Thirty-One Gifts Review and Giveaway (Ends 10/9)

is the perfect place to find amazing gifts, purses and bags for home or on the go.  They are focused on empowering women and helping them develop community. Thirty-One has over 120,000 consultants and over 2,000 employees. They are a major company that carries pieces with so many options!

Without question my favorite feature of Thirty-One Gifts is their selection. They carry such a wide variety of pieces and I love that they offer each of their pieces in a variety of patterns and designs. Here are some of my favorite Thirty-One pieces:

PicMonkey Collage31

Almost every product that Thirty-One Gifts carries can be personalized. Personalized products are very popular right now and I love that Thirty-One Gifts has that option. Their pieces are wonderful with or without personalization.

Recently I received the . This tote is fabulously versatile. I have used it to carry swimsuits, towels and pool toys. I have also used it in my car to organize toys, books and snacks. The possibilities are endless! It really is an all-purpose tote. It is approx. 11.75”H x 21.5”W x 10”D and I am constantly impressed with how much this bag can hold. I really appreciate that it is sturdy and holds it shape but is also collapsible for easy storage when you are not using it. This bag alone is available in 22 patterns!


Thirty-One Gifts has an online store but the best way to purchase Thirty-One products is through a consultant. Your consultant is your resource for product information and also lets you know when there are deals and discounts available. Beth (a.k.a. Bag Lady Beth) is my consultant. On her  she keeps you up to date on sales, specials and promotions. She also lets you know what styles are new and which ones are being discontinued. I am not one who loves having or attending parties where things are being sold but I do love being aware of deals and products so that I can make a purchase anytime without any pressure.

Thirty-One Gifts is a wonderful company with fabulous products. It is a great company to have in mind for gifts this holiday season.

Yummi Pouch Review

I have two little ones who love food pouches! I love how easy they are to throw in my bag and take to the park. My daughter loves being able to feed herself independently and I love that they don’t make a mess! The draw back for me is that the cost really starts to add up over time. is a fabulous alternative!

Yummi Pouch carries reusable food pouches that are dishwasher and freezer safe. They have a 6 oz capacity and are perfect for on the go snacks. I absolutely love that they are reusable! I also really like being able to put their favorite yogurts, applesauce and homemade blends into the Yummy Pouch. Yummi Pouch saves money over time and is good for the environment as well.

In addition to the traditional Yummi Pouch they also offer the Yummi Pouch Brights, which are available in four fun, vibrant patterns. We received the Yummi Pouch Brights and love them! Set of 6 regurlar or 4 brights sell for $14.99 each. On their website Yummi Pouch offers a variety of that are a wonderful resource!

We did have an issue with a zipper detaching from the pouch. When I spoke to Yummi Pouch about it they were fabulous. Yummi Pouch products are backed by a 30 day product guarantee. They also told me that this fall they are going to start using a new double zipper, which I think is wonderful. After they replaced the defective pouch we haven’t had any problems and are getting amazing use out of our reusable pouches.

Yummi Pouch carries a full line of attachments, starter sets, pitchers, brushes, stickers, and several other products on their website that you should be sure to check out. I am very interested in the FunBites Cutters, which quickly and easily cuts sandwiches, fruits and other foods into easy to handle, manageable sizes.

Yummi Pouch is a wonderful company that carries baby and toddler friendly feeding products. I would have loved to have received Yummi Pouch at my baby shower or right after my children were born! It would be a wonderful gift for any new mom!

My Little Seat Review and Giveaway (Ending 10/6)

photo 1
My family loves to travel a lot and to have dinner with friends and extended family as often as possible. I cannot tell you how many times I have eaten with one (or both) of my children in my lap. Knowing that we had a trip planned I was looking for a solution to our dinner time challenge and I was very excited to have found My Little Seat. is a fabric travel highchair that can fit on round or square back chairs. It even has holes for chair poles! I love that My Little Seat is the safest travel highchair with a five-point harness system. It really is a secure and comfortable option for your little ones.

photo 1 copy 3

The fact that My Little Seat is made of double thick fabric makes it lightweight and durable. One of my favorite features of My Little Seat is that it is machine washable! How wonderful is that? I also love that it comes with its own little traveling bag that easily fits into a diaper bag. My Little Seat is for children about 6 months old up to 35 pounds. It only takes a few seconds to get it set up and I absolutely love that it allows my little on to sit with us at the table. It is amazing to see how happy she is when she gets to sit with us and be a part of the action at the table.

photo 2
My Little Seat is perfect for traveling because it is extremely compact and easy to set up. It can actually fold up to be about the size of a diaper! I love using it when we are somewhere where there are not available high chairs. It is also perfect to use at restaurants when the highchairs look questionable, which, let’s be honest, is most of the time.

It is such an effective and practical solution that I have used My Little Seat more than I ever thought I would! Honestly, my daughter loves her seat so much we barely use her high chair anymore. My Little Seat is a perfect gift for a baby shower or new mom. It is available in such fun patterns and designs that they get a lot of attention. I wish that I had known about it when I had my son!

LUSH Review

photo 3 copy 2
What I love about is that they create each of their handmade products with the results in mind. They create only the best. They are a quality company and they are committed to their products and the environment. This is evident in their ingredients, global footprint, and the treatment of animals. My favorite example of how they stand behind their products is their packaging; on almost every piece that you purchase from LUSH there is a picture of the person who made or packaged it along with their name, date that it was made and expiration date. The more I learn about LUSH the more that I love LUSH! Recently I had the opportunity to review the from LUSH. This set came in a beautiful floral box and was full of fabulous goodies for your skin!

The first thing that I used was . When you crumble The Comforter under hot running water it fills your tub with pink bubbles and a wonderful scent. It is very lux and leaves your skin feeling silky smooth. This is a bath you won’t want to get out of! There is enough for one or two baths. I only used it for one but next time I will split it up between two baths. On its own The Comforter sells for $10.95. It is fabulous for a splurge when you want to treat yourself.

Next I tried the . LUSH actually was the originator of the bath bomb. They have wide a variety of bath bombs that each have a different purpose. The Sakura Bath Bomb is intended to recreate the feelings of being in a park where the breeze blows through the blossoms. It offers a relaxing, floral scent and is full of essential oils that leave your skin feeling extremely soft. The Sakura Bath Bomb sells for $6.45. It was so relaxing and wonderful!

LUSH also includes .35 oz. of their in their Hello Gorgeous Gift Set and it is wonderful! It is a clean, smooth, quality moisturizer. Without question it is LUSH! They packed this moisturizer full to the brim with the finest organic ingredients they could find. It has fresh juice that provides enzymes and cold pressed vegetable oils. It also contains oils that encourage elasticity. They put so much work into this moisturizer and it shows! This moisturizer is available in 1.5 oz. for $89.95.

You will also find 3.5 oz. of in the set. This shower gel is packed full of exfoliating sea salt and fresh, natural ingredients. It leaves your skin smooth and smelling fresh! The Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub gives you both exfoliation and lather in a fantastic blue scrub. It is very thick because it does not contain much water. As with most other LUSH products, a little bit really does go a long way. On its own 11.8 oz. of the Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub sells for $21.95.

The gift set includes 3.3 oz. of their . On its own you can purchase 8.45 oz. of this LUSH lotion for $27.95. I love the Vanilla scent and it’s fabulous ingredients including kiwi. It is one of LUSH’s lightest moisturizers. Since I live in the dry desert I tend to prefer a more intense moisturizer. Next time I would like to try one of their other options but this lotion absolutely does its job. In my personal opinion it is a great lotion but was the least outstanding piece in a remarkable gift set.  I still plan to use it up but just wasn’t as blown away with the lotion as I was with the rest of the set.

The Hello Gorgeous Gift Set from LUSH also included .5 oz. of their . This sells on its own in a 1.5 oz. package for $16.95 and in my mind is completely worth it! A little bit goes such a long way. You can apply it to your cuticles, feet, elbows, etc. it provides such concentrated moisture. It is extremely thick and full of nutrients for your skin and nails. I love using it on my cuticles the most. I have very dry cuticles and therefore I get a lot of manicures. These manicures really add up and the Lemony Flutter Cuticle Cream really keeps my cuticles healthy and in check. It even works on split ends! This LUSH product was my favorite in the gift set.

LUSH offers such a fabulous selection of quality, fresh, handmade cosmetics. I love their gift sets that give you the opportunity to try or give a variety of products for a great price. The Hello Gorgeous Gift Set sells for $39.95 and is a fabulous deal! LUSH has a wide variety of Wrapped Gifts. I love that they also sell Knot-Wraps, which are made from 100% recycled plastic. These are reusable pieces of cloth that are available in stunning patterns and add a personal touch. You can purchase individual products and wrap them using the Know-Wraps to create your own gift. On the Gifts page of their website they offer a variety of tips for using the Knot-Wrap. LUSH offers gift sets for any price range starting at $10.95.

One of my favorite things about the holidays is spending time with family and playing games. So many of my childhood memories involve playing classic games like Sorry, Clue, Yahtzee, Life and Rack-o with my family. carries classic versions of these games and more on their website!


Winning Moves is a leading maker of classic card and board games for kids and adults. They have a great relationship with Hasbro Inc. Hasbro owns Parker Brothers and Milton Bradley Games. Now many classic games from these companies are exclusively made by Winning Moves Games. Because of this the prices on Winning Moves website are even better than big box stores!

I was so excited to have the opportunity to receive . I loved the fact that it is the exact same packaging and designs that were on the version that I grew up with and I couldn’t help but think back to my childhood while making new memories with my family.

Beyond offering wonderful games and puzzles I love that Winning Moves also has resources where you can find for the games that they carry. This is amazing! I cannot tell you how many times we have lost rules or run out of score sheets! I know that I will take advantage of this fabulous resource! It is details like this that score Winning Moves big points in my book.

Playing games is a great way to teach children to take turns and how to win or loose gracefully. It is also so nice to turn off the electronics and have good, clean fun.

Redmond Review and Giveaway (Ends 9/26)

Redmond is a company that believes nature got it right. They have a passion for wellness and are committed to keeping their products simple, clean and natural. carries a full line of Redmond Bath Salts, Earthpaste, Re-Lyte, Redmond Clay and Real Salt.

photo 4

In Central Utah there is a mineral-rich salt deposit from an ancient dead sea that is the source of the ingredients of Redmond products. Redmond contain an abundance of trace minerals that can help restore minerial-deficiencies through osmosis.

They come in two varieties: Redmond Bath Salt and Redmond Bath Salt Plus. They are both loaded with over 60 trace minerals and help to improve circulation, restore minerals to the body and promote a restful nights sleep. The difference between the two Bath Salts is that the Redmond Bath Salt Plus contains a higher concentration of the minerals, which results in a darker color. The minerals will leave a residue in the bathtub but clean up very easily. I had the opportunity to review the Redmond Bath Salt Plus and really enjoyed soaking before going to bed. It’s a great product and I love that it is all-natural without any additives. I would recommend getting a larger size because the smaller 18 oz container is only enough for 4 baths.


is an acquired taste. There are no artificial ingredients or foaming agents and the toothpaste is actually a tan/brown color. It has a unique texture but is completely safe. It is extremely all-natural and was just too much of a change for my family. If natural toothpaste is something you are used to or if you are wanting to make the change, Earthpaste would be great for you. Don’t be surprised if it takes a while to adjust to the taste if you are new to natural toothpastes.

Redmond comes from a natural clay deposit from volcanic ash near Redmond Utah. Clay has long been used on cuts, burns, muscle aches, bites, bruises and can even been ingested for settling an upset stomach. It is full of minerals and can be used in many ways. My husband was very sore and applied the clay mixture to his thigh. He actually noticed his muscle cramps go away.

Redmond’s is amazing! A little bit really does go a long way! I had the opportunity to review their Organic Seasoning, Garlic and Onion salts and was extremely impressed with the quality and flavor. It is free of additives, chemicals and heat processing. Real Salt is available in a variety of sizes including packets, shakers and bulk quantities.

Redmond is a passionate company that is dedicated to its customers and is committed to preserving its natural products. They have really been a pleasure to work with and I love that they want to make natural products accessible and affordable.

Piggy Paint Review and Giveaway (Ends 9/25)

When I found out I was having a girl I was so excited to have a little lady to do all the girly things I love doing with! Doing our nails together was definitely near the top of the list but as I thought about it I didn’t want to put all the chemicals that are in conventional nail polish on her fingers and toes knowing how much time those adorable fingers and toes would be spending in her mouth! Shortly after my daughter was born a friend told me about and I was dying to try it out!

piggypaintPicMonkey Collage

Piggy Paint is a non-toxic, hypoallergenic, virtually odorless, kid-friendly nail polish. I love that Piggy Paint is a water based polish that is chemical free and as their slogan says, it is as Natural as Mud. Not only do I love that Piggy Paint is natural, I also love the fun and vibrant colors that it comes in!

They designed Piggy Paint with wiggly toes in mind! It wipes off skin easily and dries quickly. We received the Color Me Happy Set, which includes 8 bright and happy shades of Piggy Paint in an adorable and durable box! We have so much fun doing nails. I am surprised how quickly I can paint her nails and how much she actually enjoys seeing the colors on her nails!

Piggy Paint doesn’t last as long as traditional nail polish due to the fact that it is water based and is free from all the harmful chemicals that make traditional nail polishes last longer. It dries quickly but takes longer to fully cure for full hardness. Piggy Paint recommends that you blow dry the nails for 1 minute or apply after bath and before bedtime for full hardness and durability.

We always get so many compliments on her nails when they are painted. Piggy Paint Nail Polish is available in over 30 colors. They also have many gift sets in a variety of sizes. Piggy Paint is the perfect gift or stocking stuffer for the little cutie in your life this holiday season!
