Babylit Books

About Babylit Books
"With the timeless popularity of classic writers like Lewis Carroll, Charlotte Bronte, Jane Austen, and William Shakespeare, BabyLit® is a fashionable way to introduce your toddler to the world of classic literature.
At BabyLit, we believe in the power of reading. Why? Because books take us places. Good places. And when we read with a child, we go places together. It’s more than just reading. It’s learning. It’s experiencing. It’s growing. If a million copies of our books encourage just one parent to read with their child, we will have succeeded. And printed a lot of books.
So while the world wonders why babies need classic literature, we will be reading."

I was given three wonderful books, The Jungle Book, Alice In Wonderland, and The Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn. Before I even opened a book, I was impressed, Babylit Books aren't your typical baby board book. It's very thick and sturdy, looks like it will hold up very nicely. Every book was also very beautifully designed with lots of bright colors and pictures. Babylit takes stories that all of us love and make them toddler friendly. They explain the story line in a very easy to understand way, its short enough that children won't lose interest, and makes you wanted more.

Namaste Foods

Namaste Foods is a gluten free food manufacturer with an extensive line of products, including baked goods, pizza crust, flour blends and pasta dishes. Daphne Taylor founded Namaste Foods as a way to help create gluten free and allergen free foods for a friend’s son. In addition to being gluten free, Namaste Foods are also free of soy, potato, corn, tree nuts, peanuts, casein and dairy. Their products are made in dedicated allergen-free facilities and contain no GMO (genetically modified) ingredients.






I had the opportunity to try two of their products, the Pasta Pisavera and the Spice Cake (yes, cake). The Pasta Pisavera is pasta and a spice packet. The package offers ways to jazz up the dish with different vegetables to add more flavors and nutrients to the dish. As someone tha doesn’t need to avoid gluten, I am always impressed with how great gluten free pasta is—and this product was no exception. Paying close attention to the cooking time, the pasta was the perfect texture and consistency—very enjoyable. As for the spice packet, it was a tasty seasoning for the pasta. Being a tomato sauce-type of person, I was impressed with the flavors of the seasoning. I didn’t even need the whole seasoning packet. As for the vegetable suggestions, go for it. Adding more vegetables gives different and delicious flavors as well as packing more veggies into your meal. They provide great suggestions to guide you to yummy choices.

Lady Cremo Shaving Cream

  
Description
This product is made for women who have trouble with razor rash, bumps, and nicks. When you have these sorts of issues, what’s usually going on is that there is insufficient lubrication between the razor and your skin. That causes it to drag on your skin, which in turn causes it to start pulling bits of flesh away making you bleed. This is what also causes it to really fail in giving you a close result. With the right product, that can change dramatically.
Lady Cremo Cream Shaving Cream is designed so that it has no air in it. Essentially, most of the products like this that you would pick up at a grocery store are really foams and they are mostly air. That means that there really is not as much between your flesh and the blade as you might think. With this, there is plenty. One of the things that people sometimes forget is that it’s a good idea to refresh whatever you’re using while you are getting rid of unwanted hair between passes. This provides extra glide; and even though it consumes more of what you’re using, it can really make a difference as far as keeping your body healthy and not letting it get all irritated.






Ingredients:
Water (Aqua), Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Stearic Acid, Glycol Distearate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Polyether-1, Hydroxypropyl Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Allantoin, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Xylitol, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Fruit, Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Extract, Olea Europaea (Olive) Leaf Extract, Xylitol, Perfluoromethylcyclopentane, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Benzyl salicylate, Benzyl benzoate, Titanium Dioxide, Citric Acid, Butylphenyl Methylpropional(Lillal), Limonene, Coumarin, Fragrance (Parfum)






No matter how careful I am when I shave my legs, I always cut myself. I'm not sure how but I will cut myself 5-10 times EVERY TIME I shave. When I received Lady Cremo Shaving Cream I was pretty skeptical. Dreading shaving my legs I decided to try this and see if it really works! IT DOES! I shaved my legs like I always do except this time I used Lady Cremo Shaving Cream. I didn't cut my legs at all! This will be a product I buy over and over again!

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.

                           

If you would like more information or if you would like to make a purchase, please visit the  Bake It Pretty Website.Bake It Pretty offers a flat rate shipping charge of $5.95 on all orders over $50.00.

Smart Mom Jewelry Teething Bling


                                                   

In 2002, stay at home mothers, Kendra and Amy, came together and formed Smart Mom LLC.  They had a vision of making teethable jewelry that was fashionable for mothers to wear and safe for babies to chew on.  They are also a family orientated business so if you call them, don’t be surprised if you hear the joyful squeals of children in the background, as they allow children in their office.


                           


I Received the bling rainbow tumbler. My favorite thing about Smart Mom Jewelry is that they have SOO many different styles and color options to choice from. I am a fan of bright colors so this one was right up my alley. They also have more practical necklaces that are single color pendants. 

                              


With little ones always wanting to grab and chew on anything and everything they can get their little hands on, having a necklace that is cute and they can chew on is incredible. I definitely recommend Smart Mom Jewelry Teething Bling for all little ones.

True Organics Juice

About Grimmway Farms:

“The story of Grimmway begins right here in an agricultural haven known as the Southern San Joaquin Valley in central California. The Grimm brothers began nurturing their family business in the fertile soil of Kern County more than 3 decades ago. Today, their roots run deep. Grimmway Farms has grown to become the largest grower, producer and shipper of carrots in the world; but the family still insists on walking the fields, visiting the processing facilities and performing their own brand of quality assurance – every single day. In 1968 when Rod and Bob Grimm set up their first roadside produce stand, the brothers made a promise: always take care of the customer.
Decades later, that promise has never been broken. Grimmway Farms’ dedication to consistent quality and dependable service has made us the global leader in our industry.
Yet no matter how the size and scope of our company grows, every Grimmway employee is committed to staying true to our founding philosophies: provide good value, honest pricing and conduct business with integrity.
Grimmway believes in providing service to our customers on a personal level. We believe that today’s consumer wants food products that are innovative, exciting and nutritious. All good reasons Grimmway chooses to partner with other industry forerunners to develop creative new product ideas our consumers and their families will enjoy.
Acknowledging and responding to the issues important to our customers is important to us. To address the growing consumer demand for pesticide-free fruits and vegetables, Grimmway Farms is continuously developing new avenues of opportunity. In 2001, we acquired Cal-Organics, a pioneer organic produce company providing more than 75 organic product offerings.


Your safety and confidence are of the utmost importance to us.
Food Safety

My Thoughts:

Cal-Organic and Grimmway Farms (both product lines under the same umbrella) are the two primary brands my family looks to when we shop for carrots. In a market full of produce, I typically smell, feel and evaluate the texture of the produce before buying it. In this case, I have always been able to trust that these carrots are fresh, plump and organically grown without scrutinizing them. We don’t typically buy much packaged produce–but Grimmway Farms definitely makes the cut.
We mainly buy the baby carrots and fresh carrots with the greens attached. They are perfect for our girl’s school lunches and our labrador Kona also enjoys them. The carrot stixx make for an excellent salad topper or a healthy fresh boost for mac & cheese–and the carrot coins are a nice addition to a veggie stir fry. I have fun using my imagination with these carrot products. The ways you can use them are virtually endless–and you can always feel good about the nutritional benefits you’re receiving from this root vegetable.
I’ve developed a recent affinity for Grimmway’s new True Organic juices. They are incredibly tasty. My favorite is the pure carrot juice. The other flavors like Bananaberry Crush and Blended Blue taste sublime–but I stay mindful that they are loaded with sugar, since they are mostly fruit. I typically add a few gulps to a green drink so that I get a boost of sweetness without consuming the whole bottle of fruitiness at once.
It’s neat to witness a brand like this, whose values are so high, doing so well and now creating organic juices. That makes me happy for Grimmway and happy for consumers to have access to these products. These products are available in many grocery stores in the produce section, so be sure to keep an eye out for these root-y goodies.
