Flatten Me Giveaway & Review

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.Products were Provided by Flatten Me for the Review free of charge****



Growing up with a unique name I was always bummed out when I went to the "Name plate" section & knew I would never find my name, times have changed & you can get almost anything personalized now. Since my kids have unique names as well I enjoy getting them custom products with their names on them, so when I was offered a change to work with a company called Flatten Me on a review & giveaway I said yes right away.



For my review I received their "OWL Always Love You" hard cover book which can be customized with your child's name & a dedication page. Here is a little bit of information about the book from the Flatten Me website "Unlike traditional bedtime tales, the Owl Always Love You personalized storybook makes your child the star of the story by repeating his name in the narrative. Your little one will be drawn in by the beautiful illustrations of fuzzy (and sometimes silly) owls settling down for a good night’s sleep, and he/she will love the ethereal images of soaring kites and starlit skies."



I personally love this book the illustrations are simply beautiful they are whimsical yet life like at the same time, each page features an adorable fuzzy owl that goes with the theme for that page. My favorite page from the book says "Owl Always Love you "K" like the sun loves the moon. Owl Always Love you like a song loves a tune." I had a fun time reading this to my son and will continue to read it to him at bedtime, He is a bit young to fully understand the book aside from looking at pretty pictures but I know he will enjoy this book more as he gets older. Flatten Me also offers books that can be customized with photos, T-shirts, Wall art, Cards & Water bottles. The "OWL Always love you" book is $29.95 for paperback or $39.95 for hardcover plus S/H, I think these books would make great Birthday,Christmas or anytime gifts for the people you love most. If you would like to purchase a product from their website you can use the code "Owl_fall15" for 15% OFF your purchase,this code is good until October 15th,2013.




PRIZE ALERT:
One lucky Burning Moon reader will win a copy of "OWL Always Love You", This giveaway is open to US & Canadian Residents only. The winner will need to pay S&H but the book is provided for free [Hard cover].

September Loot Crate Review



****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 Loot Crate for the Review free of charge****




I am addicted to the Loot Crate boxes, Last month I received a great box with a Walking Dead blind box,Portal goods & other fantastic goodies. It is always fun opening these boxes & they always leaving you wondering what will be in the next months box. Each month on the 19th Loot Crate sends out the box for that month giving you two and a half weeks to sign up before they send out the box for that month,Each box costs $13.37 + S/H or you can sign up for more than one month at a time to get a discount. As the 19th of this month drew closer I thought about what could be in the box maybe Video game goods,Maybe movie goods? The possibilities are endless & then the email came "Your loot crate shipment is on the way" then the wait began.



Getting a Loot Crate in the mail will make an adult feel like a child again because of the sheer excitement of opening the box,Opening the September Loot Crate right away I spotted a Funko Pop figure box & let out a  happy screech who would it be? I received a Donatello Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Funko Pop, I couldn't be happier. I love TMNT & I enjoy Funko Pop figures so that was a win win, digging further into the box I also found A amazing Teenage Mutant Ninja Storm Trooper Magnet which is sitting proudly on my fridge,A Simpsons key chain mystery box - I found Homer in my box,A Ren doll from Ren & Stimpy,A Stewie family guy lip balm & various stickers. I have received three Loot Crate boxes so far & I have yet to be disappointed, the one thing I hear most about subscription boxes is "I don't want to pay X price if I don't know if it will be worth it" let me tell you the Loot Crate box is definitely worth the price. This months box had the Funko Pop which range in price from $10-$15 for a figure which right there is the price of the box which still contains 3-5 other goodies.

 

I personally think that Loot Crate would make a great gift for any comic, video game, or cartoon lover in your family. If you want to see images of everything in the box you can check them out here. You can sign up for just a one time box or you can sign up for 6 months to a years worth of boxes & you can use the code “LunaMoon10” you will receive 10% off of your purchase price. What do you think might be in Next months box?

Demeter Review

****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 Demeter for the Review free of charge****




I enjoy bath & beauty products but have never owned large selection of perfumes I find most to be overwhelming but I am willing to try out new brands to find something that suits me. I was recently given the chance to work with a company called Demeter who offers dozens of scents for both men & women,along with diffuser sets, Lotions & Message oil.





Looking through their fragrance selection it was hard to decide on just one because they have so many, Some of my personal favorites were Pink Lemonade, Blueberry, & Christmas Bouquet. They also had some odd scents that left you wondering just exactly what to they smell like? Those scents included Dirt, Funeral Home & Lava Rock. After looking through their selection I decided on Apple Blossom, I normally love the scent of Cherry blossom which they also offer but wanted to go with something new, being a "blossom" I guessed that it would have a nice scent as well. I was very happy to find out I was in fact right, This perfume has a light & flowery scent to it. The smell doesn't feel heavy on the senses like other brands I have tried. I have used this quite a few times since I received it & look forward to using it more as it is something I can use on a day to day basis. Based off of my experience with their product I would both purchase their product again for myself &purchase their products for close friends/family for holiday gifts. For the holidays I am thinking about getting Christmas Tree & Christmas In NY to spray around my home to make it smell more like Christmas. The 1.0 OZ bottles sell for $20 on their website. Want to see all of the fragrances they offer? Head over to check out their website and check out their large selection you won't be disappointed.

Orange Glad Review

****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 OrangeGlad for the Review free of charge****



To this day I haven't meet a person that doesn't enjoy one type of treat or another, although I must admit sometimes chocolate chip cookies get boring after a while I enjoy a good dessert after dinner. I recently found out about a subscription company called Orange Glad who sends out a monthly box stuffed full of sweet treats. I recently received their September box & was excited to get it opened up.




Once I opened the box I came face to face with an ice pack which told me right away chocolate was involved, With the heat we have been having in Arizona I didn't want to risk a mess so I stored the box in the Freezer for an hour before I let anyone try anything. In the box we found the following products: Chocolate-Dipped Macadamia shortbread,Two Designer Chai & Almond spice Cookies,Almond Nougar,A Oreo Cookie cake push pop & a Lemon sugar cookie. My personal favorite were the Almond Nougar treats, I love almonds but have never tried them in this unique form before the whole thing was rich in flavor & chewy yet crunchy at the same time which is something I enjoy. My second favorite was the Oreo cookie cake push pop, This was also a unique experience the cake was in an almost syringe style container that was heart shaped. The cake push pop was fun to eat & brought back memories of eating push Popsicle, I liked that the cake pop had an assortment of different layers each with their own flavor. There was enough cake in the cake pop for two people to enjoy or have as a treat for yourself. My fiance likes the Lemon Sugar cookie as it was a nice blend between a sugar cookie and a lemon bar which we have been enjoying the flavor of lately. The kids also enjoyed the treats that came in this box as they had some of the Chocolate-Dipped Macadamia shortbread & Designer Chai & Almond spice Cookies. In our house we give Orange Glad gets a high score on the like scale.

        

The OrangeGlad sweet box is priced at $15 a month plus S/H, Do I think the cost is worth it? Based off of the amount of products included and the quality of the products I would say yes, I found new treat favorites and would be interested in subscribing to this package because you never know what treats could be headed your way next. Triple chocolate Brownies,cheesecake overload, peanut butter cups with M&M's? You won't know until that box is on your door step waiting to be devoured. Want to find out more about their company? Head over to their website to check out the ordering process and to find more information about the products they offer. Want to order a box? Use the code MOON8 to receive 10% off of your purchase.

Healthy Surprise Box Review

 ****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 Healthy Surprise for the Review & Giveaway free of charge****

I have been on a search for healthy snacks to eat while I am at work, I am usually short on time so I can't spend a lot of time in the grocery isle checking out all the products they offer so when I received a chance to work with Healthy Surprise on a review & giveaway I couldn't refuse. I recently received a "Starter" size box to review, it may be a "starter" box but don't let the name fool you there is quite a bit packed into this little box.




Some of the products I received included an assortment of health bars,sea salt Pumpkin seeds,A brownie, A Cranberry & almond mix,Peach fruit strips & more. A starter box provides 11+ full size snacks which average out to 16-20 servings which is enough to feed 1-2 people per box. Each month the Healthy surprise box will ship out on the same day & should arrive to your home on the same day every month,Delivery usually takes 1-3 business days in the US & the starter box costs $33. I found that most of the snacks were quite delicious I love pumpkin seeds so I was very excited to find those in my box,I am also a big fan of both cashews and dried cranberries so those were lovely finds as well. The two items we didn't like because they aren't something we would normally buy for ourselves were the Sea weed dried treats & the veggie chips they were nice to have included though to give us a chance to try something new which is what this experience is all about. I also enjoy the fact that it gives you a fact sheet letting you know about each item & what they contain for those with peanut or other food allergies. If I were to subscribe to a food box this would be on my list of boxes to purchase. Aside from the starter box they also offer a "Healthy box" which includes 16+ full size snacks & a Large box which includes 27+ full size snacks. What is something you would want to be in YOUR healthy surprise box?




PRIZE ALERT:
One lucky winner will recieve a Starter Healthy surprise box of their own to try out.

Safety 1st Child Passenger Safety Week Giveaway!



September 15th-21st mark The Child Passenger Safety Week,On behalf of Child Passenger Safety Week the company Safety 1st is offering a giveaway of one of the car seats described below to one lucky winner. Please take a moment to read through the following safety tips & car seat information to make sure you a choosing the best car seat for your child to insure their safety.Car crashes are a leading cause of death for children 1 to 13 years old. Many times deaths and injuries can be prevented by proper use of car seats, boosters, and seat belts. Car Seat Safety Tips From Julie Vallese, Safety 1st Consumer Safety Expert:

Importance of Rear Facing:
In March of 2011 the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) updated their car seat recommendations advising that children should remain rear facing until the age of two, or until they reach the maximum height and weight requirements allowed by their car seat. According to a study in the Journal of Injury Prevention children under the age of two are 75 percent less likely to die or be severely injured in the event of a car crash if they are rear facing. When a child is rear facing their head, neck and spine are better supported and in the event of an accident, crash forces are distributed over the child’s entire body.

Installation:
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Association, 75% of car seats are installed incorrectly.  Every car and car seat has different requirements for the safest installation so before you get started it is important to read both the car seat and car manual. Typically the center rear seat is the safest place for a car seat, and never install a car seat in the front seat.  If your car does not have a latch connector for the middle seat, you can use the middle seat belt to properly secure the base.  When installing, make sure the base of the car seat moves no more than an inch from side to side. An easy way to test this is to hold at the belt path.

New parents and grandparents are encouraged to attend a car seat check before the baby is born.  However, don’t just rely on the experts. You’re likely going to be taking the car seat out and installing it somewhere else at some point, so make sure you’re comfortable with the process too.  Want to know more? Please head over & watch their car seat safety video.

Safety 1st would like to giveaway one of the following three car seats, One winner will have their choice out of the three that best suits their child.











Safety 1st Elite 80 3-in-1 car seat
The Elite 80 works in rear-facing mode for babies up to 40 pounds, then converts to forward-facing with harness, but features an extended weight range to keep children safely in harness all the way to 80 pounds.  In its 3rd mode, the Elite 80 goes beyond the traditional convertible seat to convert into a belt-positioning booster car seat for children up to 100 pounds.  Additionally Air Protect + combines the advanced protection of our Air Protect® cushion system with patented GCell HX™ foam designed with hexagonal shapes for 100% full body production.



Safety 1st Advance 70 Air+
This convertible car seat was inspired by race car drivers. Air Protect+ combines Safety 1st Air Protect® Technology with GCell HX™ - hexagonal rebounding foam used in the body of the car seat to protect the child from the multiple hits that occur in crashes. Coupled with this is the placement of Air Protect® Technology which takes crash forces away from a child’s head.  This technology was developed in partnership with racecar engineers at Bald Spot Sports and INDY Car Driver Scott Dixon to better understand the energy dynamics a high performance driver faces in the event of a crash.




Safety 1st BoostAPak Belt-Positioning Booster Car Seat
The BoostAPak is designed to help keep kids in boosters longer, as it’s often hard to get an older child to stay in his or her booster seat. This booster seat also doubles as a backpack!  For children 4 to 7 years old, booster seats reduce injury risk by 59% compared to seat belts alone. (Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia).  Additionally, the AAP recommends children ride in boosters until the age of 12 or 57 inches; but only 13% of children 54-56 inches tall ride on one (NHTSA) **Product is being provided by Safety 1st for the Giveaway free of charge I did not receive compensation for this post**

PRIZE ALERT:
One lucky reader will win their choice of ONE of the car seats above,US only please.

24/7 Frenzy Review & Giveaway!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.Products were Provided by 24/7 Frenzy for the Review & Giveaway free of charge****

Like most Women I am more than happy to add new clothing to my wardrobe when ever possible so when I was invited to host a review & giveaway for the website 24/7 Frenzy I was very excited. 24/7 Frenzy has a large collection of clothing & accessories to shop from. They have a lot of nice clothing so it was hard to pick something for the review but I ended up going with the 6-Pack: Seamless Stretchy Slip Shorts because I currently do not have any.



I like this set of shorts because they come in handy under skirts,dresses & even pants if you need them. The set came in a variety of colors giving me options to go with each outfit I decide to wear, wearing the slip shorts gives me a better sense of security while wearing dresses to know my undergarments won't be shown on accident. So far they have held up great & have been washed a number of times this set of shorts is well made and will last a long time. The shipping was quite fast & the customer service is very friendly, I would shop at their site again some of my favorites from their website include the Bodycon Sleeveless Dress with Contrast Side Panels - Grey Black,
Color Block Surplice Dress - Black Ivory, & Form Fitting Turtle Neck Sweater Top with Shimmer - Grey. Their prices range from $9.99 to $65.00.  If I could choose one thing I would change about the site is that I wish they would carry bigger bra sizes,the highest I could find on most bras was a size C if they offered bigger bras I would purchase mine through their site. Other than that I love their website & plan on adding some of their clothing to my Christmas wishlist this year. You should head over to 24/7 Frenzy & check out what they have to offer that suits your likes.

PRIZE ALERT:
THREE lucky winners will each receive a $50 Gift code to 24/7 Frenzy,Sales items can be purchased with the gift code. The gift code does NOT apply to shipping or taxes. This giveaway is open to US residents only.
