SoCozy Hush

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of SoCozy. All opinions are my own and not edited by the sponsor.

I was so excited to walk into Target and find the newest line of products by SoCozy, Hush. The Hush line is formulated specifically for your littles with a sensitive scalp and skin! If you aren’t familiar with SoCozy, let me introduce you.

If you bottle over 22 years of experience and expertise about kids’ hair, you’ve got 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. Today, that standard is a promise: “no nasties—ever,” and that means peace of mind.

SoCozy is So Smart, So Safe, So Easy and So Cool.

So Smart: Genius is more like it. SoCozy believes knowledge is power, which is why education is at its core—the pulse of the brand—so you’ll always find the latest advice, solutions, tips, and trends.

So Safe: No nasties in here; just good, clean, honest formulations with ingredients that perform at the highest level. SoCozy is always safe and effective, and completely non-toxic.

So Easy: Because being a parent isn’t always easy, SoCozy makes hair care that is. These simple, fun, multi-functional products streamline tub time to make styling a snap.

So Cool: Take a strand. SoCozy encourages and supports individuality. For all kids and any hair type—SoCozy’s mission is to build confidence and inspire originality.

Ruby has been the perfect test subject for each of these new products. Recently, she has decided to grow her hair out and as her hair has grown, so has her scalp sensitivity. So a huge thank you to SoCozy for addressing our sensitive kid’s scalp needs!

The Hush 2in1 Soothing Shampoo and Conditioner is love at first smell. It’s a Gentle purifying cleanser, specially formulated with sensitive skin and scalp in mind. Ru is very picky about her scents, but approves of SoCozy. Plus the bottle comes with a soft bristled brush to help pick up dirt and flakes of dead skin, eww, and it leaves Ru’s head and hair looking healthy and smelling amazing.

The Hush Sensitive Scalp Serum Balancing Treatment is a non-greasy, leave-in formula that helps calm an irritated scalp, working to stop itch and reduce dry flakes. The Serum works like a charm, I just rubbed a small amount into Ru’s scalp and it has drastically helped her dandruff situation.  Added bonus for new moms, Hush Sensitive Scalp Serum is even great for Cradle Cap! Truth be told my husband has even used it for the sensitive skin under his beard with awesome results too!

Hush Sensitive Detangler Ultra-Gentle Leave-In was the product I looked forward to the most. The only thing worse than trying to comb out your own tangled mess is trying to comb out your over emotional-trying to grow her hair out-kindergartner’s tangled mess. Ever feel like ripping your own hair out trying to comb your child’s? Me too! Now thanks to SoCozy, Ru and I can comb in peace. A few sprays on her damp hair and the comb glides through like a hot knife through butter. Thank you SoCozy, you are truly glorious.
The Hush Sensitive Styling Foam  is a Lightweight mousse that provides natural-looking hold without disrupting the balance of a sensitive scalp. This mousse provides the perfect finishing touches for your sensitive scalped little, helping reduce frizz and hard to tame hair all day. Just use a couple pumps,  style as normal,  and you are good to go! SoCozy is available at Target and offers a wide variety of haircare products.

Smartbuy Glasses 

It shouldn’t come as a surprise to you that I am a little bit obsessed with designer eyewear.  Glasses, sunglasses, it really doesn’t matter, I LOVE THEM ALL! My little fashionista Ruby has followed in my footsteps and wants all my eyewear for herself too.  Good thing SmartBuyGlasses has a style for everyone in the family, free shipping, 100 day Returns, and 14 day best price guarantee. Even better, for every pair of glasses you buy SmartBuyGlasses gives a pair to someone in need with their Buy One, Give One Charity.

My new Salvatore Ferragamos!

The glasses Ruby picked out are these adorable glasses by Kenzo. Ruby loved that she received a perfect pair of glasses, AND was able to gift a pair to a child in need.

Happy 2nd Birthday Ozzybear!

A special thank you to Kasmira Kit for taking these fabulous family photos for us. http://www.kasmirakit.com/photography

I can’t believe my “last baby” (I have my tubes tied) is turning TWO. Time can be such an asshole! He has been going through a lot, mainly struggling to find his words. He’s started Speech Therapy and will soon begin Occupational Therapy and an evaluation with a Psychologist – just like his big brother Jude once did. We are so proud of our little buddy and I can’t wait to see how well he does with this help in 2017.

Each of my children teach me something new about myself each day that passes. A different lesson. A different trial of my patience and time management. Ozzy brings sunshine into our lives as bright as his hair. He loves to make us laugh. He loves to play pranks on me, play peek-a-boo and chase. He is obsessed with Trotro, Mickey Mouse, Dinosaurs, Cars, bubbles, playing outside and most importantly chasing the Bigs.

When Jude & Ruby are away at school, he often walks around the house yelling (just like Mama) “JUUUU!” and “RUUUUU!” hoping they are simply playing a prolonged game of hide and seek with him. When it’s time to go pick them up he claps his hands with excitement and sometimes jumps.

Last Baby is my first baby to really care about his pacifier and have comfort blankies. People say he looks just like Michael but when he’s making smug little sassy faces, I think he looks just like me.

My favorite pastime is forcing him to sit on my lap and torturing him with kisses and hugs. He pretends he hates it then as soon as I stop he asks for more. He’s just funny like that.  He is so brave – possibly too much so. He climbs the highest slide at the park just like all the big kids with a devilish grin of determination. He thinks it’s SO funny to open and close my bedroom door, poking his sweet little face in and out of the door frame. I could go on forever with all the ways this baby bring me joy. His smile makes my heart skip a beat.

We hadn’t really had a professional family photo shoot of the five of us since Ozzybear was born, so I was super thankful for these gorgeous images from Kasmira Kit. Below are some of our favorites.

Ozzy’s First Christmas Party! Well Beginnings Live!

Thank you Walgreens & Well BeginningsTM  for sponsoring this post and inviting us to your fabulous party!

My Christmas tree is already up. Yes, I’m one of those people. Fall is my favorite time of year and Christmas is one of my absolute favorite days of the year! I was so excited and honored that Ozzybear and I were invited to the Walgreens Well Beginnings Live Event last week! It was so beautiful and well done I wanted to rush home and decorate my house immediately.

See what I mean? So cute! It was Ozzy’s first Christmas party so I figured it was only right he get cookies and chocolate. I like living carb-vicariously.

Next, I checked out the Well Beginnings diapers and wipes! I noted immediately that the Well Beginnings diapers are super high quality. In fact, Good Housekeeping tested Well Beginnings as being more absorbent than Huggies. Also, they are very competitively priced, Well Beginnings are a value alternative to big brands. And, now they have a new everyday low price of $6.99 for a package of diapers. Save your money for more important things for your baby! Like Santa PJS and more Christmas party decor!

Whether it’s your baby’s first Christmas party or first Thanksgiving, (Walgreens exclusive) Well BeginningsTM  knows it’s all about keeping your baby happy and healthy. That’s why they have researched the ingredients in their baby products to ensure each meets the highest quality standards. From premium-quality diapers to clinically tested, hypoallergenic baby shampoo and wipes, Well BeginningsTM essential baby care items have you covered.
