Kid Basix Safe Sippy/Safe Sporter Review & GIVEAWAY!!!(WINNER: Sbell!)

We were recently sent 4 cups to review from Kid Basix. I always love when a company is nice enough to send one of their products for each of my children to review! This company was great to work with and their products are just that as well...GREAT! My oldest son received the Safe Sporter in the 16oz. size. (Color-Blue) He loves his cup and brings it to school with him to fill with water throughout the day. The schools allow the children to bring their own water bottles now, which I believe is a good idea with the flu season among us. I never really thought water fountains were that great for little kids and germs anyways. The best thing about this cup is that it is stainless steel so the water stays cold, and there are no toxins getting into my child's water. My 6 year old received the Safe Sporter in the 12oz size. (Color-Green) This size was great for him. He loves taking his new cup with him to school and has even told me that some of the other kids have asked where … [Read more...]

Leslie Blodgett Bare Skin Perfume Review

I had the opportunity to sample Leslie Blodgett's Bare Skin perfume. I am always on the look out for a nice smelling perfume. However, I can be sometimes picky about my perfumes as I don't always think all perfumes work well with my body chemistry. When the sample of Bare Skin arrived in the mail I couldn't wait to try it! I love the smell of the perfume, however after wearing it for a little time I started to think that it was one of those scents that didn't mesh well with my body chemistry. I do recommend this new perfume though as I do feel that the smell was very nice and will probably work well for a lot of others. A little about Leslie Blodgett and Bare Skin... Fragrant Memories Introducing Bare Skin, the first fragrance from Leslie Blodgett Perfume Diaries Exclusively for Sephora Inspired by entrepreneurial powerhouse Leslie Blodgett’s dynamic life, Leslie Blodgett Perfume Diaries is a limited edition fragrance collection, created exclusively for Sephora, that revisits … [Read more...]

Relish Review and 1 FREE YEAR Giveaway!!!(WINNER: Mama to 3 Boys!!!)

Meal planning just got a million percent easier. And cheaper.I was recently asked to review this service and was very excited about it! I was actually a little bummed when I found out that I only got to try it out for 1 month but the winner gets a whole FREE YEAR! However, I am excited to be offering one of you a FREE YEAR of this cool service! I have never heard of anything quite like this. The service is actually so very simple. You pick the meals that suit your family, Relish provides you with a grocery list of items to buy to make these meals and all you have to do is print! How cool is that!? To be completely honest though (because I feel that when doing a review one should always be honest) I did not actually use the service a whole lot. I found that most of the meals were not typically things that my family would eat. However, that being said there were still a lot of yummy new recipes that I did come across. The concept of this service is so cool! A little of what the company … [Read more...]

Old El Paso~ El Tacodor Review & Giveaway!(WINNER: SmartCentsMom!)

Who doesn't love Taco Night? Our family LOVES taco night. As a matter of fact we used to have a taco Tuesday where we would all sit down with our favorite tacos or taco salads or some other yummy Mexican plate. We haven't done that in a while, and I'm not really sure why. When My Blog Spark contacted me and asked me to do a review for Old El Paso Tacos I was excited, and so were my boys! They were even more excited to play a game along with our meal! El Tacodor, the world’s only Family Taco Night Game, is a fun and easy way to keep your family laughing at the dinner table. Challenge family members to quick fire trivia, wordplay and pantomime, and share a laughter filled night at home.

They have the best crunchy tacos!) We also received a $10 Gift Certificate to purchase the rest of the ingredients needed to … [Read more...]

Crane Humidifier Review & Giveaway!!!(WINNER: furygirl3132!!!)

With the cold weather and flu season upon us I was happy to receive a Crane Humidifier to review for you all. Have you all seen these humidifiers yet? They have the cutest humidifiers that are perfect for a child's room. We received a red dragon humidifier. When I opened the box the boys initially thought they just got a cool new toy! I did have to explain to them that they were not allowed to mess with it, but they really just love watching it shoot mist out the top of it! They think it is so cool that the dragon is "breathing fire" as they like to say. I really can't say that I have any complaints with this little humidifier. It definitely does it's job and is very friendly to look at. I highly recommend it if you are in the need of a humidifier for your child's room or playroom. We actually currently have ours in the living room since this is the room that we spend the most time in and I would be able to review it best in. A little about the Crane Cool Mist Humidifier … [Read more...]

Busy Bee Basics Child Apron Review & Giveaway!!!(WINNER: Mama Karebare!)

We do a lot of crafts in our family. It is actually one of my favorite things to do with the boys. They will stay busy for hours doing a good craft. The only downfall to our love of crafts is the mess! You know what I’m talking about if you have ever sat a small child at a table with a bunch of paints or glue. I do however think that the fun is so well worth the mess later. Recently I came across a website that has the cutest little aprons. When I showed them to my 4 year old he got ALL excited! For those of you that remember we did a craft not long ago and he got paint ALL over his clothing, and I couldn’t get it out! I was a bit frustrated by this and have since been trying to find him a fun cover up. We chose the Blue Hippos on Green apron. It is so cute! I actually thought it was even cuter in person! One thing that I really love about this apron is that it can be washed! My 4 year old put the apron on immediately. He actually wore it most of the day and as you can see … [Read more...]

Fiber One Toaster Pastry Review and Giveaway!(WINNER: Stephanie!!!)

Recently I received a sample of Fiber One Toaster Pastries to try. Yesterday I went on a field trip with my oldest son. We were in a hurry to get out the door in the morning and while my son was able to sit down and have a nice breakfast I just didn't have the time. That's when I remembered that I had received the sample a couple of days ago. This was a great time to try it out! I received the Brown Sugar and Cinnamon flavor. To be honest I thought it was going to be just another pop tart, but full of fiber, and probably not very tasty. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it was actually very good! I put mine in the toaster for a few minutes, so when I ate it it was nice and warm and yummy! My baby had to try it out as well and he loved it too! (He's always stealing my food, but sometimes he spits things back at me because he hasn't yet acquired the taste for things like I have.) A little about Fiber One Toaster Pastries... They come in four great-tasting varieties that the … [Read more...]

Yo Plus Light Yogurt Review & Giveaway!(WINNER: Blueviolet!!!)

I was excited when My Blog Spark contacted me and asked if I would be willing to do a review and giveaway of Yo Plus Yogurt! I have been trying to feed my family healthier foods and everyone in my family LOVES yogurt! I must admit though that I am not a huge yogurt fan myself. I took the boys to the store with me when I was picking out the yogurt. (We were given 2 coupons for 2 free 4 packs of Yo Plus Light Yogurt.) I was really hoping to try 2 different flavors, but the boys won out and we ended up with 2 packs of the Strawberry Banana flavor. The “Get Healthy” gift pack that we received included a stylish sports bag, sports towel, ear buds and two free coupons* for any flavor of the new YoPlus Light yogurt. When I took the first bite I really expected to not like it. I thought that since I hadn't cared for yogurt in the past I wasn't going to like it. I was wrong! It was actually quite yummy! I wasn't able to eat more than one little yogurt bowl though because my boys had … [Read more...]
