Mint-X


My husband and I just recently purchased our first home. When we moved it, we were all excited! This is definitely going to be our forever home. I love this house. Our first night here, we didn't have everything unpacked, so we decided that we would sleep in the living room. Well, I decided to sleep on the floor. As I went to lay down, I seen this little not so cute mouse run into my living room. I immediately jumped back onto our couch and spent the rest of my night looking for this mouse from the couch, scared it was going to eat my toe off. 


In the weeks since, we have been working to get the old tenants (mice) out of our home. I had seen evidence of them making their way onto my counter tops. And even in my trash. So, I contacted Mint-X to see if I could maybe deter them from at least the trash while trying to work on getting them to move out, or reach their fatality. 


When I received them to try, I immediately knew before opening the package what it actually was. There was a strong scent of mint. Not so strong that you didn't want to be around it, but strong enough to know it was there. I actually love the smell of mint, so this was no bother to me. I immediately changed out trash bags. The smell after the first day, went away for the most part. It was not bad at all. It was the day I put the Mint-X  trash bag in my trash can, the mice left it alone. 

In weeks since, I have gotten rid of the rodent problem in my home. But I did want to give it two more test. With having a one year old, he has some terrible smelling diapers. I put his dirty diapers in this trash bag, and the mint smell masked the odor of his smelly diapers. Which was great for me, I don't like to smell that at all. Not even when I am actually changing him. 


The last test I wanted to do is leave trash outside in the Mint-X trash bag. We do have opossums, raccoon's, and other small rodents in my neighborhood. I have seen them get into plenty of peoples trash cans. So, I wanted to see if they would get into a bag of trash that I left outside, with no trash can barrier for them to have to also get through. I wanted to see, would this really work. So, I did. I left the trash outside for three days, on the ground next to my garage. All three days, the bag stayed in the same place, nothing came around it at all. It was great.

    Glowbug Diaper Review

    I will admit, I have used a lot of disposable diapers on my son. I was very misinformed when I was pregnant. When I thought of a cloth diaper, I thought of the little pins, and having to learn how to fold the diaper just right.


    I then stumbled upon Glow Bug Cloth Diapers. These diapers are amazing. Let me tell you a bit more about them. Each diaper has enough snaps to fit four different sizes, which is a size bigger then your average cloth diaper. It also has three sets of rise snaps, to make for a better fit for your child. 
    Another thing I like about glow bug diapers, is they come in adorable designs. My son spends a lot of time in just a diaper. He doesn't like to really wear clothing. So, I hate when he is just running around in a disposable diaper. When he plays outside in one, the diaper ends up getting ruined from the dirt and everything, so you have to change it, even if it isn't necessary. Which to me is just money down the drain.  
    I also love the fact that when my son is wearing this diaper, I don't have to worry about putting something else on him for when he wants to play in the pool and the water. So the cost of those expensive swim diapers, out the door. 
    I like that they fit under his clothes well. And with the 360 degree gusset, I don't have to worry about him leaking through his clothes. My little guy is one heavy wetter. Wetting through the average diaper, sometimes within an hour. He usually will wake up soaked in the morning or after a nap, but with this diaper, I have not seen him wet through yet. 
    I would highly recommend glow bug diapers to anyone having a baby, or even anyone who still has a baby in diapers. 

    I would like to also add, if you have any questions about making the change. The website is very resourceful in helping you make the right decision. Without trying to sell you anything else.

    Lee Jeans Review


    Are you looking for a timeless, classic and stylish pair of pants? Look no further! I have found them for you! Lee Jeans. And now for a history lesson, because I like to know where my clothes started. 

    The Lee Mercantile Company was founded in 1889. Henry David Lee opened his first factory in Salina, Kansas. Mr. Lee started his business by producing dungarees and jackets. 

    In 1913, Mr. Lee's company started to produce the "Union-All" jumpsuit. Soon after in 1920 came the first ever "Overall". This laid the foundation for Lee's growth early on. The Lee Company also launched the Buddy Lee doll in 1920 to be used for promotional use.  This became a very popular doll to play with quite fast. 

    Lee continued to introduce more great and new things with manufactured denim. They became well known for their zipper fly. By the 40's they had become the nations top brand for work clothes. 

    Fast Forwarding to now, Lee's have great well made jeans and other products for everyone in the family. 

    I received the Sadie Boot Cut, which is part of the modern series. It is meant for curvy girls (such as myself) I tried these jeans on, they fit like a glove. I typically have problems with my pants sitting to low in the back, so when I sit, I am exposed. I never have that problem in these jeans. They are comfortable. They are a bit long, but I have fixed that myself. I definitely can't wear the short jeans because I am to tall. But the normal jeans are a bit to long. I also have had many compliments in them. They make me feel good, and make me look good. 

    The second pair I was lucky to be able to review were the Slender Secret Arlo Bootcut. These fit just perfect as well. They go just high enough in the back that when I sit down, nothing shows. I also love that both pairs of Lee jeans I reviewed can be dressed up or down. There is no end for what you can do with some denim. I absolutely love how comfortable these fit. The color is perfect. My husband also said that these jeans made my bottom look great!




    I received a pair of Lee Jeans to try, and I was just in love. The fit was perfect. Like they were tailored right for my personal body. There was a little bit of elastic in the denim to make it so they would hug you in all the right places. I could not have asked for a better jean. There was a great design on the back of the jeans, which I wanted to make sure the gems would stay on, and washed them a few times. They did great. I just love these. I can wear them on any given day, or dress them up if I need too. Lee Jeans are really perfect in every day. The zipper isn't as long as most jeans I have tried, which is great for my short stature, and perfect length. 

    Skights Review


    Lil’ Tights are so practical in so many different ways! They can be used from pre-walking days until your little guy or gal is past being a toddler. A lot of kids go through the “I don’t want to wear clothes phase” and skights. Lil’ Tights provide coverage and warmth without making your little one wear too many layers of clothes. And they are absolutely adorable! They are basically crotchless tights. These would be super cute with cloth diapers or any decorated diaper! 

    Image
      

    Around the word Skights, located by the knee of the tights is the ‘stay put’ design to keep the Lil’ tights on your little one while worn.  Lil’ tights by Skights are made of stretchy Lycra and Spandex (75% Cotton, 22% Nylon, 3% Lycra) and come in 6 fun and vibrant colors; Candy Apple Red, Flash Black, Morning Glory (Light Blue), Lil’ Peanut (Orange), Lil’ Pumpkin (Black/Orange), and Turtle Dove (Dark Green). 

    Image 

     Lil’ tights by Skights come in three sizes, Small – 9 to 18 months, Medium – 18 to 30 months, and Large – 30 to 48 months and sell for $14.99 CDN for 1 pair, $27.99 CDN for 2 pairs and $39.99 CDN for 3 pairs. If you’re in the USA and would like to place an order go ahead and use the online form, the nice people over at Skights will get back to you within 24 hours to let you know how much shipping will be.  


    I tried these on my son, He hates wearing pants, and with it getting colder out I thought it would be perfect. He loves them. He likes sliding around on his knees in out kitchen, but hurts his bare knees when he does it. He also loves running around in them just a diaper and his skights. They are so colorful and great. 



    While you’re online also make sure to stop by and LIKE Lil’ tights by Skights onFacebookand follow onTwitter– stay up to date with any promotions and new products as they become available.

    Janiebee Nap-mat review and giveaway hosted by Mom's Gone Bronson

    An original review by Mom's Gone Bronson

    I LOVE the idea of getting children to take a nap throughout the day, but it isn't always easy to get them to go to bed to do it - nor do most children want to just nap on the floor, unless they are already overly tired and ready to drop! 

    If you've wondered what the next big thing in creature comforts for children at nap-time is, then you've certainly found it with Janiebee.com

    Janiebee.com has a wide selection of quilted nap-mats for children, which are incredibly cute from top to bottom, with a soft sectioned pad for sleeping, filled with 2" polyester quilters' batting [and zero foam whatsoever!].

    These adorable nap mats measure 20" - 21" across and are 53"-55" long, with an attached Minky brand dimpled blanket, topped with a comfortable pillow that hosts a side opening to allow that it be removed and washed separately between washes of the mat, which is fully machine washable on its own terms, as well!

    I ordered the Ricky Racoon Nap Mat, from Janiebee.com last week and it arrived swiftly and safely packaged and [from the moment it came out of that box] it was a huge hit in our home! My daughter immediately took to the mat and wanted to get into bed and go to sleep! Before I had even a second to decide which of my children might like it, I think it had found a home on its own!  

    My daughter is 4 years old in February and she outgrew her older nap mat as it was a lot shorter than this one and so I was pleasantly surprised to see that his mat is so much bigger than her that she will easily get a few years out of this mat and she has a lot of room to grow! 

    Not only is my daughter comfortable within the nap mat but she truly adores the pattern, too - she is a giant animal lover and so the Ricky Racoon design had her jumping with excitement and she couldn't be happier to lie down for a nap now that she had a new, comfortable place to do so, without having to take herself off to her bedroom and away from the rest of the family!

    This nap mat, and all nap mats sold at Janiebee.com, are up to standard with safety and pass government regulations and are a great bed-away-from-home to take camping, to use at sleepovers or even grandma's house - my daughter wants to take hers everywhere and just lounge on it while she flips through a book or plays at home.

    Janiebee nap mats make it into our Holiday Gift Guide this year, so why not head on over to Janiebee.com now and pick one up for your little-one this season!
