Belle Baby Carrier Giveaway



My husband and I are expecting our 2nd child, a boy, in January. After we had Mahayla we were undecided whether or not to have anymore children. Unfortunately, we got rid of a lot of baby supplies. So here we are having to buy them all over again 2 years later! One of the baby items we had that couldn't live without was our baby carrier. Mahayla had colic and one of the only ways we found to soothe her was to carry her around in a sling or her baby carrier. Belle Baby Carriers recently sent me one of their organic baby carriers and it is wonderful!

Belle Baby Carriers offers several different color/pattern options to choose from. Belle Baby Carriers are easy to use and are one size fits all. Belle Baby Carriers helps promote bonding by ensuring direct contact between you and your baby by not have any fabric between the two of you. Your baby is able to ride either forward or rear facing. I love that Belle Baby Carriers are machine washable (for the diaper accidents that tend to happen).
 
Belle Baby Organic Carriers are made from certified Organic cotton and hemp blended fabric. The fabric is lightweight and breathable ( a must for our Florida weather). Belle Baby Carriers are ideal for babies that weigh between 8-30 lbs. Most other carriers I've used would eventually cause my back or neck to hurt from the weight. Belle Baby Carriers use an independent waist belt and cross-over should strap that helps transfer the weight off your shoulders and down to your hips for increased comfort and reduced strain. (Awesome!)

Belle Baby Carriers have been featured in several national magazines and  worn by celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Jessica Alba, and Nicole Kidman! Belle Baby Carriers has also received numerous industry rewards including the 2008 Creative Child Seal of Excellence, the Sweet Pea Baby Seal of Approval, and the JPMA Innovation of the Year finalist.  Belle Baby Carriers is offering FREE SHIPPING right now during their Dog Days of Summer Sale so stop by and check them out.



Don't just take my word for, you can research baby carriers on Fresh DealsFresh Deals is a new way to shop for those must have items. Fresh Deals features product reviews, promotions, online deals, and Q & A discussion board so that you can effectively research a product before you buy it. No more blindly buying a product and turn around and hate it. If you own your own business, you can even have your product or promotion featured on Fresh Deals to help spread the word.

Win It: Belle Baby Carriers is offering one of my followers a Belle Baby Carrier of their own ($99.95 value)! All you have to do is visit Belle Baby Carriers and let me know which design/color you'd want!

Scribble It Gift Card Giveaway!



We've been wanting to redecorate Mahayla's bathroom but hadn't quite figured out what we were going to do. I decided that since Mahayla loves her rubber ducky collection so much that we'd do a ducky theme. I also thought that since our baby due in January is a boy, it would be unisex that way its appropriate for both kids. I've been scouting items online to redo her bathroom and I came across Scribble It.

Scribble It offers vinyl lettering decor, wall art, and metal art that is available in both pre-made designs or you can design your own wall art. I recently got the "rub, a dub, dub" vinyl lettering for Mahayla's bathroom. They offer a huge variety of colors to choose from as well....I got purple since that's Mahayla's favorite color. the vinyl design comes with easy to read instructions and I found it pretty simple to apply. It does require an extra set of hands to help hold and place the design in the right place and make it as level as possible.



Scribble It designs are available in several different sizes and most are available for customization.They also offer holiday designs and decor that would be perfect for the upcoming holiday seasons. Scribble It's designs are reasonably priced and ship within 24 hours from the time of purchase. Scribble It offers a free decal with every purchase and free shipping is available for purchases of $65 or more. Remember to check their website often to see what the deal of week is!

Win It: Scribble It is offering one of my readers a $15 gift card good towards their purchase! All you have to do is visit Scribble It and let me know which design you'd want!

Baby Rock Apparel Review




I love finding "rocker" clothes for Mahayla. She's such a little rock star and has been jammin' since before she was born. She actually got her first drum set when she was 6 months old! Her favorite shoes are One Star's that are black with red flames on them; of course she always wears them with pink or purple socks. Baby Rock Apparel recently sent me a cute tee shirt for Mahayla that said "Drama Queen: Just like Mommy" on it. The drama queen part is soooo her..........not the mommy part.
 

Baby Rock Apparel offers a  wide variety of infant and childrens clothes, infant shoes, hats and fedora's. They have a "Boob Man" onesie I want to get for our little boy that is due in January. Baby Rock Apparel offers quality, affordable, and stylish outfits for our "mini-me's". Baby Rock Apparel makes for a wonderful present and is available gift wrapped in a Baby Rock Apparel lunch box.

Baby Rock Apparel offers free shipping for orders of $75 or more. Right now you can get 15% off your order if you use the coupon code "MAHAYLA" between now and October 25, 2009. So hurry up and order your "mini-me" some rockin' clothes!

They are available in 2 designs and have several color options that are sure to  become your little diva's favorite outfit. Michelle, creator of  Little Diva Tutus, sent Mahayla "Hannah's Ladybug Tutu" set. She wore this costume all day when she got it, but she thought the antenne's looked better on her daddy:)

PlasmaCar Giveaway!!!


I'm so excited about this giveaway! I received my PlasmaCar in the mail about 2 weeks ago and I'm not sure whose played with it the most, Mahayla or us! PlasmaCar is an innovative mobile car that is powered by the never-ending energy sources we call our children! The PlasmaCar is built out of durable plastic and has no pedals, buttons, or batteries which means no maintainence costs and is easy to assemble. The part that I love is that PlasmaCar is also adult friendly and holds weights up to 220lbs on a flat smooth surface (hence my earlier remark about us having fun with it).

PlasmaCar works by a combination of centrifugal force, gravity, friction, and our childs (or our own) energy. The PlasmaCar is propelled by turning the steering wheel back and forth continuously. We've spent the last couple of weekends riding our PlasmaCar in the driveaway. The PlasmaCar is a fun and safe outdoor/indoor activity for even my little Mahayla because it only can go as fast as Mahayla can make it go (max of 3.1 yards/sec). However, it is not recommended that you use the PlasmaCar on hardwood or laminate floors. The PlasmaCar is available in five fun colors. I received the red PlasmaCar which we named "Red Rover".



PlasmaCar has won several industry awards such as the 2001 Gold Medal award at the International Patent Fair, the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Seal Award (2005),  the Today's Parent Top Toy award, and the Neighbourhood Toy Stores of Canada Gold Star Award.

Win It: PlasmaCar is giving away a PlasmaCar to one of my readers! ($69.95 value) All you have to do is visit the PlasmaCar website and watch their video and let me know what color PlasmaCar you'd want!

You've Been Sentenced Family Game Giveaway

In a society where both parents not only work full time, its a necessity, and our children have become "lock-key" we have struggled to find ways to reconnect with not only our spouses but our children. There is a growing number of families who have instituted "Family Game Night" in order to re-establish that stretched connection and become present. I have come across a wonderful family friendly and educational game to add to our "Family Game Night" collection, You've Been Sentenced!

You've Been Sentenced! is a creative language game that uses pentagon-shaped cards that contain conjugations of funny words, famous names, and places. Each player is dealt 10 cards, where the players goal is to build grammatically correct and justifiable sentences while trying to score the most points per round.  Once you've made your sentence, you must defend your sentence creation to the other players that it is grammatically correct. The other players then vote on whether or not the sentence is correct or not. The players whose sentence was considered correct will be awarded the points for the cards used. The game is great not only for adults, but also for school aged children (8 and up) who are learning sentence structures. It encourages children to be use both their creativity and language skills and it definitely stimulates interest and increase motivation.


One of my favorite things about the game is the expansion pack of cards that are available. The expansion pack topics include pop culture, sci-fi fantasy, sports, Readers Digest National Word Power Challenge, & gourmet cuisine. My personal favorite is the Sci-Fi fantasy expansion pack. There are literally endless sentence possibilities so the game is never the same. You've Been Sentenced! is also available in a classroom addition and talks are in the works for a television game show! You've Been Sentenced! has won acclaim from numerous industry leaders including: Seal of Excellence from the Creative Child Magazine, Dr. Toy Best Products, Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Seal Award, FAO Schwartz Toy Audition Winner, and the MENSA Society's Parenting for High Potential magazines, Resource Roundup Pick!

Win it: Donald McNeill, CEO and Chairman of McNeill Designs for Brighter Minds, is offering 4 of my followers the opportunity to win You've Been Sentenced! to add to their "Family Game Night" collection!

Dove Body Wash with Nutrium Moisture Review

Photobucket

I never knew how bad some body washes and soaps can be for your skin. All regular body washes cause or contribute to dry skin damage. Current body washes actually damage proteins and lipids in the skin’s outer layer which can lead to the loss of moisture. When skin lacks proper moisture, dryness, tightness and irritation/redness can occur. Some existing body wash are focused on minimizing protein damage and alleviating visual symptoms of moisture loss by adding heavy moisturizing ingredients that sit on top of skin. While these additives help mask dry skin damage, they do not address the deeper problem of lipid damage. 

The new Dove Body Wash collection contains NutriumMoisture™ technology that cares for surface skin ten layers deep. Unlike other body washes, this first-of-its-kind body wash technology takes a dual approach to healthy, nourished skin by preserving both proteins and lipids during cleansing. Only Dove contains NutriumMoisture™, a breakthrough formula of soybean oil and natural lipids.

I recently was contacted by Dove to review their new line of body washes with NutriumMoisture. I received a bottle each of their new Dove Bodywashes with NutriumMoisture for gentle exfoliating, deep moisture, and sensitive skin. I would have to say that my favorite is the gentle exfoliating. Something about those little exfoliating moisture beads makes me feel cleaner. My skin is always so dry and flaky but after using the Dove NutriumMoisture gentle exfoliating body wash my skin feels soft and revived!

Dove NutriumMoisture body washes are available at your local drug stores, chain retailer, and grocery stores for around $5 a bottle. I encourage you to try the New Dove and see which NutriumMoisture body wash is your favorite.
