BeKoool Itch Patch Review and Giveaway

Louisiana has mosquitos the size of chickens! Well, maybe not that big, but they are huge. They seem to hide around every corner and swarm you as soon as you walk out the door. BeKoool had come up with a great product for kiddies. BeKoool Itch Relief Patches are specially made to keep kids comfortable after getting bit by those nasty bugs. This is a great product to keep handy for everyone that has an outdoor family. 

Whether you are on vacation or just enjoying some outdoor time, keep BeKoool handy. These clear little patches cover bug bites and the itch is gone. They stick well to skin and don't have a funny smell. 

My adorable niece was willing to be my model for this review. Poor sweetie had an ant bite. 

One little BeKoool Itch Relief Patch and she felt much better. No icky mess and she could go back to playing in the sand. 
The great part is that it prevents kiddies from scratching their bobos with dirty hands and fingernails. 

Each box comes with 18 patches and can be used for poison ivy, bug bites and any minor skin irritations. 

You can find this great product at Walgreens,, Dollar General and more.

Family Game Night Giveaway

Welcome to the Winning Moves Family Game Night Giveaway!

Hosted by: Savory Savings

Sponsored by: Winning Moves

And a shout-out to our co-host: Giveaway Monkey!

Spending quality time with your kids, family and friends is of increasing importance and a great way to build good relationships and effective communication.  But sometimes, it is just hard to figure out what to do.  What really could a 45-year-old have talk about with a five-year-old for an extended period of time?  How about crocodile teeth?  Or number sequences?  How about the five-year-old telling the adults they are “IN TROUBLE!”?  Family games nights are a great way to have quality interactions with everyone in your family.  And companies like Winning Moves are helping that happen by being the leading producer of amazing games such as Crocodile Dentist, Crazy Eights, Trouble and more!  Krista over at Savory Savings had a chance to review these three fun and interactive games with her family and shared her thoughts in a review post. 
What is your favorite game? I have to admit, I am terrible at Monopoly, but I love it anyway. When my kiddies were younger, Chutes and Ladders was a daily game for us. Sometimes they would change the rules just for fun. Krista is a wonderful blogger that I love working with. 
 She gets to give away some games from Winning Moves to one very lucky winner to grow their family game night collection!
This giveaway is open to US residents, ages 18 and older.  It will run from September 24, 2013 through October 8, 2013 at 11 PM CST.
Good luck!

 has been received or implied for this post. Nor was I told how to post about them. As with any product, your opinion may differ from mine. 

Food Should Taste Good Review

I was sent a variety of bags from Food Should Taste Good. I had never tried these before so I didn't know what to expect. What my family was treated with was these very light and yummy chips. Not only are all of the chips made from real and simple ingredients, but they are cholesterol free! 
We are a family that loves snack foods. There is nothing better than watching a football game and having a plate of chips and salsa. Hubby loves nacho cheese dip with his. These are the perfect chips because they cut out so many bad things. Hopefully that will cross out the cheese dip that Hubby uses. 
Here is a little bit more about the Food Should Taste Good line of products:
·         Our all natural chips are made from real, simple ingredients. The way it should be!
·         All of our chip varieties are certified Kosher and Gluten Free, lower in sodium, and free of cholesterol, preservatives and trans fats.
·         We currently have lots of Tortilla flavors and four Kettle Cooked Sweet Potato flavors. Find all of our products, company information, online store, and much more on our website.

 My favorite of the ones I tried was the Sweet Potato. What a delicious snack! I can snack and not feel guilty about it now. 

There are so many varieties of chips. Check out there website to find out more about:
MultiGrain, Lime, Olive, Cheddar, Kimchi, Chocolate and more...

Autumn Fires by Robert Louis Stevenson

Autumn Fires

by Robert Louis Stevenson

In the other gardens

And all up the vale,
From the autumn bonfires
See the smoke trail!

Pleasant summer over
And all the summer flowers,
The red fire blazes,
The grey smoke towers.

Sing a song of seasons!
Something bright in all!
Flowers in the summer,
Fires in the fall!
Happy Fall!!!

Marion's Vintage Bakery Etsy Store 
Review and Giveaway

As everyone knows, I love Etsy. Etsy is my shopping mall at home. I could spend hours looking through all of the artistic products and dream. I am not an artistic person and I have so much respect for those that are.

I came across Marion's Vintage Bakery one day while looking at homemade cookies. What I found in Marion's store is edible art. Everything is so beautiful and elegant. 

Marion offered to send me a set of her beautiful peach shaped cookies. 
When I received them I was like a kid at Christmas. 

When I opened the box, this cute decorated package awaited me. 
Inside was the most beautiful peach cookies. They were almost too pretty to eat. 

They were as delicious as they were beautiful. These light and airy little cookies would be perfect for any party.
She will have lots of Fall goodies very soon. I can't wait!

Take a look as some of the other edibles by Marion's Vintage Bakery Etsy Store:

These are just too pretty to eat!!!
