My Little Pony is growing up with Equestria Girls (2 winner #giveaway)

This is a sponsored post about the My Little Pony Equestria Girls line of dolls.  Opinions are my own. Growing up, I loved My Little Pony everything.  I think that they came in third only to my Annie wig and my Cabbage Patch Kid doll.  The ponies were different- I could do so much with them including brush their hair.  They were smaller in size than a doll, so I could bring them wherever I went much easier. A few ponies and some imagination and I could fill an afternoon.  My older daughter likes MLP but hasn’t fallen in love with them.  My little one, who just turned 4? She adores MLP.  Tshirts, underwear, mini ponies,  regular ponies, videos…and to her delight…the new Equestria Girls line.

Twilight Sparkle and Sunset Shimmer arrived at our house the other evening, packaged together in one box.  Each has her own sense of style and comes with a few accessories.  There’s only one girl who can be crowned Fall Formal Princess, and only one crown in the box…your little one gets to decide who wins the title and the crown. The kids have been enjoying Sunset Shimmer and Twilight Sparkle together- they were immediately “best friends” and have been marrying all of brother’s action figures (Iron Man is quite the catch, who knew?)

(Please note- when my 8 year old says something is creepy, it’s a GOOD thing!)

Pretty Poppies for Back to School ($100 Gymboree Giveaway)

This post about Pretty Poppies for Back to School is brought to you by our fashion forward friends at Gymboree.  I don’t even think I have a lot to SAY about these pieces- I think the photos kind of speak for themselves.  Gymboree is known for quality clothing that comes in lines that mix, match and coordinate to your heart’s content.  My oldest chose this Pretty Poppies outfit specifically SO she and her little sister could match for back to school and I think she did a great job choosing pieces.


You can see that my little one has some growing to do before these fit her really well, but thanks to adjustable waist jeans, she can wear them now with no issues.  They will fit better length wise when she actually wears shoes, but hey, it’s August and we’re not back at school and the only person who wears shoes consistently in our family is my husband.

Speaking of shoes, both girls are upset that I didn’t order the adorable and glittery navy ballet flats that go with this outfit.  I promise you I would have but honestly? I couldn’t afford to include EVERYTHING! I did notice they ARE on sale when I was looking for the link to the outfit so they may just show up at the front door in the next week or so.  They really truly would be the perfect way to finish off this outfit!


I am amazed that my 8 year old is wearing jeans- and willingly.  She’s NOT a jeans girl.  But these are nice and soft, plus adjustable waist, and how can you not love the poppies on the bottom?  Too cute.  The seam that goes down the legs just gives the jeans a little extra bit of fun and she loves that.  The over-the-top-cute patent leather bow belt was a must for her.  We did not get the belt for my 4 year old because, well, she’s still learning to undo snaps on her pants and she waits way too long as it is to go to the bathroom. We dont’ need any obstacles in her way.

Little sis got the bracelet (pictured above) in lieu of the belt.  Actually, she got 2 bracelets, because my older daughter declared that it was too tight and doesn’t fit. (So there you go.  The bracelet runs small). My little one is the accessory girl in our house anyway, so she’s happy to wear 2 or 20 bracelets, necklaces and anything else she can put on her little person.


One of the things I love the very most about Gymboree is of course that they make a great quality product, which means I’m getting my money’s worth, but also…at the end of the day, they stay true to the idea that they are making clothes and fashion FOR KIDS and they design the clothes to be played in.  Sometimes I find brands forget that kids move and climb and jump and cartwheel and however else they want to move and aren’t just sitting at a desk or in a magazine shoot.  Gymboree does not forget.  My girls were MORE than happy to strike a bunch of poses to show just how much you CAN do with their fabulous new outfits.


So, now that you’ve decided that you want your children dressed just like my girls for back to school….or maybe not (…although I won’t be upset if you decide to tell me how darling they are or how cute they look.  I really won’t.), who wants to win a gift card to spend for back to school or whatever else you’d like???



One reader will win a $100 Gymboree Gift Card!

Make your laptop a touch screen laptop with APEN Touch 8

Surely I am not the only person who is so used to touch screen tablets and phones that I find myself trying to touch the screen on my laptop….only to remember that oh hey! this isn’t a touch screen laptop.  I mean, you expect kids to do it, but not adults, right? Sadly, I usually don’t realize for a few moments and attempts to use my finger that I am on my laptop.  It’s almost embarassing (but if you can’t embarass yourself on the internet, where can you embarass yourself?) but also probably not that uncommon.  When E fun  asked if I’d do a review of their new APEN Touch 8 pen, I was eager to check it out and enjoy new technology but also stop embarassing myself.  Seriously. You’d think I’d remember!


The APEN Touch 8 works with any laptop or pc that has Windows 8 installed and are less than 17 inches.  It’s super, super simple to use- plug it in and play.  The instructions are really user friendly and assembling the pen (battery and ink refill) take a moment of time and you are ready to go.  I was really amazed at how quickly we had this up and running.  There’s a slim magnetic strip with a sticker back that you can attach to the side of your laptop and that’s where you can “store” the pen when not in use.


Once you are plugged in you are ready to play!  I’ve used this pen, the kids have, and even my husband was impressed with it.  This says a lot, because he hates touch screens- says his fingers are too big and he gets frustrated quickly.  The pen gave him kind of the best of both worlds- he can use the pen but have the freedom of a touch screen in lieu of keyboarding.


See it in progress? Pretty cool, right?


Navigating your laptop isn’t all that APEN Touch 8 can help with- writing emails, signing documents (I was JUST talking with a few bloggers about how we have to do this so often with contracts and invoicing, etc!), and even draw!  It’s a pretty neat little device and for all that it can do, I think it’s priced really reasonably.

If you, like us, don’t have the budget or desire to upgrade to a touch screen laptop or PC, then the APEN Touch 8 may very well be a great option for you to try.


The APEN Touch 8 is available for $79.99 at
