Minnie Mouse Costume Review

FFR image for posts

It’s never too early to start thinking about Halloween costumes!  Wholesale Halloween Costumes has a huge line of costumes for every budget and person in your family.

Minnie 1

We received this adorable Minnie Mouse Costume for my daughter (About Minni Mouse). The package came with the dress and ears.  The costume is mostly polyester material. The headband does not have teeth on it, making it easy on your child’s head (I wore the headband myself for about a half hour and it didn’t hurt my head, either).

My daughter looks delightful and ready to have fun in this Queen of Disney costume.  She said it was comfortable and it fit her well.  The costume was easy to put on and has Velcro on the back by her neck.

You can order this costume or choose from many that Wholesale Halloween Costumes offers!

Reverie Sweet Slumber Pillow Review

FFR image for posts

 

Reverie Pillow

My husband said this is the best pillow he has every slept on!

The Sweet Slumber Pillow is 100% cotton quilted with a removable cover that is machine washable. Guess what’s in the pillow?  Nope, not feathers, it is shredded natural rubber.  Cool, right?  This fabulous pillow is hypoallergenic, anti-bacterial and dust mite resistant. Those are great assets in a pillow.

My husband claimed this pillow the second it came in the door. He has never slept well nor found a pillow that is comfortable with him.  He tends to wake up with a headache.  Since this Sweet Slumber Pillow arrived he has had minimal headaches in the morning and is sleeping much better.

Reverie also has a mattresses and linens. You can order yours today!  Click here to be taken to Reverie’s website.

**If you have an allergy to latex, I would advise against this pillow**

Matilda Jane Clothing – Ode to Shoes

FFR image for posts

It’s that time of year again where we are thinking about summer clothes and switching out wardrobes, but if your weather is anything like the Chicagoland you may have experience snow showers early this morning! So we were digging out the winter clothes again. I know I wore my woolly socks and ear muff headband!

FFR Matilda Jane Dress_3

My youngest daughter received a cute little dress from Matilda Jane Clothing, called Ode to Shoes Tank Dress (Retail $50). It’s a brightly colored tank dress that works perfectly with a pair of leggings.

I really like Matilda Jane clothing. It’s well made, the fabric is thick, not thin cheap stuff. It arrives in a neat package making the receiver feel special from the onset.

This dress is perfect for casual wear or even for church. I would have preferred it be longer but realize longer length dresses are hard to find these days.

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!

Printed Maxi Dress #SpringAtKohl's

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:

RUUM Kid's 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:

RUUM Kid's 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!

To check out all of their prom dress selection visit: http://www.jenjenhouse.com/Prom-Dresses-c18/

Kmart Layaway Dance Video

This is a sponsored post. I am a Kmart blogger, though all opinions are my own.

You’ll have fun watching this mash-up of customers doing the Kmart Layaway Dance! Dare we say it’s the latest dance craze? I know it caught my sons’ attention as they headed to bed! If you’re wondering what it is about Kmart Layaway that makes people spontaneously breakout in catchy dance moves, you should probably keep reading this. At Kmart, Layaway doesn’t start and end with the holidays. You can use Kmart Layaway all year round for celebrations such as birthdays, re-decorating or baby gifts. In addition, Kmart Layaway is available online and in stores. It’s simple: pick out the times you want, start with a down payment, make payments every two weeks (online or in store) and take your items home with you after your final payment (cue: Layaway dance)!

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 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! 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!

TopCashback.com Plus $500 PayPal Cash Giveaway

This is a sponsored campaign with Mums the Word Network and TopCashback.com. All opinions are my own.

I had never heard of TopCashback.com until recently. It is a rebates site aimed to save consumers in the U.S. and Canada money on their online shopping. They give all the commission rates back to the consumer and their site membership is completely free to use and has a no-fee cash out policy. No minimum threshold on payouts either. Gotta love that.

How Does it Work?

When you visit a site referred by TopCashback, TopCashback receives a referral commission rate traffic and sales they drive to a store’s website. This is where they do not keep any money but give it back to you.


Visit TopCashback
