Off To School We Go with Alley+Rae

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


Alley+Rae Apparel is a modern lifestyle brand handmade in Utah. Our mission is to spread positivity and create clothing that speaks to you. We want each piece to make a statement or tell a story about the person that wears it. We love to incorporate bright colors, fun graphics and encouraging messages into our designs.


Alley+Rae has amazing clothes, so I knew with school starting again, I wanted to add some shirts to our list of back to school clothing options! Whether a child or adult, we like to stand out and show our personalities, so I thought getting them more unique shirts would do just that!

Off To School We Go with Zoey's Attic

Thank you Zoey's Attic for the shirt to help with this review


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! 


Since our oldest daughter started Kindergarten, we've had the tradition of using Zoey's Attic shirts on their first day of school. Along with school shirts, we've worked with and purchased from Zoey's Attic since early 2012 with the birth of our third daughter. I just can't get enough of this company, and I'll tell you why below with this new review!

Off To School We Go with LittleMissMatched

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


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.


I reviewed with LittleMissMatched for the first time last Fall. I wrote about a set of PJs they had, and I knew I wanted to come back to them for school items. While I was hoping for an outfit of my choosing, I was sent this backpack and pencil case for review, both available directly from their website. 

Off To School We Go! with I see Me

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


I See Me! publishes very high quality personalized children’s books that build self-esteem by celebrating the uniqueness of each child.


One thing kids look forward to with school is a new lunch box! There's so many varieties in stores, but why not get something more unique and personalized for your child?! That's where I See Me! comes in with another great set of products like you see above.

Bonding with Baby: The Formula for Happiness™


  As a mother of four, I'd like to think that I may just know a thing or two about babies. While all babies are different, it seems like most of my tricks work for all our girls and I wanted to write this post to share some bits of knowledge from one mom to another in hopes that I can help if possible!


My girls range in age from 1 1/2- 7 1/2 years old, so over time I've gotten used to the fussiness, late nights, much needed cuddles, and draining periods of not being able to leave baby's side. Below I'll share my own tricks and ways I got my girls to be calm and happy, so I hope you enjoy because the formula to happiness is a happy healthy baby!
