Feel Like a Princess with SmitCo Girls Dress Up Set

SmitCo Dress Up Set

My daughter loves playing dress up! She always loves trying on new dress up clothes, a girl can never have to many dress up clothes right?!! I knew she was going to fall in love with this Girl Dress Up Set from Smitco. They have a wide assortment of quality, affordable gifts for girls 2-12.

SmitCo 4pc Dress Up Set

The Girls Dress Up Set comes with a glitter tutu, pink satin gloves, tiara with pink jewels and a lace umbrella. She instantly fell in love with the lace umbrella! She has never had one before so this was definitely was her favorite item from this set. It’s not a plastic flimsy umbrella, it has a metal handle and is real sturdy. I don’t have to worry about it breaking after the 1st use. The tutu has an elastic waistband for stretch and it fits well with room for moving. The satin gloves are just adorable. They are made of soft satin material and have a cute bow & pearl at the top.

Pregnant Naturally at 50?! Janet Jackson Settles In With Newborn Son

Conceive Easy

It’s been a month since 50 year old pop superstar Janet Jackson gave birth to her son Eissa, and sources say that the brand new mom is settling in nicely. Janet and her husband, Qatari billionaire businessman Wissam Al Mana, met back in 2010, and were secretly married in 2012. The singer has always been extremely private, so it was no surprise that she kept her nuptials under wraps. Since giving birth on January 3, Janet has been spotted out in London a couple of times, once shopping at a baby boutique and once at a flower shop. Her husband, however, has not been seen in public since the baby’s birth. Sources close to Jackson say that she is resting comfortably, enjoying her time with her new baby, and remaining stress free during this amazing time. Janet reportedly had quite a difficult pregnancy, and is really basking in the glow of new motherhood.


It seems like Janet is also keeping family close during her first few weeks as a mom. On Monday, her mother, 86 year old Katherine Jackson, and her 66 year old sister Rebbie were photographed leaving Janet’s London home. The duo stayed for over four hours, and we are sure they had a great time with that adorable baby boy! We are so thrilled for Janet that she had a healthy delivery and that her baby boy arrived safe and sound. We are sure that she is going to be one amazing mama!

The Berenstain Bears Hugs & Kisses Sticker & Activity Book Review

Some of my favorite books to read growing up were Berenstain Bears. I love that I can share them with my children now. They are fun, entertaining and always have good messages throughout them. With Valentines Day coming up The Berenstain Bears Hugs & Kisses Sticker & Activity Book is perfect for celebrating the day in a fun way.

The Berenstain Bears Hugs & Kisses Sticker & Activity Book

Book Description

Celebrate Valentine’s Day with the Berenstain Bears with puzzles, activity pages, and more than 50 reusable stickers in The Berenstain Bears Hugs and Kisses Sticker and Activity Book.

Featuring Papa, Mama, Brother, Sister, and Honey and the rest of the Bear Country gang, kids are sure to have loads of fun as they help Sister Bear through a maze to find her Valentine, solve word puzzles with Brother, color with Honey Bear, and a whole lot more!

The Berenstain Bears Hugs & Kisses Sticker & Activity Book Review

I got this for my daughter and she loves it! She loves all the fun activites but I think her favorite part was finding where the stickers go. Since she is only 5 1/2 the 2 word searches were a little hard for her but she still enjoyed trying! I helped her and with a little bit more practice she will be a whiz at word searches. The book gave her something fun to do when she got done with her school work but I was still working with her brother.


The Berenstain Bears Hugs & Kisses Sticker & Activity Book would make a perfect Valentine’s Gift for those looking for an alternative to chocolate or candies. You can purchase this on Amazon at the link below.
