Earth Mama Angel Baby Review & #Giveaway

Thank you to Earth Mama Angel Baby for this amazing giveaway!

earth mama angel baby

As a mama, I focus a lot of my time on making sure that the products I use on, with or for our children are safe, non toxic and contain only the best ingredients. Reading product labels can be a daunting (not to mention extremely time-consuming!) task especially when it comes to bath and beauty products. I use the EWG database, Skin Deep,  (my “go- to” reference) when I am contemplating a new product but for a busy mama, it is much easier to stick with products that I know work, am sure are safe and healthy for the littles. One such line is Earth Mama, Angel Baby. I love all of their all natural products not only for the things they contain, but all the things they don’t! I first heard about EMAB from my “lil” sister, during my first pregnancy she gave me Earth Mama’s Organic Morning Wellness Tea to help me through my tough “all day” sickness. It certainly helped me get out of bed and I have not tried a product of theirs that I have not found to do what it says it will do, from the EMAB organic teas I drank to ease my queasy morning sickness belly to the yummy smelling Orange Vanilla shampoo and body wash that I use on all three children. I even packed EMAB products in my hospital bag so that I could use only the best on baby girl from the beginning. ( I have started to use their products full-time as well and have received many compliments on the “scent” I am wearing!)

Canyon Bakehouse Gluten-free Breads Review & Giveaway, 2 winners!

We are not a gluten-free family but we do cut out gluten when possible. Gluten free products come in all sorts of varieties, but it has been hard to find tasty bread until we tried Canyon Bakehouse. Canyon Bakehouse breads are absolutely delicious. My children have even asked for the cinnamon raisin bread as an afternoon snack, it’s that good. My favorite is the 7 Grain. Canyon Bakehouse keeps all the yumminess you love about bread but without the gluten. Perfect for those that need to avoid gluten or like us, just knowing that cutting out gluten (even a little) can impact the way you feel in a positive way.

Canyon Bakehouse breads are made with 100% whole grains and only clean ingredients, so you can feel good about loving bread again! Their products include 7-Grain, Cinnamon Raisin, Mountain White, Deli Rye Style, Rosemary & Thyme Focaccia, Hamburger Buns, Hot Dog Buns and Cranberry Crunch Muffins. Oh, and the breads also happen to be gluten free – an added benefit for families with a range of dietary needs, or anyone looking to transition to a gluten free lifestyle. The best part? They taste and feel like ‘real’ bread! We doubt anyone will even notice they’re missing one ingredient – gluten. Here are some other features:

  • Certified Gluten Free
  • Made in a dedicated gluten free bakery
  • Dairy, nut & soy free
  • GMO-free
  • Family-owned, located in Loveland, Colo.
I can’t wait to try the Foccia Stuffing recipe listed on their website (See their gluten free, yummy recipes HERE ).
You can purchase Canyon Bakehouse breads by clicking here (you’ll find a coupon there!) or to find a store, CLICK HERE
Reminder: bread keeps fresh for a few days, but keep in freezer to preserve freshness NOT fridge as it will dry it out !
TWO Lucky Winners will win a box of breads to see for themselves just how yummy Canyon Bakehouse breads really are!

Life is Good Coffee Review & Giveaway (2 winners!)

One of the only things I missed while I was pregnant was my afternoon coffee. I know most people enjoy it first thing in the morning, hot and energizing. I do like coffee in the morning but I am so busy that by the time I drink it, it is cold and tasteless. I have gotten in the habit of brewing a small pot at around 3:00, I sip it slowly and enjoy the warmth, it is something I have started looking forward to. Life is good® sent me a few varieties of their coffee to try and I am hooked. The flavor is robust, without being too overwhelming and I like that Life is good® supports its farmers as well as  sustainable farming.  Although, I don’t like flavored coffee, they offer some yummy sounding choices like 2 unique flavors: S’more to Love™, a s’more flavored ground coffee, and Banana Bread Bliss™, a banana bread flavored ground coffee. There’s just nothing like the smell of fresh, home brewed coffee. Enjoying it at home not only gives me a chance to relax and enjoy it (not on the go!) but it saves on waste (no disposable here!) as well as time and money!

About  Life is good®:

  • 3  smooth roasts: Light Hearted™, a light roast ground coffee; Happy Medium™, a medium roast ground coffee; Dark & Daring™, a dark roast ground coffee.
  • 2 flavored varieties: S’more to Love and Banana Bread Bliss 
  • All products are UTZ Certified, a program promoting sustainable farming and better opportunities for farmers, their families and our planet.
  • Sales from the coffee line will go toward the brand’s ten percent for kids in need initiative. Life is good donates 10% of its net profits to the Life is good Kids Foundation.

You can purchase Life is good® at major supermarkets, or click here.
Two lucky winners will win a variety of coffee to brew, sit back and enjoy. Enter via rafflecopter below: 

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Life is good® encourages you to slow down and bring back the coffee break – a  simple 15-minute time-out to sip slowly, reconnect and reflect on what happiness means to you!

Munchkin introduces, Mbaby, new line of Baby Clothing

Munchkin has launched a new line of children’s clothing, Mbaby and it is filled with adorable classics.

mbaby

When looking for children’s clothing I want it to be affordable, adorable but most of all comfortable for my little one. I also make sure that the fabrics are durable, and will uphold to the many washings they are bound for. Munchkin’s new line, Mbaby checked all my boxes.
Teeny tiny Bee has been wearing the organic button down, long-sleeve onesie and we love it. I love not having to pull something over her head. The cotton is soft and I love having the choice of organic clothing, knowing that it is safer and cleaner for all. (There are four basics available in organic cotton.)
organic pieces mbaby,munchkin

We also tried out the striped cardigan (love that it is reversible) and the striped kicky pants that feature a two-in one foot. They can either be worn folded over to expose the feet or turned under like little booties. Perfect for different temperatures, as well as increasing the longevity of  pants (when they get a little too short, just fold up and wear with socks!)

Mbaby apparel is classic and sweet with plenty of basics to complete baby’s layette. Two pieces are truly innovative: the Onester and Sleepster featuring a double layer front to keep baby cozy and snug warm without overheating them.

mbaby munchkin baby clothing

The line is offered in size 1 month through size 12 months. I would say the line runs a bit slim, true to size for a slim baby. (you might want to go up a size for a fuller baby.)

Aden + Anais: Hayden’s Heart Swaddles

 My favorite baby item has to be the multi-purpose, and versatile muslin swaddle blanket by aden+anais. Introduced to me by my younger sister, I instantly feel in love with the soft, lightweight, easy to wash, swaddle blankets.  Just in time for Valentine’s Day, aden + anais introduced their newest swaddle, The Hayden’s Heart swaddles. The Hayden’s Heart swaddles benefit the Hayden’s Heart foundation, a not-for-profit that brings awareness to and honors all children fighting Congenital Heart Disease, the leading cause of infant deaths in the US.  Congenital Heart Disease Awareness Week is February 7th through the 14th.
aden+anais, swaddle, congenital heart disease awareness week 

The aden +anais’ “Hayden’s Heart” swaddle blanket is inspired by Hayden Dorset, a young boy who lost his battle with Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) but touched the lives of many long after his time here on earth. On March 12, 2012, Hayden was born with a very rare birth defect called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. Much of Hayden’s time on earth was spent in and out of the hospital and after just 5 months with his family, Hayden unfortunately passed away.

The Hayden’s Heart swaddle was inspired by Hayden after his mother, Ady, wrote Raegan Moya-Jones, CEO of aden + anais and mother of four herself, a beautiful letter sharing their story. Whether it was nap time or bedtime, Hayden couldn’t fall asleep without the comfort of his aden + anais muslin swaddles.  Raegan was so touched by the letter, she knew she had to do something to honor his memory.

Congenital Heart Disease is the #1 cause of birth defect-related deaths, and the leading cause of all infant deaths in the US.
The collection will benefit Hayden’s Heart, a not-for-profit whose mission is to raise awareness for CHD and help families affected by CHD with the burden of medical and travel expenses.

Congenital Heart Disease Awareness Week, February 7 – 14th

The aden + anais Hayden’s Heart Swaddle retails for $19.95 and come in Pink, Taupe, Green and Blue and can be purchased at www.adenandanais.com.  For more information on Hayden Dorset, his family and Hayden’s Heart, please visit www.haydensheart.org.

FANS GET IN ON THE ACT:

ALL-NEW SING-ALONG VERSION OF DISNEY’S “FROZEN” HITS THEATERS NATIONWIDE JAN. 31, 2014

 

Moviegoer Response to Film’s Original Songs Triggers Sing-Along Experience in More Than 1000 Theaters

“‘Frozen’ fans have embraced the film’s original songs and its soundtrack with such passion—there are countless YouTube videos from people singing songs like ‘Let It Go’—we decided to create a version that would celebrate that enthusiasm,” said Dave Hollis, executive vice president, theatrical distribution, The Walt Disney Studios. “It’s a great opportunity for families to get together and have some fun with these songs.”

According to Hollis, on-screen lyrics and a magical bouncing snowflake will accompany select showings; moviegoers can check local listings for showtimes and theaters. The duration of the sing-along run will vary by theater.

Disney’s “Frozen” received two Oscar® nominations, including best animated feature and best original song (“Let It Go”). Named best animated film by more than a dozen critics associations, the film won a Golden Globe® for best animated feature, two Critics Choice Movie Awards, including best animated feature and best song (“Let It Go”), and a Producers Guild of America Award for outstanding animated feature.

In wide release since November 27, the film posted the No. 1 all-time Thanksgiving debut and the largest opening ever for a Walt Disney Animation Studios film. “Frozen,” WDAS’ 53rd feature film, has earned more than $773 million worldwide, including $337` million domestically. The film’s soundtrack was No. 1 in the Billboard top 200 for two straight weeks.

On Digital HD & 3D Feb. 25 and Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD & On-Demand March 18, the in-home version of “Frozen” promises continued family fun with a blizzard of never-before-seen bonus extras to complement the film’s gorgeous animation, memorable characters and unforgettable music.

ABOUT THE MOVIE

Walt Disney Animation Studios, the studio behind “Tangled” and “Wreck-It Ralph,” presents “Frozen,” a stunning big-screen comedy adventure. Fearless optimist Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) sets off on an epic journey—teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff) and his loyal reindeer Sven—to find her sister Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf (voice of Josh Gad), Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom. The film is directed by Chris Buck (“Tarzan,” “Surf’s Up”) and Jennifer Lee (screenwriter, “Wreck-It Ralph”), who also wrote the screenplay. It is produced by Peter Del Vecho (“Winnie the Pooh,” “The Princess and the Frog”). Featuring original songs from Kristen Anderson-Lopez (“In Transit,” “Winnie the Pooh”) and Tony® winner Robert Lopez (“The Book of Mormon,” “Avenue Q”), and an original score by Christophe Beck (“The Muppets,” Oscar®-winning short “Paperman”), “Frozen” opened in theaters nationwide on Nov. 27, 2013. Accompanying “Frozen” is Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Get A Horse!” With Walt Disney himself as the voice of Mickey Mouse, the all-new short features Mickey, his favorite gal pal Minnie Mouse and their friends Horace Horsecollar and Clarabelle Cow as they delight in a musical haywagon ride.

Hullabalu-Introduces New Storybook App, Pan: Chasing the Keeper

Hullabalu, the NYC based company has introduced a new storybook app, Pandora. Hullabalu creates inventive, interesting and engaging storybooks that will capture your little one’s attention and tug on their heart-strings.

Suzanne Xie has created Pandora,  #1 children’s storybook app on iTunes in 15 countries (beating the Disney, Nickleodeon and Sesame Street books). Currently there are two books in the series, Pan: Pan the Fearless Beribolt and Pan: Chasing the Keeper.  These books follow Pandora,  a female lead heroine in the form of a little purple panda who is on the search for her parents. Pan isn’t perfect. She makes mistakes, sometimes really silly ones, and learns from them. All the trouble Pan causes makes her a stronger character in the end. Stories and parables have been used for centuries to entertain and educate both kids and adults alike, and Pan is here to remind us that learning is a life-long process best experienced through action, trial, and error.

The interactive epic adventures have been dubbed the “Harry Potter of IBooks” for many reasons.  When Suzanne set out to create the Pan series she noticed how tech was changing and asked herself how could she  bring stories to kids that will engage them even more and reflect this change in society? There are fewer stories that inspire girls and boys to be leaders and take adventures so Suzanne made that philosophy an integral part of our creation process.   Suzanne also noticed that in most epic stories the protagonist is almost always male. Suzanne’s hope is that her stories will make female heroes a more natural narrative, which will hopefully make an impact for the next generation of women.

The Pan books are not like most kids’ stories. The Hullabalu approach to stories is heavily informed by a series of leadership traits that are crucial to success at any age. Among them are: courage, perseverance and integrity.  Suzanne, an immigrant from China who spent the first 4 years of her life searching for her parents, learned at a young age the meaning of the American dream. Her parents, through a combination of hard work, humor and luck achieved it. Now she’s on a quest to translate these same values into a fun, clever and heart-felt mobile adventure aimed at kids aged 3-7. Her adventures are created to inspire kids to reach for success and do it with integrity. Achievement in her story is necessary for survival.

CLICK HERE to connect to itunes and download the adorable stories featuring Pandora now. Recommended for ages 4+, and available for both iPad and iPhone.

A bit about Hullabalu:

Hullabalu is a company based in NYC, creating stories for the new generation. We are inspired by our love for fantastical worlds, the timeless classics we grew up with, and the kids who visit our office.
Pan: The Fearless Beribolt is the first story app in the Pan adventure series. We hope you have as much fun with Pan on her adventures as we did making it!
