Boy's Costume Review & Giveaway!

Links to this post
I recently reviewed a boy's costume from Costume Discounters and was given the choice of any discounted boy's costume on the website. My six year old son, Dominic was allowed to participate in the costume selection, since the costume would be for him, and let me just say, he was overjoyed and overwhelmed! Costume Discounters has such a huge selection to choose from and all very reasonably priced!

Zombies - Child Zombie Ninja Costume Dominic chose the Zombie Ninja costume pictured at the left.

As soon as the costume arrived, he tried it on and for the rest of the evening, our family was entertained by the scary Zombie Ninja! The costume not only looked great and was very nice quality, but was easy to put on and keep on Dominic. What an amazing costume and now Dominic is ready for Halloween...if only I can keep the costume out of his reach for the next six months!

Costume Discounters offers costumes for everyone in the family. We chose the boy's costume but children and adults alike are sure to find a costume to fit their needs for Halloween, parties or any event that calls for dressing up!

Pambra's Bra Liner Review

Links to this post

I was recently given the opportunity to review this unusual product. I have to say that I was intrigued by this bra liner and eager to try it out! I also gave one to my mother to try out so that I could get a second, unbiased opinion. 

The Pambra Bra Liners are extremely comfortable and not at all bothersome. This product is not only great for absorbing perspiration, but also for that bra that we all know, the one that we love, but the wire makes it unbearable to wear for too long? This product is a cure for both problems. 

I can honestly say that there is not even one negative aspect about the Pambra Bra Liner. I would definitely recommend the bra liners to anyone who suffers from perspiration or any uncomfortable wire issues!

You can visit Pambra on Facebook, Twitter or their website!

Copy-Kids Eat Fruits and Vegetables Review & Giveaway!

Links to this post
This DVD may be one of the most effective tools today if you are trying to figure out how to get your toddler to try fruits and vegetables. My son, Tristan is 2 1/2 and is somewhat of a good eater, but there are those foods that just look strange to him and he won't even attempt to eat. The first time we watched the DVD together, he wanted to watch the foods he was familiar with, tomatoes, cucumbers, strawberries and apples. I convinced him to watch the other segments and we watched them over and over again! The next day we had broccoli for dinner and Tristan tried it with no problem or fuss! Amazing!

Like the old saying goes, "Monkey see, Monkey do". By watching these children eating such colorful and interesting foods, my toddler was more apt to do the same. What a great concept! I highly recommend this DVD to anyone struggling with children's eating habits.

You can visit Copy Kids on their website, Facebook or Twitter!

I received a copy of this DVD as a review tool, but was not compensated in any other way.

Copy Kids and Missi Rose's Coupon Spot would love to give one lucky fan a copy of this wonderful DVD. To enter, complete the Rafflecopter form below. Good Luck!

Boogie Wipes Review

Links to this post

Ok, I'm just going to say it...I LOVE Boogie Wipes! I have a two year old boy and a 6 year old boy, so needless to say, Boogie Wipes are awesome! 

Boogie Wipes are made with all natural saline. The saline basically dissolves the boogies or mucus caused by a cold, allergies or whatever is going on! My sons suffer from seasonal allergies so a nasty nose is not unusual. Thank goodness for that we had Boogie Wipes on hand to handle our mess!

I received a 30 count package and several individual packs to review, which are wonderful for carrying in my purse, pocket or diaper bag. 

Boogie Wipes are available in a variety of scents, grape, menthol, fresh scent and of course unscented! You can buy Boogie Wipes at your favorite store or online at, although one lucky fan will win two 30 count packs in this awesome giveaway!

"Unjunk Your Junk Food" Book Review

Links to this post
The Reviews Are In! Unjunk Your Junk Food-Healthy Alternative to Conventional Snacks

Have you ever looked at the labels on the food that you buy in the grocery store? I mean really look? Would you know what you're looking for? Well, I thought I did. Not only was I surprised at some of the poor choices I had been making for my family, but shocked at a few items that I thought were ok!

The book lists ingredients on a chart called "The Scary Seven". They are as follows:

  •  HFCS: High Fructose Corn Syrup (AKA glucose-fructose in Canada)
  • TRANS-FATS: Anything listed as "partially hydrogenated" or "hydrogenated" (this includes vegetable shortening)
  • MSG: Monosodium glutamate
  • ARTIFICIAL FLAVORS: Any artificial flavoring
  • ARTIFICIAL COLORS:Any type of artificial dyes
  • ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS: Chemical sweeterners including Aspartame, Splenda (sucralose), Ace-K (Acesulfame Potassium), Saccharine, etc.)
  • PRESERVATIVES: Polysorbate 60, 65 & 80, TBHQ, Sodium Benzoate, BHA, BHT, Sulfur Dioxide (sulfates).
A few that I found in my pantry were:
  1. Peanut Butter (my favorite brand!). This product contained Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil. I guess I should have known this one, but was totally unaware, as the taste is delicious. 
  2. Ranch Style Beans. Aren't beans supposed to be healthy? The can actually boasts the healthy aspects of buying this product, but after looking at the ingredients, I found they contained Hydrogenated Cottonseed and Soybean Oil.
  3. Ken's Italian Dressing. This just always sounds so "fresh" to me! But alas, the "bad" ingredients I found were Sodium Benzoate and Calcium Disodium.
Those were just a few of the many in my household and I have to say that the next time I shop for my family's food, I will certainly be more careful. The items above will not be in my shopping cart, as I will be searching for a more healthy alternative for each product.

This awesome book and more can be found on the Natural Savvy website. If you still have doubts, please read testimonials from celebrities including Maria Shriver and Alan Arkin! Also visit Naturally Savvy on FacebookTwitter and Pintrest!

Unjunk Your Junk Food can also be found at Barnes & Noble or

As a gift for completing this review, I was given a free copy of this book.

LOOPEEZ Product Review & Giveway

Links to this post
Loopeez is one of the most innovative, yet simple products available today in my opinion! I was slightly hesitant at first when trying this product with my six year old son. We've been working on learning to tie his shoes for awhile now and honestly, he would rather have velcro closures than bother with the frustration of laces.

When the Loopeez arrived, we immediately attached the Loopeez Shoe Tying Aid to his tennis shoes. The instructions were very easy to understand and Dominic mastered this in no time!

We were able to choose from several available styles, along with some really cool blue and white shoe laces. I love Loopeez and only wish they were available years ago!

Flushy, Sinky, Trashy Review & Giveaway!

Links to this post
Flushy, Sinky and Trashy are all products from Natural House. I was given the opportunity to review a 30 day supply of each product and was very impressed with the results.

Flushy Flushy Probiotic Cleaning packet is a powerful toilet bowl cleaner + Drain and Septic Treatment in one. Our professional strength formula cuts through stains, hard water and calcium deposits in the bowl. Our probiotics continue to consume toilet paper and waste build up in the p-trap, drain and pipes, and maintains the health of your septic system.

You merely, drop one of the packets in your toilet bowl, let it foam up then sit for about 10 minutes, then scrub. So easy and effective!

Sinky Sinky Probiotic Cleaning packet breaks down grease and food scraps to help prevent clogs and slow drains. Used weekly, Sinky will scour your drain and disposal driving out odors at their source.

These packets are similar to the Flushy packets, but you drop these in your sink drain, run hot water for a few minutes and as it foams, it’s cleaning your drain and pipes! No more ugly smell from the dreaded drain!

Trashy Trashy Probiotic Cleaning removes odors at their source. Use trashy in your indoor or outdoor trash cans to dissolve odors, grease and food scraps.

This product is awesome! One of my pet peeves is a smelling trash can. This spray can be used anywhere and completely dissolves that “trash” odor and replaces it with a fresh, clean smell!

Review & Giveaway: Nickels; A Tale of Dissociation

Links to this post

This product review is for a book titled, NICKELS; A Tale of Dissociation, by Christine Stark. This is a book that I am very happy to have been chosen to read and review.

NICKELS is about a young girl, beginning at the age of 5 who is going through sexual, mental, and emotional abuse by her father. Her mother is aware of some abuse, but chooses to ignore it and be “the happy family.”  Over the years, the constant abuse affects her more and more, and she develops multiple personalities. She disassociates herself with her life when times are tough and becomes someone else, someone very different than herself.

“Little Miss So and So”, as she refers to herself, goes through foster homes, losing friends, humiliation, and confusion. All of these things consume her until she meets a special someone, the only person in her entire life that has ever come close to understanding and helping her to cope.

I definitely do not want to give away the entire story line, but I can honestly say that NICKELS is a must read!

Read this wonderful, insightful story along with many other awesome books from Loving Healing Press, Inc., all available for purchase on!

Two lucky winners will also have the opportunity to experience the riveting tale of Little Miss So and So! Enter HERE!

Mixbooks Birth Announcement Review

Links to this post
I was recently selected to receive and review customized birth announcements from Mixbooks. Although I do not personally need birth announcements, the timing was perfect because my sister-in-law just gave birth to the newest addition to our family, Derin Landon.

The selection and order process was so easy, quick and simple! We chose a "jungle theme" with a little monkey on the announcement and added the baby's name and date of birth. Although not shown here, there is also an option to customize the back of the card with information such as weight, length, etc...You can upload pictures from your computer, Facebook, Flickr, and Yahoo! Photo to use for your photo projects. The possibilities are endless!

 Another wonderful thing that I really liked about Mixbook is that once you place the order, you have 2 hours to make any changes before it is closed for editing. This is awesome if you want to get another opinion or if you change your mind about the theme. Mixbooks also offers many other products such as photo books, photo calendars, invitations, stationary, and the option for a digital scrapbook. I highly recommend this company if you are looking for any personalized, reasonably priced, high quality product.
