Flick Football Game, (Great for parties and tailgating) #Giveaway

*Products Received*


My husband loves sports, especially football.  He loves to watch it, play it, go to the game and loves anything else that has to do with sports.  When he does get the opportunity to go to a game he loves to tailgate before the game, grilling and playing games with his friends.  When I told him about a new game I came across that would be perfect for tailgating he couldn't wait to try it out.  Flick Football is a fun portable football game that is not only great for tailgating but is fun to play at parties to keep everyone entertained.  

We are always hosting parties at our house and to keep our guests entertained we usually play corn hole which is an outdoor game so if it rains we are stuck in the house with not much to do.  With Flick Football you can play it outdoors but you can also play it indoors as well which is perfect for rainy days.  My husband and I enjoy playing it together with just us and my daughter of course.  She is a little too young for it but she is actually getting pretty good at flicking the ball.  I'm not that great either but I enjoy playing it and spending time with my family.  My husband has already mastered it and he can't wait till our next party so he can show off his skills.

Flick Football comes with a Goal Post/End Zone, 6ft Playing Field and a Football.  It is very easy to assemble.  Most of the Flick Football game rules are the same as real football but you can alter them to your liking, (just let all the players know the changes).  So basically the playing field is where the game is played, the ball is used to kick/flick for points and the goal post is where the ball must travel through to make a field goal.  A field goal is worth 3 points, a touch down is worth 6.  If a player gets a touchdown then they will attempt and extra point (worth 1 point).

There are 5 different games you can play with this product.  Choose which game you would like to play, make any changes you would like.  Next flip a coin to see who goes first.  Then have fun!!!


1. Field Goal Football (requires one or more dice)                   
Note: Using 1 dice makes the game move slower, using more than one dice makes the game move faster) This game requires each player to have something that marks their position on the field at all times during the game.  The numbers on the die/dice represent yards.  Each player gets 4 downs or 3 downs and 1 kick/flick per turn, unless a first down is achieved.  A player does not have to attempt a field goal during their turn, except when they reach the 20 yard line at the goal end of the field on any given down during their turn.  Players can attempt a field goal on any down during their turn.  However, if a player makes or misses a goal (regardless of what down they are on) they return to the 20 yard line (starting point) and await their next turn.

2. Longest Field Goal - (This is what we have been playing)     
Each player starts at the 20 yard line and is allowed 2 attempts to make a field goal.  If a field goal is made on the first or second try that player moves on to the next round (ten yards back), if a player misses on both attempts they are out.  The game continues until there is only 1 player left.  If 2 or more players reach the end of the field tied then there is a sudden death playoff, 1 attempt each until someone misses. 

3. Game Day Football
(2 players or teams of players)
Pick a game on TV then decide who has what team.  Each time your team attempts a field goal or extra point you make the same attempt. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins.  If there is a tie play longest kick/flick sudden death to determine a winner.

4. Speed Field Goal 
Players have a given time period to make as many field goals as they can.  Pick a point on the field from which all the players will play from.  Decide the amount of time that all players will have to make as many field goals as they can.  Set a timer for the allotted amount of time.  When a player is ready, start the clock. (This game plays best with additional footballs).

5. Pro Football (requires one or more dice)
Note: Using 1 die makes the game move slower, use more than one and the game moves faster.  All the rules for the Field Goal Football will apply to this version, with the addition of a chance to make a touchdown.  A player only needs to roll enough yards during their turn to cross the goal line by 1 yard to make a touch down.  After a touchdown the player has a chance to kick/flick an extra point from the 20 yard line.  

*To make it more difficult they suggest adding an oscillating fan to create swirling winds just like the conditions players face in real football.

 (I actually caught my husband making a goal in the photo)


Flick Football is very reasonably priced and you can purchase it online at Ebay and at Amazon.  This would make the perfect gift for the sport fan in your life.  It would also be great to buy one to have around to keep your holiday guests entertained.

RideTight & RideTight Jr. (Adaptive Seatbelt Positioner) #Giveaway

*Products Received*

RideTight is an adaptive seatbelt positioner.  There are two different versions available.  The RideTight Jr. which is made to use with booster seats and the RideTight which is made for children 8 and older that no longer need a booster seat as well as smaller adults.  They are designed to provide a safer, more comfortable ride by making seatbelts fit more securely.  The green one (RideTight) also helps keep the seatbelt off your or your child's neck too.  Did you know that kids 8 and older are injured up to 5x more often in a crash due to poor-fitting seatbelts?

I was sent both versions to try out.  My daughter and I both are small framed and from what I had read on their website I felt like this was a product that we both could really benefit from.  I have the problem with the seatbelt always rubbing my neck which is so uncomfortable.  I have tried using strap cushions but they still rub against my neck.  Installing the RideTight and RideTight Jr. was very simple.  I installed my daughter's first.  There are four steps to installing this product to your seatbelt.

Step 1: To install the RideTight Jr. have your child sit back in the center of the booster seat and buckle up.  Next loosen both knobs on the product by turning them counter-clockwise until the right side of the red clamp plate can pivot up.  Place the shoulder belt webbing so it is flat against the gray belt guide and centered between the two knobs.  

Step 2: Pivot the red clamp plate back down over the shoulder belt webbing and tighten both knobs clockwise so that your RideTight Jr. fits securely but can still slide up and down on the shoulder belt.

Step 3: Slide the RideTight Jr. down until it fully contacts the T-shaped chrome latch plate.  While holding the product here, pull up firmly on the shoulder belt to tighten the lap belt until you can fit only two fingers between the lap belt and hip bones.  Continue pulling up on the shoulder belt and fully tighten both knobs.  The tighter the lap belt the better, as long as your child is not too uncomfortable and can still buckle and unbuckle with no trouble. 

Step 4: The RideTight Jr. now stays securely on the shoulder belt to help position your child's lap belt low and tight any time they are buckled up.  Just buckle and release the same way you have always done before.  You only have to fit it once (until your child grows more).

At first the seatbelt may fill a little different to your child since it does fit more securely but they will get used to it.  It actually didn't bother my daughter because she just recently transitioned from her car seat to the booster seat so she was still used to being strapped in tighter.  This is one of those products I feel like every parent should have.  My daughter likes to take naps in the car and being in the booster seat now I have been worried about the position she ended up in while sleeping.  I usually would wake her up because I was worried that we could get in a wreck and she could get hurt really bad in the position she was in.  I really like the RideTight Jr. and I feel like my child is much more secure while using it.  I now no longer worry too much about her taking naps.




Below is a video of how to install and fit the RideTight Jr.




The RideTight is easy to install too.  It also works really well at keeping the seatbelt off my neckI felt like it provided a more secure fit which would be perfect for children who tend to slouch while riding in the car.  It helps to keep the seatbelt low and tight over the hipbones providing a much safer riding experience.  Installation is basically the same as the RideTight Jr. with only a few differences since the RideTight has two belt tabs to help position the shoulder belt off your neck.  Below is a video on how to install the RideTight.

Foam-Crafted Kid's Furniture by Foamnasium - Review & Giveaway

*Products Received*

Foamnasium offers a variety of foam-crafted kid's furniture and play room products.  They have chairs, sofas, tables, blocks, steps and more.  These products are soft, safe, durable and environmentally friendly as well.  They are great for helping to build your children's motor skills and imagination.  All of their products contain an antimicrobial additive so if the foam gets wet then no fungi or bacteria can grow on it plus it is flame resistant.  The foam is covered with a strong highest grade vinyl that is easy to clean and is lead and phthalate-free.  My daughter is always spilling things so I really like these features.  You can buy each piece individually or choose from one of their activity and group sets.  I would love to have everything they offer.  It is so hard to choose because I know my daughter would enjoy them all.

We finally decided to choose the Straight Back Seating Group.  It features a classic clean cut and colorful design.  Included in this group is a red sofa, yellow chair and a green corner table.  It is very comfortable and well made.  My daughter loves it and she has already managed to create her sitting area into much more.  Some days she moves her sofa against mine and we both lay on our sofas and watch movies together.  Other days she is constructing the furniture into a play area where she jumps, climbs and slides down the furniture.  She realized that she could also use the corner table as a "see-saw" so she calls it.  This is great for helping her get some exercise and release some of her energy.  I love that the furniture is not to heavy so that my daughter is able to move it around easily.  The chair and table also have a handle on the back of them so it makes it even more easy to move and carry.  This furniture set is going to really come in handy around the holidays so that there will be more seating for the kids.  Usually the kids end up having to sit on the floor and now they will not have to.  If my daughter didn't think she was a big girl enough already she really definitely does now.  She has her own little sectional living room set.



We set up the furniture set in the living room without her knowing and this was her first reaction after seeing it, priceless...

"AnyWear Seat", Portable Seating Anywhere #Giveaway (2 Winners!)

*Product Received*


How many times have you been to places such as the park, sporting events, festivals and parades but had nowhere to sit?  You didn't want to just sit on the ground and get your clothes dirty but you also didn't want to have to carry around a fold up chair either.  Now you don't have to worry about any of that with the "AnyWear Seat".  This product is a comfortable water resistant, clean place to sit, anywhere you need a seat.  It has an adjustable waistband to fit most sizes.  It is also washable so you don't have to worry about it getting dirty.

I received a black AnyWear Seat to review.  I like the light weight design and that you can attach it to your waist so you don't have to carry it around.  You can also attach it to your purse, backpack or belt.  When you are ready to use your seat (if you are wearing in around your waist) just turn the pack to the front, open and unfold from the pouch, turn it back around and sit down.  If you plan on doing a lot of sitting and standing you can leave the seat folded down so you can sit down whenever you want.  To fold the seat up, turn the seat to the front, fold seat in half, and roll back into the pouch, (this way the dirty side is enclosed).  I think this product is such a great idea and definitely serves it's purpose well.  

My family and I went to a festival this past weekend and I took my AnyWear Seat with me.  I was so glad I had it because there was no where to sit and it was sprinkling and sometimes raining during the whole time we were there.  I didn't get to take any photos because I didn't want to bring my camera in the rain but I did get some great use out of my seat.  My husband was a little jealous that he didn't have one and my daughter just sat on my lap when we stopped to rest and eat.  The AnyWear Seat would make a great gift for anyone.  My dad and husband love to go fishing and I think this product would be perfect for that.  I think it would also be great for hiking when you need to stop and take a break.

You know my daughter always has to try out the products too. :)


If you would like to learn more or are interested in purchasing an AnyWear Seat of your own you can visit their website at  www.anywearseat.com.



Win it! 
Two lucky readers will have the chance to win an AnyWear Seat, just in time for all the fall festivals. Winners can choose between the black or blue color.  Enter using the Rafflecopter form below.  Open to U.S. ages 18 and older.

Sometimes, chasing your dreams leads you right to where you belong!

The Ultimate Cookie Dipper #Giveaway (3 Winners)

*Products Recieved*


My family and I love eating cookies and milk.  It is a fun and tasty way for us to spend time together as a family.  It can also be very messy too.  I always have the problem where part of my cookie falls off into my milk.  Plus if you want your entire cookie to be dipped into the milk, your fingers have to also go into the milk too which isn't very sanitary.  I have found a solution.  "The Ultimate Cookie Dipper", it is a cute and fun product that allows you to dip your cookie in your milk and drink your milk at the same time while keeping your fingers clean.  

The dipper has a cute smiley face design and is available in 6 different colors.  To use the product, place a cookie (we chose Oreos) into the center of the smiley face.  The smiley face opens up easily so you can place the cookie in and close it up then dunk it into your milk.  The milk flows through the openings of the smiley face allowing the cookie to get moist making a perfectly dipped cookie.  The recommended dip time is 7 seconds per cookie.  When you pull the dipper out of your milk the milk easily drains out the same openings.  Then you can enjoy your cookie.  The dipper also has an attached disposable straw so you can sip your milk while dipping your cookie too.




We had such a fun time with our dippers.  I think they work great and they keep you from having to put your fingers into your milk.  Definitely great for kids which prevents them from spreading more germs.  They are also very easy to use.  My four year old daughter had no problem using hers and she actually had to show my husband how to use his.  I love that I no longer have my cookies breaking off into my milk too.  Who would've thought that eating cookies and milk could be this much fun?





The Ultimate Dippers would make a great gift for any occasion and they are very reasonably priced at only $3.00 each plus free shipping (U.S. only).  You can purchase your own dippers and learn more by going to ultimatecookiedipper.com.



Win it! 
3 winners will receive a pair of dippers of their own.  The colors will be randomly selected.  Enter using the Rafflecopter form below.  Open to U.S. ages 18 and older.

"ProBack", Drug-Free Pain Relief For Your Back #Giveaway

*Product Received*





Do you suffer from lower back pain and are you looking for a drug-free way to treat your pain?  The ProBack is a revolutionary breakthrough in back pain relief that can change the way you experience each day.  It is a back brace that has a special design which combines Counter-Force pressure together with a Bio Dome that fits into the center of your lower back.  Together these features reduce the strain on the muscles and other pain sensitive structures in the lower back to help relax muscles and relieve pain.  It is not only made to relieve pain but it also made to help prevent pain as well.  

It is designed to be worn discreetly and comfortably underneath your clothing and will not restrict your movements so you can perform your normal activities and allows you to live a more active lifestyle.  It also helps to improve your posture which I definitely have poor posture and that was one of the first things I noticed when I tried it on.  It gives you immediate improvement of your posture.  I haven't had a chance to really get to try the ProBack out for myself since I just recently had surgery and the area that I had surgery on is where you would wear the ProBack.   

My husband tried it on and he was skeptical at first because he didn't really notice any relief from his lower back pain.  It is stated in the instructions that most people will experience immediate relief but some people need to adjust to wearing the brace or even wearing it a little longer can make a difference.  My husband decided to wear it to work and usually by the end of the day his lower back is hurting him so bad.  He said that he noticed a significant decrease in his back pain at the end of the day after wearing the ProBack.  Now he loves it.  He wears it to work almost everyday and he now says that it does give him relief from his lower back pain.  He also has been using it while he does yard work to help prevent his pain too. 





If your back pain prevents you from doing the things you love to do then this may be the product for you.  If you are being treated for a medical condition consult your physician before using this product.  You can learn more about the ProBack and find out where you can purchase your own by going to  probackrelief.com. 



Win It! 
Three lucky readers will have the chance to enter to win a ProBack of their own.  Enter using the Rafflecopter form below.  Open to U.S. ages 18 and older.  Winners will have 48 hours to respond to my email or another winner will be chosen.

Trongs, Finger-Food Utensil #Review

*Products Received*

Do you love to eat chicken wings and ribs but do not like all the mess and sticky fingers that goes along with it?  I know I don't especially right as you start eating your phone rings and you have to rush to try and clean your hands before the call ends.  Well I have came across a product that can help you resolve those issues.  This product is called "Trongs".  It is a finger food utensil that is designed to keep your fingers clean.  Like they say on their website, it's like a "Chopstick on Steriods".  By the way you can also use them to eat sushi too, which is one of my family's favorite foods to eat.

The Trongs are very easy and fun to use.  Even my four year old daughter can use them.  You can use them to pick up basically any type of finger foods.  My husband tried them with chicken wings and my daughter tried hers with chicken tenders.  She has also used them for picking up cheese and veggies.  I took a few photos below of my family trying the Trongs for the first time.


You can also use the Trongs when preparing meals that require you to add breading to your meats and your hands can stay clean.  I don't like having all that floury mess all over my hands and I really don't like handling raw meats.  Also usually just as I start the process, my daughter comes in the kitchen asking for something and I end up washing my hands about ten times by the time I am through.  Now I can avoid the hassle by using my Trongs.  


This product is made in the USA which as I have mentioned before, I think it is very important to buy products that are made in the USAYou can purchase your own set of Trongs and learn more by going to their website at  www.trongs.com.

Owie/Preggi Pillow (Attaches to Your Seat Belt) #Giveaway

*Product Received*

The pillow pictured above has to be one of my most favorite products.  It is called the Preggi Pillow but it also referred to as the Owie Pillow.  It is designed to attach to your seat belt in your vehicle to help relieve the pressure on your tummy and make it more comfortable for you to wear your seat belt.  It is very soft and has a really pretty sparkly design, available in black, pink and white.  This pillow is perfect for pregnant women.  I would have loved to have had one of these during my pregnancy because of all the discomfort I felt from my seat belt compressing my abdominal area.  

This pillow is also great for people who have just undergone surgeries such as a Hysterectomy, Appendix, Gallbladder and more.  That is why it is also referred to as the Owie Pillow.  I recently had surgery to help treat my Endometriosis and this pillow was such a life saver.  I do not know how I would have been able to wear my seat belt all the way home after my surgery without the Owie Pillow.  It provided me so much comfort on my ride home.  I even brought the pillow inside and used it at night placing it under my arms across my chest which helped to prevent me from bumping into my incision.  

I had already been using the pillow before my surgery to wear with my seat belt because of a bladder condition that I have called Interstitial Cystitis (IC).  It is very uncomfortable for me to have any type of pressure around my abdominal area because of this condition. The Owie Pillow has provided me with so much relief and it allows me to be able to wear my seat belt more comfortably.  You can also use this pillow on airplanes with the seat belt, or as lumbar support and even for taking a nap when placed on your shoulder.  This pillow can be used by anyone looking for a more comfortable ride.  I can honestly say from my own personal experience that it will definitely give you more comfort especially for those who spend a lot of time traveling. 


You can purchase your own pillow by going to either of the websites below.  The pillows are the same but are just sold under two different names since they help for somewhat different purposes.

Margo Moo and Digger Dog Steam Inhaler by HealthSmart Review/Giveaway (4 winners)

*Products Received*

I am always looking for natural ways to treat my child's symptoms when she is sick with a cold and when her allergies are flaring up.  I feel that medications are not always the answer in every situation.  I recently came across these cute products, Margo Moo and Digger Dog Steam Inhalers by HealthSmart.  They are great for children and adults too.  The friendly design helps to make your child feel less anxiety when using the product.  Both products work the same way the only difference is the design.  They are easy to assemble and use.

The steam inhalers are made to help relieve allergy, cold, flu and sinusitis symptoms, naturally.  The treatments last only 6-9 minutes.  These particular steam inhalers feature a child-sized soft flexible mask which I really like.  The mask is attached to an extension tube that you can retract or extend for temperature control.  You can breathe in the steam through your mouth or through your nose.  It helps to relieve inflammation and upper respiratory congestion by loosening secretions and reducing mucous levels.  Below is a photo of the Margo Moo steam inhaler before assembly and a photo of the Digger Dog steam inhaler which I already assembled.



To operate your steam inhaler make sure you place it on a flat, stable surface within reach, so that the mask is facing towards you.  Gently pull straight up on the cover of the inhaler to remove the lid.  Next remove the cap to the water heater tank by turning it counterclockwise.  Using the included measuring cup, fill the tank with 25 mL of tap water then reattach the cap and cover.  These steam inhalers have an optional aromatherapy/drain tank which you can use to add saline or aromatherapy water if you would like.  If you choose to do so you can remove the tank and fill it with up to 60 mL of saline or aromatherapy water.  After you fill the tank, return it to the unit making sure that the suction tubes make contact with the bottom of the tank.  Next position the extension tube to a comfortable position by manually extending or retracting the tube.  Slide the variable steam control down for small-sized particles of steam (ideal for inhaling through the nose) and up for large-sized particles of steam (ideal for inhaling through the mouth).  Make sure the power switch is off then plug the power cord into the outlet.  Turn the power switch on and start your treatment.  The steam inhaler will begin to output steam in 60 seconds.  Once the steam becomes weak (6-9 minutes) turn the power switch off and unplug the power cord.  




Check out the instructional video below to see how the steam inhaler works.

I love both of our steam inhalers, they work great at relieving congestion quickly and they provide a safe effective treatment for my child the natural way.  I would definitely recommend these inhalers to any parent whose child suffers from allergies like mine.  It is also a great product to have around when your child happens to get a cold or any other illness that causes congestion.  Of course talk with your child's healthcare provider to determine the best treatment options.
