BigtimeTeez.com Review *Holiday Gift Guide*

Thanks to Big Time Teez for the shirts to help post this review


As we approach the upcoming Holiday season, Mama's Baby Cupcakes has teamed up with several companies we think would be a great fit to purchase/wear/give to others in the upcoming months.

BigtimeTeez.com Your #1 Online Source For Funny and Cool Graphic T-Shirts up to size 5XL! We have that hard to find T-Shirt for Men, Women and Kids you've been looking for.


I discovered BigtimeTeez.com a while ago while looking on a blog. I thought their shirts were so cute and funny, but when I discovered the "Word's Greatest Dad" and "World's Greatest Mom" shirts, I knew we just had to have them! We love our kids, and I love wearing funny shirts to show our parent side, so these were right up our alley. Granted we've both agreed we'd only wear them when out with our kids, we never go anywhere with out them, so I was thrilled when they agreed to a review of both shirts for us.

Living Proof Hair Care Review Pt.1 #MC #Sponsored

“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Living Proof. I received product samples to facilitate my review and to thank me for my participation.”


As a mother of four children, my hair doesn't do much. I do color my hair, but it's often in a pony tail, and before I recently cut off about 8", it was always in a side braid. After a bad hair color, I cut a lot of the hair off the get rid of the dye, and I'm now left with shorter than I'd like frizzy, wavy hair. In hopes of growing my hair back out, I've taken the Living Proof challenge to help restore my hair, it's beauty, and help it recover from all it's been put through. 

My hair has always been thick with a slight wave, and it's something I've dealt with since I was little. On top of this, I have dandruff problems like most of my family, and my hair gets oily easily, so I've always wanted to find the perfect product to help my hair. I've always just washed my hair with shampoo and conditioner and then let it air dry, but recently I switched to help rid of dandruff. While this did help, I hated the thought of being forced to use a product for only part of my problem. 

I'm now on a challenge to use Living Proof Hair Care for two months in efforts to better my hair, and I'd love if you joined me on this quest! You can visit the site here and enter to win products of your very own, and also shop around at what they offer and purchase your own to start your hair care journey. 


Key Factors Include: 
  • The new PhD (Perfect hair Day) line which includes a shampoo, conditioner, and 5-in-1 Styling Treatment all treat and styles your hair to deliver smoothness, volume, conditioning, strength, and polish all in one set.
  • The PhD shampoo and conditioner are a routine changing duo that keeps hair cleaner, longer reducing the need to wash your hair as often. These are sulfate-free, oil-free and silicone-free.
  • After using the PhD shampoo and conditioner, apply 5-in-1 Styling Treatment to damp hair and blow dry or air dry to create smoothness, volume, strength, conditioning, and polish as well as heat protection, UV protection, and static control. This is oil-free and silicone-free.
  • For the most volume, blow dry your hair with a round brush to enhance volume and body or blow dry with a flat brush to create a smooth, polished blowout.

Zim's Max Freeze Review & Giveaway! Ends 10/6

 Thank you Zim's for providing the products for this review.

Zim's USA

"The Zim's® brand is dedicated to bringing you innovative naturally-based products that live up to their brand promise in every way. Our goal is to improve the lives of consumers with our brands that include over 25 products that are packed with the best of nature and range from skin care to pain relief gels."

I received Zim's Max-Freeze Gel and Max-Freeze Continuous Spray for a review. Zim’s Max-Freeze is an over-the-counter topical analgesic used for the temporary relief of minor aches and pains of muscles and joints. I usually have muscle pain in my lower back and I was hoping to try these products out in that area. Two weeks later I was involved in a terrible car accident. My daughter and I hydroplaned down a wet hill, slammed into the embankment and the truck flipped several times. My little girl came out with a couple of bumps, bruises, and scratches while I ended up with a fractured collar bone and terribly bruised muscles in my neck, back, shoulders, and along the left side of my body.


I've been using these 2 products for the past few days and they have been amazing! While the pain in my collar bone doesn't completely leave, it helps to dull the pain tremendously in the muscles around my bone. Each product has a strong mint scent when first applying but it eventually fades away. Zim's Max Freeze is all natural and is made with aloe, vitamin E, arnica, and tea tree oil.

Getting Nailed! Week 13


Welcome to Week 13 of Getting Nailed! I did an intro post where I explained my goal in posting these every other week and how you can submit your photo to be featured. Check out the post if you need to refresh your memory. I'll be sharing photos of my own nails as I get them done every two weeks, photos of neat ideas I've found online, and the occasional viewer submission when they come in.

I've had acrylic nails for about 8 months, so while my nails take a small breather (until October) I thought I'd share some fun little info type pictures the next couple weeks. ENJOY!

FabKids September Box Review

Thanks to Fab Kids for the outfit to help with this review


FabKids was founded to empower boys and girls to express their individuality through personalized outfits while revolutionizing the shopping experience for moms and dads by delivering high-quality, reasonably priced, fresh style in just ‘one-click.’


Fall is fast approaching here in Indiana, and with that comes the task of purchasing better suited clothes for the new weather. While we have four children and can pass down clothing as the girls' age, our oldest daughter Madison is always in need of clothes as she ages. I was so happy to work with FabKids because the thought of a full outfit for $30, shipped right to your door once a month was so appealing to me. After signing up and looking around on their website, I decided to contact them in hopes of a review before deciding to purchase this subscription every month for our girls. For September I chose the look below for Madison, our bubbly (almost) 7 year old.
