Re-Play Feeding Essentials Review

Re-Play Divided Plate in Action

*Disclosure-I received complimentary products for the purpose of this review. All thoughts and Opinions are my own.*

Re-Play feeding essentials are made from recycled milk jugs. How cool is that? Their products are also made in the USA. Re-Play products reduce greenhouse gases and save energy. Plus their products are super cute! 

Re-Play Divided Plate

We received the Re-Play Divided Plate in purple which retails at $7.99. It is very sturdy and saves my dinner plates from being broken. My daughter who recently celebrated her 2nd birthday enjoyed some Ice Cream cake in her new plate. 

Re-Play Utensils in Purple

We also received the utensils. Which are great, because I get nervous when my daughter tries to use a regular fork. These utensils are great to learn with. 

Re-Play also has cups, teething rings, bowls and snack stacks. You can check out their shop here.

I like that the milk jug plastic is considered one of the safest, toxin free plastics. I also enjoy brands like Re-Play because they help my family in the movement to "Go Green". I personally do not use a dishwasher but it is good to know that their products are dishwasher safe.

1. Spotlight on Glitter
Give your nails some sparkle if you want a little bit of attention. I love glitter polish. It's fun to play with. I also find it easy to use if you are in a rush.

2. Carefree Mint Green Nail Polish

2. Carefree Mint Green Nail Polish
If you need a lift then catch a ride with this elegant, opulent turquoise nail color that never fails to pick you up. This color certainly is light and pretty. I think my toes would like it.

3. Tropical Fun

3. Tropical Fun
Meant for every day use.  From water to workout, day in and day out, nothing will dull these nails. The gloss is protected with the Ultimate Shield Complex, exclusive to Sally Hansen, designed to help polish withstand the wear and tear of everyday living for non-stop shine. I haven't actually tried this one before. I want to try it now. I've used other Sally Hansen products before and liked them.

4. Latte Nail Colors

4. Latte Nail Colors
This is an opaque, caramel creme color.  Its risky business is the name of the game for the wearer. This color is a little too boring for my taste but everyone has their own style and opinion. Some may like this color.

5. Pastels

5. Pastels
Sexy. Fun. This vintage blue denim color fits perfectly with jeans. I like this baby blue color. I used to wear colors like this when I was younger.

6. Blues/Greens

6. Blues/Greens
Escape with this chip resistant, high shine, long lasting color. This dark color is perfect for a night out on the town. Or just going for cocktails with the ladies. I know I need a mom's night out soon!

7. Blush

Need to skip the salon but get the same results. Get a base coat, strengthener, growth treatment, salon-inspired color, top coat, chip-resistance and a gel finish all in 1 bottle.

8. Nocturnelle

8. Nocturnelle
Deep, dark and rich.  Nothing subtle about nails that look like a dark night sky. Fun for concerts, clubbing, and goes with mostly everything.

9. Reds

A delicious berry tone has a keen, brilliant color. Cherry Berry is feminine, young, and universally appealing to all age groups.

10. Metallics

A collection of layering shades designed to unleash your Bohemian spirit. Sensuous neutrals combine with ethereal textures for an earthy and feminine finish.

JetPens Pen & Eraser Set Review

JetPens Pen and Eraser Set

*Disclosure: I received complimentary products for the purpose of this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.*

JetPens is a web store that sells fine writing instruments, office supplies, and art materials. They have a wide range of products that are often imported from Japan and Germany. Being a blogger and somebody who loves art and crafts, pens are sure to be used often. When I was younger I had an obsession with the gel pens in all different colors. I am so excited to know that I can buy awesome and unique products from JetPens.

Stabilo EASYoriginal Roller Ball Pen

The Stabilo Easy Original Roller Ball Pen is pretty neat looking. It comes with 3 ink cartridges and has a comfort grip. It is nice to hold and writes well. I have never owned a pen like this before. The Special grip is good for kids who have a hard time with holding pens the right way.

Iwako Forest Animal Novelty Erasers

This Iwako Forest Animal Novelty Eraser set is super cute. My children love them! My son, Noah, already took them apart and put them back together. They are erasers but make cute toys. You could decorate your desk with these. Check out the other Iwako Eraser sets, they have other types of animals too.

JetPens has a section for crafts, paper, and adorable pencil cases. You could get gifts here for the children or stock up on funky pens for the home office. Let's say you are doing hand written Thank You cards or invitations and you want to use calligraphy, JetPens has a large selection of fountain pens. 

Do you love unique office items? Are you like me and can't find a pen when you need one?

Jewelbits Subscription Box Review

Jewelbits Box

Jewelbits is a NYC based Jewelry Subscription Box. They hand pick two to three pieces for you every month. You will get beautiful jewelry sent right to your door.

First Step: Choose Your Style

What's great about this is you can choose from three different styles. Boho Babe, Glam Gal, Or Classic Chick. I went with the Classic Chick. You can always change the style if you want to try something new.

Second Step: Pick a Plan

You have the choice of 1, 3, or 6 months for your payment plan. 1 month starts at $39, 3 months is $37, and 6 months is $33 and all are free shipping. You may cancel at anytime.

Third Step: Wait for your Box

Sit back and wait for your awesome jewelry box to arrive. You can also gift the box to somebody who might love jewelry as much as you do.

My Thoughts

Jewelbits Classic Chick Box

This is the packaging on the inside. The jewelry comes in pretty pink pouches. At first look, I'm already excited. I think packaging can be important and Jewelbits does a great job with this. 

Beautiful Bracelets

I love these bangle bracelets! They are shiny and pretty. They are attached and come in the three tone look of silver, bronze, and gold. These would go well with any black dress or even a casual work outfit.

Jewelbits Necklace

This necklace is unique and colorful. I think it adds some fun to a solid color shirt. I love pieces with multiple color because it can go with more outfits.

Gold Earrings & Long Gold Necklace

There was also a gold necklace with matching earring set. I haven't worn earrings in a while but these are really neat. I like the simple circles and the fact they are dangle earrings. The long gold necklace is funky and can go with a classic black dress or even a nice pants suit.

The Jewelbits Classic Chick Box was great all around. All the pieces were lovely. I can wear them during the day and also when I go out at night. My favorite out of the whole box were the bangle bracelets. 

What style box would you get? Have a daughter in college? This would be a nice surprise.

Coobie Seamless Bras Review

Coobie Seamless Bras

*I received complimentary products for the purpose of this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.*

I recently got to try the Coobie Seamless Scoopneck Bra in black. I must say these bras are really comfortable. This is my first time trying them on. I love the colors, black and pink are two of my go to colors for clothing and bras. They feel soft to touch. I have a few bras that have under wires and they drive me nuts. Coobie bras have NO under wire. They are great. 

I have a black, light sleeveless top for the summer that I had nothing to wear under it.  I now can wear it with the black Coobie Seamless Bra. They have a camisole feel to them, which makes them even more cozy to wear. I'll be completely honest and say I don't always wear bras if I am home. I wouldn't mind wearing these all the time. 

The second best part besides the comfort is they are affordable. $20.00 for a bra is a wonderful price. I won't throw names out but I have paid $45.00 for a bra before. Ugh, who wants to spend that much.
