Aden + Anais

Swaddle giveaway open til April 3rd! Going on right now at Take It From Me!

If you have little ones or know someone who does, I suggest you check this one out. The products from Aden +Anais are adorable and have great reviews.

Here is what is up for grabs: 
"Pack of four 100% cotton muslin swaddling wraps. aden + anais wraps are the ultimate in breathability and softness. The fabric’s light, open weave allows a baby’s body temperature to regulate itself naturally, helping to reduce the risk of overheating. It is gentle on baby’s skin and durable for everyday use. The more you wash them the softer they get. aden + anais wraps are extra large, measuring 47” x 47”, so that new and seasoned moms alike can swaddle babies of all sizes with ease. Traditionally used for swaddling, our wraps can also be used as burp cloths, nursing and stroller covers, portable crib sheets, stroller and car seat liners, tummy time blankets, change table covers, and more."

Ginger Cake

Here is something to satisfy that crafty itch we all sometimes get. Patterns and projects by Gingercake! I have really enjoyed browsing her shop and especially her BLOG. It really got my creative juices flowing and I'm feeling rather inspired. I found a few practical ideas and so many cute patterns that I don't know what to make first! Perhaps my very favorite item.... this stuffed lucky elephant:   

Something about him just screams MAKE ME!!! But I know I can't stop there, because I think these owl purses are a great gift idea for my nieces. I want to use them like a gift bag, and then they can also keep them for a purse! Look at all the adorable color combos:

And something for the "everything-has-its-rightful-place" kind of person. I think these Crayon Art Folios are perfect for keeping those art supplies neatly tucked away until they are suddenly needed. Cute CUTE!

I want to get busy right away! I will let you check out the other projects for yourself at Gingercake! You can also read the review by Dang Gina and enter there to WIN some patterns!

Hapari Swimwear

The season for swimsuits is upon us!  It will soon be time to take the plunge into a pool or lake while the sun roasts your shoulders.  Awww, sounds good right? Here is a great resource for some new swimwear.

I always go for the Tankini sets but you'll find all varieties on their website. The great part is that when you find a print you like they usually have that same print in all styles and sizes. YES!

The giveaway is through Take it From Me and you could win a $96 to spend on their site!

JM Cremp's Adventure Store

I am GIDDY with excitement about the discovery I just made. JM Cremp's Adventure Store for boys! Or if you had a childhood like mine it could definitely be for adventurous little girls as well!

I don't even know where to begin, because there is so much great merchandise available here. From camping and hiking gear - to space and military toys. They even have costumes! Let me just show you a few things I found while browsing:

First of all, this zipline for endless hours of summer entertainment. I think it should come with a "sure to toughen them up" guarantee:) 

I can't think of a little boy who wouldn't want this fire engine red speedster! A sturdy car with all the bells and whistles. Oh the joys of childhood!
Now this next little diddy might seem a bit precarious, but I myself have been on one of these and LOVE them. There is something even more magical about it than a regular swing. A SPRING swing!

I could go on all day. There are SO many projects, activities, lessons, and products designed for kids! I found the perfect gift for my nephew at their site, and I haven't ruled out shopping for my HUSBAND there either! So go check it out and then enter the giveaway at Take It From Me before March 21st.  The prize is $100 gift card.  I know... it's amazing! 

Gia Rose Boutique

Have you noticed how popular diaper cakes are these days? And with shops out there like Gia Rose Boutique it's no wonder! Some people just have a knack for this sort of thing, and I am amazed by what they can create.
Here is the one that has been selected for a Dang Gina Giveaway:
 It's a cute little blue elephant theme and is valued at $45! So if you know anyone who is having a baby in the near future, be sure to enter! Giveaway open until the 17th at midnight at Dang Gina.
I just love the back view. Look at the awesome ribbon lace up! This is one of many incredible creations at Gia Rose Boutique. Go take a look at the other items in her shop - I am sure they are going fast!


Ladies...have you ever heard of a flow-hider? Sounds intriguing, right? Well it is an incredibly smart product available through Mexican Stew. It looks like a small clutch or wallet, but SURPRISE! It's a tampon holder that is designed to hold 4 tampons, a wipe and small pad. So cleverly disguised!
I just think it would be so nice to have one of these inside your purse in case of emergencies. Or perfect for passing it along discretely if you have a friend in need. Look how it unrolls so nice and neat...
 One paisley pattern flow-hider from Mexican Stew is up for grabs right now at Dang Gina! This giveaway is open until the 22nd of March and there aren't too many entries yet... Good Luck!

A Couple's portrait for the bedroom

Something like this for the family room:

Eden Fantasys

It's back a third time! I have previously mentioned this shop, but here it is once more for those of you who missed it! - It's an online resource for lingerie. Since the products can be somewhat 'adult' in nature I opt out of posting pictures on this one - But don't let that scare you away! It is a $25 gift card up for grabs so you  get to pick out your prize!

When it comes to the "Lingerie" word I usually look the other way, but this shop has something for everyone. From comfy panties, to a fancy bra, or some awesome candles! If you are in the market for lingerie this place has a great selection and I was impressed by the prices. Instead of going to Victoria Secret or another public store you can order something new online and not worry about the uncomfortable sales representatives.

So just a heads up that you should go check out the Eden Fantasy shop, and enter the giveaway at Dang Gina! You can put in your entries until March 9th.
