The MineStamp Textile Marker: a parental must-have!

We here at the desipolitan household recently completed the gauntlet of parental endurance - aka back-to-school week. With all the labelling of my kids' clothes, lunch boxes, backpacks, hell - every movable part semi-connected to their school lives, my right hand was rapidly forming itself into a cramped claw. Let's face it, other than their actual bodies, we have to label literally everything, in preparation for when they will (inevitably) lose or misplace every. single. item. To date, I'd been relying on adhesive labels and textile markers. Enter the MineStamp Textile Marker. Not to overstate things, but the it has been a game changer.
I have one dedicated for each of my children's names. After the minor hiccup of the initial set up of the stamps, for which I had to google instructions (the product packaging is not at all helpful), these stamps are fantastic! Once I watched this helpful video, I was able to quickly set up each stamp for each child. Individual letters and a set of tweezers are included with each stamp. They do work best on white or light-colored clothing, ideally applied where there is double fabric (i.e. a cuff or a collar). But I have run several loads of laundry and the stamps are holding up well. Supposedly the stamps should last fifty washes. When they do fade off (I wash my kids' clothes in hot water, because, well, boys...) I can easily just re-stamp. Each stamp costs $17 and can be purchased from grommet.com. They are presently sold out on Amazon.

Highly recommend!

Meet Queen Jetsun Pema of Bhutan

The young, beautiful, and fashionable Queen of Bhutan, a country secluded from the world's limelight due to its remoteness, has already been generating a stir ever since her marriage to the King and her rise to the position of Queen Consort. She is a powerhouse in her own right, and much loved by the Bhutanese people. However, on a fun and superficial level, she has also drawn favorable comparisons to the Duchess of Cambridge, so much so, that she is sometimes referred to as the "Kate Middleton of the Himalayas".
So who is this Himalayan Queen? At 25-years-old, she is the youngest Queen Consort in the world. Like Kate, she was a commoner (though with an aristocratic lineage) and the daughter of a pilot. She is fashionable, athletic, and holds a university arts background. Additionally, she herself is a brand new mum, having recently given birth to a baby boy.
As with Wills and Kate, the King and Queen of Bhutan have always shown great respect for their country's cult…
