TuTu Fabulous Review

My girls love to be princesses. Tutu's and beads ad heals are something that is always wanting to be worn. I usually have to tell them to change before they leave the house. Sometimes I give in and let them go to the store in their princess garb.

My 9 year old is slightly chunky and these skirts were perfect with the adjustable waist. We also put on the baby, pulled the string and it fit her too. The tutu says that it fits up to a 10 year old and I am thrilled to say that my 12 year old was able to fit it also so everyone got to play princess. The skirt is very well put together, not some cheapie item! Are you looking for pieces to a costume? they have some great tutu's made in designs for different characters.

Nuby Bedlite Buddies Review

Does your little have a problem with the dark? Being in the dark by yourself at night is scary for lots of ages. my 9 year old has been found snatching this to sleep with. She loves the night light and the music. It is soothing! The baby loves the music feature the best but I am sure that as she gets older the night light feature will become a good part of her routine also!

As you can see the baby loves this toy.

She is only 8 months so hasn't exactly figured out how to squeeze it to make the Bedlite Buddy work, but is vey happy to let her siblings do it for her. The music that it makes is not the same over and over again. It plays a couple different musical numbers.

The Bedlite Buddies™ are GREAT cuddle buddies. Their faces light up and sing when you hug them! They like to go to bed on time and get tucked-in. Bedlite Buddies™ are made of soft and colourful materials that stimulate your child's senses. The built in night light brightens up the face, bringing a smile to your child.

Nuby has a frog, a turtle and a bumble bee. Each of them so cute and cuddly. If it get a little dirty just take a wet rag to it and then let it dry. The material dries really fast. The material being a quick dry is also good for teething little ones. Our little one puts everything in her mouth.

If you open up the Velcro on the back of the Bedlite Buddy there is a white box. On the box are 3 different stages to put it on. The 3 are play, demo and light. If the batteries run out all you need to do is unscrew a piece on the box and replace the batteries.

Each time that you push the middle of the Bedlite Buddy the light stays on the whole time the music is going.

I love these. Much better quality then the glow bug that we used to carry around, in my opinion. Ours is played with every day. It is worth the money if your child loves musical toys or light up toys.

You can purchase these on Amazon for $28.79

Nuby Step Up Stool Review

This Nûby™ Step-up Stool has a No-Slip Top and No Skid Base that adds to the sturdy and convenient design. It holds up to 800 pounds and is perfect for getting to those hard to reach places. Textured surface provide the necessary grip for safe usage, and it is small enough to store discreetly.

I received this product during our rummage sale. I say that so you understand the picture I'm posting. I read all the information on the stool, when I did I saw it held 800lbs. I truly didn't believe that. 800 lbs is ALOT! So I decided to get at least half of that and see if it really held.

This held my daughter and I and could have held a couple more of us. The legs didn't bow or even move. I am very impressed!

The colors are vibrant on these foot stools. You can get blue, red, yellow, green. Each of these have colors that are said to last forever.

There are a couple cute ones for boys and a couple cute ones for girls. My 9 year old daughter loves this. She is short like me and has a hard time reaching things above the bathroom sink. She now can reach. I don't hear her screaming from the bathroom for someone to help her get the toothpaste anymore. The step stool is also slip proof. Each stool is around 16-$20 each.

Great product for bathrooms, kitchens and even bedrooms. Any room that you need to reach something that is not just in arms reach.

Action baby Carrier Giveaway

Like I've mentioned before, I love carriers because they eliminate the need for a stroller on short trips. The Action carrier allows me to travel with my 4-year-old without the need for a stroller. My 4-year-old is very independent and loves to walk but when we go to Disneyland or fairs he gets tired of walking by the end of the day. It's nice to have the Action carrier on hand so he can hitch a ride or take a short nap.


Action makes a variety of carriers made for babies or toddlers. I have the toddler carrier which is 3 inches taller in the body than their regular carrier, as well as offering an inch longer hood and 2 inches smaller in the shoulder webbing (because they are used mostly for back carries and gives you a tighter fit). The base of the “seat” is 19 inches across. All of the webbing on the toddler carrier is the same as their standard carrier.

The Action carrier has held up very nicely. I feel like my child is safe and secure. I especially love that it can hold a child from 15-45lbs! That's a lot of weight and a great work out for mom or dad! The Action carrier has a clip that sits just above you hip to alleviate the tension on your shoulders.


And a chest clip that helps secure the carrier and not having the shoulder straps slide off your shoulders.


The flip hood that is attached is nice but my son is so tall that it didn't fit over his head. Another thing I wish it had is a storage pocket of some sort. I love to travel light and don't always like to carry my purse. But the over all look, feel and function of the carrier meet my expectations.

Want to win a carrier of choice!

Raise Armpit Stain Remover


Pharmworks LLC is a manufacturer dedicated to providing innovative lifestyle solutions for home and family.

is a powerful pre-treatment, laundry stain remover that will make sweat stains disappear! This innovative solution targets and dissolves yellow armpit stains without ruining clothing.

Not all stains are alike -- unsightly stains produced by body sweat won't come out with standard stain removers or even bleach. When it comes to discolored perspiration spots, bleach actually sets the stain making it permanent.

This tough formula works on lifting and dissolving sweat stain deposits and even works on old stains and ring around the collar.

In these challenging economic times, is a frugal way to extend the life of your favorite shirt or blouse.

Are you tired of throwing out your husbands under shirts because of the nasty armpit stains? Hate that your favorite white tee has stains and bleach won't take them away? If you have bleached your shirt the stain is stuck. But catch it early with Raise Armpit Stain Remover. It is so easy to use. This product is best used by pre treating the effected area, rubbing together (or using a small brush) and letting it sit for 15-20 minutes before laundering. I presoak our cloth diapers so this is not an extra chore for me. If you want to make sure you are preserving those clothes it should be easy A lot easier than always buying new clothes.
RAISE can be used on colored clothing however you MUST spot test to ensure colorfastness.
When testing the product make sure to use on stains that have not been treated with bleach. Bleach is the worst product to use on armpit stains as it reacts with the proteins the stains making them PERMANENT..

Each container costs $12.50. It's a nice size container also. 12 oz! http://www.armpitstainremover.com/collections/laundry-pretreatment
