Tortillas in the Toaster


Living in an apartment that has no air conditioner, on a hot Summer day, can be very arduous. 
So I've been trying to find different ways to make our dinner, without needing to heat up the oven! I usually take a day to make the meat, enough for the week or at least a few days, then each day I try to make anything else I need for our dinner that day, in the morning. For tonight's dinner, I made tacos, but this time I wanted my tortillas crispy. But I didn't want to turn on the stove top, just to fry up some burritos, so I put my mind to work... 
'If we can toast bread in a toaster....why not toast tortillas too?!'


The kind of toaster I have is a 4 slice toaster so it could fit medium size tortillas in. All you do is fold tortilla in half, and place it on one side of the toaster, and another tortilla on the other and toast as you would bread! I wasn't sure how long to toast them for, so I watched the first two toast on a 2, and they needed a bit more toasting so I popped them down again. Watching until I see the edges bubbling and browning and I popped them up. The second two I toasted, I thought I had this down so I started fixing the meats for the tortillas. Remembering I was toasting tortillas...I shot around to the toaster just in time to pop the tortillas up and found they were slightly burnt and next thing I know, the smoke detector is going off! {oops} So make sure you keep watch at the tortillas toasting so you don't risk burning them ;) You can toast your tortillas to your preference, then place the meat fixings into them and your dinner is ready! So simple and it barely even heats the kitchen up.
Not to mention they taste amazing too!

The Amazing 4 Banana Toothbrush for Baby


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




Perfect for babies beginning to grow teeth,
The Amazing 4 Banana Toothbrush is not only adorable, but is also great for training little ones
to keep their teeth clean.

The brush's soft rubber material is made of food grade silicone that is hypoallergenic and resistant to bacteria, making it safe for use. It will not scratch or hurt their gums, as the brush is soft and pliable, great for massaging teething pain away.

 I love the squishyness of this banana tooth brush. Although it is smaller than I expected, it is gentle on your little ones gums, with a big enough brush to give those little teeth and gums a cleaning massage.

This toothbrush is perfect for little ones learning to brush their own teeth. They will have fun using it, and may even pretend it has a fun banana flavor!

Though it has no taste or smell, it is still a fun toothbrush to use. Whether using it on your baby's gums, in training to brush, or on your pet, this adorable toothbrush gets the job done.

You can find the Banana Toothbrush available for purchase on Amazon 
for just $6.49 and free shipping with Prime or on orders over $35.

Bonafide Baby's Blue Chevron Baby Car Seat Cover


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


When you're baby is in his car seat, he is exposed  to sunlight, possible flying insects, or airborne germs, and a chilly breeze.
With Bonafide Baby's Blue Chevron Baby Car Seat Cover, you can keep your little one protected
by using a cover that attaches directly on to the car seat. The cover contains adjustable straps that attach with Velcro, to fit all car seats perfectly. It folds up for easy storage so you can take it with you in your diaper bag or purse for handy use whenever it is needed. The cover also doubles as a blanket, with its soft plush underside, made of a blend of polyester and cotton,
to keep baby warm and comfortable.


 This car seat cover is soft and easy on babies skin. I love how comfortable it feels and that it can be used as a blanket, and also works well as a changing mat to lay your little one on. It can be used for tummy time as well, using either side. Having Velcro straps to hold the cover in place is genius! Much better than placing a blanket on top. The Velcro straps will keep the cover in place without fear of any wind blowing it away, and it will keep the wind or bugs getting to baby. It folds up nicely and can fit inside your diaper bag for easy access. This is a great product to have. Plus it comes with a free Stroller Hook - a $10.95 value- that works great to hold your purse, diaper bag, shopping bags, ect. on the stroller or even a shopping cart! This would be a fantastic gift to purchase for baby showers.




You can find the Blue Chevron Baby Car Seat Cover available to purchase on Amazon 
for $21.95 also available in pink and gray.

My Silk NutriBullet House Party #SmoothieSocial #sponsored

Disclaimer: I received the following product for free in exchange for my honest review. All opinions my own. 

   I recently had the opportunity to throw a House Party with Silk and NutriBullet and have been so pleased with it all! My kit was full of amazing products like Silk Mason Jar Mugs, Coupons, recipe books, bamboo spoons, measuring cups, ice cube trays, a cutting board, magnets, SuperFood packs...
Plus I received a NutriBullet Pro 900 to review!

   I have always seen and heard about NutriBullet's and how awesome they are, so I was very pleased that I got to review a NutriBullet Pro 900 for myself!! I knew right away I would love this new product in my kitchen. Beforehand, I've always used a juicer and hated the idea of wasting all that fruit and veggie pulp. I knew there had to be away we could soak up all the goods from the fruit and veggies we're grinding up, and NutriBullet solved that problem for me! And it is SO easy to use!
Adding in whatever produce you want, with
some ice and water, or delicious Silk milk products, placing the lid on and letting the bullet blend it all into a delicious and healthy drink with no foods being wasted. It's like a dream come true. And even the clean up afterward is so simple. The NutriBullet has truly become my new best friend. I love the benefits in using it, as I can now intake the much needed fruit and vegetables I need each day. I've felt so much better since having the NutriBullet, it's a product I definitely recommend.

   In using the NutriBullet, you need a liquid to mix with all those fruits and veggies, and that's where Silk comes in! Silk makes a great variety of milks to choose from. They have Soy, Almond, Cashew, and Coconut. I love how versatile Silk Almond Milk is. 
You can drink it by itself, you can use it in baking, and you can make delicious smoothies with it. Almond milk is a great way to get in extra fiber, Vitamin E, and more Calcium, as it contains 50% more Calcium than dairy milk! It is also a great alternative to those who have lactose sensitivities, like myself. I am a lover of the creamy milky drinks, so having Almond milk to substitute has made me happier all around. Plus it makes amazing smoothies! It's creamy, yet nutty flavor, pairs well with a lot of fruits and vegetables, giving you a luscious drink filled with the nutrients your body craves. I love getting to experiment and mix around different ideas using my Silk Almond milk. It is a drink I will continue buying!

I had a lot of fun hosting my Silk NutriBullet House Party. We made amazing drinks, from sweet to tart, and everything in between. But a favorite of the night was the Orange Dream Machine smoothie, an idea that came from Jamba Juice! For this drink you need Orange juice or Orange slices, Orange Sherbet ice cream, Vanilla Silk Milk, ice & optional Vanilla yogurt! I would say this drink is a bit on the "unhealthier" list, but you can adjust it to be healthier by omitting the sherbet and using frozen vanilla yogurt instead, with several fresh orange slices. You could even add in a handful of carrots if you'd like!
In using the NutriBullet Pro 900, there are several drink ideas to be made.
You will never grow tired of using this amazing product, and your body will thank you for all the extra fruits and veggies it is getting, that it may not be getting without it. I know it has sure made a difference for me!

When you're trying to get pregnant, or suspect you might be, you want to know as soon as possible whether you are pregnant or not. With the First Response new Early Response Twist Pregnancy Test, you can test as early as 6 days before your missed menstrual period. This is the only test that allows you to find out this early, as it is sensitive enough to capture the very scant amounts of the
pregnancy hormone. That makes this test the top #1 test, as finding out your pregnant as early as possible is best for you and your baby. You can take necessary precautions needed to care for the growing child inside you, by getting adequate prenatal care and following a healthy diet
to make sure your baby will get the nutrition it needs to grow.

With the First Response Early Response Twist Pregnancy Test, it has a new and improved handle, that is made longer with a curve that fits better in your hand, and a 50% wider tip for an easier target, as well as a large, easy to read window displaying two lines if you're pregnant, one line if you're not. The test is over 99% accurate and you will
get the results in 3 minutes.

The test is very easy to use, you can either pee directly on the tip of the stick, holding it in your urine stream for 5 seconds, or you can pee in a cup and dip the tip of the stick into the urine for 5 seconds. After 3 minutes your results will show!
                   So easy to use!

My Sonder Tape Dispenser


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


If you go through a lot of tape in your household, the My Sonder Tape Dispenser is an excellent product to have. Its lightweight and compact design sits on desks without taking up too much space, helping you get your jobs done quicker. Great for crafting, wrapping presents, or just the every day need of tape use, it's an ideal product to have, and even comes with a roll of transparent tape. 

I love the size of this tape dispenser. It's smaller then my hand, and with its foam bottom, it sits nicely on the desk without taking up a lot of space. The foam keeps it from slipping around, and the tape pulls out easily. I can see the ease in using this tape dispenser when doing projects that require a lot of tape, like wrapping presents!

I needed this just a week before it arrived, as it would have been so helpful in wrapping my sons many birthday presents lol. But this is a great tape dispenser, and I love that it comes with two rolls of tape so it's ready to use. And it will be used, in lots of future crafting :)

You can find the My Sonder Tape Dispenser available for purchase on Amazon for just $7.99 and free shipping with Prime or on orders over $35, with a Money Back Guarantee.

Better Posture With The PillowEase Coccyx Seat Cushion


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

Sitting with good posture is good for your long term health and helps prevent pain you may face down the road as you age, but sometimes it can be hard to sit with our backs straight, especially if the chair you're sitting in doesn't give you very good support.

With the PillowEase Coccyx Seat Ergonomic Cushion, it is made to help you sit up straight,
by repositioning the lower back and taking the pressure off of your spine. The medically proven "U" shape of this cushion provides the support you need while sitting, as it reduces pressure, improves circulation, and prevents swelling or discomfort.
This makes it the prefect pillow for those with tailbone or hip problems such as sciatica, pelvic pain, hip bursitis, hernias, hemorrhoids, pressure ulcers, and post  surgical recovery. The pillow is also very versatile, as it can be used behind your back for lumbar support, under your head for a comfy cushion, or beneath your feet to prop them up and relieve discomfort. It can be used on any surface or in any chair, including wheel chairs!

    The PillowEase Coccyx Seat Cushion is also great for those long road trips or flights, desk jobs where you sit most of the day,
and just for an everyday use to relieve the lower pains you may feel and improve your posture. There are many reasons to use this seat cushion, and you will find your body will love the extra comfort. The great thing about this cushion is that the cover is removable! With just an easy unzip, you can remove the hypoallergenic plush velour zip cover and throw it in the wash. My cushion came with two covers, in black and in gray, so I can choose which I'd like to use. I chose to have mine covered in the black cover to match our chair better. I store the gray cover
on the cushion, just under the black cover so if I ever want to switch it up, I know where it is!

   We have been using our PillowEase Coccyx Seat Cushion on our computer desk chair and have found its wonderful benefits, in giving us better posture, and adding a firmer cushion to our seat. The thick memory foam has been sturdy and very firm use after use, without it depleting in thickness. It gives us more comfort in sitting for long periods of time, working or doing schoolwork. We've enjoyed
using it so far, it's been a great cushion to have!

You can find the PillowEase Coccyx Seat Cushion available for purchase on Amazon for $35.99 with free shipping and it comes with a 12 month money back guarantee. You can also find them at www.pillowease.com and on Facebook. And if you purchase a PillowEase cushion before June 31st, you can get $8 off by using code: BLOG8888

My son loves the Car-Go Toy bag.

Though the drawstring becomes extra long when the bag is closed, there is a little pocket compartment on the side that you tuck the drawstring in to and Velcro it shut for added safety and storage. With the handle on the side, it makes carrying easy and perfect for traveling. The storage bag is great for keeping toys organized and put away! Plus the car design on the material is so cute, it brings lots of play and imagination!
