Review: I was asked to review this amazing medical ID bracelet. My father in law has Type 2 diabetes and also COPD, and it scares me with how sick he is that he doesn’t wear a bracelet. He takes so many medicines that if something were to happen when he’s not with family, how will strangers or paramedics know what he has or what he takes? That’s why anyone with the following medical conditions should always wear ID bracelets:
- Allergies: Food, medication, penicillin and peanut
- Heart Disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Lung Disease
- Children with special needs
- High Blood Pressure
Until I did this review I didn’t know how many illnesses and disease that should be wearing ID bracelets. I have bad asthma, but it never crossed my mind that I should be wearing one. I also know that my daughter who is allergic to Penicillin should also be wearing one.
This specific bracelet is designed for men and women and come in 3 different colors and variable sizes. The band is durable and waterproof and won’t fray from wear. The plate is engravable on the back and done in sterling silver. To purchase this bracelet: HERE

About: Diono car seats, Convertible boosters, storage solutions, stroller and travel accessories consistently earn high ratings from industry experts and families worldwide. Our product designs combine safety, convenience and style. Since our company started Diono has worked to solve the real everyday worries and hassles parents face. Our first product idea was born from a family discussion on a documentary demonstrating the consequences of improperly secured car seats in collisions. Within the year family members had created a prototype that would come to be known as Mighty-Tite® — the world’s first and only seatbelt tightener designed for ease of use and peace of mind.
Stow N Go: This is a fantastic tool to have when you have kids! Its great from toddler to teenager age. This organizer has 7 pockets, and 2 drink holders. Perfect to store tablets, crayons, books and toys. The fabric is 100% machine washable. I take a lot of trips to visit family out of the area. Its so hard for my boys when there isn’t anything to do. My 2 year old will take stuff to do and he’ll drop it on the floor, but I can’t get it for him. This way I can put this behind the seat and he get take what he wants and able to reach it himself.
Travel Pal: This system is also a good one to have. This has a bin for toys, books, tablets, crayons or snacks! There are a few pockets on the inside and outside to hold the precious things in place. The outside is 2 insulated cup holders. The whole system is waterproof and easily wiped down with a wet washcloth. I have a 13 year old and my toddler is in his car seat. This sits perfectly between the both of them with their goodies in the basket! No more messes in my car.

About: Our company started as a small, family-owned bakery 15 years ago, and not much has changed. We have welcomed new faces and helping hands over the years, but what started as a business with a father, Al Ozery, and his two sons, Alon and Guy, is still the same. Today, our father is enjoying semi-retirement and we work hard to make him proud.
Review: I have a full house and with all 3 of my kids making breakfast to satisfy everyone is well… a chore in itself. Each kid has their own special taste and I love that. Ozery offered to send me their and Snacking Rounds for my kids and family to try out. The rounds are all free of artificial preservatives, low in fat and heart healthy. The bags come with 14 fruit filled baked pitas, loaded with all kinds of vitamins and minerals. We kept them frozen until it was time to thaw and eat or they were ready to try a new flavor. Who wouldn’t want to serve these up for breakfast or a snack in their lunch box?
The first one they tried was the Apple Cinnamon. Which had chunks of real apple inside. 3My 2 older kids loved them… my 2 year old is extremely picky and literally won’t try anything new, and he even loved them! The other flavor my kids really liked was the Cranberry Orange; even the picky toddler! My kids didn’t get to try the Muesli ones yet but they are full of grains, apples, flax seeds, sunflower seeds and raisins. They sound delicious and if they are as any good as the other 2 flavors, my family will be happy. I can’t wait to see what other healthy snack Ozery Bakery can come up.
They come with a allergen warning: Contain wheat and may contain sesame seeds.

My name is Crystal Gregg. I am 29 years old and have a beautiful son turning 3 on October 6. I named him Raine after the lead singer of the Canadian band, Our Lady Peace, Raine Maida. If you have never heard of them before I suggest you go buy my favorite album by them called Clumsy. So good. I listen to all kinds of music especially punk rock and golden oldies. I even love listening to Miley Cyrus(don’t judge me.) I used to travel a lot going to shows all the time before I became a mom. I decided to stay at home with him instead of paying someone else that I don’t trust to raise my son for me. I never had a meaningful career that would justify me working after I had him.
I was born and raised in southern West Virginia. It gets awfully boring here at times, but it is forever beautiful in these mountains. I became a vegetarian at the age of 14 and decided to finally become vegan after my son was born. He became vegan also after a few months of misery having to drink formula with dairy in it. He has been happy and healthy ever since then. I decided to raise my son how I wished my parents had raised me.. Open minded and free. I try to give him everything I never had. Do you know any toddlers who love tofu, beans and every kind of fruit out there? His daddy is 6’5″ and I am 5’10″ so hes going to end up being a giant.
I am drawing a blank trying to talk about myself now. My life has become my son.. not that that is a bad thing.
I hope to share some of our favorite vegan recipes with the readers soon. We LOVE to eat!
