Cradl Phone Case review

 Cradl Case sent me this beautiful phone case to review. The color combinations are beautiful and help your phone stand out. This is helpful when you loses your phone on a regular basis in your own home. :) The case was brainstormed over a lunch date, and now you see its fruition.

 This is the 6s model in Bubbles. There is also a tree and block pattern. The internal skeleton of the case is molded with the outer shell. The material helps absorb and spread out the shock of the impact. There is also a rocker switch on the side which helps access the volume easier instead of just a regular flat buttons. They are made for the 5s, 6 and 6 plus as well as the IPad air.

 This case is a very sleek, low profile case with good shock protection. I was initially concerned about the open case if it ever got around a puddle of water on the counter, but so far that has not been a problem. the
The case is extremely easy to put on and has a great skid proof quality. There are many color combinations to choose from and provides a lot of variety for a great price point. They currently run $32 each so its affordable enough to get two if you like to change the case out.

Cradl gives back fifty cents from each case to Capital Gift program. They are also made in the USA.

The Oil Diffusery Essential Oil Pendant Review

 The Oil Diffusery sent me these beautiful necklaces to review for you.

This silver pendant reminds me of a celtic design.

I put just a couple drops of essential oils on the diffuser pad and it appears to last at least two days. It came with 5 colored  diffuser pads. The chain is 24 inches long and the pendant itself is about 1 1/4" wide. 

the antique silver  is equally as beautiful. Again, 5 colored pads are included. This pendant is about 1" wide. This one is made from copper with an antique silver finish.

Both of these are pretty light weight. I noticed no reaction to the chains or pendants. I love essential oils and I'm just starting to retain all the information out there. There is SO MUCH information out there so make sure to do your own research.  You can wash out the pads and reuse them which is nice.

The oil Diffusery has 2 pages of product selection in their store. So far I have been happy with both these styles. They do not appear to have any issues with the oils in them on a day to day basis.

I would love to see more information on their page about their company. This is their grand opening and their page has no featured items. It makes me try to login when clicking on their front page which I've never experienced. If you have any knowledge on that, let me know. It could just be my own issue. ;)

Nordic Naturals review and giveaway

Nordic Naturals  sent us DHA, vitamin d gummies, and probiotic gummies. While I cannot tell you about their effectiveness after just one bottle, the in

The DHA is cod liver oil in a soft gel capsule with no gluten, milk, or artificial colors/flavors. Little crazy life couldn't swallow these but I am able to get her vitamin a/d and omegas in other ways.

 The vitamin D3 gummies kids has 400IU of d3 with a flavor of watermelon. There are no artificial flavors, sweeteners or preservatives.

The probiotic gummies have 1.5 billion live cultures plus prebiotic fiber and is a berry punch flavor. There are no artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, or preservatives. The only thing I'm not fond of is the sugars. We limit sugar in little crazy lifes diet, but there is only 1 gram of sugar in each gummy, so overall it seems pretty low. no gluten, milk, or artificial colors/flavors.

Nordic Naturals was created in Norway. Read their company mission and their research practices. I do love that Nordic Naturals has a corporate social responsibility page that explains how they impact the world.

They have a list of their experts with a variety of backgrounds. One is a naturopathic physician. FANTASTIC! I'm all for a holistic view of health and from the surface it appears that this company tries to blend everything. However, that being said, you know your family and their needs best. Be their advocate and research EVERYTHING. Never take one persons opinion without researching first.  Be well!

Smarty Pants Vitamins Review

Smarty Pants sent me two versions of their kids vitamins. the red cap is kids complete, the green is kids complete with fiber. The complete with fiber has prebiotic fiber for digestive health.

As a mom, I'm always looking for a cleaner way to supplement little crazy lifes nutrition. We all know that kids diets could always use improvement. Heck, mine could too! If we don't KNOW better, we cannot DO better. That is why I was interested in reviewing Smarty pants!

Their approach seems to be to focus on the most missed vitamins with the standard American diet (Omega, D3, and b12). I have our family take sublingual methyl B12 as its absorbed at a much better rate than most B12. I cannot confirm what type  is used in these.

Take a look at their core value of being transparent as a company and read more about their story.  

With any supplement, you have to do your own research. Be diligent in your own health and find out whats really in your food. Its hard to know with just one bottle if you will have benefits. However I do love that they are allergen friendly, taste good, no synthetic colors, artificial flavors or preservatives. They are also gluten and allergen free.

There is also a line of adults and prenatal vitamins. Another thing I love is that as a company they give back and support vitamin angels.

If we have an abundance in this life, isn't it nice to share? Be kind, people! :)

Kays Naturals Review

Kays naturals sent me a few products to try. The taste of these protein cookie bites reminded me more of a cereal but they were really good.

We also chose chili nacho cheese chips. These were also pretty good. Little crazy life didn't care for them as they have a tiny kick of spice to them. We loved them though. The texture was a cross between a cheez-it and a chip.

The almond puffs have a flavor and texture I cant place, but they are on the sweeter side and pretty good.

While we don't eat this type of product on a regular basis, it is great to keep in the car for emergency snacks, in a desk drawer for when you find yourself out of snacks, or just a better choice than candy or junkfood.

Per their website "Kay’s Naturals we have surveyed the vast landscape of so-called nutritious foods and determined that the missing link is a Better Balance™ of protein, carbohydrates, fiber and fats. Kay’s all-natural, gluten-free line seeks to fill this gap with food that has a healthy balance of great taste, low calories, lean soy protein, zero cholesterol, lower carbohydrates and fiber. Our foods also provide a complete amino acid profile."

Products are tested at an outside lab with each run. This enables assurance of any cross-contamination that may have happened before the raw ingredients reached the facility.
