We got back from a family vacation to Newport Beach yesterday evening, and there is a true MOUNTAIN of clothes on my bed just waiting to be sorted and put away. Holidays are the best, but unpacking is the worst, especially with little kids stuff too.
We're easing back into our regular routine today, and I wanted to throw up this Friday Favourites post because it's been a minute, and I have a list of things that I love/have found really helpful lately. I hope you find them helpful too! HAPPY FRIDAY!!!
I bought this Loopy Case back in February, so I'm not sure why I'm only sharing it now, but it's amazing! I used to drop my phone at least 10x a day (triple that if we're counting how many times Piper dropped it a day). I think I've only dropped it like...maybe once since getting this case. It has a loop at the back for you to hold onto it, and it makes it so nice when I have my hands full with Jack, bags, keys, toys, etc. because I just loop a finger through and I'm good to go. It's honestly been a game changer since having kids, and I'll never go back to a regular case.
I don't have a discount code with them, but I follow someone who does! Hers is "SWENSON10" and gets you 10% off if you're interested! I have the White Marble Original.
My sisters all use Native shoes for their kids, and I finally got some on Amazon a couple of weeks ago for Piper. THEY ARE THE BEST FOR TODDLERS! They are waterproof, easy for them to put on by themselves, lightweight, and they don't rub. Piper's been wearing them non-stop since I got them. They have a 4.5 out of 5 star rating on Amazon, with over 2,300 reviews...so you know they're leeeegit!
Someone on Instagram posted about this app, so I downloaded it and LOVE it! They post a different learning activity to do with your child each day (you can add multiple kids and each has a different activity based on their age). I love doing this kind of stuff with my kids, but I run out of ideas, so this is really helpful, and you can set a reminder too!
I took the kids to Ikea a couple of weeks ago, and saw this smock in the kids section. Piper is probably THE messiest toddler in the planet. She is a true savage when it comes to eating, colouring, and painting. Need I remind anyone of her painting a few weeks ago (see picture below). I never want to limit her creativity, but also...can you not, Piper. It was only $4.99 at Ikea (I don't know why it's more expensive on Amazon), but either way, it's been perfect to let her create, but also limit the clean up. She calls it her "painting dress", and it goes all the way down to her toes!
Piper has the best curly hair, but it always has to be tied or clipped back otherwise she can't see a thing haha. I LOVE these headbands from Why Knot Bows because they are soooo cute, and also do an awesome job at keeping her hair back. They come in the best colours too! I love all the neutral and fall colours.
