House of Doolittle Review

Disclosure2013 photo Disclosure2013_zps93640645.jpg

As a blogger I use quite a bit of office supplies. I was trying to use Post-it notes to remember to get things done, but eventually they would disappear. Every time I would lose my little lists of things to do I would end up forgetting to do something. So when I was sent the House of Doolittle Business Planner it was my saving grace. I am now able to write things in and remember to look in my planner to see what I have coming up. Even with all the new technology available I prefer writing my plans down, I tend to remember it better this way.

I love that I can write in what I need to do during the week and it even has time slots. This business planner is awesome, but the House of Doolittle 2014 Calendar that I received is perfect to remember things with a quick glance. It fits on my computer desk and the squares are the perfect size to write in my reminders. 

There are so many great promotional products that you can personalize for your business, blog or school. You can even have promotional shirts made for any event or for your employees to wear. I really like going through the Shoplet site and looking at all their great products and what could make my life a little easier. There is office stationary available for my readers in the UK.

Chicco NaturalFit Bottle & Pacifier Review

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Chicco. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and as a thank you for participating.

Chicco recently came out with their NaturalFit Advanced Feeding & Soothing System. I was given the Chicco NaturalFit bottles and pacifiers to review. My son Nikolas was just born at the end of November, and let me tell you the last six weeks have been a learning experience. When Nikolas was born I was trying to strictly breastfeed only but he was becoming dehydrated and I did not know why. I had to supplement but I still tried to breastfeed. After two weeks my milk never came in, so I had no choice but to bottle feed him. Finding the right bottle for him has been difficult. So when these NaturalFit bottles came in, I was hopeful they would work for him. 

The very first NaturalFit bottle I fed him with we had no problems! I am happy to say he loves these bottles, the shape of the nipples are exactly what he needed. Just to see what he would do we tried one of his older bottles and he wasn't having it. 

That's Nikolas enjoying his new bottle.
The NaturalFit silicone nipples are made to feel like a mother's breast. They are flexible and have twin anti-colic valves to prevent too much air from being swallowed. The stage 1 bottle is called the squeezing stage. The stage 2 nipple is rounded and your baby is able to adjust the flow with his/her needs. The stage 3 has an elongated nipple to support older babies sucking motion.

I gave him one of the Chicco NaturalFit pacifiers but he spit them right out. He is already attached to a specific pacifier, but the Chicco pacifiers seem like a great  If you are looking for a great gift for a new mom or you are a new mom yourself then you should definitely get the Chicco NaturalFit Advanced Feeding & Soothing System. The Chicco NaturalFit Advanced Feeding & Soothing System is exclusively at buybuy Baby. You can purchase any of the bottles at your local buybuy Baby or at the Chicco website.

Dress First Has Your Perfect Prom Dress!

Disclosure2013 photo Disclosure2013_zps93640645.jpg

Celebrating Prom is like getting to be a princess for a night. Every girl wants to be wearing the dress that will make heads turn. While I was in high school I went to several dances, of course prom is the one dance that I remember most. Finding the right dress can be slightly stressful, but it is completely worth it. I can recall the frustration my mom and I had as we shopped around looking through many prom dresses.

Wear a Shearling Coat to Stay Warm This Winter

Disclosure2013 photo Disclosure2013_zps93640645.jpg

Shearling is an organic material, typically originating from the skin of a lamb or a sheep, or the pelt from another animal. After the animal has been sheared (hence the term "shearling"), the removed wool is processed and tanned so that it has a smooth consistency and an even color tone. Shearling is not very heavy, but it is soft and smooth, and can be very insulating. Its light material makes it ideal as a coat lining or even for a sweater, since it adds insulation without unnecessary bulk. Typically the lighter in color a swatch of shearling is, the more expensive it is, since it took more post-processing to create that particular color.

Shearling coats offer elegance, luxury, and warmth, and such a coat is considered by many women to be the ultimate cold weather indulgence. Shearling may also be used as a lining for leather slippers or coats, but more often can be found on coats for women. This winter season, bundle up in a shearling coat, a thick scarf, and a snazzy hat or a pair of ear muffs, and you'll be all set for the runway, a brisk walk in the park, or even a quick run to the grocery store.

Happy New Year, Now What?!

Well New Years has come and gone, I took some time to reflect on my blogging. I am trying to make some improvements. After the tumultuous year I had in 2013, I needed to take a little time to figure out if I wanted to continue blogging. Without a question I love blogging, but so many things happened in my personal life that I wanted to make sure that I should continue on.
