The Ultimate Diaper Bag

I’ve had a love-hate relationship with the diaper bags in my life. Some were far too heavy, too big, and some not so stylish nor multifunctional for that matter. For all these reasons, I ended up resorting to using a backpack soon after my oldest became a toddler. It was just super convenient to throw over my shoulders and have my hands free. But the truth is the backpack was not all that stylish nor multifunctional. So while searching for a bag that fit all my mom/wife needs, I came across Lily Jade.

 

Lily Jade has hands down the best multi-use diaper bags in the market.  Their Meggan bag converts to a backpack or messenger carry within seconds. It’s made with premium leather and has a beautiful jade color lining. But the best part of these amazing bags is their interior. The organizer (patent pending) inside can be pulled out and it even includes a changing pad that is not bulky. Finally, a pad that doesn’t take up much room and is washable! 

And let me also mention that the high-end quality of all Lily Jade bags really justifies their prices.  Instead of having to purchase multiple bags for going out with your infants, or as your kids grow, for family travel or simply even to go out on a date with your significant other. This bag works for them all! So that’s savings in itself, right?

I took this lovely bag with me recently on a date with my husband and to a blogger conference. Let me tell you. The compliments just kept coming and they were all amazed when I mentioned that it was also a diaper bag. Now – how’s that for a stylish multifunctional bag? Check out all the colors and gorgeous styles it comes in HERE.

And for all the mamás currently expecting, I have you covered on what to bring with you to the hospital. Duckworth NYC does all the work for you with their core product, the Special Delivery BundleBag ™. “It’s a carefully curated ‘Go Bag’ filled with luxury goodies and other necessities that keep you feeling your absolute best during a hospital stay.”

I wish I knew about Duckworth NYC before I had my girls. Having a bundle of my own super soft pj’s, robe, towels, feminine nursing bra, luxurious toiletries and even a Life Factory water bottle would have made a world of a difference during my hospital stay. And did I mention they even have a bundle for dads too? If you know anyone expecting, be sure to check out their site and browse through their build your own bundle options. Everything available is ultra soft and luxurious.

  • Hair Tip 💇🏻🙌🏼👇
.
.
Use essential oils to create your own hair serum. 😉
.
Nature’s Truth® oils which are 100% Pure Plant Based, Paraben Free and Gluten Free are my go-to. I mix a drop of their sweet almond and coconut oils together and place it midway to the ends of my hair. It gives my hair that extra shine and helps tame those pesky fly aways. .
.
At night, I add their lavender oil to their coconut oil base and use it as a skin serum. The lavender scent is so soothing and such a perfect way to unwind from my busy day with the little ones. Do you use essential oils? #ad @naturestruth #EmbraceEssentialOils #StimulateTheSenses #healthyhairnow

  • Last Tuesday, Lexi and I attended a baby wearing wall crawl event hosted by my sweet mama friend  @xo.rachelpitzel and @lillebaby in Venice Beach. To say these baby carriers are the best is an understatement. .
.
I've had my fair share of baby carriers for both girls. From high end to ultra inexpensive but the @lillebaby carrier I now own is perhaps the most versatile one I've seem. And the best part is that I've had absolutely zero back and shoulder pain and Lexi loves being in it. Oh and let me not forget about their designs. They're super fun and chic. .
.
A big thank you to @xo.rachelpitzel and @lillebaby for having Lexi and I. We had a great time meeting all the awesome moms and sweet babes. Not to mention how effortless it was walking around town with my little one in tow. Be sure to check out all their well-made carriers and all their rad prints and color options. #ad #babywearingmama #babywear 📸 @khauschka
  • Our little nuggets absolutely love milk. But what kid doesn't right? And since every cup contains balanced nutrition and natural protein, I'm all for it. .
.
Interestingly enough, milk is one of the original farm-to-table foods. Typically arriving on grocery shelves in just two days (or 48 hours, on average) from many family-owned and operated dairy farms. And of the 47,000 dairy farms in the United States, 97 percent – small and large – are family owned. .

  • Blog Post Alert!! 🚨🚨🚨 .

A couple years ago, our oldest, Mia, was turning 4 years old. We wanted to do something extra special but weren’t sure exactly what. .
.
So rather than throw her a big birthday party as per usual, we asked her if she wanted to go to Disneyland instead. She quickly replied, “yes but I want to go to the hotel too.” I’m not even kidding. She asked us that. I think it’s due to us taking her to the park since she was two years old and us always passing by the hotel while walking to and from our parking spot. .
.
To be honest, the convenience factor of it all actually sounded quite heavenly.😍
.
.

Well fast forward 2 yrs and we’re still doing the Disneyland Hotel stay and park visit for Mia’s birthday. It’s sorta become a tradition now. And today, we’re sharing our top 8 reasons why we recommend doing so for your kiddos birthdays as well. Link in bio. 😘#disneylandresort #travelingwithkids #dreambigprincess #disneymom #healthyhairnow

See that car seat on top of my kiddos suitcase? Yes, that's a car seat! I kid you not. @mifold is the most advanced, compact, and portable seat ever invented. 10x smaller than a regular booster seat and it’s just as safe. Perfect for carpooling, with grandparents, in taxis, in rental cars and so on.

Back to school, sports activities and working from home/ on the road with little ones has been kicking my 🍑.😆 But even with all the crazy busy schedules, I'm trying my absolute best to stop and really be present. To savor and store in my mind all the funny and sweet moments our kiddos create daily. .

And speaking of moments, any new funny things your kiddos are doing or saying lately? Lexi has become a bilingual taking & dancing machine. And can probably get a Masters in 'tiny' pinching.😆🙈Ouch! 📸: Lilyro_ 😍
