#Win Beautiful Miche Handbag- Review and #Contest


I think that I, like most women, take immense pleasure in handbags. I don’t know what it is about a really great purse that just “does” it for me (and so many others!) but, doesn’t a great bag just thrill you?
Miche Bags are unlike any other. They are a basic bag with interchangeable shells, that you can customize for any outfit. The shoes and the purse really “make” or break the outfit, so a fab handbag is a MUST when you are dressing to impress, heading out to an interview, or just want to look great.

It’s fun and easy to customize your bag, and choose the shells (the part that shows) that you like best. You choose what size bag you want, then pick the shells you like best. And even better? If you get new shoes (WHEN you get new shoes!) you can pick up a few new shells to match! Going to a wedding, and want to match that bridesmaid dress, or cocktail attire? No prob! Switch the shell, easy peasy.

Here is how it works-

Please excuse the mess- I made this video the day before I left for Ohio- Pre-Hurricane, LOL.  I let my husband make the video, and he didn’t even try to keep the mess out, Le Sigh.  You know how packing is. 

You can buy your bags HERE, and you can enter to win one standard bag and shell below. Here is how to enter!

Fun and Adorable New Pajamas for the Family- Review and Contest

Autumn is here, and that means that winter is coming- can you feel it? The weather has begun to change, and it is cooling down 🙂 Soon, we will have to pack away our shorts and tank tops for almost a whole year, and bust out the fleece and flannel! I have to say, it’s been so hot this summer that I am fully ready.

One of the best parts of fall (in my opinion) is that with cooler nights, brings snuggling in bed or on the couch in your PJ’s, under your favorite blanket, with some hot chocolate and maybe a movie. And I just found THE CUTEST pajama store! It’s called CrazyForBargains.com and it is so easy-breezy to shop at. I love, love, love the options, how user-friendly it is- and the prices are oh-so right. Your budget will for sure not be broken here, and that is coming from a teacher! (Hey- I love my job, but my salary? Not so much! LOL)

One more thing that I think you moms of especially boys will love- Crazy for Bargains has a whole lot of options for your little man. (For girls too- but shopping for boys can be a chore, since so many places don’t give you choices.)  So many stores are boring to shop at for boys, they have no choices, and limited sizes. Variety is not going to be a problem here, that has to be my favorite thing about Crazy For Bargains. The hardest part will be choosing what you want! From Thomas to Mario, they have it all when it comes to pajamas for boys.

I dared to ask them to stay still so I could take a photo.  Yep.  Little strikes again, LOL

He didn’t stay still anyway, LOL- Oh well- at least Kamikaze was helpful!  Trying, haha

Look at how cute my kids look in their new pajamas! These fun and inexpensive pajamas are adorable, and Kamikaze had to be yanked out of hers by force because the skirt of the nightdress was “super-spinny” (according to Kamikaze) and she was thinking she was a ballerina, LOL. But at some point, she did have to get dressed! 😛

They have PJ’s for the whole family– come on and take a look 🙂
In addition, one of you lucky ducks will win a $25 gift credit toward anything on the site.

Win a FAB Amy Michelle Bag- gorgeous meets function!

Hey guys- You will have to please excuse this review, because it arrived while I was away on travel, and then my house flooded, so I don’t have the bag anymore.  I only briefly saw this bag, but I am truly and deeply sorry that it didn’t make it, because it was SO PRETTY and so ultra functional, and you know how picky I am with bags! (And mine is busted- so the timing was great!  LOL- such is life, right?)

It is a diaper bag that LOOKS like a regular purse.  AND it has all those amazing pockets that I love inside for organization! 

I can tell you that it is the ultimate in diaper bags, the coolest and best looking one I have seen as well.  I am so sorry I don’t have my own photos for you.  But, here is some product information and pictures for you that the sponsor provided.

The Lotus Diaper Bag Forget diaper bags in pastel colors. Amy Michelle offers runway-fierce totes that would satisfy the most savvy fashionista, and no one but you needs to know about the diapers inside!

Baby’s Section:

  • Changing pad (24″ x 14″) – Remove padding to wash lining

Back to school- with Dinosaur Train clothing!

 Little Man’s First Day of School outfit- you KNOW it had to be Dinosaur Train!  (Pre-K is officially back is session today!)


NEW DINOSAUR TRAIN APPAREL from Kids with Character!

Dinosaur Train’s summer line shirts and pants/shorts sets are great for back to school. Look for NEW Dinosaur Train apparel coming in August and September at Kohls and Kmart.



Get ready for an all-new season of Dinosaur Train this August with “Dinosaur Big City” which premieres on PBS Kids on August 22; and the DVD release of Dinosaur Train: Dinosaur Big City on August 23 (SRP: $14.99).  From the world-renowned Jim Henson Company, Dinosaur Train is seen in over 13 million households every month* and embraces and celebrates preschoolers’ fascination with both dinosaurs and trains. The series encourages scientific thinking and other skills as it teaches viewers about natural science, natural history and paleontology.

 

Doesn’t he look adorable?  
As you know, my Little Man LOVES Dinosaur Train- it is one of his favorite shows, they are some of his favorite toys- and he LOVES the outfit!  He was so excited to wear it today. 

My Little Man just loves his new Dinosaur Train outfit, and he was looking sweet as pie.  The pants do bleed the first time you wash them, so wash them separately the first time.  The t-shirt under the button down shirt is Little Man’s favorite part, and he likes to wear it alone.  I let him wear it twice before today because he was so excited to wear “Buddy”! 
Make sure you head to Khols or KMart to pick up Dinosaur Train clothing for your own little one’s school days- or just for their play days  🙂  
Feel free to follow the Jim Henson Company on Facebook and PBS Kids on Twitter for all the fun news.    Have a great day!

Cleavitz- they have your “girls” COVERED! Review and Contest

Ladies!  I have another good one for you!  If you are like me, you are constantly- CONSTANTLY trying to figure out how to keep your “girls” in, or not have so much of them showing.  Between certain popular styles and trends, and cuts of clothing, and the fact that I have been very….um, blessed?  in the chest area, I am ALWAYS struggling to keep them in, and not shake what my mama gave me, LOL.   No one needs to see ALL that, ha!  Come on now, need I remind you of those bathing suits?  LOL.

OKOK, so!  Pulling on t-shirts and tank tops underneath everything is usually what I do to hide my…ample bosom, but it’s hot, and this can also be bulky, which I hate.  I hate being hot, and I hate looking bulky.  Do you know a woman who is like- hey yeah!  Bring on the bulk!  Seriously.  NO.  But those little covers that they sell in most stores do NOTHING for me!  NOTHING!  And then- do I find something fab.  These are called “Cleavitz“.  Where have you been all my life????   I can wear whatever, and not be embarrassed, or worried about a “clothing malfunction”.  😛

I like my chest.  Sort of.  But I don’t like to look like….well, you know.  I’m a mother!  And a wife, and I am not 18 years old, nor am I at the beach, or a club…at 18 years old, lol.  I am always so limited in what I can wear, or have to go up a few sizes to accommodate the girls- then I look like I am wearing a bag.  Cleavitz are a lifesaver!  I feel so much more confident, and even though yes, it shows less skin- it’s sexier, in my opinion.  I feel better, I look better, and I am more confident knowing that my chest will stay where I want it to.  AWAY!

Cleavitz has so many styles to choose from, there will be some you like, for sure.  I had a very hard time choosing what to try out.  Too many that looked great, easy to wear and match.

Sunhats, perfect for the summer!

It’s summer- so you know what that means!  More time outside, and more time in the sun.  I am the sunblock queen- even in the winter- and I do always wear a hat outside.  I was just sent this Scala Ribbon Sun Hat to review.  It’s cute- the white color is easy breezy to pair with, and they have some other colors that are really fun!  (Don’t you love the teal one?  LOL)  White and black are versatile, though. It’s comfortable, it breathes, and it shades my head, face, and neck.  It also has a UV protection of 50!  I have worn it to the beach, BBQ, and to a 4th of July picnic so far.  You can’t wear a ponytail, not a high one, anyway, with it- so it’s not for gardening, more for hanging out and looking pretty while keeping yourself cool and protected from the sun.

You can get one of your own in several color options here!
Happy browsing!

Miraclesuit- the bathing suit for those of us who need some help ;)

Who loves shopping for swimsuits!  Ok, me neither!  LOL
As you know, I just lost 23 lbs, with more to go- and I am in the market for a new, fun bathing suit.  While I am not yet thrilled with my body, it is a work in progress, and I am going to work what I have!  However, I am not one to turn down a minor miracle when it comes to looking fabulous.  Miraclesuit, of course!  The miracle being that it makes you appear 10 pounds thinner when you put it on.  Hmmm, maybe I should start wearing it to work….hahaha.
What do you think?  Va-voom, right?  It is called Rialto.

Ok, I may not be a covergirl, but whatevs, I think it’s doing it’s job quite well.  I wish it had bigger breast cups, but that is a problem I have with at least 80% of swimsuits.  Never enough coverage for bigger chested gals!  But the Rialto by Miraclesuit does better then some others have, so I give it that.  I love the color, too- we all know every girl needs at least one pair of red shoes, and I think we may all need a red bathing suit, as well…it’s so much fun to wear.
