Swaddle Designs – Baby Shower Event review & giveaway

Getting a good night’s sleep is a number 1 priority for most new parents.  Since brand-new babies can need a lot of help to get to sleep (and stay that way), anything that helps is invaluable!  With our daughter, swaddling was crucial but it was almost impossible to do in the teeny receiving blankets that many people tend to give as gifts.  This time, I’ll be prepared from the first moments thanks to Swaddle Designs! For review, I was sent the Ultimate Receiving Blanket in Kiwi Puppytooth.  Read more […]

Rockin’ Green – Baby Shower Event review & giveaway

There has been a lot of cloth diaper talk on my blog lately (and there’s more to come!) but one thing that usually doesn’t get mentioned is how to take care of them.  You shouldn’t use just any old detergent on cloth diapers because it can lead to build-up (ie the diaper won’t absorb the liquid anymore) or stinkies (a very technical term) but you don’t want to spend a fortune trying out detergents to find one that works!  That’s where  Rockin’ Green comes in. I was sent a bag of Rockin’ Read more […]

Lulie Chic Boutique – Baby Shower Event review & giveaway

Lulie Chic Boutique is a great Etsy store for mom’s of girls, or if there’s a special girl (or big sister!) in your life.  Julie is based out of Ottawa and she creates hair accessories for every occasion!  There are bows in every style and size, in patterns and solid colours, for any outfit you can imagine. Lulie Chic Boutique has recently added headbands to their store and that’s what I reviewed.  I chose the monkey bow headband because 1) it’s adorable and 2) since it has monkey’s on it, Read more […]

Little Threads – Baby Shower Event review & giveaway

Little Threads by Rebecca is an Etsy store that makes a personal weakness of mine – sweet little baby hats!  Since babies should wear hats when it’s cool (or downright cold, as it is right now), they should be as cute as possible, right?  Rebecca has turned her hobby – or perhaps it’s an obsession – with crocheting into a store with loads of cute things that make perfect gifts for new little babies or their older siblings! For review, I chose Rebecca’s most popular item, the Little Monkey Read more […]

Lil Divas Bowtique – Baby Shower Event review & giveaway

Lil Divas Bowtique is an Etsy store with a focus on cute organization for your kids!  Mitten clips, bow and hat holders, belt buddies and more, their motto is “turning clutter into cute” and it shows. For review, I was sent a Sophie leash in the Cutesy Owls print.  While it’s called a “Sophie leash”, even if you don’t have the beloved giraffe (and shockingly, it’s one of the few toys that we didn’t get for our daughter) you can still find plenty of uses for it.  I love the idea behind Read more […]
