Cool Stuff For Kids


-11Fall Fashions for Little Girls

It’s here! My favourite time of year, and along with it, comfy cozy cool-weather fashions. As Isla gets older, she’s also embracing her own sense of style, which is reflective of her personality: a little girly, a little urban, and a little outdoorsy. Here are our favourite fall fashion pics for my precocious preschooler.


Our Fave Sippy Cups

We published a soft cover book to save on money and the final product only cost us about $15. Read more
