I’m addicted to kitchen gadgets. Worst part is, I may use it once, then completely forget about it and never use it again. My brother got me a silicone macaron pan for my birthday a few years ago, and I had all these plans of making fancy jam filled macarons. Those plans never went through and the pan has been accumulating dust. I decided I had to FINALLY use it, but I wasn’t really in the mood for making macarons. I kept looking at the pan and realized they would be perfect for making tiny little tarts.
As a newish mom (if my daughter is 14-months-old, do I still get to include myself in the newbies club?), I often find myself looking at the world a bit closer and trying to figure out what I’d say to my child if she were faced with some of the everyday obstacles that confront me.
Sun Angels started with one simple goal in mind: to create kid-friendly, fashionable gear that protects kids from the sun’s potentially harmful UV rays. Sisters-in-law, Stacy DeVreese and Monica DeVreese, created Sun Angels when they were frustrated by the limited options they found for cute, effective sun protection gear for their kids. Very little passed their mommy-approval test, which demanded both function and charm. After spending years slathering on sun block, strapping on hats, and coaxing their kids into the shade, they decided to take matters into their own hands. That’s when they created Sun Angels sun protection gear.

I’m pretty sure I love to dress up my gadgets more than anyone I know. It’s not as bad as matching my gadgets to my outfits but I wouldn’t say that it’s far off from that.
