S.O.S Pads Make the Tough Jobs Easier! Win a Years Supply!

What is your most dreaded chore in your house? Mine is cleaning the showers, but thankfully S.O.S pads makes my life a little easier. S.O.S pads really cut the grime quickly and have my tubs and showers look so much better than before. They also work amazingly well for sinks and around the sink faucets. Pretty much any tough clean you may have, S.O.S pads are perfect to cut the grime...whether on dishes, the grill, outside, or water stains! These little pads with the soap built right in are pretty perfect for cleaning anything.

It is mentioned on the S.O.S site that the pads can be used to clean golf clubs, degrease ovens, or even revive garden tools.

  • America’s #1* selling soap pad
  • Use indoors and out
  • Ideal for kitchen, bathroom, garage and patio
  • Available in three fresh scents: Regular, Lemon and Lavender

Win a Kids Book Title from Regnery Kids!

To me, The Peanuts mean it is holiday time, so when I was offered three new Peanuts Collections books to review I jumped at the chance to share my childhood love with my boys! 

I was lucky enough to be sent three new titles from Regnery Kids:
  • What's the Big Idea, Charlie Brown?
  • Who Cares, Charlie Brown?
  • Where Did You Go, Charlie Brown?
What's the Big Idea, Charlie Brown?
"Charlie Brown and his friends are throwing a party to celebrate great inventions! To prepare for the party, everyone in the Peanuts gang is coming up with a favorite “big idea” from history. But Charlie Brown has a problem: he can’t think of any big ideas! Rediscover history’s great inventions—and learn about a very important inventor you’ve never even heard of before—in this fun and enlightening new Peanuts story. "

I love that this book is both fun and educational. I did find that it was a little over my toddler's head and definitely a book that my older son and I could enjoy much better together! I love that it names great inventors and inventions throughout time.

Santamedical Electronic Tens Pulse Massager

I have been hearing a lot lately about tens units! Since I have, what is sometimes pretty painful neck pain I thought I would give it a try. I received Tens Handheld Electronic Pulse Massager Unit from Santamedical and my husband and I have both been very happy with the results. It is very easy to use, you simply place it on your spot of chronic pain or stiffness and set it to the massage setting that you want. A medium intensity massage works well for my, but because my husband has pain in his lower back, he has found a higher intensity works best for him.

tommee tippee The Tale of the Gingerbread Man!

I have loved tommee tippee Closer to Nature since I first learned about them. My youngest son has loved them too and they are the ONLY bottle that he would take as a baby. As a toddler, the Closer to Nature pacifiers are now the only ones he wants. Even though I absolutely loved the functionality of the Closer to Nature (closest thing to breast feeding) line, I was always bummed because the bottles were sort of plain. When I first started buying them, they were only available in white, but slowly started adding colors and now even fun prints on the bottles!! 

tommee tippee just came out with a NEW line that is exclusive to Babies R Us called The Gingerbread Story! 

"The gingerbread collection by tommee tippee is a limited edition collection of essential baby products decorated so that they bring to life a magical fairy tale world where the gingerbread people live.The designs feature wonderful scenes of seasonal festivities, gorgeous gingerbread houses, delicate snowflakes and stockings brimming with presents, ready for the holiday season."

Book Review: National Geographic's Cook Books.

I love cook books. I can't help but browse each one I come across and more times than not, they end up on my shelf at home. Now that I'm a mom and meals are more important than ever before, I try to offer the best, healthy food I can to my family. It's funny how motherhood makes you second guess everything.

For me, it's not just putting a well balanced meal on the table. It's about flavor, budget, health and planning smart. Every time I turn around there is an article, a new piece or television doctor throwing another food at me touting it's health benefits. It is all quite confusing. I searched, with disappointing results, for one resource that had each food listed with what it provided. That is why I really like the National Geographic cookbooks I received. National Geographic has dedicated this year to "The Future of Food," exploring issues surrounding how we eat today and we can provide food for all as the world's population grows. And, since National Geographic is a trusted company, I don't have to worry they are trying to sell me snake oil in the form of the latest fad fruit.

Powell & Mahoney

When most people think of the holiday season, they start thinking of parties, get togethers and so on. I know when I go to parties that are mainly for adults I like to bring something with me. Some people don’t like alcohol, so I like to bring an option that will please everyone, a non-alcoholic option that if you want you can add to it. Powell & Mohoney asked if I would check out a few of their flavoring. I’m always up to trying new drinks so I definitely said said yes.
