Paw Choice Dry Dog Shampoo

Giving your dog a bath is such a chore with most dogs. Some stop trying to get away after awhile, but others, like my Willow, never stop trying to escape the terror of the water. She has always been scared of things and water is just another one of those things. It usually takes a lot longer then it really should to get her bathed and whoever bathes her ends up getting a bath as well. So I was really excited to try out a dry dog shampoo. I didn't know they even made it!


This dry dog shampoo, comes in a cool little bottle. You can see into it and it is a red liquid. I was concerned at first that her white fur may be dyed red when I first tried it out, but as soon as I got some of it out, I noticed that it was no longer red, it was now a foam. I thought that was really cool. It looked just like the mousse that I use for my hair, so I knew exactly how to use it.


Even though, this doesn't need water and Willow was just laying on the floor, she still didn't want anything to do with this bottle of stuff we were trying to put on her. The kids had to help me keep her where she was so that we could get it on her. I had to pup and get a lot of this product out to get it all over her. I figured I used a lot of the bottle on just this one washing, but when I looked, it didn't seem like I had used anything out of the bottle.


The smell of this product is amazing. It is a lovely fruit smell, much better then the dog smell that was there before. The smell stuck around for a few days. When I petted her, I smelled my hands, and it was all fruit and nothing nasty, which I really love. Everyone comments on her different smell now when they pet her. I am very happy with this product and even though she doesn't want to lay still, I think Willow likes it as well!

From there, you can find out more about this product, see what other people who have used it, have to say about it, and you can pick up a bottle for your furry friend as well.

PottyCover

Public bathrooms freak me out. I know I shouldn't use the and I never want to, but sometimes, you just can't make it home to your own bathroom or even to a friends bathroom. You never know who has been sitting on them and what std's they could have or even what has been on the seat before you that could make you sick. It never seems to fail, when we go into the bathroom, there are no seat covers. So you try the hover method or the covering the seat with toilet paper method, but nothing is as secure as a potty cover.



PottyCover, of course is what you are thinking it is, they are disposable toilet seat covers, that you can take with you, so you never have to worry about sitting on a strange toilet again. The usual covers you get from public bathrooms, barely cover the toilet. PottyCovers, not only cover the whole seat, with excess, they also cover the front of the toilet, so you don't have any chance of touching the toilet, with your own body, or your clothes.


They come in separate bags, so you don't have to fumble with more then one and you don't have to carry them without a protection. Once you go to open them, they unfold quickly and it is easy to tell which way they need to be sat on the toilet. They are just thick enough for me to feel like they are really protecting me from the toilet, but not too thick, that you can't stick one into your purse, glove box, or even your coat pocket.


Unlike other toilet seat covers, these have a cute design. Obviously, they are only used once though, so enjoy the design while you can. It is nice though, to see toilet seat protectors that aren't bland, boring, and plain white. To me, these could be used for adults or for children. Really, anyone who uses a bathroom at any time could use these.



I found that these work well. They don't rip even if you move around on them, or turn to flush the toilet. They are small in size like I said, and the comfort I get from knowing that I am protected is enough to make me love these.


If you want to check them out, head over to http://www.PottyCover.com or to the PottyCover website on Amazon. From there, you can find out more about this product, see what other people are saying about them, and you can pick some up for your home!

Forest Secrets- Laurie Woodward

The description of this book, really doesn't do it justice. Reading that, I thought this was going to be a horrible book. It really did surprise me though. It took a bit to get into it, within the first probably 30 pages though, I was all the way in.


Basically, there is evil trying to destroy the forest. Daisy, an 11 year old, just moved and is out one day, when something catches her eye. At first she didn't believe what she saw..but then she discovers that she has to be the one to fight the evil.

For YA, I feel like this book is great. The imagination really lets loose with this book. The though of evil trying to destroy the forest, is something my teenager found interesting. She read it first and then insisted I read it. Of course I was going to anyway. But I really enjoyed the fact that she was so exited about it.


I feel like the author went just enough in depth, for me to picture it and feel as if I was there as well. The fear..the surprise..everything Miss Woodward wants to make you feel, I felt. So much so, that looking at the woods behind our home, makes me wonder..what is going on in there.

I don't do spoilers. I feel like it cheapens the experience of reading the book and tying to figure out the outcome as you read. What I will say though, I very much enjoyed the book. The ending was well done and I think we would read more books from this author!


If this sounds like something that may interest you or a young child you know, then head on over to the Forest Secrets product page on Amazon. From there you can find out more about this product, see what other people are saying about this book, and you can pick up a copy!

Taza Pop The Top

We don't drink very often. Socially at best. When we do though, we always get stuck with no bottle opener. It can be so frustrating to want to do something and not be able to, because of a simple little cap. That is about the time that my husband just gets out his knife and opens them for us. He makes it look so easy, I swear I would probably cut myself, just trying to do it that way. Pop the Top is great for me. He may not need it, but I do.





Pop The Top, is such a cool design. Most openers are so boring. They are all flat and look the same. This one though, is a cylinder type shape. It is easy to hold in your hands and pretty much common sense when you go to use it. The instructions are on the box and I love that they included pictures. I didn't need them to, but I know a lot of people learn things better with pictures, then they do reading words, that could get confusing.



Basically all you do is sit this product on top of your glass bottle, you then turn it and pull up. The grooves inside grab the cap and pull them off of their bottles. You don't have to turn it very much or very hard to get it to work, which is great for people like me, with arthritis. They say it is the "easiest bottle opener." It may be the easiest to use, but I have seen some pretty straightforward easy openers. Like the one on our fridge, that you just slip into the groove and pull up.


All in all, I really like this opener. I think I may use it for our vow renewal in May. I am just afraid that it is to cool and may walk off when we aren't looking. If you need a good bottle opener, that is different from others out there, then you need to check this one out.


Head on over to the Taza Pop The Top product page on Amazon. From there you can find out more about this product, see what other people are saying about it, and you can pick one up for yourself. I think it would be great for home, work, and parties!

Cozia Ski Mask and Magic Scarf

Winter can be rough when you don't have a vehicle. You have to do what you have to do though, even if it means walking or biking in the cold and even snow. There are ways to protect yourself from the cold though and I think this set is great for that.



The ski mask fits over the bottom half of your face. I am so use to seeing and owning masks like this, that just velcro in the back, but this one goes on over your head. There is a bit of a smell though, so I suggest leaving it out for a bit before you wear it, so that the smell can possibly go away. There is nothing worse then trying to stay warm, and breathing in a horrible smell and you can't get away from it.






The magic scarf is the same way, not the smell, but how you put it on. It goes on over your head as well instead of tying like a normal bandana. The design is cool and for how thin it is, it really does keep your head/forehead warm. You can wear it in many different ways and I feel like you could use this during pretty much any season.



I actually really like this set. It is made well, looks great, and keeps us warm when we wear them. The only real issue like I said, is the smell from the ski mask. It is a hard thing to get over, but I am sure that one day soon, the smell will go away!



Head on over to the Cozia website to find out more about this product. You can also find it on the Cozia Design Ski Mask and Magic Scarf product page. No matter where you go, you will learn about this set, see what other people think of it, and you can pick this set up for yourself or someone you love!

Akeekah Unisex Bandana Bib Set

Drool...wow so much drooling happens with a baby. You can put them down for a nap in their crib, dry and happy and wake them later, just to find they have soaked through their outfit. Don't even get me started on spit up..that is a whole new level of soaking through. You always need a good set of bibs, and this set is pretty good!




Instead of marketing towards one gender or the other, Akeekah made this set. Some of them do look as bit more boyish then neutral, but I could still see these bibs on both genders. I say they look more boyish, simply because of the designs on them. That is just my opinion though, I am not here to tell you what to put o your baby at all and they would look adorable on both genders.


I love the shape of bandana bibs. They look so cute on little ones. They are big enough for them to grow into, but not overly huge, so they can wear them now. The snap on the back is easy to use, but no so easy for baby to pull off of themselves like other bibs.





These bibs seem to be made well and like I said, they are adorable, both on and off baby. I haven't had any soaking through problems as of yet, and they clean up really easily. After a few times washing these bibs, they still look brand new!




Head on over to the Akeekah Unisex Bandana Bibs product page on Amazon. From there you can find out more about these bibs, see what other people are saying about them, and you can pick up as set for yourself.
