Viv & Lou Review

Ok You all know me and my monogrammed obsession right?!?! Well I found the Queen of all monogrammed companies!! It really has me wanting to scream from the roof tops! I may go monogramed crazy in my house!
I received these products free for review purposes but all opinions are 100% honest.

Here's what the peeps over at Viv & Lou had to say, "We invite you to shop Viv & Lou when an ordinary gift just won’t do! We combine quality, affordable personalized products and exceptional order turnaround times to create a fun and easy shopping experience for our customers. We strive for perfection because we understand the importance of quality products and excellent service!   If you need a one of a kind gift, want to tell someone how special they are, or just want a new stylish personalized product for yourself, you can find it at Viv & Lou!"

What is so impressive to me besides the amazing designs is the quality!! To me that is so important!! These products are so well made it blows me away! The customer service is the best I have ever dealt with and they truly care about their customers!! Don't even get me started on the price...it is so affordable and blows the doors of the prices I was previously paying at LL Bean and Pottery Barn! I'm serious when I say Viv & Lou is my new IT place for all things momma and Sophia. And all the lovies in my life during the holiday season!!

Shipping is super quick too!!!

It was so hard to choose a "favorite" out of everything I received but I'm totally loving the Large Navy Anchor Market Basket!!! I usually do peapod grocery delivery every other week but I need fresh fruits, veggies and meat throughout the week. I like to fly in and out of the grocery store as I'm not a huge fan. This Market Basket is perfect!! I am able to run in to the local Whole Foods fill it up and be on the go! No more bags to try and juggle all while holding Sophia! I have ventured out three times since I received my Viv & Lou goods and I have been stopped maybe 10+ times by people asking me where I purchased or just to say how cute it was! I love that it is inscribed in pink with my last name too! Swoon!

Next up was Sophia's Backpack and insulated lunch box! I LOVE this to pieces! Her first backpack! I had it monogramed with her full name! Eventually when she goes to grade school I will do initials but right now we are not to concerned with "stranger danger" as she is always with her momma! This backpack has been great, we have packed it up for fall walks, picnics, mall trips, you name it! It is the perfect size for her and I know it will be around for years and years!


OK I can't even handle Sophia and I's matching Mother and Daughter Monogramed Baseball Hats!!! These seriously have me in tears! I love to be matchy matchy with my girl and these are just precious! I love that we have the same initials too SLV!

Last but not least is my travel bag! Of course in my favorite NAVY anchors! Can you tell I'm a total Navy Brat at heart! Something about those anchors that bring me a sense of peace. We come from a long line of retired and active Navy military in my family. I am a proud Navy Daughter and I can't pass up anything that has anchors on it!!

Lotus Bumz Review

Sophia Loves To Be Naked!!! Yes, like ALL the time! I can usually keep a shirt on her but pants is usually a No Go! I almost leapt out of my skin when I got my Lotus Bumz package in the mail for review! Insert the cutest ruffle butt cloth diaper EVER here! Sophia is totally styling in this thing! Not to mention in the world of cloth diapers this one has topped the cake for us!!! It is not only super stylish but super absorbent as well!!

I received this product free for review purposes but all opinions are 100% honest.

I know I have done a ton of diaper reviews and you are probably wondering... well why Lotus Bumz??? I think they answer this best, "Why Use Lotus Bumz Cloth Diapers? There are significant environmental benefits that come with reusable diapers. Did you know that over 27.4 billion disposable diapers are consumed every year in the US alone? They will take centuries to decompose. Plus, the amount of carbon emitted in the production of one disposable diaper is roughly the same as that emitted after washing a cloth diaper 200 times (in cold water). Some babies may be sensitive to the chemicals and plastic used in disposable diapers. Cloth is a gentler, and more natural option. Cost is a large factor for many people. Lotus Bumz Cloth diaper system will help you save a lot of money! The initial outlay for Modern Cloth Diapers may seem large – they may cost you $250-$600 initially. However, if you calculate the cost of disposable diapers over a period of 2-3 years (the average baby is in diapers for 2.5 years, costing $2500-$4500), they will save you lots of money! If you have more than one child, then the savings will be huge!"

It is time to start thinking about the earth and our babies futures!! I love that my family is saving money and the environment all at the same time! Not to mention Sophia's sensitive skin, she really needs the best of the best and Lotus Bumz is it! I can't wait to get her in the matching cloth diaper and legwarmers soon! You have to go check out what they have, you can purchase HERE!
Don't forget to like Lotus Bumz on Facebook too!
 If that wasn't reason enough to Fall In LOVE with LOTUS BUMZ this will be.... They are giving away not one but TWO cloth diapers to one of my readers!!! Winner will be chosen at random via rafflecopter on November 1st! GoodLuck!!

BunchaFarmers Review

I have Fallen in Love with a Bunch a Farmers ;) Pun intended! For real the Company, "BunchaFarmers" They are AMAZING!!!! Time to throw out your chemically processed soaps and go ALL NATURAL!!! I was thrilled to receive some amazing goods from this fabulous company!

I received three amazing bars of soap...one went missing found it in Ralph's bathroom (he is hooked too!) There are Three types to choose from. Manuka and Lavender, Manuka and Lemongrass and Manuka and Oatmeal.

"These all natural soaps are perfect for people with sensitive skin or if you want a more moisturizing feel from your soap, Manuka Honey and Lavender is calming and soothing the Manuka Honey and Lemongrass deodorizes and refreshes the Manuka Honey and Oatmeal is non scented with the goodness of oatmeal and honey. Our soaps are all handmade here in Ontario using only the finest of ingredients. Manuka Honey and Lavender: Palm Oil,Coconut oil, olive oil, Manuka honey,lavender,lye and water. Manuka Honey and Lemongrass: Palm Oil, Coconut oil, Olive oil, lemongrass,coffee grinds, lye and water. Manuka Honey and Oatmeal: Palm Oil, Coconut Oil, Olive oil, Oatmeal, lye and water."

Cloth diapering our little one has been an up and down struggle. As much as I love cloth diapering removing stains from her cloth diapers became pain staking! Well that was until BunchaFarmers Stain Stick!! It is seriously Magical!!! Her cloth diapers are restored and I don't feel like I have to toss them in the trash! The stain stick is so easy to use and once its in the wash, does its job!! Here is a description on this Magic Stick!!

"How many times have you had perfectly good clothes ruined by stains? Or avoided buying white clothes and linens because stains are just too hard to remove? Well, no more. Buncha Farmers All Natural Stain Remover works on grass, red wine, ketchup, blood, grease, underarm stains, and so much more. Even the most stubborn stains are washed away. Your favourite blouse, your grandmother’s lace tablecloth, your child’s car seat, even your walls and carpets – all of them can be treated with All Natural Stain Remover. Ordinary stain removers contain chemical detergents, but Buncha Farmers All Natural Stain Remover is real soap. It’s made with all-natural, biodegradable ingredients, coconut oil, palm or soya oil, canola oil, litsea cubeba essential oil, eucalyptus essential oil, lye, water and enhanced with borax to soften the water and aid the cleaning process. There are no artificial dyes or perfumes, just the fresh, clean scent of natural eucalyptus and the deodorizing power of litsea. Will not discolour clothes or fabrics. Best of all, it works. "NOTE" If you encounter a very stubborn stain like blueberry or a baked in stain,you might have to apply the stain remover a couple of times or work at it by hand. it should start to fade and fade until you get it out. "TIPS": Cut or scrape off a little of the bar and throw in with your regular wash, it will energize your laundry load. Works Great with Soap Nuts! Clean your shoes or remove the ink of your leather jacket or purse. Melt in Hot water and just spray or rub on carpet surfaces or car seats to get rid of stains and grime. You Know the dirt that builds up on your nylon jacket around the cuffs well Presto! it's gone with the natural stain remover. removes mold from surfaces especially in your fridge."

New England weather is in full swing, so the cold is creeping on all our doors! I love to keep my lips extra smooth which becomes a task in the blistering winter months! I was so happy to receive some all natural chapstick as well!! I'm addicted! Get ready Family and Friends you will be receiving some Rocking Stuffing Stuffers this year! Give them a try, you wont be disappointed!!!!

All About BunchaFarmers,

"We started our company in the summer of 2006 with a group of farmers and local artisans. We were all from the Greater Toronto Region, Durham Region and Region of York in Central Ontario. We opened our first store on one of our members Farms in Stouffville. Unfortunately we could not all agree on the direction of the company and some of us dropped out. The remaining few shareholders opened a new location in Queensville, on another farm with a country store. There we started to develop organic and natural products for Wholesale and distribution. Our customers came to love our products and so our Wholesale business began to grow. As a result of the success of our Wholesale business we shut down the retail operation to focus on distributing our products across Canada and the U.S. The products on our website are the only ones we can ship nationally and internationally. Some of our other products we can only ship locally. They too will be featured on our website in the coming year for local customers. I am happy to say that at least one of our products is available in every Province and Territory in Canada and about 12 to 15 States. We also own and operate three Farmers' Markets . Info on these markets is available on our website!"

You can Purchase your Goods HERE!!!!! The prices are Fabulous and such wonderful quality!! I'm so happy to have found an all natural brand that doesn't cost a fortune! Our health is important, time for a change!

Tori's Natural Deodarant Review


  • Aluminum-free & Paraben-free underarm deodorant for women that works! 
  • Tori's strives to raise awareness about the possible health hazards correlated with the use of many mainstream deodorants on the market today. 
  • Our motto is "Love Life". We help our customers to live with peace of mind knowing they are purchasing a product that not only helps their own health, but is made in the USA and gives back 2% of its profits to support Breast Cancer and Alzheimer's research as well.
I received Tori's Powder Fresh:
"Our powder fresh scent is the perfect mix between baby powder and floral fragrances, leaving you smelling 'Powder Fresh" all day long."
I received this product free for review purposes but all opinions are 100% honest.

I also received Tori's Unscented:
"Our unscented choice is perfect for those who are sensitive to fragrances or who don't want it to clash with their perfume. Don't be fooled though, it is still effective in leaving you smelling TORI'S fresh all day long!"

I love both but the Unscented is My favorite!! Being a breastfeeding mama I don't want anything near my babies nose that could harm or annoy her! This deodorant is the BEST of the BEST! Not only is it safe for me but also safe for my baby!! The deodorant runs for $5.99 and they also have package deals! Such a great price!!! Not only that, you are donating to AMAZING causes as well!! Tori's donates 2% of all sales to Breast Cancer and Alzheimer's research!
After doing my own research on the deodorant I was using prior to Tori's I was SHOCKED! Not in a good way either! I couldn't believe the amount of harsh cancer causing ingredients were used in this well known name brand! I'm so careful about what I but IN my body it is really time to be careful about what I put ON my body! It has been a week since I received Tori's Natural Deodorant and I'm hooked! It works better than the ones I have used prior and its not harmful!! The holidays are coming up, these would make the perfect stocking stuffers for family and friends too!

Time To Start Living NATURALLY!!!

Sprinkle and Sparkle Review

As I start to go through the thousands of pictures from Sophia's Big Rodeo FIRST Birthday I can't help but smile when I think of all the little details! We had so many sponsors but a few really tugged at my heartstrings! Sprinkle and Sparkle being one of them! Not only are they a fabulous Etsy Shop they have the most functional items that really keep the party going! It was a beautiful fall day although there was a breeze! If we didn't have the most amazing cloth weights the table cloths and burlap runners would have surely went flying! Everything they sent was just magical!

A little about the peeps over at Sprinkle and Sparkle.

"Sprinkle and Sparkle came about because of two neighbors who love to craft and share. We both have beautiful families. We have fun getting together and sharing. Experimenting is fun for us and adding a little Sprinkle and Sparkle to something is always a plus. We hope you enjoy our items as much as we love to create them. We also welcome any custom requests, just ask."

"Our table cloth weights will make a bold statement!! They are not the kind that will get lost on a table. They range from one strand to three strands. They can also be used as ornaments, sun catchers, or umbrella jewelry."

"We ship priority, but will work with you to get best shipping price. Everything in our shop is ready to ship. Custom orders need more time."

Yes they are Fabulous!! The customer service is Amazing and you really get that personal touch when ordering!

Why I LOVE Sprinkle and Sparkle:

Set of table cloth weights help keep your table cloth in place
  • Perfect for your next outdoor gathering
  • Set of four weights with clips
  • Never worry about your tablecloth flying away again
  • There is a design for every occasion!

  • What I received for Sophia's Party from Sprinkle and Sparkle...denim tablecloth, six napkin rings, 6 pink bandanas for napkins, set of 4 cowgirl tablecloth weights, cowgirl picture frame, denim canister.
    This adorned a few different areas, I had the cloth weights on Sophia's Head Table at the Party, along with the kids using the Special Rodeo Napkins. The denim table cloth was the Guest book area where I had the beautiful frame and canister filled with flowers! It really is the details that make events so special and these surely did!!

    Raw Edge Sewing Co. Review

    Raw Edge Sewing has Stolen my Heart!!! I can not Rave enough about this Magical Etsy Shop!!! Sophia's High Chair was a pretty Big Focal Point of the party so I wanted it Super Cute!!! When Raw Edge Sewing Became a Sponsor for Sophia's Party I went Crazy (in a good way!) This is what we had in store.....

    I hunted High and Low for an old wooden High Chair just for this Purpose...It was found and painted!! Ofcouse when she was cute sitting in it but when it came time to bust out the camera she lost it....It was a pretty rough teething day and we went with the motto... "It's MY Party and I'll Cry if I want too" song (come on you guys remember it right?!? from Problem Child the movie!) Well it was one of those day's! She had a Blast but a few rough patches!
    What the peeps at Raw Edge Sewing Co. had to say about this,
    "So fun, your baby is 1! Or 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, etc.! I can customize your banner for any age, just let me know when you check out what number/s you would like. I can customize colors as well.

    Besides using this banner on your child's high chair, consider using it for a birthday party decor, photo shoot prop or toddler bedroom/nursery wall-hanging.

    I can customize your banner for any occasion, let's put our heads together and see what we can come up with!

    This listing consists of a 6" X 9" (approx.) burlap flag with your child's age. It is strung on 70" of jute twine with several trims and fabric to coordinate this rustic banner. Trims will be the same or similar to those featured in this listing.

    Just tie the banner around the high chair sides to secure it and use velcro dots or tape (not provided) to insure that it stays in place.

    Burlap will fray when exposed to wind. Of course, this absolutely adds to the rustic beauty of this birthday banner. If you’re concerned about it fraying too much, I recommend avoiding long term outdoor exposure."

    It is currently hanging on our Fireplace. I don't think I can part with it...anytime soon! It may be a permanent fixture! And it totally goes with our motif. :)

    You really have to check out Raw Edge Sewing Co. They have it all! Great customer service and oh so Beautiful!!!! We are forever fans!! Go Shop HERE and Follow on Pinterest HERE, Like on Facebook HERE

    Invitation Station Review

    SOPHIA'S 1st RODEO Birthday was AMAZING!!!! Even down to the invitations! I knew I wanted to do something special so when I found out Invitation Station Etsy Shop was sponsoring Sophia's party I almost died! Instead of regular invitations they were actual tickets to get into Sophia's Rodeo!!! Seriously the cutest things EVER!!!  They have Custom photo invitation designs for all of your party needs! You Print your own 4x6 or 5x7 files which was super easy and Specializing in impressive, personalized "ticket" invites! I don't think I will ever go back to regular invitations again!!!
    This was one of the personal touches that I received the most compliments on from friends and family they thought it was hysterical and just plain adorable!!!

    Here are some Fun Facts (from Invitation Station) about the ones we received:


    Saddle up for fun with these rodeo style birthday party ticket invitations. Perfect for your little cowgirl or cowboy! Kids, teens and adults will love them!

    Your choice of RED, PINK or BLUE design.

    Please note that this listing is for a personalized, high resolution digital file (jpeg) ONLY! The file size is 4"x6" and can easily be printed at a very low cost (typically 10 or 15 cents a piece) at a photo lab of your choice (i.e. Walmart, Snapfish, Winkflash, etc.). Of course, there is no reason why you couldn't print these at home on your own printer should you choose.

    If you choose to have these "tickets" printed as 4"x6" photos, please note that there will be white borders on both the left and right hand sides. Simply trim away and you will have yourself an impressive, true-to-size ticket invitation which measures approximately 2 1/4" x 6" in size!
