Loving Pets Review


As some of you know. I have two fur babies. Boozer and Eldorado. They are my heart. I have had Eldorado since she was eight weeks old. I got her after two tragic losses in my life. And even though she prefers men. She is still my little loving lady. She has always had my back. 

Boozer, I rescued roughly five years ago. He was three and came from a very abusive home. He is my first full blooded breed. He has trust issues with many people, but he loves my family. He also has seizures from the abuse he underwent while in his previous home. 

With these dogs being such a huge part of my life, I like to make sure that they are treated like the King and Queen they really are. That being said, I would like to start off by talking about their great selection on dog food bowls. 

My dogs are very possesive of their own food bowls. Though they are fine with sharing anything else. When it comes to their food they can get rather angry with the other one if they are trying to get in the others food. 


I chose the Milano Collection Bad to the Bone bowl for Boozer. Because he thinks he is pretty bad to the bone. This bowl is not only super cute. But is great because the stainless steel bowl is actually removable from the plastic outer bowl. Which makes it much easier to grab food from my basement for them, and makes it much easier to clean. Plus, it is dishwasher safe. The price is great as well. $7.49 for the small size. 

For Eldorado, I chose the Milano Collection Special Delivery bowl. More great things about these bowls you ask? These bowls come in three different sizes, so if you have a large breed dog, you don't have to worry about having an ugly plain bowl for your fur baby. Also, the bowls are skid free. Which is great, because my dogs tend to move their bowls around the whole kitchen while they are eating. 


Are your dogs messy eaters? Mine seem to be the worse! They both take a huge bite into their mouths, and move away from over their bowl to eat the bit. Boozer typically is the messiest eaters I have ever seen. Well, Loving Pets have the answer for that as well. The Bella Spill Proof Dog Mat. Along with the great design of this mat, a cute dog bone. It is great knowing the almost all of their mess lands on the mat. So cleaning up isn't an all the time thing in my house. I also love this because my son for some reason has an obsession with playing with the dog food. His mess (when he sneaks over by the dog food) lands on the mat. As well as it is easier to pick the dishes up off the floor if he is going to be playing in the kitchen for a while. Because it is just picking up the one mat. This is also available in two sizes. Starting at $10.99 it is priced to sell.


Are you looking for a great dog treats for your puppies? Loving Pets has a top selection on those as well. My dogs just loved the Grill-icious bite size treats. Though, my son did think that they were for him when I gave him two to give to both dogs. But after he learned they were for the dogs we were all set.

Elmers CheeWees Review


My son is a foodie. It is weird to say that for a one year old. But it is so true. He is always wanting a snack. So, when I received CheeWees to try out. I thought they would be great for him. He is the best food critic. Even at one. 

We started by trying CheeWees. These are not like your typical crunchy cheese curl. These are baked rather then fried. Which is great, when you are looking for a healthier alternative. These also come in multiple flavors. Not just "cheese snack" as most are labeled. 

 
The flavors include:
  • Bar-B-Que which have a wonderful flavor. This was a top flavor in my home. 
  • Green Onion which was my personal favorite. It has a nice taste of green onion while still having a cheese flavor to it. 
  • Hot N Spicy which I was nervous to try. I thought they would just taste "hot". But to my surprise, they still held a wonderful cheese flavor as well. 
  • Jalapeno was my husband's favorite. They still have the cheese flavor, but have a hint of jalapeno as well. 
  • Original which is a burst of cheese flavor! My son gobbled these up! 
But if you think that is all this company has to offer, you will be happy to know it is not! They also have:
  • Caramel Corn which is some of the best caramel corn I have ever ate in my life. I did hide this from my family. I am not afraid to admit it either. I am not much of a popcorn person. This was a great snack to watch a movie with. 
  • Cheese Popcorn This I got to just taste. My husband had this gone within fifteen minutes of opening the bag. He said he was the best cheese popcorn he has ever had. Full of flavor. 
  • Jumbo In Shell Peanuts are also available. And delicious. Great for people trying to eat a low carb snack.

True Citrus Review and Giveaway!


There is a local sub shop near me that I often frequent. One day I noticed they had these small packets called True Lemon. So I decided that day I would have some tea with a packet of this lemon in it. For those of you who know me, you know I absolutely love lemons. I used to eat them until my mouth was filled with sores. 


So, the first thing I want to talk about is true lemon. I know that having infused water is all the craze lately. I have tried it, and personally I am not a fan. I feel like it ends up tasting like fruit rinds, and that isn't for me. So I filled up my water bottle with ice water. Since it was a thirty two ounce water bottler I put two packets in. And it tasted like a way more delicious infused water. Not sweetened at all. My son actually loves True Lemon Water more then he loves any other drink! It is only really crystallized lemon! It is great.



The next product I would like to talk about is True Orange. It is a little bit sweeter then True Lemon. But that is naturally sweetened. So you don't have to worry about it tasting artificial. Though True Lemon was hands down my favorite. I didn't mind this one at all. It was great to be able to switch it up. And my son was all about this as well. Usually he gets juice, but with these. I feel a bit better about giving him something natural, and only sweetened naturally. I don't have to worry about additives and sugar. Because all it is, is crystallized orange. 






True Grapefruit is great for grapefruit lovers. I personally eat my grapefruit with sugar on it, but I did try this plan. It was still great. I will add sugar when drinking this in my water. 









True Lime is another great product. I love putting this in my drinks as well. The other great thing is adding these to more then just your waters. You can replace lime juice in your recipes, because they give you the guide on the back of the box to help. Or put them in mixed drinks whether then having the whole wedge. 





They also make many great drink packets for your water sweetened with splenda.

Including:
  • Raspberry Lemonade
  • Lemon Iced Tea
  • Black Cherry Limeade
  • Mango Orange
  • Peach Lemonade
  • Original Lemonade








True Lemon Pepper is great on any of your meats. I tried this on a roast one night, and it was literally all I needed. It tasted as if I had squeezed fresh lemon juice on it, because it was crystallized lemon and pepper. Pretty simple ingredients.  











True Lime, Garlic, and Cilantro I have found to be great on Chicken. As well as pasta. It has such a fresh flavor. It really makes me feel like I am eating at a restaurant, rather then in my dining room.

Little Green Review


I am constantly on the search for great products for my son. That I know are going to be safe and not filled with chemicals. My son is a definite water baby, and while he is in the bath he is constantly trying to drink the water. 

My search was over once I found Little Green I knew that I had found a great company with even greater products. I was lucky enough to be given a chance to test out their items with my son. Who has very sensitive skin. 

I would like to tell you a bit about some of their products that I just LOVE! 



First, I would like to talk about their Baby Shampoo and Body Wash. I loved that there wasn't a very strong scent for my son. This is a very mild formula. And what amazed me is that it didn't burn his eyes when he got it in there. He has had many problems with this in the past, and knowing I don't have to worry about this with this product it was very comforting. It is also great that you can use this on you little ones body and hair, so you aren't pulling out multiple bottles to have in your bath tub. This left my sons skin feeling very soft. Which I loved for our nightly cuddles. 

After bath time I decided to follow up with the Baby Nourishing Body Lotion. I was very happy with how well this actually rubbed into his skin. I have found a lot of other baby lotions leaving a greasy feeling on his and my skin when I use it. But this was great. I would use this on my own skin. It definitely helps keep moisture. And the smell was not over powering at all. I also love that they have convenient pump tops. So you are not constantly having to pick the bottle up.  

The Soothing Balm has been used many times in my home. This is great for dry and irritated skin. I used it when my son had spent a day out in the sun, and it seemed to really help his sun burns. Which was great. But it can be used for many different things. Including chapped lips. 
More great facts:
  • There are no parabens, no allergens, and no sulfates. 
  • Gluten Free
  • Formulated for Sensitive Skin
  • No Animal Testing
  • It's made right here in the USA
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Clinically and Dermatologist Tested
  • No animal testing




I also just love their gift sets. They would make a great baby shower gift for any new mom, or even a veteran.

EatSmart Precision Elite Thermocouple Food Thermometer Review and Giveaway



Being a stay at home mom, I do a lot of cooking, and baking. I have a thermometer for when I need it, but it was just a very plain jane standard thermometer. I could never get an accurate reading. 

So, when I was given the chance to test out the EatSmart Precision Elite Thermocouple Food Thermometer. I was super excited. I decided I would test this out on a weekend when my husband was home, and we were using the grill. 

We decided to cook up a few steaks. I am the type of person who really likes my meat over cooked almost. My husband on the other hand really likes his meat very rare. So we put it to the test. 


As we were cooking up our steaks, I brought the thermometer out so I could check it out. After the silly looks from my husband, because he didn't know I had received this item. We started checking the temperature to our meat. 

Of course his steak didn't take long. I thought it was great that we could just check the meat to make sure it got to the correct temperature of 135 degrees. 

As for my steak, I kept checking it to see how hot it was getting. This thermometer helped give me quick and accurate temperature. My steak was up to 160 degrees. 

This thermometer features:
  • Temperature readings in three seconds or less
  • 1.5mm folding probe
  • Anti Microbial Nylon Case for convenient storage
  • It's able to "freeze" the temperature making it more convenient to read
  • It can switch readings from Fahrenheit to Celsius
  • Illuminated Bright Blue Back lighting
  • A very broad range from -40 degrees to 572 degrees Fahrenheit

Vintage Italia Pasta Chips Review and Giveaway!


We are definitely a family that loves to snack. So when I was given the chance to review Pasta Chips I was pretty excited. One of my favorite foods of all time has to be spaghetti. My husband fettuccine. So we do eat alot of pasta in our family. 

I was amazed to find out that these are not a cracker, or even a potato chip. Pasta Chips are actual baked pasta dough. Nothing like what you are used to having to snack on. It is like you are tasting a little bit of Italy in every bite. Pasta Chips come in five different and delicious flavors.  



Sea Salt is a more lighter flavored Pasta Chip. Don't think that it isn't still super good. Because it has a great flavor. Not to over powering at all. My husband liked to use this flavor Pasta Chip as a dipping chip. 


The Marinara Pasta Chips were much better then I expected. It was almost like eating a spaghetti chip. These didn't even last a day in my house. Between my son, my husband and I, we gobbled this bag right up. No need for dips or anything. 



Garlic Olive Oil Pasta Chips were my favorite flavor. Though all of them were delicious. I LOVE garlic. And these were perfect. I tried to hide this bag from my husband so I didn't have to share, but he found my hiding spot. 



Spicy Tomato Herb was not my son's favorite, but my husband and I seemed to enjoy these as well. Again, no need for dipping. 


Also, not pictured, but still very delicious were the Alfredo Pasta Chips. These were definitely my husbands favorite. These were gone in under two hours. 

These pasta chips are great tasting, and an easy to take with you snack your whole family will love. Full of flavor, you don't have to worry about getting a dip for them.

Baby Banz Swimwear Review



My son is a water baby, anytime we are even close to any body of water he is running for it. It doesn't matter what it is, a lake, river, pool, mud puddle. He is all about it. When he goes into the bath tub he is always turning on the water. So, since we have bought a new home we decided a great summer activity for him would be swimming. But with swimming comes swimming suits. And I thought it was going to be really hard to find something for him to wear in the water that would be comfortable, cute, and work well for him. 

I came across Baby Banz and was so excited when they gave me the chance to try a suit for my little man. I was sent a UV Long sleeve Rash top, as well as a UV swim diaper. When I got them out of the package, I was first so excited that they looked so cute. And though it was a rainy day, I decided we needed to have a fashion show anyway. So I stripped my little guy down and dressed him in this outfit. I thought the top was going to be to big, but it fit just perfect, and the swim diaper was so adorable! It was a great matching set. 

The real test was in the pool though, would he like it? I know that I loved not having to put so much sun screen on him. It was great. And he didn't seem to mind at all being in the water with it. I also loved that it wasn't so loose that it was going to hurt him, but it wasn't so tight he couldn't move.

Mamma Chia Review

I am always looking for good on the go snacks that are packed with nutrition for my son. With him needing lots of protein and other essential nutrients it gets hard to find something I can just throw in my purse for when we are out and about. 

I was given the chance to try Mamma Chia  Chia Squeeze. I was very excited in how they are packaged. There is no worry about it popping open in my purse or diaper bag. Which is great, because I have had quite a few things blow up in there in the last 16 months. It also is resealable which is nice for when my son doesn't want to finish his snacks. 

I tried each of the six flavors which are: 
  1. Blackberry Bliss
  2. Wild Raspberry
  3. Mango Coconut
  4. Apple Cinnamon
  5. Strawberry Banana
  6. Green Magic
I can tell you there was not one flavor my son and I didn't enjoy. My favorite part is my son, who doesn't like to eat a lot of the time, gobbled them right up. He never threw them around. It was nice that he could just suck them right out of the package and I didn't have to worry about some huge mess in my back seat or around my house. He didn't want to share with the dogs, which has become his new normal. 

Now, don't get me wrong, these aren't just for little ones, they are for everyone. And that is great as well. I wish I would have known about these while I was working. They would have definitely been in my purse all the time. 


What is so great about Chia Squeeze you ask? Here, let me tell you:
  • It is a great on the go snack
  • There is no need to refrigerate
  • A good source of fiber
  • There is 70-80 calories per pouch
  • 1200 mg of Omega 3s
  • They are organic and non-gmo
  • gluten free and vegan friendly
  • A great blend of Chia fruits and veggies! 
I would highly recommend this product to anyone on the go, or not on the go. My son and I enjoyed them very much. I hope to be able to continue this with him. Especially for the times when he will not eat anything else!

John Paul Pets Review & Giveaway


For those of you who don't know, I am a proud mother of two fur babies. I have two dogs, who are both eight. I have Eldorado, who is a mixed breed of Blue Heeler and Welsh Corgi. I have had her since she was eight weeks old. I also rescued a pure bred Blue Heeler named Boozer five years ago. 

I am very big on taking care of my dogs the best I can. I don't like just using any product on them because I have noticed that it dries out their skin. My dogs have had issues with "hot spots" in the passed after going into certain lakes. 

So, after they got out of the lake the last time they went swimming, I wanted to get them into the bath to get any kind of parasites washed off them immediately. I decided it was the best time to try the John Paul Oatmeal Shampoo. After a little bit of a struggle with Eldorado (bath time is not her forte) I got her in the tub first. I must say, I started off over all impressed with the scent. It wasn't to overpowering. It was just a nice scent. I also think that the oatmeal helped soften her fur up quite a bit. She has a few patches of more wire hair. After all was said and done, I decided it was doggy spa day. I proceeded to bathe Boozer, but that little ham loves taking baths. He didn't even try to shake out all over me. 


My dogs don't typically have problems with gross stuff being stuck in their eyes due to their breed, but they do get nasty ears. Typically they don't appreciate when I am trying to clean out their ears. Whether I use liquid or what not in their ears, they both tend to run from me. So, I took out an Ear and Eye wipe. I first let Boozer sniff the wipe. I am pretty sure he thought it was a baby wipe. So he sat down, and I started working on his ears. These wipes take out a lot of grime without putting your pet through any stress at all. 


Last, I wanted to brush them out, so I decided to use the conditioning spray. After having a hard time spraying Eldorado, I ended up brushing a lot of loose hair out of her. Afterwords, she looked like she had lost a good ten pounds. Boozer and Eldorado both had a nice shine on their coats for the next week easy. They smelled great. 

I love that these products can be bought separately, or in a three pack special right on the website.

BigLather Bath Sponge Review


My husband and I are huge on having our own bath sponge. I have always been more of a body wash person because I hate when your soap gets all dingy. Then I don't end up using it. Putting the majority of the bar to waste. My husband on the other hand, prefers bar soap to body wash. So, when I found Big Lather, I knew we needed to test this out! 


Big Lather comes in two convenient types of big lather bath sponges. The darker green is easily compared to what your typical bath sponge would feel like. The light green how ever is the soft version. Which is more suitable for babies and children. 

There are quite a few great features about this product that I feel makes them much better then the leading bath sponges.  

  • You can use whatever brand of bar soap you would like, big lather is adjustable to make the bar of soap stay in the bath sponge. 
  • It is much cheaper to use bar soap rather then using body wash. It could save you over one hundred dollars a year. 
  • Leading bath sponges can start growing mold in eight days. Big Lather with proper use will inhibit mold growth. 
  • It is easier for people of all ages to use this product. Including the elderly and disabled. Which will help with more independence. 
  • Big Lather will last you twelve times longer then your leading bath sponge. 
  • You can wash it in the dishwasher to keep it clean between bars of soap.

Ale-8-One Review



I am sad to admit, I love ginger ale. I used to only drink it when I was sick. But as of lately especially, I have been on a real kick with it. I have tried quite a few different kinds. And most times, if I go against my childhood favorite, I am highly disappointed. 

When I was given the chance to review Ale-8-One, I am not going to lie. I was a bit skeptical on what I was actually getting. So, when I received three different kinds in the mail, I popped one of each into the fridge. 

The three different kinds of Ale-8-One:
  • Regular Ale-8-One
  • Diet Ale-8-One
  • Caffeine Free Ale-8-One
By the time my husband got home from work, they were cold and ready to go. So he has first pick, and his pick was Diet. I chose to go for the regular. This is the only ginger ale I know that has caffeine in it, which is great because I get very sluggish at the end of the day. 

I must start off by saying, I just loved the glass bottles. It makes your drinking of a ginger ale a whole different experience. I absolutely love this! My husband had first sip, and even though he isn't into ginger ale as much as I am. He said he really enjoyed the drink. It wasn't like most ginger ales he and I have had in the past. This isn't just something you drink when you have an upset stomach. I took a drink of mine, and I was so surprised it was so good. It wasn't to sweet, or to much like ginger. It was a great blend. 

I can't really tell you what the caffeine content is, but I know it did help me a bit through the next few hours. Which was nice.

Medu Jewelry Review and Giveaway Hosted by Missy Product Review

I recently got to review an onyx bracelet from Medu Jewelry and it had a sterling silver clasps.  It has 10mm round onyx with 7 inch long and hypoallergenic. I do not own a piece of onyx so this was nice to add to my jewelry collection. For someone who does not know much about this stone I would like to share with that it is Onyx is a member of the quartz family, and more specifically of the chalcedony group. This is a type of fibrous quartz that displays bands of color within a gemstone. Even more specifically, onyx is a variety of agate, which displays fibrous bands in white and black, sometimes with gray, although most often the stone is dyed so that it appears pure black. While black onyx is the most famous, there is also Sardonyx, which features slim red bands running through the black stone.
My Opinion: I like the piece as it is different then what I already own. The clasp is hard to open and when I put it on it fits just fine.
They offer a free jewelry program with each month you are a member you will get free jewelry where you just pay the shipping cost of $6.99 but the piece you get is worth $100-$200.

Besides what I got they have Malachite Bracelet, Rose Quarts necklace, Tungsten Ring with Polished Finish & Beveled Edge and more at http://www.medujewelry.com/
