#MilkSplashRecipe

Quinn loves milk, he could drink it all day, everyday if I permitted him too.  Brandon Jr on the other hand doesn't like plain regular milk.  No amount of bribing can get him to drink it.

He doesn't want anything to do with it unless it has some sort of flavoring!  And I don't know about you, but I am not to impressed with the amount of calories and fat in the chocolate milk on the dairy shelf.  I want my little guy to drink his necessary amount of milk each day, but not with all the extra calories and fat!   

And lets not forget that we get charged more!  I wish I couldn't grab him a small milk and flavor it, but when we are traveling that isn't possible!

I needed a flavored milk alternative!

When I found Milk Splash was looking for blogger to try their products, I instantly jumped at the offer!

Let me tell you a bit more about their product so you can see why.

MilkSplash is a brand new fun zero-calorie milk flavoring.  Basically they are a liquid milk enhancer.  Not only is MilkSplash zero-calories they are also perfect for busy parents who want their kids to drink more milk and make healthier beverage choices.

Fun facts:
Makes 24 servings 
1 gentle squeeze for each 8 fl. oz. serving
No refrigeration required (Huge perk when traveling)

Zero-calorie
Fat-free
Natural and artificial ingredients
BPA-free
Kosher
Gluten- and allergen-free 


Why are they perfect for busy parents?
They are portable and tiny enough to fit into small spaces!  Throw a few in your purchase and head out for the day.

Also they are super easy to use, kids can easily grab one pop the lid and flavor their own milk.  I'm not sure about your kids, but if my kiddos feel they made something on their own they are more likely to try it and like it :).  Plus they can decided how much or how little they want to add.

And the fact they have so many fun flavors, colors and characters makes finding the perfect milk flavoring so easy!
These include:
 Cocoa Loco
Sir Strawberry Swirl
Orange Cream Dream
Cookies ‘N Cream 
Jammin’ Banana 

These are just a few of the flavors!  Please tell me I am not the only one who wants to make some Orange Cream Dream milk!? (And yes it does taste as good as it sounds!)
And if you are worried about finding them don't be, they can be located in most Walmarts and select Targets! 

Our review:

So I set up the Milk Splashs on our table and told my little guys to each pick their own.  

I saw right away huge smiles, they love the fun little characters.  At first they were going to pick which "color" they liked most.  After I explained each color was different flavor they asked which color was which flavor.

After both of my little guys picked a flavor I went to my fridge and got them each a glass of milk.
I then popped back the lids and handed them to my kids.  At first they looked at me as if they thought I did it by accident.
After some reassuring I convinced them, that yes I was letting them mix their own.
(With our chocolate syrup, I always mix it.  They put way to much in and as I mentioned before I am not a huge fan of all the stuff inside.)

So they gave it a small squeeze or 2 and then both stopped.


  I thought for sure they were going to use half the bottle, but they told me that a little was enough, because it turned their milk colors already.

Now the last and most important test.
So we all know something can be beyond amazing on paper, but when you taste it, its a whole other story.

Quinn dove right in, as I said before the kid loves his milk! 

 Brandon on the other hand gave a small sip, then another and another and was eventually taking big sips!  He at one point asked if he could add more Milk Splash.
I of course told him to go for it!


A few times this week I sent them into school with him, thanks to their small size I can put them in his lunch box.  After several uses we still have some left.  So a little truly does go a long way!
And if you don't want to take my word for it, please see the photo below as my little guys give a thumbs up in approval.
(And yes I know that is Quinn's pointer finger, he doesn't quite understand thumbs up yet lol)

Milk Splash is yummy, affordable, easy to use, portable, a healthy choice and fun!  What more could a parent and child want in a milk flavoring!!

Uncle Milton's Toys Review

Disclaimer:  I was given products in this post for the purpose of review.  I was not paid in anyway to write this review.  All opinions are my own.

This post is part of my 2014 Holiday gui
de! Over the next few weeks I will be posting amazing companies, recipes, deals and so much more to help make your holiday easier, fun and exciting. If you wish to learn more or see all the other great holiday content please click the photo above to be taken to my Holiday Guide home page.

Uncle Milton's Toys Review

Toys, toys, and toys!  With a 3 and 6 year old I am always on the look out for the newest and coolest toys.  There are a few things I watch for though when toy shopping.

Quality
I want a toy that isn't going to break after one use.  I buy toys hoping they last an entire childhood.

Price
I love my boys, but I am not going to dish out hundreds of dollar just because it is in the holidays.  I have a set limit on what I plan to spend and I pretty much stick to it.

Is it fun
Obviously there is no point in buying a toy if no one is going to like playing with it!  I use to hate when my  nanny got me porcelain dolls, yeah they were pretty, but I wasn't allowed to play with them!  I want a toy my kids are going to love playing with.

Is it safe
I am sure my kids would love a toy that exploded, but I don't lol.  I want a toy they can play with without getting hurt.  A toy that I don't have to worry about what is in the paint, no random sharp edges, ect.

With all this in mind I found Uncle Milton's Toys a few years ago and was impressed by the selection.  After a few years of shopping with them I can safely say the meet all over the above requirements!

Uncle Milton creates, produces and markets proprietary and licensed toys that inspire imagination and learning while encouraging kids to explore and discover their world.
Uncle Milton is also a market leader in the science and educational toy category with many top licenses including Star Wars, National Geographic, Nat Geo WILD, marvel and John Deere.
These are high quality toys from licensed toy brands that we all love!

I personally was able to review:



 Create your own night-time adventure with these authentic looking, dual vision explorer goggles. Search and explore with Night Vision mode. Then, use amazing UV vision to reveal hidden dinosaur tracks!

Authentic dual-vision explorer goggles
 UV vision mode uncovers hidden dinosaur tracks 
Night-vision mode for nighttime search and exploration
 Invisible ink pen to use with dinosaur tracks stencil 
3 Dinosaur profile cards


Mustafar Lava Pool mini lab

Kids can also create their own oozing lava l Mini Lab.  Kids can have fun not only making their Lava, but also displaying it in their room afterwards!!


The only complaint I have about Uncle Milton is there is no search on their site!  I wanted to look for a item and  had to click on all the drop down menus instead of just being able to type in a simple search.
Which is no big deal and doesn't take away from the their toys are still high quality, fun, great price, safe and lets not forget educational!
  
They offer so many other products then the 2 I reviewed!  If you wish to learn more please see my link below:

2014 50th Anniversary Holiday Hess Toy Truck review

2014 50th anniversay Hess holiday toy Truck review


In 1964, Leon Hess, founder of Hess Corporation, began offering toy trucks as a thank you to loyal customers.  He had no way of knowing that he was about to start a life time family tradition.  Now my dad didn't get a Hess Truck every year for Christmas, but instead every other year.  I use to smile when he would get out his condition boxes and show me and my siblings his old Hess Trucks.  He then got out my first Hess Truck and then my 2nd and so on.  Unlike him I got on almost every year for Christmas and I actually looked forward to adding my collection to my dads.  In 2007 Brandon Jr was born on November 1st, way to young to play with Trucks, but trust me that didn't stop me and my dad from going out and getting him his first one for Christmas!

In1964 what started as away to reward loyal customers, has turned into one of my favorite holiday traditions  and I can safely say I can see Hess Trucks gracing even my grand children's Christmas days :)

This in the 2014 50thAnniversary Holiday Hess Toy Truck and they aren't holding back!
The 2014 Hess Truck is...
Hess Toy Truck and Space Cruiser with Scout.  The official 50th Anniversary Truck.  The three-in-one Hess Toy Truck can be pre-ordered now at www.hesstoytruck.com  with 6 energizer batteries and free shipping.
It will go on sale November 14th at participating Hess, Hess Express and WilcoHess retails stores.

The 2014 50th Anniversary Holiday Hess Toy Truck is a space cruiser, with retractable landing gear, flashing lights and button-activated and motion activated sound effects, riding on top of a flatbed truck.  A cargo door on the space cruiser opens to reveal the scout that features folding wings and working lights.  The flatbed trucks doubles as a launch pad complete with a button-activated launch ramp with hydraulic lift, 3 realistic sound effects and 41 lights!!
Chrome detailing on the cab includes an embossed "50" to officially mark the Hess Toy Truck's 50th anniversary.

Emjoi Epi Slim review


Disclosure:  received this product for no charge from Emjoi's publicists  I was not paid in anyway to write this review, all opinions are my own.


How many times have you been out and about and suddenly notice an embarrassing hair!  Of course you are stuck that way until you get home, but your entire day is pretty much ruined, because all you can think about is that hair.

Well that embarrassing unable to get rid of on the go hair is now a thing of the past thanks to Emjoi Epi Slim!

The new ultra-portable and ultra-affordable Emjoi Epi Slim does everything that its larger Emjoi siblings do—removing unwanted hair from the body and face, while doing so with the absolute minimum of discomfort—but in a smaller, lighter package and at an extremely affordable price.

 The Epi Slim+ e18 will be available online at www.emjoi.com from this coming November 1.
 Ideally timed for the holiday market, Emjoi’s ultra-convenient, ultra-portable, ultra-sleek and superbly effective new battery-operated epilator, the Epi Slim e18, is sure to be a hit both for gifting and for self- purchase this coming holiday season and beyond. 

I mean really who wants to be a grandma's house and suddenly realize that they have a bit of hair on their upper lip!  Now every holiday family photo is going to show case said hair!

 The compact Epi Slim+ features 18 of the same patented 3-disc tweezers that have long made Emjoi products the go- to choice for removing unwanted hair (as short as 0.3mm) from the root from any part of the body (including the most sensitive areas—face, bikini line, underarms, etc.) quickly, with minimum discomfort and for up to six weeks at a time. 
 With eRase glide technology, its disc opening at an optimal 14mm and operating at 540 strokes per second, these tweezers remove the majority of hair at the first pass to keep the possibility of skin irritation to an absolute minimum. Meanwhile skin glide technology lifts up and removes hair by gliding the tweezers over the skin with less irritation. 

I do want to mention though that if you get the angle even slightly wrong it hurts!  I am yet to get cut or have irritation afterward, but if I push to hard and have the angle wrong it really stings.  So when using make sure to hold it just right.

Kushyfoot 2014 review

Disclaimer:  I was given products in this post for the purpose of review.  I was not paid in anyway to write this review.  All opinions are my own.
Welcome to another fun post in my Holiday gift guide :). To learn more or see all the other amazing products being featured please click my photo above.
My drawers are full of Kushyfoot products!  After doing my first review with them I just couldn't get enough!  Everything they make is super comfortable and convenient.  So even though the items I mention today are ones I got for review, they are just a few of many Kushyfoot items in my drawers :)
Kushyfoot  It is the first brand in women's hosiery to incorporate the ancient healing art of Reflexology. All products are exclusively designed to feature a comfortable sole.  Combining both style and comfort. 
At Kushyfoot they want to massages your feet with every step!

This time around I was sent 2 items for review.  


First I was able to review Fleece lined trouser socks add the soft, rich comfort for which fleece is known without the bulk!
I love that I can wear these without having to put on a huge pair of socks!  I get the comfort and softness of fleece without adding an extra 1/2 inch to my foots :)
They are super supple and certain to produce a relaxed and contented feeling for the wearer from the moment they step into these leg wear gems. The fleece styles are particularly popular when temperatures dip.  I myself turn to fleece a lot instead of other items such as "Wool, ect"
Fleece is super soft, but at the same time is able to keep you warm :)
 The Flats to Go women can carry around this product in its mini-purse pack everywhere they go! Lightweight and ultra-portable, it’s the perfect solution to achy feet. Ideally used indoors and on smooth surfaces, women are even stashing an extra pair in their cars, suitcases (perfect for airport security and avoiding bare feet in yucky places!) and desk drawers at the office. Ballet flats continue in a range of stylish and classic colors, textures and patterns (patent, metallic, snake skin print, alligator embossed and fleecy leopard--the softest, trendiest of all). Sandal and open toe versions sell year-round for resort getaways and warm weathered regional demand. They’re even perfect for getting a pedicure! All styles have the same super-comfortable 3-dimensional massaging sole for relief from high heels and are sized 5/6, 7/8 and 9/10.
These are lightweight and easy to travel with.  In the winter time I like to wear boots to keep my toes warm, but when I get into the mall I feel awkward.  So I normally chance into these (I make my hubby run my boots back to the car!)
This way I can shop and be comfortable at the same time!

No matter Kushyfoot product I am sent to review I always know I will love them.  Kushyfoot puts a lot of time into making this products not only comfortable, but convenient.  No women's wardrobe is complete without a few Kushyfoot products!!

Candy Warehouse review

Candy Warehouse review 

Now I know today is Halloween and it wasn't by accident I posted a candy review :).  Candy is a trademark of so many holidays!  Boxes of chocolate on Valentines day, Chocolate and other goodies in Easter Baskets, handing candy out for Trick Or Treat, candy-canes for Christmas and lets not forget all the other occasion where candy shows up!
Wedding favors, birthday party goodie bags/pinatas and so many more!
It is safe to say candy does play quite the role in our lives.  

Sometimes you have a favorite and you just can't seem to find anywhere or everyone in your family wants different things and you don't feel like going to 10 different stores to find them.
I found a one stop online shop that is sure to have something for everyone!  

The Candy Warehouse
They pride ourselves on their huge selection and excellent customer service. Since 1998,  they have strictly upheld a tradition of candy excellence! Did you have a favorite candy when you were a kid? Do you have kids of your own who like unusual or hard-to-find confections? Chances are, you can find everything you need at the Candy Warehouse. From nostalgic to new, minty to sour, tiny to giant-sized, liquid to chunky, lavender to silver, hard to chewy, gourmet to gummy boogers and so much more!

They have it all, I love that you can buy in bulk at a great price!

I was able to review:
Christmas Jooblers Candy Crumble Melts: 160-Piece Tub 

You simply pop one into your mouth to be greeted with the refreshing, sweet taste of key lime!
My hubby loved them and kept eating them, after a day or so I didn't like the Key Lime flavor so much!  Which was fine by my hubby, just meant more for him.
 This is a melt-a-way candy, each bite delivers a soft and satisfying crumble, sure to fill you with glee and make your cheeks as rosy as Santa’s.

You can suck on it until it melts away or because it is so soft you can also chewy on it :)

This is just one of the Candies offered at the Candy Warehouse.  To see all the other items offered see the link below:

ECBC REVIEW

Disclaimer:  I was given products in this post for the purpose of review.  I was not paid in anyway to write this review.  All opinions are my own.


e/c/b/c is a premium travel bag company!
They offer stylish high-end bags that are sure to be the awe of any traveler.
Traveling in style can be tough, the cute bags never have enough compartments and the ones with lots of space are always a bit drab looking.
ECBC solved this problem by offering bags that are not only convenient in size, but also in style.

I personally was able to review a messenger bag and a matching Ares Mini sleeve.
I was also sent a Portable Power Pack (which I swear is a little piece of Heaven!!)

Let me start the review by telling you the 3 items I reviewed are only 3 of many!  And the color I choose to review in is only one option.   So if you are looking at my styles and thinking 'hmm that is not me' don't worry with all the choices they offer you are sure to find something you love that suits your needs.


First I want to talk about the Messenger bag.


This is one of the most affordable messengers, Poseidon brings it all together.  The messenger bag comes in all kinds of sizes for people to choose from so everyone will be able to find one that their laptop fits into. The front flap is self sealing with extra secure Velcro in case you don’t clip it shut. This bag keeps your gear safe from the elements with water resistant material and water sealing, self repairing zippers. Quick Access front pocket keeps the things you need most close at hand. Adjustable strap has a hide away pocket to keep the excess tucked away neatly. Never lose your power again, add an ECBC Portable Power Pack and get your gadgets charged like anywhere.

Features:
 Self-Repairing YKK Zippers
 The messenger bag comes in all kinds of sizes for people to choose from so everyone will be able to find one that their laptop fits into.
 High Density Protective Foam in Laptop Pocket 
Phone Pocket
 Quick Access / Ticket Pocket 
Padded Adjustable Shoulder Strap 
 Zippered Water Bottle Holder

 Available Colors: • Black • Blue • Green • Linen • Berry 

Dimensions: • 14.5 “x 12.2” x 3.5”

 Material: 
 Body – 1000d HD Kodra Nylon 
Lining – 210d Double Diamond Ripstop Nylon 


I love that they give you the dimensions, this way there is no guessing if you laptop or other devices will fit.  I also love all the different compartments I was able to fit all my stuff and I still had some left over room.

The inside is super soft so I don't have to worry about scratches on my devices.  Also I don't have to worry about my bag getting bumped and the stuff inside becoming damaged, there is a really nice amount of padding to product all your devices.
The outside is durable and able to with stand the elements.  Meaning if I get caught in a rainstorm I don't have to worry about everything insides getting soaked.
And to really make this product awesome even the shoulder area has a pad!  No more strap indents on my shoulders :)

The quick access pocket is also a really nice feature.  When I take my laptop with I always throw money and keys into my bag.  With my old bags they got lost, now with this quick access feature it only takes me a moment to get them.
To learn more about this product please click my link below:

Next I was able to review the Ares Mini Tablet sleeve
Again more colors and sizes are offered then the photo above.


ECBC Ares iPad sleeves are constructed of 1000d Kodra body and a cushioned, high-pile fleeced lined interio 

 Features: YKK Zippers 
 Internal Features: Fleece Lined Features
Colors:
 Black 
10 Blue
 Linen 
 Berry
 External Dimensions: Tablet Sleeve: 10.25″ x 8.25″ x 1.25″ iPad Mini Sleeve: 8.5″ x 6.5″ x 1.25″

Again love that we got dimensions!  I am horrible at finding sleeves that my Kindle Fire HDX will fit into. 

 Once more the soft linings were a huge plus in protecting my kindle surface.  And also because of this plush lining I don't have to worry about smudges on my screen.  The thicker padding again added lots of production for my device.  Oh and there was room in the front for the Power Pack I am about to gush to you about!
The messenger bag and Ares Mini are super cute together, but as I mentioned before they are only 2 of the many items offered by ECBC.

Now lets talk about the item I was shocked to learned existed.  I am guilty of going to a soccer game with an already dead camera or video recorder.  I take my kindle with places only to realize I have no battery life.
Most of the time I just temper and get mad at myself for being air-headed.  Well NO MORE!
The portable recharging pack

A portable recharging unit that charges your small electronic devices when you don't have access to a power outlet. Rapid charge technology delivers a quick recharge when you need it most.

InnoTab MAX, VTech review and giveaway


I think it is safe to say technology is here to stay.  I am always impressed when Brandon jr gets on the computer and automatically places his fingers on home-row!  At his age my family didn't even have a computer and the few times we used them in school I was the one finger typer lol

VTech has a large range of products that not only are fun for kids, but are also educational.  I love that they are up-to-date with whats in and popular.  No matter what age my kiddos are there is always a VTech product that is perfect for them.  Which brings me to today's review;
The InnoTab Max by VTech!
The tablet is built to grow with young minds.  With Android learning content, the InnoTab max expertly combines VTech’s expert-supported library of cartridges and apps with carefully selected educational Android apps.
Now not only do kids get the best of VTech, but they also have the top selection of Android apps!  Offering them the best of both learning worlds and the widest selection of curricula to provide a top class children’s tablet. 

At this point in time I was already sold!  Every VTech product we have ever owned was not only fun, but so educational.  The added fun of having Android apps made the InnoTab Max a must have, but I did want to read more and find out everything I could.

Winning Moves Games Review


This review is also part of my Anything Goes Fall giveaway hop!  All the items you see in this post will be offered as a grand prize


Winning Moves is a leading maker of board games, card games, and puzzles. Since their first year of operation in 1995, they have formed a close relationship with one of the world's largest game companies, Hasbro, Inc., owner of Parker Brothers and Milton Bradley. 
As a result, many beloved Parker Brothers and Milton Bradley games are now made exclusively by Winning Moves! 

 A few are their games are Pass The Pigs, PayDay, Rubik's Cube, Scattergories Categories, Rack-O, No Stress Chess, and hot new sellers like The Rubik's Void Puzzle, Classic Twister, Aggravation and Touring. Additionally, many timeless classics like Pit, Classic Monopoly, Classic Clue, Parcheesi Royal Edition, and Classic Yahtzee are now exclusively made by Winning Moves Games.
And these are just a few!
They are always striving to make new family friendly games.

At my house family game night is a huge event where we all get together and have fun.  I didn't realize until I read their list of games just how long I have been enjoying Winning Moves games!

Winning Moves offers 5 categories on their site.  I wanted to feature something from each category so everyone could see the amazing items they offer.
Please note I am only feature one items from each section, they sections have so many more items to choose from!! 

First I choose a card game from the Card Game section.

Splash Pals Card GameRevolutionary cards that are waterproof, lightweight, washable and they float! Battle it out with an astronaut-Sump Wrestler with legs as delicate as a Ballerina or fight back with a Caveman-Mermaid with the brain of a Robot. Kids of all ages will enjoy making their own splash pals!

So much fun!  I normally blow dry my hair at the sink when Quinn is in the tub. I love how now when I do this he sits in the tub playing with his little cards!  It makes bath-time so much more fun and will have kiddos looking forward to bath-time instead of dreading it! 


 Next I picked and item from the Kids Game Section: Crocodile Dentist:
 Poor old croc has a tooth that's bothering him; pretend to be a Dentist to help him out. Press the wrong tooth and he'll surprise you. No loose parts. A classic.  

I so remember playing this as a kid!  And its just as fun now years later as it was then!  Poor old Croc still isn't having much luck at the dentist lol

The next section was the Rubik's.





Rubiks Cube 2X2: New mechanical design, smoother play, faster and more reliable - and there are NO STICKERS! No stickers means no cheating!

I am horrible when it comes to the Rubik's and I really had myself convince I could defeat a smaller cube... Nope its just as fun and as challenging as the regular sized Rubik's Cube.

For my 4th section I picked an item from the family games area.

SCATTERGORIES CATEGORIES: If you love The Game of SCATTERGORIES, then SCATTERGORIES CATEGORIES is the next game you will want to play! It's a great twist on your favorite. Keep the fun coming with this fast-thinking categories game.

My family does love Scattergories and were thrilled to have this new way to play!  Its just as fun as the classic Scattergories.  

Last and no least was the Pasttime Puzzles.  I am the Puzzle builder in the family so this one is just for me :).  


WINTER HOMECOMING - 1000 PIECES Winter Homecoming by Peter Ellenshaw is a 1000 Piece Pastime Puzzle that includes 100 special whimsies! The finished puzzle fits a standard 20"x28" frame. 1000 piece puzzle includes 100 special whimsy pieces.  All of the Pastime Puzzle are beautiful and truly just as lovely as the one I reviewed.  Right now they are 
discontinuing our puzzles till they sell out!  So if you see one you love do not wait.  Once they are gone they are gone.

All of these items plus many more can be found at the Winning-Moves Games website and also at most retailers!
