Review: PV.Body Fit Box

December 17, 2012

I’m so sorry if any of you are having trouble with your orders. PV.Body is going through a transition right now towards an in-house brand called Ellie.

Review: That’s A Wrap!

October 2, 2012

Since Mazen was born, we have been doing a ton of baby wearing. From making breakfast to working at my computer to events out, the Boba wrap and carrier have both been such a help to allow Mazen to be snuggled next to us (often napping) and give we parents a bit of two-handed freedom. […]
