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.
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…
Finding the right stroller can be difficult. There are so many strollers out there that gear towards different lifestyles for families… The all-terrain, travel systems, full-size, urban city, jogging, umbrella, travel, etc. It always seems endless! Living in Honolulu, we wanted a stroller that was perfect for every day urban living that we could use for even traveling. We needed it to be lightweight, compact, reclined with a foot rest and large enough basket to store things.(umbrella stroller storage baskets are never big enough) After tons of research, we found one that was great for our lifestyle.
With Mother’s Day coming up and experiencing my first as a new mommy, I wanted to share things that I’ve learned so far. Motherhood is a life changing experience. There is no book or class that could have prepared me for this role. Everything has been a trial and error and every day I’m learning how to become a better mother. We’ve really developed a great routine with Kaia and follow it the best we can. It’s been a great 7 months and wanted to share 10 things that I have learned as a new mom:
