Simple Wishes - Hands Free Breastpump Bra Review

When I had my son I tried using a breastpump but it was aggravating to use and I felt like I had no hands to do anything else, especially hold my baby. I wish I had come across Simple Wishes hands free breastpump bra. This great product allows you to hook up to a breastpump and let go, letting you do whatever else it is you need to accomplish like soothe your baby, type on the computer or make your grocery list.

Choosing a nursing bra can sometimes be a challenge since a woman’s body changes frequently due to a fluctuation in milk supply. Simple Wishes has a Velcro panel in the back that allows the bra to change sizes over and over again. As much as ten inches can be added to the ribcage area.

A hands-free breastpump bra might sound flimsy, like the pump could come off frequently, leak, etc. Simple Wishes has four layers of fabric that not only keeps a tight seal on the bottles but allows for modest pumping. You can hook up to the pump without having to unhook the bra or remove any clothing. You can even use the bra as a strapless version or with the straps for support.

This definitely seems like a product I will want on hand when another little one comes into our family. I know how aggravating pumping was the first time, I can’t imagine doing it while I have my son running around as well as a newborn to take care of. You can visit for more information or to order. A sizing chart is available to help you figure out your appropriate size. I found the chart is very true to size.

2trUe- Etsy Shop Review

I love to support people who have created their own profession for themselves and are inspired to do what they love. That's why I think Etsy is a great site. Some of the shops on there can provide you with really great products that are not only handmade but so unique that they'll be better than anything you can find in retail stores. 2trUe is run by Maggie K and the shop features handmade headbands that are so much better than ones you will find anywhere else.

Maggie has been a crafter and an entrepreneur since childhood and her Etsy shop has developed into a lucrative venture that comes straight from her roots of running a little lemonade stand. The headbands are made from a really nice fabric and comes in a variety of colors. I like the product because it fits much better than the cheaper bands I've purchased from say, Walmart or Target. The underside of the band is elastic with a thin band that holds the top of the band snug in place. I always find myself adjusting my headband at the gym or in yoga numerous times because it slides back on my head constantly. I didn't have this problem with Maggie's band.

You can visit for more information or to shop around for your very own headband. Bands are $10 which is quite affordable for a product that you'll find yourself using a lot. It's great for working out or even just laying around on the weekend on days when you don't feel like doing your hair.

Be Present- Yoga Clothing Review

I don't know what it is about yoga clothing but it's so darn comfortable. I don't care if there's no yoga class that day there's nothing better than throwing on a pair of yoga pants and a comfy t-shirt. Oh heck, who cares if you've never done yoga a day in your life. Who really needs to know!? Throw on some yoga gear and wear it well.

I'm always on the lookout for some great yoga clothing. I practice yoga regularly and have made it a big part of my life but hey, the clothing is so comfortable you can't beat it even if all I'm doing is running to the grocery store or running some other random errands. Be Present yoga clothing makes some really great pieces that are comfy, cute and also have purpose if you're a fellow yogi.

This is their newest release, the Vote shirt featuring the Om logo. Om being a very common sound or vibration that is used for meditative purposes either with or without yoga.

Sizes run a little big I found so you might want to keep that in mind. A t-shirt, including their newest Vote style will run you about $30 or so. The fabric is pretty comfortable and lightweight. Men's and women's styles are available on

Addriya - Yoga Review

My son is 4 years old and he's very interested in anything and everything he can get his hands on. When mommy says she's going to yoga every Sunday he wants to know exactly what that is beyond the fact that he gets to hang out with daddy and do fun things like watch cartoons until I come home. I recently received a set of yoga cards for kids from Addriya and was surprised when my son opened them up and was very interested in what was going on with the pictures. Each card has a different yoga pose on it and they have easier and more kid-friendly names on them. My son was very interested in the colorful cards and wanted me to work with him so he could try out the poses.

ABC Yoga Cards For Kids are a great product for little yogis in training. Kids truly are born with an amazing sense of flexibility. It's only as we get older that we lose that flexibility when it's not being utilized. Learning yoga at a young age actually helps lead a happy and healthy life. I was very impressed to see how good my son was at doing a number of the poses and he insists we take a Mommy and Me yoga class this fall. A proud moment for this mama and yogi :)
