I adore this!

My daughter is different. She walks around saying "Why be normal? Normal is boring! I used to say this when she was 2 to about 6 whenever someone would laugh about her fashion sense which was sometimes very Punky Brewster and sometimes very Chanel on a budget. She has always been an individual and never marched to anyone else's drum. Sometimes she wears cat ears, sometimes blue horns, she wears tutus and she wears an animal tail. She is her own person and I want to be just like her when I grow up. 

This unicorn horn is so her and I love it.  I don't have a photo of it on her head because I want to put it in her Christmas stocking which I think you will all understand but I want to show you how awesome it is.

Mompreneur, Annie Bruce was inspired to create these charming, unicorn horns by her  daughter who came up with the unicorn idea when she was just 4 years-old. Together they wore their creations around Brooklyn for fun play dates. Many onlookers stopped Annie and her daughter and were amazed by how beautiful the unicorn horns were and asked where they could purchase some for themselves. Since then Annie and her daughter have been on a mission to create products that inspire young girls and women, make the world more whimsical and inspire people of all ages to follow their magic!

Annie Bruce, founder of Brooklyn Owl lives in Brooklyn, NY with her husband and her daughter, Bee. She created Brooklyn Owl in 2010 as a way to make the world more colorful and cute, one accessory at a time. Brooklyn Owl creates magical unicorn and monster horns, sparkle skirts, awesome shirts and party garlands. Everything is handmade in New York City by Annie and her team of talented seamstresses. Annie and Bee designed the Brooklyn Owl unicorn horn together when Bee was only four. You can spot them galloping around New York City going on magical adventures.

Yup it comes out this week for 2017 and it has never been better. My kids (which I am thrilled about) love looking at facts and stats. This book was sitting on the table with about 12 other books and this is the one they both wanted to pick up and eventually fought over. I found it so interesting. That is exactly how I was as a kid. I love browsing through the World Almanac. Yes, it is a huge book. Yes, it can be intimidating. Yes, it has very little pictures but there is something about all that knowledge in one book. There is so much trivia here and color photos. I don't remember color photos in my books from when I was a kid.

The book is easy to navigate thanks to the tabs that separate the sections.

Back To The Roots - Garden In A Can

I love gifts that are different especially when you just don't know what to give. How many scarfs, mittens and mugs can someone use?

Back To The Roots has some great holiday ideas that will please a lot of people. In the past I gave my father a mushroom farm and he loved it.

Back to The Roots has many different garden gift ideas for the beginner gardener, the expert and even the person who doesn't have space for a garden but has always wanted to grow their own fresh herbs and veggies. 
We received a four pack of Garden-In-A-Can. It is perfect for a window sill garden, requires very little car and is all contained in one little can. Who knew you could have an herb garden in a studio apartment?

Each can contains a different herb and everything you need to grow it the only thing that would make this better would be if you can select which herb you want to receive. 

The set comes with:


It was easy to start up our 4 can garden.

Open the can
Put a 1/2 cup of water in to moisten the soil
Open the seed packet and put them in the soil
Now place near a sunny spot so they can get some sun during the day and wait for germination which should be about 7-10 days. We can't wait to see how it goes and I will update as we move along.

We love the Back To Roots Mason Jar set which comes with tomato seeds and the Family Farmhouse Gift Set.

This makes a great family gift.
