I’ve taken the plunge on going green! I cloth diaper my baby, light my home with CFL light bulbs, I wash my clothes in cold water, line dry when I can, recycle, and I use totes when I go grocery shopping. Now the last thing I mentioned, I used to struggle with. My husband and I purchased totes from a grocery store but they always never ended up going back with us. We’d end up leaving them at home due to naturally forgetting them. Then something great happened, I learned about Breezy Bags! These bags are not like most grocery store tote bags, these bags fold up and they can fit easily into my purse, diaper bag, pocket, or on my husbands belt loop since they have a nice little clip.
Breezy Bags in Olive Green
I received a pouch of five Olive Green breezy bags to test out. I took them for a spin yesterday while out grocery shopping and let me tell you, these bags did the job! All my groceries for the next few weeks fit into these bags perfectly. I was taken by surprise that these bags can hold up to 15lbs each! They look so thin and frail but looks can be deceiving! After my grocery shopping trip, I easily folded these bags back up, put them in the pouch and tossed them back in my purse, ready for the next shopping trip! I don’t think I’ll have a problem having my eco friendly bags on the ready ever again!
These bags come in a variety of solid colors, they also have were you can add your business logo, which I found pretty neat. You can buy one set of bags for 16.99 or two for 30.00. It’s really a great deal! We’ll probably end up getting another set so my husband can keep some in the cup holder of his car and I can always keep mine in my purse.
Breezy Bags are solidly stitched out of maximum strength, minimum weight rip stop nylon cloth , to be the most versatile, eco-friendly, green reusable bags and totes imaginable: for all your shopping, storage and toting needs. If these grocery bags get damp, they dry in minutes. They may be machine washed in cold water and hung to dry.
They come with a 1 year limited warranty against defects of material or workmanship, and if you are unhappy with your Breezy Bags for any reason at all, you can contact them within 30 days of your purchase for a full refund.
And if you haven’t taken the green plunge yet, here’s some interesting fact that I’d like share:
In the U.S. we use around 270,000,000 plastic shopping bags in a single day.
One person uses more than 325 plastic shopping bags per year.
A family of four will use more than 1200 per year.
Only 1% of plastic bags get recycled.
700 plastic bags will be used in the life span of one reusable bag.
Paper bags are no better because they use more energy to produce than plastic.
There are over 100,000 marine deaths per year due to plastic bag ingestion.
It takes 1000 years for a single plastic bag to break down in a land fill.
Plastic bags do not biodegrade, they photodegrade. This means they are broken down by light and heat, which causes them to leach harmful toxins into the environment.
So if you are like me and naturally forget your other reusable shopping bags or you want to start thing more GREEN, get yourself some Breezy Bags today… trust me, you won’t regret it!
I am so excited that I was given the opportunity to review Baby Banz! Basically, Baby Banz Inc is a company that offers a complete line of sun protection products to keep both babies and kids protected from head to toe.
I couldn’t have received these sunglasses for my daughter at a better time. I had just swapped out her old car seat with the sun shade with a new one with out a shade. She loved her new car seat but would get quite cranky because when coming back home from our outings, the sun would be directly in her face! Baby Banz was a real help to me as the sunglasses protected my daughter’s eyes from the sun’s harsh rays with its 100% uv protection. They saved me a ride home without a cranky baby!
A few things I like about these glasses are that they fasten with adjustable Velcro around my child’s head so there’s no issue with falling off and I don’t have to worry about my little one pinching her fingers.
I love my daughters Pink Diva Camo Baby Banz and from my photos, you can see that my little one loves them too!
There is a limited warranty good for 6 months if they break!
For an added bonus all the frames are BPA and Phthalate free! That way your little one is safe if they start to nibble on them because we just know that’s going to happen.
My daughter can wear her Baby Banz sunglasses up until she is two, then she can graduate to the next sizes which are offered all the way up to age 10! I know it’s going to be hard for me to pick out her next pair because they come in a huge variety of colors!
Some specs from Baby Banz Sunglasses:
•Lenses 100% UVA/ UVB protection
•Ophthalmic quality; capable of being replaced with prescription lenses
•Strap: Neoprene elastic band matches chosen color of sunglasses
•Allows for flexibility, breath ability, and comfort
•Side adjustable Velcro® allows for years of wear as the child grows
•Sporty, sleek design
I’m recommending these to anyone who wants to keep their kid safe whether you are at the park, beach, ski slope, or just in the backseat of your car.

Since my little one has been roaming about, she is interested in everything and I do mean everything. If there’s a piece of fuzz on the floor she puts it in her mouth, if there’s a box sitting on the floor…she consumes extra fiber, and if there is a outlet on the wall…which there is, she plays with it and tries to figure out how to get the child safety caps out. I was pretty worried since she is so strong and I keep thinking very soon she will get those out and either choke on them or who knows what else…this all but drives me batty on a regular basis.
Now the answer to every mothers prayer is CoverPlug! They were really thinking of my child’s safety when it was thought up! It was invited to replace those unsightly and dangerous to little ones socket plug ins. I loved how easy these are to install just pressing it into place over your wall plug in outlet! I tried these out as soon as I received them and guess what, my daughter doesn’t even notice the outlet anymore. She happily plays with her toys and passes the wall outlet by every time! Out of sight and out of mind, I can totally agree with them on that!
If you are needing to make these more inauspicious because maybe you had a red wall, no problem you can easily paint them the same color as your wall. These are easy are quite secure enough so your children can’t remove them but you can with ease.
If you are like me and a worried about the safety of your child I would recommend you check out CoverPlug today.
I recently was given the opportunity to review Wett Giggles Soap! Inspired by a mom who wanted to encourage her six year old the importance of good hygiene and keeping his nails clean.
This handmade glycerin soap is a wonderful treat for your little ones, let me tell you! This isn’t just your plain ole’ regular
bar of soap, it’s topped with a toy as you can see in the picture above and it has a fingernail brush inside the soap! How neat is that? The soap smells just divine as it comes in several scents, Hamlet the little frog above scent is watermelon and some of the other scents vary from banana to blackberry. If you were wondering, each of the Wett Giggles all have fun names inspired by Shakespearean characters, due to the fact the creator loves Shakespearean plays.
I’m sure kids will love this product, I showed little Hamlet to my daughter and of course she wanted to eat it like most 8 1/2 month old would want to do. I’m going to probably purchase some of the other fun character soaps in the future since I know using these will be a fun way to encourage your child to remember to wash and keep their nails clean too. Wett Giggles is available for purchase at www.wettgiggles.com
