03 Jul: 5 Self-Care Tips For New Parents

5 Self-Care Tips For New Parents This is a guest post from Zencare, a website that helps people find their ideal talk therapist.   Early parenthood is full of adventures – loving visitors stopping by to share your joy, lifelong memories formed in an instant, and learning experiences you’re excited to weather on the fly.    Yes, embracing a new life is enriching – and it’s also, from time to time, exhausting.

25 Jun: Healthy Snail Fruit Snack DIY 

For this DIY, we took inspiration from our favorite Baby Noomie pajama from our spring collection! Our rainbow snails PJ and footie have been a hit since we brought them out, so we decided to dedicate a little activity to our most popular girl pajama of the season! This healthy snack is super easy to make and has only 5 ingredients.   Ingredients: Banana Blueberries Strawberries Kiwi Pineapple Instructions: Wash and slice all of the fruits you will be using for the shell of the snail. Start with your peeled banana as the base/body of your snail. Begin to build your rainbow from the bottom up. I started with blueberries and made my way up to strawberries. Use a blueberry as an eye, and some thinly sliced strawberries as antennas Watch your little ones enjoy! We love to prove that snack time can be healthy and fun, so tune in…

21 Jun: How to plan the perfect pajama party

Set a date, Guest list, and times: Our party started at 7pm and we had 7 girls total. It was the perfect amount to not be overwhelmed but had enough girls at the party.   Set a theme: I went with the Unicorn theme for my daughter and had all the girls wearing unicorn pajamas! I also love the idea of an animal themed party for boys with bulldog pajamas or panda pajamas. Themes aren’t totally necessary, but it makes it easier to plan activities and crafts. Invitations: I sent mine out through evites and made sure everyone RSVP’d so I had a proper head count and I didn’t have too much or too little of anything. Snacks: Pizza is the easiest way out. I turned dessert into an activity and had the girls make their own unicorn cupcakes with tons of edible glitter. Activities/Crafts: Apart from our dessert making,…
