Where are my Halloween loving ladies at?

Halloween is in about three weeks and it definitely is time to start prepping now. Whether you want to decorate, invite to a party, prep your costumes or make cute Halloween baskets for your kids.

I really enjoy making themed baskets for my little one but that shouldn´t be a surprise at all cause I love everything with a theme. You can read more about my Valentine´s Day and Easter baskets here and here.

Halloween Toddler Basket

So what to put into a Halloween toddler basket ? Well there is always the same order I follow. I get a basket (of course) and then I start with a book and usually a little stuffed animal. I also like to give out little toys but switched it for a cute ghost t-shirt. If she would be a little older I would officially go with Halloween candy but since we are trying to give her food with less processed sugar I went with a smoothie pack. She loves them and they also have great autumnal flavors with sweet potatoe, pumpkin and vanilla.

The baskets I have are from a local dollar store but amazon has similar ones and I am sure your dollar store has them too. Another thing I got for Emilia was a coloring book cause she really likes to color the last few weeks but it definitely isn´t one for a toddler. It doesn´t look nearly as cute on the inside as it does on the outside. Gonna keep it for a few years until she learns how to write since it is all about the ABC. Also last but not least (another dollar store find) cute 3D stickers. She never had sticker but I thought they would fit perfectly into the theme and the basket of course.

So since Emilia is still a little thing I don´t think we are going trick or treating this year. Do you have any plans for Halloween ?

Happy Hump Day Girls,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate LInks-not sponsored)

we just came back from play group and Emilia is napping so I wanted to quickly share this post with you. Packing for a toddler needs a minute of planning cause it is super overwhelming. 

In fact you have to pack everything you use at home and more. Yeah that sounds like a lot am I right?! So in today´s post I wanted to share some of my favorites for travelling and also how I pack for Emilia.

How to pack for a toddler

So I wanted to give you a little insight on how I pack for Emilia. I have three things I do. First of all I lay out all of her outfits and put them together the way I planned her to wear them. After that I put them into packing cubes. This is my number one thing I pack all of our luggage. Packing cubes are your friends. They keep your luggage/weekender in order which is important if you want to have quick access to your things plus you won´t get annoyed by searching.

I have train cases for all of us. I got the same model in different colors and I put everyones toiletry in it. This way it´s color coded and I know where everything is. This might seem obsessive to some but it does the trick and in the end that´s what´s important.

So another piece we all have is the Reisenthel Allrounder in size large. There are tons of colors available and you can get it personalized which is great. I have used it for years of travel and also for my stay in the hospital. I got my husband one for his birthday and now Emilia has her first weekender. They hold a lot of stuff and look great as well plus they are super affordable. 

I know this might seem a little obsessive but this is just how I know where everything is and I have quick access to it if I need to. Vacations can be stressful enough so you shouldn´t stress about all the other things.

Some of our favorite travel gadgets for road trips and hotel stays are listed below. You can all get them off amazon and in my opinion every item was totally worth it.

Happy Thursday,

I had a hair appointment today to get a cut and color refresh. These are my favorite kinds of time-outs. Being pampered is the best isn´t it?

Since we are in the last weeks of Summer I wanted to share a round-up of all our swimming pictures. We went to the pool a lot of times. It is just so much more fun when you have a little one. 

All of the products we take to the pool with us is linked on my amazon shop page.

Happy Hump Day you guys,

one of our favorite Summer activity is going to the swimming pool. Emilia loves the water and I enjoy it watching her splash around and play with her little friends and experience the water. Of couse everywhere we go I am pakcing a lot of stuff that needs to go with us and there is no exception here.

For beach bags I went back and forth but ultimately decided to get the O Bag Beach. I love O Bag and their concept of the possibility to put a personal touch on evey bag you get. 

I got the O Bag Beach in white and selected the navy blue rope handles. It looks very nautical. Perfect for a beach themed bag. 

What to pack into your beach bag

 

UV protecting hat // UV protection clothing is definitely necessary when you plan on spending the day outside by the pool. The sun is so much stronger near the water.

swaddles // I use these to cover her legs when she is sitting in the stroller. They are thin but still have the effects of a blanket.

towel // The hooded towels we got are perfect for sitting around after swimming. The towel doesn´t come off cause it is like a poncho plus it doubles as a blanket to warm up.

shovel // Emilia´s latest obsession. She is taking a shovel everywhere these days.

sun cream // SPF 50 is super important for every baby/toddler especially on pale childrens skin. We have used this sun lotion for the second summer now and we are very satisfied. Got the face lotion as well.

stacking cups // A huge hit whether it is the bath tub or the pool.

fishing net // Such a cute little game. The net comes with 4 little fish to catch with the net,

swim diapers // Definitely a must-have if you are swimming at a public pool. No one likes poop swimming around in the water.

Havaianas // Is there anything cuter than flip flops on a baby??!! This is our favorite brand. The whole family owns Havaianas so Emilia needed a pair too.

swim shoes // These have been pretty helpful cause the indoor pools are really slippery and the tiles by the outdoor pools are super hot in the heat. They are available in tons of colors and Emilia seems to like them a lot.

snack cup // Of course snacks should not be forgotten cause swimming makes hungry. This is great for your little one to pick one by one and not toss everything around.

pacifier // For sleeping in the car after all the splashing which is definitely everytime the case.

As you can see we have lots of stuff with us but the beach bag fits all of it. It is wipeable and washable in the sink which is amazing. Holds up great and the handles are thick and resistant.
