Aqua Dragons Review


Recently my kids were sent some Aqua Dragons for review. My son was very excited for this review. Aqua Dragons are recommended for children 6 and up.
 
When we received Aqua Dragons it was very simple to get started. First you fill up the tank wit bottled water. After filling up the tank we let it sit overnight so it could reach room temperature before we put the eggs in the tank. Than the fun part begins. My son put the eggs in the tank. Than wait a couple of days and keep checking to see if any of your eggs have hatched. 
 
I kept the tank in a warm place in my house. The eggs are very small, so be warned when they hatched they are very tiny. They should hatch within two days from putting the eggs in the tank. After they hatch do not be alarmed if they do not hatch all at the same time. Just keep what your doing. They do like a warm spot. Then you will have to feed your dragon every 4-5 days. You will also have to oxygenate the water using the little pipet that is provided in your kit. 
 
My son thought this was the most amazing thing he has ever seen. He was very excited and now is bragging to everyone he has new pets. It is very simple for your children and they will fall in love with it. 
 
You can find Aqua Dragons are available to buy from Amazon

Breastfeeding Essentials (Tommee Tippee) Review and giveaway

image I am not sure if you guys were aware that August is the National Breastfeeding Awareness Month? If you are currently breastfeeding or your thinking about breastfeeding in the next couple months. Tommee Tippee has all of the perfect essentials you can imagine when it come to breastfeeding. Tommee Tippee has sent us a package of all their Breast Feeding Essentials. 

The first product is their Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Single Manual Breast Pump. The Closer to Nature Manual Breast Pump comes in 3 pieces. Which makes things easy to assemble and easy to take apart and clean. I like that there is only 3 pieces so you can sanitize it and make sure it clean instead of having numerous of pieces. This breast pump features a soft touch silicone cup with a special massage ripples that encourage fast, comfortable milk let down. I like how this is manual operation. You can use this product anywhere because it quiet, discreet, very simple to use and you can bring it anywhere you go.

image The next product is Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Disposable Breast Pads. I really like Tommee Tippee disposable breast pads. They are very soft and comfortable which is very important. Also they absorb really well and they do not leak through which is nice. Each pack of breast pads come with two inside. I love how each pack come with two breast pads and they are easy to store in your purse without anyone really knowing what they are. I would highly recommend Tommee Tippee breast pads. 

imageTommee Tippee Closer to Nature Nipple Shields. Tommee Tippiee nipple shield follow the natural flex, feel and movement. Which makes the transaction for babies easily. I like how they put a lot of time and effort to make transaction as smooth as possible. This also helps mothers out a lot if they are getting sore from breastfeeding. Which that can happen and it is nice to have a back up plan. I know as a new mom you may find breastfeeding difficult at times or stressful and this option can help prevent you feeling stressed. 

imageTommee Tippee Closer to Nature 5 oz added Comfort Bottles. This bottle is perfect if your baby is suffering from colic. I was lucky and never had a colic baby, but I know other mothers are not as lucky as I was. Colic can be caused by a combination of things like ingesting air during feeding. This new bottle is designed to help reduce air bubbles in the milk and encourage a good latch on to help reduce the risk of baby ingesting air during feeding. If your baby is suffering from colic I would invest in one of these bottles and see if it helps.

You can find these products on their website here. If you have a friend who is going to be a new mom I would highly recommend surprising her with Tommee Tippee essentials!!

My Little Pony Equestria Girls Dvd Review

MLPEquestrinagirls 

I am very excited to share with you that My Little Pony characters are growing up. In this dvd they are magically transformed into teenage girls so they could leave their magical kingdom and experience high school. 

I think that this is a very neat idea that they are letting the My Little Ponies experience high school. I believe that this would be great for girls who are in middle school. This kind of gives them a little idea of what high school is about.

In this move Twilight Sparkle's crown is stolen from the Crystals Empire. Princess Sparkle goes after her crown and she is thrown into an alternate world where she is turned into a teenage girl. If Princess Sparkle has any hope to returning to Equestria, she has to learn how to fit in. Princess Sparkle has to learn to fit in, in this strange world and defeat Sunset Shimmer. During this competition she does have help from spike and five teenage girls who remind her of her friends from back home. 

I really like the new twist that they did with My Little Ponies. It seems like some audience may not like it and some do. I like change and I think this movie may not be for younger girls like my daughter because she will not understand what is going on. I believe this would be perfect for girls five and up. It gives them something new and adventures. My son who is five seemed to be more interested in this DVD. You will be able to find this movie on September 2 at your local store or amazon.com.

Pajanimal Review

sweet peaMy children were very excited when we received a package with Pajaminals items. We received Pajaminals Sweet Pea Sue Makes a New Friend and Pajanimal Pal.

Sweet Pea Sue Makes a New Friend is a very cute story and my daughter fell in love with it. She has me read it to her every night. Sweet Pea Sue Can't sleep because she is scared after seeing a picture of an octopus. The Pajanimals set out on an adventure for Sweet Pea Sue to meet a friendly octopus. Sweet Pea Sue makes a new friend called Ellie the octopus. This is a really cute story and it has re-useable stickers inside and my daughter loves that part where she get to put stickers inside her book. 

pajaWe also were able to review a Pajanimal Pal which is perfect for a younger child although my 2 year old brings her pal everywhere with her! There are four new Pajanimal Pals available from TOMY. My daughter loves hos soft the blanket is. One side of the blanket is satin and the other side is fleece. Each blanket has a different cute pattern to it. Both are very cute and my daughter fell in love. She puts both on her nightstand at night. When it is time for bed she gets both and while I read the story to her she cuddles with her new pal. These would be perfect for any toddler. You can find both at amazon.com or walmart.com.

Monkey Balm Review and Giveaway

I love to invest in natural products when it comes for health care. Especially when it come to my 5 and 3 year old. When I came across Monkey Balm I was intrigued because this product is natural and it help relieve eczema. My family suffers from eczema. Although my daughter and I suffer from it more than my son does. I was given the opportunity to review Monkey Balm. I was excited to be given the chance to review.
 
Monkey Balm can be used in several situations. If you are outside in the sun and you or your children are suffering from sunburn this product is great to help reduce the irritation. I find my children and I use it on our irritated skin when we have dry and outburst from eczema. Let me tell you Monkey Balm help relieve and help get rid of the problem. I was quite impressed with this product. The secret to Monkey Balm is that is made with Organic Sea Buckthorn Oils. I would highly recommend this product if you have skin irritation or sunburned. This product is truly amazing. I know when my daughter has irritated itch skin sometimes she is in tears. When I use Monkey Balm on her it clears it up pretty quickly and no more uncomfort.

Shelia G's Brownie Brittle Review


Around the Holiday Season I am always trying to find those special treats to have at home or during the time when family is visiting. I know from now on I will always have Sheila G's Brownie Brittle in my home during the holiday season. Sheila G. is the creator of this fabulous treat. In 1992 Shelia G Mains took a family treasured recipe for fudge brownies and baked her way into a thriving business. After Sheila would bake her fudge brownies you would find her going through the bakery and finding the brittle bat off the side sheet pans as the brownies were cooling on their racks. She said they were the same amazing taste but they had this amazing crunch to them. Then she wanted to find out how she could make the whole pan of brownies crunchy. Of course she found a way to do that and now she is bringing us Brownie Brittle.
 
Shelia G's Brownie Brittle comes in 4 varieties: Chocolate Chip, Mint Chocolate Chip, Toffee Crunch, and Salted Carmel. I would say my two favorite ones are Chocolate Chip and Mint Chocolate chip. I could not choose between both to come up with a favorite one. I was amazed on how crunchy the brownie was and brittle and the amazing taste to it. When my kids and I picked up the Chocolate Chip bag we could not put it down within minutes the bag was completely empty. They brownie brittle pieces that come in the package are decent size. I also love how they are not messy. You would think that they would be very crumbly. I was afraid that the Mint Chocolate chip one would not have the right amount of chocolate and mint together. I was surprised with my first bite. Lets say this package dissipated and my children had no clue where it was. I am defitnely going to buy more for the holiday and definitely have them out during my holiday parties. You can find Sheila G's Brownie Brittle Here

Fiafini Review

I was recently introduced to Fiafini products and they are absolutely wonderful. Fiafini products give women everywhere access to amazing skin products. If you have any of the following like lines, wrinkle here or there, aging Fiafini natural skincare are the products for you.

Fiafini was generous to provide me two products for review.The first product that I tried was their Fiafini Divine Hydration Moisturizer. This product comes in a 1.7 fl oz. When applying to product you want to make sure you apply it after you use the cleanser. You want to apply small amount to the facial area and neck area until it is fully absorb in your skin. When I applied this product I noticed that it was a creamy semi thick moisturizer. The scent to this specific product was a fresh smelling scent that was not overpowering. When rubbing this product in my skin I noticed that it absorb pretty quickly. I really liked this moisturizer more than my other because I like how well it absorb into my skin and the feeling after applying. My skin felt soft and felt fresh. This feeling lasted for majority of the day which was really nice for a change. You can use this moisturizer morning and night. 
delicate-emulsion 
The next product that I was able to try from Fiafini was their Delicate Cleansing Emulsion. this products comes in a 4.0 fl oz bottle. When I use cleansers I get nervous at first because I am not sure if it will hurt my skin. I have very delicate skin and it does not take much for it to get irritated. The first think about this product let me tell you I had nothing to worry about. This product is super gentle on your skin and does not strip your skin which is nice. This cleanser is very lightweight which is nice. When I applied this product it quickly dissolved my make that I was wearing leaving my skin feeling rejuvenated. I love having a clean face. This product is Fragrance free which is a plus for me, alcohol free, mineral oil and all parabens free. This is a great cleanser and I would highly recommend it.

I was very impressed with fiafini products and I would defeitnely recommend them and use them in the future. Also I wanted to mention is that fiafini products are not tested on animals which is a major factor for me. You can find fiafini on their website here.

Showaflops Review (Holiday Gift Guide)

 Are you planning on going on vacation during the holiday season? Our family travels to visit family out of state. While we visit out of state we always end up stay and a hotel. The kids and I always take advantage of the pool while we are staying at the hotel.  Although I always dread walking through the showers to the pool with my bare feet. I never know what I am stepping on and it drives me nuts. 


I am glad that I was introduced recently to Showaflops! These flip flops are perfect for public showers, steam rooms and pools. If you are looking to find the perfect stocking stuffer for that someone who loves going to the gym, steam rooms, pool, college student, lockers room, pool. These flops will do the trick and will make the perfect gift this holiday season. 


The reason Showaflops are so special and unique are due to the holes cut into each flip flow that lets the water flow freely through the flip flop. This help prevent you slipping and catching and fungus or germs on the ground. Where bacteria and germs love to grow on slippery floors. 

When my children and I tried the flops on they were super comfy. When I tried a pair on they fit my foot perfect. It was not tight at all. When I started walking in these flip flops it felt like walking on air. My son loved them also. We did test the flip flops out to see if they past the test!! We decided that we were going to mop the kitchen floor and we step on the wet floor and there was no slipping what so ever. Which is great. I felt like I could walk on the entire floor without slipping with these flip flops. 

The would make a great stocking stuffer this holiday season. I would also recommend picking up a pair for your holiday travel. The would come in handy over winter break. Visit Showaflops.com to check out their entire collection of
mens, womens and kids flip flops.

Jurlique Review

I love finding new beauty products out there. I was recently introduced to a brand that I have never heard before and I absolutely fell in love with their products. I recently have found Jurllique products and they are amazing. A little information on their company is they have spent over 25 years unearthing potent organic and biodynamic ingredients and developing their unique Bio intrinsic process so they could create the purest and most powerful skin care products. They will help your skin become more healthy. I was very excited when Jurlique sent me a variety of their product to try out.

The first product that I tried out was their Rosewater Balancing Mist. It came in a pretty packaging. This products comes in a 3.3 fl oz unique shape bottle. When you use this product you want to make sure you shake well before you use this product. Carefully spritz your face with this product. Make sure your eyes are close while doing this of course. I personally love this product and it is nice to have on hand. I noticed after using this product it helped restore my skin and leaving it feel nice and refreshed. I love that feeling after using a product. I also love the scent to this spray. It has a hint of rose to it. 

The next product that I reviewed was their Calendula Cream. This product comes in three different sizes 40 ml, 125 ml and 2 ml. I received the 40 ml tube for review. When I opened this cream it did not have a strong scent to it. When I tried a little bit of this cream it was a nice rich moisturizing cream. It absorbed well after applying the cream. I tried a small amount of cream on a few irritated spots and it helped relieve the irritation. After applying the cream to the spot a few times my skin felt a lot better. I really like this product and would recommend this product to anyone who suffers skin disorders. It helped relieve my eczema irritation and my skin felt great after using this product. 

The next product that I received was their Purely Sun Defying Moisturizer with SPF 15 Sunscreen. This product comes in a 1.4 oz tube. I am usually picky when it comes to my moisturizers and it is hard for me to make that change. I decided that I would give this product a try even though I was not quite sure I would like it. The scent was not strong and I enjoyed the scent. When applying this product to my skin it felt lightweight and did not have that greasy or sticky feeling after applying this product. It absorbed in my skin pretty fast and easily. If you are planning on going out it in the sun with this product I would recommend applying it 15 minutes before you go out. I would also use this product as a base for makeup. I would definitely switch my current moisturizer with this specific product. 

When you have dry skin like me I always try to find the best night moisturizer cream that will help my skin look decent in the morning hours and not dried out mess. Jurlique also has a Purley Bright Night Moisturizer. This moisturizer helps to revive your dry and dull skin during the overnight hours. This product comes in a 1.4 oz tube. When I applied this product at night I took a small amount and warmed it up between my fingertips which is recommend doing for this product. Then I applied this product to my neck and facial area. This product is great for all skin types, so you do not have to worry. During the night times hours this product will help our skin look and feel better. It will help restore your skin to where it should be by morning. I love how easily this product is to apply on skin before going to bed and how much difference I see in my skin when I wake up. I can tell a difference if I skip a night, my skin does not look the same or feel the same. 

The next product that I was able to try was their Moisture Replenishing Mask. This product helps replenish and re-balance your skin. This product comes in a 1.6 oz tube. When I tried this product I noticed how creamy this mask was. This is a creamy clay mask treatment.  I really liked the texture and how it felt on my face. It did not feel gooey or sticky. When I used this product I applied and even amount of this product on my facial area. After applying I relaxed for about ten minutes that washed the mask off with luke warm water. You can use this product weekly. After using this moisture replenishing mask I noticed quite a difference and how my skin felt. My skin felt rejuvenated  healthy and fresh. I loved the feeling of soft skin. I would highly recommend this product. It make it up to my top shelf. 

The next product is Jurlique Daily Exfoliating Cream. I am a huge fan of exfoliating cream. This product comes in a 1.4 oz tube. One of the main reasons why I like this product is that you can use this product daily. This cream has not a strong decent scent to it. When applying this cream, I applied a decent amount to my skin. When you apply this product you want to have wet hands and form a kind of paste with this product and then apply to your face. Leave it on for a few minutes and than rinse with warm water. You can feel this product removing the dead cells and skin. This is one of the reason why I love exfoliating products is that it helps take the dead skin off and leave your skin feeling fresh and feeling brand new. I have also put this product on my top shelf also. 

I felt very spoiled when Jurlique sent me their lavender hand cream. I am absolutely obsessed with lavender products. It can be anything lavender I know I will love it. Their lavender hand cream comes in a 4.3 fl oz tube. Which I have been using a lot lately and it goes with me where every I go. When using this product I do not use a whole lot. A little bit goes a long way. Which is nice because even if I use this product a lot, I will be able to have it for quite awhile. The scent is amazing to this product if you are a lavender fan like I am you will fall in love with this lotion also. It absorbs in your skin well and does not take a long time to rub in. Also it does not feel sticky or greasy after applying the product. My skin felt great and felt soft after using this product. I definitely made room for this product in my purse so it can go everywhere with me. 

The last product that I was able to try was their clarifying day cream. This comes in a small unique 1 oz fl bottle. When I tried this cream it was more a liquid cream. Although it did not run. I also was not to fond of the scent to this one. I can not really describe the smell, just was not fond of the smell. This mositurizer can be used daily. I used about two pumps and applied to my face and neck area.. It absorb very quickly and did not leave any greasy or sticky feeling. It great using the product and helped hydrate my skin. This product was a decent product. Although it was not my favorite one.

I am very excited that I was given the chance to be able to try Julique products. I have never heard of this line of products before and I am very excited that I was given the chance to share them with you guys. I would highly recommend this line of product for your daily beauty routine. You will not be disappointed with this line of products. You can find Jurlique product here

When we sat down and watched the movie my son loved this movie. My daughter watched parts of it but lost her interest a few times. She is three year old so that is why. I loved the movie and I got caught up in the movie and had to watch the whole movie. This is a great movie and a great movie for family night. My son loves all the buddies.

      Adele Blanc-sec Review


      The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec coverI want to introduce you to a new movie that recently came out called Adele Blanc-Sec. This take place in the year 1912. This movie is about Adele Blanc-sec is a young reporter, that will go any lengths to achieve her goals. She is going after mummies and so much more. In Paris there is a 136 million year old pterodactyl egg on a shelf in the natural history museum has mysteriously hatched and the bird subjects the city to a reign of terror in the skies.  

      My thoughts about this movie that it is very different and not like any movie that I have ever seen before. I would not recommend this movie for kids. My son got bored and very confused during this movie. My father actually really like this movie and thought it was a lot of fun. Adele is very smart during this movie and not afraid for a challenge. I thought this movie was a lot like a girl version of James Bond. It was a cute funny movie more adult themed. My son did not get any of the jokes. You can find this dvd at your local store.

When I came across their Art 101 Kids Tri-fol art set I knew that my son would absolutely fall in love with this product. When we received this product my son was very excited to take it out of he package. When we opened the art kit I was very impressed with the storage of the kit. There are three sections to this kit. The first section has art supplies, the middle has pop up art isle where you can draw, third side is more art supplies. I love how you can unfold it and put it any where and your good to go.

      Sibu Beauty Sea Buckthorn Beauty (seed oil) Review

      Seed Oil

      I was introduced to Sibu Beauty recently and I wanted to share with you more about their company. Bruce McMullin was the founder of Sibu in 2003 after a series of event led him to Calcutta, India where he crossed paths with an ayurvedic specialist in Chinese plants and herbs. This expert mentioned a powerful holy fruit called Sea Buckthorn berry. Than McMullin set of on his journey to find the Sea Buckthorn Berry. He used this in all of his Sibu Products.
      Sibu Beauty has a wide variety of products. I was able to review one of their products called Sibu Beauty Sea Buckthorn  seed oil. This product come in a 30 ml glass bottle. Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil has been used for a long time helping people who suffer from rosacea, eczema, acne, dermatitis and other skin conditions. I suffer from eczema and it can bother me pretty bad at times. This product will help damaged skin to it's natural beautiful self. When I applied this product to the effected areas on my arms I noticed that it absorbed very quickly into my skin. It helped relieve the itchy feeling that I have when I break out in my eczema. My skin felt great after using this product and it helped me with my breakouts.
      I would highly recommend this product if you suffer from skin conditions. This product is also good for adults and children. You can find more information about this product and their other products here at their website. 

       I was not compensated for this product however I did receive this product to try and review all opinions are my own and my differ from your opinions. In Accordance with the FTC's 16 CFR, Part 255:”Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.

      Merlot Skincare Revew and Giveaway

      As you know for my I am always trying to find the best skin product out there. I came across a great skincare lined called Merlot Skin Care. A little bit of background on Merlot Skin Care. His friends and peers called him Mr. Grapes or Mr Merlot after his Skin care line. When he was watching 60 minutes about how drinking red wine could help prevent heart disease. He found that over 70 percent of research studies indicated that drinking 1-2 glass of red wine each day could be beneficial. This could also help prevent certain cancers and lowering cholesterol in your body. He proceeded to study red grapes and their seeds to see what the huge benefit really was. Studies have found that red grape seed antioxidants are 50 time more powerful than vitamin E and 25 times more powerful than vitamin C. In 2001 he launched his skincare line called Merlot Skin care. The main ingredients is the grape seed formula. 

      I was given the opportunity to review two items from Merlot. I loved when I opened the package up and there was a small little gift bag with two products inside. Merlot knows how to put a smile on your face. 

       The first product that I took out of my gift bag was Merlot Moisturizer. This comes in a 4 oz jar. When I first tried this product I made sure my face was washed before applying this product. When I first applied this moisturizer on I noticed that their was not a strong smell to the moisturizer which was a plus. When I applied this product it was a very light weight formula and absorb quickly in my skin. I loved how my skin felt after applying and how my skin felt light and non greasy. I only had to put a small amount on my skin. My skin felt great all day long. You can also use this product as a primer before you apply your make up. Which I personally do. This product goes a long way and I highly would recommend it.

       

      The next product that I review was their Exfoliating Scrub. This comes in a 6 oz fl tube. I was very excited to try this product because I love exfoliating scrubs. This one is one of my favorite ones that I have tried so far. I love how this does not have an intense scent to it. When I washed my face in the morning I used a little bit of their exfoliating scrub in my morning routine. After applying this product in a circular motion I rinsed it off with warm water an patted my face dry. I noticed how this product took the dead skin off my face and made it feel brand new and very soft. I would highly recommend this product in your morning or nightly routine.

      EnvyDerm Review

      I was recently introduced to EnvyDerm Cosmetics. They carry a line of products for your eyelash's and your lips. I was very intrigued when I stumbled upon EnvyDerm Lip Volumizing and conditioning Plumper. I am always trying to make my lip look healthier and not chapped. EnvyDerm gave me the oppurtunity to try one of their Lip Plumper. Their product comes in 16 different colors. They have a great selection of colors and it was hard to choose which particular color I wanted to try. I finally came to the decision that I wanted to try Rose Blue Shimmer. Before I tried this product I wanted to read a little bit about this product before I tried it out. This product will help up to 37 percent for fuller plumped lips. This will start instantly with no pain or burning or stinging involved. I was not sold yet after reading about this product.

      When I first tried this product I put it on my lips and I will admit I was a little nervous at first. I was afraid that I would feel burning sensation even though it told me I would not. It felt like I was putting on my regular gloss. What I enjoyed about this product that it was long wearing and did not have a sticky or greasy feeling. That is a major plus for me with any kind of gloss products. I will admit my lips looked great after one use of this gloss. It may be my new favorite gloss. It also had a great color tint to it. I would use it for a night out. You could replace this with your regular lipstick.

      This product come in a 0.18 fl oz and you can find their product at their website here. 






      Drench your lips in this revolutionary, irresistible, juicy gloss that range from sheer to semi sheer.
