Create-UR-Plate Review & Giveaway

*I received the products mentioned below in exchange for an honest review.

If you have been reading my blog then you can tell by now that I adore personalized items. While looking for a way to personalize my daughter's birthday party I came across a site by the name of Create-UR-Plate.

At Create-UR-Plate you can design and customize your own plates. You start by creating your Plate-Able(which is a reusable decal. You can browse their library of designs. They have designs from anniversary and weddings to Valentine's day and Christmas. Once you have chosen your design you then pick your plate size, customize it with your own pictures and text. You are then able to review your creation before you place your order.

What did I think?
I had so much fun making each of my plates. I was allowed to make 6 different designs with 6 dinner sized glass plates.

The order was shipped quickly and it was very well packaged. Each plate-able was on it's own paper. All I had to do was peel them off and apply them to the underside of each plate.

Make sure to keep the paper that they come on. Once you use your plate you will need to take the plate-able off for washing. Don't worry, they are easily reapplied when you are ready to use the plate again.

I chose a design for my daughter's birthday, 2 for Halloween & Fall, Thanksgiving, one to keep for Christmas & 1 to give. Here's what the finished products look like:







I think they turned out terrific and I can hardly wait to show each of them off. I think this is a fabulous gift idea for graduations, birthdays, holidays, etc.

Brite Ideas Flameless Candle Review & Giveaway

*I received a candle from Brite Ideas in exchange for an honest review.


I love the glow in my home at night created by candles. But, since my daughter was born 6 years ago I decided not to use real candles and have opted for the safety of flameless ones. Not all flameless candles are created the same, most are just a plain solid color and no design. I like to decorate my home with items that are different and unique. In my search to find a flameless candle that would suit our decor I happily came across a company called Brite Ideas.

Brite Ideas Flameless Candles are made of real wax, battery operated, have a 5 hour timer and each come with beautiful artwork on them. They offer 11 different designs to choose from so, you are sure to find something to suit your tastes.

Since Autumn is quickly approaching I decided to review the Harvest candle.

What did I think?

I love that they arrive ready to go straight from the box. All I had to do was slip in the 2 AA batteries that came with it and turn it on. It has a lovely, flickering glow just like a real candle. I like the "timer" mode, just switch it to timer and it will automatically turn off after 5 hours. I don't have to worry about wasting battery life and it comes back on the next evening at the same time. If you are worried about any heat that these candle give off, even after several hours I could still touch the faux flame without any problems. It is reassuring to know my daughter won't get burned if she picks it up. I think the candle is lovely and will look great with all of our Autumn decorations going all the way into Thanksgiving.

Buy it:
You can purchase any of their candles by just visiting the website . They are priced nicely at just $15.00 each.

Win:

Violife Slim Sonic and Rockee Toothbrushes Review & Giveaway

*I received the toothbrushes from Violife in exchange for an honest review.
Dental health has always been very important to me. My dad had false teeth at a young age and my mom has always had problems with her teeth. So, I was determined to try to have the healthiest teeth and gums that I could. I love electric toothbrushes but they are not all created equal, I'm always looking for one that I really love. So, I was delighted to have the opportunity to review the Violife Slim Sonic Toothbrush.

Product description:
Price: $15.00
Brush head fits in all Violife UV Toothbrush Sanitizers
Vibrates at 22,000 brush strokes per minute
Compact
Trendy colors and patterns to choose from
Replaceable brush head(1 extra head included free)

What did I think?
I chose the Lavender Glitter color. I love the look of this toothbrush. The fun sparkly color helps to brighten up my morning tooth brushing routine. I like the slim size and how lightweight it is. The size makes it perfect to fit in a cosmetic bag, handbag or it could easily fit in your pocket. The cover fits tight and ensures that your brush head never touches anything yucky or full of germs. I love that it comes with a battery and is ready to go. I have sensitive teeth but the bristles felt just right and did not cause me any problems. I like the the power behind this little brush, it got the job done and my teeth were left feeling super clean.

I want to pass down the importance of dental health to my daughter. One way I like to do that is to make brushing fun. My daughter was excited when she saw the cute little cat on the Rockee toothbrush that Violife sent us to try out.
Product description:
Price: $15.00
Comes in fun bright colors or your choice of Whiskers(cat) or Marley(dog)
Replaceable brush head
Perfectly balanced so Rockee always stands upright
Ergonomic handle
Good for arthritis or anyone who has a challenge gripping a regular toothbrush
Soft bristles for gentle cleaning

What did we think?
I really like that it comes with 2 extra toothbrush heads. It is actually fun to try to tip the toothbrush over. It always pops right back up. My daughter had lots of fun with this. I think it is great because the brush head never rests on the bathroom counter. This brush has definitely made it much more fun for my daughter to brush.

Thanks Violife for making a toothbrush that my daughter enjoys using.

Chewy.com Merrick Bites Jerky Chip Treats Review

*I received the product mentioned below from Chewy.com in exchange for an honest review.


It's August and I'm so excited because I it is time to review another product from Chewy.com. You may remember from my review last month that Chewy offers a huge variety of pet foods, treats and more and they deliver them right to your door. 

This time I was sent the Merric Bites Jerky Chip Treats in the Real Beef Recipe Flavor. 
Product description: 
Price: $5.49
Size: 10 oz. bag
Merrick Bites are all-natural, oven-baked biscuits based on Merrick's innovative and award-winning classic can recipes. They are made in the U.S.A. and contain no corn, soy or wheat. Real deboned beef is the #1 ingredient and these cookies are made with vegetables, fruit and a dash of cinnamon for a special treat for your dog. 

What did I think?
I think it is really cool that these treats look almost like a chocolate chip cookie. The best part as a pet parent is that they are made with such healthy ingredients. I like that these treats even contain 14% crude protein. I like knowing that I am giving our dog "Margarita" a snack that is good for her. But, ultimately it is up to her? Would she eat it? She is a very picky eater. 

What is her verdict? She loved them. She grabbed this little treat and took off to her favorite eating spot and devoured it! She came back and was begging for more. Way to go Merrick! You have Margarita's seal of approval! Thanks Chewy.com for letting us try out another awesome product. 

Buy it: 
You can purchase these treats or browse Chewy's many other pet products by visiting: www.chewy.com
