I have used these sheets before and am have now added a second set in one of the kids’ bedrooms. My son chose the black color. Just as my other set of sheets, these are soft, smooth and fit great on the bed. I was wondering if this set might come off the mattress a little easier since kids can kind of get restless in the bed while they are falling asleep, but no, these sheets fit so well that they have not come off on their own. The only time they come off is when I take them off to wash them.

The sheet sets come with the deep-pocket fitted sheet, a flat sheet and two standard pillow cases. They will not shrink when you wash and dry them, nor do they pill.  Prices start at $55. They always have 2 colors of the month priced at $55 for any size set. The regular sale price is $69.95 for any size set while Split King/Adjustable Bed specialty sizes are $85.  PeachSkinSheets really stand behind their product as they are backed by a 2 year warranty against any defects.

Lectrofan Sleep Therapy System Review & Giveaway (Ends 11/16)


lectrofan-1
Do you sleep with a fan on just for the noise? Do you have trouble falling asleep, or are you just a light sleeper in general? If so, a Lectrofan Sleep Therapy System might be just what you need.

The Lectrofan Sleep Therapy System is a white noise machine. It can be used for sleep, study, relaxation and speech privacy. It features 10 different fan sounds as well as 10 white noises. It also features a volume control as well as a timer. The sounds from Lectrofan are dynamically generated. This means that they never repeat, which means you won’t be disturbed by a looping sound.

If you have a new baby who could use some help falling and staying asleep, The soothing sounds of the LectroFan lull babies to sleep and produce a consistent, steady sound to mask noises which might otherwise wake them during naptime or nighttime. The sound of a LectroFan will soon  be part of your baby’s sleep routine, so it becomes a portable source of comfort anywhere.

lectro-fan
My son has been using this one in his room. He is a bit of a light sleeper, and is easily woken up by the sounds of others, so I thought he could really benefit from using this. Plus, he’s been using a fan in his room for this reason. That’s fine in the summer, but not so great when it gets colder. Right away, I could tell that he really liked it. He has been using it every night for bed. In the mornings when I wake him up he has it turned on to one of the fan sounds.

Not only is the Lectrofan great for using for sleep, but you can also use it to cancel out other noises. For instance, if your neighbors or someone in your house is being loud, you can simply turn up the volume to create a disturbance free area. This lightweight unit is so compact that you can bring it with you when you travel. So much easier than trying to bring a fan with you on vacation or business trip!

Buy it: The Lectrofan is available in white or black and can be purchased online.

Win it: One lucky Sweet Deals 4 Moms reader will win a Lectrofan of your own. Please enter through the Rafflecopter below. It may take 30 seconds or more to load.

NuMe Silhouette Straightener Review, Discount & Back-to-School giveaway (Ends 9/10)


Screen Shot 2016-09-01 at 3.14.15 PM

It has been my experience that a good hair straightener is hard to come by. You see, my thick, coarse hair can be problematic. Most days, I just want to get it straight without putting in a lot of effort. I don’t think that’s asking too much. There are several attributes I look for in a good straightener. Ideally, I want one that gets to just the right temperature and just kind of glides through my hair smoothly, without tugging or breaking my hair. With my hair being so thick, I need the plates to retain heat so that I can keep using it, without waiting for it to get hot again. When I get silky straight hair, in 20 minutes or less, I know I’ve found a winner. The NuMe Silhouette gets the job done as I have just described.

nume1
I was recently sent one to try out for this review. I chose the turquoise one, but they also have pink and black.  I just love it, I think it’s so pretty! Not only is it nice to look at, but it’s also a powerful styling tool. With rounded plates of pure ceramic, you can either create soft curls or pin straight tresses. With temperature controls ranging from 140ºF to 450ºF, you will be able to fine tune the heat to the unique needs of your hair.

nume 2
Other great features include negative ion technology, which conditions hair, keeping it lustrous and healthy and an ergonomic design which features a soft touch finish, and a salon-style swivel power cord.

nume3
I have found that I have been really impressed with this straightener. It would be really easy for me to tell you to believe me when I tell you that this straightener is great, but it’s one of those things that you really need to experience for yourself.  How would you like a discount?

Screen Shot 2016-09-01 at 10.46.06 PM
The Silhouette normally retails for $139, but NuMe is offering a special discount for Sweet Deals 4 Moms readers. You can get the Silhouette, Free Argan Oil (includes free shipping) for just $39 with code DUO39. You won’t be sorry. Go here for yours.

Kids Natural Calm Multi Review & Giveaway (Ends 7/7)

Screen Shot 2016-06-22 at 2.58.07 PM
When it comes to multi vitamins, our kids deserve the very best. As parents, we know that good nutrition is a cornerstone of good health and is vital for proper development. There are so many supplements on the market for kids, it can be overwhelming to decide which one is right for your family. I recently came across Kids Natural Calm Multi after doing some research of my own on kids vitamins. What I happened to be looking for at the time was a children’s vitamin that contained magnesium. Kids Natural Calm Multi delivers in that area and offers so much more. Needless to say I was super excited when they reached out to me for a review.

Magnesium is an essential mineral. Magnesium defieciency is very common these days, but often goes undiagnosed. Magnesium influences so many bodily processes including digestion, energy production, muscle function, bone formation, creation of new cells and so much more. Lack of magnesium in the body can result in a variety of conditions such as stress, low energy, fatigue, inability to sleep, headaches, anxiousness, nervousness, irritability and more. It’s easy to see why many researchers say that no single dietary factor is as critical as magnesium.

Kids Natural Calm Multi consists of 24 Organic Fruits and Veggies. They incorporate superfruits (organic pomegranate, açaí, goji and noni), fruits (apple, banana, blackberry, blueberry, cranberry, mango, orange, pineapple, raspberry, strawberry and tart cherry) and vegetables (beets, broccoli, carrot, collard greens, kale, peas, pumpkin, spinach and tomato). Special care is taken to ensure that no pesticide, herbicide or fungicide residues, chemical fertilizers or genetically modified ingredients were included in the formula.

The Omega-3 DHA & EPA in the formula comes from fish oil which is sourced from the purest wild sardine and anchovy, fished in cold, pristine waters off South America where there are significantly less environmental impurities.

kids calm multi
This was the bottle that I received for this review. It’s a good size at 30 fl oz. It will last my family a couple of months. I can actually see the minerals in it when I pour it out. Some settling does occur in the bottle, so I usually store it upside down between uses and then give it a real good shake to be sure that we’re getting all of the good stuff each time I pour it.

kidscalm glass
Kids Natural Calm Multi features an organic fruity splash flavor, sweetened with organic stevia. To use, simply mix with an equal amount of water or add to juice. I use 2 tablespoons of it, mixed with 2 tablespoons of water. It’s recommended for kids ages 4 through 13.

I know with my own kids, who can be picky eaters, it can be hard to be sure they are getting all of these essential minerals, so giving them a good quality supplement just feels like the right thing to do. If you are looking for a good supplement, give Kids Natural Calm Multi a try. Buy it.

Win it: One of you will win a bottle of Kids Natural Calm Multi. Please enter through the Rafflecopter below. It may take 30 seconds or more to load.

Control your Temp + Unlock your Performance: Win a FREE Arctic Cool Shirt (Ends 6/21)

ArcticCoolImage
What types of barriers do you encounter during a tough workout? Strangely enough, when it comes to physical exercise, it’s all in the head. We often experience mental roadblocks that tell us we’re not strong enough, not fast enough, and not good enough. This is why it feels so good when we push through and discover that we are, in fact, stronger, faster, and even better than we thought.
When you’re working out, you have so many internal barriers to overcome that the last thing you want to deal with is some kind of physical limitation. Ask any athlete who’s ever been injured, and they’ll tell you how frustrating it can be to want to perform, but simply can’t because you’re not physically able to. No one wants to be told they can’t do something.Many mammals have developed sweat glands as a means of thermoregulation, meaning they can control their body heat naturally when it’s too hot out or they’re exercising. Humans, however, have evolved to have more sweat glands then say, a dog does. When it comes to long distance running, no other animal on earth can outrun a human. We simply don’t overheat as fast as other animals, because we sweat more. Our ability to perspire does have its limits though, and only through technology are we able to break these limits.If you’ve ever encountered the problem of getting too hot when you exercise, you know the struggle. Whether it’s stifling heat, or a long and intense workout that gets your blood pumping, getting too warm during a workout can pose serious problems for you. In fact, you can truly hurt yourself if you’re not careful.

The Risks of Getting Too Hot

Aside from the unbearable feeling of being too hot, when your body temperature rises above a certain point you can put your health in danger. At that point, you might experience a number of different issues, all of which belong under the category of hyperthermia. Hyperthermia may include:

Heat syncope. This is an onset of dizziness or even fainting that occurs in earlier stages of heat exposure. This can also manifest itself in a minor way of making you feel faint or abnormally tired and “out of it”. Essentially, you lack adequate blood supply to the brain, making you feel weak, and risking passing out. Other symptoms besides weakness, include tunnel vision, pale skin, or a weak pulse. The most effective way to deal with heat syncope is to stop exerting yourself and to rest in a cool place while drinking water until the dizzy feeling goes away.

Heat cramps. Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night with a sharp pain in your calf? This is the same type of problem you can encounter in other muscles if you’re exposed to heat for too long while exercising. These muscle spasms typically last longer than the nighttime cramps just mentioned, though, and they can happen in your arms, stomach, and back. If you’re battling heat cramps, the best thing you can do is rest, hydrate, and stretch out the affected area.

Heat edema. While it’s pretty common for your feet and ankles to swell a little when you’ve been standing in one position for too long, a heat edema occurs when you’re active in a hot environment. As you’re working out, your high temperature can cause your blood vessels to dilate so body fluid moves into the hands or legs by gravity. The best thing to handle the swelling is to elevate the affected area.

Heat exhaustion. This is your body telling you that it can’t work anymore and is trying to keep itself cool. You might experience weakness, dizziness, nausea, headache, a fast heartbeat, and dark-colored urine (a sign of dehydration). If you experience this, it’s vital that you get to a cool place as quickly as possible. Drink water or some kind of beverage with electrolytes, remove excess clothing, and you can even hop in for a cool shower or bath to help lower your body temperature back to a normal state.

Heat stroke. If heat exhaustion goes untreated, then you could be at risk for heat stroke. This is when the temperature of your body raises to over 104° and it can no longer keep itself cool. Symptoms not only include a high fever, but severe headache, dizziness, a red appearance to the skin, a lack of sweating, muscle weakness, nausea, vomiting, a fast heartbeat, panting, disorientation, and even seizures. Since heat stroke can damage your heart and your brain, call 911 immediately if you see anyone experiencing these symptoms.

These issues aren’t intended to scare you. We want you to understand that getting too hot during a workout is, at the very least, inconvenient. But if you ignore these signs, they could lead to something worse.

AC  02B
If you want to push your body through the heat, what you really need is something that will keep you cool. We’re not talking air conditioning or ice water here—we mean new technology. This is exactly what Arctic Cool Instant Cooling Shirts do with its HydroFreeze X Technology. Going beyond the typical materials that merely wick perspiration away from the skin, their Instant Cooling Shirts disperse moisture throughout the fabric. The fabric then interacts with the air to cool you down, helping to regulate your body temperature.

With these shirts, your body temperature can stay in a safe range, which means that you don’t have to worry about heat cramps, heat exhaustion, or heat stroke. Arctic Cool Instant Cooling Shirts have the power to keep you healthy and safe during intense workouts, allowing you to stretch your limits and achieve more than you thought you ever could.

Win it: One of you will win an Arctic Cool Instant Cooling Shirt so that you can stay active and cool this summer. Please enter through the Rafflecopter below. It may take 30 seconds or more to load.

Keep Your Garden Organic with EcoScraps & $50 Walmart Giftcard Giveaway (Ends 5/24)

Screen Shot 2016-05-10 at 10.04.21 AM

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by EcoScraps. However, all content presented in this post represents my own opinions.

Recently, there has been a huge movement towards organic food. Many of us have taken up organic gardening as a result. Have you thought about the dirt you are using though? Is it organic? If it’s not, you should definitely check out EcoScraps, which is available at Walmart stores.

Did you know, that in the United States, we waste 40% of the food produced. That is enough to fill the Rose Bowl every day. It sits in landfills producing methane, which is 20X more harmful than CO2? Since 2010, EcoScraps has been working to be a part of the solution by reusing this waste and keeping it out of the landfills. They want to make sustainability mainstream, which I think is very admirable. Between 2011 and 2015, EcoScraps recycled 75 million lbs of food waste. They are matching that number in 2016 with projected recycling of another 75 million lbs of food waste–this time in just 12 months. To put that into perspective for you, recycling 15 million lbs of food waste is equivalent to keeping 500,000 cars off the road for an entire day! It makes a huge difference.

ecoscraps garden soil
I was excited to try out a couple of EcoScraps products recently. I really wanted to try the  Natural and Organic Moist Garden Soil and the Natural and Organic Tomato, Herb & Vegetable Plant Food.

ecoscraps dirt
I used the Garden Soil in my raised bed. I mixed it in with the existing dirt. I was a bit surprised at the size of this bag of dirt. It weighed 30 lbs. I could tell when I opened the bag that this dirt is very rich. It’s derived from a unique blend of fruits, vegetables and other organic materials.
I also really like that it’s moisture retaining. That will help save on water of the next few months.

ecoscraps plant food
I ended up planting tomatoes in this particular raised bed which is perfect for the Organic Tomato, Herb & Vegetable Plant Food I have to use. This plant food provides the nutrients you need to grow all fruits and vegetables so I can use it all over the garden, it’s not just limited to tomatoes. It features added calcium to prevent rot, which I am excited about because I have had problems with end rot in my raised beds.

ecoscraps plant food tomato
It comes in little pellets which are very easy to distribute. The bag itself has a zip up feature, to keep it fresh and dry in between uses.
