Butler Boot for kids review Pamela Pekerman

The Butler Boot: 3-in-1 Kids Boots for All Seasons

Hey Mamas,

It’s Friday, and while for many of us, the weekends aren’t too much of a departure from our typical Monday to Friday mama hustle, I still always feel a bit gitty when Friday afternoon rolls around.

Even the crazy rain isn’t going to stop me and my munchkins from splashing about in style, especially, now that their new Butler Boots arrived.

Designed to make mom’s life easier – THANK YOU we appreciate all the extra help! – the innovative rain boots actually do more than just protect your kiddos feet from the rain.

Dubbed the “whatever the weather” shoe, the Butler boot has a 3-in-1 design allowing your kids to wear them in multiple situations from snow, to rain, to sunny days.

The outer boot is made from one sleek mold without any stitching or glue, which means to leaky seams. Waterproof winner for when you’re pretending you’re Peppa Pig, jumping in moody puddles.

That shell is also super lightweight, and ideal for early spring time or fall.

There’s also an inner, breathable slipper booties that gives extra warmth during winter and snow season. But, the kids will not sweat thanks to moisture wick material.

That same slipper can be worn on it’s own, which is great for kids that are in daycare and can take off their outer shell. Or, if you’re heading over for a play date, no need to send slippers. (Yes, we are a no-walking-without-slippers family! #HouseRules )

Summing up time-saving, money-saving awesomeness of the Butler Boot

  • A Shoe for all 4 seasons (does anyone else hear the Grease song in their head? …. A Girl for All Season)
  • Outer boot is waterproof
  • The easy on, easy off design means that toddlers can easily put the boot on by themselves (more free time for mom… yes, drink your collagen latte pretty lady)
  • Slipper liner can be worn as cozy slipper
  • Outer boot and inner slipper have slip resistant sole
  • Outer boot can slip over some slim sneakers, making it easy for older kids to keep sneakers/shoes on in school, and slip on outer boot when heading back home.
  • Super lightweight (not always the case with rain boots)
  • Non-toxic and environmentally-friendly material

Sizing: size up, especially if you want to slip in your own sneakers into the outer boot.

J.Mater is what happens when two fashion-fierce women become moms and want a handbag that looks sleek, withstands vomit (yup tested that one myself!) and controls your chaos, aka the endless about out sh*t, I mean stuff, you have to carry around on any given day.

With three zip pouches ranging in sizes small (ideal for makeup), medium (loose papers, kids craziness, whips, crayons, crackers, extra undies/diapers…) and large (laptop friendly), plus a large zip wallet and changing pad, this handbag truly has it all handled for mamas.

PS What my interview with J.Mater co-founder Johanna Almstead.

Yes, I will be brilliant today, thanks to this multi-functional tote, ideal for the mom wholikes a bag with structure, i.e. not a slouchy shoulder bag.

The Be Brilliant Tote wins my vote for the super convenient zippered bottom compartment, ideal for a change of shoes. Go from school drop off to stiletto deal-maker, in minutes!

You’ll find lots of other zippers, compartments and takeout pouches for all your motherly roles/needs, but the spot for the shoes, that’s really the clincher.

A fashion-tech brand that’s ideal for a mama who is most likely to drive up to daycare playing Guns&Roses, DMX, or maybe a little ACDC for her kiddos, ANDI has that coolness factor woven into every fiber of this tote.

The Cameo Pink (other metallic and bold color ways available) is perfect for the busy commuter mom – or dad, as this is a unisex-friendly style. The tote can transform from a shoulder bag to a backpack with the ease of a few clicks.

Aside from being 100% vegan, the bags are waterproof and machine-washable. I don’t know about you, but when I hear “machine-washable” I get very excited!

Drop a comment below and let me know if you own any of these bags, or have other suggestions for handbags that hustle like a mom.

Buying pieces of jewelry can be pretty expensive, even if it’s just costume jewelry. However, crafting handmade jewelry can mean much more than making nice pieces of jewelry pieces at lower cost; you can also make jewelry that closely matches your personal style and taste. By learning a few basic techniques, you should be able to construct unique styles of jewelry sets, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and more.

Try making Swarovski crystal earrings. These earrings are fairly simple to make, and only require two crystals for your charms, two jump rings, and two earring findings. You will also need a set of pliers to help open and close the jewelry pieces..

1. Buy a jewelry making kit. Jewelry making kits provide you with basic supplies and tools that allow you to customize different jewelry pieces and make them all your own. Most kits come with some basic instructions with different jewelry ideas, but you can use your imagination to create whatever kind of jewelry you want.

  • There are many variations of jewelry making kits depending on what specific kind of jewelry you want to make.
  • For example, there are beading jewelry kits, stringing jewelry kits, and wire jewelry kits, just to name a few.

Common skills and techniques that must be learned include opening jump rings, cutting wire, wire working, stringing, and using jigs and pegs, just to name a few.
