EdenPURE OxiLeaf Review Create a Cleaner Home Environment #ChristmasGiftGuide

EndenPURE Oxileaf

The EdenPURE OxiLeaf arrived and it couldn’t have been better timing since we were sick. I opened the box and saw this adorable little leaf. I read the easy instructions and plugged it in. I turned the dial and you could smell it smell it starting to work. I wanted to try to keep the germs to a minimum so that we could get over this cold.

My son’s could smell the EdenPURE Oxileaf working as well. It has a wonderful clean scent and you can adjust it to what your family likes. I love that you can adjust it because some scents can be over powering and you can’t adjust them. You can get the perfect amount for you and your family. While purifying your home, killing germs, freshens the air, and helps with your allergies and other respiratory conditions as well. It’s so easy to use that even my son’s can adjust the dial if I have to run to the store. My older son is very aware of scents and most bother him but he doesn’t have an issue with the Oxileaf.

EdenPURE Oxileaf1

I have two son’s who have very low immune systems, my youngest son has Asthma and the boys have allergies as do I. So when the EdenPURE Oxileaf is perfect for all their needs! It has really cut down on my son’s watery itchy eyes, his sneezing, and keeping germs at bay so that we have less worries of people coming over and getting my son’s sick. It’s really been so helpful to my son’s health. I can see this being a better cold and flu year for our family! I also love that if we go to visit somewhere I can bring it with us, plug it in and let it start to work. If we have a time were we are visiting friends and family where we will be spending the night we can put it in our rooms and it will be very easy for us to bring to a hotel if we are on vacation as well.

I honestly can not find one thing that I do not love about the design, the way that the EdenPURE OxiLeaf purifies the house and kills germs and makes the house smell so clean. It is really a great product to have and use with any family and keep any home smelling fresh and keeping it 99.9% free of air pollutants as well. You and your family will thank yourself or if you get it as a gift the person who got it for you! I was wondering how this little leaf could do all the things that they claimed but it has exceeded my expectations! We have a good size living room, dining room and kitchen and I can tell a huge difference in the whole house. It really does what they say! I used it for about 2 weeks before I wrote anything because I really wanted to ensure that this review is accurate and it has just blown me away at how wonderful it really is!

Bumbleberry Farms Molten Lava, Maple, Sticky Buns, and Salted Caramel Honey Cream Review

honey cream1

I was so excited when the Bumbleberry Farms Molten Lava, Maple, Sticky Buns, and Salted Caramel Honey Cream arrived. It came in the cutest little box. It just happened that we were sick when it arrived and to boot I had run out of honey from making the whole family Green Tea with Star Mint candy melted in it with honey to get them feeling better. So I was so excited that I didn’t have to run to the store to get more honey. Talk about perfect timing. I had also been arguing with my youngest son that he needed to drink his tea. (He can be a joy when he is sick!)

I was so excited to have the different flavored honey cream arrive when it did. So I took my son’s tea from him and I put in some Molten Lava in his tea and he DRANK it! Thank you Bumbleberry Farms because getting that boy to drink his tea is like pulling teeth! He asked for more with of course the Molten Lava Honey Cream in it! Then he took a nap, so I was thrilled with that! We all loved it, the Molten Lava was sweet, Chocolate goodness! It was just perfect! The boys wanted some toast so I put the Molten Lava Honey Cream on it and they were loving it! It made our whole sick family feel better!

I have to say the flavors for Honey Cream are just amazing! They had a rich flavor and they have such a comfort feeling to them when you put them on toast, in tea or coffee, such a feeling of this is a great comfort food to have in my cabinet! We have tried the different flavors and each tastes so delicious! I can not wait to try even more flavors. We will also be using them in some great recipes as well! We will substitute the sugars in recipes for the Honey Cream. There are so many wonderful recipes, breakfast dishes and drink recipes that you could use the Bumbleberry Honey Cream in!

You can get these great flavored Bumbleberry Farms Molten Lava, Maple, Sticky Buns, and Salted Caramel Honey Cream and find so many new ways to use them. Your family will thank you and wonder where you found these amazing flavors to create your desserts, breakfasts or that amazing tea or coffee they are drinking. Bring your friends and family the comfort of Bumbleberry Farms Honey Creams!

Freezer Breakfast Meal Recipes That You Can Make For A Great Morning Start #BackToSchool #Breakfast #Freezermeals

I have to say that I love making the Freezer Breakfast Meals, I do this 1 time a month and we have breakfasts for the whole month. The kids love it because they can choose what they would like and we can even take them on the go with us if we are running late for an appointment. It just makes mornings so much easier and I know they are eating something healthy to start their day.

Breakfast Buritos

A Dozen Eggs
12 Flour Tortillas
1 Green Pepper
1 package of Bacon or Sausage Patties or Links (family prefers)
1 package of Cheese
Milk

Scramble the eggs in a bowl and mix in a little milk to make them fluffy. Then add chopped Green pepper, and your already cooked meat choice. Scramble the eggs with everything in the eggs. Then take your tortilla (one at a time) fill them and fold them into a burrito. Let them cool down a little. Then put them in a freezer bag. Label them and put the date on them. It will make 12 of your Burritos.

Homemade Egg Mc Muffins

12 Whole English Muffins
12 Eggs
1 Package of Bacon
1 Package of American Cheese

Fry your eggs so that the yolk is still in tact, while your bacon is cooking, (I usually cook the bacon in the oven while doing this) Then toast your English Muffins, You then put 1 egg on each Muffin. Top with your bacon and cheese. Wrap your Egg Mc Muffins in a paper towel and then put in freezer bags to freeze. Label bag and put in freezer.

Pancakes

You can use a mix if your family prefers it, or you can make homemade pancakes. I also like to add Fruits or chocolate chips to them to give the kids a variety so it’s not always the same thing over and over again.

Make your pancakes, with Blueberrries, chocolate chips, banana or whatever you would like. Then let them cool. Now, I love to use my Bread bags for freezing them. Once the bread is gone I shake out the crumbs and save them to freeze my pancakes in. You can use any Bread bag to freeze them in. Then once they have cooled freeze them on a cookie sheet for 5 minutes then put them in the bag it helps them to stop sicking together.

Waffles

You can again make homemade or use a Box mix the choice is yours. You will make the waffles and let them cool. Then put them on a cookie sheet and freeze them for 5 minutes and then put in freezer bags. Waffles are at times to big to use the bread bags for if they are the larger ones. If you are making the square waffles use the bread bags as well.

Free Pumpkin Stencils #Pumpkin #Halloween

sugar-skull-pumpkin

There are so many great free stencils that you can use to make some great pumpkins with your family. I have included some of my favorite sites that offer free stencils for you to print out and use to make your pumpkins. I know it’s going to be difficult to chose which ones to use as there are so many great ones. I suggest picking up a few more pumpkins to keep the fun going for the Halloween season!

We are doing several pumpkins this year and we are using glow in the dark paint. This way they will show in color during the day and then come evening they will glow the images in the dark. We are using the stencils as a way to know where to paint. So this is a great option as well for the Halloween season. Once your finished you can put them on your porch or in your windows for everyone to enjoy.

Vivitar DRC-330 Air Defender Drone Review #ChristmasGiftGuide

Vivitar Drone

We received the Vivitar DRC-330 Air Defender Drone to review. I told my son’s that I had a surprise for them to help me with. So of course as always they wanted to know what they would be helping with and what was in the box I was holding. I told them we would open it after lunch. So we sat down to lunch and they ate really quickly and said “Okay, we are ready to help mom!” I had to laugh because it was about 5 minutes and they were done with lunch. Can you tell they get excited to help me??? lol

So we took the box outside and I opened it. The boys were so excited about seeing how the drone worked. I took out the batteries that I had already charged and the Vivitar DRC-330 Air Defender Drone. I got the Drone ready and they were so excited that they were going to get to try it. I gave the remote to one of my son’s. We have a field that is just a block or two away from our house so we went there to fly the drone because it was their first time and I didn’t want it to land on top of the house. So I told them how it works and what they needed to do. It was simple enough for them both to use with no problems.

My son had the Drone flying and I had put in the Micro SD card as well so that I could have him take some photos. They were having so much fun! They had the whole field to fly the drone over so they were just having a blast. They were amazed at how high the drone would go and how easy it was to land it. They were taking photos as well, those did not come out so well. Not by any fault of the drone’s camera, the boys were still trying to figure out how to fly it and use it so they came out blurry because it was moving all over the place when they were trying to take pictures. So I wasn’t expecting great first photos by any means. The boys were just having so much fun with the Drone, I was loving watching them play with it.

I did take the Drone out by myself, because you know that I had to try it for the review. Yes, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. LOL! So I went to the field and I was flying the drone. I had no problems flying it or landing it. I was able to take photos from the drone camera as well and they came out great. I had both batteries with me so I was having a lot of fun with it! I was able to land it on the field with no problems, since it was my first time I figured I would crash it but no, it landed easily. I have used it several times and each time I get better and better with flying it and the pictures are coming out great! I’m thinking of trying to take some fun fall photos of the family with the drone and seeing how they come out. I have some personalized gifts that I would love to use the pictures for!

The Vivitar DRC-330 Air Defender Drone would make a great Christmas gift! Not only for Children but also for adults! You can find the Drone at Walmart, Target, Staples, and several other stores. It’s a great gift for that hard to buy for person because there are so many ways to use it!
