Gazillion Bubbles Review


As most of you know I have a 2 year old little boy Zane Bug, and this kid like most others is obsessed with bubbles so every time I take him into town he wants a toy (most normal right) well instead of a Hot Wheels or other toy like that he wants a bottle of bubbles which is great for the budget but not so great for the parent (usually me) that has to set and blow hundreds of bubbles a day!! Well recently on Twitter I was introduced to Gazillion Bubbles which I had already know about since we bought their bubbles once or twice before because I think they are the best bubbles on the market in terms of actually blowing more than one little bubble at a time! So when asked to do a review on one of their products I had no other choice but to say OH YEAH!!!

Our Thoughts:


Zane Bug was sent the automatic Gazillion Bubble Machine (thank goodness) and he automatically had to open it and test it out!


Once I fought with the package and got the machine out of it’s box set up was a snap and that’s a good thing since my little bug what in a hurry to get to the “bubble blower” as he calls it! Once we had it all set up and turned on I was simply amazed at how many bubbles this machine put out it was wonderful and now my little Zane Bug was super happy and very occupied and I have a few minutes with out hearing “mama hurry up!” but eventually my quiet wore off because the bottle of bubbles that came with the machine was alas empty! Which it lasted a decent about of time seeing that not only was Zane Bug playing in the bubbles but my 17 year old sister (Yes, I said 17yr old) was sitting in the middle of the bubbles having just as much fun as Zane Bug! I admit that I played in it just a bit but just hearing the laughter of Zane Bug made it all so much better!





I have bought Zane Bug other automatic bubble blowers and I’ve not had any luck with them at all but this one we give a A+ and I recommend it to anyone who has a little one that loves bubbles, it will keep them occupied for hours!!! But I do want to give a warning you may want to keep some of the extra Gazillion Bubbles handy for when you run out because we did and Zane Bug wanted more bubbles and none on the bubbles we had at home worked as well!

They have many many more options available for bubble making so check out their WEBSITE and find something for your little bubble lover!

Fairytale Brownies Review and Giveaway Mother’s Day Gift Guide


I don’t know if you know by now but I’m a sweet-a-holic! I love sweets any and every one of them but I have a very huge weakness for brownies and when they are great brownies they just can’t be beat! So when I ran across Fairytale Brownies I knew I just had to try them and let my readers know about another yummy treat!

About Fairytale Brownies (Taken From Their Website):

Inspired by a treasured family recipe and a commitment to excellence, we created enchanting Fairytale Brownies. Our magical blend indulges your senses with fudgy chocolate goodness, taking you back to fond childhood memories.

Helping us spread this joy is our Brownie, a cheerful fairy of Celtic folklore who delights in performing good deeds. He lives in an enchanted forest tending to the exotic cacao bean trees from which our chocolate is crafted. All of this magic is what you'd expect from a luscious combination of pure ingredients - rich, dark Callebaut Belgian chocolate blended with pure creamery butter and farm fresh eggs. All-natural Fairytale Brownies are certified kosher and free of trans fats, hydrogenated oils, preservatives and artificial colors.

Pure chocolate enchantment is as close as your first bite!

Our Thoughts:

My family was kindly sent the Mother’s Day Dozen gift box that includes one each of all 12 Fairytale flavors, packed with care in our classic box and wrapped with a beautiful fuchsia Mother's Day gift band. Now with me being a brownie lover when the box arrived at the door my son and I were the only ones home so we hurried into the kitchen to find the scissors to get them open I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited to receive mail! The wait was well worth it because once we got it open and laid all the flavors out it was time to try our first brownie!!


I chose the pecan brownie because my husband and I both love pecans and I wanted to get to it before he did and Zane Bug chose the original! I’m have to admit for me it was love at first bite these things are delicious!! They are very warm and moist I would say due to riding in the UPS truck until 2:00pm but they were yummy never the less and Zane Bug really enjoyed his brownie as well:


When my hubby got home he had to wait until after dinner to get his and it was full of whining I thought Zane Bug was the 2 year old??? He really devoured his brownie after super and before I could snap a quick picture for the review he was already washing it down with milk! Husbands!!!

My whole family gives these brownies a huge thumb up and will defiantly keep them in mind for the next big family event because they are just too good to keep to our self!

Cowgirl Chocolates Review and Giveaway Mother’s Day Gift Guide


Are you looking for something unique and different for the chocolate lover on your gift list this Mother’s Day? I have found some awesome chocolates that will defiantly give you something new and different and these chocolates are from Cowgirl Chocolates! Cowgirl Chocolates offers and spicy gourmet chocolates for adventurous chocolate lovers
and packaged as unique tasty gifts for any and all occasions

About Cowgirl Chocolates (Taken From Their Website):

Head Cowgirl Marilyn Lysohir founded Cowgirl Chocolates in 1997. Her two favorite things in the world are art (she has a notable career as a ceramic sculptor) and chocolate. In fact her first job was working in a chocolate factory in Pennsylvania. Marilyn mingled some favorite memories with some new ideas to create an American original, Cowgirl Chocolates.

Cowgirl Chocolates has won a total of 16 product awards and 2 packaging awards and is located in Moscow, Idaho USA. It has also been featured on the Food Network on “Unwrapped” and “Extreme Cuisine” and in the New York Times and Toronto Star among others.

Our Thoughts:

My family was kindly sent a sample box of Cowgirl Chocolates for review and I must say these babies come wrapped in a beautiful package once out of the shipping package! I wish I would have taken the time to get the package cover before I ripped it off to get a taste of these delicious chocolates! I was quite surprised at first by the taste I knew they were supposed to be spicy chocolates but with the first bite or two I didn’t feel nor taste the spice but after popping the rest of the truffle in my mouth and really taking the time to chew it good well…lets just say the spice is there and it caught me a little off guard! But I do love these chocolates and so does my hubby who was raised on a farm and calls him self a Cowboy I don’t consider myself a Cowgirl by no means I’m a Rock Diva but I will for sure be keeping these chocolates around for us both and I’m thinking about sending some to a few of my good ol’ country friends that I know will love these treats!


It didn’t take long for all the truffles to be devoured after they arrived I’d say they were gone in about 2 days (but it wasn’t just me eating them) we had my mom and dad over for dinner in our new house the day after we got the truffles and my dad certainly helped devour them he said “These are the best chocolates I’ve ever put in my mouth!!!”

I really recommend these chocolates as a gift for the chocolate lover on your list this year because they are so unique and different that I just know anyone who receives these chocolates are going to be in love!

Misikko Flat Iron Review and Giveaway Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2010

I have a hard time a hard time finding flat irons and curling irons that actually work on my hair I don’t know if it’s the damage from over processing and discoloration that seems to always take place about every 6 weeks but I just can’t get a decent flat iron or curling iron at Wal-Mart but I have found my solution with the Misikko Hana Professional Flat Iron 1’’!!

Misikko has it all from flat irons, hair dryers, curling irons, hair care, makeup and skin care! When I first visited the Miskko website I was simply amazed at their selection of products and Brand Names. I have to say you will not have a problem finding your perfect flat iron or any other hair care products they have everything! Check out some of their sections:
Professional Flat Iron
Chi Flat Iron
Babyliss Flat Iron
Best Flat Irons

My Thoughts:

I was sent the Hana Professional Flat Iron 1" pink edition for review! The package arrived very very quickly and when I opened the package it was presented very nicely:





The flat iron came with an iron mat, storage pouch, heat proof pouch, a sample of Hana ShineShield Thermal Protectant and a nail file pouch!

The iron features:
Adjustable Heat- 140-450F
Materials- Ceramic, Tourmaline
Damp to Dry- Safe Damp Styling
Floating Plates- Self Adjust to Hair Texture
Warranty- 2 yr

I was really excited to get to test this iron out but since I had already straightened my hair earlier in the day I decided to wait until morning. So that night I went to bed with my hair still damp (which I never do due to the mess my hair in in the mornings) but I wanted to really test the iron. I am really amazed and pleased at how my hair turned out! It was extra smooth no bumps like I normally still have when I sleep with damp hair and the shine was amazing. I didn’t even have to use the high heat setting I just used about halfway and it was perfect I even used the iron to add messy curls to my hair when my husband and I had a date night and he really loved it!!

Buy It:
You can get your very own Hana Professional Flat Iron 1" pink edition online for only $119.99 that’s a 41% savings and includes the options!!!

It’s formulated with pro-vitamin A (carotenoids), Buriti moisturizes dyed and discolored hair while providing a natural SPF to protect the hair from further damage from the sun. The first thing I noticed about this product was the very pleasant aroma I mean this stuff smells wonderful it’s like the fragrance you would expect from the super expensive brands that you buy in a salon! I’ve been using this cream on my hair now for a few weeks and I love it at first I was using it as a hair mask every other day and I noticed a dramatic change in my hair with lots more shine and a lot less brakeage after only a few uses!!! This is a product that I’m not going to run out of I’m going to make sure this stays in my shampoo cabinet and I recommend this to anyone out there that has damaged and discolored hair this stuff works miracles!!

Our Thoughts:


So when I was contacted by Pillow Pets to do a review and giveaway with their Spring/Easter Pillow Pets I jumped at the chance I knew Zane would love to have one! I chose Puffy Duck as an addition to his Easter basket this year and he loved it!!


I was really amazed at how soft and cuddly the pillow actually was everything they claim that theses Pillow Pets are they are telling the absolute truth!! Zane has to have his Puffy Duck every afternoon at nap time and it seems to sleep really good so I’m gonna have to still it one naptime for myself!!! I have put a couple of Pillow Pets on my birthday shopping list for my nephews I think they would both love to have one of the incredible soft companions.

I am confident that Pillow Pets would be a huge hit as a birthday or Christmas gift but if you don’t want to wait for a reason to give one they would make a wonderful just because surprise as well! And they have a huge selection so I’m sure you will be able to find the perfect pet!!!

Buy It:

Is it really Easter already?

I don't know about all of you but for me it seems this year is flown by already! I guess I've just been so busy that I haven't had time to really slow down and enjoy 2010! My little man is growing up and sometimes I just have to stop and think where did the first two years go??? But now with spring upon us here in Arkansas (and yes the storms are coming) I'm making a promise to myself to spend more time enjoying the little things in life like my son, the weather and all our famiy trips to the zoo and park! And for some reason I keep thinking that The chicken reports the scattering stair throughout our composite. Who knows I'm nuts like that sometime! I hope you all get out and enjoy the wonderful spring weather where ever you may reside and be on the look out for a super fun postcard exchange comming soon with a fun little kick to it!

Peace and Love,
Stephanie
