Sugoi Kids: Any Item Under $30 Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the lucky winner ~ Xenia #3!

If you're looking for an upscale online children's boutique, you must check out Sugoi Kids. I was very pleased with their customer service and quality of clothing. Plus, there is a flat USA shipping rate of $5. That's a great deal.

Offering all of the top European and American boutique brands at a fraction of the price! Everything site wide is 40-70% BELOW retail, helping you save time and money. One stop shop...

The LIV + CO Pink Cap Sleeve Dress is really cute. I love the pink and grey color combination. The sweet lace detailing is lovely, too. This looks really sweet on. The tag says to tumble dry, but I highly recommend laying this flat to dry. Not only will that help preserve the dress itself, but it will prevent any shrinking.

The SAVE THE QUEEN CIRCUS Ruffle Tank Top is a fantastic addition to any wardrobe. The layered ruffles on the front are adorable. This top is made from 95% cotton 5% elastane.

One lucky reader will win the item of their choice under $30 from Sugoi Kids!

CostumeSupercenter.com: Wholesale Costume Club One Year Membership Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the lucky winner ~ Laureen #6!
I know it's the end of June and Halloween is still months away. However, when I was given the opportunity to receive a costume from CostumeSupercenter.com for a review, I jumped at the opportunity. I mean, why not have it all done now and forget the stress of finding it later?!? I'll thank myself later.



I was sent this really cute Junior Airline Pilot costume. I was impressed with its quality and attention to detail. It comes with the jacket, hat, tie with handy clip and aviator sunglasses -which happened to be my favorite part.

You'll have to provide your own pants and shirt, but that should be easy to find.

If you're searching for a costume, check out their website. They obviously have a TON!

One lucky reader will receive a one year membership to their new sister site - Wholesale Costume Club.

Softlips: 100% Natural Lip Care Line Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the lucky winner ~ Edyta #238!

Softlips is making my lips feel like a million bucks! Their new PURE 100% Natural line is wonderful. It includes lip glosses, tinted lip balms, lip butter and a lip polish. Not only is it made from 100% natural ingredients, but it also has a very nice fruity flavor. I also love the fact that they are free from preservatives, phthalates, sulfates, parabens, mineral oil and gluten.

I was able to try out their entire line. The Softlips PURE 100% Natural Lip Gloss and Lip Tint provides SPF15 which is great for the summer season. The effect is either a natural glossy color with shine or sheer tinted color. The lip tint (suggested retail price of $3.99) and lip gloss (suggested retail price of $5.99) are available in three really nice shades - Coral Charm, Natural Honesty, and Shell Pink. The natural shades looked best on me.


If you're looking for just an all over shine without color, their Softlips PURE 100% Natural Lip Butter is the way to go. You get a hint of shine with SPF 15 (suggested retail price of $5.99).

I really liked the Softlips PURE 100% Natural Lip Polish. It provided a natural exfoliation for my lips with organic coconut flakes and sugar. This left my lips feeling super soft and healthy (suggested retail price of $5.99).

You can find Softlips® PURE 100% Natural lip care products in the Naturals/Organic section at Target stores nationwide.

One lucky winner will receive the entire Softlips PURE 100% Naturals line!

Smitten NYC: Any Item Under $100 Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the lucky winner ~ Autumn H #200!
I have found a new clothing company that I just love. Let me introduce you to Smitten NYC. They offer a very stylish and wearable line of clothing for women.

I love so many of their items and think they're style is really comfortable and chic.


I received their Top with Geometric Stones for this review. It has a great feel to it as it's made from 100% tencel . The sparkly black stones add just the right amount of shine without being too much for the eye.

The easy to wear style falls nicely on the body. It doesn't hug too tight, but it still provides a nice silhouette. This top is great for dressy occasions or to wear with a comfy pair of jeans. I love the versatility.

One lucky reader will have the chance to choose any item under $100 from this company!

Smith & Vandiver: Dino Bubbles Sample to the first 100 readers!

The Good Clean Fun Ducky Bubbles from Smith & Vandiver were a real treat for my daughter. She loves her bubble baths and these were extra fun. The cute (and green) packaging really did the trick. I love the chemical and irritation-free formula that is gentle for young delicate skin.

The fruity vanilla-melon scent smelled delicious and knowing that this contains no toxic sulfates or dioxanes is a major plus. You really do have to watch everything that surrounds your children - even their bubble bath!

Another fun bath product is their Good Clean Fun Dino Fizz Apatosaurus. And as each egg dissolves, a baby dinosaur "hatches" and floats to the surface. How cool is that?! My daughter got a kick out of this awesome, and more importantly safe for her, egg.

Be sure to take advantage of this great offer! The first 100 Funky Monkey readers to join Smith & Vandiver on their home page will receive a free sample of Dino Bubbles! Click here to sign up!

Seventh Generation is committed to becoming the world's most trusted brand of authentic, safe, and environmentally-responsible products for a healthy home.

Guidecraft: Kids Woodscape Table & Chair Set Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the lucky winner ~ pixie13 #400!

I have one word that sums up Guidecraft - QUALITY. I knew I was in for a real treat right from the beginning. After visiting their website, I could tell that this was a company who takes pride in their products and customer service.

I was thrilled when the boxes from Guidecraft arrived at my doorstep! In them were their Woodscape Table and Woodscape Chairs (Set of 2). I could not wait to get them open to check out the contents inside.

Be sure to double click the images for a closer look.

The table was organized very nicely inside the box. It was padded, wrapped and protected. It was surrounded by styrofoam and neatly packed. Inside included the tabletop, four legs and box of hardware.

My husband was very impressed with the quality of the hardware. When the hardware is good, you know that the product itself will be of equal quality. It came with an allen wrench which is the only tool required to assemble. The hardware was organized and my husband knew from first glance just how to put the table together. There was no second guessing.

The chairs came fully assembled which was very nice! As you can see from the photo, they were fully protected during shipping.

The two chairs were stacked on top of each other in one box.

The packaging speaks for itself. They arrived in immaculate condition.

Drumroll please.....

Just look at this photo of the table and chairs in our playroom. It's the first thing you notice when you walk in the room. It's such an attractive set.

The table is very sturdy. It doesn't wobble and stands strong. It measures 24" h x 24" w x 32" l and weighs 17 lbs. It is constructed of birch solids and veneers and features a simple design with clean lines.

The chairs feature a nice curved edge. The end of the chair doesn't cut into the legs and provides a very comfortable feel.

They are also light enough in weight that my 6 and 8 year old can move them with ease. However don't let the weight fool you, they are not flimsy at all. These chairs are constructed extremely well and provide nice support.

This table and chair set is the perfect size for my 6 and 8 year old. It couldn't be any better height wise.

As you can see the tabletop provides enough space for containers, books and puzzles. Both of my kids can sit here and have enough room for both of their activities. My son and daughter love it to pieces and it provides them a nice place to sit and have fun.

I look forward to them being able to use this when doing homework once school starts up again.

This set is recommended for ages 7+ according to Guidecraft's website. I can already tell that this will last through many, many years of enjoyment.

I highly recommend this set if you're looking for quality furniture for your kids. It's absolutely phenomenal.

How can you not love this?!? Lucky for you, one reader will win this Kids Woodscape Table & Chair Set!
