Combi Join Soft Carrier Review



I can't even begin to tell you over the past 13 years of being a mother, how many different types and styles of baby carriers I have tried. I have owned multiple, trying to find the most comfortable one for me. The safest one for the baby. Over the years, I have had the wrap carriers, which I could never seem to get tight enough to make me feel like I was securely holding my child. There was the one carrier I had years ago, that my son actually almost fell out completely.



Carriers come in handy so often. I actually am not a huge fan of a stroller, when you can just strap your baby onto you and go. There is no worrying about pushing the stroller, fitting through spaces. Or somehow becoming invisible when you are using a stroller. That was a huge struggle for me.

The Combi Join Soft Carrier is the perfect carrier for any parent, new or the old pro that is adding another little bundle into their family. I love that they have an infant pad insert, so you can start using your carrier as soon as one month old. This pad will keep the baby's "m" shape on their legs. It also supports their upper body. As well as keeps your little one in a comfortable position.


Another great feature of the Combi Join Soft Carrier, is that you have a napping hood. A huge problem I had with wraps, is when your little one was napping you could either not see their face, or their head was just hanging out. Either way didn't seem safe or comfortable. The napping hood can help your little one have a peaceful nap, all while you can easily check them when you need.





As the baby grows, you have four different positions all with the one carrier you can use for your child. So it will work no matter what, and you don't end up with a slew of different carriers for different ages and positions. These positions are:

  • Infant pad insert 
  • Front inward carry
  • piggy carry
  • side carry



The Combi Join Soft Carrier can be used starting at one month with the infant insert, or four months without it. And is weight tested for up to 33 lbs. Age up to 36 months. I think this is a great value for an all in one carrier.

Chefman Perfect Pop Volcano Popcorn Maker Review






Popcorn in my family is serious business. My eldest son eats it almost every single night. It is the men in my lives go to snack. Even when my eldest isn't feeling well I can always get him to eat some popcorn. The problem to me is, our current popcorn maker you have to put so much oil in to make it pop your popcorn. I am actually the only one in my household that can get the thing to pop the corn. All this oil is not only super unhealthy for my family, but it makes such a nasty mess. I absolutely hate that machine.
Chefman has come to the rescue with the coolest popcorn maker that my whole family can use. When this came in the mail and my eldest first seen the box, I knew right then it was time to test it out. I quickly unpacked and washed and dried everything out to make sure that it was clean and ready to go. My son had already pulled out the popcorn. I told him to hold the oil, and he was in shock that we could do this without it. I started to assemble the Volcano Popcorn Maker. Which was super simple. I was so happy to see that it came with its own measuring cup, so there was no guessing on if you had to many or to few kernels.


My son measured the kernels out with the measuring cup, and I showed him where to dump them. He was so excited. By this time, the entire family was around the Volcano Popcorn Maker, just so we could watch how fast this baby would go. Our old popper could take up to ten minutes just to start popping corn. Much to our surprise, it didn't take long at all to have her all put together, on, and popping. Much less time then normal. I love that it all pops right into a built in bowl. So there is no worry about messy transfers. And you can see exactly how much you have.





We seasoned our popcorn according to our likes. I was so happy that it did not leave any one with greasy little fingers. I also love what a breeze it is to clean up when you are done. Anything to give me less mess, and more time with my family is a winner in my book. I didn't have little boys running around with greasy popcorn fingers touching everything around the house. This is the perfect popcorn machine. It is much better then ones we have had in the past. And is definitely our new go to machine.

Hot Tools/ Dr. Teals Review

As a busy mom of boys, I am constantly trying to figure out a way to make my hair cute without taking a bunch of time up in the bathroom. I am not very good with a curling iron. I can straighten my hair, or pull it back. That was about as far as it goes, until now. The Hot Tools Professional Deep Waver with Ceramic Tourmaline is so easy to use on my hair. I have super thick hair, it usually takes FOREVER to do anything to it. This waver can get up to 430 degrees to make sure to be able to work with any hair type. It has pulse technology to get hot and stay hot while you are using it. Some things that I absolutely love about the Deep Waver are:

  • The eight foot swivel cord- I now don't have to worry about finding an outlet close to a mirror to be able to do my hair. 
  • Rheostat Control Dial- This has variable heat settings from 280-430 degrees depending on your hair type. 
  • Locking switch locks plates together. This helps you store more conveniently. 
  • The plates are extra deep to help give you deeper and more luxurious waves. 
  • Separate on and off switch
  • Cool Tips to help make handling easier. 
  • A recessed thumb grip for a more comfortable secure grip
You can find this and other great tools for your hair here






The next thing I would like to talk about is these Dr. Teal's Ultra Moisturizing Bath Bombs. I love taking baths. It is one of my favorite ways to relax, especially after a long day of two boys wrestling with me and each other. It is a great way to decompress. These Dr. Teal's Coconut Oil bath bombs are the perfect way to relax and help unwind. When I received my package, I was amazed that you could smell the sweet smell of coconut through the packaging. I just couldn't stop smelling the bag. I put one in a bath that first night. I was in love. I have definitely hid these from my husband and kids. I thought they would leave my skin feeling greasy and gross, but it was great. I felt soft, smooth and refreshed. These contain deep nourishing coconut oil. As well as nutrient rich and ultra moisturizing: Almond oil, jojoba oil and sunflower oil.
You can find out more about these, here.





Dr. Teal's also has a great selection in bubble bath. This Deep Marine Sea Kelp Foaming Bath makes your skin feel so great. It has pure epsom salt and essential oils in it to help purify and hydrate your skin. This is gentle enough that I have no worries using it with my kids, but I also like to use it for myself. My husband even got on bored after a long day at work. He said he really felt a lot better and refreshed after soaking for about forty five minutes in a bubble bath with this. It has lemongrass and orange essential oils in it to help soothe your senses. It smells so good, and so refreshing.

Performabrand Shaker Bottle Review







My husband and I have been trying to have more shakes and healthy meal replacements to our diets. We have shaker bottles, but they drive me bananas. I also end up losing the balls or messing them up. We always end up getting our cups confused. Which can lead to us drinking each others shakes. It is just a big mess. Finding the amazing selection of Shaker Bottles from Performabrand has been a life saver for us.







I chose two bottles out of the Marvel Original Series on the Performabrand page. Though these are not the only cool bottles they have. There is a huge selection of different brands for their bottles including:


  •  MLB
  • WWE
  • DC Comics
  • GI Joe
  • Worlds Strongest Man
  • Star Wars
  • PBR
  • Spartan Race
  • Marvel


You can literally find something for anyone here. I love the shaker part in the middle the most. It is not your traditional big metal ball. It is connected to the inside of your cup. I thought this may effect the way you mix your drinks. But I was wrong. These are fantastic. I also love the quality of these cups. Typically, when you start washing your shaker bottles, the graphics start scratching off easily. Not with these. My husband loves his Hulk bottle. I love the colors on both of the bottles. They are so bright and vibrant. There is no more confusion in our home. Or when he takes his to work.

Karma Wellness Water Review





I am personally trying to work on bettering my health. I know that a huge part of this is drinking a lot of water, but my body just doesn't love the non flavor of water. I can drink it if it is ice ice cold. Beyond that, I am not a huge fan. Finding Karma Wellness Water, has been such a blessing. This is water, but so much more.







I was sent five different flavors to check out. Each flavor of Karma is meant for different things to help you through your day. The first one, Pineapple Coconut is meant to help with healthy hydration. Now, when I first opened the box I will say I was confused on where the flavor was. I took my pictures then placed them in the fridge to get cold. When I pulled this first bottle out and went to actually open it, I then noticed the lid is holding all the flavor and vitamins. Then my fear is, is this going to taste like a child's vitamin crushed up into a bottle? Nope, I was so far from wrong. There is no bitter flavor, it isn't overly sweet either. They taste perfect.


With the cap, you simply push down on the top of it, the flavor will release into the bottle. You shake it up, to mix it up. Then open and drink. There are six natural varieties of these drinks. They provide 110% of 7 essential vitamins. And at only 20 calories per bottle, you know you are not going to go over if you are counting calories.








 The vitamins in every bottle are:

  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin B3
  • Vitamin B5
  • Vitamin B6
  • Vitamin B12
  • Vitamin D
  • Vitamin E


Each flavor has a function:


  • Fitness Accelerator ( Raspberry Guava Jackfruit) 
  • Natural Lift (Tropical Burst) 
  • Sharper Thinking (Orange Mango) 
  • Mood Elevation (Green Tea Passionfruit) 
  • Immunity Booster (Acai Pomegranate) 
  • Healthy Hydration (Pineapple Coconut) 






Between my husband and I, we have tried all the flavors. My husband actually prefers Karma opposed to his normal routine of energy drinks that he has in a day.  My personal favorite was the Fitness Accelerator. It was great to drink while I was doing my morning workout. My husband thought the Sharper Thinking and Healthy Hydration were delicious. 




I love that Karma is sweet enough to take my soda cravings away, and tasty enough that I want to keep going back for more. I also love that it is curbing some of my husbands addiction to his energy drinks.

Ellovi Review






I am constantly looking for something simple that will work well with my and my husbands dry skin. It seems like no matter what I try it is either super greasy and gross, doesn't absorb well into my skin, or it just doesn't work. That was until I discovered ellovi. Ellovi sent me three great products to check out: their vanilla butter, ginger lemon lip butter, and vanilla lip butter. 





The first thing that I tried out was the ellovi butter. I was impressed when I opened the jar that the smell was soft and suttle. I also loved that it was thick, so a little goes a long way. I put some on immediately, it was not greasy. It rubbed nicely into my skin. So then I had to show my husband when he had come home from a long day of work. He was excited to try this on his rough elbow skin. What I think I love the most about ellovi butter, is that it only consists of six ingredients.



The six ingredients in the ellovi butter are all Non-GMO and are:

  • Hemp
  • Shea
  • Coconut
  • Macadamia
  • Marula
  • Cornstarch

Now, with the lip butters, I typically have a problem where I am constantly putting more and more on because my lips just never feel like they are feeling any better. I also hate when the feeling is waxy on your lips. With ellovi lip butter, I don't have that problem at all. The flavors are great. Not super strong. Again with only six ingredients. Which is all the same as the body butter except it is sunflower rather then cornstarch.

All of the products I have tried from ellovi seem to be well priced, as well as great feeling on your skin and lips. With even my husband enjoying them. We now leave the body butter next to the bed to put on before we go to sleep at night.
