This time of year is my absolute favorite. Spending quality time with family and friends adds so much happiness to my heart. Whether my family is going to holiday dinners or staying indoors with cozy pjs, I love that Carter’s has Avery covered for the cutest holiday clothing. What I love about Carters’ clothing is that it is great quality AND their prices are very affordable. That’s a win in my book!

Carter's Polar Bear Pjs

I’ve been buying pjs from Carter’s since Avery was born and I love the holiday prints they have. They’re perfect for Christmas morning and even before (because who doesn’t celebrate Christmas all month long?). You can check out there pajama shop HERE.

Carter’s holiday outfits are adorable! They have a huge selection of Holiday Outfits HERE. I bought Avery the cutest black dress with flower embroidery. It’s seriously so darling. To match, I bought her some black boots. As soon as I put her in it she immediately put her legs backwards beside her head which cracked me up. I love her wild and goofy personality.

The quality of this dress is soooo nice. It feels velvety and the embroidery is so beautiful.

It’s the perfect dress for a holiday dinner or party!

Another outfit I love that I got from Carter’s holiday shop is this  red, plaid top and black leggings. Plaid is perfect for fall and I love this outfit because it can be used in Christmas pictures. I’m planning on doing our first ever professional family pictures soon so I’m way excited to have her wear this outfit. It’s also great for casual or dressy outings!

Shaklee Youth Skincare for Anti-Aging

Shaklee Youth Skincare Set

You all know from previous posts that I am an advocate for great skincare. I love choosing products with natural ingredients. Well, I am very excited to tell you all about Shaklee YOUTH products!

Shaklee Youth Skincare

Shaklee YOUTH products are made to help aging by remedying it at the cellular level. What impresses me about Shaklee’s products is the fact that they have a comprehensive “free of” list of over 2,500 chemicals that never touch their products. So you know you’re putting only good things on your face.

The three products I was sent from the Shaklee YOUTH Skincare Set are:

YOUTH Activating Serum – This is a blend of vitamins, polyphenols (micronutrients), and YOUTH complex which helps support collagen production. You apply this twice daily and only have to use 1-1 1/2 pumps each use. I like how nourishing and moisturizing this serum is. I have very dry skin so this serum is perfect for me.

Shaklee YOUTH Radiance C + E

YOUTH Radiance C + E – This is used to “plump, brighten and visibly reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles”. It contains 20% pure Vitamin C, raspberry extract, as well as Vitamin E. I love the fact that these are single dose capsules that you can burst open when you need them. 

Shaklee YOUTH Activating BB Cream

YOUTH Activating BB Cream with SPF 30 – A 5-in-1 beauty balm that : nourishes, protects, evens, corrects and hydrates! This beauty balm comes in 4 shades. I do think it should come in more so it can work with more complexions, but, I like this BB cream. There are Vitamins C, E, and B5 as well as muscadine grape polyphenols in this. The Muscadine Grape Polyphenols help protect against free-radicals and the Vitamins nourish your skin and help it feel soft and hydrated. Green algae in the cream helps to bring firmness to the skin. 

YOUTH Radiance C + E

YOUTH Activating BB Cream SPF 30

I’ve been really liking these products. As you get older like me, you realize that excellent skincare with top-notch ingredients is important. Definitely check out Shaklee’s YOUTH products. They are 100% cruelty-free and vegan which is definitely nice too.

*These products were sent to me free of charge for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Beddy’s Zipper Bedding

Does any one else hate making their bed in the morning? Having to readjust the sheets because the corners have popped off, or having to get the blankets to sit just right can be daunting sometimes. Luckily, I’ve found a product called Beddy’s that helps remedy all of those problems.

Beddy’s are one-piece bedding sets that go on like a fitted sheet. Their blanket is attached by zippers and the sheet is part of the blanket! It’s really pretty fascinating.

A few things I love about Beddy’s 

  1. There are zippers on both sides of the bedding, so if you want to put your arms or legs outside of the blankets, you can. What is great is that you have extra fabric that folds out on the sides so you still have coverage even if you’ve unzipped the Beddy’s. I particularly love the zippers on both sides so my husband and I can be comfortable in our own ways.
  2. You can purchase your Beddy’s with minky fabric on the inside. It’s so cozy.
  3. There are deep pockets for fitting the Beddy’s around the mattress so you don’t have to worry about your bedding popping off.
  4. The designs are very cute. They have designs for everyone’s tastes.
  5. Easy enough for kids to use! They can make their beds every day.

Things I dislike about Beddy’s

  1. The bedding, while soft and luxurious, holds on to lint.
  2.  The fabric for the bedding can stay fairly wrinkly after coming out of the dryer, so you do need to iron or steam it.

All-in-all, I absolutely love the ease of using Beddy’s. I think Beddy’s bedding is revolutionary and it’s perfect for both children and adults. I never want to go back to the typical sheet and comforter.

Check out Beddy’s here: WEBSITE | INSTAGRAM

P.S. Right now, Beddy’s has a BOGO sale going on! That’s BUY ONE GET ONE!! So purchase yours now. Keep an eye out for a Black Friday deal coming up as well.

North States Superyard® Classic Play Yard Review

North States Superyard® Classic Pink

If you have very little children who are crawling, climbing, and walking around — you probably need a play yard. North States makes some of the most versatile and easy-to-assemble play yards on the market.

I found North States through my friend’s Insta Story several months back and I loved how her little one had so much space to roam in his play yard. Not only that, but he seemed happy toddling along inside. He wasn’t off getting into mischief while she did chores and other things around the house.

Avery is nearly one and she gets into EVERYTHING! She climbs, pulls items around the house onto the floor, crawls super fast and walks along the couch. Having a play yard is a lifesaver for me and I know it is for many moms.

North States Superyard® Classic in color "Pink"

Things I Love About the Superyard® Classic Play Yard

  • Avery is able to be in a safe environment with her toys or whatever I place inside with her.
  • I am able to get chores done without having to carry Avery around with me.
  • The superyard can be made into either a square, hexagon or octagon. You can add a two panel extension to make the space inside that much larger.
  • It is tall and Avery is not able to climb out of it.
  • There is a variety of colors you can choose from. I love PINK, obviously. 😀
  • It is very easy to assemble — no tools required (see diagram below).
  • You can put your pets in it as well to keep them safe in one spot.
  • Messes are a breeze to clean!
  • It is made in the USA which is something I love to support! 🙂

North States Superyard Classic Diagram

Superyard Features

  • 26 inches in height.
  • 18.5 sq ft enclosure — with 2 panel extender, you get a 34 sq ft enclosure.
  • Non-slip pads to help keep floor from being scratched.
  • Folds for transportation and storage.
  • Panels connect by a spring mechanism that holds a pin into a cylinder by pushing down.
  • Made of plastic.

North States Superyard® Classic Pink

I’ve been really loving North States Superyard® Classic. It is easy to use and it keeps my daughter out of harm’s way when I am busy. The price point is great for this playpen as well. You can find it at Walmart for just $69.99. They have a few colors for this particular play yard.

North States actually has an abundance of different play yards as well as baby gates so definitely check them out!

The Perfect Baby and Toddler Carrier from LÍLLÉbaby

LÍLLÉbaby 6-in-1 carrier

Baby carriers have come in handy for me, as a new mom, more times than I can even count. I love them! I had to tell you about this awesome 6-in-1 carrier I was given to review from LÍLLÉbaby. It’s called the Complete All Seasons 6-in-1 Carrier. It’s honestly one of the coolest carriers on the market.

LÍLLÉbaby All Seasons Carrier

Let me first tell you about all of the many different positions you can use to hold your child in this LÍLLÉbaby carrier! There are 6 positions you can use.

LÍLLÉbaby Complete All Seasons Breathable 3D Mesh 6-in-1 Carrier

  1. Fetal – Great for very little babies (newborn-3 months old). Your baby’s neck is supported and they’re face-to-face with you so they’re protected from their surroundings.
  2. Infant – This position is perfect for when your baby has outgrown the fetal hold, but they’re not quite ready for a wide-seated position. The narrow seat is a great for your little one’s back, thighs and behind. There is also a cover for if you want to nurse on the go or if you want to cover your baby from the elements (rain, snow, etc.).
  3. Face Out – Perfect for babies 6 months and up who have strong neck support and can hold up their head on their own. I personally love this hold because my daughter can look around at her surroundings and take everything in.
  4. Toddler – This hold is great for a sleepy babe. They can lay their head on your chest and listen to your heartbeat. My daughter has passed out many times in this position. Ages 6m+
  5. Hip – The hip position is a hold that a lot of parents are used to. Without a carrier, most parents hold their babies on their hips. It helps to take the pressure off of your lower back. This position is perfect for getting certain chores/tasks done. I know with a baby in the front, I can'[t always sweep or do dishes how I’d like so I love this alternative position. 6m+
  6. Back – If you’re going to be wearing a baby for a long time or if you’re carrying a larger child, this position is great. It takes the pressure off of your lower back and keeps the center of gravity inside the carrier. Your baby is able to sit comfortably.

This carrier is literally the perfect all-in-one carrier. Here are some other features for this carrier.

  1. Lumbar Support – I LOVE that this carrier includes lumbar support. Carrying around a 20lb+ baby all the time can be exhausting on your body. I love that the lumbar support is super comfortable and that it works really well. I never have lower back pain while using this carrier.
  2. Two-Way Strap – You can use the straps like a backpack, or you can cross them in the back which makes nursing and other tasks much easier. I actually have some friends who nurse on the go in their carriers.
  3. Sleeping Hood – Perfect for nursing on the go. The sleeping hood is also great for when your baby is asleep. You don’t have to worry about their head flopping around and hurting their neck. It also protects the baby against the elements (wind, rain, sun).
  4. Pocket – There is a pocket with a zipper that makes it easy to store cash or extra essentials when you’re out and about.
  5. Tall and Extendable Torso – Great for taller children. It helps support their necks and backs.
  6. Padded Shoulder Straps and Waist Belt – These are awesome for evenly distributing your child’s weight. It makes the carrier so comfortable to wear.

All-in-all, I love the LÍLLÉbaby Complete All Seasons 6-in-1 Carrier. One of the only things I would change is that in order to put your child in the carrier, you must take your shoulder straps off and place the baby inside. With my Infantino carrier, I’m able to unclip 2 snaps and I can place the baby inside and clip them back. I find the Infantino just a tad bit easier to put on by myself, but I do like the LÍLLÉbaby carrier a lot.
