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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
