Post image for Dainty Cheeks Boutique- Gracie the Fox Review and Sweet Giveaway!!

We all know I get a little over- the- top excited when I visit my fav handmade online shops.  But, there are certain occasions when I literally can get overwhelmed with all the sweetness and amazing creativity that I come across in certain handmade shops.  I think it has a lot to do with the fact that I am so overly jealous of these amazing people that have so much skill, creativity and artistry that I only wish I had.  It doesn’t take too much to get me excited, but overwhelmed, yeah that’s another story.  There are certain shops and items that literally make me nervous to review- I know how much I love them and that everyone else will as well, but to explain the sheer magnitude of how awesome a shop is, I literally get nervous.  I want everyone to see how amazing Dainty Cheeks Boutique is but will the words to describe such a shop even do it justice?? All I can do is try I suppose.  Let’s face it- there are so many stores, shops, companies out there, you can go your entire adult life without hearing of most of them, especially in the handmade community.  It would be such a shame for everyone to miss out something this amazing! I’m not even certain how I stumbled upon Etsy, but I almost feel my life somehow has been altered in finding it.  My taste have changed, my views on quality and design completely rearranged.  When I shop in retail stores I find myself saying, Etsy is so much better!  But sometimes even on Etsy I find certain shops that raise the bar so high, no shop can even compare!  Dainty Cheeks Boutique is that shop whose quality and design is so far above most, to try to imitate them is useless!  Dainty Cheeks Boutique is the true definition of handmade.  Taking ordinary items and and creating something new and beautiful.   Carefully considering the design and creating fun, imaginative items made in limited quantities for a one of a kind feel.  Dainty Cheeks boutique uses vintage and upcycled fabrics- breathing new life to pieces of the past.  We -and as I say we, I mean me of course, were so very honored to be able to review one of these pieces for you all today!  Meet Gracie everyone!!  [click to continue…]

Well, it is that time of year again, when parents are flooding the internet in search for the coolest, cutest, and most fab toys around.  There are always the usual suspects that parents all around have as their go-to-sure-to- please toys that all will love.  Lalaloopsy has most definitely made it to the top of those must have lists!  My girls have LOVED Lalaloopsy Dolls since they first showed their adorable super sized faces!  My girlies have recently entered into the “Let me do your hair mommy” stage, but since I decided to chop mine off, they have no hair to experiment on- so in order to save all of our family and friends from the hair experiments of little girls,  the Loopy Hair Lalaloopsy Dolls were the obvious choice for my future beauticians.  We received the adorable Pix E. Flutters Loopy Hair Lalaloopsy doll for our review and my girls could not have been more thrilled!!  [click to continue…]


Post image for The Most Comfy Bra Ever!! The Coobie Bra!! Review

Since my surgery last year, I have found out several things. One of which is that comfort is now my #1 feature in any garment, especially so when it comes to bras. My lack of ability to workout as hard or as much as I used to, has resulted in some weight gain, and for some reason that means a few sizes larger in the chest. Any other time I would welcome the increase, but with my former bras that meant a severe strain on my neck, back, and shoulders- none of which is good when you have just had surgery on your brain and back. I was suffering day after day, looking and trying out new bras. Then one day I was searching once again and came upon my savior- the Coobie Bra (insert angelic music here)!! Of course I was a bit skeptical, I had tried bras in the past that promised comfort and support, but I continued to suffer. So when the Coobie Bras arrived, I was hopeful, but still skeptical.
