ALL WRAPPED UP – We got our very first taste of real winter cold today, not that semi cold/wussy stuff I talked about yesterday – thankfully we were prepared. Patting myself on the back for following through with The Perfect Kids Cold Weather Wears, you know cause sometimes it’s hard to take your own good advice. Our most favorite thing (hands down) that we added to the little winter outfits (that we previously hadn’t used) are the mini mioche snoods – so comfy and so warm. No more bare skin sticking out (usually there is a peak of skin on a neck, little ear or chin), anywhere. Really, I could pull it up over the back of their heads like a turtle hood or heck right over those cute faces.
MASCARA – I decided to branch from my usual mascara, it’s a huge stretch for me to try something new in the world of makeup. I’m an old dog who doesn’t like to learn new tricks when it comes to what I put on my face. I still have heart eyes for the They’re Real! mascara, but I think my favorite mascara might now be more of a toss-up between that and buxom mascara. I really love that you can choose the wand you want with Buxom, it’s a pretty way to get old dogs like me to try something new.
IRON ON LABELS – Kids lose everything, all the time. We can hope and pray that we just might find those lost things again one day, or we can put labels in everything and usually things turn up again. We were gifted this Epson label works label maker, which comes with iron on label tape. It’s just as awesome, handy and fun as it sounds. Now you can label, everything (literally, everything) in your home even clothes. So the kids have a better chance of not losing things, especially all that winter gear. Or just throw labels on everything, for the fun of it – yes, I’m 10 years old.
OVERSIZED TEE – New favorite tee, when it comes to the oversized variety (every different fit of tee requires a favorite). It’s big, like much bigger in fit then the rest and everything just falls on your body, juuuust right. It’s thick and durable so it’s perfect for my Mom brain. I cannot explain how many times I threw something in the dryer when I wasn’t supposed to and totally ruined it, but nope not with this tee.
