Baby Blanket Music – Baby Elton John – CLOSED

I am a huge music fan.  My dad was in a band, my brother is in a band and I play guitar, we are pretty much a musical family.  I think my daughter has a bit of music in her too, she loves anything with a beat and can be caught dancing and tapping her toes all the time – it’s really cute.  After dinner, before bedtime, we put the TV on the music channels (the one where you don’t see videos, it’s just music) and we all just dance in the living room.   It’s a wonderful family activity.

I recently  received a CD for review that my daughter absolutely loves, and that my husband and I can enjoy too.  Generally, baby music and lullabies are not overly appealing to adults.  But like everything else in this world, that is changing too.  Rater than parents having to listen to “Rock-a-bye Baby, on the Tree Top”, yes sure a classic tune, but not one that I will be rocking out to in the car on the way to work, a new brand of CD’s allows parents and babies to enjoy classic songs that both generations can appreciate.

Baby Blanket Music combines the music that you and I love to hear with the gentle sounds that babies love.  It’s a win/win for everyone.  The CD that I received from Baby Blanket Music is John Mayer Baby.  John Mayer’s music is pretty mellow and relaxing in the first place.  I will always turn up the volume when I hear “Daughters” or any other John Mayer song and sing along.  I was anxious to hear how Baby Blanket Music would compare to the original John songs, and I have to admit, they sound just the same as the regular version, but with vibraphones, strings, woodwinds, pianos, harps and soft percussion.  Although the words aren’t sung, the verses are played out with xylophones.

My daughter loves listening to her new CD, she dances away to the soft songs, and I love dancing and singing too.  Once it’s time for bed, I can once again put the Baby Blanket Music on in the background while I read stories.  The soft calming melodies are perfect for bedtime.

Other CD’s by Baby Blanket Music include Elton John, Billy Joel, and Simon and Garfunkel – all classic artists that you and your little ones will really enjoy.   I think this would make an excellent and unique gift for anyone that enjoys music.

Iams – XL bag of pet food – CLOSED

I know that most of you have children, but I’m not sure what your pet status is.  I have a small apricot toy poodle – she’s 9.4 pounds (it’s important to include the .4 when your that little).  Her name is Cammy and we have had her almost 7 years.  Cammy is like our first born child, we adopted her just a few months after our marriage in 2003.  I never had a dog while I was growing up and never understood “dog people”, but after getting my own dog, I totally get the loyalty and love that comes with a dog.  I can’t imagine life without our little Cammy!

Ok, so what’s with all the dog talk?  Well, today I am reviewing a pet food company – this is the first pet related review I have done.  And to be 100% honest, Cammy isn’t a  big eater (she has to keep her figure), so I thought my co-worker might get better use out of the Iams dog food that I received for review.  It’s not that Cammy doesn’t like Iams (this is the only food she ate as a puppy), it’s just that a small bag of dog food can last months, so an extra large bag of dog food could last her a year, and I’m not sure if the food would still be good to eat in a year.  So for the sake of food safety and not wasting, I thought my coworker, who owns a young black lab named Enzo, would get more out of this than Cammy would.

When I asked my co-worker about doing an Iams review, he said “That would be easy, I buy Enzo Iams every 3 weeks”.  Seeing as my co-worker already bought his dog Iams, I knew that he (and Enzo) already liked the product.   There are a number of different choices when it comes to Iams brands too.  Since Enzo is only 7 months, he is still into the puppy food which is high in protein for energy and has no artificial flavors or preservatives making it easy on puppy tummies. Iams carries special puppy food for larger dogs (~90 + pounds fully grown), making sure all the right ingredients are included for their proper development.   Although Enzo can’t say how much he likes his Iams food, he surly tells his Dad by the way her scarfs his food down each day.

Iams also carries food for pups that are watching their weight and seniors.  They also have new food with Prebiotics, which keeps your furry friends healthy on the inside.  They also carry wet food and treats too.  And for all  of you cat lovers, they have a whole line for cats as well.

Flirty Aprons – CLOSED

I am not much of a diva in the kitchen.  I cook a little and I bake even less.  Thinking that I needed some encouragement to get in the kitchen, I contacted Flirty Aprons to see if they would be interested in being featured on my site.  I was both happy and a little scared when they agreed to send a product for review – because this meant I had to get in the kitchen to test it out.

I had an excellent opportunity to try out my new pink and black apron called Chic Pink, which is an excellent name for this adorable apron.  Who would have ever thought that aprons could be this stunning?  My brother and his girlfriend were coming over for dinner, so I got my apron out and started cooking.  First I have to say cooking with an apron on made me feel domesticated, and proud to be in the kitchen cooking for my family.  I felt like I looked really good while cooking spaghetti, and my husband made sure to let me know I did look good!  (Looking at the picture, I should have used the ties around my waist and tied the apron in the front to give me a waist, because I do have a waist).

I enjoyed cooking with my Flirty Apron on.  Although I didn’t want to get it dirty because it’s so pretty, the fabric is sturdy and thick enough to protect  your clothing underneath.  Another added bonus is that staining isn’t really visible because of the fun and funky prints, splashes and staining blend in.

When company arrived, the first thing they noticed was the beautiful apron that I had on!  Both my brother and his girlfriend commented on the fun / chic / classy apron that I was wearing.   And really, how can someone not comment on such a unique apron.   When I think of aprons, I think of those white restaurant aprons that are full of stains and are not flattering at all.  Flirty Aprons completely crushes the old apron stereotype.  Although the apron is technically the same style (with a strap around the neck, and a few pockets in the front), the printed fabric, and the ruffle brings this apron into the 21st century with lots of flair, style and sophistication.

I kept my Flirty Apron on during dinner (smart move seeing as we were eating spaghetti), and then while cleaning up the kitchen.  I really did not want to take it off, it made me feel that good about myself!

As if you couldn’t already tell, I love my Flirty Apron!  It encourages me to get in the kitchen and makes me feel good while working away making dinner for my family.    Women (and Men), this is one product that you both will love.

My Baby’s Green – $40 Gift Certificate – CLOSED

If you are looking for a store that is 100% eco-friendly, My Baby’s Green is the place to shop.  All (and I repeat) ALL the items are organic and eco-friendly.  If a product is on My Baby’s Green website, you can be sure that it’s going to meet your environmentally friendly standards, because Tina has done all the homework for you.

I received a “green” push along duck for review.  The duck itself is yellow, but it’s green because it’s a wooden toy and the packaging it was sent in was all reused – packing and box too.  This cute little push a long duck is kind of the same idea as the famous popcorn popper, but way cuter.  When we first received the duck we brought it to grandpa’s house.   It was the perfect toy to bring with us there, because grandpa doesn’t really have any toys at his house.  My  daughter and father pushed the duck around the house and laughed for our whole stay (over 2 hours).  At first the duck was pretty stiff and my daughter was having a hard time pushing him around, but after sometime, she got it and the duck loosened up, making it easier to push.

Like the classic popcorn popper, the duck also makes noise, but instead of a simple popping noise the duck squeaks.  Each foot has a squeaker, and as they roll along the floor they squeak.  The faster the duck is pushed, the quicker the duck “quacks”.  My daughter absolutely loves it when we push the duck around the floor really fast and move it at the last minute missing her toes.  The giggles and screams that come out of her are priceless.

I’m sure that many people may think that eco-friendly/organic/wooden toys can’t possibly be fun, but the Push Along Duck has proven to be a source of pure pleasure and entertainment for my 20 month old.  Imagine that – a wooden toy being that fun!  Eco-friendly and organic has come a long way.

This is just the beginning of the eco-friendly products that you can find at My Baby’s Green.  They carry clothing, shoes, feeding products, gift packs for new moms & babies, and their eco-friendly line is growing everyday.
