While our youngest daughter headed off to kindergarten this week, it is still over 90 degrees F here in Florida, and we have months left of pool & beach time! My sweet little guy and I are enjoying our special time together, and these are just a few of our favorites for fun in the sun….year-round!


Loulou Lollipop Luxe Muslin Quilt Blanket

We all scream for ice cream! This extremely soft, luxe ice cream printed quilt blanket is a huge hit in our home…with both the 1 year old and the 5 year old! With a pastel sunny yellow trim and back, this blanket is bright, sunny and a must-have for little ones! Loulou Lollipop’s luxurious quilt is made of 4-layers of super soft rayon created from bamboo, which makes it gentle and soft on delicate skin. As if the blanket isn’t already soft enough, it gets softer with each wash! It is breathable, sustainable, durable, and machine washable. With quality being a top priority, Loulou Lollipop makes all of their adorable goods by hand.

Blue Pebble Whale

Make waves with this adorable fairtrade toy! Everything whale be alright when your little one has this soft rattle while playing on land or in the sand as we soak up the last of the summer sunshine! The soft toy can be submerged in water and is machine washable… and retains its’ shape after play or wash! Irresistibly cute, Pebble is the best in hand manufactured soft toys from community businesses in Bangladesh. We love that this business is helping women out of poverty and putting smiles on faces worldwide! All Pebble products are made by Hathay Bunano.

Its mission is to create fairly paid, good quality, flexible and local employment for rural women who are poor and often disadvantaged.

Babytime summer set

Babytime! Baby Safe Sun and Bug Collection

Here in Florida, sunshine and mosquitoes are year-round! It is a necessity to protect our children’s skin from harmful rays and irritating bugs the natural way! Babytime’s Sunny Sunscreen and Mighty Shield Bug Lotion will keep your child’s skin safe from nature’s elements without adding harmful chemicals. We love that the Mighty Shield Bug Lotion applies evenly and easily like lotion rather than a spray, which is much more effective! With broad spectrum SPF 35, the sunscreen isn’t greasy and is water resistant to 80 minutes. Plus it is enriched with green tea and aloe!
