Tea Announces “Citizen Blue” Collection (Plus Gift with Purchase)

Tea is excited to announce a new semi-annual collection you will love — Citizen Blue! Truly globally-inspired, the Citizen Blue collection revisits heritage Tea silhouettes and re-imagines favorite prints from places already visited while also celebrating the in-between places—the magical spots Tea stops at along the way to somewhere else. Grounded in rich indigo hues, the Citizen Blue collection is a new stylish assortment from not one place, but many, because sometimes the journey is the destination.

As part of the Citizen Blue debut, Tea is offering a free gift with purchase of $100 or more! Starting today (12/8), you can get an exclusive Tatcha Indigo Skincare Travel Set, while supplies last. Tatcha’s Indigo skincare line is inspired by Japanese samurai who, centuries ago, discovered that using natural indigo for soothing benefits protects, nourishes and replenishes skin. The partnership offers the opportunity for Mom to get a globally-inspired gift for herself too when shopping for her little citizen.

I like that you can pick individual items or a set. These were some of my favorites. Pick your destination:

They come in red and white and blue and white, for babies, kids, women and men, from size 3-6 months to adult XL. Some sizes come with sleeve and pant length options.

Aby’s Kids Christmas Dress Review and Giveaway!

Aby Kids Collage

When I was visiting family in Miami, Florida earlier this year, we decided to pop in to a little restaurant. We ended up deciding to meet up with someone at a different place and were heading back out when a woman stopped us. She introduced herself and told me that she had a clothing company and would I allow my older daughter to model some of her designs. I thanked her, but told her we were unfortunately at the end of our visit. She then told me that she could send some up to us in Ohio so we exchanged some contact information.

Fast forward a few months and not only did she send me two gorgeous Girls Christmas Dresses in Silk and Tulle, but she wanted to let one of you lucky readers win one of these dresses plus another one of you to win a pair of adorable pajamas.

It is my pleasure to introduce you to a fabulous, family owned clothing company, Aby’s Kids. Based out of Miami, Florida, the designer, Miriam Pozo, has created some wonderful designs for kids, men and women. Most of the clothing is made from linen and they feature many guayabera designs for the whole family. Welcome to a little of my Cuban American heritage – the guayabera is a very popular shirt for men in tropic regions and eventually adopted for women and children, too.

For girls, whether you are looking for a flower girl dress, special occasion dress, or a perfect dress for the annual Christmas card photo, you can’t go wrong with a stunning satin dress from Aby’s Kids. The fit on both of the dresses we received was perfect. They are simple yet elegant with special attention to details like fabric covered buttons. I liked that the bow on the dress could by tied on the front or back. They were easy to get on and off and both girls loved prancing around in them. Well, except for when Aubrey dropped an ornament and she couldn’t see it because the poofiness blocked her view of it. The fabrics used felt amazing and they look very well put together.

Interchangable Headband for Hair Bows

I’m a genius! I found a way to put all the cute hair bows back into rotation. My one year old won’t keep a headband or bow on for 1 second. My three year old only likes regular headbands. If you ask her if she wants a “clippie” bow she’ll she yes but just wants to hold it, not wear it.

I thought about putting some on headbands since she loves the ones she has from Luna Blue’s but then I would end up with 100 headbands. I had a light bulb moment.

2014_09_23_6437

I couldn’t find just a single black fabric covered headband so I took a bow off an inexpensive store bought bow off of this one. Yes, there is still some glue stuck to it, but you don’t see it when there is a bow attached. I just hot glued on a little loop of ribbon. Make it just loose enough that you can get the bottom of an alligator clip in but it will stay in place.

2014_09_23_6440

That’s it! You can interchange any bow onto a headband. My daughter is thrilled because she can pick any bow. My little one is modeling below since the big one was taking a nap.

FabKids August 2014

I have to admit I did a little happy dance when I find out I was going to get a preview of something from the August 2014 collection of FabKids clothing. I did another little happy dance when I realized it was this funky cool dress that is completely on trend. Just another perk of being a FabMom Brand Ambassador.

2014_07_24_5781

Like so many other FabKids pieces, the Ikat Dress, features some nice details like a hot pink zipper on the back and darting in the bodice. I believe the pattern is based off of ikat, an Indonesian dyeing technique used to pattern textiles, and looks like abstract hearts. This “tribal” type look is right up my alley, as far as fashion goes, and my daughter asked to wear it the second she spotted it.

Paired with a pop a color, like these lime green FabKids Fab Soft Leggings, it is going to be a great look for fall and even into winter with some boots. The fabric is a little on the thick side so I think it will great for when the weather starts to cool down. Since my daughter is a little petite, I prefer the cuts that are more fitted on her but I think this style would be flattering on a variety of body shapes.

This dress was a size up on my daughter and a little large for her at this time but should be a better fit as the weather cools down. If you are looking to wear the dress sooner rather than later, I’d order the exact size of your little girl.

Check out all the outfits FabKids has to offer and your first outfit is just $15 plus free shipping! They have sales and specials throughout the year (in fact I just bought 3 dresses for $20 including shipping). I am personally looking forward to seeing the fall pants outfits for girls since my daughter has been enjoying the FabKids pants she already has. Don’t forget to check out their selection of shoes, too.

A little trivia for you! Do you know where the cash register was invented? I’ll give you a hint; it’s where the pop top can, carbonless copy paper, and the airplane where invented. The were all invented right here in Dayton, Ohio! The Riverscape area in downtown Dayton has some fun sculptures commemorating some of them like this cash register and a six pack of pop top cans. Turns out Dayton has had more inventions per capita than any city in the United States.
