Paper Hat Press – Review + Giveaway

Congrats TRACI!!

So, how about we take our mind off the closets for a minute and talk about something else fun!  Has anyone heard of Paper Hat Press?  This fun site lets you create a personalized book for your child that is sure to be a hit at bedtime.  Because, duh, its all about them.  And I know that is how most little kids roll.

In a nutshell, these books go beyond simply customizing a story with a child’s name and birth date.  Each story can be customized with a child’s favorite things – toy, pet, food, playground – as well as with the child’s family.  Also, each story celebrates a child’s super qualities and the giver’s wishes.  Not only can each story be customized, so can each character. Customize a character’s skin tone, hair color and length, and eye color to resemble your child.  That is what makes these not just a beautiful book but a meaningful keepsake by combine traditional picture book quality with meaningful customization.

I had the chance to create a book for both Abby and Jake and they turned out so cute!  The process is super quick.  You first choose a template from selection of 8.5″ by 8.5″ hardcover children’s books.  Then you can go ahead and “create” your child using a series of features.  Next, you can add their name, a special message, and then customize their traits, likes, family members and more.  Once you do that you can review your book, checkout and it will arrive in just a couple of weeks if not sooner!

I choose the two most popular books, Little Sparkle and Little Super for Abby and Jake.  The process took just minutes and the books arrived quickly and packaged beautifully with Kraft Paper that actually is a project in and of itself.  Complete with instructions on how to turn that wrap into a Paper Hat of your own!

These books were great quality with nice thick pages and the kids just loved them!

Here is a little peak inside our special books!

Cute right?  You can purchase these at www.PaperHatPress.com where they are backed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee!   And make sure to follow them on Facebook to stay up to date on the latest promo codes, deals and newest designs!

And of course I have one to giveaway too!

SwimZip – Review + Giveaway

Congrats Deidre!

I am really excited to tell you about SwimZip.  What is even more fun is that they contacted me Thursday and I received our suits in the mail the next day.  I looked at the return address and realized that their headquarters are just miles from our house here in the south suburbs of Kansas City!  I opened up the package and fell in love with Jake and Abby’s new swimsuits!

First of all, I want to share some of the background on this company!  Betsy is a mom like us who unfortunately was diagnosed with skin cancer in her late twenties.  She watched her brother struggle with forcing tight rash guards over her niece and nephew’s heads and lathering them with sunscreen over and over again while on vacation in Mexico.  She thought that there just HAD to be an easier way.  And there the seeds were planted.  Now we have SwimZip and I am actually pretty jealous that I didn’t think of this myself!

SwimZip makes two piece swim sets.  The tops are their revolutionary zippered rash guards.   These are made of SPF50 fabric and will protect your child’s sensitive skin from the sun.  Each set comes with coordinating bottoms – swim trunks for boys and regular brief style bottoms for girls.  Sizes currently run from 6-12 months on up to 4T and these run very true to size!  AND in a couple weeks they will have some new styles up to size 9! What is pretty awesome is that you can use the zip up rash guard with any suit.  Expecting a super hot day on the lake? Throw it over her 2 piece for extra protection.

I love these for three reasons!

(1) They are great for protecting our children’s sensitive skin while also super easy to get on and off.

(2) The styles are super cute.  Ruffles & polka dots? Yes, please!

(3) They retail for under $30!

And its not just me that loves these.  Check out their press page.  They have been featured in every major magazine, showcased on TV shows such as The Today Show and Jessica Alba’s daughter was recently seen wearing the same one that Abby has on their Cabo vacation.  Tori Spelling’s daughter Stella was even seem wearing the Ruffle Me Pretty set!

Jake got a chance to try out the Surfer Dude set.  This is a 2T on him and fits him perfectly.  He is basically a solid 2T in most other brands now.  Abby received the Sassy Surfer set in a 4T.  It fits her great as well.  She is 42″ 38lbs and a pretty solid 4T.  Both sets have SwimZip’s signature full-length zippered top.  These are made from a wide, sturdy zipper that is super easy to pull up and down.  All seams are finished flat and the top of the zipper panel even has a great flap to cover the zipper so that it doesn’t bother your child.

Check out the adorable details and how cute these are here!  And yes, those ruffles are fabulous!


I found that the tops were not skin tight like some other ones that we have had and these two piece set makes those diaper changes and potty breaks SO much easier!

They have several cute styles so make sure to check them all out!

And you can follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest  too!

Jake got the chance to try out their Personalized Star Shirt! I plan on having him wear this for his 2nd birthday in March but we put it on for a spin over the weekend!  This is a size 2T on him.  They can be made in a bunch of styles {view all here} and in onesies up to size 9 months and t-shirts up to size 4.  You have to option to choose long sleeve or short sleeve and specify colors that you would like!

Abby got in on the action too and received one of their Double Shabby Chic headbands.  This style is offered in 6 different sizes and this is the 2-6 years on her.  It is a hair big but I love that the elastic isn’t skin tight on her forehead and it will last years!

Sage Creek Organics: Review + Giveaway + Code

Congrats to Julie!

Organic Cotton Baby Clothes and Baby Bedding by Sage Creek Organics

 

A couple weeks ago I shared with you a great sale at Sage Creek Organics. {read that post here}  Since then Jake has had a chance to try out their organic pajamas from Sage Creek Organics and I am excited to share our experience with you and give one of you guys a pair of your own!

Just to recap again. Here is a little background on Sage Creek Organics:

Organic cotton baby clothes, organic children’s clothes and organic cotton baby bedding are our specialty and passion! Absolutely no chemicals or pesticides are used in the entire growing and manufacturing process. All dyes are eco-friendly and no finishing agents are used on our organic baby clothes fabric. We start with 100% organic and finish 100% organic.

Our practices revere and respect nature; keep children in the schools and not in the workplace; and foster an environment of integrity and consciousness. We will continue to do our best to provide consumers with heirloom quality organic cotton products for their family.

This brand specializes in a large selection of layette and baby clothes along with everyday apparel for toddler boys and girls.  Additionally, they carry blankets, washcloths, towels and more.

This past week Jake got to try out a pair of their new Safari pajamas!  These are super soft and a great snug fit as pajamas should be.  This is a size 2 on Jake but he could have probably done a size 3.  I found the ran a little bit small but he is also a BIG guy at 35″ 33lbs so I would recommend sizing up if between sizes.

These were super soft and I love that they are organic!

I would recommend these pajamas and not hesitate to buy more!  They are made from super soft 100% organic jersey cotton.  They are allergen free, made with earth-friendly dyes and machine wash.  We have already washed them and they washed up great!

In addition to their pajamas and layette, Sage Creek Organics has baby clothes along with everyday apparel for toddler boys and girls.  They also carry blankets, washcloths, towels and more.  And everything is organic which is awesome!

A Message on a Shirt: Let’s Give {giveaway}

Congrats to Allie P you won the hobo bag!  And huge thanks to everyone for sharing some inspirational stories and idea.  

So, last month after the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook I wrote a little post sharing a message on one of Jake’s shirts. {read that here}  I know that a lot of you guys enjoyed that and its a refreshing break from shopping to talk about real things and really making a difference.   I like to be able to use my voice for good sometimes and am so fortunate that I have an opportunity to do so as a blogger.  That last post made me thing and this week I was again inspired to share a message with you from one of Abby’s new shirts.  Ironically, its another Go Gently Baby top.  Well, maybe not so ironically because their mission is to tread lightly, inspire and do good.

Here is a peek at the outfit that got me thinking!

 

I bought this shirt a couple of weeks ago {for sale here} mainly because I thought it was super cute!  I didn’t know what it said on it until I got it and surprise it was another meaningful message for me!  And I wanted to share it with you along with a few thoughts.

The shirt reads:

“What if I was taught to give more? Give to others, other than me? It is by your example that I will learn how to make a difference.  The world needs to give.  I could take less for myself.  I thinks I could be happy with less.  Maybe happier.  What if I was taught to give more? Give to others, other than me.  Teach me to see the need around me.  It is by your example that I will learn how to make a difference.  The world needs us to give.  I would take less for myself.  I think that  I could be happy with less.  Maybe happier.  What if I was taught to give more? Give to others, other than me.  Teach me to see the need around me.  It is by your example that I will learn.”

So, here is what I have to say!  I know that I post a lot of deals and encourage you to buy all of these great things.  We are all so fortunate to be able to afford them and while there is nothing wrong with giving our children the best and doing our own shopping thing we need to make sure that we are also teaching them that its not just all about the stuff.   One of the best things that you can teach them is appreciation for what they have, understanding of they truly need, compassion towards those who have less and that sometimes it is better to give than to get.

As I have mentioned before that moderation is so key in everything.  This may sound crazy coming from a shopping blogger but we all need a reminder sometimes to help us see the big picture.   Our beautiful children as blessed to have parents that give them so many nice things.  Whats even more beautiful is to teach them to share the love.  To think beyond themselves.  When they understand that then they truly are the full package.

Giving comes in so many different forms.  We can teach them by example.  By giving our time, our energy, a smile, a dress, cookies, money, or even just a compliment to another.  Just making an effort to help someone makes the biggest impact.  Like bringing a lasagna to a friend after they have a baby. (Thanks Emily!)  Just one giving act however small directly impacts the recipient and if our child can see how nice it is to be on the receiving end they will remember.  Matt tells me of a time when he was young and his mom and him delivered a gift basket to one of his friend’s ill mother.  They drove up, dropped it off and ran.  They never took credit or expected anything in return.  He remembers it to this day and I know that family probably does too.

So, starting now, maybe we can all think of some ways to give.  To people we know.  To strangers.  To one another.

I will start it off!  I caught a couple new Hobo bags on the Matilda Jane Platinum site last week.   I was going to keep both but I don’t need both of them.   I want one of you to have one and make you smile!

So, here is a little giveaway for you!  And here is the gift!

Giveaway

Enter to win this gift from me!  This is a large Matilda Jane hobo bag.  Not a kid’s bag.  One for mom!  Super cute as an everyday bag, diaper bag, purse, gym bag or anything you want!

This is my way to give something back to my readers .  Therefore, this giveaway is open to  NewDayNewDeals Facebook fans and/or email subscribers.  New here?  Your welcome to follow either way you choose and enter!

Just comment below with what you have to say.  You can write whatever you want.  Whatever you are thinking.  Need ideas?  You can make a commitment to try to give more.  You can share a story! Has anyone even given you something that made an impact?  How to you teach your child to give?  Have any ideas for ways to teach them?

Want to earn an extra entry?  Let’s spread our message!  Share this post and comment a second time that you did and you will gain an extra entry!

Bunnies Picnic – Review + Giveaway!

Congrats Anny!

Bunnies Picnic

 

In the 4th and final installment of my New Year, New Friends segments this week I want to share a new children’s boutique with you!   I am thrilled to share with you Bunnies’ Picnic!  This online boutique is full of some of our favorite brands and some that we don’t see at every other site!  And did I mention that shipping is always FREE!

Bunnies’ Picnic was recently launched after the owner developed a passion for children’s fashion after her little girl Kyri was born.  She fell in love with so many lines and curated a boutique to sell everything she loved!  It is a small family owned venture and they give back!  Bunnies’ Picnic is donating a percentage of their profits to buy new clothing for foster children in the U.S.  They acknowledge that for underprivileged children, new clothing is a real luxury and a new outfit can do a lot to help a little girl’s self-esteem.  I give them major kudos for this initiative.

At Bunnies’ Picnic you will find brands like A.Bird, Go Gently Baby, Books To Bed, Hannah Banana, Kate Mack, Skylar Luna, Biscotti,  Misha Lulu, Elegant Baby, Le Top and more!  Sizes range from newborn up through a great selection of tween sizes.  You can shop by Brand, Age, Season and even Mood.  Make it a super easy to browse site.  Shipping is super fast too and free!

Here are a few of my favorite pieces at Bunnies’ Picnic.

Trish Scully Dot to Dot Peasant Blouse in Knit FabricTuro Parc Nina Dress in BlackRabbit Moon Swing Top with Wide Cuffs and Ruffled PantsSara Sara Sequin Tank Top with Racer BackSkylar Luna Organic Red & Silver Stars L/S PajamasMisha Lulu City DressOoh La La Couture WOW Dream Dress in Pink Lady for Babies, Toddlers, GirlsGo Gently Baby Olive Oil Dress in BrickHuggalugs Lacettes Leg Warmers in Chantilly CreamDolls & Divas Teal Sequin Tyler Flounce DressKate Mack Dozen Roses Hooded Polar Jacket in RedDolly by Le Petit Tom Rosette Tutu Dress in CreamBooks to Bed Guess How Much I Love You Storybook and Pink Pajamas Gift SetA.Bird Kalan Plaid Coat

 

You guys know that I have a MAJOR weakness for A.Bird.  I was thrilled to see that she carried this line and doubly thrilled to see the amazing sale prices right now!  Bunnies Picnic was kind enough to send Abby and piece from her shop and we choose the A.Bird Kena Cream Mini Tunic.  They went above and beyond and sent her the coordinating Cleo Velvet shorts and they are to for for.  The entire outfit is really!  I do want to take a second to share some sizing!  This set is a 5 on Abby.  In the past A.Bird has ran really big on her and she was in a three or a four. This actually fits her perfect.  I think this Fall 2012 line is running much more true to size and not nearly as generous as in season’s past.  These pieces mix and match with the entire Fall line and can be worn with any of the leggings, shorts, skirts, tops, etc.

So, here it is! How amazing is this outfit!

Visit www.BunniesPicnic.com to shop!  There is a great sale going on and everything ships free and fast!  Let them know that Sarah at NewDayNewDeals sent you!

In the 3rd installment of my New Year, New Friends segments this week I want to share my experience with Art & Soul by Bercot!   I know that many of you took advantage of the big sale a couple weeks ago and have been shopping their end of year sale right now too!  I felt bad that I didn’t have personal experience to share with you and now I am relived that I do!

First a little about the brand.  Art & Soul Boutique specializes in handmade girls clothing from size 12 months to 10 years old and women’s clothing.  Once known as Bercot Children’s Wear they now sell their product solely online.  This line is made in the United States as well which is always a big plus for me!  This line is full of fun prints and soft knits and sure to get you and your little girl some compliments!

Second of all, I just have to say that the ladies at Bercot have been so friendly to me and genuinely want me to be able to share my personal experience with you!  This really stood out before I even received my order.  It arrived with a hand written thank you note and packaged cute and securely.  I was excited to try something new for Abby and even more excited to try something for myself!  Abby ordered the Totally Turquoise T-Shirt dress and I got the Jet Black Furbelow Cardigan.  I have found both to be very true to size just as my readers had recommended that I order.  I really love both pieces!!

Here is Abby in her size 4 Totally Turquoise T-Shirt Dress.  She absolutely loves how it twirls!

 

Here I am in my size Medium cardigan.  I love this piece.  It is perfect for over jeans, around the house or to wear over  a dress for a formal occasion!  It is a nice thin material and lays very well.  You can easily leave it open or put it with a cute skinny belt.

Taylor Joelle: Review + Giveaway

Congrats Paige W!

As part of my New Year, New Friends segment this week I want to share with you a brand that we have all shown interest in but none of us really had a lot of personal experience with.  So, today I want you to meet Taylor Joelle.  With everything from dresses to leggings and ties to cardigans, Taylor Joelle has what you need in top quality product and affordable pricing.

Since 2007, Taylor Joelle Designs has been all about boutique baby and children’s clothing and accessories for both boys and girls. They also offer a weekly Hot Buy on their website which is always a steal.  You can sign up to get notified of the Hot Buy’s by submitting you email in the bottom left hand corner of their website.  They release a few times each year with new styles and each even better than the last!  This Winter’s release is called Midnight In Manhattan.  It is bold with navy and green and designed to add a little “city feel” to you child’s wardrobe.

Here is a taste of what Midnight in Manhattan brings!

Taylor Joelle Designs Striped Ruffle LeggingsTaylor Joelle Designs Polka Dot Cardigan

 

First off I have to say that I am in LOVE with those navy striped leggings!  Those are on my must have list!  I also love the navy tie.  We have had a Taylor Joelle tie for Jake before and they are great quality and fabric all around the neck with easy to adjust Velcro.  Abby was given the chance to try out their new Midnight In Manhattan Tutu dress.  This was SO cute on her!  For reference this is a size 4 on her and it is a little snug.  She is typically a 4/5.  Sizes run a hair small but nothing crazy.  I think this would be so cute with their striped leggings and that polka dot cardigan but you know me… I love thinking outside the box and mixing up fun outfits with what we have in the closet.

This is how we styled this dress! I did a variety of looks to cover how we would wear it for cool, warm and warmest weather.  I am obsessed with that first outfit (with the polka dot knee socks).  It is just perfect on Abby!  This bodice of this dress is a nice fitted knit and the tutu is great with a mix of mesh and thick lace.  Abby wore this out with me today and got a TON of compliments on it.

I had a lot of fun with this outfit and enjoyed getting to share this brand with you!  I would recommend it to anyone and will be purchasing again.  I love that Taylor Joelle allows you to dress your child is the stylish outfits at a fraction of the price of some other big brands.  Great for everyday wear and special occasions.

The Good Ones – Review + Giveaway

CONGRATS JAYDEE!

I know that you guys have seen Jake wearing some clothing from The Good Ones.  This line launched back in March of 2012 as a collaboration between Matilda Jane Clothing and One Lucky Guitar.  Inspired by a make-believe band called The Final Hurrahs this clothing line follows the band on their fictitious world tour.  The clothing and music are intertwined into one inspiring and good-natured endeavor.

You can read more about the background of The Good Ones by reading my past article [ click here].  I also had the chance to meet and talk with Matt Kelly, one of the men behind this fun clothing line, last summer at Art Fair.  You can read more about that trip and my interview with him by clicking here.

This post I really want to talk about the clothes and of course my experience with them!  I love these posts because I can really help you guys with sizing and really help you make the right choices when buying online!  And of course give some away because that’s how we roll.

So, lets chat clothes!

So far The Good Ones have released 2 different collections!  Numero Uno was released back in the Spring and was slightly tied in to Matilda Jane’s Serendipity line.  The pieces were super cute but the kept hearing that people wanted a few more options for basic knits at a lower price point.  Their Fall collection Rock on Four Legs is priced more in the $20 range and this one is not tied into the MJ line.  It is a response to a request for more basic t-shirt so that boys can be boys!  They also reduced the prices of the first collection on their site so that it appeals to more people!

I had purchased a couple things last Spring from TGO and they were so kind to send me some more stuff for a review this Fall!

I want to start with Numero Uno!  Everything that you see pictured on Jake here is a size 2.  I think that the pants run a little bigger than the rest and more true to size if not a hair big.  I have them cuffed on Jake but they do have an elastic waistband.  The tops are all size 2 and fit him great.  He is getting into a regular size 2 now so I would say they run just a little small in this size range.  I heard that you should size up in these once you get into the boy sizes.

 

Here he is wearing the Graffiti tee.  It is a 2.  He got this when he was 12 months and it fit then too.  This material is their 95% cotton/5% spandex blend.  It is a great material.  If I were buying again I would probably size up to a 4 for his current size.

This was back in May when Jake was 14 months old.  He is wearing the adorable Musician’s Unite shirt.  This piece coordinate’s with a lot of the Matilda Jane Serendipity line from last Spring too!  This is pretty fitted on him now.  I would probably get a 4 if I was buying it now.

Up next is the Haberdash Necktie.  This is a one-size fits all item and is adjustable with a zipper in the back.  It is super cute and I think best for the 4+ crowd just for length.  It is super but with a few of the MJ pieces too.  We styled it up and even added a little TGO pin onto Jake’s favorite Fedora.

HABERDASH NECKTIE – Fashion, rule #1: Confidence never goes out of style. And your guy will be beaming with confidence with this selection from our haberdash series. Features: Easy-to-use zip-up functionality, embroidered “TGO” logotype. 

This shirt is my FAVORITE!  I have had my eye on the Gentleman’s Western Shirt and I am do glad to finally have my hands on it too.  I think this shirt is perfect all the way down to the quote on the back.  “The Last Gentle Man Standing”.  I think this 2 fits Jake perfectly and this style is great for boys of all ages!

“The Last Gentleman Standing”–whether he’s standing out on the range, or in a busy city center, your lil’ gent will be timelessly styled in our Western long sleeve. Features: Color infused design with embroidered accents, contrasting inner cuffs, flap pockets and totally awesome pearl snap closures.

Up next is our final piece from the first collection.  The Achtung Trouser.  Now, this 2 I think ran a little big.  I have the pants rolled up on him.  The waistband is adjustable and this is a great comfortable style for the little guys!

Our dark olive Achtung! Trouser is made for versatility–your guy may wear these to a wedding reception, then flip up the high-vis bike cuffs and escape to the skate park during the slow dance. Features: Contrast yellow gold stitching, orange TGO adjustable elastic waist, fold-up reflective cuffs keep you visible–and your pant legs stay off the greasy bike chain.

There are several other pieces in Numero Uno including some great T-shirts and basic shorts.  Great for your boys and even your little girls!

Now, onto the newest release called Rock on Four Legs.  This collection is smaller and mainly consists of T-Shirts.  These fun shirts are all based on part of the grand world tour and represent songs, destinations and memories of that The Final Hurrahs have dreamed up!

Jake tried out the new World Tour Jacket.  A great lightweight piece that really words all through Spring/Summer/Fall.  This is a size 2 on him and seems to run a little bigger or more true to size  than the other pieces.

Our World Tour Jacket is spanning the globe with three-season wearability. (Maybe all four, depending on where that tour takes you. Sydney, anyone?) Features: Reversible design, “tourliner” gauge knit lining, snap front with red drawstring accents. Plus, it makes that awesome “swishy” sound!

 

Under Jake’s jacket you can see the Dance Dance Dance Long-Sleeved tee.  This super cute red shirt features the band in all their glory!  This shirt is a size 2 but is printed on a long sleeved American Apparel tee.  Those are known to run super small and Jake would probably normally be a size 3 or even 4 in this shirt.  Its a great thick cotton piece and so cute with basic jeans!

This red long sleeve tee celebrates everyone’s favorite band, The Final Hurrahs. The band believes kids should dance early, and dance a lot–and they lead by example. Features: Features: Screenprinted on American Apparel “baby rib” tee, slim-fitting, unisex.

You can also buy The Final Hurrahs newest CD which Jake has been dancing too like crazy!  The songs are fun and not babyish while still conveying messages of confidence, adventure and friendship.

So, I hope that you enjoyed my little photo tour of The Good Ones!  Keep in mine that my sizing recommendations are based on him at 20 months and I hope that they help give you more security when buying online!

Win a $150 Tea Collection Gift Card + Exclusive Code!

CONGRATS to our winner — Sachi!

You guys know that I love Tea Collection.  It is my favorite brand for comfortable everyday knits! I love that the pieces are all easy to mix and match while being super cute at the same time.

A little background on Tea Collection.

Each season the brand travels to a new global destination to get inspiration for their line that given season.  This Fall the clothes were inspired by the Nordic countries.  Last Spring, they were in Bali.  Many of the basic comfortable styles stay the same season to season but the prints and patterns reflect the style of  new global destination.

The Clothes

Pictures speak 100 words and I love sharing my kids wearing my favorite brands.  Here are some shots of Abby & Jake rocking their Tea Collection for everyday play!   You can see more in the Tea Collection category of both AbbyTrends.com and JakeTrends.com  We have owned many pieces over several seasons and I always fall in love with each new release more and more.  Several pieces from the Fall nordic collection have already been marked down so this is a great chance to shop!

I find this brand to run very true to size for my kids. Jake is pretty much growing out of 18/24 months and wearing size 2Ts.  Abby is a comfortable 4T and will be in size 5s some Spring/Summer.  Abby loves how easy these dresses/leggings are to get on herself!

 

The new Nordic Holiday line was just released and the pieces are  great for the holiday season but will also transition well for daily wear outside of the holiday!  This is a big plus for me.  I always get so sad when we only have a month to wear holiday sets because they are too Christmasy.  These pieces are easy to wear all year long!   Make sure that you notice the exclusive promo code below!  This is a great chance to save on a newly released line!

Tea Collection also has a great promotion going on with their Baby line.  You can used code BABYBOGO for Buy One Get One Free while shopping the layette section.  These pieces make great shower gifts too!

One of my favorite things about Tea Collection is that while the clothing is affordable and the resale value is also great.  Often times once you outgrow your outfit you can fetch at least 1/2 of what you paid for it back on Ebay.  I use this money to buy more Tea!

If you have not yet tried Tea Collection I really encourage you to give this brand a try.  Your child will be comfortable in the soft knits and stylish in the bold, fun prints.  This brand holds up so well and it easy to wash and care for which is a big deal in our house!

Discount

Now through 11/20 NewDayNewDeals readers can use code NEWDAY15 for an extra 15% off your order at TeaCollection.com.  {good on sale and regular priced items}.  Cannot be combined with any other promo codes.  Great chance to save on the new Nordic Holiday line!
