Me4Kidz Diaper Bag Buddy Review

diaper-buddy-lg

My daughter’s diaper bag has a new buddy! How silly does that sound… okay yes, I admit just a wee bit silly.   Let me tell you about this wonderful  diaper bag buddy. In my opinion, this a must have for any parent, grandparent, or sitter. This kit created by Me4Kidz made solely in the USA is a perfect baby basics kit for those of us on the go.  I will let you know that before this kit lots of my daughters things got shifted around in my bag and sometimes never made it back into the bag (as I am constantly swapping from purse to diaper bag on a regular basis).  This kit is great if you are leaving your kid with a sitter or whomever and then your child may need a bath…the shampoo and body wash is there, say God forbid your child gets to much sun and gets a sunburn… you can pull out the diaper bag buddy and use the Natural Aloe Vera Gel Packs! If you are on a trip away from home and your child is coming down with a fever, you can pull out the one time use thermometer and check your child’s temperature!

This kit includes the following organic and natural products :

1- Organic Diaper Rash Cream
2- Natural Aloe Vera Gel Packs
1- Organic Face & Body Moisturizer
5- Latex Free Jr. Bandages
1- One Time Use Thermometer
1-Organic Shampoo & Body Wash
3- Natural Tush Wipes
1- Reusable 100% Recycled, Lead Free Carry Case

This kit really does have it covered  with tons of great products ! I love being prepared and with a premade kit like this it just makes being a parent that much easier because I know sometimes we all have one of those days!

Me4kidz, LLC is a family-owned & operated business.  Its core focus is designing functional and modern first-aid kits that prompt and inspire parents and caregivers world-wide to be prepared when it comes to every day childhood injuries. This family of four is driven by their faith in the Lord
and is completely committed to their business in all aspects.

Another wonderful side note is that Me4kidz has all of their products assembled by the disabled.  10% of each purchase gives back to the disabled community!

I wanted to let you know that Me4Kidz did
not just limit their products to babies but they have products for
older children as well as for your four legged friends… yes, you
heard me right they were even thinking about Rover’s well being of
which I think is great.

Piggy Paint Non-toxic Fingernail Polish Review

piggypaint

I recently received a sample of the Piggy Paint nail polish color Girl’s Rule along with nail polish remover in the mail last week and I am happy to say that it’s a keeper! As, my daughter is not quite old enough to try this nail polish out yet, I decided that I would. I think most mother’s would prefer to try something new out before they gave it or used on their children.  First and foremost, I love everything that this nail polish has going for it as it has no toxic ingredients,  it’s odorless, and has a water-based formula. Yes, I will admit as soon as I opened the polish, I smelled it and no odor at all! I used to paint my nails a lot growing up but the odor for me just got to be too much and would end up getting bad headaches from those toxic fumes.  This nail polish dries pretty quickly and  it has a hard and durable finish with vibrant color ( I only applied one coat too)! I will probably just be painting my nails too when I paint my little ones piggies and fingers when she’s old enough!

The nail polish remover is also kid-friendly. It doesn’t contain acetone, is odorless, and is biodegradable. It’s also made from natural ingredients. I also like that it has a child proof cap on it, little details like that make a huge difference when you have wee little ones around.

I think the best way to introduce this to other little girls and their mommies is when we have slumber parties, because we will have those! There’s a nice variety of nail polish as it comes in  13 different colors! I decided I may just have to splurge and get some of these for myself down the road.   I was horrified I admit when I read that the normal nail polish that the founder was using to paint her daughters nails ate straight through a foam plate. It makes me shudder to wonder what it was doing to our nails! These put my mind at ease and they should put yours at ease too.  I encourage every mother, grandma, aunt,sister, and daughter to try these out. You won’t be disappointed knowing for health reasons alone, these are a lot better for everyone.  Visit Piggy Paint today!

Spa Time Baby CozyCare Cape- Review and Giveaway

spababy022009

Melody and Mommy modeling our Spa Time Baby Cape in Fizzy Citrus

Today may have been the all time best bath time experience that I’ve had with my daughter since she was born!  I’m sure you are wondering why…don’t worry, I’m going to tell you!

My daughter and I have a pretty normal bath routine, water in the tub, a handful of bright colored toys,  add my daughter and voila fun in the tub. My daughter sometimes starts having a little too much fun and guess what happens to mom? Yes, that’s right my little one enjoys flailing about splashing everywhere and I get soaked.  I used to try to tuck a towel into my shirt to prevent getting soaked but it usually fell off and sometimes even into the tub! I had about given up trying and then I came across a Spa Time Baby Cozy Care Cape!

What does this so called cape do for me and my daughter? I’ll enlighten you on it’s wonders. This cape is a super newwhitejpg350x5081comfortable, functional and fashionable towel for the baby that comes with an exclusive waterproof panel for you to wear! Come now, let’s hear the Oooo’s and aaaah’s! Oh, you need more? Let me tell you how it works.  Basically, you slip the cape over your neck and it keeps you arms, and shoulders dry.  When bath time is nearing it’s end I gather my little one up into my arms without worrying if a towel is going to fall off of her or if she is going to get cold because the towel isn’t thick enough.  This towel is made of 100% cotton terry cloth making it soft and absorbent, my daughter was dry within seconds of me patting her off (me wearing it and warming it up did wonders too, I’m sure)! I really do love this product and I will admit I thought it was kind of silly at first and that the price was maybe too much but after trying this product out for myself, I couldn’t be more wrong. Forget those hooded towels, buy this and you’ll be 100% satisfied, hands down!

Have I won you over with my review or shall I slap on some more southern charm? Since I love my readers and Spa Baby loves you too, we are going to give you a chance to win your very own CozyCare Cape of which retails for $38.95 (add $10 for monogramming) at www.spatimebaby.com.

Inspired With Love – Handmade Paper Decor Candle Holders

butterflycandle
I recently won a gorgeous handmade paper decor candle holder at a contest that Saving with Style was holding. I must say that I am very pleased with winning because this is now my all time favorite votive! All of her votive are decorated with paper from Japan, Thailand and India! Depending on the paper used, the lighting varies. For example, when light paper is used, the glow is brighter. Want a more subtle, romantic look? Order a darker holder. She has some really cute ones! You can find one for maybe the granddaughter, daughter, or sister in your life! I personally think the little bird one and the princess glows are adorable! I love how they look like paper lanterns but are actually glass!

I still can’t get over the fact how inexpensive these are either! See for yourself over at her shop Inspired With Love.

Skin MD Shielding Lotion Review

skinmdlogo

Do you have dry skin? Well, I’ve got the perfect product for you! I recently received the opportunity to try out Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion and I must say I’m very pleased with the results. My skin is naturally oily, so I don’t’ usually have a lot of problems with my skin becoming dry but as of lately, the cold harsh Oregon weather had been taking a toll on my face and hands! This lotion re-hydrated my skin, within just one use and my skin felt renewed, fresh, smooth, and so very soft, even my husband noticed the difference! If your husband notices the difference ladies than I  say this product is a must!

Skin Md Shielding lotion works so as to have irritants kept – OUT, moisture – IN, making this
the perfect dry skin care product! Did I mention also that this lotion can be applied all over, not just on your face and hands!

Another wonderful thing about this lotion is not only does do every thing I mentioned before but it also has  a Sunscreen block of SPF 15! I am a big fan of lotions that are equipped with sunscreen because I would rather not smell like suntan lotion all day when I am plan on being out in the sun! This product has a light and very pleasing smell. Most sunscreens leave me feeling greasy and this product does not.

My daughter has hypothyroidism and I’ve read that Thyroid Malfunctions Can Cause Extremely Dry Itchy Skin. I found that Skin MD Natural™ is an excellent dry skin treatment for these conditions. They even talk about it on their website and this won me over to deciding that always having a bottle around my house is a must.

If you’d like to give this product a try for yourself before buying it, they offer free samples on their website! I would encourage everyone to at least give this product a try.

Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce Review & Giveaway!

100_6926

I’m so excited because today I received my shipment of Country Bob’s Sauce in the mail (as you can see, my daughter is excited too!)! I am really looking forward to making BBQ chicken with this sauce over this weekend! I had to tell my husband not to touch it until I use what I need for our chicken! My husband is a big sauce dipper, he’s constantly dipping foods into various sauces even some which I don’t think are so great of an idea.

Since I’m a christian, I love the fact that the creator of Country Bob’s Sauce gives God the credit where credit is due.
On the sauces site, he mentions Proverbs 16:3 which says, “Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.”  They also state that the true ownership of Country Bob, Inc. is in the hands of God. “Christ is our CEO” and He is an Awesome Boss! How wonderful is that?

Currently Country Bob’s also sells BBQ sauce, Seasoning Salt and Spicy All Purpose Sauce in addition to the regular All Purpose Sauce. Country Bob’s is more than a steak sauce; you can grill, cook, and marinate with it, or even put it in your soups, stews, baked beans, and your other favorite dishes. Want to experience the taste?

You could win Country Bob’s Sauce!

Country Bob’s Sauce is generously offering 2 winners, 2 bottles of Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce each to one of my lucky readers!
