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…

Review: Emmeline Textiles Juno Squares V2

Emmeline Textiles Juno Squares V2 • 100% cotton • $$ • Machine woven • Support: Average • Best for: Any Age • Carries: Great with all! I received Emmeline Textiles’ Juno Squares Version 2 in the traveler program and I was excited to try it out. Their program has a lot of options for caregivers to check out all kinds of wraps. I haven’t played with Juno Squares yet, so I wanted to play around a bit. Juno Squares V2 is a thin wrap. Very thin – but not in a bad way. I wouldn’t consider the shoulders to be…

Celebrating Chinese New Year

The Lunar New Year is one of my favorite holidays. I love the family getting together and huge meals. I also look forward to the Chinese New Year Parade that happens every year in the city. Even Birdie’s school does a little something for it. Last year was a huge assembly. This year, we did a parade. It was a lot of fun. Cold and wet – but we made it work. I’ve been wearing Poppet Slings’ Soho ring sling during the festivities because it’s he perfect shade of red. I make sure the kids are always wearing red –…

  • Running towards the weekend, like... 🏃🏾‍♀️🏃🏾‍♀️🏃🏾‍♀️ Little Miss Dumpling is always on the go & she’s so fast. Sometimes I can’t keep up 🤷🏽‍♀️⁣

What are your plans for the weekend?⁣

  • Anyone carry around their hair stylist on their back? No? Just me?⁣

This @2lambie reverse onbuhimo is our favorite when we go grocery shopping. Dumpling is high enough where she can see everything, but not quite touch anything. ⁣

I got a chance to check out @heritagedistilling’s award-winning BSB @BrownSugarBourbon and it is simply delicious. It’s got that brown sugar taste with just a hint of cinnamon, which makes it the perfect drink as we transition to autumn.⁣
⁣
The brown sugar flavor is amazing with that bit of light sweetness. It really helps pull in those favors in cocktails. We made a Blackberry Smash (blackberries have been on sale since it’s season!) and a Rickey (who doesn’t love a Rickey?!). They really complemented our weekend meal.⁣

Thank you @heritagedistilling & @brownsugarbourbon for gifting me these products! #DrinkingBSB #BrownSugarBourbon #sponsored #ad
  • I would love to be a @magnatiles brand rep! It’s one of the toys that work for all the ages and my kids get along so well when they’re playing with them. I have three kiddos - Birdie (8), Tot (4), and Dumpling (1). We reside in the SF Bay Area of California.  #2019mtbrandrep
  • It’s a new blog post! I reviewed @rabbitholehandwovens Radiant Rose up on the blog ✨ it’s magical! And we were so sad to see it go. ⁣

Also shout out to @gleafulpresets - this picture was dark and almost unusable. 😂 now it’s one of my favorite shots.⁣

  • I’ve been holding off on posting these @dermae products because I wanted to try them. I’ve placed them on my tattoos and on Birdie’s scars from boo-boos over the summer & they work AMAZING! They keep your skin so moisturized and the scars have been fading nicely over time. My tattoos are looking nice and bright. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thank you @dermae for gifting me these products! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
