Blogmania Sponsor Spotlight: Mabel's Lables

My Monkey loves "stuff!"  She loves filling a bag or purse with "her stuff."  Her stuff consists of books, cups, bowls, crayons, anything she feels is "stuff" worthy.  I catch myself saying "my stuff" so at least she gets it honestly.  Well when she's toting her bag of stuff every where we go, it's easy to lose some of it or get it mixed up with another child's bag of stuff.  So I'm constantly pulling my hair out and getting frustrated not only at losing stuff but at stickers and lables not staying put.
That is until I found Mabel's Lables!
I was sent a great set of Label Out Loud Sticky Lables to review.

Choose the name, up to 20 characters, and the design from 20 different motifs. I chose the pink princess for my Monkey. They are bright and fun. I was quick to label all of her "stuff."
This line is:
Dishwasher safe

Microwave safe

UV resistant

Peel and stick

In need of labels in other areas? Mabel's Labels has you covered. From clothing, skinny labels, bag tags, household labels, etc. There is something for all of your labeling needs.

I am excited to have Mabel's Labels as one of my Blogmania Sponsors (April 9-11). One of my lucky readers will receive a set like mine from the Label Out Loud Stick Labels with the name and motif of your choice ($21 value).

Orglamix review and giveaway Blogmania Sponsor

I was given the opportunity to review some mineral eyeshadow from an Etsy shop called Orglamix.

I love mineral make-up and love that Cheri makes all her own products! I was surprised at how the vibrant the colors are. You can go really subtle or bright and dynamic. Choosing the colors to test was not easy. I spent hours browsing as I LOVE makeup, LOVED her color choices, and LOVE shopping.  But I finally decided on a charcoal, a shimmer white, and a raspberry.   The cosmetics arrived beautifully packaged in a satin bag, in sleek black-lidded shaker jars with scented rose petals. She puts such care into the packaging, I was very impressed.

About the Shop:

Welcome to the next-generation of mineral makeup. With products made from zero synthetic ingredients,  Orglamix Cosmetics has become a huge sucess.  Orglamix is an Etsy shop that sells makeup made from 100% pure mineral. Cheri, the artisan behind Orglamix, never uses synthetic materials so you can be sure they are safe, especially for those of us with sensitive skin. Cheri says, “All Orglamix products are proudly formulated without: nano particles, bismuth oxychloride, synthetic dyes, petrochemicals or parabens. Orglamix is a proud member of PETA.”

What is more important, quality or value?  At Orglamix, they say both!  And that is exactly what you will get with every Orglamix product. Each product is of the highest quality and the greatest value compared to mega beauty brands.  The affordable prices will allow you room to try a variety of colors.  With over 200 choices, you are sure to find a few you love.

According to a recent survey: 99% of women who tried Orglamix said they’d recommend it to friends. But don't take their word for it.  Try Orglamix risk-free. They guarantee you will LOVE it or they will refund your money .

Blogmania Sponsor - SwimSpot!

Are you aware of how close summer is?  And that means swim suit season is close.  I'm trying not to freak out about the 1000 crunches I need to be doing before I will even attempt to step in a bathing suit.  Every year I say I'm going to work out and get ready and before you know it, it's August and I'm still sporting my muffin top!  Oh well.  In the mean time I love browsing around the net for cute bathing suits I can dream about looking good in.  And SwimSpot.com is a site I love visiting. 

SwimSpot is the #1 best women’s swim wear and bathing suit web boutique in the world. And the suits featured on the site are designed and produced in the U.S.A.

About SwimSpot
SwimSpot.com features a great selection of one piece swimsuits, bikini tops and bottoms, and swimsuit cover-ups with a wide spectrum of styles and fits for women looking to purchase the perfect suit for the swim season.  AND they also have a little girl's line.  Since I'm not ready to stuff my rolls into their fabulous suits yet I got my daughter this awesome suit for this summer.  How adorable is that?  I'm making her matching flip flops and bow to rock it out this summer!

But if you are looking for a suit for you then you have to check out the Bikini Builder.  SwimSpot.com created the Bikini Builder application because they know that their customers not only want to shop the racks, but also want to play designer and come up with fresh looks to help them standout in a crowd. You can mix and match from hundreds of swimwear tops and bottoms.

I love how their site is filled with every design, style, and fit to accomadate every figure, shape, and size.  I adore their cover ups and their sales pretty much rock!!  Their customer service and shipping is top notch and this is a store and website I will be sharing with all my friends. 

AND I'm so excited to announce that SwimSpot is a Blogmania Sponsor for Texas Monkey.  That means that one lucky reader will win a $100 gift certificate to SwimSpot.  With summer so close, I know this will come in handy.
Happy & Healthy

Blogmania will take place starting April 9th and ending April 11th. Be sure to come back and enter to win this and so much more on my blog!
In the mean time stop by SwimSpot and let me know what suit you'd like if you won and please show this sponsor some love by:
