Where has the time gone... Spring is Here! For most it seemed like the Winter here in New England lasted forever. For me. It. Flew. By. How do we have a 5 MONTH OLD!!!! We are embracing the spring and have been busy cleansing the house...old clothes, organizing the basement and overall spring cleaning. But mostly enjoying our precious baby girl... The one who we live and breath for, gosh how we love our So!!

Here's what the Peeps at Woolzies had to say "Woolzies are pure handmade New Zealand wool dryer balls that soften your laundry naturally without any of the chemicals of conventional fabric softeners. Unlike the plastic dryer balls, they are PVC free and won’t fall apart or melt on you. Woolzies save time and energy by cutting down on drying time by an average of 25% per load."
They also help reduce static and wrinkles. Making them perfect for my dress shirts and pants!!
"Use Woolzies to snuggle up with naturally downy soft laundry that’s completely free of harmful chemicals.
Woolzies are also hypo-allergenic and totally safe for people with wool sensitivities as they will not shed onto your laundry. Unlike even natural dryer sheets and liquid fabric softeners, Woolzies last for 1,000 loads and are therefore extremely eco friendly. So why risk your health and waste your money with regular fabric softeners when you can save time, energy and money with all natural pure Woolzies!" (Woolzie)

Sophia and I were offered the opportunity to do a review for Thirty-One. I have heard of people having these “Thirty-One” parties but never knew what all the hype was about. Thirty-One sent over a Zip-Top Organizing Utility Tote in Navy Wave with turquoise personalization, a thermal tote in Navy Wave/Paradise Pop and a Key Fob in Paradise Pop. And can I just say I LOVE THIRTY-ONE! Everything is so adorable and functional! Functional being the key word here. I HAVE to be organized, especially when it comes to a mom on the go. I adore the key fob, because you all know how I ALWAYS lose my keys! The thermal tote is perfect for my lunch and Sophia’s bottles and the Utility bag, literally does it all! It makes everything organized and assessable. Not to mention the fabulous prints, They are BEAUTIFUL!! All in all the Thirty-One items are to Die For! A little background on the Company…
The Thirty-One Story
“Just over 10 years ago, Thirty-One was formed with a simple goal of helping women by giving them an opportunity to own their own business. Through God's strength, we've built a family of individuals who feel women deserve to treat themselves and those around them to something special. That mission is at the center of everything we do as a company.
We are always looking to welcome new women into our family, and we’re proud to support them along every step of their Thirty-One journey.” (Thirty-One Founder)

So I have become quite the collector if you will with Diaper Bags. In general I seem to “collect” a lot of bags through my journeys. Typically if I see a bag on sale or just at a good price I feel the need to purchase it! I have to admit that price directly reflects quality! I received the Ju-Ju-Be BFF bag for review and they sell for $165, quite the investment, for me this would be two or three bags. Oh how wrong am I, I talked to tons of Moms who are on baby number 2-3 who have the BFF bag from Ju-Ju-Be!! This bag is made to withstand the “abuse” of use! It is so functional and sturdy!! There are zipper pockets on the outside for easy access to driver’s license & money without fumbling around. Along with a key fob…Oh how I love key fobs (did I mention up until I had Sophia I never knew what a Key “Fob” was!) When your car is keyless, it’s important to know that you always have your key in a spot that you can remember. I have on several occasions shut my car off and locked the doors only to realize that I shopped for three hours with my key in the car not in my bag! Definitley worth the price, and the luxury of not having to replace diaper bag after diaper bag! I just adore my new Diaper Bag....
The BFF is a convertible backpack, and amazing at that. What the peeps at Ju-Ju-Be had to say “Are you a hands free girl? If so, then you need one of the cutest backpack diaper bags around. We've got great straps, padding for the back, and a variety of great features that will keep you focused on holding your baby, not holding your bag.”
The description says it all: From Ju-Ju-Be
This bag will be your BFF. It will also make you new BFFs because all the other ladies will want to be your friend. It might make your current BFF a little jealous, but that’s OK because she wasn’t all that good of a friend anyway. Just a few questions: Did she ever offer to carry all of your stuff in an ultra organized way? The BFF will. It has tons of pockets and organization...so much you won’t know what to do with it all. Is she flexible? The BFF comes with detachable shoulder straps and messenger straps. Use it any way you want! Does she have spice and flair and elegance and style? If she does, then you better dump her right away, she might make you look bad! Just kinda sorta kidding mostly...but seriously, if she does, then you need a BFF just to keep up. Smooches, pinkie swears, and forever friends. XOXO

Ok I know I go overboard when it comes to Sophia’s wardrobe, but I can’t help it! I LOVE little girl fashion. When I came across Taylor’s Penny I went NUTS!! This company does custom Converse Kicks for girls, boys and woman. We received the Custom Converse Pink Crib Shoe Leopard Designed with Swarovski crystals…and I can’t lie, I’m Obsessed!! You know they are the shizzz when men stop and ask you about your baby’s kicks! I really don’t think I can put her in a “normal” pair of shoes after stepping foot in these custom shoes.
The shoes range from $60-110 and worth every “Taylor” Penny (pun intended) Your custom kicks also come with the original laces so if you want to tone down your Sneakers you have that option, they also come with a bag of replacement crystals (yes this company has thought of it all!!) but when I tell you those crystals are on there they are REALLY on there, so chances are the crystals will go unused.
I love the fact that you can purchase these to spice up your little ones wardrobe or surprise someone at a baby shower with a pair of these….I seriously couldn’t think of a better gift!!!
There are so many different designs in the Taylor Penny Etsy shop and they are made to order!
Here’s what the peeps at Taylor’s Penny had to say, “Over two years ago I became a mother to the most beautiful little twin girls I have ever laid eyes on. I named them Penelope and Taylor. Being a mother was the best thing that ever happen to me and I am so blessed to have them. Tay and Pen give my life a reason for existence, motivation and patience. I like to dress them up as if they were my dolls LOL... They bring out my hidden creative side, I dare to be different, and I will make sure they are the same!” Thus the Creation of the absolutely stunning shop!! These elaborate designed converse shoes are the perfect accessory. Especially when babies can’t walk and the bottom of their shoes are all studded out, brilliant!!
Stop by Taylor’s Penny and check them out HERE
