Tuesday, December 11, 2012 Review

To me my cat is just as much one of my children as my daughter is,They are both around the same age and grew up together She was almost a year old and he was five months when we received him. Every year I try to get him new toys at Christmas as well so when I received the chance to do a review with the company Mr. Chewy I could not refuse.

For my recent review I received the chance to pick a few things out for him on their website, I picked some cat food,kitty litter & a new cat toy for him to play with,As you can see above he knew right away the box was for him. The shipping is quite fast & they offer a monthly plan that allows you to pick out the food or pet supplies you need,and will deliver them monthly at the same time for a fee,For those who are unable to get out of the house or have a hard time on their own this is a wonderful option. The site offers a huge selection of Dog & Cat products ranging from Food,to toys & bedding they even offer pet medication. I think they have great prices,fast shipping and wonderful customer service, I would love to see them add more areas for other pets such as small mammals,birds,ect. My cat is enjoying his wet cat food and his fresh litter,The toy I picked out for him is a little heavier than I thought it would be but he still plays with it frequently. ****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Family Bedrock Review

I am always on the hunt for fun new baby products for my son who is due in Feb. On my search I happened to find a company called Family Bedrock who offers a fun range of baby items including Crazy Creatures Designs Bibs & Pacifiers.

For a recent review I was sent a Crocodile Pacifier & Flame Pacifier,I think these pacifiers are so much fun because they make your child appear to have Crocodile teeth,A clowns mouth/smile and more. They each have a unique and fun design which is sure to please the eye. Here is a little bit about the Pacifiers: "They are BPA and DEHP free!!, They have been been tested and meet strict USA, Australian and international standards. They are made from high quality food grade silicone,and come in three sizes (Newborn, 6-12 months, 12+ months) so there is something for everyone." I personally enjoy the shape and size of this Pacifier it is one of the better pacifiers I have seen or have owned. Family Bedrock also offers Cloth Diapers & items for older children feel free to check out their website as everything is price at great prices. The shipping from Family Bedrock was faster than I had expected and their customer service is very friendly, I would personally do business with them again and purchase more of their fun products. ****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

My Feeding Friend Review

One of my favorite baby products I owned when my daughter was a baby was my Boppy Pillow,This time instead of going with a Boppy Pillow I discovered a product called My Feeding Friend. What is a My Feeding Friend? It is a support pillow that also doubles as your child's first stuffed animal, Each pillow is quite large & will stay with your child from an infant to teenager years. All animals are 41 inches long and 20-22 inches in circumference.


I personally love this I have been using it as a back support in bed once my little man arrives I will happily hand it over to him,This will make it easy to feed him and give him something to support his body while he is having Tummy/Floor time. If I could I would have one of each Friend they offer they are all quite adorable it was hard to decide which I wanted but in my Husband family it is tradition that new born baby boys receive a Tiger stuffed animal so it seemed only natural to get the tiger. The Tiger is very soft,comfortable and child friendly this would make a wonderful Christmas,Birthday or baby shower gift I will be holding onto my sons tiger for years to come.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

DaddyScrubs Giveaway & Review

Along with a new baby comes new baby gear this time not only do I want myself to be prepared but I want my husband to have everything he needs as well so when I heard about the website DaddyScrubs who offers expectant father gifts I knew I had to have a look for myself. What is DaddyScrubs? "DaddyScrubs is the offspring of Robert Nickell, who fathered his first four children more than 20 years ago. DaddyScrubs was conceived when Robert, who remarried in 2007, discovered he was about to be a father all over again in the fall of 2009! Not wanting to endure the pains of wearing uncomfortable street clothes while comforting his laboring wife, Robert hatched the idea of creating doctor-like scrubs for himself. It seemed a natural thing for him to do — since Robert is a pharmacist by profession. To eliminate the confusion between “who’s the doctor” and “who’s the daddy,” Robert fashioned the concept of “I’m The Daddy” medical scrubs."

For a recent review I was sent The Daddy Diaper Pack, It comes in basic black & is the ultimate backpack for Dads with full straps and clips to lock it down, and to take it off quickly and easily.The custom design allows less fumbling through deep pockets and eliminates struggling to take off the pack while holding baby. The side pockets are great for water bottles, baby bottles, and sippy cups. There’s a big pouch for diapers, wipes, and a change of clothes (and of course a small one for the “dirty stuff”). Since our son isn't quite here yet my husband tested out this pack by carrying around some of his things for the week,He loves the pack & keeps finding new things he loves about the back pack. My husband enjoys that fact it is easy to put on & take off,it holds plenty of things & has a variety of pocket sizes so you can bring everything you need for baby. I also plan on using this when our little man comes because this is better than the diaper bag we had for our daughter it is much bigger & easier to find/access the items you are in need of. The bag costs a little bit more than I would pay for a pack but it is worth the price and is sure to last a long time,The pack retails for $69.95. DaddyScrubs also carries Sweaters,Hats,Books,Scrubs & daddy to be gifts all at different prices. ****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

One lucky winner will receive a pair of DaddyScrubs in Navy,Green or Khaki. This giveaway is open to US & Canadian residents only.

Entryways USA Giveaway & Review

I am quite excited I recently received a Blue Snow Flakes Hand Woven Coconut Fiber Doormat from Entryways USA . Why am I so excited? This is the first doormat we have had for our apartment in the two years we have been here & it is a holiday doormat so it helps me decorate the outside.


"This beautifully designed hand-woven doormat will enhance your entry way or patio. It is made from the highest quality all natural coconut fiber." Made from all-natural coconut fiber which is an excellent dirt-trapper; 3/4 in. thickness,This mat is stenciled with permanent fade resistant dyes. It measures 18 in. x 30 in." The mat is light weight but heavy enough that it stays in place,there are quite a few times when we have come into the house after walking through the grass to get to the path way my husband has drug mud into the house & onto the carpets we haven't had that issue since. Normally I don't like doormat's that are similar made to this because they tend to leave pieces of it all over & fall apart easily but I enjoy this mat because it doesn't do that. Entryways USA offers a wide range of doormats for different seasons,holidays & made from an assortment of materials. You can find their mats at some local hardware stores, garden centers, Whole Foods, & gift stores Or online at,, or ****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

North Star Games Review & Giveaway

When my family gets together for family dinners whether it is for fun or for a Holiday we enjoy sitting down to play a board game or two. This year I was lucky enough to be sent the game Wits & Wagers Party from North Star Games, We decided to sit down and play this on Thanksgiving while we had a larger number of people over.

How do you play? 1. A question is asked & everyone writes down their guess on a small white board included in the game, 2. Everyone gets to place bets of whose guess is the closest? Each team receives two tokens to "Bid" on which answer they think is correct.If you are feeling confident, bet on your guess,If you think your friend knows better, bet on her guess or if you just have no idea bet on ANY guess and hope to get lucky! Once the answer is revealed you get to see who was right & who places their bet on that answer which is when you get to add points to that teams "pot" at the end the team with the most points or first to reach a certain amount wins.

I love this game because it really tests you on what you know,Not only are the questions from recently but they go pretty far back such as when was the first roller skate invented? It was fun reading the answers as many were quite surprising. It would be a fun game to play over & over again with friends and family. We played this game for about an hour and had a blast. ****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.
