Baby Comfy Gummi Teething Jewelry Review + Giveaway





Not only is my little one teething, but she also has sensory issues. It bite and chews on things. She is 2 1/2 and always has. I was so excited to be picked to review this items, due to that. When she seems ready to "lose it" we ask her where her bracelet is or her necklace. She knows that if she is going to bite it needs to be on those items and not herself. For those of you thinking this is normal, in her case, it isn't. But we have ways around this.

This Baby Comfy Gummi necklace has been a lifesaver! We walked through the store yesterday with her chewing on this while I shopped. The cord is long enough to reach your child even if they are in a shopping cart.


It has a break away clap in case needed. I love this thing! I picked cherry because she doesn't have this color in any of her chew pieces.

There are many other colors to pick from

Aqua
Cream
Sky
Snow
Goth
Peachy

Each one of these Gummi necklaces are only $12.99

You can purchase this product from Amazon

http://www.amazon.com/Baby-ComfyNose-Comfy-Gummi-Aqua/dp/B00NYIAIR0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1426875881&sr=8-1&keywords=Baby+Comfy+Gummi+Teething+Jewelry

Phthalate-free, BPA-free, PVC-free, Lead-free, FDA-approved and CPSIA-compliant medical grade silicon rubber.

The texture of these are a lot different than most teething items. This product had ridges in a design. Feels so good on those gums. Babies stick everything in their mouths. Why not give them something safe to chew on. This also helps save your good jewelry.

If you keep the bag that it comes in or even toss this in a binkie saver, you can keep in clean in your purse or diaper bag. I usually just wear mine all over so that she has access to it when she feels the need for it.

Jewelry Travel Organizer Review + Giveaway






This travel, jewelry organizer is so soft! I love the pink color also. It isn't pepto bismal colored so that is a good pink! We have a family that travels a lot. The kids and I don't go far, just my husband. I wouldn't send him on a business trip with a pink jewelry organizer but my teen girls love this. Girls and their jewelry. The inside holds so many things.



Included are 2 four inch pouches for those larger jewelry pieces, like bracelets. The loops on the pouches can be secured under the snap on the outside of the jewelry travel organizer to keep everything together.

There are necklace snaps at the top and bottom to ensure there are no necklace tangles. In addition, a soft fabric covers your necklaces to eliminate scratching. The jewelry travel organizer can safely store rings on the padded bar, ear ring holder as well as 3 zippered pouches.


You can fit 4 necklaces or bracelets in the middle section. Around a dozen pairs of earrings. There are 2 zippered pockets on the left section. The ring holder is like a puffy pillow. It snaps at both the top and the bottom. It fit my size ring perfectly, which is a size 6. I stuck my husbands size 12 ring on, it was very loose but the snaps keep it safe and sound.

You can purchase this product from Amazon for $19.99

18" Packing Organizer/Folder/Envelope Review





My husband travels sometimes, for work. This is so neat! He usually has to hang everything because it is dress shirts and dress pants that can't get wrinkled in the flight. He is going to love using this the next time he goes. For now, I just had fun testing it out. I folded the shirts the way that the instruction board showed me


It was so easy!



I may need to work on it a little more but it was very simple to do. Because of the longer "arms" on the organizer, it holds quite a few items. Now, my husband is a large man. He wears size 4x shirts and size 48x32 pants. This will not hold 12 shirts but will hold around 7. But if you are a smaller man or woman, it should hold the max amount. He liked how it will keep the wrinkles to a minimum.

You can purchase this product from Amazon for $ 21.97

Lunch Bag Hango - Set of Two Sizes (Small &Large) Review





This polyester bag set is very handy. There are so many use and possibilities.

Diabetics usually carry a bag with all their insulin needs. The smaller one is perfect for that.

We have a friend whose little girl has a Mic key feeding tube. She carries all her daughters blends around in a cooler bag. The bigger bag holds plenty of blend, syringe and water tub.

My daughter is breastfeeding. She stores her pumped breast milk in the fridge or freezer. When needing to take a bottle along the insulated lunch bag is a must!


Are you going to be taking a short road trip and need to take a lunch? Maybe not a long enough trip for a cooler? These Hango bags are perfect for this. We go see family 3 hours away on a semi regular basis. Not enough to pack a cooler. Its so much cheaper to pack bologna and cheese, then to stop and feed 6 kids Mc. Donald's.


As you can see, this bag fits a lot of stuff and still zips close very comfortably. With its Zipper made of stainless steel you shouldn't have any problems.

Hango Brand are the only ones to offer a LIFETIME WARRANTY (Order yours now because, literally, THERE IS NO RISK!)

1x Lunch Bag (Large) 6L x 6H x 10W (inches)

1x Lunch Bag (Small) 5L x 5H x 7.5W (inches)

When you are not using and want to store the bags, they come with a nifty carry bag.



You can purchase this set from Amazon for $24.99

Pure Peppermint Essential Oil Review







Have you ever used any essential oils? Different oils have different uses. Some of the oils are used for tummy aches. Some for helping you sleep. Some for helping you feel rejuvenated and give you energy.

Whatever the oil you choose or need, make sure that you are using it as directed.

Peppermint oil, not only smells good, but can help relieve those pesky headaches. Just drip a little onto your finger and rub on your temples. This does not replace pain meds or doctors visits. But can reduce a headache to almost nothing. Have a sore throat? Rub a little onto your finger or into your hand and apply around your throat. Let it sit for a few minutes and the scratchy should be relieved.

Each oil is usually 100% pure and natural.


We put this in the humidifier when the baby gets a runny nose or when my allergies kick in. It helps open up the airways to help breathe. Last time I had a serious headache/migraine, I rubbed a little on my temples and my wrists. In about 45 min, with Motrin and a heat pack, I was feeling a lot better. This is not normal for me. Once the headache and or migraine hit, I'm down for the day. This does NOT take the headache away. It just helps it feel a little better. Do not replace taking Tylenol and or Motrin.


Used topically, pure peppermint oil offers several benefits to the skin. It provides nourishment to the skin cells, encouraging cell regeneration to give you a healthy glow. Pure peppermint oil can also be massaged into the scalp to provide relief from the symptoms of dandruff.
With such a wide range of applications, it’s no wonder pure peppermint oil has been recognized has one of the world’s most widely used essential oils. From promoting skin health and a strong immune system, to providing relief from muscle aches and cold symptoms, pure peppermint oil is an essential staple in any medicine cabinet

Animal Trackers Club Review-Take a Walk on the Wild Side!






This box subscription is such a cute idea. There are plenty of kids box subscriptions but this one is about learning and not food or toys.

The box that we got to test was all about Zebras. Each box comes with:

•Animal Information Card
Animal Play Figure
Animal Foam Mask
Animal Magnet
Safari Animal Photo Card
Learning Activity
Art Project

Our box was the introductory box so it came with extras:

•Introduction to the Animal Trackers Club
Animal Trackers Club Safari Lunchbox

African Savanna Information Card
Cover and Ring for the Safari Animal Photo Collection
Savanna Art Project


Savanna Animal Cards Activity

We even got a cute Zebra toy for the kids to play with.

There are 4 ways to get this box subscription sent to your child:

Monthly Plan $11.95 +3 shipping
3 Month Plan $36.00 +$3.00/month Shipping
6 Month Plan $70.00 +$3.00/month Shipping
12 Month Plan $135.00 +$3.00/month Shipping

From what I have seen of these boxes this Animal Trackers Club is the least inexpensive.

We homeschool, so this is a great lesson for a couple weeks. Just make it so you learn all about the Zebra. Then depending on the next box, use that for your lesson plan also.

This is great for preschool through 1st grade children. My son thought it was so cool! (He is 7)

Join BODE BEAR as he guides your child to discover a variety of amazing animals as he tracks them in the habitats in which they live. Beginning in the African Savanna, BODE BEAR will lead your child to explore and appreciate the animal world, while preparing them to become self-confident learners and readers
