8 is Great at Carter’s!

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Carter’s. I received a complimentary gift card to facilitate my review and thank me for my participation.

Carter's 8isgreat

As my kiddos get bigger, it’s getting harder to find clothes for them that are in style and keeping them looking like a kid.  This is especially difficult for my 6 year old who currently wears a size 7 or 8 in clothes!  Thankfully Carter’s understands my needs and is now offering their great styles up to size 8 in clothing!  Carter’s graciously invited myself and one of my daughters into the store to shop around and check out what styles they offer in size 8.

We absolutely had a blast together!  So many fun styles that it was hard to narrow down our favorites!  I loved watching my daughter wander the store and find things that were her own style.  We ended up with a couple tops, some tunics, and of course leggings.  Leggings are always a win for my daughter since jeans can be uncomfortable for her.  We were very impressed with the many different styles of leggings and combinations of tops that could go with them.  Lots of mix and match pieces and even jewelry and fun shoes to match.

Her favorite outfit is the one below.  It’s nice for fall transition and had some adorable jewelry and shoes to match!  That’s a win-win in her little world :-)

Chemical Free WaterWipes Debuting at Babies “R” Us!

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for WaterWipes. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Chemical Free WaterWipes Debuting at Babies R Us

As I mentioned the other day, one of my good friends had her baby over the weekend.  Sweet little boy was a whopping 10 lb, 2 oz!  This has me thinking about our baby and his upcoming arrival in September.  It’s been 4.5 years since I’ve had a baby and a lot of things have changed.  Companies are becoming more aware that moms like myself want more natural or chemical free products for their baby’s sensitive skin.  I know that I want to be using the absolute best products on my little ones.  They are so worth it!


Visiting with my friend’s newborn and one of his big brothers

I recently heard about WaterWipes and they sounded interesting to me.  Yesterday I set out with all 4 kids plus grandma in tow to find out more about this newer wipe product.  We headed out to the Babies R Us located at the Mall of Georgia.  When we found the wipe isle, at first I had trouble locating the wipes.  They aren’t right with the regular wipes, they are located more toward the natural or organic wipe products.  Slightly over from other brands of wipes, you’ll find these chemical free wipes.

Here are some interesting things I learned about WaterWipes during our trip:

  • WaterWipes are a premier brand in Europe.
  • WaterWipes are a chemical free baby wipe with only two ingredients!  Those are 99.9% pure Irish water and 0.1% grapefruit seed extract.
  • WaterWipes is a safer and natural option for keeping your little one clean.
  • WaterWipes help avoid diaper rash
  • WaterWipes are preservative-Free
  • WaterWipes are extra Soft, non greasy
  • WaterWipes are debuting now in Babies “R” Us stores for $3.99 a pack or 2/$6!

WaterWipes Safer and Natural

When we got home with the wipes, I couldn’t wait to see how soft these wipes were!  They definitely lived up to my expectations.  Not only super soft, but they smell so nice and fresh.  They are a great size as well!  Not too big, not to small.  Perfect for wiping little bums, faces, or hands, and I feel confident that they will be perfect for our little guy.

Some things to remember about the WaterWipes product is that they are a natural product and do not contain preservatives.  The package will keep for up to 15 months unopened and should be used within 1 month once it has been opened.  We go through wipes fairly quickly when we have a newborn around, so this time frame doesn’t bother me one bit!  Another thing to note is that WaterWipes are not inter folded like many other brands.  WaterWipes does not recommend moving the wipes to a different container so that way the sterile environment can be maintained within it’s original packaging.

You can currently find WaterWipes at select Babies “R” Us stores.  Priced at $3.99 each, or 2/$6 for a limited time.  For more information, visit the WaterWipes website, Facebook Page, Twitter, or Pinterest.
