Mama Swag Monday | Heart of Hazel

Happy Monday! Today’s swag is just for the Mamas! Turbans from Heart of Hazel!

In addition, she has darling tees and the most amazing kimonos! Can’t wait to mine! Grab a tee & a turban for you & your little one!

Mama Swag Mondays are my favorite because, like most things, these shops & merchandise are born out of a need to create, & are often inspired by our kids. Heart of Hazel is no exception. Kim is a “mama, wife, DIY-addict, lover of iced coffee and the one-woman show behind Heart of Hazel. She creates apparel and accessories for stylish littles and their mamas, all inspired by her own little love, Hazel Mae.”  Kim’s new site launched on November 1st & she wants to give YOU a turban of your choice! To enter, hop on Instagram, follow @maddieb_photography & @heartofhazel for a chance to win. Winner will be announced tomorrow at 12pm MST.

Kim, I’m so glad I have gotten to know you these past few weeks. Your merch is killer and your heart is made of gold! Thank you for letting me brag on you today!



Mama Swag Tuesday | Jamberry + Giveaway

So, Mama Swag Monday is switching to Mama Swag Tuesday for the day. Life was a little insane yesterday, so I wasn’t able to get my act together & get my JAMICURE on. Oh, yeah, I said it.

I am the first to tell you that I had decided I wasn’t going to like Jamberry. I know plenty of reps, so I have plenty of access to them. I knew I could try them for free, but I wasn’t interested. My friend Ashley sends me a message a couple of weeks ago & asked if I would try them out. I told her, “sure.” << That was all the enthusiasm I could muster. She sends me a set for myself & for Maddie. Maddie was STOKED when I whipped out her tiny, little watermelon Jamberry nails, and, literally, asked me 15 times that day to put them on. She sat patiently & still on the floor in our bathroom, as we applied each nail. And I hate to admit it, but they are super cute & easy to apply. 



In between nursing twins, feeding the 4-year-old, taking photos, editing photos, cleaning-ish my house, and working on a giant presentation for Mama’s Gonna Snap, I stopped & did my nails. They were super easy to apply, and I could go right back to whatever I was doing…because, inevitably, one of the boys starts to cry AS SOON AS I do my nails. Only this time, it wasn’t a problem.


If you are interested, check Ashley’s stuff out here: You can also follow along on Facebook & Instagram! If you’re a Jamberry virgin, shoot Ash a message & she’ll send you a FREE set to try! Jamberry nails are BUY THREE GET ONE FREE!  a Rafflecopter giveaway
