SmocksnBondsBoutique Instagram Giveaway!

Standard

IMG_2368

And so it begins … A few weeks ago, I came across this Instagram account, smocksnbondsboutique with the cutest little baby rompers! I fell in love with a couple of the ruffle booty variety ensembles, so I reached out to the Etsy owner, Lauren, to see if she’d be interested in letting me review one of her rompers and doing a giveaway. Well imagine my pleasure when she was interested in both!!

Well, I received this adorable pink and blue elephant romper just in time for the NJ summer heat!

elephantromper

The romper is so well-made!! The fabric is substantial, everything is double seamed, and it’s finished with a zig zag stitch! Lauren says, “I want that garment to last!” I was also very pleased that the bottom is closed with three zaps!! She knows about those diaper changes! As I wanted this romper to fit Wyntr the whole summer, I did ask for it to have a little room to grow, so the straps were a little long. But, I fixed that with a couple of safety pins in the back and by criss-crossing the straps. Then, we were good to go! All in all, I’m in LOVE with this romper and my pumpkin in it!! Seriously, who can resist a ruffled baby booty?!

I had this LOOONNNNG post about why I forgot to pick a winner for my Workout Giveaway and blamed it on my work schedule, technology and my selective memory.

But, for real … in the end … I JUST FOR FORGOT!

So, with no further ado … (drumroll) … the winner is …

APRIL WELLS

E-mail your address to hairscapades@gmail.com and you’ll have a jump rope coming your way!

And just for the record, I expect that there will be a report of some kind that comes out in the next year or two that says jumping rope is one of the top 5, easiest, economical, most effective, and efficient exercises EVER! When it comes out, remember where you heard it first!

Stay safe and eat healthy over the hoildays …

EboniCurls Ebonnet Sets Giveaway Winners!!

Standard


I loved reading all of the comments about your wonderful mothers on the Ebonnet Giveaway post!! Mothers are truly a blessing from God. I spent yesterday with my mom and two grandmothers for a belated Mother’s Day as I didn’t get to see them last Sunday. I am thankful to have such wonderful role models in my life. Every conversation with my mom reminds me of why I think she is the best mother in the world (I realized when I was a teenager that most kids think that and, if they don’t, something ain’t right). So, just shouting out the moms in my life! LOVE YOU MUCH!!

Okay, now without further ado …

The winners of the Ebonnet sets are …

HAZEL PITTMAN
