Packing Protein in Yummy Pure Protein Crunch Balls

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

Fueling up with some protein, while enjoying Pure Protein Crunch balls! These little balls make snacking easy with their on-the-go size bags, packing 10 grams of protein, 5g of sugar, and 150-160 calories in every serving. They are made of Non-GMO Gluten free ingredients and hold a crunch in every bite.


These little protein crunch balls are full of flavor, making a great after workout or mid day snack. They are fun to munch on and would be ideal treats to add to homemade trail mix! One of the ways I enjoyed my Pure Protein Crunch Balls, were to mix them up in a banana peanut butter smoothie that I enjoyed after my morning workout. Between the two flavors of Peanut Butter and Dark Chocolate, I surprisingly liked the Peanut Butter balls best. They had a better flavor, and the "protein taste" was more hidden than in the chocolate balls. Overall, these are great little protein snacks, the whole family can enjoy!

You can find Pure Protein Crunch Balls available at Walmart and on Amazon. Also visit them on Facebook and Twitter.

The Illustrated Compendium of Amazing Animal Facts - Book Review

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



 The Illustrated Compendium of Amazing Animal Facts by Maja Safstrom, contains many interesting facts about animals, from reptiles to birds, amphibians to mammals, bugs and more! In the beginning of the book, you will find a list of page numbers with a different animal on each. Each animal has 2 pages dedicated to it with little unknown facts to read on. I will share with you a few of those interesting facts that I learned: Crocodiles actually cry tears when they eat, an octopus has more brain cells than a human, a frog has jumped more than 45 feet at in one jump, and even though a Panda's diet consists of 99% Bamboo, their stomachs were actually designed to eat meat! Those are just a few of the fun facts this book contains. The design of each animal is well drawn out looking adorable as ever. This is a great book for children and adults. You get to see the fun illustrations, and learn about facts you may have never known about before. My son loves this book and we find it very useful for research days in homeschooling.

You can find The Illustrated Compendium of Amazing Animal Facts available for purchase on thepenguinrandomhouse.com and Amazon. Also visit www.majasbok.se for more works by Maja Safstrom, the Stockholm Based Architect and Illustrator who designed this book.

Revalae Cozy Sleeper For Babies


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

The Revelae Cozy Baby Sleeper is perfect for those night time sleeps when your little one needs a diaper change. This nighty is made of 100% Soft Jersey Cotton with a bottom-to-top zipper that zips downward to close and zips up to open, making it great for easy diaper changes. The zipper parts have built in covers so the zipper never touches baby's chin or neck, especially great for winters when the metals tend to get cold. The cover also protects the zipper from poking little ones sensitive skin. And for an even cozier sleep, these sleepers pair well with the Revelae Kids Cozy Blanket Pouches, for extra warmth and comfort.

I love how cute the Revelae Cozy Sleepers are and the ease of using them. And the fact that you can change your little ones diaper without having to completely undress them is such a time saver. The fabric of these sleepers is soft and breathable cotton, making it great for any season. The zippers glide up and down easily, with the covers protecting them so baby can't grab at the zipper or hurt themselves. There are four different designs for this sleeper, each one just as adorable as the other. For my review, I received the Spunky Chevron Sleeper with the design of white, gray, and blue chevron patterns. This is more of a boy tone, but I think it would be suitable for either gender. Your little one will feel snuggled up in their sleeper, keeping their body warm, while also protecting them from nail scratches. This is a great little sleeper and would be a fun gift to give at a baby shower.



You can find the Revelae Cozy Sleeper available for purchase at revalae.com or on Amazon for under $30.

Beautiful Bamboo Duoboard Cutting Board and Serving Tray


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

The Duoboard cutting board and serving tray is great for parties as it can be used to cut and serve specialties such as cheese, meats, veggies, and more. It is made of 100% Premium Bamboo with no added dyes or staining. The cutting board measures at 14" x 11" x 0.75" making it a great size for cutting, and holding appetizers. Because of it being a Duo sized board, it is very versatile for cutting and serving. The cutting side works great to cut medium sized foods such as fruit, vegetables, and cheese and it includes a groove on the sides to catch any stray juices streaming from the foods you cut. The opposite side form the cutting, is the serving tray. It is the darker smooth wood with a rustic touch that displays foods beautifully. Think of displaying your French Breads or sliced Baguettes, lined with cheeses, salamis, prosciutto... It also makes a beautiful backdrop for photos! 



The Duoboard is a beautiful addition to have in your kitchen, and great to display at parties. I really like how beautiful the Bamboo cut is, with a great appearance on the grain. The edge on the cutting side is perfect for keeping mess-free while chopping fruits and vegetables, and the serving side is just gorgeous. I was shocked to read that its rustic beauty is 100% natural, made with a natural carbonized heat-treated process with no stains or paints used. I love the way it smells too. Sort of like a smokey scent. Making it even more delicious serving breads, cheeses, and meats.
The great thing about it being made of bamboo is, though it is dense and strong as other hardwoods, it will resist any knife damage and it will not dull your kitchen knives from cutting. It is also much easier to clean than most other cutting boards, you just quickly wash it with soap and warm water, allowing it to air dry to keep its beauty.

You can find the Dual Purpose Bamboo Cutting/Serving Board available on Amazon for and it comes with a no-hassle lifetime warranty.

Aeromax Jr. Space Explorer Inflatable Space Shuttle


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

      Whether you're looking for some extra pool fun, or just an inflatable toy for your little ones to play on, this Inflatable Space Explorer Space Shuttle by Aeromax Jr. brings all kinds of imagination and fun!
The Space Shuttle is fully designed and detailed with a dashboard that shows a realistic instrument panel and gauges; it even has 3 ingniters in the back like a real shuttle! Every angle of this toy is full of details. There are also QR Codes that can be scanned, so your child can watch videos of real historical launches of rockets, and see them orbit the Earth. This is a very entertaining and interactive toy that also doubles as educational. Great for homeschooling!

I found that the space shuttle was easy to inflate, with three different air pockets to fill. They suggest using your mouth to blow it up, but I used our bike pump and the rocket was inflated within minutes. There were no holes or issues with the rocket, but if a hole were to happen after natural ware and tear, there is a patch included, for easy sealing. The colors of the Space Shuttle are vibrant and well designed. The rocket even has a handle, perfect for kids to hold onto while in the pool.  

My son had instant fun, jumping on the rocket to enjoy its faux buttons and pretend it was scooting across the floor lol. This is such a fun pool toy for those that love anything to do with Space! I love that this Space shuttle can be fun for indoor or outdoor use, even if you do not have a pool to play with it in. As a homeschooling mama, this rocket adds entertainment to a day of learning all about space and astronauts; Bringing excitement and education all in one!

You can find the Aeromax Jr. Space Explorer Inflatable Space Shuttle available for purchase on Amazon for $29.99

Vitafusion Prenatal Vitamin Gummy for Pregnant Women

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

If you are a pregnant mama, or soon to be pregnant, taking Prenatal's is a vital part in keeping your body healthy and getting in the nutrients you need. But so many of those vitamins out there are hard to swallow pills, ones that upset the stomach or feel like a nuisance to take. The Prenatal Gummy Vitamins by Vitafusion are easy to take vitamins packed full of essential vitamins and minerals, such as Vitamins A, C, & D, as well as folic acid and 50mg of Omega-3 DHA. These vitamins have high quality, purified fish oil that has been tested for mercury and PCB's, they are gluten free, and they contain no iron, so they are much easier on the stomach. 


   Vitafusions Prenatal Multivitamins are the most delicious vitamins I have ever taken! They are in the the flavors of Lemon and Raspberry Lemonade, colored in either yellow or red, using blueberry and carrot concentrates. The vitamins are coated in a sugar mix, which makes them taste like candy, something I rather not be the case. The vitamins themselves would be just as good without the sugar coat. They are super easy on the stomach and easy to chew, with no side effects. You take two vitamins every day to get the needed nutrients and it feels like you ate a little mini dessert haha. I really like these prenatals, definitely a brand I would recommend for mama-to-be. 


     You can find the Vitafusion Prenatal Vitamin Gummies available for purchase in your local stores. Use gummyvites.com online 
'Where To Buy' section to find one closest to you. 
You can also find them available on Amazon for a great price!

The blankets are very large in size at 47" x 47" so you have all the space you need to swaddle your baby, or even older child. Because of their large size, you can use these blankets as to shade the sun from the carseat or stroller, folded as a changing mat, burpy rag, or even as a breastfeeding cover. And once your little one is grown, you could even use these blankets as cleaning rags because they absorb water so well.
      The swaddles are really great blankets for warm summer days, as their thin fabric and muslin layer helps prevent overheating while keeping your baby cuddled. You might even find yourself using one to cuddle up with on the couch this summer! The neutral colors in these blankets make them suitable for either gender, perfect for those happy gender surprises!

Adorable Set of 6 Baby Bandana Bibs


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



   All babies look adorable in baby bandana bibs, especially when the bibs have cute designs like hearts, bunnies, and little captains on them! This set of baby bandana bibs come in a pack of 6, with each one a different design. The bibs are made of super soft cotton and the necks have double snaps to grow with your little one. The fabric is absorbent and keeps baby clean and dry from drool or feeding time. These bibs are adorable and mixed and matched, mostly for girls, with two of the bibs for boys.


I love how cute these baby bandana bibs are! The designs are unique from other baby bibs I've seen, and they pack personality in each little one. They are a lot thinner then most bibs I've reviewed though, so I worry about the entire absorbancy of them, but so far they seem good. The fabric is really soft, with the stitching well made to last a long time. The snaps are easy to open and close for an adult, but your little one won't be able to pull the bib off like they love to do. These bibs will keep your babies clothing clean, and they will still look cute while wearing one! The fabric of is super soft so your lil one can also wear it without a shirt, perfect for those warmer days.


You can find this adorable set of 6 Baby Bandana Bibs available on Amazon for just under $15.

Easy Shredding With The Blackwood Rotary Cheese Grater


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

Add a lil something extra to your meals with the Blackwood Rotary Cheese Grater! This grater is great for grating up cheeses to go on your pizza, salad, and more in an easy to use rotate of the handle! You just place in the chunk of cheese, press down on the stopper, and start rotating the handle. The cheese will come out in precise shreds perfect for your topping needs. You can also use this grater to grind up a variety of other foods such as Chocolate, Nuts, Coconut, Cinnamon, Garlic, Ginger, and more! This makes it easier and fun for adding simple toppings to desserts or pastries. The Blackwood Rotary Grater is a time saver and should be in all kitchens.

I have enjoyed using the Blackwood Rotary Grater! It's easy to use and makes beautifully shredded cheese every time. In fact it's so easy to use, now my son can help me shred the cheese! That is such a bonus. On my first attempt at using the Blackwood Rotary Cheese Grater, I used small rectangles cut from my block of cheddar cheese. Though the cheese grated nicely, it took some extra work because the cheese was too soft. The Grater itself is best used for harder cheeses such as Parmesan or Romano. I love that this grater can also be used to grate up chocolates and other sweet things, to make a dessert look extra special as well. And once you're done using, the grater allows for easy clean up, with just a toss in the dishwasher, although I prefer to handwash it. The parts all come apart too, so all the cracks can be cleaned easily. I think the only downfall I found with this grater, is that the handle that you crank should be made a little more spacious, maybe a little longer, so it is farther away from the cheese area, as I found my hand brushing against it far too much, which becomes uncomfortable. Other than that minor issue, (there for the compact design), this grater is an excellent piece of equipment to have in every kitchen. Because who doesn't like fast and easy cheese or chocolate shredding?!



You can find the Blackwood Rotary Cheese Grater available for purchase on Amazon for less than $20 and it comes with a 100% money back guarantee.
