Chicco Echo Stroller Review and Giveaway

Chicco Echo Stroller Review and Giveaway

When I was pregnant – back when my son was in-utero and I basically had no idea what he would actually need  - I tried to put a lot of thought into what I’d want in a stroller when he came. Having never had a child before, it’s not surprising that I put emphasis on [...]

Chicco Nextfit Review

Chicco Nextfit Review

When my mother in law asked for my opinion on easy-to-install car seats that will work for both my daughter as well as my nephew, the Chicco Nextfit was on my short list of suggestions. The Nextfit is truly an amazing seat. In fact, it’s wonderful enough that we want to get a second for [...]

Younique’s 3D Fiber Lashes Review & Giveaway

Younique’s 3D Fiber Lashes Review & Giveaway

I have a love/hate relationship with mascara and have since I was old enough to borrow/steal my mom’s. My eyelashes are decently long, but they stick straight out and they are pretty fair, especially at the roots. So if I don’t curl them AND get mascara all the way to the roots, it doesn’t even [...]

Just Pretend Kids Review and a Giveaway!

Just Pretend Kids Review and a Giveaway!

What happened to imagination? When I was a little girl, I remember spending hours playing with Barbie dolls and playing dress up. Sometimes I feel like our society is pushing our little ones to watch television and play video games and forget about how much brain power and imagination can be cultivated by a single [...]

Maxi Cosi Pria 70 Review

Maxi Cosi Pria 70 Review

In January we transitioned Elizabeth (13-months-old at the time) from her infant car seat to a convertible seat. Although she was (and still is) able to fit in to her Britax Chaperone seat per Britax’s height and weight requirements, she was very ready to be sitting more upright in a ‘big girl seat’. My husband [...]

Exederm Eczema Cream Review and Giveaway!

Exederm Eczema Cream Review and Giveaway!

My daughter is two and suffers from mild eczema. It is especially bad in winter with the very dry and cold air – this winter has been brutal for that, which means her breakouts have been worse than normal. When the opportunity came up to try out a new eczema cream, I jumped all over [...]

Comfy Joey Ring Sling Review and Giveaway!

Comfy Joey Ring Sling Review and Giveaway!

I am a huge advocate of babywearing. When my kids were little, I wore both of them just about every single day. Now, my daughter is two-and-a-half and my son is one. I still wear them often, especially when we’re out and about. Hands down, my favorite carrier is a ring sling. My new favorite [...]

I had the pleasure of attending MommyCon Los Angeles in October of 2013. I was lucky enough to snag a ticket before they sold out. So what is MommyCon? “MommyCon is a boutique style convention dedicated to bringing modern parents and mothers-to-be together. (The) focus is on natural and organic parenting methods and timeless tidbits [...]
