Fan Girl Friday!

It’s Friday! *Flavor Flav voice* “YEAH, BOOOYYYYEEEE!” Today, we’re shaking things up on Fan Girl Friday–I actually don’t have fandom finds for you today! GASP! I know, I know… take a breath, it’s going to be okay. I DO, however, have some awesome tech that will make you FINALLY feel like all those predictions about life post-2000 in 80’s movies were accurate! To quote the modern-day poet, Bruno Mars: Don’t believe me? Just watch!

If you’ve gone to a baby shower lately, you’ve probably seen some of the super cool products that are on the market for babies, toddlers, and mommas! I saw a post the other day about some UH-MAY-ZING gear for littles and HAD to share!

 

Star Kids Snack & Play Travel Tray

enhanced-buzz-17254-1457044234-18

This travel tray is PERFECT for those long road trips that you want your kids to be occupied with toys but don’t want to be spending your time dislocating your arm as you paw around the floorboard for that toy truck that Little Johnny dropped for the millionth time!

 

Sippy Sure The Medicine Dispensing Sippy Cup

enhanced-20837-1457037575-1

I don’t know about you, but I loathe giving Huff the Tot medicine. For some reason when she sees that dropper of Tylenol, she loses her every-lovin’ mind! She flails her arms around and ends up spilling most of it down her shirt leaving me to try and calculate just how much she actually got in her system. This would help SOOOO much with those battles! The Sippy Sure has a removable dosage cup so you can get your little one to take their meds without spilling it everywhere!

 

PhillUp Hangable Kid’s Cups

enhanced-22485-1457034468-18

These awesome cups were designed by parents that were sick and tired of washing tons of dishes everyday because their kids “needed” a new cup every time they got a drink of water. Phillup Cups stick to glass, metal, tile and fiberglass and are color-coded for each kid!

 

SnipSnap

There have been so many times that we’ve gone out to eat, only to realize we’ve left Huff the Tot’s sippy cup at home. And, unfortunately, not every restaurant has kid’s cups or lids (though you’d think they would). Enter, SnipSnap. This handy little device can transform any cup or glass into a spill-proof kid’s cup! They come in Snug Spouts (AKA, sippy cups) or Snug Straws (in the picture above) for older kids!

 

MilkSense

Milk-Sense

I don’t know about any other breastfeeding mommas, but I always hate getting asked the question, “How much is your baby eating at every feeding?” Uh, I don’t know. Its not like these milk makers come with an indicator that shows my kiddo ate four ounces. Until NOW. Meet MilkSense: The Personal Breastfeeding Monitor. This handy dandy tool calculates how much milk is in each breast before each feeding as well as after so you know how much he’s taking in! Awesome right?!

 

What about you? Do you know of any tech or gear that are helpful hacks for parents? Share in the comments below!

Fan Girl Friday

Hey fangirls and boys, I’m back with another round-up of geeky goodies! Mother’s Day is next Sunday, and I’ve found some gifts for the nerd-mama in your life! Let’s get to it, shall we?

 

I love purses. I’m kind of like Jessica Day in that sense. If you’ve got a mom that loves to accessorize and show off her nerdy side, then look no further than Etsy shop, Geeky Girl Glitter!

How cute is that Batman purse? She also has a Vinyl Pop inspired Harley Quinn bag and other DC heroes/villains-themed goodies! Go check her out!

 

This next find is awesome because it can be a gift for Mom AND Dad! When going places with a little one, diaper bags can be a tad overwhelming. They’re not the most functional satchels; everything falls to the bottom! But not in this bad boy:

tactical diaper bag

It’s a tactical diaper bag! Exclusively from Think Geek, this bag has two removable pouches, 16 pockets (with zippers), AND Velcro name patches! Plus, it goes with everything with its simple black style!

 

Got a techy mom who also likes to stay fabulous? Check out this iGlam lipstick stylus from Perpetual Kid!

Now she can access apps easier—like Facebook to post embarrassing photos of you!

 

If your mom is more of a wine connoisseur, keep her looking tidy with these!

wine wipes

Their Wine Wipes! They keep Mom’s lips, teeth, and tongue clear of red wine stains so she can have more than one glass and no one will know!

 

Plus, you can pair it with one of these fantastic glasses!

rapunzel wine glass

Etsy shop owner Kelly Arce Designs has a collection of Disney-themed wine glasses! I LOVE the Rapunzel one and the Cruella de Ville one! She also has a Harry Potter-inspired goblet!

 

Happy fangirling!

Fan Girl Friday

Only six days left until Christmas, folks! That means all of you Christmas shopping procrastinators out there are really letting things get down to the wire! Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered! I’m back with a last-minute shopping lists for the fanboys and fangirls in your life!

 

For the {Techy} Happy Camper:

 

This is the ultimate gift for those who like the great outdoors—as long as they can see it from the great indoors. Just listen to these specs from the Eddie Bauer website: “…this three-person, four-season tent is made to be roomy, lightweight, and strong…It packs all the power you need to charge laptops, tablets, lights, cameras, smartphones, and more, while internal wiring will give you plenty of places to hook up!”

Sadly, this bad boy isn’t for sale…yet. I’m sure it’ll cost a pretty penny when it does hit the market, though!

 

For the Smart Dresser:

equation dress

How cute is this dress? (Huff the Babe actually has a cloth diaper that looks like this!) Covered in equations and formulas, this acute dress is available from ModCloth AND you can get it shipped in time for Christmas!

 

For the Whovian (That Doesn’t Like the Dark):

 

As a kid, I was terrified of the dark. Now, thanks to Doctor Who, I realize that fear was totally legitimate because it could’ve been the Vashta Nerada. And, also because of Doctor Who, I need a nightlight even though I’m an adult. And, thanks to Think Geek, I can have one, suited for a Whovian!

For the Manly Man:

I love bacon. I love it so much, my best friend calls me Bacon Face (that’s another story for another day). I think I might have to snag some of this for Huff the Hubs this Christmas:

bacon shaving cream

Its bacon shaving cream! The description from Perpetual Kid alone is enough to buy it: “Its meaty flavor will enhance your shaving experience and leave you with a soft, porky face.  Simply work into a rich and smoky lather with some hot water, shave against the grain and inhale the crisp, meaty scent.”

 

For the Book Worm:

Remember the good ole days of digging through the card catalog, searching for that one book you needed to finish your report on the Berlin Wall? Then finding that behemoth of a book, taking it to the librarian and signing your name on the checkout card? Ah, memories. Now you can relive those days gone by with this sqee-worthy satchel!

book bag

Plus, its only $19.99 from ModCloth! It would really finish off the look of that dress, huh?

 

 

See you next week, kids!
