Pink Elephant – Organic Fashions for Everyday

When you think children’s fashion what comes to mind?

For me is quality, modern styles and wearable.



So often I will find a beautiful dress or fun top for my daughter, but the material is scratchy or not cut to fit her body. Our kids are children, and should dress as such, not a teen. However, our kids have exposure to high end fashions. Shows like Barbie’s Dream house, Fancy Nancy and loads of other Disney programs show our children young girls and teen’s wearing hip/top end brands.  I want my daughter to look like a 5 year old, not a 15 year old. However, I do want her to look hip and in style – this is where Pink Elephant Organics steps in.


Now that my 5 year old is starting Kindergarten she is very particular about what she wears. I cannot just give her an outfit to wear, she needs to be part of the buying and trying process. When I showed her the website for Pink Elephant Organics she mentally did a backflip with excitement. These are the styles she has been longing to wear, and I was thrilled to see they are affordable and made to fit a tiny frame. 


Whenever my children put on new clothing I almost want to cringe – waiting to her the famous lines like “Its too itchy” “The arms dont feel good” “Its going up my back”….and the sad truth of low quality clothing goes on and on.  With Pink Elephant Organics, as my daughter tried on and wore each outfit she was smiling. She begs to wear these outfits now and has requested the brand now by name.


you want high-quality, comfortable clothing for your kids. That’s what we provide. The best part is our comfort comes with a fashionable, organic twist. – Pink Elephant Website

Irresistible ikiki Shoes

Transition is pretty much happening everyday when you have little ones. Weather is changing, milestones are being hit, likes/dislikes are developing, and in my extended family, babies are always being born.

It’s hard to keep up.

So when fall weather hit out of no where, I realized I was in a pinch for new kid shoes. We needed to transition out of easy slip on sandals back to socks and sneakers.

As a mother of two, sneakers are my worst nightmare.

Thats four pairs of socks, four wrestling matches to squeeze feet in shoes, and four races to tie shoes before the feet run away.

My daughter is transitioning into walking so this fall I knew she would need a good pair of solid walking shoes. While my son is transitioning into an opinionated “three-anger” and pretty much controls what he wears and when he wears it.

So with fall rolling in I was scared leaving the house was going to start taking 3 hours.

Then I found ikiki shoes!

Who is ikiki Shoes?

A dad with growing kids came up with ikiki shoes in 2009. He was actually an engineer looking for shoes that were healthy and fun for kids, and not just shrunken adult shoes. He understood kid feet are in the most important developmental stage of life, and therefore needed the correct support and design. ikiki has reimagined kid’s shoes and has used the best materials to make their products breathable, comfortable, and fun.

Squeaky Shoes?

Before you freak out, please promise to read on. ikiki shoes have built in squeakers.

While living in China, I saw kids wearing squeaker shoes daily. At first I didn’t get it. Why would you want to hear that all day?

Then I saw it in action.

New walkers smiling from ear to ear as they heard the squeaking. It actually is a genius educational tool. It teaches kids cause and effect which is big milestone for littles.  The squeak is also providing a multi sensory activity for walkers; feeling feet walk while hearing squeaking in unison. I don’t think I’ve every seen my daughter smile so big than when she first wore her ikiki’s. As I held her hands and she jumped, the squeaking brought giggles and entertainment.

It also provides a safety measure. I remember seeing a mom turn around to talk to her friend and her daughter taking off. Immediately the mother heard the quickening of squeaks and turned around to chase her little one back to safety. These shoes are great for in stores and parks when you are trying to multitask. Rather than looking for groceries and watching kids, you can actually look at what you are buying while listening to your child’s actions.

 Adjustable Squeaker

Like I said, squeaker shoes are no new invention. However, ikiki shoes are built with a patent-pending adjustable squeaker design. With a simple flip of a switch you, or your child, can turn the squeaks off. So when heading to the library or movie theater, or you just need a bit of quiet, ikiki shoes can be silenced.

I liked that it was simple to turn the squeaks on and off. My 2.5 year old son figured it out within minutes of wearing his new shoes. He established his own set of rules of when he wanted the squeaks on and off. When he’s jumping and “working out” he sits down and turns those puppies on and has a wonderful squeaking time. During his imaginative play time or when grandpa’s around he chooses to keep them off. I liked that during this transition of needing control, my son has something he is in control of.

As for my newly walking daughter, we just leave her ikiki’s on because what is cuter than a tottering baby?

A tottering baby laughing at herself squeaking.

Shoe Tech

As I said before, ikiki shoes were engineered around children’s feet.

The soles are very light weight and soft, making them flexible and comfortable. The rubber bottoms protect their little feet while also allowing children to feel the ground; helping to develop balance and stability. Each sole has a different pop of color, making it easier to match the correct foot to the correct shoe.

The website provides a wonderful printable sizing guide. Included is detailed directions, an accuracy check, and scale. It was simple and quick to measure my kids’ feet and the shoes ended up being very true to size.

Kids’ Foot Sizing Chart

The actual materials making up ikiki shoes are breathable and durable. The unique high top design offers padded support for little ankles without hugging too tight. The insides are smooth making slipping on shoes a breeze, while the outsides provides extra protection for toes and heels.

My son is a wild child always looking for adventure. These shoes have held up not just through every day use but also scooter riding, playing sports, and adventuring by our local park’s creek. While reading through some ikiki reviews, I read one consumer’s fear of the shoes being too flimsy for outside. ikiki actually encouraged her to try the shoes for outside play and offered another pair if they got ruined.

The truth is, healthy kid shoes should feel light weight and flexible. ikiki has mastered just that by engineering high quality developmentally appropriate shoes for your kids’ growing feet.

EASY to put on

My favorite feature of ikiki shoes is how easy they are. These are the first shoes my son has ever independently put on!

A serious miracle!

The backs have large easy pull on loops which can actually be used. These are far from the normal wimpy loops that slip right out of your fingers.

The best part is the wide opening velcro which provides plenty of wiggle room to pop feet in. Since velcro can be adjusted, you can still make the roomy shoes tight enough for safe walking.

Appealing Characters 

ikiki didn’t just design shoes for the different needs of adolescent feet, they also created unique styles to accentuate the personality of your little ones. ikiki shoes are visually appealing with bright colors and friendly characters. Each pair doubles as a fun character friend that is as unique as your child. Their website includes bios for each character helping your little one choose his or her ikikis.

For the first time I let my son choose his own shoes. It was a much debated processes as we went through and read about each character. He eventually decided on Prince Kairu, a competitive frog working towards being the first amphibious Olympic swimmer. He loved the medal Kairu had won in his bio picture and the fact he could help him jump to victory.

For me it was a struggle to narrow it down but I finally chose Patty Potamus for my daughter, a dancing hippo ballerina that has a taste for finer things. Not to mention, we loved they were glittery and matched her favorite hippo toy.


Thanks to our ikiki shoes leaving the house this fall is going to be quick and simple. We finally have shoes that are made for developing walking feet while also appeasing our independent free spirited child.

Finn & Emma – Organic Clothing for Children



Children need quality clothing. While kids grown like weeds, they too need comfort and this really counts when it comes to a good night of sleep. My children are not the best sleepers…okay they stink at sleeping. I have learned after years of fighting with them at bedtime is that if they are comfortable, really truley comfortable, they are able to fall asleep much faster. Being in pajamas that are soft and don’t ‘rub they wrong way’ is way more meaningful than you may realize.

We have tried more brands and styles than you can shake a stick at. While we have found some that we love, we didn’t know such comfort until we used Finn & Emma. I love organic clothing for a ton of reasons. Primarily because it’s safer for my children due to there not being chemicals or pesticides in the materials used. It is way better for the environment and our planet as a whole. Finn & Emma boast of a “buttery soft” material and I think that is a perfect description. When you see the clothing in the package you can tell it looks soft. When you touch it you quickly fall in love. If they made adults sizes, I would totally buy a pair!

Finn + Emma®’s garments are made with buttery soft, G.O.T.S. certified organic cotton and non-toxic, eco-friendly dyes. Garment snaps are lead/nickel free and feature real coconut inserts. Our garments have a generous fit—allowing them to be worn for longer—and accommodate cloth as well as disposable diapers.

As  a parent who cloth diapers, I can say that these pajama’s are super for fluff butts! So many times the pants on the pajamas of my son, who wears cloth diapers, give him the old fashion ‘plumbers crack’ – this is where the pants fall down and show the butt crack region. While I love to see my little fluff butts diapers, we don’t need clothing that won’t fit around his butt and hips properly. The ways the pants are cut and sewn together gives them a fit that stretches yet holds in all the perfect places. This is also one of the reasons why these pajamas make bedtime that much easier. Who needs pants that keep falling and moving around while you are just about to find the ‘right’ position to fall asleep in?

Finn & Emma are G.O.T.S. certified. “To be G.O.T.S. certified, textile products must contain a minimum of 95% organic fibers. All inks, dyes and process chemicals used in manufacture must meet basic toxicity and biodegradability requirements. Heavy metals, formaldehyde, nickel, and PVC are prohibited from the manufacture process.” Finn & Emma’s Website

Finn & Emma doesn’t just have pajama’s. They also carry a huge selection of clothing, accessories, play mats, toys, muslin swaddles. Check out all they have to offer over at their website found here.


Lalabu Soothe Shirt Review

I am so excited to review this product, because I just love it! My husband and I both tried out the Lalabu Soothe Shirt and are quite impressed with how awesome they are! It almost feels like you have a third arm helping carry the weight of your babe, which is amazing! My very long baby boy (25.25 inches!) is growing so fast that I probably won’t get to use it for babywearing for too much longer, but the amazing part is it doubles as a nursing shirt!



More about the Lalabu Soothe Shirt

Lalabu’s soothe shirt is truly babywearing made simple. No buckles, snaps, or awkward ties. Simply just slip your baby into the built in pouch and TADAA!! I feel like a momma kangaroo snuggling my babe and it is awesome!

Shirt Features:

  • Easy-to-use pouch calms newborns
  • Built-in nursing bra makes breastfeeding convenient
  • Inner mesh panel provides cool breathability
  • Pouch extender grows with baby
  • Made in the USA
  • No need to wear a separate bra
  • Two fabric layers for extra coverage
  • Soft elastic band provides support
  • Shirt covers stomach while nursing

Not only is the Lalabu shirt an incredibly made product, this company even gives 2% of every purchase to moms in Africa, supporting mom entrepreneurs through micro-finance.

I don’t know about you, but I just love supporting businesses that make giving back an important part of their business model.



The Lalabu Story

Okay, so you can clearly tell I love this shirt. I mean it is a genius idea. So how in the world did they come up with this idea you might ask? This husband and wife team took a trip to Africa to visit their aunt and noticed that many of the mothers there all babywear their infants. Babywearing is known to have amazing benefits for baby and their mommy. This led them to question, ” If babywearing is so incredible for both parent and baby, why aren’t more parents in our country doing it?” Then the Lalabu shirt was born. They sought out to create a shirt to make babywearing more simple for all of us Mamas out there. Oh and for all of you men, they didn’t leave you out! Lalabu has a Daddy shirt, too! If your babe is like mine, he just loves snuggling with his daddy! It gives me a nice break to blog, have two free hands, eat a bowl of ice cream, or shower, while daddy can snuggle our baby and still be productive as well.lalabu2


My Overall Impression

LOVE! Have I mentioned I love this product?! I must admit when I first put it on I felt a bit self-conscious with my mombod. It is a snug fit, so don’t be alarmed. The snug fit is necessary, however, so that your baby is safe in your shirt pouch.



My husband sort of felt the same way about the fit. He said that he would like one size bigger, but again, with a smaller baby a snug fit would definitely be necessary.



Even when I can no longer fit my big boy in the pouch, the nursing function is also fantastic and the shirt looks cute enough to wear solo! Guess what else…you can also ditch the bra in this one! Totally enough support built in–wahoo!



My husband and I both give these shirts two thumbs up!! With Christmas just around the corner, the Lalabu Soothe Shirt would be a super awesome gift for any mommy or daddy-to-be!

Rosegal Clothing

Rosegal.com is a hidden nugget that I recently discovered. This website has a HUGE selection of modern and trendy clothing along with accessories and more for crazy low prices. So low I thought it was a mistake at first. There are many clothing retailers online, and you never know what you are really going to get in the mail. I know that I have seen my fair share of horrible photos of misleading clothing companies. When you order your item but something very cheaply made arrives and not even in the right color or fabric. I was honestly super curious to see what the clothing from Rosegal would be like when I got my order. I am honestly tell you I was VERY happy with each article they sent me.


The clothing from Rosegal is not only fashion forward, but in the cuts and colors you want. From daily work clothing, to stay at home mom tee’s to formal ware, they have a huge selection to browse through. They have women’s, men’s, boutique, accessories, shoes, purses, bags, beauty, hair, home and more! Seriously another you would shop for. This site is definitely one you want to bookmark for your new fall pieces and for upcoming holiday shopping. 



This Mama’s Experience

I tried several tops from Rosegal and here are my main thoughts. 1 – great value 2 – very modern and hip 3 – okay materiel used. Like I mentioned above there is always the chance that you may get very low quality pieces of clothing from an online retailer. Its the risk you run shopping online. With Rosegal each of my pieces of clothing looks just like I thought they would based on the internet photos.

While they are not made from the fanciest materials (I didn’t expect they would be at such low prices) they were cut and fit perfectly. I am very happy with how each feels too. None of them were uncomfortable or itchy. They are light and I love how they each feel against my skin. I do think they run slightly small, so order a size up. I typically wear a medium but all these tops shown below are a large. Based on the pieces I received I would recommend Rosegal to my friends and family, and of course my readers too.

If your daughter is looking for a 1st day of school outfit, then I highly suggest Sophia’s Style’s ABC Dress! Being 4 years old, she is all about the ‘princess dress’ look. We have been talking and talking about the excitement of a new school year and when she saw this ABC Dress from Sophia’s Style she instantly fell in love with it. It fits perfectly with some room to grow, and all parents understand the importance in that. It’s comfortable and easy to wear & wash. The skirt portion of this dress is a print of hundreds of crayons, giving it a youthful and whimsical look that really makes it pop.

1st day of school dress

My daughter is very much into mermaids and was ecstatic that this year she will be sporting this Wildkin’s Backpack from Sophia’s Style. It’s the perfect size for toddlers and young elementary students. Often backpacks are too large on smaller kids, causing them discomfort when trying to wear them. These Wildkin Backpacks are not only the perfect size, but have 2 huge pockets, allowing you to fit in a full size folder and all the other books/essentials your child needs to put in their backpack. I had never used this brand before, but I am all about them now.

I’m not going to lie though, as much as I have grown to love this brand, I really wanted my daughter to have a personalized photo backpack as it would help her to identify which bag was hers, as you find that most children have a similar sort of style these days. I was just thinking about her being able to find her backpack without being overcome with worry. But I wanted her to stay true to who she was and what she liked. So the mermaid backpack it was. And I’m glad it was from this brand.

World Breastfeeding Week Giveaway

August 1st through August 7th is 2016’s World Breastfeeding Week. 2016’s theme is about how breastfeeding is a key element in getting us to think about how to value our wellbeing from the start of life, how to respect each other and care for the world we share. My breastfeeding journey has been one of the most precious times of my life. Supporting a mother who chooses to breastfeeding their child is key to their success. When a nursing mother is judged, shamed, denied time or a place to feed their baby it is not only effecting that child’s growth but that mother’s mindset of their breastfeeding experience. This week highlights a women choice to breastfeed and all things that go along with that choice.

WBW Prize Image

To celebrate this week MamatheFox is hosting a huge World Breastfeeding Week Prize Package Giveaway that includes a bra from BeliBea (nursing bra), a case of Milkmaid Tea by Earth Mama Angel Baby and (1) tank top, (1) tee shirt and (1) Breezy Poncho from Bun Maternity (nursing clothing).
