Citrus Lane February 2013 Boxes Review and 50% Off Your First Box!!!

Its that time again!!!  Time for another Citrus Lane review!!!  If you read my blog at all, you know how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE Citrus Lane!!!  They send a monthly box to your house based on your child's sex (you can choose a female, male or gender neutral box) and age (you can order boxes for newborns all the way up to 5 years old)!

We've been receiving 2 Citrus Lane boxes for several months lately - one for our toddler and one for our baby (due any day now).  My toddler LOVES opening her surprise box each month!  And I've LOVED receiving newborn boxes through my pregnancy!  Now I have a nice stash of bath products, feeding products, books, baby toys, etc. for when our newest addition arrives!!!

So without further ado, let's get to the boxes, shall we!  This first box was for our newborn...



Zoe Clothing Co. Review

As I often mention, I LOVE a company that's doing good!!!  And I've found a great one in Zoe Clothing Co.!  They are doing good in a couple of ways: 1.) They are helping spread God's word through their t-shirts and other Scripture-oriented products and 2.) They are helping raise money for some pretty awesome causes!

The awesome folks at Zoe Clothing Co. were kind enough to send me serveral items for review!  First I received several of their t-shirts.  The first one I received is this awesome "Love Your Neighbor" Women's t-shirt...



PonyUp Kentucky Review

I've mentioned it so many times before, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE a company that "does good."  What do I mean by that?  Well, a company that has a mission besides just making money - whether its giving to charity, training others to make a living, or teaching others some special skill - I just love a company that has a purpose!  That's why I was THRILLED when the folks at PonyUP Kentucky contacted me about doing a review of one of their wonderful purses!  I received this LOVELY purse for review...

Judy Bag Company Etsy Shop Review

With a new little one on the way, I love the idea that my 2 girls can share things!  We don't have to buy tons of clothes, blankets, etc.  But I don't want my new little one to have only hand-me-downs either.  I want both girls to have some things that are uniquely their own.  That's why I was so glad to find Judy Bag Company Etsy Shop!!!  I received a few personalized items to review for my new bundle of joy!  The first thing I received was this ADORABLE monogrammed diaper cover...

Oogaa Divided Plate Review

You may remember my previous review of the Oogaa Feeding Set and Placemat.  We LOVE LOVE LOVE Oogaa!!!  The bowl that came in the feeding set is one of my daughter's favorite bowls!  And its my favorite too!!! 

Well, the awesome folks at Oogaa have recently added to their product line!  And I was lucky enough to receive a couple of their new divided plates for review!!!






Crib Creations Etsy Shop Review and Promo Code!

Booginhead Squeez'Ems Review



You may remember my previous review of the Booginhead Splat Mat.  We love that product!  Its great for dining, crafts, etc!  Well, the awesome folks at Booginhead were kind enough to send me another product for review.  This time its their Squeez'Ems..



Episencial Winter Magic Kit and Cheeky Salve Review


You may remember my previous review of Episencial Skincare.  They make some WONDERFUL kids' bath and skincare products!!!  Why do I love Episencial so much?  Well, Episencial's entire line of skin care is safe for newborns, made with all natural ingredients, manufactured in the US, and made using solar power and recycled sustainable packaging!  How awesome is that!!!

The lovely folks at Episencial were kind enough to send me a couple of other items for review.  The first item I received was their Winter Magic Kit...

The Shower Planner Etsy Shop Review

I don't know about your house, but Valentine's Day is a BIG DEAL at our house! - Especially since we started having kids.  I mean, I LOVE my family, so any holiday where I can express that in a special way is an awesome holiday to me!  That's why I was thrilled to find the Cotton Coast Etsy Shop!  This amazing shop sent each of my little ones a Valentine's Chair Mailbox for review...



K&S Specialties Etsy Shop Review

I have such a hard time finding good towels for my toddler.  I could just use regular towels, but at her age, a hooded towel is still really helpful.  Unfortunately, most hooded towels are too small (made for babies, not toddlers) and very thin (which means not very absorbant).  Thankfully, I recently found K&S Specialties Etsy Shop!  They were kind enough to send me one of their hooded towels for review...



Apples And Nanas Etsy Shop Review

Once again, I have another great Etsy Shop to share with you today!  This time its Apples And Nanas Etsy Shop!  Apples And Nanas sells some adorable handmade bibs, burp cloths, and hooded towels, and they were kind enough to send me some items for review!  The first item I received was this ADORABLE hooded towel...

Smocked Threads By Cecil and Lou Toddler Easter Dress Review

OK.  I'll just say it.  There's nothing more precious than a toddler (or baby) in a smocked outfit!  Seriously!  Smocked clothing is beautiful, traditional - just lovely!  So I was thrilled when the folks at Smocked Threads by Cecil and Lou contacted me about a review!  They sent my sweet girl this LOVELY Easter dress for review...




John Boos Cutting Board Review


Those of you that know me know that I LOVE to cook.  To me, its a creative exercise.  Of course, if you're gonna cook a lot, you need a really good cutting board.  Those plastic ones just won't do.  Thankfully, there's a company that makes WONDERFUL wood cutting boards - John Boos!  The awesome folks at John Boos were kind enough to send me their RAD Maple Board for review...


This board is SERIOUSLY incredible!  Its made in the USA (which is always a plus to me) and is made of Hard Rock Maple.  Its reversible - which is awesome!  Also, it has a juice groove!  How awesome is that!  Slice up oranges, lemons, tomatoes, whatever you want, without worrying about juice spilling on the floor!  Awesome!!!

The one I received is HUGE!  Thankfully, however, John Boos sells all sorts of cutting boards in all sorts of sizes!  That means they really do have something for everyone!  I used this board today and, let me tell you, its AWESOME!  There's plenty of room to chop, dice, slice!!!



If you are a professional chef or a mom like me that loves to cook, John Boos has something for you!  Go check them out!!!  :)

Sooie Stitches Etsy Shop Review

I remember when we were expecting our first.  I got lots of lovely hooded baby towels.  They were great!  The hood is so handy and the size is perfect for babies.  There was only one problem.  Baby towels are notoriously thin.  I have no idea why, but they are!  And then, as my little baby grew into a toddler, another problem developed.  Those baby towels were no longer big enough, but I still wanted that hood!  Its so convenient for drying toddler hair!!!  What to do?  What to do?  I'll tell you!  Check out Sooie Stitches Etsy Shop!



Ella Alana Etsy Shop Review

I love baby things.  Seriously.  I think its an addiction.  But what is better than cute, fashionable, baby items!  Thankfully, I've found a shop that has TONS of them - Ella Alana Etsy Shop!!!  This shop has some seriously cute stuff - and they were kind enough to send me several items for review! 

The first thing I received was this AMAZING Boppy Breastfeeding Pillow cover...


Plum Pixel Etsy Shop Review

I love a company with a great message!  Plum Pixel Etsy Shop definitely fits that description!  They sell wonderful Bible passage prints and were kind enough to send me several for review!  I requested a couple of prints for my kids' bedrooms...


Woombie TimeIn Doll Review

I love a company that keeps coming up with a great idea!  And Woombie is DEFINITELY one of those companies!!!  First it was their awesome Baby Swaddles, then it was their incredible Toddler Eco Donut, and then their Lil Peanut Doll - that helps teach your toddler about taking care of a new baby.  Well, Woombie has done it again!  This time its the TimeIN Doll!!!

Mommy's Bliss Review

I have to say, I'm VERY interested in finding safe, natural products for my kids.  There's just too much "junk" out there these days.  Thankfully, I've found a great company with some great natural products - Mommy's Bliss!!!  Mommy's Bliss was started by Roshan Kaderali - a registered nurse, lactation consultant, doula and midwife.  ( I love when I find products that were invented by professionals that are also moms!  Its the best of both worlds!)

The awesome folks at Mommy's Bliss sent me their FULL LINE of products for review!  The first products I received were their Gripe Water products...



Architec Appetizer Maker Review


You may rember my previous reviews of Architec Housewares.  (You can find them HERE and HERE.)  I love Architec's products!  They are fun, beautiful and environmentally friendly!  And they've recently released a brand new product - The Appetizer Maker!!! 




This thing is pretty cool!  It all snaps together, so its easy to store and you won't lose any of the pieces!  It comes with a Main Body (the large part at the top of the picture), the Cut and Carry Base (the second item from the top, which lifts the stacks out of the Main Body), the Tamper (3rd from the top, which can be used to press down dry layers), and the Spreader/Serrated Knife (at the bottom of the picture, that can be used to spread soft cheeses, condiments, etc and also used to cut the stacks along the guide lines).
