Greenie Two Steps

January 31, 2010
Greenie 2 Steps is the cutest whimsical wallart.  There are so many bright and vibrant colors in with each character they are sure to grab your childs eye and hold it for a long time.  The whimsical wall art that is both educational and eco-friendly was carefully designed and produced by Greenie2Steps.  It is very versitile and can be installed on almost any clean and smooth surface which includes walls, ceilings, windows and more.  Best of all if it ever gets dirty it can be cleaned simply by using some water.  It is safe & non-toxic, they print on fabric with safe and eco-friendly ink then they add a safe, water-based laminate and coating.  The adhesive on the back that allows you to put the sticker up and remove it hundreds of times is even water based how cool is that.  You can remove the wall sticker without worrying about it marking the wall or leaving a sticky mess.  Best of all though is that they are reusable and you can move the adhesive from wall to wall and the art will not lose its sticking ability even after over 100 applications.
Putting the wall art up was so easy as well.  You pick the wall you want it on and clean it with water, you then dry it off with a clean cloth.  You are asked not to use any cleaners on the surface prior to applying the wall arts.  Then you take the art out of the package and lay it flat for 30 minutes to allow it to come up to room temperature.  Then you peel the back off the wall art, saving the backing and placing it back into the eco-friendly tubing for future use.  You then stick the top corners first and then smooth from the center out to get a nice smooth spot.  To change the location you slowly peel it from the surface and reapply.
Greenie 2 Steps has art in so many cute charecters like I said earlier. We received the Greenie and Friends Art Print priced at $99.99. This print has Greenie, her younger brother Garrett, Geraldine the Giraffe, Lenny the Lion and Taj the Tiger.  We put it in Holdens room because he had a bare spot above his door that this fit perfectly.  It looks so cute in there and somehow it just completes Holdens room.  The installation really was as easy as it says on the sight although I cannot make a personal comment on moving it because I love where it is and do not plan on moving it.
You can order the entire line of friends like we received or you can purchase the art prints seperatly starting at $24.99 each depending on the size you want.  You can get personalized postcards for your child, or stickups that is simple the charecter with no backgrounds.  Another great thing they have is Eco-murals which shows Greenie and friends in a variety of scenes.  You can choose one that he charecters are all already on or you can choose an interactive one and place the charecters where you want them.
I would recommend Greenie 2 Steps to anyone redecorating your childs room, nusery or play area.  I think the mural shown above would even work for a childs bathroom. 
Thank you to Greenie 2 Steps for this great product to review.

I just have to share with you a site I found with the cutest shirts.  It is called Justjen.com and she makes custom shirts.  there are many styles and types of shirts to choose from and 20 designs you can have put on the shirt. 

You go on and pick your shirt type, color and size and then the fun part you get to personalize it.  You can create a design on both the front and the back of the shirt and the design is put on with Genuine Swarovski Crystal rhinestones. 

If I were to order a shirt from her I would get a non-fitted one in pink that says Jabbering Jessi on the front with my URL on the back and have the crystals be in white or jet black, although I do have to say in looking a the baby & girls section I love the cupcake pants with the cupcake top.  Here let me show you:

Breeze Comfort Bras and Sports Bras

January 30, 2010
Normal bras are padded with man made materials that stop the evaporation of sweat.  This means that you end up having a wet spot in the cup area, which as any woman can tell you really sucks.  Breeze Comfort has come up with a product that will prevent this.  The Ventipad, the Ventipad is a revolutionary invention in bras.  Nothing like a traditional bra pad, the Ventipad has holes in it for ultimate breathability while wearing the bra which allows for maximum passage of air and mositure from against the chest.
Moisture wicking fabric alone in traditional, padded bras is not enough to create a truly breathable, high performance garment. The patented ventilation channels in the Ventipad enables increased air circulation to occur which allows for perspiration to evaporate more quickly. The result is less moisture and heat, making the wearer experience more pleasant.

Ultimately, staying cool and dry is the key to staying comfortable. The combination of the VentipadTM technology with existing breathable and moisture wicking fabric enables Breeze Comfort bras and sports bras to be truly breathable. Whether your activity level is low, medium or high impact, you will discover that Breeze Comfort bras, sports bras, and sports tops offer the ultimate in comfort, style and support.

Breeze comfort offers sports bras, sports tops and regular bras all with the Ventipad technology.  Now I unfortuantly was given the opportunity to review this but was unable to because after four kids my breasts are slightly larger then normal lol.  I do know though that there are going to be a few other bloggers testing this and writing the review on it, I will link you all to them as their reviews go up this way you can see what people who actually tested it.  The bras fit from a 32A up to a 42D and are super cute, I am hoping when I lose all the weight I am planning on I will fit in one and can test it for you.

They have a 100% satisfaction guarantee you can return unworn unwashe garments back to them with the tags still on if the item you receive is not what you were expecting within 30 days.  Breeze comfort offers free shipping on all orders over $50.00 US or International. 
The sports bras costs $39.99 for each of the four styles.  The sports top is regular $45.99 and is on sale now for $39.99.  The bras are all currently priced at $24.99 and there is regular as well as pushup style bras.  I will for sure be recommending these bras to my friends and family when they mention they are on the never ending bra search which it seems so many are.

EXCITING NEWS:  Breeze Comfort is in the midst of having a valentines sale and if you purchase any sports bra you get a free regular or pushup bra, that is an awesome deal.  Sale ends February 14th so hurry and get yours today.

Nads Hair Removal Cream

January 29, 2010
I am always on the lookout for hair removal products to make my showers faster (refer to my I had a bath post).  Shaving is simply too long for my monsters and Nair stinks to high heck and frankly it irritates my skin most of the time.  I recently was told about Nads hair removal cream and will for sure be on the hunt for this to give it a shot.  Now while I cannot tell you about my actual experience with the product I can still tell you what I have read about the product.
Nads hair removal cream removes unwanted hair and keeps it gone for weeks at a time, I know when I do have time to shave that the hair is generally back in a few days and so annoying because then again the cycle of finding time to shave starts again.  It also leaves your skin smooth and features a powerful triple-action formula that removes coarse and dark hair.  The cream goes on with a simple foam head so the cream stays on the hair on your legs but not on your hands. 
To use you put the cream on the area to be treated and let stand 5 minutes then wipe off, hey I can do that and the kids can keep me in their eyesight.  Now I have super sensitive skin so anything like this is always a concern to me but they have a cream available with natural skin protectors like honey and chamomile in it which is what I would totally go for.
Nads also does more then just your legs they also have a facial hair removal cream for those unlucky people who have unwanted facial hair.  More then just hair removal cream they also have hair removal wax strips for people brave enough to wax (I am too chicken of the pain so this is not for me).  They also have products for men such as a mens handsfree cream, mens hair removal strips and so much more. 
Now I am on the hunt so if you see Nads in a store near you please share with me where so I can go buy it too, although I will be ordering a bottle online to start out anyhow.

I had a bath tonight

January 29, 2010
Haha ok I know the post title is weird but honestly in this house I get to shower long enough to wash my hair and me and then I have a kid that is in dire need of something.  No matter how settled I can get the kids it is like they have built in mommy tracker lol do the make mommy GPS where the kids can do some gps real time tracking and know exactly where I am at all times?  If I even think bath Holden starts crying, Maddisyn wants my attention or the boys start fighting.  So tonight I said enough I told Lee I was going to lock the bathroom door, have a hot bath and would not be out until the water was cold or I was good and ready whichever came first.  I was lucky enough to be in there relaxing and reading a book for about an hour and when I got out the house was still standing the kids were all in bed although not sleeping they were in bed so thats something.

Once i got out of the bath I sat down on my computer to blog but I think I forgot my brain in the bathtub and was sure I was not going to get anything remotely sensible written tonight.  So instead I started playing with my blackberry that I just got, which I am totally in love with btw, but then I spent an hour trying to deal with mobile connection manager and email setups and blackberry messanger and ugh now I know why I hate getting a new cellphone and although I wish I would have gotten an Iphone this will do until I can afford to buy one, or the nice people at Apple ask me to review one for them.  Then I started talking a friend about manufacturing in mexico and USA and all that stuff (I have had this post before), needless to say we left off agreeing to disagree and left it at that.

All in all I had a very relaxing evening now I am off to bed to get some much needed sleep and hope Holden sleeps all night tonight, he has a nasty cold and my poor boy has been hacking his little lungs out.

Night all, see you tomorrow I have some great reviews I want to get posted for you all tomorrow.

Pampers Cruisers with Drymax and Team USA

January 28, 2010

I feel very honored to be able to share this information with you.  For many U.S. Olympic athletes, bringing home a medal is not just their dream – it’s their family’s dream. Pampers is working with two medal contender athletes – U.S. Olympic goldmedal speed skater and dad to baby Hadley, Chad Hedrick; and skeleton World Champion and mom to toddler Lacee, Noelle Pikus-Pace – and both of their families – to share their Vancouver experiences from their babies’ point of view. Photos and videos will be uploaded daily to Pampers.com I cannot wait to see them.

Did you Know?

•A nine-month old baby can crawl up to 400 meters in 20 minutes (Learning to Keep Balance. Karen Adolph, Dept of Psychology, New York University)

•A cruising baby in one day can take as many steps as a marathon runner in a race (O’Malley, M. “Normalization of temporal-distance parameter in pediatric gait” J. Biomechanics 29, 619-625, 1996)

•A baby can fall up to 300 times before managing to stand up or walk (American Academy of Pediatrics, pg 260-261; Babyhood, P. Leach, pg 254)
 

Pampers Cruisers with Dry Max is the brand’s first high performance diaper and the biggest innovation for the Pampers brand in the last 25 years. Pampers has invented the Dry Max technology and applied it to the current Swaddlers and Cruisers core, which allows the diaper to be 20 percent thinner than current Pampers Cruisers without sacrificing any performance. This hard-working diaper locks wetness away and is Pampers’ driest diaper ever. New Pampers Cruisers with Dry Max have game-changing benefits for mom, baby and the world.

Pampers is offering a great chance for you to win a years supply of diapers for your little one.  For your chance to win simply go to Pampers.com starting on January 29th and request your sample pack of Pampers Cruisers with Dry Max.  If one of the three diapers in your pack is a Team USA stamped diaper you win.  They are randomly inserted into the packages so we all have a fair chance to win.

•Did you know that a cruising baby in one day can take as many steps as a marathon runner in a race*, and a nine-month old baby can crawl up to 400 meters in 20 minutes**? It’s this active play that continually inspires the Pampers brand, and that’s why moms and dads are encouraged to log on to Pampers.com beginning February 12 to join in celebrating the development of their own best players. Parents will have the ability to upload a video of their baby crawling from left to right, and randomly selected videos will be compiled into a Pampers Cruisers Diapers with Dry Max “Baby Relay” commercial which will air during closing day of the Olympic Winter Games, giving babies a chance to showcase their own playful ability in the same forum as the most elite athletes.

On to the most important stuff for mom.  Pampers Cruisers with Dry Max has:

•New Dry Max technology – our driest ever – to help lock wetness in up to 12 hours.
•Twenty (20) percent less bulk, making it Pampers’ thinnest diaper and our driest ever
•Softer outer cover for comfort inside and out
•Tapered design
•Sesame Street® characters (Sesame street® is a licensed character with Pampers in North America)
•Will be offered for the same price as current Pampers Swaddlers and Cruisers (Pricing is at the sole discretion of the retailer.)

The thinner design allows mom to carry or store more of them within less space.  I have two in diapers so less space is so important to me and I am so excited to get to try these diapers out.  Pampers Swaddlers and Cruisers with Dry Max will be available at mass, discount, baby specialty, grocery and eRetail stores where Pampers products are sold beginning March 2010.  But don’t forget in the meantime to go to Pampers.com starting tomorrow, January 29th, and request your free samples.

Fun Stuff For Families

January 28, 2010

We do not take nearly enough family vacations together although I really wish that we did.  It just seems something else comes up and we cannot go but we do try to get away at least once in a year.  We are heading to Great Wolf Lodge in March which we are totally excited for and know the kids will have so much fun it is a much needed vacation.  We are hoping to maybe take them somewhere else this summer.  We were thinking of going to like Cedar Point in Ohio or something but then who knows I would love to take them to New York and check out the sites and sounds of a very large, very busy city.  The kids have my love for musicals so maybe even take in a show on Broadway with them or something, I have even gone so far as to start looking at Broadway Tickets to see what kind of shows there are that I think the kids would like.

That is all a dream and I am sure it will not happen this year but soon, once the babies are a little older to understand what is going on and sit through a show maybe.

In the meantime we will do things closer to home, dream about big vacations and have fun right where we are.  It is not where you are it is who you are with that makes life so fun.  The kids love to play outside and so do we, this summer will be soooo fun with Maddisyn on her Strider Bike learning to be a big girl on a big girl bike and Chase and Blake on the PlasmaCar we will do lots of fun stuff.  We have even thought about getting them a electric bike to ride around the neighbourhood, although I think if I had to pedel myself as a kid they can too.

We go swimming, play ball, go to the park, jump on the trampoline, go camping and just spend time in general together, what do you and your family do to be together?
