Meet Ava Bella Designs

I hope that everyone had a great weekend!  I wanted to take a few minutes to introduce you to Ava Bella Designs.  Our new friend Jennifer thought up this line with the intention of creating fun, easy to wear styles that keep little girls little.  Her pieces are hand sewn right here in the USA with great attention to detail and the sweetest little fabrics!

Here is a little peak at what is currently available on her website!  All items are made in very limited quantities in size 12 month through 7 years.  All items are ready to ship too!!  Make sure to go and browse around her site to see it all.

Of course I find first hand experience to be so valuable when shopping online and especially trying out a new line.  So here is Abby with a first hand photo review!  I want to mention that the quality was great! Seams finished perfectly and obvious attention to fabric placement.  This is a size 4/5 Make Believe Ava dress on Abby.  She is 46″ 43lbs and normally a 5/6 so this is a little snug on her.  So, if between sizes I would order up.  Both her and I LOVED this print too!  And the price point is great for handmade apparel with this dress under $40, shorties under $25 and the halter tops under $33.  Plus, I have a free shipping offer below for you too so make sure to scroll all of the way down!

So, take a peak at Abby rocking this adorable dress!  We even layered it over some of our ruffle pants and topped it off with our new white shrug for a cooler day look!

Fight For Creativity with Neve/Hawk [+ code]

Neve/Hawk has been paving the way for a new generation of creative souls.  With messages of love, inspiration and pure joy you can’t help but be smitten with them.  I have to say that that when they came by my home here in Kansas last Summer I couldn’t help but be a little jealous of how awesome that they are.  Just an amazing family that truly has fun and lives for each other and just pure uninhibited joy.  Their children’s clothing line is the same.  Neve / Hawk was born  from their passion to create art and celebrate childhood.  All garments are hand screened and finished with love and truly hip little styles that can’t help but get noticed.   And everything is made right here in the USA.

Bob and Kris from Neve/Hawk sent the kids a couple goodies to try and I love them.  I knew they would know just what I would like because their children Neve and Shep are right around the ages of Abby and Jake.   I actually already had these leggings from them that go with the dress they sent so I was super excited.  Please note that the leggings are long sold out but the dress is still available and perfect on it’s own!

So, I went to do a little shoot in the front yard with the kids.  Because that’s how we roll.  I had the dress, leggings and shoes set out and Abby went to put them on. Then she added the yellow necklace because she said that it looks ‘really awesome’.  Then added the gold purse because ‘everyone will love it’.  Then the black hat purely so Jake couldn’t wear it.  And the jacket because it’s January and we clearly weren’t on the same page about the weather.  But it was 60 degrees.  Felt like summer to me!  It’s fun to see her develop her own sense of style.  And it’s really fun just rolling with it and letting her have fun.  And Jake.  His new hand on the hips pose just kills me.  So serious. LOL

If it’s one thing that I can learn from this family is to lighten up!  There is so much fun to be had and laughter to enjoy on this crazy journey called parenthood.

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.

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.

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!

s1

adfdaf

 

This collection will be available in sizes 18/24 months up through size 8.  Quantities are more limited than in the past and once your size is gone then it’s gone.  There will not be any ladies pieces with this release but look for a special collection for us moms come November!

 

Shop

The new Swanky Little Ladies line will release for preorders on Tuesday, Sept 24th at 8pm CST.   They will have the images loaded to their site later tonight for you to view ahead of time!  This line will ONLY be sold via their site at www.swankybabyvintage.com.  They have their Fall collection and other past season items on sale too!

Ship date: About 1/2 of the items will ship out quickly.  The remainder will arrive and ship out in late October through the first week in November.

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!

PBN

 

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!

 

Joann2

JOANN1

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

JoAnn4

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.

Sculpture Clippies Review

 

Well, if she could type I would totally love Abby to write this review because she screamed when she saw these!  She said “Oh My Gosh.  These are awesome!”.  And proceeded to take them upstairs to her bow board before I even finished photographing them!

So, today I want to share Sculpture Clippies with you!  They recently sent Abby several to review and wow…. these are little pieces of fine art!

These hair clips are made with love by Connie Evans.  She specializes in unique one of a kind ribbon sculptures and other handmade hair accessories.  All of her sculptures are handmade  by scratch;  created with fine attention to detail straight from the stool of the ribbons to the completion of the clip.

And the crazy thing is that I was shocked to see how inexpensive that these are!  Most of these are in the $4 – $5.50 range which is such a steal for a handmade little sculpture that is just going to complete and outfit!  Here is a peek at just a few clips that you can purchase via her Etsy shop!

Aren’t those crazy detailed!?!  I love all of the princess ones but really they are all so cute!  Make sure to look through her pages and pages of designs and take advantage of the shipping promo posted below!  Your little girl is SURE to love these!

Abby received some super cute ones and I want to share some “real life” pictures of her wearing them!  Also, Jake wanted to try one on too and I have to say that these are perfect for short hair! They all stayed in their hair so well and you can see the double pronged clippies that she uses in the lower left picture

In addition to the hair clippies Connie also makes an assortment of hair bow holders.  These are only $4-$6 and hold approx 20+ clippies and can be hung on the wall, inside of closet, in the bathroom or where ever you want to keep {or display!} your daughter’s beautiful hair accessories!  She has many cute styles and here is just an idea of what you an purchase!

Tea Collection: Fall Review + Promo Codes

 

8-8-2013 12-07-44 PM

 

 

You guys know that we LOVE Tea Collection around here!  Both kids love the soft knits and I love the fun bold prints!  Each season they gain inspiration from a new global location using the colors and prints to create a new line of pieces in the styles that we know and love and of course some new ones too!

This Fall they traveled to China and bring us a line of awesome graphics, bright magentas, navys, yellows and blues!  I love the hues and the fun color combinations this time around!

Tea Collection gave me a gift card to pick out some of my favorites for Abby and Jake. It was SO hard to choose because I really love so much of it!  {don’t worry, I have already went back for more!}  I chose a top and dress and a pair of bottoms for each.

Abby1 jake1For Abby: Polka Dot Stretch Leggings  * The Fantastic Flight Shirtdress * Peppercorn Kids necklace

For Jake: Busy Beijing Tee * Daytripper Twill Pants

For sizing: Abby is wearing size 6s.  The dress is a little big but I wanted growing room for Fall/Winter.  A 5 would have fit her perfect right now.  Jake is wearing size 4s.  Both a little big as he is a solid 3 but allow for growing room.  His pants have an adjustable waistband and I like to cuff them anyway.

I absolutely love these pieces! The dress is so fun and those leggings are going to match a TON of stuff!  Same with Jake’s pants! They are super soft twill yet have that denim look to them and are going to be a great basic for this Fall.

This is just the tip of the cuteness iceberg from Tea Collection this Fall!   They have so many great pieces this season and make sure to check out the leggings.  There are some great new prints that are going to be pretty cute with a bunch of things (Tea and other brands).  These leggings are basically our go to during the Fall transition and slim enough cut to be really cute with boots.

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!

Gymboree: Fall Review + Giveaway

CONGRATS Lindsey Hall!

 

So, Gymboree recently reached out to me about the kid’s reviewing some of their new Fall lines.  To be 100% honest I haven’t been into a Gymboree in a while and always forget about them when shopping online so I thought it was the perfect time to give them another whirl!   And I am so glad that I did! I found some super cute outfits for the kids and the prices are awesome of course!

With the gift card they gave us we were able to purchase a dress and outfit for Abby and a shirt and outfit for Jake to wear back to school.  And this was even before the big 30% off sale going on now! More on that to follow! Abby and Jake are both at the ages / sizes where they can shop from both the Baby Sections that go up to 5T and the Kid sections that span sizes 3 -12.  This gives me basically twice as many items to choose from!  It was hard to narrow down my selection as there were a lot of things that we really liked.  But we did and here is what we choose!

Style

dress1

I adore this Flower Dot dress from the Baby Girl Smartest In Class collection.  This is a size 5T on Abby and fits her great!  It matches out green petals perfectly and I can’t wait to throw a cute pair of tights and a cardigan over it for cooler weather.  This retails for $29.95 but is on sale for $20.97 right now!  You are crazy not to buy this one because it is adorable!

 

abby set

This outfit is from the big girl section and the Brightest In Class collection.  As you can tell I have a weakness for navy mixed in with fun prints.  Abby picked out the Floral Tiered Skort and the Gem Button Short Sleeve Tee.  Both are a size 5.  The top fits perfect.  The skort is a little big on her right now.  This basic top is going to go with so many of the things in her closet and at only $9 its a steal! Other colors too!

shirt 2

For Jake’s first selection he chose the Plaid Shirt from the online exclusive Little Boy’s Apin’ Around line.  We paired it with a pair of blue Chinos that we had in the closet and it was super cute.  The sleeves unbutton and roll down making it a great piece for Fall, Winter and Spring too!  On sale for $18 right now and the plaid shirt comes in various other colorways throughout the different collection.  This is a 3T on Jake and fits great with a nice amount of growing room.

 

jakset

For Jake’s outfit we shopped the Boy’s Space Voyager collection.  Both pieces are a 3 on Jake and fit great.  The Drawstring Plaid Cargo shorts ($18 on sale) are a great fit on him with the elastic waist.  We started out with him wearing them with the coordinating Spaceship Tee.  You can’t tell at first glace but it glows in the dark and Jake spent a good hour closed off in the laundry room watching it glow!  After an ice cream cone meets shirt experience I swapped out the top for his Blume Tie Shirt and it was awesome with the shorts.  I think these bottoms are going to go with a lot of his boutique shorts for just the first pop of color!

 

We had a great time shopping at Gymboree.com and honestly if you haven’t browsed it in awhile make sure to take a look! There are a LOT of cute pieces that can intermix with items in your child’s closet as well as outfits that are ready to buy and easy to match!

 Shop

Visit Gymboree.com to shop and take advantage of their Back to School sale! Regular priced items are 30% off and sale items are 20% right now.  Shipping is free on orders of $75+.  You can also shop your local Gymobree store but I prefer shopping in my PJs.
