Kakadu Pet Explorer Fleece Coat Review and Giveaway!



How cute is this?  This little guy is 'Pogi', my parents child dog!  Since I was given the chance to review the Kakadu Explorer Fleece Coat, well, who better to help me review it then my brother parents dog!

Pogi is very very fluffy, which causes him to have more girth around his middle.  This particular coat size was right, however the XS was a bit snug on him.  I think if he had a 'hair cut' it would fit just perfect!

The coat was very easy to put on with the velcro tabs.  The fleece underneath was super soft.  And although, Pogi couldn't tell us what he thought.. he graciously posed for the picture and didn't seem to paw at the coat at all.  

The coat is made very well with excellent quality.  

I cannot believe I am saying this.. but.. Dogs deserve a little something at Christmas.  

I give the Kakadu Pet Explorer Fleece Coat a thumbs up!

Cradle Rock CD Series Review and Giveaway!



I recently was given the opportunity to review 3 "Cradle Rock" Lullaby CDs for children. I had my kids nearby as I listened to each CD.  I honestly was not sure how they were going to turn Michael Jackson, Johnny Cash, and Kenny Chesney songs into a lullaby like sound.  However, I was pleasantly surprised at how soothing they turned out to be! 

The Cradle Rock Series:

Cradle Rock Pop with lullaby versions of Songs recorded by Michael Jackson.

Cradle Rock Country with lullaby versions of songs recorded by Kenny Chesney

Cradle Rock Country with lullaby versions of songs recorded by Johnny Cash


The songs are familiar to me...so the soft sound is very pleasant, and my children were thrilled.  I was shocked to hear my 6 year old son say "Hey, Mom, can I have these CDs in my room.  I really like them".  


I highly recommend these CDS not only for your children, but for YOU as well!  These would make wonderful stocking stuffers!

A Few Song Examples:

Out Last Night - Kenny Chesney
Summertime - Kenny Chesney
Cry, Cry, Cry - Johnny Cash
I Walk the Line - Johnny Cash
Baby Be Mine - Michael Jackson
Billie Jean - Michael Jackson





A Little Info from the Company Press Release:


“Cradle Rock” (http://www.cradlerockstore.com), a series of children’s lullaby albums produced and created by Brash Music and Tree Top Records, hit stores and digital distribution channels October 25th. Cradle Rock uses vibraphones, glockenspiels and mellotrons to turn iconic songs and albums by top artists such as Kenny Chesney and Johnny Cash into naptime-friendly listening material. With Cradle Rock, parents can introduce their children to some of the greatest albums ever recorded including the first ever urban album turned into lullabies, Michael Jackson’s Thriller (released 29 years ago November 30th).        
“Parents will appreciate that Cradle Rock keeps melodic structure and tempos in tact,” says Steve Jones, CEO of Brash Music. “Moms and dads write us saying they can sing right along to Cradle Rock while rocking baby to sleep.” Cradle Rock albums in development include U2’s “The Joshua Sleep Tree,” Black Eyed Peas’ “Sleep-pea Hits” as well as lullaby albums inspired by NickelbackCarrie Underwood and The Eagles.


Would you like a chance to Win ONE CD from the Cradle Rock Series??

Eco Store Product Review


If you are like me, then you always looking for products that are safe for your home and children.  Eco Store offers a variety of products from cleaning products, toiletry items, laundry products, and even pet products.  I was given the opportunity to review the Rose and Cardamon Body Wash and the Lemon Rinse Aid!


What did I think of the Rose and Cardamon Body Wash?

This scent reminds me of Victorian times!  I love it.  The liquid body wash was a clear soap.  Lathered nicely, but the smell was fresh and left my skin feeling soft.  





Eco Store:


Enjoy top-to-toe luxury with our new rose & cardamon body wash. The blend of certified organic essential oils adds a fresh summer fragrance to the naturally derived ingredients and moisturizers.
Unlike many leading brands, ecostore USA body care products do not contain Sodium Lauryl Sulphate, artificial dyes, perfumes or preservatives which means they are extremely kind to sensitive skin.
Ingredients
  • Water
  • Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate
  • Sodium Lauroamphoacetate
  • Wheat Germamidopropyldimonium
  • Hydroxypropyl Hydrolysed Wheat Protein
  • Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride
  • Sodium Hydroxymethyl Glycinate
  • Certified Organic Fragrance




What Did I think of the Lemon Rinse Aid?



WOW!  I love it!  Living in the Southwest, most cities tend to have hard water.  And if you know anything about hard water.. it leaves your dishes spotted and really unappealing.  I have tried many things to help with this issue.  And nothing seems to really work.  Well, until now, that is...   The Lemon Rinse Aid is incredible.  I add just a little to each or every other dishwasher load.  My glasses are sparkling now.  Even my silverware looks so nice.  My husband is quite pleased with this product as well!  I highly recommend the Lemon Rinse Aid!  Not only does it work, but its chemical free!!


Eco Store:

The Lemon Rinse Aid is that final touch to the cleaning of your dishware. Formulated with NO NASTY CHEMICALS, it will leave a subtle fragrance of Lemon Verbena. Use in conjunction with the Auto Dish Powder and see how it assists in drying as well. (6.8 fluid ounces)
 
Ingredients
  • Plant based non-ionic surfactants
  • Citric acid
  • Hydrotope
  • Lemon Verbena
  • Water



Please check out the Eco Store for all their family friendly, chemical free products!  The prices are reasonable (Many items have just been reduced by 30%)  and they offer FREE SHIPPING for all orders over $25!  Eco Store would love if you join them over at Facebook and Twitter!

A little about me...



It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
