Woolzies Review and Giveaway



One thing I get tired of seeing are the fabric softener sheets for the dryer. It seems like they are everywhere. They get tangled in your clean clothes and somewhere along the way manage to fall out. Woolzies offers a solution to that. Woolzies are a set of six "dryer balls" that you place in the dryer with your clothes just like you would dryer sheets, except you don't take them out when you take the clothes out. In fact, since they are guaranteed to last at least 1,000 loads, you can leave them in the dryer for quite awhile.

Woolzies are handmade from fine New Zealand wool and are safe for people with wool sensitivities. They are also hypoallergenic and chemical free. Woolzies help eliminate wrinkles, reduces static, naturally softens your clothes, and reduces drying time by 25%.

I have been using the Woolzies for about a week now and I LOVE them. It has been so nice to not be picking through laundry for dryer sheets and randomly finding them all over my house. I also have to agree that they reduce wrinkles. They soften my clothes just like fabric softener sheets without the pain.

Another reason I love them is that they save you from constantly having to buy boxes of dryer sheets. No more late night runs to the store when you realize you are out!


I love this product and will continue to use them for our laundry!

Zipz Shoes Review and Giveaway

Zipz Shoes is a line of interchangeable shoes – you can choose different soles and covers to create a shoe that’s truly you. The cover zips to the sole, so you can choose several different cover patterns and/or colors, and sole colors, and switch them out depending on your mood for the day. There are several lines to choose from including adult and youth hi-tops, lo-tops, and zip-ons and, within each of these lines, there are several design and color options.



I had no problem getting the cover unzipped from the sole, but when I first tried to get it to zip back on I couldn't for the life of me make it work. I assumed that a zipper is a zipper is a zipper; however, there is a little trick to getting these particular zippers to work. I had to pull out away from the shoe and pull forward. Once I tried that, it zipped back on easily time and time again.

Snack Taxi Review

If you commute to work or pack lunches for your kids to go to school, then you have probably gone through a ton of plastic Ziploc bags. But now, thanks to this cool little company called SnackTaxi, you can use reusable bags for your sandwiches and snacks, and avoid using plastic bags altogether.


Environmental Facts From SnackTaxi…
Here are some sobering enviro facts on plastic from the SnackTaxi card (which comes with each SnackTaxi reusable bag…)
  • Each year, an estimated 500 billion to 1 trillion plastic bags are consumed worldwide.  That’s over 1 million per minute.
  • Worldwide, an estimated 4 billion plastic bags end up as litter each year.
  • Each reusable bag you use has the potential to eliminate an average of 1,000 plastic bags over the course of its lifetime.
This little bag can make a world of difference, which is really cool.

Why I Love SnackTaxi Reusable Sandwich and Snack Bags

  • They’re funky and colorful.  Why would you want to take a boring old Ziploc to work when you could have one of these?  And, SnackTaxi has tons of designs, many which will appeal to kids.  Think of how much your kids would love to have a funky sandwich bag…
  • SnackTaxi reusable sandwich bags are very well made. Nothing leaks or spills out.
  • SnackTaxi is family run.  They were invented by Erin Kelly-Dill, a mother of 3 who got tired of using hundreds of plastic bags for her kids’ lunches.  She got creative, and now owns a booming business that not only helps the environment in a big way, but provides jobs to local sewers in western Massachusetts.
  • They’re also completely washable.  I usually just rinse mine out, but if I get a major jam smear or something on the inside, then I just throw it in the wash and let it air dry.
  • These SnackTaxis will hold anything.  Yes, the bigger size is perfect for sandwiches, but the small snack bags are great for almonds, dried fruit, cookies, crackers, cut apples…you name it.  And because of the way the lid folds over, it makes a seal so that crumbs won’t fall out.

There’s nothing I don’t love about these little cuties.  They’re colorful, they’re eco-friendly, and they’re cheap.  Compared to all the good they do, I think $8.95 is a bargain.  And, they’ll last a long time, especially if you hand wash them.

Pampers Kandoo Review and Giveaway

Pampers Kandoo products really are made with your child in mind.  They are made with the thought of fostering your child's independence in mind.  Most products aren't made this way and it can be very difficult and frustrating for not only the child, but the parent as well.

 Pampers Kandoo 2-in-1 Conditioning Shampoo



How cute is in the little frog bottle first of all?!  I think that is adorable.  And it fits perfectly right in the corner of the tub, where little hands can reach it.  The pump lets out one quarter sized dollop of shampoo, just enough to wash your little one.  It feels silky and soft and leaves the hair the same way.  It lathered up great too!  We received Berry scented and it smelt so good!

The hand soap, shampoo & body wash come in Funny Berry, Tropical Smoothie & Magic            Melon scent
The shampoo is tear free and dermatologist scented. 
It contains Vitamin E and natural fruit extracts to help clean and condition. 
It's hypoallergenic and contains no parabens or SLS.

Pampers Kandoo Flushable Wipes


I really love a product that works to help toddlers and preschoolers learn to be independent.  When they can do something on their own that fosters their self-confidence.  I also like that Pampers Kandoos flushable wipes are hypoallergenic & scent free.  Children have such sensitive skin and I personally do not feel scents should be used on such personal products. The wipe itself is the perfect size for a child to use.  It's about the size of 2 sheets of toilet paper.  The soft pack is easy to use and one wipe comes out at a time.  Nothing is more annoying than trying to hold down your child so that they don't get their dirty mess all over the place & then have all of the wipes attached to one another.  And they are completely safe to flush!  

Cleans up to 30% better than toilet better 
Perfect for little hands 
Biodegradable  
Sewer and septic safe 
Wipes come in Magic Melon and Sensitive (hypoallergenic and scent free)
Moistened with lotion to  help for a thorough cleaning
Available in soft-packs, tubs, & refills

Boogie Wipes Review and Giveaway

Boogie wipes are seriously the best things ever. They come in a variety of scents, Great Grape, Fresh Scent, Magic Menthol (for extra stuffy noses), Simply Unscented and Boogieberry. I especially love the magic menthol; I have even used them on myself. I can rub one of the wipes on the boogies and they stick to the wipe and come out without fail! No more frustrated baby J I have since used these for EVERYTHING. They're perfect for runny noses, cleaning face and hands after eating, cleaning up messes from crafts, coloring, and painting... you name it. Some other uses I've heard of: Cleaning candy and gum out of hair Cleaning makeup off your face, they’re gentle so as not to redden your nose but strong and durable for really messy job.

Rosebud Perfume Company Review

The fragrance is what you notice first with the Minty Rose lip balm and you need to like it or not mind it when you use this product because the smell is obvious when you first apply. So you should only buy it after you smell it. Personally I prefer natural scents and the minty rose scent here is a bit cloying. It gives a slightly pink but very natural color when you apply. However as some have mentioned, it can get a bit oily looking in hot and humid climates so I usually use this at night before bed. This really helps lips to become soft overnight. However when I was using this every day I noticed it wasn't as effective. So I tend to rotate this with other balms. Overall a good lip balm that will save parched lips.
The salve is wonderful; I am addicted to the stuff. It helps dry cuticles and hands and it makes your lips feel marvelous. It makes your lips shiny and glossy without a bunch of goo that most glosses give you. It’s great for burns and bug bites in a pinch.

As for the Strawberry lip balm, that product is wonderful when used alone, under gloss, over a lip stick or mixed with eye shadow to custom create a lip color. I love this, the balm has a soft silky feeling and when applied to the lips you can feel that there's something definitely on the lips. My lips get cracked and dry quickly so I love to apply this thickly on my lips and it makes them very soft and crack-free.
