I just checked back in at Giggle.com– one of my favorite sources for cool children’s gear and gadgets. They have a bunch of items that are exclusive to the site, which means you won’t be seeing everyone with the same things! Here are my two favorites: the organic jungle mat- $80, and the organic cotton bowling buddies set- $45.

I have been on Oahu for not even 1 full day and I am already in Aloha mode. It is always so strange to come back to a place you used to live and see all the changes that have been made. But, many old staples remain.

I stopped by Teddy’s, my favorite burger joint, to grab lunch. Inside, I noticed a mom with three children- none of which were wearing shoes. Okay, I know this is Hawaii, but I still felt a tinge of grody- ness. The thought of tiny barefoot feet on a fast food joint’s floor- ugh! This made me think of how handy a few pairs of Bical shoes would be- they can be worn from the street to the shore’s edge…and who doesn’t love the cutesy, fun prints?

Entertaining: Skirts

I am currently in an L.A. state of mind- most likely because that is where I have been waiting for the past couple of hours for my connecting flight to Oahu. I figured, why not do a post on one of my favorite L.A. based companies, Entertaining Elephants.

These are my absolute favorite fairy skirts, $58 each

Inspiration Travel

It’s official, I have been bitten by the travel bug! If money weren’t an issue, I would be non- stop discovering this world and all it has to offer. Luckily, being freelance allows for some flexibility in that area. So,¬† tomorrow morning I am off to Hawaii for a month! I will be on Oahu for a week, and Maui for three! One of my besties, Tammie, is currently pregnant and due in early February. I am going to help her out with anything she may need, and do some discovering of my own on the side. I will still be posting regularly, so make sure you keep checking back!

Hope for Haiti

The current situation in Haiti right now is downright devastating. I am asking you to please try and do as much as you possibly can- whether this mean donating to the numerous organizations (Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders, Oxfam America to name a few), purchasing products from companies that donate proceeds (like this adorable  onesie below from Etsy, $12), or even something as simple as praying- it can all do wonders.

Big Wheels

Happy Friday! Hope everyone has some exciting weekend plans.

Me? I am moving out of my apartment in Brooklyn, and I have tons of stuff to move- I could really use one of these pull carts from Kaiku, $165. Where ever your weekend plans take you, I hope it involves some fun…

From India, With Love

I came across Catherine Fitzsimmons’ company, Rikshaw Design, and loved the beautiful, block print bedding designs. All of the patterns exude feelings of serenity that are sure to bring cheer to any baby’s room. You can also mix and match prints which is always appreciated.
