Hi there!

Hey lovelies, welcome to SDB! I'm Natasha. I am a walking, talking mombie fueled by coffee. I am obsessed with shoes, all things glittery and/or sparkly, and I have an owl obsession. We talk about everything from motherhood, lifestyle, and all things inbetween. I am a mom of three kids and we reside in the Pacific Northwest. Thanks for tagging along! Now lets sit back and sip on a cup of coffee in the AM or wine in the PM and lets relax.

Kidpik: Autumn Review

It’s that time again! Another Kidpik review. We absolutely love Kidpik. I am so glad I decided to try it for Aurora. She looks forward to receiving her box every season. This one arrived in time for Back-to-School. Now that autumn is finally here, she can wear her new gear for the cooler weather. I meant to get this post up a while ago, but adjusting to new schedules has been a problem. Sorry for the delay friends. You can check out our summer and last falls reviews here and here

Kidpik is a clothing subscription box just for girls. Each pik is styled and personalized for your daughter and sent straight to your door. Shipping is free. In each pik, your daughter will receive up to 5-7 pieces of clothing, a pair of shoes, accessories, and a special surprise for your girl to keep. The average cost of a box is $98.00 + tax depending upon the season. I have noticed that autumn and winter piks cost a little more.

2 Cool Sequin Tee 

This top is darling. Rora loves the wild rose color of the garment. It’s pretty shiny too due to the sequins. The fabric is thick which makes it perfect for chilly autumn days ahead.

Lurex Taped Ruffle Sleeve Top + Lurex Side Taped Pant

This sweat outfit is adorable. It’s very thick and warm (Rora got a little hot in this outfit since it’s warm here). We love the colorful taped along the sleeves and the side of the pants. Such a cute and laidback look with a girlish feel due to the ruffles. It looks adorable with the glittery sneaks from her winter pik from last year.

Pink Roses Ruffle Dress

This dress is gorgeous! Ugh, Rora squealed when she saw this. The floral print and ruffled sleeves are so precious. It has an A-line cut and is very flattering on her petite figure. We absolutely love the sepia rose color. So pretty!

Jean Jacket

Who doesn’t love a good jean jacket? I was on a hunt looking for one and was so happy the sent her one for autumn. It will be perfect as the days get colder. It will be her wardrobe staple this year. It looks cute with everything.

Metallic Cross Body Bag

Every girl needs a bag. How lovely is this little metallic crossbody bag? I like how to coordinates with all her items in her pik. She can’t fit much in it but it’s cute! 

Baby Glitter Side Zip Sneaker

KidPik has the best shoes. We have been very pleased with all the shoes we have purchased for Aurora. These silver glitter sneakers with the zip-up side are amazing! She actually has a similar pair in pink from her winter pik. We ended up opting out of these silver babies this go around but they are so sparkly. We did love them!

Free Gift 

She received a cute bracelet that she absolutely loves. She’s learning to take care of her jewelry now that she’s older. She likes to store her bracelet on her music note holder. It’s a little big but she’ll grow into it. 

Grand Total: $163.50
KidPik Total: 114.45 with 30% off discount 

I hope you check out Kidpik for your special girl. We have loved our piks so far. I am always impressed with the quality of each garment and the love that goes into putting together each box for Aurora. Her stylist really pays attention to the things that she likes. 

Until next time friends. Thanks for visiting today. :)

Maple Holistics: Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo Review + Giveaway

This post is sponsored. Product was received for this collaboration. All thoughts and opinions are my own. 

I am all about good quality beauty products that are naturally derived and cruelty-free. It’s one of the reasons why I continue to purchase my shampoo and conditioner from Maple Holistics. I love that the company practices ethical buying and uses recycled packaging for their products. 

They were kind enough to send me their newest shampoo to try. All I can say is that the Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo smells nice and really works. It focuses on buildup removal, restores volume, boosts hair shine, and soothes the scalp. It has been a game-changer for me.

Apple Cider Vinegar is a key to keeping dry and itchy scalps at bay. Before trying this shampoo, I was doing an at-home Apple Cider Vinegar rinse in my hair care routine weekly. I suffer from a very dry and itchy scalp and it has helped prevent this with frequent use. What I personally love about the Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo is that it is enriched with natural ingredients like jojoba, argan, and sunflower oils. It’s great for all hair types, even color-treated hair. 

All Maple Holistics hair care products are suitable for everyone. They are free of icky sulfates, GMO’s, parabens and gluten. All of their products are made with the purest and highest quality ingredients to enhance your daily living experience from hygiene care and to overall body health. And all products are made right here in the U.S. 

If you are looking to try a new shampoo, this may be a good one for you to try. I have been pleased with the results.


Maple Holistics has an amazing line of hair care products and I am personally loving their Silk18 Shampoo and Conditioner duo as well as their newest Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo! All the hair care products that I have tried are amazing and I highly recommend that you get yourself a set!

With autumn approaching, I decided that I would like to do a giveaway of the Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo and Conditioner duo to one of you. 

I hope you enjoyed learning about this amazing brand and the products they have to offer. I will be selecting a winner at random from all the entries on Sunday, September 23rd at noon (PST). Please follow the giveaway rules and subscribe to the blog. 

Good luck! 

Until next time my friends. Have a great day! Happy Labor Day to you.
