Thanks to a great friend, I was able to test Emmeline Textiles Eleanor Pearl. Emmeline Textiles is run by two sisters. They use small business mills and dye houses. Everything else is done in home, by them. Eleanor Pearl was the first in their Ribbon Collection.

I am a huge fan of undyed wraps. I’ve been in the natty (natural) phase for a while. When I first saw EP in a photo, I thought it would be cushy (marshmallow status), but it wasn’t. Don’t let that stop you! It is a solid wrap, with no digging at all. I was able to put Tot up on my back for hours with this wrap. There is limited give with this wrap, barely any stretch – which gives you the support you need to hold your child. It is extremely solid.

Just because there isn’t a lot of stretch, doesn’t make it a cumbersome wrap – it just makes it extremely supportive. I would consider this a workhorse wrap that could deal with everything. It’s soft enough to be amazing with a newborn, but solid enough to deal with a heavier toddler. It’s low maintenance and easy to care for. It is tightly woven, so I wouldn’t consider it too airy, but it isn’t a hot wrap. It’s right in between.

I love the texture of this wrap. The pattern consists of horizontal lines, in various positions. The lines help with the passes gliding. It also helps with the grip needed for passes to stay put. I love the bumpiness of the lines. It is a thicker wrap, so the drape tends to retain its shape.

EP is such a great wrap! I love the natty color that it is, thought about trying to get one for my wedding wrap! I had a size 4, so I was able to get Tot into a ruck – which stayed put the entire time. I also did a couple of shepherd’s carries and had him in a FWCC TUB (front wrap cross carry, tied under butt) when it was nap time. It was nicely supportive and it reminded me of a favorite flannel blanket.

  • 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!⁣

  • Pretending there are fall vibes with 90° weather 🍁🍂🎃⁣
We melted at the pumpkin patch this weekend. Now we are hiding from smoke and hoping our power doesn’t go out. ⁣
How’s your weekend treating you?
  • Prism Black went live today and I’m so excited for them to get their new homes. This kaleidoscope weave is so grippy and textured. It really locks those passes in tight. 🌈 💎⁣

  • Corn mazes are our favorite 🌽 We try to stop at one every year and grab some photos at the pumpkin patch. The kids love the corn pit. I love listening to them get along and discuss the corn maze map and answer the trivia so we know which way to go. Such a great adventure. ⁣
