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!

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:
