Humble Brush the toothbrush that gives back, and makes your teeth shine.


School is almost back in session so start the day off right with the right toothbrush. Choose the toothbrush that is more than just a good toothbrush. Not just cool and kind to our planet, Humble Brush is an effective and safe product with an innovative twist. Developed by dentists in Sweden, the natural feel of the Scandinavian design achieves beauty and functionality through the simplicity of its bright colored bristles and laser engraved bamboo handle.


Handcrafted, each brush addresses two major issues with toothbrushes today: leaving an environmental footprint and not everyone owns one. On a mission to help address these problems, Humble Brush isn’t just kind to the planet, they are helping others in need. Go Humble, Give Smiles – Every Humble Brush sold helps children in need participate in a comprehensive preventive oral care program.


Founded by a small group of dentists from different parts of the world, The Humble Co. was created from a shared commitment to oral health and an understanding that it’s not necessary to harm our environment just to brush our teeth properly. From Jamaica to Ethiopia, each dentist was already involved in dental outreach volunteer work.


Humble Brush, together with Humble Smile Foundation, is changing the way we see manual tooth-brushing. Now dental professionals, from dental schools to private practices, welcome the latest innovation in tooth-brushing: allowing everyone, including most underprivileged, the opportunity to brush with an eco-friendly toothbrush.

The Humble Brush is available in more than 20,000 stores around the world with major retailers including Waitrose, Rossman, Whole Foods UK, Carrefour, Douglas, Mothercare and many more. Humble Brush is also available across the US for the price of $4.99.

Peek a Boo™ Latch Keeping cats free to roam.

I have never owned a dog up until a event which made me decide having a dog would not be such a bad thing. Little did I know that owning a dog is a lot A LOT like having a toddler in the house, they get into everything, chew on things and more. So once again I needed to baby proof......dog proof the house but keep doorways open for my 3 cats so they could do their business and also get away from the dogs if needed.

The Peek a Boo™ is a product that was produced specifically to solve this problem while also allowing your cats to move throughout the house freely. The founder came up with the idea for this product because her dog developed pancreatitis from constantly eating cat poop out of the litter box, who knew. My dogs love to clean the cat box so much that we had to move it to the garage before the Peek a Boo™.

Now we have a few Peek a Boo™'s in the house. I feel better about leaving my dogs home alone with my cats. My cats can do their business and get away from the dogs while the dogs are unable to follow in pursuit and clean up whatever mess the cats should make. It is also great for my bathroom I don't know how often I would be doing my own business and the dogs swing the door wide open so the world knows that hey I am busy LOL.

Check out the Peek a Boo™ Latch in action:

These are great for keeping out most dogs and toddlers, and easy for adults to install and use.
You can purchase the Peek a Boo™ latch here.

Ball Canning Jars the possibilities are ENDLESS


Since I was young Ball Canning Jars have always been around and a part of my life. My grandmother who recently passed used Ball Canning Jars to well can items like peaches, pickles, plums, and so much more. My favorite were always her canned peaches, they would come out so good.


The best part about Ball Canning Jars is they have so many purposes. My father and his father have always used Ball Canning Jars to store screws in, they would nail the lid to a board in a shelf and then they would screw in the Ball jars with different types of nails, screws, washers, etc items for wood work in the jars.

My Aunt has always had cookie and muffin mixes which she would fancy up the Ball Canning Jars with a piece of fabric covering the top along with a small bow and the recipe card and a sweet saying for gifts for friends and family.


The Ball Canning Jars also make a great place to store pens, scissors and other art like items. I had bought a bamboo plant a few years back on clearance from Lowe's, now it has become 5 trees so I have used some Ball Canning Jars a little rock and whala I have more beautiful bamboo plants throughout my home.


Ball Canning Jars have ENDLESS possibilities, because of being clear you can paint them, decorate them and do so much to make them a one of a kind. Check out Ball Canning Jars on Pinterest and be ready for inspiration overload. Besides the ENDLESS possibilities that Ball Canning Jars offer they are also easy to locate and don't break the bank.

Ball Canning Jars have a longer neck which is why we use them for so many things and the normal Ball Jars have a wider shorter neck. But if whenever you purchase a Ball Jars product Newell Brands makes a donation to Feeding America, so you can feel good about your purchase knowing you are also doing your part to help out.

Oral I.V. and smarter way to start the day


I hate drinking water! I really really hate it, I only drink water if it is close to frozen. So I look into other ways to drink water. Coffee is not the best way to wake up in the morning nore is soda or energy drinks so what else is there that is a healthier option. With Oral I.V.  it's more of what you DON'T feel rather than what you DO.

Each morning and later in the afternoon drink one 2.2oz bottle of Oral I.V. along with 8-12oz of water, yeah you gotta drink water but really it is not that much. Your body makes good use of the water (better absorption rate) it has and the water you drink with and after consuming Oral I.V.

There are no stimulants, no flavoring other than mineral tastes, nothing that makes your mind think you need to “feel” in order for it to be working. Trace minerals in the Oral I.V. formula affect your body's hydration at the cellular level. Making you be a better you healthier you all around.

The Oral I.V. also is great for kids going back to school, great way for them to start the day and be awake and focused. You can find Oral I.V.  by visiting their site here.

You can't do Summer without Imperial Toy

It has been raining a lot here in FL we went from nothing to OMG please stop!!! So my kids and I have been trapped inside......well my mom never let me blow bubbles in the house but guess what I am grown up and if I wanna blow bubbles in my house then I am gonna blow bubbles in my house.


Imperial Toy has a lot to offer for my bubble blowing needs. One is the Blitz Bubble Blowout, which the name says it all. It is a battery powered bubble blower which requires 4 AA batteries. I placed the Blitz Bubble Blowout up on a cabinet we have and had the bubbles blowing all through the living room area, so both the kids and dogs were enjoying. If you choose to do this remember that bubble solution is slippery so make sure kids have socks or you have carpet, I needed to mop so this was my way to get the best of both worlds :)


SeaWorld has a whole new theme for at night which includes dance parties and more so this was perfect timing for the Blitz Light-up Bubble Blaster. All you need is 4 AAA batteries and you are set for endless bubbles. Enjoy hours of bubble fun with the Bubble Blitz Bubble Light Laser. Bubble Light Laser features strobing lights and a light beam! Powered by Bubble Blitz so the bubbles float higher and last longer! Simply screw in the bottle of bubbles solution, squeeze the trigger and watch as hundreds of bubbles stream continuously with light-up action. 



I love these, I have had a few and went through a few from trial and error. Do not ever set it sideways or upside down, the bubble solution will get into areas it shouldn't and you will no longer have your bubble blower. Also when done using it make sure to remove the bubbles and clean out the gun by placing the spot where the bubble solution was with a cup of water and let it cycle out, this makes for a longer lasting gun. It provides hours of play depending on the types of batteries you use, go with the more expensive brands for a better light show and blowing time. My kids enjoy bringing their blowers to SeaWorld to be a part of the show, and of course younger guest and some older enjoy following my kids around popping the bubbles. 



After all the bubble madness its time to relax and enjoy something calm and peaceful like Disney's D-Lectables. What are Disney D-Lectables? They are cute ice cream cone collectables which are of some of your favorite Disney characters like Tinker Bell, Snow White, Cinderella and more. You can collect them and change them up to make your own one of a kind ice cream cone. We received a total of 6 ice cream cones. 

You can find all these fun toys and more from Imperial Toy at your local ToysRUs and retail stores.

Mini Emojis


Let's face it Emojis are taking over the world, so much that there is a new movie being made just about Emojis. My kids are part of the growing Emojis craze so of course they look for toys, school supplies, and more to collect.

Mini Emojis by Kidz Toyz has released over 100 mini figures which kids can collect and trade with one another. The Mini Mojis™ collection includes over 100 characters, varying by level of rarity and category. Each Moji has their own unique name and personality to match. There are 12 categories of the collectibles including the food inspired Foodeez, the cute and cuddly Petite Petz, and Lil’ Stinkers, everyone’s favorite poop emoji. Round one of the collection is set to hit store shelves at the end of May at Jo Ann Fabric and Craft Stores.


My daughter got to open the pack of 6 which shows you 5 of the Mini Emojis you will get and has one mystery one. The mystery one she received in the package was a white cupcake which was not even on the packaging on the back. On the collector's guide she got a super rare, Krazy Kookie which is extremely funny because my daughter watches the daylight out of Cookie Whirl C on Youtube, who loves all things cookie and horses. The whole included Lil Comet, Sunny, Silly Sally, Hot Hugs which are common Hot Hugs and Baylee which are Rare.


We also got a blind bag which comes with 2 figures, she got a rarest of rare the Gloji Mojis, Nooky Poo! The other she got the was Happiness a common one.


Between the 2 packs a total of 8 Mini Emojis, Elizabeth's favorite was the Krazy Kookie, and Joshua's favorite Lil Comet. Which Elizabeth shared with him giving him the 2 the Lil Comet and Happiness. Now they want me to run to Walmart to purchase more. You can find all kinds of Emojis at your local retail stores and ToysRUs. These will make some great stocking stuffers when the holidays come up.

Pixel Pals


Ever since the movie came out Pixels my kids have been fascinated with Pixelated products, which is fun because I can dust off our old game systems that I have held onto and they have now been playing more of this old school games versus the new school games. I was offered to check out the new Pixel Pals by PDP products.  Light up your world with Pixel Pals; collectible pixel-art renditions of your favourite iconic characters! Pixel Pals want you to show off what you love and shine bright. Pop in a couple AAA batteries and you're all set. Fearless, just, and able to transform into multiple powerful forms.

I received four Pixel Pals to test out which worked out good because almost all my kids got one, which really the one is younger so she didn't notice she was missing out. The first one I pulled out was Mario can you believe he is 32! I am only 33 so he was born a year before me LOL, which makes since because he was a huge part of my growing up, and is still my favorite character and game of all time! Mario is the noble hero of the Mushroom Kingdom. Always willing to leap into action, moustache and all, Mario has continued to grow from his humble origins. Mario's unrivalled courage and cheerful attitude makes him the undisputed fan-favourite.


Next was Link from Zelda, what is funny is this is my husbands favorite game, he has got the boys into loving it as well. A lot of people always seem to think Link is Zelda because of the cover but Zelda is actually the princess which Link needs to save in the game. Legend of Zelda, is a trustworthy, fearless adventurer. Donning a legendary green tunic, sword and shield, the hero of time has arrived to vanquish evil and restore peace to the land of Hyrule.


Finally the last 2 they had to come as a pair because no Joker is without his Harley Quinn. That is correct my last 2 were from DC comics which my kids really enjoy. I always watched the Batman series growing up and of course all the Batman movies. I really love how they made both The Joker, and Harley Quinn as their true selves.

Pixel Pals take AAA batteries, and light up. They stand up on their own, and each pixel lights up, they are so cool and awesome for any gamer.

Pixel Pals come in a variety of styles like:

  • Mega Man 
  • Mario
  • Vault Boy
  • Vault Boy Black and White
  • Mega Man Red
  • Fire Mario
  • Luigi 
You can purchase them online here for just $14.99! I have only seen Harley Quinn on Amazon and I cannot locate the Joker so if you see him grab him up because they are going fast. You can also probably find these products in your local Comic Book store.

Don't trash it, Fix-N-Zip it!


I don't know how many times I am in a rush and go to through on a jacket and the zipper is broke or missing, or gets stuck and I break it so I can get out.

Someone out there was having the same issues as me and said ENOUGH and came out with the product called Fix-N-Zip which is everyone's Summer Travel Must-Haves, The Fix N Zip - perfect for instantly fixing the zipper on a wide range of travel items (including luggage, duffle bags, dresses, pants, skirts, handbags, golf bags, sleeping bags, and jeep windows, just to name a few.

Cute Tok Portable Baby Bottle and Pacifier UV Disinfector


When you're a new parent you worry about everything! You probably clean like you never cleaned before because you're always worrying about your newborn becoming sick.  I know a lot of mom's who are always changing out the nipples of the bottles for every feeding so the infant has a new sterile nipple. I am sure this becomes a pain in the butt after so many changes.


Cute Tok is a portable UV disinfector, which means you can go all day and not have to worry about changing a nipple or worry about not having enough pacifiers (because your baby will spit them out and they often do hit the ground) because now all you have to do is place the nipple or pacifier inside of the Cute Tok and within 4 minutes you have a clean sterile nipple or pacifier!


The Cute Tok goes wherever you go, it runs on 2 AA batteries and it has a hole on top so you can tie it to whatever and carry it on you at all times. The Cute Tok is simple to use, just place the batteries in the bottom, then place the nipple or pacifier in the container, twist shut and in 4 mins a blue light will come on letting you know your baby is safe to enjoy once again. Cute Tok can be purchased here, makes for a great baby shower gift.

Viita Undergarments that Protect from Bladder Leakage


Did you know that one in three women experience bladder leakage at some point in their life or when doing certain activities. I believe it! I know I am the lucky number 3 especially after having my kids. I do that whole walk and stop to sneeze, cough, or laugh cross your legs pose. I have been stuck in pantyliners for as long as I can remember (13 years) and it sucks.  What if I had another option to control my leaking issue.....well Viita, believes that bladder leakage should never keep you from leading an active life or affect your self-esteem and confidence­! That’s why Viita created their line of Viita undergarments with an integrated absorbing pad.


Say goodbye to disposable panty liners! By blending absorbent action, comfort, discretion, and elegance, Viita keeps you dry so you can enjoy every moment of life to the fullest. No matter which design you choose, you’ll love the extraordinary, practical benefits of Viita undergarments. The best part about Viita undergarments is they are washable which makes them reusable which saves you money. Viita undergarments are also antibacterial which means you won't have to worry about getting a UTI because of moisture being trapped like it is when wearing pads, and liners.  They are odorless which if you have worn a pantyliner or pad longer than you had planned you often find yourself running for the woods because of a fowl order starting to be released...yuck. Viita is  hygienic and again affordable which is saving you money and fuse of getting the liner to stick properly to your underwear.

I have love trying out the new Viita undergarments they provide me with a feeling of freedom, my biggest reason for loving them is before I would avoid going out if I thought it would rain because a wet liner becomes loose and can come out if your wearing shorts or go so far up your butt that your needing tweezers to remove, so not having to wear a liner I am able to go to the theme parks and not worry about water and liners going where they are not welcomed.  You can purchase Viita by visiting their website here.
