Y’all! I cannot believe we are literally closing in on the last month of my pregnancy. Back in November, when I saw that positive test, July seemed SO far away. Yet, here we are! I’ve slowly been adding to my boy mom stockpile and I just had to share these favorites with you, and their respective shops!
Freshly Picked sent me these moccasins in return for my honest and transparent review. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
Yes my friends, you’ve read that correctly! We’ve finally gotten our hands on the popular Freshly Picked moccasins. Let me start by saying, your kiddo needs these shoes in their life, and I’ll tell you why, duh.
Freshly Picked was started by a mama who was fed up with the lack of well designed shoes.
Her dream is seriously my saving grace. Both of my boys have had chunky feet as babies and toddlers, and finding comfortable shoes that fit them properly is nearly impossible. Wyatt’s feet have finally thinned out, thank goodness, but Westin is still struggling with shoes.
Before Westin was born we started stocking up his closet with shoes, ALL of which never even fit him. Every where we went he was either barefoot or in slip resistant socks. So surely you can understand my excitement after working with Freshly Picked to find the right fit for my little man!
Shipping was super quick and within 4 days Westin’s first box of moccasins were at our door. I ordered him the birch in size 7, which retail for $60, and they fit LIKE A GLOVE. With the help of the elastic opening and a little cooperation from my son, he was ready to roll in his new shoes. These pictures were taken 20 minutes after they came in the mail, he was so thrilled!
The color of these moccasins go with everything!
They are so versatile that I don’t have to worry about them not matching a certain outfit. I know these will come in handy when we are rushing out the door this fall to drop his big brother off to school. They’re so easy to slip on yet they stay on and don’t cause any discomfort for him whatsoever. He would sleep in these things if he wanted to.
As a mama I want to do whatever I can do to make sure my toddler is comfortable and stylin’. With Freshly Picked I did just that. He’s got this thing for shoes, and he gets it from his daddy, and out of all the shoes he’s been able to fit in these are by far my favorite.
Don’t miss your chance to win your choice of a pair of soft sole moccasins for your little one! Click on over to my Instagram page, starting July 24th 7pm CST, to enter! The winner will be announced on the original giveaway post Sunday July 31st!
These products shown below were gifted to me in return for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own. I’m keeping it real!
Nuby has always been a part of my parenting essentials, literally since day one. Now, as a Nuby Parent Blogger, I am excited to bring you an inside look at some of their new products and share my personal review of them!
First up I want to share the Busy Sipper with y’all! I absolutely loved this cup! I mean.. my son absolutely loved this cup. The design made it super easy for him to grab and it made him feel like a big boy by the look of it. I was pretty impressed with the no spill silicone sprout, which is step 1 to this 2 stage cup. My son gets irritated being in a car seat, always has and probably always will be, I am able to keep this cup in my purse, covered with the travel cover, and when he gets fussy I can toss it back there and not have to worry about it leaking all over the place. It’s also BPA free, which makes mama happy!
Step 2 is a pop up top that flows freely, like a water bottle.. We definitely aren’t ready for that kind of trust yet but I love knowing that I’ll get all the use I can out of this one cup. For now I’ll just be able to occasionally let my 5 year old use that feature!
Next up is the Nuby Keepeez, also BPA free. This one is seriously such a life saver. My toddler loves to throw cups and he’s not about to stop any time soon. The Keepeez is a harness that effectively keeps cups from dropping on the ground. One end has a buckle lock that fits on buggy handles, some stroller pieces, and high chairs. The other end is equipped with an adjustable spring powered push button lock, that loosens and tightens around a sippy cup.
The Keepeez comes in many colorful and fun patters and you can grab yours on Amazon, launching this July!
I used the Keepeez with the Busy Sipper because of the sippers attached clip, It made the Keepez baby proof and impossible for my toddler to figure out.

Let’s talk hair you guys!! As a new Madison Reed Affiliate I could not be more excited to share my experience with you. Let’s just start off by saying, I was voted most likely to color my hair in high school.. True story!! Those definitely were not my glory days and I did some major damage to my hair, it hasn’t been the same since. I’ve never been one to sit down and get my hair done either, unless I need something done that I can’t do, like highlights or something, I’ll do it myself.
I’ve had my eye on Madison Reed for quite some time now and I’m pretty sure you’ve heard of them too because lately they’ve been everywhere! It was my sign to go ahead give it a try.
So there it was, laying open on my desk. As I unloaded this baby I realized exactly what the hype was. Included is everything you would ever need to get your home hair dye job done, effortlessly. You get the color, developer, shampoo and conditioner, a hair cap, barrier cream so the dye doesn’t stain your skin and a cleansing wipe incase any mess-ups occur. Which I obviously used because I’m a klutz.
Madison Reed color is handcrafted in Italy, and those women over there have gorgeous hair!! They have found a way to deliver salon quality results without all the harmful irritating chemicals like ammonia, gluten, parabens and PPD. Which do nothing but irritate the scalp, dry out, and strip your hair from its natural oils. Madison Reed prides themselves on keeping this hair color in a low chemical profile. Using Argan Oil, which is non greasy, helps to tame frizz, promotes a healthy shine, and even triggers hair growth. Keratin, which smoothes hair and leaves it silky smooth. Ginseng Root is in this magical formula too, it can also promote hair growth by stimulating blood flow to the scalp, and improving the health of hair follicles cells.. which prevents hair loss!
Are you not entertained?! Take a look at my hair before using Madison Reed. It was neglected, straight up, no doubt about it, in need of some serious TLC. I had no idea how bad it was until after I used Madison Reeds products. I’d let the pictures speak for themselves BUT I have even more to say. Duh.
When you head over to the Madison Reed website you’ll be promoted to fill out a hair profile which will then show you the colors that suit you best. Which is great because if you skip too many shades your color can be tarnished and you’ll get something you never even wanted in the first place. I was recommended to try Venezia Brown and I am LOVING it y’all. Its pretty close to my natural color, which I think suits me even better.
The hair love doesn’t just stop there, Madison Reed offers more than just hair color, they offer color reviving glosses, styling products, shampoo and conditioner, root touch up powder, and so much more!
I’m more than happy with my results and its safe to say I will never use another drug store box color again. Find your perfect hair color now!
