Hipster by Miamily: A New Healthier Way to Carry Your Baby

**This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.**


HIPSTER™ BY MIAMILY No more achy arms. No more sore backs from carrying your baby. The better, healthier baby carrier. Swiss quality design. HIPSTER™ is carefully designed to allow you to carry your baby LONGER, much more comfortable and effortlessly. 

I was actually using a typical baby carrier before and I did experience some slight back pains probably due to my baby's heavy weight so I thought that was just normal.  I can only carry him for a maximum of 1 to 1½ hour using a carrier. But after reading the benefits of Hipster, I realized there is a better way to carry our babies where the baby is comfortable as well as the one carrying him. 

Here's a product video of Hipster: 

Benefits of Hipster:



We studied the International Hip Dysplasia Institute’s guidelines to ensure HIPSTER™ provides a healthier alternative.


Ergonomic design to allow your a proper spinal posture when you carry your baby in any of the configurations. With HIPSTER™ you carry your baby longer, more comfortably and effortlessly.


You baby can be facing backward or forward or with one hand free while the other supports your baby. In either case you get equal weight distribution with no weight on arms and straight back.
Miamily also offers a 30-day  zero risk guarantee and they do ship worldwide.

Bedazzled by Zazzle!

**This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.**

Generally, people of all ages love customized items and who doesn't? I personally love customized towels and lunch boxes because it gives me that sense of absolute ownership to that item and a sense of identity. For example, it's impossible for another student to bring an exact copy of the lunch box at school which I personally customized, so one look at the lunch box I already know that it's mine because I'm familiar with it. My friends would know it's my lunch box, too, because they, too, know my style.

Now, almost everything can be customized - shirts, baby clothes, caps, water bottles, stone trivets, the sky is the limit. Thanks to Zazzle, almost any item you can think of can be customized. They also have a vast number of items for sale that had me bedazzled!

Zazzle is an online retail store that offers thousands of unique, branded, pre-designed items, or customized products perfect for events such as weddings, birthdays, and such. 

I was just playing around in their website by customizing a shirt. I told my husband that it's my gift for him that he should wear around with his friends. *Evil laugh* Of course, I was just joking.
Customizing a shirt's design is quite easy and fun. You can also customize mugs, wallets, button pins, stickers, business cards, cell phone cases, art & posters, greeting cards, postage, and invitations.

Here are some other interesting finds from their vast collection:

Photo Baby Invitations
These are Zazzle's newest feature - the photo baby invitations! They're really lovely,

Halloween shirts (with humor)

Halloween gift items

They also offer branded items. They have themes like Angry Birds, Disney, or even Marvel! Since I like Captain America, I searched for some Capt. America stuff and these are just a few that I found in their Zazzle's site:
My son would really drool for that kind of bag since he's also a fan of Capt. America

I want that table lamp really bad

These Wolverine items are way too cool! 
My husband and my brothers would definitely love these. 

These are items I found under the Teens category. You can also find lots of items there - a great find for people looking for gift ideas for teenagers besides cell phones :P

Shop for a Cause! Shop at Schoola

As a thrifty mom like myself, I am fond of buying slightly-used clothes or items especially if their condition is almost like new and if it has a brand. I often buy second-hand children's clothes because children grow up so fast and it would be impractical to buy expensive clothes for them. In the next 3 months or so, I won't be surprised if their size got bigger.

Schoola is an online retail store where they sell gently-used clothing, shoes, bags, and accessories for kids and adults. 40% of their proceeds go to charity. On each clothes you choose, the site will actually post a detailed description of the item including how much is given to charity and to which school or organization. So you shop and you help at the same time! Thumbs up to this! :)
They are on sale now!

Here are some cute finds from Schoola's website:

You can also help by donating clothes to them. Just register in and they will send you a bag, postage-paid.

Get Sponsorship for Your Group Through Pear!

I remember during my school days when I volunteered to help our school organization to raise funds to buy new equipment and uniforms for our softball team. I used to go door to door to look for sponsors and give out envelopes containing letters explaining our purpose and goals. Well, those were the old days.  

As it turns out, there are good companies out there who are looking for teams, groups, or events who needs sponsors. 

So the question is where do we find those sponsors? 

This is why I love the internet. You don't have to go door to door and waste precious time to seek for potential sponsors. All you need to do is go online and go to Pear ( to find a sponsor!    

Get Sponsored with Pear
Pear? What is that? 

In a nutshell, Pear is where groups and sponsors connect. 
Pear is a community marketing platform that reaches over 85MM millennials, college students and families. They help brands create awareness, build consumer engagement and increase sales. Some of the brands they work with include Miller Lite, US Cellular, Verizon, and Ritz Bits. 

Pear is about raising money for the group or event by connecting with our brands/sponsors online. Their simple sharing tools make spreading the word and telling the group's story online and offline, easy. The more members that each group reaches and inspires to join in, the greater the group's award. Supporting groups or events are quick, easy and free.

How Does Pear Work?

You create a Pear, invite your friends to complete tasks on the Pear platform to earn money for 10 days.  Depending on the program, you can either redeem the money towards custom apparel like uniforms or a charity donation, even catering for an event. Best of all, it is free!

Here are some of the sponsors from Pear:

Developmental/Educational Toys: Connecting Pipes

**This post is NOT sponsored and opinions posted are my own. ** 

While my 7 year-old is busy playing with his LEGO toys, my 3-year-old girl wanted to play it, too. Unfortunately, she's still not allowed to play with them due to her age and she still has the tendency to chew or swallow on the small pieces. 

So I searched online on what toys are appropriate to my little tot and I just found from Facebook this page called Kidslike Educational Toys where they sell mostly toys for babies up to 7 years old. It's a great find for moms like me looking for affordable, baby-safe, developmental toys. You can also find great gift ideas, too. 

So I found these Connecting Pipes appropriate for age 2 to 6 years old - great alternative to LEGO because my little one can also build something from it. 

Preschool Developmental Educational Toy: Connecting Pipes
95 pesos for 15 pcs per set

"Kids will love building tons of structures with our pipes
Set includes 15 different kind of pipes for endless design possibilities
Children build motor control, develop spatial reasoning, increase coordination and more
For ages 2-6 years

Great Manipulative that Develops hand eye coordination
A fun and engaging fine motor activity for encouraging midline/bilateral skills
