Zubels 7" Rattle Knit Doll, 15% Discount, & FREE Parent Magazine Subscription

I have always been a stickler for safe, non-toxic toys and that is why I was so happy to get a chance to receive a Zubels Hand Knit Doll to review. Zubels are some of the finest hand made 100% cotton dolls in the world.  They've been sold in boutiques around the world for over 7 years and now they finally have an online store!

"Zubels were born of a creative group working together to bring smiles to children (and to us). There was a need for an eco-friendly yet purposeful toy whose only requirement was a little love and imagination."



Zubel Hand Knit Dolls come in 4 different sizes: 7" (with rattles), 12", 14" and 24". We received a 7" "Bruno Barkster" the Blue Dog Doll with a rattle inside to review. Z and I decided this would be such a greatpresent for my 6 month old niece for her half-birthday. Since they are non-toxic and made with 100% organic cotton, I feel safe letting her play with it. 

How cute is this hippo?!
The hippo is my favorite Zubel Knit Doll. I think Z would absolutely freak if she received the hippo one for her birthday since hippos are her favorite animal. And how cute is that elf?! If you're looking for the perfect gift for a child of any age, look no further because Zubels has such a large selection you're bound to find something perfect! 


I'm really proud to be in partnership with Zubels because they're a company that is committed 100% to providing their customers with safe, fun, imaginative toys. I just love that each one is handmade with love and care. I also love how reasonably priced these handknit dolls are, I don't think I've seen prices this low for hand knit, organic toys anywhere else!

Remedies Rainbow Cool Mist Humidifier Review & Giveaway

Spring has finally sprung in Michigan and it is absolutely glorious! The only unfortunate thing about this changing of seasons is the allergies that come along with it. My whole little family suffers from terrible seasonal allergies so we were really excited to try out the Remedies Rainbow Cool Mist Humidifier
to see if it would help.


I know how stressful it is when shopping for humidifiers and it seems like all of them have one bad quality or another. Well, I'm super happy with this humidifier and it has exceeded all of my expectations for it. Its very quiet, way quieter than my old Honeywell humidifier. I ran it on the highest setting all night and it worked amazingly and lasted for a little over 8 hours (which is great for the its size). I also really appreciated the detailed instruction and care booklet it came with as it explains literally anything you would need to know about this humidifier.

My daughter's favorite feature of the Remedies Humidifier is the LED light! She absolutely adores them and they have a nice calming effect on her, they're not too bright but not dim either. There are 7 different colors in this LED night light; yellow, orange, red, purple, indigo, blue, and green. You can set your favorite color or select color rotation option.

One of my favorite features of this humidifier (and a feature that makes it completely worth the money) is the Aroma Diffuser. Just add a little lavender oil for calmness or eucalyptus oil for stuffy noses! I think it's awesome that you can enjoy your favorite oil and water based aroma while humidifying the air.


Overall, I love this humidifier and my family and I have exceedingly happy with it! It runs the whole night without need to refill, the lights are calming, and the diffuser works wonders! We have absolutely no complaints about our new little humidifier! Plus, it comes with a 2 year warranty so be sure to get one for yourself and your family!

Are You A Believer in Liquid Gold (Otherwise known as Argan Oil)?

Sometimes my life and my blogging worlds collide. For instance, a couple weeks ago I was looking for something to help Z's dry skin so I was researching Argan Oil and that night, I actually got the opportunity to review some on my blog! Crazy coincidence much?!

I was looking at Argan Oil because I've heard great things about it for skin hydration and Z's skin gets so dry during the harsh, cold Michigan winters. Every year its been a struggle and I've been trying everything-- numerous lotions (even one her doctor recommended), coconut oil, different soaps and shampoos... nothing seems to keep her skin moisturized.


Argan Oil is known as "liquid gold" among the local women of Morocco and has been praised in the NY Times, Allure, Time, and CNN. Its great for hydrating skin and helping relieve skin conditions, and it also is great for you hair and prevents frizz while increasing natural hair shine and beauty.

I was excited to try the goPURE brand because its organic and made in the USA in an FDA Registered Facility. So far it seems to be working It comes in a glass bottle with a dropper. Plus with a 1 year 100% satisfaction guarantee or your money back promise, how could I say no? 

I have noticed Z's skin is a lot smoother now after using it for a weeks and I'm happy with the results. My sister-in-law has also been using this on her hair and she likes how light it feels, not too greasy and it does bring her natural shine out in her hair.

Have you ever tried Argan Oil before? Are you a believer in liquid gold?

You can buy your own goPURE Organic Argan oil on Amazon!

Oral Stericlean Uv Portable Toothbrush Sanitizer Review

You all should know by now that I'm a germaphobe and I'm always looking for ways to keep my life germ-limited (without introducing harmful chemicals to my home). I was so excited to try the Oral SteriClean UV Portable Sanitizer that I actually squealed at the chance to see if it works!

The Oral SteriClean UV Portable Sanitizer stores and sanitizes a single toothbrush (or electric toothbrush head) and is proven to kill harmful bacteria that causes infectious diseases, heart disease, stroke, respiratory infections, blood infections, ulcers, GI tract infections, gum disease, cavities, and life threatening diseases!


In fact, the Oral SteriClean is the only UV Toothbrush Sanitizer on the market with proven clinical data and it is manufactured in FDA registered facilities under manufacturing certifications that are specific to medical devices which follow stricter regulations to assure safety and effectiveness.

As soon as I received the Oral SteriClean in the mail, I popped a few batteries in (it takes 2 AA that are not included) and sterilized all of our toothbrushes. Each cycle only takes 6 minutes. 6 minutes to sterilize something that we put in our mouths at least twice a day? Yes, please! I'm a big fan of using UV lights as a sterilizing tool but my husband a little more on the hesitant side but he noticed instantly that his toothbrush didnt smell of anything. I guess it used to have a certain smell (toothpaste, maybe?) but he was really impressed that the scent was all gone and after only one cycle in the Oral SteriClean!


Now we sterilize all of our toothbrushes after (and sometimes before) using them and we can't imagine going without our portable sanitizer again! I am really considering buying the "Portable Family" size one because we constantly have trade off who uses this single one.

I cant gush enough about this portable sanitizer! I just love how sleek and slim it is; it is the perfect size to throw in your toiletry bag while traveling. You will never have to worry about where to store your toothbrush while traveling again, it will stay safe and clean with this!

Yorkshire-Mayfair Luxury Microfiber Sheet Set Review

My husband and I are absolute snobs when it comes to our bedding so I was hesitant to review this Luxury Microfiber Sheet Set from Yorkshire-Mayfair but I'm glad I did. This set includes a 4 piece sheet set that includes a flat sheet, fitted sheet and two pillowcases.

They are made of the highest quality heavy-weight luxury microfiber and they come in 10 different colors. Microfiber sheets are supposed to be more durable than cotton, hypoallergenic, and wrinkle resistant.  They are incredibly affordable yet nice and comfortable as well. This set has an extra deep pocket fit and the fitted sheet has not slipped off of my extra-deep mattress once and the flat sheet is the longest sheet I've ever seen for a Queen. 


I was sent Chocolate (randomly) and although brown would not have been my first choice, it actually goes pretty well with my red(ish) comforter and it has really grown on me. Just look how great it looks!


They aren't completely wrinkle-free but they do flatten out pretty well. They are also cool to touch and light so they will be so amazing during the summer. It looks nice and feels nice so we are overall very happy with it! If you buy them and aren't happy with them, no worries because they have a lifetime guarantee!

This Ain't Your Grandma's Bread Box-- Francois et Mimi Bread Box Review

Bread boxes remind me of my grandma. She has a wooden panel one that is probably from the 60s. I always thought it was a great idea to have something to hide the cluttering bags of bagels, bread, muffins, and buns.


The Francois et Mimi Stainless Steel Bread Box is absolutely gorgeous. The easy-access roll-top lid is made of a heavy duty, shatter-proof glass top. I seriously just love this bread box and it makes my countertops look great and uncluttered. The only issues I have is the legs are uneven so it wobbles a little but I think that is just the one I received.

Francois et Mimi Stainless Steel Bread Box Features
Easy-Access Roll-top Lid
Heavy Duty, Shatter-Proof Glass Top
Great for Bread, Bagels, Muffins and More!

This lovely bread box would make such a great housewarming, wedding, or birthday gift! It looks really nice and seems to be really great quality (and it looks like its high quality as well). I expect it to last several years. Its such a great solution to clutter in your kitchen and it adds a splash of uniqueness to your kitchen as well. I would highly recommend it to anyone in search of a breadbox.
