Review Of The Month – Beautiful design, easy to handle and great features

Beautiful design, easy to handle and great features!

“We LOVE our Bumbleride strollers and have recommended them to all our family and friends. The indie twin is so easy to push and maneuver even with two kids in it! It’s also great for infants – I put my 2 month old into it without having to use the carseat which just makes life easier! The harness is really comfortable and easy to use for a baby. I love the new extended sunshades to keep the kids shaded and the storage space below is great. Its also just a beautifully designed product.” – Rebecca

Run She Is Beautiful – Baby Mama Division 5k & 5 mile – Santa Barbara

We arrived. We ran (with Speed). We were inspired once again.

This was the third consecutive year that we’ve sponsored the Baby Mama Division of the inspiring She is Beautiful run in Santa Barbara (we also sponsor the Santa Cruz run!)  Being there, it’s impossible to not be inspired, encouraged and celebrated.  The two sisters, Melissa McConville (race founder & director) and Sara Tanza (Assistant Race Director & Chief of Fun) wouldn’t have it any other way.  They exude happiness and kindness + see the good in everyone.  Their MORE LOVE attitude is contagious.

With motivational words posted all through the course and groups of women from all walks of life walking, running, skipping or pushing a stroller, the race goes by in a blink.  Set right on the Santa Barbara coastline, the beautiful scenery is the icing on the cake.

Bumbleride’s mission is to make gear for you to get out and do what you love while doing our best to preserve the planet we all share.  This run helps us see our mission in action. This year, not only did we see tons of parents out running in the fresh air with their little ones in a stroller, we were so thrilled to see RSIB take the waste element to a whole new level with both compost and recycling options next to trash bins.  The race directors regularly attend conferences to help them to reduce their environmental footprint and reduce waste altogether in these large scale events.  So cool.

Each year, proudly gift a Bumbleride Speed jogging stroller to each of the winners of the two distances, 5k and 5 miler.  These strong, dedicated mamas deserve it!  Congratulations to the 5k winner, Molly Thomson from Santa Barbara, CA and the 5 mile winner, Laura Ewing from Ventura, CA.

Join us next year!

She.is.beautiful’s Mission Statement

Empowering women and girls through movement and community in a supportive environment where they are able to take the lessons learned on the road and trail into the rest of their lives.  We believe that beauty is more of a feeling than a physical attribute. We believe everyone deserves to feel beautiful, strong, smart, and capable in their own unique way. We believe so strongly in the power of sweat and community. We think there is something powerful that happens when a women/girl learns how strong she really is and how this can impact the rest of her life.

 

The Ultimate Baby Shower Registry – Lost in LaLa

“With my due date literally right around the corner, I’m so excited to finally get to put all of the amazing items I’ve been gifted for Baby Girl Beech to use! When I first found out I was pregnant, I was completely clueless as to what products I would need to care for a baby. My friends and family would spew random information at me, which was super helpful but also extremely overwhelming and hard to take in. I’d make note of things mentally that stood out to me as items and products that would work for me and our family’s needs and lifestyle but when it came time to get organized and put together a baby shower registry, it was difficult to know where to begin! Cue, the registry guru who stumbled into my life at just the right time and helped me more than I could ever express! Monica Banks is the founder of Gugu Guru and now someone I’m grateful to call a friend. She is an expert on all things babies and children and was so crucial in my decision making when it came to products for our little one. Monica kept me organized, educated, prepared and above all else, made me feel confident that it was all going to be okay whenever I got overwhelmed or had questions. The guidance and careful thought that went into every category of baby products to suit our family was just brilliant and I’m thrilled she was able to take the lead on this blog post and share all the details of my baby shower registry with you today! Hope you enjoy!”- Shenae
