Flings Bins Review and Giveaway!

Do you hate having to clean up after a party or other type of event? I know I do! Look no further as Flings Bins are the answer! What are flings bins?

Flings Bins are pop-up trash and recycling bins that make collecting 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. Who ever though that trash and recycling could be so easy?

I was sent the birthday flings bin which was a great use for a birthday party! I love the fact that I didn't have to worry about taking out trash bag after trash bag of garbage. Not only that it is totally up to you but you can reuse it by dumbing the trash into another trash bag.

They have many different varieties of bins to choice from. Not only that their recycle bins save 60 bottles and cans from nation's landfills. They also use biodegradable and recycled materials in all their products. And, we are actively working with waste haulers to continue to integrate Flings into trash and recycling systems everywhere.

Here is a great video on planning a summer party!


Fling Bins is offering one of my lucky readers their very own Birthday Bin and Recycling Bin to use!

The Cream Perfume Company Review and Giveaway!


The Cream Perfume Company sells a wide variety of lotions and solid perfume fragrances online and in stores. The best thing is they have 100% healthy natural and organic ingredients with no harsh chemicals, and no animal testing. They are eco-friendly!

I love scented lotions! I don't know if it has to do with my being older now but I can't wear regular perfume like I use to. I just can't stand the smell of it on me but I can wear scented lotions just fine.

So, when The Cream Perfume Company sent me these lotions and solid perfume fragrances I was excited to try them. They sent me the Lavender Body Moisturizer, Rose Body Moisturizer, Travel Size Coconut Vanille Lotion, Apricot Chypre, and Mimosa bouquet solid perfume fragrances.

I have tried them all and I personal don't like the lavender body moisturizer. The reason why is I have never been big on the scent of lavender. I personally think that it is a acquired smell as I have friends that feel the same way. I really liked the Coconut Vanille Lotion the best. I don't like the smell of Vanilla. So, I was really surprised I liked that lotion but the smell of coconut with it smells delicious! I did like both of the solid perfume fragrances they sent me. It doesn't take much of those at all.

The Cream Perfume Company is offering two lucky readers any one item on their site! This is open to US and Canada residents only.

Mandatory Entry: Go to The Cream Perfume Company and tell me what you would chose if you won.You do not have to be a blogger to enter, but you MUST leave a valid email so I can reach you should you win. I WILL NOT hunt you down. The winner will have 48 hours to respond.

Soda Stream Review!

I have to say I love soda! I am a big cola drinker and was really pleased when I got to review the Fountain Jet by Soda Stream. I have to say it's like having my very own soda fountain in my house. But the best part is it doesn't require any electricity or batteries! Big plus as a lot of stuff requires batteries now these days! All of their machines operate with just the push of a button and a CO2 carbonator cartridge.

So, now you can have a soda aisle right there in your own kitchen and with over 30 flavors to choose from, you’re sure to find at least one you like. If you’re not a big fan of soda, there’s always seltzer water. Flavors include classics like cola, lemon-lime, and root beer…Exotic fruit flavors like orange mango and diet pink grapefruit…Energy drink for those who need an extra boost. And all you need is tap water. Isn’t that just great?

Each sodamix flavoring bottle makes about 12 liters which is equivalent to 33 cans of soda. And it costs around .25 cents per 12 ounce container. Carbonators are available in two sizes, to make up to 60 or 110 liters of soda or sparkling water per carbonator. A full, licensed CO2 carbonator is included with the purchase of every Soda Stream soda maker kit. Just think of all the bottles and cans you’ll prevent from hitting the landfills every day.
I recieved
•A SodaStream Jet in black


•9 sodamix flavors (in regular & diet)

•3 MyWater Essence flavors

•2 reusable carbonation bottles with lids

•1 60 liter CO2carbonator

Plus, with Soda Stream, you control the fizz. Enjoy lightly carbonated water…or seltzer so fizzy it’ll tickle your nose. However you like your sparkling water, you can make it precisely to taste at just the push of a button! You can even make your own flavored sparkling water just by adding a few drops of SodaStream’s all-natural, unsweetened MyWater flavor essences.

Set up is very simple and the lightweight Soda Stream fountain is ready to use. All you do is attach your CO2 carbonator, add chilled water to 1 reusable carbonation bottle, screw it on, push the carbonator button a few times until you hear a “beep” , remove your bottle, add one capful of sodamix, screw on lid, gently rotate the bottle from side to side to blend and that’s it. Instant soda!
 
Another great thing is Soda Stream’s regular flavors contain no high-fructose corn syrup. Diet flavors are sweetened with Splenda® brand sweetener, not aspartame.
 
I have to say this has been not only a great product but it has made another great way for family time. The kids love making soda! We are trying out different recipes everyday!

The flavors they sent me were Just Pears, Just Peaches, Just Mangos, Pumpkin and Banana, and Spinach, Peas & Pear. My baby just loved them. I tried using the Boon Spoon which I love the idea of it as just attach it to the pouch and squeeze but my little one had to have these mixed with cereal. She like her foods to have a thicker texture to them or else she won't eat them. I was really shocked that she ate the Spinach, Peas & Pear as we have tried something with spinach before and she would just spit it out.
They are very reasonably priced. The offer a program called EcoPass. This allows you to purchase a $99 annual membership, which provides for a 15% discount on every order, as well as free shipping with no $75 minimum requirement! Which in my opinion is well worth it!

I CAN READ!

HarperCollins and TwitterMoms wants to know my tips for getting my kids to embrace summer reading. I have to say I am lucky as I got some kids that love to read. Sometimes I have to make them stop to go outside and get some physical activity in. But here are some tips for those of you that don't have kids that love to read.

  • Sign your children up for summer reading programs at libraries and bookstores.They have great rewards!  I know for sure that Barnes and Noble has one and so does Borders!
  • Make sure to provide your children with plenty of books in topics they are interested in. Do they like bugs? Check out some books on bugs. Do they like to draw or do crafts? Pick up some arts and crafts books. Don't worry if they are focused on one topic as long as they are reading.
  • Read to them. Children love to be read to, even older children. Even if you only read 10 minutes a day with them, it can be very beneficial. I know my kids love it when I read to them and change my voice for the characters.
  • Schedule quiet time for about 15 minutes a day for them to read.
  • Give your children a reward for reading 15 minutes a day five days a week.

The number one beginner reader series in the country, I Can Read!, is the open door to a child’s adventure with the most beloved characters in the history of children’s literature. It is the premiere and proven series for encouraging young readers from early reading together to advanced reading alone. The series debuted in 1957 with the introduction of a familiar favorite, Little Bear. It was one of the first ever easy-to-read books that children could read independently, and has been in print ever since. Now with more than 6 million I Can Read! books sold, including 200 titles, I Can Read! books is the best series to take children step by step into the wonderful world of reading on their own.
 
So, show your child that reading is fun! Go get some books and start reading!


I wrote this blog post while participating in the TwitterMoms blogging program to be eligible to get an "I Can Read!" book. For more information on how you can participate, click here.

Healthy Hair Plus Review!

Are you looking for some great hair care products? If you are I sugguest you check out Healthy Hair Plus. They have a great selection of hair care products that address every type of hair and condition you might have from slow growth, thinning and hair loss to damage from breakage, frizzing, coloring, sun, chemicals, stress, and overheating.

Healthy hair begins with effective hair care shampoos, conditioners, vitamins & treatments. Hair care products clean, infuse moisture, vitamins & proteins for growth, shine & health and prevent dry, greasy or oily hair.

I have been having problems with my hair since I had my last 2 kids. I have had major splits and breakage. You the bad thing is I am not one to use a lot hair applances on my hair. I blow dry my hair every now and then. I sometimes diffuse my hair and I flat iron it from time to time but not like a lot of people. So, when I found Healthy Hair Plus I was impressed with all their different hair care products.
So, I chose the Emu Oil Shampoo and Conditioner.It said it was the best shampoo and conditioner for dry, brittle hair.That it replenishes moisture for dry, brittle or fly-away hair. Infuses Panthenol, Emu Oil and amino acids for strength and body. It reduces breaking, spit-ends, and snapping. It helps repair and protect from heat damage.It helps lock-in color and moisture. Emu Oil penetrates deep into the scalp, hair shaft and follicle bulb to moisturize and hydrate. Anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties soothe scalp and skin while deep cleaning and promoting healthy hair growth!
It is their best selling moisturizing shampoo and conditioner for all hair types and styles! The best hair treatments for dry hair! Helps repair damage from styling tools, heat, UVA/UVB and from chemical or coloring treatments.

I have to say they are right just after using it for a week I can tell a major difference in my hair! It also helps with dry scalp and danruff! Emu Oil has been thought to help darken hair by supplying the root with helpful omega nutrients. I tell ya I am not old by no means but I do have some gray in my hair as premature gray runs in my family. I am not one for dying my hair. Of course that made it another plus to try. I can't say that it has done that yet as I have only been using it for a week but I can say my hair is so much softer and got more body. Not only that but I have dry scalp and danruff problems and I can already tell a difference.

I would so reccomend checking out Healthy Hair Plus next time you are in the market for hair care products!

What I have been up to!

I have been canning the last couple days! Thanks to my mom whose garden has gone crazy with mass production. I tell ya we have been so blessed! We weren't able to do  a garden this year due to the fact that hubby has had so much side work to do for the last 3 1/2 months he didn't get time to till our garden. The only thing we have out there is strawberries from when we planted them last year.
So, my mom has been giving me squash, zucchini, and cucumbers. Let me tell ya her squash and zucchini plants come up higher than my waist! Her tomato plants are up to my chest! They really only planted I believe 4 of each plant. The other day my mom brought me a 5 gallon bucket of cucumbers and zucchini the size of a baseball bat. Zucchini like that it only takes one to feed my family.
So, I have come up with creative ways to eat zucchini. Let's see we have had so far zucchini bread, grilled zucchini, steamed zucchini, and I got a recipe to try zucchini pie. Of course you can use squash in every recipe you use zucchini as they are from the same family. We also have had all the above with squash.

Well, anyways I had to start doing something with all these cucumbers I have and I am still not done. So, I tried my hand for the first time at making homeade pickle relish and sweet pickles.


I usually make bread and butter pickles and I have to check but I might have to make some more of those as I think the kids ate all of them up except one jar. The only think that I worry about most is my jars not sealing. If it don't seal you have to do it all over again which is what I had to do when I did the pickle relish. But if you don't catch it that day then you have to put it in the fridge or throw it out. Which can be very aggravating.

I just wanted to share what I had been up to! I still have a whole crisper full of cucumbers to do something with.

No Slippy Hair Clippy Review and Giveaway!


No Slippy Hair Clippy was invented out of sheer frustration in 2000. It took a mom with an almost-bald baby girl to invent a hair clip that would stay securely in place and look cute. For countless generations, baby girls have often been mistaken for boys, and until No Slippy Hair Clippy® opened its doors in 2001, you couldn’t find a hair accessory created specifically to stay in baby-fine hair.

They were originally designed with a magnet to enhance the hold, they now use a more expensive Plush Swiss Velvet wrapped completely around the metal clip, to provide an identical snug, secure grip. It’s now lighter weight, and so soft she won’t even know it’s there! Their clips won’t hurt if she pulls them out, either, and because they use the highest quality clips available, they don’t bend easily, like others do. Truly the world’s finest non-slip clip®!


They also design hair accessories for women, girls and teens along with babies. They offer three different sizes and types of clips; a Mini, a Standard Pinch, and a French Clip for girls of all ages with lots of hair. All are non-slip clips®, and they also won't slide in fine hair of any length. We also offer no-slip headbands, including an organic cotton head wrap, the first of its kind!

I recieved 1 1/4” Mini Clip, 1 ¾” Pinch Clip, 2 3/8” French Clip, as well as a headband and their new line of non-slip clips called Clipettes™.
 I have to say I love these! I have had so many problems with all hair things falling out of my little ones hair it isn't funny. I don't know why my little ones have such fine hair but they do. So, I was happy to get to try these on my little ones.They really do stay in place and not slip out which is a big plus! Not only that my 1 yr old pulled her's out and didn't hurt her like most hair clips. I was very impressed with these clippies and would so recommend these to everyone that has a little girl especially if she has fine hair! These are a must have!

No Slippy Hair Clippy is giving $25 worth of product to one of my lucky readers!

Mandatory Entry:Go to No Slippy Hair Clippy and tell me one of the products you would get if you won. This must be done in order for any extra entries to count!

CSN Stores!



CSN Stores has over 200 online stores where you can find everything from cookware to cribs to specific needs such as dining room sets and dog beds!

I am very impressed with all the things you can chose from. I could spend all day and probably all week browsing their site. Can you believe 200 online stores! So, image my surprise when CSN contacted me to do a review! I am very excited and am going to have a hard time chosing what I want to get! I am thinking maybe something for the kitchen? something for my little ones? something for hubby? Who knows?

I will be posting a review about CSN and the product I chose later. Make sure you stop back by!

Bubble Planner Review!

Are you tired of feeling like you are forgetting something? Do you feel like you aren't getting anything accomplished? I know I am as I feel so overwhelmed at times!

So, when Bubble Planner sent me their Homework Helper, Bubbles for Busy Women, and Grocery List Notepad I was excited! These are all great resources to have.


The Homework Helper is real easy to use. It has a place to put each subject and then it list the days of the week. On each day of the week it has a place to circle what day it is due and then a place to check off when done.It's not only for homework but you can list when you have quizs coming up etc.

The Bubbles for Busy Women I have to say is every busy woman's must have! This planner is super simple and easy to use. I thought it would be a little more complex, but it really is very easy! User Friendly! On the inside are pages for goal setting (of all kinds), projects, places to keep track of birthdays, and calendars. There are also the planning bubbles like shown here:
On each open page there are places to make phone calls, computer work, house work and running errands. And in the bubbles you can fill out what you need to do each day. Like mine for today under house work is do landry, clean bathrooms, sweep and mop. Computer work was write the Bubble Planner Review and I had named some others I need to get done. As for telephone calls I have none I have to make today or any errands to run.
The Grocery List I love it as it has your basics at top like bread, milk, eggs already listed I just put a check next to the ones I need then cross them out as I am done. It also says don't forget your coupons which I am bad about doing!

I do have to say if you are a visual person these are definetly for you! They have other planners besides the Bubbles for Busy Women.
If you are in need of a planner I would check out Bubble Planner.

Cafepress Review and Giveaway!



CafePress offers the best selection of unique and personalized gifts, t-shirts, clothing, mugs, art & posters. You can even design your own!

I was really impressed with all their designs that it was hard to chose from. Then I decided why not make my own t-shirt with my design! Here is what I came up with:

My shirt says "Frogs have it made they eat what bugs them". I for one have a love of tree frogs along with butterflies and owls. So, it really was hard for me to decide what shirt I wanted.

They have so many other products you can customize, too. I could spend all day searching through all their products. Another great thing is they have a 100% satisfaction guarantee! What's not to like about that!

Cafepress is offering one of my lucky readers a choice of their very own short sleeve t-shirt.

Ecousable Review!



Ecousable provides consumers with affordable planet-friendly, reusable products that are recyclable, health concious and designed to improve the lives of people worldwide.


They sent me 5 of their ecousable bottles, a black sports cap, and 3 water wrapz. I got a 10 oz, 16 oz, 33 oz, and two 25 oz bottles with one being the Ech20. The Ech20 is a the world's first stainless steel filtered water bottle. It includes it's own portable filtration system and provides instantly filtered water from almost any fresh water source. It removes harmful contaminants as you drink through the flip top straw.

I really love these bottles and my 2 1/2 yr old laid claims on the pink butterfly one as soon as she seen it. I love how cold it keeps your water as I go to the gym and always take a water bottle. Sometimes by the time I am done working out my water is warm and I don't like to drink lukewarm water. Who does?

Ecousable water bottles are:

Available in an assortment of sizes, graphic prints & solid colors.

Made from 304 food grade stainless steel (18/8).

BPA free & Aluminum free.

Non-­‐leaching & liner free. Since their bottles are stainless steel we don’t have to line them like aluminum bottles. The consumer doesn’t have to worry about scratching the liner, which could potentially leach aluminum into their water.

100% reusable and 100% recyclable.

Half turn loop top; fewer threads mean less chance of bacterial growth. (Most other bottles require 3-­‐8 turns to open.)

Easy to clean and fits ice cubes.

Exclusive skid-­‐proof mat bottom.
 
WHY YOU SHOULD NEVER DRINK FROM A SINGLE USE PLASTIC BOTTLE AGAIN

THE IMMEDIATE HEALTH RISKS

Plastic bottles can leach harmful chemicals, such as BPA (bisphenol A) that contaminate the water. In scientific studies, BPA is often linked to health issues such as heart disease, cancers, infertility, obesity, and diabetes.

Studies also indicate heat from the sun ruins the integrity of the plastic bottle which can leach plastic into your bottled water.

THE ENVIRONMENTAL DEVASTATION

Regardless of our recycling efforts, over 60 million plastic water bottles go into landfills every day.

Countless more wind up in our oceans and waterways.

THE ENORMOUS CARBON FOOTPRINT

Plastic water bottles are a petroleum based product. Studies show 1.5 million barrels of oil—enough to run 100,000 cars for a year—are used to make plastic water bottles.

THE BOTTOM LINE

Avoid using and reusing single use plastic bottles

Not all metal bottles are the same. Avoid aluminum bottles; aluminum is linked to Alzheimer’s and other illnesses.

EcoUsable 304 food grade stainless steel bottles are the safest and best choice!
 
After reading all this information myself it made me never want to drink out of a plastic bottle! I have a feeling after reading that too you will feel the same way.
 
You can buy your own Ecousable bottles here. They are offering my readers a 10% off code when you use ECO10 at checkout. I so recommend these bottles over plastic!

Picky Sticky Review and Giveaway!


Picky Sticky was created by a mom who wanted to capture each milestone of her baby. Thus she came up with a creative and easy way to do just that! 

I was sent the Years of Fun Curly Whirly set as my little one is past the months milestones. All you have to do is place these stickers on your babies' onesie or t-shirt each month on their birthday. Then grab your camera and take a picture to start documenting how quickly they grow. It's an easy fun way to keep an exciting record of you new bundle of joy. Picky Sticky's make a great gift for the new mom.

This is a set of 12 stickers numbered 1 thru 12. Each sticker is 4" in diameter and is made of transparent sticky paper, when it is applied it LOOKS like it's an iron-on transfer.


They don't only have this set I got they have many different ones for months and pregnancy as well.Which I think is great as I took pictures of my little ones at the different months but never wrote down how old they where like a dumby! So, I have to look at the dates they where taken to determine how old they where. With these cute stickers you don't have to guess no more! The would be the perfect gift for any mom weather she is pregnant or not.


Picky Sticky is giving one of my readers a set of their very own Picky Stickies!

Kimochis Review


Kimochis are toys with feelings inside and were created to to assist in parent-child communication and help in building social and emotional intelligence, as well as self-esteem in children. Kimochi (Key.Mo.Chee) means “feeling” in Japanese and the new line of plush characters comes equipped with 3 plush feelings and a Feel Guide. The idea behind Kimochis is that kids can get in touch with their emotions with puppetry and play. Kimochis allow children to communicate with a parent or caregiver in a way that deflects their emotions away from themselves and focuses these feelings on a Kimochi. This allows children to feel more comfortable when sharing their feelings.I received Kimochis Huggtopus with a mixed feeling pack. Both my little ones just love her. I have been teaching my 2 1/2 yr old how to use it. She still working on it. I love the fact that they have pictures on the front so since my little one can't read yet she can determine the feeling she is having by the picture. Also, in the mixed feeling pack they give you one blank feeling that you can write whatever you want on.
The Kimochis are what come inside each character. They are small pillows with feeling on one side and a corresponding facial expression on the other. The facial expressions allow for children to quickly identify the emotion and place it inside each character's pocket. Additional feeling packs can be purchased separately.


Here is how it works:


1. Child has a feeling.
2. Child can identify and express their feelings by choosing a plush emotion and placing it into the front pocket of the Kimochi.
3. Parent can reach inside, pull out the feeling and talk about it with their child.


The feeling guide gives parents some really great ideas on how to communicate with their child and offers ideas such as games you can play with your Kimochi.That way children can become comfortable with the Kimochi.This will assist both parent and child later when a “feeling” arises.


Each character has its own and very distinctive personality. One character may identify more with your child than others. For instance Kimochi Huggtopus is very affectionate and strong and sometimes gets a little carried away by her big friendly personality. She would be perfect for someone that is a little overbearing.  Kimochi Huggtopus comes with Happy, Silly and Fustrated feelings.






Feelings should be as quick and painless as this process. This toy teaches children it's okay to have feelings and it is important to share them. Of course it teaches how to express them in a right way.These toys are cute and cuddly as my little ones just love Huggtopus! I would so recommend these as a great way to talk to your child about feelings!
