Thermacell Backpacker

If you hate DEET almost as much as you hate mosquitoes, you’ll love this new way to fight skeeters. The miniscule bug-repellent device is the size of an ultralight backpacking stove and attaches to the fuel canister you’re probably already carrying in your pack. Like other Thermacell devices, it emits a 15-by-15-foot zone of bug protection—using a synthetic copy of a natural repellent found in chrysanthemum plants—that testers said was effective within minutes of igniting. The small, enclosed flame is incredibly fuel efficient; you'll able to use half a 4-ounce canister to cook dinner and breakfast, and still create a bug-repelling force field for five hours. (Thermacell claims up to 90 hours of run time on a 4-ounce canister.) This is the perfect gift for an outgoing dad, and hey if you are on the trip you all win.

Edushape My Soft World Farm


My daughters had the chance to try out Edushape My Soft World Farm. The My Soft World Farm is for ages 12 months and up. My daughters who are ages 5 and 7 were excited to open it up and see what it was all about.

My daughters both like that it included animals and blocks, which what made this set great is that the blocks were sturdy but yet if thrown at a sibling would not knock out or hurt the other. Yeah that happens often in this house of 5 kids. The only issue with this set is when older kids are playing with it, it really is only good for one kid at a time. The My Soft World Farm comes with 29 pc which are made up of farm animals and blocks. The set helps tune your child's fine motor skills, logic and reasoning, hand eye coordination and gross motor skills.


Because of the material the Edushape My Soft World Farm is made of you can also take into the tub. The kids can spend hours playing in a nice quiet environment and you do not have to worry about anyone being hurt, lead poisoning, choking, etc because they are a heavy duty, but soft foam.


Includes: Edu-Foam Wood-Like blocks and color blocks, plus Edu-Foam farmers, animals, trees and other farm themed accessories. Safe, Soft foam that looks like Real Wood! My Soft World Farm 29 pc set includes Wood-Like and Color blocks, People, Animals, Tractor, Trees & Bushes. 1¾" (3.5 cm) thick. Packaged in a “tool box” style reusable container for easy clean up.

You can check out Edushape's store online here where you can find the perfect toy which can help tune your child's skills, for an earlier better education.

Don't get dehydrated this Summer use LifeStraw


We are a very outdoors family, when my 2 oldest were younger we had a chance to visit CO. Well because of the time difference from FL to CO our family was up early and we decided to head out to Hanging Lake.  Because of leaving so early and not really thinking we only had 2 bottles of water, thankfully there was a stream down the side of the mountain as we hiked up, but we did risk catching something from drinking the water, thankfully we didn't but I never wanted to be in that situation again.

The LifeStraw is a wonderful device which filters out harmful bacteria without having to boil water, you just stick it in the water and drink! The LifeStraw Steel is ideal for hiking, backpacking, camping and travel. The 2-stage filtration process removes bacteria and protozoa and reduces organic chemical matter and chlorine.

You seriously, just stick the Lifestraw Steel into the water source and drink like you are using a straw. The filter inside the Lifestraw cleans the water INSTANTLY! When at the park I see a lot of mom's who freak out about their kids using the water fountains, with the LifeStraw Steel no more freak out! You can purchase it here.

I have been drinking a lot of soda because at the theme parks this is my cheaper option, but now there is a new LifeStraw it's the new LifeStraw Go - now with a carbon capsule that reduces chlorine, bad taste and odor! Available in 5 colors. Which makes me fill up water more often, which I would avoid because of them sometimes just looking to nasty around the spout.

LifeStraw has a  Follow the Liters program, for every LifeStraw product sold, a child in a developing country receives clean, safe drinking water for an entire school year.

The LifeStraw features:
Uses replaceable activated carbon capsule to reduce bad taste, chlorine and organic chemical matter for up to 100 liters (26 gallons).

Uses advanced hollow fiber membrane technology (0.2 microns) to remove waterborne bacteria and protozoa up to 1,000 liters (264 gallons)

Removes 99.9999% of waterborne bacteria (>LOG 6 reduction), including E-Coli

Removes 99.9% of waterborne protozoan parasites (>LOG 3 reduction), including Giardia & Cryptosporidium

Reduces turbidity, filtering down to 0.2 microns

Available in 5 colors

BPA Free Tritan Bottle

Replacement hollow fiber membrane cartridges available

Replacement carbon capsules available

Does NOT use iodine or iodinated resin

I have already started to purchase one LifeStraw for each of my family members because this summer we will be going outside a lot more so I want to make sure we never run out of fluids and with LifeStraw we will be set. You can learn more about LifeStraw here.

Gluten Free Namaste Foods #Giveaway!


When looking for foods I often look for healthier options and some things I enjoy are gluten and allergen-free because my kids seem to act a little crazier when they eat to much of these items. Namaste products are all 100% dedicated gluten and allergen-free!

Namaste pasta meals, grab‘n go soups, pantry staples, baking mixes and coating mixes are free from the Top 8 Food Allergens. I was able to pick out a few samples in which to try out and feed to my family.


The first I requested was the Waffle and Pancake mix, I chose this because if I do cook I am often making one or the other for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I love to play with mixes I often add fruits, syrups and more to give them flavor because most mixes just lack. These waffles and pancakes are absolutely delicious! They win the taste test over any wheat waffle and pancake mix on the market. They are light and fluffy with a hint of pure vanilla. What is really amazing to me, is that they are sugar-free, too, which how can you beat that!?!  I did let my kids put on syrup if they chose to but most just ate with butter.

The 2nd I asked for was the Organic Dark Chocolate Brownie Mix. Just because you are eating better or have a diet you have to go off of doesn't mean you cannot enjoy the good things in life. These Organic Dark Chocolate Brownies are fudge filled delicious goodness. What I really enjoy about the Organic Dark Chocolate Brownies is that I can actually pronounce and I know what the ingredients are Organic cane sugar, organic brown rice flour, organic cocoa (processed with alkali), organic tapioca starch, organic arrowroot powder, citrus fiber and salt. They bake thick and taste amazing! I enjoy them with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Finally I tried the Rice Milk mix from Namaste Raw Goods. The Rice Milk Powder has a slightly sweet flavor, which makes it great for baking. I love that I can replace things without my kids noticing I am actually feeding them healthier food. I also sometimes mix a little for my cats, which makes them go nuts wanting more, but its a special little treat for them. It comes in a resealable pouch also, so I don't have to worry about kids hitting and it dumping out.

I really enjoyed the Namaste products and look forward to trying more of the many products offered from the brand. You can visit Namaste here and see all the other great products.


Enter to win: Namaste reusable grocery tote bag full of one Pasta Meal, Baking Mix, Coating Mix, Soup Cup and information.
