The Pepper Kids

We just love unique furnishings and accessories for our kids.  There's just something cool about being unique with the things you choose to surround yourself with.  If you feel the same way, you really must go browse at 
The Pepper Kids!
Official sneak peek for next week's Back to School Giveaway Hop!


We were thrilled and honored to be sent an Oopsy Daisy Art Nightlight to review.  I really wasn't sure what to expect but this small piece of nightlight art was mesmerizing when I first opened the box!  I'll share with you one thing I love adore die for.... neat packaging.  Yep, this Nightlight for Kids was all packaged up in a unique sturdy little box with its own lid which I am sure I will use for paper crafting sooner or later.  But, I digress.

This fine art nightlight is a little masterpiece on a little canvas, attached to the light source all ready to plug into any outlet.  It very much looks like a finely crafted handmade item.  And it's a great functioning night light too which would be simply a fabulous addition to a nursery, Wall Art for Kids Rooms, child's bathroom, hallway or playroom.  We have it in the hallway which leads from the kitchen to the laundry room and it makes me smile each and every time I walk past.


Keep in mind that The Pepper Kids carries so many items it's an eye candy overload of shopping fun.  Furniture, decor, bedding, school goodies, art, fun as well as practical stuff for mommies; I could go on and on but I will let you check it out for yourself.  Oh, and if you are wondering why the name "The Pepper Kids" it is based on an Asian tradition in which peppercorn packs are added under the children's pillows when they sleep at night to protect children — a timeless symbol of good fortune, love and appreciation.  Amazing and sweet.

Dorm Trunks and C&N Footlockers

This is an exclusive review and sneak peek for the upcoming Back to School Giveaway Hop next week!  Be sure to check out the bonus at the end of this post.  

Please let us introduce you to DormTrunks.com!!



If you have a tween or teen, a good solid footlocker is a blessing for many reasons.  Where do you attractively store all those video games and books?  Maybe your kids head off to summer camp every year with less than perfect solutions for their belongings.  Perhaps they're getting ready for college and need someplace safe to stash their valuables and electronics.  This is exactly what happened to us a few years ago.


Our oldest son was headed to college and wanted to take all of his expensive electronics with him.  I was less than thrilled.  After searching the web for solutions, we found C&N Footlockers and were intrigued.  Not only was the footlocker built to last and a billion times more solid than anything like it you could find locally, it provides extra seating.  Bonus!!  We purchased our son a Companion Footlocker in black with an Anchoring Cable so it could be locked and secured to his bed at his college apartment.  Today, he is married and uses the footlocker for blankets in his home and it's lovely.  It will certainly last the test of time and his children will be able to use that footlocker.


We were sent the Happy Camper Footlocker in Light Blue to review.  Let me tell you, it does not disappoint!  All the footlockers at DormTrunks.com are built with 3/8" solid aspen plywood.  Yes, wood!  Not some thick cardboard or paper board product.  The outside is steel with a scratch-resistant baked enamel finish.  Can you believe it?  Steel and wood.  Honestly, this thing is one sturdy puppy.


 The color is consistently the same and not darker on top.  Silly shadows!

Additional features include:
  • Water Resistant and Tear Proof Interior Liner
  • A Lifetime Warranty
  • 20 color choices including everything from Hot Pink and Lime Green to Olive Drab and Chocolate. 
  • Included Divided Nylon Glide and Go Tray
  • Can be personalized and decorated with stickers and paint if you want.
  • World Class Customer Service
  • Sturdy metal handles, hinges, corners, hasp and details.

 
There really is just not a footlocker out there that compares to the C&N Footlockers at DormTrunks.com, they truly are amazing.  We encourage you to visit them and see what they have to offer.  Read the reviews, you'll be sold!!
