Thanks to Purex Insiders, I was able to give both of these products a try. While my youngest child is now 6, I had no problem having her use the Dial Baby Body & Hair Wash. After all, she is still MY baby. There isn’t really a smell to the hair and body wash, it just leaves her cleans and is very gentle on her hair and skin.

The Dial Kids Foaming Hand Wash was a favorite with all of my kids. I set it up in our bathroom so basically we all end up using it. It makes a very nice foam and also has a nice watermelon fragrance. It’s not overbearing and it doesn’t make me feel like a kid when I use it either. My kids will very intentionally head to that bathroom when I tell them to wash their hands so that they can use the Dial Kids Foaming Hand Wash. They really do love it.

Milford Valley Chicken Comes to the Northwest & Giveaway (2 Winners) Ends 3/29)

milford valley
A company that some of you may be familiar with, Milford Valley, is expanding to the Northwest. I was not familiar with these products until recently when I received a nice selection of their Patties, Strips and Nuggets for review.

At our house we go through a lot of chicken products, especially nuggets and strips. I was surprised to see on the box that these should not be cooked in the microwave because these are raw. They should only be cooked in the oven. I think this may have something to do with why they are so tasty. We tried all of these products and each time they came out, golden, crispy and moist. They did not disappoint. I found these to be super convenient for lunches and even week night dinners. We all became BIG fans of the Patties, so I am glad that these will be available locally, so that I can get some more.

If you are in the North West, you can get Milford Valley Patties, Strips and Nuggets at the following stores:

Food 4 Less – N. Calif.
Saar’s — WA
Sherm’s – OR
Shop N’ Kart – OR

Buy it: Milford Valley Chicken products can be purchased at select retailers. Go here to find a location near you. Right now you can get a coupon for $1 off when you buy one (1) 20 or 30 oz. Milford Valley Chicken Patties, Strips or Nuggets products.

Win it: Two of you will win $25 worth of Milford Valley chicken products. Please enter through the Rafflecopter below. It may take 30 seconds or more to load.

Primary Comfort Crib Mattress Protector Giveaway (Ends 3/18) 2 Winners

Crib Mattress Protector

My kids are well out of the crib/toddler bed stage now, but I do remember those days like they were yesterday. Especially with my first child.  I remember being on the hunt for the best crib mattress and cutest bedding as well as looking for a nice waterproof mattress pad and all the other fun baby gear a new mom can want for her baby. I remember mattress pad that we ended up with was kind of crinkly sounding it had a way of making noise when the baby moved which in turn would wake the baby. Of course, that is a problem that you can avoid in this day and age as newer, better baby products become available. In fact, to find a great Crib Mattress Protector, you won’t need to look any further than Amazon.

2

The Primary Comfort Crib Mattress Pad not only protects baby’s mattress from stains with it’s waterproof backing, but is also hypoallergenic and prevents bacteria, dust mites and mold from breeding in your child’s mattress. The high quality pad will not shrink due to it’s cotton/polyester blend and best of all, there are no crinkling noises with this pad. This will help ensure that your baby sleeps well.

While this mattress pad is easy to take on and off, it still fits nice and snug, so you don’t have to compromise between comfort and function. The durable, long lasting design will keep baby’s mattress protected from stains and will give you peace of mind with their generous lifetime guarantee.

Buy it: If you are in need of a great mattress pad, or you need a baby shower gift, be sure to check out the Primary Comfort Crib Mattress Protector. For a limited time, you can get 20% off when you shop through this Amazon link. (affiliate)

Purex PowerShot Review & Giveaway (Ends 3/7) Three Winners

PurexPowerShot

Disclosure: I received free product as part of this review. All opinions stated are my own.

Is doing the laundry a chore to you? I know it is for me. Between the amount of clothing my family of five goes through and our older washer and dryer, laundry is a MAJOR pain in the neck. It’s never completely done. Day in, day out, there is always a huge pile of laundry to be washed. There is one thing though that has made my life a little easier when it comes to doing laundry and that is the Purex PowerShot detergent. You see, it does the measuring for me.

1924_PowerShot_CMYK
That’s right. This super concentrated formula automatically dispenses the right amount of soap just by tipping it over and letting it pour. Use 1 tip for regular loads and 2 flips for large or extra dirty loads. That’s it. There is no waste or mess at all. No dropping the cap full of soap by accident into the washer either. The pouring method did feel a little weird the first time I tried it, but it did stop pouring out when it was supposed to. After you pour, you flip the bottle back up and close the lid, meanwhile, the Power Shot engine refills itself for the next dose.  It’s amazing.

Buy it: Purex PowerShot can be purchased at a retailer near you.

Win it: Three of you will win a coupon good for a free bottle of Purex PowerShot so you can try it yourself! Please enter through the Rafflecopter below. It may take 30 seconds or more to load.

UMI Children’s Shoes Review & $60 Giveaway (Ends 3/1)

Umi-logo
Over the years, I have shared with you my love for UMI Children’s Shoes. While my boys have outgrown their sizes, they are still my go to shoe store for my daughter. They have so many adorable choices when it comes to shoes for each and every season.

Screen Shot 2015-02-17 at 1.42.42 PM
For this upcoming Spring season, my daughter and I had a fun time looking over the big girls section of the UMI website to choose a pair a shoes for her. Without hesitation, she picked the Areli II in gold. She is definitely a girl who knows what she wants. These are a very fun and practical shoe. While they showcase a bit of bling, they’re not over the top. The Areli II features durable man made linings, leather lined cushy footbeds and durable, flexible outsoles. The upper part of the shoe is soft leather with velcro fasteners. They are very sturdy and well made.

We have been having some amazing Spring-like weather here, with temperatures as high as 65 this week. While that may sound cold to some of you, it’s practically tropical to me for this time of year, which means we try to go out and enjoy the sunshine as much as possible. As soon as my daughter saw the sun she asked if should could wear her new shoes for one of our days out. Of course, the answer was yes.

UMI
You can see in the picture that I ordered them a little bit big. I did that on purpose because I want them to fit her through the entire Spring and Summer season. Since we’ll still have cool weather for a short time, she won’t be wearing them regularly for a couple of months yet. I think these shoes are just the cutest things. They go with pretty much any of her outfits and they do not hurt her feet. I cannot stress the comfort factor enough here. UMI shoes never hurt my kids feet. They have always been super comfy in them. No breaking in required. Love that.

Buy it: If you are looking for a high quality, comfy children’s shoe, UMI is the place you’ll want to check out. They offer free shipping on most items and returns are free too. Click here to shop.

Win it: One of you will win a $60 UMI gift card so that you can try a pair for free!  (Giveaway is only open to US residents in the lower 48 states.) Enter to win through the Rafflecopter below. It may take 30 seconds or more to load.

Lush Decor $200 Giveaway (Ends 2/8)

Screen Shot 2015-01-24 at 9.35.27 PM
I have been on a mission lately to decorate my home on a budget and was introduced to this great site called Lush Decor. They offer quality comforters, quilts, window treatments, shower curtains and more at great prices. I had the best time looking through their site. I was so surprised to find their prices were very reasonable.

Screen Shot 2015-01-24 at 8.26.37 PM
My first stop was to check out the Quilts. There are some really nice 2 and 3 piece sets available. I ordered the set above for my daughter. Since we are getting ready to paint her room, but she is undecided on what color she wants, I thought this would be great because it will go with pretty much anything.

Screen Shot 2015-01-24 at 8.27.23 PM
I kind of have a thing for curtains. Some girls collect shoes and bags, but I seem to have a curtain addiction. I really like having Blackout Curtains in the house to keep the light out and Lush Decor makes it affordable to cover the windows. They have a huge assortment of styles and sizes available.

Screen Shot 2015-01-24 at 8.27.46 PM
If you are in need of a gift such as a housewarming or wedding gift, Lush Decor has got you covered. The Bamboo Throw, for example, would make a great gift for any occasion.

Screen Shot 2015-01-24 at 9.48.41 PM
I think my favorite section to browse through was the Shower Curtains. They have some amazingly pretty ones. It’s enough to make me wish that we used a shower curtain instead of a glass door.

Buy it: If you can use some new home items, be sure to check out Lush Decor. They offer free shipping on orders of $50 or more too! Click here to shop.

Win it: One of you will win a $200 gift card to spend at Lush Decor. $200 will go a long way on that site! Please enter through the Rafflecopter below. It may take 30 seconds or more to load.
