Mini Boden Review & $25 GC Giveaway

Disclosure: I received a credit at Boden USA to purchase some items. As always all opinions expressed are my own.

NEW YEAR (1)

I’m no fashionista – but my daughter? She can effortlessly put together an outfit in no time and is usually always dressed before I am! It’s been fun (and dangerous) being a Mom to a daughter, and now that she’s (GASP) 9 she is very vocal about her preferred style. This summer we went shopping for new jeans (she had a crazy growth spurt and none of her 8 pairs of jeans fit) and she independently went shopping in the girls section and asked for her own fitting room to try everything on! It was great to see, but really hit home that my baby is growing up! Though we have to be careful because as many parents know, not all kids’ clothes are made the same and my kiddo is tough on her clothes so we need pieces that are well made and also fit into her ever evolving style.

I was first introduced to Boden and Mini Boden & Johnnie B by my sister who loves to dress her 5 year old daughter in their pieces. It wasn’t a brand that I was familiar with, but after searching on their site for awhile I knew why my sister and so many others love Boden USA and their amazing kids clothes and accessories. Boden is one of Britain’s best kept secrets, specializing in heritage-inspired style with a colorful, modern twist. They make clothes for the whole family and launched their children’s line Mini Boden & Johnnie B in 1996 and we were lucky enough to add a few Mini Boden & Johnnie B items to review!

As you can see by my daughter’s shining smile she absolutely loves her new pieces from Boden! She has exclaimed multiple times how comfortable all of the clothes feel and that’s huge since she’s on the go with school and various extracurricular activities throughout the week. I’m thrilled at the quality – they aren’t flimsy and you can see and feel that these items will be around to last…as long as she doesn’t have another growth spurt!

Even better – Boden USA is having a gigantic sale with everything 40% off plus free shipping on orders over $50! I’ll be ordering some more leggings and tights for the kiddo this week, just in time for this cooler weather here in Boston. What could be even better? I think a $25 Boden USA giftcard would surely help you pick out some items for your little ones…or yourself! Entering is easy and can be done using the widget below!

Celebrating New Beginnings with #TargetWedding & $25 Target GiftCard Giveaway!

Content and/or other value provided by our partner, Target. All opinions are my own.

Love is in the air these days. The cold and dark of winter is finally fading, flowers are blooming and there is happiness in the air. It’s been exciting to share in the joy of friends who are recently engaged, planning a wedding or welcoming in a new addition to their family. I guess you could say love is in the air for me as well, as I’m beginning a journey with someone I hold near and dear to my heart.

The #TargetWedding Registry is pretty phenomenal and is all about celebrating ‘being yourself together’ and with a variety of items you’re sure to find the perfect gift for your loved ones upcoming nuptials…or you’ll find lots of great finds to add to your own registry!

While a wedding for myself is not on the horizon, I’ve thought a bit about my dream wedding, from what I’d wear, the guest list, and all the fun of celebrating such a special time with the person I’d want to spend the rest of my life laughing with and the Target Wedding registry is full of great items I could see being useful in a marriage.

One of the things I look forward to most when I get married is date night. One on one time with my love to relax and unwind – though with an eight year old date night I’m sure wouldn’t always be possible. But I can improvise and I’ve chosen a couple of products from the Target Wedding Registry that would be perfect for date night indoors.

What’s date night without a little something sweet? With the KitchenAid Ultra Power 4.5 Qt Stand Mixer we’d make my famous and super delicious semi-sweet chocolate chip cookies in a breeze, kicking off our date night in.

While we wouldn’t have a waiter to deliver us chilled wine, we’d select a couple bottles of our favorite wines and enjoy them in the beautiful Threshold White Wine Glasses as we began to unwind and enjoy each other’s company.

When the cookies were done we’d cozy for a fun game of Scrabble (by the fire preferably) where’d I’d second guess every word my partner thinks is legit :-)

Rainy Day Date Night. Yes, I’m looking forward to that!

And because I love Target so much – and love is in the air I’m giving away another Target e-giftcard – this one is for $25 and its super simple to enter!

CuteBeltz: Kids Belts Giveaway! #CuteBeltzGiveaway

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post with CuteBeltz. All opinions as always are my own.

Cute Beltz Holiday Giveaway

 CuteBeltz For Kids: Keeping one “bum” covered at a time! Our promise from us to you!

Brace yourselves…Christmas is just 13 days away! Even though I tried to be proactive this year with buying gifts, there are still a few kids I need to go shopping for. If you’ve got a little one of two you’re still looking for a gift for, or have a stocking you need to plump up, you’ll want to check out CuteBeltz – super cute kids belts!

We’re talking fashionable girls and boys belts with personality that are sure to make a splash this holiday season! They are the perfect accessory to spruce up a holiday outfit, and they make the perfect gift! A few years ago I had the opportunity to review one of their kid’s belts and I was so impressed with the quality of their belts and the bright fun designs. So many belts I’ve purchased for my daughter have frayed and been uncomfortable for her active lifestyle. What’s great about Cute Beltz is that you can buy D-ring belts for your older kids or their easy to use Velcro toddler and infant belts for your little boy or girl – and with so many different options to choose from you’ll have the perfect one for every season! Head over to see what belts are in stock this season!

Here are a few of my favorite girls and boys belts:

Love & Peace Girls Belt

Candy Stripe Girls Belt

Nautical Boys Belt

Roaring Dinosaur Boys Belt

Their Velcro belts are offered for children 6 months to 10 years of age. They are great when potty training because you can get them on and off quickly. Their D-ring belts are offered for children 12 months to 10 years of age and are easy for kids to loosen and fasten. Most importantly these belts are helping keep children’s pants at their waist – where they should be!

What I love is that CuteBeltz is a woman owned business! Kristen is a momprenuer of two beautiful girls who created CuteBeltz back in 2008 because the belts she was buying just didn’t work for her kids and she couldn’t find any belts to fit her daughter. Because she couldn’t find any she made one! Now five years later her business has blossomed and her belts have been featured on NBC’s hit show Parenthood!!

Because it’s the season of giving I’ve teamed up with CuteBeltz and some other great bloggers to offer one of you the opportunity to win any CuteBeltz of your choice!! Enter today – and be sure to enter the other #CuteBeltzHolidayGiveaway from the other bloggers to increase your chances of winning!

Mary Kay Arranque de Pasion Campaign & Giveaway!

I’ve long been a fan of Mary Kay for its vast product line and affordability. I even considered becoming a consultant…but chose the nonprofit route instead! I’m thrilled to share some great news with you! Mary Kat is the official sponsor of the latest Univision.com webnovela, Arranque de Pasión! This partnership means that Mary Kay products will be highlighted when characters are wearing their products! In honor of the sponsorship Mary Kay decided to create some unique “looks” of the novella and created a series of vignette’s featuring celebrity makeup artists Luis Casco and Mariela Bagnato share tips on how to replicate the featured looks at home! This is always a struggle for  me – I see an amazing makeup look, I try to replicate it at home and I end up looking like a clown! Not good!!

One of the looks Mary Kay created was the “Ela” Ready to Win look. Everyone wants a winning look, and for Ela, she believes that you should always look good and be ready to win in life and love. This character look developed by Luis Casco is a “winner.”

I was chosen as one of many bloggers to recreate one of the signature looks using Mary Kay products! In the mail I received the products to help recreate the “Ela” Ready to Win look!
