Febreze Candles - Fill your home with freshness!

It is the first candle to feature an advanced odor-eliminating core and has a variety of fresh scents to compliment any room in your home. Scents include Apple & Spice Delight, Vanilla & Refresh, Linen & Sky, Meadows & Rain and Spring & Renewal.

You will love the freshness of the new Febreze Candle! I used it in our family room which is next to the kitchen. Anytime I cooked or chopped vegetables, the candle eliminated the odor and left a fresh & clean scent. My candle was Apple & Spice Delight scent and the aroma was a blend of berries, baked apples, cinnamon spice and vanilla - which smelled great. The candle also created an inviting atmosphere and received many compliments from my family.

Gloves In A Bottle

Skin care is very important to women. I am always searching for products that are healthy for my skin & adds moisture to it which is why I was very delighted to hear about Gloves in a Bottle. It is a new shielding lotion that rapidly absorbs into (and bonds with) the outer layer of skin creating a protective layer while retaining the natural moisture from within. This makes it the perfect dry skin care product!

Gloves In A Bottle does not wash off, but comes off naturally with exfoliated skin cells. It was made to protect against the drying effects of repeated hand washings or high exposure to water and detergents.

My hands actually felt hydrated, refreshed and smoother when using Gloves In A Bottle over the last few weeks. The shielding lotion lasted for up to 4 hours. So after 4 hours, I would wash & dry my hands and reapply for continued protection. The end result was my skin looking and feeling great all the time!

The lotion itself is greaseless, non-sticky, fragrance-free, hypoallergenic, completely safe and non-toxic. It is perfect for doctors, dentists, nurses and other people who need to wash their hands a lot and need their skin protected. Gloves In A Bottle is used and recommended by hundreds of dermatologists as an effective dry skin treatment.

Doodle Doo Designs - Fun Fashions for your Funky Little Chickens

Doodle Doo Designs understand your children's expressive lives and the charming reality of parenthood. Every parent can appreciate the feeling of desperation while his or her child drops limp to the floor in the middle of the shopping mall and starts kicking and screaming. A shirt that says "Daddy's Little Angel" does not accurately describe those moments - but a Doodle Doo shirt that says 'I Think I Feel a Tantrum Coming On' can bring humor to the situation! With sayings like "Queen of the Crib," "Miss Behaving," and "What Happens in Play Group Stays in Play Group" every parent can stop, smile and know that their child is not the only one who is misbehaving!

Brianna had the opportunity to wear a Doodle Doo shirt recently. Her shirt had the saying "Rise 'N' Whine" which I know all parents can relate to with those early morning awakenings. She either wants something to drink, to get in my bed or some attention. It was interesting because all of the parents in my family did smile when they saw her shirt.

Doodle Doo Designs shirts are made with 100% Combed Cotton and are very soft. They are available in sizes 3 months - 6T and most of the shirts fit a little snug so it is best to go a size up.

Get your Doodle Doo Designs shirt online or by visiting a store near you!

*Free Shipping on Orders over $50

Looking for ways to protect those precious baby knees in style? Check out Dittany Baby’s SkidPants!

They are the perfect accessory to any baby’s outfit. Aside from the look - which can count as being visually stimulating for baby - they are also very practical. SkidPants protect little legs from rug burn, chilly AC drafts and cool outdoor evenings.

They are great for baby's knees that often suffer while learning to crawl and make excellent buffers between skin and the floor as babies stumble while learning to walk. Effective and convenient (because they do not interfere with diaper changing), they keep baby safe from other dangers such as cold weather and the UV rays of the sun.

Whether you are raising a little surfer dude (try the aloha pattern), a precious princess (strawberry shortcake pattern), a future astronaut (space walk pattern), or just want to keep baby matching (solid colors), there is a fun and fashionable SkidPants just for your little one. Additionally, this one-size-fits-all-accessory is available in several different fabrics, including Organic Cotton, New Lightweight Cotton and Fuzzy Lambswool, making it wearable year-round!

SkidPants have become an instant hit with mommies across the country, including one mommy who knows a thing or two about style. That’s right, glamour icon Gwen Stefani made sure her son Kingston, the reigning monarch of Hollywood baby royalty, learned to crawl and walk in SkidPants.

So keep your baby safe and in style with SkidPants!

We Believe in Girls

Mattel and Barbie has recently launched a new site called We Believe in Girls. The site focuses on what it takes to raise a girl today, and how we can best support today's girls as they move through childhood to young adulthood.

As girls today grow up too fast and often skip past the simple joys of "girlhood", We Believe in Girls aims to give parents a voice about the state of girls today. Parents can participate in polls as well as weigh in on discussion forums about societal pressures their daughters face everyday. The poll results will then help shape the content of a global, 10-country research study this summer. Everyone is invited to participate, from moms and dads to teachers, academics, social commentators, behaviorists - anyone who cares about girls' well being. They want to hear your ideas, opinions, points of view - in short the unfiltered truth!

Barbie herself has been a 48-year icon of girls' childhoods, alternatively adored or critiqued based often our views about girls, their play, their bodies, role-modeling, and their self-images. In addition to collecting real advice from real parents, the website will be augmented with relevant articles, website links and an engaging array of diverse parenting points-of-view from around the world.

I believe it is very important to support this effort! Your voice will be heard and you can listen to the voices of others about raising happy, healthy girls and to help them achieve their dreams. I encourage all of my readers to join the discussion!
