CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ LabelLighthouse.com Stikins Name Labels Review & Giveaway!!

Monday, June 25th, 2012

 

 

 

STIKINS by LabelLighthouse.com are unique stick-on person­al­ized name labels with mul­ti­ple uses. You can use them to label all of your children’s cloth­ing as well as per­haps their bot­tles, sippy cups, shoes, boots, books, or just about any­thing you can think of! Stikins are washer, dryer and dish­washer safe and absolutely per­fect for all the cloth­ing and stuff that needs to be labeled for school. These labels come in extremely handy for back to school time.

LabelLighthouse.com has the answer with their very afford­able Stikins labels. These handy lit­tle labels can be used on every­thing from cloth­ing to food con­tain­ers to footwear. They are also a great choice for any adult’s label­ing needs, and I will even­tu­ally be order­ing more to see how they work for all of my hus­bands tools and per­sonal items. But this time around, I was blessed to be able to review the Stikins Name Labels for my nephew Nate.

 

 

 

 

 

 

We had a blast with our new per­son­al­ized labels stick­ing them on all of Nate’s t-shirts, school sup­plies, etc. and now we don’t have to worry about any­thing being mis­placed which is awe­some. Prior to this, Nate was get­ting his back­pack con­fused with another stu­dents because they looked the same, and my sister-in-law said that he was com­ing home with this other boys pack­sack on occa­sion. Now the dilemma has been solved thanks to LabelLighthouse.com.

 

 

 

 

 

 

What a God send these per­son­al­ized labels are for us!

 

 

 

“When Lena Grierson’s old­est daugh­ter started school, and returned home one time too many with­out a glove, it was time to start label­ing your name on things. Mrs Gri­er­son was sur­prised to find that there was no fast and easy way of doing that.

“Why not a peel-and-stick label?” she thought. Why not indeed! Thus LabelLighthouse.com was born. Mrs Gri­er­son and her com­pany are the exclu­sive dis­trib­u­tors of Stikins™ self-sticking name labels in North Amer­ica. The Stikins™ self-sticking ID label is a very easy to apply cloth­ing, shoe and item label. The cloth­ing name label sticks on to the wash care label of the gar­ment and is washer and dryer safe. It couldn’t be any eas­ier. And that of course is the idea.”

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ GlassDharma: The original glass straw Review & Giveaway!!

Saturday, June 23rd, 2012

 

 

 

Glass straws? Who knew? How awesome!!

Intro­duc­ing Glass Dharma Glass straws. In a world turn­ing green, (where plas­tic is on the outs thank good­ness!) every­one seems to be mak­ing smarter choices on what they can do to help the environment.

Recy­cling is an action you must take right now and a vital one con­sid­er­ing we are cur­rently using our planet’s resources faster than they can be renewed. Today, tonight and tomor­row recy­cling is an ongo­ing aware­ness to improve our abil­ity to sus­tain life on Earth. Your role in recy­cling can be as small or large as you want it to be. Most things can be recy­cled today, even with our present pro­cess­ing systems.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

David Leon­hardt sud­denly cre­ated Glass­D­harma: The orig­i­nal glass straw to lower the demand for plas­tic straws. Accord­ing to Leon­hardt (who did some research on the harm­ful effects of plas­tics and plas­tic straws in par­tic­u­lar), “that as of March 2008, McDonald’s serves an aver­age of 52 mil­lion meals PER DAY?!? How many of those served do you think were given a plas­tic straw?” “I hope it is becom­ing obvi­ous just how big of a prob­lem these pesky lit­tle plas­tic straws can be. Remem­ber, this is just from McDon­alds!! Get the pic­ture??” stated Mr. Leon­hardt who has been an avid lam­p­worker (glass­blower) for over 15 years.

 

 

 

 

 

 

“I started doing some work for a local glass shop in town and noticed that the owner had glass drink­ing straws for sale. I had never heard of these before and I am always intrigued by some­thing made out of glass that I hadn’t thought of. I was struck by the unique ele­gance in such a sim­ple item.

I imme­di­ately rec­og­nized that here was a par­tial solu­tion to our “plas­tics prob­lem”. Now, granted, there are a lot more plas­tics in our world than just drink­ing straws, but bear with me a minute and let me put things in per­spec­tive … As of March 2008, McDonald’s serves an aver­age of 52 mil­lion meals PER DAY! (Per their web­site) How many of those served do you think were given a plas­tic straw? I hope it is becom­ing obvi­ous just how big of a prob­lem these pesky lit­tle plas­tic straws can be. Remem­ber, this is just from McDon­alds!! Get the picture??

So …

I cre­ated the Glass­D­harma line of glass drink­ing straws and this web­site to con­tribute one solu­tion to the mis­use of plas­tics in our society.

Every­one that has seen these straws are filled with delight. Not just because they pro­mote health and are envi­ron­men­tally friendly, but that they do these things with ele­gance and style.

Plain and sim­ple, here’s how and why they work:

Glass straws don’t leach tox­ins into your food as you drink.
Each time you use your glass straw equals one less plas­tic straw end­ing up in your land­fill.
One glass straw replaces thou­sands of plas­tic straws. (How many times will you use a straw the rest of your life?)
Using your glass drink­ing straw adds a feel­ing of beauty to your day.

Glass­D­harma glass drink­ing straws are:

Made of borosil­i­cate tub­ing and is the strongest glass com­mer­cially avail­able.
Means that we have spared no expense in bring­ing you the strongest, most durable drink­ing straw possible.

Annealed to Corn­ing, Inc. spec­i­fi­ca­tions (a process that strength­ens the glass).
So you can have con­fi­dence you are pur­chas­ing the high­est qual­ity glass straws available.

Made of glass which does not leach ANY TOXINS into your food.
So you can use your non-toxic straws with confidence.

Cre­ated with the beauty and ele­gance that only glass can give.
You’ll feel like roy­alty – with a touch of ‘glass’.

A great envi­ron­men­tal addi­tion to your kitchen­ware.
Great for hot or cold drinks, microwave and dish­washer safe!!

Are fully backed by our 100% Sat­is­fac­tion Guar­an­tee.
If they don’t meety­our expec­ta­tions, return for a full refund.

Cov­ered with our unbe­liev­able Life­time Guar­an­tee Against Break­age.
Means that if they ever break, we’ll replace them — Free,
(Why do we do this?)

Hand-made in the U.S.A.
Buy­ing from Glass­D­harma means that your dol­lar is not going off-shore — it stays right here in the U.S.A.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was sent 3 of these awe­some glass straws for review, and I am now absolutely sold on them! They come in a vari­ety of really pretty colours, which makes it super easy that each per­son can dis­tin­guish their drink from anoth­ers! They all come with a handy lit­tle wire brush that you sim­ply insert inside of them mak­ing these glass straws extremely easy to wash and care for!

My thoughts on Glass Dharma: The orig­i­nal glass straw? Absolutely inge­nious! No more plas­tic straws!! One reusable glass straw replaces thou­sands of plas­tic straws. I just had com­pany over the week­end and we sipped bev­er­ages on the deck using these phe­nom­e­nal glass straws. Not only are they excel­lent for our envi­ron­ment, they also look super classy in the Mar­tini & Mar­garita Glasses!!!!! My friends really loved them as much as I do!

 

 

 

They even offer a life­time guar­an­tee on their glass straws!

Life­time Guar­an­tee Against Breakage

If, for any rea­son*, your Glass­D­harma Drink­ing Straw breaks, you may return the bro­ken straw for repair or replace­ment. If we can­not restore it to its orig­i­nal con­di­tion, we will gladly replace it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Glass Dharma: The orig­i­nal glass straw gets a huge thumbs up from Cool­Canucks, and I promise that I will be order­ing many more in the near future! I know that each and every one of you will adore them too!!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Dr. Lucy’s Yummy gluten free Cookies Review & Giveaway!!

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

 

 

Dr. Lucy’s Yummy gluten free Cook­ies are made with­out milk, eggs, peanuts or tree nuts, but you’d never know it—they’re deli­cious! Now one can enjoy gluten free cook­ies that taste so good and sat­is­fies the sweet tooth!

Heav­enly, gluten-free cook­ies are hard to find, but Dr. Lucy has found a way to beat that by cre­at­ing the most deli­cious, gluten-free, vegan and allergy-free cook­ies on the mar­ket today. This com­pany also sells many delec­table fla­vors that hon­estly tick­les the taste buds!

 

 

 

 

When Dr. Lucy Gib­ney learned her child had severe food aller­gies, she got down to some seri­ous med­ical research — in the kitchen. Today, Lucy’s cook­ies stand as deli­cious proof that no one should have to sac­ri­fice tasty treats because of their dietary concerns.

“Our Qual­ity Assur­ance Pro­gram pro­vides deli­cious treats for you and your fam­ily while doing every­thing we can to safe­guard you from these spe­cific aller­gens: gluten, milk, eggs, peanuts and tree nuts.”

With Dr. Lucy’s cer­ti­fi­ca­tions for gluten-free, kosher and vegan prod­ucts – you’re cer­tain to find the per­fect treat everytime!!

 

 

 

 

These cook­ies come in many tan­ti­lat­ing fla­vors: Sugar Cookie, Cin­na­mon Thin, Oat­meal Cookie, Choco­late Chip Cookie, Maple Bliss, and even Gin­ger Snap!

All the cook­ies are made from a sim­i­lar cookie “base” that con­sists of the in-house flour blend (gar­banzo, potato starch, gluten-free oat, tapi­oca, sorghum and fava), evap­o­rated cane juice, soy milk, sev­eral oils (palm fruit, soy­bean, canola and olive), fil­tered water, fla­vor­ing and cit­ric acid from corn, crushed soy­beans, soy lecithin, non-dairy lac­tic acid, beta carotene, bak­ing pow­der, bak­ing soda, salt, xan­than gum, cal­cium car­bon­ate, annatto extract color, sodium car­boxymethyl­cel­lu­lose, and methylcellulose.

Dr. Lucy’s cook­ies web­site describes the cook­ies as “crispy, crunchy,” and they hit the nail directly on the head. There is not a chewy bit to be found in these cook­ies. They’re seri­ously crunchy through­out. If you like your cook­ies crunchy, you’ll love these from the first bite to the last bite (which is often one and the same bite… since the cook­ies are pretty tiny, you can pop a whole cookie in your mouth all at once) and not even feel guilty!!

 

 

 

I received three boxes of these amaz­ing cook­ies. The three fla­vors sent to me were Choco­late Chip, Gin­ger Snap, and Maple Bliss. All three fla­vors were extremely tasty and enjoyed by the entire house­hold. No one com­plained, and even walked back for sec­onds. Melyssa is a really picky eater, and so when I am sent food or drink items to review, they must pass her taste test first. She gave Dr. Lucy’s Yummy gluten free Cook­ies a very big thumbs up, and con­tin­ued to snack on them through­out the course of the evening. So if she loves them, I def­i­nitely know that you will love them! I really liked the yum­mi­ness of Dr. Lucy’s cook­ies too. What a great any­time snack, and also a wel­comed addi­tion to everyone’s lunch bag around here!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dr. Lucy’s gluten free Cook­ies gets a huge thumbs up from Cool­Canucks, and I will def­i­nitely be order­ing more in the near future!!

 

 

♥→I received prod­uct for review. The opin­ions within this post are of my own and I was not influ­enced in any way. Please do your own research before pur­chas­ing prod­ucts. Your opin­ions and results may dif­fer than mine.←♥

 

 

Buy It!! You can pur­chase these gluten free Cook­ies at Dr. Lucy’s web­site, and also Lucy’s prod­ucts are now avail­able in over 7,000 stores across the U.S. & Canada and also in select stores online. Use our store loca­tor to find a store near you by click­ing here!
