I was lucky enough to host Bijou’s Decadence Rouge for a bit and it was marvelous! It was a TRUE RED wrap. I have the hardest time finding the perfect red. Sometimes it’s more pink, sometimes it’s more orange. But Decadence Rouge was RED. It’s been dubbed the Harley Quinn wrap and you can definitely see why. As a bit of a comic book fan, I wish I could keep it for any future Comic Cons.

Decadence Rouge is a black double weft wrap. This double weave is glorious! It makes it feel like a nice marshmallow on your shoulders. It’s got that memory foam cush that I love for my heavy toddler. There is limited give, not much stretch — it is a bit on the dense side. Notably thicker, but that’s the double weave I was talking about. It is a solid wrap – I didn’t have to readjust Tot when he was up for a good amount of time. Rouge is a bit on the warm side because of this, as well.

I love wraps that are base -2, so I was excited to try out some of my “shorty” carries. One of my carries that I love to do is the torso wrap. That helps me figure out whether or not I need to constantly tighten or readjust. I didn’t have to at all, during our 45 minute weekly grocery shopping trip. The wrap is a little bit on the bulky side, but I can see it softening up with more use.

This wrap isn’t quite a workhorse wrap, pulls can happen with the weave. The dark colors do make me want to wear it everywhere though. I also don’t have to worry about it picking up dirt. Rouge is cotton, so I wouldn’t have any issues throwing her into the washer (but don’t forget to contact the company for specific washing directions!).

Rouge is grippy! The microtexture on this is spot on! The passes take a little bit of work to get into place, but a little shimmying here and there never hurt anyone. The texture is there, so the passes lock in once the carry is complete. My little loved running his hands back and forth on it. Rouge is currently retaining its shape, but I can see it getting floppier with more love.

I’m sad it’s gone, but I loved it when it was here. Rouge was available for preorder, which I wish I got in on.

  • 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. ⁣

  • 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. ⁣
#ad - Thank you @teamkano for the gift!⁣
