Carter’s Baby and Kid Up to 50% Off Sale Plus $50 Gift Card Giveaway!

I participated in this program on behalf of Carter’s and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own.

Carter's Spring Coupon

It is hard to think about spring clothing when the temperatures are still in the negatives and I am wearing triple layers, but being optimistic and knowing spring is just around the corner, literally only 20 days away, I did just that this week. I shopped Carter’s Baby and Kid Up to 50% Off Sale, which runs from February 18 through March 4, 2014. So only a few days left! Use Carter’s store locator to find a store near you!

Clothing items from Carter’s spring collection is up to 50% off in store, and the above coupon provides an extra 20% off your in-store purchase of $40 or more. Plus you’ll earn $10 Carter’s Rewards for your next visit just for spending $40 or more. How cool is that? Socks are buy one get one free and we always seem to need socks here at our house!

Carter’s Baby and Kid Up to 50% Off Sale is the perfect time to stock up on great play wear essentials or church clothing, which was my goal for our little boys. It’s sad because our little boys are the only ones I could shop for because our youngest daughter is too big for the girls clothing. Everyone is growing up! For those of you who still have little girls and babies Carter’s spring collection features adorable items for them too, including graphic tees, polos, woven shirts, shorts, cardigans, tunics & leggings and cotton dresses!

To get started on your spring wish list, take a look at Carter’s Spring into Pink collection for girls and Little Mate collection for boys. Both collections are very cute!

Just in Time for Christmas….RUUM Kids

FFR IMAGE

Christmas is just around the corner and I am still working on my Christmas shopping list. This past week my youngest daughter and I went shopping at Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg. It’s been a long time since we’ve gone to the mall. We had a lot of fun! We were clothes shopping for Blondie since she needs a few more pants for winter and we had a gift card to RUUM Kids (pronounced “Room” and formerly 77Kids).

FFR RUUM Kids Sign

RUUM Kids had a 40% off sale going on so we took advantage of those savings.

FFR RUUM Kids 40 OFF

Blondie is seven and she is a girly-girl, which is amazing since she is smack dab in the middle of four boys! Her taste in clothing steered her towards this sparkly holiday dress:

FFR RUUM Kids Sparkly Dress

Gotta love her style! It’s beautiful but I had to tell her no because she has plenty of dresses and this dress though it was 30% off was a bit out of our budget right now. We were shopping for winter pants.

That led us to the 40% off rack. We ended up getting two pairs of sparkly pants. I thought it was a nice compromise for her. She got her sparkle and glitter and I got her warm clothes!

FFR RUUM Kids Sparkly Pants

She also found a sparkly butterfly t-shirt and hair gold band that coordinates really well with both colors of pants she choose. Nearly all of RUUM Kids clothing coordinates well with each other.

I also found a couple of things for our younger boys that I put away for their Christmas gifts.

FFR Christmas Gifts from RUUM Kids

All and all Blondie and I really enjoyed our day out (we went grocery shopping at Mariano’s too!). Blondie loved the VIP treatment she received while shopping at RUUM Kids – choice of a candy treat (RUUM Kids employees asked me first before giving anything to her). When we checked out Blondie was asked if she wanted her own bag, which of course she did, and then employee personalized it by putting her name on it! Blondie loved it!

FFR RUUM Kids at Woodfield Mall

When we got home Blondie modeled her clothes for me. Everything fit perfectly.

We were very happy with our RUUM Kids purchases.

RUUM Kids has lots of gift ideas including headphone hats ($19.50) and texting gloves ($9.50) for the hard to buy for tweens, and layering pieces with coordinating accessories for all ages. RUUM sizes range from newborn to age 14. Find RUUM Kids on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to day for holiday specials. Right now they have a 25% off code for online just for this weekend only.

Do you buy your children clothes for Christmas?

Cool City Threads and Giveaway!

Faith and Family Reviews received the following product in exchange for writing a review. While we consider it a privilege to receive products to review, our reviews are our honest opinion and thoughts of the product.

It’s getting colder and packing away the summer clothes is on my to-do list, as well as doing inventory of our children’s clothing to see what they need, what they have grown out of and what needs to be replaced. We just bought socks this week! I detest socks so we do not replace or wear them in the summer. Socks are so hard to keep paired in this family. Imagine 20 socks each time we all wear a pair!

Clothing makes for nice Christmas gifts too. Our five year old received a gift set recently from City Threads, which has a wide selection of cool weather clothing just for kids!

Here’s some quick info on their line of clothing:

– girls and boys everyday collection
– spans sizes 0 to 14
– known for twists on American style favorites
– includes tees, hoodies, cords, leggings, twill pants, underwear, pjs and hats

City Threads is a made in the USA children’s clothing company, making it a real American apparel company. It is family owned by a husband and wife team, Shayna Samuels and Joe Willis. Prices reflect quality. It is more expensive to produce clothing here in the U.S. than it is to outsource it to China, the Philippines or Mexico, but being made here creates jobs for Americans. City Threads clothing is well-made. They have children’s clothing for baby, girls and boys, as well as a big sister, big brother line for kids ages 0 through 14.

Unfortunately, I have not washed his shirt or boxers yet, but I am inclined to think it will wash up quite nicely from the feel of the material. I’ll update this post when I get them in the wash. I asked “Nook” to save his shirt for “nice” a.k.a. going out because he already has far too many “farm” shirts!

City Threads Football tee

Below you will see “Nook” modeling up a storm in his City Threads 2Fer Football in Air Denim Blue w/Football Scoreboard Sleeves 100% cotton (retail $40.50) and Boxer Briefs in Elf Green 100% Cotton Baby Rib (retail $10.50) – we thought they were short shorts at first! ;)

I told “Nook” to pose in his City Threads and this is what he did:

City Threads Collage

Quite the ham, eh?

We really like these two items from City Threads. It’s a great line of children’s clothing. You can find City Threads on Twitter and on Facebook. For your information, City Threads offers FREE shipping on all orders over $40.

Dots on Tots

Faith and Family Reviews received the following product in exchange for writing a review. While we consider it a privilege to receive products to review, our reviews are our honest opinion and thoughts of the product.

Dots on Tots is a company striving to provide high quality organic cotton hats for babies and toddlers.  Skin sensitivities are becoming more and more common among babies.  By using organic materials, babies’ skin can be protected and parents can have peace of mind.  Dots on Tots features innovative hat designs for girls and boys all made from natural, certified-organic cotton.  They specialize in ear flap hats to protect babies from outdoor elements such as cold and wind, as well as providing protection from ear, nose, and throat infections.

DotsonTots1

My daughter had the pleasure of wearing Dots on Tots’ organic cotton Ear Protection flaphat. The natural, eco-friendly material was ultra soft and very lightweight.  It’s perfect for Fall right now.  It keeps her head nice and warm without overheating.  The ear flaps fit securely over her ears, but were not too tight to where she was trying to pull them off.  It has a nice velcro closure under the chin that stayed secure.  She felt very comfortable in it.

DotsonTots2

We always go for walks in the stroller and my daughter tries to fall asleep, but sometimes she wakes up from the cars passing by or the dogs barking in the neighborhood.  I noticed these noises did not bother her while she was wearing the hat, and she actually napped longer!

DotsonTots3

Dots on Tots also sells Noise Reduction Hats, which include special inserts for the ear flaps to reduce outside noises.  These would be great for sporting events or any high crowd level attractions.  Dots on Tots hats come in a variety of styles, sizes, and colors.  Their materials are very soft and of high quality.  What a great product and company!

Kwickeye Review

This is a sponsored post.

What is Kwickeye?

Kwickeye is a social platform that lets you follow products/services that friends want for their kids and also makes it easy and fun to surprise moms and kids with the things they love!

Kwickeye has a “quick add”, or “Kwickadd” as they like to call it, button that is very easy to install, much like Hootsuite’s or Wishlist’s, simply drag it to your bookmark toolbar and voila! it’s installed. This makes it convenient to add products you like from any online store to your Kwicklist. Your Kwicklist enables friends and family to see the products on your list and allows them to comment, provide recommendations or opinions or maybe even purchase the product for an upcoming gift! You can also receive surprise notifications of an anonymous gift!

Kwickeye logo

Kwickeye was founded by a mom – Gayathri Santhanam, an entrepreneur with technology background. She has two adorable kids, Aadit(6) and Anishka(3). She lives in the San Francisco BayArea. The site was featured on CNBC as one of the most promising startups globally.

You can find Kwickeye on Facebook here.

My Kwickeye Review

Kwickeye has a wide variety of products displayed on their site. From clothes, books, toys to organizational tools for mom – I found a fabulous daily organizer from Pottery Barn on that I would love to put in my office. I also found eco-friendly clay, Pure (organic snack bars) and sweet clothing for children.

I like the idea of Kwickeye and can see how helpful it would be to busy moms, moms with family close by and far away and be a general help to moms who attend a lot of birthday parties. Moms and kids could just look up their friend’s lists and pick a cool gift based on their Kwicklist. Eliminating unnecessary gifts and returns. Bonus!

Halo SleepSack

Faith and Family Reviews received the following product in exchange for writing a review. While we consider it a privilege to receive products to review, our reviews are our honest opinion and thoughts of the product.

Having the opportunity to try the Halo SleepSack could not have come at a better time.  Up until about a week ago, my three month old daughter could not fall asleep without being swaddled.  Last week, though, she started kicking off the thin blanket I had swaddled her in and started waking up because she was cold.  She also rolls a lot in her sleep, so the swaddle would come undone.  The Halo SleepSack became my lifesaver!

Halo1

The Halo SleepSack is basically a wearable blanket.  It has no sleeves, so it can easily be worn over your baby’s sleepwear comfortably.  The arm holes are the perfect size, not too snug and not too large.  The SleepSack comes in a variety of sizes and styles.  My daughter will definitely be able to wear the size Small for a very long time.  It’s roomy enough for her to still kick and move her body without it affecting her sleep.  My favorite feature of the Halo SleepSack is that it has an inverted zipper.  You can only appreciate this feature if you are lucky enough to change a diaper in the middle of the night!  Since it zips from the top down, you only have to unzip part way to change a diaper without completely disrupting your baby’s sleep.  The material is lightweight so your baby will not overheat, and the prints are adorable!  The best part is that it is machine washable.  I plan on buying another one so I have a spare when this one is in the wash.

Halo2

I absolutely love the Halo SleepSack.  I use it as a “sleeping cue” for my daughter.  When I put it on her she knows naptime or bedtime is approaching.

Halo3

Halo Innovations’ mission is to help babies sleep safely.  They have definitely achieved this goal with the SleepSack.  Go to their website to see a variety of products they offer for the many different sleep stages of a baby.  They also have some great tips on safe sleep habits for your child.  Remember “Back is Best” when putting your baby to sleep!

Back to School with Old Navy #myONstyle @OldNavy




Back to school season is here already, can you believe it? I still have shop to for school supplies but I did take one of our children, our third oldest daughter shopping at Old Navy as a treat and she needed more immediate things than the rest. Old Navy has their back to school promotion going on right now in all U.S. stores – $10 and under – from 8/3 thru 8/14. Old Navy is also inviting parents to come into stores to take a picture of their kids rocking their favorite Old Navy back to school looks in front of the store’s Step and Repeat!

FFR Old Navy Gift Card-edit
Old Navy Gift Card – Accepted via my iPhone since our printer is not working!

I have to admit we headed for the clearance section first. Not only did the bright colors attract my daughter but we wanted to make the most of our limited budget. It would have been easy to spend it all on one or two items, but instead we came out with eight things! Not too shabby, eh?

Old Navy Omi in Children's Section-edit

My daughter is still growing, as a matter of fact she’s taller than me by a couple inches, not saying much since I am only 5’3. I say that because we now have to shop in the ladies or women’s section just so we can get the height part to fit her. We did sneak a peek at the girls section to get a feel for what was available for my youngest daughter. The girls section was tucked all the way back in the left hand corner of the store, but very easy to find.

FFR Old Navy Bright Shorts
She loved these shorts, but wished they were longer or pants!

FFR Old Navy Clothes-edit
O with her clothes selection – 2 dresses, 5 pairs of socks, including horse socks and a pair of black leggings.

Old Navy Kids Section-edit

Don’t forget Old Navy’s Back to School promotion – $10 and under – and consider getting your kids to show of their back to school fashion style in front of the store’s Step and Repeat! After you upload your photo, enter to the Multiply Your Sweet Style here: www.nick.com/OldNavy! It includes an Old Navy $1000 shopping spree, $500 cash to play in L.A and a shopping experience with Jennette McCurdy and Ariana Grande from Nickelodeon’s Sam and Cat!
