Pajama Drama Wonka Sleepwear {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.

Sleeping. Oh how I love sleeping. I completely wish that I could cash in all of those naps I skipped when I was little to use today! I sleep with the most coveted blanket in the house! It’s white, crisp, just the right heaviness for winter but light enough for summer, and is affectionately called the “woobie.” My sleepwear however is not so coveted. It’s made up of a old, over sized college t-shirts and old yoga pants with paint splatters on them. Did you catch the common word here? Old. My sleepwear is comfortable but certainly nothing I’d brag about. My sleepwear was in need of some serious sprucing up. Enter Pajama Drama. Not only do they have totally cute sleepwear but they’re actually launching a new line in which they’re working with Nestle and Wonka!

Pajama Drama’s team says that “Together, we’re leading the revolution to banish moo moos and caftans from retailers across America and replacing them with pj’s inspired by ready to wear fashion & fabrics.” I feel like Pajama Drama as a whole totally lives up to this statement! They have cute and fashionable pajamas. Once you have a look at what they offer I’m wondering if you’ll feel the same way as me and want to liven up your sleepwear.

The set is made up of 2 pieces. The long sleeve is made up of a burn out material so it’s pretty light, perfect for a chilly summer evening, and soft too. The shorts are made of similar material, it’s soft but not burnout. I absolutely love the cute little Nerd. His glasses are totally adorable!

Pros:

Cute colors, design, and material.

Light enough for summer, and I feel like the top could be pair with a cute pair of bottoms in the winter too.

Cons:

The shirt was a bit tight through the arms.

Is your sleepwear in need of a totally cute pick me up? What’s your favorite thing to sleep in?

I am in love with Valentine’s Day!!  You’d think, after years and years of dreading the day that everyone else had a bouquet of roses delivered and a giant stuffed teddy to carry around at school, that I’d be a hater, but I can’t help falling in love with the idea of being in love!  Now that I have a live-in Valentine and two little sweethearts to love on, I am even more aglow with rosy Valentine feelings and urges to cut out strands of paper hearts and glue together glittery cards!

logoSo what are YOU doing for Valentine’s day?  Do you need a dress for your date night?  24/7 Frenzy has an entire collection of little black dresses, perfect for impressing your sweetheart and looking glam out on the town.

Besides LBD’s, 24/7 Frenzy has an extensive collection of casual dresses, tops, fun rompers, and an impressive number of lacy sleepwear items.  I picked out a pair of something lacy for myself, a microfiber cami and short set, crossdyed and detailed with rosettes.  I found the top to be the perfect type of cami for under button-ups.  Just a little lace to look fancy, while not too sheer or cheap.

KicKee Pants {Review}

Labor Day “officially” marks the end of summer, at least according to people who have kids in school. For those of us with kids little enough to be at home 24/7, summer’s still going, and will be for at least another month. But for those of you with school-age children, chances are, you’ve already done most of your back-to-school shopping, or maybe you’re going to finish it up this weekend with all the good Labor Day sales. But in case you’ve got just a few items of clothing left on your list or you’re looking for a gift for a friend (or something for yourself!) look no further than KicKee Pants!

KicKee Pants designs all its clothing with the idea that “children should feel unrestricted by their clothing, even when they are dressed up, and that apparel for little ones should celebrate the innocence of childhood!” I love this mantra! Kids should be able to run, skip, tumble and play in their clothes, but not have to live in grungy sweats 24/7 to be able to do so. KicKee Pants has an adorable girls line including dresses, rompers, pants, hoodies, tights and leggings, and much more. Check out just some of these cute designs!

girls

Their boys line is equally cute (though we should say “cool” for the sake of the boys). I love their pajama line–they pair fun fabrics in bold colors for the bottoms with a coordinating top. Some tops have a large single-digit number on them. How fun would it be to get a set of pajamas with your new age for your birthday?!

We were sent the Print Long Sleeve Polo in River Lattice to review. The shirt is solidly constructed and fits just right. My son is currently wearing a size 4T/5T/Boys size 4, and the size 5 fit him perfectly. The sleeves seemed a bit short, but maybe my son just has monkey arms (his dad does, so it’s a possibility). The fabric (95% Viscose from bamboo, 5% Spandex) is SUPER soft and stretchy and feels like it would be so comfortable to wear. It is long sleeved which will be warm in the winter but is light (not thin) which is good for my always-running-around-and-getting-sweaty boy. I love the print–it is fun and unique, and the colors blend well together. The blue looks great on my son, too! There’s no way I could get him to put this on with a pair of jeans or khaki pants in this heat, but you can imagine how slick this would look paired with a pair of pants!

KicKee Pants also has a great Women’s line. They sell all sorts of cute Maternity Shirts as well as Nightgowns and Robes. The nightgowns are made out of the same fabric as the shirt we were sent, and believe me, I could LIVE in a nightgown made out of this fabric.  I really don’t think I’d ever change out of it because it’s just so soft and stretchy and dreamy. The website suggests pairing the Nightgown with a Newborn Outfit (which they also sell) as a shower gift–how perfect would that be?!

Having a full figure is a blessing and a curse.  Usually a curse, in my opinion.  I haven’t been able to buy a fitting bra from a regular store (aka Target) since high school.  The waistline on dresses always creeps up to “empire” style, and finding a button-up shirt that fits in the waist but can still button all the way up is a joke.  I’ve taken completely to online shopping when it comes to bras, and whether you’re plus size or not up top, you will find some super flattering and beautiful bras at fullbeauty, in bra sizes 32-58, cup sizes A-N!

Fullbeauty2logo

The same frustration comes in finding swimsuits that cater to a full figure!!  Its a nightmare trying to find something with enough coverage AND support for a mom who doesn’t want to show a heap of cleavage at the kiddy pool.  Have YOU found your swimsuit of the season?  Let me show off some way cute options from fullbeauty!  All of these are perfection in my book: they come in larger bust sizes, they are modest, and they are right in line with what is stylish and trendy right now.  Big busted women can be stylish too!

20550_12779_mm  0550_13373_mm

What makes these suits so great is that they are made in larger sizes, and not just for high school bodies.  These are for the mom with stretch marks, saggy skin, and post-baby fluff!  Many of these suits feature compression fabric and built-in underwire support, along with tummy control panels in gathered side shirred styles to hide flaws.  Music to my ears.

I’m really embracing the swimdress lately.  Oh where are the thighs of my youth?!  I was super excited to review a swimdress from fullbeauty, and I hit the beach this weekend to show it off!  This is the Nautical Stripes Swimdress, sold for $69.99-$79.99, featuring a fun fold of fabric that starts across the bust and goes over the shoulder.

IMG_4777 copy

Things I love about this swimsuit: I LOVE nautical, so we were in instant match based on the colors and stripes.  The gold anchor clip on the shoulder is classic, and the fit is great.  This is not just a dress–it has a suit underneath made in powernet lining for great compression and comfort.  It has a shelf bra and foam cups, and I was surprised with the nice and thick weight of the nylon/spandex which also provides SPF 40+ UV protection.  Note that on my body, the shelf bra was pulling the swimsuit down too much for my taste, so I just snipped it out, and then it layed the way I wanted it to.

I love it!  I think it is the PERFECT mommy swimsuit.  I’m not trying to pick up men.  I’m trying to pick up hooligan children and keep them from drowning.  I don’t have to wear a frumpy swimteam one-piece, though!  This is still so cute in my book, and I feel so confident wearing it.

IMG_4798 copy

Ok, not to draw attention to my chest, but do you see how supported and shaped my (ahem) bust is?  I’ll let you in on a secret: The Swim Bra.  Have you heard of it? Fullbeauty sells this wonder for $34.99-$39.99, and when I saw it, I knew it would be worth every penny.

FB_SwimBanner_031613

Are you familiar with the feeling of droopiness and complete lack of support in a swimsuit?  There is nothing like feeling exposed and unsupported when you’re wearing nothing but stretch knit in front of family and friends.  This swim bra is my favorite addition to my swim wardrobe, and will accompany every swimsuit I ever wear.  So why is it so special?  First off, it has thin, quick-drying foam cups that won’t absorb water and make you look ridiculous.  Item #2: it has convertible straps that attach anywhere to work with every swimsuit style, regardless of whether you want to wear it with a halter top, cross-back, or even strapless suit.  Also, there are silicone grippers lining the top to provide a close and secure fit without shifting.  See?

IMG_4548

I’ve considered wearing this as a full-time daily bra, especially in the heat of the summer, when I’m sweating like a banshee and moisture under my clothes is so uncomfortable.  My only qualm is that the clear straps are too long, even when adjusted to the shortest length, to wear like tradition over-the-shoulder bra straps, but they’d probably be fine on a taller person, or when worn in a cross-body or halter style.  It is very lightweight and totally comfortable, and SO worth the investment.

Now go pick out your swimsuit of the summer at add a swimbra to your order!  Remember, whether you’re plus size or not, fullbeauty is stocked with beautiful lingerie styles in bra sizes 32-58, cup sizes A-N!

One winner will win The Swim Bra in their choice of size and color!

Are we all in agreement and utter relief that SPRING IS FINALLY HERE?!  Glory, its been a long winter.  There are way too many exciting things to do outside in Boston to stay cooped up inside for that long.  The first gloriously beautiful day around here was two weeks ago.  73 degrees outside, and we were all under lock-down while the manhunt ensued for the Boston Marathon bombers.  We were all bouncing off the walls at home, dying to bask in the new season that finally decided to show up.logo

Something about spring makes me feel like shopping!  Its much more fun to get new shorts, new sandals, and new sundresses instead of pulling out last year’s boxes and shaking out last year’s trends.  I’m excited to show you a few of the flowery Spring/Summer dresses from 24/7 Frenzy and hopefully instill in you the same Spring-shopping feelings that I’m getting!

24-7 Frenzy is a fun shop of all sorts of clothes, from dresses, tops, skirts and pants, to even hosiery and sleepwear.  I myself picked out a pair of gray sweatpants, since honestly, sweatpants are what I’m wearing 50% of my waking hours, I figure they might has well be cute.  Don’t tell my husband I actually don’t get dressed till well after noon most days.  My favorite features on these pants, and what makes them a cut above others, are the piping that goes down the front seams, the strong waistband, and especially the zippered side pockets.  I feel a little more sporty and a little less grunge when I wear these around the house 🙂
