Mightee Kids

DISCLAIMER: I received this shirt from Mightee Kids at no cost to myself.  However, I was not paid by Mightee Kids for this review, nor was I required to review their product in exchange for the free t-shirt.
I was intrigued when Mightee Kids first contacted me.  They are a monthly subscription box, which is crazy popular right now, only they work with a new charity every month!  They explained to me that every month, subscribers receive a t-shirt & an information card with information on a particular month’s charity.  When I received our first box, I was thrilled.  Not only is the t-shirt actually cool & something I’d purchase myself for Collin, but it came with a card that broke down the charity into terms that he could understand.  What an awesome way to teach our children about diversity & giving back!
This month’s charity is Smile Train which helps children with facial deformities such as cleft lips & cleft palates.  The shirt is all about smiles & cheesin’ it up, which is perfect to help kids understand the significance of the work the charity does to help create smiles.
$25 per month (with discounts if you purchase more months in advance) gives $5 per month directly to the charity for that month.  You’ll get a new shirt for your kid & a card to help you explain to your children why that shirt has significance.  It helps bring awareness & you get a rad shirt out of it, too.  If you don’t want or need the shirt, you can also donate directly to the charity of that month via their website.
I like that Collin gets a new shirt once a month with as fast as he grows & I love that it’s a tool to help me teach him about compassion & giving back.

Handmade Baby Legs Christmas Giveaway (Just ‘Cuz)

My sister recently started making her own babylegs.  And then started giving them as gifts.  And then people on my IG started asking demanding to be able to buy them.  And then I became her babylegs pimp.  
For reals though, I’ve been encouraging her to open up an Etsy store to sell her babylegs.  She finds the raddest prints & coolest socks that she turns into the hippest little babylegs ever.  She is a little apprehensive about opening a shop, but every single time I post about her on IG, Mamas be trippin’.  I think there is definitely a ton of us who want more of a variety of these.
Seester decided to do a giveaway on my blog.  Just for fun & in hopes that whomever wins will give her feedback.  Is this a product you’d pay for?  Do they fit nicely?  Do they slide down? Etc, etc.
So, I’ll be giving away a pair to two lucky readers!  One boy pair & one girl pair!  Photos below for your viewing pleasure:

Handmade Hannah

If you haven’t checked out my lovely large ad sponsor for this month yet, you really should.  I don’t take just any sponsor & analyze carefully if I want a person’s shop/product on my blog.  This is my little corner of the world & I don’t want to just promote someone or a company just because they want to give me some money.  I take on quality, fun shops that I would legitimately recommend or purchase from personally.

Hannah’s shop, Handmade Hannah, is super cute.  I cannot wait for Evie to get here so I can get a few of her darling bows to adorn her head.  The best part about Hannah’s shop is that she makes fun, alternative, spunky stuff.  It’s all totally creative & unique.  You won’t find all frills & pink…unless that’s what you want, because she also does custom stuff!

Here are a few of my favorite’s from Hannah’s shop:

She sells burp tons more rad stuff.  Please go check out her shop out & browse around.  And while your there, add that Octopus bow in your cart for me.
