Zoey's Attic Personalized Gifts *Holiday Gift Guide*

Please note, this is not a sponsored review/post. 
I simply love the company and wanted to share


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!


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! 


Even though I purchased this shirt from Zoey's Attic, I'm sharing with you because I love the company, what Erin stands for, and her business that she loves deeply. I first found Erin and her company on Etsy in January 2012. I was soon to be expecting our third little girl and I fell in love with a sibling set she offered with a cupcake theme. I posted that review in March 2012, and that started our journey of expanding our closets and hearts to Zoey's Attic.

Even though BigTimeTeez.com was the second spotlight for our Holiday Gift Guide, we happened to be working together again, but this time it's for true Christmas items since we're fast approaching the holiday.  

This time I got a "You'll Shoot Yer Eye Out Kid!" shirt because I remember watching the movie as a kid, and then I got a "This Girl Loves Christmas" shirt for our two older girls to share.

Isotoner Slippers and Gloves Review *Holiday Gift Guide*

Thanks to Isotoner 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!

isotoner's story begins in 1910 with the founding of the Aris Glove Company, a European maker of fine leather gloves and knit accessories. After making its way to the United States, Aris would create the glove that would become its namesake and an icon would be born. 

In the early 1970s, Aris created a glove unlike any other made from a nylon/spandex fabric with leather trim. Recognizing the glove's unique 4-way stretch and massaging properties, Aris named the glove isotoner by combining the words "isometric" and "toning." The isotoner glove was a major success with a name so recognizable that Aris adopted it and became ARIS isotoner, Inc. Following the success of isotoner women's gloves, isotoner men's gloves and slippers quickly followed. 


As cold weather approaches, so does the need to keep our hands and feet warm. I'm always wanting new slippers because of wear and tear, so when Isotoner contacted me for a review, I was thrilled. We received Hoodback Slippers, Clog Slippers, and SmarTouch Gloves to review. 

Surpahs Digital Bathroom Scale Review

Thanks to Surpahs for the scale to help post this review


Surpahs makes great kitchen scales, bathroom scales and kitchenware products. We are a private held company operated by the great Internet sense team players. Surpahs, synonyms of Surpass, meaning to be beyond the limit, powers, excellence, be superior to in achievement, so is our commitment.


A while ago I was contacted to work with Surpahs and was given a variety of scales to choose from for review. I found the above pink digital bathroom scale and fell in love with it. Not only is is pink (my favorite color), but it remembers up to four people and goes well beyond the weight limit we would need for my husband or I.

Getting Nailed! Week 17 *Jamberry*

Thanks to Lindsey Galvez for the Jamberry sheets! 


Welcome to Week 16 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.

Made in the USA, our nail wraps offer peace of mind with no odors, no chemicals and no animal testing. The startling diversity of our 300+ designs keeps things fresh for stylish ladies of all ages and tastes. For those who love the confidence that comes from having manicured hands, Jamberry Nails offers a professional salon look without the high cost or hassle.


I took Lindsey's 10 day challenge, to see how Jamberry Nail Wraps hold up against polish. I decided to go with ICY PINK POLKA because of the metallic polka dots, and my love of pink. While my nail polish didn't match quite as much as I'd hoped, I thought it looked pretty well together. 

My Pakage: Underwear for Men Review *Holiday Gift Guide*

Big thanks to My Pakage 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!


The story of MyPakage started out as a business philosophy, a brand that would change the game. We set a new benchmark and made the best underwear on the planet for men. We took the most advanced fabric technology and construction techniques available and built underwear that is unrivalled for fit, comfort, support and style. We changed the way men think – and talk – about underwear.


My husband has always been a boxer man. After claiming regular underwear are too tight, I was interested in him trying My Pakage because of the keyhold comfort pouch. Being a tow truck/semi driver, he can be gone for 8-16 hours in one day, so I wanted to see if these underwear would be more comfortable for him on his long work days.

SURGE Energy Shots Review/Giveaway! Ends 12/10

Thanks Body Glove for the shots for this review.

Body Glove Surge

Twin brothers Bill and Bob Meistrell created a company on a dream of a life in the water. Over sixty years later, the Meistrell family continues this dream by setting standards of excellence in product design, a respect for the world around them and deep rooted values in the watersports world, all while having a complete understanding of the needs and style of today’s water enthusiasts around the world. Diving and Surfing are at the root of our company. On a lake, river, ocean, or pool, the Body Glove lifestyle is what water lovers aspire to achieve. With over 75% of the planet being covered with water, Body Glove wants to be there for every water experience. Authentic innovation in all watersports products is the model for Body Glove’s continued success.


Body Glove SURGE is a groundbreaking energy product available as a shot. Body Glove SURGE is the first proven all‐natural energy shot that provides instant and long‐lasting energy and the added power of protein, green tea and natural antioxidants. Consumed before and during exercise, university studies show that Body Glove SURGE extends endurance and improves reaction time. However, Body Glove SURGE is more than just a performance breakthrough. Proven more effective than the leading energy shot, Body Glove SURGE reduces fatigue, increases alertness and enhances mental concentration.

We now know that optimal improvements in exercise performance are seen when caffeine is consumed with carbohydrate. Think of caffeine as a catalyst. Although it has a mild effect on exercise performance when consumed by itself, it can have a very significant effect when consumed in conjunction with protein and carbohydrate. The reason is that caffeine is not a source of energy, it does not provide the fuel your brain and muscles need to work optimally. What caffeine can do is enable your muscles and brain to use energy more efficiently, as much as 35%. This turbo charging of the energy process translates into extended endurance and overall improvements in sports performance.

FabKids November 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.'


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. For November I chose the look above for Madison because it just screamed her personality when I saw it. I fell in love with this dress immediately and since it has tights with it, I knew Madison would still be warm while at the bus stop in this dress. Last month we reviewed a shirt & jeans set, and it's still a a favorite for her to wear, but she loves dresses and was excited for this month's outfit just as much as I was.
