Breezy Bags Review

fivefullbags
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!

Baby Banz Review


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
•Durable polycarbonate
baby_banz_logo
•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.

Over the weekend

100_6873

Over the weekend my DH, DD, and I went out with our life group. We spent time over at a sports/game club called “Players” but we didn’t get to play anything because they were way to busy. So everyone decided on going to a restaurant called” Claim Jumper” for dessert.  I had never been to Claim Jumper before.  What blew my mind is that they have this huge ten layer cake that you can order a slice from! I wasn’t’ up for that much cake so I just had a hot fudge sundae instead ( pictured above).  It was pretty yummy.

The Superbowl was really good, much better than last years game in my opinion! My favorite commercial was the cute little bug one by Coke! I really enjoyed the little grasshoppers, it brought back lots of childhood memories.  Here’s the commercial again just in case you missed it!

I’ve been working on getting more organized since I’ll be doing more reviews, giveaways, and graphic design this year! It’s been a very productive year for me and by this I am blessed. I’ve been a little busier but I always make sure to make the time for my family. 🙂 Buiser it better than naught and with being busy it means being more productive.
