Daddy's day!

So Father's Day was never a big deal for me. I never had one and only in the last few years did I celebrate it with Fabio's Father Claudio. So this year is extremely bittersweet, with Claudio's passing in August & then Fabio about to become one in just days!

I know he will be very sad as it will be his first Father's day without him so I tried to get him a feel good gift or two and this is what I came up with.

From daddyscrubs.com is the basic "i'm the daddy" tee. Now I really liked the scrubs and if we were having a scheduled surgery I would have definitely went with those, but since I am rooting for a natural birth I didn't want to jinx it. This is going in the hospital bag for his change of clothes:)

I also went for the scottevest.

Auctions, Snipers, & cribs oh my!

According to babble.com( ps, I am really obsessed with that site) This Go crib is the best travel crib. Like a pack and play, totally portable and fits in a backpack. I have been eyeing it up for months. At $250 + shipping though I was waiting for a sale or an awesome ebay auction to get it at a steal.

This post is meant to inform you of two things. This really great crib. The reviews are fabulous, and auction sniper. Isaw the listing on ebay over a week ago. Starting bid $24.95 score! I have been watching it all week. This morning it was up to $86.36 with 3 hours left. I was so scared to be outbid and miss this deal. So I logged on to
AuctionSniper.com - Easy eBay bid sniper solutions.
Easy eBay bid sniper solutions.

entered in the item number my max bid price and that was it. 3 hours later with 26 seconds to go. I watched my computer snipe away entering in my bid with three seconds left and winning me my crib at $151. A $100 + savings from retail and shipping costs.

From the site: Auction Sniper Is a Competitive Edge In Winning Auctions...

Let's face it: you really want to win that auction. And you don't want to pay too much. The secret: bid with your brain, instead of starting a bidding war. Use Auction Sniper to play the game on your own terms and begin winning auctions consistently.

Here are the benefits of using Auction Sniper...

Avoid a bidding war. Bidding wars often cause you to spend more money than you actually intended. Therefore you actually are going to be saving money by using Auction Sniper because you won’t rely on compulsive bidding to win an auction.

Let us do the work. Don’t let your work or leisure time get interrupted by a closing auction. With Auction Sniper you don't have to sit by your computer and watch the bidding until the auction closes. Once you place a snipe bid with us, our servers handle everything automatically. Not only are you saving money, but you are also saving time.

Why bid prematurely? Why would you want to increase an auction's current bid price if it doesn't close for several more days? This only leads to an inflated closing bid. There is no reason to bid prematurely; it will only encourage other bidders to bid on the item.

Cancel your bid. When you bid directly though eBay, it is generally difficult to cancel your bid. With Auction Sniper, you can cancel your bid up to 5 minutes before our servers place it for you. So you are buying time to think about your bid and make sure it's what you intend.

Bid Groups. AuctionSniper's Bid Groups feature allows you to bid on the same item from different sellers. As soon as you win one auction at the price you want, we'll automatically cancel the rest of your bids.
Win! Auctions with little effort and time. Save your worries for more important things...

If you are like me, you are interested in getting a great value when it comes to buying heels. You also want a little glamour as well as convenience. Well, I’m bringing you another choice where the monthly shoe club is concerned.

JustFab.com offers you the ability to take their style quiz, they determine what your “style personality” is based on the quiz and then the professional team of stylists pick shoes & handbags that fit your style. The price for these picks is the same as Shoedazzle which i have puchased several items from over the last year or so. One of the things I enjoy about other than the fact that you Get one pair of extraordinary shoes or bag every month, handpicked for you by our fashion experts. JustFab.com is that each month, they post a vid on what they like each month for shoes & handbags. They give you a few style options and this is a great help for the “style challenged”. The prices are reasonable and they have a wide array of styles to choose from. I love getting great value with added convenience, makes me squeal with happiness!

Do you have any experience with this club?

What's in your Birchbox????

Do you love samples? Do you like opening presents? Do you get excited just knowing there is a package on its way in the mail (I know I do!)? Do you love high end makeup and skincare? If you answered "yes" to all those questions, then signing up for Birchbox.com just might just be right for you!

Here's the scoop:

Birchbox is a "members-only" website where you can buy specific brands of high-end cosmetics and skincare. For $10 a month you get access to the website (tips, tricks, tutorials, etc), online shopping (with *free* shipping), points accumulation from purchases that can go towards free products/or as discount (similar to the Sephora Beauty Insider points), and (best of all) a monthly package (beautifully wrapped in a pink box) with 4-5 delux (large size, not the foil package kind, but the mini-bottle type) samples. What really convinced me to sign up: On the website, you can fill out a beauty profile. This way Birchbox can match your samples to your specific coloring, interests, and skin/hair type, types of products you like to splurge on, etc. So, your samples will be "personalized". Cool! Points can be accumulated by answering surveys, purchases, and referrals (not sure exactly how this works just yet, but will let ya'll know more specifics in the future!). The custom samples plus free shipping on orders really "sold" me!

I love trying new products and testing and reviewing (lol, can ya'll tell)!!! I also think this is an interesting and fun way for anyone wanting to branch out with their beauty routine to try out some new items (and get free shipping!). Plus, who doesn't like getting a "present" in the mail every month. :)

You open the Birchbox giftbox to reveal a Birchbox card with a note about the package's theme on the front and product descriptions on the back. Cute concept! I like the idea that the boxes have a "theme"! I really hadn't realized that they organized the boxes in that manner. So, cool!!! The card is lying on top of the products that are nicely wrapped within coordinating burgundy tissue paper.

Opening the box and the tissue gives you a waft of a lovely herbal-like scent which hints of the treats inside.

Overall, I am really pleased with this month’s Birchbox!!! Especially my DDF pore serum. It is already my favorite product I have been using, but this month to welcome me I am offered 20% off my first order~ SCORE! Another great Birchbox bonus: If you test and review the products you receive in your box on Birchbox.com, you earn extra loyalty points!

If you haven't had a chance to check out Birchbox for yourself, check them out here at Birchbox.com. It's just $10 per month or $100/year to join and get your own monthly samples box (and all the other benefits of being a member). You fill out an online profile and they will tailor your Birchbox samples to your specific profile and product preferences.

I am thrilled with this month's box and can already tell that this Birchbox membership is worth it! I can't wait to use and test out these products...and can't wait to see what next month's Birchbox will bring!

Luggage Reinvented

When you are traveling with children, I am assuming the biggest challenge is balancing carry-ons, strollers and babies. Going through security with the stroller, unfolding, refolding and then gathering up all of your things before heading on the plane is even more of a challenge when you are traveling solo!

The creative geniuses at Catiglione Morelli designed a really interesting stroller concept with family travel in mind. This creative option includes a specialized compartment that is attached to the luggage. This accessory folds out into a child seat allowing you to pull your baby and your luggage at the same time.

The only catch with this brilliant invention – it isn’t available as of yet. No word as to when or if they are planning on officially launching the luggage, but it is a pretty cool idea nonetheless! I am patiently awaiting this product:)
