BEB Favorites: February 2019
Helloooooo last Monday in February, which means it’s time for another installment of BEB favorites!
An assortment of new-to-me products, some Christmas gifts I’ve been using for a couple of months now, a few baby favorites, things for the house, ice cream(!!) and a new favorite app. I hope you enjoy the recommendations, and would love to hear anything new that you’re loving this month! Share in the comments below :)
Honest Deeply Nourishing Baby Shampoo and Body Wash – I started using this when Isabelle was about four months old, after smelling the hair of a friend’s baby, HA! It smelled so delicious! Not only do I love how good it smells, but that it’s moisturizing as well, and that you can pair it with the same scented lotion.
Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Electric Toothbrush – It probably makes me sound like an old, boring person, but when my husband asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I totally asked for an electric toothbrush. I had been wanting one for awhile but hadn’t gotten around to getting one. He did all of the research and got this one. I love it! The very first time I used it, it seriously felt like my teeth had been cleaned at the dentist’s office. I’ve been using it for a couple of months now and it’s been a fantastic upgrade from my manual toothbrush. Plus, you can connect it to an app that will give you feedback on your brushing!
Boll & Branch Sheets – We were in the market for new sheets a month or so ago, and these kept popping up as one of the highly rated brands, so I decided to give them a try since they were in the same ballpark price-wise as the Wamsutta sheets we had been using from Bed Bath & Beyond. OMG. These sheets are so ridiculously soft! They sort of feel airy and light, but super soft and luxurious all at the same time. So hard to explain, but my husband and I both love, love, love them! Now I’m thinking of trying their bath towels next!
Robeez Baby Socks – Isabelle has the sweetest little chunky feet and all of the socks I had for her would continually fall off. After asking for baby sock recommendations on Instagram, the overwhelming majority of people recommended these, as well as the Zutano booties that I talked about in last month’s favorites. These socks seriously stay put and have yet to ever fall off of her feet. It’s a miracle!
Barefoot Dreams Cozychic Coastal Hooded Cardigan – My mom bought this for me for Christmas and I absolutely adore it, I wear it all the time. It’s the softest, coziest material that I just want to wrap myself up in. I have another Barefoot Dreams cardigan from years ago, but love that this one is a little bit longer and has a hood!
Salt & Straw Ice Cream – I had the opportunity to try a set of pints of this ice cream, and it is SO GOOD. My husband and I demolished the Almond Brittle with Salted Ganache in record time, I sort of said “hands off” to the Sea Salt with Caramel Ribbons, and the Freckled Woodblock Chocolate is a little salty, which makes it divine. If you do any mail order ice cream, add this one to your list!
Natemia Wooden Baby Hair Brush and Comb Set – This is basically the prettiest baby brush set I have ever seen. When Joseph and Dominic were babies, I used the little soft brush that came in a baby set from the hospital, and once they started really growing hair and getting it cut, it’s always been short enough to just use a regular ol’ comb. However, Isabelle’s hair is starting to get long and I wanted to be able to brush it nicely, so I set out to find a good brush to use on a baby and toddler. This set popped up a few times, and I ordered it immediately. The brushes and comb are such wonderful quality; it would make a fabulous baby gift!
OXO Silicone Drying Mats – I had been using a microfiber drying mat for years and just really didn’t like it; it would take forever to dry if I had to do a lot of dishes, and even though I would wash it frequently, it sort of always looked dingy. I decided to swap it for a silicone version, and found these on Amazon. I love pretty much everything OXO, and these are no exception. I bought two to place side-by-side so I have a large drying area next to the sink. They look nice on the counter and can be thrown in the dishwasher to clean if needed.
Ember Temperature Control Ceramic Mug – I bought this for my husband for Christmas because he was alwayssssss reheating his coffee throughout the day. This mug sits on a little coaster and charges, then when you’re ready to use it, it connects to an app on your phone and you set it to the temperature you want it to stay at, and it maintains that temperature for as long as the mug holds the charge (which is at least a few hours). He loves it!
Lightroom Mobile App – I recently downloaded this app (it’s free) and have been editing my iPhone photos with it… I am IN LOVE. Best editor I’ve found yet. In addition, I purchased a set of Light & Airy presets for the app, and they seriously make my photos look AMAZING. The preset package (it includes nine presets) was $47 and I think totally worth it if you take all (or the majority) of your photos with your phone.
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!
