Top 5 Must Have Travel Toys for Kids

Top 5 Must Have Travel Toys for Kids.

I’m constantly on the lookout for some really good travel toys. With 4 boys, it’s tough to travel anywhere (even 20 minutes!) without having them have some sort of stimulation. After awhile, they don’t want to sing anymore songs and they don’t want to play “Rocks, Papers or Scissors.” So it’s important for me to find and have some great toys on reserve for them in the car, on the train and on planes.

These are the Top 5 Must Have Toys for Kids:

Baby WhoozitThis is a staple for my son Henry. It makes him laugh and completely occupies his attention. It’s a HUGE hit!

Tiny Love Wonder Wheel

Music, sounds and tons of FUN! Your child will go crazy over this!

Leaps and Bounds Magnetic Art

This is fabulous play time for any child. They can be creative and have lots of fun at the same time!

Leaps and Bounds Car Valet

Keep all the markers, crayons and pens in safe places! This car valet is perfect for organization and keep a child stimulated.

Car Seat Gallery

Your child will love to sit and stare and engage with the black and white photos.

DONATE CLOTHES THIS WEEK!

I’m a huge fan of the Boys and Girls Club of America and H&M. This may seem like an odd pair to see together right now… but not now through April 28th!

All shoppers are invited to bring “gently worn children’s clothing” to any H&M store which will benefit Boys and Girls Clubs nationwide. As a thank you for doing so… H&M will be giving all people who donate a 20% off coupon.

Celebrity Mom Style: Gwyneth Paltrow

Celebrity Mom Style: Gwyneth Paltrow

She’s been in hiding lately… I don’t think I’ve seen any candids of Gwyneth is quite awhile. She’s one of my favorite style icons. She breezes effortlessly in Calvin Klein, Stella McCartney, Ralph Lauren… as well as the GAP and Old Navy. I love this look right here… this is her packing her car up in NYC. This is her as “Mom”… and that’s a refreshing look and taste. It’s amazing to see these big celeb moms in real life moments… and seeing them look absolutely chic, beautiful, natural and trendy.

Tips for Being Green Fasionista

Being Earth Month, I wanted to pass along some fabulous tips for staying “GREEN” in a fashion sense. There are so many amazing things that you and your family can be doing throughout the month of April to instill and educate each other on ways to save the Earth. I have really taken an approach with my own sons in taking a Sylvania Earth Day Challenge. We are committing to making energy-efficient actions this month, and it’s been an amazing eye-opener for us. My sons are having a blast with it, and we’re enjoying the time we’re spending with the TV off and the video games “put to bed.”

But where’s the fashion sense? How is it possible to be GREEN and FASHIONABLE?

Well, it is possible. You just need to make some changes in your fashion buying and thinking. I promise – you will still feel and look gorgeous!

Here are my Tips for Behttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifing a GREEN Fashionista:

1. Purchase 100% Organic Cotton Clothing. I’m not kidding… organic cotton is the softest in the world!

2. Recycle Clothing with your friends and/or buy vintage. It’s a way to reuse clothing over and over again.

3. Purchase Clothing made out of Recycled Materials. H&M has a FABULOUS dress made out of recycled water bottles! It’s amazing.
