The Amazing Toys of Marvin Glass

Image
Are you a fan of "coffee table books" or is that not your thing?  In my younger days, I had a few of them, but of course, once children were in the picture, that went away.  I have found a great book that I think would make for a great addition on the coffee table of someone a bit older than me.  Maybe parents or grandparents?  The Amazing Toys of Marvin Glass is the book I am talking about.

Throwback enthusiasts will enjoy this walk on the colorful side of a 1960s and 1970s childhood. During this period the toy industry exploded with an infusion of bright, zany toys and games for kids, and MarvinGlass’s revolutionary toy designs helped shape a generation, or at least gave them a memorable childhood. The company’s…

AntiHero theme for #lootcrate, awesome products again!

Image
I tell you what, LootCrate really sets the bar high for other Subscription boxes to compete with on amount and quality.  Each month, I think they can't be outdone and then BOOM - DROP THE MIC, they outdo themselves with the next box.  The theme I am sharing this time around?  Anti-Hero.

You know how much I love that Lootcrate  has a shirt in each box. This one had a shirt from Archer.  Now, I have never seen Archer, but I hear several of my friends talking about it.  That is on my "must watch an episode" list.  Have you ever seen it?  I guess this shirt is something you would understand if you watched the show.  
I also love when they have figures in there and although I know nothing ABOUT Harley Quinn, I love…

DNA Miracles is the Solution!

Image
As long as I'm living, my baby you'll be.  Yes, that is so true. While Savannah is 1, she thinks she is going on 18 at times.  Slow down, baby girl.  You only get this once!  We have been using a new to us product, from the DNA Miracles line. So far, we all love it!  It is a line of "natural baby and toddler" products.  Perfect for her delicate skin!!!

Baby Magic celebrates 65 years!

Image
I know that I love the smell of a new baby.  That sweet scent of baby lotion is in a category of its own. I think they just bottle up lots of coos', love, memories and laughter when they make the "baby smell." Baby Magic has been around for what seems like ages and they really surprised me when they sent me a couple of their products. Why?  Well, because one was a NO RINSE wash and it was completely new to me!

Baby Magic is actually celebrating their 65th birthday.  Maybe that isn't forever, but to a child it is!  (I remember when I thought 40 was ancient, now I am creeping up to it and realize I was badly mistaken!)
Baby Magic has the shampoo/ body wash, lotion and now the NO RINSE wash.   I love how it fo…

Lose the Stress and Gain some rest with Ease Magnesium Spray! #JBHolidayGuide16

Image
My sleep pattern is all out of whack. It starts when I get pregnant and have a hard time getting comfortable.  Then, the baby is born and most of us know how that sleep schedule is.  Normally about 2 years in, I get things worked back out, so we shall see.  I am not one to take sleeping medicine or anything like that, since I am worried the kids will need me and I will be out of it. Now, let me tell you about this new to me product, Ease Magnesium Spray. I have never heard of people having a shortage of Magnesium. Okay, lets keep it real. I really did not know what Magnesium was, I had heard of it, but wasn't familiar at all.

Emojiez make me smile too!

Image
Emojiez are sweeping the nation as the next thing.  Well, they have been for a bit now and it does not seem like it is slowing down anytime soon. Broxton has been talking about them and is drawn to them whenever he sees them in the store. Actually spotted a few kids dressed like them for Halloween at different fall festivals as well!  Are they big where you live?

No lie, we went in a store the other day and they had all sorts of the Poop emojiez products. THEY EVEN HAD SUCKERS. Now, I draw the line at that one. Needless to say, when I was given the chance to review some of the new emojiez products, I was excited ... for Broxton.  I knew he would love them and as soon as we opened the package, he and Savannah both had smiles…

Eczema? Have you tried @lemykaskincare

Image
If you have been here before, you are probably aware that Broxton has eczema. Well, now we have determined that Savannah has it as well.  It appears that hers is worse than his was at that age and it drives me crazy. I wish I could have it and them have perfect skin, but we know that can't happen. That means I will do what I do best.  I will try and let it have the least amount of breakouts and I will treat it as best as possible.  We were recently sent a tube of LeMyka Skincare for review and that is what we have been using on her skin lately.

Unlike many petrolatum based products on the market, this hydrating cream does more than preventing trans-dermal water loss, it restores skin natural barrier and truly moisturize …

Lava Lamps, for Halloween and all year!

It's Halloween!
It's Halloween!!!
I know some people do parties over the weekend, some do get togethers on Halloween Night. Others still have gatherings before and after going trick or treating.  I know some adults that have parties on Halloween night just to give candy out to the kids.  Whatever your plan on doing, remember an easy, affordable and super cute decoration (that doesn't have to be put up just because Halloween is over) is a really cool Lava Lamp!  Did you know that they have so many different designs to choose from these days???
