The easiest 2 Minute Pigtails

It’s been a minute since Milo and I have done a hair tutorial and we’ve missed it! One baby later, a move from Utah to Arizona and we’re back. Hallelujah!

We’re excited to share this one with you guys because it’s EASY! This hairstyle is by far the easiest one out of any that we’ve previously shared. I’m pretty confident that even dudes can do it.

All you need for this hairstyle are these POLYBANDS and a hairbrush. I prefer a WETBRUSH because I’m pretty sure it has some type of magical power in it that gets tangles out like they’re nothing.

I would love to hear about your experience while creating this hairstyle! Leave a comment here or on my YouTube if you want to let me know.

Back to school with Milo

  • I’m a sucker for a good pair of little girls culottes.  These ones that are photographed are sold out but these DENIM CULOTTES are even better.
  • Milo has the FJALLRAVEN BACKPACK in peach pink and I’m loving it in this purple color as well.  If you scroll through the colors you will find the peach pink as well. Here is another PEACH BACKPACK similar to Milo’s but cheaper.
  • This BE KIND TOP is only $7.99!
  • Just bought this EMBROIDERED TUNIC for Milo
  • Bought these WATER RESISTANT SANDALS in both colors
  • If you need a good pair of girly, SLOUCH PANTS, these are the winners
  • You can’t go wrong with this simple STRIPED DRESS
  • I love how easy it is for Milo to put on these SLIP ON CHECKERED VANS by herself, especially after playing at recess and having her shoes full of sand
  • This CREWCUTS ROMPER is 40% off!
  • By far my favorite top that we purchased for school.  The cutest CROCHET TOP
  • These are probably the most used WHITE SHOES of Milo’s because they easily go with everything
  • I need these SKINNY JEANS in my size, I’m obsessed
  • I love love this simple FLORAL DRESS.  I love how girly it is and that you can pair it with some cute sneakers or sandals
  • These STRIPED SHORTS are flowy and so comfortable. Another option in FLORAL.
  • Milo wears these FRAYED BLACK SHORTS the most
  • Every little girl needs a good pair of DENIM OVERALLS and the light wash on these is the best
  • We’ve always had a pair of these SK8 SHOES.  They’re easy to slip on and off with their velcro straps and add some extra style to Milo’s outfits
  • Obsessed with this FLORAL JUMPER.

our go-to baby products

Happy Monday, friends!  I wanted to update you on some of my favorite baby products now that Raen is 5 weeks old.  I’ve been able to give some new ones a try and have been using others since Milo was itty bitty (she’s almost 6 now, whaaaaat!).  It’s crazy how much can change and what new products can come out between having your first and third baby.  Either way, each of these have become a staple in our home and I wanted to be sure to share them with you.

BABY ITEMS

1 I2 I3 I4 I5 I6 I7 I8 I9

1.  These orthodontic BINKIES!  I’m sure you’ve seen them all over the place but have you ever noticed the price?  They’re expensive and I found them in a set of three for almost the same price you regularly pay for one.  They’re 100% rubber, Paraben free, made without chemicals and are great for the development of your baby.  I bought two packs.

2.  I’ve used this BATHTUB for all of my babies.  It’s easy to use, can be folded at an angle making it perfect for bathing newborns and can be extended all the way down for bath time for a growing baby.  It folds up flat making it easy to store behind the door on a hook.

3.  If you already have a MAMAROO then you just know. There are 5 different motions like “car ride, wave, swing” etc. making it easy to find what your baby likes.  Did I mention it has bluetooth?  You can control it from your phone — done!

4.  I’ve used this same DRYING RACK for all three of my kids now.  It’s easy to wipe down and obviously lasts forever.

5.  I’ve always heard about the SMART SOCK but this is the first baby I’ve used it with and now I’m wondering how I survived without it.  It uses wi-fi to continuously read your baby’s heart rate and oxygen levels.  The best part is the base station alerts you if your baby’s oxygen or heart rate drop too low, turning red with an alarm.  Just a few weeks ago when Raen was 1 week old, his heart rate dropped below 60 and he wasn’t breathing.  The base station started alarming and was red letting me know instantly what was happening.  I woke up and was able to grab him startling him and getting him to start breathing again.  He probably would have started breathing on his own eventually but you just never know in that situation and I’m glad I had it.  I don’t feel like I have to check every two seconds on how he’s doing and when my husband has him, the base station is right next to me to let me know he’s ok.

6.  If you want a pop of color and a DIAPER BAGwith lots of pockets and a changing pad built straight into it, this is your bag.

7.  Have you seen the wood pacifier clips that are $18 for one?  That’s crazy to me!  These PACIFIER CLIPS are $10.99 and you get a pack of FIVE!!

8.  I’ve had this DIAPER BAG for over three years now and it still looks like new.  It has big pockets, it’s easy to wipe down and the best part is my husband doesn’t mind carrying it around with it’s neutral tones.

9.  All three of my kids have used these BOTTLES and I don’t plan on switching any time soon.  To be honest, they basically feel like a boob and they’re easy to clean!  They come in 5oz for newborns and 8oz as your baby grows.

Feel free to ask any questions!
