Giveaway for Sue Berk Baby Set! ends 3/15

                                   Babies are gifts from God and Sue Berk knows this.
Sue has designed a truly unique and beautiful collection of rompers and baby gowns for your littlest Angel she calls them Onesie and Gowns with Bling I call them Angelwear. Sues designs have religious sentiments blinged out with stylish rhinestones.They come in  pink, black and white and you can choose either a romper 0-6mos and 6-12 mos or a infant gown 0- 3mos.

I picked a black Onesie that said Wonderfully Made- Psalm 139:14, when it arrived I was very happy with the quality and beauty of this garment. Sometimes as nice as the pictures can be seeing them in person is the only way to know exactly how nice something really is. I love the softness and durable thickness of the cotton. This is a garment that will last a while and has the ability to be used for all your babies and is so beautiful that you will want it for a keepsake and a beautiful memory of your baby days.

Sue also has a beautiful line of blankets and blankies to pamper and comfort your baby in style.

Zevia All Natural Soda review/giveaway ends 3/18

Zevia  All Natural Soda review & Giveaway!
By Julie @Emptynester Reviews and Giveaways
All opinions are clearly my own and not of any of my promoting team.
I was not coerced into saying anything false. I am not receiving  monetary compensation of any sort for this review.

I received a 6 pk of asst flavors to review for Zevia the All Natural Soda! I have heard alot about the new stevia plant sensation, so I was excited to give it a try, It wasn't near as sweet of a soda, as I am use to, but that isn't a bad thing.
( I can't drink Diet sodas due to the Phenylalanine that is used as the artificial sweetener. My stomach was having alot of issues so I went to Gastro Dr. they told me to stop drinking the Diet soda...and WALLA! No more tummy troubles.)
The Zavia gave me alot of choices of flavors and the Black Cherry is definitely my favorite! I loved that they had caffeinated and un caffeinated as I do not drink coffee so my soda is MY CAFFEINE!!
It was thirst quenching and a definite treat to drink.
I am so happy to be able to give Zevia to my grandson and not feel bad that he is drinking pure sugar!


Why do we do what we do?

The Z team is made up of soda-loving people. We grew up drinking classic soda flavors, and turned away from them for health reasons. So making naturally delicious, healthy versions of the familiar favorites we grew up with, without sugar, is our top priority. We make soda the way it should always have been.
For me, the Zevia story started with my conversion from a “sugar junkie” to a stevia fan. About 11 years ago, I quit sugar cold turkey in an effort to upgrade my health. I thought I was a health-conscious person – I exercised frequently, consumed meat in moderation, and consumed natural and organic products whenever possible. But when I really looked at my diet, I found I was consuming up to 250 grams of sugar per day, between protein shakes, energy bars, juice-based spritzers and other foods and beverages. That’s about 1,000 calories a day, just from sugars.
My wife and I decided we needed to make a change. We began using stevia as a sweetener, and to this day, my family uses only stevia in our household. Stevia has given us an alternative without negative side effects, and has kept us from feeling deprived in our sugar-free lifestyle. It’s had a tremendous impact on how we feel every day, and I’m confident it’s benefitting our long-term health.
About Stevia

What is stevia?

It's always a truism that the best things in nature have been used by somebody around the world for centuries, even millennia; they just needed re-discovering by the wider world. This couldn't be more true of stevia. Stevia is a small shrub that is a member of Asteraceae family of plants, more commonly referred to as the "sunflower family." The scientific name for stevia is stevia rebaudiana.
The native peoples of Paraguay have known about the stevia plant for centuries and have employed it to sweeten their beverages for many generations. They have valued its incredible sweetness for a long time. The rest of the world only really "discovered" stevia at the end of the 19th century, through the efforts of the Swiss Dr. Moises Santiago Bertoni, from the University of Ascuncion, who in 1899 received a sample of stevia leaf from a colleague. He named it Stevia Rebaudiana, after the Paraguayan chemist Rebaudi, who later became the first person to isolate the naturally sweet compounds contained therein.

Knot Genie "The No More Hair Pullin Out w/ Hair Brushing, Brush! Review & Giveaway ends 3/18

Knot Genie Review/Giveaway
this review is done By Emptynester Reviews and Giveaways.
I was not coerced in anyway to provide a positive review
 or in exchange for any monetary reimbursement .
My Review:  I took the Knot Genie over to my God Child Kelli Jo's house, asking if I could brush her hair.(she has long blond ringlets I just love!) She had been outside playing with her brother so she pulled off her stocking hat and said, "sure." The Knot Genie was awesome! It glided right through her hair, when it would catch a little, it would release right away, gliding through the rest. After about 3 strokes per area, it was snarl free, her ringlets were cute as a button! She was so happy that it didn't dig at her head or pull her hair out, as was I!  I would have felt bad if I would have hurt her. 
This brushes teeth are staggered, and bend easily so they don't catch in a snarl and hold on tight until you pull it loose, taking hair roots with it. I love it and so does Kelli Jo and her mommy!
Kelli Jo had to try it on my hair also, and her mom's, we were all impressed/amazed at the ease and pain free hair brushing session we got!
  I definitely recommend Knot Genie to all ages!
P.S. My mom had my hair cut short when I was a child for not standing still and whining when she brushed my hair, I don't think it was my fault though, she pulled hard!!

Magically gets rid of knots. Not to mention complaining.
The Knot Genie™ Detangling Brush was created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted.

The MoH Band, USB Wristband - Great for Students Review & Giveaway

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Mom Blog Society
Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers

My Review: This is a must have gadget for every household, for kids-adults. Everyone needs USB storage these days for school work, picture/media storage, just backed up files off your hard drive of your PC/Laptop. Both my children, have carried the small USB thumb drives for years and constantly are searching in the bottom of their book bags for them and constantly losing them. They are never easily handy when they need them. You know the ones, keychain style that are small and black in color. MoH has come up with the solution! Numerous colored bracelet type USB storage you can wear on your wrist, clip around a belt loop, or even a strap on your purse or book bag. They have a nice tight closure that will not just open up and fall off, a major PLUS! They come in 2 or 4gb sizes depending on your needs you can choose from so many different styles and colors its fun! Everywhere you look these days people are wearing the rubberized wristbands for all different causes they support,these are just like them only cuter and functional! I absolutely love the one I got in the Milkyway colors as shown above in the blue,pink and black. It is brightly colored to not get lost easily and ready when I need to take it to get pictures printed at WalMart. I just ordered 2 more for each of my children to use, they always need new ones as they lose them, not I can be rest assured that they will be safely, securely, off to their endeavors with an MoH Band!

My daughter is in the RN nursing Program in a local college and my son is a junior in High School and they both use USB's on a regular basis. 

My son's school went all Macbooks 2 yrs ago. Everything they do is off the laptop the school provides, papers, projects as well as homework. He uses his as back up for EVERYTHING! 

You never know when you might drop that laptop and be out of luck for school the next day.

Overall rating from me= 5 STARS!! 


The story behind the MoHBand™

The MoH Band™ was first conceived as a classroom project at Babson College in 2010. Andrew Kitzenberg, the founder of Memory on Hand, had lost numerous flash drives during his time at Babson.  Regularly using them to backup papers and projects, there was usually a minor meltdown when one was lost. Realizing that many other students were having this same problem, Andrew conceived a new USB wristband that would be a fitting product solution. It was easy to keep track of and allowed him to always carry his important files on him. After playing around with the idea and testing designs Andrew saw the benefits of the MoH Band™ firsthand as he wore the initial prototype.  At semester's end Andrew had completed delivery on his first sale and decided to pursue the business after graduating. Since graduating in May of 2010, Andrew partnered up with friend and classmate Jeff Brayer and together they have brought the MoH Band™ to students all over the country.

Memory on Hand donates 10% of profits to Scholarship America CHARITY to support educating America's youth!
