Unicorn Love: More for Littles

Who is ready for some more magical UNICORN items? I know I literally always am!  There were so many totally adorable things for kids, that I had to split it into two posts to share everything I love that I found on Etsy.  So, here is the other unicorns for kids post! Enjoy <3

01 //  Unicorn Party Dress by December Baby
How cute is this dress? I wish we had a magical unicorn party to go to so I could get this for my daughter!  I love the fabric, and I love the cut of the dress. It’s so stinkin’ cute!

02 // Pastel Blue Unicorn Necklace
I’m sorry if every single one of these items just say “THIS IS SO CUTE” at the beginning of the description but I’m also NOT sorry because THIS IS SO CUTE!! I would wear this necklace myself, maybe get a matching one for my kid haha… maybe 😉

03 // Unicorn Minky Baby Blanket
Who wants a unicorn themed baby room? Honestly, I’m surprised I didn’t think of that before just now.  I wonder how into that theme my daughter would be for her room… or else, I could just incorporate unicorns into my son’s Harry Potter themed room.  hmm… good idea, or GREAT idea? 😉 ANYWAY, Minky is one of the softest fabric known to man and this blanket would be adorable in any baby room, unicorn themed or not.

04 // Unicorn Counting Clip Cards
This would be so fun for my daughter, seriously. These cards would be a great way to learn how to count for kids, and feature the sweetest little unicorns.  It’s a win win 😉

05 // Large Unicorn Plush with Rainbow Hair
This crocheted stuffy is so sweet.  Again, this would be totally adorable in a unicorn themed room.  Or on any kids (or adults) bed.

06 // Unicorns Flutter Sleeve Shirt
This outfit is adorable! I would put my daughter in this ALL the time as a little one.  The print is cute, and I love the fluttery little sleeves.  So sweet for any time of the year at all.  Seriously.

07 // Unicorn Bracelet
This bracelet is so cool! It is hand stamped and says “Everyday I’m sparkling” which is so obviously true. 😉 This would be so great as a part of any arm party.

08 // Pink & Gold Unicorn Stick Hobby Horse
These look like so much fun.  It gives kids the chance to pretend to ride a little horse around the house, but in this case that horse is a UNICORN. SO amazing and magical.  It’ll make any play-date sparkle.

what are your favourite unicorn things?

You’re Invited: May Market!

In May of 2016, 10 lovely mamas had babies!  From different parts of North America, we were all connected with the fact that our babies shared a birth month.  Over time, we learned that we were all really crafty and had opened little shops to help provide for our families.  We decided that we should open a market on Facebook to showcase our talents and share our gifts with the world and the May Market was born!

The first Friday & Saturday of the month is usually when we put on our sales, and the 10 of us (plus a guest vendor) put things together that go along with a little theme.  This month’s sale is based around Back to School & HARRY POTTER!! And I am SO excited to share a sneak peek of the things that we will have in the sale.

All you have to do to see what we’ll have is visit the group here! And join!!

We hope to see you there <3

Unicorn Love: for Mama

In my next installment of amazing things on etsy that have to do with unicorns, here are things for women/adults/mamas!  I specify for mamas because I am a mama, but these items would be awesome for just about anyone.  I’m so excited to share the next few items with you, because they are majestic AF and amazingly magical unicorn things for adults.

01 // Unicorn Mom Glass
Unicorn Mom: A mother who’s not perfect, enjoys alcohol, has a sense of humor and couldn’t care less what you think.  See also: beautiful boss, zero f#&ks given.  Adorable glass that clearly needs to have some kind of fun cocktail in it.  Would be great for a mama’s birthday, or Mother’s Day 😉

02 // Unicorn Bracelet
Gorgeous gemstone beaded bracelet, inspired by unicorns.  This bracelet is more subtly unicorn themed, but would be the perfect gift for your friend who loves unicorns.  It’s so pretty and I can’t stop looking at it!

03 // Ceramic I Love Unicorns Pin
This vintage pin is simply adorable, and would make any backpack or denim jacket (or wherever else you put pins 😉 ) I love the vintage aspect of it, too! It makes it seem way more unique and one of kind.

04 // Majestic AF Unicorn Tank
If anyone dares question how majestic you are, you should definitely get this shirt to show them that you are majestic AF!! So perfect for anyone tbh. I would love to wear this, personally.

05 // Unicorn Silhouette Earrings
Oh my goodness, these are ADORABLE!! I love unicorn silhouettes, and I love the way these ones mix wood with a magical purple.  I love them so much, if only my children would let me wear earrings 😉

06 // Unicorn Tote Bag
I LOVE this bag.  It looks amazingly large and spacious, and I could fit SO many things in this bag.  As a mama, I find that my bag is filled with so much stuff, and I know that a bag like this would actually contain everything I need on a regular basis.

07 // Unicorn Notebook Insert
This would be so handy, for any planner-fans out there!  It’s so fun to add a little kick of something magical to a day planner, and this would be so perfect for that.  The art is beautiful, and it would give your day planner a little something special.

08 // Unicorn Macaron Planner Clip
This is SO adorable.  I want it for my day planner tbh, bc I would absolutely love using it.  I love the workmanship here, it would spunk up any dayplanner.

Which of these is your favourite?

xoxo,

Unicorn Love: Stuff for Littles

My unicorn love continues!! There are SO many adorable unicorn things for little ones that I have this split into two posts.  One today, and then one in a few weeks haha Stay tuned for that! <3

Here is the first round of unicorn items for little ones.  I’ve included apparel and toys, and ALL are so adorable you won’t be able to stop yourself 😉

01 // Unicorn Costume
When I saw this I audibly gasped.  It’s so beautiful I can’t even.  This would be perfect for Halloween or any day you want a little bit of whimsy.

02 // Matching shirt for a little one and their doll
This one is just too adorable.  I know us mamas like to match our littles, but it turns out that little girls love matching with theirs, too!  This is for a shirt for your daughter or son, and then a shirt for their doll.  It’s simply adorable

03 // Crochet Unicorn Plushie
What could be cuter than a rag doll shaped like a unicorn?  So perfect!

04 // Unicorn Bonnet
Sorry not sorry, I’ve included my own unicorn bonnet in this list.  I love the way it turned out, and it’s so adorable on!

05 // Unicorn Personalized Pencil Box
I wish my kids were old enough for school because of this pencil case.  It’s too adorable, especially with the added bonus of a little unicorn!  You can get these in a bunch of different colours.  It’s so sweet for back to school.

06 // Unicorn Bodysuit/Onesie
I just love this adorable little onesie!! It’s got a sweet little unicorn face on the belly, turning any baby outfit absolutely magical!

07 // Unicorn Dreams Romper
This romper is so cute.  It comes in teal with GOLDEN unicorn silhouettes on it.  It’s so adorable.

08 // Unicorn Diaper Clutch
If you have a giant diaper bag, like I do, this would be the perfect way to keep all the diapers in one place.  It’s got space for diapers and space for wipes.  Plus, it looks so cute that no one will suspect there are really diapers in there. 😉

Do you see anything you want here?  Make sure you click on the links and give some love to these shops!  These unicorn things are so cute, I doubt they will be available for long.

xoxo,

Unicorn Love: To Relax With

I don’t know if you knew this about me, but I absolutely love unicorns.  I’m sitting at my desk, and to my left is a golden unicorn lamp.  And to my right there is a little unicorn picture on the wall.  Unicorns are awesome, and I love celebrating them.

I sell on Etsy, and I buy on Etsy, and I’ve been looking around and there is a LOT of unicorn stuff on Etsy these days.  Which is so awesome for unicorn lovers like me, right?  So this is post one of a series about alll the unicorns you can find on Etsy!

01 // Unicorn Hooded Blanket
This blanket looks SO cozy!  Perfect for a cool fall day, when you just want to look at a candle and/or read a book by a fireplace.  Or binge watch your fave Netflix show.  Plus, why would you do any of those things as a normal person when you can be a unicorn while doing them? Way more exciting 😉

02 // Unicorn Soap with Rubber Toy Inside
I love taking baths, and this would be a lovely addition to any bath or shower.  It looks like it would be a lot of fun for a kid, too.  See how many baths they have to take before they can get the toy out!

03 // Unicorn Eye Mask
After your bath, it’s time to take a nap, and what better to help you nap during the day than an eye mask?  This one looks so soft, plus, you can’t go wrong with gold unicorns!

04 // Sculpted Unicorn Bath Bomb
This one is so beautiful, I would probably just display it by the tub if I’m being honest.  It is a bath bomb though, which would make for a really nice bath.  I’m obsessed with bath bombs haha but I don’t think I could use this one.  It’s just so pretty.

05 // Watercolour Unicorn Mug
What could be more relaxing than looking at this gorgeous watercolour unicorn?  Picture it: hot tea, that unicorn blanket and whatever form of entertainment you enjoy.  Sounds like a perfect afternoon to me!

06// Unicorn Bath Bomb
This unicorn bath bomb looks SO sweet, doesn’t it?  It’s guaranteed to add a little bit of magic to any bath <3

How many of you want to relax with a unicorn now?  I know I do!  It’s just hard to decide where to start 😉

Stay tuned next week, for the second post in the Unicorn Love series.

dress: thrifted // headband: made by me (Alysalovely Littles) // necklace: Mama Gems

I’m so ready for (more) summer weather!  I took these pictures a few weeks ago, right before we headed off to the spray pad with our friends to frolic in the cold water there because it was SO. HOT. out.  The last week has been all rain, basically all the time.  Sad.

Hi friends! I’ve been kind of MIA lately, but it’s been for such a great reason, I promise!  I’ve been preparing for several farmers markets that I am participating in this summer and I’m SO excited about them!  That, in addition to our monthly May Market, of course! 🙂 That will be this Friday/Saturday and it’s going to be awesome!! Check it out at the link above to join the group!

Otherwise, we’ve been doing a lot of hanging out.  Going to spray pads, to the park, it’s been a great summer so far!

What summery things have you been up to lately?

xoxo,
Alysa

dress: thrifted // necklace: Finity Handmade on etsy // glasses: Glasseslit.com

Toddler outfit:
Dress: thrifted // necklace: Finity Handmade on etsy

It’s funny. Slightly more than a year ago, when I had only one child, I would take my outfit pictures when she was napping. Now I have two, and so I barely take outfit pictures ever… but when I get a moment to do so, I have an adorable little one crashing the photos!  I love it.  She wanted to pose the same way I was, it was a lot of fun, and she is an adorable addition to my photos.

I want to talk about this dress for a moment.  I love how classic 90’s it is.  And I especially love the buttons up the back.  Except… they come undone SO easy.  How embarrassing is it when you have just walked across the room and sat down, only to receive a text from your husband that your dress isn’t done up?  Pretty embarrassing!!  But I love the dress so how to prevent wardrobe malfunctions?  Shorts underneath!  I have a lot of bike shorts and they’re perfect for something like this because you can’t tell I’m wearing them, and no one will see my underwear… even if the buttons aren’t holding up.

Autumn picked her own outfit today, too!  She really wanted to wear a dress and was so excited when she saw this one. And it’s so cute, I couldn’t say no!  Plus, you can’t go wrong with matching necklaces, right? 😉

Hope your week is amazing <3

Alysa

Autumn at 2.5 <3

Earlier this month, my little girl turned 2 and a half!! Aka 30 months old haha.  I’m not one to keep track of months specifically, but it would have been hard to add a little point to 2.5 years haha 😉

Autumn has been growing so much over the last half a year.  She has a LOT to say.  She knows so many words, and says them so sweetly.  Some of them she has the cutest pronunciations.  She still loves reading so much, and always wants to hear stories.

This month she watched her new favourite movie, Moana!  She’s also started potty training (which I will probably write about in more detail soon).

She’s learning so much and I love watching her grow <3

Aiden at 11 months

I don’t know if this is a real thing, but the last month of Aiden’s first year has flown by so fast that I didn’t even get a chance to share his 11 months update!  And it’s funny that this month has gone by so quickly, because this month last year went by SO FREAKING SLOWLY.  A side effect of having a two weeks late baby 😉  Now, he’s almost one!! It’s surreal.

Anyway! Some of the things he was doing at 11 months:

Aiden has been consistently sleeping through the night.  He gets up at about 7:30 every morning, and most days he even goes to sleep on his own.  For the most part, I nurse him to sleep, but sometimes he wants to go to sleep by himself.

He’s getting to be such a sweetheart.  He’s been saying so many words.  He said “duck”, “car” and “toy” this month. He likes playing with his sister, and reading books.  He started his first swimming lessons, and is unsure about it.  He’s not as upset about it as his sister was, but he’s still not 100% sure.

He’s been growing so much, and we love him so much <3  In about a week, I’ll share his 12 month update 😉

xoxo,
Alysa

Currently Creating: What I’ve Been Making Lately

It’s been pretty quiet around here lately, and I’ve missed writing here.  I’ve just been on a roll with making bonnets for my etsy shop!  I’ve been doing a lot of summer bonnets, and I just love how they turned out, so I’d like to share with you some pictures of my most recent creations:

I’ve also started making things for Aiden’s first birthday!! I’ll share those after the party 😉
