Compac Baby Buddy Safety Shape Butterfly Appliques Review and Giveaway

Safety Shape Butterfly Appliques

These appliques came with a paper to peel off back. Nice heavy plastic. After you peel just make sure you stck these on a clean dry surface. It was so simple to do. I set them in the place I wanted, pushed on them to make sure nice and stuck, then stood back and looked at the nice job. These not only help you from slipping in the shower but also are pretty. It is scary to almost slip in the shower or bath tub. The surface to these is grated so as to keep you on your feet and not your tooshie. There were 10 butterflies in the package. Enough for a small shower. At only $4.99 each that s a good price and if you need more than 10 will not break the bank. I love this company! They have so many neat products for your child. Definately check them out. Also their stuff if very affordable.

Other designs this company has in the safety shapes are Blue and Red ABC's/123's, White Frogs and Orange Goldfish. The ABC ones would be great in a childs bathroom. What a way to learn.

Smart Bottoms Cloth Diapers Review and Giveaway

Back when I was born my mom was givin the gift of a diaper service. All she had to do was set out the diapers for the company to come and they would bring her replacements. But it was all the white, boring diapers with pins and plastic pants. Wow, have they come a long way! You should see the designs and different ways for them to use the cloth diapers through lots of sizes. It is great. I got this cute purple Smart Bottoms diaper to test. It is a shiny purple with lime green snaps. It can grow with your baby. I LOVE this option. It is the very first cloth diaper I have tried. I was apprehensive at first. When I was a nanny, the couple did cloth diapers, I was constantly doing the wash for them. You had to soak and then wash and then air dry. All seemed royal pain. We still buy disposibles but I tend to grab for the cloth diaper when I go for a diaper. The designs are endless. When you put the diaper on just snap across belly to the correct size. You want to make sure that the elastic aroumd the thighs is nice and snug. I wash these in the sink, by hand. I have used Rockin Green detergent before. These also come in great scents. You should check out Smart Bottoms if you would like to find some cute diapers, in great designs. Each diaper is anywhere between $16 and $23 each. If you check the prices on how much you would save I think you would be in shock. It does take a little bit more to cloth diaper when you are on the run alot. You need to make sure you carry a bag for the wet diaper. But really little more work or little more money in your pocket? Which would you pick?

About Smart Bottoms

Smart Bottoms is more than just a business, it is a passion. Behind every cloth diapering mom (or dad), there's a story. A story of why they chose to go against the majority, why they chose the healthier, more environmentally friendly, or cheaper option. We want to be a part of your story!

I started Smart Bottoms because I am passionate about cloth diapering. It is a choice that my husband and I made with our second child, and have not regretted for a single day (even the messy ones)! Smart Bottoms offers an organic cloth diapering system that is 100% made in the United States. Our high quality products are available at a reasonable price, so all families can provide the finest for their little ones.

Many families in America are missing an entire generation of cloth diaperers. Parents who were cloth diapered, were undoubtedly diapered with old fashioned pre-folds, pins, and “rubber” pants. Let Smart Bottoms show you what today's cloth diapers look and feel like. Let us show you how easy, healthy, and inexpensive it is to cloth diaper your baby!

Happy Diapering!

Demon Book Giveaway

Demon, Book Two in the Dark Musicals Trilogy, inspired by Sweeney Todd is available now!


When Justyn and Rebecca set off for the New York School of
Performing Arts, they think their dreams are about to come true. To their
dismay, they aren’t in high school anymore, and the competition is steep.
Rebecca must compete against accomplished singers for a role in the production
of Demon Barber, including a stunning Gothic diva with her sights set on
It doesn't help that things keep disappearing from their
apartment or that Rebecca's father refuses to accept that Justyn is an
essential part of her life. Yet, all this seems minimal in comparison to the
serial rapist terrorizing the campus.
Consumed by fear and obsessed with revenge, Rebecca and
Justyn start living the story of Sweeney Todd—both on and off the stage.
 Head to face book to join the Demon Release Party.  You can also add Demon to your shelf on good reads.

If you haven't read the first book in the series, now is a great time to get your copy. To celebrate the release of Demon,  Phantom is now on sale for only $1.99 exclusively on Amazon!


Phantom, Dark Musicals Book #1

The “Phantom” was a musical phenomenon that Rebecca had always found
enchanting. She had no idea that her life was about to mirror the play
that was her obsession. When her high school drama club chooses
“Phantom” as their annual production, Rebecca finds herself in the
middle of an unlikely love triangle and the target of a sadistic stalker
who uses the lines from the play as their calling card.

Rebecca lands the lead role of Christine, the opera diva, and like her
character, she is torn between her two co-stars—Tom the surfer and
basketball star who plays the lovable hero, and Justyn, the strangely
appealing Goth who is more than realistic in the role of the tortured

Almost immediately after casting, strange things start to happen both on
and off the stage. Curtains fall. Mirrors are shattered. People are
hurt in true phantom style. They all seem like accidents until Rebecca
receives notes and phone calls that hint at something more sinister. Is
Justyn bringing to life the twisted character of the phantom? Or in real
life are the roles of the hero and the villain reversed? Rebecca
doesn’t know who to trust, but she knows she’s running out of time as
she gets closer and closer to opening night. Only when the mask is
stripped away, will the twenty first century phantom finally be

With 6 kids in the house that is important to me. The picture on the front of the puzzle is perfect. I think if I bought one for a gift though that I would purchase a big one with lots of pieces. It would be more of a challenge. I am happy that I got to do this review. I hope that you take the time to check out their site and possibly buy a nice gift for someone!

NeaterFeeder Giveaway

tish collage neater feeder

Great for your furry friends

Do you have a pet food mess problem? Does your pooch or kitty get their food on the floor?

Here's the solution...the Neater Feeder!

Neater Feeder keeps your floor clean. Any food or water that spills stays in the Neater Feeder itself. That saves you from cleaning up any yucky pet food that would usually get on the floor. I only have a cat, but I can imagine the mess a big dog could make. The Neater Feeder protects both the floor and the walls if you have a sloppy eater.

This product is for both dogs and cats. Just like pets that come in different sizes, so does the Neater Feeder. Whether you have a Chihuahua or a Great Dane, there's one that's just right for your pet.

I already have a filtered water bowl that I use for Tish, so, I use my Neater Feeder just for food. I put wet on one side and dry on the other.

The Frugal Fairy gives the Neater Feeder two thumbs up. ;)

Stay Connected with Neater Feeder: Website | Facebook | Twitter | YouTube


Five Lil Bass In Tow has teamed up with The Frugal Fairy to bring you this awesome giveaway!

One lucky winner will get a Neater Feeder of their choice. 18yrs+, US only.

Speedy Flyer Game for Android phones

Sometimes the simplest of games can be the best! In Speedy Flyer you just tap the screen of your android device to move the worms. The idea is to avoid the squares or blocks that are in the way. I didn't get very far the first couple times that I played. Although my 12 year old daughter LOVES this game. When I handed her the phone to play the game for the review, it took me forever to get my phone back. Literally this is very easy looking game but you get fully addicted trying to get more and more points each time you play. I kept laughing when I crashed my worms. I would say this game is for kids ages 6-adult. Go get this game and enjoy!! Go get some worms.


Link to Google play store


Game description from Play Store:

Behold our new creation - funny game Speedy Flyer! Ideal mix of entertainment and reaction test. Game is running around two naughty worms with jetpacks flying headlong through the Universe to infinity and beyond. The goal of their crazy journey is known by nobody but them. But it’s not important for you because your task is to help brave worms to overcome their way.

Since first minutes of the game you will see that despite of simple one-tap gameplay it’s not so easy to become a master. If you’re looking for a good game that will improve your reaction skills and occupy your free time - then that’s it! So do you wanna try how many scores you can get and how much time you can overpower these dashing worms? If you are ready then fasten your seat belts and let’s go - Speedy Flyer welcomes you!

Throw one of these neat pouches in your purse, in your diaper bag or even your briefcase. each pouch ives you 80% of your daily needed vitamin C. Both kinds of pouches are 100% fruit!

My oldest daughters favorite was the Berries and Bananas! The boys mostly went for the Mango one. Maybe it's a boy thing. We loved them. Great for all ages!!

About Them

Like any busy professionals with demanding jobs, we spend loooong hours camped in our offices with fewer and fewer breaks for proper meals. Of course, vending machines full of candies and jars stuffed with cookies were always around to silence a hungry stomach. The office kitchen would also have some fruit but no one knew when it was brought in and the brown spots on the apple were less reassuring. Our wish was simple. Why can’t we have a healthy alternative snack that tastes good, that is full of nutrition and is prepared in a way that’s easy to carry and enjoy whenever, wherever we needed it? The answer was fruit.0! A delicious, organic fruit snack with none of the artificial stuff. We absolutely enjoy these snacks and we hope you do as well.

PaperSalt Books Review and Giveaway

This book is a neat addition to any teen girls book shelf. It has great words of encouragement. I love that it also leaves you room in the margins to write your own thoughts. I know that most girls like to be able to write down how they are feeling. This allows them to.

Being a Teenage Girl


The Things Mom Wants You to Remember

This is a "living book" for teenage girls to reference, write in, and refer back to often. Topics include doing the right thing for others, telling mom you love her, self confidence, taking care of body and mind, and simple things to remember during the stressful teenage years.

50 Page 8.5x5.5" wire-o book on heavy-weight uncoated cover stock.

These journals are not the cheaply made journals most girls have. The chipboard is heavy duty, even the paper is sturdy. Each page is lined, with little "warm" comments. Here these journals have been used for school work. Subjects that they are working on, they put the important items in the book. Once in awhile I even find a doodle on their pages.

"Me" Journal


Purple, Orange, Gray, Green, Teal

"Sometimes I just need a place to write..."

100 Page Journal for Girls with Inspiring Topics and Quotes

100 Page 5.5x8.5" wire-o book on heavy-weight uncoated cover stock with thick chipboard back.

Are your children getting to the age of asking questions about politics they hear on tv? Do they want to know about presidents and bills? I have 3 children at that age. I use this book for home school purposes. My 16 yr old and 12 yr old daughters have fully benefited from this book. Although, I have to admit, I did too. If you are a home school mom or a teacher this would be great for your class. This book discusses in easy terms the parts of congress, the terms of office and the qualifications to become president and more. Definately a must have book.
It is very well put together. Nice hard book with spiral bound flip pages. Vibrant colors to keep your childs attention.

Voting and the US Government


A Book So the Rest of Us Can Understand

This is maybe the book we’re most proud of. It covers everything from the Declaration of Independence up through modern government in a simple way that all kids, teens and adults will enjoy. They’ll be much more informed now, and much more prepared for their adult lives. “Pretty much everyone in America should read this book.”

Mom's Choice Award winner.

46 Page 8.5x5.5" wire-o book on heavy-weight uncoated cover stock.

They have so many really neat books for boys, girls and even the whole family books. Great site to look through.

Baby Magic No Rinse Wash Review and Giveaway

Baby Magic is definately a well know baby brand. They are not just baby wash. This company makes laundry detergents, diaper rash medicines, baby shampoo and even baby lotions. I like the smell of this product. Baby Magic has been helping families since 1951. This is the best product for parents on the go. Does your family travel alot? Do you go camping during the summer? Or does your child simply spit up a lot? Our family does all 3 of these things. I like for the baby to stay clean. It is nice to be able to throw this bottle in the bag and go. We can clean her at any point and time, without having to stop and run a bath. This does not take the place of a bath, but is great for the inbetween. Baby Magic no rinse wash is also great if you have changed a diaper and don't have any anti bacterial on hand. Just rub it on and off you go! All Baby Magic products are gluten-free. Imagine my suprise when I found that out?

You can purchase Baby Magic at these locations online:

One 7 oz bottle costs around $5.99.

Product Description
You're on the go solution to keeping your baby clean, fresh and smelling great. Our wash is specially formulated for baby's sensitive skin and the self-foaming application allows you to clean your baby's hair or skin without using water. Now you can keep your baby clean even when you are away from home.

Cushy Closers Review and Giveaway

Cushy Closers are great for all doors. For use on childrens bedroom doors so you can check on them when napping without waking them. Great so that kids can't get stuck in rooms they have gone into and shut the door behind themselves. There are quite a few uses for these Cushy Closers. For example, we use our Cushy Closer to keep the door to the bathroom open slightly at night. I sleep with the bathroom light on so I can see baby at all times. The Cushy helps keep the door open the perfect amount. We had used quite a few items to get the door open the perfect width. This did the job.

Darlene and Gail (inventors of cushy Closer)had the perfect idea. The simplest of products can be a huge life saver. I can't imagine how many childrens naps have been spared. This product is a little rectangular pillow with a "rope" on each end to wrap around the door knobs. This keeps you from having to turn the knob to open the door. It's design is made for use over and over again. We wash everything like this by hand. The colors seem to withstand washing. Just hang on the knob to dry till next use. Speaking of colors, these sisters have made some really cute designs. There are boys, girls and neutral designs. They also have College teams to choose from.

Each of these cost around $9.95 each. Would be great for baby shower gifts!

I heart Keenwah review and giveaway

most snacks are like first dates. scrumptious at first. disappointing later.

now imagine your perfect snack match. it tastes great. it stays with you through the rough times between meals. it takes care of you.

meet quinoa (pronounced keen-wah). its known by the andean peoples of south america as the "mother of all grains," and touted by health experts as the only whole grain that's a complete source of protein containing all nine essential amino acids. it makes for a delicious and fulfilling snack when we mix it up with other all-natural ingredients.

so stop dating snacks, and fall in love. we guarantee you'll join the many already saying "i heart keenwah".

about them

iheartkeenwah was started by four friends: fiteh, ravi, sarah, and terah. after touring bolivia and learning about the versatility of an awesome little seed called quinoa, we returned home frustrated by the lack of ready-to-eat quinoa options. we decided to do something about it and got to work in the kitchen, mixing quinoa with other all-natural ingredients to craft a crunchy, sweet treat that satisfied our cravings.

creating a ready-to-eat quinoa snack made us really think about what is important to us about the food we eat. we want short ingredient lists that we can recognize and understand, not ones crowded with chemical names. we want minimally processed food that maintains its nutrition content. in short, we want real food, not laboratory food. this is the essence of what iheartkeenwah is creating.

chocolate sea salt

we call this one our decadent flavor.
almonds + rich dark chocolate + sea salt = let's get it on.
one taste of this bad boy and you're going to be begging for more.

ingredient list: organic quinoa (whole grain quinoa, quinoa flakes, quinoa crisps), almonds, tapioca syrup, dried cane syrup, honey, organic dark chocolate (organic dried cane syrup, organic chocolate liquor, organic cocoa butter, organic soy lecithin (emulsifier), organic vanilla), almond oil, baking soda, salt

Other flavors they carry are Cranberry Cashew, Ginger Peanut and Almond. All of which sound quite yummy!

We loved this treat. It had a sweet covering on the nut cluster. The bit of chocolate drizzled on top was a good suprise. I have to say the bag could have been bigger. We were all like "hey I want more". Do you want a treat without all the extra sugars and ingredience you can't even pronounce? This is a wonderful after school snack, a treat for field trips or just a treat to sit and eat while watching tv. Once you try I Heart Keenwah you will want more.

You can buy at Abe's Market, or online. The cost is $59.88 for 12 bags.

Their return policy: If for any reason you are not satisfied by your iheartkeenwah product, please contact us to return the product and/or receive a full refund.

You will not want to return these treats....

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

So I have 3 girls with long, thick hair. That is not including my thick head. So I thought ok, we would like to give this a try and see if it really does work! So we received this brush in the mail. The top is smooth plastic. The bottom has special bristle on it designed to eliminate those nasty knots. My middle daughter loves this brush. She said she loved how it went right through the knots. No need for the scrunched shoulders and the eyes squeezed shut gritting her teeth. She also loved how smooth it makes her hair. My youngest daughter also loves this brush. It easily fits in the palm of your hand. I have found them both repeatedly brushing their hair throughout the day. I think your daughter or even son will love this. My 5 year old son loves that this brush is even easy for him to use also. Glad to find a product like this.

Magically gets rid of knots. Not to mention complaining.The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted.

Each brush is between $14.99 and $19.99.
