Review and Raffle Giveaway | Green Valley Fraser-Fir Christmas Wreath

It's raffle time again!! (Raffle is open to US addresses only)

Have you heard about Green Valley Christmas Trees?  The are the leading retailer of premium, farm grown Christmas trees.   Yes, they're fresh from the farm and whey they approached me if I wanted to do a review and run a raffle for their Fraser-Fir Wreath, I immediately said yes to it!
Visit their website here and don't forget to join the raffle giveaway down at the bottom of this post.

They sent me a 20" Plain Fraser-Fir Christmas Wreath.  It arrived in a large box, very well wrapped, when I opened it, it smelled so good and holiday-like smell.  
I am very happy because they are truly true to their product description.


Description from their website:

18-20 Inch Fraser Fir Wreath
The 18 - 20 Inch Fraser Fir Christmas wreath uses one of the most popular trees in North America for its foliage and is often seen adorning the area above the fireplace, doors and windows. Filling your home with the aroma of the season, its fresh, fir scent is one of its most favored features. The colors of the needles diverge, from light green at its very tip to a darker green at the branch are accented with silver-white bands on the underside, giving this Christmas wreath sumptuous texture and depth.

This Christmas wreath with its natural, vivacious colors and plush, thick foliage will endure the whole season as they decorate your home or office.

Superior needle retention and heady holiday aroma are what best separates Fraser Fir Christmas wreaths from other types. The foliage for your wreath will be gathered, created and shipped all in the same day to allow you utmost enjoyment of its freshness and fragrance possible throughout the whole Christmas season.

 I hang it in my entryway and it immediately filled the space with a very sweet holiday fragrance.

I also love how the branches are accented with silver-white bands on the underside.

Since it was just plain and the foliage is very thick, I decided to spruce it up by adding some snowflakes ornaments.
With little to no effort, the wreath was filled with snowflakes ornaments.
The white snowflakes definitely accentuated the silver-white bands on the branches.

With that, our entryway is now just ready for Christmas, it is also smelling Christmas.
I am truly thrilled to be able to review this product and experience to have it my home.

Thank you very much Green Valley Christmas Trees for collaborating with me and for trusting me and my little blog.  I hope to work with you more in the future!

Disclosure: I received the above mentioned Green Valley Christmas Trees product to try in order for me to facilitate the review.  However, everything that this post contains are my own genuine experience/opinion.

Not too long ago, Great Lakes Proud contacted me to do a review and run a raffle for them.  Of course, I said YES! 

I requested for their Great Lakes Proud Original Soft Tee, because of my curiosity as to how soft this shirt really is.  Then the pink hat for me but my daughter wanted to model it.

When the package arrived, we were so thrilled to open it!  Eventhough the hat is for me or my size - there is an option at the back of it, to adjust it to fit the head of the person wearing it.

Since my daughter insisted on modeling it, I was not disappointed at all because she totally rock it!!!   

She even involved her unicorn in the photo shoot to match the pink hat.
Now on to the Great Lakes Proud Original Soft Tee.  I mean...you have to believe me - it is the softest shirt I have ever touched!  

They were not kidding at all ♥  The Mr. totally love the shirt and he also agreed with me on how soft it is.

Review | Sammy Dress

Not too long ago, I was approached by Sammy Dress and was asked if I could do a review for their product.  I immediately jumped into their website because Sammy Dress is not new to me, I've ordered a dress in the past and I really love it!

I was hoping for a matching outfit for my daughter and I, but that did not really worked out.

So instead of going for a  mommy-daughter matching outfit, we decided to go for just my daughter's.
I was looking for a long-sleeve dress that my daughter can wear over a leggings, appropriate for fall weather.  

So this dress (ordered size 100) was really perfect when I saw it on Sammy Dress website, if you're interested here's the link HERE.
There is always an apprehension in me when ordering online from outside the US because sometimes they look good on photos but they're not in person.

Fortunately, that wasn't the case here.

When the package arrived, I was so excited to unwrap it and see the actual product.  Very stylish for a kids' dress!  I am actually very impressed ♥

She wore it with leggings under and a brown boots.
My daughter especially love the sheep in the front of the dress.
While I am smitten with the side pockets of this dress.  I usually like having pockets in my own dresses, so it was super cute to have this dress with pockets.
The stripes detail on the sleeves and on the sides the runs towards the back of the dress is really cute in person, it's actually a little stretchy.  Very thoughtfully made.
The red material is made of cotton, very soft and thick enough for fall weather.

It runs big, the size I ordered is 100 and supposedly 3T (US), my daughter is 4 and will turn 5 in December.  She normally wears size 4 and 5 US on dresses.

Overall, this dress for under $20 is definitely a score!  My daughter and I both love it!  She's actually going to wear this dress to her 5th birthday♥

Thank you very much Sammy Dress for collaborating with me and for trusting me and my little blog.  I hope to work with you more in the future!

Ps:  My daughter and I had so much fun doing this photo shoot!  She even said "Mommy, I like spending time with you".  While she was there walking, running and playing, I was just snapping pictures.  Here's a little collage that I made with those special moments.  I am looking forward on working with my little lovely model again!
