I have Petcakes! Review and GIVEAWAY!!!


Do you want to squeak? (Did you? You did. You know you did! Ok, I did too, lol)
This is Twinkle Sprinkles!
OK, so, I was surfing the web one day, and I saw this really cute magazine page (web-azine page?)
for PetCakes- Gift Shop Mag

Well Made Toys, creators of “Dolly Mine” and “Animal Biggums”, have released these sweetie-treats for kids (and the young at heart!) who want to have the cutest cupcakes around! What is better then cupcakes? Um, puppies! They are adorable little pup-cakes, lol, that you just want to eat up! (Well, except for all that stuffing.) 2 great things we can’t resist in one- who can resist a puppy OR a cupcake? (Not me!)
The cute little puppies have mini frosting hats and sit in cupcake wrappers. LOVE the bright and happy colors.
The first set of PetCakes has four huggable poochies.

Randy Candy™ is a lovable mutt, scampering around playfully and taking long naps in his cupcake wrapper. Randy Candy is topped with tasty frosting and a cherry.
Blueberry Buddy™ is a Shar Pei who acts tough for his size but is a loving push over who’s as sweet as the blueberry frosting on his head. When sleepy, Blueberry Buddy cozies up in his own cupcake wrapper.
Twinkle Sprinkles™ is a playful, loving, and mischievous Beagle, whose colorful pink sprinkled frosting top looks good enough to eat! Twinkle Sprinkles likes to yelp when happy and sleep in her cupcake wrapper where her nose stays nice and toasty.
Coco-Coconut™ is a fluffy poodle and as lovingly sweet as a frosted cupcake. Cuddle Coco-Coconut and keep her warm in her cupcake wrapper.

OOO, can you stand it??? The pictures do not do them any sort of justice.
No offense, picture-taker! They are just way too cute for photography. 🙂
So, when they got here- can you imagine Little Man and Kamikaze’s reaction?
Little grabbed “Randy Candy” out of the box before I had the chance to say “boo!’

Kamikaze, not about to miss out, waited until they were unpacked. She waited quietly (too quietly!) in the background….and snuck off to her room! Readers- have you noticed a pattern to Kamikaze? Sneaky and sly, that one, lol….So here she is, with Twinkle Sprinkles, Coco Coconut, [Read more…]

I have such a fun company to introduce to you, bloggy buddies!
It is a really unique stuffed animal company, called “This Place is a Zoo!” ( I know, even the name is cute!)
So, as soon as I saw this great website, and the adorable and super detailed toys they offered AT A REALLY GREAT COST, I knew I had to tell you all about them.

Little Man and Kamikaze went “ape” over this little guy.

Monkey Monkey Music Review

So, “What Are The Odds” that you will like the same CD that your toddler will? Pretty good, I’d say, if that CD happens to be “Monkey Monkey Music” from Meredith LeVande.

OK, so, you all know I am a Pre-School teacher, right? (as well as momma to a 3 and 6 year old)
So, can I tell you how much kids music I hear? OK, like, A LOT. And I am sure most of you know that most kid’s music is super, super annoying. And has absolutely no value what-so-ever to the child.
However, Meredith LeVande (who was chosen as one of New York’s best affordable children’s performers by Time Out New York Kids) did a fantastic job at creating music that kids will love, and parents (and teachers!) will too. It is also educational music, which is fantastic. I really prefer that the kids listen to songs with a message, that they can learn from, rather then just noise pumping at them.

(On a personal note- I got to exchanging emails with Meredith, and she is a lovely, sweet, compassionate woman. She truly loves children, and her top priority is connecting with the child on his or her level. Because she loves children, she makes sure that her music is not only pleasing to the ear, but also developmentally appropriate for them. That was not part of the music review, per se. That was for you parents and teachers out there, so you know that she is the “real deal”, because I think you should know. The people who [Read more…]

Anytime Costumes Review and GIVEAWAY!!!

It’s almost Halloween! Hooray! That is the hubby’s favorite time of year. Little Man is super, super excited this year- he finally “gets it”, lol….
So, we are starting to pull our decorations out of the attic, and getting our costumes ready….
What’s that? You have no costume? Oh no!
It’s OK, it’s only September! (But you had better move it, they sell out FAST! hehe)
So, just in time to save the day, comes ANYTIME COSTUMES.com!

They sent Kamikaze a costume, and in true Kamikaze form, what did she choose?
A pretty princess?

A heavenly angel?

Nay nay! She chose NINJA Fighter, in leather. Yes, thank you. She is quite demure, lol.

Hey, I like my girls tough! Let someone tell her a girl can’t- she can karate chop them! Hahaha…
Anytime Costumes had so many great kids costumes, it was really hard to choose.
They have sizes for infant through adults, including plus sizes. They even have a section for group costume ideas- that is really neat. If you want to go as a group, you can just sent the link to all your friends and- easy peasy!
Anytime Costumes was SO easy to order from, and super, super fast! Like, lightning fast.
They actually shipped the same day I ordered. Yeah. For real. It was here in 3 days. 3 DAYS. Yep.
Kamikaze heard the doorbell ring, saw the package- and can you see she was a bit excited?

OOOh, nice face, hubs! LOL….

And here it is! Little was excited, too 🙂
Of course, Miss Kamikaze had to try out her new Ninja wear….Who knows? She may have been called that very eve to protect an empire! [Read more…]

Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil Review

Oh. My. Goodness.
Have you ever tasted something, and just stopped? Like, stopped and stared at the food?
This is insane!?! That kind of good.

We received Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil to review, and it was out of this world. I have never used coconut oil before, so this was a first for me!

My husband is a very, very good cook. Better then I am, if I am being honest. (Who needs that? Haha) And he loves to cook. So, when we received the coconut oil to try, he claimed “dibs” on trying it first.
Apparently, coconut oil is a fairly healthy way to cook. It may be the healthiest oil on earth– you decide!

Excellent, kitchen-tested recipes can be found on the Free Coconut Recipes blog here: http://www.freecoconutrecipes.com

However, the hubs didn’t use the recipe link- even though I told him about it, lol….
but I am not sorry he didn’t! He made AMAZING chicken cutlets.
First, he dipped it in flour, then egg, then 1 part breadcrumb 1 part fresh shredded coconut.

He then fried it in the Virgin Coconut Oil until the chicken was golden brown, and viola!

Then, he crushed pineapple, put in a chile pepper, a little bit of sugar, and fried it in the coconut oil….

And dinner was ready! (Yes, yes, we had broccoli, too- but focus, people, focus! LOOK at that! I want to frame it!)
It was like eating a pina [Read more…]

Costume Super Center Review :)

September is here, and you know what that means! Yep, soon it will be October, and them you will have armies of costume-clad little minions at your door begging for candy…hehehe.
Stores are already selling costumes and decorations- and they already ran “Nightmare Before Christmas” on TV! Yes indeed, Halloween is fast approaching. You had better get on that costume hunt and candy buying, already!
If you are like me, you want to get the good costumes before they run out- which is usually early October. I’d HATE going out, only to find the costume that my kids want are sold out! I’d feel terrible.
And OOOH, lookie what I found! CostumeSuperCenter! They have every kind of costume, and for babies all the way up to adults. Not just run of the mill stuff you can find at some party store, either- really fun costumes!

The prices are amazing, [Read more…]
