Weekend Wrap Up

November 5, 2012

I am exhausted. This weekend was a whirlwind.

Friday evening my son’s school had their fall festival and I volunteered the trunk of my car for the trunk or treat portion of the festival. Basically I was required to sit in my trunk and hand out candy as children came by.

By the way...does anyone know why Mike and Ike broke up?

Left the fall festival and headed to the grocery store with the Mr. in tow. Always nice to have him tag along on those trips. Came home and went to bed because I had to get up bright and early to help Trina with a fashion show that she was putting on.

The clothes were sponsored by the Gap and were fabulous. Such amazingly cute clothes for kids this season.

Bernetta ripped the runway as the pregger model. Sorry I didn’t grab a photo of her dressed up but her makeup is fierce here.

I even got a chance to walk the runway as well. Here are the babies and I before runway time

Addison decided to have a mini meltdown literally minutes before it was time to go on. Here I am giving her a little pep talk, which translates into promises of purple popsicles.

Thank you Dea for this photo!!

A little before show prep

The show was a total success. The kids did an awesome job. If you can imagine the amount of work that went into coordinating something with 25 kids and borrowed clothes and shoes…yeah.

Congratulations to Trina for a job well done! Make sure you stop by her blog sometime this week. I’m sure she will have the official photos so you can see all of the cuteness.

Sunday I laid low, cooked some dinner and thoroughly enjoyed my additional hour. Did you?

How was your weekend?

P.S. from Aeropostale Shopping Haul

October 30, 2012

Last week I had the awesome opportunity to host an event at P.S. for Aeropostale. This store is a version of Aeropostale that is geared toward elementary school aged children. I often frequent the store to purchase clothing for my son and when I was in there for the event I noticed that sizing starts at a 4 which means I can now shop there for both of my babies….which also means my sweet baby is growing up *weeps*

I am a fan of the brand because the clothing is fun, colorful, age appropriate and washes and maintains very well…not to mention the clothing is extremely well priced.

Such stylish clothing for boys

A few Atlanta bloggers joined me shopping. How pretty are they?

Tiffini, Kymberly and Erika

From now until Nov. 11, 2012 the brand has been so kind to offer an exclusive 20% discount that can be used online and in stores for your shopping pleasure. This discount coupled with the already reasonable prices….Christmas presents anyone?!!!

Print or use online until 11/11

Want to see what I got? Check out the video. Hard to believe I got all of these things for under $100!!

I was provided compensation regarding this post. However, all opinions are solely mine...but you already knew this!!

$75 Zutano Children’s Clothing Giveaway

October 2, 2012

I posted earlier about my opportunity to get up close and personal with children’s clothing brand Zutano while in New York for Blogher.

Upon my return I was sent these lovely pieces for Addison.

Her shoes aren't Zutano

She is wearing: Pool Toddler Boddice Jacket, and Fuschia Toddler Skinny Legging (shirt is from the spring line and is no longer online)

What I love most about this brand is how colorful and fun it is. The pieces are easily mixed and matched allowing you to create a number of outfits from just a few pieces. From leggings/socks to nursery decor, Zutano offers fun options for today’s child.

The wonderful folks over at Zutano are giving one of you, my fab readers $75 to spend with their brand. Clothing is for boys and girls and range in size from Preemie to 4T

Where I Partied at BlogHer..Zutano Edition

August 21, 2012

I was honored to once again be invited by Momtrends to a private party held during BlogHer. This party was at F.A.O.Schwarz.


This time I got the opportunity to learn more about the uber cute Zutano baby line that will soon be at your local Target.

The crowd was small and intimate, the perfect setting to  hear from the founder of the company and his family regarding their passion for the business and how delivering orders on a bicycle turned into a major children’s clothing brand.

This bike was used to make deliveries when the company was started

 

Presentation about the start of the company

 

Zutano has some of the cutest baby things. I think the issue with some of children’s clothing today is designers are making children’s clothing miniature versions of our apparel. I am guilty of dressing my daughter as a mini me at times but it is so refreshing see how Zutano merges colorful baby centric designs with more modern styles that mix just the right amount of tradition with today’s trends.

Here are is a look at some of their adorable childrens clothing. If you are having baby fever look away!!

 

I ordered my daughter this cute jacket and scarf . Can’t wait until it gets cool enough for her to wear it.

Are you familiar with Zutano?  Make sure to look out for them on the Web, Twitter, Facebook and at Target near you coming soon.

Where I Partied While at BlogHer- Lands End’ University Edition

August 15, 2012

While at BlogHer not only did I learn something but I also got the opportunity to learn AND party with Lands’ End.

I was invited by Momtrends to attend Lands’ End University where we talked all things “Back to School” concerning clothing, backpacks, and there was even a little pampering for the Mamas.

We’ll talk about the children first…as always.

So. If you have children you may know all too well about the worn out knees in their jeans.

Like what is that?

No lie, in the span of one month we had to replace 8 pair of jeans because my son wore them out. Doing what? Let me know when you get an answer because I have no idea. The first stop on my tour of Lands End was learning about their Iron Knee pants…cause I am not in the market to keep buying the same articles of clothing numerous times this year. Not. At. ALL

Lands’ End has something called Iron Knee Pants
