SodaStream Fountain Jet Review

I love fizzy drinks. Even if it is just plain water, a little fizz and a slice of lemon make it a treat. I also love my cola! So, when I got the chance to try the SodaStream, I hopped right on board. I was hoping it would be as good as everyone seems to say they are. And you know what? I love it. I love that when I want a lot of fizz, I can put a lot in...I can put a little if I want. I can do the same with the syrups. Some of the syrups, like the Black Currant Pear syrup, taste good at whatever … [Read more...]

Peppa Pig Peek ‘n Surprise Playhouse Review

Oh how my girls LOVE Peppa Pig.  I have actually grown to love her too.   I love the English accent that they family has.  I love that my girls are learning new words for the same items.  (Like when Peppa calls it a lift, but we call it an elevator).  So, it was no surprise that when my girls got home from school, they almost fell over to see the Peppa Pig Peek 'n Surprise Playhouse. With this playhouse set, you get 18 play pieces that all store within the house.  It even includes … [Read more...]

Touchtile Reading System from Learning Link Technologies – Review and Giveaway

As some of you probably know, I have been extremely busy lately with my latest community-based mission.  I am working with a group of teachers to try to start a charter school in my area.  Although I am not a teacher myself, my work with this school has made me incredibly interested in educational philosophies, brain research, and the process of learning.  Not only that, like many of you I am also a mom.  My son Johnathon is six and he is incredibly smart.  He can already do basic … [Read more...]

Nielsen-Massey Vanillas Review and Giveaway

As most of you probably know by now - I'm not the world's greatest cook.  I don't seem to have a natural knack for it, but I do enjoy trying.  In spite of being a mediocre cook (or maybe because of it), I've discovered that I'm a little bit of an ingredient snob.  In my experience, the better the ingredients, the better the end product.  This holds true in all of my cooking endeavors, but it is especially true when I bake.  For instance, about a month ago I tried to back cookies using … [Read more...]

STELLALUNA Review and Giveaway

If your kids are anything like mine, every once in a while they discover a movie so much that they have to watch it over and over and over and over again until they've memorized the whole movie.  Then they watch it a few more times just for fun.  We just received STELLALUNA the mail to review this morning, and already my children have watching it three times and they were angry when I turned off the television and told them that it was time to hang out with me.  (Okay, I guess that's not the … [Read more...]

EatSmart Review and Giveaway

Okay, by a show of hands (a secret show of hands since I can't actually see you) - how many of us made a New Year's resolution to lose weight?  Now, how many of us have actually lost any weight?  If you are among the successful losers in this group congrats! and also I'm not sure if we should be friends anymore because I haven't managed to lose anything (and I tend to get jealous and bitter.)  Fortunately for me (and our budding friendship (-:)  I have a new tool that will … [Read more...]

OXY® Clinical Acne Solutions Pack Review and Giveaway

As most of you have probably noticed, I haven't been posting much lately.  That's because I started a new job, made a huge move with my husband and family, started working on bringing a school to my community, and I've been dealing with some super-sick kiddos.  In short - I've been BUSY!  I don't know about you, but when I get busy, I get stressed, and when I get stressed out, I start breaking out like I'm fourteen years old again.  I don't understand it.  Shouldn't the reward of making it … [Read more...]

Zero Water – Review and Giveaway

I am so excited to tell you all about my favorite new product!  Zero Water is an unbelievable water filtration system that uses a five-stage filter to remove virtually all dissolved solids from your water.  My family is lucky enough to live in an area with clean, untreated water that comes straight from the ground, but I still prefer filtered water. First of all, I get kidney stones a lot (which are incredibly painful and something I'd rather avoid, go figure).  The doctor has recommended … [Read more...]

Let's take a walk down memory lane for a few minutes.  Last week I posted a giveaway and the entry was to tell me your favorite childhood toy.  As I was reading the answers it brought back so many memories of my own toys.  Barbies, Micro Machines, doll houses, Rainbow Bright, Teddy Ruxben and a personal favorite The Poppols.  The Poppuls were the ultimate cool stuffed animal.  Tiny hedgehog type thing that you turned inside out. It had tail with a bobble on the end.  I loved these animals … [Read more...]
