Are you looking to protect your skin during the winter season? As majority of you already know that Winter has some of the harshest weather of all seasons. I know during the winter season I have a hard time protecting my skin. 

I came across a wonderful product that will help protect your skin during the winter season. Brush on Block is a Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen. I know what your thinking is why I need this product during the winter season? Whether you are walking your dog, driving to work or skiing you need to protect your skin. 

A fact that you may not be aware of is that snow and ice reflect UV rays and in the winter there is a thinner ozone layer, which means there are more harmful rays hitting the earths surface and your skin. With this new product Brush on Block provides Broad Spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen to help protect your skin. 

What I love this product is it not messy and it is easy to put in your purse and your ready to go. I love products that are mineral based. I was happy that I found a product that can be sunscreen based. I love how this product is easy to apply and no mess. I also like the fact when you apply it, it feel natural. This is definitely a must have product for the holidays.

This year Star Wars is very popular once again for this holiday season. One of my favorite places that I like to shop at is Hammacher Schlemmer. They have about everything you can imagine on their website. 
I was excited when I was able to review one of their toys from their website. I was able to review their Voice Activated R2-D2 robot from Star Wars. My 6 year old son was very excited when he was able to review this product. He has been over obsessed with Star Wars the past year and wants everything Star Wars for Christmas this year. The Voice Activated R2-D2 is a motorized replica of the headstrong little droid from Star Wars films. This robot will respond to voice commands, navigates rooms and hallways. My son was amazed on how this robot can do that. He was excited to see the robot follow him and roam the hallways. What is really neat about this robot is that R2 obeys more than 40 voice commands. For example you can command him to turn around and move forward. My son loves playing games with R2 and playing tag with him. R2 has a infrared sensor where he can go in a room and sear for people. My son loves going around the house and having R2 follow him which is a neat site to watch. I know you are probably wondering how this can happen but with the infrared sensor lets him do that.
This is an amazing toy for children and would make a great holiday present. Make sure you stop by Hammacher Schlemmer and pick up your holiday gifts. They offer a variety of different products.

She was very excited because one of her favorite colors is blue. Dynamo is a master of distraction and can seemingly disappear in a flash. He's is also known for his signature lighting bold in his eyes and swirly pattern on his back. 

What is really need that Dynamo can read and respond to the Magic Cards or predict the pea's location in the shell game trick. Which is fun to watch. My daughter has a great time watching them perform tricks and stunts. 

When you find your new Zhus pet you can get one of two kinds. They come in magicians and stunt pets. Magicians come with three magic cards and a magic wand. They will be able to per for the magic tricks as well as performing stunt. There are also stunt pets which Dynamo falls into that category.

1.      Avoid peak travel days –Try not to fly or drive the days immediately before and after the actual holiday.  Those are the busiest travel days. However, if you fly or take a train you might save money by traveling on the actual holiday, the roads are less congested too.
2.      Prepare your child for the trip – Holiday parties can be overwhelming with sensory overload.  Especially for young children it’s good to talk about the upcoming trip days even weeks in advance.  This will help him or her get excited about the journey.  Show photos of family members or friends your child has not met yet, this way the new face might be a little familiar on arrival.
3.       “Are we there yet?” - To help avoid that dreaded phrase an hour into your six hour trip reserve a bag just for the kids, include books, toys, diapers a change of clothes and snacks.  Pre-load a tablet or smartphone with kid friendly apps or games. If you are driving keep all necessary items such as wipes, hand sanitizer or tissues easy to reach in a second – there are times you may not want to be digging through the bottom of a bag for such items. The Safety 1st Car Door Sanitation Stationnofollow is a great solution.

Hey Arnold DVD Review (Holiday Gift Guide Review)

Disclosure: I received one or more products or monetary composition for the exchange for my honest opinion. I only recommend product that I would use personally or believe would be a good fit with my readers. All opinions are 100 percent my own and may differ from yours. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides concerning the use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.


I remember as a child one of my favorite series was Hey Arnold! I remember watching this series every Saturday morning. I remember Arnold as football kid and having a fun time watching these episodes. I am excited to announce that the Hey Arnold! The Complete Series is available August 19th, 2014 only at 
Wal-Mart.

A little bit about Hey Arnold! The Complete Series:

Your favorite football head and all his pals are here with enough fun and laughs to cover several city blocks! On August 19, 2014, Shout! Factory will release Hey Arnold! The Complete Series, a 16 DVD box set featuring all 99 big city adventures from the classic Nickelodeon animated series. 

Life in the big city is one big adventure for Arnold. Living with his grandparents, who run the Sunset Arms boarding house, Arnold shares a roof with a diverse and unusual menagerie of characters (including his pet pig!). But as any fourth grader knows, some of the most memorable people you'll ever meet are in school. With friends like Arnold's (including storyteller Gerald, class jinx Eugene, sometimes bully Harold, and the tomboy Helga, who harbors a secret crush on our hero), you can be sure that he got some funny exploits to share with fans.

I was excited to be able to share this series with my children. It is fun to watch old cartoons with your children that you watched when you were a child. My children were not sure that they would like Hey Arnold! at first. My son told me that he would not like something I used to like. When we started to watch the series my son said he did not like it at first, but I believe he all talk. He did not want to shut it off and the series kept him intrigued for quite awhile. This series has over 99 adventures so it has a lot of episodes and will keep us busy. I would highly recommend sharing this complete series with your family. I personally love Hey Arnold! and always been a huge fan. 

You can find this complete series at your local Wal-Mart on August 19th.

Are you looking for a unique gift for your children this holiday season? I found a great company that offers unique gifts that are educational for your children. Thames & Kosmos was founded in 2001 with one mission to improve informal science education by publishing high quality science and technology related educational product for children of all ages. Thames & Kosmos would like to teach children hands on. 

I was able to review their Botany: Experimental Greenhouse. This kit is recommend for children 5 and up. The kit retails for about 39.95. My son loves science and he loves hands on experiences. This project is perfect for young children who love hands on projects and loves science. This kit will help children learn about plants and seeds by conducting experiments in a specially designed botanical laboratory with green house domes. This set is very interesting it reminds me of an actual greenhouse it has thermometers and ventilations for your plants to grow. You can even construct an automatic watering system to keep your plants from getting too thirsty. In this set you are able to grow beans, cress and zinnia flowers.

If your children loves science and interested in plants and flowers than this set is great for the holidays. This was a fun set for my children and easy to put together. My children learned a lot from this set. It taught them how plants grow and what you need to do for your plants to grow successfully. You can find this set and their other education sets at their website below.

Holiday Safety with Safety 1st

Disclosure: I received one or more products or monetary composition for the exchange for my honest opinion. I only recommend product that I would use personally or believe would be a good fit with my readers. All opinions are 100 percent my own and may differ from yours. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides concerning the use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.

The holidays are fast approaching which means many families will be traveling, shopping are going to holiday parties. As a mom I am always concerned about my children's safety. Since I have a 4 and 6 year old we are always brining car seats and boosters. As a parent I am always interested in learning about car safety tips so I can prote

ct my children when they are in the car. I wanted to share with you from Safety 1st consumer safety experts on "How to Survive the Holiday with Kids! 

According to AAA last year 94.5 million people were on the roads, trains tracks or the skies during the holiday season. Can you believe that? That is a lot of people. Then think about adding your children in the mix. I know as a parent that give me a headache to even think about it. However, Safety 1st has some tips to help fight some of those headaches this season.

  • Avoid peak travel days- Try to avoid busy days like the night before thanksgiving traffic is always horrible. Try not drive for fly before or right after the actual holiday. Those days will be the absolute busiest days to travel. 
  • Prepare your children for the trip you are taking. When traveling or attending a party it can be overwhelming for younger children. Letting your children know that their is traveling or parties planned will help them prepare for the trip and not become overwhelmed. 
  • Are we there yet is the famous question while traveling. To help avoid that dreaded phrase an hour into six hour trip reserve a bag just for the kids, include books, toys, diapers a change of clothes and snacks. If you have an iPad or smartphone prepare kids friendly apps to help pass the time. Make sure you have wipes, bags and hand sanitizer for accidents. The Safety 1st Car Door Sanitation Station is a great solution.
  •      Car Seats – If you are flying check to make sure your car seat is FAA certified. If it’s not clearly labeled contact the manufacture. For parents with older children the Safety 1stBoostAPack can double as a kid survival kit, it’s FAA certified, and will fit in the plane overhead bin.
With any trip that you take you want to make sure that you properly install your child booster or cast seat correctly. Take an extra few seconds and make sure your child lives will depend on it. If it has been awhile you visited a car seat check, it's recommended to check your seat with a Certified Child Safety Technician in advance of your trip.

MMP Living Review (Holiday Gift Guide 2014)

Disclosure: I received one or more products or monetary composition for the exchange for my honest opinion. I only recommend product that I would use personally or believe would be a good fit with my readers. All opinions are 100 percent my own and may differ from yours. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides concerning the use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.


Are you trying to find the perfect gift this holiday season? Well I have a great company that you can find a variety of different items from and that company is called mmp living. I was excited when I was introduced to a new line that they where offer on their site. This collection would be perfect the children who are interested in spy gear. SpyX is a new collection that mmp living is offering just in time for the holiday season.

The first item that I was able to review was their SpyX/ Long Range Wrist Talkies. This product retails for about $44.99. If you have a child like my son who is into the spy stuff than this product is perfect for your child for Christmas. When I received this product the only negative thing about the product was the plastic covering was loose and the product was loose in the box. Although when I tried them they worked great and we did not have any problems. My son had a lot of fun playing with they wrist walkie talkies with his friend from school when he came over for the day. They had different spy missions. With these walkie talkies you can talk to your friends through them up to a mile away. With these walkie takes there are 16 through 22 channels to fine a free channel. What is really fund about these walkie talkies is that they are voice activation that make these walkie talkies fully hands free. 

The next set that we received was their SpyX Night Ranger Surveillance Set. This set retails for 44.99. This set would make a great starting out set for your new spy. This set includes Night Mission Googles, Invisible Ink Pen, Micro Motion Alarm and Micro Voice Disguise. My sons favorite item out of this set is the high tech night vision goggles. They are easy fitting and they don't move a lot. The also let you see up to 25 feet away in the dark and they also include a cool flip out scope. The pen writes message in invisible ink and keep the message safe until you want to reveal your message. This set also has motion alarm that help protect your little spy. What is fun with this is you can record your own voice. 

Over all both sets are amazing and would make great Christmas gifts for your special spy. I would say overall both sets are great quality items and they will hold up for awhile if taken care of. My son can be a little rough at times but their still in great shape. I also think these sets are very creative and a lot of fun. These sets would make a great toy for sleepovers. You can find these items and other great gifts at their website below.
