Friday, September 12, 2014 PhotoBook Review and Deal

Create a professional photo book with a single click using's One-Click Photo Book. Select photos of any size from Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, or your computer and they will instantly suggest a clean, professional layout that you can further customize.

I am thankful to I was given the opportunity to build 2 photo books for free to review. I realized quickly that it was going to take some time to decide which pictures I wanted to include. So, I grabbed a nice drink and sat down at my computer for what would ultimately take about 3 hours. I will note, though, that once you create an account you can save the projects you are working on to be able to return at a later time to finish them up. I just couldn't get away. I found designing my perfect books to be quite fun.

I started out with the 20-page 8"x6" softcover photo book and included mostly pictures of my kids over the years. A great idea would be to dedicate a book to each year. That would be a great way to show the changes made in one year. My pictures are not quite organized enough for all that.

This book is softcover so it is fairly thin and easy to handle. As far as I can tell, all of the same features are available in both hard and soft cover books. So on the inside you can arrange pictures however you like.
There are lots of choices for backgrounds, frames, text, and many other special features to add flair to your book.
For the larger hard cover book, I thought it would be nice to make it a dedication to my upcoming 2nd anniversary. This is the cover and it was originally this picture.

It turned out a little darker than I would have liked but I am still pleased. I probably should have chose a lighter picture.
I am very pleased with the overall quality of each book and the look of the pages. I feel that this is a great idea and turned out to be a great keepsake.
Each picture is able to be cut and cropped and edited however you like. 
The entire site is very easy to navigate and, like I said before, It is very fun!

Label Daddy Zipper Tags Review
Hello friends! I know school has been back in session for a little while for my kids. Going back to school meant knowing some of the items we are spending our hard earned money on will end up in the lost and found bin at school.
Most often my kids leave their coats or backpacks on the school bus. I found this website LabelDaddy that makes washable labels in many styles. 

These labels are super durable peel-and-stick washable labels -- they're washer/dryer safe, microwave safe, dishwasher safe and UV resistant! Label Daddy labels are also fun and attractive. You design your own labels! Pick from tons of colors, sizes and logos, including Disney and Marvel characters, MLB, NBA, and NHL team logos, other sport and fun logos, and more. Our exclusive laminated coating gives labels an extra layer of protection and is a must for camp! These labels are made in the USA and shipped directly to you worldwide.

I was able to choose a pack for free to review. 
I chose the zipper tags since my kids often lose items that these would easily attach to. I let my girls pic the design they wanted. Surprisingly, They are hockey buffs! So they chose the Nashville Predators symbol on the front. I chose to put both of their names on the back since they share so many things. 

 I was thrilled to see that both of their names fit on the tag.
 These tags are great for jackets, backpacks, and pencil pouches.
Made of durable metal and sturdy construction you can tag anything with a zipper!
 I love these tags and would like to share this great deal with all my readers!

Huggies Little Snugglers Review

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Huggies & Target. I received samples for this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

 My little buddy Aden is tickled that I have found him some cozy diapers. Generic diapers just aren't fit for babies with sensitive skin. A hug is the first thing your baby feels so shouldn't the second thing be equally soft? I think so. 

I picked up these Huggies Little Snugglers from Target. And, did I mention Target is my favorite store ever? They have the best deals and everything is so organized and easy to find. The store is clean and all of the staff I have encountered has been friendly. 
If you are expecting, I have some good news for you about's baby registry. If you add Huggies diapers or wipes to your registry and upload your registry link to Huggies Register Your Wish Website, you can be entered to win a year supply of free diapers! How awesome is that? I know when I registered with my babies I had lots of onesies, wipes, and diapers! Those are the most important things in my opinion.

 Sensitive skin is a common issue for babies. I just try to make sure to keep them clean and dry. Always checking that diaper is a must. Wouldn't it be nice if you could just look at the diaper and see if it is wet? No more squeezing a mushy nappy. Well, Guess what? It is possible. Huggies Little Snugglers has a wetness indicator on the outside of the diaper so you can just look and see if the diaper is wet. It also has a snug fit and pocketed waistband with a gentle, secure fit so messes don't find their way out of the back of the diaper. 

These diapers are soft inside and out so you and the baby can snuggle in comfort. There is a gentle absorb liner for added cushiony layer and also draws moisture away from the baby's sensitive skin. 

I really love these diapers. They have a nice secure fit so, We had no trouble with leaks. I enjoy the wetness indicator, because it allows me to notice right away when he is wet so I can change him quickly. The softness was a plus as well, no more stiff cardboard feeling diapers. 

In comparison to other leading diapers, Huggies Little Snugglers are comparable in price at $11.99 for a jumbo pack and $22.99 for a big pack. Diaper counts vary per package according to size. There are 5 sizes available ranging from Preemie (up to 6 lbs) to Size 3 (16-18 lbs) Some of the smaller sizes even have an umbilical cut-out for sensitive belly buttons. Availability isn't a problem either, since Huggies Little Snugglers are available at most grocery stores and mass retailers nationwide! Easy to find products are awesome. I hate when I get used to a product and then all of a sudden I cannot find it anywhere. That is such a bummer.

So, Overall I definitely recommend these diapers. That snuggley softness is sure to be cozy on any baby. So go on and make the second thing your baby feels be as soft as that first hug.

Bee Sili Popsicle Molds & Lunchbox Containers Review

Go Green with Six Reusable, Bpa Free, Food Grade Non-Toxic Silicone, FDA Approved 

I love these molds! I was not expecting them to as big as they were. That was a nice surprise. When I saw the rubber caps I thought maybe they would leak out into the freezer so I placed them in a few different position in the freezer. I placed a few standing on their tops in a bowl just in case and placed one laying flat and one propped with the big end up. There was only one blowout, and that involved my daughter checking the done-ness only 5 minutes into the process. Also I really like that they can serve as little snack holders. Nuts or little candies can fit and stay secure nicely in a lunch box. Perfect for packing those lunches.

6 Foot Extension Cables by Solid Cordz Review
I have tried many different extension cords around my home and I have found they seem to be bulky and ugly. These Extension Cables by Solid Cordz are a sleek black and blend perfectly with the original cords being plugged in. They don't stand out as much as some other cords. The cords very quality made and the plug is built strong. I think these will last for a long time. I recommend extension cables for anyone's home or office use.

Grazia Silicone 24 Cup MINI Muffin Pan Review

I have to rave on this muffin pan. I already had the regular size muffin pan and needed the one for mini muffin too. I made the mistake of just buying a metal one and the moment I tried prying my muffin out of those little holes I regretted that decision. I am so glad I found this silicone mini muffin pan. They bake perfectly and you can just pop the muffins out from the bottom. I love it and with just a spritz of cooking spray they are nonstick.

My thoughts: This is a great garlic press. Their claims are not false by any means. I was quite impressed by the sturdy construction. The large basket holds 2-3 smaller cloves or 1-2 large cloves. There was no need to chop before hand and even pressed the garlic with the skins on. I felt the handle were a little large but my 9 yr old daughter who frequents my side in the kitchen was able to use with ease. This is a great product and I recommend to anyone who uses fresh garlic and hates those yucky smelling hands!

Bulletproof Picasso By Train Album Review

I participated in the Train Bulletproof Picasso album review program
 as a member of One2One Network.
 I was provided a free album to review but all opinions are my own.

I often find myself listening to the same few songs over and over again. When I finally get tired of them, I will browse the web for new tunes and find some new addictive songs to listen to for the next 6 months.
This song, "Angel In Blue Jeans" by Train caught my attention and I cannot stop listening to it.

Train has sold more than ten million albums worldwide, thirty million tracks worldwide, with numerous platinum/gold citations on their mantle, 3 Grammy Awards, 2 Billboard Music Awards and dozens of other honors and nominations.

"Angel in Blue Jeans" has already soared to the Top 15 of the Top 40 charts. I enjoy listening to some good tunes while I clean and Let's just say I have at least 5 new songs making their rounds into my playlist. The entire album has a great sound, but you know the songs that just hit you and you can't get them out of your head?
Well, I have "Bulletproof Picasso" on the brain right now.

If you rocked out to Hey Soul, Sister or swooned over Drops Of Jupiter and Calling All Angels, then you’re going love Bulletproof Picasso

Train's Bulletproof Picasso is set to release September 16, 2014 but is available NOW for pre-order on 
Amazon and iTunes right now for only $7.99.

Show Train some love on their
Website, Twitter, YouTube or Facebook pages!!
