Costume review

My household is full of Scooby Doo lovers. So when I had an opportunity to review a costume from Anytime Costumes, I had to pick Daphne.

When the costume arrived it was time to play dress up! I opened the package and was actually surprised to see that the dress was made of a velvet like material. Usually the costumes that I buy are a light weight nylon fabric that are too thin for the cold weather that we have here in the Northwest.This is a much better fabric for the cooler temperatures.
The costume came with several pieces. The main piece was the dress in a typical Daphne pink. The kit also contained an orange wig, pink boot covers, and a green scarf made of light netting.

The costume came to me with a small tear in the side. I let company know immediately and they sent a new costume out the same day. Now this would not work well if I was ordering the costume with no time to spare. I would truly need a replacement right away. But, the company worked quickly and effciently at replacing the damaged item to ensure that I could have an undamaged item.

With Halloween just around the corner, my family will need costumes. This is a great way to buy affordable costumes and get great customer service at the same time. My only advice would be to order with plenty of time to allow for exchanges just in case an item does not fit properly.

Toe Juice Review

I received my Toe Juice about a week ago. I have been testing it out ever since. Toe Juice is an alcohol based liquid that was originally designed to help dry cracking feet. So that is where I started.

First, I found that trying to use the product in a liquid form required using a cotton ball or cotton pad otherwise it is too thin to apply. I have been applying this to my feet and my husbands feet twice a day now and have noticed some results. Well, on my husbands feet anyway. He was the one with the dry cracked heels (ick). With minor visible results on my husband after close to a week, I imaginably that if we continue to use this product, his problem may subside reasonably.

I started using Toe Juice as an astringent for my face. Just to cut the oil and daily grime off of my face at the end of the day. I made sure to keep it away from my eyes. This has been working really well for me and leaves my face clean and tingly. 

Some listed uses for Toe Juice (This is not only for your toes.):
  • Acne
  • Athletes foot
  • Diabetic
  • Eczema
  • Foot Problems
  • Ichthyosis Psoriasis
  • Insect Bites
  • Misc. Skin Irritation
  • Rashes
  • Ringworm
This product reminds me a lot of witch hazel and I am not sure I would want to put this on a cold sore on or near my mouth. That sounds very painful to me. However, I can see that this would work well for acne. 
Some things you should know:

  • Toe Juice can cause a burning sensation. When I say that, it is not painful, it is a mild burning like a menthol rub would cause. At least it was on me.
  • Because of the alcohol content, I would not use this anywhere that you have an open wound. Even a scratch would cause pain and irritation.
  • This is also a product that you will want to use in a well ventilated area. It has a very strong, alcohol scent to it. It should also be kept away from children and pets.

You can easily find Toe Juice at many local retailers including Walgreens, Albertsons, Target, and Walmart. It is also available online where they are currently running a promotion for new customers. You can get a bottle of Toe Juice for just the price of shipping.

I have a giveaway running for Toe Juice Here until 9/8/12 if you would like to enter.

Color Me Crazy - Splat Washables Review

A few days ago I received two boxes of Splat Washables. I received a Hot 4 Pink and an Electric Blue. I immediately got to work using myself and a friend of the family as guinea pigs.  

When I opened the first box, I was a little surprised to see that this was came with a tube of color and a separate mascara style brush to apply the color. I was not sure I was going to like the applicator separate and not part of the actual container. It actually worked out well. It allows you to apply the color to the brush part only. If the wand had been part of the container, I think the process of applying the color would have been messier. 

I was the first person to use the splat. I am purposely leaving out photos of this due to the fact that when a forty year old has an opportunity to go crazy with color, it looks a little crazy. The second person to use the color was a teenage friend of my family. She very graciously offered her head as a testing ground. The product was easy to apply and any mistake made was even easier to correct with just water. What I did notice is that the color varies based on your hair color. The darker your hair, the darker the color appears, but it is clearly still visible. I can see this being a must have in my home for Halloween and other times we just want to add a little color expression to our hair.

I was very happy with the ease of use and the colors. They were bright and fun. What I did find is that you cannot leave a teenage girl alone with the Splat Washables. Here is what happens when you do (this is NOT a recommended use and the dog was not harmed in any way).

But I did get a great quote that fit perfectly "Blue Mohawk  (: it's pretty cool, don't even need shampoo to wash it out. Just water!" 

Splat also makes other varieties of hair color products. You can check out the entire product line on their website. While you are there you can grab a $1.00 off coupon on their website that is good through August 31st.

Make Natural Choices For Your Family For Back To School

Make Natural Choices For Your Family For Back To School
Every purchase, of select products, during August through October, from Nordic Naturals will help Healthy Child Healthy World raise awareness about hidden chemicals.

 As parents we all try to do what is best for our children. From time to time we give in and buy them something we know that they probably should not have, but they are too cute to say "no" to. My house is not an exception to that rule. 

I have a 22 year old daughter that was diagnosed at the age of 19 with inoperable brain cancer. I also have a 4 year old that has epilepsy and cognitive delays. Both of my children were diagnosed with their health issues less than 3 months apart. I immediately went into "why" mode. Why me? Why a child? Why so young? The "why" mode transformed into the "what" mode. What is the cause of these issues? I started to research both brain cancer and epilepsy. I needed to know if there was a direct link to something I was doing or if it was totally out of my control ( I am a teeny bit of a control freak). 

After running into dead end after dead end, I asked everyone that I could think of if there was something that I could do to ease the symptoms or slow the progress. I immediately through out all plastic items from my house. I did not know what had BPA or PVC or anything else for that matter. I replaced all of my plastic containers with glass or BPA free plastics.

Then I removed everything from my house with artificial colors (red and yellow are a no no for epilepsy and ADHD). Then is was off to the cabinets. All cleaners had to go. I currently only use steam to kill germs in my house to avoid chemicals.

I removed all medications that could be replaced by a natural substance. all cold medicines and acetaminophen. I now only buy natural cold remedies and fever reducers. I clearly could not stop provided anti-seizure medications since that could cause life threatening problems, but I managed to remove an entire cabinet full of other items.

Clearly this has been done over time. It is too expensive to throw everything out and replace it all at once. It is my job as a mom to protect my children from harm. Unfortunately, harm is no longer just a stranger or falling out of a tree. It is in our food, water, medicines, cleaners, and many more day to day items. My family deserves to live in an environment that is safe from harm so I will do my best to protect them in any way that I can.

To learn more about how to keep your family safe you can visit Nordic Naturals or Healthy Child Healthy Worlds web site or social media sites.       

Here is the best part. Nordic Naturals will donate a portion of proceeds from selected Nordic Naturals children’s products to Healthy Child Healthy World during its Back-to-School promotion, which will run from August 1st   through October 31st. One dollar of every bottle sold of the following products will be donated to Healthy Child Healthy World:
  • Nordic Berries™ – chewy, sweet-and-sour multivitamins provide 100% of the daily value of the most essential nutrients
  • Nordic Omega-3 Gummies™ – easy-to-chew, omega-3 tangerine treats for ages 2+
  • Children’s DHA™ – chewable, strawberry-flavored omega-3s support brain and visual function for ages 3+
  • Baby’s DHA – omega-3s for babies 5-35 lbs. with a measured dropper for easy addition to formula or food 

Disclosure: All of the opinions in this post are my own. I was not compensated for this post but I am eligible for a prize package.

Mr. Chewy Pet Treats Review

I never knew there were so many varieties of dog and cat treats available until I visited I just placed my first order with Mr. Chewy. I ordered packages of dog treats and 3 packages of cat treats. I knew that my animals were going to be very happy with me when the box arrived.

Mr. Chewy was very easy to place an order with. They provide free shipping on orders over $49, which makes it cheaper too. Once I found the products that I wanted, the order process was very simple. I received an immediate email confirmation of my order then I started to receive the processing and shipping notifications.

The box arrived at my house and I had an immediate fan club. One chocolate lab and one hairy mutt at my feet with their tails wagging. Can they smell dog treats in sealed packages through cardboard? The clear answer is yes for my dogs.

I ordered two bags of Blue Buffalo and Greenies treats for my animals. There was definitely competitive pricing on the Mr. Chewy site. They are also offering 15% off of your first order. Combine the 15% off with free shipping on $49 or more and you are going to get a great deal. I know that I spend more that $49 at my local pet store when purchasing dog and cat food alone.With the quick reorder or scheduled deliveries, I can sit back and relax and not worry about running out of dog or cat food.

If you need pet treats, or other pet health products and have limited time, Mr. Chewy is a great resource. They will allow you to order what you need and have it delivered to your door. No gas, no driving, and best of all, more time for you to spend with your pets.

When your place your order from using the code TEMP2380, they'll get 10% off your first order! Plus, they will donate $10 to Best Friends Animal Society!

Rubbermaid Lunch Blox Review

I received a Rubbermaid Lunch Blox set the other day and I was so elated. When I agreed to test the product for Rubbermaid, I thought it was a lunch box. This is even better. This set has 5 pieces. A sandwich size container, a medium sized ( about half the size of the sandwich container, two small containers, and and ice pack. All of the pieces fit neatly together. They have a light snap in place feature that keeps them in a block shape that keeps them compact and more of a cube than individual containers. There is a teeny flaw with the containers, if you do not put the ice pack in the middle of the sandwich container and the three smaller containers, they do not snap together very securely.

I have been using these since I received them. I pack a lunch for my husband every day since he is on a restricted diet and drives a truck. The sandwich container is filled with homemade oatmeal, the two small containers usually have a hard boiled egg or trail mix, and the medium sized container has been everything from cottage cheese to fruit.

I was a little worried that when the containers were snapped together they would not fit in the insulated lunch box that we use. They fit perfectly! The ice kept the food cold witout getting the containers too cold. I have also noticed that the containers do not tip at all since they are locked together, which means no spills.

Overall, I am very happy with the lunchblox. I would love to purchase a few more sets of these so I do not have to wash them every day.

SodaStream Review

I recently received a Soadstream Fountain Jet from SodaStream USA and was like a kid in a candy store. I did not know where to start. Which flavor soda should I make first? Tough decision, but I figured that since I had a young child at my feet I would try one of their natural products.

Setting up the machine was very easy. I had to insert the CO2 canister and the actual unit was ready to use. I made sure that I washed the reusable bottle that came with the unit with soap and water to remove and unknown residues from packaging, and then I was ready to go.

Using the SodaSteam was super easy! Attaching the reusable bottle was a little awkward the first time just because I had never done it before, but it got much easier as I made more drinks.

When making your drinks, you need to realize that you are only adding carbonation to water. You do not add the flavoring until the water has carbonation. This will keep the unit from getting clogged and malfunctioning.

When adding the syrup to the water, there is a standard measurement, but you can adjust the level of flavor to your specific taste. Be very careful adding the flavor to the carbonated water. If you pour it in fast you will have a big mess to clean up (trust me, I tried).

I have tried several of the flavors so far, but I am on the hunt for new ones too. I really enjoyed the natural's flavors. There are unique flavors like black currant pear and apple mango. The naturals also contain real sugar. The standard flavors and diet varieties all contain some artificial sweetener in them. Since I could adjust the syrup to my taste, they were not too sweet and very refreshing.

I found that I did need to purchase a couple of spare carbonating bottles. One is just not enough. I purchased a twin pack at a local store and filled them with plain water. To make it easier, I stored them in the refrigerator until I was ready to make a drink. By doing this, the beverages were already cold when I made them and they did not require ice right away.

Overall the SodaStream is a great product. They are fun to have around and very easy to use.  
This is a  great gift idea for anyone that you know. Think about the possibilities.
