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!

The Best Sheets Ever!

I am about to change your world…especially if you have kids. Not kidding! If you have never heard of QuickZip Sheets, go visit their site now. QuickZip sheets are a 2 piece fitted sheet. Once installed, the base remains around the sides of the mattress and never has to be removed. The zip on sheet then zips off and on SO EASILY. It is seriously so quick and convenient. Changing sheets now takes less than a minute, rather than many minutes. The struggle of trying to get the fitted sheet around the mattress is a thing of the past! Read HERE for more on how it works. I promise you this is revolutionary and great for teaching kids how to help out! Saylor loved being able to change her own sheet and zipper it all the way around.

I got THIS 2 piece starter pack, with THIS extra zip on sheet which is SO SOFT! Saylor loves the minky feel and keeps talking about how soft it is. I’m so excited to use these sheets on our crib when the baby comes…you can shop all the crib ones HERE.

 

I also wanted to mention how important it is to use sheets properly, so our littles can be safe. You can read more on that HERE, but please don’t take our little loves safety lightly, and always read the directions and warnings on any products we use for them!

We love our QuickZip sheets and hope you guys try them, too! Let me know if you have any questions and be sure to enter my giveaway on IG!

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!

Toddler Meal Ideas with Amara

I know I have touched on this before, but I *try* to be semi healthy and instill good habits in Saylor. I’ll be the first to admit that I love sweets and don’t ever deprive myself, but I always do eat a good amount of fruits and veggies and be sure to drink plenty of water.

When I discovered Amara, I was immediately interested. Especially since I’m having another baby, I’m starting to think about baby food (what?) and things like that. Amara focuses on healthy food, and not much else. They don’t add anything you can’t pronounce, and it comes in a convenient packet. They also have discovered a new way to offer baby food…freeze dried! Super cool. It locks in nutrients that can otherwise get lost.

There are a lot of different things you can do with their food other than making it into baby food. You can add them to smoothies, applesauce, and even make pancakes…which is what I did tonight! Saylor loved helping me and loved the end result. Here is the recipe for Green Pancakes.

 

  

Saylor wasn’t quite sure at first, but after the first bite she was sold. Be sure to check out all of Amara’s baby food options HERE and follow them on Instagram HERE.

The Perfect Gifts for Your Littles

Hi! If you are like me, and still looking for gifts…look no further! I have rounded up a few of my FAVE things for littles. We’re talking 2 and under.

img_2933         img_2934

My first favorite things to gift are books. Who doesn’t love books?! Saylor has shown interest in them since she was tiny, and I love that. What is even better than books, is a book subscription! What I love about Bookroo is that your subscription is based on age. You pick 0-2 and 2-6. Pictured here is the 0-2 option, and they are board books which is great! You get 3 books each time for 0-2, and 2 books for 2-6. Use code ROBYMEAC for a surprise at checkout!

Next are swaddles from Embe.Company. These muslin swaddles are so, so soft and the perfect size! They come in cute patterns, I personally love this vines one! These aren’t just for babies, they can be used for toddlers as they grow!

img_2924         img_2925

Last, but not least, are Freshly Picked Moccs! These will always be on my list. They were the first pair of shoes that Saylor wore, and at 3 years old, she still wears them! (not the same pair of course, haha). They come in the best colors and patterns, and actually stay on your babies feet! Total must have, and a great gift.

What are your go to gifts? I hope you check out the 3 of my faves above! Happy shopping!

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.

img_2872 img_2883  img_2878

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.

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.

Bath Time Faves!

Today I am going to talk about my favorite bath products and company for Saylor (even for myself!). I am sure you have all heard of Tubby Todd by now, but let me tell you my experience with them and why I will never use anything else for my kids!

I discovered Tubby Todd on Instagram, and finally bought her bath set at the Mom Made Market in San Diego (side note, if you’ve never been to that, you must go). The Bath Set includes bath wash, lotion, and bubble bath. The first thing I noticed was the SMELL. Everything smells divine! Not too strong or overpowering, but the perfect amount. If you have ever been on Soarin’ Over California at California Adventures, the bubble bath smells like the orange groves! Or if you have ever driven through the orange groves in Redlands when they are blooming,  you know exactly what I am talking about! The lotion and bath wash are lavender scented, which of course everyone loves. It is also calming, which is pretty much a necessity when you have a crazy toddler! Now this bath wash lathers better than anything else I have ever tried, and I really appreciate that. A lot goes a long ways with these products! Another plus is that everything is all natural, and super good for sensitive skin and skin prone to eczema.

Let’s talk about the Dream Cream now. I bought this specifically for my dry hands. I have naturally dry skin, and in the winter, it gets even worse. And imagine moving to Utah. Not good! I have also used this on Say’s cheeks when they get wind chapped and dry. This cream is thick and silky, and not sticky at all! I keep one in my purse and one at home at all times. This has a totally different scent, a slight hint of mint, which is perfect.

image

Now if you didn’t know, Tubby Todd is a small shop owned by a young MOM. One of us! If you have followed her on Instagram (@tubbytodd), you know how passionate she is about her company. She saw a need in the bath time market, and filled it! I know that for me personally, I would so much rather support a hard working mama, than a big box store, or someone who doesn’t really care. Now if you haven’t tried it…I suggest that you go now! If you sign up for her newsletter, you can receive 10% off your first order. Happy bathing!
