I don’t know about you, but I HATE shopping (now).  When I was younger in my 20’s I loved it.  I loved going to the mall, planning out my wardrobe for the week and “shopping til I dropped”.  As a mom of 4, my time is extremely VALUABLE! Anything that can make my life easier I am here for it, and that’s why I absolutely wanted to partner with Easy Kicks!  Easy Kicks is the only sneaker club subscription box that allows parents to easily shop for their fast growing kids.  IMG_2818

Since easy kicks is backed by Nike, they are able to offer various styles at an amazing deal!  Seriously your choice of cool Nike and Converse delivered to your door each month for only $20?! IMG_2824

Sign up is so easy all you have to do is the following 4 steps:

  1. Sign up and pick your kicks
  2. Wear your kicks out and return them
  3. Order new kicks
  4. Repeat steps 2 & 3

The kids were thrilled when their new kicks arrived!  Details are so important to me and Easy Kicks didn’t let us down when the shoes arrived they were individually labeled with each kids name!

Because Easy Kicks makes it so EASY for you, they include a prepaid return bag, in our case Elle’s shoes were a little snug so we got to utilize this option and we look forward to the process!

In addition to all the personalized items, Easy Kicks also sent cute stickers, because what kids doesn’t like stickers?

One thing I love about Easy Kicks, it that they either donate used shoes to kids in need or recycle them into playgrounds or sports fields with the help of Nike Grind.  I can’t think of a better deal, seriously! Cool shoes, free delivery, personalized experience, and donations to a great cause! Sounds like a total winner in our books and I know you will absolutely love this program for your child(ren)!

#KidGoals with Gymboree

Summer’s officially OVER, and I don’t know about you but I feel like it really flew by.  I mean we are already wrapping up Elle’s first week of school.  I can hardly believe that Elle is in the 3rd grade.  This year Maveric will be off to Pre-K and since Jagger is 2, we are letting him attend preschool twice a week.  Although it’s only half days, I am all in my feelings about Jagger venturing off to school.  Yesterday, Jagger’s teachers came by to do a home visit and we discussed our goals for the year.  It really resonated with me how important it is to have attainable goals, not only with my self but with the kids as well.  .

 

We have been given the opportunity to partner with Gymboree and share our #KidGoals for the school year and Gymboree really came through with some cool gear just in time for back to school! Here’s a snap shot of a few of the pieces, each of the kids have their own style and especially since I have 3 boys, it’s so important to get durable staple pieces that will last and be able to pass down to the next “little bro”

My little fashionista Elle, is all about the emjoi’s, currently her goals for 3rd grade are to knock those EOG’s out of the park! It’s funny we just started school and she’s already thinking about end of grade testing! My personal goal for Elle is to come out of her shell and show her secret talents of singing and dancing in  PUBLIC!  She’s awesome and we just want to support her dreams in anyway possible.

Maveric is off to Pre-K and we are so excited for him,  if you’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting him, you know he’s a BALL of energy and one of his favorite places in to release energy is at the playground!  His goal for the school year is to play, eat lunch and go to music class!

My personal goal for Maveric is to master his penmanship and continue to indulge in his love for music!  Music lessons are coming soon…. I love mixing classic looks with fun looks so pairing this cute monster button up with these awesome joggers just made sense!  He’s always running, jumping, and climbing so we need his clothes to be durable and functional.

As I said earlier, Jagger is headed to preschool and we are thrilled!  Since he’s doing his  speech therapy he’s been having more phrases.  I am so proud of him so my personal goal for Jagger is to  meet new friends and use his words more.  We call him the professor because he’s so serious and extremely analytical.

Boy moms know how much their boys loveeeeee trucks, so of course we went with the truck theme for Jagger.  My boys are absolutely obsessed with them, the joggers are so cute and I loved the yellow and blue details at the ankle.

Last but obviously not least, was baby Axel.  He will still be home chilling with Mommy and Daddy so his goals are to stay cute and keep hitting milestones.  He’s rocking his awesome onsie because well he’s AWESOME! We are so excited about the school year and looking forward to all of the memories to be made.  And thanks to Gymboree our kids remain stylish!  What are your kid’s goals this year?  Cheers to a happy school year!!!

DIY toddler style

Hey Momtourage!  I wanted to share a cool quick and easy way to take plain black shoes from basic to  fresh! I’m always excited to find a great deal, so when I was in Walmart I found some black vans inspired shoes for Jagger and they were less than $6!  Check out my tips to make some for your little one below:

Items needed:IMG_0618

  1. Bleach
  2. A spray bottle
  3. Black canvas shoes

After pouring the bleach in the empty spray bottle, simply spray the shoes lightly.  Be sure to spray in different locations so that you are able to have a cool splash pattern!

IMG_0619

Let the shoes sit for 1-2 mins to allow the bleach to set into the canvas

IMG_0620

Rinse the shoes with cold water and allow to air dry for 24hrs.

After the shoes dry you are ready to style them! We absolutely love the way they turned  and I will be making some for the rest of the #HWTH crew!  Until next time!
