Rad Swim (Giveaway)

SUCH A FUN GIVEAWAY for you guys today!! I have teamed up with Rad Swim, an awesome swimwear company owned by a genius and wildly successful mama and business owner. You can read more about her and the company here. And a huge thank you to my bestie of 20+ years for using her skills to capture the fun we had in photos! She followed me & my busy girls around all morning and captured my vision for this shoot so well! 

Let's just talk about my girls swimsuits for a second-I mean really? And if you weren't already blown away by the cuteness of the Little Kylee, look here to find the matching (yes matching) Kylee for adults. Can't even take it.

These suits are even more adorable in person- seriously they are AMAZING. I constantly have trouble finding suits that fit me right and are flattering as I have a long torso, short legs, and lets face it- a few extra things that are less than desirable since becoming a mom ;) When I got the Nicole Suit the mail I ripped it open and tried it on the second I got it and literally fell in love. The coverage is amazing, the front tassel detail gives uniqueness to a simple black one piece, and it's detachable halter strap makes it so versatile. It's pretty much the best little black dress of swimsuits!

There are a lot of things that I've always valued as important when raising kids, but one of the specific things that has been a goal of mine and my husband's is to raise them to be modest. I truly believe it's important that even at the young age of 3, my girls see the value of respecting their bodies and showing modesty especially when wearing bathing suits. One thing I absolutely LOVE about Rad Swim is that all of their suits are super modest, but they're all SO AMAZINGLY CUTE. I had the option of picking which suit I wanted to review for this blog post, and truly I agonized over which one to pick haha! This one and this one were both ones I was considering along with the Nicole (and all of the others pretty much;)

The way I see it, if I can go to a beach, splash pad, and playground with my toddlers and not have to tug or pull on it in any way, and still manage to look put together by the end, it passes ALL the tests.

I'm beyond thrilled to be teaming up with Michelle of Rad Swim to give away ONE of the killer Nicole suits today as well as one of my coral hair scarves and a set of beaded bracelets! Here's what you have to do:

1. Follow @radswim and @twosparrowsheadbands on instagram if you aren't already!
2. Tag a friend, tell them they need this suit/headband/bracelet combo!
3. Do a cartwheel/roundoff/handstand combo (extra credit, obviously).

That's it! Winner will be notified through instagram ONE WEEK from today.

Albion Fit (Giveaway)

I'm so excited to be collaborating with the amazing company Albion today to bring you an awesome giveaway for one of these Go Long Crew's! If you know me, you know that I like to be comfortable and have little/no time to get ready in the morning. Much less try to fit in a workout of any kind. My "workouts" usually involve pushing 60 lbs of toddler uphill or on the pretty waterfront path we live near while stopping every 5 seconds to look at a duck, a sailboat or because someone needs a snack. Every so often my girls will try to whip me into shape and say "mom! you're not running, go faster!" They really know how to motivate;)

I am absolutely in LOVE with Albion's Go Long Crew for the days where I need something easy to throw on while I'm running after my two little loves, and also in hopes that I'll be able to sneak in a quick workout. These tops are made from the softest and stretchiest fabric and are long enough so they're great for moving mama's like me who don't have time to keep tugging at my clothes.

Who doesn't love thumb holes too? I'm obsessed.

These crews come in Ballet Pink, Ivory, Heather Grey and Cool Mint (the one I'm wearing). They're the ideal shirts to throw on during the week to do errands, to go for a quick run after work, or to layer over your suit at the beach. So versatile.

I'm thrilled to be giving away one Go Long Crew to a lucky lady (color of your choice!) along with one of my Grey & Coral Two Toned Turbans!! Here's what you have to do:
1. Make sure you are following me & Albion Fit on Instagram:
2.Tag 2 friends on the instagram post that mentions this blog/giveaway.
That's it! The giveaway will run for ONE week and the winner will be contacted. 

Albion was kind enough to offer a discount code exclusive for my readers only! You can use code twosparrows15 for 15% off your purchase from their amazing site. (offer expires August 5th).
