BabyHawk Mei Tai Carrier #Review + #Giveaway {Open to U.S.}


Disclosure: I received a free Mei Tai carrier from BabyHawk in order to facilitate the following review. All opinions are my own. This blog complies with FTC advertising guidelines. Participating bloggers are not responsible for prize fulfillment.

Getting around with two kids was fairly simple without having to wear either one of them. When my third daughter and last child came into the world just four months ago, I was determined to wear her and keep her as close to me as possible. I tried a few wraps and carriers and nothing really worked for me. I’m a busy working mom and I need simplicity in some areas of my life. A carrier that requires detailed step-by-step instructions and leaves me frustrated doesn’t mesh with my lifestyle. I envy the super-babywearing mothers who can figure them out in a snap!

Bubble Blowing 101 With Juicy Fruit #JuicyFruitFunSide #shop

Disclosure: This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #JuicyFruitFunSide #CollectiveBias

I can vividly remember when I learned how to blow a bubble with chewing gum on the ratty brown couch in our old living room. We moved out of that house when I was halfway through high school and it has since burned down, been rebuilt and gone through multiple families. I grew up there and have a plethora of great childhood memories throughout that little piece of land, to the old willow tree that is no longer there to the garage roof we used to climb on and the expansive back yard that held many of our baseball games with the clothesline pole representing first base. Since I knew how to chew gum without spinning a web of it through my hair, I’ve enjoyed the great taste of Juicy Fruit. We used to take a short walk down the road, up the hill and into the old Village Pantry to pick up a 25 cent five stick pack of Juicy Fruit.

Buy and Sell Gently Worn Children’s Clothing With Loteda + 20% off!

School is starting in a few weeks and of course I am procrastinating with the school shopping! My oldest daughter requires new clothes each year. By the end of the school year, we have holes in the knees of her jeans, stained up shirts and clothes that are just too small. Because of this, I don’ t like to spend a fortune on clothing for my kids. Loteda allows me to buy gently used children’s clothing for far less than retail price. With boys and girls sizes from newborn to 5, they have a wide range of name brand clothes. You can purchase these clothes by the lot. Not only can you purchase, you can sell when your kids grow out of their clothes. Loteda is the only site where you can buy your child’s clothes for an entire season in just one transaction.

#Win Classic Games From Winning Moves Games! #Giveaway {Open to U.S.}


Disclosure: I received free products from Winning Moves Games in order to facilitate the following review. All opinions are my own. Kara’s Deals & Steals is not responsible for prize fulfillment.

Thanks to Winning Moves Games, my game collection has grown significantly. They have a great selection of classic games, like Twister, Yahtzee, Trouble, Aggravation and more. With their selection, you can easily plan a family game night. 

Super Big Boggle is a supersized version of Boggle, featuring a 6×6 grid with a NEW double letter cube. Thirty-six letter cubes and a four minute timer give this game more variety than the regular version. My six year old daughter is still a little too young to completely grasp this game, but she is learning to read and spell words. Some of her spellings are still pretty funny though because she bases them off of the initial sound the letter makes. This game is more suitable for ages 8+.

Taking Better Care Of My Teeth With Crest Pro-Health Products #TartarRinse


Disclosure: I received this product for free from Smiley360 in exchange for my honest review. You can join Smiley360 here! This blog complies with FTC advertising guidelines.

I must admit that I have neglected my teeth over the past ten years. My mom used to be a stickler, taking me to my check-ups twice a year, but since venturing out on my own and being without dental insurance, I just didn’t make it a priority. This year, now working at a place with great insurance and with fear in the pit of my stomach, I decided to set up an appointment at a new place in town. I’m so glad I went. I had the expected cavities, which were filled during three other appointments. Not fun, but it needed to be done and although my teeth are now terribly sensitive, at least they are still my own teeth and won’t be going anywhere soon.
