$25 GC Giveaway to Maukilo.com

Buy Once. Play Forever. I like that motto. This is the mission behind Maukilo. Toys should last a lifetime, not just a season. Timeless pieces like wooden blocks, cloth dolls and musical instruments should be around to entertain more than just one child. These are the toys that should be cherished for lifetimes.

Haba, Automoblox and PlaSmart are just a couple of the quality and innovative brands that can be found on Maukilo. Whether you’re looking for soft play toys for a baby or educational puzzles for older kids you’re going to find it at Maukilo.

The Lulu Flower Mini Knit Doll from Blabla is hand-knitted from the finest cotton and slightly under stuffed for that cuddly feel.  We received this item for our one year old niece to play with while she is at our house during the day and she loves it.  She hugs it and walks around the house with either its leg or arm in hand.  In my opinion it is a super soft doll and I can see why kids would love to cuddle this doll.  I think I might need to get one for myself, LOL.

Start baby off on the right foot with a baby registry of only the toys you want; those that don’t require batteries, those that stimulate positive reflexes and those free of toxins and unhealthy materials. With the holidays right around the corner compile a wishlist for a child of any age and point the grandparents, extended family and friends to shop for just the right gift.

Win a $25 GC to Maukilo just by telling me what you would add to your child’s wishlist this year.

Do you know what you’re getting for the kids and babies in your family for the holidays? Visit Land of Nod not just for toys and games but for furniture, organization idea and nursery décor. In fact I only knew about Land of Nod for their extensive nursery and baby gear selections. I always wanted to register there but their actual stores are in the Chicago area plus one in Seattle.

In addition to specializing in exclusive children’s furniture, bedding, playrooms, and accessories,The Land of Nod also carries popular baby gear brands in strollers, car seats, clothing, toys, and much more.  The Land of Nod: You’ll find everything for your kid’s room from A to ZZZ.

This holiday season The Land of Nod is showing off some of their favorite products to the blog world. I got the chance to review the Two Tier Treat Tray. You all should now our obsession with playfood and the fact that Shae plays in her kitchen each day. The particular set is absolutely adorable and perfect for kids who play kitchen, store or tea party. My best friend’s kids play store every day; they turn their play kitchen into a bakery where they serve pizza and donuts. This dessert collection is going to be the perfect addition to their make believe store front.

This set includes three cupcakes, three chocolate cookies, two vanilla cookies, two cake rolls, two slices of cake and three wafers. Best of all it is made with sustainable solid wood. The assembly literally takes 2 minutes; 2 bolts to put the tray together. Each piece is painted and decorated to be cute with realistic touches. I can’t wait to see those kids open this up.

Fiskars Salsa Rain Barrel System with DiverterPro Review and Giveaway-CLOSED

Are you looking for a more natural way to collect water for your household garden and plants? Melinda and I were too and recently we were lucky enough to receive a Fiskars Salsa Rain Barrel System with DiverterPro.

The Fiskars Salsa Rain Barrel System with DiverterPro arrived just in time because at our house we have a full garden plus we have additional tomato and pepper plants in pots as well as herbs in a pot. We use a TON of water during the spring and summer months to keep all of our vegetables and herbs hydrated. Before receiving the rain barrel Melinda and I discussed ways we would collect rain water so we could use a more natural approach in our watering. We tried to leave the watering can out to collect rain which it was able to collect some but nowhere near enough to water everything.
Here are a few features of the Fiskars Salsa Rain Barrel System with DiverterPro then we will discuss the installation process.

Features

  • DiveterPro™ channels rainwater from the downspout into the rain barrel. When the barrel is full, the diverter channels the water back to the downspout and away from your home
  • Removable filter to capture debris and transparent door to see if cleaning is needed
  • Fits both standard downspout sizes.
  • Spice granite color
  • Holds 58 gallons
  • Barrel and cover made of recyclable, UV-treated, impact-resistant polyethylene
  • Integrated base provides clearance for filling watering cans
  • Flat-back fits snug to house
  • Rain barrel made in U.S.A.
  • Limited 3-year warranty

Ok, now on to the install process. I’m not a person who typically reads directions but I made sure I did this time so before you install the rain barrel and DiverterPro be sure to read the directions (it is in your best interest). You will need to make a few measurements and cuts to the rain downspout on your home and you only have one chance to do it right so please be sure to read the directions. Believe it or not it was pretty simple to install. The hardest part for me was getting the ground level for my rain barrel. I actually needed to go to Home Depot so I could pick up a few patio pavers to make a level surface. Other then that everything else was pretty straight forward. You will need a drill to drill a hole in the side of the rain barrel and also a saw to cut the downspout. The DiverterPro went on easy and installing the tube from the DiverterPro to the rain barrel was straight forward as well.

Now I am waiting for rain, LOL. While we were away on vacation the barrel collected some rain but not enough to use yet. So I am hoping I get to use the Fiskars Salsa Rain Barrel System with DiverterPro before the end of the season but if not no big deal I will have it for next year where it will get used for sure.

Need/want a rain barrel for your home? If so you have struck gold because Fiskars is giving one lucky Look What Mom Found…and Dad too! Reader a Fiskars Salsa Rain Barrel System with DiverterPro valued at $149.99.  Go to Fiskars and tell me something you learned about Fiskars or a product you would love to try.

Spa results from Aromafloria’s For Feet’s Sake

My feet are a wreck this summer; It doesn’t help that I walk barefoot around the house, in the yard, in the garage, at the pool, on the sidewalk, etc. I have my trusty dead skin shaver that really helps but I’ve never done anything beyond that. Aromafloria’s For Feet’s Sake collection is exactly what my feet never knew they needed.

Aromafloria is a natural, eco-friendly beauty, home and bath company focusing on essential oils, minerals, herbs and botanicals. For over 25 years they’ve been bringing nature into the lives of many customers. They believe
…wellness is a state of mind
…the sense of smell is a vital key in well being
…in the restorative power of a bath
…that art and science are converging beautifully

All of this means that a more holistic and natural approach to everyday living will result in a more peaceful, stress-free and harmonious attitude and overall outlook. How do you feel when you come out of a spa, moments after your massage or pedicure? Relaxed and cheerful right! Aromafloria is giving us that effect in our own home.

I’ve been using the entire For Feet’s Sake collection for a couple weeks now. It’s not an overnight change but I’ve been very pleased with the progress. I’ve even learned to wear socks around the house so I’m not wasting my time tending to the tootsies. The Refreshing Spa Foot & Leg Mist is a pleasant surprise. I at first thought it was going to be a useless product, just a scented water but it softens and relaxes not just my feet but my legs. I use this up to my knees after shaving and there is no burning or redness. The scrub I need to get used to though. It doesn’t have a creamy enough texture or base to spread the way I want all over my feet. Directions day about a tablespoon amount per foot but I feel I need a lot more to really get all over. I’m going to try a different method the next time, maybe less water will work better.

Whether for your home or hands Aromafloria is a successful tool in aroma-therapy, de-stressing and quality pampering.
