  MARNI STRIPE DRESS

Sonnet James is a company that specializes in making dresses for the everyday mom. They are comfortable, stylish, and impeccably made- right here in the US!  You can dress them up for a church morning, or put on some tennis-shoes and go for a walk with the family.

Sonnet James was created by a momma with all those things in mind- style, comfort, and workmanship.

These dresses are designed to be rolled around in with your kids, worn while jumping on the trampoline, or for going to the park and flying a kite!  Live life… with your family… in the perfect Sonnet James dress!

Sonnet James was birthed by a mom of two boys, so you know these pieces were made to be worn, enjoyed, and to last!

I received the Stella dress to review.  I have already worn it several times- once to church, once to a meeting, and another time to a conference.  I love that it is a non-maternity dress that can be worn during pregnancy!  I feel so comfortable wearing it right now with my expanding baby bump, and I can’t wait to wear it without my baby bump!  The fabric hangs so nicely and the care of the garment is super simple- wash and let air dry.

She {hearts} Sage & Harper

Sage & Harper

I have been searching high and low for a handbag that fits my personality and my needs.  I have so many “wants” when it comes to the perfect handbag, that it is difficult to find one to fit the bill.  When I spotted a Sage & Harper handbag, I knew I was done looking for the perfect handbag.  Sage & Harper handbags are the perfect size, the perfect “cross-body” length, and have style for days.

Each bag is carefully crafted, right down to the pockets, stitching, and sweet details.  One of my favorite features is the size.  It is big enough for me to carry all my necessities for the kids, yet isn’t so big that I feel like a bag-lady.  The interior has 5 pockets- one which fits my cell phone like a glove- and three exterior pockets.  They help to keep my purse organized and everything in its right place.

I can’t say enough about the beautiful details in each bag.  The fabric, the craftsmanship, the appliques on the flaps- perfection!  Finally, a bag that meshes beauty and style with function!

She {hearts} JANE

One thing I think most of us moms enjoy doing, is shopping online. At least I do. While I am the type to go out and thrift for almost everything I buy… there are times I do like to purchase things new… and enjoy finding fun places to shop without having to leave the house. After all, as a mom of 4, my “free time” to shop as I please is far and few these days.

I was introduced to Jane.com way before Christmas! They were sweet to gift me with a few tops and have been so patient in waiting for my review on their company. Which honestly may have worked out in their favor… because as each month passed since I was first introduced to them, the more I grow to like their website.

It is filled with such awesome deals and fun products. With such variety. You can log on and find outfits for you but also for your children. You can find great decor items or gift items for friends and family. Practical pieces as well, such as USB readers, cell phone cases and recipe cards.

Check out this cute top they had listed this week.

As well as this adorable chevron diaper bag for under $15.00. I thought this bag would make a great nursery bag for a baby girl or boy! Looks really easy to monogram too, for an even more personal touch.

I love the yellow top they sent me. Light weight and great for summer or team with a skinny jean and layers in the fall.

She {hearts} Shop Miss A

missa

I tend to be a youtube stalker on occasion… watching fun tutorial’s online and following a select few off and on. One day I logged in and saw a video up by one of the bargain fashion guru’s, who was showcasing a company called Miss A. It immediately got my attention because she started her video by saying everything on their shop cost a $1.

ED9A6137So! I of course logged onto the Miss A website and began browsing.

I spent way to much time :) – they sucked me in and I got to clicking through their entire site and thought their selection was great and had to showcase them.

I got to try out 30 of their items and it sure was fun. A box full of goodies just for me :) and possibly 1 or 2 for my boys. (yes they have some kid stuff too).

Some of my favorite item’s that I tried were their lip balms, both very simple and so me. Another favorite was their nail polish remove pads! They worked better than any other nail polish remove I have ever used. What was nice about them as well is that they didn’t involve a big bottle of liquid or cotton balls. Everything came in a nice compact little container. I highly recommend those. Also their owl jewelry, as well as their numerous number of small zip tote bags. Their hair clips are fantastic too! I stocked up on bobby pins like crazy.

You could easily stock up on just the variety of bags they had for fun Christmas gifts to give out at a school function for your daughter.

Miss A not only carriers great deals on ELF make up brushes and other cosmetics, they also carry a wide variety of jewelry, sun glasses, hair accessories and many more misc. items. Perfect place to shop, avoid crowds this Christmas and stock up on great smaller items and stocking stuffers!

Oh and did I mention shipping is only $3.95! No matter how big your order.

She {hearts} Splendies

logoOne thing that I normally spend money on is high quality underwear. You wear them all day long so you want to be comfortable. I was sent three pairs of organic undies to try out. They were all silky smooth and really adorable! I was surprised the shipping was so quick. I was excited to open up the package and see which ones I received. All three pairs did fit me. My favorites were both of the polka dots ones. Very cute.

She {hearts} HayBugDesigns Camera Bags

haybug
ED9A8113You all know I love a good hand bag. You know even more so that I love a good camera bag. Cause well, ya know, photographers got to have accessories too, besides their rad cams.

HayBugDesigns about a month ago, maybe longer? shipped me one of their adorably trendy hand made camera bags. I was super pumped to get an email from them, one because I love camera bags but also because I’m a huge supporter of smaller shops on Etsy. They take pride in their products and this camera bag shows it.

I have a few camera bags, most of them are leather type materials. So it is nice to mix it up and tote a light weight and softer cotton bag.

These bags do come with thick padding to protect your gear. Although if I’m super honest I will say, it isn’t as padded as some of my camera bags, but it is plenty padded for every day use. I am a bit rough on my gear, so sometimes I feel more comfortable with my thicker bag. For those who want a great every day camera bag for park trips with the kids, zoo trips, vacation, a social event, etc..etc… this is a great choice.

I have dragged this bag with me to paid gigs where I am carrying gear for hours, it fits my shoulder well and rids perfectly on me. I love that is doesnt stick out and is a slim design, not bulky.

Typically I carry my 5D Mark III with a 50mm lens on it, an 85mm, 28mm and some spare cards/battery. It all fits, as well as my keys and cell phone.

This bag is totally washable too, so if you use it as a diaper bag/camera bag, the ability to wash it is an extra perk.

HayBugDesigns offers a variety of great camera bags and even diaper bags. Not only do they have bags but they also have matching camera straps, clutches and more.

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.
