Handmade boppy cover review & giveaway! Ends 12-11

This great giveaway is thanks to

This adorable shop offeres nursing covers, lovies, blankets,
burp cloths and of course the item I'm reviewing: the Boppy
cover! I looked into quite a few different shops for Boppy covers,
but was most impressed by Lu Lu Bees! The patterns were so
much more vibrant and cheerful and not just a solid minky material.
I also loved that they are double sided, with the non patterened
side being a beautiful, soft, solid color. I decided the pink alphabet
print was my favorite! The shipping was super fast and the
packaging was adorable! I immediatly opened it up and put it
on my Boppy! My husband noticed her sweet handmade tag and
mentioned how cute it was. It fit snuggly and perfectly! No gapping,
no bulky seams, and it's just smoothe and beautiful! I can't wait
to lay my sweet newborn on it for our first few nursings. I'm so
thankful to this boutique for providing me with such a beautiful item
to review and especially to keep and be an important part of our
family memories. I cannot express how much handmade items mean
to me. Just take a look at the precious cover I was so generously sent!

Such beautiful colors.
They are bright and serene at the same time.

There are also really awesome boy
colors and patterns!

I love these so much!

You can purchase a beautiful Boppy cover from Lu Lu Bees
for only $20. You can buy these in a store, but just know
everyone else will have the exact same patterns and prints
you do. If you get a custom, your baby will have a very unique
and precious cover. The price of these are fantastic!

One winner will recieve an adorable Boppy cover of their
choice from Lu Lu Bees! Good luck & please tell your friends!

Newborn shoes and matching headband review and giveaway! *CLOSED*

This wonderful giveaway is brought to you by

I stumbled upon these precious baby shoes and started drooling!
with the rocking color combos and how soft and comfortable they
looked, I knew I had to contact the shop! There were so many designs
to choose from, but of course I chose the pink and grey! Which, by the
way, is one of the best sellers! It also came with a little matching felt
headband that goes with the flower embellishment on the shoes perfectly.
I received these and was immediately in awe that some ladies can actually
sew like this! Made me kinda jealous, actually! They are so sturdy and
well-made! Not to mention, super soft and flexible for teeny, tiny feet!
These would make an adorable, sentimental baby shower gift, even if you
aren't expecting or have a baby. She even makes these ridiculously cute
boy loafers! I'm seriously so in love with the pair that I got! Take a look!

OH how I love pink and grey...
and the matching headband is just perfect!

Here is a few examples of the awesome boy shoes!

TOO cute! These would look so handsome
on any little guy!

These shoes are priced between $17-$20 depending
on the pattern and if they come with a headband or not.
The boy loafers are priced at $17. A great price for an
honestly great product!

Perfect for any little butterfly! This is a great item for any
photographer to have in their prop collection, or just a mommy
that wants a special dress up piece for her daughter. These wings

simple and plain. I received the "little mermaid" set for Anniston's
photography session that we will be having in our home. The colors
are fantastic! They are so Bright & cheery! The cool thing about them
is the fact that they have strands that can be tucked during pictures,
or tied around the child's shoulder when they get older to wear. These
are so sweet and I cannot wait to see them on my little bundle! This
is the set we got! Pretty cute, huh? I love the big flower detail!

Custom rug review & giveaway! Ends 11-30

This giveaway is thanks to

This is by far the most personal item I have received for our new
baby girl. Our colors are pink & grey, and slowly becoming more
popular, but it's still very hard to find decor for those color combinations.
Lynsey, is the creator of these amazing upcycled rugs. I love the fact
that she reuses materials and creates such a gorgeous work of art. This
is not something you can find in just any home decor store. You can tell
how much time and love is put into what she makes. I was amazed
at the product I was sent. Lynsey asked that I send her photographs
with examples of Anniston's bedding and the colors. She got them perfect.
I love the shaggy look to them, and I cannot tell you how amazing it feels
on my pregnant, bare feet. The materials are so incredibly soft and
I know this will end up being one of our newborn photography props.
She was so easy and pleasant to work with, which is great because I
really need to purchase one for our living room, and I know she is super
reliable! She can create a custom rug to go with ANY one's taste!
I was truly impressed with the quality and durability of this beautiful,
handmade piece. I am proud of it & show it off whenever anyone comes
over! It is the focal point of Anniston's area in our room and it fits
so perfectly! Just take a look at a few photos of it!

It is so perfect & totally fits my shabby chic style!

These gorgeous rugs range from $30-$140 [Don't let the
price tag scare you, I can PROMISE they are worth every
single penny!] The one I recieved is valued at $130 and is
a custom. It can be made in ANY color combo. It is 3 feet
around and perfect for any room in your home! GUESS WHAT?
We also have a coupon code you can enter in at checkout
to get %20 off your purchase! What a great deal! Just enter
"robinsnestloveslash" for your discount! This is valid for
Robin's Nest followers ONLY please.

Lynsey is graciously offering a 1.5 foot custom rug for ONE
lucky winner! You can choose up to 3 colors. Please tell your
friends to stop by and enter as well! Go to her shop and look around!

$20 to Blue Couture Design! Review & giveaway! *CLOSED*

This wonderful giveaway is thanks to

This adorable shop has a little bit of this and a little bit of that!
 Something for everyone! From little man ties [I am totally drooling
over them]! to wall decals! Seriously cute stuff! I contacted Kim,
the owner and she was gracious enough to send me a monogrammed
wall decal for Faith! It is TOP quality and reminds me of a large company
that I have used before. She includes instructions and they are
so super simple! Just peel, scratch and peel again! It turned
out so perfect, with clean lines and looks so great on her wall!
super simple, super adorable. It was up on her wall and finished
in 10 minutes! Keep in mind this decal was quite large, so
I naturally expected it to take much longer! It's beautiful!
I love how it almost looks a tad bit industrial, but then has the
curly font which cutesies it up again.

^ Told ya! Kim is offering up $20 to her shop to ONE winner
which can buy quite a few adorable items!

Punk ruffle bloomers review & giveaway! *CLOSED*

This giveaway is thanks to

Ruffle butt bloomers! Oh my goodness! We all know how adorable
they are, especially on tiny, crawling little girls. I found this shop on
Etsy, and was amazed at how different these are from the sweet, baby
pinks and purples which are so pastel. These make a statement! The
colors are so vibrant and funky, I fell in love! There is also a great mix
of prints in each pair. Now, I love cloth diapered baby booties, but
even if you don't cloth, these are fantastic. They give that fluff-butt
look, which is irresistible! I contacted the owner and received an
amazing pair in pink and grey and zebra! She makes them in all
sizes, but I got Anniston's in newbie for her newborn photography
session. They are absolutely adorable and TINY! The elastic around
the waist and legs is so durable and seems really soft and comfortable.
The only thing I could say "bad" about them is the material thatthe ruffles
are made of may need ironing after a washing. [I just HATE ironing].
They would be so stinking cute with a pair of baby leg warmers!

Here is the precious ruffle diaper cover I got!

They are so full and frilly!
She has so many different styles and patterns to
choose from, you'll just have to go take a look!
I cannot wait to see what these look like on our
new little one!

Buy it!
These adorable bloomers are sold HERE for $16
to $20. And you are sure to find a pair you love!

Win it!
One lucky winner will get a pair of their
choice from the shop! Good luck & tell your
friends to play too!

Keep Me Safe Cuff review & giveaway! *CLOSED*

is proudly sponsoring this giveaway!

Keeping your children safe is the #1 responsibility of being a
parent. Most of us take this really seriously, but let's be honest
by saying it is impossible to have an eye on your child every
moment of every day. I have been very blessed to be able to
stay at home with my children. I know some mothers cannot
and that's why I think inventions like these are amazing! Your
child can carry around their important info on them at all times
and stylishly, at that! The Owl and The Firefly creates safety cuffs
that have an adorable pattern in one side, and information on the
other [so not just anyone can see it]. You can provide such details
as your child's birth date, their emergency contacts, allergies, and
any medications they are on. As a recovering helicopter mom,
I'm in love with these! These cuffs are designed to fit children
2 to 10 years of age [you could also request a custom for smaller
or larger sizes]. Did I mention how CUTE they are, too?

Here are the "girl" styles:

and here are the "boy" styles:

This is what the inside looks like.
[You are provided with a fine point
Sharpie to write with].

I received one for Faith AND for Clayton.
Faith loves anything she can wear, so I knew she
would love it! But Clayton, on the other hand, not
so much a go-with-the-flow kinda guy. To my
amazement he LOVED it and wore it all day long
with no whining or trying to pull it off! [They are very soft!]
 I really love the idea of these cuffs and hope more parents start
using these, maybe children can be kept safer.
These cuffs sell for $9.95 [not including shipping]

ONE lucky winner will receive this "girl" printed
cuff & Sharpie marker! Good luck!

3 graphic onesies review & giveaway! *CLOSED*

is to thank for this AWESOME giveaway!

Super unique sayings. Adorable colors. Great quality.
The onesies from The Itty Bitty Boutique are beyond cute!
We have bought a few graphic onesies before and were...
less than impressed. But these are so much more different!
First of all, the owner, Shanda uses Carter's onesies, which
are known for their durability. The screen-printed transferred
image or wording is not thick and stiff like store bought
graphic tees. To be blunt, some of these sayings are just
downright hilarious and some even crude. All equally
adorable! The tees come with a fabric care sheet to
ensure that colors don't bleed and that you keep your
garment looking brand new! I received THIS hilarious
onesie which will go GREAT with a pair of leg warmers
and a gigantic pink bow!

I cannot tell you how adorable these are! You'll have to go
look for yourself, but here are a couple examples!

This giveaway is AMAZING!
ONE winner is getting THREE, I repeat
THREE onesies of their choice! How cool
is that!?

Please be sure to stop by her shop & look
around. You'll be glad you did :]

Custom knitted diaper cover review & giveaway! Ends 11-16

This amazing giveaway is brought to you thanks to

Addiesma Designs creates beautifully hand-knitted items
that I'm posting just in time for this nippy fall weather!
I loved her diaper covers which just happen to have my
favorite detail on them: ROSETTES! Sarah is the designer
and supports her local yarn shop & only uses natural fibers
and materials. The diaper cover I received is grey and has
beautiful pink roses on the bottom [how cute!]. The bottom
closure on both hips is an ornate, vintage looking pewter.
Beyond gorgeous! The yarn is stretchy enough that you can
extend the wear a little past the age range your purchase it in!
The rosettes are very securely knitted onto the bottom
so I do not believe they would come off easily. Sarah also
sells patterns for those of you talented enough to know how
to knit or crochet! She makes fingerless gloves, headbands/
ear warmers, ear flap hats [kids and adults!], and adorable
hooded vests for youngsters as well as us old folks! ;)

Here is the gorgeous hand knitted diaper cover I received!

I honestly love how unique her shop is, and the array of
different products Sarah sells.
One lucky winner gets to create their own CUSTOM
diaper cover! Good luck :D

Custom wallet review & giveaway! Ends 11-16

This giveaway is sponsored by

Now, something for MOMMY! Every momma needs a
nice wallet that she can just throw money into at checkout,
THESE are perfect! OC Styles makes card holders, wallets,
clutches, journals and organizers and SO much more!
Plus, all in fantastic patterns and styles to match your own
personality. From funky to classy, there is something for every
woman. Michelle makes beautiful bridal clutches, as well as
bridesmaids handbags. These are also great for prom, and
they are offered up at a great, affordable price! These are
so different from the wallets and such that you can buy
at your local department store. For one, they are handmade
and you just can't beat the quality of anything handmade.
Secondly, you aren't going to spend $20 on a wallet. [WHO
has money for that??] I really fell in love with these and
I received this one and have been using it since!

Isn't it beautiful??

Here is an example of her journals!

And bridal/prom clutches!

She even makes travel manicure sets!

Holiday jingle bell rosette bow review & giveaway! Ends 11-16

This awesome giveaway is thanks to

This Etsy shop creates unique bows. These are unlike any others
that I have run across. With embellishments such as bells, bling
and vintage buttons, these stand apart from other rosette bows,
[which I am obsessed with!] I immediately fell head over heels for
her Holiday bow, which showcases an adorable jingle bell, a precious
snowflake, and of course, a gorgeous silver rosette. There is also
a little sprig of tulle that makes the bow POP and adds even more
dimension. She has a huge variety of other styles and colors
and you are sure to find just the right bow for your little princess!
You can also request a custom design, if you need something different.
This is the bow I got for our sweet pea, and the one the winner
will receive [the winners bow is on a clippie, so that you can
either clip it to a headband to fit your babe, or it can be used on
a toddler, or older girl.] This thing is seriously adorable!

ONE lucky winner will get this precious bow!
Have fun & good luck!

Wild animal print blanket review & giveaway! *CLOSED*

This giveaway is sponsored by

I received an amazingly cute blanket from Cozy Everly After for
our new sweet pea, coming in just a few short weeks. The selection
in her shop is fantastic and it was hard to choose what I wanted to
review! Anything pink and/or animal print is my thing, so I got an
adorable zebra and minky blanket. These are perfect for cuddles,
breastfeeding, tummy time, or use as a lovey! The swirly, minky
side reminds me of roses, it's gorgeous! These double-sided blankets
range in price from $12-$22, so you can find the perfect blanket

wild side with a funky animal print combonation, or you can

Bumpaloo cloth wipes review & giveaway! *CLOSED*

This giveaway is thanks to
We are cloth diapering our newest addition [still baking],
after a wonderful experience with it with our other two
children. Cloth wipes are a must for us. Why cloth diaper
if you are going to use disposable wipes? We had a great
assortment of wipes for our son, but they started falling apart
and had to be thrown away. I found these on Etsy and honestly
just liked the prints! But, once I felt the thickness and quality,
I realized there's much more to love about them! They are
cut and sewn the fit the whole hand, so, no mess! Disspsables
cannot complete with that! They are so thick and I know they
will hold up to years of use! Here is the adorable set I recieved:

Go to BUMPALOO BABY to see her
other adorable items!

And here is the set up for grabs! Who doesn't love
pirate monkeys? Too cute! ONE winner will get these.

Leg warmers review & giveaway! *CLOSED*

This giveaway is brought to you by

We all love leg warmers, right? If you don't, it's probably
because you've never tried them! There are so many great
uses for them, especially on young babies/toddlers. They protect
sensitive knees during the crawling age. They make diaper
changes easier . . . no pants! Potty training is less of a fuss.
They can be used for either gender and come in adorable prints
and patterns! PLUS if your baby is a fluff butt [in cloth diapers],
they look EXTRA cute in leg warmers! Posh Pipsqueak offers
such a different twist on leg warmers. I was into a large brand
before I found these! There are so many different ones to
choose from. The selection is seriously huge! With so many
different styles it can be hard to decide which to buy [that's the
only bad thing I could say about them]! They ship out fast, too!
Here are a few different ones I LOVE :

Can you say A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E ? ? ?

These are the ones we got for Clayton [which he is
actually sleeping in right now!] How cute are these?!

ONE lucky winner will get their choice of Posh Legs!
Please go look at all the store has to offer HERE!!!
