be you. be true for girls (giveaway 2 winners)

little miss pink is all about her “be” messages. She hopes to make you smile, empower & inspire you to be you & be true.

This line of tshirts and hats is, in a word, awesome.  Girl power in a fun and spunky way, with a huge array of colorful and sweet designs, all with one underlying theme: to be you and be true.  No negativity, no suggestive messages- and not just for kids!  Cute, simple and positive, and oh so much fun.  Busy B got 2 shirts from be you. be true- I think one was meant for Baby B but it was a 5/6 and way too big for her so lucky big sister…she’s got 2!!  be funky is the perfect shirt for my girly, who’s always dressing the way she wants, ignoring fashion rules and doing what she feels looks good (I hope she stays true to that forever!!)

Kids Summer Fun: Paper Jamz *new* Pro Series Mic (Giveaway)

Paper Jamz has new Pro Series Mics out and they are so much fun! I don’t know about you, but I *AM* a rockstar…at least when I’m driving in the car or in the shower.  Perfect tone, perfect tune, perfect pitch…so long as no one else is around.  That’s why I like the Pro Series Mic so much- it kind of makes me sound all kinds of awesome, and not just when no one  is around to hear me.  I can sound like a rock star with the touch of a button.  How fun is that?  My kids of course, have been rocking out like crazy, although not with clothing on so I haven’t gotten a good video (but I will share when I do!!).  I don’t know why they like to rock out and have dance parties in their underwear, but they do.

 Pro Series Microphones use real-time, cutting-edge technology called Perfect Pitch™ , which allows kids (and adults!) of all ages to sing with rockstar-quality vocals. Now you can so you can sing along effortlessly with your favorite band!

Unlike other Paper Jamz products that let users make music with a touch enabled-print, the Pro Microphone is a real mic, which comes included with a small 4×2 inch box to be worn on your belt. The box acts as both an amplifier and tuner, and uses pitch detection to transform the quality of your voice as you sing, with five different modes: Solo/Duet, Auto Harmony, Auto Vibrato, Chorus, and Auto. Once you’re done rocking out, simply connect the box to your computer and use the Paper Jamz to load the box with more of your favorite music from iTunes for continued play. Additionally, the Paper Jamz website has hundreds (soon to be thousands!) of songs to download, too! [click to continue…]

Play Money Coins & Bills Deluxe Set (Giveaway)

Learning money is hard for many kids, my oldest included.  Coins in particular are very confusing, especially since the larger coins aren’t always the greatest values.  Since my oldest will be needing to bring coins for part of her school supplies for first grade, and will be eating lunch at school this year, I thought that we should have some practice here at home, with play money that actually resembles the money we use every day. The Play Money Coins & Bills Deluxe Set from Educational Insights  is a wonderful play money set that will be  a teaching tool I use for many years to come- and something my kids are loving for playtime!!

Cool Cuts 4 Kids (Giveaway- 2 winners)

Have you ever gone into a place to get your child’s haircut and wanted to walk back out?  The adult sized chairs, capes, the sounds, the smells- things that seem like no big deal to us can often be overwhelming for kids.  Cool Cuts 4 Kids offers a salon JUST for kids- where the chairs are actually cars and trucks and planes, and the stylists are not only trained and skilled in making haircuts look awesome, but also in making those haircuts look awesome while interacting with a toddler, a preschooler, a special needs child.  That’s something that stands out and makes me want to head straight over for haircuts ASAP!   Of course, after I REchecked the store locator (I swore when I checked that they have one in CT but I was wrong, they do not)…I can’t bring the kids, unless we’re away on vacation.  No worries, though, I sent my gift card to a friend and she was more than happy to get some cuts for her kids AND some extra hair product since she had the gift cards to use!  She LOVES Cool Cuts 4 Kids and was raving to me just how kid friendly and fun the environment is, and how skilled the stylists are- I guess her son has a cowlick and she’s always nervous to have his hair cut by someone new but they did great.

Alyssa Milano stays fit during pregnancy- how?

Apparently, one of the ways Alyssa Milano (Oh, how I adored Who’s The Boss?) stays fit during her pregnancy is in part due to wearing FitFlop Florettas.  These are gorgeous!!

I guess Alyssa Milano has the right mindset for fitness.  While going to and from her yoga classes while pregnant, she wore these Florettas regularly.   I may just have to try this! [click to continue…]
