Girls Back-to-School Must-Haves

Sponsored by the Disney Store. All opinions expressed within are entirely TMOs.

I’m still in denial that our oldest is turning six in a few days and that she will no longer be in Kindergarten. I think it’s due to the fact that I have very fond memories from when I was a child and in that grade level.

And if anyone knows if there’s a way I can just keep my baby girl (yes, still call her that) this little forever, please share. Because this past year was seriously full of many firsts. I know what you’re thinking. Wait, isn’t the infant stage the one with the most firsts? Well, let me tell you. Being 5 is up there too. Having a 5-year-old certainly rocked my world.

It was her first year in an elementary school, first time reading an entire easy reader book on her own, first note from The Tooth Fairy (which happens to be off on Mondays. More on this later) to her first time tying her own shoe laces. But watching her become more and more independent at this age has made me realize one thing. It doesn’t seem to get easier for me to let go. And I have a feeling I’ll be a mess still when she goes to middle school and high school and oh my word college. Ok, not going there right now. Instead, I’ll focus on the present and the fact that she’s officially a 1st grader. Please pass the box of tissue this way.And if you’ve also been too busy having fun this summer and haven’t had the chance or made time to go back-to-school shopping with your little nugget, no worries. We have an awesome one-stop-shop for you. The Disney Store! Yes, you read that correctly. The Disney Store has the cutest back-to-school finds all at affordable prices.

[#AD] Yes to pool parties, ice cream dates and the prettiest summer bouquets from @Teleflora 💐 I bet you didn’t know Teleflora's network of professional florists can create artistic arrangements like this one? I sure didn’t! This one reminds me of being on vacation in Hawaii. 🏝Swipe to see a close up & check out our stories to use our discount code on any gorgeous summer bouquet. 🤗👌
  • I thought it would be cute to get matching sunglasses & outfits to take a fun pic at this wall. I’ll blame the hot weather for this one. 😅 .
BUT, the truth is aren’t all the pics of our kids the best regardless if they’re looking at the camera, smiling or just being themselves? These are the real deal. Lexi running around not wanting to wear her sunglasses nor stand still. Mia not wanting to wear a dress & wanting to just climb things or take her own selfies with her iPod (aka phone). 🤣 Duh all kid things. Just a daily reminder to myself that I need to #letthembekids 🙈 .

  • Last Wednesday, I was invited to celebrate the launch of the new streamlined  @HonestBeauty products 
hosted by @jessicaalba at the Honest Headquarters. The event was nothing short of spectacular filled with delicious food, drinks and yummiest gluten-free vegan desserts from @yvonnesvegankitchen And, yes, Jessica Alba really is just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. 😍 I asked her how she was able to balance family and business and guess what she said? She’s got the best help, her sis-in-law. 😘  She also mentioned that she created every single product for herself. How awesome is that? .
.
I was excited to try on some of the gorgeous  colors and new skin care products but most importantly to learn how gentle they are, how easy they are to put on & that they’re free of harmful additives. Find them all today @honest_beauty @Target @ultabeauty And check out my celebrity snap in my stories. ☺️ #CleanBeautyThatWorks #honestbeauty 📸 @lin_marty 💕

Fancy Nancy, is a new animated family comedy series centered on 6-year-old Nancy, who likes being fancy in everything from her advanced vocabulary to her creative attire. It’s geared towards kids age 2-7 and each episode contains funny heartfelt stories that highlight self-expression, being unique and family love.

And speaking of family love, it melts my heart to see our oldest reading Fancy Nancy books 📚 to her little sis. So you can just imagine the reaction these two had when they found out they were invited to a Fancy Nancy tea party inside Walt Disney Studios. And even got to see the first episode! 😱Beyond ecstatic and grateful. Merci it was all Magnifique! Can’t wait for you all to see it. Catch the premier tomorrow at 11a on Disney Junior. And stick around to see our stories of the event throughout the day. 💕#DisneyFancyNancy #DisneyJunior

And more so with kids. 😆 Amiright? Lately we’ve been going on day dates. And although extremely grateful for it, I’m now having #momguilt because our oldest is questioning why she can’t come with us and that we don’t play with her like we use to. 😩 The struggle of finding balance is real. How do you find balance? I feel like I’m being pulled different directions and I know I’m not alone on this. #momlifeyo #teammarriage 📸💕 @lilyro_

I try my best to make sure I’m #raisinggoodhumans but also independent & brave ones. Zip lining, archery, rock climbing, mining, cycling and hanging out with Santa🎅🏼& Mrs Claus 🤶🏻. Just some of the things our 6-year-old experienced yesterday. And although she’s scared of heights, she rock climbed on an outdoor 30-foot wall! Cried a little & attempted to go higher every time. She got more than half way up which is huge in her eyes. On the way out she said it was actually fun and wants to go on again to go higher. Yes my love! You are amazing. 🙌🏼 .
