Every Beauty Review




This set came at the perfect time! It is getting to be flip flop and bare feet weather. I like to have my toe nails painted and my heals to be soft. My daughter was so gracious as to give me a pedicure.



We used the foot smoother
normal price $4.99 but is on special for $3.99 at this time.
http://www.everybeautybrand.com/Store/index.php/every-beauty-flexible-foot-smoother.html

Quick Overview



Removes rough, dry, cracked skin through a Medium Dermabrasion Coating on both sides. Its foam core acts like an orthopedic pad to custom form to your foot allowing all of the surface area to contact and exfoliate your foot. Restores skin’s natural softness. Its flexibility allows you to access hard to reach areas, like near and in between toes. It will also form to your knees and elbows to remove dry skin. MADE IN THE USA

My daughter kept using this on my heals and repeatedly saying "mom your heals keep getting softer". It is a piece of pink foam with a great course side and a fine side. You can even use this wet! Very easy to clean all you have to do is wash in hot water and let dry. Do Not Use if you have diabetes or poor blood circulation.




After we used the foot smoother we used the 3 in 1 nail file. You can use it as to make your nails any curved top you would like. It can even make it straight across.

Each one of these is normally $4.99 each also but on sale for $3.99

http://www.everybeautybrand.com/Store/index.php/every-drop-beauty-3-in-1-nail-file.html

Quick Overview


Available in bubble gum pink, snow white or green apple.Ergonomically designed, long lasting straight stainless steel nail file that turns into a curved stainless steel nail file. Files nails to any shape including Flat Tips, Rounded Corners and Pointed Tips.


Available in 3 colors


*Packaging may vary




We even tried this on my acrylic nails. It did really well shortening down the nails.

I had pretty toe nails and feet when it was all done. I'm so glad we got to try this.

Nuby Tickle Toes Hippo Review

The baby loves this toy. She wasn't the only one though. We took this with us one day for Bible study and all the little ones in the nursery loved pushing the button and listening to the hippo laugh. The hippo entertained the kids for quite awhile.



I love to see her face light up when we bring this toy out! It is made from a very soft plush material. Some push, noise toys are hard to get it to make the noise, but these are so easy our 5 and 1/2 month old can do it. Usually she does it by biting it but she can still get it to play.

Such a great toy for your little one.

My youngest daughter was super thrilled. The goggles have quite a bit of a plastic on each side to let out if need be. She has sort of a big head so we let out a bunch and they fit her nice and snug like goggle should. I wish I had a water proof camera. She was having so much fun getting to see under the water.

2 Red Hens Diaper Bag Review and Giveaway




Looking for unique?

Looking for convertible? (from diaper bag to purse?)

2 Red Hens is the site for you! I love my Pink Lemonade Rooster bag!



each bag comes with the cutest diaper changing pad



The changing pads are the perfect size for those Walmart changing stations.

The straps of the bags are removable with clip links.

These are very handy if you don't want to lose your keys n your bag just clip them on the handle and you are good to go. Bath and Body Works hand sanitizers are also a perfect fit for the handles. The front of the bag has 3 slip pockets. I usually slip my cell phone in the smaller one. keeps in safer than tossing it inside. The inside has a bottle pocket, zipper pocket and 2 small adjustable sleeve pockets. I love that the outside of the bag is made of a water resistant cover. So easy to clean. I have 6 kids in the house so that is a major plus here! I cannot express to you how well this bag is put together. The strap links, the seams the material, all strong and pretty to carry. The straps also make a good teether. The baby loves the straps. I have to constantly take them away from her as the roll it's in feels good on her gums. I am able to get quite a bit in this bag. I do not close the top. I carry a thick wallet, leather calendar, 3 diapers, a Huggies diaper wipes plastic pack, 6 pens, a small make up bag, a coupon baggie, daughters inhaler, plastic formula holder, a bottle, Nuby toys and a couple other things and it all fits. Nothing hangs out the top.



I have been asked numerous times where I got my bag. They have such cute designs.

Each Rooster bag with diaper changer runs $50

2 Red Hens also carries cart covers and a really neat item called a Toy Nanny.



You really should check them out!

Tortle Review and Giveaway





Nobody wants their beautiful baby to have an issue with a flat head. 1 In 2 babies end up with a flat head. This can cause developemental delays, life long problems and trouble with binocular vision. But the good news is that it's preventable. Because babies skulls are soft, yet heavy and necks are weak, infants are vulnerable to developing this condition in the first few months of life. This is why, proper movement and deliberate repositioning your infant directly from birth is one of the keys to healthy development of your infant.

Read what every family needs to know about flat head syndrome. Hear directly from parents, physicians, and midwives.
http://www.tortle.com/faqs/

Babies spend so much time, in the first year, on their back. But this will help you to make sure your baby does not get a flat head.



How Do I Use It?

• Put the beanie on your baby when she is lying awake (such as on the floor or in a bouncer or swing), sleeping with your supervision, or traveling in a car seat or stroller.

• Align the support roll behind one ear, then at feeding time, switch sides so she doesn’t begin to favor a position. Tortle is not intended for overnight use.

• If your baby has developed some flattening or plagiocephaly, use the Tortle to position the head preferentially to the other side. Once the flattening has improved, then return to alternating it side to side.

• The patented support roll aids in repositioning: it’s firm enough so she won’t roll over, and soft enough to encourage natural, comfortable movement.




The Tortle repositions the babies head. Place the roll next to the ear on one side and then roll to the other side during intervals during the day. If your baby is developing or is born with mild flattening of the skull, place the support roll on the flat spot to prevent her from lying on it until her head shape improves. See your doctor if you have concerns. Great product.




Dr. Jane Scott is a Board-Certified Pediatrician, a wife, and a mother of four. She’s also the inventor of the Tortle, a breakthrough beanie designed for supervised use in infant carriers such as car seats, bouncers, strollers and cribs

Order 2 Tortles, so you can wash one while Baby wears one!
Solid white with opening to secure optional headband or clip-on flower
Best for use during first 6 months of baby's life
95% cotton/5% spandex
Machine washable

Sizes:
Small (0-2 months/5-10 lbs./13-15" head circumference)
Medium (2-4 months/10-15 lbs./15-16.5" head circumference)
Large (4-6 months/15-20 lbs./16.5-18" head circumference)


Each Tortle costs $19.99

The Tortles come in classic white, sweet pink flowers, and whimsical elephants. They also carry interchangeable headbands which cost $12 each.

The baby wears this all the time. She looks so cute! You do not have to compromise your child's "style" These are cute, stylish and help your child all at the same time. Don't risk the long term health issues.

When I Fall In Love by Clint Morey




This is the 2nd Clint Morey book I have gotten the privilege to review. I love his writing style. I especially like that his books have a Christian perspective! It is nice to read a book without all the foul language and other "adult" context.


We just got done taking care of my husbands grandma who had advanced dementia, so parts of this book really hit home.

The book is about a family who has to come together when health issues strike their parents. The main character Amy, her grandparents are devout Christians. Each of their children seem to have fallen away from their faith and beliefs. Amy believes that she is in love with this boy at home. The story follows her as she volunteers to stay and help her grandparents out while the grandpa recovers from his "illness". I believe that this is a story all young adults should read. Family should be the most important thing in life besides your personal walk with the Lord Jesus Christ. I love how Clint makes sure that you get involved with his characters. You seem to feel what they feel. Your heart follows them on their journey.












Blurb

It must be nice to have the perfect plan for your life.

Amy Prescott is just your ordinary, everyday high school senior — beautiful, brilliant, athletic, able to pick the hunk of her choice, and a scholarship to Harvard nearly in her hands.

Okay, maybe not so ordinary.

She has her life planned out and it’s an exciting, adventurous plan. She can hardly wait for the next step.

But when she’s forced to care for her grandparents in Montana during Christmas break, Amy finds her orchestrated world is about to snap. She’s stuck with a cantankerous grandfather who doesn’t want her help, but needs it because of a stroke, a grandmother who is the sweetest thing ever, but suffers from Alzheimer’s, and family members out to protect “their share” of the estate.

Grandpa, a master cello maker who can no longer do his craft, reluctantly shares with Amy the story of his great adventure – how he met and won the heart of his wife in Vietnam.

But Amy has more immediate concerns. Is her boyfriend dating someone else when she’s not around? How can she fend off the Montana boy who has taken an interest in her? And then there’s that Harvard thing.

Amy doesn’t need any of this. Not now. Her life is planned. It’s a perfect plan.

At least it was.


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Power Capes Review and Giveaway





My youngest son has always been infatuated with super heroes! Superman, Batman, even Spiderman. He would run around with blankets or towels tied in a knot around his neck. We couldn't keep him from jumping off couches and chairs!


Why Soar?

The Superfly Organization of Active Recruits (SOAR) Superhero programs was developed to encourage kids to SOAR! We get kids to use their imaginations through fun games, puzzles and activities and then get them out and active in the real world. No more couch potatoes here!

With the access to so many different types of electronics it has become easier and easier to be inactive. Being outside and staying active helps raise healthy and happy kids. We want all kids to be healthy and happy, so we developed the SOAR program to encourage that.


What you will receive your first month for $24.99 is
Comic Book

•Trading Card

•Mission Card

•Sticker Sheet

•Mission Book

•Official Superhero Certificate

•SUPERHERO CAPE! (Pink, Blue or Green)

Lets your child run with their imagination! You can also add an initial to the cape.



Sticker sheet



Each cape is so soft. Cape has a silky look to it. Just like all the great super heroes your child looks up too. The top has a piece of Velcro to latch around the neck of the child.

Having a child's super hero birthday party? Wouldn't it be neat to give one of these capes out to each child as a party favor?

My sn tells everyone he is an official Super Hero, he uses his blue Soar folder as his badge! Too cute!




I love the Soar program through Power Capes! You can buy 1 month or buy the package for 12 months. This is a great program. You should check them out.
