When it comes to raising babies, there are several items you just have to have in BULK! Diapers, wipes, and puffs were some of the staples around our house. When it came to purchasing these necessities, I always attempt to find the largest supply at the best price I can. Without memberships to any of the warehouse wholesale “clubs,” we would usually buy from a brick and mortar or online retailer that might not be offering the best value. My life has officially changed for the better now that I know about Boxed.
Dressing my babies is one of my FAVORITE things to do. I literally shop for them more than I shop for myself. Most of the time, they are even dressed better than I am, haha. I end up spending so much money every season, especially on Oliver, because he is growing so quickly. I try to refrain myself from buying them so much, but yall know how it is when all those shops release their new lines. It’s just so hard to not buy! When I found Darling Duck I was SO relieved, and I know Davis was too. Darling Duck is an online monthly subscription where you can borrow affordable outfits and then swap them out whenever you want!
Darling Duck is a monthly subscription-based service that sends you what you need based on the number of outfits you select for your babies. They ship you the clothes and you keep them as long as your baby can wear them. You can send anything back at any time. A return bag, as well as a priority prepaid label, is sent with your order so returns are very easy. Darling Duck offers two bundles: the Mini Bundle provides access to 3 outfits and is ideal for supplementing your baby’s wardrobe, while the Essential Bundle provides access to 6 outfits and can serve most of your baby’s clothing needs. Darling Duck offers boutique quality clothes from 0-24 months, with many top brands including MilkBarn, Finn and Emma, Angel Dear, Spendid, and Toobydoo. Everything we have gotten so far has been really cute and great for play days! You can send back one item or everything from your order as often as you want, so if you get something that isn’t quite your style, it’s no problem! Darling Duck also accepts clothes back in any condition, which is amazing because my boys most certainly know how to make a mess of their clothes no matter how hard I try to prevent it! Another great thing about Darling Duck is that they will let you purchase any outfits you receive that you fall in love with for 60% off retail price. It’s an all-around great resource for keeping your kid’s closets updated without breaking the bank. Darling Duck offers a one-month free trial so you can try it out and cancel it without being charged if it just isn’t for you! I’m so glad that I’ve found out about this company. It’s easy to use, and so much fun getting clothes in the mail!
Last week, we added a new member to our family, and she has quickly become Walt’s new obsession. Everyone meet, “Snacky Horse,” Walt’s new bestie. Snacky Horse is a 6V Plush Ride-On Horse made by Dynacraft. It is one of the cutest, most unique ride-on toys I’ve ever seen.
Baby things, especially newborn things, are super sentimental to me. That newborn stage just goes by WAY too fast. Walt and Oliver’s teenie tiny bodies grew much faster than I could’ve ever imagined. Whenever I hold one of my friends’ newborns, it is just so hard to comprehend that my babies were ever that small. One of the sweetest shops, By Olima, reached out to me about collaborating with their amazing company and I immediately said YES. The wall art she creates is truly the art of your heart.
I’m kinda obsessed with dressing my babies. I swear, I put more time into getting them ready on a daily basis than I do myself. That’s okay though because #momlife. Something that drives me crazy is getting them all dressed up for dinner, sitting them at a table at some nice restaurant, and then having to put some obnoxious bib on them. THE TORTURE. It seriously irked me for all of Walt’s bib wearing days. Lucky for Oliver, I’ve found a company that has fixed my problem!
Being organized is something that is key to my happiness and helps keep my stress level down. If I feel like I’m unorganized or my house gets unorganized, it sometimes makes me feel like somehow my whole life is a wreck. I feel that way about travel too. I like for all of my things to be in a certain place when I pack, and I really like being able to have items stored in their own pockets. Everything just thrown into one bag drives me crazy! When I first put my hands on the Lo and Sons O.G. Bag, I instantly fell in love.
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is still going on through August 6th! Prices go back up on all of their heavily discounted items on August 7th. I’ve had quite a few DMs on Instagram asking about the shoes I was wearing in my previous blog post, so for this post I’ll link all of them with the prices of each!
THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE IS OFFICIALLY OPEN TO EVERYONE! Yay! I’m doing a round-up on my favorite tops that I was lucky enough to score with early access. But first I need to start off by giving Davis some mega props. The first night the sale opened for early access, he got up with me at 4am to shop! He made me coffee while I got to work. It was amazing. He got the best husband award for sure! Now, back to the sale. Items go out of stock rather quickly so don’t wait to purchase something that you really want. On the flip side, Nordstrom is constantly restocking items so it’s possible you could still score something you missed out on if you check back later!
Daniel Wellington is one of my favorite new watch companies. Davis and I both received watches from them two weeks ago, and we are already big fans! Their watches are very well made, and their interchangeable strap feature allows you to dress them up or down. My favorite thing about them is how lightweight they are. When I have it on, I forget I’m even wearing a watch. Big clunky jewelry has been a no-go for me since Oliver started going through the stage of wanting to be held all the time, so these are pretty perfect for me!
