Wordless Wednesday

12:36 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma






We took these at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle exactly three years ago. These are my favorite animals to see when we go there. I love the Peacock, it just wanders around amidst the crowd. Oscar thought that is was awesome! Me too.

Dress Up Your Kiddos with a Gift Certificate to Boutiki Hut!

7:20 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma


Lately I have been on the hunt for adorable onesies. I love cute sayings and designs that will set my son apart from all the rest when he wears them. Especially when I can find them at an awesome price! Boutiki Hut on Etsy designs and creates original onesies that are truly unique and works of art in their own right. You can be sure that when you purchase a onesie from Boutiki Hut that you will be receiving a one of a kind design that will have everyone wondering just where you picked up such a cool onesie. Below are some of my favorites.

This onesie is from the Rock and Roll collection.




This one is from the Funny Onesies Collection.


This hot onesie is from the category consisting of items on Sale.



One of my favorite aspects about Boutiki Hut's appliques is that they are hand cut from different types of fabrics. The "I scream" onesie is one of the designs that used vintage fabrics for the applique. I think that using vintage fabrics is a brilliant idea and makes for an original piece that will definitely ensure that onesie a spot in baby's keepsake box.

Boutiki Hut also applies their original designs to other childrens clothing and shoes for a look that will be sure to delight your little ones. In addition to clothing Boutiki Hut also creates beautiful wall art. The wall art is a smattering of eclectic style with handrawn art, vintage childrens books, buttons, etc... to make each hanging work of art special and unique. I have not seen this eye-catching style used by anyone else and it will really brighten up any children's bedroom or playroom. Below is one of my favorites.



Right now Boutiki Hut is trying to move out all of their decorated clothing items and the prices are rock bottom! Now's your chance to get all this great stuff at amazing prices. But don't worry they also have a sister shop on Etsy, Erin Jade, where you can find more great clothing and accessories.

All of the items that Boutiki Hut offers would be great for gift giving to any child. To see everything that they have to offer you will have to go visit their Etsy shop because there are just simply too many different styles, techniques and designs to mention them all here in this post.


Boutiki Hut is offering one lucky Pretty Pink Momma reader a $15 gift certificate and free shipping on their order!

Here's How to Win: Visit Boutiki Hut and comment back on this post what you would spend your $15 gift certificate on. This giveaway is open to all.

Mother's Day Beautiful Chocolate Gift Giveaway

6:08 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma

As many moms out there do, I love chocolate! On the days that the boys have given me a run for my money there is nothing greater than the satisfaction of yummy chocolate to calm my nerves. Especially if its just for me and I don't have to share. You know, if I get caught eating some I know what question is coming next, "Mommy, what are you eating? Can I have some?". This is a request I can't ignore, and I will always give in. Probably because I feel like a bad mommy if I eat candy without sharing it with my babies. Now that Mother's Day is right around the corner I won't have to feel my normal guilt, cause baby, I have EARNED that chocolate! For all of those mommies out there that love a little divine indulgence once in awhile, this beautiful Mother's Day Chocolate gift is up for grabs from Michelle's This and That Etsy Shop.

This gorgeous chocolate gift, would retail for $30 plus $10 for shipping, comes complete with a silver serving tray. Included in the gift are
1- 1/4 lb beautiful white and dark blue chocolate cameo, 4 coffee stir spoons (milk chocolate & pink), 2 rose lollipops(pink and green), all tied with pink satin ribbon. This listing will be shipped just as pictured.


I think that this is a fantastic idea for a Mother's Day gift. I would love to get something as unique and thoughtful as this. Any mom would be delighted to receive this instead of the same old run of the mill gifts, like plants. I always get plants, maybe people think that I need more because I usually kill them. Don't they know I love chocolate?

Michelle's This and That can make this as a custom gift for you in a wide variety of colors and flavors, whatever mom would love the most. If this particular gift is not your mom's style but you love the idea, you can always convo Michelle and she will be happy to design a custom listing that will bring a smile to your mother's face.

In addition to this Mother's Day gift Michelle's This and That has a huge variety of chocolates for every occassion. This is a one stop chocolate shop! Wedding favors, baby shower favors, whatever you need for any occassion she can design and make it custom for you. My personal favorites are the "adult" chocolates. No, I'm not a perv, well not totally. I just think that these are hilarious and would be a perfect addition to any bachelor/bachelorette party. Not to mention they come with the added bonus of being able to purchase them without anyone seeing how red faced or embarrassed you may be asking for a chocolate penis lollipop!

For a limited time Michelle's This and That is offering a sample of chocolates for FREE! You heard right, FREE! She is so confident that you will love her chocolates that you can order a complimentary sample. Below is a smattering of the samples which are from a combination of different candy categories that Michelle's This and That offer.

In addition to the free samples, Michelle's This and That is also celebrating her first twenty sales by offering 20% off of her next 20 sales! So far, 12 people have taken advantage of this sweet offer. If you hurry you will still be able to take advantage of this great offer while it lasts!

Five Thing Friday #7

8:35 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma


Its Five Thing Friday time again! This is where I like to share five random things about myself or my crazy life with all of you! Hopefully you will get to know me a little bit better. I invite you to play along and share five random things about yourself with me. Just grab the button on my side bar or copy the image from above. Make sure to leave a comment if you play along so that I can go and check out your post!

1. Oscar gave me the hardest time getting dressed this morning. He insisted that I find him a pair of pants or shorts to wear that did not have seams in them. When I told him that his request was completely ridiculous, he preceeded to scream and cry in my face for twenty minutes about how he wasn't going to school because he didn't have anything to wear. Sheesh! What a great morning start!

2. I keep trying to find the time to get my products up on my website, but intstead I am coming up with new products. I would love to be able focus on one thing and not be so scatterbrained about my creative process. I guess that's just not me.

3. I think that I am making cheeseburgers for dinner tonight. That sounds delicious!

4. I sleep only about 4-6 hours per night. Most every night I am interrupted at least evey two or three hours by Emilio. My eyes are starting to look problematic.

5. Rocky Road is my favorite ice cream. I love the nut, marshmellow combo. Mmm. Mmm. Good!


That wraps up my Five Thing Friday! To learn more about little old me you can check out my past Five Thing Friday's.

JDS Gems Earring Giveaway

7:26 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma



I have not really mentioned this before but I love rocks! I think that they are so beautiful. I grew up with a grandparent who was a so called "rock hound" and he used to make me the most beautiful necklaces and rings with rocks that he had polished himself. Believe me, as a young girl I looked forward to every birthday and Christmas in anticipation of what he would make for me. I still have most of them in my jewelry box today, they each hold a special place in my heart. When I ran across my next Etsy feature, JDS Gems, their love of rocks reminded of my own.

JDS Gems designs and creates jewelry using semi-precious gemstones. They pride themselves on their designs that are centered around their unusual and unique selection of beautiful stones. Not only does JDS Gems have one of the largest inventories that I have seen on Etsy, that is only a fraction of what they have available. In addition to the fantastic selection they absolutely love doing custom orders. If you have a special outfit that you are looking to match a lovely pair of earrings with or perhaps a necklace or bracelet, just tell JDS Gems and they can design jewelry made to order that will perfectly match your style, taste and most importantly your outfit! Anything that you see in their shop can be tweaked in any fashion in order to make it the design of your dreams.

With 90 choices for earrings, 60 choices for bracelets and over 50 choices for necklaces believe me when I say that it was extremely difficult for me to choose only a couple of my favorites to show you. Here are only a few of my many favorites from JDS Gems.




The earrings above are hung on silver plated surgical steel fish hook style wires, but gold plated surgical steel or sterling silver can be substituted. (Sterling silver will be an additional $1.50). Any pair of JDS Gems earrings can be converted to clip-on's or posts if you prefer. Most of their necklaces, and all of our bracelets feature strong magnetic clasps. JDS Gems can substitute traditional clasps on any of their pieces. They most definitely mean it when they say that they aim to make a custom piece exactly to your specifications. With so many options available you can truly get something that you will cherish for years to come.

Right now JDS Gems is offering two fantastic promotions for all of its customers. The first is free worldwide shipping through the entire month of April. The second is in celebration of Mother's Day. Between now and Mother's Day, May 10th, buy any item and get a pair of earrings FREE!!! You just have to specify the earrings that you would like in Message to Seller or tell them the color and they can pick a great pair for you! You could get your mom one pair and keep a second for yourself! Or if you are more generous than I am you could give her both.

If you are rockhound like me, and you love the look of gemstones you will definitely want to visit JDS Gems for your next jewelry purchase. They aim to please and love to create beautiful one of a kind pieces of jewelry that their customer will always treasure.

One lucky Pretty Pink Momma reader will choose any pair of $7 earrings of their choice from JDS Gems. Look carefully, there are 85 pairs to choose from!

Here's How to Enter: Go visit JDS Gems and comment back on this post what pair of earrings you would choose if you are chosen as the winner.

A Note to all My Bloggy Friends

8:19 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma


HI blogger buds! I just wanted to let you all know that I will be taking a little break. My website for my business is finally complete on the part of my designer but I need to spend some major time completing products, taking pictures and getting them loaded and ready on the site.

This is great news but unfortunately blogging will have to take a back seat in order to accomplish this task. I still have giveaways and reviews lined up to do but that will probably be it for the next couple of weeks. I will still find the time read my favorite blogs but I may not have the time to comment on all of them. My husband's schedule is not very accomodating, he usually leaves for work at 6:30 and doesn't get back home until about 8:00, which is right around the boys bedtime. Then we eat dinner, usually around 9:00. This means that so much of my time is limited in the evening so I must sacrifice my daytime loves in order to get my site up and running.

Wish me luck! I can't wait to get the site finished so that I can unveil it to all of you! I am so excited to start this new part of my life as a business owner and I am so glad that I get to share it with all of you.

Love Me Baby Boutique Giveaway

2:14 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma



I love all of the super hot baby boutique items being offered these days. Right now one of the hottest trends in baby clothing and accessories is minky or chenile fabrics paired with designer prints to create simply adorable, can't live without, soft bibs, blankets, burp cloths and more. I aspire to be a fantastic seamstress one day, but right now I will have to settle with my simplistic skill set. In order to satisfy my hunger for beautifully hand made boutique baby items I have discovered Love Me Baby Boutique on Etsy.

Love Me Baby Boutique has a wonderful assortment of trendy and chic children's clothes, tutus, bibs, burp cloths, blankets and more. The pattern choices and styles of the clothing created by Love Me Baby Boutique are very stylish and a must have for any sassy little girl. The unique designs are so cute that it makes me wish even more than I usually do that I had a little girl to dress up. Below are a couple of my favorite designs that Love Me Baby Boutique has to offer. All clothing listed by Love Me Baby Boutique is offered in size newborn to 4T.

This super cute combo is fresh for spring and summer. I love the color cooridination and the huge flower on the kimono top. Paired with these matching capris, your little one will look so sweet and stay cool.













I bet that you think that there are two dresses featured above, you are wrong! This is actually an awesome reversable dress. If your little gal gets something on her dress just flip it inside out and voila! A new outfit! This dress has ribbon ties on the shoulders but could also be made with snaps or buttons for a custom fit. I thought that this dress was really a genious idea, especially if you have a little one with a tendency to spill things on her clothes, or like my kids who like to use their clothes as napkins!

I am also really loving the fantastic bibs, burpcloths and blankies that Love Me Baby Boutique has to offer. These would make such great shower gifts for any mom to be. Any mom would love the chic designs and super soft fabric that these boutique quality accessories are made out of. Below are some of my top picks.


This awesome bib is backed with super soft chenile and costs only $8!



Here is an example of one the minky and flannel blankets available for only $30.


What a great gift set! Shown is two burp cloths and one bib in a matching set for only $20.

If you love to dress your children in beautiful clothes and appreciate the quality of a handmade garment Love Me Baby Boutique is the shop for you. From now until April 23rd they are having a promotion to honor the upcoming birth of their son. All purchases made by April 23rd will receive free worldwide shipping and a free gift. Don't miss out on this very special offer! Visit them today for one of a kind, gifts and accessories that will surely be cherished for years to come.

Love Me Baby Boutique is gracioulsly offering one very lucky Pretty Pink Momma reader a $25 gift certificate which will include free shipping on their order.

Mineral Secrets Review

4:10 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma


I don't know about you but I am definitely one of those chicks that won't leave the house without any makeup on. I am just too embarrased to show my face without it. I used to even get all dolled up just to walk my son to the bus stop in the morning. That was until I came to my senses and decided it just wasn't worth the time and energy to get makeup on just to stand at the bus stop with two maybe three other moms that aren't wearing any makeup either. Aside from this one exception, I always wear makeup. With that being said, my very favorite - can't live without makeup is a mineral makeup.

I love mineral makeup! You can put it on in so many different ways. You can blend until you achieve the exact look that you are going for. You can even add water to it to change the consistency and application of it. I love mineral makeup because it is a multi-tasking product, and I am a multi-tasking momma. I was thrilled when Mineral Secrets contacted me and asked me to review their Multi Task Mineral Starter Kit.

The Multi Task Mineral Starter Kit came with two trial sized options from the Ultra Sensitive Loose Mineral Foundation collection, in the shades of Sugar Cookie and Sand. Also included was a trial sized Ultra Sensitive Multi Task eye shadow, in Sunset. This not what I would call a complete intro to mineral makeup but it does work as dabbler. What I mean is that with this set you could not expect to complete your whole face but you can get an idea of how Mineral Secrets works and if you like the feel of it. Plus it also comes with a great Mini Kabuki brush. I love this Kabuki brush, it does not shed like the one I normally use does. For an idea of what to choose to complete your face, not including your eyes, I would go with the 6 Piece Starter Kit at $55.95 for the full effect or the 4 Piece Mineral Starter Kit at $39.95 for the basics.

The Ultra Sensitive Multi Task came in with Sunset as the color option. I really like this soft pink color. When they say multi-task they mean it! I tried it in several ways. The first was as an eye shadow. I did not like it as a stand alone shadow because with my skin tone it just seemed to redish. I did try it mixed with one of my other crushed mineral eye shadows and it blended great. I then tried wetting a lip brush and dipping it into the jar. I applied the minerals directly to my lips. When it was dry a minute later I put on a nice clear gloss. I really liked this idea and how it stayed well on my lips. I never would have thought to use the makeup that way but it really worked! I also tried it as a blush. For me it was hard to tell because I have naturally rosy cheeks and I didn't want to apply too much. It would probably work great for someone with a lighter skin tone than I have. The last thing that I did with the Ultra Sensitive Multi Task was to dip my clear nail polish brush into the jar and apply it to my toes! I loved this idea! I put a nice coat of the polish/mineral combo and it looked great! You can adjust how bright or how muted you want it to come out by adding a little or a lot to the brush.

At the end of the day the makeup held up really well. I was impressed with how it felt and its overall appearance. It was a pretty close match to my skin tone and worked well with my skin. There were no crease lines either, which is always a plus! Mineral Secrets works great with all skin types and is completely free of perfumes, parabens, fillers, dyes, and is never tested on animals.

All in all I think that if you are looking to try out mineral makeup Mineral Secrets is a great option. They have a lot of reasonably priced packages to choose from so you are not spending a ton of money. It does take a bit of time to get used to using mineral makeup but once you get used to it you will be hooked! I will never use anything else. I love all the great brushes for maximum application results too. These brushes are very reasonably priced in comparison to what I have been using.

Not to mention the Mineral Secrets website is easy to check out even if you are not familiar with the makeup. The categories are all on the left side and each has a drop down menu for even easier searching. Once you click on an item you are taken to its page where in the center you will find a description of the product, ingredients and instructions for use. Also on the lower left there are reccomendations for other products on the site that compliment what you are looking at. Did I also mention that if you are a little confused about which tones to pick or what would work best for your skin you have the option to call a toll free number and speak with a licensed esthetician? How fantastic! It is nice to know that if you buy something new and you have never tried it before that Mineral Secrets provides its customers with tons of tools to ensure that you are satisfied with your purchase. Especially with mineral makeup understanding the application is the key.

If you are interested in trying mineral makeup and want to give Mineral Secrets a try go check them out today!

1 Pixie Place Pixie Pin Giveaway

5:34 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma


Even though I don't have any darling girls of my very own, I am so in love with all of the crazy cute boutique style hair clips. I just think that they are so darling! For now I will have to settle with getting my fix when I see my friends daughters or my neice. I have become so fascinated with them that I am really into checking out all the different designs and styles that I can find. My search has recently led me to discover 1 Pixie Place on Etsy.

1 Pixie Place has some of the cutest designs for hair pins. This mom owned Etsy shop knows just what little girls like and designs each piece with her own two little pixies in mind. These boutique clips and snaps, appropriately called Pixie Pins, are so adorable and affordable. The little girl in your life can look dazzling without breaking the bank.

Not only does 1 Pixie Place offer stylish hair pins but they also have pendants, keychains and beaded dragonfly charms that can hang from a necklace, keychain or cell phone strap. All of these items are really simple and cute. These would make great gifts for any girl from small to big. Pictured below is my favorite pendant that 1 Pixie Place offers. All pendants in this shop are only $5 and hang from a 16" silver plated ball chain.

Unfortunately they are being discontinued, but all of these items are discounted for a quick sale. In addition to the all ready low prices 1 Pixie Place is offering a 30% discount on all of the Aloha items upon ordering. Here is an example of some onesies from the Aloha collection:

Five Thing Friday #6

12:00 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma




Its Five Thing Friday time again! This is where I like to share five random things about myself or my crazy life with all of you! Hopefully you will get to know me a little bit better. I invite you to play along and share five random things about yourself with me. Just grab the button on my side bar or copy the image from above. Make sure to leave a comment if you play along so that I can go and check out your post!


1. I like to collect movies stubs. I started doing it as a kid and I just never really stopped. For me I guess that they are a kind of snap shot in time. If I look at the old stubs I remember the occassion, who I went with, how old I was, etc... I have miscellaneous movies stubs all over the place though. I have never streamlined putting them anywhere, maybe one day I will find the time.


2. My new favorite reality show is the Millionaire Matchmaker. I just love how bitchy and honest that Patti, the matchmaker, is with everyone on the show. I wish I could be that direct in my own life but its just not my personality.


3. Yesterday I decided to give myself a bloggy time out. Well, sort of, I can't stay away all day! I was really stressed out and I just needed to chillax. I spent some me time watching a movie and of course catching up on the Millionaire Matchmaker.


4. I hate cleaning bathrooms! The thing I hate most is the shower. I just hate all the weird freakish yoga positions that I need to master just to clean every nook and cranny. So, for the most part I make the hubs do this. That's probably why our shower in our master bath is pretty disgusting. I guess he hates it too!


5. I take blogging way too seriously. Sometimes it feels like a job with all the post commitments and the PR reps emailing all the time. Don't get me wrong, I love doing all those things. It helps keep my mind sharp and not full of mushy kids songs and tv shows. I just wish that there were more hours in the day to feel accomplished in my blog, my kids stuff, the housework and last but certainly not least, a shower!


That wraps up my Five Thing Friday! To learn more about little old me you can check out my past Five Thing Friday's.

Win Your Very Own Easy Bake Oven from Hasbro and Celebrate the Easy Bake 2009 "Baker of the Year"

5:00 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma

I don't think I can even think of a single girl in my lifetime that I have ever known that did not want or have the Easy Bake Oven by Hasbro. I was one of the unfortunate little girls that never got to have one of my very own. Even worse, none of my friends had one either so I never even got the pleasure of trying one out! Yes, its true, I was robbed of one of the best toy experiences known to little girls everywhere. The funny thing is that even though I am a grown woman it still burns me to this day that I didn't have an Easy Bake Oven. I think that this probably rings true with so many others like myself.

No matter what woman you mention it to we all have the same bitterness towards our parents to this day that we did not get our beloved Easy Bake Oven. Those of us who never got an Easy Bake Oven of our own would most certainly purchase one for our daughters. Unless of course you are like me, and you are only blessed with sons. Obviously my sons would love the Easy Bake Oven too, but trying to convince my husband to buy them one is an entirely different story! He freaked out at the hunter green and tan pretend kitchen they got for Christmas last year from my parents. It has sat in the garage so they have limited play time with it - just to ensure that they won't have too much time to spend playing with it. I guess that I just will have to face the facts that they will never get the chance to become the Easy Bake Oven "Baker of the Year".

On April 7, 2009, Hasbro Inc., after beginning the search last summer, announced the seven finalists for the Easy Bake Oven 2009 "Baker of the Year" contest. These talented child bakers are from all around the country and will be flown to Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa in WALT DISNEY WORLD® Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, where they will compete for the title of EASY-BAKE 2009 "Baker of the Year" on May 7, 2009. Contestants entered their favorite original recipes using one or more EASY-BAKE mixes. Entries were submitted online at http://www.easybake.com/ or via mail with a photo featuring their creation, themselves, and their "sous chef." All EASY-BAKE 2009 “Baker of the Year” contest entries were judged based on creative use of ingredients, presentation, ease of preparation, and taste. Each finalist will be assisted in the kitchen throughout the competition by their baking “sous chef" - a parent, grandparent, aunt, or uncle.

During the EASY-BAKE 2009 “Baker of the Year” finals, contestants will once again be judged on creative use of ingredients, presentation, ease of preparation, and taste. The grand prize winning pair in the EASY-BAKE 2009 "Baker of the Year" contest will receive a culinary-inspired trip for four to San Francisco, CA, where the group will visit local food-related sites and attractions. The six runners-up will each receive a $500 VISA gift card and a one-year supply of EASY-BAKE Brand mixes. All finalists will have their recipe and a photo of their creation appear on the EASY-BAKE website.

I am so pleased to announce that one of the seven finalists is 10 year old MaCall Prengel, from my hometown, Olympia, WA! How cool is that! She and her "sous chef" (mom Danelle), came up with the "S'mores Snacks/Chocolaty Peanut Butter," two exceptional treats rolled into one. The combination of sticky marshmallow, creamy chocolate and gooey peanut butter will have judges asking for "s'more." A huge s'more lover myself, I think that this recipe is GENIUS! Below is a picture of MaCall and her mom Danelle, showing off their Easy Bake Oven skills. You can also read the press release and see the names and pictures of all finalists with their yummy recipes.




Did you know that the Easy Bake Oven was first introduced in 1963? In its first year half a million kids talked their parents into getting them their very own Easy Bake Oven, the retail price then was $15.95. It took only five years for the Easy Bake Oven to become a household name. Over the last 40 years there have been 11 models and several color changes to reflect the style and era of each oven in their day. Its no wonder every woman I talk to had one or wanted one considering I was born in 1979, 16 years after its creation.

And just for those of you that are alien, and from another planet, and have no idea what an Easy Bake Oven is here is a current picture and all the info about it.



EASY-BAKE Oven & Snack Center
(Ages 8 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $24.99/Available: Spring 09)
The beloved EASY-BAKE Oven & Snack Center is back in its original aqua color. The classic side-loading oven that bakes with a light bulb returns to let bakers-in-the-making whip up tasty snacks for friends and family, including cakes, brownies, cookies, and much more. The oven comes with three different mixes, two baking pans, two utensils, a pan pusher, two warming cups and recipes/instructions. One 100-watt standard light bulb is required but not included. The Easy Bake Oven and Easy Bake Mixes are available at most major toy retailers nationwide, on HasbroToyShop.com and EasyBake.com. Don't forget to visit both of these sites for amazing downloadable recipes and the option to create your very own recipe book!

In honor of the seven finalists for the Easy Bake 2009 "Baker of the Year" contest, Hasbro is offering one very lucky Pretty Pink Momma reader the chance to win their very own Easy Bake Oven!

Here's How: Visit either HasbroToyShop.com or EasyBake.com and comment back here what your favorite Easy Bake Mix or recipe is. I want to know what you would create in your very own Easy Bake Oven. Open to US and Canada only.

Wordless Wednesday

12:00 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma



Here is a pic of baby Emilio's first Easter. I think that playing with all the brightly colored eggs was his favorite part of the whole day. Not to mention that it was a brand new brightly colored object to try to stick in his mouth.

Lastrose Rainbow Sweater Giveaway

9:57 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma

As some of you may know, I am getting ready to unveil my own web boutique. One of the things that I wish that I was good at is knitting and crocheting. I have often thought that it would be so awesome if I could learn these skills. I would love to be able to offer something as beautifully unique and hand made as a knit sweater or blanket. Learning these skills are definitely on my "To Do" list when my life slows down a little bit. But for now, I can simply just drool over what I have found on my latest Etsy shop feature, Lastrose.

Lastrose has some of the most beautifully hand knit and crocheted sweaters that I have seen. The quality of work just shines through in the amazing pictures that are on display in the Lastrose Etsy shop. It is hard to believe that these wonderful peices are not store bought! What I would give for this kind of talent! Below are some of my very favorites that Lastrose has to offer.


This sweater, from the Phat Baby Designs collection, is perfect for a baby girl! The perfect size for a three month old bundle of joy. This is knit in an attractive ribbed pattern and features a glitzy, black, faceted one-button closure. I love the awesome details that are put in to this sweater like the crocheted flowers and the hot pink trim at the bottom. This gorgeous sweater is only a mere $12!


I simply adore this set from the Baby and Toddler collection. Its probably because I have all boys, but I am a sucker for those cute little diaper covers! This hand crocheted set is lovingly stitched in a medium weight soft yarn, it's perfect for cool spring days ahead. The four round pearl buttons add a touch of elegance; the diaper cover features six clear, flat button closures. This set is perfectly sized for a three month old baby and available for only $15. What a fantastic price!


Last but certainly not least is this hand crocheted Rainbow Sweater, listed in the Baby and Toddler collection. This is the perfect light weight, breathable, comfy sweater for any Spring time baby girl. How cute would this look in pictures? This is also meant for a baby girl around the three month mark. This sweet sweater is priced at only $9.


In addition to lovely sweaters Lastrose also offers knit mittens that are super cute, girls hand crocheted ponchos and even some hand knit dish cloths! The items in this shop just ooze perfection and charm. It is clear to see the effort and care that is put into making each wonderful peice. Also if you see something that you like but would maybe like to purchase it in a different size don't be afraid to convo Lastrose and ask for a custom order. Please go visit Lastrose and check out all the great items that they have to offer.



Lastrose has graciously offered one lucky Pretty Pink Momma reader the chance to win the beautiful hand crocheted Rainbow Sweater that is featured above!


Here's How to win: Go visit Lastrose and comment back here on this post what your favorite item in the shop is. BE SPECIFIC. This giveaway is open to US and Canada only.

I love the music of the nineties! Right Said Fred with "I'm Too Sexy" is one of the funniest one hit wonders to come out of that decade. I just love the part where a grown man says he's gonna shake his "little tush on the catwalk". Hil. Lar. Ious.

I never really checked out other songs by Right Said Fred, but I now know why they were just a one hit wonder after watching a few videos like this one:

2:30 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma

One of my favorite bloggy buddies, Veronica Lee Of Mice and Ramen, has passed on two awards to me. Thanks Veronica! If you haven't had the chance to check out her very fun blog you should make the time. She has some of the best pictures of the coolest things.

Five Thing Friday #5

12:00 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma


Its Five Thing Friday time again! This is where I like to share five random things about myself or my crazy life with all of you! Hopefully you will get to know me a little bit better. I invite you to play along and share five random things about yourself with me. Just grab the button on my side bar or copy the image from above. Make sure to leave a comment if you play along so that I can go and check out your post!

1. I hate vinegar. I think it smells nasty. However, I do like Italian salad dressing. Go figure!

2. I have had the same netflix movie by my DVD player for the last three months. I keep meaning to watch it but I never seem to find the time. I guess I am too busy watching my favorite VH1 shows. In case your wondering, it is Definitely Maybe. Anyone seen it?

3. I love getting my hair done! I know, who doesn't right? I am so lucky that one of my closest friends is one of those high charging hairstylists. She normally charges $150 or more for a cut, partial foil and style. I only pay whatever I can. Sometimes I dont pay her at all and just help her out with her personal stuff, which I would do anyways. I dont get the salon treatment though because it is usually done at my BF's house. So I have to wash my own hair, but whatever, the end result is still awesome! Plus she knows if its not awesome, I'll kill her.

4. Little Benji has some developmental issues. He needs speech therapy a few times a week. He also is a little awkward socially. He just doesn't pick up on social cues like everyone else does. He is kind of the person that gets into your personal bubble if you know what I mean. He goes to a developmental preschool to help him with these issues. Its awesome for him and for me because its State funded and inside the same school that Oscar goes to. It is so nice to not have to worry about paying for Preschool.

5. I actally tasted some baby food the other day for the first time. I know it sounds weird considering that I have three kids but I think that it looks gross. It actually didn't taste that bad. I probably won't try it again just because I still think that it looks pretty gross. I know that it is just pureed food but I would have a hard time eating it even it was whole.


That wraps up my Five Thing Friday! To check out past Five Thing Fridays click here.

Oceanside Creations Giveaway

1:44 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma


I love going to the beach! I am so excited about the fact that summer is coming up fast. I love taking my boys to the beach and I can't wait to take Emilio for the very first time. I just love the beautiful surroundings and the relaxing feeling that comes with spending time near the ocean. My next Etsy shop feature, Oceanside Creations, obviously understands that feeling.

Oceanside Creations hand crafts necklaces, earrings, bracelets and more. All of the peices offered in this Etsy shop are one of a kind unique designs. I think that my favorite items are the ones that are wire wrapped. I just really like the look that wire wrapping adds to a piece. Below are a few examples of my wire wrapped picks.


I also love the oceanic inspired wire wrapped sea glass pendants in the Oceanside Treasures Collection. I think that these are so pretty. My favorite one from the collection is below.



In addition to these gorgeous pieces Oceanside Creations also offers a small collection of bridal jewelry. The jewelry pieces in the bridal collection all evoke a feeling of old fashioned charm and elegance. Many of these items are adorned with freshwater or Swarovski crystal pearls, antique gold, antique copper and ribbon. These beauties are definitely made with a special occasion in mind.

During the month of April Oceanside Creations is offering two great promotions for its customers. The first is free shipping worldwide for any customer that spends more than $20. The second is an opportunity to win a $10 gift certificate to Oceanside Creations by entering the Oceanside Creations Facebook Fan giveaway.
