GIVEAWAY: FIVE Little Green Books! -CLOSED-

Winner

Little Green Books from Simon & Schuster has an eco-friendly series that I got to check out.  The books teach about the benefits of recycling, how they can help endangered animals, and dangers of global warming, to name a few.  Not only are the theme's environmentally friendly, but so are the actual books!  They are printed on recycled materials with vegetable or soy inks.   I think that is so great!
And I also like how they are teaching kids to grow up to be earth friendly adults.

Little Green Books has a great book list, here is what I chose to review:


This is Our World: A Story About Taking Care of the Earth also has a double sided puzzle!  Now that my daughter is into puzzles she really gets excited about this book.  Plus the story is cute and has a positive message. 

Don't Throw That Away! is a Lift-the-Flap Book and that's always a crowd pleaser at my house.  Great book about recycling.  Something I want to teach my children while they are young.  I love ho…

GIVEAWAY: No-Bake Key Lime Cheesecake Bars! -CLOSED-

Sponsored by Tomoson.com
Winner

The other day I made Key Lime Cheesecake Bars from Plentiful Pantry.  The hardest part was waiting for them to cool in the fridge!  There's no baking involved, all you add is butter, cream cheese, and water.  I still had 2 bricks of cream cheese that I got for FREE at a sale awhile back so that made me happy.
The filling was really good but the kicker is the oreo cookie crust...YUM!
All you're doing is adding butter to the cookie crust and pressing it into a plastic wrap covered 8 x 8 dish.  Then you mix the rest of the ingredients...beat them for a few minutes...then pour.  Stick it in the fridge and do something to take your mind off of it for an hour.  :)  
Now...getting it out of the pan all pretty....not my strong suit.  But that doesn't affect the taste so I couldn't care less.  This is the picture from the site:

and this is the best I could do:  (I'm eating some now...delicious!)

Imagination Box Co. Review + 20% off Coupon Code!

.
I love these!  Imagination Box Co. sells award winning, environmentally friendly, creative toys.  Not only is your child busy painting/coloring it, when it's done your child can play with it!  Your able to paint/color the inside as well!  I received a cottage to review.  It came looking like this:


There are easy instructions and washable watercolors.  I'm not the best at putting things together and just prefer to make my husband do it.  But I thought me doing it would be a good test to how easy it is.  It took me a few minutes, but I DID IT!


You can tell from the picture that my daughter adores it.  She even hugged it. lol  I love how the windows and doors are big enough that your able to see what's inside and play.  I'll have to open it back up (easy) so that we can first paint the inside.


Imagination Box Co. also has a country barn, firehouse, castle tower, and a schoolhouse!  Prices start at $15.95.  And for $15 you can get a blank house to do your own thing on.

GIVEAWAY: Strawesome Reusable Glass Straws! -CLOSED-

Winner

Strawesome (first of all, coolest name ever!) sells reusable drinking straws made of glass!!  The straws are made from the same glass that is used to make Pyrex.
Borosilicate glass is non-toxic, beautiful, and made in the USA.  You can also wash them in the dishwasher!  Which is always a huge plus with me.

I received a straw to review and I absolutely love it!  It cleans really easy.  They sell brushes, but if you rinse it with warm soapy water when your done using it, a brush isn't necessary.  It comes clean and you can see that it's clean.  The straw feels super sturdy and I'm not scared at all that it's going to brake on me.  Also, I prefer to drink juices with a straw for the sake of my teeth, so I really love having a straw around always.  And I don't know why but I drink WAY more water when I'm using a straw, so I've been very well hydrated lately. :)

Not only are they better for the environment and not leaching toxins into your liquids, they …
