We all know that travelling with a baby is difficult at best.  Anything that makes our lives easier is a win in my book.  This set of three bamboo baby changing pad liners by Swaddlez is one of my favorite products.

Steve Maddon Leather Watch


Some of you know that Sam collects watches.  I’ve lost count of how many he has now.  When he says that he loves a watch, you know that it has passed a set of critical eyes.  This Steve Maddon leather watch just got an A!

This watch is gray with silver and blue complementary colors.  The second hand is in its own circle right above the number six.  Sam says he prefers that because you never mistake the time when you glance quickly at the watch. Continue reading →

Outdoor String Lights


I LOVE these outdoor string lights!!

I got these outdoor string lights for my mom.  She’s a little bit obsessed with lights.  Sam and I joke that her yard looks like a runway strip at night!  She has lights strung around tree trunks and solar lights around the perimeter of the property.

Yet out of all the lights she has, she loves this set the most! Continue reading →

Raw Activated Charcoal


I recently fell in love with raw activated charcoal powder because of its many uses. It draws out impurities and acts as a filter.  This is what’s inside the filters for your refrigerator water maker and the filtered water pitchers.  It cleans everything so well.   You can use it to whiten your teeth, as a facial mask, on burns and wounds, and as a detox. I love this activated charcoal powder by Moody Zook.

Activated Charcoal


I’ve only recently begun using activated charcoal powder. It has many beneficial uses. It draws out impurities and acts as a filter, so to speak. You can use it to whiten your teeth, as a facial mask, on burns and wounds, and as a detox. I love this activated charcoal powder by Sagano.

I dip my damp toothbrush lightly in the charcoal powder and then brush as usual. It’s a huge mess, as a full disclosure, but it does work as a tooth whitener. Afterward, I need to brush my teeth with toothpaste to get rid of the black that’s left behind. I haven’t used it for a facial mask, but I’m excited to try that soon. I imagine that it will draw out the nastiness that clogs pores. I’ve heard that you can mix classroom glue with the charcoal powder to rub into your face, then allow to dry. I can’t wait to try this. I heard it works like the blackhead removal strips.

I’ve found the quality of this activated charcoal powder to be very high. It’s food grade, so you don’t have to worry about ingesting it. In fact, it’s good to take a spoonful with water to help as a detox. It helps reduce gassiness and indigestion.

You get enough charcoal powder to last a LONG time, so there’s a big value here. I highly recommend it!  Get yours here!

No Tie Shoelaces


My dad is a diabetic and has issues with neuropathy and feet swelling up to twice their size.  It isn’t easy for him to put his shoes on or take them off. He keeps the laces extremely loose, so much so that they can’t be tied because there isn’t enough string left over.  I thought I would have him try these no tie shoelaces.

We only used the largest no-tie shoelaces in this pack on the holes closest to his toes. Then we added his shoelaces in the holes above them so that he had more room to actually tie his shoes. It worked great!

These shoelaces are made of what seems to be rubber. They have a fabric texture imprinted on them, though, so you really can’t tell the difference from far away.

It was pretty easy to put these laces in. Not too easy, though. If they’re too easy to put in, they’ll be too easy to come out.

Overall, we’re very happy with these, as they helped to solve a practical problem for my dad.  Get yours here!

Silicone Cooking Glove

For some reason, my kitchen stays hot.  I do cook a lot and use the oven most of the time, but it feels like you entered through the gates of hell.  Really.  You would think I wouldn’t mind getting all those hot casseroles, baking sheets, and iron skillets out of the oven.  I should be used to it, right?  Wrong.  I would be lost without a good silicone cooking glove.

I used to use the old-school square potholders and oven mitts.  You know the ones – your mom and grandma used them.  The problem is that they get so nasty.  That’s why using a silicone cooking glove is so popular.  Some stand out above the rest, though.

This silicone cooking glove by GM is ok.  It does the job of protecting you from heat.  It also helps you keep a good grip on hard-to-handle, hot dishes.  They can even help you open tight lids.  You get two gloves and a potholder in one bundle.  They’re super easy to wash by just throwing in the dishwasher or in the sink while you hand wash your dishes.

There are things that I don’t like about this silicone cooking glove, though.  First, I wish it came with a cotton lining to help prevent sweat.  You won’t wear it long, but it doesn’t take long for silicone to trap moisture. A cotton lining would help them stay comfortable and cool.

Second, my husband can’t wear this silicone cooking glove because the fingers are too small. Even though my hands are on the large side, this glove won’t go all the way over my fingers.

Overall, I think this silicone cooking glove comes at a reasonable price.  It would be a good choice for someone with small hands.  If your hands are larger, though, tread carefully.  You can get yours here.
