Sweet Dreams Baby + GIVEAWAY

If you are like most people, then you love to sleep.....

Do you get enough sleep? I know I don't! It is quite difficult to stay up all day with an energizer toddler during the day, and then try to get a few cat naps in during the night with an infant between feedings. Now I am not complaining - I love my life and would not change anything about it; however, I will do anything and everything to make sure that my little cat naps turn into sweet dreams.

DreamSacks is a company that allows me to have sweet dreams. With their luxurious bamboo wear, I feel like I am wearing practically nothing! The clothes are super soft and very lightweight which allows my skin to breathe. If I wear anything else other than DreamSacks clothes, then I get too hot during the night. Therefore, I constantly battle between being hot and cold from kicking the blankets off and then pulling them back on - very frustrating; hence, the lack of sleep.

I love that the DreamSacks clothes are so comfortable. I pretty much want to wear them all the time whether I am sleeping, working out, lounging around, etc.

Not only does DreamSacks offer great clothes for men, women, expecting mothers, and children, but they also offer travel blankets and accessories, bedding, and bath robes and towels. I will bet a lot of money that if I sleep so well in their clothes, that I would basically hibernate all year round if I was to sleep in their bedding!

To have a heavenly experience in bamboo, go to www.dreamsacks.com. You won't be disappointed! Now through September 25, 2009 you can get 15 % off your next purchase when you use the code GIGGLE15.


DreamSacks is giving away a white BambooDreams Woven Baby Blanket that is 36" by 36" and retails at $39.50.

Organic Muslin

Remember the wonderful muslin swaddling blankets from aden + anais in an earlier post? Well......guess what? They have added an organic line of muslin swaddling blankets - just when I thought that these blankets couldn't get any better!!!

Muslin is already a natural fiber; however, organic muslin is like the top of the line fiber! I love knowing that my babies are safe from harmful chemicals and pesticides when they are wrapped in the aden + anais blankets (great for sensitive skin!).

Besides being healthy for your baby as well as for the earth, you can rest assured that when you swaddle your precious bundles of joy in these babies that they will not over heat. Aden + anais created these blankets so that they are the perfect temperature in the summer as well as the winter. Yay! No more buying separate blankets for each season!

Aden + anais created a fabulous product that will last for years to come. When my daughter was younger, I would swaddle her with the muslin blankets. Now that she is older, she carries them around everywhere she goes - the house, the car, church, etc. She absolutely loves them, and gets mad if you try and take them away from her! The more she loves on them and they get washed, the more softer they become.

Another great aspect of these blankets is that they have many uses. You can use them to swaddle your baby, as a burp cloth, a play blanket, a bassinet cover, a carrier cover, a stroller cover, a play pen cover, or whatever your mind can imagine. Wow, now that's a super deal - eco-friendly, lasts a long time, and has multiple uses!

Too see for yourself, go to www.adenandanais.com.
It is definitely worth $34 to me to have a beautiful eco-friendly blanket that will last far beyond multiple children! Not only do they have muslin swaddling blankets, but they also have wash cloths, sleeping bags, and towels.

Be sure to become a fan of aden + anais on Facebook to keep up with the latest products and giveaways! Click here:

These are just some of the names that you will see when browsing through the beautifully stunning eco-friendly UrthBags's purses and bags. Each bag is carefully made from recycled or biodegradable materials such as juice boxes, newspaper, seashells, etc. With so many different types of bags to choose from, your sure to find a few to your liking. I know I have fallen in love with a few different types from the Angelina bag to the Monica bag!

Hosted by RockYouPhotos.com

The Monica UrthBag is made from recycled juice boxes. Your probably thinking, how can you make a bag look cute with recycled juice boxes, right? Well let me just tell you that it is super chic!
Since it is made from the silver side of juice boxes, it pretty much goes with almost everything! You can dress it up, or dress it down. You can wear it as a clutch, or wear it as a purse with the removable chain straps.

I love that the Monica UrthBag is very durable! I can stuff all my goodies in there, and not have to worry that this eco-friendly bag won't hold up. Another great fact about this bag is that it is not too large; therefore, when I am in a hurry going out with my kids, all I have to do is throw the bag into the diaper bag and voila - easy access to my things!

Hosted by RockYouPhotos.com

I dare you to browse around all of the UrthBags. I know that you will love just about every single bag that they have to offer! You can't get better than a beautifully constructed eco-friendly handbag or purse that will compliment your entire wardrobe. So go see for yourself at www.urthbags.com!

Scrabble Anyone?

Scrabble is a fun game with loads of possibility by creating different words from other letters already being used. Well, what about using the scrabble tiles in ways other than creating words? Like, um, lets see a pendant?

Hosted by RockYouPhotos.com

IM Creations does just that. They take individual scrabble tiles, and turn them into beautiful pendants for necklaces. What a cool idea! Scrabble tiles are just the right size for a necklace - not too small and not too large. Wearing a Scrabble tile masked by amazing art, makes me smile! I know that I am wearing a wonderfully made piece of jewelry while making an eco-fabulous fashion statement.

Each tile has an image that is decoupaged onto the tile, and then it is covered with a non-toxic glaze. IM Creations has so many unique and stylish pendants to choose from that I guarantee that you will love more than just one!

Just like the game Scrabble, the pendants from IM Creations have many possibilities as well. You can custom order a pendant with a baby photo, wedding photo, graduation photo, etc. Plus, you can give them as gifts for bridal parties, birthday parties, baby showers, etc. Or you could just buy a million different pendants to go with each one of your outfits! I'd say that $6.50 is a steal for these beauties!

Not only does IM Creations make beautiful Scrabble pendants, but they also make gorgeous bamboo necklaces as well. When I wear the bamboo necklace, I practically forget that I am even wearing jewelry because it is very lightweight. I can't stand jewelry that is heavy, especially when I am lugging around kids and belongings all day!

Hosted by RockYouPhotos.com

Like the Scrabble pendants, the bamboo necklaces are created with high quality craftsmanship. When you buy from IM Creations, you are getting the works - super cute jewelry with an eco-friendly flare!

Become An Organic Diva....

With Down Home Diva's clothing and accessories! Each garment of clothing as well as each accessory has been recreated into a work of art. Down Home Diva takes dull shirts, skirts, bags, etc., and puts remarkable talent and creativity into them with beautifully designed appliques from Moda batik fabrics.

The organic skirts from Down Home Diva are super fun and very versatile. I was able to wear the skirt as a tube top, a skirt, and over a pair of pants.
You can also wear the skirt long, or roll up the waistband to make it a mini skirt. It definitely spruces up any wardrobe because it makes a wonderful layering piece - great for summer or fall!

Down Home Diva creates each applique where the more the garment is worn, the more the applique has character. That is wonderful! Most clothes are worn and over time loses color and shape; however, with Down Home Diva's clothes, the more you wear them the better they become!

Best of all, the pricing on each item is amazing! You could buy an entire outfit with accessories, and not even put a dent in your wallet. I'd say that is outstanding for this economy!

To become an organic diva, go to www.downhomediva.etsy.com. Check out all of the beautiful and creative clothes and accessories that they have to offer!

Happy Feet

I just love baby booties! They are so easy to get on and off of your little one's feet. Plus, they are super fun. However, sometimes the prices on baby booties can be a little too much, especially in this economy!

Looking for fun and fashionable baby booties for half the price? Well, you are in luck! I have found the most adorable and affordable baby booties at Happy Solez. Not only are they uber cute and half the price of other baby booties, but they are also lined with ORGANIC fabric. Wow, now that's a crazy deal - awesome baby booties, organic, and half the price!

Happy Solez has so many different prints to choose from like pretty flowers or character prints. My favorite is the brown corduroy baby booties. They go with almost everything, and they are really soft.

The inside of Happy Solez's 100 Collection shoes are lined with organic fabric. This is a wonderful idea because feet sweat so much that there needs to be a lightweight breathable fabric around them. Plus, it's great to know that when my kids wear them, their feet are not soaking up any harmful chemicals due to the organic fabric!

I am really fond of the swirly stitching on Happy Solez's baby booties. It definitely adds a unique flare to them that sets them apart from other baby booties. I am all about products that are different from others, especially if they are very well made like Happy Solez!

To see all of Happy Solez's fantastic baby booties, go to www.happysolez.etsy.com. Let your baby have happy feet today!

Nurser Baggies Be Gone!!!

I cringe when it comes to plastic baggies - whether that's snack baggies, storage baggies, nurser baggies, etc. I hate that they are used once and then thrown away! So, if you are a breastfeeding mother needing to freeze your breast milk, then what should you use? Well, I have the perfect solution for you!

Sensible Lines is a breast milk freezing system that uses Milk Trays. Huh? What are Milk Trays? They are trays that hold eight individual one-ounce servings of breast milk. Just pour your expressed breast milk into each slot in the tray, put the lid on, and place in the freezer.

This system is wonderful for so many reasons! First and foremost you can ditch the nurser baggies. Once the breast milk is frozen, just transfer the milk sticks to a freezer bag, wash the tray, and voila - use them over and over again. Plus, no more spending money on expensive plastic baggies called "nurser baggies".

Secondly, the plastic used for the Milk Trays are
Bisphenol-A, Phthalate and dye free. Yay! No worrying about harmful chemicals being released into your breast milk! Sensible Lines uses the safest medical-grade plastic.

Thirdly, your breast milk will not go to waste. You can make your baby's bottle the way you want. Add as many or as few milk sticks that you need instead of thawing out a full baggie of breast milk. Sensible Lines created the Milk Trays in a way that each frozen stick of breast milk will fit in any size baby bottle opening. Very economical!

Sensible Lines was created by moms for moms. Therefore, you know that you are getting a high quality product. I absolutely love this system! It is so convenient and easy to use. Best of all, you will save money while reducing breast milk waste as well as plastic baggie waste! Check it out for yourself at www.sensiblelines.com.

Be a Mother - In Style!

I have completely fallen head over heals in love with the organic nursing wear from Mothers En Vogue! After having two babies back-to-back (14 months apart), I am really self-conscious about my body. I have about 20 more pounds to lose to get my pre-pregnancy figure back (yikes!).

Mothers En Vogue's Organic Collection actually makes me feel VERY sexy. Yes, I said it. SEXY! From the amazing fabric to the wonderful fit, their apparel hides my (umm... somewhat) soft, bumpy body allowing me to feel very comfortable in my own skin. Each top that I wore has two layers of fabric over the stomach area which covers my not so flat tummy. I got so many compliments when I went out in public the other day that I want to wear nothing but Mothers En Vogue clothing!

Another great aspect of their nursing wear is that breastfeeding is a breeze. With the double layer of fabric in front, my stomach is not exposed to the world. Hallelujah! I don't want people looking at my tummy let alone the stretch marks, and I am almost positive that people don't want to see that area either!

So Mothers En Vogue makes me feel like a super model, and hides my stomach and chest while breastfeeding. Could it get any better than that? Yes, it can! The Organic / Eco Collection is made from organic cotton - meaning that the fabric of these garments are grown and produced in a way where there is little exposure to toxic chemicals that pollute the earth. Buying organic clothing is healthy for you, your children, and our earth!

Check out all of the Mothers En Vogue apparel at www.mothersenvogue.com. They have so many wonderful clothing lines to choose from whether you are a woman, a mother, or a breastfeeding mommy. Make yourself feel SEXY today!!!

Nursing Shawl That Does It All!

I am all about getting the bang for your buck. When I can get something that has more than one use, I jump all over it! This is what you get when you buy a L'ovedbaby Nursing Shawl.

As you can imagine, the L'ovedbaby Nursing Shawl is wonderful for nursing. But it is also great for a baby blanket, a stroller cover, a carrier cover, a maternity cover, and whatever else you can think of. Now that is what I call getting the bang for your buck, especially for only $29.95.

I am quite fond of these nursing shawls because they are extremely soft to the touch which makes me want to wear it all day long. Plus, the design on each of the covers is very neat looking.

Each of the covers is one size fits all. Therefore, they make great gifts for moms-to-be or any mother for that matter.

The L'ovedbaby Nursing Shawl is very comfortable to wear, and covers all areas that need to be covered while nursing. The wide opening at the top makes it easy to see your little one.

One of my favorite aspects of these shawls is that they can be folded up into the matching drawstring bag to fit perfectly in a diaper bag, purse, gym bag, etc. Less space taken up in my already full diaper bag makes me a happy mommy!

Check out all of the L'ovedbaby's beautiful nursing shawls
as well as their cute clothes and arms-free swaddlers at www.lovedbaby.com.

Project Extravaganza...

Hosted by RockYouPhotos.com

I love crafts and projects; however, I am not that great at creative thinking. If you are like me, then you should definitely check out Cut Out and Keep. This is a website where people give step-by-step instructions on how to make all kinds of things from food to clothes.

Cut Out and Keep is also great for tackling and reusing stuff that is just lying around your house. For example, I have so many baby, fitness, and clothes magazines that it is not even funny! So instead of just throwing them away, I could follow the step-by-step instructions on how to make eco coasters from magazines. Another fabulous idea is taking plastic shopping bags and fusing them together in the form of a purse or bag.

Not only does Cut Out and Keep have many amazing crafts and projects to share, but it also has an online magazine that has many neat stories and ideas. I have spent so much time at this site exploring all of the creative wonders. Visit www.cutoutandkeep.net and get your creative juices flowing!


I am really fond of the saying, "one man's junk is another one's treasure". This saying holds true to the Keen Harvest Collection Bags. Rice paper turned into beautiful and colorful bags. Now that is some fabulous creativity! Who would have thought that rice paper could be made into a new and useful product.

Hosted by RockYouPhotos.com

My favorite is the Irving Bag. It is made from reclaimed rice paper that is woven to create a gorgeous bag. I love that every bag is completely different from one another. That is what makes the world go round - uniqueness!

Hosted by RockYouPhotos.com

Keen's Irving Bag is very spacious with lots of pockets. Plus the handles are very comfortable on your shoulder. Having multiple children, this bag is every mother's dream as a diaper bag! This bag is very well put together. As you can see below in the picture, I was able to put a lot of items in the bag (very sturdy!). Another great aspect of the bag is once my kids out grow the diaper bag phase, I can use this bag as a gym bag or an everyday bag.

Not only does Keen carry amazing eco-friendly bags, but they also have really neat shoes for everyone. Be sure to check them out at www.keenfootwear.com.


I love to be really comfortable while looking great. Momzelle helps me feel this way! Momzelle is a Canadian company that makes cute nursing wear that is super comfy. I can wear their clothes at home or in public, and know that I look awesome.

Momzelle has all kinds of garments from nursing tanks to long sleeve nursing tops. You can choose from a wide range of colors from pretty purple to vibrant blue. I really like that the black and khaki colors are made from 92 % organic cotton!

Nursing in Momzelle's clothes is easy as 1, 2, 3. Just lift one side of the top, place baby in position, and begin breastfeeding. You discreetly nurse while looking fabulous!

When breastfeeding has ran it's course for your little one, you can still wear Momzelle's nursing tops because they don't look like nursing tops. You can jazz up one of their tees by adding necklaces and layering peices, or just wear as is for a casual and comfy look.

Check out Momzelle's fashionable nursing wear at www.Momzelle.com. Their clothing make great gifts for nursing moms or moms-to-be. $45 and up for adorable nursing wear that can be worn indefinitely is a great investment in your wardrobe!

Juice Packs = Diaper Bag

I love it when people get creative and take something that is used daily to turn it into to something else. For instance, you know the juice packs that kids drink? Well, what about taking the empty juice packs, and turning them into bags! If you ask me, that is very creative!

Rebagz Handbags carries just that. Half The Sky Designs takes empty juice packs, and weaves them together to form these beautiful Rebagz. They make so many different styles that fit anyone's lifestyle like the All-In-One Wallets, Pop Top Bags, Wrap Around Bags, or my personal favorite On The Go / Bringing Up Baby Bag.

The On The Go / Bringing Up Baby Bag is very spacious. Perfect for carrying around baby items as well as mommy items. I was able to pack in one outfit for my newborn son, one outfit for my 15 month daughter, a can of formula, a blanket, multiple toys, diapers for both babies, wipes, diaper cream, a sippy cup of juice, and a bottle. If you think that is a lot for one bag, think again! Even with all of the items mentioned, there was still plenty of room left over. Now that is my kind of bag!

Not only is the On The Go / Bringing Up Baby Bag great as a diaper bag, but it also works well as a gym bag or lap top bag once the diaper bag phase ends. Talk about a truely amazing bag. Juice packs turned into a magnificent bag that can be used in multiple ways - very eco-friendly!

Half The Sky Designs also takes empty rice sacks, and turns them into gorgeous Rice Sack Graphic Handbags. Like the Juicy Handwoven Rebagz, there are so many different Rice Sack Graphic Handbags to choose from too.

With so many beautiful handbags to choose from, I could just spend hours upon hours browsing around on their website. To see for yourself, visit www.rebagz.com to see all of the different kinds of eco-fabulous bags that they have to offer.

Function Full Of Fashion

When I think of nursing clothes, most of the time I think of the words "frumpy" and "not flattering". However, when I came across Boob Nursing Wear, I thought "funky" and "functional".

They have so many different tops and dresses to choose from in all kinds of pretty colors and designs. Consider this - I feel like I look amazing when I put on any garments within the clothing line. Having a baby less than one month ago, this is almost impossible! I look great!

Each garment is made from high quality fabric. High quality fabric combined with high quality design creates fabulous clothes that look and feel good. I love that most of the nursing tops are longer than most shirts because they make great layering pieces throughout nursing and beyond. Plus, I am a woman of curves. When I find clothing that covers my insecure areas, I jump all over it!

Not only is Boob Nursing Wear flattering, but it also makes breastfeeding in public so easy. Forget a nursing shawl or nursing cover! All you need is a fun and fashionable Boob Nursing top or dress.

Boob Nursing Wear has two layers of fabric over the bust area. Just pull up one side of the shirt or dress with one hand, hold your little one with the other, and voila - discreet nursing. No one sees anything except your baby!

I love that Boob goes by the OEKO-Tex Standard 100 when it comes to preparing and dying it's clothes. This Standard makes sure that the clothes are made in a way that is environmentally safe and completely free of toxins. I don't know about you, but I want clothes that are safe for me and my environment!
