Not only do I have baby fever, but I have baby boy fever. It seems like everyone I know had a bouncing baby boy last year, so maybe my turn is next 😉
In preparation for the son I may or may not have, I’ve been obsessed with collecting ideas for his nursery! Here are a few of my favorite trends that are happening in boy nurseries right now. My absolute favorite is the metal/wood wall … how cool is that?!
Kelly Rowland and her baby boy Titan are just too cute for words!
Kels and her six-month-old son kiss, cuddle and coo in Dreft’s new “Amazinghood” campaign. The laundry detergent has teamed up with the R&B beauty to document the unforgettable moments she shares with her little “Superman” on Dreft’s social media channels. Fans can view their “Journey of Amazinghood” videos on Dreft’s Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube pages throughout 2015.
Recently, I’ve been on a mission to revamp my look. I ordered new shoes, jeans, tops, dresses and more, but realized that my accessories stash was running low. Little miss #CharlieB has taken over my jewelry box, but if I being honest, most of the stuff in there was super dated anyways.
Thank God for The Pink Studs. My friend told me about this super cute online jewelry boutique and since then I’ve been obsessed. Their trinkets, baubles and jewels are perfect for a chic like me. A bit edgy, girly, classic and unique all rolled into one.
Just take a look at a few of their items below and head over to their site www.ThePinkStuds.com, you won’t be disappointed!
By now, you probably know how obsessed I am with Club MomMe and their Family Fest! Last Fall was my first one and it was a BLAST. Now, the Spring Family Fest is this Sunday and I’m giving away a free pair of tickets so that YOU can experience all the fun, too!
1. You must be following Stilettos & Sippy Cups and Club MomMe on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter (see links below).
I’ve seen these little no-bake energy bites on Pinterest for quite some time, but last night (at midnight!) I finally decided to make them. It took virtually no time at all, PLUS they’re super yummy and healthy. Win-Win-Win!
NO BAKE ENERGY BITES
PREP: 10 MINS TOTAL: 10 MINS
1 cup (dry) oatmeal (I used old-fashioned Quaker oats)
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup ground flax seed
1/2 cup chocolate chips (minis may be better)
1/3 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of cinnamon
Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed. Cover and let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour.
Once chilled, roll into balls of whatever size you would like. (Mine were about 1″ in diameter.) Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.
Makes about 20-25 balls.
Recipe spotted @ Gimme Some Oven (although I tweaked it a bit..took out the coconut and added a pinch of cinnamon.)
I’ve tried my fair share of car seats … FOUR to be exact (and #CharlieB isn’t even two yet!). But now, I look no further. The Britax Advocate ClickTight car seat is all I ever needed!
I could give you all the safety features and the extensive list of impressive data, but Britax has already done all of that for you (just click HERE). What I will do is give you my list of pros and cons for the car seat that has been accurately dubbed the “#GameChanger”.
-It literally took me less than a minute to install it. ME! Our last car seats all had to be installed by my husband.
-It’s super plush and therefore comfy for my tall toddler.
-It’s a convertible seat that goes from newborn to toddler seamlessly.
-There are seven recline positions. SEVEN! Plus easy to read indicator on the side makes knowing which position to put your child in fool-proof.
-More than anything, the enhanced safety features give me peace of mind like no other.
-I wish it had a cup holder.
Yep, that’s my only con. And I just found out you can order one as an attachment on the Britax website for about 15 bucks.
As a product tester it’s really important for me to be able to stand behind my words and trust the items I endorse. Without a doubt, I will be recommending the Britax ClickTight car seat to every SASY mom I know!
