Ornaments with love GIVEAWAY & Review

The ornament arrived much faster than I had expected I was excited to get our tree up so I could place it along with my daughters other ornaments in the photo above you can see if hanging in our Christmas tree.My favorite thing about this ornament besides how cute it looks, is the fact the ornament is only $11 pretty good for being customizable.

Nici's Art & Jewelry Feature



Today I wanted to share one of my Sponsors with you. I would like to introduce you to a little Etsy shop called Nici's Art & Jewelry who offers a range of very unique jewelry items. Here is a little bit about the owner Nici Laskin "I am a Silver & Goldsmith based out of Tucson,AZ at the moment everything I make is truly handmade, I do not cast & I do not make many pieces over again and again, I think the most is I have made is ten of the same item, I use mostly sterling silver & copper, everything is hypoallergenic & nickle free.Due to the fact that everything is handmade you will see some tool marks,pieces are not always perfect, but i think that just adds more character to them" I love the fact that her jewelry isn't something you will see on another person while out shopping,I have seen jewelry I own on numerous people because it was bought at a regular retail store but when I buy Handmade jewelry I love getting compliments & having people ask me where I bought it from happily knowing I just may be the only person with that specific piece of Jewelry.



Picture above is one of my favorite pieces from her shop called "Pua Aloalo (Yellow Hibiscus) Sea Turtle Pendant" The pendant is hand cut from 18 Gauge sterling silver. The pendant represents a peaceful harmony between land and sea. The Yellow Hibiscus flower is the state flower of Hawaii and has been a symbol of peace for native cultures throughout the South Pacific for centuries. Along with the Sea turtle pendant you can find a large assortment of other Pendants,Earrings,Bracelets & more by visiting her Etsy shop by clicking Nici's Art & Jewelry or by clicking one of the photos on this post.



If your looking for a Unique Christmas gift for a special loved one this year please head over & check out what Nici's Art & Jewelry has to offer you for the upcoming Holiday season.Handmade items often mean more than store bought items & usually last for many more years to come.Now that you know my favorite item from her shop,I would love to hear your opinions on what your favorite item is from her shop [You can leave it in the comment section below], All three photos above are my three top choices from her store you can visit each one by clicking the link which will take you right to that products page.Thank you for reading I hope you have enjoyed this Handmade feature.

Vamplets Review



I am always on the look out for toys that aren't your 'Ordinary' toy so when I came across a toy called Vamplets I fell in love.If Vamplets would have been around when I was a child I would have wanted to own the whole collection.



A Vamplet is a small Stuffed Vampire baby doll each are adorable in their own way for my review I received is named Count Vlad Von Gloom.Here is a description of the Vamplets from their website "Are you brave enough to become the parent of a vampire baby, like Bella and Edward in Twilight: Breaking Dawn? We are looking for suitable human parents who would DARE to adopt one of our precious Vamplets! Our "human-friendly" shop is located here at shop.vamplets.com ready for you to browse (with caution) and become familiar with all the Undead creatures that dwell in this delightfully frightful world. If you think you have what it takes to care for your own immortal infant (and show the Cullens how it's done) then we encourage you to explore the Realm of Gloomvania at www.vamplets.com! You can stop by the Town Hall and print your Vamplet's Undead Certificate, then head to the Nursery where you can MEET each of the Vamplets up-close!"



Each baby Vamplet arrives in a Small coffin box along with a Thank you note with a free Pin. I think that this baby vampire is beyond adorable,I also received a Disappearing Bottle of Blood "If your vamplet gets hungry, you’ll want the Vamplets Disappearing Bottle of Blood to settle her tummy. Filled with red “blood” and capped with a black baby bottle nipple, this mysterious snack disappears as you feed it to your Vamplet! When it’s tipped back upright, the “blood” returns." I think both the baby bottle & vamplet would make a great gift for a child who likes things out of the Ordinary I know many rocker mamas who love this product & plan on looking into it more for the Holidays. The Vamplets are well constructed I have looked this doll over & think that everything is well put together,well thought out & over all a great product. Along with Count Vlad Von Gloom there are Five other vamplets to adopt. Each vamplet cost $19.95 which I think is a great price for these fantastic babies These vamplets aren't just for Kids they are also for geeky adults! This site is worth checking out for the Holidays. I also wanted everyone to know they are having a Large giveaway on their facebook page they are giving away Lots of little Vamplets to new loving homes head over to check out their Giveaway on facebook.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Citrus Lane Review

Everyone loves surprises so I always love surprise boxes, What is better than a subscription to a website that sends out a Monthly box containing the latest & best baby products. A company called Citrus Lane With Citrus Lane, you'll get a box every month filled with cute and practical products recommended by real moms they have kits for Children up to Three years of age.



I recently received one of their last Summer fun packs for this year which contained one set of Stacking + nesting cup Bath toys,A Bumble bar,A white sun hat,A tube of sunblock & a set of Sanitizing wipes for toys,carts,ect. before receiving this package I had no idea what was going to be in it so I was very excited to get it opened. Here are my thoughts on each of the products: My daughter loves the Stacking cups she plays with them every night when taking her bath before bed the box says they are for babies 6 months+ my daughter is almost three and she still thinks they are great.I enjoy the Sanitizing wipes because I can wipe down shopping carts,Toys she drops on the ground,Swing seats at the park & more they are a handy item to have in your purse or diaper bag.I have tons of Sunscreen & Hats for my daughter so I wasn't able to use either of those but I think they are a critical product to have during the summer time to help keep your baby safe & happy, As for the Bumble bar I have tried them before & didn't like them so I let a friend of mine have it that is a fan of the Bumble Bar. I enjoy the fact that the box comes with a sheet with information & retail price of each item you get in your box so you know exactly what you have received.



Above is a photo of the package I received from Citrus Lane.If I would have known about these when my daughter was born I would have loved a subscription as a baby shower gift. Boxes are $25 a month but they contain $30-$50 worth of products so I think they are worth the buy if you know anyone having a baby soon these boxes are worth checking out. Here is a little description from their website to describe their boxes "We think of our monthly boxes as care packages for parents! With a subscription to Citrus Lane, you'll receive a monthly box filled with 4-5 healthy and delightful baby products recommended and reviewed by real moms. The goodies inside will be tailored to the age of your child. We're dedicated to helping parents discover the best baby products on the market. Sometimes it's an undiscovered gem that catches our eye. Other times, it's a tried-and-true parent favorite. Either way, we're looking for that certain something - a wow-factor that makes us say, "Ah-ha! Now this is something every parent should know about!" Want a Discount code for half off your first months box? Use the code CITRUSHALF [Click on the link to have it automatically sign you up with the Code], which is good for half off your first box when you sign up for a monthly subscription (so you're getting your first box for just $12.50). ****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

My Mega Bloks MommyParty

Today was a fun & exciting day I hosted my first MommyParty at my home. I was recently selected to host a MommyParty sponsored by Mega Bloks aimed at ages 1+ I received a party kit that included a Large Tubtown Farm for the children to play with along with 10 small back packs filled with Mega bloks for each child to take home there were five Jungle friends Bloks & five Garden friends bloks which can be seen below.






For the party I spent the morning baking cupcakes & getting the party ready we also had juice boxes & pizza for the children, I can tell you it was tough trying to get my toddler to stay away from all the lego packs. While the children ate before they began playing the mothers & I made a decision on how we would let each child play with their pack of bloks without getting bloks messed up & to prevent fighting so we all agreed each child would sit in different spots in the living room & my daughters room so that they could play with their bloks & so we could get pictures some of the bloks did end up in the bigger bloks container but we sorted everything out before the children left. Each mother was asked if it was okay to photograph their child for pictures to provide for the blog post & to the sponsor company some mothers agreed others would like to stay anonymous so respecting their wishes only photos of the Approved mothers children will be shown.My daughters cousin arrived late to the party for a sleep over so she was wearing her Pj's while playing with the bloks it was quite cute.



All of the children who attended the party were 5 years of age & Under all of the children played well together did a great job at sharing and over all seemed to be really enjoying their time playing.The children spent a good deal of the party playing with the bloks then decided to play else where with toys so the bloks were put away until the children decided to play with the bloks again,All of the children were very happy to learn that they got to take their Mega Blok back packs home. The party was a blast none of the children have owned Mega Bloks previous to this party & many of the mothers enjoyed watching their children build various creations with the bloks they will be looking into more of these bloks for their children for Christmas. I had a great time hosting this party & loved seeing all of the toddlers having such a great time towards the end some of the children got a little cranky because they were tired but we had a lot of fun playing with the bloks so the children were exhausted. We played some fun games with the bloks such as asking the children what sound the Animals on the jungle bloks made. The children had just as much fun knocking down their creations as they did building them. I wanted to personally thank Mega Bloks & MommyParties for allowing me to host this party it was nice to see the children playing & having a great time interacting many of my friends who attended haven't meet my other friends with children so everyone got to meet someone new.I think that Mega Bloks are perfect for small children it helps build imagination,Helps engage them into activity & they never get boring because you can always add more mega bloks or build something completely new.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Aurorae Yoga Review



I enjoy doing Yoga & I work out when I can but I hate having to work out right on the floor I keep my carpets clean,Vacuumed & we steam clean when we need to but I don't like the way the carpet feels on my skin while laying,kneeling,ect while working out so I like using a Yoga Mat.


[Sorry for the bad photo my camera isn't the best]

The Yoga mat I currently use is the Aurorae Classic Yoga Mat in Purple I love using it but my Husband always feels left out so I am happy to announce I got to do a new review of their brand new Northern Lights Yoga Mat in Red/Orange. I love the colors of the Yoga mat, I was going to break out this Yoga mat & give it a test run myself but my husband stopped me stating he wasn't going to use a purple mat even if it was just for a night so I let him test it out since after all he will be the one using it. The Northern Lights Yoga Mat to me seems a little longer than the Classic yoga mat but one thing is for sure it is comfortable helps you keep your balance & your feet planted while working out/doing Yoga. The Yoga mats are easy to roll up & store in the closet when not in use i can easily transport my yoga mat from location to location without having to worry it will get in the way or unroll. I was very happy to find that Aurorae Yoga also sent me one of their Aurorae Yoga Slip Free Rosin Bag, I love this product because it makes me feel more secure when I am working out I like to pat the bag on my Kettle ball so the rosin covers the handle when I start working out & get sweaty I am always afraid I will let go of the bell on accident and break something I have never been close to it but its better to be safe than sorry. The rosin also helps you keep your hands planted firmly on the yoga mat while doing yoga. I think that Aurorae Yoga products are all around fantastic! I love using them and I plan to use them for years to come. If you like working out,doing yoga or other forms of stretching that involve a yoga mat Aurorae Yoga is your place to shop! ****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

My Embroidered Gifts GIVEAWAY & Review



One of my personal favorite gifts to give & receive are personalized gifts,When I was a child I always wanted something with my name on it from the store but since I have a very unique name I always knew my name would never be on anything in the store so on rare occasion when my mother got something that used a laser I was very happy & I want to do the same for my daughter.



I recently worked with a company named 'My Embroidered Gifts' who have a Large selection of customizable items I choose the "Need A Hug" Bear The sweet "Need A Hug" bear is 12 inches tall and has a cute knit red sweater. The sweater can be personalized with a first name. The bear is soft,Lovable & looks great I love the way it turned out & can't wait to give this to my daughter on Christmas. The shipping was fast the bear was properly packed & marked so it wouldn't get smashed during shipping,The bear is high quality & there isn't a stitch out of placed with the embroidery. Along with bears 'My Embroidered Gifts' also sells towels,Pillow pets,Makeup bags,clothing & more you get to pick the font & color you would like you can also decide if you want a full name or a monogram. If this is your daughter or sons first Christmas they have a great selection of 'Baby's first Christmas' items I think all of their products would make great Christmas & Birthday presents. Some of my personal favorite items from the site are the Sesame Street Photo Albums,Abby Cadabby Baby Doll by Gund,& Essential Toiletry Kit the site is worth looking through for all of your Christmas needs. ****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

North Star Games GIVEAWAY & Review



I am very excited to have the chance to work with a wonderful company called North Star Games again,I was recently sent their game ‘Say Anything’ to review having reviewed their ‘Witt's & Wagers’ in the past I knew it was going to be a fun night. My fiance & I invited my mother,mothers BF,My grandmother,My brother & our friend over for Pizza,Gelato tasting[Review coming soon] & Games.



Here is the description from the website “Say Anything is a light-hearted game about what you and your friends think. It will get people talking, laughing and having fun in minutes. Enjoy it with three to eight family members or as an hilarious party game with adults. So dig deep into your heart or just come up with something witty - this is your chance to Say Anything!” While the boys played video games us females played ‘Say Anything’ the game has basic rules that are easy to understand but the three of us decided it would be a little faster & more exciting to see everyone's answers instead of following through with all the rules we’re such rebels! The game was quite fun we have a ton of laughs & good times even the guys got a kick out of hearing some of our answers. I have to admit some of the questions really stumped me since they were asked on the spot it was hard to come up with a fast response for them,Some I tried to make funny others I put real answers for we played for about an hour & hardly broke the stack so we still have tons of questions left to be answered. We plan on playing this game again when we have our family Thanksgiving so that we can play with a bigger group I look forward to having more fun with this great board game. I think this game would make a great birthday or Christmas gift.You can buy their games at Target & Toys R US. If you head over to the North Star Games Facebook page they would like your opinion on your favorite Question from the game & want your feedback in exchange one lucky winner is going to get an ipad [This is a seperate giveaway sponsored by North Star Games on their facebook page] ****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Mama Mia's Jerky Review



I wanted to start off todays post by Welcoming all of my new blog followers! I hope you all enjoy my blog along with my Reviews & Giveaways I have many more headed your way for my Holiday Shopping Guide.



Today's review is from a company called Mama Mia’s who creates some mouth watering beef jerky.Once you get to know me you will find out that both my fiance & myself love beef jerky we have tried many kinds,we have our favorites & our not so favorites but we both have agreed that we love the beef jerky from Mama Mia’s it is moist,Juicy & tender. Mama Mia’s Beef Jerky is based in Corona, California,Mama Mia’s has very fast shipping along with great packaging I love her logo. I was sent Turkey Jerky,Homestyle & Honey Teriyaki for sampling the package arrived fast & was packaged well. Turkey Jerky is A healthy alternative to beef and great tasting as well, Turkey Jerky is sure to please. Made from premium whole breast meat,My fiance isn't a fan of Turkey Jerky but he did find Mama Mia's to be pleasing on his taste buds although he still preferred the regular Jerky so I got the turkey all to myself it was moist,very sweet & had just the right amount of texture to chew properly. I like the Turkey a lot but the Teriyaki was my favorite it was simply amazing & would make a perfect stocking stuffer. The Homemade was delicious as well I can tell you now this beef jerky didn't last long in my house we love beef jerky & we both agree that Mama Mia's is in our top two for favorite beef jerky. Each bag is only $6 which I think is more than fair for the quality of her beef jerky she also sells Combo packs,It arrives fresh on time & will be one of the best beef jerky's you will ever try.****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 Mama Mia's for the Review free of charge****

Their unique double-lid design prevents boil-overs, so your microwave stays clean.Their exclusive color won't stain.The Rice Cooker is for microwave use only it is 3 qts. & Dishwasher-safe. The rice cooker was a bit larger than I expected which is a good thing because of the amount of rice I can cook. It is also great for steamed veggies.

I enjoy this product it is easy to use,easy to clean & simple to store it doesn't take up a ton of room in my cabinet which is a good thing because its being over ran by Tupperware.

Kim & Scott's Gourmet Pretzels Review



Every once in a while I get to share a great new food item with you & I am happy to present you with Kim & Scott's Gourmet Pretzels. They sell a variety of stuffed pretzels which include stuffings like Pizza,Cheese,Egg & Cheese,Apple cinnamon,Cheddar Jalapeno & even a Chocolate crumble.




For my review I was able to test out the following three: Cheddar Jalapeno,Cheese & Pizza unfortunately all three stores I looked at only had one or two flavors so I wasn't able to find any more to test.First off the Cheddar Jalapeno I have to admit I normally hate Jalapeno's so I was hesitant to try it at first but found they actually taste quite amazing! I loved them in fact they were soft,warm & were full flavored. The cheese also tasted great to give it an extra cheese flavor we dipped them in melted cheese just like regular twisted pretzels. The pizza flavored were alright & taste fine when dipped in ranch also. My favorite part of Kim & Scott's pretzels is that Unlike other frozen pretzel brands you can either make them in the oven or microwave & they don't taste like crap I have had a few Pretzel brands that claim to 'taste fresh' right from the microwave but the fact is they get hard & dried out this is not the case with Kim & Scott's pretzels they taste like they were just made you can have perfect pretzels in less than a minute. Both my Husband & I enjoy this brand & we will be keeping our eyes out for more flavors to try as they become available at our local stores. To see if Kim & Scott's Gourmet Pretzels are carried near you, you can head over to their Where to buy page to see what stores currently sell their pretzels.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Simply because I don't want them getting destroyed these butterfly wings are gorgeous so instead of getting beat up by my toddler they hang happily on her bedroom wall among small butterflies & a Fairy escape reading corner [She has a Fairy circle canopy] the butterfly wings add the perfect touch to her room. Fairy Wonderful always has amazing shipping they are speedy & pack the wings so they won't get crushed they arrive in perfect condition each time they are sent out. These wings are every little girls dream dress up wings, They are hand made,durable,& Super cute they come in a variety of sizes & colors. Head over to the Fairy Wonderful website to see what they have to offer you they offer many gorgeous items including their Tutu's. Want to give your little boy something special as well? Fairy Wonderful carries ties & vests for little boys.My favorite part of the Fairy Wonderful website is their prices I believe everything is marked accordingly compared to other sites I have seen Fairy Wonderful is my number one choice for Tutus & Fairy wings.The hardest part of ordering is deciding which one to get because you will want to buy them all for example the Snow white Tutu dress featured below is so adorable its to die for I love the flower ring around the top & how perfect the colors flow together.

Uncommongoods GIVEAWAY & Review


I know recent posts have been mainly review posts & I know many of you are waiting for a giveaway so I have a new giveaway for you today! I recently found a website called Uncommongoods which they really live up too.


For a recent review I was sent A Pita Pocket Lunch set & A Grillasaurus BBQ kids apron.The pita pocket lunch is a made from felt & wood as the description states Your little one will learn how to "pack" their own lunch by mixing, matching and making their own pita pocket stuffed with soft slices of tomato, cucumber, onion, carrots and cheese! & the Kids apron is a cute little kids cooking apron. My personal favorite of the two is the Pita pocket lunch set it is such a simple & fun toy that doesn't make a huge mess I thought it would go perfect with my daughters kitchen she has in her bedroom she has lots of pots & pans but not many fake food items to play House with. I also like the apron it is a little big for my daughter but she doesn't mind & doesn't really notice because when she has it on she is too busy 'cooking' food for her stuffed animals. They have a large selection of items for the Home,You can head over and find some wonderful items for Teens by visiting here & they have Adult products that are worth checking out if you like looking for Original items you can't find in stores. They have fast shipping,good packing & fast customer service I would buy from them in the future for holiday gifts. If your looking for a gift for a certain age group or a specific item their website such as Unique Jewelry which can be seen by clicking here it is easy to navigate & items are easy to find. I have enjoyed working with this company & hope to have the chance to work with them again in the future.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

NeatoShop.com Review

If your looking for neat & interesting products you won't find anywhere else then NeatoShop.com is your one place stop. They offer products for everything from the Kitchen,Bathroom & even clothing they offer something for everyone.



For a recent review I received two Wine Bottle Stoppers,Though I don't drink wine I thought the Bottle stoppers were adorable & well made each stopper is tough urethane resin and natural cork they are also Unique: no two are exactly alike - paint details may vary as it is handpainted. If your wondering what I did with the corks since I do not drink wine,I used them for two of my 'Halloween' bottles I bought last year the original corks I had for them were lost during a move so these fit perfectly. I don't know what normal prices are for wine stoppers since these are Handmade I can see them being a little more expensive but to me the price is a little high right now they are currently on sale for $10 each plus shipping. If your not much of a wine drinker either they offer products for everyone including Bobble heads,Toys,Shirts,Tools,Gadgets & more at a variety of prices. If I could I would buy about half of the things on this website & be very happy, I do plan on buying a few Christmas gifts from this website for my loved ones. NeatoShop.com has fast customer service,fast shipping & great packaging I have enjoyed working with them & hope you will head over to their website to check out all the fun & interesting products they have to offer you they have a great Halloween section & they offer a large Zombie selection for all those zombie fans out there.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.
