RingStix

RingStix comes in a set with one projectile ring and two pairs of curved sticks. The ring is the "thrown" by placing it on the two sticks and pulling them apart quickly. The receiver then tries to catch the ring on their sticks. It's a fairly simple to grasp, though it will take a little bit  of practice to get the technique down right. It's the kind of toy that will fit in well at the beach or at a park and offers a fun alternative to a ball or a Frisbee.
My time with RingStix was a bit hit and miss. I had fun playing, but my 8-year old neighbor struggled to really get the flinging technique down, leaving me to wonder if there's too much technique required from RingStix to be a true casual family activity. It could have been just him though. I on the other hand had more success, but never could get a consistently good fling going. The ring will definitely fly if you get it right, and it's really satisfying watching it soar long distances.
RingStix makes for a novel toy to try out, but it's not as easy as it looks. And while it makes for a great beach or park toy, it may not be a great crowded beach or park toy given how it can be hard to control sometimes. Overall, RingStix is a fun family game that gets more fun with practice. Just dont be surprised if/when your kids decide that the stick make for better swords then sticks for the game.

Bake It Pretty

I love Baking. It is one of my many passions. Anyone who bakes will tell you that the first step to making a beautiful baked goods is having the right tools. While you might think it can be expensive to purchase the right tools, it really isn't. Make sure that when you are shopping you remind yourself that spending a little money on high quality products now, will save you from having to spend more money replacing tools later. That is one of the reasons I love Bake it Pretty. You can get some of the best products on the market without having to go broke in the process.
Bake It Pretty has a HUGE selection of cupcake liners. They have several different colors and patterns to choose from making it easy for you to match with your party decor or theme. They even have foil cupcake liners. Bake It Pretty cupcake liners are brightly colored. If you are anything like me, you have noticed that not all cupcake liners are created equally. I am rather picky when it comes to cupcake liners. After all, cupcake liners hold it all together. I admit that I have purchased cheap liners in the past. I wasn't trying to save money but rather time. I was shopping at my local dollar store and saw some really cute pattern liners on the shelf and thought they would be perfect for my upcoming party. After baking with them I wasn't happy. The cake stuck and adhered to the liners making peeling the liners off without destroying the cupcake impossible. I also noticed that those bright colors that I loved about the liners that made me purchase them had faded and weren't as attractive. That wasn't the case with Bake It Pretty cupcake liners. The cupcake liners did not fade even when i used chocolate batter. I love how the colors and patterns stayed just as bright after baking as they were before baking.

Circle E Candles

Like a lot of woman I absolutely love candle, who doesn't like a nice smelling candle or candles burning brightly in their home? It makes me feel cozy and relaxed. I always have them burning in most every room that I know I will be in off and on throughout the day. I recently came across a website and company called Circle E Candles and instantly fell in love with their candles. 
I received a wonderful 28 oz. Bird of Paradise Candle. It smells soooo good! Think strawberries and tons of cream! Oh, its heavenly. I have it lit in my kitchen, where i am most of the time, and i have been burning it every day since i received it. It burns so clean, and i love that! No more blackened ceilings or walls to clean. I am so impressed by the scent that it gives off while burning, it's not potent, it's a soft, soothing scent, everything a candle should be, it is! I also love that it has a burn time of 150-165 hours!! 
The second candle I received is a 12 oz. Buttery French Vanilla Candle. The scent reminds of freshly baked sugar cookies! Just like the Bird of Paradise Candle its not potent, it gives off just the right amount of scent that isn't overwhelming. I've only smelled these two candles but if the rest of Circle E Candles smell this good i'll be sure to purchase many more of them in the future!
Circle E Candles are known for being the longest burning candles on the market! They also hand pout all of their candles and they take pride in what they do, it shows! They also use lead free wicks and high quality heavy glass containers. The candles are absolutely delightful, I highly recommend you all pick one up so you can enjoy them as much as I do!

Kidz Gear Headphones

Kidz Gear is a company that created a line of products for kids that is comparable to adult products in quality but at a price point in line for children's products. They are the first adult-featured stereo headphones made specifically for kids. Manufactured with the same high quality components as those used in standard adult headphone deliver extremely rich sound for a variety of audio content. Featuring both a built-in volume control knob as well as a free independent volume control cable safe for the little ones. They are a must for children in the car, plane  or just hanging out at home.
 These headphones are perfect for kids, and i admit i have tried them out and love them! they have soft cushions to fit comfortably on your child's ears, flexible and adjustable. The volume control is easy for kids to adjust and the cord even has a clip to attach to clothing. Worried about your child turning the volume too high, there is a volume limit cable which is a few inch cord that limits the volume to 80db-90db.
 The kids Gear Headphone volume limit cable is perfect for parents who want their children to listen at a safe level but prefer their own headphones. Since all the Kidz Gear headphones come with kidz control volume limits, you dont need this cord with them but if you have a kid (or teen) who prefers a particular style or brand then let them use it but tell them they have to use the volume control too! Its a win-win for parents! Overall, i'm very impressed with Kidz Gear. It's a great product with a very affordable price.

Pretzil Crisps Review

There are quite a few flavors to choose from! Which i love because sometimes you want more than just original pretzel taste. I personally love the sesame and buffalo wing ones! The flavoring is perfect, it's not overbearing but not bland either. It really helps curb my cravings for junk food. Some of the other flavors they have are: Jalapeno Jack, Garlic Parmesan, Everything, Chipotle Cheddar and the Original!
My Favorite aspect of these healthy treats are how easy they are to fit into a snack bag and bring with me to work or on the go. Also they are delightfully crispy. They give that feeling of eating junk food without actually doing so! The crunchy light texture and flavorings had me wanting to open each bag and try every single flavor in one day! I think you and even your kids (if you have them) would love to munch on these at school or during a movie. Try these next time for your family get together instead of bringing potato chips!
