New Wave Enviro Review and Giveaway...


Thanks to New Wave Enviro my family is excited to tell you about some of their amazing products!

Here's what our great package looked like that came...


We love this family owned company that's been providing environmentally friendly products since 1993! Their complete line of Enviro filters, BPA free Enviro bottles, Seriously Safe Stainless® Steel Bottles and Litter Free Lunch™ products help to improve the quality of life while creating earth-friendly alternatives.

First, check out the awesome Splish Splash Bath Filter...


This product removes the chlorine from your water. It's super easy to use. You just toss the filter into the tub as it fills with water. I'm excited to use this for bathing our newborn granddaughter when she gets here.

My husband has sensitive skin so this is going to be great for him also. We are looking forward to healthier, softer-feeling skin and less brittle hair. Using this filter will also extend the life of my hair products and make my color more vibrant. 
Next we got the New Wave Barrier Water Filter Pitchers...


These are an excellent option for portable filtered water! They are super easy to use. Simply fill with water and enjoy great-tasting, healthy water in minutes. 

We really like that the filters only need to be changed every 80 gallons. We love the fun modern colors and the fact that they are BPA-free.
Our favorite product we received is the Premium 10 Stage Water Filter...

This 10 Stage Water Filter delivers chlorine-free, odorless, great-tasting water at your kitchen sink. The space-saving, attractive counter-top filter installs easily in seconds to any standard faucet and allows you to easily change between tap water and filtered water as needed.

It removes chlorine, chloramines, herbicides, pesticides, hydrogen sulfide, trihalomethanes, heavy metals like lead, mercury, cadmium, and dozens of other contaminants! 

We love that it goes through 10 stages of protection against major water contaminants! While the comprehensive 10 Stage Filter removal list is impressive, another great benefit the filter offers is what it leaves in your water: the good minerals that keep us healthy! These include magnesium, potassium, calcium, etc.
The 10 Stage Water Filter has a replaceable filter cartridge that will last a family of 4 an entire year! This is approximately 1500 gallons of water. My family loves having delicious filtered water that is healthy for us!

Thank you so very much New Wave Enviro for the excellent products and customer service!!

Now here's the really exciting part...

I get to give one lucky winner a 10 Stage Water Filter!! (Retail Price $124.99)

Pediped Review and Giveaway...

Pediped

Thanks to pediped, I am excited to tell you about their amazing products!


Pediped’s three footwear lines include Originals® (soft soled shoes for children ages birth to 2), Grip ‘n’ Go™ (soft rubber soled shoes for children 9 months to three years) and Flex® (rubber soled shoes for children 1-8 years).

We got some adorable shoes for our granddaughter...


Since she's not here yet, my sweet niece came over to test them out for her soon to be cousin...




We really love each pair! They are high quality, comfy and super cute! It's fantastic that pediped uses only the highest quality leathers. The cute flowers and on the white pair are so pretty! Another cool fact is that these shoes are healthy for your child's developing feet.

They offer more than 120 designs, here are a few...



pediped® footwear was founded in 2005 by Angela and Brian Edgeworth. After their first daughter Caroline was born, Angela started to do a lot of thinking about footwear and the kind of shoes that would be best for her child. She wanted a shoe that was comfortable and stylish and that could be worn both indoors and out. Most importantly, she wanted a shoe that was healthy for her daughter’s feet.
After doing a lot of research, Angela discovered that doctors recommended barefoot walking or soft leather sole shoes, but the choices for infants and toddlers were limited.That is when Angela and her husband Brian decided to create the perfect shoe, which would be the "next best thing to bare feet”.

The Simmons Kids® Slumber Time Elite Gliding Bassinet is perfect and we love it! Outfitted with a soothing side-to-side rocking motion and an electronic mobile that lulls little ones to sleep with its spinning lamb toys, variable speed vibration, calming nightlight and relaxing music. It's finished with plush fabrics, a spiral pattern and a storage basket underneath.

My newborn niece came over to visit and test it out...


 She loved the adorable hanging stuffed animals...

She smiled and was so happy when we turned the music on. Look how cute she is in it...


This fabulous bassinet is designed for infants up to 15 pounds. It's great that the colors are perfect for a boy or girl. We really like that it has soothing music and a soft nightlight. Our granddaughter is going to love the comfy mattress pad! It also has easy access to baby with an adjustable, removable canopy and swivel arm mobile. How cool that it has locking casters for easy room-to-room mobility.

We are very impressed with how good of quality this bassinet is and how soft and plush it feels. We love the basket underneath that can hold some extra toys for quick and easy access when the baby gets fussy. Thank you so very much Simmons Kids for the amazing products and customer service!!

Our Review:

It was really easy to set everything up! We love the advanced features like motion and sound detection, and automatic night vision so we can see what’s going on both day and nightOne of the features I really like is the mobile app. All you have to do is scan the bar code provided to download the app on your phone. It's so cool being able to not only hear our grand-baby but we can see her too. If she starts to get fussy you can talk to her through the two way audio.

I was impressed that it came with blue and pink color accent rings, perfect for a boy or girl.  It can also play soothing lullabies to help calm the baby down and help her sleep. Since we are grandparents, I can see us using this to record video clips that we can share with our friends or other family members. This camera is much more advanced than the baby monitors I had for my kids when they were young. It is definitely a must have for all parents with new babies!

Make sure and visit D-Link on Facebook and Twitter!

Thank you so very much D-Link for the amazing products and customer service!!

Tommee Tippee Review and Giveaway...


Thanks to Tommee Tippee, I got to review some of their fantastic products!!

I was so excited when our items got here...


First, what do we do about milk when mom leaves baby with grandma for a few?

That's no problem with this great product...

Mom can use the closer to nature manual breast pump to give baby all of the benefits of her breast milk, even when she's not there.

It features a soft-touch silicone cup and how wonderful that it is quiet, discreet and easy to control. The BPA-free pump comes in just 3 pieces, making it quick and easy to assemble and clean. We love that this set also came with a microwave sterilizer box!

Next we love the new collection of pacifiers that are approved by babies....


The symmetrical orthodontic nipple has been specially designed to help optimize baby acceptance.



Nipple shape is more like a bottle nipple, for a more familiar feeling for baby. These are BPA free and come in different age stages. We love the cute designs they have to pick from. The nighttime ones even have a glow in the dark ring!

What bottles are best when it's time to feed precious baby?


Closer to Nature bottles of course! They are intuitively designed for easier and more natural feeding. The super-sensitive anti-colic, anti-gas valve helps reduce gas and colic when feeding. BPA & Phthalate free and easy to hold bottle for maximum comfort.

With Closer to Nature Feeding Bottles, switching between breast and bottle feeding becomes easier than ever before. Together with the bottle’s super-sensitive Easi-Vent valve, this encourages your baby’s intuitive feeding action for comfortable, relaxed feeding.



Since 1965, Tommee Tippee has earned a reputation for its clever ideas, product quality and simply intuitive designs that promote natural development at every age, stage and feeding need. My family is really impressed with each one of the items we got!

Cowgirls ‘N Angels 2 Blu-ray Review...



YE-HAW Cowgirls ‘N Angels 2 on Blu-ray!

Oscar® Winner Keith Carradine* (Cowboys & Aliens) stars alongside a young, popular cast that includes Haley Ramm (X-Men: The Last Stand) , Jade Pettyjohn (American Girl: McKenna Shoots for the Stars), and Emily Bett Rickards (Arrow) in this inspiring second chapter of the beloved Cowgirls ’N Angels story!

After she receives unexpected news about herself, a 17-year-old girl (Ramm) experiences an exciting, yet challenging life in and out of the rodeo circuit in this wonderful coming- of-age story. This DVD is filled with heart, horses and high-reaching adventure. “Cowgirls ’N Angels: Dakota’s Summer” is an uplifting reminder that with courage, friendship and passion, anything is possible.

Special Features: 

Behind The Scenes of Dakota's Summer

Cowgirls ‘N Angels 2 Blu-ray:
Street Date:April 15, 2014
Prebook Date:March 19, 2014
Screen Format:Widescreen 1.85:1
Audio:English DTS-HD MA 5.1
Subtitles:English TXT/English SDH/ Latin Spanish/Quebecois
U.S. Rating:PG
Total Run Time:114 minutes
Closed Captioned:Yes

Our Review:

We really liked Cowgirls ’N Angels 2: Dakota's Summer. There is a lot of heartfelt moments in this movie. I liked all of the trick riding the girls would do. It's pretty impressive how they can hang from the side of a running horse like that with one leg. Wow, that looks really hard!

When Dakota first gets to her Grandfather's ranch she isn't happy to be there. But as the summer goes on she forms a bond with a young girl from a foster home. Which brings me to another part I liked is when all of the kids come from the foster home to help with the mini horses. That's so nice of the ranch to give those kids a place they can learn about horses and have fun. It helped make them feel like there are people that care about them. I love to see how Dakota realizes that her family has always been there for her throughout her life.

There is a behind the scenes special feature on the Blu-ray that is interesting to watch also.

E-Cloth Review and Giveaway...


Thanks to e-cloth, my family is excited to tell you about some of their awesome products!


e-auto by e-cloth

Thinking it might have something to do with cars, the boys ran to the box to see what we got...



First, check out the e-auto Dual Action Sponge and the e-auto Dry and Shine Cloth!



The cool sponge is for cleaning grease and dirt from all bodywork, bumpers, lights, trim, chrome and glass. The orange side removes dirt and grime. The stiffer fibers of grey side remove hardened dirt and insects, and tar spots, without scratching. After using the sponge we used the super absorbent dry and shine cloth. It provides a perfect streak-free finish by removing excess moisture and residue that ordinary chamois leave behind.

Next check out the Interior Car Cleaning Kit...



I have a brand new car that I was excited to use this on. The blue cloth worked excellent on my windows and the green cloth on my dashboards, inside doors, and leather upholstery. I love the water atomizer and laundry storage bag this great set came with also!

We love that e-auto products are so powerful they can clean using just water. They will also perform well with a small amount of regular cleaning liquid. Car Cleaning becomes healthy cleaning with an e-cloth. It removes more than 99% of bacteria with just water.

The e-cloth microfiber cloths have 1.6 million fibers per square inch. They are guaranteed for 300 machine washing's. If you take care of them, they will last for years. The inside of my car now has sparking, streak-free windows and a shining interior!

Watch the video below to find out more about an e-cloth...



Excellent more effective car cleaning with less effort.

We are also in love with the brilliant e-cloth for pets line! Rue, Diesel and Angel are all very happy that they got some dog pampering time!

Look how cute, Diesel loves his new towel...



First we used the Grooming Mitt. It removes dirt, bacteria and loose hair. Since our dogs shed a ton, we really like that it has specially created grooming fibers to remove loose hair. It also provides a gently massaging action that leaves fur with a glossy natural sheen. The cream side is great for grooming around their face.

Next we gave them a nice bath and then used the Large Cleaning and Drying Towel. It quickly removes and locks away dirt, mud and bacteria. This towel also absorbs twice as much moisture as a conventional towel and dries four times more quickly. My family loves the large size and how incredibly soft it is! It's also great that both of these products are guaranteed for 300 machine washes!


All of these products are going to be such a huge help at our house. Thank you e-cloth for the amazing products and customer service! Make sure and visit e-cloth on Twitter and Facebook and YouTube!



Now here's the really exciting part...

I get to give one lucky winner either an Interior Car Cleaning Kit or a Large Cleaning and Drying Towel!!
