main squeeze

When you are little, life is all about your buddies.

Who is there for you when you have a bad dream? Who is there for you when you just need a hug? Who is there for you when you are sick? Who is there when you have something cool to share? A stuffy buddy, that’s who. Your main squeeze.

Meet Hazel Village. A wonderfully thought-up stuffed animal village with a lot of personality! How stylish they are to carry along – to dinner, to church, to the grocery store with mama or even to bed! There is a whole lot of make-believe happening with these little creatures. A fabulous accessory for any outfit. Take a look at their little community (and, no, you can’t move in)…

And just in case you are as jealous of these stuffy’s outfits as we are, check out Hazel Village’s simple little clothing line for children…

sealed with a kiss…and a bow, of course

Let’s be honest – accessories say it all. They seal the deal. They make things official.

Bitsy is crazy for bows – and do we have the bows for you! These bows will have you rocking around your Christmas tree…

and a hug around the neck

Check out these absolute delicious infinity scarves for your mini-me! Okay, I can’t take credit for this adorable find. My sister, Meredith, has cool pouring out of her and always seems to come across awesome, unique pieces such as these. I’ve already ordered one of each for Lulu. There are additional fun patterns and solid options as well. They also come in women’s sizes so you and your peanut can match.  I love how they can’t just slip off of a little neck and get lost – there is so much paraphernalia to worry about in the winter (for ourselves and our kiddies!). Bundle Up Buddies will keep them warm in the winter and add a fun accessory to their outfits throughout the rest of the year.

Bundle Up Buddy, cotton $12-, flannel $14-

This little model definitely makes the scarves look that much cuter, huh?!

Chew On This

Plenty of people have stopped us to adore Lulu’s chewbeads necklace, so I thought I’d share the brand with you.  A friend bought Lucy and I a strand as a ‘welcome baby’ gift and we love them!  One day in my shopping travels I came across their “juniorbeads” line (for kids of all ages). They also offer Major League Baseball necklaces (for game day!), bracelets (for the littles + the bigs) as well as teethers.  The color-way options are amazing – very versatile, but offer a fun “pop” to a mom or child’s wardrobe.

We bought it for Lucy on her 2nd birthday – she was still teething, so I thought it would be a great option for her to bite on as she bopped around. Also, she really started taking notice of my accessories so it is fun for her to have a necklace of her own. They are funky and Lulu adores rocking hers. We’ve given them as baby gifts and birthday party gifts – And, Dear Santa, they make a great stocking stuffer!

A Few Highlights:

+ Easy closure so your child can take it on and off by themselves as they please

+ Kids, not just babies can chew on them – it acts as a great distraction if your child is obsessed with putting his/her hands in their mouth

+ As your child grows, they can wear them to accessorize, like mom

+ Most important – the beads are 100% safe for your child to chew
