Standard

IMG_8325Hard to believe that my youngest is no longer a baby and will be turning two next month!

Standard

229001307378621I’ve been a blogger for nearly three years and a mom for seven so I know a lot about baby gear: what’s a must-have, what you can skip and which brands are worth the extra cost. I’m always on the lookout for gear that’s ground-breaking and inventive. And if it looks good – that’s a big plus in my book. Nuna is a multi-award-winning company from the Netherlands that focuses on products that are both stylish and functional.
