Maybe The Cutest July 4th Swimsuits for Babies!

Independence Day is around the corner and for many, that means trips to the beach of the pool. There are tons of very cute swim options for girls and boys out nowadays. The variety and style make it super fun and easy to get dressed up in mommy and Me or daddy and me fashion.

This Seersucker swimsuit for $24.99 on an adult though this version by Gymboree only comes in sizes 3 to 6 months to 12.

Equally attractive, is the Striped Rosette Swimsuit for the same price. Both on sale down from about $40 but that price cannot beat the Rope 2-piece swimsuit for $14.99

And here are other fun swim suits starting at $14.99 by Gymboree’s sister brand Janie and Jack.

Isabella Oliver

Isabella Oliver is a celebrity fave maternity designer. When I was expecting, I wore some of these designs and found the signature ruching on the size forgiving and breathable. The aesthetic is simple and they stick to clean lines. I love this brand because you can wear the pieces under a denim or casual jacket or pair them with pearls and heels and the clothes work either way. IO also sells shoes, belts and other accessories.

Gymboree

I know from first hand experience that the quality of the clothing is superior. They last in the wash and the colors do not fade. The brand is known for selling very well coordinated pieces with whimsical characters or in solids, neutrals and other long-lasting hues. The clothing is made of natural materials mostly, and they look really cute. I’ve blogged about this brand often before because I am a believer in it. It’s the brand all the affluent suburban moms outfit their kids in so you know it’s top stuff. (smile).  Gymboree sells from baby to tween.

Umi Shoes

Umi makes shoes with technology and comfort in mind.  Each shoe is lightweight and ergonomically fit for your child’s growing feet. They come in packaging made of 100% recycleable materials. The price point is reasonable and these shoes are durable and can stand the test of playground time and rough and tumble.

Naturpedic

Since your baby will be spending most of her time (up to 18 hours a day) in her crib, it is important to get the right mattress and not go cheap. Get the best you can.  An eco-friendly foam and innerspring mattresses like the ones sold by Naturpedic tend to be made with fewer chemicals, plastics, and PVC (vinyl), and a greater percentage of renewable and sustainable materials, such as cotton, fast-growing bamboo, coir, plant-based foam, and natural latex (rubber from tree sap that’s been injected with air). Also, the manufacturing process for some eco-friendly crib mattresses tends to produce fewer carbon emissions. The Naturepedic No-Compromise Organic Cotton Classic 150 crib mattress shown here has a “U.S.-grown organic cotton filling” and a polyethylene plastic waterproof surface that, the manufacturer says, is free of vinyl/ PVC, phthalates, lead, or antimicrobial biocides. It sells for $260. The outer cover of this mattress might limit the exposure to toxins.

ABC Mouse

I’ve boasted plenty about this online learning platform for kids. I purchased a subscription for my daughter when she was 4 and she followed the curriculum through the end. Today, she is a top reader, tests in the 99% for reading and gets all As in school. I credit her early start from this program which is having a sale through Cyber Monday of 63% off its annual fee. This is perfect equalizer for those who cannot afford to pay a tutor for their child like some of the most affluent amnong us. ABC Mouse is used in schools and many early learning centers around the nation and globe!

Pittman and Davis

This Holiday season, consider giving a gift of food! Fruit baskets, cakes, candy and other assorted food items are great for giving employees, teachers, vendors, a boss, colleagues, clients and the like. Also, order a few small gift baskets to give as host gifts when you go over people’s homes for parties, gatherings, dinners and other social gatherings this holiday season. Pittman and Davis have been shipping orchard  orchard fresh fruit, smoked meats, cheeses, pastries, candies and other scrumptious gift food items for over 80 yeas. The family owned company is based in Texas. All items are shipped and delivered fresh with a money-back guarantee for deliveries that do not meet up to company standards. Shipping food items can be a very quick and relatively inexpensive way to knock out your holiday gifting for distant and extended family and business relationships in one fell swoop.

Fresh Ruby Red Grapefruit, Orange, Pear and Apple Gifts

Bajuken

Baukjen is the sister brand to Isabella Oliver. Because it is by the same designer, you can expect to find similar clean simple styling and lines. Quality constructed soft, stretchable and breathable all natural materials.

Janie and Jack

This is the slightly more upscale sister brand to Gymboree. The clothing looks for posh to me. The price point is higher.

Crazy 8

And Crazy 8 is the less upscale sister brand to Gymboree. Clothing is still top quality but you can get insane deals starting at $4 for tops. They have a large variety of options and are great for stacking on on play clothes.

Le Tote

Le Tote is the best subscription box for preginistas who are new moms-to-be and don’t have time any longer to figure out their clothes. Members get sjo[[ed unlimited number of apparel and accessories each month. It just recently entered the maternity wear business and it just recently started offering maternity wear. We love it so much, we’ve partnered with Le Tote as affiliates. It is having a Cyber Week Sale! Take 85% off First Month of Le Tote Rental! Ends 12/1

Wild Dill

I love Wild Dill because it combines commerce with conscious shopping. They source their goods direct from the creators in Africa, South America, Israel and all over the world and sell them online for a fair share of the profit which is different from what a lot of companies do: they steal the concept, create duplicates in China made of sub par material and market them as authentic.

Nested Bean

The latest on our radar is a swaddle blanket that takes the guess work out of swaddling a new born and adds technology of “touch” so baby can feel even more secure when sleep. It’s called The Zen Swaddle and it was created by a desperate mom who came up with an ingenious solution for some long sleepless nights.

Urth Box

Urthbox specializes in sending healthy, delicious and tasty new snacks from local stores and vendors.  Delivered each month, the curated collection is designed to serve as an alternative to unhealthy snacking in the face of stress, busy schedules, and other life struggles and to complement a healthy, fit lifestyle.

Creation Crate

STEM (Science, Techonology, Engineering and Math) is a big deal these days and getting kids interested in this discipline of topics can be tough. With a subscription box from Creation Crate, your kid gets a project to make each time. It’s more than software though, the projects include a building component to it.

This Very Smart, Savvy Mom Consignment Shopping Secret in MD just got BIGGER – HUGE!

 

 

Okay. This luxury baby products consignment extravaganza hosted in Maryland twice each year has to be one of the most innovative things around!

The schtick: Get savvy, sophisticated, smart and eco-conscious moms who love and value quality designer clothes, baby goods and products together to upcycle items they and their children no longer use and fit and earn some extra cash in the process.

And for those who don’t have much to sell  or are brand new moms or mega shoppers, invite them to come shop for FREE and stock up on durable top brand merchandise and gently-worn clothing for their brood at a tiny fraction of the cost of buying new!

That’s the idea behind Wee-Sale of Maryland which is going on this weekend. The organizers outgrew one of their old locations and have decided this fall to combine their Anne Arundel, Charles and Prince George’s County sales they host each year into one mega sale at the Wayne Curry Sports and Learning Complex in Hyattsville, Maryland.

“If you loved any of our sales in the past, this mega sale promises to be the best yet ,” said Mimi Shea, founder of the Wee-Sale. “We simply outgrew our old locations and are thrilled to now work in the most spacious of venues yet! The Sport and Learning Complex is ideal to display the thousands of kids/baby items our consignors bring season after season. It is centrally located for most of our past consignors and shoppers and we hope to add some new fans of the Wee-Sale too! We are so very excited about the Wee-MEGA-Sale!!”

wee sale

Gymboree, Baby Gap, Ralph Lauren, Janie and Jack, Wheat, Peg Perego, Graco, Fisher Price, Pottery Barn Kids, a wide array of boutique fashions and much more to fit newborns to kids size 16 – all will be available.

And, I love the fact it has a New Mom day for brand spanking new moms or those who have recently adopted a baby. For $10, they get to come a day ahead of the 4-public days and shop first.  Sadly, space for that day is already sold out this year, but isn’t it a great concept?

Those who donate must give a minimum of 30 items to sell but with no max, tho there are max limits for clothing for space purposes. The hosts keep 45% of the sales but those who donate clothes can earn a higher commission on their items by volunteering!

So, for example, if you work three 4-hour shifts, you can keep 70% of your sales and get chances to shop early yourself.

It’s a super ingenious way to staff the event without having to incur added overhead costs of hiring sales staff.

And it pays. The creators say the average consignor pockets about $250 in cash. Sweet!

But what if you’ve got too much going on and don’t have time to sort, wash, prep and price your stuff? Don’t sweat it!

You can pay a $30 drop off fee and give up a small percentage of your consignment commission to a “Busy Mom” associate who will do all that for you! So smart!

At the end of the weekend, all unsold merchandise get donated to charity so it’s a win-win-win situation!
