Queasy Pops review by Niki Rayven's Niche:

Ok you caught us at a great time on the queasy pops. Not only was I sick but Kirk and Amanda were also. Think we had the 24 hour bug, mine was a little closer to 48 but all well now.

So we tried the queasy pops. Our symptoms: back pain, nausea, dehydration, upset stomach and diarrhea. I did not eat for a day and a half because everything smelled nasty or taste nasty from me being sick, so I mainly lived on soup, and hot tea.

The queasy pops come individually wrapped. They say they come in seven delicious all natural flavors. When taking the pops out of the box there are no markings on package to tell you what flavor you are getting. So we went with color. Kirk had yellow, I had orange and Amanda took brown. I ended up with papaya, Kirk ended up with lemon, and Amanda ended up with Ginger. The flavor of my pop was not bad, I liked it. Kirks taste different but not terrible. Amanda could not finish hers and ended up getting sick again afterwards. But it was probably that ginger didn't agree with her. Another flavor would have probably helped. As far as effects go, Kirk says he did feel better after the queasy pop, and his stomach issues only lasted about 16 hours. Amanda had didn't recover as quickly. I liked my flavor. I think the taste was ok, as for effects I did not feel anything special than if I was sucking on a regular lollypop. I think I would use this for when the kids say “I don’t feel well” and this would be a great alternative to a sugar filled lollypop.

Queasy Pops for kids review by Five Lil Bass In Tow:

We unfortunately ended up with a couple kids sick with tummy bug here now also. Kirky just tried the yellow sucker. He said it was good tasting. He has thrown up a ton in last 24 hours, but after eating sucker he said his tummy had relaxed. In his words " I don't feel pukey". Myrissa had one I believe it was root beer or cola. She also said she noticed a small difference. These are a great product. I would definately buy these.
If you have a child going through chemo or other medical things that cause nausea please try these. They were a great help. You can contact Three Lollies, or order from Amazon or Drugstore.com

Teething Bling Necklace Teethers Review


Here is their commitment to safety if you are concerned:
Our Commitment to Safety

Teething Bling ® pendants, bangles and keychains are made from the same silicone as most teething toys; for example - the 'coated' infant spoons we all use. Our products contain no harmful chemicals such as phthalates, BPAs, PVCs, lead or latex and all pendants come with a breakaway clasp as an added safety measure. We are CPSIA compliant, carry the CE mark (meaning we meet the strict European safety standards as well) and our materials are federally approved. Safety is our number one concern - and all test reports are available upon request.

Occasionally a customer will ask if Teething Bling ® is appropriate for a child of a certain age. Our products are designed for adults to wear to soothe and entertain babies with emerging teeth. Children with fully developed teeth may be able to bite through Teething Bling ®. 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 with jewelry of any kind.

Tons of star moms love these stylish necklaces also. Tori Spelling, Angela Basset, Holly Robinson Peete abd Ming Na!
These necklaces and bangles come in many different colors and designs. I love the black one that we received to test and review. Danelle, 11 weeks, loves it! Right now she mainly hangs on the cords but if we put it in her mouth she sucks and gums it for all she's worth. I am able to wear my necklace to church in a fancy setting and even at home or to store with a hoodie. The black goes with everything! I would really love to get another cutsie color now. These run anywhere from $16-$24 each. But are well worth the money they cost.

Teething Bling also has a few lines to choose from not just the one. The newest line is the beaded line. Very stylish. Then there are Signature, Patterned, Ring Pendants, Shimmer, a Sports line in your fav teams colors, Triangle pendants and even Tween bling for siblings. Then they have the Bangles!

We received the Onyx Donut Shaped Pendant

We have received quite a few compliments on it and been asked where I got it. Great bit of advertising for Teething Bling!

The one I would love to get now is in the Shimmer line:

Oh I almost forgot their new mens line for dads! It is Babe Magnet Ties.
Finally, something Dads can wear to soothe and entertain babies!

Our ties look just like 'regular' ties but safely tucked inside each one is a surprise: a squeaker and a rattle to delight curious babies.

Ties that Surprise - now, that's a Smart DAD!

This is a wonderful company with a wonderful product for all you moms out there! Go check them out.

Five Lil Bass In Tow was not monetarily compensated for this review. I was sent one of their necklaces to test and post an honest review.

Boogie Wipes Review and Giveaway

I was so excited to hear about a product like this. Even my older kids lately have been having cold after cold, and their noses were raw. They have found they love these. These do not have to be solely for little ones. My 12 year old used them for her cold and was relieved not to get a raw nose this time around. These are also gentle enough for the 2 month old in our house! Boogie Wipes also have a wonderful smell. No raw, great smell you just can't beat that! Also Boogie Wipes are not expensive. They cost about what a nice box of tissue would cost. I love that they are the perfect size to carry in your diaper bag, purse or to leave in the glove box of the car for when you are on the run! You can also find these just about anywhere. Walmart, Sams Club, Target, Walgreens and CVS. If your child has a cold, please save them the pain of a hard tissue. Go buy Boogie Wipes. If you haven't tried them before why not enter my giveaway. Maybe you will be the lucky winner of these nose and sleeve saving items!

Boogie Wipes are made with natural saline to dissolve boogies (mucus) caused by the common cold, allergies or otherwise booger-filled kid moments.

Extra soft, alcohol, phthalate and paraben free, Boogie Wipes are available in Great Grape, Fresh Scent, Minty Menthol and Simply Unscented. Recommended by pediatricians as a gentle, effective alternative to a dry tissue.

Here’s ‘What’s Up’ at Boogie:

If you are a parent, you know, that when your child is sick you want something to act instantly to help them feel better! That is why we use Advil. This medicine does not take the place of a doctor.

Sentry Electronic Fire-Safe with USB Connection Giveaway

I have teamed up with Mizz Review Lady to bring you this awesome giveaway!!! Be sure to read her review below, and then enter the giveaway.

It's not too late to give the gift of being safe, and with Sentry Safe you can do exactly that!  Sentry Safe offers a wide selection of innovative safes to fit your every need and desire. No matter what you need to protect they have you covered!  From electronics to guns and even digital media, if you've got it, they can protect it!

Sentry Safe has a history of providing customers with high quality safes; in fact, they have been satisfying happy customers for 80 years now, spanning for three generations.  This family owned company was founded in 1930 by John Joh D. Bush Sr. and Willard Punnett. They were the very first to bring consumers the UL classified fire-resistant safe in 1955.  Sentry Safe is dedicated to bringing customers reliable safes, while providing them with a pleasant shopping experience.

I recently was given an opportunity to select a safe from their gift guide,  so as you can imagine I was super excited!  Especially by the fact that I was going to receive a safe from Sentry Safe, because I knew I would be receiving the most utmost quality safe.  Besides that I have been having to store my valuable jewelry at my parents house because I did not have a safe place to put it, that is until I received the Sentry Electronic Fire-Safe with USB connection(Big Bolts USB Safe), from Sentry Safe. I was mostly excited to review this extraordinary safe because it allows me to stay connected to my protected data via a USB 2.0 connection, allowing me to access my protected data while it's stored in my safe.

The Sentry Electronic Fire-Safe with USB Connection safe has many different useful features including:

  • Advanced and ETL verified 1 hour fire and drop protection to keep your belongings intact and safe
  • Bright, LED interior lighting to make organizing belongings easier
  • 1.2 Cubic Foot Capacity
  • A multi position tray which allows for easy organization
  • ETL verified 15 ft. drop test
  • Dual electronic lock and key increases security
  • 4 live-locking bolts are 60% larger and help prevent unwanted entry and access

And those are just some of this incredible safes features!  I have to say I love the fact that it includes a electronic lock and a key making it impossible for my children to break into. That being said I also love the fact that after 5 unsuccessful attempts to enter the code, it automatically shuts down for fifteen minutes. The safe includes a bolt down kit which allows you to bolt it down so that nobody can take off with it.  Even though, I must say it is very heavy, so it's not the easiest to steal in the first place.  It includes a bright LED light so that you can easily see inside of it, even at night time.  

Since I have received the safe I have got so much use out of it, and so has my husband.  He was able to store his money, and extra set of keys in it, while I am able to store my jewelry, important documents, and expensive electronics in it.  We can rest assure that they are safe from theft, and even fires and floods.  Yes, I said fires and floods!  This is because the safe has a fire and water resistant design.  

This safe is just one of many that Sentry Safe are featuring in their holiday gift guide this year.  Scroll down to the bottom of the gift guide and you will find a link that will allow you to print out a copy of the guide, so you can bring it along with you shopping.  

LEARN MORE: To learn more be sure to visit Sentry Safe online, like them on Facebook page, and follow them on Twitter.

BUY IT: You can purchase the Big Bolts USB Safe online at Best Buy.

WIN IT: Thanks to Sentry Safe one lucky reader will receive a Big Bolts USB Safe, just like the one pictured in the post.

Safe Hands Review and Giveaway

What is safeHands®?

safeHands® is the world’s first line of soothing and effective alcohol free hand sanitizers developed for multiple daily use. It’s hydrating foam-based hand sanitizer kills more than 99.99% of germs on contact, while still leaving hands silky smooth.

Who are the creators of safeHands®?

Dr. Jay Reubens is the Founder and CEO of safehands®, the world’s first alcohol free hand sanitizer. Dentist by trade and alcohol free pioneer by choice, Dr. Jay is spearheading the alcohol free movement with safeHands® and his mission to “Safe the Planet!”™ Dr. Jay has joined forces with Dr. David Dyer, a leading peer-reviewed FDA consultant and scientist who specializes in Benzalkonium Chloride, the active ingredient in safeHands® products.

For a 1.75oz squirt bottle the cost is only around $2.50. For the 7oz bottles they run about $3.95. You can purchase these at

The Safe Squirts for kids come in these flavors and sizes:
•Pink – Bubble Gum (available in 1.75 fl. oz. / 7 fl. oz.)
•Blue – Cool Blue (available in 1.75 fl. oz. / 7 fl. oz. / 18 fl. oz.)
•Green – Tooty Fruity (available in 1.75 fl. oz. / 7 fl. oz.)

The adult Safe Hands come in these flavors and sizes:
•Blue – Clean Linen (available in 1.75 fl. oz. / 7 fl. oz. / 18 fl. oz.)
•Green – Cucumber Mint (available in 1.75 fl. oz. / 7 fl. oz.)
•Unscented (available in 1.75 fl. oz. / 7 fl. oz. / 18 fl. oz.)

Coming soon to the Safe Hands family are: Safe Paws (for dogs), Zen Hands, Safe Tronics (for electronics) and Safe Wipes.

We loved these. These little containers are alcohol free. You can tell the moment you hit the pump that there isn't any alcohol content. The smells are fresh and clean. The bubble gum kids pump made us all want to go and get a piece of real gum. I thought that these might dry out my hands like all other hand sanitizers. I was wrong. Taking care of my husbands grandma 24/7 and having 5 kids I wash my hands alot or sanitize them. My hands are almost always chapped. But these did not dry out my skin like the others. I will probably carry these from now on. I love that they are purse size. I can throw them in the diaper bag or my purse. I also do not have to worry about alcohol poisioning in the kids. My reccomendation is to definately buy some of these and try them out. Especially if you have small children at home or work in a profession where you have to wash alot.

We are going to have a giveaway on here very soon. This will include a Safe Hands 1.75oz pump in these 5 smells. Clean Linen, Cucumber melon, Safe Squirt smells Bubble Gum, Cool Blue and Tooty Fruity.

This is exactly what you will receive in your box from Safe Hands.

I was not monetarily compensated for this review but I did receive one of each of these 5 pumps to try and out and review. Thank you for reading!

Holiday For Kids e-book Review

About the Author
Charles Pascalar is an accomplished and insightful marketer, speaker, and writer. He has achieved success in many fields including a professional sports team championship, TV and radio appearances, leading nationally recognized, retail marketing departments, raising two great children, and being tolerated by a wonderful wife. He sits on numerous retail advisory boards and enjoys playing the piano, writing, dreaming, and traveling.

His personal and professional goals are simply "to make a difference".

This is his first book and hopes it will make a difference in the lives of children and parents everywhere.

You can find out more about Charles on linkedin, facebook, or twitter.

Book Summary:
“Be the coolest parent in the neighborhood, maybe in the world. It’s all in this book and so easy.

Every child and adult looks forward to enjoying the next big holiday season with their friends and family. What if you could celebrate several of those holidays every month with your kids? Give them some fun days that no other children experience. Give them low or no cost holidays that build a stronger emotional connection with them. Make their friends, and yours, look at you with envy over celebrating things that no one ever thought about. In this book, you will learn the most important birthday for your child and cool new holidays like One Day Fun Day, May Day Play Day, Awesome August Adventure Day, January Journey, September Search, Pie Day, Slurpee Day, and over forty others. Plus, learn how to celebrate the more traditional holidays like Christmas, Easter, Halloween, and President’s Day in fun new ways.

Learn bedtime and good-morning songs, how to educate your kids on things even teachers don’t know, and have your kids begging for more. This book took twelve years to develop all those cool things. It’s now available exclusively for you.”

My own words:

This book starts off with a list of the months of the year and the fun things that you can do as a family in those months.
It is also filled with neat things that people probably don't know about certain foods on certain holidays, such as you should not on New Years Eve eat:“Lobster, for instance, is a bad idea because they move backward and could therefore lead to setbacks."

This book was VERY informative and I fully plan of trying some of these neat ideas with my kids this next year! If you are looking for a neat book to read that will give you ideas and cool things to do with your family this is the book for you. You will not regret purchasing this book!

You can purchase this in Kindle, hardback and softback here at Amazon:

Kleenex Slim Pack review

Have you ever been in the car and sneezed, only to find out you can't find anything to blow your nose on? Or you have to dig to the bottom of your purse for that half used piece of Kleenex that you stuffed in there yesterday? It happens more often than you think! We, as woman, generally keep a tissue of some sort on hand. If you are a mom that is more of a necessity that a want. Kids are constantly little booger magnets. Well Kleenex has these new 4 pks of wallet style slim packs. In each of the packs there are 10 Kleenex sheets. with 3-ply white tissues. I am also thinking that Kleenex has a great design team on hand because you can find about any color scheme or design you could want!

My favorite designs so far have been: Tawny Owl, Sugared Lace and Canthus. They are very delicate designs and are very girly. I have 5 children and lately have a sweet little 2 month old for weeks on end, so I always have to have tissue on hand. I used to hate to stuff loose tissues down in my purse or diaper bags for fear of germs and all other such contaminates. But I was excited when they came out with these. When you open them up they look like a mini plastic wallet and each side of the little wallet has 5 tissues.
Kleenex brand also has on their site a place where you can customize your own box. You can do that at this link:
Kleenex has been around since 1924. If you would like to read the story of the Kleenex brand you can do that here:http://www.kleenex.com/BrandStory.aspx
There is also a promotion going on right now called Softness Worth Sharing.
