Babiators provided me with the information and product samples for this post, however all opinions are my own.

Kids need real protection to keep their eyes safe from UV damage, and Babiators offer that protection. (more…)

For a while now, I’ve been hearing about this grocery chain called ALDI – mainly that they sell really good quality meat for really low prices.

Journeying through “Amazinghood” with Dreft

This post and giveaway were made possible by iConnect and Dreft. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.

It seriously seems like just a few months ago that I was pregnant with my daughter, getting everything ready for the “big day.” I remember a big part of prep was washing all of her new clothes with Dreft.
