Zitrio Apple MFI Certified Lightning Cable REVIEW!

The Zitrio Apple MFI Certified Lightning Cable does just what it says. It charges my Iphones 5c and 6 very quickly. It charges faster than most of my other chargers. The indicator light. It lets me know that it's plugged in and working. My main issue is I have Otter Boxes on my phone which means I have to remove the cases in order to charge my phones. So if you have a case that adds bulk to your phone just know you'll have to remove the case to charge your phone. The reason you'll have to remove the case is the light has a rather large "base" housing it so it makes it nearly impossible to plug into a phone with a larger protective case on it. Other than that it's a good charger.

Pampers Cruisers

Pampers and Influenster were kind enough to send the princess some Pampers Cruiser diapers to test. All I can say is this cloth diaper mama was impressed and will recommend them to all my friends who use disposable diapers.  ‪#‎SagToSwag‬ ‪#‎influenster‬

Baby Sonny Pacifier Clip REVIEW

These are great for more than just pacifiers. I like using these to secure my princess' toys to my LilleBaby baby carrier while I wear her. That way when she throws the toys they don't go far and/or hit the ground. The "ribbon" is high quality and thick yet not so thick that it is bulky. The clips are a hard plastic and have multiple "teeth" to insure you have a secure fit when the clip is closed. This is a great quality product for a great price.

* I received this product in exchange for my 100% honest opinion *

Here's what the company has to say about their product:

CUTE FUN AND STYLISH DESIGN - Keep bubba's dummy to hand and clean with our gorgeous pacifier clips. Your little one will love the animals and soft feeling of the leash and parents will love knowing that dummy is there when needed, no more unbearable crying whilst you search for a clean dummy!!
STRONG & DURABLE - Our pacifier holders are made with high quality plastic clips that won't pull off. The high end finish to stitching and the quality of textiles used result in an extremely well made clip that can be used until your little one no longer needs it. Couple that with the super soft leash that bubba will love!!
SUPER FUNCTIONAL - Baby Sonny pacifier clips are compliant with all dummy's that have an attached ring and they also have a multitude of uses. Attach to bubba's clothes and then to their teething products, soothers and favourite stuffed animals, so you can relax knowing they are where they need to be. You can also use them as a blanket clip for making sure baby stays covered up when out and about.
PERFECT GIFT - Perfect gift choice for new Mums and Dads, cute yet functional, perfect for baby shower!!

Aleratec Windshield/Dashboard Smartphone Mount REVIEW

This mount is super easy to use. It works with my Iphone6 and my Iphone5c. When you get it it comes in two separate pieces that easily snap together. The suction cup is sticky which makes it even more secure to your dashboard. It easily adjusts to almost any phone size. The mount is made from high quality materials which make you feel safe about having your costly smart phone in it.

Here's what the company has to say about their product:

  • Adjustable smartphone mount for car dashboards or windshields
  • Secure side grips accommodate smartphones with up to 5.5-inch screens
  • Easily rotates from portrait to landscape view
  • Adjustable side grips won't interfere with power or volume buttons
  • Installs in seconds and stays put with sticky gel suction cup

Since it's getting a little "cooler" here I figured I'd make the princess and I some soup. My friend Laura had posted a picture of her  Baked Potato Soup on Instagram and I just had to make some for us. It was super simple to make and was done by the time we came home from shopping and the pumpkin patch. 

Here is the recipe I used :Baked Potato Soup

Since Kennady has a dairy allergy I swapped out the dairy items for non dairy / vegan items. The end result was amazing. We had it two days in a row. The princess is getting quite good with her spoon :)


Caring Corners REVIEW

I have a small blog/work station in my bedroom. The princess loves playing in the bedroom while I try to get things done. These have saved the princness' head more than once. These Caring Corners fit perfectly on the pointy parts of my desk where the key board is. They were easy to put on. You just peel the paper off and stick them on. They're high quality and very cushiony. They fully cover the other corners on my desk as well. I have not had any problems with my daughter pulling or peeling them off. They feel pretty secure.

*i received this product in exchange for my 100% honest review *

Here's what the company has to say about their product:

Prepping for Halloween!!

OMG Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays. Of course my princess can't just have one outfit  she must have many for different events! I mean come on she can't wear the same outfit to the pumpkin patch that she wore to the mommy and me Halloween party! lol  Since she is a full "eater" now I ordered her an allergy alert shirt for a party. After gymnastics a nice mom tried to offer Kennady a cookie. I had to run over and intercept it since I had no idea what was in it and I assumed it wasn't wheat free (tiny human is allergic to wheat). So I figured an allergy alert shirt would be a good "investment". Chances are we wont go trick-or-treating but hey that's ok. We found a few parties to go to for tiny ones.

I found out something cool. There is now something called the "Teal Pumpkin Project". You paint a pumpkin teal and put it outside to show that you are giving out non food treats. That way kids with allergies can have fun too and get treats that wont harm them. I think this is an awesome project. I am going to go out and get some crayon and coloring book mini packs and donate those to the church we are going to a party at. 

I'm still narrowing down the princess' costumes. I bought a few last year that were too big so they fit this year! YAY!!!! They were like 75% off after Halloween so I couldn't pass them up. #FrugalMom
So we shall see what I pick out for her to wear. Stay tuned :)

Acquapura Personal Water Filter REVIEW!

Since we do a lot of long distance driving  I keep an emergency kit in the car. I love being prepared for the "just in case". I even keep MREs in my emergency kit lol . So this water filter was the perfect addiction to my kit. It's light and easy to use. Even tho it's light the plastic is a nice and sturdy. It's not one of those cheap ones you get from the big box retailers. The triple layer filtration system makes me feel even more comfortable using it in a stream or lake. In my opinion it's very important to keep the "back wash" syringe so in the event the water isn't 100% clear you can wash out the filter. So don't lose or miss place it. The unit also comes with extra filters which is always good. All in all a great product.

* I received this water filter in exchange for my 100% honest opinion *

Primed4U Wireless head phones REVIEW

I love all things music. I listen to music on my IPhone all the time while I'm in the car. I have gotten my hand or something else caught on the cord causing my phone to drop and hit the ground. With my new wireless head phones I don't have that problem anymore.  I received these adorable pink wireless / blue tooth head phones from Primed4U. They're super easy to use and fit perfectly in my elf-like ears. The sound quality is excellent. The volume control is on the right ear piece. I can't say it enough I LOVE these things. You charge them with a standard USB charger. I keep my charger plugged into my charging hub on my desk. This is a high quality product.

DanceCrazy Stretch Straps REVIEW

I start my morning out with stretching. Its a way to get my body ready for chasing after my tiny royal princess. I've danced my entire life and have never owned a stretch strap. After getting this strap I'm kicking myself for not having gotten it sooner. It's made from high quality materials. It has 10 loops (5 on each side) to put your feet . I like that there are 5 on each side. My right leg doesn't bend / stretch as far as my left leg so I can put my left foot in a loop closer to the top and my right foot in one closer to the bottom. This allows me to stretch both legs without hurting the leg that isn't as flexible. This is a great product for everyone from an advanced dancer / fitness person to a beginner who's just starting out on their fitness journey. ! I wish I was more talented so I could take a picture of me using them lol. 

* I received this strap in exchange for my 100% honest opinion *

Here's what the company has to say about their product:

The DanceCrazy Ultra Stretch Strap!
Simple, yet extremely helpful in stretching.

Brand New from DanceCrazy, an aid in stretching muscles before or after a workout. Great product for people who have always found stretching un-assisted to be difficult. Allows you to finally get a good stretch on your own!

First Gymnastics Class

Well I took the royal princess to her first gymnastics class. It was a mommy and me sort of class. She sat down (for awhile) with the other kids and went through the obstacle course. We started with stretching then moved on to front rolls. She REALLY liked those. After front rolls then the kids would walk across the floor level balance beam. Then start the rotation all over again. The next rotation was crawling through a tunnel , going to the big trampoline , hanging from the bar, crawling across the parallel bars and flipping into the ball pit. She loved the ball pit the most of course. I may have to invest in her own ball pit.The gym as a whole was PACKED. Easily 100 kids in the big main room. Thankfully Kennady's class is in a mid size room off to the side. They took us on a mini tour of the big room while getting the kids some water. The teachers all seemed very nice and the kids looked like they were having a lot of fun. I may try a couple more schools before I make a final decision on where to send her. I feel like this was a good star tho.
