Jack N' Jill Review

 

I am always looking for the best products out there for my children. I know that I have been trying to get my children into healthy habits while they are wrong. My four year old is harder to get him wanting to brush his teeth. It seems like he is always in a hurry. On the hand my daughter is always begging me to let her brush her teeth like five time a day. She learned very early how to brush her teeth. My biggest fear is what is in the toothpaste and is it harmful. Majority of the time I try to get them to spit it out but we know most of the time they end up swallowing the toothpaste. I really do not want my children swallowing any bad that can hurt them.

I am excited to say I found a place called Jack n' Jill natural Toothpaste. I am very excited that they have decided to expand to the US. Which is very nice to us. They are very successful in Australia and the UK. I received two toothpastes and a cute toothbrush for review. The two flavors that I received where raspberry and blueberry. I already new which kid to try which toothpaste on. Then the toothbrush that I received was 100 percent cornstarch. My daughter seemed to really like the raspberry toothpaste due to after brushing her teeth she said yum. You have to love two year old's. Than my four year old loves blueberry tasting stuff, so i let him try that one and it seemed to be a hit. He is very picky when it comes to any kind of toothpaste he usually will spit anything out and say yuck. He actually did not make any comment and brushed his teeth. Which that should mean he actually liked the flavor. I also like how these toothpaste are organic so that is a major plus and I do not have worry that they are ingesting any bad chemicals. 

My daughter loved the toothbrush. For the first day she had to take it and show everyone. Then show them how you brush your teeth. Let me tell you she is a character. This toothbrush is biodegradable and compostable which is a major plus. I would highly recommend these products. My children likes their products and said they are better then the toothpaste they have. What are you waiting for if you have children go and check this site out already!! http://www.jackandjillkids.com/index.php






Jellybean Rug Review and Giveaway

My son has been asking me to look for a rug for his room lately. My son is four year old and he loves to play in his room and also he like to snuggle up in the corner and look at books and the pictures. One day on TV he saw a show that a child was sitting on small rug during story time. Well now you know why he wants to sit on a rug in his room. Well I have been searching for awhile to find a kid friendly rug that would fit his personality. Well when I came across the site Jellybean rug they had a great variety of rugs. 

I was able to choose one of their rugs to review. Well I let my son choose the one he liked the most out to review. He choose Ark. I really thought it was adorable when I saw the pick and was hoping that it would live up the picture. When I received the Jellybean rug in the mail it did not hold up to the potential it actually beat the potential. When I opened the package it was so beautiful. I was a huge sucker for this rug. This rug would also be great for a nursery or kids room. When my son saw it he said can I see it for a minute. I said sure and he ran to his room and made a spot for it and sat on it and started looking at his books. This goes very well in his room and it is great quality because it holds up and has not rip or any damage to it. Also this rug does not irritate my son skin which is a great plus since he wants to sit on it and have it in his room. We had an accident the second day with this rug. My son was super upset and said it was ruined and he did not know what to do. Well he brought some juice in his room and spilled it on his rug. It was noticeable and I was kind of worried if it could handle the washer. It said it could be washed but I have heard that before. When I washed it there was no problems. It held up well and looked good as new and no fading. 

I would highly recommend these rugs. They are very cute, great quality and also has a great variety to choose from. They have adult, teens and children styles. Something for everyone. If you want to see more of their rugs you can visit them at madisonatmain.com

Also they are giving one of their rugs away to a lucky reader

Toilet Tree Professional Skin Care System Review

I never really care about my skin much until after I had my daughter. My skin has always look great to me until after I had my daughter. Now I have been trying to find product that will help my skin and help it make my skin look batter. I have heard a lot of complements on ToiletTree Products. ToiletTree Product carries a Professional Skin Care System that looked interesting to me. I was quite not sure if it was for me or would it irritate my skin. I was excited though when I found out I was able to review the Professional Skin Care System. I had the choice to choose Pink, White or Bule. Out of the three choices I decided that I was going to choose the color pink.

One think that I noticed with shipping that it arrived fast in my opinion which is a good thing. When I took this out of the box I was quite intrigued with the options that his product does. I could not wait to try this product to see if it would really help and make my skin look healthier. The Professional Skin Care System helps stimulate your skin and help renew it and help remove the dead skin cells to expose healthier skin on your face. I want my skin to look the best it can be since I will be finishing college and starting a new career. I want my skin to look healthy and nice when I start my new job. Professional Skin Care System is going to help me get to that step. I like how the Professional Skin Care System offer several attachments for different types of care, such as body brush, face brush soft and medium and pumice stone. These are interchangeable rotating heads so they are very easy to change. I first tried the body brush and let me tell you I really liked the body brush. After using the body brush my skin felt great. My skin felt great and started looking great after a couple usages of the body brush. Then I tried the face brush's the medium and the soft. I would have to favor the soft brush more due to my face being sensitive and can get irritated easily. My face has felt smooth and less breakout which I found amazing. My face has not looked this good in awhile.  Lets not get on the subject on my feet. They where terrible before I used the pumice stone. I did not think that this would help my feet at all because my feet are beyond horrible.  After trying this product on my feet several time. I seen a huge difference and my feet do not feel rough like they used to. I was highly impressed.

After reviewing the Professional Skin Care System I would highly recommend it. There are many benefits to it. The number one benefit to the Professional Skin Care System is that it made myself feel better. So if I feel better about myself that this product is great. If you are trying to have better skin I would highly recommend looking into this product. You can find their information at

Tommee Tippee Drinking Cup Review

I know there are days that I dread giving my two year old a sippy cup or any kind of cup because it seems like what is inside the cup gets everywhere. Even though they say they are spill proof. I had the opportunity to review the Tommee Tippee Drinking cup. Well they say that they are spill proof and would not leak. So I had to try this product to see if this one leaked or not. I will let you know that all my sippy cups leak so at this point I was not sure if I wanted to believe that they where spill proof.

Well I received to of their Tommee Tippee Drinking cups for review. They came in a set of two. What I like about these cups is that they can come in gender for example I got two girl cups and they had girly designs on them. I received a pink and light blue cup. When I first saw these cups I loved the appearance of them. Tommee Tippee Drinking cups are different from others. They look like a sippy cup but have a plastic cover over them. then there is a lit put you can flip it over and there is a straw!. What I like about this feature that you can open and shut and it tucks the straw inside. The true test for me does this leak. Well I tried and tried and it did not leak and it was truly spill proof. I even held it upside down and I also was shaking it and nothing came out. A great plus to these cups they are also insulated which is a major plus. If I am going a trip it going to help keep my kiddos drinks cold. Also these cups are dishwasher safe. How amazing is that I love how I can put the cups in the dishwasher and make sure they get a great cleaning. They are also BPA free which I know that is very important.

I have fallen in love with these cups. Also my daughter will not go back to any other cup. She loves it and it is easy for her told hold. She also brings it everywhere she goes. It is easy for my two year old to open and close by her self. Which is a major plus. I am going to invest in more of these cups because they are simply the best that I have used so far. Plus it prevents me from constantly cleaning after the cup messes that others make. If you want to find more information on their cups please check their products at http://www.tommeetippee.us/explora_truly_spill_proof_cups.html

The Juppy comes in three different colors such as blue, pink an black. Then you also have the chance to personalized the Juppy with the childs name.  What is the Juppy baby walker you make ask? Well the Juppy baby walker has easy adjustable straps that accommodate your height whether you are short or tall. What I liked about the Juppy it has soft hand grips for your benefit. What I also like about the Juppy it has a zipper in the back and then Velcro that goes over the zipper. This is placed in the back of the Juppy for safety reason. 

What my thought about Juppy where great. Majority of the time we do not realize how much damage we are doing to our back by scrunching over and helping our little one to walk. I wish I had this when my daughter was two year old and it would help my back. Well we tried this out on my friends son. My only worried about this walker was would it fit him comfortable. My worries about items i put him in is would it pinch his legs. In this case it fit him perfectly. I was amazed on how much he enjoyed the Juppy. It was also very easy to control and hold and my back felt better. I woud highly recommend this product. It will also help your back also and cause less strain. I also like how durable this product is and that you can personalize it also.

Daddy Scrubs (Daddy Diaper Pack) review



Well Valentines Day is coming up. I wanted to share a fun fact about myself not a lot of you may know. That Valentines Day is a very special day for me. I have one special Valentine and that is my son who will be turning five this year on Valentines Day. I also have a few friends that are due close to Valentines day also and have introduced them to a special store called Daddy Scrubs. This is one of my new favorite shops that have very unique gifts for the new father. I already was able to review the amazing Daddy Scrubs that are very comfortable. I was able to review their Daddy Diaper Pack. I thought this was genius when I first saw it. When I think of a diaper bag I consider majority of the diaper bags girly. Not a lot of men like the diaper bags or carrying them around. Well Daddy Scrubs has solved that issue and made a Daddy Diaper Pack that solved that issue. This more gear for men who need something to carry baby supplies in. 

I received a Daddy Diaper Pack in the mail. When I opened to check out the backpack I was highly amazed on the quality of the backpack. Well I took it out of the package and started checking it out. I noticed that the backpack had many compartment and pockets inside. Which is a must have when you need to go somewhere and you have a baby/toddler. In this backpack you have one main compartment of course and then there is six additional compartments. For the new expectant first time parents you are probably think that is two many. You can never have to many pockets it always seems that I am running out of space to pack extra stuff that I may need in case of an accident. There is also a side storage space for a sippy cup which I am currently using for my daughter or you could use it for a bottle. This would make a great bag to pack for the hospital and pack the extras that you may need. What I usually do for my daughter is have a bag just to go where I have and extra set of clothes for each child, diapers, wipes, band aides, sippy and a couple of small toys.  Also this would be a great bag to have prepared for toilet trees items for the hospital visit and extra set of clothes in case in the middle of night you have to go the hospital because you are your wife is in labor. I would give this A+ rating in my books. I would say you definitely need to invest in a Daddy Diaper Pack. I love mine. 

Daddy Scrubs have many of great products that I would recommend checking them out. They would make great shower gift for expectant parents. Although if you know someone that is pregnant this would be a great Valentines Day gift to get them. Also their customer service is great and they are just all around a great company!! You can check them out at http://www.daddyscrubs.com/

OBLO is a sphere that has several layers to it. Each layer is a different color. It is easy taking it apart but the challenge is trying to put this sphere back together. 

Recently my son has taken a huge interested in different kind of puzzles. My son is only four years old and he amazes me what he can figure out and how he can take things apart and put them back together. Today when I received the OBLO it was not in it's box for long. My son immedetely had to take the OBLO Sphere out of the box and had to explore the game. When we opened it he spent a long time playing with it. What amazed me after playing with the OBLO Spheres he finally figured out the puzzle. I was highly impressed. This is a great quality and fun toy. After figuring it out he undid it and told me to do it I had fun putting it back together again. I forgot what order they went into. Although I see how much fun my son had with this game. I would highly recommend this toy for any age child and it teaches them fine motor, visual processing and logical thinking.

Toy State James Bond 007

 Sometimes I have difficulties trying to figure out what to get my son and my dad on Valentines Day. Well on Valentines Day is also my son birthday so it is extra special for him. My son is gong to be five this year and he is starting to get into the different kind of cars. Well Toy State just recenetly came out with a whole new line 007 James Bond Cars. Well although my son does not understand who James Bond is at the moment because he is only four. My dad loves James Bond and anything that represents it.

Everyone knows who James Bond and the code name 007. What is amazing that in 2012 marked the 50th anniversary of the first James Bond Movie. Also in 2012 it marked the release of the 23 movie. To me that is just amazing. Toy State wanted to commemorate their anniversary so they came out with a collection of the iconic James Bond 007 automobiles. Toy State has also made sure the added as much detail to each of the cars to make them realistic as possible
 
Well I was given the chance to review two of their new 007 James Bond Cars. I received the MI6 Lotus Esprit and the Secret Service Ashton Martin Vanquish. 

The first car that we opened up was the MI6 Lotus Esprit. Of course if you love 007 James Bond you will recognize this car. My son gravitated towards this car the most. On top of the care there where three buttons that you can press. The first button sounded like a car starting up and screeching. Than it took off and car went and then screech and stopped. The second button is where the headlights and the back light flashed while playing the 007 James Bond music. This was my favorite part because I thought that was pretty awesome. My son also liked it and he said it was super hero music. The third button is where the car was honking and the lights where flashing. My son thought this care was the most amazing car there was because it had all these features to it. I thought this car was sturdy and great quality and would make a great toy for a child.

The second car that I received was the Secret Service Ashton Martin Vanquish.  In the British Secret Service R/C and is controlled by a joy stick. My son love to have mo-control cars and rive them everywhere. When we took this car out of the package I was not allowed to touch the car. He also loved this car to. Also my dad enjoyed this car also. Both of them spent hours playing with this car. What I like about the Secret Service Ashton Martin Vanquish is that there are two modes to play with this car. You can press the button on the car to get the music and sounds to play. Or while you are driving the car it triggers the James Bond 007 music and sounds. Which I thought that was pretty neat. I believe that they also nailed this car to a t. I also was surprised on how fast this car moved and how well you could control it. Now I have to figure out how I get a turn to play with this toy.


What I like about the James Bond 007 line of toy cars is that it can be for just about anyone. I know that my dad loved these car just as much as my son. Everyone loves James Bond 007 and this could be used as a toy or collection item also. This would make a great birthday/valentines day gift for my four year old who will be five. It also would be a great valentines day gift for my dad also. If I did give my dad the cars he would love him because he always enjoyed going to James Bond 007 movies. I know my son would always borrow it. Although the amazing gift of all it brought my dad and my son closer together and them enjoying the cars together in different ways. You can find more infomation about the special James Bond 007 collection at.  http://dev.2013.toystate.allengerritsen.com/our-toys/james-bond-007/

Obol The Orginal Crispy Bowl Review

I have a four year old who always let his cereal get soggy in the morning and then will not eat it due to being soggy. I have tried almost everything to prevent this from happening but in reality you can not. Well that is what I thought until I was introduced to the Obol. Now this solves all my problems with my four year old.
 
I was excited to see if this actually worked and was excited that I was able to review this product. When I received the package I was excited to open and see exactly what was inside. I received a green and purple Obol and one of their spoons. So the real test was this morning when I put the milk in the deeper compartment and his cheerios in the upper compartment. Well it seemed to do the trick. My son in the morning seems to get occupied when he is trying to eat. Well he ended up eating all his cereal and not wasting any of it at all. Which was a major plus because I hate waiting food. My four year old loved the concept on how he could take a spoon full of cereal and then dipped it in his milk and crunched away. His quote to me. "Mommy this is the best bowl ever my cereal does not get nasty and it makes me happy". Gotta love four year old's.
 
There are so many different possibilities with these Obol's you can use them for about just anything. You could use it for chips and salsa, ice cream and fruit, anything that you can come up with. Well my daughter and I like to use the Obol for dunking our cookies in milk. This is a nice way to have your cookies in once compartment and have milk in the lower one. It becomes less of a hassle. I always hated having a glass of milk and trying to get my cookie down in the glass and back out without getting soggy. With the Obol the picture shows how easy it is to dunk your cookies in the milk. 

When we received the spoon I did not know if my kids would use it. Sometimes they are very pick. My daughter actually loves it and it easier for her to grip because the handle is like a ball which is easier for her to handle. The only problem sometimes for her is the mouth part is kind of big. Although I also like using it and it perfect for me.

I would say if you like cereal in the morning or you like dunking cookies. This would be the perfect bowl for you!. This will help prevent any sogginess to your breakfast or snack. I would highly recommend this product. You can find more information out at http://www.obol.co/

Exuviance Daily Antioxidant Peel CA10

This was a very interesting review for me. From previously posts you are aware of that I try to make my skin the best it can be. So I am constantly searching for new products that are out there. NeoStrata Company is located in NJ and provides a range of clinically proven dermatologist developed skin care brands. The Brands include NeoStrata, Exuviance, CoverBlend, NeoCeuticals and NeoStrata Therapeutics.
 
I was able to review Exuviance Daily Antioxidant Peel CA10 from NeoStrata. I was very interested to see if this product would help my skin. NeoStrata's clinical study saw 100 percent smoother texture. I was very impressed in what I heard about this product and at times it can be difficult for me to take care of my skin on a daily basis. Being a single of two it can be difficult. When I heard about the one step daily peel sounded like a dream come true for me. The peel will gently exfoliate and add a powerful dose of protective antioxidants with a high performance Citric Acid molecule. This will help your skin on a everyday basis and helps prevent future signs of aging. At times my skin has a hard time absorbing moisture. This will help with that and also help with a smooth application of make up. I am very pleased with this product. It is very easy process. In the picture above you see the bottle of solution and next to it there is a jar filled with 36 pads. What you do is fill the jar up with the solutions so the pads are submerged with the solution. Than you apply to your face. After several days of using this product i was amazed on how good and how my skin looks now. I can see a difference from day one until now. I can tell that my face seems more even now and my dry spots have completely disappeared. Which was a major plus for me.

I would highly recommend this product. I was not sure at first if I would like this product to be honest. Although I entered with a clear set of mind and I actually have fell in love with it. I would highly recommend this product for getting you ready for Valentines Day or Easter. You can find more information on this product at http://www.neostrata.com/product/exuviance+daily+antioxidant+peel+ca10.do

Exederm Ultra Sensitive Skin Care Review

 My children and I both suffer from eczema. I always try to find product that will help my eczema and will not irate our skin. I found a line of products that I am pretty impressed with. That line of products are called Exederm. Exederm is a line of skin care products for children that suffer from eczema, dermatitis and dry sensitive skin. Their main goal is to avoid irritants that trigger eczema and use the mildest ingredients possible. The National Eczema Association has honored Exederm children's skin care. All five product of their products scored the maximum score out of the review panel. 
 
Well having two children that suffer from Eczema I knew that I had to try their products. My daughter suffers more from Eczema than my son. Sometimes it can get really bad. I was very excited when I was able to try two out of their five products. The first product that I reviewed was their non irritating baby lotion. Since it has been winter time my daughters eczema has been a issue the past few weeks. Well when I received the lotion I tried it on my daughter to see how it worked. It seemed to help clear her skin up. I noticed a difference within a day. It seems like her skin was hydrated and it started looking healthy. It actually soothed her and did not irrate and help her from irritation. I would highly recommend this lotion for anyone who suffers or has children who suffer from eczema. 

The second product that I reviewed was non irritating baby shampoo. I also have a issue with my daughter when I shampoo her hair it is a constant battle. I have to find the right shampoo because majority of the shampoo's that I use are very hard on her skin or scalp. When I used Exederm non-irritating baby shampoo I was highly impressed on how it did not irritate her at all. Also I had the joys of not fighting with my daughter which was nice. I could just wash her hair trying to fight free and let me tell you that is a challenge. No crying no pain. I would highly recommend this shampoo if you have similar problems that I have with my daughter.

I would highly recommend this line of products if you have a child that suffers from eczema or other skin irritation. I wish I knew about this product sooner because this would have helped me out like you would not believe. You can find their products at http://www.exederm.com/

Butt Bench Giveaway and Review

When you have two kids sometimes you need to be creative. When I was my two and four year old up. I wish they could sit on something so I have a better reach to make sure they can get clean. Also if you are a women you know how sometimes it is hard balancing in the shower and trying to shave. Well I found the perfect product to help my needs out and that is a Butt Bench. 

I was able to receive the Butt Bench for a review. When I received the Butt Bench I was very excited to try this product out. When I took out the Butt Bench it was a nice natural pine. Very smooth and I was very please as the quality of the product. I cleaned my shower so I was able to instal the Butt Bench. Sometimes when it comes to these projects I fear that it will take me all day to install. When I went to install this product it literally took me less that 10 minutes which I was impressed. How you install is you clean the area that you would like to put it. Wet the suction cups and push it against the wall. When I saw suction cups sometimes I get nervous because I wonder how well they hold up. When I was messing around with it they where very strong and there is nothing to be worried about. What is nice is that you can sit down on the butt bench and shave your legs and make sure that you have not missed a spot which is nice. My son like to sit on the butt bench when he is washing up he said it is a lot easier. I also like putting my daughter on there and wash her up so she does not slip away from me. I highly recommend the Butt Bench. How I see it is I do not know what I would do without mine. 

Butt Bench's start at $29.99 which is a great deal. You can visit their store in Cedar, White or Pink.  You can also order other safety equipment for your shower at excellent prices.

Pretzel Crisps® Review

I know that super bowl is coming up and I always try to find the best snack to have. Well this year I will have something new at my super bowl party and that is Pretzel Crisps®. I have never heard of this snack before but I guess they have around since 2006. Pretzel Crisps® are a thin crunchy pretzel cracker. 

I was able to review their Deli Style Pretzel Crisps®. When I received the package I was quite surprised to see what was inside. I was not expecting what I saw. I received 7 packages of Pretzel Crisps® to try and they where Original, Garlic Parmesan, Buffalo Wing, Everything, Sesame, Jalapeno Jack and Chipotle Chedder. These make great snacks for super bowl and they have a great variety of flavors, something for everyone. These are great for dipping which we all know that I will have a million dips at my super bowl party. They would also be great for snacking on them by their selves also!. 

The first bag that I tried was the original. I really like this one a lot because you can dress this pretzel up great. I always try to find the right cracker or pretzel for my cheese ball that I fell in love with. When I tried the original of Pretzle Crisp® let me tell you that it was just amazing. I am happy that I have found this for my cheese ball. 



The second flavor that I tried was the Garlic Parmesan this also one of my favorites. I was sort of surprised because I did not think I would like this kind. This is also good with Cheddar cheese or hummus. My daughter like this kind to dip in her hummus. This would also be another brand that I would also find in my shopping cart.



Buffalo Wing was my dads favorite. I let him have this bag because he is always craving Buffalo Wings. How I would say that he liked this kind? The bag was gone in a day so if that tells you anything. He said he had never had anything that tasted like this before and he would buy them again. So this would be a great snack for people who love Buffalo Wing flavor. 





The next flavor is Everything. This flavor has sprinkled poppy seeds, sesame seeds, onions and garlic and a little bit of salt. I was not sure if I would like it due to there is everything on it. Surprisingly I really enjoyed the flavor and all the flavors that where mixed together complemented each other to make it a great tasting. This is another great pretzel that goes with just about any spread.



Sesame flavor- I am not quite sure if I like this flavor or not. I am not saying that it is bad but I  like a few other flavors more. Although the plus of this one is that it is high rich in iron. Iron is important to me due to my daughter illness so I promote this one for my daughter!




I do not like Jalapeno so I decided this one would be great for my dad to try also. He enjoyed this one also with Salsa. He said it would be great plain or with Salsa. He also said that this was his second favorite out of all of them. He said when he ran out of this kind he wish he had more.





I usually do not like Chipotle Chedder although I was surprised that I really enjoyed this flavor. I could not eat a lot of them at once though. I had to eat them in moderation due to the flavor would get to me after awhile. This is good plain in my opinion. I would highly recommend this flavor.







I would highly recommend Pretzel Crisps® for snacking or super bowl party. I know that I will be getting more for my party because these are just highly amazing. Plus the variety which I also like. They have something for just about everyone. You can find their products at http://pretzelcrisps.com/2091/

Jack & Lily Review/Giveaway

When it comes to shoes to my 2 year old toddler it is hard to find shoes that she likes and will actually wear. I have been disappointed lately with the shoes that I have found for my daughter in quality and they do not hold up great. I am happy to share with you i found a great place to find a great stylish, comfortable and durable shoe. That place is called Jack & Lily's shoes and I was able to review a pair of their shoes for my daughter.

I had a very hard time choosing a pair because all of their shoes where very cute and I wish I could choose them all. I ended up choosing a brown pair of shoes that had a pink lace around the edge with an owl on front. When I received this pair of shoes in the mail the came in a cute box to keep them protected. When I took them out my daughter gravitated towards them. She kept telling me she wanted to wear her shoes. Not often will she want to wear shoes and would go barefoot if she could. I can not say if they are comfortable or not, but I would say they are because she will not take them off and she would try keep them on when she fell asleep. I will agree with there site that these shoes are the best quality of baby footwear. They come in only baby and toddler sizes. My daughter is almost out grown these shoes but will last awhile. I wish I knew about these shoes before she grew out of them or I would definitely have more pairs!! I would highly recommend these for your baby/toddles. I would highly recommend these as baby shower gift. You can find yourself a pair at https://www.jackandlily.com/

They have agreed to give one pair of choice to a lucky reader. This is open to USA and Canada. Jack and Lily will be responsible for the prize and shipping. Enter below.

ComfySlumber Premuim Organic Hemp Baby Blanket

 
I really like the concept behind The Willow Store. They have been committed from the start of their business to start help make the earth a happy and healthier environment for everyone. They carry a variety of items such as Reusable diapers, training pants, feminine items, baby blankets, bedding items. I was impressed by their wide variety of products.
Cs_premium_hemp_baby_blanket 
I had the chance to be able to review one of their Comfy Slumber Premium Organic Hemp Baby Blankets. When I first received this blanket I noticed how soft and heavy the blanket was. I really liked that because a lot of baby blankets are very thin and not very soft which is a major down fall. Their baby blankets retails for 19.95 at the Willow Store. Which my daughter absolutely loves this blanket. I try to find her items that will help her keep healthy and not get sick. The ComfySlumber Premium Organic Hemp Baby Blanket is made of natural, ultra-soft organic cotton/hemp fibers that breath. What I found interesting that this prevents the baby from sweating and night which is nice. What my favorite thing about the ComfySlumber Premium Organic Hemp Baby Blanket is that hemp is antibacterial which really helps me out for my daughter. Also there are no chemicals, dioxins or fragrance to harm a baby. This blanket measures 27 inches by 30 inches after washing. I would highly recommend this blanket if your expecting a child or have a newborn. This would be perfect for swaddling your baby. If you are also doing tummy time this would be a perfect blanket for that. You can find their other products at their storehttp://www.willowpads.com/products/comfyslumber-premium-hemp-baby-blanket
 

Starlook Starbox Review

I have heard so many wonderful things about Starlook Starbox. Starbox is another makeup subscription box. This subscription is $15.00 a month. I was able to review one month of Starlook Starbox and I was very excited to see what the rave was about there box. It arrived yesterday and I was going to wait until today to open it, but that did not happen I had to peek yesterday. I was very impressed by all the full products that where in this box. Now I am starting to see what the rave is all about and will have to agree.

In my Starbox this month I have received Fancy Diamondline Eye Liner, Brown Eye Liner, Cuty Peach Blush Compact, 858 Dome Brush and a green bracelet. In the box it had a card with the descriptions and the retail value of the products that where inside. My box retail value is $63 dollars although when I added it up it came up to $58. 

Well the first item that is in my box was the "Fancy" Diamondline Eye Liner- When I first read the description of this color my opinion before trying this was not a color for me. When I tried this color it was a nice shiny green with a sparkle to it. This could be used and a liner or a base shadow. This is actually one of my new favorite liners. I love the color and this was a nice surprise. (starlooks retail price $8)

The second item that was in my box was "Brown" Eye Liner. This is a nice chocolate brown eye liner. I really enjoyed this eye liner I tend to wear a lot of brown eye liner. I did notice that this was better quality. It did not smudge and that was a problem that I was having. You can combine your line with the other "Fancy" in this box and you create a nice olive tone. (starlooks retail $8)

The third item that was in my box was the "Cuty Peach" Blush Compact. This was a full size compact blush. This is a pure peach toned blush is super color saturated. I really have fallen in love with this blush. I have a hard time finding the right kind of blush and this one has topped them all. What I also like a little goes a long way so it will last me for awhile. This is a great peachy color for spring coming up. (starlook retail value $12)

The fourth item that was in my box was 858 Dome Brush. When I look at makeup brushes is will the bristles fall out easy and will they irritate my skin. Sometimes the bristles tend to be rough and that will automatically irritate my skin. This brush is a high quality brush no bristle have fallen out of the brush so far and the brush is very soft which is a major plus to me. I would highly recommend this brush. (starlook retail value $15)

The last product that was in my box was a surprise it was a nice beaded bracelet. This bracelet by Abby Rose Designs was handmade. I really liked the color of the bracelet. At times I find my self not wearing bracelets because they make my skin itchy and sweaty. What I like about this where it a self fit. What I mean about self it is that you wrap around your wrist and your good to go. There is no connecting the ends. I like how there is a base where is a big green bead and then there little beads intertwining. You can find their jewelry at www.etsy.com/shop/abbyrosedesign you can also use STARLOOKS at checkout and get free shipping on any order. (starlooks retail $15)

I was highly impressed with my first Starlooks Starbox. I would highly recommend them. For 15 dollars a month how can you go wrong. So far this may be one of my favorite subscription box. All the products in this box I really enjoyed and would actually use. You can get your subscription box at http://starlooks.com/

Candy Japan

I am a big fan of candy, although I wonder what candy from other countries taste like. I had the opportunity to review Candy from Japan. I have never been to Japan but often wondered what their food/candy and ect would taste like. Candy Japan offers a candy box subscription twice a month for 23.95. I received two packets of candies one was DARS and the other Pocky Panda.

The first candy that I have tried was the Pocky Panda. Let me tell you I have never tried anything like this before. It was a long skinny stick cover with white chocolate. I can not quite figure out what the base of the stick is. Kind of like a cookie. Which it taste amazing. There are quite a few that comes in this package. I keep finding myself wanting more and grabbing more out of the package and now it is almost gone. 

The second candy that I was able to try was the DARS. I had a strong feeling that I would be a fan of this candy due to the fact I love white chocolate. When I tried DARS it literally melted in my mouth and I instantly wanted more. This was a lovely treat. What I also like about this candy that it came in a pack but it was already seperated so you did not have to break it up. It was already to go. If you are a white chocolate fan I would highly recommend this product 100 percent. 


It is nice to have a chance to try candy from another country. It nice to have that change and not the normal grocery store candy. When I tried both candies I was very pleased and enjoyed them very much. I would highly recommend their candy and their subscription box with the candy that I was able to sample. You can find more information at http://www.candyjapan.com/

Winning Moves Games

The one thing I like to do in my spare time is putting puzzles together. My son has started becoming interested in puzzles also. It is a fun putting together a puzzle with my son and see the excitement on his face when we find pieces that go together. Well Winning Moves Games have a great selection of puzzles and games. Their puzzles rang in sizes from 300, 500, 1000 pieces. I was able to review one of their puzzles. I let my son choose the one he wanted and he chose Sidekicks. He loves dogs so he wanted this one. 

When we received this puzzle at first I thought it was just an ordinary puzzle. Boy was I wrong. This was not an ordinary puzzle. It had 50 whimsical pieces which ranged from a lion to many different items. They where not the normal pieces and different shapes. That was very interesting to me and made it more fun. My son absolute loved looking at the whimsical pieces. Then I thought well with these special pieces would the quality be an issue? No it is not. The quality was great and the pieces went together great with out any problems. I found that it took a little more time because of the special pieces but I did not get frustrated. I thought it was a great bonding time with my son and had a great time. I would highly recommend these puzzles because it something new and fun. I love how they have the whimsical pieces and it not the usual puzzle. I would highly recommend this as a gift.

Mia Mariu Review and Giveaway


 I have seen and heard different review on Mia Mariu and I had to look more into their products. When I had a chance to be able to review two of their products I was very excited. I have started to be very fond of mineral make up and like how it looks on.
 
 The first product that I was able to try was their loose mineral shadow liner Mora. I would say that the color looks great in the jar but it does look different on. Although it is a little lighter it is a beautiful color and one of my favorite. It applies very easily and blends nicely. Once you put the color on it is a little lighter purple with a great shimmer to it. I noticed though when you first put it on you see the shimmer more and it tends to fade after a little bit. I would highly recommend this eye liner or shadow on a day out. It would be perfect look for working or going out.

The next product that I was able to review was the Mia Mariu Mineral Loose Powder Foundation. I am very found of their Mineral Foundation. I received Marfil color. I was not sure at first that this would go with my skin color, but I was amazed on how well it matched and looked. I used one of my special brushes to apply the foundation. I will say a little bit goes a long way. I was very impressed on how well it went on and how well it blended. There was no streaks or blemishes from the powder. I also noticed how comfortable it felt after applying the foundation. I also did not see any imperfections from his product. This is another keeper.  

I was very impressed with both products that I was able to review. These will last a long time and great quality. If you have not tried Mia Mariu products I would highly recommend you trying them out. You can visit them at
