Does Your Mom Love Sweets? If You Love Her Send Sharis Berries - Review and Discount

1:35 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma





Its not a huge secret that I love sweets.  Sweets are a nice reward after a rough day with the kids, stealing that one solitary moment all to myself.  I don't think that I am alone in this self rewarding system either.  Decadent desserts and treats make a great reward but they also make for a fantastic gift.  With Mother's Day quickly approaching I am more than eager to tell you about one of my sweetest finds to date, Sharis Berries.
Last week I was lucky enough to receive a sweet package, like the one shown above, that contained 4 Dipped Cookies and One Full Dozen Giant Dipped Swizzled Berries.  I was so excited to open the box and see what I was about to devour.  Everything was so perfectly packed and when I opened the box of Dipped Fancy Berries I almost died when I saw how huge they were!  Each and every one the strawberries covered in chocolate were perfectly placed on the tray and I had no idea which one was going to meet its demise first.  The Dipped Cookies looked just as tasty and its not too often that I meet a cookie I don't like if you know what I'm sayin'.





Then the big moment of truth came.  I took one big bite of a fancy dipped berry.  It was SO juicy and OH SO good!  The cookies were just as delicious.  Soft, chewy and they melted in my mouth.  This was such a great pick me up during the middle of an otherwise crazy day. And, being the nice mom that I am I shared them with the ones I love most because they deserve a reward too.


Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Sharis Berries has tons of decadent ideas that don't just revolve around berries.  I mean sure, berries are big part of many gift ideas but there are tons of other options like the cookies I ordered, cheesecakes, truffles and cupcakes just to name a few.  They also carry gifts that don't completely revolve around desserts too.  Below are some of my favorite gift ideas for Mother's Day offered at Sharis Berries.

See what I mean?  Any mom would love a deliciously thoughtful gift like the ones above.  For more great gift ideas please visit Sharis Berries.  Also for updates you can follow them on Facebook too!

Aloha Friday - The Dishes Are Done Man!

12:00 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma

[alohafriday.jpg]

Aloha Fridays are brought to you by Kailani from An Island Life. Over there in Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that they take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So Kailani thought that on Fridays she would take it easy on posting, too. So, for Aloha Friday, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Answer my question and put one of your own up on your blog. Link up and check out other blogs that participate at An Island Life.


Who cooks in your home and who does the dishes?



I was having issues with the fact that I was the only one cooking and doing the dishes on a regular basis.  So, I went on strike.  Sounds silly but it worked.  Now if my husband wants me to cook dinner than he better be more than willing to do the dishes.  So far so good.... I haven't touched the dishes in two weeks!

Make Mom Proud This Mother's Day and Donate $5 to a Charity in Her Honor Thanks to Macy's "Thank a Mom Movement"

1:41 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma



Ever since I became a mother myself I have been on a gradual journey of understanding and compassion towards my own mother and what she feels about me.  Its a feeling that I just don't think anyone can truly "get" until they become a parent and fall head over heels in love with their child.  When you become a mom you know within an instant that you walk on water to make your baby happy.  As a grown woman I am finally able to begin to comprehend the love my mom has for me.

And I am so very thankful to her for always being there for me no matter what.  My mom really is #1 in my book.  Every day I aspire to be more like her and I couldn't ask for a better role model.


Join Macy's in their
"Thank a Mom Movement"



This Mother’s Day, join Macy’s in their “Thank a Mom Movement” which not only celebrates mom but empowers you to select which charity you want Macy’s to donate $5 (up to a total of $400,000) to in her honor.


I hope that I can inspire you to select one of Macy’s five partnering charities to support.  All you have to do is send a FREE e-card to the amazing moms in your life and Macy’s will donate $5 to the charity of their choice! I hope that you will visit the “Thank a Mom Movement” on Facebook to make a difference this Mother’s Day:


Below please find info and videos for each of the five charities involved in Macy’s “Thank a Mom Movement”.

Shop For Unique Gifts Crafted By Artists Across the Globe at NOVICA

12:30 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma



I am always on the look out for new and amazing places to shop.  I love to be the one amongst my friends that finds that one of kind gift from a unique and interesting place.  Not only do I shop for others but for myself as well.  Being able to own a one of a kind item that is made in limited quantities adds a value that simply can't be compared.  You can imagine how I felt when I learned of an awesome fair trade artisan website called NOVICA.

About NOVICA

NOVICA works with National Geographic and gives talented artisans around the world a place where they can express their artistic talents and provide access to the world market. They have thousands of jewelry pieces, corporate gifts, green gifts and home decor available to choose from on their website.

NOVICA wants you to know about the artist you're buying from. They want you to feel that attachment to the product and to the hands that created it.  Each item offered on the website is coupled with a picture and bio of the artist as well as links to other items offered by the same artist on the NOVICA site.

Fair Trade and Compensation of Artisans

NOVICA doesn't charge the artists for listing their items on the website.  The artisans are fully independent and they are free to raise or lower their prices, even remove the item, if they see fit.  This process allows both the buyer and the artisan to cut out the middleman between them which is a benefit for both parties involved.


The Review

I was really excited to pick something out to review from this site because its filled with so many different options to choose from.  In fact, there were so many things that I wanted it took me a few days to narrow it down and finally choose.  These were my top picks:

Photobucket


There were literally thousands of items to look at so I tried to narrow it down to my favorite categories or something that I have been searching for specifically.  I looked at handbags because I could always use a new purse.  I checked out the hammocks because I have always secretly wanted one in my backyard.  I just love the lazy look of them and, well, I love being lazy so it seemed like a great idea.  Then I was thinking to myself that if I was a super nice wifey I would get my husband a new leather toiletry bag that I found in the corporate gift section.  He has really wanted one since his was stolen last summer during our auto theft debacle. In the end though, my heart sang when I saw this silver choker. 

This stunning choker is called Whirlwind and was created by an artisan in Thailand. When I saw it I knew that I just had to have it.  NOVICA made it really easy for me to evaluate the necklace closely and decide that it was the one for me.  The necklace had multiple pictures, close up shots, measurements, the artist bio, other items created by the artist and more.  I hate those sites that only have one picture of the item and a brief description.  It always seems like such a gamble when you make a purchase that you can't completely envision in your head.  That would never happen at NOVICA because they provide so much information for each and every item they offer that its near impossible to make an ill informed decision.

In addition most items come beautifully wrapped or boxed.  My choker was no exception.  Here is a picture of the beautiful way it was presented to me when I opened the package:


This gorgeous jewelry box is made of handmade mulberry bark paper that has been made in Thailand for more than 700 years.  I thought that this was so cool and its a green way to send this beautiful necklace to its new owner.  So, not only will I treasure the necklace but the box it was sent in!

All in all I have had a wonderful experience shopping with NOVICA.  There are many more gifts that I plan on purchasing in the near future.  I think that hammock is calling my name...

There is still time to purchase a gift for mom this Mother's Day too.  I know at NOVICA you can find a unique gift that mom would never expect but thoroughly treasure.

Wordless/Wordful Wednesday - Easter Egg Fun!

12:00 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma

Believe it or not I have never attempted to dye Easter eggs with my kids. Which is pretty crazy considering my oldest is almost 8. We have always been way too busy on the day of with family engagements or work so it didn't happen. This year was a little different because we moved and we decided not to go visit my in-laws and just enjoy being home alone with our boys.

I was really excited to dye the eggs except I realized the day of that I was missing vinegar for the dye. Our eggs came out a muted pastel color because we just used water. I had a monster kit with different stickers and things to decorate the eggs with and the boys had a lot of fun - when they weren't breaking the eggs on accident that is.

We had about five casualties but finally came up with a few good ones to share. Here they are!


Emilio's Egg

Benji's Egg

Oscar's Egg

My Egg

Let Mom Enjoy Beautiful Flowers This Mother's Day from ProFlowers.com - Review and Giveaway

12:05 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma



Who doesn't love getting flowers?  I know that when I get them, no matter what the occasion, I get all warm and fuzzy inside.  Even if I end up buying them for myself they still make me smile when they get delivered.  My new go to source for gorgeous flowers and plants at a great price is ProFlowers.


About ProFlowers - taken from ProFlowers.com

ProFlowers has been connecting consumers with fresh-from-the-field flowers since 1998. It's no wonder that ProFlowers has led the industry in providing a 7 day freshness guarantee on each and every order. Here's why:

Flowers fresh-from-the-start

ProFlowers started with a single farm in California, shipping just 500 rose bouquets for Valentine's Day. 10 years later, we serve more than 7 million customers with 185 fresh cut varieties from eight different countries around the world.

Flowers fresh-from-the-field

At each one of our farms, employees and experts nurture the flowers from bud to blossom, ensuring only the best-of-the-best get picked for your bouquet.

Flowers directly to you

Once hand-picked, our flowers are delivered directly to you. Others take a longer route through brokers, middlemen and, finally, a florist's shop. By the time they reach the recipient, their best days are long gone.

Mother's Day Gifts Available at ProFlowers

ProFlowers has a large variety of gifts and Mother's Day Flowers that any Mom would love to receive.  I picked out a few of my favorite options so that you could see just how awesome and diverse they are.


Rose Friendship Box $29.95



Two Dozen Rainbow Long Stemmed Roses $42.96



Azalea Bonsai for Mom $39.99




The Review



I just received a beautiful Fragrant Gardenia Topiary, like the one shown above, from ProFlowers and I LOVE it!  It came so carefully wrapped and packaged that it took me a good ten minutes to get my plant free from all of the packaging.  But when my topiary was finally free - it took my breath away.  It was all that I had expected it to be.  It came in bud form and I can't wait for this baby to bloom.  It also came with a plant care card so I know exactly how to take care of it properly so it stays beautiful and healthy. Which is VERY important for this black thumb.  

I am so pleased with my plant and I would definitely recommend ProFlowers for delivered flowers.  Most any item you order can be delivered within a few days.  My topiary came really fast and they have so many affordable gifts to choose from including plants, flowers and beyond.



Buy It!

If you are looking to buy some great Mother's Day gifts from ProFlowers you have to check out their Coupons page.  The coupon offers include save 20%, free weekday delivery, free vase and other deals.

Also, if you visit the ProFlowers facebook fan page and become a fan, as a thank you will receive 20% off of your order!

ProFlowers is graciously offering one lucky Pretty Pink Momma reader a $50 gift code that is valid until 12/31/2011

Scott Naturals Test Drive Week 3 Giveaway! - It's Time to Give Back

1:40 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma



We are now in the third week of the Scott Naturals 4 Week Test Drive!  Just in case you have missed what the Test Drive campaign is all about you can read more here.  Also last week, for the second week in a row, Scott Naturals offered a Scott Naturals hybrid paper kit to one Pretty Pink Momma reader. Congratulations goes to purplelover04!

It's Time to Give Back

 
The first week I focused on tips for going green and last week it was all about enjoying what the great outdoors has to offer. This week I wanted to focus on giving back to our community or environment. With last Friday being Earth Day this topic was fresh on my mind and due to the fact that I had been sick this last week I didn't get to expand on it as much as I would have liked so I thought this would be a great way to tie it in to the going green theme of Scott Naturals.



April 22nd was Earth Day and I was proud to participate as a state leader on the B Kind 2 Earth Day Facebook campaign.  B Kind 2 Earth Day is a project partnered by Nickelodeon's The Big Help, National Wildlife Federation and The Motherhood.  The goal of this campaign was to inspire others to do just one good thing for the Earth on April 22nd.  Basically whatever you choose to do for Earth Day collectively will make a huge impact.  I was really excited to share this with my children.

Unfortunately I got a late start on my Earth Day celebration with my kids.  I was planning on going on what I call a "Trash or Treasure" nature walk and possibly a park or two.  I got a little held up because my two year old found a piece of packing foam and decided to shove it up his nose.  After several attempts I finally had to throw in the towel and take the one hour drive to my pediatrician's office to have them remove it.  With all the chaos the kids and I didn't get back until about 6 that evening so we only had time to take our "Trash or Treasure" walk around our neighborhood.



Our"Trash or Treasure" nature walk was really fun and I loved that I got to teach my kids about why its so important to protect and care for our environment.  Basically on the walk my boys had two bags, one for trash and the other for treasures.  My boys love collecting rocks so that was pretty much their treasure that they searched for.  Going around the neighborhood the boys found lots of both.  My oldest went for the trash, the middle for the treasure and the youngest did a bit of both.  It was actually really surprising for me to see just how much trash was lying around our neighborhood.  I am so glad that we were not only helping our environment by cleaning it up but beautifying where we live as well.




I thought that the Give Back theme would be great to implement not only on Earth Day but as often as possible.  There is no greater lesson we can teach our kids than respect.  Whether its respect for the environment or for others around us its a good opportunity to show our children how important it is to be involved in our community.




Scott Naturals Partnership with the National Wildlife Federation Partnership

As part of the 4 Week Challenge promotion Scott Naturals has partnered with the National Wildlife Federation and will be making a donation of up to $25,000 in support of the NWF.  

Here's how it works:

Please take advantage of Facebook and Twitter, you can use the #ScottNaturals or #ScottTestDrive hashtag, to share this link with everyone you know so that we can reach our goal of a $25,000 donation to the National Wildlife Federation

Happy Earth Day! Let's Celebrate With an Eco Chic Earth Friendly Giveaway from Lorijoz Unique Gifts!

2:04 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma



Earth Day is finally upon us!  Its time to celebrate our Earth and today is the day that we show our love for our planet.  Earth Day is a reminder for all of us each year that we need to take care of the environment or one day it won't be there to help take care us.  There are so many things that we can do each day that will add up tremendously in the long run.  For some simple ideas of ways to get your family involved in getting green check out this post I wrote a couple of weeks ago.

A few of the ideas that I went over in that post revolved around the use of paper and plastics and finding alternatives for their uses.  For example you could use a hand towel to dry your hands instead of paper towels.  Or when shopping use a reusable bag instead of the plastic ones.  These are both simple ways that your family can make a difference that won't make a huge impact on your everyday routine but it will make a big impact on our planet.  Not to mention the big impact it will have on teaching our children to protect it.

In honor of Earth Day I am spotlighting one of my very favorite artists that makes and sells handmade goods.  Lorijoz Unique Gifts makes the best looking coffee sleeves that I have seen!  I love this product because it is a great way to support Earth Day and its such an incredibly simple step towards being green.  Many coffee sleeves are tossed into the trash right along with the paper cup they are protecting your hand from.  Just think of how much paper waste you can save from the landfills by switching out your paper sleeve with a chic fabric one created by Lorijoz Unique Gifts!

Here are a few of my favorite patterns:





I think that these coffee cozies would make the best gifts for Mother's Day too.  If you know a mom that loves her daily dose of Starbucks this cozy coupled with a Starbucks gift card would be the perfect gift.  Even better if you pair it up with one of Lorijoz's Wristlet Key Chains.

I love the Wristlet Key Chains that Lorijoz makes.  The patterns are modern and fun I love just having my keys hang off my wrist.  Being a mom with a runaway toddler my hands are constantly full and this is a simple and effective way to hang onto my keys without losing them.  Lorijoz Unique Gifts sent me a wristlet and I can personally attest to the quality, strength and beauty of this hand made gift.  These key chains are made to last and very durable.  So ditch your plastic key chains that serve no purpose and get a wristlet instead.  Here are couple of my favorites from the huge collection offered at Lorijoz:




Super cute huh?  Lorijoz Unique Gifts offers affordable, chic and fun handmade gifts.  In addition to the coffee sleeves and the wristlet key chains Lorijoz offers headbands, bows, clips, aprons and so much more!  Please visit Lorijoz Unique Gifts on Facebook and see for yourself the wonderful items available for purchase.


Buy It!

Celebrate Earth Day and buy a coffee sleeve from Lorijoz Unique Gifts starting at $6.99.  A fun wristlet key chain is available starting at $5.99.


Win It!

Lorijoz Unique Gifts is offering one lucky Pretty Pink Momma reader a coffee sleeve in honor of Earth Day.  The winner will get to choose their favorite from among these six options:
