As a fan of outdoor twinkle lights, I really love my new strand of warm white blossom outdoor solar LED lights from LightsEtc. Once I fully charged the solar panel for 12 hours, I found that the battery lasted well into the night. I appreciate that I can place the lights anywhere in my yard with full sun instead of needing to run extension cords through my grass. The easy-to-install stake secures the solar panel into the ground, and hanging the lights was simple. The lights come with two lighting modes (continuous on or flashing), which allows me to customize the ambiance. The solar panel charges the battery during the day, and the built-in sensor turns the lights ib automatically at dusk, so I never have to worry about turning the lights on or off. If you are a fan of twinkle lights and are shopping for a solar powered option, I definitely recommend the strand of LightsEtc warm white blossom outdoor solar LED lights.
With hot soupy summer weather here, my kids and I stay inside during the day, venturing outside only in the evenings. I have quite a few solar lights set up around my yard to provide lighting and ambiance. I love stringing up Christmas lights during the holidays, but I also decorate my house for all […]

I am a bit obsessed with solar lights. I love that I can put lights almost anywhere in my yard with full sun most of the day without having to run new wiring or extension cords. I also love decorating with Christmas lights. I adorn my entire home with lights in during the winter holidays, […]

If your child is a fan of Finding Dory, then the National Geographic Kids “Dive Into Summer” learning set is perfect for you! Both my toddler and preschooler love looking at the full color photographic illustrations in the nonfiction Ocean Animals: Who’s Who in the Deep Blue. I am also looking forward to sharing National Geographic Kids Ocean Animals Sticker Activity Book with my daughter during homeschool lessons this fall. Both kiddos absolutely adore the Dory plushie, especially my daughter who got to see the movie in the theater. I therefore highly recommend the “Dive Into Summer” set from National Geographic Kids!
I have always loved National Geographic. I remember flipping through the pages of the magazine as a kid. Now that I have my own children, I also love the products from National Geographic Kids. I recently review an “Explore the Outdoors” set of materials from National Geographic Kids that my kids and I absolutely love. […]

If you are shopping for silicone teethers for your baby or toddler, my son and I highly recommend the fruit silicone teether toys from #ArimyBaby. The set of five teethers and bonus gum massager comes with red and green cherries, yellow and green bananas, orange and green carrot, purple and green grapes, purple and green ring, and a clear gum massager. As soon as I opened the package and washed the toys, my immediately started gnawing on all five. He also loves chewing on the bonus baby gum massager. I have tried rubbing his gums for him, but he insists on doing so himself! The silicone is dishwasher safe, so I can place the toys in the top rack of my dishwasher for a thorough cleaning every few days. The Arimy Baby fruit silicone teether toys are fabulous for any teething child!
Silicone is my absolute favorite material for kitchen utensils, toys, and more. I love that silicone is easy to care for, soft and flexible, and safer than plastic. Both my kids love to chew, especially my toddler son who is still getting the last of his baby teeth in. He currently has twelve of his […]

The Mini Jedi Star Wars baby bodysuit from #BaffleOnesies is the perfect baby outfit for Star Wars fan parents. Made with 100% cotton, the onesie features a short-sleeve design with expandable shoulders. Three non-nickel metal snaps secure the bottom of the bodysuit at the crotch. The bodysuit is available in sizes 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 18 months, and 24 months. I received the 24 month size, which fits my twenty-one-month-old son loosely. The white cotton is soft and durable. However, the black design on the chest began to crack and show evidence of wear after a single wash and dry. While the bodysuit is adorable, I do expect higher quality materials on the entire piece of clothing, design included, for $14.99. I received a bodysuit in exchange for my honest opinion.

I am a big Star Wars fan, and my son loved watching the newest movie. He sat on the couch and stared at the television, absolutely enthralled. I also love dressing my babies in bodysuits, which stay put in cooler weather better than shirts. Onesies are also great to layer underneath other shirts. I am […]

I am incredibly impressed with my new #Mamaway UltraComfort seamless maternity and nursing bra. Made with 80% Nylon and 20% Spandex, the bra features ribbed fabric that stretches up to three cup sizes, giving breastfeeding moms much needed structural support without an underwire. The one-piece molded design ensures maximum comfort even with fluctuation in breast size due to pregnancy and breastfeeding. The material is super soft against even the more sensitive skin. I love the stretchiness that the Spandex creates. The fabric also returns to a smaller size and maintains its shape wash after wash. The bra is easy to launder, either by hand or in a machine. If you are shopping for a new nursing bra that offers comfortable support without an underwire, I highly recommend the UltraComfort seamless maternity and nursing bra from Mamaway.
With almost four and a half years of breastfeeding in my pocket, I have come to appreciate the importance of a comfortable nursing bra. After initially trying many different styles and designs, I found that I prefer unpadded bras without underwires. I also like back closure designs over sports bras. Thus, when recently offered the […]

I am super impressed with my glass water bottle from MIU COLOR. I can fit an entire four-cup pot of coffee in the bottle, which is constructed from heat-resistant high borosilicate glass. The handmade bottle and stainless steel with food-grade rubber ring contain no BPA, PVC, lead, or other toxic chemicals. The heat-resistant bottle holds up to 24.5 ounces of liquid and comes with a Nylon zippered sleeve. Once I realized that I could put the entire pot of coffee in the bottle, I was hooked. The Nylon sleeve makes carrying the bottle around easy and protects the durable glass from breakage and my hands from hot temperatures. If you are shopping for a new water bottle, I highly recommend the MIU COLOR glass water bottle.
I prefer to use glass in my kitchen because glass is non-toxic and dishwasher-safe. I recently review two foldable large picnic blankets from MIU COLOR, both of which I love. My kids and I often eat picnic lunches while out and about at the park or zoo. When on the go, I usually also bring […]

Silicone is my absolute favorite material for kitchen utensils, toys, and more. I love that silicone is easy to care for, soft and flexible, and safer than plastic. Both my kids love to chew, especially my toddler son who is still getting the last of his baby teeth in. He currently has twelve of his twenty primary teeth. To keep him from gnawing on me, I frequently had him a teething toy to keep his mouth safely occupied. Thus, when recently offered the chance to review a set of fruit silicone teether toys from Arimy Baby in exchange for my honest opinion, I eagerly accepted the opportunity.

If you are shopping for a new swimsuit, definitely give the retro vintage one-piece monokini cut-out swimsuit from OULISI a look. Available in black, rose red, green, and yellow, the swimsuit consists of 82% Nylon and 18% Spandex for a soft and stretchy feel. The front is lined in white, which gives me additional coverage. However, I do wish that the bum were also lined for added comfort. The cut-out sides provide a retro feel while a wide band across the stomach offers adequate coverage. The neck and back ties allow me to adjust the fit. The suit is available in medium, large, and extra large. The brand does warn that the swimsuit runs small and to choose one size up. I typically wear a medium (US 4/6) but fit into the extra large swimsuit. Overall, I am quite pleased with my new yellow OULISI retro vintage one-piece monokini cut-out swimsuit.
The weather has been soupy hot in my neck of the words for the past couple of days. To keep cool during the day, my kids and I have been heading to the local swimming pool. When recently offered the chance to review a retro vintage one-piece monokini cut-out swimsuit from OULISI in exchange for […]

If you do a lot of cooking with fresh herbs, spices, vegetables, and fruits, I definitely recommend the set of three premium mini stackable glass prep bowls from Lauryn Janae. Made with durable clear glass, the miniature bowls measure 3.5 inches in diameter. With my subscription meal boxes, I chop up a lot of fresh herbs and small fruits and veggies. The small size is perfect for cilantro, rosemary, garlic, and more. I love that I do not have to get a bunch of larger cereal bowls dirty as I prepare home cooked meals for my family. The small size is also perfect for dips and sauces. The glass is also dishwasher safe, and my prep bowls come out shiny clean after every wash. I just wish that I had more than three! I received a set of bowls in exchange for my honest opinion.

My family and I subscribe to Blue Apron and Hello Fresh. Both meal boxes provide me with the portioned ingredients that I need to cook delicious home meals. While chopping up the fresh fruits, veggies, herbs, and spices, I find myself using at least a couple of small bowls per meal. Instead of using a […]

If you do a lot of home cooking, I highly recommend the Vivree 5-piece unbreakable cooking utensils set. Made with FDA-approved BPA-free silicone, the set comes with a ladle, large spoon, spaghetti spoon, turner, and spatula. The lightweight utensils are heat-resistant to 480º F, making the set perfect for pretty much every dish that I whip up on my stove. The non-scratch silicone material extends the life of Teflon-coated pots and pans by preserving the non-stick surface, although I use my mainly with my cast iron cookware. The black silicone is stain-resistant, odor-resistant, non-stick, scratch-resistant, and dishwasher-safe. Cleanup is a breeze, and the silicone is incredibly durable. I am quite impressed with my set and wish that I had invested in the five-piece set sooner!
I love using silicone utensils in my kitchen. Silicone is non-stick, dishwasher safe, and durable. I have recently been switching out my plastic cooking utensils for silicone versions. Thus, when recently offered the chance to review a Vivree 5-piece unbreakable cooking utensils set in exchange for my honest opinion, I eagerly accepted the opportunity to […]
