Seventh Generation Diapers and Wipes




Babies have the most delicate skin, their newborn baby smooth bottoms only deserve the best & Seventh Generation agrees! Seventh Generation delivers great baby products like diapers & wipes that still get the job done while leaving out the unnecessary ingredients! 

Seventh Generation has an entire line of products from natural laundry detergent to nourishing body wash, they are proud of the products they offer & they truly do make a difference! 


I was sent Seventh Generation Baby Diapers as well as Free & Clear Baby Wipes! The hypoallergenic baby diapers are free of chlorine processing, free of fragrances, inks & petroleum-based lotions. These diapers offer premium absorbency & leak protection for your little bundle of joy, they also feature an unbleached brown core fiber. You can find Seventh Generation Baby Diapers in sizes newborn all the way up to size 6!


The Free & Clear Baby Wipes arrived in a great take-along package, these handy wipes are super-sized & are perfect on baby's skin but are also great for quick clean ups! Seventh Generation's Free & Clear Wipes use 70% less plastic then their classic wipes-thanks to the use of plant materials, how amazing is that?! These hypoallergenic wipes are thick, strong & are free of fragrances, dyes, parabens & phthalates!

MinuteClinic Physicals




Summer is around the corner, are your children attending any fun camps this year? My oldest is attending a three day camp at our church in late July for special needs & we are so excited, this will be our third year in a row! While this particular camp doesn't require a physical, I'm sure as my children get older & get involved in more activities they will need one & where will I go, to MinuteClinic of course!

Growing up I attended a few camps through girl scouts & school & those were some of my best summer memories ever, spending time with friends, exploring the outdoors, cooking over an open fire, I could go on & on about how much I used to enjoy camps when I was younger. 

It's important for you to make sure your child is healthy & safe enough to participate in summer camps & activities, this summer MinuteClinic is offering camp & sports physicals for just $39! That's a savings of $20 but it's only for a limited time!


You can find MinuteClinics in select CVS/pharmacy stores, these walk-in medical clinics provide high-quality care every day & accept most insurances. I've used MinuteClinic before when I was feeling ill & not only do they have the friendliest staff, it's quick, convenient & I can turn around & get my prescription filled right in one stop, what busy Mom doesn't love that? 

So is your child ready for summer camp? Don't miss out on this great special for physicals! Visit MinuteClinic online to find your local CVS/pharmacy store & feel free to stay connected with MinuteClinic on Facebook & Twitter!

PopCakery Review and Giveaway





It's no secret that sweets are probably my biggest weakness, I've made this confession here at IHeart-Motherhood before & well I just can't stay away from them. I don't eat them all the time & I have become a bit more picky about the sweets I choose to consume, but a girl just can't say no to cake! I was recently contacted by PopCakery, I couldn't wait for my mouth-watering Cake Jars to arrive, just browsing the website had me drooling! 

PopCakery is a unique company that I've quickly fallen in love with, they bake thousands of fresh Cake Jars every day & then carefully package & ship them directly to your front door. At PopCakery you will find a variety of Cake Jar flavors including Lemon, Birthday Cake, Mocha, Red Velvet, German Chocolate, Double Chocolate & Guinness.


PopCakery so kindly sent me four mouth-watering Cake Jars which included:
  • Red Velvet - I could live off of Red Velvet & be happy, this is a favorite all around & PopCakery delivers a super moist cake with vanilla bean buttercream in every bite, your sure to love it! 
  • Double Chocolate - If you are looking for something extra sweet, the double chocolate is perfect for you! This cake is rich but oh so good, it's layered with chocolate goodness & fudge frosting from top to bottom.
  • Lemon - The lemon Cake Jar is full of lemon combined with coconut buttercream, it's sweet & tart & the layers are perfect together, every bite had me wanting more! 

One bite from a PopCakery Cake Jar & I was sold, I knew I wanted more & I did just that, I first dove into the Lemon Cake Jar, I honestly couldn't put my spoon down, bite after bite was just amazing, seriously! I couldn't believe how delicious this cake was & not just the Lemon Cake Jar, the Velvet Cake & the Double Chocolate were perfect! Don't worry I didn't eat all four jars in one sitting, but I did try the Double Chocolate a few days later & it was so rich, I couldn't even devour all of it like I did the Lemon, so of course I shared with my children & they thought it was heaven! Velvet Cakes are one of my favorites, while this one was just as satisfying on my taste buds, I think my favorite was the Lemon!


Don't they look delicious? Which PopCakery Cake Jar would you like to try? 


Wether your enjoying PopCakery at home with your loved ones or giving them as a gift, these are truly unique Cake Jars that everyone will love!


Buy it: Purchase your own Cake Jars from PopCakery in 4 packs for $32 or a 6 pack for $48!

Win it: One lucky reader will win a PopCakery "Super Hero Father's Day" 4-pack, just in time for Father's Day!

Elemental Ts Review and Giveaway




Children love to explore, learn & play, Little Sister C absolutely loves animals & learning about them, I was recently introduced to Elemental Ts & I knew my little curious toddler would love these fun & scientific shirts! 

Elemental Ts was founded by two Brooklyn moms who just happen to be long time friends & both have young boys, all of their shirts feature an original graphic design, are machine washable, made of 100% cotton & are individually screen printed by hand in New York. 

I chose two shirts from Elemental Ts that I thought would interest Little Sister C, the Lionfish in hot pink & the Tree Frog in lavender! I did order a size up for my daughter, she normally wears a 4 & I picked out both shirts in the 5/6 size, they are made of 100% cotton so I would suggest ordering one size larger than what your child would normally wear. 


I love how colorful both of the Elemental Ts are & so does Little Sister C! Before she even put the shirts on she was curious as to what the "critters" where on her new shirts! The Lionfish is available in turquoise or hot pink while the Tree Frog is available in iris or lavender. 


My daughter enjoyed learning about the Lionfish & Tree Frog with these fun shirts, it took her no time to point out the eyes on both animals & she was excited to learn more about these creatures & their different parts! 


So what do you think? Which Elemental Ts do you think your child would enjoy wearing?


Buy it: Purchase your own Elemental Ts online for boys & girls in sizes 2T-5/6 for $22! 

Win it: One lucky reader will win a shirt of choice from  Elemental Ts!
