Stroller Shadez Couture + $100 Target Gift Card Giveaway {$149.99 Value}


Welcome to the Stroller Shadez Couture, PLUS $100 Target gift card giveaway. We are giving away a beautiful stroller cover sold for $44.99-$49.99, making this prize package worth $149.99. 

Stroller Shadez Couture sun shades were created by a mom for moms. Since infant and children’s skin is extremely sensitive and sun burns can occur within minutes in direct sunlight, regardless of temperature, these shades are useful and necessary in all types of seasons and weather. Because they fit on both strollers and infant car seat carriers, only one product is needed as your child grows. They have been tested to be compatible with nearly all brands of infant carriers, strollers, and joggers, and the full list of compatible brands can be found on Stroller Shadez Couture’s product info page.

Here is a little more information on the shade shades from the Stroller Shadez Couture website:

Stroller Shadez Couture sun shades are a fashionable mesh framed sun shade used on strollers and infant carriers that offers front and side protection from the sun’s piercing rays. All Stroller Shadez Couture sun shades are engineered to fit on most strollers and infant carriers, so as your child transitions from an infant carrier to a stroller, the same sun shade can be used.

Stroller Shadez Couture sun shades protects your child from the heat and glare of the sun. While at the same time keeping your child cool, safe and comfortable. Stroller Shadez Couture shades allow you to extend the shade forward or backward so it covers the right amount of sun depending on the time of day and angle of the sun. It also provides your new born infant with immediate privacy when needed.

Stroller Shadez Couture sun shades are spot cleanable, light weight and can easily be attached to most strollers and infant carriers. Stroller Shadez Couture sun shades can quickly be unbuckled, twisted and placed in its convenient carrying case within seconds. The carrying case can be placed in your diaper bag, purse or stroller basket for easy access when needed.

Stroller Shadez Couture sun shades are also registered with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), our product also complies with all federal requirements. The protection of your child is our greatest concern. All components on our sun shades have been tested and passed lead content testing by a CPSC- accepted laboratory. In addition, Stroller Shadez Couture sun shades are sewn and assembled in the USA.

Now parents can enjoy walks, strolls and outings to the beach, zoo and amusement parks while protecting their children from the sun’s harmful rays. There is no longer a need to use a blanket to shield your child. Now there is Stroller Shadez Couture!

Removing Stubborn Grease Stains with Dawn Dish Soap #DawnBeyondtheSink #ad
My family calls me the spill queen. Yes friends, I am a klutz for life. I’ve found the likelihood of me spilling something on myself is directly propotionate to the attachment I have to the garment. If I LOVE it, I will spill. Grease stains are the worst. Removing stubborn grease stains can be incredibly frustrating. They happen all the time while cooking and are SO difficult to remove. Thankfully a few years ago I discovered an awesome little stain removing secret I’m sharing with y’all today. Pretreating with Dawn will remove almost any stain. Yes, even grease stains. Even toddler blueberry hand print stains. Seriously.

My old faithful burlap interchangeable wreath is back in business for the fall.

Here is the super cute Easter version of my burlap interchangeable wreath, a summer version with pinwheels, and a 4th of July version with fun tulle fireworks. If you love to change out decorations every season, a burlap wreath is the way to go. As you’ll see below, it is super easy to change it up often.
