We're taking 2015 Holiday Gift Guide Submissions!


Can you believe it's the holiday season again?!
 Here at Mama's Baby Cupcakes, we're officially opening our Holiday Gift Guide and submissions are welcome!

If you're a company that would like to be featured, please email us with what you have in mind and we'll reply within 48 hours. All items must have a value of $25 or more, or you send several to accommodate pricing. 

Since I have four little girls ranging from almost 8yrs to almost 2yrs old, I offer a wide variety in age ranges for children, as well as myself, my husband, and our pets. 

Lakeon has a little girl who is 6yrs old and a little boy who is 2, so this also helps when it comes to clothing or other little boy items. 

Items that qualify for a feature can range from stocking stuffers and up. If it would make a great holiday gift, we're open to suggestions. 

Depending on our level of submissions and our pending schedule, we always ask that we're given 4-6 weeks to make the post live, but it could post well before that. We list our items in order that they're received, so that ultimately is how we choose what to post and when. 

We do not pay for shipping, pay for items at discounts rates, and we do not send items back. Your shipment is our "payment" for our time of using items, taking photos, and writing each review. 


Email today if you think you'd be a great fit!
We're always open to suggestions and look forward to hearing from you soon! 




Talkin' Tattoos Tuesday: Week 103


Welcome to week 103 of Talkin' Tattoos Tuesday! I did an intro post where I explained my goal in posting these every week and how you can submit your photo to be featured. Check out the post if you need to refresh your memory. Since I've went through all my tattoos, now I'll be sharing photos I've found online, and the occasional viewer submission when they come in.

Potty Training Tips and Tricks with Pull Ups & Family Dollar

Having four children and potty trained two so far, I think I've learned pros and cons about potty training a toddler. With our first child I could see things that I never wanted to do again, so with our second daughter it went much more smoothly in her success. Now we're on to our third child who is three years old, and while she's being a little stubborn about the process, I wanted to share some tips and tricks to push our children along the way when it comes to being fully potty trained.


I feel as though you get what you pay for, and this is why I prefer to use Pull-Ups with my children. Pull-Ups training pants have unique patterns that fade when wet to help your child learn to stay dry, and the easy-open sides make it easy to for possible accidents. Since they’re stretchy it also allows children to feel like they're being a big kid because they can slide on and off with ease. New Disney designs feature Doc McStuffins, Ariel, Jake and the Never Land Pirates,Lightning McQueen, Sophia the First and more. Characters are an important part of the training process because your children see their favorite characters, similar to the joy of picking out their first big kid undies later down the line.

Little Toader Teethers

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

Little Toader’s first line of products, AppeTEETHERS, were created based on a need they saw in the marketplace for safe, effective teething toys that weren’t so boring. They knew they wanted them to be safe, and highly effective in bringing relief to sore gums, but really wanted them to stand out.


While I have no little babies running around my home anymore, my best friend had her first child, a little boy, last December. I wanted to work with Little Toader when Mya was a baby but it didn't work out, so I was thrilled when I had the chance to let my bestie try their products with Trip. I linked three favorite teethers and Angelina was ultimately sent the chompin' chicken wing and baconease.

Crochet Crafting Kits From Thunder Bay Books Review

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


Thunder Bay Press has been publishing large coffee table–style reference books for more than 20 years. Ideal for gift giving, there is something for everyone with books on arts, crafts, pets, cooking, travel, culture, religion, transportation, and nature. More recently, Thunder Bay began releasing an impressive array of fun, interactive titles on such subjects as origami, art studio, crochet, cooking, and crafts.


This spring, Thunder Bay Press expands its line of crochet titles, which launched in 2013 with Wizard of Oz Crochet, to three popular franchises: Peanuts Crochet, Star Wars Crochet, and Disney Classic Crochet.

Talkin' Tattoos Tuesday: Week 102


Welcome to week 102 of Talkin' Tattoos Tuesday! I did an intro post where I explained my goal in posting these every week and how you can submit your photo to be featured. Check out the post if you need to refresh your memory. Since I've went through all my tattoos, now I'll be sharing photos I've found online, and the occasional viewer submission when they come in.


This is secretly how I feel on the inside! I have gaged ears, tried with a septum piercing, and have plans to cover an upper arm hopefully next year. All of this doesn't make me a bad parent, it just makes me look true to myself and that's what I want my girls to learn most. We're all different, but we're all amazing in our own ways. Your outside doesn't reflect your inside, and everyone is beautiful.
