Beauty Brite Disclosure

It’s finally here, Spring is in full force and I’m loving the warmer weather and longer days. I’m enjoying spending the evening outside with the kids while they are able to play outside until sunset on the swings. The crisp mornings giving way to plenty of sunshine and joy. I’m the mother of four little ones, three girls and one little boy who are my entire world. I constantly look for fun and new clothes to set them apart. I’ve found the perfect Spring fashion to make your child bloom!

Spring into fashion!

A great selection for everyone in the family at great pricing, you will be sure to love this company as much as we do. I can’t wait to share some of our favorite outfits with you.

Hot Palms Topanga Tank Top
Paros Romper

Two of our favorite pieces are the Hot Palms Topanga Tank Top and the Paros Romper. These two items are sure to set your spring into bloom. The bright pinks and oranges are perfect for standing out in a crowd. I love how much coverage these pieces have because even though the days are getting warmer you need coverage to keep your little ones protected.

Spotty Leopard Taylor TBar Shoes

Another must for any clothing, most importantly for little ones is comfort. Ever have a child that has something that isn’t comfortable, It’s like the world is ending. The complaining and whining are pretty much like constant torture. So comfort is a must. The soft fabrics are perfect for little skin that is sensitive. The Spotty Leopard Taylor TBars Shoes are so soft and comfortable for any child. My youngest is 17 months and has just mastered walking. These shoes match any outfit and are always the shoes she brings me to put on her now.

Autism: What I Wish I Knew Then

Autism What I Wish I Knew Then
Beauty Brite Disclosure

Autism. It’s just a word. A diagnosis. But i look back today and remember the fear this embarked in me when I first heard the word Autism in relation to my child. I have no idea why except the fact that the potential diagnosis of Autism wasn’t something I expected to hear. I didn’t expect to hear Autism when I took my son for his 15 month wellness visit and I mentioned a lack of words. He didn’t talk much at all then. A few babbles and that was it. Before that moment, I don’t even recall knowing anything about Autism. Just that in my eyes it meant there was something “wrong” with my child. A term I had heard in passing but dismissed as something that doesn’t happen to people like me. I also didn’t know then, that Autism is a word not the end of the world.
