The Oogieloves have arrived!

Have you seen the Oogieloves? My daughter was very much in love with the commercials so we decided to go opening day and it was far better than any preview. When you arrive they give you butterfly glow stick wands to help the butterflies across the screen. This was a great sanity savor as we waited for the show to begin. From the first song and dance to the last balloon found the movie held little misses attention and she actually got up out of her seat to participate. The whole movie is a great interactive experience that will keep even the antsy kids occupied. We have since learned the "milk shake dance" and the Oogieloves cheer. I must emphasize that I received nothing for posting-I really just loved the movie and reached out to the makers of the movie AFTER we were home and the movie was long over. It was that great of an afternoon that I wanted to find a way to make each and every one of you an Oogieloves fan! So what can you win?
It's an Oogieloves Kids Prize Pack with a value of approximately $150 that includes:
Tent, Mobile, Glitter Tattoos (2), Stickers (2), Beach Balls (2)

The Holidays will be here before we know it-enter to win a Raggedy Ann Doll below!

 Do you remember Raggedy Ann & Raggedy Andy? I had a Raggedy Ann doll when I was young and absolutely loved her! I pulled her out of a set of old boxes the other day and was amazed at how simplistic she was yet she was one of my favorite dolls. To my surprise my daughter also loves her...she actually plays with Raggedy Ann over all her dolls that walk, talk, sing, dance, etc. Isn't it amazing how simplicity never goes out of style? I feel like we need to get back to the basics with our children and nurture their imagination instead of giving them toys that sets the stage for playtime. How imaginative can you be when a doll is talking back and has a preprogrammed dialogue? Lucky for us Aurora has released a variety of the classic Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy rag dolls and Fancy Pals. These dolls are just the right amount of modern while keeping the classic feel-each doll had handmade pieces that include fine facial features and classic yarn loop style hair. The dolls are available in a variety of sizes including 8", 12", 16", and 25" with a starting price point of $10.

Just look at that amazing detail-whichever you choose it is sure to spark imagination and creativity long after the batteries die on the talking, walking, dancing dolls.
Since my daughter is very much into Raggedy Ann we decided to get a Fancy Pals:

She loves to carry her butterfly purse and has made her new Raggedy Ann one of her favorite "tiny dolls". Aurora is set to release four holidays styles later this year including "Chilly Chic" and "Santa's Helper".  All of the items are great for any child ages 18 months and up and will truely be something they can treasure long after teh snow melts.

Enter to win S.L.U.G Zombies

So do you remember how fun it was to collect things when you were little? I remeber collecting everything from pogs, ponnies, and rocks. Lucky for me my daughter has also inhertied my "collecting" habits. Since going to school she has become very into little figurines including S.L.U.G Zombies. There are over 100 figures available to collect in single packs, three packs, and coffin-shaped 12-packs. Each zoombie comes with their own name and personal story. The older kids loved learning about their new friends but the little ones made up their own daughter named her zombie Alex and he worked at Target. Oh the silly things that she comes up-makes me wonder if we go to Target to often! I know it is only August but what a great thing to hand out for Halloween at school instead of the same old candy!

Curently you can find S.L.U.G Zombies at Toys'r'Us and Walgreens but they are set to hit all major retailers at the end of August. Do you think your kids would love the zombies? Use the rafflecopter form below to win your own three pack!

Back to school are you ready?

Ah back to school time-what a great time to redo the closet! Now my daughter is young so we are always buying new clothes but I like to use back to school time to update my closet as well. One of my new favorite online sites is Oasap which is a great online site that offers worldwide free shipping! You know how I feel about online shopping and free shipping-it is a must! Oasap offers such a wide variety of styles it is incredible. There is something for every fashionista and I have found several pieces that will allow me to update my wardrobe and style with a few simple pieces. Here is my new love:
I tend to wear a ton of black and white so I am really looking to update my shoe collection. I need shoes that are both practical and trendy which seems to be hard to find. I was so pleased with the shoe collection at Oasap and the speed of shipping. I cannot wait to continue to expand my shoe collection and boots during winter! 

A must have- Chilly Jilly

So we are finally back from vacation-I have so much to share about my experience and the local products I have found while away. One of my favorite new discoveries while away was the Chilly Jilly which is a super functional wrap. We were on a boat for seven days and while the days were warm the restaurants and nights were unpredictable. The Chilly Jilly is a lightweight easy to carry wrap that can fit in any bag. The Chilly Jilly comes with a silk bag that can fit into your bag and can easily be pulled out when the temperature drops. Here is the silk bag:

It is so easy to just toss in your purse and not have to worry about carrying a sweater which can easily wrinkle and can be bulky.  The wrap itself is so soft and keeps you very warm. I was surprised at how well the wrap worked since it was so light and airy. I loved that I did not have to carry a sweater with me all over because I had my wrap it could be worn for any occasion.

Chilly Jilly also offers jackets, gloves, and my other personal favorite the Duelette. It is a bracelet that functions as a hairband. I loved wearing it on the cruise as a bracelet and if the wind was out of control I had a hairband without having to hunt all over. This are perfect for back to school and work-what a quick way to throw your hair up with a grown up me I have been known to use my daughters Cinderella hair bands in a pinch!

All Chilly Jilly products are available for purchase online and at various retail locations. Enter your zip code here to find a store near you!

Enter to win OOFOS Sandals

 Looking for the perfect pair of sandals? I love to wear flip flops and sandals but they are terrible on my feet. OOFOS Sandals are not just sandals they are a great pair of shoes for anybody! The sandals absorb 37% of the impact and shock which makes it a great supportive sandal. I know I spend most of my time in shoes that do not require socks and find that my feet felt awful before trying OOFOS Sandals. I was a bit skeptical that they sandal would make any difference but they are like wearing soft little clouds. Usually when I wear the flat traditional flip flops my feet are killing me at the end of the day but the great design of the OOFOS kept my feet happy. I took them on vacation with me last week and wore them on a two mile stroll and all over the cruise ship with no complaints. I am also super pleased with how quick the shoes dry-great for going from the pool to everyday wear.  The shoes are available in women sizes 4-11 and mens size 7-14 in the OOriginal thong or OOahh slide. Look at all the great colors available in the OOrigainal thong:
