Beibi Shoes Review and Giveaway


First off I want to thank Wee Squeak Beibi Shoes for letting me host this awesome review and giveaway here on my blog in celebration of Zane’s 2nd Birthday!!!

Beibi shoes offers shoppers soft, durable shoes designed for baby's comfort. I was sent the Crawford Brown Baby Shoes in size 18-24months for review! I absolutely love these little shoes they are so darn cute and they go with just about everything in Zane’s closet! When the shoes first arrived Zane was so excited to put them on I had to take off the other shoes he was wearing and put these on. Apparently they are some of the most comfortable shoes this boy has because it took me until 8:00 that night to get them off of his feet and you have to understand this boy doest’t really like to wear shoes or socks so I was amazed that he actually wore these shoes that long. Every time we start out of the house he makes sure these are the shoes we put on him! They are very durable as well he has wore them no-stop and they still don’t show the wear and tear that other brands I have tried after just a few wears. I have recommended these shoes to all of my friends and family with small children and I also recommend them to you if you have a small child in your life I bet they would love these shoes!! Mine sure does! I had him model his new shoes for me when we first got them!!! Can’t you see how excited he is!!!

Here are the shoes we got for review:





Here he is showing off his new pair of shoes!



One of the first things he had to do was make sure he could run around good in them and take a few stomps!



And if you have a little girl just look at these adorable Hope Light Pink Baby Shoe and this is just a very small sample of what you are going to find available on their website:

Peeled Snacks Review and Giveaway




First off I want to thank Peeled Snacks for letting me host this awesome review and giveaway here on my blog.

At Peeled Snacks, we believe snacking should be a satisfying part of life. We enjoy delicious, wholesome foods, and know that when we eat healthy, tasty snacks, we energize our minds and bodies.

Ingredients matter! We keep our snacks as close to natural as possible by using high quality ingredients. When you bite into a juicy piece of fruit or a crunchy nut, you'll wonder why anyone would want to add sugar or fat. We've had enough of seeing high fructose corn syrup and other artificial fillers in the foods we buy. Many companies try to save money by using less natural ingredients and replacing them with sugars and fats. At Peeled Snacks, however, using premium ingredients is NOT something on which we're willing to compromise.

Creativity counts! We knew we wanted to create a snack of dried fruit and nuts, but anyone who's had a typical peanut and raisin trail mix knows that they don’t exactly burst with flavor. When you mix fruit with nuts, the nuts get soggy and the fruit dries out. We pack the fruit and nuts separately, ensuring that the nuts stay crunchy and the fruit stays moist. Other fruit and nut mixes try to cheat by adding sweeteners or vegetable oil, but Peeled Snacks are naturally sweet and flavorful. Our stay-fresh pack is our creative solution to seal in freshness without these additives. So you get a great tasty treat that's naturally good for you. See our four fruit & nut mixes.

Organic goodness! Our newest line of snacks are organic, single-serving, single-flavor varieties, called Picks. There are six organic flavors: go-Mango-man-go, pine-4-Pineapple, Banan-a-peel, Apple-2-the-core, Apricot-a-lot and Cashew-later. There are also two all-natural varieties: Cherry-go-round and Almond-daze. All Picks have nothing added: no sugar or oil or preservatives of any kind. Check out the Picks.

Here is their story:
Peeled Snacks founder, Noha Waibsnaider, launched Peeled Snacks in 2004 when she noticed something missing from the world of snack food. She craved a snack that tasted good while making you feel good about snacking. In starting Peeled Snacks, she invented the snack that she craved, debuting with three premium mixes of fruits & nuts, Bing Bing Cherry, Shock-olate and FigSated.
Noha, who received an MBA from Columbia Business School in 2002, was one of the co-founders of the Global Social Venture Competition (GSVC), a $1.5MM initiative promoting businesses with a positive social and environmental impact, and was an officer for the Social Enterprise Club - a Net Impact Chapter dedicated to helping a new generation of entrepreneurs make a positive social impact while making a profit.
After graduation, Noha worked at consumer-packaged-goods giant Unilever. She managed alternative channels for Ragu Pasta Sauce and helped develop new products under the internationally known Lipton Tea brand. Before joining the consumer packaged goods industry, Noha worked in the nonprofit sector, publishing, and marketing communications. She graduated magna cum laude from American University in Washington D.C. with a BA in Spanish and Latin American Studies.
Noha frequently speaks in business school classes and panels on social entrepreneurship. She has been a judge and mentor for the GSVC, and is an active member of Net Impact, 85 Broads, Ladies Who Launch, Women Entrepreneur Network, NY Foodie Companies Group, and the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill. Noha, a consummate reader, speaks 3 languages fluently and enjoys traveling, yoga, cooking, and exploring farmers markets for yummy foods.


My thoughts:
Peeled snacks kindly sent me a variety of snack to try out: Cherry-go-Round, Banan-a-peel, pine-4-Pineapple, Apple-2-the-core, and Apricot-a-lot! I must say I loved these snacks they were all so tasty even my 22 month old son loved the Cherry-go-Round and Banan-a-peel! I think these are wonderful mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks that are so much healthier than the typical snacks I usually grab around snack time. I would defiantly recommend these to anyone looking for a unique, natural, healthy snack!!



Organic Fruit Picks Variety Pack
5 organic fruit Picks

My thoughts:

I was kindly sent the I Dig™ Excavation Adventures T-Rex Skeleton Excavation Adventure for review. And first off I must say that my 22 month old son was stoked just by looking at the box he was running around the house saying dinosaurs and for him that is a huge word!! The I Dig Dinosaurs T-Rex Skelton Excavation Adventure is recommended for ages 6+ but with the help of his grandpa Zane had a blast digging this Tyrannosaurus out of the glacial rock! The kit includes the bones encased in glacial rock, Paleontologist Field Guide, steel digging tools, finishing paints with brush and safety glasses. Instead of just telling you how much fun we had being Paleontologist I’ll also show you!!!!





Here is my little Paleontologist setting up and getting ready for the big dig! He was so excited and it really did surprise me with him only being 22 months old so I’m hoping that he is going to enjoy science like I do.



So moving on here he is chipping away at the rock with the digging tools! If I were to make a change with this kit I would include one of those small brushes to brush away the loose rocks and “dirt” to make it that much more realistic, but I’m telling you this kit is great!!! But just take my advice don’t do this on carpet we did and well it was a bit messy but very easy to clean up!



Here he has found his first bone and he is amazed and not quite sure what to do now! He wanted to just jerk it up but he had to keep on digging so I think this was great to test his patience and to my surprise he was very patient and kept on digging until he uncovered all the bones!








Then we snapped the bones together and now we have our T-Rex! Very easy assembly and Zane loved it!




All in all with the help of grandpa and is aunt KK it took almost an hour to uncover and dislodge the bones out of the rock. So we defiantly give this product 2 thumbs way up and say this is an amazing product and if you have a little budding scientist you should defiantly check out these kits! I am going to be on the look out for the other kits in the I Dig Dinosaurs collection to complete Zane new found collection!

You can purchase this kit and others on the website or at a store near you:

Plush Puffs Review and Giveaway



First off I want to thank Plush Puffs for letting me host this awesome review and giveaway here on my blog.

Plush Puffs (http://www.plushpuffs.com/) offers the highest quality, all natural, intensely flavored marshmallows with no high fructose corn syrup and they are naturally low in fat and gluten free. They come in 7 mouth watering flavors: Vanilla Bean, Caramel Swirl, Chocolate Chipetta, Sydney’s Cinnamon, Peppi-Mint, Simply S’mores and Luscious Lemony Meringue! You can get these in either packs of 16-18 1" cube marshmallows, 1lb bulk bag or you can get them in one gigantic marshmallow that is almost 2lbs.

Here is the Plush Puffs story:

Once upon a time (Halloween time that is) a young boy asked “hey Mom, let’s make pumpkin marshmallows today”. Mom said, “hmmm, that sounds interesting, let’s give it a go!”. Well, that Mom called another Mom (who both coincidentally already worked as chefs together) and they went to it. After many painstaking hours in the test kitchen and many “almost batches”, Plush Puffs were born! Much to our delight, a whole bunch of other flavors turned out beautifully, and finally a special flavor we added last fall Pumpkin Praline! From the first hit, Toasted Coconut to the Chocolate Chipetta, they have all been a labor of love. In fact, it is still hard to resist more than one taste test when the batches are being made.

What Makes Plush Puffs So Special:
We’re devoted to the artisan marshmallow product. And because of this, we have had to be quite creative about the process of getting these made right. Downright innovative sometimes. But nobody cares about the process behind the scenes, because what makes our marshmallows so special is how they taste. Even after all these years of making marshmallows, we still love to eat Plush Puffs ourselves and share them with our friends and family because we think they just taste so darn good. We've tried all the other marshmallows out there - and there are some good ones. But we consistently come away feeling confident that ours are best gourmet marshmallow product. available. We think you'll agree.


I was lucky enough to get to try out 3 of their 7 flavors and I’m so amazed at the lushness of these marshmallows!! I received the Simply S’Mores, Peppi-Mint and the Caramel Swirl marshmallows and I am happy to say that I loved them all and the whole family agreed that they were some of the most unique desserts that we have every had. I tried them all out in the last week with my nightly hot chocolate by the fire and they were a very nice touch to make it a wonderful decadent winter treat. My husband isn’t much of a sweets eater but he has completely clamed the S’mores and almost has the entire package gone. My son was a huge fan of the S’mores as well but I think he liked the Caramel Swirl the best out of all 3 choices. I myself love anything peppermint so of course I put a clam on the Peppi-Mint marshmallow! I think these would make a wonderful addition to your holiday party this year as a fun treat for your guest as well as I think it would make a wonderful addition to any stocking you are stuffing this year. The first thing I thought about when I tried my first Peppi-Mint marshmallow was WOW my little sister (who is away in collage) needs to get a package of these from home for Christmas this year! I think I may send her one of Plush Puffs gift baskets they have available on their website. You can see it HERE (http://www.plushpuffs.com/ordering?type=gifts&rid=HBOXXFCMDSLGNVVWJRGF) there is endless possibilities for these wonderfully unique marshmallows. I would like to see them develop a strawberry cheesecake flavor to add to their already awesome collection of flavors.
I want to share a few of the wonderful flavors available:


Vanilla Bean Plush Puffs are fluffy and soft and made with real vanilla beans! The "Cadillac Marshmallow" is the classic for tasting and toasting, and is wonderful when melted into a coffee or hot chocolate. And like all Plush Puffs, they're equally yummy right out of the package.


No need to race around looking for the grahams and chocolate anymore! We've put it all together for you. We begin with our Vanilla Bean marshmallow and then mix in all-natural graham pieces, dust the whole thing with light cocoa powder and top it with chocolate chips. Make sure to buy some to share, because Smores are so much more fun when everyone makes a gooey delicious marshmallow mess!




Really, there is no comparison when it comes to the meeting of ecstasy and subtle indulgence – and this marshmallow will bring you there. We found this boutique, small-batch caramel a few years ago, and were excited to pair it with our marshmallows. When our Caramel Swirl melts in your mouth you get a small peek into the world of unfettered bliss. Now, roast it or dip it into a delicious dark chocolate fondue and the description of this experience edges on one of obscenity, which we do not endorse here at Plush Puffs, so we’ll leave that one to you. And like all Plush Puffs, they’re equally yummy right out of the package.

You can purchase all the wonderful flavors and a few more on the website

Ann would like to offer one of my very, very lucky readers six of their retail packages!!!

Kim’s Cottage Art Review and Giveaway


First off I want to thank Kim for letting me host this awesome review and giveaway here on my blog.

Kim’s Cottage Art (http://www.etsy.com/shop/KimsCottageArt) offers beautiful original paintings as well as prints and a few handmade items. I was immediately drawn to Kim’s work by her beautiful winter prints. I think any of these wonderful prints or original paintings would look beautiful with any of your seasonal décor. Kim is also offering free shipping on all orders so be sure to get a special gift for yourself or someone special this holiday season. I would like to share a few of my favorite pieces of work from Kim’s shop.


I love this original, one of a kind, hand painted folk art painting. "Snowy Hills" is painted with acrylic paint on a stretched canvas and is sealed with an acrylic varnish.
