Baby Banana Review and Giveaway

Image
Baby Banana was so kind and sent me 2 of their products to review and 1 for a giveaway for one of you lucky viewers. The two 2 items I received were the pink banana and the corn on the cob. The yellow banana in the picture below is what the winner of the giveaway will receive. All 3 of the items are $8.95. They are 100% food-grade silicone, BPA, latex, and phthalate free, as dishwasher and freezer friendly. They are infant toothbushes/teethers.
 I love how cute and different they are. They are the perfect size for little hands and help teach kids at a very young age the importance of good oral hygiene. When I found out these were freezer safe I was thrilled. As all of you know, who have had to deal with a teething baby, cold is vey soothing and helps give the little one relief for a while. The little ones will LOVE these!




I mean... come on.. These are so stinking cute! Baby Banana also has toothpaste and other teethers as well as a toddler tooth brush. Make sure you head over to th…

Safe Ringz Review and Giveaway

Image
Safe Ringz was so kind and sent me one of their rings to review. I received the color platinum silver. I love the case it comes in, it's not like your traditional case. It's this little metal tin with the Safe Ringz logo and the ring is inside. I like that it has a case for storing when not using it and for traveling. Often times rings are the things that get lost, they are small and tend to just vanish in thin air.








My husband and I both work in jobs that can either damage our rings, and lose our rings very easily.  I have to wear gloves and am washing my hands constantly do other task which can lead to my ring falling off. My husband works with materials that can damage his ring. So Safe Ringz  are so great for us. These silicone rings are easy to wear, are so cute, and they are durable and last a long time.


My husband loved the color of the ring. It looks like real silver. He isn't a big fan of silicone rings that are different colors and look very fake, so this wa…

Image
Roxies House of Joy was so kind and sent me one of their everything blanket & giftbag.







I received this adorable blanket in the cutest print! i love how it has 2 different prints, one side is white with black polka dots, and the other is the adorable sun and striped print. And it came in a cute little bag with a draw sting. Their blankets are made from 100% of cotton Muslin, its a medium weight and the blanket is very large! As many of you know, swaddles and Muslin blankets are often times small and only really work for newborns or small babies, and they quickly out grow them. You don't have to worry about that with Roxie's House of Joy!
Roxie's House of Joy also has great customer service. I talked with a few people and they are were so kind and very helpful!

Groove Ring Review and giveaway

Image
Groove was so kind and sent me one of their rings to review and they are also hosting a giveaway. They are giving away 5 free rings to 5 lucky people! Groove has beautiful silicone rings. My husband and I both work in places that cause damage to rings. I work in an adult foster care home which involves lots of gloves and washing of the hands as well as other not so fun tasks which can damage my regular wedding ring. My husband works as a lab tech dealing with wax... VERY sticky wax that ruins his regular wedding band. It is so nice to wear these silicone wedding bands to work!







They come in this super cute container, which is also very nice for storing the rings when you arent using them. They also have so many different colors to pick from, I also really like that the inside of the ring is colored, adds a little pop to the ring.




I also like that they have thick and thin bands, the one pictured below is the thick one. It also has the infinity sign on every ring which to me, adds a li…

Image
Chookie : noun, sweetheart or little one Chookie. Chew key. Get it? Chookie is actually british slang meaning child or sweetheart. Let your chookie have some of our Chookies!  Of course, what kind of business would we be if we weren't safe for your sweet chookie to chew on?

The Mommy Hook Review and Giveaway

Image
The Mommy hook was VERY kind and sent me one of their mommy hooks to review as well as 5 to giveaway to my awesome viewers!






The mommy hook is a stroller assistant hook that allows you to hang all the essential bags on one small hook without having to overstuff the stroller. I can not tell you how many times I have overstuffed the stroller basket making it impossible to get anything out when you need it! This mommy hook may seem silly but it is so nice! The one thing I will warn you about it counter weight.. If you have a lot of weight in the bags you hang on the hook, when you take baby out of the stroller there is a good chance that your stroller will tip backwards! I say that because it happened to me! LOL


I also like using this when I go grocery shopping, I can simply hang this on the front of the cart and hang my purse/diaper bag and I don't have to worry about bags taking up cart space or crowding baby. I also love how reasonably priced these are! Make sure you enter the g…

Aqueduck Review

Image
Aqueduck was very kind and sent me one of their faucet extenders to review. Anyone with little ones have had to deal with them not being able to reach to faucet to wash their hands so you have to hold them up (for me it's always with a knee) while trying to help them turn the water on and off and wash their hands.. Lets face it, it's annoying! Aqueduck has made products to help with just that! The faucet extender creates a nice waterfall towards the middle/edge of the sink making it so little hands can reach the water without help from an adult.


Aqueduck also has a product to go on your bathtub, protecting littles heads and also makes that really nice waterfall like the faucet extender does. They also carry a Aqueduck handle extender which connects to the handle of the faucet which allows little ones to be completely independent when washing their hands, from turning the water on and off and actually washing their hands. I highly recommend all their products.


 Make sure you …

My Modern Kid Review and Giveaway

Image
My Modern Kid was so very kind and sent me a few things to review, they are also giving all my viewers a 15% off purchase coupon code and they are hosting a giveaway where the winner will win a $30 gift card to their site!


First off, let me say that My Modern Kid has SO many adorable things for your little ones. They have clothes, bibs, swaddles, and more. They carry the latest and most trendy clothes at a super reasonable price point.





This was the first thing I opened and of course I was thrilled. This is a matching head band and swaddle set, and it only costs $13.49 and they have so many cute prints! They also sell this cool sleepsacks with matching headbands which are a little easer to put on and they little ones can't get out of them as easily as a regular swaddle.



Next thing was this onesie. Now the one thing I'm not a huge fan of is the fact that the clothes are made and distributed from china so the sizing isn't what we are used to, this says its a size 80 which …

Surya Brasil Nail Polish Review

Image
The Exotic Animals Nail Polish collection is inspired by nature's wonderful colors to leave your nails beautiful and healthy. There are many vibrant and bright colors, each one dedicated to a specific exotic animal from all over the world. 









7-FREE: 
NO CamphorNO DBPNO FormaldehydeNO ParabensNO TolueneNO ingredients of animal originNO animal testing



I am a nail polish fanatic, I paint my nails once a week at least. These nail polishes are so nice! These are honestly the longest lasting regular nail polishes I have ever tried, they last about a week and a half for me. And that is saying a lot because I wash my hand countless times for my job. Their colors are bright, vibrant, and they are all free of everything I dislike. I also feel comfortable putting this on little kids which I am very hesitant to do with most other brands of polish. I really recommend these nail polishes. I am excited to order other items from them and try our some of the many other things they offer.

Chewy.com Review

Image
As all of you know, I am a huge fan of chewy.com. I have yet to find a website like chewy, and no one compares to their prices. The item I received to review is the Blue Buffalo Boo Bars,





If you want to know details about what is all in these dog treats, head over to chewy.com :) Blue Buffalo is one of the best brands for giving your pets all the good stuff and none of that fake artificial crap. As mentioned above, Chewy has the absolute best prices. These dog treats are 67% off normal prices on other sites and they have fast 1-2 day shipping and every order of $49 is free. I can not speak highly enough on chewy, they have great products, great prices, great costumer service, everything is great.

What Da Fluff and Review and Giveaway

Image
What Da Fluff is a monthly subscription box for only $15 a month. It lets you pick if you want a girl, boy, or gender neutral box. I received the gender neutral box. My box came with an old style Alva diaper in the color orange with a charcoal bamboo insert. It also came with 2 little pieces of candy, a 9 piece wooden puzzle, a little yellow loofa, a cucumber face mask, and a Sesame Street number write and wipe workbook.





So if I'm being honest Alva isn't my first pick when it comes to diapers but they do work. My biggest issue with them is the fit. They fit bigger babies which is nice for big babies or babies who are at the end of cloth diapering and beginning stages of potty training. I have to use cloth diaper tricks to make them fit smaller babies so often times I just gravitate towards the diapers that fit both small and big babies.  As for everything else... So nice! I love that they put things for momma into each box. They have a description on their site that explains t…

Chewy.com

Image
It's that time again for another Chewy.com review. This month Chewy.com sent me
fresh step febreze freshness extreme Hawaiian aloha clumping cat litter to review.  I've used Fresh Step before and liked it but ive always been a bit scared to try to the scented cat litters. I've used a scented litter before and it stunk so bad once the cat peed in the box. It smelled worse than if it wasn't scented.







Both my cats used this without any issues. I've had problems in the past with changing litter. They sniffed it a few times then without second thought, used it. I love how this smells so fresh and nice. It turns the stinkiest part of our house into just another room. Now to review Chewy.com. Chewy is such a great site! They offer stuff for all types of pets and at discount rates. They also ship super fast so no worries if you forgot to buy something until last minute and its almost gone. I love that Chewy.com saves me a trip to another store, we are always on our phones …

Snap-EZ All In One Training Pants

Image
Snap-EZ not only sent me a pair or their All In One Training Pants but they also donated 55 cloth diapers to hurricane victims. They sent 55 of their smallest diapers which Snap-EZ no longer sells. As for the training pants.


Snap-EZ Training Pants feature a durable, waterproof outer fabric  with a  "feel wet" cotton velour inner. The visible elastic around the waist and legs is latex free,  super soft and stretchy, allowing these to be pulled off and pulled on much like underwear.

These is also have a 4 layer cotton velour soaker sewn inside for good absorbency while remaining nice and trim!

The inner Cotton Velour helps your child to know when they are wet, without feeling soaked like flannel and it's oh-so-soft on your child's skin! These have two set of snaps for adjustment for leg and waist.





I love how trim these are, often times training pants are thick and make their pants super buldgy and big. Snap-EZ has a very trim yet very absorbent layer sewn in so you nev…

Lil Joey Newborn Cloth Diaper

Image
I explained in the blog post before this one who I was skeptical on having a newborn stash, but after getting some newborn diapers that I love I understand the hype and would suggest newborn diapers to everyone, especially these! Lil Joeys are the smallest newborn diapers that we have, which means it was the first diaper to fit but it was also the first to get put away.





Lil Joeys are unlike any newborn cloth diaper I have ever seen. They have a unique inner double gusset which holds in that super liquidy breast fed poo.





They also have have an umbilical cord snap down which fits perfectly under the stump which makes this the perfect first diaper for baby. The one thing Im not a huge fan of, is how naturally it curves which makes washing kinda a pain.. It folds closed so the first time I washed this, I found a little poo still on the diaper until I learned a little trick. I fold the diaper inside out and snap the diaper closures together, it makes it so it gets SUPER clean. No more wa…

Grovia New Born All in One

Image
I always though cloth diapering a newborn was kinda silly, you spend all that money on your cloth diaper stash of one size diapers and you have to buy a full stash of newborn? It just never made any sense to me... But once I got my hands on the Grovia newborn diaper I understood the hype. One, I love the idea of baby never being in a disposable, I like that the first time a diaper goes on their little bums it will be a soft natural fiber diaper. With that being said, Grovia didn't fit right away after birth, not because of size but because the umbilical cord stump was getting covered by the diaper.





As you can see from the picture above, the diaper does have a one snap rise, which helps make this diaper last longer than some other newborn cloth diapers. I also like the tongue style insert! I did find that baby outgrew the absorbency before the diaper but that was easily fixed with putting a booster under the tongue insert.









Ever since getting my hands on this newborn diaper, I know …

Wella Elements Shampoo and conditioner

Image
I have such thin hair, so I decided to take the plunge and get keratin bounded hair extensions for my wedding. The thing about keratin is that sulfate strips it which makes the life of your extensions go way down. I started using Wella Elements shampoo and conditioner to prevent that from happening.



This stuff smells like pears and leaves my hair feeling so silky smooth. This will be my go to shampoo and conditioner even after I take my extensions out in December. I used to use Lush shampoo bars which I still enjoy, especially for traveling but this is everything beat out for sure!

Emergen-C

Image
After getting strep throat and a sinus infection just a few weeks before my wedding, I decide I needed to start taking something daily to help boost my immune system. I am like a child and I can not swallow pills so I turned to Emergen-C in Strawberry Kiwi flavor.  Now, I know some people think that this is medicine and will help with your flu, it does give you your daily doses of vitamin c which will help with healing but it will not make you completely better.





I started taking one of these a day and I can honestly say I feel better. I never took a daily vitamin so I cant say I know how they actually affect your, but I will more energized, my overall health has definitely increased sense taking this. I wasn't a huge fan of the flavor at first, it is VERY strong but the more I took it the more the I became used to it. I had to start off with using almost double the water they tell you to use because I couldn't handle how strong it was, no I use one packet with 6oz of water and…

Ripple Nutritious Pea Milk

Image
Ripple sent me 3 coupons for Ripples 48oz bottles. The 3 bottles I picked up for review were their Chocolate, Vanilla, and original. Ripple is dairy-free, nut free, soy free, 100% vegan, and has 8g of plant-based protein per serving.















So I am not against regular cow milks, in fact I am a huge milk drinker. But, I've been trying to make healthier choices and a very simple switch is almond milk, soy milk, and/or ripple. I've always enjoyed almond milk so I wasn't too nervous trying Ripple. Ripple is made from peas..... how cool is that?! I was shocked how delicious all of the flavors of ripple were, the one I was kinda worried about was the original flavor, I was worried for nothing. My favorite flavor was the vanilla, it paired perfectly with my smoothies that I like to make.


The real test was the kid test! If picky kids enjoy this milk, then you know its a hit. Of course I didn't tell the kiddos what the milk was made out of, and just as I thought, they LOVED it! Now t…

Rise Gear Review

Image
Rise Gear sent me their jumper in exchange for my honest review. I have never seen anything like Rise Gear. Their products remind of those hanging shelves that you put in your closest. They luggage has built in shelves that you can organize with all your items and then when you get to where you're going you simply open the bag un-attach the hooks and hang it on a door or in the closet for easy, organized traveling.






I love how they have a helpful hints as to what to put in each of the shelves. My favorite part of the Rise Jumper is the top has a zipper area which where you put your shoes. I cant tell you how many times I've travels and my shoes flip and some dirt gets on my clean clothes and then they become dirty and it's always a bummer. Rise was thinking about everything when they made their products. The rise jumper is the perfect size! It makes the perfect carry on and you can also fit 2 of them into your checked luggage to keep everything very well organized. I am so…

Newman's Own review and giveaway

Image
