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.

Splendies underwear does run small. So if you are in between sizes at all they recommend you going up a size. They also have a plus version called, Volupties for sizes 1X-3X. I think it is so awesome that they have options for everyone.

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.

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.

Wooden Sunglasses

Tell me you don’t love the idea of pairing fashion with the use of sustainable materials!  Proof sells one-of-a-kind eyewear made from wood.  I fell in love with all the shapes, colors, and sizes that Proof has to offer.  The lightweight feel of the wood is unlike any pair of shades I own.  They also offer optical eyewear for those who need it!

She {hearts} SwimZip

Sun protection is super important to me, especially when it comes to my kids. My kids have acquired my exceptional paleness (you’re welcome, my dears) so it’s always a long, dramatic process to get them sunscreened up in the summertime. Sunburns and the potential long-term effects of too much sun exposure are painful, scary, and issues that should not be taken lightly.

SwimZip is a line of fashionable kids swimwear whose shirts zip up the front, making UV protection a “zip!” Their adorable SPF 50+ line keeps kids skin sun-safe and reduces the need for lots of chemical-laden sunscreen on their delicate, often sensitive skin. And, as every parent knows, it’s usually not a fun time having to wrangle a wriggling two year old and lather them up every few hours while they are having fun in the sun. Each SwimZip piece is made of quality stretch lycra/nylon, which blocks 99% of UVA and UVB rays and is chlorine resistant. This tagless line’s key feature is the full length front zipper, which makes for easy on, easy off (especially when wet!).

Betsy, the founder of SwimZip, was diagnosed with skin cancer at just 26 years old. She wanted to take her scary and traumatic experience and bring something good of it, and she saw it as a “chance to help others avoid my fate – and maybe even save lives.” Betsy says, “With the conviction that comes from knowing without a doubt that you are doing something right, I dove headfirst into the world of UPF sun protective clothing … and thus was born SwimZip.”

Betsy graciously sent me the Caribbean Dolphin front zip rash guard shirt for my oldest daughter to try out when we went on our beach vacation this past week. I love how the shirt opens and zips up the front of the body, eliminating the hassle of trying to fit a big-kid head through the usually small head hole of normal rash guard shirts. The material is light and comfortable, and kept my daughter cool yet protected those delicate shoulders with an SPF of 50+. Plus, how bright and fun is the design? And the hot pink definitely pleased my girly-girl.

The SwimZip sets are ADORABLE and so unique. My favorites are Grey Grey Go Away! and Ruffle Me Pretty.

{heart} It

SwimZip SPF 50+ kids swimwear is perfect for summertime swimming and outside play at the beach, at the pool, or in the backyard. These pieces give kids ultra sun protection while adding so much style with their unique designs and front zipper feature. SwimZip was born of a passion to protect kids from the harmful effects of too much sun exposure without using harsh chemicals and with ease and style in mind. You can also find SwimZip on Facebook and Twitter.

Betsy would like to give away one SwimZip front zip rash guard in either Caribbean Dolphin or South Seas Turtle to one lucky She {hearts} It reader!
