Keep Em Looking Fabulous in Fab Kids - October 2014


Disclaimer: I received products  for review purposes. No other compensation was received. Though the product was free, opinions are 100% my very own.



October is almost over but it would be remiss of us if we didn't share our Fab Kids October outfits with you. It's officially fall and the colors have been toned down a bit but who said you can't wear bright colors in the fall? I love bright colors all year round. It makes the season more cheerful and bright.  Now for those wondering what Fab Kids is all about let me tell you all about it. You're going to love it!  Fab Kids is a fashion subscription for your son or daughter ages 2 - 12. Each month you get to choose the outfit of your choice for the low price of $29.95 for a 2 piece set. That works out to be about $15 per item which is a lot cheaper than some of the high end children's store prices. For the quality that you're getting you won't be disappointed. The retail is also much higher than what you receive so you're getting it at a steal.

Bluum 33 Month Old Box - October 2014

* This post contains affiliate and referral links.


I am getting later and later with my Bluum reviews and while this one is also late it's actually a lot earlier than our 32 month old box that we received last month. I love getting subscription boxes and while a few people may disagree about getting them, which their main reason being that they like to know what they're getting, I love the surprises. If you're new to the subscription world and have no idea what a Bluum subscription box is all about let me explain it to you. My regular readers already know so this is for the ones brand new to my site. Bluum is a monthly subscription box for both mom and babies from pregnancy all the way to age 5. Each month you receive a box of surprise goodies catered to your little one based on their age. Subscription costs $29/monthly but there are 3 other subscription plans, and the longer you subscribe the cheaper it becomes. You can get a 3 month subscription at $25/month, 6 months at $23/month and 12 months at $21/month all which needs to be paid upfront. You can take a look at some of our past Bluum boxes.

Cranberry Tea Cookies


The weather has gotten so much cooler in the past couple of day and it has been getting darker a lot quicker in the afternoons as well. We are looking forward to daylight savings time and can't wait for it to begin. I'm not a fan of the dark and like sunshine. It does make you feel a lot better. No-one likes the winter blues. If you enjoyed our stuffed pepper soup yesterday then you will love our cranberry tea cookies today. Today I want to share with you something that everyone in the household would enjoy. Cookies make not only a great treat for an afternoon snack but it's that one treat that you just can't get enough of. Cookies never last more than an hour once made in our household and these are no exception to that rule. I just know that your family would love them too.


Yields: 35-40 Cookies

Here is what you'll need:

Joovy Toy Car Seat - It's the Real Deal

Disclaimer: I'm a Joovy Blogger and received products for review purposes. No other compensation was received. Though the product was free, opinions are 100% my very own.


We just celebrated National Car Seat Safety Month in September. If it's one thing that mommy and I really advocate for is the safety of all children when traveling. It's always important to buckle up. A car seat is something that is needed before you can leave the hospital with your baby. While there are lots of different models available on the market right now, the most important things that you want to look for when choosing one for your baby. Here are just a few of our tips:

  • Ease of use - You don't want to be fighting putting a car seat in and out of your car, especially in the middle of winter. 
  • Five Point Safety Harness - These are a lot safer for your babies use and you'll feel safer too.
  • Car Seat Base - This makes it easy to get in and out of your car. Make sure that it is installed properly in your car. If you need help there are car seat safety check centers that can help you.
  • Easy to Clean and Comfortable - Look for one that is easy to clean. There's nothing worse than having a car seat that is dirty with your little one. Lots of car seats now have covers that can be easily removed. Also look for a seat that is padded and comfortable for your little one. After all this is going to be their place to sit for a few years.

Now one good way to encourage your little one to love their own car seat is to introduce them to one for play. I received the Joovy Toy Car Seat for my dolls and I couldn't have been more delighted. If you're wondering, it is also available in blue so little boys can also get in on the educational fun.

Jif to Go Dippers Makes Snack Time Easy - #GetGoing #MC #Sponsored

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence-Central for Jif To Go Dippers. I received a sample to facilitate my review and a thank you item for participating.


I am almost always on the go. Between daycare and my blog work, I'm a very busy toddler. It may look easy but let me tell you it takes a lot of time to do these blog posts. Mommy is very busy so whenever we have time we try and squeeze in some time almost always after school. Those days can be very hectic. My brothers are just the same way. Between basketball practice for my older brother and self-defense classes for my younger brother, our days are filled with activities. Earlier this month I introduced the Jif to Go Dippers. and I can say that these have certainly made things a lot easier for not just me but for mommy as well. Here was a quick and easy snack that was already made and just waiting to be eaten. We are huge fans of peanut butter and Jif is one of the brands that we trust. You know their slogan, "Choosy moms choose Jif"? Well it's true. Mommy is very choosy and it's one of the brands that she does chooses whenever we go grocery shopping.
