Last day to get 40% off @OshKoshBGosh with free shipping!  Really like the colorful silk-screen print-inspired bike graphic on this T.  It's now on sale for just $6 (regularly $18).  Would look great under a simple navy or grey garment-dyed hoodie….

Faux Leather Shorts

 Ahhh!!  I love these faux leather shorts from @GapKidsBabyGap.  They are just too cute - definitely a "mini-me" item!

I have a pair of leather shorts that I wear all the time in the summer…when I first bought them I didn't quite realize how versatile they would be both dressed up and down.  Day or night!

For girls they are adorable (as shown by the Gap model at left) paired quilted sweatshirt and sneakers.  They can easily transition to fall, worn with tights and boots.

$27 is not what I would spend, but I am sure they will go on sale...

Knot Genie

Spotted this #DetanglingBrush from @KnotGenie on sale for just $8 through @Zulily today (regularly $20).  It comes in all kinds of fun colors and finishes…like glitter, shiny, metallic.  I'm intrigued since my daughter's fine hair always seems to get knots in it… Do you use a detangling brush?  If so please share ~ would love to hear what you think!

Just Riding Around

Here is my son enjoying a carefree summer afternoon, just riding around on his bike…. 

The World Cup may be over but my son still loves wearing his favorite Messi shirt.  He always grabs it off the drying rack to wear as soon as it is washed!

Satin Ballet Bag

What an adorable bag for little dancers!

In pretty pink satin, it even comes with a separate compartment for her #ballet shoes.  On sale for $15 through Zulily (regularly $30).

I did find it handy to keep her ballet stuff in a separate bag so we could quickly grab and go on days when she had class....

Elsa & Anna Backpack

Was recently in the #Disney store in Times Square and saw this #Elsa & Anna backpack for $25…  Since it's actually quite pretty I bought it as a birthday present for my son's friend who is loves Frozen.

Crazy but that was pretty much all the #Frozen merchandise they had!  (Ok, maybe a couple other items but that was it.)  I wonder if it is an item exclusive to that store because I don't see it online...

#Elsa T

I must have heard at least 3 little girls singing #LetItGo from #DisneyFrozen walking to school the other day… and that didn't even include my own kids (who also sing the song all the time)!

This Elsa T is on sale for $14 online through Macy's (regularly $20); today only with promo code EXTRA you can get it for $10 (another 25% off).  At that price I'm sure it will sell out rather fast…

Kidoozie My First Purse


It's nice when my daughter packs and carries her own stuff in her own purse for a change….

Gotta love seeing the influence of her big brother:  inside her purse she was carrying a pink plane ("Rochelle" from Disney Planes) and a pink Hot Wheels car.

On her:  Circo for Target skirt and matching T-shirt, Keen shoes, Kidoozie My First Purse ($16 at diapers.com, with a cute flower on the front comes with things to put inside).

Thanks Auntie K for the purse!  :-)

Waiting backstage with her classmates to go on for their ballet rehearsal yesterday.
