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 😉

Lupin Love

In love with the lupins on our property! There are a few different colours right now but I thought I would just make an appreciation post for each. Loving the purple & white as it is so angelic and delicate! The lupins are giving a real nice pop of colour throughout our overgrown yard.

✧ The best 3 wedding dresses stores for brides! ✧

As wedding season is in full bloom, I’ve been inspired to browse some wedding dresses to see what is around this beautiful 2018 summer of love.  Now let’s not get too excited. The man of my dreams has not asked me to marry him yet but who knows, perhaps some day soon so there is no harm in preparing yourself and having a little peek! 😉

Here are 3 websites to check out on your wedding dress journey!

1. David’s Bridal
2. Angrila
3. Vera Wang

Dainty… angelic.. flowy…  is what I am attracted to. I just love how soft and angelic some dresses are. Here I have chosen a handful of my favourite dresses from Angrila and included a couple other websites to check out if you are in seek of your perfect wedding dress, or even just want to have a peek and perhaps a daydream this afternoon.

A-line / V-neck / Cap Sleeves / Long Bridal Wedding Dress

https://www.angrila.com/collections/brides/products/a-line-v-neck-cap-sleeves-long-bridal-wedding-dresses

This first dress is so lovely and angelic and definitely my favourite out of the three I am sharing today with you. The cut of this dress is just so beautiful and delicate. & all of these dresses are under $200.

A-Line / Princess V-Neck / Chiffon Wedding Dress with Trompete Chiffon Sleeves

https://www.angrila.com/collections/brides/products/a-line-princess-v-neck-chiffon-prom-dresses-with-trompete-chiffon-sleeves

The way this dress sits on the body is so beautiful and dainty. I specifically like the sleeves of this piece as it does come off very angelic.

Embroidered Organza Wedding Dresses with Applique

https://www.angrila.com/collections/brides/products/embroidered-organza-wedding-dresses-with-applique

 For this last piece what I really am in love with is the delicate back of this dress. The embroidery around the neck area and the back are so beautiful and soft.

I feel each piece speaks for itself. Depending if you are a dreamer or your a soon to be bride. I encourage everyone to check out the beautiful styles of wedding dresses there is this season!

Mermaid Pillow Co is a family owned business based out of Omaha, Nebraska. They have been featured on the Today Show, Woman’s Day, Parade & Newsday. I was originally interested in their products because they were beautiful & shiny with inspirational and positive quotes on them. After doing a bit of research I became more appreciative of what they are doing for a movement in children’s health. They have given back to various organizations such as Grief’s Journey, Autism Speaks and the Children’s Hospital. These reversible sequin pillows; parents describe the pillows as “calming”, “addicting” and “a healthy break from the stimulation of electronics.”

I have a pillow and a bracelet to share with you today, the bracelet is the magic unicorn bracelet and this comes in 5 different reversible colours. The bracelets cost $14.99  And the pillow I received is the Imagine Mermaid Pillow which you can buy just the pillow case or buy along with a pillow. There are 17 different variations of pillows to suit every kind of human! The pillows cost $34 – $47.

I feel like this is great for not only children as a lot of us tend to over think things and need something to help take our minds off of stuff along with needing to fidget our ways through things sometimes! This is a cute and fashionable pillow to jazz up any part of your house or outfit.
