ZITS! The New Obsession for Kids and Disgust for Moms.

“We love picking. Make no mistake about it. We love that disgusting little habit nobody likes to talk about. Yup, it is our unique obsession.” – Billy and Summer Pierce

Billy and Summer have designed a product specifically for your family’s popping pleasure. Our family loves them, and we think you will too. Providing you with plenty of pimple popping fun, ZITS are flesh-like toys that are filled with fake pus that spews out when you successfully pop the fake ZIT. These have become quite a hit and have been selling rapidly online.


Popping pimples is a habit for some and just silly fun for others. This bizarre, but brilliant idea is designed to mimic the unique obsession of popping pimples. With all the entertainment the pimple poppers provide, it is easy to see why it has become such a hot product.

Reduce Stress and Relax this with The AiroSpa™ Pillow

If you or someone you know has a hard time getting to sleep or staying asleep, you will love the relaxation and stress relief that comes with the AiroSpa™ Pillow,  My intended has a hard time sleeping, and has been battling insomnia for as long as I’ve known him, and he has really enjoyed the AiroSpa Pillow- we tend to use it before bed, as a massage pillow. It’s nice to lay on and makes it easy to reach all your back and neck, without having to turn this way or that, or getting a stiff neck in the process, and it also gives the extra relaxation benefit of the aromatherapy. He really likes the shape of it, but feels that the fan doesn’t put out enough scent- it’s so subtle that he can’t really smell it, and I agree. Maybe after many uses, it will start to produce more smell. The best part of the pillow is the back rub use- it really is perfect for that purpose.

It’s no secret that stress and its physical and emotional impact may be the nation’s #1 hidden health issue. A recent CBS News study found that more Americans than ever before are stressed and depressed. The study found a full 8.3 million or 3.4% of the entire population suffer from serious psychological distress. The AiroSpa™ Pillow is one of the simplest and most affordable solutions to the stress challenge, and it’s easy to use as well.


The Other F Word Series is Back With Season 2!

The Other F Word

Last year I shared with you about The Other F Word, an edgy comedy about a group of friends who find that the angst of raising kids may be nothing compared to the angst of starting over after they are grown.  The show, written and producer by Caytha Jentis, was met with so many rave reviews I’m thrilled they’ve just released Season 2! My only possible complaint is that it ended too soon but I loved being about to binge watch for free through Amazon streaming.

The Other F Word proves that we don’t have to be afraid of getting older – there’s nothing scary about “forty.” And these four friends certainly bring a fun, comedic perspective to the issues surrounding midlife for women. You’ll love the cast including Judy Gold, Steve Guttenberg, Gilbert Gottfried, Michael Boatman, Alysia Reiner and Nancy Giles. Plus, former Comedy Central EVP and comedian Judy Gold joins Jentis as an Executive Producer. The chemistry between these characters is brilliantly portrayed and highlights the importance of friendship at every age. With such an amazing group there’s no doubt Jentis has another hit season on her hands.

What’s New at Dollar Shave Club

Disclosure- The following was sent for review in order to facilitate this post. The items were reviewed by my husband, who wrote (much of) this post. For more, see “I Disclose”.

As a man, there are fewer things more mindbogglingly annoying as buying a razor.  Many of them are locked up behind a counter, as well as being astronomically priced- but they are necessary evils.

Or so we thought- with the internet, there is now a way to get blades for an entire month for as little as $3.  Dollar Shave Club is here with a great deal for anyone who shaves.  As an introduction, prices are reduced so getting into the swing of using the club saves you money as well.  Once up and running, it is possible to get refill blades every month then after delivered to you for as little as $3.  But razors and handles aren’t the only shaving items available.

SoCozy Boo! Kids Hair Products #SoCozyHair #SplashHappy #SoCozyKid

School can be a scary place for kids.  With many other kids, new faces, and high expectations, there is one thing kids shouldn’t be afraid of at school- and that is bugs.  One such menace that plagues schools is lice.  When an outbreak hits, every parent in school knows it and its a mad dash to keep them from spreading to your child and bringing them home.  Preventative measures help, but what can a parent use to keep these nasties away from your kids? Why not scare them away with the Boo! line of lice scaring hair products from SoCozy?  These products (as with all the rest of SoCozy’s products) are safe and effective, completely non toxic, and are made without parabens, formaldehyde, sulfates, phthalates, synthetic color, propylene glycol. Free of alcohol, gluten, wheat, peanuts and tree nuts.

There are three lice scaring products- one is a spray, one a shampoo, and one a conditioner.  Each of them is made to keep lice away from your kids and out of your home.  The shampoo and conditioner are used like any other while washing.  Rinse hair, lather up shampoo, and wash out.  The conditioner should be worked into the hair and scalp then left in for 30 seconds then rinsed out.  The final spray will is to be sprayed on wet or dry hair.  Each product should be used daily to keep up the protection.  Our little guy’s school has had a few lice scares and has been able to scare them away each time thankfully (knock on wood).

Merck Consumer App

When you travel, particularly this time of year, it can be hard to avoid the inevitable illness. Whether it’s just a minor sniffle or a stomach virus, traveling when you’re sick can be a real bummer. What’s worse, when you’re away from home, it can be hard to know where to turn for medical advice. The Merck Manual Consumer app can take a lot of the worry out of travel—particularly with sick kids.

The Merck Manual Consumer App can be an invaluable resource for you. Interactive quizzes, symptom checkers, and medical advice can all be found quickly and easily by navigating through the free app interface and put many of your worries to rest. Know when to contact a doctor or when to treat symptoms while on the go.

The free app is also a great way of staying in charge of your own and your family’s healthcare needs—particularly if you are managing an already diagnosed health condition. FAQs, types of tests, symptoms, medications, and side effects are discussed for a wide range of health concerns. There’s no reason to put your life and travels on hold when you can have access to a wide range of health-related questions and answers at your fingertips.

There’s no doubt about it—there are few things as awful as trying to manage traveling and globetrotting while you’re sick—except maybe having a kiddo who’s sick while on the go. Travel and exposure to other cultures are one of the most important things you can give your child. Experiences are lessons they will take with them the rest of their lives. However, being sick can put a damper on those experiences, and worrying about your kids while you are away from home and away from your pediatrician can turn a magical experience into a nightmare. The Merck Manual Consumer app takes a lot of the guesswork out of managing an illness while on the road. Whether it is a chronic illness or the nasty flu bug going around, you can have up-to-date answers with the app right on your device.
