FabKids April 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.'

For the April FabKids review, I chose the above Striped Skater Dress and leggings combo. I love all the stripes and bright colors with this dress, and the leggings are a nice touch for the up and down weather we're having this month. I also got to choose a pair of shoes for the first time, and was really excited to feature another line of great FabKids products.

Celebrating the Father/Daughter Ball with Sophia's Style

Initially popular for our enormous selection of personalized birthday dresses, flower girl dresses and pageant dresses, Sophia's Style Boutique has grown rapidly into the best one-stop shop for all kinds of fun, whimsical girls clothing, boys clothing, baby clothes, and now maternity clothing as well! You can find children's designer clothes, shoes and hair accessories at affordable prices, perfect for the family that wants to look great without spending a fortune.

Every year our elementary school hosts a Father/Daughter ball. Last year was the first time for this occasion, and now with two children in school, we get to have twice the fun! When I saw these dresses on the Sophia's Style website, I fell in love with them and immediately contacted them for a possible review.

A Baby Shower Giveaway Event! Over $1200 in prizes

They say April showers bring May flowers... Well, our April shower is going to shower one lucky mom with over $1200 in prizes! We've brought together several AMAZING sponsors to offer one HUGE prize package which includes the following below. I'm so excited to be able to share this with you, my readers, and good luck to all of you that choose to enter! This is an awesome package! 

BabyBjorn: This Swedish, family-owned business started in 1961 and their goal has remained the same: to make day-to-day life easier for parents of small children by developing safe and innovative products of the highest quality for children up to three years old. Their wide assortment of products consists of baby carriers, bouncers, travel cribs, cradles, potty chairs, high chairs and kitchen products. You may be familiar with BabyBjorn's iconic line of baby carriers, but if you don't know about their Travel Crib Light, you're definitely missing out! This is truly one of Thrifty Nifty Mommy and Viva Veltoro's favorite pieces of baby gear - and they've tested a lot of products! The Travel Crib Light can be used with children from 0-3 years of age and is easy to set up in one simple movement. Just open the bag, lift out the crib and the legs fold out. Once you place the soft and comfy mattress inside you have a stable travel crib to use at home or on trips. There are no loose parts or tricky buttons to find. Weighing in at only 13 pounds, it's so easy to take with you, especially thanks to it's included travel bag.

Thanks to KattyMarket for the items to help with this review

KattyMarket is an online Etsy shop that makes and sells teething necklaces and nursing toys. When they contacted me for a potential review, I immediately thought of my friend Angelina and her adorable son "Trip". As a first time mother that values items to help sooth mom and baby while nursing and teething, I knew she'd love this shop. I was happy when she said yes and requested the set you see above, which is a necklace and bracelet set.

Robeez Kids Shoes for Spring

Thanks to Robeez for the shoes to help with the review

Robeez footwear mimics bare feet by flexing and bending with every step. Supporting not constricting growing feet, they promote good balance and unrestricted growth, while protecting little feet from the world.

When Robeez approached me and asked if I'd like to feature them for their Spring Collection, I fell in love with these Sunshine shoes. I love the white lace, dainty look they have, and how fabulous they could go with anything Mya would be wearing in a day. I was sent them for review and asked for a 18-24 months thinking they'd fit perfectly with some room to grow.

SoCozy Hair Products For Kids

Thanks to SoCozy for the two products to help review

Author and beauty veteran Cozy Friedman first opened Cozy’s Cuts For Kids, a premiere children’s hair salon aimed at redefining the entire children’s haircut experience, in 1992. Now, 20 years and multiple salons later, Friedman introduces SoCozy salon formulas for kids - the first ever premium line of hair care products made with the finest ingredients gentle enough for kids. Offering non-toxic products with no parabens, sulfates, phthalates, synthetic color, propylene glycol and free of gluten, wheat and nuts that perform at a salon level with packaging that appeals to kids and parents alike.

Having four little girls with different hair types is hard on me. I'm not super girly and I don't know how to do many things with hair, but one thing my girls got from me is super tangly unmanageable at times hair. Ever since I can remember my hair has been frizzy, tangled, and always in my way. Our oldest daughter especially has my hair type and I was excited when So Cozy pitched me to review and I requested two products from all you see above.
