winter must haves with {erbaviva}

organic baby winter

Old man winter is fast approaching and so are the skincare hardships that come along with it. Whether it's your baby's first winter or your toddler is already a winter veteran, the wind, cold and dryness can definitely take it's toll on their health and skin. 

Erbaviva is an organic baby {& mommy-to-be} skincare that not only smells great, is safe for all skin types, and have certified organic products… but their products actually do what they should! Their line carries a wide range of mommy and baby products addressing almost every baby skincare related issue out there.

Here are a few to get your baby through the winter:

1. Organic baby butter - With this baby butter, a little goes a long way. You only need a small amount of product to get amazing results. Your baby’s natural body heat will allow for it to melt and moisturize their skin! Also, this baby butter contains Lavender and Chamomile essential oils that will not only ease dry skin discomfort but also relax your baby.

2. Sunscreen SPF 30 – The sun still shines even when it’s cold. It’s important that your baby’s sensitive skin is always protected. This sunscreen is completely natural and the highest SPF available without using synthetic ingredients. This product is also amazing for adults looking for a natural sunscreen!

3. Organic lip and cheek balm – Dryness happens with the bitter cold of winter. With the organic lip and cheek balm, it makes the job of soothing chapped, cracked, and irritated skin easier.

4. Sniffles organic chest balm- Using eucalyptus, tea tree, and myrrh essential oils, erbaviva has created the organic, miracle working solution to your baby’s cold and cough. Not only is this stuff great because it’s organic and smells great… but it’s great because it works!

men's style and this fellow

It's not very often that you find a blog that pays homage to men's style and that is why we were so excited to find this fellow. That is, Bobby Hicks and his blog 'this fellow'. Bobby works as a bartender at the world class Lantern's Keep and the Mondrian in SoHo in New York and loves cooking, reading and his girlfriend {who most of us here already know} designer and blogger keiko lynn.

Bobby gets his style from shops like Hudson Denim, J. Crew, Zara, H&M, Fischer Clothing, Jack Spade and some of his truly stylish pieces from vintage and thrift stores. We love his style! Here is a sneak peek of what you'll see with this fellow.

love his style? Bobby tells us where he gets his clothes on his blog{ this fellow }.
Do you know someone with great men's style? tell us about him!
