Easy LunchBoxes Review & Giveaway!*CLOSED*

Kelly Lester is the mind behind Easylunchboxes . As it was born out of Kelly’s innate ability to do things efficiently while on a shoestring budget, and her desire to send her daughters to school with simple, healthy food, with little to no extra packaging or ingredients. Her past struggle with weight control inspires her to teach and model healthy eating habits for her children, and has fueled her dedication to always send them off to school with a great lunch. Kelly's healthy lifestyle was recently featured on MOM TRENDS . I was sent a a pack of the food storage containers as well as a Purple Lunch bag to try.This system is so neat~as there are 3 compartments but only requires one lid!  The larger compartment will easily fit a sandwich~No More Squished sandwiches!  The 2 smaller containers are perfect for ships and fruit or cheese and crackers.The things that you can put in the Easy LunchBoxes in endless! These would be great to take to a Family Picnic, the p

Men and Dogs by Katie Crouch AudioBook Giveaway–3 Winners!*CLOSED*

About The Book~ Following her embraced debut, Girls in Trucks (2008), Crouch offers another southern tale in which Hannah Legare finds herself back in her hometown, Charleston Harbor, South Carolina, as her marriage, business, and life in San Francisco crumble. She soon begins to puzzle over an old mystery: her father Buzz’s mysterious disappearance more than 20 years earlier. Hannah retraces old ground, hoping to glean insights from the recollections of her mother, stepfather, brother, and family friends. Yet most residents of the town prefer to remember Buzz fondly, and view his disappearance during a routine fishing expedition as a tragic accident. Hannah, however, is still haunted by her father’s absence and the thought of the family dog drifting alone in the boat. Her quest to discover her father’s true fate provides clues to Hannah’s current problems, including her trouble being faithful to her husband, even as she realizes she may find information she never wanted

CitySlips Review & Giveaway!*CLOSED*

Have you heard of City Slips yet?  CitySlips are foldable ballet flats that come with their own protective carrying case.  I know that we all love pointy pumps and strappy stilettos but after awhile even though we know we look good~they feet start to ache!  Well~ Susie Levitt and Katie Shea were oh-so-familiar with the pain and that is how that company was founded. One too many encounters with shoeless socialites and barefooted babes led to their AH HA moment... CitySlips was born. These entrepreneurial sole-sisters came up with a concept and design that allowed women to carry back-up ballet flats comfortably, compactly, and conveniently. Juggling classroom term papers and corporate term sheets throughout their senior year of college, Susie and Katie enlisted the opinions of friends, the help of NYU professors, and the time of many NYC professionals and mentors. Nine months later (their baby, literally!), they now have a product that is funk-tional, fashionable and affordab

Save The TaTas Review & Giveaway!*CLOSED*

Imagine a World Without Cancer Have you heard of the Save the ta-tas yet?  The company was started by Julia Fikse as her Grandmother and Aunt lost their ta-tas to cancer but not them as they are survivors! And with Julia's help hopefully we can help find a cure.   As each purchase you make a portion of that sale goes towards the fight against cancer for research and education! Julia founded ta- tas Brand Clothing because she realized "the importance of promoting self beauty and confidence in the hearts of women battling breast cancer".  I have not lost any one to breast cancer but I recently lost my Mom to lung cancer so I know that when she lost all her hair she felt ugly even though I told her she was beautiful all the time.So I really think that the Save the ta-ta's would help with their self-esteem. Julia really had a great idea when she states that Cancer Sucks!  Not only does Save the ta-tas sell t-shirts for the whole

RandomLine SQUIGGLE On The Go Review & Giveaway!

It’s Tyranno-rific!! I was recently sent a Squiggle On The Go Dinosaurs Drawing Pad to review. Let me tell you this little pad is just too cute~as soon as I saw it I was so impressed! As it is so easy to draw Dinosaurs with just a squiggle line! You sign the wheel to see which one you are going to draw. This would be great to keep kids entertained when you are at a appointment,traveling or shopping. As each pad comes with a pencil that stores right on the top of the package! SQUIGGLE Dinosaurs On-The-Go is a doodling good time! It’s entertaining and encourages children’s creativity as they transform squiggly lines into dinosaurs. Can you draw an awesome allosaurus from a squiggle or how about a vicious velociraptor? Give it a try, spin the wheel and change the squiggle into the dinosaur you land on. My granddaughter loves this idea as she loves to draw~and now it is so much easier and is something that needs no batteries! It is great to take to t

Pawparazzi Review & Giveaway!*CLOSED*

Pawparazzi is the newest sensation in playful pets. They were created to add a bit of sophisticated celebrity to every little girl. Pawparazzi Pets are the celebrities that we wish all celebrities could be. They have talent and class, they approach the world with open hearts, and they support causes that make their world better. And, they’re not just friends, they’re fashion accessories! We hope Pawparazzi will be received in the way that they were intended – as a fun and funny caricature of celebrity. It’s about the fun of stardom without the baggage. With little pets as our celebrities we don’t fret about girls’ self-image or mimicking the less desired traits of pop-culture idols. Though I admit I’ve seen my daughter pretend to wag her tail – so I may be wrong about this! Girls can engage with Pawparazzi on many levels: They can READ about their pets in Pawparazzi Magazine and on this website. Their fashion DNA will be stimulated with trendy bags,

  The Power of Two Friendship Stone Pack enables the receiver to hold on to a tangible piece of your friendship. Regardless of how far apart you may be, The Friendship Stone is a strong reminder that your friendship is as unique and everlasting as the stone itself.
