Get on board the #LoveTrain2014! (giveaway)

images

I am so excited about this!  NewDayNewDeals and PopStreetKidz are proud to invite you to board the Love Train with us.  Something big is brewing but we need everyone to come together, join hands and make it happen!

This February we hope to bring smiles to the children at St. Judes by showering them with Valentines, letters of encouragement and uplifting words.  We are asking you to help!

First.  Either make or purchase a kid friendly Valentine’s Day card.  Please, no glitter or beads.  Get your children involved!   Feel free to write your message on the card to “My friend at St. Jude”.  You can also send more than one in each envelope or package as these will be opened prior to being distributed to the children.  You can even make one online at sites like Treat.com or Cardstore.com and have it mailed directly to them all for just $3-$5.  You are welcome to send small unopened gifts (i.e. sticker book, doll, etc) but please no food.

Second. Package up your Valentine(s), seal that envelope or box and address it to:

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital ATTN: Vilma / #LoveTrain2014, 595 N. Parkway, Memphis, TN 38105.

Please try to have them mailed by 2/8/2014.

Third. Don’t forget to take a picture of your Valentine or your child(ren) with it.  Post  it to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Lil Stylers or directly on the NewDayNewDeals or Pop Street Kidz Facebook wall.   Make sure to use the hashtag #LoveTrain2014 and encourage your friends to take part!  It would be awesome if you could make that post set to Public.  We are excited to search the hashtag and see all of the pictures!

Easy Peasy.  But we need ALL of you to make it work.  Let’s make sure that no child is left out.  Help us spread the word and please hashtag #LoveTrain2014 on all social media outlets.   Let’s take a sad song and make it better.

Wishing you love,

Sarah Blevins and Shannon Goldberg    (along with Jake, Wynn and Abby too!)

Joann Grace Designs [Code + Giveaway]

Joann Grace Designs by PDS Corporate Sales LLC

I am so excited to run this promo again! Last Fall this discount was extremely popular and I know that we have a TON of happy customers out there!

Last September, Brooke from Joann Grace Designs reached out to me about her Personalized Name Blankets and Towels!  She follows NDND and knows how important first hand experience is with me and she so kindly offered to send Jake a blanket and Abby a towel.  She just knew that I would love them (and 110% do)!  We gave her our info and they got to work!  The kids were super excited when these two fabulous pieces arrived at our home.   I loved it so much that I bought Abby a blanket too.

Jake and Abby both have the 50″ X 60″ Velveteen Personalized Name Blanket.  This is actually pretty big and a great size for a big throw or something to drag around the house.  They also come in a smaller size perfect for Baby gifts and a larger size that is great for your much older child or an adult.  And you can also choose between Jersey or Velveteen fabric.  This blanket was so soft and the perfect weight.

Abby also has her own Personalized Beach Towel.  This is a super nice 30″ X 60″ microfiber beach towel.  Soft, absorbent and has been washing up great with very little wash wear.

And since my last feature they have added Personalized Pillowcases too!  Brooke sent the kids each one for Christmas and they are so soft.

Pictured above is Jake’s blanket.  Abby’s blanket (folded in half),  Abby’s towel and Brooke’s little girl with her Pillowcase.  I would 100% recommend these and I know that a lot of NDND readers would too!

The best part is that you can customize your item with any colors that you want.  Also, you can only use first names, just a last name or whatever you choose!  I chose to do each kid’s full name and their nickname on ours.  I opted for the brighter colors but you can really create this any way that you choose!  Looking for a great Living Room throw?  Add your last name and family members names and opt for a more neutral color.  The world is your oyster guys!  You can either just give them ideas and let them design or tell them specifically what you want!

I saw on their Facebook page that they did a Grandparent blanket! What a great idea!!!  And I think the school spirit ones are great too.  Click here to see even more photos of blankets that people have had made.

Matilda Jane Holiday Giveaway

Congrats Shyla G.

You guys know that we are big fans of Matilda Jane Clothing around here.  Their Fall line, Paint by Numbers, and recent Encore holiday release are full of bold and vibrant colors.  These styles that we know mix and match for so many fun combos.  And with Matilda Jane your little girls can look like little girls for as long as possible.

This holiday season Matilda Jane is giving one of you guys a $50 gift card!  Yay!  I always love taking part in these giveaway features.  They were also kind enought to provide Abby with a few pieces for me to style and share with you.

MJSample

This feature highlights the Turtledove Knot Top, the Biscuit Tee and the Gallery Leggings.  I also added in the Icing Leggings, the Stippling Tee and the Sylvia Tutu skirt.  And because it was a crazy 60 degrees today I went all out and pulled out our Almond Opal Ruffles and our Antique White Ellie top for the shoot too.  Abby hadn’t gotten a chance to wear them this Fall and I was dying to get them on her.

So, without further ado, enjoy these images from our quick shoot today.  Make sure to scroll all of the way through because there is a giveaway at the bottom!

Twentyone Creative – Promo plus Giveaway

 

 

 

 

 

 Congrats Kerri!!

So, with the holidays coming up I wanted to share with you a great company that I was just introduced to!  Twentyone Creative is a creative graphic design studio that handcrafts fresh and original prints.  The Twentyone Creative Etsy shop features so many awesome retro art prints in all sizes and themes.

Fabio, the man behind this company was kind enough to send us a print to test out prior to running this giveaway so that I had first hand experience with his products.  I choose the retro Solar System print to put down in our basement playroom bathroom.   I think its such a fun piece and creative piece of art.  And for some reason I get nostalgic seeing Pluto on there.  Long live Pluto.  Now I can teach the kid’s about the good old days when there were 9 planets.

Solar System 13" x 19" - Vintage Poster - Retro Art Print

 

Our print arrived super quick in a sturdy cardboard tube and I was immediately very impressed with the paper quality.   Twentyone Creative uses a high quality cotton Fine Art Paper with a smooth matte finish.  So reminiscent of the original genuine etching and printmaking papers.  We ordered a 13″ by 19″ poster and the ink quality on it was great.  Even looking at it super close there were absolutely no flaws or inconsistencies in the ink distribution and the colors were so vibrant.  He uses Epson UltraChrome archival inks on all of his work to ensure this high level of quality.

Check out our print! I love it!

Here is a taste of what else you will find at Twentyone Creative along with combo packs too!  Each item comes in a couple different sizes but Fabio encourages you to Etsy Convo him if you have any special requests or are looking for a particular size!  I love the first three for toy rooms or children’s rooms.    The crayon one is pretty awesome.

Rockin’ Refuel Review + Giveaway

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Rockin Refuel®. All opinions are 100% mine.

Congrats Chris F.

Rockin' Refuel

So, a month ago Rockin’ Refuel reached out to me about a review / giveaway and at first I was not going to participate because it’s not 100% in my niche but then I got to thinking and I personally wanted to try it so heck you guys might just want to hear about it too!  And we can always use a little break from the clothes and kiddie stuff!

The kind folks at Rockin’ Refuel sent us a box of goodies to try out.  Containing a Rockin’ Refuel Protein Milk Beverage carton, individual bottles of their different Rockin’ Refuel product and even some Shamrock farms milk and chocolate milk for the kids!  My readers that know me personally know that I am always trying to eat as clean as possible in this crazy world and also that I like to work from the gym because (a) it’s my happy place and (b) 2 hours of free daycare!

We all know that milk is the original protein drink.  And we all know how important it is to refuel and rehydrate within the critical two-hour recovery window after exercise.  After a workout (yes I think a trip to the store with 2 kids counts as a workout too) us busy moms often find ourselves reaching for a quick energy fix, drinking only water or just forgetting to replenish all together.   So, Shamrock Farms® created their new Rockin’ Refuel® line to provide active individuals with delicious, natural protein beverages to deliver the best nutrition for their workout.  Because it contains real milk, Rockin’ Refuel is an excellent source of protein and calcium, and is the only protein beverage that boasts naturally occurring electrolytes. And it tastes great- not chalky like other protein beverages!

Check out their variety of products below!

10-31-2013 2-03-30 PM

We have officially polished off all that we were sent and my husband already requested that I buy more!  Everyone in the family took part in this review.  Matt and I loved the taste of all of the beverages because really they tasted just like chocolate milk.   The kids even tried the Muscle Recovery and it tasted so much like chocolate milk that they didn’t even notice the difference.   I love that these are made with real milk as a base and very natural for a fortified protein drink.   I drank the Muscle Recovery after my morning runs / workouts and they gave me ample energy to make it lunch without feeling hungry or tired.  Matt has been using more of the Muscle Builder  and loves it too!

I plan on continuing to buy it because I know it tastes great and I am so tired of just grabbing something random at the gym and having it taste like chalk or be too thick to drink.  Plus if the kids try to snag a drink I know that it’s made with real milk vs what some of the other options are made of.

How to buy

You can purchase Rockin’ Refuel and other Shamrock Farms products at your local Wal-mart or  at 7-11.  You can read all about what lifestyles / activities that the different products are best fit for on their Product Information page.

Rest easy in CityThreads sleepwear {giveaway}

City Threads Kids Clothes

You all know that we just love City Threads.  Made in the USA, this 100% cotton line is soft yet sturdy and offers so many styles from hip and trendy graphics to basic solids.  Jake has been wearing the shirts since he was a baby.  He spent the last two summers with their adorable swim trunks.  Last year we fell in LOVE with their underwear and camisoles for Abby.  She wears those everyday.  We love the thick cotton they use and the nice sturdy seams.  No tight elastic binding here.

But we have never tried their PJs!

Until Now.

Last week our friends at City Threads sent Jake one of their Striped Pajama sets.  I have no idea why I haven’t bought these sooner.  They are made with the same thick durable cotton that their regular clothes are made with so I am not surprised that I love them!  They are nice and fitted and washed up really well.  Jake is seen below in a size 3T which fit perfectly on him.  As these are meant to be snug fitting PJs you can also size up easily for longer wear.  I will definitely be buying more pajamas from City Threads in the future and am so glad that I finally got a chance to try them out!

I realize as I post this that the colors look very different in my flat vs modeled pictures.   I took some upstairs and some in the basement.  The true color is a nice mix between the two extremes shown below!

They have full zip up footed PJs and also popular two piece sets for boys and girls.  These range in sizes from newborn up through 10y+ in some styles.  They carry something for everyone as you can choose from gender neutral basic stripes or fun rainbows and rockets.

MAN

Meet ABCmouse.com {Giveaway}

Congrats to Jenna S.!

ABC mouse

I am really excited to share ABCmouse with you guys tonight!  I have seen ads for this site and even did a feature a couple years ago on it.  But, this is the first time that I have had a child old enough to really utilize it.  And utilize it she does!  I can’t keep her off the thing.  For real.

In a nutshell ABCmouse is an award winning, subscription based online learning initiative for children ages 2 through 6.  It is free of ads, popups, external links and is 100% focused on making learning fun for your child and creating an interface for you and your little one to experience learning together.  You can read through their FAQs for the answer to most questions that you may have.

When you open up an ABCmouse account (click here for a free 30 day trial) you immediately personalize it to your family by adding your parent account and applicable child accounts.  Your child is even able to create their own avatar which Abby had a blast doing!   Once you are all set up you can choose an appropriate age level (toddler, preschool, pre-K, etc) and are taken to their classroom.  From there you can click on so many features (ie time, drawing, hundreds tables, reading, the world, etc) or just click on the whiteboard to go through their learning track.

We started her in Preschool and her first order of business was a great mouse tutorial which really helped her get a feel for using the mouse.  Then she started her lessons and just kept on going.  She is thrilled when she earns ‘tickets’ by completing lessons and uses them to buy things for her ‘virtual room’ like picture frames, stuffed animals and more.

We have been using this a lot for about a week now and logged many hours but feel like we haven’t even scratched the surface on activities and lessons.  She is always asking to ‘play’ ABCmouse and I really love seeing her having fun learning.  Jake has been getting in on the action too.  He loves the toddler stories and songs.  The kids also love going on ‘field trips’ via the left sidebar and visiting the zoo, farm and more.

As a parent, I am able to go into my portion and track which activities that she completed and how far she has progressed.  And I love that they have an app for the iPhone and iPad so that Abby can learn on the go.

Here are some pictures of the interface as we were using it and Abby getting her learning on this last week!

If you already have ABCmouse I would love to hear about how much you love it!  Feel free to comment below.

If you don’t have an account then I highly recommend that you give the 30 day trial a whirl!  I think that you and your child will really love it and it will give you time to decide if you want to purchase and account for $7.95 monthly or $79.99 per year. I am really glad that we had the chance to really try ABCmouse.  Even my husband thinks it’s awesome.

Swanky Baby Vintage – Review + Giveaway

Congrats Becca!

It’s about time for Swanky Baby Vintage  to release their new Winter line!  “Swanky Little Ladies” will be available for pre-order stating the evening of  Tuesday 9/24/2013.  Holli was so kind to send Abby a few pieces in advance that coordinate with the new line.  Look for a review below.

I do want to touch on one major change over at Swanky Baby Vintage.  As many of you know Holli is determined to keep her production here in the USA and also to keep it affordable for moms like it.  She did a lot of soul searching and decided that it would be best for her family and her brand to no longer wholesale through retailers.  She wanted to simplify the process and cut back the middle man to allow her to pass on lower prices to her customers.  I applaud her for making a really tough decision to scale back and really go with her heart.  So, from this collection onward you will only be able to purchase Swanky Baby Vintage through their site directly at SwankyBabyVintage.com. Which means lower prices for you and less hunting down items from various sites. {read more here}

The new prices will be reflected starting with this collection.

So, now onto the cuteness!  This new collection is full of coral, pink, green, yellow hues.  Great colors for Winter but also allowing for you to use and layer these styles all year long! Look at how cute it looks in these pictures!
SBV

Here is a collection of photos of Abby in her new outfit!  For sizing reference.  All three pieces are a size M(4/5) and fit her perfectly at 44″ 42 lbs.  As always. we love the high quality of this line.  And really love that it is made right here in the USA!

Now, I hate to tell you this but I just found out that due to a last minute change these three pieces are not going to be produced this release so won’t be available to order but will at least give you an idea of the color scheme of this collection!   I personally love that new dress above in the top middle picture!

Matilda Jane: Paint By Numbers Review + Giveaway

Congrats to Mollie Anderson!

You guys know that we are big Matilda Jane fans!  Today I am excited to share a few items from their Fall 2013 Paint By Numbers line with you and give one lucky reader a $50 Matilda Jane gift card!

Matilda Jane was kind enough to send Abby a few new pieces from their Fall line.  These are three pieces that mix and match so well with the entire line!

Skyview Puffer Tee

Turtledove Knot Top

Gleam leggings

Abby had a fun little fashion show with these pieces.  We put them together and then mixed them up with some of our other Paint By Number pieces and a few older favorites!  I know that the Gleam leggings have sold out since they first put together this outfit for her so I made sure to show some other options! I love the Skyview Puffer and Turtledove knot top with the Pointillism Ruffles and the Stencil Ruffles!   These pieces are so fun, young and cute!  Matilda Jane Clothing has the great ability to be worn everywhere!  Abby wears it to school, church, play dates and no matter where we go we always get a million compliments and as Matilda Jane says “Who doesn’t love compliments?”!

Their new Fall line makes use out of some bold magentas mixed in with some neutral yellows, blues, pinks and more.  A great palette and I can’t think of a better name than Paint By Numbers!

Take a look at some of the looks that we created using these pieces along with a few of our other Paint By Numbers favorites at the end!  I love the details in these pieces!

As you can tell it is so easy to make great combinations with Matilda Jane pieces.  Just a handful of items can mix and match in so many ways allowing you to build on to her wardrobe and increase outfit making potential with every piece that you add!

I encourage you to take a look through their new Fall Paint by Numbers line! I know that you will fall in love!  The quality with this Fall line is great and we love Matilda Jane because our items hold up so well!

The other thing that I really love about Matilda Jane is the way that they give back.  Both here in America and in countries around the world.  The brand really is based on the best intentions of spreading love, keeping kids young and just enjoying the beauty around us… all while looking so cute!

Joann Grace Designs: Review + Giveaway + Code

Congrats Elizabeth!!

Joann Grace Designs by PDS Corporate Sales LLC

I just have to say that I think you guys will LOVE this feature!  I know that I do!

Several weeks ago Brooke from Joann Grace Designs reached out to me about her Personalized Name Blankets and Towels!  She follows NDND and knows how important first hand experience is with me and she so kindly offered to send Jake a blanket and Abby a towel.  She just knew that I would love them (and 110% do)!  We gave her our info and they got to work!  Less than a week later these two fabulous pieces arrived at our home.  Keep in mind that since these are made custom just for you each order may take up to 10-14 days to arrive.  UPDATE: Due to the heavy volume of orders placed today with our exclusive promo code orders may take up to 3 weeks.  For some wiggle room.

Jake received the 50″ X 60″ Velveteen Personalized Name Blanket.  This is actually pretty big and was so perfect for a big 2.5 year old to love on!  This size will work for him for years to come!  He has been using it nightly in his bed and when we showed him how it said JAKE he was so excited to have something of “his own” that Abby couldn’t swipe!  They also come in a smaller size perfect for Baby gifts and a larger size that is great for your much older child or an adult.  And you can also choose between Jersey or Velveteen fabric.  This blanket was so soft and way thicker than I had imaged it to be!  Abby totally want’s her own too so I think that will be great for a Christmas gift!

Abby received her own Personalized Beach Towel.  This is a super nice 30″ X 60″ microfiber beach towel.  Soft, absorbent and has been washing up great with very little wash wear.  This is something that she will be able to use for years to come!  I need to grab one for Jake to use too!

 

Joann3

I would 100% recommend these! And if you check out the reviews on their site you will see that I am not alone.  They have so many happy customers out there!

I love that you can customize your item with any colors that you want.  Also, you can only use first names, just a last name or whatever you choose!  I chose to do each kid’s full name and their nickname on ours.  I opted for the brighter colors but you can really create this any way that you choose!  Looking for a great Living Room throw?  Add your last name and family members names and opt for a more neutral color.  The world is your oyster guys!  You can either just give them ideas and let them design or tell them specifically what you want!

I saw on their Facebook page that they had done a Grandparent blanket! What a great idea!!!  And I think the school spirit ones are great too.

So, what better way to celebrate than a giveaway!  Now, if you know me you know that I am not normally into these big giveaways.   I just want to give something back to my readers and I am thrilled that my favorite boutiques and designers are helping me do just that!  A huge thanks goes out to each of our sponsors!  And look for some special features this week highlighting some of them!

Here is a list of the generous sponsors!  These are links to their sites for you to check them out and also give them a big thank you for participating in this great event!  These companies all rock and are I have gotten to know each and everyone of them over the past couple of years and am so glad to call them my friends!  And you guys too!

KiDECALS: Review + Giveaway

 

Congrats Jesi Cole!988268_10151704273784718_1666928010_n

So… as much as I hate to say these words… It is officially Back To School time!  So, how about a fun Back To School flash giveaway?

Here at NewDayNewDeals we find awesome deals on top brands every day!   And it’s important that we protect our goods as we send them to school with our kiddos!  This is why I love labeling them!  No need for sharpies!  Just high quality labels that are machine washable and easily removable for when it comes time to sell that item once it is outgrown or has ran its course.

I am so excited to host this giveaway for KiDECALS!  They contacted me last week and asked me to pick on a $28 Mega Set that includes 24 two inch labels and 48 one inch labels.  That is 72 labels in total.  Enough to last a long time!  I went to their site and picked out some for Jake as Abby already  has some from last year.  So, last Thursday August 1st, I went on and designed some super cute labels for Jake and holy cow they already arrived today!  Yes, under 4 total days total turnaround time, including a weekend, and they are here.  And I love them and the packaging was super cute too!

I am super impressed with the quality of these!  And I love how tick and durable they are.   I have had some cheaper ones in the past that were way more thin and didn’t have the built in protective layer on them.  These are very high quality labels and you get so much for your money!  Right away we added them to his Dabawalla lunch bag and his Itzy Ritzy snack bags because my biggest pet peeve is when those don’t make it home with the lunch box!

Now they have a TON of different styles of labels for back to school but also many for other needs including allergies, chalkboard, canning, doorbell, classroom and many more including ones shaped like mustaches!  You can proof each item on the same page as your design it allowing you to move text over, center things, change colors and more!  This is SO nice because when you click add to cart you actually know then and there what you are purchasing!

So, if you are in the market for some back to school labels I would highly recommend KiDECALS.   I am actually going to go back and order some for Abby because these are so much nicer than the ones that she had from last year!  If you have any questions please make sure to check out their FAQ here!
