• Jelt Belts

    This is a post that has been compensated by IHelpMoms.com and its advertiser Jelt Belt. All opinions are mine alone.

    Summer is at an age where finding pants for her is so hard. She is pretty little still but has some longer legs so when it is time to find jeans we struggle. They either fit her waist or they fit her legs!

    We’ve tried belts before and then there is a weird gap in the back of her pants and it is just weird and don’t really work out.

    Recently we tried a Jelt belt.

    What is a Jelt belt, you ask? It is a belt made 100% from recycled water bottles. And it has a gripping gel on the inside to grip to your pants! Which works so great for Summer because if her pants are a little too bit it will hold them in place!

    It also has no metal what-so ever on it so you can even go through security without having to worry about taking off your belt.

    And it’s no-show flat buckle is perfect to fit under a fitted shirt with no bulge.

    They have belts that fit men, woman and children, plus they have shirts and hats so go check them out!

    Right now Jelt Belts is offering a 25% discount to anyone using code: MOMS25

  • Good Habits Start Early with Octopus

    This post has been compensated by IHelpMoms.com and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.

    Creating good habits are hard enough for anyone to get down, but when you are little it makes it tough sometimes to remember what has to be done next. There are so many distractions in our day to day life that a little head start never hurt anyone. That is why I love the Octopus watch by Joy.

    With this Octopus watch, I downloaded an app and plugged in the things I wanted Tyler to be reminded about and when I wanted the reminders and we were set to go.

    That way if Tyler gets a little distracted by something in the mornings his watch will let him know that it is time to start getting ready for school. And remind him of each task, such as filling his water bottle, packing his backpack and brushing his teeth. I never have to remind him to eat breakfast!

    The Octopus watch is the training wheels for good habits®. And I love that it points kids in the right direction. Now we don’t deal with the confusion of what time to start getting ready and what has to be done next. When he gets home from school we have about 10 minutes for him to get settled and find a snack before he gets his reminder to check for homework and get in some extra reading time.

    The first icon-based watch that empowers kids by teaching good habits and the concept of time. I love that it fosters responsibility, independence, and self-esteem.

    My handsome boy all ready for a day of school!

    I don’t have anything set for during school hours because I don’t want the watch to become a distraction for him while he should be learning. But he still loves wearing it!

  • Favorite Things {SIC Cup Edition}

    This post has been compensated by IHelpMoms.com and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.

    I love coming across awesome products. And these SIC cups from SIC – Seriously Ice Cold – are amazing. I have had my SIC cups for just a couple of weeks and I am obsessed. Zach asked if he could have one of them and I haven’t let him yet because I can’t decide which one I am willing to part with.

    Anyone else out there like me with a cup obsession? If you do, try these SIC cups, you will not regret it and you’ll immediately have a new favorite cup. One of my favorite things about them is how long they keep things warm or cold. The last few weeks of soccer have been pretty brutal with how cold it was during practice and games. I loved that I poured hot tea into them before I leave the house and long after I get home my tea is still hot!

    Since I most always have a cup of ice water near me I love that my 30 oz tumbler will keep ice for 24 hours! Luckily I haven’t had a reason to need ice in a cup for 24 hours yet, but I am thinking ahead to summer days at the lake with my ice cold cup of water while I am playing in the hot sun. (Yes, I know it is only November and I am dreaming of the hot sun… It is the only thing that will get me through the cold winter that is ahead of me! Guys, it is 18 degrees outside as I type this, so let a girl dream!)

    These are the three that I have:

    A 27 oz SIC Bottle, a 12 oz wine/coffee/cocktail cup and the 30 oz tumbler. Any guesses which is my favorite?

    Check out my Instagram page where I will be sharing which cup is my favorite!

    And how fun are these colors? Salmon, Seafoam blue and white. I love everything about them and I’m drooling over all the other fun colors!

    Feel free to check them out the SIC cups in the Ihelpmoms Holiday Gift Guide as well —> HERE

    A few of my favorite things about the SIC cups:

    • They stay super hot or super cold for ridiculous amount of hours! (24 hours ice cold is awesome!)
    • There are a ton of fun colors like salmon, orange, lemon and sea foam blue.
    • They fit in your cup holders – even the bigger cups!
    • Lifetime warranty – Do I even need to say more?
    • These cups don’t sweat!

    Something else that I thought was cool is that these cups are powder coated, not painted. Which makes them less likely to scratch or chip. And the surface is perfect for putting a decal on…. I’m already trying to decide what I want to put on it!

    Right now you can get a 15% discount on your own SIC cups by using code: ihelpmoms

    So now that you have the code, which cup do you want to get? Leave me a comment below! 

     

  • JORD Wood Watches

    Recently I was approached about doing a review for JORD Wood Watches. I didn’t immediately say yes because I don’t typically wear a watch, but after looking at their website and all the watches, I realized that I needed one of these beauties in my life.

    But believe me, I was so excited to get the cool watch I chose in the mail.

    jord-wood-watches

    I received a women’s watch from the Cora Series and got the Zebrawood and turquoise wooden watch.

    When it first came the box was so light that I was wondering if there was actually anything in it. Because these unique watches are so light weight it really did feel like I was holding an empty box, but when I opened it I found this amazing watch.

    It might seem silly, but I love the way the watch opens and closes. There is a spot on each side that you press and it opens right up.

    I really wasn’t sure how I would feel once I actually had the watch on, because like I said earlier, I don’t typically wear a watch. I haven’t worn one in years- But I love it. Because it is so light weight I don’t realize it is there most of the time. (No pun intended)

  • Purex plus Clorox {Giveaway}

    The Purex® brand provided me with a sample of Purex® plus Clorox 2® detergent in exchange for a product review. However all the opinions expressed here are my own

    It is no secret that I love the warm weather. The hotter the better.

    During the Spring our area experiences all types of weather. We see rain, snow, hail and lots of sunshine. And because of that the kids are always outside playing. Some of their favorite activities include swinging, sliding, rolling down the hill and playing in the sandbox.

    Purex_Plus_Clorox_2

    With the kids spending so much time outside there are bound to be stains on their clothes. A couple of weeks ago Summer went outside to play and I almost asked her to change her pants. She was wearing some adorable blue/green color skinny jeans and I should have known better, but I let her go. She was not outside even 5 minutes and she comes in with huge brown dirt/mud stains on BOTH knees! I wish I would have taken a picture but of course, I didn’t. I immediately took them off of her and ran down to the laundry room to put some of the Purex plus Clorox 2 on the knees and let them sit for a few before washing them.

    Because I hadn’t used Purex plus Clorox 2 before I really wasn’t sure this staining fighting detergent would work. But because it is safe for colors I knew I could give it a shot and see how the stain turned out. When I took the pants out of the wash I was expecting to still see stains. I was prepared to have to wash a second time but I was pleasantly surprised to see bright clean jeans!
