Start your Valentines Day off with a customized photo puzzle from Piczzles

At our house, we love puzzles.  So when I found, I just had to have one!

Piczzle Photo Puzzle service is an Internet-based sale and manufacturing service of Jigsaw Puzzles.  They specialize in the production of custom wooden and cardboard jigsaw puzzles.

The process, from start to finish was quick and painless.  Since this particular puzzle was going to be for M I let her choose the photo.  We went through a ton of photos!  I mean a ton.  But then we came across Ms first time flying a kite, our search was over.  Her reason for picking this particular photo was because it had her kite in it…so cute, right?!  After the “hard” part (choosing the photo), ordering was a breeze.

Piczzle developed a fun, quick and friendly online ordering system that allows everybody to easily create their own high quality jigsaw photo puzzles and this is how it goes:
1. Choose the size of your jigsaw puzzle, choose the number of pieces and choose your favorite graphic design.

2. Optional: Enter your MyWords text or choose a quote (free).
3. Specify your preferred puzzle packing option and delivery plan.
4. Upload your photo.
5. Confirm your order.
Pretty simple, right?!

This is not the first time we have ordered a picture puzzle from Piczzle....Remember this picture?
M was so excited to sit down and put it together! It came in a cute little, easy to open box.
  There were no little cardboard shavings because the pieces were in a zip-lock bag, which was awesome because those shavings are horrible to work around.  I was pleasantly surprised at how sturdy the cardboard really was.  The pieces fit together easily yet don’t fall apart when lifted.  I couldn't have chosen a better picture for this puzzle.  M was so happy to have a puzzle for her and her little sister to assemble together soon.  And since I let her choose the photo she was even more eager to put it together than first one.
Piczzle Photo Puzzles are printed using an advanced digital printing technique that results in sharp, multicolored prints, on premium grade cardboard and then laminated with a glossy finish, the puzzle is precision press cut so that all pieces fit perfectly together.

MeasuPro OX100 Instant Read Pulse Oximeter Review

Pulse oximetry is a way to measure how much oxygen your blood is carrying. By using a pulse oximeter, your blood oxygen level can be checked without the need for needles.
he provides accurate information about your blood oxygen saturation levels and pulse rate.

Why is this important?

When your oxygen level is low, the cells in your body can have a hard time working properly.  

Since accuracy is key it is important to purchase a high quality oximeter.  Enter the MeasuPro Instant Read. MeasuPro  promises superior accuracy and is very user friendly.  It has a rotating easy to read screen that makes measurements easily visible from all angles. 

 A device such as the Measupro recommended by both The American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association since pulse oximetry can identify some infants with critical congenital heart defect before they show signs of the condition.  Once identified, babies with CCHD can be seen by cardiologists and can receive treatment that can prevent death or disability.

The MeasuPro requires two AAA batteries that are stored in an easy access battery compartment. I like the automatic shut off after five seconds of inactivity, helping prolong the battery life.  And unlike other oximeters, this one includes both the required batteries and a carry case with a lanyard.

This device can serve as a great tool for athletes after a rigorous workout, those with certain lung disorders, and can be useful in some diabetic cases.  Getting a reading is super simple, just place your fingertip inside the device and wait a few seconds.  To test the accuracy I took it into my doctor’s office and compared the numbers.  The readings were within the -/+2% range of each other.

After having a home birth without all of the hospital equipment, it was nice to be able to read baby number two's blood oxygen level.  I love the easy to read large display and quick accurate response.  Its nice, compact, and fits perfectly in a gym bag or purse.  I am definitely purchasing one for my midwives!

Best Bluetooth Headphones EVER!

I constantly find myself rolling my eyes at my husband when he watches YouTube or listens to music on his phone.  It is always super loud and it startles the baby so I was couldn’t pass up the opportunity to review Coosh’s Bluetooth 4.0 Extended Range Headphones. These headphones are amazing with a capitol A! They have greatsound quality and are incredibly comfortable.  Since these are very user friendly my husband uses them all the time.  The padded head band, swiveling ear cups, and pressure relieving ear cushions allow for superior comfort and perfectly fit both kids and adults. 

We were able to pair these up to both our phones and computers with ease.  Being wireless with a 30 ft range makes the Coosh Bluetooth perfect to use during travel, around the house or while exercising.  Charge time takes only a few hours and last for up to 15.  All of the buttons are conveniently located on either side of the earpiece so changing the volume or the song is simple. 

However, the absolute coolest feature is the built in microphone for hands-free calling.  When receiving an incoming call your track stops and you have the option to pick up or ignore.  Once one has been selected and the call has ended, your track will continue.

I wouldn’t say that these are noise-canceling headphones but they do block out a lot of outside noise making your listening experience more enjoyable.  And the sound does not travel outside of the headphones so my husband is free to listen to whatever, whenever, and at any level. 

They conveniently fold flat so it can be stored safely in a protective carrying case (which is included).  If for whatever reason your phones bluetooth acts up you can still use your headphones conventionally with the (included) auxiliary jack.

I absolutely love the Coosh Bluetoothheadphones.  These are truly the most comfortable headphones that we have ever owned.  Everything right down to the packaging is super high quality.  They would make a great gift for anyone.  Definitely a 5 star rating!  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

No more slipping in the shower. Epica Bath Mat Review

With Little Miss M being old enough to take showers I constantly worry about her slipping and falling.  We have tried the “kids” bath mats because they were fun but in a matter of weeks they all seem to grow mold, even after being spritzed daily with vinegar and being hung to dry.  Also so many other bath mats I have tried hurt my feet and I feel like I am standing on sharp little lego pieces but not with the Epica Bath Mat.  

Not only does this bath mat make showering safer for the whole family but it is makes the tub more sanitary with its heavy duty, latex free, bacteria resistant rubber.  And it is so big it nearly covers the entire shower floor.

Although the generous 16x28 size is a big selling point for the Epica Bath Mat, that's not what attracted me to it. It was the fact that it is the most comfortable mat I have ever showered on. 

 The underside of the mat is covered with suction cups that adhere firmly to the floor of a tub and do not slip or slide when wet. The suction cups will work on both regular and non-slip surfaces. The top of the mat is textured, giving your feet extra traction power and repelling soap residue from collecting.

I also feel much better about Miss M wanting to sit in the tub and play due to the mat being treated with an anti-bacterial agent designed to keep ‘disease-causing’ microbes out of the bath.

So not only does it help minimize the risk of slips and falls while preventing the growth of bacteria and build-up of soap residues but it is extremely comfortable. Hands down, a must have!
