Dream Team Pets Dsicount For My Readers




Dream Team Pets is much more than a bedtime toy-it's an innovative kid's sleep aid that helps end the bedtime battles of trying to keep your child in bed. Developed with the help of a pediatrician, Dream Team Pets bedtime routine empowers kids as they reward their Pet with stickers and a certificate for a good night's sleep. If the child wakes up from a nightmare, there are no hard feelings because the responsibility is on their Pet, but when they successfully sleep in their own bed, the kids feel a sense of accomplishment as they reward their Dream Team Pet. What makes this unique is that the kids think they are training their Pet, but really they are sleep training themselves! My Readers receive 30% Off Dream Team Pets with Promo Code: USFGUIDE

Eco at Heart Stainless Steel Drinking Straws Review #ecoatheart




I know that I cannot be the only one that has an obsession with straws. In fact, I really know that I am not the only one because my children love straws. Especially the straws that are reusable and plastic. My kids seem to think that they are in my cup for them to chew on and flatten out.

In comes Eco at Heart. Their stainless steel drinking straws prevent the chewed up straw! They are also eco friendly and reusable. Quick, friends are coming over and you offer them a drink. Grab an eco straw and wow them with something new, unusual, and pretty darn cool too.

Each straw is made of stainless steel. That means that they are easy to clean and can be run right through the dishwasher like your standard silverware. I found it was just as easy to run them through hot soapy water to clean them out.

This is a great way to stop tossing straws into the garbage and an even better way to keep your children from chewing on your straws.  On a more serious note, they would make a great gift for anyone that you know. They are quick and easy to use and will always be around when you need a straw for anyone in your household.

Make Your Dishes Sparkle Cascade Platinum Giveaway Two #DDDivas #CascadeShiningReviews #sponsored

This review was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Cascade. I was provided the featured product free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% mine.
 Recently I was asked to host a get together with friends and family to test and show off the effectiveness of Cascade Platinum. There is no better excuse to have friends and family over other than to dirty some dishes with good food.



I have always believed if the dishes fit in the dishwasher, they will get clean. Unfortunately, experience has taught me different. I just need to know not to block the water jets with big bowls or cups and everything seems to come out okay. 

As my friends arrived, I managed to keep all of my dirty little secrets and dishes, to myself. While everyone was enjoying their brownies, I tossed the dirty dishes in the dishwasher and washed the dishes. I removed all large pieces of food, but did not pre-rinse.


  Enchiladas and brownies be gone! Can you see me waving my magic wand? 


 Yes, that is the same pan! Look how clean it came. Not even a hint of a brown crumb! My guests were all amazed that it could look so clean with scrubbing it first. That is more than an "okay clean." My dish sparkles!

Uncorked Ventures Review #Uncorked

Wine, wine, wine  and more wine. 

Do I have your attention yet? For all of those out there that enjoy a nice glass of wine at dinner, or those that knows that person, this is for you. Uncorked Ventures Wine Club has it all. You can find the mid range or even the higher end special selections in both red and white wines.

Uncorked Ventures offers several wine clubs.
The Explorations membership (the one that I received) costs $40 per shipment. Each Club Membership Includes:
2 bottles of wine - 1 red and 1 white
Discounts on re-orders  
The best quality wine club under $100  
Monthly newsletter detailing featured wines, wineries & winemakers  
10% off all purchases from the Uncorked Ventures online store  
First dibs on all last call wines, before they are offered to the public

If you want a higher end club, there are also a Special selections Wine Club at $95 per shipment and the Reserve Selections at $195 per shipment.  



Why? Oh because you can! There was nothing better than coming home from a long day at work and finding a box on my front porch. It got better and better as I opened the box and examined the contents. Two bottles of California white wine. Each bottle safely tucked in a special shipping box made just for them.


With each bottle was a nice story about the winery that produced the wine and a little information about the wine itself. Now being a Silicon Valley brat myself, I was more than excited to see a Calaveras County Wine. For those of you that have never heard of or been to Calaveras County. It is the home of the Frog Jump. Oh the memories this one bottle of wine managed to pull out of the cobwebs in my head. But don't fret, I managed to pop the top on the bottle of Semillon and enjoy the memories and the wine. 

If you are ever looking for a great gift for someone special in your life or you love to drink wine and are never really sure what to buy, Uncorked Ventures is a great way to go.

Argan Oil Hair Mask #InstaNatural





How is your hair? Is your hair in need of additional hydration from all of the chemical and heat damage that you put it through? I was recently given an opportunity to try Argan Oil Hair Mask by InstaNatural.
The key ingredients in the hair mask are;  Argan Oil, Amino Acid Complex, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, and Vitamin B5. Nothing that you cannot pronounce and all organic.

With chemically treated hair and daily heat styling my hair was limp and brittle. After just one use of the Argan Oil hair mask, my hair felt light and soft and was clearly shiny. 

The real test was allowing my daughter to try the hair mask. Her hair sometimes appears to have been run through the dryer on the "Frizz" cycle. She also loves to color her hair but is incredibly indecisive when it comes to keeping a color. Change. Change. Change. After one use, her hair came out shiny and a lot less frizzy. Did it feel soft to me? Definately!

If you are in need of a quick repair more often than not, this is a product well worth trying.

Silicone Cupcake Liners by Galley Essentials #bestsiliconebakingcups



When it comes to baking in my home there is always something missing. Whether that missing item is flour or cupcake liners, I promise I will have to make a run to the store to pick something up. I recently had the opportunity to test out Silicone cupcake molds from Galley Essentials

.




Not only did the silicone cupcake molds save me from having to run to the store, but they put a BIG smile on my kids faces.

The cupcake liners are easy to use and just as easy to clean! The bright colors are appealing to all ages and brighten up a table for guests.

My kids thought that the liners were fun to run around the house with, but they were both willing to give them up so I could start the next batch of cupcakes. I did find that if you are making cupcakes from a box, it would be better to buy two sets. 12 liners is not quite enough for a boxed cake mix. They are well worth the cost and would make a great gift for any baker you may know.
