Chew-Choos 'Sweet pea' Silicone Teething Necklace Review





We love all the teething products that we have reviewed so far. This company, so far, has the brightest colors. Babies love to play with things while they are nursing. Whether it be your hair, your lips or your clothes. Babies just like to fiddle.

While they are teething, everything goes in the mouth. During this time we were constantly making sure that whatever the kids put in their mouths, that it was safe. These teething necklaces are made of Organic Food-Grade Silicone and Free from BPA, PVC, Phthalates, Cadmium, Lead, Latex or any harmful toxins. This FDA-approved silicone is also hygienic, hypoallergenic and resistant to bacteria. Very safe for your child!


If you look close the "beads" have a neat design. It adds to their texture.

My little girl has sensory issues. To keep her from getting overwhelmed, we keep "biter" bracelets and necklaces. These keep her calm during church and trips to the grocery store. She loves the bright color of the Chew Choos Sweet Pea brand. A lot of the other brands have bland colors.


Safety Information
Intended for mothers to wear and is not a toy. Please do not leave with child unattended as it could pose a choking hazard. Please discard once it shows any signs of wear. It is not meant for mature teeth or aggressive biting.

However, our little girl is 2 1/2. She chews on this frequently. We have not had any issues. I do not let her sleep in these. She uses them around us. This keeps her calm. When our daughter wears the necklace I make it shorter for safety. The breakaway clasp is great.

+LIFEGUARD Car Charger 2.1A Review






This Lifeguard car charger comes in either black or white with silver. The outside rim of the USB plug, glows when it is plugged in.


Dual charging plugs. This is a needed thing on car rides. In our house there are 5 cell phones, 2 travel game systems and MP3 players. These items go on all road trips. It is inevitable that one of the kids will scream "Mom, my phone is dying, hurry up I need to charge it". With this Lifeguard charger on hand, we can charge our phone and still charge theirs. I'm contemplating buying another for the outlet in the back of the van.

Plus you can't beat the price! The single USB charger that I got for Christmas didn't last at all and it cost around $8. The Lifeguard charger has a lifetime warranty. The +LIFEGUARD 2.1A Car Charger has a LIFETIME warranty and it carries the trustworthy +LIFEGUARD brand. You can count on the +LIFEGUARD customer service crew anytime and anywhere



This specific charger is FAST. I went last night to test it and when I plugged in my phone it had less than 50% left. Around 20 min later I was fully charged. I love this charger!



You can purchase this product for $10.97

God Bless My Boo Boo Book Review


This book is so adorable! The last 3 books that I have reviewed have has so super cute animal families. My kids have had their share of boo boo's. Between cuts, scrapes, stitches, staples and surgeries. Every time we pray over their boo boo's, BIG or small.


My kids have prayers said over them so much that when I have a migraine or am sick, 1 or more of the kids will come up and ask if they can pray for me.


Thank you God for blessing and healing our boo boo's. The rhymes were my youngest favorite part. I read it to her in the sing song way. She just kept smiling and smiling!

Clear and beautiful illustrations to add to the book

You can purchase this book from Amazon.com for $7.79

MagiKuchen's Stainless Steel Fine Mesh Strainer Review

<a href="http://www.tomoson.com/?code=TOP9eb03684da49f75cb731a22aa72a2fef" rel="nofollow"><img style="display: none" src="http://www.tomoson.com/images/front/pixel.png" /></a

This is a great strainer. We can use this one when we are not cooking for the whole family. With 10 people in the house, we have a HUGE strainer.

The metal mesh in this strainer will not allow food to slip through.

You can choose from a green or a black handle. I chose green so that it is easy to find in the cupboard. All my pots and pans are black handled.

We don't make ramen noodles like most people. I don't eat it as a soup. I have used this strainer to dump out the water and then put the noodles in a bowl and pour the seasoning pack on top and stir.

This is the perfect size for about 1lb box of spaghetti noodles. Or you can use for Quinoa, Rice, Noodles, Juice, Spiced Drinks and much more. 20 cm size is perfect for sifting any quantity of dry & wet ingredients such as fine Sugar, confectioner's icing, cocoa powder, ground coffee beans, Seeds, Grains to remove unhealthy acids. The 8" sieve will break compacted food into airy, uniform ingredient. It's Easier to strain for Faster Results & You'll NEVER have to Strain Your Quinoa or Pasta Twice.

We usually buy plastic so that we don't have a utensil that rusts but this MagiKuchen's Stainless Steel Fine Mesh Strainer is unrustable.

The Handle Can Never Fall Off Even After Many Years Of Use.

You can purchase this product from Amazon.com $19.99

Little Cosmetics Pretend Makeup Review



One of the things that little girls love to play with the most is mommy's clothes and mommy's make-up. My older girls, and sometimes the boys, loved to use my empty make-up containers.


Our youngest is just the same. Although I don't wear as much make-up now, she still want to be like her Mommy. We have had smeared eye liner faces and mascara hair.

Little Cosmetics has take care of this issue.

The Essential Set includes:

- One Powder Compact with Shatterproof Mirror
- One Lip Gloss
- One Pink Blush Compact
- One Glitter Pot
- One Eye Shadow Palette
- Makeup Brush Set
- Cosmetic Bag



Each plastic piece is perfect for all little girls.

Do you have a child with sensory issues this is perfect for them. Each of the make-up containers have a different texture to them.


Some are soft and rubbery feeling, a couple are rough and then there are the brushes in different amounts of bristles.


Even though in the video she says that she didn't have fun, you should be able to tell that she did.



No, is just the big thing right now.


Yes there are choking hazards so please only use with children 3 and up.

Dream Dots Review






Dream dots are like a teenage dream remedy. My 14 year old daughter has such issues with her poor skin. She doesn't even have to wear make up or use oily products. She still breaks out.


But after wearing this over night for a couple nights the skin looks much better.


Dream Dots are just that. Little discs that you put on the blemished area and go to bed. Wear it overnight and in the morning remove. Dream Dots are a unique super absorbent hydro matrix patch. It targets spots and breakouts overnight using no harsh ingredients, yet gives dramatically effective results.

You can purchase this product from amazon.com for $17.90 for a pk of 24

My daughter has never felt better in her skin, then she does now! Thank you Dream Dots!


Matcha Tea Ceremony Gift Set






This is such a neat gift set. My daughter LOVES Matcha tea. She prefers it cold and blended with milk. But you can make it into a nice hot tea. Just use the wood scoop and put 2 large scoops into your bowl, pour half a cup of hot water, stir with the wood whisk, set the wish into the green "bowl" and drink.


Not only does it taste good but the Matcha powder smells good!



Lots of people trying to lose weight use green tea. The antioxidants alone are great for you.

You can purchase this gift set for $49.99

Pure Forskolin All Natural Weight Loss Supplement Review




<a href="http://www.tomoson.com/?code=TOP6377cff5f30546ee700be4ffc6c8b31b" rel="nofollow"><img style="display: none" src="http://www.tomoson.com/images/front/pixel.png" /></a>

A lot of people are trying to lose weight. Weight loss is not an easy thing. Women and men alike struggle day in and day out. Do you choose weight Watchers or do you go with other weight loss meals. The weight loss product that a lot of stars are using is Forskolin. Just take 1 weight loss pill in the morning, and 1 in the evening. Use this with your daily workout for an extra push for weight loss. I have tried this for a little bit and I am never hungry. In fact, I totally forgot to eat 1 day, since I wasn`t hungry. This is not good, so please remember to eat. Even if you are not hungry, eat a little something so that you don`t get sick. Weight loss is great and all but you still have to have a certain calorie intake.

Works on your body's hormone-sensitive fat-storing tendency. Once it stimulates your "dormant" fat-burning enzymes and hormones, it melts fat cells and flushes them from your body! Basically, it "ignites" your metabolism by waking up sluggish hormones!

Do not forget that only eating better and taking Forskolin is not going to be it. You have to incorporate a work out regime also. Even a daily walk is better than nothing.

Results are not the same for everyone.

You can purchase this product from amazon.com for $18.95

Saavy Naturals Plumeria Violet Body Cream Review






The scent of this product is amazing! I am amazed at how long the scent actually lasts. Normally I put on the lotion, it smells really good and then about 10 min later, you can't even tell I put it on. I put this body cream on and the scent lasts over a half an hour. No need to reapply as you hands will still be silky smooth. My hands dry out so bad. I was very impressed by the thickness of the body cream. A lot of lotions are liquidy or full of alcohol, which dries out your hands more.

Saavy is a all natural body cream made with shea butter.

Ingredients:
Aqua/purified water, Glyceryl stearate SE, Simmondsia Chinensis
(Jojoba) Seed Oil, Glycerin, Cetyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Glucoside, Butyrospermum
parkii (Shea) Butter, Olea europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Tocopherol (Red Palm oil*),
Allantoin, Aloe barbadensis (Aloe) Leaf Juice*, Aleurites moluccana
(Kukui) Seed Oil*, Moringa pterygosperma Seed Oil*, Argania spinosa
(Argan) Kernal oil, Chamomilla recutita matricaria (Chamomile), Passiflora
incarnata Flower Extract, Salix alba (Willow) Bark Extract, Althaea officinalis
(Marshmallow) Extract, Equisetum arvense Leaf Extract, Alchemilla vulgaris
Extract (Lady’s Mantle), Citrus aurantium bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil,
Helianthus annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Plumeria alba Flower Extract, Plumeria
rubra Flower Extract, Viola odorata, Lonicera caprifolium (Honeysuckle)
Flower Extract, Lonicera japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Xanthan Gum,
Gluconolactone. *Certified Organic


Saavy is vegan and gluten free. Only Cetyl Alcohol. I love that the label says "Food for your skin". Just simple hydration for your skin from head to toe. This will not clog your pores.

No animals are tested for this product.

Saavy is not only body creams. They sell handcrafted soaps with jojoba.


I am not that thrilled with the smell of lemon. But, I loved the smell of this soap. It was Yuzu and Meyer Lemon scent.
Bright yellow color and the soap does not gum up. Love Love Loved using this.


You can choose many different scents for $12.95 for 8oz bottle on Amazon.com

These would make great gifts!!

Glow in the Dark Loom Band Bands Review





My child loves loom bands. She has so many homemade bracelets and rings, she could probably open a shop. But now there are glow in the dark bands!

As and 11 year old girl, that made her day. She doesn't like the dark. With 3600 glow in the dark bands, she will never be in the dark again!


My daughter chose pink and blue to make her a glow in the dark ring. At that moment she couldn't find her loom so she made it on her fingers.


We even made you a video so you can watch her make the ring on her fingers.



She made this ring in less than 5 minutes.


So much fun packed into such a simplistic item. We even use these as hair bands in my 2 year olds hair. It's funny at night she runs around with a glowing head.

You can purchase this item from Amazon.com for $11.99

http://www.amazon.com/3600-Piece-Glow-Dark-Bands/dp/B00QH9PZIK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1430322638&sr=8-1&keywords=3600+glow+in+the+dark+loom+bands

Definitely strong bands! \

Lunchbox Buddies



When kids go to school, sometimes even before lunch they have had a terrible day. Forgot their homework at home or a kid wasn't being very nice. Whatever the reason, they might need a pick me up.


When I was younger, my days went so much better when I would find a little note tucked into my lunch box. The note didn't have to say much. Just a simple "I love you" or "have a good day" was enough to help me make it through the rest of my day.

Lunchbox buddies are just that. A simple and quick way to make your child's day.


Each packet has 20 characters. Each one with a little pick me up. "flex those smile muscles" or " I'm proud of you kiddo". My son loved that they are blank. He got to color them however he wanted.

Different characters and designs. There are Goofballs 1 and Goofballs 2, Space cadets and Super Weirdos. Something for each child.

Each 20 character pack is only $3.99

http://lunchboxbuddies.com/products.php

Do not let their age stop you. Even my 16 and 18 year old love to find the notes on the bathroom mirror or just stuck in their wallets. Makes them smile, which keeps their days brighter!

I think would even work for your coworker. Just put 1 on their cubicle and see what happens.

If you live in New York, MA or Indiana you can purchase in some local stores.

You should check out their site and their social media accounts:

I was sent this product in exchange for my honest review.

WEDGiTS Imagination Set Review





Want to keep your child busy for hours? Buy Wedgits! I could not believe how long he has sat and played with this set. This is only the 15 piece starter set. He is still just building and rebuilding. This set comes with 2 blue, 1 red, 4 green, 3 yellow and 5 white.

Just give your child the box and watch their imagination take root. My son acted like he had a million pieces. I will definitely be buying more. I will use anything to keep him from only playing video games this summer. Each piece seems very sturdy.

Our 2 year old had to get involved and thought these belonged to her. Great for stacking and learning her colors. I don't allow legos in the house due to them being a chocking hazard. Wedgits are the perfect size. Due to their shape they aren't a chocking hazard

Wedgits also carries magnetic Wedgits and mini Wedgits. Perfect for all ages and stages.


The WEDGiTS Starter set is compatible with all standard WEDGiTS products making it a toy that will grow with your child.

You can purchase this set for $24.99
