{Giveaway} PortaPocket ***ENDED***

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 always think I have it so together when I leave the house.  Like I said last week, I have a tendency to overpack when I go out.  And it’s weird, because somehow when I get somewhere (usually Target), I think I can make it in and out and not need to haul my giant bag.  Somehow my brain doesn’t always remember that it’s not like the old days, where I can just pop into the grocery store with my keys in one hand, my debit card in the other and call it good.  And yet, I still try and get away with that plan — WHY?  It’s like when I am getting out of my van (that right there should be my first sign that my hands will be full), that I overlook the fact that I will be carrying one kid in one arm, and another kid in my other arm (although it’s a great bicep workout).   But I keep trying, and I find myself wrestling my debit card from one kid every 2 seconds, because it’s not safely in my wallet, in my bag or in my pocket. 

But now I can be so sneaky!  For those quick trips where you just aren’t in the mood to haul it all — try the PortaPocket!  The PortaPocket is really an “Undercover Solution” for those times when you don’t have a pocket, or a free hand.  The PortaPocket is easy to use, super lightweight and convenient.  The PortaPocket is a little pocket that slides onto a velcro strap (belt loop style) that you can wear around your calf, thigh, ankle, arm, or even your waist!  It’s not only easy to use, but it’s more secure than a handbag or purse.  You can slip it on under your clothes and no one will even know it’s there. 

Don’t just take my word for it — the PortaPocket was featured on The Today Show as a “cure for your fashion emergencies.”  Sometimes a purse just isn’t practical — and now you can keep track of your stuff with confidence.  You can check out all of the PortaPocket products here — which one do you need?

One lucky duck is going to win a PortaPocket Essentials+ kit!

August 23rd is a super big day for my husband to REMEMBER!  Hopefully he reads this posting…  Just kidding honey!   Today the parents of Banjo have been married for 8 years.  That’s like 4 times 2 people!  :)  A long time,  but extremely wonderful amount of time.  In that amount of time we have moved to one new city and then back to the other.  College graduations happened.  We bought our first home.  Our little Banjo arrived.  We bought our second home.  Yep lots can happen in 8 years.  Back up to that second home bit…  With the second home came loads more rooms, loads more space, and a bit of fixing up.  Now we have room for a kitchen table and dining room table.  But how does my dining room look?  Picture just a table and 4 chairs.  That would be my dining room!  Recently I received a gift certificate from CSN and I’m looking forward to using it towards adding some things into my dining room… at Dining Rooms Direct!

  My dining room is really lacking.  It could use this:

One of these:

and…

A few extra chairs!

Oh and I can’t forget about this really cool rug:

It may take me a while to get my perfect dining room, but at least I know where to find everything I want.  At Dining Rooms Direct!  :)  

CSN has over 200 stores, so they sell basically everything!  Even new light fixtures for my perfect dining room! 

Ready to win?

One lucky winner is going to receive a $20 gift certificate to spend at a CSN store of choice!

Does everyone out there know about the awesomeness that is CSN? They have EVERYTHING that your little hearts could ever be looking for. With over 200 online stores — you name it, you can find it on CSN.  They sent me a $25 gift certificate and my head is still reeling from how to spend it… Anyways, lately I’ve been having serious envy for “someone else’s house stuff” — you know, you see some really cool feature or fancy home decor and think, “Now why don’t I have that in MY house?” Since potty-training my two-year old, we’ve been spending hours and hours and days in the bathroom and I can’t help but think how much I wish I was chillin’ in there with this:
Or in the mornings, when it’s a mad dash to just brush my teeth in peace in the the bathroom before my husband leaves for work and I know it’ll be quite a while before I have a spare second again, I should very much love to be standing underneath this guy:
And if neither of these fits your fancy, you can search by just about any terms you like: sink height, number of sinks, and would you like mirrors or lights with that?
And i DARE you to find a cuter vanity than this:
Go ahead and try. You won’t.  CSN has a positively endless selection of bathroom vanities!
One lucky duck is going to win a $25 gift certificate to any CSN store!  With you $25 jump start, you can get going on your bathroom in style. And if you’re not really in the mood for home renovations today, I’m sure that in just a few minutes of browsing (although you really could spend HOURS on CSN), you could find another item or two that you’d like.

Like most children his age, my son is very independent. He likes to “attempt” to do things himself and be like the big kids. Or rather the adults since that’s who he is primarily around…my husband and myself! Of course this isn’t limited to only at dinner time, but it is a time when we are all together. For some reason our son hasn’t been entirely impressed by his personal selection of sporks. 🙂 They are after all plastic and won’t really spear his current favorite food (broccoli) very well. He would much rather be using our silverware, but unfortunately kids his age don’t have the full on dexterity to keep a good hold on the smooth utensils. Fortunately there is a company named The Pencil Grip which sells cutlery perfect for kids! The Pencil Grip recently sent me some Gripables:

And they are awesome! Perfectly designed for kids to be able to hold onto their very own silverware.
The Pencil Grip is also all about educational products like….

Entire Back to School Kits:

And of course at The Pencil Grip you will even find a wide selection of pencil grips!

The Pencil Grip has so many items that are sBoldo very useful for everyone! Ready to find out what is being given away? Well, remember that great cutlery that I now own? Two lucky winners will be receiving their very own set of Gripables cutlery! That’s right 2 winners!
One winner will receive pink:
And the other winner will receive blue:

Soda Stream ***ENDED***

Have you ever wondered how fun it would be to make your own soda? Well, with Soda Stream you can do just that! Soda Stream sent me the starter kit recently and I was really interested in how the soda would turn out. I mean…I’ve never made my very own soda before! My family got together for New Year’s Eve and I figured it was the perfect time to make some soda. The system was really easy to use. You use tap water, carbonate it with the Soda Stream system, and then add the flavoring. At first we were hesitant thinking that we wouldn’t know when it was fully carbonated and didn’t know what exactly to listen for to know when the process was complete. The instructions say there will be a buzzing sound, but the system doesn’t use any batteries or electrical power. No worries…you definitely know when the “buzzing sound” occurs! It made me jump! 🙂 There are over lots of different flavors of soda to be made with the Soda Stream.We found out that the soda tasted just like that bought in the store. The lemon-lime flavor compares to a leading brand of lemon-lime soda and we found this out through a blind taste test! The Soda Stream didn’t just make a good tasting drink, but was fun for a party. Can you imagine what fun it will be to make our own rootbeer for floats? Our son is going to love that family activity! But Soda Stream is more than just fun. It can be used daily instead of waiting for a party. Also, Soda Stream is eco friendly; virtually eliminating the pile up of soda bottle and cans!

One very lucky winner is going to be very happy, because that winner will be receiving a Fountain Jet Soda Starter Kit from Soda Stream!

This will include all that you see here…PLUS a Variety 9 pack of Sodamix! Yep that’s over a $100 value!
So enter to win! Tell you friends and family to enter to win, because this is a great giveaway!

What mom isn’t constantly packing around snacks for her toddler? Not just for toddlers, but for older kids and even for herself! When my son reached the age of requiring snacks throughout the day this became a major pain for me, because the plastic containers were so bulky in my bag. So I switched to those little plastic baggies, because they just fit better in the diaper bag. You all know that became even more of a pain. Of course they were only good for single use, would tear sometimes during that first use, and I thought, “What a waste!” Fortunately I found ReUsies! This is the eco-friendly alternative for snack and sandwich bags! ReUsies said that they would send me some of their snack and sandwich size bags and I must admit at first I was just slightly skeptical. But that mindset changed very fast once I actually saw them in person. ReUsies are made from great material to prevent leakage, but are also machine washable. Making them totally reusable! Goodbye plastic baggies! 🙂 What’s more…ReUsies are both functional and fun looking! There are so many snack and sandwich ReUsies to choose from:

Aren’t all of these fabric options so cute and fun for the kiddos?
The winner of this giveaway is going to receive a snack size and a sandwich size bag just like I did! So enter to win! This giveaway is open to anyone who resides anywhere in the world, so that means anyone can enter to win. 🙂
