Creative Clips™ by Colleen Review


100_8685Colleen Connon, mother of two from Cave Creek, Arizona, started Creative Clips after many trying attempts to find fun hair accessories for her  daughter’s fine hair. Colleen began making hair clips that she thought were unique and cute with a little bit of “bling” that were fun for all ages.

My daughter doesn’t have a whole lot of hair, so  I’ve had trouble  keeping cute little clips to stay put! That is until I was able to to review the Pink I Love Daddy and Crown on Light Pink.  What prevents them from falling out is a strip of Velcro!

I like the fact that  I can match my daughter’s outfits literally from head to toe with the vast selection of fun and stylish clips available!  Some of my personal favorites are the Cupcake on Turquoise, Light Blue Butterfly on Stripe, and the Red Heart on Polka Dot to name a few.

It’s nice to know that they have a Mini Display Stand for Clips! I don’t know about you but i know I’m going to need one of these to keep all my daughters cute clips together!

These clips are securely made though I would keep your baby supervised at all times. There are lots of little sequins that make look yummy to your little ones. If you are concerned about this you can try the non-sequined styles until your baby is a little older.

Scrubs Magazine

Have you heard about Scrubs magazine? Scrubs magazine is a great resource for all different kinds of nurses, whether you are becoming or already one.  This website is filled with many uplifting stories and more focused on lifestyle! This is great because most other magazines of this nature are focused more on the clinical aspect of nursing.

They have a fun section on their site called “The Scrubbies” where you can nominate a special nurse in your life. I would choose the nurse that took care of me when I was in the hospitable having my daughter last year on this day!  She was a wonderful nurse and kept me from getting stressed with her wonderful attitude and bubbling personality.

You can vote for your favorite fictional portrayal of a nurse at the featured polls! I chose Carol Hathaway from ER because I enjoy her character and commitment to her job. Plus, I grew up watching the tv show ER!

Nurses can get wonderful advice on various situations pertaining to work at the  Tip Jar. Each of the tips were written by seasoned nurses to give to the new ones on the floor.

Scrubs is not just another clinical nursing site…there are plenty of those! Scrubs is the one and only site that’s 100 percent about you — personally and professionally — and the very specific joys and challenges you face because of the noble career you chose. So, on this site and in the pages of our upcoming print magazine, you’ll not only find career advice and inspiring stories, but beauty and fashion tips as well as lots of ideas on making your downtime as relaxing as your work life is demanding.

Baby Bella Maya – Infant Carseat Cover Review

Have you seen the variety of car seat covers over at Baby Bella Maya? If you haven’t, you should really check them out! These car seat covers make a bold and fun statement wherever they are seen! Where else you can you find car seat covers in  Lollipop Leopard Pink, Zoe Zebra, and Limon Swirl?


Ocean Mist carseat Cover from Baby Belle Maya

I was sent the Ocean Mist car seat cover and fell in love with it right away.  This cover is simply adorable and soft being made from silky woven polyester blends.  As most delicate things, it’s recommended that you hand wash in cool water, lay flat to dry.

As a parent I know car seat covers get stained, dirty, and worn out over time. But, by simply placing a gorgeous car seat cover( like this one) over our old car seat cover, it can bring it back to life!

My favorite feature is how easy it is to remove and attach their car seat covers. It connects by snaps, so it’s extremely simple to take off and clean. Meaning, you don’t have to remove the straps repeatedly in order to keep car seat covers clean! Baby Bella Maya is the only company that offers this helpful feature.

My daughter likes her new car seat cover as much as me. She keeps pointing at it, going “oh”, and smiling. She also finds it very comfortable when going on outings, as you can see from her sleeping in the photo above.

I forgot to mention that these carseat covers are universal and should fit on any carseat. If you want your own, you can find them at:

West County Gardener Review


All year round, I enjoy working in flowerbeds and in my own personal garden, though after getting married, I’ve had to make due with apartment gardening. Currently I’m growing three tomato plants, a bell pepper, and an aloe  on my third story deck. My vegetables and aloe will soon be joined by several pots of flowers as long as I leave space for my husbands grill.

I have small hands so it’s been hard to wear gloves that fit while I’m gardening.  I love the feel of the earth just as much as anyone else but I don’t quite enjoy getting pricked by thistles or getting dirt under my fingernsm-glove-classic-apails. What to do? Those garden gloves from Wally World just weren’t cutting as they were way over sized and kept slipping off, filling my gloves with dirt, and getting me filthy!

I recently came across the company West County Gardener. They offer a variety of gloves for all sorts of tasks! Their many syles include; Classic Glove, Landscape Glove, Rose Glove, Waterproof Glove, Work Glove, and Kid’s Gloves.

About the Company:

Our Goal is to design and engineer the best fitting high performance gloves for you and your needs. We listen to our customers and continually make small ‘running changes’ based on user feedback. Which means, we make the best gloves you’ll ever wear. More than that, West County continues to invent and innovate to help make your time outdoors more enjoyable, productive and comfortable.

“I Can Fix This”, said Beverly Schor one day in early 2001 when she had a “light bulb” moment as she was out gardening and noticed the sorry state of her month-old conventional garden gloves. As a cyclist and sports apparel designer, she observed many of the qualities she loved in her sport gloves were missing in her garden gloves. Why couldn’t garden gloves have the features of sports gloves and last as long too?

Combining Her Skills And Experience as a gardener, sports apparel designer and national champion cyclist, she set out to create high-performance gloves for both avid and weekend gardeners. The result is a line of lightweight gloves that uses the best technical fabrics and design know-how that has traditionally been reserved for serious sports enthusiasts from cyclists to rock climbers.

West County Gardener was founded out of Beverly’s love for the outdoors and her extensive experience and knowledge in product design and development. Her skills and experience helped her produce not only state-of-the-art gloves, but also create a company whose mission is to provide the most innovative men’s and women’s garden and work gloves with the highest level of quality and customer service.

Based In San Francisco, designer and founder Beverly Schor is a Bay Area Active Sports apparel designer and cyclist—not always in that order! Before opening her own design studio, she worked for Esprit, The Gap, and The North Face. She brings a passion for sports and an extensive knowledge of technical fabrics and construction to every project.

When She’s Not In Her Studio, she’s out training on her bike where she has earned many State and National Championship medals in her age group. In June 2002, she set the National Time Trial Record in her age group. West County Gardener was founded out of her love for the outdoors and her extensive experience and knowledge in product design and development.

My Thoughts:

I was able to review a pair of Apricot Classic gloves for myself thanks to the generosity of this company. First and foremost, I love the color varieties that these gloves come in! Where else can you get garden gloves that come in fun fashionable colors of Apricot, Berry, Lime, and Slate? It should be pretty obvious by now that these gloves were created by a woman with an eye for style as well as function.

I found these gloves extremely comfortable and they fit me perfectly…never have I had a glove fit like a glove should. They specifically state in their bio that their women’s gloves are tailored specifically to fit a woman’s narrower hand and longer fingers. Having the right fit means no blisters and no extra bulk to get in the way! I can not count how many blisters I have gotten by doing yard work in my younger day! I could have used these back when I was a kid for sure. Now, I know what gloves to purchase for my kids…as my children will work along with me gardening and I want to keep their hands protected from thorns, thistles, and blisters!


* made with 100% synthetic materials
* machine washable and can tumble dry low
* Padded palms and reinforced finger pads provide all the protection of leather but last significantly longer
* Light weight, durable, flexible and abrasion resistant
* first recycled content gloves in the United States!
* can be used for more than just gardening, some other uses could be cross country skiing, snow shoeing, horse back riding, mountain biking, walking, jogging, yard chores and more…

You can purchase West County Gloves at their online store. What a wonderful gift these would make! I couldn’t help but mention that Father’s Day is coming up soon! Does your Dad have a green thumb like mine?
