Stuffits Review


Do you have a husband who likes to work out?  How about one that likes to hit the heavy bag?  Now, how does his gym bag smell? 

Just a Drop Review



Have you ever wondered how such a huge smell can come out of something so small?  I often wonder why potty training doesn't work quicker given the smells that can be packed into a diaper.  That said, any mom who has been through potty training has had the pleasure of the smells attacking as they first start putting the kids on the toilet as they try to get the hang of going into the potty.

Simply Snackin Review


 We love to go hiking and since a lot of our hiking is driven by birds during the fall migration you never know where your going to be headed.  So, as a wife and mom I have to be prepared.  I'm always looking for easy to pack protein filled snacks to shove in my backpacks.

Woolzies Review


If you have kids/babies/or are pregnant one thing to think about is their skin.  Now, my little guy has eczema and so I'm always watching out for things that can cause an outbreak.  I still wash with Dreft and skip the dryer sheets because they chemicals and perfumes can cause a break out.  So, the problem becomes having to find a way to de-static things with out the dryer sheet.

Bubblegum Princess Review


Reading to our kids is one of the best things we can do as parents to help our children develop grammar, their imaginations, and a lot of other skills they need in their life.  It doesn't cost much and with libraries can be free.  Plus, it doesn't matter what level your education is, if you can read to yourself you can read to your kids.

Pronto Coffee Review


 Some mornings my tea just doesn't cut it.  Being a tea fanatic means that I have been keeping less coffee on hand.  Now, for a recovering coffee-holic like myself it is a requirement to avoid having it on hand or else I'd just end up trying to figure out how to straight line it into my veins.  Still, there are just some days when a good cup of Joe is what a person needs to get through the morning and turn a bad start into a good afternoon.

Vanity Mark Brow Pencil Review


The summer months are coming to an end and that means my hair will darken.  Well, my eyebrows will because I highlight my hair right now, so it will stay the same.  The hardest part of having a color different then the one that grows in on it's own is keeping it consistent through out the year.

Went to Barbie is Moving Event on Sat!

We had a blast at the Barbie is Moving event!  The kids got some Lego's, Avery got her face painted, and she decorated a new dress for her dolls (Andrew made one for her as well).  The only thing she didn't want to do was the fashion show.  Naturally, she made this decision after we waited in line and then got inside for the photo.  To show she is a girly girl, she decided as we were leaving that she would like to do the fashion show again.  I had to tell her no since it was way past nap and there was no way I was going to get back in line for her to change her mind again.  Other than that I was having to drag them away from the lego's and dress designing because they were having such a good time!  They couldn't wait to tell dad when they got home and asked if they can go back next weekend!  Not sure how to top this next weekend!

Paparazzi Jewelry Consultant Opportunity

So, it's time to gear up for the school year and what mom wouldn't love a little a little extra money in her pockets for uniforms, instruments, and all the other gear that come's with kids in school?  Why not use it as an excuse to network with other mom's or have a party with your friends?  I found a great site that seems to be very mom friendly!

I'm always complaining about the dry air we have here in Arizona.  You know this, because your reading this blog.  So, as you know, I'm always looking at things that will help protect and alleviate my kids skin from the dryness. 

Utensil Wipes Review


So, it's time to talk about ways to keep your little one germ free this flu season!  Germs are everywhere and with all the play-dates, field trips, sport events, extra-curricular activities, and holiday trips coming up mom's have to be on the defensive against those little germs.  

1st Birthday Supplies Review


Who doesn't love a party?  We always have parties going on here.  The daycare makes sure of that and having a birthday kit on hand is always necessary!

Tiesta Tea Review

I am a tea freak!  I try to use it instead of coffee and succeed on most days.  It helps to have great tea to tempt the taste-buds.  Normally, I use tea bags already made, but admit to having a curiosity for loose leaf teas.

Skinactives Vitamin A Cream Review


 I have been getting the worst lines around my eyes from lack of sleep lately.  The heat just doesn't lend itself to full nights sleep for anyone and here the nights even boil the blood.  This means a tired mama with even more exhausted skin!

Follicleanse Shampoo Review


I swear the longer I'm in Arizona the more I go through periods where I wish to be an Alaskan!  The heat has just been murder on my feet and my hair.  It not only dries and cracks my feet beyond recognition, but it dries and cracks my hair and scalp!  I normally have oily hair, but here my hair and scalp actually need oil treatments!

Wine Wear Review


I love wine!  Naturally, this means I know a lot of people who also like wine.  School is starting up again, which means I know a lot of mom's who need a little wine de-stress back to school care package for themselves.  How boring is it though to give wine time and time again?

The Magic School Bus Review


 What was one of your favorite shows as a kid?  Who remembers the Magic School Bus?  I loved this show as a kid!  This will not be a fair review because the shear awesomeness of this show has no age!  

Flower Bouquet Review


I love flowers!  I love even more when companies utilize local growers if possible.  The flowers do better in the environment since they were raised in it and it helps the economy around me.

ResVitale Review

Kids are such a blessing, but lets face it all blessings come with sacrifice.  I know that I don't care for my skin and body the way I did when I was single.  So, I'm looking for ways to give my skin a boost that doesn't take ten steps!

Baby Comfort Nose Review


It's time to stock up on those cold supplies!  For us, that means making sure we have a good way to get the snot out of my son's head!  For those of you with new babies or one that is due any day, an efficient snot sucker is a must have item for the winter!

Piczzle Review


I love unique ways to capture memories with and am always looking for ways to bring those memories in without adding to my over populated walls.  A picture into puzzle is perfect! This would also make a great gift for a mother to be or newlyweds!
