Tread Tough Mobile Phone Case

I recently had the opportunity to review a universal phone case for my Hubby's Samsung Galaxy II from Body Glove Mobile.  I was looking for a case that my husband could use at work to place his current case.  

I chose the Tread Tough Mobile Rugged X-Large Vertical Universal Cell Phone Case.  It looked like it could handle being knocked around and wouldn't easily fall off while he was crouching and moving around while stocking shelves.  When it arrived I was very pleased with it but there was only one problem....he couldn't use it with his current case on it.  So I couldn't use it either because we have the same phones and cases.  This was s bummer because his current case is one that fits around the phone and protects it in case the phone is dropped while in use. 

Since the case was a great case, I asked my neighbor if she would have use for it.  She also had a smartphone and no case.  Yikes.  So we tried her phone with the case since it is a universal case and it fit perfectly.  She used the case everyday and loves it.  She likes the fact that she can keep her phone on her hip and not have to dig through her purse to find it when it rings.  

I am glad that although this case was not the best fit for my husband and I my neighbor was able to use it and loves it.  I would suggest this case to anyone who wants a case for their hip.

Body Glove has been generous enough to offer 20% off any order plus Free Shipping when you use code BG20UV at checkout!

Epson LabelWorks Printer

I use label printers all the time for almost everything.  I use them to make labels for my files to labeling spice jars.  Label machines are a convenience that I would hate to live without.  You can only use masking tape or paper and scotch tape to label so many things.  Besides, they both look unattractive while printer made labels look nice and can be read easily.

Soy Serenity Candles

I have always loved candles.  I love the light they give off and the ambiance.  For me candles must also have a great scent though.  I don't want anything too strong because it can easily give me a headache but a light scent given off is perfect.  The Candle Shop has scented jar candles that are wonderful.

The Perfect Clock for Your Little One

The Tot Clock is unlike any clock I have ever seen before.  It was designed especially for little ones who cannot tell time yet.  It has so many features I am not even sure where to begin.  I guess the first thing to tell you is that the clock face is lighted and changes colors to teach your little Munchkin when it is time to sleep and when it is time to be awake.  It also changes colors for timeout and encouragement time.  The five different colors are red (timeout), blue (bedtime), yellow (awake), light blue (nap time), and green (encouragement).  I love that nap time and bedtime have different colors of blue.

Almondina Cookies

 Almondina is owned by Yuval Zaliouk who is a symphany conductor and gourmet chef.  The recipe for this delicious cookie was handed down from his grandmother who called them Petit Gateau Sec.  When she passed she handed the recipe down to her daughter ( Yuval's mother) who in turn passed it down to Yuval.  Yuval was excited to have this recipe because although his grandmother was generally forth coming with her recipes this was one she kept close until her death.

Tropical Traditions Raw Honey

I have tried a few different products from Tropical Traditions including Coconut Oil and Palm Shortening.  All Tropical Traditions products are organic and held up to very high standards.  I have enjoyed each and every product that I have ever had the pleasure to try from their company.

POP ART Junior Chef Baking Set

Munchkins 1 & 2 love to help me in the kitchen but many of the kitchen tools are too large for them to handle well.  There is also the fact that the stove is dangerous and they can't really do much of the cooking, only help prep.  Not to mention it takes a while to cook many things and kids do not have patience.

American Apparel

I had the awesome opportunity to review 3 different items from American Apparel and was thrilled with what I got.  I got a dress for myself, one for Munchkin 2 and a pair of red flats for me.  The ordering process was super easy too.  The most difficult part was choosing the items that I wanted.  I am very indecisive and I had so many options.

Seductively French Massage Oil Candle

I have recently started using massage oil candles and I am loving them.  Seductively French has a wonderful massage oil candle in two fantastic scents to help sooth and relax, Lavande Vanillee and Citrus Sorbet.  I had the opportunity to try the Lavende Vanillee and it smelled fantastic.  This candle not only smells great but it looks great too.  The solid oil is set in a mirrored votive sot hat it is beautiful and eye catching even when not lit.

Check Out Newman's Own Organics New Products

I recently had the opportunity to review the newest addition to the Newman's Own Organics cookies along with their Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar.  The cookies were delicious as always.  The two new cookie flavors are Spelt Ginger Snaps and Vanilla Newman-O's.  I think I may have gotten 2 of each cookie when the bag was first opened then between the Hubby and Munchkins they disappeared.

Family Manifesto


 I love prints that I can hang on my wall and mean something.  I don't like to hang something in my living room just because "it looks nice".  If it has words on it then they need to be saying something meaningful not just a bunch of gibberish.  Life Manifestos has me covered in that regard.  From them I got a personalized family Manifesto that had my families last name on it and beautiful wording.

Drugs Make You Un-Smarter

I wish I would have known about this book a year ago when I had to explain to Munchkin 1 what heroine was along with its effects.  We found out someone close to us was addicted to heroine and had been for a over a year.  I wasn't sure how to explain things to him at first but decided that since honesty is always the best policy I told him the truth.  I told him what was happening, the effects, and the consequences that can all come from heroine.  This was not something I had ever planned for or wanted to have to explain to him at 8 years old but it happened and I did.  I made sure to explain things in a way he could understand and made sure he understood it was a sickness and the person just needed help.  I don't want you to think I told him every detail of what was happening, I censored it quite a bit but he had a good grasp of what was going on and how it would effect him in the long run.

Drugs Make You Un-Smarter is a book written by Savanna Peterson, a 15 year old who has had her own experiences with someone close to her being addicted to substances, and her grandmother and established author, Jill Vanderwood.  Savanna gives accounts of her own story and how she deals with peer pressure.  The book also has first hand accounts from various people of their addictions and how they got sober.

What's It Like, Living Green? Kids Teaching Kids by the Way They Live

I have mentioned many times in my reviews and other post how I try to do what I can to reduce and improve my carbon footprint. I am sure I could do more but I think I am on the right path. Recently I was asked to review a book for kids about "living green" called, What's It Like, Living Green? Kids Teaching Kids by the Way They Live by Jill Vanderwood. I decided that since this book was great for Munchkin 1's age group then I would have him review it. Like me Munchkin 1 has a passion for trying to be environmentally smart. He has actually inspired me in many instances.

Lilla Rose Hair Jewelry

Munchkin 2 has pretty long hair and it is always in her face.  We have been battling with her for what seems like forever to be able to put her hair up or at least back with barrettes to keep it out of her face.  Especially when she is eating.  But she fights us tooth and nail (never understood that expression) and refuses to let us do anything with her hair.

Piczzle Personalized Picture Puzzle

I love puzzles.  And I love pictures.  I now have a way to enjoy both at the same time!  Piczzle takes your favorite pictures and turns them into personalized puzzles.  I think this is a genius idea because instead of just looking at the picture up on a shelf somewhere and it barely getting noticed you can enjoy your pictures in a whole new way.  Each time you do the puzzle it brings back the memories of when the picture was taken.

It's a Wrap

Wrap skirts are a new sensation and I for one and jumping on the train!  I just got my first wrap skirt from Sues Wrap Skirts & More and love that Munchkin 2 can wear it too!  How many articles of clothing can you and your 3 year old both wear?  None, except this one.  

Guppi Sh(you)s

Guppi Shoes are a truly unique shoe.  I have never seen a shoe that you can create the entire look of.  You can choose so many different aspects of your shoes.  The only thing you don't fish for is the type of sole.  The standard sole is a typical tennis shoe sole.
