Are you looking for a nice armband for your exercise routine? This is a great one. The only problem I had with this is that it didn't fit my upper arm. I am a big girl. But it didn't fit my 6ft 3 son either. So I used my eldest daughter for the review. It fit her nicely. Now, you can use this on your lower arm also.
Since she just had her baby she will be happy to have a holder for her phone while she works out. The case fits perfectly on my Samsung Galaxy 5. The top of the phone holder has 2 slits, 1 slit for the headphones and 1 slit for the speaker. You can not charge the phone while in the armband. But you don't really need that option, in my opinion. On the arm part there is a spot to hold a key. Great option so that you don't have to carry a full keychain to go jog or workout. The color is bright, which I love. There are other color options for you to choose from.
You can purchase this Running Band through Amazon for $7.99
Samsung Galaxy S5 Sports Armband by i2 Gear
If you've ever been out running and tried to listen to music or send a quick text while taking a breather you know its almost impossible to use your phone without covering it with sweat or worse dropping it along the way! Now with this armband you can safely interact with your touch screen and listen to your favorite music :)
Compatibility and Use
Use your armband with the new Galaxy SII, SIII, S4 and S5 from all carriers. You can wear it over your biceps or on your forearm. The night reflector provides additional visibility for outdoor early morning and evening runs. There is even a slot for your house key which we all know can be a lifesaver. This armband is also great for high intensity workouts, yoga or even casual walking or outdoor activities.
Precision and Protection
The touchscreen is fully accessible through the plastic cover. The armband pouch and cover keeps your phone safe from impact and moisture while working out.
This armband is lightweight and accommodates arm sizes from approx. 9 to 14.5 inches. Also we recommend that you use this armband without a case.
Material and Care
Made of nylon, velcro and neoprene materials. This armband can be safely hand washed and air dried after use. We do NOT recommend machine washing your armband as this could cause damage.
This pack is great for those creative kids. My girls love to make these bracelets and other different objects.
We had a friend that made an awesome panda keychain.
With 6000 bands, your child can have hours and hours of fun!

I have major OCD issues so am so happy that they come individually wrapped by color.
This picture was my 18 year old. Do not feel that these are only for elementary kids. I even love to use. You can use with any loom. We have 2 different types and the bands work for both.
This is a great purchase. Although with so many pieces, you might want to buy the sectioned case too. Which is a good thing to have. My plastic case has places for the bands and for the loom.
You can purchase this set of 6000 bands from Amazon for $13.99

Veggie Go's are delicious! Great, healthy, on the go snack. Our 2 year old loves to snack all day, instead of eating 3 meals. We have found that keeping snacks on hand is the best help. Problem today is most kid friendly snacks are filled with tons of sugar and are not healthy. Veggie Go's are:
1. Gluten Free
2. No GMO's added
6. Dairy free
7. No preservatives
8. No added sugars
You can feel great about feeding your kids Veggie-Go’s, that is if you don’t eat them first! The following are just a few of the reasons to choose Veggie-Go’s for your fruit and veggie strip.
1/2 serving of fruit AND 1/2 serving of veggies in every strip
Less than 1/3 the sugar of the leading fruit strip (no added sugar or fruit concentrates)
You can rest assured that when feeding your child or yourself Veggie Go's that you are eating a healthy snack.
These are great for a quick snack break at work, take in the duffle to sports events, send to school for the whole class. If you send to school as a class treat, the teacher does not have to worry about most childhood allergies.
These are also, packaged perfectly to toss in your diaper bag. This is what I do, when my daughter starts hollering that shes hungry, I just whip out the Veggie Go and she is thrilled.
For just $27.79 you can purchase a 20pk of these yummy snacks. That is only $1.38 a piece.
They have 5 great flavors to choose from or get a variety pack.
Berries Spinach Apples
Carrot Apple Ginger
Cinnamon Spice Beet Apple
Tropical Mango Kiwi Kale
Sweet Potato Pie
Check out where to purchase
You can also find them on social medias at:
Also a great way to get your kids to eat their veggies!
I received these snack to test and write my honest review.
This product is great! We have tested a couple items lately that my kids swear will not work. Low and behold, when we test it, it works! This is one of the products. When my 16 year old, grill master, son pulled this out of the package he swore it was going to be too thin to use on the heat of the grill. After using on the hamburgers last night, he stands corrected.
Just lay it on the rack of the grill and put the food that you are wanting to cook, on top and grill. Too wash it off just turn on the hot water, toss some dish soap on it and rinse and let air dry. So easy to use and so easy to clean!
Great to take it on camping trips for those grills that you have no idea what has been on them.
We love this product and fully recommend it! Father's Day is coming up and would make a great gift!
A great item to use with this is the BBQ Silicone heat gloves:

My oldest daughter, who has laundry duty more than any of the other kids, loved this Power Shot bottle. It was so easy to use. All you do is open the can and then turn the bottle upside down. Each time that you do this you get one powerful shot of detergent. Once the bottle is turned upwards again, the shot top refills itself. That way you are ready when the next load is ready to be washed.
There are 2 scents available at this moment and they are mountain Breeze and Natural Elements Linen and Lilies. I like the Mountain Breeze the best, but that is my opinion.
Since we have such a large family we have to use 2 shots instead of just one. Our loads are large and demand more detergent.
The slogan for the Power Shot is
there is no measuring, no guesswork and no mess
As a mom, the no mess is my favorite part! It never fails that while doing the laundry you pour the bottle over and detergent leaks out...It is a mess!
We only buy detergent and soaps that are gentle on the skin. Purex is one of the 2 we can buy. Not only is it gentle on the skin, it's gentle on the pocket book.
This product just came out in January so check your local stores and give it a try. I believe you will like it as much as I do.
As a Purex Insider I received this product to test and to post my honest review. All opinions are my own or that of my family. Thank you for reading!
Saving your child from the pain and complications of a sunburn is usually on parent minds during the summer time. But, did you know that kids and adults can get a sun burn during the winter months also? You absolutely can! The sun can actually be more dangerous in the winter than in the summer. Many people don't know that the sun's rays aren't as direct in the winter as in the summer. Higher altitudes mean more intense UV ray exposure. Snow is the perfect sun reluctant. If you go skiing in the winter most of those hills are at higher altitudes. Protecting your child's skin is most important.
UV rays that are reflected can be just as damaging as direct exposure
•Light and non-greasy
•Moisturizing, hydrating, soothing
•Mineral, natural SPF30, no chemical filters
•Natural chocolate scent, no artificial fragrances
•Toxin-free, Gluten-free, Oxybenzone-free, Paraben-free
Rich in Antioxidants and Vitamin C
EWG safety rating 1
Finding that perfect sun tan lotion or spray is the most important thing. My husband who has psoriasis has to purchase lotions that are high in oil. Especially when we are talking about swimming in chlorine. He dries out so bad that it actually hurts. But for children it is imperative. Their skin is so new to all the rays that they burn so easy.

#1 weight loss fad that is going around at this time. It does work. I would not recommend though if you are not ready to work out along with taking this pill.
Garcinia Cambogia Extract is a natural weight loss helper. When I have taken this extract, I am just not hungry. If you aren't hungry, you aren't going to eat. If you aren't sitting around eating all day, you aren't going to gain weight. I took this with IPurify which is a colon cleanser. Good colon health is another helper in weight loss. I liked this product. It is not meant to help you become skinny fast. It is meant to help in your quest to lose the weight you need to lose.
Natural Nutrition Labs is a leading provider of dietary supplements on Amazon.com.
Our Garcinia Cambogia has been scientifically formulated to reduce the appetite and increase metabolism helping people lose weight. The product is completely natural and does not have any fillers or binders.
Garcinia Cambogia has featured on numerous TV shows including Dr Oz.
Dr Oz recommended Garcinia Cambogia calling it "The most exciting breakthrough in natural weight loss to date".

I don't like to do laundry. I have to be careful what detergents I buy for my kids. My husband and oldest have psoriasis and my 2 boys have bad allergies. I try to buy the detergents without perfumes and dyes. The crystal wash laundry balls are just that. Dye, perfumes and chemical free. The Crystal Wash Balls will also save you money. When you use these you do not need to buy detergent. Wash 1000 loads of laundry without using detergent. Great for the budget!
We loved this product. Just toss them in the washer with your laundry and wait for them to get clean. I actually think that these have a small scent to them. I love the no mess wash. No detergent to measure and no tab to toss.

My daughter was so excited to test out this strap. My brother in law gave his guitar to her the Christmas before he died. This guitar means the world to her. We have looked all over for the perfect strap for her. Having found this Strapsnake strap was the best thing for her.
This strap is classic black and cotton. It is made to fit most sizes. My daughter isn't a tiny girl. We were able to fit it to her comfortably. The strap adjusts to 56 inches down to 33.5 inches. Would be great for your child too.
This classic strap is non slide material. I feel the cotton helps with that more than leather. This cotton strap is very sturdy. It is only 2 inches wide so that it does not rub against your neck or be too wide to stay on your shoulder.
Strapsnake has a no hassle 100% guarantee. Just them and let them know there is an issue.
You can purchase this great strap from Amazon.com for $15.88
