She {hearts} Knocked Up Nails

knocked up nails logo

Many nail polishes contain tons of icky ingredients, so I’m always glad when I find a company that is free of those ingredients!

Knocked Up Nails offers 5-free maternity safe nail polish that you can feel good about using, pregnant or not!  Read more about the ingredients that they use and don’t use here.  Knocked Up Nails has a wide variety of polish colors that range from classic to trendy, all with fun names!

I enjoyed trying Mom’s Night Out on my fingers and 18K Gold Crown(ing) on my toes!  Mom’s Night Out is bright red but with a slight shimmer/sparkle that is quite lovely.  18K Gold Crown(ing) is a metallic gold that reflects light and has a nice, cool undertone.  I applied two coats of each color and they held up well!  The photos show my nails after 2 days of regular wear (hands in water, etc.).  I was happy with the coverage and the great colors!

Gorgeous stationery has always made my heart go “pitter-patter,” so when I stumbled across May Designs I knew I had to have one of their custom books!  I had so much fun designing my own cover (complete with my monogram!) and picking out the inside pages.

She {hearts} Chewbeads

As those of you who are moms know, babies LOVE to play with whatever jewelry you happen to be wearing!  I started looking for a great teething necklace since my 18-month-old is in the throws of teething and I have a new baby on the way.

Chewbeads is a great company that makes teething jewelry that you actually will want to wear!  The fun jewelry line is made out of 100% silicone, which is totally safe for babies to chew on (read about the safety features here)!  I received a Jane necklace in chartreuse to review.  I can’t stop wearing it!  My daughter has already gotten quite attached to this necklace and loves to chew on it at any opportunity.  This statement necklace is SO cute and I get compliments when I wear it!

Chewbeads has a great variety of styles and colors to choose from, including bracelets as well as necklaces.  You’ll have a hard time picking out your favorite design!

I love finding unique kids’ clothing companies, and my girls love getting pretty new clothes!  KicKee Pants is very loved here at She {hearts} It, and I was excited to try out a few of their summer pieces!  KicKee Pants clothing is beautifully designed, well-made, and crazy soft!  The bamboo blend of fabric is so soft against your little one’s skin.  I love the playful, yet feminine styles for little girls!

She {hearts} Amoralia

We all know how hard it can be to find lovely, comfortable nightwear!  It’s especially challenging when pregnant or nursing, so I knew I needed to get a set of pj’s from Amoralia when I discovered their company!

I selected the “Honey” Cami and Pajama Pant Set in Aqua.  I have never slept in such comfortable pajamas!  The fabric is so soft and breathable, yet stretchy too.

I love the color and style of this set, and the lace detailing is flirty while not revealing too much.  The cami fits over my 7.5 month pregnant belly, but it will also be great to wear postpartum while I’m nursing!  The nursing openings are discreet but accessible.  I’m really looking forward to wearing this while snuggling my new baby boy this fall!

Amoralia offers other lovely items as well, such as camis, nursing tops, bras, panties, and swim suits.  Everything they sell is beautifully made, with feminine touches and high-quality fabrics.

She {hearts} Zipzicles

zipziclesLogoDSC_0147copyAs a kid, I remember enjoying icy freeze pops all summer long to beat the heat!  I know they are mostly high fructose corn syrup and artificial dyes, so I haven’t given any to my girls.  I was sad about them missing out on this childhood tradition until I found Zipzicles!

Zipzicles are clear skinny bags with zip tops that allow you to make and freeze your own popsicle freeze pops!  I can make all kinds of fun flavors for my girls and customize them based on their taste preferences and allergies.  You can simply wash and reuse the bags again when you’re finished!

There are tons of great recipes on the Zipzicles website, and I can’t wait to try a bunch of them!  For my first batch, I made what I called “Pineapple Orange Dreamzicles.”  (Recipe below.)

Pineapple Orange Dreamzicles
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 can of frozen pineapple orange juice concentrate (7 ounces)
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  1. In a blender, dump in water, juice concentrate, yogurt, and vanilla.
  2. Blend until smooth.
  3. Pour into Zipzicle bags (fill just to fill line) and zip shut.
  4. Place in a mug and freeze until solid (about 6 hours).
  5. Enjoy!

Our family loved the Pineapple Orange Dreamzicles!  The girls thought the concept was so cool (eating a popsicle from a bag!), and they loved getting to experience this classic summer treat.  My husband and I enjoyed them too!

The Zipzicle bags washed up perfectly and now they’re already for my next batch!

I can’t wait to try more popsicle recipes (or even just frozen juice) this summer.
