UV Skinz – Save a Baby’s Skin Campaign {Giveaway}


Here in upstate New York, we're finally enjoying warm temps and bright sunshine! My girls love to be outside in the summer so keeping their skin safe from the sun is a top priority.

Clara has been wearing UV Skinz swimwear for the past few years and we're always happy with the great quality and fun designs. This year she received the adorable Short Sleeve Sunny Swim Shirt and matching Sunny Swim ... ...continue reading

FabKids Tribal Jumper & Gold Gladiator Sandals


As you've probably read by now, we love the adorable styles and amazing quality of FabKids clothing-- we look forward to the new outfit each month and have yet to be disappointed. Our newest item, the black and white Tribal Jumper has been another huge hit with Clara. Personally, I'm a sucker for black and white so this outfit is one of my current favorites in C's closet. I love the tribal print and the bright pop of pink on the neckline, zipper and drawstring. Clara's crazy about the amazingly soft and stretchy material-- each time she's worn it, she's asked if she can wear it to bed ... ...continue reading

They are so vibrant and colorful, and really capture the girls attention as we read. With a focus on God's love, faithfulness, protection and other positive themes to help ... ...continue reading
