I am really not a big water drinker and unfortunately, this has rubbed off on my children. When I saw the WAT-AAH website I became intrigued. The very first thing I noticed upon visiting their website is the catchy tune that plays as you navigate through the site. The beat was so catchy it caused my ten and four year old to run into my office to see what I was doing. My four year old commented, "I love that song"!

WAT-AAH was created by a mother, Rose Cameron, to encourage her son to drink water. The input of her son and other children were used to pick the bottle design, the neon colors and Green Lighting- the boy with the big mouth on the label. And WAT-AAH was born! The first premium water by kids for kids.

WAT-AAH comes in four varieties:
  • Blue: Brain- Ultra Pure Water + Electrolytes
  • Orange: Power- Ultra Pure Water + Magnesium
  • Pink: Body- Pure Spring Water- No chemicals, No Sodium
  • Green: Energy- Ultra Pure Water + Oxygen
Fortunately, I was able to receive one of each of the WAT-AAH labels for review. The water shipped in a very attractive box that immediately grabbed my childrens' attention. They could not wait for me to open it. Upon opening the box and removing the bottles of water, I noticed that WAT-AAH  included stickers and temporary tattoos for the kids. Of course, this really made them excited about trying the "new water"! We each grabbed a bottle and put it into the fridge to cool. Three ours later, we were ready to taste WAT-AAH!


WAT-AAH  has a very crisp taste that does not leave an after taste like many of the bottled waters that I have tried, including those that cost almost $3 per bottle! I was pleasantly surprised with the pure taste. I drunk a full 16.9 oz bottle in less than 2 minutes! That is a record for me since I am not a big water drinker. My children also enjoyed the taste. Even my four year old who is a big juice drinker, said, "I like this water". While drinking the water, my kids could not stop talking about the labels on the bottles. They really enjoyed looking at "the boy" on the label. My daughter was fascinated with the sayings on each of the labels. She wanted to see what each bottle said.  I kept hearing them laugh and say "WAT-AAH" for the next day! They were disappointed that they only had one bottle to drink!


Fortunately I was able to find 2 locations near me-3 locations total in Michigan that sell WAT-AAH.
WAT-AAH also sells on Amazon for $12.00 per case of 12.


On June 1st of this year, WAT-AAH launched a new campaign- Show Me Wat-You-Got! WAT-AAH boy wants to encourage kids to stay active, motivated and healthy during the summer months.

At Wat-You-Got.com, children between the ages of 5-17 can show off their talents in soccer, music, dance or ANY OTHER TALENT!

Sex toys - EdenFantasys adult toys store

When I was first given the opportunity to write a review for Eden Fantasys, I laughed and immediately thought-A-B-S-O-L-U-T-E-L-Y NOT! I am a divorced mom of three kids, running a family friendly blog........There is no way I am writing a review about anything that has to do with S-E-X! After careful thought and consideration and a fair amount of research; however, I decided I can write a review about Eden Fantasys and still maintain my status as a family friendly blogger. After all, I have written posts before that were just for us "grown-ups". I will advise if you are under the age of 18, this post although rated "PG", does contain links to a site meant for those 18 and over.

Now that we have that little bit of business taken care of......on to the review! Eden Fantasys has a huge assortment of items, everything from massage oils, to sensual candles, sexy lingerie, to adult toys.

After looking through their website I decided on this Ember massage candle by Jimmyjane
Sold for $35 at EdenFantasys.com
This is not your average candle. Made from cosmetic-grade soy wax and natural plant extracts, this is a scented candle, massage candle and the wax can be used a a moisturizer. The wax contains ingredients including: jojoba, shea butter, vitamin E, soy, aloe and other botanical elements. It comes in a nice 12 oz. reusable porcelain container with an nice pour spout and cover (as seen in the above picture). The candle blends beautifully into your home decor so you can have it as an accessory in any room.

Before I could completely remove the candle from the box, I could smell the fragrant scent of Vetiver + Honey. I could not wait to light it and have the fragrant smell fill the air in my room. I burned the candle for about an hour and a half before I blew the fire out to experience the natural ingredients of the soy wax. I poured the wax onto my hands immediately after blowing the fire out. The wax poured easily and was not at all hot. The wax liquefied nicely into a massage oil. I used it on my hands and feet. It blended into my skin nicely and was a very nice bedtime moisturizer. I awoke the next morning to very soft hands and feet. The wax was a little greasy, similar to rubbing baby oil into your skin. I did have to rub some of the wax off of my hands onto a hand towel.

Would I recommend this candle for purchase? Absolutely! As I stated previously, this is not your average candle. For the same price that you can purchase a a good-quality scented candle, you can buy this Ember Massage Candle that is a "multi-purpose candle'. I would recommend that you pour very slowly, as a little amount goes a long way! And you may want to have a towel nearby to wipe off any excess oil.

The Eden Fantasys website is very easy to navigate and has a lot of useful material , including: product reviews and a forum to discuss almost anything! The website, even though an adult site, is very tastefully done. Once you have chosen your product and made a purchase, do not worry about the delivery man or anyone else knowing your business. The items are shipped in a very discreet box with a return label to: "Web Merchants Inc".  Only you will know where it's really from!

Halloween is still three months away, but if your children are like mine, they enjoy playing "dress up" all year-around! Or maybe unlike me, you shop early for costumes for Halloween. No matter what your situation, I have discovered a BARGAIN find for your costume needs!

I was excited when I was given the opportunity to do a review for the Wholesale Costume Club. The only problem was, I have three children and I was only able to review one costume! Thankfully the random number generator is good for more than just giveaways!

With Wholesale Costume Club, you are able to save money on costumes, and choose from a huge selection of costumes and accessories for adults and children. The costumes that you find on their site are the same that you will find at large retail locations or specialty Halloween stores, but at a much lower price!

Wholesale Costume Club has great prices for members and non-members. If you decide to purchase a membership, it's just $5 per year! With the amount you save on your first order, the membership pays for itself!

After letting the random number generator decide which of my three kids would get to choose a costume, my oldest son (age 9) and I began to look through over a 1000 boys costumes. He wasn't quite sure what he wanted at first, but he soon narrowed the category to a War Machine Costume. After searching page by page, he finally decided on the Boys Classic Iron Muscle Man 2 War Machine Costume. I was shocked when I saw how inexpensive this costume was. Just $27.98 for Non-Members and a low $24.96 for members!

I was very happy with the amount of time it took to ship the item to me. I placed the order late Monday and it arrived to my front door on Friday. My son could not wait for me to open the box, so that he could try on his new costume!

I was amazed at how well the costume looked for such a low price. This was not the cheap looking outfit that you find in your local retail store. My son wears medium clothing in a size 7/8, but I ordered a large (10/12). It fit him perfectly. With his shirt and jeans underneath, he still had ample room to move without being too constricted or having too much room. The padding added to the chest and shoulder area really added to the overall look of the costume. The mask fit very comfortably around his head, and he was able to see and breath well through it.

Start your Halloween costume search now in the comfort of your home. Visit Wholesale Costume Club today for huge savings on high quality costumes. This is truly a Bargain Find!

Happy Shopping!
