Things I’m Loving Right Now – Valentine’s 2018 Edition

1. Righteous Roots Pre-Poo Hair Oil

We LOOOOVE this stuff in our house. We use it as a pre-poo, part of our deep conditioning routine, and as the O in the LOC/LCO method. It works great, smells great, and is made by an amazing fellow small business mama!

2 . Many Ethnicities Kids Leave-In Conditioner

Another hair product that we are obsessed with is this leave-in. It also is made by a small business mama (see a theme here?), it has AMAZING ingredients in it, and a little goes a long way. We use it daily when we refresh our kids curls.

3. Princess Truly in I am Truly

My daughter got this book at her school book fair and we both just fell in love with it. It teaches little girls, especially little girls of color, that they can be anything. The art is super cute and fun to look at. The message behind it is exactly what any parent would want their kids to read. You MUST check this book out.

4. La Princesa and the Pea

This was the book we had the honor of reviewing for Multicultural Children’s Book Day 2018. It is a Latin spin on the classic tale and I would argue it’s better than the original.  The artwork is stunning and as a bonus your kids get to learn some Spanish words. If you are trying to raise multicultural kids then this book is a must.

5. Ibari’s Curls

Of course I had to include my own book. This year I published Ibari’s Curls to represent my daughter and other multiracial kids in the world. It teaches self-love, body autonomy, acceptance of differences, and basic curl care. It is perfect for any kid, even if they don’t have curly hair!

6. Bonsai Kids Curl Revival Spray

This spray is so amazing to use in the morning when you need to quickly refresh and detangle curls. It includes beneficial ingredients and smells great! If you are struggling with time in the morning then you should try this product out.

7. Black History Flash Cards

We love these cards all year long, but especially important to highlight this month since it is Black History Month. It is so important to teach your children their history and culture. My kids are part AA so these are a fun way to get them to learn about Black History. Any way to make learning fun is good in my books!

8. Curl Next Door Tee

This shirt is so stinking cute! Super simple but makes a fun statement for your kids. Plus representation matters and with straight hair so prevalent in mainstream media we have to work hard to teach our curly cuties to love their hair!

9. My Family –

This is every year of course but look at my cuties! We have decided this year to try to do more activities as a family together and go on adventures. I just freaking love my little family soooooo much. #MixedFamilyLife
