Shoe Deals

Hubby has just recently informed me that it was Cyber Monday tomorrow. I was like what? iv never heard of that before, apparently its like black Friday for the internet who knew. So i have been definitely trying to step up my shoe the problem is i am so cheap ! I got an email from , so i decided to take a look , they guarantee all orders in time for Christmas plus Free Shipping . So i went on the site and they have amazing pumps, uggs and even mens and kids shoes i was shocked to see a lot of good brands because iv never really went on there. Well the second page got my eye immediately look at these babies>
its like they thought of me when they made them and that price.
On sale $80.00- Org.$120.00
So up next was to browse around the site and see if i could buy hubby some sneakers for Christmas ,now he's a little hard to shop for because of his taste. His shoes always have to be a certain brand and Hi Top.These sneakers were on sale and most of all they will be shipped free ! Yay! And just in case he doesn't like them has 1YEAR return policy and they ship the returns for FREE. I am still in shock that i hadn't discovered there huge shoe section  earlier it would have saved me a lot of money on Gia's boots that were $65.00. Had i known i could have gotten a good pair for 30.00 at i would have never ordered her boots from Journeys . To me its by far the easiest web site to shop for the Holidays they give lots of great perks and have affordable name brand everything. I would strongly advise buying shoes from they offer wides, narrows, diabetic approved and are orthotic friendly as well;Great if you know someone who works on their feet for a good amount of time.

Another day

So glad that Christmas is almost here, the weather has been like 32 degrees im over winter. Any whoo hubby and i went to Walmart for Black Friday to say the least it was packed ! All we picked up was a couple of Barbie dolls that were on sale for $5.00 can you believe it? They had accessories included and all , Gia went nuts. Glad to have checked a few things off the list including my mothers birthday that was on Thanksgiving . Im just happy all this holiday hustle and bustle is almost over i mean i love to shop and all but its getting a bit too stressful. Now income tax time that's the holiday ill gladly prolong lol (is that even considered a holiday ?) i will finally be going on vacation. Be sure to check up on Monday ill be posting a Jewelry Giveaway along with a special video for you guys :).

Product Review(Free Sample)

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Boudreaux's Butt Paste. All opinions are 100% mine.

I was approached by Boudreaux's Butt Paste to do a Sponsored Post. However i already had a jar in my bathroom so i decided to do a review. Boudreaux's Butt Paste  was introduced to me by my Pediatrician, one day Gia had a diaper rash this was about 3 months ago so i called  the doctor and she recommended to pick up Boudreaux's Butt Paste and if that didn't work to bring her in. Well within 3 days her private area and butt has been rash free. The Boudreaux's Butt Paste  went on easy and didn't get all sticky on her underwear. It has been featured on the Oprah Show, Tonight Show,Today Show, just to name a few and comes in variety of sizes. A lot of the other ointments come in a little tube that cost like $7.00 and up while Boudreaux's Butt Paste comes in 1oz, 2oz, 3oz, and 4oz, 16oz jars that are family affordable. I have the huge 16 oz jar and it was well worth it . Especially when Gia was getting potty trained and learning how to wipe and what not , this was something i always kept in the drawer (just out of paranoia lol ). Boudreaux's Butt Paste is being so kind to offer a FREE SAMPLE when you visit their site. All you have to do is click the any 1 of their links to be taken to the site and BAM! There you go a pleasantly smelling, quick and easy solution to your little ones problems. You can never beat a FREEBIE (especially one promoted by Oprah ) I recommended it too any new moms or any moms who like me are potty training and just need something on hand.

Overall Rating 9 out of 10.

Welcome Tanya from Two Crafty Chicks Handmade !
A little about us...
We are two women who started as acquaintances and became great friends crafting together. We decided to blend our love for everything crafty and our endless creativity into a line of handmade goods targeted to women who are fun and flirty and girly - like us! We started with cards, and designing our own line of paper and embellishments. Then e got sick of the soaps in stores, which didn't seem to be made for women like us. Everything was either too floral or too herbal or too plain. We like bright and fun and fruity! So we started making our own. This has now turned into a huge product line, which is growing all the time (check out our website soon for our new bath bombs being added soon!).
                                   We also get the chance to show support for local companies and for eco-friendly products. All our card bases, envelopes, journal pages and cover bases, agenda pages and cover bases and even our soon to be released 100 lb scrapbook paper is 100% recycled! Our soap cello wrap, card sleeves and shopping bags are all bio-degradable. We also don't waste. We collect bits and pieces of soap, and all our 'experiments' that don't make the cut and send it to "Clean the World" to be melted down into soap for people who cannot afford it.
                           What's next for us? Our own line of scrapbook paper is almost ready, which we hope will one day become a fabric line too. We are working on our own line of acrylic stamps, more card designs, perfumes and skin treatments. We are also adding natural yoga mat cleaners by the end of this year. We hope that our business continues to grow and we dream of having our very own brick and mortar shop where we can make and sell our goods as well as offer workshops and classes for others wanting to learn to make our crafts.
Thank You

**AFFILIATE OPPORTUNITY'S :We have an amazing two tier affiliate program! Not only to we offer you a good cut of the sales you generate, but you'll also get a cut of everything the people YOU REFER make!

Feautured Guest

Today i want to introduce guest blogger Stephanie from Ecstatically Pregnant. It took me and Stephanie a while to get to this point but we got here (lol) so without further or due meet Stephanie.


So more about me...

If you haven't guessed by my blog name...I am a new mom/ was just recently pregnant....

I am 25 years old, 3 years married to Dave...almost 7 years together...a brand new mom...who breastfeeds, pumps, wears my baby, and is really contemplating cloth diapers.

I have my Bachelors Degree in English, Education & History. I am on a break from law-school where I would be a 2L (2nd year)...contemplating if I'm ever going to go back...or if I will go onto teaching and getting my Masters Degree.

I am a miscarriage survivor who has lost two separate pregnancies...and since the first loss I developed anxiety and depression which I have survived {I'm doing really well}!

I am never sure of myself, I have my doubts everyday whether or not I am doing a good job as a wife and as a mother but I know somehow I'll do a great job!

I loveeeeeeeeeeeee being a mom. Our baby girl is my EVERYTHING! I could just sit and watch her for hours (and I do).  I love yoga pants (but have no patience for yoga...bring on the zumba), love trashy television, loveeeeeee nice purses/bags, love my uggs, love to ski, loveeeee to fish, love to read {at least one book per I love my kindle}, love swimming/teaching swim, love hiking & camping.

I hate stinky dogs (we wash ours once a week after they go to daycare on Saturdays to play), hate rude people, hate when someone drives under the speed limit, hate when you can't find your receipt and need to return something, and hateeeeee when I have to wear a bag over my arm to shower!!!

So I hope you've enjoyed getting to know me!  Thank you so much Naomi!  You are a doll!  Oh and anyone sticking around let me know because I like to follow back!!!

Holiday Gift Review

Cafe Au Lait Toffee
Here is the first of many for the Holiday Gift Reviews. Today's gift is from the Coffee Toffee Company they specialize in Handmade pieces of heaven(aka) Toffee of all flavors. My packaged arrived in a beautiful white Asian Style gift box , you could smell the pumpkin,and fresh roasted coffee through the box. I opened the box and each flavor was individually packaged in a resealable bag (The Company's beautiful logo on each bag.).My hubby has very sensitive teeth but this was the perfect treat for him all day long. He grabbed a nice cup of tea and nibbled and savored the Pumpkin Spice Toffee. Me on the other hand i grabbed my Starbucks and immediately devoured the Cafe Au Lait Toffee. The Pumpkin Spice was made with real pumpkin pie , nutmeg , and cinnamon when you tasted it it was like it was freshly made, the flavors were the right amount of power and subtlety.The Cafe Au Lait tasted of slow  ground coffee and warm sweet cream(the toffee didn't even  last a week ). This is the perfect holiday gift for the Coffee Crazy person, your Tea Buffs, this is a $20.00 bill ALERT!! Meaning this is a perfect practical gift under $20.00. If you don't know what the person likes to eat they have a variety toffee package available also. No more fuss about having to order and wrap ect... its perfectly packaged in a Asian style gift box for you just buy and send your done. It's holiday shopping made easy !Welcome Jessica Co-Founder / Creator of Coffee Toffee Company!

Hi Everyone,
Pumpkin Spice Toffee
Here is a little more information about my mom Renna (pronounced Renee) & I (Jessica) & the tiny little company called The Coffee Toffee Company that we started just about 2 months ago and how far we have come in such a short time.
Our company was born from our passion for food, our love of cooking together and our determination to shape our own destinies.
My mother and I found ourselves in situations many women can relate to and some have found themselves in. My mom was a stay at home mom who at 60 found herself single and without a retirement account. I was a semi accomplished music producer, singer, songwriter with music industry credentials but no health care or a glimmer of job security and the catering jobs I worked in between music gigs had all but dried up since the recession.
One day in July 2010, I said to my mother “enough is enough!” and I told her I wanted her and I to take control of our lives. We decided to take a chance and using funds from my last unemployment check we bet on ourselves.
In August  2010 we incorporated The Coffee Toffee Company Inc and on Sept 3, 2010 we launched our website (which I built).
Since then we have been featured in The New York Times & yesterday we had our interview with Sandra Bookman on ch.7 that can be seen here  .

** We are offering a free sample of our coffee toffee now till Saturday Nov 20th**
**We are offering free shipping on all Holiday orders $100 & up**
**The  Coffee Toffee Company can also be found in our Sponsors Bar!>>

Moving time ugh!

This month by far has been hectic to say the least . Hubby and i decided to move on the first of December instead of February -March (which we agreed upon ), any hoo we got an amazing offer so its packing time. It kind of sucks to know that after Thanksgiving we will be looking at brown boxes majority of the time. Our new condo is somewhat better and has sooooo many good perks for Gia(aka the fitness center for me) so I'm excited . A couple of people have asked me is that my dog in my family photo,and yes it was. Her name was Jessica she was a toy poodle and she was stolen on her 2nd birthday we had only had her for 6 months :(. Part of my  New Year Resolution is to find another family member to complete us (go shopping for lol). That being said stay tuned  I'm going to have a lot of interesting Holiday opportunity's and reviews to share(MAYBE EVEN A GIVEAWAY OF YOUR CHOICE . Let me know what you all want aside from toys for the holidays ill see what i can do regarding the Giveaway.

Need help?

This post brought to you by SPOT. All opinions are 100% mine.

This is a review for SPOT Satellite GPS messenger, when i was contacted i was a little hesitant about doing a review then i learned about the product and became ecstatic. I was suddenly thinking of people in my life that this would be perfect for so that being said let me tell you what this is. SPOT is a Satellite GPS that has multiple emergency capabilities that are out of cell phones grid. That means when you get no service on your iphone,blackberry or fancy touch screen phone SPOT will be able to call for help either to your family,friends, or any emergency service. SPOT also has live tracking, so say your daughter or son is on a field trip in another state your able to see exactly where they are at all times. Especially if you have teenagers this would be the ultimate protection for you to keep an eye on them. Now if your always on Facebook and Twitter and take a trip and want to(brag) share with everyone SPOT lets you set up live map widgets which sends your location to your favorite sites. When it comes to kids and the elderly you can never be to safe with them. SPOT allows your loved ones to just push a button and it sends a Check In/Im Okay message to everyone letting them know the location and that they are safe. This would be perfect for my younger sisters they will be going to high school next year and i am in a different state, now i can make sure they are doing the right thing at all times. Also since SPOT is so easy to use i might be getting one for my Grammy so that if anything happens and she needs help she can call the ambulance,my mother, and other family members at once with a push of a button. Spot is doing a very special holiday deal when you buy SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger you get an adventure kit that is valued at $50.00(perfect for people who love to hike,camp, ect. ).

Just a Random Video

Here's a 2-3 minute video of my little one singing on top of my bar. Its hilarious and for some reason she loves Nicki Minaj's Right Through Me. So here she is being the family's entertainer  (As always lol ).
            Be Advised: No curse words were said during the making of this movie . 
Warning: A cheap camera was used which has now been discarded due to crappy performance.
