Burt's Bees Baby for Back to School

I know you guys hear a LOT from me about Burt's Bees Baby, but I wouldn't share their products with you if I didn't love them myself.  I have loved being able to work with them, trying out their products and clothing in exchange for sharing my experience and review with you.  I absolutely LOVE having two boys close together (most the time) and dressing them similar.  It has been so fun- more fun than dressing a girl for me.  I would say that 30% of their clothing is Burt's Bees Baby and I think that might be part of why I have loved dressing boys.

That being said, this year is Macsen's first year in Preschool and I could not be more excited about it!  I am excited for him to learn and grow and make new friends.  I am excited to dress him cute for school and even on the days he wants to dress himself it is comforting to know that I love pretty much everything in his closet and that most of his clothing is mix and match.  I think its really good for kids to get to choose their clothing for the day and one of the first things that they can do that helps them learn to be independent.  Burt's Bees Baby has many mix and match options for kids and their clothing is all very comfortable- two of the most important qualities of children's clothing in my opinion.

Here are some of my favorites from their Fall line:

For the boys:

 For the girls:

Right now they have 25% off their basics so hurry over to get that deal!

Traveling with the Yezz Stroller

Traveling with kids can be stressful enough, it doesn't help to have too many things and a difficult stroller.  This is where the Quinny Yezz stroller can come in and make things easier for you.

If you are looking for a durable version of an umbrella stroller that will last you through multiple kids and that rides much smoother and easier through more rugged terrain, you may be interested in the Yezz stroller from Quinny.  The Yezz is more balanced and a little heavier than the typical umbrella stroller so it doesn't tip over constantly (one of my pet peeves)

 The straps are easily adjustable to last your kids through their toddler years (6 months to 40 lbs.) and easy to unclasp for a quick escape- something my boys sure need!  The hammock seat is very comfortable for them and is made with a repellent fabric- also very important to have with my messy boys ;)  Another fun thing about the hammock seat is that it is interchangeable!  You can have every color you would like :)

Super easy to fold up and includes a carrying strap that makes going anywhere possible- stairs, hills, planes, trains, buses, etc!  I love the versatility and that I can bring one backpack-like stroller along that either Jensen or Macsen can ride in- makes my life easier!

I love the look of this stroller and it comes in lots of color and pattern options:

Also for those of you looking for something a little different, you might want to look into the Zapp Xtra- I love this cream one but it also has different color options:

Beginning July 1stthe Zapp Xtra will be available at select retailers for only $299. A great value compared to the original retail price of $349.99!
The Zapp Xtra is a stylish, sleek, and lightweight stroller with a compact fold for easy transport. The stroller features a reversible seat allowing baby to face mom or the world. In addition, it can be used from birth as a travel system and comes with adapters for Maxi-Cosi infant car seats.  
Retailers for Quinny include Albee Baby, PishPosh Baby, BuyBuy Baby and more.

Of One Sea

So I am sorry to brag, but I am so excited about this trip that I just have to share.  We are planning a trip to Kauai next Spring for our 10 year anniversary and I totally have Hawaii on the brain!  I cannot stop thinking about it.  It didn't help to get an awesome package from Of One Sea last week either.. 

It came complete with amazing swimsuits for the boys, the perfect boyfriend tee for me, and a cute little bag of shells, sea-glass, and lava rock!  If that doesn't make you crave Hawaii nothing will!  I will definitely be wearing my tee to Kauai next year- more on my packing list later...along with my travel plans on the island- I will need all the feedback from all of you I can get!

I just have to share more about this company though-

OF ONE SEA is a unity-inspired surf and lifestyle brand based on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawai'i. Our inspiration comes from the simple forms and beauty found in nature which we aim to translate into comfortable and stylish pieces for the whole family.

The boys were sent these adorable and well-made swim trunks that I put on them multiple times a week- even if we aren't going swimming because they are THAT cute.

I pretty much want everything on their site!  Here are some of my very favorite things though:

Don't these products just make you crave Hawaii?  Go check out more of what they have to offer- they have some great sales right now too!

A special thanks to Of One Sea for sponsoring this post!
