freshly picked giveaway!

I rarely EVER do giveaways anymore, but I couldn't pass up this opportunity to do a review & giveaway for one of my favorite companies.  

Freshly Picked was started by a fellow mom, Susan Peterson, who was frustrated finding baby shoes that would stay on her baby's feet.  She decided to be proactive about this and make some herself!  To earn money to pay for the leather to make the shoes, she spent one summer busting glass and screws out of old windows from her brother's window installation company selling the aluminum for recycling.  Such amazing work ethic!  All of her hard work has definitely paid off.  A few weeks ago, Freshly Picked was featured on the ABC show, Shark Tank, and she got a great deal with one of the sharks - Damon!  (Damon is the guy that started the Fubu brand).  

Our experience with their moccasins has been incredible.  First off - the packaging is adorable.  When I opened our package, Aubrey thought she was getting a gift!  So modern & cute. She uses the little bag to put some toys in. :) Right away you can really see the quality in these beautiful shoes.  I put them on the girls right away, and was so happy to see how easy they were to slip on their little feet!  When we are leaving the house, the last thing I need to deal with as a busy mama of two is struggling to get shoes on feet, so I LOVE how effortlessly they slip on.  Although they slip on easily, they do NOT slip off their feet easily.  They have an elastic band that goes around the ankle so I didn't have to worry about having keep putting on fallen off shoes!  

Now I'm going to keep it real for a minute.   Not only are these moccasins fabulous quality & have such ease of use - they are DANG cute.  I don't think we have gone anywhere where the girls haven't gotten a compliment on them.  We have the "gold" & "frosted rose" colors, and they are stunning! It's been rainy here in California lately (yayy!) but we had a sunny day yesterday so I was able to take some pictures of the girls in their cute moccasins while on our walk.  They LOVE them just as much as I do!

Freshly Picked is generous enough to give away one pair of their adorable moccasins!  They have tons of sizes and colors - you will LOVE them!  Enter here!  (All you have to do is enter your email, and you can enter once a day for the next week!)
