2 Lip Balm Set with Bonus Bag
Give your little one the gift of these Incredible 2 lip balms! They have ball toppers on them, each with a special character inside. This set includes 3 lip balms with ball tops and a bonus bag. The characters inside the balls include Dash, Mr. Incredible, and Elastigirl. The lip balm flavors and colors are purple- grape, pink- strawberry, and red- cherry.
My little girl was so excited to get these in the mail, that she didn’t even want me to take pictures or review them before she was trying to tear into them and run off to the bathroom mirror with them. I just took my son to see the movie and because he enjoyed it he asked if he could have one of the lip balms that had Mr. Incredibles or Dash on it. I figured that was ok as long as his sister was ok with sharing.

My family loves Sparkling Ice so much and we all have our favorite favors. My husband doesn’t drink soda so we keep his favorite in the house the most and I tend to buy it in bulk. His favorite is the Cherry Limeade, he said it tastes really close to Sonics drink. They reached out for me to review a few flavors and a recipe. Below are 3 flavors:
Coconut Pineapple: The flavors of coconut and pineapple makes you feel like your drinking a fruity drink on the beach.
Grape Raspberry: This drink is grape mixed with a taste of raspberry. This is my favorite flavor- I LOVE grape!
Orange Mango: A delicious combination of orange and mango. I’m not really a fan of mango but this was really tastes good! Mango doesn’t overpower the orange flavor at all.
I made this recipe (and photo) provided by Sparkling Ice, but for my kids I made it virgine, just omitting the vodka.
2 cups vodka
½ cup lime juice
3 cups pineapple juice
1 tablespoon ground nutmeg
1 orange, sliced
1 blood orange, sliced
1 lemon, sliced
Pour the vodka, lime juice, pineapple juice, Sparkling Ice Orange Mango, and nutmeg in a large punch bowl. Toss in orange, blood orange, lemon slices and stir. Fill glasses with a ladle, garnish with fresh pineapple.

Bubble Wrap was invented in 1957 to help keep products safe during shipping and moving. They are made by blowing air into bubbles which cushion fragile items. Bubble Wrap comes in many shapes and sizes and even colors now! The Bubble Wrap brand is trademarked but yet a general term for the product.
Bubble Pop has recently joined the packaging industry; bringing together wrapping paper and bubble wrap. Currently available in 5 colors and shapes also seasonal designs. I received 4 of them for review; polka dots, chevron, triangles and marble. What separates Bubble Pop from the rest is that every 12″ it’s perforated for easy tear. Whether you are using your Bubble Pop for shipping they are the perfect size.
Ideas to Use Bubble Pop
Wrapping Fragile and Delicates While Moving- Heck or even when your shopping. Most stores only wrap things that your buying in several layers of paper or even in a few paper bags. I’d feel safer if my glasswear was better protected.
Crafts: Use the bubble as the paint brushes to put an awesome and unique design on your artwork.
STRAIGHT UP POPPING THEM!!! Its been proven that popping the bubbles are relaxing and will relieve stress. If you have a college student- send him/her a roll around term week and let the popping begin.
I even saw that re-using it on your windows during the winter to save on your heating bills and keep the cold out.
Lastly, did you know that popping bubble wrap can actually strengthen a kids motor skills?
About (taken from Facebook page): Bubble Pop is a fun and exciting take on traditional wrapping paper combined with bubble wrap. Five different design categories with multiple colorways and seasonal designs, Bubble Pop will change the way you wrap and ship!
