CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ MiniMaestro™ Diapers Review & Giveaway!!

Monday, April 30th, 2012

 

 

 

Min­i­Mae­stro™ was born when a mother, Sophie Grat­ton, was hav­ing a dif­fi­cult time find­ing dia­pers that fit all of her cri­te­ria. This mommy of 2 chil­dren wanted to find dia­pers that were green and didn’t want any­thing to do with the reg­u­lar plas­tic ones that would sit in the land­fill for years to come. After lots of research, Sophie was extremely sur­prised to find out that day after day, in Canada only, we were fill­ing up land­fills with a huge amount of dis­pos­able dia­pers; in fact, more than 4,5 mil­lions per day!

For some, it can be hard to imag­ine a world with­out plas­tic – espe­cially plas­tic bags.

The cons of using plas­tic bags are so over­whelm­ing I don’t think I can think of any pros. They are a huge pol­lu­tion prob­lem, their light­weight design allows them to blow away eas­ily. The fact that they are free gives them no value so peo­ple don’t think about how they dis­pose of them. They are made from petro­leum, which could be used for fuel or energy. They don’t biode­grade, instead they break­down and are mis­taken for food and are often eaten by both land and marine ani­mals which is fatal. They are found every­where and many ani­mals become fatally entangled.

They are not biodegrad­able, so they will per­sist pretty much for­ever, wher­ever they end up. Land­fills if we are lucky, but because of their wide­spread use and their abil­ity to fly away in the wind, they can be a big part of the trash along roads and fields. If they get into the water, they look like food and end up clog­ging the stom­achs of a vari­ety of ani­mals, most famously sea tur­tles look­ing for jellyfish.

The recy­cling of plas­tic bags, while prefer­able to other dis­posal meth­ods, is not cost-effective. Plas­tic bags have only existed for 25 years yet the bil­lions that have been pro­duced since then have caused immea­sur­able dam­age to the envi­ron­ment and to wildlife. There­fore, Min­i­Mae­stro™ Dia­pers is def­i­nitely the way to go for any new parents!!

 

 

 

 

Min­i­Mae­stro™ car­ries a sized pocket dia­per in 5 dif­fer­ent sizes in an exten­sive array of 12 funky colours.  I received a size medium Min­i­Mae­stro™ Dia­per in the colour pink to review. Since they are a sized dia­per you don’t have to worry about the snaps to fig­ure out the rise and in fact, you don’t have to worry about snaps at all.  Instead of snap­ping the wings around your baby’s waist, you use the Vel­cro tabs.  There is a wide band across the waist that allows you to get the best fit pos­si­ble for your baby.  There are laun­dry tabs so the Vel­cro doesn’t attach to every­thing dur­ing the wash­ing process.  There is a sin­gle wide open­ing to place your insert inside the dia­per.  The insert is made of nat­ural and syn­thetic fibers between 2 lay­ers of extremely plushy soft bam­boo fleece!

 

 

 

 

I love Min­i­Mae­stro™ Dia­pers and rec­om­mend that every­one pur­chase these from now on! They:

  • Exten­si­ble and water­proof PUL outer shell
  • Soft microfleece inner to keep baby dry
  • Form-fitting elas­tics to pre­vent leaks
  • Wide pocket open­ing with dou­ble elas­tics, for easy stuffing
  • Long fold­ing aplix tabs
  • Wide front band to adjust the height of the waist

 

 

 

 

 

 

They also come in a vari­ety of sizes to fit baby just perfectly!!

Sun, heavy exfo­li­a­tion and the ele­ments can leave your skin dry and cracked, and def­i­nitely in need of much hydra­tion. This rich but­ter melts in to restore skin’s nat­ural mois­ture levels.

This rich and lux­u­ri­ous cream is excel­lent for mois­tur­iz­ing dry skin, and the light rasp­berry scent will leave a fresh fra­grance that will delight your senses!!

 

 

 

 

 

I have used many body but­ters, but this is the best. It is not sticky and really smooths your skin. It has a won­der­ful light fra­grance. I highly rec­om­mend it’s use for soft skin results.

 

Expe­ri­ence the ulti­mate indul­gence of lux­u­ri­ously pam­pered skin with the Cake Milk Made Nour­ish­ing Body But­ter as it mois­turises, and con­di­tions your skin at the same time. Your nour­ished and replen­ished skin will be glo­ri­ously soft and glow­ing with vital­ity.

This phe­nom­e­nal body but­ter soft­ens my elbows like noth­ing else, but I like use it on my legs, feet and shoul­ders as well. A lit­tle of it goes a long way. It has a non-greasy, silky tex­ture and smells sooooo good. Best of all, it doesn’t irri­tate my sen­si­tive skin like other scented prod­ucts tend to do. This is the best body but­ter that I have ever tried, and I highly rec­om­mend this prod­uct! I will def­i­nitely con­tinue to buy it as long as it’s avail­able at my favorite online beauty and body care prod­ucts site, EdenFantasys.com.

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ PhoneFetcher Review & Giveaway!!

Sunday, April 29th, 2012

 

 

 

I recently came across a nifty lit­tle gad­get on the net called the Phone­Fetcher and it’s so neat!

If you are any­thing like me, you are for­ever mis­plac­ing your cell phone, (or in my case, I con­tin­u­ally think that I have lost it for good and have mini panic attacks while search­ing through my purse or pock­ets for it!!) and with­out think­ing you set it down some­where, or with a huge purse like mine, it’s dif­fi­cult find­ing any­thing — let alone a cell phone!

Well thanks to the Phone­Fetcher, one no longer has to worry about where their cell phone is any longer.

The Phone­Fetcher is sim­ply mde on a stretch­able bungee cord, which allows tex­ting and view­ing with­out hav­ing to dis­con­nect the phone. When the phone is removed from the bag, we leave our Phone­Fetch­ers hang­ing out of our bag to alert us as we leave, that we do not have our phone with us.

 

 

 

 

This new handy Phone­Fetcher just sim­ply attaches to a purse, back pack, gym bag, baby bag, belt loop, etc. on one end, and the other end attaches eas­ily to the ear­phone plug of a smart phone, mp3 player, iphone, or what have you! I tried it today while I was out, and let me tell you — it worked like a charm!! My friend Deb­bie always reminds me that it’s my OCD kick­ing in when I am for­ever search­ing for my iPhone, but not any more! This nifty new gad­get surely takes the worry out of me, no more hunt­ing end­lessly for my phone! Hurray!!

The Phone­Fetcher comes in a vari­ety of very pretty colours, so pur­chase one … or pur­chase them all! These also make the per­fect gifts, and are espe­cially great to use for stock­ing stuffers as well!

 

 

 

 

 

I absolutely rec­om­mend the Phone­Fetcher to every­one out there! You won’t be sorry! It hon­estly saves you so much time and trouble!

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

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Bloom Creative Studio Review & Giveaway!!

Saturday, April 28th, 2012

 

 

As many of you know, I have 35 nieces & nephews (this 35 makes up for both nieces/nephews AND great nieces/nephews), with 2 on the way. It is always excit­ing to be able to shop for all of my lit­tle pump­kins, although it is hon­estly hard to find great qual­ity children’s cloth­ing at rea­son­able prices. Great qual­ity usu­ally equals great price tags unfor­tu­nately, and with so many to buy for, it’s really dif­fi­cult for me to afford it all.

 

 

 

 

Fur­ther­more, I also find it hard to locate styl­ish children’s cloth­ing that is unique to all oth­ers. Until of course, I came across Bloom Cre­ative Stu­dio on the inter­net and fell right in love! Bloom Cre­ative Stu­dio sells all things chil­dren on their main web­site, as well as also main­tain­ing an Etsy Store!

On their main web­site, you can find:

 

Murals

Room Designs
Cus­tom Bedding/Curtains
Step Stools
Table and Chairs
Toy boxes
Rock­ing Chairs
time­out chairs & desk chairs
Wall Art
Room Aces­sories
Girl Jean Jackets
Girls Jean Overalls
Sweet Feet
Tutu’s and Wands
Hats,Headbands & Crowns
I was so pleased with the gor­geous lit­tle girl’s jean jacket that I was sent to review for Andi!!!!! Jen­nifer Winslow (owner of Bloom Cre­ative Stu­dio) cus­tom makes every­thing, you will never find two pieces that are the exact same! You can choose the colours as well as the styles and size, and voila! Con­sider it done!! Shop­ping at Bloom Cre­ative Stu­dio is a com­plete must, each piece ordered is spe­cially made  in the US with love and care for the spe­cial lit­tle one(s) in your life. Be sure to check out all of the other phe­nom­e­nal children’s cloth­ing as well as children’s cre­ations sold at Bloom Cre­ative Stu­dio. You will be just as blown away with Jennifer’s work as I was! I thought that the jacket that I requested to review was super nice on her web­site, but to see it up close and per­son totally exceeded my expectations!!
Isn’t is gor­geous?? I am totally sold on Bloom Cre­ative Studio’s beau­ti­ful work, and I know that you will be as well! Their cus­tomer ser­vice skills as well as deliv­ery time were also beyond outstanding!!
Bloom Cre­ative Stu­dio gets a huge thumbs up from CoolCanucks!!
