Hip T

hiptlogo1

My assets are now covered! I wish I could have come up with such a catchy slogan for the company called Hip T myself!

Hip T is company that set out to do something about just that, “Covering our Assets” so that our style won’t fall between our own crack so to speak.

I have a child, so guess what? I am constantly bending over, reaching down, and crawling around to keep up with her. I find myself constantly pulling down my shirts or pulling up my pants. I honestly just stopped wearing lots of my favorite jeans and shirts because I didn’t want to keep exposing myself. It was a sad day when I decided that I just had it with some of my clothes and stored them away to maybe never to wear them again. I even thought of donating them to good will. I had about lost all hope and then…

I discovered the Hip T! Basically, the Hip T is a band of fabric worn under your shirt that adds the look of a layer without added bulk and it hides our assets so we aren’t exposed anymore!

Hip-t comes in three styles, in a variety of different colors. There’s the basic style that looks like an ordinary t-shirt, the Original which has a band of lace at the bottom, and also the sassy prints which feature wild animal prints. I was able to try out the Hip T in the basic style myself in Dark Fuchsia and Aqua. These colors go great with my spring and summer wardrobe. You can also wear this with skirts too for some pretty chic styles!

So I tried these T’s out and they were great! I bent and moved and crawled around and the T’s stayed in place. It is a wonderful feeling of comfort not to constantly have to pull my shirt down or pants up anymore. I am thrilled to be able to pull my clothes back out from the closet that I had retired!

So remember, the Hip T covers bum cleavage, Lengthens Any Top, Hides Muffin Top, and Creates Layers without Bulk. If these aren’t reason enough to own a few Hip T’s, I don’t know what else is.

Smart Mom Jewelry

If you’re a mom like me, I’m sure you may miss wearing your jewelry.  I like to accessorize when wearing certain outfits and having a little one made that hard because whatever necklace or bracelet I wore went straight to her mouth. First, I didn’t want her to get hurt or choke on whatever I was wearing, second I didn’t want teeth marks all over my pieces, and third I didn’t want to stop accessorizing. What was I to do? I pretty much gave up wearing anything, that is until discovered Smart Mom Jewelery.

The Smart Mom Jewelry line is great! They have a variety of styles and colors to choose from. I like how  the styles mimic  those ever popular stone circle pendants. I had lots of people appalled at me at first because that thought I was letting my daughter chew on stone. They were relieved after I explained to them what my child was chewing on and thought the idea of it was ingenious! I like these so much that I  wear them even when I don’t have my daughter with me and was even complimented on them. I was quite amused and pleased that people  couldn’t tell the difference!

reddonut2Smart Mom Jewelry also has pretty cute heart pendants, bangle bracelets, and even key chains! These pieces are safe for your baby or toddler to teeth and tug o. All pieces are non-toxic, phthalate, BPA, PVC, lead free, and even dishwasher friendly. All the pendants come with a breakaway clasp as an added safety feature. Though you should never leave your child alone with a pendant due to safety reasons.

This jewelry has made me happy again were I can accessorize and not worry about the safety of my child. I’m a baby wearing mom so my daughter is usually always pretty close to me. These make my daughter pretty happy too because she does not take to a pacifier so when she’s really teething she had nothing to chew on while I was carrying her around.  Smart Mom jewelery has both this mom and daughter very happy!

I would have to say that the hardest part about purchasing this jewelry is picking it out due to the gorgeous variety! Know also that a percentage of all retail sales goes to CureSearch and Dress for Success, two  great charitable organizations.

Breezy Bags Review

fivefullbags
I’ve taken the plunge on going green! I cloth diaper my baby, light my home with CFL light bulbs,  I wash my clothes in cold water, line dry when I can, recycle, and I use totes when I go grocery shopping. Now the last thing I mentioned, I used to struggle with. My husband and I purchased totes from a grocery store but they always never ended up going back with us. We’d end up leaving them at home due to naturally forgetting them.  Then something great happened, I learned about Breezy Bags! These bags are not like most grocery store tote bags, these bags fold up and they can fit easily into my purse, diaper bag, pocket, or on my husbands belt loop since they have a nice little clip.

Breezy Bags in Olive Green

I received a pouch of five Olive Green breezy bags to test out. I took them for a spin yesterday while out grocery shopping and let me tell you, these bags did the job! All my groceries for the next few weeks fit into these bags perfectly.  I was taken by surprise that these bags can hold up to 15lbs each! They look so thin and frail but looks can be deceiving! After my grocery shopping trip, I easily folded these bags back up, put them in the pouch and tossed them back in my purse, ready for the next shopping trip!  I don’t think I’ll have a problem having my eco friendly bags on the ready ever again!

These  bags come in a variety of solid colors, they also have were you can add your business logo, which I found pretty neat. You can buy one set of bags for 16.99 or two for 30.00.  It’s really a great deal! We’ll probably end up getting another set so my husband can keep some in the cup holder of his car and I can always keep mine in my purse.

Breezy Bags are solidly stitched out of maximum strength, minimum weight rip stop nylon cloth , to be the most versatile, eco-friendly, green reusable bags and totes imaginable: for all your shopping, storage and toting needs. If these grocery bags get damp, they dry in minutes. They may be machine washed in cold water and hung to dry.

They come with a 1 year limited warranty against defects of material or workmanship, and if you are unhappy with your Breezy Bags for any reason at all, you can contact them within 30 days of your purchase for a full refund.

And if you haven’t taken the green plunge yet, here’s some interesting fact that I’d like share:

In the U.S. we use around 270,000,000 plastic shopping bags in a single day.

One person uses more than 325 plastic shopping bags per year.

A family of four will use more than 1200 per year.

Only 1% of plastic bags get recycled.

700 plastic bags will be used in the life span of one reusable bag.

Paper bags are no better because they use more energy to produce than plastic.

There are over 100,000 marine deaths per year due to plastic bag ingestion.

It takes 1000 years for a single plastic bag to break down in a land fill.

Plastic bags do not biodegrade, they photodegrade. This means they are broken down by light and heat, which causes them to leach harmful toxins into the environment.

So if you are like me and naturally forget your other reusable shopping bags or you want to start thing more GREEN,  get yourself some Breezy Bags today… trust me, you won’t regret it!
