Go Mama Go Designs Wonder Bumpers


You hear it all the time how unsafe it is to use bumpers in your cribs with baby. Most moms use them as decorations to make the cribs cuter and a little more personal for their babies. Well I want to share with you a awesome product that not only makes your crib super cute it will never jeopardize your child's safety. They are Wonder Bumpers from Go Mama Go Designs. I choose to review the BlueBirds set. The pricing will depend on how many rails your crib has. Ours has a solid back headboard so there are no posts on the back. For a set of 38 the retail price is $219.00 that set comes with 38 bumpers, white minky sheet, matching crib skirt, and luxurious toddler blanket.


 Mine came in packs of 2 and here is how it looks.
I fell in love as soon as I opened the package.

The first thing i noticed when i opened them up out of the package was their minky texture. They are very well made and use a zipper to be put on.
Here is the start of them being put on.
The Bluebird design with white ruffles and trim gives any nursery a vintage look. This peaceful print offers you a sweet, nostalgic feeling. Their white reversible side makes it a great bumper to create a all solid look or mix with other prints such as the Blue or Pink Damask.

These are perfect and look better than i thought.
Here is a closer look of them.
They come in many other colors and you can choose girl, boy or gender neutral. This one was on the gender neutral ones. You can also turn to the white side and make your own patterns with them.

Check out the review I posted on their Teething Guards HERE. Here is a pic of that also with the wonder bumpers.

    Maggie Bags Review & Giveaway


    I am a bag collector and I have a whole shelf full in my closet. I love them in all colors, shapes and sizes. I'm excited to share with you this AWESOME bag from Maggie Bags. Who is Maggie Bags you ask? I will give you some info from their site.

    The Maggie Bags legacy began with our parent company, Tennessee Webbing Products. Tennessee Webbing has kept millions of yards of narrow fabrics out of landfills since they began operation in 1991. Our desire to do our part for the environment by finding creative new uses for materials originally made for other purposes has been the Maggie Bags mission since the beginning.
    Maggie Bags launched in the spring of 2009 with a handful of retailers and a little online store. Today our products can be found in hundreds of retail locations across the Unites States, many online retail stores and in our own online store.

    About Our Products

    Maggie Bags are made using genuine automotive seat belt webbing built to meet government safety standards to protect you for the life of your car. Due to these high standards, millions of yards of seat belt webbing are rejected by automakers each year. Maggie Bags uses as much of this rejected seat belt material as possible in our products. Availability of rejected seat belt webbing can vary greatly therefore some webbing must be purchased new to meet the growing demand for our unique and stylish bags. However, our commitment to use re purposed seat belt webbing whenever possible remains steadfast.
    The Maggie Bags team is continually looking for creative ways to do our part for the environment. We are proud that the construction of our handbags is a simple cut-and-sew operation. This helps to minimize the environmental impact of manufacturing new materials and eliminates the need for typical recycling processes that consume large amounts of energy and other resources.

    I was sent their Wine Tote and it retails for $62.00. It is beautiful and here it is.
    The Tote of Many Colors Wine Tote has two elastic inserts perfect for carrying 2-Liter soda bottles, wine bottles, and yoga mats. And it's big enough to pack all the rest of your belongings, too!
    This bag is so roomy I just love it. I cant wait to use it for a picnic. I recently used this bag for a hotel overnight stay and had a bottle of wine with me here is how the bottles look in the elastics.
    This bag measures 23" L x 9" W x 15" H and is nice and huge and I just love it. I cant wait to take to our family trip in Florida for the beach. These bags are so special and wait to you see the giveaway item!!


    One lucky TTGG follower will be winning a Campus Tote retailing for $85.00 in the color of your choice.

    How to Cleanse and Heal Your Body with Spices and Plant Extracts


    People have been doing total body cleanses for centuries to rid their bodies of the build-up of toxins. Toxins are in everything around us and most of what we consume; they exist in our environment in the air we breathe, unfiltered water we drink, foods packaged, processed, or produced with pesticides that we eat, and the chemicals and medications that we ingest. It doesn’t hurt to detox every once and a while and eliminate the toxins that have built up in your blood and liver over time.

    Cleansing with Plant Extracts:

    Milk thistle, thistle of the genus Silybum and daisy family Asteraceae, can be used to treat some liver ailments including hepatitis, cirrhosis, damage caused by toxins, and some gallbladder disorders. The extract of milk thistle has been recognized for many centuries as a “liver tonic” that can both prevent and repair damage to the liver caused by toxic chemicals and medications. Milk thistle can even lower cholesterol levels and reduce the growth of cancer cells in breast, prostate, and cervical cancers. The extract of milk thistle can be taken in the form of a capsule and be purchased online.

    Cleansing and Healing with Spices:


    Throughout history, spices have perpetuated trade, insighted exploration, and started wars for a reason: spices preserve and flavor food and have medicinal properties. Historians estimate that cinnamon has been used to treat diseases as far back in time as the Ancient Egyptians. Cinnamon aids in digestion and helps lower blood sugar, cholesterol, and triglycerides.

    There are other spices that have healing properties as well:

    • Cayenne - Cayenne’s healing properties originate from its heat which comes from capsaicin. Capsaicin has been proven to prevent sinus infections, act as an anti-inflammatory, kill cancer cells, and ease the pain of ulcers.
    • Cloves - Cloves are powerful in the fight against bacteria and fungi. Cloves can kill intestinal parasites and be used to treat diarrhea, ringworm, hernias, and even toothaches.
    • Ginger - Ginger is another popular spice known for its ability to heal gastrointestinal ailments. Ginger helps alleviate morning sickness, nausea, indigestion, gas pains, diarrhea and stomach cramps. Ginger is diaphoretic and therefore makes you sweat. Because of ginger’s diaphoretic properties, it is often used to treat fevers. It stimulates the cirulation of the blood, helping to rid blood of toxins and loosen phlegm from the lungs to help treat asthma and bronchitis.
    • Tumeric - Tumeric, a close relative of ginger, can be used on cuts and wounds because it is an antiseptic and an antibacterial. Tumeric also helps detox the liver and has anti-inflammatory properties that help treat the symptoms of arthritis.  

    Use some of these wonderful spies to cleanse your system during any season. Since it is currently winter for most of us, spices are an excellent way to keep your body healthy and strong. Detox your body during the winter and you’ll be ready for spring to arrive!
