Prudent Advice Gift Bag Giveaway!

I had so much fun last Friday at the Prudent Advice Book Launch Party here in LA hosted by The Little Seed (maybe you know their awesome line of baby items now available at Target). I was lucky to meet some awesome Prudent Mamas, including Bethany who came in a shirt she made from a Fat Quarter she won here, check it out!

Soooo….I snagged a few gift bags for you guys, they’re pretty great! In honor of the launch of Prudent Advice I thought I’d host a little giveaway and send off five bags, one to each of five lucky ladies who couldn’t be here for the event. Inside you’ll find all these fab treats from the party sponsors:

A full size Smashbox Lip Gloss…

A Kimmel Kids stencil set…

A Cooking With My Kid popcorn kit…

One of these snazzy Incase iPhone Cases

A discount on Kartell furniture…

And a full size California Baby Spritzer (umm, i love this and spray it on myself all the time)…

Isn’t it great when your sponsors are things you love anyway?? We are giving away 5 of these treats! So leave a comment on this post telling us your most prudent advice anytime between now and Tuesday October 26th. Come back every day for a new entry.  Tweet, Stumble, and/or share the giveaway on facebook by clicking “like” below and leave us another comment each time letting us know for an additional entry. We will select five winners at random and send them a gift bag (we can only ship to US addresses). Can’t wait to hear what you have to say.

And if you want to order a copy of the book, I’d be so honored: Prudent Advice.  XOXO

If you can't sleep, get up and tackle tomorrow's to-do list!

I love this package and I LUST over the blue perforated Iphone cover. Come to mama!

My first child is due in December. (Just around the river bend. Eeek! So excited.)

My advice for the little bub will be to use his imagination. And if he gets flack from others for doing so, I'll just tell him to imagine they are silly dancing hippos.

My mom always told me "Never give a dog a bone to carry" meaning to protect your important business from becoming the subject of other's gossip.


No matter how old you are ~ celebrate your birthday like it is the most important day of the year! (You deserve it!)
My birthday happens to be Oct. 26. I'm just sayin'!


This is probably one of the best give aways EVER! My mom always told me " There is no time like the present!" as I was always looking forward to the future and daydreaming and wishing instead of living in the now.


My advice? Believe in yourself. My favorite quote, one that I have up on our fridge so that my daughter can see it daily, is "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."


Treat others as you would want to be treated. I keep telling my 2 year old that….. Congratulations on the book!

The Russ Family

You're making memories every day, make them good ones. Said wisely by my grandmother.

Wall Family

Just Try It. I swear it works for so many things! I always say to just try it, if you don't like it fine, but at least you gave it a chance.


Super cute bags!! I'm not usually one to give advice, but when I had my daughter my Grandmother said, "cherish the little things, they're what you'll miss the most." And boy was she right, I'll forever miss my two year old's lisp.

Rainy Dae

If you want something, go get it! I spent far too many years waiting for opportunities to fall into my lap and then I finally figured out that life is what you make it.


Let it go… There are so many things in your life you have to let go of when you have kids! Your clean house, clean clothes, most of your expectations what it would be like to be a parent, (it is sooo much better than you thought it would be), your germophobia, your sleep etc. etc. Only make a big deal about the important things in life, like baby smiles, beautiful words, yummy foods, kindness. The things that matter.

The Morrill Mama

I'm going to have to go with what Sofia said….Let It Go!!!!!! I've been carrying a grudge for the past three days and it's already making me physically sick πŸ™ And it doesn't even matter now.


Two more to add from me:
1. Education is key – no one can take knowledge.
2. If you work hard, you can make your life better.

Seaweed and Raine

Some advice a friend told me when I was about to become a parent (But I think it works pretty much for everything in general)…
Listen to the advice of others – then choose whichever works best for you. (You may need to use trial and error till you find it!).
