Have you ever watched a commercial and you just can’t contain your emotions? AD: That’s how I felt when I saw @crest’s new TV commercial, featuring 86 year old Bertha Nunn! To celebrate the season of giving, Crest partnered with Wish of a Lifetime and made Berth’s wish come true by casting her alongside Santa in its latest holiday spot. What an incredible way for Crest to give people a lot to smile about (and in my case, cry). It made me think about our beautiful Nana, who would have been 95 last week, and her lifelong dream of visiting Hawaii. Sadly, she wasn’t able to fulfill her dream before she passed in 2016, but we are determined to go to Hawaii and bring a picture of her with us wherever we go. While she won’t physically be there, she will be there in spirit and that will make us all so happy. Now, grab your tissues and check out Bertha’s debut (click on the link in my bio or check out my stories for a sneak peek). Then, look for Bertha, with Santa and Crest, this holiday season. After watching her story, be sure to share her journey and  share a smile. If you could have any wish granted this holiday season, what would it be? #CrestSmiles .

So your kid spends all of their time watching other kids open toys, play video games or walk around aimlessly, talking about nothing? Sounds exactly like this girl. Every time I turn around, she is watching someone else’s family on YouTube. This year, I asked Falynn to create a gift guide with what she wants most for the holidays. I was NOT surprised that her list was full of things that she's seen or heard about on her favorite YouTube channels. She even used the word "merch" which totally cracked me up! MERCH! What 7 year old says that?! She has also asked that I figure out how to create a toy line with her face on the box. Those videos have her convinced that it's the natural next step for us and she's confused as to why it's taking me so long to get it done. 😒 Those YouTube families make it look so easy, don't they?! Anyway, instead of sharing a holiday gift guide for 7 year olds, I figured I would share the perfect holiday gift guide for all of you parents out there who have kids that are just as obsessed with @ryansworld, @tictactoyfamily,  @funnelvisionfam and all those other fun youtubers who are living our dream lives right now. Head to the blog and check it out! .

Last month I wrote a “favorite things” blog post on a whim. It was fun to share the book I was reading, my favorite movie, podcast and tv series and other things I am currently loving. The response was great and I got so many messages from readers asking for more. So, I’m excited to announce the Super Mom’s Favorite Things will become a monthly series! AND volume 2 is up today. I even included our new favorite snack from @artisantropic! Sooooo yummy! Click on the link in my bio or swipe up in stories and let me know what categories you’d like to see me add in January!

This week has been hard. Sunday would have been my Nana’s 95th birthday and it was also the first anniversary of the passing of one of my best friends, Brooke. 
This was the photo that hung in my Nana’s living room. She would show it to everyone that visited her.  She told me she would stare at it and smile every single day. She was so proud of all of her great-granddaughters. 🥰 I’m so grateful that my girls were able to know what an amazing woman she really was, even if she was taken from us a little earlier than expected. So while I try to reflect on the good times, I’m still trying to accept that she and my friend are both gone, too soon. It’s been a hard week, but I will get past this and keep living my best life... that’s what they would have wanted. How do you deal with grief?

Happy National Cookie Day! Where are my caramel macchiato fans at?! Super Dad and I will rarely order anything else when visiting our favorite local coffee shops. So when we were trying to come up with the perfect cookie flavor to celebrate today, I had to try these caramel stuffed macchiato chocolate chip cookies. And let me tell you, they came out SO good. Head to the blog for the full recipe (link is in my bio or swipe up in stories). What kind of cookies are you celebrating with today?

I say it all the time. We may have rescued Elle from @bigdogranchrescue, but we needed her just as much, if not more, than she needed us. I can’t imagine our family without her. Does your family have any pets? I’d love to hear about them and how they changed your life. .

We visited @treasurecoastsq last week to remind our girls that the true spirit of the holidays is about giving. #sponsored With their lists in hand, they went to their favorite stores (Claires, Spencer Gifts, Forever 21 and Justice), picking out the perfect gifts for their favorite people.They did such a great job of choosing each present without going over their budget and the only thing they got for themselves was hot cocoa and a snack from Starbucks! On our way out, we took some pictures by the Santa Photo Experience, located in the Old Navy Court and someone special snuck up behind them to get in the pictures. They had no idea that Santa was standing just a couple of feet behind them!  There’s something about the holiday decor at Treasure Coast Square that always gets us in the Christmas spirit. Our next trip will be to drop off some donated toys at The Salvation Army Angel Tree table! What is your favorite part of the holidays? #holidayatsimon

Where are my Frozen fans at?! #ad My girls have been fans since day 1, so it’s not a shock that most of their Christmas wish list is Frozen themed. When we found this @HuffyBicycles Disney Frozen EZ Build Bike at Walmart, Falynn couldn’t "let it go" and she received a Christmas gift early! This bike has so many fun features! It even plays Frozen sounds! It’s available in 12” or 16” and features Elsa, Anna and Olaf. It’s perfect for young riders! Head to Walmart to purchase a Huffy bike for your little one this holiday season. They make the best big reveal gifts for the holidays and you’re sure to get tons of nice "warm hugs!" This bike is ON SALE now -- link in bio and stories to shop.  #GiveTheRide #LiveTheRide #AvailableAtWalmart .

Traditions are a big part of our holiday season. We are so grateful to be working with @minted this year on one of the traditions I love the most, our annual holiday cards. Our daily lives can be hectic, but it’s a great way for us to stay connected to our family and friends. Minted made the process incredibly easy. They have a card template for everyone and they are completely customizable (greeting, colors, fonts, and more). And if you need help, Minted offers free card styling service. Just Text Your Photo to 22737 and a Minted stylist will text you back five holiday card designs, selected especially for and styled with your photo—for FREE. Import your address book and Minted will address the envelopes for you! Do you know how much time that saved me?! They even have the option to create your own stamps to match your cards! I can’t believe how easy it was and more importantly, how beautiful they turned out. We can’t wait to send them off to family and friends this week! Now through 11/29, Minted is offering 20% off all orders $150+ or 15% off all orders, plus free shipping with code BF2019. Have you ordered your holiday cards yet?

The first thing that we hear from most people, when they see Falynn in her small shop gear is “WOW! Look at that outfit!” After this particular photoshoot, I stopped at the gas station where two different people stopped to admire her outfit.  One older lady asked if we were from NY, because that outfit was too cool for Florida.  Then she proceeded to look at Falynn and say “You go girl!” You can’t make this stuff up.  One of the best things about small shop gear is that your kids will stand out.  I love, more than anything, that I’m teaching my kids a valuable lesson that they may not even realize that they are learning.  It’s important to shop small. It’s important to support small businesses and most importantly, it’s important to promote these businesses and help these owners to achieve their dreams.

A little less than a year ago, we were at a dance competition in Orlando, FL and posted in one of our Facebook groups, looking for local reps to meet up and shoot with.  What a surprise to find out that Lauren, owner of 9 Twenty Five Kids lived just miles from our hotel (and we just happened to have packed a pair of shorts we purchased from her a month or two prior).  She and her incredibly adorable son, Kash, met us and she brought Falynn the CUTEST dress.  It was our first meet up and we had a blast.  It was so great getting to know the owner behind the shop.  I think a lot of time we tend to forget that small shop owners are just like us.  They are parents. They are trying to turn something they love doing, into something that will pay the bills.

Later, that same weekend, Falynn got to be a part of the 9 Twenty Five Kids 10k Follower photo shoot. It was super exciting and the beginning of my love for meet ups!  Not long after, Lauren held her brand team search and I jumped at the chance.  9 Twenty Five Kids is one of those shops that I would buy everything from but don’t really have the budget to do so.  So, being a part of her team is such a blessing.  We get a great discount and we get to rock her threads.  It’s truly an honor.

What I loved about being on her team was the photography challenge I faced. 9 Twenty Five Kids has a very specific look to their branding. Lauren prefers urban shots.  I was terrified at first.  We don’t live close to anything remotely urban looking, so in the beginning, I had to get creative.  I remember that first photo shoot, I took over 700 pictures because I was so afraid that I wasn’t getting anything that she would be able to use.  It was the challenge that pushed me.  I look back at those first few photoshoots and can’t believe how far I’ve come.  I hope that Lauren sees the improvement and loves the pictures as much as I do.

Tee: 9 Twenty Five Kids, Harems: Little Harts and Arrows, Boots: Palladium

How about this black side zip tee?! The quality is incredible and the little accent zippers on each side make it so much more than just a plain black tee.  I love buying pieces that go with just about anything.  And how rad does it look with these army green and black striped harems from Little Harts and Arrows?   Throw in accessories from our shops, iBetterAccessorize and The Biggest Little Bead Company and POW! Perfection. The whole outfit really came together and I love how she looked!  For some reason, she reminded me of Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation.  Though, my memory must really be bad because when I googled the video to show the kids, the outfit didn’t look anything like Janet’s. Oops!  I’ll just blame it on the Mom brain.

I hope you will take the time and check out 9 Twenty Five Kids. It won’t be long until you see what the hype is all about.    Use code 925FRIENDS and tell them @thesmallfashionista sent you.

Interested in working with us?  Email us! We’d love to hear from you. Make sure to check out our daily small shop fashion on our Instagram page, @thesmallfashionista.
