Review: Osmo Creative & Coding Starter Kit

As a mom, I always worry about my kids having too much screen time, but not when I know they are playing with Omso!

If you have never heard of Osmo, it’s basically an extension of an ipad/fire tablet. It includes educational/interactive apps, and games which are designed for children to enjoy from ages 5 to 12.

There are so many kits to choose from, click here to see them all. Once you decide which kit your child will love, setting up your Osmo is super easy. All you have to do is download the app, put your device in the compatible Osmo Base, and then put the red reflector over the device camera, and you’re all set to play & have fun!

 

Review on the Osmo Coding Start Kit, and the Monster Creative Kit on Livin' Life with Style

 

My daughter is 6, and loves to draw, so she has the Osmo Creative Starter Kit.

Included in this set is the Osmo Base, Creative Board, 4 Erasable Markers, and a fuzzy pouch

There are 3 games you can play with in this kit:

Monster: The cute little animated Monster is named Mo. He tells kids what to draw, then uses his wand to pull the child’s drawings onto the screen.

Newton: You can solve physics puzzles by drawing lines, or placing objects, like a pen or a toy in front of the screen.

Masterpiece: You can transform a photo into easy to draw lines to create amazing artwork.

I have to say my daughter’s favourite game is definitely the Monster. She loves Mo, and gets so excited to draw something, and see it come to life on the screen!

As for my son who is 9, he really loves the Osmo Coding Kit. He is actually learning about coding in school right now, so this kit couldn’t have come at a more perfect time.

The coding set includes the Osmo Base for the ipad, or Fire Tablet, and 31 Coding Block Set.

This kit comes with 3 games as well:

Coding Awbie: Teaches logic and problem solving. You have to string together commands to guide Awbie on a stawbie-munching adventure by helping him shake trees, and munch on delicious strawberries as he goes!

Coding Jam: Perfect for music lovers. You arrange coding blocks in patterns and loops to compose your own music

Coding Duo: This is a great game to help with their puzzle solving skills. Awbie and Mo will work together on their adventure, overcoming challenges that require critical thinking skills to overcome. You solve advanced side-by-side puzzles either with a friend, or on your own.

My son loves to play the Coding Awbie game. He loved using the coding blocks to move the monster around the map, and perform actions in game.

Sweater: Shein  //   Jeans: Nordstrom     Hat: Gap    //   Purse:   Amazon

 

Wow! It’s the end of the month already, October has flown by! I can’t believe on Sunday it’s November 1st. The 4Q for influencers are very busy with holiday content, and I have a lot of good stuff coming your way. This weekend I need to put up our Christmas tree to start shooting some content for brands that are due in the upcoming weeks. Christmas is my favourite time of year, so I don’t mind getting my tree up early.

We had our family photos last weekend, and we couldn’t of asked for better weather. I am so excited to get the proofs back to see how they turned out. I am hoping there are a few good ones to use for our annual Christmas card.

This colour block sweater is neutral in colour that will go with so much in my closet. I purchased my first fedora hat, and I am a little late with the trend, but I am loving it.

Sweater: Shein  //     Jeans: Urban Planet       //   Shoes: Urban Planet      //     Bag: Kate Spade    // Sunglasses: Tory Burch

Hope you’re all enjoying the weekend. Mine has been off to a great start. I got up early to clean the house, go grocery shopping, and run some errands before we headed out to my son’s hockey practice this afternoon.

We still need to get the kids halloween costumes today. Unfortunately, they won’t be going out  due to covid, but we are going to have a little halloween hunt in our house instead. We told the kids yesterday, and thankfully they understood, and weren’t too disappointed.  It makes me still sad though, as they only have a few more years left to go trick or treating.  This also reminds me I still need to pick up candy, lol!

Love this leopard sweater. It’s nice and thick, and super cozy. I think I need to stop buying so many leopard items as my closet is looking very leopard. What can I say, I just love leopard print so much!

 

Happy Saturday everyone!

Dress: Shein (similar/similar)     Shoes: Winners (similar)      Purse: Charming Charlie      Sunglasses: Tory Burch

 

This dress is hands down my favourite dress of the summer! There is so much I love about it. I love the pattern, the fit, the style, the colours…everything. This dress is also great to transition into fall with. It would look great with a cute pair of boots, and a moto jacket.

Have you started fall shopping? I have only gotten a few pieces so far. I need to do some more online shopping this week. There are a couple items I really want that are out of stock right now, but I hope they get more sizes in soon.

Hope you all had a great Labour Day weekend. We didn’t do too much, except go to my in-laws so the kids could get in one last swim. We also took the kids fishing too, but they never caught anything. I still can’t believe we are in September already, and how quick the weather has changed.

Dress: Shein (similar/similar/similar)   Shoes: Steve Madden    Bag: Gap (similar)  Sunglasses: Ray ban

Is it just me, or did the summer just fly by?! We didn’t get around to do half of what we had planned for the summer because of COVID, which is such a shame since the weather was so perfect. As the school year approaches, while I am still nervous, I am also excited to get back into routine, and for the kids to see their friends again.

When I saw this dress, I knew it would be perfect for summer. Who doesn’t love white and blue stripes? Plus add in some ruffles, and you’ve got a really cute dress. I should have taken a photo of the back, because it’s an open back, and ties up into a bow around the neck. Let’s not forget about the cute little pom poms on the trim of the ruffles as well.

Shein gave me a code for you guys if you wanted to grab this dress, or if you see something else you love. Use code LLSW15 for 15% off your order.

Happy Canada Day to all my fellow Canadians!! I am showing my love for our country by wearing this beautiful red floral dress from Shein!

There are so many things that I love about this dress, starting with the fact that it has pockets!!! It’s so hard to find a dress with pockets, so this one is pretty unique. I also love the tie front detail which is super cute!

This dress is flowy, airy, and great for summer. I am wearing a small, and it fits me perfectly. Definitely true to size. I have worn it so much already, and we still have 2 months left of summer! Shein is offering free shipping for only 24 hours, so it’s a great time to order!

Hope everyone has a fun, but safe Canada Day!
