I only have heart eyes for Mila… and her Valentine’s Day LOVE Basket this year!
Happy February everyone. I can’t believe we’re already in the second month of 2022. It’s already flying by and I have a feeling February is going to go just as fast too. To celebrate this holiday and to just show Mila how much I appreciate her, I put together this little basket.
It’s always nice to share some of our purchases and these just scream Mila. She’s already opened this and has already started using them.
Love Baskets could either be opened on Valentine’s Day or I love doing it the night before February or on February first. Either way, I know kids loving getting surprises and if you can swing a few Valentine’s Day items like pajamas, candy, or a little toy, they’ll be thrilled to open it up.
If you haven’t noticed, Mila likes to dress up… a lot. We have a ton of clothes at our house, but a girl needs options, right?! It’s so much fun to buy themed items. Although it seems like themed items can only be wore during one time of year, I try to buy items that can be worn whenever.
Valentine’s Day definitely makes this easy for Mila. She LOVES hearts and all things pink. So, these three little items will be worn over and over again.
The “fries before guys” shirt is from Adelynn Mae. Mila reps for them and we’re always buying goodies from their website. We also got another Valentine’s Day tee (I’m a sucker for you) that I posted on social media last week. She’s obsessed with both of them and will be wearing these to her school’s Valentine’s Day party! I cannot wait to see her all done up in both of these outfits.
Another Adelynn Mae plug… she has St. Patrick’s Day shirts for sale and they’re ADORABLE. If you’re looking for whatever holiday shirt, go to their website and make sure to use MILA10 for 10% off!
There are also the cutest heart nightgowns here too. I got them from Carter’s and they’re the sweetest little nightgowns. Anytime we can find nightgowns, I buy them. Mila prefers them over anything, besides her fuzzy onesies on cold nights! Anyways, these are adorable and I know they’ll definitely be in the pajama rotation for quite a while.
Here’s some other cute Valentine’s Day pajamas on Amazon that you can get in time for the big day:
Right now, Mila just wants to make makeup videos when we’re home. I swear she’s going to be turn into a mini-influencer and I’m all for it. She has been telling me she wants different make up and I just had to surprise her with new lip gloss, eye shadow, a Minnie Mouse makeup headband, and a new Minnie and Mickey hairbrush.
Honestly, I bought all of this off the clearance shelf at Marshalls. They had a ton of goodies. When I want to buy makeup for Mila, I make sure it’s real and for a good price. I don’ think I spent more than $5 on any product here.
Why don’t I give her ‘fake’ or ‘kids’ makeup? Well, it’s not tested or as safe as real makeup. There’s a lot less chemicals and she know that there’s a difference between the two too. I want her to feel like she’s appreciated and supported as well as being safe when getting all those Tik Tok fans when she’s allowed to have it (way in the future).
If you’re curious to see a makeup tutorial she did, check it out here.
She also received the CUTEST bracelets from our favorite Etsy shop: Sloane and Daisy. We have purchased so many of their bracelets and necklaces and are obsessed. Of course we had to have one in our LOVE Basket.
Mila also reps for Sloane and Daisy and you can use GREYSKIES15 to get your little (or you) a bracelet of your dreams.
Social Media Kit
To further feed her love for social media, I surprised her with this video recording kit!
It comes with different lights to get the perfect video. We didn’t put the tape lights up, but she’s in love with her ring light. Then thinks it’s so cool when I put the mini one on my phone to record her that way too.
I think I’ll end up giving her an old phone without anything but the camera to record herself. She truly enjoys it and it’s harmless. I guess it’ll give her the skills to use technology too.
We’re always looking for learning experiences.
Mila loved everything in her LOVE Basket and I was so happy to give them to her. We’re excited to enter February and get this month under way!
