December days (or daze...)

December days
December, you're always crazy. The good kind of crazy though. But in between christmasy errands and stuffing our calendar to the brim with christmas activities (zoo lights! santa! downtown tree lighting!) you'll most likely find Beck and I on the fluffy rug in his room playing with his favorite toys and reading the same book 20 times in a row (right now that book is I Want My Hat Back).

For the most part he's content to play in his room all day long, pounding away on his piano then pulling the books off his shelves then trying to get the record off his little record player, rolling around with his bear and making all his animal figures roar, the lion is his favorite so naturally they all roar like the lion.

I know I say this all the time but this age is so fun.

p.s. his adorable jumpsuit is from Winter Water Factory,  I am obsessed with everything they make, we have these two too!
And it just so happens he got a nicolas cub bear from Hazel Village  with a matching outfit. I die every time he's wearing them and playing with the bear.

LEAF luxx

Happy Wednesday! Indeed, it is a happy wednesday since I have a super awesome giveaway from Nuna. The new LEAF Luxx (which will be available exclusively at Neiman Marcus) is a swaying baby seat that is chic and cute, doesn't require batteries, and can be used for newborns all the way up to big kids (130lb limit!).
I'm in love with the minimal design—no cords, no taking up half the room, no eye-sore.

These are magic for getting fussy babies to go to sleep and for mom to catch a shower. You can check out the regular Nuna LEAF to get an idea of its awesome swaying power.

If only I could put my name into the giveaway for my next baby. ;)

The giveaway is for today only and the winner be chosen at midnight!

Just leave a comment and enter through the rafflecopter widget below. You can follow me on facebook or twitter for more entries too (but that isn't mandatory of course).

Good luck!!

Tis the season for gift-giving!

A very cold day // Zappos

It's officially December... Christmas is a few weeks + a few days away! (eeeeee!!) Which means holiday shopping us upon us! I loooove gift-giving and making lists of ideas for everyone and seeking out something special. But I kind of loathe shopping malls... I get overwhelmed and hot (is that just me??) and every store is unorganized and there are so. many. people. So online shopping, its my thing. Just me on the couch finding the best gifts for everyone on our list, doesn't get much better than that!

I was excited to be invited to be a part of a fun blogger gift exchange in partnership with Zappos, which is the ultimate holiday shopping destination for people like me (aka: homebodies) since they have everything! It's like the whole mall in one online store with super fast free shipping, plus you have an entire year to return something should it not work out, and their customer service is awesome! Hallelujah.

So the gift exchange! We were given the bloggers info and it was up to us to look at their social outlets (thank you pinterest) and pick out a couple gifts for them. I got paired up with the gals at Small Fry Blog and had a blast shopping for them. Here's what I got them (fingers crossed they like everything!) You can see their post here!

1. D'orsay Shoes 2. Tote 3. Cozy Scarf  4. Pom hat 5. Brixton hat 6. Antler Socks

And those girls are sneaky and got me something that had been on my wish list for ages: these Sam Edelman Petty boots. They are a dream! They also picked out this wool hat and a pretty Deborah Lippman lipstick! Thanks for the fun opportunity Zappos, it was a blast!
