Blabla Kids Mini Knit Doll Giveaway

As of yesterday, all four giveaways are now live on the blog! Click these links to enter:

Badger Balm
Blabla Kids
Opposite of Far
BAGGU

You have until next week to enter (the first one closes Monday) so don’t miss your chance! Be sure to follow the rules listed in the blog post for each specific giveaway.

I’ll be contacting the winners directly and also updating each blog post with the name of the winner. If I suddenly go awol though, it probably means I’m in labor and will be sure to contact the winners as soon as I can. (This is just wishful thinking. I’m sure I’ll still be here waddling around.)

Good luck and have a wonderful weekend!Badger Balm GiveawayOpposite of Far Kids Mask GiveawayGiveaway: BAGGU 3D Zips to organize your diaper bag

{GIVEAWAY: DAY 4} BAGGU [CLOSED]

Baggu_3D_Zips_Giveaway_4
The final day of giveaways features my favorite on-the-go bags by BAGGU: the 3D zip bags. I have three of these, too, though their shape was a bit different when I bought them, and I use them EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. I use one bag for snacks, one for diapers/wipes/etc. and the other for suntan lotion and wet swimwear in the summer and random odds and ends during other seasons. They’re nylon so any food or lotion spills stay contained and wash off really easily. These bags truly are the best way to keep your diaper bag both clean and organized. It also makes life easy when it comes to transferring items from one bag to the next without forgetting the essentials. Even Isla knows which bag contains her snacks (the red one with the yellow kitties on it!) and goes straight for it anytime she can get her hands inside my bag!

BAGGU already sent me the bags for you so the winner of this giveaway will receive the three bags shown above. You’ll receive one in each of the three sizes they sell: large, medium and small (shown below in official BAGGU images to give you an idea of size).

Keep scrolling for giveaway info and rules. GOOD LUCK!

{GIVEAWAY: DAY 3} OPPOSITE OF FAR [CLOSED]

Opposite of Far Kids Mask GiveawayRemember this mask? I’m obviously obsessed with all the adorable ways to play make-believe with Opposite of Far so we’re offering you guys another way to join the fun. The winner of this giveaway will get a $25 gift certificate (in the form of a promo code) to this shop. Most of the masks only cost $20 (a few are $22 or $24 and the sets get a little more expensive) so this gift certificate will cover the cost. I’d suggest my favorites, but I literally can’t decide. I want the shark for Shark Week, the peacock just because it’s so stinking cute, a raccoon for my soon-to-be baby boy because why not?, the bee set because her name is Isla Bee (!!) and since she’s a cat lady, the black cat, obviously. Um, and there are beards! Ha. See, I told you I love them ALL!

Isla wears her masks all the time … while reading a good book, running circles in the nursery, coloring, watching Sesame Street or when mama begs her to put one on so I can take her picture. She loves them and looks pretty darn cute, if I do say so myself. When the fox isn’t being used I hang it above baby boy’s crib. Oh, and Isla can’t quite say the word “fox” yet so instead she says something that sounds like a very, VERY, V E R Y bad word. Gets me every time.

These are great for Halloween, as gifts, for kids’ theme parties or just for every day playtime. And since there are no losers here, if you don’t win the giveaway, don’t forget Opposite of Far has generously offered a promo code so you guys can get a discount.

{GIVEAWAY: DAY 2} BLABLA [CLOSED]

Blabla Kids Mini Knit Doll GiveawayMeet Kiwi, Isla’s best feline friend. “Kiwi” is what it sounds like when Isla says “kitty” so the name has kind of just stuck. In reality, this is Colette the Cat from an adorable shop called Blabla. We love her. Isla reads to her, makes me kiss her at bedtime and snuggles her like she’s a real cat. Did I mention I’m totally (and accidentally) raising a cat lady? Kiwi sleeps with Isla every night and would travel with us around the house and out the door if we let her, though I try to keep her confined to the nursery so she doesn’t get too dirty, or worse, LOST! That would be devastating and I can’t even go there right now.

Thanks to the sweet folks at Blabla, you guys can enter to win one of their adorable mini dolls (12 inches in size). Let me tell you, you’re going to love these dolls. They come in a variety of characters and animals and each one is incredibly soft and cuddly. My favorite thing about Kiwi is she doesn’t have any loose pieces that Isla can chew off. My kid puts everything in her mouth and destroys it, like a puppy. Kiwi has withstood the harassment! Now I just need one for baby boy. I’ve got my eye on you, Theo the Cat (wink wink, hint hint)!

{GIVEAWAY: DAY 1} BADGER [CLOSED]

Badger Balm GiveawayWe’ve used Badger brand sunscreen since the day Isla turned six months old. Our favorite local kids shop, Cloth, sells and highly recommends it so I did some research of my own, comparing it to other organic, natural options out there, and decided to give it a try. After two summers, we’ve never used anything else on Isla and don’t plan to because it works so well. We’ve used both the lotion and the face stick resulting in zero burns on that precious baby skin.

As loyal Badger users we’ve asked the company to donate a collection of four items to one of you. I can only vouch personally for the sunscreen, but I’d use any one of these products in a heartbeat. The giveaway includes: 1. bar of Baby Soap; 2. Baby Oil; 3. Baby Sunscreen; and 4. an item for you moms and dads: a tin of Badger Sleep Balm, since we all know sleep is hard to come by once baby arrives!

{NOTE: Please consult your doctor before using sunscreen or other products on your child. I am not a doctor and I don’t know anything about skin! Everything in this post is based solely on my personal opinion and experience as a normal mom/consumer.}

And now a picture of Isla on the beach because she’s cute and she’s covered in Badger Sunscreen, even though you can’t tell.
