Product Love: Personalized Necklaces

I recently had the pleasure of working with artist Emily Hill on two very special handmade necklaces. Emily creates one of a kind beautiful jewelry available in her Etsy shops - Emmy Shoppe & The Trendy Trinket

Emily began making pendants in 2006 and hasn't stopped since. She works full time at a high-end artistic glass company by day, and as an Etsian at night. Emily works with several different materials including hand crafted fabric, floral, metal, pearl and reclaimed pieces.


Using Dylan's footprints taken at the hospital and Jack's index finger fingerprint, Emily created two unique pieces of jewelry that arrived just in time for Mother's Day.



Make sure you stop by Emily's Etsy stops and take a look at all the personalized items she has available, she will work with you to create the perfect piece just for you!

With summer quickly approaching and several road trips - with hotel stays - ahead,  I've been searching for safe online sites to keep Jack entertained while we travel.

The user friendly site allows you to easily find the game that best fits your child. From a desktop or laptop, simply select their favorite character, movie, interest or browse their highest rated/most popular games from the top category drop down menu. Each game also comes with a brief description so you can make sure the content and level are appropriate for your little ones.


It's hard to keep children entertained while traveling, finding a safe, kid friendly site will be a tremendous help this summer! Poki can be easily accessed on your desktop, laptop, tablet or phone.

Check It Out: Zarbee's Naturals Baby Vitamins and Supplements

Dealing with a sick baby is brand new territory to me. The first time I took Jack to the doctor for a sick visit was 2 weeks before he turned 4. Dylan on the other hand, has already had 2 ear infections and a sinus infection. Every time he's prescribed Amoxicillin, my poor baby gets a horrible diaper rash thanks to all those extra poopy diapers. Probiotics drops have been such an enormous help during those times. 

I recently found out that mom favorite brand Zarbee’s, has introduced natural vitamins and supplements for infants and toddlers - including a probiotic supplement. Unlike most baby vitamins, these products contain no gluten or dyes and no artificial flavors or sweeteners. Zarbee’s new baby line feature handpicked natural ingredients that provide a full range of wellness solutions for babies.


Baby Probiotic Supplement - Zarbee's Baby Probiotic supplement promotes and maintains intestinal health by restoring the natural balance in the baby's digestive tract.* The proprietary 3Biotic® formula contains a prebiotic, probiotic, and natural postbiotic to increase delivery of this beneficial bacteria to the child's digestive system.



Baby Vitamin D Supplement - This supplement delivers vitamin D in a natural coconut oil to help absorb calcium for strong bones and teeth. * The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends supplementing your breastfed infant with 400 IUs of vitamin D daily since an adequate amount of vitamin D is not transferred through breast milk.

Their entire line including Baby Omega 3 and Baby Multi Vitamin with Iron Supplement is available exclusively at Target stores nationwide.
