Fab Kids Subscription June

The SUMMER is officially Here!!!! We have been busy with cookouts, party's, weddings, mini weekend getaways, and will soon be hitting up the beach house and other annual summer festivities! Sophia's outfits are the last thing on my mind when I am trying to pack up the car, situating the dogs and making sure she Sophia is napped/fed before we hit the road! I want her to look adorable, always, but that is easier said than done when you have to coordinate outfits and see what looks good together! That's why I absolutely LOVE FabKids! Fab Kids makes it is so easy to get her dressed in the morning and look super cute too!!  We are always ecstatic to do reviews for this fabulous company!

Blushing Paper

So My wedding happened...then I disappeared!!! Ha! It was everything I could have dreamed of and then some!! But after it was over it took awhile for all the excitement to die down. I was of course a sucker for details during the whole wedding process and one of my favorites was a Hashtag sign that was made by Blushing Paper!!!

I'm still waiting for professional pictures to come back (waiting is torture haha) But I will update when they come in! We put them in rustic frames!
 
Here is a bit more about this fabulous company!!
 
The Evolution of Blushing Paper
                           
"The Blushing Paper Store evolved from my love of crafting, design, and party planning. I have to admit that I am the repeat brides maid, and well...never the bride. As the brides maid, my imagination ran wild with possibilities when it came to the decor. The big day should be about being in the moment with the one you love, not worrying about the details too much but the beauty IS WITHIN THE D E T A I L S.

Leave the worry up to The Blushing Paper to get all our lovely goods to make your wedding, wall decor, and gifts as unique, personable, and special as possible. I hope you will find all that you need here. Let's make both our dreams come true!"

XOXO,
Jen
Well Jen thank you for being truly amazing and artistic!!! You put that magical touch on my wedding and I am so grateful!

 
Not only is Blushing Paper the most dreamy and magical place for wedding goods but the owner is  also a fine art wedding photographer and her website is www.jennysoi.com Go Check it out!!!! Amazing is an understatement!! This Girl ROCKS!!!

Book Review "Why is Dad So Mad" By Seth Kastle

I have done hundreds of reviews and none of them have struck me on a more personal level than the book "Why is Dad So Mad" written by Seth Kastle. I come from a strong military family stemming way back. My brother and I both Navy Brats and born in Navy Hospitals. We know the sacrifice that goes into serving, protecting and honoring your country!

The Arrival:  I waited eagerly as the mailman pulled into our quiet neighborhood the day I knew the book would arrive. My nerves on end knowing that this book was written because Seth Kastle's life was changed, knowing that he needed to do this for his family, knowing that I was safely reading it in my home because of him, because of all the brave men and woman willing to sacrifice their lives to protect us. I carefully read each page as my wiggly jumping toddler pointed at the pages.... "HOT" she says as we get to the page with the lion that has a fire in his chest. Yes, Sophia "HOT" that Daddy has a fire in his heart, he has that fire there because he was away protecting our country. She giggles and I feel a warmth of her innocence, knowing she nor I could ever fully comprehend what Seth Kastle, a now retired Company First Sergeant has endured. Or what the countless others have...yet we are so very grateful for this book. It actually amazes me that there are not these type of resources for families. PTSD is very real, it is not spoken about enough. Fathers, Mothers, children, friends and other family members struggle.  This book will help explain that feeling to young children in a way they can understand!
This has become one of Sophia's favorite books...she loves to look at all the pictures!

Seth Kastle is the Author of the children’s book Why is Dad So Mad? and the upcoming Why is Mom So Mad?.  Both of these books were written in order to assist military families who are struggling with PTSD.

Seth served 16 years in the Army Reserve, and retired as a Company First Sergeant.  He was deployed in January 2002 to Qatar, and then to Afghanistan for a total of eight months.  He was then deployed to Iraq in January 2003 until April 2004.  He has been married for nearly ten years now to his wife Julia, and has two daughters; Raegan and Kennedy.  He wrote the book Why is Dad So Mad? to try to help his children understand why he is the way he is now.  The overriding purpose of these books is to let children of service members know that no matter what, their parents love them more than anything, despite the challenges that are faced.  Seth resides in Kansas where he is a Professor of Leadership Studies at Fort Hays State University. More information on Seth and these books can be found at www.kastlebooks.com.


About Seth Kastle, "Through my 16 years in the Army Reserve I served in many capacities culminating in my role as a Company First Sergeant.  I was deployed in January 2002 to Qatar, and then to Afghanistan for a total of eight months.  I was then deployed to Iraq in January 2003 until April 2004.  I have been married for nearly ten years now to my wonderful wife Julia, and we have two daughters; Raegan and Kennedy.  The topic of dealing with PTSD as a parent is something that is very close to my heart.  I have struggled with PTSD for ten years now, my daughters are young so who I am now is all they know.  I wrote the book Why is Dad So Mad? to try to help them understand why I am the way I am now.  This is not who I used to be, but it is who I am now; this is reality.  More than anything I want my daughters as well as the children of other services members to know that no matter what we, as fathers love them more than anything.  Things may not always be picture perfect , but as parents we will always be there for our kids."
Seth Kastle

He truly is a stand up guy, a real American Hero! Proudly continuing to honor his family all the while reaching out and helping thousands others! Thank you Seth for this amazing heartfelt book. It will be cherished in our home and Sophia loves that you autographed it for her.

I am strongly encouraging you all to go out and get a copy, you can purchase them HERE You can also buy in bulk, talk to your local bookstores, urge them to get this book on their shelves!!  

Coming Soon, Seth Kastle's second book "Why is Mom so Mad?"

"To say the resources are limited for fathers who struggle with PTSD is an understatement. However, there is NOTHING that I have found that exists for mothers with combat related PTSD.  We have already started on the follow up book Why is Mom So Mad.  This book was written in consultation with women combat veterans who are mothers, and struggle with PTSD." Kastle

Brush Naked Review

We are Head over Heels For BRUSH NAKED!!!

A better choice for you and for the earth.

FREE Shipping to US and Canada
Our toothbrushes are 100% bamboo - not just the handle but the bristles are wood fibres too. Not all toothbrushes are created to be earth-friendly. Most are plastic which takes 10,000 years to decompose. Millions of plastic toothbrushes end up in landfills every year.

The difference is in the details

Even so-called “eco friendly” toothbrushes often use nylon bristles which have to be plucked out before disposal. brush*naked is different. We’ve gone back to our roots. Everything is created by nature, from the packaging to the product itself. We just assemble. Switching to brush*naked is such a small choice, but considering you’ll use 300 toothbrushes over your life time, you’ll feel good knowing that your environmental footprint for cleaning your teeth is nearly zero.


About Brush Naked,

"The idea for the Brush Naked Bamboo Toothbrush Company was born in a hotel room. I had finished brushing my teeth and looked at my toothbrush. It had seen better days so I threw it in the garbage can. As it hit the bottom of the can I thought to myself, "What a waste! There has to be a better way to prevent hundreds of millions of non-recyclable plastic toothbrushes ending up in landfills every year." I did some research online and found the options for environmentally friendly toothbrushes to be extremely limited. The Brush Naked Bamboo Toothbrush Company was born."
 You can purchases brush-naked toothbrushes of adults and kids! Sophia is currently obsessed with brushing her teeth. She is also leaning her colors so the handles always make a fun teachable moment in the morning and at night!!
Well we are SOLD!!!! We are completely in LOVE with our Brush Naked toothbrushes and we will never go back to plastic! The quality of these toothbrushes is like no other! They really are one of a kind!! You really have to try these brushes out for yourself!!!  And I can't lie it feels REALLY good knowing every time I put that toothbrush in my mouth I am doing my part to help the environment! I want to leave my daughter with a better earth then it is now...That will only happen if we all take a stand and do our part! It is so worth it!

Don't forget to check them out on Facebook HERE You can Purchase Your Toothbrushes over at Brush Naked HERE

They are So awesome over at Brush Naked that they are even giving all my readers a discount code!!!!! Just enter 'sarah10off' and you will get 10% off your order (plus free shipping) until June 30th!!!!!!!!! Thank You Brush Naked, You guys ROCK!!!

I received these products free for review purposes but all opinions are 100% honest.

Bowie X James

BOWIE X JAMES

Sophia & I are totally LOVING the amazing swim line by BOWIE X JAMES!!!!!

I was so excited to review for this super rad company! Sophia received the Silver Lining Bikini and we seriously cant get enough! The quality is amazing...not to mention I'm a sucker for packaging and it came in the most adorable leopard tissued hand stamped brown bag!
 
Description- Silver Lining Bikini $68.00
* Printed adjustable triangle top and reversible tie side bikini bottom
* Wild leopard print is sweetened with bright floral pops of color
* Tie side bottoms reverse from print to solid black
* Shell: 82% Poly 18% Spandex
* Lining: 100% Poly
 
  A little background from the peeps over at Bowie X James, "BOWIE X JAMES was started by three moms who wanted to create and design swimwear that reflected their daughter's unique, stylish and caring personalities. We are all native Southern Californians with strong roots in the beach lifestyle and wanted our babes to be outfitted as we would outfit ourselves. BOWIE X JAMES bikinis are meant to be mixed but not to match, and many of our styles have reversible bottoms for maximum usage. Our designs are comfy, clean and modern and the tie side bikini bottoms facilitate a spot on fit. Each season our designs are influenced by nature and the world around us. In turn we donate a portion of our proceeds to a selected charity.  We want to educate our daughters on the importance of giving back and inspire them to make a difference in the world...all while looking adorable. BOWIE X JAMES is located in Encinitas, California and is designed for little babes, ages 2 - 12. We hope you love the collection and stay tuned for upcoming categories of beachwear."


Seriously LOVE that this line was started by three mommas You Gals ROCK!!!!! I seriously have been stumped when it came to Sophia's bathsuit this year! I have been in and out of every store from Gap, Janie & Jack even Target! When I tell you I have searched high and low and came up empty handed, I really came up empty handed! Well besides the cart full of non essentials that I always seem to leave Target with! I'm So Excited for Sophia's new Bathing Suit from Bowie X James, not only is the print adorable but it is also reversible. Sophia will most definitely be rocking the all black too, of course dressed up with her Bowie X James shades and a rocking head wrap!

Sophia & I will be hitting up the beach in the coming weeks....when this New England weather heats up! Check back for Beach Pictures and Hashtag your babes wearing #BOWIEJAMES
