    PINK COLONY | BEST PREPPY STORE FOR MOMMY AND ME

    For resort destinations like this, I love a good resort wear piece for both Kaia and I, and even better if it’s a one-stop shop for mommy! When it comes to shopping, I love online shopping vs. in-store shopping. Shopping with a toddler is never fun for me and I hardly get the time to do it alone. Pink Colony has the largest selection of Lilly Pulitzer in the state of Vermont (Stowe, VT), but they also have an online store, which is amazing. You can find brands like Lilly, Hunter Boots, Jack Rogers, etc. for both women and children.

    TRAVEL DIARIES: FAIRMONT KEA LANI WAILEA

    TRAVEL DIARIES: FAIRMONT KEA LANI WAILEA

    We stayed at Fairmont Kea Lani on Maui last month and loved our little island getaway. The hotel is gorgeous with an oceanfront location and super kid-friendly. Upon our arrival, we were greeted with the warm, aloha hospitality that Hawaii is known for and each given a lei. The one thing that made the trip so special was the amazing service and staff at Fairmont Kea Lani. When we checked-in, they knew we had a toddler and gave Kaia a little whale stuffed animal. She was beaming from side-to-side! I’d say that was a good start to our vacation…

    HOW TO TRAVEL WITH A TODDLER FROM HONOLULU TO KYOTO

    Can you believe the holidays are here!? Time is flying by and I wish it would slow down a bit. We just got back from Japan a few weeks ago and it was seriously one of our best trips! Traveling with a toddler isn’t always the easiest, especially an international trip! We were so afraid because of how long the flight was, but thank goodness she was so well behaved and all the activities I brought kept her busy. (I have to thank Melissa & Doug removable sticker books and their water and color pads) We found an unreal deal to Japan on Air Asia for $298 RT! Yes, you heard that right.

    TRAVEL TECHNIQUES WITH SPYDER

    TRAVEL TECHNIQUES WITH SPYDER

    Happy Aloha Friday everyone!! The other day I did a special blog post over on Spyder’s website and just wanted to share a tid bit from it. We are taking our first international trip to Tokyo with Kaia in a few months and I shared why it’s important to travel with her and some rules we make as a family when it comes to traveling. We’ve been traveling with her since she was two months old, but never farther than Utah, so I’m anxious to see how this trip will go, mainly just the flight! I’ve already ordered some great toddler toys for the airplane that I hope will keep her occupied till we absolutely need to break out the iPad. (If you recommend any toys great for long flights, please comment on this post or e-mail me. Your tips are greatly appreciated).
