Princess House Cookin’ Kids™ Collection Review and Giveaway–ENTER TO WIN

24 Dec

I’ve been talking lately about holiday traditions with the kids. I think we have officially started a new one…baking holiday cookies.

Yesterday was rainy and dreary and the kids first official day of winter break. I had an opportunity to review the Princess House Cookin’ Kids™ Collection and it was a perfect day for it. The kids were so excited when I showed them the kitchen tools that were made especially for them and perfect for creating our cookies.

The Cookin’ Kids Collection offers real working tools designed to be used safely by small hands. The perfect excuse to spend quality time with the kids! Some key components:

· Built-in rests keep tools elevated to minimize mess.

· Aprons have pockets to hold tools and adjustable neck and waist straps.

· Mixing Bowl has clearly marked measurements inside.

· All of our Cookin’ Kids™ products have been designed for children ages 8 and up

Initially just the girls were in on the action but once my too cool son saw how much fun we were having he wanted in on it!

The tools are top-quality stainless steel, BPA-free plastic, stain- and odor-resistant and silicone, melamine, 100% cotton.  It’s a good thing my daughter had on that cute apron because when we were done she was covered with flour!

I let the kids have free reign with the design and look of the cookies…they used the wonderful holiday cookie cutters and then designed them as they pleased….so….here are our holiday cookies…

and I love them!

and I love them!

Kids’ Hale Muck Boot Review and GIVEAWAY — ENTER HERE TO WIN A PAIR!

22 Oct

A few weeks ago I got a chance to check out the new Kids’ Hale Muck Boots at the Parenting Experience in NYC.  With all the rain, blizzards and hurricanes we deal with here in the NY area it can be quite a challenge keeping my 3 properly boot fitted for the inclement weather.  I am frequently hearing complaints about ill-fitting, soggy, socks falling down, cold uncomfortable feet in boots that barely last us a season.  So I was thrilled to be able to nab a few pairs of the Kids’ Hale Muck Boots to bring home to try out in fabulous bright colors.

As a mom there’s always that concern about color selection…you think you’ve chosen wisely only to come home to disdain from the kids.  Thankfully though, my children were thrilled with their beautifully colored boots!

Really though, how could they not be happy with these boots!?

The New Hale by Muck Boots, will keep them comfy, warm and dry, no matter what they get into.  Here are the details:

  • The stretch-fit topline binding is snug around the calf to keep warm air in and cold air out
  • Fully insulated with 4mm NEOPRENE. This provides the optimal warmth, comfort, and waterproofing that you expect from a Muck Boot.
  • The PK Mesh lining allows for breathability
  • The Diamond tread self-cleaning outsole wraps the entire perimeter for maximum protection and stability that doesn’t track mud!

Did you see that? Doesn’t track mud!!! I don’t know about you…but that is another absolute plus for me.

I see great fitting, dry, socks in place, warm, comfortable feet in fabulous boots in the future of this mud free home!!!  And I don’t know what it is about these boots but once the kids had them on they ran around the house like complete lunatics.

This was me:  hey kids, can you please put on your gorgeous Muck Boots so mommy can take photos for her blog?

And this is what I saw:

After some threats and yelling gentle,  I was able to get the kids to relax for a second to let me take a few more shots :).

The boots were pretty easy for them to get on and off and they had no problems at all running and tackling anyone in them!  They can’t wait for a load of snow on our snow mountain to really test them out!

How much would you love for your kids to have a pair?!

Win a Pair of MUCK BOOTS — ENTER HERE!

9 May

Many busy moms dream of getting lost in the garden for a few hours, planting flowers and digging in the dirt. The Original Muck Boot Company’s Breezy Cool is the perfect slip-on shoe to wear in the garden. The casual, all-purpose shoe is designed to wear in the warm weather and to keep feet cool. 100% water and weather proof, these boots can stand up to any outdoor activity! Pair these shoes with a beautiful Spring plant and it’s the perfect Mother’s Day gift for any avid gardener.
Breezy Mid Cool

New for Spring/Summer 2013 comes the Cool Series with XpressCool™ technology, a unique evaporative, cooling liner featured in the Breezy Mid Cool. As the foot begins to sweat, the XpressCool fabric rapidly pulls moisture away from skin as the lining absorbs and spreads the moisture back out across the boot. As the moisture spreads and dries, it creates a cooling effect which keeps your feet cool and dry in warm weather.  In cold weather, the lining keeps bone-chilling moisture away from the foot, keeping it warm and dry.

Built for women, the Breezy provides the ultimate fit and comfort. Featuring a 4mm flex-foam bootie with a four-way stretch nylon, the boot is 100% waterproof, lightweight and flexible.  A new lightweight EVA outsole features rubber pods for optimal traction and support and an etc® sockliner reduces friction and heat build-up.

The Breezy Mid Cool is a casual boot for women to wear all year round. Available in sizes 5-11, the Breezy comes in block colors of Grey/Green, Plum Perfect/Lavender, Chocolate/Dusty Pink, Purple/Purple Print, Blue/Blue Print and Green/Green Print.

A few weeks back wrote about Muck Boots and I’ve been delighted with my pair.  They are super comfy and my feet are kept dry in the rain.   There is no worse feeling than that of wet feet!

The Limited Store Preview AND $100 Giveaway…ENTER TO WIN! (CLOSED–winner chosen)

16 Jun

A few weeks ago I attended the opening of  The Limited’s flagship store in Roosevelt Field Mall.  Bloggers were invited to hear about the complete redesign of the store which will be emulated in all the other Limited stores.

As I walked around the store I thought about how many years ago I first became a Limited shopper…it was in high school and let’s just say that was OVER 20 years ago…yikes!

The store is a lot smaller than I remember.  This is intentional as the idea is to make the shopping experience more intimate and homey…sort of like imaging yourself in your own giant, beautiful closet of your dreams!

New to the store is an accessories section of which we all gravitated.   Now you can pick out your clothes and complete the outfit with jewelry and shoes…nice!

But the coolest part of the store visit was the dressing room.  Each dressing room is outfitted with a button.

When you need assistance you just press your button and not only does it light up on the outside, but the staff covering the dressing room gets alerted in an earpiece that help is needed!!!  If multiple customers need help the staff can tell by the blinking light who “rang” first!  I don’t know about you, but my dressing room visits in other stores are usually lonely (no staff to be found) and gross with clothes everywhere.  The Limited keeps the tried on clothes behind a curtain as another way maintaining a relaxing ambiance in the store.

I always did well with clothes from The Limited so I’m excited about all the new features and styles.  And you should be too because…one (1) Just Another Manic Mommy reader will win one (1) one hundred-dollar gift card to The Limited!!!

You can enter up to 4 times.  Each of the following will earn an entry with number one being the only required entry (and the others are additional entries):

  1. Leave a comment here about why you like shopping at The Limited.
  2. Became a fan of Just Another Manic Mommy on Facebook, post on the wall about this giveaway, and leave a comment here stating it.
  3. Became a Facebook fan of The Limited  post on the wall about this giveaway, and leave a comment here stating it.
  4. Become an email subscriber of Just Another Manic Mommy, and leave a comment here stating it.

Entrants must be 18 or older and located in the US only. Winner to be chosen at random on 6/23/12 and notified via email.

Simply Cranberry Cocktail $150 Great Taste Prize Pack Giveaway — ENTER TO WIN (Closed)

6 May

I really like the Simply Orange Juice products and drink them regularly.  I especially love the Simply Lemonade with Raspberry and frequently have to fight my girls off so that it’s all mine!

This spring, Simply Orange Juice Company introduced a new addition called Simply Cranberry Cocktail.  Because it is a not-from-concentrate cranberry juice, it can only be found in the chilled section of the grocery store to ensure its natural, fresh sweet and tart cranberry flavor.  We are big cranberry juice drinkers over here so I am quite excited to try it.

Like all Simply product’s, Simply Cranberry Cocktail is built on the foundation that the first step of anything being truly wonderful is a great foundation.  Great taste means starting with something authentic and letting its true expression come through – whether that’s in food, style, or merely a way of being.

In my home I’ve chosen earthy colors that make me happy and the walls are covered with photos of the kids that make me smile.  How do you let your great taste shine?

Because great taste is better when shared with others, Simply Cranberry Cocktail is offering one (1) Just Another Manic Mommy reader one (1) Get Together & Enjoy Great Taste Prize Pack valued at $150!  The Get Together & Enjoy Great Taste Prize Pack consists of:

You can enter up to 4 times.  Each of the following will earn an entry with number one being the only required entry (and the others are additional entries):

  1. Leave a comment here about how you let your great taste shine or about what you like about Simply Orange Juice products.

UGG® Australia Kid’s Shoe Review and Giveaway — ENTER TO WIN

11 Jul

My little man has some awesome new footwear, the UGG Australia Kid’s Halfhitch Boat Shoes.

If you’re like me, when you think of summer shoes and your little guy, it’s sneakers, flip-flops or sandals.  Sometimes though, we have to spiff him up a bit for parties and those other shoes won’t work.  He has wide feet and it’s been a challenge to find shoes other than sneaks that are comfortable.  I often end up cramming my little man’s Fred Flintstone feet into nicer looking shoes that make him miserable.

And speaking of misery, he was in a bit of a mood when he got dressed for his cousin’s graduation party.  He refused to leave the garage so I could take his photo in his new UGG® Australia Kid’s Halfhitch Boat Shoes.  (And you know how I love mad face pictures!)

But once he walked around (which turned into running around and attacking his sisters) my little guy seriously ended up loving his new shoes!  And then he happily agreed to pose for a pre party photo. :)

When he got to the party, his was so psyched because his older cousins all noticed his UGG® shoes and he felt ultra cool.

They look comfy and casual like sneakers, yet dressier.  My son now calls them his “party shoes”.

Kid’s Halfhitch | The kids UGG® Halfhitch is inspired by a warm weekend family sailing trip. A pint-sized version of the traditional boat shoe, made with canvas or suede uppers and hook and strap closure for easy adjustment and on off.

*    Toddlers size 10-12

*    Kids size 1-13

*    Colors: Medieval blue, Stout, Natural & Taupe (Natural is shown in these photos)

*    Price: $50 USD

They are really adorable and comfortable, and most importantly,  my son approves!  We love them already.  And guess what…

One (1) Just Another Manic Mommy reader will receive one (1) pair of UGG® Australia Kid’s Halfhitch Shoes!

Each of the following will earn an entry:

  1. Check out UGG® Australia and leave a comment here about why you would love UGG® Australia Kid’s Halfhitch Shoes for your little guy.
  2. Became a fan of Just Another Manic Mommy on Facebook, post on the wall, and leave a comment here stating it.
  3. Became a Facebook fan of UGG® Australia, post on the wall, and leave a comment here stating it.
  4. Become an email subscriber of Just Another Manic Mommy, and leave a comment here stating it.

Certain Dri Review and Giveaway…Enter to Win!

6 Jun

I received a sample of Certain Dri antiperspirant and promptly tossed it my husband’s way.  He is an excessive sweater and has been known to purposefully lift up his arms at parties to show off his sweat stains.  (I wish I were kidding.) I could go on about it but I won’t :).  (He actually volunteered to have me take a picture of his sweaty pits and post it on here!)

The point is that he is a lifelong sweater and nothing has worked effectively.  However, Certain Dri does a good job!  He is pleased and has  been sauntering around amazed at how dry he is feeling.  It must be pretty cool.

Certain Dri Product Facts:
The Certain Dri Protection System™

  • This doctor-recommended, non-prescription product is applied several times a week at bedtime.
  • According to an independent survey, a majority of dermatologists prefer the Certain Dri® formula for treating hyperhidrosis or excessive perspiration, over the formulae in all the other anti-perspirants combined.
  • Certain Dri® is colorless, fragrance free and has been categorized as safe and effective in the ongoing review of non-prescription drugs by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
  • Because of its therapeutic ingredient, Certain Dri® is used differently from all other anti-perspirants.
  • It is applied sparingly at bedtime, and it will not wash off after bathing/showering.
  • In many cases, the user will discover that it will not be necessary to apply Certain Dri® every night to control the problem.

Certain Dri Anti-Perspirant is available with 12 percent aluminum chloride, the active ingredient used in prescription anti-perspirants. Because Certain Dri® is water-based (vs. alcohol-based like its prescription competitors), it is available without a doctor’s prescription.

Do you want to try Certain Dri?

One (1) Just Another Manic Mommy reader will receive one (1) box of Certain Dri.

Each of the following will earn an entry:

  1. Check out Certain Dri and leave a comment here about why you need it.

Hanes Review and Giveaway! Enter to Win…

9 Apr hanes_logo_130x114

 

I was happy to see the Hanes table at Getting Gorgeous last weekend.  Hanes was showing off their new cushion-socks and a ComfortFlex Fit bandeau.  Cushion-socks!?  I was intrigued and so excited to nab a few pairs to try out.  The background is that I have the most achy feet.  It takes forever for me to find comfortable shoes and I am easily irritated by socks that are usually too tight OR too loose and then sliding down in to my shoe (hate that).

I’ll admit I was suspicious when the gals at the Hanes table told me the the Hanes Casuals Cushioned Low-Cut Women’s Socks would not slide down my feet.  I mean why would these socks be different than all my others?

But boy oh boy did my feet get a treat!  I’m all about these socks that are plush, snug (without being too snug), and warm (cold feet over here…)  And, THEY DON”T SLIDE DOWN!  My feet get comfortable with Hanes!

Here are the official details about these fab socks:

  • Extra-soft cotton blend feels soothing, heel to toe.
  • Cushioning through the sole pampers your every step.
  • A hint of knit-in stretch assures better fit and feel.
  • Ribbed stretchy top stays up comfortably all day.
  • Cotton/acrylic/polyester/nylon/spandex/natural latex rubber

The best part is that Hanes has offered to let one of you try them out too!

One (1) Just Another Manic Mommy reader will receive 3 packages (3 socks per package!) of Hanes Casuals Cushioned Low-Cut Women’s Socks.

To enter? Easy.

Visit Hanes.com to check out the best-fitting most comfortable clothing.  Then, each of the following will earn an entry:

  1. Leave a comment with your name and email stating something you love about Hanes.
  2. Became a fan of Just Another Manic Mommy on Facebook, post on the wall, and leave a comment stating it.
  3. Became a fan of Hanes on Facebook, post on the wall, and leave a comment stating it.
  4. Become an email subscriber of Just Another Manic Mommy, and leave a comment stating it.
  5. Post a link to this contest on your blog, and then leave a comment on this post with your link.

Winner will be chosen randomly on 4/22/11 and notified via email.

The Couponizer® Review and Giveaway — ENTER TO WIN

15 Oct

Did you notice that coupons aren’t just for grocery stores anymore?  I’m so overwhelmed by them that they end up scattered all over my bag, my car, the car floor, etc.  I’ve tried organizing them with a few envelopes in my bag, or keeping them in a box in my car.  But the bottom line is that I never have the one I need when I need it and I therefore don’t save any money.

However, it’s all starting to change.

I received The Couponizer and now I am pleased to say that I have an organized way to shop with coupons.

It’s a spiral bound book that has pockets alphabetically labeled with every imaginable coupon category (from baby to vegetarian) plus more dividers with additional category pockets (like coupons expiring this month).  I particularly love the section for receipts, as they too, end up all over my house, everywhere but with me when I need them in the store.

Anyway, this little baby makes me want to get coupon clipping and The Couponizer comes with scissors to make that part even easier!

Here are the official features of what’s included:

The Couponizer® – 8″ x 5¼” book with 18 grocery coupon pockets, 4 generic coupon pockets, 3 gift card/shopper loyalty sleeves, shopping pockets
Shopping list – 20 page tear off list pad with cardboard backing
CoupStacker – Pre-sorting mat color coded to match the system pockets
CoupTracker – 15 page spiral-bound list pad with cardboard backing
Scissors
Clear vinyl zippered carrying bag

Check out all the information here:  http://www.thecouponizer.com/  If you want to order The Couponizer right now, you can use the coupon code OCTOBERCODE to receive a a 10% discount!

It really is the perfect coupon organizational system to put coupons in their place!  I love it when I have something that makes me life easier….and you can too…

One (1) lucky Just Another Manic Mommy reader will win one (1) COUPONIZER coupon organizer

ENTER TO WIN:

Each of the following will earn an entry:

  1. Leave a comment and tell me why you would love to have The Couponizer
