Storyland Yoga (Tomoson) - Product Review and Giveaway



I received a copy of Storyland Yoga....a DVD that allows children from ages 3-8 learn different yoga postures in a fun way. There are 2 different stories over the course of the DVD, which I thought was really cute. The "Save the Whale" story is about 18 min. long and the "Condor Trek" is about 23min. I found that both were a little too long for M but with practice she shouldn't have any problems. i have already taught her a few poses like: Tree, Cobra, Child, Plank and Downward Dog so she's already really into yoga, so we found this fun to do together.

This kids yoga DVD is really cute... the teacher was really good with the kids that were in the video. M really liked copying all the kids in the stories, which I thought was really fun to watch. The postures were great for her age, and any of the more challenging ones she was ok with a little help until she "got it".

Thanks to Playful Planet and Tomoson for letting M and I do this review, it was definitely fun for us.... she asked to do each story twice already!!!

[BIS.KOT] Maternity Line - Product Review

I received a black hoodie from [BIS.KOT], a maternity and nursing wear company in Canada (yay!). They offer anything from tanks, lounge wear, and dresses to accessories (super cute nursing scarves....btw) so I was totally pumped when they asked me to do a review of the line. They have some really cute stuff....totally figured I should try something that I would wear and well...wear a lot, so I picked the black hoodie.
First thing I noticed right away...it was SUPER soft... all their clothes are made of something called "modal". Which is stretchy...light....breathes well and can be worn before, during and after pregnancy. [BIS.KOT] is all about making Mama feel pretty, comfortable and feel sexy....even if you're nursing! The colours are really bright and the styles are great.... plus....attached to the tag was a small charm (or zipper pull).... nice touch!

Overall, I'm totally impressed! Their lounge wear looks comfy...so I may be heading back for that set in black too...and the Takara in Violet! LOL. Thanks to [BIS.KOT] for sending me out an item to try.... it is officially my new fave hoodie! Especially now that summer is here!

Baby's Best Designs (BabyLegs) - Product Review and Giveaway

I received 1 pair of regular BabyLegs ( in a Hello Kitty print) and a pair of UV BabyLegs (which are totally awesome) from Baby's Best Designs! I LOVE Hello Kitty...and really.. M does too, but I totally think it's of my own doing! LOL. These are perfect for any of her pink outfits! I use to use leg warmers all the time with her for quick diaper changes and potty training.. but now...it's all about accessorizing and finishing off an outfit! LOL. You can use them on your arms or legs... and literally... M almost always has a pair on!

The BabyCool (UV) ones I received have UPF protection of 50+.... when wet or dry! Which I think is awesome! M was hanging out in the backyard wearing them.... was great for in the sun and running through the sprinkler too! They are mesh like... so she didn't sweat in them...they looked super cute with her bathing suit (actually any of her bathing suits... these have a ton of bright colours in them!), and she didn't fuss with them at all. I like that these in particular protect her from 98% of the UV radiation while being lightweight and funky!

Baby's Best Designs carries a TON of really cute stuff....even the Bola necklace I want!!! Sigh.... if any of my friends are reading this.... throwing the thought out there for the next occasion...LOL. Another reason to LOVE Baby's Best Designs.....they totally offer free shipping in Canada for BabyLegs!!!!

For more information and ordering, please visit www.babysbestdesigns.com

What's up for grabs??? 2 pairs of BabyLegs! - winners choice!! (Canada Only)
