January is one of those months where you just kind of wish it was springtime, the holidays are over, and it feels like winter is never going to end... so much time spent indoors (especially when you have little ones). Lately we're staying cozy with the cutest blankets from Clementine Kids, and gearing up for spring cleaning with some awesome home cleaning accessories from FullCircle Home. Since I'm breastfeeding, I'm also loving lactation bars from Milkful and the prettiest glass water bottles from SOMA. We're loving our new storage containers from U Konserve too! What have you been up to lately and what items have you been loving?

I'm a minimalist in pretty much all areas except cute blankets, I simply cannot resist them. I mean, yes, I did just get rid of a few blankets recently, but if I'm being completely honest... I mostly only got rid of them to quite the husband's requests of no more blankets (since he thinks we have too many)... so I could get more blankets, so we still have the same amount (except with a couple new ones), but hey, whatever works right? Haha. Clementine Kids quilts are some of our absolute favorites for the little ones and these new ones we recently added to their blanket stash are some of the cutest I've seen. Bella is in love with (read: obsessed with) all things unicorn. She wants all the things to have unicorns, so this sweet unicorn quilt is kind of perfect for her, and she loves cuddling up under it while reading or watching movies in the morning. I am currently loving all things monochrome and this black and white quilt is kind of perfect for Bodhi, so neutral so it blends perfectly into every space in our home, plus he loves when I snuggle him up in it and let him nap in my arms, we also use it on the floor for tummy time sometimes! This one which we've owned for a few years is one of our most favorites too!

I'm all about reusable things, and these stainless steel containers from U Konserve that we recently got are amazing! They arrived in the funnest packaging, an old nike shoe box with re-purposed newspapers instead of packing bubbles! I just loved that U Konserve really believes in their mission, of conserving and reusing to create less waste and make our world a better place! All of their items are thoughtfully created and sold with the ultimate purpose of less waste going into our landfills, and creating a better world for not only us, but especially our children who we are leaving it to. We have this container and this one, they're great for storing leftovers, sending lunches with my husband to work, snacking on the go and more! I think we'll have to add some of their reusable stainless steel straws next!

As a breastfeeding mama, I'm always searching for snacks and things that will help ensure a healthy milk supply. With Bella, even though I breastfed her until she was around 9.5 months old (when my milk dried up), we had to start supplementing her some around 4 months because my milk supply dropped so low, so I'm really hoping to not have to supplement this time and hopefully be able to breastfeed Bodhi for a good long while. I recently discovered these yummy lactation bars from Milkful (the chocolate banana nut flavor is my favorite) that are filled with so many good wholesome lactation supporting ingredients for breastfeeding/pumping mamas like rolled oats, brewers yeast, flax, black sesame, walnuts and almonds!

Raise your hand if you love cleaning... cricket, cricket... Okay, at least we're all honest here. I don't like cleaning, but I do love having everything clean and having a clean home, so of course as a mama to two little ones, cleaning happens often around here. I recently got some new cleaning accessories from Full Circle Home and let me tell you, I;m kinda loving them. Not only am I loving them because they clean really well, but I just love their modern, simple minimalist look AND I love what they stand for as a company: earth friendly, responsible living, intentional design, reusable and replaceable (instead of just cheap throw away products), and safe for you! A few of my favorite products from Full Circle home is this bottle brush (we've used it so much since bringing baby Bodhi home), this duster, this dish scrub brush, this brush and dustpan set, these walnut dish scrubbers, and this microfiber mop.

Another brand we've loved for awhile is SOMA! We previously owned one of their water filter pitchers and loved how clean and fresh our water tasted, and they were so kind to send us some glass water bottles recently from their new product line and I can't say it enough how much I love these water bottles. I love drinking water out of glass bottles because I feel that it tastes better plus I don't have to worry that there are plastic particles leaking into my water when drinking out of glass bottles; the silicone sleeves that encase these not only protect the glass from breaks and cracks, but they also make them easier to hold onto AND they come in so many fun colors! We have two of the mint and two of the blush and they're simply perfect.
