Cotton On Kids Giveaway

Living by the beach, we live in beach attire and swimwear year-round. Living in Southern California, we are really lucky that the temperature is pretty temperate throughout the entire year (I don't know if my kids will ever understand seasons ha!) and we are able to enjoy the sand, surf, and sea almost every single day of the year. So it shouldn't come as any surprise that I am constantly looking for new swimwear for the boys as they grow, that is not only cute and unique, but also protects their skin against the sun's harsh rays.

Well Cotton On Kids just released their new swim collection for children and it is to die for!! They have board shorts, rash guards, sandals, and more, for your little ones and each piece is just so cute and unique.

The Ultimate New Baby Gift Registry Giveaway

As a new mom (or even an experienced one), it is often hard to decipher what products you really need for your new baby. With my first child, I definitely went overboard and bought so many items that I didn't end up using. This time around, I have decided to carefully edit my list of essentials, selecting tried and true products that I love from experience and are from brands I trust. However, even once I narrowed down the list of essentials, I realized that a newborn's "essentials list" is comprised of quite a few products, and rounding up and purchasing all of these items can feel overwhelming, both emotionally and financially. So today, I want to help all of you mamas out!

I am beyond excited to announce that I am teaming up with one of my favorite resources for all things motherhood, Mom's Best Network, on The Ultimate New Baby Gift Registry Giveaway where one lucky mama or mama-to-be will win all of the items listed below. All of the products included in the giveaway are products that I have used and loved with #1 or are new products that I will be using for baby #2, and I am confident that you will love them just as much as I do.

The New 4moms Mamaroo Giveaway

As a baby, Holden needed constant movement. We spent hours doing circles around the living room, bouncing him in our arms to comfort him. It didn't matter whether we were rocking, swinging, or bouncing, as long as we were moving, Holden was a happy baby. One of our favorite baby products during Holden's infancy was the 4moms Mamaroo. Although being a first time mama, I found it hard to ever remove him from my arms, when I did, it was to pop him into the mamaroo. He loved the different types of movement that it made and we loved that it gave us a break here and there from our circles around the living room.

If this next baby is anything like Holden, the living room circles are about to be another constant in our house (although, with a second baby, we won't be able to dedicate as much time to the circles since we will also have a toddler to take care of). This time around, I imagine that the 4moms mamaroo is not only going to be essential in soothing our new little baby, but will also allow me to spend one-on-one time with Holden and give me time to get ready, make food, and all of the other parts of life that are now a necessity with a toddler.

We were lucky enough to try out the brand new 4moms mamaroo which is everything the original mamaroo was and more. The brand new mamaroo allows you to control everything from your iPhone (via their iPhone app) which means no waking baby when you want to change the power, motion, speed, and sounds and no interrupting one-on-one time with Holden when the baby is content in the mamaroo.

And it's your lucky day because I'm partnering with the 4moms team to giveaway one new mamaroo to one lucky winner!  Enter below and good luck!!!
