FUMI Bracelet PurseHook

Today's review is on a great Momma product. Every woman has been out to a restaurant in a bathroom and had to sit there purse on the Floor I know nasty right who knows whats crawling down there. After I had my eldest daughter my purse became my diaper bag No mom wants to put there bag with there baby's bottle paci and diapers on a nasty bathroom floor.  I don't even like to put it on the floor in a restaurant and I don't care for hanging it behind me on the back of my chair where I can see it and someone could walk off with my wallet. When i found this amazing product I knew I wanted to show everyone.  Its called a FUMI Bracelet PurseHook. Ok so a lot of women now have purse hooks I admit I have one but I can never find it in the bottom of my purse or diaper bag when I need it so it often doesn't get used. This is where the FUMI Bracelet PurseHook is different. Its a bracelet and PurseHook In one. I can wear it on my wrist so its right there when I need it. I can also put it on the handle to my bag.
I wanted to show the Hinge
Its beautiful they have a quite a few options so I am sure there is one to match your taste or bag for that matter. They sell for $14.95 on .

FUMI was nice enough to send me one as a free sample to review and I have fallen in love with it. They sent me a black FUMI Bracelet PurseHook its sleek and stylish and matches most of what I own. I would love to get the Pewter FUMI Bracelet PurseHook. I have had the opportunity to use it on several outings now and I will never again put my purse on a nasty bathroom floor because the coat hook is missing. I hung my purse off the bathroom stall wall, off the toilet paper holder, the baby changing table, the counter.  Then I took it with me to the restaurant and my purse hung neatly on the side of the table right next to my leg where I could see it. Its great It looks good on my wrist it looks good on my bag.

Come check out all the different Bracelet PurseHooks they have to offer I am sure you will find something you love. It would make a great birthday gift for a sister or any other Woman you love.

I found this great new product called GRiPPiES now if your a mom your going to want to get some of these. they are a stick on or Iron on No-Slip solution for tights, socks and gloves! they are really simple to use. They are machine washable and dryer safe!

they are not this dark they are clear I had to get a shadow
so you could see them.
 The great Mom behind GRiPPiES was kind enough to send me some free samples to test out for you. Since they were kind enough to send me some samples to test we got right to it.

 GRiPPiES come in two shapes clear ovals and Clear bears. they also have two kinds Peel and Stick or Iron on.
If they are the peel and stick you do just that. Peel them off and stick them on the bottom of your socks or gloves or tights.
 If they are the Iron on ones Preheat iron to Hottest setting NO STEAM. You will cut out the desired number of GRiPPiES from the sheet Do not remove individual GRiPPiES . You then place the cardboard insert into the garment. Peel off waxed paper backing and adhere GRiPPiES, still attached to the adhesive sheet, to garment in the desired position. Place cloth napkin on top of the garment. Firmly Press down on garment with iron for approximately 60 seconds. Remove Iron, cloth and adhesive backing. Note adhesive backing mist be peeled off while hot.! Allow to cool. If needed, place adhesive backing/cloth back over GRiPPiES  and press for 20 seconds more. They can be found at they sell for 5.99 for a pack of 24 which is enough grippies to do quite a few socks!

see dirty kid foot
So I used the Stick on GRiPPiES first I stuck them to the bottom of my 4 year olds socks and instructed her to slide accost the kitchen floor. This is not something normally allowed in our house so of course she looked at me like I had two heads. I told her Just this one time. So she gets a running start thinking that if she has this free pass she is going to give it her all before Momma changes her mind. Well I fooled her good she skidded to a stop she looked at me funny and said I messed that one up let me try again. I told her to go for it. Try as she may she could not slide accost the kitchen floor. So I Iron these baby's on my 2 year olds Footed PJ's Now this is her favorite pair and she has worn off all the no skid dots that were on them when we bought them. She is constantly falling down on the slick hard wood floor but because these are her favorite she insist on wearing them. Well Fall no more Little Bug GRiPPiES has saved the day! I love it. They have been thorough the washer and dryer several times a week for a few weeks now and they are still holding strong. They are very hard to see on the bottom of your socks because they are clear. They do show up how ever once the bottom of the sock gets dirty we have this nice clean bear shape on the bottom. Doesn't bother me a bit Its kind of turned into a reminder to my 4 year old to change her socks. I even plan on adding them to the bottom of my Grandmas socks so that she doesn't slip and fall when walking on the hard wood floor.

You can find GRiPPiES hear . I love that they are affordable enough for my tight budget and Work just like the Package says.

Fit Factor Kids

I'm big on fitness, keeping in shape and eating healthy. Since Having my Kids I have fallen in love with good work out videos making it to the gym with two kids in tow is almost impossible so both of my girls have seen momma working out to various fitness videos over the last 4 years. Most work out videos are too hard for kids though and of course because mommy is doing it the girls want to do it too. In comes Fit factor Kids, this is a cute little work out video made just for kids its even hosted by kids. Its designed for kids ages 4-12. It includes six great fun workouts. Its designed for both at home and classroom use. Kids Groove along with superstar kids through six Fit Factor exercise routines designed to improve children's fitness. Children use there imaginations and learn how to take care of there bodies as there energetic hosts provide informative tips and instructions. The workouts include creative animal movements, mimic recess activities such as jumping rope, playing four-square and shooting baskets. Children's Fitness hosts walk you through simple stretching, strengthening and aerobic activities.  you can find the video at and its $18.95 not a bad price for a kids workout DVD.

I received this DVD a few weeks ago from Fit Factor. My youngest was the only one at home at the time she is 2. the video is geared for kids 4-12  but she wanted to try it. she couldn't do all the moves but she gave it her best and it kept her moving for about 10 min before she lost interest. My 4 year old came in from school and I told her I got a new exercises video and ask if she wanted to try it. I started the video for her and she picked what workout she wanted to do. She loved the music and did almost the entire video before declaring she was tired and needed a snack. Each workout is about 10 min long. Just long enough to get excercise but not so long that she louses interest in it. She now frequently ask to do the cool workout video. The music is cool and upbeat to keep kids interested. I Love that all the moves are easy enough for my girls to do and they get excited when I turn it on. I don't know if its the fact that kids are doing all the exercises or if she just likes the music. All I care is that it gets her up and moving and she has fun doing it.

I recieved the Fit factor Kids video as a free sample for this review. My opinions are still my Own

This is another great ECO Friendly product. Its a biodegradable cleaning cloth that replaces paper towels and sponges. This is what the Company has to say about it:

The SKOY cloth is a fabulous, absorbent, biodegradable and natural multi-use cloth.  Our re-usable earth friendly cloth is perfect in your kitchen, bathroom, and on most surface areas in your home or office.  SKOY cloth can be used in place of your sponge, wash cloth or paper towels. 
It is a European made product and 100% biodegradable because it is made from a natural cotton and wood-based cellulose pulp.  SKOY cloth is a chlorine-free product using water-based colors and inks.  After an independent composting test, SKOY cloth broke down completely within 5 weeks.
The SKOY cloth is a durable product due to the reusability factor and can last months.  Using a SKOY cloth is equivalent to using 15 rolls of paper towels in an average home.  With the high cost of paper towels, as much as $2 per roll, SKOY cloth is the obvious choice for your wallet and the environment.
The SKOY cloth has an absorption factor of 15x its own weight.  As a result, producing the most superior cloth product available.  Imagine using 15 sheets of good-quality paper towels at once… This is how a wet SKOY cloth will feel in your hand. 
The SKOY cloth is long-lasting because of the wash ability feature.  It dries quickly, so it is not a breeding ground for bacteria.    Have you ever used your sponge, then smelled your hand and it reeked of horrible bacteria? That will never happen again if you microwave your SKOY cloth regularly. It is also dishwasher and washer/dryer safe. Cleaning your SKOY cloth will keep it healthy and germ-free.  Please see Use & Care for instructions.   
The cool and unique designs will make cleaning fun!

Cool Right ! They sell for about $6.99 for a four pack they are 7''x7'' in size.And they come in multi colors and have a cool print on them. SKOY also offer several different prints a flower, inspirational text, holiday prints, They also offer a paw print these how ever come in 2 packs for $6.99. The 2 packs are a bit bigger in size 12''x10'' and sell for $6.99.  You can find them hear 

I have been Using SKOY cloth for about 2 weeks now. I have to say they are amazing! When I first opened the package I was surprised the cloth was as stiff as cardboard I thought what the heck I thought this was supposed to be like dish rag. Trust me It gets soft and flexible when you get it wet. I have really used this little cloth for everything. I have scrubbed the Glass top stove, I have wiped counters, washed dishes, cleaned little hands and faces, Wiped up spilled milk,juice and Ice cream. It even cleaned up yogurt and applesauce nicely. It holds a lot of liquid and that I was impressed with. I love that Its reusable for a long time I love that it saves me MONEY!  and Its wicked cool that its completely biodegradable when its composted it will break down in about 5 weeks which means its not going to be sitting in a landfill for the next year. The colors are cool I love great colors in my kitchen. My girls each picked there own color that they use to clean there face and hands. So far the one I have been using for dishes has held up nicely I usually need a new sponge every week or two because its falling apart and just smells. I even have a color that I use Just for cleaning the bathroom sink  The SKOY cloth is still going strong Its been through the top rack of my dishwasher several times already and I even threw it in the microwave like they suggested and it still looks nice. I gave one too my mom to test out she looked at me like I was crazy she said it was too small for a dish cloth. turns out its actually a great size for her. My mom suffers from arthritis and often  has a hard time wring out most dish clothes and forget sponges they are too thick. The SKOY cloth is really absorbent but its still easy enough for her to wring out she said the size is just right for her to handle easily. At $6.99 for a 4 pack these Little cloths are definitely in my squeaky budget range. I love my SKOY cloths and I would love to order some more when the time comes. I only wish I could find them at walmart!

They also have a great fundraising program for Schools that allows your school to make 40% proffit. they even offer a special SKOY Print. You can find out more hear

Come Check out SKOY cloths I know you will love them.

I love that I can find everything on one Site! Quick and Easy just right for Busy Mom's.

Activewear USA was kind enough to send me this great work out shirt by Stella Athletics its called a Lily Tank, and a aluminum Activewear USA water bottle that's a great orange color as a free sample to review. It can be found hear
The Stella Athletics Lily is Made in the USA score one for another great American made product. This is what Activewear USA has to stay about the Lily Tank

The design and quality of the workout shirt is great the stitching is nice. The shirt has a fun sort of tattoo design on it and Its got a great breathable fabric right down the center of the back that I would be great in the summer time. It also has a built in shelf bra that is comfortable I don't think it would offer enough support for running but its great for yoga. The shirt did run on the small side so be careful with that. I usually wear a medium for top and they sent me a medium but its a little on the small side. I don't know if this brand typically runs small or not. This is the first time I have ever used this brand but It could be a size bigger.

The Aluminum Activewear water bottle they sent me is great. I love the color its bright and vibrant and has held up well to my 4 year old tester banging it around. Its a great size for on the go and it fits in my cars cup holder with out a problem. Its got a screw on top that seals well and a clip so that you could clip it on to a back pack or something if you were hiking.

I received a ResQMe as a free sample to Review.

I am always looking for Safety Products and when I found the ResQMe I knew this was a product I had to review. The ResQMe is a small device that you can keep on your keys or in your car that can potentially save your life In a car accident. A ResQMe will easily Break a tempered glass car window and will cut through a jammed seat belt allowing you to escape with you life. A ResQMe weighs less than an ounce and is 2.93 inches long so its convenient to carry on your keys.

photo from
 I know everyone wants to know how it works right. The
ResQMe houses a spring loaded window punch. When you press the bottom cylinder of the ResQMe against a corner of your side or rear car window it loads the spring  and then releases it slamming the hardened steel tip of the bunch against the glass breaking it. You should use the ResQMe close to a corner of a side window or rear window. The corner is more rigid and the window will break more easily in this area. If the window does not  break on the first attempt a second try will usually do the trick. NEVER attempt to break a front car windshield. A windshield is made of laminated glass and it requires a professional extrication tool to break it.

It also has this amazing Cutter on it that you can use to cut your seat belt if it were to become jammed during an accident. It has a razor sharp blade that is exposed when you remove the key chain from the body of the tool. You grab your keys in one hand and the ResQMe in the other and pull. You dont even have to remove your keys from the ignition. Once the clip is removed slip the blade guard over your seat belt and pull. It will cut through in just a few "pulls". Even with the guard removed there is very little danger of cutting your self because the blade is well guarded leaving just enough room for a seat belt.

You can test your ResQMe at home with out breaking a car window. Place the black cylinder (located on the bottom of the ResQMe.) on an old magazine, book or pad of paper. Then press down on it tell you hear a "click" The click is the sound of the punch releasing. Now look at the surface of the magazine or what ever you used for you test. It should have a small impression in it as if someone tapped it with a nail. The ResQMe instantly resets itself so it is immediately ready to be used again. If you press a ResQMe against a side or rear car window in this manner it will shatter it.
CAUTION: Do not test the ResQMe against a hard surface like metal or stone as this can dull the tip and render it useless in an emergency. DO NOT attempt to activate the punch against any body part. The tip of the Punch is very sharp and may puncture your skin.

I received a yellow ResQMe for this review. Its a bright yellow and will be very easy to locate in an accident. You can attach it to your keys or on to your visor. You can find them hear at  they sell for $9.95 each. They are very affordable they come in some great colors Yellow,Orange,Blue,Black, Pink. You can even have your company logo imprinted on them. The ResQMe would make a great safety gift for new drivers and friends and family you care about. Its easy enough to use that my grandma can even do it. It has a premant home on my Keys and I hope to order more for the rest of my family this year. Its truly a Gift for Life!

The ResQMe
 is proudly made in the USA

I received some samples of the Dry Case as free samples to review.

DryCASE is a flexible, crystal clear waterproof case that allows complete use of your phone or camera while keeping it dry and clean. It waterproof up to 100Ft for an hour( they actually tested this I saw pictures of  diver under water with his phone strapped to his arm!)  Because its vacuum sealed and the case is completely clear you can still use your touch screen. There is even a Head phone jack so you can use water proof head phones with it.  They come in a variety of sizes from big DryCases to fit Ipads and tablets to medium ones for cell phones to smaller ones for MP3 players. Prices range from $39.00 to $59.00 depending on the size of DryCase you get you can find them hear at

Im a chicken its a play camera in the fish tank! I did test it
with my Phone

So I have to admit I am a bit of a chicken when it comes to getting my electronics near water. I love my Galaxy Tab and I want to protect it I would never think of taking it to the beach or pool. I also Like my Cell Phone its not a fancy phone but It works.  So when the DryCase came I was excited but a little worried about actually testing it on my beloved Galaxy Tab or my phone for that matter. So I took my daughters play phone you know those cheep ones that play the annoying sounds. (ok i admit it, i was secretly hoping it would fail and I would be rid of that thing lol) I put the camera in the small DryCase snapped the locks shut they are a little tough to get snapped shut but I wouldn't want them to be easy to open. I then attached the suction bulb to the white port and sucked the air out tell the bag was flat with no air. I removed the suction bulb and closed the safety cap. I waited the recommended 10 min to be sure the seal was good then I tossed it into the bath tub full of water and left it for a while. an hour later and 2 clean kids the seal was still sealed and the play phone still looked dry. I dried off the out side of the DryCase and opened it up. Yup the dreaded play phone was still dry and working Just fine. My daughter even ask if we could put it in the Fish Tank and I thought why not lets do it. She had a blast and my phone stayed dry and it still works I actually received a text while it was in the fish tank. Now the Small DryCase says that it can be used for a camera if you wanted to use the camera while it was in the DryCase it would have to be one that did not have a expanding lens as the case is vacuumed sealed so it would damage the lens if it couldn't expand.

So I put my Galaxy Tab in the Big Drycase I repeated all the step and Sucked all the air out. I knew it would keep it dry I just wanted to test to see how well the touch screen worked thought that thick plastic. I turned it on (kinda hard to press the side button on a galaxy tab but if you position the plastic just right when you are sucking the air out Its a little easier.) the first test would the touch screen work well enough for me to unlock the screen Yup select an app yup I can do that too. Do my home button and email button work Yup that works too. I haven't had any problems at all with the touch screen on my galaxy Tab I left it in the dry case for 2 days tell the battery ran dead and I had to take it out to charge it and I never had any problems with the touch screen. I let my girls run around with my galaxy tab during those two days and the DryCase held up well it never lost its vacuum seal. My daughter even spilled milk on it once and it stayed completely dry. I even let my daughter take it out and put it in a rain puddle in the drive way. I did take a few pictures with my Galaxy Tab in the DryCase and I thought they turned great I was surprised that they turned out through that thick plastic But they did!

I wish I had a DryCase when we were living by the beach It would have been so handy to keep my point and shoot camera dry and sand free while playing in the surf with the Girls. I probably would still have that little camera today. I don't think I mentioned it before but Your Dry case comes with a Neoprene Armband so you can keep your phone or MP3 player on your arm while you are swimming or playing in the water. No worrying about someone stealing your camera or phone while you are swimming walking or playing in the ocean. I think I will take my camera on a float trip this summer! Check out there Youtube videos of people getting there Tech Wet!

DryCase is a cool Product everyone should get one and Get there Tech Wet!
