Lovely Lazy Sunday

 

Today me and Lila had a girls morning and then we met up with Hubs and his friends for a yummy treat of hot cocoa ice cream. A lovely lazy Sunday if I do say so. I hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Toddler Fashion Favorites with Wilshire + Cooper

Dress // Shoes // Tote

Hi Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you my new favorite online store to shop for Lila. I love shopping online for her because if I find something I think like, I can very quickly see how others are styling it on Instagram and that helps a lot when everything toddler sized is so stinking cute and I can’t decide. I ordered her a few pieces from one of my favorite brands and in these photos she is wearing the dress. I ordered it size 18-24 months even though she is in 2T and as you can tell from the photos it fits her great even though it’s one size small. The dress is naturally suppose to be a bit flowy, so I love that instead it is fitted. It’s easily my favorite piece in her closet right now.

I got her dress from Wilshire + Cooper.  They are a new online destination for designer kids appeal and accessories, offering unique and designer brands from all over the world. The range is from handmade to runway fashion, so there is something for everyone. With one browse you’ll recognize some of your favorite brands and find brands that you can’t believe you didn’t know existed. I love that all my favorites are now in one place at Wilshire + Cooper. You can get 15% off your entire order with code: OHHELLO15

Check on my Instagram for how I style the rest of the pieces I got her. Have a great week!

Easter at The Langham Pasadena

Egg Hunt

Last year Lila had her first real experience with attending egg hunts and immediately we knew that she had some special feelings for Easter. Since that day we’ve kept a basket of easter eggs in her room and she has played with them consistently all year long, so much so that she has opening them down to such a science that we can’t get them closed again fast enough for her. The most special egg hunt for her was undoubtedly the one that took place at the Langham, and it seemed like every time she played with her eggs throughout the year we talked about going there again, so we knew as it came around the corner we had to make it a tradition for our family.

 

This year Lila appreciated the egg hunt even more, and displayed her skills like a pro when she got out on the lawn. The only thing that held her back was the size of her basket which was quickly overflowing. She really made the most of it and enjoyed every minute. I have no doubt that the egg hunt at the Langham is the best not only in Pasadena, but anywhere that I have ever been. Everything about it is perfect from the location to the eggs and their prizes, and even the adorable outfits on all of the little ones, this egg hunt is truly on another level.

 

Petting Zoo + Train Ride

In the immediate vicinity of the egg hunt there were so many fun things going on that were all geared for the little ones. The petting zoo they coordinate is seriously ADORABLE! They not only have bunnies and chickens, but sheep, baby goats, ducks, piglets, and a baby cow! Lila couldn’t get enough of the baby bunnies and spent way too long just petting them and talking to them like she does with her stuffed animals at home. Right next to the petting zoo they had the best Easter Bunny who was being so cute with all of the kids that were there, so when the line wasn’t too long we ran over so that Lila could get a photo with him. Usually she is a little bit skeptical of costumed characters at first and doesn’t like to get too close, but she ran right up to him and gave him a huge hug for the better part of a minute and wouldn’t let him go. Did I mention yet that this kid loves Easter and can’t get enough of the Langham?

To top off all of the activities on the lawn they have badminton, croquet, and a full on train ride! Last year we had a blast riding the train as a family and Lila remembered it well because she was asking for the train ride before it was even in sight. Long story made very short we rode that train somewhere between 8 and 10 times throughout the morning and you know what, it never got old! Lila was so excited and loved riding in a different color car each time, she couldn’t get enough of the conductor and appreciated it every time he made a “toot toot”.

 

Brunch

If there was one part of our stay that I have to admit I was most excited for, it was the brunch. What can I say, I’m a sucker for a waffle bar. As excited as I was and as high as my expectations were, the brunch was even better. Every single thing I tasted was delectable from the sushi and seafood bar, to the omelette station and the expansive table of breakfast foods. Sometimes I struggle with buffet style dining because I feel like they do an okay job at a lot of dishes, but don’t really have a focus. That was absolutely not the case here, it was as if they had one chef devoted to each particular dish and nothing felt like it was just a filler.

Beyond all of the amazing options in the main dining room they had the most adorable selection of pastries and an entire section of foods for kids. The kids corner was not only perfect for Lila’s taste buds, but they even had it set up low to the ground so that she was able to feel involved with the selection. Their whole set up was genius because Lila ate more in one sitting than I have ever seen her eat, and she’s an amazing little eater!

Of course the literal icing on the cake was the gigantic display of incredible desserts. I thought I was too full from the several plates I had already eaten to even think about sweets, but after one look I found myself getting one of everything to try, and making a couple of quick trips back to the chocolate fountain for another skewer of strawberries. I know I shouldn’t have, but hey, Easter only comes once a year and, well, I deserve it!

 

 

All in all we could not have imagined a better way to spend easter as a family than what we actually experienced at the Langham. The hotel is like a palace from my dreams, Lila literally referred to it as her “beautiful castle: throughout our entire stay and said “were homeeee” every time we walked into our room. The staff were amazing, the food was fantastic, the scenery was breathtaking, the mattress was heavenly, the people were friendly, and Easter was magical because of it. The Langham can count on seeing us again next year, and the next, and every one after that.

*A very special thank you to the Langham Pasadena for hosting us this weekend.

Valentine’s Day Gifts 2017

Hi everyone!

Since Valentines Day is quickly approaching I wanted to share with you a few of my favorite things I got for Jake and Lila. I don’t know what our plans are for Valentine’s Day yet, but as long as I am eating chocolate throughout day I will be happy. Haha.

This year I signed Jake up for Atlas Coffee Club, a coffee of the month club that sends you a bag of amazing coffee from around the world to your doorstep once a month. He loves trying different types of coffees and I thought this would be a cool way for him to do that. I love giving subscriptions as gifts because it’s not just one present, it’s several presents. Plus who doesn’t love getting happy mail?

For Lila I am making a cute basket of goodies for her and my favorite things I got were a few Moxfords from Sweet n Swag and some new bows from Zozu Baby. I got her the February Bow Pack as well as a couple Explorer Bows. I can’t wait to see her face when she wake up to these goodies in a basket stuffed to the brim with candy.

I hope everyone has a fantastic Valentine’s Day this week!
