Giving back during the Holiday Season

It's getting close to Christmas, my favorite time of the year. The season is so busy though, sometimes it is hard to sit back and remember what Christmas is really about!

As a family we do our best to give back during the Christmas season. We always participate in the Samaritan's purse shoebox. I take my kids out and let them pick out a few small toys that they think are neat and then some cute toothbrushes and other hygiene items. Then they come home and wrap it all up ina shoebox and decorate the box. The box is then sent overseas to children who do not have anything. My kids love this tradition because they really feel like they are a part of the process and truly want to make another kid happy for christmas!

We also love to go to the nursing home with a group from church and sing Christmas carols. It is so much fun and it is an awesome feeling to bring light to someone's day!

I always like to know what companies are also giving back so that I can support them. So I was happy to find out that one of my favorite shoe company (for babies), Robeez, is giving back to the community this year. Robeez is donating a pair of soft sole shoes to K.I.D.S. with every soft sole purchase through December 23rd!

So if you are looking for a pair of soft sole shoes for someone on your Christmas list this season, check out Robeez as you will be doing something good for the community as well! Here's one of my favorite shoes, the Firecracker!

Disclosure: This post was written in conjunction with the Twitter Moms and Robeez campaign.

Switch Flops Giveaway!-Closed

This summer my cousin bought her first house and I was helping her pack for the big move. As we packed up her stuff, I couldn't help but drool over the number of shoes she had in her closet. First off, my husband would kill me if I had that many. Second, we really just don't have that much room in our house. Yet here I am living in Florida with only 2 pairs of flip flops to my name and my cousin who lives up north has over 10 pairs!!! No Fair. But I have found the perfect solution...SwitchFlops!

In case you haven't heard of SwitchFlops, they are an innovative, interchangeable footwear line. Basically, they are a pair of sandals that you can change the top strap on to match different outfits! It is the perfect solution for anyone who loves to change their shoes to match their outfits but like me, lack the storage space for that many shoes!

I had the opportunity to review a pair of SwitchFlops and I was very impressed with them. The soles were extremely comfortable. I wore them the first day I got them all day long and they didn't rub. The interchangeable straps were easy to change, with just a simple velcro. They straps stay on tight and you cannot tell that they are removable when you are wearing them. And of course they are totally cute and stylish looking. I love the fact that I can now just purchase additional straps to add onto the base instead of all new shoes which are more expensive and take up lots of room. Plus when these wear out, I can purchase a new shoe but still keep all of the interchangeable straps so it is only the cost of replacing one shoe.

I highly recommend purchasing the Switchflops for any shoe lover on your Christmast list this year!

Buy one:
WHAT THEY COST: $35 for LuLu; $39 for Taylor; $49 for Lilly; $12 for each additional strap WHERE TO FIND THEM: and select boutiques nationwide

Win one: One lucky reader will win a pair of SwitchFlops!

To enter: Visit SwitchFlops and pick out your favorite SwitchFlop and strap and leave me a comment telling me what it is.

The Armed Band It (Giveaway)-Extended

A while ago I reviewed the Purse Hook-er from one of my favorite, unique companies: MyTagalongs. So I am more than happy to tell you about another one of their products that I have had the chance to review.

About two months ago my friend and I started walking a couple of times a week. Okay, maybe it was mostlyfor the sake of getting out of the house and having time to have "grown-up" talk, but we really were hoping to shed a few pounds and get in shape. Since we were new at this whole walking thing we weren't equipped with any of the new exercise apparel out there. One of the biggest problems I found is that I wanted to carry my cell phone with us but I had no place to put it since I didn't have any pockets. That's when I discovered Armed Band It.

The Armed Band it a small pouch that you wear on your arm that can hold car keys, Ipods or just about anything else. The pouch is a good size so you really could fit quite a bit in it. While we were briskly this was the perfect solution for me; however I think if you were trying to run it would be a bit bulky to wear. It has an elastic criss-cross band that makes sure that it stays on snug and doesn't slip down while you are walking.

About MyTagalongs:
MYTAGALONGS co-founders Jeannie Vondjidis and Nicole Authier interviewed over 200 women across Canada, delving into their handbags in order to understand their daily needs. The problem today is that when it comes to organizing their lives, women don't have time to shuttle from store to store to find the items that they require, explains Vondjidis, who graduated from the London School of Economics and has 20 years experience in marketing communications working on world class brands such as Disney and L´Oreal. With MYTAGALONGS, we wanted to create a destination brand that groups together fun, fashionable items that answer most of women´s real life needs.

Designed for work, travel and every day life, MYTAGALONGS accessories help women to be prepared for anything that life might throw at them. Presented as individual items, mini-kits and kits, these accessories can tackle most situations from an unraveled hem and a crushed tampon, to packing strategically.

Win it:
One lucky reader will win an Armed Band it of their own!

To enter: Visit MyTagalongs then come back and tell me what your favorite product is from their site (other than the Armed Band it)

Fit and Fold Giveaway

I used to get so frustrated trying to fold my fitted sheets. I would fold it and refold it, and it still never looked good. So then....I gave up. Really. I pretty much make one quick attempt and whatever it looks like is how it stays. So I was more than interested when I heard about this new, innovative solution called Fit and Fold which consists of 4 button-like snaps.

About Fit and Fold
Fit & Fold's four handy snaps attach to the corners of any fitted sheet, making it an instant snap to get a fitted sheet on a mattress correctly the first time, every time. In addition, Fit & Fold makes it simple to fold a fitted sheet-- so simple that one person can do it in just seconds. Available in a variety of colors to compliment linens, the snaps stay attached in the washer and dryer and are designed to not rip or tear the sheet.

My experience with Fit and Fold
The first time I put the Fit and Fold snaps on my sheets I was a bit skeptical. Okay, maybe I'm a little slow but it took me about 10 minutes to read the directions and figure out what I was doing. But the good news is that once they are on, they stay on. You wash the sheets with the buttons on. So this is a one-time installation process. Yeah! The buttons definitely made it easy to fold my sheets and make them look good.

Once the buttons were on the sheet I was ready to see if it was really going to work. And I have to say: YES!!! My sheet folded up nice and flat and the corners were square instead of round. The first attempt was pretty good but still a little uneven. The second time I did it the sheet was folded perfect. It was an awesome feeling. Now my linen closet looks so much better and I seem to have extra room because the sheets are folded so flat.

But to be honest, I thought my favorite part about this was that my sheets were going to be folded neater. But what I really liked about the Fit and Fold is that the buttons are actually labeled which one is the top left, top right, bottom left or bottom right. So it makes it easy to put the sheets on the first time. Usually I have to turn the sheets a couple of times before I get it right.

Win it: One lucky winner will win a Fit and Fold.

Anytime Costumes Giveaway!

Halloween is fast approaching, and it's time to pick out costumes! I am not a fan of the scary, gruesome Halloween costumes that you see everywhere. I prefer the fun, play-oriented outfits so I was excited when I found a company called Anytime Costumes. They have all types of costumes for everyone in the family. They have infants, toddlers, kids, adults & plus size costumes. They even have costumes for your family pet :) They also have hats, wigs, and all other types of accessories you might need for Halloween. If you are looking for something specific, chances are you will find it here.

I had the opportunity to review the Child dress-up set for boys. It comes with a pair of pants & shirt and accessories to make it into 3 outfits: a pirate, indian or Peter Pan! I was impressed with the creative designs of the outfits and how easily it could be changed to look like any of the three characters. What's so awesome about this is my son can be a cowboy for Halloween and then use the rest of the outfits just to play dress up in.

I was very pleased with how quickly Anytime Costumes ships. They actually ship 95% of the orders received by 2:00 pm Eastern time the same business day! They have great customer service (if you are looking for an outift and they don't have it, they will work with you to try to find it through their vendors!) and are their site is easy to navigate through to find the costume you are looking for. They have so many different outfits to choose from with reasonable prices.

If you order now, you can get free ground shipping on orders of $45 or more when you use code: SEPT9B

Win it:
One lucky reader will win a Infant, Toddler, Child or Teen costume of their choice.

Great science experiment for kids

Recently I was inspired by a fellow homeschool mom who does the coolest science experiments ever with her kids. I'm really not good at science, but she makes everything so fun even I think science is easy to learn this way.

Anyway, we did an egg experiment that was super fun today. You take a hardboiled egg and a glass or plastic jar that has an opening just smaller than the egg. Put the bottle in hot water for five minutes and then quickly put it in a bowl of ice water. Place the egg on top of the bottle and watch it slowly suck the egg in, whole. It is so cool to watch. And then to get the egg out, you simply blow hard into the bottle with your mouth around the opening. Make sure you don't point it at your kids because when you stop blowing and point it, the egg will come flying out.

We had so much fun doing this experiment today. We did have to do it twice because the first time I used too small of a bottle and it litterally sucked it in piece by piece, destroying the egg. Here's the scientific explanation behind it from the kids National Geographic website:

Hot air expands. Cold air contracts. When the air inside the bottle is heated, the molecules, or tiny air particles, inside the bottle spread out, increasing air pressure. As the air in the bottle cools, the air pressure decreases. The greater outside air pressure pushes the egg into the bottle. Blowing into the bottle raises the air pressure again. The air and the egg rush out of the bottle.

Let your Love Be Felt (Giveaway)

Whenever we have storytime my 4 year old sits so nicely and listens. My two year old sits for about two minutes and then starts doing summersaults and bounces around the room. So it is hard to work with both of them at the same time. When I found Story Time Felts I was excited because it is a felt board with pieces so you can visually create the story right in front of you while you are reading, or even independently from reading. Which means no more just sitting through the stories. The kids now become an active part of the story.

I received "The Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly" to review. We had such a fun time with this. Each kid got to choose a few felt animals and then we would sing the song. When we would get to the animal, whoever was holding the animal got to (literally) stick the animal in the lady's mouth. I was amazed at how much fun they had with something so simple. And I have to admit there are a few days where I have actually hidden the felts so they wouldn't find it and ask for it. You can only sing that song so many times a day before you go crazy!!

But I really love the concept behind Story Time Felts. There are no batteries. It makes no noise. It gives your children freedom to use their imagination freely and create their own stories. There is a wide variety of different products available including board stories and dress-ups.

My favorite product, as a homeschool mom, is the educational toggles. All toggles include a Toggle Book Bag, book, figures, lessons, worksheets and activities. They help with basic reading concepts, color matching, elementary math skills & shape recognition. It is such a great way to make learning fun.

Win It:
One lucky winner will win "The Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly"

How to save money on clothes & Gap outlet coupon!

Saving money on kids clothes under 5...

I have to admit that both of my children's closets are overflowing with clothes. I love shopping for clothes for them, but I never pay full price for anything. I'm always looking for a great bargain but still keeping them stylish. I have a couple of ways that I use to save money on clothes:
-At the end of every season I shop the clearance rack for approximately two sizes larger than my children currently are. I can usually score things 70-90% off and then put them away for my children. The trick is trying to guess what their size will be then. Most of them time I've been right on, but the few outfits that I have estimated wrong on, I simply sold on ebay. And because I had gotten them so cheap I have always made my money back, sometimes I have even made money!!
-I always combine coupons with current sales. For instance if I am a card holder or they are having a special sale where you get an additional $10 off $50 or something similar then I shop. Because when you combine that with the already existing sales of 50-75% off, you do much better.

Every time we go shopping, my daughter who is four picks up clothing and asks if she can buy it. If it isn't on sale, we don't even consider it. So, now she is in the habit that when she picks up a piece of clothing she asks the sales attendent if it is "on sale." We're passing on the frugal habits already!!!

One store that I have consistently found some good bargains at is Gap Outlet. They seem to be able to keep up with the current stylish and yet be affordable. They also have a pretty good clearance rack if you can manage to hit it at the right time. Right now they are having their Gap Outlet Semi-Annual Baby Sale for newborns to 5 year olds taking place September 11-24, 2009.They have offered all of my readers a special 10% off discount. Unfortunately it doesn't work with clearance items, but you still should be able to combine it with current sales to get a great deal.

Go ahead and start shopping and tell me about all of the deals you get!
Thanks to Twitter Moms for the opportunity to share this discount with you!

Snug as a Bug Review & Giveaway!

We just returned home from our trip to Colorado, and unlike here in Florida, Colorado was actually pretty cool in the evenings. I actually had to pack jackets for my kids!! Just two weeks before I had received a Snug as a Bug reflective jacket to review, so I figured this was the perfect opportunity to take it for a test drive.

The Snug as a Bug reflective jacket features a full zipper, hood, hand warmer pockets and an extended back length for extra warmth. My favorite feature was the hood. It covered more of my daughter's neck than any other jacket she's ever had. I could see where they got the name "snug as a bug" because she was snuggled up really well in this jacket. The hood blocked the wind from coming in and making her cold. Also, it has reflective piping sewn into it that creates an intense white glow when hit by light which meant that I knew she would be safe at nightime as well as warm. Overall the jacket was made of high quality Canadian-made polar fleece in a beautiful color with plenty of warmth. And because it is an oversize style it should last my daughter for a few years.

In addition to the reflective jacket, Snug as a Bug also has refective helmet covers that are absolutely adorable! They are so stylish and yet very practical. They have the same reflective piping so that they can be seen. I know it is early to start talking about Christmas, but as many of you know I just love matching Christmas pajamas and Snug as a Bug has a large array of them to choose from. With the holidays coming up, this is a great idea to keep in mind!

Snug as a Bug, a Canadian based company was founded byLiz Heyland who was working a a women’s wear designer, when she found herself starved for brighter colours and itching to be her own boss. So, in 1992 she struck out on her own to launch Snug As A Bug, her own line of quality children’s clothing and accessories. After 17 years, the Snug As A Bug brand is still designed solely by Liz, and is still manufactured locally in Canada by highly skilled seamstresses enforcing a strict quality control while supporting the local community.

One lucky winner will win a reflective jacket from Snug as a Bug; retail value $44.95

One Hour Parties

I just love parties. Attending them that is :) Actually, I really do love planning them as well, but there are some times when life is so busy that it is just overwhelming. And for those times, there is a great company called "One Hour Parties."

One Hour Parties is a Quick, Creative and Affordable answer to all of your party needs from Corporate to Weddings. The really cool feature that they offer (and what I would probably like most on a busy day) is that you can actually rent staff to come and help you with set up and clean up!

If you are one of those people reading this saying, why would I ever pay someone to do this...planning parties is so much fun, then maybe you should consider making money doing what you love. One Hour Parties is the most exciting and fun franchise concept on the market today. They provide easy, creative and affordable party planning solutions for corporate celebrations, kid's parties, weddings and more. The company has just been named Entrepreneur Magazine’s “Hot New Franchise” and the founders were just named the “Top 25 Innovators and Entrepreneurs” by Seattle Business Magazine. For more franchise information, click here.
I found out about this from Twitter Moms this morning!

Yoplait Fiber One Review & Giveaway

Three Lucky readers will each win a Fiber One Gift Bag which will include: a Fiber One yogurt VIP coupon (good for a free 4-pack of Fiber One yogurt), cooler pack, and other storage items for you to carry your snacks and yogurt!!

I eat yogurt everyday, so I was intrigued when I foundout that the new Fiber One is the only leading nonfat yogurt with 50 calories and 5 grams of fiber (20 percent of the Recommended Daily Value).

There are four flavors: Strawberry, Peach, Vanilla, and Key Lime. Thanks to Blog Spark, I received a coupon to try one free flavor and I chose the Key Lime Pie. I thought it was absolutely delicious. I usually eat vanilla yogurt so I was a little hesitant about trying the "fun" flavors but found out that I really liked it, especially for an afternoon snack. It tasted very creamy and actually really like key lime pie.

Want to see for yourself? Here's a $1 off coupon!

Win it: Three lucky readers will win a "Healthy & Fit Weight Management" gift bag that includes a Fiber One yogurt VIP coupon (good for a free 4-pack of Fiber One yogurt), lunch bag with compartments, a plastic meal container, two utensils that contain a spoon, fork, and knife in one, a plastic cup with a lid.

Nature Valley Granola Nut Cluster Review

I recently had the opportunity, through Blog Spark and Nature Valley, to try out the new Nature Valley Nut Clusters. I like peanuts a lot, but since my father is the ultimate peanut lover I recruited his help in testing them out!

New Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters are bite size 100% natural clusters of nuts, granola and a touch of honey. They come in four tasty flavors; Nut Lovers, Roasted Almond, Roasted Cashew and Honey Roasted Peanut.

Both my dad and I tried them all and liked them all. I think our favorite was probably the Nut Lovers. I liked the fact that they were bite-sized and easy to eat. They were very flavorful. Unfortunately, if you don't have any self control it's easy to eat the whole bag in one sitting.

I know my dad must have really liked them because yesterday when I was at his house I noticed that he had bought some more for himself!

Nature Valley Nut Clusters can be purchased at most grocery stores (mine is Publix and they carry them).

Disclosure: I received one bag of each of the four flavors from Blog Spark.

Olive Kids Review & Giveaway

I'm super excited about this awesome giveaway from Olive Kids!

One lucky reader will win a prize package from Olive Kids consisting of: a name tag, book mark, placemat & a set of book mark plates!! Winner gets to choose the designs of each product.

My daughter is just learning to read and she gets so excited whenever she sees her name in print. She always goes through all the mail frantically looking for a piece of mail with her name on it...that's why I know that anything I buy her with her name on it will be an absolute hit. And I have found a company that has some of the cutest products most of which can be personalized.

Olive Kids has a huge selection of products: kids bedding, drawer nobs and pulls (these are so adorable), growth charts, magnets, rubs, placemats, bookmarks, clocks, wall art and more. What I really love about Olive Kids is the fact that it is an affordable alternative to all of the TV character themes. All of their designs are classic kid themes like pirates, butterflies, outer space, mermaids, cowboys, etc. They allow the kids to have a little more imagination instead of being inundated with TV themes. And they have the same designs in all of the different product lines so you can continue the theme even into the bathroom.

I had the opportunity to review a nametag & placemat for Olive Kids. We are getting ready to go on vacation so I gave my daughter the nametag and showed her that she could put it on her backpack. She thought that was so cool. She absolutely loved the design and kept asking me how I got her name on it! And the plastic is pretty thick so I am not worried that it will fall off as we travel all through the airport.

The placemats were much larger than I expected which is absolutely wonderful because it actually covers the area my kids are eating on. I have used other placemats that didn't wipe off as easily; these placemats were very easy to wipe off. The designs on it just makes the table and mealtime a little more fun. And if you want, they now have sets where you can buy the personalized placemat and the matching personalized plate!

Olive Kids has also recently just released a personalized "readers kit" which would be a great gift for a birthday party. It has a personalized bookmark, a personalized book bag name tag, and 12 personalized book plates!

Win it: One lucky reader will win a prize package from Olive Kids consisting of: a name tag, book mark, placemat & a set of book mark plates!! Winner gets to choose the designs of each product.

Visit Olive Kids and look around. Come back and tell me what your favorite personalized product is.

Piggy Paint Review & Giveaway

My daughter loves to do her nails. Sometimes she even does mine (and she usually paints my fingers too!!) Other than worrying about getting nail polish on my floor, I've really never thought much about letting her do her nails. The smell of the nail polish always bothered me, but I never really stopped to think about all of the harsh chemicals that go into nail polish...And then along came Piggy Paint.

I received a sample of Piggy paint and polish remover. The nail polish was a vibrant, shiny color and looked similar to any other nail polish. The difference is in the fact that it is "natural as mud" and has no toxic chemicals in it. My daughter was very excited to try this out. The polish dried pretty quickly and lasted for a couple of days. The remover also worked well and took the nail polish off very easily.

Piggy Paint's website is very user friendly. And they have some great ideas on ways to use their paint as a learning tool for your kids. They recommend using it to enhance your child's motor skills, learn their colors and possibly even learn about patterns (by alternating nail polish colors). So it is good for the environment, good for you child and educational at the same time! My daughter gives Piggy Paint a two thumbs up and I agree!

About Piggy Paint:
Piggy Paint is Non-toxic, odorless and kid-friendly, designed especially for little girls. Piggy Paint™ is specially formulated from God’s natural ingredients and dries to a hard, durable finish. There are no toxic chemicals; it’s free of formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, biphenyl A, ethyl acetate and acetone.

Buy It!
Use the Code LUVIT15L (expires 10/15/09) to get 15% off anything from Piggy Paint, including sale items! Spend $25 or more and get free domestic shipping!
