Spooky Wax Warmer review and giveaway!

wax  warmer 

I love a good candle but I am way to forgetful to burn them all the time. I always seem to leave them burning when we leave the house so I had to resort to using something that gives off just as much scent but more safe for my house with 4 kids!

If you haven’t used a wax warmer before, you should try one! These spooky halloween/fall theme wax warmers are literally my favorite thing right now!

Just in time for the fall and  halloween season, Halloween Forevermore just released these amazing wax warmers!

The one I was sent for review is call the boneyard jacks since my table is very fall themed at the moment but to be honest, they have such cute warmers, it was hard to decide! I really like this one below called “The Undertaker” and I know my kids would have loved the one that looks like a cute little ghost!

Get your order in quick because it’s almost time to start decorating for halloween and with the pumpkin themed warmer you can use it to decorate for fall now!

Go here to order one! 

warmer 

If you have never used a wax warmer, they have all the perks of a candle but less of the danger! All you do is plug in your warmer, and set a few of your wax cubes in the top of the warmer. Let the wax sit as the warmer heats up and it will melt the wax leaving a wonderful smell! There is less danger because there is no flame or fire invoked. Once you are done warming your wax, you can turn it off and the wax hardens again. When you are ready to warm more wax, just turn it back on and the warmer melts the wax again!

They don’t sell the wax’s to melt in your warmers and if you ask me, Scentsy is my favorite! Here is a few of the wax’s that would smell great in these warmers plus they are buy 5 get 1 free!

I bought some wax about 4 years ago from Scentsy and I just used the last of it in my pumpkin warmer. I have used other wax’s and they don’t seem to last as long or smell as strong as the Scentsy wax’s! My friend Carolyn sells Scentsy so if you need some wax, shop here.

TriFly 3 in 1 Toddler Scooter Review


scooter 

My little girl likes to keep up with her older brothers but sometimes it is hard for her to keep up with them since she is just learning to ride bikes or scooters. We have a few scooters but they are not her size so the TriFly Toddler scooter is the perfect thing for her!

Screen Shot 2014-09-20 at 12.56.02 PM 

The TriFly scooter is unique because it comes with different attachments to grow with your kids during the different changes in your little one’s life. It comes with the orignal Kickboard Scooter, Ride on seat with two height sizes, and a Basket. 

My girl is old enough to just use the tallest attachment but I loved that it comes with so many different ways to ride it so her younger friends can ride it when they comes over.

IMG_5354 

This is the #1 scooter for preschool and toddler age kids so if you have a child in that age range, this is a great first scooter for them! It’s small enough for them to maneuver but they can still keep up with the bigger kids because it rides so well. The High Quality LED light up wheels enable a smooth ride even on bumpy city sidewalks. My kids love turning off the lights in the kitchen and riding around while watching the wheels like up!

Christmas is coming so go here to shop! 

My older kids even like riding on this scooter! They have scooters of their own but they love how easy this is to ride around. I am so glad we found this scooter because this had made my little girl feel like she is grown up and can ride a scooter just like her older brothers!

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.

M&M fondant cookies to save the day, Captain America style!

 This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.captain america cookies 

Captain America is about to be released so I had a hankering for some good ole fashion chocolate chip cookies to celebrate. But regular cookies weren’t good enough for such a special event, so I had to kick them up a notch! Instead of chocolate chips I used mini M&M’s that I bought at Walmart.

And you will never believe how super easy this fondant is to make and how delicious it is to eat.

1. First melt the marshmallows and water in a bowl in the microwave. Heat for 1 minute then see how much is melted. Heat in 15 second increments until melted.

IMG_5188 

2. This is what it will look like when you melt the marshmallows. 

There isn’t a magic measurement for the powdered sugar, you just need to add enough to where you can knead the marshmallows without it being to sticky.

IMG_5189 

3. The marshmallows will start to look like bread dough. Add enough to where you can knead it by hand.

IMG_5191 

4. Knead it a little then roll out with a rolling pin so you can start cutting out the shapes.

IMG_5192 

5. I cut out my white shapes first then put them on a wax paper. Don’t leave them on there long because they can be hard to get off. 

 IMG_5193 

6. Separate the leftover fondant into 2 balls. Add red food coloring to 1 and blue to the other. Knead the dough until the color is spread throughout. 

 When you are folding in the coloring and kneading the fondant, it will become sticky so keep adding powered sugar. It’s ok if your colored fondant is a lighter color, I have a trick for that next!

IMG_5194 

7. Once you cut out all the shapes, you will notice they can have a little white film from the powdered sugar. All you have to do is get a tad bit of water on your hand. Dab a little water on the tops of the shapes and the white powder will disappear. Don’t add to much or they will get sticky. Let the pieces dry then you can assemble your cookies.

 I used biscuit cutters for the different sizes them a small star cookie cutter for the star in the middle.

Bake your cookies, then once they are cool, assemble your cookies. I put a red circle down first, then a white, then blue then a white star. Your kids will go wild over these super hero cookies. 

Plus here is a coupon you can use on a bag of M&M’s. 

Go here for the coupon!

Monk Fruit in the Raw

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Monk Fruit In The Raw. I received product samples to facilitate my post as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

monkfruit

I am still on my weight-loss journey but that doesn’t mean my sweet tooth has been curbed. I am a sugar addict and cannot live without my sweet tea. However, I had to give it up lately because the way I make sweet tea, it’s calorie central and ends up sabotaging my weight loss.

I am in LOVE with Monk Fruit In The Raw because it’s an all natural sugar alternative that is even sweeter than sugar so I can use less of it, still get the sweet taste of my favorite sweet tea with NO calories!

I love trying sugar alternatives but they must be all natural or I won’t be a fan. 

For this recipe, I used my tried and true sweet tea recipe!

Monk Fruit in the Raw
Author: 
 
Ingredients
  • 7-8 tea bags
  • water
  • 1 cup of monk fruit in the raw
Instructions
  1. Boil a sauce pan of water, then turn it off. Add the tea bag and let steep for 10 minutes.
  2. Put in a pitcher and add enough water to make it to the top.
  3. Stir in 1 cup Monk Fruit in the raw. (with normal sugar I use 2 cups so I get to use 1 less cup of sweetener with the monk fruit).

 Go here for more information. 

September is Childhood obesity month and in observation of this awareness initiation, I am going to craft more of my recipes with healthy sugar alternatives like Monk Fruit In The Raw. My kids have a sweet tooth like I do and I don’t think they will notice a difference if I swap out recipes that call for regular sugar with Monk Fruit In The Raw. 

I love that Monk Fruit In The Raw is a wholesome, zero calorie sweetener made from real fruit! I am a fan of products that have real ingradients in them and I feel good using these foods with my kids.

You can buy this product in a bag or in a box that holds individual packets. You can use the bagged Monk Fruit In the Raw and measure it just like you would sugar but I found I could use less and still get the sweet taste that I am used to. I thought there was a little different taste then regular sugar but it was a welcome difference not a bad one in the least. I know some sugar alternatives can leave a after taste but I loved the taste of Monk Fruit In The Raw.

If you want more recipes or ideas for ways to use Monk Fruit In The Raw, go here. If your looking for an all natural sugar alternative, this is definitely a product you should buy.

Candy Club Review

candy club 

I can admit it, I am addicted to candy! My husband always finds me sneaking candy at the house so he knows about my addiction too. I got an email if I wanted to review the Candy club and they must have known me personally because I might or might not have let out a little squeal!

Seriously, if my husband is wondering what I want for Christmas, this would be it! 

I have to be honest, did I want to share this with my kids??? Absolutely not!! I am such a greedy candy hoarder but my motherly instincts kicked in and I decided to share…or they just found the stash and I couldn’t tell them no ;-) They loved it as much as I did!

This month in the box was jelly beans, a type of gummy bears, cotton candy salt water taffy, peach buds and sour belts which are my all time favorite! Now here is where it get’s nerdy. I like my candy and I like it fresh! I hate stale or stiff candy and all the candy I received was as fresh as ever! This is the exact box I received below. They came in these cute little round bins and were easy to open and re-closeable. 

Screen Shot 2014-09-11 at 2.54.22 PM 

So here is how it works:

Screen Shot 2014-09-11 at 2.52.22 PM

Get moving today with a Fit Made Fun Day! #FitMadeFun

fit made fun 

Today is Fit Made Fun day! Are you ready to get outside and get moving??! Today LeapFrog is introducing the brand new Leap Band and trust me, you should be excited about it! The Leap Band is the new wearable activity tracker from LeapFrog. This special celebration encourages kids and their families to jump into motion and experience the fun of an active and healthy lifestyle. 

Screen Shot 2014-09-06 at 8.31.04 AM 

The Leap Band was really easy to set up and my kids haven’t quit playing with it since we took them out of the box!

We had a Leap Frog band Fit Made Fun party complete with the brand new Leap Bands and Clif Z bars for snacks! When kids are coming over to my house. I make sure I have nutritional snacks on hand that they can run by and grab on the go. I don’t know about your kids but my kids never have a depletion of energy and are always on the go so I must have yummy foods for them to pick up and grab. I had the Cliff Z bars, popcorn, carrot sticks, and boxes of raises for the kids to eat while they were having a fun fit time.

For one of the activities for the party, we decided on a scavenger hunt. I wanted to make it to where they had to run a little to get out some energy but also educational!

IMG_5288 

I made 2 hunts, #1 for the older kids and #2 for the younger ones so everyone would enjoy it at their level.

IMG_5276 

To start their hunt, I strapped a Leap Band on my little one and let it track their activity while doing the hunt. The leap band reminds me of a fit bit but for kids! Not only does it track their activity but it also has prompts to get them moving and play some really fun games.

IMG_5278 

And sometimes you just have to climb a tree!  #Fitmadefun 

What are you doing today to making being fit fun?

As a participant in the Walmart to Go First program, I’ve received a personal invite and payment for my time and efforts in creating this post.

This last week I hosted a Walmart to Go party at my house. There are 2 things that can make a party you host stressful and that’s the cooking and cleaning and that is of course while chasing all my kids around the house. For this party I ordered all my items ahead of time so that part made this party so much easier to host!

photo 

Here is my little helpers, helping me bring in my Walmart to go bags. The drivers always offer to bring them all the way inside but I mostly let me little ones help me out. That’s one thing that I love about this service is how hospital able they are! 

I love Walmart to go because I didn’t have to do a single shopping trip to plan for the event! I just got online and ordered the items I needed ahead of time and they were all delivered the day of the party!

We decide to go with a 30 minute meal, so it was a 3 course meal that we all prepared together.  

Walmart has some great 30 minutes recipes on this website you should check out here!

We made 3 dishes with the first being Rockin Guac. It took maybe 5 minutes to put together!

We were getting ready here to make our Mexican Pizza together.
 
And last but not least was our Pepsi Floats!
  • photo 4 
I had such a good time with some of my new blogger friends and it was literally the least stressful dinner party since I didn’t have to make 1 trip to the market.

To learn more about Walmart To Go, just sign up and see what it’s all about! 

What is Walmart to go? It’s a pickup/delivery service from Walmart. Let me just tell you….it’s LIFE changing! You just go online, order the items you want and either have them delivered to your house or pick them up at Walmart your closest Walmart store. It takes the shopping out of shopping! I am in love with this service and instead of dragging all my kids to the store to shop, I can have all the items I love delivered right to my door.
