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.

And in case you missed our last weeks post, this @Neutrogena #Rainbath Ocean Mist shower gel smells absolutely divine. It’s a fresh ocean scent all bottled up. Love the way it feels on my skin and it doesn't leave a heavy residue. And if you're a Costco member, you can get this large #NeutrogenaRainbath 40oz bottle @Costco in stores and online at http://bit.ly/NeutrogenaRainbath #ad #Neutrogena
  • I find that the best way to get my kiddos to eat more fruits and vegetables is with color and a little imagination. 🍎🍐🍇🥦
.
.
And if you've got OCD like me, simply do all the cutting and prepping before hand so there's less of a mess. Place different fruits and vegetables into individual bowls (or a muffin mold) and let them pick and choose what they want to put onto their plate to create something fun. My 6-yr-old made this turkey. She definitely ate more while creating it. But it got the job done, and a fun activity for her to do.
.

Tune in tomorrow on @socalmoms as we’re taking over their IG and sharing another Turkey idea to make with the kiddos on Thursday. 🤗🦃

  • Having a spa day at home with this little love of mine before we get ready for dinner and bed time. Spa as in her putting on cucumber slices on her eyes and pretending to meditate while I also place cucumber slices but also massage in this amazing @Exuviance Overnight Recovery Masque. Because I'm almost 40 (eek!) and need all the help I can get from all the Southern California beach sun exposure.
.

I absolutely love the way this masque smells! So fresh and it has a light water gel texture to it. But the best part is the convenience factor for us busy moms. I just apply it right after I wash my face and sleep with it overnight. I wash it off in the morning and it leaves my skin feeling hydrated, softer and brighter. You can find this amazing @Exuviance Overnight Recovery Masque @UltaBeauty I left you the direct link to purchase on their site via link in my bio.🤗 #IworkwithExuviance #Exuviance

This Neutrogena #Rainbath Ocean Mist shower gel smells divine and reminds me of my 20s when I lived in a tiny cottage in Manhattan Beach, CA. It's a fresh ocean scent all bottled up. Love the way it feels on my skin and it doesn't leave a heavy residue. And if you're a Costco member, you can get this large #NeutrogenaRainbath 40oz bottle @Costco in stores and online at http://bit.ly/NeutrogenaRainbath (link in my bio) #Neutrogena #ad @Neutrogena #Costco
  • #ad Stop your scroll! This one is for all my #mamarazzi friends that also take tons of photos of their kiddos.📸👶🏻🤣

What if I told you that you can now charge your phone AND save your camera phone photos at the same exact time?? This @SanDisk iXpand Base device charged my phone and backed up over 2,000 pictures and videos instantly!! .
.
Unlike the cloud, there are NO recurring monthly fees and you can have the peace of mind knowing that your photos are right by your bedside. But the best part of it all is that it's super fast! Much faster than backing up to a cloud over Wi-Fi. .
The SanDisk iXpand Base is now available at Amazon and perfect to add to your holiday wish list. Just sayin' 😉  #iXpandBase #BackupAndCharge
  • When is it ok to talk about how amazing your little nuggets are without sounding like a bragging mom? Asking for a friend.🤣

The truth is, this kid, although little compared to most of her classmates and teammates has such a huge personality, brains and never ending energy. .
.
She’s excelling in school by leaps and bounds. Experienced her 1st soccer championship game at age 6 and is getting a Sr yellow belt.  But don’t get me wrong, she has melt downs, she’s scared to be alone and puts up a good fight with clothes and shoes. Apparently everything is “itchy ivy.” Hence why these @skechers are on repeat even w/ dresses. Two Thumps up for being comfy and making her “faster”. 😆👟🏃‍♀️#ad @skechers #kidsstyle #disneymom

Oh @joannagaines, just take all my money, k? Anyone else stock up on some Hearth & Hand at home when it came out last week? Absolutely had to buy this gorgeous table I saw displayed in one of their online @Target ads the second Hearth & Hand went live. Along with all these goodies. Our home entrance definitely needed a little TLC and I'm loving this mix of all my favorite things. It now feels cozy and welcoming. Are you a #joannagaines fan too? 😊🌿 #HearthandHand #fixerupper #bossmom #motheroverloadhome
