BEB Favorites: February 2018
Welcome to the February installment of BEB favorites!
It’s the last Monday of the month, which means it’s time for another BEB favorites!
Most of these we’ve been using for at least a couple of months and are loving! Let’s get to it…
UGG Duffled Double Knit Robe – My mom got this robe for me for Christmas, and I am IN LOVE with it. I went through two robes previously when each of the boys were born; the first one was too long for 5’1 me (tripping hazard on the steps) and the other was too thin and not warm enough. This one is a perfect length, the inside is fleece and the outside is super soft sweatshirt material. This seems to run big, since before I got pregnant I was wearing mostly size medium shirts, and this robe in a size small and still fits me at 8+ months pregnant! It looks to be sold out right now, but if it comes back or you can find it elsewhere, BUY IT!
Maui Jim Baby Beach Sunglasses – Another Christmas gift (these were from my husband!), and I adore them. He got me a pair of Maui Jim’s for a birthday six years ago, and they’re still going strong, but I had been wanting a pair of aviator sunglasses. The problem is that I have such a small face that most of them just look ridiculous on me. This “baby beach” model is perfect for small faces, and I love how light they feel on my face!
Breville Precision Brewer Coffee Maker – We had been using a Keurig for years, but my husband (the primary coffee drinker at our house) was starting to want a more traditional coffee maker so we weren’t blowing through pods. We had the opportunity to try this one out and it is fantastic! There are many brewing options (including cold brews and single cups) and tons of tweaking you can do to create a totally custom cup of coffee. My husband said the coffee is infinitely better, especially since we’re now using freshly ground coffee beans.
And on that note, my father-in-law swears by this Bellemain burr coffee grinder and got us one as well. It does a significantly better job than the cheapy plain grinder we had been using; you can select how finely to grind the beans, as well as the exact amount, which makes it perfect for grinding only the amount you need right then and there. A great, economical choice if you’re looking for a burr coffee grinder.
I bake from scratch 95% of the time, but I keep some box mixes in my pantry for emergencies. Last weekend was the first time I’d used a brownie mix in YEARS, and oh my gosh, I fell in love! The Ghiradelli Triple Fudge Brownies are, hands-down, the best box brownies I have ever made. There will now always be a spot in my pantry for that box, thankyouverymuch.
Juice Beauty Skincare – I first discovered this brand when I was pregnant with Dominic, as they have an entire line dedicated to healthy pregnancies, with products made only with ingredients that are safe to use while pregnant. I love the exfoliating cleanser, cleansing milk, soothing serum, nutrient moisturizer, antioxidant moisturizer, and smoothing eye concentrate.
Laguiole Jean Dubost Stainless-Steel Steak Knives – We bought these back in December to replace the old steak knives we had. We had a mix of a couple of sets, half of them couldn’t go in the dishwasher, wood-handled ones always smelled kind of musty… so I went Googling and researching and this French brand came up time and again as the best of the best. I found this stainless steel set at Williams-Sonoma that are dishwasher safe and slice like a DREAM. Highly recommend if you’re in the market for knives (or know anyone getting married!).
Melissa & Doug Lacing Beads – Joseph’s school uses these and his teacher mentioned that pre-kindergarten and kindergarten teachers are noticing a general decline in fine motor skills, so they try to really work on them in his class and encourage parents to to do similar activities at home. Joseph LOVES these… he loves to thread the laces and then stack the different blocks and beads.
That’s a wrap with what I’ve been loving recently! I would love to hear about some of your new favorites as well; share them in the comments below!
