Women Long Sleeve Printing Top Review

You know how i am with fashion. I love clothes. I love being able to work with amazing companies and try new styles and totally rock them. I recently worked with perfashion on a really pretty top and I think it's perfect for this time of year to wear it.

We went from 93° last week to  high of 67° today. This is the perfect weather for light weight long sleeves and maybe a jacket. This is weather-wise, my favorite time of year. 

The top is a Women Long Sleeve Printing Top. It is completely open until I close it with the tie. The sleeves are to the wrist and offer good coverage without drowning my hands. The wrists aren't too tight and one this I really do like a lot is that the shoulder area is not restricting at all.

The hip length on the top looks great with jeans or leggings. I like it that I can tie it loose or tie it tight to show the hourglass shape I have worked so hard for. 

The string goes through the side very inconspicuously. The hole is reinforced and there is no fraying or anything. It is just a really nice design.

The print is very pretty. and looks nice all over, it's assembled evenly. What I like about it best is that I don't have to tug on it while I walk bend or reach for anything.

Bluebee Pals Leo the Lion Review

How do you know when your child is ready for a smart device like a tablet, laptop, or phone? That is a HUGE controversy in our house. My oldest daughter didn't get a phone or any major electronics until she was 11. Our youngest daughter got her first device at 8.

For us, it wasn't so much the responsibility aspect of it. They are both very responsible and care for their products with respect and stay within their guidelines we set for them. Abby didn't have to wait to get hers because of maturity, she got it because of need. She was staying at friends houses, I worked a lot, we needed to have communication.

Cassie didn't get hers because of responsibility or maturity either. By the time Cassie got to that age, everything was booming into technology. When Abby was Cassie's age, smartphones were mainly for working people, not kids. It is absolutely amazing to me that when I was their age, call waiting was new!

Nowadays, it's super common for 3 and 4-year-olds to have smart devices, phones, and you name it. Not to mention, it's normal. 10 years ago, I would have had so many things to say about a toddler playing with a device of any kind.

Education is advancing so fast now. Where I was learning how to do typing with my home keys as an elective class in high school, my kids were taught computer basics in 2nd grade. My 3-year-old niece already knows which icon to push for her play app. This is all so amazing to me.

I am pro-education. I am so happy the kids are learning more. I was lucky enough to work with an amazing company, Bluebee Pals . I picked out Leo the Lion, there are six pals to choose from in the Bluebee Pals Shop. It was so hard to choose which one to review, they are all so cute!!

  • Hudson The Puppy
  • Leo the Lion
  • Lily The Lamb
  • Parker the Monkey
  • Riley The Zebra
  • Sammy The Bear

As soon as I opened the package, I was more than impressed. I flipped the switch to on and he said:
 My Name is Bluebee, please pair and connect me using the Bluetooth located on your device.- Connection Succeeded. 
Yes, so you know and it is confirmed, Mind Blown!!

This super soft plush lion is instructing me on how to get him to talk to me. Just so you know the age range on this guy is 3-8 but I think he  is my new BFF.

Instantly, the Bluebee Pals came up on my Bluetooth list, it was very easy to connect. I was typing while I was going through the process of setting it all up and during the wait for me to get myself ready, he says reminders. "No one is here, Please try again".

I installed the iStoryBooks App and was instantly listening to Leo read me stories. This is amazing. The volume is controlled by the device so there is no digging for buttons or opening up is back and performing surgery to operate this guy. This is by far the coolest Bluetooth toy I have reviewed to this point.

He was reading story's with the words at the bottom and the pages turned on their own and he kept up with the pages, it was really compared to some other reading dolls that only gave so much time to get to the next page

I installed Spotify and he was singing us some amazing ballads from way back in the day. This little guy surely has a voice!! He sang us songs from the Hair Band Era. He is a hard rocker!! Don't let the soft fur and flowing mane fool you.

I also installed ABC Mouse to see how well he helps with educational apps. This is just an all the way around amazing learning tool.

Calling my child through Leo is going to be awesome. We called it during the testing and it's just so fun. The on off is in his ear it's so easy to access.

There were no kids taking part in the setup and getting this guy ready. We wanted to be familiar with him and how he works so there wouldn't be any surprises when we gift him. Aron and I sat here and played with him seeing how well he works for over 2 hours, having a blast at all of the awesome ballads he can sing.

What makes this so great is that its' Bluetooth, not wifi. So, as long as we can Bluetooth him to the device, there is no lapse in connection to him. Bluebee Pals are compatible with so many apps and everything with a Bluetooth connection.

Out of 5 stars, I would give this 10! This is an amazing learning tool and companion for a child. The age range on the Bluebee Pals is 3-8, I would recommend it for all ages 3 and up. He is interactive, entertaining, super soft, and absolutely adorable.

The price in these guys is very reasonable. $64.95 and they are available at, Amazon, Target, and Walmart. These are going to be a great Gift idea this year.

Just.... Hampton Creek

In this day and time there are so many trends and fads out there. I'm so glad to see that one of them is a healthier lifestyle, eating healthier and taking better care of our bodies. I am definitely on that bandwagon. I am a real label reader, always trying to find foods and ingredients that are natural and no chemical preservatives. I'm happy to have found a company that feels the same way that I do. Hampton Creek is a great company, with a wonderful plan. They produce healthy foods at affordable prices. Their products are available at your local grocery stores.

Hampton Creek makes several flavors of  Just Mayo. There's original, Chipotle, Garlic,  and Sriracha. All are made with healthy ingredients, and a flavor to satisfy even the most discriminating taste buds, not to mention it's lower in cholesterol. Imagine how delicious a big sandwich with that mayo, your favorite sandwich meat, a slice of tomato and crisp crunchy lettuce would be. YUM!

Hampton Creek makes yummy cookies too, Just Cookies. Just because you're trying to eat healthier doesn't mean you have to deny your sweet tooth. These cookies are made with wholesome, healthy ingredients. They make Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter, Sugar and Oatmeal Raisin cookies. I have read all the ingredients on the labels and they're all healthy and no chemical preservatives.

They also sell Just Cookie Dough if you prefer  baking cookies yourself rather than buying them already baked. Are you ready for this? Their cookie dough is safe to eat raw! Oh my goodness! That is a dream come true for all of us cookie dough lovers! One of the not so secret ingredients in the cookie dough is sorghum. Sorghum is a grain that grows tall like corn but uses only a fraction of the water to grow. Chef's  turn it into a syrup, grind it into flour, cook it like risotto, and Hampton Creek uses it as the magic behind their cookie dough.

All of their products are verified nonGMO, which I know is a big concern for many people. A GMO, in case you don't know, is a genetically modified organism. It is a plant, animal or organism whose genetic makeup has been modified using gene splicing, gene modification, or transgenetic technology. This relatively new science produces that are unstable combinations of plants, animals or organisms that do not occur in nature of from traditional crossbreeding. Most developed countries do not consider GMOs to be safe , although the US and Canada have approved GMOs  based on studies that have been conducted by the same corporations that invented them and profit from their sale. I am glad to see that Hampton Creek is part of the non-GMO project .

I have been all over Hampton Creek's web site and it is very easy to use, there's a contact us page, and even a phone number if you have any questions, and a locator to find stores near you that carry their products.One of my favorite things on their site is recipes, all kinds of recipes. I love to cook and I'm always looking for new ideas to use in my kitchen. Some of these sound really good and most are easy to make. For example Just French Onion Dip, 1 cup of Just Mayo, 1/4 teaspoon of onion powder, 1/8 teaspoon of garlic powder, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix all the ingredients and serve with fresh veggies or chips. One of the recipes that I really want to try is Just Potato Salad with Carmelized Onions. It sounds so good and the instructions sound fairly easy.

In this day and time, with the economy being what it is, it's so nice to find a company that has genuine concern for their products, using quality healthy ingredients and keeping the cost of buying them to an affordable price. Most people in this country eat junk food because it usually cheaper to buy processed, chemically laden foods than buying fresh or natural foods. Hampton Creek makes eating right fit into your budget, and makes it enjoyable because it tastes great. For me that's a win/win.  I can keep my family happy with good food and my pocket book from being empty at the same time. You sure can't ask for much more than that from a company, quality natural ingredients, great tasting food and all at an affordable price. Great job Hampton Creek, you are serving your customers well. Here's to your health as well!

Awesome Travel Accessories For Kids

Traveling with kids can be so tricky sometimes. We have so much stuff to do all the time, we spend a lot of time on the road. This year we are planning a long road trip to visit our family out of state for Thanksgiving. It's a lot longer that the 1-2 hour trips we take regularly. This will be 12 hours each way. It's going to be exciting. I can't wait to see how many times Cassie asks if we are there yet.

I have been trying to find things that will make our trip easier and have found one that is going to be an asset for sure. This isn't just for the long trips, this is great all the time!

Backseat Car Organizer For Kids by Kuddley Kids is just what we needed. Cassie has so much stuff that she wants to bring with us already and this for one, has set a limit on what she can bring. We made the deal that if it fits in the organizer, she can bring it with us. YAY

This has so many awesome pockets that hold so much stuff! Really, she will be able to bring a whole assortment of stuff with her but making hr have it in the organizer before we leave lets her know without me having to say, it fits in there, pick up the back seat.

The straps are perfect to go around my headrest an d the base of my seat. We have had a few bigger car seat organizers but they are too bulky for our car they fit great in our van and jeep but this is the first one that fits in our car.

I love the detachable pocket. She has that filled with crayons and markers and all of the arty stuff that's allowed in the car. (No Glue or Paint). She can detach it and sit with her in lap and get as crafty as she wants.

She can fit her Beary and Piggy in the big pocket, these guys have not left her side since she was 4 years old. Her drinks fit in the side pouches. Her tablet fits in the center pouch with her charger and earbuds. This has so many awesome sized pockets that she has options AND limits on what she can have in the car.

The stencil set she's bringing with are from Waylane. She loves these. They are sturdy, not flimsy. She can trace the shapes and customize her pretty art creations. She has so many great ideas and spends most of her spare time on youtube trying to find more ways to get those arty designs alive.

The set came with 6 templates that are so easy to use. The templates are firm and easy for keeping place with a pen or pencil, it doesn't bend so the shape is misshapen.

This awesome set comes with sea life, zoo life, barn life, shapes, and vehicles. It is such an awesome set!

These are awesome travel companions. I received them for free in exchange for an honest, unbiased review. If you have any questions about these products, please feel free to email us directly at [email protected] or [email protected]

5 Amazing Baby Products That Grow With Your Baby

I hope you have been reading lately, we have a very special delivery coming into our family. My niece is expecting a baby boy in November. I have been working with so many amazing companies to get ready for his arrival. I was able to work with a few companies on some amazing breastfeeding accessories, Top 6 Breastfeeding Essentials For New and Expecting Moms

This post is about some of those wanted products that will be great for your growing baby. 
Starting with the Islands Miracle Essential Oil Diffuser. This is something that will be a good thing to have forever. The essential oils that make us calm, relaxed, and comfortable are oils like Lavender, Tea Tree Oil, and  Chamomile Oil. The automatic shut off is perfect for the peace of mind I like with it being in a kids room. 

The Islands Miracle Essential Oil Diffuser comes has several different LED colors so, it's a fun helper. A night light combined with an amazing tool. When my girls were little they suffered from chapped skin and even bloody noses in the dry air. That is so scary. The cool mist in the diffuser helps keep the moisture in the air to keep the baby's skin and sinuses clear. This is an amazing asset to have.

This is better than the vaporizer we had a few months ago (that burned out after 3 days),  It's quiet, has a 6 hour run time, and an automatic shut off. It's a compact design too. That's nice for us because I don't have to worry about it taking up so much room. This is an amazing product. 

The Fitted Organic Crib Sheet, Set of 2 is awesome for any standard crib. I love the soft grey and white colors. They are perfect for both genders. This beautiful set of sheets is so soft and has such a cute design on it. I love the way they are made. Not only will they go in a crib but also fit on a toddler bed when the little one transitions over to a big kid. 

Your Perfect Grab-and-Go Diaper Bag (Grey) is a beautiful bag that will be with you for years to come.  It has so many pockets and an awesome amount of storage for all of the necessities. 

This is the perfect bag for breastfeeding moms that need to carry a pump and extra stuff on their daily adventures. The presentation of this bag is awesome. It came securely wrapped in a plastic pink bag. Inside, a very pretty soft pink gift bag, inside is the prize, the beautiful gray diaper bag with pink accents. It's just a great way to receive a product.

Whether you are a mom buying yourself the bag or buying it as a gift, it's just as pretty to give as it is to receive. That is one thing I absolutely love about this. The company used a very well thought production on this. 

The lightweight and very sturdy bag gives enough space to make sure there is room for everything without the bulky, heavy load as some of the other bags I have seen recently. The 9 pieces included in this a set is what makes it so spectacular. This even comes with a buggy strap, they thought of everything. No worry of floor dirt and bringing it home! 

The clutch is easy to carry for quick trips to the store that you don't want to carry the whole diaper bag. 

The pockets and storage compartments in this diaper bag were also very well thought. They are plenty wide for fumbling hands in a hurry. A separate secret pocket for dirty clothes so they are not on top of the clean clothes. That is always a plus! Bottle pockets, zipper pockets and mesh pockets. This bag is made for storage and organization. 

I think that this is a great bag for daily use and traveling. From the beginning and bringing the baby home from the hospital, this is the only bag that we will need until we don't need a diaper bag anymore. It's awesome to find a product made with such great quality. 

The straps are nice and comfortable too. I love the options I have with this bag. 
Berlando- White and Gray Newborn Baby Blanket is a very very soft!  I love this beautiful baby blanket. There is just something so soothing about the velvety soft texture of this blankey. 

The white and gray on one side and the solid white on the other makes this the perfect snuggle blanket. I love the presentation. It has a pretty gray bow tied around it to turn the blanket into it's own gift wrap. 
3 Pack Black + White Muslin Swaddle Blanket Set I love these sweet blankets. Swaddling is the best way to comfort the baby to help him feel safe and secure. This is the perfect set for a gift. She loves them. The are gender neutral so either way, this is a great set to have gotten her. 
The colors and patterns are so nice. The black and white patterns are great for a visual stimulant. Very nice for all the right reasons.

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.
