Sleepace RestOn Monitor Review/Giveaway



  Do you sleep with someone who snores?  I do, my husband.  He even stops breathing and I have to shake him so he will take a breath.  When I was asked to review the Sleepace RestOn Monitor I was very excited.  We really needed to know his sleep patterns.
  To hook up the RestOn Monitor is so easy and it is a lot more accurate than wearing a wrist monitor.  This structure embeds a 2 ft. long medical grade sensor into a less than 2mm thin belt. All you need is a smart phone and this structure to monitor your sleep.

Dreft Laundry Detergent & #Amazinghood "Newborn Advice"- Review and Baby Shower Giveaway

Shop Dreft

  I believe all parents can agree on one thing about their babies - nothing smells like a newborn baby. I don't care who's baby it is, a newborn baby has the best smell in the world and we as parents love that smell.  As we all cuddle , hug, and kiss our new precious beings, we smell that smell and it is called - "new love".  After a few weeks that smell starts to change into - "getting older love" and we find ourselves wanting that "new love" smell back.  Well, of course we can't bottle the love we have for our children, but there is a product that has been used for generation to generation , that comes pretty close to reminding us of that "new love" smell and it also delicately cleans our babies clothes. That product is called "Dreft".

Bahlsen Biscuit/ Cookies Review/Giveaway

  Bahlsen Cookies have been around since 1889 when Hermann Bahlsen began his own business in Hannover, Germany.  This business is still carrying on today.  These biscuits have made generations of people happy.
  This company made their first famous product, the Leibniz Keks in 1891. Next, in 1904 they made their first moisture proof packaging, ensuring that every biscuit that left the plant was as crisp as when it left the oven.  By 1912, Hermann had sold 12 million of the Leibniz Keks making the new word for biscuits in Germany, Keks.
  Today, the Bahlsen's of this generation, have a variety of different types of biscuits using all natural ingredients.
  I was sent a variety box of these Bahlsen biscuits and cookies to try.  And they are so delicious!  My favorite is the Deloba Blueberry Biscuits.  These light and flaky biscuit/cookies have a taste that makes you wish you were somewhere in Paris with a cup of hot tea.  I love the little center of  the cookie where the blueberry is, it is so fresh and natural tasting.   Bahlsen only sells food that is made from the finest natural ingredients and and food cooked to the right perfection.

Summerscientist giveawayimage

   Summer is nearly here and that means so many fun things to do, cook-outs, swimming, camping and more,  But, with all the fun summer activities we still have something bad to deal with - mosquitoes!  Mosquitoes bite my grandchildren so bad and they swell and itch all over.  One of my grandsons is allergic to mosquito bites, he has to take benadryl immediately.  Mosquitoes are not just pesty, biting insects, they carry many various diseases.
  Thank goodness there are companies like Orkin, that study the lives of these nasty bugs.  They learn how to keep these horrible little creatures out of your homes and around your yard.  I don't believe anyone has learned yet how to kill all the mosquitoes, but Orkin has the best technology and researchers out there to fight off these, and all, yucky bugs and rodents to keep your home and family safer.

XyloBurst Gum & Lollipops Review - Win a $50 Giveaway





  It has taken Americans a long time to finally realize we are raising the most obese children in the world and it is carrying on into their adult life.  Finally, more people are trying to exercise, eat organic and cut back on the sugar.  I am a 56 year old woman, but sugar is my weakness.  I am like a kid when it comes to candy.  I love the sweet and sour, gummy candies.  But, after I eat it I am always left with a headache and hurting stomach.  I also am a big fan of sugar.  I love baking sugary cakes and cookies.  I was doing and eating all this junk until a few days ago and I decided to change my way of snaking and baking.  I was feeling so sluggish and yucky everyday and today I could feel the energy coming back since I have changed my sugar intake,
  One of the reasons I started changing was when I found out there are products out there that are "sweet" tasting , but don't contain actual sugar.  XyloBurst is one of these companies and it has so many awesome products.  Xylitol is actually a natural occurring alcohol found in fruits and vegetables. XyloBurst uses it in their gums, snacks and candy instead of sugar.  This stuff actually prevents tooth decay and dry mouth.  Xylitol when placed in the mouth, combined with saliva, reduces the amount of bacteria in your mouth that causes tooth decay.  So, this gum or their mints, are really good to have after a meal.  People with Diabetes can eat products with Xylitol in it and be fine. XyloBurst and the gum comes in great flavors like,Green Tea, Fruit, Spearmint and Cinnamon.  This gum is soft and dissolves easily in the mouth.  It is not gritty or hard to chew.  I love the Green Tea!

"The Once and Future Ocean" a Book by Peter Neill



  Water is one of the world's most valuable resources and with our Earth being covered by 70% water, it is vital that we take care of our oceans.  I am a lover of all our planet's resources: trees, water, air, and land and it makes me really mad that we humans are daily destroying all of these precious gifts.
  The ocean is the key to humanities survival.  Right now in Flint, Michigan their water is undrinkable and the author of this book states that now is not a day to soon for us to begin social, financial and political order around water. Based on a revolutionary paradigm shift toward a "new hydraulic society", individuals can be taught the necessity of change, the moral responsibility and the reality of the consequences if we don't act in time.  
  This book, "The Once and Future Ocean" by Peter Neill shows us all that the ocean is where we humans turn to for our fresh water, food, energy, health, political stability, security, community development and personal renaissance.  With 7.4 billion people on this Earth putting such demands on the condition of the oceans, water supply is being ruined at a very fast rate.  Neill has a solution, if everyone will come together and work to build new modes of living around our oceans.
