Happy Halloween





Halloween Candy Stash: 1 full pound of the best Halloween candy around! Stashed away in an adorable yet spooky container, this gift box is full to the brim with candies and chocolates such as tootsie rolls, m &ms, twix, Laffy Taffy, Almond Joy, Reese Peanut Butter Cups, Kit Kats and more!! It didn’t take long for my kids to empty this box of favorites out!

Spooky Eyes Halloween Gift Tower: This tower is GREAT, and 4 boxes of all kinds of awesome-ness! Once enjoyed all 4 boxes nest inside each other for easy storing for next Halloween! The large bottom box has 2 bags of pop corn from King of Pop; confetti and buffalo flavored (which didn’t last long as my boys ate both bags). The next box up is candy such as Skittles, Laffy Taffy, Starburst, Tootsie Rolls, Gobstoppers, and Nerds. Next box up is the delicious candy that mom and dad don’t want to share- Almond Joy, Hershey’s bars, Kit Kat, Snickers, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Whoppers, Twix, and M & Ms. The smallest box on top had my oldest son very happy! It had a lot of his favorite candies such as Smarties, Tootsie Rolls, Jaw Busters, Super Bubble Gum, and Fire Balls.


Witch’s Kitchen Brownie Gift Box: This has been my husbands favorite gift box, he is a brownie man. Individually wrapped for freshness, there is 12 brownies in this cute box. 6 different flavors such as; Fudge Walnut, Chocolate Chunk, Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chip Blondies , Butterscotch Blondies, White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Blondies. We had a blast trying them out, and they were all delicious. I was a little disappointed that they were not marked as to which flavor each one was.

Save Space with the Pop & Load Laundry Basket

Pop & Load Laundry Basket




In my house, there’s a lot of laundry to do between the six people we have so we have to have an unusual amount of laundry baskets everywhere. When we found out about the Vanderbilt Pop & Load Collapsible Laundry Basket, we knew it was the perfect solution to taking up less space with our baskets. They collapse to be about 3 inches wide and will fit snug between my washing machine and the wall next to it. We usually only have to use three laundry baskets for each load of clothes so we can send one basket to each bedroom with the clothes that need to be put away in that room.


When we got the laundry basket, my kids would always argue over who got to play in it and sit in it. My daughter loves to sit in it with her toys and watch tv. It is so easy to store and I am planning on sending a few with my daughter next year when she goes off to college again. She can put her stuff in the baskets to bring them to school and then once she’s done with them, she’ll be able to collapse them and store them under her bed so there is more room around for her to put everything else up. The baskets come in two colors, white and aqua. The white one you can get online or in stores but the aqua one you can only get at Bed Bath & Beyond. We absolutely love this basket and they aren’t that expensive so we know we will be investing in more!

Keep Your Littles Fresh With Fresh Monster

Fresh Monster




NO: Sulfates, Parabens, Phthalates, Dyes or Synthetic Fragrances

I am finally at the point in my life where I no longer have to buy baby wash and shampoos! And boy does it feel great. I’m not ready to wash my littles hair and body with grown up stuff but I will buy the kids stuff, the “in between.” Now that I’ve been looking for the best brands for kids showers. Looking around, I found Fresh Monster. The name of the brand really stood out to me but that’s not what sold it for me.


There are five products from this company and we gladly got to try them all! There are three different Shampoo & Conditioner two in ones that we got to try in three different scents; Coconut, watermelon, and fragrance free. My youngest daughter loves the smell of the watermelon one so every time she takes a bath, she makes sure I use that one. That left the other two for my youngest boy and though he does like the smell of the coconut one, he thought he would smell “like a girl” if he used it so he went for the fragrance free. I use the Shampoo & Body Spray on both of the kids because it is a pretty gender neutral smell and it makes them smell so good afterward. With the detangler, I use it on my daughter because of her little curls, it makes the comb go through her hair a lot easier. I absolutely love how it works on the kids and they’re so affordable that I can either stock up on them or it will be easy to get them when I need them. I highly recommend these for any kids.

About taken from website:

Fresh Monster is many things. It’s a little irreverent, a lot of fun, and 100% toxin-free. We all want the best for our children, especially when it comes to what goes into and onto their little bodies. But when it comes to hair and body care for kids, the aisles are full of unsafe ingredients, or expensive products beyond the means of most people. We’ve been looking for a safe, affordable, kid-focused brand…and we couldn’t find one. Why? Because small home-grown operations typically don’t have the expertise or scale. Big corporations don’t have the insight or the focus on truly toxin-free products. Fresh Monster merges the best of both worlds.

SnapPower Outlet Covers

SnapPower Outlet Covers




In our house, we like to have all of our lights off at night. My youngest son is afraid of the dark and so in the middle of the night, he gets scared when he has to walk to the bathroom. To help with this, we’ve left our bathroom light on but this makes our electric bill fly through the roof. With the SnapPower Guidelight, we can change all of the outlets leading from his bedroom to the bathroom to them for a very affordable price.


The second product we got to review was the SnapPower Charger. My kids love to charge their phones next to their beds while they sleep. This causes a problem because their charger bases are so big, they have to move their mattresses away from the wall which makes their pillows and other things they have on their beds fall next to the wall. When it falls, it most of the time unplugs their phones and in the morning, they get mad because their phone is at 20%. with the SnapPower Charger, their mattress can be pushed right up against the wall and their phone will still charge. These are so easy to install and they are very affordable. I know we will be looking for other products this company will come up with in the future.
