GIVEAWAY: ToiletTree Fogless Shower Mirror! -CLOSED-

Sponsored by A truly fogless mirror! Winner ToiletTree Products makes a fabulous fog free mirror that hangs in your shower! The main reason I wanted a mirror in my shower was so that I could make sure I got all the mascara off my eyes. It seems every time I wash my face in the shower, I never totally get all the mascara off so I feel compelled to wash my face a second time. Since using the mirror, I can quickly see if a second washing is necessary. I know there are many men out there who would like to, or already do, shave in the shower. Imagine how helpful this mirror would be for them! There is even a little shelf on the mirror’s base where your man could keep his razor. My husband is not a shower shaver, but I know that he appreciates having the mirror in the shower; probably for vain reasons. I was surprised to find another use for it, though, when one night I went to turn off the water and caught a glimpse of my back in the shower.  It still had soap on it!

GIVEAWAY: Best Bottom Cloth Diapers! -CLOSED-

Review by Aimee Winner I'm a newbie to cloth diapers . I'd heard all of the horror stories of the cloth diapers that were used when I was a child. I was scared off and felt discouraged to even try at all. One of my girlfriends uses cloth diapers and changed my mind. I realized that the cloth diaper has come miles and miles above the diapers of my youth. I have been using one kind of cloth diaper, which I have loved, but have wondered about all of these new kinds of cloth diapers that are out there. I'm sure many of you have wondered as well. When I had the chance to review the Best Bottom Diapers diapering system I was excited to see what it was all about. How it works is you have a diaper shell and it has inserts that snap on the inside. That way when your child has a messy diaper you just take out the insert, wipe out the shell, and snap a new, clean insert in. The diaper has 2 closure options: hook and loop (velcro) or snaps. I have reviewed the snap diap

GIVEAWAY: Kiddie Catch-All! -CLOSED-

Winner We upgraded my daughter's car seat awhile back because she's getting bigger and the only thing I didn't like about it is that there's no where to put sippy cups, books...etc.  And in my experience, an occupied child in the car = unfurrowed brows. :)   I've been trying out the Kiddie Catch-All and my daughter is having a great time with it!  Luckily it fits on her seat just fine and fits all her essentials. :)  Go here to see a list of car seats it will not fit.  The Kiddie Catch-all is also BPA Free and assembled/manufactured in the USA.  It's really easy to put on, which is good because I have to move it to buckle her in, but it's easy enough that she can put it on no big deal.  The liner can also be easily removed and put in the washing machine! My daughter really enjoys using it.  Now she has a place for her cellphone and  OH and a ball. :)  The items change day to day, but the constant is that I don't have all ki
