LittleMissMatched Kids Clothing Review *Holiday Gift Guide*

Thanks to LittleMissMatched for the PJ's to help post the 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. Thanks to each and every sponsor showcased in our Holiday Gift Guide, and if you see the cute button above then you know its Holiday approved!


LittleMissMatched is a lifestyle brand that inspires girls of all ages to express their individuality and creativity through fashion. With seven national stores, including two Disney locations, LittleMissMatched has become the go-to store for funky, mismatched socks that are fun for all ages! Tweens and girls also love our bold girls clothing line and beauty collection, hair and jewelry accessories, colorful bedding, awesome backpacks for girls, handbags and girls shoes.


Since we have our girls in our home, I find that mainly purchasing for our oldest is the best way to go. I take care of the girls' clothes so that they can be passed down as they size out, but since Madison is our oldest, she needs everything. Now don't get me wrong, all our girls get new clothes here and there, but for this review I chose the Hi Bye Leopard PJ Set for review. 


I chose size 6 for Madison because even though she just turned 7yrs old, she's 47" tall and 49lbs. She's petite with long legs, but I knew the length of the pants wouldn't be an issue. In their photo online it shows what appears to be a draw string, so I figured even if they were too big in the waist, they could be tightened and we'd be fine.

JC Toys: Real Boy Doll Review *Holiday Gift Guide*

Thanks to JC Toys for the doll to help with 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. Thanks to each and every sponsor showcased in our Holiday Gift Guide, and if you see the cute button above then you know its Holiday approved!
Established in 1993, JC Toys is a family run and operated business that has continued to grow its product line to include many doll categories. Each doll and doll accessory is carefully designed to ensure that the end user is 100% happy. Our goal is to make all of our dolls loveable and to ensure that everyone, from a first time baby doll mommy to the most demanding doll collector are completely overjoyed with our quality and superior design.


"At JC Toys, we’re proud to offer a large selection of real life baby dolls children of all ages will love! If you’ve been looking for a baby doll that has all the wrinkles and rolls of a real baby, this is the place for you! The baby dolls we make resemble babies of many different sizes, shapes and ethnicities. Newborn baby dolls are the perfect size and weight, which not only makes the doll look and feel real but also makes it easy for little arms to hug and hold."

If you're looking for a realistic bath time baby doll, this charming La Newborn doll should fit the bill nicely! With its wonderfully sculpted face, this cute little baby couldn't be more lifelike. He is a 17" All Vinyl anatomically correct Real Boy! Doll. He comes with a lovely rubber-ducky themed bath towel with a built-in hood, and your children will have a blast using this towel to dry and wrap their sweet baby. The best part of all is that this little doll looks incredibly real.

These all-vinyl dolls are anatomically accurate, which means he has actual boy parts. I was a little bit afraid of this since my daughter would be playing with the doll, but after receiving it and taking a peek, I was very relieved that it's not obscene. All of the right shapes are there but there's nothing "movable" and it's not frightening. I'm sure my daughter won't pay much mind to it. She has a baby brother so she knows boys and girls are different.

This little guy isn't very heavy and he has a hollow belly which can be pressed in. His legs and arms move up and down and heads that turn side to side. There's a slight bend at his elbows and knees that resemble the way that newborn's would hold them. I would imagine that dressing this doll would be difficult because his arms are in a perpetual bend.

I'm completely amazed at how life-like this baby doll looks. Not only does his eyes have the same depth as human eyes, he has rolls all over his body just like a newborn would, and he's about the same size as a newborn. He has the cutest little expression on his face and his tiny toes and fingers have incredible detail.

The ducky towel only adds to the cuteness. Inside is a soft fleece while the outside has the material of a soft baby towel. He even has the sweetest little yellow diaper to match his ducky towel. Can you tell I'm absolutely in love with this doll?

Bags of Sugar Giveaway! Ends 11/3


Any of us who are parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles or babysitters know that babies kick off blankets right? They never seem to keep them on. So when I came across Bags of Sugar I thought, GENIUS!!! And it truly is. 

It's like a sack, but doesn't go over the shoulders at all. It is just a sack that goes over the baby and then has elastic to keep the blanket tight on their chest. 

NEVER use it on your child to sleep unattended and NEVER use it in a car seat!

They also offer free US/CAN shipping! And they are fully machine washable!

NeoCell Facial Products Review *Holiday Gift Guide*

Thanks to NeoCell for the items to help with 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. Thanks to each and every sponsor showcased in our Holiday Gift Guide, and if you see the cute button above then you know its Holiday approved!

Since I was little I've such dry patchy skin on my face. Growing up and starting to wear make up, my face would always have little flakes of skin everywhere from rubbing foundation on it and it's something I've never been able to control. I've never found anything to take this away, so after Lakeon reviewed with NeoCell and her positive review, I decided to give it a try with some facial products to see if I could help over power my face battle! 


I really wanted to find a Masque to help treat my skin, and really give it some love, so I was happy when I found the Collagen Moisturizing Treatment Masque. I chose the Alpha Cell Exfoliator figuring it would also help combat my skin and rid it of layers of dead skin freeing my face from the flaky demons that lived upon it, and I figured some Beauty Bursts wouldn't hurt to try for hydration. 

Lalaloopsy Babies Diaper Surprise Review *Holiday Gift Guide*

Big thanks to MGA Entertainment for this product to 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. Thanks to each and every sponsor showcased in our Holiday Gift Guide, and if you see the cute button above then you know its Holiday approved!

Lalaloopsy were once rag dolls that magically came to life when their very last stitch was sewn. Each doll has its own charming personality inspired by the fabric used to make it. Lalaloopsy live in a whimsical world full of silly surprises. With love and a little bit of imagination, you’ll see why Lalaloopsy are sew magical... and sew cute!


Our girls love Lalaloopsy. Our oldest even had a birthday theme around it before their party kits came out. While we have some dolls and other accessories, I hadn't heard about this new baby doll they offered until the opportunity came to review it. Since Macyn will be three in February, she's at the age of loving baby dolls, pushing them in strollers, and feeding them, so I knew this would be the perfect gift for her to add to her doll collection! We received Peanut Big Top for review.


I'll say right off that this toy is recommended for ages 4 and up. I'm sure this is because the charms you collect since they can easily get put in the mouth of a child and cause a choking hazard, but Macyn hasn't really ever put things in her mouth besides as a baby so I knew she would be ok with this toy.

Getting Nailed! Week 15


Welcome to Week 15 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, I thought I'd share some fun little info type pictures the next couple weeks. ENJOY!
