Review: Wayward Wovens Everdeen

Wayward Wovens Everdeen Tencel and Bourette Silk $$$ Handwoven Best for: smaller babies Carries: all carries I got to test out this new fiber combination for Wayward Wovens and I was extremely excited to try them out. I’ve tried silk wraps before and I’ve tried Tencel wraps – I was excited to see how the two worked together. Bourette silk is tsumugi silk under a different name. It’s the not so silky, nubby, rougher type of silk – which is honestly amazing for wraps. It gives it the texture that is needed so it’s not quite so slippery. But it…

Review: Weird Slings Fly-lahlah Honey

Weird Slings Fly-lahlah Honey 100% organic cotton $$ Machine woven Best for: all babies Carries: all carries I was finally able to play with a Weird Slings! I’ve been loving their patterns – and I’ve been wanting to try one out for a while. They have some of the most fun, and weird, patterns. I think it’s a lot of fun. Fly-lahlah is really soft to the touch. It’s pretty smooth, with not a lot of texture. The yellow/gold is really bright. The pattern is a lot of fun. Birdie and Tot thought the flies were “so cool”. I found…

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…

  • Bring me back to Christmas Day dinner 🍴 I wish I could have some lobster tails 🦞 almost every day. This was such an awesome meal. ⁣
⁣
What do you eat when you celebrate for different holidays?  We do ham on Easter, turkey on Thanksgiving, and callaloo for New Years. I can’t wait for Chinese New Year - that’s my favorite meal 🧧 ⁣

  • The rain is gone! It’s so sunny ☀️ And it’s supposed to be in the high 60s for about a week - so excited 🎉⁣
⁣
The older kids got electric scooters for Christmas🎄 but haven’t been able to take them out because of the rain. Now we are going out multiple times a day. It’s good exercise. No major injuries, yet. ⁣

  • I was so excited to try out these #japanesecosmetics! I’ve heard so many good things about @cureaquagelofficial and it’s always sold out on different websites. I was #gifted these products to try out. ⁣
⁣
The #naturalaquacuregel has been amazing with this winter weather. My skin has not been agreeing with it. It’s so dry and flaky - which has really ceased with the use of the #gentleexfoliator. ⁣

We had a fun Christmas! It’s always wonderful to get together and see everyone. A is already back at work and the kids have cabin fever. They want out, but it’s rainy and wet. They want to play with their new toys 😂🤷🏽‍♀️ ⁣⁣

How did you end up celebrating?⁣⁣
