Lacey Lane: Australian Heritage

i am reporting from lithuania of all places this week. my day job brings me to all corners! speaking of far flung places i am crushing on the aussie brand lacey lane's girlie looks this season. they just launched their summer collection (hello southern hemisphere!) but i love that these pieces are versatile enough to be styled for any season. these little frocks have a feminine vintage feel without being fussy. adela is modeling the ella dress in my favorite color of the season: emerald!

Good Brushing with Dr. Brown's

i am in europe this weekend for a business trip (day job) but i had to share this adorable toothbrush for babies and toddler from dr. brown's. it is the perfect size and grip for little adela. the best part is dr. brown's makes natural toothpaste in a real actual flavor: pear and apple. yum!

The Honor Society

parenting is hard. you have to teach your children everything from using the toilet to reading to being a kind person. not to mention trying to keep your own adult life together!

Drying off with Caro Kids

pajamas, bed linens, and towels. are all things i go a little crazy over. i think this obsession has spilled over to my kids since they get equally excited about cozy towels. there is nothing like a big fluffy towel wrapped around you after a bath. amirite?!

caro home has recently added a children's line. the caro kids collection of bath towels include character hoodies, sophisticated yet playful dot and heart designs and coordinating wash mitts, all in ultra plush and absorbent cotton that will have even the most sensitive tushies happy.

is it me? or do digital thermometers simply not work. i have a forehead, ear, and armpit type... and all of them are unreliable!

so when i heard about the feverfrida from the trusted markers of the nosefrida--arguably the most useful baby shower gift i ever received--i had to try it out.

what is it?

well, it's a small flat pod with a sensor on it. grab your phone download the ithermometer app, turn on bluetooth and you're ready! stick the feverfrida on the child's armpit with handy stickers that come off without an "ouch". tap your phone and you can monitor your baby's temp all night long.

for those extra concerned parents (yes, i am one of them!) you can set custom alerts, track medicines and chart temps over time. put one on your wishlist this cold and flu season!

Adorn: Niroma Studio

wall weavings used to bring to mind my neighbor's den circa 1978 with sunshine yellow yarn. and wooden beads. weavings are making a come back in a big way and these are a whole new animal.

my dear friend and former contributor to this blog, cindy, jumped ship to start niroma studio that creates hand-loomed wall hangs for the home. the studio offers amazing custom pieces as well as a collection of made-to-order cloud series (pictured) hangings. the little clouds are the perfect addition to a nursery or playroom by adding a burst of color and texture to the wall.

i hung henry and adela's next to the their beds and call them dream catchers. the kids love to talk about how the bad dreams get stuck in the cloud and then come out the bottom as a good one. it also helps to keep their fingers off the weaving, since if they touch it the bad dream might fall out!
