New SISSY + MARLEY Wallpaper

Some of favorite room tours on the blog are from the talented group at SISSY + MARLEY. The main feature that really stands out in their spaces is their use of modern wallpaper. Not surprisingly, they usually use their own wallpaper patterns and now they have even more to choose from! The SISSY + MARLEY for Jill Malek collection now features four new designs.

Drops is available in Rain (shown), Charcoal, Pink and Silver.

Fun with Food

Even easier than cutting their food up with cookie cutters or shaping it in Japanese bento molds, these plates and dishes really are worth it for that bit of joy and fun that they add to mealtime.

My favorite is Dinner Winner from Fred and Friends. It’s a board game with a treat as a prize at the end. $20

Also from Fred and Friends, the Food Face dinner plate featured endless creative possibilities! $16 Fred and Friends Food Face dinner plate

The customized Dress Up Plates from Little Me have cookie cutter shapes for the clothes so you can really go all out with the mealtime prep. Customize a boy or girl. These make amazing gifts!

From Constructive Eating, this plate isn’t as fancy, but the utensils really amp up the fun factor. $33

I can vouch for the fact that fun dishes make memories in childhood. We had the boy and girl set of these stacking dishes when I was little.

Nowadays, you can delight your kids with these stacking sets from Wee Gallery. $40

Bestnest: Beautiful Cosleeping Option to Buy or Rent

I know everyone is clamoring for a co-sleeping option that will look beautiful in their bedroom, and since we’re out of luck with the Culla Belly co-sleeper, I’m going to recommend the Bednest. Read the information on their website to see all the reasons why the Bestnest is amazing, like the SafeBridge side panel, adjustable height, safety assurances and ease of setup. But you just need to get a look at it to know that you want one.

bednest

The price is high at $500, especially since this is something you’re only going to use for about 6 months, but they’ve already thought of that. You can RENT the Bednest for 6 months for $200! Genius.

There’s also a special right now with the code USrental for up to 7 months with the Bednest, a new mattress, two white fitted sheets and free shipping and returns for $179.
