Mooshka Sing Around the Rosie Doll {Giveaway} – CLOSED

About my Ruby

A couple of years back when I found out that I was having a baby girl I was beyond ecstatic.  Don’t get me wrong.  I love all my children equally.  They each have their own unique qualities  and are so super sweet.  Basically I just love being their mommy!   *grin*   When Ruby came along I just knew that she and I would bond.  She would like all the things that I liked as a child.  She would like unicorn figurines.  She would like the creepy looking dolls that survived my childhood and were saved just for her.  She would like those plastic charm necklaces.  She would like to collect stickers in a sticker book.  She would like to get in shape girl.  Okay are you ready for a shocker?  I was a child of the 80’s.  I know.  You weren’t really able to figure that out already from my childhood likes list.  *wink*  Yes, Ruby was going to be just like me.  Exactly like me.  You know what?  She likes none of those things.  Not. At. All.  She likes music way more than I ever did.  The girl seriously walks around the house singing all day.  She likes super heroes, trains, and building blocks.  Basically anything and everything that her older brother likes.  She likes baby dolls that are so different than the ones of the 80’s.  They aren’t even remotely creepy looking!  Speaking of the dolls that she likes…

Combine her love of music with a cute doll and what do you get???

This adorable doll!

Here’s my Ruby playing ‘Ring around the Rosie’ with her new friend:

Mooshka sent us her new friend and she has been having too much fun playing.  Banjo has even been joining in on the fun.  There are several “singing” dolls to choose from.  Each one just as cute as the next.  We have Lera and she’s perfect, because she resembles our little girl!

And… I’m giving away a Lera Mooshka doll to one very lucky winner!

Fancy Ewe {Giveaway} – Closed

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

One of the reasons why I love the cooler weather..DRESSES! I could wear a dress every single day if I could. When I was younger, my punishment wasn’t being grounded, it was that I had to wear pants all day. Haha, no joke. A dress just makes me feel so girly and fun.

I don’t wear dresses as often as I would like to because I can rarely find them 1. that doesn’t cost me my whole pay check 2. fit just right in all the right places 3.covers me up in the right places. If I find a store that can fit all 3 of those things then you know I am going back to that store often!

fancyewe

I am stoked I discovered Fancy Ewe!! Their dresses are just breath taking! Not only do they offer dresses, but aprons, accessories, jewelry and bags. Fancy Ewe has been designing adorable aprons for 6 years and recently decided to put their talents into modest beautiful dresses! You may have seen their dresses appear on Shabby Apple.

Belle_De_Jour_Mint_Green_2

Their dresses are just stunning! I had a hard time choosing from the styles, I had to bring in the sister squad (all 4 of my sisters) to get their opinions. Even my husband had to help me choose! Haha.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

I decided to go with the “Bouquet” dress and it definitely did not disappoint. It literally fit me like a glove and I have never received so many compliments on one dress. The length, the sleeves, the bodice, I felt like I had it handmade just to my measurements. Seriously!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Fancy Ewe fits true to size, ladies! So now wondering if you need to go up or down a size because of the material or design. And ordering this was so easy and a great experience. Fancy Ewe was able to talk me through my measurements and what she thought would work best for me. My dress arrived in the exact time they had told me (actually it arrived a day earlier, even better!) I am leaving for California in a few weeks and you bet this dress will be worn multiple times!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Fancy Ewe is seriously so incredibly sweet! They not only are giving away one dress of your choice but they are also giving a special discount to Dandy Giveaway readers. They are discounting any dress to $45, normally at $60. You will need to email Fancy Ewe directly to receive this discount ( do not order directly from the site) Email: fancyewe09@gmail.com Make sure you mention that you are from Dandy Giveaway blog! I really hope you all take full advantage of this amazing discount and snag this “Bouquet” dress. Like I said, the fit = amazing!

Caralase {GIVEAWAY} CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

With the season change and Spring being so short, I like to look for things that can easily transition into Summer also. I feel like the key to a great spring/summer outfit is comfort and versatility. If I can wear a shirt 3 different ways then you better know I am buying that sucker! If that shirt is going to stay in place and I am not constantly tugging and pulling at it to make it from showing to much then it will definitely end up in my closet!

caralase

Caralase has all of that and more! Comfort, versatility and just about the most darling clothing items ever. When they asked me which item I wanted to review I probably sat on their website for a good hour trying to figure out which one I would wear the most (which happened to be 99% of them) and which one I could transition from Spring to Summer.

caralase2

Two words came to mind when I saw Caralase clothing line, Soft and whimsical. Everything you see looks so comfortable and light and airy. Perfect for the cool Spring day and then bring them right into a breezy Summer night. Now that’s my kind of boutique!

caralase3 caralase4

What I love most about Caralase is that they have the basic things you need in your closet (tee’s, boyfriend tee, long sleeve) but they aren’t just plain jane. Like this Pink long sleeve tunic above, ooo I am just swooning over the lace finish. And every girl needs a fun maxi. The fit on this one is so slimming with the fun bright print!

I also really like how they offer a variety of pictures of the item. The other day I was looking at a shirt on another site and there were no pictures of what it looked like on. I was immediately drawn away from that site. I like to see what it looks like on from different angles so I can get an idea of how it will fit.

caralase6

I love love LOVE my cobalt draped slub cardigan . The fit is amazing. Especially around the arms, sleeves in cardigans never tend to hit my wrists but this one hit at the right spot. Making it look like it actually fits haha. I love that it is so light and airy (I told you!) and I can wear it in the Summer time for those late night BBQ’s or hanging outside chatting.

caralase5

I think I’ve already worn this cardigan 3 or 4 times and each time in a different style. I’ve worn it with a skirt and heels (my favorite) and as you see, in a more casual way with boyfriend shirts and chucks/flats. Like I said, anything that you can wear multiple ways is a win in my book!

Valleau Apparel {GIVEAWAY} – Closed

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

I am only picky about 2 workout clothing items. My running shorts and my sports bras. My sports bras need to fit just right, where they are not to tight around my sides but support me all the way around. I like to run far and I love doing sprints in the middle and end of my runs. I have stopped my run before because my sports bra just wasn’t giving me the support I felt I needed.

valleau

Valleau Apparel offers the cutest most unique sports bras. I honestly can say that they are now my favorite line to buy my bras from. Valleau Apparel was founded by Katie Valleau, a NCAA gymnast who knows what it means to have good, supportive, cut workout attire. She designs each sports bra with a story behind it and making it unique and different then any brand you’ve worn.

valleau6

I love fun unique sports bras. Not only do I love all the designs Valleau Apparel has to offer (sooo cute) but their fabric is amazing! I like to break a sweat when I work out, and need good material to absorb all of it. I wore my Valleau Apparel sports bra on a day where I did a triple work out. I worked out in the afternoon and then ran 3 miles, then I went and stunted with my husband (yep, we are cheerleaders) then I went back a few hours later and stunted with some others for 3 more hours. I definitely got my good sweat in that day.

valleau2

I ordered a size small and was a little nervous when I first saw it. But like I said, I like my sports bras a little more secure. I really really liked the small and how snug I felt. I wouldn’t mind going up a size but am completely fine with the small size I ordered. So, if you like things a little more snug, then order your normal size or else order a size up.

valleau3

(Husbands idea of flexing..oh boy!)

The sports bras do not come with cups but are double lined, which I loved! I normally buy my sports bras with padding, but honestly felt very comfortable with the double lined fabric as well. Which, I was really surprised since 99% of my sports bras have cups in them.

valleau5

(Valleau Apparel in action 😉 )

Valleau Apparel has a “Sexy” line which has a lower cut in front therefore expose a little more cleavage and then they have their sports bras which are more covered and meant for smaller sizes.

I highly recommend following Valleau Apparel on Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram and checking them out. They are simply amazing and you’ll just die over their line!

Valleau Apparel is giving away one sports bra of your choice! Enter below!

Nohi Kids {Giveaway} – CLOSED

When it comes to my kid’s clothing I’m kind of a fabric snob.  It has to be soft.  Scratchy?  Not happening.  It has to be functional and easy to take care of in terms of laundry.  Who really wants to take the kid’s clothes to the dry cleaners?  It has to be cute.  This means cute fabric that aren’t found everywhere.  That’s why I’m soooo very glad that I found Nohi Kids.  For starters… Their clothing is organic.  Translation:  Super soft.  Next… Their clothing is machine washable.  Excellent!  Lastly… The prints on the fabric???  Absolutely.  Adorable.

See.  Told you.  Absolutely.  Adorable.

I think the above images are my favorite part about the clothing from Nohi.

1.) That fabric is too precious.

And…

2.) There are so many different styles all in that same fabric!

So you will definitely find the perfect outfit at Nohi Kids.

What did Nohi Kids send me recently???  These two outfits for my two littlest littles:

Vicolo Mio {GIVEAWAY} CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

My favorite accessory shops are the ones where I can snag everything. Purses, necklaces, rings, you name it. I love a “one stop shop”.

Vicolomio

Vicolo Mio has it all. Handbags, jewelry, scarves and ponchos and even puts together a jewelry set for those “accessory addicts” .  Vicolo Mio thinks of it all. And what’s even more amazing is they categorize everything by color also. Whenever I am in need of a new accessory, I usually have something in mind, starting with color and item. Like right now, I am just swooning over light spring colors. So, it was nice to just look up “pink” items and pick out a few favorites.

vicolormio3

vicolomio4

I had a little to much fun mixing and matching different colors together and making my own jewelry set. Vicolo Mio also offers a ‘Shop Guide’ to all their customers. Whether you are finding a gift for a bride, friends birthday, or even yourself, Vicolo Mio has it categorized for you.

I received this darling chain/link leather bracelet from Vicolo Mio and I think it’s in my top favorite accessories. It’s so simple,without over powering all the other jewelry you have on. I love small, simple accessories for days I just want to throw something on without looking like I got dressed in the dark.

Reed & Barton Girls Jewelry Boxes {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

When I was a little girl, I had one of those romantic white jewelry boxes with wind-up tinkling music and a dancing ballerina inside. It was one of my prized possessions for much of my childhood! I don’t know where it is now, but I do remember the last time I saw it, it clearly had endured a lot of love in those years.

rb-logo

Now that I’m a mom, I can’t wait to give a future daughter a jewelry box of her own. Reed & Barton has some absolutely gorgeous jewelry boxes for girls, all beautiful, and all an gorgeous addition to anyone’s vanity shelf.

625mr_2 664cb

These are so classic and so beautiful! Each one looks like a work of fine craftsmanship with smooth paint and lovely lines. I was honored to review the Bella Jewelry Box, sold for $85 at Reed & Barton. It looks like a charming little armoire! Well, actually, there’s nothing ‘little’ about it. This jewelry chest is huge and SOOO much bigger than I realized, based on the online pictures of the item. It reminds me of the grand wardrobe in Beauty & the Beast.

Everything about it emotes “quality”.  And “princess”.  I love it!  No corners have been cut in its construction.  The hinges are oiled, the velvet interior is expertly draped, and even magnetic parts are built into the doors for a soft and secure closure.

IMG_9095

I love that this isn’t a drop box or a ‘catch-all’. There are compartments for rings and pendant hooks for necklaces, so that each piece has a place to go without getting tangled and lost at the bottom. The pink jeweled knobs are just a little glam, and the hot pink flocked velvet interior is so pretty!

pink

The finished measurements are 9 5/8 x 6 1/8 x 12 1/2″ H. That’s over a foot tall, if you can’t tell from these pictures, and the box it came in weighed around 9 pounds.

IMG_9101

Everything is out of sight, contained and safe. I am tickled pink (!) with how much jewelry can fit inside, away from toddler fingers and settling dust. I can see how a box with so many pull-out parts that requires cleared shelf space on both sides, above, and in front can be difficult to store, but for how many things you can fit inside, I think this is really a space-saver in the end.

Reed & Barton is well known for their pristine silver findings, and their baby mementos are breathtaking. Feast your eyes on their crystal, dinnerware, baby spoons, pewter frames, and of course, their lovely jewelry boxes.

Coastal Scents {Review}

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

coastalscents

What girl doesn’t love getting dolled up?! Especially with some fun make-up! Even if you are the minimalist with just a bit of mascara and nude lipgloss, it still feels great! Growing up, my mom got me the cheapest make-up and brushes you could find. Which was probably a great idea with the way I treated my make-up/brushes. Oops. But as I’ve gotten more responsible with my items, I’ve noticed I needed a little higher quality things to get the job done.

coastscents2

I am soooo glad I found Coastal Scents. They are an online make-up company that offers you everything from make-up brushes to primers to eyeshadows and lip glosses and more! I noticed my brushes started to loose their bristles all over my face when I was doing my make-up. Not very cute when you are having a conversation with a client and they are staring at this long piece of hair on your face haha. So, I knew it was time for some new brushes and good quality ones!

coastscents3

Coastal Scents sent me the ‘Sterling Devine Brush Set’. This set comes with 6 brushes and a pouch on the side to add other brushes or make-up. These brushes are perfect for every part of the face. I love how soft and what great quality they are.

coastscents4

I also needed one extra brush to use for my mineral veil and the ‘Bionic Flat Top Buffer’ is amazing! Like I said, it’s so soft and i love the flat top it has so I can quickly just throw on my veil/primer without over doing it.

Coastal Scents offers so many different make-up sets (which I love when you are needing a whole new set) Their prices are incredible! I went to Sephora a few weeks ago and couldn’t handle spending $20 on one brush. Coastal Scents offers a wide range of brushes and sets that go towards every girls need.

coastscents5

They also sent me their ‘Step One Eye Primer’ and I LOVE it! I have the most oiliest skin. Like, we don’t need to get into how oily it is haha. So my eyeshadow always creases by mid day and I hate it. The ‘Step One Eye Primer’ has helped my shadow stay on longer and continue staying fresh.

coastalscents7

They also offer amazing lip palettes and lip glosses. With so many different colors to choose from, you won’t be disappointed! It’s always tough for me to find lip colors that match with my skin ( I like darker tones and more carmel) and everything comes out to red. Coastal designs has over 60 lip colors to choose from. You can’t go wrong there!

coastscents6

I also love how Coastal Scents categorizes their shadows by color scheme. I wish I was that girl who could wear every color in the rainbow. But we all know that doesn’t fly with everyone haha. So I love how really work with every skin type. Coastal Scents is definitely my new go to for make-up items!

 *I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free through Coastal Scents. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
