Cindy was awesome enough to send my little one the Sunshine Market for review...

California Innovations Diaper Bag and Soft Cooler Review

With a new baby on the way, I am always looking for a "better" diaper bag. - One that holds everything my baby needs.  California Innovations has an incredible diaper bag!  Its called the Ultra Light Hobo Diaper Bag!  So what makes this bag so awesome?  We,  it fits a TON of stuff!!!

Have you heard of Kidorable?  Its an adorable, or should I say "kidorable" kids company!  They sell rain coats, rain boots, and other outdoor wear.  But they also sell some absolutely fantastic indoor things, like bookends.  The fantastic folks at Kidorable were kind enough to send us a set of their Dancer Bookends to review...

PB Crave Peanut Butter Review

I love finding new, interesting, and healthy snack items for my little one - and myself, so I was THRILLED when PB Crave contacted me about reviewing their fabulous peanut butter!  But this is no ordinary peanut butter!  NO WAY!  PB Crave takes peanut butter to a whole new, INCREDIBLE level! 



The Happy Plate Review

I love finding new and creative dinnerware for my little one to use.  I especially love when it also encourages healthy eating habits!  The Happy Plate does both of those things!!!



This plate is great because it teaches your kids about proper portions and a balanced meal.  I also love that it helps me as I dish out my little one's meals!  I often find myself forgetting something, like a fruit or a grain.  Now, that's not horrible in and of itself.  Every meal isn't gonna have all of those things.  But sometimes I find myself thinking, "When was the last time I fed her a healthy grain?"  This plate helps remind me of what I need to do to give my angel a balanced meal!

Velata Fondue Review

Ok.  I love chocolate.  I'm just gonna start this review by making that perfectly clear.  I love chocolate.  I can't say that enough.  I really love chocolate!  So, you can imagine how THRILLED I was when Kim from Velata Fondue contacted me about doing a review!  I was seriously elated!!!  :)

The folks at Velata have discovered an easier way to make delicious fondue!  You see, Velata was invented by the folks at Scentsy!  They decided that, just like with their fragrance warmers, they could make a fondue pot that was a plug-in chocolate warmer!  OH GLORY!!!



How brilliant is that!!!  I chose to receive the Curve Velate Fondue Warmer in Blue Razz.  Each warmer also comes with 4 matching fondue forks!

Tiny Love Follow Me Fred and Super Mat Review

You may remember that, a couple of months ago, I did a review of the Tiny Love Sunny Stroll.  We love that item!  Its so much fun for baby and so versatile!  Well, the AWESOME folks at Tiny Love were kind enough to send a couple more items for review!  The first item we received was the Super Mat...

This mat is so big, it was hard for me to get a picture, so I just took a picture of it in its packaging!

Natures Paradise Baby Products Review

I remember when my first little one was born.  She had a HORRIBLE case of cradle cap.  She also suffered with some pretty rough diaper rashes.  I'm convinced that the harsh chemicals in most baby bath products were to blame.  Thankfully, I've found a new company with some great products for out upcoming baby - Natures Paradise Organics!  Their products have NO CHEMICALS - NO TOXINS - NO PETROLEUM - NO SYNTHETICS - NO PARABENS - NO PHTHALATES - NO BPA - and NO SULFATES!!!  WooHoo!!!

Jack & Lily Baby Shoes Review

As a mom, I'm always looking for quality items for my kids.  Shoes, in particular, are important to me.  You see, a cheap shirt may wear out quickly, but won't really do any harm.  Bad shoes, however, can actual cause your little one harm. Doctors say that young children who are learning to walk should actually go barefoot.  It helps their bodies grow right, etc.  Of course, we all know that you can't always go barefoot - especially if you're outside or in an unfamiliar setting - so shoes with soft, flexible soles are suggested.  Jack & Lily Shoes fit this description perfectly!

The wonderful folks at Jack & Lily were kind enough to send my impending arrival a couple of pairs of shoes to review!  I received their Original in Solid Cream in sizes 0-6 months and 6-12 months...



BG Birthing Gown Review

I remember when I gave birth to my first little blessing.  I wasn't really thrilled to be wearing that typical hospital gown that they make you wear.  Its ugly.  Its not super comfy.  And, if you want to get up to walk or go to the restroom, well, you are gonna flash the world!  (Those gowns don't really have great coverage - especially for a pregnant woman!)

I asked my OB if I could wear what I wanted this time.  She told me "yes and no."  The reason they want you to wear those hospital gowns is because they have buttons at the shoulders - in case you need or want to change your gown during labor.  That way they don't have to take your IV, etc. out for you to change your gown.  They also like them opened in the back so that you can easily get an epidural, etc. - if that's what you need or desire.

Thankfully, with this baby, I can have the best of both worlds!  I can wear a SUPER comfy gown of my own while still complying with the medical staff's wishes.  How?  With the BG Birthing Gown!

Witjuti Bamboo Clothing Review

OK, I am SOOO excited about this review!!!!  I've found some FABULOUS maternity/nursing clothes from a wonderful Australian company called Witjuti.  Bare with me a second and let me give you a little quote from their website:
"Witjuti Bamboo Clothing range was created after founder and designer, Banika Smee, was working at home with her new baby boy. After sleepless nights, and being woken up to delivery drivers knocking at the door at 10am to find she was still in her PJ’s and just got out of bed, Banika thought all she wanted was to be able to wear something that did not look like her PJ’s, and still had support and comfort that she needed. She wanted to be able to go straight to the supermarket, do a yoga class, or go for a walk without having to change into uncomfortable clothing, especially after having a caesarean and while breastfeeding!"

I know how she feels!  I think every woman who has had a baby knows that feeling!  I'm feeling it right now - and I'm just a few months pregnant!  But I want to be comfy and yet not look like I'm wearing pajamas all day.  Witjuti has solved that problem for me! 

Banika sent me 3 items to review.  The first item I received was this lovely Singlet Top in black...


"palirika" singlet top with support bra/nursing access

Well Baby Tummy Time Mat Review

As a mom, I love finding new an innovative products for my little one.  Now that I'm expecting my second blessing, I'm finding some awesome products that I wish I'd had with my first!  One of those products is the Well Baby Tummy Time Mat...


Tummy time is an integral part of an infant's development.  It helps build neck and upper body strength and encourage developmental milestones like rolling over and crawling.  Unfortunately, most tummy time mats don't seem to help with these developmental milestones.  Think about it, in order to learn how to crawl, etc., an infant needs a little bit of traction - something they WON'T get on a soft mat made of silky cloth.

The Well Baby Tummy Time Mat is different! This tummy time mat was invented by a pediatrician, Dr. Lisa Dana.  Dr. Dana took into account infant ergonomics, developmental stages, and even proper materials!

Lugz Allertons Review

I'm so excited to being doing another review for Lugz!  They are a fabulous shoe company!  About 3 months ago, they sent my husband a pair of their Drifter Lo Ballistic work boots to review.  Those shoes are great for work!  This time, they were kind enough to send a pair of Allertons for review...



These shoes are pretty cool!  They come in several versions of grey and black, so there's lots to choose from! 

Kivelli Baby Bathrobe

About a month and a half ago, I did a review of a precious little baby travel blanket.  I came from a company called Kivelli Baby.  I love that blanket!  Its soft, stylish, ADORABLE, and even has a little pocket to carry an extra pacifier or teether!  Such an inventive idea!

The folks at Kivelli Baby were kind enough to ask me to review another item for them - their Bathrobe Collection.  I received this sweet bathrobe to review...

 

Cheeky Britches Infant Outfit Review

Once again, I've found another FABULOUS children's clothing company!  And I'm not going to keep it to myself!  No, I'm going to share it with all of my wonderful readers - its an Australian company called Cheeky Britches. 


Their website states...
"Cheeky Britches is an Australian owned babies and children’s fashion label. At Cheeky Britches we’re all about creating original designs for baby and children’s wear from various cultures around the world without compromising quality.

You may remember a review I did about 3 months ago for a company called All-Ett.  All-Ett is a wonderful company that makes "the world's thinnest wallet."  And, their wallets are made in the USA!!!  WooHoo!!!  I loved the wallet I received from them, so I was THRILLED when they contacted me about doing another review!!!

This time, I'm reviewing an incredibly unique and fascinating wallet - the RFID Security Wallet!!!
