With the holidays in full swing, I was grateful to test and review a few of Charmin products, including Charmin Ultra Strong and Charmin Ultra Soft toilet tissue since we usually have so many parties and events at our house.

I’m not sure why but most of the holiday parties are at our house. I love entertaining and I love the holiday spirit. From the lights and decorations to the delicious cookies and desserts, it is my most favorite time of the year. You get to reconnect with people you have not seen in awhile and enjoy each other’s company. We host Thanksgiving as well as a holiday party each year plus also our big families are always over to visit.

I received the samples right before Thanksgiving and added the Charmin Ultra Soft toilet tissue to all 3 of our bathrooms that guests can use. It is extra soft and this toilet tissue characteristic is one of those things I think people “judge” you when at your home. Well, maybe it’s just me… Ha!

We are always a little cautious when we have a large group of people over since our house is over 100 years old and we are not connected to our city’s sewer system, however, with Charmin’s Clog Safe, Septic Safe guarantee, we felt comfortable at our latest holiday gathering of over 20 people. Also, Charmin has teamed up Roto-Rooter, America’s largest provider of plumbing and drain services. Roto-Rooter recommends Charmin more than any other brand and has their stamp of approval.

The rolls lasted longer than other brands we have used in the past since a little bit goes a long way. With both Charmin Ultra Soft and Ultra Soft, you can use up to 4X less toilet tissue. Wow!

As many of my Sweet’n Treats’ friends know, I am expecting Baby #2 in mid-January and we recently found out it’s a girl! We are so excited to welcome this baby girl in just a few months! And what better timing than to partner with Huggies and Target to share my experience with Target’s Baby Registry and new Huggies Little Snugglers diapers.

I received a Target gift card to purchase Huggies Little Snugglers diapers either in-store or online. I chose to purchase in-store since I am always shopping there. Who doesn’t love Target! Huggies Little Snugglers diapers were easy to find and Target had plenty in stock. I purchased 2 Jumbo Pack boxes: one box of Newborn (88 diapers) and one box of Size 1 (100 diapers).

New GentleAbsorb* Liner for a cushiony layer of protection with hundreds of tiny absorbent pillows to help draw mess away from your baby’s delicate newborn skin

For my first daughter, we tried a few brands in the beginning before realizing that Huggies diapers and wipes were what worked. We could always depend on the diapers being super soft and super absorbent even at night time. I still even use Huggies wipes even though my daughter just turned 4 this summer. They work perfectly for messy hands or cleaning up a spill on the coffee table. For our next child, the Huggies brand is one we will continue to trust.

FROM THE COMPANY:

Product Attributes:

  • Cottony-soft inside and out to help keep new baby comfy
  • Wetness indicator lets you know when it’s time to change
  • Umbilical cord cut-out to help protect sensitive belly buttons
  • Flexible, pocketed back waistband to help keep in mess
  • Unique stretchy SnugFit* Waistband provides a gentle, secure fit

 

Pricing and Availability:

  • NEW! Huggies® Little Snugglers Diapers are in grocery stores and mass retailers nationwide
  • Available in five sizes, from Preemie (up to 6 lbs) through Size 3 (16-28 lbs)
  • Suggested retail price of $11.99 for a Jumbo Pack and $22.99 for a Big Pack (diaper count varies based on diaper size)

 

For our second child, my sister wants to throw a “Baby Sprinkle” party for our close family and friends so I started a registry with Target. With a few, quick steps, I had the Target Baby Registry completed and started to add some Huggies diapers and wipes to the list.

If you are expecting, you can create your own Target registry (which should include Huggies Little Snugglers and Natural Care Wipes). Once you add these items to your registry, you can then enter to win a years supply of free diapers from Huggies Register Your Wish website by uploading your Target registry link for the Huggies sweepstakes. It’s easy to enter and who wouldn’t want free diapers for a year???

Huggies Register Your Wish is a cute feature where you can add what your wish for your child would be. I wished for help with our daughters’ college education fund. See below what other people chose…

I still have so many things that need to be done before Baby #2 is here but with the help from Huggies and Target, it seems a lot easier!

Amazon Studios is developing feature films and episodic series in a new way, one that’s open to great ideas from creators—and audiences—around the world.

I had the great opportunity to share with my three year old daughter the debut children’s series, Tumble Leaf, by Amazon Studios. We were sent a DVD screener of the first six episodes and boy did my daughter love them!

Screen Shot 2014-05-29 at 3.57.05 PM

Almost everyday in our house, you can find my daughter in her playroom playing dress-up as her favorite princesses while watching that princess movie. She does not watch much television so it was interesting to see her reaction to the Amazon Studios children’s series, Tumble Leaf. Tumble Leaf is Amazon Studios’ first kids series aimed at pre-school aged children and debuted on May 23 on Prime Instant Video. Her favorite character, of course, was Fig the Fox and his best friend, Stick, a caterpillar. She thought Stick was so cute and she wished she had one just like Fig the Fox. We put the DVD on after dinner and my daughter did not move from her playroom couch. I seriously think her eyes did not blink when the episodes were on. We watch all of them that night since they are short, which is good for toddlers. Once they were over, she asked if that was it? Really, we just watch two hours of episodes so I guess that is a good sign! Then, I got the question, “Can we watch it again?”. Overall, it was educational and my daughter was interactive with the characters on screen. I highly recommend this series to my mom and dad readers out there!

DETAILS ABOUT THE CHILDREN’S SERIES:

  • Tumble Leaf, Amazon Studios’ first ever kids series aimed at pre-school aged children will debut on May 23 on Prime Instant Video.
  • Each episode of Tumble Leaf follows a day in the life of “Fig the fox” who lives in a wrecked schooner ship by the sea and his best friend “Stick,” a caterpillar who lives in a tiny basket strapped to Fig’s forearm, as they discover adventure, friendship and love around every bend.
  • At the start of each day, Fig and Stick are eager to play and discover new things about his world, with his eyes, ears, mind and heart open to inspiration. By playing with an object that he finds in his “finding place” in each episode, he learns about science, critical thinking and the world around him.
  • Tumble Leaf was created by Drew Hodges and award winning studio Bix Pix. The talent behind the characters includes Christopher Down as “Fig,” Landon Clay as “Hedge,” Addie Zintel as “Pine,” Brooke Wolloff as “Maple” and Gary Littman as “Ginkgo.”
  • Tumble Leaf, like all of Amazon’s children’s programs, is designed to develop creative thinking in children and has been tested to ensure they achieve this goal. Amazon’s goal is to inspire lifelong learners and provide children with the skills that will help them find personal and professional satisfaction in their future.
