Fun Filled Weekend

I like to plan things when I go somewhere, especially when we take the kids.  But the occasional randomness doesn't hurt either!  Last weekend we went to The Promenade at Santa Monica, CA and enjoyed the not so hot but humid weather.  

The street performers was fun to watch and listen to!  

Scored some awesome $1 flipflops at Old Navy!

Found a little tea bar that sells boba, so that was really nice!

Overall, it was a fun filled weekend.  

The Silver-painted guy was being goofy

Can you guess what this balloon suppose to be?

Lil Bums Review and Giveaway

Disclosure:  I received free samples to facilitate this review.  However,  all thoughts are my own.

I received a couple of Lil Bums one size cloth diapers for review.  Aside from the really cute colors and patterns they have on their cloth diaper, I like the fact that they use organically grown bamboo cotton inserts,  which makes it extremely comfortable fit and prevents rashes. 

The snaps are easy to use when changing sizes. You don't have to keep buying as the baby continues to grow.  I'm also delighted that they don't leak.


All Lil Bums diapers comes with 2 organically grown bamboo inserts.
It has several plastic snaps for easy adjustment. Aiman is only 4 months old and it fits him very well already.

Lil Bums are very absorbent, it keeps baby happy :)
You can get these cloth diapers at their website here.  Or you can also enter the giveaway at my blog for a chance to win 6 pack cloth diaper starter pic Valued at $99.99.  To enter just use the Rafflecopter widget below.  This giveaway is open to US Residents only.

Therafirm Legwear Review and Giveaway

Disclosure:  I received free products to facilitate this review.  However,  all thoughts are 100% my own.  No other compensation was received.

One of my favorite fashion must-have is a nice pair of tights.  It's great to wear, they look chic, trendy and effortless.  Love wearing mine under a dress, skirt or tunic. Since I wear a lot of tights, I like investing on a good one. Like the GOGO by Therafirm, they uses the most-up-to-date technologies and beautiful and comfortable fibers to create superior, quality garments.

Using gradient compression hosiery helps provide relief for tired, achy legs and to help prevent swelling.  True graduated compression provides a controlled amount of pressure to help promote better blood flow and in turn help to improve circulation.

Kinivo Bluetooth Speaker Review and Giveaway

Disclosure:  I received a free sample of this product to facilitate the review.  However, all thoughts are my own.  No other compensation was received.

I had the opportunity to do a review on a pretty neat product. It's a Digital Wireless Speaker system model BTX350 made by Kinivo.  it connects wirelessly via bluetooth. I have to say that this speaker really provides a good punch to your ears for its size. The sound quality is great and the bass button definitely adds a noticeable amount of difference to bass for your listening experience.

 I like the fact that it is so easy to connect your bluetooth device to the speaker. All you have to do is power it on and search on your device for the speaker bluetooth name. And thats it. You can start listening to your music or whatever you want after the audible chime is heard. The speaker system stores up to four devices and will always connect to the last device that was used. I've been using it non stop on my iPhone and iPad. It works great! Its gets better. You can find this unit on Amazon for about $39.99!!! That is actually a really good price for what you are getting. Great for home or at work!

Cody Cotton Great Adventure Book Review and Giveaway

I was given the opportunity to review a Children's book titled "Cody Cotton Great Adventure!"  The book is about a fun loving character named Cody Cotton who grew up in a farm. He then travels to the factory where he's made into a cotton T-shirt and finally arriving to the child's home.

When I received the book it came with a 100% cotton T-shirt that featured the Cody Cotton character on the front. It teaches him what cotton is and how it is used. I like this factor in a kid's book and it can educate Elias in such a simple way about something that is so important in our everyday lives.

It's a very fun book to read with my toddler and young children.  The illustrations are quite colorful and child appealing. Its definitely a great book to add to your child's book collection.




You can buy a copy of this book here. Or you can enter my giveaway for a chance to win this really cute book and Tshirt.  Simply use the rafflecopter widget below.  This giveaway is open to US Residents only.

Sponsored: Ozeri Non-stick Frying Pan Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. Disclosure:  I was provided a free sample to facilitate this review.  However, all opinions are my own.

I always keep my eyes open for a good frying pan.  For years, I've been using stainless steel pans to avoid PTFE's, PolyTetraFluoroEthylene, (you know, that synthetic substance with waxy properties) and PFOA's, PerFluoroOctanoic Acidbut it's such a pain cleaning them sometimes. I also tend to burn my food most of the time when using my stainless steel pan.  I really prefer cooking my eggs or pancakes or sautéing my garlic and onions in a non-stick frying pan.

When I learned about Ozeri Green Earth Textured Non-stick frying pan,  I was a pretty excited!  They are 100% free of PTFE and PFOA free which got my attention right away.  The pan looks nice and seems like its pretty durable. The non-stick surface really worked well with the dish I cooked which made cleaning very simple. 

I always get a little iffy when I can't pronounce a chemical correctly and knowing that its in direct contact with my food!! I just learned that at very high temperatures the PTFE will actually begin to decompose and release toxic fumes. I don't like toxic fumes and I'm pretty sure that goes for the most of us on planet earth. Lets stay away from them. Who's with me??

Here's what Ozeri says about their pan:

In addition, traditional pans incorporating PTFE are often manufactured with the aid of PFOA (PerFluoroOctanoic Acid), which the EPA has classified as a 'persistent pollutant of the environment'. With the Green Earth Pan's GREBLON ceramic from Germany, even under high temperatures, no harmful toxic fumes are ever released into the environment. This is because the Green Earth Pan utilizes a 100% ceramic coating inspired by nature - not a laboratory. The Green Earth Pan's ceramic coating is completely free of PTFE and PFOA, and far more durable and scratch-resistant than other non-stick surfaces. With better non-stick properties, the Green Earth Pan allows you to saute, fry, bake, boil and braise with as little as half the amount of oil normally used, and cleaning is a breeze. The Green Earth Pan by Ozeri is made of the highest quality die-cast aluminum that allows for even cooking and fantastic browning without hot spots. It boasts a magnetized bottom for rapid heat transfer on induction stoves, and a heat resistant silicone coated handle. This version of the Green Earth Pan features a textured ceramic cooking surface. The elevations of the textured cooking surface create air pockets which distribute heat underneath food to enhance cooking performance.



I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
