Our Favorite Things – June 2019

by | Jun 12, 2019 | Products and Services


As moms, we are forever trying out new products to find what fits best for our lifestyles.  With the warmer weather finally here, we thought it would be fun to feature some of our favorite summer products for summer, so without further ado, here they are! 


If you have a product or service you’d like us to include in these posts, get in touch via Instagram or Facebook & drop a comment!

Stearns Puddle Jumper

We swim a LOT in the summer months, both at the pool and in the lake.  My children are large – larger than most – and they outgrew the infant float seats quickly.  I bought a baby life vest, thinking that was the next best thing, but realized pretty quickly that it tended to dump him directly onto his face in the water.  Not ideal!  Then we joined Lifetime and saw all the kids with these nifty water wings that were designed to allow a kid to actually swim.  We converted and we haven’t looked back!  I guarantee you won’t either.  There’s such a variety of styles and colors that your kids will love them, too!

Bling2O Goggles for Kids

Keeping with our summer fun things, check out these super cute goggles! Bling 20 makes goggles that kids will love (they also make boys ones), but please be aware that we make no guarantees that they’ll only wear them in the water!

Public Goods Sunscreen

Have you heard of Public Goods?  For $59 per year, you get access to tons of holistic products and foods that are safe for the whole family.  And they’re CHEAP. Case and point, their mineral sunscreen (which is huge, scent-free, baby and kid safe, and effective) is only $10.  They also have great suflate-free shampoo and conditioner, quality body lotion, excellent toothpaste … I could go on and on.  Totally worth it, mamas.  Try it out – if nothing else, stock up on sunscreen with the 30-day free trial.  You won’t regret it.

Mac & Mia

Ever get tired of picking out your kid’s clothes?  Or, in my case, lack the time to find really adorable and on-trend outfits for boys?  Enter Mac & Mia!  Take a quick style survey and the Mac & Mia stylist will choose items that fit your profile for a $20 styling fee.  Shipping is free both ways, you have five days to decide what you want, and you only pay for the clothing you keep.  Easy peasy – give it a try!


Every summer has rainy days, and every rainy day with kids deserves a good game.  This is one of our favorites.  We can play it with both our two and four year old children again and again and it still brings laughter even after we’ve been playing for a while.  If you don’t have this game, check it out.  It’s a fun one that you’ll love playing with your kids.  Added bonus that it’s actually kinda fun to play your spouse too – especially if you’re competitive!
