Personalized 2.5D Light Box #Review & #Giveaway

With loosing my grandmother in August, I have been trying to find a gift for my mother that would be great and incorporate my grandmother’s photo. I thought about a canvas print of her photo, but my mom doesn’t really have a lot of room left on her walls from all of the grand kids’ pictures. So when I was given the opportunity to work with I knew that I had found the perfect gift.

The 2.5D Personalized Light Box is an awesome gift and the detail put into the photo is amazing. After deciding what photo I wanted to use, I just sent it in and within a few days my light box was on it’s way. Now, I will be honest and say that I wasn’t expecting too much from it. I figured that it would just be a flat piece of paper in a flimsy box, but I was pleasantly surprised. The light box it’s self is sturdy and slightly heavy ( no worries about it being knocked over). And the photo insert totally surpassed what I expected. I’m not sure what material the picture insert is made of, but it is lightweight and perfect for doing the photos. When the insert is in the light box, you get the look of a beautiful framed photo, even without the light being on; though you can not really see the details of the photo, you can see the photo when the box is viewed at a certain angle. Once the light is on the photo literally comes to life!

Isn’t it amazing? You can see the peaks and valleys in the photo insert when it isn’t lit and once it is lit up it literally looks just like the photo I sent in.

Vizardz offers more than just the 2.5D light boxes, you can also get a 2.5D night light, 2.5D Ornament (perfect for the holidays), and you can purchase extra inserts for your Light box or Night Light.

2011 HGG~Smiley Cookie #review

We are a house that loves cookies, we always have at least one package in the cabinet at all times. The kids love to give their teachers and coaches cookies for Christmas and this year we will be giving out Smiley Cookie’s.

Smiley Cookie’s are amazing! We got a sample box of the Sugar Cookie Christmas Trees and Gingerbread cookies. Let me tell you, I didn’t even get a chance to taste the sugar cookies before the kids had eaten them all! I am normally a little weary about gingerbread cookies, because I haven’t found one yet that actually tastes like gingerbread. But Smiley Cookie’s hav got my vote, those were the BEST gingerbread cookies! Each cookie comes with a frosted Smiley Face (hence the name), and the Christmas Tree Sugar Cookies are covered in green icing. The icing isn’t too sweet and does not detract from the cookie’s flavor at all. And how can you not smile while eating a cookie that is smiling at you? I dare you to try it.

The cookies arrived packaged in a plastic holder “for lack of a better term”, inside of an adorable smiley face box ( perfect for giving as a gift!). In my opinion, cookies are just about the best gift to give and makes gift giving easy!

And for everyone wondering about the freshness, ingredients, and even if we have some readers out there who eat Kosher… here is the info taken from their FAQ section:

Product Questions
1. How long will Smiley Cookies stay fresh?
As long as they remain in a sealed container, your Smiley Cookies should remain fresh for about a week. They will lose freshness more quickly if left out. However, 20-30 seconds in the microwave will “refresh” a hardened cookie. Additionally, if you’d like to preserve your cookies longer, they can be wrapped and stored in the freezer.
2. How big are the original and mini round cookies?
Our big cookies are 4” in diameter an our mini cookies are 2.5” in diameter.
3. Do Smiley Cookies include trans-fats?
No, our Smiley Cookies do not contain any trans-fats.
4. Are there any allergens contained in Smiley Cookies?
Our cookies are made in a peanut-free and tree-nut free facility. No peanuts, tree nuts, or nuts of any kind ever enter our bakery. We also ensure that our ingredients are not produced in facilities that process nuts. Our cookies do contain Wheat, Egg, Soy, and Dairy ingredients.
5. Are Smiley Cookies Kosher?
Yes, The Orthodox Union supervises our production and certifies that all of our cookie gifts are Kosher Dairy. Check out our Kosher Cookie Gifts

2011 HGG~ Carmex Healing Lotion #review

 We have been using Carmex lotion for quite a while now.  You might remember my post about lip and skin care kit that I received last year. Well after buying up a whole bunch of the lotion, we ran into a snag trying to find some when we ran out.

Carmex recently sent us a great little giftset that included two full size lotions and two travel size lotions!  The travel size ones automatically went into Harm’s backpack so she could have them at school and the full size ones went in their place of honor on the bathroom shelf.  I love that the Healing lotion and Cream are both non-greasy and leave my skin feeling soft and smooth. The healing cream is great on our dried out elbows and perfect for our feet. With the weather turning colder, we always seem to dry out and this set couldn’t have arrived at a better time.

Harm loves the travel size lotions and after washing her hands at school she automatically pulls out the lotion! We all love the Carmex scent from the lip balm and the lotion having that scent is an added bonus for us!

Beginning Tuesday, November 29, 2011, Carmex will be celebrating their 250,000th fan with a big giveaway!  Check out their Facebook Page for more information!

2011 HGG~ Vapur the Anti-Bottle #review

We have a lot of exercise enthusiasts in our family, my oldest daughter being one of them! So we normally end up going through a lot of bottled water, or she ends up lugging around an aluminum water bottle. When school started this year, she signed up for Girls on the Run, which is a group that meets at school twice a week and helps girls to embrace their individual strengths and prepare them for middle and high school. Harm loved it, and she has started to really pay attention to what she east and does during the day.

Since she is exercising more two days of the week, we knew that we had to keep her hydrated, and while running it is hard for her to keep a hold of a bottle of water, so when given the opportunity to test out a Vapur Anti-Bottle, we knew it was something she would love.

The Vapur Anti-Bottle is a reusable water bottle that is completely portable. The Vapur Anti-Bottle is BPA-free and is constructed of three layers of ultra-durable plastic. The innermost layer is made from FDA-approved polyethythene, which is then bonded to two layers of nylon for strength and durability. Every Anti-Bottle is designed to withstand everyday use and regular cleaning. The inner layer is odor, taste and stain resistant, so it can safely be reused again and again! And to make it the ultimate bottle for athletes, runners, or anyone really… IT IS FOLDABLE!!!

We had to test it out, and since Harm had a meeting with GOTR the day after it came in, we knew it was the perfect time! So, with a little trepidation, I popped it into the dishwasher ( it is top rack safe) and waited with baited breath for the cycle to finish. And I was amazed that it survived the dishwasher ( not many of our water bottles have). So after be amazed at that, I knew we were going to be very satisfied with the Vapur Anti-Bottle. Harm wrote her name on the back of the bottle in the white space provided, and then took one of her tap water refilled plastic water bottles to see if the Vapur would hold a full 16.9 oz 9 amount held by regular store bought bottled water). And while the Vapur didn’t hold the full bottle, there wasn’t even a full sip left over.

It comes with a convenient carabiner, making it easy to clip to your purse, belt-loop or pack. Vapur Anti-Bottles also do not crack or dent, so there’s not as much worry as with traditional rigid bottles. Just clip it and go. The carabiner made it really easy for Harm to attach the bottle to her backpack and she didn’t have to worry about loosing it or it getting crushed. So all in all the Vapur Anti-Bottle is a great item to have and makes the perfect gift for the exercise enthusiast in your life. We plan to purchase a few more to add to gift baskets that we are giving to our gym loving cousins!!

The Vapur Anti-Bottle can be purchased online from the site:
.5L Anti-Bottles (18oz)(7 color choices) for 9.99 (special 30% sale going on now) $6.99

.5L Artist Series (3 Options) for $11.99/ Sale price $8.39

.4L Anti Bottle ( two packs/4 choices) for $15.99/ sale price $11.19

And if you don’t want to purchase online, there is a store locator on the site so you can find a store in your area that sells the Vapur Anti-Bottle!!

2011 HGG~ Omyst Healing Herbal First Aid Spray {Review}

My kids never fail to get a cut or scratch each week. I know Miss Sassy had a run in with a tree while at her Aunt’s this past weekend and ended up tearing up her knee pretty good ( no tears though). I normally hesitate to use any OTC products on their cuts and scratches, then I remembered that I had a review sample of Omyst in my bag, and this was the perfect chance to test it out!

With the Omyst there is no need to worry about messy creams or covering the scratch to keep from getting the cream on your clothes, as air is essential in the healing process ( as we all know). You just clean up the wound with mild soap and water, then spray Omyst on ( from about 3 to 4 inches away) and you are set to go.
Normally any cut or scratch on Sassy takes about a week and a half to heal, and I was expecting the same with this one, but after applying the Omyst I notice visible improvement within a few days and the scratch was healed completely in a work week (5 days). Sassy didn’t complain of any burning or stinging when the Omyst was applied and she didn’t keep trying to scratch while it was healing, so that was a plus in my book!

Omyst is a healing herbal first aid spray that contains organically grown Calendula, Yarrow, Plantain & Wild Roses. Calendula is beneficial as an anti-inflammatory, Yarrow an antibacterial, Plantain and astringent and the Wild Roses are rejuvenating, all those wonderful plants together and you get a great smelling product!!

* Omyst was created by a Board Certified Family Nurse Practitioner and Herbalist with over twenty five years of emergency room experience and an expert on wound care.

You can purchase Omyst from the website for $20.00 or find in a retail store near you by using the store locator on the site.

You can find Omyst online on Facebook and Twitter also!
