St Ives Face Soap

st ives apricot face scrub

I been trying out this St Ives Apricot Face Soap for about a month now. I bought it at Dollarama for $2.00 and thought why not try something different from the hotel bar soaps I been saving and using. (Oh yeah I am soo serious about that.) This facial scrub is all natural (which is always a plus for me), oil free, dermatologist tested and an award winning scrub in Canada. This scrub's job is to give your face a deep clean while leaving your skin smooth and glowing.




Pros:
Natural
Affordable Price
Has an award
Simply design

Cons:
I don't personally love the smell of it. It's very strong.


I love the scrub on my face, it is like I am at the spa and each bead is are extra hands washing my face. If you decide to use a wash brush it may get stuck at the bottom. So far, I have to say that I really like this product. I think I would consider buying it again in the future.

10 Awesome Baby Must Haves for 2015

baby must haves 2015

May is still Mom month. Its the time when Ellen fills the seats with pregnant tummies and bloggers talk about moms. I am going to do a little bit of both. Okay many not filling seats with pregnant tummies but talk about things for the baby. I thought I would create a Baby Must Have list that moms want or desire or even what I wish I bought. It will defiantly help out for when your friends get pregnant and you are in search of a gift or for you to keep in mind when you have a bun in your oven. I wish I had some of these gadgets for when I was pregnant. Let's see what I got in store for you!

Let's talk about cribs first. You baby needs to sleep in a crib right? Then look no further than a convertible. (not the car the crib lol) I think it is the best crib to get because it transitions along with your child from baby to toddler to almost an grown up. Its best money saving choice you can make. Graco Mason Convertible Crib is a very nice option.

If you are planning on always having the baby bag and have no desire of ever having your husband carry your diaper bag then this Carter's Baby Diaper Tote style bags are for you. This one is girly yet makes you a stylish mommy. However if you plan on sharing your diaper bag with your husband then this Skip Hop Baby Duo 3.0 Heather Diaper Bag will work for you. It was design for mom and dad in mind (in other words your husband wont be embarrassed to hold it.) Either one you choose you are going to need a reusable Diaper Wet Bag from Planet Wise. It is great on the go for diapers but when your child gets older you can also use it for holding wet clothes or wet swimsuits.

Car seat covers have gone from plain to stylish so this Itzy Ritzy Peek-A-Boo Pod, Rodeo Drive version does just that in the cutest way. Don't stop there though, you can also cover you baby with this nursing cover by Planet Wise. These are great to have and there are also version that are also a scarf too.

Rock you baby in this Nuna® Leaf™ Swing that will surely help put your baby to sleep or at least give you a moment to put up your feet. When I saw this Baby Formula Preparation from BABY BREZZA I was amazed. I remember a time when my mom would make me do the formula preparation for my siblings. Things defiantly have advance. There is even a helping hand in cooking or steaming your baby's food. Check this Beaba Babycook Pro2X Baby Food Processor and Steamer that does just that.

When its time to eat place your child in this neat Svan Signet Complete High Chair. This was featured on the Ellen show well it was actually given away to her viewers this year on her show. Of course you need to push your baby in a stroller in style. I love jogger style strollers even though I am not using it for jogging. I find the larger wheels are easier to handle. Graco FastAction Fold Jogger Click Connect Jogging Stroller is very similar to the set that I bought. Buying both the car seat and stroller in one price is a great two for one deal. The most popular stroller that every mom wants (including me... I begged for this stroller lol) is the 4Moms® 'Origami' Power-Folding Stroller. If it wasn't for the price, that stroller would have been all mine.

So there you have it. My list is complete for now. Tell me what is on your list of awesome Baby Must Haves that you seen around?

I hope you have some time, I would love to hear from you. Leave a comment to say how much you enjoyed my post or even say hi, follow me on TwitterFacebookGoogle+PinterestInstagram page or even subscribe. I will do the same! Have a wonderful creative week!

Crayon Crunch - A Personalized Adventure Book for Every Child

crayon crunch

I was so honored to be emailed by Kai Schmittat who was gracious to tell me about a dream or as he calls it a "crazy dream" that him along with Tim Osterbuhr and Friederike Geiken have. However this idea is far from a crazy dream, it is such a brilliant idea! Their idea is to make the most personalized children's book (I told you it is a brilliant idea!) Today I am excited to announce that Crayon Crunch is launching a Kickstarter campaign to achieve that very dream.

About Crayon Crunch:

The idea for Crayon Crunch was born when co-founder Friederike Geiken visited her nephew for Christmas. She brought him a personalized book, where the lead character’s name was personalized to match her nephew’s. While everyone in Friederike’s family loved the book, her nephew could not associate himself with the character. There had to be a better way!

Friederike joined forces with Tim Osterbuhr and Kai Schmittat to launch Crayon Crunch. What started out, as a project to create a better book for her nephew quickly became a mission to represent every child in a printed book.

The print picture book is entitled "My Magical Adventure". This book is a gender-neutral adventure story in an imaginary world. As a writer myself, I enjoy the process of creating characters, now this time anyone and everyone can create and design a character. Let me tell you how this works.

Online you can completely customize the lead character's name, hairstyle and hair color.

Also facial features, eye color, skin tone, clothing and even special need features such as adding an wheelchair or prosthetics and more.

After you are done customizing, you can preview the story. When you are all done,  you are all set to go.  As if that is not enough, they will ship it to you anywhere around the world!

I bet you want to know what the story is all about. The story is about your child who finds a magical box in the attic with a keyhole in the shape of the first letter of his/her name. Because the key is nowhere in sight, your child goes on an adventure where he or she meets many interesting characters that help him/her find the key. When your child finally unlocks the box there is a surprise for your child. Inside the box is a personal letter from a parent, family member, or friend who purchased the book. (Again fantastic idea!)

Check out Crayon Crunch on their Kickstarter page at the link below:

How cool is it, that you can create the main character to look like any child or look like your child! It is hard sometimes to find a character that looks even similar to you... even me, so imagine your child's face when they see a character that isn't similar to but actually looks like your child with the same name. I think it is pretty cool! I am sure some of you are like me or of different race didn't always have the luxury of have books that look nearly close to what we look like but now your kids can.
