GoGo by Therafirm {Review}



GoGo by Therafirm  is the solution for those whom may suffer from leg aches and swelling by offering compression leg wear that  improves circulation.


I was able to review two different types of leg compression support hose for this review (Footless Tights in black & Pantyhose in a skin tone color) and have been in heaven since they’ve arrived!  My legs completely felt worlds better after wearing these whether for just a few hours or all day long on my feet!

So how are these hose different from others that you may find on the market? These first aren’t just any sort of hose, they offer gradient compression which delivers a controlled amount of pressure greatest at the ankle and gradually decreases towards the top of the stocking to promote better blood flow.

Don’t let the price of these products phase you either as these products are of the highest quality and you should have no fear of snagging them. Quality and comfort are key when it comes to treating your body right!

If you are interested in these for yourself, note that they come in lots of sizes and the color selection is quite impressive as well.  I’m looking to get a few more colors for myself soon.

Plus Motif Tablet Case Covers by Papier de Maison {Review}


I’ve been a tablet owner for a little over two months now. My Nexus Tablet used quite a bit for my blog writing, reading books, taking notes, responding to emails, watching movies, playing games, and more. It’s pretty much an extension of myself in our digital age. And I knew with my budding love of my tablet being constantly used, I needed a case for it. But not just any case, I wanted a case that is currently functional in many different ways as well as appealing to the eye. A girl has has to have her accessories!

Screen Captures

I stumbled across an awesome company early this year that I’m excited to share about called Twice! This company offers stylish second hand name brand apparel at 70-90% off original retail prices! I’m pleased to say that because of Twice I’ve been able to get out with the old and in with the new (even though second hand), totally revamping my wardrobe with great name brand apparel for a prices I can easily afford compared to buying at full price.

I’ve made 3 orders to date in the past two months with Twice and have been 100% satisfied with all of my purchases. An example of my savings to talk about is an outfit I picked out recently for a date out with husband which was a pair of Mid-Rise Black Skinny Jeans by Banana Republic and a Teal Dreamweight Cotton Tank Top by Express. If I purchased at the normal retail price, the outfit I chose would have cost me about $90.o0 but with Twice, the outfit only cost me $25.00 saving me 65.00 ! And that savings is something to totally brag about knowing that I got top brand clothing that will last and looks great! It’s about time this mom updated her wardrobe too!

Have I convinced you to check them out yet? Some other reasons I am happy with Twice is because they have a very nice selection of clothes and navigating the site and searching for apparel is simple to do! You can search by color, style, cut, and brand (Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, Nordstrom, Express, J. Crew, and more!). If you wonder if something might not fit, be relieved that all the measurements for each items are listed with right along with it and if it comes to it, returning an item is free!

Twice offers professional photographs of all items, there are all sorts of clothing sizes from xxs and up, sizing descriptions as well as care instruction on each item, same-day shipping, 30 day full refunds, and excellent 24-hour customer service. Also, if you’re cleaning out your closet, you can send in your clothing ( they pay shipping), and they buy upfront!

If you join Twice through my link you’ll get $10.00 of your first order and if you invite your friends, and you’ll get a credit to your own account of $10 when each friend makes their first purchase (up to a max of $100). Shipping is Free on orders over $49 ($5 otherwise) and free 30-day returns.

All the items pictured in my post were purchased from Twice! Again I’m very pleased with everything and highly recommend this great company. I’m looking forward to making another order soon! Also as you can see there are clothes for any and every season available for purchase!

I highly recommend following Twice on Facebook and reading their blog!

Review and Promo Code: My Sunshine Shoppe

Company Bio: My Sunshine Shoppe was started in 2009 after the birth of my first and only daughter, Brooklyn, who of course, is our little Sunshine. She is blessed to have an older and a younger brother, but being the only girl diva in the family, she NEEDED to be dressed to the “T” at all times. I started making little baby snap clips for her fine (but plentiful) hair. People were amazed how my little tiny clips stayed in her hair so well. Thus, my famous “baby snap” clip was born. For a long time, this clip was the staple of my business. I had customers returning to me over and over again, claiming my clips were the only ones that stayed put in their child’s hair. I was thrilled!

As my Brooke grew older, and hair grew longer, I started to develop more and more hair accessories, for girls with ANY style, length and texture of hair. In 2011, I moved my business out of my home and opened a small shop in a neighboring town. At the beginning of 2012, I made the Big move, and opened a large retail store in our state capital. I am so proud of how far MySunshine Shoppe has come, and we continue to add more and more products every day.

I pride myself on hand made, QUALITY products for girls of ALL ages. 95% of our items are handcrafted in our studio shoppe, by myself, or one of my fabulous employees, who take just as much pride as I do in creating unique, fabulous accessories.

Our Thoughts…

It’s back to school season and that means shopping for all sorts of  supplies some needed and some more fun to have just because.  My daughter and I really enjoy this time of the year because it means new clothes and accessories too! My daughter enjoys have her nails painted, wearing glittery shoes, skirts and fancy tights, as well as wearing really cute hair accessories!

I’m excited today to talk about My Sunshine Shoppe. They sent my daughter a lovely lot of hair accessories based off the knowledge that my daughter’s favorite color is purple. The lot we received had a sparkly bow, ruffled purple polka dotted flower, and several alligator clippies. All were super adorable and well loved.

As a mommy, that sometimes make hair clippies for my daughter as a hobby and as a perfectionist, I find myself a harsh judge when it comes to purchasing them from boutiques. I’m pleased to say that the hair bows and clips we recieved to review our of very professional quality. There’s no loose ends, frayed or singed edges,  or glue spots. You are totally get top quality durable accessories in huge variety of types, styles, and colors.

If you are interested in purchasing hair clippies, hats, hairband, hairbow holders,  bobby pins, flower clips, check out this boutique! They’ve even got a hair clippie of the month club which you can be a member of for either 6 or twelve months. And just think how fun it would be during the school year to receive a special selection of clippies each month!

You can purchase these wonderful accessories for yourself at My Sunshine Shoppe on Etsy or at ttp://

If you make a purchase, be sure to use the code: C2C15 for 15% off your entire purchase!

Review & Giveaway: Kidorable Ladybug Collection

April showers bring May flowers and that couldn’t ring truer here in Oregon! And what fun is all the rain if you can’t deck your children out in adorable, I meanKidorable rain gear! I’ve had both my daughter and son in Kidorable rain gear practically since they were born and will continue to do so until they are too big to wear it anymore! And what fun because there are so many different styles to choose from for both boys and girls that they can always have something different to look cute and stay dry in every year!

This Spring, my nearly four year old daughter has been sporting the Lady Bug Kidorable rain wear collection. This particular collection offers styles perfect for any child year round featuring not just Spring and Summer light rain wear but knit hats, scarves, and gloves for the fall and winter too! And Kidorable doesn’t stop there, they also have matching book ends for your child’s room, as well as towels, hangers sets, and matching back packs for on the go!

To review and spotlight, we were sent the Lady Bug Raincoat, Hanger, Backpack, and matching rain boots. The colors in this particular collection are a very eye catching pattern of black and a very bold red, perfect for any ladybug lover! Children ages 1 through 6 year olds can wear this set in style through out any rainy season! Trust me, oohs and aahs are sure to follow! There’s nowhere we go that my daughter hasn’t been complimented on her Kidorable rainwear ensemble!

The Ladybug Raincoat is made out of PVC which is very easy to wipe clean and lined with polyester. It has two pockets one a giant ladybug and the other a large black spot that feature zipper closures so your little one can keep perhaps a hanky, hair band, or something else safely tucked away from the elements. There are four snap button from top to bottom and an inner loop at the neck of the coat for easy hanging up after use. The coat pattern itself is all red except on the hood, sleeves, and the buttons which feature darling ladybug spots! The coat my daughter received is a size 4t and is giving enough to accommodate my daughter and whatever she is wearing such as a thin top or a bulky sweater until she needs the next size rain coat! Almost forgot to mention that it came with an adorable matching hanger too!

The Ladybug Boots are perfect for a stroll to the park on a over cast day, helping out in a muddy garden, and my daughter’s favorite rainy day activity….puddle jumping! These boots are excellent in resisting water with the natural rubber exterior. There’s a pull tab featured on the top part of the boot making it easy to slip these boots on. These boots are light weight so it won’t weigh down your children’s feet as they are walking or running. Speaking of running, the non-skid soles improve traction on wet surfaces and are great in preventing accidents. You can easily wipe these clean after a day in the mud! This style of boot is available in My First (size 5), children’s sizes 6-13, plus young adult sizes 1 and 2.

The matching Ladybug Backpack is great for kids of all ages. My daughter loves to carry this bag along with her wherever she goes. It features two front zip close pockets and one large compartment. Right now my daughter likes to store her drink cup, a snack, hairbrush, rubber bands, lip balm, and other various random treasures. The bag would make a great take a long for a trip to Grandma’s house, daycare, preschool, or any other outing where your child would be excited about bringing it along. I like the bag has held up well and that the straps are fully adjustable.

Overall there’s nothing we don’t like about the Ladybug Collection from Kidorable. In fact, we are already looking to purchase the matching umbrella soon. If interested, you can purchase Kidorable products at their website ranging from $11.50-$36.00! I highly recommend the  Kidorable  Collections not just because of adorable they are but because how durable they are too!

Win it!

I am thrilled to be giving one of my readers the opportunity to win their very own umbrella!
