4DBlocks - Play it , Love it! - Magnetic Building Block Set – 40 Pieces – Promotes Creativity, Imagination & Brain Development – The Best Combination Of Recreation & Education For Children

I received these 4D blocks free to review for my 3 yr. old daughter for Christmas.

She loves to build and play with blocks, these are perfect for her since they are bigger, and magnetic so she can put them together herself.
She played with a friend of hers blocks like this, but these will be her first set. She's going to love that it comes with wheels, as she's into cars too!
( She hasn't seen or play with this set yet, as it's for Christmas, but I will be updating this post after Christmas.)
There is so many possibilities with these 4DBLOCKS, I can't wait to see what she comes up with.

They come packaged very neatly and come with a helpful guide, that shows how to build a few things and shows it comes with.
Also comes with a set of number stickers.
Based on the guide it looks like you can even make a FERRIS WHEEL!
I will be posting pictures of the different things that can be made (after Christmas)

These blocks can also be used for
  • Spatial Logic
  • Creative Thinking
  • Logical Math
  • Parent-Children Interaction
  • Color Training
  • Coordination Training

Peterpan hot water bottle with CAT and DOG cover

<a href="" rel="nofollow"><img style="display: none" src="" /></a>

Hot water bottles with CAT AND DOG covers~

I was so excited to receive these free for review! They are so soft and cuddly. They are the perfect size for kids, and are cute enough kids actually want to use them. They are great to snuggle with when it's cold outside.
These would make great Christmas presents!!

Perfect snuggle buddy on a cold night or to warm their beds up before nap time. The look just like stuffed animals, and are ECO-FRIENDLY, with no BPA's or Phthalates for the moms. My daughter loves hers. She wants to sleep with it even when it's not full of hot water.

Hot water bottle bag~
The hot water bottle goes into the back of the CAT and DOG covers. Their closed with Velcro strips. 

There is a different size in hot water bottles, between the CAT and DOG. The cat is much bigger, it fills the whole cat body, its flat so theirs more room, and the DOG is more like a reg. stuffed animal with loose legs so the back pouch is smaller.

e-raorganics Honeybuns baby products.

E-RAORGANICS Honeybuns Baby products.
I received these products free for review. I've been looking for the best baby products while on my my TTC (trying to conceive) journey. It first i was on the edge of if I liked the products, the baby lotion, and the diaper balm are both fragrance free. The baby body wash is honey scented. I wasn't a big fan of any of the scents, but as I used the products on my daughter they all had a different smell, while being used.

Diaper Balm~
I was very pleased with how well this worked! I used just a little on my toddlers 'diaper' rash and within a few hours I could already see a difference. It only took a very small amount to cover the area, and it went on smooth. It DOES leave your hands greasy feeling, but washes off easily.
I have a discount code for all of my followers to use!!!
It's 25% off

Baby Body Wash~

It says it's 'honey scented' but to me it smells more like unscented hospital soap. It's not a bad smell when your using it, and it foams/bubbles up really well. A cool feature it has is if you press the pump down and hold then twist it locks the pump so babies/toddlers can't get into it.
I have a discount code for all of my followers to use!!!

Baby Lotion~

The is really smooth and creamy. It's hypoallergenic, fragrance free, nutrient-rich, and non toxic...
What i really like about the lotion is it's the only one that claims to be animal cruelty free!

purifyou Premium Nipple Shield, Set of 3 with Soft Cotton Reusable Drawstring Bag -- Non-Toxic, BPA and BPS Free

I am one of those moms that has to use a nipple shield. Without them I could not feed my baby from my breast. The Purifyou nipple shields are perfect.They stay in place well and my baby can easily latch on.The fact this comes in a 3 pack

 is great.I can't count how many times I have misplaced my shield, they seem to disappear like magic in my house. They are soft and easily mold to the breast.They are everything I need in a shield to feed my baby. The reusable drawstring bag, is a great way for me to store and keep track of where my nipple shields are, and to keep them clean in the diaper bag.

may have to grab a few packs for baby number two.

FEITONG® Hot! 1PC Cloth Soft Nappy Reusable Washable Baby Infant Kids Cloth Nappies

FEITONG® Hot! 1PC Cloth Soft Nappy Reusable Washable Baby Infant Kids Cloth Nappies

I've recently started my cloth diaper stash. I love the bright green! It's very vibrant and can be gender neutral. It has multiple rows of snaps so It can grow with baby.

 The inside is a very soft material. Overall with the price I'm happy with this diaper. Note: just in case.. This diaper does NOT come with an insert.

Only thing I have a small problem with is some of the buttons do not line up evenly.

Hawiian Tropic silk hydration weightless lotion

I really hate a thick greasy sunscreen when I am trying to enjoy a beautiful day n the sun.I was excited to try Hawiian Tropic Silk Hydration Weightless Lotion Sunscreen.
The fact that it said it was weightless made me intriged as I have never seen a weightless sunscreen.
It was everything I ever wanted in a sunscreen.It was so sheer and didn't feel greasy and heavy on my skin.It had a light summer time smell with the coconut scent I love from Hawiian Tropic.The only down side is it did leave my hands a little greasy.Overall, I am very pleased with it and it will be in my bag this summer.
What did I love about it?
1- It was sheer and light
2- It had the Summer time scent I love from Hawiian Tropic.
3-It comes in an easy to use form.
4-The package is trendy.
5- Great for the whole family.

Packing away baby items for baby #2

Be sure to add labels - Baby

Your little one is outgrowing their newborn items and one day you hope to have a second baby.
I am going to help you organize for baby #2 or #3 or even #4 or more. First, keep your diaper boxes.They are the perfect size to store and free! Get a huge permanent marker and mark EVERY side including top and bottom with the size and gender.If you have gender neutral keep those separate.
Step 1- Organize by size: Newborn , 0-3 , 3-6 , 6-9 , 9-12, 12 , 18 , 24.
             Organize by item: Cloth diapers , towels , blankets , etc.
Step 2- Ditch the stained , ripped , or unwanted items.
Step 3- List all items in the box on a paper or digital file. Number the boxes to match the lists.

Step 4- Mark the box on all sides.

Step 5- Store the boxes in a safe place.

This is going to make buying for the next baby super easy and you will have a list of items in the box.This means if you later decide to sell the items or donate you will know right where to find that special outfit grandma bought or that baby came home in.

My mom did this with us and she swears by it.She did this later with jeans and dresses.If you prefer to buy storage boxes opt for smaller ones to maximize space.Or even grab some space bags.You can mark each bag and they take up way less space.

Enjoy the ease of prepping for your new baby with a toddler!

Taking Inventory for Baby #2

It is time to start thinking about baby number two and you want to know what you will need to have on hand.Here is a quick guide on how to inventory what you already have for baby.

The big stuff:
Chances are you kept the crib , changing table , high chair , ect. If not add them to your must have list. IF you USED them and know you need them. Chances are some big items you had to have for baby number one sat unused or under used. Sell these and buy things you couldn't live without!

The clothes:
- Sort them by size if you didn't pack them away according to sizes.
- Sort by gender or gender neutral.
-How many never even fit before they outgrew them? Be honest!
- Assume the new baby will not be the same sex and see what you need that you do not have in gender neutral.Tip if you are planning a 3rd , 4th , 5th go ahead and buy gender neutral.Chances are a grandparent , aunt or BBF will go nuts buying pink or blue. 😉

The Diapers:
Cloth or Disposible? Either way you need a nice stockpile of diapers. Start before baby arrives.
Bath and Skin Care:
Do you have enough towels and washrags? Those baby ones are cute ,but ones already in the linen closet work just as well.
Baby bathwash, lotion, diaper cream
Do you have enough sheet , blankets , etc? You probably do even if they are the wrong color.Hopefully you have a few gender neutral ones to get you started.
Chances are you have them coming out of your ears! Trading these in can get you the items you need for baby.

Remember , They grow so fast and you don't need to spend $10,000 on items for a year.They won't remember. Save that money for when they are teens and need a car , the prom , or college!
Babies are fine with the basics.They need love , food , clean diapers , and basic clothing for the weather. Everything else is more for you than them! They won't care when they are 20 if you paid $5,000 getting that nursery done.They will remeber how you loved them and maybe that car at 16. LoL.

The Spinbrush Truly Radiant Battery-Powered Toothbrush and Truly Radiant Toothpaste

I recently was asked to test some  Arm & Hammer dental products.
The Spinbrush Truly Radiant Battery-Powered Toothbrush and Truly Radiant Toothpaste.
I knew Arm & Hammer was suppose to be good for your teeth , but I had never tried it.
I worried it wouldn't work as good as my other big brand name toothpaste.
Iwas pleasantly surpised it worked great and my teeth felt amazing.I couldn't stop running my tongue over them.I will be buying another tube when this one runs out and replacing all our toothbrushes with the Spinbrush Truly Radiant Battery-Powered Toothbrush.Give it a try and let me know in the comments how you liked it.

Mr. Sketch Scented Washable markers

This post was sponsored by Mr. Sketch® as part of a sampling activation for Crowdtap. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review~

My daughter loves them. All but 2 smell just like laffy taffy. The licorice smells like jelly beans, and the cinnamon smells like fresh baked cinnamon rolls. The colors are all bright and draw smoothly. 

The really cool thing is that you can smell the scents on the paper as you color or draw. Each marker is angled so you can make thick or thin lines. Having the scents coming off the page give my kids pictures an extra creative edge. 
Me and Monkey had a fun time coloring together. Its always nice to have a fun, Mommy/daughter day!

Garnier Olia Hair Dye Party

Recently I hosted a Olia hair coloring party.Garnier sent me a party pack with brightly colored hair clips and a wide variety of Olia hair dye.The party pack:

I invited over a few friends and let them all pick a dye and the party began.We took turns applying the dye to each others hair and pinning it up with the clips.While we waited we had a snack and watched a movie.Finally it was time to rinse out the dye.

Everyone was really excited with the color choices. One of my friends wasn't ready to dye permanent so she just hung out with us.Everyone looks amazing.This had Sally wanting to try a dye so I sent her home with the Medium Golden Brown since it was close to her natural color and she didn't want too big of a change.

This is me before and after dying my hair! I used the Light Intense Aurburn.

I love my hair.The color is lush and rich.My hair was left feeling so soft and manageable. Thank you Garnier Olia for helping me throw a great party!

In my free review package I received:
5 samples of Whole Blends Honey Treasures Shampoo & Conditioner packets 5 samples of Whole Blends Coconut Oil and Coconut Butter Shampoo & Conditioner packets 5 samples of Whole Blends Coconut Water and Vanilla Milk Shampoo & Conditioner packets.

<I was super excited to try this new line with natural ingredients.First I tried Garnier Whole Blends Honey Treasures! It smelled just like 'warm vanilla' It left my feeling so soft and smooth.I was very pleased with how it worked.

My daughter tried the Garnier Whole Blends Coconut Oil, and Vanilla Milk. Her hair was so shiny and silky after using it.I could realy see a difference in her hair and it was radiant, her curls really stood out.
(Blowing kisses after trying the new shampoo)
Finally , I tried the Garnier Whole Blends Coconut Oil, and Cocoa Butter.This one was just as amazing as the other two and smelled great.It had a light coconut scent that reminds me of Summer time.

Amope Pedi Perfect Wet and Dry Foot File

I received the Amope Pedi Perfect free from Crowdtap for my honest opinion.
I was so excited to get it, It can be used wet or dry, and it's RECHARGEABLE! 
How cool is that?

The Amope has a nice thick handle, but is small enough it's comfortable to hold in my
little hands, but also my fiancee's bigger hands.
It's easy to charge with its easy to use charging base.
to charge all you have to do is plug the USB port into the wall charger, or can even use 
your computer. Then you place the Amope on the charging dock and tada! it's charging.
It's bigger than I was expecting, but in a really good way.
It has 2 speeds, and a strong motor. It gently removes the dead/dry skin
from my feet, and it can also be used on elbows.


The roller head is removable and can be replaced with another file head, or they even make buffer, and smooth heads to interchange it with.

After only a few days I can already tell a big difference in the feel of my feet, They are much softer.
Even my fiancee likes to use it on his feet.
That makes it a huge win in my book.
