Celebrate the Arrival of Spring with Fairytale Brownies & Giveaway

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.


I just looked at the upcoming month of March and I was so happy to see one day coming up: SPRING! Winter is always really long and cold, especially here in Minnesota so every year spring's arrival is definitely worth celebrating! This year, celebrate with me and welcome spring with treats for the whole family or office from Fairytale Brownies! Fairytale Brownies has introduced cute new packaging options for spring 2015 and their brownies are seriously TO. DIE. FOR. 


Fairytale Brownies has been baking brownies since 1992. Every batch is made by hand using a secret family recipe. The brownies, cookies and bars are all natural, baked with the finest ingredients such as dark chocolate, farm fresh eggs, pure creamery butter, and dark brown sugar. Each brownie, cookie and bar is individually wrapped and certified kosher dairy.


I am celebrating spring's arrival with the delicious morsels from Fairytale Brownies. They are the perfect size for a little indulgence but won't break my diet!


Delicious, bite-size Magic Morsels are a tasteful temptation for small and large gatherings at the office and at home. This assortment is lovingly packed in a classic gift box and wrapped with a festive Happy Spring gift band.


So  make sure this spring you celebrate its arrival with a Fairytale gift wrapped with a Happy Spring band. As the sun peeks out behind a rain cloud and creates a colorful rainbow, the Fairytale Brownie Guy, donned with galoshes and umbrella, dances in the rain on a sprouting leaf among the purple dragonflies. The gift band is available on any gift packaged in Fairytale’s classic brown gift box.

The Renegade also utilizes a deep, flexible pocket and Velcro straps for the perfect fit. This glove fits like, well, a glove! :) I am so excited to start playing softball again and make some great catches with this glove!

This glove is also a bigger size like I like and I love that!

SOFI Organizational System

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

Spring is right around the corner (even if it doesn’t feel like it quite yet) and that might mean that your annual Spring Cleaning is creeping into your mind!

I know it is in our house and we have already started thanks to the help of the new SOFI organizational system!

The new SOFI™ line offers an essential, style-smart organizational system designed to make spaces work the way you live.


The SOFI line has so many great, functional products and they have absolutely helped transform our toy closet into something I can actually stand to look at!

This spring, functional SOFI products can also help you organize your closet with unique and cleverly designed product features:

· The versatile Brix Box™ is easily accessible with pull-out handles and open tops

· Zipper accents on the Zipper Tote™ allow for quick access to clothes and accessories

· The Stax Shelf™ makes the most of your vertical space to maximize storage

· Hex Boxes are perfect for drawers, nightstands and dressers to store jewelry, socks, and other small trinkets that can be easily lost

· Angled sides on the Rax Bin™ are ideal for at-a-glance access to purses, hats and footwear



In addition to great selection of storage options, they are also environmentally friendly: all SOFI™ Boxes, Bins and Totes are made from a minimum of 65% recycled content!

I love the simple but sophisticated features they all have:

· Simple and soft geometric forms with rounded corners

· Gold fasteners and zipper accents

· Woven handle materials reinforced wit h fashionable brass rivets

· Stain-guard protected silken textured exterior coupled with a fun, geometric print interior

· Sophisticated color palette of mocha exterior complimented with a lavender-grey interior


We recently moved into a new house and the last room we really need to organize is our toy room and the closet that holds all the toys. As you can see in the BEFORE picture below, it was a MESS before! There were boxes everywhere, toys just thrown in, and no organization whatsoever! It drove me crazy!!!!

BEFORE:


My husband and I decided to take one night after the kids went to bed and devote it to organizing this closet and room! We were truthfully dreading it because our kids have way too many toys (can't wait for our garage sale this summer!) but thanks to our new SOFI organizational boxes, bins and totes I knew it would look and BE a whole lot more organized after we used them in the closet!

It took us a good while, but we finally got everything organized and nicely put into the SOFI products and on the shelf! The closet looks so much neater, organized and the kids can actually find and play with the toys now! I am so glad we tackled this project and used our new SOFI organizers! They were lifesavers!

AFTER

Buy It: 

You can purchase SOFI products in a variety of styles from Amazon.com with retail prices ranging from $9.99 to $29.99
