#HolidayHelpers: SnorgTees Giveaway

Zombies Hate Fast Food

Who says you can’t wear funny T-shirts when your older?!?! When I turned 32 and was a new mother (plus a little heavier than before), I gave away most of my funny T-shirts because I thought I was too old to wear them… but now that I am 36 I have found a new love for T-shirts with crazy photos, nostalgic images, funny sayings, etc. 

Your never to old to have a sense of humor!

This is one of my favorite shirts to wear ~ “Not A Morning Person” T-shirt ($18.95)! 
Coffee + funny T-shirt = crazy Mom in the morning! 
 These shirts are well made and super comfy… and would make a great stocking stuffer!

SnorgTees got its start back in May 2004 when our group of friends decided that we weren’t meant for a real job. We got our options narrowed down to international jewel thieves or internet t-shirt tycoons. Since it was the middle of the summer, we weren’t able to find enough ski masks, which left t-shirts as our only option. Fast forward a few years and we’ve grown to the point where people mistake us for an actual business. We’ve even shipped a shirt to NASA. That means space. So technically we’re a universal company. But we are still just a group of friends who run Snorg because we enjoy it.

Here at Snorg, we specialize in pop-culture inspired, random, and all around funny t-shirt designs. Most of the designs on our site are SnorgTees employee creations. But while we think of about 72% of what goes up on the site, 28% of the awesome design ideas come from you, our customers. So if you think you’ve got a great idea, send it our way.

Here are a 2 more tees I’d love to own…
Gimme Some Sugar, Baby – $18.95
That’s My Jam – $18.95

You can find the perfect T-shirt for men, women, & kids
They also carry hoodies!

#HolidayHelpers: Listerine/Gingerbread Kit Review & Giveaway

 
   
Share Button

Baking & Brushing…Time for a little Listerine fun!
Listerine sent me a wonderful Gingerbread & Listerine Kit to review. It had everything for baking gingerbread cookies (including a box of gingerbread mix, an apron for me and an apron for Logan, plus an adorable peppermint spatula). As for all the wonderful teething cleaning products, you can see them in the above photo (Rembrandt 2 Hour Whitening Kit, Listerine Whitening Vibrant White Rinse, Listerine Smart Rinse for Kids, Rembrandt Deeply White toothpaste, Rembrandt Intense Stain toothpaste, 3 new toothbrushes and Reach Total Care Floss). These ingredients combine to make the perfect family friendly activity for all to enjoy together!

My son just got over being sick, so I decided to make the Gingerbread cookies while the kids took their naps. Good thing too… the dough was a little sticker than I am used to, so a had flour every where! Baking can be so much fun as a family activity. I love the 2 aprons they sent for us to wear. Logan is my little helper in the kitchen, so I know he will enjoy having his own apron.


When the kids woke up from their naps, they were more than happy to test out the cookies.

Now that the baking is done, it’s time for brushing! We have been working on dental hygiene with our kids. Having a healthy mouth is very important! I think my husband was more excited about the mouthwash for the kids than the other products. Logan is at the age where he can now rinse without swallowing. Brushing is great, but using a rinse will get in the places that they missed with the toothbrush.


Emerging science suggests that advanced gum disease may be linked to diabetes, cardiovascular problems, and pre-term birth. The early stage of gum disease is gingivitis—which affects a majority of all adult Americans at some point in their lives. And most don’t even know it.

Many theories exist and more studies are underway to explore the connection between good oral health and overall health. Despite the differing opinions on this topic, one thing is clear: a healthy mouth leads only to good things.

BUY IT!
Listerine Products are sold nationwide at most drug stores, grocery stores, and stores like Target and Walmart. Check out the Listerine website for coupons!

WIN IT!
One lucky reader will win a Gingerbread Kit (Contents of the kit will include a gingerbread making kit, peppermint spatula, and an apron for both mom and child, all packed together in a reusable snow flake grocery tote containing REMBRANDT®, REACH® and LISTERINE® oral care products.)

Eye-Catching Sexy Lingerie

What women (or man) doesn’t feel like spicing things up with a little sexy lingerie!?!? I love lingerie, but after having two kids I don’t get a chance to wear anything special…so I was thrilled to have a chance to shop for myself.

The Sexy Lingerie Shop provides a discrete, safe way to buy beautiful sexy lingerie, intimate apparel, club wear and sexy costumes from the comfort of your home. You’ll find everything from sexy and playful babydolls and teddies to beautiful bustiers, chemises and camisoles — and even sexy costumes for Halloween, Valentines Day or some other special occasion.

I chose a few fun items from SexyLingerieShop.com that I could wear in front of the kids… 
but still has a little sexy edge to it. They have everything from naughty to nice!

Only $19.99
Okay, so I wouldn’t wear this in front of the kids… but I thought it was cute and sexy! 
I’m not a pink person, yet I love the hint of color against the black and white.
Now I just need an evening alone with my husband. 

$29.99
From the photo, you can’t tell that the red on the cami is actually mesh! 
LOVE the hint of skin I can show with outfit. 
The pants are super silky and comfortable. 
I have always had a fascination with silky items.  
(Yes, I was the kid who always held the blanket and 
rubbed the satin until it was thread barren.)
$34.99
Another satin pair of pajamas I just had to have! 
Covers everything so I can wear in front of the kids… yet I still feel sexy.
What I like the most about these outfits is the affordable price and quality. I will definitely be ordering a few more outfits later…because really you can never have too much lingerie!

#HolidayHelpers: Miraclebody Review & Giveaway

 
   
Share Button

I have been waiting patiently for Miraclebody to come out with Petite sizes! When I got the email from Miraclebody that this Fall, their Petite line would be available I literally jumped for joy! Hey, I am SHORT! I’m 5’1″ and not getting any taller. I’ve always had to roll or hem my jeans (which can get old after a while).
I received a pair of Samantha Tacked Petite Boot Cut (Milano) to review. I’d love to say I looked as good as the model, but hey…I am ME and I looked pretty darn good, and felt good too!

New For Fall 2011 now in Petite! Glamorize your legs in the Fall boot cut style some of us are calling our secret to a flawless fit. Traditional five pocket Samantha boot cut style jean backed with a higher-than-most waistband keeps away unwanted gaping and panty-peeking. The secret lies in our tummy control panel which keeps you in tact and smoothes your front while letting you breathe easy. Instant backside boost provided by our one and only cotton and spandex control fabric that also shapes the thighs. We consider the flare of our boot cut and new slightly distressed Milano wash quite the perfect couple as both contribute a streamlined look for practically any body type. Miraclebody’s signature boot cut style not only balances out the hips but also hides curves as the appealing flare flows away from the body. Deep, dusky Milano wash disguises our sometimes bulgier areas. Slight tacking and sanding on front and back pockets adds texture and enticing fun to this lasting staple.

 The Samantha Tacked, Petite Boot Cut features:

  • Look 10 pounds lighter in 10 seconds! (Most of the women I know are concerned about their weight and how they look in jeans. Well, with the help of Miraclebody, they can look 10 pounds lighter! What women wouldn’t want to look skinnier in her jeans? I know I would rather put on a pair of jeans that flatter my figure, than a pair of jeans that are baggy. Yes, I truly believe that these jeans are a MIRACLE!)
  • Petite length 29 1/2″ inseam (Though with my short legs I could go for a shorter inseam, maybe 28″?)
  • 10″ Mid-rise sits 1″ below the belly button; higher cut in the back for rear coverage (LOVE the mid-rise! It’s cut perfectly so you don’t get the “muffin-top” that you do with so many jeans. These jeans fit like a glove and don’t pull at the zipper.)
  • Boot cut: subtle flair in the leg creates a balanced appearance (For my body type, I have found boot cut to be the most flattering on my body. Just enough of a flair to make me look a tad taller.)
  • Embroidered pockets: Classic style, designed to give the illusion of a slimmer backside (Thank you Miraclebody! The pocket lay on my tush, not under it!)
  • 82% Cotton, 16% Polyester, 2% Spandex: comfortable fit with breathe-easy stretch (Comfortable stretch denim…perfect for work or out on the town!)
  • Made in the USA of imported fabric (Yeah for the USA!)
Who wouldn’t want to look 10 lbs lighter in 10 seconds!
I have always been one to shy away from jeans…especially after having 2 kids, they just don’t fit quite right or make me feel fat! However, after owning Miraclebody jeans for over a year, they are my favorite pair of jeans to wear. Now with their Petite line, I feel that I have more options for work, play and at home. Okay, so you have seen the model, now let’s cut to the chase and see a non-model…let’s see ME!
WOW…Thank you Miraclebody for giving me back my pre-pregnancy tushy! The pants fit perfectly. They hold in where they need to hold in and the stretch is just enough to allow movement, but not be baggy! Like I said before, I am SHORT…so even the Petite line is too long for me. However, with the right heel, they will work great.

#HolidayHelpers: ChicoBag Review & Giveaway

 
   
Share Button
I love ChicoBags! ChicoBag’s mission is to reduce single-use bag waste by offering compact reusable bags that are designed to be unforgettable. They are eco-friendly, well made and they have an amazing selection of styles and colors to choose from. 
You don’t have to waste plastic and paper bags each time you visit the grocery store or mall. I leave me reusable bags in the car so I never forget them. It’s important to HELP eliminate the unnecessary usage of disposable bags, and even in some states grocery stores don’t offer paper and plastic any more. You can be a friend to the environment and bring your own reusable bags when you shop. 
The Produce Stand Complete Starter Kit is a great alternative to single-use disposable produce bags and makes it easy to remember your reusable produce bags every time you shop. The Produce Stand Complete Starter Kit consists of three different reusable produce bags, each made of a different fabric: rePETe, rePETe Mesh, and a 70% Hemp – 30% Cotton blend. All three bags are machine washable and stuff into an adorable apple pouch with an attached carabiner, making it easy to carry and store your bags when not in use. The Produce Stand Complete Starter Kit is the key to reducing your environmental impact and completely eliminating single-use plastic bags from your shopping trips.
I didn’t even think about using reusable bags for my produce. Each time I go to the market I buy fruit and veggies… and each time I have been grabbing a plastic bag for each type of produce I needed to purchase. 
What I love about this kit is that all 3 bags fit conveniently in a cute little apple pouch. I can easily clip it to my wallet and go to the store. My son is always a big help, so the last time we were at the market he picked out the apples and placed them in the bag for me. 
The only problem I found is that I buy so much fruit that I need more bags! It’s a great way to start, and let’s you figure out what you want and need. Guess I know what to ask Santa for this year…more rePETe Mesh bags!
Feel free to read my DayPack20 review for more details.

#HolidayHelpers: Magic Cabin Review & $50 Gift Card Giveaway

 
   
Share Button

Make this year magical for your little ones with a special gift from Magic Cabin.
From our humble beginnings in 1989, to our full-color, full-size catalog of today, Magic Cabin has been guided by the simple notion that children’s lives are enriched by ample time for open-ended, creative, imaginative play. We believe in good-old-fashioned make believe and in children’s innate need to interact with simple, natural toys and crafts.

While childhood becomes endangered we pioneer towards protecting this special time in life by conscientiously selecting products that are beautiful and enchanting, sturdy and safe, and best of all, FUN. 

We got the Spinning Seesaw to review.



The Spinning Seesaw take playtime to a whole new level of fun! It doesn’t only go up and down… it spins around 360 degrees! It’s like a mini amusement park ride for kids! Plus, you can easily adjust the spinning seesaw to only go up and down.

My husband put it together easily; however, he needed a few extra tools. It did come with an Allen wrench, but you will need a second one or a pozidriv screwdriver (neither of use knew what that was… so I did a search & the image for the pozidriv was a different shape than the screw)

It’s made from durable weather-resistant metal. We live in the mountains, so we will store it in the garage during the winter/snowy months. For the purpose of this review we allowed the kids to play inside, but the tripod base can be staked into the ground (it comes with 3 stakes). I highly recommend having it staked down for stability.

The Spinning Seesaw is intended for ages 3-8; holds up to 90 lbs. total. Kira turned 2 in June, so she is still a little too tiny for this fun toy. Though with adult supervision the kids were both able to play safely together. It didn’t take long for Logan to become a PRO at bouncing and spinning. The only think is trying to keep him from going too fast.

*You may want to turn down the sound, because my voice is really loud…heehehe.

#HolidayHelpers: Discount School Supply "Build Your Own Place Space" Review & Giveaway

 
   
Share Button
Discount School Supply created a Holiday Gift Guide that made shopping easy for me this year! My kids love to build hiding spots, tunnels, trains, etc with anything they can find in the house. So I decided to search “Likes to Build” for gift ideas… and found the perfect gift for them ~ Build Your Own Play Place.
Includes 2 of each color: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple
Let your children’s imagination run wild and create tons of different hideouts!
This set consists of 12 bright primary and secondary colored tent squares attach to each other with hook and loop fastened to firm outer sides. This allows the squares to hold each other up with ease. Please be aware that the hook is slightly sharp and can scratch the skin. Both of my kids did get a few scratches on their faces, but nothing horrible.
Kids can design just about anything…private spaces, tunnels, mazes and more! Depending on their age, they may need help (adult supervision is advised while kids are playing with this set). My kids are 2 & 4, and they didn’t have any problems pulling apart the squares. They could even put the squares together, but Mommy had to really design the different spaces for them. I can’t wait until they are a little older and can create their own play places.
Bonus for parents… it folds easily for storage (measures 48″Sq.). You can store this any where… in the closet, under the bed, next to the TV.

So, what does your child(ren) like to do?
