A 500 mcg Vitamin B-12 supplement provides extra insurance that your B-12 needs are met.

Helps convert food into energy
Essential for red blood cell formation
Helps maintain nervous system health
Helps maintain a healthy homocysteine level, important for cardiovascular health

Other Ingredients: Dicalcium phosphate, cellulose vegetable stearin, cellulose gum, silica, magnesium stearate, modified cellulose, and vanilla powder. Contains Soy.

These pills are a very pretty pink color. I also liked that they are not "horse" pills. I used them, and still am, every morning. I did seem to have more energy while taking these. I am glad for that. I am also trying to watch my weight. I was told these are good for just that purpose. When I was pregnant, I was told that b-12 helped with morning sickness. I never did get to try that. Has it ever helped any of you with morning sickness? I'd love to hear.

Eclipse Sun Sleeves




About Sun Sleeves



LogoEclipse® Sun Products were developed by a

Physical Therapist who starting seeing sun

spots on her hands and arms soon after

moving to sunny Colorado from Vermont.

After she made a few pairs of sun sleeves for

herself, her friends started asking for them

and soon friends of friends. It became clear

that there was a demand for this product

from hikers, bikers, golfers and drivers.

I have tried to get my kids to remember the sun screen and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. The sun rays are not good on your skin. But I know with me I hate the greasy feel of most sun screens. With these neat sleeves you get sun protection and still get to be stylish! My 12 year old daughter loves hers. She got the turquoise sleeves. She wore them every time she went out side and loved them so much she even wore them in the house. It is hard to get teens to do what is good for their skin. With these neat sleeves you can get them to protect themselves.

Great for people who need to protect their skin from UV rays while driving, playing Golf, gardening or just being outside. Quick drying, durable, yet thin and stretchy. Eclipse® Sun Sleeves are: made of the latest patented sun guard performance fabric, UPF 50 so they block at least 98% of harmful ultraviolet rays, quick-drying so they're cooling, odor-resistant and dry feel, soft.

My 16 year old daughter has psoriasis so this is great for people with this also. If you are worried about what people will think you can still wear long sleeves in the summer and no one will be the wiser. The material is very breathable. We were all sweating having our garage sale and here is my 12 year old sitting there with these sleeves on. Do not worry about the heat or the UV rays!

http://www.amazon.com/Eclipse-Sun-Sleeves/dp/B007IJWXFG

$26.99 each pair. Sun Sleeves are ambidextrous so do not have to worry about putting on the wrong hand either.

Definitely check them out for their many different colors and sizes!

Kidaroo Crew Sippy Cup Grabbers Review and Giveaway






About Us


Life recently changed for our family due to my husband's disability. So after much planning and praying, this Dental Hygeinist mom of two young children decided to take a leap of faith and initiate this challenging new adventure. With encouragement and inspiration from family and friends, I introduced a new line of award-winning products designed to help make life simpler for parents and caregivers. SippyGrab™ Write On Labels and Snugaroos™ Custom Labels have become the stylish, fun, and smart way to label drinking containers. The feedback has been truly incredible!

As parents, we aspire that our children will endeavor upon great and exciting experiences in life. We put our little boys in sports attire, and dress them in our favorite alumni clothing. Parents love when their little all star gets to play for the league championship. We also love when our little princess takes dance lessons and wants to be a cheerleader. Kidaroo Crew's award-winning designer sippy cup and bottle labels capture the child’s and parent's interests. These designer labels are practical, original, and innovative, and encourage kids and parents to dream.

Kidaroo Crew currently offers ten fun original designs. These creative and attractive designs express artistically the fun side of being a child, and kids love them! Since SippyGrab™ and Snugaroos™ Labels are durable and reusable, moms will save time and money labeling their child’s containers with our award-winning products.

Kidaroo Crew is committed to providing innovative must-have products for parents and caregivers. Designed and developed here in the U.S., our products have been extensively tested and shown to be made of safe FDA compliant non-toxic material; which is Phthalate, Lead, and BPA FREE!

Kidaroo Crew, LLC is located in League City, Texas, just minutes from the NASA - Johnson Space Center.


This is such a great idea! We used to use a sharpie to write on the lid and bottom of the cup itself. Not a cute way to do it but it let people know whose cup it was. These are pretty colorful ways to let people know if it is your child's or another child's. With lots of kids in daycare or church nurseries this is a great problem solver. Our house has 3 children that still use sippie cups. I love that when I put these on the cups none of them can argue...well they still argue, but not over the cups.


The marker they send to mark on the cup grabbers is good. But my recommendation is to use a Sharpie. You can also just order these grabbers to have it permanently engraved. Awesome idea. I only could not do this because I have more than 1 child using these.

They have lots of different designs that you can choose from in boys and girls designs. The colors are bright and cheerful. You should be able to spot your cup right away.

Another great use for these is if your child is in sports you can mark their bottle easy so they can find it.

Each of these 2 packs cost $4.95

Right now they have free shipping on all US orders (limited time only)

Awake Chocolate Review





I find myself dragging most days due to lack of sleep and no energy. I do not drink coffee. Sometimes I think maybe I should make myself drink it, then I change my mind. I love that I can grab an Awake chocolate bar and have the same amount of caffeine that is in just 1 cup. Chocolate tastes and smells so much better than a "nasty" (my opinion) cup of coffee.


I tested these myself and am very pleased to say that when I ate one of these mid morning I had quite a bit more energy. Also, from what I have heard of coffee, I did not have the afternoon slump of needing more. Just one bar got me through the whole day. With a baby in the house and 5 other kids to keep up with this was a blessing! It was nice to be able to get a lot more done around here without feeling sluggish! The calories are not bad either so if you are watching your weight this will not be a calorie overkill.

You can buy these at quite a few gas stations and drug stores. Check out their website go about half way down the page to find the store nearest you. http://www.awakechocolate.com/

Check out their facebook page
https://www.facebook.com/Awakechocolate

Twitter
https://twitter.com/AwakeChocolate

All reviews for this have been super positive!

Each bar is about $2.50 each in Canada and $1.99 each for US. Great price for that day of energy! They have milk chocolate and for those who like extras in their chocolate they have caramel! Yum yum...

Definitely check them out next time you need a pick me up! Chocolate is definitely the way to go!

Future Oxygen Review and Code



About


Do you have a special moment that you would like to celebrate? We believe that too many people let moments pass them by without cherishing it. My husband and I loved our dog, Jeager. When she died, it was very difficult. We planted flowers over her grave marked with a boulder. Having the flowers helped bring positive memories to mind.

Our jewelry makes excellent gifts for expectant mothers, birthdays, graduates, new job, new girlfriend, or as a gift for yourself!

All FO2 products are 100% biodegradable, including the packaging and are available for gifts, personal use, awareness, school/club fundraisers and as promotional items. A portion of proceeds from a selected pendant is donated to a featured community organization. Check back often to see what group is being promoted. Let us know what organization you would like to see!


I love this idea! My husband and I have had quite a few miscarriages and this would have been a nice way to mark or remember them. When you have a miscarriage you don't get a place to visit so your mourning is all "inside". You do not have to use them for a sad occasion. Maybe you could buy one for the birth of a baby or for your wedding. Wouldn't that be neat to 5 years or so down the road and still see that beautiful flower growing.

We received such cute necklaces to test. My girls loved them. Each one of them is so pretty. They could go with anything you wear.



They are so easy to plant also.




All of ours grow into Wildflowers:


shasta daisy sunflower

rose mallow sweet alyssum

baby blue eyes zinniawild cosmos,

purple coneflower wild annual

This is one of the best eco friendly products I have seen as of yet.

Each necklace costs $15 and is well worth the price.

RW. Garcia Review and Giveaway






Healthy Snacking from RW Garcia
RW Garcia makes delicious, all-natural tortilla chips and gluten free crackers. Great for dipping or eating right out of the bag, our chips and crackers are made from the finest ingredients and come in a wide variety of gourmet flavors. From the unique and flavorful Dippers to our MixtBag, RW Garcia chips are the hit of any get together. Snack healthy.

You could say that my family is the best taste tasters for chips. We are constantly on the go. My husband and boys are fishers and campers, so always needing a snack you can take on the move that doesn't go bad quickly.



We got to try a variety of their chips. We did have our favorites. We love cheese dips, salsa and bean dip, perfect for all these types. Plus these chips are Gluten Free and all natural so they are much better for you and your family.

Dippers - 3-Seed dipping chips
Dip into something delicious with RW Garcia Dippers. They’re delicious right out of the bag, but they are also long and thin enough to dip into jars of gourmet salsa, bean dip or tapenade. And sturdy enough to hold up to thick guacamole. Available in six varieties, Dippers are made with all natural ingredients, trans fat free and gluten free certified. View nutrition facts.

The kinds are veggies, curry and mango and savory.

The dippers had a perfect shape for dipping. It is sometimes hard getting the huge triangle shape chips into a bowl. The Dippers are a rectangle shape with a lite slant. Makes the dipping process so much easier and enjoyable, also much less of a mess! Can't forget how yummy they are!

Non-GMO Project Verified
RW Garcia Dippers are verified by the Non-GMO Project as meeting or exceeding GMO avoidance standards.

Each bag is around $3 each.


MixtBag® Family Value Pack
RW Garcia MixtBag Family Value Pack combines two of our quality all-natural tortilla chip selections into one bag for a snack the whole family will love. Available in three varieties, Yellow/Blue corn tortilla chips, Yellow/Red corn tortilla chips, and NEW! Salsa Yellow/Blue corn tortilla chips, the MixtBag offers a great snack that is completely wheat and gluten free, contains no Trans Fats and is made with all non-GMO ingredients.



My girls favorites were the blue chips mix and the red chips bag. They thought not only were the colors fun but they tasted good too. We have Mexican night quite a bit in our house and these are a yummy and fun side dish/ snack. Also great for sloppy nacho night!




30 years ago, RW and Margaret set out to make the best tortilla chip the world has ever known, a snack that was as healthy as it was irresistible. They invested every dime they had (and some they didn’t) and started selling chips to retailers out of the family van.

Today RW Garcia products are available throughout North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. And two generations of Garcias work in the family business.

Birthday Times Review



This is a neat personalized newspaper article on the day of your birth.




Mine told about how the president came to visit me and wished my parents a good like for their new baby, it also told of other famous people that shared my birthday. Some I had heard of some I had not. The other articles on the page were about what was happening in history at that moment. Baseball, presidency and lots of other things.

The Birthday Times was printed on pretty stiff paper. Great for framing. This would also be a good thing to give as a gift. I think it would be neat to have one made for every person in your family and then framed on the wall.


I was excited to do this review as I have not done anything like this before. I'm glad I got the opportunity.



If you would like to find out about them just Google The Birthday Times.
