Love Homemade gifts

How amazing is Instagram and Facebook for keeping people connected? I just love that I am able to stay in touch with so many friends from college that are not living near us. Recently a sorority sister posted a picture on Instagram of burp cloths she made for her daughter with an elephant print on them. Being cheeky I said she needed one with a Ladybug (our sorority symbol!) She said she did not have a fabric store near her, but if I sent her a ladybug print she would make me some! Right to the fabric store I went and found a few fabrics I liked and sent one away.

Here is what came back to me!

How wonderful are these!!! There are 4 burp cloths and a bag to keep them in! I was so touched by these that I wanted to share them. If you are interested in how to make them, just let me know:)

More fun project ideas coming up in the following weeks:)

Ideal Balance Dog Food Review

Wow, I have been away for a while now! But I have a number of post coming up in the next few weeks as well as some giveaways so please keep reading:)

First, I would like to tell you about a new product for my fur-baby. Recently we have had the chance to try Hill's Ideal Balance Dog Food.
According to the site:

Hill's® Ideal Balance™ Grain Free Natural Chicken & Potato Recipe Adult dog food provides grain free natural ingredients perfectly balanced.
  • Fresh chicken #1 provides lean protein to help keep slim and trim
  • Contains potatoes, which are naturally gluten free for healthy digestion
  • Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids improve skin and coat, guaranteed or your money back
  • No grain, no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives

Our little girl loves this food. I always try to find food that is all natural with no colors or preservatives, but this seems to be taking the cake with my little furry one. I also love that you can get this in many flavors. We like to try to give our girl a little bit of variety now and then. If you are looking for a new food for you dog or cat, I would highly recommend checking out Hill's Ideal Balance Dog Food (they have cat food too). 

** No compensation was received for this post, I was sent a bad of food and treats from Crowdtap to try and review.

OregaSpray and SinuOrega Review

Don't you just love when you get to sample a product that comes at just the right time? Well that is what happened with our house a few weeks ago. I was sent some OregaSpray and SinuOrega to try. Both have come in handy after a long and snowy winter.

First the SinuOrega, this has been great with the killer pollen season we have been having. This has been so helpful getting me through the pollen season the last few weeks. Here is the info from the website:

SinuOrega combines a unique blend of the powerful essential oils of sage, bay leaf, clove, and oregano in a wild, purified sea salt-water base. Health practitioners agree: a saline-based nasal wash is the best approach for cleansing the nasal passages as well as sinuses.SinuOrega is the only completely natural nasal spray with the power of Oreganol P73. Safe for everyday use, yet not addictive as some products are. Cleanse for better health and then take a really deep breath. Use this natural saline plus wild spice ­­oils spray to cleanse polluted cavities. Great with the P73 oil taken under the tongue. With SinuOrega you get the powerful action you need with no drowsiness.

The company also sent me the OregaSpray. At first I was not really sure what I would use this for, then I read the information enclosed and found out it helps keeps ticks away! This was a huge godsent as I had been finding ticks on my toddler for days before this came. Every time she went outside they came in with her! I also like that I can use it on the new baby as well. Here is the information from the site:

OregaSpray is the only completely natural, edible, multipurpose spray. Made with completely natural emulsified oil of wild oregano P73, oil of wild lavender, oil of wild bay leaf, and oil of clove,  making it the ideal • vegetable wash • air cleanser • hand cleaner  • toothbrush spray • food cleaner • environmental spray • odor neutralizer • kitchen and bathroom cleaner • pet deodorizer • insect repellant  • body or foot deodorant • skin toner • nursery spray • public disinfectant • breath freshener. Always take OregaSpray with you.
