No more digging in our purses to find a ringing phone and missing calls! No more leaving your phone on some remote table or counter top!

No more forgetting phones, and leaving them places (home, office, restaurants, cabs etc.), only to have to backtrack to find it. No more mini panic attacks!

and the other end attaches easily to the earphone plug of a smart phone, mp3 player etc.

Get help refinancing

Are you moving or looking to buy a house and are saving money? Then you should check out streamline refinance rates. All of the information that you need is right on their web page. They have FHA loans and the requirements need to get approved. They also have refinancing options if you are already a homeowner and want to try for a lower interest rate. Moving is hard work so let them make the transition as easy as pie. Even if you are not interested right now you should keep them in mind for your next move or home buying experience. They are also BBB accredited. If you do not like filling out things online just give them a call on their 1800 number and talk to a live representative.

Green Smart Puku Bag Review

This is a great review to go along with earth day coming up. This review is from Green Smart they carry eco friendly sleeves and bags. I was sent their Messanger Bag in the style Puku which retails for $49.95. It comes in 3 different colors and the one shown here is in black.

The look of a messenger, but, the access at the top. A full-width rear pocket, two end pockets and a front zip pocket put pockets on all 4 sides before you even open the bag. Under the flap you'll find the organization pocket and inside you'll find a well sized main compartment with a full padded laptop bay as well (fits up to 15.4"). You'll never lose anything again in this compartment rich messenger. 30 plastic bottles were never put to better 2nd life use.

The Puku is an antelope found in the wet grasslands of Southern Democratic Republic of Congo and Zambia. When scared, they repeat a shrill whistle sound. Puku are crepuscular, as they are active in the early morning and late afternoon.

We name our products after endangered animals. In their support, we donate 10% of profits to non-profit organizations helping to create a greensmart planet.

However, in the unlikely event that you find a defect in materials or workmanship, we will repair or replace the bag. We believe that you don't have to sacrifice good quality for eco-friendliness. Being greensmart means expecting no less.
Giving plastic bottles a second life.
All fabrics used for the GreenSmart Bottles 2 Bags are derived from 100% recycled plastic bottles.

How a plastic bottle became your bag

What makes B2B Green?
The fabric in this product, both the exterior and interior, are derived from 100% post consumer recycled plastic bottles. This process is the end point for the process which begins with the collection of bottles, which become ground up, washed to become fiber, spun into yarn and woven into our fabrics. The overall process also uses less energy than making polyester out of virgin chemicals.
I love this bag it has so many different pockets to use. It is perfect for me when i bring my lap top on location to photo shoots while I am taking photos. It makes my experience complete. I would recommend this bag and their products to everyone what a awesome to be apart of.

Camilia Teething Medicine review and Giveaway

This is a teething product review and giveaway. This is called Camilia teething medicine and it retails for $7.99 for a 15 dose box.
For a parent, when that first tooth pops up, it is like seeing the first flower of spring—a new milestone, a Facebook status update! However, the cutting of teeth is different from other childhood milestones in that it isn’t a one-time occurrence, but rather an ongoing process, sometimes lasting up to three years.
Camilia 15 - leftAnd while the first tooth is a photo opportunity and a special notation in your baby book, the rest can just be, well, uncomfortable for baby and for mom. So it’s important to find a teething relief medicine for your child that is safe, easy to administer, and actually relieves teething pain instead of just masking it. Many parents have found this solution inCamilia®, made by Boiron®, world leader in homeopathic medicines.
Camilia is a homeopathic medicine that works naturally and safely with the body to relieve teething pain without side effects or risk of overdose. It’s a one-step teething solution for pain and irritability that’s easier than the two-step process that some parents use for treating teething pain (a short-term topical numbing agent applied frequently throughout the day combined with a longer-lasting anti-inflammatory at night).
Camilia’s sterile, single-use liquid oral doses are pre-measured, easy to administer, and worry-free; they do not cause numbness, drowsiness or an upset stomach. The single-use doses are also extremely convenient; keep them in your diaper bag, car, purse, etc., so they’re ready to use as needed. They contain the following three natural, plant-based active ingredients that work together to relieve pain and restore the peace:
- Chamomilla 9C HPUS* - Relieves teething pain accompanied by irritability
- Phytolacca decandra 5C HPUS - Relieves painful gums
- Rheum officinale 5C HPUS Relieves minor digestive disorders associated with teething
Camilia can be used for children ages one month and older, and parents can dose as frequently as every 15 minutes. With Camilia, there’s no risk of overmedicating, drug interactions, masking of other symptoms, or numbing your baby’s gag reflex. It is made without benzocaine, dyes, sugar or preservatives, and it is tasteless.

Bummas Cloth Wipes Review & Giveaway

This is a review and giveaway from Bummas. Swap your commercial wipes for some eco-friendly, soft, terry cloth diaper wipes that will last beyond the days in diapers. The creation of Bummas came about when we had our first baby boy. When your first arrives, you are given all kinds of advice:
"Use the wet commercial wipes, don’t use the wet commercial wipes, use gauze; use whatever is handy to block the pee; use another diaper to block the pee; don’t use that, use this; use powder to dry them off, don’t use powder-it contains talc and studies have linked talc to cancer.”

The one thing that was never mentioned was how to dry our little guy’s “stuff” off after the clean up. Our baby’s bum was just way too wet to put a diaper back on--and blowing down there until you’re blue in the face just wasn’t working. Thus Bummas were born. A soft absorbent, luxurious baby cloth to soak up all the wetness.

  • Eliminates the use of talcum powder.
  • 100% Cotton - Woven Velour Terry Cloth.
  • Variety of color combinations for nursery themes.
  • Handy 5” x 7” size. Won’t pill, shrink, or fade. May need a little trim after washing.
  • Wash in like colors before use. See Warranty here.
  • Durable. Just throw them in the wash and use again.
  • They will last until your little one is out of diapers and beyond!  
  • I was sent their The Wild Ones set which retails for $15.00.

    The Wild Ones
    One of each...just for fun.

    These are super soft and feel so nice. Even my husband was really impresses with these wipes. We will definitely be adding more of these to our stash!
