Covered Goods Review

When it comes to nursing as a mother I always want the best products out there for my baby and myself. When it comes to nursing covers I always had a hard time finding the right one. I always found a lot of them being stiff, flimsy, small or way to big or just flat out ugly. I found myself spending way to much money on nursing cover until I found this amazing company called covered goods. 

Covered Goods offer a product called multi-use nursing cover. Covered Goods is different from other nursing covers because they offer more than just a nursing cover which is nice. Use can use this product as a car seat cover, scarf, and a shopping cart cover. What other nursing cover offers you this variety of use. Let me tell you not many. 

What I like about this product that it is soft, comfortable, and stretchy fabric. What I absolutely  love about this cover is the design. The product that I was sent for a review looks a different in person than in the picture. The grey is a little darker and the flowers pop out more in person. It is very elegant and I don't mind using it in public. I also like how I can use this cover as a carseat cover also. This cover is easy to put on and take seconds and you don't have to fight with it make it work or make it comfortable. When you are using this cover the baby has never been able to kick it off or move it so nothing shows that you don't want it to. This cover doesn't come in different sizes it only comes in one. 

This product overall is amazing and high quality. It is one of the best covers that I have tried so far. It very well designed, flexible, and great quality. Overall momma out there want his product because you can use this product in different ways and overall it saves you money. I would highly recommended it and you can find their product at the link below.

Newbie Shade Review

I know in my family we love to travel, but when you have a infant in the car you do not realize how hot the car can get during the summer even with the air conditioning. Can you imagine on a nice sunny day that the sun shines in and could make your baby fussy. I have had that happen a few times. 

I was introduced to Newbie Shade where this product helps shade your infant so the sun is not shining directly on your child. This product is simple to use. Simply fasten the buckles around the front and back headrests. This proved shade for your baby. What I really like about this shade is that is useful and stylish. Newbie Shade offers a variety of different designs to choose from. The one that i received was the owl newbie shade. When I took it out of the package and it very soft and fits perfectly in the car. It is well made with no snags or no strings coming out the side. It well made and high quality. I like how one side is own and the other side is yellow design which is pretty. 

When you receive your newbie shade you want to make sure you wash it before you use it.  When you wash your Newbie shade for the first time you want to make sure you wash it on gentle cycle and in cold water. Do not use bleach on this product. When drying this product put it on the line to dry or put in dryer on low setting. 

Overall I think this product is amazing idea for your infant. This helps protect your infant from the hot beating sun on your road trip. The only concern I have is that you want to make sure that the newbie shade is secure and buckled around the headrest. I do believe this is a product that you want to invest in if your have a little one. They also have a variety of different shades you can choose from. You can find their website at the link below.

Whatnot Toys Review


Recently I was introduced to a company called Whatnot toys. Honestly before now I never heard of them before. When I found out what they had to offer I knew my kids would fall in love. The two lines that they offered my kids to review are the Royale Filly line and Zomlings. 

When we first opened the box we took out the Filly Royale because my daughter was super excited. She was excited to look at the play set first. She was excited and told me how she like that there was different ponies that came n the set with different accessories. She had to play with it right away. When my daughter was playing with them they past the Emmy test. By passing the Emmy test you get an A in my book. Usually toys do not last long when it comes to her. She is more on the tomboy side and likes to play rough sometimes.

We also received from this line was about 20 blind bags. What is a blind bag you ask? Well it a bag where you can't see through and it a surprise to see what is it in. My daughter has been obsessed with this type of thing. Naturally when she saw all of these bling bags she spent hours looking through them and studying before she opened them. Each blind bag game with a Royale Filly, hair clip and a poster. My daughter thought they where very cute and she was very excited to see if she would receive any duplicates and which different ones she would get. The quality was of these fillies were decent and the accessories held up during the Emmy test. Overall she was very excited with this toy and it kept her occupied for hours. 

The next product that we received in our review package was Zomling. My son was very excited to look through the box and see what he got. My daughter on the other hand did not like the Zomling as much. He open the exclusive tin first and saw what was inside. He used the tin for his other Zomling from the blind bags. He had a fun time opening all the blind bags to see if he got the same Zomling or different one. He also like the Zomlings in the Town because the came with little houses that he played with. Over all the house and boxes were sturdy and they did not break. Also the Zomling characters held up pretty well and they did not break.  He also had a great time bringing them on the bus and showing his friends the different one that he collected. 

Overall both product were great quality and my kiddos enjoyed them very much. I would highly recommend them and you can find them at any store below.








You can find Whatnot Toys at Toys R Us, Fred Meyers, Amazon, and many more. You can search for the nearest retailer in your area on their website

The Magic Tales

Last year I got married to my amazing husband. My husband has a daughter and I have two children myself. We were looking on ways to bring our families together and start new family traditions together. Recently when I came across this company I knew their idea would be amazing for our family. This would be our new family tradition. 

The Magic tales is an interactive product that celebrates the "night before." They have values, imagination and family tradition based in the books. They have a selection of books like the night before Easter, the night before Christmas, the night before Chanukah, the night before Halloween, the night before your birthday.

I was excited when we received The night before Christmas and The night before you Birthday for review. When I took the books out of the box I like how they are thick. The one thing I was worried about is that I want to keep this book safe and sound. It has a pocket where you can protect your book and has an area for the special holiday dust and birthday dust. 

We first looked at The Magical Tale of Santa Dust. When I first taken the book out I was very excited to look at it and read it. I just had a feeling before I looked at it that this would be amazing fit for our family. The Magical Tale of Santa Dust is a holiday tale of two small children whose house Santa has never been able to find. It is Christmas Eve again, and the children fear that another year that Santa will not come and visit. This is a fun adventure that I guarantee that your family will fall in love with just like my family has. What is amazing bonus is that they also provide you with your own pouch that comes with special dust of your own. 

The second book that we took out was The Magical Tale of Birthday Dust- A Birthday tradition. I like the idea of this book and it a fun idea for your kids when it is their birthdays. We have three kiddos so it will be super special for them on their birthdays. In this book bears are the theme of this tale. When three cousins decide to have their birthday party on the same day,the plan to have on big celebration that hit a snag of course. When some of their guest don't show up they are left feeling disappointed. The magic pouch with Birthday dust and a puzzling note will turn into one adventure and make it the best birthday their is. This book also comes with a Birthday Dust that you can sprinkle the night before to make all their birthday wishes come true.

I can't tell you how amazing and genius this idea is. I wish that I had it when I was a child because I absolutely would of loved reading these books and especially with my own magic santa or birthday dust. The dust make the books on a whole different level. It brings the book alive and the kids can be creative and live out what the story is telling them. Not only that but it brings the family together for special family bonding. You can find these amazing books at their website below.

Doterra Review

Lately all of my friends have been raving about essential oils. The girls at work had an essential oil party and of course I was clueless what that was even about. I know that some of my co-workers even brought some essential oils to work and than it sparked my curiosity. I looked into Doterra and they offer a variety of different essential oils. 

If you are new to essential oils like me let me give you some useful facts that you need to know. There are three easy ways to use your essential oils. You can use them aromatic, topical or internal. There are all types of essential oils that can be used for variety of things. When I was looking through their pamphlet they had essential oils for digestive health, restful sleep, massage blend, immune support, green cleaning, simple focus, release tension, cellular support, pregnancy and baby, Seasonal support and outdoor relief. To me it just amazing on how many different oils their are and can help in many different ways. 

We were sent two types of essential oil to try out and I was excited to see what this was all about. We received to 5ml bottles to try. One bottle was peppermint and the other bottle was wild orange. 

Since both bottles help support immune, respiratory, digestive and Limbic System support. I had my husband try one and I tried one for myself. I gave him the peppermint one and I kept the wild orange. I personally love the smell of the Wild Orange sent better. 

I explained that it could help my husband aches and we placed a small amount on the specific areas. He said that it was easy to apply and it did not burn or have any problems. He said that this product really helped with the cramping that he had in his lower back. He been using this product for a week and he been noticing a difference. He is now a believer in essential oils. 

I personally used the the peppermint oil in my diffuser when I had a heavy chest and it seem to help relax me. I laid down and it relaxed me and seemed to help. I am not sure exactly how but it did. Which I am grateful. I was surpassed and realized essential oils are amazing and they come in handy.

I will be looking into more about these oils and which ones they have to offer. You can find more about Doterra essential oils with the link below
