Bebe Bella Designs Strap Covers!!

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
strapsWhile car seats are a million times safer than they have ever been, those straps still seem to rub and leave red marks on Alice’s neck. It makes me feel bad, I know that has to be uncomfortable! So, great carseats!! But the straps…. not so much!!

I was thrilled when this adorable set of Bebe Bella Designs Strap Covers arrived. These strap covers are SO SOFT!!! They are made from THE softest minky chenille EVER!! I would love to wrap myself in a big ‘ole blanket made of this minky chenille!! At the very least Bebe Bella Designs I’d love adult size strap covers!!

Alice hasn’t had a mark on her neck since we added these strap covers to her car-seat!  I’m thrilled!!  These are quality made strap covers. They strap covers are the perfect size for the car-seat strap. The fit is impeccable, these fit snug!! No give or slip and they stay PUT!!!  These covers don’t slide down away from Alice’s neck. The covers close with a full size, wide piece of Velcro.  Bebe Bella Designs did not skimp on quality, workmanship and details.

The colors are perfect!! Browns, white and pink on one side and a perfect baby pink on the other side. Bebe Bella Designs has other colors available too.

These strap covers truly keep the kids very comfortable in the car. These covers would easily fit the straps on strollers and swings too!  These covers are 100% Polyester. Easy to remove and machine wash. Which by the way, if you have a temporary moment of insanity and give a child, oh say a 2 year old Alice for instance, peanut butter and apple slices….. well, these covers wash up like a DREAM!! They come out of the dryer looking brand new! Wash cold water and tumble dry on low.

Wear The Paint Review

Wear The Paint is a new company that specializes in hand painted products.  Claudia and Victoria are the founders and do all of the painting themselves.  These are hand painted, so that makes each one unique and original.
Each item is hand painted to order!!
I was sent Gold Fish to review. Gold Fish is hand painted on a black crewneck sweatshirt.  This gold fish is painted with eco-friendly white paint and highlights of purples and blues.  This is a quality sweatshirt made with 50% cotton and 50 polyester.  The sweatshirt has ribbed cuffs and collar.
The Gold Fish painted on the front is adorable.

The sweatshirt is 100% machine washable. I had absolutely no bleeding of the colors and Gold Fish still looks adorable.
Wear The Paint has men’s and women’s t-shirts and sweatshirts.  They will soon be adding shoes!! I can’t wait to see those!!  I hope Victoria and Claudia add canvas totes too!!  (hint hint!)

Elephant Blue by Frances Gilbert

I can say without a doubt that Alice prefers story time to television time. ANYTIME!! Two year old Alice would rather cuddle up and read books almost more than a trip to the park. (Almost…) I was thrilled to be allowed to review Elephant Blue by Frances Gilbert. This is a fun rhyming, sing song journey of animals and colors. The illustrations are stunning!!

This book sends Alice’s imagination in to over drive!! Pointing at pictures, asking questions. AND wanting to hear the story AGAIN!  I LOVE that!!! By the way, if there were a chapter for Alice, she said she would be sparkle pink!

Granted, this book is meant for 3rd to 5th graders, but don’t tell Alice that! She loves the poetry of Elephant Blue. The description of the animals, the mention of the colors sparked her to ask questions. What color is chartreuse? What color is RUBY?  Alice loves rhyming books, she loves big book, small books, green books, orange books and she loves Blue Elephants by Frances Gilbert.

This is a soft cover book. There are 26 imaginative pages describing animals with colors that make you SEE them in your minds eye and on the pages.  Cyntia deHahn does a spectacular job with the illustrations.

If you are looking for a book that inspires your child’s imagination, this is it!  4 thumbs WAY up for Elephant Blue!

Along with Elephant Blue, there are tons of excellent books at Kabuki Helps.  Use coupon code Peanutbutter for 10% off!!
