{ Review } The SNOTARATOR Nasal Vacuum Review.

I hooked the Snotarator to my vacuums attachment.  It really does fit, and the suction wasn't a lot, it was a consistent pressure the whole time the snotarator was in.  My son isn't afraid of the vacuum so the noise did not bother him.  He has been snotty lately, and it did work.

You can see the snot that came out his nose with no effort, I barely put the Snotarator to his nostrils.  It did not hurt him ( I did try it on myself before putting it near his face, and it really is safe.)

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Nickelodeon 2012 Holiday Gift Guide: Dora, Bubble Guppies, Team UmiZoomi

Life According To GreenVics 2012 Holiday Gift Guide,

My two year old is a total Nick Jr fan.  Because of his Dora The Explorer love, one of his first words were Backpack. Which I found super cute.  This is the Dora Deluxe Bin Organizer.  SRP $44.99. It's bright, colorful, and extremely playful.  We embrace all spectrum of colors in this family, there is no "girls/boys" only items. The organizer was easy to set up, and his room looks so much better.

Bubble Guppies Gil & Molly!

I am even guilty of getting the Bubble Guppies Theme Song stuck in my head.  These are the Bubble Guppies Gil & Molly plush characters SRP $12.99.  They are 7" tall, extremely soft.  If you've never seen Bubble Guppies, they teach math, literacy, and they sing/dance.

{ Giveaway } Pomegranate Capsules & Pomegranate Liquid Review

Pomegranates are known to have 3x the antioxidants to GreenTea & Red wine.  It's also known to work as an anti-inflammatory agent.  I wanted to see what I liked better, the capsules, or the liquid.  NeoCell sent me both to review.

The 1,000 mg Pomegranate Capsules, Serving size are 2 capsules.  They have no after taste, and I had no problem swallowing.

However, even though the capsules were easy to consume,  I did like the Collagen+C 6,600 mg liquid better.  It does need to be refrigerated after opening, but I found an old ML medicine cap to use to measure out the 15ml needed for serving size.  The taste is a little tangy, tho I don't mind.  I like sour/bitter/tangy things.

The liquid also combines more than just pomegranate, there is cranberry, elderberry, greentea, and collagen+C.  Usually I would've just chose the capsule form, and passed the liquid up in store, but because of NeoCell allowing me to sample both I can honestly say I like the liquid better.  Anything that can help my hair, bones, and ligaments I will give it a try. I received these products for free for my honest opinion.

a Rafflecopter giveaway
U.S. Only. Giveaway begins 12/11/12, Ends 12/19/12.  Must be 18+ Winner will be chosen random via RaffleCopter.  Winners chose of either capsule, or liquid.  Life According To GreenVics is not responsible for Prize Fulfillment.

Life According To GreenVics, Holiday Gift Guide: 3-Piece Hardwood Handle BBQ Tool Set.

Recently I received Man-Laws 3pc Hardwood BBQ Tool set.  My husbands face says it all. He loves to BBQ so he was super excited to have a "Man Size" BBQ Tool Set. There is nothing little, or poor quality about these utensils. I still can't get over how big his smile is when I gave these to him. I keep telling him to go out to the patio, and make me some steaks.

{ Giveaway } Stained Glass Window Film Review

Recently I reviewed Wall Paper For Windows,  Atlantis Stained Glass Window Film. There is no trimming, and they are adhesive free.  I really needed a privacy option for my side window that receives a lot of walk by action in my apartment complex. There are always tenants cutting through to go else where. One day I noticed my Toddler smiling, and waving at a stranger outside that was waving back so I decided I needed a change. After researching window films, I came across

Little Man enjoying the colors of the stained glass film.

I measured my window, and customer service custom made me a film that would fit. I installed it myself, and it really is so easy to put up. I just cleaned the window, sprayed a little bit of water on, peeled the backing off the film, and placed on my window. It does come with a tool that I used to flatten out the air bubbles.

The Window Film worked perfectly for what I needed it for. It's nice not having to worry about my little man messing with the blinds, or strangers waving to him from outside. These are great for us people that live in apartments that still want light to come in, without showing everyone in the complex whats in your living room.   

Outside View,  No one can see in with the blinds up.

Wall Paper For Windows offers all sorts of styles, from stained glass, to etched, various designs. Everything can be made custom for the window size. If you'd like to learn more, check them out online, facebook, and twitter.

I received this item for free, for my honest opinion. The experience, and photos are my own.

Happy 2nd Birthday Baby Sy!

Today is my little mans 2nd Birthday.  I never thought I would end up a mommy.  I had my first kid at almost 30, and I would not change anything.  Sometimes it can be rough, and lonely since my family are all in another state but everyday achievements remind me that life is precious, and the little things really do matter. 

1st Birthday Icing Face, aww He's changed so much in just a year.
I will have birthday pictures later today if you all would like to see!  We are going to celebrate, then let him pick some fishes out at Aquarium World.  He's always been fascinated with the Zoo/Aquarium, and our fish tank at home.

See you all on Monday! Panda & Red/Brown Kids Backpack.

Fun was had by all the day we reviewed Panda, and Red Backpack. My little man is almost 2 years old, and he loves his stuffed animals, and yes.. one of his first words was backpack. So when I came across PatchBuddies I was so excited that it combined two of his favorite things.

The backpack is made extremely well. The stuffed buddies can be placed on the outside hole, and they do stay in with no problem. When the buddies arent in the outside hole, the inside is zippered, and there is plenty of space like a normal sized small childs backpack (The hole does not go straight through.)

My little man is extremely active, he loves to run, climb, and just explore. The patchbuddy did stay on, there are straps/snaps that could be adjusted down to his size.

I received these products for free, for my honest review. You can find online, Facebook & Twitter. Patch Buddies has bunnies, Cows, Birds, all kinds of different characters. 

I think patch buddies are extremely adorable, and whenever he wears it (carries his own snacks in it.) I think how big my baby is getting.  Maybe I am biased, but to me, he is the cutest little boy on the playground.

{ Giveaway } Libre 9oz Loose Leaf Tea Glass Bottle Review.

Recently I had the opportunity to review Libre Loose Leaf Tea Glass Bottle.  The bottle itself is thermal, and double glassed.  I'm a huge fan of green tea.  I like to make my own green tea, then add a little bit of mango to add a little sweetness to it. This is the 9oz bottle.  It's pretty beautiful for being a reusable glass water bottle.

The layered holographic design on the top makes this reusable loose leaf tea bottle very unique.  I adore gifts like these.

I also liked the fact I experienced no weird metallic after taste from the filter, it's also BPA Free.  To learn more about going Green with reusable products, you should check out, they have something for everything.  During the summer I reviewed the Reusable Insulated Bag, that looked more like a tote/purse, and received lots of compliments.

{ Giveaway } Go Max Food Candy Bars Review & Giveaway

Go Max Go Foods has some of the best All Natural candy bars I have ever experienced.  Not only are the names fun, but the chocolate, and ingredients were delicious.  I also liked the fact they are a cruelty free company.  Some of the bars are dairy-free & vegan, along with gluten-free.  

The Snap! bar was my favorite.  It's crispy, chocolatey, really I didn't even notice a difference.  I just know I enjoyed the bar.

Then comes Cleos Peanut Butter cups, oh, my, they are perfect.  The peanut butter itself is just smooth, and natural tasting.  I loved that the combination of the chocolate, and the peanut butter didn't overpower each other like another brand does from sweetness.   These I could taste each different layer the way good food should be.

Cleos & Snaps are both Gluten-Free.  You can find out more about the other bars by going here to Go Max Go Food.  There are alternatives to different candy bars, so maybe you can find your favorite, but a better quality of that favorite.  

I received these products for free to review.  I am always on the look out to better alternatives to share with you all.  These really are delicious, and a great treat to indulge in.

{ Giveaway } The Swiss Colony Sugar Free Holiday Tower Review & Giveaway

Whether you are diabetic, know someone that is diabetic or just someone that wishes to restrict their sugar intake The Swiss Colony has the perfect Sugar Free Holiday Tower for you! This tower retails for $39.95.

Included in the tower are:

  • Fruity Gels
  • Jelly Belly Jelly Beans
  • Cherry Cordials
  • Petit Fours
  • Salt Water Taffys

I enjoyed them all.  I couldn't even tell they were Sugar Free.  I watch my sugar intake, and I am guilty of taking Cinnamon Pills when I indulge a little too much on real sugar.  What I really like about this Holiday Tower are the cute individual boxed, and wrapped little packages.  There is something for whatever sweet treat mood I am in at the moment.  

At the very top of the tower were the Sugar Free Fruity Gels.  I thought, wow! What trickery! These taste so sweet.  

Next were the Sugar Free Cherry Cordials.  I will admit, these are my favorites out of the whole tower.  Everything tasted GREAT, but I am a big fan of Chocolate Covered cherries, and the cherry is just mouth watering along w/the sugar free chocolate.  The liquid is clear inside too.  I'm not a fan of the "white filling" on some chocolate covered cherries so I was pleased to see these had the clear!! 

Beneath the Cordials are the Individual wrapped Sugar Free Assorted Jelly Belly Jelly bean flavors! I didn't even know Jelly Belly had sugar free jelly beans! Of course these were all delicious. Love, Love, Love, LOVE Jelly Belly.  As you can tell by my posts that I am a fan of items that have an assortment of things/flavors! This isn't a "big" tower, but it is big on flavor, and assortment.

Then comes the Sugar Free Salt Water Taffy.  These were my 2nd favorite after the Cherry Cordials.  The taffy is soft, stretchy, sweet, and everything Taffy should be.  I'm a sucker for good taffy.  Sometimes I go to local sweet festivals just for the fresh made salt water taffy.

Finally, but not forgotten in the least are the Petit Fours.  They come in a cute tin.  I love these things. They are like a mix between a petite 4 layered cake. Sinfully sweet, and yet Sugar free.

The tower arrived in a Red/White The Swiss Colony box.  The packing itself was quit impressive.  All the gift boxes were arranged together already. All I did was pull the tower out the box, and it was set up for me.

The Swiss Colony has been making Gifts since 1927. Including Cheeses, spreads, specialty meats, chocolates, award-winning butter toffee, cakes, tortes, kringles, brownies, candy, cookies, Gluten Free, and Sugar Free items!

I received these samples for free to review.  One lucky follower will also win a Sugar Free Holiday Tower too! U.S. Residents Only.  Giveaway begins 12/6/2012, and ends 12/13/2012.  Winner is chosen at random via Raffle Copter. Prize Value is $39.95. Winner has 24 hours to verify winning email. If winner is not verified, prize is forfeited and another winner will be chosen at random.  It's so close to the Holidays that I want this to be fast! So check your emails after the 13th!!
