Let's Make Boobs Easier! (+discount and giveaway!)

Fashion should be comfortable. And easy. Especially if you are like me. I don't like being uncomfortable, no matter how gorgeous I look. I also don't like flashing my "headlights". I'm a human Popsicle, so just imagine me in a cold room. No one needs to see my perkiness! That is where Boob-eez comes in to help! 
*Disclaimer: I was sent these products by Boob-eez free of charge in exchange for a review. I was not otherwise paid or endorsed. All opinions expressed are my own.* 

Where did Boob-eez get its beginning?

Boob-eez was created by a young girl coming to terms with her body. She wanted to make boobs "easier". Let's face it, we ladies have all had those moments. In my younger years, I started wearing only padded bras to avoid.... pointiness from showing. But of course those bras are all underwire ones. Which is not always very comfortable. 

In my later years, I now avoid wearing bras unless I know I need to go somewhere or I know I'm going to have someone stopping by. Mostly because of my back pains being so fickle. More than once have I opened the door to receive a package or because the neighbors came knocking - just to have to keep my arms folded to hide that undignified fact that I was missing an undergarment. Oh that I had the Headlight Hiders on hand for those days.... 

I have always avoided wearing those camisole tops with built in bras. At least, I wouldn't wear them unless I wore other shirts with them. Or even wore an actual bra underneath... Sports bras, while working out, have to be worn only at home. All because I can't have my headlights showing. 

We have all been there at some point. 

And that is where this young girl brought us a revolutionary product. She designed the Headlight Hiders that are better than stick-ons. More comfortable. Dependable. And best of all? Invisible! They are made to lay flush with your skin so that they don't show. There are two sizes to choose from: 6 or 8CM. 

They fit perfectly! Went on easily, didn't peel off as easily (which I was happy for) and laid flush so that you couldn't see them. With these, I can wear my workout bra without worrying about an outline. I can wear more form fitting tops without the need of a bra. When would I want this most of all? How about the days when my back pain has me not wanting to wear a bra at all! 
But she didn't stop there. She created bras and tops too. The bandeau, bralette and stick-on bra are to give you coverage from underneath. While the cami, racerback layering tank and tube top keep it smooth, but fashionable on the outside! I couldn't believe how soft and comfortable they felt. I could live in them and never wear anything else... 
I really enjoyed the racerback bralette. The material is incredibly soft. Even more so than the Barely There brand I've tried before. It does not hug too tightly, but stretches perfectly with me. Even on my worse days, I think I can manage wearing this one. 
The front-to-back cami is of the same material as the bralette. And I love it! My personal style wouldn't mind it being slightly bigger, though it would work under a loose top just fine. I wear confidence as boldly as I can, but tight-fitting tops still give me pause as I try to loose the baby blubber. This would be the best tank to wear for working out, sleeping - everything, every day! 

I sent the lace back bandeau to my fashionista sister. I love getting her feedback on things like this.  She's in her late teens and is quite the diva, so she knows all about style.

These products were all One Size. I'm currently and XL (to give you an idea of the models size). 

Where can you find them near you? 

I was surprised to find 3 stores here in Texas that offered Boob-eez products. I think more stores need to carry them. You can see where they are offered near you, by clicking on the Locator tab

Ready to win??

I have two great ways for you to enjoy your very own Boob-eez products. They are partnering with me to host a giveaway of 3 pairs of Boob-eez products. They are also allowing you all to get 20% off your entire order!  The code to use for the discount is: FOREVER2018 and is good all the way until December 21, 2018! So be sure to check them out. Especially if you need gifts for the younger ladies in your life. These are perfect, practical and inspirational. Good luck!

Christmas is only 44 days away!

That is less than two months, for those not good with bigger numbers. Have you gotten something for everyone on your list yet? 

Since we can't afford to purchase gifts, I have gone through the remaining things I had stored in a bin back when I was working, or at least still had extra money. I had a few things to cover several of mine and my husbands family members. On top of that, I have been trying to make gifts. I'm not the best at crafting, but definitely getting better! I impressed myself with 2 of the most recent ones I made. 

As usual, Pinterest is my best friend in finding ideas. 

I had some canvases left over that I pulled out. Ideas came to me, but not all could be carried out. This one that I did manage to do, blends patriotism with a Bible verse.  
Then I thought the Snoopy ones looked cute. Remember the good old days of watching A Charlie Brown Christmas every year?? Okay, so October was a little early to be doing so. But Pinterest doesn't pay attention to the month. They just take cues on recent searches. Snoopy took me a while.
Gave me a migraine too. I'm one of those crafters who sorta hunches over her work as she scrutinizes each painstaking detail. I blame the perfectionist in me. With my neck being so messed up right now, that leads to headaches and migraines and trails pain down to a point in between my shoulder blades.
Note to self - don't do the whole project at once next time....

Projects take me so much longer to complete lately. The pain and migraines are ever present and keep me feeling exhausted all the time. I started physical therapy, however, so I'm hoping it will help as time goes on. My oldest child turned 10 last month - so party planning took over for a while! I was also working on my steampunk projects. My oldest daughter will be having surgery just before Thanksgiving. A few days later, my youngest turns two! Then we have Thanksgiving... which will bring my Mother and Sister-in-law down to celebrate with us.  Whoo!
Some days I question how I will make it through the holidays, though. So much to do in so little time! And time seems to be flying by faster and faster. Before I know it, I will have to be deep cleaning and packing as we move in... about 3 months... *shudder here*

I'm hoping to get something like this made next. Or to make a hanging picture frame collection of some sort. I have the Mason jar lids still. Just have to get the pictures to put in them....  
What do you have going on? Are you ready for the holidays?

Turning an Everyday Outing Into an Adventure! (+ giveaway)

Sparking a child's imagination is very important to me. I think all children need creativity and free thinking to be a part of their daily lives. To hold fast to the wonder of everything around them. And best of all is when something simple triggers it. Which is exactly where Kidorable comes to mind. 
*Disclaimer: I was sent this product in exchange for my honest review. I was not otherwise paid or endorsed and most definitely not told what to say. All opinions are my own.*

I have the greatest pleasure in showcasing one of Kidorable's amazing products. And at the end of the review, I encourage you to sign up for the giveaway they are hosting through me! You will have the chance to win your own awesome kids umbrella! Cool, right?? So let's get to it! 
What makes them so wonderful? 

Kidorable brings everyday products with a magical twist to spark creative thinking and let the imagination run wild. Be it while a child holds an umbrella in the rain or wearing their favorite character set of winter gear, there is something out there for every child to enjoy. As I was looking over their website, my daughter happened to see the Mermaid Umbrella and she loved it!
Of course, when I was checking it out, it was sold out. But that just goes to show how popular it is among the little ladies out there! It has such a cute underwater design that goes all the way around. The mermaid princess is in the center, with her tail topping the umbrella. There will be no mistaking my little dreamer, no matter how many other umbrella-covered kiddos are around. Hers will always stand out! 
Unique designs to be distinguished!

One thing I love about these? The uncommon designs! Not just the part that covers her head, but all the way to the handle. This one has such a cute little sea horse for her little hands to grip. It fits perfectly in her grasp. 
Down here in Texas, we have been battling rain every week for the past couple months. We have a giant umbrella, but the little lady often gets stuck outside its reach since the boys and I take longer strides. This way, she can keep covered without having to run to keep up!  

But the rain isn't the only thing she needs the cover for. The sun can be brutal as well. Blinding rays that freckle the skin and heat you up. This umbrella protects her from it all! 

But that is not all they offer! 

Umbrellas may be the main draw, but they don't stop there. They have full rain gear sets that include galoshes and rain coats. Your child can be covered from head to toe as they venture outside. They also have winter sets which come with gloves, hats and scarves. The backpacks are absolutely adorable too! And then the towels - to bring fun and imagination after the bath! Wherever possible, I think we should spark that creativity in their minds. And it can very easily start with something as simple as these everyday items.

Where can you get one? 

Besides their website, they also sell on Amazon! I love this option since they are Prime eligible. Which is perfect since Christmas is right around the corner and they make fantastic gifts! Especially the winter sets. Here in Texas, it doesn't get truly cold enough until December and January anyhow. 

Would you like to try to win one?

Kidorable would like to give one lucky winner their own kids umbrella! So I have set up a giveaway below. Remember to let me know what style you want to win! And "May the odds be ever in your favor!"

Do You Want a Free Mommy Hook?? (giveaway included)

I recently wrote a review of The Mommy Hook. This fantastic little treasure has been quite a blessing to our family. My husband and I are often in need of a spare hand (or two). And that is exactly what The Mommy Hook is! 

*Disclaimer: I was sent these products free of charge in exchange for my honest review and to give away. I was not otherwise paid or endorsed.*

What is The Mommy Hook? 

The Mommy Hook, simply put, is the greatest stroller accessory you can find. It has so many uses! But essentially gives you an additional helping hand. With 4 kids, we need help carrying bags or water bottles all the time. They hang from the stroller or cart with ease.
"They Call Me Mr. Mommy Hook," featuring David Abels as David Abels from The Mommy Hook on Vimeo.

Who can benefit from it? 

Honestly - anyone! Whether you use it just to haul multiple bags at once (think of unloading the car after going grocery shopping) or if you have to carry bags while juggling a baby.

Where can you get yours? 

These are sold locally too! You can check here to find out where they are close to you. I saw retailers like Target, Walmart and Buy Buy Baby on there. Amazon has them as well! But if you aren't in America, don't worry! They have international sales too.

How do you win one?  

Want to win one first and see how awesome they are before buying? Well, just enter my giveaway below! Or win one to pass along as a gift to someone you know in need of an extra hand.
