The Thanksgiving Collection

Posted by Katie Convertino on

 

Introducing: The June Park Thanksgiving Collection

a mini collection of Fall colors and patterns for your little ones

 

The Thanksgiving collection will be available on the June Park website today! The seasons are changing and so is your little one’s wardrobe. This collection features versatile mix and match pieces that look great paired together or on their own. This Thanksgiving collection is all about fall comfort and warmth while maintaining style. Cozy colors as well as super cute gingham prints are what you can find in this holiday collection.  

    

      

Most items are ready to ship, but turnaround time is about 1 week on everything just to be safe (they will likely ship sooner). All items also have a fit description written in them. As always, most my styles run a bit oversized and if you are on the fence between two sizes, you could probably size down for a more true fit.

 Thank you to all of you for allowing me to continue to design & sew these items for your little ones. Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions about anything! Also, a huge shout out to Cameron Jones Photography for capturing this line for me!

Blueberry Super Smoothie

Posted by Katie Convertino on

Those of you that know me know that my son is a super picky eater. To be more clear, he barely eats anything. He's 22 months old an we are still nursing and he just refuses most foods. One thing he will eat: a smoothie. This is our go to smoothie; it's packed with yummy goodness

 

Ingredients

-almond milk

-spinach (I like to get this kind from Target because it comes frozen into the perfect size balls)

-frozen blueberries (I use these from Target as well)

-frozen banana

-almond butter

-cocoa powder 

I pretty much eyeball everything. I usually start with almond milk, add the spinach, and blend that up to make sure the frozen spinach ball gets all blended up (of course this wouldn't be an issue if you were using fresh spinach). Then, I add everything else. I add a heaping spoonful of almond butter, half a spoonful of cocoa powder (sometimes I leave this out if I'm lazy), about 1/4-1/2 frozen banana

 

 My Favorite Smoothie Gear

FOOGO THERMOS: My favorite smoothie cups are Foogo thermos cups because they keep it cold and Cru is easily able to drink the smoothie through the straw! I also love that I can snap the top closed for taking it on the go!

BOON STRAW LIDS: I also really love the boon straw lids because they can fit on any cup and are easy to take on the go or to have on hand for when friends are over. Fair warning that these are not spill proof, but they are convenient and perfect for toddlers that are a bit older.

METAL STRAWS: Joey and I like to use the metal straws for our smoothies.

NINJA BULLET: I have, use, and LOVE the Ninja bullet blender. It's made my life so easy for making smoothies daily for Cru and it's only $69 on Amazon!

Meet the MAMA: Chelsea Munoz

Posted by Katie Convertino on

 gathre mat | outfits | photographer

Chelsea Munoz is a sweet mama of two that is married to her high school sweetheart. She has been a June Park supporter since the beginning and I just adore her. Read below to get to know a little bit more about her and what she loves about June Park. If you want to follow along and see cute photos of her littles, check out her IG account over at: @sweetlittlewildflowers

What do you love about being a mama?

I love how pure and unconditional it is, and not in the way I love them but the way that they love me. In every action of the day they are looking at me for each answer and assurance, I am their everything. Even in my less proud moments of feeling impatient they are quickest to forgive and move on with a new change of attitude, that's powerful. They make me strive to always be a better human, and raise them to be even better.

What are your favorite activities to do as a family?

Before having kids my husband and I used to always just take drives with no destination and see where we'd end up, now that we've moved to a different state we are able to explore and experience new adventures like that with them. We pile into the car and drive, finding beautiful hidden places. Honestly though, I live most for the slower days when we are all piled into my bed as a family, there's nothing like taking it all in and watching the memories being filled in our home.

When did you first become a June Park customer?

I came across June Park on Etsy one day while heavily pregnant with my first baby searching for bows, that's when I discovered her head wraps. They came just in time before Savannah was born and she lived in them! We were instantly in love and quickly expanded from head wraps to bloomers, harems, and basically all things June Park. Three and a half years and two baby girls later, I'm lucky to call Katie my good friend and June park our absolute favorite small shop.

Why do you continue purchasing from June Park?

Through the years I've come to love Katie and her cute little family, and I love knowing that I'm helping support her and her growing brand. Putting our friendship aside, I continue to purchase her products because I know that they're going to be everyday basics for my girls (and those mama items for myself too) and they're not only going to be well made and comfortable, but long wear beyond the time marked on the tags.

Chelsea's mom is also a June Park supporter! How sweet are these girls and their grandma, all in June Park! Thank you Chelsea for always supporting me, encouraging me, and trusting me to dress your kiddos. I love that we've become friends over the years and am thankful that our paths crossed.
