I Remember When My Baby Was a YoBaby [+ a YoBaby Swag Giveaway!]

YoBaby Giveaway

This post was created in partnership with Stonyfield.  All opinions are my own. I remember when my baby was a YoBaby... in fact, both of them!  As a young, first-time Mom I read all the books and followed all the "rules".  I knew babies weren't supposed to have milk before age 1 and I assumed yogurt was the same.  I was wrong.  I wondered why I kept seeing yogurt as one of the early foods, even as early as 6 months in some lists. In fact, that assumption is the reason I wrote a post for the Stonyfield Organic blog just last year about Why Babies Can Eat Yogurt Before Age 1. My baby was a Stonyfield Organic YoBaby because of the ingredients.  Like all parents, I only wanted the best for my girls, which was why I chose Stonyfield Organic for them when they were tiny tots and why I still choose Stonyfield for them today!  Stonyfield … [Read more...]

The Ultimate Jamberry Giveaway

Ultimate Jamberry Giveaway Square

We just rang in 2015 and with a New Year comes the chance to develop a new YOU! In September of last year, I discovered Jamberry Nail Wraps and immediately become a consultant.  I knew from the first time that I used them that I would be kicking nail polish to the curb for both myself and my girls.  The wraps are non-toxic, last way longer than polish lasts on all of us, and are truly affordable when you breakdown the value of one sheet. In the past few months, I've worn a lot of wraps [it's one of the best perks of being a Jamberry Consultant for sure!] and I've had a lot of favorite Jamicures, but this one is definitely my favorite. My all-time favorite wrap has to be Sugar & Spice, but I'm totally crushing on a Valentine's Day inspired wrap, Love Spell right now. Of course I love being a Consultant because I have the … [Read more...]
