Mama Martina Diaper Bag

As a mom, and soon to be new mom all over again, I was on the hunt for a new diaper bag! Since Saylor has been potty trained I haven’t used an actual diaper bag in quite some time. I was looking for something practical, cute, lightweight and affordable. Insert Mama Martina here. I found her site while doing some late night baby gear researching, and I’m so glad that I did!

I was immediately drawn to the basic stripes and the PRICE. They are so very affordable for the size and quality. The great reviews were good to see, too! I love that they come with a changing pad, stroller straps, cross body strap…all of these things that usually make for a very expensive bag.

   

I also love that this company is a small, mama ran owned and operated company! Martina saw a need in the diaper bag world, and filled it! It is always great to know that a product has been carefully thought over and cared about.

  

     

You can shop this cute navy and green on HERE, and it is on sale! Be sure to grab one quick before they sell out. Even if you aren’t in the market for a diaper bag, this bag would work great as a work bag, beach bag, or even an overnight bag. The possibilities are endless! Happy Wednesday!

My Love of Freshly Picked

I have said it many times, and I won’t stop saying it anytime, but I love Freshly Picked! These were the first pair of shoes that fit Saylor properly, and she wore her first pair into the ground. FP is a small company from Utah, was featured on Shark Tank, and all around has an amazing story. They are very active in their community, in the mommy world, and with their customers. I love that!

Recently they came out with a new line of Mary Jane Moccasins. As soon as I saw them I knew I wanted them to be my next babies first pair! They are so very cute…and the scallop detail!? Obsessed.

I can’t wait to put these cute blush pink Mary Janes on the new baby! Blush and Platinum are my favorite colors. They have came out with so many cute and trendy patterns and prints, anyone can find something they love!

What have been your favorite pair of moccs? And what do you love most about them? I LOVE the cute little footprints they get once they start walking. I love that they stay on their feet. And I love that Saylor actually likes wearing them! Let me know what you love about Freshly Picked🙂

 LOL, sums her up pretty well!

Girly Accessories!

As most women do, and especially those with daughters, you can imagine that we love our accessories over here! Give me all the cute bracelets and bows and anything else girly and cutesy. Having a daughter to dress up is THE BEST and I can’t wait to have another little one here in a few months. I’m totally going to be that Mom that dresses them the same…so sue me?! 🙂

        

I recently discovered Gems by Laura and immediately fell in love. All her pieces are well made, timeless, and beautiful. She is also local (to me), which I love!

The 2 that Saylor picked out are the Blush Baby Bracelet and the Mini Freshwater Pearl. They go with everything and are the perfect accessory for any outfit. They also make and sell necklaces for us ladies, which can be found HERE. I love them all!

 Real smile, or fake? You decide haha.

What are some places you mama’s like finding accessories for your littles? I’m always looking for new shops!

Purple Posie Designs

Hi! Guess what I realized today? That it’s been just over a year that I have been blogging here. I can’t believe it has been a year and I’ve had so much fun collaborating with companies and getting to know other bloggers.

Today I wanted to share with you Purple Posie Designs. They create beautiful handmade items such as keepsake journals and journal books. They are made with so much love and detail, and make a great gift. When I was younger I was into scrapbooking, and loved making things like these for different events in my life like high school graduation or Christmas one year. It is such a nice way to store and show your memories. They are very personal, and such an easy way to create and store your memories!

 I love that there are blank pages to doodle and write notes on.

  

Saylor loves “reading” the stories and loves all the fun things to play with on the pages. As she gets older I’ll have her doodle up the story books 🙂 Shop all their cute stuff HERE and follow them on Instagram HERE!

Gift Ideas with Nystrom Goods

Hey guys! If you are like me, you tend to put your Christmas shopping off until December hits. I don’t know what it is, but I hate hoarding gifts! Anyways, the past few years I have made it a point to try and shop small, and support local businesses for at least some of the gifts that I give. This year I stumbled on Nystrom Goods IG page, and instantly fell in love! They create unique, modern, concrete planters that just add the perfect touch to every home.

Here are 2 that I received. I love them and love the little touch they add to my kitchen! They are very sturdy and well made, that is apparent as soon as you open your package. I found the perfect sized pre-planted little succulents from Lowes and just dropped them right in!

Here are a few of my other faves from their site:

ridges-sand-1 Love this larger planter.

bsmall-pattern-grey-planted2 Love this small, textured one.

flutes-setof3-1 And I love this set of 3, which is perfect for a gift!

I also wanted to point out that I have finally started replacing light fixtures in our home, YAY! I still need to find the perfect backsplash.

Anyways, I hope you guys check out Nystrom Goods, and that I have introduced you to a small shop to enjoy! Be sure to follow them on IG over at @nystromgoods also, for more planter pictures as well as design ideas.

How To Make A Diaper Cake

…that isn’t that appealing to the eye, LOL! Note to self, next time I do this, make sure someone else is around to help. Having only one set of hands proved to make things difficult.

So I’m going to my girlfriends baby shower tomorrow, and last minute decided to make a diaper cake. Because, why not? I have never made one before, so I hit up Google, and went off of the tutorial found HERE. I didn’t have rubber bands at home, and didn’t feel like going to the store for them, so I planned to use twine to tie the layers together.

Here is what you need, and you can add whatever you want to it to make it bigger and more cute. I just used what I had!

img_6007

You’ll need a half used roll of paper towels for the center of your tower. Lay out a line of diapers, overlapping like you see below. I didn’t know how long to make each layer, so I just learned as I went. Then start rolling. This was the difficult part with only one set of hands, but I made it work!

img_6009                    img_6008

You can make each layer as thick as you want, and you can always remove diapers when you are done to define each layer better. Do this 3 times. This would have been easier with rubber bands. My layers didn’t end up as layer-ey (lol) as I would have liked, but whatevs!

img_6012

Once the layering part is finished, take whatever you want to it to make it pretty! I just had a cute pin and some ribbon, and thought to use a few packs of wipes as the “base” for the cake. That’s it! It took me maybe 15-20 minutes, and I think is a cute and unique gift idea 🙂

Happy Friday, everyone! Hope you have a great weekend 🙂

Vitamins and More

I recently discovered Smarty Pants Vitamins and was so excited when they offered to send me some vitamins. I am always on the hunt for the best tasting ones (along side the nutritional value), not just for me, but for Saylor too. She is the pickiest little girl when it comes to chewy, gummy things, so when I tried these I KNEW instantly that these were something she would enjoy!

IMG_2443

I received the 3 bottles pictured here. I tried a few of them and can honestly say they are the best tasting gummy vitamins I have had! They don’t have a weird aftertaste and they don’t have a weird consistency. Each bottle has different ingredients, carefully thought out and determined based off what each one of us needs. If you have any questions regarding Smarty Pants Vitamins, they can be found HERE.

IMG_2442IMG_2415

I also need to touch on this waterproof pouch I received from Logan and Lenora. It is the Petit Pouch in Go Spot Go…SO obsessed with this print! All of these bags are waterproof and machine washable! Genius! They literally can be used for anything. Cosmetics, food, diapers, you name it. The Petit Pouch is the perfect size to fit into my diaper bag and fill it with whatever I need for the day.

Our Favorite Shoes…and a GIVEAWAY!

If you know us at all, you know that we love our Freshly Picked moccs. They were the first pair of shoes I had gotten for Saylor, and we wore those babies for a YEAR straight. She had tiny feet as a baby, and they literally were the only shoes that stayed on, weren’t ginormous, and were so cute! Her first pair was PLATINUM and they matched everything! Highly recommend that color.

IMG_6202 IMG_1398IMG_9792

Freshly Picked is a small (well not “small” in the sense of it being little anymore) business out of Provo, UT. A hard working, determined mama started this company all by herself with a few random scraps of leather and has grown this company to be pretty much a household name. This company gives back so much, is always up to do a giveaway, and hosts warehouse sales around the nation so we can score awesome deals if you don’t like paying full price!

 IMG_1369 IMG_1393

A few of my favorite things about Freshly Picked Moccasins are: the colors and prints (anyone can find one they LOVE), the fit (elastic around the ankle is genius), the little footprints they start to get on the bottom after some wear, and how well they truly hold up.
