Mother’s Day Giveaway

Mother's Day (1)

Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 13th! Setting aside a day to honor Mother’s is a tradition going back centuries. Most celebrate by spending the day with their Mom and exchanging gifts.

As a Mom and a daughter, this day means a lot to me. I became a Mom at a very young age and although it wasn’t planned, it changed my life for the better. I now have three kids. I will admit being a Mom of three kids is a lot more challenging than I expected. I’ve had good days and bad days. I have even gone through postpartum depression (more on that later). It hasn’t always been easy. Yet, I wouldn’t change it for the world. The sleepless nights, the tears, the stress are worth those moments that remind me why I would do anything in the world for them. Becoming a mom has been the best thing to ever happen to me.

So many times you feel like you've failed. But in the eyes, heart, and mind of your child, you are SUPER MOM.

Let us all try and remember all the Mother’s in the world and make their day as special as possible. They may act like it’s no big deal, but I guarantee you it is. Acknowledge them and make them feel appreciated because being a Mom is one of the hardest jobs in the world.

Easter Baskets

There is a variety of fun Easter basket options available. I like these tin versions because they last longer and come in many different prints. It’s always fun to buy empty baskets to fill yourself because every kid is different and enjoys different things.

Easter Metal Dino Basket – Spritz, Green

Plastic Eggs

I always end up buying new plastic eggs as they all get cracked and broken eventually. I fill the eggs with candy, toys, and stickers to hide around the house. The girls are always so excited to wake up in the morning to find all the hidden eggs the Easter Bunny left behind. There are so many different styles of plastic eggs available, in many different sizes.

Holiday Traditions with Gymboree

theme-christmas-77078

The Holiday season is officially here! It’s such a magical time of year, especially as a kid! I remember growing up, Christmas was the one time of year I looked forward to. My sister’s and I would enjoy making our Christmas list for Santa. As the days got closer to Christmas Day, we would be so excited we couldn’t sleep. We would wake up bright and early on Christmas morning, ready to see if we got what we hoped for. Of course, there were more moments that made Christmas so special. We would buy hot cocoa, play Christmas music and drive around town looking at Christmas lights. We would also spend time baking cookies, watching movies, and spending time around the campfire. The holiday events, visiting Santa, the Christmas parades, and of course the Christmas tree! That was one of my favorite parts of Christmas as a kid, decorating the Christmas tree. I feel like a kid myself around the holidays and there is nothing better than sharing these moments with my own children.

Christmas theme cookies

Gymboree Sale On Now!

Rainbow Mama Bear & OOAKPL

Thanksgiving has come and gone, and so has a ton of sales! I had to stop looking as I just couldn’t justify any more online shopping. Either way, I did manage to score some major deals! One recent sale was from the stylish brand of Loved by Hannah and Eli! It’s a small business run by Sarah Duncan who makes all of the adorable “Mama Bear” apparel we know and love. I scored a Rainbow Mama Bear  – Vneck from her recent sale and I am loving the rainbow lettering!

It’s part of her Rainbow Mama Bear collection, which pays tribute to those who have suffered a miscarriage or infant loss. Proceeds from this collection are donated to charity’s that offer grief counseling and other services for these suffering Moms. I myself have never gone through an infant loss or miscarriage, but a close friend of mine has. It was a heartbreaking experience to watch her go through. So when I saw this beautiful rainbow tee, I automatically thought of her and had to get it!

There are so many cute collections available at Loved by Hannah and Eli. She is very active on social media and is constantly running fun giveaways, especially in her VIP group on Facebook. Such a fun community I am so excited to be a part of! I will also say that the customer service I received was beyond belief! She went above and beyond for me and I couldn’t be happier.

Along with my new “Mama Bear” t-shirt, I also scored some fun goodies from my favorite  Ju-Ju-Be! Not only do they carry diaper bags and accessories, but they also carry keychains and lanyards. As soon as I saw these I had to have them.

jjbstarslanyard1

There are many different print lanyards to choose from available online at the Ju-Ju-Be Pink Lady Shop. The OOAKPL – Premium Silver Keychains are still available for purchase as well, but the OOAKPL Rose Gold Keychains are not currently in stock.

mamabear jjb

The Ju-Ju-Be OOAKPL Keychains stand for – One of A Kind Pink Lady. A Pink Lady is basically a hard-core Ju-Ju-Be Fan. There is a very large community of women (and some men!) who all share a strong love and passion for everything Ju-Ju-Be. There used to be a Ju-Ju-Be forum of fans called The Pink Room, but it has now become a chat group on Facebook. We all share our new bag prints and styles, ask questions, and have a first look at the new releases, special sales, etc. It is really quite amazing and it’s a group I am proud to be a part of. I have always been kind of obsessed with purses and bags, so it’s not surprising I would fall down the rabbit hole known as Ju-Ju-Be! There can never be enough and you will always feel the need to #buyallthebags. If this sounds like you, make sure you find us at The Pink Lady Chat – PLC on Facebook.

Since I was lucky enough to receive 2 of the Silver OOAKPL Keychains, I am going to be giving one away in an upcoming OOAKPL Giveaway! Make sure you’re following me on social media and share the news with your fellow pink lady friends! Stay tuned for more info to come!
