Diono Radian RXT Giveaway!

diono radian giveawayWith the chilly temperatures outside, most of us are bundled into our winter clothes and snow gear to stay warm. If you have kids, it’s pretty likely that at some time or another you’ve overdressed them to the point where they can’t move. Unfortunately, even with the good intentions of keeping our little ones safe, we might be putting them in more danger by combining winter outerwear and car seats. Ruth from Viva Veltoro has all the information you need from Allana Pinkerton, Certified Child Passenger Safety Instructor and Global Safety Advocate for Diono, to educate yourself about the dangers of your children wearing puffy coats while in their car seats. Make sure you check out her post for a full list of Do’s and Don’ts when it comes to winter car seat safety.

Diono wants your little ones to be the safest they can be,
so they’re giving one lucky person a Diono Radian RXT Convertible + Booster Car Seat!

See “The Choice” in Theaters February 5, 2016 {Giveaway!}

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Review Wire Media for Lionsgate. I received information to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.The Choice Movie Image 1

Looking for the perfect romantic movie to share with your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day?  If so, you’re not going to want to miss The Choice in theaters this Friday, February 5, 2016!TheChoice_poster

Starring Benjamin Walker as Travis Parker – the ultimate ladies man – and Teresa Palmer as Gabby Holland – a headstrong medical student – The Choice is the perfect romantic drama for Valentines Day.  This book turned feature film follows a couple who couldn’t be more different but fall in love during their first meeting.  Each new avenue and path leading to a new choice to be made.  The Choice will keep you hooked as you follow the journey of the heart.  The Choice is destined to be a romantic classic, like both The Notebook and Safe Haven.The Choice Movie Image 2

More about the film:

When feisty medical student Gabby Holland moves in next door to perennial ladies’ man Travis Shaw, they embark on a surprising romantic journey neither imagined possible. Travis has always believed a serious relationship would cramp his easygoing lifestyle, while Gabby is preparing to settle down with her long-term boyfriend—until an irresistible attraction between the unlikely couple upends both of their well-planned lives. Spanning a decade and tracing the evolution of a love affair that is ultimately tested by life’s most defining events, this story features a memorable ensemble of friends and family in Sparks’s beloved North Carolina setting, culminating with the question that every couple must ask themselves: how far would you go to keep the hope of love alive?


In celebration of this romantic premiere, I’m giving one lucky winner a swag bag filled with The Choice goodies, including  $25 Visa eGift Card (sent by email), The Choice Tie-In Movie Book, Sea-Shell Wind-chimes, and The Choice Bookmark!  Enter using the rafflecopter form below and it could be yours!  Good luck everyone!

Baby Delight Snuggle Nest Surround XL Giveaway!

Snuggle Nest Surround GiveawayWelcome to the Snuggle Nest Surround XL from Baby Delight Giveaway,
hosted by Thrifty Nifty Mommy and Viva Veltoro

The New Snuggle Nest Surround XL is designed to offer a greater sense of security for newborns when co-sleeping with parents. The new extended length and slightly narrowed foot area offers a comfortable space for your baby, and a sleeker profile in the adult bed.

The Snuggle Nest Surround XL is comprised of two rigid, vented wall units at each end, which help to block adult bedding and create an exclusive sleeping area for baby. Two flexible side panels built into the soft quilted cover, are filled with thick structural mesh, and allow easy and comfortable access to baby, while forming an air barrier from adult bodies and bedding. Also included are a firm mattress with a wraparound sheet and optional 1.5” incline wedge. By placing the Snuggle Nest against the headboard of the adult bed, infants are more removed from the “rollover zone’ and bedding.

For additional comfort and soothing, a Sound & Light unit is included, featuring music and familiar womb sounds, as well as a soft light for nighttime checks on baby. The Snuggle Nest folds quickly and compactly for handy portability for parents on the go. Not for use in cribs or bassinets.
