With Spring comes the thoughts of swimwear, one of the most dreaded items to shop for. I honestly never minded this yearly "task" until I had kids. Now, after 3 kids I have a little stomach pooch that lingers, and I surely don't make it to the tanning bed...ever. So my white body that has some imperfections, don't we all, needs some help when it comes to finding the ideal swimsuit. I also lean more on the modest side of clothing, so I'm not all about a two piece or something that is too low cut. Finding these requirements in a suit can be a challenge. Thankfully I was introduced to the company Albion Fit early last year, and last summer I had the opportunity to try out their swimwear, you can read the review here.
I was really excited to have the chance to receive another suit from Albion Fit for the upcoming season. After spending some time browsing their suits, I finally landed on the Criss Cross Suit in black. This suit sells for $108 and it appealed to me greatly for many reasons.
- modest neckline
- wide supportive straps
- strategic ruching to slim the waist
This suit is great, it is so comfortable and I feel fabulous while wearing it. I'm not worried that I'm showing too much skin and I feel confident about the way my body looks in it.
Don't worry, if you're a little more daring than I am Albion has some Fab two piece suits! They honestly have a suit that will fit any style. This year, Albion Fit has also came out with a small girls line. They are too cute.
One of you will win a $50 credit to use on any item from Albion Fit you'd like. Please fill out the entry form below for your chance to win. This giveaway ends on Wednesday 4/30, Good Luck.

Ladies, I'll be honest..I'm not much of an "exerciser". I have gone through stages of life where I have been extremely active; I played basketball in high school and as an adult I've gone through times of being consistent at working out everyday! However, now with 3 kiddos and a busy lifestyle the extent of my workouts include chasing my kids and joining them for games on the Kinect.
While I don't exercise by going to the gym, or running everyday I still understand and appreciate the need & want for comfortable and stylish active wear.
Since the year 2000, Yogi has been making a trail in the yoga community on the idea & inspiration that anything is achievable with a positive attitude. They offer a variety of active and casual wear for the every day woman.
As a stay at home momma, I have shared with you before my desire to be comfortable but also presentable during my days. You never know when someone might just pop in for a visit, or when you'll need to rush out the door to run some errands. I was really excited to browse the Yogi website and see that they have some adorable pieces that are perfect for Spring!
My apparel was rather wrinkled upon arrival, but just a few minutes in my dryer on wrinkle release fixed that!
Nothing says Spring to me, quite like a nice pair of white pants. I know, I know...3 young kids and white?? Hey, what can I say; I like to live on the edge ;-) I fell in love with the Yogi Rollover Linen Pant ($78) in white as soon as I saw them on their website. These pants give you freedom to move and stretch, without having a pant that is tight fitting.
I love that these pants aren't "form fitting" , they won't show all my problem areas but they also aren't frumpy. These linen pants aren't only extremely comfortable, but they are flattering. The waist band can also be adjusted to wear at the height that is most comfortable for you, which I think is fabulous! Let's be real ladies, there are times of the month where pants are more comfortable with a high waist and other days we want them low. Having a pair of pants that you can wear either way is priceless. I went with a size small, and probably could have gone with a medium. So, it seems they run a tad small.
To pair with these pants, I received the Raglan Sleeve Lace Top ($42) in papaya. This shirt is so cute. This can be worn to workout in, but its also an adorable tee for on the go. The lace offers such a feminine touch , but the loose fit is so comfy you'll want to wear this top often!
You can purchase either of these items, or a variety of many more directly on the Yogi website. One of you will win your choice of either the Raglan Sleeve Lace Top or the Rollover Linen Pants. This giveaway will end on Thursday 5/1. Please fill out the entry form below for your chance to win, Good Luck.

The change in seasons is a great reason for me to go shopping for my family. I really love finding great new fashions , especially when it comes to the kiddos.
Nui Organics is a company that I was recently introduced to. Nui Organics, which means "Big" or "Important" organics wants to offer a clean start for your little people. They use only 100% organic merino wools and cottons. This means no harsh chemicals for your child or the planet.
Nui Organics just released their 2014 Spring Line, and we received a few outfits that we have just fallen in love with! Over the next few weeks I will be sharing a review on each outfit with all of you, and when the last review is up you will also have the chance to win a $50 credit to use on some adorable clothing for your little one.
The first outfit we received for Sweet Pea, is the adorable Charlie Dress. This dress offers a belted waist and button roll up sleeves & a subtle gathering around the neckline. The Charlie Dress retails for $32-$40 and will fit little girls as young as 3 months up to 6 years. Sweet Pea is 19 months, but this is a dress that I think will still be great come Fall, so I opted for the 2year size in this dress.
I love the feel of this outfit, it is so soft and cozy against Sweet Pea's skin. The Kelp Line print that I chose is so adorable, the hues of green and cream are great for welcoming all the green of Spring; but will also be fab with some brown boots when the weather starts to cool again.
I think my girl looks fab in this dress, I also love that as it starts to get a little small we can pair it with leggings to get more use out of it. You can purchase this dress directly from the Nui Organics website, and take a few minutes to browse their other items. Be sure to check back soon to see our next outfit review from Nui, it will be something for the boys ;-)

Shoes....I'm a tad obsessed, I firmly believe that a pair of shoes can make or break any outfit. The right pair of shoes can also boost your confidence, which always brings out the beauty in a girl. When I was a little younger I didn't care too much about the comfort of a shoe, I just wanted style. Now that I am in my 30's I want a fab shoe that is also incredibly comfortable.
White Mountain Shoes started in 1979 with one mission: to produce stylish, quality footwear at a great value. Today they have expanded and own 3 shoe brands:
I took some time browsing all three of these sites to find the perfect shoe for Spring. The decision was hard, because there are so many adorable options!!
I finally chose the Satire Gold Glitter Wedge ($69.00) in size 8. This is my standard shoe size and it fits very true to size. This wedge is cute to boot! I showed them to Hubs and he said "Babe, awesome date night shoe" then he saw the cork wedge and said "or for everyday!" ha ha, I adore the fact that my lovey has learned how my mind works. Those were my exact thoughts when I saw the Satire Wedge, the eye catching glitter is perfect for adding some drama to any outfit & the cork heel keeps you casual if you want to toss on some jeans or leggings.
This shoe not only is absolutely fab, it is so comfortable. When I first put it on I was absolutely amazed at just how much I loved them. The shoe has great cushioning on the inside, the strap did rub the top of my foot a little at first, but after some wear it feels much better.
I've worn my wedges a few times now, out on a date night and to visit family. The options for this shoe are endless, I love the way it can change any look. I also love that my feet aren't killing me after a few hours (I haven't worn them for more than 3 hours at a time yet). I even wore them around the house when I was first trying to loosen that top strap up, I wore them while vacuuming and doing other random household duties and they were just so easy to move in. These have easily become one of my favorite shoes! If you're looking to make a statement this is the shoe for you.
White Mountain has so many great shoes and they can easily be purchased directly from their website. One of you will win one pair of shoes of your choice, please fill out the entry form below for your chance to win. This giveaway will end on Monday 4/28, Good Luck!
