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!

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.

1. Buy specially marked bundles or boxes of Kleenex® Brand tissue

2. Find the code on the package of Kleenex® Brand tissue.

3. go to www.kleenex.com and enter the code

What's Inside?

The Kleenex® Brand Care Pack includes: lip balm, 1 oz. hand sanitizer, coupon booklet, Kleenex® Brand Share Pack, Kleenex® Brand Slim Pack, and card redeemable to download four songs from up and coming Universal Music Artists including:
