Pacific Cornetta Review

mc-5165-ss
I’m reviewing a company today that is literally a hop, skip, and a jump away from me here in the northwest! Whether you are searching for products to use at home, at the office, or trecking about in the great outdoors.  I guarantee you’ll find whatever you may searching for at Active Gear.

Active Gear is a company that has been around since the late 90’s as a part of Pacific Cornetta Inc.  They offer  sophisticated, functional, and durable products that encourage healthy lifestyles.

I was thrilled when given the opportunity to review a couple of their great products.  I was sent the Tea-zer™ Tea Brewing Tumbler and the Cascade Stainless Steel Water Bottle-Go Refillable .

The Cascade Stainless Steel Water Bottle-Go Refillable is a great product. I love the long sleek shape of this bottle, which makes it easy to hold onto to. The slender shape also make this bottle ideal for cup holders on bikes and in your vehicle.  The BPA-Free top easily screws on and off. The hook on the top makes it easy to attach it to any number of my bags, straps, and stroller.  I found that this 22 oz bottle is quite light weight even when filled with my beverage!

I’ve washed this bottle in the dishwasher, skeptical at first. I thought maybe this bottle would take on a weird taste or smell afterward but it didn’t! I think I should mention that the lid on the bottle should be washed by hands since they recommended it. I can just imagine the top melting like many other things I’ve put in the dishwasher. Oops.

I personally love my new water bottle and can’t find a single flaw. It’s reusable and recyclable! I’m looking forward to the new 12 oz. bottles that will be arriving this summer in a wide variety of colors!mc-3272t-group

The next product I’m reviewing is the  Tea-zer™ Tea Brewing Tumbler! I’m a pretty big tea drinker! Here in the Northwest where it’s prone to be a bit cooler, you’ll likely find me with a nice warm cup of tea.

But what if I wanted a cup of loose tea on the go? The Tea-zer is a god send! How it works is you just pour hot water through the strainer filled with loose leaf tea at the top, and you have yourself a nice hot cup of tea. You have the option of taking the stainless steel infuser out or you can keep it in. The sip lid has perforated holes that prevents you from drinking the loose the tea leaves. The tumbler is well-insulated to keep the tea warm without burning my hands too! If I need this on the go, there’s a nice little D-ring to clip to a carabiner for traveling or carrying.  It comes in red, spring water as well as the traditional clear. I love this and I know this would make a wonderful gift to the avid tea drinker in your life.

Buy it: You can purchase the 22 oz. Cascade Stainless Steel Water Bottle at $16.99 and the 10 oz. Tea-zer™ Tea Brewing Tumbler for just $15.99!

…and added bonus, if you spend $30 you get a free Field and Stream Multi-Tool.

Oliver’s Labels Review and Giveaway

header-logo

I’ve been fortunate  not to lose any of my daughter things, whether it be cups, clothes, shoes, books, and snack bowls the list could  go on forever.  I do know the importance of labeling things and was tipped off on a great label company called Oliver’s Labels!

Oliver’s Labels
was generous enough to send me samples of their original, mini, shoe, and clothing labels in the style or pattern of my choice to review.  Since I mainly will be using these labels for my daughter though I’m not limited, I choose the Toy animals kid themed design.
lrg_toyanimals
So, how was I labeling things before? Honestly, I was using masking tape and a sharpie. Yes this worked…somewhat. Was this method cute and stylish? No. Was this method helpful? Yes, until my daughter peeled the tape off.

I had a dilemma on my hands and needed something else and I found that the labels from Olivers worked much better. Why do these work? Well, they are ‘waterproof, weather-proof, scuff-proof, tear-resistant, high-performance vinyl with super-strong adhesive and high quality, full-color printing. They are made to be long-lasting in a huge range of environments.

If you have searched the net, you’ve found other label companies who offer the same sort of labels. You are wondering what does Oliver’s have that they don’t have. Let me enlighten you! Get ready! They have a free online lost and found system, each label has the Oliver’s Labels website address and your code. ‘They then match you to your Found-it™ tracking system code and send you a notification email right away. Oliver’s Labels acts as an intermediary between you and the finder so you never have to share any of your personal information!’  That sums it up folks, not only are you labeling your things so they hopefully don’t get mixed up but if they do, there’s a wonderful chance that your item will be returned to you!

There’s a lot to choose from as they have Original, Mini, Shoe, Iron-on, Large Bag Tag, Small Bag Tag and the new Stick-eez™. They also have gift cards starting at only $20! There’s free shipping on orders of $30.00 or more too!
I encourage you to check them out at http://www.oliverslabels.com/

See Kai Run Review and Giveaway

Happily admiring her Dorothy Shoes

seekairunMy daughters comfort is always first when it comes to picking out  shoes.  She  started walking at nine months old and now she’s pretty close to full on running. So you can see how important it is for me as her mother to try to find the right kind of shoe with her roaming all over the place. As with picking out any shoes, I’m willing to sacrifice style and good looks for shoes that won’t be hurting or putting any strain my daughter’s feet. It was nice to find out that with the shoes from See Kai Run, Smaller, or the Eleven line, I don’t have to sacrifice a thing…style included!

I was able to review the Dorothy sandals from  See Kai Run line for my daughter Melody. I love these shoes! They are quite the distinctive black sandal with adorable little white polka dots fashioned in a fun wave with a white lined trim! Fashion set aside, these shoes are Handcrafted from butter-soft sheepskin leather, with a Flexible rubber sole – healthy for developing feet but sturdy enough for outdoor play, Generous width and wide toe box for plenty of wiggle room, Padded collars for extra comfort, Adjustable Velcro closures make theses shoes easy to get on and ensure a great fit, and breathable leather insole and lining! What more could you possibly ask for in a shoe? …and the answer is you can’t!  These shoes meet the American Podiatric Medical Association’s rigorous standards for foot health and functionality! Yes that’s right, See Kai Run has been awarded the APMA’s prestigious Seal of Acceptance.

See Kai Run offers a wide range of sizes, smaller 0-18 mo, see kai run for kids 6-3 years, and now eleven for ages 3-8 years! It won’t be hard to purchase any pair of these shoes as I can shop in confidence knowing I’m making the best choice, but it will be hard in choosing which pair of shoes to buy. The wide variety of colors and styles make is slightly difficult but that means they certainly have something for everyone!

I support companies that are giving back one hundred percent! It’s important in trying to reach others in what you do and See Kai Run is doing just that. They have a promotion that goes on a few times a year where every pair of shoes that is purchased, another pair is donated to Soles4soles.  This is an organization that delivers shoes to children, and adults who are in need.   In June 2008, “Share a Pair” donation matching event took place and See Kai Run donated over 8000 pairs of shoes to Soles4Souls and the World Association for Children and Parents. In November/December 2008 during another “Share a Pair” matching event, See Kai Run donated over 9700 pairs toSoles4Souls.

I encourage you to check out these wonderful shoes and while you are there, be sure to sign up for their mailing list. You can find the mailing list on the bottom of their page. Trust me, you don’t want to miss out on the great promotions that they have going on throughout the year!

Win it: See Kai Run is giving away a pair of shoes from their Smaller or See Kai Run collections.

To Enter:  Visit See Kai Run, and let me know which are  your favorite shoes.

Snorg tees has something for almost everyone and if you can’t find what you are looking for on their main site, check out their partner shop. You can find baseball caps to bibs there.

I read their bio and I was quite amused as it read: Snorg Tees was started in 2004 by a group of friends who decided that they weren’t cut our for real jobs! Since their other option of being international jewel thieves wasn’t going to work out, they decided to go in to the tee-shirt business!

My husband and I were sent the Great Scot and the I Don’t Want To Grow up shirt. These shirts look and feel great! The response I get is great, people crack a smile or ask where I got my shirt! It not only means we have good taste, it means we also are doing our part in helping the team at Snorg tees not have real jobs. LOL

Win It: One lucky winner will win a tee-shirt of their choice from Snorg!

1. To enter, go to Snorg Tees and look around. Then come back here and tell me which shirt you would choose if you won.
