Babies Can Be Detoxed, TOO!

I just LOVE my baby nephew. He is such a chunk and he is now almost 4 months old. My sister went ahead and got him vaccinated (I disagree with vaccinating, especially babies, but this isn't about pro or anti-vax). So, I had her use the detox foot pads on his little feet. He used them for a couple days post vaccinations, and the foot pads were super gooey and then started slowing down on the gooey-ness (that is a word, I am sure!) as his body detoxed.

See how adorable he is?

and this is a cute picture of his feet with the foot pads!

Here are the first foot pads that were taken off! 

Here is the second batch

Here is the third batch -- one of them didn't stick very well

Here is the 4th batch of foot pads!

While I hate all the toxins in vaccines, if you feel that it is necessary to vaccinate, I recommend that you consider detoxing your baby afterward to help get the heavy metals, mercury and other yucky ingredients out of your poor baby's body.

The foot pads can help with that. One single foot pad can fit on the whole foot, making it easy and less expensive to detox your baby vs detoxing an adult.

Babies also detox a LOT quicker than adults as well. They should be fully detoxed within two weeks if not within days. Adults take months to detox fully, thanks to the many years of exposure to toxins!

I really recommend the foot pads for all babies and kids. I have some customers whose kids ask for the foot pads, calling them "stickers" -- "Can I wear the stickers on my feet tonight?" and it is very intuitive that kids know what is good for them.

I also have customers who can definitely tell a difference in their school age children -- they sleep much better and are much more attentive in class.

Bottom line. Kids are exposed to more toxins and chemicals than they ever have been before, throughout the ages. Keep them healthy by detoxing them!

Glasstic Brand Glass Water Bottles - Unbreakable!

The Glasstic shatterproof glass water bottle is awesome. I only drink out of glass, except on the very rare occasion when I am traveling and need to buy bottled water from a store. I have broken my share of glass bottles. Months later I have found glass shards in the carpet behind my bookshelf! I may not be coordinated but I sure am clumsy!

This Glasstic works great because I can put a slice of lemon or lime into the water, or other fruits of my choice, and not worry about the acidity mixing with the plastic. It is pure glass but has a protective outer shell that makes it shatterproof. Well, nothing is completely shatterproof, but if you do happen to run over it with a steamroller, the outershell will contain the glass shards so you don't have a mess to clean up!

One of the most common uses for this Glasstic water bottle is to put a drop of your favorite essential oil into your water. Because of the volatile components of the essential oils, they say not to use plastic for sure. This way, you won't have to worry about that. 

However I do need to note I do not agree with the ingestion of essential oils without proper supervision from someone who knows your medical history and is certified in aromatherapy.

That being said, many people do ingest oils, and so if you do, so be it. :) I am not here to judge, but so many people who read my blog know that I don't ingest oils, and so I had to write that disclaimer.

Some of the highlights of this water bottle are:
  • Shatterproof: Because of the design, glass on the inside, and a BPA-free protective outer cover, it won't break on you if you accidentally drop it. Glasstic also offers free glas insert replacement for the first year if you happen to break it (see the steamroller note above, hah!)
  • Easy to clean: You can disassemble the glass water bottle and clean it by hand, or put in the top rack of the dishwasher.
  • Easy to Use: This has a leak proof flip top cap so you don't have to worry about spilling. I also like it because I just hate leaving my drinks open without a cover. Bugs tend to be drawn to them and too many times I take a sip only to realize a bug is in it! yuck.
  • Take anywhere: These Glasstic bottles have a handle on them for ease of carrying.

Baby car seat cover and drool bibs

This set includes a car seat cover that can be used as a nursing cover or shopping cart cover, and comes with a drawstring carry bag plus three gender neutral bandanna drool bibs. 

It has stretchy fabric that should fit all car seats, shopping carts, high chairs, etc. The car seat cover helps protect baby from the elements.  And it matches the diaper bag perfectly!!

Since I got this for my sister to use, she has this to say about it:
I love the design and how thin this is. It is so helpful when nursing in the summertime and is a great car seat cover for summer babies! Even comes with a drawstring carrying bag. 
Comes with three bibs with adorable designs! I like that the bibs have two layers and come with two snap sizes. 
The quality of both of these is pretty good. The only drawback i have is that the snaps on the bibs are plastic, so I wonder how long they would last. Still, much better than velcro! Overall, I would recommend this product.

Here is my cute nephew, the little chunker!! He is 5 weeks old in this picture:

The cost is super affordable -- only $18.99 at the time of posting this. The company offers a money back guarantee if you are not happy with it.

Nutri Maqui Liquid Antioxidant Supplement

I had the opportunity to try out this Nutri Maqui Antioxidant Supplement. I am always looking for something that tastes good enough so my husband will eat or drink it! He doesn't swallow pills and it is hard getting vegetables into him, so I know he needs better nutrition.

I finally found some gummy vitamins that he will take (Thank you, Costco!) but I know that is not enough. So I got this liquid supplement to try.

This supplement is made out of different fruits: the dark purple maqui berry, acai berry, pomegranate, elderberry, blackberry and raspberry. All of these berries and fruits are high in antioxidants. The Maqui berry is indigenous to Chile and has been consumed for centuries by the Mapuche Indians to help support energy and immune health.

The color is a dark purplish, and the taste to me is like a straight cherry juice (not fake cherry flavor). It is ok, something that my husband will take when I remind him, but it is not something he will seek out on his own. (unfortunately).

I do not see taking this long term. I cannot find information about how high of an ORAC value it has, and I think I would rather focus on the fruits from my own yard -- we grow elderberries, raspberries, and blackberries, and also have goji berries among other fruits. And a large garden filled with green vegetables.

Once opened, you have to refrigerate and consume within 30 days of opening. There are 32 servings in it. Which means if you are the only person consuming it, 30 days will have passed before the 32 servings are up. That is confusing to me as well.

I am just a bit wary about products that don't have a ton of information about them, or cause some confusion -- like the 30 days refrigeration but there are 32 servings in it.

They do have the obligatory recommendations:

-- Consult a physician if you are pregnant, nursing or taking prescription medication
-- Shake well before use
-- Refrigerate after opening
-- Serve chilled
-- Do not use if safety seal is broken or missing

I do think this might be a good product, however I think they need to re-label or re-package into maybe 8-oz size bottles, or single serving packets, etc.

New Air Spring Water Dispenser (WAT30B) and Spring Filtration Bottle (WAT10W) Review

I have a new favorite item in my house. It is this New Air Spring Water Dispenser and Spring Filtration Bottle. I am in love.

It will look nice almost anywhere in your kitchen, and it has some pretty good features as well. 

Let's talk about the Water Filtration Bottle. It is the coolest thing! It isn't much more expensive than a Brita water pitcher, and the carbon filter lasts a lot longer (making it cheaper in the long run!) It turns crappy tap water into filtered water!! And you put the bottle on a water dispenser, so you can have instant hot or cold water -- no need to take up room in your fridge.

See, I told you, super cool!

It holds 3 gallons at a time, and will filter a total of 221 gallons before you need to replace the filter.

Super easy to use, and extremely convenient. 

The replacement filters are affordable and super easy to change. You should not have any issues with it, and it will be 6 months or more before you have to replace the filter.

Now let's talk about the Water Dispenser Unit. First off, it looks very nice. It is classy looking and will go great in many different kitchen styles. It comes with hot, cold and warm dispensing options. 

I drink TEA all the time! And I love having the hot water available to me 24/7 at my command. I like the cold water feature as well, because anytime except winter I like to drink cold water. It is either hot tea or water for me to drink.

I will probably be the only one to say that having this won't make me drink more water. Because I drink water like crazy. I just LOVE having it so much more easy to access, especially the hot water, like I mentioned above. Most people, however, will say how easy it is for them to drink more water, just because of availability. When you have water accessible, it gets used more. 

This is important for those who are looking for better health. One of the first things health gurus recommend is to drink more pure water!

It has a storage compartment at the bottom which I think is pretty neat in and of itself! You can store small items in it, including cups. 

And read below for a chance to win one of these units:

ENTER TO WIN A GIVEAWAY!! Yes, New Air will be giving a unit away to a lucky winner, and it would be awesome if it could be YOU!


You can find these dispensers on their website here

And you can find these on Amazon here:

Here is my video review of this complete water filtration system, from the bottle to the dispensing unit:

Steward Pet Foods -- Raw and Freeze Dried... and HEALTHY

Stewart® Raw Naturals™ Freeze Dried Pet Food is a huge treat in my house!! Both my cat and my dog absolutely LOVE it and will do any amount of begging, pleading, tricks, or even give me the puppy dog eyes to have me give them some.

We use it as a treat vs a meal because my dog is 95 lbs and right now we feed him grain free kibble, with raw organ meats and other raw tidbits as we get them. He is 8 years old and healthy. My cat is 11 (almost 12) and she is healthy as well. The vet could not believe she is that old. 

What is so good about Stewart Raw Naturals? Well, they use human grade ingredients. Their products are prepared with a single source protein (or limited source) and they add fruits, veggies, etc to it to provide vitamins and minerals. Then, they freeze dry it in its raw state, making it shelf stable. 

Pretty cool, right? We got the Fresh To Home Turkey Recipe and it is extremely tasty to my dog! He goes bonkers over it (I haven't tried it personally but if I decided to, I think I would need to cook it first because we shouldn't eat raw turkey). 

The food is complete and balanced. And, it is made in the USA. It won't have any of the fake Chinese ingredients in it. Like I mentioned, they use human-grade ingredients, and prepared with whole, real foods. You can use it for all breeds and life stages and it is filled with nutrients. 

If I could afford it, I would have it be the main meal that my dog eats. But it is expensive and he eats about 4 cups of kibble a day! So it is used for treats only :)

Compact Camping Stove

I received this "camping stove" today and it comes with the two pans (they are tiny, like one serving size) and the igniter thing that you screw onto a butane canister (the 4oz ones are smaller and easier to carry). It doesn't come with the fuel, but for around $20 it is pretty affordable. 

You probably would need more than one if you are using this for your whole family. But for a bug out bag for emergencies, it isn't too bad at all. super small, easy to pack and carry and lightweight.

You even can hook it up with an adapter, to a larger propane canister, but then you will have to rig the igniter up because it isn't stable just sitting on a rock or flat surface.

Here are some of the features:

  • DURABLE MATERIAL: Made of aluminum alloy and stainless steel which can stand high temperature and weight
  • COMPACT AND COLLAPSIBLE: Both the pot and pan have folding handles for space saving and compactness; The handle is foldable and easy for storage, with a silicone tube cover to protect your hand from burning. A mesh bag is included to hold everything
  • COMPACT AND COLLAPSIBLE: High-energy ceramic piezoelectric ignition system make it very convenience for outside camping or hiking. Compact and collapsible design combined with a carrying case for enhanced portability
  • PERFECT KIT:This set is perfect for camping, backpacking, hiking, emergency preparedness, or as part of a survival kit
  • LEAVE NO TRACE: Adheres to "Leave No Trace" principles set forth by the US Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, and National Park Service. Burns clean, with no debris or soot left behind. 2 Year WARRANTY

High Quality Furnace Filters For Your Home

I got to review this set of high quality furnace filters for my home. Most homes have only one filter, and it is near their furnace. But my home is weird. There are two air returns and both of them have filters (in different sizes!) which is quite odd. So we have to change two filters each time we replace the filters, not just one! The sizes I have in my home are 20x20x1 and 14x14x1. 

Anyway, you should really change your filters every 3 months, or 6 months at the bare minimum, especially if you have allergies in your home, hay fever etc. 

We have a dog and a cat and know it is important to us to have a clean home. So we want our air to be clean as well.

These particular filters are 14x14x1.

These will filter all the pollen, dust, dander, that gets distributed in your homes' HVAC system. It can cause allergies, hay fever and itching. But these MERV8 filters will filter all that out and protect your indoor air quality.

They are made with pleats to increase the particle holding capacity, and also to increase the air flow. They allow your furnace to operate more efficienty.

And one of the best things is that they are made in the USA! The price is affordable, and the positive effects are worth it for sure!

Lightweight and Compact Mummy Sleeping Bag

This is a very SOFT and comfy sleeping bag. Well, let me get it off my chest first that I do not like mummy bags at all, as I feel too confined in the sleeping bag to ever get comfortable. Other than that, it is comfy. It feels good to lay on it. 

It also is extremely lightweight, and very compact. 

It appears to be well built and good quality, as well. And it can be used for many things, including emergency preparedness, backpacking, boy scouts, camping, and sleepovers.

As you can see from these pictures, my 95# dog is taking a nap in it. I laid it out on the floor to test it and take photos, and he burrowed in it and fell asleep. I had to use these pictures for this post because he is so cute and he makes a good model. 

This sleeping bag is rated to as low as 30 degrees F. While I have not tested it at that temperature, and don't ever plan to, I do recommend that you not use this in the middle of winter outside. I think that it should be fine for Spring through Fall.

The material is made out of polyester, with the fill being cotton. It easily rolls back up into the tiny bag, to be used for whatever purpose. Maybe leave it in your trunk just in case?? It is not expensive, only around $30.

Nice Crossbow

What a fantastic bow!

First off, it is a nice looking hunting bow. I like that it comes with a scope. But please bear in mind I am not an expert. I am just a layman who really loves bows, and I especially love crossbows. My husband put it together, and the instructions were very hard to understand. But we got it.

Then, we started test shooting. It came with 4 arrows. We shot three of them and each one of them bent, one of them even broke! We figured it out that it was because we were aiming for something in the dirt (an old volleyball) but we kept hitting the hard ground. This is powerful, so you want to aim for something softer, so it can penetrate.

The scope was pretty accurate, and we were aiming for a ball (volleyball, old, dirty, etc) in the dirt mound beyond our property, and both my husband and I got super close -- just a little bit under where it was. Once we get our straw bales up (we got them tonight) we will be able to shoot a better target!

We took a video of my husband loading the arrows, and then there is a picture of the arrows -- three of them we have shot, and the 4th one we haven't used yet. We need to go get more arrows. Man, if only I had some decent fletching skills!! I think it would be great to be able to make your own arrows. 

If you buy this, you will be getting a decent bow, but be careful with the arrows -- be sure to hit things that are softer, not harder. For example, if you go hunting and hit a deer, you will be fine. But if you hit an Oak tree your arrow might bend. That is why the scope and accurate aim is important!

Lightweight and Compact Sleeping Bag

I give this sleeping bag a 5-star rating. I got it to review, and was thrilled! 

My 5-star rating is based on the following:

1. This is inexpensive for its weight class and temperature rating
2. It is SUPER lightweight and doesn't take up much room.

If you consider those factors, this is a fabulous bag. It is lightweight, so it is great for backpackers who are under 5'10". I say that because in the picture above, my 5'9" husband was modeling for me, he went inside the sleeping bag and we zipped it up. He put his arms in the bag as well. He weighs 200 lbs and sleeps on his back. In the picture, his feet are touching the bottom and his head is out of the bag (he is covering it up because he didn't want to show his face, silly man).

Some factors to consider: It is inexpensive, so the materials / stitching are probably not going to last through a lot of rough wear and tear. I can see kids rough housing at a sleepover and tearing the bag. So just be aware of that.

If you need a sleeping bag to keep in your car, or to take hiking or backpacking, or keep in your boat, or wherever, where space is limited and weight is restricted, then this is your bag.

If you are looking for a durable, long lasting high quality bag that will be able to withstand a lot of wear and tear, this is not your bag. Just keep that in mind when you are searching. I have a zero degree high quality bag for when I am camping all year round, and it is actually a bit too hot for me in the summer, so this will work perfect for me.

We got a new showerhead

I love reviewing products, especially when they are items that we need and can really use. In this case I got to review a brand new hand held showerhead, for our bathroom.

We had an old yucky waterpik in our bathroom, that was hard to use, it had hard water build up and sprayed all over. We bought our house two months ago so we have been focusing on other things in the house to update, until I got the opportunity to review this new showerhead. It has 7 settings plus an on-off switch and can be used as a handheld or a standalone shower fixture.

One thing that is important to us is to have the handheld shower nozzle. Our other two showers don't have them, but we need it to use in our walk in shower, to bathe our 95 lb dog. If you have never used one of these to bathe your dogs before, then you are missing out. SUPER easy.  Bathing the dog is not a chore anymore. (Can't speak for the bathing of cats though!)

It was SUPER easy to install. It took my husband less than 15 minutes. And there are no leaks in the plumbing.

If you want to buy it, Check it out here.

Archery as a Sport is Becoming Super Popular

Robin Hood. The Ranger class in my MMORPG game. And now Katniss Everdeen. For as long as I can remember, as a kid growing up, my favorite "weapon" of choice was a bow and arrow. It was so cool, and looks awesome!! And to this day I still get teased by my siblings about my favorite movie, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. And I really enjoyed the Hunger Games movies as well. And I will skip over any detailed mention of when I played Everquest, haha! 

Anyway, I got the opportunity to try out and review this 50-70lb draw weight compound bow from Leader Accessories. 

And as you see, this is not me that is in these pictures or the video. It is my husband. Because I had shoulder surgeries and for the life of me, haven't gotten my complete strength back yet. So I am unable to draw the arrow back yet. We adjusted it down to 50 lbs. It was super simple to adjust. 

And so my husband got to have a lot of fun with it, target practice in our backyard. And I got to watch how perfect he looks. 

The bow is extremely comfortable in my hands, it is not too heavy, but super strong. It is a camouflage color which makes it easy if you go hunting. This definitely can be a hunter's bow, if you do like bow hunting.

My husband is left handed and he felt comfortable using it. He holds it like a right handed person would, though. 

Here is a video of how smooth the arrow flies off the bow:

This bow is surely a lot of fun! Archery is becoming a ton of fun thanks to The Hunger Games, lots of the teenagers these days are super into it! This is a great bow to get (not for younger kids because they are unable to draw the bow.... and even some older kids might not be able to. Just keep that in mind).
