Giveaway Goodies: Milk Nursingwear Giveaway

* Giveaway is now CLOSED. Thank you all for your participation!

Milk is a one-stop-online shop that offers chic, stylish, and most of all, comfortable nursing wear for both moms-to be as well as nursing moms! Milk is the brainchild of Elisa Minsk Hartstein, a mom four times over who wanted to share her years of knowledge and produce nursing wear moms won't shy away from wearing.

Keyhole top
 One of their most popular products is their nursing tops. The one above caught my attention! This keyhole top reminds me of a dress I saw Christina Hendrick's character Joan wearing in Season 1 of Mad Men. That makes this top a fashion statement, on top of being a comfy choice for nursing moms. The hidden opening makes it so easy for moms to nurse without hassle. 

Bamboo white belly band
 They even have an eco-friendly range aptly named ecoMilk incorporating the softest organic cottons or bamboo fibers making products naturally breathable, anti-bacterial, and biodegradable. 

Maya Wrap

Milk even has something for gift showers such as their cute slings, onesies, and baby bibs! Milk also sells nursing bras, dresses, and really cute sleepwear. You're spoilt for choice with Milk! Best of all, some of their great products are on SALE right now for less than $40!

The thing I love about Milk is their commitment to quality products. Milk also ships worldwide so everyone can have some Milk! I also love their milk $ rewards which can be redeemed for dollars-off purchases. So the more you purchase the more credits you have.

Milk is sold in stores anywhere from Australia all the way to the Bahamas. For more locations, check out their Store Locator.Or, better still, just shop shop at their online store and earn your milk $ rewards from the comfort of your own home.

Random Thoughts: September RAK Wrap Up & October RAK Sign Up

For September I decided to send 2 lovely people a book each. I chose them as September was their birthday month so I thought that would make it extra special.

Books sent:

to April Hamrick from America! She sent me a RAK in July! 

to Nikki @ Sapphired Dragon from Australia!
 I didn't receive anything in September also but *fingers crossed* I will soon!

 As for the October Sign-Up, RAK is held every month and hosted by the gals at Book Soulmates and see below if you want to participate this month!

Please read carefully & follow all the rules!

  • Please sign-up each month that you can participate (and by participate, we mean give as well as receive).
  • Show off your participation by grabbing the RAK button (code is in the sidebar).
  • Create a wish list (on Amazon, Goodreads, or your blog etc) and post it in the Google Doc located in each R.A.K post for the month.
  • If you choose to do a R.A.K for someone, check out their wish list and contact that blogger directly for their information.
  • Once you receive a RAK, send an email to [rakbybooksoulmates @ gmail . com] so that they can update the Google Doc. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU SEND EMAILS TO THIS ADDRESS!
  • E-book participation is limited to files being gifted directly to a person from the e-book store. Amazon's Kindle Store is set up to allow this, as well as the Kobo store and we believe Barnes & Noble as well.
  • At the end of the month, SHOW US YOUR R.A.K by making a "RAK Wrap-Up" post. This post should include who you SENT gifts to as well who you RECEIVED gifts from :)

OPEN TO EVERYONE including all our International brethren!
