She {hearts} Matilda Jane Clothing

collage1

A mother of two boys and a successful decorative artist, Denise DeMarchis, brought her unique, soulful approach to creativity and relationships to her venture—an “unpredictable clothing company” which began in 2005 called Matilda Jane Clothing! After early success at art fairs around the Midwest, Matilda Jane Clothing moved the business toward a Trunk Keeper model—a direct selling approach that keeps the spirit of art fairs alive while building personal relationships across the country.

Matilda Jane Clothing’s designs are youthful. Playful. And expressive. Their whimsical approach to texture, pattern and color results in designs that capture the spirit and imagination of childhood. Lucky for us, gals of all ages and sizes can join the fun! Matilda Jane Clothing is available in girls, tweens and adults. Flavors for all!

She {hearts} Kidsme

 photo kidsme_zps2c247902.jpg
 photo IMG_0521_zps44194d3f.jpgKidsme feeder is an award winning baby feeder. The design is sleek- the silicone sac looks almost like a pacifier, with handles allowing baby a comfortable hold, and a lid that serves as a nice “practice cup.”

Honestly I’m not sure how the silicone sac would hold up to teeth, which my other three all had by the time they began solids, but my guess would be not well long term (replacement sacs are available) /*update* company noted they have not had issues with teeth affecting sac/. However with Bo, who is still toothless at nearly 7 months, I’ve found the Kidsme Feeder to be a great transition from exclusively nursing to eating solids- particularly since I don’t bother with baby food and just feed my babies off my plate. The feeder encouraged him to learn to chew without the danger of choking which especially gives my husband piece of mind. After using the feeder for a few weeks he now has been gumming bites like a pro by himself, though we still use it occasionally so he can easily self feed!

The feeder is dishwasher safe, and doubles as a teether- just pop in some ice or frozen food. Another thing I love is that the sac sizes are interchangeable, which means you can purchase one feeder in small or large and additional replacement sacs in the other size separately.

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 was recently introduced to a fabulous new company called Funky Giraffe.  They make the most adorable bandana style baby bibs and my girls were super excited to try their new bibs!

Things I love about Funky Giraffe bibs:

  • they are crazy soft (the front is a cotton knit and the back is a polyester fleece) and comfy to wear
  • they come in a huge variety of patterns and colors
  • they have adjustable snaps so they fit perfectly and make it very difficult for a baby/toddler to rip off :)
  • they look so super cute!

She {hearts} Happy Wrap

Happy Wrap Logo

Happy Wrap stock photoBaby wearing is a topic near and dear to my heart.  I still remember being pregnant with my second child, and wondering how I would ever keep up with a busy 2 year old and a newborn baby.  At that time, a friend of mine was visiting from another Province.  She told me about the wrap that she had and showed me how to use it.  I knew I had found my solution!

That was 6 years and a few babies ago.  Just a month ago I gave birth to our fourth child.  Life with four kids is fast paced and full of action!  Once again, I am in love with baby wearing, and in particular, the Happy Wrap.  It allows me to have my hands free while I tend to my older children.  Babies love to be near to mama, and this way no one has to miss out on my attention.

The Happy Wrap is made from organic bamboo fabric.  It is incredibly soft and has the perfect amount of stretch.  The beauty of this type of carrier is that it is a one size fits all, so you don’t need to have a different carrier for Mom & Dad.

I think what impressed me the most is their clear instructions and commitment to safety.  The website is full of great information for those who are new to baby wearing and this particular type of carrier.

The Happy Wrap is available in 5 fantastic colours and costs $48.

she {hearts} cupcake wishes & birthday dreams pompom garland

I have seen pom pom garlands all over the blogosphere, and I have been in love with them.  They add so much spunk and texture to a room- a pop of color here… a dash of flavor there.  When I started decorating my youngest’s nursery, I knew I wanted to drape a pom pom garland over the curtain rod.  I felt like it would be a nice and airy way to add some color to her room.  Cupcake Wishes & Birthday Dreams sells the most amazing pom pom garlands.  The pom poms are super dense and the perfect size.
