Packing In Style with Obersee

When we found out we were going to Disney I had so much to do to prepare. On the top of my list was to get new luggage. I had such a hard time finding child-appropriate luggage that my daughter could tote around on her own. When I realized Obersee had an entire line of kid’s luggage, I felt like I hit the jackpot. This child-sized luggage with integrated cooler measures 16″ tall x 11″ wide x 8.5″ deep which makes it the perfect size for children 3+.  The outside of this bag features two drink pockets, additional outer pocket for easy storage, an insulated snack cooler, a carrying handle, quality wheels, and a sturdy pull bar for easy transport. The inside of this bag features a large compartment with clothing straps and an oversized pocket. The pulling handle and large wheels make this bag super easy for my toddler to pull even when filled with clothes and toys. It is the perfect size for several outfits as well as books and snacks to keep her occupied on the long drive there. My only regret about this, is not splurging for the 3 piece set! The quality is amazing and I know it will last her for quite some time.

Dot Dot Smile by Chelsey Bennett

My daughter Kinsley and I are huge fans of Dot Dot Smile clothing. Not only are the patterns and styles adorable, but the quality is amazing! Chelsey Bennett, a Dot Dot Smile distributor, contacted us recently about showcasing some of her new styles. Unlike many clothing companies, each Dot Dot Smile outfit is available for a limited time, which means once its gone…its gone! I couldn’t wait to jump on the chance to review these two adorable new patterns! My daughter currently wears a 3t in regular clothing, however she fits in a 2t Dot Dot Smile. The dresses are extremely stretchy and can fit her for quite some time. Even when she outgrows the dress, she can put some leggings under it and wear it as a tunic! I was blown away by the inventory Chelsey had! I mean, it was so hard to narrow it down to my top two choices! Kinsley chose an adorable cheetah print, while I choose a cute fall colored flower dress for her. Of course the cheetah print was her personal favorite, but both dresses are super adorable! Thankfully Chelsey stays stocked with the cutest new patterns, because we can’t wait to grow our collection a bit more!

Rock This Boot Season with Laura Ashley USA!

Tis’ finally the season we have all been looking forward to! BOOT SEASON! Well maybe not all of us have been looking forward to it, but I sure have! My daughter Kinsley and I always rack up on boots this time of the year, and we never miss a great sale. While doing our annual boot shopping we stumbled upon Laura Ashley USA! Not only does Laura Ashley cary tons of adorable clothes and accessories, but their boot collection was to die for! We ended up selecting a pair of Olivia Girls Rain Boots and a pair of Chloe Black Buckle Boots, both of which I absolutely couldn’t pass up! 20171005_170404.jpgMy daughter decided that she loved the Chloe Black Buckle Boots much more than the Olivia Girls Rain Boots, so we tried them on the second our mailman run the doorbell! Not only were they exactly as pictured on the website, but they fit like a charm! I am always a bit nervous about ordering shoes online, because the styles can affect the fit and comfort. My daughter has been walking around the house with these all day, and has not complained about them once! The rain boots also fit like a charm, however Kinsley is obsessed with the Chloe Black boots and wouldn’t let me take a photo! Laura Ashley USA offers more than just shoes. They also offer styles for men, women, and home decor. I can’t believe it took us this long to find this little jackpot!

Start your boot collection today! Head on over to Laura Ashley USA to find your perfect style!PicMonkey Collage

Townleygirl Introduces New Nightmare Before Christmas Line

“Boys and girls of every age. Wouldn’t you like to see something strange? Come with us and you will see. This, our town of Halloween”

This Halloween, Townleygirl is introducing their brand new Nightmare Before Christmas line! I must admit that this is one of my favorite themes that Townleygirl has released, since The Nightmare Before Christmas happens to be one of my favorite movies! This new line features adorable new lip gloss sets, nail polish sets, dress up sets, and so much more! We received a set of Mood Changing Lip Balm Set with Bonus Bag, a 4 Pack Lip Gloss with Coffin Carrying Case, and a 3 pack of lip balm! These sets were just “to die for“! The mood changing lip balm set has an assortment of 3 mood-changing twist-up lip balms in flavors like yellow bubble gum, warm red cherry and purple grape! All three balms are packed in a Jack Skeleton packaging. The 4 pack lip gloss set was our personal favorite. This set came with 4 glittery lip glosses and 1 coffin themed tin case. The flavors include rose raspberry, green watermelon, purple grape and magenta bubble gum! The 3 pack of lip balm doesn’t come with a case, however each balm is decorated with famous Nightmare Before Christmas characters like Jack and Sally. My daughter and I both love these spooky little sets (yes, I stole a lip balm)! These are perfect for the NBC fans in your home!20171010_174654.jpg

Custom Halloween Outfit from Simply ICB

Halloween is easily my favorite holiday! Spooky movies on tv, pumpkins everywhere, and super adorable costumes! Every year since my daughter has been born, we go all out for Halloween. A super cute costume for trick-or-treating and several Halloween-themed outfits for the entire month of October! This custom Halloween outfit from Simply ICB is perfect for our halloween festivities! As usual, the dress itself is fabulous quality and fit like a charm. No shrinkage after being washed. The saying “Most likely to wear the hat” is shown in adorable glitter vinyl with a witch’s hat off to the side. The colors and patterns go perfectly! With this particular outfit, Simply ICB included a matching hair bow and a pair of chevron leggings. The two accessories match the dress perfectly and are an adorable touch! I love that my daughter can wear this dress alone, or with the leggings to dress it up a bit. I can’t wait for her to wear it to her school Halloween carnival! My only disappointment with this outfit, is that Simply ICB didn’t make me one in an adult size! Seriously the cutest Halloween outfit in my daughter’s closet!

DIY Bath Time Fun from Kiss Naturals

My daughter Kinsley and I love doing DIY projects and doing them together makes for great bonding activities. That is why I couldn’t pass up these adorable DIY bath time sets from Kiss Naturals! We received a Bath Fizzie set, a Glycerine Soap set, and a Bubble Bath set. My daughter decided to whip out the bubble bath set first. The bubble bath set included everything we needed to create four custom bottles of bubble bath. This included four empty bottles, bubble gel, pink coloring, two scent oils, a measuring cup, and a small mixing spoon. Using the premixed bubble gel, the two fragrance options (watermelon and bubble gum), and the pink color we were able to mix and match our very own custom options! Not only was this kit a great bonding activity, but my daughter felt so accomplished after we were finished! She could hardly wait to use her creations in the tub the next night! I can’t wait to complete the other two sets soon! The bath fizzie set comes with everything Kinsley needs to make 8 of her very own bath bombs, and the glycerine soap kit comes with enough material to make 16 individual soaps! Kiss Naturals also offers other award-winning kits such as lip balms and face paint, however I decided to keep everything bath related this time around. I can’t wait to see what kind of creations we come up with next!

Kudo Banz: Reinforce Good Behavior

My daughter just turned three, so I hoped the terrible twos were behind us. That is when I was told of the dreaded “Threenager” years. A three year old who has the attitude of a teenager! Temper tantrums in the store, selective hearing, and so much more. You name it, we’ve experienced it. That is why I was more than willing to test out the new Kudo Banz! Kudo Banz are small bracelet-like bands that act as a sticker chart on-the-go! No matter where you are, you can immediately reinforce good behavior by sticking a Kudo charm onto your child’s Kudo band! I immediately requested a starter pack because I was willing to try anything to correct this bad behavior. In the starter pack I received a hardcover storybook, two bands, six Kudo charms, a carrying pouch, a FREE app download. This is everything I need for 1-2 children.

IMG_7285.JPG

The Kudo Banz system was extremely easy for the kids and I to understand. Do a good deed or do something nice, and receive a Kudo charm. Receive Kudo charms and earn prizes and rewards. Simple. To start, I had to download the Kudo app and set everything up. In the parent section I could add children and select prizes for the prize wheel. I decided to add “Bake Cookies”, “Paint Your Nails”, “Go For A Bike Ride”, “Family Movie Night” and “Get Ice Cream” as prizes since those are some of my daughter’s favorite things to do! Once I explained the app to my daughter, she was more than happy to start earning her charms. Once Kinsley has earned three charms, all I have to do is scan her charm and she can spin the rewards wheel! Since the app and bracelet can go with us anywhere, the prize wheel allows for immediate reinforcement! To make sure Kinsley doesn’t lose interest in her Kudo Band, she will move up a level in the  kids move up a level in the Kudo World every time she spins the reward wheel! Kudo Bandz are such an easy way to reinforce good behavior while at home or on-the-go! Unlike similar approaches such as sticker charts,  Kudo Banz can go anywhere we go! I can’t wait to see the long-term effects of this adorable little product!

Rock The Locks: Natural Hair Care

I can not express how excited I was to test out a new haircare brand from my daughter: Rock The Locks! From the makers of Piggy Paint, Rock The Locks is a kid-friendly hair product line that is trusted by parents around the world! All Rock The Locks products are infused with essential oils and are free from all artificial fragrances, alcohol, sulfates, parabens, and phthalates! The fun colors and silly names are sure to be a hit with children, while the products themselves are sure to be a hit with parents!

20170515_165214.jpg

Not So Knotty– Not So Knotty is a conditioning detangler that is tough on tangles, but soft on hair! I personally used this detangler on both wet AND dry hair, with equally amazing results. All I had to do was spray my daughter’s hair from top to bottom, and comb through. I was surprised at how easily Not So Knotty was to distribute. It comes out of the bottle in a large spray, so I only needed to use two or three pumps per use! This product is infused with essential oils and superfruit complex which adds body, moisture, and shine! It is free of parabens and phthalates as well as alcohol. My daughter loved the fruity smell, and I loved how easy it was to comb through my daughter’s matted ends!

Curls Wanna Have Fun– Curls Wanna Have Fun is a curl enhancer that defines curls without weighing them down. Although this can be used on both wet and dry hair, I personally tested it out on my daughter’s towel dried hair. I sprayed it directly into her hair, then combed through.  After about an hour, I checked her hair again and LOVED the results. My daughter’s hair isn’t naturally curly, but thanks to Curls Wanna Have Fun, she had some adorable beach-like waves. I am sure this would work much better on girls with ringlets, however we loved our results. I also loved that it didn’t leave that “crunchy” feeling like my adult curl enhancer does! The orange creamsicle scent was heavenly, and my daughter asked if it came in a perfume bottle!

Get Stylin’ & Profilin’– Get Stylin’ & Profilin’ is a flex style gel that gives hair more control and hold. I originally got this for my nephew who likes to spike his hair up, however it came in very handy for dance class. I used it to slick back my daughter’s hair into her ballerina bun, and it held throughout the entire hour long dance class! All I had to do was apply a small amount of the gel to the palm of my hand, rub my hands together, then work the gel into my daughter’s hair to get the desired style. I let it air dry and we were ready to go. My daughter loved the green apple scent, and surprisingly I was able to smell it up until I went to rinse it out!

Don’t Messy With Me– Don’t Messy With Me is a texture paste for extreme hold. I got this product for my nephew as well, and it was a huge hit! Like the Get Stylin’ & Profilin”, all I had to do was apply a small amount of the gel to the palm of my hand, rub my hands together, then work the gel into his hair. I dried fairly quickly, so I was able to style his fohawk exactly how he wanted it without fear of it going flat. There was no crunchy feeling, and it didn’t leave any oily residue! To my surprise, this paste lasted much longer than the salon brand product I previously purchased him.

So Fresh & So Clean– So Fresh & So Clean is a two in one shampoo/conditioner that gently cleans and conditions the hair. This has to be one of my favorite Rock The Locks products! My daughter has fairly thick hair, so conditioner is a must! I was a bit skeptical about using a two in one, simply because her hair always looks dull and lifeless after use. Much to my surprise, So Fresh & So Clean did a great job of leaving my daughter’s hair super shiny and healthy looking. All I needed was a dime sized amount, and it completely covered my daughter’s head.  I was surprised at the amount of suds it created since it is an all natural product! Like all of the Rock The Locks products, the smell was amazing and lasted all day!

Lock It & Rock It– Lock it & Rock it is a hairspray that provides great hold and shine. I was super excited to find out that this product is alcohol free and water-based, which means it is perfect for little heads! I haven’t used this on my daughter’s wet hair, however I have used it to keep her dry hair in place. When I put her hair in pigtails or a pony tail, she always has these annoying little “flyaways” that get in her face. All I have to do is spray a bit of this on it, style, and she is ready to go! It stays for quite some time, however I do use it for little touchups throughout the day!

Rock The Locks can also be found on Facebook and Twitter.
