I’ve been getting a lot of questions on where I like to shop for my little kiddos. So I wanted to share one site that is always a winner for me. DLK also know as Design Life Kids. They have the best carefully curated collection of children’s fashion, accessories, toys and decor for the modern aesthetic loving family. Carrying brands like Mainio, Nor Folk, Tiny Cottons, Dumye, Mint Rhapsody and many more urban labels. Whether you are shopping for yourself or looking for a gift, you can always count on them for unique items leaving your wallet empty but your heart content. Here are my current picks from their site.
I am super excited to introduce you to Little Foodie, a cookbook for your babies and toddlers by my friend Michele Olivier. I met Michele while working at Nordstrom and back then we were both trying to climb our way up the corporate ladder. Just two overly ambitious woman trying to make something of our lives not knowing what really was in store for our futures.
Now 10+ years later we still remain friends but we have long tossed that previous goal and took on brand new journeys. What changed you asked? Kids! We now share two things in common. We are both control freaks and big time foodies. I’ll admit before having kids, I ate like crap but after having kids, you really start to think about food in a different way. When I had Taye I tried my hand at making fresh foods but never really quite succeeded. Julia Child and Michele would have been ashamed of me. I made mediocre purees that were thankfully edible. This time around with Odin (my second), I’m so glad I have her book to guide me through creating fresh foods full of flavor! God gave me a second chance at being a supermom. Ha.
