logo (47)

Congrats to Kelly Nicholson *Product was received. Opinions are mine. Certainly cannot believe that Easter will be here soon! It is one of my most favorite holidays :) But, with all the candy, stuffed bunnies and eggs, we can't forget Easter's true meaning. So I try to keep that in focus on that special Easter day, too! With that said, what do you get your kids for Easter? Do you overindulged them with chocolate, candies and stuffed bunnies? Or do you take the simpler path and give a creative gift or small basket of assorted candies? We tend to be in the middle on this one. I never over do it and I always try to add something fun, educational or a toy to get the kids outside!! Did you know that GourmetGiftBaskets.com has awesome Easter baskets? They do and we received a cool one the other day! The one we got was the Double Easter Basket and a seriously adorable (and delicious!) Easter Chick Specialty Cake!! When this basket was pulled out of the box, my kids eyes lit … [Read more...]

  *Kohl’s provided me with a Kohl’s Gift Card. Opinions are my own. I love love love Kohl's! I have been an avid shopper there for years. When I lived in Gresham, Oregon, I had one sooo close to me that I went there weekly, no lie! Now, I live a bit further from a Kohl's, while it is good for my pocketbook, I sure do miss it! So, I shop online ;) It is the 10th Anniversary of the daisy fuentes collection at Kohl's and I was able to shop some of her pieces! Daisy’s spring collection is ADORABLE!!! I feverishly shopped online and found some amazing tops, necklace and some black leggings! I also picked up two pairs of totally adorable sandals!!! Woot! The first outfit I have to share with you is with the daisy fuentes® Slubbed Burnout Pullover in Haze. I love how soft this sweater shirt is! I also love the little peek-a-boo that it gives! Perfect for a Spring morning or afternoon! I wear it with a long tank underneath. I am … [Read more...]

Shoebuy.com: your one-stop shop for footwear and accessories! (Coupon Code)


*I received a gift code to review the Shoebuy.com product/service mentioned above. Regardless, I only recommend products or services that I believe are good for my readers. I am disclosing this in accordance with the FTC We all like new shoes, am I right? I love getting a new pair of shoes! But, since having kids, they come first. I am sure all of you mama's out there can relate! My little boy was in need of a new pair of shoes. I was looking online and at local stores, trying to figure out what I should get him. I asked him, but he is a boy and did not care, LOL. So.... I had to find a great pair of shoes that would be good for school and every day wear. Shoebuy.com is one place I searched, but unlike the other places I browsed, I actually loved the selections they had for boys! Very cute, top name brand shoes. Soon, I had found the perfect pair for my little boy! Yay! I purchased the Keen Alamosa WP shoes for my little guy. I really liked these because they looked like … [Read more...]

CONGRATS TO Anne E. Perry *samples received. Opinions are mine. I am starting to go more and more natural with products for my family. I am starting with Essential Oils and all-natural skincare. I was sent a few samples of Ora's Amazing Herbal skincare products to try out and was very pleased with them. I wish I had more! I was sent the Touchy Skin Salve, Body Powder and Baby Powder. The Touchy Skin Salve is great stuff. It is a greenish color and when you touch it and put it on your skin, it kind of melts into your skin. It is greasy, but it really moisturizes the skin. I use this on my baby's skin as it is horribly dry and he has really bad eczema. This is great for people with sensitive skin. It did not irritate my baby's skin at all.  This is unscented with no essential oils and the addition of emollient castor oil and anti-inflammatory licorice root, this gentle formula can treat ailments and dryness for even the fussiest of skin. Available in a coconut oil-free … [Read more...]

We all make New Year resolutions, me included. But, I rarely follow through with them :/ I am so bad like that! I want to get in shape, I really do, but finding the time and energy is a whole other thing... At the beginning of this week, I ordered the Brazil Butt Lift exercise program. I saw some great reviews on it and thought, why not? So, as soon as that arrives at my doorstep, I will be starting it! Excited!!! So, since I will be working out I did need workout clothing. Kohl's sent me some really comfy yoga pants to review and a pair of cute black shoes! Now maybe I can work out and look cute doing it? That is a long shot.. I received the Marika Magical Balance Butt Booster Performance Pants and Croft & Barrow® Sport Shoes - Women in Black . Like I said, they are super cute and both are really comfy. First I will talk about the Marika Magical Balance Butt Booster Pants. I was not too thrilled with the support that these offered. While they are completely comfortable … [Read more...]
