Then add your own kids into the mix of congestion and for some it can mean holiday headaches.  However, Safety 1stnofollow has some tips to help fight some of those headaches this season.
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.

cid:image009.jpg@01CFCDA0.CF167290Recently I came across a new toy product called Shopkins Small Mart Playset. I will be honest that I have never heard of Shopkins before, but when I received this product for review I was quite impressed. My daughter is very imaginative and loves to play with new things. The only bad thing about this set would be that there is tiny pieces and they get lost easy. Well in my home were very busy and sometimes my four year old loves to hide things. This toy is great when it supervised and put away so the pieces can not get lost. 

This play set lets your kids shop until they drop with their new Shopkins.  Shopkins is a line of super cute, super tiny, grocery themed collectibles. This set comes with everything you can imagine that you find at the grocery store. It has a check out, grocery bags, items to put in the grocery cart, a grocery cart and so much more. What is unique about this play set is that it also comes with delivery chute where they can drop their groceries down. My daughter loves the checkout lane where their is a conveyer belt and a register. My daughter spent hours play with this set. 

What is also great about Shopkins is that you can add other play sets to make this set grow. There are also tons of other characters that you can join also. Which is great where you can add to the set and have other play set that will go along to add with hours of fun. Make sure you pick up some Shopkin play sets for your little ones. You can find these play sets at your local Walmart.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques 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 have a great product that would make a great stocking stuffer for this holiday season! Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques is a new and innovative approach to makeup. Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques uses the finest, natural and certified organic plant oils and extracts, soothing flower essences, plus beautiful minerals and pigments from the earth to create the best make for your skin.

Your probably thinking why organic make up? Well our skin absorbs up to 60 percent of what we apply to our face. With majority of products that are out there on the market they contain harmful chemicals, petroleum based ingredients, artificial colors and fragrances and more. They also clog up pores and those products can also make the aging process faster. Organically grown plants have been found to contain greater amount of vitamins, nutrients and anti oxidants than plants grown with pesticides. Lauren Brook Cosmetiques believes in the best ingredients for their products. 

I was able to receive one of their pressed eyeshadow compacts for review. When I received the package in the mail I was quite impressed with the packaging. The eyeshadow was wrapped in bubble wrap then surround by peanuts. It was also wrapped in nice pink tissue paper. I received their Tanzi/ Moon Dust duo. The main ingredients in this product is Zinc that has natural UVA & UVB protection. This protects your skin from free radical damage. Broccoli Seed which provides Vitamin A & Essential fatty acids and moisturizing. Their is also orange peel was that provides a protective barrier for the skin.  Their is also lecithin which helps rebuild, restorative agent and supplies vitamin B. Jojoba helps nourish and hydrates your skin. The last ingredient is allantoin this stimulates new and healthy tissue growth.

The big test with this product is how easy it to apply and how long the wear is. I also liked how the duo comes with an applicator. When I applied the eye shadow is was very creamy and went on smoothly. They shadow looked very silky and it was very easy to blend. I was quite impressed that it lasted throughout the day. I would definitely recommend Lauren Brooke Cosmetics for the holiday season and they would make great holiday stocking stuffers!!

For this holiday are you looking for something unique to give as a gift. I know personally I love going out during the summer to the beach or outdoor concerts.   I love taking my kids with me but they love to sit on the ground and sometimes lay on the ground. I could never find the right product to bring with me when we go out. Recently I came across a great company called Sand Cloud Apparel.

Sand Cloud Apparel offer a new kind of towel that are different from the rest. They offer a variety of different colors also. This towel is perfect for my children. When I received the towel in the mail I was surprised on how soft the towel was. When I bring towels to lay down on majority of them give me a reaction or they are to scratchy. This one was just perfect. I also like how they put a pillow in the towel so you can lay down and be comfortable. I would say that would be on of the major benefits of this towel. I know when we go to the fireworks my children get a little tired and these towels are perfect for this occasion. 

This would make a perfect gift for the holidays. Would be just in time for that perfect trip that you are taking or for spring break that will be here shortly.

Ozeri Pan 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.





Have you wondered if a Nonstick Frying Pan is really nonstick? I have plenty of times. That is the one thing that drives me nuts when it is a nonstick pan and it sticks anyways. Well recently I have heard and read that Ozeri Pan is one of the best. Well you know what I had to do next is to see it for myself to believe it. I was lucky that I was able to review their Ozeri Green Earth Texture Ceramic Nonstick Frying Pan. Ozeri Pan utilizes Greblon and ultra safe ceramic coating from Germany which is 100 percent PTFE and PFOA free. What I thought that was different about this pan is that is a textured pan surface that delivers unprecedented non stick performance without releasing those harmful fumes or toxins that other pans release when temperatures are hot. What I thought was interesting is this pan is somewhat heavier than others and is made out of heavy gauge die cast aluminum. Well after learning all about this pan I wanted to test it out and see if this pan is really as good as everyone has been saying. 
 
I decided I was going to make rice crispy treats on the stove today. I was going to melt the gooey marshmallows in this pan. While I am getting everything I need for this recipe. I am thinking in my head there is not way this pan is not going to get sticky from the marshmallows. One of the main reasons I do not make rice crispy treats is because of the mess of making them. Usually the pan is a huge mess and not worth it. Well when I started melting the marshmallows in the pan let me tell you one thing. Not once did the marshmallow stick on the pan. I was truly amazed on how well it did not stick. It melted nicely and I was able to stir it without sticking. I was highly impressed. Now I know that I can make anything and not fear a huge mess afterwards. I know your thinking yea right. Well these picture do not lie and will show you how well it did not stick. If you do not already own a Ozeri Pan you should visit here and get one!! I would highly recommend this pan. 

You can find this product on Amazon, Sears or Home Depot

Are you looking for something special for that sport fanatic in your family? I have the perfect gift to share with you that any sport fanatic will for Christmas. This year do something different for the holiday season and give them the gift of chocolate with the #1 Fan Collection offering Replica Chocolate Stadiums and Arenas. 

They have different sports available such as football, baseball, hockey, and basketball. Their are many different options available for your special sport fanatic. 

When I received mine in the mail I was quite surprised. It came in a nice metal tin. I received a soccer chocolate stadium for review. So my tin was white and it had #1 fan on top of the tin. It also had ribbon across the tin. The ribbon was very cute an had soccer balls across it. I thought it added a little something extra. When I opened up the tin the chocolate stadium was in side. I also like how they had it in protective plastic so it would not break during shipping and handling. The stadium top had engraved soccer symbols. Inside of was a detailed soccer stadium they also had soccer ball chocolates also.

Overall I was quite impressed with this idea and it would make a great holiday gift idea for that sports fan in your life!!


 At a price of $34.95 they make an affordable holiday gift and are available atwww.sportschocolates.com.

zip shoes giveaway

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 was given the opportunity to review Zipz Shoes. I got my package in the mail very quick after ordering. They were packaged very nice. I was very excited to see these shoes, because the concept just seemed different. You see, the great thing about Zipz shoes is that instead of having hundreds of pairs of shoes, you can just buy new panels and zip them on the soles. They are great for traveling. Zipz will even let you design your own pair if you can't find a pair you like in one of there many choices.






I went with a slip on that had the black design. A shoe that could go with everything. When I first tried these shoes on, I thought they would need to be broke in. To my surprise they were very comfortable right from the start. I wore them the whole day. Every where I went people were asking questions, and I was showing off the zippers on the shoes. I must admit, I was a bit nervous to try to unzip the shoe, in fear that it wouldn't zip back up. But it went very smooth. 







If you are looking for a pair of shoes that are very comfortable, and great for many occasions, and all weather, try zipz. They are also available in Hi-tops and Slip ons.As well as, Hermosa You can find Zipz shoes on twitter and facebook.
