SUMMER TREATS

SUMMER TREATS
On a hot, typical summer day, I’m sharing with you  simple and delightful recipes that will help you stay refresh on warm summer days.
My new love for PureLeaf teas is crazy. I wanted to start slowing down my daily coffee intake and was happy to find these Pure leaf ice teas.  Always conscious about having natural ingredients in our food and drinks when it becomes to make choices for my little family, I enjoy so much having these teas, brewed with real tea leaves and real ingredients, making this a real genuine tea experience.
I love enjoying ice-cream with the kiddos from time to time (aka everyday haha) but while working during the day sometimes from home, I was looking for a more refreshing treat with much less calories…. so here are some of my favorite of these  frozen iced tea pops.
Pure Leaf popsicles
FRUITY SWEET TEA ICE POPS
 
  • Insert berries in ice pops moulds ( I recommend smaller berries or small fruits cubes)
  • Rasberries, strawberries, blueberries, mango, peaches
  • Pour Pure leaf tea into moulds and insert little sticks/handles and put into the freezer.
  • Allow about 4-6 hours for your pops to freeze solid, of course depending of your moulds sizes.

ROMPERS – Real baby trend

Rompers

ROMPERS – Real baby clothes trend

You don’t need to be old or big to be fashionable. And fashion or trends does not always mean not comfortable. I believe in letting babies chill in a onesie, soft leggings, comfy rompers.. I strongly believe in comfort, softness and stretchy clothes above all else for kids, especially babies. So no,I don’t think so that stretchy jeans would work for my 8 month old baby boy. Also, the real “mini-me-look” like a real mini mom and mini dad seems to be ending. So welcome to real and comfy baby clothes, and to add to it, the romper look is also so so cute on toddlers too.

So I’ll be sharing with you our 6 favorite brands for rompers and we base our “favorite” with style, comfort, quality and style”

There are so many nice and stylish other brands so if you don’t see it below it’s probably just because we did not try them yet…
