Personalized Books for Your Kids with Mumablue

Personalized Stories for Your Kids with Mumablue (in English y Español)  | Live Colorful

I love children’s books! There is something so innocent, fun and imaginative about them. My favorite part about reading books with my toddler is listening to his perspective of the story. The other day we were reading a book about cars and colors, but the only thing he could see was the kid behind one of the cars that were eating an ice cream. So I invented the whole story and made it about ice cream, and it was awesome!

If you get excited in the children’s book section when you walk in bookstores, you are probably going to love Mumablue as much as us. They contacted me a few months ago, to check out their service and I honestly felt in love with it. We have now two different personalized books about Jax, my toddler. They are also great and special birthday gifts!

My favorite part is the “create your story” process, especially being able to personalize Jaxon’s appearance and add a picture and a dedication at the end of the book. Jaxon’s hair has changed so much in the last past months, so I personalized every book with his different looks. I added the dates when I made each book on the special note. It’s a wonderful keepsake.

Why I’m Loving the Sustainable Clothing Movement

As a creative soul, I have a natural instinct to want to discover how things are made. Not long ago curiosity pushed me to learn how to sew my own clothes, and what I discovered changed the way I shop for garments entirely. Sewing clothes is extremely hard and time-consuming. The whole process made me realized how little I appreciated the pieces of clothing that I was buying from the stores. At that moment I knew that for the future I wanted to become a more conscious buyer. I was craving to get to know more about brands that were making an effort to act responsibly and that care about the process and the people involved in it.

That’s how I found prAna. I already had a few prAna pieces in my closet, but I didn’t know much about the company. Reading through their page and social media posts I discovered how prAna is always in search of sustainable raw materials for their products, such as organic cotton, recycled wool, hemp, recycled polyester, and manufacturing practices, they are really passionate about partnering with companies and factories that have strict guidelines for safety and efficacy. But in the end, I love that they still care about the aesthetics, creating beautiful, functional, and versatile products.

I love going to the gym and I’m a passionate traveler and hiker, but my love for prAna is mostly because I’m a mom.

Sometimes being a mom feels like a hardcore workout. I need to crouch down, balance, run, dodge stuff, all while I’m lifting a toddler with one hand. prAna pieces are by far, the most comfortable ones that I have tried since my toddler was born, and I love wearing them every day because I feel pretty and comfortable. They go with me grocery shopping, yoga class, my toddler’s tumbling class, and a walk near the San Francisco Bay to enjoy a beautiful sunset with my boys, and I always feel appropriate and confident.

After my experience making my own clothes, I started to value every piece of clothing I own. Now I think about them as a reflection of who I am, my values and interests. I wanted them to be durable and versatile, to avoid the need of getting too many useless pieces, but instead investing in great quality and companies that care about their impact on the world.

Every year I get excited about summer. My favorite part is being able to enjoy outdoor activities with the family, and also spend more time on our patio, sitting down with fresh squeezed juice while my toddler plays in his mini pool. It’s so peaceful!

When ANNIE SELKE invited me to help spread the word about their new Palm Springs Summer Collection, an exploration of Palm Springs style and happy, bright pops of color, I knew that their products would be the ideal accessories for my home and patio!

I was really happy reading more about the Annie Selke Companies. Their philosophy and goals resonate deeply with me. I appreciate the fact that they are committed to customer satisfaction, employee well-being, and the world, making ethical and socially responsible choices and decisions. Plus the products are beautiful, the perfect timeless lifestyle products that celebrate creativity, color and happiness.

This is how my patio looks this summer, doesn’t it make you smile? I selected a few items from Annie Selke’s Palm Springs Collection for this space. First, a COLORFUL RUG that is fun and functional. It’s now the perfect place to sit and read magazines while my toddler is playing on the patio. I got PILLOWS too, which are now my new obsession, the prints are simple, timeless and the quality of the textiles is truly amazing. I have been wanting to get a STORAGE HAMPER for a long time, this one is perfect to store the outdoor pillows next to the patio door every night. Other things I’m excited to have from Annie Selke’s Palm Springs Catalog are two of their vibrant and ULTRA SOFT TOWELS, the colors are just fantastic!
