Vitafusion Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*



Everybody knows I'm expecting #2 by now. Along with being pregnant is good nutrition. The first step in that is a good Prenatal Vitamin. I was sent the Vitafusion Prenatal Gummy to try out. You all should also know that I can't swallow pills very well either, and it's hard to find a gummy or chewable that has everything in it that you need.
My Dr. had also just told me that I need a DHA supplement as well since I can't take pills and I was doubling up on Avery's chewables (which don't contain DHA) so I was very thankful to receive these which have the full 800mcgs of Folic Acid in them as well as some DHA too. I was thankful that it had everything I needed in a prenatal in just 2 gummies. I was taking 4-6 of Avery's vitamins!! EEK. 
I take these every morning when I first wake up, they taste good (like candy), have a great consistency, and go down smooth. 

I have no issues taking them. They are 3 flavors, berry, lemon and cherry. I'm not a cherry fan, but when I take it with a lemon or berry I don't even taste it. 

Vitafusion also has a TON of others to choose from. They have Fiber gummies, heart vitamins, multi vitamins and they're ALL GUMMY for adults!! Which I LOVE. I can not take a pill worth nothing. 

May is also Pregnancy Awareness month. Founder Anna Getty founded Pregnancy Awareness month in 2008 in order to help expectant mothers and their bodies. So if you're thinking about becoming pregnant or are pregnant the Vitafusion Prenatal Gummies are PERFECT for you. Nutrition starts before conception too. 

Price: The Prenatals are $10.79 on sale (regularly $11.99) at Target right now for a 45 day supply. Which if you think about it, you need about 6 bottles to get through your pregnancy. That's pretty cheap I think!!! The regular vitamins are $10.99 on sale too for a 75 day supply.

Overall: ***** Love them. They taste great, are affordable and I like them all around. YUMMY

Vitafusion has offered one Mommy Of 1 and Counting reader the chance to win a bottle of the Vitafusion Prenatal Gummies

Pink Dandy Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*



Sponsored by Tomoson.com First of all I have followed the Pink Dandy blog for a LONG time. It was just recently I realized that she owned her own company. Pink Dandy has lots of cool stuff for the body. We all like to pamper ourselves and these are the way to do that.

I received a full size Whipped Satin Luxury Hand and Body Cream in none other than the Birthday Cake scent and She also included 2 samples of the Hand and Body Cream. One is marked Pina Colada and the other isn't marked. I can't tell what it is either.




I love this cream!! I put it on my hands twice daily. In the morning and at night and you hardly use any at one time. It goes a long way. I like to rub it into my cuticles too. 

When I get out of the shower I rub it in everywhere. It isn't greasy, it absorbs nicely and it feels so soft on the skin. It doesn't wear off very easy either and it's one of the cream's that still smells like it should once it's on the skin. I know sometimes they smell plasticy, but not this one. It smells like true birthday cake!

It also doesn't flare up my eczema like some scented lotions and creams do. It actually seems to soothe it. It has a lot of oils in it so it's soothing. 
Grapeseed oil which preserves the natural moisture of the skin.

Coconut oil, which I use on EVERYTHING (it's great for diaper rash and is cloth diaper safe!!) is great for dry, itchy, sensitive skin and it won't clog pores. 

Cocoa Butter. I think we all know about this one. But it's also known for healing sun burn which I didn't know... But in this cream it's great for creating a barrier which helps maintain moisture.

I like the samples sizes she included because they fit nicely in my purse and I can use them anywhere I need too.

Pink Dandy has lots of other things to choose from as well. She has lotions, body scrubs, bath bombs and more. All with your favorite choice of scent!!

Here is the list of her Scents!

Price: The whipped body cream is 4oz and is $7.50! THIS IS AWESOME and super competitive to even the most wanted brands. It's a great price.

Overall: ***** love this cream!

Almost 9 weeks!



I feel so huge! I really hope this is all bloat and that I'll still be about the same size come 14-15 weeks too! I know starting next week this will all disappear and then at about 12-13 weeks baby will start growing. Since baby's the size of a Green Olive (yum), I know it's all bloat!
I'm starting to round out though and I'm not so pointy anymore!




Voda Swim Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*





Sponsored by Tomoson.com We're approaching that season! When you go swimming whether it be in your backyard pool or at the beach, it's nice to look as good as possible right?

I received the Teal Envy Push Up Hoop Halter & Hoop Scoop bathing suit from Voda Swim. I LOVE my new bathing suit. I 'ordered' it right before finding out I was pregnant, but I'm glad I chose a Push Up Bikini because I know it will fit me even while I'm pregnant.


No, you do not get to see me in it. SORRY! I know how disappointed you all are :)

I got a Large top as I'm a full 34C and that's the size that was recommended and a Medium on bottom. I normally wear a 4 (according to them a Small) but I have 37" hips, so I got the medium. The bottoms fit me perfectly. The top is hard for me to get adjusted. 
I tie it around my neck and tie it around my back, TIGHT and then I have to really adjust to keep the girls in, it really pushes them together and they almost pop out. BUT it fits okay and I'm pretty happy with it overall.
I'm thinking maybe I should have gotten an XL up top as I'm a very full C almost a D and I think it would have had better coverage. 

With that in mind. I LOVE this swimsuit. It pushes the girls together nicely and gives me great cleavage. I love the feeling of it, they are true to size (the top size was a mistake on my part) and all around I just love it.

Also on the fit guide I LOVE that it shows how the bottoms all fit and how much they cover. Which is what led me to choose the Hoop Scoop, I like the adjustable scoop fit too. I wanted something that would cover as much as possible! So I'm happy with my choice. I also love the color of the suit I tried. 

I haven't had a chance to wear it yet as I can't use the hot tub now and no pools are open yet (except the gym, which I plan on using soon). My friend's pool opens up next week, so hopefully I can use the suit soon!

There are lots of suits to choose from in the Envy Push Up style. 
Here are some other favorites.
Want to know something awesome?? They are made right here in the USA!!!

Price: The set I received is $127. I think this is a little pricey, but it is a good quality suit.

Overall: *****

Prefense Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*



I use hand sanitizer like crazy. Avery too. I learned through a study one day that sanitizer is more effective then washing your hands. So anytime we use the bathroom or do anything we use sanitizer. It's great while you're sick too. 

When I had a chance to try out the Prefense Sanitizer I was so happy. We go through it almost as much as water so it's nice to have more. We got the 1.5 oz Foaming sanitizer to try out. 
I love that it's foaming. It's not as messy at a liquid is.

I also love that it's alcohol free, so when Avery sucks her fingers at night I know she's not getting alcohol. It protects you for 24 hours OR 10 hand washings!! YES 10... One squirt in the morning is all I need for all day (of course I use more). But even if I use it 5 times in a day and Avery uses it a few it's not really going anywhere. One pump foams up like crazy and it's hardly using any of the solution at all.

It's silica based so it doesn't dry out your hands.

And the 1.5 oz is good for 120 applications!! Prefense protects against staph, strep, E.coli, drug resistant MRSA strains, and more.

It was really nice to use. Rubs in nicely and isn't sticky, stinky or too wet. It rubs in all the way and is dry very fast.

They also offer an 8oz container which is good for about 636 applications!!!! It would easily last a year! They also carry hand sanitizing wipes!

Price: The 1.5oz is $6.99, 8oz is $16.99. It's a little pricier then others, but the no alcohol is a huge feature and it will last a long time.

Overall: *****

Dora's Garden Gazebo Mega Bloks Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*



I received the Lovely Dora's Garden Gazebo from Mega Bloks for review. The review was due by May 9th, but that was Avery's birthday and I wanted to save it until then, so she agreed to let me wait a few days to write the review.

As soon as I got the toy in the mail, I thought the package was small and it certainly couldn't be quite that entertaining. I was wrong! Avery loves it to pieces.


She has an interchangeable skirt which Avery loves. Then there's a table, a planter with sunflower, the gazebo, a tree, a watering pot. The watering pot fits in Dora's hands perfectly. It grips in there so she can really hold it. 

So far Avery loves it, it's only been 3 days, but she's played with the set nonstop since she got it. She loves Dora, Dora is her favorite so I knew this would be perfect for her.

It was just now when I went to the Mega Bloks website to find the link for this set that I discovered they have a TON of Dora Sets to choose from. I was offered either this Gazebo set or the Bath Time set. I'm sure she'd have been happy with either, but I liked the Gazebo better!!
They have like 11 sets just from Dora alone to choose from!!! So it's super neat. I just might buy her another set or 2 for Christmas.

Price: The Gazebo and Bath time are $14.99 SO WORTH IT. They also have a few for $9.99 and some for a little more as well. They have a nursery for $20, Playtime Adventure for $30. All worth it though I'm sure.

Overall: ***** Getting lots of use and keeping her entertained.

Zoey's Attic Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*



I have had this website bookmarked for over 6 months now. I knew we'd be trying eventually for another baby and I knew that as soon as I found out I was pregnant I would be contacting Zoey's Attic. I love all of her shirts, but her Big Sister To Be shirts are what I had my eye on.

The day after I found out I was pregnant I contacted her. She was so happy to send me a shirt and she went to work.
I told her to send either the Pink Love Bug shirt in a 4T on Pink OR the Whimsy Birds I'm Going to be a Big Sister OR lastly the Big Sister to be Owl.
She sent me the Pink Love Bug and I'm so happy with it!!!

It's a 4t, but it's a unisex style shirt so It's really wide. I rubberband the bottom corner of it to make it smaller and it works for now. At least I know it will fit her until December!

 The back!!!
 You've all seen this picture already! I love it.
She loves this shirt. She LOVES the ladybug. She knows what it says now. I told her she was wearing it the day I told her she was going to be a big sister. She's so happy!! She can't wait. 

I was going to wait to tell her, but we were going to appointments and had an u/s and I didn't want her to wait too long. She hasn't asked any questions yet, but once in a while she'll say "you're going to have another baby" so she's pretty excited. 

Anyway, I really couldn't decide between the shirts and here's why

Now you see why my decision was so difficult!! 

But I'm glad she sent me the Love Bug. Avery I call my little Bug, so it was fitting.

The material is great. The shirt is by Rabbit Skins so it's a good brand. I washed it and dried it. It seems to have shrunk a little, but not significantly so that's good. What I really like is these aren't just screenprinted on, they are like a part of the shirt material, it's not just printed. So it's weird, but it won't fade anymore than the natural fading of the fabric. Which is also nice!!

I really do love this shirt. They have some that are front AND back, like this
They also have big brother shirts. Big brother to BE shirts. Mom to be, Dad to be, Grandparents to be and Aunt/Uncle to be. Birthday boy and girl shirts as well. 

There's lots to choose from
And in her Etsy store she also has Sibling Shirt Sets. Here's some examples
I could go on and on. Her designs are super adorable. Most of those sibling sets can be Sister or Brother. And I think she'd mix and match too. 

I just might buy a set when this one comes. Big sister and Little... for them! How cute.

Price: Toddler shirts (like I received) are about $16. The Sibling sets (of 2) are $32. I think her prices are reasonable!

Overall: ***** Love the quality. It came super fast (within a week) and I just love the quality!

Artisana Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*



We love peanut butter here in our house. Avery has a sandwich almost every day, and I put it on bagels and crackers and anything really. When I had the chance to try out different nut butters from Artisana. I jumped.

We were sent 2 full size jars of Coconut Butter and Cashini. They also sent along single serve squeeze packets in every flavor!
They have a lot of flavors and honestly, they sent me the 2 least favorite in the full size!! Cashini is Cashew and Tahini (sesame seeds). 

My favorite so far has been the Cashew and the Walnut. The macadamia was pretty good too. Haven't tried the Cacao Bliss yet and the Coconut was hard when we got it (because it was cold that day). 

They also send along Coconut Oil which will be put to use. YUM. I love cooking with it. 
They have a ton of flavors. Avery has been using the Cashini on her sandwiches, she doesn't complain about it, but it's not very sweet at all. I would prefer it if they had a bit of added sugar in them to sweeten them up a bit.Peanuts are sweet without added sugar and these aren't so sweet. 

But they have a great consistency. Easy to spread (except the coconut oil) and they aren't too runny so she's not dripping out of her  sandwich constantly. 

Price: 16oz jars vary depending on the store. But are about $13-$17! A bit pricey, but they are healthier than peanut butter. 

Overall: **** I'm not a fan, but it's a taste preference thing and Avery's eating them.

Ecoland Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*



Sponsored by Tomoson.com It's hard to find good quality, Organic items for kids. You can hardly ever find them in the store and finding accessories is even harder. 
Ecoland comes together to make this happen. They were kind enough to send me a Girl's Flower Quarter Sock for review in the 2-6T size. It's a 3 pack. 




They fit her perfectly. I don't know that they'll still fit her in 2 years when she's 6, but they just might surprise me. She has small feet for her age (only in a size 10 shoe). So that is iffy if they'll fit. 

But they fit now and that's what's important. I love them. They are so soft. She loves them. She's had no complaints about them so far and she likes the cute little flower on the side. So far, So good. 

Ecoland has Organic Cotton Socks and many other things for the family. They also have Baby Girl Flower Socks and then of course the Toddler Girl Flower Socks  that we reviewed. They also have socks for boys and youth, Women's intimates and socks and men's socks. They also have some baby clothes.

They are made in the USA which is AWESOME!!! To find a great Organic Accessory and have it be made in the USA is fantastic. 

Ecoland wants to offer my readers a code! GRLFLW15 will give you 15% off any online purchase until May 31st. 

Price: These girl's socks are $12 for 3 pair!! AWESOME. 

Overall: ***** Love them!

8 Weeks!



I was 8 weeks yesterday. Can't believe how much I'm showing already (bloat?).

Picky Sticky review coming soon!

When I found out I was pregnant (3.5-4 weeks) my stomach measured a 30" Now just 4 weeks later it's a 34". I've grown 4" in just about 4 weeks!!!! CAN'T Believe it. I'm pretty sure it's all bloat though. It will go away and then a few weeks later I'll start growing baby!! Baby is the size of a raspberry after all this week, so there's no way I could look like I swallowed a large grapefruit right?

Preggie Pops and Drops Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*



I contacted Three Lollies (maker of Preggie Pops) the day I found out I was pregnant because I was so nauseous that day and knew I needed relief as soon as possible. He quickly agreed and later that week I had a sample of Preggie Pops and a sample of Preggie Pop Drops



I'm so glad he sent along a variety of each. It gave me a chance to try each flavor. 

I like the drops better. They are easier to just let dissolve in my mouth and not have to worry about which is kind of nice.

Of course after being in contact with Preggie Pops my nausea has pretty much gone away. I have a couple nights where I feel off, so I'll take one of these, but luckily it hasn't been major! I'm very thankful for that. And at almost 8 weeks I'm pretty sure I won't get it this time either!!!! 

They do help though. The few nights where I've felt queasy and off, I take 1-2 of these or 1 drop and 1 pop and I feel better almost immediately. They have ginger in them which is great for a nausea reducer and I just feel great. 

I have to admit though the Lavender flavored pop I thought would be weird but it was surprisingly good!! YUMMY. I love all the flavors I've tried so far too. 

Price: I think it is so worth it. $5.50 for 21 drops and $3.95 for 7 pops. You can get variety or 1 flavor.

Overall: ***** I loved them!!

ResVitale Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*



Everyone wants to look and feel younger tight? ResVitale has just the right things to help you achieve that.

We received the new Elixir and the new Collagen Enhance Chews

Resveratrol is a powerful polyphenol found in the skin, seeds, stem and vine of red wine grapes that exerts significant antioxidant properties. Thought to serve as one explanation for the French Paradox - the idea that the French have a remarkably low incidence of heart disease compared to Americans despite a diet rich in high-fat foods - Resveratrol has over 2,000 associated clinical studies documenting the amazing benefits. 

It is found primarily in Red Wine. I got these just less than 1 week after finding out I was pregnant. Although there is no traces of alcohol in these items I thought it was probably best I didn't take them. 
So Jon has been my guinea pig and has been. 
He takes the Elixir daily. He said it goes down smooth and has a decent flavor to it. I had a little taste of it and I agreed. The taste was a bit tart (like grapes can be) but it was okay. You take 1tsp a day of it. It's a 30 day supply.  This elixir has as much Resveratrol as 500 glasses of wine!! That's why I was leery of taking it.
Elixir has great antioxidant benefits, as well as enhances metabolic efficiency for increased energy, maximizes caloric burn during exercise and improves cardiovascular function.

The chews he doesn't want to take but he agreed to try one for me. He said it was soft, had a good sweet flavor and went down smoothly. He said it was almost like gummy vitamins. 

ResVitale has lots of other items to try as well. They have Keratin Enhance, Beauty Sleep, Beautiful Legs and more.

Price: Elixir is $30. Collagen Chews are $20. Each are a 30 day supply. 
They are available at GNC!

Overall: ***** I guess. He said he liked them, but it's hard to see if they're working yet.

iColor3D Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*




Sponsored by Tomoson.comEvery child loves to color right? Well what about coloring in 3D???? That's what iColor allows. It's so cool.

We received the Deep Sea Coloring book and it's really neat. They come with included glasses. You color it in, be careful not to color over the lines and then put on the glasses and your image comes to life.
There's really nothing much better for children is there? This is the coolest thing. Avery has really enjoyed coloring this and just watching everything come to life. I've had to help her color hers as to stay in the lines and it's a hoot every time. There's lots of images in each coloring book so your child isn't going to get bored with it any time soon.

There are 4 books to choose from, Under Sea, Castle, Dinosaur and Playground. And at $5.99 each I think it's awesome.

Perfect for a birthday gift for the child who has everything. Because nobody has a 3D coloring book yet!!!

Price: $5.99 each.

Overall: ***** love this. It's tons of entertainment.
