DYNAMIKOS

I always find it nuts that when summer is over everyone thinks the sun just magically goes away... I mean I know I live in FL but the sun is always gonna be there and I wanna make sure that everyone in my family is protected year round. That is why  DYNAMIKOS  sunglasses make a great gift for dad!

MISSION's

My husband works out on a golf course and we also live in FL which is pretty much hot all summer long. MISSION has saved our butts more than once with some amazing products, products which would make for a great Father's Day gift. MISSION products are affordable and can help to cool your dad down throughout the summer.

SnapPower

I love these products, I almost have one on every light socket in my house, they are simple to install I had my 6 years old do one, and now she is Snap Happy. The SnapPower GuideLight 2 Plus ($16 to $19 depending on the quantity purchased) is an automatic nightlight that is built into the cover plate of your power outlet. It blends in with its surroundings, and, unlike traditional nightlights, always leaves both outlets available for use. The product features a diffused light bar and provides smooth ambient lighting. No more kids (or guests) leaving the bathroom light on all night, giving you more time to sleep! This product is also available for GFCI outlets (found in bathrooms and by kitchen sinks).

The SnapPower USB Charger 2 (retails for $19 to $23 depending on quantities purchased) features two USB ports, fast charging (2.1 amps), a slim look and easy installation while keeping outlets free from bulky power adapters when charging phones, tablets and other mobile devices. This one is my personal favorite because now with everyone owning phones, tablets, etc we are always fighting over who gets to plug in.

Both these products from SnapPower make a great gift for dad and are again easy to install. Check out all the products from SnapPower here.

B-hyve

My husband loves to keep our yard looking alive, but to do so it means watering, which sometimes we forget to turn it off. The B-hyve has come out with 2 products which can make leaving on the hose a thing of the past. The smart Orbit B-hyve Hose Faucet Timer (starting at $69) allows consumers to automate, manage and optimize the entire watering process all from their phones or using the device¹s smarts. Whether that is potted plants, container gardens, and lawns, B-hyve Hose Faucet makes it easy to control. It is the first and only smart, EPA WaterSense-certified faucet timer on the market, saving water while maintaining a lush landscape managed from anywhere with a cellular or internet connection.

Working similarly to the hose faucet timer, the Orbit B-Hyve (starting at $99) is for homeowners with an in-ground sprinkling system. It can be controlled with a smartphone, Amazon Alexa or on the controller itself. It is truly a plug-and-play that is easy to install and leave alone. Both of these making great father's day gift that will keep your dad's yard looking great and his peace of mind when wondering if he forgot to turn off, a thing of the past.

Hartz® Home Protection™ Quilted Plus™ dog pads


Hartz® is a well-known name in our family, we have 2 dogs and 3 cats and well they can sometimes get sick and so on, so we turn to Hartz® to take care of our pets needs. Hartz® recently came out with  Home Protection Quilted Plus dog pads. Although I do not have any puppies anymore my pit bull still will pee inside our house when we sleep or if the grass is wet, which living in FL is often during the summer. 

Like most animals he has a favorite spot in which he always seems to pee when we are not looking, so thanks to the new Hartz® Home Protection™ Quilted Plus™ dog pads, I have been able to place them in his favorite spot and not have to worry about clean up now that I have the pads in place. The pads absorb everything he dishes out, I have not once had to clean up under the pad because it is locked in so well all I need to do is pick it up and trash it. 

I have found other uses for Hartz® Home Protection™ Quilted Plus™ dog pads, I also sadly have a cat which is older in age and recently has had issues using the cat box so I have placed some around his box for when he just can't get all the way in and the pads catch all the overspill. I also have used them for when my kids are sick and cannot make it to the bathroom in time, although they often will it is nice to know my bed is protected if they don't. 

Along with being super amazing at soaking up whatever your animal, child or whatever you use them for dishes out, the Hartz® Home Protection™ Quilted Plus™ dog pads lock in odors! That's right no stink so unless I physically go over to where I have the pad placed and look at it I would never know my pet has used it, how great is that! 

You can find the new Hartz® Home Protection™ Quilted Plus™ dog pads at your local pet stores and most major retail stores, along with many other great products from Hartz®.

Amazing books about Bigfoot and places around the world for Kids!

I am always on a search for fun but also educational books when it comes to selection for my kids. I was lucky enough to have a chance to review the following books Bigfoot Visits the Big Cities of the World and Bigfoot Goes on Vacation. As soon as these books arrived my kids were already sitting quietly and looking for all the fun objects in the searches they have throughout the book. The book reminded me of a classic favorite Where's Waldo, but with way more to find, they have you search for Bigfoot, footprints, artist, cats, foxes, and much more which there could be 1-5 of each that you have to locate. 


What makes the books educational is before each hunt is a bunch of easy to read fun facts about the various locations in which Bigfoot is visiting. I was born in FL and I still am stuck here, anyhow I have always called Bigfoot just that Bigfoot but my husband told me that in FL it is called the Skunk Ape I seriously thought he was full of but even in the book it points out that in FL that is what he is more known as....go figure. It also has other names in which Bigfoot goes by around the world like Yeti which is from Russia which I never knew where it came from I just thought was another fun name for him. A lot of the names for Bigfoot I never heard of like Woodwosa which is England and since living here in FL where we have a lot of visitors you would think I would have heard of it at least once. 


The books are part of a series which include another 2 books, Spotted at Famous Landmarks, and Goes Back in Time.  They are very well illustrated and keep your child's interest. The pages are simple to read with not overwhelming the child or adult who is reading to their child. I enjoy that they teach fun facts and history which keeps the child wanting more! My kids all read through and the books and still come back for more when they walk by. They really are the first books that my kids have all had an interest in. You can purchase these great books on Amazon by clicking here


ABOUT BIGFOOT VISITS THE BIG CITIES OF THE WORLD: 

Sharpen your search and find skills by locating BigFoot at his favorite metropolis. It won't be easy! BigFoot is visiting ten major cosmopolitan destinations, from the Big Apple and London to Paris, Athens, Tokyo, Toronto, and more. This handsome hardcover book presents each urban oasis as an immense two-page visual puzzle, full of teeming people and creatures. Your task is not only to find BigFoot and his legendary footprint but also more than 500 other unusual and sometimes unexpected personalities and objects. Fun facts and pictures accompany each scene to help you learn more about the world's most popular cities. 



ABOUT BIGFOOT GOES ON VACATION:

BigFoot is enjoying his holiday in ten different ways, from deep sea diving and joining a balloon festival to taking a cruise, going to the beach, visiting Yellowstone National Park, and more. This handsome hardcover book presents each getaway as an immense two-page visual puzzle, full of teeming people and creatures. HAPPY FOX BOOKS are for children and all of those who enjoy beautifully illustrated books. ABOUT D.L.Miller: As with Bigfoot, D.L. Miller is a bit on the reclusive side, rarely seen in public, spending most of his days sketching from his studio located amongst the mighty oak trees only found in the deep dark woodlands far off the beaten path. After spending decades learning the habits of the elusive bipedal humanoid, he has finally agreed to share his illustrative journals that capture the sightings of this larger-than-life creature that has mystified generations. Connect with Fox Chapel Publishing on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook and learn more about the fun, educational, and friendly BigFoot at ifoundbigfoot.com. BigFoot Visits the Big Cities of the World and BigFoot Goes on Vacation are now available for purchase in hardcover via Amazon and wherever fine books are sold.

New Elmer's® Glow in the Dark Glue



I have my 5 who are always asking me to make slime and well we did it once with Elmer's School Glue and Borax. This time we got to make glow in the dark slime, that's right GLOW IN THE DARK! Now in stores, you can purchase Elmer's Glow in the Dark Glue. The new glue comes in 3 colors pink, blue and greenish yellow. 


When I got the glue the first thing I did was placed it in my window which gets sun most of the day for a supercharge glow :D Then I proceed to use the bottle of pink Elmer's Glow in the Dark Glue mixed with Tide, ( I bought the tiny bottle from Dollar Tree ) after mixing I also added some shaving cream which I heard can make it fluffy and it did :) After I made the slime I put it outside again in the sun. 

I am happy to report that with all the extras I placed in the slime that Elmer's Glow in the Dark Glue worked great! My kids were all like it is not gonna work blah blah blah, and all ran to the bathroom and turned out the light for a shock of OH WOW! How cool is it that now we can have slime that glows without having to pay a lot out of pocket, plus it is kinda educational, learning how to measure and mix etc, for the perfect slime. I will say though of the two times I made slime I would go the Borax route again, Tide made a bigger mess, smells great though LOL. 


Anyhow just think of all the fun things you can do with Elmer's Glow in the Dark Glue, make a fun sign, decorate some of your light switches in the kid's room so they glow at night for an easy to find the switch. Add some to your outside decor for fun effects at night and more, the possibilities are endless! Check out the fun list of projects that Elmer's has for you to try with your kids by visiting http://elmers.com/ You can find the all new Elmer's Glow in the Dark Glue at your local retail and craft stores.
