{Audrey’s Bear} : Personalized Swaddle Blanket

dsc_0445  *This is a sponsored post by Audrey’s Bear. All opinions are my own.

When I found out I was expecting another girl, I was elated to say the least! Being blessed with the opportunity to pull out all those tubs of adorable, frilly clothes again, made me want to burst at the seams! I was just that excited!

There was one thing weighing on my mind… Individuality.

As silly as it may sound, I didn’t want baby girl #2 to feel she was constantly living in her big sisters shadow. Only being given what her sister once used. Instead, I wanted her to know and feel we saw her as an individual right from the beginning.

So, I began my search for a few practical and reasonably priced baby items that she would be able to call her own.

When I learned I would have the opportunity to collaborate with this company I was beyond excited! Audrey’s Bear gifted my newborn babe one of their beautiful, personalized swaddle blankets.

Audrey’s Bear gives customers an array of customizable options. Once I chose my design (Multicolored Arrows), I was literally able to custom every. single. aspect. Something I have yet to find anywhere else!  I was able to select the color of the swaddle, two different colors for her name, the font style, and a different color for each of the four arrows. The company then sends a proof via email for you to approve before your swaddle is printed. This company has excellent customer service and they make the process so easy!

Magical Sleeping Powers!

I cannot get enough of this swaddle! Seriously, I wish I had a dozen of these! Audrey’s Bear designed this light-weight, soft, stretchy fabric with baby’s in mind! The first time I used it, she was tired and cranky. I thought I would never get her to sleep. Then I remembered the swaddle and thought, why not!? So I wrapped up my sweet babe and WALA! She fell fast asleep! So, now I use it all the time and I don’t leave home without it!

I love how this is not only a great, practical baby item for parents to purchase, but also a lovely keepsake!

Giving Back

I love working with companies that give back and Audrey’s Bear is no exception! They created a program called, {swaddle4swaddle}. Each time a customer purchases one of their lovely swaddles they will donate one to a baby in either the NICU or Pediatric Cancer Center. As a mom, it warms my heart to see companies like Audrey’s Bear giving back in order to make someones day a little brighter!

What are your go-to keepsake items for baby? Do you have a few for each child, showcasing their individuality?

Love and LulaRoe

I first heard about LulaRoe last summer during a local moms morning out event. The pop-up shop was buzzing with activity and items were flying off the table. Women of all ages, shapes, and sizes were armed with their purchases. Almost giddy with happiness. So of course, I had to check it out.

I must admit the colorful clothing was intriguing. The feel of the soft material was unlike anything I had ever felt. Unfortunately, I couldn’t seem to talk myself into trying anything on for fear I would want to make a purchase. Like so many other mothers, we rarely think of ourselves. I just didn’t feel comfortable with the idea of purchasing something for me. As the months went by, I began noticing my newsfeed buzzing with talk of LulaRoe.

So, a few weeks ago I decided to attend a LulaRoe party. I didn’t really have any expectations. My only thought was, maybe I could exchange my baggy jeans and ill fitted t-shirts for a pair of nicely fitted leggings and a cute top. Something easy and quick to throw on, while looking put together. So, I spent a few hours to myself, browsing and trying things on.

My thoughts – LulaRoe far exceeded my expectations! I feel confident and beautiful, while looking great! I have lived in my solid black leggings for the past week. Leggings and me! Who would have thought?! I love the feel and fit! They are so comfortable that I am not rushing to throw on a pair of pajama pants the second I get home. The clothing is easy to throw on, especially when trying to rush out the door with my daughter. I love that LulaRoe feels and fits beautifully for all body types.

When was the last time you did something for yourself? Consider changing out those jeans for a pair of soft and comfortable leggings!
