Bailey Berry Shoes Review and Giveaway

Founded in 2010, the BAILEY BERRY™ brand is the culmination of a two year mission to create the perfect kids' shoes. BAILEY BERRY™ is inspired by the vibrant environments of Manhattan, the Hamptons and the Adirondacks. Not wanting to sacrifice fashion for function BB STARS™ are fun and built to the highest quality standards.

A few different colors to choose from between girls and boys. Each set can be: pink, navy, black, red, beige or white.

Each Bailey Berry shoe comes with interchangeable straps for the back of shoe. My son loves that he can mix and match the straps or not even wear the straps at all.

Each pair also comes with their own mesh bag. My son likes to throw his toys in his when we go on car rides. Sometimes is a great bag to throw a few snack in to go to the park.

BB STARS™ are the latest in children’s shoes providing both functional design and fun for kids. This children's shoe is designed to be lightweight and protective. Each pair of shoes has our patented Reversa Strap™ with four different strap designs that kids can mix & match including Navy & White Stars, Red & White Stripes, Multi Stars and Kelly Green & Navy Stars. Children's bracelet and reusable waterproof mesh bag also included. BB STARS™ are designed for children ages 1-8, please click on our sizing chart for additional information.

Bailey Berry™ BB STARS™

Anti Microbial






Reversa Strap™


Made of Recycled Materials

Bailey Berry shoes are made of such nice heavy EVA. (It is a polymer that approaches elastomeric materials in softness and flexibility, yet can be processed like other thermoplastics. The material has good clarity and gloss, barrier properties, low-temperature toughness, stress-crack resistance, hot-melt adhesive water proof properties, and resistance to UV radiation. EVA has little or no odor and is competitive with rubber and vinyl products in many electrical applications.Soccer cleats, are usually made from EVA) These will not fall apart like Walmart shoes do. Very worth the $38 per pair. My kids all hate to wear tennis shoes the warmer the weather is outside, but I hate for them to run around barefooted, so it is super nice to be able to grab these and go!

For every purchase made on BAILEYBERRY.com during the months of April and May, $5 will be donated to The Double H Ranch to contribute to the mission of Paul Newman to give all kids the chance to “kick back, relax and have lots of fun!”

Little Love Buns Review and Giveaway

Little Love Buns

About the Company

Thank you for taking time to check out my products! My name is Dallas and I am the owner of Little Love Buns LLC. I am a proud wife and mother of 3. I started cloth diapering after the birth of my twins. I loved the cute and affordable cloth diapers, and my kids seemed to like them as well! However, I had a hard time finding a detergent that I just loved. I used several of the well known brands, but never found one that took care of all our diaper issues. The smell, stains, build up and irritation are just a few battles I've fought. After tons of research, I decided that I wanted to make a detergent that I would love and that would take care of the issues I was having. So after months of trying different recipes and having other cloth diapering parents try my product, I finally came up with what I thought was the prefect recipe.

One of my children has very sensitive skin and eczema so I wanted to come up with a detergent, wipe solution and soap that would help and not hurt her skin. I found ingredients that blended well together and worked wonders for her. I also found that after using the soap on my hands they stopped being so dry from washing them so often. I pride myself in making almost every product that I sell. I am proud of my product and truly hope that you love them as well!

Each of these wonderful detergents have a different scent to them, but will not harm a child's sensitive skin.

Large Bag
96/192 Loads

Regular Bag
48/96 Loads

Their most popular scents are...
Strawberry Watermelon
Sweet Pea
Pink Sugar
Cucumber Melon
Cherry Almond
Peach Mango

Scents by email request only...
Kiwi-Fruit Berry
Blueberry Cobbler
Tea Tree
Hawaiian Rain
Pink Grapefruit
Lavender Vanilla
Ocean Breeze
Berry Fruit
Thai Coconut

and they even carry special
** Holiday ​Scents **
Apple Cinnamon
Candy Apple
Pumpkin Pie
Country Spice​​​​

When you buy detergents for cloth diapers there are quite a few things you need to remember. It was so much easier to not have to remember all the rules and just buy detergent made for cloth diapers!

I also think it's great that this detergent comes in so many different scents! You certainly can't buy that at the store.

The cloth diaper detergent is a powder detergent that doesn't suds up. The ingredients: Sodium Carbonate, Sodium Bicarbonate, Oxygen Cleaner, Sodium Borate and Fragrance Oil. You can also get the unscented version without any fragrance oil.

I am so glad I got to test out the sweet pea! That is my favorite scent from Bath and Body works so wanted to see if it would make the baby's diapers smell like that. It did! Yum. So much better than nasty diaper smell. Little Love Buns products are not expensive either. As a mom with 6 kids in the house that is a great plus. Dallas, the owner was wonderful in helping me with her site. I had used 1 other cloth diaper detergent before and that was it. She just kind of pointed me in the right direction. I have heard stories of her helping out her customers. There are not many company owners that will take the time that their customers need. She will! I will definitely purchase from her again, when the need arrives.

Glad Rags Questions and Answers

Q: "What are GladRags cloth pads made of? How do they work?"

All of our GladRags are made from cotton flannel and cotton terry cloth. The color pads are conventional cotton flannel and the undyed are organically-grown cotton flannel. GladRags color pads are made of the same type of dyes as your underwear- so if you can wear colored underwear, patterned or colored GladRags will work well for you.

Each GladRags Day or Night Pad consists of one holder and two inserts. The day holder is made of two layers cotton flannel, the night holder has a layer of absorbent terry cloth in it (making it our most absorbent pad!), and the inserts are two layers of cotton flannel with a layer of cotton terrycloth inside of them.

To assemble, slip the inserts inside the holder, like a letter inside an envelope; then turn the pad over (so the smooth side goes against your body and the tag side against your underwear) and snap the "wings" of the holder around your underwear. When you use both inserts, it is a maxi pad. When you use one, it's mini for lighter day. If you are having an extra heavy flow day, you can place a third insert in the holder for a super maxi. It is easy to get the pads clean because you take the inserts out for washing.

Q: "How do I wash these pads?"

A: All GladRags cloth pads come with detailed instructions about cleaning. Cleaning cloth pads is actually quite simple! It's simple: just pre-soak in cold water, then machine wash and dry. There's a great thread in the Mothering community about soaking (or not!) your pads here.

Here are the specifics: remove the inserts from the holder; soak or pre-rinse in cold water (change the water daily). Then machine wash with your dark clothes in cold or warm water. Avoid using hot water to wash your GladRags. Machine dry completely. GladRags can also be safely hand-washed and dried!

Wash your GladRags before your initial use. The pads may shrink a bit in the first washing. If you want to use additional laundry boosters, we recommend Rockin' Green's Femme Rock detergent. Natural enzyme stain removers, like Bi-O-Kleen's Bac-Out and Ruby's Red Wash are also effective- Ruby's is actually specially formulated to remove all blood stains from cloth!

My post, 7 Tips to Make your Cloth Pads Last Longer, also touches on some of the cleaning & care practices that will keep your pads as good as new!

Q: "Are cloth pads sanitary?"

A: Tampons and disposable pads are actually not sterile -- they're just bleached and packaged to seem that way! Sanitary and sterile often get confused- sanitary just means hygienic and clean where as sterile is a medical term that extends much further beyond that. Personally, I trust myself more than I trust some random factory overseas to keep my menstrual supplies clean! Remember the moldy tampon incident? Yuck. And it's not as complicated as it seems to keep your pads or cup clean. If you can keep your undies clean, you can handle reusables!

Q: "How do I use cloth pads during my daily routine? How often do they need to be changed?"

A: Using cloth pads on the go is fairly simply: just bring a small wet/dry bag with you. I have used my GladRags while traveling, visiting relatives, at a previous job in an office building, at networking events, while camping, etc.... And you know what? No one has ever once noticed that I was doing something "different"!

As far as leakage, lots of women find that cloth actually works better for them than disposables. Cloth pads won't bunch, twist, or stick to your leg like adhesive pads can, and they have an absorbent core to keep you leak-free. To stay comfortable and secure, just make sure you change your pad frequently enough (about as often as you would a disposable) and choose the right absorbency for your flow. If you need help choosing, get in touch with us! We know what works and are happy to help find the right pad for you.

Q: "Why can't I just use organic disposable menstrual products?"

While organic disposable pads or tampons may be better for you health, they still create the same amount of landfill waste as conventional disposables. Plus, organic cotton products require more resources (mainly water), than their disposable counterparts. If the organic cotton product is reusable, this extra usage is offset by the fact that it won't need to be replaced immediately. GladRags can last 5-10 years with proper care! However, organic cotton disposables must continuously be replaced, causing vast amounts of resource waste.

Q: "I'd like to but simply haven't made the purchase yet. Nothing is really holding me back besides fear of the unknown."

A: This is something we hear a lot. All I can say is -- take the leap! Stepping into the "unknown" world of menstrual products has changed the lives of so many women... why not yours? :)

Brother's All Natural Snacks Giveaway

Brothers All-Natural Fruit Crisps Review & Giveaway! 

Hosted by:  Momma Lew's Blog

A few years ago when I became a mother, I found myself really taking note of the ingredients in the food I give my children.  Within the last couple of months, I have taken a personal responsibility to put real, wholesome food into my own body.  So, when Brothers All-Natural asked me to review their Fruit Crisps, I felt I could.  

We received a variety pack of Pear, Strawberry & Banana and Apple

I have actually been a fan of Brothers Fruit Crisps for a few years now.  I don't know about you, but when we go food shopping I find that I am grabbing things here & there throughout the store to keep my kids from freaking out.  The fruit crisps are usually located in the front of my store, so I let my children pick out which favorite character they would like to eat.  I swear, you put a Disney character on something and kids will eat it!!! Smart move on Brothers' part for sure!!!  You can choose from Mickey Mouse ClubhouseCars or Disney Princess.  

If you like dried fruit, but you do not like any of the added sugars, then this is a great option for you.  As you can see it only contains "freeze-dried" fruit.  Brothers All-Natural gently removes 95% of the water from the fruit.  Doing so, keeps the fruit undamaged and nutritious.  Freeze-dried fruit has a one year shelf life at room temperature.    

Freeze Dried Fruit is a great option if you or your children have allergies! Because they are 100% natural, there is no added sugars, preservatives or enhancers.  Brothers All-Natural are:
So yummy!

  • Gluten-Free
  • Soy Free
  • Peanut/Tree Nut Free
  • Dairy Free
  • Vegan 
  • Kosher

Being how each  bag contains 2 servings of fruit, I feel really comfortable giving my children a bag of Fruit Crisps as a snack or side dish.  Sometimes on the go fruit can get messy, so this is a great alternative!!  They are very reasonably priced too.  I have seen them between 79 cents to one dollar in stores and usually we finish one bag in a few sittings.

Brothers All-Natural so generously has offered to give one lucky reader a Variety Pack of their Fruit Crisps!

Giveaway open from 4/19-4/26 at midnight!

This medicine was a miracle worker! My daughter got pneumonia and mono at the same time. Then decided to share her germs and everyone in the house got a serious cold. We had high fever, cough, runny nose and headaches. When I remembered I had this medicine I pulled it out and tried it on my oldest son first. He is a big guy and had to take almost 2 of these little cups that come with it. He felt so much better within a half and hour! So decided to try it on the other kids. They could breathe better, headache dulled and cough got considerable better! I hate cough medicines because most of them just make you tired. Or they just mask the symptoms for later. This one actually made you feel better.

We have had no luck in this house finding the right curling iron or wand to make sure that these heads of long hair can be curly and beautiful. We were all so excited when this one arrived hoping that this would be the ONE. So we plugged it in and started using it, without any styling products. It was so fast to heat up! We were used to waiting and waiting. So we started to curl. You could do 1 curl in under 2 minutes! How many of you can say that your curling iron? Can you curl your full head of hair in less than 30 minutes?! I'm not talking the quick run a curling iron through it and off to work. My daughters first homecoming it took us around 3 hours to curl her hair. The curling iron took us forever each curl. This is a professional grade curling iron. Definitely worth the $119! But on sale right now. My girls only use this curling iron now.

The curling part is a nice shiny gold. The handle is black with the dial for settings. The cord is actually pretty long. Another major plus for a curling iron. Most of them you can barely get away from the wall.

When we started using it for her to go out then we used the styling products sent to us. The smells were great not alcohol smelling or too perfume smelling. Each had a pleasant smell to them.

Boogie Wipes Giveaway

Boogie Wipes Review & Giveaway!

Have you ever heard of Boogie Wipes?  I first heard of them when my son was an infant.  A friend had them and said they were the greatest.  Then my son got his first cold and I figured what the heck, I'll give them a try.  They are amazing!  Boogie Wipes recently sent me a few of their products to try and out  and review.  I have never used anything but the Grape flavor, so I was interested to see what the others were like.

You know those moments where your child has a runny nose, you need to wipe it and they just run away?  You end up half wiping their nose and half smearing it across their face.  Now your kid no longer has a yucky nose, but a face full of dried boogers.  Yea, gross.  Well that's where Boogie Wipes comes in.  Boogie Wipes are made of saline, which helps to dissolve mucus, aka: boogies.  It doesn't take lots of wiping  to get the job done.  One swipe and you have a nice, clean face.  A regular baby wipe I have found just doesn't do this type of job.  They're great for keeping noses from getting all chapped and red too!

They aren't just for little kids either!  I personally LOVE having Boogie Wipes on hand when I am sick.  I have found that they are wonderful for a stuffy nose.  I love how they smell too!  The pack is small enough where it fits perfectly in diaper bags, purses & backpacks.

Boogie Wipes are:

  • Made with natural saline to dissolve mucus
  • Great for the common cold & allergies 
  • Extra Soft
  • Alcohol, phthalate & paraben free
  • Available in Great Grape, Fresh Scent, Magic Menthol & Simply Unscented

My 12 year old got to be the tester for this product. She loved them. Although, she wouldn't want to carry one in her purse at school. She loved these for overnight. She said they were stretchy but still snug enough not to cause leakage. She also liked that they were pink! Great idea! When they make them in plus sizes I'd love to try them out!

Daddy Scrubs Tie Review and Giveaway

Father's Day is coming

Product Description

Everyone knows the quintessential gift for every dad is a new tie! Well, we have improved the tradition to create an extra special gift dad is sure to love – and wear!

The fun and playful Wordsearch Daddy Tie is made of 100% printed silk. Each tie comes in a special keepsake box, complete with the quote, “Any man can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a daddy.” Give daddy a tie from DaddyScrubs; he is sure to treasure this gift forever.

Each time comes in a handy gift box. The top of the box has the same design as the tie inside.

The front side of the box has beautiful silver lettering that says "I'm the Daddy". When you open the box (it's on a hinge) there is a saying about being a daddy.

Every Dad needs a tie. Even if they don't wear it. I think every Dad should be able to say they received a tie at some point in their lives. This is such a neat tie to have. There are 2 other ties you could pick from.
If your husband is the classic tie sort of man than this one might be the one for you.

If that isn't the tie for your hubby than what about a little fun with red?

Would also be great if you were due around Valentine's Day!

Daddy Scrubs was brought about by

DaddyScrubs® is the offspring of Robert Nickell, who fathered his first four children more than 20 years ago. DaddyScrubs® was conceived when Robert, who remarried in 2007, discovered he was about to be a father all over again in the fall of 2009!

Not wanting to endure the pains of wearing uncomfortable street clothes while comforting his laboring wife, Robert hatched the idea of creating doctor-like scrubs for himself. It seemed a natural thing for him to do — since Robert is a pharmacist by profession.

To eliminate the confusion between “who’s the doctor” and “who’s the daddy,” Robert fashioned the concept of “I’m The Daddy®” medical scrubs.
