Force Field Cloaks - Glow in the dark blankets

Force Field sent me a prototype of their blankets. They sent us the pink cloak and its SUPER fun! I would like to see a smaller logo on the blankets or perhaps a tag instead.

I cannot get a good picture of ForceField in the dark, so I will include some of their videos so you can see how amazing they work. 

The inventor, Terry Sachetti, and the CEO of The Glow Company created the Force Field Cloak™.
You simply Lay your Forcefield cloak under bright light for 10-15 minutes. This charges the Force Field for 8+ hours. Everything is non toxic and safe for kids. You can super charge the blanket with a black light as well. 

Lets hear what kids say. My daughter agrees with them. If your kids are afraid of the dark this would be a great item to help them hide and feel safe. It does not illuminate the room, but it does give them something to focus on and help eliminate the fear of the dark. 

These are currently in short supply for Christmas, GO NOW!

Zuru Makya brick building tape

Zuru Makya sent me their brick building tape.  It takes your kids building to the next level by allowing them to build in a totally different way. Now you can build vertically, horizontally AND UPSIDE DOWN!

This building tape is FANTASTIC! I've taken pictures with one, but will update it once we stick it to the wall (its going to be a Christmas present). I've been playing with a roll of it for a awhile now and its really neat. Its going to be even better when we can build on the wall! 

The brick tape is flexible, (ie: Lego, Mega Blocks, Keri, Lapin, and NIMUNA Loops) It goes on with attached Non-marking tape. You can cut it to any length, unstick it and move it! 

This is the adhesive side of the Makya brick tape. It  is made with  high quality food grade silicone and can be used in multiple ways. A few examples would be wall d├ęcor, Lego baseplates on a table, picture frame, 

Available in several colors and sizes.

Logitow smart building blocks and animation

 Logitow is made up of magical cubes with IoT and a powerful APP. Each creation kids build instantly becomes a 3D animation mirrored over wireless connection on a tablet. This is WAY cool.

When I first saw Logitow, I was intrigued. Ipads are a great tool, but kids get addicted to just watching it. This is a great solution in combining the technology of the ipad, but the hands on approach of her physically creating something. 

The app is not released yet, so I am going to use a couple from Logitows indigogo page.
This is great for STEM activities and anything built can be saved and exported to 3D printer. Logitow allows kids to build with their hands, see it on screen AND print a 3D model. AMAZING! Now to get a 3D printer! 

Once the app is available I will do a follow up post or update. I'm really excited to see this in action.

Each set comes with
- Cube Blocks
- Key Block x1
- Ending Block x1
- Micro-USB Cable x1 

1.Download Logitow App from Google Play or App Store (Release Dec.)

2.Turn on the Logitow Key Block, connect with Cube Blocks, and finish it with the Ending Block

My Magic Mud toothpaste

My Magic Mud sent me their Cinnamon clove toothpaste as well as a mini peppermint. . I have tried so many natural toothpastes over the last couple years in combination with oil pulling. 
I actually switched back to traditional toothpaste after not being able to get rid of the dingy look to my teeth. I  drink black tea which stains and nothing got my teeth whiter. 
In comes My Magic Mud. Their site says "Strengthen & Whiten Your Smile with Activated Charcoal". 

My Magic Mud uses Activated charcoal, coconut oil, bentonite clay, and organic essential oils. They are vegan and use no fluoride or GMOs. The toothpaste comes in spearmint, peppermint, cinnamon clove and wintergreen. They also have tooth whitening powder for evening. 

My Magic Mud uses no foaming agents, fluoride, glycerin, toxic chemicals, cruelty, tricolsan, GMOs or Gluten. 

I do have to say  I saw a REMARKABLE difference and almost instantly. I took a picture before and then on the third day and sent it to the company. The results were so dramatic that Mr. Crazy Life and little Crazy Life started using it as well. They use diatomaceous earth which is a mild and porous abrasive to help get the plaque off the teeth. It feels like I've just been to the dentist every time I brush with My Magic Mud. That's how clean my teeth feel. 

Little Crazy Life does not like strong flavors, so I was shocked when she tried the cinnamon clove. She actually has been brushing her teeth without a fight since we received My Magic Mud. She started with her normal strawberry toothpaste and added a bit of the cinnamon clove. She plays with the amounts she uses until it fits her tastes. 

She LOVES the fact that the toothpaste turns her teeth black first. EVERY day she says "Mom, look! I haven't brushed my teeth in 100 years!" Using this toothpaste has also eliminated the need for timing her brushing sessions. She brushes until the water is clear, and that's just about 2 minutes. It gives her control instead of me harping on her. 

For the sake of those who have aversions to pictures of teeth,  I will not post a before and after. My Magic Mud has the OK to post it on their site if they want.

BeneFIT scrubs review

BeneFit Medical Apparel sent me a pair of their stealth scrubs in Ceil blue. These are the SOFTEST scrubs I have ever felt. They are literally like pajamas (believe me, I tried them)!
The scrubs currently come in 10 beautiful colors for the women's stealth.  I wonder if I could get away with wearing them out and about and just let them assume I'm in healthcare? If I did get more of these, I would probably get the both the stealth and the Helix with black sides. I love the color contrast! 

The BeneFit Top and bottoms retail separately for $32.99. These have a chest pocket and 2 side pockets. The Helix is the mid-protection scrubs. The stealth has no colored side panels or logos.. There is also a badge loop in the chest pocket. 

I love that these are water resistant to unwanted splashes and spills. With some scrubs there are issues such as saggy pants, boxy sleeves, un-uniform cuts, unflattering, cheap fabric,, etc. These are NOT your average scrubs. BeneFIT scrubs are so comfortable and soft AND they are veteran owned. Shout out to the owners (James Reynolds, Dylan Croslin, and Justin Culver) for their service to this country!! 

 The BeneFIT pants have two pockets on the legs and one on the bum as well as a drawstring waist. 

Mr. Crazy Life is totally jealous! I'm hoping we can get a few of their other BeneFit products from their men's and lifestyle lines.  These are the best scrubs I have ever seen and felt. 

The Helix Stealth features:
•Liquid Resistant
•Pre-Shrunk Fabric
•Light-Weight, Crazy Comfortable, Performance Driven
•4-Way Stretch Fabric That Adjusts To Body
-(Cotton/ Modal /Spandex Blend)
•Sleek Athletic Fit/ Not Boxy
•High Quality/Durable Stitching
•Fashionable, Professional Style
•2 Deep Vertical Pockets
• 1 Chest Pocket with ID/Badge Loop
• Right Sleeve Double Pen/Tool Pocket

LikeAGlove smart leggings review

LikeAGlove sent me these smart leggings. They measure your shape and send it via Bluetooth to the app.

I HATE Jean shopping with a passion. Its exhausting and frustrating. When I get to my goal, I will be ordering online and testing out the accuracy. I will have to do some measuring for my inseam since these are shorts, and not leggings. 

Once you save your measurements into the LikeAGlove app, you can track progress with your weight loss plan or order from a catalog of jeans that will fit you. They have many different brands, models and sizes. None of the jeans I normally wear are in the app, but gave me ideas of which to try on. I'm not posting a picture of the progress because you all don't need to know my measurements. ;)

The brands they promote on their site in their catalog are:
Levi’s, Lucky Brand, Banana Rep., Old Navy, 7 For All Mankind, Gap, Citizens of Humanity, Joe’s, Paige, J Brand, American Eagle, Ann Taylor, True Religion, AG, Hudson and more.

I am in  the process of changing my eating/exercise habits to lose weight. LikeAGlove has been great to track my process

Here is the inside of the LikeAGlove shorts. The orange lines are where they measure for high hips, low hips, etc. What I am loving about the shorts is that  LikeAGlove will show me changes in my body that cannot be measured by a scale. If I am gaining muscle and losing fat, my scale will not show me any loss that week.

The only thing I have noticed is you  have to pay attention to how you wear the shorts each time. Make a mental note or take a picture of yourself in them. That way you can get consistent measurements.  

Secondly, the app will crash sometimes and take a couple tries to get the measurements.
