Review: Bijou Wear Stella Wonderland

December 31, 2016 8 Comments

I decided that I needed to get one more review up before the year was over. Bijou Wear’s Stella Wonderland was the perfect wrap for the job! It goes on sale tonight at midnight over on their website. Their chatter group on Facebook has games and giveaways going on tonight for NYE!

I was able to test out Bijou’s Stella Wonderland before release and I was so excited. I’ve heard a lot about Eco2, but haven’t been able to try out a wrap that was made with it. On first glance, the coloring was right up my alley. It was this perfect soft blue with ecru. The fun retro star design with Bijou’s subtle logo really reminded me of snow against the sky, as their website states.

Let me just say, I love the texture! Rubbing my hand on the Eco2 side, you could feel all the little slubby nubs. It really reminds of the silk blends that are out there. The ecru side is really smooth, which gives you multiple options when you wrap. It was soft when it arrived, thanks to its first tester, but I can tell that it’s gotten floppier in the time it’s been here.

I’ve done multiple carries in the week or so that Stella’s been here. I will say that it wraps a little short, due to the thickness of the wrap. It has some weight to it, which was nice in the cooler weather that we’ve been having. I threw Tot up in a double hammock and Giselle’s back carry – which was extremely supportive. He felt weightless and it was comfortable. I had no issues carrying him around the mall for hours while I was Christmas shopping. I didn’t encounter any digging and I didn’t have to readjust at all. I even got the chance to throw Birdie up – she’s 5 and 63 pounds now. I put her up in a simple ruck, just to see how the Eco2 held up. Stella was still comfortable! Stella just didn’t sag at all. It was so supportive.

Being able to wrap with Stella in this colder weather has been amazing. It’s extremely snuggly, almost like the most comfortable blanket that you own. I can see that Stella will shine in shorties and ring slings – maybe during the warmer months. It’s that supportive. The texture is my favorite part. I can’t get over the little nubs. I’m thinking that Stella might have to stick around for a little while longer.

  • 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

  • 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. ⁣
