Barbie Evolved!

Way back in October, I wrote a welcome back to Barbie. The ad campaign was pure genius and showed Barbie as a powerful figure for girls to look up to. The were slowly trying to eliminate the idea that to love Barbie you had to mold yourself to her unrealistic set of body standards.

Barbie has released 3 new body designs now! Cue my happy dance... for a ... get ready for it... CURVY BARBIE!!

Curvy barbie

A doll with hips and a booty-- a doll who looks like me.  I'm not looking to start a fight on the acceptance of obesity in our society; instead I'm going to get excited that my 4 year old can see various bodies all be acceptable for her dolls.

Barbie also released their petite and tall dolls.

They are adorable little fashionistas and I'm excited to add a few to my daughters collection, although I wonder how complicated it will get buying outfits for them all... will their outfits be exclusive to their size?

You can preorder the dolls here! Will you be adding a few new body types to your collection?

Unless you live under a rock, you know that the East Coast got hit hard with snow. Last weekend we also had snow so we are getting up there ina ccumulation! The kids are absolutely in love with the snow. Granted they take 20 minutes to get dressed and ready, and then are cold after 5 minutes outside!

While we made snow angels and a sad little snowman, I think they need a sled! After playing outside, we always head in for cocoa and either homemade cookies or movie snuggles.

Hopefully everyone stayed warm! How do you celebrate snow?

New Lilly Pulitzer Prints!

It's no secret that I'm a huge Lilly Pulitzer fan.  And while I didn't shop this month's After Party Sale, I am having some major print envy with their three newest releases so I'll be spend happy during the August sale!

While I love Lilly, there are lots of prints that I like but will never own. Some are simply too bright for my job and personality.  I have no desire to walk around work with flamingos sprayed across my chest. Neon pink and orange are not my thing, I stick to kelly greens, blues and lilacs so imagine my excitement when I saw that the three new prints were all on a bluish purple background!

La Playa

Unlike some of the brighter, more obvious prints, these are so perfect for the spring and look almost floral.  I may break my rule of online discount Lilly and buy these right off the rack so I don't miss out on them! Which is your favorite?
