My husband is always having problems finding a belt that fits him comfortably. Well, with Mission Belt Co., no need to look any further! My husband has been wearing his Mission Belt to work daily and he loves it. It’s easy to use and he is able to adjust the belt when needed. We received the Mission Belt “Iron” in black leather. The silver tone of the buckle is given a vintage look to it and yes it’s actually leather! The buckle is heavy yet not intrusive.
The Mission Belt Co. has a special belt with no holes. The underside of the belt has these rivet looking teeth that when you slide the belt it clicks into spot. Normal belt holes are spaced at 1 inch apart, the Mission Belt adjusts to ¼ inch. When it’s time to take off the belt, you just push the release lever up and slide the belt out of the buckle. Easy right!?
These belts are also interchangeable with leathers and buckles! Mission Belt Co. offers 2 different widths of belts. Need another reason to like the Mission Belt Co? Check out this picture!

Oh that OUCH when you eat something cold or hot. Perhaps you ate something too sweet or acidy. Crest Sensi-Stop Strips are here for you! Just open up the strip and apply it to the sensitive area. It will give you instant relief and you will get up to a month’s protection.
How do they work, you ask?
“Crest Sensi-Stop Strips are thin, flexible strips that contain dipotassium oxalate desensitizing gel on one side. “
It goes on to say the strip makes a barrier that helps to stop the pain by blocking tubules. They will last up to 1 month and many people find relief when they first apply the strip.
My husband has the sensitive teeth in our family. He was quite impressed with this product. His sensitivity is toward sweet foods. He found relief quickly after reading the directions and applying the Crest Sensi-Stop. It also made me happy that after the strip is applied you are able to use your regular toothpaste.
We drink a lot of water. We are currently on well water. The water itself is fine, however, we have to add salt since the home has an on-demand water softener system. It is the salt in the water that makes our water no-so-great. That is why we were excited to be offered a NewAir WCD-110SS Water Dispenser. No more carting home 10 1-gallon water jugs since we can use!
The NewAir WCD-110SS Water Dispenser is a nice little appliance to have in our home. It has a stainless steel front and black sides and back. It has a slim size, which makes it a great choice for smaller homes or areas within the home. We put ours just off the kitchen in the master suite hallway since there is no room in our small kitchen.
NewAir WCD-110SS Water Dispenser Specs
~ 33.65 lbs.
~ 1-year manufacturer’s limited warranty.
~ Removable plastic drip tray.
~ Hot & Cold water dispenser
~ Two push button controls – the hot water has a safety regulated “hot water” push button, making it safe for children.
~ Light indicators.
~ Hot water 176°F – 203°F.
~ Cold water 41°F – 50°F.
~ Compatible with 2-gallon, 3-gallon or 5-gallon bottles of water.
~ Features a stainless steel water tank which delivers a plastic free taste when drinking both hot and cold water.
~ UL Certified.
~ Easy no installation; simply remove it from its packaging, add a water bottle and plug in!
We really like having the water dispenser. It saves on boiling a kettle of water, making it very convenient to get a cup of tea or hot chocolate. It is holding up well under our family of ten’s use of it. Granted the younger children cannot get hot water unless they have two of them to maneuver the child-safety feature on the buttons! It is easier for the children to get a drink and a lot less mess too, unless of course they overfill or spill, which they have yet to do, thankfully.
The only thing I really do not like about the unit is the fact that the buttons to dispense hot and cold water, as well as the child-safety button are all plastic. I fear they will eventually snap or break under heavy, extended use. I hope I am wrong but only time will tell. We have had it for nearly a month now, but we did limit the children’s use until this past week when I knew I would be doing the review.
Overall, the NewAir WCD-110SS Water Dispenser has been a welcome addition to our home and I am looking forward getting much use out of it.
Ripple or Sorbet? Cool Recipes for Frozen Treats
On a sweltering hot day, there’s nothing like digging through the freezer to find a chest of buried, icy treasure hidden in the freezer – especially if it’s homemade. It’s now possible to make your own ice cream in almost any flavour imaginable!
Case in point: Perry’s have brought out a chicken wing flavor, while rumor has it that it is possible to indulge in a pint of cheeseburger flavored ice cream in Venezuela. We’re not suggesting you try to top such taste insanity – instead, you can cool off with the following delicious treats, which the kids can help to make!
The Healthy One: Frozen Yogurt
For a lower calorie treat, try yogurt as a healthier base for your flavors rather than milk, cream and sugar. Bung some natural Greek yogurt, honey for sweetness, and a fruit or two of your choice into the ice cream maker for 30 minutes and await the perfect results. Peach, banana, kiwi and strawberry make for kid-friendly flavors that aren’t too tart.
The Chocolate One: Nutella
Fact: the number of Nutella jars sold in a year could cover the Great Wall of China eight times. Thankfully, for a swirl of chocolatey heaven in your vanilla, you’ll only need about half a cup for this recipe, which should be combined with whipping cream, milk and eggs once the ice cream maker gets going. Add crushed walnuts caramel sauce and banana for a banoffee spin.
The Takeaway Option: Popsicles
Your kids won’t want to miss a moment outside if it’s sunny, so opt for popsicles for a quick-fire cool down. Blend ripe watermelon with lemon juice and sugar and pour into popsicle molds for a healthy snack, or freeze chunks of banana and strawberry on skewers dipped in chocolate for irresistible fruit kebabs.
There are of course an endless number of different flavour combinations to create, so why not do some research, create a wishlist, and start making your own ice cream today! You’ll never turn back to store bought, once you’ve had the first bite….

I thought The Big Book of Symptoms: A-Z Guide to Your Child’s Health
was very informative. I liked the fact that it had both natural and traditional preventives and treatments. I wish it hadn’t had so much of the “take your child to the pediatrician if he/she has such and such a symptom.” I completely understand taking them to the doctor for what you think could become/be life threatening i.e. Leukemia, A Brain tumor, TSS and others like these, but I would have liked to have known what to do in the meantime to ease my child’s symptom(s).
I like that it was written by a mom and a pediatrician.
I found this book to be really informative and easy to read. The illustrations were handy and easy to understand (especially to a non-picture reader like me :)) I loved the 3-in-1 First Aid, Choking, and CPR chart you can take out and hang up, I thought that was a nice touch.
About the Authors

Keeping my iPad mini safe, protected, and easy to travel with is super important to me. My son loves reading books on it and watching movies so it needs to be protected from little hands as well. When I look for cases I look for three main things, functionality, quality, and style. I was very impressed with the Robust & Functional iPad mini Executive Case in Pink PU Leather from The Snugg.
First of all I loved the color of the case. It matches my personality perfectly, I just love pink! When I opened the package I liked how soft and smooth the leather was. To put the iPad mini in I simply opened the side, slid in the iPad, and clasped the velcro strap to keep it secure. It fit nice and snug in the case, I don’t have a doubt in my mind that it would fall out or even shift a little bit. It has a spot for a stylus, which is very handy. The case also has a side pocket and a spot for four credit cards, IDs, or business cards. It can hold everything you need, so it’s great for travel.
I loved how easy it was to fold back the case to create a stand to watch movies or read books. It was so easy my four year old was able to do it on his own.
The Snugg case did not interfere with any of the buttons, camera, or charging ports of the iPad. With each Snugg product comes a lifetime guarantee. Simply register your case through their easy to use website and they guarantee a brand new replacement case if you are not at fault for the problem.
The Snugg offers a wide variety of cases for tablets, smartphones, laptops, eReaders, audio, and cameras. They have many different styles & colors, and offer free standard shipping. If you are looking for a stylish, high quality, great functioning case for any of your technology devices, look no farther than The Snugg. You won’t be disappointed!
My husband said this is the best pillow he has every slept on!
The Sweet Slumber Pillow is 100% cotton quilted with a removable cover that is machine washable. Guess what’s in the pillow? Nope, not feathers, it is shredded natural rubber. Cool, right? This fabulous pillow is hypoallergenic, anti-bacterial and dust mite resistant. Those are great assets in a pillow.
My husband claimed this pillow the second it came in the door. He has never slept well nor found a pillow that is comfortable with him. He tends to wake up with a headache. Since this Sweet Slumber Pillow arrived he has had minimal headaches in the morning and is sleeping much better.
