Keeping Kids Clean and Healthy With Dial Soap for Kids and Babies - Review & 3 Winner Giveaway - ends 5/17 US

Being a mother of six wonderful kids, I know the importance of keeping them clean.  Kids can get into all sorts of things, and it can be quite a challenge to keep our little rascals as clean as possible.  Cleanliness is the first step to being healthy.  Fortunately for us, Dial has made some great products that are meant just for babies and kids.

Here's the newest for Dial Baby - Body and Hair Wash.  Its gentle formula was designed in conjunction with pediatric dermatologists to be safe even for your little newborn.  It is tear-free so if some gets into your baby's eyes, it won't hurt.  There are no artificial dyes and you can see by the photo to the right, that Dial Baby Body and Hair Wash is clear.

  • Gentle Formula
  • Tear Free
  • Hypoallergenic
  • No Parabens
  • pH Balanced
  • For Ages 0 to 2
My mother-in-law gave me the best advice when it came to babies - bathe them before you put them to bed and baby will sleep much more soundly.  This was proven correct for me, and now for my daughter as well.  Yes, even though you may think baby is clean, there is always a little something that can irritate baby.  Dial Baby Body and Hair Wash will gently remove all environmental dirt for a head to toe clean.

Once kids get older, there are out and about everywhere.  It is important to keep their hands clean to prevent the spread of disease and sickness.  Since I received a bottle of Dial Kids Foaming Hand Soap, I can't think of a better hand soap for kids to use.  

Dial developed their Kid's Foaming Hand Wash together with pediatric dermatologists to make it just right for kids skin.  It is hypoallergenic, clear with no artificial dyes, paraben free, and pH balanced.  It has a cool watery-melon scent that my kids just love.  It's fun and it smells terrific.  It's a real winner in my home!

Cleanliness is next to Godliness is not only a good motto, but cleanliness does help stop the spread of diseases and sicknesses.  Here are some great instances when you and your kids should wash your hands to help keep you healthy:
  • After using the bathroom
  • After changing a diaper (wash the diaper-wearer's hands, too.)
  • After touching animals or animal waste
  • Before and after preparing or handling food, especially raw meat, poultry or fish
  • Before eating
  • After shaking hands
  • After blowing your nose
  • After coughing or sneezing into your hands
  • Before and after treating wounds or cuts
  • Before and after touching a sick or injured person
  • After handling money
  • After handling garbage
  • Before inserting or removing contact lenses
  • When using public restrooms
  • After using public transportation
  • Upon awakening in the morning

To make sure your children are washing their hands thoroughly, have them sing a little song while they are washing like "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star."  Whey they are done My kids are reliable hand washers since they were little as my husband and I always would praise them when they washed their hands.  Praise does work!

Eco-Chic Colombian Girl Jewelry - Handmade From Organic Sources in Colombia - Review & Giveaway - ends 5/15 US

There are women all over the world who are struggling to survive day after day.  Many of these women do not want to turn to illegal activities to feed themselves and their children.  Some are lucky and find a way of life that will help them to survive and make a fair wage like a group of women who live outside Bogota, Columbia.

On the outskirts of Bogota, Colombia, an ordinary group of women living on the same block experimented with incorporating natural fruit and seeds in jewelry, using simple hand-sewn crochet techniques.  The women were essentially nameless and faceless to the outside world, but their result earned global acclaim, now known as "organic jewelry" or "Eco-chic jewelry," changing the face of women's fashion in Colombia and Europe, and finally making its grand arrival here in the United States, with the inception of "Colombian Girl Jewelry."

The Colombian Girl Jewelry collection is unique from other jewelry as it is made all-natural fruits and seeds, organically sourced, that are found in the Amazon Rainforest of Colombia.  But beyond the jewelry, there are women behind the scenes producing each piece by hand, one seed at a time.

These women are the heart of Colombian Girl Jewelry.  Most of the women are single mothers or young women that grew up without an opportunity for higher education.  They work together, united in their community, specializing their their special craft.  It is more than just a job for these women, it is an artform to ensemble a color palette made from locally collected fruits and seeds.  With the emergence of Colombian Girl Jewelry, these woman are taking their craft to a market outside their overcrowded streets of Bogota; they are introducing their artistry to the world.

Now these Colombian girls wish to introduce American women to a whole new jewelry experience.  At Colombian Girl Jewelry, you'll find jewelry created entirely from fruit and seeds found in the Amazon Rainforest of Colombia by a small group of women artisans, uniting women across geographic and cultural boundaries and enabling them to empower one another in an eco-friendly, sustainable manner.

Each one of the many necklaces, earrings, bracelets, that I have seen at Colombian Girl Jewelry are all little works of art.  They are all so beautiful!  They are made from a variety of fruits and nuts, some hand dyed, then artfully strung together.  A piece of jewelry can be made from orange peel, acai berries, bombona seeds, tagua nuts, dalmatian seeds, cantaloupe seeds, and, of course being in Colombia, coffee beans.

Carolina, who is the founder of Colombia Girl Jewelry, sent me this lovely Amora de Cafe Multicolor necklace and earrings set.  It is so lovely.  This set is comprised of aromatic coffee beans and multi colored dyed cantaloupe seeds all filling four separate entwined string neatly crocheted together.  The trings are linked together by a single tagua nut near the bottom of an adjustable necklace loop.  Even though I am not a coffee drinker, I do enjoy the sweet aroma of the beans that wafts up from this necklace.

The earrings are also made with multiple strands.  They are as light as a feather, and you cannot even tell you are wearing them until you look at the beauty of them in the mirror.

I would never have thought that a mix of coffee beans and dyed cantaloupe seeds could come together to form a beautiful necklace.  The Aroma de Cafe Multicolor Necklace and Earring set is now a treasured set for me.

There are just so many delightful items to choose from at Colombian Girl Jewelry - like the Bosque del Amazonas Choker.

How about the Pura Naranja "Pure Orange" (rainbow) made with multicolor orange rings all with the natural aroma of orange.

Are you looking for a unique gift for Mom?  Look no further than Colombian Girl Jewelry.  Each and every item comes beautifully gift boxed ready to give to Mom on Mother's Day.  All items are shipped to you within 24 hours of receipt Monday - Friday via USPS from Texas.  Your purchase will help women striving to make ends meet for themselves and for their families.

Keep Kids Dry & Safe With Splashy Rainwear from Veranda Outdoors - #Review & #Giveaway - ends 5/15 US/CA

Have you ever worried about your kids staying dry when they have to trudge out in the rain to go to school?  It's important for kids to stay dry as it wards off sickness, but if your kids are like mine, they like to go out in the rain and splash around.  I don't blame them as I still like to do it myself.  What your kids need is some good quality rainwear that will keep them dry and safe, and you can get that online at Veranda Outdoors.

I may live in a dry desert that doesn't get much rain, but my granddaughter lives in New Jersey.  Almost everyday it rains there.  Both myself and her mother share the concern of our little girl keeping dry when it rains.  Veranda Outdoors kindly sent a full rain outfit for her: a Splashy Rain Jacket; Splashy Rain Pants, and pair of their Rain Boots.

Splashy is an exclusive rainwear line made of advanced materials just for children.  These are all quality items that will keep kids dry and safe, including my granddaughter when she heads outside in the rain.  With strong attention to detail and children’s needs, Splashy is perfect for rainy day events of all kinds.

I am so impressed with the quality of this rainwear.  The Splashy Rain Jacket is incredible.  It is lightweight, comfortable, flexible, waterproof, wind-proof and breathable so kids can still have fun playing outside even in a downpour.  It's made from high quality tight-knit Nylon fabric instead of heavy, bulky, stiff and uncomfortable PVC plastic material like older style rainwear.  To keep your kids safe, there is a reflective strip down the sleeves, and you can see from the photo above how it really reflects the light.  People are going to see your kids.

There are vented chest panels to let heat escape so that your kids don't sweat if there is a hot humid rain out.   There is some elastic on the hood to let it form around your child's face, close fitting, to keep the hood on in wind, and keep the rain out.  It snaps up tight and has two front pockets.  This jacket comes in 5 bright fun colors that will make a rainy day bright.

To keep your child as dry as possible, the Splashy Rain Pants will do the job right.  These rain pants are just as lightweight, comfortable, flexible, waterproof, wind-proof and breathable as the Splashy Rain Jacket.  These pants have an elastic waist and elastic cuffed ankles keeps rain, snow and mud from getting inside.  There are front pockets for your kids to stash items in to keep dry, and for that added safety of your children, there is a reflective strip down down each leg for safety.

For full rain protection, your child will also need a pair of Veranda Outdoors Children's Rain Boots.  Little puddle splashers need a great pair of boots that will keep their feet dry.  They come in 7 bright colors and 8 fun patterns, but what I am most impressed about these boots are the soles.  The treads on the soles really grip wet surfaces (yes, I went out, wet the concrete, and checked them out).  While your child is out puddle jumping and splashing over the rain slick sidewalks and grass, be assured, your children won't slip and fall in these boots.

There are so many color combinations you can make with this quality rainwear from Veranda Outdoors.  The sizes for the rainwear range from 2T to size 10, and the rain boots come in Toddler Sizes: 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and Youth Sizes 11, 12, 13, 1, 2, 3.  Don't let a little rain stop the kids from having some fun outside. Rain, wind, snow and mud have met their match with Splashy Rainwear!

Veranda Outdoors is the home of SnowStoppers Gloves and Mittens - which are fabulous (see my SnowStoppers review), but now home to Splashy Rainwear.  They have a great team and aim to grow their business more and more by offering their customers the best outdoor products available.  Veranda Outdoors also carries Swim and Sun Protection for the whole family.

Giveaway!  With many thanks to Veranda Outdoors, one person is going to win a complete rainwear outfit like what I reviewed!  Winner will receive one Splashy Rain Jacket, one Splashy Rain Pants, and a pair of Rain Boots in winner's choice of color and size (depending upon availability), a $53 value!  This giveaway will end on May 15, 2015, and is open to US and Canadian residents 18+ only.

#Review - Black Canyon Body Lotion Vanilla Delight Scent

Since I live in a dry desert, keeping my skin moisturized is a full time job.  I can't tell you how many different body lotions we have tried over the years.  To be truthful, most have been losers, but we have found quite a few winners.

Here's one that I do like!  It's from Black Canyon.  It really soothes and softens my dry skin.  This medium body lotion goes on smooth, absorbs quickly, and leaves your skin feeling pampered.  It does not leave your skin feeling oily or greasy.  I love putting this on at night before bedtime then waking with such soft skin.

The vanilla delight scent has a hint of brown sugar to it.  It's a lovely light scent that is not too heavy.  It's just perfect!  There have been so many lotions that I end up showering off at night because it's basically all fragrance and bothers my sinus allergies.  I am not allergic to this lotion at all!

The biggest plus to this lotion is that the ingredients include aloe vera and vitamin E.  I have found that this is the best combination to combat the dry desert air to hydrate my skin.

Buy:  You can purchase Black Canyon Vanilla Delight Body Lotion at Amazon for only $10.00.
