Isn’t it ridiculously ADORABLE? Gabbi recently received this little beauty {Venus Rosette Bikini} from Limeapple Apparel {I know how cute is that name!} Let me tell you a bit about the company …

I absolutely adore this from their website:

We believe…
– in little girls being little girls for as long as possible
– in afternoons spent jumping, running, playing and laughing
– in not sacrificing comfort for style
– in boundless imagination, limitless potential and endless curiosity
– in healthy girls being happy girls
– in confidence as fuel
– in being strong in mind, body and spirit
– in girls’ natural ability to lead, nurture and achieve
– in happiness being contagious

 

I think it goes without saying that this a great company! LA5 copy
This is hands down the best quality swimsuit we have ever had for Gabbi! When it arrived little miss and I opened it together and she gasped and said “oh mommy it is gorgeous” (she loves using the word gorgeous..it’s too cute) I agreed it is absolutely darling but mommy was more impressed by the quality of this bathing suit! It feels expensive…like REALLY expensive…you know what I mean…there is just something about it that screams high-end!

The fit is impeccable! It fits as if it was custom-made for her!
As always when ordering online be sure to reference the size chart! Gabbi will be 8 at the end of summer and this bathing suit is a size 5 (Gabbi is barely 40 lbs after she’s eaten)
LA1The bikini stays in place even when wet! That is one issue we’ve had in the past with Gabbi’s swimwear, it may fit great dry but after a swim is a different story. Not so with this cutie!
We recently took this bathing suit on vacation and let me tell you it was adored by all who saw it! Everyone LOVED!
The Limeapple Venus Rosette Bikini is perfect for hotel stays because it drys very fast. While on vaca Gabbi and her brother spent a lot of time in the pool and in the evening they all hung their swim wear in the shower Gabbi’s was the only suit that was dried by morning!

A few great things about this swimsuit other than the fact it is ADORABLE!
  • Fully adjustable tie straps
  • Full bottom coverage
  • High quality appliqués that stay fluffy even after it’s been wet
  • Dries fast (perfect for vacations and hotel stays)

Check out all the great stuff that Limeapple offers!

Gabbi would love a Bubble Hoodie, The Delia Dress, & The Arvia Printed Swimsuit

What would you love to get from Limeapple? We’d love to hear!

I want to extend a HUGE Thank You to Limeapple for sending Gabbi this adorable swimsuit!

*Although Limeapple did send me this Swimsuit to feature I was not compensated for this post or require to give a positive review.  All thoughts + opinions are 100% my own.

Flip Flop Leos GIVEAWAY!!

IMG_0632

I’ve done it again! I’ve partnered with Debbie over at Flip Flop Leos for another leotard giveaway!!

A few months ago we discovered Flip Flop Leos and absolutely fell in love…it was truly love at first sight (and feel). Debbie has been making leotards for 30 years (for her daughter throughout her gymnastics career) so she absolutely knows what she is doing!

IMG_0533We love Debbie’s pattern for these leotards! It’s like the were created just for Gabbi (they fit exactly like her custom leotard from another brand!) Gabbi is long and narrow so finding the perfect leotard fit was quite the journey. In most brands if it fits in the torso the it is really baggy in the body (I’m talking REALLY baggy) then contrast that to if it fits her body nice and sleek (you know that look every gymnast wants) then it is WAY too tight in the torso resulting in serious shoulder and thigh pressure marks and a lot of painful tears. IMG_0569

Honestly friends that all changed with our first leo from Flip Flop Leos! We knew we had found Gabbi’s perfect brand! We love the sleek cut, the wider crotch and the lower cut hip prevents any embarrassing panty moments {Gabbi hates when her undies show}
IMG_0584
You might be asking your self ‘are Flip Flop Leos are only for long and lean?’ NO WAY! Flip Flop Leos have a ton of stretch so they will fit any body shape!

Remember to always know your gymnasts torso measurement for the best fit. {Gabbi will be 8 at the end summer and wears a Flip Flop Leo size 6 with growing room.} Check out Debbie’s video on YouTube are getting the right fit!
