Outdoor Picnic with TeepeeTot + Coupon Code

Tee pee Tot Picnic with Coral and Cloud and Fancy Frogz

When I browse online for decorative inspiration, I notice I am attracted to a common theme within children’s spaces. In this space there is usually an area of shelter or personal space that the child can call their own. Unfortunately, these spaces are often not practical or affordable to do in my own home. When I came across TeepeeTot I knew that Jiao’s creations would be a perfect fit for any area in our home and something my children would enjoy. Continue reading

We Love Handmade! Small Business Photoshoot Collaboration

I feel like I start every blog post with I am so excited, but honestly… I am so excited to share these with you. I have been working with some pretty awesome ladies/mommas recently for the opportunity to share some of their amazing products with you. I got to get together with my sister, plan a little picnic photoshoot with our kids and then photograph the results.

We set up the Teepee Tot tee pee for the first time and introduced them to some new hand crocheted teddies, by Softly Made, and it was so great to see them interact. Sophie has always been a wild one, exploring, yelling and flailing where Milo is a little more reserved, cautious yet curious. Their personalities seemed to evident within the photographs to me. They are also wearing some favourite clothing articles from Modern Moses Clothing and Little & Lively.

Shop Feature: MimiTENS

It’s that time of year again where the baggy sweaters, thick socks and warm mittens make their appearances.  Getting myself dressed is enjoyable as I love bundling up in layers.  Getting my kids geared up and ready to go is much harder.  Over the past month I have been testing out and dressing my daughter up in mimiTENS mittens and it has made the job so much more enjoyable.  mimiTENS are handmade with nylon, thinsulate and bamboo/organic cotton to keep your child’s hands ‘oh so cozy’.  I have discovered that my mimiTENS mittens stay on my daughter’s hands way better than any other mittens that she owns.   She doesn’t make a fuss when they are on either! Win Win!
