Sara Lee Snacks: Peanut Butter Crème Filled Cakes

I received samples for review purposes. All opinions are mine. 

Sara Lee Snack Cakes are a delicious line of individually wrapped snack cakes that come with our baked fresh to go promise. They’re easy to pack, convenient to carry and come in an ever-growing variety of snack types and flavors. Our line currently consists of Devil’s Food Crème Cakes, Golden Fudge Cakes, Chocolate Crème Cupcakes, Golden Crème Cakes, Buttery Sunshine Cakes, Crumb Cakes and Cheese Topped Crumb Cakes. 


I am a girl who loves sweets! Whether it's after a nice meal, a bad day, or even a good day, we almost always have something sweet in our pantry. I was thrilled when we got the chance to work Sara Lee and try out their Peanut Butter Creme Cakes. Not only is it nice smooth chocolate, but with a hint of peanut butter, it offers two sweet but very different flavors.

Lily Nily: Kids Jewelry


Welcome to the Keeping Cool in the Sun Giveaway Hop hosted by Lindsey Blogs and Viva Veltoro. It’s HOT HOT HOT outside, but we’re joining a group of bloggers are are ready to keep you cool in the sun with amazing giveaways all valued at $20 or more. Be sure to hop around to them all and don’t miss the amazing Grand Prize from our hosts!


The Lily Nily Story
In Summer of 2011 brothers Mark and Jay came upon the realization that there was a need for quality fashion jewelry for girls. They conceived of a line of jewelry that little girls would find precious and adorable – and that their parents would find adorable on them. The collection includes bangles, bracelets, pendants, necklaces, and earrings, all adorned with a little bit of just about everything that little girls love.


As a mother to four little girls, I was intrigued when I heard from Lily Nily with a review offer. Our oldest two children are 7 and 8 1/2, and very much at the age of accessories. While our oldest daughter is the definition of a "girly girl" her younger sister can be more on the "tomboy" said, but I found the perfect items for them through Lily Nily and couldn't wait to receive in person!

Zoey's Attic Wall Decals & Monthly Stickers Review

I received products/compensation in exchange for a review. All thoughts/opinions are my own!


Zoey’s Attic officially launched in November 2006 by creator and owner Erin Delanty.  The inspiration for the website came shortly after the birth of their first child. Once they decided to grow their family it was a no brainer to have the store where families could come and get personalized items for children of any age! 

I'm sad I didn't think to take a photo of these together on the anchor background


While I've been quite the supporter of Zoey's Attic for four years now, I've showcased a lot of their clothing on the blog both through reviews and through my own purchases. With the upcoming arrival of Maximus, I was thrilled to branch out and try accessories they offer through their ever growing company.

SleepingBaby.com Children's Products

I received products/compensation in exchange for a review. All thoughts/opinions are my own!


Swaddle Transition! Taking babies from swaddle time to sleep time in no time! Easily transition baby - get the sleep you all deserve. Offering Slumber Sacks/ wearable baby blankets and Fleece Sacks for a variety of ages! 


I found this company SleepingBaby.com through a friend well before we knew if our little bundle was a boy or a girl. I knew either gender, I wanted to do fun anchors as the theme of the nursery and with that in mind, a friend tagged me on their Facebook page because of their adorable Littlest Sailor Zippy OneZ because they offer them in pink AND in blue. I decided to reach out recently in hopes of a review and they said yes, along with a Flying Squirrel PJ set for Mya and a teether for Max once he's older.

Snacking with Toddlers: Gerber Lil' Beanies


With having five children, snacks are always a must around our house! Trying to find things that all of our girls will eat can be a chore with so many different opinons, but recently we got to try out Gerber Lil' Beanies for Mya and I think we've found her 'go to' snack! 


Gerber Lil' Beanies is made from navy beans which are the perfect ingredient for its mild-flavor and since they provide protein, its a wholesome choice for a recipe. They're not made with genetically engineered ingredients, artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. With their smaller size, they're perfect finger food snacks for tiny toddler hands, and provide Protein, Fiber, and Vitamin E.

Liz and Roo Baby Bedding Accessories

I received products/compensation in exchange for a review. All thoughts/opinions are my own!
In 2013, Caroline Eager and Carol Ann Anderson founded Liz and Roo Fine Baby Bedding with a vision for creating a modern, sophisticated made in USA baby line that emphasized safety, quality workmanship, and style. Liz and Roo pulled on Eager’s expertise as the founder of American Made Dorm, a retailer and manufacturer of made in USA dorm bedding. Liz and Roo’s wide assortment of modern crib bedding designs are made by sewing artisans in North Carolina.


When it come to Max's room, I knew before his gender that I wanted to have an anchor theme for the nursery. While anchors are pretty popular right now, I was on the hunt for something to go on the window in his room but I hadn't had any luck until I found Liz and Roo. I fell in love with so many items on their website, but then when I saw their nautical/anchor themed selections, I knew their accessories would match up to my needs perfectly.

LuLaRoe: the Patrick Tee for Men {and Women}

Past review items. All opinions are 100% my own

LuLaRoe is a fashion brand that specializes in women's and girls skirts, dresses and leggings. They also offer different kinds of shirts, kimonos, and more. They have nice solid prints, funky fun patterns, and sweet simple patterns to choose from. You can also get men's shirts and they offer neutral kids clothes that boys and wear!


I love my LuLaRoe, that's obvious if you're a long time follower, but I also wanted a Patrick Tee for Chris! They just came out in March and are similar to an Irma because of the length in the back. I found that appealing for my husband because he is always buying over sized shirts so there's a lot of length because no matter how I wash his shirts, they always shrink in the wash. This is actually a super light blue/grey shade and I got a 2x which is actually a size down from what he normally wears. He loves the feel over all of the shirt mentioning that while he's outside he's very breathable and makes him cool over all. He gets hot quickly so that was a nice surprise for me and it's always funny seeing your husband play around outside with the wind and his shirt LOL. He'd prefer it be a tad wider in the stomach area, but I think a 3x would be too big on him, so he's happy over all with the look and feel of a Patrick Tee. I got mine from LuLaRoe Danielle VIP and I've reviewed/shopped with her since October. Her and her husband are an amazing team, and I hope to score more Patricks in the near future because I love them too!
