An app destined to turn your littles into alphabet-izers, the Wee Alpha Kids App ($3) earned its spot as a Cool Mom Tech Pick of the year, and a medal from the Parents' Choice Awards. It's pretty, eductional, and cheap. I'm in.
I'm having a baby in t-minus 48 hours and I couldn't be more excited. But I also couldn't be more excited to start exercising regularly again and to *hopefully* look good in a swimsuit this summer! That is exactly why this Charcoal Chevron Retro One Piece ($50) will be the first thing I buy once I am ready to whip out my swimsuit and sunnies. I love the retro feel of this one piece and how it will cover me in all the right places! Summer motivation: commenced.
Ferm Living delivers again with their Wire Basket ($125). Comes in five colors for the neat freaks, and snag a wooden lid top things off. Half hamper. Half toy bin. Half table. Half stool. Wholly Gorgeous.
With a trip to Italy just around the corner, I’ve got travel on the brain. We’re planning each only bringing a carryon and since we’ll be staying for 2 weeks, we’ll definitely need to be doing some laundry. I’ve heard great things about these Travelon Laundry Soap ($4). Perfect for doing small loads in the hotel sink.
If your skin show signs of old acne or cuts or burns, there's a cool product for that, mama. The Clearly Corrective Solution ($50) makes a big difference in skin tone at first, and then an even bigger one as usage goes on. Props to that.
Crusts are a big no-no in our house – and if we’re being honest, a good peanut butter and jelly sandwich on soft bread without the crust is pretty darn delicious. My crust-less sandwiches are of the boring rectangle variety, but I’m fairly certain that my kids would be quite impressed with this Bites and Pieces Sandwich Cutter ($10). No crust and a sandwich puzzle that begs to be played with and eaten – lunchtime for the win.
Moms are harsh on phones, and kids are destruction in a hurried flurry. This Kickstarter campaign involves a video of Cambridge scientists banging tools at a cell phone in catchy beats (if you haven’t seen it, go watch!). Thanks to their Rhino Shield ($25) phone protector, their hammers didn’t break the phone, your two year old likely won't.
Looking for a sweet spot for you and your littles to play? The miimalist, bright, and portable Nook Play Mat ($120) is a pretty option. Forty inches in diameter, the mat gives fabulous space for playing and reading - or even napping.
I never minded nursing in public, but it always involved lots of tucking and tugging and (if we’re being honest) probably a bit of flashing. I had the idea with my second child to make a pancho-like cover-up that would go all the way around, covering front and back, but he ended up being a bottle-baby and I never got around to sewing one. Imagine my surprise when I came across these Covered Goods Nursing Cover ($30). They’re exactly what I was imagining, but totally darling and something I’d actually love to drape over my body.
They say money can’t buy you happiness, but sometimes that feels like a bunch of baloney. I certainly think cooking with this Revolution Cookware ($300) by West Elm would make me happier. Three and a quarter quarts of roasting craftsmanship hued in the happiest color on the spectrum is bound to deliver some jubilee.
We have found a great way to edit and decorate your photos with the Rhonna Designs App ($2)! You can buy the basic App that gives you amazing choices in and of itself, or you can upgrade depending on your individual needs. Such a fun way to spruce up your phone pictures and to WOW all of your friends, family, and followers!
Project Kid ($17) is the most awesome, well-rounded crafting book. Ever. It contains inspiration about infusing your littles with a love for creativity, how-to's for 100 easy-to-do crafts, and instructions for making your family's own DIY Kit (so that when little crafters are ready to party, it can happen)!
Sofie the Giraffe is the ultimate go-to baby toy, full of french finesse. But did you know Sofie has a baby brother? The familial resemblance is striking considering he is adopted (ahem, giraffe and deer). FanFan the Fawn ($21) gives a masculine version of Sophie for the all world to enjoy.
I have a couple friends who are cruise bound in the next couple of weeks and while I’m jealous of their tropical vacation plans, I’m not so envious of the motion sickness that inevitably comes the moment I step on a boat. These PSI Bands ($16) definitely sparked my interest – they’re centered on the ideas of acupuncture pressure points locate on the wrist and are said to relieve nausea associated with motion sickness, morning sickness (pregnancy), anesthesia and chemotherapy. I'll take one magic band, please!
St. Patrick's Day is coming up and I have found the perfect home decor for your house! These handmade Shamrock Signs ($12) are made from reclaimed wood and distressed to add a little holiday charm to your home. You're welcome in advance...!
