Oxford Momma Self-Care Subscription Giveaway

Hey! Happy New Year! I’ve had a busy couple of weeks, with the holidays and the family being sick. But I’m back! One of my New Years resolutions is making sure I get some time for some self-care. Sometimes I feel like I get lost in everything I do and making sure I get some time to myself is important. How can you take care of everyone around you if you don’t take care of yourself first? I’ve teamed up with Oxford Momma with a really fun giveaway. Oxford Momma is a self-care book subscription box for moms. We are…

Review: Luluna Slings Unicorn Sunrise

Luluna Slings Unicorn Sunrise 60% combed cotton, 40% micro tencel $$ Machine woven Support: Average Best for: Smaller babies Carries: Great with all! I was so excited to see this woven wrap show up in the mail. I threw Dumpling up as soon as possible. I knew I needed some bright, fun colors in my life. It really helped pull me out of the funk I was in. The unicorn pattern was a lot of fun too. I love being chosen to check out these wraps – I love being able to test them in all different carries. I’ve been…

150th Italian Heritage Parade

Randomly we decided to go check out the Italian Heritage Parade in San Francisco this weekend. It was a gorgeous day – the temperature was in the 70s. It is also Fleet Week, so the Blue Angels were flying over us in different formations constantly. The traffic wasn’t too bad up there. It was quite easy to find parking, much to our surprise. We walked over to North Beach and was able to watch the parade. We were able to grab a bite to eat at Capo’s – which has some of the best food in North Beach. Their tomato…

10 Must Haves for a New Mom

I have been trying to figure out what were the most convenient items I’ve been using since Dumpling has been born. I came up with a list that I’ve been talking about to some other moms about. There are so many different products out there, but these are the ones that have been working really well for us. Newborn Must Haves 1. Dockatot – We love ours! It has been helping us get ready to sleep since day one at home. We use it to get ready for nap time and even just to lounge around. Dumpling finds comfort in…

Review: Marisso Slings Azalea Cherry Blossom

Marisso Slings Azalea Cherry Blossom 100%  cotton $$$ Machine woven Support: Average Best for: Smaller babies Carries: Great with all! I was chosen to host a Marisso Slings woven wrap and I was excited. I’ve seen them around in photos and through reviews, but I’ve never had the opportunity to try one out. I was sent Azalea in cherry blossom and it was pretty amazing! I received it right after having Dumpling and it was the perfect wrap to get some newborn cuddles. It’s a gorgeous wrap that I really enjoyed having here. This wrap is CUSHY. Like on the…

  • This wrap is so beautiful. ⁣

I received Dreamer with a cotton/hemp weft yesterday. This weft is hand dyed by Echo over at @chicibeanz for the collaboration with @appleblossomwovens. ⁣
⁣
The pooling of the hand dyed yarn really makes it looked striped almost. It almost looks like a totally different wrap compared to the black linen weft I’ve been using. ⁣

  • I got surprised with a trip to @Disneyland for Valentine’s Day. It’s so crowded because of the long weekend. There’s even lines for the bathrooms - every bathroom. We haven’t gone on many rides, but we’ve checked out more shows than before and looked around for hidden mickeys. The weather has been perfect too. ⁣
⁣
I hope you’re on some adventures this long weekend. What are you up to?⁣

  • We rarely get to drive over the Golden Gate Bridge. I hate tolls and I also hate driving over bridges, but this was too much fun to not. ⁣
⁣
The kids fell asleep right before we even made it, but I was going to go for it. I’m glad we made a trip out of it, even though the car ended up breaking down. Nobody stopped to help. The few people I did get to ask refused to help 🤷🏽‍♀️⁣
⁣
At least we got to check it out. 🌉
  • Dreamer is a dream. This wrap is gorgeous. I loved being able to test it all weekend in the city. ⁣

  • I’ve been looking for any copies of my maternity photos with Dumpling since I suck and I can’t find my copies. @bijoubabywearing was able to find some of me wrapping Tot in Baskerville Boardwalk and I couldn’t be happier. I love the bubbles in this one. @paintingskies did such a great job with this shoot. My family had so much fun with her. ⁣

  • When your friend @koalacuddlesbabywearing  needs shots for upcoming educational material for @happybaby and you drop what you’re doing at @disneyland to check out their onbuhimos 😂💕⁣
⁣
This Marigold onbuhimo was easy to get in the shoulder to shoulder height and pretty comfortable. I might need to snag one. ⁣
