Lemongrass Spa Review Holiday Gift Guide!

Being a stay at home mom now, I don't get a chance to really go out and pamper my self anymore. This was something that I did miss. As all of you ladies know, doing something selfless just once in a while feels so great. It truly rejuvenates you. Since becoming a stay at home mom, our budget isn't as cushy as it used to be, so I have cut out any thing that is deemed "unnecessary" from our budget. 

Well, when I found Lemongrass Spa I was so overjoyed. I could still have a bit of a spa day, right here in my home! 


A little bit more about Lemongrass Spa. They are a wonderful company, where you are able to set up to host a party. How fun is that, get you and your girlfriends over, and get things to pamper yourself. Or you can order their products online and have them delivered right to your door. 

I was able to review the Slumber Party Collection. This has a body polish that comes in three different scents. Grapefruit Lily (what I chose) Pomegranate or Tangerine. This kit also includes a travel face kit, herbal foot kit sampler, and a two ounce bottle of lotion that goes with the same scent as your body polish. This is enough for you to enjoy this kit with two to three people. 


This kit was so cute when it came in the mail. I was so happy to receive it. I just knew, a small vacation in the bathroom was coming! 

I started by trying the body polish. It smells great! It is a sweet sugary scrub to help exfoliate places such as your elbows, feet, and is even great right before shaving your legs. This left my elbows and feet feeling so smooth when I was finished. I could feel it rubbing the dead skin off my feet. 

Next I would like to discuss the facial kit. This is great. I am so happy that everything came with step by step directions. There is a mask that you can put on and leave on for five to ten minutes. It left my face feeling completely refreshed. 


I am a girl who doesn't like to wear shoes in the summer. So when it came to the feet kit, I am sure my feet were so happy to be getting some love instead of all of the sand, grass and dirt they are usually in. Again, everything was very simple to follow. And don't think because they are travel sizes you won't have enough. There is plenty there to go around. 

I used the lotion for a final touch, and I felt like I was in heaven. Though it was a short "Spa Day" in my bathroom, only while my little guy napped. I got done and felt completely refreshed before he woke up.

Aqua Dragons Holiday Gift Guide!


Looking for a pet for your kiddos this year for Christmas? Don't want to have to train a dog, clean a litter box, or a cage. And those little angels just won't get off your back about how they will do everything to take care of a pet! 

I have the answer! Not only are Aqua Dragons the perfect pet. They are also kind of nostalgic as well. Remember being a kid and seeing the advertisements for Sea Monkeys? You always wanted them. You would buy the kit, then have to send in for your Sea Monkeys by mail, then wait. Not anymore. 



Aqua Dragons are great. They have a deluxe all in one kit. This kit includes: 
  • A color decorated kit
  • Eggs
  • Food
  • A Feeding Spoon
  • A Aireator
  • Magnifier
  • Instructions
  • Activity Book
The steps are quite simple:
  1. Fill your tank with bottled water. (I let my water sit in the tank a few days to make sure it was at room temperature.)
  2. You then add your eggs, and wait for about 2 days to let them hatch. ( I would make sure to let the water stay somewhere where it will not be cold)
  3. Every four to five days, you need to feed your pets. (That's not bad at all! Way better then Fido or Fluffy) 
  4. You also need to make sure that you are using your aireator to oxygenate you tank one time daily
    . (Be careful not to suck up any of your pets in the aireator). 
Four steps. And so easy. This will not only teach your little ones about how to care for pets, but it will teach them about what lives in the sea! 
These little things are great at procreating. You can teach your kids alot of amazing things by getting these great little pets! And they should last for a very long time. 


For any questions, or to order your very own aqua dragon kit, please click here.

Kickee Pants


I love finding the latest and greatest everything for my baby. As does any other parent. So when I heard about Kickee Pants I knew I just had to give them a try. 

Kickee Pants is a family run site. This is a bit more about such a wonderful company: 

KicKee Pants is a family run, family oriented company. We create all our fabrications and styles based on the idea that children should feel unrestricted by their clothing, even when they are dressed up, and that apparel for little ones should celebrate the innocence of childhood! Our own children regularly inspire our designs and you will see them participating throughout the site as they are our most willing models! 
Although we are growing quickly, and are thankful for this, we believe that the fundamental, family based vision for our company allows us to grow while still maintaining a direct connection to our customers and to our core values. We take a very hands on approach in our business, participating in everything from photo shoots to handling our manufacturing process. 
We believe in the importance of pursuing one's passion and strive to treat those we encounter in the world with respect and kindness. We believe in our brand, our employees, our customers, and our family and hope you will find this reflected in the KicKee Pants line. 
Erin, Nick and family
I was given the chance to review this cute little romper for my son. I have had no experience with clothing made from Bamboo, so I didn't know what to really expect. 

This is so soft. I washed it and put it on my little man immediately. He loves it! He was all smiles. I started to research Bamboo clothing a little more to see what all the rave was about. Bamboo clothing is great for all seasons. It helps you stay warm in the winter, yet it helps you stay cool in the summer. It is so versatile. It is great for people with allergies and sensitive skin. Bamboo also offers UV protection. I never knew such wonderful things about bamboo! 

I would recommend this product to anyone. With how soft and comfortable it is. It is also great for the enviroment. At Kickee Pants you can also get clothing for older children of either gender. And Womens clothing. Gifts too!

Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature





When it comes to bottles, I swear I am one of the pickiest people. So, when I was given the chance to review Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Bottles I will admit, I was a little nervous that I was going to be cleaning up yet another leaky bottle mess. 


I was SO wrong! These bottles are so amazing. I nurse my son, but I have to supplement with formula because he just loves to eat so much! So I put a Tommee Tippee bottle to the test. 

One of the things that I really appreciated with these bottles is that they have an extra wide nipple. This nipple is so much closer to the natural breast then any other that I have found yet. Which makes it much easier for me to transition my son from breast to bottle. 

I also love the patented air venting system. It has helped my son more so then anything else with his colic. Which as any parent that has had a colicky baby in the past, if you can find anything that helps you will use it! This air venting system lets the air completely bypass the milk by using a tube to have the air go through. 

I also love that there is a special brush to clean that part of the bottle. And it is so easy to pull apart and put back together. I just love knowing I can get every part of the bottle clean. And I am not worrying about my son getting some spoiled old formula. 

My husband loves that they are a wider bottle so it isn't hurting his hand to feed our son a bottle. While I love that there is a little grip to it for people like myself who have smaller hands. 

Now, onto my last, and I must say very favorite part about this bottle. IT DOESN'T LEAK! I am so sick of making my son (who mind you is usually pretty upset if he has to wait for a long time for a bottle) a bottle and then getting it to him and as he starts to eat the bottle, more of it ends up on him then in his tummy! This bottle doesn't have that issue at all! I have been using them for the past month to make sure I wouldn't have an issue, and I have yet to have one complaint.

Poo~Pourri

Poo~pourri was generous enough to allow me to review their product. And can I just say, this product is a definite nose saver! Poo~Pourri is a spray before you go product. Let me just say we really can put this to the test in my home. Living in such a small space still, and only having one bathroom gets to be a little rough with just my husband and I. 

I decided to put a bottle in the bathroom and see if he would just use it.. Nope.. not that easy... I swear some people like to let the world know about their digested food. So, I tried it myself. I heard absolutely no complaints. I also feel like this is great for when we have guests in our house. I know I have a lot of family and friends that would rather not have the world know what their bowel movements smell like. 


My ultimate favorite product from Poo~pourri though, has to be the Poo~Pourri Jr. Lil' Stinker. My son's bowel movements are awful smelling. Like clear the room with people leaving gagging bad. Now, don't think I am just over reacting. I worked in Health care for quite a few years, my nose can tolerate some pretty stenchy smells, but my little man he can make even me gag! With this product, it isn't so bad to throw his little stinks in the trash. It is simply just a spray or two when I have changed his diaper before throwing it in the trash. And there is no more stench, just a marvelous smell of lemon! 




All of the different Poo~Pourri products have amazing names, quite funny actually. They also have different scents. The original Poo~Pourri has the same scent as the Poo~Pourri Jr. A nice refreshing lemon scent. 




Royal Flush is more geared towards men. A scent of Eucalyptus leaves the restroom smelling more manly. 


 Loo-Pourri smells wonderful! It has a very fresh grapefruit scent. 

I was also able to try out the OMG Down & Dirty waterless hands cleanser. This is also a all natural product. I think my favorite part was that it didn't leave my hands feeling sticky after I was done using it. 

The great thing about these products are that a 2 ounce bottle can last you over ONE HUNDRED uses. I think that is great! Also, they are very easy to just throw into your purse for all of your on the go needs! You can find all of these great products talked about here and more here.

Kid Basix Safe Sippy 2


Kid Basix has a wonderful sippy cup to designed to grow with your little one. The Safe Sippy 2 is a great sippy cup to start your baby on when you feel comfortable starting sippys. It is great! There is no leaks, which any mom out there knows that finding a sippy cup that doesn't leak is such a challenge.

This safe sippy 2 is easy to clean seeing how it is made with stainless steel. It is BPA and phthalate free. Which is important to me. I don't like the thought of BPA being in anything that my son uses, and I work extra hard to make sure that there is nothing like that any where near my little man. 

This sippy cup holds eleven ounces. I know my little guy loves to drink, and refilling a cup every fifteen minutes can get really old, especially when you are trying to do something. 

Another great feature is the handles. They are completely removable! So as your child can start to handle holding a cup better, or no longer likes holding their cups with the handles. Problem solved! Take them away. 

This sippy cup also comes with the straw attachment to make it able to grow with your child. Which I feel like it is very important. I know for myself, I like to keep the same bottles, and cups for my son. So if there is some difference, he doesn't have to have an issue with drinking. 

Another great feature is a travel plug! I don't know how many times, I have packed up a bottle or sippy cup for my son, and thrown it in his diaper bag, got to where we were going, only to open the diaper bag and see all of his things soaking wet, with an empty cup. It is so annoying. I end up having to clean everything back out. And if he needs an extra set of clothes for what ever reason that day, it is out of the question. This travel plug has proven to work great! 

I will not be going anywhere without this sippy for my baby. I have not seen something so magnificent on the market to date.

Newmans Own Organics Review & Giveaway


Newman’s Own Organics is a company that sells a large variety of certified organic products. Newman’s Own Organics products are made with the best organic ingredients that have been grown on farms that use no pesticides or artificial fertilizers.  There products include Pretzles, Chocolate Bars, Fig Newmans, Cookies, Pop Corn, Vinegar, Coffee, Dried Fruit, Mints, Tea, Licorice and even Pet Food.

I recently was sent a box of a bunch of different NOO products to try out and let you know about. My husband and I were so excited. We didn't realize there are so many different goodies. When I thought of organic, I thought of fruits, and veggies. Nothing super exciting, but NOO really did surprise me! 

The first product I would like to tell you about that we just loved was the Newman’s Own Organics Cinnamon Hot Mints.


My husband and I would try to hide these mints from one another, because we both just loved them so much. This isn't a mint if you just want to pop one and be done. These are super addicting, I must warn you. We had the whole container gone in just a few short days. Another thing I love about all of the NOO mints, are the super cute little tins. Nothing out of the ordinary. 


The next product I would love to talk to you about is the great different flavors of licorice. 

I don't know what it is lately, but I have been on a serious licorice kick. That being said, I get sick of eating the same flavor all the time. NOO has seven different flavors of licorice twists. Not just the every day black and strawberry, though they have those as well. They also carry, Sour Cherry, Sour Apple, Sour Mango, and Sour Strawberry. Along with those came my absolute favorite out of all of the flavors. Pomegranate, and also the tangerine. These licorice twist are bursting with flavor! I can not remember a time in my life where I have had better licorice. Needless to say, those were gone pretty fast. Even though I only allowed my husband one piece of each. 




My husband was head over heels for their family recipe cookies. I did try a few myself, and I loved how they were great alone, but also great with coffee or milk. Not to sweet, and not to crunchy. Just perfect. 





Newmans Own Organics also has a great line of cream filled cookies. So much better then the leading brands. They did not leave my mouth feeling like I just got done chewing on a piece of wax. 


My overall opinion about Newmans Own Organics: All of the products I taste tested, I loved! I am always looking for foods that are better for you. And I have found them. This company is wonderful, and has had many years of experience, and I hope many more to come!

24/7 Frenzy Maxi Dress and Giveaway!

I just love Maxi Dresses, and other great fashions. My issue is, after having a baby though I am at my pre pregnancy weight, my tummy hasn't gone down completely yet. And it can be very hard to find cute clothes that fit me well. I stumbled upon 24/7 Frenzy and started looking through their online catalog. I just loved the clothes. They offer a wide variety of dresses, rompers, tops, bottoms, intimate wear, and sleep wear along with other things. These are all reasonably priced items. 

I chose to review the maxi dress as pictured above. I couldn't wait to get it so I could try it on. It took under a week for the dress to come in the mail. I opened it up and immediately tried it on. This dress fit GREAT! There was not one spot that looked awkward on my body. I felt great in it and my husband even agreed. It was wonderful. I will definitely be going back to 24/7 Frenzy to get more clothing soon!

Wearever Diabetic Socks




Wearever is a wonderful company that supplies reusable incontinence under garments.  Which if any of you have had family with a need for adult briefs, you know as well as I do that it can get VERY expensive. For women Wearever has 11 different items for incontinence underpants, including a cover for when you are going swimming. All priced very nicely in between 13.00 up to 85.00. 

For men there are five different options of reusable underpants for incontinence. Also including the swim cover. Priced 16.00 up to 120.00. These underpants for both men and women are able to last between 200 and 250 washes. That is a lot of disposable underpants not going into our dumps and into our environment with these wonderful products being around. Also,  your loved ones no longer have to feel any embarrassment knowing that if they move the right way with the old briefs they would make noises of being in a "diaper". Clothes will fit better, and your loved ones will feel better knowing that they don't have to feel so helpless. 


I was given the chance to review a couple pairs of Buster Browns Diabetic socks. I know that normally these socks aimed for diabetics are very expensive, but do not last long at all. So I was very curious about how well these Buster Brown socks would hold up. Seeing how they seem to be a much more reasonable price then the competitors I was a bit skeptical. You can get these socks from Wearever between 9.00 and 16.00. Three pairs come to each pack I received. They are a very soft cotton sock. Nothing super bulky. They are very comfortable. 

You can find all these great products and more at Wearever

CreaClip



I was introduced to the CreaClip for hair cutting. I love getting my hair cut. I hate paying the ridiculous prices at salons to get my hair done. Especially when I just need a trim. I thought this product was great. I got it soon after I ordered it. Though I had just had a haircut recently, I decided to try it out for a trim. I have attempted to cut my hair before without any kind of product and it was a MAJOR fail. With CreaClip it is very fail safe. There are many videos on you tube as well as very easy step by step directions that come with the product. 
These wonderful tools come in two sizes. One for bangs, and one for the rest of your hair. You can give yourself a haircut in just minutes. No more waiting in lines, or paying high dollar just to get that trim you need before a big date with your loved ones. With CreaClip you can save you and your family A LOT of money. 

Bangls Bracelets

I love jewelry... but not for long before I get bored with it. So, looking online I found Bangls. These are great! You can change out and make new bracelets every day according to your outfits.  I received two different bracelets to review. I started messing with them immediately. 

These are magnetic bracelets and come in four pieces. My big question was, were they actually going to stay together with everything I do in a day? So I put it to the test. 

My husband and I go out fishing ALOT. At least once a week, if not more. So I wore my bangls out on a fishing trip. With all the casting out I wasn't super confident that they would stay together. Sure enough, through all of our fishing, and packing and unpacking our car, and everything with the baby they stayed together the whole day.
