Protein puck review and giveaway
Protein Puck sent me a shirt and a variety of protein pucks and minis. All the flavors are available here. The almond butter dark chocolate is my absolute favorite.

They also have clothing as well. However I would like to see more styles with small logos just on the front.

To be fair, Ive actually had these before and I really love them. They are such good quality with real ingredients that actually fuel your body. You can find all the ingredients here.

One of the reasons I love these pucks  is that they are gluten free, vegan, FULL of protein, and natural ingredients.

A little factoid about their story, they actually started in a small kitchen trying to come up with something new. They started selling to a local coffee shops and these bad boys were a HUGE hit!

LOOK at that?! They are freaking fantastic and I absolutely love these things. They have no GMO's, dairy, cholesterol, trans-fats & 0% daily sodium intake. You can buy them on their site or on amazon. THANK YOU amazon prime!

Protein Puck prides themselves on taste, clean ingredients, convenient packaging and a product that is extremely satisfying. Little Crazy Life always tries to snag the full size pucks. Hands off little lady!!

Protein Puck also have a 12 week challenge. Check out their blog for details.

Blade and Rose review

Blade and rose sent me this SUPER CUTE Monster outfit.
Their site says the are innovative and Funky. YES They are!! The company is named using the middle names of the owners children. How sweet! This is a family business and it’s a leading British clothing brand. Amanda created the brand while on maternity leave and its a hot item!! What adorable styles.

They sent me the Monster reversible bandana bib, blue bobble hat and monster leggings. The characters are on the bum of the pants…. SO Cute! The fabric is super soft, functional and hold up well in the wash.

The colors in this ensemble are jelly bean green with blue stripes and a monster on the bum. Freaking cute! The bobble hat is jelly bean green with Blue checked pattern and a green pom pom on top.  The bandana bib is much cuter than your average bib and just looks like a part of the outfit. GREAT for teething! This has a double snap to secure.

These adorable clothes from Blade and Rose make me (almost) want another crazy lifer!

Zuli review and giveaway

I received one zuli smart plug. What a cool product. I only wish I was able to fully test with three different units. The functionality seems extremely impressive.

This product can control your lights, appliances, or a Nest Thermostat from one app. The Zuli app turns ANY lamp into a dimmer. AWESOME!
Zuli can also detect when you're in a room and will instantly set the light and temperature. SO cool!
You can track energy usage of every light and appliance in your home through the app with iPhone 4S, 5S, 6, 6+, 6S, 6S+ and iOS 7.1 or later.

This is the only Smartplug that senses when you walk into a room and adapts the temperature and lights to a predetermined setting or your choice. What an awesome feature. Being a mom, I often come in the house with my hands completely full. With Zuli, I can have the lights come on as I walk in the door. This is much safer for everyone! With three smartplugs I could put a light in a few dark sections of the house so the light turns on automatically. This is PURE brilliance from a safety aspect.

With a minimum of 3 Smartplugs, the Zuli Presence feature can accurately pin-point your location within your home.. The Zuli app senses when you enter or exit a room and sets the lights and temperature. AMAZEBALLS! There is no need to fumble for the light switch or your phone.

Another cool thing for the winter months is you can stay comfortable sitting on the couch, trapped by a snuggling child, watching a movie, or just being lazy…. You can control everything with the Zuli App.

To recap:
·         Control any device plugged into the smartplug.
·         Never walk into a dark room again — lights automatically turn on when you walk in
·         Saves you money by turning off unused lights and appliances when you’re not in the room
·         Notifies the Nest Thermostat as soon as you come home

Breathe right strips review

Breathe right sent me a package of their strips to help facilitate a good night sleep.

These are lavender scented and stick better than the previous type I have tried.

You peel the backing off of the strip and place over your nose just above the bridge of your nose. Many times inflammation can cause the airway to be blocked causing snoring and loss of quality sleep.

When I used these I noticed an immediate difference. I really liked the lavender smell as well.

Check out this link on how they work.

Bondic review and giveaway

BONDIC sent me this liquid plastic welder. How cool is this???

Bondic kit. instructions seem simple enough. First you squeeze the liquid from the black cartridge onto the item that you are fixing. Second you flip the device over and use the UV light to cure the liquid.

Here is an instructional video from Bondic. We have used this on a few things and have found it to be extremely durable.

 -works best on rough surfaces and even better with undercuts
-solidifies only by exposure to UV light (LED included)
-works best in layers (the max. thickness of one layer is 1- 1.5 mm)
-works best when the surface is clean and free of grease
-solvent free, which is one reason why it doesn’t dry out
-liquid plastic welder that should be used with the principle of welding and not gluing

Here are some examples of practical uses for Bondic.

Boiron Homeopathics review and giveaway

Boiron homeopathics  sent me the the 4 products above. Unfortunately my pictures were dumped before I could save them in their original packaging.  Here is a link to their product lines.

Oscillococcinum is for temporary relief of flu-like symptoms such as body aches, headache, fever, chills and fatigue. Oscillococcinum works naturally with your body to temporarily relieve flu-like symptoms, such as fatigue, headache, body aches, chills and fever. Clinical studies have been shown reduction in both duration and severity of flu-like symptoms. There is no drowsiness or interaction with other medications. The pellets are sublingual and dissolve quickly under the tongue.  The pellets are recommended for ages 2 and up. Oscillococcinum works best when taken at the first sign of symptoms.  I have not found on their site what the equipment is that processes these. 

Here is a link to their manufacturing process.

Coldcalm Tablets for Colds (small orange tube on the right) is a homeopathic formula that can help sneezing,runny noses, nasal congestion and a minor sore throat. The pellets help to ease discomfort associated with common cold. My daughter puts them under her tounge and lets them melt.

Chestal Honey Cough and Cold and Chestal Honey (12 and older) helps relieve coughs and colds. This was a great help in the evening when my daughter would wake up in the middle of the night coughing. We have both been sick twice since Christmas.  This temporarily relieves symptoms of the common cold such as nasal and chest congestion, fitful cough, sneezing, minor sore throat, and runny or stuffy nose. This is safe to take with other types of pharmaceuticals since it is a homeopathic treatment.

Check out their testimonials here and their product catalog here.   Boiron also has a cool wellness website that has useful info, recipes and tips on how to keep well during the worst of cold and flu season

I would LOVE To try the arnica gel as my daughter is in sports and constantly gets bumps and bruises.

Longer lash by Green Esthetics Review and giveaway

Green Esthetics sent me a tube of their Longer Lash Eyelash Growth Conditioner Solution.

I have never used a product such as this, so I really have no expectations. I will update at a later date, as I have just received this.

The product is made in the USA with "all natural" ingredients. They carry a Natural Ingredient Resource Center label with a truth in marketing pledge. Find more about them at their website.  "Products labeled as “Made with/from Natural Ingredients” must contain at least 70% natural ingredients that meet the NIRC Criteria. The remaining 30% may come from ingredients that do not meet the NIRC Criteria for natural, however, products that include synthetic fragrances, artificial colors or ingredients from petrochemicals MAY NOT display the NIRC “Seal”. All percentages are based upon weight."

Longer lash promotes a difference within 4-6 weeks. Their blend has 70% natural ingredients with vitamins, minerals and polypeptides that assist at a cellular level. It has polypeptides, vitamins, minerals, and essential and natural oils that are used to promote growth and thickness.

Application is twice a day at the base of your lashes. Make sure your face is clean and apply in the morning and night. The brush is very thin so take care to not use excess. You do not want this in your eye or on your inner eyelid. With any product do not use while breastfeeding or pregnant unless you consult your doctor.

Apparently you can use this on your eyebrows as well. It is free of parabens, polypropylene, fragrance and phenoxyethanol.

Tweexy review and giveaway

The Tweexy is about 5.5 x 2.8 x 2.5 inches. It is a wearable nail polish bottle holder. The grip system allows for nearly any size polish bottle.  I tried all my polish bottles (50 of them) and it holds All Nail Polish Brands that I have.

Tweexy is available in bonbon pink, spa green and sapphire night. This cool product allows you to paint your nails anywhere. I don’t recommend the car though. ;)  

Tweexy is made of 100% soft, flexible silicone rubber. I do like that this keeps your polish close to your hands and that it can catch drips. That’s kind of a cool feature. I'm not sure it was meant for that.  It does not appear stretch out or tear, and has no seams that I can find. This would be really fun in an Easter basket or for Mother’s day!

It is super easy to clean with soap and water. It has flexible rings for two fingers that have little wings. These wings allow for you to either pull open the finger holes, or you can slide the tweexy off like a ring. After you polish one hand you can just lift the tweexy straight up off your hand.

I have noticed that some polish bottles I can actually open one handed while the tweexy is on my other hand. I push down on the bottle a little creating a bit of a grip, and then twist the polish lid.

Mess Maid NW Review of services


Mess Maid NW came out to my home and did a cleaning. I really have no pictures to show you but will include some from their site along with my personal experience.

First of all the scheduling process. I emailed them to give them dates of availability. They were prompt and courteous in their response.

The day scheduled w
e had 3 people come out for about 90 minutes. Brianna came in and introduced herself and the two other crew members. They were all very professional and polite. The staff cleaned our three bathrooms and kitchen. I had lightly cleaned them all that week as well.

The bathrooms looked amazing and I don't think I have ever seen them that clean before. I think they used some magic potion to get the rooms that clean. It was outstanding. Little crazy life talked to them a bit, but the crew didn't seem to mind and were very sweet to her. They even vacuumed our room and the hallway by the bathrooms. The gentleman wore a backpack vacuum and now I want one of those because it did an amazing job.

The kitchen got a deeper cleaning than I had a chance to do in awhile. Brianna cleaned the inside of the microwave and even got the glass cooktop sparkling clean and that is no easy task. Have you ever tried to clean one? They are horrid. The cooktop is one of my nightmares. The gentleman came down and vacuumed our rugs in the kitchen and they even moved and mopped the rugs. They were quick to get things done and the house smelled amazing.

They cleaned up behind them as they left the room and had a great system between the three of them.

Green Air Serene Living Amber Glass review

New GreenAir sent me this beautiful Serene living Glass egg diffuser. I have a few different styles in my house and this thing is becoming my new favorite along with the glass ball. Each style has its own features that I love.

The Serene living in amber measures about 4.5" x 4.5" x 8" and weighs 2 pounds. The Glass egg sits upon a wooden base adding to its earthy look and letting the egg be the centerpiece.

Here is the unboxing video

Serene Living Amber diffuser uses Ultrasonic Technology which does not heat or damage crucial oil properties, which allows you to enjoy all the benefits of aromatherapy. The essential oils are dispersed in an ultrafine vapor. This helps suspend them in the air for longer periods of time and better inhalation. The selections for power are on/off, 1 & 2 hour timers, and a 3 stage nightlight/dim feature. We typically turn the light completely off on our Greenair diffusers for night time, while Little crazy life keeps her son white or blue.

One of the features of the New GreenAir Serene Living Mister is a 400ml reservoir, which allows up to 7 hours of essential oil diffusing. This is important as we use these in our rooms at night to allow for noise to help Mr sleep at night.

This is a look at the inside. This one differs a bit from the other models as it has a tube for the steam to reach the top of the egg.

We use about 3-5 drops of essential oils to the reservoir depending on the strength of the oil. Some of our favorites right now are lavender mint, orange clove, and lemongrass.

Like any hand-blown glass the fit may not be exact, but the beauty of the egg far surpasses the need for a perfect fit. There is a rubber ring that sits on the base to protect the glass cover. There is a slight bubbling sound that helps lull you to sleep. Like all the other New GreenAir diffusers these turn off when there is no more water. Be sure to pay attention to the fill mark within the base so the water doesn’t pool up on the surface under the diffuser.

This is absolutely beautiful. The more I look at it the more I love it.

21 drops essential oil blend review

I have a follow up review on 21 drops with another blend. You can read my previous review of 21 drops blends.

This is the pain relief essential oil blend. This little roller bottle increases circulation while helping to reduce pain, stiffness and inflammation. My 7 year old is going to LOVE this. She has 2 extracurricular activities and one of them frequently causes her to get pain when she falls. I don’t like administering ibuprofen on a regular basis, so this is going to be awesome for her. She loves the feeling of taking control of her own body and getting herself better, so this will be added to my mini first aid kit in her bag.  

The ingredients in this blend are 100% natural essential oils of Ginger, Helichrysum, Juniper, and Myrrh mixed in 100% organic jojoba oil
 - Ginger helps with circulation
 - Helichrysum aids bruised areas
 - Juniper helps ease discomfort
 - Myrrh helps soothe muscles 

What I love is 21 drops does NOT use Parabens - Sulfates - Synthetic Fragrances - Synthetic Dyes - Petrochemicals - Phthalates - GMOs – Triclosan, Nor is it animal tested. Their carrier oil is 100% organic jojoba oil which makes me more comfortable using it.

Essential oils work by Inhalation and Topical application. Check out 21 drops site for more information. The oils are meant to be used on pulse points such as temples, wrists and the back of the neck.

Application is recommended by rolling on in a circular motion, 5x each, to wrists, temples, and directly on to area of concern. Inhale deeply after each application. Reapply frequently and throughout the day to help reduce discomfort and distress.

The smell of this oil is a citrus scent to me, and I love it! Its better than all the mass produced menthol products out there that do nothing to heal. You can learn more about essential oils on 21 drops site here. 

When using on children do your research as some are not recommended for children. I personally do not recommend ingesting EOS with some of the recent information that I have come across.  You can find a guide for EOS here.

If you are interested, 21 drops has also been seen in Martha Steward Living, The Today Show, and The Oprah Magazine.
