Earth Mama, Angel Baby Giveaway Part 2

The second part of my EMAB giveaway is for mamas who have experienced the worst possible kind of loss there is:

The loss of a baby.

I am not reviewing any of the products contained in what I am giving away, but the thing that I’m reviewing is relevant to a woman’s needs after the loss of a little one. EMAB sent me one more products to review.

The Healing Hearts Hot Pack

Healing Hearts Hot Pack

From the Website:
“Filled with calming lavender blossoms and rice, the
Healing Heart Hot Pack eases cramping and is a comfort to hold close.”

I would have appreciated this when I had my miscarriage. It’s very soft, and it’s a sweet little hot pack.. Nothing can take away the emotional pain of losing a baby, but during my miscarriage I had some pretty bad cramps and this would have helped ease the physical a little bit. As it is now, I use it during my period. I really like snuggling up with it, and a cup of tea and it really does ease the pain of cramps quite a bit.

When I spoke to Julie with Earth Mama, Angel Baby we agreed that two giveaways were a good idea; one to celebrate my sweet daughter Nellie, and one to remember the baby we lost, and to reach out to others who may have felt, or are feeling, the same pain that I did.

Now, I know that you can’t plan for needing a kit like this.. And I honestly wish that no one DID need a kit like this. Julie suggested giving away the Healing Hearts Comfort Kit, which I thought was a great idea.

From the Website:

“The Healing Hearts Comfort Kit is a caring bereavement or baby loss gift for a grieving mother. Filled with natural herbal products to soothe an aching body and an aching heart. Harmony Tea is a mineral rich, balancing, cramp-easing blend of USDA Certified 100% Organic & Certified Kosher herbs. Seeds of Hope are easily sown, organic herbal calendula seeds to nurture hope and caring.

The Light of My Heart Candle is a clean burning soy votive aromatherapy candle, enhanced with a special blend of comforting pure essential oils. Healing Heart Mist blends pure essential oils traditionally used to ease sadness and soothe spirits.”

The Healing Heart Comfort Kit includes:

  • Harmony Tea
  • Seeds Of Hope
  • Light Of My Heart Candle
  • Healing Heart Mist

I didn’t review any of the items in the kit, but I can honestly say I would have been touched to my core if someone had gotten this for me while I was recovering from our loss. The gesture alone would have been enough, but the thoughtful gifts inside the kit would have been so welcomed.

Part of me hopes that I don’t get many entries to this giveaway, because dealing with the loss of a baby is such a terrible thing to have to endure.

I’m taking the tone of this giveaway way down, obviously. I’m going to make entries very easy; very simple. Here is how you can win the kit:

  • Tell me the story of your angel baby. I don’t need any gory details; I just want to know any special memory you may have about your sweet baby. I understand that it’s a very personal and sad thing to go through so if that’s too difficult on you emotionally, so if you’d like to win the kit but don’t want to talk about your loss just now, simply tweet about the giveaway – including the URL of the giveaway and my name (@karmapearl) and post the link to your Tweet.
  • If this kit is for a friend and not for you personally, tell me as much of their story as you know. Again, if you’d rather not post about them just Tweet about the giveaway and then post the link here.

I will close the giveaway on Monday, May 31st.

Monday Melodies – Guilty Pleasures

I consider myself to have pretty good taste in music… Doesn’t everyone? Most of the bands I like are universally accepted as “good”. You may not like all of them, but many of them you can’t argue with the fact that they make good music, even if it’s not your cup of tea.

Well, I’m going to share a few songs that I’m a little ashamed to admit that I like. Guilty pleasure songs of mine, if you will. I’m not ashamed of ALL of them, but some of them.. Well.

I’ll just let you see for yourself.

All the Right Moves, OneRepublic
I jam the hell OUT to this song when it comes on it the car. I can NOT explain why I love this song so effing much but I will BLAST this song when it comes on.

Alejandro, LadyGaga
I love me some Lady GaGa. I actually think that she is CRAZY talented, and this is another one that I blast in the car.

Bed Rock, Young Money
Okay, I’m a little ashamed to admit that I like this song. Because.. Come on. It’s ridiculous. But I blast the hell out of this one in the car. I don’t know what it is!!!! I love this song.

I think this last one is my ultimate shame.

*hangs head*


So what about you? What are your guilty pleasure songs?

Earth Mama, Angel Baby Giveaway Part 1 WINNER!

Thanks to everyone who participated in the giveaway. The winner of the “A Little Something for Baby” is….

Now, since I installed Disqus I have no way of numbering my comments, so I had to enter everyone’s entries onto a spreadsheet. I started from the BOTTOM comments (because those were the ones entered FIRST) and worked my way up.

I’m not real happy about doing it that way but I can’t think of any other method. If ya’ll have some suggestions, please holler at me!

Thanks to all who played. I’ll have another one up tomorrow.
