Hip hip hooray it’s Friday! We have had the busiest week and are looking at an even busier weekend. My Friday Favorites include the coolest diaper bag you’ve ever seen, a movie premier, a new children’s store opening, and my new hair! I hope you’ve had a great week and plans for a fabulous Saturday and Sunday.
Vilah Bloom Cafe Collection Diaper Bag.
One of the BEST ideas ever is the diaper bag that can be worn a multitude of ways and looks more like a purse than a mommy bag. The Vilah Bloom Cafe Crossover is made with pebbled vegan leather and has all of the bells and whistles a Mama could want for her everyday bag.
It can be worn FOUR ways (small shoulder, crossbody, backpack and stroller clips) and there are two special pockets to hide the straps when they aren’t in use. There is a pocket on the outside (seen above in backpack style) that reveals a secret wipe holder. One either side of the wipes holder, there are two zippers revealing an insulated area to store hot/cold items.
There is a changing mat in the diaper bag, four large interior organizational pockets, two interior bottle pockets, and expandable sides (for when you’re carrying more than usual). I love Vilah Bloom Diaper Bags because they are beautiful, made of vegan leather, and ideal for the modern Mom.
“I Feel Pretty” Movie Premiere.
Wednesday night I was invited to attend a secret screening of Amy Schumer’s “I Feel Pretty.” Not only did I receive the COOLEST swag bag, but I also sipped wine while watching one of the funniest movies I have seen in a long time.
Brandon was my date for the movie premier – funny thing is that he was one of maybe 4 guys in attendance! He did say he thought the movie was great and super funny.

The movie had such an amazing message – that it doesn’t matter how “pretty” you are, it is how pretty you feel. Confidence in yourself is what makes you successful!
JoJo Maman Bebe Store Opening in Westport, CT.
One of our favorite children’s stores – JoJo Maman Bebe – is coming to the United States! They are a London based store with a collection of classic baby and children’s items, clothing made of high quality materials in styles that are adorable and everlasting. If you live in Connecticut, take a trip to Westport this weekend for the Grand Opening Event!
We are headed there on Tuesday next week since we are super busy the next few days, plus Ailey has a double ear infection (ugh).
Balayage Hair Makeover.
Have you ever heard of Balayage? It is a hair highlighting technique in which the dye is painted on your hair to make it look more natural. My friend, Vanessa, is a hair stylist at Urbane a Hair Salon in Guilford, CT and asked if I wanted to come in for a little fun. She gave me a Balayage Treatment, Olaplex Treatment (hair repair), and full blow out – a true Mommy Hair Makeover.
I was absolutely blown away by the finished product – my hair not only feels amazing, but it looks SO gorgeous. I couldn’t believe what a bit of balayage would do to a head of hair, but Annabelle has told me repeatedly I have Rapunzel’s beautiful hair now.
If you want 10% off and a FREE Olaplex, give Vanessa a call and mention my name and blog!
This weekend we are headed to Mystic, CT for a family adventure (follow along on my Instagram!) and then Sunday I’m hosting a Blogger Brunch at Conspiracy in Middletown. I’ll be posting on my IG stories and feed, plus on Facebook all weekend long!
LOVE the hair!! I tried balayage last year and loved the look. It looks especially fantastic on your dark hair!
Love your hair makeover! And I think I’m meeting up with my sister this weekend to see I Feel Pretty 🙂
Your hair makeover is fabulous! And that diaper bag…pretty sure I would carry that for a regular bag any old day. Happy Friday!
