Look Who’s Growing personalized growth chart

We recently got this gorgeous growth chart from a company called “Look Who’s Growing” to review and we are beyond impressed with the quality of this product. They are a manufacturer of personalized growth charts and have over 30 different designs and colors for you to choose from. You can personalize it with their name, date of birth and even a picture. It sure does make your child feel proud and good about growing..

 

Look-Who's-Growing-personalized-growth-chart

 

Made with high-quality vinyl and a wooden dowel inserted at the bottom with 2 grommets at the top for easy mounting, these charts are available in 2 different widths: 6 and 12 inches. You can tell that there’s a lot of love put into these growth charts. Our son was over the moon with happiness when we opened his. And as an added bonus, you won’t need to have your walls all marked up with different measurements with the “Look Whos Growing” products.

SafetyTat Review.. The new way to keep our kids safe!

SafetyTat-Review..-The-new-way-to-keep-our-kids-safe!

 

This is the “just in case” tattoo. We personally would rather be safe than sorry so that is why we really like these tattoos from SafetyTat. It can happen to even the best of us, we are out somewhere with the little one(s) and within just a split second your child runs out of sight. This happened to us the other day, the little one thought it would be funny to go and hide on us at the mall. Let me tell ya that we were panicking for a moment. It turned out that he was sitting on the empty shelf of the toilet paper towards the back cause he thought it would be really funny to scare mommy and daddy… We were lucky and located him right away but it could have easily been a different outcome…

These are tattoos that we would use on our son or niece if we were going out where it was busy and with a lot of people. We don’t live in a big city but these definitely come in handy at events, vacations, parks and more…. We also think schools should have these types of products with them when they take the kids on trips or anything like that. It definitely is the safer alternative.

SafetyTat-Review..-The-new-way-to-keep-our-kids-safe!
These Safety tattoos are sweatproof, waterproof, easy to apply and very fun to wear.. Which kid would not want a cute tattoo with their phone number on it?. With such a variety of products to choose from, I know there’s something for everyone’s family. You will find something that will meet your needs. They even have allergy/medical alert tattoos. I think kids will like these a lot more than a medical ID bracelet that tends to get in the road and it’s also bulky. Not fun!!!

SafetyTat-Review..-The-new-way-to-keep-our-kids-safe!

If you are looking for a durable, long-lasting product that will keep your family safe, then SafetyTat is what you are looking for!!! We would definitely recommend this company to all of our family and friends with children. Like I said, we would rather be safe than sorry and this is the perfect way to go.

Little Life Box Review

When it comes to subscription boxes there are tons of options out there but not all of those options are always worth the money. We think that they’re a great way to try out new products or products that you may never have tried or even seen before. Little Life Box is a healthy subscription box that is definitely worth the money and with 12 products to sample you can’t go wrong!

This subscription box is full of useful healthy products that are also Gluten-Free and Organic depending on if you choose that option as there are also “regular” orders for those that aren’t Vegan or Gluten-Free. Snacks, mealtime samples, beauty products, feminine hygiene products, tooth brushes recycled from yogurt containers and much, much more come packed in these truly helpful boxes. Honestly, some of the things that were in our box we never would have purchased on our own and we’re completely overjoyed with the fact that we were able to sample them as we will definitely be purchasing them in the future. Yay for samples!

frugal

 

The Little Life Box monthly subscription box is available for $19.95 CDN + $3.95 shipping to anywhere in Canada and can be ordered from their website below. We also really like the fact that we can send out gift boxes for $22.95 + shipping. This is a great way to introduce friends and family to healthy products that they may never have tried as well. We were very impressed with our Little Life Box subscription and the products that were included in it which is why we totally recommend trying it out.

Crofters Organic Fruit Spreads Review

Breakfast is one of the first demands in our house and let’s just say it’s not always welcome, lol. When it’s one of those mornings toast is the quickest option until the adults have enough caffeine to function. One of our little guys favorite condiment for toast is jam. Since there’s a Coeliac in the house we’ve become regular buyers of Crofters Organic fruit spreads and we absolutely love them!

Crofters-Organic-Fruit-Spreads-Review

 

 

Crofters spreads taste like they’ve been made with the freshest field berries that anyone could ever find. From marmalade’s to Four-Fruit spreads, there’s a flavor to appeal to every taste. One of our favorites things about Crofters Organic is the fact that are a Canadian company based in Ontario. A few other things that we love about Crofters is:

  • GMO-Free
  • Sustainable Company
  • Certified Organic
  •  Gluten-Free
  • Vegetarian
  • Vegan
  • Corn-Free
  • Nut-Free (not certified but nothing but fruit spreads produced)

Crofters-Organic-Fruit-Spreads-Review

 

 

Strawberry Premium Spread Available in 10 oz and 16.5 oz jars

Not only are these fruit spreads healthy and good on toast but they’re also great for recipes like the delicious Crunchy PB & J bars that we made using Crofters recipe.

 

Crofters-Organic-Fruit-Spreads-Review

 

We are definitely impressed with Crofters Organic spreads and their deliciously healthy ingredients. They’re products retail in our for $3.99-$4.99 which is a great price for a healthy product. We totally recommend these tasty spreads and think that they’ll be a hit with our readers as well.

One spray of the OraMD Breath Spray and it will completely eliminate those embarrassing bad breath moments. It doesn’t just mask the odor, it kills the bacteria causing the bad breath.

OraMD-Breath-by-Trusted-Health-Products-Review
This product is for people ages 13 years or older. It does taste very strong at first but after a few sprays, I promise you’ll get used to it. Its kind of like when you wash your mouth out with mouth wash and you get that bad burning sensation afterwards?? Yeah its like that!!! But it gets better and if it burns you know its working ! LOL

If you want something that is quick and effective than this will be your new favorite mouth spray.

My Journey With Chronic Kidney Disease

 

What is Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) also known as Chronic Renal Disease? This disease occurs when the kidneys lose function at a progressive rate, usually over a period of months or years. It’s diagnosed when someone is being screened for it especially people who have diabetes as our kidneys are one of the organs that diabetes attacks.

My-Journey-With-Chronic-Kidney-Disease

Kidneys are a huge factor in a humans well being because they filter the toxins from our blood. A big problem for those of us suffering from CKD is potassium which can cause you to have a heart attack if there’s too much in your blood. Phosphorus which causes brittle bones as it sucks the calcium out of our bones when we are dialyzed and of course sodium AKA salt which causes us to retain water and it dehydrates the kidneys. All food contains these minerals and can’t always be avoided, however there are many foods that are very high in them and MUST be avoided. There’s a lot of delicious food that we’re unable to eat because of this!

My-Journey-With-Chronic-Kidney-Disease

There is hope with kidney transplants and thankfully for those of us with diabetes a pancreatic-kidney transplant. It’s a long grueling process with dialysis treatment and the numerous different tests and meetings for the screening process of a transplant and sometimes we have problems, rightly so, and we feel like throwing in the towel. I hate to say it but these are times when we need encouragement. While it may seem that we have it easy sitting in a chair for 4 hours a day for 3 days a week, we don’t! We feel completely drained somewhat like having the flu. We’re extremely hungry, sore and tired. We get migraines that last for days. We also have palpitations and often suffer from blood pressure drops. We may not show how horrible we feel but on a daily basis we feel like crap. Some days worse than others.

With the screening process taking place for my transplants I’m extremely overwhelmed by the thought of it all and I imagine that I’ll more than likely be a basket case by the time the surgery actually takes place but until then I’m keeping my head up and my thoughts positive that I’ll be able to live a normal life without all the health problems.

This is now part of my daily make up routine and I will tell you all the reasons why below..

 

With this eye shadow, you’ll get nothing but Intense color and intense sparkle. I absolutely love it. The best thing too is that it comes in 6 different colour combinations, so there is something for all eye colors.. I have brown eyes and think these natural colors are great for me as I don’t like to be too flashy!!! Au Naturel is the appearance that I like to have.

Marcelle-Eye-Shadow-Trio+-Chocolat-Vanille-Review

 

It’s very pretty and convenient! It’s small so that it can easily fit into your purse or bag. It’s not bulky at all. When you open this eye shadow there is a little hidden compartment that holds the brush under the color palate.

Some great info about this product is unlike your current eye shadow, Marcelle’s is:

  • Hypo-Allergenic
  • Perfume Free
  • Paraben Free
  • Oil Free
  • Gluten Free
  • And it has been Ophthalmologist Tested..

Can’t get any better than this.. I urge you to try this one next, you’ll love it as much as I and many others do.

CC Cream SPF 35 Complete Correction – Golden Glow Review

I am a lover of all things Marcelle 🙂 I first tried their BB cream and fell in love. In my 29 years, this has been the only cream for my face that I actually fell in love with. I find it covers your face very well, doesn’t leave blotches or that make up line that you sometimes see on your neck when you apply foundation to your face. These products are not like this at all..

 

CC-Cream-SPF-35-Complete-Correction-Golden-Glow-Review

Recently I had the chance to try some new products from Marcelle and once again, I am so happy with them!! Here is some great information on these products…

  1. CC Cream SPF 35 Complete Correction – Golden Glow $29.95 CAD

– “True complexion illuminator with light reflecting gold pigments, the CC Cream Golden Glow boosts radiance instantly and gives your skin a multitude of skincare properties… all-in-one!”

CC-Cream-SPF-35-Complete-Correction-Golden-Glow-Review

This awesome correction cream is the next best thing to the BB cream. Some of the things that I love about it is that it’s 100% free of:

  • Hypo-Allergenic
  • Perfume Free
  • Paraben Free
  • Oil Free
  • Comedogenic
  • And it has been Dermatologist Tested..

“Offers the same benefits as BB Cream, but with more long-term skin care benefits and nourishing ingredients.”

  • Provides a healthy glow effect with just the right hint of illumination
  • Corrects and helps prevent the appearance of dark spots and imperfections
  • Offers complete coverage
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Favors and improves skin elasticity

I think you should give this cream a try next time you are out shopping. You will not be disappointed!!

Lakota Products – Review

Muscle and joint pain are an everyday occurrence in this house. Backs, shoulders, knees, it all aches! Since we aren’t fans of pain medication unless it’s absolutely necessary we need other alternatives. One of those alternatives is Lakota and the best thing about this company is that their products are herbal medicines made with natural ingredients.

 

“Lakota is a blend of herbal medicine: white willow bark, yucca root and devil’s claw, boswellia and others; combined with modern, natural ingredients such as glucosamine and collagen type II.”

 

The products we were sent include:

 

  • Extra Strength: soft-touch application. Pain relief for the shoulders, wrists, knees, elbows and other joints.. (Arv $19.99   )

 

extra-strength-soft-touch-1_large

 

 

  • Back Pain: roll-on application. Relieves back pain.  (Arv $ 19.99  )

 

Lakota2012_Topical_BackPain_RO_3D

 

 

  • Diabetic Foot Pain Cream: relieves pain caused by nerve damage due to Diabetes. *Not to be used on cracked/broken skin!  (Arv $ 19.99  )

 

Lakota2013_FootPain_3D_large

 

 

 

  • Arthritis Roll-On – Temporarily relieves arthritis pain. A natural pepper extract in Lakota Arthritis Roll-on effectively reduces joint pain. It is fast, non-greasy, and odorless  (Arv $ 19.99  )

Lakota2012_Topical_Arthritis_RO_3D

 

These products are non-greasy, fast acting and absorb quickly so there’s no rubbing it in for 5 minutes like some pain relievers we’ve used. We’re really loving that we don’t have to get the products on our hands other than the foot cream as both the Extra Strength and the Back Pain come with applicators attached to them.

 

This has got to be one of our favorite things about these products because the applicators actually work! We’ve tried some products that have applicators as well but they released so much ointment that it still had to be rubbed in. So, awesome job on that Lakota!

 

The fact that this product truly works on Jays shoulders which are constantly aching, and the fact that it’s virtually mess free is why we highly recommend them. If you’re into sports, have Arthritis or just have muscle and joint pain in general you need to try this companies products. They even have remedies for sleep and canines.

The Gluten-Free Cookbook Over 200 Delicious Recipes Review

We were recently presented with an opportunity from Canadian Blog House to review a wonderful cookbook by DK Canada. This wonderful book has over 200 delicious recipes that are pretty easy to make and with gluten-free all-purpose flours rather than the ones you have to mix.

The-Gluten-Free-Cookbook-Over-200-Delicious-Recipes-Review

We were very impressed with this cookbook which is why we’re recommending it.  We would love it if you would take a look at our guest post and leave us some feedback. You can find our post HERE.

BrandGear – Teton 3-in-1 Jacket review

It’s a new year and with it comes some of the coldest months of the year. A time when the layers go on before leaving the house. Unless you have a nice warm jacket that is! That’s where Brand Gear Canada comes in.

 

The amazing jacket that we’re talking about from them is the Teton 3-in-1. This jacket is warm, nice & roomy and it doesn’t hug you like most jackets do. This allows air pockets that help keep extra heat inside the coat. The outer shell has 2 side pockets and one Napoleon (chest) pocket. The hood is detachable as is the outer shell and it has a draw string to keep wind, rain & snow out. It’s really awesome that this coat has removable linings as you’ll have a jacket for each season by simply removing the layers!

 

BrandGear-Teton-3-in-1-Jacket-review

 

There different materials that construct the jacket include:

 

●Shell: 100% Nylon taslan with waterproof/breathable coating & water-repellent finish on the surface.

●Lining: 100% Polyester mesh on upper body.

●100% Polyester taffeta on lower body, sleeves & hood. 100% Polyester brushed tricot on inner collar and pocket bags.

●Component Jacket Shell: 100% Polyester with water-repellant channel quilted to soft polyfil insulation.

●Component Jacket Lining: 100% Polyester taffeta Component Jacket Insulation: 100% Polyester soft polyfil 3 oz

There are so many awesome qualities to this jacket that it would take us more than 1 post! It’s doing a wonderful job in -35° C weather here in Canada which makes it a great-coat in our eyes. It retails for $274.99 and is available for purchase on BrandGear’s webstore.

We love stuffing and since we no longer eat the boxed stuff we’ve started making our own stuffing from scratch. Check out our recipe below.

 

Homemade-GlutenFree-Stuffing-#HJrecipes

 

What you will need:

 

  • 6-7 large potatoes
  • 4-6 slices of Udis Gluten-free bread crusts (ends)
  •  1 medium-sized onion
  •  1/4 green pepper
  •  1/4 red pepper
  •  1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning
  •  Pinch of summer savoury
  •  1/2 tsp Herbamare salt alternative
  •  1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  •  1/4 tsp. onion powder
  •  Dash of pepper

 

 

Directions:

 

Peel, was and pare the potatoes. Partially cook them approximately 5 minutes. Drain and set aside.

 

Cut the bread into 4 lengthwise strips. Cut the strips into bite sized pieces approximately the size of a crouton. Place in a bowl and add the spices, peppers and onions. Stir well to coat all pieces with seasoning.

 

Cut potatoes into chunks roughly the size of the bread pieces. Add to bread and spice mixture. Stirring to coat. Cover with tin foil and bake for 30 minutes or until the bread has become moist.

Way Better Snacks Review

It’s a new year and that means it’s time to eat even better than the last! We already eat pretty healthy as it is but it doesn’t hurt to try to eat even healthier right? How on earth does a person do something like that though? Easy….. You start with Way Better Snacks!

 

These snacks aren’t only tasty but their better for you as they’re packed with nutrients. From stone ground corn to sprouted broccoli seeds, these snacks won’t leave you feeling guilty for “snacking”.

 

Way-Better-Snacks-Review

 

Why sprouting? Well, sprouting provides increased vitamins, minerals & antioxidants as well as for its digestibility and the amount of nutrients your body absorbs.

 

●Made with simple ingredients.

●No fillers

●No preservatives

●No artificial colors or flavors

●Non-GMO verified

●Certified gluten-free

●Certified kosher

●Certified whole grain

and

●Many ingredients are also organic!

 

Way-Better-Snacks-Review

 

We really like that these snacks have the same crunch that a tortilla chip does and that they taste good too. It’s hard to find healthy products that actually taste good but that’s so not the case here! Only 5 flavors are available in Canada (not the No Salt Naked Blues)

 

Some of the delicious flavors that we tried are:

●Simply Sunny Multi-Grain

●Simply Unbeatable Blues (blue corn)

●Simply Beyond Black Bean

●Simply Sweet Potato

●Simply Sweet Chili

and

●No salt Naked Blues (blue corn)

NuGuard KX case for your iPhone 4/4S – 5/5S Review

Cell phones aren’t very safe with us. If we’re not spilling something on them or putting them through the washing machine, we’re dropping them! The concern about that is the price of the machines. Cell phones aren’t cheap nowadays. This one offers X-treme protection against accidental drops, impacts and scratches without sacrificing looks or adding bulk! And I love that I still have easy access to all ports and buttons.

NuGuard-KX-case-for-your-iPhone-4/4S - 5/5S-Review

We’ve recently found a company who makes very durable cell phone cases that are military drop tested. That means that it’s been through rigorous testing involving impact resistance. There are 28 different testing methods used in this test including tests for temperatures, fungus infestation and even gunfire. This totally gives us confidence about the safety of our phones.

This amazing product we’re talking about is known as the NuGuard KX  for iPhone 5/5S & iPhone 4/4S from NewerTech. We love that this case is lightweight and extremely protective. Made with Hyper-advanced X-orbing gel there’s no worry about kinetic energy being absorbed by your phone as it’s evenly distributed.

NuGuard-KX-case-for-your-iPhone-4/4S - 5/5S-Review

These cases are available in an array of different colors and designs and retail for $15 USD. It’s super easy to put your phone into the case and because of the way it’s made there’s extra protection for the phones edges that still allows you to organize apps without interference.

We’re definitely impressed with the quality and protection of this product and can’t wait to see what other cool cases they come out with in the future!

BrandGear’s – The Bolt Urban Messenger Bag Review

We are always using some sort of bag for lugging stuff along  when traveling. Whether it’s to town or down to dialysis, we always have something to bring along. For the longest while we were using those reusable groceries bags and then we moved on to a backpack. Those were nice and big but not very convenient or light for that matter!

 

BrandGear's-The-Bolt-Urban-Messenger-Bag-Review

 

The Bolt Urban Messenger Bag  from BrandGear Canada is now our favorite. It’s made of a nice light material with a handle for carrying as well as an adjustable strap so it can be worn over the shoulder or across the torso.

 

Inside the bag there is 1 large compartment that we usually keep snacks and paperwork in. The snacks being in containers of course. There are also several smaller pockets for pens, cards and an mp3 player, cell phone or small device. To keep it closed it has a flap with a velcro closure which also includes a media port for headphones. And last but not least, it also has a side mesh pocket for bottle storage or even a thermos.

 

BrandGear's-The-Bolt-Urban-Messenger-Bag-Review

 

We really like that this bag isn’t bulky or heavy and that we can carry it if becomes too heavy. It retails for $11.00 CDN which to us is an excellent price for the quality of the bag.
