Jessie Janes Review and Giveaway!  


Valentines Day is sneaking up fast. I have hit
most of the names on my list but I have a couple names
left and not much of a budget left to do it with. Do you
know how hard it is finding the perfect item when you
checkbook has a negative balance and your husband
has confiscated all the credit cards except for the one
you have stashed for a rainy day. Oh, and it also rains
a lot so there isn't a lot of balance there either! Hey,
it is not my fault most of the really good shoe sales
happen on rainy days. But I still have the problem of
getting one of my good friends a gift AND her teenage
daughter. I wish I could just go around with a blank
note pad and flip out IOU notes at will. Then I would
get them something really nice. Till then I will............
wait a minute, I forgot about a product review I just
did for this enchanting little place called Jesse Jane's.
She has a shop on Etsy that has some adorable hand
crafted items that are perfect for gifts and ( ahem ) at
her prices I can even afford one for me too! I have to
face the facts here, there is a 99% chance the boys
are going to forget and I am forced to take matters into
my own hands. At least then I get something I really like!
Jessie Janes does some one of a kind, precious
little pieces she hand crafts out of Scrabble tiles of all
things. She takes a tile and her increadble talent and
paints them with delectable little designs that make your
heart swoon. She has a truck load of styles and as if that
wasn't enough if you don't see something you like (ya, RIGHT!)
she also offers custom creations. Jessie takes pride in what
she does and it shows with her eye for detail and intracate
designs. Her prices are so reasonable it makes her pendants
perfect for not only valentines day gifts but I thought they
would be spectacular party favors for parties, perfect for
that "Oh my, what do I get my child's teacher?" gifts and
a great treat for kids and adults alike for no reason what
so ever. She even has combo packs where you can pick
at set amount and get and even better deal. I think they
are so percious and a perfect complement for every day
where you can grab a bunch and match any outfit you are
wearing. Chains, Bracelets and Keychains or Hairpieces,
they just make the perfect acsessory. I was also thinking
they would make a great funraiser item for your child's
groups where they can sell a product people will not only
enjoy it won't go straight to their hips like those dang
Candy bars and Cookies I can't seem to order in a reasonable
amount. Jessie even has Wedding themed Tiles you can
use for Favors and Gifts if you are a budget or not!
Next year all my Stockings are going to have some as
stuffers for even Andy would get a kick out of a keychain
he can change with his teenage moods!
Jessies bulk prices make them a downright steal
and she always has specials and clearance items that
are a perfect way to stock up for the next year. I loved
her retro tile and her Valentines Day selection is out
of this world. I think the Candy Cane Hearts was my
Favorite for her work is so detailed and awe inspiring
it almost looks 3 dimensinal and could pop right out
at you. If it looked any more real I might be trying to
eat it! All the metal in her tiles is sterling silver and
adds that delicate touch and really makes some of
her more femanine tiles shine. Andrew loves the
Celtic Tiles for he is a fan and if you can think of an
occasion Jessie already has a tile to celebrate it!
With over 345 tiles in her normal inventory I think she
has you covered! Right now she even has a Gift special
going on where is you buy 3 you get 1 free! It just
doesn't get any better! Oh wait, it might, you guys
go get your 3 and send the free one too me!

Jessie has been kind enough to offer a give
away to one of my readers too! She is going to let
one lucky person have the Valentines Day pendant
on a chain all for thier own. To enter just head to
her Etsy shop and take a look around then come
back here and post what your favorite style is. The
contest will start tonight and run to Midnight on
March 18th.
USA and 18 and older can enter daily and the winner
will be contacted by email and have 72 hours to
contact me with their mailing information. As always
you can earn a bonus entry by entering the contest of

Bibs for Dummies Review and Giveaway!  


Rowan has a tooth! Yes, she sprung her first one
about 10 days ago and is already pushing up the next
Daisy. I have been waiting for what seems like forever
to see these pearly whites! ( Oh, gosh, I said the
P word again and I am trying to kick the pearl obsession!)
Any who, it isn't that I am thrilled to see the teeth, this
isn't my first time at the Rodeo and I have seen baby
teeth before. Her first tooth is a big moment and I
am excited but what gets my panties in an even bigger
bunch is the fact this signifies the end of her drooling
like a spigot! I have grown weary of changing little
Babies clothes time after time again through the
coarse of the whole day. Even her Bibs, over and over
again for she soaks through items like they are made
out of tissue. That little 18 pound girl produces more
fluid a day then 10 grown men take and and put out
combined. I have no clue where it all comes from!
Finding Bibs that I like have become a hunt all on
their own.

The other issue I have is now that she has those
little teethys in the front she is all over food! That little
girl has her Daddy's personality to a T and is the most
stubborn thing in the word and insists on feeding herself.
She makes a mess larger then the guys who played
the Mud Football game every summer at our cottage.
If it wasn't for the fact most of what she eats is brightly
colored I may never see the fact she files some away
for later in odd spots like her ear or her nose. Her clothes?
Forget about it, these are stained beyond help! I always
see cute little baby outfits at Garage sales and used to buy them
like a mad woman. In fact I have bought clothes period
for Rowan like a mad woman and now it just about
brings me to tears when I realize I will never be able
to offer her own clothes up at a garage sale for one
time on her and they are toast! Or Apple sauce, or
Peaches, or Blueberry something or other or whatever
else she ate that day! Gone and ruined, that is her Motto!
The last issue I have had in the few weeks before this
post is with teething comes teething toys and rings
and she has them everywhere. I swear I bought like
20 of those when she first whimpered at her sore little
gums and now when she is in an all and all out scream
fest for those little teeth are hurting her I can never find
one. She flings those things like an Olympian Disc
thrower and they are all over the house. If I could just
glue her little fingers to one and have it stay there to
she is a year and a half or so things might not be so
crazy here. Every time I vacuum and move something,
wow, look 14 teething rings!
So the problems I have are her drooling like a spigot,
keeping her clothes clean with a bib that doesn't fall off
or soak through in 10 seconds and keeping her from
loosing everything! They all seem like little things but
when you add them all together it is enough to drive you
mad!

As I was flipping through my favorite Etsy sites
and category's I came across a new place that caught
my eye. Bibs for Dummies! No it is not a book that details
the step by step process on how to tie a bib on baby but
rather the other obvious choice. They sell bibs and really,
you don't have to be a dummies to get a lot of use out of
them either. Her bibs are pretty much everything I have
been missing in a bib and could never find all in one place
before. I could find bibs that were pull over and Rowan
couldn't get them off but those were always real thin or
really cheaply made and after a couple of uses, BAM, they
would fall apart. I have found Bibs that were thick and
absorbent before but that also meant they were heavy and
sometimes even came untied or unvelcro'd before Rowan
even yanked on them due to the weight. Now I have to
admit I have never found a bib with the strap for teething
rings on it before and I can't believe someone never made
one of those for what a No-Brainer when it comes to
ideas!

Bib for Dummies takes a product we all need and
turns it into a stylish, super functional and perfect for
those busy Mom's who don't have the time to not only
change Baby every ten minutes but look for lost teething
rings, toys and pacifiers. They also are a pull over Bib that
makes it imposable for most babies to get off. I have
to say most, for there is always one in every bunch that can
defy all odds. They come in a bunch of different styles so
not matter what your personal one is they have something
you will love. I picked a Beetles theme for review and I just
loved this Bib. I have one or two other pull over bibs and
I just love them! I hate the Velcro bibs and for with my hair,
the dogs hair and everything else that gets stuck in the Velcro
they never work for very long. The ties are too hard to get
a knot that Rowan can't undo or I CAN undo when she is
done and snaps are about the only one I can live with.
Whenever I see a pull over I grab it for they really are the
Bomb but nobody makes them anymore. I had plans on going
through my old towels this week to find ones I can handle
kissing goodbye and just attempting to make my own so I
am super excited I found Bibs for Dummies because now
I don't have too! For a Pull Over all you do it slip it over babies
head and it will stay there to you slip it off! Her Bibs are also
super thick and absorbent so baby stays dry. They are double
layered so even Rowan and her drool factory is no match
and I love the fact that she stays dry for the entire time I
have the bib on her. Around the house I have just been
leaving it on for it makes life so much more easy. Now
the part I liked the best was the ribbon that is sewn right
onto the bib for attaching a toy, teething ring or pacifier
so baby can not play a game of dropsy or practice her
long throw skills. Her Teething rings are going to stay
right on the Bib that is going to stay right where I put
it. Now if I could get baby to stay right where I put her!
Bibs for Dummies has several designs for little
girls and little boys and ones that can go either way. I
love the hip, chic fashions and when I put them through
the Michelle Test for Quality ( I should trademark that!)
they passed with flying colors for they held up like a
champ. The flew through repeated washing and best
of all Rowan who is the ultimate tester for any product,
in fact she is so hard on items I feel like I should send
her off to a clothing company to be inspector 1.7 months
for they need her to check their goods out before they
even leave the factory! Bibs for Dummies stood up to
little miss thing and came back for more. I have to say
I think I have stumbled across the perfect bib and it
just doesn't get much better then this. Perfect Style,
Perfect Quality, Perfect bonus in the attached Toy or
Teething ring holder. Just perfect! Two thumbs up for
Bibs for Dummies!

I have an extra one here for one of you guys too! It
is the Dick and Jane Rectangles and to win it just head
over to the web site and take a look around then come
back here and post your favorite Bib or what you liked
best in a comment. The contest will start tonight and

Wall Decals Review and Giveaway!  


Okay you guys, you know how fascinated I have
become with home decor. I have reviewed paint and
arts and paintings and candles and all sorts of darling
kick knacks and some truly stunning items for the home!
I hope you enjoy me sharing my finds with you for I must
admit you guys are what got me started on the search in
the first place and the fact that I am now hooked and
just can't get enough should be making you feel a little guilty
by now!
Your not!
I know!
All you guys want is more!
I have got the emails and know what you are looking for
and would pretty much go to the ends of the Earth to bring
it to you guys! Lucky for me every once in a while I find
a great one a little closer to home! Remember how a
few months back I did some articles and a review or two
on wall art, those adhesive Wall and Surface Graphics
that make remodeling a room a snap? Well I think I just
found you guys the cream de la cream in wall graphics
for it just doesn't get better then these guys! Wall Slicks
has it all! They offer the largest selection of products I
have ever seen and call me kid in a candy shop for I
just could not get enough and they have me still going
to their site and looking for there is no way to cover everything
they have in just one visit. Plus they are super reasonable
in prices, give you tons of value for your money and their
customer service is off the hook! I was asked what item I
would like to review and right away I got tingles for most of
the time with reviews you get a sample or they have a pre-set
list of items you can review. They just said pick and item.
( Giggle) I tried to restrain myself!

I figured since I did a wall art review and picked an item
for the living room and one where I picked out an item for
Rowans room it would only be fair to pick something out
for Andrews room and told them I loved the Graffiti line
and could I try that. Now if I would have known then what
I know now I would have went in a whole other direction
with my reviews and saved these guys for my Living room
choice for I was thinking they would send a few samples
like the other places did or at best the smallest set they
had but no, they sent the whole kit and caboodle's and more
then enough to do Andrew's whole room and he lives in the
basement. WOW, knock me over with a feather. The pack
had everything in it to complete the room and get an
effect similar to the one in the picture and really really
looks cool. If Andrew would allow cameras in his room to
take a photo I would have one posted ( he is a little embarrassed
by the mess there) but I will try to sneak one while he is
at school but we just got it all done Yesterday. The
Quality also floored me for these were thick and durable
and I swear, made for a room of a person who is lazy
about pre-forming up keep. If all their items are like
this we are in for a real special treat for it is like they
said, hum, ya know this could end up in a teenage boys
room. We better make it extra durable for those guys are
hard on everything. I am more then impressed with
these guys! The Quality, the value and the designs in
general about rocked my world here and when we move
I plan on using them for all my needs for they really
deserve some kudos here.
Now all of their designs are something to write
home about but two category's had me at hello right off
the bat, the modern and the Nature. The Modern category
contains the skyline and the Zen Kanji decals in it and the
first one I saw and fell in love with the second I have had
a thing for before I saw it here and was impressed on how
stunning theirs looked. The nature category just has some
really pretty patterns and also a lot of Whimsical designs
that are perfect for adding youth and life to your house.
The paw prints made me smile a huge grin for you guys
know how important Boo is to my life and I thought it
would be adorable to add this to the corner of the kitchen
where her bowls are and over her toy box and treat jar.
A perfect way to let the whole world and all my guests
know she rules and is respected in my house. I could go
on forever telling you how many must have items I found
from them that I would love to add to my house and
also the few I have already ordered because they are such
a simple way to add some zest and style to an otherwise
boring room that I could not help myself. Plus I got some
extra decorating ideas just checking out the display pictures
they have on their site. On the paw prints page they have little
stuffed horses like the kind you find on a stick over a bed
and I thought that adorable!

Wall Slicks also has a great selection of Holiday themes
and everything for cute and sassy to classic and breathtaking
and instead of going through the pain of hanging Holiday
lights through my house and taking days out of my life
hanging decorations next year I am going to have a
Christmas Tree and these for it takes the hassle out of
a time of year I just want to enjoy. Like I also told you
the quality is un parallel and they are so easy to hang
it could be done by a child. In fact my son helped me
with his room for it had to be just so and though he is
16 when it comes to directions he seldom follows them
for you guys know 16 year old kids know everything and
directions are for dummies. What normally happens is
he screws things up but these are teenager proof and
give Rowan 6 more months and even she could hang some!
So let's go over the check list here
1. Great Selection
2. Stunning designs
3. Above and beyond in the Quality department
4. Easy to use and take care of
5. The customer service is hands down exceptional!
Wall Slicks is a perfect addition to any house and
can transform any room into a room you will not only
be proud of but actually drag people into your house to
see. If you do a small area or a whole room you are
going to be the envy of everyone you know and you can
either share or keep it your little secrete. As for me, I like
to tell the world when I find a place as great as this!
Even better, now remember I told you they rock!, Wall
Slicks is going to make the day of one of my readers and
I mean it! I have a gift certificate for one of my lucky readers
good for $200.00 dollars of their products. Now I told you
they rock! To enter just head over to their site and take a look
around then come back here and post what you have seen in
a comment. The contest will start tonight and run to Midnight
on March 23rd.
18 and older can enter daily and the winner
will be contacted by email and have 72 hours to
contact me with their mailing information. As always

Beaute de Maman Review and Giveaway!  


I have been doing a lot of product reviews for products
to use on your little baby. Their skin and their body's
are super important and it is "the" most important job
in a parents life to find items for them that are not
harmful and are beneficial for their little bodies. What
I have been neglecting to tell you guys about though
are items for Mom before the baby is born! Baby starts
with Mom and how she treats herself during that time
period is just as important and often we neglect ourselves
for the joy and excitement of planning for baby's arrival.
I planned to remedy that and did some research on
products that will not only make Mom to be's life a little
more easy but offer her some much needed relief from
some of the aches and pains and damage baby does
not only to our bodies but to our skin! Moms skin gets
a thorough workout in those 40 weeks before Baby
gets here, Stretched and pulled and BAM, lets double
in size ( or more in my case) our tummy's are yanked
and pulled and our skin is stretched to crazy proportions
and when it is over just left to fend for itself and bounce
back into shape. During the pregnancy we itch and even
burn and the rapid expansion is enough to drive you
mad. I won't even go into the detail of the moisture and
nutrients your little pride and joy is zapping from you
body and skin. I know from month 4 to her birth I felt
like one of the guys but instead of "adjusting" I was
walking around scratching my belly all day long for
it drove me nuts. Now I didn't freak at the stretch marks
with Rowan like I did with Andrew for I figured the
damage was done but I did hate the loose skin with
just as much passion. I would take a shower and be
so steamed over the fact I felt like my body was wrecked
I couldn't tell if the mirrors were fogging because of
the heat from the water or me! Supplements are a must
have and great but they don't help you skin! There has to
be something out there that does!
And there is!

I found Beaute de Maman and I could just about die
when I realize how much I wish I had this last year instead
of now, or better yet, 17 years ago when i was pregnant
with Andrew for I might be willing to wear a bathing suit
now if I did! Beaute de Maman has a full product
line made to pamper Mom when she needs it most. Baby
isn't here yet and we still don't take the time to tend
to our selves and we need to for once they are cuddled
in your arms you won't get the chance to pamper yourself
again for a very long time! Beaute de Maman makes
face and body creams, Scrubs and gels and even a stretch
mark cream that replaces all those lost vitamins and nutrients
baby is zapping and allows your skin to stay soft and supple
and in peak shape so it will be ready to bounce back instead
of flopping around like a half inflated basketball! I was
sent the Facial Scrub for review and let me tell you what,
you don't have to be pregnant to use it! The scrub is awesome
and I could feel it working its magic and removing
those dead skin cells and leaving me with skin as fresh
and healthy as the skin Rowan was born with. I just felt
more vitalized and younger and my skin taunter and
fresh. It is creamy and not at all harsh and the little
beads are super gentle unlike scrubs you might use
at other times. Our skin and faces are at their most
vulnerable during a pregnancy and Beaute de Maman
knows this and treats it like a temple and takes care
to add health back to your body and not seep more
away for baby is already singing that tune. Her line of
products are all Natural and make use of Herbal
ingredients and have been studied and evaluated,
as well as allergy and obstetrician tested. Let me
tell you, nothing feels better on your skin. After Rowan
my skin still itches due to the fact it lost its elasticity
and I used the scrub on my belly as well and it has worked
wonders there too and I am no longer walking around
scratching like a cave man. I love it! And Ladies, if
this is your first child you need to run, not walk, and
grab the cream for stretch marks for the damage your
pregnancy does to your skin now will last a lifetime and
the only way to fix it after the fact is to go under the
knife and I would not want that for anyone! This is a
special blend to keep your skin hydrated and will help
with the prevention of stretch marks and you will
thank me later for telling you about it now! I give
Beaute de Maman a two HUGE thumbs up for she truly
knows how to pamper a Mom and keep her skin healthy
and fresh! They are such a must have for everyone
who is waiting for a little bundle to add to their family!
Beaute de Maman is also being pretty darn awesome
to my readers and are going to give the facial scrub I
tried to 3 of my readers! 3! To enter just head over to
their site and take a look around then come back here
and post what you have learned in a comment. The contest
will start tonight and run to Midnight on March 23rd.

Handstand Kids Review and Giveaway!  

Now you guys know I love to cook and I love
to have the kids help me. Andrew could cook
an entire Holiday meal and has and I plan to
raise Rowan with the same skills. When something
tastes good we have got to rush right home and
figure out how to make it and I have just about
every piece of kitchen equipment there is on the
market, some times several variety's of the same
product because each kind is tweaked to do just
something a little bit different. I also have shelf
upon shelf of cookbooks and always am on the
lookout for more to add to my collection. From
Desserts to appetizers, candy, cakes and sauces
all the way to ethnic food and vegan I have a book
for each or ten! When Andrew was little I started
collecting cook books for children and now it is
huge and I have over 30 titles and they are really
going to come in handy for Rowan. I am not against
adding more though and this next review gave me
a chance to do just that.
Handstand Kids is a store that caters to the
culinary skills of children. They have a host of
characters that guide you and your child through
their cooking adventures and make learning about
the kitchen and food exciting and fun. They all have
unique personalities that reflect the different culinary
styles and flavors and will give your child a zest for
cooking they will never loose! From Ari to Izzy they
have kids to pave the road for you and your family and
not only do they offer cook books they also offer
accessory's too! The book I received was so easy to
follow even a well, child, could follow it and was fun
to boot! I received the Chinese Cookbook and it
was darling. The book came in a Chinese Carry Out
container and was complete with chopsticks. The top
of the page indicated the difficulty level with 1 to 4
chopsticks ( so darling) and it also has handy guides
on ingredients and tells you fun and informative facts
and offers the Ingredients listed in English and in
Chinese. They let you meet the kids and the kids guide
you on you journey and give tips on pricing and what
items are their favorites and many many other things
too! But hey guys, we are here too cook so I picked
something simple to test out the recipes that you
guys could make with your own kids as well! The recipe
I am listing is a one chopstick skill level and something
we all love! The book offers more detail such as Tools and
alternatives but with this you will get the gist!
The Emperor's Favorite Treat
Chocolate Noodle Clusters

Ingredients
2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons of unsalted butter
2 1/2 cups of Chinese Chow mien noodles
1 1/4 cup of salted peanuts

Microwave stirring every 30 seconds. Heat until the

In a large bowl toss the noodles and peanuts together

Natures Baby Organics Review and Giveaway!  


When looking at baby care items it is so hard to
know what to get and make the right choices. You
are just undated with options and you just can't
drive your pediatrician insane with phone calls for
over the counter items like chest rubs and soaps
and baby oils and powders. They would pretty
much think you are nuts if you called them at
8 PM and asked, "Hey there doctor so and so, I am
looking at the 300 brands of Baby shampoo and I
am not sure what kind to buy. Should I got with No
More Tears or is the is the Aveeno better?" Not only
would you get a bill in the mail, chances are they would
hang up on you too! Over the counter items are the one
thing we as parents have to figure out ourselves. Now
Doctor so and so will let you know when to use Tylenol
and if a pain reliever is even needed but diaper ointments
and lotions, we are on our own. It is enough to drive you
mad too! One thing I am very thankful for is with Rowan
I have the organic option where as with Andrew I didn't.
No matter the brand, Organics are always they best choice
but I now face the decision of whittling down one brand
to the next. Now that I have done the research and made
the stead fast choice to only use organics I have to
find out what the best label is to use now that I know the
type of products. Do a Google search of Organic Baby
Products and you will just about fall over. There is literally
hundreds if not thousands of options out there. I about
wanted to cry!
I did a truck load of research and sent out some
letters and one of the products I was the most excited
about was Natures Baby! When speaking to them I told
them Rowan has been fighting a cold forever now and
asked what they would recommend and was sent some
chest rub for review. Can I get an Hallelujah! This stuff
rocks! I have been using Vicks in the steamer and
I was scared to death to put in right on Rowans chest.
Now I grew up with my Grandmother putting it on mine
but let's face it, I was a child and I can't remember how
old I was the first time she used it on me and even if it
was appropriate for back in the good old days parents
did some pretty off the wall things to sooth their kids
that would cause parents to fall over dead in shock now.
Even if Vicks was a good idea, my Grandmother is not
around any longer for me to ask so I am pretty much on
my own. Babies have so much more sensitive skin then
adults for face it, they are new and it is so important
for us to treat it with care for even though it is new it
is also the skin they will have forever and as parents
we are responsible for keeping baby very safe and
cared for. Natures Baby Organics took the worry away for me
because this was made just for her and I didn't have
to panic when I used it that I was doing the wrong thing.
The chest Rub is specially formulated by an expert to
assure safety for infants, this rub is 95% USDA certified
organic. AND IT WORKS! I put this right on Rowan's chest
and rubbed it in and for the first time in weeks little
baby could sleep and breath and not wake up for her
little nose was so stuffed she was not getting enough
air. There is nothing more heartbreaking for a parent
then to see thier child suffer. Natures Baby offers your
child relief and when they have it Mom and Dad have it
too! I loved the fact that I can rub it on her little chest
with confedance and know I am doing something good
for her and helping her without tossing a bunch of
chemicals and other things I do not even want to know
about all over her little chest. For what an adorable little
chest it is!


Natures Baby offers a full product line and they
carry everything from Shampoo and Detanglers to
lotions, powders and Diaper Creams. They even have
some of the funner sides of items for your little
bundle of smiles and offer Bubble Bath and soothing
items such as calming spray and they have a soothing
stick for those Ouchies! Mom and Dad, they thought of
you too and have a all Purpose Deoderizer to make
those icky yucky diaper pails smell a little bit better
for there is nothing worse then the smell of babies
daiper pale on a hot summer day! Natures Baby is
created by a Mom who just about fainted when she
did a little research on the items she was putting on
her childrens skin. Items she could not even pronounce
she was rubbing in just taking the advertizings word for
it that it was good and when she got it in her head
to check on these ingrediants she decided enough was
enough and she was going to make something she
could use and not loose sleep over. The result is
products that benifet us all and leaves everyone
who uses them with a sense of comfort they are
giving their kids only the best and include ingreediants
you can not only pronouce you can grow them youselves
for there is nothing better then fresh, natural
products for your child! Her line is so good that
not only baby can enjoy thier perks they also rock
at helping people with skin conditions too! Those
of us with eczema and sensitive skin can also
reap the benifets of using her lotions and powders
and not only get some much needed relief but help
in clearning up theri skin. Her items have been
featured everywhere and in Magazines such as
People and American Baby as well as TV shows
and E online and many many many more. You will
be as hooked as I am with just a taste of her skin
cream or Shampoos and your Baby will thank you
for a lifetime to come! After Rowan was able to breath
with the Ah Choo Chest Rub she was able to sleep
and we all know to feel better you need your rest
and with-in just a couple of days of me starting with
the chest rub she was back at full strength and ready
to get into trouble whenever she could. I will tell you
what, chasing around a Healthy Baby intent on
discovery can be a pain but watching her suffer is
hertbreaking and I would rather do the chasing any
day of the week!

Natures Baby Organics is also doing something special for
my readers! One winner will get thier choice of items
from her product line, excluding the gift sets, to enjoy
and fall in love with like I did. The Lotions, Powders
and creams or whatever your heart desires! To enter
just head over to the site and take a look around then
come back here and post what you have learned in a
comment. The contest will start tonight and run to mid-
night on March 21st. USA and 18 and older can enter daily and the winner

Nacho Mama Tees Reivew and Conest!  

Ever had something to say but knew people
would give you the look if you did? Well don't say
it, wear it! Nacho Mama Tees has a shirt for just
about every occasion. From snappy comebacks,
TV shows, down and out silly or you can even
explore your dark side and let your boss know
how you really feel, Nacho Mama has all your
needs covered.

A lot of their shirts say the things I have always
wanted to but never had the nerve to say it. They
make it funny too boot! More of their T-shirts take
you back to a better day and you will find yourself
surrounded with people pointing and telling you they
remember that! ( I hear banjo music!)These shirts
make great gifts for the Holidays and are even better
gifts for yourself. I must warn you though, these are not
your Mama's shirt!

Andrew received a shirt for review and it was not only
hysterical it was fantastic in the Quality department. Now
this shirt was reviewed by a 16 year old boy who goes
through clothes like you can just rub a Gennie lamp and
have an endless supply. I almost didn't give them the
Michelle Test for I didn't think it would be fair. He is
so hard on clothes that I thought this would be more then
enough of a testament to the shirts quality but as
I was thinking this Andrew walked into the room with
yet another piece of clothing he had ruined ( how do
you put holes in blue jeans less then a month
old? ) and put me in a sour mood so to get out of it
Nacho Mama went through the ringer, LITERALLY!
I washed and pulled and poked and prodded like a
woman on fire and I can not believe how durable
the shirt is. Not only did it pass my test I was thoroughly
impressed with the fact it is super thick and not all
thin and flimsy like most guy shirts are now a days. I
always compare them to toilet paper, you get the one
ply or the triple ply and the shirts lately are supposed to
be the triple ply for the price you pay but what they
do is take the triple ply and make three shirts out of
it and you are left with one ply garbage. Not here,
this shirt will rock for a while. Now, I also have had the
shirt for about ten days for I told you I was going to put
it through the ringer and Andrew has worn it 8 times
in those ten days for he layers his clothes and will wear
another over the top so it doesn't look like he is
wearing the same thing over and over again. I washed
it 10 times extra in those days and it was on Doctor
Damages body as well and is still perfect and not even
the slightest hint of being stretched out. The shirt is
da bomb, no doubt about it!

Add in the fact they have a great selection,
loads of funny quips and snappy comments and you
have a T-shirt to tell Mama all about. Great shirt, great
price and they eve beat the boy. I wonder what Chuck
Norris would say about that?


Now for the really good part, I told them how much I
loved them and they said they wanted to give you guys
a shirt too! All you have to do is head on over and tell
me what shirt you would pick and leave a post telling
me the shirt and size for the lucky winner is going to
get it sent right to their house! The contest starts
tonight and runs midnight march 23rd.
USA and 18 and older can enter daily and the winner
will be contacted by email and have 72 hours to

Crazy Dog T-shirts Review and Giveaway!  

Hard to shop for relatives Beware! We have
the cure for you fickle guy blues! Crazy Dog T-shirts!
I must say they have a shirt for every personality and
when I first found their site a while ago I bust out
laughing and my son ran into the room to see if
he finally had his chance to send me off to the loony
bin and get me out of his hair!



I had a blast taking a stroll down memory lane
in the 80's section and since when did the high-
lights of my youth become retro! From safe to down
right don't let your Mama read this, the place has it
all!
My son loves their Chuck Norris Shirts and wants
to collect them all so if any of you guys wanna.........
well, never mind, but all you have to do is check out
the home page and next time you check your watch you'll
find three hours have went by and you haven't laughed
that much in years.


Let's not forget the even better stuff! They are in
inexpensive and offer free shipping when you purchase
four or more shirts. They have shirts for men, women and
kids and even costumes for you and your dog. Prices
start at 9 bucks and everyday they have a special for
only $6.99. You just can't beat that! In fact how I found
out about them is I was searching for a shirt as a gift and
everywhere I looked it was around 20 dollars. I even tried
Ebay for this was for a joke and I just didn't want to spend
20 bucks. I was just about ready to throw in the towel and I
found these guys! Now, well let's just say I tell what kind of
mood my son and Husband are in just by reading their shirts
everyday.

I received a shirt I have had my eye on for a while for
review, the boys are stupid throw rocks at them and was
tickled pink as the shirt to get it! It is delicate as us
females are but don't let the girly style fool you for I gave
it the Michelle Test and its dainty design does not change
the fact it is durable as all get out. I loved the light weigh
feel of it and I was really excited for even though places
say we have T-shirts for Ladies most of the time you just
get a guy style shirt that has a girly picture on it but this
one has been made for the gals the whole way. I have
worn it a bunch for I love rubbing it in the guys faces
and it fits perfect and not only still looks bright and vibrant
it still has kept its shape and I have a bad problem with
sticking my knees under something and stretching it out!
With tons of designs to choose from and great fashion,
quality and pricing you just can't go wrong with these guys!
In fact to buy else where would be Crazy, Dog!

Now for the really good part, I told them how much I
loved them and they said they wanted to give you guys
a shirt too! All you have to do is head on over and tell
me what shirt you would pick and leave a post telling
me the shirt and size for the lucky winner is going to
get it sent right to their house! The contest starts
tonight and will run to Midnight on March 22nd!

Costumes for Less Review and Giveaway!  


What little girl does not like to be a Princess? I
mean Daddy always treat their little girls like one
but sometimes they need just a little more. Little
boys like to play in the yard and get all down and dirty
and little girls like to play pretend and wear Mommy's
shoes and dress like a star. In fact dress up was
one of my favorite things to do. I still remember to
this day a pair or red, white and blue patten leather
boots my mother had that went up to her knees and
my thighs or higher. The were so 60 with thick soles
and she had a jacket to match or at least pretty close
and I loved to dress in it. Now my mother was not
a dress person but she had the hippy styles down
pat and some pretty neat goodies there to get into.
My Grandmother was Mrs Dress but even then I knew
her taste and mine we not the same. Nothing she had
resembled a Princess or Movie Star in anyway so I
never had the hankering to wear her dresses but I hit
up her Jewelry Drawer as often as I could and she had
no problem passing on old beaded Necklaces to me
to wear. Now these were the good old seventy's so when
we played dress up we made do with hand me downs and
our Moms closet but now a days things have really changed.
Costumes are so affordable and you can get Crowns and
Tiera's at the dollar store and even some little plastic
high heels. Dressing up and Playing pretend has gone
to a whole other level and the Kitchen sets look better
then my real one and you can buy ready made boxes
of outfits and accessory's fit for well, a Queen! Even
Birthday party themes have got into the act. For Andrews
first and Second Birthday I hired a clown and then a
magician and the kids had a blast that way but for
Rowan I can have a Birthday party in a box where all
the little girls dress up as Princesses or Fairy's or
even just pile on the glam. It all comes right to you door
and you just let the people know how many guests will
be there. Too bad I do not know many little girls ( maybe
1!) and I am going to have a hard time convincing Rowans
cousins to dress up as a princesses when they are all
Princes!
One of my things I insist on doing for Rowan and I
am sure it every little girls dream is to buy a Vanity for her
room and a Wardrobe and fill it with Dresses and outfits
for her to wear and play in. When we move it will be the
first thing I work on and I have already started collecting
outfits now. I would also love an old steamer trunk to
put her little dress up shoes in and some old fashioned
hat boxes and can't wait to the summer so I can hit some
garage sales to look for those items and handfuls of costume
Jewelry. If the house we buy has a large enough basement I
am going to add building a stage to John's Honey Do list
and I am going to borrow some of the concert lighting for
the show! Now I know I am going over board with the
basement but you got to remember a couple of things,
yes, she will be spoiled. I have waiting a lifetime for a little
girl and I was a tomboy myself then later in life wished I
did some more girly stuff so this is my chance to fix
that with her. The other is the Stage would get more then
just Rowan for a user for John's band Practices all the time
and they do it at his brothers now but it is an hour drive
so if he had the basement all set up they could do it here
instead. Right now we live in a Condo so the basement is
not very large and Andrew's room takes up most of it. The
new house will have him back in a Bedroom for he will
only be there a year or so before he is off to school and
a dorm so he will no longer crave 700 square feet of roaming
room to call his own. This means I can have the basement
back we used to use as a rec room and I plan on claiming
a little part of it for Rowan and I!

My hunt for dress up clothes has been long but
unlike other long searches this one has been fun. Where
else do you get to check out costume shops and novelty
shops and vintage dress boutiques and browse through all
the spectacular dresses and dream about being a princess
yourself. Then when your Hubby asks what you did all
day you get to play it off like it isn't how you
really want to be spending your time and make the
Hubby feel bad for doubting you and say since you are
working so hard for other people why don't you find a
little something for yourself? See, a twofer! I have went to
a lot of vintage stores looking for dresses and though I have
found some really beautiful items I had a big problem with
finding ones that were anywhere near a child's size. Long
gone are the days where Parents dress their children in
formal clothes and it really isn't any fun for the kids to
go and play dress up with a dress they can find on the
rack at Kohl's right now. They want glamor and style and
long flowing skirts and pink taffeta and Empire waists.
I also checked out the little kits at the store and found
a few that were super sweet and grabbed them. The problem
there isn't that they don't fit or make her feel like a princess
and there are only like 5 styles. I want her to be able to
play dress up and have a selection. To be able to play
with her little friends and not all have to wear the same
outfit. I have done some awesome reviews for a couple
of places that sell Tu Tu's and those are coming up but
I still had the dress issue. Then I thought, why at
Halloween they have tons and I mean tons of costumes
that are not only a Princess but a flapper, a rock star, a
Fairy, a hippy. Why you can find clothes for every single
theme you can imagine and more. If your child even thinks
about becoming an Astronaut for 32 seconds before moving
on to a Cow Girl or Boy you can encourage their dreams by
getting them an outfit to help hold their attention just a
little bit longer.

Long gone are the days when Mom spent her twilight
hours working on that perfect costume for her little
trick or treat-er. Or even kids who made it themselves,
for I remember working for weeks on a cardboard box that
I transformed into a TV when I was like 8 or 9. The bummer
there is when I finally got to wear it the weather did not
agree and it started to pour. By the time I got home I
was covered in poster paint and in tears. Now you
can just hit an Internet site or walk into a store and get
everything you need, the dress, the accessory's and the
thrill of wearing it, all in one little kit that costs less then
a pair of shoes at Pay less. I could not believe my friends,
a lot of whom swear they know everything, did not refer
me to a costume shop when I was asking them over and
over again for ideas on where to get clothing to start building
a dress up collection for Rowan. I went crazy for a week
making a list of themes I wanted to get for her ( we must
remember folks, Rowan is still a baby, this is my quest not
hers right now!) and ended up with over 130 different styles
I wanted to cover. Why that would be a fantasy closet every
little child could dream of! Now I was not going to buy them
all at once for I have about 2 years before she will even
get around to asking but I know a lot of you have kids who
like to do this now. Further more I did check out some retail
stores that sell dress up wear but boy were they pricey and
a costume store not only has a wider selection they
also don't break the bank!

I searched a ton but I got hung up on Costumes for Less!
When you go to their web site right in the corner it says they
have everything and boy, they were not joking. I found
everything on my list plus added a bunch more! I also
cracked up for they have the largest line of Pet costumes
I have ever seen and since Rowan and Boo are so close......
well, let's just say I feel bad for that little pooch sometimes!
There were 2921 outfits in the Children's section alone and
Rowan could have dreams of being anything from a doctor to
Little Miss Muffet and more! I was so impressed I wrote them
and let them know that I planned on sharing this find with
my readers and they sent an outfit for review. I was sent an
Adorable Princess dress that has twinkle lights in the skirt.
I was just about drooling as I opened it and floored with
the quality. I just didn't expect it to be so nice for the
price it was listed at. Plus, it has twinkle lights! Now
it is a little large for Rowan to wear right now, like I said
Baby, not ready for dress up unless it is to humor mom,
but when she is ready that little baby will be the sharpest
princess in the court! The have costumes that range in
price from $7.95 cents all the way up to $195.00 and
your child can be anything from a Jedi to Raggedy Anne,
a Zoo Keeper to Wonder Woman. Kings, Queens, Zorro
and a Bee! The list would go on for ever. I have flat out
decided that this is the way to go and Costumes for Less
has saved me more time then I care to admit for I would
have looked from one side of the Earth to the other before
I found a store half as good as this one. Did I mention
the Twinkle Lights? No longer do we have to wait to
Halloween to encourage our children's dreams and Fantasy's
for at these prices your kids can try on a new dream whenever
they get the urge! Costumes for less can also meet your
Halloween and Party needs too, after all that is what they
were built for and offers literally thousands of choices from
Infants and Pets to Adult. For Halloween you can find daring
and sexy for Mom a Couch Potato to highlight Dad's in
the natural world and Pooch can be part of the fun by
dressing up like the little devil she already is! Already
have the costume but its just missing that certain something,
something? They have you covered there are well with loads
of accessories that can add the frosting to any cake! Now you
don't have to be a nut case like me and go all out to have a
dream dressing room for your child that rivals a Hollywood
movie set but if you are looking for something for your
kids, something for a costumes party's or just ideas for
next Halloween, Costumes for less has a vast selection
of great items all at a reasonable prices and they have it
year round! My review of costumes for less may be coming
to an end but my opinion of them is threw the roof and
I will be shopping there for many years to come! Who knows,
next time I tell you my kids and the pooch are acting like
Monsters it might just be because they are! Grrrrrrrrrr!
Costumes for less for also kind enough to offer a costume
of their choice for your little girl or boy! Did I mention mine
came with twinkle lights? To enter just head over to their
site and take a look around then come back here and post
what costume you like best in a comment. You never know,
that could be the costume you win! The contest starts tonight
and will run to midnight on March 19th.
USA and 18 and older can enter daily and the winner
will be contacted by email and have 72 hours to

Head Organic Hair Care Review!  

Every once in a while I get a chance to do a
product review for an item I am really excited
about. Something that not only lives up to their
claims on the bottle or advertising but goes
above and beyond my expectations. A product
so good I would share it with you if they asked
for a review or not. A Product I will continue to
buy no matter how hard it is to find or difficult
it would be to get my hands on. Even if I had
to offer up Andrews Lawn Care services for the
next ten summers for free just for a lead on who
might have it in stock at the moment. If I have
to trade John and all his accessory's for a sample
I would do it!


Head Organics is one of those products!

Now you guys all know the huge laundry list
of issues I have with my hair. It is dry and damaged
and extremely hard to manage. It is thick and tangles
easy and fizzes at the mear mention of the word
Humidity. It has a natural wave that turns into
frizzy curls if I don't spend hours in the bathroom
smoothing it down with gallons of product that costs
and arm and a leg and a foot and an ear or more.
Pretty plain and simple, my hair is wreck and the best
I can hope for is to find something that makes the
curls and waves look like I sorta did it on purpose
and go with the flow for straight hair that is smooth
and sleek has pretty much been out of the program
for me! Then I got the chance to review Head Organics
and MOMMA I AM HOME!
I got in the shower and brought the 2 in 1 shampoo
and conditioner with me. The moment I put it on my
hand I knew this was something special. My first clue,
the thickness. I mean it, never before have I felt a
product so thick for it was almost solid. Take whatever
you would consider the thickest shampoo you have
ever tried and triple that then times ten and you might
be close to the consistency of their shampoo. What that
meant was I had to work it in to my hair and scalp and
instead of the 2 minute hair ritual I have grown used to
it took me a good 10 minutes just to work it in and then
get it out. You also know when you are doing it right
for it didn't lather until you had it rubbed in just the
perfect amount then all over a sudden like Ali Baba
and his lamp, presto chango, bam, Suds up the wazoo
and I could feel the tingle of the shampoo doing its dance.
Once out of the shower I used the leave in conditioner
and brushed it straight. I took a breather and went
and spent some time with the little cutie just to let
it dry a little before I whipped out the hair dryer for
my hair is so long and so thick if I blow dry the whole
thing I will be standing in the bathroom for the better
part of an hour. When I saw myself in the mirror I was
pretty darn shocked to say the least for my hair
was drying smooth and there were no tell tale signs
of the curls I always get. I decided to dry it as is and
see where it led me. A few hours later I was back
and OH-MY-GAWD you would not believe the perfect
results I had. Smooth and shiny and only a fraction
of the frizz I normally had. Really impressive and
even more so for when I don't use a hair dryer the
frizz goes from bad to Hello who filled the house
with Static electricity. I used some of the anti Frizz
serum and that little bit turned to No Frizz and I
was skipping all over the house singing like an
insane person telling everyone in the house, "Look
at my hair, look at my hair, I look better then you, I
look better then you!" and pretty much acting like
a fruit cake. In fact I felt so good about myself (
isn't it funny how good hair just makes you feel good
all over) that I went out last night and that is why
this was not posted then. I have not went out for well
over a year and I had a blast dancing the night away!
More then once a complete stranger told me I had
Beautiful Hair and more then once John had to stumble
around for a better complement just to keep pace. I
just felt glamorous and have not felt that way since
years before I had Rowan. Really, they made my decade
and I would hire a sky writer if John had not taken the
credit cards and hid them when I started babbling
about it! He knows I am just kooky enough to do it!
Speaking of John, he tried the Gel and for the
first time in almost as long as I have known him he
looked fashionable and good instead of sporting that
helmet head deal you get with a lot of firemen and police
men. That little more then a buzz cut garbage I hate to
death. Well his has grown out a little since his last
cut and was just starting to look better and with the
Gel it looked fantastic. I might even be seen in public
with him more often if he keeps using it! If you think
I am exaggerating about the before hair style just check
out his picture on the site, total helmet head those guys
are so found off. You can pretty much look at a guy with
a cut like that and know he is one of three things, a Cop,
a Fireman or in the service. You would think after John
retired he would have found some style! Now Andrew
would not try the Gel or Mouse for he is a Mans man and
at 16 is still to young to temp his image with using any
product that a real man might have issues with but he
also is nuts about his blond locks and a huge fan of
Crew's Styling wax and I got him to try Heads and again.
WOW, these guys are even better. His words were, "yo,
Mom, this stuff ain't as Gunky as the Crew Stuff. I can
even touch my hair after I put it on without a big yuck
moment." In English I think that means he really liked it
and I have to say when he had this on compared to
his normal wax I could tell a difference in the fact the
Crew makes his hair look darker for it coats his hair
and with the Head you could see his true color for it
is such a better product it let his hair shine through and
you know that means it can still breath. All around every
member of the Family had a great reaction to Head
Organics and they are so going to be in our shower
from now on. When you find something even the guys
rave about and Andrew hid the Wax in his room in case
I had to give it back, you just can't take it away from
them. Even if I could find something in that room! In
fact the only one who did not go on and on about how
great they are is Rowan and well, that is because she
doesn't have hair yet! Give her time she will be a fan too!

Toothbrush Hygiene Helper Review!  



Okay, there is always a bunch of stuff going on
in our house. With 2 kids, John and I and the
dog we don't always have things super clean around
here and the stream of visitors doesn't subtract from
the chaos at all. The worst part is we only have one
bathroom and it is in constant use. Even the dog
lives in our bathroom. In and out all day long and EW,
men, I sometimes need a truck load of air fresheners for
the rest of us to even step foot in there once they leave.
I know we only have 2.5 kids but it is still so bad I have
often thought of handing out numbers for who's turn it
is to use the bathroom now. With a bathroom that
busy sometimes it can get just plain nasty!

What is worse is things like our toothbrushes and
wash clothes are left out in the open to absorb all
that nasty ickyness and germs and I swear I shudder
some mornings when I see the condition the room is
in from the night before and the fact I now am putting
a toothbrush in my mouth that has weathered that storm.
GROSS!
Now we have a toothbrush holder but it doesn't do anything
to protect the brushes from the germs and all around
disgusting of the bathroom. Sponge Bob made a great
holder but sucks for sanitary reasons. I also have those
plastic cases for the brushes but those are the biggest
hassle to use for you have to store them in a drawer for
they roll away on a shelf or the counter and I live with
lazy people who would never do something as responsible
as to put an item away for that might take an extra
3 seconds and heaven forbid anyone take the time
to do something right around here unless it is
me. SO how do I stop the germs and worse yet, their germs
from getting all over my toothbrush. They might not
care but I sure do! I did a little checking around and
found the coolest gadget and we all know how much
Michelle loves a gadget! The toothbrush hygiene helper
made my life a lot more easy! Not only does this make
it a snap to put your toothbrush away after use and
easy to grab it keeps them safe and tidy and the fact
that is is mounted on a wall is a surefire way to ensure
everyone in the house uses it. When it is right in front
of your face you almost have to use it for it calls to
you softly, okay, joking but I just took out the other
holder and even my lazy boys found it a snap to use
for it was in easy reach.

The toothbrush hygiene helper protects your
brush from Germs and Gunk, mildew and anything else
that might hit those bristles that go in your mouth with
a stylish container that features a removable spindle
for easy cleaning and holds four brushes. There is a top
cover so when not in use you pop on the lid and nothing
gets in! You can mount it on your wall or set it right on
he counter, either way you know you are protected and
don't have to worry about what or who might be spreading
itself around your bathroom and you can brush with
confidence. I saw some study not that long ago about
how many germs that are on an average tooth brush and
that just flushing your toilet is enough to spread some
pretty nasty ones and that kept me up for days, with the
toothbrush hygiene helper I can finally sleep again.

The fact it looks good and is simple to use are just
perks when you think about the fact you are protecting
your family from things like cleaning products, hairspray
or perfume as well as germs and you can also just toss
it in the dishwasher for cleaning and I love that for with
Mr Sponge Bob I have to soak him all day in bleach water
then scrub like the dickens for soap buildup from being
so close to the dispenser is out of control. There are 5
different color choices and you can use the holder
with or without the wall mount and all at a reasonable
price. I have to say it may not be one of the more
glamorous review I did but it sure lets me rest easy
knowing I am doing something good to protect my family
and their health. These guys are two clean and sanitary
thumbs up from me!!
