Leyna Lorelei- 2nd born, middle sister, hair twirler, obsessive snuggler, paci-aholic, bossy, nurturing, and addicted to pickles.

She’s sugar and spice and everything and nothing I ever expected my daughter to be.


This post is sponsored by Poppy Drops, which is awesome because I love when companies I love want to work with me and give free stuff to you.

She’s her big brother’s biggest fan and greatest enemy. She’s a wonderful babysitter for her little brother. And she’s her daddy’s best helper.


She’s tough and she’s delicate. She loves pink and sword-fighting with the same ferocity.

She will spend half a Saturday in the garage with her very own hammer, getting dirty…


And the other half digging through my makeup bag.

She’s big into the makeup thing these days. And the jewelry thing. She likes a nice earring to accessorize her bike helmet (which is really just a hand-me-down with Cars characters all over it).


Except she doesn’t have pierced ears, and she won’t sit still enough for me to paint her nails. She’s 3, going on 13. But I want to keep her just 3 as long as possible.


We’ve been having a ton of fun together with Poppy Drops earrings, nail art, tattoos, and perfume.

They are made from vegetable dye, and other non-toxic stuff. They are fun and easy. No piercing, paint, or icky chemicals required.


The earrings are our favorite, with the perfume stick coming in a close second. The sweet little tattoo earrings surprisingly last well over a week- much longer than stick-on earrings. The perfume stick is soft and has a gentle scent, but enough of one to make her feel really special.


There is SO much I love about each of my children- boy and girl. There are special moments that aren’t defined by their gender, and I’m totally down with painting my sons’ nails, and such. But this is a special little ritual just for Leyna and me for now.

I’ve gotten to know Shelly, the founder of Poppy Drops, and I just adore her spirit and her mission. This is a great company with great products that I think will give so many parents and daughters a special bonding experience.

So I’m thrilled to give you all an opportunity to win an entire year’s worth of Poppy Drops earrings, along with a sampling of everything else they have to offer!


And if you don’t win, or can’t wait to find out if you do, you can order all of these things for really great prices on the Poppy Drops website. The earrings are just $7/pack. Just saying these would make lovely party favors or card-stuffers for birthdays. So many fun ideas!

  1. This sounds so fun! I think it’s just the right little something special for my little one when she becomes a big sister in the spring!

  2. My three year old daughter and first born. Each day we spend together is like me watching myself as a child. She has my personality through and through. Maybe she will share with her baby sister?!

  3. I would love to win this for my dd Addison she is my mast baby & my only girl. She loves to play with my hair & follow everywhere I go.

  4. I love these so, so much! We have no plans on getting Lila’s ears pierced anytime soon, but I am sure Lila would LOVE these! I also have a feeling her and Leyna would be BFFs based on how you described Leyna above. 🙂

  5. My daughter is allergic to all metals. We have had her ears pierced several times and sadly she can’t wear real earrings. She would love to have these since her 3 sisters are able to wear regular ones and she feels left out.

  6. My little girl would love these! She likes clip ins but they hurt after a while. Stickers never last, and Poppy drops sound great!

  7. I’d like to share this with my daughter. Since her little brother arrived, I try to carve out special time with her and this would be perfect.

  8. Leyna sounds so much like my daughter who loves batman and frozen equally. She loves to wear her Dusty Crophopper shirt with her tutu and runs around in my heels while singing the Batman theme song. She will be 3 in December.

  9. My daughter who just turned three at the beginning of the month would absolutely go bananas for this!!! The products sound absolutely wonderful! Fingers crossed 🙂

  10. What an amazing idea! My daughter (Dylan Rose, who just turned 3 in August) has recently become quite interested in earrings, and necklaces and rings…but has been a little rough and tumble for the clip-ons that were gifted to her. The ‘tattoo earrings’ would be a brilliant option for her! My little girl… chasing and capturing the creepiest of crawling bugs, giggling and exclaiming her love for them, all while wearing her streams of necklaces and dress-up heels! I’ve no idea what the future holds for her… everything, I suppose. 🙂

  11. I would love to get these for my own 3 year old! I’m sure once baby sister arrives and is a little older she’ll want in on the action, too, but for now, it would be wonderful to share with my little feisty daughter.

  12. I have an almost 2 year old that is becoming more and more of a girly girl every day. I can’t wait for dress up, nail painting, and things girly girl because I know it may not last long so I’m looking forward to soaking up every moment I get while I get them.

  • He demands cuddle time. Always has. It's inconvenient some days, but he's not about to let himself get lost in the shuffle. I'm glad he reminds me to slow down. #loloyolo
  • Sweet big baby 💙
  • Arlo chose Kendall when he was just 8 weeks old. They have a special bond. Looking forward to reuniting them after our @happy.loud.life RV trip around the country. Until then, Arlo is going to an amazing foster family who has promised to send us lots of pictures and updates.
  • Those eyes 😍
  • Meanwhile, this one turns 4 in 5 days. 😭😭😭 #timeisanasshole
  • A little sad he's almost too big for the @dockatot Deluxe+ and toy bar. Can you believe he's 7 months old now? 😫😭👋🏻 #dockatot
  • He always comes home in the middle of nap time and climbs in bed with us.
  • I always keep teething oil in my bag these days. He has FOUR top teeth trying to come through. 😫I try not to stick dirty fingers in his mouth, especially right after I pump gas. 🤢So I also keep some @handzies soap and water wipes with me. #inmypurse
