Here We Go!

Hi! I'm Lourdes Avila Uribe, and welcome to my blog, Light in the Heart. I'm so excited to finally get all the information that I've been gathering for years in my brain on "paper," and share my little bits of wisdom and insight.

A bit about me: I've been working as a nanny for over 10 years, with kids of all ages and different abilities, all over the world! I'm so lucky to have worked for beautiful families with children that have taught me so much and shaped the person that I have become. I come equipped with an arsenal of tools and tips on childcare, products that I love and trust, and a never-ending well of stories, both good and bad. I love working with kids, and hope that my experiences can help you with your own tiny humans.

I am also what one would call a "hardcore beauty junkie." I've been experimenting with skincare and makeup for half of my life, perfecting my beauty routine, and building a makeup cabinet that would be deemed excessive by most. I've done some freelance beauty writing for various websites, and am thrilled to have my own space to share my ideas, newest obsessions, and/or beauty meltdowns.

So that's what you'll get from this space. Babies and Beauty. Sometimes one, then the other. And sometimes the two shall meet as one.  I hope you'll be back and come on this journey with me, where you can expect a positive, lighthearted, accepting, and hopefully informative little corner of the internet.

Oh, and the occasional picture of the world's most beautiful dog.
