Coco's Closet Extend-A-Smidge Bra Extenders


Let's face it ladies, sometimes our bra's get too small. Even studies show that a woman's bra size can change over 6 times in her life! Whether it be during weight gain, pregnancy, or just natural growth, we will come across a bra that just feels too tight to wear. Instead of having to go out and buy a new one, why not extend the hooks with Coco's Closet Extend-A-Smidge Bra Extenders!

These extenders easily attach to your bra, with just a hook and a latch as you would any typical bra, giving you an extra 2 inches in length, and an ideal fit. The extenders have an ultra-soft backing so they are soft against your skin, and they are fully adjustable and sturdy
so you can feel comfortable and supported. They can be washed just as your bra can,
as they are built with durable materials and construction.

I received a pack of Coco's Closet Bra Extenders to review and love them! I can now wear my bra's that got a little too small...The extenders have been soft on my skin just as my normal bra is. My only suggestion is to make sure you get the right size of clasps. The pack I received are the 2 clasp ones, and I realized my bra is a 3 clasp so it looks kinda funny lol. But it still works great, just looks better with my 2 clasp bra. I'm extremely grateful for these extenders, as they have
saved me time and money, allowing me to wear my other bras.


  














Coco's Closet Bra Extenders are  available for purchase on Amazon 
with a 90 day 100% money back guarantee. They come in a pack of six: 
2 White, 2 Nude, and 2 black so they will match most your bras colors.

Making it difficult to choose, But after much decision, I chose to review the Happy Holiday set. Who could resist the Candy Cane and Gingerbread?! I was a little worried about the Christmas Tree candle scent, because smelling it straight to my nose, honestly I didn't like the scent. But after I lit the candle and the aroma filled the area I was in, I found it to be not so bad!  I realized the longer the candle is lit, the more potent the scent becomes, but nothing over powering. It has the scent of a Christmas tree and when you blow it out, it smells slightly like lemons! The Candy Cane scent smells more natural then I expected, which is probably a good thing lol. Most Candy Cane scented candles have a really strong sweet smell, which I love, but it's probably not as healthy for you to breath in.
Old Factory's candy cane scent has a more subtle minty smell, still very enjoyable. And the Gingerbread candle? Oh my, this one smells delicious! Just as you would imagine a gingerbread candle should smell. It's sweet and reminds you of the Fall and Christmas time. I love each one of these candles.
They are amazing and so fun, don't let their small size stray you away.
Since they can burn for over 20 hours, they should last you all through a holiday season.

Boho Mama Breastfeeding Wrap


Are you a breastfeeding mama, looking for the perfect breastfeeding cover?
Check out the Boho Mama Breastfeeding Wrap! It's not only a wrap, it is also a shawl, a scarf, a shirt cover, and more! This wrap is so versatile, it has at least 12 different ways you can wear it! You can even use it to cover your baby's car seat or stroller to protect them from the sun, wind and dust. Because of its luxurious design, the Boho Mama wrap will accentuate your curves while pregnant, and cover the after baby weight you might be wanting to hide; as well as keeping your discreet and covered while nursing your beautiful baby!









One of the benefits to this wrap that many other breastfeeding wraps do not have, is that this one doesn't fall forward or gape at the sides, so you won't accidentally expose yourself. It has tiny popper snaps that keep you covered, even when baby is wriggling around. The wrap drapes beautifully over you and baby, no matter your size.

The Boho Mama Breastfeeding Shawl is made of organic Bamboo modal with a touch of spandex for comfort and shape. It is lightweight and breathable, and allows you and your baby to stay cool. It can fold up really small, making it a great fit for your diaper bag, and the fabric does not crease so it looks as good as knew, right from the bag! This shawl is so soft and cool, making it a great product! The thin fabric is stretchy and durable, making it comfortable to use at any stage. I love how it can not only be used in breastfeeding and prebaby, but also used to shield dust from your babies carseat! It has so many good things about it, both you and your baby will love it!

*This wrap is should never be used as a baby sling or carrier.

Warm Up With Tazo Chai Tea + $2 off Coupon!

As a member of Smiley360 I received a Tazo Chai Tea Smiley Kit to review! 

I absolutely love tea, especially Chai, as it is my favorite.
Chai is a blend of black tea with herbs and spices, such as cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, and ginger, making a delicious aromatic tea you can enjoy. I love that TAZO came out with new flavors for this Fall season: Vanilla Caramel, Pumpkin Spice, and Chocolate, as well as their Classic and Organic. Each blend is gently flavored with natural flavoring and spices, making a delicious drink you can sip on, hot or cold. These teas are available in latte concentrates, which are cartons of premade tea that you add to milk or milk substitute, or the typical filter bags that you brew on your own, and can add milk too as well.

I was lucky to try the TAZO Vanilla Caramel, Chocolate, and Classic Chai's, but have yet to find the Pumpkin Spice. The Vanilla Caramel Chai is delicious! I brewed the filterbag, and added in milk and honey, it tastes like a warm Cinnamon Roll!! So delicious. The Chocolate Chai was an interesting flavor. I wouldn't say this one was very good, in my opinion, because I prefer chocolate to eat, then drink...unless it's chocolate milk of course ;) And the Classic Chai was as good as Chai Tea should be! I'm really hoping I can find the TAZO Pumpkin Spice Chai in stores nearby soon, as I would love to try this. But every time I've gone to the store, they're already sold out so it must be good!

 You can find more information and other TAZO tea products by visiting tazo.com as well as finding them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest
 You can also get a $2.00 off coupon for any TAZO Chai tea product by visiting TAZO and entering in your email. Check it out here.

Jiva Organics Whole Cloves + A Tea Recipe!



"Jiva means Life" and with Jiva Organics, you get quality products from a small family business that is driven
by the care and respect for life, people and the environment.
Their products are completely natural, certified organic,
and 'grown with an underlying philosophy that promotes sustainability of mother Earth for the present and future generations.' Their products are all free from artificial flavors
and preservatives, and grown on organic toxic-free farms.

I was recently sent the Jiva Organics Whole Cloves 
to review and have been very pleased with them.

Cloves are flower buds that come from the evergreen Clove Tree, native to the Maluku Islands in Indonesia. They are commonly used as a spice in gingerbread and pumpkin pie, but can also
be found in soups, chili's, marinades curries, and many other dishes, as well as used for room fragrance, bug repellents,
and for medicinal purposes. There are many uses for cloves,
whether it be in oil, powder, or whole form.
                                   Here are a few of my favorite:

Using cloves as an aromatic air freshener, by either making your own potpourri mix, or your own Clove Pomander. To make this, you take an orange and insert several cloves into it, then attach a ribbon or string to the orange and hang it from the ceiling. This not only works as an air freshener, but as a fly deterrent, and respiratory aid too! It lasts for about 6 months (or when the orange begins rotting lol), and once it looses its scent, you can remove the cloves and slightly crush them, bringing the scents vibrancy back. You can then make a potpourri from this, using the crushed cloves and dried orange peels.

You can also use cloves for toothaches. You can either chew on a whole clove, or put a few in a cheesecloth, wrap it up and crush the cloves in it. Then place it in your mouth where the toothache is, letting your saliva moisten it, and it will numb the area, helping ease the tooth pain. I have done this before with clove oil on a cotton ball, and it worked really well for a few days! Just beware that the Eugenal in clove oil can be toxic so don't swallow it.

I also like to have whole cloves in tea. Here is the recipe I use, found from Be Spoke Spices:

2 Cups of Water
1 Teaspoon Whole Cloves
1/2 Teaspoon Grated Nutmeg
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
A Few Drops of Lemon Juice (optional)
                                                                       Honey or Agave Nectar (optional) 

 To make this tea, you slightly crush the cloves and add them to a saucepan with the nutmeg
and cinnamon. Add the water and heat to boiling. Once it starts boiling, turn the heat down
and let it simmer for 2-3 minutes. Turn off the heat and allow it to steep for 5 minutes,
then pour through a tea strainer, into your cup, and add the optional lemon and honey.
Enjoy your delicious clove tea and its wonderful benefits

What are your favorite uses for Cloves?

Jiva Organic Whole Cloves are available in a 3.5oz. resealable bag, for purchase on Amazon 
for under $15. You can also find more information, as well as other Jiva products at jivaorganicfoods.com as well as on their Facebook page.

Personalized Children's Book Review


I recently got to review a personalized children's book from KD  Novelties, and chose the book  Dinosaur Land for my son. In this book, the main character, your child's personalized name, magically travels back to the time of dinosaurs and ends up in a tropical forest to save the giant creatures from an erupting volcano. Your child saves the day and becomes the hero in magical dinosaur land!

I loved receiving Dinosaur Land for my son. He is at that age where he has learned how to read, and is getting better by the day, 
but just doesn't have a huge interest in it just yet. Reading a story where he is the main character, definitely holds in his interest. 
I think it helps him visualize the story better, keeping him interested in it longer, because he wants to hear more about this adventure he is on. This is a great book for my son, and getting to read a book with his own name in it, makes it so much more fun!
 




Personalized children's books help build self esteem
in children, and give them a want to read, 
because they get to read about themselves
 in a new adventure. This also brings imagination 
and magic into their lives, giving them a new love for reading. This is a great gift idea for all the children in your life. The pictures on each page are colorful and vibrant, with a story of adventure, where the child
 is the star! A gift every child would love.




Dinosaur Land is available at KD Novelties, for personalization, in a 6 x 9 hard cover book with 24 pages full of colorful illustrations. You can also find several different books, DVD's, and music to choose from; Anywhere from Sesame Street to Super Heroes and Princesses to Mother Goose, there is something for every child. They also have personalized book baskets made for every occasion! 

You can find more information and amazing personalized gift ideas at KDNovelties.com 
as well as on Twitter and Facebook.

Momma Bear Baby Gender Reveal Kit + GIVEAWAY!


When you're pregnant, you become curious from day one, what your growing baby will be. With the Momma Bear Baby Gender Reveal test kit, you can find out as early as 6 weeks into your pregnancy!

*Inside this kit there are: 
2 test tubes, 2 no needle syringes, a small cup, and a 1pink and 1blue balloon.
It contains two tests so you can use them different days, or share with a friend! 
The kit is simple to use, quite similar to some pregnancy tests. In the morning after waking up,
take the small cup, and catch a sample from your urine flow. Before opening the cap of the test tube, carefully tap the tube to settle the powder on the bottom of the tube, then you take the syringe to collect the urine, and squeeze it into one test tube, to the fill line. Securely replace the cap back on the tube and shake for ten seconds or until the powder is dissolved. If the liquid turns the color green,
it's a boy, if it turns the color purple, it's a girl! Easy as that. The results are 100% accurate half of the time...meaning just 50% accurate, although the back of the box in the photo on Amazon claims that their results have been highly accurate, I don't suggest you start purchasing gender specific items
until you get the Dr.'s confirmation on what the gender is.

To be honest, I was slightly dissapointed in this test. On Amazon, the photo's show the Momma Bear Baby Gender test box (photo to the left), so of course you assume it will come in the adorable little bear box. But it came in a cardboard package. (photo to the right) Nothing cute about it. Then I realized on Amazon, under the Legal Disclaimer it says "Actual product packaging and materials may contain more and different information than what is shown on our website."  This seems dishonest and they shouldn't be advertizing the box if they don't even use it.. At $19.99 on sale, (when it is normally $39.99+) I feel this test should come a bit more professional. Especially if you want to get it as a gift to give someone, the packaging isn't very appropriate. It seems like the price should more realistically be five dollars or less. Aside from the packaging, the test is a fun experiment, even if it is only 50% accurate. However, I do wonder if the results will ever turn purple for the testee who is pregnant with a girl, because the powder inside is blue, with only a tiny amount of pink. If you mix your yellow urine with the blue powder, it makes you think it will automatically turn green right? So it would be cool to get the results from a woman who already knows she is having a girl. That way you can see if this test would be legit,
and turn purple at some point. Though I'm not pregnant right now, this test will be so much fun
to experience. I'm just hoping that time will come soon! ;-)

Momma Bear Baby Gender Kit is used for entertainment purposes only, and can be a fun addition to a baby shower, or given as a gift to an expecting mom. You can purchase it on Amazon on sale right now for $19.99 with a guarantee for accurate results or you get your money back!
