Review and Giveaway~ Southern Belle Boutique

So, you know when your watching an awesome award show, like the Emmy Awards, and someone mentions the swag gift bags that all the stars get to take home with them? Have you ever wondered what's in them? 
 Just so happens that Rocksann from The Southern Belle Boutique knows a little about that because her business was chosen to participate in the 39th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards gift bags this year!!
 AND, she sent me something fabulous from her shop as well. Just so I could feel famous and all.
Southern Belle Boutique is full of great personalized gift ideas. This is now my go to for all wedding and birthday gifts.
The long list of items include personalized Cell Phone cases,

 iPad cases,
Luggage tags, Cutting boards, wine sleeves....the list goes on and on. But what caught my eye from the get go is their personalized Melamine Platters.

You design every step yourself.

From the huge list of prints, to the colors used to the style of font.

I LOVE this company!
You will not be disappointed.

I choose a  Chevron pattern in Jade and the frame in Custard to match my kitchen. (My hubby likes that it could also pass for the Oregon Ducks logo and that makes him very happy.) I have used mine twice already at friends houses and I have only had it for a few days.

And because she is so awesome, Rocksann is giving a Personalized Platter away to one of my lucky readers. I KNOW!

Here's the deal.
 To enter just head on over to Southern Belle Boutique and take a look around. Come back and in a comment tell me which pattern you would choose if you won. (Good luck not spending all morning deciding)

Review~Lily & Thistle

Another fun review for you all today.
Back in December an amazing company named Lily and Thistle sent me a fantastic package for my youngest daughter.
 I got to create a doll online before hand that looks just like her, every detail. 
 I was so impressed when I got the package because the kit came with the Personalized MiniMe doll and name stand, 6 adorable outfits, a reusable adhesive strip, a special "Keepsake Doll Set" that is signed and dated by the artist Hannah Stevenson, PDF files with custom doll, outfits, and "All About Me" pages for reprinting. And can I just say I die over the outfits she creates. I would wear them myself.

The PDF files are genius! I love this idea because when your kids wear out the paper dolls, you can just get on your computer and print them out again. This has been such a fun quiet time activity my daughter and I have done together. Sweet, modest and classic paper dolls.

They even have a dress of the month club that sends a new outfit straight to your email on the first of the month. Lily and Thistle...Awesome!!

Review~ Stop Staring

Let's just jump right in, shall we?

I have a new favorite dress.

I was sent the Ashley dress by a sexy little company called Stop Staring.


This dress is amazing in so many ways. First is that you feel like a million bucks because it is made out of a beautiful and comfortable millennium stretch fabric that hugs your body in all the right places. It is their #1 selling fabric, because of its comfort, and versatility for day and evening.

If you need a dress that can be worn on any occasion, to any event, in the day and right on into the evening, this is it. I have mixed and matched belts, sweaters, and bold jewelry with this dress and made it different every time.

Stop Staring has so many sexy little dresses you have to check out their site.

And just so you won't be turned off by my lack of modeling skills, here is a better pic of a much cuter figure in the same dress...Ashlee Green.


Primary Theme for 2012

Hope you all had a great Holiday season and a lovely New Year!

I have been enjoying my family and friends and figured I just might need to get back to work now. I am up to my elbows in orders and will actually be tied up for the next few weeks with my BIGGEST order ever! :)

My inbox is going crazy over the fact that the LDS Primary Theme for 2012 is Choose The Right!

And my CTR capes are a perfect fit for a prop, object lesson, or a gift for this year.

Give me a few days to get organized and I have some great reviews ready for ya to check out.

Thanks so much to all my bloggy friends. I hope this year brings you health and happiness.

Review~ Growing Tree Toys

With 4 kiddos and Christmas just around the corner I am on the look out for fun inexpensive gift ideas. Luckily me, Blogtricity hooked me up with the greatest site called Growing Tree Toys.

This site is gathering place for all the fun, creative, and age appropriate gifts for kids.

Seriously amazing selection.

Growing Tree Toys sent me the Kid Concoctions Magic Bubble Art Kit to test out with my kids and we LOVED it. We made a whole night out of it.

This kit kept us busy the whole time. My kids enjoyed pouring the color drops into the mixing cups and getting to blow crazy colorful bubbles. And of course we had fun trying to create different pieces of artwork from these colorful bubbles. This kit also comes with 90 stickers and punch outs and multiple items that help create more than 16 bubble themed projects.

Super fun! The best part is that it is easy enough for my 4 year old and exciting enough for my 6 and 8 year old.

We all had fun and enjoyed the Kid Concoctions Magic Bubble Art Kit , great gift idea!

Review and Giveaway~ A Green Stitch


18 more days till Halloween!

Have you been watching Hocus Pocus every stinkin' day like me?

My kids are so excited and costumes are in the works. Sadly, my kids elementary will not let them wear their Halloween costumes to school so every year I look for cute themed clothes they can wear instead.

I stumbled upon a shop called A Green Stitch and found a jackpot of personalized Holiday and fun themed clothing. The best part... she is a stay at home mom who has a fantastic talent making one of a kind, personalized items for you and your family. I love supporting mommies.

Amazing quality! I was sent this adorable shirt for my daughter and it is fantastic. Every time she has worn it out I have an inner struggle with myself deciding if I dare answer YES to everyone's- "Oh my gosh, did you make that?" comments.

I say NO, I really do.

A Green Stitch is full of so many cute Holiday things, but that isn't all. You have to go take a look.

Here are some of my fav's.

For the boy's out there (p.s. I so would love to see my dad in this shirt with his name, hehe)

The girls:

And for summertime:

This store is perfect for so many occasions. Birthday's, family pictures, milestones, ect.

Today I have in my hot little hand TWO 50% off coupons! Her prices are already fabulous but to add 50% off to your order... wow!


I'm making it easy again.

To enter just visit A Green Stitch and comment back on what you love in her shop.

Then if you want, you can let me know if you follow The Dress-up Drawer (separate comment)

and what your favorite Halloween movie is (separate comment).

That's 3 separate ways to enter. Good luck, winner will be announced on Wednesday the 19th.

Review and Giveaway~ Splasheroo


It's finally Fall, yay!

Halloween is just weeks away are you ready? Pumpkins ready to out on the porch?

I have been so excited for this season and ya wanna see what pushed me over the edge into full on Halloween mode...

A sweet little shop called Splasheroo sent me this outfit for my daughter: Can you even stand it!!?

As soon as I pulled it out of the packaging I was playing dress up with my daughter Macie.

She might be wearing this every day for the next 3 weeks.

Splasheroo not only makes their clothing with top notch quality but every thing in their shop is adorable and trendy.

I am in love with these ruffle leggings and think that I'm gonna have to get a handful more. They are stretchy and comfy and just flat out cute.

My daughters favorite part is the skirt and how it is "twirly". The tulle gives it that extra poof and it's nice thick elastic band will grow with her and allow her to wear it for a long time.

I am just so impressed with the stitching and detail. This outfit is the cutest thing and there are so many other adorable items in this shop you have to see.



Today Splasheroo wants to give a lucky someone a $25.00 credit to their shop!


Here's how to enter:

For one entry, head on over to Splasheroo and take a look around. Come back and in a comment let me know what you would get if you won.

Want more entries? Just leave me comments letting me know:

-If you follow The Dress-up Drawer (one entree)

- What your kids are gonna be for Halloween this year (one entree)

That's a total of 3 ways to enter! I know your know someone who needs some ruffle leggings.

See you back here on Wednesday the 5th with the winner.


Review~ Jo Totes

I'd like to give Jo Totes a big, fat, digital kiss! Yep, right on their face.

If you don't know about Jo Totes then please sit back and take a look at these

A-maz-ing camera bags:


Ummm....yes please. One in every color.

I first heard about Jo Totes 2 years ago when I was looking all over for a nice padded camera bag for my Cannon that wasn't embarrassing to wear.

At first I looked everywhere in my town for one and found a whole lota nothin'. When I turned to looking online Jo Totes was the absolute front runner.

I love how cute these bags are. I knew I would be proud to pack my camera into one of these adorable bags and wear it everywhere I went.

And because Jo Totes wants to digitally kiss me right back they sent me their Brand New Betsy tote in my fav. color...mustard!

I have to say that I am just a Mom-tog. I am no where near a professional. But that's the best part about this bag, you don't have to be. I can be the crazy picture taking mom at the zoo, keeping my camera, lenses and all my extras safe and packed up tight and no one would be the wiser.

This Betsy bag has so much room and comes with multiple straps for different ways to wear it. The Velcro dividers are easily switched out to fit any camera or bulky accessory as well as large pockets for my keys and smaller items.

If your like me and love great bags, even ones for your camera, you have to check out Jo Totes.

Oh, and if you want to win one I will be giving one away in a few weeks over on Leelou. You do not want to miss it.


We have a winner! Congrats to:

Review and Giveaway~ Simply Livly


Hello all you lovely's!!

Summer is winding down and kids are back in school which has given me some extra time to myself. Because of this I finally allowed myself to become a total Pinterest junkie!!

I am drooling over all the fashion and great outfit ensembles....which I have noticed usually all include a bold necklace as a statement piece.

I thought to myself, I need more statement!

More WOW and pieces that POP!

I have a shop for ya that does ALL of this. Simply Livly is the cutest shop who's jewelry collection includes a mix of modern and classic pieces, all versatile enough to wear with just about anything.

And my favorite part is that they are SO comfortable and easy to wear! The necklaces are made of 100% organic cotton jersey knit and they have such amazing beads of all sizes and colors.

The necklace that Simply Livly sent to me is one of my favorite necklaces I own now! It's this red wooden bib necklace below.

It looks so awesome with jeans and a T-shirt, and then I throw it on with a silk shirt and a blazer for a night out. I really do love it. I love the color scheme with the red and grey and I love how light it is when it's on. I never have to re-adjust like I would with a chain and a clasp.

Simply Livly has offered up their best seller today for one lucky reader. Yep, I am wishing I could enter myself right about now...cause it is this one:

The Turquoise and Cream Bib necklace. Love this color!!

Here's how to enter:
