In Need of Tips and Hints!

Hi everyone! I know I've already said my goal this summer is to create a prettier blog but there is a second part to that. I'ld really like to start doing reviews for maternity clothes, children's items, home goods. You name it. Along with that I'ld also really like to start doing some giveaways. Any advice you can give me on contacting companies and also on getting started would be great!

As for better late than never news if your little one is in need of new kicks check out Isabooties. They are absolutely adorable and an eco friendly company to boot. Plus for every pair of shoes you purchase until tomorrow a pair will be donated to a child in need! This may be a great excuse to tell the hubs if you happen to order more than your share.

AND for my big news! My c-section date has been scheduled for July 29th! The fact that this is less than 6 weeks away is both thrilling and terrifying all at once. I was apprehensive the first time around but the state of ignorant bliss at the time did wonders for the situation. Knowing what's to come is completely nerve racking! So to Andrea and Lori PLEEEEEEASE keep your updates coming about how well things are going 'cause they definatley set my mind at ease!

Hey! I can definitely give you some advice on starting to do reviews, etc...but it'd be a really long comment if I posted it all here! So, if you want, just email me at andraya3 at yahoo dot com and I'll email you a nice, looooong email about reviews, etc. haha. ;) And I'm glad to hear that Lori and I are at least making you feel a bit more brave about having two kids...I honestly do not find it very hard at all...a lot busier at times, but that's to be expected. :)

Wow! How exciting!

As for reviews, I suggest contacting places that you'd like to try products or new companies as well as companies you personally already love. Most websites have a contact page- just send them an honest email letting them know your intentions and ask if they would like to submit a product for review and/or giveaway!

I just contact companies directly and really try to personalize the email. I let them know who I am and about my Blog... Good luck with it... I contacted about 40 companies within the past 2 days because I want to start doing giveaways too!!

I think the above comments pretty much summed it up. Andrea helped me when I was first starting out.
