Nite Ize Gear Ties Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I was sent some Nite Ize Gear Ties to use and review in my home.

We were able to used these around the house to wrap up cords, as a tablet stand and in other similar ways suggested to help keep ourselves organized and tidy.

I wanted to get more use out of these so sent some with my husband to the office because I knew he would get creative.

He used one here as a pen holder:

He also used another in a couple of different ways for holding a flash light.

He was really impressed with the quality and durability of these Gear Ties.

Overall, we really love these Nite Ize Gear Ties. There are an endless amount of uses and we cannot wait to find out more!

Silicon Baking Mat and Commercial Baking Sheet Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

001

I was sent a Silicon Baking Mat and Commercial Baking sheet to review.

019

I currently had old baking sheets so this was a welcomed product. Of course, the only appropriate item to test these out was chocolate chip cookies.

021

I often have issues with cookies sticking to the pan or not cooking evenly but this was not the case with my new baking mat and sheet.

As you can see, the cookies came out great and my sous chefs couldn’t agree more.

026It was so easy to take the cookies off of the baking mat. In fact, i barely had to clean it because there were just a few small smudges left over.

Baking cookies, or anything else for that matter, will never be the same again.

ATTITUDE Product Review

I was sent a package of ATTITUDE products to review with my family.

058

ATTITUDE provides baby-friendly, carcinogen-free, environmentally-preferable (just to name a  few) cleaning and care products.

We have been diligently using and loving each of these products!

att laundry

The Laundry Detergent has worked great to get our clothing clean and I love that it is “free of any chemical linked to cancer (not even traces!).” Plus it is septic safe and not tested on animals. It is currently on sale for $8.99.

att dish

The Dishwashing Liquid has been great to have on hand for those dishes I do not run through the dishwasher. I have to admit that I am a bit of a dishwashing liquid snob. I buy many of my household products in generic brands but I always purchased a specific brand name dishwashing liquid because it was the only one that worked well. I am happy to say that ATTITUDE dishwashing liquid has passed my test and really does get my dishes clean. It also has the benefits mentioned above for the laundry detergent. You can purchase it on sale for $3.99.

att toy

 

The Toy & Surface Cleaner has been one of those products I never knew I couldn’t live without. I find myself using it all the time on our toys, especially with all of the sick germs going around right now. What was I using before this?! It also is free of cancer-causing chemicals and eco-friendly. You can purchase it on sale for $6.99

att shampoo

 

The 2-in-1 Shampoo has been a great product for us. With two daughters that have lots of hair we go through a lot of shampoo. I worry about what is in our shampoos because it runs down their faces as we rinse it. I love knowing that this shampoo is vegetable based and free of harmful chemicals. You can purchase it on sale for $7.99.

att bath

The Bubble Bath is something my girls look forward to. Most natural bath products do not produce the fun bubbles that every child wants in their bath. Though this is carcinogen-free and eco-friendly it still has a nice naturally-derived fragrance. We absolutely love this product and you can get it on sale for $7.99.

att hand

The Foaming Hand Soap is another great product for the bathroom. My girls love how foamy the soap gets and I love the safe and eco-friendly ingredients. We will be sad when this runs out. You can purchase it on sale for $4.99.

att wipes

The Baby Wipes are a great product for on-the-go. I threw this into my diaper bag and have gone almost entirely through the package. Baby wipes are used on our children’s most sensitive parts and we should be conscience to what they are made of. I love that these are vegetable-based and biodegradable. You can purchase a pack on sale for $5.99.

ATTITUDE carries so many other great products which you can view here.

Overall, it has been a privilege to try out these amazing products and I know you will love them. They are safe for your family, friendly for the environment and even have fun packaging that everyone will love.

 

I was not paid to write this post. I exchanged my review for this product. These are my own opinions.

Baby Bullet Review

I was sent a Baby Bullet System to review.

Baby Bullet Collage

I have used food processors in the past for making baby food so I was excited to try out a system created for the purpose of making baby food.

It was very simple to set up right out of the box and we got right to making banana baby food. As you can see I added some yogurt as bananas are not the most liquid-y fruit.

They pureed up fast and smoothly and we were able to pour them into the individual cups and freezer tray very easily.

The Baby Bullet comes with so many great features and tools like the recipe book, spatula and more.

Kong Mega Wubba Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

EntirelyPets.com sent me a Kong Mega Wubba to review with my 2 dogs.

Kong Toy giveaway via EntirelyPets.com now through 3/04/14

I already knew of Kong as being a quality  product and was excited to try it out on my rough players. Together they have destroyed more stuffed animals and wooden toys than I care to recall. It was time for something they could not tear apart in .04 seconds.

My 2 year old Husky mix Hera has teeth that can chew through just about anything. She took right to the Kong Mega Wubba and went to town gnawing on it.

Kong Toy giveaway via EntirelyPets.com now through 3/04/14

She has punctured a couple of small holes but has not ripped it beyond that at all. I was impressed.

We then tried it out on our 3 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback mix Zeus and he had his way with it as well. He whipped it around until he could barely move anymore and still the quality was spot-on. Again, I was impressed.

Kong Toy giveaway via EntirelyPets.com now through 3/04/14

We have purchased cheap dog toys in the past but have now experienced the quality of Kong and will be loyal purchasers from here on out.

You can purchase this Kong Mega Wubba and several other Kong toys and products from EntirelyPets.com

Snuggy Baby Cloth Diaper Review

Snuggy Baby sent me one of their One Size All-In-Two Cloth Diaper Covers and Inserts to review {ARV $30}

Snuggy Baby One size cover and insert review. This cover has a very unique feature that you have to see for yourself! (giveaway ends 2/6)

The One Size Diaper Cover {$20} comes in some of the most adorable prints I have seen and has a very unique feature to it.Not only are there 4 rows of rise setting and crossover waist snaps, there are also a set of crotch and bottom snaps that work to keep the crotch of the diaper trim for our littlest babies. I have to admit that I was kind of blown away when I saw these.

Watch this video to see how these snaps work:

So, here is the diaper cover set to the smallest setting:

And, here it is set to the largest setting:

The exterior of the cover in a soft knit fabric and the interiors a waterproof PUL that is easily wipeable for reusing. The flaps are soft on babies skin and help hold the inserts into place. The backside flap also helps to hold in those #2 blowouts.

The Snuggy Baby Insert {$10} has a contour shape for maximum coverage and a perfect fit in the Snuggy Baby Diaper  Cover. It is made of 100% cotton and lined with a wicking jersey material for a stay-dry feel.

Snuggy Baby One size cover and insert review. This cover has a very unique feature that you have to see for yourself! (giveaway ends 2/6)

This insert is designed for a quick dry time and it also comes with a smaller insert that can be used alone (as a newborn insert) or snapped on (as a booster). The inserts also snap into the diaper cover to ensure it will stay in place.

I tried Snuggy Baby on my 25 lb 2.5 year old. She wore the diaper at a medium setting with the inert and booster snapped in. We were able to get a great fit and had no problems with leaking or wicking.

You can see that this diaper looks rather trim, even with the booster being used. The elastic is soft and left no red marks on her skin.

Overall, I am very impressed with our Snuggy Baby Cloth Diaper Cover and Insert and they have become a regular member of our stash.

Head over and purchase your own Snuggy Baby Diaper and Insert and check out the other great products available too!

Why I Use Molly's Suds Cloth Diaper Laundry Powder

As someone who has tried several cloth diaper detergents and soaps I have finally settled on a laundry solution that we love.

It's free of harsh chemicals, it cleans my diapers dependably and more... (plus a giveaway now through 2/7)

I use Molly’s Suds Cloth Diaper Laundry Powder exclusively.

So, why do I love it? Well, most importantly, It works. If you frequent cloth diaper communities you will, without at doubt, hear others talking about their diaper laundry and the problems they are having with it.

It's free of harsh chemicals, it cleans my diapers dependably and more... (plus a giveaway now through 2/7)

As someone who does not use a diaper sprayer and has a front-loading washing machine (yes, you read that right) , I swear by Molly’s Suds Cloth Diaper Powder. Even more, I do not add extra water or extra rinses. I simply follow the instructions on the bag and it works, every time.

So, what is my routine? Just like I mentioned, I follow the directions on the packaging exactly. First, a warm rinse, next is a hot wash with the laundry powder (I use 1.5 scoops since I have a front-loader). Important: I put my powder directly on my laundry in the machine. I do not use the soap dispenser. Next is two warm rinses. That’s it. Clean diapers every time.

Another reason I love using Molly’s Suds is because it is free of fragrances, dyes and harsh chemicals that could harm your babies skin. If you deal with diaper rash regularly, I suggest giving Molly’s Suds a try.

Check out my Molly’s Suds Ambassador bio here.
