Whitmor 3 Tier Closet Organizer {Review}

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

I was so completely excited when we found our house; it was a long and grueling process but so worth it. When I imagined moving from an apartment into a house I was so looking forward to having so much space; so much so I wasn’t going to have enough to fill it. When we found our house I felt like something was missing. Nothing important like floors or anything like that but something still that I just couldn’t put my finger on. Then we moved in and as I was unpacking the 794 boxes, I opened a box labeled “linen closet” and then it hit me. There wasn’t a linen closet in our house! What was I going to do? Well they, towels sheets and all things “linen closet”, found their way into almost every room in our house. A towel here, a sheet there, and no where to be found when my hands are dripping wet are the dish towels. I was so completely relieved when I saw Whitmor’s 3 Tier Closet Organizer. I knew right where it was going to go and how I was going to use it!

whitmorOne thing our house does have is height, thank goodness too because My Man J is 6′ 4″. We have a lot of space underneath the shelves in the closets in our rooms. That’s what made this organizer so perfect! It’s narrow enough to fit under a common closet shelf. Yet you can load it up with all of those linens floating around your house. Here’s a look at Whitmor’s closet organizer from their amazon store.

stockwhitmor

I’m going to share with you the chaos that was our extra room closet. It has kind of been the catch all place for anything and everything. It was so crazy and because I didn’t have a solution for the craziness everything kind of just got plopped in there. It’s not what I wanted to have happen but as you can tell, that’s exactly what was happening.

IMG_4690

Now look how amazing it is in there! The 3 Tier Closet Organizer was just what this poor closet needed.The assembly was totally straight forward and you don’t need a single tool to construct it. Everything snaps together quickly and easily which My Man J was totally happy with. The shelves snap on and the drawers pop open and easily slide into place.

IMG_4696

As you can tell I’m using it for towels and sheets. You could easily use it for hats, shoes, or even just clothes. My Man J even thought I could use it to organize my crafting supplies as well. I was thinking I could stack plastic storage bins on the shelves or fill the drawers with all of the left foot socks I have lying around our house. Really though, I take both socks off at the same time in the same place. How do they get separated?

IMG_4697

All in all I love this organizer! I can think of so many other ideas for this than just for towels, and the best part is that I have the space! Are you in need of some extra organizing help in your house? Maybe you could use one for toys in your little one’s closet? I highly recommend this organizer. I think it’s good quality for it’s purpose. I wouldn’t use it for something as heavy as power tools but it’s perfect for linen closet items. I’m sure you’d love it too! Now that I have a place for all things linen, I really need to learn how to fold a fitted sheet. Do you know how?

Everyday Heroes

When Munchkin really started to dive into the world of Super heroes I was excited. We got him a few masks and discounted Halloween costumes to play dress up. He loves flying across the universe as Buzz Lightyear or sailing the ocean blue as Jack Sparrow. Then I realized that I wanted him to know that their are real heroes that save lives and keep us safe. When I first saw KidKraft‘s Everyday Heroes Play Set I was over the moon with excitement that there was an entire play set dedicated to real heroes! When the box arrived on the porch, Munchkin guessed it was a toy but I couldn’t have imagined just how much of a hit it was going to be with him and Baby Cakes!

official-kidkraft-logoWhen I opened the box and pulled out the main pieces our house was immediately filled with “That’s a cool toy!” and “oh how cool! I want to play with that!” The play set comes completely assembled except for one piece that is easily attached with the 4 screws that are included. Regardless of the short assembly, play time ensued immediately. All of the accessories were wrapped individually in two boxes. With each one I unwrapped there was another wave of excitement! Within minutes of playing Munchkin was rescuing people from a burning building and making all kinds of truck and siren sounds. Of course, when the fire fighter returned home he needed to take a bath to get nice and clean.

IMG_4488There are so many cool features to this toy! There’s a computer desk, chair, and laptop. A living room with a couch, chair, and big screen TV. There’s a bunk bed, bathtub and toilet with a lid that opens! One of the coolest little additions is just off the helipad, there is a basketball court! They have really thought of and included so many tools to aid in our kids’ role playing and use of their imagination.

fire truckBy far one of the best parts about this toy is that there are 3 vehicles, 2 figures (a policeman and fireman), and two dogs! This is so great because the toy is big enough for two but there are also enough figures for both of my boys to play at the same time.

IMG_4503The quality of this toy, Everyday Heroes Play Set, is wonderful! It’s made of composite wood products and is so sturdy. I’m not worried in the least that any part will break during playtime. On the instruction sheet it says “All of our wooden items are handcrafted, hand assembled, and hand painted. Each one is unique.”  Here’s a picture from their website of the accessories that come with the set.

cos_63239_everyday_heroes_furniture_hrwnl_copy1The play set, when opened, is a little more than 3 feet long and 2 ft 4 inches tall. The colors are so vibrant and there is so much detail, you can find new pictures every time you play! There are three levels within the police and fire station. Some of the rooms are a kitchen, break room (with soda machine), and weight room. There are two sets of double doors to let the truck and bike in and out as well as one door for every one to enter. There is also a firefighter’s pole that starts at the top floor and goes all the way to the bottom.

IMG_4522A wonderful feature is that the 2 side sections fold in and snap close making the set about 19 inches wide. All of the pieces, vehicles and figures fit nicely in the set and can be stowed in a corner until playtime begins again.

IMG_4517The replay value is high and I know it will be played with for years to come.  As my boys learn more and continually use their imaginations to come up with new adventures they will still use this set to act them out. Even Baby cakes joined in the fun making his tiny truck sounds and exploring to see what the set had to offer.

IMG_4525The set is high quality, sturdy, colorful, detailed, and just so awesome! I highly recommend it for any little boy in your life. It retails for about $130 and can be purchased here. On their website they state that “at KidKraft, we believe every child is an individual with a limitless capacity to create and explore.” I really feel like this toy lives up to that and lets my boys create fun adventures and explore the world of our real heroes.

Baker’s Mat {Review}

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

We’re moving on Saturday to a different apartment just a few minutes away.  Its really going to be a dream-home, right by the beach, and completely remodeled, HOWEVER, after we did a walk-through and signed the lease, we got home and realized…did you see a dishwasher?  I don’t remember seeing a dishwasher!  Panic!  With all the other great things going for it, this isn’t a deal-breaker, but I’m really revving myself up for this new lifestyle change!  Haha, it could be rough!

As I’m preparing for the extra number of hours of my life that will be spent scrubbing at the sink, I’ve been reassessing everything I own that is particularly difficult to clean.  Large pots and pans are up on that list, so I’ve been thinking about using more liners and mats in the future to save myself a good scrubbing in hopes of just more rinsing.  This Baker’s Mat is going to be a life saver.

81ivRSP+GvL__SL1500_I love love love any bake-ware that comes in silicone.  Its utter indestructibility makes it worth the cost, which isn’t outlandish in the first place.  Silicone is perfect to store, especially in odd places, as light as a thin notebook, and super easy to clean.

matOk, so what do I love about this mat that makes it different than others I’ve tried?  This mat feels and looks a little thicker than others.  I’m hoping that transfers to durability and longevity.  I also love the turned corners, which really helps in maneuvering it around the pan and lifting to reposition or clean.  It works like a champ!  It does everything it claims to.  No spray needed, and these sticky monkey bread bites (that should have been a huge sticky mess) came up with a spatula like a dream.

IMG_0294[1]

I plan on cooking anything and everything on this mat.  Rolls, cookies, pigs-in-a-blanket, etc.  The extra layer between the food and the pan allows for very even cooking, which is great for cookies and candies.  Because it can withstand temperatures of -40°F to 480°F, this mat is ideal for the oven, microwave, and freezer.  What an excellent way to transfer foods between locations.

Unlike some temperament Silpat mats that have to be handwashed lightly and rarely with soap, this guy can go straight into the dishwasher.  I’m so excited to avoid excessive cooking sprays and the costs of parchment in my future cooking.

A+ in my book!  You can find this mat on Amazon HERE for less than $12.

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.

What to buy Dad for Father’s Day at Brylane Home {Review}

Doesn’t Father’s Day come at just the perfect time of the year?  Just when we’re itching to hit the beach and never leave, we have a perfect excuse to buy beach equipment and beach party paraphernalia and all in the name of how much we love our Dad!

Did you hit up the beach yesterday and realize that there are a few things that would make you (I mean, Dad) a little more comfortable?  Would any of these have made Dad a happier camper?

collage

Brylane Home is FULL of these sorts of gifts and household goods that would be perfect for all of your outdoor parties, events, get-togethers, and totally chill afternoons.  From coolers, to folding chairs, to outdoor furniture, you’re sure to find exactly what Dad would love.  Just imagine how his eyes will light up when you buy him some grilling equipment or a grilling gazebo!

IMG_0279

We followed the crowd hit the beach yesterday and enjoyed the gorgeous weather here in Boston.  Brylane Home so generously sent us the Tilt & Crank Beach Umbrella with Carry Bag to review, and even though it wasn’t an extremely sunny day, this was just the ticket.  This umbrella will get used literally dozens and dozens of times this summer and beyond!

Untitled-2I’ve been hesitant about purchasing a beach umbrella in the past based on how big and heavy they look, especially if I ever want to bring it to the beach when I’m alone with my running toddlers.  How on earth am I supposed to carry a giant umbrella AND all our beach bags?  This collapsible umbrella comes in a carry bag, which solves all my concerns.  The mesh bag and plastic components make it extremely lightweight, while the metal center post keeps it strong.  The opened dimensions of this umbrella 6½’ x 8′, which is a terrific spread.

Untitled-4

This umbrella is easy to stake into the sand (or soft ground if you wanted to try this at any other outdoor event) and features a push button tilt so that you can follow the sun and get a perfect amount of shade for your whole family.  It has a double vented top with breathable mesh panels that actually help to keep it more stable since air can flow through it without lifting it off the ground and blowing away.  Very smart design.

Untitled-3

Most importantly, this umbrella is UV protected, so I feel great about letting my “littles” chill underneath it for as long as they like.

This umbrella is sold for $34.99, which is extremely reasonable.  If your Dad is a beach-lounger, this could be just the ticket.

Pick out something beach-worthy for your Dad this Father’s Day!  Ditch the traditional tie or a mug this year!

Fash’Ems {Review}

My girl, Ruby loves her some My Little Pony.  When she talks about them it’s, “My Pony” this and “My Pony” that.  She ALWAYS leaves out the mention of “Little”.  The girl knows what she wants and she knows what’s hers.    I must admit that I cried real tears of nostalgia when I realized that the My Little Pony of today is so very different that the My Little Pony of my past.  I’m talking the My Little Pony of the 80’s.  What happened to those ponies???  It’s a good thing that my girl is in love with these ponies, because it takes away the pains of a childhood lost.  I’ll admit that the look is growing on me…  Probably because Ruby thinks they are sooooo very dandy!

How can I not begin to feel this way when they make her so happy?

fashems

She received an entire fleet of Fash’Ems for this review and she was definitely not disappointed.

IMG_9186

What are Fash’Ems, you ask?  Well, for starters they are squishy.  They aren’t going to break or get scratched up the way a lot of other toys do.  And… They stretch!

The ponies come in these adorable little capsules in hot pink.  We had an absolute fun time playing hide and seek with them in the backyard!

In addition to My Little Pony there are these characters:

Doesn’t Hello Kitty look adorable?

Some of the sets even come with crowns and other accessories to dress the characters!

Fun times for my little Ruby!

Triple Shine Jellies

What comes to mind when you hear the word ‘jellies’? Is it a ton of wonderfully, delicious spreads for homemade bread? Maybe those totally cute sandals you had growing up? Did you know that in the glorious world of nail polish ‘jellies’ actually means something? I didn’t for the longest time until I heard of a cute nail polish trick called a ‘jelly sandwich’ where you essentially sandwich a design or glitter polish between two coats of a jelly polish. I’m so excited to tell you about these polishes!

Jellies is a term given to a specific kind of nail polish that is designed to let you see through it slightly. It’s as if you’re looking through a bowl full of gelatin with fruit in it. You can see what’s in it but the color of the fruit has changed because of the gelatin. The same thing happens when you use a jelly polish, the end result even looks like it would feel like gelatin. I’ve never bought any jelly nail polishes before so when Sally Hansen decided to send me their new line of Jellies I was ecstatic and couldn’t wait to try them out!

Sally-Hansen-Logo

 

As soon as they arrived I got to work seeing what I could do with these cutes! The new line is called the Triple Shine Tropical Jellies Collection. It’s made up of 6 colors (from left to right) Vitamin D-Light, Water Melon, Jell-ous?, Grape Jelly, Ice Tint, and Sea Through.

IMG_4423

Sally Hansen Triple Shine Tropical Jellies Collection

To start I wanted to give this whole ‘jelly sandwich’ idea a go. I started off with Jell-Ous? It just felt like it would be the perfect pink to go with this rockin’ glitter polish I have. I put on the first coat and was surprised by how thin it was. I kept working on it. I did an accent nail to show how the glitter looks between jelly polish coats. I did two coats of jelly polish, then glitter polish, then two more coats of jelly polish. On all of the other nails I did 4 coats of jelly polish.

jell-ous

Jell-Ous?

I really like the pink color alone. However, it didn’t give me quite the effect I was hoping for on the jelly sandwich level. Instead of trying out the same idea with all of the other colors I decided to see what else I could do with them. First, I thought that maybe I could use the jelly polish to give regular nail polish some dimension when glitter was added. I painted my nails blue then used Ice Tint to layer the glitter polish.

CollageBlue

Ice Tint

It gave it some dimension but you have to get really close to notice. I’m a huge polka dot fan! This time I wanted to give Water Melon a try. I painted my nails pink and then put a couple white polka dots on. After they dried I painted one coat of Water Melon on top of it. I did this 2 more times, alternating between dots and coats. I was shocked to see that because the jelly polish is so thin it was actually giving me this really amazing ombre effect! Now I can get this effect any time with out having to switch colors 4 times!

CollagePink

Water Melon

I wanted to see how the ombre effect would work on solid white nails. I did one coat of Grape Jelly on each nail then for the next coat I skipped my thumb nail and painted all the others. I continued dropping a nail for each coat after. The color gets oh so slightly darker with each coat. I really liked how it turned out but I wasn’t sold just yet, I really wanted a more noticeable change.

IMG_4387

Grape Jelly

I wanted to try out the last two colors but this time I started with an actual color as the base. For both of the colors I left my thumb nail just as the base color and applied the jelly polish to the other four fingers in same manner as I did with the Grape Jelly polish. I started with a light green color and then I used Sea Through to create the ombre. I love how it transforms into a green apple color! Vitamin D-Light has a delicious orange tint to it. I just knew I wanted to have the base for this one be a bright yellow. I’m loving the tangerine color it transforms into!

Collagegreenorange

Sea Through and Vitamin D-Light

Final Thoughts:

Overall I would say this line isn’t the perfect polish to use if you’re specifically going to be doing a jelly sandwich, they’re too thin and even after applying 4+ coats I don’t believe you can achieve that specific effect. However, there are so many other ways to use them! You can use them to enhance your polishes, change their color completely, or gradually change them with an ombre effect. I wonder what would happen if you painted your nails red and painted Ice Tint on top? Maybe an amazing purple tint? I can just see some ombre tiger stripes on my nails in the future! If you’re looking for a way to spice up your nail art, I would say that these are a great place to start! You can see all of the colors in this collection as well as all of their other nail polish colors by visiting their website here.

Bamboo Cutting Boards {Review}

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Warning: Use of undefined constant user_level - assumed 'user_level' (this will throw an Error in a future version of PHP) in /home/customer/www/dandygiveaway.com/public_html/wp-content/plugins/ultimate-google-analytics/ultimate_ga.php on line 524

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Behold: bamboo!  I’m seeing this element in all sorts of things lately, have you?  Bamboo sheets are all the craze, bamboo clothing is popping up left and right, and bamboo kitchen items, especially cutting boards, have been a hot item recently.  This is the Bamboo Styles 3-Piece Cutting Board Set.  Read on to see why this is an excellent find for just over $20.

IMG_9920[1]

So why bamboo?  It is naturally anti-bacterial and products made from 100% bamboo are socially responsible and very green.

These bamboo cutting boards are thick and tough.  Clearly, these are made from fine, strong bamboo, and not merely filled with particle board.  I’ve only owned thin plastic cutting boards in the past, so at first, these felt very bulky and heavy (even though bamboo is 33% lighter than Oak), but I’m beginning to see how a sturdy and durable board makes food prep a little more safe and practical.  Bamboo won’t dull your knives and the natural color is beautiful in all kitchens.

IMG_9921[1]

Bamboo can be a little more temperamental when it comes to cleaning, and the care instructions recommend not placing these in the dishwasher, but rather, hand washing with soap and occasionally applying mineral oil.  Usually, I wouldn’t bat an eye at anything that involves more maintenance than a cycle in the dishwasher, but since we’re moving next month to an apartment without a dishwasher, we might be able to make this work 🙂

No dyes or colors have gone into the construction of these boards.  They are food safety tested and free of fertilizers and pesticides.

IMG_9922[1]

Overall, I’m really liking these boards.  I think I’ll get over the fact that they are heavy and not dishwasher safe, and focus on the anti-bacterial qualities and the sturdy construction.

You can purchase this set on Amazon HERE for $21.97.

SuperSwizz Spiral Slicer {Review}

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

If you sometimes find veggies boring, or its hard to think of creative ways to make them appealing again, I’ve found a great product for you.  This is the SuperSwizz Spiral Slicer, available on Amazon for $19.95.

IMG_9865[1]This really is a simple contraption, but it is really fun to use and really effective on crunchy fruits and vegetables!  The double cyclone has two different sizes of blades that allow for two Julienne sizes.  Just insert a food item and start cranking.  The grates are sharp and it takes minimal effort to twist and get instant food shreds.

 zucI think my favorite features about this product are its size and care.  The contraption doesn’t come with any interchangeable parts, doesn’t need to be fastened to the counter, and its small enough to fit anywhere among the appliances.  I LOVE that all it takes to wash is a rinse and a cycle in the dishwasher.  I love my low-maintenance tools and they seem to get used the most.

IMG_9870[1]

What you get is a platter full of professionally sized veggie strings along with the awkwardly shaped stubs at the end.  You can crank more goodness out of the ends by spearing them with the sharp circular lid so that your fingers don’t get too close to the blades.  What you see are very long, continuous zucchini straws, which require some chopping afterwards to make them easy to serve.  I cooked these up for visiting family guests last night, and they told me the zucchini was delicious and fun to eat!  We discussed the product and decided that we probably wouldn’t pay $20 for this item, and that maybe $10 would be more reasonable, but if you’re really into fine dining, like to impress with your cooking, or have a hard time eating vegetables, that this might be totally worth it.  I think its a really fun product!

Remember, you can find this on Amazon HERE for $19.95.

I would say I’m lucky enough to be in the category of people who have poor enough vision that there’s a need to wear glasses or contacts, but I can still find my way around the house with them.  I find myself to be even luckier that I don’t find contacts terribly irritating or even noticeable half the time.  I think a lot of this has to do with the type of contacts I wear.  For several years now, my optometrist has prescribed me Acuvue Oasys with Hydraclear Plus, and they’ve been the best things for my eyes.

 air

I can’t say that I notice all of these incredible features, or fully understand the reason why they are so superior, but I can definitely say that what makes these stand out is how they completely disapear on my eyes.  From the moment I put them in, I forget they’re there.  They are so rarely dry and they stay in place even after light eye rubbing.  I’m ashamed to admit it, but I sleep in these ALL THE TIME.  Kids that get up at 5:30am will do that to you.

IMG_9740I think a lot of these benefits have to do the with Hydraclear® Plus technology.  It helps the contacts feel moist and gentle, even at the end of the day after wearing them for hours.   Acuvue even makes extended wear lenses that you can wear overnight for up to six nights in a row.  Imagine not having to take your contacts in and out every day and night.  These lenses also have fantastic UV protection, so you know that even with clear lenses, you are taking care of your eyes.

IMG_9741 Acuvue Oasys with Hydraclear Plus lenses, as well as dozens of other trusted brands, can be found at ReplaceMyContacts.com.  They have excellent rebate options, low prices, prescription help, and free shipping on web orders over $75.  When this incredibly generous supply of contacts runs out, I’ll certainly be doing more shopping on ReplaceMyContacts.com.

If you’re in the market for new contacts, ask your optometrist about the new Air Optix Contact Lenses, which utilize a new silicon hydrogel technology.  They are available for night & day, astigmatism, multifocal, and new this summer: COLOR lenses!  I’d be very interested in trying them out!

Visit ReplaceMyContacts.com and order your next pair of comfortable lenses!

I loved the consistency of this sunscreen. It was thick and creamy and had no smells that came when putting it on (no teary eyes, no whining because it’s to strong and smells yucky)  What I love about this product is that it was created by a group of parents. A lot of other parents including their wives were saying how they wanted to protect their child’s skin better. This is where they came up with babyganics. I really like companies who reach out to the community and find out what’s most important to them.

They also offer so many more baby-safe products. Laundry detergent, toothpaste, baby wipes, hand sanitizer. You name it!!! My husband makes fun of me because I literally wash my hands after anything I do (OCD maybe? haha) but I always have to have the best soap in our kitchen so it doesn’t dry out my hands. Babyganics hand sanitizer is amazing and the ingredients are so great for kids! Definitely check out their other baby-safe products and see what you can get your hands on!

So get your babies ready for summer the right way! A cute hat, some fun shades and some Babyganics! After all, don’t we all want “smooth as a baby’s bottom” skin 😉
