Kids Holiday Fashion Tips

This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of OshKosh B’gosh; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

 

The holiday season is busy for our family, from hosting our own gatherings to attending get togethers with friends and even school parties and Christmas programs. As modern traditional parents, we want our kids to look festive but still be comfortable and age-appropriate.

We love the kids fashion that OshKosh B’gosh offers this time of year. Whether you have a child who likes fancy dresses or a child who prefers a nice sweater and jeans, OshKosh really does cater to a variety of styles.

With so many events to attend it gets pricey paying for several new outfits, but instead of buying one outfit for each event we love to buy separates that you can mix and match and Osh Kosh B’gosh kids has a great selection of coordinating pieces.

While shopping we saw adorable ponchos and super frilly dresses. Miss C ended up choosing some adorable print leggings and a romantic flowy top. She also picked out a glittery navy skirt to mix and match.

Another great way to save on the holiday clothing for your children is with an amazing Osh Kosh B’gosh coupon!!

Kids Marvel Dreams Come True – Holiday Gift Idea

It’s no secret that my girls LOVE superheros thanks to their dad and uncle. While they like DC comics they will tell you they like DC but they love Marvel. When I received these Marvel themed gift products I had a feeling the girls would be excited, but I didn’t realize how excited they would be.

Miss A being the artist that she is loves the Marvel – The Amazing 1000 Dot-to-Dot Book, and by love I mean I have to practically pull her away from the book to eat dinner, do chores, {fill in with anything other than dot-to-dot}. I don’t blame her though this book is definitely something I have not seen on shelves, is very calming {which I love}, and isn’t something she’s going to finish in a day and be done with, so the value is pretty high as well.

 

Lil C as you may know is my little fashionista {since she was 3}, and has been working on hand and machine sewing with some great teachers. When she opened her eyes and saw the Marvel Universe Crochet Kit she was so excited to get into the box and get started. She’s waited patiently so I could take pictures and I’ll have to help her a little because she’s never crocheted before, but I’m excited to help her out. This kit comes with the materials to make two superheros, Spiderman and Captain America. There are also instructions to make 12 Marvel Super Heroes. The instruction booklet has lots of colorful pictures and easy step-by-step instructions. We can’t wait to create our first super hero!

I’ll be sure to share our work on my Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat so be sure to follow!

If you want to grab these up for your kiddos {or yourself, I won’t tell}, you can get yours through my Amazon affiliate links*.

 I know these are presents that will make your Marvel loving child happy!!!

New LeapFrog Product – Learn to Write with Mr. Pencil™ Stylus & Writing App

This post brought to you by MomSelect and LeapFrog.

Lately Lil’ C who is officially 3 and 1/2 {don’t forget the half}, has been VERY interested in writing her letters, and learning how to spell everything on the planet. She’s even been starting to create her own words and asking me, “Mommy, what does EFLG spell?” So I’m super excited that LeapFrog has come up with the Learn to Write with Mr. Pencil™ Stylus & Writing App.

Lil’ C loves playing on my iPad whenever she can get her hands on it, 90% of the apps are kids apps and 80% of the games on it have some capacity of educational value, but the more learning apps I can add or use to replace others, the better.

The girls loved “stepping into the world of Mr. Pencil and the citizens of Doodleberg”, and I like that she’s able to practice her writing and drawing skills. The Learn to Write with Mr. Pencil™ app come with a really cool, Mr. Pencil stylus that’s kid-friendly and is designed to be gentle on your iPad. {Double duty!}

Lil’ C loves practicing her letters, and unlocking shops and venues in Doodleberg and how much interaction the app allows. Even though Miss A {6} has been writing letters for years, the app had some fun activities that she enjoyed as well.

Holiday Decorations for the Home with Christmas Forest

This post is in partnership with Christmas Forest.

 

Christmas Forest Products

Now that it’s officially November I’m starting to launch into my Christmas holiday posts because I know some of you have already been shopping and looking online for gifts as well as great holiday decorations to make your home even more inviting this holiday season.

Since I live in the suburbs of Charlotte, the houses in my neighborhood all start to look the same after a while, but when Christmas draws near, I love looking at the outside the houses, especially those that have classy Christmas lawn decorations and beautiful Christmas wreaths.

As I search through my Pinterest account I see so many great, unique creations for Christmas wreaths, but for some reason my eyes are always attracted to the natural, pine Christmas wreaths. Maybe it’s because I’m very allergic to pine and know that plastic just isn’t the same look, {but I try not to be too envious}.

As a start to my holiday posts and shopping recommendations, I’d love to tell you a little more about Christmas Forest.

christmas forest

Christmas Forest, nestled in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains of Washington state, has been producing fresh, beautiful Christmas wreaths since 1976. While they have been a local brand for quite some time, they currently serve customers worldwide.

Wreaths range in price from $38 to $52 and last for approximately 3 weeks outdoors but can last longer in cooler/damper climates. Each wreath is carefully handcrafted and shipped to your door {as long as you live in the continental US} at no additional cost, and rumor has it the customer service is outstanding as well.

Here are a few of my favorite wreaths (and other products from Christmas Forest):

For some reason, I adore blue and silver together. I just feel like it’s different than the red {which I like 2nd best}, not as traditional, but still very beautiful. This Jazz-a-Tazz wreath can be purchased for $44.oo.

The middle, Christmas Cross Wreath is an obvious choice for one of my top picks because of my family’s faith. I love that they offer this option, a great way to celebrate the season and share warmth with your neighbors. I also love that it’s simple and not pretentious. The Christmas Cross wreath is also priced at $44.00.

Last but not least, I know it’s not a wreath officially, but I just can’t help falling in love with this Holiday Swag, no not because it’s called “swag”, although that in it’s own rite is pretty awesome. I can just see it making a beautiful addition to any Christmas decor whether it’s outside your home or inside. If I could turn off my allergies these would be adorning our mantle, our windows, and I may throw a couple on the kids as well! Seriously though, if you’re looking for a little holiday spirit to compliment your current decor, this 25″ Holiday Swag is great and available for $37.

What are your favorites?? 

If you are interested in purchasing products for yourself or as a gift from Christmas Forest I encourage you to head to their website: www.ChristmasForest.com, you can also follow them on Facebook for updates on products and holiday countdowns.

 

Thank you Christmas Forest for sponsoring this post, unfortunately I was not able to review products due to pine allergies, but I hope this post has been informative and helpful. All opinions expressed in the above post are my own, yours may vary.
