Margaux and May, is a baby product company that has chosen to are avoid the typical newborn color palate and designs in favor of more mom-centric designs leaning towards style and sophistication. Check out the gorgeous animal prints to the left–it’s a picture of the same twin-set of organic swaddle blankets in the giveaway at the bottom of this post!
These blankets are incredibly soft and generously sized at 120cm x 120 cm/47″ x 47″, which are certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) as being made from 100% organic cotton. Not to mention, they are hand-woven by experienced artisans; with a practice dating back to the Bangladesh of Medieval Times.
My husband is a graphic designer and an artist. He is often taking pictures for his latest graphic design project of whatever new work of art that he is working on–how else could he properly advertise himself. Not to mention the millions upon millions of pictures that both my husband and I seem to take of our kids’ every move–often it seems that we are so busy recording our children that we forget to come out from behind the camera.
For quality pictures, a phone doesn’t always cut it–sometimes, you just need a really good camera. A decent camera is a big purchase, so we’ve been doing some research on the best models to buy.
We’re a pretty low tech family, so I held out for a loooong time before giving in to buying a gaming console for our household. Finally, after tons of research about safe gaming for kids and available games, I settled on a Nintendo WiiU and we’ve been enjoying it ever since.
GameStop’s trade-in policies and the huge bins of pre-owned games have been really useful in helping us build up our game collection–I love being able to sell back games that aren’t a hit (you never really know until you take them home!)
As Hanukkah is halfway over and Christmas is just a few short days away, it’s good to know how many last minute deals GameStop has for all of us procrastinators.
