Ozeri WeightMaster Digital Bathroom Scale, with MICROBAN® Antimicrobial Product Protection





Ozeri was the first company to have scales with microban. Microban is antimicrobial technology that inhibits the growth of odor and stain-causing bacteria. When you step on the scale barefoot this is a good thing! No one wants a stinky scale or one that gets all weird look from the grease on your feet. To clean the scale, use a damp cloth. Do not soak or submerge the scale in water or liquids. Don't expose the scale to moisture. It will void the warranty.

Ozeri was a great company to work with. I had an issue that I'm sure was in the shipping not with the company and yet they were quick to fix it. I love this scale. It even has a back light so that you can see it in the dark. I have been really watching the things that I eat. I had no way to find out if I had lost any weight except when I took my kids to the doctors office. I was excited when I got to test this scale. It lights up, so you can check your weight in the dark. It checks your weight fast, no more waiting till the scales decides to calibrate. I have been able to check the amount of weight loss at home. It is always better to weight yourself on the same scale, and definitely in the morning before you eat or drink anything. Ozeri is definitely the company to buy from. The cheaper scales do not usually last very long but Ozeri lasts and even has a warranty.

The scale features the industry's largest blue-backlit LCD with xBright technology for easy-to-read results from afar.
Ultra sturdy scale combines ABS slip-resistant material on the outside with 6mm impact-resistant tempered glass on the inside.
Step-on Activation captures the precise weight measurements upon stepping on the scale (no tapping required).
Auto-calibrated and automatically turns off to conserve battery life. Runs on 2 AAA batteries with a Low Battery Indicator (batteries included). The battery included part was great! How many times do you receive products in the mail and no way to use it till you go buy batteries. I hate that. Ozeri had that covered!

This scale can hold up to 330 lbs. Do not attempt to step on if you weigh more than this.

Use on carpet will cause scale to not register your weight correctly.

Each scale comes with a 1 year warranty. If you would like to contact Ozeri's customer service: 1-877-299-1296. Or you can email them at support@ozeri.com




You can buy this on Amazon for $29.99
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007Z4AT0A

or

Through Sears for $60.00

PSC Calming Formula for large Pets




 






PSCPets Calming Formula for Dog


We got a chance to try PSCPets calming formula for
large breeds.  
 


What’s in it? Well from their website it says .. 


PSCPets Calming Formula contains a combination of
nutrients that support balanced behavior, promotes relaxation, and reduced
hyperactivity in your choice of a tasty soft chew or chewable tablet.




Active Ingredients per 2.75 gm tablet


Lecithin.......................150 mg

Ginger..........................50
mg

Valarian Root................50 mg

Thiamine (Vitamin B1) 35 mg
 
 
Sale Price About $17.00 for 60 chews
 


 


We have a GSD his name is
Buck.  When we first got him our first
impression of him was WOW his dog is a grizzly bear! … and he is very
vocal.  He whines about everything, play
with me, sit with me, and feed me.  You
name it he whines.  We were told our vet
about it and she said that Buck has a mild case on anxiety.  He feels the need to be around us, and when
we go (anywhere) to the kitchen or downstairs he feels like he is being left
behind. So when we were given the opportunity to try the calming formula by
PSCPets I was interested.  




It also:



  • Support balanced behavior, promotes relaxation, and reduced
    hyperactivity
  • Helps animals relax and quiet down, reduces irritability and
    anxiety
  • Easy to use, poultry liver flavored, chewable tablet
  • Veterinarian formulated
  • PSCPets brand products are backed by our 100% satisfaction Guarantee!
    You may return the product any time for a full refund of the purchase price
    (excluding shipping charges)








 
 
 
 
 
 


Buck loved the calming chews,
it was like he was getting a little treat and did not know my hidden
agenda.  We tried these chews for about a
week to 10 days in the evening.span style="mso-spacerun: yes;"> 
At night
is when he has most of his issues because everyone is going in different
directions and he cannot be with us all. 
The calming chews relaxed him, and it seemed like he was more chill
about the situations going on around him. 
I am not sure about the dose recommendation though, we gave him one pill
for two nights and nothing but when we started two a night is when we saw the
biggest improvement.  This would also be
good if you had to take a long road trip or even on a vacation.  (we went to the Grand canyon in 2011 and this
would have been great).

THE LOVABLE LABELS STORY


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------




It is said that necessity is the mother of invention and this proved all too true for Laura Porreca, Owner and President of Lovable Labels.



When Laura’s first child entered daycare, she was told to label all his belongings. This meant labeling everything from his outdoor clothing, to his indoor shoes, lunches, sippy cups and backpack. Laura recognized a need in the market for personalized labels that were tough and durable and could stand the test of time and the everyday use that children put them through.



After researching and testing many different products and designs, Laura created a line of labels that include Regular and Slim line Stickers, Shoe Labels, Iron-ons and Bag Tags. They are not only bright, fun and colorful but also met the high standards that parents have come to expect. The Regular and Slim line labels are microwave and dishwasher safe, the Iron-on labels stay put in the washer and dryer, the Shoe Labels have an extra strength adhesive to ensure they won't come off and the Bag Tags are made of a durable and flexible plastic.



In 2003 Lovable Labels was born!



Today, the company continues to grow and offer exciting opportunities for its team of sales agents. Laura also feels strongly about giving back and has incorporated fundraising into the Lovable Labels company. Schools, daycares and camps use our labels to raise funds for extra-curricular activities while providing a practical and useful product for parents and children.


My girls have even used these to put on their tablets so that no one takes off with them.

Beatrice Munson by Lorena Bathey Book Review and Giveaway





Beatrice Munson



It is an uplifting story about women who have found that their world has become small and their happiness and importance is not at the forefront of how they live. It is a story with humor, fun, love, friendship, and lots of interesting twists and turns.



Lorena Bathey did an AWESOME job is portraying to her audience the lives of these women. Each of them has their own story. The lives of these ladies in the beginning had become dull, boring and mundane. Lily was a neat freak who took it to the extreme and neglected family to make sure things were perfect. Marissa a divorced mom of 2 that seemed pretty miserable with the life she was living. Then a whirlwind, blast from the past moves into the neighborhood and it all starts to change. With the moving in of Beatrice, the lives of the women are about to change. Beatrice brings with her an air of freshness, boldness and bright colors. She is a single lady with flair, who is wanting to adopt a child. Lily finally finds herself, Marissa finally finds the man of her dreams, Andrea becomes a great owner. This is a definite read! I am a big reader of young adult books but this was a perfect read. I loved getting into each other the ladies lives. I really got to know each of them. I understood them. Lorena did a great job of letting us into their lives. Read this book and see if it doesn't let you see some things in your life could be different. I know that it made me look inside and see if I was really doing what I was meant to be doing.

Safety Tat Giveaway

Great giveaway by my co-blogger check it out!



Being a family of five
we are always on the go.  If it is not a
school function or sport than it is something else.  Usually on weekend when the weather is nice
you will catch us outside enjoying nature or going to our local Zoo.  SafetyTat is making those outings a bit
easier.  If you know you’re going to be
in a crowded place say a Zoo or an amusement park SafteyTat is a wonderful tool
that will help the child get back to you. 
I have drilled my kids on phone numbers and address, but let’s face it,
if they are freaking out because they are lost who to say they will not
remember those all so important phone numbers.




 I am not going to lie; about two years ago we
went to the renaissance festival here in town. 
We go every year and most seasons we go two or three times.  We were with our other family members and in
total there was about 16 people in our group. 
9 of which were children.  While
playing games and watching shows one of the kiddos (my 5year old) wandered off
and was out of my sight for about 4 minutes. 
That was the longest 4 minutes of my life let me tell you.  I got this awful feeling in my stomach and
was flipping out.  He was found safely in
the care of security less that 25 yards or so from me. We were so grateful.


I know what you’re
thinking…shame on you Mom.  Your right shame
on me, but it does happen and when and if it does are you prepared.  We have tried bracelets, we have tried
remembering the numbers, we have even tried all going in the same colored
shirts so that we can identify our group. 
SafetyTat so far has been the best tool I have seen to help in this
situation.  


Here is a bit more
about Safety Tat from their website.


An Idea is born!


The
idea for SafetyTat temporary
child ID tattoos
was born of necessity one weekend at an amusement  park. On Labor Day Weekend, Baltimore Mom,
Michele Welsh and her husband, there with their three small children, felt
out-numbered. To stave her panic, she quickly wrote her mobile phone number on
each of their arms with a ballpoint pen. As she did this, she thoughtfully
explained to each of them the importance of staying close to Mommy and Daddy.
She also told them that if they were separated that the number on their arm was
a way to reconnect with them.


Throughout
the day of fun, Michele had to rewrite the number several times as it smeared
or washed off. Several parents in the park stopped her to ask if that was her
number on the kids' arms. Each time, they loved the idea.


The
day was a success and the idea for SafetyTat temporary child id tattoos was born.
 
 


 


What
a great idea right! Well that idea is now a reality and you to can find comfort
and know that when you go out with your kiddos or a large group you can use
SafetyTat to bring the kiddo back!
 
 
Or you can get them with
your phone number printed right on them like we did.  We tested them out at the Mall and at the
recent Pet Expo that we went to.  They
stayed on the whole day and did not come off. 
Matter of fact it has been two weeks and one of my kiddos still has a
SafetyTat visable, and has learned his number just by it being there. 



 
 




I
hope you give SafetyTat a try, they are a really cool idea and so glad we have
come across them.  Thanks SafetyTat for a
great product and for letting us try and review.

PB Crave Giveaway






Hosted by Momma Lew's Blog




Who does not like Peanut Butter?!  And of course there is the infamous sandwich - Peanut Butter and Jelly.  Well, PB Crave has taken a whole new spin on peanut butter combinations.  PB Crave has created peanut butter with a twist - chocolate, cookie dough, banana and raspberry!  PB Crave so generously sent me one of each to sample and write this review for you!





I have been a fan of natural peanut butter for years now.  To me, there is nothing like the taste of JUST peanuts.  And guess what is in PB Crave?  Peanuts and other natural ingredients.  No scary words that I can't pronounce.  Phew!  If you ever have tried natural peanut butter before, you know that when you open up the jar, it needs to be stirred.  Over time, the oils separate.










PB Crave to me seems more like dessert!  YUM!  When you open up a jar of your new favorite peanut butter you immediately are overtaken with a strong, robust flavor.  You can immediately tell you are dealing with a high quality product.  They are each so creamy.  Even with all of the decadent flavors, there is still less calories, fat and sugar than the jar of my conventional peanut butter in the cabinet.









So what's in each jar!?







Razzle Dazzle - a blend of red raspberry, wild honey, white chocolate and dark chocolate





Cookie Nookie  - a blend of chocolate chips, cookie dough flavor, wild honey and premium peanut butter





CoCo Bananas  - bananas, cocoa and wild honey blended together





Choco Choco - A double dose of semi-sweet & dark chocolate with premium peanut butter and wild honey





Our personal favorite??  The CoCo Bananas!  Although Cookie Nookie was a close second!





A delicious snack! Peanut Butter is loved by almost all the younger kids.  

Not only does PB Crave make delicious peanut butter, they are socially responsible too.  They are committed to making the world a better place through Project Peanut Butter.  A minimum of 2% of the profits from every jar of PB Crave peanut butter goes directly to Project Peanut Butter, a non-profit organization focused on treating malnourished children.  Did you know that around the world, malnutrition is the leading cause of death for children under five?
















PB Crave is going to give one lucky reader a Choco Choco and CoCo Banana Variety Pack ($20.97 plus shipping value)!  This giveaway is open to readers 18 and older who are in the lower 48 United States.  Enter through the Rafflecopter below!

Lady Walton's Cookies Review



These are such a unique looking cookie. They look like 2 waffles with a creamy treat inside.



The one that I got to test was the White Chocolate Amaretto. It was really good and very sweet! This would have been really good with a mug of warm hot chocolate. These are a great treat for moms to hide. Yes I have to hide my treats! With 6 kids in the house if I don't hide my treat they just mysteriously disappear.





Their award-winning chocolate-filled butter wafer cookies bring smiles all year long. Be sure to see the Lady Walton Gift Collection, the Bronco Bob Specialty Foods Collection, and the Bronco Bob Gift Collection.

ESC Chocolate Bars Review and Giveaway



OUR STORY

Endangered Species Chocolate was born out of a desire to make an impact on the growing number of plant and animal species that are disappearing from Earth. With interests rooted in a deep love of chocolate making, Endangered Species Chocolate set out in 1993 to source natural, ethically traded chocolate as a carrier for an environmental message. Through the crafting of premium, thoughtfully sourced chocolate, Endangered Species Chocolate generates funds for conservation efforts worldwide.

OUR NAME SAYS IT ALL

“Why is your company called Endangered Species Chocolate?” We get that question a lot. See the sea turtles, chimpanzees, butterflies and rainforests on the face of our chocolate bar wrappers? Every time you purchase a bar, you raise support for species and habitats worldwide. Each year, Endangered Species Chocolate donates 10% of net profits to environmental non-profits that are focused on wildlife conservation and habitat preservation. Want to learn more about the species you are helping? Look inside each wrapper to learn more about the threatened species featured on your chocolate bar.




I love what this company has done. I love that there is a purpose. They are helping the endangered animals. If you check out the cute animals on the front of the wrappers, each one of them has an endangered animal on the front. When you open the wrapper there is a really neat feature about that animal.
Each bar is also "separated" into nice bite size pieces to break apart. I loved this option because there are 7 people in the family who can eat chocolate and we were able to share. The chocolate was smooth and creamy.



Each 3oz bar costs $2.99. Also check out their so cute gift sets!

Wholly Guacamole and Jennie-O Review and Giveaway





How Wholly Guacamole got started:
You’d probably think a guacamole company’s story would start with an avocado tree. But our story starts with a man named Don Bowden. In 1989, this Dallas restaurant owner started to look for a pre-made guacamole to serve in his Mexican restaurants. His biggest problem was that avocados start to brown as soon as you cut them open.

Don knew that solving this problem without using lots of additives and preservatives would not be easy.

But Don doesn’t do things the easy way; he does things the right way. In his search for the best guacamole, he discovered High Pressure Processing (HPP) Technology.

When used on guacamole, the end result is a completely 100% all natural, fresh tasting product.








My husband loves guacamole! I was excited to become a Wholly Guacamole Blogger! My first blogger experience with them was a really cool chance to put Wholly Guacamole to the test it with Jennie-O Turkey Breast!



There are a few different kinds of Wholly Guacamole. There is original which has a classic guacamole taste. The perfect addition to any sandwich or side of chips. This box comes with 2 single packages. Nice so that you don't have to use all at once.

A classic for a reason.

Just the right amount of spice and garlic, this guacamole is sure to be a hit with everyone. Real homemade guacamole taste! You would never add chemicals or preservatives to your guacamole dip, so we don’t either. Stays good in your freezer for up to 3 months. REMEMBER! Even when thawing, keep the product refrigerated for food safety!




There is spicy Wholly Guacamole. This one packs a powerful kick! This one is great for those fans who like things a little on the warm side. My oldest son is a fan of all things spicy, so this is right up his alley. This one also comes in individual packets. This one doesn't come in 2 though, it comes in 4.


Wake up your taste buds!

A spicy 100 calorie treat you can take anywhere. If you like spicy guacamole as much as we do, this is the best guacamole for you.



I really wanted to try the Wholly Guacamole Salsa but neither Walmart or Price Chopper had it. Guess next time I am out I will have to see if Hy-Vee carries it.



Jennie-O turkey breast fresh from the deli section was delicious! We love fresh Deli meats, so we got to pair up the 2 and it was yummy! My son had toasted bread with Jennie-o turkey breast and spicy guacamole.



My husband had toasted bread with Jennie-o turkey breast and the original guacamole. Each enjoyed them so much they asked for a 2nd sandwich!





The Jennie-O turkey breast had great flavor. Our store did not carry the frozen turkey burger patties but I have heard that those with the guacamole were just as yummy as the turkey breast! I will have to try them when I find them.

We had enough guacamole that we were able to have on the table at a party we had. The Wholly Guacamole went like wildfire!



If you want a good treat to have with chips or a sandwich this is great and very healthy!

Ingredients:
Hass Avocados, Jalapeno Puree (white vinegar, jalapeno peppers, salt), Dehydrated Onion, Dehydrated Red Bell Pepper, Jalapeno Powder, Salt, Granulated Garlic




They also have Ranch, Homestyle and Organic. More great flavors for us to try!

Procter and Gamble Household Review





Helps relieve dry, tight and itchy skin.

Gillette Irritation Defense Soothing Moisturizer contains a specially formulated active soothing complex® with a touch of aloe that hydrates to help restore moisture and soothes the just shaved skin. The unique formula is also lightweight and easy to spread, so it will leave your skin feeling smooth and comfortable.



This was a nice product. My teen son liked this a lot more than my husband but there is a reason. My husband has psoriasis so his skin tends to be a lot more sensitive then most peoples. The smell was nice. Manly but not overbearing.

Stop stains on the spot.

Tide to Go is the #1 instant stain remover* and helps remove some of your toughest fresh food and drink stains.

*Based on sales.

How it works
1. Remove excess residue from the stain.
2. Press the tip onto the stain several times to release some stain remover solution onto the stain.
3. Rub tip gently across the stain to remove it. When necessary, add more liquid and continue rubbing gently.
4. Important: If treated area will be exposed to direct sunlight, wipe with a damp cloth or napkin to remove excess solution left on fabric.
For tough stains, place a paper towel under the stain while treating or wipe excess liquid or residue away with a damp paper towel, or reapply as necessary.

Before any product can appear on store shelves, it must be demonstrated safe to use as intended. But that is only the beginning of our journey. The Earth's resources are limited and valuable, and we have an obligation to future generations to use these resources wisely.


I haven't not gotten the chance to use this product out of the box yet. But my mom uses this and swears by it. She has been very impressed with it's stain removing action. She carries them in her purse.

Cover Girl Outlast Double lip shine




Meet the dynamic duo of shine! One side delivers opalescent color with serious staying power, the other lays on a liquid gloss, for shimmering color that lasts up to 10 hours.


My 2 teen girls stole this from the box before I even got a chance to look at it. I looked great on them both. Very glossy and not at all greasy. This is a great product for teen girls. I lasted quite a while.





Five Lil Bass In Tow was sent these products from She Speaks. I was not compensated in any other way but the box of goodies.
