Baby Gear Drive Thru? Yes, please.

screen-shot-2016-04-05-at-3-07-31-pm

Hello, hello!! Long time no talk! AH! You know how it goes… Mom Life.

Even though my kiddos are 3 1/2 and 2 1/2, I find myself STILL browsing baby gear websites and needing all the new goodies!!! The struggle is real my friends. I’ve said it more than once, I am strolling my son into his College dorm in a stroller… I just can’t give them up.

Anyways… during my most recent stint of insomnia, I stumbled upon babycubby.com. It’s a super cute website featuring all the latest and greatest in the baby gear world. Awesome. But a little icon appeared that said “Free shipping. We price match”. Those are two things I love. I can’t help it. I love a good deal! I mean, they even price match Amazon. #sold

After browsing their website and seeing some super cool things they do that made me sad I don’t live in Utah… or have an infant. First off, they have DRIVE UP ORDERING. Yes. It’s like a drive thru for baby gear. I mean… can we talk about it!!  As if that wasn’t enough to make every Mom jump for joy, they also have a TRACK inside of their store to test strollers!!!! If I walked into this store, it would be a disaster. I would be in there for hours just running around the track all day testing every stroller possible. How awesome is that though? It’s so hard to get a feel for a stroller pushing it through tiny isles in a crowded baby store. A track is GENIUS.

Ok, back to what I came here to do! I thought I would pop back in and share a few of my fave picks from their website for new parents! Finding the perfect gear can be a daunting task… hopefully this will make it a little easier… if it doesn’t, scroll down and let Baby Cubby do the picking FOR YOU!

  1. DaVinci Jenny Lind Stationary Crib with Toddler Rail – So so so cute!!! It converts into a toddler bed and a day bed, has 4 adjustable mattress positions and is finished in non-toxic multi-step painting process. I am totally in love with this crib!!

2. Clek Fllo Convertible Car Seat – If you have ben doing any research on Car Seats and safety, you have definitely seen the Clek! This Car Seat is AMAZING. It can be used from 5 lbs (with the Clek insert) up to 65 lbs! I cannot say enough great things about this Car Seat. Go to Baby Cubby and check it out!!!

3. Stokke Tripp Trapp – This thing is the bomb. It’s cute, lasts FOREVER, and is easy to wipe clean. I don’t think I need to say anything else. ha!

4. Ju Ju Be B.F.F. Diaper Bag – Saved the best for last. THEY CARRY JU JU BE!!!  I LOVE JJB. For so many reasons!! Machine washable (if you don’t think this is important, talk to me when your kid has its first blowout diaper), cute, fictional, lot’s of pockets. I love pockets. Do yourself a favor and waddle your pregnant self into this store and shop your heart out.

If you don’t love any of my picks… that’s cool. No hard feelings. Baby Cubby can help you with that because they also offer Baby Gear Bundles. I can’t even. I would have done this is a hot second when I was pregnant! Literally takes the guess-work out and they pretty much do everything short of delivering your baby for you. If they could do that, I would for sure have another child…

 

Do yourself a favor and visit this store or their website. I love everything they carry! They have researched these products, and make sure us parents are getting quality products we will love!   They have an awesome community blog with tons of info to help you stay in-the-know  during those sleepless nights, too!

Happy Strolling, friends!

Austin & Fowler Diaper Bag

 

I’ve been seriously crushin’ on the Austin & Fowler Diaper Bags for a while. I was drawn to them because they don’t look like your typical diaper bag and are super stylish! Since I don’t carry around a purse these days, my diaper bag is somewhat of an accessory. I want it to look good yet still be functional for life with two kids. The Austin and Fowler bags are just that and here is why I love them! #getreadytofallinlove

IMG_0606

Style: The bag is classy and will never go out of style. The design is sophisticated (think stripes and beautiful prints, not elephants and teddy bears). I don’t feel like I am carrying around a diaper bag, and anyone that sees me carrying around this beauty wouldn’t think it’s meant to hold diapers and sippy cups. It’s BEAUTIFUL and you feel good carrying the bag! The bags are actually designed by a Mom and you can tell. It’s thoughtfully designed and perfect for us Mom’s on the go!

IMG_0726

Detail: This detail is bananas! B-A-N-A-N-A-S! I love me some Gwen Stefani and you guys know I throw in some lyrics any chance I get… HA! Ok, back on track.  The bags have beautiful leather accents including leather bottoms with luggage feet making it durable. The leather pulls on the zippers of the removable pouches are embossed and labeled “diapers & wipes” “clothes & extras”, etc. The pulls are also removable so you can switch up the pouches to what works best for you… Hello!! How brilliant is that!?! I can’t. It’s little things like this that make me swoon.

IMG_0604

Comfort: It’s comfortable to carry! The top handle straps are adjustable so you can get just the right fit and the messenger strap allows you to carry this so many ways! I always appreciate longer straps when it comes to a Diaper Bag and the option to wear is cross-body. When I’m out with the kids, I need to have both hands free because they are usually running in opposite directions. Not everyone loves a backpack style bag, so this is the perfection option. Another plus is that it’s not heavy… I was expecting the bag to be heavy once it’s full but somehow it’s light-weight. Not sure what kind of sorcery is going on here but I’m digging it.

 

Durable: Because of the leather bottom and luggage feet, this bag is going to LAST YOU!!! I read about people complaining of their diaper bag falling apart after a few short months and this is not going to happen with the Austin & Fowler bags. This will work as your diaper bag and easily transition to your travel bag or tote when you are past the diaper bag stage. This is an investment piece that will stand the test of time so make sure to take care of it. This is not your average diaper bag, folks!

IMG_0605

Functional: You all know how much I LOVE staying organized. The interior of the bag has plenty of pockets and included removable pouches that help you stay as organized as you want! You have a place to put diapers, wipes, clothing, snacks, toys, etc. There is no guessing or digging through your bottomless pit of a bag to find what you needs. It’s all there in your pouches! The interior and pouches are in a bright color so everything is easy to find if you decide to forego the use of the pouches. I have the Blake bag with Fuchsia lining and it’s STUNNING!!!! In addition to the bottle pockets on the inside, the bag also features a zippered pock on the outside that is for all of your Mommy needs. I keep my wallet, cell phone, sunglasses, keys, lip gloss, etc. in the outside pocket for easy access to all of my goodies. I love that it’s separate from the kids necessities and easy to get to. Simply perfect!

IMG_0603

I could go on and on about these bags. I honestly could! I fell in love with them when I first saw their photos on Instagram and then fell hardcore when the Blake arrived on my doorstep. It felt and looked luxurious but still met all of my needs as a Mom. I’d be lying if I said I couldn’t wait until the kids are completely out of diapers and the sippy cup stage because I am ready for the bag to be all MINE. This would make the perfect work tote or weekender and adds a touch of style to my everyday Mom uniform. A.K.A leggings, t-shirt, messy bun. Don’t get me wrong, I love my Mom uniform, but my Austin & Fowler bag makes me feel a little more put together when I leave the house! I take all the extra help I can get. #messyhairdontcare

Hip Cub Diaper Bag Review + Giveaway!

Happy New Year!!! I am so excited to be kicking off 2016 with this review, and, of course, a giveaway for you guys!

To enter the giveaway, click HERE!!

I love this Hip Cub diaper bag!  The Black & White Stripes and dark tan accent on the top handles, messenger strap and pockets, make such a perfect match. The bag is spacious and features a total of 3  pockets  on the inside. There are two pockets with elastic at the top,  and one zippered pocket to keep any extra necessities you need for the day. I use this pocket as my “mommy pocket”,  but,  I think this would also be a great spot to keep band aids, medicine, etc. for the kids! On either side of the bag are two hidden bottle pockets that rock my world, and 2 large external pockets in the front. So many possibilities for organization… that makes my OCD self super happy 😉

IMG_5813

The Hip Cub Diaper Bag also comes with a changing pad and stroller clips! Love it! The stroller clips are such a great accessory, and a total must have. They are fabulous for attaching your Diaper Bag to the handlebar (be careful though,  you never want to hang too much weight from your handlebar!) or the frame of the stroller,  to leave you storage basket open for extras. These are also great to use on a shopping cart for groceries, Target, etc.  Seriously, so convenient and I love that they come with the bag! #hipcubforthewin

Check out my video review below and get a closer look at this super fun bag!

Good luck, everyone!!!

ATST Holiday Gift Guide 2015

Ho, ho, ho! The Holiday season is here, and that means it’s time to stop procrastinating, and start shopping! #haventboughtonethingyet #theresstilltime

This post is dedicated to all those Husbands (hey babe, make sure you read this!!) out there trying to figure out what in the hell to get their Baby Gear loving Wife for the Holidays. Have no fear gentlemen, I’ve got you covered!!

  1.   Ju Ju Be Super Be in First Lady ($60.00)

_8914281

The Ju-Ju-Be Super Be is probably my favorite bag they have. It’s so roomy and versatile, every Mama needs one in her collection! You can use this as a diaper bag, over night bag, gym bag, work, bag, etc. The possibilities are endless! The Super Be comes in so many fun prints, but, my favorite is the First Lady! Black and white stripes never go out of style are a great way to make our “Mom Dress Code” (aka yoga pants and a messy bun) look a little  more put together!

 

2. Thule Urban Glide or Urban Glide 2 ($399.95 single and $649.95 double on Amazon)

IMG_4887

Thule is on this list for a few reasons. 1. It’s starting to snow and it’s freakishly cold outside. It sucks. Sometime around March your wife will decide that she wants to get active, get outside and go for a run with the kids. This will most likely never happen (or maybe I’m just the only lazy one)… BUT, it’s still nice to have the option and a stroller that candle snowy terrains!  2. The basket has a zippered cover that keeps everything safe and protected from not so great weather! Love that! 3. It’s really pretty!  Yes, that is a real reason. The Urban Glide or Urban Glide 2 are even great for every day use because they’re fairly light weight, easy to fold, and can handle anything from errands to a long run in the frigid cold.

 

3. 7AM Polar WarMMuffs  ($44.00)

IMG_4893

Winter is here and it’s here to stay. Keep those hands toasty warm while you’re pushing the little one around in this miserable weather. I love this as a gift for Moms and Dads because it’s probably not something you would typically get for yourself. This is one of those gifts you’ll get, and wonder how you ever lived without them!

 

4.  Nuna Leaf ($229.95)

IMG_4895

The Nuna Leaf is a super cozy bouncer for your baby…or even toddler! It’s compact so it doesn’t take up too much space, and it will actually look great in your living room! Plus, it holds up to 130 lbs!!! Talk about bang for your buck. Toddlers can sit in this seat and be totally comfortable! Hell, I can sit in the seat and be comfortable! A safe, comfortable place for your child to sit is a must have! How else are you suppose to go to the bathroom alone!?!  #justaddedthistomychristmaslist

 

5. UPPAbaby G-LINK ($499.99 – $529.00)

IMG_4890

Yesssssssss! The G-LINK is here!! It’s new and everyone with two kids wants one!! This little gem weighs in at 24.5 lbs, each seat holds up to 50 lbs, has independent flat reclines, can be used from birth (comes with two infant head supports), AND folds in one easy step! Make running errands with the babes a little easier for everyone and pre-order the UPPAbaby G-LINK!! #justdoit

 

6. Wine

Do I even need to explain myself here? To make this gift extra special, get THIS super amazing wine tumblr…

 

7. Ju Ju Be Be Prepared ( $200.00)

IMG_4892

If you are in the market for a new diaper bag, travel bag, or overnight/hospital bag, the Be Prepared is just what you’ve been looking for. It’s BIG!! There are so many pockets to keep the bag organized, and a Mommy Pocket for all of your Mommy needs. I love this bag so much! It’s every over-packers dream bag! The pockets keep everything in its place and my OCD self happy. If you want to bring everything and the kitchen sink with you when you leave the house, the Be Prepared is for you. It’s a winner for sure!

 

8. Hunter Boots ($150.00)

IMG_4894

Like how put these one on here, ladies? These are a total necessity! Sloshing through the snow with two kids is a nightmare. Especially when your boots are getting all wet, and snow is getting inside! Hunter Boots are perfect for winter. Just pair them with their fleece liners and you have super cute, easy to clean winter boots! Plus, grab these in red and pair them with that First Lady Super Be or Queen of the Nile Ju-Ju-Be above and you are looking like one hot mama!!

 

9. Nuna Tavo ($349.95)

nuna-tavo-stroller-mykonos-3

Clearly, I have a thing for Nuna. I know I’m not alone though! The Nuna Tavo is a new light weight stroller that has everything you’re looking for.  Super flat recline, spacious seat that holds up to 50 lbs, large basket, compact fold, and easy-peasy push! I’ll take one in every color, please! Any stroller loving Mama (or Dad) will absolutely love adding the Tavo to their line-up.

 

10. Tula Baby Carrier ($149.00)

endeering_large

Caw, Caw!! Tula in the Wild!!! If you are a Tula lover, you know what that was all about. If you’re not, then you probably think I’ve officially lost my mind! I LOVE, like, seriously love, Tulas! They are soooo comfortable and come in the most adorable prints and colors! How cute is the “enDEERing” print pictured!? Tulas are Ergonomic Baby Carriers. They come in Standard and Toddler size, and are comfortable for the kids and leave your back, pain-free. If you get one baby carrier, make it this one. You won’t regret it!

 

11. Bugaboo Donkey (I refuse to put the price as it may deter the Husbands from buying…LOL)

bugaboo_donkey_build

If you really want to splurge on a gift for your loved one, this would be the ultimate baby gear gift. If you’ve gone one child, this stroller is one bad mama jama! There’s an awesome side basket you use in mono mode that’s pretty life changing. If you’ve got two kids, the Donkey in Duo mode is arguably the best double stroller on the market. Buy this stroller and your wife will be the happiest baby gear addict on the planet! #lovehasnopricetag #buythedonkey

 

Any of the above would make a great gift for any Baby Gear lover! A glass of wine while opening up a new  Ju-Ju-Be bag or UPPAbaby G-LINK? Yes please!!!! Whatever gift you decide on, make it your own and add a little special touch to it 😉

Wishing you all Happy Holidays spent with the ones you love!

Happy Strolling
