DIY Bath Time Fun from Kiss Naturals

My daughter Kinsley and I love doing DIY projects and doing them together makes for great bonding activities. That is why I couldn’t pass up these adorable DIY bath time sets from Kiss Naturals! We received a Bath Fizzie set, a Glycerine Soap set, and a Bubble Bath set. My daughter decided to whip out the bubble bath set first. The bubble bath set included everything we needed to create four custom bottles of bubble bath. This included four empty bottles, bubble gel, pink coloring, two scent oils, a measuring cup, and a small mixing spoon. Using the premixed bubble gel, the two fragrance options (watermelon and bubble gum), and the pink color we were able to mix and match our very own custom options! Not only was this kit a great bonding activity, but my daughter felt so accomplished after we were finished! She could hardly wait to use her creations in the tub the next night! I can’t wait to complete the other two sets soon! The bath fizzie set comes with everything Kinsley needs to make 8 of her very own bath bombs, and the glycerine soap kit comes with enough material to make 16 individual soaps! Kiss Naturals also offers other award-winning kits such as lip balms and face paint, however I decided to keep everything bath related this time around. I can’t wait to see what kind of creations we come up with next!

Kudo Banz: Reinforce Good Behavior

My daughter just turned three, so I hoped the terrible twos were behind us. That is when I was told of the dreaded “Threenager” years. A three year old who has the attitude of a teenager! Temper tantrums in the store, selective hearing, and so much more. You name it, we’ve experienced it. That is why I was more than willing to test out the new Kudo Banz! Kudo Banz are small bracelet-like bands that act as a sticker chart on-the-go! No matter where you are, you can immediately reinforce good behavior by sticking a Kudo charm onto your child’s Kudo band! I immediately requested a starter pack because I was willing to try anything to correct this bad behavior. In the starter pack I received a hardcover storybook, two bands, six Kudo charms, a carrying pouch, a FREE app download. This is everything I need for 1-2 children.

IMG_7285.JPG

The Kudo Banz system was extremely easy for the kids and I to understand. Do a good deed or do something nice, and receive a Kudo charm. Receive Kudo charms and earn prizes and rewards. Simple. To start, I had to download the Kudo app and set everything up. In the parent section I could add children and select prizes for the prize wheel. I decided to add “Bake Cookies”, “Paint Your Nails”, “Go For A Bike Ride”, “Family Movie Night” and “Get Ice Cream” as prizes since those are some of my daughter’s favorite things to do! Once I explained the app to my daughter, she was more than happy to start earning her charms. Once Kinsley has earned three charms, all I have to do is scan her charm and she can spin the rewards wheel! Since the app and bracelet can go with us anywhere, the prize wheel allows for immediate reinforcement! To make sure Kinsley doesn’t lose interest in her Kudo Band, she will move up a level in the  kids move up a level in the Kudo World every time she spins the reward wheel! Kudo Bandz are such an easy way to reinforce good behavior while at home or on-the-go! Unlike similar approaches such as sticker charts,  Kudo Banz can go anywhere we go! I can’t wait to see the long-term effects of this adorable little product!

Rock The Locks: Natural Hair Care

I can not express how excited I was to test out a new haircare brand from my daughter: Rock The Locks! From the makers of Piggy Paint, Rock The Locks is a kid-friendly hair product line that is trusted by parents around the world! All Rock The Locks products are infused with essential oils and are free from all artificial fragrances, alcohol, sulfates, parabens, and phthalates! The fun colors and silly names are sure to be a hit with children, while the products themselves are sure to be a hit with parents!

20170515_165214.jpg

Not So Knotty– Not So Knotty is a conditioning detangler that is tough on tangles, but soft on hair! I personally used this detangler on both wet AND dry hair, with equally amazing results. All I had to do was spray my daughter’s hair from top to bottom, and comb through. I was surprised at how easily Not So Knotty was to distribute. It comes out of the bottle in a large spray, so I only needed to use two or three pumps per use! This product is infused with essential oils and superfruit complex which adds body, moisture, and shine! It is free of parabens and phthalates as well as alcohol. My daughter loved the fruity smell, and I loved how easy it was to comb through my daughter’s matted ends!

Curls Wanna Have Fun– Curls Wanna Have Fun is a curl enhancer that defines curls without weighing them down. Although this can be used on both wet and dry hair, I personally tested it out on my daughter’s towel dried hair. I sprayed it directly into her hair, then combed through.  After about an hour, I checked her hair again and LOVED the results. My daughter’s hair isn’t naturally curly, but thanks to Curls Wanna Have Fun, she had some adorable beach-like waves. I am sure this would work much better on girls with ringlets, however we loved our results. I also loved that it didn’t leave that “crunchy” feeling like my adult curl enhancer does! The orange creamsicle scent was heavenly, and my daughter asked if it came in a perfume bottle!

Get Stylin’ & Profilin’– Get Stylin’ & Profilin’ is a flex style gel that gives hair more control and hold. I originally got this for my nephew who likes to spike his hair up, however it came in very handy for dance class. I used it to slick back my daughter’s hair into her ballerina bun, and it held throughout the entire hour long dance class! All I had to do was apply a small amount of the gel to the palm of my hand, rub my hands together, then work the gel into my daughter’s hair to get the desired style. I let it air dry and we were ready to go. My daughter loved the green apple scent, and surprisingly I was able to smell it up until I went to rinse it out!

Don’t Messy With Me– Don’t Messy With Me is a texture paste for extreme hold. I got this product for my nephew as well, and it was a huge hit! Like the Get Stylin’ & Profilin”, all I had to do was apply a small amount of the gel to the palm of my hand, rub my hands together, then work the gel into his hair. I dried fairly quickly, so I was able to style his fohawk exactly how he wanted it without fear of it going flat. There was no crunchy feeling, and it didn’t leave any oily residue! To my surprise, this paste lasted much longer than the salon brand product I previously purchased him.

So Fresh & So Clean– So Fresh & So Clean is a two in one shampoo/conditioner that gently cleans and conditions the hair. This has to be one of my favorite Rock The Locks products! My daughter has fairly thick hair, so conditioner is a must! I was a bit skeptical about using a two in one, simply because her hair always looks dull and lifeless after use. Much to my surprise, So Fresh & So Clean did a great job of leaving my daughter’s hair super shiny and healthy looking. All I needed was a dime sized amount, and it completely covered my daughter’s head.  I was surprised at the amount of suds it created since it is an all natural product! Like all of the Rock The Locks products, the smell was amazing and lasted all day!

Lock It & Rock It– Lock it & Rock it is a hairspray that provides great hold and shine. I was super excited to find out that this product is alcohol free and water-based, which means it is perfect for little heads! I haven’t used this on my daughter’s wet hair, however I have used it to keep her dry hair in place. When I put her hair in pigtails or a pony tail, she always has these annoying little “flyaways” that get in her face. All I have to do is spray a bit of this on it, style, and she is ready to go! It stays for quite some time, however I do use it for little touchups throughout the day!

Rock The Locks can also be found on Facebook and Twitter.

Wee Blessing: Summer 2017

Last September we reviewed Wee Blessing and it was a huge hit. Kinsley and I were super excited to get another box this year filled with summer styles! Of course we had to fill out a “Style Profile” since Kinsley’s taste in clothing had changed, but everything only took me about five minutes. After filling out all of the needed info, a personal stylist got Kinsley outfits shipped out in less than a week! In this month’s box we received a Children’s Place Miss Daisy Sunshine Tank (retails for $14.97, Wee Blessing price $7.00), an Oshkosh Yellow Flutter Skirt (retails for $18.00, Wee Blessing price $9.00), a Petit Peony Navy Set Sail Designer dress (retails for $48.00, Wee Blessing price $24.00), an Oshkosh Pink Pleated Dress (retails for $46.00, Wee Blessing price $23.00), a Jumping Beans Teal What’s Bugging You Tee (retails for $14.00, Wee Blessing price $7.00) and a Jumping Beans Teal/Gray Tiered Twirl Skort (retails for $14.00, Wee Blessing price $7.00). That is a box retail value of 154.95 that I can have for $77! That is over 50% savings! There is nothing better than SAVING money on cute clothes, except the fact that someone else did all of the hard work for me! All I have to do is circle the ones I am keeping, then send back the ones I don’t like. Once again, Wee Blessing did not disappoint because I decided to keep them all! I can’t wait to see what we get in our next box!

Summer is finally here which means my daughter and I will be doing a lot of traveling. Summer camps, field trips, family visits and so much more keep us on the road. No matter where we go, we are sure to take our Thirsty Kids™ Flip-it™ Freestyle from Nuby along for the ride! The Thirsty Kids™ Flip-it™ Freestyle from Nuby is a 12 oz cup designed for children aged 18 months and up. The Vari-Flo™ valve ensures that my daughter’s juice won’t leak or spill, so there are never any on-the-go messes!

IMG_6891.JPG

My daughter Kinsley loves her new Thirsty Kids™ Flip-it™ Freestyle cup, and grabs it any time we go to leave the house. The cute design is perfect for her and the silicone band allows Kinsley to easily get a good grip. It fits perfectly in her cup holder, and also easily slides into her backpack! Now no matter where we go, Kinsley is always prepared with her juice. If your kids and family are as busy as mine, the Thirsty Kids™ Flip-it™ Freestyle from Nuby is definitely the way to go!

Kids Work Station from Best Choice Products

With my daughter Kinsley starting preschool this year, I knew I would need to find her an area where she could complete all of her homework and art projects. I didn’t want to buy her something that would only be suitable for her now, but something that will last her for a few years to come. That is why I was so excited to get my hands on this height adjustable children desk from Best Choice Products. This desk is recommended for children ages 3-10, and can grow with my daughter as she gets older. 20170619_195310

This table came in 11 pieces, and was extremely easy to put together. It took me less than ten minutes by myself to get it completely set up. I was extremely impressed with all of the wonderful qualities this desk had! Not only does this table have a detachable LED lamp with touch power and four brightness settings, but it also has a tilting surface, a pencil case, and a pull-out drawer. The tilting surface has a 1 inch gap so that no fingers can get caught or smashed. There are also two hooks on the sides of the desk to hang backpacks! PicMonkey Collage.jpg

Once I had the desk completely set up, I adjusted the height of the desk by using the height guide on the side of the desk. Using my daughter’s height measurements, I was able to adjust the desk and the chair to the perfect corresponding heights.  Since my daughter is about 36 inches, the 11.6 desk/chair height was perfect for her. As she grows, I can lift the desk and chair higher so she is comfortable.PicMonkey Collage.jpg

My daughter doesn’t start school until August, however she was more than happy to test out this desk. She is currently using the desk to read her books and color, and she loves that it is “small” just like she is! She can also turn the LED light on/off all by herself. This desk is even more perfect that I originally imagined! I can’t wait until she starts school so she can sit down and do all of her little projects! This desk is so durable, so I have no doubt that it will last us quite a few years! 20170619_195641

This desk can be purchased at Best Choice ProductsSears, and Walmart. It comes in gray, pink, and blue color options.

Traveling with Diono

As much as we wish we could avoid it, traveling with toddlers is never much fun. It can sometimes be hectic, overwhelming, and messy…and let’s not forget the constant “Are We There Yet?” to top things off.  Diono wants to make traveling with our kids as easy and organized as possible, which is why they offer an extended line of accessories for on-the-go families. From babies to toddlers, Diono is sure to have everything your traveling family needs to make sure you enjoy your road trip.download

Stow N’ Go– The Stow N’ Go backseat organizer is the first step to a successful road trip! Whether you are heading out of town, or going down the road to grandma’s house the Stow N’ Go is extremely useful. Installing this product was extremely simple. The top straps fasten easily around any headrest and the bottom straps fasten around the base of the seat for a nice snug fit. There are seven full-sized pockets on the Stow N’ Go as well as two medium sized drink holders. I was easily able to fit a few movies, snacks, toys, and books to keep my daughter occupied. As I was driving, I was surprised to find that nothing fell out, even when the seat is leaned back!

Travel Pal– I have never seen anything like the Travel Pal before! The Travel Pal is a small organizer designed to keep books and toys within your child’s reach. There was no installation required, and I was able to simply pop it open and place items inside. Along with the large opening and several different pockets, there are two insulated drink holders which are perfect for holding extra juice! As a mom, I love that this Travel Pal is waterproof as my daughter can be a bit messy at times. This product was extremely easy to clean!

Dry Seat– Lets face it, although our toddlers may be potty trained…accidents happen. Especially when they are locked in a seat for a long period of time. The Dry Seat offers 100% waterproof protection so any accidents are easy to clean! No more taking your car seat apart to wipe down big messes! All I had to do was stick it in my daughter’s car seat, then pop it in the washer after any accidents. This device can also be used in high chairs, strollers, and most products with a 5 point harness. Not only is this device good for accidents, but it would also come in handy for wet swimsuits when leaving the beach!

Tomato Superstar

What do I love more than cute little girls’ clothes? Cute little girls’ clothes with a powerful mission. Tomato Superstar is a uniquely designed clothing line created to encourage and empower young girls to be the unique superstar they’re destined to be. My daughter chose the Enchanted Elegance Dress in blue, and we ordered a size two. My daughter Kinsley wears a size 3t, but since Tomato Superstar comes in half sizes (2,4,6,8,10, or 12) I ordered her a size 2. Much to my surprise the dress ran a bit large, and fit her like a charm! Kinsley loved how flowy the dress was, and I loved the adorable design! With each Tomato Superstar purchase, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to The Invisible Girl Project. The Invisible Girl Project is a  non-profit, 501(c)3 organization that seeks to end gendercide in India. Gendercide is the genocide of a specific gender group—that is, the mass killing of girls and women. IGP raises global awareness, pursues justice, and assists Indian organizations in the rescue of and care for Indian girls. In my opinion, this is one of the most important organizations that need our help and focus. Not only is this clothing line well-made and super adorable, but the mission behind it makes it even more special!
