Closed - "Bad Mommy" Book Review & Giveaway - USA & Canada

Thursday, May 31, 2012
When I first found out about this book, I was beyond curious. What could a book entitled "Bad Mommy" be about? What could it possibly pertain to and what point might it tackle? My gut feeling was telling me this book was loaded with potential. I knew a hoard of mommies out there who needed to know of the existence of this book. Thus, I wanted to share it with my readers. Then, when Willow Yamauchi, author of "Bad Mommy", accepted my book review offer, I was over the moon! Before I embarked on the reviewing journey though, Willow warned me on the edginess of the book. I enjoy edginess. If it isn't sugarcoated, the better. Tell it how it is, that's how I roll. And once I had read her guest post for S.O.S. Mom, way before even starting to read her book, I knew what she meant. I knew I was in it for a treat!

Safe Fun In The Sun

Thursday, May 24, 2012

Sunlight is essential for good health. But babies should not be exposed to the sun without proper protection. Their skin is very thin and burns easily. They need to be protected against the sun's strong rays, which can cause dehydration and allergic reactions.

Closed - Baby Sun Hat Review & Giveaway - USA & Canada

Thursday, May 10, 2012

I know this post is entitled Baby Sun Hat Review, but my mind was set on doing a shop review for a lovely lady called Brenda Vermunt. This woman is genuinely amazing and remarkably talented. I first came into contact with Brenda last December when I was desperately searching for Christmas pyjamas. My family was hosting a Christmas party where the dress code was Holiday pj's only. I desperately searched every possible store for some. It's Christmas so you'd think that Christmas sleeping garments would be everywhere right?! Nope! Nothing. Very disappointing to say the least. So I had to turn to my favorite store in the world, the one that never lets me down... the web! And being the Etsy fan that I am, I surfed with determination their site. Which lead me to Brenda's shop called AuntBsBonnets. She mainly sells items for children. Depending on the season, it varies from sun hats, to onesies, dresses, pyjamas, blankets, sleepbags, and the list goes on. First thing that struck me was the originality of her fabrics and their cuteness. I went on to notice that she had these Christmas children PJs and asked her if she had them for adults. She didn't but, without hesitation, offered to custom-make some for me and my boyfriend. Not only was she very helpful and friendly, but her service was fast and extremely professional. One of the sweetest, most reliable person I have met in my whole internet shopping life! And you're probably wondering how the pyjamas turned out to be in this whole crazy story... one word: Awesome! Great quality fabric, gorgeous patterns, perfectly tailored and ideal fitting. They were just perfect!

Here are some tricks to restore order in the management of the housework.
