Marlee Ro

Hey lovelies!

I’ve been away lately, working my butt off, actually. You see, last year I opened up an Etsy shop, Geeky Chic, and sold my vintage blankets. After a year, I decided to revamp the shop, give it a new look, a new name and add new items! That’s when Marlee Ro was born. I now offer custom-made vintage belted/studded/feathered/laced boots, vintage blankets and adult and toddler infinity scarves. The “kidfinity” as I have coined it, is a hot seller!

The boots are all vintage leather boots that I’ve collected and revamped.

And the blankets are still the lovable vintage prints that inspired me to start this little business a year ago!

I hope you will check out my shop and maybe purchase a little treasure for someone special in your life! You can get to the shop by following this link —> Marlee Ro

Instagram Auction for the Chastain Family

It’s hard for me to ever imagine losing my husband. He’s my rock, my soulmate….the only person that really gets me. That’s why it’s absolutely heartbreaking to know my close friend and business partner, Amanda Chastain, has lost her other half.

brown-chastain-135 (2)

3 weeks ago, Amanda’s husband, Ryan, passed away suddenly and completely unexpectedly. Not only is she dealing with the greatest loss she will probably ever encounter, but she has, understandably, decided to leave the apartment they shared together and the job at their leasing office.

I’ve decided to put together an auction to benefit Amanda in this intense period of loss for her. Items in the auction will mainly be from our shop, Sugar Rush Boutique. Other items will be from my personal shop, Geeky Chic, and other small donations from friends and co-workers. Amanda is one of the most special people in my life, and I would love to help her out right now.

Here’s an idea of some of the auction items!

The auction ends tonight at 9pm EST. You can find it on Instagram, follow this link www.instagram.com/ChastainAuction or search ChastainAuction on Instagram.

All donations are also welcome.

Thank you guys for your support. I love you all!

Spotlight Feature: Tumbleweeds Handcraft

 

banner

Shhh…don’t tell anyone, but I’m sort of obsessed a huge fan of Tumbleweeds Handcraft. If the name doesn’t ring a bell, let me give you a little glimpse into the world of Tumbleweeds (you can thank me later).  Come on in…

becaconfetti

Beca and Doug are the creators of the Tumbleweeds Handcraft brand and make everything they sell by hand. Their specialty is wood veneer glasses, but they have recently expanded their brand to other wood and veneer items.

Tumbleweeds glasses come in a wide variety of styles and designs. The duo is always coming up with something fresh and innovative, and basically blowing my mind. (Follow them on Instagram for an insight to their genius)

I personally have a pair of Pretty in Pink sunglasses from their Spring collection, as well as a pair of turquoise accented frames for my prescription lenses.

I’ve also recently purchased 2 Adventure Utensils for gifts and can’t wait to play with them! These are perfect for that guy in your life that’s impossible to buy for or a great baby shower gift…hello diaper bag!

They released a few photos of their Fall/Winter 2013 line and I’m DYING. Especially over the Halffetti…I’m a sucker for the confetti glasses.

Make sure you pick up a raglan shirt while you’re there. Best $20 bucks ever spent. So soft!

Nuby Sound Bites Spoons Review

Are you one of those moms that makes the fun car/train/airplane sounds while feeding your little one? ME TOO! Seriously, feeding time can sometimes be the most stressful time of day (besides nap time…let’s not even go there). Either your little one gobbles up his food and leaves a trail, or fights with you just to get a little bite of something good for her.

IMG_8642

Nuby is making it easier for us with the adorable Sound Bites spoon. This spoon has a fun attachment that, with just a click of button, makes noise just like the mode of transpiration it’s designed after.

IMG_8643

We have the airplane and Lincoln loves it!

IMG_8644

It’s also a breeze to clean. The airplane pops right off and is easy to wash.

 

This is a great little gift for any expectant mother or for a 1st birthday.

You can pick up a Nuby Sound Bites spoon from BestBabyGear.com

Nuby Tickle Toes Stuffed Animal

Nuby’s Tickle Toes Dog is a new member of our family. Lincoln is so entertained by this little purple dog. Not only is he soft and a perfect cuddle buddy, but his cute little laugh is infectious.

Spotlight Feature: Little Hip Squeaks

It’s no secret to anyone how much I adore the children’s brand Little Hip Squeaks. Not only is owner Amy Richardson one of the coolest women and moms I know, but she’s an absolutely extraordinary designer. I wish I could have just 1/3 of her creativity. She creates every pattern and fabric design herself, not many small business can claim that (and actually mean it)! That’s just one of the many reasons that her brand has been so successful.

Until now, Little Hip Squeaks has sold items mainly on Etsy. Come this Friday, June 21st, LHS will launch their very own e-commerce site with ready to ship items. This excites me to no end! Their products are so hot and in demand, that the 100+ sets of headbands that were posted on June 7th sold out in 6 MINUTES! The new site will give customers the opportunity to snag items that are well stocked, not to mention the new Summer 2013 collection is to die for! Can you say NEON?

I received a package from Little Hip Squeaks this week. The headbands are one of their hottest sellers (HINT: the toddler size fits adults). The grey and white print will be available on the new site as part of the Summer 2013 collection.

Here’s a sneak peek at the items that will hit the web this Friday!

Father’s Day 2013

Do you remember last year’s Father’s Day post? Lincoln was a little over 2 months at the time and I decided to take cute memorable photos. This year, I decided to take similar pics and keep up the tradition every year. Enjoy the pics below! Last year is on the left, this year on the right.
