Lookie Boo loves CHARM IT!

I fell in love with musical theater at an early age. My Mom had me in theater, dance and voice lessons well before preschool. I’ve always loved music, makeup and, of course, the costumes. One of my fondest memories of the theater was after the show on opening night, my family would be waiting for me with flowers, to tell me that I’d done well. Each show that I was in, my Mother bought me a small charm necklace to signify each play. I cherished them and loved the sentimentality of each one. I have no doubt that if CHARM IT! had been around when I was little, my Mom would have loved it. So, in an attempt to somewhat carry on the tradition, I found CHARM IT! for Ruby Mae. I love that you can customize each child’s bracelet or necklace and continue to build on them throughout their childhood. I decided to enlist Ruby’s help in picking out her first six charms (to get her started). The only issue we had was that she wanted them all. There is a wide assortment of charm designs to make any kind of girl happy.

With the Holidays right around the corner, CHARM IT! bracelets and necklaces would make a great gift for any little fashionista in your life. I love that CHARM IT! also offers adorable Gift Sets in different themes such as the Pretty Pink Princess Gift Set we are giving away!

We had a photo shoot last Sunday for our Holiday Style Editorial 2013 (coming soon!) with Amanda Bellamy this past Sunday, so I decided to wait to surprise her with her CHARM IT! bracelet until then, so we could capture Ruby’s excitement. I think Amanda did a beautiful job and I love that we will be able to add to the bracelet through out her life to celebrate special occasions.

Citrus Lane Giveaway!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Citrus Lane.

I first heard of Citrus Lane via Instagram, as it seems many of our followers are already Citrus Lane fans! So when my first Citrus Lane box arrived, I was excited to officially join the cool club. For those of you who are unfamiliar, Citrus Lane was created to help parents discover innovative products, share information, ask questions and find inspiration. Citrus Lane’s monthly boxes are care packages that help moms and dads on their parenting journeys. Every product that is included in these boxes has been recommended and reviewed by both the Citrus Lane advisory board and community. The products are based off of real recommendations from real parents that solve real problems. Pretty awesome, right?!

The kids love getting mail almost as much as I do, so all they needed to see was a package on our doorstep and cue jumping up and down and “open it Mama!”s.



20131126-154940.jpgHere is all of the awesome that arrived in our first Citrus Lane box!


This cloud-b Dreamz to go Octo was definitely everyone’s favorite thing in the box! However the Bops sea salt chips were a close second. I loved being able to test a snack out on the kids without having to commit to buying it in a large quantity! Especially since Jude is such a picky eater, we never really know what hes going to enjoy or not. Let the record show that he chowed down on these. The kids are super into music and (surprise) banging on things repeatedly, so the rhythm sticks were celebrated by them as well. The box arrived at the perfect time, a rainy afternoon. It kept the kids busy all afternoon and evening. Before bed we looked through Lady Bug magazine and the kids loved the illustrations. It’s awesome that the box also included a voucher for 3 more free issues!! I found the value over all of Citrus Lane to be very high. I love that it gives us the opportunity to try the latest and greatest, for less! Additionally, Citrus Lane recently launched the Citrus Lane Shop. The Citrus Lane Shop is stocked with the most popular Citrus Lane products. I love being able to access the honest reviews in the shop from tons of other parents! I’m excited that Citrus Lane is giving away a $25 credit to the new Citrus Lane Shop to one our readers! Simply, follow the Raffle Copter directions below to enter.

A winner will be picked 12/4/13. Entrants must be 18 years and older and residents of the continental U.S.

Pumpkin Masters Giveaway!

photo 3

This past weekend my family and I celebrated fall with one of our favorite traditions, carving pumpkins. My husband Michael always gets into activities like this, sometimes dare I say…a little too much. So when I told him that we would be using Pumpkin Masters carving kits he was more than excited. He studied the booklets, examined the tools and made his decision of which pumpkins he was going to attempt. The kids were excited as well and I like that the Pumpkin Masters carving tools were efficient but not scary. My least favorite part of carving is scooping out the pumpkin guts and I have to say that the little plastic scooper that comes with these kits are extremely effective!  We had such a great time sitting outside carving our pumpkins, listening to David Bazan (not sure why, it just felt right) and eating candy corn.
