Anne Geddes Padded Board Books and 1st Year Baby Journal Review




About (taken from Bio on website) : One of the world’s most respected and well-known photographers, Anne Geddes creates images that are iconic, award winning and beloved. Like no photographer before, her imagery singularly captures the beauty, purity and vulnerability of children embodying her deeply held belief that each and every child must be protected, nurtured and loved.

Review: I was approached recently to do a review for baby books from Anne Geddes collection. I am 6 months pregnant with a girl so I jumped on this opportunity knowing these would be a great start to her book collection. I received 2 padded books and a 1st year journal.


My First Year: A Baby Journal: This is a really interesting book. I had baby books with all my kids and this one is different than the others.  There was always so many things to remember to write down and I’m sure just like me you all forgot to fill it out… shame on me. The pages are simple and only a few things to remember to fill out. Mostly the important stuff the doctor does at the visits; height and weight. And also what was learned throughout the month. Each page shows an adorable portrait of a new baby.


Padded Board Books: These books are absolutely adorable. I think I enjoyed looking at the pictures of all the cute little babies more than anything. Each one has a cute little sentence that goes along with each colorful picture. Each book has its own little story; Lullaby & Goodnight and This Little Baby.

These books are great to add to any little girls book collection. I would love to get these books for a baby shower gift to save for my baby as I have been following Anne Geddes work for many years.

Giveaway for 2 Anne Geddes Padded Board Book and Baby’s First Year Journal. Giveaway will run 10/23-10/30 to US residents only. Good Luck!

2015 Guinness Book of World Records

download (2)

About: Guinness World Records is the official reference, and ultimate authority, for world records. Distributed in more than 100 countries and translated into 20 languages, the Guinness World Records annual is one of the best-selling books of all time! We aim to inspire ordinary people to do extra-ordinary things. Our mission is to entertain and inform, and to celebrate the world’s best.


Review: My kids are absolutely fascinated with these books. So much that we even watch the show! This year Guinness World Records is celebrating 60 years (1955-2015). The book for the 2015 year is also a special edition! Download the app for free to “watch” the book in 3D!! Available in Google Play and Itunes.


Inside the book you will find thousands of new and updated records and hundreds of new photographs. The books is full of neat and interesting facts and so much color.


My kids all had their favorite sections: My 17 year old daughter loved the Diamonds. There is a small section at the bottom to teach you the anatomy of the diamond. And of course interesting facts on the diamond and records set including diamonds. What girl wouldn’t be attracted to this!?

My son who is 14 was attracted to the whole entire book, but favored the sports records. He said it was interesting to see so many different records in combat sports. He is a wrestler so this was fun for him. He did say that there wasn’t enough recreational wrestling records… maybe he will have to place one!

And finally my youngest who is about to turn 3. Of the entire book to look at he kept circling back to the “Extreme Bodies” category. He was super fascinated by the tallest men. The record for the tallest man ever was measured at 8 feet 11 inches.

Guinness Book of World Records will make a fantastic Christmas gift for anyone big or tall.

Justin’s Nut Butter & Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Review

Here is a little thing I have learned over the years: Dark chocolate and peanut butter go perfectly together.

Even vegans/vegetarians can enjoy delicious snacks thanks to Justin’s



This generous company sent me some great coupons to try out their products. My favorite is the dark chocolate peanut butter cups..even my 3 year old son knows that. ;) Almost every grocery shopping trip to Kroger results in a new stash of these bad boys. I love catching them on sale 10 for $10. My second favorite Justin’s product is their chocolate almond butter then their chocolate hazelnut butter(dairy free. yay!) Healthy snacks are by far the best kind!


I also want to share Justin’s mission statement with you and encourage you to check out their website www.justins.com.

Making the foods we love extraordinary, with an uncompromised spirit of innovation, sustainability and community.

Our products are made with common sense. A sense that cooking in small batches ensures higher quality. That selectively choosing fine, all-natural ingredients will make it taste better. And that no matter their size, companies should always be grateful to their customers, employees and community.”


leafTimeline1 Love companies that go green: “Since we started putting nut butters into squeeze packs in 2006, we have been actively searching for more sustainable packaging. Our goal is to solve two unintended consequences of having a nut butter squeeze pack: non-renewable packaging and landfill waste. As of today, the technology does not exists to create a fully sustainable squeeze pack film that is also compostable for gels, oils and nut butters -and it’s crazy that no one really seems to care. With your help spreading awareness, we can create a revolution to change industry and force technology to catch up with the times.”
