekend!
LOVING the hot stroller!!!!! You are SUCH a cool and trendy mommy, Nikki!!! 🙂
Ohhhhh yeah, and this weekend I am headed to a downtown block party and jazz/blues concert!!! The weather should be perfect for it!!!
she looks like she is thinking "hey this is cool! I like it..I like it ALOT!"
very cute! congrats again!
Wow, how cute! Makes me want to have a baby! NOT! Makes me look forward to having grand kids, once my kids are married and have been married for 3 – 5 years.
Anyway, I am going to DC, and either do mini-twists, or TRY to do an updo. I need a break from doing my hair for a week or so.
I'm all about Tarjay and all my girlfriends know I have an H&M addiction. And I used to work part time at Banana just for the discount, lol!
ITA agree with the parent facing. I was jogging the other day and saw a mom pushing her baby and the baby (facing away from her) was all scrunched down and her head was bent all the way to the side in a really awkard position. I was thinking "I know that baby is super uncomfortable and will have a neck cramp!" LOL
Very cool! And she is so beautiful.
love love love the stroller. Im not a mother yet…lol but i love the parent-facing strollers. I just feel like i'd be a lil paranoid, at least during their first year or two, not being able to see their face…if something is bothering them, bitin them, wat they could be cryin abt. Thats y i dont understand the position for the baby seat in the car. I kno its safer but still….. Anyway enjoy the Riesling. Hmm i think you may need a new section "Mommy and Me". Miss Gia has become quite popular.
Of course her ride would be a fierce color. You and your family enjoy your weekend.
Love the Pram (Stroller), we are trying for a baby, its been almost three years, fertility treatments and loss of twins 🙁
HOwever, we are back on the 'mission' after a break feeling refreshed and ready to make babies so good to know for future a fab pram is available at a great cost!
Gia is beautiful!
This weekend, well tonight, my husband and I are taking ourselves and his little girl Ella out on a date to an amazing Chinese/Cantoneise Restaurant near us here in Portsmouth, then tomorrow morning, Spinning to burn it off lol, then visiting my Nan, then in the eve im 'babysitting' my amazing Pamp (Grandad) so my Mum and her fella can go on a date, Pamps Disabled, almost 93yrs old and needs a lot of care and love (and tormenting!)…Sunday, meeting Dad and Step-Mum for a Sunday Roast (Traditional English Dinner! Yummy!)
Next week, I have my 3yr wedding anniversary party – so all week, practising styles to rock at my party 🙂
Enjoy your wine, lots of love, Kez xx
