This website is so easy to maneuver.


This really is a pretty neat idea. It would make the perfect picture gift for grandma or aunts! Remember Mother's Day is also coming up! Get such a neat gift for the puzzle lover in your family. This company went out of their way to fix the issue when my puzzle came in damaged. It didn't even seem to be their fault. This company goes far beyond to help their customers. I love that the puzzle does not just come jumbled in a baggie. What you get is a cardboard box with the picture on the front, that you have chosen for your puzzle. The puzzle pieces are nice hard pieces. We took this right out of the box and put it together. I chose the big pieces so that there wasn't anything that could be lost. With 6 kids in the house that is important to me. The picture on the front of the puzzle is perfect. I think if I bought one for a gift though that I would purchase a big one with lots of pieces. It would be more of a challenge. I am happy that I got to do this review. I hope that you take the time to check out their site and possibly buy a nice gift for someone!

Sabi Chop Pill Cutter Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Product Description
Different people split pills for different reasons: some pills, especially daily vitamin supplements, are so large that they can be difficult to swallow whole. Oftentimes, pills come in only one high dosage version and you need to halve or quarter them to get a lower dose. Others split pills because it’s more cost effective, since higher-dosage pills frequently cost the same as lower-dosage ones.
No matter the reason, if you split pills regularly you have likely encountered many pill splitter pitfalls. When we began to investigate the task of splitting pills we quickly realized that this seemingly trivial task is actually riddled with problem.
We wanted to create a superior pill splitter. We designed a pill splitter that can split all pills of any shape or size, cleanly, accurately, and easily. It employs a non-steel/non-razor durable plastic poly blade so it’s safe and won’t easily wear down. And you don’t have to worry about it rusting if it gets wet so it’s easy to clean.
We made it adjustable to all pill types, easy to hold and press, and at the same time fun to use and beautiful to look at. We hope that when you use CHOP, you’ll get into the ritual of snapping your pills to size and use the moment to stop, breathe, and think on the importance of your health and the time you invest in ensuring your healthcare is accurate, non-wasteful and… just plain fun.

These Sabi products are so easy to use. This Chop pill cutter is that way also. Just open the lid, stick the pill on the padded spot and close the lid with a hard push. Breaks the pill in half.

Just $9.99 for this CHOP


* Weight: 34 g/1.2 oz
• Dimensions: H: 50 mm x W: 55 mm x D: 38 mm/H: 2 in x W: 2.2 in x D: 2.2 in
• Ultra-safe and effective, durable plastic poly (PCTA) blade
• Pill splitter's specialized inset rubber impressions stabilize pills of all sizes and shapes
• Light press pill splitter mechanism distributes weight applied to cap evenly
• Easy on hands/wrists no matter “hardness” of pill material
• Halves and quarters pills cleanly and precisely to ensure accurate dosage
• Slip-preventing rubber base
• BPA-free

Poplets Snacks Review and Giveaway

Poplets are the bomb! We absolutely loved these snacks!

We got to test out
Sea Salt and Butter.

This one was my ultimate favorite one! It tasted like buttered popcorn at the movies. BUT, the Poplets are a much healthier treat.


No greasy residue is left on your hands after you eat, either. That is a plus for me.

$12 each for a pack of 8


Asiago Ranch

This one was like eating ranch flavored Doritos or corn nuts. But still much healthier! These were my 13 year olds favorite flavor. Great flavors with bursting corn taste.

2.7oz Bags Pack of 8 for $12

Our patent pending process produces perfect crunch, locking in all the goodness. •The heart of the kernel, a soul full of taste
•Super-convection baked, never fried
•Satisfying crunch without the harshness of other corn kernel snacks

Chile Picante

Spices and flavors abound in this flavor! My husband downed these before I could get pictures of these ones. The flavors that come from this one is great. They did an awesome job making this one. It isn't too spicy that you can't enjoy but you are not eating a kids flavored chip either.

I will definitely be buying more!

There's a new corn nut in town! 7x softer CRUNCH lets you REDISCOVER corn nut snacks. POPLETS are satisfying little NUGGETS of corn kernel goodness with far less fat and more fiber so you can crunch away fear-FREE. Poplets® the LITTLE crunch with BIG flavor.

Look for these in your local grocery isle.

Dial Deep Cleansing Hand Soap Review and Giveaway

Experience a new level of hand washing with the New Dial Deep Cleansing Hand Soap. New Dial Deep cleansing Hand Soap is the latest Dial Brand hand soap bringing luxury to your hand washing experience. Each of these premium soaps feature vibrant scents, gentle micro-scrubber formula that smooths and moisturizes the skin, and a completely new design that adds personal style to your home.

The puzzle in our house was which scent is liked best? There is Water Blossom

Water Blossoms is a beautiful blue that is what you would think oceans should be. It has a fresh scent to it. I thought it would smell like flowers. I was pleasantly surprised! It was inspired by aquatic botanicals.

Each of the soaps has skin conditioners that help moisturize your hands. Most soaps dry out your skin but Dial Deep Cleansing Hand Soap does not. Each one of these also has a micro scrubber in it. I thought maybe they were exfoliating beads. But it does leave your hands feeling smooth and refreshed! No need to lotion when done.

Yellow Raspberry and Black Sugar has a tart citrus scent to it. It is yellow like lemons.

My 13 year old daughter has had strep 4 times recently and tonsillitis a couple times also. They are going to be removing her tonsils soon but we have to keep her well. So until then we are antibacterializing everything. Dial is the perfect soap for that. We use Dial as our family soap of choice! It keeps the germs to a minimum.

Each bottle has the soft colors that hopefully with add to any d├ęcor. I proudly display my bottles. My mom used to make soap bottle holders for the ugly bottle of dish soap and such. I wouldn't even think of covering these bottle up. The Water Blossoms has a pretty delicate flower on the front, great for a personal bathroom. The Yellow raspberry or Coconut Lime Verbena would be great in the kitchen to go with all the fruit products.

The Dial brand provided me with this sample of Dial Deep cleansing Hand Soap in exchange for a product review. However, all the opinions expressed here are my own. Thank you for reading!

Purex Crystals Limited Edition Fabulously Fresh Scent Review and Giveaway

NEW Purex Crystals Limited Edition Fabulously Fresh is the latest Purex Brand laundry enhance bringing a fresh sensation to your laundry experience. This limited edition bottle and scent will add a colorful escape to your laundry day.

My house smells AMAZING!! Purex and all their scents float through the house on a daily basis. I received this Fabulously Fresh Scent and it is yummy smelling! Very fresh and clean. I'm sad it will be a limited edition scent and it truly does make your clothes keep their wonderful smell a very long time.

I think this retails for around $4 depending on where you shop. This wonderful bottle was released in March. I'm not really sure how long it will be out so run and get a bottle now.

You might be wondering if this is safe for all you types of laundry? Guess what? Go ahead and us with children's sleepwear, delicates and with your child's sportwear. Definitely used with a football player and volleyball player and cheerleader in the house. No more after smells from BO soaked armpits.

How does Purex Crystals work?

Add Purex Crystals at the start of the wash cycle with detergent—no need to wait for the rinse cycle or use messy "softener balls" to get great freshness. This way it spends more time with your laundry, infusing it with fresh scents that can last for weeks, not days.

Are Crystals safe to use in any type of washer?

Yes, Crystals are specially designed for use in both traditional and high-efficiency (HE) washers. Just add them directly into the washer with laundry before you start the wash.

Purex items are also great prices compared to most other laundry detergent prices.

CRUSH Minimal effort pill crusher with pill box inside the cap Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Product Description
CRUSH is for people who don’t like taking pills or who have difficulty swallowing them and instead choose to crush medications into a powder and ingest them in food and drink.
Most pill crushers on the market require repeated twisting and untwisting to get the job done, and can be very difficult on the hands. In addition, most pill crushers out there can only crush small pills and cannot handle turning larger pills into powder. Finally, we couldn’t find one single pill crusher that doubled as a pill box.
So, we created a pill crusher with real muscle that does most of the work itself and is ergonomic and easy on the hands and wrists. CRUSH quickly and effectively crushes all tablet types of all size, shape, and texture. And it’s a self-contained, all-in-one crusher-and-case.
CRUSH is easy to clean and fun to use. We hope that when you use it you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how little it makes your hands work. We hope it will inspire you to take a moment to stop, listen to the snap and crunch, and appreciate the strength it takes to stay healthy.

CRUSH is made by Sabi:

This was fun to use! Plus, very effective!

For those who can't swallow pills this is the perfect fix. It can also be carried with you anywhere you go.
The Sabi pill crusher has a small compartment up top to store your pills in.

Just unscrew the top blue piece from the bottom white piece, throw the pill inside

Screw the blue lid back on and voila! You now have the crushed to a powder pill. Just add to water or juice or even, for kids, applesauce.

Perfect if you have to hide meds in food also.

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.

Bebe Bella Crinkle Toy Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

This crinkle is a neat thing. It came in the mail and was about the size of a quilt square. I truly thought "hmmm, is she really going to play with this"? The answer is "YES". Our little girl loves this Crinkle. She loves to rub it on her face the most but they she thinks the crinkle noises are fun. It will be completely quiet and you will suddenly hear this sound. If you have any Fisher Price toys most of the baby ones have sensory noises. This one has that crinkle sound that some have. But I have to say that the Minky texture makes me want to wrap up in it! It is SO soft! Your child will love it!

So you have a child who has autism or any sensory need? This would be perfect!!

We have a friend with a sweet little boy who has Downs Syndrome and he loves the feel of different materials. These items have been mentioned to her to look into.

Each Crinkle toy is $12 but if you check the bottom on this blog post it is free today only

Sensory Development…Serious Play!
March 11 2014, 1 Comment

Sensory development is all about the growth of the five senses: hear, taste, touch, smell and vision. Senses will grow/change through the end of a child’s second year.

Why is sensory development so important? When it comes to developing the senses there’s a domino effect. For example, if an infant’s hearing is not fully developed her speech and language development can be gravely impaired.

Ever wonder why babies always seem to be placing their hands and anything they can grab in their mouth? Infants’ mouths and hands are especially sensitive. In other words, they are busy developing their senses of touch and taste.

HIP HIP HORRAY…it’s time for PLAY!

Bebe Bella Designs is excited to offer you FREE Crinkle Toy! That's right, we are giving away our crinkles! Giveaway starts March 11th and runs through March 31st or while supplies last. Shipping and handling fees do apply. Enter coupon code "freecrinkle" at check out.
