Um, hi? It’s been awhile…we’ve been BUSY (see: Baby Ed and Baby James). We’ve got a few things cooking right now, including a revamp of our website. In the meantime, we’re working on posting more regularly.
Supposedly it’s spring…but it’s f-f-freezing in Georgia this week! Not great for those of us wanting to bust out our new spring stuff. The upside is that we’re getting more wear out of our winter pieces, like these amazing Sorel “Cate the Great” boots (they have a hidden wedge heel – so comfy). View all the outfit details here. Or follow us on Insta and use the Emoticode app (what, you don’t have it already?) to view our outfit details in an easy-to-shop format.
We blinked and Baby James is almost 4 months old! He’s the sweetest, happiest little boy (see instagram.)
I was thinking the other day about when I was pregnant and how I would comb pinterest and blogs looking for must-have items for baby. Now that James has arrived, I feel I have recommendations of my own to share! I’m a mom. It’s wild.
We alternate between honest diapers and pampers swaddlers. They both work great for us, but honest diapers aren’t available on amazon. If you don’t have a prime membership, get on that.
Honest wipes are the only way to go. Buy them in bulk at Target.
Okay. Our bathtub. Kind of obsessed with it. The Aquascale 3 in 1 tub tells you the temp of your water before you put baby in, works for infants and toddlers, and the best feature… it has a built in scale. It may sound silly, but we love weighing him at bath time and tracking his growth!
Mustela products are by far the best. I keep their face wipes with me at all times for a quick spit up clean up. The foam shampoo is amazing (and great for clearing up cradle cap!) Just started using the hydra stick for forehead flakes. Game changer.
Swaddles. There are a million available and we bought most of them. WITH THAT, Halo Sleepsack Swaddles win the game. Period. We also used Swaddle Me swaddles prior to discovering Halo and they were good!
So Sunday is Mother’s Day. As a mom and a mom-to-be-very-soon, we’d love a new pair of Jacks…or a pair of TOMS sunglasses…or a Votivo candle…you get our drift. Pretty sure our moms would love these, too! They’re all available at our fave boutique, Sole Statesboro. Call 912-764-7463 to order – mention GLITTER and get 10% off.
J: Ah the pouf. You know you have a chair that could use one. GUESS WHAT. They’re on sale at Land of Nod through 4.18. We scooped the white version for Baby James’ nursery shown below (With my moms dog, Bella. High pony on POINT.) Looking for gold? Silver? MINT? They have those too. FYI: they arrive stuffed. X0
You guys. This week has been a little insane. We’ve had photo shoots, work deadlines, meetings galore…plus a few life hiccups, including RAIN literally every single day (which is why you haven’t seen any outfit pics. How many more times can we post about our trusty anoraks and Hunter boots?).
Our cure for a stressful week? Indulging in a little retail therapy. Starting today, you can shop the Black Friday sale on www.shopsoledish.com. Use code BLACKFRIDAY15 and take 25% off everything on the site…from now until November 29! Scoop a sparkly holiday dress or cozy fur vest and watch those cares melt awayyyy….
Know what else helps after a stressful week? Grabbing a drink with a good friend! We’re meeting up in Athens on Saturday for the Georgia / Georgia Southern game. Follow us on Instagram (@glitter_blog_xo) to see our adventures, and if you’re there too tag us in your pics!
