The holidays are coming up quickly. You want to have all the family over to have a festive time with them and spend quality time as well. We totally understand and are right there with you. I have also started thinking about how all those extra people are going to be using the restroom, we will be using the sinks, toilet and shower a lot more for hand washing, cooking, and showers. So this is on my list of must check on for the holidays as we will be having a lot of guests.

So in prepping for the holidays all of our plumbing needs to be maintained in order to ensure that we have a fabulous holiday. Did you know that the plumbers busiest time of year is during the holiday season??? That’s right it’s great to see everyone but your plumbing is not always as excited to see them as you are. So be sure your plumbing is ready and that you will not have to spend money on a plumber this holiday season because the prices are higher per hour during this time as well. So let’s make sure your ready for a stress free holiday!

5 Tips on How to Dry Laundry Quickly Indoors

clothing drying rack

Despite the fact that sometimes we complain about the heat, those sunny days are always good for our laundry. In addition to killing bacteria and improving the odor on our clothes, sunlight is considered the best way to get laundry dry. But blame it on the seasons; most of the days and nights in a year are the ones we have to deal with cold, moist or and snowy 12-24 hours. But hygiene and sanitation standards have to be observed all the same. Ever woke up to one of those mornings when you’re like, “where’s my blue silk top that I really need to wear today?”Well, for those of you who have a tumble dryer, it just takes you a couple of minutes to hours to get this blue top ready. However, these don’t always come cheap. And endless cycle of wet laundry can be a disaster in the making, especially for the professional individual who has to look the part out there at work. So how exactly can you dry your wet clothes fast indoors?

Here are some 5 tips on how to dry laundry quickly indoors.

1. Get a drying rack
Also known as a clothes horse, a drying rack can be an amazing piece of equipment in your arsenal if you have to dry your clothes indoors. These are mostly made of plastic and can be acquired from most supermarkets and homeware stores. Foldable options that allow you to save on storage space are also available. In case you need something more practical, you can also plant a few indoor clotheslines, but this will require you to have a considerable amount of indoor space you can spare.

2. Pick a warm and breezy place
When you have to dry your laundry indoors, the location will also have an impact on how long your clothes take to dry. Significantly warm places that have a good flow of air can be the best to place your airer, clothesline or permanent drying rack. You can also consider areas with a considerable source of warmth, such as near the oven (kitchen) or radiator. However, you’ll also want to avoid areas where your clothes can pick up foul or strange smells.

3. Rotate your drying clothes regularly
To improve the rate at which your clothes dry indoors, be sure to rotate the hanging positions regularly or at least once. Doing so improves airflow and heat distribution, which are factors that your laundry relies on to dry. The way you pack up or position your clothes drying rack will also affect how fast the moisture in them drains and evaporates off. Also, you might want to consider opening more windows to improve ventilation, which can reduce the time your clothes take to dry. However

4. Consider Using Hangers
Whether you’re using a clothesline or a drying rack; your smart fit shirts, blouses, and coats could use some hangers. In addition to saving space, using hangers will also help reduce creasing when drying your clothes indoors. Once dry, you’ll have less to worry about ironing.

5. Dehumidify

Last but not least, drying clothes with dehumidifieris also another one among the best ways you can dry laundry quickly indoors. In addition to speeding up the clothes drying process, a dehumidifier will also protect your indoor environment from moisture and smells of dumpiness. It will protect your home indoors from attracting the growth of mold and other microorganisms. With the above tips, you can manage your closet better during the cold or rainy season. Anytime you’re doing the laundry and the sun is not up, you’ll have less to worry about.

STASH Folding Kids Chair Review #ChristmasGiftGuide

Stash folding chair

I received the STASH folding Chair to review. I have to say that I was excited to receive it because I wanted to see if it could really do the folding well. You know how some products make claims but then you purchase them and they do not work as well as stated. So I was wondering was this chair really 21 lbs, did it fold well? Was it the perfect chair for my little prince and princesses when they visited?

Stash-Folding-Kids-Chair-specs-extended

When it arrived I unboxed it and it was just as adorable as shown, it is made very well also. I was really impressed with the quality of the chair, the construction, it was just so adorable! Then I tested how well it folded. I was not difficult to do, it went down without having to push really hard on it so a child could fold it with no problems and I have a shelf system that it actually fits on when it’s not use if I need the floor room as well or I can put it in the closet as well if we need more room. It is really just so adorable and it gives the kids not only a great seat for them to sit in, it folds to be stored away if l need to AND l ast but not least it has a storage area under the seat as well.

Stash-Folding-Kids-Chair-fun-playful-childrens-chair_preview

I have set up the STASH chair as a reading area for my grandkids. I have it in a corner of the room, it has been filled with books for them to enjoy reading. I also have the books that read it to them in the chair as well for the little ones that can’t read yet. The kids all know that they books are in there and that it’s their special reading spot. So when they come over they will take turns sitting in the chair and reading books to each other or letting the little ones have the books read it to them. It has turned into the grandkids favorite place in our house. Which I have to say that I just love! It’s getting them reading more and they have a great place to sit and do it and it makes clean up very easy all the books just go back under the seat when they are done reading.

We also have special nights when the kids stay over we like to do a movie night with popcorn, hot chocolate, and a few other goodies. One of the kids will sit in the STASH chair and then the others will have cuddle time with me, Great Grandma or one of their uncles. Then they trade places so that everyone gets some cuddle time and then they don’t fight over where they are sitting. So everyone gets a turn with where they want to sit or who they want to cuddle with. It has really worked out well having the STASH chair for the grand kids while they are visiting! They all love it and want a STASH folding chair at their house! It has made a great reading adventure chair and helped to get the kids reading more.

My Towel Buddy Review #ChristmasGiftGuide

my towel buddy frog

I have to say that I was curious about the My Buddy Towel frog. I was looking at them thinking that they are just so adorable but would they really work when you come out of the bath or shower? Are they soft or are they a little course to the touch? Are they really that cute in person? I had so many questions whirling around in my head at one time. So I could not wait for it to arrive to answer all the questions that I had.

When it arrived I took it out of the package and I felt the “My Buddy Towel Frog.” The material for it was so soft and just perfect for a little one to get wrapped up in to dry off and be warm and cozy. You can just unzip it when your little one is done with their bath or shower and have it all ready for them. When I used it with my grandson, he looked at me like “What are you doing Nana?” he didn’t ask but you could tell by his expression that’s what he was thinking. He looked at me and said “Nana, I’m went, no jammies yet!” I laughed and said “They aren’t Jammies buddy, it’s your towel that gets you all dry and warm at the same time. So I put the hood up and picked him up to show him in the mirror. He gasped and said “I’m a frog!” I have to say I laughed and told him it is very fitting for him since he is always jumping around!” He asked me to put him down and went running and hopping to see his mom to show her that he was a frog. LOL!

I let him wear the towel for a while because he was not going to get out of it. I tried to tell him it was time for me to wash it for his next bath and put his Jammies on but he was not having it! He would run and then hop around. I finally got him and he cried when I told him that he could use it for his next bath and that I would wash it so it was all ready. I told him he could still be a frog without his My Buddy Towel and that did the trick. However, the next day he came to me and asked where his frog was. I asked him “why?” He looked at me and said “Nana, I’m stinky, I need a bath and to be a frog!” so I laughed at him and told him that I had to make dinner and he had to eat before he could take his bath and be a frog. He ate his whole plate and looks at me and said “Nana! It’s bathtime!” I said “Can Nana finish eating first?” He looks right at me and said “No, it’s bath time NOW!” I laughed at him and said “Okay, your going to wait till Nana is done eating then bath time.” He looked at me like I just took his favorite toy away from him. lol So he sat down and waited for me to finish eating and then it was bath time. I can say that I will not have to fight with him for bath time! Which is a great win!

I love that they have other “My Buddy Towels” as well for you to choose from! The Shark and flamingo are adorable as well. These adorable My Buddy Towels would make a great Christmas gift. However, once they have them be ready for them to want to take a bath all the time so they can wear their frog, shark, or Flamingo My Buddy Towel. Makes bath time so much easier and no fighting with them to get them in!

5 Fascinating Big Attractions to Explore in Australia with the Whole Family

Giant_Koala__640x480-square

Humans have a fascination with big and grand things. It always amazes us how little we are in this huge world and also reminds us how much we can do if we just work hard for it.

This is what tourists that visit Australia think whenever they visit a unique side of the country, not many visitors know. Aside from pristine beaches, extreme activities, and comforting nature parks, Australia also boasts huge sculptures and landmarks that are also visited by tourists. These might not be as popular as other Australian destinations but seeing them up close makes you wonder how much effort and skills were used to put up such huge pieces.

Are you curious too? Then why don’t you see them on your family’s next travel holiday to Australia? You will surely be fascinated by how these landmarks were made.

The Big Lobster
Check out the gigantic lobster sculpture once in Kingston SE, South Australia! The Big Lobster, locally known as Larry the Lobster, was built and designed by Rob Moyse and Paul Kelly. It is a fiberglass and steel structure that stands 17 meters and 4 feet tall. Opened in 1979, this attraction is said to catch more attention to the visitor center as well as the restaurant where it is located.

The Big Scotsman
Head over Adelaide and see The Big Scotsman, or popularly called as Scotty, with your whole family. Built in 1963, this 5-meter high statue stands just right next to Scotty’s Motel and was also designed by Paul Kelly. It is regarded as the oldest “Big Thing” in the country, so never pass up the chance to visit and take a photo of it.

The Big Pineapple
Catch one of the most famous “Big Things” once you are in Woombye, Queensland. The Big Pineapple was created in 1971 with an impressive height of 16 meters. It has been a heritage-listed attraction that gained popularity to many travelers over the years. More so, this structure is a tribute to the booming pineapple farming industry in the region.

The Giant Koala
Completed in 1989 by sculptor Ben Van Zetton, The Giant Koala in Victoria is yet another attraction you should not miss. It stands at 14 meters high and weighs 8 tons as well as made of bronze set above a steel frame. This adorable statue is a memorial to the world-famous Sam the koala, a brave little critter who recovered from lung damage and third-degree burns in a devastating bushfire at Southern Ash Wildlife Shelter.

The Big Banana
Of course, The Big Banana won’t be out of this list. Situated at Coffs Harbour in New South Wales, this vivid yellow attraction is a must-see spot with the whole family. It was built in 1964 and since then it continues to attract tons of visitors. Don’t forget to take a photo op with it when here!

Indeed, the “Big Things” are sure to make your family trip enjoyable and worthwhile. These biggest tourist attractions in Australia lead you to a different side of the country, so better plan your journey well. You can simply hire a reliable DriveNow car to get you to these spots and make the most of your time with the entire family.

Little Book Of You Baby Book Review #ChristmasGiftGuide

little book about me

As many of you know, my daughter just blessed me with a new granddaughter this summer. I was so excited about making her a book all about her, when she was born and a lot of interesting facts about the day she was born. I thought it would make the perfect gift for my little princess as well as something that she could look back on when she is older and know more about the day she was born.

Little Book Of You Baby Book is a beautifully illustrated book. They have the most adorable characters throughout the whole book that your child as well as you will just fall in love with. It has so many great facts included in the book like how much gas, milk, bread and other things cost on the day they were born. Interesting facts about the state they lived when they were born, who was at the hospital when they were born, who their family members are from Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles and more. They get so much information about the day they were born that it will answer all their questions about that special day and they will just love learning all about them.

I showed it to my daughter and she just cried she loved it so much. She now wants one for her other daughter as well. I’m actually planning on getting one for each of my kids and grandkids because they are so cute and make a great keepsake for them. I make many keepsakes for them and have them in a box for each of them. They will receive them at a certain point for them to go through. Till then I keep adding to the boxes for them to have more keepsakes. It will be a wonderful surprise for them to read about the day they were born and what was going on in the world, who was there at their births, and so much information about the day they were born. They will have The Little Book to show their children and compare their books to see all the differences from when each of them were born.

I also love that we can keep passing them down in the family and they can be viewed by all the future generations as well. It can help them to know more about their family and who their family members were and who they are related to. This is the perfect book for any baby that is going to be a new little bundle of joy or for your children you have now. Give them the perfect keepsake for them to have and show their children and their children’s children. A Book that you can keep passing down through the family so that they know where they have come from and who they are. The beautiful illustrations, all the information throughout the book can show them how times keep changing but family always has a part in their lives.

Skinnies Seamless Skinwear Shirt Review #Christmas Gift Guide

skinnies shirt

I can not tell you how excited I was to receive the Skinnies Seamless Skinwear Shirt to try with my son. Now, I must explain why I was so excited. My son has EDS which makes his skin split and bleed and it also makes materials on his skin feel like it’s on fire, he has sensory issues as well so he will only wear certain materials which makes shopping for him a whole new experience for us both. We normally, if we are lucky walk out with 1 item for him out of hours of shopping.

So when the Skinnies Seamless Skinwear Shirt arrived I was hopeful that he would be able to wear different clothing with it and protect his skin at the same time. I had high hopes for the shirt improving his daily life and his health needs as well. When I took it out of the box, my son looked at the shirt and looked at me and made a face. Until I told him to feel it, he grabbed it and started to rub it on his face, he loved the feel of it. It was so soft, he was so excited to put it on. When he did he was instantly in love with it. It soothed his skin, it was soft and he was didn’t want to take it off. You have no idea as a mom of a son who normally fights with me about EVERYTHING that touches his body to find something that he would wear and use under other clothes to be able to have more clothing options available for him.

baby skinnies

This is seriously HUGE for my son to say that he will try to wear other clothes over it now. We of course are still watching what we purchase but I had him try a shirt on that normally bugged him over the top of his Skinnies long sleeve shirt protected his skin and he was thrilled because he loved the shirt he wore over the top of it but because of his skin he couldn’t wear it. I have not seen that big of a smile on my son in a while! We will be buying several more of the Skinnies shirts in long and short sleeves, I will also be purchasing the Skinnies pants for him as well because he has a jeans issue as well. This has been a game changer for my son. He will be able to wear the styles he likes and not have to worry about his skin feeling like it’s on fire, that he has to wear just certain clothing and that is it. He said that wearing Skinnies makes him feel like he can be “normal” like other people and wear what he wants, when he wants. He has never had that so he is so excited! They have a great selection of Skinnies clothing that will be great for the whole family!

Five Unique Items to Put on Your Baby Shower Registry

Baby Shower

Congrats! You’ve got a beautiful bundle of joy on the way. You may have already taken a look at our ultimate Baby Shower Gift Guide, which is a great place to start when looking for ideas on what to add to your registry. Perhaps you’ve even already gotten to work on your baby nursery, and hired a professional painter from Teaberry or another local painting service to help create a beautiful mural or color scheme.

As you know, having a baby on the way requires plenty of planning and preparation. Your baby shower registry can help you streamline many of your current and future tasks. The following is a list of unique items that you may not have thought of, and aren’t on many roundups when it comes to baby shower registry lists. Of course, you want to have all your baby must-haves, which include everything from bibs to a car seat. But it’s always fun to throw in a few key items that are less traditional for your list. Here are five unique items to add:

Fashionable Foam Tiles
You may have already heard of foam tiles, and they’re pretty popular in the world of parenting. These foam play mats are the perfect place for your little one to have fun and grow without hurting themselves. And in a world where wooden floors are the trendy norm, foam tiles are the perfect cushiony alternative. They can be placed and removed easily, and thanks to their versatility, can be taken anywhere in the home, and even to other locations.

Fortunately, you don’t have to invest in the classic multi-colored puzzle piece foam mats that are most popular. There are plenty of modern foam mats that come in fashionable forms. Little Nomad is one of the most popular companies in this field. The company appeared on Shark Tank, and has a tagline, “The most beautiful play foam mats ever—plus play space decor for style-minded mamas.” Choose from a wide variety of play mats that look more like chic carpets than play space for your children.

BabyLit Board Books
It’s never too soon to jump start your infant’s love for literature, so why not start by reading them some childproofed versions of your favorite English classics? The company BabyLit provides beautifully illustrated books that are familiar to parents. These include titles like “Don Quixote”, “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,” and “Pride and Prejudice.” You can find many of the BabyLit books on Amazon.

Toy & Clothes Subscription Service
A subscription service gift is essentially the gift that keeps on giving. Why not put a year’s subscription box on your registry? Fortunately, there are plenty of cool subscription boxes for kids and babies. For instance, Milestones ABC sends out quarterly boxes that are filled with educational toys, clothes, and books for newborns to kids age 10. Then there’s Mac & Mia, a subscription box that sends out fashionable baby clothes for busy moms who don’t always have the time to shop for trendy new baby clothes.

Bath Thermometer
A bath thermometer may not be the first product that comes to mind when creating your baby shower registry, but it’s incredibly useful. Without it, you’ll continuously have to test the water with your hands, going back and forth between the cold and hot water settings, seeking the perfect water that’s “just right” for your little one.

A bath thermometer eliminates the guesswork. The perfect baby bath water temperature is the same as body temperature, and a thermometer ensures you get it right time after time. Check out this list of best baby bath thermometers.

Baby Food Maker
If you’re a health conscious mom who wants the best natural food for their kiddos, a baby food maker is a great option for your registry. Though there are many to choose from (you should do your own research to see which you’ll enjoy the most, and read plenty of reviews), they all perform the same basic functions, which allow parents to turn fruits and vegetables into natural drinks and foods for their infants and toddlers.

Not only is making your own baby food healthy, but economical and easy as well. You’ll save money by skipping out on store-bought jars and pouches, and feel much more confident about the food that goes into your child’s mouth. Some products, like Beaba Babycook, is designed to be easy to use with just one hand, allowing you to multitask seamlessly with your baby still in your arms. Other products, like the Baby Bullet, also come equipped with plenty of complementary accessories, like storage cups and tray.
