Watch Out for Pink Dinosaurs

Our dinosaur tutu dress was such a hit, that we thought we’d bring it back.  This time in pink!  Here’s a throw back to our previous one.

Lace Tutu Dress

We’ve got several tutu dresses in production, but I want to give you a peek at what Taylor Joelle  tutu dress is coming next!  Our pink lace tutu!

These have a zipper in the back, and a soft knit lining under the tulle.  They will launch the last week of March!

It’s the perfect special occasion dress!



Easter Egg Cactus DIY


Easter is approaching and I am stoked about decorating my mantel.  I thought it would be fun to paint some “cactus” eggs like I’ve seen around Pinterest.  This craft was so easy and fun!  Here’s what I used:

Plain white artificial eggs at Walmart

Tiny pots from Michael Craft

Acrylic Paint

Dirt (yup, I just used real dirt in these post)

Pink Felt

Glue Gun

I started by painting the eggs green.  Once the paint was dry, I took a tiny paint brush to make the white dotted lines.  As the eggs were drying I painted the pots.  To make the flower on top of the eggs, I took a tiny piece of felt, scrunched it up and glued it to the top with hot glue.  I then used hot glue to make the eggs stick to the dirt (although mine would probably stay put in the pot without the hot glue).

Easy right?

LeapPad Ultimate

I was so happy to receive a LeapPad from Leapfrog to review.  I reached out to them because I am obsessed with this brand.


Leapfrog videos are what taught my older kids their letters.  No joke, my 17 month old son (Cooper) could say each letter and sound.  It was all from those leap and lily videos (I wish I could take credit lol).

The LeapPad is the perfect thing for Cohen.  Here’s what I love:

  1.  It serves as a tablet.  It’s no secret that Cohen loves his tv shows.  He’s always borrowing my phone to watch them online.  With the LeapPad I am able to download those shows.  There’s so many of them (shimmer and shine, octonauts, paw patrol, team umizoomi, and tons more).  The shows cost a few dollars for a bundle, but it’s worth it to me to have them downloaded onto the tablet (especially for road trips).
  2. There’s 100s of amazing learning games.  The device includes many free apps that are amazing!  They teach letters, emotions, words, reading.  I love the reading app.  You can select their level.  With Cohen the story will be read to him while showing the words.  With my older son Bauer, he will read the story himself.  They are interactive stories, so your child may think they are just playing a game lol.
  3. The way that Leap and Lily teach letters, I believe is pure genius.  I method that works so quickly.  So it’s fun to have the Leap and Lily activities right on the tablet.
  4. Back in the day we use to have the leapfrog toys and they all needed batteries (kind of annoying).  Now you don’t need to worry about batteries.  You can charge them overnight for hours of play.

Here’s a little demo video of Cohen with his LeapPad Ultimate

Easter Dresses!

We are so thrilled to bring you coordinating Easter dresses this year!  These dresses are perfect for sisters.


We launch this Monday at 7am (mst) to our facebook group (along with a 20% off code).  You can join the group HERE

Some info about these dresses:

These dresses are a little different that our previous dresses.  They are manufactured from a factory in Egypt.  We have decided to get at least 2 facilities producing Taylor Joelle so we can bring quality product more frequently.

What’s different about this dress?

There’s no tag on the bodice (instead the info is stamped on).

The bodice fabric is slightly thinner than our original fabric.  Same great quality, but a lighter material.  Great for spring/summer.

The mesh is very soft, but it’s a different mesh that our other dresses.  It’s a thinner mesh so we’ve added an extra layer of tulle (should be 4 layers in all).

The lining on this dress in longer (yay!).  An improvement we have been wanting to make.




Doll House Makeover

I was browsing my local thrift store and came across this $6 doll house.  Sweet deal right?


I knew with a little paint this could be so cute in my living room.  My little boy (yes boy) Cohen is obsessed with dolls.  My parents said that they would take over the project as a Christmas present to him.

Before I handed the house over them, I spray painted it completely with Bulls Eye Primer (my fav, I use it on so many different projects).

Here’s the finished project.  My mom used chalk paint (but i think any acrylic paint would do), and scrap book paper for the flooring.
