University of Alabama Locket, Like Origami Owl.

So, we all know about Origami Owl. I never bought into it, and I'm glad I didn't. Because, now I have a zillion different lockets like them, with a zillion different charms.

However---this one is my favorite. Even though there are a few issues, I still love this locket.

The first issue I have with this locket is that it barely opens. You'll see in my video. I lost one of my charms because I couldn't get it open wide enough.

Also, I'm not crazy about the way this hooks onto the chain, instead of sliding. I'd honestly rather it slide.

But, I love the charms. I LOVE Alabama football. I know I haven't gotten into that much on this blog, but I'm a huge fan. I was more of an in person fan before I had my son. Now, it takes EVERYTHING out of me to go. My husband doesn't get why I've ''changed'', but that's another blog for another day.

I wear this necklace, a lot, so I must really like it. I would absolutely still recommend it, I just hope/wish they make these changes to it.

Have you heard about Bandanna Bibs??

If not, please keep reading.

These little pieces of cloth are SO Adorable. Not only do they look cute, they are BIBS! Bibs, y'all. They catch all that nasty food that falls out of our babies mouths. You know, they're sitting there eating, not closing mouths, ''talking'', slinging stuff around. And, you've got food everywhere.

Those flat bibs are all fine and good they serve a purpose. But these are picture worthy. Moms,  y'all know what I mean. You've got your phone out, you're taking all so adorable pics of your babies, and you've got this frog bib on your kid. Frogs?? Really? I mean, I love them. I used to collect them, but they are not adorable.

These bandanna bibs ARE. Don't even think about it. Just try them.

They are very durable. I've washed them, and they held up just fine.

Paci Clips are a Mom's Best Friend

I don't know about you, but whoever thought to make those beautiful little strings with clips was a GENIUS. Because, instead of having fifty pacis everywhere, I only had two.

The Billy Goat Baby Bear clips are no exception. They are actually much better than most I've used. I'm including a video that will show how they clip, but there's an extra step that keeps them on much better.

The designs in these rock. I love houndstooth, and so for my son to be sporting a houndstooth paci is icing on my cake.

If you don't have paci "leashes" buy them. Now. You'll thank me later.

These are not only great designs but very well built. I will buy again.

You NEED this Sweeper. I have two.


Since my review in February (it's October) I have used the mess out of this thing. So much so that I thought I broke it. I contacted the seller, and they immediately sent a new one out, no questions asked. I realized when I was setting the new one up that there is a battery pack in these, and it had come loose from the other. So, now, I have two. And let me tell you, we use them MULTIPLE times weekly. Daily sometimes. My toddler loves them and uses them himself.

So, here is my original review.

I wasn't sure about this after reading some reviews, but I am very pleased. We have a dog that sheds like NO OTHER dog you could imagine. You rake your hand down her back and you get handfuls. So, you can imagine myb house is always covered up in dog hair. I have a robot vacuum I keep going, but I'm constantly having to dump it. It's not good for big jobs.

This is. I have a 2400 square foot house. I did over half of that footage in about 45 minutes and got ALL the dog hair. I even got in corners and up close to base boards with this!! I am thoroughly impressed. I don't like to clean dog hair. It's one of my most dreaded jobs. But, with this I can just zip through the house and be done.

I had a Swiffer Sweeper too, but it didn't EVER hold a charge. I couldn't make it last but maybe 15 minutes. The Monster was still going after 45.

I had to dump the collector several times, but that's to be expected. It's so easy to dump this too. One handed!

I would absolutely recommend this to anyone, especially if you have dogs and hardwood. I don't have carpet anymore, thank God, so I can't review it on that, but it works amazingly well on my hardwoods!!

Those Foot Mask Things? Yeah, they rock!!

***I am on my fifth pair of these. I actually went back twice and bought these full price after reviewing them***

I love foot masks. LOVE. THEM! Dr. Pedicure is no exception. Just make sure you follow the steps. I exfoliated my feet before I put them on this time, and that seemed to help. Also, wearing shoes/boots, etc, anything to make your feet ''hot'' will speed the process along. DO NOT PEEL your feet!! I promise, it is better if you don't. When they start peeling, it's going to be gross. You're going to hate it. Just keep smiling, Just keep smiling :) Seriously, keep with it. Don't peel!! If you can do them on a Friday, they *should* be starting to peel by the following Thursday/Friday if not before. I did mine on Thursday, and by Sunday mine were starting to peel. The only thing I had with these were really painful heat spots later. Like, I really thought I had a splinter in my foot at one point, it was so bad. Then, I had one other a few days later. So, be aware of this.

I would buy these again, though. I just wouldn't leave them on for 90 minutes, only 60. I think that had something to do with my heat spots later.

Pyle Keyboard Stand Review

The Good: Solid piece of equipment with redundancy built in and a

locking mechanism that looks fairly stout. My husband played

professionally for a few years and says he would definitely take this on

the road for smaller keyboards or pieces of equipment. It's all that

most amateurs will need for home keyboards, sturdy and looks to be able

to take a pounding. Survives not only the playing of someone who can

really move on a keyboard, but also a 2-year-old who likes to just bang

out some notes.

The Bad: The assembly directions border on useless. There is one picture

that is helpful; the rest of the directions, especially the

step-by-step, might as well not even be there. The narrative portion of

the directions was obviously translated from a different language, and

someone needs to take a second pass at it. The stand itself has some

color coding for parts, but it's not mentioned in the directions and you

still have to sort of guess at what you're doing. This could have been

assembled in 10 minutes with clear directions (or better yet, shipped

pre-assembled, which would have required only a slightly larger box);

instead, it took more than an hour with two people working on it.

Overall: Buy it for its function and overlook the directions. It's a

sturdy piece that should last you for years.

Kaiya Angel Dresses Review

I was fortunate enough to receive two of her products to review, and I'm so glad I did!! I, of course, do NOT have a little girl, but, a friend of mine has the sweetest little 3 year old, and she was absolutely glad to model.

This review is for the romper. The Dress will follow.

This gorgeous lace romper is such a great summer outfit for any girl!! The aqua color is beautiful. The lace detail is simply exquisite.

I hand washed this the first time, but I feel pretty sure you could wash on delicate and not dry. I don't dry things like this.

The elastic in this romper seems tho be very strong. Not the cheap kind that will break and/or shrivel. The lace on this dress is very high quality as well.

The best part of this outfit? Super easy on and easy off. A toddler could dress herself with this, it's so easy. Just step in, and pull up.

There is a big satin bow on this romper, too. You have to keep it tied, but my trick with this is tie it like you want then either sew it tied or pin it tied with a safety pin.

I would absolutely buy this romper again. I actually told a friend of mine to go buy it for her baby girl ASAP.


In the pic that has the face covered, that's my best friends daughter. She will be 3 in a month, and is in 4T. I ordered the XXXL.

This may be the prettiest dress I've seen since I was a little girl. The lace on this dress is simply breathtaking. It truly looks like a boutique dress. The elastic is not cheap, I tested this dress HARD. I pulled it over my son (I purchased this as a gift for my best friends little girl) and I also pulled it over a small chair to test elasticity strength. There was no stretching or pulling.

The stitching on this dress is done amazingly well, too. I really don't think there will be any loose thread issues, except for general wear.

I can't tell you how it fits until I get to her and she tries it on. But I am including measurement pics for you to go by. Maybe that will help until I can add our fit review.

I would absolutely recommend this dress. I would have a hard time not buying this even if I didn't have a friend with a girl.

**EDITED TO ADD SIZE** In the picture with the head blocked out, she is almost 3 and in 4T. I ordered an XL in this dress.

We Love Jerky!

And this jerky was no exception.

Good points: Nice texture. Easily chewable without being either too

tough, or too artificial in its texture. No surprise fat or unchewable

sinew present in the meat. Nice smoke on the meat. Product is chopped up

into small, kidney-shaped pieces that are easy to manage. Its best

feature was the lack of artificial sweetness present in too many beef

jerky products today.

Bad points: Ingredients listed include paprika, garlic, mushroom and

three kinds of pepper. None are particularly identifiable in the end

product. There is heat here, but trying to identify what pepper produced

it is difficult, if not impossible. The package says "Cajun Flavor,"

however, and traditional Cajun spices are absolutely not identifiable in

this sample. I mostly tasted plain salt.

Verdict: Better than most mass-produced, store-bought beef jerky, but

the overabundance of salt combined with the lack of other flavors makes

this product average.

Roller Bottles for Oils!

I'm big into Young Living. Like, addicted, sold down the river, gone. So, I needed some roller bottles for my precious oils. I've tried three so far. This set is the ONLY set that doesn't leak. Plus, they are cute colors. You can't lose.

The tops are very easy to remove. And, the lids don't tighten and make them leak like I've had others do.

Overall, I love them and I'll be buying more.
