Lotus Bumz Cloth Diaper Review and Giveaway!!!!

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
 Lotus Bumz was so generous to send me a Lotus Bumz Cloth Diaper in the Blue Honeycomb Style to review and offer my honest opinion.

To be totally honest I was absolutely delighted to receive one. These Cloth Diapers by Lotus Bumz are really Cute!!! Not to mention that it is so easy to use, clean and will grow with your baby. I received this right in time for the by Grandsons Baby shower and they had not seen anything like it. I used it as a topper on the diaper cake I had made for her and the cloth diaper was cute it was the first thing she grabbed.













You can see by the picture on the right just how versitle these cloth diapers really are, They will grow with your baby due to the various snaps which makes the clothes a one size fits all it will adjust from small to medium and to large. It also comes with a a 3-layer microfiber insert that lines the already soft interior of the diaper.

In my Opinion:
These diapers are so cute and stylish it is more reliable than the old stand by disposible diaper because babies grow so fast and you are constantly having to move to the next size up. But what about the diapers that are left in the bag, that is money wasted. It is so much more dependable to use a cloth diaper that will grow with your baby.

From the Website:
There are countless reasons to use cloth diapers, such as the environmental benefits, the financial savings and the health advantages of chemical-free fabric. Plus, this cloth diaper is both adorable and functional!

*All PUL outer lining

Wearever Diabetic Buster Brown Cotton Knee High Sock Review!!! And Giveaway!!!!

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. Wearever and Defeat Diabetes Foundation Partner to Fundraise in Support of Diabetes Awareness and Prevention this December

A Portion of Proceeds on Select Wearever Wellness Apparel Solutions will Benefit Defeat Diabetes Foundation

DURHAM, N.C. – Nov. 12, 2013 –The Wearever® brand, makers of comfortable, quality, affordable and stylish apparel solutions for everyday health and wellness concerns, and Defeat Diabetes Foundation are partnering to raise money in support of diabetes awareness and prevention. Throughout the month of December, 10 percent of proceeds from Wearever men's and women's incontinence underwear lines and its Buster Brown socks will be donated to DDF.

According to Defeat Diabetes Foundation, there are three main types of diabetes, Type 1, Type 2 and gestational diabetes. Nearly 25.8 million Americans have diabetes, and that number is expected to continue increasing. Diabetes can be life-threatening but is manageable with early detection.

“We want those living with diabetes to know that they are neither helpless nor hopeless and can lead productive lives through the proper self-management of diabetes. The key is awareness, prevention and early detection for both diabetes and its complications,” said Andrew P. Mandell, DDF executive director also known as Mr. Diabetes®. “Wearever offers products that relieve some of diabetes’ most uncomfortable symptoms and side effects and we are excited to partner with them in helping to raise funds to support the cause. Together we can…Defeat Diabetes®.”

Diabetes can cause urinary incontinence in both men and women due to nerve damage and added pressure to the pelvic area when weight gain occurs. Wearever incontinence underwear look and feel like traditional underwear, but offer absorbent protection that works as well as or better than the alternative, adult diapers. The line’s innovative Unique-dri™ sewn-in pad features a three-layer design: the top layer lets liquid in; the middle layer moves liquid out to the edges of the fabric, wicking it away so it doesn’t pool and helping to resist bacteria growth and odor; and the urethane bottom layer prevents leak through so that the moisture is contained within. Wearever makes these products with absorbency levels to suit users’ needs, including light, moderate and heavy absorbency.

Wearever’s Buster Brown Cotton Socks are made with 100 percent cotton and no elastics or synthetics for maximum comfort and durability. Wearever’s Buster Brown Loose Top Socks are made of acrylic, polyester and spandex for breathability and moisture wicking. These gentle socks help to maintain lower leg circulation, reduce swelling, and ensure all-day comfort. The sock line also includes a Cotton Knee High Sock ideal for all-day wear as well. Diabetes can cause poor circulation in the feet as well as skin irritation. Wearever’s Buster Brown socks are designed to improve comfort, promote healthy circulation, reduce binding, and help eliminate skin irritation.

“We’re honored to partner with Defeat Diabetes Foundation and help support its mission and shed light on some important issues and everyday struggles for those with diabetes,” said Bob Deerin, president and CEO of the Wearever brand.

To raise awareness about diabetes, early identification and the products available for diabetes management, Wearever will donate 10 percent of sales from men’s and women’s incontinence underwear lines as well as Wearever’s Buster Brown socks purchased on its website between Dec. 1 and 31, 2013. To learn more, purchase Wearever products or donate, please visit www.WeareverUS.com.

The Foundation maintains a website as a source of information for anyone interested in health and especially for "pre-diabetics" and diabetics that features content about diabetes, its complications and the importance of self-care.

WGWT Website Review!!


Are you ready to meet the digital version of going shopping with your best friend? There is a website you may want to see if you are into fashion or if you are the kind of person like Me, who has trouble piecing your wardrobe together to make a great ensemble. WGWT is a place where you can ask fashion questions, give outfit ideas and browse style inspiration. It's fun, bold and easy to use. Similar to Pinterest, you can download a fashion image and get recommendations from other users.I thought it was  a great idea and I wish I would have thought it up; but it gives users a chance to receive a second opinion about trendy fashion choices or not so trendy fashion statments. I found browsing through the website very easy and addictive. 

  • Don’t have the piece you would like recommendations for No problem!!! You can still upload the image to see what pieces of fashion may compliment it or if you should even shell out the cash at all to buy it.
  • Or just browse what others are saying about the current fashions. In some cases you can even purchase the ensembles you find most appealing with links straight to the items. 
  • Have you ever gone shopping with a friend, who might have suggested something you would never have thought of before? Maybe a new brand, a new way to dress down a jacket, or a new style?

From the Website: 
You will go out feeling like a different person, and sometimes, magic happens. You’re a new, fresh you - it feels like you’re walking in someone else’s shoes for a minute, and people notice. This is what is awesome about fashion. It’s a personal expression that reflects your personality, but, like any part of you, you can change at any time. We think, for the better.

We started What Goes With This? because we love shopping, love fashion, but hate to shop for clothes online. We wanted to bring friends together to talk fashion, recommend things, and make the world a more stylish place. We hope you enjoy being a part of our crew!
