Baby Bedding Zone Review

I love baby nurseries. I think they're so adorable when they're color coordinated and I absolutely love animal themed ones. Since I have two boys, I was frugal and used the same theme for both of them. It was farm animals and ABC blocks. It was perfect, in my opinion!
I was recently sent a set of Sterling Anabella Palm Beach Curtains for review from Baby Bedding Zone and boy are they gorgeous! The set I chose to review were white pique draperies with green scalloped edge trim. Brayden picked them out because green's his favorite color and he wanted them in his room. These curtains are made of 100% Egyptian Cotton and are lined to keep sunlight out. The best thing about these curtains is that they are machine washable so there's no expensive dry cleaning bills if and when my boys get them dirty.


When they arrived I couldn't believe how heavy they were. Before I opened the box, I thought there's no way there's curtains in there.. But thats exactly what they were (LOL). I suppose they're so heavy because of the lining, but when you're buying curtains for a baby or kids room I think you definitely need them to be lined in hopes that the children will sleep later. Of course, we're up at the crack of dawn regardless of sunlight or not. I also couldn't believe how long they are.. 96" to be exact!
Baby Bedding Zone also offers many things other than curtains such as, designer crib bedding, toddler and kids bedding, and decor. When I was searching through their crib bedding sets for boys I came across this adorable frog and turtle set and totally fell in love! Too bad neither of my boys are in cribs anymore.


If you're in the market for baby bedding or know anyone that is you should definitely check BabyBeddingZone.com! I'm sure if you look at all of their baby bedding patterns you'll find exactly what you're looking for!!

Pambra's Review and Giveaway *Closed*

I've had large breasts for as long as I can remember. In high school, when people were trying to describe me to someone I was always "ya know, such and such's friend, the girl with the big boobs". Since I've had my boys, they've gotten even bigger (38DD to be exact). And all of you other big breasted women out there know that with big boobs comes boob sweat. It's inevitable, even in the dead of winter, my boobs sweat. It's ridiculous if I may say so myself! When I read on a Blog Mom's group that I belong to that Pambra's was looking for bloggers to review their product I knew I had to try them out!
Pambra's, The original bra liner was created by Pamela, a stay home mom who wanted to make money and continue to stay home with her kids. I'm sure all of us stay home mom's can relate to that!
What exactly is a Pambra's bra liner? Pambra's are a soft cotton liner designed to absorb perspiration under and between the breasts. They also provide comfort from underwire and irritating elastic. The great thing about Pambra's is that they come in 3 different designs: The original, the unilateral which was designed for women who have had a single mastectomy, and the bilateral for women who have had a double mastectomy.
I received the original liner (size large) for this review and overall I'm pretty pleased. It's a little tricky to get the liner positioned in the right spot.. There was a lot of lifting the breast, putting the band under, pulling the bra back down.. I did that about 3 times for each breast but I have to say it was well worth it in the end. I just got done playing outside with my boys for the past 2 hours in 80 degree heat with horrible humidity and my bra is dry!!
My thoughts: Why hadn't I heard about Pambra's sooner! I will say, I don't think this will be an everyday thing, but definitely on super hot days and nights on the town (not that that happens very often) I will be rockin' the Pamba's original liner!

Boogie Wipes Review and Giveaway *Closed*


I am constantly reminding my boys to use a tissue and not their shirt sleeves when their noses are running. But ever since they heard about Boogie Wipes they always come running and ask for one when they have boogers. Personally, I think they just like the name (LOL) or maybe it's because they come in cool flavors like grape, mint, and fresh scent.
You're probably asking yourself "What are Boogie Wipes?" Boogie Wipes were created by two moms who were trying to find a solution to their kids sore, runny noses. Boogie Wipes are made with natural saline to dissolve mucus caused by cold and allergies. They're recommended by pediatricians as a gentle, effective alternative to dry tissues.
Boogie Wipes recently started a new promotion called Save the Sleeve. It's a fun way for kids to learn some gross facts about boogers, take a pledge to use Boogie Wipes instead of their sleeves, and even get a cool backpack badge or tattoo pack.

Boogie Wipes also offers a Teacher Kit which includes a poster with Save the Sleeve pledge guidelines, 50 Boogie Wipes samples, $1 OFF coupons and 2 classroom canisters. These are perfect for any classroom and would make a great end of the year teacher gift.

**Buy It**
Go to the Boogie Wipes website and buy your own Boogie Wipes. You can also purchase them at Target, Walmart, Toys R Us, Walgreens, and Rite Aid.

**Win It**
Boogies Wipes has generously offered 2 packs of 30 count wipes to one of my readers.
