Umi Shoes are cool through the Summer! "Say-Goodbye-to-Spring-time Giveaway!"


It’s still Spring and I love all the Spring time fashions! We love Umi Children’s shoes for the Spring! They have so many stylish shoes for both boys and girls and the new fashions are “just really epic!” (according to my 9-year-old son).  But, they have shoes that will still be cool for the Summer! He received The Damian  in Blue Multi and he loves them! These are similar to traditional oxford sneakers but much cooler!  My son likes the really cool style and also how easy they are to put on. They have a  canvas upper with grippy rubber soles. My son says they are very comfortable!  These have been perfect for the Spring but would be great for summer too!  Retails for $40 on the Umi website.

We’re excited to announce that we have teamed up with Umi for a  “Say-Goodbye-to- Spring-time giveaway!” You can win a gift card to purchase boys or girls shoes! You must be a subscriber to enter!

Nudo Babbo Gift Box for Father’s Day! Giveaway!


The brand-new Babbo Gift Box from Nudo Italia , the company best known for its innovative Adopt-an-Olive Tree program, is a beautiful box set of four of Nudo’s hottest artisanal products made with fiery Sicilian chiles.

The perfect gift for any food-loving or heat-seeking dad, the Nudo Babbo Gift Box ($35) includes:

·      Extra Virgin Olive Oil with Sicilian Chiles (fantastic with steak and perfect for summer grilling)

·      Dark Chocolate Spread made with EVOO and chiles (a unique pairing of dark chocolate and spice — amazing in crepes or spread on cake )

·      Sicilian Dried Chiles (nicknamed “little red devils” for their intense heat)

·      Grow-Your-Own Chile Plant in a Tin (for the dads who’d rather to stay out of the kitchen).


And for the Dad who has everything, Nudo’s Adopt an Olive Tree program (starting at $69) allows you to give Dad a little piece of the Italian countryside.  Make him the proud papa of an orphan olive tree and he’ll get an official adoption certificate along with seasonal shipments of extra virgin olive oil from his very own tree throughout the year.
