How Many Kids Alphabet Plates Review and Giveaway



How cute are these placemats?  Cody and Jacob each just got one from Alphabet Plates!!  They were both so excited to have them that they were running around the house carring them yesterday. These placemats are 11x16" and made using heavy-duty 10ml laminate.  We have many (really like 10) placemats and these are the thickest and most sturdy of all of them!!

Cody got one of the Face It Placemats.  They are really neat because you personalize the whole thing.  You pick the background color, hair/eye color, hair style, and can even add cute little accessories like barrettes or a crown.


Jacob picked one of the Sports Placemats. They carry 9 different sports to choose from. Jacob loves riding his bike so he picked the cycling placemat. Plus it is blue which is his FAVORITE color.

Another cool way to personalize them is to pick 2 different languages.  On the front of the placemats it says in English: Fork, Knife, Spoon, Napkin, and Cup.  But on the back I had it printed in Spanish!!  Jacob and Cody both love it becaus ethey walk around pretending to speak Spanish!  They offer 17 languages and you can special request others.

They also make personalized plates!! You can get them with the Face It designs, just like the placemats!  But my favorite thing is the Kidfood plates!!!  They are the cutest things ever.  They say things like "[Your Kid's Name] loves _______". They have 30+ foods.  My favs are cake, donuts, sushi, pasta, and chocolate.  the plates also have a really cute picture of the food! 

How cute is this plate?  I want all of them!!!  Thanks to Laura @ Alphabet Plates, you can save 10% off your purchase for the entire month of May with the code MAYTEN.  Just enter it at checkout.  Now for the best part: 1 lucky reader will win any placemat!!

I Heart Faces Photo Challenge- Smiles

As I was cruising around the web the other night, I was looking at different photography sites and found I Heart Faces.  They have a great blog for people with varing photography skills.  They do a weekly photo challenge and this week's theme is Smiling!  I had a hard time picking just one.  But I decide to go with this one of Cody looking in the mirror.  I love it because he looks in the mirror and smiles like "Oh Hey.  How you doing?"

How Many Kids Review/ Giveaway Ergonomic pen - UGLee Pen

Have you heard of the UGLee Pen?  UG stands for Ultimate Grip and Lee is the DR.- yes Doctor, who invented them.  I love writing but after a few minutes my hand cramps up and my fingers tingle so I stop writing with a pen and get on my laptop.  I have tried almost every kind of pen and my (old) favorite was the Doctor grip pen but I managed to break it at their little grip.  So when I got the chance to review these pens, I was so excited!!  I got a 3 pack of the pens in yellow.  I love the grip because it is HUGE and made to form to the anatomy of the human hand.  It is the greatest ergonomic pen I have ever tried. 

Plus it is a really comfortable pen.  My husband uses it and he loves it.  My momther who has had surgery for carpel tunnel, and now has arthritis, uses it and can write for extended periods of time pain free.  I am also letting my 4 year old use it, because the grip helps him use the "triangle grip" correctly.  He only wishes I had gotten a blue pen, not yellow.  Speaking of colors you can get ink in 3 colors: black, blue, and red.  You can get the pens in 7 different colors! 

Thanks to Dr. Lee, I have a 3 pack of pens to giveaway to 1 lucky winner!!!

Review/ Giveaway SmartMom Jewelry

Don't you love this necklace?  The swirly pink design totally reminds of cotton candy!  Another great thing about it is it is made for teething babies!!  Have you heard of Teething Bling by SmartMom Jewelry? Some great info about them: "Teething Bling® products are non-toxic, phthalate, BPA, PVC and lead free and all pendants come with a breakaway clasp."  I can let Mason, Cody and Jacob tug and pull and check out my necklace without fear they will break it.  Mason can even chew it!! It is made out if a really soft silicone.

When we are the grocery store and Mason starts to get fussy I take the necklace off and let him chew on it.  He loves it and it keeps him quiet.  SmartMoms also make bracelets that are just as safe and just as cute as the teething necklaces. And they also make keychains!!  They also make Tween Bling which is perfect for girls like Kayla who love jewelry but always put it in their mouth.

Did I mention they come in a million (ok around 25) different patterns.  You can get one to match almost any outfit you can think of.  You can also get a Gift Set that comes with 2 bracelets and a necklace.  They are color coordinated.  How thrilled would you be to get one as a baby shower gift?  You think about Mother's Day, its in what 2-3 weeks?  Do you know a new mother who would love to receive this gift set?  I do!

Well what about winning one?  Amy at SmartMoms was super nice and offered one necklace in their new color pink calcite (see picture above) as a giveaway!!

Lunchbox Love Notes Review

" Positive words can change someone's day, a life, and eventually the world."  One of my first memories is being in kindergarten and everyday when I would open my lunch, their would be a cute note from my mom.  Not only was it sentimental but it helped me with my reading skills. 

Now 23 years later, I am the one packing lunches and (sometimes) putting notes in for the kids to find.  Imagine my thrill when I discovered Lunchbox Love Notes!!  They are little cards that on one side say things like "I know you are working hard" or "I will always love you no matter what" and on the other side they have interesting facts (they remind me of the Snapple facts on the inside of their lids) such as "Almonds are members of the peach family" and "Wrigley Field did not have lights until 1988".

I received them at the perfect time.  My kids were about to start TCAP, which is TN's yearly standarized tests, and their were mildly stressed about it.  I put notes that said stuff like I know you are working hard and Try your best.  Then when I picked them up from school I would ask them what they learned, from the back side of the card.  They love it!!!!  They love the random facts and they collect the different cards.

They also make love notes for girlfriends, co workers, and people we admire.  I think that since I am across the country from most of my friends, I am going to get the girlfriends ones and randomly send them to my friends. They would also make interesting cards to accompany gifts or get well packages.  They have inspirational quotes on  the back and friendship love on the front. These are a great way to remind our friends why we love them and to inspire and reassure them.

Go check out there website and buy some and start speading the love to everyone you know!!

Overall Beauty Mineral Eyeshadow Review


I have always wanted to try mineral makeup, so I jumped at the chance to try Overall Beauty Mineral Makeup.  I received a four pack of eyeshadows in summer wheat, sunny,  autumn, and rose.  Autumn and summer wheat are really pretty browns that look great alone or with other shadows.  I like to layer sunny, which is a sparkly gold color, over the summer wheat.  I use the sunny as a sparkly color over all the colors actually.  The rose is a pinky color but not super pink.  It is a subtle color. 

Another really cool thing is if you are timid about trying them, you can buy a sample jar which is only $1.50.  Is that a steal or what?  Plus you can try tons of colors and then when you find your favorites, buy the larger sizes.

They also sell: hair care, bath and body, products for men, and skin care.  You could spend all day browsing their website (I don't recommend it cause it makes the hubby mad).  But you should go check them out the next time you need cosmetics!! 

And to give you even more incentives to go shopping, Here is a coupon!!  For the next 2 weeks, if you spend over $20 at Overall Beauty.com you get $2 off by entering the code KIDS2009 at checkout!  And you always get free shipping if you spend $50 or more.

Scandle Candle Review

I had you at Hello Scandle didn't I ??  You love the word Scandle, huh? Especially YOU, I know how your mind works.  Have you heard of the Scandle Candle Company?  They make these awesome candles that are made with massage oil.  Yes you read that right.  Massage + Candle= Scandle.  You light the candle and let the candle burn 15-20 minutes and then you blow out the flame (Do this before you pour oil on your husband because if you set his back hair on fire he might blame you- not that I know from personal experience or anything.  But I've heard..) and pour the oil into your hand or directly on your hubby.  If he flinches because he thinks it will be hot, you can tell him (after giving him "2 for flinching") that the oil only burns at 102', which is cooler than the water in most baths.            

I was lucky enough to receive the Scandle Essentials Travel Candle in Hummingbird.  What does a  Hummingbird smell like you ask?  I don't know but it smells amazing!!  According to the Scandle web page it is "An original fragrance of kiwi, lilac, tiger lily, with pineapples and pears."  I love it! They have 20 different fragrances to choose from like: Sex on the beach, Love Spell (thats the one you want huh?), and Cupid's wings. 

And the coolest part is if you get stuck give your Honey a massage that your hands will also get super soft.  I was amazed that the next day my hands were still soft and supple.  This is unheard of for me, I literally put lotion on every hour and to no avail. 

But what about my single readers?  Or my strong Navy wife readers who are home alone?  I have just the answer.  Scandle makes a Scandle Skin Renewing Kit  that contains 1 Dead Sea Salt Soak and Scrub and 1 4oz Travel Scandle Candle in coordinating fragrances. Our specially formulated multifunctional 2 in 1 Dead Sea Salt Soak & Scrub can be used as a bath or foot soak, as a gentle exfoliant to renew skin in the shower, or combine them with the soothing oil from the Scandle Body Candle to transform the salts into a gentle warm exfoliating salt scrub for skin. How awesome does that sound?  This would make a great Mother's day gift [hint, hint do you need my mailing address? ;)] !! 

What are you waiting for go check out there website and then leave me a comment telling me what you bought!

Product Review/ Giveaway snackTAXI

On the rare days I let my kids buy lunch, they come home hungry because they will eat corn, mashed potatoes and applesauce.  When i ask why thats all they ate, they say "I don't know."  So needless to say, I make lunches just about every day.  But as a trying to be green mom, I wonder how many thousands of ziplock bags, do I send to the landfill every year?  Then I found snackTAXIs!!  They come in 2 sizes: snack and sandwich size.  Snack size is about 6" W by 4.5"H  and sandwich size is 7.5"W by 6"H.

Both the outside fabric and waterproof inner fabric have been extensively tested and found to contain no lead or other toxins. 

I love them!!  They make them in tons (like currently 80 but new fabrics are added every month) of different prints and colors, so your can make everyone in your family happy.  Plus if everyone gets a different print you can limit bickering in your house.  The kids know which bag is their bag. 

I received the sandwich bag is this donut and coffee print and the snack bag in a dark blue with light blue dots print.  My son Jacob is 4 and only goes to school from 8 until 11:15 am so he really only gets a snack at school.  We put his half sandwich in the snack bag and it works great!!  My duaghter really wanted to use the donuts sandwich bag in her lunch but she doesn't have a traditional lunchbox.  She has a lunch bag but the sandwich bag is too wide and if we fold up the extra fabric, it takes up too much room in her lunchbag (As a note, I consider that to be one of the many problems with her lunchbag not with the snackTAXI).  However, this means that I get to use it!  I love that I can just toss it into my laptop bag and it is slim and keeps my bag mess free.  Are you ready for the good part??

Thanks to Erin @ snackTAXI, I have one Starter Kit to Giveaway!!!  This Kit includes one sandwich bag, one snack bag, and one Twice as nice napkin.

BPA-free Complete Feeding Set Review/ Giveaway

I am always looking for new baby products and lately I am also looking for natural and environmentally friendly products. I stumbled on Ecomom one day and I am in love! They carry so many great products such as: diapers; Skin care for Mom, Dad, and Baby; toys for kids aged birth to 7 years old; Baby Food (I really want to try Tyler Florence’s line of Baby Food!); and so much more!!


EcoMom also has a really cool program called EcoPass. For $99 a year, you get tons of awesome benefits like: no shipping, 15% off every purchase, advanced look at new products, and exclusive promotions and offers.

Back in 2008, I had just found out I was pregnant when the media started talking about the toxin BPA. I was kind of upset since my 18 month old used a couple different types of bottles that contained BPA. So I knew that when my baby was born, I would make sure to use BPA free products. So I was so excited when I received the Thinkbaby BPA-free Feeding Set.

I am in love with the bright orange bowls and lids. The rectangular bento box is water tight, so that if you put liquids or non-solid food (I put baby food) inside, you don’t have to worry about leaks. In the smaller cereal bowl I put little snacks like Goldfish or baby puffs and I can throw it in my purse and since it is stainless steel, I don’t have to worry about the snacks getting smashed.

At first when I saw the cup, I thought about old prison movies where the inmates rattle their tin cups against the bars!! LOL But it is an amazing design. My son Cody is 3 in October and until now would spill or make a huge mess with any cup that didn’t have a sippy lid. But he can hold the handle and he drinks very well with this cup!


But really, I love the environment and I want my kids to be healthy but I do have 5 of them so my time is short. The best thing about this set: DISHWASHER SAFE!!! Yay. If I have to hand wash something, then that is not going to get used on a regular basis.


Thanks to Jody @ Ecomom I have one BPA-free Complete Feeding Set to giveaway!! Also if you don’t win (sorry!!) you can go buy anything you want on Ecomom and save 15%!! Just use the code SBBL203 at checkout. This code is good until May 31, 2010.

The Cream Perfume Company Review/ Giveaway


How cute are these little jars of cream perfume? I was so excited to open the box and see them.  They are little so you can throw them in your purse or backback and have perfume on the go!  I received the mango, melon, and rose scents to try. 

The mango has a kind of musky scent to it that I love!  I could totally picture myself wearing it while I am out on the town.  The melon is more fruity but not overpowering.  It has a hint of the ocean in it.  I can't explain but it reminded me of dusk at the beach.  Now, normally when I think of rose scent, I think of my grandma.  She always (and probably still does,
I just don't go through her stuff anymore LOL) had makeup and skin products that smelled like roses. So when I got the rose cream perfume, I was scared it would remind me (and smell like) little old ladies.  But this scent is very light and floral and tends to make people do a double sniff.  Is that you that smells? What is it? Most people can't quite put their finger on the scent until you tell them roses, and then they have that Aha moment. 
What I love about this perfume is that it is not greasy at all.  I have tried cream perfumes in the past that leave a greasy smear on your wrist but not these.   The rub in completely just like lotion.  Speaking of lotion, I also received 3 different scented lotions to try.  I received coconut, lavendar, and rose.

My favorite is the coconut.  It makes me yearn for the beach and a huge beach party.  It is a classic summer scent.  My husband's favorite was the lavender.  He liked that it was light and more subtle.  He is not a fan of very strong scents.  My daghter keeps trying to steal the rose lotion because it is light and girly.

The lotion is nice and light and not greasy at all.  It also keeps my skin (and I literally have the dryest skin) moisturized all day.  I would recommend any of these products to anyone who likes perfume and lotions with light, natural scents!!                                   


And Mary at The Cream Perfume Company is giving not just 1 but 2 readers their choice of any product!

Nature's Baby Organics Review/ Giveaway

I love bath products but sadly most don't live up to my expectations.  So when I was given the opportunity to review Nature's Baby Organic's Baby Oil and their Ah-Choo Chest Rub, I was excited.

When I was 2 years old I was diagnosed with eczema.  I still have pretty frequent flair ups and I have discovered in the last 23 years that the only thing that really helps is to put lotion on 4-5 times a day. As far as I know, I have no food or product allergies but natral ingredients are best for me. 

Enter Nature's Baby Organic Baby Oil.  As soon as I got it, I opened it up and smelled it.  It is Mandarin Coconut scented and it smells divine!!!  I could wait (literally) to shower and use it so I poured a small amount into my hand and rubbed it onto my arms.  Imagine my surprise when it completely absorbed and was not greasy, oily, or slimy!!  Since it is made from Organic Sunflower Oil, Olive Oil and Jojoba Oil it left my skin nurished for hours!!  I usually put lotion on my hands every 2-3 hours or more depending how much hand washing I am doing.  Not with this oil!  I love not having to keep applying lotion.

I had to wait a while to use the Ah-Choo Chest Rub because unfortunately we were all healthy.  This was probably the first time ever a Mom has wanted someone to get sick.  Well this weekend I got my chance.  Mason got a cold and at night, he has a pretty bad cough and runny nose.  So before bed last night and the night before, I would nurse him and then undo his pj's and rub the Ah-Choo on his chest.  It helped him settle down and he seems to breathe easier and would just drift off to sleep very peacefully.  The website says to cover your chest with a washcloth at first to prevent the Ah-Choo from transferring to clothes. I found that if you wait just a few minutes you don't need a washcloth.
