Halloween is a little over a month away. I don’t know about your house but it’s a conversation that is brought up often. Of course each time they change their minds of what they want to be, but we are all excited.
While on Pinterest today I found Laurie’s Tutu Boutique and I fell in love with the adorable scarecrow costumepictured above. Laurie’s etsy shop has some other really adorable costumes that could be perfect for your little one. Like this little butterfly…
And this costume would be a winner in my house, Rapunzel. It is one of our favorite movies these days and we’ve watched it several times. What a beautiful costume!
Be sure to head over to Laurie’s Etsy shop to see more amazing costume’s and tutu’s for this coming Halloween.
Back to school time is here and it’s time to think about your little ones lunch box. At least in my house we are thinking about getting new lunch boxes (and backpacks) for the upcoming school year. My girls are entering into preschool (so scary…they are getting too big too quickly). Last year’s lunch box was great but a little small for two little girls with a growing appetite. I recently came across PlanetBox, a very cool lunch box for both kids and adults that was designed by two parents. PlanetBox, is an eco-friendly lunchbox made out of high quality food-grade stainless steel and saves parents out there from buying sandwich bags and other lunch packing containers.
PlanetBox was designed to help parents pack healthy, well-balanced lunches their kids will love. Part Japanese Bento box, part TV dinner tray, PlanetBox’s individual compartments ensure that foods do not “touch each other.” The sandwich compartment guarantees no more squished sandwiches. There’s plenty of room for fruit and veggies, and even a small spot for a little tasty treat. The right-sized compartments guide parents on how to pack a variety of foods, and get the portions right. At the end of the day, the whole thing can go in the dishwasher for easy cleaning.
PlanetBox’s kid-friendly design features one easy to use latch that little fingers can open and close on their own. Food arrives at school neatly displayed in one super stylish looking tray. And here’s the coolest part–kids get to personalize their own kits with ultra-hip “rocket”, “under the sea”, or “retro kitty” themed magnet designs (11 styles to choose from). What better way for kids to express their personality!
Definitely not your old-fashioned metal lunch box, PlanetBox is truly lunch transportation for the green generation. I can’t wait to receive ours!
I recently spotted this adorable idea over on a wonderful blog called eighteen25, a Good Deed Card! What a fabulous idea! Reminds me when I was in high school and had my smoothie card. Every time I went I made sure to get it punched so I could get that free smoothie. Amazing how a little card and a simple punch made you so happy. The ladies at eighteen25 put this same idea into a card for your little ones. Every good deed, you get a punch or a stamp. Once you get to 13, you get a treat….whatever that may be between you and your little one. A trip to the movies, a new toy, miniture golf, etc. All I have to say is genius! Thanks ladies! Nothing like a little bribery.
And to make it better the ladies have a free download so you can use these cards right away with your kids. To get your cards, download cards here.
I came across the most adorable baby announcements ever! Have you heard of Hello Lucky!!?? They are a specialty letterpress printer and design studio and have been creating wedding invitations, greeting cards and personalized stationery since 2003. The founders are sisters and best friends Eunice and Sabrina Moyle. They co-founded Hello Lucky in 2003 with a vintage Vandercook press in Eunice’s garage.
They have several beautiful things but I absolutely adore the birth anouncements. The Dino Birth Announcements (pictured above)are too cute!
But this sweet elephant announcement is also on my list of favorites.
And I love the little lion announcement!
What’s your favorite? You have to go and see all of the Baby Announcement’s on Hello Lucky!
