I have been using PURE Glass Bottle the past few days as part of my New Year’s resolution. My resolution was to drink more water through out the day and boy have I been buying a lot of bottled water since January. BUT – I am so thankful for this review for PURE where I was given an Explorer style (25 oz) reusable glass bottle that I can take anywhere.Screen Shot 2014-03-06 at 4.38.06 PM

The PURE glass bottle is very difficult to break because of the exterior clear safety coating where the coating strengthens the bottle. The bottle itself is very heavy duty and with the clear coating, it keeps all the glass and liquid adhered inside the bottle if the bottle does break. Glass makes your drink taste better and keeps your beverage colder longer. Perfect for in the car, going to the gym or at home working in my office since there is no mess of sharp glass shards and liquid to clean up if it did break. I have a 3 year old at home and cannot count how many times she has dropped a glass of juice or milk on the floor!

PURE Safe-Shell Glass Bottle is the only clear coated reusable glass bottle on the market with a permanent coating. Other glass bottles have coverings and sleeves that need to be removed. Some other glass bottles have 4 and 5 parts to clean and assemble; parts that can be lost or misplaced. The PURE Explorer only has 2 parts; the bottle and the cap.

I love the fact that it is convenient at home where I can fill up the glass bottle with filtered water and go about my day. My favorite parts are spending less money on plastic water bottles as well as helping the environment. In a normal day, I can drink quite a few bottles of water and this doesn’t even include my husband and daughter. With the PURE reusable glass bottle, I can fill the bottle up and not worry about recycling the plastic bottles or running out to the store to buy more since we ran out. The image below is from PURE’s website where it compares glass vs. plastic and it amazes me how much we help by drinking from a reusable bottle.

I must admit, I hate doing laundry! I don’t mind many of the chores that need to be done around the house, but laundry is the worst. I always seem to forget about the the clothes in the dryer since it takes so long for them to dry… I go about other tasks and finally remember later that night. Oh well…I guess I’ll have to de-wrinkle them tomorrow.

I had the opportunity to review EveryDayWillow’s ReusaWool Dryer Balls this weekend when I normally wash and dry the laundry. ReusaWool Dryer Balls are the natural solution for softening your clothes without chemicals. They help your clothes tumble dry faster by increasing circulation and can reduce drying time by up to half. Plus, no harsh additives that can irritate sensitive skin from dryer sheets. JACKPOT!

Three balls come in a box and you simply toss all three balls in the dryer with the wet clothes and press start. That’s it! No need to remove them when the laundry is done – just reuse for the next time. So I took the balls out of the box and added them to the wet laundry. They looked like white tennis balls but are made out of natural wool felt. They also come in 15 different colors that won’t harm your clothes. The natural fibers pick up a small amount of moisture at the beginning of the cycle and release it throughout the drying process. This creates a more even dry and reduces static.

The laundry usually takes over an hour or so to dry completely. The box and reading material says to check your clothes sooner than you’re used to since the clothes will dry faster than expected. And they were right. Just about a half an hour into the drying time, the clothes were almost completely dry! I put the dryer back on for another 10 minutes and the laundry was ready to be folded.

I had the opportunity to review the new e-book: The 25 Hottest Christmas Toys of 2011.  My husband and I have been lucky so far during the holiday season since our daughter is only 15 months old and does not realize yet that she “wants” certain toys but I was surprised to find one of the toys we were planning on buying this year is one of the top toys for infants and toddlers.

The Top Christmas Toys 2011 was very easy to read and browse through since it is categorized into sections:

  • Infants & Toddlers
  • Preschoolers
  • Boys
  • Girls
  • Specialty Toys
{From the e-book}  If you need to know the top 25 Christmas toys of 2011, you’ve come to the right place. This ebook is here to give all those parents that are struggling to find that perfect gift your child really really wants. The toys in this book are all award nominations at the very least and each category has the winner of the year.

These toys are chosen due to product sales and overall child rating. Just to make it easier for those parents on the run… like myself… I have the ebook broken into 5 categories. Infants/Toddler toys, preschooler toys, boys toys, girls toys, and specialty toys.

Each toy has a description and a couple reviews about that product. All of this information was found through Amazon, Walmart.com, and some popular toy blogs. This information is to give you a better idea of what you will be buying your kids.

If you are interested in purchasing one of the top 25 toys, click the title link for that toy. You will be brought to Amazon.com. This website will have the product for purchase and more information about the product just in case you haven’t completely made up your mind.

With a one year old at home with me all day, I rarely have a chance to take a bubble bath let alone a shower to wash my hair.  I had the opportunity to review QwikShower Wipes and they were a lifesaver!

 

{About Qwik Shower Wipes}  QwikShower is a small family owned business in Olney, Maryland that specializes in wipes to “freshen up anywhere, anytime”.  The wipes measure 10″x12″ and are conveniently single wipe packaged to carry in your purse, gym bag, locker, back pack or car.  The wipes are moistened, single use, thick disposable towels when you do not have the time or location to take a shower.

The idea started in a local high school where kids could not shower after gym class or sports practices.  What a great alternative that can be quickly opened and used. And what even better is QwikShower can help with fundraisers for any organization.

 

{Product Review}  I have to admit that I wish I had more time to take care of myself since having my baby but all moms make scarifies to make sure their little ones are taken care of. I tried QwikShower wipes the other day when I had to take my daughter to her doctors appointment and did not have time to jump in the shower.  The packaging was easy to open the disposable towel was a lot softer than the baby wipes I normally use to freshen up.  The towel was a nice size and the whole process took only a few minutes.  I air dried quickly and I was then ready to get dress. Overall, I would recommend QwikShower wipes to my family and friends.

 

{Giveaway Details}  Our friends at QwikShower wipes have offered a full size 6-pack of QwikShower wipes to one of my luck readers.  So enter below using Rafflecopter and Good Luck!

About a week ago I received a lovely hand-carved olive wood cross in the mail from My Caring Cross. It came packaged in a burgundy velvet bag with an authenticity card. It also came with a cream bag and personalized card to show how Caring Crosses could be used as a wedding favor.

The olive wood cross is soft and smooth when held in your hand and comforting to the touch. Each cross is unique with its’ wood grain pattern. It brings a sense of calmness to our often busy and hectic lives. I will pass my cross onto my mother to share the story and the excellent craftsmanship to others. She has been going through some tough patches where this cross will be helpful.

{A Little Bit About the Product}  Caring Crosses are individually carved from a single unique piece of beautifully grained olive wood pruned from the olive trees around Bethlehem the birthplace of Jesus. Christians have been carving crosses like this for hundreds of years, originally for pilgrims and more recently tourists visiting the Holy Land. Each craftsman receives a fair price to support their family and Christian community. Caring Crosses are designed to fit comfortably into the palm of your hand as an aid to prayer or meditation. Ideal as your spiritual companion for easing children’s fears, comforting worries and stresses of adults and focusing the prayer of the sick and elderly.

{The Story of the Cross}  Issa is a Christian living on the outskirts of Bethlehem and has been carving crosses and religious items his whole life to support his wife and three children. Twenty years ago, Issa was met on a visit to Bethlehem and began importing his olive wood handicrafts. With the decline in Bethlehem tourism, Issa and other Christian Artisans are struggling. My Caring Cross aims to support them by providing a market for olive wood crosses direct to Christians in America.

{Holiday Specials}  The hand-carved olive wood cross would make a wonderful gift for the holidays and a perfect stocking stuffer for family and friends. My Caring Cross has two specials on their website until Christmas.  8 Caring Crosses delivered Priority Mail within the US for just $36 or $4.50 per cross …or 2 Caring Crosses delivered within the US for $12.

{Giveaway Details}  My Caring Cross would love to give one of my blog readers the chance to win a Caring Cross of their very own!  This contest is open to the US and will end on December 8, 2011. Thank you to My Caring Cross and Good Luck to my readers!
