Read Powered by Mom’s review of the Zike Z150 HERE

MY kids road on one of these at my sisters house and they loved them! They never wanted to get off of it!
About the Zike a new way to ride!
It’s a total body fun experience! Improves posture, easier on the joints and so much more! Zike is radically redefining the industry to offer a new and better way for kids and adults to exercise and enjoy the great outdoors!
Zike riding also burns calories at a rate equivalent to step aerobics and rowing (burns in excess of 600 calories per hour). The major muscles involved in powering the Zike are the calf muscle, thigh muscles and gluteus muscles while some trunk extension muscles and ankle muscles are also involved. The smooth, flat pedal motion of the Zike scooter is a lower-impact exercise that produces less pressure on joints and bones.
It’s a fun way to get moving, have fun and get some exercise that will benefit your body better thank just cycling or boarding.
One lucky person will win the Zike Z150 good for ages 8 & up and up to 160lbs.

Finish makes my house sparkle! Plus secret storage solutions!!

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

As a busy momma of 4, sometimes, most times, ok all the time I don’t have time to pre-wash my dishes. I rarely have extra time to do the dishes anyway so when I do spare a second to  do a round of dishes, I need products that can clean my products when I don’t have the time.

Thankfully Wal-Mart has lots of Finish products on roll back until October!

There is also a $1/1 coupon you can score to make the final price for some Finish products I found around $1.97 depending on the price these are at your store.

For the $1/1 coupon, go here! You can find the Finish dish cleaning items in the dish detergent aisle at your local Wal-Mart. My store had a ton of products! 

I also was on the hunt for a cute way to store my finish products underneath my sink. Right now I am using a fabric box type situation that is not working out so well. I found these super cute crates at Wal-Mart that will fit nicely under my sink!

So when I got home, I had to get to organizing. Apparently the space under the sink had become a catch-all. It was full of junk I needed to throw away but within all the mess I found all of these Finish products much to my delight! SCORE!

Here is my space now underneath my sink! So much more organized and if anyone is keeping count, way more cute!!

before finish 

Now for the ultimate test…times to do a round of my dishes! Dishes pile up in seconds in our house so it was not hard to find a load. In fact this was just from breakfast!!! This is what 4 kids will do you folks…this serves as a courtesy warning. 

 I scraped all the large food off the dishes and threw them in the dishwasher. I probably would leave the large food on the plates if I knew my dishwasher could handle it…im just being honest. I love the Finish line of dishwasher cleaner products because the Quantum Power & Free variety has less chemicals and I feel safe using them on the utensils my kids eat off of. 

The Finish products did an amazing job of cleaning my dishes!

But WAIT, there is more! I also needed a storage solution for storing some of the Finish tablets near my sink so I can easily grab them when I need them. Check out what I came up with!

Mason jar  

It’s safe to say I am obsessed with Mason Jars. I have tons in my house I got a while back for 50% off so I have been finding creative ways to use them. One of my favorite ways I have found to repourse them is use them as hidden dish detergent holders!

This craft is SO easy! All you have to do it paint your mason jar any color you like. Let it dry, then take some sand paper and genty scrub off some of the raised parts to make it look weathered. Get your Finish tabs or gel pacs and throw them in the jar and voilia, you have a super cute decoration that doubles as a Finish dish detergent holder!

Success Rice is helping me loose these last 15 baby weight pounds!

This is a sponsored post by Success Rice but all opinions are my own. 

 Screen Shot 2014-08-25 at 7.48.01 PM 

If you have been following my blog lately, you know I have been trying to loose the baby weight from baby #4. I have lost a total of 75 pounds so far from the day I gave birth so it’s been a success so far, but I still have about 15 to go. I wanted to share with you one of my favorite meals I eat while loosing weight and I always have a box of   Success® boil in a bag rice on hand.

success rice

If your not trying to loose weight, this is still a great recipe to try but you can just put your favorite dressing on top or this dressing recipe here that is super yummy! 

For lunch and dinner I like to have a vegetable, starch and protein and sometimes I throw in a fruit if I am really hungry. 

This meal is so easy and quick to throw together and it actually makes 2 servings so what you don’t eat for 1 meal, you can pack up and eat the next day. 

All it is, is 1 pouch  of Success® Jasmine rice which only takes 8-10 minutes to cook. While you are boiling that, throw some chicken, corn, and honeydew or watermelon in a bowl and some ready make pico de gallo. I like to use a rotierrie chicken since it’s already cooked. 

IMG_5118

For my “dressing” I just sprinkle some salt and pepper, italian seasoning and a little lime juice all over all the ingredients after I throw the rice in. I love using Success rice when I am trying to loose weight because normally I go for bread when I am hungry but that never works out well on the scale but with Successs® boil in a bag rice, it makes me full without all the calories. 

Success® Jasmine Rice is the only boil-in-bag Jasmine rice available. It can be fully cooked rice in 10 minutes and is pre-portioned, BPA-free boil-in-bag means no mess, no measuring involved which is music to this busy mom’s ears! They also have a Basmati Rice flavor which  is the only boil-in-bag Basmati rice available so you should try out both flavors. 

If you want more ideas on how to use Success® rice, go here for more rice recipes.

I was able to find both kinds of aromatic rice at Walmart. I tried looking at my local supermarket but they didn’t carry it but Walmart did. I was even able to look up the jasmine rice online at Walmart’s website and I could tell which store around me carried it.

Lay n Go review


lay n go  

When I received this lay-n-go lite in the mail, I knew who just to give it to! My amazing nephews! They are lego lovers and my sister told me about the Lay n go products a while back because she already had some in her house! I don’t even buy legos for my kids because they seem to loose all the pieces and it’s just to much of a mess. But with the lay n go system you can set all the legos on this round piece of fabric, they pull the side up to conveniently store your legos or any other toys for that matter!

IMG_4375 

This one below is the large lay-n-go my sister already had at her house so you know she loves these products! Can you believe how many legos this can hold??!

IMG_4371 IMG_4372 

IMG_4374  

The lay n go features 3 sizes:

*. The LITE (18″) is reversible and perfect for life on the go
*. The LARGE (5′) features inside pockets & shoulder strap
*. The LIFESTYLE (44″) features inside pockets and back pack styling

My sister said the lay-n-go lite is grey for legos but it is also great for storing toys for her little one. So when she is packing up for church, she can throw some of Rex’s toys into the lay and go! IT’s the perfect size for some of his little toys. 

The lay n go products are washable and wipeable so if they get dirty, it is no problem! 

Go here to shop!
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.
