Fall colors, foods, and GIVEAWAY

Orange is an important color in our lives. I have always enjoyed its brightness and vibrance. It makes me think happy thoughts. But it was not until I started to attend college that it really took on a personal meaning. I studied Psychology. In Portugal, at least, orange is the color of psychology majors. It became my color too. I met my husband, also a psychology major, in college. For our wedding, we had an orange/white/silver color scheme, of course. So far, orange was part of my major milestones: college and marriage. But when I found out I was pregnant with my first child and she was due in October, it gain an even bigger significance. I was having a little Fall pumpkin! Now, orange is a simple reminder of all the things I love the most! It makes me smile every time I look at it. So, now that you know all about my orange craze, it’s easy to understand why I picked the color orange for my first Re-Play starter set! They have so many amazing colors, but this one, was mine!

Benefits of Skin-to-Skin and NüRoo Pocket Giveaway

  Kangaroo Care Awareness Day is on May 15th and I am celebrating this day by spreading information on the importance of skin-to-skin contact with my friends over at NüRoo. Kangaroo care is the act of placing a newborn in direct skin-to-skin contact with the parent. This technique was initially developed and is most commonly known to be used in the NICU with premature babies. The skin-to-skin contact helps regulate the infants temperature and is a great technique for babies that were born prematurely. However, more and more it is used with both premature and full term babies and the benefits go way beyond regulation of body temperature. I interviewed the brand manager for NüRoo, Rachel Samuelian, who told me all about their innovative product – the NüRoo Pocket – designed to promote easy skin-to-skin contact and also shared information on the benefits of kangaroo care. And today, I am not only sharing this valuable information with you, but we will also be giving away one NüRoo Pocket to a lucky reader. Furthermore, NüRoo will be extending a special offer to The Loving Nest readers by giving you a 20% discount on any product from now until May 31st with the code LOVENEST.    1.
