Hello!  So happy to have one of my favorite mamas on the blog today with our etsy round up for February!

Here are our favorite etsy finds of the moment. Shop on mamas!

Etsy Round Up February

1. ivory linen baby baptism or blessing dress by chasing mini: with a little girl on the way i can start thinking about really special baby clothes again and this dress is at the top of my list for her blessing.

2. kimonos for little girls by Busy Spinning Thread: i mean if this darling pic doesn’t just kill you the kimonos will.

3.hand carved cow skull by AureusArts: i love the skull trend just as much as the next girl, but this hand carved skull is beautiful to the next level. makes you want to run in the fields with a flower crown on my head.

4. this abstract art work by a handcrafted home: soothing and edgy and happy all at once.

5. Double crest wedding ring by artemer : i am not getting remarried, but if i was, this ring would be on my list.

Ali’s Picks:

LITTLE PRETTIES -There is something about layering bracelets that takes me back to 2nd grade. I had so many friendship bracelets on my wrists I’m sure my mother thought she would have to call the fire department to get them off! These petite baubles are just the right accessory to throw your little ones cuteness factor over the edge. Also, they have a clasp so you can easily remove them without calling 911. Sizes range from infant to adult size.

FAIRYFOLK -My obsession with this company is major. Their large cloud mobile makes me want to have 900 babies, put them in white whimsical clothes and have them floating about all of their beds. It’s just so yummy.

RACHELJOK- Our love of weaving continues with Rachel. I love her because she is constantly restocking her shop with new and innovative weaves. Really, something for everyone.

ADATINE -If you’re like me you can’t look at another stuffed animal. All I think when I look at them are dust and  ALLERGIES. However, not Adatine. This shop makes me so happy. A modern take on a classical must have for kids.

ANCHOREDEEP -Living for these rompers and trying to muster up enough courage to get one made in an adult size! Ya heard!?

fridays i can’t stop… dreaming of being an indoor green thumb

i have a black thumb. a cold dark black thumb. the only plant safe from my deadly grip is the resilient mini cactus. i have those guys down to a science. however, they are not the most kid friendly and now i can’t stop dreaming of big leafy plants in my house because a big prickly cactus just won’t cut it… or it will, quite literally.

i once heard the key to making a house feel alive is live plants. good for the air. good for the soul.

here is a round up of my indoor plant inspiration…

my hairdresser sent me a similar picture to this hair style and insisted i do a “how to” on this look for valentines day. it might be a little dippy, but if you can’ t be dippy on Vday when can you be dippy?

1. we started by spritzing ruby’s hair with a styling spray and some texturizing spay to help hold the curl and make it slightly more boho. we used this surf spray from target.

2 & 3. we curled all of ruby’s hair with a curling iron, curling away from her face and leaving about 2 inches of the ends straight.

4 & 5.  next, make two small ponytails and secure with clear elastics. the trick to this is to get the ponytails close together. we tried this several times until we got the distance just right, i say about two inches apart should do the trick.

6. now, twist each bunch of hair until it curls up and outward, forming half a heart.

7. secure hair with three bobby pins. one right where the twist connects with the elastic. one at the arch of the heart. connect the two half hearts with an elastic and bobby pin where it forms a cute full heart. we considered adding a cute small bow here as well. in full disclosure we only had a pink clear elastic so i photoshopped it out but use a clear one and secure with a bobby pin and it will look great:)

5. spray with lots of hairspray.  we like the look of texture and beachiness to the hearts so we poked and fluffled the heart to create more texture and interest.

and just because…

effortless maternity style

effortless maternity style. if you are pregs, you want effortless, comfortable and stylish. i like to keep my pieces clean and versatile because i don’t want to invest in a ton of styles. i like being able to mix all my outfits around and wear tried and true comfy pieces. HOWEVER, this is the time i will invest in jackets, hats, shoes or handbags that i will wear loooong after baby arrives and they always fit.

SOOO… is this the time to announce I AM PREGNANT?? well I am. I am due in June. Look for a post this next week giving you all the details!

felt hat: looking for a departure from the boho shapes you already have? love this fresh round update. and you have to have hats to throw on when pregnant for those days when you are just not feeling up to doing your hair, or anything else…am i right?

perfectly worn denim jacket : i have been looking and looking for a good denim jacket. actually, i have been looking for a vintage, sherpa lined levi jacket that my brother gave me in 7th grade but have not found it all winter ( insert frowny face). this denim is soft and comfy, already worn in and perfect to take me into the fall. white collar shirt / black ripped jeans

worn black leather booties: comfy, no laces and easy to get on while stretching over that baby bump.

lace maternity shirtdress / leather biker jacket : get the leather jacket you have been drooling over now.  feel stylish all 9 months and wear it after baby arrives. because really, has anyone ever regretted buying a black leather jacket? no. (britt, looking at you;)

brown clogs: clogs are my saving grace during pregnancy. cute, stylish and high enough to get you out of the frumpy rut while being easy to walk in. this pair is rocking my world.

fridays i can’t stop…skimming

do you love to have the scoop on everything from Suge Night’s arrest to ISIS? Me too. My news obsession has led me to programming four different Sirus radio news outlets in my car from finance to NPR. i scan each station, each day, to get the scoop on what is going on in the world. it takes dedication.

Now The Skimm does all the “skimming” for me. As their logo suggests, “We Read. You Skimm.” Their daily e-newsletter does just that. They give you the quick down and dirty scoop on everything so you are as comfortable talking to your overly aggressive uncle about the Middle East as you are to your to your girlfriends about the latest Hollywood break up.   Now you are in the know. Everyday.
