Mom Style #alleyandraetotherescue

When you think of Mommy & Me looks, you probably have something similar to the image below in mind…

This is my beautiful Mom, and two gorgeous Sisters back in the day. How sweet are those cardigans?? LOL!

If you don’t see another post after this one, it’s because my sisters killed me for using this photo!

Anyways, Mommy & Me looks have come quite a ways since then. I LOVE putting outfits together that have the kids and I somewhat coordinating, but still look trendy. One of my favorite clothing lines for this kind of look is by Alley and Rae. They have the cutest Adult Tops, and Children’s Onsies & Tees that are perfect for coordinating outfits!

I promise you won’t look like an 80’s Glamour Shot session gone wrong…

How cute is this “Full Time Job” tee?

The tops for Adults are soft, comfortable and run true to size. They make any outfit instantly cool and look perfect with your favorite jeans!

One of my favorite tops from the shop is below.  Everyday is a Manic Monday over here, so this Tee is totally fitting for my life!

I may or may not wear this shirt on other days of the week… don’t judge me!

Not only is the quality amazing, but, they have the most hilarious captions on them… I mean, really…how can you not laugh when you see your child wearing a “This Is My Kegstand Shirt” Onsie! #imstilllaughing

Mixx it up!

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram,  you’ve probably seen a million and one pictures of this beautiful stroller I’m reviewing today.  We are in LOVE with our Nuna Mixx. This stroller offers so many great features, and is definitely worth taking for a test drive.

I searched high and low for the Nuna Mixx in the Mykonos color.  It’s beyond gorgeous and was the perfect stroller to take on our trip down to the Florida Keys.  I definitely put the Mixx through some rigorous testing, and it passed with flying colors.  Let’s get started!

The Mixx features a cozy reversible seat, with a full FLAT recline that was perfect during our trip.  We were out exploring from morning to night,  so no less than two naps were taken in Mixx each day!  When your child falls asleep in the stroller,  you know you’ve hit the jackpot.

The fabric remained cool in the Florida heat, and the large canopy offered plenty of coverage for my little cuties.  The Canopy has a zipper, which opens up and extends for optimal coverage with two mesh inserts on either side to allow for extra ventilation.  The handle bar is easy to adjust and the storage basket is HUGE.  The basket was able to hold a Ju-Ju-Be Super Be or Be Prepared (I tried out both), beach toys, drinks, and extra towels.  There’s even a divider to keep things organized.  My OCD self did a little happy dance when I saw that feature!

Nuna really had a child’s comfort in mind when creating this beauty.  The seat is plush and roomy, and offers a three or five point harness that really comes in handy when you have riders of different ages. The Mixx comes with a removable arm bar that’s perfect for attaching stroller toys.  A snack tray is not available yet, but, it’s in the works and will be available soon.  This will be a great addition to an already fab stroller!

The push on the Mixx is awesome!  It has front and rear wheel progressive suspension technology.  I pushed this stroller through every terrain possible in Florida… Sand, gravel, grass, bumpy sidewalks… You name it, we tried it!  It handled like a dream, just like I knew it would.

The rear tires are large, which allowed me to pull it through soft sand on the beach easily.  The foot brake is one touch and definitely flip-flop friendly, which I love!

One of my favorite features on the Nuna Mixx has to be the fold.  It’s so simple, that on day 2 of our vacation, everyone in the Family knew how to fold the stroller!

The Mixx can be collapsed with the seat facing in either direction, it’s fairly compact, and can be opened with one hand.  Whichever direction you fold the stroller, the seat fabric is protected, and I love that.

I gate checked (GASP!!) our Mixx on both flights, and I have to say that due to the awesome fold (and Frontier Airlines for being awesome!), this stroller was in immaculate condition when we received it.

My only complaint would have to be the design of the handlebar.  It’s comfortable, but the shape is different from most strollers.  I think it just takes some getting used to… My Husband didn’t even notice the difference, so, take it as me just being picky…that’s kind of my job though! 🙂

Here are the Specs on the Nuna Mixx:

  • Price: $499.95
  • recommended use: birth to 50 lbs
  • Compatible with Nuna PIPA Car Seat
  • Car Seat Adapter included with purchase of stroller
  • product dimensions: h 44.3 x w 23.4 x l 33.5 in

  • product weight: 24.9 lbs  *weight does not include canopy or arm bar

Overall, the Nuna Mixx is a fabulous everyday stroller.  Coming in at under $500.00, it’s a lot of bang for your buck. The design and quality are outstanding, and it’s totally gorgeous to look at.  The comfort of the seat, amazing push, easy fold, and large storage basket, make this a great option for daily use or city living!

Paw Patrol, anyone?

Every once in a while, I find a product that makes me think “Why didn’t I think of that?”.  The Baby Beehaven See n’ Store Stroller Organizer makes you do just that.  It has a spot to hold a Tablet or portable DVD Player!  Genius.  Now, we can watch Paw Patrol EVERYWHERE!

Are you singing the intro song yet?  HA!

I wish I could say all outings with the kids are a piece of cake, but, I would be lying.  I usually look like a sweaty hot mess on the verge of a nervous breakdown.  Sometimes, the Tablet comes out to make grocery shopping or lunch a little easier!  Who doesn’t need that every once in a while? 

This is such a great product with PARENTS in mind.  Thank you for helping us stay sane!
