Remember I told you that I am a new “expert curator” at the online kids’ boutique Bumblebean? One of my favorite collections I’ve curated recently is Spring Fever which includes everything from spring jackets to t-shirts to sunglasses to glider bikes (and, my personal favorite, a balloon animal kit).  Prices are competitive, and, best of all, shipping is automatically free (no code needed).  To see any of the items below, visit my Spring Fever collection.

The Cutest Baby Sunhat

childrens-place-bear-straw-hatI must give credit where credit is due.  My own dad (who is not “a shopper” by any means…) spotted this adorable Bear Straw Hat at The Children’s Place when he and my kids went to buy a gift for our new baby cousin Eli. This is my favorite Children’s Place find in quite a while (and Eli’s parents absolutely loved it, too)! The hat is available in sizes 0-6mos, 6-12mos, or 12-18mos, for $12.95 at The Children’s Place.

An Easy Way to Make Rainbow Cupcakes


IMG_5488

Duff-Tie-Dye-Cake-MixThe kids and I made these rainbow cupcakes last week using Duff™-Tie-Dye-Cake-Mix. They were super easy–you just separate the batter into several small bowls for each color, add the included food coloring, mix, and then layer the colors in the cupcake holders one by one (just pour a bit of each color on top of the previous one–you don’t have to be super exact for it to turn out gorgeous!). One package of this mix costs just $2.99 and will make one 9″x13″ cake, two double-layer 8″ or 9” round cakes, or about a dozen cupcakes. Order it at Duff.com.

george-playdate-outfitWhile his Mum’s Tory Burch dress from the same occasion has already sold out, if you’ve got money to spare you can replicate everything in Prince George’s handsome playgroup outfit–Rachel Riley handsmocked sailboat dungarees ($129),Chelsea Clothing Company’s Milo Bodysuit (£14.99), and Early Days’ Alex Pre-Walkers (£24.99). But be sure to hurry. Moms everywhere are copying this look!

p.s. Thanks to Prince George Pieces for identifying the sources!  I, of course, am working on finding less expensive versions of this outfit…stay tuned.

Monogrammed Tortoise Cuff

tortoise-cuffI’ve mentioned the tortoise trend here before, and I’ve found some great tortoise fashion jewelry at the site Fornash.com (another find I made via Instagram). This monogrammed tortoise cuff is a trendy gift for any woman (keep it in mind for Mother’s Day…) and can be ordered in a plain version too. Buy it for $40 (and be sure to browse the other cool jewelry, too) at Fornash.

Pretty New Dresses at Tea Collection

Oooh, our affiliate Tea Collection has lots of especially pretty dresses this Spring in its Morrocan-inspired collection.  Here are two of my favorites:

Blooming Lily Shift Dress ($39, sizes 2 years to 12 years).  How sweet is this?  This lilac confection (also available in trendy lemon yellow) is 100% cotton and has blooming petals framing the neckline.

Nabila Embroidered Sparkle Dress ($59, sizes 6-12mos to 12 years).  I love the pretty embroidery, ruffled sleeves, and matching bloomers (for infant sizes only) in this linen/cotton set.
