{Shabby Apple}

We love Shabby Apple.  In fact, so much so that this is the second time we have mentioned them on our blog! With a company like Shabby Apple there is a lot to love. First, their dresses are beautiful and high-quality and cover “enough skin to make you really feel comfortable.” They say their dresses are “a return to what dresses were always meant to be – a one-piece outfit. No need to add anything … no tank tops, no cardigans, nothing (except accessories, of course!).”  Shabby Apple sent me the “Oh La La” dress to try. It is well-made and stylish, and I love it. I also love Shabby Apple’s “Style Tools” that can help you choose the perfect dress for your body type and offers style advice.

It is also awesome that Shabby Apple is a globally conscious company. Shabby Apple donates a portion of each dress sold to provide micro-loans to help women in developing countries start businesses of their own to provide for their families. Each dresses has a tag that tells you about a micro-loan success story. So not only do you get a dress that helps you look and feel great, but you can also feel good about helping to change the life of a woman in a developing country.

As you can see, there is a lot to love about Shabby Apple, and we always look forward to seeing their new collections as they come out.

{Affinitas Intimates} + Giveaway

I’m excited to tell you guys about Affinitas Intimates and the Berry Ball, and I’m happy to tell you that one lucky STM reader will win an Affinitas Intimates bra and panty set AND a Berry ball! Yay!  Before we get to the giveaway, let me tell you about them:

Affinitas Intimates has a great selection of both everyday and special occasion lingerie. Their French design team has created some great styles. Feminine, flirty, vixen, glamorous – their collection seems to have it all. I got the the Affinitas’ Rose Half-Padded Bra & Brazilian Thong set.
 It is pretty, feminine and very comfortable. I normally don’t discuss cost in my reviews since value really is relative, but I do have to say that in my opinion Affinitas Intimates has done a great job of combining high quality and style with affordability.

Since I have my cute new bra and panty set, I was very excited to try the Berry Ball and bag as well. The Berry Ball is a specially designed container used to wash bras and can be used to keep bras from getting crushed during travel.
I have to admit I’m one of those people who just tosses my bras in with the rest of the laundry. I know I should handwash, but it’s just too time consuming. The idea of the Berry ball is to let you wash bras in the washer, but helps them maintaining shape, comfort and support giving you hand-washed results. You do need to hang them to dry. The ball also has a Scrubbing Ball that is “specifically designed to clean bra cups from the inside, creating friction to both clean and aid in dissolving detergent as well”

The berry bag is used wash underwear, hosiery, socks and other delicates and can be used for travel as well. Its very well designed. It even has a little flap that the zipper tucks under to keep it from coming open in the wash.  The Berry Ball and Bag seem work great so far (I’ll update you after I’ve used them longer), and I’m happy that I can take better care of my undergarments without any extra work!

Where To Buy
Affinitas Intimates are available on line including at HerRoom.com (link to the Rose set http://www.herroom.com/Affinitas-Intimates-Rose,1839,9.html) and LaurenSilva.com and in boutiques(here’s a store locator)

Berry Ball and Bag – If you want learn more about the Berry Ball they have a video here. You can get one at comforthouse.

They have fleece fashion and accessories available for  adults, kids, babies and even your pets! I love all the vibrant color and prints they offer. I was so delighted to to receive some of their super fun fleece products. I was able to try out the adult wraps in Brown.

Great for casual wear with jeans, for cool evening walks, wrapping up around the campfire, or for cozying up on the couch on a winter’s evening…then dress it right up for an evening on the town!

{My Vintage Baby}

Shopping for modern, trendy kids clothes i often find myself heading online. For my son in particular. There just aren’t that many options for boys clothes that are fun and edgy. My little dude loves to sport the rock n roll look and it fits him very well. With that in mind it made it so easy to find something from My Vintage Baby.  The selection of boys is so hip and fun with some styles offering a little edgier feel. He is rockin now with the Rock King shirt and matching striped shorts.

This outfit is some of the best quality pieces he has. I love him in it and he does look like a little rock king. It came packaged beautifully and has been a total pleasure to work with them. And since we all aren’t dressing little dudes we better talk about about the fantastic selection for girls. Simply beautiful, modern and so full of amazing color. But it doesn’t stop there cause you can even get  something for yourself cause they have really cute tops for women too! See all the items available now!

{Graffeeti Shoes} Summer Carnival Giveaway

There have been so many things that have gotten cooler since i was a kid.  Kids shoes in particular . Looking back at old pictures of me in as a kid i always had on the same blue Velcro shoes. Maybe they didn’t come in pink? It was the 80s after all! Now that i am a mom i am always on the hunt for durable stylish shoes for my three kids. When finding Graffeeti i was amazed how they are able to bring the idea of being creative using your shoes as a canvas.  It seems like a great way to let your child express themselves in a positive way.

Each pair of shoes includes six multi-colored pens. Writing and drawings can be easily removed with a soft cloth giving your child to change it as they want. Graffeeti has totally fresh styles for boys and girls. My 10 year old loved these!! I think that they are durable and really cute. I could not be happier with them. I will also tell you how rad their backpacks look! Check them out!

You can find all their styles available at Graffeeti.

Ruby Slippers Review

Handmade is such a wonderful thing! I love it when I find something handmade that is wonderful like the baby and toddler handcrafted shoes at Ruby’s Slippers. I was completely excited about my son Skyler trying a pair. He was a really late walker so at 20 months now the little guy has only one pair of real shoes. I have always let him go in socks on short trips in the car, because he takes off the bulky store bought shoes almost immediately:)
When I got these they went on his feet and didn’t come off until bath-time. And then they went back on before bed. He slept in them. I couldn’t believe how much he loved these. They were soft, light weight and and had robots on them! What more could my little guy want? Well he has wore them daily since then. When I go on short errands we use these. When were in the house they are on his feet. When we play on the patio, they are there too. He wont let them out of his sight. Needless to say after the first week they were DIRTY! And even had substances that I can not mention on there(He is a Boy and a Baby). I washed them with all of the other stinky boy stuff, and they came out softer and clean! I love that they went with most of his outfits and were a fun print.

They are so durable, and the detail in the stitching is awesome. She was a pleasure to work with and even took his chubby feet into consideration when making him his pair. They came packaged perfect for gift giving or for your own baby. I hope you will visit Ruby’s Slippers for the comfort of your little ones feet.
