PUJ APPROVED

I’m excited to be a guest curator over on Puj this week! Puj is an awesome brand and resource for new parents.  Their goal is to make your life easier by simplifying parenthood through the products they create.  They also started a new section called “puj approved” in which experienced mommas share some of their favorite baby products available in the market today.  I rounded up a handful of my favorite baby items, some based on style and others on functionality…or both!

You can shop my Puj Approved collection here.

You also have a chance to win a “mystery item” (one of the items pictured above!) by simply pinning the product you think it might be from puj.com

Have you heard of the brand new App Reissued!?  It’s a curated social marketplace app to buy and sell vintage, one-of-a-kind, handmade and hard to find items.  If you are anything like me, you love vintage, but find it hard to find the time to actually get out and vintage shop on a regular basis.  This app makes it easy with it’s curated group of sellers.  You can find items ranging from clothing to furniture to home goods.  And not only do they offer vintage goods, they also specialize in handmade.  Which is something I have always been passionate about.

I hand selected some of my favorite finds from some of my favorite sellers within the app.  To shop these pieces (and MUCH more) simply download the app from the iTunes App store HERE.  Just search the sellers names listed above to find these specific items and more!  Happy shopping.

Just a few of my favorite summer essentials.  We are currently on a ‘staycation’ at a beach house for a few nights and are soaking up every minute of it.  Summer vibes on my mind:

IT’S A BOY

You may have already heard through instagram, but Sam and I are thrilled to announce we are having a baby boy! We couldn’t be more excited!  It’s taken a little while for it to fully sink in…..I mean, I’ve been in girl mode for almost 3 years now! And while I obviously knew a boy was a possibility, I was more shocked than I thought I’d be when I saw….”it”….on the screen!  We’ve had a boy name picked out for a while now, so I love that I can already call him by his name…Cru Larson.  Middle name is still TBD.  I’ve been doing a little a lot of online hunting to familiarize myself with the boy side of things.  I’ve come to realize it’s definitely more of a challenge, and comes a lot less naturally to me.  I’m sure I’ll find my way soon enough! Until then, suggestions are welcome!

I’m 20 weeks now and his kicks keep getting stronger.  They started out as little flutters, but have grown so strong to where I can see him moving from the outside.  It’s my favorite part of pregnancy, and I can’t say there is much I love about being pregnant other than feeling him move and knowing what I will be gaining at the end of this journey.  Some women feel great and love the process, but I am not one of those women.  I meticulously count down the days until the finale.  This second pregnancy has been better in some ways, and harder in others.  The nausea is less frequent and less intense (with Rylee I had to stay on medication my entire pregnancy to curb the sickness that never went away).  But my body is more tired and achy, and most of the time, I just feel like an 80% version of myself.  BUT, I’m half way there.  And the thought of snuggling with him and kissing his cheeks make every discomfort worth it.  Still, Sept. 12th can’t come soon enough.

When I started this blog, I remember mostly posting about inspiration and all the wonderful things I found on the internet.  Over the last year, I noticed I’ve lost that a little bit.  I love discovering unique and beautiful product online, so I thought I’d start fresh with my collection column and bring you all of my current favorite finds….be it a ‘mini’ collection like this one, items for your home, or your own wardrobe.  I’ve never been good at sticking to regular columns here, so we will see how this goes.  But it’s true, it’s one of my absolute favorite posts to create, and it brings me back to this humble blogs beginnings.

And congrats to Hannah, you are the winner of the ShoeMint giveaway!  Email me with your info!
