Funky Fleece all year long ~ $265 Giveaway!

It didn’t surprise me in the least to learn that the fabulous Funky Fleece company was Canadian. Nobody knows cold like us Canucks and getting cozy under some soft warm fleece is the best cure for it! And while Funky Fleece carries the best in fleece blankets, hats, mitts, ponchos and leg warmers did you know that they carry items for all seasons, even summer?

I’ll be honest, in the Mom vs the Boys family we don’t put our fleece away for the warm weather. We love to sneak into fleece pants and cuddle under blankies on cool summer nights, but I was really impressed with the fun selection of fair weather items available. Like the funky baby onesies, sunglasses and pillow case dresses. Okay, let’s pause here for a second. As a mom of three boys and not one girl, these pillowcase dresses seriously make my ovaries ache! They are so fabulously adorable that it makes me want try for that girl!!! And then I remember that my Grandma had 6 boys and I come back to my senses, but if you are lucky enough to have a pint sized princess in your house, these dresses are a must have!!!

Funky Fleece sent me a wonderful assortment of goodies to get to know them better.

An Adult Sized double sided fleece blanket
– The large blanket is a really good size, measuring in at 6ftx5ft and comes with two layers of soft thick fleece for extra warmth. One side is a fun print, for us it’s brown camo (those boys again) and the other a dark brown. This was supposed to be for watching movies in the cold basement but my oldest has scooped it up and won’t let it leave his bed.

Beach Wrap with Coconut Ring– Funky Fleece Beach Wraps come in two different styles and an assortment of colours. I chose the Turquoise because it’s so bright and beachy and one of my suits has some matching colours in it. I was happy to find that the wrap is super easy to put on and fit great. I’m looking forward to wearing this at the beach this summer and if Hubster is reading, maybe he would like to wisk me away for our 10 yr anniversary this fall???

Funky Necklace– This was probably my favourite category at funky fleece. I could spend all day looking at the fun watches, bracelets and earrings. The necklace I received is a multi pink diamond shape and I was really impressed to find that the colour and design was on both sides. My necklace pendants are always getting turned around and this one looks pretty either way.

  10. Um… yes, and I did, and it was amazing.

  66. karin Dollery says:

    Absolutely YES, it would have been a fabulous learning experience. And experience a lifestyle so foreign to us and to realize how lucky we are. A great chance to realize how others suffer and how important it is for everyone to do their part. I so wish the oppurtunity had been available to me.

  70. Laurie B says:

    I would love to have gone on a youth action trip when I was younger. It would have given me so many more outlooks on the different lifestyles around the world and how each and everyone has to adapt to different situation. Would definitely have been a life changing experience

  78. jessica edwards says:

  79. Samorjj says:

    I would have loved to do a trip like this. It just wasn’t part of our realm when I was a kid.

  124. As a young person I would not have enjoyed that. To this day I don’t enjoy traveling and would have been too scared to be so far from home.

  125. I would have loved to do something like that as a youth… as a mother, I sure wouldn’t want my kids to go though.

  126. jennifer n says:

    when i was younger i wasn’t prepared to visit such a place.

  127. Heather A says:

    Any travel is such a wonderful experience for young people and the opportunity to help in a third world country would have been most welcome in my youth.

  128. ewhatley says:

    I was not very adventurous as a child so that trip would not have been appealing. But now, as an adult, I would LOVE to go!

  129. I’d have loved to go to a third-world country as a teen. I think it gives a great perspective on our own society and “problems”, especially as teens tend often to be a bit dramatic. 🙂

  130. Jennifer says:

    I think I would have enjoyed that when I was young, absolutely. Now that I’m “older”, I have too many responsibilities & deadlines – Oh, to be young again! 😉

  132. Michelle Spayde says:

    I would have love to go when I was younger!

  134. Michelle H. says:

    Yes, I would have.

  135. Admitedly, I would not have wanted to go on such a trip when I was younger. I was a total punk – seriously, shaved head, pink hair, piercings – the works. I was an ARtist and only did things that reflected that.

  139. Wanda Jean says:

    I would of loved the chance to travel and maybe even make a small difference wherever I went

  140. Naomi Sturgis says:

    I would have loved to! What an amazing experience for a youth, thanks for this giveaway!

  141. Stephanie Hungerford says:

    While they sound like fun for most kids. I would not have wanted to go to a 3rd world country on a youth action trip while I was young. Not because I do not think they are a very good Idea but I was extremely shy. My mom had to send my sister with me just to get me to go with my church to youth camp that lasted 1 week. I was just very scared of people back then. I still am shy but I at least can functions some what in the world today.

  142. Rebecca Wood says:

  143. kate turner says:

    I have never been but would have loved the chance.
