    NewAir AH-470 Flat Panel Micathermic Space Heater Review

    I received a NewAir AH-470 Space Heater for the purpose of this review. This post was made possible by Mom Spark Media. Thoughts are my own.

    I don't know about you but winter has REALLY set in here in Pennsylvania. We have already had temperatures n the single digits and it gets COLD! I am always telling the kids to put on a blanket rather then turning the heat up, heat is expensive and coming upon the Holiday season, I am sure nobody is looking for extra expenses. When there is a chill in the house We have a space heater we would turn on just to warm it up a bit but It was loud and bulky so it was not used often. This year we have found the NewAir AH-470 Flat Panel Micathermic Space Heater, It is amazing! Let me tell you all about it!

    I am sure you are asking yourself "What in the world is a Flat Panel Micathermic Space heater?" Believe me, I had the SAME question! What exactly is Micathermic?  It is basically the heating element inside the heater that gives off heat into the air much faster then traditional oil filled radiator heaters. The very best part is it is SO quiet. The flat panel design make this heater very light weight and portable. It features both convection and radiant heating for both comfort & convenience.

    Out of the box the NewAir AH-470 heater was very easy to assemble with only the wheels needing to be snapped on. No serious assembly required. It came with very simple to understand instructions with some do's, don'ts and cautions that seemed to cover all the important points.

    This thin and slim heater is packed with features so do not let the slim design fool you. They did not skimp on features. It comes with a remote control for when you have just got warm & cozy and do not want to get up. Truthfully that is probably my favorite feature. It has a nice bright LED display that s easy to read even from afar. An adjustable thermostat allows you to adjust the temperature between 41 degrees up to 97 degrees.

    My next favorite is they take safety seriously. It has a safety trip over switch so if the heater does tip, it will automatically turn the power off. It also features an overheat protection   mechanism that switches it off automatically if it over-heats. These features allow me to let my mind rest just a bit.

    Now let's sum up all the features. It heats quickly & quietly, thin & slim portable deisgn, built in safety features, easy to read display and remote control. I mean what more can you ask for in a heater? I am actually planning on getting another one for use upstairs and then we will no longer dread that chill.

    Take a look how easy to use & quiet it is..

    You can buy the NewAir AH-470 Flat Panel Micathermic Space Heater on their website, here

    You can also connect with them on Facebook, here

    Go ahead on over to their page and let me know what product you would choose from them if possible. Let me know in the comments.

    Mary J Blige: The London Sessions

    I participated in the Mary J Blige The London Sessions album review program as a member of One2One Network. I was provided a free album to review but all opinions are my own.  

    Now a days there is so much "music" that should not even be considered music. There are only a few artists left that we can always depend on to drop a new album and the entire thing be great. One artist that I always anticipate their upcoming album is Mary J. Blige and its been for years. She never lets me down. Her music is so full of heart and soul.

    The London Sessions is the newest album from her and was released TODAY, December 2nd on Capitol Records. I was lucky enough to get a sneak peak, or sneak listen I should say. Promise you will not be disappointed. I know I was not. The London Sessions is her very best yet. It is very different than her past albums, It has a real fun twist on it. A lot of dance tracks that it is literally impossible to stay in your seat and refrain from dancing. ;) I already have a favorite song from the new album.

    When You're Gone 
    This is that perfect love song. I am a sap and always looking for love songs with the perfect lyrics to relate. This is that song, for me anyways.

     ♪ When you’re gone, I miss you like I did when we were first together. No one in this world could ever hold me better. Just tell me when you’re coming home. When you’re gone, I miss you like you took a piece of me with ya; didn't think I cared that much did ya? Just tell me when you’re coming home. ♪

     Mary J. Blige ventured into new musical territory for The London Sessions by crossing the Atlantic and collaborating with some of the decade’s most celebrated UK musical talent including Disclosure, Eg White, Emile Sandé, Jimmy Napes, Naughty Boy, SAM ROMANS and Sam Smith. Mary J. Blige has always had a way of combining hip hop with soul to make the sound she has always been known for and loved for. Check out the Official Mary J. Blige webpage, Here.

    Here is a list of the tracks on The London Sessions-

    1. Therapy
    2. Doubt
    3. Not Loving You
    4. When You're Gone
    5. Right Now
    6. My Loving
    7.Long Hard Look
    8. Whole Damn Year
    9 .Nobody But You
    10. Pick Me Up
    11. Follow
    12. Worth My Time

    You can get the album on Itunes, Here
    Or on Amazon, Here

    Who else is a HUGE Mary J. fan like myself? Have you heard The London Session yet?

    Pampers News for Newborns Review & Giveaway!

    This review was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Pampers. I was provided product free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% mine

    The anticipation of a welcoming a brand new baby is a bundle of emotions for any parent. From the moment you find out you are expecting to labor and delivery. No new Mommy knows everything and expects everything that is to come. It can be joyful but stressful at the same time. You want to do everything just right and know all the answers but sometimes you just need some help. 

    I remember changing that first poop diaper in the hospital and going into a complete panic because it was not what I expected. Luckily my nurse was beyond helpful and assured me everything was okay and normal. Honestly thinking back most of my questions for months involved "poop". Funny as it is that is my youngest daughter's nickname, Poopie. It seemed it was ALL she ever did. 

    Then you go home.. and there is no nurse.. Now what? I know I used Google quite frequently but now thanks to Pampers Stool Color card you can take the guesswork out of those out of the normal poopy diapers. I WISH this was something I could of had with my little ones. So much time could have been saved. Now the hospital will provide you with your own Pampers Stool Color card & Diaper Rash Info-graphic. 

    Best part is both are available in both English & Spanish for all new mothers. I think this is such an awesome resource for any and all new parents to know when you have a normal diaper or when you may need to call the doctor. See more at the Pampers webpage. Connect with them on social media for updates and sweepstakes, Facebook or Twitter.

    Protecting your little one from diaper rash is easier with information provided by Pampers.  Enter the Mommy Memory Match sweepstakes on and you could win incredible prizes! Grand prize winner will get six months of FREE diapers and wipes! You’ll also have a daily chance to play the Mommy Memory Match game and win one month of free diapers and wipes or a Pampers t-shirt INSTANTLY!  Sweepstakes runs from now until January 31, 2015 .

    I was compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card. Any opinions are 100% my own. 

    It's my favorite time of year again, Christmas! I just love everything about it, volunteering,gift giving, the shopping, Christmas music, Santa visits, SALES and even the crazy traffic during holiday season. Over the years Christmas has changed in our home, when the kids were younger it was 
    simple. They all wanted affordable toys and were so easy to shop for. The kids are getting older and now they are wanting all these fancy electronics because of course Santa is "making" them, so who needs a budget?! Last year we came to a brilliant conclusion and decided to implement "the family gift". In our family we all decide on ONE gift that is usually a bit pricey but it is the "BIG" gift and it must be something we call enjoy together and give us added family time. Less of the big gift buying and added family time, it doesn't get much better!

    This year we have our eye on the LG OLED at Best Buy, we are way overdue to upgrade our TV and it serves many purposes. We do a lot of movie night, video game tournaments and just cuddling up together to watch our favorites TV series. I'm sure many of you are wondering what the heck is a LG OLED.

    Just imagine for a moment, your favorite movie or even home videos full of special moments brought to you with such amazing picture quality. Your first home. A baby's first steps. That vacation you don't ever want to forget. Some things in life defy all explanation and must be experienced to be believed. Such is the case with LG's latest display technology. With deeper and richer colors, stunning contrast and ingeniously curved screens, it is unlike any technology you've ever seen, and it delivers a picture that exceeds your wildest imagination. Trust me, I seen it with my own eyes.

    LG 55EC9300 SKU# 7846019 – OLED TV at Best Buy now.

    Soothie Suckers Review + giveaway! :)

    I am back again to bring you yet another product that has caught my eye, and my heart! Ready for the rundown on Soothie Suckers, everything you need to know in one spot!

    What is Soothie Suckers you ask? Soothie Suckers are the only all-natural herbal ice pops that were created by a concerned mother herself. As a mother I LOVE products that are created by fellow mothers because they can really relate to what is important to us as a moms. She realized herbal remedies were an effective way to keep her family healthy and figured why shouldn't everyone have an herbal remedy to turn to care for their families naturally. Soothie suckers are a fun & tasty healthy alternative.

    Soothie Suckers come in two formulations, an orange flavor for Immune Support and a grape flavor for Nasal Support. My kids thought both flavors were very yummy! No complaints on either. What kid doesn't love ice pops? Actually they can be frozen OR consumed as a liquid. They do come in pre-measured in 1 oz. pouches so they are great for on the go. Soothie Suckers have no artificial flavors, no high fructose corn syrup and no alcohol. They were created by kids but I must admit as a grown up I tried them and loved them too!

    Did you know over 70 million US children suffer from 10-12 colds a year! I don't know about you but I will be adding Soothie Suckers into my cold regime. I would prefer to give my kids something all natural then pump them full of medicine.

    Old Factory Candles Giveaway!

    I have received compensation in exchange for reviewing this product. Although this post is sponsored, all opinions are my own. Powered by BrandBacker.

    There is a few things in life I could not life without, Candles being one of them. I am constantly pursuing my next favorite scent. In the same sense though I am super picky about my candles,not just any candle will do.

    My most recent treasure in the candle world is Old Factory Candles. I LOVE them. They are hand poured in the United States with natural soy wax. They come in gift sets which includes 3 different scented 2 ounce candles, best part, each set is themed around a group of related scents. I got Fall Harvest: Pumpkin Spice, Cranberry, Autumn Leaves. They are very true to the scents and do not have a weak scent. You can burn them alone or burn them together.

    With all the scent themes there MUST be something for everyone!

    The packaging is just perfect! It gives them the "old fashion" feel.

    I absolutely love the attention to detail on the design of the packaging and labels

    The candles have self trimming cotton wicks. They burn clean and even for up to 20 hours. One of my HUGE pet peeves with candles are when they burn uneven and you have the HUGE pits but its like the rest of the wax is wasted. 

    So to sum it up the ONLY thing I could possibly think of as a negative thing about the Old Factory Candles is they are only 2 ounces and I LOVE them and wish I could get them in a larger size. That is kinda a positive inside a negative though?!

    Old Factory Candles are exclusive to Amazon. With the holidays right around the corner Old Factory Candles would make a great gift for anyone! Who doesn't love a great candle?

    What set would you choose? Take a look here & get your orders if for easy gift giving, gift wrapping is available as well! 

    Wanna win your very own Old Factory Candles set? Keep it for yourself or save it for a gift!  Enter below! Contest winners must have an account, a PayPal account (for shipping reimbursements) and live in America in order to claim their prize.

    GIVEAWAY! 3 Winners! Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango Body Wash is here..

    Disclosure: I received Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango Body Wash in exchange for a product review. However, all the opinions expressed here are my own.

    Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango Body Wash

    Meet Dial's newest addition to their Coconut Water family of body wash, Refreshing Mango! It contains coconut water and mango, both are known to be great for your skin. Enriched with the goodness of anti-oxidants and cytokinin, which have age-defying properties, coconut water is very beneficial in warding off premature wrinkles and keeps your skin younger-looking for a very long time. Coconut water also whitens your skin, clears acne scars, tones, and moisturizes. Then we mix in the mango, they are great for your skin as they have the ability to reduce dark spots, blemishes and acne, thus imparting a natural glow to your skin. Vitamin A and Beta carotene in this fruit restore, rejuvenate and revive your skin with vigor as well as add shine to your skin. So mixing the two together in a product for your skin was an AWESOME idea, Dial

    We put this body wash to the ultimate test since it is a unisex scent I had the entire family try it out and report back to me. The results are in, we all thought the scent out of the bottle was very pleasant but not too overwhelming. ( note: I am not a mango fan but thought the smell was enjoyable.) The body wash is a clear color which is a plus, no added colors. The texture was thick but smooth to apply. We all did notice our skin was much softer after the shower, mine especially, it is normally noticeably dry. It left a very faint scent after use, me personally would enjoy more of a stronger scent but for men its just right.

    Most importantly, for me anyways, is it lathered just right! I don't know about you but I have tried TONS of body washes, I am a big of an addict if you ask me. There has been many sad moments when everything seems JUST right and then you go to lather and... a weak lather. Its heart breaking because that is most important  in my eyes. The lather has to be right or I just do not feel "fresh".

    If there was a report card for body washes Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango Body Wash would have a big A+. :) Now, its gets better, I bring to you another giveaway! A free coupon to try out your very own bottle. There will be THREE winners, So good luck to all!

    Veggie Tales: Celery Night Fever Review & *GIVEAWAY*

    Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post. However, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

    They are back at it AGAIN! Veggie Tales has brought to us their newest hit, Celery Night Fever. Just newly released on August 5th. We are already pretty big Veggie Tales fans so when the kids seen what movie was planned for our weekly movie night they squealed with delight! It could not have been any better timing because everyone was sick so a feel good movie was exactly what we needed. 

    (Please don't mind the ice cream face, haha)

    If you are not familiar with the Veggie Tales series, they all have a life lesson mixed within the music, giggles & fun characters. Celery Night Fever was based on forgiveness. The real life situations easily relate to my children even though they vary in age. This movie focuses on forgiveness among close friends, best friends in fact. Taught through out this DVD is how to forgive and that God has forgiven us all, no matter how "unforgivable" it may have been. I think that friendship and forgiveness is a life lesson we can all use some brushing up on, young and old.

    My daughter's favorite thing about the Veggie Tales series is the music. Celery Night Fever really brought the music that brings you to your feet. There is 6 new fun songs that everyone is sure to love. The music was disco style tunes, hence the name! :) Honestly I could barely refrain from busting a few moves myself, John Travolta style. Ha! 

    Celery Night Fever is about 45 minutes long, which is a great length to capture and keep a toddler's attention. My favorite feature was a silly song with Larry, Perfect Puppy, that I will be singing all week. Behind the scenes with Terry Crews, downloadable activities, sing along, and English and Spanish subtitles are some more features you can except.

    All in all Celery Night Fever is a perfect DVD for your next play date, sleepover or even family movie night. 

    Who wants a fun giveaway? Enter for your very own copy of Veggie Tales: Celery Night Fever. US & Canada only. Good luck!
