Meet Your New Go-To Gift: Pictli

see more by

Disclosure: Free photo and frame sent to me for review. I only write about things I love. And I love Pictli.


Recently I was introduced to Pictli, an online photo framing gift company, where you can pick a favorite photo, add it to one of their beautiful frames, and then have it sent with a personal note directly to your recipient.

Awesomeness.  If you want to try it out for yourself (you do) use Pictli coupon code JS1506 and get 20% off now through the end of June.

With Father’s Day coming up, it was the perfect opportunity to frame a photo to give to my husband for his office.


Here’s how it works.

First you upload your photo which you can do easily from Facebook, Instagram or your drag and drop a photo from your computer.  Then you preview your photo in the frame of your choice.  I love this because you can see what your photo would actually look like in the frame.

I chose this recent picture of my husband with our girls before the Father/Daughter Dance at our school. It makes my heart swoon.


Then you write your personalized note to the recipient, enter your info and viola! Done! You can have it shipped to you OR directly to recipient! Just think how much the grandparents would love to receive this in the mail!

When my Pictli gift arrived, it was in a cute box, and inside was wrapped darling, with the personalized note attached.

Pictli Gift

He’s going to love it.

What Do Teachers Really Want?

I bow down to teachers. I don’t know how they do it. To me, it’s one of the most important jobs one can have. And it must also be one of the hardest.

We loved Emma’s kindergarten teachers this year and I want to get them something special for their end of the year gift. Something they would really love and appreciate.

I know I must have some teachers (current or former) reading this, please tell me, what do teachers really want?? 

Please share your most thoughtful and appreciated parent gifts.  Moms everywhere will be thanking you for taking the mystery out of the “what to get” question, and hopefully our teachers will end up with a gift they really love!

Gift Idea: Thomas & Friends Sodor Search and Rescue

see more by

This is a great gift idea for any of you looking for a last minute gift this week! The Thomas & Friends Sodor Search and Rescue play set has provided hours and hours of fun in our house!

I have two girls, and it is not intentional, but we honestly do not have many traditional “boy” toys like trucks, cars or trains.

So when the folks at Mega Bloks contacted me about doing a review of one of their products, the Thomas and Friends Sodor Search and Rescue, I thought, “it’s about time we have a toy like this for the girls to enjoy!”

It is a GREAT toy, and reasonably priced at $29.99. This set would make for a great gift idea for any little one (boy OR girl) 3 and older on your list.

It comes in a handy carry case which doubles as a building platform.  I love a toy that has dual purpose, and it is great to have an easy place to store the little parts.

The set includes different accessories like opening doors, a track switch and a working crane as well as Thomas and Harold buildable characters.

It took some time, but both my girls figured out how to put it together.  I think my husband also secretly loves assembling it too.

Join the Mega Bloks Family Club to stay up to date on the latest and greatest toys for all ages.  And right now, they have a Holiday Toy Giveaway going on where you can enter to win a new toy daily! Click here for more info.

[Disclosure: I received a complimentary Thomas and Friends Sodor and Rescue play set to facilitate this review. Thank you!]

Since it ’tis the season of giving, I wanted to put together a green holiday gift guide for all those eco mamas out there!

So I asked Giselle Baturay, owner of Granola Babies and an expert in all things eco-friendly for parents and babies, to give me her top holiday gift picks. Here they are! 

The Ergo Baby Carrier is a favorite for dads since it’s easy to put on, has a sporty look and is very comfortable to use with babies and toddlers.

The Keptin Jr series of teething toys are made of organic cotton so you can feel good knowing that your baby is mouthing only natural toys.

Tea Collection Fashions + Giveaway

see more by

I first was introduced to Tea Collection clothing a couple years ago when my girlfriend gave us a darling little wrap dress that was a hand-me-down from her daughter.

It quickly became one of our staple pieces and my daughter wore it ALL of the time. I was very impressed with how well it held up wear after wear which is definitely the sign of a quality clothing company. You know you have a high-quality piece when a hand-me-down still looks great after going through two kids!

So recently when a representative contacted me from Tea Collection about a review and giveaway I very enthusiastically accepted because:

#1. I already know and LOVE this brand
#2. I am thrilled to get to offer one of my readers a $100 gift certificate to shop!
