Carry You GIVEAWAY & Review

One of my must have items I have to have when I am out with my daughter is my Umbrella Stroller,I like it a lot better than my bigger bulky stroller,Why? Because it is easier to fit into stores,fold up,store in the car & my daughter is Happier because she is near 'All the action' the only bad thing is there are no pockets,& no basket with how small & low to the ground they are it makes it hard to take a Diaper bag along on trips to the mall,park,ect.So I was very happy to get a chance to work with a company called Carry You who sells stroller Accessories including Caddy's,Snack trays,Bags & More.

For my Review I received their Demi Milan Umbrella Stroller Organizer which has Two adult sized cup holders,A Medium Velcro pocket,& A Small quick access pocket.Normally when I go on small trips to the mall or store with my daughter & I have our Umbrella Stroller with I only take our basic needs for the short amount of time we will be out, Wallet,Cell phone,Water bottle,Sippy cup,& Keys which all fit perfect into the Demi Milan,I love the Quick access pocket because when we go for walks to the Local market for a snack or drinks I can easily access my money & cards in the first pocket,same with my Keys when I walk to check the mail at the mail boxes.The Demi Milan has proven to be very helpful to me,I enjoy that fact its easy to use,convenient & doesn't make my stroller look like it has a big bulky bag on the back,This is a huge plus for any mom with a small stroller they also offer other organizers & trays for different types of strollers.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.Products were Provided by Carry You for the Review & Giveaway****

Carry You has also agreed to give one Lucky winner a Demi Milan Umbrella Stroller Organizer of their own.

Munchie Mug GIVEAWAY & Review

I know Sundays are my 'Blog Free' day,I didn't plan to blog on Sundays but since it is my 'Catch up' day I figured why not make up for the giveaway I missed on Friday? My daughter is with her grandma so I have a few quiet hours to catch up on house work,My Store work & Internet work, so here it is:

Having a Vehicle & having a small child means having to think outside of the box when it comes to drinks & snacks in the car so that your seats/floors do not get ruined & stained.Though I know many parents say they do not let their children eat/drink in the car its hard to tell a child they can't have a sippy cup/bottle with water or juice when its really hot outside so many great companies have come up with solutions for you to use to keep your car clean & your child(ren) happy.

Recently for a review I worked with a company named Munchie Mug,who sells Spill-Resistant Snack Cup for Infants and Toddlers! in three different colors.The Features are: Secure Screw-On Top with Easy Grip Handle,Soft fabric closure for sensitive little hands,Easy to clean: Top Rack Dishwasher Safe,Great for healthy snacking: Cereals, dried fruits, crackers, etc.,Additional stay-fresh lid included for keeping snacks fresh when mug is not in use,Economically friendly: Made in the United States of America,Child friendly: Made of all FDA food grade compliant materials,Environmentally friendly: Made of 100% recyclable materials & eliminates waste created by plastic snack baggies that are used once and thrown away. Use the Munchie Mug, again, again, and again!!! I received the Munchie Mug in Blue for my daughter I used it as soon as it arrived at first my daughter wasn't sure what it was but after showing her a few times she got the hang out it,It is perfect for all sorts of different sizes snacks I have had Goldfish,Crackers,Cheetos [Popcorn & long puff],dried fruit squares & more my daughter can only take out a few at a time & when she turns it over or drops it nothing spills out she also does not know how to open it so I have no worry there.I think the Munchie Mug is perfect for little hands to hold,It can be used Indoors,Outdoors,in the car pretty much any where I love using my daughters Muchie Mug it helps my floors & family cars stay clean while she is eating.It is also easy to clean which is a plus because there are no tiny creases to clean.The fun fish pattern is also great for little kids because it keeps them happy looking at the little fish.I would love to own a one or two more with different patterns.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.Products were Provided by Munchie Mug for the Review & Giveaway****

One lucky winner will win a Munchie Mug in their choice of color [Yellow,Pink or Blue]

Jewelry Stylist GIVEAWAY & Review

Feels like a breath of fresh air haven't had time to sit down in two days,I have been absent from my blog because I have been dealing with a few issues that have popped up with my almost two year old daughter,so I haven't been home much over the last two days I will be doing late night blogging for a little while but hopefully will still be able to post everyday.

It has been a little while since I have given away any Jewelry so why not host one now? Growing up I was never a huge fan of Jewelry I am still a so-so fan of Jewelry I like it but I don't wear them often but I like having a good selection for occasions like weddings,anniversary's,holidays,ect I usually only wear the jewelry my DH gets me but I do wear other jewelry as well or a combo of the two.One of my favorite things to get though I am picky about them are necklaces some can make your neck look longer,some point out your 'girls',some go well with outfits,some are festive & so on.Recently I worked with a site called Jewelry Stylist who sells a variety of Wedding & Black Dress Approved jewelry.

For my review I received The Black and Rhinestone V drop Necklace shown above.I was very happy with the friendly Customer Service & the shipping speed of this necklace it arrived in an adorable little gift box.The necklace is gorgeous in person it is the perfect size the chain is a little long for me but that is an Easy fix,this necklace looks gorgeous with any color shirt,I like wearing it with my black V neck shirt to show off the gorgeous detailing of the necklace.The chain isn't your normal chain link it is a small 'knot' chain which isn't itchy or irritating which is a plus to everyone because who likes an Itchy neck? Jewelry Stylist has a great selection of Jewelry starting at very low affordable prices for good quality items,There are many items I am tempted to buy for myself & for family/friends I know would love them as well it would make fun & easy Christmas shopping.I didn't find anything wrong with this necklace that I did not like,though I won't be wearing it everyday because I don't want anything to happen to it so it will be worn on special occasions which happen often! I might even wear it to the next bridal show I go to.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.Products were Provided by Jewelry Stylist for the Review & Giveaway****

Jewelry Stylist has agreed to give one lucky winner their own Black and Rhinestone V drop Necklace.

FlingBins & Ecozip GIVEAWAY & Review

Everything finally feels like it is falling into place again let's hope it will stay this way,It would be nice to be stress free for a little while anyway.The Holidays are going to be headed our way soon so I have been working on some new items for my shop that will help make Christmas Shopping a little easier,But before I get too ahead of myself I wanted to let you all know I am going to be putting together a Small Halloween Shopping Guide for everyone who celebrates everything that goes Bump in the night,More information to come soon! I also have many giveaways headed your way.

Today I wanted to post a double giveaway! Why? Because they are both Eco-Friendly,School Friendly,& Party Friendly so why not make a mini bundle out of them? I want to share two great companies with you today the first is called Fling Bins & the second is called EcoZip both are Equally helpful & fun to use.

First I will share Fling Bins with you,Fling Bins are fun Reusable trash bins that are easy to store.I was sent a Recycle Bin for my review.New Flings Pop-Up Bins make trash and recycling collection easier in your home, at events, or when you're on the go. Flings start out flat for easy storing and portability, and then pop up in a flash whenever and wherever you need them. The decorative patterns are attractive for all occasions and help signal where the trash and recycling are supposed to go.I haven't had anything fancy planned for a little while now so I used my Fling Bin in my kitchen it created a lot of attention with friends & family wondering what it was,I thought it was fun & easy to set up unfortunately I don't entirely pay attention to where friends throw their trash so most ignored the Recycle sign which created one dirty trash can so I wasn't able to keep it,I wish I had placed a Trash bag in it,Though I do plan on buy more for when I go on my Family camping trips,or for birthday parties that way they are not only cute but useful as well.I had a great time testing out my FlingBin.To see a Video of how the bins work visit their Youtube

Second I would like to present you with a company called EcoZip that makes a 2 in 1 Zip block baggies,Each bag has two sections you can use the bag as one whole bag or use the two different compartments to store your things.I think these are perfect for school lunches or for organizing your craft area since you can keep certain things together in separate areas but still in the same bag.I personally use them for both but find them most helpful in my crafting work area.I have also found that they are super easy to wash out & let dry so that you can reuse them again later making them even more Eco friendly I haven't thrown a single one away yet.Both sides of the bag are perfectly sizes one being slightly larger than the other.I give the Ecozip baggies five stars out of five.The Suggested retail is $2.99 at a retail store/3.99 which isn't a horrible price for a box of them.EcoZip is Available at the following stores Stop & Shop,Hannaford,SweetBay,Duane Reade,Buehler's,Food Emporium,A&P,Pathmark,Shopko,Woodman's Sadly None of these stores are located any where near me so let's hope they start to spread to more stores soon.Ecozip uses 20% less plastic to produce the bags and the 2 in 1 technology helps you cut back on the amount of bags you use, with 3x the value. Ecozip's "Zip n Flip" technology also offers convenience and versatility to everyday storage needs by helping you separate and organize multiple items all in 1 bag
****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.Products were Provided by Fling Bins & EcoZip for the Review & Giveaway****

One Lucky winner will Receive 1 Flings Birthday Bin & 1 Flings Recycling Bin along Samples of various sized EcoZip Baggies. [Will be sent Separately]

Worry Woo's GIVEAWAY & Review

I am very excited to share today's Review & Giveaway with you as it is a post I have been waiting for.As many of you remember I hosted a giveaway & posted a Review on some wonderful childrens Stuffed Animals/Book sets called Worry Woo's which are a fun alternative to your everyday Bear & Dog stuffed animals.I am very happy to announce the New arrival in the Worry Woo family a fun & cute little monster named Fuddle. Each monster in the Worry Woo collection has a book that is all about that specific monster,& the problem they have every monster has a fear or an emotion that they over come through out the book not only is it fun for kids to read but helps them learn as well.

Fuddle is the Monster of Confusion she can never make up her mind which always leaves her sad & wandering around but in the end everything turns out. . Well you will just have to read it to find out no need to ruin a great story.I love all of the books in this series because they have wonderful water color pages,great stories,adorable characters & matching stuffed animals.I think Fuddle has been my favorite of all because she is so cute,my DH thinks she looks evil but that is only because of her eye brows I think she is perfect the way she is.The Worry Woos inspire creativity in children & help them branch out specially though teaching them how to overcome certain emotions like shyness,confusion,& More.I enjoyed working with the company & Love the work the author does I look forward to seeing more of their work available later this year,So keep your eye out for more!****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.Products were Provided by Worry Woo for the Review & Giveaway****

Worry Woo's has agreed to give one lucky Burning Moon's Inside Advice follower a Fuddle monster & book of their own.

Hip-T GIVEAWAY & Review

Before I post todays Giveaway I wanted to post a small Announcement I have decided that Sundays will be my 'Blog Free' Day I will not be posting any blog posts on Sundays,Everyone deserves at least one day off I will be using this time to catch up on emails,Make new products for my online store & most importantly spending time with my family.As most of you know I have a small online store called Burning Moon I have just posted some new items & will continue to do so through out this week I would love if you could stop by & look at them.School has just started which means the Holidays are slowly hiding around the corner,Thing are slowly going to start to get very busy between restocking my shop,Getting together Three shopping Guides here on my blog [Halloween guide,Christmas Shopping guide,& Fairy Princess Birthday Party],Planning a party,Three major holidays,& More,along with working on a special Christmas goodie bag giveaway so please forgive me if I get a little behind,I am the only one running this blog but I do my best to keep it updated everyday! Thank you for understanding I thank each & everyone of you for being amazing followers Having Sunday free gives you a day to catch up on anything you missed!

Sadly many of my friends have been greeted with the appearance of my 'Crack' I am short with Medium sized hips so its hard to find pants that fit properly so when I bend over I am a regular plumber,My shirts don't help either & I wasn't sure how to fix this problem without wearing a pair of pants that go up to my belly button so I was very happy & Excited to find a company called Hip-T who sells Crack cover uppers & scarves.

For My review I received a black Hip-T with black trimming in a Large.You can use the Hip-T either around your Hips to help cover up your bottom when you bend over or sit down,Or you can use it to cover your Bust area if you are wearing a low cut top.I have not tried it as a top but I have been wearing it a lot as a bottom cover it is very helpful & super cute even though my shirts are long enough to cover my back half while standing when I sit down or bend over my pants slide down which is always Embarrassing but now I have a solution,I wish I had a few Hip-T's while I was pregnant with my daughter.I have recommended this product to many friends who love it just as much as I do,It also helps that it is only a small section of clothing so that your not wearing a second layer under your shirt which is a huge plus for me since it gets extremely hot here.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.Products were Provided by Hip-T for the Review & Giveaway****

One Lucky Winner will win a Hip-T of choice [Single Pair Only]

TwilighterVA GIVEAWAY & Review

One of the most popular book & movies series today is Twilight, I must admit I am not a huge fan of the movies, Why? I don't think a lot of the people chosen for the roles fit the roles & I generally don't like movies based off books because of how much they change & leave out but I am a fan of the book series. I have made & seen many great Twilight Inspired jewelry sometimes if you don't want your friends to know you like the movies or series you can get some amazing twilight inspired jewelry that others won't be able to tell was Twilight inspired.

I recently had a chance to work with a small Etsy Shop owner who makes wonderful Twilight inspired jewelry,But don't think its only twilight jewelry she makes other jewelry as well inspired by some of your favorite movies including Harry Potter,Her shop name is TwilighterVA.For my review I received one of her gorgeous Leather Lace Bracelets in Fire Element [Seen Above] which is also available in MANY other color stores when It first caught my eye I knew it was for me.The making/shipping process was very fast I was happy to see it arrive in a very short amount of time.The bracelet fits a little loose but that is a good thing for me because I don't have to take it off when I do the dishes I can just slide it up my arm a little bit without dealing with the hassle of taking it on/off,the only small problem I had was I like to sleep with my jewelry on but the bracelet kept breaking off [The clasp would break off the bracelet] but I make Jewelry myself so I was able to fix it to how I like my clasps so now I do not have the issue of it coming off in my sleep.The stone looks gorgeous I like how it looks in both the shade & the sun light each different lighting setting gives the stone different colors it ranges from all red,to red blue to purple & more.I like the sort of Celtic feel the bracelet gives off it slightly matches my Engagement ring.The leather straps are the perfect size they aren't so small they will break & not huge so it doesn't look like a mens bracelet.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.Products were Provided by TwilighterVA for the Review & Giveaway****

TwilighterVA has agreed to give one Lucky winner a $25 gift certificate to her Etsy Store to buy something that catches your interests.

BONUS: If you decide to purchase from this Etsy Shop after seeing my blog post if you mention Me or my Blog during checkout you will get 10% off refunded Via Paypal.

GIVEAWAY IS NOW OVER TwilighterVA Winner -#406 They call me Cee.

Mountain Mama's Kitchen GIVEAWAY & Review

One of my favorite things to have though I only use them on occasion now are Candles not only do they provide a nice lighting for any room but most give off amazing smells.Unless you already know what a candle smells like it is hard to decide weather to buy candles online.I think that is half the fun if your not familiar with the scent but end up loving it,it was well worth the buy even if its not the best scent in the world you will still have extra candles in case of a power outage.

I recently had a chance to work with a wonderful company on for a review & giveaway here on my blog,The company I worked with is called Mountain Mama's Kitchen Co. Their logo is a great vintage house wife.For my review I received a 'The Earth Laughs In Flowers" I am not sure of the size because it doesn't say but I am going to say its a fairly large Tin candle.I love the fact that this candle has two wicks I like two wicks better because it helps bring out the scent more & helps bring more light into the home.The wax in the candle slowly evaporates when you burn it & once the wick is out the candle returns back to how it looked before you burnt it [Besides the chard wicks],The scent of the candle is wonderful it has a nice calming flowery aroma with a hint of jasmine [This is what it smells like to me but may very from others],My DH thinks it smells like an old lady but what does he know about candles? You only need a small amount of burning time with these candles it gives off a pretty decent aroma with how big the candle is It made my whole house smell wonderful & my DH could smell it even before he walked into our front door.I really enjoyed the candle I received from Mountain Mama's Kitchen Co. & Use it on special occasions when people are supposed to be coming over.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Body Mind Time Review

When of my new favorite activities is Yoga which I just started a few months ago,I was just doing DVD'S on my normal carpet in my living room but now I have acquired a mat & other Yoga gear.I have a yoga mat that can be machine washed but after thinking about it what If I don't want to wash it every time it got dirty it would use lots of water to wash it since I would have to put it in by itself it would be a waste so I was happy to find a Yoga Mat spray that cleans Yoga Mats.

I recently had a chance to work with a company called Body Mind Time, For my review I received a Yoga cleaning mat spray,A room mist spray in Calm [Lavender] & a Small Hot/Cold eye pillow.I want to first start off by saying I Love the Hot/Cold pack it is the perfect size & the material feels wonderful & the best part of all is that it isn't scented which is a big plus for me,I also like the Room mist at first I didn't think I would like it because it is lavender but to myself & everyone who has come into my home the mist smells like lemons which I think is great is a nice smell but not over powering only a few sprays & the whole room smells good.The Mat Sanitizing spray works well & fits into a gym bag perfect.I had a great time working with this company & look forward to ordering from them when I run out.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

I recently had an amazing chance to work with a company called Herbal Hugs,Just hearing the name along helps me feel a little more relaxed & reminds me I need to start with my Yoga again.For my review I received a Herbal Hug Body Packs,Body Packs are 7"x8" fleece bags filled with the special blend of grain and herbs. The content of the pack flows to comfortably fit the contours of your body. No bumpy lumpy bags, no harsh cotton or other printed fabrics.Mine was scented in Rose & Chamomile & was red.The bag is the perfect size for a sore area on your back,chest,arm,or leg & fits nicely into the microwave or your freezer the scent is nice as well.The Body packs help relieve muscle pain & tension great for using after a long day on your feet or sitting in a office chair.I have recently given this to my Grandmother for her knee because her arthritis & she has been loving it she has informed me that she uses it everyday for various reasons,I had a great time trying out this products.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Jo!eshop Review

Lately I have been trying to figure out some helpful products that I can add to my Kitchen Equipment for when I cook but have been at a loss of items that I could get until I ran across a site called Jo!eshop that sells all sorts of fun & Unique kitchen items.It was so hard not wanting to get one of everything while I was at their site.

For my review I received a Monster Fun Pops 4-piece Set & A Tomato Fresh Pod,I put the Monster pop maker to work right away because my Toddler loves pop sickles which kid doesn't? I was very happy to find that the pop sickles were done right after dinner time so she was able to have a pop sickle for dessert,I think they turned out great I usually have issues with pop sickles molds but these worked perfect the top was a little hard to pop off but that is because they are still new,The monsters of the base are super cute & I like the shape of it because the pop sickle wont run all over my daughters hands creating a nasty mess to clean up.The pop sickle makers are easy to clean & fun to use.I also enjoyed the tomato saver because we don't eat a ton of tomatoes at once I usually only make half of one with what ever mean I am cooking then stick the other half back in the fridge but they always went bad even after just a day,I have used this & kept a tomato [Cut in half] inside of this tomato saver for the last two days it still looks fresh,smells fresh,& tastes amazing so I say Yes that these do work,I plan on trying it with other things such as small onions since it is basically just to keep the item fresh until you need it again.I hope to one day own some of the other wonderful items they sell on their website please feel free to check them out..****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Feel Goodz Review

As you get older you start to realize that you do more thing now than you did when you were a kid fashion wise,For how ever many years you said you would never tuck your shirt in,Wear a base ball cap,wear sweats out to the store one day you happen to catch yourself doing just that & wonder when it changed.Up until about a year or so ago I would never get caught dead wearing sandals I would wear slip ons where ever I went even to the beach until one day I realized I had been wearing flip flips for an entire week straight Now I hardly go any days without wearing them & wonder why it changed.I know the main reason why is because now that I am older I don't care what others think of my feet how many people actually stare at peoples feet when walking down the street? plus It helps me keep cool. I have been through many flop 'blow outs' in the last year & have tested out many brands never truly happy with the flip flop which ultimately was a flop [Cheesy Pun intended].

[Twilight Pictured Above]

I was excited to receive a chance to work with a company called Feel Goodz,who makes very comfy sandals/flip flops.For my review I received a pair of their Night Flip Flops [All Black] I had to try them out right away when they got here & I have to tell you they are amazing my DH likes wearing them as well although his foot is a little too big for the flip flop.I have worn my Feel Goodz flip flops out almost every single day since I have had them [Unless I am driving],They are comfortable & have a great grip for my foot so it doesn't slide all over or make a horrible flop sound when I walk.Their flip flops come in a variety of colors,& when you order a pair they come in a eco friendly Reusable bag [Win this bag in this months goodie bag giveaway],Some of the best point about their shoes are: 100% eco-friendly natural latex rubber, highly compressed for pillow-soft comfort,All-natural, non-toxic dye,Made for everyday relaxation: the pool, the beach, the park, the casual stroll, the apartment/house, the spa, the yoga studio,Strap will stretch to conform to your feet.They are $25 a pair which is way more than I would pay for a pair of flip flops but so far my Feel Goodz flip flops have been the best pair I have owned so I would say though the price is a little steep the flip flops are worth it.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Costume Super Center Review

Most of the time when you think of dress up costumes you think about Halloween but that isn't always the case,sometimes Adults like to dress up for fun,For events such as LARP,The Ren. festival & the Comicon so costumes are a popular buy all year long while buying online your not 100% guaranteed the costumes will be the best quality or fit your correctly so Always remember to double check the size & read the reviews they will be helpful when it comes to who to buy your costume from this Halloween or for any other occasion that might call for a costume.I recently received the chance to work with a company called Costume Super Center

For my review I received the Corrupt Cop Costume Why did I pick this outfit? I choose this out fit because though it is slightly revealing & a little 'Sexy' it is not over the top with body parts hanging out,& everything exposed,I like showing off for my DH but I also like to keep everything in my own Comfort zone.When the Costume arrived I was very excited to take it out of its package & examine it,The costume came with: Cop dress w/ pop on Necklace[Can attach to dress if you want it to],A cop hat,An evidence bag,A small baggie,A fake syringe [No needle] & a Fake razor blade necklace.The outfit looks great & fits really well the neck piece bugged me a little but I easily took it off,I know it is impossible but I wish that you could choose the size hat you need for the outfit I had to order a 1X in the dress because I have a rather large chest,The hat that came with it was way too large when I put it on it covered my eyes Though I didn't like the hat much to begin with the materials felt cheap.The little accessories that came with the outfit were wonderful other wise everything was well made & super cute.The prices are pretty decent as well compared to other costume sites,they also have a nice selection of costumes for Adults as well as Children.All of their Costumes are at low prices They also sell Sexy costumes & Many regular Womens costumes .What do you plan on going as for Halloween this year? [That is if you celebrate the Holiday].**This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Gourmet Body Treats Review

Now that more & more Eco friendly items are becoming available to everyday people It is easier to test them out to find your likes & your dislikes,Since it is healthier & a better choice for the Environment I like testing out Eco Friendly items to use Beauty item wise (& Home Wise) Recently I worked with a company called Gourmet Body Treats on a review of their site.Some key points I noticed right away that I like about their site & their company are: Their packaging is selected to incorporate the highest recyclable content from safe and renewable sources with minimum environmental impact.They reuse packing and shipping materials they have received rather than generate new waste. They encourage you to please reuse or recycle their packaging materials as well as our product containers.

For my review I received a: Glossy Lip Plumper,Whipped Mouse Blush [WIN this in Next months goodie bag hosted by Me!],Chamomile Cleansing cream & a Chocolate Facial Mask.The first thing I noted right away when I opened my package was the Chocolate Facial Mask it has Real Coco powder & Organic Cane Sugar in it I was hesitant to try it at first because I was always told that Coco Makes you break out though after talking with a few family members I decided to give it a try,I must say it was an interesting feeling & Experience smelling like I had just taken a tub of Frosting & smeared it on my face I had no troubles getting it off once the mask was dry it made my skin feel fresh & it smelled nice as well.My favorite out of the items I have tested is by far the Glossy Lip Plumper it has a slight Hint of mint though since there is no mint in it I think it is the Organic Cinnamon Essential oil,Other than a light mint smell there is no smell to it,& There is no real taste either which I think is perfect because I lick my lips a lot,The Glossy Lip Plumper glides on smooth & even you only need one application of it,& it makes your lips look great,I plan on buying more once I run out.The only product I tested that I have to admit that I do not like is the Chamomile Cleansing cream,Why? I am picky about the scent & feel of the products that go on my face when using this it smelt like how my bathroom did when I used to dye my hair crazy colors which is a no go for me since it is on my face,Not everyone has the same opinion as I do & I know there are many who do enjoy this product I love the rest of their line but have passed the Chamomile Cleansing cream onto a friend who will use it.I did not get a chance to use the Whipped Mouse Blush because of the simple fact I have way too much blush that won't be used for a long time anyways So I am including it in Next months Goodie bag giveaway so keep your eyes open.I had a great time working with this company & would enjoy working with them again in the future.**This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Bodycology Review

Yesterday was a very busy day around here,My little brother just started school again,I had to help my grandmother with a flat tire on her car,Ran some errands & had a BBQ with a bunch of friends as many of you know I am currently car hunting but haven't had any luck I am thinking of trying out a local car auction.

After a long busy day after my daughter goes to sleep I like to relax in a nice hot bubble bath when I have a chance,but what is a bubble bath if you don't have great smelling bubbles,body wash & other beauty items to go along with it? I don't get to take nice baths as often as I would like but for when I do I always keep a basket of body washes,scrubs,bubble bath,soaps & more in my bathroom for when the opportunity strikes,Though I am very picky about the scents i use though I am always up for trying something new I recently received a chance to work with a company called Bodycology I LOVE LOVE LOVE bath items I can't begin to explain how many bath items I use every year,I have not had the chance to try many Bodycology items so I was very happy to receive this chance to work with them,For my review I received a Lotion & spray in Midnight Garden & A body wash.The Midnight Garden set is a mixture of Violets,Lavender & Rose mingled together to be totally honest I am not normally a Huge fan of Lavender I try to avoid items with the scent but the Midnight Garden is AMAZING I absolutely love it,It is right up there with my all time favorite Jap. Cherry Blossom I plan on buying more once mine runs out I have been using my lotion on my hands once to twice everyday it is nice & creamy but doesn't make your hands feel greasy or grimy,A little bit goes a long ways I used to hate the feel of lotion on my hands but now I use it all the time.The Midnight Garden spray I tend to use often but still not as often as the perfume my DH bought me as a gift,The body wash is amazing as well my DH likes the way it makes my skin smell & I can also use it on my face without my face feeling stretched back,dry,or irritated which is nice because it really is a full body wash & moisturizer.If you haven't tried Bodycology I would suggest doing so I plan on trying more of their line.**This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Xtremebubbles Review

School is just starting but that doesn't mean there isn't enough time to squeeze in some last minute fun such as a Pincic at the park,A trip to the zoo,or going to a water park.One of my favorite things to do when the weather is nice enough to allow for it is to take my daughter to the Park I always bring fun things for us to play with while we are there,Sand toys,Small squirt guns,& Lots of bubble toys because my daughter loves running around catching bubbles,But not all Bubbles are the same so sometimes I am disappointing when a bubble brand doesn't work properly.

I recently had a chance to work with a company called Xtremebubbles & With a name like that I could not refuse plus what will it hurt to test out a new bubble company? They might turn out to be a new favorite.For my Review I received a Giant bubble maker kit,the kit comes with a giant bubble wand & a 4oz bag of Bubble solution.The bubble solution is easy it make all you need to do is add 1 quart of tap water to the solution & mix gently then your bubbles are all ready to go.The bubble wand consists of two small plastic 'wands' with a string between them to make the bubbles with,The only thing you need to do is dip the stick into the bubble solution & then go.They have simple instructions on the side or you can use a simple bubble but you can also just go & work with it how you please I do not suggest using this in doors all bubbles are always messy & will get on your floors plus being out side will give the bubble more time to float & everyone around you will be able to see it as well.I had a great time playing with this kit at the BBQ I had yesterday the little kids all enjoyed it as did the adults.Their prices are moderate as well.**This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Girl Extraordinare Review

The end of the year always seems to be the Busiest time of the year for Weddings to Held,many couples love the Fall & Winter seasons for both indoor & outdoor weddings the weather is nice,the sun isn't too bright,sometimes their is a light breeze & if your lucky while having an indoor winter wedding it might snow lightly outside letting your guest see an amazing views.Besides all of the planning one of the things the bride can actually look forward to is all of the fun Accessories for not only herself but her bridesmaids as well,there are Many companies who offer customizable items for weddings,parties & more.

I recently had a chance to work with a company called Girl Extraordinaire,For my Review I received a White tank top that says "Bride",A Tote bag that says "Mrs. Holt,A white Jacket that says "Future Mrs. Holt" because my DH & I aren't officially married yet & Two pins to place onto my jacket,shirt or tote it I want.I think the jacket is super cute I love the font they picked for the writing on the lower back,I also think it is adorable that the zipper pull is a small diamond ring which matches one of the Pins you can place onto the tote bag,The only thing I noticed about the hoodie is that it says its a Large but it looks like a small or medium it fits though it is slightly tight in the chest area the jacket is a nice material it is light & soft to the touch the hood is a good size as well.The tote bag is a great size for carrying all of the things you will need for your wedding day,Girls party or just to carry your things with you while you shop it also has a pocket on it which is where the "Mrs. Holt" is printed I like the fact the most of the tote is a plain tan color that you can decorate as you please with patches,pins,buttons or marker you could even have all of the girls in your wedding party sign you a small note on your bag.The white tank top is also adorable the fabric feels great just like the jacket & it fits well perfect to wear under the matching jacket.I plan on using the jacket & tote bag at the Next Wedding Expo I go to in January of 2011. But don't think they sell only bridal items they also sell mom items,baby items,& More please stop by their site & check them out,They are easy & fun to work with very professional.**This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Crane Review

Starting this Monday most schools will be back in session not only does that mean your children will be at school for six hours a day again but it means that Winter will slowly be approaching as well which is Always accompanies by cold & flu season,If you have a child you know that colds & the flu are hard to escape but there are lots of great ways to help fight off colds & help prevent them in your home.The one issue I always Hate with cold season is a stuffed up nose along with a sore throat I always have a hard time getting my nose to become un stuffed,I have tried a VICK's machine though it helped my nose it made my throat dried out & sore.

I recently had a chance to work with a company called Crane-Usa who makes Cool Mist Humidifiers they come in Normal shapes for adults or you can get cute animal shapes to stick in your childs room for when they are sick.For my review I received the Pig Cool Mist Humidifier I was happy with the size when I took it out of the box it is a great size for fitting into a small space but large enough to hold two gallons of water.After about twenty minutes of the Cool Mist Humidifier being on I could tell a big difference in the air in my living room,It was almost as if I was standing outside while there was a light rain you could almost smell the water in the air it was a nice feeling compared to the hot steam that comes from my VICK's machine.In the morning when I woke up my nose was clear,My throat felt great & I didn't feel sick anymore after two nights of using this it helped my cold vanish I will be using my Pig Cool Mist Humidifier every time someone in my house is sick or stuffed up.The Pig Cool Mist Humidifier is easy to use & easy to clean up once you are done using it,I also like that it is easy to store in my closet or under my bathroom sink.They offer many other designs & animals besides the Pig please feel free to visit their site & check out all their designs.**This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Erno Laszlo GIVEAWAY & Review

I usually like to keep it to one Review post & One review/giveaway post a day but I am trying to catch up on some posts from the week when I was very busy with home Issues,Please bear with me while this happens! Don't forget if you comment on the Reviews you get extra entries into my giveaways so that is a Plus! This week I have been super busy with Car hunting,Helping my DH look for a new job & family issues so I am pretty far behind on blog work but I will be catching up on things this weekend. I have extended a few giveaways[All giveaways that were ending on the 11th have been extended to the 18th] to give everyone more time to enter while I catch up on things around my blog. Thank You!

Since we are on the subject of skin care why not have a giveaway for One of you to win a great skin care item as well? There are literally Hundreds of skin creams,cosmetic companies,& skin care items on the market today but with the prices of some of the products sometimes it is safe to stick with the products you know best unless you have Skin issues such as Dryness,Acne,& more which can't always be taken care of by Store bought items.I recently had a chance to work with a great company called Erno Laszlo who sells a number of skin care products.I like how helpful their website is because not only does it put products into categories depending on your skin type but if you don't know what your skin type is they have a test you can take & according to your answers it will tell you what skin type you have & which products would be best to fix the problems you are having. I personally have some issues with a little dryness on my nose other wise I don't have any skin care issues,For my review I was sent a Total skin revitalizer,Here is a little information from their site "Total Skin Revitalizer is a super-hydrating face serum. Acting like a microscopic sponge, it attracts moisture and binds it to the deepest cell layers. Total Skin Revitalizer, as it is known by its die-hard fans, features sodium hyaluronate and panthenol, which plump up thirsty skin to soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles."I like the container it comes in because it is a small pump bottle which makes it easy to use even when your hands are wet,I like using this product at night after I wash my face,With the Total Skin Revitalizer a little goes a long ways you only need one to two pumps to cover your whole face.I like the fact that the smell of the Total Skin Revitalizer is very light I normally don't like using lotions or moisturizers on my face because they either make my skin feel dried out or it has a smell I can't stand.I have noticed a difference in my face with this product & it has become one of my favorite beauty products which has been added to my basket with my most used products I use almost daily.The price for a 1OZ bottle is a little expensive for my taste ($75 a bottle) but in my opinion this product would be worth it because it does work the only problem would be coming up with the extra money.I had a great time working with this company.**This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

ITCosmetics Review

Let's face it as we get older our bodies start to chance in ways we don't want it to & ways we don't want others to notice such as Crow lines,Worry Lines,Wrinkles,Dark under eye circles,& Much more with more & more beauty products coming out that help fight against some of these issues we may be able to avoid them all together as we grow older.

I recently had a chance to work with a company called ITCosmetics,for my review I received a tube of Bye Bye Under Eye Cream which helps cover dark under eye circles while also helping to visibly lift & firm the skin around your eye.I never really have a problem with under eye circles unless I only get 2-3 hours of sleep a night so I had my mother test out this product.The Bye Bye Under Eye Cream covers up & blends in well it covers the dark circles & lines while blending in with the face so that you can't tell the person is wearing any makeup that is not only hiding the spots they want to hide but also helping firm the skin.I have noticed a small chance in the color around my mothers eyes but not largely enough that family or her friends would notice so we will continue to monitor her eyes to see if there is any chance.Here is a little information on the Bye Bye Under Eye from their website "Working hand in hand with the leading plastic surgeons in Brazil, It Cosmetics introduces Bye Bye Under Eye, a full coverage, highly pigmented concealer utilizing truly innovative technology and ingredients – giving women the power to finally say “bye bye” to those stubborn under-eye issues!Bye Bye Under Eye offers a waterproof, yet moisturizing formula that will stay put no matter what.? The truly innovative formula contains high concentrations of Vitamins K, A, C, E and Collagen - clinically proven to reduce under eye puffiness and discoloration while strengthening the delicate skin of the under eye area." I do think that this is a good product & that you might be able to see better results in the long run,I think the price is a bit pricey at $25 a Tube but probably worth spending if your worried about dark circles,lines or the skin around your eyes.**This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

No Cry Potty Book Review

Part of being a Parent means preparing for everything that comes with having a child Cuts,Scraps,Bruises,Tantrums,Teething,Colds,& more but one of the things I was not looking forward to as my Daughter got older was Potty Training.My daughter is almost Two years old,For a bit while she was 10 months old she was using her potty chair frequently but all of a sudden on day was terribly frightened of using her potty [Her potty sang a song when she did her business but it never bothered her before] shortly after she would cry & scream when ever she was placed onto the potty,We recently started trying to potty train her again only this time using the 'Grown up' potty she has used it a few times though is more interested in putting the toilet paper in the toilet being a First Time parent with hardly any other friends that are parents I wasn't sure if this was normal.

Recently for a review I worked with Elizabeth Pantley who has written many helpful guides & books for first time parents.For my review I received the No Cry Potty Book which is a book that runs down all the basics of potty training,signs your child is ready or not ready to train,& has a number of FAQ from parents wondering about the same Potty Training Issues.When the book arrived I was very happy to start reading the book to see what Advice & helpful tips it can offer my DH & myself for the up coming potty training 'battle', I was very surprised & impressed that she signed a small note in the book before she sent it.One of my favorite things about this book is not only does she have helpful information from when she trained all four of her children but a group of potty training children & parents also let them selves be part of the research for the book.I have found many helpful tips in this book including how to make it less of a traumatic experience for the child & to help the relax while using the big potty,I also found some information that I hope my daughter never tried such as trying to touch her 'Business' but the book also offers information on that as well.I love all the information this book holds including a list of good & bad foods for babys digestive system & much more this is a read I suggest to any new parents about to potty train.At only $13 USA [$17 Canada,$8.99 UK] a book with as much information is in it I think the price is perfect.Her website offers Advice,Links & More for you to use as you please,feel free to check out the website.**This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Theregear GIVEAWAY & Review

One of the most important things that makes a work out effective is the Equipment you use, Sometimes the cheap workout gear they sell at good wills,or the dollar store just wont cut it when it comes to helping you lose weight,But how do you know what gear to start off with? A lot of online sites will help you figure out the best gear for you & the exact size or weight of that item you should get.

I received an amazing chance to work with a company called Theragear who sells Work out Gear & Equipment.For my review I received a Swiss Exercise ball, I was happy to find that they have a great shipping speed thought I was disappointed to find out that the Swiss Exercise ball does not come with a pump for you to inflate your ball,but after talking with the company who also helped me pick out the correct ball size for my Height I got everything figured out & received a pump for my Swiss Exercise Ball.Pumping up the ball was easy & took less than ten minutes which I was very happy about,The ball was very stiff at first but after three house become soft & easy to use.The ball really is the perfect size for my height because I can actually get a good work out done without falling off or hurting my back,My toddler also likes rolling it around & enjoys when I put her butt on it to bounce her up & down on the ball,The ball stands slightly shorter than my almost Two year old daughter.I am very happy with this product & have told many of my friends looking for similar items about this site.They have a wide range of work out gear to pick from as well as some decent prices through out their site.Some of their Balls are on sale for just $10. **This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Lucky Puppy Review

If you have been following my blog for a while you know that I love finding new clothing that is comfortable & soft for my daughter to wear that is unique & fun for her to wear Now that she is getting older she likes being able to pick out her own shirts when I give her the option of shirts to wear for the day.When ever a site asks me to review a clothing item for my daughter I can't refuse she is getting to the age where she loves putting her shoes on,she loves dressing up,wearing fake jewelry the works.

Recently I worked with a great little online company called Lucky Puppy,Currently, Lucky Puppy is proud to be partnering with Animal Haven Shelter in NYC. Animal Haven recently launched it's Caring Kids program which introduces children and teens to basic animal care and informs them about existing issues in animal welfare. In the past, the brand has partnered with Much Love Animal Rescue and Paws and Learn Humane Education Center, two outstanding foundations; one dedicated to saving the lives of dogs by helping them find proper homes, the other through education in schools[Information used from their Site] ,for my Review I received a Wings Puppy Shirt for my daughter.When the shirt arrived I was impressed by how soft it was,it is a mix of Grey/White it is a bit see through but I like the way it looks none the less,The shirt fits my daughter perfect its not too large & not too small either she will be able to fit in it for at least another year because it stretches & I ordered it slightly bigger so that she could wear it for a longer amount of time.The puppy on the shirt is adorable,I would wear the same one on an Adult shirt,I love the fact that there is no fabric tag on the shirt so it wont irritate my daughters neck while she wears it that is a plus in my opinion.They carry items for everyone including mom & dad their site is super cute & worth checking into.15% Of their profits go towards helping local shelters.**This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Green Party Goods Review

As we all know you should never trust everything you read in an article or hear on TV because a good percentage of the time it is a fib, Recently I read an article on Yahoo that was talking about Food 'Fads' that are going out of style one of the things that was mentioned as becoming non popular are cupcakes reading the article made me laugh because I beg to differ Cupcakes to me seem to be becoming bigger than they used to be,It used to be a pain to make tons of cupcakes for parties,school activities ect but now with all the fun cupcake wraps,decorations,stands & more it makes it easier to make lots of cupcakes at once I have noticed a Huge amount of people using cupcake stands at birthday parties & even substituting their wedding cake for cupcakes instead which is what I will also be doing for my own wedding it saves a lot of hassle & waiting in line for your slice of cake to be cut then put onto a plate.

Recently for a review I had a chance to work with a great company called Green Party Goods on a review.For my Review I received a Square cupcake stand which stands 20 inches tall.When I received the cupcake stand I was very happy to find easy instructions on how to put the stand together,It also came in a perfect storage box that can slip right into my closet,I haven't had a chance to actually use the cupcake stand but I plan on using this stand at my Daughters 2nd Birthday in December & I plan on using this at my Wedding in place of a wedding cake,This square stand holds up to 125 regular sized cupcakes.I love the idea of a cupcake stand because you can literally use any color cupcake wrapper & mix colors,create designs,& place them how ever you would like.Since this is easy to assemble & take apart it is easy to store then reuse when you need it very eco friendly.I also plan on buying some of the cupcake decorations from Green Party Goods as my daughters birthday becomes closer they have a great selection & amazing prices.**This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Fairy Wonderful GIVEAWAY & Review

Almost every child loves playing dress up, They love being Fairies,Pirates,Princesses,Princesses,Cowboys & everything in between so why should they settle for dollar store items that are going to fall apart after two uses? I am always looking for fun affordable items for my daughter to use while playing dress up.

Recently I worked with a small company called Fairy Wonderful on a review & a giveaway,their have a wonderful selection of items such as wings,wands,head bands,matching bows & more.For my review I received the Monarch butterfly wings with matching Bow & head band.The box was quite smashed up when it arrived so I was worried that the wings were smashed but I was happy to see they were in perfect condition.I can't tell you how much I love these wings they are not your average wings with the crappy stretch string that you place their arms through each pair of wings has four small ribbons that you can use to tie around your child so they remain comfortable even while wearing the wings,The head band is the perfect size for a toddler head the head band is soft & fuzzy with no sharp metals or glue chunks sticking out.The matching bow is adorable as well it is a big orange bow that takes up half of my daughters head,My daughter loves wearing her wings & her head band while running around the house though I don't let her play with the wings too often yet because I don't want her to ruin them.Fairy Wonderful has great shipping speed,& wonderful customer service along with their amazing product line,They are currently working on new Halloween items for the Holiday season.Please feel free to visit their site. They also have Tutu's & Wings in Adult sizes as well! **This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Susan Brown's Baby Review

Most pregnant women dread the thought of getting Stretch marks if You prepare & take care of your skin before you gain the baby belly & continue to do so both during the whole nine months & after you give birth then you can avoid getting those nasty little purple lines all over your skin.Sadly I didn't think I would get any but ended up with four tiny stretch marks on each side of my belly,Though after using a product called Scartini they are fading away but still visible so I have been trying out different stretch mark creams,lotions ect to find which work best while I try these products I will post them here so others with the same problem may be able to find a solution as well.

Recently I worked with a company called Susan Browns Baby,Not only do I think the site is super adorable but they also have Five locations here in Arizona where they sell their supplies So I can get more when I need to.For my review I received the Stretch Therapy Warming Masque here is a little info from their site '"This revolutionary masque warms and exfoliates while it hydrates with First Skin Emollient Complex, a dermatologist tested array of rich botanical moisturizers including Shea and cocoa butters. Oil Free With Dermatologist Tested First Skin™ Emollient Complex No Parabens No Animal Ingredients No Animal Testing" I think this product is great it makes my skin feel soft & smooth after I use it, the warming effect is nice for when its chilly though I don't notice a huge change in the cold/warm effect with the cream,But I do like watching the small beads change color its effective & fun to watch while it works.I think this would be a great product for anyone who is currently pregnant or wants to have another little one soon.For a special time you can Use the coupon code “BMOON” through the end of September to receive 20% off any order you place through their Online store.**This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Baby Prodigy Review

It is important to all parents to provide their children with fun toys & DVD's that will help their children learn along the way but how do you decide if something is helpful & worth the money? There are a number of ways from talking to friends who have used the same DVD or reading reviews on the products which you can find good & bad reviews on virtually every product out there.One of the number one products out there today is Learning DVD's for Babies/Toddlers/Children but not every video is the best for learning use,I am like most parents I want my Daughter to be able to watch something fun while learning while watching it but I am very weary about spending $20 on a DVD if I do not know weather it is worth the money or not.

I recently received a chance to work with a Company called Baby Prodigy who is slowly but surely becoming a commonly heard name,Each of their DVD covers are cute & baby friendly with bright colored shapes,animals & babies.For my Review I received two DVD's 30 Minutes to a quiet baby & Baby's first words. To me the videos felt like they were for new borns - 12 months so my daughter wasn't very entertained by them so I gave them to my friend who had a little boy four months ago we watched them while at her house & her son seemed very happy sitting in his bumbo while watching the video,each video is very bright,friendly & happy.The Babies first words is very nice because they show the picture of the object the word on the screen & they say the word for the child to hear.Baby Prodigy not only sells DVD's but they sell CD's,& Toys for each stage of development.I do think this is a good video for younger babies.The videos aren't short & they aren't super long either it is a decent length DVD **This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Measure Up Bowl Review

Part of losing weight means that you have to work on Portion control & watch what your eating just because you are working out doesn't always mean that it will keep the fat away.I am not one of those people who like calorie counting & I didn't like the idea of having to use a measuring cup to measure food then put it on my plate because I don't like doing dishes so why make extra? Until I found out about a Product called a Measure Up Bowl I didn't think there was a solution.

For my Review I was sent a two piece Measure Up Bowl set one large & one small.I find them easy & fun to use each bowl has lines on the inside of the bowl indicating the food amount lines 1/2 Cup,1 Cup,ect all the way up to two cups so that way when I eat cereal or pasta I can have exactly one cup without over eating I have been noticing a big difference in the help it has been providing,I really like the fact that they are glass so they wont melt when you place them into the microwave,They are also Dish washer safe.Up until recently you would only buy the Measure Up Bowls online at the Measure Up Bowl website but they are now available at Target.com & They are on Sale for 23.99 for a two piece set until the 31st of this month,Its a great value since the 2 bowl set retails for 29.99.Here is a little bit of information on the Measure Up Bowls from their site. "The Classic Measure Up Bowl is great for measuring cereals, fruits, soups, chilis, pastas, rice, salads...Anything you eat of of a bowl! The Classic features 1/2, 1, 1-1/2 and 2 cups premeasured portions on the interior of the bow. The Small Measure Up Bowl is perfect for the calorie-dense, high-fat foods that have a smaller serving size. Nuts, granola and ICE CREAM, just to name a few. The Small features 1/4, 1/2, and 3/4 cup premeasured portions on the interior of the bowl. The beautiful porcelain construction makes them compatible with almost any dish set. Microwave/dishwasher safe.". I personally love my bowls & enjoy using them they are perfect for anyone who is on a diet.**This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Tatutina Review

I know that lately I have been lagging a bit when it comes to my blog I apologize things in my life have been keeping me very busy Though I try my best to keep things posted & updated.I am happy to say as sad as it sounds I finally got over my fear of driving & got my License so we have been car hunting making it to where I can't spend much time on my blog the good thing is that I used some extra time to do a clean down of the house & spend some time with friends I haven't seen in a month or two.So I have a bit of catching up to do but plan on trying to get it done as soon as I can.

Since my daughter is getting older we normally buy her more toys for her age that help her learn & keep her entertained but many of the toys come with lots of little toys such as cooking sets,dress up sets,ect so we need places to put everything I am always on the look out for cute containers,boxes,& more to keep my daughters toys in I was very happy to come past a site called Tatutina That makes customizable items such as storage bins,Stools,& More.For my Review I was sent a Jungle Animal Nylon Tote with my daughters name on it.It measures 16" x 16" x 13" which is the perfect size I can keep almost all of my Daughters stuffed animals in the Jungle Animal Nylon Tote I Received.For being hand painted the Tote arrived in a very reasonable amount of time,The tote can be folded easily if you need to carry it or store it for a little while it folds down to the perfect size,The tote is a lot bigger than I was expecting my daughter loves to sit in it with her stuffed animals.Their items are super cute they offer something for everyone Boy,Girls & even Animals.You can see a picture of the tote I received below,they also offer butterflies,Dino's,& More.The owner of Tatutina is very sweet & easy to work with I enjoyed working with this company & would buy from them for gifts for friends & family.**This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Constructive Eating GIVEAWAY & Review

Since we did a Giveaway for the Grown man in your life I wanted to host a Giveaway for the Little Man in your life [This giveaway could also be for a Girl], Now that my Daughter is older she doesn't want to use her 'Baby' spoons anymore instead she wants to use the same spoons that my DH & I use but I think they are still a little big for her to use so I have been trying to find a safe alternative that she will enjoy using,I was very happy to find a company called Constructive Eating who makes fun Construction dinner sets for kids.Here is a little information on their products [Borrowed from the Constructive Eating site] "Constructive Eating's bulldozer pusher, fork lift fork, and front loader spoon are designed with function and play value in mind. Textured, easy grip handles and detailing allow little hands to hold on tight. Even the youngest child will animate these construction machines with their true to life color, scale and shaping. Use them for every meal; each is rugged, light weight, and dishwasher safe. They are great when going out to eat, trying to extend productive eating time at the table, encouraging those not-so-favorite foods, or just for fun! "

The Plate is a fun little 'Play' zone where kids can use their Tractor Utensils,I do not have a Son [Yet!] but I see no reason why a Little girl can't have a toy car or two.At first my Daughter wasn't sure what to do with her fork & spoon since at first sight they look like a toy,Once I showed her that it was her eating utensils she happily started eating her Dinner.I also received the construction plate though it doesn't seem as popular with my daughter she doesn't quite understand it yet but she will as she gets a little bit bigger.This set can be used for a Girl or Boy the color is Yellow so there is no gender specific colors involved.I think the set is the perfect size for small children & could even be used by children up to the age of ten or so,I love the creativity behind this fun eating set even the box it arrived in had "Caution Fun Inside" which I thought was super adorable.This set would make a perfect Birthday or Christmas gift for the little boy(s) in your life or a little girl in your life who needs more excitement during their Meal time.**This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.
