Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Perfect Machine Review

 If you are an expectant mom or have a baby at home already. I have the perfect product for you to have at home. Tommee Tippee has recently came out with a new product called Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Perfect Prep Machine. As a mother I know how important it is when you are feeding your child. I did not realize when I became a mom on how important and how many factors come into play during a babies feeding time. I know a lot of moms out there breastfeed out there and that is the best way to go. Although if you were me I was not able to breastfeed after I had my children due to complications. I had to bottle feed with formula. My experience with bottle feeding can be frustrating at night. When your child wakes up they want to eat NOW no if and or buts. Also it seems to take forever to get that right premature for that bottle. 

Well Tommee Tippiee's new product will make parents life much easier with their new Perfect Prep Machine. This machine will help parents at night with preparing the bottle. This machine will make a fresh bottle at just the right serving temperature in less than two minutes. Can you believe that? This machine is very easy to use, it quick and accurate. This product provides the right amount of measurements for the bottle and the right amount of water. It will heat the bottle to the correct temperature to 98.6 within two minutes. I was excited when I opened this box when I received it. I received two Tommee Tippee bottles and the machine. When I took the machine out it look very easy to use. The instructions were simple and easy to read. What I like about this product is that you can use just about any size bottle you would like with this machine. You can lover the top to where ever you need to put the machine. If you were wondering you can use any bottle it does not have to be Tommee Tippee Bottles. 

When I tried this machine I fell in love with it and wish I had this when my daughter was a baby. This well help those sleepless nights. What you do is put the water right into the tank of the machine. After that the water will run through the built in filter this machine has. Then the filter will take anything that is not supposed to be there out of the water. Than after that you will use the dial to pick out which bottle you are using for your baby. The bottle sizes range from 4 oz to 11 oz. Afret this step you are ready to hit start on the machine. This will make the water warm enough to kill the bacteria they may enter the bottle. After adding the formula to the bottle and shaking it to dissolve the formula put it back on the machine.  Than the rest of the water will be added at body temperature. 

I really like this product and would highly recommend it new mothers or mothers who have a child that is still taking a bottle. You can find this product at Babies 'R Us or Amazon.

Enjoying Tea Review and Giveaway

Black Plum Blossom Cast Iron SetIn our house we love drinking hot tea. I especially love hot tea on a cold winter day or when I have a cold. I came across this wonderful site called Enjoying Tea and they have a wide of variety of products. The one thing that I was missing with my tea at home was a Tea Set and that when I started to look and fell in love with product at Enjoying Tea. I was given the opportunity to review a Tea Set from them and a sampler of their teas. I was very excited.

When I went to go pick out a Tea Set there where a great of variety of tea sets to choose from. The broke them up in categories such as Cast Iron Tea Sets, Chinese Tea Sets, English Tea Sets, Glass Tea Sets, Japanese Tea Sets, Porcelain Tea Sets, Stone Tea Sets and Yixing Clay Tea Sets. 



I was able to try the Plum Blossom cast iron tea set and the green tea sampler. When I received the tea set I was excited to see exactly what it would like. When I took out the tea set I was surprised on how heavy it was. This tea set is high quality cast iron tea set. This tea set is cherry plum designed. This symbolizes the beauty in Japanese culture. This tea set is made from sturdy iron and also has enamel coating on the inside. This prevents the cast iron from rusting. I wondered how they pulled that off. The great part of the tea pot is that it heat evenly and it help keep the heat inside. This tea set include 1 teapot, 2 teacups, 1 removable stainless tea filter, and 1 trivet.

I also received the green tea sampler. What I love about their samplers is that they have a variety and you can try something that you maybe not normally be able to try.

Sully and Mike Build-A-Bear Workshop Review



Have you seen what recently made it way to Build-A-Bear Workshop? Sully and Mike from Monster Ink!! Who does not love these to characters? Well to celebrate their new movie coming out Monster University. Build-A-Bear Workshop partnered up with Disney to bring you your favorite characters. When my son saw that Build-A-Bear was gong to carry Sully and Mike he was super excited. He can not wait to see their new movie coming out. The first movie my son and I used to watch together almost every day. Sully is his favorite character from the movie.

When I was able to review both of these furry friends from Build-A-Bear Workshop my son was ecstatic. We were not expecting to receive these to in the mail so when my son opened the box he was jumping up and down. He first took out Sully from the Build-A-Bear box. Sully is a 17 inch furry friend. When I was able to get a minute to look over Sully because my son would not let him out of his site. I noticed that he was very soft and very detailed. Looked just like sully. I love his smile it is a little goofy but my son and I fell in love with it. What I really like about sully is his claws that are on his feet and hands I thought the detail there was very cute. You can choose if you would like Sully with or without his Monster University jacket or not. I really like Sully jacket it reminds me of a varsity jacket. It looks like it has pockets and it even has the M on the front. I think they did a great job when they made the university jacket. We were surprised that mike was also in the box. My daughter seemed to like him better. She kept poking Mike's eye. Asking me one eye? Which was very cute. Mike is a mini mike and not a normal size furry friend. Mike is a 11 inch furry friend. He is a nice soft furry friend. He has a cute hat that monster university on his head. I love the size of mike. He is also cute and just the right size. I love the eye and the cute smile that mike has. Both of these furry friends would make perfect pal for your child. If your child love sully and mikey they would love these to furry friends. You can find these new to pals on their website or you can go to your local Build-A-Bear Workshop now.

My Littlest Pet Shop Sweetest Pets Review



littlestpetshopondvdI have a daughter and a son who absolutely love Littlest Pet Shop show. I remember when I was a little girl I would actually play with the little figurines. This is a great animation series with a lot of cute pets.

eBeanstalk.com Review







I have recently been introduced to a new toy website called ebeanstalk.com. When I first started looking ebeanstalk.com I was pretty impressed with the variety of different toys that they offered. If you are looking for a present for your kids or a present for a niece and nephew you can find it here. ebeanstalk.com has a variety of different popular brand that you can find for you kids like Mattel, Melissa and Doug, Alex toys and so much more. What I like about this website is that I can find just about any toy for any age group. I like how their website is set up. On the left of their webpage they have a list of different age groups that you can click on and see what is age or gender appropriate. They have a section for Top Selling toys for 1 year olds: http://www.ebeanstalk.com/Top-Selling-Toys-For-1-Year-Olds , Toys for 1 year old girls: http://www.ebeanstalk.com/Toys-For-1-Year-Old-Girls  and Toys for 1 year old boys: http://www.ebeanstalk.com/Toys-For-1-Year-Old-Boys 

I like how they offer different categories because you would be searching for a long time. That is one of my pet peeves is when a company offers a lot of different products and their website is not organized. I do not like spending a lot of time looking at random products. When  found this site I was amazed by the organzation and the categories where you can find specifically what you are looking for. Since I have a two and five year old I can go their sections and find something for them. When I looked at the different categories I was impress with the accurate placement with the age appropriate toys. 

When I was looking through the toys for one year old girls I found really cute gift ideas. When I saw this Emily Doll  fell in love with it and would be a perfect gift for a one year old girl. 
Ravensburger Mix n Fix Mike 
When my son was one he would love playing with different kind of cars and trucks. When I found this toy from WOW I thought it would of been a perfect toy for him at that age. 
Alex Maxville Cube

I love the categories for each age group that is top toys for that age group. This would be great for adults that may not have children and get invited to a birthday party and not sure what to get that child. This will help adults find the top rated toys and age appropriate toys for that child. 


 I was very excited to be able to share ebeanstalk.com with you. I know I will be using this site more often now. When I shop I do not like going to numerous of website or stores. I can stop over at ebeanstalk and find exactly what i am looking for. What are you waiting for and take a few minutes and check out ebeanstalk.com.

Build-A-Bear Workshop Summer Adventure Review

17 in. Pizazzy BearThis summer are you planning on a family vacation or traveling over the summer? Sometimes when you are away from home your child is not around their friends. The new Color Popz collection will give your child a new companion on your trip this summer. They can share their adventure with a new Furry Friend from Build-A-Bear Workshop. Make sure you stop into Build-A-Bear Workshop on the way and pick up one of their New Color Popz furry friend. These adorable bright colored furry friends will make the perfect best friend for your child during the summer.

I was able to review this Color Popz collection which included Jazzy the Frog, Razzy the Cat and Pizazzy the bear. Razzy and Jazzy are both 18 inches and Pizazzy is 17 inches. When I received them in the mail I was surprised on how big they where. I first thought that they were going to be regular sized like the other Build-A-Bears. Sure enough my children wanted to see what was in the box and when I opened the box they were super excited. My daughter wanted to claim all three furry friends. Although my son had another idea. My son really took to Jazzy the frog. Throughout the day my children would not let go of their new friends. My daughter took a liking to Razzy the cat. Throughout the day she took Razzy on her two year old adventures which was very interesting. When she had to eat dinner and when she was done she announced that Razzy was hungry and needed to eat. My children fell in love with their new furry friends.

To be honest I am not a huge fan of bright colors, so I was not sure if I would like these new furry friends that they came out with for the summer. When they arrived in mail you could not help but falling in love. They were bigger animals soft and they seemed to come to life for my children. My daughter who is two fell in love with the bright colors and absolutely had to take them everywhere. Even to bed and had to tuck each one in. My so did not go that far but cuddled with Jazzy at night. Jazzy, Pizazzy, and Razzy are perfect for the Summer season and your child's summer adventures. They also came with sunglasses which were very cute and added that summer touch to them. It was neat out the glasses connected to each animal. On the furry friend there is a little hoop it like a ribbon and you can slip the end of the sun glasses through. There is a groove on the sunglasses where it fits so it keeps connected. They where very easy to take off. Although putting them on is a little more difficult for children but for adults it is pretty easy.  Overall I love the affect the sunglasses has on the furry friends.

If you go to Build-A-Bear Workshop and you make a purchase over 30 dollars you will receive a new beach towel from Build-A-Bear Workshop. It is a great towel with a furry friend on top. Great new accessory to have when you are going on trip. You can find all three new furry friends at their website or at your local Build-A-Bear Workshop.

Kinderfeets Balance Bike Review


Kinderfeets Balance Bike
Do you have a child that is not quite ready for a regular bike without training wheels? Or you want to teach your two year balance? I have found a new creation that I am excited to share with you guys. You may of heard of Kinderfeets before. Kinderfeets is a patented balance bike. This bike is to help your toddler or young child balance on their bike. This would be a great starting point for children preparing to ride a conventional two wheeled bicycle. I think this bike is very creative alternative to training wheels. Kindfeets were designed by a dutch designer that is living in California. He created this bike for his son because the one that he wanted was not available.

I was able to review one of their yellow Kinderfeets. When we first received this bike in the mail I was surprised on how lightweight the box was. My children were super excited when they saw the logo on the box and wanted me to open it ASAP. When I opened the box it came a nice box with a handle. Great box to store it in the future. When I took the parts out I was not sure if it would be easy to put together. I am not one of those handy moms. I was surprised on how easy it was to put together. It took me about 30 minutes all together with two excited kids. At first I was afraid for my daughter to try this bike as any mom I did not want her to fall. When she got on this bike she would not get off. She was riding around the whole house saying beep beep. She did not fall at all and she aboustly loved it. I can not pry this bike away from her. Although their were a few sibling fights on who wanted the bike and who the bike belonged to. Overall this bike is great quality and safe for children 2-4. This great for young children like my daughter to learn balance. I would highly recommend this bike for your young children or the summer!! You can find their Kinderfeets Balance Bikes at their website.

ABCmouse.com Review and Giveaway

ABC Mouse Review/Giveaway

I have a five year old who is entering in Kindergarten this fall. He is a little bit behind but not that far behind. We needed to find a program that could help him during the summer to brush up alphabet and numbers before he enter kindergarten. We came across a wonderful site for youngsters called ABCmouse.com. I was eager to try ABCmouse.com and see if it was really worth the cost. I am one of those moms who is always debating whether to spend money on something or not. I hate wasting money. 

I was excited when I was able to review their site and share my experience with my readers. I was offer a code for a one year subscription to their site which is a value of 80 dollars. I was excited to try this site out and see if it was worth it. When I first went to ABCmouse.com I had to create and account and it was fairly easy to set up. Which was the first plus for me. I also like how you create your account if you have multiple children you can make separate accounts for each child. When you think about it if you have several children using this program it is worth the price of 80 dollars a year.

Well when I told my son we were able to try ABCmouse.com he rushed to the computer and sat on my lap and our journey has started. My son wanted me to help him at first and it was fun. Although shortly after I was not allowed to help him. ABC mouse was easy for my son to navigate around their site. He knew what to do for the majority of time a few time he asked a couple questions. 

What I really like about ABC mouse is that it is learning, but made fun for your child. Their are a lot of different activities for your child to partake on their site. Their is a classroom where you can go to and feed the class pet which are fish. Than you can go to lesson path. Each path has about 7 activities that make a lesson. Activities include music, coloring, stories, games, and so much more. What my son loves about completing the activities is that he received tickets afterwards. When you earn tickets you can go to their mall and trade them in for items to decorate your room on their site or my son bought hamsters that he would take care of on abc mouse. 

After a week I have seen improvements with my son. He started to recognize more letters from the alphabet. I am really excited to continue this journey with my son. I would highly recommend ABC mouse and I also would recommend if you have a child entering kindergarten this year I would invest in ABC mouse. What I also love is that is affordable and it does not matter if you have several children. You only have to pay once. Also if you do not want to purchase a whole year you can do monthly payments also. That is $7 dollars a month. That is honestly a great bargain and they have endless materials for children on their site. You can purchase directly from their site!! Or you can enter below to with a whole year membership!!

Enter Below for a full 80 dollar value year subscription. Good Luck!!

Yves Rocher has recently have come out with a great line of products for men just in time for fathers day. Their new collection are Ambre Noir and Men Fresh. I was very excited that I was able to give my father a great fathers day gift basket with special goodies for just him. This would make great gift for your husband, boyfriend, father, or grandfather.
Ambre Noir - Hair & Body Shampoo 
The first product that I put in the gift basket for my father was the Ambre Noir Hair & Body Shampoo. My dad usually does not like changes with body wash or shampoo, but I convinced him to get this a try. After he tried this product he was surprised on how much he liked this product. He said he really loved them scent of the body wash. The scent is a wood and sensuality of amber scent. My father is a huge fan of woodsy and outdoors scents. My dad said he would recommend this product. This product come in a 6.7 fl oz bottle. Just the perfect size to put in a gift basket.

Ambre Noir - Eau de Toilette 100 mlMy father always has his favorite cologne on the top shelf. My dad is very picky on what colognes that he will actually where. He uses cologne a lot when he is working. He is in sales so he is always trying to look his best. What man wouldn't like cologne for fathers day. You can not go wrong with this choice. Amber Noir Eau de Toilette. This comes in a 50 ml or 100 ml. I like how there are two choices you could choose from. I received the 100 ml bottle. This scent is very similar to the body wash. So no surprise that my father put this product up on the top shelve and uses it for work. Ambre Noir scent is a woody scent. Perfect for that special man in your life. When I had the chance to smell this fragrance I really like the woody smell to it. This would be a perfect cologne for men.

Yves Rocher has also came out with a great line of men fresh products for men. Perfect for fathers day. 
Shaving Gel Smooth Gliding 
The first product that we received from the Men Fresh Collection was the Shaving Gel Smooth Gliding. This come in a 5 fl oz bottle. When I tried this product it has a great smell to it which was Aloe Vera. When I tried this product it did make shaving nicer and left my skin moisturized after this product. My dad has also tried this shaving and he said that he enjoyed it and would use this product again. This product is man approved. 

After Shave Balm Cooling EffectThe next product that we received was the Yves Rocher was the After Shave Balm. This product comes in a 3.3 fl oz bottle. When I opened to smell this product it has a nice clean calming smell of aloe vera to it. After shaving I had a razor burn so I decided to try this product. It help sooth the pain right away and moisturized my skin. I was pretty impressed and happy that I could get a little relief. This product rubbed in instantly and left a nice cool soothing effect after applying. This product is a great after shaving balm for men and even women.
Exfoliating Face WashThis product is my dad's favorite one of them all. This is Yves Rocher Exfoliating Face Wash and this come in a 3.3 fl oz. I heard my dad raving on how much he liked this product and I knew I had to try it. I loved the smell of fresh aloe vera. When I put a small amount on my hand i saw that it blue and looked like it had crystals in it. When I was washing my face with this product the crystals were exfoliating my skin. When I rinsed the product off my skin it fell smooth and feeling great. I felt like a layer of dead skin came right off and my skin was look great and fresh. This product is truly amazing and a must have. 
Anti-Dryness Face Care 24 Hr Moisturizing
The last product that we received was the anti dryness face care. This product comes in a 1.6 fl oz. This is a white cream that has a nice fresh smell to it. This cream is to help keep your skin moisturized for 24 hours. When I applied a small amount on my face it rubbed in smoothly and absorb quickly. It did not leave a greasy feeling afterwards. It left my skin feeling smooth afterwards and throughout the day.

I would highly recommend Yves Rocher Ambre Noir and Men Fresh for fathers day this year. I know that I surprised my father with a fathers day gift basket with special goodies. You can visit Yves Rocher website here and find these specific goodies for your loved ones.
