LazeTowel Review





Living in the "Great Lake State" our family hits the beach a lot in the summer. We camp near it, go there for day trips. And when we aren't out at the beach, we have a pool in our backyard set up every summer. With our summer time beach time, we always end up bringing towels that are meant to be "beach" towels. But are always to small to sit on our lounge chairs, or even lay on completely if we lay out on the beach, without getting some part of our body in sand. It is so annoying. My travel lounge chair is plastic, and I am always stuck trying to figure out which part of my wet body I want to stick to the chair. My husband is constantly getting irritated with how much sand ends up on him when he is trying to lay out and just dry off, because he either has to lay his legs in the sand or bring two towels to accommodate him.




Finding LazeTowel has been the perfect solution! These towels are seven and a half feet long, and just over two foot wide. They are perfect for laying out on the beach in the sand, and are designed with built in fasteners, so it will not slip off your lounge chair while you are trying to lay out and get some summer sun. I love that the LazeTowel comes with a standard size inflatable pillow, and on the towel it includes a pocket for your pillow to go in, Which can also double as a spot to put your keys and phone in when you are going to leave your towel on the beach and go into the water.








LazeTowel also comes with a drawstring carrying bag to help you keep your stuff together. Which is fantastic! LazeTowel's are made from 500 GSM ringspun Turkish cotton. They are so soft! And wash really well. They are also made with Indanthrene dyed yarn, which is chlorine resistant and also helps repel the sun. I also just want to take a moment to talk about how nicely packed these came. The boxes are very large and sturdy boxes. (My boys soon made them both into car garages). Everything was packed so neatly inside! 

The LazeTowel comes in a huge assortment of colors:

  • Green
  • Blue
  • Beige
  • Teal
  • Yellow
  • Orange
  • Pink
  • Purple

So they definitely have something for everyone.

Unique Pretzel Review and Giveaway!!



We always have some sort of pretzel in our house. My kids can eat pretzels for any snack. I personally love pretzels hard or soft dipped in yellow mustard. My husband always wants them with cheese dip. I even had a strong craving for pretzels when I was pregnant with my older son. I couldn't get enough. The problem is, not all pretzels taste all that great. I am particular when it comes to what pretzels I am eating, as well as my kids. Some are just plain gross. So, I was curious on what Unique Pretzel had to offer.






I would like to start off by talking about the Pretzel Shells. These are a unique take on the pretzel. They use their split open baking process to remove the inside of the pretzel. Which just leaves the crunchy shell. My kids and I love these! I was dipping them in mustard, and it was perfect. They can almost be described as a pretzel chip. It has a great crunch, the perfect amount of salt, and a great flavor. They don't dry out your mouth as fast as a traditional pretzel with all of the filling being gone!






Unique Pretzels also has Splits. They have a "unique" technique to make these pretzels. They let the raw dough sit out to perfection. When it is placed into the oven, there it burst open, bubbles up. This process creates crispy hollow pockets, and crunchy deep crevices. This process leaves you with a pretzel that is full of flavor. These pretzels are all not "cookie cutter." They all have a unique and different look. They are great for any pretzel lover.








Splits also has a few varieties including a 7 grain Multi grain, which has no added sugar. This pretzel isn't overly bitter, or overly sweet. It seems to be baked to a perfection of flavor. I personally think these were my favorite of the splits.












The Extra Dark Splits, are a much darker version of the original. They are darker, bolder, and crunchier then other brands. Yet the inside is still white and crunchy. My husband loved these! I didn't think they were to bad at all.



Unique Pretzel made sure they have something for everyone with their sprouted line. They have sprouted shells as well as sprouted splits. What set these apart from their original line? They are made with a wheat flour that digests more like a vegetable, because it was germinated our "sprouted."
This process makes it much easier for your body to digest, all while giving you the same great flavor. These are also produced with extra virgin olive oil. Which I think is great that they can help make something for everyone to enjoy.









Unique Pretzel also has amazing gift baskets you can order right off their page. I think that is a pretty awesome gift for any occasion for your pretzel lover.

Lovely Candy Co Review


Candy is one of my favorite things to pick me up through out the day. It is hard finding candy that is good, organic, and non gmo, and even gluten free. They have delicious alternatives to other "favorites" that taste SO MUCH BETTER! 



Lovely Candy Co.  sent me some organic lollipops to try out, as well as some chewy candies. My kids were so excited when they seen the lollipops. And I was so excited that they were organic, and even vegan. 

These lollipops are:
  • Gluten Free
  • No high fructose corn syrup
  • all natural (nothing artificial) 
They come in three great flavors: Grape, Pomegranate, and Mango. I tried all three myself. They tasted so good. Perfect size, not to big, and just enough to satisfy your sweet tooth. One bag comes with 40 lollipops. Which is a great value in my opinion.






Next, I want to talk about their chewy candy's. They are individually wrapped, and come in three flavors: Strawberry, Lemon, and Cherry. They are so good. They are so soft, much softer then other brands I have ate. I actually hid this bag from my kids, but of course my husband found it, which can be just as bad. These also are gluten free, non gmo and vegan!
These went very fast in my home.

Banz World Toddler SunGlasses Review



Summer is knocking at our door, the weather here in Michigan has finally broke and we are playing more and more outside. As a mom, I hate having my boys outside without some sunglasses for their eyes. And quite frankly, my boys love being cool in a pair of sunglasses. The problem I have found is, I end up buying so many pairs of kids sunglasses in the summer. They are typically so cheaply made, they break within a day or so. 



Banz World has been a serious life saver! They have sunglasses for children from baby all the way up to sizes my five year old can easily wear (and probably even for a while, my five year old does have a larger head). I let both of my boys each pick which pair they wanted to wear. My five year old picked out these black wraparound glasses. Which showed up in a nice black case. And even came with a strap for them to be able to sit around his neck. Which I find very convenient. He loved how his glasses had a "cool" case. He felt like such a little adult. It was perfect for him. And they fit so perfectly to his face. I love that they have a UV 400 rating that blocks out UVA A, B, and C radiation.



My younger son chose the Chameleon Blue sunglasses. They are the cutest. When you go out in the sun with them on, they turn a light green. Which I thought was so cool. My little guy thinks he is the coolest kid in town while he is walking around with these. They also have the same UV 400 rating. Which is great. And they came with a nice little storage bag.



We went out to the flea market over the weekend, and my kids wanted to wear their new shades. We were stopped every few minutes by people of all ages, complimenting and asking where we got our sunglasses from. The kids felt so cool seeing how many people thought they looked so cool.

I love that they are made well enough that they are not breaking, even with two boys using them. These are quality made, and so stylish.

Setton Farms Review




I love having healthy snacks in the house. Especially with my son just getting done for the school year a week  ago, we need to keep healthy but delicious snacks in the house. So finding these Pistachio Chewy bites from Setton Farms was a life saver.  They are the perfect for on the go, or just a quick snack. And each bar is packed with over 50% pistachios!



Here is the description right from their site: "Pistachio Chewy Bites products are all natural, bite-sized bars packed with heart healthy pistachios and antioxidant rich cranberries. They are the ideal snack for those looking for healthy and filling options in a convenient bar. The new Pistachio + Blueberry Infused Cranberry and Coconut variety is a delicious blend of pistachios, blueberry infused cranberries, coconut, and a touch of maple brown rice syrup. Packed with over 50% pistachios, each bar is filled with protein, potassium, and fiber."








I can't even describe these bars better then this. They are sweet, but not to sweet. Have the perfect blend of sweet, tart, and savory. My boys call them candy bars (Which I am completely fine with). And think they are so good. I have a few in my diaper bag for when we need a quick snack at the park, or doctors appointments that run long. I love that they are made with maple brown rice syrup. So they are not packed full of a bunch of bad corn syrup. They are very natural!

  • Gluten Free
  • Dairy Free
  • Have 5g of protein per serving
  • A good source of dietary fiber
  • Non-GMO

Travel Tray Review



Our family takes a lot of road trips around, especially in the summer. My kids love having snacks in the car, but there is never a good place for them to go. I can tell you after just cleaning out my car recently. I could of probably fed two children a good meal of snacks just from what came out from under my seat from spills. It drives me nuts! So I was so excited to see the travel tray.



The travel tray is designed to fit into the cup holder of your child's car seat, or even your car's cup holder. (there is a removable cover to help with the size if needed). Then you, or your child is able to still have a space for their drink. Plus a small tray for snacks. I also found this to be great to hold other things, such as crayons and hot wheels.





I also love that you can get the travel tray in an assortment of colors. 

  • Red
  • Blue
  • White
  • Beige
  • Black
  • Charcoal
  • Orange 
  • Pink
  • Purple
  • Teal
  • Yellow

The travel tray is:

Dishwasher safe on the top rack. Able to accommodate different size drinks, 100% food grade safe. The cup holder is more stabilized to help you not spill your drink.

Gary Poppins Popcorn Review













In my house, popcorn is typically the snack of choice for at least two of the people here. My husband and oldest son could eat popcorn every day, all day without hesitation. I, personally, prefer the sweeter popcorns. While they prefer savory flavors. So I was so happy when we were able to try out Gary Poppins variety mix.


The variety mix of Gary Poppins is perfect for anyone who loves different flavors, or in a house that is divided like mine. It is a ten bag mix of flavors. The flavors include:

  • 1 bag of creamery butter
  • 1 bag of kettle corn
  • 1 bag of white cheddar jalapeno
  • 3 bags of caramel cheddar kettle
  • 2 bags of classic caramel
  • 2 bags of classic cheddar





My husband first tried out the white cheddar jalapeno, while I tried the caramel cheddar kettle. I tried one piece of his first bag. I am not personally much of a jalapeno lover, but this wasn't to bad. The jalapeno flavor was there, but not over powering. The caramel cheddar kettle had the best mixture of salty and sweet. The kettle corn is perfect. The caramel corn is probably some of the best I have ever had. And the cheddar had so much flavor. I loved that I did not run into a bunch of hard kernels in the bag. There was no weird after taste or film in your mouth like I have experienced with other brands of pre made popcorn. Simply delicious.



Other great information about Gary Poppins:


  • They are family owned and operated. 
  • Proudly made in the USA 
  • Handcrafted, one small batch at a time. 
  • Made fresh daily
  • Made with Whole Grain and NON-GMO Corn



We have now tried all of the flavors. My boys have even gotten into the popcorn. And kept wanting to go back for more. The size of the bags are the perfect snack size for anyone.
