As y’all may have seen in my posts, Hudson is a model for a very cute Etsy business called Magical Baby Clouds! It was made by an amazingly talented Mama named Margot! This was our first Brand Enthusiast experience and so far our only, he hasn’t modeled for any other business yet because we love her so much and she makes some wonderful and useful things for our little man! Also gives us an excuse to take adorable photos of our little man without looking like crazy, obsessed parents 😉
She’s willing to make custom orders depending on your taste (We love the woodsy and boyish look so it’s SO nice to tell her what we like and have her send us photos of the different fabrics we like!)
All of the stuff is completely handmade and unique – Which is so much nicer than going out and buying an expensive piece that wont be made just for your sweet little one.
And it’s not just clothing! It’s also adorable teethers and toys that are SO needed for when their painful little teeth come in!
So if you’re in the market for some new bloomers/shorts (New to her shop!), bibdanas, scarves, top knots, head bands, teethers or ANYTHING of the sort. Check her out! She’s been so good to us and I know you’ll LOVE her stuff!

Head over to her shop now! Hudson’s on the first page 😉
My family and I are incredibly thrifty – Doesn’t matter whether we’ve got a ton of money or not, we really love saving money and getting good deals! It just doesn’t make sense to spend a ton of money on something you can get barely used for cheap OR free.
**I am totally listening to Macklemore’s Thrift Shop right now**
It took awhile for me to realize what a good resource Craigslist was, but once I started finding tons of deals I was HOOKED. I just wanted to brag about our newest find to show how AWESOME it is to be thrifty!!
My husband came home one day with a completely disassembled hammock stand that he had picked up for FREE on Craigslist. It looked like it was missing pieces and I wasn’t too interested. But after putting it all together it was HUGE and looked awesome!! Found out it was from Ikea and retails for $70!! It looked nearly brand new!
I started getting pretty excited after that so we looked on the Ikea website and found the matching hammock to go with it for only $40! So instead of paying $110 for a really nice hammock and stand we only paid $40 and now have an amazing piece for our backyard for relaxing and tanning 😉
I know there’s a stigma about buying used but it’s so much cheaper and just as good as going out and paying full price, as many of the items being sold ARE being sold because they’re in good condition still (Obviously there are SOME exceptions to what you’d buy used but you get the point 😉 )
So if you don’t already I highly recommend looking into a different way of shopping! It’s really exciting and rewarding when you grab some amazing deals! ❥
Be Thrifty! Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!
