Giwox Red Diaper Bag/Backpack


Good morning everyone!! Hope you all had a great weekend. I was able to enjoy a beautiful sunny day at the park with my little one. Is it just me or is time just flying by? I can’t believe how fast time is going. My little guy is going to be 15 months tomorrow. (ahh!) But I digress lol.

 

IMG_1408 (1)I was lucky enough to be able to try out the Giwox Diaper Bag/Backpack. I have been wanting a backpack of some sort to carry all of my little guy’s stuff for some time now. I had a diaper bag already but as beautiful as it is, it is heavy on its own and is really heavy and bulky once I pack it with every possible thing my little guy could ever need (I know it’s unnecessary but it makes me feel more in control of possible meltdowns lol). I figured a backpack would be more comfortable and easier to carry for longer periods of time without causing shoulder and neck pain. I WAS SO RIGHT!

I am super happy to have the Giwox Red Diaper Bag/Backpack. I have had it for a week now and I have used it consistently since I received it. It fits everything that I had in my other diaper bag. I feel like it is more organized in this bag and easier to access than before. And for the best part, it can be carried as a regular bag, a shoulder bag, AND a backpack. I have been using it as a backpack the entire time. It feels much lighter this way and I am left with no pain by the end of the day. The bag is also really cute and made of an easy to wipe clean material.

Th Giwox Diaper Bag/Backpack comes in 3 colors (white, red, and navy) with polka dot patterns. It took me forever to choose which color I wanted because I kept going back and forth between them. I believe they vary slightly in dimensions so that is something to consider (or at least what I used as a tie breaker lol). The bag has 14 pockets which makes organization easy. It has an insulated pocket for baby food on the side and a baby wipe pocket on the opposite side. It comes with buckles, a changing mat, and a storage pouch.

My favorite things about this bag are that it can be carried as a backpack and the baby wipes pocket as well as other pockets making it easier for storing things neatly.

What I would change about this bag would be to have a slightly bigger insulated pouch on the side so that sippy cups and different sized baby foods could fit easily. ( I was only able to fit pouch foods in there and some spoons.) Also I would have the storage pouch have a zipper tab like the Giwox Diaper Bag because it is sturdier. (I was trying to cram a lot of stuff in the storage bag because I wanted my stuff separate and easy to access and while closing it or attempting to, the end of the zipper tab broke off. :( I know that it broke because of how much I had shoved in there but I wanted to point it out so that if anyone else is like me, you won’t do what I did lol)

Overall this is a really great bag made of durable and easy to clean material, good amount of pockets and space, and easy to take with you anywhere you go. I think it was great that they added the extra touches that make it really unique (insulated pocket, baby wipe pocket, multiple ways to carry it.)

I was lucky enough to receive the Giwox Red Diaper Bag/Backpack for free in exchange for my honest review. It is currently on sale on Amazon.com for $39.99 which I think is a great deal. It is regularly priced at $69.99.

Natracure Arthritis Mittens


Hey everyone!,

It’s been such a crazy month! Some of you know that between the constant snow we have been having here and colds being passed around left and right, I have been very busy. I once again would like to thank all of my subscribers for being so understanding and supportive! XO Now down to business.

I received Natracure’s Cold Therapy Socks first and fell in love with them! I’ll link my review of them down below. I was then given the opportunity to try out their Arthritis Mittens because they were kind enough to send me them for free for my honest review.

I will start off by saying that I do not have arthritis so as to whether it alleviates arthritis pain, I cannot say. I can say, however, that they are just as well made and comfortable as their Cold Therapy Socks.

Natracure Arthritis Mittens

Natracure Arthritis Mittens

The Natracure Arthritis Mittens are made of a soft fabric with polymer gel lining covering the inside layer where your hands go. They also have soft beads inside the mittens. The mittens can be used cold or hot which is great. A really neat feature is that the starburst designs on the mittens turn red when the mittens are hot to show you to use them with caution and remain blue when mittens are cool. I think this is really great. They also have a light pleasant scent.

IMG_2607

I love that the inner gel lining really helps to moisturize my hands while the bead sections feel really nice. I use the mittens cool to help me relax (in conjunction with the Cold Therapy Socks). I like to use the mittens warm when my hands are feeling cramped, tired, or just cold. I have also lotioned my hands and then put the mittens on to really help the lotion seep in and hydrate my skin. This is just something I decided to do and worked for me.

I really love Natracure’s Arthritis Mittens. I think that their products are really well made, great quality items. I think these are a great addition to a relaxation/spa treatment routine.

I would definitely recommend these to everyone. Check them out on their website Natracure.com

The Arthritis Mittens are currently priced at $24.99

If you have tried any of their products that you would recommend me trying or any of your favorite relaxation items please comment down below. Thanks! XO

What I think of Wonderful Skin Care


Wonderful Skin Care

I hope everyone is having a great holiday season! I have been testing out a few items that I wanted to share with you all. I was lucky enough to be sent these items to try out and as always to give you an honest review.

Wonderful Skin Care is 100% natural skin care items that are never tested on animals.      I was sent a Peppermint Lip Balm; Lavender Moisture Bar; and last but not least Cinnamon Leaf Body Butter.

I have been using these products for several days to make sure I could write an accurate review. I’ve had past experiences where I love/hate something at first and then after a couple of days it completely changes. I’m happy to report that that was not the case here. I loved the Wonderful Skin Care items from the moment I opened and smelled them and still do!

Let’s start with the Wonderful Peppermint Lip Balm. First let me say that I love Peppermint scented or flavored items especially around Christmas time. This lip balm was a great addition to my holiday skin care routine along with the Cinnamon Leaf Body Butter. They just put me in the holiday spirit. The Wonderful Peppermint Lip Balm is obviously peppermint scented and there is a very light peppermint taste to it as well as a light cooling sensation when you apply it. It moisturizes my lips without making them feel greasy. I have been applying this to my lips every morning after washing my face.

Peppermint Lip Balm

Next is the Wonderful Cinnamon Leaf Body Butter. This also put me in the holiday spirit. Cinnamon is one of those scents that I love for fall and winter. The Wonderful Body Butter has a wonderful cinnamon scent and leaves my skin feeling silky and soft without feeling greasy. When I first applied it, I thought it was going to be greasy because it has a little bit of a shine to it but once I rubbed it in, it absorbed into my skin leaving behind hydrated soft skin with a cinnamon scent. I love applying this right after taking a shower or before bed. This is a great product for anyone with dry skin or combination skin. I personally have combination skin and this product works great for my skin.

Body Butter

Lastly is the Wonderful Lavender Moisture Bar. The Lavender scent of the Wonderful Moisture Bar instantly relaxes me. It says to rub between your hands to soften and then to place it back in the jar and rub hands together to spread. This bar is very hydrating and does not leave my skin greasy either. I love using this after a shower on days where I need to unwind and relax. The Lavender scent is very relaxing and calming.

Moisture Bar

I can honestly say that these are really great products that work great on my skin with nothing that I would change about them. I really like the products as well as their packaging. They are affordable and all natural with no preservatives or additives.

Wonderful Skin Care

The Wonderful Peppermint Lip Balm is $3.50; Wonderful Cinnamon Leaf Body Butter $6.50; and Wonderful Lavender Moisture Bar $5.00. These are available in different essential oils and they also have other items on their website.

Check them out at www.wonderfulsc.com

I will be putting up my winter skin care routine on my blog next week and these items are definitely in my routine! I have also been trying out the NatraCure Arthritis Mittens and a review on them will be up soon. XOXO :)

Natracure Cold Therapy Socks Review


IMG_2253

I have to start with stating that these socks arrived at the perfect time. I have been having a stressful few weeks and these socks have helped me relax and unwind. At first glance, they look like pampering spa treatment socks and instantly make me feel like I am pampering myself. The Natracure cold therapy socks are super comfortable and soft.

The socks come with a full gel pack on the bottom of each and half sized gel pack on the top portion of each sock. The gel inserts can be removed. The socks themselves are soft and stretchy. I love that the cold therapy socks can be worn cold or heated up (heated in the microwave for 10 seconds each side- the socks come with instructions so no worries :) .) I enjoy wearing them cold when my feet are sore and hot from a long day. The socks really cool my feet off while relaxing me. Today I heated them up and they gently warmed up my cold aching feet. These are a great addition to a pampering routine or great for unwinding after a long day. They also claim to help with inflammation and swelling (I didn’t have either so I can’t confirm or deny it) I can say that they helped with soreness in my feet as well as hot feet. My only complaint is that I wish the gel packs stayed warm for a longer period of time but then again if that were the case I would probably live in the socks lol.

I wore these numerous times( for research purposes of course lol), sometimes cold sometimes hot and I have to say I really have enjoyed the Natracure Cold Therapy Socks. I think they are great for everyone.

The socks are washable and reusable. The socks sell for $19.99 on the Natracure website: natracure.com

They have a 60 day Money Back Guarantee which I think is really great, although I don’t think you’ll need it after trying them :). Check them out.

Disclaimer: Natracure sent me a complimentary pair of their Cold Therapy Socks for review. All opinions and reviews, as always, are my own and always 100% honest. I have nothing to gain from lying to you guys and never would :). As always thank you for your continued support of my blog. Love you guys! XO

My Thoughts on Graze Subscription Box


IMG_8581

As a mommy to a 8 month old little guy, I am always on the look out for healthy easy snacks to take with me on the go. When you have a little one, you don’t have much time to yourself or to make something healthy and satisfying. I saw an ad for Graze online and decided to check it out.

Graze is a monthly subscription with the ability to cancel at any time. Graze has a variety of snacks which do Not contain GMOs, No artificial colors/flavors, No high fructose corn syrup, No trans fats. This definitely peaked my interest. Looking at all of the snacks made me feel like I would be receiving delicious healthy snacks that I wouldn’t feel guilty about eating. Each snack is picked by Graze for you based on how you rate the snacks you receive. This subscription isn’t a good fit for someone with nut allergies because from what I saw several of their snacks contain nuts and I believe they are all packaged in the same place. If you have any allergies, I would suggest checking their site before ordering.

They have a few options of packages to choose from: Each 4 snack variety box costs just $6.99, including delivery; Each 8 snack variety box costs just $11.99 including delivery; Each sharing box, containing 5 sharing bags (about 20 servings), costs $25, including delivery.

I received a 4 snack variety box to test out. My box contained a Deconstructed Carrot Cake; Caramel Apple slices; NY Everything Bagel sticks; and Twist of Black Pepper Popcorn.

The deconstructed carrot cake contains carrot chews, cinnamon flavored raisins, walnuts, and ginger fudge. I loved this snack. It tasted exactly like a carrot cake when you combined all of the components. It was such a fun snack to try with my family.

The caramel apple snack was a dipper snack with caramel sauce and dried granny smith apple slices. This definitely tasted like a caramel apple. My little guy loved sucking on the apple slice pieces. I had to share it with him :)

IMG_8584

The NY everything bagel sticks are poppy seed onion sesame sticks. Those were my favorite. They are crunchy and taste like an everything bagel. Love them!

Graze everything bagel sticks

The twist of black pepper popcorn was really good. It was popcorn with black pepper and it tasted slightly spicy because of the pepper. I was surprised to like it, but I actually like it better than traditional popcorn.

Graze popping corn

I have to say I really loved the snacks that Graze picked out for me to try. They are all delicious and satisfying. They are a good single serve size for a snack. I liked having them in my diaper bag for when I was out and about and got hungry.  I loved the packaging and quality. Such a fun box. I would definitely recommend Graze to anyone looking for a healthy tasty snack delivered right to your door. Keep in mind these snacks are single serve sizes. I would like to thank Graze for sending these samples to me for me to try out. I loved them!

If you have a subscription box that you are loving please let me know in the comments down below. XO :)
