Kim Kardashian West has recently been in the spotlight for her home design—it's incredibly minimalist, with lots of white, bright (but barely there) details—and it got many mamas wondering: How do multiple kiddos live there? Because no matter how much we love minimalism, it can be hard to maintain when toys seem to pop up out of nowhere.

Well, she gave us a sneak peek into her kids' playroom today on Instagram Stories. "You guys always say my house is so minimal—well, you guys haven't seen my playroom," shares Kardashian West.



So now we get it. Among the super-cool details (hello, concert stage and movie projector), her four little ones do play with a ton of toys. Some toys, in fact, that our own kids play with!

Here are some of our favorite toys that we spotted in Kim Kardashian's playroom:

Melissa & Doug Wooden Grocery Store

melissa and doug grocery cart

One of Motherly mamas' favorite interactive play sets. Complete with a hand cranked conveyor belt, a beeping scanner and swipe machine. Plus, it looks beautiful in any playroom. (It was adorable watching Kim show us how it works.)

$175.10

CAT Construction Fleet Dump Truck

Sesame Street Big Bird Toy

This super soft plush toy is a classic with a twist. Yes, it's Big Bird, your child's friend from Sesame Street, but with an artsy twist by Kaws. It's just a tiny detail in the toy's eyes that makes it different and so much cooler.

The end of my twin pregnancy is around the corner and my skin is being put to the test. I previously shared all the products I use to keep my belly moisturized and (hopefully) stretch mark-free, but I've come across a new oil that happens to be one of Meghan Markle's favorite products from her pregnancy. So of course I had to test it out. I may not be royalty (or former royalty) but my skin deserves the best of the best.

Here's proof that at 35 weeks pregnant—but measuring more like 45 weeks—I'm keeping my belly glowing like a full moon, or so I like to think.


The stretch mark oil is made by Avishi Organics, a company that focuses on ayuverdic therapeutic skin care treatments. Their products are the culmination of years of research and are all made with certified organic ingredients that leave skin radiant and glowing. All of their products are pregnancy and baby safe, which was a key thing for me before I set out to test them.

Here is what I thought of it:

Intensive stretch mark oil

Avishi Organics Intensive Stretch Mark Oil

Compared to other stretch mark oils I've used in the past, this one has a much stronger scent. I thought that was going to put me off, but it's so good I find myself rubbing the leftovers on my hands and sniffing them throughout the day. The oil absorbs super fast and doesn't stain clothes. So far I've been applying once a day, however it's recommended to apply twice daily for 8-12 weeks to help existing stretch marks fade faster, which I'm planning to do when the inevitable happens.

So is it worth it? My skin has been super soft and moisturized since I started applying it regularly. I've also noticed my belly is less itchy than it was a week ago, which I take is all the nourishing products in the oil working their magic on my skin. The bottle is only 4 ounces, which makes the price a bit steep, but I've only needed two pumps of it to cover my entire belly so far, so I think the small bottle will go a long way.

Because I've seen changes in my skin already and also because the smell of it has turned into a pleasant surprise, I highly recommend this to other pregnant people with itchy and tight skin.

Road trips can be some of the most rewarding vacations for families. They are generally less rushed than plane trips, there is more room for open-ended exploration, and there is a certain sense of adventure that's hard to come by in everyday life.

But as memorable as they are for kids, they can also be a pain for parents. Countless bathroom stops, whines of boredom, and cries of "are we there yet?" can make any parent question why they decided on a road trip.

At the end of the day, you have to survive your time in the car and there's no judgement here if that means a little screen time. But I know some of my favorite childhood vacation memories are of time in the car when I had my parents' attention. Children can still have that today, that time when they're engaged not just entertained, it just takes a little planning and experimenting to find what works for you!

Here are 12 Montessori-inspired, screen-free items to help your children and you have a positive experience on your next road trip:

Nenos kids headphones

Nenos kids headphones

Audiobooks provide the same easy entertainment as tv, but without the screens. Child-safe headphones are great so you can listen to that perfect road trip playlist while your child hears their favorite story.

For young kids, audiobooks are often more successful if they are already familiar with the story, so you may want to read the story a couple of times before your trip.

$12.99

PlayMonster lacing + tracing

A. G. Smith train station sticker activity book

$5.99

Wee Society travel diary + journal

Wee Society travel diary + journal
