Zazzle Gifts Review

Zazzle was such a fun website to find. The products are so cute. While looking through the site, I kept thinking of different people that each product would be purchased for.

My 14 year old daughter loves mustache items. If you have someone on your list who likes mustaches, you should check out their selection.

http://www.zazzle.com/mustache+gifts

You can also personalize each product. This specific mug that I picked for her, says "Victorea mustache you a question". How cute is that? I was able to personalize by color of mug and by what to say.


There are quite a few different types of mugs to choose from: Classic White (which is the one I chose), Ringer, Two-tone, Morphing (black mug that turns white while hot liquid is inside), Stein, Travel Commuter Mug or the Frosted Glass Mug.

I loved all the options that Zazzle gave me. I'm a picky person. I didn't just have to choose from one product and one color. I got to choose!

This specific mustache mug, even personalized, only cost $16.95

So after picking her product, I kept looking. I, being the mom of 6, never buy anything for myself. So, I was off....what can I find for me? I love to read!

Zazzle has pages and pages of reading gift:

http://www.zazzle.com/reading+gifts

I don't know how long I sat here just searching through all of their unique products just with reading in mind. One of my other favorites is hot chocolate. I decided on a normal mug that I could carry and it would show my personality.


So, I picked my normal mug with just the words GO AWAY IM READING printed on it. I was able to change the colors. My husband loves the Hulk so I chose purple and green. It is really hard to see the green due to the flash of the camera. I was super excited to sit down with my book and my hot chocolate. Maybe the kids would follow the mugs instructions, maybe not. Either way, I got a new product just for me!

This one is also priced $16.95 with tons of mug options and colors

My grandbaby-to-be was next on the list of things to look for. The baby's room will be in monkey theme.

So, I looked up monkey's and baby:

http://www.zazzle.com/monkey+gifts

http://www.zazzle.com/baby+gifts

Both had some great baby products and great baby monkey products. I picked this super duper cute monkey binkie


Check out the bottom of the binkie...yes, you are seeing right. I was able to personalize it also. I love this site!! None of my kids names are spelled "correctly". I love to find companies that have products that I can personalize. Zazzle is just that site.

Every product that they have would make a great gift!

Last person that I decided to buy for was my oldest son. Him and his girlfriend have been together for 2 years now and I thought something aimed just at their relationship would be the perfect gift. These 2 kids are crazy about The Joker and Harley Quinn. For the last 2 Halloweens they have dressed up as them.


So, what did I choose? A mouse pad. Perfect gift for my computer geek son. I decided to personalize it with their picture and She is the Harley Quinn to my Joker


These mouse pads are only $10.95. You can't even beat that at Wal-Mart. I'm thinking about picking up one of these with the opposite saying on it for his girlfriend.

http://www.zazzle.com/mousepads


Definitely check out this site for all your gift giving needs. Shhhh I won't tell if you pick a gift up for yourself while you're at it!

AVASIA Prenatal DHA Review






This is a prenatal helper not meant to be used as prenatal vitamins. Avasia Prenatal DHA is to be used alongside of your prenatal vitamins to give you that extra boost.

Just take one of the soft gets each day along with your prenatal vitamin. Each pill has a citrus taste to it. Avasia DHA pills do have fish oils (Anchovy, mackerel and sardine) in them. I did have a fish taste for a couple hours but then it went away. Usually, while pregnant, I will try anything as long as it is for the baby. Baby comes first.


This is not only good to take while pregnant but if you are nursing, trying to get pregnant or even during those times of menstruation. Good way to keep those iron coming, if you don't like to eat fish.




Product Description
Prenatal DHA for Pregnancy and Breastfeeding Moms. Mega 325mg of DHA. Your RDA in Just one Easy Swallow Softgel with a Very Mild Lemon Flavor. Best Quality Raw Ingredients rated 5* under the IFOS (International Fish Oil Standards) criteria for raw ingredients. Purified to Eliminate Mercury and made in the USA.

It is recommended that women take 300mg/day of DHA during pregnancy, and that all adults have an intake of 650mg of omega 3 each day. In Our Prenatal DHA, there is a total of 820mg omega-3 fatty acids, so although this is launched within our AVASIA Prenatal range, and perfectly complements our AVASIA prenatal multivitamin, it can be taken by anyone, anyday.

Of the omega-3 fatty acids, DHA is particularly important during pregnancy because it accumulates in the brain and retina (eye) of developing babies and is considered key to ensuring the proper development of both. There are some studies that suggest that EPA (430mg/softgel) can slightly lengthen the gestation time of pregnancy, and may assist in mood control thus reducing the risk of post partum depression. At the other end of life, omega-3 is credited with many benefits, not least joint mobility.

By continuing to take at least 300mg of DHA per day whilst breastfeeding, this provides the same levels of DHA in the breast milk that a baby would get if it was fed with DHA enhanced formula milk. This is relevant because some studies have shown better mental performance and hand-eye co-ordination when DHA enhanced infant formula is given, compared to infant formula without DHA.

Many Prenatal and omega-3 products on the market simply do not give you the recommended RDA for pregnancy, or indeed any other time of life. The AVASIA Prenatal DHA gives you all this in one softgel. Although the softgel is quite large, it is shaped for easy swallowing, and has a mild lemon flavor. As a result, we guarantee no fishy burps and no aftertaste! The softgels contain no artificial color, flavor or sweetener, no preservatives, no sugar, no starch, no milk, no lactose, no gluten, no wheat, no yeast and no sodium.

You can purchase this from Amazon.com for $21.99

Pure Body Naturals Peppermint Oil Review




Have you ever used any essential oils? Different oils have different uses. Some of the oils are used for tummy aches. Some for helping you sleep. Some for helping you feel rejuvenated and give you energy.

Whatever the oil you choose or need, make sure that you are using it as directed.

Peppermint oil, not only smells good, but can help relieve those pesky headaches. Just drip a little onto your finger and rub on your temples. This does not replace pain meds or doctors visits. But can reduce a headache to almost nothing. Have a sore throat? Rub a little onto your finger or into your hand and apply around your throat. Let it sit for a few minutes and the scratchy should be relieved.

Each oil is usually 100% pure and natural.

Pure Body Naturals Peppermint Oil is The highest in Quality and Purity. Therapeutic Grade. Suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans. NON-TOXIC. Highly Concentrated, Natural and Undiluted.

MULTI-PURPOSE - Our Peppermint Oil is effective and ►repels rodents and insects such as fleas, tics, flies, rats, mosquitos, mice, midges, spiders, bed bugs, ants and roaches◀. Our oil is 100% NATURAL AND NON-TOXIC perfect for use around the home and garden as it is completely non-harming. Perfect non-toxic alternative to other chemical products with effective results.

When I heard about it being safe to use for fleas, I decided to try. I will let you know how it goes. We just tried it.

Steam Remedy.

Open up your airways and relieve mucus from the nose and throat. Put Peppermint Oil into boiling water and breathe in the steam from the water
.

In addition to this, you can use in your humidifier. There is usually a little dip to put the vapor product and it moisturized the air. Adds a great smell to the room as well.

You can purchase this item from Amazon.com for $19.95

Prenatal Multivitamin Review





It can be so hard to find a good prenatal vitamin. You definitely want one with folic acid and B12 but some of them irritate your stomach. Some don't have the right amount of each vitamin. I have to say that I believe this one might have all the vitamins that you need. It is still good to take the prenatal vitamin before bed. In doing so, it helps your stomach from being irritated by the pill.

My daughter is 29 weeks this week and still has morning sickness. These vitamins have not seemed to cause her tummy any more grief. It is nice to know that the nutrients that she is giving to her baby are good for her.

You don't just need to take these while you are pregnant. It is also very important to take a multivitamin while you are nursing. Make sure that your body and the body of your baby are receiving all the great nutrients.

Added features are stronger hair and nails! There is no strong odor to the Nutrigold Prenatals.

Product Description
About Multivitamins
Multivitamins are supplements that contains at least 3 or more vitamins and/or minerals in amounts that are below tolerable upper limits established by the Office of Dietary Supplements to help ensure that the body's nutrient needs are met and risks of health conditions associated with specific nutrient deficiencies are minimized.
Most commercially available multivitamin supplements feature vitamins and minerals in one or more of the following forms: •Synthetic isolates created wholly in a lab from industrial chemicals
Cultured nutrients created by culturing vitamin and mineral isolates in nutritional yeast
Whole-food nutrients extracted from natural food sources (e.g. herbs, fruits, spices, & vegetables)
A combination of the three forms listed above
Forms of Multivitamins - Synthetic Isolates vs. Cultured Nutrients vs. Whole-food Nutrients ••Synthetic Isolates - Although not ideal because they are synthetic and created in a lab from industrial chemicals, synthetic isolates are frequently used in commercial multivitamin formulations to achieve high doses of vitamins and minerals without the premium price tag associated with food-based and whole-food vitamins. Although relatively inexpensive compared to cultured nutrients and whole-food multivitamin supplements, products formulated using synthetic vitamins and minerals suffer from issues related to poor bioavailability, poor assimilation, non-compliance due to metallic/medicinal aftertastes, and tend to produce side effects like nausea when taken on an empty stomach.

••Cultured Nutrients - Cultured Nutrients are synthetic isolates that are cultured in a blend of nutritional yeast, S. cerevisiae being the most common, and other vital nutrients. The benefit of culturing isolated vitamins in this nutritional yeast blend is that it transforms the vitamin isolate into a whole-food matrix that resembles food. This form of vitamins is safe, natural, wholesome, and does not have the metallic taste associated with synthetic vitamin isolates. This form of vitamins is also better assimilated/utilized by the body than synthetic isolates.
•Whole-food Nutrients - The terms "whole-food" and "food-based" are, without a doubt, the most overused and abused terms in the supplements industry. Most companies use these terms loosely to either market vitamin isolates cultured in yeast / probiotics or, in extreme cases, to market products that contain synthetic vitamin isolates along with a small amount of fruit and vegetable powders to justify the reference to "food" on the label. This kind of labeling is misleading and a disservice to customers who are looking for vitamins derived from conventionally grown food sources. As a general rule, products that claim to be "food-based" or "whole-food," and list yeast (S. cerevisiae) or probiotics instead of the actual food source that the vitamins were extracted from are NOT true whole-food multivitamin products. Whole-food vitamins and minerals are highly bioavailable nutrients that are extracted by concentrating the full spectrum of naturally-occurring nutrients and their co-factors from conventional food sources like fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices..

Prenatal Multi is a synergistic complex of food-based nutrients concentrated from 100% certified organic fruits, vegetables, and herbs using a patent pending process AND ActivFood™ nutrients cultured in a proprietary whole-food matrix comprised of nutritional yeast, probiotics, bioactive enzymes, glycoproteins, lipoproteins, chlorophyll, glucomannan, Superoxide Dismutase (SOD), glutathione, ß-glucans, lipoic acid, essential trace minerals and CoQ10.Prenatal Multi does NOT contain any vitamins or minerals in the synthetic form.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does Prenatal Multi contain anything other than the active ingredient?
In addition to the active ingredient, each vegetarian capsule of this multivitamin product contains a food concentrate that the nutrients are cultured in, which includes S. cerevisiae and other vital nutrients like CoQ10, complex carbohydrates (beta-1,3-glucans and mannan), dietary fiber, SOD (superoxide dismutase) and glutathione (an antioxidant found in yeast that plays a major role in cellular defense mechanisms). To some extent, this food concentrate is considered an integral part of the active ingredient and does not qualify as an additive or filler in the truest sense of the word.
Is Prenatal Multi free of allergens and GMOs?
Prenatal Multi is verified free of egg, gluten, milk, peanut and shellfish by an independent, third-party lab. Although the product contains a soy derivative (Natto, from which the K2 is extracted), the soy protein allergen is removed during processing. Individuals who have an allergen or intolerance to soy, yeast or any of the other ingredients in the food concentrate that the multivitamin nutrients are cultured in should consult their healthcare provider before taking the product. This product is pending GMO-free verification by the Non-GMO Project™.
Is Prenatal Multi suitable for Vegans / Vegetarians?
Prenatal Multi does not contain any animal-derived ingredients and is, therefore, suitable for both vegans and vegetarians.
Is Prenatal Multi safe for long-term use?
Prenatal Multi should be safe for both short-term and long-term use when taken as directed and under the guidance of a licensed pharmacist or healthcare professional.
Is Prenatal Multi suitable for individuals with a medical condition?
Individuals with a known or suspected medical condition should always talk to a licensed medical professional before beginning any form of supplementation. It is never advisable to self-diagnose or self-treat a medical condition.

Smart Moms Teething Bling ABC Teethers Review



SMART MOM JEWELRY

Our youngest has totally fallen in love with these teethers! She has suffered for months now with these gums. These letters came in a nice box with a see through top. There was tissue papers inside to make it look so cute.


I sometimes receive packages and it's in a cardboard box with no "excitement". These cute teething letters would make great baby shower gifts! The sets come in 3 different colors: pink, blue and yellow. Our little girl, when the box got opened, grabbed one out and ran around the house looking like a puppy with a bone! She can chew, chew and chew some more. While teething, kids put the craziest things in their mouths. It is a constant worry for moms. Take the worry away by purchasing this great product. Each set costs $14.99. The ABC letters are soft and bendable. No short edges or small pieces. All of the Teething Bling products are made from a food-safe, phthalate-free, federally-approved silicone. Safety is a big priority for Teething Bling makers. The makers of Teething Bling would like to remind all parents that Children with fully developed teeth may be able to bite through teething letters. Therefore, parents must determine what is best for their own situation and child and as always, we remind everyone that children – of any age – should never be left unattended at any time.

Another cool thing about these neat teethers is, so that you don't lose them, you can attach them to a binky holder.

I fell in love with this company about 2 years ago. I had only had my blog a short time and a new baby in the house. I got one of their products, the onyx teething necklace, in the donut shape.


On sale right now for $9.99
