The Baby Box Co has recently launched in the United States and is a company looking to focus on safe sleep habits for newborns. Finland has had a baby box since the 1930’s in which every single newborn is given a box to sleep in for its first few months along with necessities such as diapers and clothes. This has led to a major decline in infant mortality rates since its inception. I was thrilled to learn that this has now made its way here!

So like for this maternity box I wrote that i was still rocking normal pants, but really needed more tops, so she threw in one pair of leggings (That I did buy mind you!) and the rest were work clothes.
Ok so with a new little one on the way, I’ve been on the look out for all sorts of products to keep my little man safe and happy. When I got the chance to test this out i was thrilled! This is a great little tent perfect for a couple of small children even, that can go anywhere with us!
For the most part, us new moms know kind of what to expect from all the (horror) stories from our mom friends, mother’s, sister’s, everyone who’s ever given birth… But there are a few things that women just don’t pass on! And these SHOULD be the things we know about!
So did i miss anything else? Because let’s be honest, pregnancy brain is VERY real.
So I realize this is looooonnnnggggg…… Overdue. And so has a blog post been! But for those that don’t know, I’ve been a little erm…. Distracted the past few months.
Never fear we’re going to try to ramp this up again! Only with more cute little family and baby posts lol. Enjoy!
I know that this trays intended use is for jewelry but I’m always looking for different storage items in my craft room. This fit the bill perfectly for my odds and ends.
First off, I love that the material is a sackcloth type so that things don’t slide around too much. And with 24 compartments I have room for everything. I keep safety pins, paper clips, buttons, felt letters, pens, markers, thumbtacks and all other types of little things in mine.
I have huge feet for a woman. I wear a size 12 which equates to a men’s 10.5. Finding cute or fun shoes in my size is next to impossible.
I was so excited to find these! I’ve seen shoes like these online and never dreamed I’d find a pair that 1. Was my size and 2. Was a decent price point. Odema knocked it out of the park! First off I love how comfortable they are. They can easily be worn as an everyday shoe without the lights on and no one would know. The orange and gray color scheme is fun and practical. These are similar to running shoes. The side and tip are a breathable mesh. They have great arch support as well. As just a shoe these are perfect. I went on a mile and a half walk with my dog the first time I wore these out and I had zero break in issues! They were so comfortable!
The lights though are what totally make these fun. It comes with a micro USB charger that you plug into any USB and then it splits so you can charge both shoes at the same time. The charger port is on the inside towards where you would tie your laces. It fits in the hole where your ankle is so you never feel it and it’s not in the way at all. The button to control each shoe is located right below the charge ports.
Each shoe is controlled separately. You have your basic where it cycles through the colors and they stay on continuously, then there’s a strobing white, and then there’s a flash of each color. Then a combo flash and then slow dim from all the colors and then finally a slow fade through every color. Then off. The slow fade and the combo are my favorites. I kind of wish that it had a setting where it would change colors with every step I took, but that’s reminiscent of the light up shoes I never had as a child. These are super fun and I don’t have to worry about shock or the ports getting wet as they’re tucked inside the shoe. The battery pack is located under your heel, but there’s enough cushion that you don’t feel it while they’re on. I provided a free sample for review, but all opinions are unbiased and truthful. These have been a hit out at festivals and concerts. And it makes me easy to find in a crowd. I love these!!
I’ll admit I was a little (ok a lot) skeptical about a battery pack that can jump a car. But I was proved wrong just last week, when I had to work and hubby had already left for work, and my car wouldn’t start.
I had the battery pack charged to 3 out of the 4 blue lights it has to signal the charge level. I plugged in the jumper cables into their designated slot and then connect the red positive to the red positive and then black to black negative. The small box that separates the cables has a little light on it. It blinks red when it’s not connected right, blinks green when it’s getting juiced and set up, and stays lit green when it’s ready to go. One turn of the key and it started up!
I realized what the lights meant after I had tried to start it twice before it worked. I wasn’t waiting for the light to stay green. It had been blinking before when I had tried it. After starting my car it still showed 3 out of 4 charging lights too! You’re going to get a few full charges out of this if you use it just for your phone. I did purchase with a coupon but all opinions are honest and truthful. This is perfect to have in the car for every battery emergency needed!
