Smart Mom Jewelry’s Think Pink Line!

giftsetpink-pearl
I love Teething Bling by Smart Mom Jewelry!
Yes, I love it so much that I own eight necklaces, four bangles, and two key chains.  My daughter is now 12.5 months old and has been teething on my necklaces and bangles since she started getting teeth in. (my past review here)

Teething Bling Jewelry was founded in 2002 by smart moms Kendra and Amy. They recognized that infants put everything in their mouths and tend to grab at keys, necklaces and will gnaw on just about everything they’re not supposed to. They created a product that makes babies happy while moms look good. Teething Bling is available in pendants, bangles and keychains.

Today I want to shed some light on Smart Mom Jewelry’s “Think Pink” line. This October 2009, Smart Mom Jewelry is supporting breast cancer awareness month with a special online offer. They are donating 20% of every sale from this line to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Teething Bling products are safe for baby. All are made of non-toxic, phthalate, BPA, PVC and lead free and all pendants come with a breakaway clasp. In fact, it’s made from the same material as many teething toys.

Buy it: Teething Bling Pendants are $19 and Bangles are currently on sale for $9.50 at http://www.smartmomjewelry.com/

Natures Notebook Review

foralloflifes

Artist Courtney Noelle has captured a way to share her love for the ocean and beaches with those around her through her company ” Natures Notebook”. Courtney inscribes personal messages of all kinds from names to inspirational words in the sands of California’s beautiful beaches. frontPageGraphic

About the Company:

Nature’s Notebook was born of a spiritual connection to the ocean and its beaches. Drawn to the soft sandy edges of the sea, artist Courtney Noelle has always felt inclined to inscribe words or names, thoughts or dreams into the ever-changing landscape of the beach. Something about its tumultuous fate, an uncertainty that parallels our own lives, makes sea sand the perfect tablet for expression.

And what better way to capture that expression, the memory and the magic of the beach forever, than in a photograph.

Courtney Noelle began sharing these captured moments with friends and loved ones through gifts and cards. Soon, people were talking about these special snapshots, encouraging Courtney Noelle to make these gifts available to anyone. Touched, and eager to share this passion with the world, Courtney Noelle began Nature’s Notebook, an online collection of photographs and cards using the seas’ tranquility to express love and emotion.

These make wonderful wedding, anniversary, mothers, fathers, and graduations gifts. Know also that ten percent of the proceeds from buying the print Strength will benefit the Breast Cancer research foundation.

Story Time Fun Felts Review and Giveaway

can-do-toddler-felt

Recently, I was given an opportunity to review  the “Can Do Activity Book” from the company Fun Felt. I was sent this book assembled though you can purchase it pre-assembled.

I enjoyed flipping through this book last night with my 13 month old.  Throughout the eight boldly colored  pages you’ll find numerous activities to take part in.  The various scenes you’ll find in this book are;  a telephone, kitchen, farm, circus theme, toy room and a neighborhood. When we got to the kitchen page my daughter kept saying Mmmm and Yum-Yum. She also really enjoyed playing peekaboo with the baby chickens on one of the pages. She literally clapped every time the chicks came out from hiding!

This book is one of my new favorite mommy and daughter activities for the day. I can teach my daughter so many things from this book alone like lessons on getting dressed, numbers, and more! I can see myself as my daughter grows older telling her stories with the many felt objects that come with this book and I can also see my daughter telling me her own stories! This book opens world of imagination for both child and parent!

I must mention the fact that I love that this isn’t a noisy toy and that it promises to last for a good long time with it’s superb quality of felt. It’ll be great to pass this on to each of my children, and possibly even my own grandchildren one day.

Story Time Felts offers the finest in felt board stories and visual aids for learning and open ended play.  I recommend them 100% and I’ll let you know that in future, I’ll be purchasing some of the other great products that they offer. They have a very wide selection from dolls, stories, job charts, educational pieces, math games, nursery rhymes, and more! These are great for Sunday school, any public or home school classroom, libraries,  home use, and more…you name it!

Cover Your Hair Review

CoverYourHair.Com

familypicture

I'm wearing a headband with a tail.


When it comes to accessorizing, I’m immediately drawn to search for head ware first. Not only do they add that special pizzaz, they are a perfect solution to any bad hair day! I live in Oregon where it rains a lot and when it’s rainy my hair is often more full and this makes it sometimes hard to control. Headware is the perfect solution to complement and complete any outfit as well.

I was thrilled when through Facebook, I learned about Cover You Hair.com!  I checked out their site and then immediantly became a fan! You can find all sorts of accessories for your hair in variety of colors and styles! From Snoods, Bandannas, Hats, Berets, Hairbands, Headbands, Tichels, Hair scarf , headwraps, and more!

Their mission is to  provide low cost hair covering products to their consumers. Along the way, they’ve have blazed new trails in Jewish fashion. As a recognized industry leader,  they pride themselves in servicing each and every order as if it were their very first!

I was sent the All Around Wide Pre Tied Headband in hot pink, Paisley Wide Pre Tied Headband in light blue, and a very stylish purple head band with tail!

I had never worn a head band with a tail before, and I never knew what I was missing out on before! I found that it was very easy to tie with minimal effort. I love these because of the versatility, they come in many types of fabrics, prints, and legnths.

The pretied headbands are also very nice because, they stay securely in place and I found that they are much easier to wear than the traditional tie-up bandanas. These work great for short hair or long, hair up or hair down!  Overall, I love all of the headbands  I recieved from their site and plan on getting more!

You should check them out for yourself at: Cover You Hair.com

You can follow them on twitter @coveryourhair and also stay update to date with all their great giveaways and contest on their facebook page.

Nature’s Baby Organics Review

I’m concerned about the products that come in contact with my daughter’s skin. Though my daughter’s skin doesn’t seem to break out so often, I’m careful.  Can you blame me? I was horrified when I happened across the Cosmetic Safety Database. Many of the products that I’ve used have high scores which mean they aren’t very safe for my daughter’s skin.

I was able to review products by Natures Baby and being the mom that I am, I put the product names in the Cosmetic Safety Database and was quite satisfied with my findings. All of their products are on the low hazard section meaning they are very safe for children. 00mel3

Nature’s Baby Organics products are made with 70% to 95% Certified Organic Ingredients. They are Paraben, Phthalate, and Sulfate free. The products are clinically tested and pediatrician recommended. And they are formulated for use on everyone’s sensitive skin. Nature’s Baby Organics is a family owned company. And they donate a percentage of all sales to the Fight Against Breast Cancer.

I was able to review the Lavender Shampoo & Body Wash along with the  Tangy Tangerine Bubble Bath.  I was quite impressed with both products!

1301BB-TT-250pxWhen using the bubble bath, I was surprised by the results!  I’ve used bubble bath for myself in the past and I usually had to add a lot of the product for it to properly add many bubbles. This was not the case with Nature’s Baby Organic  Bubble Bath!  I had to use only a small amount and bubbles shampoo-lavfilled the tub! These bubbles are long lasting and left my daughter’s skin feeling and smelling great.  Melody had a blast playing in the bubbles and laughing at herself the mirror when seeing herself covered from head to toe in them. In my opinion, they are definitely worth the price of $12.99 per 12 oz. Bottle. Oh, you also have the option of purchasing this bubble bath  lavender.

The Natures Baby Organic Shampoo and Body Wash in Lavender, I was equally impressed with. This shampoo smelled great and the lavender wasn’t over powering like it is with some other products I own. I found this lathered very easily.  I love the fact that I don’t’ have to use very much of it to bathe my daughter from head to toe.  After bath time, the smell lingered on my daughter for quite some time. I also noticed in when using this, my daughter’s hair seemed to be more shiny.

I  highly recommend Nature’s Baby Organics to everybody.  They have lots of  wonderful products from shampoo to chest rub. Check them out at: http://www.naturesbabyproducts.com/index.html

black_B_cancerwhite_B_cancerI f you keep up with my blog you know I’ve written more than one review recommending Chic Buds to all music lovers out there. I can say nothing but good about the products and the generosity this company offers to those around them.

I’m here today to let you know (if you haven’t heard already) that chicBuds Earphones Supports Music Therapy while Donating to Breast Cancer Research. ChicBuds.com will be donating this product to those currently suffering from Breast Cancer… since studies show that listening to music helps reduce pain and relieve chemotherapy induced nausea and vomiting.

Each sell of the Breast Cancer Awareness limited edition design of chicBuds retractable earphones will be used in fighting back as 10% of all sales from this design will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation at the end of the year to help fund research for Breast Cancer.
