A Makeover & Giveaway!

Update:  Danielle, @mama0fboys on IG, won this giveaway (I posted it on IG)!  Thanks to all who participated, it was fun!  Stay tuned for more . . .


This little blog that I started in December 2009 was due for a makeover and today it got one!  I have been collaborating with Whitney from Heart & Arrow Design for a couple of weeks, and she uploaded the final product this afternoon and I love it!

Our design incorporates my husband's Native American heritage, is super southwest (and it's fitting because I've lived in Arizona for over 25 years), has a modern feel and I adore the colors.  I decided to keep my original blueberry picture also because it is such a part of this blog and my life; it is, after all, the reason I started this thing (read more about this on the Pregnancy Loss link on the right). 

Now, because my blog got a makeover, I thought I'd give your little ones a chance for a makeover also - a SHOE makeover!  A "fresh" look for both my blog and for your baby/kid!  I am giving away a pair of Freshly Picked moccasins, courtesy of Freshly Picked (any color/size depending on availability), to one winner and this is all you have to do:
Follow this blog.

Follow me on Instagram:  allisonpants

Comment below with why your little one needs a shoe makeover and include your preference for size and color from their site.  (FYI:  Lemon wears a size 4 - she's 11 months and has a little over a 4 inch foot.  If you'd like to read my review on Freshly Picked moccs, go here.)  If for some reason you can't comment (we've had trouble in the past) email me your comment instead.

Share my giveaway picture on Instagram and tag your picture #freshblueberry or share this blog post on your own blog and email me the link to your post:  alittleblueberry@yahoo.com
A winner will be chosen at random, on Friday, using the Random True Number Generator.  Good luck!

And, as always, thank you for your support dear readers/followers - I truly appreciate YOU!

  1. I have a baby girl due next month and I would DIE to win a pair of FP moccs for her! I would choose the copper moccs in an itty bitty size 1 for my newborn!

    I'm a 19 year old single mom of a beautiful 1 year old girl named Allayna. I have been reading your blogs for a while now and I only can wish I could afford to dress my daughter as cute and unique (like Lemon!) but instead my daughter is stuck in Carter's clothes and really cheap bad shoes. Winning a pair of Freshly Picked Moccosins would be AWESOME and I would love to have my daughter in something worth showing off.
    She would probably need a size 5 and preferably the pink ones <3

  5. Comment for Crystal S:

    Ingrid really
    does not need a shoe makeover but she would sure love one!!! Mama just
    can't resist getting her cute new things to wear! I love the smoke
    color or the grape. She's only 4 months now but I will play it safe
    and go with a bigger size just in case so we will say size 4 as well.

  7. OMG, I love the design, girl! It's VERY you and so clean and fresh. Great work!! Mwah! (I won't enter into the actual giveaway because I'm weird about posting stuff like this on IG and my blog---no clue why, that's just how I am!) ;)

  8. I've been following you & Lemon on instagram for quite some time now! I've fallen in love with all of the mocs she has and I would love a pair for my daughter, Aaliyah. She starstarted walking this month, and we need some cute soft-sole shoes which are surprisingly pretty hard to find. I'd love to win a tan, brown, or white pair in a size 5!!

  10. Dwyant13 on IG-Danielle Thiessen- my 5 month Oliver needs these moccasins! I wish we could afford shoes at this price for such a little one. They are too die for and I loved reading your review of them recently. They look so comfy and go with everything so this would be so awesome to win so he could have a shoe makeover for an outfit for everyday of the week! Love your blog! Love this giveaway! Thanks for the opportunity! I would pick red rock suede size 5 (so he can wear them longer) for my Oliver if we win! Thanks!

  11. Vera's definitely in need of a shoe makeover she only has a few pairs (of diff types) but no moccs. Im a part time wahm so I try to get her used clothing/shoes. I would love to win her a pair or grape or cobalt blue fp moccs (size 5) . Thanks for the opportunity and love the new look.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Liv doesn't currently own any moccs, and this girl LOVES shoes! They are the first thing she asks about every morning, and would sleep in them if I'd let her! I would never be able to afford a pair of Freshly Picked if I didn't win them! We would love either the platinum, walnut, or smoke color in a size 7 so they would match all of her fall wardrobe! :)

  13. Miss Edie is in need of a shoe makeover in that she is just in need of some shoes. Poor girl was blessed with an old school mama who thinks shoes are only for the moving and shaking babies. Some Freshly Picked Moccs would be a prefect way to start what will one day be a large collection of stylish footwear (specifically, the grape suede or chrome Moccs in size 4). (By the way out Instagram name is @lavieenedie).

  14. I was just looking at the Freshly Picked moccs the other day, so I am very excited about this giveaway! I love following your little fam on ig and this new blog design seems to be so "you." My baby girl is due in September and it would be great to have a pair of moccs for her to wear at least through next year! The Bubble Gum Suede would be so sweet for my little girl, but alas, they are sold out, so my next choice is the Turquoise Suede, size 4. Thank you!

  15. I found you on IG about 3 months ago and have loved following along. The design of you blog looks great! Looking forward to a chance to win those adorable mocs. My baby girl is 11 months just this week!

  16. Wow, what a precious giveaway! I would LOVE a pair of Freshly Picked mocs for my son, who turns 1 year old on June 26th :) This is a very special birthday for all of us, as he was born 10 weeks early and spent the first 50 days of his life in the NICU. This past year has has its ups and downs but my little boy has conquered every obstacle in his path. He is my hero! We want to make his birthday extra special, and a pair of Butterscotch mocs (size 4) would be a perfect gift!

    xoxo,
    Alison

  22. Our little Pearl needs a pair of moccs because they would be so cute on her! Also, because she has really started to cruise around using the furniture and I believe she'll be walking in no time! I believe Pearl is a size 4. We'd like red rock suede but I saw those were sold out. Sand suede is beautiful too!

    1. I'm going to post your second comment here, under your first:

      I follow you on my IG shop account account as well. (2boysclothes) Since I have 2 boys, of course my older son needs some Freshly Picked moccs too! :) We also purchased him a used pair that are getting too small "/ Again, we LOVE these moccs! And were surprised how much our older son loves wearing them too (he hates shoes!) I would love the Cobalt in a size 9 for him. Thank you for the opportunity!!

  30. Obsessed over your blog, too cute! I recently discovered freshly picked moccasins and I've read so many amazing reviews, and I have been dying to try them out on my little man. He hates all shoes and I have a feeling these will suite his chubby little feet. Evan would love the color smoke in a size 3. Nessae10 is my Instagram! :)

    Colton so needs some moccs, would you believe me if I told you he doesn't have a pair?! I would love to win this because honestly - I want so badly to get a pair for him, but they are out of my budget at the moment...and I still want my little dude to be stylish :)
    I would pick Weathered Brown or Sand Suede if WB was unavailable...in size 4!

  32. Oh, Princess Ellie totally would love a pair of moccs... on the verge of walking and needs some new shoes to show off on those walkin' feet! She probably would want sand suede, size 3, but her bed time is 7 so she's been out a few hours... guess I get to make the decision for her ;)

  33. Comment for Amanda S:

    We would love a pair of freshly picked!!! My little will be 4 months Friday and she still fits in NB shoes! Grass suede would be right up our alley as we love green :) in a size 2 I'm thinking (since we're so little) but really any colored freshly picked would make our day!

  34. Comment for Jenny Jones:

    I would love to win a pair of moccasins for Braxton. I never have the extra money I support Braxton pretty much alone. I never have extra money after bills, gas and getting us necessities. I follow you on IG my name is duhhhjenny and on Vine my name is duhhhhjenny. If we won Braxton said he likes the brown pair in a size 4. He has very chubby feet. He usually wears a 3 but I\'m giving his chubby feet room to get into them lol. Thank you for this chance!!

  35. I want my little guy to win the shoes because honestly, he needs shoes! I can't buy them fast enough for his insanly fast growing rate. We would take great care of them and then put them back on the resale market when he grows out of them ;) Thanks so much!

  50. Comment for Wyatte L:

    Jos needs some moccs because right now she's a barefooted California baby and rocks bare feet 110% of the time. But my lovely husband is quitting his job (yikes!) and starting a new business venture in Utah. Yes, freezing Utah. We'll be picking up and moving from the sunny California weather to frozen Utah. My babies poor toesies need some warmth!

    If we win we'd love a size 4 sand suede. Or if the smoke leather isn't sold out we'd love those! Thanks! Love you and your blog! Sharing to both my personal and my shop!

  57. Comment for Christie P:

    I have always loved these moccasins but have not brought myself to buy any since Dominic's feet are growing so fast. If I had a choice I would get the ebony mocs in a size 10. These seem like they would be great shoes to have when you are in a hurry and need to throw something on quick. Since we have tile in our house these would make great slippers
