EZBiotics giveaway 11/8

Image
Whenever you get really sick the doctor sometimes will give you an antibiotics. And while it may help you get over your sickness, the antibiotics also kill the good biotics. So what do you do? How about trying EZBiotics. It is a Daily Probiotic Supplement that also supports immune health. You can take 2 pills a day, even if you never got sick. It is also ok for kids to take them however they should only take one capsule day, but always ask your doctor first. Same goes for if your are pregnant or breastfeeding. EZBiotics also don't have any milk or gluten.

weaning off the breast

Image
We are coming up on Logans 1st birthday. And with that I am wanting to start weaning him off. He eats lots of solids and knows how to dink out of a sippy and bottle but, he will not drink it if it is milk. Any kind of milk, breast, formula, normal milk. That is unless I give this sippy to his brother. I know right away a lot of you are giong to say, let him self wean, or dont' stop at a year or whatever. With Aiden we breastfeed until he was 15ish months.

With Logan there are a few reason why I want to stop early. And yes they maybe slefish reason but they are mine and each mom needs to decited on their own when is the right time for them. First of all he still wakes up every 5 mins after 1am and wants to feed. Now dont get me worng I still feed him, but most of the time he is not feeding as in just passifering. I would love to just give him a sippy and let him fall back asleep.

I also want to really start losing the baby fat and there are a few things I can't do while breastf…

QiPillow for back pains

Image
I love when my door bell rings later in the evening, most of the time that means I am getting something from FedEx or UPS. But when I got a rather small box when I was expecting a big one I was confused. I opened it up and saw a small camel Micro-Suede... thing! When I looked at it more I relized it was that QiPillow I was to review. I was a little lost as to why they would send me just a cloth and not the whole pillow. Then I remembered it is an air pillow.


The QiPillow is meant to give you good support while sitting. As a blogger I know that my back hurts after sitting on a chair or even the couch for a long time. I am alway grabbing a pilling and moving it around to make it work. That is one reason why I like the QiPillow, with it being air you can make is a full as you need for your back.

This is what it looked like when I took it out of the box.
I know from breastfeeding and sitting a lot that my back tends to hurt. It is very important to keep your back healthy. Because not onl…

Your Maternity Wardrobe: The Dos and Don’ts

Image
Your Maternity Wardrobe: The Dos and Don’ts During pregnancy, finding the right clothes can be a difficult task. You’ll probably want to achieve a balance of style and comfort in a range of outfits – for both daytime and evening-wear. Plus your changing body shape is likely to push your regular clothes out of the equation. When the time comes to assemble your maternity wardrobe, there will probably be a lot of things to take into account. Here are some simple dos and don’ts to give you a helping hand.
Dos Wear Maxi Dresses and Maxi Skirts Throughout your pregnancy, maxi dresses and skirts are some of the most versatile items you’ll have in your wardrobe as their lose-fitting fabric makes them ideal for a changing body shape. Adding a couple of accessories will also transform the maxi dress from a comfy day-wear item to a glamorous evening piece. Image: Liberty Gown (Blackberry) from Tiffany Rose. £249.00.

Dr. Sharp Natural Oral Care for kids

Image
When I was younger my parents alway took me to the dentist every 6 months. They wanted to instill in us a good dental hygean. Becasue of this I had very few (like 3) cavities in my whole life! Now that I have two small kids I want to do the same for them. Aiden has had some dental work due to him falling and chipping his teeth really bad. But still he has no cavities. While I will be the first to tells you that we get lazy at times and don't brush every day. We do try every hard to remember. It helps to have a good toothpaste along with a good routine.

freeze it hair, hair care product review

Image
I gave up curling my hair a long time ago. Because it never curls and mean NEVER. Or when it does I have to use so much hair spray just to get it to hold for an hour or two. But a week ago that all changed. I got this new producted called Freeze IT Hair  I came with a 12-in-one hair serum to use before you blow dry or curl it, a shine, and two types of hair spray. So I gave it a try. I showed and used the serum before blow drying. Then I strayed a little of the Surf Spray, and stared to curl it. After it was curled I used the Illuminator Instant Shine and Finishing Spray. This is what my hair looked like after.

Doc Mcstuffin coat and bag combo

I can't believe how quickly Halloween is coming up. My daughter wants to be Doc. Mcstuffin's for Halloween. I have seen some costumes in the store, but they are either too small or look cheaply made. So I decided to search for items to make my own costume for her.

I need to make a change

Image
Ever watch that movie "Matilda"? There is a line in there at the beginning where it says something like... "by the time Matilda was 5 she learn what most 30 year olds have, how to take care of herself" OK I know that's not word for word but you get the point. Yesterday as I was doing my hair for a product review, I thought about how I am 27 and I DON'T really take care of myself. Most days, ok almost every day I am just sitting on the couch in my pjs watching the kids play, and or blogging.

Put Me in the Story, kids book review

Image
Aiden is about to be 3 next month, and so we have been reading to a lot more. We want him to not only learn how to read but to have a love for readying. What a better way to get kids to love books when they are in a book. Are you not sure what I am talking about? There is this website called Put Me in the Story, where they do just that. They take your childs name and puts them into the story. Aiden loves Elmo so we got a book made called "Aiden, Elmo loves you!" I even put a picture of Aiden and I in it. So when he opens his book he sees himself and his name.

Image
Well it might be a few months away still for Logan's birthday but we are going to be doing two for him. My parents live out of state and I am so excited to have my mom coming down for Thanksgiving. During that time not only is Aiden turning 3 but we are going to have a party for Logan's first while she is here. We are hopping to do a Cake Smashing pictures. We tried to do that with Aiden but he HATES to get messy, still does. So he would not touch the cake! I can't find any pictures of it but I do have a video of it you can watch at the bottom. Now then with that being said Betty Crocker has some great cake ideas for the First Birthdays Smash Cakes.

Eterna Stainless Steel Earth Pan by Ozeri review

Image
I love that my husband loves to cook. Ok I like to try and think I can cook, but really he is the master mind in the kitchen. So we are always in need to new pots and pans. And not just any pots and pans, we need ones that are non-stick, stong and works well. I am very happy to say that Ryan has found a pan that he is so in love with, that he cooks on it 2 times every day! Becasue Ryan is getting into bodybuliding he has to eat a lot, so he needs to cook a lot. Every night when he get home from the gym he cooks some egg whites but hates our pans because they sick or are too big or too small. Its like he finds a reason to hate them. So when I got the new Eterna Stainless Steel Earth Pan by Ozeri he was not sure of it.

Spider pizza, DIY

Image
OK so I did not make the dough or the sause. But it still truned out great! I bought a pizza dough, molded it into small kid size pizza. Then added the pizza sause, and used the string cheese and black olives. Cut or peal the string cheese into strips, the cut the olives in half and then cut one of the halfs into legs. Not to hard and kids love pizza!

Teeth whitening, with Smile Sciences

Image
If you teeth are anything like mine, they are not the strighest nor the whitest out there. I have always hated my smile, and I am glad to say that next year I am going to get braces. But what do I do for the holidays coming up? You know the million of pictures that are going to be taken. I don't want to worry about my teeth being yellow on top of them being crooked. I am sure most of you know about the name brand teeth whitening strips out there. I have tried them, and really I don't care for them. Beacuse it all goes back to my crooked teeth. The stipes I feel are more ment for people who have straighter teeth beacuse the stipes don't fit to well around the crooked teeth. So what do I do? Well you use Smile Sciences! This is a teeth whitening pen.
