Chic Bambino Tutu & Bonnet Giveaway!


I have a wonderful giveaway for all of you with a little princess {or diva} in your life! I had the opportunity to review a Tutu & Puff Beanie Bonnet from Chic Bambino, a local {and very chic} Baby Boutique only miles from my house! Christine, the owner and creator, has such a talent & creativity - especially when knowing she has a house full of boys!! It's safe to say that any mommy that I meet in my community that has a little girl, will be receiving one of Christine's cards and many praises for her wonderful shop, customer care, and adorably cute items!

Here is a little bio:

Chic bambino is focused on making your little one the most stylish baby in town! From tutus to tiaras...beanie caps to trendy bibs, your little prince or princess will be pampered from head to toe. All of our products are invented and/or made by moms! Chic bambino provides chic style at an affordable price. With a variety of unique and stylish products to choose from, I'm sure you'll find something to pamper your little bambino!

Giveaway is a small (0-12 months) handmade tutu and puff beanie bonnet. This is an adorable set!! Tutu is handmade by Christine, with three colors of soft, layered tulle. Puff beanie bonnet is made to match, one size fits most. This is a chic bambino original design so you won't see it anywhere else! Tutu has an elastic waist so it can stretch beyond 12 months for lots of wear for your little princess.
This is the set that you will be winning! Isn't it just adorable! Really makes me wish I had a little girl - I asked Mister Monster if he would put this on and model it for the blog...know what he told me "Are you crazy woman! I ain't puttin that thing on! I'm not no Giiiiiiiiirl!" It was priceless!
At Chic Bambino will you find more than just "Too Too Cute" Tutu's - Christine has everything from hair clips, to tiaras, diaper cakes, dolls, and so much more!
Here's how to Enter:
Mandatory: Head on over to Chic Bambino and look around - let me know what you liked the most! {It's going to be hard, Christine has created so many wonderful items!!}

100th Post - Flip Flops!

Got an email from Old Navy today & had to share what it said....

Saturday May 22nd, Old Navy stores (in store only) will have Classic Flip Flops for $1

Do you know how awesome that is?! I have an addiction ladies & gents...and it's flipflops! I could wear flipflops in the rain, in the mud, in the snow, in the ice, in HELL! I cleaned out my closests yesterday and I had, no joke, 12 pairs of flip flops that had not been worn yet!! (They were purchased last summer).

But that's not the point of the story here, point is, get your butts to Old Navy first thing in the morning & stock up on Summer Flops! I know I'll be there...waiting...in the parking lot...with war paint on! Just like Black Friday in my neighborhood tomorrow gals, but instead of toasters for $5 its $1 pairs of flops!

Little old ladies best not be in my way - I will chuck norris them to get to those adorable zebra striped fops in a sz 8!

PS. This is my 100th post! Whoo!!

Celebrate good times c'mon....celebrate!


Giveaway Alert - $25 from Cover Your Hair

$25 in Hair Accessories

Today's Giveaway is brought to you by Coveryourhair.com

I received the black studded head wrap. I choose this hair accessory to test & review because let's face it ladies, somedays we just do not want to do our hair! I am a sucker for stretchy headbands, but they have to be CUTE & stylish. I thought the studded headband was a great choice for me - and I must say - it is! I wear this headband almost everyday
(which shows my complete & utter laziness to wash my hair on a daily basis)
 but thats ok, because its just so stylish and easy to rock!

Coveryourhair.com has many, many different items to pick from. They have hats, hair clips, bandana's, headbands, scarfs! If you wear it, they have it! The prices are great, too! Comparable to what you would see at a large chain (Walmart, Target). Make sure to check out their website to see all the adorable accessories you can get to dress up your hair!

Onto the fun stuff...the giveaway!

One very lucky winner will win $25 in hair accessories, they will be random, but Coveryourhair.com does not make a bad product!

Here's how to win:

Visit Coveryourhair.com & tell me which hair accessory you would purchase

Pre-K Graduation

Last night was a huge milestone in Mister Monster *And mines* life! He graduated Preschool! The ceremony was absolutly adorable, they even marched in to the room with the Graduation Procession! I will admit right here, right now, I bawled like a baby! It's all starting to sink in that my little man is longer a baby!

It was only yesterday....

Seems like last night he graduated Pre-K, this weekend he starts Kindergarten and Next weekend he goes off to college! Time sure does fly. I'm an emotional wreck just thinking about here!

But without further adieu...here's some pictures from last night!

And I'm Back....For good this time!

Hey there gals! (and guys!!) I'm sorry that I have been on Haitus so long, but this girl is BACK...in BLACK! Well...mostly pink...I like pink! :) Black makes you look so gothicy...but anyways...

Alot has happened in the last few months....I almost moved to Kentucky,

almost bought a new house,
(It was beautiful BTW)

almost transferred jobs,

and almost got engaged.

Now what actually happened.....

We resigned our Lease here in St.Louis
I'm staying at my present job, BUT

added 2 others to the pot - Scentsy & Macaroni Kid

I have not gotten my shiny donut

however, Chris better hurry up, or I'm going to shank him!!

I'm not lying...I'll shank his ass! No really...crazy cracker bia here!

But we are leaving for a week in the Happiest Place on Earth in 18 days!

That is something to look forward to...a 13 hours car ride with a 5 1/2 year old, Chris, and both of Chris' parents. Mind you, I love his parents, but being stuck in the back with Jay & his mom for 13 hours just doesn't sound like a good time.

But once we make it to Florida - good times will be had!

Anyone want me to pick up a set of Mickey Ears for them? Hey - that gives me a great giveaway idea!!

But I must say I am most excited about being a Publisher Mom for West St. Louis Macaroni Kid! If you would be so kind as to subscribe to my newsletter - that would be AWESOME!
And My Facebook Page...
And why not my Twitter Account while you're at it?

If you don't do it now...you know I'm going to make you in the form a giveaway....

Consider yourself WARNED!

That is all for now...but stay tuned for Post-It Note Tuesday....Oh how I have missed cheap post-it therapy!!
