an objective review of something we own
I bought these shoes in May and wore them right out of the store. Truthfully I had been touring San Diego in heels and could not go one step further without assistance. I have barely taken them off since and plan to wear them into fall with some neon green tights. Kidding. Maybe… I have always loved Birkenstocks but having them available in neon pink and orange doubled their value. All the comfort with an eighties vibe. Plus the compliments make me feel like I invented them myself. They go with everything and I swear that the colour makes my feet look tan. To be perfectly honest, the colour also makes them easy to find when I am rushing out the door.
I do a lot of outdoor exercising and in the summer by about minute five I am a hot, sweaty, red-faced mess. That’s why I’m seriously considering getting the LUNATEC Aquabot. It’s a cap that can be put onto a water bottle turning it into a personal water mister. It can also be used as a stealth water gun so bonus points for being able to soak my kids without them even knowing I have the ability to do it.
It’s a night light! It’s a flashlight! No - It’s a bedtime blessing! I bought the Skip Hop Zoo Take-Along Nightlight for my three-year old daughter, in the hopes that she would stop asking to sleep with all of the lights on. Every. Single. Light. Every single night.
Short story, here: she slept soundly with the night light in her arms on the very first try.
I’ve fallen in love with Skip Hop products, over-and-over, over four years and two kids. Their core philosophy of “must-haves made better” rings true in this night light (from the soft-edged, chord-free design, to the 30-minute auto-off), as it does in all of their products. They really did make the must-have of a child’s night light so much better.
My second daughter has now fallen for this sweet bedtime buddy – just the right size for her tiny hands. Needless to say, I know what she’s getting for her birthday.
