Painting Lulu Book and App Review (Tomoson)

This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links




I received the 3-in-1 Coloring Book - Meet Lulu : Activity Book & Quality Kids Stylus Crayon. Free Painting Lulu Tablet & Smartphone App Included in exchange for honest review. I received the coloring book and the stylus. The app, I downloaded on Amazon for the Kindle Fire.

In the coloring and activity book, Lulu and her friends are learning about recycling. On each page, there is a QR Code, which you can scan in (if device permits) and you can view a digital version of the page and continue to color. The toddlers liked the coloring book.



I was not sure how the app would work with the Kindle since I have a Kindle Fire HD without a camera. I thought the app would install to my phone but it was incompatible. With the Kindle Fire HD, you can still color, but the app kept freezing. Some parts of the app disappeared when I erased with the stylus.

Other than that, you can color with colors and markers, using the app. You also can change brush size. Finally, you can share to Facebook. 

The app is available on Google Play, Amazon, and the App Store. The app is free. I downloaded the app on Google Play and Amazon. The app did not work on my phone, but it worked on the Kindle.

No Thanks Mommy, I peed yesterday Book Review and Giveaway(Sage BLog Tours)

I read No Thanks, Mommy, I Peed Yesterday: A Funny Memoir by Sandy Appleyard in exchange for honest review from Sage Blog Tours.







About the Book (from media kit)

Do you have kids? Do you sometimes want to send them to their bedroom until puberty? And other times, do you want to hug them until they burst?

What about those moments when they say something so innocent and incredibly cute or hilarious that you wish you had a pen and paper so you could remember it?

Well, that’s exactly what I did. My children have given my husband and I so many gifts, but the most precious has been laughter. I made a record of each funny or cute thing that they said since the moment they could speak.

It’s all here in this short yet unforgettable ‘Kids Say The Darndest Things’ style memoir. No thanks, Mommy, I peed yesterday is a witty, side-splittingly funny comedy that can be enjoyed by both young and old.

The humorous comments, explanations, and kid-thoughts will stay with you for years to come!

Author Bio: (from media kit)

Sandy Appleyard writes both fiction and non-fiction: memoirs, self-help, suspense, romance and mystery/police-procedural. When she isn’t writing books, she writes blogs, reads, exercises, and obsessively cleans her house.

Sandy is also an animal lover and gives regularly to local Humane Societies. She lives in Niagara Falls,Canada with her husband, two daughters and her cat.

Excerpt:


Me: “You guys have to try to remember to turn lights off when you’re not in a room. That’s wasting money.”

Olivia: “Yeah and when we waste money that means less money Mommy and Daddy have to buy us toys.”

Victoria: “But it’s free when Santa comes.”

My Review

The book is a hilarious look at motherhood. The author recorded humorous things, her children said and put them in a book. I loved how Olivia called a blood pressure machine an arm humper (#12).  or when Victoria was crying and Olivia wanted to tell mommy something, which was Victoria was crying.

Brad (my son) does the same thing to Kalen. For example, if Kalen poops, Brad will say stink and point at his brother. If I move too slow, Brad will rip off Kalen's diaper and bring me the evidence. He also will pick up Kalen and bring him to me, sometimes with a clean diaper and back up clothes. 

#20 and #22 was real funny. 

The book is a humorous look at parenting, from the eyes of a mother.

You can purchase the book on Amazon in paperback or Kindle format. The paperback is prime-eligible.

Organic Tart Cherry Juice Review (Tomoson)

This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.




I received Organic Tart Cherry Juice Montmorency Concentrate Vegetarian Organic Certified (All Natural Sleep Aid, Pain Relief, Fight Heart Disease, Reduce Muscle Pain, Inflammation, and Aching Joints, Neutralize Harmful Oxidants - Go Out Enjoy Your Life) Ultimate Antioxidant Sleepytime Best Pure Tart Cherry Extract 16 Oz. Fully Guaranteed, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson.

The juice contains a sleep aid, which is why I wanted to review the product. My oldest child, Brad, needs to sleep. He was on two prescription sleep aids, plus the occasional melatonin, and still stayed up all night long. Driving me to insanity because I still had to get up at 6 something, each morning, to get the boys ready for school.

The juice comes in concentrate form, which means you need to add water. The product lasted a few days in my house. Turns out, when something needs refrigeration, it becomes all access to the whole household.

Mostly everyone in the house tried the product, which was good for me, because it did put some of them to sleep. I just hope some of them added water :-).

The juice definitely helped in the Bahamas, when we was on vacation (post coming soon. working on a master video of some of the things, we did or seen).

The product is sold on Amazon, but it is currently unavailable right now. You can add the tart juice to your wish list though.

Sunsella Vegetable Steamer Review (Tomoson)





I received the NEW! Sunsella Stainless Steel Vegetable Steamer - Perfectly Steamed Veggies, Seafood, Hot Dogs & Dumplings - Handy, Collapsible Steaming Basket For Easy Storage - Expands to Fit a Variety of Pot and Pan Sizes - High Quality, 100% Stainless Steel (Including Legs), in exchange for honest review from Tomoson.

I used the steamer to steam veggies. The process was easy. Fill pot with water and let it boil. When the water is boiling, add the steamer and veggies. The steam will cook the veggies, but do not let the water completely evaporate out

I used the steamer today, as I was boiling a pot of rice. Might as well kill two birds with one stone. I had the veggies steaming on top, with the  minute rice cooking on the bottom.


The harder part was taking out the steamer, once the veggies was done, to mix into the rice. I used a towel to remove the steamer, so I would not burn myself. The steamer was also easy to clean, using the sink's sprayer.

You can purchase the product and other Sunsella products on Amazon.

Sunsella Mighty Pops Silicone Popsicle Molds Review (Tomoson)

This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.




I received Sunsella Mighty Pops - 6 Premium Quality Silicone Popsicle Molds, BPA Free, Ice Pop Molds - 100% Money-back Lifetime Guarantee! - FREE 50 Ice Pop Recipes Ebook - Food Storage, Jello Freezer Pop Molds - Make Your Own Healthy, Tasty & Refreshing Homemade Ice Lolly Treats - Assorted Fun Colors, Durable, Easy to Wash, Quick-Freeze Design, No Mess, Dishwasher Safe, Meets FDA Standards, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson.

I wanted to review the silicone molds because they looked easier than the traditional molds, which you need a stick. OR the plastic ones, with the plastic stick, which my kids lost or destroyed.

The silicone molds were easier. The first time, I used them, I filled the molds with Mio and Water. The molds went into the freezer for 4 hours and the popsicles came out without issue. The beauty of the molds is also you can use the silicone to hold the popsicle, while you eat it.

After I finished, I washed the molds with a little soap and water and dried them.

So far, all I have made is Mio Pops, but I have other ideas with yogurt or ice cream.

You can purchase the molds and other Sunsella products on Amazon. (may be a video review coming later. just have to find the footage on iphoto or imovie)

Ozeri 4X3 Digital Pocket 3D Pedometer Review (Moderna Housewares)

This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links and Images.



I received Ozeri 4x3motion Digital Pocket 3D Pedometer with Tri-Axis Technology, in Black, in exchange for honest review from Moderna Housewares.


I received the Ozeri 4X 3 digital pocket pedometer in exchange for honest review. The pedometer does keep total track of all your steps, plus steps for the week and day. What I did not like was a few times, the pedometer "blanked" out, but when it came back, all the steps was not erased. I also love the lanyard, which comes with the pedometer. I got my niece to help with tying the loop, and I wear the pedometer around my neck when I am walking.Other than that, I had no issues with the product .

I also put it in my pocket or attach it to my purse to track my steps.

Adovia Moisturizing Facial Cream Review (Tomoson)

This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links and Images





I received Daily Moisturizer Cream for Men & Women - Dermatologist Tested & Approved - Moisturizer Facial Cream with Premier Dead Sea Minerals and Anti Aging Ingredients For Deep Hydration and Skin Care Treatment - Perfect for All Skin Types Including, Normal Skin, Dry Skin, Oily Skin, Sensitive Skin, And Combination Skin - HypoAllergenic - Satisfaction GUARANTEED or Your Money Back, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson.

The cream was created by Adovia, who is known for including dead sea minerals (salt) in their products. The moisturizing facial cream is no exception. The product contains dead sea salt and aloe vera to help moisturize your skin. The product is also hypoallergenic.

You apply very little to your face after cleansing and toning your face. Applying too much makes your face feel heavier. The cream is thick.

I love Adovia's products and the cream does moisturize, but I am still figuring out how much to use without my face feeling heavy and hot.

Petunia Skincare Derma Roller Review (Tomoson)


This post contains Amazon Affiliate links.

I received the PREMIUM 1.0 mm 540 Needles Derma Roller | High Quality Surgical Stainless Steel Microneedle Roller for Face and Body | Micro Needle Roller for Skin, Eye, Wrinkles, Fine Lines and Scars, Stretch Marks, Large Pores, Cellulite Removal | Skin Care Treatment for Hair Loss, Pigmentation, Acne Scars, Scalp and Serum | Micro Derma Roller System Promotes Collagen Production | Money Back Guarantee in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. The derma roller contains 540 mini needles, which you roll over the skin to help with sagging skin, stretch marks, wrinkles, fine lines, deep scars, and acne scarring.

I was intrigued by the product, when I saw it for review. I have stretch marks on the belly, thighs, and arms. I wanted to see if it works. Took a few minutes before I decided to roll the needles on and it didn't hurt.

You roll the derma roller over an area of skin horizontally, vertically, and diagonally 10 times each. After use, you can apply your favorite product on. I use rose hip oil after a treatment.

I have noticed some difference in one area of my belly but I have to wait to see how the other areas will be affected..

The product is available on Petunia's website and on Amazon. The derma roller is prime eligible
