Paparazzi with Steph-July Spotlight Sponsor Review

Another month, another great Spotlight Sponsor review and giveaway. I was so excited to do this review and work with this sponsor, because I had only heard and read about the company and product. I couldn't wait to get in touch with our sponsor and get working with her.

As I have said before, I stick to pretty neutral makeup and jewelry. I just don't feel like I can pull off a whole lot of bling. That said, I wish I could, and working with great companies, like Paparazzi, have opened my eyes to what works for me.

Paparazzi is a newish Party Plan company specializing in fun, trendy, affordable jewelry and accessories. When I say affordable, I mean affordable. Paparazzi is not treating affordable as $75 for a ring, they are talking $5 for every single piece they offer. Sounds crazy, right!?! But it is totally true, they offer Necklace Sets, Earrings, Bracelets, Rings, Hair Clips, and Headbands, all for $5. Their products are only available in certain quantities and constantly changing and offer the newest and best fashion trends. To read more about Paparazzi click here. Read more about the founders of Paparazzi by clicking here.

Working with Paparazzi with Steph was a great experience. She quickly got in touch with me to find out what colors I preferred and if their was anything I just did not like. I thought that was great, because she was truly taking in to consideration my likes and dislikes so that I could have a Paparazzi piece I would love. My package arrived in just about a week's time, Steph had sent me shipping information so I knew to keep my eye out for the mail lady.

My Paparazzi piece has arrived...
    A necklace and earring set wrapped in bubble wrap and Steph's business card
     Steph did a great job picking a very simple yet colorful necklace and earring set. She really took my personal taste into consideration and chose well.

    All of the colors made it easy to pick different outfits to show it off. I chose a cream colored top so that the colors would really pop. The earrings were pink and dark silver and really comfortable to wear. The necklace was light and really eye catching. I wore it out to a Girls Night Out dinner and all my girlfriends thought it was really great.

    Paparazzi pieces are:
    • $5 each
    • Lead and nickel free
    • One of a kind, original design, style, and feel
    • Always changing
    • Designed in the US, made in China(produced in facilities with elite standards and regulations)
    • Available only through consultants-contact Steph
Other current Paparazzi pieces I love
Pink Flower Hairclip w/ Pearl & Rhinestones
Long Black Ribbon Necklace

Starlet Shimmer Kids Bracelet - Round Beads

Ivory Lace & Fabric Hairclip w/ Pearl and Rhinestone Center
As with all Paparazzi pieces, quantities change quickly, so if it is something you have to have contact Steph quickly or you might just miss it.

Want It? Buy It!
Steph would love to help you start or add to your Paparazzi accessory collection,visit her here or here. You can also find Steph on Twitter, so check her out. When everything is $5, you can stock up and even get free shipping for orders over $25. You can not beat these Paparazzi deals! Want to host your own Paparazzi party?

IMA Baby Brand (Review & Giveaway)

With Cameron growing like a weed I'm always buying new clothes for him.  Since he is a boy, it is so hard for me to find super cute and trendy stuff for him (girls have all the way cute clothes).  So, when I was asked if I wanted to pick the shirt of my choosing from a brand new shirt company for babies, I had to say YES!

IMA Baby Brand is a brand new company, they have only been in business for a little over a month and are already rockin' it out!  IMA Baby Brand is a graphic apparel company featuring unique designs to help your little ones express their ONE-OF-A-KIND personalities! IMA Baby Brand only uses eco-friendly ink on 100% cotton apparel, and print every single garment to order, so you can enjoy your favorite design on your favorite apparel! 

It all began in 2005 when two moms, friends and fellow graphic designers, Tracy and Rachel, were shopping with their babies. A woman came up to them and commented on Tracy's daughter who was dressed head-to-toe in pink saying, "What an adorable little BOY! What's HIS name?". After this experience, the two moms joked around about how there should be shirts that say I'M A GIRL or I'M A BOY to avoid awkward encounters like the one they just had. It was then the idea for IMA Baby Brand was born. Tracy and Rachel, combining their graphic design talents and passion, have personally designed each image in the IMA Baby Brand Collection. They express on a daily basis how much joy they get from creating these designs and watching their children's faces light up when they show them each new one.

"To be able to create a product that brings a smile to the faces of adults and children alike is the ultimate dream. We feel so personally invested in each design and hope that our customers get as much enjoyment out of wearing our apparel as we get out of creating it for them."  

They have so many cute designs, and they can be put on almost ANYTHING your little one will wear. 
Check some of this cuteness out...

Infant Lap Bodysuit

  Infant Short Sleeve Tee

  Infant Long Sleeve Tee 

  Infant Organic Lap Bodysuit 

  Infant Long Sleeve Sleeper

  Organic Bib 

  Toddler Short Sleeve Tee

  Toddler Ringer Style Tee

  Toddler Long Sleeve Tee 

  Toddler Ruffle Dress 

When speaking with Rachel, she did inform me that the sizes do run small.  I wanted to get just the right shirt for my little stud muffin Cameron, but they didn't have a stud muffin one (maybe they will create one just for us!)  So we went with the next best thing- “Chick Magnet." 

The design I chose for Cameron’s Shirt

I wanted to get it in long sleeves so he could wear it this fall/winter.  Since the sizes do run small we went with 18 months (he is currently in 6-9 9-12 month tops) however it fits great now!  When I opened the package and saw how dang adorable the shirt was, there was only one thing to do immediately toss it right in the wash then promptly in the dryer so I could get it on him! It doesn't look like it shrunk much if any at all which is great, I really do hate when you buy something and it fits you wash it and it doesn't fit anymore.

Cameron’s IMA Baby Brand Shirt

This shirt is so cute and i cant wait to order more stuff from this company!  They have so many super cute items & they are very reasonably priced.

Want it? Buy It!

Funky Monkey Snacks (Review & Giveaway)

We are a family that loves to snack. Well, I should really say that I love to snack. I'm a big believer in smaller portions at meal times, with little healthy snacks in between. I'm usually hungry for a little snack around 10 am, and then again around 3 pm. I try super hard not to keep junk in the house. I want my family to eat healthy foods, even when snacking.


I've been having a hard time getting Balian to eat much of anything, but he's usually pretty into fruit. He loves apples, bananas, and grapes, so when I came across Funky Monkey Snacks, and saw that they made natural, dried fruit snacks, I knew that I needed to check them out. Funky Monkey Snacks are a line of freeze-dried fruit that are 100% natural, 100% real fruit, and 100% delicious – with 3 servings of fruit in each 1oz bag!  The “fruit that crunches” provides the ultimate snack, fusing the great taste, smell, and nutritional goodness of fresh fruit with the crunch and convenience of conventional snacks. 

Funky Monkey Snack flavors...

We were sent a sampler of seven yummy flavors of Funky Monkey snack packs! The day they arrived, Balian was napping, when the UPS man dropped off the package of snacks. I knew Balian would be hungry when he woke from his nap, so I grabbed a package of Funky Monkey snacks, and had it ready for him, with a cup of milk. Our sampler pack included the following flavors: Applemon, Bananamon, Carnaval Mix, JiveALime, MangOJ, Pink Pineapple and Purple Funk.

Healthy munching- B tries the Bananamon and loves it!

We first tried the Bananamon flavor. Balian loves bananas, so I figured he would go for the dried bananas, sprinkled with cinnamon. He was intrigued by the packaging, and when he saw the dried banana chips, he couldn't wait to try them. He happily munched on the Bananamon for the rest of the afternoon, which made me a happy momma. 

I asked a friend to try the JiveALime. His opinion was that while the flavor was pretty yummy, he was a little thrown off by the crunchy texture. It was certainly much different than any dried fruit he'd ever tasted before. My dad tried the package of Pink Pineapple, and loved it! He said that other than the fact that he accidentally got a piece of the dried fruit jammed into his gum, he really liked the funky, fruity flavor, and liked the crunch!

Funky YUM! Just look at these huge pieces of real dried fruit!

We've also enjoyed the Applemon. It's delicious dried apple slices, sprinkled with cinnamon. Balian liked it too, all except the peel. My favorite flavor that I have tried thus far, is the Carnival Mix! It contains yummy pieces of dried apples, papayas, pineapples, and bananas. I gave the banana pieces to Balian (because I am not a banana fan), but I quickly fell in love with the pineapple pieces!

I want to munch on the other flavors, too, but I am being sort of selfish and saving them for a rainy day, or emergency snack situation. I've got two bags left, and they're both in the diaper bag. Since Balian is so fond of these delicious, natural dried fruit snacks, I'm just keeping them on hand, in case we need them while we're on the go!

About Funky Monkey:

The Funky Monkey encourages you to discover the fun of fruit that crunches- a delicious, healthy snack with the taste and goodness of freshly picked, real fruit! Natural and nutritious, The Funky Monkey believes that snacks should be the way nature intended, with no added sugar, preservatives, coloring or flavoring. Funky Monkey snacks are freeze-dried, a unique and modern process that maintains all of the flavor and nutrients found in fresh fruit, unlike other types of fruit-based snacks. 

*All Natural
*Raw Food
*Gluten Free

When I got the Kitty A Go Go I knew this was perfect for her. I surprised her one night by bring this over to her. My mom's cat Taz was all about the box.

Taz played in the shipping and the Kitty A Go Go box all night lol. After we got the Kitty A Go Go out and set up all of my mom's cats were checking it out. They weren't afraid of it at all. My mom loved the wood grain look of the Kitty A Go Go and it matches her basement decor. Just by glancing at the Kitty A Go Go you wouldn't think of it as a litter box.

Zoobies (Review & Giveaway

This Review/Giveaway is done by Kathy's Freebies & Savings 
 MBP is helping to promote this giveaway, because we feel our readers would enjoy it.

My daughters are huge animal fans. They both have there own stuffed animals that they sleep with at night, as well as there own blankets. You try to take either away from my youngest daughter (Tesla) and she gets very upset. I don't think my kids will ever be able to part from there stuffed animals and blankets. I'm sure you have all heard of the pillow pets before right? Well, the zoobies are similar to the pillow pets, but in my opinion they are much better. Zoobies blanket pets are pets, blankets, and pillows, all in one. They have a huge selection of pets to choose from. 


 I chose Pugs the Pooch to review. Both of my daughters really love dogs, so I thought this would be the perfect choice for them. The pet is very soft and the head is very squishy. It's actually made out of microbeads, which would be why it's so squishy. The pooch has a zipper pouch that keeps the blanket inside. I was extremely surprised at the size of the blanket. I thought it was going to be small. It was actually a decent size. Sizing of the blankets are about 44" by 34", perfect for nap time. My oldest daughter (Mercades) sleeps with the blanket pet at night. I would have to say that she really loves the pooch. This will make a perfect travel buddy for my kids, when we take long trips too. 


Zoobies have more then just the blanket pets. 
They also have Book Buddies, Duffel Dogs, Storytime Pals, Blankie Babies, and Slumber Pets. 

Want It? Buy It!

You can purchase one of the Zoobies HERE
Right now they are offering 20% off with the coupon code: PARENTHOOD

Want It? Win It!

 But wait, there's more. Zoobies is offering one of my readers a blanket pet of their own.
