Online Sale: Amazon Mom Appreciation Event Going On Through Sep 14th

I am an Prime Member and can’t tell you how much money I’ve saved because of being a member.   The free 2-day shipping alone is amazing as I am often a last-minute gift shopper.  For example, my son’s birthday is tomorrow and I ordered his gifts from yesterday!  Because I am an Amazon Prime member though, his gifts will arrive by the time he gets home from school on his birthday.  Best of all.. I didn’t have to leave the house to buy one gift for him this year!

Super Adorable Hair Clips and Accessories for your Little Girl from Lil’ Sugarplum + a Coupon Code!

Lil' Sugarplum baby hair clips

Five years ago my daughter didn’t have much hair.  She was a baby with strawberry blonde ‘fuzz’ on her head and a huge smile.  Those two things didn’t show that she was a girl however.  When we would take Madelyn out to the store and if she wasn’t in pink or purple clothes, she would be mistaken for a boy.



hair clip organizerNow, my daughter’s hair is long and not so strawberry blonde anymore and she wears hair clips because she loves them not because she has to to look like a girl.  She has a lot of hair clips from Lil’ Sugarplum and she stores them neatly on her Lil’ Sugarplum hair clip holder.

She chooses her hair clip carefully every morning before school.


Here are a few of her favorites.  She doesn’t wear the gingerbread man to school yet but she’s practically counting down the days.

Pippa with Lucky Duck & Friends is an artist who specializes in one of a kind baby and toddler clothing that is unique because all of the designs on her baby clothes are taken from Pippa’s unique acrylic animal paintings and then digitally printed on the clothing.  Unique right?  Other prints include an elephant, penguin, duck, and lion cub.  Pippa’s designs capture the carefree and loving nature of kids.  Her designs remind me how innocent little baby’s are.

Tea Collection Review and $150 Giveaway – There’s Fun in Every Playful Piece!

Tea Collection Bali Spring CollectionWe love Tea Collection.  My daughter has several pieces from Tea Collection that she has been wearing for about a year and two things that I as a mom appreciate about Tea Collection clothing is how well the pieces hold up and they are machine washable. My daughter loves the “colorfulness” (that’s her word not mine) and she chooses her Tea Collection dresses over many because they are very soft and comfortable.

She recently received a few pieces from Tea Collection’s Bali collection.

Bali is Tea Collection’s inspiration this Spring season due to its rich immersion in the arts.  From small mountain villages to surf worthy coasts, inspiration abounds in Bali.   Surrounded by natural beauty, vibrant people, and intoxicating music, the family became engrossed in Bali’s rich culture and history resulting in their beautiful Bali collection.

Tea Collection - Bali Collection
#1 Artisan Lotus Dress, #2 Jaya Peak Playdress, #3 Flutter Fun Romper, #4 Moon Orchid Trapeze Dress
Tea Collection brought all the creativity that they had amassed and poured it into their new, vibrant collection of children’s clothing, the Bali Collection.
Starting with the Moon Orchid Trapeze Dress (#4 in photo above). Its watercolor design of one of Bali’s most beautiful flowers stands out against its crisp backdrop. Made of 100% cotton, this dress playfully swings and twirls which makes my daughter very happy.  This is a great stand-alone piece, but it also looks adorable with a pair of leggings like Tea Collection’s peacock pedal pushers.

Tea Collection - Moon Orchid Trapeze Dress
We love the vibrant colors and dual print design of the Artisan Lotus Dress (#1 in photo above).  Covered in Bali’s ikat print with a band of lotus blossoms around the waist, this modern twist on a traditional print is sure to be a crowd pleaser. If your daughter is like my five year old, this fun dress will be one your little darling cannot wait to wear.
A dress from another collection holding true to the Bali theme is the Jaya Peak Playdress (#2 in photo above).  Mountain peaks and butterflies border this whimsical dress, named after the tallest mountain in Indonesia.
PAZITOS FLOWER BUNCH SANDALSDoes your daughter need shoes to complete all the charming looks in this collection? Check out Tea Collection’s adorable Pazitos Flower Bunch Sandals in Kiwi for an extra pop of color. These comfy leather sandals are perfect whether your little one is going dressy or casual.  As you can see in the photographs above, my daughter wears these with everything!
Tea Collection, has a distinctive outlook on fashion. By using destinations as inspiration, Tea Collection brings playfulness to their children’s clothes. They have styles and designs to fit the personality of little girls and little boys everywhere.
From Japan and Korea to West Africa and Norway, Catalonia, Mexico, Hungary, and Brazil Tea Collection has traveled the globe to share and create. Their brightly colored clothes are machine washable making them as easy to care for as they are to wear.

For your Princess – Chelsea Baby Headband and Snap-On Bouquet

Chelsea Baby Bouquet Headband

My daughter loves to play dress up.  She changes into ‘fancy clothes’ soon after she gets home from school almost every day.  She’s not lazy about changing into her fancy clothes either!  Fancy shoes, leggings or tights, a sweater, sometimes a tutu, a bit of blush, and always some sort of hair accessory.  Today she was so excited when she saw what she received from, a beautiful headband and snap-on bouquet.  She tried the headband with her hair up first then decided it would look prettier with her hair down.  Such a tough decision, right?

For that little girl who likes to do exactly that “Dress up” this darling lavender, tulle and pink, green, & purple striped grosgrain ribbon completes the look!

Chelsea Baby offers the headband in lavender, hot pink, light pink, and lime green and there are currently 10 bouquet options.  The bouquet you see in the photo above is called “Dress Up”.  Fitting name, isn’t it?  I love the idea of a snap-on bouquet.

Chelsea Baby’s headbands and bouquets are whimsical, fun, and fancy. Perfect for your little princess!
