Springfield Dolls and Clothes – 2015 Holiday Gift Guide

2015-Holiday-Gift-Guide

How many of you have little girls that love dolls? When Bella was a lot younger, she became obsessed with dolls. Which…I have to admit, it was pretty funny to me. You see, Bella was such a little Tomboy (still kind of is!), but the one “girly” thing she liked was dolls. She had so many dolls that we used to joke that her little bedroom was like a doll orphanage! Her favorite doll was one that closed its eyes automatically when you lay it down. She loved that it actually went to sleep! If your little girl is like mine, you’ll want to get her one of the adorable 18″ Springfield Dolls!

2015 Holiday Gift Guide – Logo Loops LLC

2015-Holiday-Gift-Guide

My daughter is my twin. Not only does she look like me, but her personality is so much like me that, at times, it’s kind of freaky! She loves wearing t-shirts with funny sayings on them, especially if those funny sayings are sarcastic! If she could, she would wear her hair pulled up in a ponytail, with a headband, ever single day. She calls this look her “Goalie” look.

*I received the following headband for the purpose of this review. All opinions and stories are 100% my own*

Ever since she found this love for headbands, I have been on a mission to get her headbands she would wear. Anything to keep her hair out of her eyes! When I found out about Logo Loops Headbands, I couldn’t wait to try them out for Bella. Each headband is made of 90% cotton and 10% Lycra. This means they will hold their shape and fit snugly, keeping all of those little flyaway’s away from the eyes and face! If…no when…they get dirty, just toss them in the washing machine (cold water) and then toss them in the dryer!

When I saw the headband pictured above, I knew that my soccer goalie daughter had to have this one! The fact that it came in lime green (her favorite color) was a huge bonus! We’ve already picked out a few more that we like! I know what I will be picking up for Bella’s stocking this Christmas!

Each Logo Loops headband retails for $13.99. You can purchase them online or search for a store near you that sells them!!

2015 Holiday Gift Guide – Operation ResCUTE

2015-Holiday-Gift-Guide

Shopping for the holiday season can be stressful. The one thing I try to do is make lists of all the people I want to shop for and put down an idea or two for that person. I also have a few birthday’s to shop for in December, as well, so I also make sure to make note of that on my lists. I’d love to say I have it all together, but more times than not, I forget to buy a gift (or two) and I am out on Christmas Eve trying to pick something up. Talk about stressful! One person I find very easy to shop for is my daughter. She loves anything and everything about animals. That’s why I know that this first item in the holiday gift guide, Operation ResCUTE would be perfect for her!

Like I said, my daughter is the ultimate animal lover. If she could adopt every single animal, she would. When I heard about Operation ResCUTE, I knew this was something that she would absolutely love. The Story of Jingles is the first book in the Operation ResCUTE series. It’s about a little dog named Jingles and the journey that dog took before being adopted. Kids get invested in the story because it is written from the dog’s point of view. At the end of the story, you will find an Operation ResCUTE Membership Club sticker!

About Operation ResCUTE

Founded in 2014 by Laurie Brown-Nagin, 100% of Operation ResCUTE profits go directly toward helping shelter dogs get adopted. A life-long animal activist, Brown-Nagin has always been passionate about the protection and safety of animals. Inspired by the younger generations, Brown-Nagin set out to sift the conversation away from store-bought animals and empower young children to understand the benefits of adopting and how they, though young, can make a difference.

Personally, I think this is absolutely adorable! Also, if you have adopted a shelter pet, owners are encouraged to submit their shelter dogs picture, along with a detailed description of their own rescue story…your dog could become the next ResCUTE pet! How cool is that?!? The next Operation ResCUTE dog was picked in this way and The Story of Tanner is to launch during the holidays!

Just look at that face! So what do you say…head on over to the Operation ResCUTE website and order one of these adorable gift sets today! Become a ResCUTER! Remember, 100% of the proceeds of every sale is donated directly to shelters to help the animals waiting to find their forever home! This would make a great holiday gift! Also, don’t forget to send in pictures and stories about the dogs you rescued! You never know when your puppy could become the next Operation ResCute!
