Ok, y’all. You KNOW I’m always here to tell you the most wonderful gifts to give to others, or to yourself. Mother’s Day is coming up SO SOON, and I’m surrounded by mothers. I have myself, of course, my mom, two sisters, a sister-in-law, two mothers-in-law, one grandmother, and a bunch of wonderful friends. I feel completely ready to tell you the perfect gift now.

Picture Keeper Connect.

What items do moms cherish most? Photos of their loved ones! I don’t know about you, but I have hundreds upon thousands of photos that accumulate on my phone, and all other devices. Picture Keeper Connect allows you to store photos safely – to allow more space on all of your devices. If you don’t have storage, WiFi or data, that’s not a problem – because Picture Keeper Connect works anywhere. And because your files aren’t stored online, you maintain control of your photos.

So what is it? It’s a memory device that allows users to backup files from their mobile phones, tablets, and computers. When it’s plugged into a phone, the USB drive copies photos, videos, and contacts from your phone to the device. When it’s plugged into a PC/Mac, Picture Keeper Connect will find and save photos and photos from your computer to the device – and it will skip duplicates. Also, Connect For Mobile uses a free app – available on the App Store and Google Play.

Spring Nursery Essentials

This review was made possible by iConnect and Luvs. I was provided compensation to facilitate this post, but all opinions stated are 100% mine.

Spring is here, and are you building or decorating a nursery for your baby? Stock up on the spring nursery essentials and save with #coupon #ShareTheLuv #ad

The packaging has changed, but one thing that hasn’t changed for me is seeing Luvs diapers in my home! My parents always used them for the five of us, and my mom kept the boxes for decades to store baby clothes. I can still picture them!

And now it’s more like this:

spring nursery essentials

Spring is here (or still on its way if you live in New England like I do) and we’re doing renovations on our house. It’s so exciting that I can’t stop thinking about it and grinning from ear to ear. That said, it’s a true question whether we’re going to add a nursery to our house. Scarlet and Des share a room and are about ready to branch off. Des stopped sleeping in a crib and will outgrow his toddler bed soon. Their bedroom doesn’t have room for another bed, so we’re going to give him a whole new room. While we’re at it, we might be giving ourselves a whole new master suite and a nursery/future reading room for all.

I haven’t put together a nursery in ages, and I think it’s pretty cool that it will all be different if/when it happens again. My mom helped us last time and this time, we would have two other helpers – Scarlet and Des. I think about it pretty much every day, and I thought I’d share some spring nursery essentials from this seasoned mom. Whether you’re building a nursery from scratch, decorating or redecorating one, or just want to get your nursery ready for spring, are are five nursery essentials.

1 – A simple crib. We searched for a crib that would be simple in design, to match anything, and that could convert into a toddler bed. We have used it twice now, although it won’t be used again. What’s important is to have something safe.

2 – A glider or rocking chair. Like with the crib, we’ve used one for both kids. Unlike the crib, we will re-use it. I still use it to read to my children! Oh, the warm nights we have spent in the glider! I wouldn’t trade them for anything.

3 – A diaper pail. This is a handy place to toss dirty diapers, and there are several designed to seal off odors and keep the baby’s nursery sanitary and clean for the upcoming warmer days! It saves you time running to the trash.

4 – Spring clothes for your baby, and a clothes hamper, AND a tidy way to arrange the clothes. I really like the open baskets, and storage cubes in the closest. That has served us well over the years!

5 – Diapers and diapering supplies. A diaper changing station is pretty important. We have a changing table over and under open shelving, and also above a chest of drawers. That way we can store diapers in several sizes (they outgrow them fast), as well as necessary creams, lotions, hand sanitizer, and other items. We have Luvs – the official diaper of experienced moms.

Luvs is sharing the love this month and giving you the chance to save on diapers with a $2 print-at-home coupon offer. Luvs are softer and more absorbent than ever before, with large stretch tabs for easy fastening, ultra-leakage protection and a money-back guarantee. Did you know that Luvs Ultra Leakguards with NightLock Plus™ provide the high-quality features that babies and parents need, but for less than premium brands? The diapers lock away wetness and absorb even more than regular Luvs. They are available in sizes newborn through 6, with fun designs on every pack – wherever Luvs Diapers are sold!

AND, their contoured shape hugs baby for a great fit and a super soft cottony material – gentle on baby’s skin. Here is a $2 off Luvs diapers coupon! Print it at home and use it at any mass, discount or grocery store where Luvs Diapers are sold!
