Holiday Gift Guide: Emojiez Emoji Erasers and Teeny Toys

Posted by on Dec 7, 2016

As a mom I have learned to read the faces my kids make at me. They can vary at times from pure joy in getting the treat they wanted at the store, to pure disgust as I make them at least TRY broccoli for the first time. Regardless of the situation, they have an emotion on their face and are not shy to show it. And now? My kids can literally have a conversation with EMOJIS via their cell phone or other electronic device. EMOJIS are everywhere!

So it should be no surprise to any mom why EMOJIEZ ERASERS and TEENY TOYS were such a big hit with my kids. It took their love of EMOJIS to another level with great erasers and toys to love and play with.


The erasers are brought out at homework time and are not only functional but fun for the kids. They have 12 different ones, so not only will your kids NOT be bored, but you can have a few at a time and let them “earn” more fun characters. They work great, and my kids may/may not make mistakes on purpose just to use their cute EMOJIEZ ERASERS! I love how functional they are and are seriously one of the only things that do NOT seem to get lost in their trek to and from school. These are coveted items!

The EMOJIEZ TEENY TOYS go along with other small toys they have. It is fun to see the different toys come into play and the EMOJIEZ TEENY TOYS are always on point with their emotions! They have SIX different characters, my daughters fave being the cute little monkey!


Sometimes kids have a rough time expressing their emotions, if my “keen mom sense” is not on point, my kids will literally arm extended put an EMOJIEZ ERASER OR TEENY TOY in my face with the appropriate emotion they are feeling. ALRIGHTY then…got it. Thank you!

We’re all looking for those toys that not only serve a purpose in the education of our kids, but ones they will actually LIKE. The EMOJIEZ ERASERS and TEENY TOYS did not disappoint. Fun for the kids, fun for the mom when my kids open up, I would give them my biggest EMOJI SMILEY FACE ever!

Chipex: Make Your Car Beautiful Again + Enter to Win!

Posted by on Dec 7, 2016

I am a SUV driving mama. And I LOVE my SUV. It is pretty and red and since I spend so much time in it, I always want it to look its best. Inside and out! Well, the weather here in Utah has begun to change and winter is here. This means lovely snowcapped mountains, warm fireplaces…and chips in my car!! It never ceases to amaze me how many “dings” I uncover after the salt from the roads is washed off my car every other week (it seems) during the winter months. I ALWAYS find a new little blemish! Seriously. What was this SUV driving mama to do? Get Chipex. That’s what!

Chipex touch up kits are exactly what you need to make your car look its best. If you’re sick of your car suffering at the hands of road rash, stone chips, scratches and other minor paintwork damage, using Chipex will let you forget about them and take pride in your car’s appearance again.

Using paint that completely matches your car’s original surface, you can use our kit to cover those irritating scratches, chips and markings until they’re no longer noticeable. Our kits are easy to use, and come with all the accessories and instructions you’ll need to restore a perfectly smooth finish to your car’s surface – including clear coat lacquer to ensure your handiwork stays in place.  Our paints also condition your car’s surface to protect it from rust, and from more paintwork damage occurring so easily next time – so worrying about paintwork damage will be a thing of the past.

Simply tell us your manufacturer’s colour code, and we will begin formulating your perfect, colour matched paint, backed with our 100% colour match guarantee

I actually have looked into getting my car a facelift of sorts by having it repainted. UM….NO THANK YOU! The cost was more than even I wanted to pay for my SUV baby. Sorry SUV. So when I heard of Chipex, I thought the only thing I had to lose…was those blemishes! My main concern was making sure the color matched. My SUV is a redish in color? But not a cherry red. Not an apple red. But still it’s red. I absolutely was BEYOND impressed with Chipex and their way of matching my SUV color to a “T”. It is not the easiest color to match, and yet they did. They will even guarantee it.

The Chipex Guarantee

  • 100% Colour-match guarantee
  • Treats stone chips & scratches
  • Fast, simple & safe to use
  • Enhances vehicle resale value

Who doesn’t want to not only add some years to your vehicle, but some pretty as well? Get it looking like new again, without emptying not only your wallet, but your bank account as well! I also loved that I could do this myself. I did not have to pay for someone to come to my house (kinda weird) or drop it off at a shop only to wait a day…or three to get it back. I can do this myself, and its quick and easy to use. Done. And DONE.

How is YOUR car looking? Does it need a little facelift of it’s own? Try Chipex and like me, your will be driving down the road with your head held a little higher. Cause you and your car? Will be looking GOOD.

National Geographic Kids books of Heroes and Heroines

Posted by on Dec 7, 2016

A few months back we had one of my favorite holidays. HALLOWEEN! I always love to dress up with my kids as we do a “family theme” but I typically will do an easier costume for work. This year, has been quite a doozy for me and I needed to feel my inner heroine. I decided to go with Rosie the Riveter. What an amazing symbol for my girls to learn about. It was a great way to tell them about history and what women can accomplish when they have a common goal. It was fun to check out some articles online and read about her.  I was emulating her for Halloween- I wanted to get her story right!

You can imagine how excited I was when I read about the National Geographic Kids books of Heroes and Heroines and saw ROSIE on the cover! My kids are already fans of National Geographic Kids books, so when I saw these, well. Let’s just say it didn’t take any super human strength on my part to grab them up!

The Book of Heroes is available for purchase for $11.25 from Amazon.

The Book of Heroines is available for purchase for $11.06 from Amazon.

Both The Book of Heroes and The Book of Heroines retail for $14.99 each and are great gift books for children ages 8-12.

National Geographic Books of Heroes/Heroines

  • Discover the true stories of superstars, war heroes, world leaders, peacemakers, and other gutsy gals who changed the world in The Book of Heroines. The Book of Heroines highlights heroes such as Mother Teresa, Marie Curie, Misty Copeland, Tina Fey, and Emma Watson.
  • Discover the true stories of superheroes, rebels, world leaders, action heroes, sports legends, and many more daring dudes in The Book of Heroes.
  • The Book of Heroes highlights heroes like Galileo, Sitting Bull, Michael Jordan, and Stephen Hawking.
  • Although the word “hero” has many meanings and many people can be called heroes in real life or fiction, in these books, heroes tend to share seven stupendous qualities:
  • Heroes are courageous
  • Heroes do the right thing
  • Heroes have compassion
  • Heroes are competent
  • Heroes are inspiring
  • Heroes never quit
  • Heroes leap to action

My kids definitely love to read, and these were immediately devoured. I watched as they read and saw how their faces would show different emotions, awe, amazement, empowerment. I could FEEL them thinking they too could be a heroine. And they can! What better way to teach them this valuable lesson than from actual people they can relate to! I now get a history lesson each time they pick up the book and read to me about a hero or heroine they have come to love. My absolute favorite thing about National Geographic Kids is the way they can keep my kids entertained and educated with each story. And they are not only heroes and heroines of old, my girls recognized some of their favorite actors and were thrilled to learn more about them.

Every kid needs a hero/heroine (aside from their mom and dad of course!). Why not let them read about some of the many in the world- and gain the attributes that will make them a hero/heroine too!
