Wellements Organic Baby Medicines

Posted on April 30, 2019 in 2019 Summer Gift Guide kids Reviews

I love Wellements Organics, and have been using it for years.  My little one used to use the Gripe Water.  Whenever he was fussing, we would give it to him.  Now that he’s a little older, I have passing these products on to some new parents.  Their impression is just as strong as mine.  Wellements Organics works wonders for your child.  All products were new in box, when handed to the new parents.

The Wellements Organic Gripe Water is so fabulous, and it’s for new babies.  When they are fussy, just give them a 1/2 teaspoon, and you’ll see the difference.  We used to put it in our son’s bottle.  He’s suck that bottle down, and he was then pleasant.

There’s  Nighttime Formula of the Gripe Water also.  It’s really effective, when used properly.

Wellements makes an Organic Baby Chest & Foot Rub, that’s perfect for any little guy/girl, with a cold.  There’s no menthol is this rub, so it’s safe, along with Non GMO.  We loved this for Jacob, as well.  And, I’m sure the parents we are passing it to, will love it just as much. What makes this product so wonderful are the scents of eucalyptus and lavender oils.

The Wellements Baby Cough & Mucus Syrup is wonderful, as well.  It makes the mucus lessen in just hours.  We loved this product, when our son was 4+ months.

There is also a nighttime formula.

Oh, but my favorite is Baby Move.  It promotes healthy bowel movements.  We loved this, when Jacob couldn’t go potty.

Wellements has a Baby Tooth Oil, that works wonders.  It’s got a soft scent, and doesn’t use those harsh chemicals.  You will love this formula.

Wellements All Purpose Balm is another fantastic product, and the happy, new parents really love this product most.  They love that it soothes their young one, and it’s good from head to toe.

To learn more about the above Organic, Wellements products, and many others, please go to their site.  It’s listed above and below, for your convenience.

Welch’s Fruit Snacks, For Easter, Make a Great Snack!

Posted on March 27, 2019 in 2019 Easter Gift Guide kids Reviews

Yesterday was my son’s Annual Spring Party, at School.  I used Welch’s Fruit Snacks, for Easter, as a snack.  They went over great.  The kids all loved them.  With 28 treats in every box, we had enough for the entire class.  We had so much fun, checking out the figures, and flavors.  We even made a game out of it.  You know, who had the most bunnies, or chicks, or reds, or oranges?  It was a snack.  These children are in Second Grade, and so smart!  And, they know what’s good for them!

Welch’s are great for any age though, I even caught my 21 year old trying to steal her brother’s snacks.  It was a hoot.  She loves Welch’s too.

KEY PRODUCT FEATURES:

   * Made with REAL fruit
   * Fruit is our first ingredient
   * Gluten-free
   * No preservatives
   * Fat-free

Welch’s® Mixed Fruit Easter Fruit Snacks are available online at Target.com[2] as well as in-store at Walmart, Target, Walgreens, and other local retailers.

I’ve already gone to Target, and restocked my shelf, with Welch’s Easter Snacks, before they are all sold out.  They are so yummy, and taste just like real fruit, which is the first ingredient.  They won’t last in my house!  Especially sending them in my child’s lunch, and my college student’s lunch, as well.

So, make sure you run out to Target, and buy yours before they are gone.  You can also order them online, at Target.com.

Plus, these Welch’s would be perfect for those Easter Egg Hunts!

It’s Not Hansel And Gretel Children’s Book

Posted on February 27, 2019 in 2019 Easter Gift Guide kids Reviews

I love reading It’s Not Hansel and Gretel, to my 7 year old.  I love that the ending is happy, and it’s a “Happily Ever After” moment.  I never would’ve thought when I started to read the book, for the first time, that it would be a happy ending, because of “Hansel And Gretel” in the title.  But, it’s not your average Hansel and Gretel story.  It’s much more, and fun to read.

Josh Funk had a great idea, when writing this book, that is now sold on Amazon.  It’s truly a masterpiece.  Josh takes books, and does his own twist with them.  Check out his site, and follow him on Twitter @joshfunkbooks.  You’ll find some more truly amazing books, along with It’s Not Hansel And Gretel.

The Illustrations are fantastic!  Edwardian Taylor did a wonderful job.  I love how colorful, and meaningful they are.

It’s Not Hansel And Gretel will take your young child’s mind off of those video games, and school work, even if just for 10 minutes.  They will feel so happy, at least my son does, after reading such a wonderful book.

Jacob is in second grade, and sometimes, the weight of school gets to him.  I’ll tell him to stop, and we’ll read this book.  For 5 – 10 minutes, he’s so into this, and isn’t worried about the weight of school.  He’s a good student, but sometimes their assignments are hard.  This eases his mind.

I will have a contest posted tomorrow, for your own copy of this book.  Stay tuned.

Get Ready To Sparkle This Summer

Posted on February 17, 2019 in 2019 Summer Gift Guide kids Reviews women

Spring, and Summer, are just around the corner.  And, I love the new line of Sparkly Sun Screen Lotion from Sunshine And Glitter.  I’ve never felt pretty.  My 21 year old, daughter, loves it too.  She took a bottle for herself.  This stuff is magnificent.  I will continue to use it, until I die.  Even though it’s too cold in Pennsylvania to go outside with it on, I’ve tried it, and it leaves me feeling so silky, and ready for a tan.

I gifted a bottle, to a friend, for her little girl, and she said that she won’t let her wipe it off.  Every time she bathes her, she wants more on.  I love it too, especially the Beach Gypsy SPF 30+.  The Beach Gypsy leaves you all glittery, and makes you feel so silky smooth.

I can’t wait to go to Lake Erie, this Summer, and wear these at Presque Isle.  I’ll be so shimmering, and fancy.  My daughter says she can’t wait either.  We will be the cutest ones there.

Sunshine and Glitter (Beach Gypsy) is Water Resistant, up to 80 Minutes, UVA/UVB Protection is important, as well, and they provide it.  It’s also Eco-Friendly, biodegradable glitter, and NO PABA, parabens, or pthlalates are included in this formula.

The kids’ formulas are SPF 50+, Water Resistant for up to 80 Minutes, Non-nano Zinc Oxide, Reef Safe, and No Animal Testing.  You can get some really good scents too, including Cotton Candy, and other scents.  Take a look at the shop to see more.

Remember they have Sun Screen Lotion, with SPF for children, and adults.  Including the Boho Beach, which is a mineral shimmer sunscreen.  Check them out, at the link above or below.

Sparkling Ice is all new

Posted on February 6, 2019 in 2019 Valentine's Day Gift Guide kids Reviews women

Sparkling Ice has a new formula, featuring naturally sourced colors and flavors, in addition to an updated logo and packaging design.  My son loves Sparkling Ice, and now he loves it more, with the naturally sourced colors, and flavors.  He says it tastes great!  My 21 year old, daughter, loves the taste as well.  They fight over who gets to drink the last bottle all the time.  I can’t keep Sparkling Ice in the house.  And, they love all the flavors, not one more than another.

Over the course of two years, Sparkling Ice conducted extensive marketing research and sensory testing with over 8000 consumers. This consumer driven project resulted in Sparkling Ice updating their flavorful, zero sugar sparkling water to now include colors from natural sources. With this new formulation, Sparkling Ice is proud to be one of the first brands to successfully transition to natural colors while maintaining the vibrant look and long shelf life that Sparkling Ice is known for.

You will love Sparkling Ice, whether you’ve had it before or not.  It tastes great.  My favorite flavor is the Sparkling Black Raspberry.  It’s delicious.  Jacob, and Sarah, will drink any of the flavors, as will I, but we each have a favorite.  And, you get 17 fluid ounces per bottle.  That’s a fantastic drink!

Sparkling Ice launched a new “Sparkling IceMaker” voice skill with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa to provide consumers with Sparkling Ice cocktail and mocktail recipes to make in the comfort of their own home. Consumers can quickly engage with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant by sharing which Sparkling Ice flavor and spirit they currently have on hand to access a variety of different recipes on behalf of the brand.

About Sparkling Ice Beverages

Available in sixteen fizzy, fruity flavors, including: Black Raspberry, Orange Mango, Pink Grapefruit, Kiwi Strawberry, Coconut Pineapple, Pomegranate Blueberry, Peach Nectarine, Lemon Lime, Crisp Apple, Classic Lemonade, Strawberry Lemonade, Cherry Limeade, Strawberry Watermelon, Black Cherry, Grape Raspberry, and Ginger Lime.

Package From Santa is the Perfect Gift for Any Boy or Girl

Posted on November 28, 2018 in kids Reviews US Family Guide

We love Package From Santa.  This is the second year that we’ve used them.  My 7 year old, Jacob, really loves receiving this kit, all the way from the North Pole.  Santa is alive and well, when you receive this kit.

We received a Nice List Letter, a Christmas Countdown Calendar, a Santa’s flight plan, etc.  Jacob went nuts when he received this package.

There’s even a nicer package, that comes with a whole lot more, including reindeer food, hot cocoa, a candy cane, and more.  You just have to pick the kit that fits your needs.

We even get a phone call from Santa, along with a video, showing Jacob on the nice list.  This really is a fabulous kit.

If you order through US Family Guide, you will receive a 25% discount on your purchase.  This really makes it a great deal.  It’s a great deal without the 25% discount, because my child still believes, and that’s what really matters.

When Jacob got Santa’s Flight Plan, he went crazy.  Your family will love it too.  It was such a treat to see that little face light up.  And, I’m sure he went to school, and told all of his friends that he made the Nice List.  These are priceless memories, that will last a lifetime.

I still have last year’s Nice List letter, and I’ll save them for Jacob, so when he grows up, he will be able to look back on these wonderful memories.

Just Add Color for Any Birthday Party

Posted on November 28, 2018 in kids Reviews US Family Guide

My 7 year old, Jacob, loved his Just Add Color kit, we received.  He had a blast with his 21 year old, sister, and her boyfriend, along with a few of his cousins.  It was so much fun watching them play.  We haven’t had a party like this in a while.  Though it wasn’t Jacob’s birthday, we had a blast.  With his cousin’s birthday being in December, this was a whole lot of fun for all the kids.

Just Add Color is a premium kit, with lots of color fun, and through US Family Guide, you can get the kit for such an excellent price.   You can get 3 bags of color, 3 bottles, to put the colors in, and more.  Check it out on their website.  This is one fun time.

Being from Pennsylvania, it was a little hard to find the right day to get out and have fun.  We did get a sort of warm, but cool, day, with no rain.  So, we took advantage of it.  You can use Just Add Color in so many places.  Jacob painted himself, and Sarah made a picture on the porch, which the snow later dissolved.

This was such a fun day, and the kids, and I, will remember it for a lifetime.  Sarah wanted to wear a white shirt, but it was so chilly out, that we had to wear jackets, but this would’ve been a great idea, had it been a beautiful day.  This is a day that these kids won’t forget!

Just Add Color Party, a US-based company, was established to help you create beautiful and memorable color experiences at your outdoor parties with the people you love.

Dead Soxy has Dead Gorgeous No Show Socks

Posted on July 27, 2018 in 2018 Back To School Gift Guide kids Reviews women

We love Dead Soxy, in our home.  The socks are magnificent, and long lasting.  I’ve washed them at least a dozen times, and they are still form fitting.  They last and last.  I can’t get over how well they are maintained.

My 7 year old now won’t wear anything but Dead Soxy.  He loves his no shows, can’t stand socks that go up to his knees.  Good thing that Dead Soxy can handle his feet.  With school starting back up, these are the perfect socks for Gym Class, or everyday class.

My daughter is in her 3rd year of college, and she loves Dead Soxy, as well.  She just snatched my last two pairs up yesterday.  She says they are so comfortable, and wash up well.

Wanna hear something great?  If you live in the USA, you can get FREE SHIPPING on your socks.  And, the no shows are 3 for $35.  That’s an amazing price.  We buy them all the time, because even the local store doesn’t have that great of a deal.

Some Fun Facts about Dead Soxy:

They are no slip:  You will not fall when you are wearing them.

They are no Shrink:  Seriously though, they will not shrink, I can attest to that!

No Fade:  They hold their color, like I’ve never seen before.

They are Versatile:  You can wear them with any shoes.

Lastly, they are Comfortable:  If they weren’t, I wouldn’t own so many.

Bug Lab For Kids

Posted on June 27, 2018 in 2018 Summer Fun Gift Guide kids Reviews

Bug Lab For Kids is a great collection of loads of fun activities for kids.  My son, age 7, loves this book.  He is so taken by it.  He loves to work on the labs, together.  You can collect and interact with bugs the right way, with this book.

The Bug Lab For Kids has taught the two of us so much.  From how to catch bugs, to how to pin them.  It’s a family-friendly activity book, and gives us something to do together.  He’s so into the electronics, so when I get home from work, I take him outside, and we work on catching some bugs.  He always takes the book with him.  Hopefully he will remember these activities when he gets older, so he an do them with his kids.

Prepare to cozy up with spiders, centipedes, butterflies, and bees, to name just a few! In Bug Lab for Kids, Mississippi State University associate professor, extension entomologist (bug expert), and educator John W. Guyton shares his knowledge and excitement about all things beautiful, creepy, and crawly. Every chapter is bursting with photos, illustrations, fascinating facts and fun activities–including experiments, hunt-and-catch and citizen science assignments, and arts and crafts projects–that teach kids about bugs’ physical characteristics, behavior, and how they affect agriculture, health, and water quality. Bug Lab for Kids also includes helpful sidebars that explain how to safely handle common insects, and how to easily identify bugs that shouldn’t be held, pet, or touched. Get kids excited about science and the outdoors with Bug Lab for Kids!
