The tree has 56 branch tips and a 12 inch diameter, and looks exactly like the pictures show, with a vibrant green color. It comes with its own little stand of 3 legs to attach, folds out easily for display, or folds back up well for storage, taking up little space.

Mama's, Get Hands-Free Pumping With The BeliBea Nursing Bra




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




When you're a breast feeding mama, you want the most comfort and convenience out of your everyday products, including during nursing your little one, and pumping. With The BeliBea Bra you can have the ultimate comfort you deserve, while making the nursing life easier on yourself with a hands-free approach, or combining both nursing your baby and pumping at the same time. The BeliBea Bra is a convenient nursing bra made with two panels on each breast, so you can easily unclip the first layer to nurse, or use the interior layer to hold your pump in place so you can use your hands for other things, such as catching up on text messages or emails, reading a good book, or caring for your baby at ease.

The BeliBea bra combines the best of the traditional maternity bra's with a more improved feminine shape to give a custom fit to reach better comfort. It is made of stretchy ultra soft material (92% Nylon, 8% Spandex, 100% Polyester foam cup) that is seamless and stretches to fit, with a ribbed band to provide flexible support and accommodates any change your breasts may experience in fullness. The bra has a V-neck scoop in the center with a ruching design so you won't have a "uni-boob" look that many sports bras tend to give you, and it has adjustable straps to support the size you need.

This bra is amazingly soft, I think all breastfeeding mama's will love it! I love how it stretches and accommodates to your needs in the ever shifting breast sizes while nursing. The clasps are easy to unclip, allowing for easy nursing or pumping, and it can be used with most breastfeeding pumps. The BeliBea Bra would make a great gift to new mothers, or a gift to yourself if you are a breastfeeding mama! My only dislike for this bra, is that I wish it was available in other colors. Beige is not my favorite :)


You can find BeliBea Bra's available in sizes Small through X-Large, and comes with removable pads between the cup panels that offer extra support, comfort, and shape.

Helps Kids Publish Their Own Comic Books With Lulu Jr.!!


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

Do you have a little one interested in comics and book making? Lulu Jr. allows children to create their own books and comics, becoming a published author and artist. Through Lulu Jr. your child receives their kit to begin creating a book, personally all done by them! In the "My Comic Book" kit, it contains: ready-to-use page templates, washable markers, an artist pen, pencil, and eraser. As well as a how to guide, instructions, order form, and a postage-paid envelope. Your child will write and illustrate their very own comic book, 16 pages full plus a front and back cover!












 

 My son loves making books. Ever since he was 3, he has told us he wanted to be a book maker, so to receive this kit was awesome! We went through the instructions and my son browsed the how-to guide, getting ideas for what he wanted to make his book on. He decided to go with is own imagination and make a comic book on the "Series" he's been doing. I think he was a bit overwhelmed by all the possibilities, and with his want to fill every nook and cranny of the page, but slowly he's been getting through and can't wait until it's finished. This will be a dream come true for him, publishing his own book!



Once my son completes his comic, we will send it in to the company, wait for the arrival of the finished product and will update this post once it does. We can't wait!!

Lulu Jr. is an amazing service for children, perfect for ages 8 and up. It builds creativity and self esteem while strengthening literacy and helping the child see his great potential. At just $29.99 you can make a child's dream come true!!! Check out www.lulujr.com to view the book making kits and other info. You can also visit Lulu Jr. on Facebook and Twitter.




UPDATE: The comic itself has arrived! It is thinner that I was expecting, but I'm not sure why I expected anything thick, since this is the size of an actual comic book. I feel like I could have just stapled my sons papers together and it would be pretty similar to the actual finished product, but it's ok and the color of the final print is good. Here are two pictures from his final comic outcome:

Super Easy 4 Ingredient Cake Waffles


We are a family that loves waffles, (hence the title of my blog) so when I found an easier way to make waffles here at home, I had to give it a try. With just 4 ingredients, you can have waffles made within minutes!!

To make these easy, 4 ingredient waffles, you need the following ingredients:

3 Eggs
1/3 Cup of Oil
1 1/3 Cups of Water
1 Box of Cake Mix  

Heat your waffle iron and mix all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Once there are no clumps and your waffle iron is ready to bake, spray compartment with cooking spray and dollop on enough batter for your waffle iron to make a whole waffle. Close lid and let it do the job! You will have beautiful and delicious dessert waffles within minutes!! You can experiment with different Boxed Cake Mix to try different waffle flavors. So far I have used Devil's Food Cake Mix and Red Velvet Cake Mix, both equally good. 



So there you have it, delicious and easy waffles your whole family will love!!

Straight Up Tasty {Book Review}


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

I am one of the many people who has enjoyed watching the famous food show "Man Vs. Food" so when I heard that a cookbook was made by the true Man Vs. Food Champ, I was so excited to get my hands on it! Straight Up Tasty Meals, Memories, and Mouthfuls from My Travels is written by Adam Richman himself, inspired by his travels around the world and his 'lifelong dedication to seeking out memorable flavors and eating experiences'. This book holds more than 100 recipes and flavor combinations, along with different techniques and ingredients that Adam has learned through all his traveling throughout the years. He shares of his journey and the things he has learned and puts them into easy to understand recipes that we can experience and make in our own homes.

I love how homey this cookbook is, filled with the experiences and photos of Adam's journey's throughout, and that he shares some interesting facts and recipes, as well as better ways to cook different foods. It's also very helpful that Adam has lists of great places to try different foods if you're traveling in certain locations as well The photos are exciting to see, and I loved reading the stories that were written with each photo, including the photo of Adam sitting next to his fridge with all the states magnets he's collected over the years. This cookbook is filled with an amazing variety of recipes and would make a terrific gift for those Man Vs. Food lovers!!

First Year Soft Cloth Baby Books for Infants


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

   Starting early, reading to your little ones, brings close bonding and a powerful sensory experience
 to helping babies learn and stimulate their minds. With the First Years Soft Cloth baby books, your little one can hold the book in their hands and feel the silky fabric while learning new words, sounds, shapes, letters, and animals! Your baby will love to be read to, and get to push a little squeaker inside the book, playing and having a great time!


   I believe reading to your child at a very young age stimulates their mind and helps them grow into people that love to read. It will help them have a better process in learning, and gain a bigger interest and focus on things around them. These soft cloth books are perfect for starting out with, as your babe can hold them, chew the edges, squeak the toy inside, and enjoy the beautiful images in each book. And after all that wear and tear of using these books, they can be thrown in the washing machine to keep them clean and free of germs!


   You could even take the books into the baby's bath and the colors won't fade. The stitching seems
 durable so the books will last, and your little one will learn about the ABC's and 123's, shapes and colors, and many Animals around the world. These are great books to get your baby, or to give as a baby shower gift!

Skas Marketing, and Their TRASH. - Disappointed Review


Yet another company that has failed to follow through...

Skas Marketing, and their Stainless Steel Step Trash Can.

   After they approved me to review their product, I was sent a code that was to expire so soon,
I didn't even have time to check my messages for the code and make a purchase. After emailing to explain the situation, I was sent another code. This code did not work. After several attempts of emails to the company with no responses, I am left, stuck with this space to fill, just so I don't get a negative mark on my Tomoson review account status. 

Nothing to say about this trash can since I didn't receive it for a review... But reading some of those 1 star reviews on Amazon are pretty funny! Especially when you work with a company that betrays you. This compact, stainless steel, skid free trash can holds trash. So in this company goes!




{I NEVER received product mentioned above in using Tomoson.com. }

When A Company Falls Through...


What do you do when you're stuck with a review to fulfill and the
 company doesn't send you the product to review? 

After several attempts of emails to the company with no responses, I am left, stuck with this space to fill, just so I don't get a negative mark on my review account status. This problem has seemed to be increasing, not just with me, but with other bloggers too. A company selects you to review their product and either gives you a code to purchase said item, or they ship it to you themselves. You wait weeks for the item to arrive...and it never does. Or the code the company has given you...doesn't work. And the refuse to respond to your emails. This is such poor quality in the company. Their unprofessional attitude makes me worried how they might treat their paying customers! Sometimes the negative reviews on said company go unnoticed. But I am another blogger who sits here, wanting to let you know, there are some shady companies out there, so just be careful. 


Here are a few of my posts on some certain companies that 
have shown their unprofessional management:

SOI Co. Soy Candle
StickerHub Stickers
Work Toys: Bo-Po Nail Polish
OzNaturals  Ocean Mineral Facial Tonic
Skas Marketing Stainless Steel Trash Can

I will add more as they come, because unfortunately, they will come as long as I am

Start Painting With The US Art Supply Small Canvas Multi-Pack


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

If you are an artist or a painter, or you are the parent of one, you know how important it is to have Canvas on hand. But they can be pretty pricey items to stock up on! I recently was introduced to the US Art Supply, and they have more affordable canvas packs to purchase for all your painting uses. I received the Prime Gesso Stretched Small Canvas Multi-Pack for this review and it is wonderful! This multi-pack kit came with 10 assorted small sized canvases. There are two of each size: 4x4, 5x7, 8x10, 9x12, and 11x14, all with professionally stretched canvas stapled on the reverse side, with clean edges and great stability. 

This is the perfect set for budding artists. My son loves everything art and has just started enjoying the idea of painting, especially to make art for his walls. Each canvas is the perfect size for different projects and they are proven to be very durable. The canvas was placed into the frame using professional stretching equipment and has a medium textured duck canvas that has been primed with acid-free acrylic gesso so it can be used with oil or acrylic paint. It soaks the paint up nicely, making a beautiful piece of art you can hang on your wall. This is such a great deal on purchasing canvases so if you're hunting for a variety of sizes, I highly recommend these. The quality is great at such a great price!

You can find the US Art Supply Small Canvas Multi-Pack of 10 available for purchase on Amazon for just under $30.

Cozy Up With Scentiments Scented Soy Candles


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

    With Fall and Winter season right around the corner, it's the best time to start stocking up on those delicious smelling candles! They not only add comfort and light to your house, but they also help heat up the atmosphere adding a little warmth and coziness.

    Scentiments Soy Candles are great candles to have as they are handmade with 100% USA soy wax and high quality essential oils to give off the best fragrance. Plus the candles are in traditional glass mason jars with a little quote on each, great for a family member, a friend or a sister, even a Happy Birthday, giving them a cute, rustic, and homey feeling everyone can enjoy!
    
I love my Scentiment Soy Candle! I chose the Family Candle in the scent Vanilla.. The quote on my candle says "FAMILY where life begins and love never ends" very sweet and would make a great gift to give a loved one. The decor of the candle jar matches most home decors, as it's a neutral flowery cover, would look great in just about any room! And it comes with a gift tag attached, for easy gifting. I love the smell as it is very comforting and potent across the room. I also love that the candle is made of soy, as it is much better for you and the environment. I would love to try the other scents: Cinnamon, Lavender, and Cool Cotton. 



You can find Scentiments Soy Candles available for purchase on Amazon for $14.37 a candle and it comes with a 30 day 100% money back guarantee.

Ohuhu 5-Level Non-Woven Fabric Storage Wardrobe Closet


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

    If you need more space to store you clothes, or your lacking a storage closet, the Ohuhu 5-Level Cloth Storage Wardrobe Closet will give you extra shelf space, and a place to hang some extra shirts, dresses, pants, or coats.

The closet measures at 53" (W) x 18" (D) x 68" (H) so you have plenty of space to store clothing, toys, shoes, books, and more! The closet has a roll down cover that zips shut to keep any dust out, and hides away what you might not want visible, or you can choose to have it rolled up for easier access. You could even choose to not have the cover on, but I feel this takes away some if the closets stability.

The frame is made of metal and each shelf is of breathable PE coated non-woven fabric that is pretty durable, able to hold many things without tearing the fabric. There are 11 cubicle/shelves with a large open space in the middle, and a hanging rack for hanging a few things up.

   When I received the package, it arrived in a large box filled with the metal poles, the plastic pieces to secure closet together, the non-woven fabric, and the very difficult to understand instructions. I immediately went to work building this closet, first starting out organizing my pieces to their direct number. Only one set of poles had a number on them, so I just had to kind of guess by measurements which poles were what. It took me several tries to figure out how the pieces went together correctly and once I completed it, I felt like it shouldn't have been that hard to put together, but I think the directions confused me extremely. There are no words on the directions so you have to build the closet based on the picture. What should have been easy, took me what felt like hours to put together. But once I got it, the closet seems mostly sturdy, especially with the cover over it. 

    The closet is much larger than I expected, which is great if you have the space for it, so you can hold many items needed. This is especially good if you're on the hunt for a portable closet because your room doesn't have one. The fabric that holds as shelves is a lot sturdier then I expected also, so you can hold a good amount of folded clothes on it. But the hanging rod doesn't allow you to hold many items, as it will become too top heavy. I chose to hang bags of socks and lightweight undergarments on the rod, and it has held up just fine. The shelves are also holding up well!

This is a pretty good portable closet, so if you're in the market for one, I would recommend one like this. Just be wary that it may be difficult to put it together at first. Otherwise, it's a good product and perfect for people needed extra closet space, or those that move a lot! 

You can find the Ohuhu 5-Level Cloth Storage Wardrobe Closet available 
for purchase on Amazon for $47.99 with free shipping.
