Planner with Calendar Review

Hello! How is everyone? Do you like to keep your life organized? If so, I have the perfect planner for you :)
This planner by Tools4Wisdom is designed especially for Bloggers! But don't fret, I believe that this planner is good for anyone and everyone.

My Thoughts

This is my go to planner. It has everything required to keep you scheduled and goal oriented. Instead of having several planners, keep everything organized in one. Like doctors appointments, goals, class schedule, your child's soccer practice, blog posts, etc.

The month starts off with a page for you to put all of your goals for the month. The next two pages contain a full calendar. With a big writing spot for each day. At the bottom of both of these pages, there is a place for you to write down all of your notes and ideas. Then, the rest of the pages, for that month, have time slots for appointments. Starting at 5 am and goes all the way to 9pm. For every day. At the end of that month, there is a page titled Monthly Priorities Masterlist. A place where you can list your top priorities and high values. You have all of these features for each month.

At the very end of the planner, there is a Notes Journal. Where you can keep even more of your thoughts and goals :)

This planner would make a perfect Christmas gift. Or even birthday gift!

Size- 8.5x11

Aveeno Natural Protection Sunscreen Face Stick for Baby Review

Happy Thursday! Who is excited for the weekend? I know I am! Today, on the blog, I share with you Aveeno's Natural Protection Sunscreen Face Stick for Baby. Read below for all the deets :)
Aveeno has made it much easier for us to apply sunscreen to our squirming babies. Their body, arms and legs are pretty easy to apply sunscreen to, but they like to give us trouble when applying sunscreen to their faces. With this Face Stick, its a lot easier  to apply on the neck and ears as well. Your baby will be protected with an SPF of 50. The sunscreen is sweat proof and water proof for up to 80 minutes!

The sunscreen is great for sensitive skin. It's fragrance free and contains soothing oats. 100% of its sunscreen ingredients are naturally sourced. The sunscreen is hypoallergenic and oil-free!
Directions for use:
Apply generously and evenly 15 minutes before sun exposure. Ensure complete coverage to the area above the lip, nose and tops of ears. Reapply after 80 minutes of swimming, sweating and/or immediately after towel drying.
*Should NOT be used on babies under 6 months of age.
My Thoughts
My family and I went to Monster Jams over the weekend. It was super hot and there wasn't any cloud coverage. We were outside for about 2 hours and I was so worried that my 6 1/2 month old would get a bad sunburn. Well, from using this sunscreen, he did not get one bit of sunscreen anywhere on his body! Me applying it every 45 minutes probably helped too. I would totally recommend this product to anyone! I'd say, put it in a baby shower gift basket. It's never too early to teach your kids the importance of skin care. I love it so much that I use this sunscreen stick on my face as well. Using sunscreen in stick form also keeps the oil and germs that are on your hands, off your face. It's gentle enough for any skin type :) Aveeno products are truly awesome :)

iPad Mini Case Review

Hey, all! I am sharing with you today, an iPad Mini Case by VanDay!
 This case is ultra-thin. You can choose from 18 different cover designs. The case is complete with cut outs for the speaker, camera, charging port and headphone port. Putting a case on your iPad Mini is good for preventing scratches, cracked screens and spills. Fits iPad Mini 1,2 and 3!

My Thoughts

This case is so cute! It's perfect for children. Most of VanDay's designs are kids designs. But, I used it, I don't care :) putting my iPad mini into the case was super easy. It locked right into place. I tested to see how easy It would be to take the case off. It was a little difficult. Which, in  my eyes, is a good thing. :) The cover was stiff at first, so it was hard for me to fold it into a stand. But, with a little stretching, it folded into a stand in seconds. The stand stays put and it keeps the iPad from falling over. I'd recommend this product.

Snuggwugg- The Interactive Pillow Review

Hey there sunshine! Today, I share with you an awesome product designed for the babies in our lives! The Snuggwugg- The Interactive Pillow! :)
The slip cover is so soft!  It's removable and 100% machine washable. The inside is made from eco-friendly supersoft EcoPurasoft™ fill.  This is the front of the Snuggwugg.

The front and the back have loops. Which are meant for hanging your baby's favorite toy and/or teether. You can probably attach a pacifier hook to it as well. My son likes to chew on them :) This is the back of the Snuggwugg. The strap is great because it goes around baby and stays in place.

Designs that you can choose from include~ A whale, owl, dinosaur and elephant. There is also a brand new design called Dream Big Little One. So cute!
In this sensory pocket, you can put flash cards, a smartphone, family photos, etc. When played with, it makes a crinkling noise which is great for stimulating baby with sound and touch. My son loves the sound of crinkling toys so he was excited about this accessory.

 Snuggwugg <3
 As you can see here, the Snuggwugg is MUCH smaller than the Boppy. Which makes the Snuggwugg more portable. Take it with you on road trips, to the grocery store, doctors office, on playdates, daycare, flights, etc. Everyone will notice your Snuggwugg!
The Snuggwugg keeps my son entertained while I change his diaper or while I am cleaning or folding laundry. He is always in eye sight, of course.
The Snuggwugg is great for tummy time or for learning how to sit up.

My Thoughts
As you can see(above), my 6 month old LOVES his Snuggwugg :) He enjoyed just laying there, looking at the toys hanging from it. I really like that the Snuggwugg allows you to customize it to your babies liking. Being able to hang their toys is great. He is able to sit up on his own thanks to the Snuggwugg. I let him play with his Snuggwugg while I grocery shop. It keeps him entertained and happy. My 3 year old son loves it as well. He likes to put a smartphone in it so he can read some of his favorite books.

Recommended for ages 3 months- 3 years. Do not leave baby unattended.

Purchase a SNUGGWUGG today! Great for baby showers, Christmas, birthdays or just because :)

Balloon Typhoon Water Balloons Review

 Hello! Here is the perfect solution to those hot summer days! Balloon Typhoon's Water Balloons! No more filling up one balloon at a time :)

 Allows you to fill 37 balloons at once! Yes, you read that right.. 37!

Very colorful :)

The balloons are held on by tiny, little elastics.
My Thoughts
We had a ton of fun playing with these water balloons. It was so nice to not have to sit in front of the faucet for 30 minutes and only get 20 balloons filled up. With the Balloon Typhoon, I filled up over 100 balloons in under a minute! Crazy, I know. We also figured out that the tubes, when left on the hose after the balloons are filled, can be used as a sprinkler! So we not only had fun with the balloons, but we were able to repurpose the tubes that fill them up!
The Balloon Typhoon attaches to any standard size hose.
The balloons pop easily when thrown. Perfect for a cool down on hot summer days. Great for birthday parties!

Bumble Bee Tuna's New Flavors Review

Hey! Welcome! Today, I get to share with you some yummy albacore tuna from Bumble Bee! Their new flavors are, Chipotle & Olive Oil, Jalapenos & Olive Oil and Sundried Tomatoes & Olive Oil. Made with only Prime Fillet! If you like tuna, you'll have to try these!
 Chipotle, Jalapeno, Sundried Tomatoes

Jalapenos & Olive Oil

I was most excited to try this kind! There's nothing like adding a little spiciness to your food. But, after eating the tuna, I was disappointed to find that the tuna was not spicy. At all! Although, it did have the taste of the Jalapeno Peppers, It was more sweet than spicy. Putting the non-existing spiciness aside, I really liked this flavor. Great on crackers or bread.
Containing- White tuna, Olive Oil, Jalapeno Peppers, Vinegar, Salt, Natural Flavors, Soy
Chipotle & Olive Oil

I'd say that this flavor was the most flavorful. The Chipotle flavor is not spicy at all. Again, another sweet flavor rather than spicy. This flavor would be great to put on top of a salad.
Containing- White Tuna, Olive Oil, Chipotle in Adobo(Chipotle Peppers, Water, Tomato Paste, Salt, Sugar, Onion, Spices, Cilantro, Vinegar, Garlic, Sesame Oil), Natural Flavors, Soy
Sundried Tomatoes & Olive Oil

My favorite. You can really taste the sundried tomatoes. Very flavorful and tasty. It really give the tuna a Mediterranean flavor. Perfect for a salad, crackers or in a wrap.  
Containing- White Tuna, Olive Oil, Sundried Tomatoes, Fresh Garlic, Salt, Natural Flavors, Soy
These flavor would make for a good appetizer. Serve with crackers and/or fresh vegetables.

Bumble Bee has a HUGE range of products. Check them out here.

Homemade Pizzas Using Nello's Marinara Sauce

Hey! This was our first time making pizzas on the grill. They were absolutely delish! Thanks to Nello's Marinara Sauce,  of course! I swear, this sauce is good on ANYTHING! Is there a such thing as a sauce martini? Haha, I'd sooo try one! Hmm...
I started out making my own, homemade pizza dough. Using NO yeast.
Fresh tomato, mozzarella and fresh basil pizza! Om!
The finished product :)

Delish! Nello's Marinara! Pure awesomeness! This Marinara could not get any better! It just soaks right into the dough, making the pizza so flavorful.
