Review: Roba Dolce Gelato and Sorbetto

If you are tired of the boring plain bowl of ice cream, I have a treat to introduce to you that will tickle your taste buds! I was recently asked to do a review on Roba Dolce Gelato and Sorbetto. They’ve used real family recipes that had been used for generations to create authentic Italian gelato and Sorbetto. They have a variety of flavors from Dark Chocolate Chunk Gelato to Blood Orange Sorbetto. I would have to say that the Della Coconut has to be my favorite. The flavors and textures are smooth and to have the real coconut bits is a pleasant treat! Click here to check out a little bit about the company.

Review: “Yo Gabba Gabba!: Music is Awesome Volume 2.”

To help promote the Yo Gabba Gabba There’s A Party In My City Tour we are doing a review on the new CD “Yo Gabba Gabba!: Music is Awesome Volume 2.”   This CD fits right along with the TV show that currently comes on Nick Jr. This is a CD that is for the whole family. It provides your child with a whole array of different type’s music. I’ve really enjoyed doing this review, we listen to this CD in the car and we always have it on repeat! I know it is hard to explain exactly how much your child is going to love this CD, so I’ve made a little video of my girls enjoying the songs.

As you can tell the girls love Yo Gabba Gabba and can sing along to every song! As a Mom and a fan of Yo Gabba Gabba I would recommend this CD to anyone looking for a fun way to entertain their children be at home or in the car, this is the way to go!

My Makeup Attempt

Last weekend I had the best opportunity ever. I was in my cousins wedding! I was honored that she even asked me to be a bridesmaid. We have been through so much and have shared so much together. We have been so close over the past years that you would think we were sisters. Not only do I cherish the friendship and bond we have I also look up to her as a mom and a women. She has been through so much over the years that it would make the strongest person weak. She has shown me that there is always a light at the end of your tunnel. God will never put anything on you that you can not handle. Back to her wedding, I will have to say it was beyond beautiful. It was a wedding that made you cry, smile, and laugh all at once. For the wedding I had the chance to test my makeup applying skills. I did my own makeup (instead of going to the MAC counter like I planned). I used Orglamix:Vetiver, Orglamix midnight, Orglamix Solar, on my eyes. I was going for a subtle smokey look and I think I accompl…

Photo of the Day

I haven’t posted any recent pictures I have taken. I’ve been so busy with school work, housework, and the kids that I haven’t had a chance. Then there was my cousins wedding that I was in so it took a bunch of my time as well. So this weekend my oldest daughter had a football game. My youngest is not old enough to cheer, so allowed her to be the mascot for the team. She is very good at it and knows all the cheers, it’s just she is so shy she wont stand up there with the girls. Well, this past weekend is the first weekend that she wanted to take part with them. Even though she didn’t cheer, she did get down there with them to pose a bit for some pictures. After the pictures she did stand there for the rest of the game with them. Next year I hope she will have the courage to fully participate with the girls and join right in! This is just one of the pictures that I love so much! She really gets into the posing with the pom-poms. I wish I could have been on the track with them, if I was …

Born Free Review


I was offered to do a review for BornFree and I was sent a Twist N’Pop Straw Cup. Born Free’sTwist n’Pop Straw Cupsare a really great option for older toddlers who are weaning off a sippy cup. This cup offers an easy to use, BPA-free straw cup for your toddler. The top of the cup is easy to tern to expose the silicone straw. From my experience these cups are not 100% spill proof, if it is held upside down it does leak out slowly. I like this cup for the simple fact it is cute, easy to grip for my daughter, and a step above being just a sippy cup.  The cup is offered in 4 colors, Blue, Green, Pink and Yellow and retails for a very reasonable $7.99. You can find the cup as well as the full line of Born Free Products on the B orn Free  site.

Product Info: BornFree® BPA-Free plastic, 14oz. (400ml) Twist N'Pop Straw Drinking Cup features a hygienic pop-up straw mechanism for comfortable mess free drinking. 14oz body interchangeable with BornFree® bottles and cups. Suitable for 12+…
