I’m super excited to share SoCozy haircare products today! SoCozy specially developed salon-quality formulas that boast multi-functional use, parents now have a go-to that gets the job done quickly with great results. One of my favorite aspects is how good the products smell. You know how you can smell the salon quality? Or maybe that’s just me and I’m crazy, but I think I can.

The SoCozy line of products created by Cozy Friedman, the woman who founded the first children’s hair salons in New York City. Before buzzwords like parabens and phthalates, Cozy adopted a higher standard for her products that relies on quality and integrity, not chemicals and preservatives.

Ruby has been in need of a haircut, so our SoCozy products arrived at a perfect time. SoCozy products are non-toxic and made without parabens, sulfates, phthalates, synthetic color, propylene glycol, gluten, wheat or nuts. SoCozy brand values are: “So Smart – Genius is more like it. We believe knowledge is power, which is why education is at our core – the pulse of our brand. Advice, solutions, tips, trends – we serve as an extensive resource for moms, kids, stylists and salon owners. So Safe – No nasties in here; just good, clean, honest formulations with ingredients that perform at the highest level. Safe and effective – and completely non-toxic – it’s great hair minus the harsh chemicals. So Easy – Because being a parent isn’t always easy, we make haircare that is: simple, fun, multi-functional products that streamline tub time, as well as solutions targeting specific hair concerns to make styling a snap. So Cool – Take a strand. Through our products, website, social channels and unique collaborations, we encourage and support individuality. All kids, any hair type – we make it our mission to build confidence and inspire originality. Being you is our idea of cool.”

SoCozy is available at Target and offers a wide variety of haircare products. My personal favorite is the SoCozy Cinch Detangler + Leave-In Conditioner. Ruby loves it too, because she has the most sensitive head I’ve ever experienced. She might play-fight karate with her brother for hours, but the second you ask to hold a comb to her head…forget about it.

For the love of shoes.

Posted by Lookie Boo in Jude Dylan, Sponsors

 You know when kids get clothes at a birthday party and they have to hide their disappointment and begrudgingly say thank you before moving on to the next package in hopes it contains anything but more clothes? Jude isn’t that kid. He holds the item up and screams with joy just like he does for toys. I’ve always loved this about him, he appreciates everything he receives. So when I told Jude he was going to get to pick out his own pair of new shoes and we ventured into Famous Footwear, he was pretty pumped.

IMG_2402

 A sweet, extremely helpful sales person offered to measure Jude’s feet and I obliged because, you know, its been a week since we measured his feet so they probably grew two sizes. Wide eyed, he ran around the store, looking at all of the options, holding them up and shouting, “Look Mom!” It was pretty cute. In the end, he chose Chuck Taylor All Star Easy Slip High Top Sneakers in white/navy.

IMG_2616

 Super cute, right?! He’s got pretty good taste, not bias. My favorite thing about these shoes is that the sides have Velcro, so even though they are high tops, they are super easy to slide on and off. Jude gets easily frustrated with things he “can’t do” by himself, so I like that he is able to navigate these on his own. It makes him feel proud and empowered that he can dress himself from head to toe.

She thought it was so funny to hold my coffee and pretend to be me. She wasn’t wrong.
 

If you’re an avid (read: obsessed) online-deal-shopper like I am, you will fully appreciate this. Now that I’m ordering shoes for three children, it’s even harder to keep track of who is wearing what size. My kids never stop growing and they’re always abusing or losing their shoes. So I feel like I’m always shopping for someone’s newest pair of shoes (thus the need for deals).

Squatchi® is shaped like the typical shoe sizer found in every department store, but made from a lightweight, unbreakable material that’s easy to use and transport. Each one features measurement lines that range from size 2 toddler to 5 youth and is ideal for use with children ages 1-11. To measure, simply align their heel against the curved end and draw a line just above the longest toe.

Check out Squatchi online.

Lookie Boo + Minted

Hi friends! If you are not familiar with Minted yet, I’m sorry in advance…because you’re going to want to buy all the things. Minted is a design marketplace. They source creative content from a global community of independent artists, then sell the best content in the form of art, home décor, and stationery, directly to consumers.

If you’re a visual learner like I am.

Awesome, right?! I recently started working on Ozzy’s “nursery nook” in our master bedroom (um, California is expensive and our house is small) and the search for the perfect wall print has begun.

Ozzy James Nursery Nook Black White Inspiration Board Lookie Boo
Black/white/grey/pops of blue, you get the idea. After HOURS of meticulous obsession, I was able to design four that I really love. Minted allows you to completely personalize and preview as you shop, which is freaking cool if you’re as type A as I am about this kind of thing. Without further adieu (or rambling), here are my top four favorites…Help me pick??

Ruby, bless her, is totally my child that kicks off all of her blankets then wakes up crying that she is cold. Not a good time at 3am. Which is why I was very excited to learn of baby deedee‘s Sleep products, made for infants & toddlers. Ruby is wearing the Sleep Kicker above, perfect for her age (3-4).

Winner of the Red Tricycle and Creative Child Awards, baby deedee wearable blankets will keep your baby warm and cozy. The sleep nest is quilted for cooler weather and our sleep nest lite is the perfect summer baby sleeping bag. Easy on and off! Baby deedee’s shoulder snap and over-sized reverse zipper make it so easy to place your sleeping baby in the sleep nest, even while asleep.
