For the little guys in your family how about a hoodie, some shades, moccs, and a little flannel (sorry, I had to). The truth is, I’ve never seen a little boy not look adorable in a pint-sized plaid. The Nuby teether, self explanatory for an 11 month old teething monster. And that “homeboy” hoodie from Avenue G, ADORABLE. The shades are from one of my favorite shops, Subsidy Shades. Read all about Melissa’s business venture to help fund the adoption of their second child here. It’s a great cause and I’m so honored to be involved (as their VA rep) in such an amazing cause.
Remember when I said I’ve met some pretty awesome shop owners and people via social media? Well this mama is most certainly at the top of the list. Through the IG rabbit hole, I saw a mommy blogger’s (@blogali) little one wearing these unique leather sandals. I clicked on the follow button for the shop and that was that. Over the past 8+ months, I’ve watched in amazement as @kandelphy has grown her brand. K&Elphy specializes in handmade, quality, and unique leather products.
No, I didn’t forget about our “thing” on Thursdays; GIVEAWAYS. There’s going to be a $600 gift card (of the winner’s choice) up for grabs on IG tonight. Make sure you follow the loop, and all the great shops and accounts associated with the giveaway! All details will be posted tonight at 8PM, EST.
Back to business…TOYS. This year, our main focus is on limiting the amount of “stuff” the kids get. The need for more practical items, that last longer, and activities is much greater than their need for lots of little toys. However, it’s Christmas and they need a few things to play with! Last year, S and I, got Liv this Kidkraft Espresso Kitchen. It only took 7 beers and 4 hours to assemble; It was well worth it. It’s sturdy, the finishes are beautiful, and it still looks brand new. However, nothing is Livie proof but this kitchen has stood the test of time…and Liv. We’ll be going with another main KidKraft item this year and I think she’ll flip! It was just delivered yesterday and I’m wondering how many hours, beers, and glasses of wine it’ll take to put this bad boy together (the picture doesn’t do its size justice…it’s approximately 33″ tall). As for Landon, anything will do, he’s not picky. Here are some ideas we have in mind:
Liv and I both share a love for the color pink. I’m not too particular on the exact shade of pink, I just know I like the color. Liv, on the other hand, loves bright pink. I’m not referring to yourContinue Reading
As I sit here, in my crew neck sweatshirt and leggings, wearing my glasses with unwashed hair, I’d like to talk a little bit about me. Don’t worry, I won’t bore you with all the details of my life (like how long I kept my tamagotchi alive or which limited edition beanie baby is my favorite…for the record its the purple Princess Diana proudly displayed at my mother’s home in its clear case) howeverContinue Reading
Over the past few months I’ve seen subscriptions popping up for everything. From fitness and beauty to pets and babies, monthly subscriptions have given consumers the opportunity to try new products with the ultimate convenience of packages delivered right to their doorsteps. I have a general rule when it comes to new things; If I hear about something 3 times from 3 completely different sources I HAVE to check it out.
Meet one of those things: Hint Water.
BLAHHHHH, that’s how I feel about today. How about you? Don’t get me wrong, I begged Mother Nature for this. Weeks ago I was pleading to the sky for cooler weather, changing leaves, and the opportunity to break out my chunky sweaters (does a huge knit sweater make anyone else feel better about themselves? Nothing lowers my self esteem more than walking past a store window in a sleeveless dress. But, give me a chunky sweater, leggings, and boots…BAM, I feel like a super model walking through the makeup isles at Target *i digress*). Then, MN slapped me in the faceContinue Reading
Part 2 of my Holiday Gift Guide one of my favorite brands, Freshly Picked. If you know me, you know how obsessed I am with their products. Susan is an inspiration and makes some killer moccs. She’s built an empire, been featured on ABC’s Shark Tank, and never ceases to amaze me with her new releases.
Today is the start of the annual Freshly Picked Black Friday Sale. The sale started at 10AM MST and will run for 24 hours (you still have time to grab some goodies!). 26 different mocc colorsContinue Reading
After an eventful weekend…family pics in 43 degree weather with 2 ‘not-having-it’ children, food shopping (with every other human in America) for Thanksgiving while hearing Liv hysterically scream “MOMMMMMMA” for a solid 5 minutes, and (to top it off) I attended an event with my business yesterday and got this text from my husband 1 hour in
Liv’s here to tell you the winner!!!Continue Reading
