Ju-Ju-Be Black & Bloom with Sakura Swirl

Ju-Ju-Be Sakura Swirl

Ju-Ju-Be Diaper bags are a must-have for every Mom or Dad! They have a collection of bags and accessories in a variety of styles and prints. I recently purchased a Black and Bloom BRB and Sakura Swirl Be Light and they are both absolutely gorgeous!

Everyone went crazy last year for the Ju-Ju-Be release of Rosy Posy  and it sold out in minutes. Everyone has been begging for more florals ever since. Ju-Ju-Be listened and gave us more floral and now rose gold hardware! After Rosy Posy, I knew I had to get my hands on these brand-new prints.

Black & Bloom Be Right Back

The Ju-Ju-Be Black and Bloom print launched 3-6-18 which just happens to be my birthday month. So as a birthday present, my husband got me the Black & Bloom Be Right Back.

The Be Right Back is one of my favorite bags from Ju-Ju-Be. It holds a ton and is perfect for packing for more than one kid. I have a 1-year-old and a 7-year-old, so I usually pack extra clothes, tons of snacks, diapers, wipes, crayons, toys, coloring books etc. What I pack depends on the outing but those are usually the basics. I love to use it at the zoo and at theme parks so I can pack everything I need and be hands-free to deal with the kids.

Features include:

  • Padded back panel with breathable mesh
  • Ergonomically curved and padded shoulder straps
  • Quick grab handle
  • Cell phone pocket
  • Mommy pocket
  • Exterior bottle pockets

The BRB is convenient and comfortable. I am loving it in Black and Bloom.

Black and Bloom is from the Onyx Collection so it includes Black hardware. I have noticed a difference in the zippers. They definitely seem to open and close a lot smoother than bags from the other Ju-Ju-Be collections.

The bright watercolored flowers of black and bloom go so well with so many prints. It’s also the perfect print for Spring!

As you can tell I have a thing for florals. I have two daughters so I am all for the super girly prints. Rosy Posy, Sakura Swirl, and Black & Bloom were all super limited prints from Ju-Ju-Be. I am so glad I was able to get what I could while it was around.

IMG_4523_edited

Sakura Swirl launched 4-3-18 and was very hard to get. The only way I managed to get one is that I went to a local trunk show and was lucky enough to grab the one and only be light available. Retailers only got a handful of the Rose Gold collection.

Sakura Swirl, Whimsical Watercolors, and Rose Colored Glass are all part of the newest Rose Gold collection from Ju-Ju-Be. They all came with beautiful rose-gold colored hardware.

IMG_4512_edited

I can’t wait to use my new Sakura Swirl Be Light! The light pops of color against the white make it simple yet elegant. Another bag perfect for Spring! It is gorgeous!

IMG_4519_edited

The Be Light is another favorite of mine. For either quick trips with the kids or just to use on my own as a mom bag. This bag is the lightest yet holds a ton! It’s easy to carry and you can attach D-rings to it to attach messenger straps.

Other features include:

  • Two insulated pockets
  • Inside zipper pocket
  • Main zipper closure
  • Light colored linings

You can pack it with set pieces like I do or use an insert for the inside.

IMG_4517_edited

So what makes these bags different than all the others? One main feature is the Teflon fabric protector that helps repel stains. I don’t baby my bags so this is essential. Another is the Antimicrobial linings that kill germs, mold, mildew, fungus, bacteria etc. And lastly, all the bags are machine washable. As a mom, all of these features make a huge difference. Collecting the prints is fun and the quality will last years. As gorgeous as these new prints are, they were super limited and are mostly sold out by now. There are still some bigger bags available at the links below.

The Luck of the Irish

pexels-photo-132420

St. Patrick’s Day is a big deal in our family. We have Irish on both sides of our family so we go all out in celebrating. In the morning, I usually make little messes around the house and put green food coloring in the toilet so the kids think a leprechaun came by. My older daughter makes a little trap with money inside in hopes of catching one. The girls get so excited when they wake up and think a leprechaun stopped by. Find more creative ideas here.

I also make some delicious St. Patrick’s Day pancakes for the kids. They are easy to make and taste good too. Find the recipe here.

After breakfast, we get everyone ready and dressed up in green! We then go to a family-friendly St. Patrick’s Day event. The kids love watching the live bagpipers and Irish dancers. There is usually kid games, crafts and of course tons of food.

After our family outing, we come home and watch one of our favorite movies, Darby O’Gill, and the Little People.  The kids love the music and the leprechauns. After the movie is over, the kids start getting restless waiting for dinner to finish cooking. I try to find some fun crafts they can do to keep them busy and entertained, find some ideas here.

#Followyourart with Gymboree

 I was compensated for this post.

Winter is ending and sunny skies are ahead! Spring is just around the corner and I couldn’t be happier.  I think spring is one of my favorite times of the year. The warmer weather and clear skies make for so many fun outdoor activities. One of our favorite things to do is pack a lunch and head to the park. The kids enjoy the playground, then we like to walk the trails, and do some exploring.

girls-children-tulips-netherlands

Springtime also inspires lots of arts and crafts at home with my kids. My older daughter is full of creativity and loves making pictures and projects. Even my toddler loves to color and paint as well. We love to find fun projects we can all do together using paint, stickers, glitter, markers, and more! The kids absolutely love it and make a huge mess of course, but they are having fun and that is all that matters. It keeps them happy and quiet for hours, and the memories will last a lifetime.

back-to-school-1576791_1920

Another thing I enjoy about Spring is all the bright new styles at Gymboree! There is so much new to see at Gymboree with their #Followyourart campaign and their new spring collection.

The new #Followyourart campaign is inspired by all the ways kids get creative! With bright new styles and fresh new ideas, Gymboree has the spring styles you are looking for.

At Gymboree, you will find quality clothing that will last for years that are both comfortable and stylish. They have so many sales that make their already affordable clothing a better deal. Plus, they have a Rewards program and the opportunity to earn Gymbucks. I know for me I am always looking for good deals on quality clothes for my kids. So hurry and head to Gymboree to get your kids Spring ready with style!

Valentine’s Day – Celebrating a Day of Love.

The links in this post contain affiliate links and I will receive a small commission if you make a purchase after clicking on my link.

February is here and tomorrow is Valentine’s Day! There are a lot of different ideas about Valentine’s Day and why it exists. A lot of people think that it is just a commercialized holiday for the card/candy companies to make money, but there is a lot of history behind it. The holiday is actually named after Saint Valentine.  A lot of the traditions that go along with Valentine’s Day are based on Saint Valentine and has been celebrated for centuries.

The holiday may be intended for couples, but really you can use this day to celebrate anyone meaningful in your life. Whether it’s your best friend, your kids, your parents it really doesn’t matter. Valentines Day is a day of love for anyone in your life that is special to you.

pexels-photo-208160

I do enjoy celebrating Valentine’s Day with my husband because having a forever Valentine is something to celebrate. I also enjoy celebrating this day of love with my mom and my kids. We all exchange cards and candy just to show we care.

 Fannie May Valentine’s Assorted Chocolate Heart – 5oz

Papyrus A Hundred Hearts Valentine’s Day Greeting Card, Multi-Colored

My older daughter usually has a party at school, so I buy her Valentine’s Day cards for her classmates and goodies for her to pass out and share. I also get the teacher a cute gift as well.

Valentine’s Day Create Your Own Be Mine Mailbox Kit – Spritz, Pink

Reese’s Valentine’s Exchange Peanut Butter Hearts – 25ct/15oz

Merci Valentines Day Teacher Gift – 7oz

I dress up my girls in pink and red so they are ready to party in style.

Girls’ Valentine’s Day Hearts Nightgown – Cat & Jack Pink 

Girls’ Hello Kitty Heart Graphic Short Sleeve T-Shirt – Light Pink

Toddler Girls’ Minnie Mouse Ruffle Dress – Oatmeal Heather

I love pink and hearts so decorating for Valentines Day is my favorite part. I get as many decorations as I can to make my home look festive and pretty.

Tassel Garland Light Pink/Dark Pink/Gold 60 – Threshold

Heart Shapes Garland Gold/Pink/Purple 60 – Threshold

Every year I try to bake some homemade goodies for my husband and kids. I decorate the kitchen with Valentine’s Day decor and put out cupcakes, cookies, and candy.  I buy the kids some pizza and we watch a family friendly movie before they go to bed. Once the kids are in bed, my husband and I are able to relax and spend some time together.

My husband and I don’t even attempt to go out on Valentine’s Day anymore. It’s just not worth the stress of waiting two hours to be seated. We usually go out the weekend before or after Valentine’s Day, which we have found to be a lot easier.

We let the kids have their fun with snacks, treats, pizza and a movie then get them to bed. We then enjoy a quiet dinner by candlelight with some romantic music. After dinner, we usually watch a movie and enjoy some dessert. It’s nothing extravagant but we try to just enjoy the day and keep it simple.

pexels-photo-302515

Most of the decor, gifts, and candy I buy are from Target. They have so many cute things available. I usually shop online and choose the pick up in store option. This saves me time and money. I save 5% every time I shop by checking out with my  Target REDcard.  There’s also this fun new thing called Gift Now that makes shopping even easier and saves you another 5%. If you’re looking for last minute items Target is the place to go.

I hope all of you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day! Spend it with those you care about and share the love!

Itzy Ritzy Reusable Snack Bags

Received free to review from Itzy Ritzy, but all opinions are my own.

I am so excited to share with you a collaboration with one of my favorite companies, Itzy Ritzy! They have given me the opportunity to review their fabulous “Snack Happens Reusable Snack and Everything Bags.” I received the XOXO and Donut Shop Snack & Everything Bags along with the Donut Shop Snack Happens Minis.

IMG_3777_edited yes!

First off I have to say my order came in the most gorgeous packaging. The tissue paper, message cards, and the pom-poms were such a nice surprise.

Itzy Ritzy Packaging

I absolutely love that these bags come in such cute prints! The Reusable Snack and Everything Bags in XOXO and Donut Shop are just a few of the prints available. You can find more snack bags in a variety of prints at Itzy Ritzy.

Good2

The Large Snack and Everything Bags are 7-inches by 7-inches. The 2-pack of mini snack bags are 7 inches by 3.5 inches. They are made with a 100% cotton fabric exterior with a food safe, FDA approved, BPA-free lining. The Snack Happens bags are also lead-free, phthalate free, PVC free and CPSIA certified. That way you can use them worry-free. They are also made with a thick water-resistant lining and a zipper top closure to keep everything inside without any mess.

Good3_edited

I was so happy to find that these fun bags would be easy to clean. Shake out any crumbs, then hand wash or machine wash cold as needed then air dry. How easy is that?

Good

Not only are the Itzy Ritzy Reusable Snack Bags super cute in all their fun prints, but they are also eco-friendly! They are made of high quality and durable materials that will last. A much greener alternative to the many plastic bags being thrown away on a daily basis.

With three kids, having a diaper bag full of snacks is a necessity. All of my kids are hungry all of the time. So I pack up all of my snack bags with as much food as possible. Makes a day of running errands with the kids much more bearable. I love that everything I pack stays fresh and is so easy for my kids to access. The zippers are smooth and quiet so my kids can snack quietly without all the rustling of plastic and wrappers.  Whether it’s the diaper bag, a packed lunch, or mom’s purse there are so many ways to use them. As great as these bags are for snacks, they can be used to hold so much more!

So how many ways can you use these cute, fun, and practical snack bags?

  • Snacks, fresh fruit, vegetables, lunch bags, school lunches, field trips.
  • Travel, plane trips, road trips, toiletries, medicine.
  • iPods, earbuds, cell phones, cameras.
  • Make-up, jewelry, purse organizer, gift bags.
  • Hiking, camping & beach gear, mini first aid kits, EpiPen, pet supplies, keys, gym cards.
  • Crayons, art supplies, small toys, birthday party or play date favors, back-to-school.

Ju-Ju-Be for Christmas

The light’s have been taken down and the tree has been put away. The holidays are officially over! It’s bittersweet, I will miss the glow of the Christmas lights and driving around showing my kids all the beautiful decorations. The whole season is full of joy and excitement. We enjoyed so many festivities with the kids. We traveled all over town to bring them to all the Christmas events. There were also many quiet nights at home, watching our favorite Christmas movies while sipping hot cocoa. The other part of me is ready to get back to life and is counting down the days until my older two go back to school. Either way, we had a wonderful Christmas and was so grateful to be able to spend it together as a family.

pexels-photo-712320

Watching the excitement in my children’s eyes on Christmas morning is probably the best part of being a mom. Their list was short and simple. My daughter said just being with her family is the only gift she really needed. How sweet is that?

One thing she has been wanting for a while was a Ju-Ju-Be Itty Bitty Be and one of the new OOAKPL Silver Keychains. So when Ju-Ju-Be had a huge sale Black Friday weekend, I made sure I got my girls (and me) lots of goodies.

IMG_3609_edited

My older daughter was SO EXCITED to find her very own Itty Bitty Be in Super Toki under the tree. It’s a tiny Be Classy that includes a mini changing pad and a messenger strap to wear cross body. She loves that I also included her very own OOAKPL Silver Star Keychain! I told her it made her an official pink lady and that made her day. Her reaction was priceless!

IMG_3627_edited

The Super Toki Itty Bitty Be is a vibrant print with Tokidoki superheroes. The inside has the Sweet Victory print with a bright red, blue and yellow. This print is perfect for my daughter.

She loves wearing it crossbody and takes it everywhere we go. She either carries her wallet with spending money or fills it with shopkins, hatchimals, or other little tiny toys. It’s just the right size for my little pink lady in training.

IMG_3621_edited

The Itty Bitty Be is really just the cutest thing ever. It is perfect for all the little pink ladies out there. It comes in so many different prints too. My daughter was thrilled to own her very own Ju-Ju-Be bag, just like Mommy.

classy1

Mommy got her first Be Classy from Santa in the Dandy Lines print! Up until now I have only used quicks, lights, and set pieces. This is my first structured bag and what a game changer! I love how it can be used as a purse and a diaper bag.

A more in-depth look at the Be Classy is coming to my blog soon!

 

IMG_3651_edited

Left – Tokidoki Tokipops Paci Pod, Right – Tokidoki Unikiki 2.0 Paci Pod

 

Both of my girls love to use the Ju-Ju-Be Paci Pods. My older daughter clips hers on her bags to store her little toys. She was given the Tokidoki – Tokipops Paci Pod and was so happy! My younger daughter occasionally uses a pacifier, so I will actually be using her Unikki 2.0 Paci Pod for her pacifier. She likes to carry it around like a wristlet or I use it clipped on my bags. I scored both of these Paci Pods for a really great deal as well during Black Friday weekend. The retailer I ordered from also threw in a Tokidoki x Bebe Au Lait tote as a GWP, which I was so excited about!

The Ju-Ju-Be Paci Pods have two elastic bands inside that can hold a variety of items but are primarily used for holding two pacifiers one on each side. They have Teflon fabric protection to help repel stains and Agion treatment to protect the liner from bacteria.

Not only are Paci Pods a cute way to accessorize your bags, but there are so many uses for them besides holding pacifiers.

  • Cough Drops
  • Phone Charger
  • Earphones
  • iPod Shuffle
  • Chapstick
  • Toys
  • Car Keys
  • Eos Lotion
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Jewelry

These are just some uses for the Ju-Ju-Be Paci Pods. They come in a variety of prints, making it fun to collect and to dress up your bags.

 

IMG_3645_edited

Left – Be Tagged in Rad Hearts, Right – Lanyard in Happy Hearts.

 

All of these fun Ju-Ju-Be accessories made for great stocking stuffers. The Ju-Ju-Be Be Tagged is a great bag tag that perfectly fits a business card or a cute picture.

Other uses include:

  • Work Badge
  • Library Cards
  • Theme Park Passes
  • Luggage Tag
  • Pool Cards
  • Debit & Reward Cards
  • Gym Pass
  • ID Cards
  • Emergency Info
  • Labeling your child’s Backpack or Lunch Bag

You can also remove the fabric cord and attach a metal chain or key link. You could then attach it to a necklace or a keyring.

The Ju-Ju-Be Happy Hearts Lanyard is the cutest lanyard in my favorite print! Rad Hearts and Happy Hearts was an exclusive pink lady collaboration with Rad & Happy. It was a very limited print but the lanyards are still available online at Ju-Ju-Be. Lanyards can be used for work badges, Id’s, and passes. I attach mine to my keys so I can easily find them.

So overall my family and I had a wonderful Christmas. Not only was it was filled with my favorite Ju-Ju-Be, the best part of it all was sharing the holiday with my family. We are so grateful that we could be together for the holidays. My husband goes on call once a month and sometimes it falls on a holiday which is a major bummer. He works so hard for his family so I can stay home with our three kids. Every moment I can spend with my husband and kids is a true blessing.

I hope everyone had a great holiday and enjoys 2018!

Holiday Traditions with Gymboree

  I was compensated for this post.

theme-christmas-77078

The Holiday season is officially here! It’s such a magical time of year, especially as a kid! I remember growing up, Christmas was the one time of year I looked forward to. My sister’s and I would enjoy making our Christmas list for Santa. As the days got closer to Christmas Day, we would be so excited we couldn’t sleep. We would wake up bright and early on Christmas morning, ready to see if we got what we hoped for. Of course, there were more moments that made Christmas so special. We would buy hot cocoa, play Christmas music and drive around town looking at Christmas lights. We would also spend time baking cookies, watching movies, and spending time around the campfire. The holiday events, visiting Santa, the Christmas parades, and of course the Christmas tree! That was one of my favorite parts of Christmas as a kid, decorating the Christmas tree. I feel like a kid myself around the holidays and there is nothing better than sharing these moments with my own children.

Christmas theme cookies

Rainbow Mama Bear & OOAKPL

Thanksgiving has come and gone, and so has a ton of sales! I had to stop looking as I just couldn’t justify any more online shopping. Either way, I did manage to score some major deals! One recent sale was from the stylish brand of Loved by Hannah and Eli! It’s a small business run by Sarah Duncan who makes all of the adorable “Mama Bear” apparel we know and love. I scored a Rainbow Mama Bear  – Vneck from her recent sale and I am loving the rainbow lettering!

It’s part of her Rainbow Mama Bear collection, which pays tribute to those who have suffered a miscarriage or infant loss. Proceeds from this collection are donated to charity’s that offer grief counseling and other services for these suffering Moms. I myself have never gone through an infant loss or miscarriage, but a close friend of mine has. It was a heartbreaking experience to watch her go through. So when I saw this beautiful rainbow tee, I automatically thought of her and had to get it!

There are so many cute collections available at Loved by Hannah and Eli. She is very active on social media and is constantly running fun giveaways, especially in her VIP group on Facebook. Such a fun community I am so excited to be a part of! I will also say that the customer service I received was beyond belief! She went above and beyond for me and I couldn’t be happier.

hannah and eli 1

Along with my new “Mama Bear” t-shirt, I also scored some fun goodies from my favorite  Ju-Ju-Be! Not only do they carry diaper bags and accessories, but they also carry keychains and lanyards. As soon as I saw these I had to have them.

jjbstarslanyard1

There are many different print lanyards to choose from available online at the Ju-Ju-Be Pink Lady Shop. The OOAKPL – Premium Silver Keychains are still available for purchase as well, but the OOAKPL Rose Gold Keychains are not currently in stock.

The Ju-Ju-Be OOAKPL Keychains stand for – One of A Kind Pink Lady. A Pink Lady is basically a hard-core Ju-Ju-Be Fan. There is a very large community of women (and some men!) who all share a strong love and passion for everything Ju-Ju-Be. There used to be a Ju-Ju-Be forum of fans called The Pink Room, but it has now become a chat group on Facebook. We all share our new bag prints and styles, ask questions, and have a first look at the new releases, special sales, etc. It is really quite amazing and it’s a group I am proud to be a part of. I have always been kind of obsessed with purses and bags, so it’s not surprising I would fall down the rabbit hole known as Ju-Ju-Be! There can never be enough and you will always feel the need to #buyallthebags. If this sounds like you, make sure you find us at The Pink Lady Chat – PLC on Facebook.
