I am so excited to be teaming up with my most favorite coffee brand in the world again, Lavazza! If you haven't heard about this Italian-born company, you need to hurry up and have a sip of their creamy, black, goodness, and get in the know. Because their coffee is delish.

I've blogged many times about Lavazza. And you can always read my thoughts on them herehere, and here (I shared a few yummy recipes on those posts, as well). So, I won't beat a dead horse and continue to tell you why you should try Lavazza.

Anyhoo, the real point of today's Lavazza post is that I'm giving you guys a chance to win a Keurig K-Cup K10 Mini coffee maker AND every flavor of Lavazza's brand new specialty drip coffee blends in Keurig K-Cup packs! Now you can have Lavazza coffee in seconds. That's what I'm talking about.

Guys. It's about to get real. AGAIN. I'm totally preggs.

And that is why I've been MIA from the blog. I'm two months pregnant! And boy has it been rough. I've had morning sickness all bleeping day and night. I didn't even think that mess was real. But apparently it is. REAL LIFE. I mean, I had it made when I was pregnant with Adrienne. I wasn't even sick once, well, except when I ate too many hot dogs on July 4th while I was pregs, but I don't count that. Because hot dogs.

Anyhoosers, I'm also SOOOO not ready to be pricked, stuck, groped, lubed, and made to pee in a cup all the live long day. Ugh. The doctor visits. Can we not even? Let's just speed up the next seven months. Okay, thanks.

Emma Kisstina

Back when I first started my blog, I would do a monthly post where I shared what was in my bag. I pretty much haven't posted one of those in a super long while. hashtagslacker. So, when Emma Kisstina contacted me asking if I would share what was in my bag with her so that she could turn it into art, I jumped at the opportunity. 

Emma Kisstina is a talented artist who creates amazing prints featuring timeless brands and items. I've been seriously lusting over her prints for a long time. They exude femininity and class. And I'm so totally honored she did this one for me

I basically sent her a photo of my beloved Louis Vuitton Speedy along with it's contents. I even found a My Little Pony in my purse along with a ton of receipts and loose change. I decided to include the pony, because MY LITTLE PONIES, and exclude the junk. 

And then she turned it into this:


I'm in love with this print. It's a keepsake that will always remind me of motherhood.

Be sure to also check out Emma Kisstina on FacebookTwitter, Instagram, and Pinterest for even more eye candy!

Schoola and KIPP Academy #Clothes4Schools

I'm a big thrifter. I go to Good Greatwill on the reg. I also love a good antique shop. And if I could wake up early enough for yard sales, I'd hit those up, too. I become a total mouth breather when I'm in the thrifting zone, and I always find awesome treasures at amazing prices.

When it comes to Adrienne's clothes, I hate spending a fortune on an outfit that she'll only fit into a few months. And that's the time frame, because my kiddo is growing. ::bittersweet face:: A lot of Adrienne's clothes are bought second hand. I can get adorable things that are gently used for next to nothing. #heyoh.

With that said, Schoola, an online resale children's store with amazing prices, is a great place to shop. You can find fantastic name brand clothing for the kids at a totally second hand price. Plus, you can shop while never leaving your house. Win slash win slash winning all around.

Another amazing thing about Schoola is they will also take your child's used clothes! All you have to do is simply request a Schoola Bag and it will be sent to your house. Fill the bag with outgrown clothes and pop it into the mail. Schoola even pays for shipping! 40% of the proceeds from the sale of your donated items will be given to a school of YOUR choice.

Plus, for every transaction that is tracked or for every person who requests a Schoola donation bag via my unique referral code, Schoola will donate $1 to KIPP Academy. KIPP Academy is a small school located in the Bronx. This school works extremely hard to help needy children. 95% of the student body qualifies for free or reduced-cost lunches. And more than 1 in 7 children there receives special education services. In the midst of all the hardships these children endure, music touches and engages them. They even have a slogan on their music room door- "All of us will learn music."

Also, when you donate clothes and fill out your school information, $2 of every $5 made will go back to your child's school! That's what we call a win slash win for everyone!

So, get out there and help the world by shopping second hand. And help schools in need by shopping with Schoola.

This post is brought to you by Schoola, the best place to buy discounted kids clothes all while give back to schools in need.
