Hatley Store {Review and Giveaway} (CLOSED)

I LOVE this tote!

I am a huge hoodie fan – I have been for as long as I can remember. Each year, I get my kids a few zip up hoodies, as well as a few pull over one.

They offer great hoodies – both pull {Read More}

My daughter is at that magical age of 4 where Santa is the most exciting thing about Christmas. She has been very worried this year because our house does not have a chimney.
