WAHMIES All Day Wetbag

0

These are the three sizes available for a Wahmies wet bag.  The one I reviewed was an:  All Day size which measures approximately 16″ x 20″.  This size is great for all day outings, spending the day at Grandma’s…anything where the regular size bag just isn’t quite large enough. The All Day size also has a webbed handle for ease of carrying, hanging on a door knob or hook. MSRP $18.50 This Wahmies All Day Wet Bag is being sponsored by Cloth Diaper Market. 

I found this wet bag would hold about a day’s worth of diapers, and it did indeed keep the wet out.  The handle was useful to hang on the door in the bathroom.  I just wish the bag was a tad bigger.  I think this bag would be perfect for a day at the beach or swimming pool to take home all of the wet clothes.  It is also a great size for travelling to bring home all the wet diapers.

Spotted Leopard Monogrammed Door/Wall Hanging

0
I love this beautiful wall piece by Spotted Leopard.  I have only had it hanging for a few days and have received several comments on it.  The M is covered in moss and then sprayed with a fixative to preserve the green.  A burlap bow finishes the look making this a wonderful addition to my decor.  This can also be used as a front door wreath on a non-holiday month. The Spotted Leopard has a variety of moss and shell covered creations.  Here is the new site with her portfolio.   Her creations would be perfect for your wedding on church doors or reception barn doors, garden gate etc and then bring home as a keepsake to display in your house.  The giveaway portion of this post has been removed and you can find the winner on the winner’s wall.

Better Butt(er) Cream

0

Better Butt(er) cream is just what it says it is – on your way to a better butt!  I have been on antibiotics from the dag-gum cat attack (Never shoo a cat with your foot) and Mason is getting them 2nd hand which unfortunately makes him prone to a rash.  Better Butt(er) clears up said rash within 24-hours (usually from the poo I don’t catch fast enough.  I swear it is acid!), but the BEST thing is that it mainly helps PREVENT the rash from coming with religious use.  The other BEST thing is that I can use my cloth diapers safely without fear of stain or the dreaded no longer absorbent problem most diaper creams can cause.  Here you can check out Northern Essence specials.

StoryLand Yoga DVD

0

Storyland Yoga is a fun-filled adventure that infuses children with an eco-conscious message.  Two unique stories,  “Save the Whale” and “Condor Trek” engage a child’s imagination through storytelling.  Kid’s learn yoga postures by becoming part of the story and imitating animals. Yoga is great exercise and helps to calm children giving them greater focus and increased clarity.  Storyland Yoga is equally fun for parents and family members who can benefit from yoga, while enjoying ‘organic time’ with their children.

Ages 3 – 8     Condor Trek Run Time: 23:18     Save the Whale Run Time: 18:30
Produced by Playful Planet:  ‘Empowering Kids and Their Families to Be Healthy and Live Sustainably.’Made with 100% Recycled Packaging.  You can purchase Storyland Yoga at amazon. What a trip to watch Jakobi doing Yoga.  He really got into the video and was doing the movements right along with the instructor.  I think the funniest thing was later in the day I still had to carry around my condor eggs!!  He kept telling me to be careful.  Finally, I had to put them in my pocket for safekeeping.  This DVD definitely sparks the imagination and engages the body as well.  He has even asked to watch it again.   Con:  It is certainly age appropriate and not for regular yoga users, but it is great for a 3-year-old.

Herbal filled Calming Collars are based on aromatherapy and they work, naturally! These collars help your dog (or cat) overcome stress and anxiety and just be a bit more relaxed. They help with fear of thunderstorms and bad weather, fireworks or other loud noises, and in most stressful situations like a trip to the groomer or to the vet. Calming Collars can be effective all day long. Custom made just for your pet.

My dog Fenway does not really like being home alone, so I though this would be perfect for him.  Not only can this help ease him, I love the smell.  I keep it in my clean diaper drawer to make it smell all pretty when he is not wearing it.

Instapeel

The Instantpeel Natural Exfoliant is one of the most exciting, powerful yet gentle products on the market that is polluted with goods that promise beauty heaven, but deliver just a big price tag. This peel sticks to its promises, for a fraction of the money one would spend in a beauty salon. Instantpeel is easy to use while taking a shower. it is amazing how smoothly dead skin peels off without irritating healthy skin layers. After the short treatment, the skin feels soft and silky with a radiant complexion. I highly recommend Instantpeel to every one who desires younger and healthier looking facial skin.

Mommy Necklace by Holly and Sage

0
This necklace is perfect for me.  I wear it almost every day.  Mason plays with it while he his nursing and this keeps him from pulling my hair.  Thank goodness for Holly and Sage.  It is made well with extra loops around the attachment points, and the cord is tough which is a must for little ones pulling on it.  If you check out her site she has tons of unique handmade artisan jewelery.

“This pretty stone is a soft jade green with flecks of gray-brown. It hangs simply from an ivory woven cotton cord and closes with a sterling silver lobster claw clasp.  Stone is a 40 x 30mm natural stone from Arizona; probably jasper. The cord is ivory 1mm woven cotton and 22 inches long.  Mommy necklaces can be worn by anyone, but are especially useful for mothers of young children who like to hold or grab onto things when being held. These can also be used as worry stones.” -Holly and Sage
