Nûby™ Sea Scooper Whale Pail™ Review and Giveaway!



Photo does not belong to DGSays
This Nûby™ whale is so much more than a place to store bath toys! It's been a very hungry shark, a flying dolphin, a submarine, but the cutest, and most photo-worthy adventure, was Nûby™ Sea Scooper staring in our house as...


Nûby™ Sea Scooper Whale Pail comes with an easy-to-install wall mount. When your kids are done playing, it's very exciting to have the hungry whale swoop down and eat all their toys to be placed on the side of the tub for the next bath time! Organized and cute! There are several holes and vents on the whale, so the toys dry quickly so there is no standing water and no mildew forms!
Easy clean up: we recommend just spraying it with vinegar water once a week and wipe down. And of course, it's BPA free!

Skarlette absolutely loves this bath toy!

  ------------------------------------------------------

I was so excited to review this amazing SteamMachine Multi-Purpose Power Steamer from HomeRight! I had no idea about this horrifyingly awesome adventure I was about to embark on!


I scrubbed my bathrooms the day before I received the HomeRight Steam Cleaner on my porch. They were squeaky clean! At least I thought so! Just thinking I was playing around, I started cleaning first around the grout/spicket of my sink. Black and brown gunk started flying everywhere! I stopped immediatley thinking I must be damaging my sink! On closer inspection, I realized that it was not peices of my sink, no.. It was <WHO KNOWS how many years of> build up & crud in every crack and crevice that my clorox wipes, wash clothes, brushes, etc could NOT reach. I was mortified and in love all the same moment.

Thought this bathroom was clean until I took the HomeRight Steamer to it!

I took this baby for a ride!

  • I cleaned my bathrooms: toilets, faucets, bathtub, daughter's bathtub toys!
  • I cleaned my kitchen: oven, counters, floor, refrigerator!
  • I cleaned almost every surface in my house!
  • It cleaned my daughters stinky diaper pail. 
  • I cleaned the garbage cans. 
  • I even cleaned my vertical blinds!

The most magnificent thing this machine did for me was to clean something that I have been frustrated with for years. The ceiling fan and the circle of dust that accumulated around it!  I've tried everything I could think of! My popcorn ceilings laughed at the sight of dusters. I would be left with a duster dangling from the ceiling... regardless of weight.  Pull it down, shred the duster- leaving behind more of a mess. Ugh.

However, my husband, YES MY HUSBAND, was able to easily remove all the dust from our ceiling! No fuzz or dust left behind, steamer intact! WOOHOO!

Can you see the "Ring-O-Gross"? Don't judge! ;)


All without the use of harmful chemicals.
AND IT WAS FUN for both my husband and I!!!

Thank you HomeRight! My home is finally Right! :)

UGLee Ergonomic Pen Review & Giveaway! Win a 3-pack!

From UGLee Pen's Website






"The world's most comfortable, ergonomic pen!"
The Ultimate Grip Pen by Dr. James Lee is a revolutionary ergonomic pen that is designed, created and used by a real physician. This Dr. inspired grip pen is redefining the way people view ergonomic pens. Try the UGLee Pen, you will love it."

I am crazy about office supplies. It's some weird obsession of mine. I love the smell of office supply stores, fresh paper, using a new pen for the first time. I honestly CANNOT wait to be able to go out and purchase school supplies for my daughter!

I love pens! I am always looking for the next best thing. I am so glad I came across UGLee Pen and they were very kind to send me three pens for my family's honest review.

From UGLee Pen website

UGLee Pen is calling itself "the world's most comfortable, ergonomic pen." Dr. James Lee created the pen while x-raying his own hand to find the best grip and shape. Made from space-aged palmer material, the pen certainly looks different than any pen I've used. With it's claims, and to have a money back guarantee, I was intrigued.

Three pens, just for my family. Three colors!
Of course Skarlette, my 18 month old gets the red! My husband was sent to work with the blue, and I get to take notes, run errands and my business with the yellow.

Begin testing!


My daughter (2 years old): Skarlette loved using the pen. She loved the feel of it. Something about the squishy gripper made her giddy. She also enjoyed CHEWING on it. While I usually wouldn't condone letting her chew on pens, I was impressed how well the thing held up to her impressively sharp pearly whites! What surprised me the most, was that even without instruction, she held the UGLee pen closest to correct writing form than any other utensil she's used!

 

"Kids Need UGLee, Too!

You already know that it takes years of practice learning how to write. Did you know that it also takes years to build up the correct muscles to do so efficiently? Kids are also at risk for repetitive stress injury, in fact that can be where it starts! Because of their underdeveloped muscles, it is easy for children to accumulate small injuries early. Get your children an UGLee Pen and help prevent future hand problems"


Me (D.G. Says): I REALLY liked this pen! It writes fluidly, it feels comfortable, and I don't have that painful indent on my middle finger anymore! It fits my hand well, and I like that I do not have to readjust as I am writing. I've also noticed little to no wrist pain after long periods of writing! I would most definitely recommend this pen! I also recommend making sure you mark them obnoxiously to avoid thievery! I seem to have one missing already!

My Husband: He took a pen to work and I asked a few times how he felt about the UGLee pen. His review wasn't so flattering as mine. He felt it was a "bic pen with a rubber grip." That was the extent of his review, but I had to include it to keep it honest!


Uglee Pen is giving one of my readers a 3-pack of pens of their own! ($30.00 RTV)
You know you want it! Enter today! Good Luck!

MISSION: Eat Breakfast, Prep in BULK! Win Some Breakfast too!

From the movie "Pleasantville"



Breakfast. One of my <many> New Years resolutions. But this one is easy, I just have to eat. Right?!

Life is getting so busy around our house, if I get a cup of coffee in in the morning, I am super happy. Sometimes I'll steal a slice of banana or bite of scrambled egg off my daughter's tray, but give little thought to what I eat and drink before 12 p.m.. This is something that NEEDS to change! Eating breakfast can improve concentration, fuel us for a workout, help to control weight, and even LOWER cholesterol. Don't believe me, google it. And then snopes.com it. (No, not really, that one was for my husband.)

The past few weeks I've implemented: MISSION: Eat Breakfast, Prep in BULK! This has been a LIFESAVER! Both for me, and my husband! If you get on Pinterest, you will see freezer meals galore for dinner. Why not do that for breakfast?!


My husband and I have differing options on oatmeal flavor and texture- which is why this recipe is fantastic for us! I love sweet so I add in honey or maple syrup. He prefers it without sweetener. I like THINNER oatmeal (I would say normal oatmeal) so I use about 3/4 c water. He likes it THICK so he uses about 1/2 c water!  Feel free to change up these ingredients to your own personal preferance!

Bulk Homemade Instant Oatmeal

Mix together:
  • 4 c quick-cooking oats
  • 3 c quick-cooking ground oats (I use a food processor, helps give the oatmeal a creamer texture!)
  • 1 c nondairy powdered creamer
  • 1.5 c cranberries
  • 1/2 c hemp hearts
  • 1/2 c ground Salba Smart® chia seeds
  • 1/2 c ground flax
  • 1 c chopped nuts (almonds, walnuts, etc.)
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp ginger
  • 2 tsp nutmeg

Measure: 1/2 cup into each snack-size freezer bag. 

To serve: mix in 1/2- 3/4 cup HOT water (we use Keurig) 


Makes at least 18- 1/2 cup DRY servings (each serving equivalent to TWO store-bought instant oat pouches)



These are delicious and great to put in the freezer! My husband bagged them up in sets of two and throws a bag in his pocket on the way to work.

CH-CH-Chia & Naner Muffins

  • One bag of Purely Elizabeth® ancient grain oatmeal - Organic Cranberry Pumpkin Seed -OR- 3 cups rolled oats
  • 2 cups steal cut oats
  • 1/4 c ground Salba Smart® chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup chopped Cacao Chocolate Nibs*  (I use food processor)
  • 1/2 cup coconut  
  • 5-6 overripe bananas, mashed
  • 4 TBSP organic maple syrup
  • 2 1/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)
  • 2 vanilla beans, sliced, seeds removed. -OR- two tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line 24 muffin tins (may need more or less depending on your batch).
Mix in two separate bowls, dry and liquid ingredients, thoroughly.  Mix wet into dry. (Feel free to sample the batter, there are no raw eggs here! ;) Fill each muffin tin and bake 20-25 minutes.

Don't forget to try one hot out of the oven!

*You can use regular chocolate chips. I prefer Cacao due to their naturally lower sugar content

Salba Smart and Purely Elizabeth are generously giving away  Salba Chia Premium Ground & Whole Seed pouch & Purely Elizabeth Ancient Grain Oatmeal to one of my lucky readers! Enter and share with your friends! This stuff is amazing!

GIVEAWAY! Move aside Traditional Gingerbread HOUSE! Salba Smart® Chia-Gingerbread... Tardis?!

I love Salba Smart® Chia Seeds. You can check out some of their AWESOME health benefits on my previous blog HERE.

I'm always looking for new ways to use them. This month's assignment was to make cookies incorporating chia! Being the overachiever I am, I decided to make one GIANT cookie! Gingerbread. MMM! 'Tis the season, after all!

Four words on the assignment from Salba Smart®, (as a new ambassador- THANKS GUYS!:)) stood out to me, "adapt-so-it-fits". WELL, my nerd is calling out to me this month.

I give you, Dr. Who's Chia Gingerbread TARDIS!
Dr. Who, 11th doctor minus his Fez (I think the kid ate it) and minus an arm (and the kid DIDN'T eat THAT- he had a rather unfortunate meeting with the floor.)




Adding chia seeds to a cookie recipe is SUPER simple. Make a chia gel: 1 part WHOLE seeds to 3 parts water. Let it sit until gel forms: about 5 minutes. This can be added to virtually any recipe! 

Want the HOW-TO? Here it is!

----------------------------------------------

The Plans! (Template)




This took a lot of trimming to get it right, but it's a GREAT starting point!

 ----------------------------------------------

Recipe,  Adapted from: 

Eileens Spicy Gingerbread Men


  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup molasses
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 3 T SalbaSmart® Chia Gel 
  • 4 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons ground cloves
  • teaspoons ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream together the margarine and sugar until smooth. Stir in molasses and egg yolk and chia gel. Combine the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and nutmeg; blend into the molasses mixture until smooth. Cover, and chill for at least one hour. (I had them in overnight)
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into desired shapes using the Tardis Template. Place cookies 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 10-12 minutes in the preheated oven, until firm. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks. DO NOT BUILD UNTIL THESE ARE COOL AND FIRM!
----------------------------------------------


Icing  (the glue):


For the icing/glue, I use Alton Brown's Royal Icing. <-- completely recommended! It was like super glue!!! The roof would have been a lot harder without it!

----------------------------------------------

Win Your Very Own SodaStream®!

Thank you to Katrina, over at The Nurse Mommy, for asking me to be apart of this giveaway! I can say I personally own a SodaStream®, and it's awesome for company! You can also just add fruit and have sparkling fruit enhanced water!

 ---- D. G.  Says ---





"The most asked question I get when friends come over and ask about it is… “does it taste the same?” My answer is for most of the flavors yes. Just like if you go to the store and buy the generic brand of pop, it tastes so close some people can’t tell the difference. Now with that said, there are some flavors that I can tell the difference but that’s ok. I don’t see anything wrong with that. The next question I get is… “are there lots of flavors?” Yes there are. We received a variety to try out. From Cola Free, to Ginger Ale, to Koolaid Fruit Punch flavors.  There are also water enhancer flavors as well.

If you don’t see what you want in the store, there are so many more options online. 

The 3rd most asked question I get is.. “is it worth it?” That answer is two-fold. To me it really depends on how much pop you and your family drinks. If it’s only once in a while, then probably not. If you all drink pop and different flavors and a lot of it then probably it is. It saves a ton of space and you get to keep all your flavors on hand to drink whenever you want. If you go and buy a 2 liter bottle at the store and open it, you only have a few days and you have to drink it all. With SodaStream, you can make a small bottle or a 1 liter at a time."

India Tree® - Night In Baking With My Friends!

Where inappropriate jokes are shared and the calories don't matter...


When friends get together and bake, something magical happens. Smiles are had, good food is eaten, and new inside jokes and memories are created. 
It doesn't happen often enough with our busy lives, and I can't wait for this to become something we all do regularly. Alternating houses of course! (Sorry about your poor carpet and counters Loni!) 

Getting my collection of goods from India Tree® set off this budding tradition. I was so lucky to have been chosen to review some of their amazing products. I knew I wasn't going to be able to keep it to myself, so I recruited my friends. Everyone was impressed with the products, and keep coming up with more ideas of what to use them for!  

India Tree® Mulling Spices! Check them out!


Araya did an amazing job with creating bathtub paints from India Tree's Nature's Colors Decorating Set. These turned out so awesome, I created a blog just for them. If you missed it, you can check out the details here! I highly recommend these colors if you have sensitivity to artificial dyes and colors as these are made from nature. Beets, for example, are what gives the red it's beautiful color!

http://domesticgoddesssays.blogspot.com/2013/11/india-tree-all-natural-homemade-bathtub.html

The Dark and Light Muscovado Sugars had me SUPER intrigued. And I'm ashamed to admit I could have taken a spoon to either of these sugars!

The India Tree® website describes the Dark Muscovado Sugar as "a fine, moist texture, a high molasses content and a strong, lingering flavor that goes well with other rich flavors such as gingerbread, coffee, chocolate cakes and fudge. Use INDIA TREE Dark Muscovado Sugar in recipes calling for dark brown sugar"
They aren't kidding when they say this sugar has a STRONG molasses flavor. It was very surprising and the quality of this sugar is apparent upon first taste. While other brown sugars are incredibly sweet, this sugar is full of FLAVOR.

The Light Muscovado Sugar is also incredibly flavorful, but not quite as strong! The website says, it "is a fine, subtle and versatile molasses sugar. With its rich aroma and delicate flavor, it is a superior substitute in any recipe calling for light brown sugar" Store bought light brown sugar has NOTHING on this sugar! SUPERIOR is quite the perfect word for this product.
