Affordable Bamboo / Muslin Cotton Swaddles

If you’re pregnant and on social media like myself it is very easy to get sucked into the many different fads for newborns and babies. I will admit it is rather difficult finding gender neutral colours for baby stuff unless you find yourself in the worm hole of instagram. Because the certain colours of burnt orange, sage green, mustard yellow ect.. are not your everyday baby colours you’d pick up in the store on main, the prices of these different coloured baby items are extremely unaffordable for the average low income family. So I went hunting and usually my first place I like to hunt for affordable alternatives is aliexpress.com . After a while of searching, what do you know.. the same ones pop up on the menu. And i’m not just talking similar ones, i’m talking the exact same ones.

Now, keep in mind that a lot of these “instagram stores” don’t actually make their own products they just find trendy items and mark them up the arse which i’m not complaining about. Cause girl, do yo thang. This babe loves a hustler. Get your hustle on. But keep in mind there are other options and mostly likely the same options for a fraction of the price.

So today i’m sharing these 70% Bamboo Fiber / 30% Muslin Cotton Swaddles. These are super beautiful and extremely soft to the touch. I am in love with the colours and will definitely be ordering a few more. I started off with just ordering 2 unless they really weren’t what I was looking for (which hell yes, they were exactly what I was hoping for! if not better!). These are $9.53 a piece so was under $20 for the 2 of them. These come in 8 different solid colours from this specific item and the shipping cost if free 😉

Lilacs In Full Bloom

Ooh the lilacs are just so lovely aren’t they? We have 3 huge bushes on our property and I couldn’t be more thrilled to make some spring bouquets! As the lilacs are in full bloom, so are my allergies… The beauty of our lush yard weighs out the crazy allergy attacks any day though.

Firmoo Review

firmoo_02

Hey babehhhssss!!! I recently received this complimentary pair of prescription glasses from Firmoo.com .  These frames are hella fly (if you can’t tell!) .. I have ordered glasses from there previously and had a really great experience with their customer service and product. They have a tonnn of frame styles for very very affordable prices, a lot of the time they even have buy 1 get 1 free which is dope if you’re in search of new frames!

I specifically love these new frames because they do not have a bridge piece which can always be a positive or negative outcome. The bridge of my nose is very high on my face so a lot of glasses do not sit properly on my face. So these frames are awesome for that!

Another detail that I really love is the dusty rose coloured arms of the frames. Which makes them very dainty and feminine against the gold rims.

I will be doing a separate blog post on the bath products when it cools down enough to take a bath! I received two delicious smelling bathbombs in the flavours creamsicle & black cherry.

$6.25 Black Cherry Bathbomb: http://peytonalex.com/collections/bath-body/products/black-cherry-bath-bomb

They also handmake these delightful sugar scrubs! I received two kinds “Rose” & “Rainforest”. The rose scrub smells a bit citrusy and really lovely. It was a bit more oily on the top than the rainforest scrub which leaked into the package a bit, but didn’t damage anything and just made everything smell really lovely ^.^ Made with fabulous ingredients to treat the skin.

The rainforest scrub scent is well described because I wasn’t able to describe the smell otherwise! Very refreshing and nurturing ^.^ This feels really divine on the skin, which I will be making a separate post on in the near future ^.^
