Joey Totes Giveaway!

I am always on the lookout for fun new reusable totes. I think it's a bit of an obsession, but hey, at least it's one that's saving the planet!

This time I happened upon Joey Totes, and here's why I like these ones:

They come in their own attached little bag so that you can just fold it up and store it away. Love that.

It can carry up to 40 lbs! No need for millions of bags....this can carry it all! Love that.

You can wash them! Lots of reusable bags you can't wash, so they only live a short while. But these? Last. Forever. Love that.

Now you need to have a set, and luckily you can! They are offering one of my readers a set of their very own.

It's easy to win, just leave a comment!

Go Picnic! {A Giveaway}

Just so you know, I'm pretty choosy when it comes to my reviews and giveaways. If I am approached with something I don't think me or my readers will love, then generally I turn it down.

So when I share something with you, know that it's because I had high hopes for the product.

And the one I'm getting to share with you this week, I am LOVING!!! Seriously, I think it's genius and on top of that, nutritious and yummy.

GoPicnic is kinda like a high class Lunchable, but better in every way. They are ready to eat meals that are made with natural ingredients, and you don't even need to refrigerate them, so you can take them anywhere and everywhere.

Did I mention how yummy they are?!?

Oh. My. Word.

Okay, so anyway...here is what else caught my attention. They have a plethora of options, which helps with any and every kind of food craving or aversion you may be having.

From their website, let me show you just why you are going to love these:

Back to school shopping

The thing I love about the fall is that I have two reasons to go shopping. One, we have to get new clothes for back to school and two, it's fall and we need warmer clothes. And of course when shopping for the kids, a mom must also shop for herself, because if she didn't, well....that would just be wrong. At least in my universe.

As I always say, family means nobody gets left behind....in fashion.

It's just that, while some may call me a whimp, I am not quite brave enough to take my preschooler AND my infant into a shopping mall. At least not if I am hoping to have a magical shopping experience, and in all honesty, that shopping high is just something I am not willing to sacrifice.

So to the world wide web I go.

More specifically, Zappos.com.

And because I care about your shopping experience as well, let me just get you started with a few basics, and then send you on your way to enjoy your very own shopping high that only Zappos can bring you.

Since we as moms always have to think about others first, let's begin with the children, shall we?

Looking for the perfect cute shirt to send little Jr. off to his first day of school? You can get no cuter than this button up right here.

And for the princess in your life, nothing says "I have style" more than this little number here.

And now that we have the kids taken care of, we can't leave the momma or, okay, even daddy left out.

I am DYING over this amazing dress here, and my man will look just as dapper in this standing next to me.

Okay, so now that you have just a little taste of the shopping bug, head over to Patagonia on Zappo's yourself and enjoy the magic.
