nui water.

If you’re like me you’ll drink diet coke in front of your kids but forbid them from ever having a sip because of the aspartame/ caffeine/ carbonation. I’m not a big fan of a lot of juice boxes marketed to kids either because the #1 ingredient is almost always sugar, {and heaven knows P gets more than enough of that at school}. What’s the solution for kids who are thirsty for something other than plain old H2O, especially as the…

organized home.

One of the things I love so much about Spring is a fresh start of cleaning and organizing, {well not so much the cleaning part, but definitely the organizing}. I love purging all the odds and ends acquired over the Fall & Winter and getting ready for Summertime garage sales. I’ve been cleaning out the house one closet and room at a time, squirreling all the superfluous goods found into a small corner of the garage. And when the time…

handmade craft aprons for kids.

These ultra cute aprons have been a lifesaver for me & at only $12 it’s worth snatching up a few {these are GREAT gifts for showers, birthdays, and Christmas}. I’ve used mine for mealtime, playtime, and messy craft projects. Each apron is custom made, so you can choose from a selection of absolutely darling fabrics for your child. They’re 100% cotton so you can throw the aprons in the wash as often as you need to. Think of all the…

I’ve been lurking around this blog for a while now. I actually get some really good ideas about current fashion trends from watching celebrities {of course I always tone it down about ten notches, price & bling wise both}. Frugal-Fashionista features regular updates of inexpensive alternatives to celebrity couture. It’s a fun bookmark; lust away. {Images via Frugal-Fashionista}.

cute tween clothing for your daughter.

As a mother of an official “tween” I find it very hard to find clothing for my 8-year-old P. I feel like my options are either Gymboree {which I love, but has officially been declared too “babyish”} or clothing along the lines of Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen. I’m not too thrilled with dressing P like a miniature teenager and have been desperately trying to find a happy medium. You’d think with all the “tweens” running around there would be…
