This little ditty bag should be in your summer collection ASAP! It’s stylish, waterproof, and TOTALLY practical. I do not typically “get into” the Vera Bradley print collections, but this bag everyone should own. I’ve been using mine all summer long and have thrown into the wash with our bathing suits after swimming. This little ditty keeps your wet clothing separated nicely from dry clothes when carried together. The lining inside is waterproof and can be easily wiped clean. Why not make the many bags that you carry to the pool or beach at least look adorable!
There are SO many new hair tie options these days and I generally like to try them all. Shopping for new hair accessories is fun, especially when you have girls that like to experiment with hair styles. However, I must say that I ALWAYS return to my absolute favorite, France Lux “Grab & GO” hair ties. I have owned the same pack for nearly ten years, and they do run at a higher price tag. However, they don’t pull my hair, are great for buns, capture all of my hair, are soft, wide, thick, and stay in during tough work-outs (the true test:). If you are in the market for a perfect hair tie, try these out!

This slogan speaks for itself and happens to be my life mantra “Shopping is my Cardio”. Not only does Wildfox make sassy garbs, the tees and sweat shirts are EXTREMELY comfortable. They are soft to the touch and all are fleece lined. After I purchased my first Wildfox tee I was hooked and have since purchased many more. They wash well and ALWAYS look adorable on but no one realizes how comfortable they are. Most Wildfox sweatshirts average around $40-$50 depending on where you decide to purchase. I have also discovered that some retailers have exclusives with Wildfox and have one-of-a-kind style slogans. If you are in the market for a comfy tee or sweatshirt, Wildfox NEVER disappoints. Check out their website here: https://www.wildfox.com/ and if you sign up they give you a 20% off as an added bonus!
Seriously in LOVE with Thread Up and everything about their business for online consignment. You simply order a clean out bag from the site www.thredup.com, clean out your closet, fill up the bag, drop it off at the Post Office, and wait to get paid! Additionally, I order a donation bag for the items that are not considered sellable condition that go to a great cause and are s tax write off. My favorite thing about Thred Up is how environmentally and fashionably friendly. Definitely a house fashion fave!
I had two trips planned within two weeks and was looking for a mini bag on wheels that I could easily navigate. My first trip was a six hour flight with my six and one year old, and the second was a two-day work training. This bag could not have been more perfect! It was so easy to get in and out of each security check-point with it’s separate laptop/ iPad sleeve. It is on wheels which ALWAYS makes life easier when you travel. The side pockets come equipped with a portable charger and water bottle pocket. I was able to score a deal at the Samsonite Outlet for about $75 but there are different color variations and sizes. I highly recommend this Underseater as a permanent travel buddy, you won’t be disappointed!

For my first child, a diaper bag was a very important purchase because it had to be just right. After long debate and nearly purchasing a designer diaper bag with a hefty price tag (I guess this is what happens when you are fashion obsessed), I settled for a diaper bag from Saks Fifth Ave. After two years, I had no future use for it and eventually donated it. Not to mention, my husband had his own “Dude Diaper Bag”. For my second, I was a lot more thrifty and decided to get creative. I stopped into a TUMI store and the a salesperson demonstrated this backpack which came highly recommended. I have to say, hands down the BEST investment. There are what seems like a million hidden pockets that fit everything you could possibly need. My husband easily carries around as it is unisex. I didn’t hesitate with the price because it comes with a 20 year warranty. We have made several doctors appointments, zoo trips, flown (there’s a slit for suitcase), and play dates. As my children grow older, this will be used for more adventures and less diapers. Consider a TUMI- you won’t be sorry!
