The Coldest Water Bottle Review

What do you send with your kids when they are out with the team? We were sending water bottle by the case in hopes to keep the kids hydrated. That what was working well but the one complaint, the water is always warm.

Warm water does prevent dehydration but it's not exactly refreshing in the hot afternoon while they are running, marching, dancing, and perfecting those intense steps. So, what do you do about it?

As a parent, I am always trying to find what is best for them to be convenient so they don't have to worry about the small stuff. As a blogger, I am looking for the best products to share with you guys so you can help your family. When those worlds collide and give me something amazing for both categories, I get so excited.


Yes, that just happened. We had the opportunity to work with The Coldest Water on a review of their The Coldest Water Bottle.

The Coldest Water Bottle is designed to keep your water cold for 36 hours. That means 30 minutes in practice, the water is still cold. When practice is over, the water is still cold. On the game nights after 4 hours or on competition days, after 8 hours, the water is still cold.

My daughter is in High School Marching Band and really works her butt off. On the way to get her every day she texts and says "Bring Something Cold". Since we have been reviewing the bottle, she hasn't asked once. That is really awesome. That means it works. Her honesty and pickiness is something I love having when I m reviewing products.

On to the design, This is a very easy bottle to use. That is also very important. The width of it is very comfortable. It fits in the bottle holder on the side of her backpack. Before the Ice Cold Bottle, she said she would never carry another water bottle on her backpack because the condensation soaked through her bag and got her stuff wet. After seeing what it will do on the field, she wants it with her all the time. It is insulated very well.

The wide handle on the top makes for easy opening and clipping onto her belt. It has a wide mouth for easy filling and drinking.

Even though the icy cold water inside is icy cold, she isn't having any problems when she's holding it. No slipping or leaking, the top screws on securely. I have no complaints or recommended corrections with this design. The product in a whole is outstanding, to say the least.

I received this product for free in exchange for an honest unbiased review. If you have any questions about this product, please feel free to email us directly at [email protected] or [email protected]. We'll be happy to help you with any questions regarding our product reviews, giveaways, or giving information on working with us on another project. I look forward to hearing from you :)

ARGOIL Lifting Face Serum Review #argoil

We are here at the change of the season. Yay cool weather and flannel shirts, light weight jackets and jeans, oh how I have missed you so much!! It's not just the temp that changes. Our skin has to prepare for the weather, it needs protected and rebuilt from the 100° summer rays beating down on it for the past 3 months. 

There are so many products on the market to soften us up and give us momentary relief. What about a permanent positive rebuild? There is a whole line of products dedicated to making softer skin and hair is so easy to use.

This is a company based in Isreal. ARGOIL Lifting Face Serum as well as, the other ARGOIL products are all made and imported from Israel. Not tested on animals.

The ARGOIL Lifting Face Serum is what I received to review and I have to say it's an excellent serum that starts making the skin on my face softer noticeably softer within 3 days of using.  I was expecting a week at least but it is a fast worker. 

The serum itself is an ideal consistency. It's creamy and light weight. It offers a pump top so there is no wasting by pouring it into your palm. In a circular motion,apply to the face. It doesn't take much to cover your desired area. A little bit goes a long way, I feel like I am really getting my money's worth. 

ARGOIL Lifting Face Serum has a very mild and clean scent that doesn't overpower anything else that I am using. Applying it once a day (all that's needed), There is no greasy or sticky residue, it doesn't leave my skin feeling tacky, it dries very quickly and leaves lasting results. It's everything I have been looking for in a face product.

Top 7 Outdoorsman Must Haves #Camping #Fishing




Stolevar Ultralight Camping Cookware Set:







We love this set. It's fall and coming up on our favorite time of year. Campfires and camping. This is a complete set to bring with us on our adventures.
Everything is compact and sturdy. It's light weight and very easy to manage and clean. The handles are easy to hold on to and fold back up. The utensils are nice too. For cooking and eating, this is perfect. The travel bag is nice to keep everything all together.

What I really like about it is it's a good set to use no matter where we are. We can use it at the campground on the grill or when we are camping without the grill. Or on the gas cook stove. This set will definitely see it's fair share of adventures.

Portable Outdoor Bluetooth Speaker:

This is the second Ancord speaker I have gotten. We love it so much. The first one was amazing but it was so high demand for our family we needed another one.

These speakers have such amazing sound quality and they get so loud. What we like so much about it is even with the volume turned up, we don't lose clarity in the sound. A few of the other Bluetooth speakers we have had, they don't get anywhere near the loudness and nowhere near the sound quality. This is awesome for indoor and outdoor.

These are great for traveling. When the speaker blew out in my minivan, the Bluetooth speaker was all we needed. With the windows down and driving on the highway, I could still hear the speaker just fine. Compared to the other Bluetooth speaker we had, We couldn't hear it all with the windows down. This is an amazing speaker.

DKnight Magicbox II Bluetooth speaker
This is a really awesome speaker to have out while your walking, hiking, or anywhere that you don't want to carry a whole stereo with you. I like to use in in our car and out on the porch.

Answering your phone with the speaker so you can stay hands-free is so simple. It connects by aux cable or by Bluetooth. This speaker has some serious sound quality! The bass is so even and stays nicely with the music. Even when it is all the way maxed out, the bass moves up smoothly without taking the sound quality of the music. It's so clear sounding.

Long Sleeve Cotton Henley Shirt T-Shirt

This is an awesome long sleeve light weight shirt. The buttons are secure and easy to manage. It's nice for being outside because it's breathable and it's not hot and protects from the elements. This is a nice fit and true to its size. I got an XL for my step dad and it fits perfect! The shoulders are wide enough and the sleeves are long enough.

 AYL TC80 4-In-1 CREE LED Flashlight

This is an awesome flashlight. It is very bright light so I do recommend not shining it in your eyes. It has some really awesome features that are great for outdoors at night time.

The zoom light makes it easy to light up a bigger area or zero in on something.
The center side light pulls down for a bar light, hazard light, strobe light.
The magnet is awesome and makes changing a tire or anything that has to be done in the dark, so much easier.

This has a really nice weight to it.

 Hunting Rifle Bipod - 6 Inch to 9 Inch+ Rail Mount

This is awesome for any hunter. My step dad is a hunter and is in the woods as soon as season, opens every year. Anything to make the trip better is really cool. The Rifle Bipod plus rail mount means that he will be able to have a steady hand no matter where he is.

Rifle Scope 1 x 40mm Red Green for 11mm/20mm Mount

The scope is awesome. This aids in accuracy. I will be adding more about it in the update :)

NancyDrew Codes and Clues from Her Interactive App Review

What kinds of games do your kids like to play on their devices? I like to play all kinds of games. Hidden object, detective, matching games, and more. My daughter is always wanting to play games with me and gets frustrated at the difficulty levels or has a problem understanding the logic.
Nancy Drew Codes and Clues is all of those games in one with so much more added to it. There is fashion, for Nancy, and her 2 friends, coding to get the dog, that you get to name, across the rooms, matching object to object, matching shadow to object, and the detective action for figuring out who did it. 
The kids talk about what is going on in the story mode. The player has the option of listening/reading what is going on or skipping to the end and starting the game. I had a problem with my sound so I couldn't hear anything throughout the entire app but I will update once I figure that part out.
At the beginning of every mission (there are 6) there is the option of picking out each one of the 3 girls outfits. They each have 4 options that are related to the theme of the story. A very fun and interactive part of the app is the camera icon. Taking a picture of the game being played is so easy.  When I was playing it, I took a picture of all the kid's clothes I chose for the missions.
As far as the actual playing, I really like the way it's set up. There are no penalties for clicking on the wrong object or getting points or bonuses. There is no score at all. That I think is really cool for a kids app. The means no frustration or feeling inadequate. I love that for my daughter. It makes the game, a fun game not a competition. 
For the rewards, There are charms they earn the whole way through that fill up the charm bracelet and it can be accessed throughout the whole game time in the app.  

This is a really fun game, I liked playing it with my daughter. When all 6 missions are complete, the data can be erased and then you can start over. It's really cute.
I was compensated for the review of this app. If you have any questions about Amy & Aron's Real Life Reviews or would like information on how to work with us please feel free to email us directly at [email protected] or [email protected]

4 Kitchen Must Haves From Coffee to Popcorn

Who is the chef in your house? I love to cook but I'm not as good at it as Aron is. I have to make sure everything goes smooth or I am known to have mini-melt-downs throughout the house. It's not cute.

There are so many stages of falling apart through the course of preparing a meal. The evil laugh of acceptance/defeat and the silent cry are the 2 I most frequent. I really depend on my kitchen to work with me. What I mean by my kitchen is, all of the appliances, dishes, accessories, and most of all the food, to come together and understand, I am only a human, and I love the people I am feeding very much.

Some very dependable products I have grown to love are a few that I got to review lately so I want to tell you all about them.

We will start with the most basic necessity, Coffe. Have you ever burnt a coffee pot? made the coffee so strong that it didn't just taste like freshly brewed dirt but also put hair on you chest? Every mishap with the coffee that you could imagine, I have been through. Including, busting the pot by whacking it on the counter while I was talking.
I received this amazing Sumatra Dream French Press that only requires hot water, I can totally serve up hot water! So, it's very easy to use and since it's a press, you can bring it with you everywhere. No electricity needed. All you need really (besides the coffee) is hot water.

The set comes with a measuring spoon. Just put in your ground coffee, pour in your hot water (no filter) plunge down the press and serve. It's really that easy.

All of the loose grounds stay at the bottom of the pot and having freshly brewed coffee is that easy and that fast. There is no wait time on the percolator. It is really simple and the cool part of it not being plugged in, I don't have to worry about forgetting and burning the pot.

As far as the pot itself goes, it is nice to hold on to. The handle is comfortable and supports the weight of it nicely. The plunger is very easy to operate and smooth. There is no fighting or hard resistance.

Something else I have had problems with in the past is Popcorn. Yes, simple, lovable popcorn. One of America's favorite snacks has defeated me on more than one occasion. Everyone can make Popcorn, NO, Not Everyone Can Make Popcorn. For me, I make Char-corn. Bag for the microwave or pot on the stove, I have been defeated more times that I can count or even care to admit.
Well, SiliCONE has heard our evil laugh of acceptance/defeat and the silent cries and have rescued us from ourselves. This is so simple, a silicone popcorn popper. This makes popping the corn fast and so much cheaper than buying the microwave kind all of the time. it's so much healthier too.

Simple steps
#1- Pop it open
#2- pot Popcorn kernels in it
#3 Turn on the microwave
#4 Eat it

I love simple recipes. This is one that it's so easy for everyone in the family to be able to enjoy their favorite flavors on their popcorn without haveing to pay the price for gourmet popcorn. We have all of the seasoned popcorn shakers and the kids like to make their own flavors and do an amazing job at it.

This is so simple to store when it's not being used. It's pops down into itself and takes up so little room, it's awesome. Another cool thing about it is, oil is not required so it's really healthy! Well, until we add five sticks of butter then, not so much.

It comes with it's own travel bag so making popcorn anywhere is so easy. Work, school, or even a motel room if you're on vacation. Really it is so simple and so convenient, and easy.

So what about kitchen accessories and tools? Everything in a kitchen is an asset. I love things that help me along the way. One thing I am pretty good at is baking. I love to make desserts for the family and for the kids and their friends when they have sleep-overs. One thing I have been trying to get better at is the decorating.
I teamed up with Ohuhu on a brilliant kitchen tool. The  Aluminium Alloy 12 Inch Revolving Cake Stand.  I love this cake decorating table. It's perfect for evenly spinning my cakes for easy decorating and serving on.

Spinning the cake versus reaching over or turning a counter level stationary dish is so much better to me. I can frost evenly and so much faster with the raised up platform. This is a great surface for cake decorating.

Aside from the easy of use as a tool, this is a beautiful serving tray. It is so shiny and elegant. It makes a beautiful centerpiece to a dinner party.

Nice spatulas make a huge difference in cooking too. The Small Black Spatula Turner bt Home Dejour  is the perfect addition to our collection. The handle is important as well as the paddle end. The handle features a hole in the end so I can hang it up when it's not being used. The flipper is a nice width. I can easily flip everything from eggs to pancakes, to burgers without worrying about them falling apart.

The spatula is nice and sturdy and can hold even a half pound burger without a struggle. I had no problems using it in high heat pans, there was no melting or warping at all. I love that about it. It's very flexible!

Top 6 Breastfeeding Essentials For New and Expecting Moms

What are your views on baby feeding? We love babies getting fed, that is the #1 choice for us. As far as the method and substance, there are so many opinions on both sides of breast milk and formula. I wanted so badly to breastfeed my kids but, with my body and work, I didn't have it all together to work out. If I had the resources and knowledge that I do now, I would have been successful at it for sure.

My niece is due to have a baby boy in just a few months. We have been talking about her options and she wants to breastfeed. I am so happy for her and excited for her journey. I have been able to work with a few amazing companies to get her going on her way.

With a manual breast pump, nursing pads, specially designed bottles, nursing bra's, and nursing tops, she will be completely set for her first year at least.
The Breastflow Starter Set includes 4 bottles- 2- 5 oz, 2- 9oz, 2-2piece Breastflow® slow-flow nipples with the nipples 2-2 piece Breastflow® medium flow nipples 4 collars, 4 milk storage lids, 1 snack container with a lid, and a bottle brush.

This is the perfect set. T Just like with breastfeeding, the baby gets to control the flow of the milk by suction and compression. So, any combination will work; Weening, supplementing, bottle feeding  with formula or breast milk, any of these will provide a more natural experience for the baby.

This is really is awesome. The nipples are a 2 part system and the texture is amazing. I am seriously wowed by the way these bottles and nipples are made.

The First Years has a few promotions I would like to share with you. When you go to the website, you can sign up for their newsletter and receive a $10 off coupon. Also Free Shipping on orders $40 or more.

You can find The First Years on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and Youtube.

These are available on Amazon Under $20 for the Breastflow Starter Set

  Pumping is very important when it comes to breastfeeding. That was my biggest problem. I couldn't get my schedule together and ended up engorged and completely miserable. An amazing company, My Great Baby, is working with us on a review of the Easy Breast Pump.

The Easy Breast Pump, is exactly that, Easy. This set is designed for comfortable and convenience. This set offers a manual pump, with a bottle and nipple and ring with it, 2 nursing pads, and also 2 milk bags for easy storage and no loss.

The hand pump is smooth and compact enough to travel with, keeping it in a diaper bag or just use it at home. This is a great pump to have. Some moms want to go the breast milk route without wanting to actually breastfeed. That's awesome too! Pumping doesn't have to be stressful. My body didn't cooperate with me so I was only able to keep up for about 2 weeks.

I remember a woman from the health department came out to my house to try to help me so I wouldn't have to come into town, I wish I remembered her name. She was so nice and helped me wrap my boobs in cabbage leaves and tea bags to try to help me get some relief. I felt like I had a gallon of milk in each boob!!

Having a breast pump so convenient to express where ever and whenever you want to is a great idea. It's small so being able to be discreet is a plus. It's compact and convenient. I wish I had one like this when I had my girls. I am so happy my niece will have such amazing products to help her on her way.

Sanitizing is simple too. The set comes with instructions but to sum it up, boil it. It can withstand the temp without warping. The booklet that comes with the pump is so helpful and breaks down all the steps and functions of the pump. I love helpful, well-written instructions.

Next on the list is a LANFEI Women Maternity Nursing Tank Top Breastfeeding Nursing Bra Camisole sold by F&W. This is so soft and has built in pads for comfort. The clasps are so easy to use just a pop-up, lift and pull down. Then when you are all done, hook on and push and it pops right back in place. 

This allows for comfortable coverage and easy access for the baby or the pump. This camisole does run a little small so please keep that in mind when ordering. 

F&W has so many maternity/nursing products and options for new and expecting moms.

The Seamless Wireless Maternity Breastfeed Nursing Bra is made to help moms to be more comfortable.


ESSENTIAL DESIGN FEATURES:adjustable straps,under bust band and wire-free design for a comfortable fit;drop down clips with retainer straps designed for easy breastfeeding;removable foam cups give you more convient,you can remove or wear anytime you need to
COMFORTABLE&SEAMLESS:Gathering at the centre front allows your bust to grow during pregnancy,Seamless look and removable thin padding offers a better fit and smooth shape.comfortable to wear all day

Nursing Pads are so important to help keep mom covered for accidents that are bound to happen.
Reusable Nursing Pads by ECO-MA - 10 Pack with FREE Laundry Bag & Bandana Bib cover all of the basics for moms. The pretty colors, the washer bag and even a bib for the baby. This is a great set. So soft!!

 One time I had a major leak at work. It was so embarrassing. I didn't even realize it happened until I turned and the lower part of my shirt touched my tummy and it was cold. I looked down and My shirt was complete soaked from my boobs to my apron tied around my waist. I was so embarrassed. I packed an extra set of clothes after that.

Nursing Blankets are so awesome too. I reviewed this one a few months ago. It has a soft texture to it. It features an extra wide panel and even a front pocket to hold and necessities.
