HI!

I'm Kristin.  I am a wife, aspiring designer, Christian and for now a SAHM.  My husband and I are parents to two darling little boys named Dylan Archer and Kyler Jude.  I created this space to document my family's adventures and lessons I've learned along the way.  The Mom Jungle is a modern interpretation of both the family newsletter and scrapbook.

SADDLEBACK LEATHER | LAPTOP BAG (TOBACCO), $219 

Saddleback Leather is a great company that comes with a lifetime warranty.  Their leather is top quality and becomes more buttery over time.  This laptop bag is a wardrobe staple that will never go out of style.

FATHER JOHN MISTY VINYL, $27.77

There’s nothing quite like listening to music on vinyl.  We’ve been really enjoying this record as of late.

FENDRIHAN | EGLINTON" 5-PIECE CLASSIC WET-SHAVING KIT WITH SAFETY RAZOR, $115 

This gift speaks of luxury.  I can imagine my husband would love this gift, but would probably never buy it for himself.  Another idea is to buy a gift certificate to a local barber shop for a professional shave.  Guys need pampering too!

APPLE TV, $89 

We use Apple TV and we love how user-friendly and streamlined it is.  Our one-year old can even navigate it when he sneakily grabs the remote!

H&M | 2-PACK FINGERLESS GLOVES, $6.99 

This is another great stocking-stuffer idea.  Coming in black and heather-grey means they will go with anything.

BEARD PACK, $39.95 

For the bearded hipster in your life, this kit will be adored.  How incredible is the packaging!? #marketingworks

ILLBURY + GOOSE | CHARCOAL SOAP (IN ARCTIC CHAR), $7 

I love shopping small business and local.  With this product, the charcoal helps to draw out toxins, leaving skin feeling squeaky clean.  Plus, the packaging is perfectly masculine.

LUSH | BATH BOMB, $8.95

Here’s a stocking-stuffer idea for the girl who loves to be pampered.  Lush is a cruelty free, all-natural, and vegan company.  Bath time has never been so fun!

SEPHORA | FORMULA X THE MATCH CLIX, $19

This inexpensive gift is really cool and also can be a stocking-stuffer.  What I like about it is that you get four nail polishes that click together in one case.  It’s convenient for the girl who is on-the-go and needs to touch up her manicure.

URBAN OUTFITTERS | MARBLE JOURNAL, $12 

Another inexpensive gift is this beautiful marble journal from Urban Outfitters.  

H&M | WOVEN PONCHO WITH FRINGES, $29.99 

Besides the poncho being the “it” fashion statement for the Winter 2016 season, they are also extremely forgiving size-wise.  However; like always it’s advised to include a gift receipt with any clothing gift.

KATE SPADE | TUMBLER, $18

A practical gift for the girl-on-the-go is this Kate Spade tumbler.  Every girl will love this gold polka dot design.

STYLE AT HOME (or any magazine subscription), $23.95

One fun idea is to buy an annual magazine subscription to her favourite publication.  As I love home decor, this magazine is on my wish list. 

MICHAEL KORS | WATCH, $279.25 

This gift is expensive, but if you’re looking to give an extravagant present, this Michael Kors watch is a winner.  With it’s prestigious name brand recognition and classic design, this time piece will be cherished for years to come.  I love that this specific watch is delicate and made of mixed precious metals (silver and rose gold).  It’s also half the price of many of the other Michael Kors designs.. although it is still really pricey!

URBAN DECAY | NAKED SMOKY PALETTE, $64

For the beauty guru in your life, Urban Decay palettes are the holy grail of eyeshadow.  With a wide selection of everyday neutral shades and glamorous shimmer shadows, she will be sure to make good use of this palette.

*As stated before, I am not sponsored by any of the companies mentioned above.
