Piczzle - Puzzle With Your Own Photo Review & Giveaway

Are you as crazy about photo gifts as I am?
I think I own every kind of photo "something" you can make.  I love putting my pictures on everyday items, they are great memories, and great gifts. 

This time, I got to make a picture puzzle from Piczzle.

Piczzle photo puzzles are made of outstanding materials, top craftsmanship and the highest print quality. They are constructed of a premium grade cardboard that has been laminated with a glossy finish. Their cardboard puzzles are precision press cut so that all pieces will be perfectly match one another and they are printed using an advanced digital printing technique that results in sharp, multicolored prints.

I was very impressed with the puzzle I received.  It came in a very cute box, with a picture of the puzzle on the box.

The puzzle itself is placed inside a protective plastic bag.

The quality of the picture is excellent.  The cardboard piece are very strong.  We've made the puzzle serveral times, and they are still intact.  I was very pleased with this Piczzle puzzle.

 This is the final product!

I chose a 30 pieces puzzle because I wanted my kids to be able to make it, however, they have many other options available.  You can get different shapes, different sizes, and more pieces.

I think this would be a great Christmas present for a grandparent, or even a birthday present for a kid with their picture on it.

VTech InnoTab 3S: Premium Kid Connect Review & Giveaway

Last month, I did a review for the New VTech InnoTab 3S.  See the review here.

My kids love it. We recently started using their Kid Connect feature, and it has been a blast for them and for me. 

The InnoTab 3S comes with a one year subscription of Basic Kid Connect, which allows kids and parents to send text messages and stickers. Messages can be sent between InnoTabs, between profiles, and between an InnoTab and a Smartphone. 

In addition, they also offer a Premium Kid Connect app offers enhanced features that allow kids and parents to send not only text messages and stickers, but voice messages, photos and drawings to each other.

For the first two weeks after registration of the InnoTab 3S, a Deluxe Apps package with Premium Kid Connect is available for $14.99. The package also includes Movie Maker (a $7.99 value), a fun and exciting stop-motion animation app that lets kids become movie directors. Once the two week promotional period is over, Premium Kid Connect can be purchased separately for $14.99.

We've had a lot of fun sending messages back and forth.  I work nights, so it's been fun being able to send good night messages to the kids.
My 7 year old especially loves this feature, as he is able to read and write.

I also love that I can also monitor what they send to each other.

Check out this video for more info

Crest & Oral-B #SweetHalloween

Imagine a Halloween without sweet treats!  I would have four angry little ones at home. 
Crest & Oral-B asked a group of young trick-or-treaters to try some healthy alternatives to traditional Halloween candy and the results were...
This video is too funny!
I could not imagine taking Halloween away from the kids, even though it's not healthy. They enjoy it too much.  However, they always get way too much candy, and they never actually eat it all. 
I don't like waste, so I came up with a great tradition.  I let the kids keep their candy for two days, and they eat a piece or two out of their bags when I let them.  After the two days, we put all our candy together, and only keep a few of each kid's favorites.  Everything else goes to work with mom and dad.
Check out the Crest #SweetHalloween page and get some great coupons!

Calorease Weight Management Aid Review

As a Mom Ambassador with Mom's Meet, I was offered to try a new weight management pill called Calorease to review on my blog. 

I've been trying to lose weight for a while, but I've hard to the hardest time actually getting started.  I thought that trying Calorease might help me jump start my weight loss goals.

Calorease is a revolutionary diet supplement that decreases daily caloric consumption by up to 500 calories a day. Stimulant free and heart healthy—Calorease has no unwanted side effects when taken as recommended. The unique, active fiber in Calorease, FBCx, is a soluble fiber derived from grain and binds up to 9 times its weight in dietary fiber. A convenient blister pouch provides 1 serving (2 tablets) so Calorease is easy to bring along for your lifestyle on the go!

I started taking 2 Calorease pills three times a day with my meals.  I did not get any unpleasant side effects, and actually no side effects at all.  It took about a week and a half to two weeks for results to show, but I did start to lose some weight.  I did not make any changed to my diet, though I could definitely improve my diet a bit. 
I think Calorease is a great supplement to a well balanced diet and regular exercise.  It will definitely help in anyone's weight loss goals.

Of course it is not a miracle pill, but if taken as directed it can help you along with your plans.

If you check the Calorease website they give you sample meal plans to complement the Calorease supplements.

    • Calorease does not contain gluten, lactose, yeast, wheat, sugar, salt, egg, soy, dairy, artificial colors, sweeteners or preservatives. It is naturally sourced from grain and is suitable for vegans.

    • A convenient blister pouch provides 1 serving (2 tablets) so it’s easy to take on the go. A 90-tablet pack of Calorease retails for $29.99.

    • Get 50% off Calorease! Pay only $14.99 for a 90-tablet pack! Visit and enter code 4MOMS.

      Squishy Snak Paks at Buy Baby Review & Giveaway

      I recently discovered a great website to find great deals about baby items 

      Buy Baby Deals sent me one of their most popular items to review,

      I love the concept.  I've been a fan of food pouches for a while now. 
      Before they were popular in the U.S., I would have my mom bring them back from France because they are so convenient and kids love them.

      Squishy Snak Paks allows you to puree and take your own baby food/toddler food on the go!  There's no doubt about what you are feeding your child, you are the one that fills the pak. 

      What's Great:
      • Reusable, therefore good for the environment.
      • Great on the go.
      • Dishwasher safe.
      • Clear window in the back to see the content.
      What's not as Great:
      • Can get messy while filling.
      • Does not hold much, about 4 oz.
      This is the opening on the bottom from where you fill your Snak Pak
      We had extra bananas around the house, so I mashed them up and filled the Snak Pak for my daughter.  She has the hardest time staying in one spot to eat, so the Snak Pak is definitely less messy than her walking around the house with a banana.


      She liked eating it that way
      My daughter loves being able to open the Snak Pak herself.  She didn't finish it all the first time, so it was great being able to close it back up and saving it for later.
      BUY IT: You can buy Squishy Snak 2 Pak on sale right now at for $8.95! 
      Check their site as they often run a 24 hour feature on a 2 pack for 55% off! When we do they sell out within the hour.

      GIVEAWAY: Buy Baby Deals is generously offering one Kids and Deals reader to get their own Squishy Snak Pak!

      Firmoo Glasses Review & Giveaway

      Buy Cheap Prescription Eyeglasses Online, Reading Glasses, Fashion Eyewear on
      Have you ever bought prescription glasses online?  I wish I would have known I could do that when my son was wearing glasses.  There were so few choices in the store compared to online.

      When Firmoo contacted me about trying one of their glasses, I really wanted to do a review for them even though I don't have anyone in my house with prescription glasses.  I still felt a lot of you guys would benefit from learning about  So I got a pair of sunglasses from them.

      First, I want to mention a great program they offer.  If you order from them, you can get your first pair for Free!  Just enter code FIRMOOFREE.  Get more details Here.

      When I started looking at making a selection, I was concerned about whether they would look right on me or not.  Then I found their Virtual Try-On System.

      You can upload a picture of yourself or use one of their models, and "try" on any glasses you want.  I thought it worked great, and definitely helped me feel a lot more comfortable about which glasses to pick.

      I finally made a decision, and picked these:

       I really like how they fit
       They are very comfortable, light weight yet very sturdy

      You can get these sunglasses with a prescription too!  
      I would definitely recommend Firmoo.  They have lots of choices at great prices, and you can't beat free for your first pair!
      The only downside is that it takes a little while to receive your pair, so you can't be in a hurry to get them.
