Giveaway! HighFive Naturals Silicone Cooking Essentials

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Kitchen safety should be a priority for anyone working in the kitchen. Whether you're baking cupcakes with your kids or whipping up a gourmet steak dinner for your spouse, HighFive Naturals Silicone products are essentials you'll want to keep in your kitchen.
HighFive Naturals sent me a set of their potholders, cooking gloves, and suction lids to test in my kitchen. Silicone is a flexible, durable, nonstick, rubbery-feeling material. It's made of all natural polymers of silicon, carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen, plus it is temperature-resistant from -40 to 500 degrees.
I am so impressed with these HighFive Naturals products! Just yesterday, I used the cooking gloves to pull my cupcakes out of the oven, then set my hot muffin pan to cool on the potholders. I used the suction lids to cover my batter between baking cycles. They are so easy to use and kept me (and my counters) safe from burns. They're also extremely easy to clean.
HighFive Naturals Silicone cooking essentials can be used in the kitchen or at your backyard barbecue, but they can come in handy many other ways too. Use the suction lids to cover your foods at picnics and potlucks. Put your pillar candles on the potholders to protect your tables. Wear the cooking gloves while making smores at the campground. How else do you think you would use them?

Skip the Potato Chips - Try ips!

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Looking for healthy snacks? My husband and I have been munching on these delicious Egg White Ch(ips) all week! Made with non-GMO corn and egg white protein, ips are packed with flavor. They have 6 grams of protein per serving (about the equivalent of one egg), half the fat of fried chips, and fewer carbs than baked chips.
Ips are available in four scrumptious flavors - Sea Salt and Black Pepper, Cinnamon, Aged White Cheddar, and Barbecue. They are crunchy like a chip, a bit thicker than a potato chip, and very satisfying when I'm in a munchy mood.
I like them all, but I think my most favorite one is probably the Sea Salt and Black Pepper. The cinnamon flavor is great for when I am craving something sweet. They come in either a 1oz bag or a 3oz bag. They use only premium, high-quality egg whites (hormone free and never treated with preventative antibiotics), all produced in Nebraska and Iowa.
Ips are available through Amazon or at www.ipsallnatural.com. They are also available in over 600 stores and you can look for a location near you on their website's store locator. We love them and I encourage you to give them a try! You can also follow them on Facebook and Twitter.

Daycare Room Ideas - Daycare Loft

I've been going through boxes of old photos lately, in my attempts to declutter my house, and found some photos of the daycare room that I created in my first house. They are not great quality pics because they are over ten years old, but I wanted to share photos of the loft my husband designed and built from my simple pencil sketch.
In just two weeks, over a Christmas vacation break, my husband built the daycare loft. The cost of all the materials was around $600 including the wood, the plexiglass around the upper loft, and the carpeting for the steps.
Under the loft was the "home center."
The upper loft was the "reading center."
This area, on the opposite corner of the room from the loft, was the "math center" and "science center," along with "table toys."
This little corner was the "block center." The other corner of the room, of which I have no photo, was the "computer center." If you have a home daycare or even a playroom for your own children, I hope these photos give you ideas for setting up the room. Thanks for reading!

Fricaine See Fancy Embroidered Handbag #fashion

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Never before have I seen such an absolutely gorgeous handbag! The Fricaine See Fancy Embroidered Handbag is a piece of art. It's made of high-quality micro-fiber leather and embroidered pieces native to the protected Miao tribe in the Guizhou region of China. All four sides of the handbag feature breathtaking embroidery detail, so it's stunning no matter how you look at it.
The details on the eye-catching See Fancy are amazing. Even the hardware is forged with gold-plated material and will never corrode. It's a medium-sized handbag with an incredibly roomy interior. It is the perfect size, measuring 14 inches across at the front and back, and over 6 inches wide (at the widest point) on the sides.
See Fancy features both short handles and a detachable long shoulder strap. There is so much careful attention in every single component that goes into creating it and I don't think I've ever been more impressed with a handbag. I get so many questions about it when I'm out and about, that I feel like a movie star!
The interior lining is a beautiful pink satiny fabric that contrasts perfectly with the exterior. There are lots of great pockets inside, including the roomy main compartment, two zipper pockets, and three open pockets, giving me a level of handbag organization I've not had in a long time.
Fricaine makes an entire collection of red-carpet-worthy handbags including globally-sourced, exotic Jacquard and Wax Fabric handbags. Each custom-made handbag features vibrant colors, durable construction, and functional design.
I am absolutely thrilled with my classy See Fancy handbag from Fricaine and I highly recommend them! Go see all their handbags at www.fricaine.com.
