Zoobies & Cash giveaway

I'm sooo excited to be working with this giveaway!!! 

S.O.S. Mom and Real Momma have decided to not only spoil your little one with this giveaway event, but to spoil you as well! Now we know what you're thinking... this giveaway is getting more and more exciting! This giveaway is made possible by our amazing sponsors, Zoobies and The Bunny's Reviews, who are respectively offering one Zoobies Blanket Pet, valued at $29.99, and $55 Paypal Cash! What a great prize to start off the new year! 

Zoobies was created by two young brothers who shared a common desire to invent something that was fun, innovative and functional. Coming from a large family of nine children, they saw the need to consolidate what one could bring on long road trips and family excursions; something to make life easier for mom. Zoobies stands by a "Three C Mission"; Convertible, Comfort and Convenience. Zoobies products are designed with MOM in mind. The 3-in-1 functionality means less clutter whether at home or on the go. When you have a Zoobies product, you have more than a plush toy, more than a pillow and more than a blanket. Zoobies products have transformed the plush world. The wonderful surprise factor comes through in all their products, which is why they exceed mom's expectations. They rate their products' cuddliness level in terms of squishability, an expression they coined as a measure word to describe just how extremely soft and snuggly they products are. Not only do their products provide the warmth and snuggles that kids need, they also provide the emotional comfort and security of that "favourite cuddly toy". Their line of products include the Blanket Pets, Book Buddies, Duffel Dogs, Storytime Pals, Blankie Babies and Slumber Pets.

Review by S.O.S. Mom: "I discovered Zoobies through a fellow blogger friend of mine. I had heard of the 3-in-1 plush toy before but never actually had the chance to come across such a toy. When I started reading up on Zoobies through their website and discovered their wonderful world, I really fell in love. They offer products for kids of all ages and have an impressive variety to choose from. The Zoobies Blanket Pets have a selection ranging from the wildlife collection, the barnyard collection, the bug collection, the safari collection and the zoo collection. I was truly lucky to be sent the Bubba the Bear Blanket by Stortz & Associates Inc. They are Canada's leading importer and distributor of Eco Friendly Toys, supporting retailers in this fast-growing market, and are also the source for especially unique and fun toys which are regularly featured by the media. Myself being in Canada, they were able to send me an item on behalf of Zoobies. Seeing how we received the Zoobies a few days before Christmas, we took the decision to throw it in as an extra Christmas gift. Why not make Christmas even more fun and magical right? But I think I came this close to keeping it for myself! In all honesty, the Zoobies Blanket Pet is unbelievably soft and cuddly. The first thing that I took note of was the striking quality of it. I couldn't get over how every inch and every detail was perfectly thought of and made with such love and care. The pillow is perfectly sized for any child to lay there head down comfortably and when unwrapped, the blanket is also of ideal size to cozy up in. Another fun feature is the fact that, once opened up, the blanket can be separated from the animal, allowing the child to play freely with the plush toy while being snuggled up in his blanket! Very neat! Now, when my son opened his gift on Christmas morning and discovered Bubba the Bear, he greeted him with the most warmest and heartfelt hug you would ever see! He then pulled away and gazed at Bubba with such love, it was tremendously adorable. I must say, Bubba is now part of the family and will undoubtedly be tagging along on many family adventures. Not to mention the new role of bedtime companion he has taken on! I personally think the concept of this blanket is truly and remarkably sensational and is really a great item for kids to have. Knowing how children grow fond of plush animals and sleeping blankets, these loving plush animals combine both in one and offer that great growing-up companion children seek. The picture hereafter bears true testament to the level of cozyness and comfort the Zoobies blanket brings to a kiddo! If you haven't gotten your hands on your Zoobies blanket, now is the time! Visit them on their website to get all the details and view all the terrific products they have!"

This giveaway is open to US residents only and will be open for entries from January 4th to 13th inclusively. One winner will win the total prize package valued at $84.99, which includes a Zoobies Blanket Pet (winner gets to choose model) and $55 Paypal cash! Please note that the money will not be rendered any other way than via paypal. To enter, please fill out the following form. 

Good luck and happy New Year to you all!

Goody Quik Style Brush Review

Stats on the brush from the Goody website:
Go from wet to beautifully styled hair faster than ever! Super absorbent microfiber bristles remove 30% of water as you style*. It's like a towel and a brush in one.


• Absorbent microfiber bristles remove 30% of water for faster styling
• Antimicrobial microfiber keeps the brush fresh
• Side Vents for maximum air flow
• Lightweight design to reduce hand fatigue while drying
• Ergonomic handle is textured for extra grip

*In laboratory testing, the Goody QuikStyle brush removed an average 30% of water from hair across a variety of hair types. Results vary upon usage.

Use your Goody Quik Style paddle brush as you would use your usual brush. To help speed your styling routine, the brush is designed for detangling wet hair, quick removal of excess water and stuling with or without a hair dryer.

Your Goody Quik Style brush will air dry following use. A blast of hot air fromyour hair dryer will speed the drying of the microfiber bristles. The microfiber bristles are protected by antimicrobial properties to inhibit the growth of mold and mildew from forming on the brush.

After a few uses, the microfiber bristles may begin to look a little flat. Gently run a comb through the bristles to remove exvess hair, then wash the brisles with warm water and shampoo. To refresh the microfiber bristles, turn brush over )bristles facing down) and tap the back with the palmof your hand to get the bristles to stand in place.

My review:
I have 3 girls with longer hair not including myself. This brush has been an absolute life saver! Now it doesn't replace the blow dryer, by any means, but it does a great job also. For best results we have noticed that when you wash your hair make sure to ring out all the water and towel dry to the best of your ability. When your hair is no longer dripping, then go ahead and start brushing out your hair like you normally would. It is soo nice to not have to wait till your hair is fully dry to be able to brush it. I don't always have time to wait. Now you can brush and go! The blue soft sponges that collect the water dry pretty quick. Depending on where you buy this brush it runs anywhere from $11.29-$16. It is worth the money involved. Definately go buy yourself one!

*I was sent one of these to test and review. Would you like to find out how to get some of these neat items go to Influenster to get items to test and review. I received this in my vox box

Salted Caramel Mocha Cookies-Recipe

Ingredience needed:
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
3/4 cup white sugar
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup International Delight Salted Caramel Mocha
1 cup whole wheat flour
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips
1 package (8oz) chocolate toffee bits
sea salt flakes, for dusting

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars. Add oil, eggs, vanilla, and International Delight. Mix well.

In another bowl, combine flours, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt: gradually add to creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and toffee bits. Chill dough for 1 hour-this will make the cookies "melt in your mouth."

Shape into 1 inch balls. Place on ungreased baking sheet and flatten with fork. Sprinkle with a few flakes of sea salt. Bake for 12-14 minutes until lightly browned.

Makes 3-4 dozen

I was sent recipe only through International Delight and Cravebox to test and try.

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.
