WEEKEND SHOPPING: FUN FINDS FOR THE KIDDOS

It's Saturday, the sun is shining and the sales are ON!!! After celebrating a lazy long weekend here in Canada last weekend, this weekend is about getting set up for the summer. We still have another month of school but I love to be prepared so that the most time possible is spent lazing with the kids once the holidays hit.

Some of our favourite shops have great sales this weekend so it's the perfect time to think ahead, whether it's adding some Spring finds to the kids rooms, fresh pillows to your patio or a lighter quilt for those hot summer nights. 

I'm featuring some favourite finds for breezy summer days with the kids from Serena & Lily (use code SUMMERDAYS for 20% off!) in this board to give you a pulled together look for a covered outdoor area and have added more sites below with codes to shop the sale!

For simple modern rugs and my favourite storage bins! Use code HOORAY for 20% off.

Coyuchi:
If you don't know this site, it's my go-to for clients looking for organic linens. The quality is high, the toxins are low and there is a new section just for kids. Love this organic cotton (inside and out) comforter for summer nights. 20% off certain items.

McGee & Co:
SO many amazing finds from rugs to pillows to faux greenery (perfect for kids bedrooms & bathrooms!). Use code SUMMERSALE for 20% off.

Lulu & Georgia:
Their new kids section has some great finds, including this gold mesh lamp that is both safe AND functional for kids rooms! From 15%-25% off depending on what you spend, this is a good one!

Noble Carriage:
With a big focus on organic products, this small shop carries the adorable Holdie doll house that I can't find anywhere in Canada. Use code MEMORIAL for 20% off.

Crate & Kids:
Looking to make a furniture purchase for your kids? This is the place. Code SAVE15 will get you 15% off all full priced items.

Etsy:
Etsy is my favourite place for unique finds from handmade shops. Lots of small makers have sales this weekend. To find sales on shops near you, enter 'sale' into the search bar and then set a custom location. It's a great way to find sales this weekend and throughout the whole year!

Hope you have a memory-making weekend whether it is a long one or not.

8 OF THE BEST PLAY KITCHENS FOR TODDLERS

 Milton and Goose wooden toddler play kitchen 

Purchasing a play kitchen almost feels like a parenting rite of passage. It’s the one toy set you’re guaranteed to find in nearly every home with a toddler, but it’s not without good reason. Play kitchens deliver a perfect outlet for imaginative play, and of course, there’s nothing more adorable than kiddos “cooking” up dinner alongside Mom and Dad.

But before you secretly cringe at the idea of adding another toy set into your thoughtfully designed home, rest assured that play kitchens don’t have to be a total eyesore. In fact, I’ve searched the web and rounded up nine pint-sized kitchens you’ll actually want to show off in any part of your home.

One. | Leave it to Milton & Goose to bridge the gap between style and function with the cutest kitchen featuring all the bells and whistles. Not only is it made from eco-friendly woods, but this kitchen includes a miniature farmhouse sink and a magnetic chalkboard for your little’s weekly menus.

Three. | Fit for a little gourmand, this toddler kitchen boasts warm grey cabinetry and gold hardware. The gas switch is rotatable and I love that there is a little clock for kids to learn how to tell time!
