Matooka Kids Couture {review}



Matooka kids couture offers contemporary, sweet, stylish, cute, modest, and totally fashion forward attire that is sure to please the eyes of girls and parents alike.

Two best friends, both being mom’s of eight daughter between them teamed up together and launched Matooka in 2009 with the mission of creating a line “…that would attract girls with its fun attention to detail, and comfortable fit, but also appeal to parents with its reasonable price-points and quality make.”

We were sent the Let Loose shirt and skirt in hot pink to review. This outfit is made extremely well and it’s very soft and smooth. The outfit is adorable and it’s true to size, fitting my daughter absolutely perfectly! I love this outfit! It fits my daughter’s personality like a glove!

Matooka offers many fashion forward pieces that are sure to delight any little girl. The spring line has so many fun styles and colors that I can hardly wait to see what they will be offering for the Fall 2010 line! Clothing sizes starting at 2t!

Matooka also gives back by donating 10% of all profits to research in infertility and to families undergoing costly assisted reproductive treatments.

Buy It: You can purchase Matooka Kids Couture girl’s clothing from a number of retail locations, including online at Peachandplum.com and Shopbabytrends.com.

You can also find Matooka on Facebook.

Wholesale Keychain {review}

I’m a fan of key chains! Why? Well, in my mind they can be one of the best reminders of those you love. Most people deal with their keys on daily basis, so there’s a good chance you’ll take a look at your key chain and be reminded of those that you love. That’s great especially if you aren’t having the greatest of days, the key chain is the simple reminder of those that you love and gives you the gumption to keep going on.

Recently I head about the company WholesaleKeychain.com, an online distributor of literally hundreds of officially licensed keychains and keyrings. From digital framed, and Disney-themed pieces, personalized locket types, and a lot more. Wholesale Keychain offers an huge selection that will make finding the perfect key chain to gift or symbolize something  or someone special to you very easy!

I was able to personally review two key chains from WholesaleKeychain.com which include a Music Note and a Star Trek, both symbolize those closest to me in my life, my husband and my daughter Melody. The key chains are affordable and of good quality. And in knowing this, I’m wanting to make an order of my own around the holidays to make a personalized anniversary set of key chains for my husband and myself.

I would recommend checking them out for yourself at WholesaleKeychain.com!

Passion Spice {review & giveaway }

passionspice

ellenursingbra I learned about Passion Spice for the first time last April when I was nursing my first baby and was very excited for the opportunity to review one of their fantastic nursing bras. You can read my review on it here.

This July I was given the opportunity to review a few pieces from their maternity lingerie line which is perfect since I am currently 16 weeks pregnant with my second child and I’m showing lots more this go around.

The Passion Spice baby doll I was sent is absolutely adorable and can be worn at any stage in pregnancy and beyond. It’s available in red and black running from sizes small through XXL. I found it to be of high quality and very comfortable and breathable which is a plus during the warm summer months.

Passion Spice offers a wonderful line of  maternity and nursing lingerie that’s made to flatter our growing and changing figures before and after pregnancy. I would highly recommend checking them out. I know in the months to come, I’ll be purchasing a few more nursing bras!
