Thank you to everyone that has been praying for and checking in on me since we announced our pregnancy (and before for the people that knew what we were going through). I finally have some time and energy, now that my mom is here to help with Oliver, to write a little about what we have been dealing with.
This video has been a LONG time in the making! I have been collecting bags and videos for this for over a year now! This video will take you through my 6 favorite diaper bags and outline what kind of mom would prefer each bag. You can find links to each bag below if you want to purchase one. I hope you find one that is perfect for you!
Dressing a toddler in the summer is one of my favorite things to do! All of the tank tops, shorts, rompers, sneakers, crocs - ah it just makes me so happy! Like any mom, I get sucked in with all the cute clothes over-flowing the big box stores like Target or the mall, however, I've learned that lots of those brands don't hold up well from year to year. Baby and toddler clothes have to be washed constantly which does a lot of damage on cheaper materials.
Last summer I bought most of Oliver's clothes a bit too big in the hopes that they would fit him again this spring and summer. I bought tons of shorts, tanks, and tee shirts from Target and Old Navy, however when I took them out this year, the material was so rough from all the washing and the collars and hems were in rugged shape. I ended up throwing most of them out. They weren't even worth saving for the next child.
So, I decided this year to invest in higher quality play clothes so they will last through multiple seasons and multiple children. Here is my round up of the best shops to stock up on this summer
I've written about cleaning hacks and ideas before, but I wanted to dedicate an entire post to dealing with cleaning solutions I have discovered over the years for those seemingly impossible tasks like getting stains out of your carpet or crayons off of your walls. All of these remedies use every day products that you should have around your home so they are cheep and effective. I hope you can find these useful in caring for your home!
I am sure you have seen my Newlie diaper bag over the past few months if you follow me on Instagram, because I LOVE it! I have the Newlie Louise Backpack Diaper Bag in Black and I firmly believe it is the most versatile bag I've ever owned! You can wear it as a backpack, shoulder bag or tote and you can barely tell that it is a diaper bag. I have been wearing this bag everywhere and wanted to compile a few different outfits that I've put together with this bag. Whether you want to dress sporty, trendy, or just in your good old mom uniform, this diaper bag looks fantastic.
