UPDATE 11/12/10 Winner of the Fresh Produce cardigan is... Jay! Congratulations and check your email.


Raise your hand if you have NOT heard of Fresh Produce clothing?

{hand raised}

Because apparently I'm the ONLY person in my little world to have not heard of them.

But I have now.
And I LOVE them.

Fresh Produce Sportswear Looks and Feels sooo Good

Fresh Produce approached me to review some of their clothing and while the season seemed off (seems like warm weather beach wear) I agreed because I have a little 40th birthday trip planned... to MEXICO!

Oops - did I just date myself? Oh well.

They sent me...

This fabulous wrap dress

Fresh Produce Cafe Wrap dress perfect for vacationSuch a perfect dress! The style is very flattering and the fabric is lightweight and doesn't seem to wrinkle which is great for travel. They sent me one in the sangria (pink) color and I love love love. I can't wait to wear it out shopping or to dinner. It would make an elegant cover-up for the beach, no?  I'm going to end my sentences now with 'no?' because it's very international


Three letters: O. M. G.

The folks at Fresh Produce also sent me this unbelievably gorgeous and PERFECT cardigan

Fresh Produce Crystal Cove Cardigan is frilly and fun

The Crystal Cove Cardigan is lighweight, however, they sent me one in black so I will be wearing it ALL winter long! Seriously - you will have to force me out of this cardigan. It too is very (I will upload photos of me in both as soon as I can but I wanted to get this post and giveaway up asap) with fitted arms but loose around the edges and the ruffle to give it that extra special 'ooh cute!' look. It will look great with jeans and a t-shirt or with a work skirt, pants, and a blouse.

Did you see me on that box of Cheerios?

Yes, TwoferMom has made it to the Big Time folks.

My photo is on a special edition of Cheerios.

You can all say you knew me when.

Here is the box:

Bloggers in caring

Remember a while back when I wrote this post here about Shop Rite's program called Partners in Caring? From that post Shop Rite and General Mills donated 30 boxes of cereal to a food bank!

That campaign was called Bloggers in Caring and as a thank you, Shop Rite and General Mills included all of our photos on the back of a special box of Honey Nut Cheerios.

Here's my fabulous photo:

Bloggers in caring

OK, it's really part of a mosaic of all of our photos but still, it makes me feel special and so happy to have helped Shop Rite raise awareness and help donate 3,000 boxes of cereal!

Bloggers in caring

I also received a lovely thank you package that included a Shop Rite reusable shopping bag, some yummy treats, and a $20 gift card. The treats are long gone, but I've decided to continue the caring part and let one of my readers win the shopping bag and $20 gift card! Visit my reviews/giveaways page to enter.

And pick up a box of Honey Nut Cheerios with the "Blogging Against Hunger" on the front the next time you are in Shop Rite so we can have breakfast together :).


Disclosure: I received the Shop Rite gift card, shopping bag, and other treats at no cost and as a thank you for participating in the Bloggers in Caring program. All opinions are my own and this post was not reviewed or approved prior to posting. It was my own decidsion to pass along the gift card and shopping bag to one of my readers in a giveaway.


Cross Post & Giveaway - Where I go for last minute baby gifts

This is a cross-post and giveaway from over at my Twofer Thumbs Up blog but I wanted to highlight it here because it's for my friend and neighbor.
Everyone say Hi to my neighbor Sharina. (((waving)))
Sharina has got a sewing machine and isn’t
afraid to use it.
Sharina, owner of, i
s where I turn for last-minute baby gifts. And because I’m a last-minute kind of gal, I’m at Sharina’s house...a lot. has all kids of great things for mom, baby, and little kids including bibs, blankets, clothing, stroller tags, even hair bows!

The matching bibs and burp clothes have been a huge hit with my friends.

These little dresses are so cute!

You can even get matching dresses for your big and little girl!

This Snacker Packer is ingenious.

Tuck a small bowl inside for easy snacking without all the mess. Little hands can reach in and you can tie it up easily. A clip keeps the snacks from flying off the stroller and onto the floor. The bag is reusable, better for the environment than plastic baggies, and washable!

Do you need last minute gifts? The good news is that you don’t have to drive to Sharina's house to shop. You can shop online at .
