Power Perch Review!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by Power Perch for the review free of charge.****

Every single home has some kind of electronic that has to be charged at one point during the day, whether it is a phone or a tablet you don't want to just lay it on the floor in case someone steps on it but if there isn't a shelf or something near to set it on what are you to do? Power Perch is the answer!



I think this little shelf is a pretty neat idea that can help keep cords from getting tangled and trampled on. We have a spot in our living room where there is typically a tablet and phone charging at once but it is in a spot where we don't have a table so everything is just sitting on the floor. This Power Perch is nice because I can set the tablet or phone on top and have the cords running through the small hole you see above to help keep the cords from getting tangled and it will prevent anyone from tripping on the cords. Power Perch is sold in single packs, twin packs,triple packs and four packs plus they offer two different sizes. You can purchase them directly from their website or you can buy them on Amazon. Installing this took about two minutes and was quite simple.

Sleeping Baby Giveaway & Review!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by Sleeping Baby for the review & giveaway free of charge.****

I enjoy being comfortable while I am sleeping, if I am too hot during the summer or too cold during the winter it is difficult to fall asleep and I know it is the same way for my kids. I enjoy looking for sleep ware that helps keep them comfortable to give them a good nights sleep. A company called Sleeping Baby sells an assortment of fun and functional onesies and pajamas for infants, babies and toddlers. For a recent review I was sent a Little Monster Flying Squirrel Pajama set in a 4T/5T. They are made from a stretchy and breathable fabric that is perfect for kids to help keep their body temperature regulated.





My son is just outside of the 5T size range but I figured I would try these out anyways and if they didn't fit my godson is much younger than my son. When they arrived I was a little shocked at how big they were and knew right away they would in fact fit my son, they were tall enough I laughed with my fiance that I could probably wear them.The design of the pajamas are unique, they have extra material under the arms and along the sides towards the legs. If you were to stand with your arms and legs spread out it would give you the appearance of being a flying squirrel or sugar glider. The wrists and ankles of these are tighter to the body to give them a perfect fit feeling while the rest is a bit loose which gives you a good nights sleep. One of my favorite parts of this PJ set is that the neck area has extra material for the zipper to tuck into so the zipper doesn't rub on your childs neck or cause irritation. They are zippered PJ's and do not have a back flap for the bathroom so your child will need to pull them mostly off before being able to use the bathroom. Each pair of flying squirrel Pj's sells for $36.95 each and come in an assortment of designs for both boys and girls. They also sell nap mats and other kid friendly products.



Prize Alert:
One lucky winner is going to receive their own pair of Flying Squirrel PJs for either a boy or a girl.

This is open to US Residents only! Please remember if you DO NOT leave a comment on this blog post as your mandatory entry into the giveaway then all of your entries will be void.

Luv & Emma's Dry Pets Review & Giveaway!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by Luv & Emma for the review & giveaway free of charge.****

Ferrets can be pretty messy and our male Starlord seems to be a dirt magnet so we give them baths every few days, since they are pretty small and their fur can hold a lot of water we like to make sure they are completely dry when they get out of the tub. When you are trying to wrangle to ferrets into towels it can be a little bit of a pain without any help but the new towel we received from Luv & Emma's helps make things a bit easier because their pet towels have a hole in them so you can hang it on a door knob to make reaching them easier. I have a closet right next to where the bath tub is so it is nice to have this towel hanging right where I can reach it and still keep an eye on the ferrets.





This pet towel comes in two sizes, the Luv & Emma's Dry Pets which is 21"x17" and the Luv & Emma's Dry Pets Plus which is 36"x26". The larger size has a door handle hole on each side so that you can double it up and not have the towel dragging on the floor. The handle hole makes this easy to use in the bathroom or to keep next to your backdoor so you can dry your pets off as they are coming into the house. They use an absorbent microfiber fabric to create their towels and it really does help dry the ferrets off faster than the regular bath towel we were using before and the ferrets seem more comfortable in this towel, it is the perfect size to wrap them up into a little bundle to dry them off with. The towel is machine washable which will make it easy to clean and dry for reusing again. The original cost $12.95 + Shipping and the plus is $15.95 + shipping. This product is great for dogs, ferrets, etc.

Prize Alert:
One lucky reader is going to win their own Luv & Emma's Dry Pets 21"x17" towel.

This is open to US Residents only! Please remember if you DO NOT leave a comment on this blog post as your mandatory entry into the giveaway then all of your entries will be void.

Chewy.com Review!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by Chewy.com for the review free of charge.****


Our pets are just as spoiled as our kids so anytime we get the chance to review pet products it is hard to say no, each month I get a chance to select an item or two from a list of products from Chewy.com to review with my pets and they love it when the box arrives. This month I received two products, one will be featured on this post and the other will be posted in a few days. The first product up is the Brown's Tropical Carnival Play Barn with Hay Small Animals Hideout 8oz.



 

This animal hideout is precious and is sure to make you smile when you see your small 
critter playing in it. This is great for rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, hamsters and gerbils. I tested this product out with my two ferrets, it will be an occasional treat for them because they love diving and hiding under blankets, etc so I knew they would love this as well, I did shake out a lot of the fine loose pieces from the box before letting them play in it. When you think 8oz it doesn't seem like it is a lot of material but since hay is pretty light this little barn was jam packed! It was hard for them to get into at first so I pulled all of the hay out and placed it inside of a box for them to play in and put the barn to the side for them to play in as well, they had a blast playing in both boxes.Can you spot the ferret in the hay above?

The Brown's Tropical Carnival Play Barn with Hay Small Animals Hideout sells for $7.52 on Chewy.com and not only is the hay fun for your small critters to hide or play in but the barn itself is printed with non-toxic vegetable inks so it is alright if your little guy/gal wants to chew on the barn.

Balmshot Giveaway & Review!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by Balmshot for the review & giveaway free of charge.****

The Arizona sun and heat during the summer can do quite a number on your skin especially the delicate skin on your face and lips. Not only is it important to wear sunblock to protect your skin but carrying lip balm is also a great way to protect your lips not just from the sun but from the wind and dryness in general. Until recently I had never heard of the company Balmshot but I am glad I came across them because I am really enjoying their lip balm. Balmshot was created after the owner Wayne S. Forrey learned he had lip cancer due to his outdoor lifestyle and frequent sunburned lips. After he went through his lip construction surgery which was a success he wanted to help keep his lips moisturized and protected but he wasn't very happy with the lip balm selection that was out there because the caps and twist base would move in his pocket causing the lip balm to get smashed up in the cap. He set out to design a lip balm container that was functional which is when Balmshot was created.





They currently sell six products in total two of which are the same scent but they offer different packaging. I received a zippered ditty bag for review along with one of each of their products, which includes the Classic lip balm, Pure Pink lip balm which is vanilla mint scented and Pink camo which is the same scent but it has a camo product packaging vs all pink, a Cool mint lip balm, a organic pomegranate lip balm and their Mintyshot breath spray. The lip balm I decided to claim as my own is the pure pink the vanilla mint intrigued me and I love it, it has actually replaced the mint balm I had been using prior. One of the first things I noticed aside from the trendy packaging is that the balm itself is a little wider than regular lip balm tubes so you are able to get your entire lip in one swoop instead of having to go back a second time to make sure your whole bottom lip is covered. The formula they use is silky smooth and smells fantastic even my four year old commented on how much he liked the smell.


The tube itself is fantastic it looks just like a 20g shotgun shell. The cap fits securely onto the tube and it won't pop open in your pocket or purse, even though it is ribbed it doesn't catch on anything which is nice and makes it to where you actually have to hold onto it firmly to pop the cap off. The metal twist base is also nice, it is smooth and stays in place until you are ready to twist your lip balm up further. The formula has SPF 15 which helps protect your lips from windburn and sunburn, the way they created the formula leaves your lips feeling smooth and moisturized without giving you a greasy or slimy feeling. Proceeds from the sale of every Pure Pink and Pink Camo BALMSHOT product are donated quarterly to the Mountain States Tumor Institute to help uninsured women pay for mammograms and breast cancer screenings.

Prize Alert:
One lucky ready is going to win a Six pack of Balmshot products and a zippered ditty bag just like I received.

GoSports Soccer Ball Review!

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by GoSports for the review free of charge.****


My kids love going to the park so we go as often as the weather allows but it is always the same thing, we go the kids play on the play set for a bit then when they are board we go home. So we've been thinking of other things to do with them at the park and the kids decided it would be fun to be able to kick a soccer ball around which is where GoSports came into play. They sell a wide assortment of sports and outdoor activity sets so we were excited they agreed to a review.



I was sent a six piece size 4 soccer ball set that came with a mesh carrying/storage bag and a ball pump. The soccer balls were really easy to pump up, my four year old was able to fill most of them by himself however the pump gave out and broke apart on the fifth ball but thankfully I had a backup pump so it wasn't that big of an issue.The soccer balls seem like they are made to be pretty sturdy and will be able to take quite the beating, we've tested these out in the yard a bit but haven't actually been able to take them out yet so the kids are excited to go out and put them to the real test. Being a size four they are the perfect size for not only the kids but for my fiance and I as well. The white of the material they used seems to stain easily so I am not counting on these staying the nice white color for long but that is a good thing because it means they've been put to use. You can find a selection of products sold by Gosports on Amazon including sports equipment and lawn games like their giant dice set you can use for backyard lawn games. The six piece soccer ball set sells for $39.99 which comes out to about $6.67 per ball.

What is your favorite outdoor activity?
