The perfect outdoors blanket. – BeautyBuddy’s Waterproof Picnic Blanket with Blanket Fastener Pegs.


This set is amazing. I live near the coast, and we enjoy going to the beach. This blanket set is perfect for that. It is perfect for any family outing that includes setting up a site. I am beyond thrilled that I was afforded the opportunity to review BeautyBuddy’s Waterproof Picnic Blanket with Blanket Fastener Pegs at a reduced Cost, in exchange for an unbiased and honest review.  In this set you will receive one waterproof blanket, and a set of four blanket stakes.
I am thrilled about the blanket stakes. I haven’t seen these before, and am very exciting about them. They really grasp on to the blanket, and hold it firmly in place. It’s always pretty windy here, and lying anything down, goes with risk of being blown askew. The color of the stakes that arrived with my set are green. We like to call it zombie green, lol. So, it’s one of our favorite colors. The stakes go into the ground approximately 5″. You can easily push them down with your hands. If you are on harder ground, then using your foot makes it easier. The blanket itself is awesome. They really planned this one out when they made it. Obviously, whoever designed it, designed it to meet their needs You can always tell when someone had a vested interest in their creation. The size of the blanket is 50″x58″ which is 4ft 2 inches x 4ft 10 inches. It’s a great size. Anything larger would really just get stepped all over, and anything smaller would make it unusable for more than 1 person. The outward side, is a soft 100% cotton fleece. Cotton is great against your skin. It shouldn’t cause any irritation or discomfort. The underside is waterproof, and a solid black color. It also adds a little padding to the blanket, making it even softer and more comfortable to sit on. This really helps keep your blanket dry if the grass is damp, or if high tide has gone out and the sand is still damp.  I love how this blanket folds up into a 12″ size to carry in and out of your venue. It has a Velcro closure and a built in nylon handle. It really doesn’t get anymore convenient than that. I received this blanket in their blue pattern. They do have 5 color choices though. This is perfect for the beach, campground, your kids sporting venues, picnicking, your backyard for the kids, and much more. I am highly impressed with this blanket, they did a fantastic job designing it.

Perfect for any infant. – Brooklyn Bamboo’s Soft Bamboo Organic Unisex Baby Hats.


Omg, these hats are just too cute. And so tiny. I love baby clothes.  I mean, what person doesn’t think baby clothes are just too precious. I have 3 kids myself. I remember when they were oh so tiny. I always kept a little hat on them to keep them warm and snuggly. Babies get cold so much easier than children and adults. I am just thrilled that I was afforded the opportunity to review Brooklyn Bamboo’s Soft Bamboo Hypoallergenic Unisex Baby Hats in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. You will get three wonderful hats in this package.
These hats are not only cute, but they are also made out of organic bamboo material. These little hats are soooo soft and snuggly. I absolutely love organic bamboo fabric. It’s normally way to expensive though. These hats are not only healthier to put on your little one, but they are quite affordable too. I recently learned that they still use formaldehyde to size fabric. And that is only one of the carcinogenic chemicals used on our fabrics. I can only wear natural fabrics with all my allergies. Occasionally I will get an all cotton item of clothing, and still can’t wear it. It sends my skin on fire. I can’t wear it due to all the chemicals they used on the fabric. It’s highly important to wash your clothes before wearing them. But you can really never get all those chemicals out with just one wash. These are organic. No chemicals used. No worries about your babies absorbing something they shouldn’t. I love how each hat has little teddy bear ears on them. Think of all the cute photo opportunities you can have with your wee one wearing one of these. The cuff on the hat is sewn put on the sides. It’s not going to unroll and cover their eyes. Bamboo is eco-friendly. I know that is very important to a lot of people. Bamboo fabric is also quite breathable, so it’s healthy for your skin. These hats come in gender neutral colors also. So, they are perfect as a baby shower gift. These are absolutely precious, and perfect for any infant.

An indispensable item to keep on you. – Zilu’s Smart Power Basic 4400mAh Portable Charger External Battery Pack.


So many families now are dependent on all of their electronic gadgets. It’s just how we function nowadays. My husband and older sons are always on the phone or pad with work. They have to keep their phones charged at all times, as well as their pads. I myself use my phone as my lifeline. I am quite pleased that I was afforded the opportunity to review Zilu’s Smart Power Basic 4400mAh Portable Charger External Battery Pack at a discount, in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. In this package you will receive 1 Zilu charger, 1 micro USB cable, and 1 instruction pamphlet. These are so easy to use, instructions really aren’t necessary.
I also homeschool my son. I like having a back up power source for the both of us. Both in home and when we go out. You never know when your power can go out. Having a back up power source is priceless. My son is nuts for anything electronic, lol. But more importantly, I need to have a phone charged at all time for a couple of important reasons. I suffer from very frequent anaphylactic reactions, and my phone really is my life line. The other reason of course, is to always be available for family. My husband works long hours. He texts and calls all the time. I always want to be available to him and my older sons. My husband is a commercial electrician, and he runs a lot of jobs as well as bids on a lot of jobs. He always needs to have both his pad and phone charged at all times. And since he is the one pulling wire on these job sites, there is normally no conventional electricity to hook up to. A portable power bank is his most convenient option. If he’s up in the ceiling working, but his phone charge is running low. He can hook up to this small in size charger and charge his phone. That’s priceless, really. We both have a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 right now. This can easily charge that, as well as his Samsung Pad. This power bank is such a great size. It’s 3 3/4″ long, 1 3/4″ wide and approx. 3/4″ thick. It easily fits into a pocket.
This back up battery source has a 4400mAh capacity. It easily supplies a full charge to our phablet phones. It has 4 little LED lights that light up in a flashing matter while you are charging it via the included micro USB cord. When you are charging your phone, pad, smart watch, flashlight, or whatever else you have that charges via a micro USB cord, these lights are solid on. As the power banks charge is decreasing, less lights will light up. This way you will know if your power bank needs a recharging. This unit has a power button. A lot of power banks don’t. There is also a flashlight built into this unit. You press and hold the power button to activate and deactivate the flashlight. I think this is another great feature, and an important one in a power failure, or car. If your car breaks down, you’ll at least have this flashlight on you. You can even use this flashlight while you are charging your phone. They say this Zilu power bank has a 1000 lifecycles in it, and they offer a 2 year limited warranty with it. My family and I think power banks are indispensable, and this is a great one.

I can’t believe how inspiring this Fitness Tracker Wristband by Tushi is.


I have only every really used my phone as my major activity tracker. This is my first actual fitness tracker wristband. I’m amazed how lightweight, and more efficient it is. I am quite pleased that I was afforded the opportunity to review Tushi’s Fitness Tracker Wristband in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. This product arrived professionally packaged, with two different sets of instructions, the fitness tracker, and the charging cord. This is their improved, 2nd Edition Fitness Tracker too.

This fitness tracker is also a watch. It will sync with both IOS and Android devices. I have a Galaxy Note 4, and I was able to sync it easily. The first thing you will want to do when your fitness tracker arrives is place your watch on the included charger. It’s a special charger just for this watch, so don’t lose it, lol. The charger plugs into a USB charger. The end that attaches to the wristband attached by magnets. You attach it to the underside of the watch. While your watch is charging, you will want to read the instructions. Start with the larger pamphlet that talks about what app to download to your smartphone so you can sync it. The app is called ISport Activity Tracker. It was free for me to download. After the watch was charged, it only took a few minutes to sync up with my phone. The time immediately updated, and I was off and running. I placed my watch into sleep mode while I slept. When I woke, I held the button for a couple of seconds. and woke up my watch. It will count your steps daily from midnight to midnight. I’m amazed at how many steps I take in my home, just doing chores, lol. I may end up giving this to my son. I’m trying to inspire him to up his activity level. He is young but technically inclined and inspired. He loves how he can just walk down the hallway or bounce in place, and the activity tracker picks it up. I’m actually amazed how mentally motivating this wristband is. Even for me, and I like to be active. I will get up and move just so my number goes up, lol. It has worked flawlessly for me so far, knock on wood. There are many functions you can get into. It has a 15 day memory, sleep monitoring, 4 setting vibration alarm, an exercise reminder, a 3D sensor, it’s water resistant, has a distance counter, powered with a Lithium Ion battery, calories burned, and time and date display. The charge lasts for the day easily. The screen goes black, saving energy when you are not actively using it. You press the button to get the time, and to scroll through your functions. After you let go of the button, the screen stays lit for less than 10 seconds. The strap is highly adjustable. There are 10 holes in the wristband. The clasp has two prongs that snap into two holes. If you make sure you press these through all the way, this band will not pop off by accident. I did a lot of home chores, included carrying large items out for the trash, and the band didn’t even budge. It just kept tracking my movement; awesome.  This watch is water resistant. You can shower with it too. Soaking it in water, like a bath, or pool will not be a good thing for this tracker, lol. It’s not waterproof, just highly water resistant.

I am highly impressed with this fitness tracker. It has been so easy to use, and unbelievably inspiring. I just can’t get over how inspiring it is by just being on your wrist. It absolutely motivates you to get up and move. And with the very sensitive tracking it has, it gives you immediate gratification. Even my older mother was hinting she wanted to wear it. The battle for the fitness tracker has begun, lol.

Achieve your timeless look with Sublime Beauty’s Ageless Serum with Renovage and Matrixyl.


Sublime Beauty has some incredible products. I have quite a few and have been pleased every time. I have used some of their products from all of their lines. This Ageless Serum with Renovage and Matrixyl is definitely one of their wonderful products. I am beyond thrilled that I was afforded the opportunity to review it in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. This is a 1oz bottle, and it’s a pump style bottle.
I have very sensitive skin, and I have absolutely no issues with this cream. It is a white, thick cream. Feels very soothing going on. There is only a light, natural scent. And it leaves behind nothing but smooth, soft skin. No residue whatsoever is noted after using this cream. This particular face cream has some special ingredients in it: Renovage and Matrixyl. These ingredients work at the cellular level. They help increase the lifespan of your facial skin cells. Clinical testing showed the cells increased resistance to oxidation and had faster healing times. They also help  fade your skin’s age spots, and helps to boost collagen production. You will definitely want to give this cream some time to show effects. It takes time to work down at the cellular level. Give it at least three to four weeks. You will want to apply it twice a day on clean, dry skin. It feels light going on. My skin looks brighter, and healthier after applying it. You will also notice one of my favorite positive effects, and that is a decreased pore size. Gradually as we get older, our pore size increases. That alone, really makes your skin look older and unhealthy. As my pore size started to shrink, it made a huge difference. I was actually shocked by it. It has even helped my skin to not react as much when I have my frequent allergic reactions. I really can’t say enough about Sublime Beauty’s beauty products and this incredible Ageless Serum. It works just like they state, and that alone is awesome. It takes about no time to apply but really improves the health of your skin, which in turn makes you look the best you can.

One strong phone holder. – ZiLu’s Universal Smart Phone Car Mount.


It seems that where ever anyone goes nowadays, they bring their cell phone with them. I know I never leave the house without mine. I have a separate GPS system in my car, but I really like having a phone mount in my car too. If I have to go on a long drive, I want my phone visible, so it doesn’t distract me in case the phone goes off. I want to be able to see at a glance if my husband or child needs me. I don’t care about anything else while I’m driving in regards to the phone. I am so glad I was afforded the opportunity to review ZiLu’s Universal Smart Phone Car Mount at a reduced cost, in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. This is a suction based car mount phone holder. But not just any suction mount. The base of this mount, is the super sticky adhesive base they have out now. It really holds.

My phone is the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. I currently have it in an Otterbox Defender Case. In other words, I have a very large phone. I have a lot of trouble using most phone mounts. This mount will actually hold my phone with my pocket clip attached. It even holds it securely. The head of this mount is on a ball. You can choose the angle you want easily. All you have to do is choose the right position you need, and tighten the adjustment knob behind the ball, so it stays in place. That’s it. You can use this mount anywhere you need to use your phone all the time. A lot of people rely on their phones for actual work. You could mount this on a table by your computer for a stand. Just remember to clean the area you are mounting to first. That will really help to enable a strong grip. This Zilu mount is made from pretty thick plastic. It is designed to hold many different sizes of cell phones. It is definitely the best one I have owned to date.

Works perfectly, and is so handy. – LingsFire’s Professional Wireless Digital Swimming Pool SPA Floating Thermometer Transmitter.


This is so cool. But then, as my husband would say, “it has a remote, so I love it,” lol. It is extra cool with the remote, I have to admit. There is always someone who wants to the temperature of the water. And being the digital age, this fits the bill. I am so glad that I was afforded the opportunity to review LingsFire’s Professional Wireless Digital Swimming Pool SPA Floating Thermometer Transmitter in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. This set comes well wrapped, with both the remote, instructions and the thermometer.
You will need to have 4 AAA batteries on hand to get this set rolling. No tools are needed either. This is probably one of the easiest things to set up. I didn’t even have to ask my husband, lol. The battery compartment on the remote is on the back, just pop it open and install two AAA batteries. You will hear a beep. Then unscrew the cap from the thermometer, and carefully semi pull out the battery compartment. It is attached by wires, so do not over pull. All you have to do is put in the other 2 AAA batteries, replace the battery compartment and screw the cap back on. It will pick up a temperature rating right away, and it should match the remote. Now, there are 4 buttons on the back of the remote; Mode, C/F, Set, and Max/Min. I had not switched it to F yet for the photos. I prefer reading mine in F. Fortunately the instruction book is fairly easy to read. You can set the calendar date, alarm with snooze, water temp. range, indoor temp. range, 433mhz wireless receives 2 channel’s water temp., and a Max/Min record of indoor and water temps. Just follow the directions, and it will take you through setting everything. I started with what I thought would be easiest, and I set the time first. Everything went pretty smoothly. I would pass my desired number and had to go back around. But that is quite common with setting new timers, remotes, and the like. It is for me anyhow, lol. This is actually a very smooth running, and accurate thermometer. They sync up really well, and immediately too. My youngest loves it, and I love having it in hand. If you have a hard time bending over to check the temp. it won’t be an issue anymore with this. Also, you won’t have to worry about your kids bending over the side of the pool to read the temperature. You can use this for any pool or spa, and even the bath for the little ones. So many people want to take the temp of the bath water to make sure it’s not too hot. And with all the babies getting burned in the bathtub, it’s a good idea. My son was having a blast with this. It’s a new added toy for him, lol. This is definitely an added positive in our household. I am extremely comfortable in recommending it.

Cuddly and secure in Family First Enterprises 4 Position Baby Carrier with Waist Belt and Hood.


I have 3 precious children. I remember the days of struggling to carry the baby carrier, my purse and store bags, among other things. Having a solid baby carrier is really freeing. But if you are like me, I am extremely picky about what I let touch my babies. I’m a tad over protective, lol. I received Family First Enterprises 4 Position Baby Carrier with Waist Belt and Hood in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. I am so glad it was sent to me. I really like this product. It will arrive sealed in a box, and it’s all one unit. There is nothing to assemble. There is also a nice illustrated pamphlet The instructions are laid out in steps with a coordinating photo. They are really easy to follow. I chose the brown and tan carrier. It also comes in blue and in pink. This carrier is rated for 8 – 29lbs. So you will be able to use it for a while. Now that I have been able to test this carrier, and just love it. I feel comfortable passing this down to a great family I know. They did not plan on having another child, since their only child is already a two time cancer survivor. But, they are happily expecting, and I can’t wait to share this with them.

This carrier is made quite well. The craftsmanship is definitely there. The stitching is tight, and the material is so soft, but sturdy. There are so many wonderful details in this carrier. I love that it can be worn both on the front of you and the back of you. When they are smaller, you obviously cradle them on the front of your body. They love to feel your body heat and hear your heartbeat. You can also carry them face out on your front after they can support their own head. When they start to grow, it’s easier to carry them on your back. And this way, they can see where they are going, instead of always trying to turn around. With the easy directions, it’s easy to get the hang of putting it on and adjusting it. The waist band is nice and wide for support, but very comfortable to wear. It Has an adjustable nylon webbing strap and closes with a large plastic buckle. All the straps are adjustable with nylon webbing and plastic buckles. These are very durable and reliable materials. They also clasp with smaller plastic buckles. There is both an open pocket and a pocket that closes by Velcro. These are quite common on most packs of all sizes and durability. The area where the baby gets to nestle and sit is nicely padded. They even show you how to do a nice sling position. It’s a hands free way to cradle your baby. I love that. The fabric is also breathable, which will definitely help your baby stay comfortable. The head rest is easily adjustable and removable It adjusts by Velcro. This seat will also help you nurse with a little privacy when held in the sling position. Although, you still could nurse in the upright position. I’ve done that in the past. And since your baby is nestled in the carrier, you won’t have to worry about reaching for a cloth, or something else you need from your diaper bag. This is definitely a sturdy, comfortable and highly convenient baby carrier. I am really impressed by it.

Southwestern Flare – Western Frontier’s Western Purses in Native American Styles.


I have discovered that with southwestern style, you either love it or you don’t. I have always loved it. I like the colors and geometric patterns. The southwestern style and Native American styling is intertwined. One of their beautiful designs is called Zapotec designs. I was afforded the wonderful opportunity to review one of Western Frontier’s purses at a reduced cost, in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. This purse was done in the Zapotec design. It has deep, rich colors and great geometric design.

This purse comes in a variety of colors. I chose the deep red tones in a purse they titled, Colorado. This purse is full of the deep, rich tones of red, turquoise, gold, black and ivory. They really play off each other perfectly. This purse is made from wool. It does have a full lining inside of it. The handles are made from faux leather in a brown coloring. It’s pretty soft, and all the stitching was done well. I hate tiny purses because you can never fit what you actually need in them. This purse is quite roomy. The only downside would be it only has one pocket, lol. I love pockets. The important thing is, it’s big enough to carry my epi-pens, and Benadryl bottle, plus so much more. The size of this purse is 16 x 4 x 10.5 inches. The handle drop is 10.5 inches. It’s enough length to easily throw  on when you have things in your hands, or wearing a winter coat.. I had a purse recently that had a tighter shoulder strap length. It was hard to get it on my shoulder in some jackets of mine, or when my hands were holding on to things I had to take down to the car with me. That was very annoying. This one is definitely easier. It’s definitely eye catching too. And wool is a great natural fiber. It naturally repels dust mites, and inhibits mold and bacteria growth. Since it is lined, you won’t have to worry about your purse contents damaging you purse. I really like the full zipper closure. I’ve had contents of my purse fall out many a time with snap closure purses, lol. So I really appreciate zippers now. The wool is thick, and done very well. This is a beautiful purse I can definitely recommend.

You can feel sexy while still being a lady. – Hers by Herman Lace Thongs.


thongs 1

Every lady enjoys feeling sexy. Even though we are moms, aunts, sisters, daughters, hard workers and multi-taskers, we still want to feel pretty, sexy and powerful. I homeschool my son, and my attire stays casual, but this gal likes to wear thongs. It’s my underwear of choice. And I’m pretty positive my husband likes me to wear them too, lol. I was thrilled when I was afforded the opportunity to review Hers by Herman’s Lace Thongs, Set of Two at a reduced cost, in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. There are four different color options, but I chose the very pretty Green/Blue combination. Even though one pair is marked as blue, it has a mint like color to it. They are both such feminine and beautiful colors. I was quite pleased when they arrived.

These thongs run true to size. They are made from 90% nylon and 10% spandex .The lace is 85% nylon and 15% spandex. I can have a lot of issues with lace. I have very sensitive skin, and lace is normally just too itchy to wear. Fortunately, Hers by Herman’s thongs are so silky soft. The lace is luxurious against my skin, just perfect. They are very comfortable to wear. I love thongs because you don’t have to worry about unsightly panty lines, or underwear riding up on you. Neither is an attractive feature. These thongs also sit low on the hip. That is perfect for me. I am 5’3″, so I tend to wear low rise pants. Most other pants go over my belly button, lol. I don’t have to worry about my thong strap showing. I can just be comfortable while still feeling pretty and feminine. All while feeling flirty with my husband, of course.

Since these are lace, I would highly suggest washing these in a lingerie bag. That way they won’t have a chance to snag on anything. Since these are nylon and spandex, they are so easy to wash and care for. This company seems to really understand real women. Real women have curves, no matter what their size. Most women aren’t built like a pole. I have a couple other items by this company and the fit is both comfortable and flattering. I have been nothing but impressed by their quality, comfort, style and fit.
