Spring Cleaning with #PampersWipes (+ Giveaway)

Have you started your Spring Cleaning? I have!! I actually have enlisted my kids to help and it’s been a great success! I don’t like my kids to touch harsh cleaning chemicals and Pampers has the PERFECT solution! Pampers Sensitive Wipes are 20% thicker than regular Pampers wipes and have the unique Softgrip Texture, which means less wiping for more gentle cleaning.

Sensitive Wipes give babies and kids Pampers’ best gentle spring clean. I use Pampers Sensitive Wipes to give my girls a best gentle clean. My middle daughter is super messy and we go through TONS of wipes each day. My kids always need them during or after meal time. We also use them at night and wipe their feet down on non bath nights. Pampers Wipes are great for sensitive skin and I never worry about my kids skin breaking out or having a reaction.

In our home, we use Pampers wipes to clean baseboards (the kids do the cleaning of those!) and to clean our microfiber couches. We have found that they are very cost effective and gentle.

Giveaway:

Pampers sent me a Gentle Spring Cleaning prize pack with lots of goodies to help facilitate “gentle” spring cleaning and they are teaming up with me to give one away to a lucky reader as well! Enter to win this awesome prize pack by leaving a comment on this blog post with what YOU use Pampers wipes to clean.

Moms know the key “must-have” to help survive a messy day with baby is the everyday use of Pampers Sensitive Wipes. Pampers Sensitive Wipes are not only a key staple to every diaper bag and nursery, but we find that they become mom’s best friend when it comes to cleaning just about anything!.

Review: The Happy’s Chase & Play Ball… Puppy fun for everyone #TheHappys (+ Giveaway)

unnamed

We were sent a new fun pet to play with! My kids have been begging to get another dog, and we travel a ton…so it isn’t really up for discussion right now. We were so excited that we received Chance to play with. He seems to keep their begging to a minimum and they love him!

You will be able to purchase these next month and your kids will love them.
Check out this commercial to learn more about The Happy’s! Pretty exciting, huh?

Chance is part of the The Happy’s. He is adorable and does tricks and is interactive. From doing tricks for Happy Treats to racing after their Chase & Play ball, The Happy’s really play with you! Just like real puppies and kittens, they love to spin, sit, pounce and play. You can even train The Happy’s to do more tricks with the interactive Happy Treats. The Happy’s will be in stores this spring and will make a perfect addition to Easter baskets everywhere! They were very easy to play with. Simply install batteries (not included) and turn it on. So easy! They work on both tile and carpet.

ENDED: Enchanted Fairy Tales Photography Review and Tips (+ Giveaway)

COURTNEY SOSLSTAD_0014_Web

We were invited to check out all of the fun that Enchanted Fairy Tales has to offer. I did not tell my girls in advance as I knew they would ask me every day until we got to go check it out! It was so fun to get to the studio and see their faces light up! Each of my three little princesses were treated to hair, make up, nails painted and an awesome photo shoot. They felt like movie stars.

I wasn’t sure what to expect but knew the photos that I had seen online were breathtaking. Here are a few tips that will help make your Enchanted Fairy Tales Photo session a huge success:

1.) Have your daughters hair free of tons of hair products so they stylist’ can curl and doll up their hair.

2.) Bring snacks/drinks. The staff at Enchanted Fairy Tales was so sweet to offer us water, and we took them up on it. I always pack extra individual snacks that can be easily consumed and they came in handy on this day. Since I had three kiddos to get dolled up and photos taken, we were there for a good while.

3.) Have your daughter wear shorts. She will be wearing their clothes over, but the skirt is not full enough to cover and they ask you to bring shorts.

4.) Take your camera, not just your mobile phone. There is a fun red carpet area for them to model and walk the walk! My girls LOVED this and it was a great time passer for two of the three while the weren’t having their photos taken.

5.) Be prepared to put your cell phone away. While in the photo studio, you are not to take photos anything. I am ALWAYS on my phone so this was a bit of a struggle to put away. Since I had three kiddos and we did photos with them together, then apart we were there for a while.

6.) Make your appt to view the photos either right after the photo session or on another day. I actually recommend doing it on another day. When we got to view the photos right after and I wish I didn’t have my kids with me during this process as we had to leave to do a bathroom break and it was hard to concentrate. I truely loved ALL of the photos and narrowing it down was SOOO SOO hard!

7.) These are not just quickly shot photos, so be prepared to pay premium prices for high quality edited prints, canvas, photo books and more.

girls

I have not personally seen them on Groupon, but a few of my friends have. If you see a Groupon deal, snatch it up! Your little one will feel like such a prince or princess when they are given one on one time and attention. The hair, make up, finger nail painting, glitter lotion all made my girls feel like they owned the place. I must admit, I have never seen them so dolled up and angelic.  Your little one will get to choose what color they want for their outfit, and everything will feel so personalized to them. The photo sessions tell a story…we loved the reading of books, holding a treasure box, and kissing frogs the most! Totally adorable!

GIVEAWAY:

I know you want to win a 30 minute photo session for upt0 3 kiddos, a $25 Donation to N.Texas Food Bank will be waived and a (1) 8×10 photo and this fun experience for your little one, then enter this giveaway! I want to help Enchanted Fairy Tales to grow their social media channels so I am asking that you leave a comment about your thoughts on their photography (as seen above) on your Facebook wall, looping them in. Just leave me a link to your post in the comments of this post and I’ll use random.org to pick a winner on 3/15 at 5PM CST. You will need to “Like” them on Facebook to loop them in.

*We were provided with VIP service which included hair, make up, and the photo shoot in exchange for this post and giveaway.
