Jessie Steele Aprons


I think it’s about time to bring fun and flirty back to kitchen, don’t you think? If you do agree with me,  we can make that happen with Jessie Steele’s totally retro and chic vintage inspired aprons.

I love my Jessie Steele Retro Cherries Apron and am really looking forward to hosting some great get-togethers wearing it this year! My husband likes my apron just as much as I and he comments that it’s very flattering. I also think it’s brings back a certain femininity of which I miss so much this day and age.

These wonderful aprons which are created and designed in house are certainly in my opinion the most flattering hostess aprons out there! They have a huge array of patterns and styles to choose from. I’m sure something will catch your eye. They are machine washable, come in one size that fits most (in child and adult) and would make a charming gift in my opinion.

Jessie Steele also offers a lovely line of matching pot holders, mitts, and tea towels.  They even have brand new line of Aprons for the Salon professional. Check them out over at Jessie Steele’s .

Bath Luve


I would like to shed some love on the Bath Luve today.  I know you are probably asking, What is Bath Luve?

Well, Bath Luve was created by a mom just like you and me whom hated to see her child quiver and cry because he was cold during his baths! Trust me, I can totally relate to this in a huge way. Well Amy, that’s the founders name, decided that she was going to do something about it a created a wonderful product that would comfort babies during bath time.

The Bath Luve was invented and basically, it’s a 100% percent cotton drape that you put into the water and then place over your baby’s shoulders and the rest of their body. This keeps your baby warm, calm, and happy during bath time!

I was able to review the adorable duck design of which was great because our whole bathroom in themed in rubber duckies. My little one at nine months loved the Bath Luve and just kept smiling at it. I only wished that I had this sooner. I remember my daughter freezing cold, lips shivering, and bawling when I gave her baths when she was a lot younger.

The Bath Luve typically is ideal for babies up to six months of age, as your baby is probably still using a baby tub and not nearly as mobile as my nine month old whom is already walking. When your baby is older, you can use it as a fun cape in the tub. It also makes for great photos if you want to keep all those private parts private while sharing bath photos with friends and family.

I’m going to recommend this to all new mom’s who may not know about the Bath Luve because I just think it’s incredibly ingenious and would make bath time more enjoyable for them and their babies.

You can purchase the Bath Luve three different designs a duck, frog, and a fish . The product retails for $6-10 is available at Kohl’s, Wal-Mart,  Amazon, as well as the One Step Ahead catalog. It is also currently available online from their website too.
