Peppercorn Kids ~ Unique Children Accents ~ Review ~ Holiday Gift Guide

*Disclosure:  We received a press sample to facilitate this review: all opinions are 100% my own*
Peppercorn Kids is an awesome online shop that sells “Unique Children Accents”!  I am a new fan of Peppercorn Kids, and they definitely have me hooked.  They offer the most adorable accessories for little fashionistas including scarves, jewelry, knitwear and tons more.  They even have a boys accessory line with some of the cutest hats I’ve ever seen!
Knowing how much my little fashion queen loves accessories I am sure that Peppercorn Kids will be a regular shopping spot for us from now on!
Check out these gorgeous accessories we got to try:

This is the Peppercorn Kids “Sequin Heart Beanie” in light pink.  I love this hat!  It’s so beautiful and unique, plus Lilly is on a huge heart kick lately so anything with hearts on it makes her smile!  The hat is soft and thick and the large sequined heart on the side make it the perfect hat for any little girly girl! 
The Sequin Heart Beanie retails for $25.00
This is the Peppercorn Kids “Bow Collared Necklace” in fuchsia.  This necklace is beyond adorable!  Lilly wore it with her hair in a bun, her rhinestone false black rimmed glasses, and a denim button up shirt.  It looked perfect together, very nerdy chic! 
The Bow Collared Necklaces retail for $12.00.

CitiBlocs by Alexa Brands Review ~ Holiday Gift Guide!

*Disclosure:  We received a press sample to facilitate this review: all opinions are 100% my own*
 There is something in the simplicity of the CitiBlocs set from Alex Brands that makes it incredibly fun.
These are thin wooden blocks that are designed perfectly to build amazing structures from simple houses or towers to over the top castles and snakes.
 The CitiBlocs set we had the opportunity to try was the 300 piece Natural Building Blocks Set.  Which retails for $74.99 on the Alex Brands website.

As most kids my children have always been obsessed with building blocks and bricks, however we hadn’t used wooden blocks sense the kids were toddlers.  As they got older I always associated wooden blocks with large clunky blocks that were more suited for the younger kids.
CitiBlocs Natural Building Sets have definitely changed my mind about wooden building sets.
The blocks are thin and easy to manipulate in order to build whatever your imagination can dream up.  I saw how engaged my son was while building even the simplest of structures with these blocks and its awesome to watch his excitement and determination while he strategizes his building method.
This is a great gift idea this holiday season!

Hello Kitty Bluetooth Speaker Review ~ Holiday Gift Guide

*Disclosure:  We received a press sample to facilitate this review: all opinions are 100% my own*
Share your favorite music with family, friends and Hello Kitty, with this Bluetooth wireless speaker system. Enjoy crisp and clean wireless audio through the powerful, amplified speaker from any Bluetooth enabled device including many smartphones. There is also an auxiliary input jack, with cable included, to connect and play music from your computer, MP3, CD player or other digital audio devices. A built-in USB port has been included for the convenience of portable device battery charging.
This little speaker is absolutely adorable!  Lilly is a Hello Kitty fan like a lot of girls her age and she couldn’t get enough of being able to play her favorite songs all over the house.  The speaker is a great size and can easily be carried everywhere with her.  This means mommy has been listening to “Let it Go” dozens of times a day!  I get excited when she decides to change it to “Jingle Bells” so that my brain can literally let it go.  The design is also seamlessly beautiful, it could be used by Hello Kitty lovers of all ages.
 I was very impressed with the clarity of the sound, also how loud it was able to play for such a small speaker.  This is not only great for the kids listening to Frozen, but we have taken it out on the porch several times and used it with the adults because the sound quality compares to many speakers I have bought for myself.

The Hello Kitty Bluetooth Speaker is available at both ToysRUs and Amazon for $39.99.
