I have been recently introduced to the wonderful world of re-usable napkins, who knew a whole variety of them existed?
The napkins pictured above are PICKmeUp napkins, each one colourfully designed with your child in mind. PICKmeUp napkins come in a variety of designs, and have beautiful and inspirational little messages printed on each one. 

Like a lot of parents, I have always sent little messages in my son's lunch bag to let him know mommy is thinking of him while he is away at school. PICKmeUp has combined the personalization of a note with the functionality of a napkin for your child to enjoy and use! I received PICKmeUp set "A" for review with my son, and I absolutely LOVED them!! A set of 5 is $29.99 and each napkin measures 10x10--in my opinion the perfect size for tiny mouths!! I love that all the printed messages and patterns are unisex and equally sweet in nature- a perfect way for my kids to know they are loved.
Unlike a few other re-usable napkin sets, these are not double sided and they are fairly smaller in size (which I personally, love). From a design standpoint, these are chic and expensive looking and my reading-age boy LOVES the wording. A few 'bonuses' to these adorable napkins are the sewn on label that can be used to write your child's name so that they NEVER get misplaced! As well as the fact that they are 100%cotton ANNNNNDDD Made in Canada!! Whoo hoo!!

With the beginning of the school year around the corner, parents everywhere are searching for products that have both functionality and style. Let me introduce you to the Dabbawalla re-useable lunch bag a Rocket Biodegradable Lunch Bag - that is out of this world! 

My son was THRILLED to receive this bag courtesy of Lavish & Lime for review. Since 'Cookie' is obsessed with space and rocket ships to begin with, this bag was a perfect fit aesthetically for him. As a mama, I am often concerned about the environment and the functionality of items I purchase. This bag fits the bill! 
Not only is it a re-usable bag it is also Biodegradable!  

Made of the revolutionary new material, Ariaprene, this reusable lunch bag for boys is significantly more environmentally friendly than traditional lunch bags.
 These bags come in a variety of designs, suitable for even the pickiest of students! Aren't they adorable?? I think I may have to buy the butterfly design for myself ;)

Now, not only will my son be stylish, mama will have piece of mind knowing that he has a healthy lunch packed in a bag that is friendly for the environment too!  This bag is roomy, and soft too! I also love that it can be washed easily in the washing machine, HUGE bonus for parents!!
