A June Park Halloween + a GIVEAWAY

 JUNE PARK COSTUMES


Halloween is so much fun with little kids and I feel like the window of getting to choose their costume (or help them put one together) is so small. There is something so fun about hunting down the perfect items to create your own version of whatever your child chooses to be. I personally love to use clothing that my son can keep in his closet long after the holiday and either buy or make a few coordinating accessories. Below are some costumes ideas I put together using June Park pieces + other items from some awesome shops. All items are linked below the outfit, but many can also be fairly easy DIY projects. I can't decide which one is my favorite! What are your kids going to be for Halloween?

Fall Favorites

Posted by Katie Convertino on

I can't even believe it's fall already (probably because it's still nearly 90 degrees outside), but pumpkin everything has started to emerge and the temperature is slowly dropping which results in me shopping for all the sweaters and cozy things. I gathered a few of my favorite fall finds below - some of them I've already purchased and love  and some are on my wish list. What's on your list?

NEW ITEMS COMING SOON
New items are coming to the shop Thursday at 11am CST!
TURNAROUND TIME
As you all know, most of my items are ready to ship, but I'm sort of doing an in between these days where half the things are ready to ship and the other half are made to order (Thanks to life: a full time job, toddler, etc). That said, all orders will have a 1-2 week turnaround time, but I aim to get them out much faster than that if possible!
SIZING
Each item on the website has a very detailed item description. I try my best to explain the texture of the fabric, how best to style it, the fit, washing instructions, etc. Please be sure to read prior to purchasing to avoid any confusion

Leave a comment below or feel free to reach out to me with any questions via e-mail, IG DM, or Facebook.  Also, be sure to join our Facebook group June Park Love for questions, feedback, sneak peaks, etc.

Almond Butter Banana Toast

Posted by Katie Convertino on

This sweet toast is the perfect healthy treat to refuel a nursing mama, or anyone really. I am still nursing and find that I'm always hungry. You can find me rummaging through the cabinets trying to find something to eat at least 10 times a day. This toast is quick & easy to make and there is very little prep/cleanup involved. Almond butter is an excellent source of protein and whole grain carbohydrates can provide an energy boost. A satisfying breakfast, lunch or snack! 

Almond Butter Banana Toast
2 slices bread of choice
bananas
almond butter
honey 
coconut flakes

Toast bread. Spread thin layer of almond butter on each piece of toast. Slice bananas and place on top of almond butter. Drizzle with honey and sprinkle with coconut flakes. Enjoy!

My next goal is to make homemade almond butter, as I've heard it's very easy. Have you made your own butters at home? Which ones are your favorites?

Posted by Katie Convertino on

About the Company

MinErbs is a small family business created by mother & daughter-in-law (Simona and Nikita). They pour their whole hearts into creating nature-based products from remedies passed down from Simona's Latvian upbringing. Her accredited education partnered with Nikita's commitment to provide the purest, most meaningful goods for her children is the inspiration behind their products. They say: "As you cultivate the well-being of your precious families, we are honored to share our love & dreams through our products in your beloved daily rituals."

What we love about the brand

MinErbs creates small batches of nature-based products. They use a combination of locally wild harvested ingredients and ethically sourced ingredients. All of their products are botanical-based and 100% natural. And, can we talk about how beautiful their packaging is? They have absolutely no:

  • parabens
  • phthalates
  • talcum
  • SLS
  • petroleum derivatives
  • mineral oils
  • artificial fragrances, pigments, or colorants
  • testing on animals

MAMA

Charcoal & Rose Face Cleanser | Glow Rose & Bramble Mist | Glow Serum

I've had the opportunity to personally use all of these products and they are really great. The charcoal cleanser foams up just a tiny bit and leaves my face feeling smooth and clean. The Rose & Bramble Mist has a mix of rose & witch hazel scent to it and is very refreshing. The serum is moisturizing and doesn't leave your skin oily. You can read more about each of these products, their ingredients, and uses by clicking the links above. 

BABY

Little Explorer's Shoo BugBlue Chamomile - Baby Balm 

As much as I love using natural products on myself, I love using natural products on my son even more. I limited myself to these two products even though I wanted them all - ha! I've been looking for a natural bug spray so I was super excited to find this! I haven't had a chance to try it out yet since it's been raining here, but I've heard great things! and this baby balm smells amazing! Also, I'm slightly obsessed with the color of it.

MinErbs is an amazing brand with some amazing women behind it! If you'd like to check out more of their products, click here.
