Having Kids and Gaining Poise Moments!

“This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Poise, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #poiseatkroger”

I’ll be honest, I thought bladder leakage after child birth was just from that, child birth! I had a c-section and can tell you it’s not! Just carrying a child and you can experience bladder leakage! So, today we are going to talk about bladder leakage protection.

During and after having my precious daughter I began to notice every sneeze, cough, even a giggle would cause bladder leakage! It’s hard to feel confident and at ease when you are out with your friends or family knowing an embarrassing accident could happen at any moment. I was never comfortable going out and certainly shied away from having too much fun! You know what happens when you have too much fun, you laugh, sometimes so hard you cry and next thing you know all the fun is gone and here comes the embarrassment of having had an accident!

Going out with my family, my loved ones should never be a scary or apprehensive moment!

So, we either continue being worried and reclusive shying away from going out, or we seize our “Poise Moment!”

That is JUST what I’ve done! I’ve gained my confidence back by seizing my “POISE MOMENT”! I am much more confident and quick to say YES to going out!


My daughter asked me if we could go walk the mall and this was her response to my saying “YES”!

Currently I am 4 months pregnant and the bladder leakage issues have become a lot worse! Plus, I have a cold and with every cough and every sneeze…..mamma’s out there, you know what that means! And seriously, is that the cutest baby bump!? I have definitely popped!!

I went shopping at Kroger and found the Poise Thin Shaped Pads and I have been using them for a few days now and they are absolutely a lifesaver! I can go out, hang out, have fun and enjoy life again without worrying about an accident!  A mommy-friend just confided in my a few days ago that she usually packs several pants and underwear when leaving the house only to end up with a jacket tied around her waist to hide the accident!

Mommy’s, I know you know that pain! I sure do. What’s great is having the confidence to go out without extra clothes knowing Poise has my back. No more embarrassing accidents!

Adorable Reversible Holiday Vest using Duck Brand® Tape

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Duck Brand provided by ShurTech Brands, LLC for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I am SO HAPPY with how adorable this vest came out! This was my sister Nori's idea and I'm so glad I used her idea. 

Isn't it adorable!!?!! Alice loves it, too. 

Let me show you how I made it. It was surprisingly easy to make. 

First, I grabbed a shirt of Alice's and used it to trace the pattern on to a large sheet of paper. I omitted the sleeves for the vest. I traced two patterns one for the front and one for the back.

Then, I VERY CAREFULLY (this would be the trickiest part of the project) and SLOWLY cut strips of the printed Duck Brand® Tape and placed them vertically over the traced pattern on the paper. The first strip I flipped the top and bottom edges over and adhered it to the paper. Then I continued to cut strips long enough to lay over the patter and carefully layered them over the strip before. I only layered them over each other by a 1/4 of an inch. I did this until I covered the whole traced pattern. Then I repeated this process with another pattern of the Duck Brand® Tape, except this time I put sticky side to sticky side and placed the strips horizontally. 

I did this for both traced patterns. Once both sides of the Duck Tape fabric is made I used the traced pattern I thought was closest to the correct size and cut it out. Then I used that cut out as a stencil to cut out the other half of the vest pattern. 

I then placed the cut out paper pattern over the Duck Tape fabric and cut it to form each piece of the pattern. 

Then I placed the two pieces together and used a hole punch to punch holes in to the sides and tops where the shoulders would be.  I used white yarn and tied both sides together. After the pieces were together I then cut the front piece straight down the center and cut out a v neckline at the top. 

SO EASY!! Honestly, it is!

Now, because we used two different patters, your new holiday vest is reversible!!! Which you know anything that has two looks in one is just too cool!!

We have the Duck Brand® Tape Seasonal Sweets side of the vest!

Then you just flip the vest inside out and TADA!!! You have the super adorable Duck Brand® Tape Penguin side!!

SO ADORABLE!!! I can't wait to make more!!

Besides the super cute penguin pattern and the pretty seasonal sweets pattern, Duck Brand® holiday prints also come in Snowman, Holiday Bows and many seasonal colors. 

What creative, fun projects have you made or would like to make using the wonderful holiday patterns from Duck Brand®?
