Who Needs A High Chair When You've Got @CozyCover Portable Easy Seat?

As I've mentioned in the past few months...we have a new baby girl that joined our family in the beginning of January.  
Having a new baby in the family is so much fun!  
It's an extra person to love on!  
An extra person to watch grow & change!  
An extra person at our family dinners, etc.

I was not paid to feature this post!  All products for this review/feature were sent free of charge by the company.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinion about this product.

Since it's been a few years since we have had babies in the house, finding a convenient way to accommodate our niece when she comes to our house for dinner...I had to get inventive!  
OR actually, I just needed to find the right company to help me out! 
Cozy Cover has a product called a Portable Easy Seat
What is so great about this product?  
FIRST OFF...it's a portable high seat!  Because it's mainly made of fabric, it folds up into a perfect little travel pouch that fits into any diaper bag or purse, or could be easily stored away in a home until it's needed!
Secondly?
It's super easy to install and use!  
It literally takes seconds to put it over the seat back of most kitchen chairs!  All you do is cover, tighten and snap it into place!   Then it's ready for baby to sit, enjoy a meal or be entertained in (of course being closely watched)...when you are busy getting dinner ready, laundry folded, etc.
I used our daughter's baby doll as an example (clearly the doll is much to small for this chair), which is perfectly suitable for a baby ages 6 mos and up, that is able to sit upright on their own.  So it will be a few months before our niece begins using this, but I'm so excited to have it for her!
THIRDLY?
The best part, it's completely washable, so if you use it out at a restaurant around germs...or baby spits their baby food all over it, you can just throw it in the washing machine and it's back to "ready to use" condition again.
I LOVE THIS IDEA!  Now, we don't have to have an actual high chair in our home, to have our niece (as she gets older) enjoy a meal with us without having to be held the whole time or to have her parents bring a high chair (feeding chair) with them!  
This product would also make an amazing baby shower present for a first time parent.

THE PRICE IS RIGHT TOO...it's under $20 for a product that you're going to use over and over again!

3 Ingredient GLUTEN Free Peanut Butter Cookies #MAKETHEM

My mom used to make peanut butter cookies and she told me that the recipe was the easiest one to remember EVER!!  

I was not paid to feature this post!  No monetary compensation were provided for me to post about this simple recipe.  All products used to bake these cookies were purchased on my own behalf.

Wanna know why I've never forgotten it and have never had to write it down?

There are literally only three ingredients to the entire makeup of the cookies and they are RICH, delicious and GLUTEN FREE too (for those who have gluten intolerance).  

My oldest daughter just made a batch tonight, so it made me want to share it with our readers, so maybe your house can smell as good as ours does tonight...should you choose to make them too!

SUPER EASY PEANUT BUTTER COOKIE RECIPE:
1 Cup Peanut Butter
1 Cup Sugar
1 Egg

NOT EVEN JOKING...that's it!  You mix them together, scoop balls onto the baking sheets, use a fork to make the marks on the top and then bake at 350 degrees until the edges just start to brown.  If you feel feisty, you can add a cup of chocolate chips (mini ones work great), or top with a Hershey Kiss.  

TADA...you're welcome!  YOU WILL LOVE THESE!  Your kids will LOVE THEM TOO!  And trust me...if you have a gluten issue and are looking for recipes to expand your baking goals...add this to the list!

Doggy Diapers & Nine Months Old Already - Where Does The Time Go? #PuppyUpdate

Our little girl, our HARLEY QUINN, is nine months old!  

I was not paid to feature this post!  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my experience with our dog, her coming into heat or the supplies I had to purchase on my own accord to take care of her.
For the past few weeks, she's been acting funny!  
Not wanting to eat (I've really had to coax her)...
Being really clinging & protective to me (especially when people want to cuddle)...
Having a bit of separation anxiety when I have to leave the house for work or errands (that's the face she gives me)...

And two nights ago, I got the answer to why!  
SHE IS IN HEAT!  I've never dealt with a female dog in heat before, but it explains her snappiness, her over protectiveness and even her not wanting to eat at times.  
She's become a WOMAN!  
Since this is my first experience, I headed to PetSmart immediately to get her what we needed (diapers with ruffles and disposable liners) to make sure that she is taken care of during this time (still not sure how long the bleeding will last) and to keep our carpets and house clean too.  Despite the RUDE PetSmart cashier, who scolded me for letting her come into heat before getting her fixed & not getting her fixed at 4 mos when she gets all her puppies fixed, I got what I needed and got her acclimated to wearing her diaper when she is not in her crate or going potty.
It's pretty stinking cute.  She's got a ruffle butt!
All in all, she's becoming a great dog!  
Super obedient, wicked smart and JUST DOWN RIGHT BEAUTIFUL!!  
She is so photogenic...I can't stop snapping pictures of her!
So there's your puppy update...YOU'RE WELCOME!

Cupid Inspired Nails & Lips with @SallyHansen and @RimmelLondon

I can't believe Valentine's Day is next week!  
Like I said in my previous post, it seems like it was just Christmas.  
I love VALENTINE'S DAY!  
An extra day and reason to spread some love and sweetness to your friends, family and spouse/significant other makes my heart smile!

All products for this feature were sent free of charge by the company.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinion about these products.

Because I'm a huge "holiday theme" type of person... 
I love to do my nails, wear clothing that is themed and even match my lipstick to the holiday we are celebrating.  

IT'S SO MUCH FUN!!
Sally Hansen and Rimmel London have partnered with me for this feature, as we take their Insta-Dri nail polishes and their Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour in reds and pinks...for a VALENTINE'S DAY INSPIRED LOOK!
I painted my nails with the ASAP Apple Red and the Watermelon Wizz Pink Insta-Dri Sally Hansen polishes.  I used the Watermelon Fizz color as the accent nail (my ring finger).  The thing I absolutely love about this polish is how well it covers and how VERY QUICK it dries.  
The name is definitely correct!  
I did two coats of polish, five minutes before leaving to pick my kids up from school today and it was dry before I got in the car.
The Stay Matte "Fire Starter" Liquid Lip Colour from Rimmel London is also the perfect RED lip color to achieve your Valentine's Day look.  This color is perfect for casual or even dressier "date night" looks.  But hey, not gonna lie, it's a pretty bold look even in the school pick up line on a Friday afternoon.  My oldest son told me, "red looks good on you"!  The best part?  This color stays on and doesn't fade throughout the day.  Perfect for a long day at work or an evening out on the town.

@PURAttitude - Summer Skin Prep MUST HAVES! #PURATTITUDE

You know the saying, "TIME FLIES?"  
Well..the older I get, the more I realize that this statement couldn't be truer.  Wasn't it just Christmas?  
Now...Valentine's Day is next week.  
Where did the past couple months go?

All products for this review/feature have been sent free of charge by the company.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinion about these products.
With as fast as time passes, if we blink a few times, it will be summer again and we will be ready to start wearing shorts, bathing suits and tank tops too.  
I mean, I live in So. Cal, so wearing the least amount of clothes (modestly) as possible, is necessary to survive the heat.
PUR Attitude sent me a couple products to use & try, as I prep for the upcoming summer months ahead.  Both products will have my skin looking brighter, healthier and even tighter (in certain areas that might need a little extra help with that).  I'm so excited and anxious for cute new shorts and the cutest bathing suits I can find.

PUR FIRM CELLUFIRM LOTION

This product is pretty awesome!  It's not a miracle and it doesn't make things disappear all the way, but I did notice some tightening and less lumpy look, especially on the back of my legs (one of my problem areas).  You have to make sure to rub it in all the way, so it can be completely absorbed by your skin.
I'll spare you the picture of the back of my legs.

PUR SCRUB FOAMING BAMBOO ALMOND

You have to be careful when you use this, that you're not scrubbing too hard, because the scrub is definitely exfoliating.  It smells great and leaves your skin with a healthy, "new skin" glow.  
It helps you rid your body of old dried winter skin.  
YES!!  This stuff is awesome!

Both of these products seem to be working great and I look forward to trying out more of PUR Attitude products in the future.  I see they have some products that may also help me with my aging skin on my face as well.  They even have a product called "Fountain of Youth Serum", which I'm very curious to try out.
