About Them:  Dirty airport floors. Two beautiful baby girls. Six-hour layover. *CRINGE!*A a desperate desire arose for either a constant shower of sanitizer…or a portable, clean surface I could take EVERYwhere. Not a bulky blanket (who has room?), or something I had to plan for in advance to have with me (I am just NOT that organized!!). I soon realized I also wanted such a solution for hotel floors. Soccer games, Spontaneous picnics, and local festivals. Sit-ups at the park (where Fido just was, * CRINGE * again). I mentioned my frustration to my dear friend and now business partner, Courtney, and though she didn’t even have kids at the time, she wanted such a solution for her active lifestyle, outdoor concerts, wine tastings, camping, hiking. The desired uses were endless. We searched for a portable, clean surface to meet our needs, and when (shockingly!) nothing existed, we decided to create it. The brainstorming and prototyping began...hot glue guns and staplers galore... And so the Monkey Mat ® was born! There is NOTHING that provides the portability, versatility, and functionality with style like the Monkey Mat. Whether for life in full swing or just monkeying around, the Monkey Mat is the perfect solution to protect from any questionably clean floor, in or outdoors - EVERYwhere you explore. We wish you many happy Monkey Mat moments!

Swiss Diamond Square Casserole With Lid


Swiss Diamond is dedicated to empowering in the home chefs by a manufacturing the highest quality nonstick cookware in the world from the factory located in Sierre, Switzerland. Swiss diamond believes that cooking at home should be convenient and healthy, so they use cast aluminum and reinforced their nonstick coating with real diamond crystals. 

I was sent the Square Casserole With Lid that holds 5 quarts and is 11” x 11”. Being square allows for a larger 5.3-quart cooking capacity and that easily fits in next to other pans in the oven. This pan is perfect because it is big enough for the Thanksgiving meal we party have. It is easy to wash and the casserole dish can go from the stovetop, to the oven (safe up to 500 F), to the dinner table for serving. Simply wash with warm water and soap and the pan comes clean with ease. The heat tempered lid helps control the moisture level in the oven and on the stovetop.

My Opinion: I really like this Square casserole dish and I hate to admit it’s my first casserole dish. I did find it easy to use in my oven my oven heats hot so adjusted it to my temperature for cooking and it worked nicely. I do find it to be a little heavy but durable which I like. Clean up was a breeze as it washed right off easily with soap and water. You can make so many dishes in this pan including lasagna, Shepherd’s pie and so much more.

Chewy.com Pedigree Detastix & Blue Buffalo Health Bars


This month Chewy.com sent me some great items for Fiona my Yorkshire Terrier to review. Pedigree Dentastix toy/small original treats these are clinically proven to reduce plaque and how to build up, a contributor to gum disease when used daily as part of an oral routine. The special texture helps clean down to the gumline with the patented X-shape design this size is perfect for my little Yorkie but it also comes in other sizes. 


Blue Buffalo Health Bars with Banana& Yogurt dog treats this is a 16-ounce bag this is for the health-conscious pet parent. These deliver the great taste and satisfying crunch that our furry friend loves but without the corn, wheat, and soy known to cause allergic reactions in some dogs. Blue Buffalo Health Bars with Banana & Yogurt are made with the finest natural ingredients fortified with omega-3 and antioxidants and over bait for a big crunch.

Fiona’s Opinion: she really loves Dentastix and she gets one every day half in the morning half at night and is one of her favorites. She also likes the Blue Buffalo Health Bars with Banana& Yogurt health bars but because it is so crunchy for her little mouth I break it up into multiple pieces but she really loves the taste of it as well. So I have to say this month Chewy.com has really made Fiona a very happy spoiled Yorkie!
Remember that Chewy.com can deliver all your pets needs to your door so you don’t have to go to the pet store and pick him up as they have dogs, cats, birds, reptiles and other small pet items. So save time for more important things in life than going to the store.
