Luxury Sheets by Yorkshire Mayfair

With spring just around the corner, it's definitely time to start preparing the home for warmer weather.  For many, this will most likely involve changing out comforters and heavy blankets for lighter more allergy friendly sheets.  However, finding quality sheets that aren’t costly can often be a daunting task Are they soft enough?  Are they truly allergy friendly?  Will they fit my bed properly?  These are just some of the many questions you may face when shopping for those perfect sheets.  Well, look no further.  Thanks to Yorkshire Mayfair luxurious sheets and their great color selection you are guaranteed to find the sheets to match your needs, I know I did. 

I was sent a beautiful sage color for review .  This sheet set includes both a flat and fitted sheet as well as 2 pillowcases.  These sheets are made with the highest quality brushed microfiber, making them super breathable, incredibly durable, and soft.  The deep pocketed corners guarantee a perfect fit even for a mattress in addition to a memory foam mattress pad .   The flat sheet is also "over-sized" so it can be tucked snuggly under any size mattress. 

Like any other bed sheet proper care is key.  If you do not take care of your bedding it will not last, no matter the price.  Caring for the Yorkshire Mayfair sheets is very easy.  And as long as you stick to the washing instructions, these sheets will not pill or fray.  Wash in cold water, omit the fabric softener, and tumble dry low.  Some of you may or may not know that harsh soaps and fabric softeners eat away at fabric, so it is best to launder with just regular laundry soap and exclude the fabric softener.  Also, you should avoid using hot water and over drying, as this will cause the threads to come loose.
Overall, I am really impressed with the luxurious sheets of  Yorkshire Mayfair.   You receive quality, luxurious sheets at an affordable price.  And did I mention that these sheets are WRINKLE RESISTANT!!  Absolutely perfect for our guest bedroom. With these revolutionary sheets you are guaranteed a more restful, restorative sleep.

Animal Trackers Club Review

All kids love animals so why not expand this love with an inexpensive monthly subscription specifically designed for your new reader. With their age-appropriate instructional materials designed to encourage hands-on learning through creative play and activities, Animal Tracker Club allows your child to “track” a new animal of the African Safari each month.
Animal Trackers Club is recommended for children ages 3 and up and will definitely hold their attention.  A subscription starts at just $11.95 a month plus $3.00 for shipping, and can be cancelled at any time.  This is a great way to introduce children to new animals in the animal kingdom.  

The Adventure Begins With:
Introduction to the Animal Trackers Club
Animal Trackers Club Safari Lunchbox
African Savanna Information Card
Cover and Ring for the Safari Animal Photo Collection
Savanna Art Project
Savanna Animal Cards Activity
Each Month Your Child Will Receive:
Animal Information Card
Animal Play Figure
Animal Foam Mask
Animal Magnet
Safari Animal Photo Card
Learning Activity
Art Project

Little Miss M  was so excited to have received a package just for her.  And Mommy was excited that she was excited to learn. 

 After reading the Animal Trackers Club introduction sheet, the first activity M wanted to do was create her "safari" scene with the included animal stickers.

The self-stick stickers were easy for her to use and she was even able to move them to different places on the sheets without them losing their stickiness. 

My favorite item is the Safari Lunchbox.  This versatile lunchbox  can become a play station for the monthly animal magnets as well as a storage for the animal figures, information card collection, and the "Safari Animal Tracks" ringed set.  M's lunchbox did arrive with a decent sized dent on the side but this does not affect the purpose of the box (and it does not seem to bother my daughter).  

  Although M loves all animals, I am so glad the first one sent was one of her favorites...the zebra.  So naturally, M's favorite item in the package was the zebra play figure.  The activities included were age appropriate, rewarding, and fun!  The foam mask is soft and comfortable so M did not want to take it off.   
Even after the activity portion Little Miss M continued to learn and play.  And since she learned that the zebra was part of the horse family she had to add her horse to the safari.  She was overjoyed to have received another zebra to complete her zebra family.

Overall, I was super impressed with the Animal Tracker Club.  Very well thought out and the addition to our home school curriculum.  

With 4 different subscription options you can easily fit Animal Trackers Club into any budget.

Monthly Plan $11.95 +3 shipping
3 Month Plan $36.00 +$3.00/month Shipping
6 Month Plan $70.00 +$3.00/month Shipping
12 Month Plan $135.00 +$3.00/month Shipping

Tracking your weight-loss with the proper tools! ~Weight Gurus Digital Scale Review

Ever since this last pregnancy my hubby and I have been trying to shed those extra "baby pounds" & "sympathy baby pounds". I am so happy I stumbled upon the Weight Gurus Smart phone tracking Digital Scale by Greater Goods.  This scale not only measures your actual weight but it also collects and displays body fat, muscle mass, water weight, and bone density.  And if you are like me, trying to shred some poundage but hate looking at those awful numbers, you do not have to.  You can track your progress by using the Weigthless option that only displays your change in weight.

I absolutely love this scale! My favorite feature by far is the option to connect the scale to your smart phone. It is super easy to sync. Just download the free Weight Gurus app from Google Play or iTunes App Store and take a snapshot of the code that appears after your stats have been displayed.

So you do not have to strain your eyes the Weight Guru scale uses large numbers accompanied by a nice blue back light. Since this scale is equipped with auto detection you can program up to 8 users!! So basically once your profile has been created, the scale will automatically match you to your correct profile by weight and can track our individual progress!! It determines who the user is by a range of 10 lbs. and in some cases my conflict with someone else in the home.  This issue is easily resolved by manually selecting your user number.  Because it is made with impact resistant tempered glass, the scale itself is slightly heavy but its low profile design allows for easy storage under the bathroom sink, in the linen closet or up against the wall behind the bathroom door.

Yet another bonus…batteries are included! Backed by a Backed by a 5 year warranty and a 100% satisfaction guarantee, you have nothing to lose but the numbers on the scale. The Weight Gurus scale is both accurate and user friendly. I can’t wait to see those numbers drop!

Stop by Amazon to purchase the Weight Gurus Smart phone tracking Digital Scale!

Teething is NO match for the soothing powers of Baltic Amber!

Teething is a stressful ordeal for everyone involved, but mostly for your little one. The constant drooling, irritability, lack of sleep, and pain…breaks my heart just thinking about it. Being a “crunchy” family we try searching for natural ways to heal and protect our family before turning to western medicine.  And while teething toys provide some comfort, sometimes your baby just needs total relief.  So with our little teethers we like to use Baltic Amber
When warmed against the skin, Amber releases a natural analgesic called succinic acid that is absorbed through the skin and then enters your blood stream.  For centuries its healing properties have been used to help both children and adults. Today it is most commonly used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, joint and dental pain, headaches, and teething. 

I truly believe in the soothing properties of Baltic Amber.  I have seen results first hand.  Unfortunately there are counterfeiters that try to pass off glass or plastic as real Amber.  There are a few tests that you can perform at home without damaging your Amber.  You can read about how to test for imitations in my next post Baltic Amber: Real or Fake? Toogli's Baltic Amber passed the test!

With Toogli you are guaranteed to receive a genuine product of high quality.  They prove this with their Letter of Authenticity that states the Amber they sell is 100% genuine Baltic amber that has been independently tested and meets the standards set forth by the International Amber Association.

Another reason to choose Toogli when purchasing Amber is their no-hassle, money back guarantee.  If you are not completely satisfied, Toogli will not only refund your money, they will cover shipping both ways!  So you have absolutely nothing to lose.

Are Amber necklaces safe?
The answer is, Absolutely!  You can use it as a necklace or an anklet.  I prefer to wrap the necklace twice around my daughter’s ankle and if needed securing it with a loose fitting sock. Either way, to minimize the threat of choking, it should definitely be removed when the baby is sleeping. Safety can also be ensured by using it only when the baby is active and under parental supervision. As a further precaution to remove amber teething choking hazard, this particular necklace is held in place by a screw clasp that breaks away when accidentally pulled or tugged by the baby.

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.
