Friday Favorites: Currently Loving

Happy Friday! Today I thought it would be fun to bring back my Friday Favorites! So many amazing companies and products out there and I’m lucky to be able to work with them. It’s a busy time of year for shopping and all the gift-giving so I thought some of these products and pieces would be fun to share!

First up, my new Aid Through Trade roll-on bracelets. I am OBSESSED. These are fair trade pieces, handmade by artisan women in Nepal. The bracelets are made out of glass beads and there are so many gorgeous color combinations to choose from – I was delighted when they sent me this Gatsby Glitz stack that is just my style – I’ve been wearing it non stop. I am going to be doing a giveaway with Aid Through Trade soon, so stay tuned. But if you see something pretty from them you like now, use code LITTLEDOG20 for 20% off!

Next up – another Fair Trade product, which I love! Kahiniwalla:  meaning a purveyor of stories, a storyteller, a traveling story teller; a business which distributes Fair Trade product in North America which both are handmade and have a story. These two pieces are contemporary hand made products which are part of the Pebble brand – the best in hand manufactured soft toys from community businesses in Bangladesh. Each piece plays a part in helping women out of poverty and putting smiles on faces worldwide! These are the blue plane + dog boy rattles, which are super sweet and beautifully made. There are so many gorgeous characters to choose from – if you need a baby gift, this is IT!

All Pebble products are made by Hathay Bunano. Hathay Bunano, meaning hand made or hand knitted in Bangla, is a non-profit fair trade organisation in Bangladesh. It’s mission is to create fairly paid, good quality, flexible and local employment for rural women who are poor and often disadvantaged. Hathay Bunano aims to provide employment which fits in with the rhythm of rural life and to prevent economic migration to the cities. It aims to keep families together and in particular to keep mummies with their babies and children by providing employment in a village setting close to their homes. It aims to address all the reasons why a woman might not be able to work and to support her so that she can work and can earn money to support her family.

How sweet are these books?! Counting Things and Opposite Things  arrived last my doorstep this week and they are really beautiful books that both my boys {ages 2 and almost 4} really enjoy. They are life the flap books which my boys LOVE playing along with, and they are both at the age now where they no longer rip that flap off, which is awesome. Graham is really into numbers at this point and Brooks is learning opposites so it’s perfect timing. If you are looking for a few beautiful books to add to your gift giving this season, check these out – two thumbs up from me!!

Next up – something sweet! I am currently in LOVE with these yummy + organic dried fruit from Stoneridge Orchards. I have been able to try their all natural cherries + blueberries AND their cherries + blueberries dipped in chocolate as well. It’s been an awesome go-to snack for me when I am craving something sweet and NOT grabbing the leftover halloween candy.

What’s your favorite healthy snack you grab when you are craving something sweet?

Now its time for something savory – The Gluten Free Power Breakfast. I am really loving these protein-packed oatmeal breakfast bowls which are filled with hemp, flax, fruit and more. They are little envelopes that pop open into bowls are come in some great flavor creations. Super yummy and amazing for breakfast on the go.

Also, now that the weather is cooler, oatmeal is my favorite in the morning! Coconut Cashew, Maple Raisin + Apple Cinnamon – all delicious! If you spot these at your local Target or Amazon – stock up!

And now, a little something fun. Brooks thinks his new pencil case for school is the funnies thing that there ever was! This ZIPIT is a playful and fun little monster character. You zip up the zipper and the gold grillz are hidden – its cool because this thing is one long zipper! Definitely a little something fun to add to a holiday gift bag for sure!

Just a few of my Friday Favorites at the moment – what are you currently loving?

Please share!
