at home with lillypost

can i tell you about one of my favorite gifts ever?! it’s lillypost! of course, if you’ve been around for awhile you’ve heard me mention this numerous of times. if you’re new, here’s the deets::

  1. its a monthly subscription box available in 1,3,6, or 12 months
  2. subscriptions start at $26 a box
  3. you get to pick your style; board book box, picture book, or mixed
  4. boxes ship out on the 20th of each month
  5. lillypost will donate 1 new book to a children’s literacy charity for every box purchased

this month we chose to do a mixed box. i just cannot really get over the fact that finley probably is getting to the age where he doesn’t need board books, but lets be honest…hayden still loves these ones and he’s four. for us, its fun to do the mixed books because the board books they look at on their own + the picture books are left for reading before bed. or before nap time. or when they wake up for the day. WE’RE ALWAYS READING!

my coupon code is still good for all first time box purchasers. use ‘beingbadenhop’ or 10% off any 1,3,6, or 12 month subscription!

ps- this is like the perfect christmas gift. hint hint. you’re welcome. xx

madewell pop-up recap

this past weekend, i was invited to host a pop-up event with my local madewell store. and it was simply the best! i had such a great time choosing looks + partying the afternoon away with friends + family, and sweet guests. such an honor to have spent the day at one of my favorite stores. special thanks to sam, claire, and team at arbor hills for all their help along the way + for helping make the afternoon special and perfect.
