Whether you live in a very cold country or you’re just spending the holidays at a below zero destination, you’re going to need to protect your hands and fingers from frostbite. This statement holds especially true for your children, as they’re much more fragile than your average person. So what do you want to do? Find the pair of gloves that can equally stand the weather and make your little princesses look stylish.

Basically, if you don’t want to sacrifice style, you need to make sure the gloves feature a good color and that they are the perfect fit for your kids’ hands. Whether you choose to pamper them with mittens, fingerless gloves or even styles made out of wool, odds are you’ll be protecting their little hands without giving up on style.

But if you still don’t know which ones to get, view your options below.

Tips to Protect Your Little Ones from the Sun

When summer starts, it’s only natural for kids to go out to play under the stinging rays of the sun. And since our kids are more vulnerable to the sun’s harmful rays than us, here are some precautions to take before they run free in the beautiful sunny outdoors.

First, your kids need sunblock not sunscreen, as the latter contains one too many chemicals for their age. In fact, sunblock should be used for your kids until they reach the age of 5 if not more.

Besides that, your 6-month old should not be left outdoors with uncovered legs and arms. So if it’s really necessary to go outside, make sure to dress your kid in long-sleeves and pants in order to protect them from UV rays. With this in mind, you can opt for clothing and hats with UV protection especially if you’re about to spend a lot of time outside.

Last but not least, make sure to provide your little ones with a lot of fluids while they’re spending their time in the sun. This will definitely protect them from getting dehydrated and keep them refreshed.

Now that we have provided you with some useful tips, we want to wish you a happy summer!

Every woman loves jewelry and as a jewelry lover yourself, you won’t be in shock when your little daughter comes to you to ask for a pair of earrings to wear. In fact, every girl sees in her mother a role model and does all that it takes to look just like her. This shouldn’t worry you but to the contrary, it must make you the happiest and proudest mama on earth!

If you were wishing to make your daughter’s dream come true by treating her to a few jewelry pieces, the task might be a hassle because we all know how difficult it is to find jewelry especially designed for kids. Therefore, letting her borrow some pieces from your own jewelry box will definitely make her the most joyful little girl in the world.

But this dictates a few important rules that we will tell you about. First, you should take into consideration that the earrings should be studs or small hoops that won’t hurt her tiny ears. Second, limit her choices to the simplest pieces in your jewelry box in order to avoid her looking like a little woman – at the end of the day, her age should be the main factor affecting the choice and this what will make her look like a chic little princess.
