Necklace-Banner

My every birthday, Christmas, Easter and yes, even Memorial Day wish came true the day I found out I was going to have a little girl. Gone were the days of me shopping with my bestie Charity as she was able to peruse the girl’s section of the store and have her arms FULL of frills, bows and dresses galore, while I was “stuck” in the boy section of the store looking for cute stuff, don’t get me wrong. But not necessarily dresses, bows, jewelry, and accessories. JEWELRY!!  I was so ready to shop for jewelry. Yes. I may have squealed like my toddler daughter when I was given the opportunity to check out some jewelry from Lily Nily. I admit it. FULLY.

Lily Nily

What little girl would not look absolutely ADORBS wearing this Princess Carriage Necklace or this Flower Link Bracelet? My favorite parts are the gorgeous shapes, the dainty shapes, the high shine, the gorgeous details…Hmm. There really is not anything I DON’T like about this jewelry!

lilynilyjewelry

And my little girl loves them too! I mean come on! We are talking jewelry here. Every girl loves them, every mom loves to see their little girl wearing them and I may or may not have an issue with only finding the right dresses and shoes to match them…THAT is another topic in itself.

bracelet2

So when it comes to jewelry and your little girl, Lily Nily Jewelry is not just jewelry you pull out for a special occasion, your little cutie can wear it everyday and look simply scrumptious! The nursery rhyme says it all. “Sugar and Spice and everything nice…that’s what little girls are made of.”

Desert Star Fun + Enter to Win

Posted by on Jul 18, 2016

Desert Star Giveaway

I love to laugh. Like REALLY love to laugh. I love musicals, dancing and funny anticdotes. So when the opportunity came up to see a spoof of some of my favorite shows? Well. Let’s just say I was GLEEFULLY excited. It was going to be ACCA-AWESOME. And it most definitely was!

desert star2

Since 1989, Desert Star Playhouse has built a solid reputation for producing hilarious, family-friendly entertainment. Desert Star produces original musical comedies. We offer outrageous parodies of classic movies, TV show, and Broadway hits, with a melodramatic twist! Each show also features a high-energy variety show we call “The Olio” following the play with more singing, dancing and Desert Star comedy. It’s 2 shows in 1! Audience Interaction. Outrageous Parody. Unpredictable Fun.

I decided to take my daughter who literally watches Pitch Perfect at least once a week to our Desert Star experience. The title got her and we were able to see “Perfect Pitch Despicable Glee!”  I will state it here. Run. Do not walk. Get to your computer or phone and buy Desert Start Theatre tickets. You will NOT be disappointed. The actors are amazing and the comedic timing is great! They interact with the audience and as an audience member you get to BOO for the villan and CHEER for the hero. My daughter loved it.

desertstar3

Set in a western theme the theatre itself looks like you have stepped back in time to watch dinner theater at it’s prime. Even the servers are in costume. The food was great (we had pizza) and the drinks a plenty! She has already asked to go back again. Even if it is to watch what we just saw. Which is exactly part of the fun! You will NEVER see the exact same show twice! Whether it be different actors, a different audience or different impromptu jokes, it will always be a great time! With season tickets also available, it is the gift that will keep you laughing all year long. Get on down to Desert Star Theatre! You will pat yourself on the back that you did.

Capresso EC PRO Espresso & Cappuccino Maker – Buy, Try, Love + Enter to Win!

Posted by on Jul 1, 2016

Java. Liquid jo. Café. Espresso. Half caf double shot soy vanilla latte? Call it what you will. But Coffee is one of my favorite things to sip and enjoy. I love the smell of coffee beans and the sound of a cappuccino machine is music to my ears. Yep. I am definitely a Java Jane! J

This? Getting to try the Capresso- EC PRO Espresso & Cappucino Maker? This is like Christmas and my Birthday all wrapped into ONE!

capresso

  • The heavy-duty stainless steel construction makes the EC PRO a standout on your counter and is easy to clean.
  • Its compact footprint of 8″ x 11″ means it won’t take up much counter space.
  • A big 42 ounce removable water container means more espresso and less refilling.
  • The large, integrated cup warming tray on the top of the machine is not only is a great place to show off your special cups. Warm cups keep the espresso hot for a longer time for your drinking pleasure.
  • Front-panel indicator lights show you at a glance when the power is on and whether the “Coffee/Steam” mode is selected.

I have a fairly large kitchen with a lot of counter space, and I love to display this little number. But even if you don’t have a lot of space but enjoy cappuccino like I do, the Capresso- EC PRO Espresso Maker is for you! You don’t have to be a barista to learn the ropes either…however, that being said, I have thought about a part time gig on the side- if for nothing else but the discount! The instructions are very well written and within minutes, you will be on your way to making YOUR cup of perfection. This is said to be an “entry level” espresso machine and it will be great for your at home enjoyment of cappuccino or espresso.

Now, I will admit. It did take me a few tries to get the hang of it, and it will take about 5 minutes for your Capresso- EC PRO Espresso Maker to warm up, so be patient!  Also, since it is a machine with parts, be sure to keep things clean so it will not get clogged (flush the drip tray after use). The plus? It really is easy to clean.

It’s a fun excuse to invite a friend over for a chat, and enjoy your drink of choice. Or enjoy it alone while watching your fave guilty pleasure TV show, or reading a book! The possibilities are endless.  If you practice you may see that this tastes equally or even better than your local café. If you love coffee like I do, the choice was obvious. Buy. Try. Love!

Win It:

One Mamas reader will win a Capresso EC Espresso & Cappuccion Maker!

Kid to Kid Giveaway

One year. Twelve months. Three hundred and sixty five days…You get where I’m going with this. It’s a long time! Especially when this amount of time is associated with your kids. A LOT can and does happen in a year. They grow. They change. They get better. Your tiny little humans can suddenly walk, talk and depending on the age, talk back.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE a good deal. Kid to Kid and I are the perfect match. I get the styles we ALL love, and Mom gets to save some moola.

The concept is simple. Kid to Kid gets that kids outgrow things and unless you are one of the very lucky ones who can pass your clothes on to the next sibling in line – they typically just get sent to a donation store. Why not pass on the cuteness to someone else AND get get some store credit in the process?!

The staff is AMAZING and knows me by name when I come in. Seriously. It’s like CHEERS, but instead of beer…its clothes! And to celebrate they are having giveaways! Everyone who makes a purchase gets a free gift. Everyone. And if you spend $30 or more you will be entered to win a $100 gift card.

Ignite Your Imagination With Tedco Toys + Enter to Win!

Posted by on Dec 18, 2015

Tedco Toys

My kids like to tell me I was alive when the dinosaurs roamed the earth. Well little ones, sometimes I FEEL that way! But that does not stop them from loving me and vice versa. Especially when I can get some time do to other chores around the house while they play. Preferably when they are unplugged from the many devices that seem to be everywhere! Use your imagination kids!!

I was recently introduced to two different toys from TEDCO Toys that not only fulfill mom’s wish to do the dishes without littles underfoot, but also gets my kids imagination going! We previewed and played with the Wild Sci- Lab and Dinosaur Mega Playset.

Wild Sci-Lab

The ultimate science lab! WildSci-Lab brings you 50 wild experiments to get your scientific mind up and running. Experiments include magnum spout, pigment mixtures, yeast farm, ocean waves, rusty iron and many, many more! Provides hours of science learning fun! For ages 8+.

Go ahead and call ME the wild one, but that picture TEDCO Toys has of that scientist CRACKS ME UP!! This is not just a one kit wonder kind of toy. Oh no my friend. This thing has FIFTY experiments that will make your kid scratch his or her head trying to figure it all out. I love it!! We have a science fair coming up at school and my son spent HOURS first looking through the experiment choices to find ideas for his own science experiment. Science = FUN! The WildSci-Lab = ALOT of fun!

Dinosaur playset

This mega set is packed with dinosaur fun! Realistic, poseable, free-standing dinosaur models encourage children to recreate scenes from prehistoric days. High quality models with rough skin textures and detailed paint colors. Set includes 12 dinosaurs which are each 4” to 8 “ high or long. Box includes easy-carry handle.

While my other two kids were busy destroying my kitchen…er making the most amazing scientific experiments in the entire world…I sat down on the floor with my other little to play what my kids like to refer to as, MY TIME ON THE EARTH…hmmm.

Gone are the days of the plastic dinos that look NOTHING like what you would think a T-Rex should look like. This Dinosaur Mega Playset is GREAT! The dinos are realistic looking and the arms and legs move. It comes with it’s own carrier, so when we are done destroying the barbies by trampling them with a stegosaurus, we just put them all back in and away they go! It was fun to quiz my little about what the dinosaurs were called. I’ll be honest. I only knew a few of them, so it was fun to learn a bit myself. I must say I am now and always will be partial to the plant eater Brontosaurus. He just looks so cute!

DIY dino robot

Hands-on creativity abounds with this build-it-yourself Scientific Dino. Solar dinosaur operates on sunlight or can run on the handle generator. The 360 degree adjustable solar panel is highly efficient. Easy-to-control robotic dinosaur moves backwards or forwards. 100% battery-free toy! Ages 8+. The Greenex Series is 100% battery-free eco learning fun that connects the environment to amazing science experiments.Smartly designed, each Greenex kit allows kids to snap the pieces together with ease. Simply snap all key components and modules together to start and then pull apart once finished. Encourages kids to experiment on their own for additional learning. Best of all, each kit can snap to another to integrate functions and double (triple, quadruple) the fun!

And if you have that little one who is a bit crazy and into dinos AND science? Check this out! The best of both worlds! The coolest thing about this DYNAMIC DINO is that is doesn’t even require batteries! You use the SUN! It’s solar powered and can walk backward or forward. Do this. Just power it up with the sun and say the magic words ABRA CADABRA and watch as your child thinks you are the next David Copperfield! You will be your kid’s hero!

So whether you are reliving your days from the prehistoric era, or moving more into this century with not only the introduction of HUMANS, but also science and find yourself in a mad science lab of your own or even combining the two together- have fun! I mean…come on. You KNOW that mad scientist is!
