I absolutely love that they have ! I a known for forgetting a card and with this wrapping paper it’s not a problem. The patterns are adorable and I love the concept. Their school supplies are also fresh and fun. I love that they are fun for kids without looking tacky or cheap.

My son is all about firefighters so we decided to get him a with his name on it. He absolutely loves it! It is quality folder and the printing is very well done. The only draw back was that I wish the pattern continued on the inside of the folder because when the folder is open it is completely blank.

New Wave Enviro Products Review and Giveaway (Ends 10/22)

New Wave Enviro is a family owned company that has been providing environmentally friendly products since 1993. They carry a complete line of Enviro Filters, BpA Free Enviro Bottles, Seriously Safe Stainless Steel Bottles and Litter Free Lunch products that are all environmentally friendly and make life easier!



is on a mission to address two issues:

  1. Our water supply has chlorine and other contaminants that shouldn’t be in our bodies. New Wave Enviro manufactures environmentally friendly filters that safely remove these contaminants and keep them out of our bodies.
  2. New Wave Enviro is also concerned with all of the plastic litter and waste that is filling our landfills. Plastic bottles and bags are bad for our wallets and our world. By creating environmentally friendly and reusable alternatives to plastic water bottles and food containers New Wave Enviro is making a difference one bottle at a time.

These seemingly small changes really do add up and make a huge difference. Over the years I have become increasingly concerned with my families global footprint. I have been looking for ways to improve and have actually tried several different reusable water containers but haven’t found any that I really liked. The so called unbreakable ones would break, the rest would leak or not keep my water cold and I just hadn’t found any reasonable option that worked well for my family.

I was very excited to have the opportunity to review the and the . We live in Las Vegas and it was a very hot summer. The smaller bottle with the Flip n’ Sip Cap has been perfect for my son. It’s a great size for my little guy and fits perfectly in his backpack. We haven’t had any issues with leaks, which makes me one happy mama!

The 40 oz. Seriously Safe Stainless Steel Bottle has been wonderful for my husband to take to work. He is out and about away from the water cooler for most of his day and the fact that this bottle holds 40 oz. is fabulous. He really loves it and likes that the opening is a good size without being too big or small like many other reusable water bottles. The only possible improvement would be if it were a little more insulated. That being said we do live in a place that has been consistently well over 100 degrees and we like our water ice cold. It has however kept the water colder than other plastic bottles we have used.

I absolutely appreciate the fact that these Seriously Safe Stainless Steel Bottles are completely dishwasher safe.  I hate hand washing so the fact that they are dishwasher safe scores big points in my book!

BUY: To learn more about New Wave Enviro or to purchase products go directly to their . On their website they give information about each product and give you options to buy online and in retail stores.

PicweMonkey woodCollage

My husband decided on the WeWOOD Date Teak watch, which retails for $120 on their site. When the watch arrived we were both very excited! My husband tried it on and was really impressed with how light it was. We love watches but so many of our favorite styles have a lot of metal and are very heavy because of it. The WeWOOD timepiece is extremely light because it is made of wood.

See’s Candies Review and Giveaway (Ends 10/17)




I cannot think about my childhood or the holidays without thinking of . I am a third generation chocoholic and without questions See’s is my favorite. If you haven’t heard of See’s let me give you a quick See’s-a-cation. In 1921 Charles See came to Los Angeles from Canada to try his hand at the confection business. He used his mother’s image and recipes to help him create the quality, family oriented company. They even modeled their black and white storefronts after Mary Sees’s kitchen.

See’s dedication to quality ingredients and service has resulted in over 200 shops throughout the West. I love the fact that Charles See’s motto, “Quality Without Compromise” continues to guide the company today. These candies look delicious but they taste even better!

My dad takes his See’s seriously. He constantly has a stack of 1lb See’s Gift Cards in his nightstand drawer and has always given them out to clients and friends on special occasions. I remember the excitement I felt when we would enter our local See’s after a great report card or in preparation for the holidays with my 1lb gift certificate in hand.  Even as a child I was impressed with the fabulous customer service that is evident the moment you walk in the door. They great you warmly and even offer you a free sample. I love that they do this because it gives you a chance to try a treat that you may not have tried before.

If you do not live in the West, don’t worry! You can enjoy See’s Candies anywhere! On their website you can purchase gifts and even create your own custom mix. This is my favorite option. I love that you can fill your box with your favorite candies. My favorites are Raspberry Cream, Milk Bordeaux and the Dark Molasses Chip. My husband loves the Scotchmallow and Caramel Patties. Not all of their pieces are available online but they do still have a wonderful selection available.

My package arrived on a day where the weather outside was over 100 degrees and it sat on the porch for at least and hour. The package was so well insulated that it was still cold inside!

Everfan Review and Giveaway (Ends 10/16)

If you were a superhero what would your superpower be? Mine would be telekinesis. I would love to be able to do things with my mind. I think it would be fabulous to do dishes or clean up toys while spending time with my family! For my son it would have to be flying or super strength. He talks about super heroes all the time and actually runs in when you need help and says, “Super M is here to save the day!” Our home is filling up quickly with super hero costumes but when I heard about I knew that it would blow the others out of the water.

Everfan is a company that lets you create and personalize superhero capes. They have a full line of collegiate, personalized and whimsical designs that make it very easy to find the perfect combination for your super hero. Here are some of my favorite designs:

PicMonkey Collageever

For Super M we went with the Red POW Custom Superhero Cape with an M. The cape came with matching Powerbands and an Everfan Superhero Eye Mask. When the package arrived Super M was beyond excited! He loves to put on his cape and run around the house and I love the fact that Everfan makes it possible for him to be his own superhero.

The Powerbands stay securely in place and the cape is well constructed. I love the designs and creativity that goes into each piece. The Superhero Eye Mask doesn’t fit my son perfectly. Like his parents he has a large head and so it puts more pressure on his eyebrows. Everfan gave us some suggestions on how to work with the elastic etc. in order to improve the fit. This was the only aspect of the set that wasn’t perfect. Overall I was extremely impressed with both the product and customer care.

Everfan has been dressing superheroes of all ages since 2011. Scott (AKA Captain Stretch), the founder of Everfan decided he wanted to create a company that combined two of his favorite things: superheroes and college football. They believe in the role imaginative plays in fostering healthy social, cognitive and emotional development for children.
