Kisseo was nice enough to offer me a premium membership to Kisseo, and I have really enjoyed sending cards to friends and family.

MommyParties sponsored by Oral-B Stages

Join Us for a Movie Party Sponsored by Oral-B Stages!

As part of MommyParties, we had a showing of the Winnie the Pooh Movie, along with games and snacks from Oral-B Stages.

The kids had so much fun, we had flash cards asking them questions and trivias regarding oral care, they got to watch a movie, eat snacks, and go home with goodies!

The Kids love that Stages toothpastes have their favorite Disney characters on them to make brushing teeth fun, and us mommies can feel confident that it provides effective cavity prevention.

We were given Oral B Stage 1 and 2 toothbrushes.  They are designed for their age, and have cute characters and finger grip on them to make things easy for the kids.

Chex Mix My Get Together

Lots of fun and lots of yum!

I got the opportunity to host a Chex Party Mix-Change as a member of MygetTogether, and we had a blast.  We got to make tons of Chex Mix, lots of different recipes, and all so easy to make!

I was surprised that you could make all the different Chex Mix in the microwave.  And it all tasted fresh. 

Instead of each making a batch at home, and coming to the party to exchange it, we decided to bring all the ingredients in one place, and make our own batch in the same house, and then exchange batches.

We had a blast, we also involved the kids in the process, and the result was very yummy!

At the end of the day, everyone went home with:
  • Original Chex Mix.
  • Chex PB & Chocolate Blast.
  • Chex Caramel-Chocolate Drizzles.
  • Hot Buttered Yum Chex Mix.

Rock N Learn Logo

Once again, I only have praise for Rock 'N Learn

This time we got to try "Getting Ready for Kindergarten".  I thought it would be appropriate since I have one in kindergarten and one going to kindergarten next year.

Getting Ready for Kindergarten Cover
Rock 'N Learn "Getting Ready for Kindergarten" teaches essential skills through fun songs, animated characters, and real children. The video starts with tying shoes, which is skill in really need to learn in our home.  They also teach colors, counting, following directions, holding a pencil, printing letters and numbers, listening, number recognition and printing numbers through ten, getting dressed, left/right directions, and believe it or not there is more.

My kids loved this video!  I felt that it really tough them needed skills, and my boys were really able to learn through the video.

I have reviewed several Rock 'N Learn DVDs, and I will definitely recommend them.  They are fun to watch and truly educational, and beneficial for kids.

Check out all their products HERE.

Burt's Bees Natural Skin Solutions for Sensitive Skin Campaign

Sensitive Skin
Hurray! I was picked for the Burt's Bees Natural Skin Solutions for Sensitive Skin campaign through Bzz Agent.

I got to try their Sensitive Facial Cleanser and their Sensitive Daily Moisturizing Cream.  I loved them both!
I love that Burt's Bees products are all natural.  They made this new line of sensitive products to cleanse and moisturize sensitive skin without causing redness or irritation.
They have Softening Cotton Extract  in them to helps skin replenish its outer layer, shielding it from potential irritants such as harsh soaps or cleansers. 

The cleanser and the moisturizer were very gentle on my skin, and just as efficient if not better than regular cleansers or moisturizers.

Halloween Pizza Mummies

Every year, I see the cutest recipes around Halloween. I always plan to make a lot of them for my mom's Halloween party, but of course, making them all doesn't happen because I never have enough time.
This year, I decided I would make Halloween food throughout October, that way we get to enjoy all the fun Halloween recipes.

Here is number 1:  Pizza Mummies

They were fun to make, a little time consuming but very easy.

Here's the pre-cooked version

And the final version

The kids loved them!  The only thing I would change for my kids, I would use something other than olives for the eyes, since they peeled them off as soon as the plate was in from of them.

Get the full recipe details here.

Natural House Review and Giveaway‏

"For those parents whose kids have ever dunked their toys or pacifier in the toilet or licked food off of the floors…For those who have had to roto-root your pipes or have a septic build up and waste invade your home…For those of us who cringe when we have to open the trash can indoors and out…And for all of us out there that want something powerful that works AND want the piece of mind that what you are buying is non-toxic and safe, Natural House is for you".

Any of that sounds familiar?  I can relate to pretty much all of it. 
Natural House probiotic cleaning products are a new revolutionary way of cleaning the most dirty areas of your home. They use non-toxic, probiotic cleaning agents, which makes them safe and gentle for all of the members of your home.  I have 4 little ones walking and crawling around, and I always worry that they might get in contact with products that are not safe for them.  Cleaning House solves that problem.

They use an odor eating ecosystem to naturally drive out and digest odors at their source.  With six people in our home, you know I like this aspect of Natural House products!

For all of us trying the live a "greener" life, Natural House cleaning products use plant-based ingredients, they are eco-friendly, non-toxic and biodegradable.  They are really natural household cleaning products.

One last amazing thing about their cleaners, they contain good probiotics which continue to scour, clean, consume odors, grime, grease, and germs, and they continue to do so until your next weekly treatment! How many products can you think of that do that?

I was lucky enough to get to try their three products, Trashy, Sinky and Flushy.  I love the names!  And I am very excited to review them, as I really enjoyed using them in our home.

Here's a picture to explain the way their products work:

The first one I tried was Sinky.
It breaks down grease and food scraps to help prevent clogs and slow drains. It's very easy to use, and actually kind of fun to watch. You just put in your drain, run hot water for a few seconds, turn on your disposal for a few seconds, and watch it work. It will start to foam on its own!
I love being able to see the product work, and it really seemed to help with odors too.

Next, I tried Trashy.  Can you guess what this one is used for.  You got it, that dreaded trash can.  You can use it in your indoor or outdoor trash cans to dissolve odors, grease and food scraps.  Again, very easy to use, just spray it in your trash can, or if you have one of those "stinky" diaper pails, spray it in that, and let air dry.  You can also wipe it down if you want.
For some reason, I feel so much better looking at my trash can now.  It definitely helped with smell, and the inside seems cleaner too!
Last, I tried Flushy.  Any idea what this one is for?  You guys are too smart!
Flushy is a toilet bowl cleaner and drain and septic treatment. It cuts through stains, hard water and calcium deposits in the bowl. If you have a septic tank, it continues to consume toilet paper and waste build up in the p-trap, drain and pipes, and maintains the health of your septic system.
The kids had fun watching this one work!  Just tosh the bag in your toilet bowl, and watch it foam. 

Overall, I really enjoyed using their products.  This is actually very strange for me to say, because I wouldn't imagine myself saying I enjoyed cleaning, but I did.  All the Natural House products, were really easy to use, they work great, and they shorten cleaning time.  I liked being able to see the produtcs work.
Buy Them:  Their products are very affordable, $4.99 each.  You can buy them Here. Or on Amazon Here.

Win Them: One Lucky Kids and Deals Reader will win a 30 day supply of all the products I reviewed!

Rock 'N Learn Sight Words Review & Giveaway

Rock N Learn Logo

Rock 'N Learn is at it again, and the kids love it! 
This time we got to try their latest release Sight Words.  I was excited to try another DVD from them, as the kids enjoy their phonics DVDs so much. 

Here is a little bit from Rock 'N Learn about Sight Words:

"Sight Words, a new DVD program from Rock ‘N Learn, helps kids learn to read. Using fun music and exciting characters, kids learn to read over 60 words. These are the most common words used in the English language and are words kids need to know automatically. This program is perfect for parents with very young kids who appear advanced and eager to learn, as well as older students with remedial needs. It’s effective at helping kids learn to read at all ages. A bonus section helps kids practice their spelling skills and focus on the shapes of words. The program engages kids to participate along with the fun characters. Approximately 50 minutes in length, it’s most effective when kids watch again and again. Before too long, they are reading the sight words with ease."

I love seeing the kids get so excited watching this DVD.  They love the music and characters, and sing along with them.  I have a 5 years old, a 4 years old, and a 2 years old, and they equally enjoy Sight Words.  I hear them repeat words, and sounds.  I like that the DVD has illustrations, and images that make the kids want to keep watching.  It seems to really help my oldest son who is learning to read right now.

The picture shows the kids sitting nicely to watch it, but most of the time they dance along with the DVD.

I would definitely recommend Rock 'N Learn Sight Words, it gets kids familiar with common words and sounds, as well as helping reading and recognizing the words.  Who doesn't want to learn while having fun!

BUY IT: Visit, and coupon code JQ7711 to get 25% off your purchase.

WIN IT: Rock 'N Learn has generously offered one of Kids and Deals readers to win their own CD or DVD of their choice!
