Wishery Ear Makers Giveaway & Review!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by Wishery Ear Makers for the review & giveaway free of charge.****
As a special family gift my mom and step-dad put together a weekend trip to Disneyland which we will be going on in two weeks! I am so excited because it will be just as much fun for us adults as it will be for the kids (the kids have no clue we are going, and won't know until we get there). I knew I wanted to get mouse ears for both of the kids and myself because it is fun and helps you get into the Disney spirit, but I didn't want to buy ears at Disneyland I wanted something that not everyone else there will be wearing. After a bit of poking around finding some mouse ears that just didn't look that appealing I found Wishery Ear Makers who offers a number of adorable and affordable headband mouse ears.





I really like these ears for a few reasons, the first being that they are headbands and not full cap sized hats that sit on your head. During the hotter months this will help keep you cooler, they are easier to get on and for me I like the headbands feel on my head vs the hat. I also love that you can use any type of fabric you want on these ears so the possibilities are endless, if you wanted I am sure you could even get a pair of Dr. Who ears to show your love for Dr. Who and Disney! For my review I received a pair of Stitch ears and a pair of BB-8 Ears which are featured on this post.The BB-8 ears are for my daughter who loves BB-8, she enjoys running around the house dresses as Rey and playing with her little BB-8 so these ears are perfect for her and the Stitch ears are for myself because he is one of my favorite Disney characters. The Wishery Ear Makers offer a wide range of mouse ears, hair bows and pin boards featuring lots of different fabric options all at affordable prices.





The ears arrived quickly and were cushioned by tissue paper to keep them safe during shipping, Charlotte the store owner also included a cute hand written thank you note which I think is a nice touch.The original Stitch ears I spoke with the store owner about had a shinny sequin bow like the one shown on the Ariel headband but in blue, I asked her if we were able to change it to a non-sequin bow and she was more than happy to adjust it which I thought was wonderful. The headbands are pretty sturdy along with the ears which have cardboard pieces inside to keep the ears firm and standing tall. On either side of the cardboard piece you will find stuffing which gives the ears their shape and it is all covered in bright and bold fabrics that are eye catching and really capture the subject matter. In-between the ears Charlotte includes a bow that goes along with the colors of the headband, and there is a piece of felt on the inside of the band to keep your head comfortable. The band is just the right size for kids or adults, I think these fit very comfortably. While wearing these I've shaken my head around and I've waved them around a bit with my hand to see if the ears move at all and they stay in place quite nicely and over all seem like they will be long lasting. The headbands are light weight and I don't find them to be overly large which is a plus.

Prize Alert:
One lucky blog reader is going to win their choice of mouse ears up to a $25 value.

ArtWood Giveaway & Review!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by ArtWood for the review & giveaway free of charge.****
One of the things I enjoy collecting is wind-chimes, I love the way they sound and the way they look. I was recently granted the opportunity to work with a great small business called Artwood and they sent me a new piece that is different from my wind-chimes but fits in perfectly. What was it? A gorgeous handmade wood moon shaped sun catcher. I keep my favorite wind-chimes inside hung up in my kitchen to prevent them from getting damaged by the weather and the sun, this sun catcher will be joining my group of favorites. Artwood offers several different sun-catcher options made from different types of wood, in different shapes and thicknesses they also offer different crystal selections so you can pick and choose. Artwood is a family run business which consists of a husband and wife team along with their three children, just by looking at their website you can tell a lot of love and great woodsman-ship goes into make these sun-catchers, it also reflects in their friendly about me and return/refund sections. Every-time someone makes a purchase from their shop they plant a new tree.





I received a medium Spalted Beech sun-catcher which is shown above. I was highly surprised at how quickly the package arrived to me in Arizona,USA considering it shipped from Ireland I was almost impressed with how well packaged the sun-catcher was. It arrived inside of a gift box with dark blue package filler and they left the little tag on top which is connected to the sun-catcher string so you can pull it right out of the box without having to dig around for it.This sun-catcher is very well made, everything is sanded down and smoothed out to perfection and it is quite light-weight. The crystal was a lot larger than I had imagined it would be and I love it because it means there is a better chance for it to catch the sun and it will result in a larger rainbow. I didn't notice any scent to it, wood wise or chemical wise from the danish oil they use to give the sun catcher its sheen. As a bonus they can personalize the sun catcher by wood burning a quote or name into it which would make a wonderful wedding or baby shower gift. Along with their Etsy shop feel free to stop by their Website

One lucky read is going to receive their own Medium Spalted Beech sun-catcher.

Gather - Petcurean Review!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by for Petcurean the review free of charge.****

When it comes to your pets you want them to be just as healthy as you so picking out the right food is important. Petcurean has a pet food brand called Gather that is crafted from certified and organic ingredients including free-run chicken, peas and more.



I was sent a small bag of Gather cat food along with several smaller samples bags of the different dog foods they offer. Some cat and dog foods have an odd and sometimes unpleasant smell to them but this pet food actually had a pretty decent scent to it. A bit off topic but a amusing thought I had because the pet food smells fresh and almost sweet I'd say if you were in a zombie apocalypse type situation where you had nothing but pet food to eat and you had a choice between this and a competitor brand based off the smell you'd want this one.

My step-dads dog "J" has a very sensitive stomach and isn't able to eat a lot of foods or even treats without getting sick so they generally stick to one specific type of dog food but we figured we would test this out.  J loved the dog food and didn't have any negative side effects from it which was a very positive sign that the ingredients were gently on his stomach. This company has even found a way to make their bags more biodegradable by making their bags with 30% “bio-based plastic” produced from sugarcane, a sustainably-produced and renewable raw material. Gather is sold in retailers all across the US and Canada. Over all we are very satisfied with this brand.

TownleyGirl Giveaway & Review!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by TownleyGirl for the review & giveaway free of charge.****

As my daughter is getting older she is getting more interested in painting her nails, making her own headbands and lip balms. I don't want to get her regular nail polish because most have harsh chemical smells and aren't the easiest to get off so I am very thankful for a company called Townley Girl who makes kid friendly beauty products.


I love that Townley Girl provides beauty products in a number of fun Disney, Dreamworks and Emoji themes.I was recently sent a handful of products to test out and share with all of my readers. The image above shows all of the products I received in my fun review box.



Pictured above is a Tsum Tsum Ready, Set, Go! Cosmetic Set which currently isn't listed on their website. It includes a small coin purse, a lip balm key chain, lip balm jar, a lip gloss tube, a bottle of nail polish and a thing of hand sanitizer all featuring the fun and lovable Tusm Tusm characters. I am not sure why this set isn't currently listed on their website the only thing I can think of is perhaps there is printing error on the sanitizer because it says "Strawberry flavored" instead of scented so that is the only thing I can think of because otherwise this is a great set. The only product I didn't like was the pink lip balm jar because the consistency was too thick, but the cute jar can always be re-purposed. All the products in this set have nice scents. I give this set a 4 out of 5 stars due to the pink balm and I was also a little surprised the lip gloss key ring didn't come with one of the cute little Tusm Tusm characters attached at the top like their other lip gloss set they sell.

Frozen 18 pc nail polish set (Retail $14.99) - Their nail polishes don't have overly strong scents, and even if your daughter makes a mess while painting her nails this polish not only easy wipes off when wet but after it dries it peels off. The shades go along with the movie nicely and the bottles are easy to hold, I give this set 5 out of 5 stars.



Emoji Hair Brush (Retail $4.99)- This brush I did not personally test out because I own one of their other brushes that is made just like this so this specific brush I gave to a friend of mine.I like their brushes because the brush itself is sturdy and so are the bristles. The bristles are spaced far enough apart this brush helps detangle your hair without getting stuck or pulling your hair out. This brush gets a 5 out of 5 stars, it is a great brush with a fun printed design.



Trolls 6 Pack Headband Set (Retail $6.99) -These headbands can be worn in a number of different ways, you can wear each headband without a clip or you can attach a clip to the headband or you can wear just the hair clips. It comes with six headbands and six clips, I think they did a pretty good job with providing an assortment of band prints and clip styles. This set gets a 5 out of 5 stars.

Trolls Super Shine Lip Jellies (Retail $6.99) - This lip jellies set comes with five translucent lip balms in the flavors cotton candy, grape, bubble gum, lemon, and watermelon although I tested the watermelon one you can't really taste the flavoring. The balms are moisturizing and the formula isn't sticky and it isn't thick so it glides on smoothly and leaves your lips with a nice shimmer. This set gets a 4 out of 5 because the balms aren't flavored (but then again I wouldn't recommend licking or eating any kind of lip balm/lip gloss/lip stick anyways). 

PRIZE ALERT:
Two lucky winners are each going to receive a Trolls Super Shine Lip Jellies Set. 

This is open to US & Canadian Residents! Please remember if you DO NOT leave a comment on this blog post as your mandatory entry into the giveaway then all of your entries will be void.

Tat-A-Saurus Review & Discount!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by
Tat-A-Saurus for the review free of charge.****


When out in public places with a large crowd the last thing you want to think about is your child becoming lost. It is something many parents don't think will ever happen to them, but things happen and sometimes during that split few seconds you aren't paying attention your child may go look at something or stop to look at something and you keep walking not realizing they aren't right behind you. Aside from going to the security staff and having them help look for your child what is another way you can ensure you can find your child faster? If they are young and don't have a cell phone you can have them keep an emergency contact bracelet or card with them but I recently found an Etsy shop called Tat-A-Saurus that not only sells temporary tattoos but they also sell children's emergency contact temp tattoos that I think are a pretty neat idea and it is something that is always on the child so it could easily be spotted and will help your child return to you faster.

 



The emergency contact temporary tattoos feature a cartoon character along side either "If lost please call", "Peanut allergy, please call", "I am non verbal please call"  or "Egg allergy" and the phone number of your choice. For my review I wanted to go with the "If lost please call", next month we are going on a family trip to Disneyland and I thought these would be good to have even if they don't come into play it is nice to have the piece of mind. Just like with regular temporary tattoos you will want to clean the spot you will be applying the tattoo, Tat-a-saurus provides you with alcohol pads to clean the spot and remove any oils from the skin. Then simply use a damp cloth to apply the tattoo, let dry and you are good to go. You should avoid placing it in a spot where they will be washing, for example the forearm would work the best so the tattoo stays in tact.





I tested one of these temporary tattoos on my son and it went on smoothly, however he moved his arm while I was trying to remove the backing of the tattoo which made the character get a little mushed together so I ended up not taking a photo of that part of the process. The tattoo lasted until the next day and it didn't leave any residue or redness behind to indicate it was there. The emergency contact tattoos sell for $10 for a set of eight. Tat-a-saurus also sells a variety of birthday party favor tattoos, custom tattoos, pregnancy tattoos and more! Head over to see what they have to offer and if you decide to place an order you can use code LunaMoon to save 10% off any order. Please also stop by and visit their blog.

Alice Ann London Review & Giveaway!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by Alice Ann London for the review & giveaway free of charge.****
When I host birthday parties or special occasions I like to try and spice things up with cute decorations, fun foods, etc. but until recently I never really thought about putting out photo props for the guests to use and have fun taking photos with. The reason why I recently thought about photo props was when I came upon a fabulous etsy shop and I received the opportunity to work with Tina the lovely and wonderful owner of Alice Ann London a London based etsy shop that offers paper goods, gifts and home decor. For my review I received a fourteen piece Superhero party photo booth props.





What is a photo booth prop? Generally photo booth props are fun masks, quote signs, etc that are made from either paper or card stock and attached to a stick which can be used to hold the prop in front of your face during a photo. The set I received from Tina comes with a mixture of full sized masks, along with a couple half face masks, a Boom action bubble, and super hero emblems each one is bold,bright and strudy. These props are very well made and some even have a little weight to them because the card stock is stacked on top of each other to give them the effects they have and makes it to were they don't just lay flat. I feel like these props will last significantly longer than other props I've seen and you can feel the love that was put into them as they were being made. Communication with the shop owner is great, she responds quickly and is always friendly. The props were mailed all the way from the UK but arrived in a timely manner and were in perfect condition, my kids love these props. Below are some of the other products Tina makes and sells;

One lucky winner is going to win their own fourteen piece Superhero party photo booth props set.
