I Like Book Giveaway!

Having something special to share with your significant other or child is Important & everyone should have a special ritual or routine they do with that special person. One of my personal favorite things to keep connected is the I Like Book. What is an I Like Book? It is a journal that is full of lined pages along with some photos spaced through out the book,Depending on the book you have you would write something you Like about the person the book belongs to every day showing them everything you love about them.

I personally have tried the "I Like Couples Book" with my husband and it was quite fun,heart warming and over all a favorite part of the day I would write a little something and then he would write a little something, Examples are "I like the way you play with my hair while we watch movies","I like the way you laugh" and many more,Sadly we lost our copy during a move but I have been wanting to get a new one since,I am very happy to say The I Like Book has contacted me and I will be hosting a giveaway for one of my lucky readers. The I like book offers a book for Couples,Kids or Women each have their own set of pictures,activities and more such as Tic Tac Toe! The books retail for $19.95 and since you only write one like a day [Per person,or per parent] the book will last you for quite some time to come. This would make a great holiday present or stocking stuffer for someone you know and love. ****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 The I Like Book for the Giveaway free of charge****

One lucky winner will receive an I Like Book of their choice - Children,Women or Couples.

Wittlebee Review

Looking for something Unique to send an out of town relative's child(ren)? I have a great solution for you its a subscription website called WittleBee. Wittlebee is a subscription-based clothing club for kids. Their aim is to keep parents well stocked with children’s clothes by delivering a box of new items to their doorstep every month. Members receive personalized packages based on their child's age, color preferences, geographic location and more. Each box costs $40 &each box has a retail value of over $100 along with Free shipping.

 I recently received one of their boxes for a product review, I made a special request that the company split the box between my two children & they happily agreed. I was very happy with the selections that they choose because they divided the box evenly. They sent a great selection of clothing perfect for Arizona weather pants & light shirts,My daughter loves the clothing she received and wears something from the box at least once a week. For the monthly price I do think the boxes are worth it as you get 6-8 items of clothing in each box even at a regular store you would be paying anywhere from $5-$20 per clothing item so the deal is a steal. Whether you order one month or a year you are bound to find something you love Shipping was fast,Customer service is friendly & they carry Dozens of name brand clothing lines.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Almondina Giveaway & Review

I know many of you drink coffee in the mornings but do you ever have a little treat with it or dunk anything such as cookies into your coffee? I recently received the chance to work with Almondina Cookies! Almondina is a healthy cookie alternative that offers you the wonderful flavor of Alomonds mixed with other natural ingredients. For my review I was sent a sample box from Almondina which can be seen below.

Personally my favorite was the Chocolate Cherry it was a delicious combination & had plenty of almond slivers,My least favorite was the Ginger-spice simply because I didn't like the flavor mixture. As for my husband he enjoyed the Cinnaroma & Chocolate Cherry. These cookies taste wonderful dipped in coffee or milk but they also taste great without dipping them into anything, If I had hot coco I probably would have tried it with that as well. This all-natural, crispy almond cookie has no cholesterol and no added fat, salt, or preservatives. It is wonderfully crunchy and does not have to be dipped. It is a delightful accompaniment for coffee, tea, soft cheeses and fine light wines. The rush to eliminate fat from gourmet foods too often has also eliminated most of the flavor, a fact which is in sharp contrast to this enticingly delicious cookie.Since the introduction of the classic Original flavor, eight more distinctive variations have been introduced, all of which continue to be packed with roasted almonds. A recent innovation, Chocolate Cherry, combines the almonds with dark chocolate and plump cherries.****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 Almondina for the Review & Giveaway free of charge****

Prize Alert:
One lucky winner will receive a box of Almondina Cookies to keep or share with family!

Me In Mind Review

My husband is quite happy that we are having a little boy, He is having a great time helping pick out shoes,jackets,ect that fit our style so when I found out about a company called Me In Mind Footwear we were both exited to receive the chance to work with them on a review.

I was recently sent a pair of their infant boots called "Geneva" in the color Charcoal & a set of their Boys "Rocker" socks. Shipping was extremely fast the order was placed on Friday October 19th & arrived on Monday October 22nd I would call that fast shipping! I couldn't wait to get the box open and check out these adorable baby boots. The description of the boots is as follows: Lace-up, desert boot styled design,Charcoal colored synthetic leather upper,Plush touch polyester lining,Round cotton laces,Synthetic leather sole with non-slip print on sizes NB & SM Flexible rubber sole on sizes MD, LG & XL They come in a Recycled paper gift box & have a  vegan friendly construction the shoes are easy to put onto little baby feet & they have a soft construction to them to keep the babies feet safe. The socks are great as well they feature a Organic cotton blend & have a unique non-slip sole print along with an Elastic collar for secure fit they are Available in 0-12 and 12-24 months but the 12-24 Months can fit a much bigger foot my daughter is almost four and the socks fit her perfect. I think my favorite thing about their socks is their Me-In-Mind Lost Sock Replacement Program lose one of your child's socks? No problem Me In Mind will replace it for Free.

Me in Mind offers a large selection of Girls & Boys shoes,socks and belts for sizes 0m-24Months they are worth checking out as these shoes are High quality and better than the shoes you can find in any department store. Shipping was fast,customer service is very friendly and their products Rock!

Winchester Lambourne Review

After thinking about It I decided it was time to update my blog button so I enlisted the help of a wonderful little etsy shop called Winchester Lambourne who does Clipart, digital papers for scrapbooking, & custom graphics (such as Etsy shop banners, business cards, labels and stickers). I asked them to make me a new blog button & I love the results they really took my description of how I wanted the button to look and made it better than I could have expected for the font I said I liked Script & "Spooky" writing I think they picked the perfect pair.

With the upcoming Holiday season more people are starting to look for custom greeting cards,present tags & more Winchester Lambourne offers some fantastic clipart that can help you solve the problem. Want snowmen bag toppers? or snow flake tags? They can help you with just that by using their clip art sets which sell for $2.90 per kit!

Custom orders are fast and will be more beautiful than expected.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Born To Love Giveaway & Reivew

My daughter enjoys dressing up & enjoys wearing things such as sunglasses and hats so when I received the chance to do a review for a company called Born To Love Clothing I couldn't refuse. Who is Born To Love Clothing? Born to Love Clothing was started by a Mom with help from a very artistic Daddy. After the birth of their son, they began designing and creating baby and toddler clothing they could not find anywhere else. Their son has been the inspiration for the line and continues to inspire them to create original and unique clothing and accessories for stylish kids. They have a wonderful line of Newborn hats along with Boy & Girl hats.

For a recent review I was sent a Hat for my daughter & one for my son, I let my daughter pick out the hat she wanted she had a hard time chooseing but ended up picking the Wolf Faux Fur Hat I am quite happy she did because as you can see above we now have matching hats,Please note I did not receive my fur hat from Born to Love just the child's fur hat. Since my son isn't here yet [Due in Feb] I picked out the Gray Mohawk Hat with black spikes for him. The hats arrived fast & each one was super adorable I couldn't wait to have my daughter try on her hat. The hat fits perfect & is large enough that even I could wear it if I wanted so I know she will have this hat for a very long time,She absolutely loves this hat she enjoys keeping it next to her bed while she sleeps and she wears it on/off during the day. The Mohawk hat is quite adorable itself the outside is wool and the inside is lined with soft cotton making this hat both comfortable & warm.

Along with a great selection of baby and toddler hats Born To Love Clothing offers bowties & shirts for you to enjoy all at reasonable prices. Born to Love ships world wide! I personally love their hats I think the quality is perfect,shipping is fast & customer service is fast and friendly I recommend purchasing hats from this website and I would be more than willing to purchase more baby hats from Born to Love myself as well as their main clothing site Baby Rock Apparel they also offer a special website for those in the UK called My Trendy Baby  ****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 Born to Love  for the Review &Giveaway free of charge****

Playful Critics Giveaway & Review

I am always on the look out for Educational toys for my daughter,As she gets older she enjoys learning more she is three years old and can currently spell,write and read which we think is excellent our next project is to learn about the Earth. On my hunt for Educational toys I came upon a website called Playful Critics & their Globe Bear Plush which features a bead with the Earth for a body.

This Geography aid helps parents and teachers teach early learners the seven continents and five ocean of planet Earth. It creates a simple starting point for open discussions about the world while encouraging adult and child interaction. Our unique huggable bear makes a great travel companion and is machine washable.The Globe Bear is 12 inches tall, contains recycled material, and works best for ages 3 years and up. The bear is light weight,has a nice shape & is adorable though I have found that almost everyone who has made a comment about this plush has thought it was a Monkey with a earth on its belly. This stuffed bear has been fun to play with and helps quite a bit since it is a hand held globe on a cute bear VS a map or large spin globe. Both my daughter & myself enjoy this bear I think it is a toy worth having and would be a great gift for any child starting to learn about geography or for a teacher to have in their class room. The bear retails at $15.95 which is more than I usually spend on stuffed animals but I think that this bear is worth the price the shipping was fast everything was packaged nicely,Customer service is fast & friendly and the product is very well made making it an overall very pleasant experience. Along with the Globe plush bear Playful Critics also offers Plush character book marks,Puzzles & other stuffed animals you can head over to the Playful Critics website to check out all of the fun products they offer. ****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

PRIZE ALERT: One lucky winner will receive their own Globe Bear Plush!

Oransi Giveaway & Review

 It is no big secret that sometimes your refrigerator may not keep your food fresh for very long or have the most pleasant of smells at time but a company called Oransi wants to help you fix those problems with a cheap & easy solution called the Ionic Fridge Air Purifier.

The Oransi Ionic Fridge air purifier cleans the air in your refrigerator so it smells better & helps keep your food fresher for a longer period of time. Some of the features including A Micro CPU controls the operation of the air purifier to cycle between on/off mode,uses 2 AA batteries that require replacement approximately every 45-90 days so the operating costs/battery costs is generally about $1/month. Getting the purifier set up in the fridge took three easy steps: Open the box,put batteries in,Hit on and then your ready to place it in your fridge. My favorite thing about this purifier other than it helping make my fridge smell fresh & helping my produce stay fresh is how small it is, Since it stands less than 5" in height and less than 4" in width this is easy to store and won't get in the way. Here is a little about the safety: The Ionic Fridge air purifier has received safety certifications from GS and CE as well as the RoHS lead free directive. Made of durable fire-resistant ABS materials. Tested for ozone production by ITI (Industrial Research Technology Institute) and found to be 0.011 ppm which is 78% below FDA limits.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

One lucky winner will receive their own Oransi Ionic Fridge air purifier.

Shelly Ka Designs Giveaway & Review

 As many of you know I am a fan of Etsy because it features hundreds of Handmade sellers that make things from Greeting cards,to clothing & even home furnishing. One of my personal favorite shops is called Shelly Ka Designs who makes designs for Babies & Children's rooms.

She offers many products and designs which makes it hard to choose a specific favorite item but product wise I really like her Artwork display hangers which feature two hand painted wooden characters connected to a wax twine for hanging your child's drawings,school work & photos the set comes with matching hand painted clothing pins to make hanging artwork a snap. What other products does Shelly Ka. offer? She offers Original paintings,door signs,Mezuzah cases,clocks,cork boards & more all at affordable prices.

The owner of Shelly Ka. Designs is very sweet & friendly to talk to,She is a fast to respond to messages. Her business was born 5 years ago with the birth of her oldest child. She started drawing paintings for his nursery room while she was pregnant with him & she decorated his room with handmade pictures, a growth chart, a door sign and a mezuza case. Friends who visited her loved the room and started asking her to decorate their children’s room as well. After the birth of her second son, She decided to start her own business.Want to see a little of her process?

Dollar General Review

Quite a few of you many live near or have been to a Dollar General store,but did you know they have their own store brand diapers that are much cheaper compared to competitor prices? I was recently invited to review their new line of affordable diapers along with a coupon booklet.

Want to know how the prices compare? A pack of DG Baby Diapers - 86ct costs $13 while a pack of Huggies Snug & Dry Diapers - 86ct costs $19.65 Saving you almost $7 on a pack of diapers you could buy you extra wipes or other needed baby items with the money you would save. Yes the price is great but how do they stand up to name brands such as Huggies? Since my son hasn't arrived yet and my daughter doesn't use diapers I tested this diaper out by holding it under a running faucet to see how much water it could hold, Surprisingly it held together better than I thought like many others I was a little wary of how the dollar generals diapers would hold,but they held a large amount of water without any leaks or tearing of the diaper. Once I poured out the excess water I poured into the diaper I shook it above the sink to see if it would leak/drip it has a drip or two come off but over all the diaper held the moisture, My husband suggested that I try to "rip" the diaper when wet to see if it would fall apart from them running around,getting changed ect but I was unable to tear the diaper in two. I think these diapers are wonderful & the prices are even better design wise the diapers have pictures of adorable baby animals which would make any child smile, If you haven't been to a Dollar General yet I suggest heading to their website to see if there is one near you, You never know what you might find by visiting the store.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Julep Giveaway & Review

I have always enjoyed doing my makeup but have never really done anything with my nails aside from painting them black or getting the occasional manicure/french tips [Its been a while] until recently when I received the chance to work with a company called Julep.Who is Julep? Julep was created as a tribute to the girlfriends who tell it like it is. Who push us to take a break from the bob and try something a little more daring with our hair. Who give us the courage to pull that little black dress out from the back of the closet. Who insist that we have a little fun with our fashion and refuse to let us settle for ordinary. These are the girlfriends who shout, “Go for the leopard print (or the fuchsia or the fake fur). You look fantastic and you only live once!”

For my review I received a Intro Maven box,A Julep Maven is someone who orders a monthly subscription of nail polish & hand creams through their website. Becoming a Julep Maven gives you exclusive access to COLOR. Each month we hand-pick trendsetting new nail colors, cult faves and cutting-edge beauty products that are just right for you. Commitment shy? No problem. YOU decide how often to receive your Julep Maven box, and you can cancel at any time. To start your sign up you take a quiz to decide what your "Style" is if you do not like the style you get you could always pick another. Each box comes with 2-3 nail polish shades and some come with hand cream. I received the "It Girl Maven Subscription" Intro box which came with three nail polishes: Clarie,Blake & Morgan which are Blue,Yellow and Purple.

I love the how the purple looks and I enjoy the blue as well but it took a day or two to get used to having bright blue nails. I have received many compliments on my nails at work with plenty of people asking where I bought the nail polish because they loved the shades. This isn't your normal polish it offers great color,dries fast,last quite some time before chipping or coming off I have nothing negative to say about this polish. A subscription costs $19.99 a Month which I think is an amazing price considering each nail polish would cost $14 PER bottle other wise, Right now using the code BURNINGMOON you can get your first box for just $9.99, Don't want to continue the subscription after the first month? Cancel at any time without worrying about any charges. Along with Nail polish & hand cream Julep also offers Beauty/Body products.****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 Julep for the Review & Giveaway free of charge****

Prize Alert:
One lucky winner will receive an Into Maven Box of their style choice,Similar to the box I received.[Each box has different colors]

Giveaway has now ended there were 3,880 Entries & the winner was - #2140 Sweetpeamommy2
