Heidi's Picks of the Week - March 15th

You can see my weekly gift picks on I Am Modern Magazine. I Am Modern is an award-winning, hyper-local, reader-generated lifestyle magazine for modern moms. I hope you enjoy my picks for this week!

For me:

As I flip through the latest fashion magazines, I notice that ruffles are everywhere this spring! In keeping with the up-to-the-minute trends, Vera Bradley has come out with the Cha-Cha handbag. This darling handbag has personality plus - from its' shiny strap and its' rows of ruffles - this bag instantly puts a smile on anyone's face. Purchase the Cha-Cha in any of the new colors, but my fave is Totally Turq! Just add water for a fabulous spring break!

For the kids:

Ok, I must admit that I usually don't give into my kids' desire for impractical collections. We have plenty of "stuff" around our house and don't need another pile of yesterday's "must-haves." However these rubber bands are anything but boring. From dinosaurs to alphabets, these bands are fun, cheap and a practical collection for the kiddos. In my lifetime, I never would have thought that rubber bands would be a "collectable" or much less a jewelry item worn on the wrist, but apparently kids have a creative mind all their own. And for now, these HOT items don't seem to have any desire to go on ice.

For my gals:

As the calendar turns to somewhat warmer weather in the daytime, the mornings and evenings are still crisp. Thus, this is the time of year for layers. And frankly, I own twin sets in just about every color and style - and, I am bored with them! Luckily, Top It Off must have been reading my mind because they just came out with the perfect answer for spring. I love these cotton wraps! They come in a beautiful spring color palette are are the perfect (and trendy!) substitute for the cardigan. If you are looking for something green to wear for St. Patty's Day, try one of these wraps on for size!
