Squatchi Review and Giveaway CLOSED

You may be wondering what exactly is a squatchi and how would you use it.  I was wondering the same thing myself when I was first contacted for this review.  I am now happy to tell you that a squatchi is an at home shoe sizer that is made specially for children ages 0-12.

I love the idea of having an at home shoe sizer.  It is a quick and convenient way to find out my child's shoe size and it will save me a lot of time in the future when I am out shoe shopping.  I don't know how many times I have found the perfect pair of shoes at the best price and I have guessed at the size only to have to return the shoes back to the store because they didn't fit.  Now I can use the squatchi to find out each of my children's shoe size before I go out shopping.  I can take their measurements with me and shop while they are in school.  How convenient is that!  I can take my time looking and not have to worry with the "are we done yet" comments or the "uh mom" sighs.       

I like the squatchi because it is made of a durable and washable hard plastic.  I can even write on it with a permanent marker and keep it as a growth chart for my children.  This is a fun way to track their growth and also assure me that the shoes that I buy for them will fit them.

The squatchi is easy to use and it comes with instructions printed on it so there are no papers to keep up with.  The best part is that squatchi is made for moms by moms and it is made in the U.S.A.

You may find the squatchi on amazon and on as well as a few select brick and mortar stores.

Giveaway Time:  One of my readers who enters this giveaway through the rafflecopter form below will win a squatchi of their very own. Good Luck!

Dress Up Your iPhone

I am excited about the release of the New iPhone 5 and I have been in search of accessories for it.  During my search I found an easy to shop, online site called Mobile Madhouse.  Mobile Madhouse not only carries iPhones but they also have cases, covers and other accessories for iPhones as well. 

I like to dress up my phone to make it match my personality.  I find that a stylish case helps me to do this.  Mobile Madhouse has many cases to choose from.  They have cases that are traditional solid colors such as white or black and they also have other fun colors such as blue, green, pink and hot pink to choose from. 

This is my favorite case at Mobile Madhouse and it is on sale for £3.90.

You may find this iPhone 5 case at Mobile Madhouse.

I like accessories for my mobile phone because it helps me to identify which phone is mine and accessories help me to stand out in the crowd.  I like to make my phone my own and to help do this I would add a fun Apple iPhone 5 Mini Stylus Pen to it.  My favorite one from Mobile Madhouse is below and it is on sale for £1.90 right now.

You may find this Apple iPhone 5 Mini Stylus Pen at Mobile Madness.

Mobile Madhouse offers free delivery to the UK mainland on all orders that are over £100.  While you are browsing their website be sure to sign up for the Mobile Madhouse newsletter so that you can be among the first to hear about their new products and special offers.

Bows-N-Ties For The Men In Your Life

I am a member of Tomoson and they have teamed up with Bows-N-Ties for this fun review opportunity.  I have been sent a navy blue and gold striped tie by designer "Cavallieri" so that I may complete an honest review of their designer products.

Picture is from the Bows-N-Ties website.        

I love the "Cavallieri" navy blue and gold striped tie that we received from Bows-N-Ties.  This tie is great for any occasion that may come up.  I can see my son using it for the homecoming dance at his school and he may even need a tie for a band concert or honor banquet.  I can also see my husband borrowing this tie for a business meeting or maybe even a wedding or funeral. 

I like Bows-N-Ties because they sell handmade ties that are woven from the finest Jacquard silk.  I know that these ties have the pattern woven in the fabric and they are not printed on.  This will provide me with a professional looking tie that will last me for many years to come.

If you have any dressy occasions coming up be sure to check out Bows-N-Ties.  They are an online only shop and this helps them to keep their prices down.  You will find ties that normally sell for $50 to $60 reduced to $24.90 or less at Bows-N-Ties.  I am happy to offer you a code for a 20% store wide discount in case you would like to shop at Bows-N-Ties.  The code is TR239YU and it expires on October the 19th, 2012.

Disclosure:  I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

As we know, Christmas will be here before we know it.  Each year I start my holiday gifts list and then I wonder how in the world will I be able to pay for this all at once.  This is why I am glad to hear about the free layaway plan that is being offered by Kmart this year.

Right now is a great time to put your Christmas gifts on layaway at Kmart.  They are offering Kmart's Big Layaway Giveaway.  There is one layaway giveaway per store per week every week from Septemeber the 9th, 2012 through November the 17th, 2012.  This makes a great incentive to place those gifts on your list on layaway.   Plus you will also have the chance to win some great prizes at Kmart as well!  To me, that is a win - win!

I like that Kmart layaway will help me to get my daughter those much sought after Barbie items that she wants this year.  With the no minimum item or transaction amount at Kmart, I am able to put both the big and small items that she is requesting on layaway this year.   Kmart even offers an online layaway payment option.  This will save me gas and unnecessary trips to town.  I like that there are no service fees attached to the Kmart layaway plan also.  Kmart layaway is available year around and it is nationwide.   Now that is convenient!  

This Barbie dream house will be the first item that I put on layaway at Kmart.  Will you take advantage of this great offer from Kmart this holiday season?
