It’s finally here, Summer is knocking at your door and ready to get started. I’ve found so great accessories that I think you’re going to love. From your head to your toes we here at Beauty Brite have you covered.
Let’s get this summer started!
What little one doesn’t love a dinosaur? I know my kids are crazy about any type of dino! From a young age imaging what life was like when dinos roamed the world, it is so much fun to use your imagination.

I’ll be the first one to say that I don’t take care of myself the way I should. Not for lack of wanting to but as a mom of four little ones six and under, I usually just don’t have the time. So I’ve been looking for ways to help me keep track of sleep, eating, and my everyday well-being. I usually try and make sure the kids are so well taken care of but I forget all about myself. So when I got the chance to try the GoBe2 by Healbe I was so excited at the prospect of something that goes everywhere with me and doesn’t take time away from my everyday life, it’s everything you need all in one place.
I’m the mom of four young kids but I also have a background in early childhood education, so I know how important enrichment is for growing minds. I’m always looking for fun ways to engage and have fun with my little ones. What is a better way to have fun and learn then with books and bathtime or water fun?
Finding the best enrichment for Your Little Ones
My children LOVE the water, no matter if its bath time or water play they are all about it. So I’ve come across a few items I’d love to share.
Let’s start with my kids favorite one, and I am going to have to invest in others from Marcus and Marcus because they all love this Squirting Silicone Bath Toy. What is my favorite thing about this toy? It is the fact that it can actually be taken apart and left to air dry keeping it from growing any gross things inside of it. We have gotten rid of so many bath or pool toys for just this reason, with Marcus and Marcus squirting silicone bath toy my little ones don’t have to worry about getting sick from any gross germs and it also comes in fun other shapes from lion to elephant. It’s so much fun.
Our next product is the Bright Basics ABC Tubbies from Educational Insights. With these floating foam shapes, leaning your animals and letters have never been so much FUN! There are 26 engaging designs that keep your little ones brain growing and using their imagination. It also helps hand and eye coordination fitting the shapes and letters together.
Another fun fine motor set of toys is from Learning Resources. The Sand & Water Fine Motor Set improves dexterity when sifting, spinning, and squirting to make hours of fun. A great pack along set for the beach or everyday play.
Our final water toy is the Yookidoo Musical Duck Race. This fun little toy pulls water from your tub to make a fun fountain and race track for your four little ducks. I always call my Little ones my little ducks in a row so this toy is perfect for them! Each little duck toy has its own fun spray. All my kids love this toy even my 5 month old loves to look at it.
You can’t have books, babies, and baths without the BOOKS! So i’ve found some super fun first learning books for your little ones. Reading is so important in our family and it starts at a young age. My oldest is six and is learning to read at school and loves reading to her smaller siblings. She was excited that she can read these books. Sesame Street: 5 Little Rubber Duckies and 10,9,8…Owls Up Late are some amazing first reads.
My son loved counting all the duckies and we even taught him to sing the song, now any time he sees the book he yells ” Ernie loves his duckies mommy!” Grab your copy and learn with Ernie and all his Sesame friends. You will love Sesame Stree: 5 Little Rubber Duckies too.
In 10,9,8… Owls Up Late you countdown to bedtime. My oldest loves reading it to her brothers and sisters to help with getting everyone calmed down. Its a great family book about some little owls who need to go to sleep. These are some great book choices for you little ones of all ages.
Bringing play and learning together, builds stronger children for tomorrow.
How do you help your kids build a brighter future?
As the mom of four little ones under six and under I’m bad about not taking the time to do things for myself, or I don’t always put myself first. I’ve decided that lately, I needed to take time to change that because as a parent I’m important too.
How can I make sure to treat myself?
Spring is here and that means it’s time to clean out the old and in with the new. For me, that means getting some new must-have items to last the new year and make me feel refreshed. I’m always looking for new things that will help me do this, and I’ve found some great items that I’d love to share, so let us get started.
Who doesn’t love an adorable little puppy dog? Well just like any other kids their age my children sure love any puppy dog they see. Any time we are out at the park we always make a game to see who can spot the most dogs and what kind they are. We even have three dogs of our own. So what a better movie than the new Puppy Dog Pals: Vol. 1 (DVD).
Puppy Dog Pals are on a MISSION!
I’m getting so tired and fed up with this cold weather and all I want is to be whisked away to somewhere nice and hot. I’m dreaming of leaving these wet and snowy days in the past. I’m the kind of gal that loves it hot and enjoys everything summer. So I’ve finally found a way to get that little bit of summer in the middle of winter.
One of my favorite things to do is draw a nice, hot, steamy bath and soak until all my cares have vanished and with the help of SoftSoap Earths Blend, I can do just that! Getting clean has never smelled so good. The new Earth Blends smell AMAZING! There are three different scents to the Earths Blend line: Pink Grapefruit & Cucumber, Pomegranate & Plum, Coconut & Fig. My favorite is the Pink Grapefruit & Cucumber. It’s the perfect mix of scents and leaves you feeling super clean…. [read more]
I’m the mother of four children, ages ranging from six years old to three months. I always thought that breastfeeding would be easy. I never imagined things wouldn’t go according to plan. With my first two children I really didn’t have the knowledge that I needed to move forward, so when things got hard I just gave up and used formula.
(First and foremost I’d like to say that I have no problem with formula, I honestly and fully believe that FED is best. So just wanted to say there is no mommy shaming in this post! )… [read more]
