Feltbo Letterboard

Have you seen those pictures online where someone is announcing their pregnancy, their wedding, a birthday, a special event, a menu, etc? Don't many of them use some sort of fancy announcement board?
I received one not too long ago, and guess what? I think it's great for all of those things that I just mentioned, but I get the most use out of it teaching my little one how to read and count. 

Yes, you can use it for that too!!

My new #feltbo black felt letter board included the board that can either be placed on the sturdy little easel it comes with, or even hung on a wall like a picture. 300 white plastic letters, numbers, emojis, and symbols come with. There are also little scissors included, to cut them out. There is a storage pouch to keep them all in, when not in use. 

The little letters, numbers, and whatnot stick on the board by the little pegs on their backs. You slip those into the grooves on the board and they stay put. 

I did say that I use this as a learning tool for my daughter, but the pieces are fairly small, so I always make sure to keep a close eye and never leave her alone with it. 
I love that she enjoys learning new words and bigger numbers with it! 

I do plan on using it in future photos with my family. My husband actually used it on my birthday last month. He left a cute little message for me!

Big Ant Travel Pillow

I met my husband 9 years ago. He introduced me to the world of traveling. I had never really left my city that often until we started dating. Now, we try and take road trips and trips on a plane a few times a year with our kids. 
I love it so much. I definitely caught the travel bug! I'd love to travel to so many places that we've never been to. I think as the kids get older, we'll start going to new places. 

This set of products that I'm about to show you is something good to have during those trips.

First, let me talk about the very unique neck pillow. It is the grey material in the picture above.  When I first saw it wrapped up in its packaging, I wasn't really sure what to expect.
I've used those U-shaped neck pillows and inflatable travel pillows before, but nothing like this.
It's actually really neat, because it wraps around your neck like a scarf. It closes securely with velcro. Inside, there are plastic supports for your neck. No more stiff neck on the plane, train, bus, and car.
Guess what?
The scarf part is machine washable! All you have to do is remove the inner supports before tossing in the washer. The scarf material is really soft, it's warm, and I like the color of it. It keeps your neck comfortably aligned and it's super cozy.  So good, especially because it can get cold on those planes, trains, and buses. 
Also, as a bonus, they included some ear plugs and a sleep mask in the set. The black sleep mask has an adjustable strap that wraps around the back of your head. The mask is soft as well, and made in a way so that it doesn't rest totally flat against your eyes. It has a bit of  a curve around the edges, making it more comfortable against your nose and lashes.
The orange ear plugs are very soft and flexible and kind of mold to your ear shape when you pop them in.
I'm telling you- this is the perfect nap kit! 
I'm seriously going to be stashing this into my travel bag for every trip we take in the near and distant future. 
I can't wait to use it all as a set.

Oh, and by the way, no, you don't have to only use it when traveling. It's also the type of set that you can use when you need to take a quick nap at your home or office desk, when you're sitting up nursing your baby, when you're sitting in a waiting room or lobby at the hospital, etc.
Bet you didn't think it could be used in so many ways, huh??
You're welcome!!

#BigAnt Car Trash Bag

I'm a bit of a neat freak. I'm sure that I've mentioned it before. 
One of my biggest pet peeves is a dirty car. OMG. It drives me so crazy, sitting in a car full of trash. I try to clean the car as often as possible.

Guess what? I even have a travel trash bag inside of it now. This is by BigAnt.

It's not very big, it's about 9 x 10 inches, but it's really nice to have in the car. You can fit a regular plastic grocery bag or small trash bag inside. There is an opening along the top or you can always just leave the top open. 
There is an adjustable strap to wrap around a head rest or wherever you want to attach it and it'll stay put in there. 
The bag has a mesh pocket on either side, as well as a pocket in the front, for storing extra bags, bottles, or whatever you want to put in there. 
The bag is also waterproof!

What's nice is that if you really wanted to use it for another purpose, like say, maybe a lunch bag or diaper bag, etc, you totally could. Having those extra side pockets is great for that reason. 
Take it in your vehicle, when camping, hiking, having a picnic, an outdoor party, and whatnot. 
It's a nice product to have for multiple reasons.

Bookroo Monthly Subscription for Kids

Besides writing and singing, reading has always been one of my favorite things in the whole wide world. I learned how to read at a young age and would read so many books, every single day
I still read several books a month, by the way.
I love being able to escape from reality, even if it's just for a little while. 
To me, reading is a very important thing to teach your children how to do. They're never too young in my opinion. I started reading to both my kids when they were still inside of my tummy. My son was reading books out loud, on his own, by the age of 3. My 2 year old daughter is following right in his footsteps. I try and read with her several days a week, and she absolutely loves it. My son likes to read to her as well.

Bookroo is a book subscription service dedicated to kids. 

They have a few different subscription plans to pick from. You can choose monthly, 3 months, 6 months, or 12 months. 
They have two options:
You can choose board books or picture books. The board book package, geared toward ages 0-2, comes with 3 of their handpicked books, and the picture book package, geared toward ages 2-6, includes 2 books. 
They now also include a junior package with 2 chapter books geared toward ages 7-10. That last package is still in the beta stages.

No automatic alt text available.

I love that they use pretty wrapping paper to wrap every book that they send. What kid wouldn't want to receive a few surprise gifts each month, right?
It makes the whole thing even more exciting! It also encourages your kiddos to look forward to reading.
I personally love the selection of books that were picked for my children. Both of them were very happy and we all got to reading right away. 

This is an incredible subscription service that I highly recommend.

#Bomax SD 4 in 1 Card Reader

The latest product that I received is this 4-in-1 SD card reader. The name says it all. 
You can connect it to your phone, tablet, or computer. It can be used to view, edit, or transfer files from your SD card or micro SD card, by inserting it along the bottom. 

As you can see, it is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. This is so convenient. You can stick it in your pocket, bag, or attach a key ring to the little loop. 
I like that it has covers for each side for when you are not using it. You wouldn't want to damage any of the connectors, so this helps a lot. 
The connectors include a USB connector for computer or some tablets, a lightning connector for certain apple devices, and a type C connector which is used for a lot of newer phones and devices. Since my phone and tablets are older models, I simply had to connect a different adapter onto the type C connector, that I luckily already owned.

This is what it looks like when connected to my laptop, with a micro SD card from my camera.
Very nice and innovative little product. Perfect for bloggers, for work, school, photography, etc.

Here's a video that I made on the product:

Cutest Toddler Plate On The Block

When your infant or baby eats, things can definitely get messy.
Am I right?
Even for the ones that become pros quickly, a mess will eventually happen, okay?

It's nice to have a plate that is meant to stay in place like this super cute one below

No automatic alt text available.

And it's a bear!!!!! 
Other great things about this particular product?
Well, it's BPA free, lead free, PVC free, and made from food grade silicone. It is both dishwasher and microwave safe.

I love how easy it is to be cleaned because my daughter has been using this plate over and over and over.

Image may contain: food

You can use the big area for the main meal and then the tiny little ears for sauces, snacks, etc.
If not for food, you can use it for finger painting!!! Use it for educational activities, counting, sorting objects in it, etc.
Any way that you decide to use it is up to you. 
Also, if they do actually end up dropping this plate, it's not going to break or tear. It should last a very long time. 

This product is definitely mommy and toddler approved at my house for sure!

Where can you get this product? Right here.

Ghost in My Maroon 5 Cover Song

Alright, yes, if you know me, I am a bit of a paranormal magnet...I have been seeing, hearing, and just sensing spirits and whatnot since an early age. A lot of people didn't believe in this sort of thing until they started hanging around with me. 
It was the inspiration for the book my husband and I both wrote a while back

A Dance of Light and Darkness by [Traynor, Ryan, Traynor, Niki]

Well, anyway, I have never been able to catch any of it on camera before yesterday. I was singing a Maroon 5 song on the Smule Sing app that I'm constantly on.
I was watching the playback when I noticed it in the background. It literally gave me chills because I was the only one standing in that kitchen. My kids were in the living room, in front of me, watching tv and dancing.
Yes the video is dark, but I only had one kitchen light on, and the foggy effect in front was a video filter. I use that filter often, but that had nothing to do with what you see come up on my left side, behind me...

Now, I was  little embarrassed to post it at first because I messed up on the lyrics, but I couldn't believe what I saw. I had to share. 
Check it out for yourself below and let me know that you think in the comment section below. 

You'll see it at around the 1:49 mark.

E-Z Seal Reusable Storage Bags

As you all know, I cook a ton of food every single day. There are almost always leftovers, not because we don't enjoy the food, but more because I just make a lot. I do have tupperware containers but I only have so many. These new bags that I just received are a nice addition, as well as a money saver.

These are E-Z Seal Reusable Storage Bags. Five come in the pack and they are in different sizes. 

Image may contain: food

As I said above, they are reusable, which is nice when compared to those plastic zipper close bags that you have to toss after you use them. 
As you can see in the bottom right image, they are made from food grade material, they are BPA free, freezer safe, and travel friendly. 
They are also  lead fee, PVC free, leak proof, and dishwasher safe. You can use them for food like I am doing with most of mine. I am leaving one of the bigger ones for when I travel. I like that they are see through, so I can store my makeup inside and be able to take it on the plane, I hope. 
You can also use them to store toiletries, baby products, small toys, for home organization, as a pencil/pen pouch, etc. 
So many uses.

LG Appliances Twin Wash

I know. Most of us hear the word laundry and cringe. 
I have a small family of four- two parents, two children, but we go through a lot  of laundry. Sometimes it seems neverending. I'll finally fold several loads of clean laundry only to turn around and be greeted by a new dirty pile. Seriously, how does that even happen??
If you have kids, you know what I'm talking about, I'm sure.

I've recently heard about the Twin Wash and SideKick LG appliances. Let me tell you what I've learned!

 What is your favorite feature?  How would you use in your household?

I'd have to say that my favorite feature about this product is that you can wash two loads at once!! With my family, this would be perfect. I already wash several loads every week, so why not make it just a bit less time consuming, right? I could see myself doing a big load of everyone else's stuff and then doing my toddler's clothing and delicates in the other part. 
There is also a magnetic remote control that comes along with it and steam cleaning technology. I'm literally blown away with all of that. 

By the way, The LG SideKick is TWIN Wash compatible so if you already have a LG front load washer, it might work perfectly with it. (There's actually a list of compatible washers at the link below, in case you want to make sure yours is.)

With LG’s TwinWash system you get the best of both worlds. For small loads that can’t wait (The sweatpants after hot yoga, the red shirt in a pile of whites, the dirty school uniform on a Sunday night) there is the LG SideKick pedestal washer. You can even use it simultaneously while you do a bigger load up top on your LG Front load washer.
Not only do these washers have mega capacity to tackle any size load, they are energy efficient while giving you the best cleaning performance. No wonder more households have chosen LG laundry over any other brand!
 From 1/11-4/25 receive up to $500 off a LG laundry solution for your home.
