Think-ets: A Mommy Must Have Purse Accessory

A new accessory that I don't leave home without are "Think-ets." This little pouch of goodies has become a permanent resident of my purse, and trust me when I say you really need your own pouch of Think-ets for your handbag too. Think-ets are a pocket size pouch of tiny random objects that allow children to practice endless creativity.

Our pouch features items, like a pig, an apple, a mini plate, a book, some silverware, tiny tools and more. Depending on the age of the children, there are multiple games you can play. My boys, ages 4 & 7, get a kick out of storytelling. I give them 3-4 items and they have to make up a story about them. Or, I'll have them close their eyes, and pick 3-4 items and they have to do a story that way. It's absolutely hilarious and they love when it's my turn too. We also play an ABC Order game, where we line up the objects in alphabetical order (it's the teacher in me). Noatter what the game, with Think-ets, time passes quickly and boredom ceases to exist.

The official age of the game is 8+, but even my 4 year old joins in on the fun. Visit the Think-ets site today and pick up some pouches of your own. I recommend multiple sets and stash them everywhere. They are great for restaurants, doctor appointments, travel, and pretty much any place you have some down time to fill. OH, another thought! I know it's a bit early, but you might want to give Santa a jingle and let him know that Think-ets would make great stocking stuffers!

Paisley Dreams: Luxurious Products for Stylish Babes

Looking for a luxurious gift for that special baby in or about to be in your life? I was introduced to Paisley Dreams at the Baby Celebration event in Los Angeles and immediately fell in love with their super soft, gorgeous, but most importantly functional products. Paisley Dreams founder and super swanky mom, Ashley Massi, has gathered beautiful fabrics and turned them into the 3 B's: Bibs, Burpees, & Blankets. What I love about Paisley Dreams, is not only the superior quality of their products, but also the variety of fabrics Ashely uses to create them. Here's why: My sister (who is due today, but the bun is still in the oven), is having a "delivery surprise." She's driving me nuts! It's hard to find really nice unisex prints, but Paisley Dreams solves that problem. I adore the Go Green (big hit at the shower) and the Juicy patterns. I also love that you can purchase matching sets of everything.

If you are looking for a special shower gift, you must visit Paisley Dreams. The blankets are so yummy soft, and at 30 x 30 inches, they are generously sized. Sure to become a favorite, the burpees and bibs are great too. Wanna go all out? Grab a gift basket! Trust me, if you bring a gift from Paisley Dreams to your next shower, the oooohs and ahhhhs, will be nonstop.

Visit Paisley Dreams today and spoil a little loved one in your life.

Supergoop: Safe Summer Time Fun!

This summer, we are revisiting an all time favorite product! Supergoop is the ultimate in daily sun protection. This wonderful sun block is organic, SPF 30, and perfect for sensitive skin. You may be thinking, "Why Supergoop? There are so many sunblocks on the market." Well, let me tell you why.... Unfortunately, skin cancer runs in my family. When I was little, sunblocks were not as good, nor did parents put it on children daily. When I was 16, I got my first skin cancer, and have had several since then. I started using DAILY sun protection when I was a teenager, but much of the damage had already been done. I still use daily protection and have been smothering my boys with it ever since it was safe to use on their sensitive skin. Supergoop, is the perfect sunblock, no burning, no itching, it rubs in easliy, is waterproof, and most improtantly it does a fabulous job of keeping my whole family protected.

For more info, visit the Supergoop site today. I am in love with their Super Pump and wall mount. We have one in our back yard. It's handy and a great reminder to lube up before hitting the giant inflatable waterslide that has become a fixture in our backyard this summer! Also, check out the Super Summer Set. It's a great variety for travel. Ours will be accompanying us on our Disney Cruise next week!
