This book was recommended to me by someone on Facebook (thank you!) and it was just what I needed in preparation for baby #2’s arrival. I took a day to clear out the freezer and prep some of these make ahead meals and they have been delicious. I love that all of her recipes are free of dairy, grains and gluten and made with whole, natural foods. Highly recommend. Click here to check it out.
I love these! They are great addition to sprinkle on top of smoothie bowls or oatmeal. They’re gluten-free, kosher, vegan, non-gmo and raw. Cocao is also a great source of magnesium, other minerals (notably iron) and antioxidants. They’re indulgent and healthy at the same time.
I did some work with MOPS International this year and as a thank you they sent me this adorable necklace from The Giving Keys. I LOVE what they’re about. The concept? Pay it forward. They engrave words on old keys and you keep the key as long as the message resonates and rings true for you. When you no longer need it you pass it on to someone who does. I’ve sent a few to friends in the past and love having another that I can pass on at the appropriate time. You can read more here.
I first discovered the Solly Baby Wrap through Natalie Borton so when they offered to send me one to try out I was quick to accept. I had a Moby Wrap with my first daughter but rarely used it because the fabric was so thick and difficult to deal with. The Solly Baby Wrap is much thinner and much easier to use. I have been LOVING it! I also love supporting moms who start their own businesses and chase their dreams. Click here to check them out.
I’ll be doing a full review of this next week but can I just say I’m in love? As silly as it sounds this bento-style lunchbox has made me enjoy prepping food for Miss B and she is eating more as a result. Win, win, win. Click here to check them out and stay tune for more details along with some toddler lunch ideas next week.
Have you discovered any new product that you’ve been loving lately? If so, I’d love to hear about them!
