Marisso Sings Venus Glamour

  • Best for: all babies

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 Dumpling in a front wrap cross carry and she felt ultimately weightless. The shoulder passes were really cushy – not diggy at all. There’s a limited give with Venus Glamour, with a tiny bit of bounce. It’s a pretty solid wrap, due to the denseness of it. There might be a tiny bit of relaxing, but not much that I noticed.

The thickness of this wrap makes it a bit cumbersome. The knotting was hard to handle, but I can imagine that getting easier with time as the wrap breaks in. But it made a big knot that felt hard to tighten.

I would say that Venus Glamour is more on the delicate side with the content being 22% cashmere. Definitely recommend following Marisso Slings’ washing instructions. Also the glitter threads are a bit pull prone, so please be careful with jewelry when you wear this one. This wrap is warm and I think it has to do with the fact of how dense and blankety it is.

I had an easy time with the passes. They were nice and glidey but the glitter gave great texture to help lock those passes into place. The glitter doesn’t make it overwhelmingly sticky though.

This wrap is so soft and snuggly though. It felt like an amazing blanket and I just wanted to curl up on the couch with it. The wrap was retaining its shape a bit, but I can see that it was on its way to becoming floppy.

The design is a pretty design, looking like a lace pattern across the wrap. Both sides are equally as pretty. I just chose to wear the side with the more visible glitter than black.

I love being able to check out this wrap! I love how glitter and Stellina look in wraps but I’m always afraid how it’ll feel once in hand. But now I know Marisso Slings has soft glitter – who knew that was possible?

Thank you to Marisso for letting us host this wrap. It was great to have.

  • 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. ⁣

  • 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. ⁣

  • 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. ⁣
