Ruby Roo's Silicone Teething Necklace


Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own. 

Bring beauty and calmness to mother's of teething babies with the new Ruby Roo's Silicone Teething Necklace! These necklaces are made of FDA Approved food grade silicone and are 100% BPA free making them completely safe for babies to chew on. They bring extra beauty to a mothers wardrobe, all while keeping her baby entertained and soothing their little gums in one. The teething necklaces are soft and chewable, giving babies an amazing sensory experience while being held or nursing.

I really like the texture and squishyness of these teething necklaces. You can add a little extra pizazz to your wardrobe while pleasing your babies sore gums and giving them a distraction to hair pulling or finger sucking. This necklace can also be placed in the freezer for extra relief! Which would be great in the summer. Each teething necklace is 30 inches in length and features a breakaway clasp with individual knotted beads for added safety as well as keeping your hair from getting tangled. The necklace should be sterilized in hot water or a dishwasher, before use, and only be worn by the adult. As all jewelry, it is not a toy for babies, so be sure you never leave baby unattended with it.

Ruby Roo's Silicone Teething Necklace would make a great baby shower gift
or present for yourself as a mother of a teething baby!

Enjoying the Many Kroger Family Brand Foods

As a member of Bzzagent, I received and amazing package of Kroger family brand foods to review. Some of the brands, people have never heard of or even thought about trying! But they're missing out and some of the most delicious and affordable options out there.

Private Selections, Psst..., and Simple Truth just to name a few... Each of these brands carry a different variety of foods to choose from, all at great quality and excellent prices.

In my Bzzagent Box, I received several free coupons to purchase as well as Private Selections Breakfast Blend coffee, Kroger Tomatillo Lime tortillas, Psst... Brownie Mix, and Simple Truth organic banana chips, along with coupons to share with family and friends. 

The first thing we tried were the banana chips! These were amazing. They brought me back to my childhood when I would munch on banana chips and raisins for snack. They taste just as good as I remember, except these ones are made with organic bananas and coconut oil, making them that much better for you!
We had tacos for dinner one night, using the Kroger Tomatillo Lime tortillas, a flavor I never new existed in tortillas! These were interesting! The lime made them taste sweet, like they should be used in a dessert. Next time I purchase them, I will try to make elephant ears with them. I think that would be delicious! Fry up the tortillas in butter, and sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon across them. Sounds divine.... Since we used the tortillas for tacos, I used my Pineapple Salsa with them, and the combination was the perfect amount of tropical tasting tacos I've ever had. Really really good! My husband and son didn't like these tortillas much, so next time around I purchased Krogers Nacho Cheese hard shelled tacos. These were a big hit in taco making, other then them breaking easily, so we used them to make a taco salad instead. Still wonderful. 

For breakfast, I brewed me a cup of Private Selections Breakfast Blend Coffee. Its bright and nutty blend was really light tasting. A more mild coffee that wasn't really my favorite but I love the fact that their beans are hand selected from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms in Latin America.
And with that coffee, I made Private Selections Center Cut Bacon. Oh.My.Goodness. Best tasting bacon we have ever had, not even kidding. Even my husband said "these are literally the most perfectly cooked, best tasting bacon ever!" I cooked the bacon in the oven at 375 degrees until they were crisp, and we devoured them for breakfast, with enough to set aside for leftovers. We also purchased Private Selections Applewood Smoked Bacon using a $1 off coupon, to eat with dinner one night, on our Heritage Farm ground beef patties I purchased. The Applewood bacon was a thicker cut, but cooked just as well in the oven. Its smokey flavor was good, but not as good as the center cut :)
Still though, hands down the best bacon. ever.
On a special day, me and my son made Psst...'s Brownie Mix and we of course loved these! They were easy to make and came out perfectly delicious! I like that their recipe on the back gives you the option to make regular brownies, cake like brownies, or brownie cookies.

The HemisFares pasta, are Italian made noodles ready to prepare. I used my free coupon to review the Orecchiette Little Ear Shaped Pasta. These pasta shapes were inspired by the roofs of ancient Apulian houses, called trulli. What a fun fact! The noddles weren't as good as I expected them to be... but they ended up tasting great in my homemade pasta casserole.
It was a lot of fun trying all of these foods. I will continue purchasing the many Kroger family brand foods as I have found gems in each and every one. Go to your nearest Kroger store and check out all their options. They're not only delicious. but more affordable too!

I received a pair of the Caterpillar Clogs to review, and I just love the way they look! These shoes are really fun and bring all kinds of attention from both children and adults! They are unlike any other shoes, because the caterpillar design is just too cute! they would make a great gift for children with Summer birthdays, or something to put in the Easter basket.

Because these shoes are waterproof and made for indoor or outdoor, they are great shoes for water parks or the beach. With Summer right around the corner, the caterpillar clogs are perfect for the warmer weather!

MagiKuchen's Stainless Steel Fine Mesh Strainer


Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own. 

Whether it's straining and rinsing pasta, rice, beans, fruits or vegetables, you need a good strainer to get the job done thoroughly. With MagiKuchen's Stainless Steel Fine Mesh Strainer you can strain many things at the quality you deserve!


MagiKuchen's Stainless Steel Fine Mesh Strainer is made of premium quality 18/8 stainless steel that is 100% rust resistant, making it durable enough to last you the years to come. It is strong and secure with a heat resistant gripped handle so you can strain many foods, including hot pastas and stock. This strainer is 8 inches across with a supporting ring to hold in place, made to fit over saucepans and bowls for easy straining. It is 100% dishwasher safe and easily cleans with hand washing too.

So far I am loving my MagiKuchen's Stainless Steel Strainer! Its size fits perfectly in my stove pot, and strains foods beautifully. It hasn't rusted and has gone through the dishwasher without problems! I am very pleased with this, as previous metal strainers we've purchased, tended to rust quickly and not be as durable. The quality of the MagiKuchen's strainer seems like it holds to its word and will last me a long time. I really like its handle, as it has a secure non slip grip and wont get overheated from straining hot foods. I also like that it has a hole in the tip of it for easy hanging. 


If you're looking for a high quality strainer to add to your kitchen, I definitely recommend this one.
You can find the MagiKuchen's Stainless Steel Fine Mesh Strainer available for purchase on Amazon for $21.99 for a black handled strainer, or $19.99 for a green handled one. Each strainer comes with a satisfaction money back guarantee so if you're not 100% satisfied they will give you your money back!

New Costumes Means The Dementor is Here!

Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own.

Having a child who loves dressing up as super heroes or scary creatures means he has a love for getting new costumes to try! As part of the costume reviewers, I was able to choose a new costume for my son to review, and he picked the Dementor Child from Harry Potter.

The Dementor Child is a scary looking creature from Harry Potter that sucks the life and happy experiences out of people, leaving them feeling hopeless and sad. This sounds like a horrible thing for kids to even know about, so I wasn't sure on letting my son review this, but when he told me what a Dementor does, I thought it was too funny to not let him. He is 7 years old, and said to me "A Dementor kisses people to their death." and went on to show me what they do, with their kissy faces and everything haha. It was hilarious! So I figured I would let him receive the harmless ghoul of a character. 

The Dementor Child costume comes from The Costume Super Center for a regular price of $29.99 but often have deals to get it on sale. (Follow CSC on Twitter for deals and costume ideas. And Click here for all the costume choices.) The Dementor Child costume includes the long black robe that has tattered edges and lengthy sleeves to look eery, and is made of polyester. It has a skeletal shaped chest piece that is made of foam, and a ghoulish mask to mimic the Dementor's haunting expression. 

It is available in Medium (8-10) and Large (12-14) Sizes. 
I chose the medium size for my son and it fits him well, although he says the chest piece would be better if it was smaller. He was a little dissapointed with the mask, as it is not made as well as the picture on the package shows, but otherwise, he still likes it. He waited everyday, for the costume to arrive. As soon as it did, he put it on! It goes best with all black clothing, so it blends together to complete the eery shadow of a look. If you have a child who is in to Harry Potter and mythical creatures, then this costume would be perfect for them!  Plus without the mask, you become, a "headless horseman" as my son said! :) He had a lot of fun reviewing this costume!


This post is made possible by Costume Super Center and the Costume Reviewers Admin 
for providing me the above costume in exchange for my honest review. All opinions my own.

Dream Dots - Treatment Patches For Breakouts


Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own.

If you have a 'spot' problem, especially in the case of a big event, or you unexpectedly breakout with a blemish...Apply a Dream Dot and say goodbye to that pesky spot!

Dream Dots are made to clear breakouts, while calming, purifying and healing your skin, giving it the protection it needs while aiding in a quicker recovery. The Dream Dot is a super absorbent hydro matrix patch that targets spot breakouts overnight and is said to give you dramatically effective results. The sticker applies easily to your blemish and acts as a second skin conforming to your face. It's breathable, smooth, and hardly noticeable. The way it works is when you place the dot over your pore, it seals over and gets to work. The patch will slightly swell and turn white overnight, as a sign that it is working. When you wake up, remove the patch and notice the dots effect that has taken place. Your blemish should be less sensitive and noticeably diminished.



I was excited to received the Dream Dots to review, especially to have on hand for a wedding I will be going to soon. The first day I received my pack of Dream Dots, I applied one at night to give it a try. I let it sit on my blemish for a total of 9 hours and took it off in the morning. I was hopeful, and expecting my blemish to be gone...but it was still there. After the patch was off for a few minutes, I noticed the redness had diminished some and the swelling was down so that the blemish was a little more tolerable and easier to conceal. With using another patch that following night, I found that when removing in the morning, the blemish had came to head, so it could heal properly. I have been using these Dream Dots for any blemish that I deem needs it, and though I haven't seen them work miracles to completely fade my blemish, in time they have seemed to help a little bit.

You can find Dream Dots available for purchase on Amazon in a box of 24 for $17.95 or a double pack of 48 for $29.95

The Francois et Mimi Vintage French Coffee Press


Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own. 

Are you looking for an easy way to brew your own coffee at home, 
and it gives you that rich café taste?

The Francois et Mimi Vintage French Coffee Press brews up to 34oz. of coffee at a time, and leaves your coffee tasting exquisite. Its custom vintage design has a double wall feature that keeps your drink hot for longer, as well as a dribble proof spout to make pouring easier. It is dishwasher safe and made of heavy duty stainless steel.

I was amazed at the size of the French Press!
Its gorgeous image makes it the perfect coffee holder for parties and get togethers. Not only can it make delicious coffee, but it would also make the perfect loose-tea pitcher for a tea party! It's easy to use and gets coffee done in a jiff.
You begin by adding in your preferred amount of coffee grounds, they suggest coarse ground coffee as finer ground will clog the system, and about one tablespoon per 4oz cup of hot water. Once you have your desired amount of water, up to 34oz, in the coffee press, you place the plunger on and let it rest for about 5 minutes. Then you slowly yet firmly press the plunger down until it reaches the bottom, and your coffee is ready to enjoy!!
This was so easy to make, you can repeat as often as needed.


You can find The Francois et Mimi Vintage French Coffee Press available for purchase on Amazon for $39.95 with free shipping and it comes with Amazon's 30 day return.
