Hapari Swimwear {Giveaway}

Hapari Swimwear {Giveaway}

Ahhh, swimsuit season.  The phrase that can strike fear into exhausted mothers everywhere (especially me) who wish they hit the gym a few more times than they actually did.  But don’t get me wrong, we’re going to hit up the beach nearly every day this summer if I can help it, so I plan on feeling completely comfortable in what I’m wearing, lest I spend the summer in something too small/revealing/uncomfortable.  Ladies, I have found a dream suit, and I have Hapari to thank.

First, however, have you seen their line up this season??  CUTE, CUTE, CUTE!!

palm-desert-collection-image

These are modest, attractive, stylish, colorful, and affordable.  Can’t you see yourself in one of these?  This Palm Desert collection is full of such fun colors and prints!

 dress

Now being a big-chested girl with a lot of post-baby tummy fluff to keep under control, I was really intrigued by these swim dresses.  I figured the long length would keep the fabric from creeping up my waist like tankinis do, and the side ruching would be extremely forgiving.  True on both accounts.  This is a VERY friendly and flattering cut, in my opinion, especially for curvy women.

IMG_0196

I ordered the Black Seaside Tankini and Swimdress ($59) and the Red Tummy Tuk Swim Shorts ($35), again, opting for comfort and containment :)

Now pardon my camera phone pictures.  I wasn’t about to take the DSLR to the public pool.  Would you?  My opinion of both these pieces is only complimentary.  The 80% nylon/20% spandex blend is both comfortable and thick enough to feel substantial.  You can even machine wash this if you wanted.  Btw, this top is also available in Plus Size.  The shorts are fantastic.  They are exactly what I was hoping for in terms of something high-waisted that would hold in my guts.  Perhaps an inch shorter on the inseam would make them a little less “motherly” and more trendy, but I couldn’y care less.  They are comfortable, supportive, and bright with an excellent fit.

pool5

Notice that I wore an extra black bikini top underneath my suit for a little added support, so the straps look much thicker than what is actually attached to the suit.  By the way, these straps are removable and interchangeable so that you can wear this as a halter, criss-cross or tank.  You could also let out the drawstring and wear this as a longer bandeau dress for, you know, when you get back on your cruise boat and want to hit up the buffet after your swim on the beach.  And now…

Mika Yoga Wear {Giveaway}

Mika Yoga Wear {Giveaway}

Welcome to the Spring Sweeping Giveaway Hop, hosted by the Blogging Mamas Network!  Take the next two weeks to sweep along the fabulous giveaways that a group of bloggers have come together to offer you!  At the bottom of this post, be sure to hop around to all the giveaways in the linky below, and just maybe the Grand Prize of a Shark® Lift Away Vacuum, from Brylane Home, will get someone in the Spring Cleaning mood!  You can enter the Grand Prize here.

So ladies!  Don’t cute workout clothes fuel the fire to hit the gym?!  I can’t believe how much more excited I am about sweatin’ it out on the elliptical when I’m wearing something slick and far from frumpy, which would accurately describe the huge majority of my current gym clothes collection.mika_sponser_uspdfReady to see some of the greatest yoga wear I’ve come across in a long time?  Hello, Mika Yoga Wear.

Untitled-2Gorgeous colors, beautiful styles, unique features, and premium fabrics.  If you’re a yoga-nut or into pole-fitness, hit this place up!  Though Mika was some superbly unique tops that flatter and support, I want to show off a really excellent pair of pants, capris, and shorts.

IMG_0075I was sent the Sofia Short ($44), Aerial Capri ($52), and Kaya Legging ($54).  Each of them are winners, and worth every penny.

red4

Let’s start with these leggings.  I generally don’t like to feel squeezed inside my leggings, so I got a size L/XL, and they feel great.  Still form-fitting, but plenty long and not biting into the chub around my waist.  The support is great and the fabric is smooth and moisture-wicking.  These have four-way stretch and a 28 1/2″ inseam.  If you’re a shorty like me, you can see how comfortably these can wrap around your heels.  What’s also great about these leggings is that you could wear these outside the gym with a pair of boots like regular leggings.  They aren’t shiny and they don’t scream “workout gear”, so they’re only more versatile than you thought.

red5

Next up are these beautiful aerial capris.  This blackberry/lemon combination is so pretty!  I chose size M/L, and I kind of wish I went up a size again, because the only thing on my wish list regarding these capris is that the waistband was a little higher/wider, but this is coming from the girl with miles of extra sagging stomach skin and no abdominals to keep them in there :).  They fall at a great place below the knee, and as with all Mika Yoga Wear items, there are flat seams that don’t rub or irritate you while you’re moving around every direction.

purple

And now my FAVORITE shorts of all time!  I really click with these Sofia Shorts.  First of all, the colors (Peacock/Goddess) are beautiful, but the cut is really what I love.  The way the hem dips really accentuates any leg muscles, or making even stick legs look amazing.  I’d love to wear these biking or boating.  Ooo, these would be great for white water rafting so the tops of your thighs don’t get sunburned!

blue7

The double-lined 4 1/2″ waistband provides excellent midsection support.  Love my stretch marks?

blue6You can get these in black or there are a few more pairs of these in the Peacock/Goddess color for $30.80.

blue9I’m so happy with these.  I’ve been wearing nothing but my Mika wear for weeks now, and they hold up great through multiple washes.  Check out their store and follow them below:

Spring Foot Covers from Kushyfoot {Giveaway}

Spring Foot Covers from Kushyfoot {Giveaway}

By chance, did you give or get socks last Christmas?  I swear, it was like the hot item of the holidays for adults.  All the men in my life are into these funky designs and unexpected colors for their socks.  I think it stems from them generally having a limited number of ways to accessorize.  Regardless, its been fun to see socks become high on the ‘want’ list, because I likewise think they’re a fun thing to get in to.  Especially the new line of spring socks from Kushyfoot!

Kushyfoot-LogoJust look at this spoil!  This is the Kushyfoot Spring 2014 collection which highlights more than 20 rockin’ styles and colors, and they sent me a sample to review.  The great part about this collection is that the whole footwear spectrum is addressed.  Whether your shoes are high, low, peep toe, sporty or dressy, you’ve got something to keep your feet covered.

IMG_0414Let’s start on the far left with the Ultra Low Cut foot covers, sold as a two-pack.   Note how very low cut these actually are in person.  There is nothing more gross to me than seeing ugly foot covers spill out over top otherwise beautiful heels.  Sure, you can see a pink outline in my Madden Girls, but I totally don’t mind.

pinkThese are totally comfortable, and these polka dots are darling.  That gray dot with the scallop trim around the edges?!  Goodness, do your feet a favor and avoid settling for those tan, generic covers that look sanitary disposables in shoe stores and get these extremely adorable ones.  Notice the dome-shaped padding sewn in to every pair.  Hence the ‘cushy’ part of ‘kushyfoot’.

IMG_0421
Now, I know the elastic looks biting, but it is very stretchy and it doesn’t lie along any pressure points.  Still, I think these are just right for my size 6.5 feet, and that size 8 girls might find these a little too small.  Good thing Kushyfoot now carries larger sizes.  More on that below.  Next in the line-up are the Extreme Low Cut foot covers, also sold as a two-pack.
IMG_0432
Extreme low cut?  Its true.  These are about the lowest cut you can get and still stay on your feet.  The packaging says, “Sides so low, they never show”, and they are totally justified in claiming that.  They totally disappear.  However, with lace this pretty, maybe that wouldn’t be so bad.
IMG_0437
Next up is a most exciting new item called the Sheer Fashion Anklet.  I think these are excellent with trousers or slacks, especially for those who are grossed out with knee-highs.
IMG_0423 The sheer is pretty, the ankle cuff is thick and supportive without being binding, and per typical of kushyfoot products, they have that awesome chevron textured ribbing on the underside for added comfort, as well as for keeping them stationary inside slippery shoes.
sheer
Then we have the Sport Foot Cover!
IMG_0441
Now I’m a BIG fan of these sport foot covers.  Socks with gym shoes is a total must, and these are practically invisible.  Notice how the top is made from a mesh material that allows for ventilation.  The grippies on the inside of the heel and the extra lip on the back keep your socks in place no matter how active you get.  Besides that, they are comfy, comfy.  Stretchy in all directions and made of a very soft knit.
sport2
And here we have the Super Ultra Low Cut foot covers in size Regular and Large.
IMG_0448Now with all these superlatives, its hard to know which is the MOST low cut just from the descriptions, but as you can probably guess, these are pretty low too.  No show in the front, regardless of your shoe style as long as it is close-toed, but you might see a hint on the side.  I love the all-lace toe, with the added benefit of a full sole and of course, the kushyfoot padded trademark on the bottom.
IMG_0455
And last but not least, here are the Toe Covers.  TOE covers, not foot covers.  Kind of weird.  The picture shows these being worn with open-back slippers, which I get, but then the clear elastic still shows along your heel.  Perhaps these are ideal with sling back/close-toed shoes?  I’m sure there is a perfect shoe out there for these toe covers, but I’m still kind of stumped.  Regardless of their intended function, they’re comfortable, roomy, and sheer-ly beautiful.
cover
Now, note that all of these are reasonably priced and nothing you see is over $10.  Also new is the pair of foot covers for larger feet sizes.  Believably, the average foot size has grown from a size 8 to a size 9, so Kushyfoot is rolling with the trends and following suit.  I’m also loving the additional skin tones that are making these more appealing to a larger number of women.

Again, these are so affordable, ranging from $3.99 to $9.99 retail.  Kushyfoot products (and there are over 50 styles) include Flats to Go®, tights, trouser socks, anklets/crews, foot and toe covers, shoe cushions, sport socks (including pedicure and yoga socks) and home/dorm socks, as well as men’s socks and liners.  They’ve got you covered.  Literally.

Be sure to follow Kushyfoot on Facebook!

Pinky Paradise Color Contacts {Giveaway}

Pinky Paradise Color Contacts {Giveaway}

Ok, I’ve been wanting to try these out since I got contacts in junior high!  How incredible that you can even DO this!  Does Wizard of Oz come to mind, with the lyrics, “Can you even dye my eyes to match my dress?”  Totally.  558304_377706098926581_1729765139_n-2

Pinky Paradise is like the headquarters for circle lenses, colored contacts, beauty products, and accessories.   I’m most drawn to their colored contacts where you can literally change or enhance the color of your eyes, even if they are dark brown.  Don’t tell me that these pictures are intriguing!

1794824_718822694814918_591974353_nDon’t wear contacts?  You can order these without a prescription, so you’re just getting color without altering your vision in the least.  Still love the color you’ve got?  You can choose from dozens of options that lighten, darken, deepen, or enhance your current color.

green2I took at least over an hour trying to decide what color to get.  I wanted to try them all.  I decided that I wanted something that would be noticeably different, but still in a natural way.

IMG_0002

I ordered the EOS Ice Green lenses.  Major success on the first day I wore them out when a friend asked, “Whoa, is that your natural eye color?!  It looks like you have Disney Princess eyes!”  I think the green over top my blue makes a beautiful teal.

green

So are you wondering if they’re comfortable?  I honestly don’t feel them at all!  Surely, they’re probably larger in diameter than my normal contacts, but I think that only gives them a better seal, and less of a chance that they’ll slipping around my eye balls.  Better hold.

IMG_0018

They are not drying or irritating in the least.  I basically put them in and forget completely about them.  I have noticed, however, that at the end of a long day, they do feel a little dry, so I try to not wear these on days that I know I’ll be out or up late.  Plus, get a cute little animal contact case with every order!

IMG_9896You guys, these are so affordable.  This pair of lenses I received were $22.90.  How much are you paying currently for your colorless contacts?  About that much?  These have a 1-year life span!!  I bet you’re paying a whoooole lot more yearly on your contacts already.  You’re saving $ AND looking fabulous with these.

Have I convinced you yet?!  Go check out Pinky Paradise and pick out your favorite new eye color!

Online Store / Facebook / Twitter

One lucky winner will get to choose a pair of lenses of their choice!!

Plus and cute little animal contact case!  There is no charge on the shipping fee and this is open worldwide!

*This giveaway is open to WORLDWIDE entries!

Tangled Tantrum {GIVEAWAY}

Tangled Tantrum {GIVEAWAY}

Today we are chatting a little bit about my favorite subject: HAIR! I am a hairstylist and am around hair for more then 40 hours a week. I love it all, coloring, cutting, the tools, and products. The key to having good hair is : Good tools and Great product. Product is key to keeping a style where you want it. Sometimes the product we put in our own hair may not work for kids hair. I’ve noticed that big time when I am working on my clients kids. That moose or gel just isn’t working in my 6 year old client.

tantrum3

I have been following Tangled Tantrum for a while now and am so excited to finally test out their products! Tangled Tantrum is a line fully dedicated to kids hair. Trust me, it’s for kids only, my husband thought I bought him so new product and it just wasn’t cutting it for all of his thick long hair. Kids hair is just so much more fragile then adults and they definitely don’t have as much, which means they don’t need as much product.

tantrum

Tangled Tantrum is paraben and alcohol free, which makes is safe and healthy for kids. This is awesome for those independent kids who want to feel grown up like mom and dad and do their own hair. The product I was able to sample was the ‘Separation Anxiety- Styling Paste’ and it’s so easy to use. I had a few of my own kid clients grab it themselves and style their hair and they loved it. And the best part, the mess was non-existent. They just wiped their hands on a towel and out the door they went. Win Win in my book!

tantrum2

 

Tangled Tantrum offers a few different products. They have the ‘Chaos Control Smoothing Serum’ , ‘Detangling & Conditioning Spray’ (every child needs this!), ‘The Wet Brush’ and the ‘Killer Swell Hair Gel’ . I love all these fun names they give the products. That’s the point of the product right? To make a kid thing it’s fun to do their hair, haha.

tantrum5

I am also huge on my customer service. Tangled Tantrum emailed me right away and my shipment was at my door no later then 3-4 days after I placed my order. They left me a sweet note and some fun wristbands in the picture above. Their site is easy to navigate and gives quick explanations for each product. She makes the site look so fun that your kid can join you while you pick out your products. What I got out of  Tangled Tantrum is fun, safe, and easy to use.

tantrum4

I really loved how the product held up in my little clients hair. It wasn’t sticky, it wasn’t heavy and best of all it smelt great! One of my little clients just sat there the whole time smelling the container. It didn’t bother me at all because it contains no Parabens or Alcohol. Smell away! I really like how Tangled Tantrum made a line specifically to be kid friendly. She really tried hard to point everything to the kids. The packaging, the names of the product and the smells.

tantrum6

Today one lucky winner will get to have a container of there ‘Separation Anxiety- Styling Paste’ and 3 wristbands with Tangled Tantrum logo. I like more of a softer look, that’s why I went for the Paste rather then the gel. It still gives it that good hold but gives it that piecy look while holding back those fly aways and frizzy-ness.  You and your kiddy will love it! They are also offering free shipping on orders over $50, use code: ship4free

Hot Slings {Giveaway}

Hot Slings {Giveaway}

Welcome to the [2nd Annual] Showered With Love Event hosted by the Blogging Mamas Network!

Showered with LoveWe all know that April Showers bring May Flowers, but did you know that some of your favorite bloggers have come together throw a huge Shower of our own – a virtual Baby Shower! The Showered with Love Event will run from April 1-15, giving you plenty of time to enter all of the great giveaways, in the linky below, including the Grand Prize of a Combi Catalyst Travel System!

Showered with Love GP_jpg

But first, here is our Dandy prize!

I’ve been babysitting a few cuties lately during the day while their mothers (my good friends) have appointments or work shifts.  Its been so fun having little babies in the house again!  My two beefy boys are so sweet with these freshies, and its been fun pulling out all our infant toys and swings.  One thing I totally forgot about is how much of the day you can spend carrying that baby on your hip!  Especially when they’re missing their mommies, I find I spend these entire babysitting days carrying them around in my arms.  Boy oh boy, am I out of shape!  Where has all my arm strength gone?  I started digging through my baby boxes to find my wraps and realized that a sling would be a whole lot easier for these in-and-outers.  I am soooo glad one of these Hot Slings arrived at my door to review!  Great timing.

logo_tag

This is the Lemon Mist Hot Sling, sold for $64.95 at www.hotslings.com.  Over $60 might sound like a lot for what you imagine would be just a loop a fabric, but let me show and tell you about how this sling is so superior to others I’ve tried in the past.

hot1First of all, I find slings to be so much more realistic than full body wraps just because of the time it takes to put on yourself and get the baby situated inside.  I feel like with a full wrap, by the time you get yourself wrapped up folds of fabric that criss-cross every which way, the baby is inconsolable and not in the mood to be snuggled at all.  Slings are fast to put on, and easy to place around baby.  This is a wide shoulder design, so that all of the baby’s weight isn’t directed on one focal point by your neck.  You can distribute the weight all along your shoulder and upper arm, which allows you to carry that cutie for longer hours before feeling sore and tired.

hotThere are inner straps sewn into the design that allow you to really get a customized fit.  Two buckles on the outside allow you to adjust securely.  Also included in this sling packaging is a diaper/wipes sack with velcro closure to toss in the diaper bag!  Cute and functional!  Thanks, HotSlings.

hot2Another feature that I really love, and haven’t seen on other slings, is a ring of padding along the top and bottom of the sling.  It keeps the fabric from digging into your side and back, as well as baby’s back and legs.  The curve in the design is perfect for snuggling little baby shapes comfortably.

hot3I carried sweet baby C around in this for a couple hours and she was perfectly content.  Body contact is so great for babies.  I love this sling!  I’m impressed, pleased, and glad to have this around the house–for all the babies that visit and future babies of my own. HS-Styles-for-BlogThese HotSlings are available in so many fun prints!  I love how lots of them are gender neutral and geometric.

The promo code “DANDY14″ is good for 25% off your entire purchase at Hotslings.com!

Simply Essentials Baking Mat and Pan Set {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

With double the number of women in this house (my sister-in-law has been living with us for the last seven months), the amount of baking and cooking in this house has also doubled.  I feel like everything in the kitchen gets used and washed twice as frequently, so I’m really noticing what things are lasting and which things are not, as well as which things I hate cleaning by hand.  The baking pans are one of those things.  They’re big, they don’t fit well in the dishwasher, and they’re usually coated in something sticky and tough.  Ever since I received this duo from Simply Essentials, its been used for everything that goes into the oven.

IMG_9939 copy

This is the Simply Essentials Baking Mat and Baking Pan Set.  The non-stick baking mat is fantastic.  My sister-in-law says that it is very similar, if not identical, to the Silpat that she owns, which was probably much more expensive.  This really extends the life if your baking pans and keeps you from having to buy/use oil, butter, cooking sprays, parchment, tin foil, etc.

IMG_9940 copyThis unique material consists of a glass weave and food grade silicone.  I love how the mat can roll, freeze, and go in the microwave.  I especially love how I can easily store it anywhere.  Right now, I have it resting inside the stored baking pans under the oven.  I’m hoping this lasts us years and years!

IMG_0050 copy

We hadn’t noticed any problems with the mat retaining stains until we baked a pizza on top.  The red sauce left quite a bit of greasy residue leftover that wouldn’t rinse off even with soap and scrubbing, but after time, more usage, and more scrubbing, it is lightening up.  I don’t think it alters the effectiveness of the product; its only a cosmetic thing.

mat

Also wonderful was the included baking pan.  This cookie sheet measures 16 5/8 x 11 3/4 inches x .73 mm thick.  It is shiny, smooth, easy to stack and store, and the wide lip on the edges keeps spills at bay.

Included in this set was a packet of useful and tasty recipes!  Thanks, Simply Essentials!  Can’t wait to try out that cookie recipe.

Get ready to win your own mat and pan set!!

You can buy your own set HERE on Amazon for $34.99.  Save yourself the hassle of scrubbing, and pocket the money you’ve been spending on foil, parchment, and cooking sprays.

*This giveaway is open to US entries only
*The winner of this giveaway will be drawn no later than the evening of April 5th and will be emailed.  If the winner does not respond within 24 hours, a new winner will be drawn.
*The product(s) in this review was provided to me free of cost for the purpose of conducting this review.  All opinions expressed in this review are my own are not influenced by monetary compensation. 

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Milan Maternity {Giveaway}

Milan Maternity {Giveaway}

Think about your wardrobe: do you have at least one top that is so comfortable and so flattering that you can put it on with anything–dress pants, jeans, a skirt, sweat pants–and instantly feel glamorous, even if your hair is a mess and you have no makeup on? I found one of those tops from Milan Maternity, and to feel that way while also being pregnant is no small feat!

logo

Milan Maternity is an online maternity boutique whose mission is “to provide designer style that flatters your new shape at prices you can be happy about.” And boy, have they got some cute styles! They have gorgeous tops–some that are dressy and some that are more casual–and don’t even get me started on the dresses! Super adorable. Most of their clothes can be worn before and after pregnancy, making them even more of a great deal! Here’s just a sampling of their cute collection:

collection

The shirt I chose to review was the Adriana in Bordeaux. This top is one of their “transitional” pieces that can be worn before and after pregnancy, and while nursing! There are hidden snaps and a shelf bra-type insert in the top that allow for convenient, discreet nursing while wearing the top. So much better than exposing my entire back and flabby middle while trying to feed a fussy baby! I can’t wait to wear this top with a tiny belly and try out the snazzy nursing feature.

snaps

The quality of this top is top-notch. The fabric is soft and stretchy and the ruching along the sides is long enough to to stretch over my growing belly (with plenty of room to spare!). It is well made and the style of the top is classic–I’m a total sucker for the faux-shrug style. My only complaint is that the “hidden” snaps for nursing end up showing more than I’d like them to. The fabric that is supposed to cover them gets bunched up, revealing the snaps most of the time. Surely a small snap on the outside to hold the extra fabric down over the snaps would solve this problem quickly, but it is one thing to be aware of.
