Kids Chair World | $100 Gift Card Giveaway! {review & giveaway}


There’s something pretty special about having your own place to sit. And it’s no different whether for a child or an adult. Children don’t like to be left out and to have their own place to sit helps them feel included! It also teaches children about ownership and can encourage a very essential social need on how to sit properly.

So where would you look for an extra special chair for your child? Look no further than Kids Chair World . This business was a way a stay-at-home-mom like myself found a way to bring in a little extra income but in doing so she is doing so much more for parents and children alike!

Kids Chair World offers high quality, durable, and functional kids chairs and kids room furniture at competitive prices all in one place. You can find chairs for the outdoors, potty training, personalized sofas, booster seats, rocking chairs, space saving furniture, and more!

The website is very easy to navigate by category, search, manufacture, and best sellers. Each of the chairs offer full product descriptions and have user ratings as well as reviews. If in the USA you can purchase any chair and receive free shipping and if you aren’t happy with your purchase, there’s a 30 day money back guarantee.

I was able to review the P’kolino Little Reader Soft Kids Chair in green from Kids Chair World for my almost three year old daughter. I chose to go with this chair for a number of reasons and am not all disappointed with my choice.

My daughter loves her books! She could look at her books for hours upon hours. This is why I knew that the P’kolino Little Reader Soft Kids Chair was the perfect pick for her. This chair has many features but my personal favorite is the book pockets on each side of the chair! My daughter can easily slip a book in and out for when she’s done or ready to read a new one!

This chair is super light in weight, it’s made from the highest quality material! On the back of the chair there’s a handle your little one can use to tote this chair to their favorite spot. This is great for us because my daughter likes to move her chair from room to room so as to be closer to us wherever we may be.

I like the style of this chair. It has a wide base on purpose so as to keep kids safe. It’s very stable and does not topple over like most foam chairs. The material is a stain-resistant faux suede. It’s soft to the touch and my daughter says it’s very comfortable to sit in.

Overall I am very happy with our selection from Kids Chair World and would highly recommend parents or grandparents looking for a special chair to check out their site!

Features include more than 200 beloved Bible stories, bold, bright illustrations, a discussion starter with each story, and so much more. The Read and Share Bible makes it easy for you to create long-lasting memories as you encourage a love for reading God’s Word.

My family and I are huge fans of the collection of Read and Share Bible books available! They are perfect for introducing the Word of God to children without being too wordy or confusing. They add just enough of many popular stories to get the point across. As a parent, I really appreciate the simplicity.

The Read and Share Bible itself offers more than 200 Bible Stories. The illustrations are eye catching and display a scene from each story perfectly. Every story in this collection also features a discussion starter to get the ball rolling and encourage young minds to really think about what was just read. I love it!

I’ve been reading this Bible to my daughter Melody whom is almost three years old. It’s great because when I read now she’s asks questions about the stories and often asks me to read it again. It’s great to see her learning about God through this Bible! I would encourage everyone to pick up a copy of this fantastic Bible. I’m sure you’ll love it just as much as the children it’s being read to!

Zookies *Etsy* {review & giveaway}


A few weeks ago while searching for diaper covers on Esty, I discovered Zookies. I fell in love right away with the one of kind handmade, stylishly cute diaper covers! I also noticed some really cute burp cloth sets, bibs, and reusable snack bag sets that would be fun to own!I was given the opportunity to review a  Zookies diaper cover for my baby boy. It took me awhile to decide which cover to get because all of the fun fabrics used are so adorable. I went with the “Pirate Booty” diaper cover.

I loved how personal and ready to gift the diaper cover I received was when I chose to review was! It was wrapped in tissue paper and around the diaper itself was a red ribbon tied in a bow. Attached with a safety pin was the instructions on how to care for the diaper and a cute business card. It always great to see such care when purchasing an item whether for yourself or as gift for someone else.

I’ve been using the “Pirate Booty” cover for over a week now with my prefold diapers and it’s been working out wonderfully on my 6 week old baby boy. The inner layer of the diaper covers is waterproof PUL (polyurethane laminate) and the outer layer is 100% cotton We haven’t had any leaks at all, I must say I’m extremely impressed! Note that for my own personal preference,  I choose to review this cover with the double row of snaps option but note Zookies also offers the “Crossover” hook & loop closure.

I’d like to  introduce you to all to Michele Zook of Zookies. I really enjoyed and was beyond blessed in getting to know her better. I say she’s got a lot of passion in what she does and I hope she continues to do well with Zookies! Here are the interview questions I so much enjoy hearing answered by Etsy artisans.

Getting to know the Artist…

1.Why did you decide to start doing this on Etsy and how long have you been?

I was an elementary school teacher before having children. We knew we wanted me to stay home with the kids. What I didn’t know was how much I would love being at home with the kids. Our oldest will be starting kindergarten this fall. But my husband’s job is very demanding with an erratic schedule, so we thought it would be best to have someone at home for consistency (even once the kids are in school full time). I did not want to go back to teaching which is a rewarding job but very emotionally draining and time-consuming! I wanted to find something from home that I could do to justify staying home, while supplementing our income a bit. I used cloth diapers, so the idea came about that way. I began researching patterns, etc. eventually drafting my own, and began practicing on my nephew. The Etsy store opened in the summer of 2010. We launched our own website Zookiescrafts later in the fall.

2. What do you enjoy the most when creating your products?

Well, honestly, first, I love shopping for fabric! I am even getting my three-year-old daughter excited about fabric. I enjoy taking fabric and transforming it into something functional! Most of the time, I do my sewing either late at night or early in the morning. It is quiet except for the hum of the machine. It is my time to think or not much at all and just decompress.

3. Apart from creating things, what do you do?

I mentioned my previous career as an elementary school teacher. I have a wonderfully supportive husband and two happy, healthy children. I am active in church as a Sunday School teacher to the preschoolers and playing on the praise team. I also play with a community band. I always wanted to play the flute and decided to learn before I had kids. I enjoy it so much that I still do it. It is my one night out each week. I absolutely love performing. Other than that, I try to scrapbook, run, and read.

4. What inspires you?

What inspires me? This is probably a bit off topic, but I feel led to share. My father was adopted, and I decided to start looking for his mother about two years ago. I just found her in December of 2010 and we met her on Jan. 22 of this year. She was young and unwed and forced to give him up for adoption. She shared that she never even got to see him. So, seeing a mother see and touch her son for the first time was and is beyond description. I had prayed daily for this reunion for almost two years and to see it come to fruition is inspiring to me that prayer is a powerful thing. That relationships are important, and we as a society are often too busy for one another. I continue to thank God for reuniting this mother and son. The entire family is very large with my grandmother having 10 children in addition to my dad. What a blessing!!

5. In five years you’d like to be…?

In five years, I would like to be no other place than where I am right now. I have my health, my family and friends, and a job I love doing. God has truly blessed me, much more than I deserve, and I am humbled by it each and everyday.

Overall Thoughts…

I wouldn’t hesitate at all to purchase more Zookies diaper covers and other products in the future. I was really happy with the cover I was able to review. I can easily see myself coming back to Zookies not just for myself but for baby shower gifts too.

Buy it!

Zookies start at $15.00 ranging in sizes extra small (7-10lbs) to large (25+ lbs), burp cloth sets of 3 are $12.00, Set of two bibs for 10.50, and the reusable sandwich/snack sets are only $10.50

Win it!

Michele has graciously offered to give one winner a custom diaper cover.  The winner gets to pick the print, size and closure.

Enjoy Lighting | Flameless Candles {review & giveaway}


I truly have a spot in my heart for candles so when I was contacted with the opportunity to review a couple, I couldn’t refuse! The candles I am reviewing are from Enjoy Lighting Flameless Candles. I’ve heard the buzz behind LED candles but wasn’t sure I wanted to take the plunge and purchase those for my home, that is until until now.

I was able to review two candles in the Burgundy Distressed Pomegranate Passion Fragrance which were the perfect addition to a romantic Valentine evening at home with my honey.They provided a very cozy feel and an intimate ambiance.

These candles are made of real wax and have three LED light precisely placed and programmed to create a flickering effect that looks just like a real flame! How awesome is it that no one would even know the difference unless they took a look inside the candle itself to know it didn’t have a real flame! Not having a real flame is fantastic especially with children and pets around. Little ones are super curious and we know accidents can happen. These are fantastic to prevent unwanted incidents.

If you are wondering how they work take note that you’ll need to purchase batteries separately from your candles. Theses have on and off switches so that the candles can be set to run for four, six or eight hour durations!

The fragrance of these candles is light and fresh and not over the top in the least bit. I usually am very sensitive to certain candles fragrances but had no problem with these whatsoever.

Enjoy Lighting Flameless Candles are available in many different styles, colors and fragrances. These are the perfect decorative addition to any room.

Buy It: Enjoy Lighting Flameless Candles are available to purchase at Target, Michaels, Kmart, and other fine retailers. (To see a full list of retailers, click here.)

Win!

One  reader will win Two Randomly Selected  Flameless Candles from Enjoy Lighting!

To Enter: Visit Enjoy Lighting and comment on which candle you like the most.
