Okay, so at the time of this writing it's still a little over two months away. But Halloween will be here before we know it, and for a few weeks leading up to it, the season will be in full swing. It's always a really fun time of year for kids. Even before dressing up and trick-or-treating, there's the costume shopping, pumpkin picking (and carving), and perhaps a few more treats than usual. Throw in the fact that, at least in much of the United States, the weather becomes ideal for playing outside, diving in and out of piles of leaves, etc., and it's just about the perfect season for kids.
Let's face it, the day after a holiday weekend is BRUTAL! Beat those back-to-reality blues by entering to win $100 in shop credit from us! Entering is easy--and YOU get to choose how you enter. There are 8 ways to enter--the more entries you complete the higher your chances to win. Contest ends on Friday. May the odds be ever in your favor!
Summer, summer, summertime. Time to sit back and unwind. If you weren't singing that as you were reading then something is wrong with you. The sun has FINALLY decided to show its beautiful face here in the Northeast after weeks of rain and cold. How about we celebrate the lift of my seasonal depression with a little small shop and blog roundup? Woot! Grab a summer shandy, sit out on the deck, and check out a few of our faves.
As you all know, I usually reach out to you to choose the organizations we support each month. I love giving to the charities that you are passionate about. However, every now and then, I hear about an organization that speaks to my heart and I am compelled to share it with you because I am so excited about it. This month's charity, TinySuperheroes, is one such organization!
As a boy mom, I often find myself drooling over all the ultra feminine options out there and dreaming of dressing my own little lady. Then, my husband tells me that having a second child for the sole purpose of dressing her is not an option. Kill joy. So, I will continue lusting outfits that will never make their way into our home and will instead share them with you. I apologize to your wallet ahead of time because I guarantee that you are going to want allllll the things.
It's been a long time since I've created a blog post so I think it's about time that I get back into the saddle. What better way to jump back into things then with a roundup of some of our favorite spring products?! If you are like me, you love the change of seasons because it gives you an excuse to go shopping. Check out this list of some of my must haves for this spring season!
I'm kind of pumped to talk about Loud Waterfall Photography, this week's Small Business Spotlight. This may not be the first time you've come across this shop. Maybe you didn't even realize that you've seen them before. If you, like millions of others, watched NBC's parenthood then you have seen this shop in action! They were featured TWICE in the show including the series finale. How awesome is that?!
Where are my mommas to beautiful biracial babies (you like that alliteration?!)? You are going to LOVE today's Small Business Spotlight, Little Renegades. Other mamas, don't fret, you are going to love this post, too. Little Renegades' mantra is to abandon society's view on how kids should dress. You know what, I think that is pretty bad ass.
There is one thing that I love more than showcasing small businesses (and thus, encouraging people to shop small) and that is showcasing small businesses that give back. If you are reading this, you know how important it is to us to give back to our community and causes that are near and dear to our heart. It appears that this week's Small Business Spotlight, The Bugaroo Brand, is our kindred spirit in that sense.
Easter is right around the corner and what is more fun than having awesome holiday tees for your tiny humans to rock and show their holiday spirit? People love a good holiday tee and I am no exception. In fact, we don't even celebrate Easter and I had to scoop up an amazing Easter tee from one of our favorite shops, and this week's Small Business Spotlight, Cutie Patudies.
