Plow and Hearth Review and giveaway

Plow and Hearth Review and giveaway

Recently I had the chance
to review for Plow and Hearth.  The item I reviewed is only 1 of the amazing things thier website offers!

Plow & Hearth is a trusted catalog, retail, and internet company! They sell unique, enduring home and lifestyle items that are built to last!  Every item they sell is high quality!  They are dedicated to be honesty, have integrity and most importantly they are dedicated to their commitment to customer service.
Right now their stores can be found in:
Maryland
Pennsylvania
North Carolina
Virginia 
New Jersey
Deleware

If you don't live near a store that is okay, because you can order from the internet :).

So I bet you are wondering what amazing item did I have the chance to review.  I got to look at the website and see which items I think I would like.  I found it almost instantly!

Contour Folding Wedge Pillow

The Contour Folding Wedge Pillow offers a natural way to find relief from acid reflux, breathing and digestive problems. The wedge lifts up and supports your head and chest in an upright, angled position, providing relief from acid reflux, sinus pressure and sleep apnea, while also supporting tense muscles. Folds for convenient storage. The Soft velour cover is washable and unzips for super easy removal.
100% polyurethane foam, 100% polyester cover

 

 

As someone who suffers for constant sinus pain, I couldn't believe there was a pillow to help relieve some of my pain!  Every morning I would wake up with searing pain in my face.  It was because I lay flat on my back and the pressure would build up.  With this Wedge pillow I am stuck in an upright angle.  Helping to keep the pressure from building!

  I know some of you are thinking why not just stack pillows.  Well I did try that before, the angle is never right and the pillows always move around to much.  With the wedge it doesn't move.  My lower body weight keeps it in place.  And it places me at a very comfortable natural sleep position.

Plus its great for when I want to read it in bed :)

The only issues I had with this pillow is my hubby seems to think if he goes to bed first it means he has the right to use it....  LOL well I guess that isn't an issue with the pillow more of an issue with the hubby.   I think I'm going to start hiding it and only getting it when I'M ready for ;).

This is only 1 of many items offered at Hearth and Plow.  They have so many amazing items for the home and garden<3

Mommy's Bliss Sweet Slumber products review

Mommy's Bliss Sweet Slumber products review

I was recently given the chance to review for Mommy's Bliss.  An amazing company that makes safe and natural baby products!  I was given the chance to review the Sweet Slumber set! 

It includes:
Sweet Slumber 3-in-1 Baby Wash 
Sweet Slumber Massage Cream
Sweet Slumber Mist
Before I start my review I want to tell you a bit about each of these products.
The 3-in-1 Baby wash is a body wash, shampoo and bubble bath in one bottle.  No drying agents are in the 3-in-1 and it won't irritate your babies sensitive skin.  Its also tear free!


Mommy’s Bliss Sweet Slumber Massage Cream is a gentle, moisturizing cream used to help relax your baby.  Also it includes organic shea butter which makes skin soft and smooth.
Mommy’s Bliss Sweet Slumber Mist creates a calm and familiar scent that relaxes baby for a good night’s sleep.  You simply spray this on the bedding and pajamas of your little one.
All of the products are enriched with calming  lavender, chamomile and ylang ylang.  All of which are associated with relaxation and sleep. 
Each are:
 made with natural, soothing botanicals 
free of alcohol, sulfates, phthalates and parabens 
gentle enough for daily use 
no artificial fragrances, gluten or soy 
hypoallergenic 
100% vegetarian and vegan
packaging is 100% recycled with post-consumer resin.
I love Mommy's Bliss Sweet Slumber products.  The smell is so enchanting and natural.  The products worked amazing on my little guy.  
First we used the 3-in-1 I gave my little guy a bubble bath!  I was so impressed with all the bubbles it made!  Next I massaged it into his hair and skin.  I adored the lavender smell!  I won't lie I was tempted to use this on myself!  It got my little guy squeaky clean!
I used the massage cream right after his bath. I started with his legs and moved my way up. My little guy was starting to relax from the massage.  And I'm sure the relaxing scents were playing a major roll in the the sudden sleepiness.  


After his massage I put on his PJ's that I had already sprayed with the mist.  Then I laid him down on his bedding which was also sprayed.  




My little guy slept the whole night.  A beautiful blissful sleep. 

Like I said I love and adore the Mommy's Bliss product line!  They are safe for our kids and is something you can be proud to use on them!  The products are affordable and more than worth the price.
You can buy them at Walgreens!

Glade Expressions

 


Recently through  bzzagent I was given the chance to review the new Glade Expressions products.  I was able to review the Fragrance Mist and the Oil diffuser! 
The Fragrance mist (in the first photo)  was so easy to use just squeeze and you get a  fragrance mist.   Oh and its nice because it is refillable  I loved the scents that were offered and picked myself the cotton one :) .

Ergonomic Pen an UGLee Pen Review and Giveaway


Ergonomic Pen an UGLee Pen Review and Giveaway

I bet the name of this pen had you raising your eyebrows!  LOL well I did the same thing when I first heard it.  And I just had to know, what is an UGLee pen!

It is an ergonomic pen!  

But what does ergonomic mean?

~~designed for ease of use~~

Well I like anything that was designed with ease of use in mind! 

The UGLee Pen is good for everyone who writes young and old!  It is especially helpful to people who experience pain and discomfort when writing, for example those with arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, etc.
 It's a great writing tool  for children who are learning to write.   And for high-school and college students who have to take copious notes, this pen helps keep hands and fingers from cramping.  
So the UGlee Pen really does benefit everyone.


Wondering what I thought personally?
The pen is comfortable to use, it took me a bit to get use to the gel though.  I'm so use to something solid so it was nice to have a bit of padding there.  I was given 3 pens I kept one for myself, one for my hubby and I gave my oldest son one.
My oldest is learning to write and learning his letters.  So the grip was nice for him.  I have such a hard time getting him to place his fingers right.  The UGLee pen was such a neat tool that he had fun trying to learn to hold it correctly.  The grip is shaped to promote him to hold it correctly I was so impressed with this feature.  Also his fingers don't slip.
The pen its self was light weight and wrote smoothly.


Not to mention mine came in pink my favorite color!  My hubby wasn't to keen on the pink, but after using it he stopped caring the guys at work teased him about his pink pen!

Zevia Zero Calorie Soda Review and Giveaway

Zevia Zero Calorie Soda Review and Giveaway


Do you love soda, but not all the unhealthiness about it?  Do you wish there was a great tasting better alternative?
If so this post is for you!
I'm going to tell you about Zevia, the better soda!

Some fun facts about Zevia:
Zevia is the zero calorie soda with no artificial sweeteners. 
They use stevia in their products!  Which is a natural alternative!
Stevia soda is available in several delicious flavors!
Cola, Dr. Zevia, Cherry Cola, Grapefruite Citrus, Ginger Ale, Lime Cola, Orange, Caffeine Free Cola, Black Cherry, Strawberry, Cream Soda, Grape, Lemon Lime Twist, Mountain Zevia, Giner Root Bear!

So what makes Zevia stand out?
The fact they they are making naturally delicious, healthier versions of the familiar favorites we grew up with, without sugar, is just smarter. I guess you could say that Zevia is the smarter soda.

My dad has diabetes so finding healthy alternatives is a passion for me.  I want my dad to be able to have healthy products with out giving up great tasting products.

And guess what Zevia does just that!  I wont lie to you and say they taste identical to other brands, but they do taste good!  I was so impressed with the flavors and couldn't wait to get my dad some of his own!
With so many flavors to choose from Zevia really does have something for everyone.
My hubby now swears that he will only drink the Dr. Zevia!

Even though this is a bad photo of my hubby I wanted to post a photo of him with his new favorite soda :).  He is so impressed that he can have soda with out all the (and this is his word) crap they put in other soda!



I highly recommend Zevia!  Not only because it taste good, but also because its smarter soda :)

Bumble Bar Review

Bumble Bar Review

Recently I was given the opportunity to review the Junior Bumble Bar's.


Some fun facts about Bumble Bars:
They are glutton free.
 Vegan and organic  
The flavors range from  Chocolate Peanut Butter to Paradise Pineapple something for everyone!
They are certified Kosher, and are still dairy-free
But my favorite fact is:  All of their ingredients are ethically sourced.  Wonder what that means??  They  work with companies around the world who have really high standards such as:
 *worker safety and fair treatment
*sustainable productions
*environmental protection
*community support 
*food safety and quality. 
 How amazing is that!  Bumble Bar goes above and beyond and I'm proud to be able to promote their company :).


So that all sounds great.... But how does it taste?
I really enjoyed the flavors!  My kids also liked them :).  It was a great healthy snack and they were so easy for on the go!
  My hubby was a bit of a party pooper and complained it was to dry....  This is coming from the man who eats greasy pizza and wings every chance he gets...  So we don't take his opinion of health food to seriously!
For being a glutton free/vegan product I think the flavors were great.  So often heath products are bland and not fun to eat, but with Bumble Bar I could really taste the flavors and was so impressed with them!




The Bar's appearance did remind me a bit of Bird food!  But if it taste good I don't care what it looks like :)!  Plus my kids thought it looked awesome.
