I’m finding it hard to believe that I’m already thinking holiday clothes for the kids, but…yep. Already thinking holiday clothes for the kids.

Put a letter on it with a Jana Feifer custom tote

As we moms know, when your belly and butt are often times growing and shrinking thanks to your kiddos (not just me, right?), handbags and purses are the one thing that will always fit. Well, at least that’s the rationale I’m using to snatch up one of these gorgeous custom totes.  I’m not generally one to wear my name or initials, but for the Letters for Literacy tote by Jana Feifer I will make an exception.

But on the upside, they’re offering a huge (huge!) discount just for our readers while they clear out stock.

Bensimon kids sneakers + Bakker made with love = Beautiful!

My love for Bensimon sneakers is no secret; I wear my own purple pair almost every day. And the kids’ styles are simply adorable. So when their new style collaboration with Bakker Made With Love, well my only wish, after I recovered from the cuteness overload, was that they came in my size.  The new Bakker Made With Love Bensimon sneakers are the perfect little back to school shoe that transitions well from summer playdates to school playgrounds. The reinforced rubber toe is a must for active little ones, and the cotton canvas fabric is hearty and breathable. And since they’re...

Baby bloomers nearly as cute that little butt they’re covering

One of the essentials in my girls’ summer wardrobe when they were babies were bloomers. It was so easy to just toss a cute pair over a diaper, add a little tunic or tee, and we were off. I love the selection of high quality cotton baby bloomers at family-run Kicky Pants, which have the cutest little ruffle detail on the back–just enough to make a statement but not so much that the kid’s butt looks like a wedding cake. (Trust me, we’ve seen plenty of those.) They come in 9 sweet colors including a fun lime green which is now...

Mod kids furniture that looks just like the grownup stuff

Adding to the growing list of things I know now, that I didn’t when I had my first kid: I would have skipped the cheap stuff, and invested in a solid kids’ table and set of chairs.

3 cheers for the Pantone 186, Pantone 12-4302 and Pantone 286!

I’ve always been a sucker for the Pantone licensed products, which let you show your allegiance to lavender or mimosa through desktop goodies. Now, they’re available in folding chairs which are pretty darn great for outdoor lounging season or when you need to pull up a few extras to the picnic table for the kids. While I’ve got red and blue featured right now, on Fab.com today you’ll find 11 gorgeous colors from neutrals to a gorgeous turquoise my kids would beg for if I showed it to them. Though sadly? There is an orange, but no tangerine tango....

Mother’s Day gifts that give back from AHA Life

When we first discovered AHA Life a while back, it was a bit like a high end flash sale site with a new, extremely well-curated item popping up every 24 hours. Unfortunately, the prices were a bit in the “well, a girl can dream, right?” category. Now the site has evolved with more items that are available for longer, and many at prices more of us can afford. Of course this makes it more fun to browse around for great gift picks, and I was happy to find quite a few gifts that give back for a caring mama...
