Wett Giggles Review

Mahayla loves bath time and she especially loves all of her rubber ducky's. I think she has about 11 of them total in her basket. Mahayla is a super independent, strong willed, and stubborn child and has been since the day she was born.  All are wonderful traits in an adult....not so much in a child going through her terrible two's! So her latest "I do it!" routine his her baths. She always insists on washing herself and washing her own hair. She tries but lets face it; she's two. 
Karen from Wett Giggles sent me their super cute soap/nail brush toy. Let me break it down...image a bath toy with a nail brush underneath....now encase it in soap! Such a wonderful idea.  The soap is 100% natural glycerin soap with essential oils and shea butter. They are all hand made with care for that extra personal touch. Wett Giggles offers 9 different "toys" to chose from and each has a different scent. Each bar comes with its own soap dish. We received "Ophelia" in the mail. I don't know how Karen knew about Mahayla's duck obsession but now we have an even dozen! "Ophelia" is lemon scented. It takes awhile to wear the soap down to where you can use the nail brush but the item overall is wonderful and can be used for quite some time. When all the soap is gone, then you have a nail brush and a toy! "Ophelia" helps Mahayla with her baths as well. Mahayla can easily hold onto the toy end of the soap while she's soaping up without constantly dropping the slippery soap into the tub. So this product has actually helped foster Mahayla's independence further and she has fewer mental breakdowns when she has trouble doing it herself.

Wett Giggles are reasonably priced at $10 (with nail brush); $8 (without nail brush); or $5 (toy only). Right now they are offering a special that gives you 20% off your purchase plus shipping is a flat rate of $4.99! Hurry over to Wett Giggles and order yours today!

Monave Mineral Makeup Giveaway

Those of you that know me well, know that I don't wear makeup. My skin just doesn't like it. I can put makeup on and within an hour you can't even tell I ever had any on. My pores just soak it up.....an then the adult onset acne occurs. I've been wanting to try mineral makeup but other companies I've looked into were too expensive in my opinion and some required you to enroll in an automatic shipping program. I just want to try the makeup not make a long term relationship with it.

Monave is a wonderful wholesale mineral makeup company that has reasonable prices and a wide variety of colors and shades. They offer "FREE" samples so you can try out the makeup and figure out which shades are best for you! One of the many things that I love about Monave mineral makeup is that it is light and looks natural. It helps hide skin flaws and gives your skin a nice even tone. I've been using Monave for about one month and no acne breakouts!

Win It: Monave is giving away 2 of their Spring/Summer Sample Packs! Just head over to Monave and let me know which one of their other products you would like to try!

Win the So Easy Baby Food Kit from Fresh Baby!


When I had Mahayla, I wanted to make my own baby food. I quickly found that there were not a lot of resources available to learn how and the methods I found were time consuming or contradictory to the guidelines of the AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics). Of course, all of this was compounded by my "First-time" parent syndrome and lack of sleep. Now, with baby #2 on the way (and the bad economy) I have a new found determination to learn and commit to making my own baby food.

I want to take a minute to tell everyone about a wonderful product offered by Fresh Baby, the So Easy Baby Food Kit. Fresh Baby has put together a time, life, and money saving kit to help us learn how to make our own baby food!The system is designed for quick, easy, and healthy preparation of baby food in 30 minutes per week. The kit includes a cookbook, 2 freezer trays, "How To" instructional DVD, and a nutrition card. The only thing not included is a food processor...but they are relatively cheap to purchase from your local large chain store.I love the cookbook! The cookbook follows the AAP guidelines for infant nutrition. It offers recipes, prep strategies for daycare, restaurants, and travel.
Fresh Baby also offers a unique line of feeding products to support breastfeeding parents and introducing solid foods. Most of their products are made in the USA and all of their plastic products are free of BP-A, pthalates, and PVC. I highly recommend giving Fresh Baby a try. It offers a simple and hassle free alternative to jarred or processed baby food and the best part is that you can save a lot of money even if your using organic foods.

Win It: Fresh Baby is offering one of my followers the Fresh Baby So Easy Baby Food kit for Free! ($37.95 value)

Produced using 100% cotton, in over 90 solids, dots, patterns, ginghams and stripes, Zutano offers designes that can be mixed and matched....a feature that I personally love.
Based out of Vermont, this whimsical clothing line offers cotton and fleece basics for babies and seasonal fashion pieces for toddlers and their new Itzy Bitzy Line for newborns!

Several of the online retailers actually have several clearance items available from the previous seasons designs that will further expand you little ones wardrobe but also save on the wallet.

I love organic cotton clothes and linens! My favorite set of sheets are made of organic cotton and I just love the way they feel on my skin. Organic cotton is safe to wear and free of toxins found in regular cotton harvest. Happy Green Bee sells a wonderful selection of baby and kids organic clothing and at a reasonable price. Make sure you check out their factory store online where they have discounted their outfits even more! I recently was able to try out an outfit from Happy Green Bee, an organic kids clothing line, the pumpkin/butterscotch skort and radish bean shirt (shown below). This outfit is so adorable and colorful. The colors are so vibrant and I haven't found them to fade with washing. The soft stretching and gender-free colors and outfits are wonderful and make excellent gifts. I love the chemise top with legging and the matching blanket!



You may be asking, " What is so special about organic clothing?" Well here's the skinny of it. "Conventionally grown cotton occupies only three percent of the world's farmland, but uses 25 percent of the world's chemical insecticides, including Parathion, which is at least 30 times more toxic than DDT! " If you've read any of my previous posts on chemical exposures you'd remember the risks involved with long term exposure to such toxic chemicals can lead to increased risks of certain cancers and birth defects. Pesticide and chemically-treated clothing traps heat and prevents skin from absorbing adequate moisture often causing rashes and eczema on sensitive skin. Whereas, organic cotton is natural and breathable. Children with allergies particularly benefit, as organic cotton does not have the residual toxic residues that linger on conventional cotton. Organic cotton is grown in soil free of herbicides, pesticides, and chemical fertilizers which in turn is healthier for us and the planet.

Happy Green Bee is dedicated to creating "cheerful gender-free organic kids clothing with sustainable earth friendly manufacturing practices in an effort to meet and increase the demand for organic children's clothing that not only looks and feels great but is contributing in positive ways to the welfare of our planet."

Win It: Happy Green Bee is giving away the same outfit pictured above: pumpkin/butterscotch/radish bean skort and radish bean shirt to one of my readers! Leave me a comment and let me know what size you'd want and what other items from Happy Green Bee you'd love to have!

The Baby Dipper


Mahayla is 2 years old now and boy is she the most stubborn and independent child I know! We never taught her how to use a fork, spoon, etc because she wouldn't let us. She was very determined to learn herself and would freak out if we helped. She made quite the mess but she did learn. I recently was able to try out the baby dipper bowl and spoon. I wish I had this when Mahayla was learning the eat, but atleast I'll have it for peanut #2!

The Baby Dipper was created by a mommy of twins who searched for a one handed feeding system and found none. So she created the Baby Dipper! The Baby Dipper set is a wonderful feeding/learning tool for you child. The contoured edges help quide food onto the spoon, it has a non-skid base, and the spoon is curved to rest on the side so it never falls in. The product is Phthalate-free and lead-free. The Baby Dipper set is microwaveable and dishwasher safe.

The size is great for baby food and rice cereals but is alittle small for bigger portions of foods. Mahayla loves her bowl set and likes to use it to eat her yogurt and ice cream.

Win It: Barbara (creator of The Baby Dipper) is giving away a Baby Dipper Set to one of my readers!
