JustKidCostumes.com Kids Knight Costume Review Blessings Abound Mommy

JustKidCostumes.Com Valiant Knight Costume Mom Review:

With Halloween at the end of this month, there will be many scrambling for the right costume.  Although our family doesn’t participate in Halloween, we do like to dress up and perform plays in our home all year round.  You can bet costumes get worth their wear in our house.  We’re always adding to our costume collection and not too long ago, I became acquainted with JustKidCostumes.com and their great selection of kid costumes.

With so many costumes to choose from, it was hard to choose which child should have the chance to pick out a new costume.  I finally decided it was my 7 year old son’s turn as the girls collectively have the most costumes to play and pretend in.  He picked out the Valiant Knight Costume in size 6-8 and the Knight’s Sword and Shield to match.  It wasn’t a surprise to me that he’d choose a knight costume as I’ve been reading Henty novels to him and there is one in particular he likes to me to read that involved knights.

It took only a week’s time from the time I placed my order and the time it arrived in my mailbox.  When we got the Valiant Knight Costume, my son’s eyes lit up and he outfitted himself in the knight costume as soon as I got it out of the box.  The Knight Costume  came with a grey tunic with faux chain-mail sleeves, screen-printed dragon emblem, grey gloves, faux chain-mail hood, and black boot covers.  The costume fit perfectly and each accessory was easy for him to put on himself without any trouble at all.  I could see where he could grow and still be able to wear it the following year, that is if he didn’t wear it out before then.

The only flaw I saw in the Valiant Knight Costume was that the faux chain-mail hood was sewn backwards.  At least that’s what it looked like to me since there was a seam in the front.  It didn’t bother my son one bit and he still shows it off to anyone that comes by and hasn’t seen him in it before.  He loves to reenact scenes from the novel in his new knight costume and now the girls are ecstatic to finally have a “knight in shining armor” they’ve always wanted when they perform their plays!

Styling Kids Fashion With Parigi Group Apple Bottoms Review and Giveaway!

Meet the Company:

For nearly a quarter of a century, Parigi Group’s stable of brands has played a major role and are some of the main contributors in helping to shape and define the children’s fashion apparel market. They represent brands such as PUMA, Apple Bottoms, Akademiks, and LRG.

Through the Mom Trials: As a reviewer for Mom Select, I was able to review an outfit from the Parigi Group.  I could hardly wait to see what they would send me since I knew they offer so many terrific brands for children’s apparel.   They ended up sending me an Apple Bottoms 3 piece hoodie outfit for Patience in a size 3-6 months and it’s as cute as can be!  The outfit included a dark coral short sleeved hoodie, dark coral and turquoise striped short sleeve shirt, and blue jean skort with a dark coral ruffle trim.  The color color combination is eye catching and boast the shades of summer.  Each clothing piece, snap, zipper pull, and button bore the well known Apple Bottoms logo.

The striped shirt features a wide neck with snap buttons on the back so you can slip it over your child’s head easily with no fuss.  There is a pretty floral embroidery with scalloped edges along the neckline and puffed cap sleeves for a trendy, but feminine look.  The matching hoodie also shares the same embroidery along each side of the zipper and Apple Bottoms logo on the back.  The zip up also has two front pouch pockets and stretchy ribbing around the end of the short sleeves.  The shirt and hoodie both are made out of thick, super soft cotton that is very comfortable on baby.  The denim skirt is durable with a soft cotton bloomer underneath.

I’d have to say that the sizing is right on as it fits my 4 month old infant perfectly!  The elastic around the sleeves and bloomers are fitted, but don’t cut into her arms and roly poly legs.  The colors compliment her skin tone and she looks so adorable in this outfit!  She gets plenty of compliments every time she wears this outfit it’s one of my favorite outfits to put on her.  Layers is a must in Alaska and I like that I can layer the zip up hoodie over her shirt when it’s cooler or take the hoodie off when the weather is hotter.  I especially like all the little touches on the outfit that makes it more girly like the ruffles, embroidery, lace trim, and bling of the metallic threading!

Electrolux Ultimate Banana Split Campaign For A Cause and $25 American Express Gift Card Giveaway!

The Electrolux brand refrigerator and freezer have split up!  You heard that right, they are now standing solo and I think it’s a wonderful thing.  You would not believe how many times I’ve griped about not having enough room in my refrigerator or freezer to store my food and drinks in and I have always thought having them be their own separate appliances  would be more of a benefit to my family of seven.  With separate appliances, there would be more room to organize and keep my food fresh and less trips to the grocery store.  It’s a win all around!

To celebrate the splitting up of the fridge and freezer, Kelly Ripa has partnered with the “Emporer of Ice Cream” Stephen Bruce, the owner and founder of the famous Serendipity 3 in New York City.  They have teamed up in an effort to raise money for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund through the Electrolux Ultimate Banana Split Campaign.  For every virtual banana split created, Electrolux will donate $1 to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund as part of its $750,000 commitment to help fight ovarian cancer.   They’ve also sweetened the deal as anyone who builds their own banana split will be automatically entered for a chance to win the daily prize of $50 towards summer treats and the grand prize:  the new Electrolux stand alone refrigerator and freezer!

It only takes a couple minutes to create your banana split of choice and help raise money for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.  Serendipity 3 has also included their ultimate banana split recipes on the site to help you get inspired in putting together your cool confections.  Take a look at my own 4th of July inspired virtual banana split above.  It was fun to put together and it made me feel good that I was able to help raise money for a good cause.  You can create your own today and every day at www.kelly-confidential.com!
