Sugar and Spice - Product Review & Discount Code!

I was sent a Grippy Clippy - Ribbon art (in Abigail), a mini Grippy Clippy and a Sequin Bloom Headband. The clips are really strong and the foam used on the inside of the clip kept it in place and didn't break M's hair when I took them out. Which is great because I didn't get and "ouch Mama"'s....lol.

The headband is a stretch crochet in pink... with a large pink flower. Each petal is embellished with sequins and the inside of the flower has some beading (I thought it was a really nice touch).

The mini Grippy Clippy is pink with a flower (with beads for the inside of the flower). I found that "M" has a ton of hair...so actually holding her hair was hard with this clip... but it was great to put in her hair as an accent.

The regular sized Grippy Clippy was my fave! It is white with a ribbon art rose on it... SUPER pretty and it held all of crazy hair's bangs out of her face! I really...really liked how delicate this looked...but it could totally take a beating when "M" decided to rip it out of her hair.

Sugar and Spice Bows is proud  just opened a store front retail boutique located in Whitby! (Ladies... you know who you are.. I know you're out that way...go in a take a look!). They carry hats, tutus and accessories... even for the little men in the house.


Ok... who wants 20% off???? Enter code MOM into your online order and you'll save 20%!!! (which personally... I think it just means you can buy more! Quality is great...and the little added touches are what make them special!

Thank you Sugar and Spice for sending "M" out some products to try out and giving my readers a discount..right in time for Christmas!

i like book - Product Review and HUGE Discount Code!!

I got to try out a purple I Like Book! What it is...kind of a calendar-like note book that allows you to write in comments every day. There are spots for both Mom and Dad and the comments are directed towards your kids! For instance... I like the way "M" calls me "Mommy"... so that would be one to enter in beside today's date. These books were started by a couple that use to write little notes back and forth to each other until they started losing all their post-its... so they started a journal. Now that they have kids... they figured.. why not... it's a great keepsake and makes everyone feel warm and fuzzy inside.

I like that it makes you appreciate the little things in life that are most important.  I really like the little story and tidbit separators in the book. Really cute! We've decided that we are going to start our book on January 1st! Thought it would be nice to start off the new year...and also to have a full year in order. I love that you can add pictures in the book too! Such a great idea.

There are 2 different types of I like books. The one for Couples and the I like book for children (that comes in 4 different colours). They also sell bookmarks, clocks and wristbands. This book is a great idea! Love it! Everyone go by and check out their Facebook  page.... and tell all your friends!

Thank you to the I like book team  for sending me out one of their awesome books! I'm sure "M" will love hearing what we like about her (and I'm sure they'll be days when she's older that she'll need a pick-me-up and she can look back on everything!)

For information please visit http://www.theilikebook.com/ [to order please call toll free: 888.737.like (5453)] If you mention "babybottomline" they'll knock 40% off your order!!! (shipping isn't crazy either!)

Little Squeaky Feet - Product Review

 I was really excited when I received M's pair of Little Squeaky Feet! We received a white pair in their Daisy style... (Mary-Jane with velcro). Now that "M" is walking (and is all over the place) I wanted to make it more fun for her... and these did the trick! There is a "squeaker" in the heals of the shoes, so every time she walks she squeaks! She was having so much fun stomping her feet and running round... she loved hearing the sound! She even liked that that dog was trying to find where the squeaky sound was coming from.. it was driving her crazy....it was really cute.

The shoes are real leather...the sole is thick and match well with the shoes. I like the little daisy and leather flowers on the shoe. The stitching is thick and well done... they're awesome! They even have a little extra cushion and leather for their heel to stay in the shoe more comfortably. Even the insoles are well-made....cushy..and look like they would be super comfy and provide proper support for her growing feet.

Little Squeaky Feet have styles for both girls and boys... closed toe and sandals... and they come in a bunch of different colours.

Thank you Little Squeaky Feet for making "M" have fun while working on her walking skills! She LOVES these shoes!!

Positively Organic - Product Review, Coupon Code and Giveaway!!!

I was sent a Girls Long Sleeve Cross Top and a pair of Cuffup Pants. All I have to say is WOW! Positively Organic sells organic baby and toddler clothes that are absolutely beautiful! The colours are vibrant.. don't fade when washed...and the styles and designs are really modern.

The Girls Long Sleeve Cross Top is fitted... red (so pretty)... with black accents. "M" looked SO cute in this... I wanted to eat her up! It is made from organic cotton... and all the dyes and inks are eco-friendly and natural. I like the versatility of this shirt. You can stick it with a pair of jeans... a skirt... or pair of leggings and it will always make a statement! Quality wise.. .the stitching...prints and design is fantastic! I also liked that it wasn't too thick so it can be worn all year round :)

The Cuffup Pants are crazy! I love the pattern with the the red contrasting cuff at the bottom. ( "M" was a little short for the pants.. I had to do a roll at the top... but that's totally nothing new... she's only like 30 inches tall!). The pants are made with the same soft interlock organic cotton, dyes and inks as the top... are super stretchy and the pattern is great! "M" can wear these with just about anything...and when she grows I can put down the cuff to add some length and a bit of flair to the pant.

Positively Organic has 3 lines... B*babies, happy Wear and EarthLine. They have so much super cute stuff that are totally earth friendly... even down to the snaps that are nickle-free...and packaging! They support causes like Children's Health and Welfare and Economic Justice (to name a few)... this is huge... I love companies that give back and care about issues not only our children..but our children's children will hopefully not have to face. It's very admirable.

Huge thanks to Nancy...founder of Positively Organic for sending me out an awesome outfit and for doing a coupon code....and.... a HUGE giveaway!!! The coupon code is tbbl15.... and my readers will receive 15% off everything except clearance items :) - valid to December 31, 2010!

SCKC - Product Review & Giveaway!!!

I was in touch with SCKC and they were awesome enough to send me 2 full out fits... and "M" can totally pull off both...so they're perfect! I was sent a "Denim Jumper” Tunic...it is 100% cotton French Terry (which by far is the softest cotton I've seen!).... it has a screen of a denim dress on a white tunic. It's long sleeved... and goes perfect with a pair of leggings! "M" looked SO CUTE in this... it fit her great and I received a ton of compliments while she wore it. I liked that it is A-line so it has a bit of a flair to it and "M" wasn't hot in it even with the turtle-neck aspect to it (which is great...because she can't wear anything too thick..)

The Asymmetric Striped Hoodie I LOVED! It's blue... but has purple, blue, black and white stripes...with a band of hound's tooth on the bottom and in the hood. I liked that the hood didn't have any strings... it fit well and there wasn't a tag...it was printed in the inside of the shirt. This was really soft and had a stretch to it. My FAVE part of this is the kangaroo pocket... "M" loved that she could put her hands (and other things) in there... I liked that they paid attention to detail and made the openings a little larger to sneak a peek of the lighter blue colour that they used for the inside of the pocket.

The Classic Cuffed Legging ( which had white, purple and black stripes) were nice and stretchy..the elastic waistband was even wrapped in the same material to finish off the piece and also to keep the band soft around tender tummies! They have a thick cuff at the ankle to not only add to the style but I found it helped keep M's pants straighter when trying to get her into her boots! Plus... she was obviously comfortable in them... she was playing all day and didn't grab the waistband (she does that when she wears jeans sometimes... I can tell it's time to loosen her buttons...lol). These pants have the same screen printed tag... which is a fave in this house!
The Vintage Washed Sweat pant (in Army green) is a pant , with super soft cuffs and a thicker more heavy duty waist band with drawstring. These are perfect for hanging out at the ball park or snuggling up with a movie and a hot chocolate....totally versatile! Again.."M" loved the pockets... these were a bit too long for her... but I can't wait for her to fit in these... she looked like she was ready to just relax and hang out...lol.

All the products are machine washable...they have sizes 0-3months to 9/10... a crazy selection of awesome, hip stuff... and pricing is totally sweet... I think I'd actually pay more just for the quality... but don't tell them that ;) LOL!

Huge thanks to the SCKC team for sending me out some awesome stuff! We had fun playing dress-up and I think some of her new faves are yours!

Ranita's Fine Round Cut Aqua Blue CZ Necklace (Tomoson) - Product Review

I received a Ranita's Fine Round Cut Aqua Blue CZ Necklace from Fantasy Jewelry Box. It is sterling silver, rhodium electroplated.. has small cubic zirconias and a huge aqua one in the middle. All the stones are round and really shiny!! The pendant came with a link necklace that is adjustable too :)

I can totally see myself wearing this when I need to dress up an outfit, totally not for every day wear even though the quality is good..no stones were loose and I pulled at the chain... and it didn't budge.

You need to go check out their website... I spent FOREVER looking on there and checking everything out. Some of my faves are....the celebrity inspired jewelery and the cubic zirconia bracelets.... plus don't forget to check out their sale items and my fave ring!

They have so much to look at... prices are reasonable and everything is really pretty! I had a great time trying to find stuff for my Christmas list!!

Thanks to Fantasy Jewelry Box and Tomoson for letting me do the review!

Real Kids Shades - Product Review & Giveaway!!!

Real Kids Shades sent me a TON of sunglasses for "M" to try out! We received a pair of My First Shades (0-24 months) in Pink Daisy and a pair in Blue Flame (2-5 years). We also received a pair of Flex in purple (3-7 years), Racer in pink (Totally hot ones! in 5-8 years), a pair of Glide in blue (5-8 years), and Extreme Element in Silver Flame (great for playing in the snow..in size 3-7 years) and an Extreme Sport in Black Red (3-7 years). HOLY MOLY!!! They sent a huge variety of their line-up! "M" is starting to become a little diva...and it's actually really funny... she loves accessories and jewellery...just like her Mom ;)

The My First Shades come with a adjustable band and all the lenses are UV 400 category 3 lenses.  The frames on the Flex are rubber...there's no way your little one can break these! The Racer has metallic frames and are SUPER COOL! They look like my sunglasses...so "M" likes sporting these! The Glide has a sporty look with metallic frames. The Element is foamed back... which make them super comfy for long term wear. The Xtreme Sport  is foam backed and have the option of 3-7 polycarbonate lenses or 7-12 polarized lenses.

When thinking of sunglasses... most people think that they're a summer "accessory". Hello... wake up parents... they aren't just a cute little "add-on" for your children... they are protective gear for their eyes... to keep them safe from UV...and these.. have 100% UV protection! They're like sunscreen for your eyes! Would you go to the beach without wearing sunscreen? No... then grab a few pairs of these to keep your kids safe and looking cool all year round.

Real Kids Shades are Dr. recommended... have shatterproof frames and lenses and they can totally take a beating. There are styles..colours and options for everyone... even including their wrap around straps to hinder them from taking them off. "M" on the other hand loves them so much she wears a pair and even puts a pair in her hair (at the same time...lmao). She' so funny! I really like that these are FDA approved and that Real Kids Shades are endorsed by the Melanoma International Foundation. They also work with Prevent Blindness America to promote awareness of how to protect our children's eyes.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these sunglasses!! They come in a carrying case and strap. 100% these are going on THE LIST!! Thank you to Real Kids Shades for letting "M" be fashionable and keep her eyes protected!!!

So Rad - Product Review

I had the pleasure of working with Jasmine...the head-honcho over at So Rad for this review. We had a blast sending emails back and forth....she even tried to talk me into coming to the baby show... but I just couldn't make it this time... actually I was really disappointed that I couldn't make it this fall. Would have been great to meet up with everyone I've been talking to over the last few months and get to hang out with the Oh Baby! team too. Booo to busy weekends! LOL!

Anyway... back to the review... lol... from going back and forth with Jasmine (she's SUPER nice btw) and from hearing about how So Rad came to be... I actually had pretty high expectations for when I received the product. She sent me one of her new t-shirts in Sunburn Pink (Little bird)..pretty much hot off the press! (same as the pic I put in here but the t-shirt version, not the onesie)... I had to totally put the onesie pic in though...it was just too cute! So...the top left shoulder has a little bird... with "A little bird told me" in cursive writing underneath. I love the stitching details on the shirt... plus the printing is done really well and it washes great.

Over at So Rad there were a few the little chunkers.... and sizing was an issue... so they decided to solve their own problem and make a ton of larger sizes for those thick babies (which I wish "M" was... she's SOOO skinny!!).... no worries petite babies... there are sizes for everyone!

Everyone needs to totally check out their sets... omg... there is a heart and wing set that "M" would look killer in! Plus they're having a sale right now on their Bumbleshirts... 1/2 price! Stock up everyone... these bamboo/organic cotton shirts are to die for!

Thanks Jasmine for everything! "M" looks awesome in your t-shirt...and...I promise I'll meet up with you at the Spring show!

Skillet Bacon Jam (Tomoson) - Product Review

So.. I got to try out skillet bacon jam.... what is it you ask? It's a bacon spread... yes...you heard me correctly... BACON spread....lol. It is a combination on Niman ranch bacon, onions, balsamic and spices. You can use it on sandwiches... meat... or even use a bit with some oil and vinegar to make a salad dressing.

Not going to lie, this totally wasn't my cup of tea, I didn't even like the smell of it... my husband on the other hand was in awe of anything that involved with spreadable bacon...lmao. It kind of tastes like BBQ... but tangy... he liked it.

For me... I wouldn't say I'm a plain Jane type of girl... but I really don't use that many condiments on a regular basis...I think I can probably make a killer salad dressing by using a bit of this stuff...
just need a little practice to perfect the quantities of everything :)

Thanks to skillet bacon jam and Tomoson for letting me do the review! Totally a unique product!

Christmas Costume (Tomoson) - Product Review

I received a Christmas Elf costume in the infant/toddler size for review. OMG....it's hilarious! I can't wait to see every one's face when she wears it on Christmas...the hat is classic... it has bells... and elf ears attached to it... "M" looks SO CUTE in it!!! The costume it self is green and red with a black belt and gold buckle...white and red striped legs (with matching bow tie) and even extra red material to cover whatever shoes your little one is wearing. Sizing wise... it is quite big on her... which really.. just means... she'll be wearing this for the next few Christmas' LOL. It is a one piece costume that has a bit of velcro at the back to keep the collar closed. The bottom has elastic with velcro fasteners to help keep it from getting out of place, and it works great.

They have a TON of Christmas costumes... you have to go take a look... I couldn't decide which one to review... it's crazy! There's something for everyone... anything from Santa... to Mrs. Claus (in both naughty and nice...wink-wink...lol)... I almost died when I saw the Buddy the Elf costume.... all my friends know... ELF is my FAVE movie... yes... I laugh at the same parts EVERY TIME! LOL!!! They also have reindeer... snowmen... angels... the list goes on and on... and the pricing...fantastic!

While your checking out all the other costumes, make sure you stop by the toddler costumes and pick up something to have your little one dressed up for the holiday season! We're going to have a blast this year with her dressed up as an elf... I honestly can't wait!!!

BabyBond (Tomoson) - Product Review and Giveaway!

Sponsored by Tomoson.com
BabyBond sent me their Couture BabyBond in black (they were offering bloggers the original to review...but let me do the Couture...AND they said they'd be honoured for me to do a review for them *insert blush here*). What the BabyBond Couture is..... adjustable bellyband/nursing top combo that helps fit to Mom's changing body. Basically, it can be worn like a sash to cover yourself while nursing or around your waist to help with nursing when you're wearing a top that may make breast feeding a little tricky...lol.

It also has a self-storing pouch that is attached to one end of the wrap...and you literally roll it up into itself and can throw it in the diaper bag(nice touch by the way! Don't need to worry about misplacing a storage bag). It washed really well... because it's 100% Cotton...can be thrown in the machine and is made in the USA. The double panel gave maximum coverage (including your back and the baby belly)... which was great. The double layers separated to allow you to nurse

I LOVE that they have the instructions sewn in the product itself (so no booklet or CD to keep track off...especially when your children are a few years apart...man... I'm dreading the next one just for the fact that I can't remember where the instructions are for the bottle warmer is!!! LOL). Using the product was pretty easy... but rather than try to explain it... I'll give you the link to the instructional video... I watched it once and "got" it right away! CLICK HERE (I'll wait while you go take a look).

Back? Welcome! LOL.... see super easy eh? personally... I think the sash "way" would be my preference... I let a friend try it out (you better believe I want it back btw....you know who you are... and I have my eye one you...and know where you live...lol).... she loved it! Funny thing.... she liked the under the shirt method better... funny how everyone is different.

Thanks BabyBond for letting me (and my friend) try this out...and for sponsoring a giveaway!!

Live Brilliantly (Tomoson) - Product Review & Giveaway!

Sponsored by Tomoson.com
I relieved a 2 pack of Brilliant Lenses Cleaner and optical microfiber cloth. What it is...is an awesome eyeglass cleaner with SR-8 (which helps reduce water spots and scratches). I don't wear glasses anymore (Amen for Lasik!) so I used them on my sunglasses and my Blackberry screen... it worked great! I really liked that the protective layer didn't leave streaks or make my sunglasses feel greasy.
 
I really liked the micro-fiber cloth and carrying bag... I'm a freak for fingerprints on my Blackberry so it's the perfect size to throw in my purse for when little miss sticky fingers gets hold of it! LOL
Thanks to Live Brillantly and Tomoson for allowing me to do the review! No more fingerprints! Love it!

JUMBiES - Product Review and Giveaway!!!

I received 2 Jumbies... and they are hilarious! I got Blabbit (Bluebird/Rabbit) and Zelephant (Zebra/Elephant)...a couple of comic books and some coins that they call "sand dollars". The site is really interactive.... they have a bio of each of the characters... and I think it's a really cute touch! The have their likes and dislikes... profile....date of birth and a few other things. The story of the Jumbies is really cute... it's all about 2 storks crashing while they were delivering baby animals...and they ended up getting "jumbled". A little bit about M's new friends...Filbert the Blabbit can't keep a secret...make sure you be careful what you tell him because he can blow it way out of proportion! Zumbo the Zelephant is know for his wise ways.. the one everyone takes advice from. The comic book explains the story of how these little guys came to be and the sand dollars.. which are cute collectible coins!

"M" really thought these little guys were funny...and couldn't figure out what they were until I fully explained that they are 2 animals at the same time... once she "got" it she started making the sounds that each animals make! I like that these are similar to beanie babies....but have more spunk!

Thanks Jumbies for letting us have fun with Blabbit and Zelephant! We had so much fun!!

Bebek (Gagagougou) - Product Review and Giveaway!

I was honored when Iris from Gagagougou contacted me for another review! This time I got to try out 2 Bebek products! The SAFARI Insulated 3D Sports Flip Top Straw Sipper Cup and Feeding Bowl with Cutlery. During our first review "M" tried out a Bebek Sipper Cup... this time the straw one went off flawlessly! She LOVES IT! She's always liked using straws and it is a good succession from the first sippy we tried. She loves that it rattles and that the same cow that she's use to is on this cup to. It washes vary well both by hand or in the top rack of the dishwasher. It was the first time "M" has used a soft straw like this...and she didn't even notice the change which is awesome. I like that the straw is covered by the protector... especially because this is the new "go everywhere" cup! I find that these cups also keep her water/juice colder for a longer period of time (in comparison to some of her other cups).

The Bebek Feeding Bowl with Cutlery is awesome! I found it perfect for going out to restaurants... the cutlery is awesome, she didn't have trouble using them and everything fit well in her bag. The lid is awesome! It keeps a really good seal and I didn't have any accidents at all. The best part... both microwave and dishwasher safe! The plastic I found was really thick... and had some weight to it...and had an anti-skid bottom which I liked. Also, the set looks pretty cool...and I had a few people ask me where I got it from!

Huge thanks to Iris at Gagogougou! It was awesome to try out some of the new Bebek products you carry! Everyone go take a look at their website..they sell some pretty cool stuff!

Wisey - Product Review

I was excited when Wisey sent me a Chic Diaper Bag for me to review. This....is waaaay cooler than I thought it was going to be...lol. It doesn't look like a diaper bag at all...more like a purse.. and smaller than those over sized bags (which I'm officially getting sick of). It has enough room to throw a sippy cup...change of clothes, diapers, wipes, my wallet, cell...keys (it has a clip to attach them to)... and it even comes with a change pad. I like the style... it's accordion-like so it expands to fit alot... has a wrist strap that you can open up, adjust and clip it to the other side of the bag to make it a shoulder strap. This is perfect for trips out...and can even be thrown in your overnight bag if needed. It has shiny silver accents and closes with a grouping of elastic cords (looks super modern). They have this bag in both black and silver (I received the black)....and actually... can't wait to use it when we go out for dinner. It honestly doesn't look like it has diapers in it... I promise! LOL.  There are 4 purse length pockets inside as well as a zippered one (for your keys and wallet etc)...and 2 sections to put stuff on the back of the purse.

Wisey carries some pretty cool stuff... you need to go check them out...especially their "Time to Go" section... they have products to make life easier while you're out!

Thank you Wisey for sending me a Chic Diaper Bag to review!! I can't wait to bring it to all the parties during the holidays!!!

Letter Learning - Product Review

I was contacted by Ellen who is a new Entrepreneur...that started a line of educational greeting cards (she's also a Mom and a teacher too!). She sent me a mixed bag of her cards and also offered to do a giveaway for a "All Occasion Gift Pack" and "Advanced - All Occasion Gift Pack."

I received Fairy and Her Heart (BIRTHDAY), which allows children to trace over the messages on the outside and inside, leaves room to draw a picture and even has a spot for them to sign their name. (also the person they are giving it to).  The cards are all printed on heavy stock and come with colourful envelopes.
The Math - Preppy Poodle (BIRTHDAY) actually lets children practice their math skills by figuring out the answers between 4-9 and use the colour index to colour the picture on the front. It also lets them practice their writing skills on the inside the card.  The Cursive Word Search (BIRTHDAY) is for older children to practice their cursive writing and has a word search on the front of the card.  The Buddy Birthday - Advanced Writer (BLANK) has the lines to have children write in their own message (and the cow is super cute!).

I loved that the bundle of cards came in a plastic sleeve.....it made sure everything got here un-damaged and stayed clean. Plus it was great for storing the un-used ones. Ellen even wraps them in a pretty bow for you too!. The first thing I noticed was the quality...everything was thick and printed very well. I LOVE this idea, "M" isn't ready for these just yet, but I can hardly wait to start practicing with her!

Thanks so much Ellen for getting in contact with me to do this review and offering a giveaway!!! :)

Snugabug - Review and Giveaway!!!

I was given an awesome opportunity that I totally couldn't turn down! Snugabug...a portrait and art studio in Vaughan offered to do a session for me and "M" to get some pics done of the two of us... also a few of her... AND her Christmas ones! We were there forever...and the girls were AWESOME!! Little Miss Cranky Pants actually held it together for quite a while... I was kind of impressed... but she'd keep pointing at things or looking away....so they had to have a quick trigger finger to get the good ones (and they totally did!!).

The sessions are between 45-60 min and can have up to 3 different looks. They specialize in children, pregnancy and family shots (including fur babies)... and get great ones! There are a TON of packages and A La Carte pricing to choose from...so there's something for everyone! They even do albums and announcements if you're interested! Session fees are $49.95 and there is a minimum order of $150 (they are giving a $100 gift certificate away... so be sure to enter!)

We did 3 different changes for "M"... her first outfit was a frilly top, skinny jeans and her knee high boots (I also stuck a flower in her hair). We took some pics of her sitting on a white chair... with a brown background. They turned out awesome! The second outfit was her Christmas one and we did a white backdrop and used some of their Christmas props... LOVE THEM! The last look.. I stuck her in her Leafs Jersey with a black bow...and we got some really cute natural shots.

I had to have some feet pics taken... she's got the cutest little piggies!!! They turned out awesome... yes I put a watermark on the bottom...so don't steal the image please....lol. Didn't feel comfortable putting any recent pics of "M" on the site. So HUGE thanks to Snugabug for understanding.... they took awesome shots! I can't wait to have them printed...I went out and bought the frames for them already!

Thanks to Lisa and the girls at Snugabug for a wonderful experience..... and for offering one of my readers a $100 gift certificate! You guys were great! I'm sure I'll see you again soon!

Monkey Scentsy Buddy - Product Review

So a while ago I did a review for a Scentsy Warmer and some wax bars from Misty, a fantastic Director for Scentsy... well.. she mentioned to me that she had a surprise for "M"... when I opened the box... omg... your should have seen her face! I got the... "Mama.....here...HERE!" LOL!!! before I could even fully unwrap it! Misty was nice enough to send "M" a Mollie the Monkey Scentsy Buddy and a Perfectly Pomegranate Scent Pack. Mollie has a zippered pouch in her back... where you can put a Scent Pack. Here's the funniest part... both "M" and I are "smellers"... do you know what I mean?... literally.. we smell everything.... smell something before we eat it... etc.... was smelling it not the first thing she did??? LOL... and her reaction... classic.. "MMMMMM"... lol... man... she's hilarious! The Scent Pack is great... I like the Perfectly Pomegranate scent...but we knew that already from trying the bars out...hahaha. These packs can go anywhere... in your car... drawer... gym bag...where ever! And they last about a month!

I like that "M" can play with Mollie too... she was kind of dragging her around by one are like Linus and his blankey from the Peanuts cartoon...lol. She also calls it something... can't make it out just yet... but it's really cute. The Scent Pack if broken open only causes a bit of a mess... so don't worry about your little ones getting into it... the beads are food grade :)

Thanks so much Misty!!! "M" loves her Mollie Monkey! LOL

Kickboard - Product Review and Giveaway!

I was in contact with Kickboard....and they were nice enough to send "M" a Kids (mini) Kick...which is a #1 seller for them! What it is... a swiss -designed kickboard (scooter)...but it's 3 wheeled... making it safer and help to promote balance. The really cool thing... it has lean-to-steer technology...that helps them steer by shifting their body weight. It also has a break....which is an awesome feature for those times when they get really moving.

"M" was a bit too small for this... she's so short! LOL. A friend of mine has a 3 year old son that thought this was super cool! It didn't take him too long to get the hang of it... the board is low to the ground so he had no problem getting on and off... he was having such a blast while we were at the park. I really liked how light it was...and its... not awkward to stick in the stroller if needed. Age range for the mini is 3-5! I can't wait till "M" can really enjoy this... she was laughing and giggling watching how much fun her little buddy was having!

Have kids older than 5? No worries! There is a Maxi Kick which goes to age 10... and can really take a beating! Kid at heart? Hang on till Jan 11'.. and be prepared to be wowed by both the Urban and Extreme Kicks that are set to launch! They also carry balance bikes (G-bike).... aluminium... 20cm wheels with handbrake! So many really cool products... man I wish I was a kid again. Personally... I don't think I'm coordinated enough to pull off riding a scooter.... my hubby on the other hand... would probably be all over an Urban or Extreme kick!

These scooters are really sleek looking... come in orange, pink, green and blue... which is a great variety... plus they have a ton of different scooters for everyone! It was awesome to try the Mini out.... I'm looking forward to this summer when I can see "M" zip up and down the street! It's going to be so much fun!

HUGE thanks to the Kickboard team for doing the review AND doing a giveaway! You've been very generous!..... fans... time to win the coolest Christmas gift of the year!!!

Amber Teething Necklaces - Product Review


Amberforsale sent me 2 Amber Teething Necklaces! I received a dark cherry one and a multi-coloured one (which Emma surprised me with...I thought I was just getting the dark cherry one) I was sooo excited to get these...I've been looking for something that "M" can use for teething for those few last teeth come in....and to give her something stylish to hang onto besides me ;)

A little bit of background on these necklaces; they are a European tradition used as a remedy for teething....that is natural... non-toxic... and are made from real Baltic sea amber. There are many different styles and colours of beads, and they are all polished. (you need to take a look... they're all GORGEOUS.. you won't be able to decide on just one.. trust me!).

The necklaces have a knot in between each bead... so if it breaks... you won't have beads all over the floor to worry about. The best part is the closure! There is a plastic screw clasp..that is set in another piece of larger amber. The necklaces themselves have a little give in them... but can be broken if need be. The stones were all smooth...no jagged edges. I've always had a thing for amber... not exactly sure why... yes they're beautiful... and different...the colours are awesome... but... I've learned that they have a healing property to them too. Maybe that's why I like it so much....I find I'm always in a good mood when I wear my green amber pendant or ring.. maybe naturally it just makes me happy! :)

The necklaces themselves aren't for chewing on... they are to wear (short...to stay close to the body to warm up the necklace). When amber is heated they release a form of oil that the skin can absorb... this is what helps with the pain and what I like to call "rosey-cheek syndrome".... "M" is known for her flush cheeks when she's teething. These help with pain relief..too... I actually attached the two I was sent and wore it when she went to bed. I've had a nagging pain in my neck for a few days.... 2 hours of wearing the necklace... at some point the pain went away... didn't even realize.. and I didn't have to take any pain relievers (for the third day in a row)... it was actually a nice change. These have me totally sold!

100% without any hesitation...these are going on THE LIST! I totally wish I found these when "M" started her teething drama.... thank you thank you thank you Emma! I LOVE THEM!!! The quality is awesome... and I'll always try a natural homeopathic method before any over the counter drugs.

Savvycents - Product Review and Giveaway!!

Ok... so I'm really excited I got to try out this product! Frugal Mama's you'll LOVE THIS! The Savvycents wallet is a wallet that has an accordion style side (that even clips down), 2 window pockets....room for 6 cards (where I stuck all the point cards and stamp cards for places I go too)... money...cheque book and even change.

The accordion side had file cards and labels to organize everything just the way you like it... I stuck all my coupons in that side. I NEVER remember to use coupons... EVER... So I really like that I can stick this in the diaper bag and leave it there... or take it out.. throw my DL and Debit card in it...and head out shopping if I need too. The one I was sent was black patent leather! 
I've officially replaced my dollar store mini plastic accordion file folder with this... so pretty! HUGE thanks to Savvycents for sending me out this super sweet wallet to help me actually use those coupons! AND for hosting a giveaway!!!

Kidz Pre Step Toothpaste (Oh Baby!) - Product Review

Oh Baby! Sent me a tube of Kidz Pre Step Toothpaste to try out and review. It is an infant and children's toothpaste that has no sodium lauryl sulfate or fluoride (which makes it safe for the little ones who swallow it). It doesn't foam (which I thought was weird...but "M" didn't know the difference) and tastes like berries... which she also liked. I have been brushing her teeth ever since they started coming in...and now it's too the point where I let her brush them herself (after I do the good cleaning). My dentist even checks out her teeth when I have an appointment and he's actually really impressed with how well we clean her teeth. I actually have mild fluorosis, which is caused by having too my fluoride anywhere between the ages of 1 and 8 years old. We're actually not sure how I got it... but.. I'm trying to make sure that "M" doesn't. Basically... if I whiten my teeth... they go CRAZY white... literally... I mean like white-white... LOL. So I only use whitening from the dentist...and I only do it maybe 3 times a year...where other people could do it every day if they wanted to...and not get the results I do. There is a downside... after whitening my teeth get really blotchy until they calm down...because of how my enamel is... AND my teeth get really sensitive after whitening. So knowing that there is toothpaste like this... to help me clean her teeth and promote good dental hygiene...is awesome!

She wasn't bothered by the flavor at all... I think it was more the texture, just because she's only use to brushing with water on a regular basis. I did ask my aunt who is a dental hygienist too look over all the ingredients and packaging before I let "M" try it out. I've just heard a lot of mixed reviews on letting kids use toothpaste (mainly because of the fluoride)... so I wanted to check with her first. She read the packing... and said that it was safe for her to use.. just to use small amounts at a time. So I put a little on M's toothbrush and started to brush her teeth.... it was awesome! I even let her try doing it herself with her electric toothbrush. She had fun, liked the taste, and I was happy that it was helping keep her teeth clean! I tried finding a site for them... but it looks like there isn't one available... but there are sites like Well.ca that have it available online. I'm sure our big box stores carry it as well :)

So far so good! We're going to keep using the toothpaste...it seems to be working for us :)

Baby Hawk Carrier (Oh Baby!) - Product Review


Oh Baby! sent me a Baby Hawk Mei Tai carrier to try out. Wow... this thing was pretty cool... but it took a lot of practice to master. I got the front carrying position pretty quickly...but trying to get a squirming 18 month old onto my back and tying it was a 2 person job until I completely go the hang of it. I took the directions on how to tie the carrier right off their website.

Let me tell you how long I studied this and practiced before feeling confident enough in my tying skills! We practiced in the house a few times, and before you knew it I was walking to get the mail with her, with no problems. This carrier is EXTREMELY comfortable.... actually...probably the most comfortable one I've tried. I love the patterns that are available and that it's reversible! I got a brown one with a leafy pattern on it (which is totally me..lol...and a total fluke.. but an awesome coincidence)... the straps are really long... so I had no problem having enough material to follow the instructions... and it actually looked nice.

Baby Hawk also carries a version that snaps instead of ties... not sure if I'd like that one better or not... but I was pretty impressed with the Mei Tai!

SuperBaby: 12 Ways to Give Your Child a Head Start in the First 3 Years (Oh Baby!) - Product Review

Oh Baby! sent me the book "SuperBaby: 12 Ways to Give Your Child a Head Start in the First 3 Years" (By: Dr. Jenn Berman) to review. Being a first time Mom.. yes... I've read my fair share of books...so... yes.. I was skeptical that this book wouldn't be any different than anything else I've read before. A few things I noticed right off the bat... it is quite a long book... second... and this was through picking a few random sections to go through.. that this book... could be the next book to save Mom's of unnecessary stress and help new parents have a guideline to follow. I'm not saying a guideline as in "MUST" follow... but as in... an "AH-HA" moment for when you find some information that can help your daily life.

I found myself running through the table of contents to filter through and find some information/questions/ideas that I had top of mind... about"M". Sections of the book that I was drawn towards include Communication, Reading and Nutrition (among many others). Now... am I going to sit her and ramble on about all the great things that are in the book? No. Honestly, the book is full of great information, teach parents how to use communication...and have the ability to properly teach their children and set them up for success. There is a ton of useful information in this book! So... if you want to know the nitty-gritty.. you'll have to go pick up your own copy! (it's on sale at Amazon).

Overall..Did take tidbits of information and use it? Yes. Do I like the common sense aspect to it? Yes. Do I like the "ask the expert" areas? Yes. Will I continue to read the rest of the book? Yes. Enough said. LOL.

Tie Buddies (Tomoson) - Product Review & Giveaway!

Sponsored by Tomoson.com
I got to try out some Tie Buddies as part of a Tomoson review. Tie Buddies are these little plastic squares that have 2 holes to weave your child's shoelace through. What it does...when you add them to their shoelaces... it takes care of the "loop" issue that every child has when learning to tie their shoes.
These were really easy to put on M's shoes... no problem there... and she really liked the character on them. She's a bit young to start teaching her how to tie her shoes... but she's starting to pay more attention to when I do them with the Tie Buddies on.
The little tabs are great... I actually found it easier to tie her shoes with them on...just for the sheer fact that her shoes are SO SMALL! LOL! I like that there are 2 different pictures on a set of Tie Buddies... it makes it easier when teaching them which end is which and which one goes under the other. The do have a set of directions online... you can find them HERE.

This is such a simple idea but they make so much sense! I can't wait till "M" can use these... I'll keep practicing with her and hopefully she'll be able to tie her own shoes in no time!

Myachi (Tomoson) - Product Review and Giveaway!

Sponsored by Tomoson.com
You're probably thinking.... um... what's a Myachi? Do you remember Hacky Sacks? (the bean bag-like bag you kicked around with friends and did tricks)...well... a Myachi.. is similar... but more slender...comes with 2 grips for your fingers.... basically anything goes... except NO PALMS!

No gonna lie... I've seen some crazy tricks done with this type of product before...well hacky sack...not Myachi... and it was nuts! It's like a new extreme sport! There is a legend of Myachi City where warriors were taught martial arts... and used these to increase their hand/eye coordination. There are a couple of tricks in the insert that comes with the Myachi. #1... gotta catch it like an egg... little bit of give and flow go a long way! No palms! Increase the surface space of your hand by making sure you thumb is level with the rest of your hand. There are some examples of "moves" as well... man... I'm horrible... hubby doesn't have any coordination... but the kid down the street was pretty good when I showed him these. I got 2...so yes.. I gave one to him... lol. But I'm keeping the other one... I WILL be able to do this...lol....and maybe get some of my flexibility back.

These come in a TON of different colours! So there is something for everyone...even the little ladies!

Story Time For Me (Tomoson) - Product Review

I got to try out 2 sample stories from Story Time for Me. Basically what they are... are a website that has online books for children to watch and read along with. They are interactive books for toddlers and children just starting school. When I clicked the link I was given I went through the 2 sample stories... "Rob goes Missing" and "Fern Meets Some Indian Animals". Both stories were really cute... you had the option to turn the animation, sound and highlighted narrative phrase on or off. "M" liked the animation and sound on... she's a bit young for following along with the words...but other wise the books kept her attention for a while.

They have a bunch of different stories...for different ages, so I'm sure there is something for every child. They have different characters that have (Ben the Mouse, Fern the Fox, or Flame the Dragon)... and each character has their own series of online books. You can also have a story personalized with your child as part of the animation (which looked pretty cool).

Ok... who wants to try out these books for themselves??? Go to http://storytimeforme.com/2books and take a peek at the sample stories that "M" and I looked through. Let me know what you think :) You can also take a look at a YouTube video HERE to see if this is something that will work for your family!

Thanks too Story Time for Me and Tomoson for allowing me to do this review!

PetCakes - Product Review and Giveaway!!!

PetCakes was nice enough to send me their first puppies series...which are made by Well Made Toys. These plush animals look like little cupcakes! Each puppy has a hat that looks like the top of the cupcake (frosting and cherry included!) and come with a cupcake wrapper to sit in...so... cute! They are held in the wrapper with a few stitches, all you have to do is give those a quick snip and they come right out!

The 4 we received were - "Blueberry Buddy" who is a super cute Shar-pei..and totally one of M's faves! "Randy Candy" who is a mutt... and has the same colouring as our dog... so "M" kept calling it our dog's name...lol. "Twinkle Sprinkles" who is a beagle with pink frosting and wrapper...love the sprinkles on her frosting! and "Coco-Coconut" who is a poodle with crazy curly fur. "M" had a blast playing with these, they were the perfect size for her...and all of them we're really, really well made. No stings hanging... stitching is awesome and they totally passed the snuggle test!

PetCakes can be bought online at http://www.toysrus.com/ and http://www.etoys.com/ which makes it convenient... and would fit perfectly in your child's stocking!

Thank you to PetCakes for sending me out all 4 from the puppies line and doing a giveaway!... "M" loves playing with them!

MITT-ONS (ONS Gear) - Product Review

ONS Gear sent me a pair of MITT-ONS! What are they you ask? They are mittens with a sleeve that can go up to your child's elbow. This helps keep snow out...and also makes sure your little one can't get them off! The best part is that if you need to get to their hands, there is a zipper at the wrist so you can get in there without having to take the whole thing off.

I liked that the sleeve itself was fleece...so "M" wasn't bothered by it at all. I also really liked the adjustable strap because M's wrists and hands are really small..so that strap helped keep her hands stay in the right position. The other cool features that I could appreciate were the loop at the top of the sleeve which helps you pull it up...and the little clasps that clip the gloves together. Loved that! The palms have a grippy material on them...and there's even a soft thumb (for noses that like to run in the cold). They are waterproof and insulated with "Thinsulate"(which allows for all the insulation but not the thickness of it)....which made them comfortable for "M" to wear.

10% of ONS Gear's annual sales is donated to children's sports charities (which obviously... I think is awesome!). They also carry a wide variety of other products like Socks, Scarves, Hats, Onsies and even Slippers, so be sure to take a peek at their entire line!

Thank you ONS Gear! "M" will have a great winter playing in the snow...while staying warm thanks to you!!

Neatnik Saucer - Product Review & Giveaway!!!

Sponsored by Tomoson.com
Neatnik Saucer sent me one of their products....and its crazy cool!! I usually bring a high chair cover for "M" when we go out to dinner at a restaurant... but no more! This has a chair liner...and place mat in one! It keeps her food and toys off the ground (so I don't feel embarrassed when there is cheerios ALL over the floor) it's really cute and it packs up and fits in the diaper bag too! When unfolded...it's actually pretty big! I was really surprised... "M" thought it was funny to sit in it. She was kind of in awe of it... but she did get a little frustrated that when she tried to toss stuff off the side...it didn't hit the floor...so she reverted to throwing them at me...lol (baby steps right?....at least I know she'll have a wicked curve ball when she starts t-ball!).

Children anywhere from 6 months to 3 years....it's easy to clean (I just used a baby wipe)..has 2 velcro straps to add toys to it, holes for the seat belts from the high chair to fit through and I LOVED the pattern they sent me! They sent me the "Chicago" which is a black and white gingham pattern.... best part... the carrying case it comes with too! Which makes it totally convenient to carry.

The only thing that took me a while to get.... was trying to fold it up... and I'm sure I'll get better with practice... but it got down to the point where my husband was reading the directions to me while looking at the pics...lol. It only took about 4 or 5 tries the first time...but I got totally frustrated....LOL.

Overall...I liked how big of an area the Nearnik Saucer covered, how easy it is to clean, the pattern and the size of it when it's folded up.

Thanks to Neatnik for choosing my to do a review and giveaway!
