One of my favorite parts of the day with Olive are meal and snack times. These moments we really get to sing, talk and learn so much from each other. I read books and it's the most beautiful thing to see how much she has grown. I started with baby led feeding with Olive and it worked out perfectly for us. She was such a good eater and still is to this day and still loves being able to learn and explore new foods. I did some reviews on high chairs and tested out a few before deciding on the IKEA Antilop highchair. I LOVED the simpleness and stylish factor of this highchair. It was lightweight and a beautiful white color and I knew it wouldn't be a distraction in the home but an actual furniture piece added to our dining room. How about that price? Seriously it was only $19.99 including the tray and you definitely can't beat that price. I have fallen in love with the functionality of this highchair. It's super easy to clean, there's no upholstery to have to wash, no creases where food can hide or get stuck in and so lightweight. A few cons overtime though did have me think twice often. The tray we could not remove, it was as if it were stuck or built to never come out after assembling it. I also was afraid that it was too hard or not comfortable enough for her. 

Thats when I discovered Yeahbabygoods!! This was an answer to my few concerns with the IKEA Antilop highchair. Yeahbabygoods is an adorable shop that sells IKEA highchair silicone replacement mats and cushion covers. I literally could not wait to get my hands on these items for our daily meals and snacks. One thing that did get tiring with not having a removable tray was the clean up. It was time consuming and with a baby led weaning Mama I needed simplicity. Olive is tiny and I worried that the highchair may be too uncomfortable at times and I was always looking for something to add comfort for her but I never could find something stylish. Yeahbabygoods products are beyond what I ever expected. The colors are gorgeous and fabrics they have to offer are so stylish and easy to keep clean.

The silicone placemats took away all my concerns with clean up. Clean up is such a breeze now and these mats clean instantly with warm water and a little soap. She loves spaghetti night and sometimes it can get so messy. I love that all I have to do is take the mat and rinse it and I'm done nothing else! Did I mention the color options?! They are gorgeous! I LOVE the pink one they sell but I actually went with the soft mint. I was a little worried with it being a light color and how well it would wash and if it would stain but it stays so clean and trust me it gets so much food on it. The color is beautiful and I definitely am so pleased with how pretty it is and how quickly it dries too! I'm also so beyond excited to bring all of you an amazing 15% off discount on all high chair accessories from Yeahbabygoods!!! YES!! This is a wonderful opportunity for you to experience these amazing products for your sweet little one! Just use the code >> JUPEANDOLIVE15 <<

One of my favorite ways to clean the IKEA Antilop high chair is using Young Living household cleaner spray with a little warm water. It instantly removes all food, stains, and messes left behind. I LOVE the smell and knowing I'm not using any harsh chemicals around where my baby eats brings so much happiness to this Mama. I bought a 16oz amber glass spray bottle and I put 1 cap full of household cleaner with 3 cups of warm water in the spray bottle. I use this spray not only to clean all baby things but our entire house. It's so refreshing and keeps everything dirt free.

Cleaning the silicone mat is so simple. Honestly warm water will remove almost all messes most of the time but I do love to scrub it just a little bit using the Young Living thieves dish soap + the honest plant-based dish brush.  Young living's thieves dish soap is free of chemicals, dyes, and synthetics and the scent is amazing. It works so well with the honest dish brush. The bamboo handle is so soft and the bristles on this dish brush is made from plants-based bristles. Not only is this brush designed so beautiful but I bought it for just baby. I use it to clean all of Olive's baby feeding pieces. I cannot praise enough of how this highchair and these beautiful lovely accessories have made our everyday so simple. I adore products that make me so happy to use them over and over again. If you have a little one and want a simple, affordable and stylish lifestyle these are the perfect products!

I absolutely love all holidays but this past 4th of July I have come to realize it is one of my favorites! Whether it was going out with friends on their yacht, our island adventures, or the delicious food? Family and friends and this holiday bring so much joy. It was so beautiful to see the joy in her eyes of excitement of all of our adventures.

It's so crazy to think my sweet daughter will have so many different memories than I did when I was a child. I grew up in the country, splashing in creeks, in the dirt and running barefoot in the fresh cut grass. Where she will grow up seeking treasures by the sea, salty hair and sun kissed toes. The ocean breeze forever in her heart and the calming of the warmth and sea in her soul. We may never have seasons but we have beauty that sometimes words can not even describe. She is forever our ocean baby and when we are by the sea her heart bursts with love for everything nature gives. It's so beautiful to see. 

I know I rave so much about our bow subscription company Little Poppy Co. but seriously they totally outdid themselves for this 4th of July holiday. My heart exploded with excitement when I saw the leather bows and the beautiful fabric red design bow. Honestly they made my accessories for Olive's holiday weekend such a breeze. I mix matched them with every outfit and I couldn't stop putting them on her. Now that she is getting a little older I changed my order to the clips and I have to say I ADORE them! They were one of my favorite things for this 4th of July!

We had so much fun with family on the 4th and spent time outside enjoying the hot weather cooling off with those adorable bomb pop popsicles. We brought out the sparklers but she was such a sleepy babe from the busy weekend that we didn't make it to the big show so we watched from our front yard while she was fast asleep. Hoping next year we can keep her up! I love my tribe hard and holidays seem to know how to burst my emotions of more love than I ever thought could be possible. 

I truly hope you had a very special weekend and although we still have lots of time for more bbq, watermelon, catching fireflies, ice cream, swimming, sprinklers and lots of those special summer memories I seriously can't wait for sweater weather {which for us seems forever away but seriously I LOVE fall}.

Happy Father's Day Weekend! We have had such a fun week enjoying the sunshine, spending time with other Mama's and exploring new places. I am loving summer and all the adventures it has given us. 

We absolutely love books in our house and I want to talk about one of my absolute favorite books we've had since she was 9 months old. It's called First Words by Thomas Nelson. I truly believe her vocabulary is so high because this is one of our everyday reads. It has some of the cutest illustrations and I adore spending time going over each page teaching her all about animals, food, and other fun things. It's perfect as we are out I refer to the book and it's images and sounds. It is a definite must have or perfect to give for a special gift to any little one. You can find it here. and it is only $10 

We are so ready to celebrate this weekend honoring all Father's and especially ours. We will be working on our diy gifts today and we can't wait to spend a special weekend together. How beautiful is this image above from Free Babes Handmade of her husband and sweet daughter. What a beautiful moment captured wearing our Le Père design in heather gray. If you are still looking for that special gift our le père design is perfect and comes in either heather gray or classic white. You can find it here in our shop! Enjoy your weekend, Xo

Adventures with free babes handmade + giveaway

 

Being a Mother with a little one so curious to our earth is one of the most absolutely rewarding experiences I have ever dreamed to dream and be able to capture in my heart. Their love to explore and energy is truly my muse as I embrace this new pitter patter, hand holding, snuggling love that is so unreal words could not even begin to share how my heart has grown just within last few months after Oliviene's first birthday. Although my baby wearing days are still many the idea to adventure with this little sweet girlfriend of mine could never replace even that first best friend friendship feel. I dream of us skipping in fields, gazing at stars, and traveling the world as our future unfolds. Dreaming is big at this time for the both of us and our everyday is a new and memories at the seconds that will forever be on my heart. 

I am so delighted with heart to share with you one of my most precious accessory brands that has made my heart skip a beat ever since I found out I was having a girl. This brand explodes with the most delicate details and fabrics of perfection that changes as our mother earth herself brings us the beauty of her strengths. When I knew I was having a girl I was looking for custom pieces of art that our little miss Olive could wear and grow with. My Mother always taught us traditions and kept some of the most precious things for us to cherish and heirlooms to pass on to our very own sweet babes one day. Free Babes Handmade are our pieces to cherish, explore with and hopefully one day be an heirloom my Olive can share with her lovely babes. Free Babes Handmade have made our adventures filled with fashionable statements and the most adoring conversation starters. The quality of craft that is created into each piece is made with pure love!

jupe & olive french inspired design branding

 

Hello loves! I am beyond joyous to announce our new french inspired design branding. These designs are tailored to our Mother's, Papa's and our sweet little one's. Chic tees with french inspiration is my heart for creating jupe & olive designs. Some history into our designs are my husband lived overseas and has a huge heart for the french language as he grew up learning and becoming fluent in French. I am learning everyday and our sweet daughter, Olive is as well! Another language you may find time to time in jupe & Olive designs is the thai language. Olive's Grandmother is from Thailand and is also teaching her the thai language. Her favorite thai words at the moment are júp júp's. This means kiss kiss in thai! I also designed la mère (the mother) + le père (the father) to represent the heart and gift we have been given to take on such a beautiful role for our little love's. Xo
