Dearfoams Tweed Boot Review & Give-Away!!! 3 Winners!!! {Give-Away Ended}

I remember my first pair of Dearfoam slippers, so many years ago.  They were the quilted booty slipper that was so popular then. Dearfoams has come a long way since they began, and this season they have something totally new.  Dearfoams is  introducing their new line of tall fashion boots, that will extend Dearfoam’s comfort and warmth into a new genre of footwear.  They have two great styles and I chose the tweed boot in black to review.  I received them recently and they are so comfortable and warm.  I like that it has a sole because as a Mom, I am always having to run outside or hop in the car and these are great for that.  My 2-year-old likes to pet them, silly boy.  Today the weather has turned considerably cooler and I have been rockin’ these boots all day and my feet are cozy and warm. I absolutely adore that they are machine washable.  The foam cushioning is like walking on a cloud.  Can you tell that I like these?

The Original Butter Bell® Crock Review & Give-Away!!! {Give-Away Ended}

The Original Butter Bell® crock is a modern version of the authentic French beurrier. Made from high quality, durable New Bone China, the Butter Bell crock safely keeps butter at room temperature — on the counter or tabletop — without spoilage, refrigeration or odors. Through the study of traditional and historical butter storage methods, L. Tremain has recreated and improved this natural method of preserving the creamy texture and delicate flavor that makes butter the most desirable and most-used spread in the world.

The Butter Bell crock’s innovative design keeps butter at the perfect “spreading” consistency by reflecting outside heat while insulating and cooling the butter. Flavor and freshness is protected by an airtight seal of water at the base of the crock. For more information on how the Butter Bell crock works, click to see video .

The Butter Bell crock also allows for more measured control of butter application. In other words, you use less butter without sacrificing flavor — important for today’s health-conscious consumers.
We are big fans of spreadable butter in this house.  We keep our stick butter for baking and cooking but we buy those little tubs of spreadable butter with olive oil and canola oil for the kid’s toast, bread and waffels.  I was very intrigued when I saw that the Butter Bell Crock will turn a hard stick of butter spreadable and that it can be stored and kept fresh right on the counter.  I was asked to do a review and I gladly accepted.
When I received my Butter Bell Crock I washed it and then I filled it with 1/3 cup of cold water.  I then took a stick of butter out of the refridgerator and put it in pieces in the bell of the crock.  I then fitted the lid back on and left it on the counter all day.  Late in the evening I opened the crock to find that the butter was cool and perfectly spreadable.  I showed my husband and he thought it was pretty neat.  After seeing this for myself I think this is a great item that is really cost effective because it is cheaper to buy the stick butter and make your own spreadable butter.
The Original Butter Bell® Crock comes in so many different colors and styles. I am really excited to let you know that The Original Butter Bell® Crock is sponsoring a give-away on Mommy Ramblings.  One lucky blog reader will win their own Original Butter Bell® Crock, in the style and color of their choice.  Thank you  Original Butter Bell® Crock for the review crock and for sponsoring this great give-away on Mommy Ramblings!!!  Open to US Residents.

TheraPearl Hot & Cold Therapy Packs Review and Give-Away!!! {Give-Away Ended}

TheraPearl® hot & cold therapy packs are doctor designed to provide extraordinary relief from everyday aches and pains including inflammation, bruising, joint/muscle soreness and so much more! Pearls conform to the body while holding their healing temperatures for the doctor-recommended time (15-20 minutes) for optimal theraputic benefit. Freeze or microwave. Non-toxic and reusable. Latex, lead and BPA-free.

I was recently sent a few TheraPearl products for review.  I have to tell you these packs were kind of addictive to just rolling through your hands, right out of the package.  I received a Sports Pack, TheraPearl Pals Pig and Frog.  These packs can be heated in the microwave for hot pain relief or frozen.  I froze our packs, and it was not long before one of our little ones had a boo boo.  This cheery little pal brought a smile to my child’s face just upon seeing it.  Then, the cool pack provided great relief of his pain.  My kids liked these pals so much that on a hot day they would take one out of the freezer and just lie down with it.  They have been well used and still going strong.  Not long before sitting down to write this review, my son came in with the Frog Pal explaing he had hurt his finger.  TheraPearl has a great variety of sizes and shapes.  I would really like to try the eye mask.

Contigo AUTOSEAL® Madison Water Bottle – 24 oz, Review & Give-Away!!! {Give-Away Ended}

Contigo

Recently, I was sent a green Contigo AUTOSEAL Madison  24 oz. Water Bottle. When my four-year-old saw it, he declared it his, because it was his favorite color.  As we were heading out the door to his soccer game, I happily obliged.  Filling it with fresh ice and water, it took me just a few seconds to show him how to push the button on the back of the lid, so he could drink from it.  He thought that was pretty cool, and it was easy for him to handle.  He showed it to all his team mates and we have been using it ever since.  He even likes to  use it at home.  This bottle has an excellent seal that guarantees no leaks.  I have thrown the bottle in my diaper bag and it has been flipped around and no leaks.  The size is great and the quality is excellent. Comes in great colors, so you are sure to find your favorite. One of the things I really like, is that Contigo only makes BPA-Free Bottles.

Ollie & Bess Swing Dress Review & Give-Away!!! {Give-Away Ended}

I recently had the opportunity to choose an outfit from Ollie & Bess to review. I chose the adorable little swing dress with an orange and white circle pattern and navy ribbons! The style of this dress is so cute on little girls, and the colors are vibrant, I love the pattern! My little niece was the model for this dress and she looks absolutely adorable in it! I love how the straps are adjustable, so it fits her now, and will still fit her when she gets a little bigger! The fabric feels sturdy and should hold up nicely to her playing, and if she gets it dirty, it doesn‘t require anything more special than a cold water wash in the machine!!
Ollie and Bess Apparel was created by a mom who had a hard time finding traditional quality clothing for her daughter. All their material is hand-picked and made in the USA! They have a great line of high quality, classic children’s wear for both girls and boys. You also have the option to have your purchase monogrammed!
I am very pleased to let you know that Ollie & Bess is sponsoring a give-away on Mommy Ramblings.  One lucky blog reader will win the outfit of their choice (subject to availability).  Thank you Ollie & Bess for the review dress and for sponsoring such an adorable give-away on Mommy Ramblings!!!  Open to US Residents.

Circle of Friends, Lice Defense Family Kit Review & Give-Away!!! {Give-Away Ended}

COF_weblogo100w89h.jpg

I know the topic of lice is gross.  We never want our kids to get them.  We all know the feeling, your child comes home with a letter from the school nurse telling parents that lice is going around.  They give you some info, and just thinking about it, you start to itch.  Thankfully, I have never had to deal with my children getting lice and I hope I never will.  Circle of Friends has some great products to help keep things that way.  I was recently sent their Lice Defense Family Kit which includes, shampoo, conditioner, hair spray and styling gel.  These great products help keep lice and other insects from your child’s hair and scalp naturally with their unique blend of Tea Tree, Andiroba and Lavender oils. They also added Vitamin B-5 and glycerin to hydrate and soften your child’s hair.

Keeping the Bugs at Bay
When it comes to head lice the solution is usually focused on harsh, unpleasant treatments that
must be administered to children after the lice come home. But Circle of Friends is shifting the
focus to prevention. After all – isn’t preventing lice in the first place the most desirable option?
Introducing Lice Defense Shampoo and Leave-in Conditioner, a powerful – yet gentle duo that
deters lice naturally, leaving little noggins squeaky clean and insect free.
Tea Tree, Andiroba and Lavender Oils are the key ingredients that keep lice way safely and
naturally. Lemon Peel Oil acts as a natural cleanser, while Vitamin B-5 and Glycerin hydrate the
hair leaving it soft, manageable and free of tangles. And unlike those harsh, stinky and irritating
chemical treatments, with Lice Defense parents and children will actually enjoy bath time thanks
to its kid-pleasing lavender scent.

Usage
Use Lice Defense Shampoo several times a week when an outbreak of lice has been discovered in
your community until the outbreak is under control. It is gentle enough to use daily if preferred.
Spray Leave-in Conditioner on hair (wet or dry) each morning. The fine mist will coat the hair and
provide an extra lice deterrent. Lice do not like hair that has product on it, especially when that
product is infused with tea tree oil!

Did you know?
1. Back-to-school is when head lice are most commonly transmitted.
Failure of inspection and prevention in August to November can lead to
widespread infestations by December and January (University of
Florida).
2. There are 6 to 12 million cases of head lice in the United States
yearly, with an estimated 12 to 24 million days of missed school
(Medscape Medical News, 2006).
3. Treatment costs may vary from $20 for over the counter products
like RID Shampoo, to $200+ for a lice removal service.

Lice Facts
1. Lice are most often spread at schools, child care centers, slumber parties, camps, little
leagues (shared batting helmets) and playgrounds.
2. Children should avoid head-to-head contact with other children and should not share
hairbrushes, combs, hats, helmets, pillows, sleeping bags, etc.
3. Lice live exclusively on humans; they cannot be transferred to pets or vice versa.
4. Lice are not a sign of poor hygiene — they can be a problem for children of all ages and
socioeconomic status.

Keep Lice Defense on hand so that you are prepared when news spreads of a lice outbreak
in your community!

Lay-n-Go Luggage Review and Lay-n-Go Lite Give-Away!!! {Give-Away Ended}

As a busy mom, I am all about products that can make life easier for families.  How many times have you stepped on a loose Lego brick or Hot Wheels car?  If you are like me, more times than you care to count.  I was sent a Lay-n-Go Luggage to review and I have to tell you about this great product.  We tested this baby out and it passed with flying colors.  We opened it up, and the kids went around getting their cars, trucks, trains, and other rolling vehicles.  We placed them on the mat and let the kids play for a good long time.  Then, I was able to just pull the drawstring and get it all into a nice bag with a seat belt type strap that I could sling over my shoulder.  I can easily hang the bag up until the next time they want to play or it is great to transport when your child goes visiting.  It is so easy and it did pass the shake test.  This product definitely gets 2 thumbs up from Mommy Ramblings!!!  Watch videos of the Lay n Go in action, here.

Lay-n-Go Luggage (patent pending) is a 5 foot diameter activity mat that converts into an easily transportable shoulder satchel allowing for quick and effortless clean-up of small toy pieces.  Toy collections used on the Lay-n-Go surface are easily spread out (no dumping needed) for hours of fun. Once playtime is over, the drawstring is pulled and the activity mat is converted back into a completely sealed soft storage bag.  Lay-n-Go Luggage is a smart and easy activity mat, cleanup, storage and carry-all solution in one.

  • Outside fabrc is 100% denim to last for generations
  • Playside fabric is 100% nylon which is confortable to play on for hours yet provides a tough and water repellent wipeable surface
  • Available with blue or pink nylon
  • Four clear 7”x 6” pockets on the playside surface provide a great way to stash and organize the most valued mini-figures or extra special pieces
  • Durable nylon cord and cord lock provide an easy opening and closing system which keeps toys securely inside
  • A velcroed front storage pocket provides a place to stow the drawstring when closing or carrying the bag
  • Wide nylon shoulder strap adds both comfort and convienience for carrying

Shen the Panda Kit Review & Choice of Zylie the Bear or Shen the Panda Kit Give-Away!!! {Give-Away Ended}

I am so excited to tell you about Shen the Panda.  I recently received a Shen the Panda Kit to review from Zylie the Bear.  Shen is Zylie’s friend that she met in China. Shen is a great Panda who stands 18″ tall, he comes with a great outfit, backpack, drumsticks, passport and the second book in the Zylie Adventure Series.  Shen is a jointed Panda bear with great clothes and accessories who has fun adventures with Zylie all over the world.  Shen has 3 additional outfits that can be purchased called “Rockin in the Rain, Martial Artist and Panda Pajamas.” Your child will have so much fun with Shen who comes wearing his leather jacket, khakis and green t-shirt.  The quality of this bear is excellent and will stand up to lots of adventures and clothing changes.  He is so cute and all the detail on him and his clothing is just amazing.  What a great friend to any child and the books that go along encourage reading and creative play.
