Snuggle Exhilarations Fabric Softener

Did you know that November is Sleep Comfort Month?

What a great time to enjoy the new
 Snuggle Exhilarations Liquid Fabric Softener
As a member of the Snuggle Bear Den, I was sent a bottle of Snuggle Exhilarations
Liquid fabric softener in the scent White Lavender & Sandalwood and it smells amazing!


Fabric Softener is not only great for softening your clothing and fabrics, but it also freshens
while decreasing wrinkles and reducing static cling. This is especially great for these cold winter days where our laundry likes to hold in more static electricity! Using fabric softener helps us to smell and feel amazing. My favorite use for liquid fabric softener is to use with my towels and bedding. There's nothing like stepping out of the shower into a fresh smelling towel, or crawling into a bed that smells like heaven. Plus the lavender is known to help ease the pains of insomnia and anxiety! I love the smell of Snuggle and have very much enjoyed cuddling into my bed of good smells! The only thing I would change is I would love the scent to linger a bit longer. Aside from that, fabric softener is easy to use, adding to your washing machines automatic dispenser, or to your final rinse load while washing. You can fill the liquid in the premeasured lid cup, at 1 for small loads, up to 4 for heavy larger loads.
*Remember to never add the liquid softener directly on clothing, as this could give it spots.

The bottle I received contains 50 loads to use, but Snuggle Exhilarations Liquid Softener is also available in 36 & 96 loads, as well as 70 & 105 box of fabric softening sheets. You can also find this liquid fabric softener in the scents Blue Iris & Bamboo Silk, Wild Orchid & Vanilla, and Sweet Blossom & Wildflower. You can find Snuggle products in several stores near you. Feel free to use the Product Finder on Snuggles website to locate the nearest Snuggle product closest to you.

Furry Logic - Book Review

Furry Logic is an adorable book written by Jane Seabrook, filled with illustrated animals and funny sayings about life, love and everything in between. This is the 10th Anniversary Edition book, being the ninth in series, and holds some of Jane Seabrooks very first paintings. Each illustration is made with watercolor and fine details, making sweet expressive images and very enjoyable art.

Take a glance at the cover, how can you resist the sweet
little cat face? When you open the book, you will find a guide
to many humorous quotes to go with each beautiful illustration.
There is a different animal on every page, some you will want to cuddle, some that will make you say "aw"and some
                          you will find yourself laughing out loud to!

Out of all the 96 pages of cuteness, This one has to be my favorite. Look at the baboons snarl! It is just too funny! This illustration goes perfectly with the words it has been put next to. "I have one nerve left, and you're getting on it." I'm sure we all feel this way every now and then. But if you're feeling down or just filled with frustration...Furry Logic is a great book to pick up and bring you back to your senses.

If you're looking for a quick, witty and inspirational read, then Furry Logic is for you. 
This would make a great little gift for your friend or family! My son loved reading it!

Furry Logic is available for purchase in hardcover, as well as many
 other Jane Seabrook books, at randomhouse.com for $9.99

Express Creativity with Liquid Chalkers!


Liquid Chalkers are an exciting way to release the creativity in you or your little ones. They are like markers, but are filled with liquid chalk and can be used to write or draw on mirrors, chalkboards, windshields, whiteboards, glass windows,
art projects, ceramics, and more!

To use, you must first press down on the Chalkers marker tip several times, until you begin to see the liquid. This can feel like a nuisance on the first use, but after you get that out of the way, your markers are good to go! Make sure you test a small spot on the surface you will be using, and do not use it on porous surfaces as this could cause it to permanently stick.

 The chalkers are so easy to use, and so much fun!
They are dustless, they don't smear, and you won't have excess ink running down the surface your drawing on. Each marker tip is a 6mm chisel tip, so you can write with precision
and fill large areas that need coloring in.


When I first received the Liquid Chalkers, I went straight to my bathroom mirror. After buffering up the tips, I drew a series of hearts on my mirror. I love how smooth the chalkers write, and the design comes right off with a swipe of cloth. No scrubbing needed! These chalkers are amazing!  I love Liquid Chalkers!! They are so fun to write on windows and mirrors. I can imagine every holiday, where I will use the liquid chalk markers. We have a sliding glass door in our living room, plus very large windows throughout our home, a glass shower door, and large mirrors in both bathrooms, I will be taking advantage of these markers with all the surfaces to draw on! Liquid Chalkers will make our day to day holidays so much more exciting, and especially more colorful.

You can find Liquid Chalkers available for purchase at liquidchalkers.com 
as well as on Amazon, retail for $18.99 a set.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

100% Pure Organic Yacon Syrup + GIVEAWAY!


Pure Organic Yacon Syrup is a quality sugar substitute that is made from the Yacon plant found in Peru and other parts of South America. The Yacon is often referred to as a Peruvian ground apple, and is much like a jicama or sweet potato. This fruitlike vegetable can be eaten plain, dried into a powder, or cooked into a syrup or a tea. It is a natural source of fiber and promotes a healthy digestive balance and good probiotic function, by slowing food transit time,
and supporting healthy blood sugar levels that can assist
in reducing food craves and assist in weight loss.

Yacon Syrup can be used as an alternative sweetener, so it's great for baking with or adding in your tea or coffee, making it a much better sugar substitute for people battling diabetes or trying to keep their sugar levels down. Yacon is also great for reducing glucose levels in the blood, and fighting high cholesterol, as well as building up the body's immune system and helping it fight off infections.

A nice side effect in using Yacon Syrup is that it naturally increases your energy levels, helps curve your appetite, and increases your resting metabolic rate. Because of this, many people consider Yacon syrup to be a fat burner. Though it will increase your fat burn and reduce bad cholesterol, it wont make you jittery or nervous like a lot of caffeinated products would. It will work with your digestive track and give you natural energy from the foods you eat, without storing the excess fat from it.

I was excited to try Yacon syrup because of its great health benefits and I love the fact that you can use it in your tea or bake with it. When it arrived, I shook the bottle so it would gather everything that may have settled, and I opened it up and noticed some sludge on the inside. I suppose this is normal as the liquid will settle from sitting, but since I shook it, I was shocked to see the sludge still there (see photo below), but after a few more shakes, the sludge was gone. The color of the syrup is dark, much like the color of molasses, but the texture is more like maple syrup.
 
My first taste of Yacon syrup was so familiar, I just can't figure out where I've had this taste before! It's a sweet flavor that is hard to explain...a lot of people have said it tastes like chocolate but I don't really get that. Maybe slightly but I get more of a dark fruity taste, and it's actually pretty good after the first initial try. I tried a spoon of it in my tea, but couldn't taste it so I still felt the need to use sugar. This was kind of disappointing, as I was hoping the Yacon Syrup would be all I needed for sweetness but it's surprisingly not that sweet unless you take it straight by itself. I love that Yacon syrup helps boost the immune system, especially with Winter coming, and the cold seasons setting in. I've also noticed the boost of energy the Yacon Syrup has been giving me! I use it per directions on the bottle, of a teaspoon 3 times a day, and I've noticed a difference in my energy. This has been great for sluggish days! So far I am loving it!

*Yacon Syrup is 100% organic and does not contain any traces of soy, wheat, gluten, flour, or dairy. It is USA made, FDA Approved and GMP certified.

 An 8fl oz bottle of BRI Nutrition's Yacon Syrup, holds 48 servings, at 1tsp a serving size. 
It can be purchased at brinutrtion.com for $19.95 or on Amazon for $19.95 with 
Free shipping if you have Amazon Prime.

I love this idea, because let's face it, when we're sick we really don't want to eat or drink much of anything. But for some reason, Popsicle always call our name. The cool sensation filling our mouths and running down our throat, soothing the burn our throat may feel, Popsicles always seems to make us feel at least a tad bit better. Between the two flavors of Soothie Pops, I preferred grape. The orange tasted a lot like Apricots and was really tart, but the grape was sweet, and tasted just like a grape Popsicle should taste. Having the added immune support is especially good in helping us get better quicker! I think almost every kid would love these pops, and parents can feel good about
giving them to their children.
