Bento Style Plastic Lunch Boxes Review






I was really wanting to try these. The colors are so pretty. I love the colors that they picked for these. Very springy. There are 4 Bento lunch boxes that have 3 compartments each and a lid.

So many things you can do with these:

1. apples and caramel with a sandwich
2. apples with cheese and pasta salad
3. carrots with ranch and a sandwich
4. pasta olives and salad
5. salad dressing and toppings

So many different options. The boxes fit very well on top of each other.


Don't have time in the morning to make your lunches? No problem, make your lunch and store it in the freezer. Bring it home and throw it on the top shelf of the dishwasher. Want to take something to warm up at work? Perfect, just toss it in the microwave at work or school.

Dimensions: Length 9.5" x width 6.2" x height 2.2" - 1st compartment: 3 1/2 cups, 2nd compartment: 1 1/3 cups, 3rd compartment: 1 cup.

So if you like to take healthy alternatives to those greasy burgers, why not take your bento style box with you.

We are a family on the go. Sporting events, fishing, camping and just school lunches. These are definitely going to get a good amount of wear into them.


You can purchase these boxes from Amazon.com for $13.95

Lambie and Me Review


I couldn't get this "lovie" out of the box fast enough before my little girl was all over it. I don't know if you can see that she was in the corner of the picture. Our little girl loves silk and minky material. She loves to rub it all over her little face. Her sensory processing issues make her want to touch and feel everything. Velcro is big one with her. She chews on soft materials and bpa free latex. This was the perfect item for her.


I think Lambie is going to be a very loved part of the family!

Each snuggle blanket measures 20 inches from head to toe (bottom of blanket), perfect for newborns, infants, or toddlers little hands to snuggle and carry. Even perfect for children who just need that extra "snuggle".

The lambs face details are so cute. Soft features and no choking pieces. The ears, hands and back are all satin, the rest of the body is a soft plush feeling material. Boy or girl your child is going to love this blanket.

Lambie would make the best shower gift or even 1st birthday gift. Comes in a gift box with beautifully embossed wording. Would be a treasured keepsake for sure!

Easy to wash, in cold water.



You can purchase this product from amazon.com for $17.97

I was sent this product in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own. pmfc0cc602ce843b5393684a7fc1b566bc

Fruit Infusion Water Bottle Review





Some many different fruits and vegetable combinations to choose from.

1. cucumber and lemon
2. lemon and lime
3. strawberry and kiwi
4. strawberry and peaches
5. apple and strawberry

The list is endless. These ones I named are the ones that I have tried. I have also tried each by itself. Each of the different combinations are for specific things. Headaches, heart health, weight loss and more. With all of these options and cures, why wouldn't you try these.

You can purchase this 24oz Infused Water Bottle from Amazon for $16.99

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00L6LBT98




The gem purple lid is so pretty. Enough color for you to know it's purple but it has a jewel shimmer to it. I prefer to wash mine with a bottle brush. The pieces easily screw together.

There is plenty of room to add ice. You can add the fruit infusion to any drink. Water, tea or even to alcohol or use frozen fruit for a really cool drink.

You can also use this bottle without the infusion piece.

Have a child who hates to drink water? Why not try this bottle and see if they will drink infused water. It's a lot healthier than juice or sodas.






+LIFEGUARD MINI 1 (0415) Review




These battery sticks are the best invention for people on the go. I have reviewed a couple and my kids end up taking them. This Lifeguard mini was so lite and easy to use. It came with a 5.9in Apple compatible lightning cable and a cable that fits my Galaxy S5. Both cords charge super fast.


Whether on a road trip, at your child's sporting events, work or camping trips this will help you out! No more dead batteries.

I truly believe that all teenagers should have one of these in their glove boxes. If your child is driving down the street and gets a flat tire what are they going to do if their phone is almost dead or is dead. There is no way to get help.

Your child is done with a sporting event and ready to be picked up, looks down and their phone is dead. No way to call you to have you pick them up for a ride.

I will definitely be getting one for each of my kids. They charge really fast. I tend to plug mine into the computer but you can plug the Lifeguard Mini into any charging block.

The light will be 1 color while charging and then when it is fully charged it will be another. I plugged this into my Galaxy and it was fully charged in less than an hour. The great thing is that it still had enough power for my daughters IPhone.

Never be stuck without a charge! You can charge this "stick" over 800 times.

You can purchase this Lifeguard Mini for $21.97 from Amazon.com

COMPATIBILITY
iPhones, iPods, HTC, Samsung, Motorola, Nokia, Sony and other cell phones, MP3, MP4, digital cameras with DC 5V input.

Crib Mattress Protector Review








This is the softest crib mattress protector I have ever felt. We have had quite a few! Who knew bamboo could be so soft?

The protector is white so will not show through the crib sheet. You won't even know it's there. My daughter has sensory processing disorder, she is all about the feel and texture of things. She loves the touch of this product.


This sheet was super easy to use. It stretches well since the outside, that hooks on the edges, is made of a stretchy material. It's almost like a thick tights material. Very breathable, super absorbent and remains odor free.

The material is naturally antibacterial, antimicrobial, antifungal, hypoallergenic, and repels bed bugs. LEAD, LATEX, PHTHALATE, PVC AND BPA FREE. No chemicals used during production. PRODUCED WITHOUT CHEMICALS OR THE USE OF FLAMMABLE MATERIALS. Perfect for sensitive skin. FITS MATTRESS SNUGGLY for safety and comfort. PREMIUM PRODUCT produced with a MULTI-LAYER DESIGN and finished with a quilted, padded soft terry fiber top. NO NOISE NO SMELL.



This would make a great baby shower gift!

You can purchase this crib mattress protector from Amazon.com for $19.95

Picks by Tanbi Musc



A lot of guitar players are very particular about their picks. Almost like their signature. The right color and size is everything. My daughter prefers green or purple picks. She uses an accoustic guitar. She is very proud of it. My brother in law gave her his prized guitar for Christmas 3 months before he passed away. When he passed she promised to learn to use it.

This cute flower plastic holder comes with 50 picks. Each flower comes with 4 different colors. Just pick the right 1 for you. You can pick from blue, green, purple and pink. The picks have a range in weight of .73, .88, 1mm and 1.14. Each of these picks is made of high quality material so that they don`t bend or break from continued use.

The case\holder is not only cute and sturdy but the size is perfect to toss in the guitar case or your bag.
Each case will hold up to 100 picks. You will never have to buy picks again.

You can purchase these for your seasoned player or the newbie. Each set would make a great gift.

You can purchase these off Amazon.com for $ 13.99

Meat Claws By Cheff Arts Review






Everyone says that my oldest son looks like Wolverine..well now holding up the Meat Claws, he really does! We got a big kick out of this picture last night. We are so excited for grilling season to be coming back around. We love to grill. Rarely do we ever have anything like ribs, so this was perfect timing. My son was really excited to try these out. Normally is tongs and a plate very ready to grab the meat off the grill.


Just jab the meat claws into the meat and lift. You can't get any simpler.


These claws are very sturdy. You do not have to weasel the claws in. If the meat is tender and ready to be served they will slide right in. You can also use these when you want to pull meat apart. Use the claws like a bear would pull apart its meat.

HEAT RESISTANT - Withstands temperatures up to 450*F/230*C -Unlike inferior products, you never have to worry about the tips melting

To wash just toss in the top shelf of the dishwasher. Very handy, very sturdy and so easy to clean. When it comes to BBQing that is how you want your products to be. You have already cooked for hours, so easy clean up is the way to go.

You can purchase this product from Amazon.com for $7.99

Professional Pastry Blender Review






My 14 year old is a baking freak! She is constantly baking us something. Whether it be cakes, cupcakes, brownies or pies. She liked this product a lot. She said it was a lot easier to use than a whisk or spoon. We have been trying to buy her products that would help her in fulfilling her passion of baking.

Victorea would love to own a bakery one day. Although, I love this idea she is making us all gain weight. She is great at what she does. She gets terribly made when her treats are gone so quickly. We have to remind her that the reason they are gone is due to them being so yummy!

Super easy to clean! Either with just hot water and soap or you can toss in the top rack of the dishwasher.


The picture shows her making some of her great tasting frosting!

Silicone Heat Resistant BBQ & Grill Gloves Review.




These gloves are totally awesome! I could not imagine picking up the grate of the grill with a pot holder. Check out the end of this video where my son is wearing the Silicone Heat Resistant BBQ gloves.



These gloves can fit me who has a really small hand and my son who has quite the large hands. I wasn't sure they would fit over his "mitts" due to them being so big. But guess what? They did!

My daughter loves to bake and she has been so skeptical about these type gloves. She has a phobia about getting burnt. (as most of us do) She is able to take out cookie sheets and muffin tins with no problem at all. With her hands being as small as mine the gloves cover quite a bit of her wrist and arm too. That helps in case you accidently bump the side of the stove when you are removing your baked item.

I love the lime green color! It is my daughters favorite color that is why I was excited to get these for her to try. BUT, if you watch the video of my son handling the BBQ grill grate with ease, you will want to buy a pair of these!

FDA APPROVED & BPA FREE.

Premium 100% Food Grade Silicone -The Gloves are Waterproof and Dishwasher Safe Design Effortlessly Washes Grime, Grease And Oil Off
Heat Resistant Durability For Temperatures Up To 425 Degrees Fahrenheit
No-Slip Five Finger Design To Allow Safe Movement Of Hot Items and Boiling Water With a Strong Grip


LOVE LOVE LOVE these gloves!


You can purchase these gloves from Amazon.com for $15.99

Yumms! BBQ Grilling Mat Review






We LOVE this grill mat!! We made ribs last night and hot dogs for the kids and it was so easy to do with the Yumms Grill mat.



As my son says in the video, when he went to brush off the mat it just wiped right off. This is so easy to use and protects the grill grates from getting all the food leftovers stuck on it. That means less work for you!

If you hate using public items like grills and bathrooms this is perfect for you. Say you want to go to the lake and grill this weekend. Just grab you Yumms BBQ grilling mat and go. You won't have to worry about someone else's food getting mixed with yours. EWE!


You can purchase this awesome mat from Amazon.com for $15.95

http://www.amazon.com/Yumms-BBQ-Grill-Mat-Set/dp/B00THPZ1MG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1429109041&sr=8-1&keywords=yumm+grill+mat


Suction Bowl and Spoon for Baby / Toddler Review





Does your child like to make a huge mess, by dumping their food over onto their highchair tray? This neat little yellow bowl might save you from the mess.

I took it out of the package and started suctioning it to all different surfaces to see if at some point it wouldn't stick. It stuck to the marble counters, the wood take and the metal ledge. I do not know about any other surfaces. But these it stuck to very well.

This bowl set comes in 3 pieces. The bowl, the clear lid and the spoon. I like how the spoon fits into the lid so that you do not have to worry about losing it. The spoon also has an easy to hold handle, making it easy for you to use, as well as for baby when he's ready to start trying to self-feed


The colors are so vibrant that you should not accidentally lose this. If you go out to eat and take this with you, when you check the table before leaving you should see it and be good. I don't know how many dull colored items we have left at food places. It's frustrating and gets expensive.


Holds the perfect amount of food for your baby or growing toddler.


It is top dishwasher rack safe. (just remove the suction ring first) But so easy to clean that just take a sponge and hot water, with soap and it is so fast to dry.

Toss it in the diaper bag for safe travels.

You can purchase this product from Amazon for only $6.99

Dial Miracle Oil Body Wash Review



This body wash smells so good! I wasn't sure it would, as I don't like the smell of a lot of oils.


I had also never heard of caring oils. Oils don't seem to lather very well but with the new Micro Oil Technology this Miracle Body Wash lathers quite nicely!



My husband has to use moisturizing soaps due to his psoriasis. The oils keep his skin looking healthy. Due to the scaling of his skin he gets stares everywhere we go. It doesn't seem to bother him, but it bothers me. I am always looking for products to help his with this issue. Oils help his skin a lot better than lotions. If you have psoriasis or other skin issues, I would try this and see what you think.

Since we have a large family we are always looking for family friendly products. Dial is one of those brands that has the family in mind. We are able to use their products with out any sensitivity.

I like to use this as just a hand wash. My skin gets so dry during the winter. Just pour a little in your hand and once dry, you have soft skin again. Not too bad for such an inexpensive product.

You can purchase this 16oz Miracle Oil Body Wash for $10.37 from Amazon.com

http://www.amazon.com/Dial-Miracle-Restoring-Body-Wash/dp/B00SUN9050/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1428959002&sr=8-1&keywords=Dial+Miracle+oil+body+wash

Check out dial @ www.DialSoap.com

or their Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/Dial

The Dial brand provided me with a sample of Dial Miracle Oil Body Wash in exchange for a product review.
