#Followyourart with Gymboree

 I was compensated for this post.

Winter is ending and sunny skies are ahead! Spring is just around the corner and I couldn’t be happier.  I think spring is one of my favorite times of the year. The warmer weather and clear skies make for so many fun outdoor activities. One of our favorite things to do is pack a lunch and head to the park. The kids enjoy the playground, then we like to walk the trails, and do some exploring.

Springtime also inspires lots of arts and crafts at home with my kids. My older daughter is full of creativity and loves making pictures and projects. Even my toddler loves to color and paint as well. We love to find fun projects we can all do together using paint, stickers, glitter, markers, and more! The kids absolutely love it and make a huge mess of course, but they are having fun and that is all that matters. It keeps them happy and quiet for hours, and the memories will last a lifetime.

Another thing I enjoy about Spring is all the bright new styles at Gymboree! There is so much new to see at Gymboree with their #Followyourart campaign and their new spring collection.

The new #Followyourart campaign is inspired by all the ways kids get creative! With bright new styles and fresh new ideas, Gymboree has the spring styles you are looking for.

At Gymboree, you will find quality clothing that will last for years that are both comfortable and stylish. They have so many sales that make their already affordable clothing a better deal. Plus, they have a Rewards program and the opportunity to earn Gymbucks. I know for me I am always looking for good deals on quality clothes for my kids. So hurry and head to Gymboree to get your kids Spring ready with style!

Itzy Ritzy Reusable Snack Bags

Received free to review from Itzy Ritzy, but all opinions are my own.

I am so excited to share with you a collaboration with one of my favorite companies, Itzy Ritzy! They have given me the opportunity to review their fabulous “Snack Happens Reusable Snack and Everything Bags.” I received the XOXO and Donut Shop Snack & Everything Bags along with the Donut Shop Snack Happens Minis.

IMG_3777_edited yes!

First off I have to say my order came in the most gorgeous packaging. The tissue paper, message cards, and the pom-poms were such a nice surprise.

Itzy Ritzy Packaging

I absolutely love that these bags come in such cute prints! The Reusable Snack and Everything Bags in XOXO and Donut Shop are just a few of the prints available. You can find more snack bags in a variety of prints at Itzy Ritzy.

Good2

The Large Snack and Everything Bags are 7-inches by 7-inches. The 2-pack of mini snack bags are 7 inches by 3.5 inches. They are made with a 100% cotton fabric exterior with a food safe, FDA approved, BPA-free lining. The Snack Happens bags are also lead-free, phthalate free, PVC free and CPSIA certified. That way you can use them worry-free. They are also made with a thick water-resistant lining and a zipper top closure to keep everything inside without any mess.

I was so happy to find that these fun bags would be easy to clean. Shake out any crumbs, then hand wash or machine wash cold as needed then air dry. How easy is that?

Good

Not only are the Itzy Ritzy Reusable Snack Bags super cute in all their fun prints, but they are also eco-friendly! They are made of high quality and durable materials that will last. A much greener alternative to the many plastic bags being thrown away on a daily basis.

With three kids, having a diaper bag full of snacks is a necessity. All of my kids are hungry all of the time. So I pack up all of my snack bags with as much food as possible. Makes a day of running errands with the kids much more bearable. I love that everything I pack stays fresh and is so easy for my kids to access. The zippers are smooth and quiet so my kids can snack quietly without all the rustling of plastic and wrappers.  Whether it’s the diaper bag, a packed lunch, or mom’s purse there are so many ways to use them. As great as these bags are for snacks, they can be used to hold so much more!

So how many ways can you use these cute, fun, and practical snack bags?

  • Snacks, fresh fruit, vegetables, lunch bags, school lunches, field trips.
  • Travel, plane trips, road trips, toiletries, medicine.
  • iPods, earbuds, cell phones, cameras.
  • Make-up, jewelry, purse organizer, gift bags.
  • Hiking, camping & beach gear, mini first aid kits, EpiPen, pet supplies, keys, gym cards.
  • Crayons, art supplies, small toys, birthday party or play date favors, back-to-school.

These are just some of the many ways to use the Itzy Ritzy Snack and Everything Bags.  Make sure you head to Itzy Ritzy to pick out your own!

Holiday Traditions with Gymboree

  I was compensated for this post.

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

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.

hannah and eli 1

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!
