Personal Fashion for Girls with Kidpik

Have you seen all the different subscription boxes out there right now? There’s one for adult fashions, make-up, shaving stuff for men, food boxes…there is literally a subscription box for just about anything! Now there is a personal fashion for girls subscription box, courtesy of Kidpik! If you’re like me, you dread going shopping with your daughter. They all have their own personal style, which is fine, but it is never the same as yours. So everything you show them doesn’t work for them. Even when you think you’ve outsmarted them and started saying, “oh this is ugly”…just to get them to say they like it, they figure you out and tell you they don’t like it either. You can never win. Sound familiar? If so, or if you really like subscription boxes, then you need to keep on reading to find out more about Kidpik!

*I received one Kidpik box for the purpose of this post. All opinions are 100% my own*

About Kidpik, Personal Fashion for Girls

Kidpik takes the luxury of personal styling and combines it with the convenience of home shopping to deliver girls, sizes 4-14, a box of clothes that is tailored to your budget! If that doesn’t sound good enough, you also get free shipping, free styling and free membership…all part of your no commitment Kidpik experience! Doesn’t it sound great? I know I would prefer getting the latest fashions for girls delivered right to my door without having to drag my daughter through the mall!!

So how does Kidpik know what to package up for your daughter? 

Once you sign-up at the Kidpik website, you and your daughter take a little survey. The survey has you choose the following:

  • Your daughters name and birthday
  • Where you live
  • Favorite go-to style (dresses, skirts, pants, shorts, etc)
  • Favorite and non-favorite colors
  • Prints she wears
  • Shirt size, skirt/pant size, and shoe size
  • Favorite style jeans
  • Preferred dress and skirt length

Once you answer all of those questions, the survey continues with images of different outfits that your daughter can select as types of outfits she likes. Kidpik also asks, on a scale of 1-10, how sparkly she is. The very last question is a list of stores for you to choose where you like to shop.

All of the answers to these questions helps the wonderful Kidpik stylists put together the best box for your daughter. Did they get it right? See for yourself!

She truly loved everything! Especially the lime green sunglasses and the little patches that were in the little pouches I had her set aside! If, in the off chance that something was just not for her or didn’t fit, you just send it back! Each box comes with a postage paid envelop to mail back the items that you do not want. Within seven days of receiving the items, log into your account and check off the items you wish to keep. If you would like to keep the entire box, you will receive 30% off the entire box! Bella loved the superstar outfit so much she decided to wear it that night to dinner!

Each Kidpik personal fashion for girls box costs approximately $70-$100. With absolutely zero commitment, this is an excellent solution for moms and daughters to be exposed to new things. Not to mention, I don’t know about your daughters, but if someone else told her something looked nice, then she’d wear it. It truly is a win win situation!

Noise Canceling Headphones – Why You Need Them

Picture this…you and your husband share an office. Your husband is extremely loud when he talks on the phone (sometimes on speaker…so annoying). It’s to the point that you cannot concentrate, no matter how hard you try. Something has to be done, but what. You tried wearing your headphones that came with your iPhone, but no matter how loud you turn the music up, you can drown the noise out. And then a thought hit you! You need noise canceling headphones! Don’t those sound amazing?? Guess what…they are!

Last year, my husband got me the best birthday present ever! He got me a Kindle Paperwhite. I use this Kindle EVERY single day. It’s always in my purse. I honestly thought there was no way he would ever be able to top that gift. There are very few things I want that he could buy…more time together as a family is my number one want. However, after complaining non-stop about how loud he is when I am trying to work, he asked me if I wanted a pair of noise canceling headphones. My ears perked up at that idea. The idea of being able to effectively tune out all the noise around me…priceless! So we started looking at them. I was down to two pairs. The Bose QuietComfort 25noise canceling headphones and the Beats Executive Over-Ear Headphonesnoise canceling headphones. It was a really hard decision. We spent FOREVER at Best Buy trying all the different pairs on, but I finally went with the Bose QuietComfort 25 Acoustic Noise Canceling Headphones. They were WAY more comfortable and they canceled out more noise than the Beats did. I did try out the in ear noise canceling headphones and to me, they weren’t that comfortable. They did work well, however.

Why Noise Canceling Headphones?

Let me tell you…this really is the best gift ever. I use them every single day. They are a bit more expensive than the Beats that I was looking at, but the cost was worth it. Just the short time I was wearing the Beats at Best Buy, they became uncomfortable. The Bose Noise Canceling Headphones can be worn all day long and not really feel like I am wearing anything at all!

So if you are looking for a gift for your spouse for either Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, a birthday, anniversary or just because, then you really want to check out the Bose QuietComfort 25noise canceling headphones. The sound quality and comfort is truly amazing. If I’m not listening to the 90’s channel on Pandora, then I am listening to my new favorite channel, the Classical Goes Pop channel. It’s relaxing and I can really focus when I’m listening to that channel!

Unique Gift Idea from Canvas People

When I give a gift, I put a lot of thought into it. I am always on the lookout for a unique gift idea. Sure I could run to the store and pick up a gift card and that would make things WAY easier, but it’s really not unique or different. If I can add a picture or a quote to the gift, that makes it even better (it’s the scrapbooker coming out in me). Canvas People offer this unique gift idea with their new Canvas Creations. There is definitely an option for everyone on your gift giving list! Even toddlers! They have an awesome super hero canvas that you have to check out! If my kids were younger, I would totally get that for them!

*I was provided with a Canvas Creation for the purpose of this post. All opinions are 100% my own*

As I scrolled through all the different Canvas Creations, I couldn’t help and think about the unique gift ideas for kids, moms, dads, graduations…the possibilities are endless! I had a hard time narrowing it down to the canvas I wanted. At first I wanted to use a picture of my kids that is my absolute favorite from a few years ago. I almost went with that idea, but then I came across one that I HAD to make for my daughters room.

unique gift idea

Remember I said I liked quotes?!? Be You. That right there is my daughter 100%. She likes what she likes; says what she says; and does what she does because SHE wants to and for no other reason. Not only do I want her to continue to grow up with that mindset (maybe with a little less sass!), but I want her to wholeheartedly believe that last part of that quote, as well.

Don’t forget Mother’s Day! There are a lot of unique gift ideas for mom available! If you are planning on ordering one for Mother’s Day, you need to order by April 29th 11:59 am PST in order to get it in time. How would you like to receive 80% off all canvas sizes (Canvas Creations and photo to canvas product)? I bet you said yes! The nice folks at Canvas People are giving you all 80% off. All you need to do is click on any one of the links in this post and order! That’s it! It’s such a great deal! Each Canvas Creations is $99.95. If you take 80% off that price and add in the $19.95 shipping, your total Canvas Creations is $39.95!! Please note that the shadow canvases are not included in this deal. Don’t let this unique gift idea slip away!

Label Daddy Labels for Summer Camp

At the end of the summer, Bella will be heading to a sleep-away summer camp. She went last year and had a blast. One thing that was rather tedious was labeling all of her clothes and gear.

*For posting this amazing information, I received a Label Daddy code*
