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. From backpacks and school supplies to even trendy jackets and shoes. Here’s Mia’s top 5!

  • I'm that mom that procrastinates sending out holiday cards. Truth be told, one year I actually sent them out NYE. But guess what? This year I'm so on top of it and just mailed these cuties out.
.
.
And I love sending holiday cards but these ornament cards are always a big hit with our friends & family. Love that they can be saved and used year after year. Plus, I can see how much our girls have grown in each ornament. Thanks to @minted for having our back 3 yrs in a row and for their time saving services.😘🙌
.
.
By the way, I'm loving their NEW styling service which is 100% FREE! All you have to do is text them your holiday photo to 415-301-CARD (2273), and a Minted stylist will text you back five holiday card designs, selected especially for and styled with your photo. And get this, they provide FREE custom envelopes with addresses already printed out for you! Go check out all the other holiday saving services and all the coolest card designs created from independent artists around the globe. #ad @minted  #MintedHoliday #holidaycards #ornament #happyholidays

  • FAO Schwarz makes its return to NYC. And guess what??!We were invited to check it all out this past Wednesday! Right before it opened its doors to the public. 😱 You guys, this store is seriously beyond magical. 🌈 And according to the girls, they had the best day ever! 🤩Grocery shopping, getting their hair and nails painted and even got to dance on the biggest walk-on piano keyboard with their daddy. .

Check out all the fun & what the store looks like on our stories. 🤩 A big thank you to @melissaanddougtoys @faoschwarz for hosting us.💕 #faoschwarz #newyorkcity #rockefellercenter #ReturnToWonder
  • #ad It's been about 2 weeks since I started using the new Olay Eyes Brightening Eye Cream and I'm loving how it makes me look refreshed even though clearly I'm not because #thatmomlife. Find out all the other reasons why this brightening eye cream is my new fav on our latest blog post! #heybrighteyes #olay @olay #cvsbeauty #goodmorning
  • #sponsored As a mom, I’m constantly struggling with pulling our girls away from the screens and shifting their focus to pretend play. Surely, I’m not the only one dealing with this right? 🙋‍♀️
.

So, you can just imagine the excitement that went on in my little home office when I received an invitation to be a guest at a roundtable with a select group of influencers — and child development experts in conjunction with Melissa from Melissa & Doug and Parents Magazine in NYC! 🗽More so as we love all the @melissaanddougtoys pretend play toys. Plus, I’m looking forward to hearing more about the movement that is at the heart of the Melissa + Doug brand: the importance of play — in all its forms. And to share with you all the tips and recommendations. .
.
Be sure to peep our stories throughout our stay this week because we’re also going to be attending a preview of the much anticipated NEW @faoschwarz store opening in Rockefeller Plaza!!! And check back for a full recap on the blog when we return to CA. There’s going to be an amazing GIVEAWAY that will surely help jumpstart your holiday shopping, too! #takebackchildhood
  • Can you believe the holidays are just around the corner? Where did the time go? We're definitely excited over here and are getting a head start. Starting with our traditional holiday ‪pj's‬. You all know we love matching so when the girls unboxed these adorable Emoji mommy+me Holiday ‪pj's‬ from @childrensplace they were so excited and couldn't wait to put them on. And truthfully, I couldn't either. Plus, they're ultra soft and cozy too!

This coming Holiday season, we’re all about gifting and doing all things with love!  Paying special attention to all the details as we pick out gifts for the ones we love.

  • The weather is finally starting to cool down in Southern California. Actually, let me rephrase that. The weather is finally cooling down in the evenings and early mornings around here. 🤣
.

So that means it’s all about cozy sweaters & all the hot coffee. ☕️ Trust me when I say this cute color block sweater has been on repeat. Check out our latest post on how I found it. It’s so inexpensive. 😉👏 And do you have anything currently on repeat too? 😁#sweaterweather 📸 @lilyro_
