Congrats to Melissa from Sadieville, KY for winning the Wee Alphas print from Wee Society in my recent giveaway! Thanks to everyone who entered.
Right now, there's still time to enter the Back to School giveaway I have going on with TheFind where you can win a $50 Visa or Am Ex gift card that can be used anywhere! Deadline for entries is Wednesday, September 4th.
Back to School for us is only a couple days away. I just remembered had to get Chloe a backpack for Kindergarten. Doing a quick search on TheFind's new iPad app took mere seconds and gave me tons of results and store/price options for the Skip Hop Zoo style backpack I wanted. (I ended up choosing the ladybug. Cute, no?)
TheFind has a powerful shopping search that helps you look through every store and every product to quickly find you the best prices for back to school. Shopping with TheFind app is so much easier than comparison shopping from your computer. No more multiple browser windows or tabs open! I also love that you can fire up the app and literally start shopping. Just sign in with your Facebook login (or guest if you so choose) and you are pretty much ready to go with your shopping search!
To celebrate Back to School, TheFind and Coquette Maman have a fantastic giveaway for you! Shopping is hard and even if your little one has already started school, there's always something you need to buy – shoes (ah, their growing feet!), clothes or lunchtime goods. Here's your chance to win a $50 gift card for your online Back to School shopping! (Gift card will be a Visa or Am Ex card you can use anywhere.)
Simply leave a comment to this post to enter. You must enter your email address in the email field. (Your address will not be viewable when published.) By adding your email address you will be subscribed to TheFind's shopping newsletter and from time to time receive emails on what's new TheFind. The contest will culminate in a grand prize drawing for a $100 gift card, to be chosen at random from all of the entries from participating bloggers. Deadline for entries is Wednesday, September 4th at 5pm PST. The grand prize winner of $100 will be chosen on Wednesday, September 11th and will be announced on September 12th.
I am super excited to partner up with my friends at Wee Society to present to you this fun Back to School giveaway. Win this unframed 18" X 24" Wee Alphas alphabet print (retail value $40) featuring letters hidden in their quirky characters such as Alexander the Angelfish, Biki the Buffalo and more. Your print comes stamped with a shiny metallic gold foil Wee Society seal. It's a great way to brighten up your kid's room!

BubbleBum is the first ever inflatable booster seat that's the perfect portable companion for carpools, sleepovers, rental cars, and travel. BubbleBum is for children ages 4-11 who weigh between 40-100 pounds. It should only be used with a 3 point car seat belt (shoulder + lap belt) when used in a vehicle. It meets all U.S. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards too. For all the times I have had a rental car while my car was in the shop, I only wished I had this to make the quick pick up from school so much easier.
BubbleBum is really easy to use. When deflated the booster is so compact and fits nicely in it's little bag. To inflate, you twist the valve open and blow until it inflates. I tried it myself and it doesn't take much effort to get it nice and full. It also comes with a seatbelt positioning clip so it sits comfortably on your child's shoulder. A huge plus is that this fits perfectly in my tote bag!
I already know this will be great for when we go to the movies and Chloe needs an extra little boost in her chair in the theater. And I am excited that we can easily bring this on our next vacation or when we have a quick car ride with a friend.
BubbleBum is now available in Target stores in the Bay Area and across the U.S. To find the Target near you that sells BubbleBum, check out the store locator.

I plan on giving lots of books as gifts this holiday season and a lot of them are for the little kids I know. Every child loves to hear a fun story and a for a kid, nothing makes a story cooler than having them be a part of it!
Chronicle Books has just launched My Chronicle Books, a place for personalized books, gifts, and more. I just gave my daughter the Princess Chloe book today for her birthday and she wanted to hear the story again and again. She loved seeing her name and photo within the book, as well as the name of her favorite pony "Sparkle" which I added in. I also bought Speedster Mathieu for her classmate's birthday a few weeks ago and he loved that both his brother Alex and Chloe were other racers in the book.
The process is super easy. Just fill in the various form fields the child's name, birth date, and anything else that's asked for. Then instantly, you'll be able to preview the whole story with all the information page by page before you buy the book. Watch the video above to find out how easy it is to create a special book!
You can also personalize placemats, growth charts, wall art, lunch boxes and more. It's the perfect gift for the holidays and birthdays.
There's a Friends & Family Holiday Sale going on now! Get 35% off + free shipping. Use the discount code: FRIENDS at My Chronicle Books.
One lucky Coquette Maman reader will be able to win a personalized Speedster or Princess book. To enter, just leave a comment to this post. It's easy! You must be a resident of the U.S. or Canada. The giveaway ends on Friday, November 30, 2012 at 5pm PST.

Ivy and Bean need some money. Ten dollars, to be exact. Never mind what for. Okay, it’s for low-fat Belldeloon cheese in a special just-for you serving size. Don’t ask why. How are Ivy and Bean going to make ten dollars? Hey, maybe they should write a newspaper about Pancake Court and sell it! Great idea! And easy, too. All they have to do is snoop around the neighborhood. Wow...It’s very interesting what they can find out. It’s even more interesting when the neighbors read about it in the newspaper.
