Media Kit

Thank you for inquiring into Girly Girl Giveaways!


My mother always said two things about me:
1). I was born in the wrong era
2). I follow the beat of a different drummer

What can I say? I love taking the road less traveled.

I am not mainstream, I am my own stream. I am a poet, a songwriter, a worshiper, a mother, a wife, a baker, a jeweler. I have to try everything once. I am also a crunchy, attachment parent-type (breastfeeding, baby-wearing). My newest venture this year will be gardening!

In school I had to try everything. I wasn't satisfied sticking to one course. I wanted to take them all: journalism, baking, theatre, Art & Lit Magazine, Red Cross, culinary arts, preschool teaching. I will always be a student, forever learning and growing. But don't be fooled. I am not the type to try something, drop it and move on. The things I learn and try out stay with me and are typically a part of my everyday life.

Ultimately the only thing that has never changed is the deep rooted longing and desire to be a mother. Everything else may change but being a mother won't. I am a proud mother to three daughters under the age of 5 and I hope to be the mother to many more. I am also married to a pierced pastor, Daniel. We are in our 20's and live in an old post-Victorian home in the urban core of Kansas City.

My life has had its ups and downs. My mom died from breast cancer in 2004 and I've had two miscarriages. Promoting businesses that serve a cause is a major motivation factor behind this blog.

I am also a leader on a pregnancy forum at a major medical website, My username there is JoyRenee. I have brought many innovative ideas to the forums at MedHelp and have a wonderful repertoire with the members and faculty.

The types of items we test out, review and giveaway include but are not limited to: organic products, foods and goodies, baby toys and teethers, baby gear, baby and children clothing, women undergarments, jewelry, household products (cleaning), appliances, kitchenware, cookware, bath and beauty products, styling products, products for nursing women, products for baby-wearing, boutique items for children, etc.
There really isn't anything we won't try, test out and give an honest review about.

Please note that your contributions for a review are necessity. I cannot do a review for you without the item to review. I do not receive or accept monetary contributions for reviews, whether I have the item or not. All reviews are my honest and critical opinion based on my experience with your company. The product itself is sent as a gesture of good faith from your company to me for doing the review for you. Receiving products does not affect my review of your product.

Some things I review include: the ease of browsing your website, the ease of checkout, your customer service (if needed), product quality, product longevity and overall experience.


I promote blogs via Facebook, Twitter,,, forums, blog parties and blog link ups, word of mouth and anywhere else I can spread the news about my reviews and giveaways. 


The real passion behind this blog is how much I love to give stuff away! You may submit an item for review and it is your choice to offer a giveaway. It is the responsibility of the company to get the winnings sent to the winner. Shipping should be free; the winner shouldn’t have to pay anything for their winnings.
