Product Love: Universal Stroller Organizer

I love my lightweight umbrella stroller, it's easy to fold and it's compact enough to always stay in my car trunk -- it's the perfect size. But as most moms know, we always need to bring all of the baby's essentials plus our phones and wallets with us and most compact strollers don't offer enough storage. Metric USA's Stroller Organizer is the perfect addition to any stroller when extra storage is needed. 

This universally compatible organizer is easy to attach and has two extra long handles with deep hooks and loop fasteners, ensuring easy attach-ability to all stroller models and even shopping carts.

Designed by a mom with busy moms in mind, this organizer features
  • 2 inside zippered pockets for your valuable - keys, phone, glasses
  • 5 external pockets for other essentials - snacks, toys
  • 2 deep drink holders - water bottles, sippy cups, travel coffee mugs
  • A adjustable and detachable 38 inch shoulder strap
  • Made out of breathable, long Lasting washable material

All of our essentials are packed and we are ready to head out for our morning walk around the neighborhood.

This stroller organizer is easy to remove and can be carried as a shoulder bag or it can also be transferred to your car and used as the perfect road trip car organizer.

Re-connect with each other by disconnecting from digital devices

 Your skin is a direct reflection of how you live your life 
Dr. Howard Murad, renowned dermatologist 

These days we’re more digitally connected than ever before, yet less connected to one another in meaningful ways. Digital dependence is a critical element of Cultural Stress – the stress of modern day living – which has profound implications for our skin, health, and happiness. 

Research shows that four days in front of your computer is the same as 20 minutes in the mid-day sun on your skin. A daily dose of blue light -- a wavelength of visible light that more deeply penetrates skin that even UVA -- can accelerate the signs of aging. 

Murad Skincare has launched the #EyesUp campaign to educate people about the danger of digital-only relationships and the power of real-world human connections, in other words: disconnect to connect. Going “EyesUp” doesn’t mean you need to get rid of your phone or computer, but rather make little adjustments to your day to achieve a long-term difference. Whether you take an 15, 30 or a one hour break, making a commitment to put your devices away will not only benefit your real life personal connections but it will improve your overall skin and health. I've pledge to completely disconnect from everything for at least one full hour without any interruptions to my children -- no phone, iPads, computers or tv for myself or my children -- just us enjoying our time together. I invite   you to join me and take the #eyesup pledge to help improve your skin, health and overall wellness.

My new Murad 3 step skincare nighttime regime not only helps me decompress and wind down after a busy day but it helps my skin detox and replenish while I sleep.
  1. Essential-C Toner - This patented formula restores balance and rejuvenates environmentally stressed skin. Coneflower and Licorice Root Extracts tone and brighten skin for a healthy radiance, while natural moisture factors condition and help skin retain healthy hydration levels.
  2. Rapid Age Spot And Pigment Lightening Serum - Fast-acting treatment featuring Hydroquinone fades dark and age spots, and freckles. This skin-lightening serum also evens out skin tone to reveal a clearer, brighter complexion while helping prevent future pigment formation. 
  3. City Skin Overnight Detox Moisturizer - This breakthrough formula, with super-charged antioxidants from Marrubium Plant Stem Cells, neutralizes pollutants and strengthens skin’s barrier while overnight. Next Generation Vitamin C helps brighten and even tone, while nourishing botanicals plump skin to help visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Wake up to radiant, healthy-looking skin. 


Founded in 1989, Murad is a pioneering clinical skincare brand dedicated to encouraging people to live happier, healthier and more fulfilling lives. Backed by 19 unique patents and a 30-year legacy of research and clinical testing, Murad’s unique philosophy, called Connected Beauty, is a whole person approach to health and beauty that inspires people to nourish their skin, awaken their body through physical activity, “eat” their water by consuming water-rich fruits and vegetables, and be kind to their mind.
