Song Bird is what it's called. My daughter got so many compliments on it! She loved it! On my daughter the pants/carpi's didn't go all the way down to her feet. They were just above her ankles.

"I got a new bag today" I tell my fiance. ::he rolls his eyes:: "Another one?" He says. LOL Are you bag obsessed like I am? I am! I have a bag for EVERYTHING!! Wet bags, swimming bags, totes, green bags for the store and of course my purses!

I am thrilled to tell you all about a shop on Etsy called YellowBlueBag. It's a cute lil' shop that has many styles of purses and adorable crochet baby blanket, booties and clothing!

Here's a little bio on the owner:

As a little girl I dreamt of becoming ballerina or an artist. Since I’ve never taken a ballet lessons, my first dream was never realized. However, I did get to study art in college and has been pursuing creativity most of my life.

I love color. I love its complexity and unique ability to communicate without any words. I also love to take something as simple as a ball of yarn, or a piece of fabric, and make something functional out of it.

Yellowblue{bag} is not simply a lesson in color theory, or a transliteration of a phrase in my native language (even though it is both, and you can ask me about this if you are really curious ;) , but it is an overflow of my unending creativity and everyday life.

Here is the bag I got to review:

I love this fabric it drew me in! Red Poppies!
  • This roomy bag is perfect for carrying all your stuff around with style. Whether you are a new mom with lots of diapers, blankets and toys to carry with you everywhere you go, a just looking for a cute bag for School or Work - you'll love this bag!
  • The outside of the bag is made from a sturdy upholstery fabric in Red on Yellow Poppy print. The inside lining is matching red and yellow on white floral cotton fabric.
  • The bag has outside pockets on both sides, which are great for smaller items like keys and phone. Another pocket is on the inside of the bag.
  • Dimensions: 16 inch wide, 10.5 inch tall, 6 inch deep. Handles are 21 inch long – perfect to carry on your shoulder.
  • The bag is lined with fusible fleece which makes it very sturdy. The bag holds its shape and stands on its own (as shown in pictures, photographed empty.)
  • Care Instructions: machine wash on gentle cycle, dry on low setting.
  • Made in her smoke free and pet free home.
  • This bag is made to order in 3-4 days after purchase.

Smoobee no cry magic brush reivew and giveaway

Does your child HATE to have her hair bushed? I know mine does. It's a rough part of our morning routine. Well, listin up! I have a MAGIC BRUSH that will take care of that problem. It's a brush called Smoobee. Funny name huh? Smoobee. It reminds me of how well the brush "smoooobeessss" our her hair! I first received this brush and read the testimonial's. Here's what one mom said: "“Smoobee is a life saver! It even works on wet hair. Samantha (7) can take a bath, towel up and we brush her hair in 5 minutes. It takes a bit longer than dry hair but it works and there is no crying.” Jonathan H., Birmingham, AL I was a little sceptical. A "magic brush". So I tryed it and I love it too! It’s a no tangle hair brush that kids absolutely love! Shouldn’t girls love to brush their hair? Absolutely! But as parents, we have been taught to believe that the crying and whining is a part of growing up and part of brushing our kids’ hair. This is simply not true. Having the right brush makes a world of difference

 Smoobee was uniquely designed to effectively brush through hair without snagging or catching. It works! It’s great for straight hair, wavy hair, and curly hair. For intensely curly hair, it will still take much effort but at least Smoobee can make it fun. It glides threw my daughters hair with ease. Another fun thing about Smoobee is they come with stickers!!! Yes,stickers!!! Your daughter can "bling" her hair brush. It also comes in three colors. Pink, purple and aqua green. My daughter calls her purple brush PURPLELICIOUS!
Having a birthday party or a play date? Smoobee would be perfect for that!
Thanks to the generosity from the people at Smoobee, one of my US readers will win a brush of their very own. This giveaway will end on June 10, 2012. Good luck to all!!
