Cocokind, one of my favorite organic skincare brands has recently just launched their Cocokind Baby line. The brand is already about clean ingredients with virgin organic coconut oil as their base for most of their products. Their baby line takes this even further with most products containing only a handful of ingredients. These products are great not only for baby but for toddlers, kids and even mamas with sensitive skin. Chloe has as always had sensitive skin -- I wish I had these products when she was a baby! Right now, I'm using the baby oil on her arms and... Continue reading

A year ago, I started on my Erin Condren Life Planner journey. I first found out about this planner from my blog friend Katie at Good Life Eats. Katie was a food writer of mine when I was an editor at Craftzine.com. I remember her tweeting a few years ago that she just purchased an EC Life Planner to organize her life and I was really intrigued. Last year, I realized I needed to get myself into organizing shape. As much of an organized person I am, I always felt like at the end of the year, I was only... Continue reading

It's finally summer and kids can enjoy a virtual vacation with their favorite characters in the new app, Toca Life Vacation ($2.99, available for iOS, Android and Kindle) from Toca Boca.

Thanks to the folks at Toca Boca, she received a preview app and was immediately excited to explore the game. Intuitively, she knew exactly what to do with the game once she started. It does does not disappoint with... Continue reading

A photo posted by Natalie Zee Drieu (@coquettenatalie) on May 3, 2016 at 8:30pm PDT For the last five years, I've been attending Chronicle Books' amazing book preview events each fall and spring.

At this event is where I get to preview what's coming up for the next season with Chronicle Books' kids division.
