Giveaway Fin Fun Mermaid Has a Limited Edition Tails Collection

FinFunEmilyMost girls I know have wanted to be a mermaid at some point in their life. There is something so magically beautiful about mermaids. When it comes to my daughter she has loved mermaids just about since the moment she could speak. When she was younger I could not pull her away from The Little Mermaid and I can remember watching it over and over and over with her. Our house is filled with stuffed mermaids of all shapes and sizes which have gotten many hours of play throughout the years. Though it all, Emm has always had a wish, she has always wanted a mermaid tail. When I knew this was something that was not going to just pass we searched all different brands of mermaid tails looking for one that actually looked like a real mermaid tail and also functioned in the water. We came upon Fin Fun Mermaid and immediately were awe struck. The mermaid tails are beautiful and they look just like real mermaid tails. Emm was googly eyed looking through all the tails on the site and finally came to a decision. We could not be any more happy with the look and quality of the Fin Fun Mermaid tail and bikini.FinFunEmily1

Recently we were reunited with Fin Fun Mermaid and got to talking about all things mermaid. I love how they stand behind their product. They not only sell tails, they help you to keep yourself or your little mermaid safe in the water. There are youtube videos on how to swim with your new tail. There is also a monofin available to buy that will give your mermaid tail the real feel. Let me tell you first hand that you need to be a very good swimmer to wear the tail. Even if you are a super swimmer you should watch the videos and check the site for suggestions and help. Do not just put the tail on and go in the water. The first time Emily used her mermaid tail in the pool we watched everything and still had my hubby and a noodle for help her out. Now, with saying that, once Emm became familiar with how to maneuver above and underwater and how to quickly get out of the tail she swims like a real mermaid. It’s amazing to see. Every time we go to a pool where they allow her to wear it she has a blast and she seems to amaze both children and adults in the area. More than a few times little kids have approached her to “talk” to a real mermaid. The mermaid tail is beyond adorable and for my daughter it’s a dream come true!

finfun7For mermaids who live “under the sea,” Fin Fun introduces two amazing fish-inspired mermaid tail designs to launch the new Limited Edition collection. These mermaid tails combine fantasy, fashion, and fun with swim-ability: perfect for anyone who has dreamed of being a mermaid. Fin Fun’s Limited Edition Mermaid Tails collection features exclusive premium quality fabric with brilliant 3D designs covered in a brand new shimmery fish-scale texture for a realistic scale appearance. The poly spandex material hugs the body and is comfortable to wear, yet resistant to the effects of the sun and pool materials. The two fish-inspired mermaid tails have the look of a real Blue Tang fish (a vibrant deep royal blue with yellow fins) and a Clownfish with its bright orange, white and black pattern. The open tail bottom makes it easy to get the monofin on and off, allows mermaids to walk, and avoids trapped air. Check out all things Fin Fun Mermaid here!

The patented Fin Fun Monofin (available for separate purchase) provides natural mermaid  motion for smooth swimming at the pool, lake or beach. The Monofin can be easily inserted into the bottom of the tail, and is designed for safety, comfort and performance while maintaining its mermaid shape. Flexible, durable polypropylene insert has a dive-grade neoprene cover that is buoyancy neutral and stays afloat. Feet are not strapped in, making removal of the  insert easy with just one tug and a kick. Mermaids can easily swim out of the spandex tail.

Precious Moments True Beauty Is Reflected From The Heart -Review and GiveawaypreciousmomentsLife Is Filled With Precious Moments. Each day is a gift in itself. Some days are good some days are not so good and some days are just precious. There are many precious moments in our lives that need to be celebrated. Recently I was invited to be an Ambassador Blogger for Precious Moments. I felt so proud and honored to be included into the fold of Precious Moments. My best friend has a huge collection for Precious Moments that she has collected throughout her life. They are so beautiful and with a glance she can see many of her life’s milestones on display throughout her house. As for me, I do have collected a few Precious Moments including the Bride & Groom, the graduate, First Holy Communion for my sons and more. Each one represents something very special in my life.

When the Precious Moments box arrived the other day I called my daughter immediately. She has never had her own figurine.  We opened the box together and there were many smiles. This figurine, Precious Moments- True Beauty Is Reflected From The Heart was about to be my daughter’s very first Precious Moments. She was beyond thrilled. Honestly, Precious Moments could not have chosen a better one to send me. Emily was born after me being a boymom for sixteen years, I kind of thought by that point there would not be a ballerina in our house. So, ballet is definitely is a Precious Moment in our family. The picture below is what I see when I look at the Precious Moments figurine. When I asked my daughter what it meant to her she told me it think about all of times she has danced and practiced ballet. I hope those memories will stay forever every time she looks at this beautiful figurine. It also brought back my own memories of my childhood and how much I loved ballet.ballerinaemily4

ballerinamommyFor nearly forty years Precious Moments has been creating gifts that celebrate caring, sharing, faith and love. Precious Moments offers an adorable figurine of a ballerina who demonstrates her poise and beauty. Beauty is found in confidence, compassion, determination, and so many other aspects that lie far deeper than the skin. As this diligent dancer practices her ballet positions at her barre, her beauty is not only reflected in the mirror, but from her heart as well. A graceful gift for anyone with an appreciation for ballet. Porcelain/Resin/Glass. 5 ¼” H. SRP: $55.99 http://www.preciousmoments.com/

peepseasterbasketcloseupEaster is a wonderful time in our house and for our family. We love spring and we love to celebrate the holidays with our family and friends. We spend Easter time baking and spending time with the family. When the bunny visits our house, he always leaves PEEPS®! It brings me right back to my childhood- remembering waking up Easter morning to running to see if the Easter Bunny left me some of those delicious little yellow chickies. Back then there was not a big variety of Peeps available. Now a days my children feast on Chocolate covered PEEPS® , flavored PEEPS®, Bunnies, and even Peeps plush!

peepseastercupcakesIn addition to bunny basket making, our family loves to create baked treats with our Peeps®. Every holiday we use them in a way that makes everyone happy that tests them out. This year we baked cupcake baskets and nests and adorned them with yellow Peeps® chicks. They are just regular yellow boxed cupcakes. We frosted them, put on some green sprinkles, added a few chocolate eggs and topped them off with chicks! The baskets we used some marshmallow twine. What do you think? I absolutely love the way they turned out. I also love that our family is making memories in the kitchen baking together and keeping Peeps® as part of our holiday tradition. That brings me back to my mom and I baking together and the cherished memories I have of those precious days. Hoping from the bottom of my heart that my children continue those same traditions with their own children some day. We love you Peeps®. Happy Easter!
