The Nutcracker Music Game for children: Review

 

So I had the opportunity to review a fun and exciting musical game for kids, The Nutcracker Music Game for Children. This has been by far one of the best games for kids to understand the basic concepts of music. This is a fun way for your children to explore music by challenging your kids through interactive participation and exciting game play.
My mom is a preschool teacher whom loves to have the proper teaching tools in her class. She had her 4-5 year old preschoolers play with this fun game and they loved it. Not only was it entertaining for them, but very useful for the kids to learn what sounds different instruments make. It put their musical ears to the test in a fun way.
I would recommend this interactive game to anyone who has children. One tip I told my sister the other day was that on the weekends kids tend to watch television all day and since they are preschoolers they don't have any homework. I mentioned this to her and convinced my sister to have my little niece play this game on the weekends to keep her from watching television and playing a game that actually is teaching her something. It seemed to work out for her and my niece.

Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops Review


This Fall, I definitely plan on stocking up on some good cough drops to beat those colds. Knowing how sensitive I can be to the cold (not my favorite) I really need a trusting, tasty and affordable remedy! I am a Nurse who wakes up at 4:45 A.M. 4 to 5 times a week. I walk outside and around that time that I do it's freezing cold. I noticed that I was coughing a lot so I took quick action and took a Pine Bros. throat drop in honey flavor. First thing I noticed was the soft texture it had in your mouth so it didn't melt as quick as other drops would. After a while it numbed my throat enough that I wasn't coughing anymore. Ding ding ding, winner winner! I feel in love with the drops immediately  I think this would be a great item to keep in my purse at all times!
This amazing product is available at CVS/Pharmacy for $3.49 either in a puck or in a bag. I keep the puck in my purse because its more convenient for me. Especially in my scrub pockets. When I don't have the time to run back into my purse I can just reach into my pocket! HELLO!
You can also friend Pine Bros on facebook HERE and get the latest news! And follow them on their twitter page HERE and read about their latest tweets!

Bows-N-Ties Review.


My dad never wears ties unless there's a special occasion going on. But when I showed him the Cavallieri tie he fell in love with it. I tried it on him and right of way he wanted to keep it.

Even an interview. It is so easy to put on that it was even easy for me to put on as well. These ties range price from $50-$60 dollars a tie. BUT Bows-N-Ties offers them for only $24.90.

True-to-life fragrances into your home with the Glade Expressions Collection #bzzagent




The way our homes smells when you first walk in should be yours and everyone else who walks in through those doors, first impression. Of course you want everyone to say, "What smells so good?" and right away you will know what ever it is, you have a winner!  Step into the world of authentic fragrances that will totally satisfy all of your senses at once. Introducing the all new Glade Expressions Collections. Once again a winner product in my book.

Glade Expression Collection offers four amazing fragrances:

Cotton & Italian Mandarin- Breezy blend of cotton & sparkling citrus, honeydew & sandlewood.

Pineapple & Mangosteen- Blend of freshly cut pineapples a hint of mangosteen, creamy coconut and passionflower.

Lavender & Juniper Berry- Lush lavender blends with fresh juniper berry, eucalyptus and rose.

Fuji Apple & Cardamom Spice- A ripe, spicy blend of sweet pears and crisp apple with cinnamon and clove.
 This amazing Glade collection comes both in a Fragrance Mist and an Oil Diffuser. Want to know the best part of this product, refills are available for both too! Which means you won't have to keep re-buying the same product over and over. Just buy the refills. My opinion about refills is that it's the best money saver in our family hands down.

I decided to grab the Pineapple & Mangosteen smell. I loved it. I am a huge fan of fruity and tropical scents so this product won me over. I placed the diffuser in my living room and the spray on my table. I appreciate the fact that this doesn't require batteries at all. Before this product we had candles and other electrical products around the house. I was always on the look out for my niece who loves to grab and pull on things. And of course safety always comes first in my home. But with this product I don't have to worry about that anymore and I am enjoying evey minute of it. Overall, I think this is my favorite Glade item!

Lickety Stick Review


This morning I recieved my free sample of the Lickety Stick. This was a sample giveaway on Facebook from last month. It's a lickable dog treat in the liver flavor. I tried giving my Yorkie a lick to see if he would like it, but it failed. He sniffed it and walked away. He's one of my picky babies! So, I gave it another try with our family dog, Ecko. He's a Pitbull. He loved it and I kind of figured he would. Ecko is a friendly eater who will eat anything. Very appreciative of everything too. I had to teach him that it wasn't a toy because he wanted to take it and bite it up. But it didn't take too long for him to understand how the Lickety Stick worked. In the package also came a nice coupon for $1.00 off. I'm not sure how much these are priced at since I've never seen them or haven't seen the yet. However, on their website prices start at $3.99. But I will be out on the lookout to grab some more for Ecko. I also hope they carry different flavors to see if Diamond my Yorkie will like any. I think this stick is very convienent, smart treat and best of all it doesn't take up any space what so ever. I liked it a lot. If you would like to read more about them you can visit their website HERE.

Alteril Liquid Sleep Shot Review



This week if you went shopping to Walgreen's you would have noticed the Alteril Sleep Shot on sale and it came along with an RR. Well, I went yesterday to do my weekly shopping with my mom and I got this product to complete my coupon shopping. As we were walking down the aisle looking for it my mom asked what I needed it for. I told her its part of my weekly coupon shopping. It'll come in handy one day I'm sure. Well it did!! Last night my mom decided to try it out because she was having sleeping problems which I didn't know about. I told her oh there you go, I knew it would come in handy soon! She took half of the shot at around 9pm at night. She took her shower watched TV as usual and by 9:30 pm she was in bed. What a miracle.
This morning I asked her how she felt and what her experience was like after the sleeping shot. She said she felt fine, woke up normal as always and enjoyed her sleep. I also asked her if she would try it again for a second night. Of course my mother said yes. That's when I realized OK, this product works. I got mine in Lemon Tea Flavor and only noticed that flavor available. Note this is only for adults 18 years and over.
Even though sometimes when you coupon shop for items like the Alteril Sleep Shot and you know you won't be needing it for yourself, there's always someone in the family who will need it. Trust me! I came into getting this for the RR at Walgreen's and that same night my mom ended up using it.
In conclusion, this review was 100% successful. Alteril Sleep Shot works and I also forgot to mention my mom didn't feel any side affects what so ever. But results may differ in everyone. If you would like to read more about the product feel free to visit their website Here,

Tiger Balm: Neck & Shoulder Rub

I recently have been loving the new Tiger Balm Neck & Shoulder rub. I'll tell you why. I'm an everyday jogger. I've been jogging everyday as part of my daily exercise and of course physical fitness. I've always had an issue with my body becoming weak and sore while running. I couldn't find anything to help my soreness or weakness so I thought to myself the other day I have to try some product. I went to the store with an open mind about which product I wanted to use. I came across the Tiger Balm. You get what you pay for right? So, I bought it. I started using it about 2 days ago. And it came to my surprise that this was actually working out for me. My soreness wasn't giving me any pain anymore. I was able to run without having to stop in between. It was like a miracle almost. I then used it again the next day which was yesterday, Monday. Again, same feeling no stressed muscles. I started to think to myself, all this time I was suffering when I didn't need to. Why didn't I think of this sooner? I'm telling you, this product has made my life a lot easier. It was worth my time, money and I was glad I went out with an open mind about this. And it's not only for people who go for daily runs. This product is for anyone with pain, stressed and strained muscles. Tiger Balm also carries different products. You can check out their website here ---> TIGER BALM. They also have an awesome giveaway going on right now that I myself am entering.!! In conclusion to all of this, I'm so happy Tiger Balm has this product out.

Groceries: Store brand vs Name brand

Many of you have obviously read about people comparing store brand groceries with name brand right? I know I have lately. The other day I was at Target browsing through the dry grocery section. I noticed a couple of things that really caught my attention. The price of course and the ingredients. I first compared my most favorite, whole wheat bread with the name brand bread. Same whole wheat, same ingredients, same size, look but two totally different prices. Target brand was only $1.19 when this other name brand was priced at a crazy $3.49. For some people 3 bucks isn't much but really, who needs to spend those 3 bucks and some change on whole wheat bread with the same ingredients as the 1 dollar whole wheat bread?? I don't get it. Honest opinion and I know many others will agree but really who cares what name brand you're eating at home? Really!! I know when it comes down to cooking pasta is pasta no matter what brand it is. What matters is how much I'm spending and how much of those savings I'm saving I can use for a trip later on or use it for something else. That's how I think of it. The more I save on groceries the better chances of spending that money I didn't spend on a name brand to take a trip somewhere! So the next time you're grocery shopping ask yourself, "Who cares what name brand I'm eating," or tell yourself this, "If I pay $1.19 for this loaf of bread vs this other name brand for $3.49 perhaps I can use the $2.30 I saved to buy my daughter those crayons PLUS a coloring book that she has been wanting!" How about that one huh! =) Think about it!

What's for dinner....

So these past few weeks, I have been thinking out of the box when it came down to cooking dinner for my family. I had gone to Walmart on Monday to buy some groceries just to have in case my outside thinking decided to use any of it. One of the things I bought was chili beans with meat valued at $0.86 cents and Great Value hot dog buns priced at just under $1.00. I kind of figured I would make that for dinner sometime this week and of course today was the day!. At just $1.86 I made these delicious chili hot dog meals for dinner. All I added was turkey weiners I bought yesterday at Fresh & Easy and sliced them up into thin slices. Let me tell you it came out better than I expected for a dinner meal. It was less messy than having the entire weiner in the bun then putting the chili beans on top. An 8pk of hotdog buns was just about enough for my family. Because even with one hotdog eveyone was full and I was happy! Let's see what this big brain of mine cooks for tomorrow!

Andis EasyClip Qucik Style Pet Clipper Kit For Dogs Review

So I realized that grooming my Yorkie was getting a little too expensive. Taking him to PetSmart was costing me up to $80.00 a month that's $960.00 a year. It was just getting ridiculous so I had to think of an alternate. I then decided to look for a pet clipper. Of course I had to invest in one if I wanted good results. I went to PetCo and looked around for something worth my moneys worth and a great price as well. I came across Andis Pet Clipper. It wasn't the cheapest nor expensive. It was a 10 piece kit as shown in the picture I have posted on here. Store price was about $38.99, not bad I thought.


 The same day I gave the clipper a try. I didn't know what I was getting myself into not knowing how to groom my own dog. I felt lost for a second so I looked inside the box and I found myself a nice instructions sheet. Didn't give me a step by step on how to groom my dog but I still gave it a try. The ending results, an ALRIGHT job for a first timer. The clipper cuts really good. It's not as loud as other clippers out there that I've see or came across. I thought to myself perhaps the second time around I'll do a better job. Second time around came yesterday afternoon. My Yorkie needed a haircut so I took out my clipper and went for it. To my surprise I did a better job this time around than the first time. The clipper got easier for me to handle and use. My dog looks happier and less hairy.

My experience with the Andis EasyClip Clipper was a 10/10. It's easy to use. Everything fits in the bag it comes with. The cord is long enough and of course easy to handle. My decision to cut my own dogs hair will save me $960.00 a year. And all it took for me to save that amount of money was buying the Andis EasyClip Clipper for $38.99. I am so glad that I am able to do this not only for myself but for my dog too. If you are looking into buying a clipper for your dog PetCo has a great online deal for the same Andis EasyClip Clipper. Just go to this link HERE and save 20% on the clipper. Also, Andis has their own website HERE. You won't regret it coming from an individual who owns one herself. I'm surprised it would have been cheaper for me to buy it online than at the store itself. But it's ok, I love this clipper.!
