Dorfman Pacific


With the sun shining brightly it’s important to remember to protect ourselves from the harmful UV rays. One easy way to do that is a protective hat. Dorfman Pacific has some excellent protective hats that were even featured recently as Oprah’s favorite!

I had the opportunity to try out this one and I have to admit for a floppy style hat, the quality is absolutely there! The last floppy hat I bought on vacation held up for a few hours on the beach, which was very disappointing. This one is however proving to go well beyond expectations.

I have worn it out in the garden, while working on the pool, and to the park. It’s holding up good as new! Not only is it flat out adorable but the sun protection from the wide rim design is wonderful. I can’t wait to wear it out on the boat as well! 

I can go on and on about the quality of the DorfmanPacific Floppy style hat, but the company stands for itself after being in business over 90 years.

Snack Taxi

Snacks snacks snacks! That seems to be all I hear anymore, “mom can I have a snack”. But the use of those little plastic bags is getting horrible. That’s why I found Snack

Snack Taxi features a high quality design that is machine washable and durable for use after use. The easy flap design lets the kids have simple access to their favorite snacks, and finally I get to stop buying plastic sandwich bags!


Did you know each year the United States alone adds 20 million plastic baggies to landfills every day! Save the waste and check out Snack Taxi at the following sites:

A Kitchen Makeover with Giani Granite


Spring is in the air and with that comes spring cleaning, rearranging the house, and doing some remodeling.  When we bought our house three years ago, we knew it needed some major updates but updates means money and money doesn’t grow on trees.  So little by little we are getting there and this month’s project seems to be new kitchen counters.  Well like new…
Before

Our kitchen counters are in fair shape.  They were white, stained, and well just ugly and new granite countertops is just not something we can afford right now.  So I found Giani Granite which is a super easy and very affordable way to update any countertop. 

This was a process I was able to do all on my own, which just adds that much more excitement and joy into it because there aren’t very many “house updates” I can do without the help of hubby. First I prepped the counters by giving them a good cleaning with a scuff pad and taped off where I didn’t want the paint. 

Primer
The primer was super easy to apply.  I just rolled it on lightly as directed and then let dry. If you have any doubt, Giani Granite even sends you a How to DVD which I found very informative!

The next step was adding the colors.  At first I started to doubt myself, like I do with any project.  DON’T DO THIS!! IT WILL TURN OUT PERFECT! Hubby reassured me that granite itself is full of flaws so there was no way I could mess this up if I followed the directions.  Of course he was right, after I applied all three colors I really started to fall in love with the way it was turning out.

The top coat I thought was the trickiest, but like I said, I really doubted myself for no reason what so ever.  I think maybe I am a perfectionist and worry to much at times because these turned out way better than I could have ever hopped for. 

Can we pretend they are real granite? Of course!  They are beautiful and I absolutely love the way they turned out!  I am choosing to do one side of the kitchen at a time because you have to let them cure before you can put appliances back on them.  




After a few days, you can put light objects on them but it’s recommended that you wait 3 weeks before heavy appliances and our microwave is seriously heavy! I have about another week before I can move our appliances around and I can’t wait to finish the entire kitchen!  Don’t worry; I’ll be right back here with completed pictures as soon as I’m done.  Next step is the backsplash and the rest of the counters!


While you wait, be sure to check out Giani Granite at their following links.  For a fraction of the cost, you can update any countertop and the results are amazing!

Comfort is the key! Oofos Sandles

Easy was the key last week… Easy dinners (thanks grandma), easy getting the kids to
school (hubby did it so it was easy for me), and easy getting dressed and putting shoes on (thanks Oofos). As many of you know, I had surgery last week so now I am playing catch up. But I had the opportunity to really see how well some of these products worked for me, especially the Oofos sandals.  

There was no bending over and putting on shoes, it just was not an option at all. Luckily my Oofos sandals arrived and they were easy on and off! Although that really scored some brownie points for me last week, the true trait of these sandals is how amazingly comfortable they are! 

Oofos are developed out of a material called OOFoam which is an energy absorbing material. The cushioning and supportive design really helped me walk a little easier after surgery. The support alone helped provide a little extra balance control and ease to each step. These truly are an amazing sandal and I can’t wait to order another pair! 

Here is some quick information from the developers on their advanced technology;
-Absorbs shock to lessen pain
-Reduces fatigue & restores vigor
-Delivers unparalleled cushioning to recharge and rejuvenate your feet

Sprout Baby Foods

So apparently I am a little behind in the current baby food trends because when I handed the one year old a squeeze pouch of Sprout Baby Food, he knew just what to do! These little squeeze pouches are awesome for a snack in the park or on the road on those very busy days!  We take these pouches with us everywhere as a “just in case” snack.

Spout Organic Baby Foods are by far my favorite!  First I will tell you the all natural colors are very easy to clean up out of white carpet.  But then we should be asking hubby why in the world we still have white carpet with a 1 year old, right?

Lil Mans favorite Sprout Organic Baby Food pouch is the Butternut Squash, Maple & Oatmeal.   When we first got lil man, he had a lot of trouble chewing so these were great. Now in such a short time he is eating more and more solids including Sprouts Toddler Foods! 

As we were introducing lil man to the 4th stage foods, I was more comforted with the fact that Sprout meals provide valuable vitamins and minerals in each and every meal. Sprout Organic Baby Foods are perfect for the beginning eater and one that wants just a little independence.  I love Sprout for the organic ingredients and the assurance in knowing I am providing lil man all the right foods.

Sun Cups







After surgery Wednesday I am finally getting my apatite back little by little.  But the nausea was about to kill me in the process so I found a sweet snack to get me by.  Did you know sugar is a natural cure to nausea?  I didn’t either until I was directed by a pharmacist to drink a soda for the sugar.

For the first few days I really didn’t want to eat anything but I knew I needed to get something down to help gain back a little energy and keep me from vomiting violently from my medicine.  Sun Cups came to the rescue!  Their Gluten free and USDA Organic ingredients really provided a great “bite here & bite there” type of snack. 

My favorite was the Caramel Cups and of course I shared with hubby who enjoyed the Mint Cups.    Peanut butter isn’t for everyone though right? Guess what Sun Cups uses Sunflower Butter so not only are they gluten free but they are nut free as well!  Thank you Sun Cups for helping me get through a few very rough days!

Baby Magic Soft Cotton Blooms


Ahhh the sweet smell of baby shampoo sure does bring back memories from when the boys were little.  But a lot has changed over the years including different scents!  So with a new baby in the house I was thrilled to try something new including Baby Magic Soft Cotton Blooms. 

Baby Magic remains tear free and dye free plus hypoallergenic for that very special sensitive skin. But the Soft Cotton Blooms is a totally new scent for their Hair and Body Wash and Baby Lotion.  I love the Soft Cotton Blooms because it has a hint of sweet lily and jasmine plus its perfect for our wonderful little baby boy rather than the traditional baby lotion scent. 

Baby Magic still works just as great as I remember!  It lathers up really well and still rinses away easily making bath time less work and a lot more enjoyable.  I squirted a little in the tub before filling up for some extra bubbles and he loved it!!!  I’m so glad we have a baby who loves bath time!

Of course a bath wouldn’t be the same with out a little lotion! Little man loves spoil time where he gets lotion all over his hands, feet, back and belly.  And with Baby Magic, I know there is no harm in him putting his hands in his mouth afterwards because they strive on safety and quality baby products.

 The Baby Magic brand was always a favorite of mine when the boys were growing up and I am so grateful I have the opportunity to once again enjoy their products.

RW Garcia Premium Tortilla Chips


Well hubby has already started plowing the garden, picking out plants, and drawing up the plans for what he is going to plant where.  But that means he is already planning on his amazing salsa that he makes every year so it’s my job to find the perfect chips to go with it. 

Most of the time we end up buying two or three different kinds of chips because we can’t agree what taste best.  That’s not going to be the case this year because we just had the honor to try RW Garcia Premium Tortilla Chips. 

This 30 year old company is family owned and operated and has developed an organic and all natural corn-based snacks.  The dippers are great for the kids but I like the MixtBag of Red & Yellow Tortilla Chips.  The MixtBag’s will be perfect for salsa this summer and the color is sure to add a little flare to the table. 

The boys however really liked the Veggie Dipping Chips which are colorful and great for their little hands.  Of course mom couldn’t just hand over the bag, I had to give them a try as well and luckily I’m still not feeling the best because I think I would have sat there and ate the entire bag with them!

Needless to say RW Garcia is a hit in our house and I recommend you check them out at the following links:

BeeAlive Skin Care

Quality skin care products is important when you want to look your best but more so for a teenager just starting out.
  I received a wonderful package from BeeAlive, a Spa Essential company and after trying and loving the products, I passed them on to the 12 year old girl we currently have living with us.

It all started with the bag! The bag they came in is perfect for her morning trip upstairs to the bathroom before school It allows her to keep everything in one tidy spot plus keeps the clutter out of the bathrooms. (silently cheering for a clutter free bathroom!)

The instructions BeeAlive sends with their products were super easy to understand and actually rather comforting because they take the time to explain each product, what’s in it, and how to properly use it. This is great for her because I can set her free with it rather than feel like I am smothering her with instructions.  

One of the first products we tried is the Honey Masque which is a unique honey treatment that left my skin feeling soft and firm. Before I sent the bag of products off with her, I tried each one and this one I simply left on my face for about 15 minutes and then rinsed away. This was super easy for conditioning it provides.  

My favorite BeeAlive product was the Foaming Honey Cleanser which is gentle and worked great for a make-up remover. I also got to use the Royal Jelly serum and Enriching Royal Jelly Crème. These were both great products! The Royal Jelly Serum has a special secret though; you can keep it in the refrigerator to help tone and firm the tired under eye area. How neat is that?

BeeAlive products are great for anyone, but I am thrilled to death to pass this one down to the young adult living with us. The simple instructions will provide her a lifetime of great skin care. Check out BeeAlive at the following links.

BryBelly Wheel


I have the hardest time getting the kids to do chores lately, but instead of giving up all together I have come up with a new solution, make it a game of course! 

We received this prize wheel from BryBelly the kids have been facinated with it ever since.  wheel is filled with colorful sections and each one can be written on with a dry erase marker.  I simply wrote down a different chore on each color and left one open for a “Free Day”.  The boys love spinning it in hopes of getting the free day!  Of course the odds are against them but the chores are easy so they just keep on trying!  It’s so funny, but the end of the night my whole house is going to be cleaned!! I wonder when they’ll catch on?

The BryBelly wheel is a metal stand on a wooden base with a wooden wheel.  The bright colors get even the baby’s attention and it seems everyone enjoys just sitting there spinning it… Kind of weird right? Well momma’s gonna get her house cleaned!

Diamond Veneer

What’s a girls best friend? Diamonds of course! I remember when Miss Aly was born the very first words she heard was “Barbie” & “Diamonds” because of course as her aunt I have to be sure to teach her right! 

When I had the opportunity to work with Diamond Veneer I was overly excited especially when I learned I was going to get to review such a beautiful piece. Diamond Veneer sent me their oh so elegant 1.5CT Round Bail Pendant and the best part is it’s pink!

Hanging on a 16” tiffany style chain, this pendant shines and glistens and is absolutely beautiful! I absolutely have to recommend this for Mothers Day and all other holidays and celebrations for the woman in your life. After all, what girl doesn’t love diamonds?

Candy Galexy Rock Candy


What a treat for the kids on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.

Today they are snacking on some Candy Galexy Rock Candy, and I have to say with 4 kids in the house this is a big hit! 

This old fashion Pink Bubblegum Rock Candy were each indidvidually wrapped for freshness. The sticks were just the right
size for all the kids and the bright color had them excited before they even took the first bite!  

We received pink bubblegum and Light Blue Cotton Candy, wouldn’t these be a great addition to the delivery room to welcome a new baby? They are also the perfect treat for weddings, parties, and baby showers to make your sweet day that much sweeter.

GradSave


With all these new babies being born I found it rather important to discuss GradSave which is an online college registry.  College is getting rather expensive, I think I’ll be paying my loans for years and years but you can save your child the stress I am going through by this simple rewarding program.

You can set up a profile for your children, which is linked to over 500 different college savings plans.  After you set up the GradSave profile, you can then share it on your social media sites and through e-mails to all your friends and family who can then gift funds directly to their college fund.  Just think about over the years if each friend and family put a little bit into their college fund rather than buying junk toys that are trashed before the following year.   

For parties and important events you can put the GradSave logo on invitations.

For parties and important events you can put the GradSave logo on invitations. The GradSave gift cards are a perfect gift for baby showers, good grades, rewards, and birthdays of course!

 

 

Coffique


   I love my Keurig Coffee Maker, but all the little cups that go with it just seem to get in the way!  At first I put them in a drawer, but then I needed the drawer for bottle lids.  Lately I have been using a basket, but I am so tired of digging through not knowing which flavor I have left.

 
 So when I received this Coffique Coffee Pod Storage Stand, I was in love!  My Keurig fits right on top and I even had just enough room to put the cream and sugar up there to!  All my little k-cups fit so nicely inside the carousel.  It’s so easy to find my k-cups and knowing which ones I have left! Plus, they aren’t sitting in a bulky basket taking up more room on the counter. 


I give the Coffique an A+!  It holds 18 K-cups and keeps everything nice and organized. 

Coffique is sold at Target, Macy’s, Bonton, Kohls, JPC, Bed Bath and Beyond and other great stores near you! When you purchase a Coffique and send in the receipt, You will get a FREE Milk Frother!  $19..99 Value!

Backyard Safari Outfitters


Spring is finally here and summer is just around the corner so I am always trying to push the kids to go play outside, after all there is no reason to be cooped up in the house when it’s so nice out!  Well Backyard Safari Outfitters kept Mr. Maison busy for hours last night!!!

We received a Cargo Vest which holds all of his little “findings”, tools, and toys.  It has large pockets which are great for the Field Binocs.  I think Maison could have slept in this last night if I would have let him.  What a goof!  The Cargo Vest is well made; he’s not going to destroy it after playing with it just a few times even when he uses the D-Rings on it to hold other toys.  I love the quality of this vest!

The Field Binocs are pretty standard for a kiddo’s binoculars. But I was really surprised at how clear they were especially for a 5x30 zoom.  They are adjustable and waterproof which is good considering we have the pool in the back yard, or for those days they get left out in the rain.  Why can’t kids just bring everything in when they are done with it? Oh well, that’s ok because I know these wont get ruined by a little rain.  A+ there!

We also received a Lazer Light Bug Vacuum, how cool is that!  I don’t know how many bugs Maison was able to suck up, but it was pretty cool watching him try.  There is a light at the end of it to help you see the tiny ones and they go right into a Capture Core where the kids can sit there and watch them.  That was pretty interesting.

The last toy we received from Backyard Safari Outfitters is a Land and Water Habitat.  I couldn’t believe how well made this is!  It’s absolutely heavy duty and a beautiful habitat for the kids to watch their new finds.   I’m sure the kids will be looking for more critters to put in it tonight! Yuck!! Can I tell them to leave it outside? Ohhhhhh I better just stick with leaving it closed! The habitat provides a very natural and safe home for all the critters. YAY me….

Check out Backyard Safari Outfitters, you can find them at Wal-Mart, Target, Toys R Us, Barns and Noble and Amazon.com.   As much as I don’t like the bugs and slugs my kids do and they really had a blast with this one!

Mirenesse


I received this black box of goodies the other day and I couldn’t even consider putting it up before trying it!  What was it? My Mirenesse products to try!  Before even opening everything I had to try out the Bullet Proof nail Laquer!  My favorite out of the three they sent is Flapper Pash which the perfect color for spring!  Although I can’t remember where I read it, spring colors are supposed to be the color of candy and this fits perfectly!  Look at the shine and it really added some strength to my nails!  LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! 

After my nails dried, I began searching a little further into the box.  Wow there is some amazing goodies in here!

On my face I used the Magic touch Foundation and Invisible Fill make up.  The coverage isn’t as strong as I need but the B.B. Pore Powder makes up for it setting everything in nice and tight.  Both Magic Touch Foundation is long lasting and I love that I only need to apply it in the morning without any touch ups throughout the day.  Although the coverage isn’t completely full, it did a
great job hiding my imperfections and leaving a professional look.  Both of these as well come in a squeeze tube with a foam applicator so there was no need for additional sponges or messing up my pretty fingers. 


The Mirenesse Lip Bomb is AMAZING! In this picture I am wearing the Glossy Lacquer Stain and it does just that, stains your lips for a long lasting food proof color! 

The Inside Out 27 Hour Eye Kohls are beautiful and the longest lasting eye liner I have ever used!  Currently I have on the Amun and Cleo but the colors are fun to play with.  Saturday the kiddo’s had a soccer game so we were out in the wind for several hours, then at home working outside all day.  No smudging or wearing!  14 hours later my eyes still looked just as fresh as they did when I first applied the color!   Of course that was with the help of the Mirenesse Secret Weapon 24hr Mascara.  I love these products!  The Mascara is just as strong and reliable as everything else.  Even overnight, the mascara was still in place rather than all over my face.  How can you argue with that?

Check out Mirenesse products at the following links.  I know you will love them as much as I do! Also, let me know what you would like to see us try next!

Change it up with Firmoo

Every now then I like to just change it up. I used to cut or color my hair and that would
cure the need for wanting a different look but since I have been trying so very hard to grow my hair out I had to find alternatives for a new look. 

One of those alternatives was a new pair of glasses and I found the perfect source at Firmoo. It was actually an interesting experience browsing through their selection because I was able to upload a picture of myself and then virtually try on any pair I was interested in. There were so many different pairs to choose from I think I spent well over an hour trying them all on.  

When I finally decided on a pair, the check out process was amazing! Firmoo has it down perfectly to make sure that when you receive your glasses they fit. There was diagrams and pictures showing me how to measure my face to make sure I got it just right.  

Firmoo also has a “First Pair Free” program that everyone can jump in on! How great it is to change up your look or order a new pair of glasses for FREE! CLICK HERE

 I may look like a dork in my Firmoo Glasses but I think they’re fun plus they came with a nice hard case, bag, and the tools to tighten and loosen. These are a great set of glasses and they are very reasonably priced! Especially if your looking to “change it up”. Check them out and let me know how you change up your look.

SteamMachine


I’m not going to say that I “love” cleaning but I do love having a clean house and with all these kids in the house a good deep cleaning is a must.  So the real question is “How can I kill the germs before everyone gets sick?”

Using a steam cleaner will do the trick! Steam cleans more thoroughly than chemicals with the high temperatures and reaches into all the cracks and crevices that you would otherwise miss.  Steam cleaning is more cost effective using only water.  Plus steam cleaning is better for you killing 99% of germs and eliminating the harsh toxic chemicals and not leaving any of the chemical residue behind that actually attracts more dirt.  There are several different reasons to steam clean rather than using toxic chemicals but the choice is really up to you.  Keep buying cleaner after cleaner or use some tap water. 

I found a great SteamMachine this week from HomeRight.  I found the SteamMachine really easy to use with the different components and with so many different uses.  It really loosened up the deep dirt and lifted it right up.  Our laundry room still has vinyl flooring that is really hard to clean… This made the world of difference!  But my favorite use is cleaning all the toys.  With extra kids always in and out of the house germs come in faster than they do!  I was able to dig out the SteamMachine and in just a few minutes all the baby toys were disinfected and ready to go for another enjoyable round of fun!  I have used other steam cleaners before, but none of them even compare to how easy the SteamMachine is with all of its accessories.

Garnier B.B. Cream




I’ve heard and seen a lot lately about B.B. Cream and took the opportunity to try Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector Oil-Free B.B. Cream. The tinted SPF 20 cream controls shine, minimizes pores, evens skin tone and hydrates all at the same time. No wonder I have heard so many people ranting and raving about it!  

I love how natural it feels once I apply it and the dermatologist tested product is great for me because I have sensitive skin. But I will more than likely be sharing this one with the 12 year old because as she reaches her teenage years the cream is light enough to give her some coverage without gunky make up. This is a great product for anyone wanting a very natural look! Thanks Garnier!

Curtain & Bath Outlet


With extra kids in the house our electric bill has already gone up $100 and I’m terrified of how bad it’s going to get this summer.  That’s why I do everything I can to reduce cost and save energy.  We have so many DIY projects for you coming up but let’s start with something so simple and easy like a new set of curtains. 

On the search for a new set of curtains I came across Curtain & Bath Outlet Shop.  It’s amazing how big of a difference a good set of curtains make when re-decorating a room.  But more importantly blackout curtains will help when your trying to save some energy cost like us.  I found these Taunton Insulating BlackoutCurtains and I just love them! 

Not that I am rolling around on my curtains but they are really a soft polyester material and yet super sturdy and strong. Here is another product this week where the online picture doesn’t come close to doing the product justice.  The embossed swirl design is light and the curtains look 100% better than they do online.  The tight weaved material is working wonderfully to block out the sun which can really heat up our sitting room in the coming summer months.

One more thing, have you looked at the cost of curtains lately?  I have… because we have been trying to redo several rooms and the simple fact is, curtains are not cheap.  The Taunton Blackout Curtain Pair was to my surprise affordable and for the quality I recommend these all the way.

GlitzSee Purse Light


If you know me then you know I would lose my head if it
wasn’t attached. I lose everything from my cell phone, car keys to a pen when I just had it, and that’s daily to! So when I received an e-mail asking if I wanted to try GlitzSee Purse Light, of course I said yes!!!  

I love this little bling bling diamond light! I just turn the switch to on and throw it in my purse. When I’m on the hunt for my car keys, it’s motion activated sensor turns the light on and I can see all the way through my bottomless pit purse. The light stays on for 15 seconds which so far has been the perfect amount of time to find what I’m looking for. I got a purple one which luckily for me is my favorite color but they come in red, pink and green also.

Like I have said before, we are a very busy family so it’s just natural for us to always be on the go and the lack of a microwave in my back pocket makes for some cold bottles for the baby. Well I think I have that figured out, a friend of mine introduced me to Yoomi the self-warming baby bottle and the technology is pretty neat.  

With the touch of a button on the Yoomi bottle, the formula temperature warms in just 60 seconds. This is great for our busy lifestyle or the 3am feeding calls. The 8 ounce bottle is reusable to! You can recharge the warmer 100 times by charging it for 25 minutes before each use. Of course I have used the bottle without the warmer to! It easily pop’s right out for a quick bottle at home.  

I love how easy the Yoomi bottle is to use and the baby loves its short nubby design. He holds on to it perfectly and it’s overall a great bottle!

Ripe Nightfall Camo Watch


Jeramiah is getting old enough where it is time to take some responsibility into “this time I do this” or “it’s time to do that”.  So getting him a watch is the obvious answer, right?  On my hunt for a new watch for him, I came across Karma Kiss and found just the right one!

I really wanted something different, not a common watch another kid at school would have.  Karma Kiss has so many different unique gifts, I had no problem at all finding one for him.  I ordered the Ripe Nightfall CamoWatch and for a children’s watch, I was really surprised at how sturdy and well made it is.  The Watch was an excellent choice and a great gift for the little man.  The box it came in was ready to just hand over so he could unwrap it making it extra special for him to receive.  The batteries were already included making my mommy job that much easier.  Karma Kiss really excelled with this product above and beyond expectations, especially for a children’s watch, I’m really impressed.

Along with this super “manly” watch I found for Jeramiah, Karma Kiss has some really unique gifts and I can’t wait to do some more shopping on their site! The specially designed gifts and home décor are a perfect addition to our Mothers Day Gift guide, so therefor we are adding them to the list.
