CR Boutique (giveaway)

CR Boutique is a proudly Canadian (based in Edmonton AB) online store.  Caylee started out as an Ebay store but the demand was so high that she was able to branch out into her own domain.  With a wide variety of products for women, kids and the home this is a store you should keep in mind for - gulp - Christmas shopping. For review, Caylee was nice enough to send Ashlyn her very own suitcase!  We do a lot of travelling to visit our far-flung family and friends, and Ashlyn is getting old Read more [...]

Wholesale Halloween Costumes

Back to School with Hello Kitty

Back to school time means finding ways to keep the kids moving in the morning!  Sparkle Bee from Marino Andriani has lots of items that make the morning fun. Even though Ashlyn isn't in school yet, she still needs some motivation to get moving on the mornings that we have a class or playdate.  She has a hard time sitting still to get her "pony hair" (that's pigtails to the rest of us) done so we were happy to try out the Hello Kitty Lighted Make-Up Mirror. It is recommended for ages 12+ Read more [...]
