Lotus Bumz #Review & #Giveaway (OVER)

11 April 2012

Thanks to A Little Crunchy for this wonderful review!

These diapers are simply beautiful!

The PUL is quality and did not leak on us.

Soft Fleece Inner Lining

Squishy 3 layer Microfiber Insert

These are one size pocket diapers fitting Small to Large!

Beautiful diaper above is Periwinkle Twinkle 2.0!

This cloth diaper is easy to use, you stuff the insert into it and then put it on baby using the snaps that fit best. For my 2 year old the top buttons worked well with lots of room on the wings for growth. As it as has side snaps added it does not droop like some other diapers. I fully expect this diaper to last till potty learning and beyond for another baby! (No we are not planning one! Our nest is full!)

One off the things I love about this diaper is that it is not overly thick and cumbersome. Our little darling silly girl was on her toes in seconds and off to play. I caught up with here on a chair trying to get me to play a game with her!

This diaper did not slow her down one little bit!

And it was fast to put on!

One of the benefits of pocket diapers are that they dry in less time and you can add another insert for night time if you needed to, though we didn't. Another thing that I find a bonus is that the inside of the PUL cover is smooth and so stuffing it is easy unlike some other pocket diapers that are sticky and make it hard to get the insert in and smooth.

One of the first things that stuck out to me about this brand of pocket cloth diapers is the number of pattern and color choices! Here are a few I especially love.

My Chaotic Ramblings

Mom Me Time Sponsor Spotlight: Streekers

I love to dye my hair, the only problem is; I really want to use in your face colors and can't see myself living with a bright pink or purple head of hair for 3 months.  So I normally end up buying that spray hair color and it leaves my hair feeling stiff and then ends up flaking off after an hour or so.

One day while browsing the internet I happened to stumble upon a photo of a girl with just streaks of color in her hair, after clicking on the photo I was taken to Streekers website and I knew I had to have them!! As a woman with naturally dark hair ( I'm talking almost black) I normally dye my hair a purplish red ( Chocolate Cherry anyone??). So I was worried that I wouldn't be able to use the Streekers in my dark hair( we all know EVERYTHING shows up on the ones blessed with light colored hair).

The amazing company rep heard my dilemma and sent me a variety of colors to try, while advising me that the pink and red may not show up as bright. When they arrived, I was expecting just three different options, but I was overly joyed to see that she had sent me 6 of the 8 colors available!

The girls and I headed straight to the mirror to test them out! Harm and Sassy wouldn't let me get pictures of the colors in their hair, but where Sassy has a lighter brown hair all the colors show up bright and vibrant. Harm has my darker hair, so the blue, green and ultra violet are the ones that show up best on her. So it was time to try them in my dyed hair, I used each color on a different section on my hair and while the blue, green and ultra violet showed up best; you could also see the purple, pink and red.

The applying of the color is super simple, Sassy has started doing her own hair every morning before school. A tip when applying the color: do it sparingly! If you add too much color to one strand it will cause your hair to be stiff and the color will rub off. The color lasts throughout the day, Sassy wears a streak or two to school everyday and it is still there and as vibrant as it was when she put it in, and you can brush your hair without worrying about the color fading.. I love how easy it is to apply and when it is time to wash out, all the color comes out super easy, it is like rinsing your hair after dyeing. Just get in the shower, run the water through your hair until the water runs clear and then shampoo as normal.

I know you are probably wondering :What are Streekers? 
Streekers is true temporary hair color with a difference: not a mascara, not a crayon, not a paint. It’s instant, liquid, and brushable. Colors are vibrant on blondes or blonde streaks and show as subtle highlights on darker hair.

Streekers can be purchased online at the site for $11.95 with shipping of $3.95. The little bottles last a long time if you are only doing two or three streaks at a time. Sassy has been using the pink with two streaks everyday for the last 30 days and we haven't even used half of the bottle yet.
