The Swiss Colony Review and Giveaway

The Swiss Colony Review and Giveaway

The Swiss Colony is one of my all time favorite places for Meats, Cheeses, and Candy. Seriously, there is something for every one there. I thought why waste time on Easter Sunday preparing a meal, worrying about Candy. When companies like The Swiss Colony can send all of this straight to your front door.

It’s also easy to request a free catalog from The Swiss Colony too, and drool over the selections (that’s one of my favorite things to do.) Or just check The Swiss Colony out online too (The Cheesecake makes me drool, every, single, time.) The Swiss Colony even makes Sugar Free, and Gluten Free treats.

Sweet Pea Box Review and 4PC Box Giveaway!! Ends January 13th!

So if your like me …and I am guessing you are because your here…you like the finer things in life. Not just for you but for your family as well! AND chances are you read our shout out earlier this month for Sweet Pea Box! Go HERE if not: Sweet Pea Box Review! We LOVE this place! We received a 8 PC box for Bellamie. After we talked to the ladies who run Sweet Pea Box a few times, and they got a feel for our style we where ready to go! You will get to take a personalized style quiz! For each box you get, they ask what size your children wear and what colors and styles they like. Finally, you can get as specific as you like by adding a message to the stylist for each box you get. Tell them your child’s personality, what brands you like, anything to help their stylist create the perfect box for your child. I will tell ya that after just a few emails they had us figured out! They sent a PERFECT assortment! It reflected our family’s taste and everyone was happy with the clothing (Even Mick….now that says a lot!) We are all picky, and rarely is everyone happy…even Bellamie!! She LOVES her Pickle Peas shirt! It has a snap on Robot that she loves to play with…we love it because we can un-snap a mess…and refresh by adding a new snap on bib (or go with out!) and our slobbering baby is sparkly clean again! My personal favorite is her Gymboree outfits. She got an ADORABLE corduroy jumper and matching shirt and a super cute one piece fleecy outfit! Morgan had her favorites….”Violet and Moss”! This is a favorite brand of hers anyhow so if was a huge bonus to get TWO pieces! A cute dress with a huge bow and a skirt. Ok believe it or not that isnt all either. Now here I am unclear as to whether they follow the blog…or if it was a lucky guess…We got a 3 piece krazylegs outfit…a top, leggings and a TUTU! If you follow the BHDD social media, you will notice Bellamie is in tutu’s often. Her mom, my daughter Morgan, was in ballet for years! So of course Bellamie has a collection of tutu’s! Well Played Sweet Pea Box….Well Played! We are now addicted! This is by far the BEST subscription box we have had the pleasure to review. AND this will be the ONLY box I will continue to subscribe to! Honestly @$50 for the WHOLE box how can you not! ONE of the outfits cost more than this!! I am guessing our box was easily $150-$175 in retail. I am beyond happy! So will you be! ONE OF YOU gets the chance to win a 4 pc. box of name brand baby clothing of your own! I have no doubts there will be many many new fans of our new favorite baby shop Via The Sweet Pea Box!

Rumpkinz Diaper Review

Rumpkinz Diaper Review

rumpkinz1

So we all know I cloth diaper!  Well we received a diaper from a Rumpkinz and I must say we are in LOVE! We received a pink bobble minky diaper, with a embroidered panda! We think its amazingly adorable!

For the prep(Which every cloth diaper needs.) I simply ran it through the wash with a cloth diaper friendly soap and double rinsed to make sure there is no left over soap residue! I used Tide Free and Clear but I have also used soap nuts.  Both of these are super cloth diaper friendly!

rumpkinz4

The quality of this diaper is great. No loose threads, straight seams, no leaks through the PUL!  The diaper itself has an adjustable rise, and adjustable waist. With elastic along the back and elastic in the legs. The insert that came with this diaper is also VERY absorbent!  It holds a TON of liquid! When I pulled it out of the washer it was VERY soggy and wet,but it dried the first round in the dryer.

rumpkinz3

These are really easy to snap and adjust, I tinkered with the snaps to see how many sizes you could make, it has 3 rises(low, medium, and high). My little girl has adorable chubby baby thighs, and a skinny mini waist, which means alot of cloth diapers require a TON of  work to get snapped snuggle around her waist, with out being to snug around her thighs. These fit correctly the first time I snapped it!

Over all this is a super cute diaper, made by a stay at home mom. The quality is fantastic, and I absolutely love this fit! This diaper definately will be put into my regular rotation of diapers as one of my go to and favorites!

She is in genereal a happy baby, but there are not to many items that she is drawn to on a day to day basis and this folks has knocked most of her other plushies out of the ballpark!

almondina review1

almondina review1

We where asked to review Almondina Cookies…I was a skeptic, because I a a lil sntty about what I eat. Ok I am a LOT snotty about what I eat. And most biscotti type cookies…well they are just not appealing at all! Ok that is my not so sublte way to say that they SUCK. They look good though, so it didnt take a lot to convince my 20 year old to try one…ok she rushed to the kitchen, cookies in hand and started eating the GINGERSPICE flavored…..it wasnt long until all the varieties where being sampled. Even Bellamie got in on the action…The baby LOVES the SESAME variety! So since most of our readers know my family are a pack of picky eaters, who never give the baby junk food and who’s 20 year old is calorie obsessed…it will surprise you to know that not only did everyone eat the cookies, more impressive is that everyone LOVED the cookies! Win Win!! The only fat in Almondina Cookies is the Almonds…yep…no lard, no butter..no vegi oil so these cookies are very healthy! They ALSO have no cholesterol and no added fat, salt, or preservatives. I have a new love in my life…but I better eat the next box quickly…..I was beaten by the kids to this box!! I got a couple…but Ill be back to order more! Because of their quality, versatility and healthy nature Almondina Cookies wins a spot in out 2013 HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE !
Almondina® is the inspiring success story of a man whose great loves include both music and wonderful food. For generations his family loved his grandmother Dina’s most secret cookie, which she called Petit Gateau Sec. Yuval Zaliouk, an internationally known symphony conductor and gourmet chef, always had a special place in his heart (and stomach) for this exquisite, crispy wafer with the delicate flavor of roasted almonds and the natural sweetness of plump raisins.

Plus just look at the flavors available…I mean serously how can you resist??
THE ORIGINAL, CHOCONUT, CINNAROMA®, GINGERSPICE, ALMONDUO® , ANNIVERSARY™, BRANTREATS®, SESAME, PUMPKIN SPICE, CHOCOLATE CHERRY, CHOCOLATE DIPPED. YOGURT DIPPED ALMONDINA® BRANTREATS®, MILK CHOCOLATE ALMONDINA® DELIGHTS

Now I know one of our amazing readers would love a mixed assortment of cookies! And Almondina Cookies agrees! Lucky readers…One of you will win a box of assorted flavors!! Thats right, sent directly from the sponsor…but open in a private room to savor a few on yyour own before the family see’s them! Trust me on this…they go quickly…and we had a LOT of packs!! 🙂
