Tips to Choosing a #BathroomFaucets

BathFaucet_CapeAnne

When picking a new bathroom faucets, remember that the faucet can make or break your new bathroom makeover!  A new bathroom faucet can make a world of difference in the appearance of your bathroom. If you go to small or too large or a totally different style than the rest of your bathroom, you could lead to something like this and never have guests over!

Picture curiosity here.

First pick your budget! Faucets can range from as little as $25 and get as high as $400 depending on style, finish and brand. Just remember you get what you pay for. If you have a family and your faucet is going to get a lot of use, then you may want to spend a little more for a quality faucet that can withstand the abuse! If this is a powder room that is more for show than use, then a lesser one may be more your choice. Sirius_ZigaZaga-Mid

Then you need to know what style faucet  you are looking for. You don’t want something that is going to shock your guests and family in a bad way when they walk into your new bathroom. You want something functional but the whole idea of a bathroom re-do is to make it look fantastic! So figure out what style your bathroom is and find faucet styles in that category. Most faucet retailers will be able to help you determine which will look best with your bathroom if you are struggling to make a choice. But trial and error usually works best for me!

My Little Girl Needed Glasses- How To Shop Online for Your Next Pair!

Having kids seems to give me the opportunity for a lot of firsts, some good, some not so good! The first time I had to tell someone over the phone there was baby puke on my wall, I sat there for a minute and thought, never thought that would be something I would have said 5 years ago! Anyways with those crazy moments come some good ones that make a big difference in your families lives.

In October my middle daughter came home from school to inform me that she was having trouble seeing the board. Now if you know my daughter this could mean a few things! There could be someone in her way and doesn’t want to ask them to move or she could no longer sit next to a friend in class and she needs “to move” to see better. So I went through my normal questions of what do you mean you can’t see the board? She then said the board looked blurry. Knowing that she had a eye exam coming that week at school I told her to let’s get the results of your vision screening at school and see what they say! Sure enough the next day I was notified that my middle daughter had failed not once, not twice but three times! I then scheduled her visit with the pediatrician to only find out that in deed she would need GLASSES!!

Now for my oldest daughter this would have been a dream come true! She has been asking for glasses for over a year now, so they could match her outfits- even though she doesn’t need them! Never thought it was uncool to have perfect vision! So she is settling for the non-prescription kind from Claire’s! For my middle daughter this means extra responsibility, teasing, names and loosing friends, according to her! She tends to be a little over dramatic when it comes to new things! Any who, after several weeks of begging and pleading that she will look great no matter what she is wearing!

Glasses USA Review 2

After a visit to the Optometrist, I got her prescription and all the measurements that were needed and headed to GlassesUSA.com to order my daughter’s first pair of eyeglasses. Never having glasses myself, these numbers and measurements were like a foreign language to me. I did rely on others, who wear glasses, and the tools available on GlassesUSA to get just the right glasses. With so many choices, I needed all the help I could get.

I first decided on what style frame she wanted by the ones she tried on at the doctors office, this gave me a great starting point. I then took the measurements of the bridge, temple, width, height and total width to figure out what size would fit best. After looking through many different styles, colors and frames, she narrowed it down to about 15 choices we then headed to GlassesUSA.com Virtual Try It Mirror! This is an amazing feature that you can upload a picture of yourself and try on the frames you like! Check out to see if they look good, the shape is right for your face and it’s just neat to see what you look like with each pair before you buy!

Review- Nintendo Wii and 3 games

With the economy still struggling and families still counting every penny, vacations may not be an option this summer for most families. So one thing we are doing this summer is having mini vacations at home. We have planned out most of the summer and we have numerous days of heading to our local YMCA to go swimming, our local parks for a day of playing in the sun and to our local library for a day of learning and exploring new books! These are just a few of the days we have planned but another day is our battle of the Wii (I’ll tell you more about it in a bit)! These are all great ways for our family to save money but still have a fun filled summer vacation.

Nintendo has jumped on board to help families like us make the most of our summer. They are offering you a new affordable price of just $149 for the Wii system, Mario Kart Game and Wheel accessory all in one! They are also offering 4 games for a very low price of $19.99 each for Wii Sport, Mario Super Sluggers, Animal Crossing: City Folk and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. This is a great way to not only help your family get up and stay active while playing games, but to give families a great way to have fun at a low cost!

We had the great pleasure of trying out the Mario Kart game on our new Wii and I have to tell you, it pretty much has been on since we got it! I have had to unplug it from the back of our t.v. to get our girls to stop playing. But not just our girls, my husband comes home from work and yells down into the family room, who wants to get beat at Mario Kart! So this has definalty been a great product for our family!

Battle of the Wii includes a day (usually rainy or too hot days) of competitions on Mario Kart, Wii Sports and Disney Sing It! Right now our favorite is the Mario Kart and even our 3 year old is in on the action! Racing down raceways, bouncing on giant mushrooms, throwing turtle shells at your competition, collecting coins and so much more. It is a very exciting game filled with fun adventures! Our oldest daughter is having a great time playing the Animal Crossing: City Folks as well, she loves creating her own little person who can design their own home, go fishing, buy stuff at the store and meet new friends.

Now we can cross off Mario Kart on our Wii wish list.  What games are you and your family playing on the Wii? I had been wanting the Mario Kart game and the U Draw Game & Tablet, my girls have been wanting the Mario Kart game for ds and the new Nintendo DS XL, but I think they are going to have to wait on those. My husband just seems to have fun with any of the ones we get but I did see at Bass Pro Shop a new fishing and hunting Wii game that we may pick up for Father’s Day! Do any of you have these games? Do you like playing them?

So what fun things do you have planned this summer? Are you going on vacation or are you staying home? What ways do you save on at home activities?

I was provided with a Wii system and 3 games in exchange for this review. No other compensation was provided. My opinion is 100% my own!

Review- Thomas & Friends Sodor Search & Rescue

If your little one loves trains or Thomas & Friends, then they will definitely love the new Thomas & Friends Sodor Search & Rescue! We received this Thomas & Friends Mega Blok set a few weeks ago and it has not been put away since my now 3 year old opened it. She is our lover of all things trains and when she saw the box with Thomas on the side, it took all that she had not to shred the box to get it open!

This set has been so much fun, not just for our 3 year old (recommended for ages 3 and up), but our 6 and 10 year old have been helping build fun contraptions to take Thomas through! As you can see below, this was their latest design! It come with all the accessories you need to make tons of creations; tracks, cranes, curves, slides, landing area for the helicopter and much more!

I think my favorite part of the whole thing is that that big red part is actually storage. That means all the pieces that came with this set can neatly fit right back in the red tote and slide under neath our girls bed! I am all about things having a place and teaching my girls that when they are finished with a toy to put it away. So having a toy that coincides with my idea on clean up, is a great addition!

You can purchase this Thomas & Friends Sodor Search & Rescue for just $29.99 each at Amazon.com!

It’s time for a MEGA blast of fun to celebrate the launch of the Mega Bloks Family Club, a brand new MEGA Brands blog and online community.

>Review & Giveaway- WAT-AAH!- Ends July 31

>

With all the choices out there of kids drinks, it is hard to get them to drink more water. Soda, fruit juice, lemonade, punches, flavored water, all filled with sugar and no nutritional value. My girls are pretty good about drinking water but I do tend to see them “like” drinks that have fun catchy logos on them. So when asked to try out WAT-AAH!, my first thought was what a interesting name and such a fun logo!!
WAT-AAH! offers 4 different kinds of water and each are filled with their very own specialties. They each are made from ultra purified water, has no sugar and tastes like pure clean water. WAT-AAH! Brain also includes kid friendly electrolytes, WAT-AAH! Power includes bone building magnesium, WAT-AAH! Body is just pure clean water and WAT-AAH! Energy includes energizing oxygen.
My girls and I tried WAT-AAH! and I was very impressed. It tastes just like water, no funny tastes, just plain, clean water!! But I think the most important thing was that my girls thought the bottle was so cool, making them want me to buy them more! And that is the whole point right, to get them to drink more water, regardless how I get them to!! They carried that bottle of water around the whole day. They also sported the tattoos around for a few days, as you can see below!! WAT-AAH!‘s interactive site was a lot of fun to wonder around through with my girls, they loved the loud noises and how the boy ran around doing crazy things.
