Today I am bringing you a review and Giveaway for a wonderful product called The Smart Klean Laundry Ball. It does not contain any chemicals, detergents, Fragrances! This uses 4 types of Ceramic pellets that are designed to help the water effectively clean your dirty laundry. Now before you go and ask, Ill answer this for ya...This ball works great on cloth diaper laundry!! Already tried it out and tested it on Jack's AIO Diapers and pre-folds! One Smart Klean laundry ball can wash a years worth of laundry before you'll need to replace it with a new one on the basis of 18 pounds of laundry washed per day. Now I don't know about you, but even though I have a very large family, I don not wash 18 pounds a day. When I got this ball in the mail, I thought "there is no way this ball is going to wash my laundry as well as soaps!" Well......IT DID!! The only difference is that its not scented. Which is fine by me. This ball is wonderful on the environment and will not cause any negative affect on septic systems like soaps would. I still use drier sheets when I use this ball, cuz i feel the need to have my laundry smelling fresh and clean! This ball recommends that you use it in a load that's not too overloaded to promote thorough cleaning. I used this ball on my husbands greasy smelly work clothes and It worked beautifully! I cannot complain and I will say this....I AM HOOKED! Think about how much money you will save also by using this ball? I did the math for my household and Ive estimated my household to save over $900.00 a year on laundry detergent! Who doesn't want that? I also wanted to add that this ball also gets rid of germs, thats awesome especially for cloth diapers!! To find out more or to purchase your own ball(s) please visit their website below...

Today I am reviewing a wonderful MakeUp line called Classy Minerals. It's all natural mineral makeup with out scents and additives like a lot of other name brand, major makeup lines have. This makeup is all loose mineral makeup. I had the opportunity to review a few items. I got to try the "French green clay mask" below you'll find the picture of me trying it out. I love the clay mask, I used it and it did not burn like some other masks I have used. When I rinsed this off my face, my face felt smooth and clean and I felt like I had a new face. This stuff made my skin feel awesome!! I also got to try out there eye shadows, see picture below for which ones I used. This eyes shadow went on very smooth, and even after wearing it for an entire day, it still didn't clump up in my eyelid crease like every single other eye shadow I have used. The colors are bright and sparkly and the makeup made me feel so pretty, which is a feeling I just don't get about myself these days. I felt like a new mommy! I also got to try the "no more pores foundation primer" I rubbed this on my face before I applied any other makeup and it feels kinda like a liquid powder type substance. It made my skin feel smooth and helped fill in creases and dents I had from acne scarring and made way for a smooth foundation application. This stuff lasted all day long and did not require any reapplications. If you continue to use this makeup it will actually improve the health of your skin by reducing blemishes, redness, and acne. This makeup is hypoallergenic and in no way will it cause acne. I have used it for a week and a half now and have had absolutely no problems. I also got to try there blush, I loved it as well. The color was called "pink carnation". This also went on smooth and lasted all day long. Classy Minerals also sent me over another product called "eye liner sealant" you put this on over your eyeliner so it doesn't smudge or fade as the day goes on. I used it and even rubbed my eyes a couple times and my eye liner still didn't come off. Classy Minerals has awesome prices I've never seen any where else. This makeup is twenty times better then Cover girl or maybeline or any other major makeup line and the cost is cheaper. That's totally awesome, I am absolutely in love with this makeup company and plan on buying all my makeup through them from now on.

I got the wonderful opportunity to review a Nursing and Maternity Lingerie Company called Bella Materna, this company was founded by fellow moms who have nursed there babies just like we have. They have a huge line of nursing bras and "Tanga's" (panties). They have some very basic bras and some very sexy and stylish bras. I got to review the "Sexy T-Shirt bra" and matching tanga in Black. I got a small Tanga and a size 34 C Nursing bra. These bras can change back into a regular bra for when you are all done nursing. I am a mom to 4 boys and I don't feel all that sexy these days. Some days I am lucky if I get a chance to shave my legs and do my hair. Ha Ha! But seriously since receiving this bra and tanga set I feel prettier and sexier. It's hard to find a Nursing bra that's sexy, usually you find nursing bras with big and bulky thick straps and high rise cups that are so uncomfortable. Not Bella Materna. The bra I have has under wire that was approved by a lactation consultant and it's slightly padded. This bra brings my boobs to where they are supposed to be. It lifts and reshapes the way a woman would want her breasts to look and feel. The under wire does not cut into me what so ever and is incredibly comfy. My husband would like me to tell you all that he loves this bra and tanga set and he says it is the sexiest, prettiest nursing bra he's ever seen me wear. Ha ha!! I have a picture below of me wearing the bra, so please, don't mind the stretch marks, but I wanted to keep this realistic. I just had a baby In July so me showing you how well this Bella Materna set fits should tell you how great this lingerie is! The winner will receive any bra and Tanga of your choice, no price limit!! How freaking awesome is that?? Make sure to Thank Anne From Bellamaterna who is one of the founders for this awesome giveaway!! She has been so kind and very helpful with everything. Fast shipping and wonderful customer service!! I am so satisfied with Bella Materna. This is the place I shall go for all my lingerie needs! I highly recommend this Lingerie line to everyone, nursing, pregnant and non nursing and non pregnant woman. Did I say great prices? YES! I find the prices pretty easy on my pocket book! Also wanted to state that they have a wide variety of sizes, these will fit big woman and small woman and every one in between. Please fill out the rafflecopter form below for your chance to win your Bella Materna Set of YOUR CHOICE!!!!

I have had the wonderful opportunity to work with a woman who has her own etsy shop called Le Petite Birdie. She makes all kinds of wonderful and organic products all the way from Hawaii for Babies!! I rcently got to review and item called Bunny ear teethers. They are WONDERFUL!! I love how beautiful and rare they are, they are for sure a one of a kind baby toy. Its a wooden ring made from Organic Maple Wood coated in Beeswax and Olive oil for a smooth and soothing finish. All of this which by the way ir ORGANIC AND NATURAL! The fabric thats attacthed to the wooden ring is soft and luxurious and inside the fabric is a crinkly material that makes a crinkle noise that babies just LOVE! My son Jack has adopted this teething toy as his absolute most favorite toy. He no longer is interested in anything else besides this toy. Its a simple toy yet he loves the colors, the feel and the noise it makes. He enjoys chewing on the wooden ring and I have even dipped the knots of fabric into water and froze it to help soothe poor Jacks sore gums. He is teething like a maniac these days and not much can calm this baby down, but I will say that this teething toy DOES. I am in love with it and so is Jack. I have pictures below of Jack with it as well as a picture of the one my blog followers/readers have a chance to win. How cool is that? The one you all have a chance to win is unisex colored so it can be either for a girl or a boy. These make great gifts and with Christmas right around the corner what better way to buy someone a rare gift you cant get anywhere else. She has many other items as well in her shop on etsy that include....
- Burp Cloths
- Bunny Ear Teethers
- Hair Clips Baby Leg Warmers

I had the wonderful opportunity to review a wonderful company headed by a woman named Shalina. The company's name is Swircles. They not only have cloth diapers and accessories but they have a website and Facebook page also dedicated to new and used baby products all the way from crib's to blankets and clothing. For the links to these pages please see below. She sent me over a AIO cloth diaper, a cloth diaper cover and a contoured cloth diaper as well. She also sent me over 2 sets of cloth reusable breast pads. One set being made out of PUL material which helps prevents leaks. The same kind of material used in a wide variety of cloth diapers. I have worn these breast pads and I love both pairs. They are made out of a super soft material which is very nice for sore nipples. I wore a set for an entire day and did not have any leak issues like I have had with the disposable kind. I have used many different brands of disposable breast pads and I have such a strong letdown that I have leak issues. That was totally not the case with Swircles AWESOME breast pads. They fit nicely into my nursing bra cup and i did not have an issue with any of the pad hanging out through the top. Shalina makes all of the breast pads and cloth diapering products herself, which I must say I am quite impressed! How just one woman can make so many products on her own and sew them all with out any errors is beyond me. She is a wonderful sewer in my opinion! Ha Ha! Anyways, now onto the cloth diapers. Jack has worn all of what she sent me and Ill post what I was sent below in pictures. Jack didn't have any leak issues either with the cloth diapers. They fit him well. He is 15 pounds and he was sent over a size small and it all fit him with ease. I love how they had the Velcro for easy attachment and easy one handed removal. The contoured diaper is the part that soaks up the wetness and it soaked up a lot i must say. You have to make sure to use pins with it as you would with any cloth diaper whether it be a pre-fold or a contour. If you are new to cloth diapering and you have no idea what I am talking about, please feel free to ask me any questions and I will answer them all to the best of my knowledge. You can also ask any questions to Swircles website as well as on there Facebook page. The Facebook page is full of knowledgeable mommas.

WhatSEWever Designs is Ran my a wonderful and sweet woman named Andrea. She was kind enough to sew Jack a pair of shoes for us to test out and review. I will say that I am in love with these shoes and this woman's talent to sew. She not only makes shoes but she makes all kinds of baby related items. She makes T-Shirts, Dresses, Hats, Shoes, Headbands, and Tote Bags!! She has some very cute Turkey children's shirts for sale right not that would be perfect for the little ones to wear for Thanksgiving. These are items your WILL NOT find anywhere else. Which makes me happy as I know that I wont see another baby/toddler wearing the same things my boys are wearing. And rest assured as well if you buy products from her for loved ones Christmas presents you wont have to worry about someone else getting that person the same thing. When I got this package in the mail and I opened it up, Tucked inside the envelope was a wonderfully wrapped and packaged pair of adorable shoes. (Pictures of the shoes in the wrapping before I opened them is below as well as Pictures of Jack in the shoes.) I am amazed at how well made these shoes are, If I didn't know any better I would have thought that they were made in a factory. These shoes are very soft and comfortable with a generous amount of room for baby's feet to grow. The bottoms of the shoes have a no-Slip material similar to the feet on a pair of feetie pajamas. There is a strip of elastic on the inside to stretch and accommodate for any size feet. Jack has very fat and wide feet and he fits in these just perfect because of the wonderful elastic. Now she has created a promo code only for this blog's readers/followers. Ill have the code listed below as well as her Facebook fan page link and her etsy shop link too. Her items in her shop are very fairly priced, so when combined with the 10% off, you are really getting a great deal. So swing into her shop and see all that she has to offer.
