Cool Little Ones, is cool little moisture wicking clothes for all day play. They are perfect for Summer, travel or really, anytime.

Cool Little Ones is inspired by the idea of little ones playing outside, being creative and exploring all that the world has to offer.

During the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, Glenna Devonport did what most were doing and went on multiple walks a day with her kids. Despite trying to take early or late walks before it got too hot, Glenna noticed that both her boys were always sweating. She thought, “If we as adults are wearing moisture wicking, cute workout clothes, why aren’t our Little Ones?” There sprouted the idea for a cute, comfortable and moisture wicking kids clothing line!

Cool Little Ones clothes can be worn on any outdoor adventure including the beach, pool, lake, sport practices, hiking, camping, playing at the park and are made for All Day Play! The clothes have cute designs, are easy to pack for trips, stretch, take up little space, are comfortable and they dry extremely fast!

The designs take the idea of a simple rash guard and elevate it to make it the most versatile piece of clothing in your Little One’s closet.  From basic tees, rash guards and shorts to onesies, dresses and headbands, your kids will be cool and comfortable this Summer!

Cool Little Ones are the perfect addition for any outdoor occasion and most of the items are UPF 50 Sun Safe. All of the products are proudly manufactured in the United States of America. Future goals include to have 100% of our clothes UPF 50 Sun Safe and to make more clothes out of recycled materials…and to expand across the country in 2024!

From the Hill by the Sea, a cookbook memoir by Chef Seadon Shouse

Real cooking is about following your heart rather than the recipe, because cooking is more than just a blending of ingredients from land, sea, and farm, according to Chef Seadon Shouse, the notable Nova Scotia chef who brought its cuisine to the Hoboken coast. He details his philosophy through recipes and memories, in From the Hill by the Sea, a cookbook-memoir. Chef Shouse is Executive Chef of Halifax Hoboken is both memoir and recipe for cooking and for life, educating the reader in Chef Seadon’s Nova Scotia-grown roots of foraging, hand-making, and cooking from the land with heart and soul.

Recipes feature unique twists on mackerel, oysters, salmon, periwinkle dishes. There’s even an open fire-roasted chicken recipe. The master chef introduces new techniques broken down into simple steps. Homespun sides like Biscuit Dough Boys (cooked on a stick), Bread and Butter Vegetable Pickles, Roasted Brussel Sprouts, Brown Sugar Bacon and his twist on Nova Scotia’s famous Blueberry Grunt delight the senses and create delectable, sustainable meals.

Chef Seadon’s recipes and stories hail from his childhood spent in Coastal Nova Scotia where the connection between food, land and sea is a direct and intimate experience. He encourages the reader to step out of their comfort zone and step into an ocean of possibility that opens up a whole new chapter for the exploratory, yet sustainability-minded cook.

From the Hill By the Sea will appeal to readers interested in finding new ways to cook fresh dishes, whether they forage or not. This book will delight the sustainably-minded cook, from beginner, intermediate to expert, as long as they are not afraid to put on a pair of rubber boots and slosh around in the proverbial culinary sea. The book can be purchased at Halifax Hoboken or the W Hoboken, or online at
