ShāToBu™

So, summer is coming up. Oh, how I have a love hate relationship with Summer. I love it because I get to get out of this darn house and watch the kiddos play but hate it because I dream swim suite time. My kids are like fish, they live in the pool at Summer time. I am always looking for a bathing suite to 'slim me down' and it's hard. So luckily I found a company that can help me before the swim suite count down! ShāToBu™ It's a product that you could actually wear and burns up to 12% more calories during normal activities! ShāToBu™ offers a variety of shapewear that is designed to helps give you are more smooth appearance while also burning extra calories with scientifically placed resistance.

"Independent scientific studies from the University of Virginia show that women who wear ShaToBu during daily activities burn UP TO 12% MORE calories during daily activities like walking or climbing stairs.
With the modern woman's hectic schedule it can be hard to find time to get to the gym, but with ShaToBu, women can fit a workout into their daily routine while enjoying a more shapely silhouette!"

How does it work?
"ShaToBu is based on the principle of resistance training. This simple, ingenious technology uses seamless resistance bands to make muscles work a little harder during natural movement, like walking or climbing stairs, while remaining comfortable underneath your clothes."

I was sent ShāToBu™ High Waist to Knee Shaper




Designed for those women who prefer slightly more form with their function, our classic-cut, High Waist to Knee ShaToBu slims and smoothes your waistline for an enhanced hourglass figure.

You'll look great and feel even better, all while burning up to 12% more calories every day.

* Extra smoothing in the tummy & love-handle area
* The perfect shapewear under a skirt or dress
* Ideal body shaper for special occasions or with fitted clothing

You can choose buff or black and sizes up to small to 3xl

My review:
I was home cleaning when I remembered I had ShāToBu™ to review. Why not kill 2 birds with one stone. I would love to burn extra calories while cleaning! So, I went to put it on and it was so small, I though I would never fit in to it!But I did, a little stretching is all it took! I felt a little extra resistance but its subtle enough to still be a comfortable fit for frequent wear. I knew it was doing it's job. I continued cleaning with it on for about a hour and felt great. I love the idea of it! I would recommended any women who's looking for a little extra help.It makes me want to work out just having it on!

1 other fun note:
With regular use 12 hours a day, 7 days a week, a woman can potentially burn up to 30,000 extra calories in one year with ShaToBu” =))

Sew loved boutique


Sew Loved Boutique carries vintage and upcycled clothing. The boutique specializes in handmade custom designed tutus, tutu dresses, pillowcase dresses, ACU designs, halter dresses, halter tops, skirts, bows, headbands, fabric flowers, and embroidery.

Here is how Sew loved boutique got started.From the owner,Rebecca:
I started my business in 2010 while my husband was deployed in Iraq. I wanted something for "me" to be proud of and I enjoyed making tutus and dresses for my daughter, and I was going to school for Fashion merchandising so I decided to take a chance. =)

I am GLAD she took that chance! Her tutus are extremely full and fluffy! I received a hot pink tutu w.a dainty little flower to match. Her tutu's are the best quality, fullness, curtest I've ever reviewed. When I received it, it was packaged very nicely so the tutu don't get all knotted and wrinkled. Here is my daughter modeling it:

By the looks of her face, you can really tell that she was feeling her tutu ;D
She thought she was just a little diva in it! Isn't that how little ones should feel in a tutu ;D So, her big sis put on some Justin Bieber and they danced for a hour in her tutu! She would "shake it" in her tutu! It was the cutest thing ever!

Not only does she make beautiful tutu's she also makes
tutu dresses

The Daddy's girl is a one of a kind sewn tutu dress with a twist! This dress is made with Army ACU uniform fabric and tons of coordinating tulle! I have attached a fabric flower on a removable clip, for a touch of sweetness.

Pillowcase dresses


Headpieces to match tutu and tutu dresses





I highly recommend all her items!

Where to buy? She has a facebook page and a etsy!

check her out!!

Cute as a button towels


Do your kids pull towel off the rack when they go to dry their hands and then NOT put them back. Mine do!! Your little ones probably do too ;D So, I've found a genius product made by a mom. Cute as a button hand towels. There are 2 buttons that let you button your towel to your rod. Now, you don't have to keep picking up the towel from the floor! Yay!

Here is the one I was sent to review:

From there website:Each Cute as a Button Hand Towel begins with a thick, white 16" x 30", 100% cotton towel and is finished with 100% polyester grosgrain ribbon. We make each with the utmost care and attention to detail. And they are proudly made in the USA. And a portion of every purchase is donated to the American Heart Association!

There are plenty of other designs besides the "beach" theme I received. Here are a few:




Fun huh? Click here to see all there wide variety of towel designs maybe they have one for your bathroom or kitchen.

Bummas

I would hat to see the total amount of baby wipes I've purchased in 2 years!! Ahhh!

Thankfully, I came to my scents and started using home made baby wipes and wipe solution. Since my daughter started potty training she don't use regular tolite paper, at least not right now, so I make her some home made wipe solution and use Bummas =) Thanks to Bummas they help me cut my cost in half! Besides saving money using Bummas you can virtually eliminate irritating diaper rash without the use of powders, talcs, and ointments.

What are Bummas?
Bummas are small soft, luxurious baby-sized cloths made especially for drying baby bottoms, as well as blocking those surprise squirts. And with a little douse of water, they can also replace wet wipes for clean up of sensitive bums. They are small enough to conveniently carry on the go and durable enough to wash over and over again and won’t pill shrink or fade.

I was sent a pack of "wild ones" Bummas for this review.


SO Swap out your commercial wipes an us Bummas instead...over and over and over and over!!

Hard Candy

When I first heard of Hard Candy I was a teen.I remember there nail polish that came with a ring!! Which is still available today.


Remeber?! =)
While they have some hot bold colors they also have some every day looks. Like this Plumping Serum=Fat Pout Lip Gloss. I had the pleasure of reviewing this and there Eye Def- High def glittering cream eye shadow!


The color I recived was Cake walk (love there names btw)
This is a pretty pink gloss with a tab bit of glitter. You can wear it everyday.
So, I put this gloss on felt a little bit of a tingle. It slightly plumped up my lips. My lips are already some what big to start with lol. But, I loved the color.

This is the other item I got to review:

Eye Def - high def glittering cream eye shadow color:algae

Eye Def is a unique formulation that coats the lid with fine glitter and a base shadow color.Coverage and sparkle in one application that lasts all day! Ultra pigmented shades infused with flecks and an over-sized, angled, doe foot applicator.

I'll be honest, I wasn't lovin' the color. Green don't look good on me. Other than me not loving the color this eye shadow is a stick not a powder. It goes on a little wet but dries instantly. So, you don't need a primer, this eye shadow stays put! Just look at the shine it will give your eyes!

Now that's a lot of glitter!

If this green isn't for you it comes in other colors like,blue, purple, teal, pink and a few other colors.

You can purchase Hard Candy at your local Walmart!

Tommee Tippee


Tommee Tippee is the number-one brand of infant and toddler feeding products in Great Britain. Beginning in late January, Babies“R”Us stores in the United States, and at online at Babiesrus.com/tommeetippee will now carry the Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature and Explora infant and toddler feeding products. In April, the collection will be available in Toys“R”Us stores nationwide.

Leak proof sippy cups , mom's best friend!

My daughter is 2 and still uses a 'sippy cup' for the car rides.I don't leave home with out a sippy cup, and she don't let me! Tommee Tippee has made a genius sippee flip straw cup for ages 12 months and older.
Here is what it looks like:
Right away I took these out and told my daughter that these were her "water cup" she was excited to use them. I really like the flexi straw. There's no way your little one can bite threw them! I also like them becuase it's better for there teeth. Aposted to the hard plastic cups. The only thing I didn't like about these cups are, it was hard to get the water out of them. My toddler had to suck really hard to try and get the water out. So, I tried to see why she was so frustrated for, and it was. You don't get much water out of them. But, there easy to clean. The straw comes off for easy clean. I liked that you can get 2 of them in a pack. So , if your walking out the door and don't have time to clean 1 you can use the 2nd one.

You can buy and find all of Temmee Tippe products at Babiesrus.com/tommeetippee.

Karen Pelley - Director and Independent Scentsy Consultant


I use to be a candle person but ever since I daughter I'm afraid to keep them lit. So when I keep hearing all this buzz about Scentsy I was curious. So I got a chance to do a review on Scentsy!! I was thrilled!! Being in a house hold of 6 I try my best to keep our home smelling nice. Like I said candles, don't work for us anymore, air fresheners sprays, don't work and if you spray too much it chokes you! Plug ins are ok, those fade out quickly. But when I tried Scentsy's FLAME LESS candles, I was hooked! Right away I got it out of it's package and it was so so simple to put together.

How do they work? Plug in bulb, plug in, place 1-2 bars on top and turn on and enjoy!!! It didn't take but maybe 10 mins for the aroma of toasted almond butter. It was blissful! It had a hint of cinnamon. I loved it! Also, when you turn the lights out, it glows!


I got to review this full size warmer.Make a statement in any room with a Full-Size Scentsy Warmer. With so many styles, colors, and finishes to choose from, we’ve made it easy to find the perfect accent to complement your decorating style. One of our new warmers might even be the inspiration for your next room makeover!

Just look at some other beautiful warmers from Scentsy:




Pick up some yummy smelling sents to go with your warmer to smell up your whole house. 1 pack of scents is the equivalent of a 12 oz. candle. Do these sound good to you?
sticky cinnamon bar
Twilight bar
Hazelnut latte
Pineapple paradise
Pumpkin roll
Black raspberry vanilla!

So treat yourself. To buy go here. Karen is always having specials on her Facebook page.

what ever aspiring parent needs to know, the 11 step program...

What EVERY aspiring parent NEEDS to know..
The 11 Step Program...


Step 1

1. Go to the grocery store.
2. Arrange to have your salary paid directly to their head office.
3. Go home.
4. Pick up the paper.
5. Read it for the last time.

Step 2

Before you finally go ahead and have children, find a couple who already are parents and berate them about their...
1. Methods of discipline.
2. Lack of patience.
3. Appallingly low tolerance levels.
4. Allowing their children to run wild.
5. Suggest ways in which they might improve their child's breastfeeding, sleep habits, toilet training, table manners, and overall behavior.
Enjoy it because it will be the last time in your life you will have all the answers.

Step 3

A really good way to discover how the nights might feel...
1. Get home from work and immediately begin walking around the living room from 5PM to 10PM carrying a wet bag weighing approximately 8-12 pounds, with a radio turned to static (or some other obnoxious sound) playing loudly. (Eat cold food with one hand for dinner)
2. At 10PM, put the bag gently down, set the alarm for midnight, and go to sleep.
3. Get up at 12 and walk around the living room again, with the bag, until 1AM.
4. Set the alarm for 3AM.
5. As you can't get back to sleep, get up at 2AM and make a drink and watch an infomercial.
6. Go to bed at 2:45AM.
7. Get up at 3AM when the alarm goes off.
8. Sing songs quietly in the dark until 4AM.
9. Get up. Make breakfast. Get ready for work and go to work (work hard and be productive)

Repeat steps 1-9 each night. Keep this up for 3-5 years. Look cheerful and together.

Step 4

Can you stand the mess children make? T o find out...
1. Smear peanut butter onto the sofa and jam onto the curtains.
2. Hide a piece of raw chicken behind the stereo and leave it there all summer.
3. Stick your fingers in the flower bed.
4. Then rub them on the clean walls.
5. Take your favorite book, photo album, etc. Wreck it.
6. Spill milk on your new pillows. Cover the stains with crayons. How does that look?

Step 5

Dressing small children is not as easy as it seems.
1. Buy an octopus and a small bag made out of loose mesh.
2. Attempt to put the octopus into the bag so that none of the arms hang out.

Time allowed for this - all morning.

Step 6

Forget the BMW and buy a mini-van. And don't think that you can leave it out in the driveway spotless and shining. Family cars don't look like that.
1. Buy a chocolate ice cream cone and put it in the glove compartment.
Leave it there.
2. Get a dime. Stick it in the CD player.
3. Take a family size package of chocolate cookies. Mash them into the back seat. Sprinkle cheerios all over the floor, then smash them with your foot.
4. Run a garden rake along both sides of the car.

Step 7

Go to the local grocery store. Take with you the closest thing you can find to a pre-school child. (A full-grown goat is an excellent choice). If you intend to have more than one child, then definitely take more than one goat. Buy your week's groceries without letting the goats out of your sight. Pay for everything the goat eats or destroys. Until you can easily accomplish this, do not even contemplate having children.

Step 8

1. Hollow out a melon.
2. Make a small hole in the side.
3. Suspend it from the ceiling and swing it from side to side.
4. Now get a bowl of soggy Cheerios and attempt to spoon them into the swaying melon by pretending to be an airplane.
5. Continue until half the Cheerios are gone.
6. Tip half into your lap. The other half, just throw up in the air.

You are now ready to feed a nine- month-old baby.

Step 9

Learn the names of every character from Sesame Street , Barney, Disney, the Teletubbies, and Pokemon. Watch nothing else on TV but PBS, the Disney channel or Noggin for at least five years. (I know, you're thinking What's 'Noggin'?) Exactly the point.

Step 10

Make a recording of Fran Drescher saying 'mommy' repeatedly. (Important: no more than a four second delay between each 'mommy'; occasional crescendo to the level of a supersonic jet is required). Play this tape in your car everywhere you go for the next four years. You are now ready to take a long trip with a toddler.

Step 11

Start talking to an adult of your choice. Have someone else continually tug on your skirt hem, shirt- sleeve, or elbow while playing the 'mommy' tape made from Lesson 10 above. You are now ready to have a conversation with an adult while there is a child in the room.


Stole this from a Facebook friend.. Couldn't resist.. It was tooo funny NOT to share
