Review - BESTEK Portable charger universal adapter travel converter

Fantastic charger! We bought this for a trip to Europe. It was awesome! We used it constantly for 2 weeks and it worked perfectly.

Usually we had the following plugged in at the same time: laptop (AC outlet), 2 cell phones (2 AC outlets), mini-diffuser (usb port), 2 external cell phone batteries (2 usb ports), and iPod (usb port). Everything plugged in easily and charged well.

The charger has a built-in fan, which is great for keeping it from overheating. The fan does make a little bit of noise. I liked it for the white noise when we were sleeping. When watching shows on the laptop, it wasn't too loud that it was distracting.

Overall, a wonderful purchase. We highly recommend it!

Review: Graco SnugRider Elite Car Seat Carrier

Absolutely LOVE this stroller!!!

We bought it for a 2-week-long trip to Europe and it was fantastic!

Our Graco car seat clicks quickly into the stroller. Pushing it is very smooth. The wheels turn easily and brakes work well. The parent's tray is great for holding drinks and a phone, wallet, camera, or snack.

There isn't a canopy on the frame, so we used a large muslin blanket to help keep the sun off our baby. We tied one side to the handle of the car seat, and put the other side on top of the stroller handle. Worked like a charm!

The handle is easily adjusted and perfect for my tall husband. It's also padded, which is a great bonus. The frame seems quite sturdy and folds down easily. It's also very lightweight and takes up a very minimum of space. Perfect for us in the taxi, bus, subway, car, and airplane.

It folds fairly easily, though you'll want to practice in advance so you can do it quickly. To fold: on the handle there's a grey button you push with your thumb, while pushing the grey grip bar that's underneath the handle. Then simply fold, and go!

The basket underneath is nice and large, though I do wish it were easier to access. At the front part of the basket there's a flap with velcro and snaps that are fairly easy to unhook for access to the basket. This is great for removing smaller items. Most of the time, however, we found it easier to just remove the whole car seat to get our diaper bag out of the basket.

I love this stroller so much that it's tempting to use it instead of our Graco Dynamo Lite Classic Stroller! Alas, our 3-year-old likes to sit in the basket of the Dynamo while the 1-year-old is in the car seat, so we'll stick with the Dynamo...for now. :)

Review: Purification Synergy Blend Essential Oil

LOVE the scent and how it makes me feel!

We bought this for a 2-week vacation to Europe. Used it in our hotel rooms to help keep the air clean and smelling nice. It was fantastic! It helped both me and my husband feel much calmer and stress free. Our hotel room smelled clean and inviting.

Now that we're home, we still use it several times a week in our bedroom or in the living room to help calm the whole family down. One of my very favorite essential oil blends.

Would recommend it to everyone!

Review - Disney's Frozen

Fantastic movie for the whole family!

Saw this in the theater a couple of times and bought it on DVD as soon as we could! It arrived quickly, packaging was great, and the movie works perfectly.

Thanks! It's made our little princesses very happy.

Now if only we could get the songs out of our head... :)
