It’s my first Friday Five Finds of 2017, with a hygge twist!
Check out what’s keeping me sane and stylish, this week. I wasn’t really looking for a theme, but every find has a hygge vibe (that’s Danish for “cozy” aka celebrating the everyday moments).
1. Insta Print
If you’re like me, you have thousands of photos of your kids – waaaay more than your parents have of you! But, your parents, and mine, actually printed photos. Ya, they took the time to print photos and make albums.
Prynt let’s you print instantly. Simply attach the device to your iPhone and snap a photo. A tiny, built-in printer produces a hard-copy photo, and the Prynt app records a video to go with the image. The Prynt case photo can be scanned with your phone’s QR technology to bring the image to life on your screen via that video.
Don’t even ask meabout that last line means. I took it from their website. I know it’s a cool feature. I still haven’t used that bit. But, I have made my grandmother very happy, by giving her photos right on the spot. #GranmasLovePrints
2. Sweeter Sweaters
J Jill makes some of the best sweaters and pullovers. When I can’t think in the morning, I grab a cream or white knit, pair with a skinny jean, some diamond-stud earrings and wide-rim sunglasses, and I’m done. NO SWEATPANTS TO DAYCARE. Repeat as needed!!
For mamas who still aren’t familiar with J.Jill, I urge you to check them out online, or a store near you. The photos don’t do most of the sweaters justice. You have to feel, try and style your way. Head over to Instagram for my insta stories, to see which sweater I’m wearing, today #KeepingWarm
3. Ending Mealtime Madness
N+B is a hip brand that focuses on “toys for cooler parents” – gotta love that slogan! This Meal Wheel is great not only for promoting family conversation, but, it makes a game out of eating. Playtime meets mealtime meets sanity! #Winning
4. Chicer, Cleaner Candles
A Lucid Candle always looks great, never melts, is super safe (no sparks, no soot) and has a natural fragrance. The candle shell is made of a polymer that never burns down, and you simple remove the top fiberglass wick, pour in lucid liquid paraffin, and enjoy. Click here to see how they work.
Candles are hygge approved. And this fuss-free option, is a Friday-night essential. #AllKidsToBe #WereAdulting
5. Speak-to-Me Stones
I found Eye of the Sea, a fabulous new-to-me, jewelry brand, last year, at an Accessories Council showcase. With my new love for gemstones and spiritual jewelry, I was hooked on the simple, yet, elegant bracelets.
I’ve been rocking the brand’s Rose Quarts (self love) bracelet, but for 2017 I’m adding amethyst (stone of spiritual healing and growth) and maybe peridot (color of the year and stone of relationships). Give it a try. If nothing else, you have a nice piece of jewelry. #GettingStoned
