Tampa Photographer Photo Session Giveaway

Tampa Photographer photo session review and giveaway

Tampa Photographer Photo Session Giveaway

Just over a month ago, I told you all about a new photographer in the Tampa Bay, FL area, Georgia G. Photography. I have never had any family pictures taken, not even at Walmart, so I was excited when I was contacted by Georgia G. Photography to get have a photo session done with my family!  We had so much fun getting these pictures done…even with 2 little ones who couldn’t stop fidgeting. ;-)  Definitely an experience of a lifetime!

If you are looking for a Tampa Photographer to get family pictures done, make sure you check her out! We had a great time having pictures taken, and for my family, it was a once in a lifetime opportunity. Georgia was great, timely, and did a fantastic job!  Georgia was fabulous with my 4 kids…especially with my 2 little ones that had a more than difficult time holding still for pictures. We now have some wonderful pictures to catch some great memories of this stage in our family’s life!

Here are a few of my favorite pictures of my family…

HalloweenCostumes.com Review & Giveaway!

by Kimberly on October 4, 2012

HalloweenCostumes.com Review & Giveaway

HalloweenCostumes.com Review and Giveaway

HalloweenCostumes.com Review & Giveaway!

Can you all believe Halloween is only a few weeks away?!  Unbelievable!  If you haven’t decided on what costumes you or your kids will be wearing this year, you will want to head over and check out HalloweenCostumes.com!

I was thrilled when HalloweenCostumes.com contacted me to review their costumes!  I decided to focus on the ‘Teen” selection, as that can be a difficult item for parents and kids to agree on, and really hard to find great costumes for teens/pre-teens in the stores.  It seems like most costumes are geared more towards younger children or adults, and somehow the teenagers get left out, or have very few choices!

HalloweenCostumes.com has an AMAZING selection of costumes for all ages, of course, but an entire section dedicated to teens!!! How cool is that?!!

My 13 year old daughter, Mikaela, got to select a costume for this review, since the last 2 years she stuck being a pirate due to that being the only choice available in stores for her.  We spent a good hour going through pages of really great costumes.  She went back and forth between several, but ultimately settled on this adorable Snow White Teen Costume!  When Mikaela was little, everyone called her Snow White because of her dark hair and pink lips.  So, Snow White is was!  This is a Great Quality Costume!  I am really impressed with the quality of it, so was my husband…and of course Mikaela loves it!   So many costumes are chintzy…kind of cheap and poorly put together!  This HalloweenCostumes.com Snow White Teen Costume is amazing!  You know how things often look better in the pictures than they really are in person..this one is just as great in reality as in the picture!

Snow White Halloween Costume

So, while you’re thinking about Halloween Costumes, I really encourage you to head over and check out their Halloween Costumes.  They have everything you could imagine from infant through adult!

 ~ GIVEAWAY ~

SO…How about a giveaway?   The wonderful folks over at HalloweenCostumes.com are giving away 1 costume of choice, valued at $45 or less!  How wonderful is that??!!!

Children's DVD Set Review & Giveaway

Children’s DVD Set Review & Giveaway from NCircle Entertainment

Any of you with young children, like I have, are always looking for entertainment for your kids.  I try and balance my children with active, creative, learning, and ‘quiet’ time activities.   The wonderful folks over at NCircle Entertainment sent me a pack of 4 great Children’s DVDs to review, and I have to say my kids were thrilled.

This Pack included the 4 following DVDs: Dino Dan, Noodle and Doodle ‘Noodly Things to Do’, Word World To the Rescue, and The Gruffalo’s Child.

Dino Dan  is a great DVD where your children get to follow the adventures of  Dan Henderson, a paleontologist-in-training,  as he imagines dinosaurs into the real world!  Any child that loves dinosaurs will love this DVD.

Noodle and Doodle: Noodly Things to Do, is full of fun craft projects and kid-friendly recipes that families can make together. It definitely encourages your child’s sense of creativity.  My 5 year old had us making several of the recipes and doing the craft projects in this video…which we had a blast doing!

WordWorld: To the Rescue  In To the Rescue, is a wonderful DVD…especially for young children that are beginning to learn their letters, letter sounds and how to form words.  WordWorld, is just that…a world of animals and objects made from words.  It had my children, ages 5 and 3, saying letters and starting to form words!  This DVD is about Duck and Fly learn how to be firefighters just like their friend, Firefighter Frog.  My kiddos learned  all about fire safety with their WordWorld buddies, as well as learning more about their alphabet and words!  GREAT Educational and fun DVD!

The Gruffalo’s Child is a WONDERFUL DVD!  I was a little worried that it would be scary for my little ones, but it was not at all.  They LOVED it!   The Gruffalo tells his child an extraordinary story of “The Big Bad Mouse,” warning her never to go in the woods alone because there is a terrible creature lurking there.  Waiting until her father falls asleep, The Gruffalo’s Child sneaks out into the deep dark woods to see The Big Bad Mouse for herself.  Along the way she runs into a snake, an owl, and a fox and discovers that while they have similar features to The Big Bad Mouse, they are, in fact, not him.  Just as she is about to give up her search, she stumbles upon a tiny mouse. Cautious of her, the mouse listens to what The Gruffalo’s Child is looking for, and then decides to reveal his big bad secret!  It’s a fabulous, entertaining Children’s DVD, that I know you’re children will love too!

All of these great DVD’s are available over at www.NCircleEntertainment.com!

The Children’s DVD Set Giveaway: 

So, How about a Giveaway!  The great folks over at NCircle Entertainment have offered  to giveaway one of this 4 pack DVD Set to one lucky reader!!  How awesome is that?!!!

One Step Ahead Bounce-A-Round Review & Giveaway

by Kimberly on September 21, 2012

One Stap Ahead Bounce-A-Round Review & Giveaway

One Step Ahead Bounce-A-Round Review & Giveaway

Any of you with kids, especially with young kids, know that finding a way to help them get all of their extra energy out can sometimes be a challenge. The wonderful folks over at One Step Ahead sent me their Bounce-A-Round Bouncer to review…it couldn’t have come at a more perfect time. I am located in Florida, where the summer heat seems to last about 8 months out of the year. It very difficult to play outside for long in the heat besides that I can’t stand the heat. I won’t venture outside until the winter…so this Bounce-A-Round was perfect for indoor play as an Inside Energy Buster! However if you’re up north in Cold weather and have snow during the winter…then this will be perfect for indoor play for you too!

One Step Ahead Bounce-A-Round Review & Giveaway

My two younger children, ages 2 and 5 LOVED this One Step Ahead Bounce-A-Round (as you can see in the picture below)! It was super easy to set up. (We had it up in about 10 minutes) My kids jumped for hours!!! They also had fun just sitting, rolling around and being silly in the Bounce-A-Round, which has transparent sturdy side walls that made it easy for me to keep an eye on them.  This is a sturdy Bounce-A-Round that I’m sure will be something used for quite a while in our home!

This One Step Ahead Bounce-A-Round was a HUGE hit in our house. I have actually looked at some ‘bouncy’ type fun play for my kids and everything I found was priced $130+, so I was never able to get it. This Bounce-A-Round Bouncer is priced at $99.95 which is a great price! I just checked online and right now it’s on sale for only $79.95!! I have no idea how long it will be on sale at that price, but if you’re interested, you should grab it now while you can!  My kids play in this several times a day, actually every opportunity they get, they are in there..which totally thrills me!  It means a good night rest, which means happy kids and parents!

One Step Ahead Bounce-A-Round Review & Giveaway

There are a few more details about this that you might like to know about, so I’ve put the details below.

  • This is a OneStepAhead exclusive! Our in-house Design Team invests thought and care into every last detail, to bring you high-quality products you can’t find anywhere else.
  • We redesigned our bouncer enclosure to feature tough, vertical I-beams (which provide greater stability than the horizontal rings found on many bouncers)
  • Three large valves allow for quick filling and deflation; to deflate, depress the stopper. With this valve design, air can’t seep out or escape during inflation.
  • Generously-sized porthole opening allows kids to get in and out easily and safely
  • We’re including a double action hand pump to help you keep your bouncer properly inflated. Even if you use an electric pump to fill it up, you can “top off” with the hand pump for added firmness.
  • Jumping area inflated is 46″L x 48″W, walls inflated is 32″ – 38″H. Base inflated is 66″L x 77″W.

The Bounce-A-Round Giveaway

Easy Canvas Prints Review & Giveaway

by Kimberly on September 10, 2012

Easy Canvas Prints Review & Giveaway

Easy Canvas Prints Review & Giveaway

Christmas is only 4 1/2 months away, which means it’s time to start working on your list, and as a Savvy Couponer, it also means starting early when you find a deal to cross those gifts off your list. One of the best gifts I’ve found is personalized items….especially for family.

I was given the opportunity to review an 8×10 Photo Canvas from Easy Canvas Prints. I was thrilled…I have never ordered a photo canvas, so I was interested to see how it would turn out. I ended up getting a photo Canvas of our 2 year old daughter. Time passes so quickly and I really wanted to have something special to hold on to that would capture this 2 year old phase of her life.

The process of actually ordering the photo canvas, uploading the picture and selecting the type of wrap I wanted was super easy. I was done in just a few minutes. Easy Canvas Prints kept me informed via e-mail of what part of the process my canvas was in. Once it was completed and shipped they e-mailed me that too, to let me know, which I really appreciated as I was excited to see it.

I was happy with the quality of the canvas photo print. It truly did capture my precious little girl…and it’s on a canvas that will stand the test of time. My husband really loved it and melted when he saw her big blue eyes and blonde curls captured and displayed on this beautiful canvas.  I think we’ll be ordering more of these…we have 3 other children that we want to have canvas prints of. :-)

Needless to say, if you’re looking to get a Canvas Photo print as a Christmas gift for one of your family members, I would recommend checking out Easy Canvas Prints.  The entire process takes a few weeks, so this isn’t a gift you can grab at the last minute.  You need to plan ahead…so while you’re thinking about it, head over and check out the pricing and products available!

Easy Canvas Prints

They also have a few sister companies that offer some really nice products if you have a business you want to promote. Make sure you check those products below too!
