Bella Materna Nursing Bra Review & Giveaway

Have you been searching high and low for a nursing bra that isn’t only easy and convenient but supportive too? Well I have one for you its the Bella Materna Basic T-shirt Nursing Bra with underwire. 

Bella Materna

If you are like me I love under-wire bra’s. I was a big girl for a long time so I don’t have the perkiest breast out there and the breast feeding isn’t helping much. This bra is amazing its super comfortable it gives you just the “lift” you need to feel sexy again. It is made just for nursing moms so no worries about plugged ducts or mastitis like most people say under-wires do. I love that this bra comes with a set of  Infinity Rings. They are attached between the cups so you can use them to convert your bra into a regular non-nursing bra when you’re done breastfeeding. I love this feature. I also love how easy it is to unhook to breast feed a wiggling baby.

Woolzies Dryer Balls Review


20130829-143938.jpg

Woolzies Dryer Balls are a great addition to my laundry routine. I do not like using any kind of fabric softer with my towels and I hated the static cling. Woolzies took care of that for me.  No more popping as I pull the towels out.

I loved using them with my sheets. They helped keep them separated and everything came out dry at the same time.

Woolzies says that it cuts down on drying time but I have to admit I’m a set it and forget it kind of gal so I never timed it.

They do bounce around in the dryer but the are not as loud as you may think.
They last 1000 loads and I’m not close to that limit yet but I will be buying more when I reach it.

 

Product Description

Woolzies are 100% pure new zealand wool dryer balls that do everything that conventional fabric softeners do plus they reduce drying time by 25%. They are money back guaranteed to last for at least 1,000 loads!
Woolzies have no chemicals at all and are also hypoallergenic so are safe even for people with wool sensitivities.
I can attest to them being hypoallergenic.  We had no issues with allergies at all and believe me if there was something in them we would know.

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.

Purex Fabric Softner Sheets Review

20130823-170010.jpg

I love being a part of the Purex Insider Crew. It allows me to get great products to review for you. I was sent Purex Fabric Softner Sheets for free in order to do this review.

I chose Lavender because I’ve been wanting to try it but was worried about the scent and how Mini would respond to it. I’m happy to say it went well.

I’ve always used Purex Laundry Detergent. It cost less and does a great job and Mini is not allergic to it. It’s the one brand I know I can count on.

Prior to this review I had not tried the Fabric Softner. I really didn’t want to spend money on something I was not able to use. I’ve always bought the more expensive brand just because you don’t fix what isn’t broken. I’ve also only purchase liquid.

Purex Fabric Softner sheets had my whole house smelling great. My clothes were soft and even my sheets where static free, even the expensive brand couldn’t tackle my static cling problem.

What I really love about the Softner Sheets is that I’m able to use them in other areas of the house. I can add them to the closets, drawers, I even tuck them inside our pillow covers. The lavender scent is calming and not overpowering.

I really wished I had given these a try long before now.

Do you use Fabric Softner Sheets? What other ways do you use?

Apple Pie iPad Case Review


20130823-085934.jpg

We were sent two Apple Pie i-Pad cases for free to review here on Two Girls and Some Coupons.

Mini and I had a great time decorating our cases. Since she uses the i-Pad the most I decorated mine to suit her.

They did a great job of protecting the i-Pad and she loved that it made it easy for her to watch movies. The case we had did not do that. It was more of an Outter Box design.

Mini loved carry around her Ode to Damon from the Vampire Diaries. She loooooves him.

The cases are made from a heavy cardboard like material and worked really well for about a month. Both ended up bending so they wouldn’t stand up but still did a great job of protecting the i-Pad but for the price it was well worth it.  At a sale price of $16.99 for a 3-pack (less than $5.67 each), it’s a bargain.

About the cases.

Here is what was demanded when the makers set out to build a new kind of kids iPad case:
  • Durable – kids iPad case must protect the front, back and corners from small drops and scratches.
  • Functional – kids iPad case needs to stand for movies, close easily and type at an angle.
  • Aesthetically pleasing and flexible, kids iPad case with solid design, and able to be customized.
  • The right material – Kids had to love working with the material – and it had to be something where parents wouldn’t freak out if kids’ post-yogurt fingers got all over it
  • Freakishly inexpensive
  • 100% recyclable
  • Made in the USA

As you can see this American Brand of Cases is not only great they are affordable!!

Green Earth Pan By Ozeri Review


Ozeri Review

 

I’ve been looking at the green cookware but just really didn’t believe it would work so I never bought any.  I was excited to find out I would be reviewing 10″ Green Earth Frying Pan, with Textured Ceramic Non-Stick Coating from Germany (100% PTFE and PFOA Free).  I was also nervous that I was going to have to give a negative review.

My pan arrived and the very next morning I put it to work.  I thought the best way to test it was cooking eggs.  As you can tell from the picture they did not stick at all.  The pan is big enough that I was able to fit 6 pieces of sausage in it.   I’ve used it several times since I’ve gotten it as it is now my go to pan for everything.  You can believe I will be adding more green cookware to my house.

I have larger pans that I use and they just do not cook evenly.  I had no problems with Ozeri.  My food was all done at the same time and cooked evenly.  It was also super easy to clean up.

Here’s a little bit about the company:

Utilizing GREBLON — a natural ceramic coating from Germany, the Green Earth Pan by Ozeri is one of the world’s first frying pans to achieve non-stick perfection while remaining absolutely free of PTFE, PFOA and other harmful chemicals. Conventional non-stick cookware is achieved through a coating of PTFE (PolyTetraFluoroEthylene), a synthetic substance that has waxy properties. At very high temperatures, PTFE begins to decompose and release fumes which are documented to be lethal to birds and small pets, and which can be harmful to humans. In addition, traditional pans incorporating PTFE are manufactured with the aid of PFOA (PerFluoroOctanoic Acid), which the EPA has classified as a ‘persistent pollutant of the environment’. With the Green Earth Pan’s GREBLON ceramic from Germany, even under high temperatures, no harmful toxic fumes are ever released into the environment. This is because the Green Earth Pan utilizes a 100% ceramic coating derived from nature – not from a laboratory. The Green Earth Pan’s ceramic coating is completely free of PTFE and PFOA. The Green Earth Pan’s natural ceramic coating is also far more durable and scratch-resistant than other non-stick surfaces. With better non-stick properties, the Green Earth Pan allows you to cook with as little as half the amount of oil normally used, and it makes cleaning a breeze. The Green Earth Pan by Ozeri is made of the highest quality anodized aluminum that allows for even cooking and fantastic browning without the risk of hot spots. It boasts a magnetized bottom for rapid heat transfer on induction stoves, and a heat resistant silicone coated handle. This version of the Green Earth Pan features a textured ceramic cooking surface. The elevations of the textured cooking surface create air pockets which distribute heat underneath food to enhance cooking performance. Your satisfaction is guaranteed. GREBLON ceramic made by Weilburger GmbH, Germany. Final assembly in China.

 

If you are thinking of buying green cookware I highly recommend the Green Earth Pan by Ozeri.

How cute is this?  Once I seen this I knew I had to request to review it.  As you all know I don’t have a little man but Tonya’s little man will be here any day now.  We will be adding pictures of Little Zeke with his Mustachifier as soon as we are able.  He will be using the “The Gentleman”.

The Mustachifier is a mustache pacifier  and is made from flexible teether material, with a natural orthodontic shape.  It has a silicone teat and is BPA free.  They even include a snap-on hygienic cap to keep it clean.   They have several options to choose and would make a great gift.  I can’t wait to see Zeke with his.  We will update the post and share it with you again once we have pictures of him.

Do you have a little man in your life?  What do you think of the Mustachifier?

Encourage Your Child's Love of Reading with Reading Kingdom

Reading Kingdom

I was given the opportunity to try Reading Kingdom for free and we are loving it.  I am always looking for ways to entertain Mini that are educational as will as fun.  Now that we have started Homeschooling I search for things that educates us year round.

Reading Kingdom is an award-winning online program that teaches children 4-10 to read and write to a 3rd grade level. The program is based on the work of Dr. Marion Blank from Columbia University, one of the world’s top experts on reading and language development. It uses her patented and research based “6-SIM” (Six Skill Integrated Method) technique that yields incredible results.

 

Once I set up the account Mini went through a series of skill tests to see where she was in her reading level.  The test are simple such as type these letters and once she typed them, the word was pronounced and a picture was shown.  I love that they use typing, listening and seeing as a form of learning.  Not only will Mini work on her reading skills but she is working on her typing skills too.  The fact that this learning comes in the form of games and animated makes it less work and Mini is more willing to do it.


Reading Kindom

We will continue using Reading Kingdom this year with the rest of our school work, anything that makes learning fun get a gold star in my book.

3 Ways to use 20 Mule Team Borax To Save Money

I’m a Purex Insider and was sent 20 Mule Borax to use for this review. All opinions are my own.

Laundry Booster

Laundry Booster

What I learned is 20 Mule Team Borax is a laundry booster that helps your laundry detergent do it’s job a little better.   Borax works to soften hard water which in turn leads to cleaner clothes. It keeps stains from being re-deposited back onto your clothes.

 I live in the country and my water is well.. I’m just not sure about my water.   When I add 20 Mule Team to my laundry my clothes just look cleaner.  I do not use Fabric Softer on my towels and I notice they are much softer.  Just add a 1/2 cup to your laundry and enjoy cleaner clothes.

Homemade Laundry Detergent

Check out this recipe to make your own laundry detergent.

1 cup Borax

1 cup A&H Washing Soda (make sure its washing soda)

1 bar of Johnson Baby Bar Soap– Grated

2 gallons of Water

 

All Purpose Cleaner

Mix 2 teaspoons of Borax in a spray bottle with 2 cups of hot water.  Shake it up and clean away.  I love this simple recipe.  I know exactly what I am cleaning with and that makes me a happy camper.

Energize Family Night With Bejeweled Frenzy

Disclosure: We were sent Bejeweled Frenzy to use in order to create this post. That does not change the fun that we had or our opinions.
Bejeweled Frenzy

 

 

Looking for a fun game for game night?  Bejeweled Frenzy is the way to go. They recommend ages 8 and up but I think it would be a great way to teach younger ones shapes.  Kids race to match gems and build the largest stack of cards.  You compete to collapse your stack, collect Boost Gems and score the most points to win.

The game comes with a link to redeem four rare gems that can be used in the Bejeweled Blitz online care.

We had a lot of fun playing the game.  Mini caught on quick and even beat me.  She loved collapsing her pile and collecting the Boost Gems.  Bejeweled Frenzy has been a great addition to our games and has helped ease the boredom on those too hot to play outside days.

Bring your Wood Back to Life With Scott's Liquid Gold

Liquid Gold Review

 

 

I was sent a can of Scott’s Liquid Gold Almond Scent to use for this review!  I’ve seen and heard of Scott’s Liquid Gold but had never tried it before this review.   For the new people to our page that might not know I live in the country.  When I say country I mean gravel roads and all!

To say we have dust is an understatement, especially in the summer.  The gravel road is dry and the farmers fly up and down it and my house and items in it end up looking like they have a foot of dust on them.  Once the Scott’s Liquid Gold arrived we went to work on trying it out.  It did a really good job of grabbing the dust and not just smearing it around.  It left a nice sheen and a nice almond scent.  I would love to say that it helped with the dust not accumulating as much but that just was not the case for me.  Anything short of having a maid to dust, I will have to dust every week and depending on the traffic several times a week.

Scott’s Liquid Gold is a great addition to my cleaning arsenal it brought my lifeless wood back to life and left a nice scent in each room that I dusted.  Once this can is used I will be buying more of it.

Manufactured in Denver, Colorado, Scott’s Liquid Gold is made with natural organic oils. It works as well today as it did 60 years ago!
