Remember how your parents told you to record each little moment as it happens, even if only on a paper napkin? Well, forget the paper napkin but record the memories with ease with Two Giggles' Milestone Photo Memory Cards which provide you a space for a picture and a few words to document the moment. So easy to keep on hand, you can record the "first" moments and then file them in book later. A great gift idea for the busy mom or those that aren't the best at keeping track of time!

Two Giggles Milestone Photo Memory Cards, $12 for 25-pack, at etsy.com

While I still have a few more weeks of working out to get in until I'm ready to venture out in a bathing suit, it's never too late to start buying a new swimsuit. ECO Swim by Aqua Green is a new line of swimwear that uses partially recycled materials and also is designed, made and sewn in the United States. A family-owned business that has now grown global, ECO Swim believes in reducing their carbon footprint and organizes beach and waterway cleanups around the United States. The swimsuits and coverups in the collection have a retro-look to them with swim dresses and one-piece styles featuring stripes and mini dots. What a perfect way to start out the summer -- doing good while looking good! For more information on ECO Swim by Aqua Green and their sustainability efforts visit, www.ecoswim.com.

If a trip to the mall doesn't sound like a good time and sitting down at the computer is just out of the question, there's help for you. Wittlebee is a new subscription-based monthly service that delivers baby and kids clothing direct to your doorstep. For $39.99 a month, you get eight different pieces of clothing that are selected for you based on your child's size, style personality, color preference and what you're currently in need of (pants, long-sleeves, dresses, etc.). The five different style personalities include: princess, preppy, hippie, diva and sporty and clothes are available in sizes newborn (0) to size 5. While you're able to pause or cancel your membership at anytime, you can also change your style and size preferences so one month you can get a box tailored for daughter and the next month, your son. What a great way to save time and your child will be delighted to open up a new box of clothes each month (as will you too)!
