Review: marisso venus glamour

Marisso Sings Venus Glamour 73% cotton, 22% cashmere, 5% glitter $$$ Machine woven Best for: all babies Carries: all carries I was able to get on the tester list for Marisso Slings Venus Glamour and I was incredibly excited. I’ve wanted to try out a glitter wrap that wasn’t itchy or scratchy – and didn’t bother Dumpling’s skin. This one really held up to the test. Venus Glamour is so soft to the touch. That cashmere makes it feel more like a blanket than a wrap. It makes you just want to curl up and cuddle with it. I wrapped…

MommyCon Weekend

This weekend was SoCal MommyCon. It was held at Great Wolf Lodge in Anaheim, just down the street from Disneyland. I was able to talk A into making a weekend out of it, celebrating Tot’s Birthday a bit early. There were so many different workshops and sessions. It was fun to hear what was going on. Tot Squad was cleaning strollers, there was a lot of baby wearing booths and fun accessories. There was a postcard station where you could send a friend a postcard, which I LOVED. I love snail mail. I also loved that if you posted to…

Review: Rabbit Hole Handwovens Radiant Rose

Rabbit Hole Handwovens Radiant Rose 50% Supima Cotton 50% Rose Viscose $$$ Hand woven Best for: all babies Carries: all carries I was chosen to host this Radiant Rose traveler from Rabbit Hole Handwovens and I was so excited. I’ve been watching Rabbit Hole for a while and it’s a group of 5 incredibly talent people – so I’ve been waiting to see if I could host one of their woven wraps for a little while. Handwovens are a bit of a treat that I don’t get often, so to be chosen to host one has been awesome! Radiant Rose…

Review: Bijou Wear Decadence Skyline

Bijou Wear Decadence Skyline • 100% cotton • $$ • Machine woven • Support: Average • Best for: Any Age • Carries: Great with all I was able to check out Bijou’s Decadence Skyline when another wrap came to visit and this did not disappoint. This wrap is so fun! It’s a double weave, but don’t let that scare you. It honestly doesn’t require any breaking in at all. It was extremely soft when it made its way to me. Decadence Skyline is extremely supportive and I could get Tot (4 years/44 lb) up in a ruck. The double weave…

Review: Wild Slings Jardin Secret

Wild Slings Jardin Secret • 50% organic Pima cotton and 50% organic Egyptian cotton • $$ • Machine woven • Support: Average • Best for: Any Age • Carries: Great with all I have no words. This wrap is SO soft. Like blanket soft. Like I didn’t want to send it off soft. It completely surprised me. This completely gorgeous wrap is Wild Slings Jardin Secret. It has flowers, birds and even a little snail on it. The snail is my favorite. This wrap is soft and pretty thick. It was wondrous on my shoulders. I didn’t have to worry…

Review: Lolly Wovens Heron Anturium

Lolly Wovens Heron Anturium • 80% Cotton, 20% microtencel • $ • Machine woven • Support: Average • Best for: Any Age • Carries: Great with all I was chosen to host one of Lolly Wovens American testers and I was eager to check it out. I’ve only seen the company on Facebook – they have giveaways, and I was curious to check them out. The company is located in Europe and their wraps tend to be on the less expensive side, which I can definitely appreciate. You can get up to a size 7 for under $100! Heron Anturium…

  • We pulled out our @appleblossomwovens Black Agate Tencel wrap for this chilly weather. It’s been cold and rainy, so the extra coziness of Tencel has been great. ⁣

Black Agate has been one of our favorite monochrome wraps ever. 🖤 It truly speaks to me. I can’t wait for Reflection to be released which is another monochrome wrap, with a kaleidoscope weave. Both white and black weft are speaking to me. M

  • Who is always at the ready to take somebody’s head off during the holidays? 🙋🏽‍♀️ Just look at me wrong or finish my favorite dish and it’s over. ⁣

The social anxiety is real and @socialcbd has really helped during this past holiday week and the upcoming festivities. Thank you #SocialCBD for helping this mama out during the holidays. ⁣

  • Obsessing over @squeezamals this holiday season! The picnic pack was the cutest addition to our Squeezamals collection. Everything came for a perfect picnic lunch. ⁣
⁣
Dumpling loves the texture of the squish of the Squeezamals. She is always found with one in her hands. ⁣

If you’re interested in grabbing some for your littles, check out your local @walmart!

  • I volunteered in my daughter’s classroom for Thanksgiving. I helped on the food line so I had to tie Dumpling to my back and make turkey sandwiches. We do teach the kids that we don’t actually celebrate Thanksgiving, and the teachers discussed the truth with the kids. I’m glad I didn’t have to step in like previous years 🤦🏽‍♀️⁣
⁣
My tote bag from @shopkindredtogether is my favorite though. I’m able to fit everything in there. A quick link to the shop is in my profile & you can use code APRILOCT to save 💰 ⁣

  • We were so lucky to be able to check out the Flip & Spin for the Win bundle - thanks to @PowerYourFun. The bundle included Laser Launchers (which I can’t pry out of Tot’s hands), the Mini Cyclone Stunt Car, and Turbo Tops Gyro Cars - which you see pictured here. These are our favorite part of the bundle, the kiddos are constantly try to do tricks with them. ⁣

Thank you Kaliber Global Toys for this awesome gift! #sponsored #PowerYourFun #TurboTops @apexdropofficial
  • Yesterday was my birthday! I’m thirty-something (the something is silent 🤪) and it was a good day. A made it back from a 10 day trip just in time to celebrate. The kids were so excited to make mom’s day fun. ⁣⁣

My sister always grabs a red velvet bundt cake for me and I love it. It’s my favorite. My grandmother used to bake me a red velvet cake every year when I was younger and it’s important to me to have it. ⁣

Here’s to another revolution around the sun ☀️
  • I posted about the awesome @pjmasks PJ Masks Seeker about a month ago. I grabbed it at @target and kept it hidden until it was Tot’s birthday. He had already completely forgotten about it & it was a wonderful surprise to open on his day 🎂 He’s been playing with it nonstop and his sisters keep trying to get a turn. ⁣

Thank you to MomSelect for gifting us this toy. It’s the perfect toy for this @pjmasks obsessed family. #ad⁣

  • My middle child. My wild child. He’s officially 5 years old and 1 day. I tried to make sure he had a fun filled day yesterday and now I’m exhausted. This year he decided he didn’t like cake and asked for donuts instead 🍩 ⁣

Happy birthday Tot 💕
  • We saved this Star Wars coding kit for Tot’s birthday and it was a hit! He was totally interested in putting it together and making things work. He’s my little tinker. ⁣
