MIRA Stainless Steel Snack Box Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Cheap skate confession time! When I use plastic baggies I clean them out when I'm done and reuse them. Maybe that's not too weird? I have been looking for something durable, safe and portable to put my 1st graders snacks in for lunch. It was perfect timing that I was offered to review MIRA
 stainless steel lunch box containers! These are just awesome! The perfect size for a snack, very durable, easy to clean, eco friendly and safe! They are BPA, phthalate, PVC and lead free.
Featuring non-toxic kid-friendly easy-snap secure lids, Free of BPA, phthalates, PVC and lead.
The lids are durable, easy to snap and come in great colors. The containers are great to stash in your purse or car. Take them anywhere and know that you are keeping the environment clean and keeping more chemicals away from your kids.

Scotts Organic Choice

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Organic Choice for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

    Spring is coming!! Little signs of life are starting to pop up in my yard and I'm getting the itch to start gardening. This year I am going to plant a bigger variety of vegetables. I am thinking tomatoes, cucumbers, melons, beans and lettuces. I want an all organic garden and that starts with organic soil. The brand I'm going to use this year is Scotts  Organic Choice garden soil. Organic Choice is made from natural and organic ingredients and has a continuous feed for up to 2 months. One of the most important things when creating a garden is to have the right soil.  Having nutrient rich soil will give you a bounty of produce and will be less work. Starting with an organic soil, free of chemicals and pesticides is the best way to ensure your produce is more nutritious and healthier.

    A great idean when planing a garden is to spread things out and intersperse plants. This will slow down insects and the spread of disease. One thing I found last year with my garden is that spiders like them and I hate spiders. The can actually be beneficial by eating insects that will eat your plants. So the best way to keep spiders out is to keep other bugs out. If there's nothing for them to eat they won't stick around! A lot of herbs will repel insects. Just a few that work are basil, catnip and citronella grass. I'm going to try it out this year and I'll let you know how it goes!

    The first thing I will make with my garden produce will be a cucumber and tomatoe salad with basil. Nothing beats a fresh garden tomatoe! I so can not wait to garden and especially when it starts growing and can be picked.

Sammy Dress - Fun and Affordable

I am reviewing a product from the huge and insanely affordable Sammy Dress. This online shop has literally thousands of crazy cheap clothes, shoes, jewelry and more! I ordered this music and light clock for my son to have in his room. It was a great price at $8 and it works really well. My son loves it. The stars look great at night on the ceiling and it plays some very nice, soothing music. I do wish it had a volume control though as it was a bit too loud for going to sleep. 

There are tons of trendy clothes and shoes to choose from. I love this sweater and it's only $11.95!

So if you are looking for some really cheap clothes or anything else check out Sammy Dress!

CHD Awareness

A little over 1 year ago my little Alex had his 2nd open heart surgery. He was a total champ and was out of the hospital in 5 days. We are enjoying the in between time right now of not needing to have any surgeries for at least another year. I just try to put it out of my mind. Except for the monthly Synagis shots (yuck!) and having a few blue episodes when he's cold, I forget that only half his heart works. February is Heart month and for as common as CHD's are they sure don't get much attention. I think they need to hire some big time PR firm or something. I'm not saying other diseases don't deserve attention and money, of course they do. I would just like more awareness and a LOT more money for CHD research. It is so sadly underfunded.
So this week wear some red, wear some hearts. Not for Valentines day but for someones broken heart and spread the word!

Purex Crystals Fresh Mountain Breeze Review and Giveaway

I got to try the new Purex Fresh Mountain Breeze Crystals. The crystals are easy to use. You just sprinkle them on your laundry when it's in the washing machine. It keeps clothes smelling fresh for weeks! The Natural formula they use is safe for your family and for the environment and it doesn't reduce the absorbancy of towels. I love the mountain breeze scent. It's a soft scent and not too overpowering. It did leave my clothes smelling so nice and fresh! I especially love this scent with my towels. The scent really does stay with your clothes for a long time which I love.

Holistic Baby Acupressure System & Giveaway

I am reviewing the Holistic Baby Acupressure System. This was a fun review for me to do! I went to massage school years ago and learned acupressure. It's a great, easy and cheap way to support your health. My 16 month old was having trouble sleeping so I was very excited to try this protocol on him. 

First I must say that it was not easy to do any of the points on my uncooperative baby. The book does provide some helpful hints to work with a wiggling baby. I tried the different methods and did my best to massage the points as long as I could. Even though I wasn't doing it perfectly I could tell it was working. He started going down for naps easier and for longer. He has also not woken up at night in a while! I have also started the constipation combination In hopes that it will help. 

This is a great product to try and it's easy for anyone to use. It comes with a Manual and DVD. You can also use these points on anyone not just babies!
