Silikids

silikids

I spent Sunday – Tuesday at the ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas, NV. The show gives you a sneak peek at all of the fun gear/accessories that will be coming out this fall/winter ’15. I’ll be sharing some of my favorites the next few weeks…

You are probably already familiar with the brand Silikids. They are the creators of the Siliskin Glass cup & the Siliskin Top {H2O} (which is one of my faves!) The Siliskin Top {H2O} is a silicone top that stretches over and covers the top of most standard size straight sided glass, plastic or metal cups with a diameter of 2 – 2.5 inches. It is completely dishwasher safe & can be boiled to sterilize.

This year, Silikids took their stretchy silicone top a bit further and have created the Siliskin Straw Top. I’m OBSESSED with this product!

Do your children ever spill drinks? My children spill almost DAILY!… glasses of juice/milk/water are always tipping over! The new Siliskin Top is a silicone top that makes ANY glass spill-proof. It is stretchy, BPA free, & dishwasher safe. Adults can use this product too – great for preventing spills on your laptop/computer keyboard!

The Siliskin Straw Top comes out at the end of this year.

Fancy Mealtime

Hello, Irene from designstiles today. Felix, my son, is almost one. I know! One whole year. Usually my husband and I like to go out to a nice dinner for each of our birthdays and would eventually like to pass the tradition on to Felix but since he’s still too young to make it through several courses, I thought it’d be really cute to dress his mealtime up a bit. I’ve loved this spoon and fork set since before I got pregnant so I think it’ll add to making his day more special. One is a big year afterall.

We usually go plastic for everyday meals but this day deserves something a bit more grown-up. This bowl and cup set is so cute. Comes in a girl version too.

We don’t have this exact high chair but I think it’s what I would’ve gone with had we not gone with this one.

A tux bib, I mean things are getting really fancy.

Alphabet splat mat to catch all the food that’s bound to drop.

Reservations for one please.

Sailed into Soft and Soothing Nursery

Irene from designstiles today sharing some pictures I took of the nursery I discussed in this post.

Nursery was completed just in time for baby to arrive. Any day now.

The look we were going for here was soft and soothing. A cozy, welcoming room without feeling too precious.

The half moon mint wallpaper creates a subtle pattern and was the perfect backdrop for contrasting bursts of orange.

The sailboat mobile echoes the sailboat vintage art.

Below, a couple of the father’s former baby toys add a sentimental touch to the IKEA shelves.

the pouf and throw pillow were both a Target score and are now great companions for the slipcovered glider, which I was told is very comfortable. Ideal for nursing.

I love the way the metal detail on the drum shade adds some visual interest. And the antique brass finish complements the traditional pieces in the room.

orange blanket also once belonged to the father.

A favorite piece, the washed wood dresser gives the room a vintage feel and can continue to be used once it no longer serves as a changing table.

Always happy to the end result of a room that first started out as a vision.

Happy Wednesday!

NatureSmart Gummy Vitamins

NatureSmartGummyVitamins

Disclosure: This post was sponsored by NBTY through their partnership with Circle of Moms by POPSUGAR. While I was compensated by Circle of Moms by POPSUGAR to write a post about NatureSmart Vitamins, all opinions are my own.

As a mom, one of the most important jobs I have is to encourage my children to develop good health habits, from eating their fruits & vegetables to getting plenty exercise, & keeping their brains stimulated.

This summer has been even busier than we imagined. On Monday-Friday, we wake up around 7:00 am. The kids dress themselves while I set out a quick breakfast. They usually eat a whole grain waffle or breakfast bar, a hard boiled egg, and a banana or a bowl of strawberries (which is always a hit!) Then, I quickly pack their lunches which include some of their favorite processed foods, fruit (which they never eat at camp!) & some yogurt.

After a 3:30 pickup from camp we often have activities & sports to attend. By the time we get home from swim lessons, karate, the library, etc the kids are exhausted. Some days they are so tired they can barely eat a full dinner. I often wonder if they’ve consumed enough nutrient-rich foods.

Healthy eating plays an important role in optimal health, but did you know that less than one half of children consume the USDA recommended number of servings in any given food pyramid group, and almost 80% do not eat the recommended number of nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables.

Enter NatureSmart Gummy Vitamins. NatureSmart Vitamins can help “fill in” some of these nutritional gaps. The best thing about NatureSmart Vitamins is that even your pickiest eater will love them, they taste delicious! Plus your children will love Gummy Vitamins in Marvel Shapes and Gummy Vitamins in Disney Shapes.

Supplementing their diets with NatureSmart Vitamins gives me the peace of mind that they are getting essential vitamins and minerals for healthy growth and development!*
