The iPad is a great product for moms on the go. I found that I love my desktop computer for all of my design work, but for quick internet access and convenience hands down this takes the cake, hands down.

5- HUNTER BOOTS
I would be lost without these. They are oh so practical, comfortable, durable, and hip. What did I ever do in bad weather before these???? For cold days try the Hunter boot liners for extra coziness.

Vitamin D was recommended to me by my midwife, and has played such a crucial role in my personal,  as well as my family’s health regimen. I have been taking vitamin D since the birth of my son sixteen months ago. This is the longest I have gone EVER with out being sick.

10- BEST PRODUCT DESIGN/CHEWBEADS
I love the combination of design and function for the product CHEWBEADS. The CEO Lisa, hit the nail right on the head with this product. This teething accessory is non toxic, and dishwater safe. I have worn my Chewbeads necklaces to many events with my little one, and often get stopped and complimented on them before anyone ever even knows its a teething aid.

Favorite Online Shopping For Moms, Babies, and Kids


Blue 'Blogged Life' Tee - Toddler & Boys

One of my favorite online sites happens to be Zulily.com.  Zulily carries tons of sale products for moms, babies, and kids. Before having my son, I really didn’t do too much online shopping, but i have to say, I have become mildly obsessed with this site over the last year. My phone is equipped with the zulily app, and I check it regularly.   Ok, so let me give you the rundown.   Everyday there are different deals.  Each deal only runs for a maximum of three days.  Once you make your first purchase on any given day, and pay shipping, you can continue to shop until midnight and receive free shipping on all additional orders placed that same day.   I can’t even tell you how much money I’ve saved shopping for my baby on this site.  One warning though, they do not allow returns, so i usually only buy for him, not so much for myself, because i am not one of those lucky girls that can order clothes online . . . I have to try everything on.  I love Zulily because I am able to purchase quality clothing for a fraction of the retail cost. This makes shopping for hip, high end clothing, achievable on a budget.  I just purchased this shirt (above) by RaR  boys yesterday for less than 50% off the original price. I couldn’t resist, and how stinkin’ appropriate?  Some of my favorite brands often show up on this site, such as: SCKC, Kate Quinn Organics, Zutano, and more. If anyone else out there falls into the Zulily obsession, let me know, i would love to hear that I’m not the only one. Happy shopping!
