Guilty pleasures are things that you love to do, but don’t love sharing with other people. We all have them! Whether they be listening to a certain type of music, wearing a particular item of clothing while in the comfort of your own home, or sneaking a scoop of peanut butter on a spoon every now and then. One of my many guilty pleasures is SHOPPING! I love shopping! I shop when I’m happy and celebrating a success, I shop when I’m sad and looking for a pick me up, and I shop with the kids when I’m bored and need to get out of the house. Almost any time is a good time to go shopping! I love the thrill of the find, the acquisition of something new and the hunt for a bargain.
Since the birth my daughter, my shopping lust has increased! I love dressing her up in fancy dresses and attempting to place “pretties” in her hair. After 5 years of boys clothing, I am excited to cross to the OTHER side of the aisle and experience the frills, the lace and the bows! It is a whole different world! Instead of 3 styles of shirts in 5 colours, like the boys clothing selections, girls have an endless array options! From skirts to pants to dresses to skorts, the list just goes on and on! Trying to be the ‘cool’ mom, I’m often on the internet searching for the latest children’s styles. Not only does it provide me with more options, but it allows me compare prices and styles in the comfort of my own home! On one of my many online shopping adventures, I came across Sweet Kids Boutique and I had to share!
Sweet Kids Boutique is an amazing online boutique that carries products from America’s leading Children’s apparel manufacturing companies! It is one of the only companies like it in DURHAM! Sweet Kids Boutique was founded by Kelly and Fran, sister-in-laws that are fortunate enough to call each other friends for the past 13 years. After the birth of their children (Kelly has Ethan 2 ½, and Charlotte 1, Fran has Isabella 1 ), both Moms were looking for a way to support their family, while staying home with their kids. The most logical solution lead to the birth of Sweet Kids Boutique and a new business relationship. The products offered by Sweet Kids Boutique range from quality, handcrafted hairbands and accessories, trusted retailers for trusted RuffleButts and RuggedButts, Baby Aspen, Mud Pie Baby and more! Their aim to to bring unique, quality, products for babies, infants, toddlers, little girls and boys.
I had the ability to test out some of their products on my children. From my first interaction with Sweet Kids Boutique, I was very impressed. I found them to be helpful, professional, and very friendly. It was easy to converse with them and I was eager to explore their products. My sample box contained a wide range of products from hairbands to suspenders to ties to leggings. I feel like I got a good taste of the vast variety of products they offer. Although the items I received were from several different companies, you could see that they all maintained quality and individuality. My favourite items by far where their hair pieces.
The hair bands were sturdy and well constructed. Small pieces were well fastened to prevent breakage from prying baby hands.
The barrettes were breath taking! They included different styles, designs and materials, sure to please everyone’s taste! DD1 liked the yellow barrette the best. She chose it out of the box right away and it was the only barrette that she left alone in her hair for longer than 5 minutes!
I love ties! When my boys were little, I would add a tie to every outfit! It was my way of dressing them up! DS5 loved modeling the tie we got from Sweet Kids Boutique! I love that it was adjustable and fastened with Velcro. This safety feature reassures me that boys can being boys and still stay safe!
With spring in the air and the sun making it’s presence, everyone needs stylish sunglasses to protect their eyes!
This product is amazing! DD1 is just beginning to walk and run, as a result she is constantly slipping and falling. I try to keep her in shoes or bare feet so she doesn’t slip on our hardwood floors. When she is wearing a dress (which she does often,) this is a difficult feat. With leggings, she can still wear her dress, keep her legs warm, and still have the traction from bare feet!
