Holiday Gift Guide: Fairy-Gram Review

shapeimage_1

fairgramAs a child, I was always fascinated with fantasy and the secretly intriguing lives of our magical winged little friends. Fairy’s seemed to have it all, as they flew through the forest and went on their ways spreading good cheer and gracing those whom they met with sheer mystery and wonder. What little girl wouldn’t want to be a fairy? Or at least get to dress up like one when playing pretend.

Thanks to Fairy-Gram.com, my little girl all adorably dressed in a Hot Pink fairy outfit looks like she is about to leave home and have adventures right along side Peter Pan in Never Ever Land.

The beautiful fairy costumes from Fairy Grams come in various shades of colors from everything from white to  rainbow.  Each costumes comes carefully gift wrapped and delivered straight to your home.

A Fairy Gram set includes a fairy tutu in which has free flowing flowers, a set of fairy wings, fairy ribbon wand, an adjustable fairy halo with tail, and two matching butterfly hair clips.  No worries about sizing, Fairy Grams are pretty much a one size fits all approximately fitting girls ages one to eight years old.

My daughter loves being a fairy! She gets really happy when I dress her up and she runs around the house shaking her little wand on everything giggling! I can’t wait till it gets warm again so I can dress her up and let her run through the woods! Can you imagine the photos? Definitely ones to be treasured forever!

I still can’t get over the price of just $35.95 for it all. These outfits are top of the line quality and will last throughout lots of play. If you know a little girl that loves dressing up and adores fairies, why not surprise  her with a special Fairy-Gram this Holiday season?

I recommend purchasing a leotard and tights if you’d like to complete the look. Though it’s acceptable for your little Fairy to wear whatever she would like whether it would be a Rock Star Tee with psychedelic leggings or Princess shirt with jeans !  We are all for originality and personal style here at Connected2Christ!

Holiday Gift Guide: Stay with Me Socks Review & Giveaway (closed)

bg_szw4

100_2671I bet nobody ever told you that with all the smiles, tears, sleepless nights, and diapers that parenthood brings you would have to deal with the ever escaping and endlessly missing sock!

Socks, can’t live with them and can’t live without them, so to speak.  I don’t know about you but anytime I need a pair socks for my daughter that match, I come up end handed. It’s nowhere near as bad now as my 16 month old daughter has grown to accept wearing socks. But several months ago that was a different story.

I recall my daughter only being a few months old and being out in the cool chilly weather and looked down to see one of her socks missing! Either she pulled it off or it slipped off on it’s own. What’s a mom to do? Yes, we can throw extra pairs in the diaper bag to handle that awful and inconvenient  situation but in short we all know that those replacement socks will going missing soon as well. And don’t even get me started on the monster in the dryer that tends to eat my daughter’s socks too!

pink_blue_on_header_copyCheryl DelMastro mother of three  realized this problem that mothers have with their infants and went to work on a pair of socks to make our lives a bit easier! Thus Stay With Me Socks was born.

I was sent of a pair of Classic Pink Stripe socks in size large for review and I must say I am very impressed with the design and quality. How the sock works is that it features a Velcro strap that fastens around the ankle to create a secure but comfortable fit for babies from birth to 14 months of age. Though the socks say 14 months of age, they fit my daughter perfectly well but know she is petite for her age.

Remember the Velcro strap I just mentioned? Well, you can loop the velcro around each-other and these socks won’t lose each other in the wash! I love it.

The newborn socks comes in green/white stripe, pink/white stripe, blue/white stripe, white solid and pink or blue with touches of white. The bigger size (3-14 months) comes in the three stripe combos.Each pair has  skid proof bottoms to aid babies as they are learning to walk and stand!

Overall, my daughter and I love these socks! We give these 5 stars for style and function!   I will definitely be getting a few pairs when I have another child!
