We Love KidBox!

Kid Box Summer Update

Getting boxes in the mail can make every day feel more like a holiday! It’s so exciting to unwrap the packaging and see what new, exciting thing is waiting for you, especially when you can color all over the box after you  open it. KidBox is a clothing subscription service designed specifically for little ones like my Jack, who is really loving his summer freedom. Unlike other subscriptions, you only pay for what you keep! We end up keeping everything that comes in the box because not only is it the best value, but it also means Kidbox will clothe a child in need! How awesome is that? We have always tried to infuse the values of giving back in different ways, and this is such a wonderful way that even a four and half year old can understand. 

Now that he’s graduated from preschool, he spends his days going to swim lessons, visiting the park, and creating his own art projects. Occasionally, he even drops in to the studio to help sort markers in rainbow order or stage his own photos!

Kid Box Summer Update

Unlike my growing boy, I don’t get summers off. Any type of time saver is actually a lifesaver! As many of you know, Kidbox sends us boxes with 7-8 items about 5 times per year. That might sound like a lot of math but it actually adds up to a ton of savings! Each box only costs $98.

We Love Kidbox!

This was our second box from Kidbox (read about the first one here) and as you can see, the new selections did not disappoint. You can order boxes for infants through size 14 and tailor clothing selections based on your child's preferences through a fun little online quiz. It's simple, fast, and easy. It frees me up to spend my downtime having fun with my son this summer.

Make Something Everyday

Make Something Everyday

I truly believe that one of the best ways to craft a life you love is to do something creative everyday. I'm passionate about infusing creativity into our lives and inspiring Jack to express himself through art. Hoping this 15 minutes of fun on the sidewalk brightens someone's day. Hoping to do more of these shoefies around town. What are you making today?

My boots (under $80!) can be found here and Jack's awesome loafers (in Cognac) can be found here.

Can I Get A Heck Yes?!

Amy Tangerine Heck Yes Tee for Cents of Style

It's something I say a little too often, along with "amazing", "awesome" and "oh my gosh", which after being told by some children that I said a bad word, I am now going to try and change to "oh my goodness". I had no idea! Goodness sounds better anyway. In any case, you may remember my collaboration with Cents Of Style where we used the Heck Yes on a zippered pouch? Well, it's back and this time it's on a tee shirt just in time for Spring!

Happy Friday, friends! In case you didn't know, I used to wear a tee shirt and jeans every single day. While I am still all about comfort, I want to take it up a notch and this outfit might just be the trick. The whole outfit is from Cents of Style and the super soft tunic is just $19.95 + FREE SHIPPING w/code TOPSTORY through 3/26. I paired it with pants similar to these, which have a bunch of holes in them but the colored denim make them feel fresh and fun for spring.

Fashion Friday | California Dreaming Mural

IMG_2338.JPG

We have been getting a mix of interesting weather in Los Angeles this winter. The sunshine tax we pay for living here has definitely not been worth it this winter. In my thirteen years of being a local, I don't recall the winters ever being this way before. One day it will be 70 degrees and sunny and then it will rain for three days straight. I'm not complaining, as I am well aware that in spite of all the rain we've had, we are still in a drought. On the bright side though, I put a little spring into my step after seeing this freshly painted mural in Culver City. It's huge - 26 feet X 74 feet - and was completed February 1st by artist Ricardo Gonzalez of It's A Living.  It's at the Chinese Laundry headquarters and faces East, so if the sun is shining, I recommend going in the late afternoon. If it's overcast and cloudy go anytime, as you won't get a strange shadow that is typically on it all morning and early afternoon.

We caught the very last bit of light and Alisha from Lish Creative worked her magic and snapped these photos just in time. I paired the Cynthia Floral Skirt in Fuchsia/Teal/White from Cents of Style with a simple white long sleeve shirt and a borrowed denim jacket (the embroidery says "mommy" in case you are trying to read it). The bright and poppy colors of the skirt paired with these grey boots are my new favorite combination. And ladies, there may have never been a more comfortable pencil skirt. Ever. Because of the stretchy fabric and versatile colors, I may have worn it two days in a row. I simply changed it up with a black jacket and a different white tee shirt. I also paired it with my yellow Tieks and it might be what I will be living in all Spring. It would look amazing paired with these fuchsia Tieks, which are the next on my wishlist. You can see all the Fashion Friday floral skirts here. DISCOUNT CODE for a limited time, all floral skirts are $19.95 with the code FLORAL STORY!

Happy Friday and let me know in the comments if you make it to this mural!
