Lullaby Paints {Review}

Lullaby Paints

Thatch Wall Paint

When we first learned we were expecting baby #4 we weren’t really sure what we were going to do about a nursery. If you would design one, just have baby in our room at first, move Josie in with Finley? We had a ton  of options to think about, and finally we decided to do a nursery, but also keep a small space in the same room for Josie. I certainly did not want to kick her out of her room and move her in with Finley where there wasn’t really any space for her right now and try to transition her to a big girl bed at the same time. I figured that would be way too much change on her and could definitely be way too difficult for all of us.

We decided to paint Josie’s room once we realized the bedding we chose for the new bub did not match the wall colors. So I turned to Lullaby Paints to find the perfect color. Lullaby paints are made from the finest ingredients available, and are 100% safe to use in a nursery. In fact they are so safe they include food grade safe ingredients. The vibrant and beautiful pigments are imported from Europe. And they also meet the highest environmental and safety standards.

Lullaby Paints sent us this beautiful paint to adorn the walls of the nursery. We chose the color Thatch and love it! It couldn’t have been  a more perfect match to the vintage airplane fabric we chose.

 Before Photos:


We removed and put up all new trim and closet doors.


I love the way the Nursery turned out, there are a few more photos I will share later once he is born, as his name will be revealed after he is born and we have a few wall décor items with his name. I also have a few little things I will be adding as well as new curtains. So stay tuned for more nursery photos!

Lullaby Paints was super easy to use and apply. The paints come in eco friendly packaging and they also offer all in one kits to make things easier on you!   Their customer service was also amazing and so helpful. I would definitely purchase from them to update other rooms in our house.

Stokke® Scoot™ {A Giveaway}

Stokke is one of my favorite companies for children’s furniture and baby gear. I love their Scandinavian style they offer and the quality is unbeatable.

The Stokke® Scoot™ is an urban compact stroller ready for the bustling city, traveling, narrow doorways and store aisles as well as city transit! It is easy to fold and easy to carry and also oh so beautiful! The scoot also comes in a an array of beautiful colors.  Stokke sent us the Scoot in the Black Melange and I couldn’t be happier with it’s performance and the beautiful greyish black color.

The Low down on the Stokke® Scoot™:

2 way rear and front facing seat
4 recline to upright positions
Suitable for café or high chair substitute.
Easy one hand folding.
Height adjustable handle.
Compact & easy to carry.
Stable footrest , easy step access for toddlers.
Superior seat ergonomics for compact category.
Extra roomy cargo basket.

I’m excited to use this Stroller with the new babe, but I also loved using it with Josephine. We ventured to the mall to do a little shopping and she actually stayed in it for the majority of the time, which is rare for her since she loves run and if generally pretty active no matter where we go. She must have been pretty comfy in it. I also was able to fit all my bags and then some in the roomy cargo basket. We were also sent the Soft bag, which we have yet to use, but since little guy should be here soon and we have snow already it will definitely be put to good use and probably sooner than later!

Holiday Gift Guide: Combi Usa Cosmo {Expecting Mama’s edition }

For the next couple of weeks I will be posting a few of my all time favorite products and gifts for the expecting mama! First up on that list is the Combi USA Cosmo Stroller.  

The Cosmo stroller is a great light weight stroller that is also great on the eye. This sleek stroller is perfect for the mama on the go,  easy to fold, pack and carry this stroller is a wonderful gift at a great and reasonable price! It is also compatible with the Combi Shuttle  car seat. The Cosmo also has a multi position seat and 3-5 point harness, fitting children of  a range of ages. 

We really love this stroller, It’s so nice for being out and about, downtown or in the mall. Easy to move around throughout stores and on the side walks.  The lower basket is also great and does fit a good amount of bags and what not. It is also super easy to clean and wipe down, cause we all know it won’t stay clean when you have a snacking toddler along for the ride!  

This is definitely a stroller that would be on my wish list for the holidays. Expecting a new baby really makes you research products but also expecting your 4th baby and  purchasing and using a ton of different products makes you really know what you need and want in products. The Combi Cosmo really does fit our needs as well as our wants! Check it and many other amazing products out at Combiusa.
