{DIY: Necklace Storage Solution}



I have always been a huge fan of pretty necklaces - both dainty and bold in style -  and I have accumulated quite a few over the years.  Although they are still my favorite accessory, I have developed a love-hate relationship with my necklace storage methods.



In the past, I would just toss them in my jewelry bag, and when it was time to throw one on, it would take me forever to untangle them {You can ask my parents - They literally spent 45 minutes getting all of the knots out of my favorite gold necklace so I could wear it to my 30th birthday party...Just another one of the many reasons why they are the best people on the planet!}.



After many, many run-ins with the knots in my necklaces, I decided to take action and find a storage solution.  I use this method for my long necklaces, and I was so excited to recently find this DIY tip for storing delicate necklaces on the fabulous Cupcakes and Cashmere blog.

I can't wait to do this at my house, and I hope it comes in handy for you, too!

{Five Favorites}



Happy Monday, friends!!  I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July holiday and a fantastic weekend!



I usually post about my Five Favorites on Fridays, but since my husband had some time off last week, we spent every second we could making our sweet girl's first 4th of July the best it could possibly be.  We definitely succeeded, and we had some really special times with our little bundle of joy.



Here are a few highlights...

{Mommy Must-Haves: Swings and Seats}

I'll probably do a few installments of this Mommy Must-Have category because I have fallen in love with so many great swings and seats since we brought our little Kate home.


The first one I want to talk about is my all-time favorite swing...It's our amazing, go-to, "couldn't live without it" item, and it has definitely helped me maintain my sanity during sleepless nights and fussy spells.  Our saving grace is the...

My Little Snugabunny™ Cradle 'n Swing

{My Little Snugabunny Cradle 'n Swing}

I absolutely love, love, LOVE this swing, and Kate does, too!!  She's swinging in it as we speak, and she loves cuddling up in the cozy seat.  She is obsessed with the little rabbit rattle attached to the waist straps, and she can't get enough of the mirror and rotating birds that are located above the seat.

The swing offers 3 different seat positions, which come in handy for me because I like to switch positions based on where our windows are.  Our little one really enjoys looking outside at the greenery, so I just swivel the swing to different angles whenever she needs a change of scenery.

In addition to the various seat positions, the swing also offers different speeds along with lots of great sounds and songs to soothe your baby.  During the newborn phase, we mainly used the slower speeds, but now Kate loves the higher settings when she's hanging out in her Snugabunny Swing.  Her favorite sound on the swing is definitely the chirping birds, and quite frankly, it has become my favorite sound, too! :)  I find myself turning the chirping birds on even after Kate has drifted off to sleep in her swing because it's so soothing and peaceful.

This quickly became our favorite item for our new baby, and I bet your baby will love it too.  Our My Little Snugabunny™ Cradle 'n Swing was a gift from one of Forrest's sweet coworkers and his wife, but you can click on this link to check it out online.

If you're a new mom or a mommy-to-be, I highly recommend this swing...It's definitely worth every penny!

Katherine
