What We're Loving Lately

What We're Loving Lately

I received some of the items below free for review. I only share my genuine favorites on my blog. 

With 7 people living in our home, we try a lot of new products! Some things are just okay, and some things end up on our favorites list. Every so often, I share a roundup of the things my family is loving lately!

On our list is a functional item, a must have baby item, a new shampoo that I'm currently using, a new TV show for young kids, and wellness and self-care products. I try to include something for everyone! Here's what we're loving lately...

Paw Patrol Toy Cubby from Delta Children

We have so many toys in our home, so I'm always trying to work on toy storage! The sturdy wooden Paw Patrol toy cubby from Delta Children contains the mess, and is Liam's new favorite! He's a big fan of Paw Patrol, so he loves the colorful characters on the toy cubby. I was able to anchor it to the wall once we found a good place to keep it, and I filled it with some of his favorite toys that help him work on his fine motor skills. (Coen loves some of those toys, too!)

The UpSeat

I mentioned the UpSeat in this post, and I've fallen even more in love with it since then. We use it all the time for Coen! It's a floor seat and booster seat that comes with a tray and safety straps for feeding and playtime. It was developed with the help of physical therapists, and encourages better posture. We love this seat! If you want to purchase one, you can use the code Stefanie10 to save 10%.

Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo from Maple Holistics

This apple cider vinegar shampoo made with raw Apple Cider Vinegar is paraben and sulfate free. It also contains rosemary and wild mint essential oil, sunflower, argan, castor, and jojoba oil.  I use it twice a week to remove buildup, and it leaves my hair feeling soft and looking shiny!

Butterbean's Cafe

This new nickelodeon series features four adorable fairies (Butterbean and her Bean Team) who teach life lessons while baking delicious treats! We thought the characters were really cute, and the episodes were sweet. We already whipped up Butterbean's Rainbow Yogurt Dip, and we have big plans to make Dazzle's Lemon Vanilla Smoothie this weekend! If you have little kids, check out Butterbean's Cafe!

CVS Wellness Products

CVS added new wellness products to their store that focus on self-care and well-being! I was gifted a box of products, and I loved trying (almost) everything out, and even found a product that is a new favorite!

CVS Wellness & Self Care Products

  • Asutra Spray Pain Away Magnesium Oil Spray - I'm not quite sure why, but the ankle I hurt when I was a teenager has been bothering me lately. By the end of the day, it just feels sore. This spray actually seems to help soothe aches and pains!
  • Navitas Organics Focus Daily Superfood Boost - This supplement is organic, gluten-free, and vegan. I mix a scoop into my smoothie or yogurt a few days a week, and it makes me feel more alert!
  • Be Well Teas get wellness Herb Tea For Immunity - I drink tea everyday, and I loved the flavor of this one. It's made with immune-boosting Organic Red Rooibos and echinacea, and it's caffeine-free so I can drink it all day long!
  • Bee & You Bee Pollen Whole Granules - I honestly didn't know much about this supplement, so I did some research. It can help with asthma and allergies, but should be avoided by women who are breastfeeding, so I handed that one over to my husband! Seasonal allergies seem to be starting with him for the first time ever, so we're interested to see if it helps. 
  • Gaiam Relax Lavender Neck & Shoulder Wrap - THIS. This is my new favorite. I didn't think I would love it tthis much, but I really do. It's a weighted wrap that can be warmed up in the microwave, or cooled in the freezer, plus it's infused with a calming lavender scent. It truly does make me feel calmer and more relaxed, and it really helps when I get a headache or sore neck. The weight of it feels very comforting. (I think I just might need to try a weighted blanket!) I'm actually using it as I type. A bonus is that it calms Coen down, too. He tends to get fussy. Last week, he was crying a lot, so placed it on his belly to distract him. He immediately relaxed! I think the weight of it on his belly feels comforting! Now, we share it!
