Hash Kitchen

While on vacation in Scottsdale, Arizona my mom, sister and I were looking for a good place to have breakfast. As most of us do, I went right to yelp to find us a place, and one of the first couple of listings was Hash Kitchen! The name itself caught my attention, as I scrolled through the reviews and pictures on yelp I knew we had to go and I am so glad we did! This place was AMAZING, heres why!

First off, the yelp reviews do not do this place justice. As soon as you walk through the doors you instantly get the feel that this is the go-to place or breakfast/brunch in Scottsdale, the restaurant itself is very well lit with a modern feel. They have both indoor and outdoor seating to choose from. On the nice days the garage style windows slide up, so you have full access to Arizona’s largest Bloody Mary Bar! YES, I said the largest Bloody Mary Bar! For all of you Bloody Mary lovers this is the place for you! If Bloody Mary’s are not your thing don’t worry they didn’t leave you hanging. Their Mimosa flight and Prosecco Mash were so light and tasty! They also have Cereal Cocktails that that take you back to your youthful days but be advised they do have alcohol in them so make sure you order a virgin for your kids!

I do not have a single complaint about any of the food we ordered, everything was amazing, it all came out together and were big enough portions to share. There Cannoli Doughnuts are to die for seriously, my mouth is watering just writing this. I am a big cannoli lover and they blew me away, they were perfect. The Cinnamon Roll Pancakes were a huge hit for my girls, it was a stack of three big pancakes that the five of us couldn’t even finish half of!

Over all I was extremely impressed but Hash Kitchen, everything from their food, to their staff was top notch. It is hard to find restaurants that can work for all types of events from a lady’s day brunch, to a business meeting in the middle of the week, Hash Kitchen works for everyone. The best part which I wish we could have enjoyed is they do they do have a DJ that plays on Sundays for brunch and some holidays! What a cool twist to Sunday Brunch!  If you are near one in Scottsdale, Arizona you have to stop in and check it out! Don’t forget to hashtag them in all your pictures! #Hashhashbaby

The Perfect Backpack for Moms!

Diaper bag shopping might be one of the most stressful items you will shop for. You want that perfect bag that will fit everything you need but doesn’t really look like a diaper bag. Believe me I totally get it! My kids are not in diapers anymore, but I wanted a backpack that was stylish and could hold a lot of stuff for when I travel with my 4 and 5-year olds. Here is what I found!

I went to a lot of big box stores, spent hours looking on websites and Pinterest until I found the Chelsea Downtown Chic Diaper Backpack from Skiphop! Let me start by saying this bag is amazing! It was everything I wanted, it was stylish that it wouldn’t look awkward carrying it while I was dressed up and still looks great as I strolled DC and Phoenix! One of the thing I love about this bag was the material it was made out of, it is the perfect material for moms, anything that gets on it just whites right off.  In Arizona my family and I went on a Jeep tour of the Broken Arrow Trail in Sedona, my bag had a lot of red dust all over it and all I had to do was whip it right off.

The other thing that was really important to me when I was looking at backpacks was that the straps had to be comfortable and didn’t dig into my shoulders when too much stuff was in it. This bag met all my expectations, not once did I have to readjust the bag or take it off to give my back and shoulders a break. The cup holders on the side made it easy for my kids to take the water bottles in and out of the bag themselves without needing my help, MAJOR PLUS!Inside my diaper bag

This bag has a lot of room inside so no matter if you have babies or older kids you will not run out of room for all their stuff. On my flight to Arizona the bag held, 2 Nintendo DS’s, an iPad, 2 kids headphones, my camera, activities to keep my girls busy on our flights, a gallon size bag of snacks, 2 water bottles, my little make up bag, and my wallet. Plus, I still had some room if I needed to put anything else in there! It fit everything I needed without making them have to carry their own bag, which we all know I would have had to carry at some point.

If you are a brand new mom or a mom that will be doing a lot of traveling this coming summer I highly recommend this bag. This bag is perfect for moms of  multiple children and children of different ages, it will fit everything that they both will need. It does come with a changing mat, along with the straps that give you the option to have the bag hook onto a stroller. Skip*Hop did an amazing job designing this bag with moms in mind, they truly made sure that you would not have to buy a different bag at the different stages of child raising! Great job Skip*Hop, I am in love with my bag!

I hope you found this helpful!
