Double R Nutrition review and giveaway

Double R nutrition sent me BuRRn and GRRow to try. I tried them each for one month.
It is hard to determine results in just 30 days of any product. I am very familiar with Garcinia as I have written about this specific ingredient before. It reduces inflammation within the body which can release fat stores within the body. I am not sure what percentage this product has, but for it to be effective it needs to be minimum 50% HCAA – preferably closer to 60%
 I didn’t notice a huge weight loss, but I did feel better while on the supplement. The redness in my face lessened (indicating inflammation in the body), and I had more energy. Since I was taking both at the same time it is hard to determine which formula it was or which ingredient it was.

My hair did grow at a faster rate during these supplements but again, i'm not sure which product was the source.
As with any supplement you may want to talk to your nutritionist, doctor or healthcare provider prior to taking. Everyone has different needs or results so your experience might differ from mine and not every vitamin is necessary for every individual.

Baby Box Company burp cloths review and giveaway

These adorable yet simple washcloths and burp clothes from the The baby box co. are extremely soft and even softer once they are wet.  Little Crazy Life is well beyond the diaper stage, but these are super soft and great for the tub even now. She loves how soft they feel on her skin and face. This would be a great baby gift for a friend OR yourself!
These are organic fleece that soak up a lot of moisture. The washcloths are 6"x6" and the burp cloths measure 16"x9".

Another thing I love about these are that they are made in the USA. The baby box co has great pictures on facebook. Check them out. They use soft white fleece fabric that has a color stitching around the edge that makes them a very special gift. These are machine washable so can easily be thrown in with the rest of the laundry.  By using reusable absorbent fleece you can save money and it saves your clothes from baby stains as well.

In Finland the state provides mothers a box filled with items to help with the impending birth of the new baby. This box includes items to cover basic needs, blankets, and clothes. The box itself has a mattress and can serve as a bassinet. What a fantastic idea! This dates back to the mid 1930's and appears to have helped lower the death rates.

Wouldn’t it be great to have a starter kit as a new mom? They have the bed box, the classic box, the nature box, and the everything but the stork box. They include pacifiers, blankets, lovies, burp clothes etc.
Enter for your set here and if you cant wait use the coupon code BABYLOVE15 and you receive 15% off your first purchase at The Baby Box Co.

"gently scrub away dead, flaky skin while nourishing and moisturizing your skin "

I will spare you pictures of Mr Crazy lifes boot feet, but let me tell you... this stuff is heaven in a jar. It really helps slough of summer skin and gives way to fresh new skin!

Please note – because the body scrubs are all-natural with the only preservative being Vitamin E, they have a shelf life of 12 months. :)

ReCap lids review and giveaway

ReCAP sent me three lids to review with my own opinion. This was by far one of my favorite products because of the sheer usefullness! I received one wide mouth lid and 2 regular. There are some items that NEED a pour lid on it (chocolate chips). This helps the chocolate chips from falling on your face as you eat them from the jar (just kidding… sort of). This lid could also be of great help so those chocolate chips or bulk yogurt raisins from falling on the floor as they all pile into your hand while you try to shove a bunch quietly into your mouth when your children arent looking. No, I have not done this. EVER. 
 I use mason jars for pretty much EVERYTHING in my house.
Organizing the pantry, the laundry cabinet, Hiding the sundrops (similar to M&M’s), Storing Cupcake wrappers, Coconut oil in the bathroom for oil pulling, Pen holder, Organizing small linen closet essentials, and trying to keep the fridge organized. The recap lid is great to use on a mason jar when I make juice also! One of my favorites is carrot, apple, cucumber, celery and beet. YUM! This is my favorite way to clean out the fridge.

So many uses so little time. How do you reCAP?

Masterlock 5900D Space Safe review

Masterlock sent me this handy contraption to review with my honest opinion.

A trip to the beach recently made me realize we had no safe place for our things. If we wanted to lock something up it could easily be stolen. I then saw this product. It can hold cell phone and keys and wind the cord through the zipper pulls of a backpack. We usually position ourselves near the swings mid beach so we could actually attach this to the swing set itself. I don’t think we would ever leave our bags by themselves, but this would be great if we ever needed to.
When you set the lock to the combination the cable disengages and allows it to be free on one side. Then push it back into the slot and mess up the combo. This could also be useful for a teenagers locker, a desk drawer at work, bike, etc. The cord isn’t extremely long, but long enough it can be attached to a backpack and wrapped around a bleacher leg for school events etc. It is lightweight and has shock absorbing foam inside. SO Cool.
