Have Mat will Yoga




I have several yoga mats some thinner then this one made my Itechor and some that are thicker. This one is great because it comes with both a yoga mat strap and a yoga mat bag.

The included yoga mat bag is a much needed added bonus. The mat has bumpy surface on one side and smooth surface on the other. I happen to like to the bumpy surface on top for my yoga time.

The color of this mat stands out against my other mats so that I know which one I want to use on different surfaces around our home. I would love in the future to be able to actually go to a yoga class but until then it is just me and my girls.

This mat has a medium thickness which is very comfortable. Easy to roll up and attach strap or put in bag. Perfect for yoga away from home.

Lighten those Scars



Stretch marks and scars are apart of many people lives including mine. We don't have to let them keep us from doing what we want to do, but for those who would like to lesson the marks left behind there are products like those from Bonapiel.

This is light whipped cream that sinks into the skin very quickly.

Organizing is just a label away



When chalk labels and chalk markers first came out I didn't rush out to buy them because I wanted to see them in use by others before I put out money buying any.

Well now that I have seen and I have used them on many surfaces I am in love with them. I really love this set from Sacar Stationary because it has so many labels including large sheets that can be used as is or cut into any shape you wish.

Great for organizing, decorating, crafting, or gift giving. Easy to stick. Can be used with chalk or chalk markers. With 14 different designs and 120 stickers you will be set for awhile.

Comfortable Mattress Protector at an Affordable Price


This product is available at an awesome price and is well worth the price you pay to protect your expensive mattresses.

I know we wish we had put one on ours years ago. A few little ones later, several moves, and lots of accidents, vomiting, and spills later we are ready for a new mattress and this time we are prepared to keep it protected as long as we can.

I have seen other mattress protectors that cost way more then this and don't do half of what this one will do. For a bargain price you can pick up one for each of your mattresses and protect those mattresses so they last longer.

I love the feel of the protector, not plastic but Terry which is much more comfortable and doesn't make that crinkly noise when you are sleeping like the plastic covers do. I am very happy with this and would suggest anyone looking to check this one out before settling on another.

The Mellanni Mattress Protector can be found on Amazon.

ZIPIT Talking Monstar

We try to make school as fun as possible and one way we do that is by letting our children pick a few fun items out to make their days just a bit brighter when they are at school. The ZIPIT Products not only do that for the kids, but as adults we love them too.

Awesome colors that scream play with me, and they all have their own attitude which makes them super cute. We have several of the ZIPIT products and I just ordered a few more for my daughter for next school year.

When you see something fun like this you have to jump on it quick before they sell out and I see these going quickly. I love that they have a warranty. How many school products do that? Maybe a handful.

These talking ZIPIT pouches are neat and easy to get going by downloading the app  which you can find on their site and on the product itself. The best part is you don't have to be a kid to enjoy these. Bring a little fun back into your day by grabbing some of these.

Who couldn't smile when they open their desk and pull out a pen from one of these pouches. I don't think many could, I know I certainly can't. I go so far to make up voices and whole attitudes based on their expressions. Don't forget the monster noises we can't forget those. Keep it fun and stay young at heart as long as you can.

The Zipit Monstar pencil pouches and other products can be found here.

Copper Bottomed Tea Kettle





We have had a few tea kettles over our lives but I have to say this is the best one we have had yet. I love how heavy this is due to the copper bottom.

I have seen others say they have a copper bottom and they really just have what looks like copper paint on the bottom. This is actually a copper plate on the bottom.

This tea kettle holds enough water for everyone to have hot cocoa, tea, or even for my husband to boil water for his French Press Coffee Maker.

I love the handle and I love yes love again the trigger for the water spout. This is perfect for our families needs and looks great in our kitchen as well. I think I would be hard pressed to find a better kettle.

The Chef's Secret Tea Kettle can be found on Amazon.

Dinosaurs roaring to play




Even though it is just the girls at home now they like to play with dinosaurs too. My sons would have loved these when they were little.

My grand-daughter even loves dinosaurs. Especially the kind she can carry around and play with.

These dinosaurs are large but not so oversized that you can't take them with you to play with.
These dinosaurs are ready to play with right out of the box and in my 12 piece set I didn't have any doubles which I am pretty sure is for every box.

These are great for gifts, birthday party loot bags, treasure boxes. or even for sale in your store. I myself loved all of the different dinosaurs that were included. This would be a great present for any dinosaur lover.
