Business Cards from Uprinting (Giveaway)

As some of you may know, I am married to my graphic designer. (Shameless plug–he actually won a Graphic Design USA award for my logo and branding!)

I always seem to realize that I need a new batch of business cards at the very last minute and I hate to keep making the hubby ask his printer contacts for favors.

Ordering a batch of business cards from Uprinting,com seems like a pretty good option.  I haven’t yet tested out the quality of their print job, but I’ll report back when I get my new cards. is providing a business card package to one lucky winner, which includes:

250 Die-cut Business Cards for one (1) winner


OnlineShoes Teams Up with Patagonia & Healthy Child Healthy World! (review and giveaway)



How awesome would it be to buy a pair of cute, comfy shoes and also feel like you were doing something good for the world?

Ok, that was kind of a leading question.

For every pair of Patagonia shoes purchased from 4/10-4/23, Patagonia will donate $10 to Healthy Child Healthy World!

I was lucky enough to have my pick of Patagonia shoes from the site and after hemming and hawing for a while, I settled on the Maha Curl flat in Dragon Fruit .

I’ve been trying to upgrade my daily show wardrobe from sneakers and flip flops to something a little more chic, and these totally fit the bill.  And the little girl in me totally wanted a pair of pink shoes.  So. Much. Fun!

Pocoyo Squeeze ‘n Play (review and giveaway)

My 2 1/2 year old daughter isn’t really all that familiar with the characters from Pocoyo or the show itself (currently on Nick JR., PBS and Univision) However, when she opened the box with this soft 9-inch tall guy inside and heard 3 different sounds he makes when you squeeze his tummy, she immediately declared him her new baby.

This little guy has found his way into a doll stroller, a doll bed and into my daughter’s high chair (it was time for his lunch.)

I love that my kidlet didn’t need to be familiar with the show to immediately make friends with Pocoyo himself. Imagine the reaction that a die-hard fan of the cartoon would have?

My one issue is that I really don’t love toys that make noise…particularly toys that don’t have volume control. Thankfully, my daughter is more into toting Pocoyo around than actually squeezing him…though she does enjoy his little giggle.

The lovely folks at Bandai are providing one Squeeze ‘n Play Plush to a lucky winner!

He is perfect for all kids 18 months and up and retails for $19.99


Great Bling for Your Buck: TwittaBling (Review, Discount & Giveaway)

I fear that I have become a social media geek.

I think in statuses and, quite often, in 140 characters.

I have, more than once, had to identify myself as “peekababy” (yep, complete with finger air quotes.)

I have even been known to throw in terms such as hashtag, twitter party and klout in mixed company.

That said, I still like a little something shiny (aside, of course, from the prerequisite iPhone and laptop.)

TwittaBling, take me away….

Founded by Shelley Shafran (@itzuvi) and Yoni Wiseman (@bydahway), TwittaBling gives the social media obsessed the chance to turn their obsession sparkly. Users can customize necklaces, earrings, rings, and bracelets with their Twitter handle or hashtag in sterling silver or 14 karat gold and even add on additions such as Swarovski crystals or diamonds.

I must say, when I found out that I would be getting a necklace to review, I didn’t know quite what to expect.  What I got was a cute fuzzy heart shaped purple gift box with a decent-weight, super shiny silver necklace inside.  I have already worn my necklace to two different blogging events, and people zeroed in on my TwittaBling almost immediately.

Let me share with you the stages of bonding with my new necklace:

“Look at me in my new bling.  I am so cool that I am sticking out my tongue for no apparent reason!”

“I am so cool that I am laughing at myself, for that is what cool people do.”

“I am pensively cool.  I am looking toward the heavens, and I am doing it wearing bling.”

“I am unflappable, despite the fact that I am standing in the corner of my filthy kitchen.  I will commence washing dishes now, but I will do it in a new and blingful way.”


Oh, yeah, and a lot of super cool trendy Hollywood types are rocking their own TwittaBling.

TwittaBling was even mentioned as one of the Six Gifts Marketers Would Love to Unwrap This Holiday Season by

They all want to be as cool as me!

The generous folks at TwittaBling are providing a sterling silver necklace to a lucky winner! They will even ship it to you anywhere in the world…even Canada 😉 Need Bling right now? Use the code PEEKABABY10 at through 1/16 for 10% off!
