Colorado State Fair - #OurSummerJourney and a Giveaway

Disclaimer: I received products  for review purposes. No other compensation was received. Though the product was free, opinions are 100% my very own.

The summer is winding down and this year I was able to do quite a lot. I've visited 2 zoos, went to a museum, went to a carnival, to a renaissance fair and just recently our state fair. I have to say that the fair was amazing and while I had fun I knew I was safe going to and from the fair thanks to Safety 1st and my amazing new car seat I received. Not only was my seat comfy and I was riding in style but I knew that I was sitting in an amazing car seat that would protect me in the event of a crash. September is Car Seat Safety Month but I'm going to be just a tad early. I was selected to be a Safety 1st Summer Ambassador and I was ecstatic because I get to share my adventure with you.

Bluum 31 Month Old Box - August 2014

* This post contains affiliate and referral links.

It seems like I just keep posting my subscription boxes later and later after I've received them. Please forgive me if you've been waiting to see what I received in my Bluum box this month. You may have noticed that we've been absent from the blog for the past couple of days. It's alright, I'll tell you why. See my big sister Krxssy headed off to college yesterday and mommy and I wanted to spend some time with her and not worry about the blogging or internet world. Sometimes you have to let go of technology. Don't you agree? Well letting go of technology means that I have now some catching up to do. Now for those who have been with me for a while may know what Bluum is all about. For those are just visiting me for the first time and have no idea what I'm talking about and wondering, what's Bluum? Let me tell you all about it. Bluum is a monthly subscription box for both mom and baby from pregnancy to age 5. Each month you receive a box of surprise goodies catered to your little one based on their age. Subscription costs $29/monthly but there are 3 other subscription plans, and the longer you subscribe the cheaper it becomes. You can get a 3 month subscription at $25/month, 6 months at $23/month and 12 months at $21/month all which needs to be paid upfront. If you're interested in what I got in my 30 month old box, take a look.

School Shopping at the Children's Place

Disclaimer: I received a gift card to facilitate my shopping trip. No other compensation was received. Opinions are however always 100% my very own. 

If you're a procrastinator like mommy or you just haven't had time to do finish up your back to school shopping as yet, may we suggest The Children's Place. There are a few places that we love to shop at and I have to say that this store is definitely one of them. The number one reason being that you can get a lot for your dollar. Well maybe not a dollar, but you get the idea. Mommy remembers shopping there with my oldest sister when she was a baby, and who just left for college, so you know that they have been around for quite some time. There are even photos of my brothers in their classic colorblock sweaters that they're famous for when they were younger. Yes The Children's Place was making color block cool before it even was. Mommy had to dig through her archive to find this picture and I know Krxssy is not going to be happy but don't they look cute? Not as cute as I am now though.

Back to School with J. Crew Crewcuts

Disclaimer: I received products  for review purposes. No other compensation was received. Though the product was free, opinions are 100% my very own. 

School is almost in session for everyone, but for those of us here in the West we have been in school for the past two weeks. When J. Crew contacted me wanting to send me a surprise back to school gift package I was honored. Why? Mommy and I just love their clothing. My brothers are big fans of Crewcuts, especially their underwear. Their clothing with their simple lines and designs are so underrated but it's what draws us to them. If you're looking for that special something for your little one, then check out J. Crew Crewcuts for back to school. Available is sizes 2 - 14.
