Small Shop Spotlight: Pegs n’ Things

Several months ago I connected with this beautiful and sweet mama, Alix. She was pregnant with her second child and we always had the nicest interactions. Then I discovered that she is a total #momboss with an Etsy shop for her adorable peg doll creations. She is so talented and I’m thrilled to feature Pegs n’ Things for my Small Shop Spotlight!

Small Shop Spotlight: Bela Bracelets

A hair tie on the wrist is the universal symbol for a woman on the go. You never know when you’ll need to pull that hair out of your face, replace one that breaks, or lend one to a friend in need. 😉 Seriously, everybody needs them but they’re a far cry from stylish. Until now!

Bela Bracelets is today’s Small Shop Spotlight feature, and their hair tie bracelets are a must-have.


Fashion meeting function is always a win in my book. Let’s get to know the makers!

I’m a bit paranoid about just having my DSLR out without some sort of protection, but the bulky and boring bag we got from the electronics store just wasn’t cutting it. I instantly fell in love with my pretty, spacious and functional bag (there’s room for my personal items too!), and knew I had to feature the gracious Lynn and her store for my Small Shop Spotlight!

Re-Play Review: Bringing Fun and Sustainability to the Dinner Table

I don’t know about you, but snacks and mealtime are always an adventure in this house. Palates change in an instant, whining commences, appetites fade, favorites become hated, and after all the fussing and negotiating finally wears thin, Mommy stops feeling guilty for serving the exact same thing for the 45th day in a row. 😂 Ok, perhaps a slight exaggeration, but the one plus in an often unpredictable situation is knowing that you have great and durable tableware to use to serve your children’s food. This is where Re-Play Recycled comes in!
