GoodNites Underwear Undercover Mission

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of GoodNites for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Bedwetting is a nightly battle for many parents!! I was given the chance to join this mission and test the GoodNites underwear. It was a wondeful mission!  We would call it a success! The Goodnites have a fit like real underwear, kept the bedding dry and come in cool designs!

 

 photo goodnites.jpg

 

GoodNites® Underwear are the most absorbent nighttime protection for boys and girls ages 4 and up. They're designed to keep bedding dry all night while the discreet new fit keeps them hidden under PJs. GoodNites® Underwear not only offer comfort for sleeping, they help them maintain a sense of privacy and self-esteem until your child outgrows bedwetting. With GoodNites® Underwear, there’s no need for a child to worry about wet sheets and other disruptions. GoodNites® Underwear have gender-specific, cloth-like outer covers that look and feel like underwear. Inside, there's a discreet, absorbent pad that draws wetness in, away from skin. The stretchy sides offer a comfortable, snug fit. Leak guards provide discreet all-night protection. They are latex-free and contain no lotions.

 

 photo goodnites3.jpg

My little friend loved the cool designs and the fit of his Godnites. We took the 3 day challenge and he woke up dry and the bedding was NOT wet in the morning! Yippie! They work great, no leaks, even when they get really full. They dont rip or tear, I just slide them off in the morning. If they stay dry, can even be reused a few nights, they hold up great! Overall, great product, definately recommend, little buddy says their comfortable, and doesnt feel like a diaper

THE LAST BULLY - HUGO THE HAPPY STARFISH



Happiness Begins With Respect

Hugo is a little starfish and so it’s not surprising that in this story he comes across several bigger fish in the ocean. Sadly, they are bigger fish with the wrong attitudes – they are bullies! After seeing his friend getting bullied, Hugo decides enough is enough. He forms the Anti-Bully Club and teaches the bullies a valuable lesson about respect.
By working together as a group, Hugo and his friends manage to show the bullies that there is always a bigger fish in the sea and that happiness comes from respecting others not bullying them.

By working together as a group, Hugo and his friends manage to show the bullies that there's always a bigger fish in the sea and that happiness comes from respecting others, not bullying them.
‘THE LAST BULLY’ is a confidence-boosting book for children, showing them that being different is OK and the best way to deal with bullies is to tell someone about it.

The key theme behind the HUGO THE HAPPY STARFISH series is that building character based on a positive attitude leads to a happy, self-confident and successful human being. I have written this exciting series of children’s books to help educate children about their feelings, their attitude, their choices, and the consequences that follow. 


Through his adventures, Hugo learns many valuable lessons of character, life skills, and ecological alertness – all amid the backdrop of a magical underwater world and mystical islands. In Hugo, children, parents, and educators will discover a lovable and engaging role model with whom they can identify. Each book offers a themed vocabulary to introduce the Spanish language to the reader. Each book also comes with a number of worksheets which are downloadable at no cost on their website

The illustrations were great!

My review book was even autographed~ I feel so special :)

Cadbury High Tea Party~ #CadburyHighTea

I was so excited when I received the Cadbury High Tea Party host email!
 I live in Texas and it has been in the 100's this summer! 

The party box included fancy fascinators and hats, ICE CREAM and a tea set!
I quickly called all my buddies and invited them and their kiddos over for an ice cream and tea party(the kiddos chose to drink the citrus tea punch):)!

The kiddos enjoyed the ice cream and punch, swam and jumped on the trampoline for hours!. They had a very fun "tea" party. We played games like Read your tea leaves, teaspoon race and pass the hat:) The kiddos were so excited with all the fun and games and left with a fascinator or hat of their choice to remember the party! At the end of the party I  held a raffle for the tea set!  The winner was one happy momma! Thanks for coming over gang!
 please note: my kiddos are the only ones pictured. For the safety of the children attending the party I don't post their pictures. 
Don't my kiddos make some great models...LOL
They look happy to be my models don't they..

The ice cream was a BIG hit with everyone!
The favorite at the tea party was the English Toffee.
There are many flavors available of the ice cream bars~
These are the flavors my party guests got to taste test:)

  • Cadbury™ Caramello™: Creamy Blue Bunny® vanilla ice cream is swirled with caramel sauce and dipped in rich, creamy Cadbury milk chocolaty coating
  • Cadbury® English ToffeeCreamy Blue Bunny® toffee ice cream dipped in thick, rich Cadbury® milk chocolaty coating with toffee pieces
  • Cadbury™ Vanilla Chocolate: Creamy Blue Bunny ® vanilla ice cream is dipped in thick, rich Cadbury milk chocolaty coating
  • Cadbury™ Royal Dark: Creamy Blue Bunny®  reduced fat vanilla ice cream dipped in thick, rich Cadbury milk chocolaty coating.

Doesn't that look good?!
That is the Cadbury® English Toffee Ice Cream Bar

The tea set was really nice touch to the tea party!
The parents commented on how the party supplies complimented each other!

What a perfect combo - Cadbury™ Ice Cream Bars and summer - yummy!
Fun times were had by all!

Purex Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar

I am  Purex insider!
Although I was not chosen for this promo by Purex Insiders to review the Purex Fels~Naptha Laundry Bar I decided I just had to try it so I went and purchased a bar, well make that 3....LOL


Purex® Fels-Naptha is a laundry bar that works overtime to remove your toughest stains. 

Relavant Links
Purex Fels-Naptha is a powerful laundry bar that works overtime to remove greasy, oily stains, perspiration, and ring-around-the-collar. With over 100 years of removing America’s stains, you can rest assured that this laundry bar knows how to tackle your toughest stains.
All you’ve got to do is rub the stain with a wet bar of Purex Fels-Naptha and let it sit for a few minutes. Then wash your clothes as you normally would and say farewell to tough stains for good.
FAQ~

I did not use it to clean stains or anything like that because I had a use in mind for those 3 bars I bought~

It makes GREAT Home made Laundry detergent!!
Here is what you need:

1 4 lb 12 oz box Borax (2.15 kg or 76 oz) found in the detergent isle
1 4 lb box Arm & Hammer Baking Soda (1.81 kg) found in the cooking isle
1  box Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda 55 oz (3 lb 7 oz) found in the detergent isle
3 bars of Fels-Naptha soap, found in the detergent isle
2 small containers of Oxy Clean or store brand Oxy Clean (try to get about 3.5 lbs total (1.58 kg)) found in the detergent isle.
You should be able to find all of these items at your grocery store.

**Use 1-2 Tablespoons per load. I know that does not seem like enough but this recipe does not have fillers like the store bought detergent so you only need 1-2 Tablespoons.**
This detergent is fairly mild smelling, it is not over powering. If you love a strong scent you may have to add a fabric softener or laundry crystals to each load. You can find laundry crystals in the detergent isle.

Start out by grating your Fels-Naptha soap just like cheese. You can use a food processor or just use your hand held grater, what ever you have. Those of you with an HE washer may want to run the mix through the grater again to get an even finer mix.

**Don't worry the Fels-Naptha will dissolve in your washer even if you only use cold water
Toss all ingredients in a 5 gallon bucket lined with a garbage bag. This part makes your whole house smell great. Once everything is mixed store soap however you like. 
The recipe makes about 2 gallons worth of detergent
Wasn't that easy? 
I was reading other bloggers post about this detergent and it has lasted them 9 months to a year!
Wow! Thats only $22 for a YEAR of detergent!

Thanks to Being Creative to Keep my Sanity for the recipe

Purex Fabric Softener Dryer Sheets

As a Purex insider I get some great items to review!!


The latest item I was sent to review is the Purex Fabric Softener Dryer Sheets! Now these are not JUST for the dryer!!. I have used them as air freshener for my car and the kiddos' bathroom. I have even put a couple at the bottom of our trash cans for a better smelling can..LOL
I like the smell of the sweet Lavender the best!

New improved formula with 3X the fragrance!

Who knew that one little sheet could do so much? Purex Fabric Softener Sheets don’t just reduce static cling and leave your family’s laundry soft and smelling fresh: They can also keep your whole house smelling fresh! Just choose your favorite fragrance and tuck a sheet in hampers, in the linen closets, and any other laundry storage areas.
What scents are available?

Mountain Breeze

Heighten your senses with the refreshing outdoor scent of crisp mountain air and springtime floral blooms.

Sweet Lavender

Relax and renew with the calming scent combination of freshly-picked lavender and sun-soaked lilies.

Ingredients

Dialkyldimethyl Ammonium Methyl Sulfate, Fragrance
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Purex has greatly improved the Dryer Sheets, adding three times more fragrance, and great static cling reduction. The smaller box is also at a more affordable price point. 
I found them at my local Wal-mart for JUST $1.47 for a 40 count box!!
These New Purex Dryer Sheets work even better than the 120ct versions!

Purex FAQ about the dryer sheets~
Everyone asks ~ can you reuse a dryer sheet??~ This is Purex's response~ 
You will get better softening and static control using a new sheet with every load, as most of the active ingredients are used up in one use. 
Reusing a sheet will not achieve the same results, but will not damage your laundry or machine.
 Make sure to store your dryer sheets in a cool, dry place. 
Purex recommends ~not storing them on the dryer, in the heat, or near a heat source, 
they can sometimes stick together. 
We do not recommend using dryer sheets or liquid fabric softeners with children’s sleepwear or other flame retardant fabrics, as ingredients in these products may reduce flame resistance. Try Purex Crystals for Baby as a safe fabric enhancer for children’s laundry.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`
Add freshness and softness throughout your household with Purex® Fabric Softener Sheets!
