Check Out Scotties New Look and Their Great Cause! & Giveaway #ScottiesKittens

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.



When you think of kittens, most of you would think "super soft!" That is what Scotties wants you to think of when you think of their tissues too! They are both super soft!

To help you remember this, they are celebrating a new mascot and box design! Plus, Scotties has sponsored adoption fees (up to $15,000) for select cats and kittens across the country!


Scotties Facial Tissues recently announced that all summer long, from June to August they will be holding sponsoring cat adoption events along the east coast. Scotties will work with rescue organizations in Boston, MA, Raleigh, NC, and Tampa, FL in order to waive adoption fees for prospective cat owners in an effort to place them in loving homes.

This private/public partnership with animal rescue organizations is a key public service focus for Scotties on the east coast in 2014. All adoptable cats will have been spayed and neutered and are up to date on all shots and vaccinations.


Scotties hopes to rally support for this cause and to put approximately 100 – 150 cats nationally into their forever homes.

So head to your nearest retailer and pick up some Scotties tissues! You will support a great cause and feel how soft Scotties tissues really are!

Avalon Bay AB-WINE27DS Wine Cooler

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.


My husband and I love a great glass of wine after a long day, to celebrate a special occasion or with a tasty meal. We have a nice wine selection but until now have had to just store them away in a closet because we had no place to put them!

Now we are so excited to display and keep them at the perfect temperature with our new wine cooler from Avalon Bay!


Wine connoisseurs know that to preserve flavour and aroma, wine must be store and served at just the correct temperature. The Avalon Bay AB-WINE27DS 27 bottle dual zone thermoelectric wine cooler is the perfect solution for storing your favourite vintages. Enjoy the perks of being able to store both your red and white wines at their correct temperatures. The upper zone has a temperature range of 44-64°F, while the lower zones range is 51-64°F

The silver trimmed door comes with a digital control panel that operates both zones. Behind the door also lays a world of fun. This unit comes complete with an LED interior light, which illuminates your collection, making it easy to find and organize your favourite bottles.

There are so many awesome features of this wine cooler: that it stores 27 wine bottles, that it has two different temperature zones so you can store your reds and whites at the right temps, and we LOVE the blue LED lights!


Dual Zone Design

The AB-WINE21DS can easily store your wine at a temperature that best brings out its flavors, aromas and structure. With its dual zone design that features 2 independently controlled temperature zones for simultaneous storage of both reds and whites, you will never have an opportunity to complain about your wine again. The temperature range of the upper zone is 44°-64° F and bottom is 51°-64° F. Enjoy the pleasure of adjusting the temperature to your desire with the touch screen digital control panel located at the top of the door, which radiates a LED display.

Fits Any Decor!

This model will fit perfectly in your kitchen, dining or mini bar area as it has a sleek and compact design. Showcase your collection to all your guests, without opening you mouth. As this wine cooler comes fully equipped with an interior LED light, it beautifully radiates your collection, without causing extra heat within the unit.


SO QUIET!

You won't even know that the wine cooler is running, as with its thermoelectric cooling system its extremely quiet and vibration free. We have never noticed a sound difference from the minute we plugged this cooler in. We never even know it is running!

Customizable

And if the occasion arises for some Champagne, you can easily remove the shelves to accommodate larger bottles. With its 9 removable chrome shelves, you can easily make room for larger bottles of wine, or if the occassion arises, some Champagne. We have put bottles of all sizes in this wine cooler and they have all fit nicely!


Additional features: 

  • Easy to use digital temperature controls 
  • Freestanding 
  • LED digital display and interior LED light 
  • Removable chrome plated racks 
  • Silent and vibration free operation

I haven't been this excited for something to arrive in a LONG TIME! I have been searching for a solution for storing all our wine bottles to keep them fresh and display them nicely and this wine cooler is so perfect! It looks so nice and is a perfect size to fit in any home bar or kitchen! Plus, I love that it holds so many bottles and controls two different temperatures for both white and red wines! It has everything we need in a great size and great look!

Stoneridge Orchards Organic Dried Fruit

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.


Well, with a brand new baby in the house and two others under 5, life is definitely busy and crazy! Sometimes, I don't even have time or hands to eat! I have to always have quick snacks stocked in the house for easy and healthy eating!

These days, when I need my fruit servings and a little energy boost, I grab the organic dried fruit from Stoneridge Orchards! They are great to eat while nursing, holding baby, or quickly grabbing when on the go or even sending in a lunchbox when the school year starts for your children. And they’re so good, which makes it easy for kids to make healthier choices for themselves.


Stoneridge Orchards are dried fruit experts who have been farming their own delicious Montmorency Cherries for more than 40 years on their family farm. Stoneridge Orchards offers these delightful little berries, packed with antioxidants, in a number of innovative varieties that each come in a resalable bag. Kids love the wholesome cherries on their own in convenient one-ounce snack packs – or dipped in dark chocolate or Greek Yogurt. All of Stoneridge Orchards’ products are free from artificial colors, flavors, hydrogenated oils and sulfites.

My favorite products were of course their organic varieties! Stoneridge Orchards Certified Organic Dried Fruits are perfect straight from the bag, mixed into trail mixes, yogurt or hot cereal, or in crowd-pleasing recipes including amazing appetizers, baked goods, creative salads, and masterful main dishes!

They offer Organic Cherries, Berrymix and Blueberry varieties. My favorite was definitely the Premium Berrymix because then I got all the fruits in one bag!!


The Organic Premium Berrymix is a luscious blend of blueberries, montmorecy cherries and raspberries. Handpicked and harvested from the world's finest orchards. Perfect as a healthy snack, toppings on your favorite dessert as well as baking.

These berries are still soft and chewy and I love easy they are to eat on the go or when busy! They are healthy and a great source of vitamins and nutrients and never contain any added icky chemicals or ingredients! I highly recommend Stoneridge Orchards organic dried fruit in your child's lunchbox this school year (or yours!)

Buy It: You can purchase all Stoneridge Orchards products from Amazon.com or a local retail store.

Lovin' Summer with tommee tippee!

 This post is brought to you by tommee tippee. All opinions are 100% mine!

{Sad sigh...}

Yes, summer is almost over. Where did the time go??

It has been a fun summer in our house...trips to the beach, the local Children's Museum, lots of walks, garage sales and the birth of our third child!!!

And who has been there every step of the way?? One of our favorite brands - tommee tippee!

Their products have refreshed us in the heat, fed my children delicious summer salads, breakfasts, and so much more, and we even got a chance to stock up some tommee tippee baby essentials for our new baby - pacifiers, bottles, and sippy cups for when he is older!

Take a look at our some of our children's favorite times with tommee tippee this summer:

My daughter using her tommee tippee spoon to eat a tasty tuna salad and staying refreshed with a tommee tippee spout cup!
My daughter LOVES her tommee tippee spoons and uses them for almost every meal! They are the perfect size for her hands and mouth and they give her just the right amount of food in each bite!



My oldest son was so proud to show off all the new tommee tippee products we have received and will use soon with our newborn son!

And then there are the shots of my newborn already loving his tommee tippee products! Well, he really does love them...it just doesn't look like it in this pic.... :)

Showing off a tommee tippee bib and bottle! He can't wait to use them!

And I just couldn't resist this cute one of him cuddling daddy alongside the tommee tippee bottle!


Now we get ready for school to start and for the first time we send one off to school this year - my 4 year old is heading to Pre-K! It will be a new experience for us all and I can't wait! And I am sure tommee tippee will be right there alongside us every step of the way!
