Life Choices Food Review/Giveaway CAN Only

My family recently was given the chance at trying a product from Life Choices.So when I received the PFC I took my kiddies with me and they all wanted to try the Italian Meatballs.I just recently took these out of the freezer and put them in the slow cooker for awhile then added some sauce and let them slow cook some more and WOW how delicious were they.The kiddies really enjoyed them and were none the wiser that they are not just great tatsing but also that they are healthy for them.

As I get older and reflect back on when I was a kid growing up we never had the healthier choices as much as we do now.Back in school we were taught the 4 basic food groups and not much more.As a responsible mom and wanting to give my children the best when it comes to food I am very appreciative of companies that make choices like this easier and not just healthy but also so much more tastier where kids who maybe picky with vegetables are none the wiser that eating healthy can taste great.

ABOUT THEM:(Taken from their website)

In 2002, soon after the birth of our first child, we created Life Choices Natural Foods and two lines of nutritious and convenient meals: organic pizzas and entrees. As our family grew, we realized a need for a better assortment of these nutritious and convenient products along with a need for more kid-friendly products.
With growing success in Canada and after many requests from our US friends, we launched nationally in the US under the brand Living Right Natural Foods. With every new product and line, Life Choices and Living Right use only premium organic and natural ingredients that help contribute to a balanced diet and are great tasting – products the entire family can enjoy in keeping with our mission of: “Making the Right Choices Easy.”
We do strongly believe we are fortunate to have the opportunity to do more than our fair share. Through product creation, design, manufacturing, and distribution, we make every conceivable effort to keep future generations and the planet in mind.

Now To Win It:
3 Boxes of Mac n Cheese (one of each kind)
1 Free Product Coupon (retail value of $10) to use towards any one of our products
3 $1-Off Coupons
One small insulated lunch tote (kids can draw on it)

Candles are a great way to set the mood for your sexual encounter with your partner and now it has been kicked up a notch by now being edible.Now who would have thought candles could be edible?Not me that's for sure but as I looked through the EdenFantasys site I came across these wonderful items.
The Suntouched Edible Candles by Earthly Body come in 3 delicious flavors for you to chose from Watermelon, Cherry and Strawberry and available for only $16.99 which is a small price to pay for a candle,massage oil and an edible treat.They came in a nice heart shaped tin and inside a tiny plastic spoon so once the candle starts to melt you can use the tiny spoon to drip the oil over your partner and start to give them a sensual massage.Once the heat between you and your partner is burning you can then lick the candle oil from your partners body.Now that's a perfect way to start a steamy passionate night one you won't soon forget.So why not head over to EdenFantasys and find that item or items that can put the spark back into your love life or enhance the love life you already have.

*Disclaimer~ I currently was given the opportunity to take part in a blogger program offered by EdanFantasys.This post is my own honest opinion and is not in anyway influenced by anyone other then myself.I receive a gift card for my posts from the sponsor as a thank you.

Bossypants By Tina Fey~Giveaway CAN/US

About The Book:
Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV.

She has seen both these dreams come true.

At last, Tina Fey's story can be told. From her youthful days as a vicious nerd to her tour of duty on Saturday Night Live; from her passionately halfhearted pursuit of physical beauty to her life as a mother eating things off the floor; from her one-sided college romance to her nearly fatal honeymoon -- from the beginning of this paragraph to this final sentence.

Tina Fey reveals all, and proves what we've all suspected: you're no one until someone calls you bossy.

(Includes Special, Never-Before-Solicited Opinions on Breastfeeding, Princesses, Photoshop, the Electoral Process, and Italian Rum Cake!)

Now To Win it:  I have been giving the opportunity to hosting this giveaway offering 2 of my readers the chance to win their own copy of this book by Tina Fey.

The Baby Sharky Brush Review/Giveaway CAN/US

I am very honored to be writing this review and hosting a giveaway for The Baby Sharky Brush and was excited to be the first Canadian to being doing a review/giveaway for the company Banana Baby Brush.

When I received this I couldn't get it sterilized fast enough to give to my 9 month old son(pictured above with The Baby Sharky Brush) and as nosey as the little guy is he spotted it right away as I took it out of the package and was read the packaging.Once I gave it to him he checked it out and immediately put it in his mouth like most babies put everything in their mouth and he chewed on it for what seemed like forever he wouldn't even stop using it for his snack time WHICH for my little man is really odd as he LOVES his food.Eventully I did manage to distract him once he dropped it and I threw it back in to get sterilized so he did get to eat his snack and as soon as he was done eating The Baby Sharky Brush went right back in his mouth.

I personally from observing my son with The Baby Sharky Brush really like this product and wish this was around when I had my other children as it is light weight,perfect size for babies hands,soft and flexible, teachers good oral hygiene at an early age and when not being used you can stand The Baby Sharky Brush up on its soft flexible base on a counter,dresser or any flat surface so it won't get dirty or lost and also you can attach it to a pacifier tethering strap.

Since my son has had this and takes it everywhere with him we have had many compliments and questions about The Baby Sharky Brush and as always when I come across a great product I like to buzz about it and this definately falls in that category so even though I am done with my review as my son still enjoys it I keep buzzing about it.

You can order your own The Baby Sharky Brush conveniently online just click The Baby Sharky Brush 

From the Manufacturer

Over the weekend my oldest niece who is 10 years old has for her whole life refused to take any kind of vitamin no matter what we tried to bribe her with,BUT I am happy to say that has changed thanks to IronKids.As my niece was over on the weekend and seen my children take their IronKids vitamins and ask me what they were taking so I told her and at first she wrinkled up her nose and was like ewww that's gross I don't like vitamins.My 6 year old daughter piped up and told her she was crazy that these vitamins are different they are yummy.So as my niece kept looking at the bottle and at myself and my kids she said Fine then I will try it but if it is gross I m spitting it out.I laughed at her and told her it was a deal.Surprise surprised she liked it and had to call my sister immediately to tell her.So I gave her one of the bottles to take home with her and my sister called yesterday saying that my niece was still taking them and that she was adding the IronKids vitamins to her shopping list and thanked me for introducing my niece to a vitamin that she actually liked and will take and I told her don't thank  me thank IronKids.

Iron Kids Gummies~Review

A couple of weeks ago I received this package from Iron Kids and it was packaged cutely with ribbons and as you can see from the above picture there was 4 full sized bottles of IronKids Gummies inside.

As a mother of 5 kids it is important to me that my children get the appropriate amount of essential vitamins each day and have tried various brands of non gummy and gummy vitamins with my children and really to no avail have they really been too interested over the years to take a non gummy or a gummy vitamin.I ALWAYS had to bribe them to take their vitamins.As the children would complain about the vitamin to be either too chalky or when it came to gummy vitamins they were too hard or too chewy.This is the most relevant in my 6 year old daughter who has a big issue with textures.

Surprisingly my 6 year old was the first to ask about the gummies so I immediately jumped on it and let her pick which ones she wanted to try first and she picked the Multi-Vitamin for Active Kids and I was floored when she ate it and thought they were supper yummy and asked if she could have another one.and since she is 6 she as the package says could have 2 a day so I gladly gave her a second one.Now that the others seen her like them they thought they had to be good as she is the pickest of the picky and they all asked to try them too and they all liked them as well.

So now the morning ritual is I have no problem giving my 6 year old her iron drops because she knows she gets her Iron Kids Gummies right afterwords and the other children follow suit.Ever since they started taking Iron Kids Gummies they have not missed a day of taking a vitamin and that pleases me too no end.Now I can rest safely knowing that they are getting the essential vitamins they need each day thanks to IronKids Gummies.This is a product that is a welcome addition to our house.

*Disclaimer~ I was given the opportunity to take part in reviewing this product from Iron Kids and I received 4 bottles to try.This post is my own honest opinion and is not in anyway influenced by anyone other then myself.

Green Apple Tic Tac~Review

Recently I had the opportunity to try the *NEW* Green Apple Tic Tacs and was pleasently surprised to receive the pack which along with the Green Apple Tic Tacs I received a great Tic Tac t-shirt which I am wearing in the picture at the bottom on this review and 4 stickers which are really cute.

My family has been enjoying Tic Tacs for years as long as I can remember even when I was just a child myself and the tradition has carried on with my own children.We have enjoy every flavor that has been available so when the opportunity arose to try the *NEW* Green Apple I jumped right onboard and I am so glad I did because let me tell you they are AMAZING.Not too sweet or sour just the right combination of the both.As myself I am not a huge fan of sour but my kiddies love sour things so with Green Apple Tic Tacs they served a perfect portion of both a little sweet and sour.

The kids have eaten all the Tic Tacs now and they have been put on the shopping list as they are a big hit in our house.Thank you Tic Tac my family thoroughly enjoyed participating in this review.

The Medium Next Door~Giveaway/Review CAN/US CLOSED

The Medium Next Door is the amazing life story of spirit medium Maureen Hancock, who discovered her psychic abilities to see, hear, and speak with the dead when she was just five years old. Descended from a long line of legendary Irish mystics, Maureen was no stranger to the spiritual realm, but she stillkept the messages from the departed to herself all throughout her childhood and teen years, eventually suppressing them almost completely.

Maureen wouldn't open herself up to communicating with spirits again until she was in a near-fatal car crash. Soon after, she had hundreds of voices in her head, many of them helping her crack cases and expose fraud in her role as a litigation paralegal at a large Boston law firm. Accepting her gift but still keeping it to herself, she married and had two children.

It wasn't until tragedy struck on 9/11 and Maureen was bombarded with messages from the spirits that she realized she had to stop hiding her ability and put it to good use. She left her job at the law firm and opened the holistic healing center Pathways to Healing and launched the cancer foundation Manifest a Miracle. Today, she goes by the title Medium Mom and strives to balance raising children, raising the dead, assisting the dying, searching for missing children, and teaching about life after death. 

Once I receive my copy I will write my review and I am really looking forward to receiving and reading this book.

Win It:

Review~Cheddar Cheese Bear Paw Crackers

Recently my family was given the opportunity by Mom Central Canada to receive a box of Bear Paw Cheddar Cheese Crackers by Dare Foods and the kiddies loved them and as a mom I was more then happy to serve this nutritious snack to them especially knowing that they are peanut free and are made in a peanut/nut free facility.With so many restrictions nowadays with what your children can and cannot take to school for snacks and in their lunches it's great when companies such as Dare Foods take that extra step to ensure your children have a snack that will be welcomed at your child's school.

Good For You Facts: • Peanut Free
• Low in Saturated Fat
• No Trans Fat
• Source of Calcium
• Source of Thiamine
• Source of Niacin
• Good Source of Folate
• No Artificial Flavors
• Made with Real Old Cheddar Cheese

These have been added to our shopping list and my family would like to thank Mom Central for the opportunity to test this product and to Dare Foods for taking the extra time to care about what our children put in their mouths.

Recently I was given the opportunity to try a pair of STRIDE EVERYDAY panties and all I can say is WOW for me a mother of 5 kids my bladder has been through it's wear and tear of being used as a trampoline while pregnant.Now for about 5 years I have lived with having a little leakage problem and went to the doctor many times to see how to solve this problem and got nowhere.So like many women past and present in my family I had to result in wearing a pantyliner all the time especially when it came to cold and flu season oh and yes can't forget about good old allergy season when the coughing and sneezing are the worse.So you could say for about the last 5 years I have been a prisoner to pantyliners and when it gets real bad full out sanitary napkins which I dreaded as they always make me feel like Im wearing a diaper.

Well now I can happily say that I am not a prisoner anymore now that I have had the chance to try STRIDE and Am thrilled to say that I will definately be buying some of these.You can get either bikini or brief style and they come in a variety of colors/designs and they even come in a wide variety of sizes including Curves for the 14+.Best of all they are washable good for up to 100 wears now that will be a HUGE money saver for me from buying pantyliners and pads all the time.

So if you are like me and have a leaky bladder and have always been embarrassed by having to wear a pantyliner or pad all the time and always checking to see if your pantyliner or pad was visible through your clothes it's time for you to give STRIDE a try as no more visible bulges will appear.Heck I kept checking out my bottom in the mirror when I was wearing the STRIDE just for the fact that I couldn't believe that it was absolutely undetectable to the naked eye.You will be pleasantly surprised how comfy and freeing wearing STRIDE will make you free.No more being embarrassed by having a leaky bladder and noone will be the wiser.No I can go about my everyday busy life of 5 kids with the confidence that I am well protected from leaks.

Before I get to the giveaway aspect of this post I would like to introduce you to the brains and beauty behind STRIDE EVERYDAY panties. This lovely woman pictured above is Wendy Spencer founder and president of STRIDE EVERYDAY.Wendy had a passion for fashion at an early age and about the same time she started experiencing her first bladder leakage moment.As many women do Wendy used to wrap sweaters around her waist. As a mother,business woman and with being very active in life Wendy decided to create a product for women that were like herself and had light leaks and were tired of using disposable products.

Does Milk Really Do The Body Good?

We Have always been told since we were little and for many many generations we have all been told that milk does the body good,but is this infact true?

For years and generations now milk has been pushed on our families as to be a very important part of a health strong growing body,yet they do not disclose to their consumers that too much milk doesn't do the body good and how much is too much?

In September 2009 my now 6 year old daughter was experiencing growing like pains so I took her to the doctor and after the doctor hear the symptoms and doing an examination our family doctor concluded that it looked like it was growing pains.So we left and continued on our everyday lives as we usually did.Then within the coming weeks the symptoms were still there and her hair was getting brittle and falling out so I rushed her back to the doctor as this is something I had never experienced before and it freaked me out.The doctor examined her and asked how she was as in her everyday life,I told him not much had changed she was still eating just as well as she had always ate and was still quite active,but was complaining of pain in her legs.He reported to me that she didn't look much different a little pale and he couldn't figure out why the hair loss and said it could still be growing pains but with the hair loss he said we better get her to the lab for blood work.

I was sitting on pins and needles all kinds of horrible thoughts kept coming to mind and thought I would die by Monday for the doctor to call with the test results,so at 9:00pm that night I tucked her into bed with her My Little Pony movie playing and went back downstairs to tidy up,when the phone rang and it was the doctor urging me to get her to the hospital right away as she was going to need emergency blood transfusions.I broke down crying not knowing what to expect but ran up the stairs grabbed her out of bed and went right to the hospital.

At the hospital they rushed her right in and started to do more blood work and the doctor there examined her and asked a load of questions.My poor baby girl was crying and I was crying with her not knowing what to expect and praying for the best.When the doctor told me that he thought she would have to be rushed to Toronto's Sick Kids Hospital because he was thinking the worst that she might have leukemia .That just killed me hearing those words as that was the words that I was dreading to hear the most.

A little while later which felt like a lifetime the doctor came back in with the test results and said that she didn't have leukemia and did not need to go to Toronto but would have to stay in the hospital to get blood transfusions.I was relieved that she didn't have leukemia and that the hospital could do what she needed there,but was still shaken and scared for her with the blood transfusions.

The doctor explained to me that she was anemic which is something that happens when you drink too much milk or dairy products.That milk has no Iron in it and for that fact the milk would suck out the Iron from my daughters blood and that would lower her hemoglobin levels.I was shocked with this new found knowledge and questioned the doctor how is this possible when they always advertise that milk does the body good.He told me yes milk can do the body good but that it can also do harm if overly digesting it.He then asked me how much milk and milk products did she eat/drink daily.I told him no more then usual she loves her milk and cheese,always having milk with her meals and with snacks and that she ate cheese as a snack alot as she loves her milk and cheese,but that she ate a regular diet like the rest of the family.So then obviously he questioned if anyone else in the family had any of her symptoms and I told him no it was just her.

She was admitted and stayed in the hospital for 4 nights 3days and was put on an Iron enriched diet and was told that she could no longer have dairy at all.She had 3 blood transfusions which helped raise her hemoglobin levels and was released,but I had to closely monitor her to make sure she didn't over do herself as too much activity would wear her out so she was home from school for a week and had regular doctors appointments and many visits to the lab for blood testing to make sure that her hemoglobin levels didn't drop.

She quickly recovered and almost 2 years later she is going strong and living a happy healthy life and our family has gone completely from dairy milk to Almond and Soy milk and although she is allowed to have dairy again she gets very little dairy as does the whole family because once bitten twice shy on something like that to every happen to my family again.

That is why I pose the question Does Milk Really Do The Body Good? Me myself am a little milk/dairy shy now from that tragedy that happened to my family,and makes me wonder why or where do we as parents draw the line with milk/dairy for our children.

Sometimes what is good for us and our children can also be harmful.
