These maternity pants from Mumberry are so freaking awesome. And pregnant women everywhere will totally love them. The fabric is so soft, stretchy and comfortable. EXACTLY what you want in maternity exercise pants. They are very well crafted and durable. And, they are made in the USA (yay!! quality right there!), unlike many other exercise pants.

They Definitely a flattering cut on the pants, which will make every pregnant mama feel like a hot mama! Sure, you could just use these for exercising (they have a super comfy support for your belly, wow!)... but with how comfortable they are, I definitely think they'll be in the everyday wear rotation, too.

They come in heather gray and black. You have to feel the material to appreciate how amazing they are. The fabric is buttery soft and the belly support band has a patent pending! That is how fantastic they are, providing support and comfort.

The Mumband is so much more than just a maternity support belt. It is built right in to all the Mumberry maternity activewear, and supports your belly with gentle compression and upward lift, allowing you to do more during your pregnancy.

The pocket is large enough for your small essentials, even a larger smart phone. The fabric is moisture-wicking so you will feel cool and comfortable while wearing them. The super stretchy fabric and chafe resistant seams provide ultimate comfort and freedom of movement. Mumberry maternity fitness clothes are made of the highest quality materials available and are designed to grow with you throughout your pregnancy.

Stainless Steel Compost Bin For Your Kitchen

This countertop compost bin is great for many purposes. If you are looking to reduce waste, make compost for your garden, or just keep scraps together to feed to the chickens, then this is something you want to look into!

It has a sleek design, made out of stainless steel and actually looks nice in your kitchen. You can use it for vegetable peels, apple cores, egg shells, potato peels, coffee grinds, tea leaves and more. Just don't put meat in it! If you want, you can put it on your countertop or under your sink. It is a little bigger than a milk jug so that gives you an estimated idea of the size.

It comes with filters that you keep in the lid, so the odor doesn't escape. The filter is activated carbon and it is really good at absorbing any unpleasant odors during the composting process.

We are avid gardeners -- both in pots and in the ground, and compost is our best friend. It enriches the soil and adds nutrients to the soil so that the plants can grow stronger, bigger, and healthier. You do want more tomatoes, right? So do I!

Green Earth Ceramic Frying Pan

This green earth ceramic frying pan is non stick and non toxic as well! This particular one is 10" in diameter and it uses GREBLON, which is an ultra-safe ceramic coating made in Germany, and it is 100% PTFE and PFOA free. Way better than Teflon!

This is a great pan because it features a scratch-resistant ceramic coating that is super easy to clean. The pan itself is made out of durable heavy-gauge die-cast aluminum with no heavy metals or harmful chemicals in it. (I thought aluminum was a heavy metal, but this is what the manufacturer says, I am hoping they know what they are talking about).

It is heavy duty and really has substance to it. It is not lightweight, but with the  heat resistant silicon coated handle, you can cook with it and hold the handle without getting burned. It has a magnetized induction stove safe base for rapid heat transfer if you have a ceramic stove top (the flat ones).

The inside of the pan has a textured surface that not only makes really cool marks on the food you are cooking (like pancakes or grilled cheese), but it also allows it to deliver enhanced heat distribution and superior non-stick performance without ever releasing harmful fumes or toxins.

The scoop? It is nice and easy to cook with and to clean. It comes with a little flannel type pad so that you can stack it with your other pots and pans and it won't scratch.


Collagen+C and Pomegranate from the seed

I love good, wholesome supplements that have great benefits for people. I take antioxidants and vitamins and certain other supplements due to my specific needs and my body's requirements. One that I just started taking recently is this Collagen+C pomegranate liquid plus the Pomegranate from the seed capsules.

These are pretty neat. Collagen has many health benefits, especially for connective tissue, joints and bones, but also it is amazing for hair skin and nails. When I started taking collagen, I definitely could tell a difference because my nails grew 2x as quick as normal, and so did my hair! I have always had pretty decent skin so I was unable to tell an immediate difference in my skin.

Pomegranate's legendary health benefits date back over 5,000 years. Scientific studies show pomegranate extract as one of the most active and superior antioxidants. These two products together work like a charm.

The Collagen+C Pomegranate Liquid combines the antioxidant benefits of pomegranate with the beauty benefits of NeoCell collagen. The daily dose is only a tablespoon, which you can drink directly, or mix with water or juice, or even herbal tea.

The Pomegranate from the Seed capsules are made from the juice extracted from the seeds. The seeds contain the highest level of antioxidant capacity. A serving is 2 capsules, and taking it daily offers up 1,000 mg of the pomegranate extract.

NeoCell products are sold at many health food stores nationwide, including Whole foods Market, GNC, Walgreens, CVS etc.

Mamaway Ring Sling Baby Carrier

Mom's of newborns are the busiest and most sleep deprived species on this planet. So many things to do, but baby needs attention. This Mamaway ring sling baby carrier comes to the rescue! Think of it as being similar to the hands free feature on your cell phone. You can still carry on conversations without having to use your hands! Your hands are free to do other things, like the never ending pile of laundry, or other household chores.... or, since we should have daddy do all those household chores, your hands are now free to go shopping!! Your baby is happy because he or she is able to snuggle up to you.... and now you can be FREE!

This is awesome... so many friends of mine rave about how baby wearing is the best thing in the world. And so Mamaway has this ring sling carrier that has a lot of neat features to provide comfort to mama and baby.

This thing that makes this special is that it lasts from the time your baby is a newborn until they no longer wish to be carried. (Well, when they graduate high school that may be a bit too big!). This is the perfect sling for getting things done while you are out and about, it also is calming to babies and is easy to breastfeed discreetly. (I don't believe you need to be discreet when breastfeeding - I believe you do whatever your baby feels most comfortable with).

It is a one size fits all, and can be adjusted to fit different body sizes and positions, in mere seconds. What's more, is that it is easy on your back. Your baby's weight is evenly distributed along your back and shoulders to comfortably carry your baby or toddler for hours on end.

It is 100% cotton and machine washable. Hang to dry.

6 Piece Kitchen Utensil Set

I really enjoy having nice quality items in my kitchen. And I just got this 6-piece kitchen utensil set from Culinary Couture. It is heavy. It weighs a lot because it is solid! These pieces aren't just cheapo plastic that you can get from the dollar store.

This culinary couture set is very heavy duty, high quality. It would make a GREAT housewarming gift, or wedding gift. It has a price tag of $35.99 but you get what you pay for. It probably isn't the best to give to an 18-year old college student living in the dorms, or even on campus apartments, but for a newlywed couple it would be great. Many many years of use you can get out of these things.

They are made from 304 grade stainless steel. They have been designed to last longer than generic ones, and give you the best value for your money.

They have an ergonomic handle for best functionality. The heat resistant silicone handles make using them safe and easy. The silicone will protect you from heat displacement if you leave the utensil in the pot while cooking. And, they won't scratch or damage your pots and pans.

Yes, you know you want them!

A nice quality tweezer set -- review

I can NEVER find a good pair of tweezers in my house when I need them. And with my husband doing woodworking and making furniture as a hobby, he is always asking me for some because of splinters.

This high quality tweezer set comes with four "tweezers". A flat one, a slanted one, a pointy one and a pair of nail scissors.

It comes with a carrying case to store them, and this set that I received will always be the place to keep them. I will not allow them to be removed and used elsewhere! I will be that kind of person and make sure they don't get lost.

We also used them a lot of times to remove ticks from our pets, when we lived in Central America. During dry season the ticks are so horrible. Even walking on the roads my dog would get 10-20 ticks EACH TIME. He knew that after each walk I had to "pick the bugs" off him. It was horrible. So tweezers are something we use all the time.

We can use these for plucking eyebrows and stray hairs. I can use it to pluck the hairs on my husband's back, and like I mentioned, his splinters! You need really sharp ones for splinters and these are super sharp.

I am not sure what to use the scissors for, maybe hang nails? I currently just use a nail clipper for them, but I will have to try the scissors out for them and see if it works.

Makeup containers

I make a lot of makeup and personal care items. And I really enjoy having little makeup containers to put them in. If you make lotions, makeup or other items, these would be awesome and perfect for you to fill up and hand out as samples, to lure customers to your product!

They come in a case of 50 and they are tiny -- maybe half the size of a Burt's Bee's lip balm container that you are used to. They are acrylic and have a screw on lid that screws on tightly. You could even put thinner consistency lotions in here (or eye cream, or even toothpaste) for when you are traveling, or to keep as safety stock in your purse when you go out, and the lid will screw on tight and won't leak.

They are just a little over 1 inch in diameter and 0.64 inches high when the lid is on. The capacity in the little jar is 5 grams.

They are perfect for sampling like I mentioned, or storing eye shadows, makeup, creams and other cosmetics. Especially good for mineral powder makeup.

Since they screw together easily, you also can store acrylic powder, liquids, nail designs and more nail art related items if you do nails.

There are so many uses and you will be pleased to have this, for an affordable price, for lots of things!
