Making Moms Organized in a Sugar Snap!

December 5th, 2012

Oh my friends! Every once in a while a product comes along that is so useable, so genius, so well made that I am literally bursting to tell you about it. Today I’m thrilled to introduce you to Sugar Snap files, they can change a nightmare of a diaper bag (like mine) into an organized and functional system in a SNAP!!

The Sugar Snap files are designed to fit right into you existing diaper bag…or purse…or any bag you want to tote around. I hope that my description can do them justice, as they are too cool! The Sugar Snap files consist of 5 pouches with easy to identify tabs such as: Lotions & Potions, Me & Mine, Dipes & Wipes, Shirts & Socks, Snacks & Supplies. All of them are attached to a ring but you can add or subtract pouches according to your plans for the day. I swear that they have the power to make any disorganized and frazzled Mommy look like an organized phenom! Lola and I were sent the Parker design (green pattern with orange trim) to try out and share with you. I have to tell you, I feel like a new woman. I absolutely love this product, instead of spending time digging and rummaging through my diaper bag to find stuff it’s all easy and accessible in those tabbed pouches.

If the labelled tabs aren’t enough, each pretty pouch has a mesh front so you can peer right in and grab what you need for your baby.

I’m so excited about Sugar Snap that it might just be my new “go-to” gift for all of my expecting mom friends. – XO Daria

DIY Daria – Teacher Gifts

June 16th, 2010

“DIY Daria” came out to play for a few brief hours last week, in order to make some stellar thank you gifts for my kids teachers. If you like mine you’ll love the original idea from the blog eighteen25 – her tutorial on this was so awesome I just HAD to do it! I had the most delightful time scouring the shelves at Michaels for all kinds of cute little clips, magnets, glitter, stickers, punches and much more to fill up their kits. I hope they enjoy them and find them useful too.

Happy I shared??? You’re Welcome!! LOL!!

LobotoMe – organizing for your cranium

January 22nd, 2008

LobotoMe Today I’m dishing about a product line that gives us back our sanity, and works efficiently to help us get organized. It’s all about LobotoMe paper planners that are sure to get us all on track for the new year!

There’s something really satisfying and powerful about making lists, I’ve always been a real list maker and love to have all my duties laid out in front of my eyes. When I take that extra step to write it down, I see greater results in the amount of things that I can accomplish. However, I’m not perfect and I definitely need a little help getting everything prioritized, and then staying on track. I was sent the organizeMe Weekly Planner, and got right to work filling in my weeks activities. This planner doesn’t disappoint, in fact they have really covered the bases with spots for my entire week full of appointments. For the Mom who doesn’t exactly put herself as a priority, the Weekly organizeMe planner offers reminders to drink your water, take vitamins, and hit the gym (you can add in – Get A Massage, Pedicure and New Outfit if you like, that’s what I did). It’s like having an assistant that really cares about you right there in your own writing.

I loved that this pad included 60 pages on white recycled paper (1 for each week) to take along with you, just tear off your week’s schedule and bring it along in your purse wherever you go. It’s all there at a glance. And since LobotoMe includes some additional pages, you can definitely help out another stressed out Mommy in need by giving her a LobotoMe, or at least a weekly page to make her feel that way. :) LobotoMe

The LobotoMe website is rich in humor and offers “goods to keep me sane”. Everything from a Mantra Poster for your wall, to PackMe travel pads for your next trip, Feed Me meal planning pad, Save ME to do list pad, even a HoneyDo note pad!

By shopping LobotoMe products you are buying eco-friendly organization gear. And LobotoMe even offers a Brain Fog Blog with a great dose of “sanity saving tips…to save you from a trip to the looney bin”. So go check out the website today and get your very own LobotoMe! – Daria
