@TinyLoveUSA - Tiny Princess Tales FUN With My Niece

I've told you before and I'll tell you again...
I LOVE BEING AN AUNTIE!

All products for this review/feature were sent free of charge by the company.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinion about the products.

My niece is starting to really grow and change SO MUCH!  
She's learning to use her hands, she's chewing on everything, she can almost sit up by herself and is quite the chatter box.  
She is also becoming her own little person and is so much fun to watch when she plays.
Man...I miss my kids being this little still!
Her parents love products/toys that give her the opportunity to hone in on her coordination skills, give her something fun to chew on (cause teeth are coming soon) and something she can chat with too (she's finding her voice).  
They are huge fans of the floor play mats for her, because she can lay under them on her tummy or back (they are safe) and she can be easily entertained with the colors, the sounds & music and the adorable critters she gets to play with.
TINY LOVE has sent several products for her to "try out" since she's been born!  The one line we hadn't tried yet is their Tiny Princess Tales line.  
While I believe my niece is going to grow to be a strong, independent woman...it's always fun to also offer a little princess element into her life.  
I mean, I am her auntie and I love ALL THINGS GIRLIE! 
Today, her Auntie (me) got to spend some quality time with her, while she helped me do this review/feature!
This Tiny Love Tiny Princess Tales Gymini Mat is the perfect blend of girlie and just down right adorable!  
It's so stinking cute!  
The critters have big friendly eyes, some of them rattle or make sounds when you shake them and the colors are perfect for a little girl to play with.   
The floor mat itself is nice and cushy, perfect for some floor time for baby.
Plus, it plays music and all the critters (Florence the Fawn, Albertina the Beaver, Jane the Squirrel and Nicole the Badger) are detachable, to move them around or hand them to her to chew on (because she is starting to teethe too).  LOVE IT!
MY NIECE WAS SMITTEN by it!  
She played and kicked and wiggled and grabbed!  
She loved the music and even the sounds it makes!  
Her mom loved watching her try it out and will be using this probably on a daily basis, to give her some necessary tummy time or even a few moments of not being held. 
The Tiny Love Tiny Princess Take Along Mobile is also AWESOME too!  
She is familiar with their take along mobiles, but this one has new critters, different colors and fun music too.   
I also loved that the underside of this mobile is in black/white, while the top part is in color.  
SO CUTE and SO UNIQUE!
Her mommy loves that it attaches to her crib (for entertainment when she wakes up from a nap) , stroller or even car seat and she can also play with it while learning to sit up (supported by a boppy).  
And hey, it even matches the bedding in her room!  
Kinda perfect, right?
Both of these products are ADORABLE, awesome for her continued learning of her fine motor skills.   They also provide noises and music that aren't SUPER annoying and very entertaining for baby.  
It's a WIN ALL THE WAY AROUND!
We haven't featured a single thing from Tiny Love that she hasn't loved!  
These two new things products are no exception.  
They will continue using not only with my niece, but future babies that might come about too.

New Summer Skincare With @PureBiology Products

OH SUMMER!  I'm so glad you're here!
Like SO GLAD!
All products for this review/feature were sent free of charge by the company.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting about these products.

It means plenty of days filled with outdoor fun, pool time and lots of sunscreen so we don't get burnt.
It also means that my "ALMOST" forty year old skin will be getting some summer freckles and color...which also means more wrinkles and aging.  
NOT A FAN!  Eeek!

So what's a mom to do?  
PureBiology just sent me two products to use this summer, in an effort to avoid further damage to my skin.  
These products are SOLD exclusively on Amazon.com and I am so excited to use them!
Do you use an eye cream?  
My mother in law has been telling me lately that it's a MUST for me...especially since I'm getting older.  So this TOTAL EYE product from PureBiology is the perfect thing for me to start using!  It has both immediate and lasting benefits.  It instantly lifts, firms and tightens skin.  It has Baobien Tien, which defends against the UV exposure (perfect for summer time) and provides added moisture and helps with optimal skin health.
But I am honestly most excited about this Vitamin C Plus Anti-Aging Serum - Fision Wrinkle Fix.  
I'm already starting to see fine lines and wrinkles that just keep getting deeper and more noticeable on my face.  It's frustrating, but part of the aging game, I guess.  This serum is made with 90% natural ingredients, hyaluronic acid and no artificial colors or filters.  It has a 30% concentration of Vitamin C, which is quite a bit more than other brands.  It's main goal though, is to reduce wrinkles, fine lines and even age spots.  SCORE!  I'll be using this all up for sure!
PureBiology has more products than the two I'm personally trying myself...including a Anti Hair Loss & Growth Stimulating Shampoo & Conditioner, Enhanced lash enhancement product, etc.

Graduation Party Success With @TheSparkleSoiree and @Pretty_Krumbs

I know...I know...
They only GRADUATED from Elementary and Middle School...
But I love a reason to celebrate our kids!

All products for this feature were sent free of charge by the company.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinion about these products.
So last night, we had a quick little party/aka family gathering to celebrate these two...as they move onto middle school and high school.
We decorated the house in black, white and gold.  
In fact, an Etsy store called @TheSparkleSoiree (who also happens to be a local mom in our area) created an amazing banner just for this event.
The letters are super glittery & adorable and every detail...down to the cap/gown and the diploma, were PERFECT for our little graduation party theme.
Our cake from @Pretty_Krumbs was pretty GOSH DARN PERFECT!






This AMAZING cake lady (who is a local small business) created this cake with so much details, I didn't want to cut into it to share it.  But the taste inside the cake was almost as good as the outside looked.  The cake was moist, the frosting NOT TOO SWEET and the kids (well some of them) loved chewing on the fondant.
 

The best way for me to cater this party, mid week (my kids are still in school with different pick up times than normal) was to order pizza's from Dominos for $5.99.  
SUCH A GOOD DEAL & their pizzas are good!
We had a veggie tray and some sodas too, because it's always fun to let the kids have a treat on occasion (we don't keep sodas in our house).
The PARTY WAS AN AWESOMELY FUN SUCCESS...especially thanks to the extra special details added from @TheSparkleSoiree and @Pretty_Krumbs !  
It just wouldn't have been the same without them.





CLICK HERE to check out The Sparkle Soiree's Etsy store.  Maybe she'll be working up some banners, cupcake toppers and cake toppers for your next party or gathering!
