Summer KidPik Life Saver!

For those of you who have been following us, you know my love for Kidpik for my daughter. For those who are new to Rockstar Moms, well you are in for a treat!

In an effort to help make our very busy Mom lives as easy as I can, Knowing that every season my Isabella will be receiving this box full of super fun fashion, shoes, and accessories is a life saver. I don’t always have the time to keep up with her growth spirts and who doesn’t love a good subscription box!?  The fun and suspense of seeing what’s inside!

When we found Kidpik, a subscription box for girls sizes 4-16, we just HAD to try it. We have been subscribing to Kidpik now for about 3 years and absolutely love it!  It is so much fun for her to open and know that if she loves the items she can keep them and if she does not, well then, they can be returned with no obligation to anything. Best part is the shipping is free and free for the returns too!

First, let’s start with how Kidpik works:

When you go to the Kidpik site you set up an account.  You will need to enter things, such as, address, credit card info, when you would like to receive your picks.  You can receive them as little as once per year or as often as 1 per month! Then your daughter will get to set up her profile (this is the fun part).  She will be able to control telling Kidpik what her favorite colors are, rank how “sparkly” she is, choose from pre-set outfits what she likes the best, and also what stores she likes to shop at.  This helps them choose the picks for her boxes that fit her style. She will need to update this profile for each season and you just need to remember to update her sizes as she grows!

It is very important to note that there is zero obligation to keep anything you receive in your box.  There are also no shipping fees to receive or return. You can keep everything, pick and choose what you want to keep , or send it all back!

In an average box you will receive on 7 items, that make about 4-5 outfits.  This may include dresses, skirts, pants, tops, shoes, accessories, and always a “Gift for you” that you can keep even if you send everything else back.

The box will arrive looking like this:

 

It will be addressed to your daughter.  It is sooooo exciting for Isabella when she comes home from school and sees this box at our door step!

When she opens the box everything is wrapped up beautifully and some items are in these amazing reusable drawstring bags (which I use when we travel for toiletries or shoes).

Isabella’s box came with a pair of cut off denim shorts, a T-shirt , 1 skirt, 1 dress, a bathing suit (Bella’s fab item), pair of ADORABLE sandals, a belt bag and her “gift” of a super secure LOVE bracelet or she choose to wear it as an anklet. In the past the “gift” has been patches, pins, hair ties, or even jewelry. Oh! Another super fun item that came in this box is this magazine! It is full of articles, games, puzzles, and beauty diy’s.

Her try on session! Needless to say she is keeping everything, again!!

Now for the details:

The price points for this box ranged from $9.99 for the Belt bag to $29.50 for the dress.  A very important note is that if you keep everything you get 30% off the total purchase, and this is for every box.  So to keep this entire box will be $102. We received 7 items so that is $14.57 per item, on average.

Another very important note is that if you do not want to keep all the items but, sometimes, it is less expensive to buy everything and get the 30% off.  You can donate the items you do not want to keep by paying for everything, sending back the item you do not want to keep in the pre-paid shipment bag and Kidpik will donate the items to girls in need in the community around them.

From what I have seen so far in the 3 years we have been receiving boxes is that this company delivers quality clothing at a great value and cares about the community around them.

Oh!! One more very important note is that the actual boxes are great to reuse for absolutely anything.  Isabella uses them to store her dolls, shopkins, play school supplies……the options are endless!😁

Target Find Friday: Swimwear for the kids- at a great value

Four weeks till we are poolside for the first time this season! My kids are ready with their new swimwear, are yours? Of course Target came through with another win! I can’t rave enough about their swimsuits. They are my go-to each year.

The fit is great. They offer different silhouettes for girls which helps when different cuts will fit my daughter better than others. My son is on the tall and skinny side and the board shorts stay up great even when he’s jumping off the diving board.

Quality and value is top notch. I wash them in garment bags in the washer and air dry. They hold up all season. The kids out grow them before the suits start to look too worn. 

I highly recommend that you head on over to Target.com and stock up for the summer. Many styles are on sale! So the kids will look adorable and you’ll know you got a great value!

Here are their favorite looks from last summer and their picks for this year:

Violette and Mason last summer at the beach

Top picks for Violette this year

Bought this one again this year with a matching cover-up and they came out with a 2nd print option. So adorable!

Also tried two new silhouettes with another cute cover-up

Top picks for Mason this year (he loved all the bright colors and animal themes)

And they came back with his favorite from last year so I picked up the next size.

Dive in and enjoy the warm weather!

Holiday, Kids

Winter Concert #OOTD

It’s that time of year when all the kids have Holiday/Winter Concerts!  Not sure if this has happened to anyone else, but I hate when I “missed” the flyer detailing what the dress code is for the concert and then find it 3 days before the concert…….  Yep, that’s what happened here!  To make things worse she does not have any of it in her wardrobe that fits……. This concert is calling for 2 outfits, a festive outfit for during the day concert for the other students and a black & white outfit for the evening concert for the parents.  Really!!  Why two different outfits??

Anyway, Target to the rescue!!  When can’t you count on Target?! Their Cat & Jack line for girls is everything!  I love that they are so fashion forward and also have an amazing basics area for leggings & tees. They also offer a great selection of socks and underwear.

So, as I said above, they really came through for us to be concert ready this week.  See Bella’s outfit choices below.

My experience with Cat & Jack has been nothing less than it is quality clothing at a great value for my kids.  Knowing that Target has this brand that I can rely on in a pinch is comforting to a busy mom on the go like myself!
