Gold Pigeon Shoes 8160-Elangt Womens Flip Flops


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


Gold Pigeon makes amazing shoes for the entire family, so our feet can be ready for summer! 


These unique and stylish sandals are made of rubber, with a cushioned, shock-absorbing midsole and a nonskid outer soles that ensures traction while preserving floors. Their textured insole provides a grip, making them non-skid and slip resistant. They are also waterproof and very easy to clean!


The Golden Pigeon's Elangt flip flops 
are engraved with a 3D blossom and butterfly print, with rhinestones securely embedded into the straps, giving them a beautiful touch to your Spring and Summer wardrobe. 


 I love how adorable these flip flops are. 
They are perfect for the warm summer days ahead of us! The soles in these flip flops are comfortable with a nice grip so if you get sweaty or wet feet, your feet shouldn't slip around as easily as they would in other flip flops. 


I love that they are washable and slip resistant, so they are great for wearing around the pool. The design goes with most Summery outfits and the colors mesh well together.  


I received a size 7, which fit perfectly but they were a little too narrow for my wide feet. If you don't have wide feet to worry about, then these sandals are really great and I'm sure you would find them cute and durable, last for several summers to come!


Visit Gold Pigeon Shoes for many shoe options, where you can also find the pair I received for this review, available for purchase at $34.99 available in the color choices of Brown or Fuchsia. You can also find them on Amazon.

Freezing Foods with the Silicone Baby Food Freezer Tray


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

Looking for a good way to store extra breast milk or premade baby food?
Or maybe broth from a stew, that you might want to use again...

The Silicone Baby Food Freezer Tray contains easy to remove portion pods that allow you to freeze any liquified food or drink, and pop out the frozen solid easily and free of messes. The tray even comes with a clip-on lid to secure your food inside, without worry of it leaking out from the top. This makes it perfect for freezing homemade baby foods, breast milk, ice pops, soups, and more! It can also be used as a chocolate mold or for making cupcakes in. Anything food items you can think of, can be baked, froze, and stored, in this fun freezer tray!


 I made a pureed smoothie of juice, spinach, berries and yogurt then froze it in my cool Silicone Freezer Tray. It was really easy to do, just blending the ingredients, then pouring the liquid into each compartment and placing the lid on to freeze. I found the lid needs some extra pushing along the edges to make sure it's secure, and once it is, the tray sits nicely in my freezer. Because the silicone is pretty thick, you do not need to place something beneath it, as the tray itself is pretty sturdy. But you definitely want to lay it on something flat so your liquid freezes evenly. I left the tray in my freezer overnight, to find perfectly each little pod of puree was perfectly frozen.


I popped each little compartment out and found the tray to work awesomely. Each pod held its shape! Once they were all out, I placed the pods in a freezer bag for future use and have loved the ease of grabbing a pod when I need it! This silicone freezer tray is a really handy piece to have in all kitchens. I love the fact that you can use it for many food and drink items! It will make the perfect size Popsicles in the Summer, and soups in the winter. But my favorite use, it to stock up on smoothie extras!

Silicone Baby Food Freezer Tray is made of high quality food grade silicone, free of harmful toxins, phthalates, PVC, and nitrosamine. It has been FDA approved and is BPA free. You can find it available for purchase on Amazon for $16.95 and comes with a 100% lifetime satisfaction guarantee.

Baking With Morning Pep's Blanched Almond Flour


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


Morning Pep Blanched Almond Flour is made from finely ground skinless almonds that have been blanched, giving a moist texture and rich buttery flavor to many breads and desserts. It is chocked full of protein and dietary fiber, while being low in carbohydrates and rich in calcium, iron, and magnesium. Almond flour is a good gluten free substitute, because it has a similar taste and feel of wheat, and gives you savory flavor, and a rich and smooth texture.

You can use Almond Flour as a substitute for wheat flour, used in cakes, breads, cookies, muffins and more! You can even use it to bread meats or vegetables! Almond flour is so versatile and healthy for you. I have never tried Almond Flour before this, so I did some researching on how it's used and in what foods. I found everyone saying you can use it just like you do flour. So I found an easy pancake recipe to use my Almond Flour in and it wasn't as easy as I expected. The pancake batter was a different consistency from the ground almonds, and it seemed to cook a lot faster then normal. So I decided to turn that pancake batter into a glass pan to bake, and the pancake squares came out perfect. Almond flour will give your food a nutty taste, making it delicious to eat with chocolate spread! 



I love that Almond Flour is a good source of fiber and is really good for you. I can't wait to make more delicious pastries and breads. I like that each bag has a resealable top, although somehow I ruined mine and it wont seal back, so when you open the bag for the first time, do so very carefully :) I have been storing my Almond Flour in the fridge and the bag says it should stay good for up to 12 months in there. I will be making more foods using my Almond Flour, so stay tuned for more posts in the future!

Morning Pep's Almond Flour is 100% all natural, certified kosher, and made of gluten free blanched almonds. It is considered pasteurized by the USDA and The Almond Board of California, with no additives or preservatives. You can find it available for purchase on Amazon, in a 5lb. or a 2lb. bag.

Xtreme Comforts Shredded Memory Foam Pillow


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

Did you know that 70% of people do not like the pillows they sleep on at night, making them lose sleep because of that? Every night, we sleep on our pillows and toss and turn, causing us to wake up with stiff necks and sleepy eyes.

With the Xtreme Comforts Shredded Memory Foam Pillow and Kool-Flow Bamboo Cover you can help eliminate these problems! The pillow shapes to your head and neck, no matter the position you are in, giving you proper support to ensure a better night of sleep. You can mold your pillow in the comfortable position you would like it to be in, and it will never go flat, making it perfect for back, stomach, and side sleepers. It is 100% U.S. made with Certipur-Us certified foam that is hypoallergenic and dust mite resistant, making it great for allergy sufferers also.

This is by far the most comfortable pillow, and the best memory foam pillow I have ever used. When I received it, the pillow was vacuum sealed and rolled for Eco-friendly shipping, and once opened, the pillow inflated into its original size and ultra comfort. I love everything about this pillow. Even the cover is so soft! It is made of Extra Breathable micro-vented Kool-flow technology that is combined with 43% Bamboo, so you can have a cool head all night long. It is said that you can even wash the pillow and it will be as good as new after! Very durable. I really like the Xtreme Comforts pillow..my whole family fell in love with it's squishy comfort, my son decided to claim it as his own haha. Which is fine with me, because he has an extreme dust mite allergy so this pillow is perfect for him. So far, this has been the perfect pillow for us. I am very pleased!

You can find the Xtreme Comforts Shredded Memory Foam Pillow available for purchase on Amazon in 3 different sizes: Queen, King, or Standard. The pillow I received to review is Standard size and is the perfect size for a twin bed.

Foxbrim's Orange Blossom Water Toner


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

Orange Blossom Water Toner will visibly soften wrinkles and scars, will stimulate new cell growth, balance skin tone and oil production, and help fade any facial marks, scars, or skin damage.

This toner is made of 100% pure and natural flower water, with nothing else added so you get all the benefits from the fragrant, skin healing water. It contains natural astringent and anti-microbial properties to provide skin a fresh and balanced feel while removing dirt and oil.

I like the smell of the Orange Blossom Water, although it can be slightly over powering at first. Though taken from the bitter Moroccan orange, it smells nothing like oranges, it has a floral scent, more like the smell of roses. I noticed an instant reaction to my skin, when I first rubbed the toner on. I could see my skin was absorbing it happily and smoothing out the tone. After using it for a few days now, I have noticed my skin has started developing more blemishes. I assume this is because the toner is cleaning my pores out, I just hope it heals them as I'm using it! After about a week of use, I noticed the blemishes diminishing and not producing more so that's a good sign. The toner hasn't caused any burning or painful sensations, it's very soft on the skin. I like that it can also be used in your bath and as aromatherapy.

You can find Foxbrim's Orange Blossom Water Toner available for purchase on Amazon for $17.49, for a 4fl oz bottle.

Discover With Dr. Cool's Ultimate Volcano Science Kit


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

Looking for a fun activity to do with your children? 

Discover With Dr. Cool's Ultimate Volcano Science Kit is filled with tons of fun! Your child gets to make their very own volcano, using plaster of pairs and a volcano mold! Then they get to paint it, and once it's dry, 
you get to watch the volcano erupt!  

My son had a ton of fun making his volcano. It was quite a mess, but kids love a mess! I helped him make the volcano by mixing plaster of paris with water, until it made a nice liquid paste, then I poured it into the volcano mold and we let it dry for about an hour. Before painting, the instructions recommend you let the volcano fully dry for 1-2 days, or you can bake it on 200 degrees for 1-2 hours if you're inpatient :) that is what we did. Then my son painted his volcano and let it dry for another hour. And we started on the eruptions! 1 teaspoon of the included eruption powder, and add water to that for it to bubble up and erupt. Doing this barely even caused a reaction, so we went for baking soda and vinegar and then it was like a true volcano! ;)


My son had a lot of fun with this science kit. Dr. Cool did not disappoint once again. 
I love that with each kit, included is a booklet filled with informational facts for your children, 
as well as some activities included. This makes the perfect kit to purchase for birthdays, 
or even to add some extra fun in homeschooling. 

Discover With Dr. Cool's Ultimate Volcano Science Kit contains everything you need to make your volcano: a Volcano Mold, plaster, paints, brush, eruption powder, and 3 real specimens, which are an arrow head, a geode, and a lava rock. This kit is perfect for kids ages 6-12. It has won several awards including the Gold Award - Family Review Center 2012, Seal of Approval - Family Review Center - 2012, Kids Product of the Year - Creative Child Magazine -2012 and Seal of Approval - and the Toy Directory Monthly 2013. It is another amazing product your children will love!

You can find Discover With Dr. Cool's Ultimate Volcano Science Kit, as well as many other fun kits, available for purchase on discoverwithdrcool.com
or on Amazon for under $20.

Libian Junior Plus Size Scuba Dress


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

This stunning Libian Scuba Dress can be worn any time of the day, flattering your curves and adding beauty to your body. The sleeveless design makes this a great dress for Spring or Summer and you can pair it with a sweater for the breeze, or a nice autumn day. The scooped neck allows the chest to show enough to flaunt a necklace, and the glossy black belt can be worn or removed at your choice. The fun flared bottom drapes nicely off your hips, flowing into knee length making it the perfect length. You can dress it up with a pair or black pumps, or dress it down with open-toe platform wedges. Whatever occasion you choose to wear this dress, you will find it cool, comfortable, and flirty.
I love the look and feel of the Libian Scuba Dress on me. I chose the 2x size and it fits pretty perfectly. JR plus sizes definitely fit differently then women's plus sizes, because even a 1x in women's is way too big for me, but Jr plus runs a bit smaller. I suggest you follow the measurements they give on their Amazon page, and actually measure your body to determine which size will fit you best. I did that, and my selection fits better then the 1x probably would have! The dress flows on my body nicely and the belt accentuates my curves. I added looks my thin white sweater, and love the way it looks! Perfect for spring and summer. It's a very comfortable piece and it's bright vibrant color makes you feel happy! 

The Libian Scuba Dress is made of 90% polyester, 10% spandex and made in the USA by a Libian. It is available in three Jr. Plus sizes: 1x, 2x, or 3x. You can find it available for purchase on Amazon for $27.99 also available in a variety of different colors.

Crayon Crunch Kickstarter-A New Kind of Children's Book!!

The world is full of diversity. We want our children to grow up understanding that, and treating everyone equal no matter what their outer image is. With Crayon Crunch, you can make it easier teaching your children about the differences around the world, and you can also personalize the book to look like them!

What is Crayon Crunch you might ask? It is the most advance picture book invented, so you can personalize your children’s book, choosing how the main character will be, 
including all ethnicities or disabilities. 

“We’re combining new technologies with an original  story to reinvent the picture book,” said Tim  Osterbuhr, Chief Executive Officer. “Instead of working with a publisher, we are using in-house  technology and expertise. This gives us full control over the creative as well as the operational site .”

*'Studies show that reading of personalized books 
encourages language development in young children.'


"The process will be as easy as changing features of characters in a video game. Readers will customize the lead character using the company’s website by choosing between a variety of features from hairstyle and skin tone to clothing and disabilities such as limb differences. Readers can see a preview of the book before they submit the design to Crayon Crunch. The company will then print the book and ship it anywhere in the world. Great characters need great stories, and Crayon Crunch will send your young reader on a gender-neutral journey to find a key for a mystical box in an imaginary world. As a bonus, inside the box is a personalized letter from a parent, family member or friend."

I think this is a great idea and I can't wait to personalize a 
Crayon Crunch book for my own son. 

The Kickstarter starts TODAY May 18, 2015!! 
Go check it out and see how to get your own personalized book!!

iSee Me Personalized Children's Book - Royal Birthday Adventure

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

I recently got the chance to review an iSee My Personalized Children's Book and have been very pleased with it. I chose the Royal Birthday Adventure for Boys book, for my son's upcoming birthday in June. The book has been personalized with his name, as he turns into a birthday knight in a magical birthday kingdom. All throughout the story, the text reads my son's name and illustrates several items of birthday fun including: a 10 tier birthday cake, fireworks in the sky, a royal knight's quarters, a birthday invitation, and more! It's a really fun read filled with birthday cheer.



 The illustration and art work of the book is adorable, while the words are beautifully written. Something my son can cherish forever, and even read on his own at his enjoyment. This 10"x10" book was written by the award winning author Jennifer Dewing and illustrated by Valerie Sokolova. It was made in the USA especially for each birthday child, and is also available in a girl version as well.  iSee Me products make the perfect unique gifts, great for birthdays, baby showers, holidays, and more. You can find not only books, but also personalized puzzles, placemats, stickers, lunch boxes and other fun items.

Yorkshire-Mayfair 1000 Thread Cotton Set of Pillowcases


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


The Yorkshire-Mayfair 1000 Thread Luxury Sateen Standard Pillow Cases Set is made of 100% Egyptian Cotton and is ultra soft and comfy. It is shrinkage proof so it will always stay the same size fitting your pillows. It can be machine washed on cold and tumble dried on low.


I love the comfort and softness of these pillow cases. The Egyptian Cotton sateen texture feels much nicer on my face then typical 100% cottons out there. These pillowcases are very well made, and seem durable so far.
I love that they have many colors to choose from, so you can pick the one that best suits your bedroom theme. I received the color "Baby Blue" for this review and they match my bedroom sheets perfectly. I really like these pillow cases and the comfort they give. I would love to have a whole sheet set!




 You can find the Yorkshire-Mayfair 1000 Thread Luxury Sateen Standard Pillow Cases Set available for purchase on Amazon for $19.99 with free shipping on purchases over $35.

Shower Genius Idea Board


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

How many times have you had genius ideas or thoughts come to you in the shower, but forget what they were once you get out? The Shower Genius Idea Board is made to help prevent forgetting, by being able to jot down your thoughts while in the shower!

The idea board itself is made waterproof, to have the ability to be used in the shower, or under the ocean, so you can write or draw as you please. The height and width of the shower board is made to match the size of a notebook, so it fits any size shower. It attaches to a wet or dry shower wall, with it's polymer hooks, also making it detachable to take with you on travel. 

The Shower Genius Idea Board is perfect for deep thinkers, long shower takers, or children who love to doodle. You can write down anything that comes to mind while showering, without worrying about it getting wet! And your little ones will enjoy taking baths or showers even more, when they have the ability to draw while doing so.

    I love the idea that it brings some silly entertainment in the shower. You can leave love notes to your significant other, or little jokes or drawings for your kids. Your kids will enjoy writing messages or little drawings while bathing, maybe even play tic-tac-toe with their sibling!

   When I first received the Shower Board, I was a bit hesitant on the product and how cheap it looks. It would be a pretty fun idea if the board would stay put where it needs to. The suction cups that come with it, to hang the board in the shower, refused to stay stuck to my shower wall! They last all but one minute, and then it all comes falling down. The sides of the plastic slate (board) are also very sharp like it was poorly cut, so be careful with it around your little ones. The pencil writes on the board easily, much like a stick of eyeliner, and it wipes off well with the microfiber towel included, but I think this invention needs a little sprucing up, especially at this price. It's a great idea and has good potential so if you want to check it out....
You can find the Shower Genius Idea Board available for purchase on Amazon for $19.99 and free shipping on purchases over $35. It also comes with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
