Lovable Labels Review and Discount Code!


Lovable Labels is a Canadian based company with over 400 independent agents all over North America. I was given the opportunity to freely review the Back to School Mega Pack. This was perfect for me because my oldest daughter, Rachel, started Kindergarten this year!

What I love most about the Back to School Mega Pack is... there is a label for everything. I used the metal tags on her backpack as zipper pulls. I used a "clothing dot" on her fabric lunch bag. We put "shoe labels" in her new school shoes. Instead of handwriting her name on her school folder... I used one of the "sticker labels".

The labels are personalized, durable and colorful (red, blue, black or mixed berry)! You can label everything from water bottles, lunch containers, shoes to jackets and backpacks. They are dishwasher, microwave, washer and dryer safe.

The Back to School Mega Pack includes:
· 15 sticker labels

· 60 slimline labels

· 48 Press N’ Stick clothing dots

· 16 shoe labels

· 2 Mini-Metal tags

· 5 Book/Binder stickers

Lovable Labels is offering Bookieboo Raves readers 10% off the Back to School Mega Pack using the code "bookieboo"! Hurry! This offer expires Sept. 9th!

PUR Flavor Options Review and Giveaway!

Our family has been using the PUR Flavor Options pitcher for a week now. It's a hit! My daughters are water nuts! They love the fact that if they want something different... all I have to do is push the Flavor Options button on the pitcher. I love it because I grow tired of just plain water each day. My husband loves it because he actually still drinks just plain water. :)

That's one thing that's so great about the PUR Flavor Options pitcher. The pitcher of water remains free of flavor. The flavor only affects the glass being poured when the Flavor Options Button is pushed.

The PUR Flavor Options pitcher also purifies and filters your water! The secret of the PUR filter is activated carbon. Contaminants such as lead, chlorine, and pharmaceuticals collide with the carbon and get trapped in the intricate pore structure. PUR filtrations remove 98% of lead in your tap water!

Using a PUR Flavor Options Pitcher can save you money! The PUR Flavor Options pitcher can replace up to 2,000 16oz plastic water bottles a year. Not only is that good for your pocketbook, but it's good for the environment!

The last thing I'd like to talk about is health. Drinking water regularly can help to reduce the urge to nibble on snacks throughout the day. Water has NO calories and is best to help with snacking urges and satisfying thirst. Try substituting your soda (150 cal approx) with a glass of water. You'll be doing your weight a favor!

Win: A PUR Flavor Options pitcher

Baby BanZ... Gotta Love Pink! Review and Giveaway!


We have done reviews on Baby BanZ before here at Bookieboo Rave Reviews and Giveaways... but nothing like this. You see... Leah has two boys. I have two girls. When Leah did the review on Baby BanZ... it was from the mom of two boys perspective. I am here to give you a new spin on our very favorite sunglasses.

Our package arrived while I was at BlogHer, so they got a bit of a test drive before I got home. We aren't actually testing Baby BanZ... we are testing out the New JBanZ Junior Banz for kids ages 4-10!

Allison is 3 and she loooves the color green! She is testing out the Little Hunter camo green PatternZ. (Yes... I know they are intended for boys) Rachel is 4 and loves all that is pink! She is testing out the Safari Pink PatternZ. You should see them strutting around town like movie stars in their JBanZ. What little hams I've got! Where on earth did they get that from?! *hmmm*

Even at ages 3 and 4... they are learning to accessorize and match colors. It's so fun to see them deciding what to wear with their JBanZ or wide brim bucket hats!

JBanZ feature 100% UVA/ UVB protection and category 3 POLARIZED lenses! The frames are made of a shatter-resistant polycarbonate and they can even be used to accommodate prescription lenses!

JBanZ also come with their very own case and removable neoprene head strap. My girls like to use the head strap to keep their glasses around their neck when they aren't wearing them. (How stylish!)

Besides being stylish... the strap is functional and helps to keep their sunglasses on when they're running around. The carrying case has a clip that we have attached to their car seats so we will never forget our JBanz!

And... not only does Baby BanZ make the most amazing eyeware protection for children... they also carry sun protecting swimwear and hats!

Win: A $25 Gift Certificate to Baby BanZ

To Enter: Visit Baby BanZ and tell us which style you like best.

Cantaloupe Corner Best T-shirt You'll Ever Own Review and Giveaway

Ok... so the "best t-shirt you'll ever own" might be a bit bias... BUT let me tell you about Cantaloupe Corner...

Jenifer Hall founded her company Cantaloupe Corner the way that many of us did... out of sheer boredom. She was working at an insurance company when mommy duty came-a-calling. Jenifer did what alot of us did and became a stay at home mom.

Soon that feeling set in that she needed to be doing something. (*note* Don't bother sending hate mail about how being a sahm is doing something... I know... I am one... kthxbai) She wanted to be doing something in addition... (happy?)

Jenifer has all sort of crafty training. Check out her profile on Etsy... impressive! The process used in each and every hand designed Cantaloupe Corner t-shirt, is a process of dye removal that Jenifer has refined over the years. I am completely impressed...

Knowing that I am a lover of all things pink... Jenifer gave me a gorgeous light pink t-shirt with a swirly scroll down the side. I was beyond impressed with the crispness of the design. The blank shirt she begins with for her women's line, has a high quality, substantial feeling to it. It's made of 95% cotton and 5% spandex. The spandex is what I really love about this shirt. (as a side note... it smelled really good too)

I have been wearing it and washing it for nearly a week now. I am in love with it for my evening running and for doing my morning Yoga with the little ladies in the living room. It moves with me. It's stretchy and yummy... It's perfectly pretty active wear.


P.S. She makes them for babies and kids too! Simply adorable!

Win

Between Me and You Keepsake Journal Review and Discount Code!


Over the past week or so, I have been busy journaling... but not just any sort of journaling. I have been documenting bits and pieces of my life for my children. I was given a copy of "Between Me and You Mom- A Few Things I've Been Meaning to Ask You". This spiral bound book is a keepsake journal from mother to child.

Inside, each page has a poignant question a child might ask their mother about her life. It's even broken up into categories: When you were a kid, Your youth, My dad, What about me, You (now), Other stuff.

One of my favorite questions is, "What are your memories of being a teenager?" My response?

Sleepovers, late night giggles, boy talk... (has anything changed?) playing sports, winning championships, destroying my knee sliding into home... A car accident, ICU, 2 weeks in the hospital... A break up, tears and more tears... Toilet papering my Math teacher's house... Senior year and getting out of school at noon, Baskin Robbins frozen coffee drinks, slurping and driving with the top down in the "Barbie Ferrari" while blasting No Doubt and singing at the top of my lungs...

We all have memories like this... what better way to share them with your child than in a journal? The journal is hardback and spiral bound. The "Mom" version is in a lovely shade of lilac... Which I happen to love. :) Not only is this a quality journal... It's affordable as well.

The best part of this journal is... It's not just for Mom. There's a keepsake journal to give to everyone in your family: Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt, Uncle, Brother, Sister, Daughter, Son... even your "Honey" and your best "Girl" (Leah... I may send you one! Haha!). There is also a special journal that can be passed around at your next family reunion! How fun would that be? Everyone together... sharing memories of the past and where they fit in the family tree?

I need more than one of these for sure. And so do you! Winston at Sand Dune Publishing has generously given us a special code to receive FREE shipping on the purchase of 2 or more Between Me and You Keepsake Journals. (Expires July 29, 2009) Just type in "Bookieboo" at check out!

Please take some time to visit our guest's website and checkout his product. I promise you that you will want these journals. Now excuse me, I need to move on to the next question... "Do you remember your first date?"

xoxo

Blush - The Topless Undershirt Review and Giveaway!

I've had the opportunity to test out a topless undershirt courtesy of Blush. What is a topless undershirt you ask? Well, It's sort of like a strapless t-shirt worn under another tee shirt. If you love the layered look... this product is for you!

Have you ever had the problem of buying an awesome shirt and it shrinks up in length after washing and drying? Or maybe you just have a long torso... Blush to the rescue!

Do you own a pair of jeans that could put a plumber's (you know) to shame? Throw on a topless undershirt from Blush!

I fall into the second category... I'm not a big fan of low rise jeans... but that's often all that's out there. My favorite pair of jeans are low rise. I dread sitting down and wondering if my tooshie is showing. I didn't have to think about it once while wearing a topless undershirt from Blush!

The soft blend of fabric makes the undershirt so comfortable, you can't even tell it is there.The spandex blend is so soft, yet it stays in place!

Blush even makes a maternity topless undershirt! How awesome is that? Think about how far you could stretch your maternity wardrobe.


Win: (1) topless undershirt from Blush

To Enter: Visit Blush and tell us which style you like best.

Circle of Sentiments Review and Giveaway!

Last week, I got the chance to review the most simplistically beautiful piece of jewelry... Jamie Dadant, the creator of Circle of Sentiments, sent me her Classic Disk Sterling Silver Necklace to try.

I've gotten so many compliments on the timeless quiet beauty of this jewelry. I'm a huge sentimental sap... so this review was perfect for me. (Thanks Leah) I'm a sucker for anything that memorializes my children.

Circle of Sentiments has a wonderful variety of quality, affordable, handmade jewelry. It's all hand stamped! I'm amazed at how perfectly straight our names came out. The craftsmanship is remarkable.

They offer both pre-made and custom pieces. And... they aren't limited to just necklaces! You can find bracelets, charms, and keepsake tins. Don't like silver? How about copper? Do you favor gold? Circle of Sentiments has them all.

I'm stamping the Bookieboo seal of approval on this company!
