I love buying personalized items for my children. My daughter Alison always has the hardest time finding something personalized with her name on it, since her name is usually spelled ALLISON. When I surprised her with a book that was personalized just for her, she was thrilled to say the least.

When you go to order, you can type in any name you want and choose a gender. You can also choose skin and hair color. Once you are done in that section, it will let you preview what the pages of the book will actually look like with the name. You can then create a dedication to your child with your own message. Both my children received books in time for their birthdays, so I wrote a little dedication for their birthday. A really cool feature of this book is that it is available in 8 different languages!! Once you are done customizing your book, you checkout and you are good to go! You will receive a checkout confirmation and once it is shipped, a shipping notification. It is such an easy process! It did take me about 2 weeks to receive my books here in Florida. If you purchase more than 1 book you do get a discount as well. These books come in hardcover, and are beautifully illustrated. The colors on each page really pop out at you, I am super impressed with the quality of this book!

Maui Wowi Hawaiian’s Midnight Kona Coffee Review

 

I LOVE Coffee!! I drink at least 4 cups per day to stay sane! I especially love dark roast ground coffee. I have a traditional coffee maker and also a cold brew coffee maker I just received for my birthday. It was perfect timing that Maui Wowi Coffee reached out to me to see if I wanted to review their Midnight Kona coffee!

Maui Wowi Hawaiian has combined Costa Rican and Kona beans for a full-bodied, dark roast with a mild, peppery aroma and subtle hints of coriander and cinnamon. The limited time brew presents a balanced flavor with a rich, heavy body, countered by subtle hints of coriander and cinnamon. The unique, peppery aroma of this summer flavor, followed by its warm and buttery aftertaste, sets it apart from Maui Wowi’s year-round selection of gourmet brews.

The limited time brew presents a balanced flavor with a rich, heavy body, countered by subtle hints of coriander and cinnamon. The unique, peppery aroma of this summer flavor, followed by its warm and buttery aftertaste, sets it apart from Maui Wowi’s year-round selection of gourmet brews. Bags of the coffee will also be available online at Shop.MauiWowi.com.

Since I love dark roasts this one was perfect for me. It smells amazing. I love the buttery aftertaste that this coffee gives combined with the cinnamon I taste. I am a big fan of iced coffee, however this coffee I just love hot since I can taste the flavors better.  I love to pair this with a few yummy cookies for a bit of sweetness to compliment the coffee. This is definitely a unique coffee that cannot be found in coffee shops.

 

 

This coffee is available for purchase by clicking here. Retail price is $15.80 and is available in whole bean, drip grind, french press and espresso grind.

Maui Wowi can be found at many outdoor events such as festivals, farmer’s markets, swim and soccer meets, and event and entertainment venues nationwide. For more information or to locate a Maui Wowi near you, please visit www.MauiWowi.com.

Quality Dress Up Clothes by Little Adventures! Review and Giveaway @LittleAdv

 

Back in April I reviewed dress-up clothes from a company Little Adventures. They offer dress up clothes for all ages and also adults! I was so pleased with the clothes I reviewed for my son. It has been 2 months and the clothes have been washed and played in many times and they still look new! I was so thrilled when the company reached out to me for another review, this time for my 8 year old daughter.

 

Little Adventures offers a variety of dress up clothes and accessories for boys, girls and adults! All of the clothes are comfortable and not itchy. All items are made with quality fabrics and trims that are comfortable, washable and guaranteed!

The Little Adventures® Story
In 2002, when two moms discovered the lack of clothing-quality dress-ups and princess costumes available for their children, they decided take action. Jenny Harrison, mother of ten, and Heather Granata, mother of five, began their own little adventure by sewing and selling their very own dress-ups at local craft fairs. They made them soft and machine washable! They engineered them for everyday, all-day adventure! It didn’t take long for Jenny and Heather to realize the potential of their little endeavor. During their first year in business, they sewed over 2,000 dresses in Jenny’s basement…and with that, the Little Adventures brand was born.
“The kids played, and we sewed until we were deliriously tired,” Jenny said. “That was the start of a series of wonderful memories and an adventure that will never be forgotten.”
Today, Little Adventures is recognized as a leading provider of quality dress-ups in the specialty toy market throughout the world.

The Little Adventures® Promise
At Little Adventures we have a 100% quality guarantee! This guarantee begins with our brilliantly sewn dresses, and extends throughout our entire line of dress ups.
Our dresses feature a variety of fullness options such as organza overskirts, hip puffs, and peplums. Our stretch velvet is soft, and accommodates a variety of sizes.
Many of our dresses feature wrapped seams on the inside of the dress to prevent any itchy, scratchy or uncomfortable seams from irritating a child’s sensitive skin. Bodices are adorned with fancy trims and fabrics add to the elegance of the dress.
Our apparel-grade fabrics and construction, including finished seams and edges, provide optimum comfort to the child.
Our dresses are made using soft, durable, and snag resistant fabrics, keeping our dress-ups looking new at all times. We promise that your child will love them!

Vive Precision Oral Thermometer Review

As my kids are getting older and away from the baby and toddler stages, I am happy to say they can now use an old fashioned digital thermometer. When I was a kid, digital thermometers were the best thing around to take your temperature. We didn’t have the ear thermometers or the forehead thermometers, or the “all in one” thermometers. Digital thermometers were great and did the job. I was happy to review an Oral Digital Thermometer from Vive Precision and step away from my ear thermometer I have been using for 9 years.

 

 

About the Oral Thermometer by Vive Precision:

Quick reading. Guaranteed accurate.

With the Vive Precision oral thermometer, taking your temperature has never been easier. Simply activate the thermometer, place it under the tongue, and see your temperature displayed in bold font on a large, easy-read LCD screen.

Each device has been rigorously tested for accuracy and consistency. It features an energy-saving automatic shutoff function, and displays temperature in both Celsius and Fahrenheit.

Perfect for all age ranges, from babies to seniors.

 

Don’t get me wrong, my ear thermometer is great. However, it is not 100% perfect and gives me different temperatures in each ear which can be highly confusing. My 5-year-old has the habit of reaching 104 when he has a virus, so I do need a thermometer that is super accurate. Let me tell you about this oral digital thermometer and what I love about it.

First off, this thermometer is FDA approved and has been tested for guaranteed accuracy. I myself love when things are FDA approved, so right off the bat I knew this would be a great thermometer. It also has a memory recall feature which is great to keep track of past temperatures when you are tracking. It is interchangeable between Fahrenheit and Celsius for added convenience. It is waterproof! I never knew a thermometer could be waterproof, how neat is that?! The feature my husband loves most about this thermometer…..45 degree flexible tip! I remember being a child and hating having my temperature taken because it would hurt. This bends and shapes to your mouth so it is comfortable. My husband was thrilled with it when he took his temperature. The thermometer is very accurate, much more so than my current ear thermometer, and it takes your temperature within seconds…very needed with a sick child.

This thermometer also has a 1 year limited warranty. It is guaranteed to be free from manufacturing defects and they will replace or exchange the thermometer if it is.

This thermometer can be purchased at Walmart by clicking here. It was shipped to me super fast, received it in 3 days after ordering! The price is $10.49.

Even if you want to purchase this thermometer as a spare or one to keep in your luggage for vacation, it is very accurate and you cannot beat the price!

 

*I received this thermometer in exchange for my honest opinion.
