Made of 69% cotton, 28% nylon, & 3% spandex, you need to wash this dress in cold water and lay it on a flat surface to dry.

This dress is perfect for an active child in the summertime and very fun.  My daughter loves the colorful tiers. There are butterflies, bikes, flowers, shoes and bird on this adorable dress.  It is topped off with little yellow ruffled sleeves.

Kohl’s Spring Fashion #SpringAtKohls

I participated in a campaign for Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Kohl’s. I received a gift card as a thank you for participating.

It’s finally spring and we are all excited for the warmer weather and the lighter clothing, right? I desperately need to update my wardrobe! Kohl’s Spring Fashion Hangout provides great tips on what trends to be in the “know” about right now. From the color pink to dresses and roll-cuffed denim they share it all! I’m a huge fan of pink and find myself wearing pink nail polish and lipstick so I am completely ready for this year’s spring fashion! This season it will be easy to take Kohl’s’ advice and wear pink since I am already a fan of the color! It has been a while since I bought clothing so I am excited to go shopping at Kohl’s for some new spring fashion wear, particularly a fit and flare dress or skirt!

Watch the Kohl’s Spring Fashion Hangout and tell me what trends will you be wearing this season?

RUUM Kids Spring Fashion

FFR image for posts

Spring is here and with that means a change of wardrobe…that is if the temperatures start increasing, which is slowly happening here in the Chicago area! I love being able to dress our kids in nice clothes for when we go out to church, to Grandma’s or some place special. RUUM Kids spring fashion is here and our almost eight year old daughter is wearing a sweet little heart dress (would have been great for Valentine’s Day too!) in the collage below:

FFR RUUM Kids Dress Collage

It needs a little sweater for the cold start to spring we are experiencing. It is very lightweight and sheer, but does not need a slip as it has a built in lining.

RUUM Kid's Dressy Sweater

I think my daughter would also have liked this jeweled skater dress:

This embroidered flower dress is definitely a spring choice, perhaps for Easter:

RUUM Kid's Embroidered Flower Dress

For the boys there are also some snazzy looking spring fashion outfits, like this vintage stripe polo shirt coupled with a pair of khakis or chino pants:

RUUM Kid's Vintage Stripe Polo

RUUM Kid's Chino Pant

One of our son’s loves a dress jacket so I had to include this dressy blazer:

Then there’s always the nice dress shirt, which is my oldest son’s preference:

RUUM Kid's Bright Stripe Shirt

What does your child’s spring fashion look like?

Right now RUUM Kid’s has a 30% off sale on all their spring fashion items! Check it out!

Welcome Prom Season with Jen Jen House

jj

Prom season is here and with it comes the madness of trying to find the perfect dress. While in store shopping can be fun, the ease of online shopping is slowly starting to take over.

In a sea of sweetheart style necklines and puffy pink skirts, JenJenHouse.com offers unique and affordable prom dresses. From classic Grecian style dresses to ball gowns, they have something to suit every fashion sense.

prom2

I’ve personally found that most online dress shops don’t exactly offer a decent sizing chart, or a general idea as to how the clothing will fit. I was pleased to find that JenJen House isn’t like that. They give clear directions on how to measure yourself to get a perfect fit.

The wide variety of dresses available on the website ensures that every girl, whether she has dark hair or light, will have a dress that matches her hair and skin tone.

prom

I’m really loving the Grecian styles that they have. After studying Greek history last semester, I’ve been endlessly fascinated by the Greek culture and their way of life. It’s awesome to see how ancient fashion still inspires our culture today!

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!

Carter's Spring Collection Collage_!

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!

Piggy Paint Review

FFR IMAGE

pg1

I, like most Moms, am always looking for healthier options for my daughter.  I always thought there wouldn’t be a replacement for “regular” nail polish.  Well, I’m happy to share Piggy Paint with you!  This is a Non-toxic, almost odorless, hypoallergenic, and eco & kid friendly. 

MACT-award_PiggyPaint

 

Piggy Paint is water-based, dries quickly and is safe to use during pregnancy! Piggy Paint suggests using a blow drier on your nails for about a minute for maximum chip resistance.

Let’s talk colors! Piggy Paint has over 30 colors!  They also have their own specially formulated nail polish remover and nail stickers!  They have great sets for holiday or any occasion!  Piggy Paint even has nail polish for your favorite pup!  

pp2

My daughter and I had a great time with Piggy Paint. She was happy to be a big girl and I was happy it was safe for her! 

Piggy Paint is great for Birthday gifts and don’t forget the Holidays are coming!!

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!

Homecoming Dresses

Homecoming Dresses

School is back in session in many areas, which means fall is just around the corner. With fall comes football practice, football games and homecoming. If you children old enough, you may have a daughter who is planning attending the homecoming dance and will need to purchase a homecoming dress. DressFirst has some very cute styles that are sure to tickle her fashion sense.

Princess Sweatheart

One of my daughters thought this dress was nice:

Homecoming Dresses 3
Sleeveless

Sleeveless homecoming dresses

A-line with Sleeves Short Length

Homecoming Dresses


A-line Long Length

Homecoming Dresses 2

Prices vary but on average are in the $100-$150 range. There’s quite a few “baby doll” styles that young ladies can choose from, whether they like lots of frills or keeping it simple, these homecoming dresses are sure to please most girls. We, moms, on the other hand might cringe a little that our little girls are becoming grown up enough to wear plunging necklines and strapless dresses for a night out with their favorite guy. Sigh.
