Diaper Bag Review


I received this item for free or at a discount for my honest review. This diaper bag will be getting a lot of use in the next months. I will post an update later on how well it holds up. So far, though, loving it!

Diaper Bag Review http://fave.co/2lhnMX0

This diaper bag came with another small bag that one could use for a purse or to keep the smaller items, such as diaper rash cream, from getting lost in the larger bag. This bag has several pockets that will be very handy for holding everything you will need for baby. There is also a bottle size bag for holding the bottle so it doesn"t leak all over the inside of the bag. It feels like it could be insulated, but I"m not completely sure on that one. There is a changing pad inside this bag as well. Of course every mother knows how handy these are in a pinch.

So far, I love this bag. I will do an update later to let you know if it holds up well. My grandbaby will be here next month so it will be getting a lot of use after that. I know that a few of the bags I had when my littles were younger really didn"t hold up well, but I loved how they looked. These are my first impressions of this bag thus far. I"ll let ya know how it works out in a few months.

Baby Clothes and Chalk Board Labels

*This post contains affiliate links meaning that if you make a purchase I will receive a small commission at no cost to you.

So, the strangest thing happened to me the other day. I got two packages in the mail (baby clothes and chalk board labels), that I have no idea where they came from or why. The only thing I can figure is that they wanted a review on the items, however, they are not through any of the services I do reviews for. So, I"m going to do the reviews on these items and if you sent them to me, please let me know so I can credit them properly.

Baby Clothes


This outfit that was sent to me is the cutest thing I have seen a long while. I can"t wait for my grand baby to get here. She is going to look awesome in this. The outfit is from the Aikobaby brand. I was able to find this outfit Here on Amazon.

Baby Clothes http://amzn.to/2kXrgyoBaby Clothes http://amzn.to/2kXrgyoBaby Clothes http://amzn.to/2kXrgyo

Is that not the most adorable outfit? It"s made of 96% cotton and 4% Spandex. It"s a little bit stretchy, but not to the point of being able to fit a 3 yr. old. I love the polka dots on the top and bottoms of this outfit. The dog on the shirt is adorable and I like that it adds a pop of color being pink. The bunnies  on the legs are cute too and also provide a little color as one has a blue bow and the other has pink bow. I can"t wait to see my grandbaby in this.

Chalk Board Labels


I use chalk board labels all the time and on everything! So there is no doubt that I will use these often. The marker is nice and it works well too. I was able to find this set Here on Amazon as well.

Chalk Board Labels http://amzn.to/2kXrQfDChalk Board Labels http://amzn.to/2kXrQfD

These are Kitchen Supreme labels and are supposed to be made of the highest quality vinyl. I have never used anything from Kitchen Supreme before, but so far I really do like these. The marker writes well and it drys fairly quickly. It"s easy to use (I mean how hard is it to use a marker right?). The wipe off easily with a damp rag. So far, like I said they are working great.

So that"s it! Again if you are the person(s) who sent these to me, please reach out to me so that I can properly credit you for these items. Any Thank you for sending them to me.

Have a great day!

Johanna"s Jewelry Review - Necklace, Girl


Is this not the cutest necklace? I got this necklace from Johanna"s Jewelry for review. I adore it, I actually got this for my daughter because she is having a little girl in March.

Johanna

The necklace is in the shape of a little girl. The chain is a little different than most I have seen, but so far my daughter loves it. The charm is 18 caret gold and absolutely beautiful. Check out the video for a better look at the chain.

I Got My Pig! - New Animals on the Homestead

What a week! We finally got the pig I"ve been talking about for months. As a surprise, I got two goats with the pig. So the homestead is really growing now. I just don"t think the chickens enjoy having the goats around too much as they keep eating their food.

Bacon - Pig

 

Kira kept asking what we were going to name him. She wanted something like Porky Pig. At first I told her we weren"t going to name him because he was going to be food but she insisted. So I would like you to meet Bacon! I just hope she doesn"t get too attached to him in the 6 or so months that he will be here. I have to say, I didn"t think that pigs got lonely, but every time I go out to the animals, he starts making a ruckus, like come see me! It"s quite cute.

The goats are pets though. No eating them.

Midnight - Pig

 

This is Midnight. and the one below is Star. Again Kira named them.

Star - Pig

 

They are both male. So, if I get a few females I could start raising goats too! Oh, I bet my hubby would love that one!  I almost forgot, we also got some new baby chicks. I will have to get pics of them to post soon. The one"s I hatched in the incubator are growing fast and will be introduced to the flock in the next couple months I think.

So that"s what"s been going on around here. What have you been up to? Leave a comment and let me know. I do read every one and try to respond back as well.

Have a great day!

Pedi Roller Refill Review


The Pedi-Roller refill comes in a pack of 5. They are supposed to fit the Pedi Roller callus remover and work to make your feet soft.

Pedi Roller Refill http://amzn.to/2li4X7H

These pedi roller refills are supposed to fit into the Pedi-Roller callus remover. I didn"t realize at the time that this review was only for the refill pack. I don"t own the item so I can"t tell you how well they fit in the gadget, but I can tell you that just by touch, it appears that they would work really well to remove dead skin and callus" from your feet. I guess now I will have to by the roller so that I can actually use them...lol.

Cargo Management System Review


The cargo management system has several different connectors for different cargo needs. The bungee cords came in handy right away. The rest will be used between the vehicles.

Cargo Management System http://amzn.to/2kXDNCE

This system comes with 4 bungee tie-down cords with grommets, 4 tie-down metal anchors for hooks, 4 round plastic anchors for bungee cords, and 4 plastic hooks. Each of these items will be used for a different reason. The metal anchors will be used in hubby"s truck and the bungee tie-down cords are holding the tarp over the pig pen for shade. These are good quality items that should last for a while and will help us to be able to tie-down any load we may need to.

Wireless Earbuds Review


This review is on Deific Designs Wireless Earbuds. They should pair with just about any Bluetooth enabled device. These earbuds are also waterproof.

Wireless Earbuds Review http://amzn.to/2l8UFsg

My daughter snagged these as soon as I got them. Deific Designs wanted each blogger who got them to put them in water to show that they are waterproof. I would have loved to do this, but my daughter didn"t want to take the chance. She loves them. They are so easy to use: pair them with your bluetooth device and turn them on. It"s really that simple!

So, if you get a pair of these, try the waterproof test and let me know if it works. But these earbuds are great. You can even answer your phone with them if you have it paired to your phone.

Quit Tea Review


Quit tea is a smoking cessation product that works by replacing the bad habit of smoking with a better habit of drinking tea.

Quit Tea http://amzn.to/2kUSoPA

So, the way this tea is supposed to work is by replacing the habit of smoking with the habit of drinking tea. This is great in theory. I have to say that I have been having a very difficult time with trying to quit. I have managed to cut down, but I still smoke. The way this product works is, every time you crave a cigarette you are supposed to make a cup of tea instead.

The process of making and drinking the tea is supposed to help get your mind off the craving. I love the tea. It has an almost wild taste to it. However, it has not helped me with the cravings as of yet. I will keep trying though. I will do this, it"s just not as easy as I thought it would be.

In The Shadow of Denali By Tracie Peterson and Kimberley Woodhouse

In The Shadow of Denali takes place in Alaska, 1923, when it really was a wild country. A man is on his way to a new job in search of answers. The problem is, he may not like the answers he gets.

*This post may contain affiliate links*




[caption id="attachment_4984" align="aligncenter" width="224"]In The Shadow of Denali http://amzn.to/2lw7HkT Amazon Photo Credit[/caption]

This book is great! It starts off in 1917 when a man takes two others to the top of Denali. Only two of the three men come back.

The book then turns to 1923 and the son of the man who didn"t make it back is trying to find answers to his father"s death. His father was an experienced climber and should have made it back alive. However, his father"s friend and business partner, (the other man who went on the climb in 1917) has told everyone that the man responsible for the death of Allen"s father is still walking free in Alaska. Allen wants to find out why and what happened.

Allen faces many challenges in finding the answers he seeks and almost dies himself in trying to get those answers.

My Thoughts on the Book


I don"t know a lot about Alaska, especially at the time the book was written, but once I started reading this book, I could not put it down. You can get this book Here on Amazon or click the link below (It"s the picture of the book below the signature).

If you like action/adventure type books, you will love this one. If you read it let me know. I would love to know what you think about it. Personally I couldn"t put it down.

Have a great day!

Bike Light


This bike light is very bright. The clip holds strong too. This would be great for any rider needing a bit of light at night.

Bike Light http://fave.co/2kwRjNK

I got this light for my husband because he is always needing light where he works. This light is bright and he said when he attaches it to something it stays put. So, for those bike riders out there, this light will stay where you attach it. The light is bright and lasts for a long time on each charge. So far, my husband really loves this light.

Preschool Cooperative Play Bands


These preschool cooperative play bands are great. They can be used with toddlers, the elderly, or anyone experiencing balance issues.

Preschool cooperative play bands http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N7HFJNB?tag=homandlovit-20 width=

You attach these bands to chair legs or anything else sturdy that you have 4 of. You can place the bands high or low depending on who you are working with and what the reason is for working with them. For toddlers, these are great to help with coordination and balance. You could place them low to the ground and have the toddler walk around it, or jump over the bands or many other things. I can"t wait to use these with my grand daughter!
