Sprouting Threads $25 Credit! #KidsFashions

Sprouting Threads is a subscription based clothing service that gives the members options of frequency, quantity & assortment to meet their family’s needs. Members are also given the option to “rethread” (or send pieces back after their child outgrows them) for store credit. Keep what you like and return the rest. Prices vary depending on what is kept. Free shipping both ways.  My favorite thing about it is that you set up your child's tastes so they get something you and they will love, but you also are surprised!  We really loved our first box!

Sprouting Threads sends boutique styles from brands like Matilda Jane...

...and Pink Chicken!

The Box
Sprouting Threads ships via UPS and arrives in just a few days. You have 5 business days to try on the pieces--I chose 2 outfits in my box but you can select different amounts based on your preference.  The box includes a bag with a prepaid return label so you can keep the pieces you love and return the ones you don’t, at no cost to you.  The fashions are gorgeous and really high quality... and it saves you trips to the store and instead allows your kiddos to try things on in the comfort and convenience of their own home--and it's a really fun way to find new styles.  It's really awesome, a kid's version of Stitch Fix... which I also love and highly recommend!

The Promo
My readers will get a $25 credit when they sign up with any link in this post!  What do you think of Sprouting Threads? Would your kiddos like it?  Would you?  For a women's version of the same thing, check out Stitch Fix!

Back to School With #FabKids! B1G1 Outfit Free!

My twins love their new outfits from FabKids!  Aren't they adorable?  I love their styles!  Big Sis (4 minutes still counts!) is wearing the Tulle Dress Outfit in purple with the Fab Soft Legging in turquoise.  Little Sis is wearing the Neon Cutout Sandle with the Orange Gold Star Outfit and the Fab Soft Legging in black.  By the way, my daughters wear virtually everything with leggings and these ones are their favorites!  They really are "fabulously soft" and they fit perfectly, plus they seem to last longer than the leggings we were buying from Target.

FabKids is a really awesome clothing subscription for children's clothing--each month, you get to pick out an outfit.  My littles love taking turns choosing!  We have so much fun with the lookbook as soon as it comes out every month.  I love that everything is so adorable, so complimentary, there's a wide variety of styles for every kind of kid, and even the shoes match so perfectly!  You (or your kiddos) can customize their monthly outfit to express their originality in just "one-click".

FabKids has a really amazing promo for anyone making a first-time purchase.  All outfits are B1G1 Free with free shipping And all the super cute shoes are, too!

My Black Agate Necklace from Felt Noir
I get so many compliments on this beauty!

I am so in love with my heart pendant from Felt Noir.  The heart is black agate with white topaz.  The chain is sterling silver and, I wish you could see it in real life, the chain has more glitter and shimmer to it than any of my other sterling silver necklaces.  It's gorgeous!  The heart is flattened in the back so it lays gently on your chest, and it's the perfect size.  Very classy. 

Felt Noir is a digital boutique with so much beautiful jewelry!  That's why they have the honor of being #1 on our Gift Guide for Moms.  They've got a money back guarantee, free shipping on orders $75 and up, and buying from them is safe & secure.

Updated: FREE $230 Shopping Spree! (For Real!)

I am officially in love and addicted to Yerdle. Basically you can sell stuff you have laying around the house that you think you don’t use for Yerdle dollars. Then use those dollars to get stuff you want. How cool is that? Right now they are offering a FREE $35 Credit AND FREE SHIPPING on Your First Purchase when you sign up for a free account!

That is a free $35 to spend AND free shipping! 

If you want to earn more (and clean out the house) sell items for more Yerdle dollars to buy stuff you need. It’s REALLY easy to upload items too – take a pic and upload using the app. MUCH easier than eBay. Plus they pay for the shipping, so all you have to do is print out the mailing label and drop it off at any UPS drop box. Let me know if you sign up and find a treasure!

Next up is Gwynnie Bee -- the Netflix of fashion! 
Free 30 day trial!  No Catch

Gwynnie Bee is advertised as being for women sizes 10 and up.  But guess what? I'm a size 6 and I've found some styles I love!  If you're a size 6 or 8, I recommend you sign up for the free 30 day trial and add anything from the Karen Kane or London Times in a Medium or 10 (they run very small).  I've "closeted" a dress I love from them and I really don't think I'm going to send it back.  The beauty of it is, there's no limit to how long you can keep what you love!  With the 30 day trial, you actually get about a 5 week trial.  If you cancel after 30 days, you still have a week to send back anything you still have--and they send you 3 items at once.

Next up is Schoola--where you'll get $50 and free shipping.

With this one, I was able to get $50 worth of free clothes for my girlies, no purchase necessary and free shipping! 

1. click the link or the pic.
2. sign up for an account. that gets you a $15 credit
3. switch to desktop site if on mobile device
4. top of page click collections
5. click new collection
6. create a collection and it gives you a $10 credit
7. shop the site and add $50 worth of clothes to your cart.
8. check out and add coupon code
‪#‎schoolasummer‬ (make sure to include the #)
9. it will take 50% off your order and you get free shipping. Voila!

You can also get $20 free at ThredUp (free shipping there, too!)

And my favorite!  If you have pretty good credit, you can get $125 free from Chase! 

I am a total use-my-credit-card-and-pay-it-off-every-month kind of girl.  That way I get all the goodies (the bonuses & cash back) without having to pay any interest.  This is the card I use for my daily stuff and the cash-back adds up quickly.  Especially right now, because when you apply for it, you get a $100 sign-up bonus if you spend $500 in 3 months--pay your bills with it and buy your groceries and the $500 is spent!  You also get an additional $25 back if you add your hubby to the card--or your mom, or any other authorized user.  Plus, there's 0% interest for 15 months.  Awesome!  So go sign up and have a shopping spree! Expires 11/1/15.

Get $100 cash back with Chase Freedom®. Apply before 6/1/2015 at

P.S. Beauty Bridge will give you from $10-$100 for signing up and then referring friends to their Beauty Rewards Program! No purchase necessary. ;)

Free Crime Thriller Alert: Misery Loves Company

Don’t tell me it’s terrifying. Terrify me.
Filled with grief, Jules Belleno rarely leaves the house since her husband’s death while on duty as a police officer. Other than the reviews Jules writes on her blog, she has little contact with the outside world.

But one day when she ventures out to the local grocery store, Jules bumps into a fellow customer . . . and recognizes him as her favorite author, Patrick Reagan. Jules gushes and thoroughly embarrasses herself before Regan graciously talks with her.

And that’s the last thing she remembers—until she wakes up in a strange room with a splitting headache. She’s been kidnapped. And what she discovers will change everything she believed about her husband’s death . . . her career . . . and her faith.

Dog Park Etiquette with Bil-Jac #Giveaway!

We love to take Lucy to the park when it's nice! We haven't taken her to a "dog park" yet but it sounds like a great way for our four-legged friend to get some much-needed exercise and socialize! Here are some dog park etiquette tips for those of you who are first-timers like us:

1. Clean up - Don't forget to pick up any messes left by your dog! The other pet-lovers at the park will appreciate it.

2. Leave your little puppy at home - Puppies under the age of four months should wait to go to a dog park.

3. Put the phone down - Make sure you are properly supervising your dog.

4. Learn some commands – Your dog should know a few basic commands before you visit a dog park. Most important might be 'come.' Bil-Jac treats are great for teaching! Visit to find the best variety for you!

Lucy is super picky about dog treats, it turns out, but she loves these ones that look like little sausages!  They're sold at Petsmart, Petco, or you can find them near you at

You can win some Bil-Jac Grain Free Dog treats for your pooch! Enter below by 8/31 at 11 pm anyone's time. I'll choose a winner the next day!

Special thanks to the wonderful people at Bil-Jac for this opportunity!  All opinions are honest and our own.

Our Lucy was so excited to unbox her very own PoochPerks Box!  She has tried 4 different boxes and this has been are all-time fave!  It was packed so full of high-quality toys, treats, and puppy care items that I was just as impressed as my pooch!   Lucy unboxed 2 squeekie toys which instantly became her newest babies, a big huge peanut butter doggie bar (her favorite), a bag full of doggie jerky (her other favorite), a heavy-duty chewing toy, some natural ear wax cleaner (I really needed this--dogs with ear hair and ear wax, well, it's not a pretty picture...), some gourmet dog treats, some apple cinnamon bone-shaped dog treats, and a bag of little doggie sausages!  Once we went inside, she took her new babies right to her bed.  She also grabbed that peanut butter dog cookie bar thing and rushed to hide with it... with the wrapping still on!

Mom, Mom, it's for me!
Going inside, just like the dog on the box!
This smells good... and this.... and this!!!  I want to try them all, Mom!

Sit.  Sit.  Good dog! 

Happy puppy loves her PoochPerks!

One thing that is especially cool about PoochPerks is that their treats are all made in the U.S.A. and I believe they were all natural and organic, good for my pooch.  That is awesome and something I love to support!   Their plans always have free shipping and start at $20 and go on up depending on your pooch's needs and mommy's budget.  ;)
