I received in the mail as part of a product review Bummas. You may be asking yourself what is Bummas? Well they are cloth baby wipes. I received a package of 10 all white with colored trim. These are eco- friendly and better then baby wipes as you can wash these over and over again. I know when was a baby my mom used cloth baby wipes as back then there was no disposable wipes and looking back on it some things back in the earlier decades were better ideas and more environmentally friendly as now a days it is all about convenience. Some ideas are better than others regarding that. The price for a package is $15.00 but well worth the price as they are washable and reusable. You can find out where to purchase them by visiting the website at: or if you can’t find a retailer near you then just purchaser them online. They make great baby shower gifts or Christmas gifts. I like how soft the wipes are.They have been awarded the Seal of Approval from PTPA.  And  won an Eco-Excellence award too.

Tropical Traditions

I received in the mail as part of a product review Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil. It is made from Organic Coconut this premium Virgin Coconut Oil is handcrafted by family producers in the Philippines using traditional methods passed down from previous generations. We were the first ones to export Virgin Coconut Oil from the Philippines to the United States back in 2001. Recent studies show that traditionally-made coconut oils have the highest amounts of antioxidants. You can use this product for cooking and it is done in a lot of tropical climates already. It has no Carbohydrates, sodium and calories per Tbsp. are 117 and Fat 14g which is not to bad. Cooking with this product is great and the cookies I made came out yummy just like if you did not use the Coconut Oil. If you are looking to go Organic or try something new give Coconut Oil a try by Tropical Traditions. Check out their website at: besides Coconut Oil they offer pet products, hygiene products, organic foods and much more.
Here is information on the labeling I got from their website:
There is no industry standard definition for "Virgin Coconut Oil" as there is in the olive oil industry for "Virgin" and "Extra Virgin" olive oil. Today, there are many coconut oils on the market that are labeled as "Virgin Coconut Oil." Tropical Traditions was the first company to publish standards for the use of "Virgin Coconut Oil" in terms of edible oils, and here is what we published over ten years ago:
Virgin Coconut Oil can only be achieved by using fresh coconut meat or what is called non-copra. Chemicals and high heating are not used in further refining, since the natural, pure coconut oil is very stable with a shelf life of several years. There are currently two main processes of manufacturing Virgin Coconut Oil:
1. Quick drying of fresh coconut meat which is then used to press out the oil. Using this method, the coconut meat is quick dried, and the oil is then pressed out via mechanical means. This is the most common type of "Virgin" or "Extra Virgin" (see below) coconut oil sold in the market today that you will find in stores. It is mass-produced. (see our Green Label Virgin Coconut Oil)
2. Wet-milling. With this method the oil is extracted from fresh coconut meat without drying first. "Coconut milk" is expressed first by pressing. The oil is then further separated from the water. Methods which can be used to separate the oil from the water include boiling, fermentation, refrigeration, enzymes and mechanical centrifuge. (see our Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil)

O'Keefe's Working Hands and Healthy Feet

I received in the mail as part of a product review O’Keefe’s Working hands and Healthy Feet. These are specially designed for dry, rough, cracked and split feet and hands. The formula is unscented and stimulates the skins natural repair process and recommend by Podiatrist and diabetes educators. I used the O’Keefe’s working feet and I must say it is very coarse and helped with my dry cracked feet as I suffer with dry, cracked and split feet ever since I was a child my mom and grandma use to give me foot soaks with Aveeno and at night bag balm and that would heal my feet then but now it is not as effective. Working hands is great for someone who suffers from dry, cracked and split hands possible a mechanic or anyone constantly washing their hands all day long this product is for you. The product comes in a round tube with 3.2 oz. and the price is very inexpensive $7.99 which may last a long time and you can check out the website at the currently only ship to the United States. You can purchase their product online or search their store locator and see if there is one close to you. I am including a link to O’Keefe’s Testimonials so you can read all the success stories for yourself at:
Here is why it works taken from their website: Water is necessary for the survival of each and every cell in the body because skin cells require water to function properly and effectively as our body's first line of defense. When skin cells become dehydrated, or lose a portion of their water content, they lose their elasticity and our skin feels dry and rigid. Dry, rigid skin can become split and cracked. These cracks are essentially breaks in the protective barrier between our bodies and the outside world. Cracked skin can no longer defend our bodies against invasion by foreign organisms and bacteria, and this can lead to inflammation and/or infection.
Moisture is a key ingredient to the natural healing process of dry, cracked skin. For O'Keeffe's, the difference is what's not in the formula instead of what is. Our oil-free formulation pulls water in, and doesn't repel it like nearly all other offerings. So, chapped hands and cracked feet get the moisture and hydration they need to get better. O'Keeffe's oil-free formula was developed by a pharmacist to stimulate the skin's natural healing process by attracting and retaining moisture to hydrate the skin, altering pH levels, increasing blood circulation and retaining moisture.
There are many products on the market that promise to treat or heal dry, cracked skin. Unfortunately, most fail to deliver. This is because the majority of lotions and creams contain oil and/or oil-based ingredients (examples of common oils used in skincare products include: mineral oil, lanolin, petrolatum, olive oil, almond oil, Shea butter, cocoa butter, and coconut oil.), which sit on the surface of the skin and repel moisture. The oil does not allow water or other moisturizing compounds to penetrate into the skin's dehydrated cells, so although the surface of the skin may feel better, the skin cells are still starving for moisture.

Bare Body Soaps

I received in the mail as part of a product review Bare Body soaps. Bare Body soaps are organic homemade soaps made in Wyoming. They have a variety of soaps Organic Green Tea and Lemongrass, Organic Lemon Verbena, Organic Lavender, Organic Almond, Organic Cocoa Mint, Organic Rose Geranium, Organic Man, Organic Patchouli Orange and Organic Oatmeal. I chose Cocoa Mint and Patchouli Orange. Both are wonderful scents. I love how the soaps are Organic and homemade which means they are good for your skin with no chemicals. The soaps are $6.00 a bar and can be purchased online at . I used the soap in the shower this am and the scent is still lingering on my skin which is great since a lot of companies where you may work won’t allow you to wear perfumes or anything scented due to people with allergies so a great alternative. Best way to keep the soap lasting longer is to use a well-drained soap dish or shower caddy which will keep the soap dry. Let me know which scent is your favorite. You can also follow Bare Body Soaps on Facebook at:
Also watch the website for Friday Giveaways if you’re like me I love my freebies and they can make great gifts, Christmas will be here before you know it start planning now.

Paleo Beef Jerky / Caveman Fuel

I received in the mail as part of a product review Caveman Beef Jerky in Peppered and Original flavors. Caveman Jerky is part of the Paleo diet.The Paleo Diet, also known as paleolithic diet or caveman diet, is centered in providing the body the natural foods it is meant to consume. The human body evolved for more than 2 million years with the food found in nature: game meat, unfarmed fish, vegetables, wild fruits, eggs, nuts, seeds, etc. The Paleo Diet suggests the types of foods we ate many, many generations ago. These foods are high in beneficial nutrients including antioxidants, vitamins, soluble fiber, omega-3 and monounsaturated fats, and low-glycemic carbohydrates that promote good health. And are low in the "foods" like refined sugars and grains, saturated and trans fats, high-glycemic carbohydrates, and processed foods that frequently cause diabetes, cardiovascular disease, weight gain and other health problems. With The Paleo Diet, dieters are encouraged to replace dairy and grain products with more nutrient rich foods like healthful meats, vegetables, nuts and seeds. We call this diet The Paleo Diet because it includes the food that was available to us for most of our evolution during the paleolithic era, starting about 2.5 million years ago. This diet is a natural nutritional plan based on Mother Nature's wisdom and provides the fuel our bodies are designed for. It is based upon extensive scientific research examining the types and quantities of foods our ancestors ate during the hunter-gatherer era. The foundation of The Paleo Diet is naturally raised meats, vegetables, nuts and seeds as well as herbs and other natural seasonings and limited fruit consumption. The Caveman Beef Jerky is all natural and the cattle are grain feed. You can learn more about them or the Paleo Diet by visiting The Jerky costs $12.00 a bag and can be purchased from their website. If you like beef jerky you will love the flavor of this. My mom thought the Peppered one was too peppery but everyone else thought it was yummy. Try some today and see which your favorite is.

The Protein Bakery

I received in the mail as part of a product review The Protein Bakery, an assortment of brownies, Blondie’s and cookies. The Protein Bakery started back in 1997 by a fitness instructor. I received my box wrapped in black polka dotted tissue paper which was so neatly wrapped to make sure the product reached you safely and thought that was a great personal touch. Since the brownies, Blondie’s and cookies are made from scratch in small batches makes them very tasty. I love the taste of the cookies, brownies and Blondie’s and could only eat half at a time as I got full quick which was nice so I would not over indulge The nutrition benefit of eating The Protein Bakery products is they are Trans Fat Free, Preservative Free and Wheat Flour Free, Nutritionally Balanced, natural ingredients. Some of the ingredients used are Whey Protein which has more protein then an egg or a glass of milk, heart-healthy rolled oats, organic light brown sugar and the finest chocolate they also offer over 20 flavors of creative culinary confections. You can visit their website at the prices start at $3.25 and goes up depending on what you want. If you are in the New York area you can call and set up an appointment to visit the Bakery Loft. These would make a great party dessert or a gift for someone. You can also follow them on the follow social networking sites:

Roaring Springs Paper Products

I recently had the opportunity to review Roaring Springs Paper Products. I have grown up in a state where paper mills are a way of life but with trees being cut and not being replanted until recently trees are becoming scares in a sense. What Roaring Springs Paper Products does is makes paper with sugar cane instead of wood what a great idea! The sugar cane are recycled fibers . You may be asking does it look like paper. The answer is yes. I got 2 note pads and 4 wide landscape color pads. I love the color pads I gave one to my 5 year old niece as she likes to draw and because this is a wide pad she is able to get the entire picture on the paper as you know when kids draw they like to make big pictures and you end up with it on the table or floor sometimes. Roaring Springs sells all types of paper products You find them on Facebook at: Another new product I would like to mention is Smart Fab . Smart Fab is Smart-Fab is the smart alternative to paper and cloth. Available in a range of brilliant, non-fading colors, it’s an innovative non-woven fabric that’s easy to cut, fold, glue, sew and staple – and even paint and draw on. Smart-Fab is strong, yet flexible - but doesn’t’t fray. And, it’s recyclable! You can learn more about this great craft project by visiting you also find them on Pintrest at  and Facebook at:

Send A Ball

I received in the mail as part of a product review Send a Ball. You may be asking yourself what is Send a Ball? It is a personal greeting ball you can send for any occasion, so instead of sending a card send a ball which is way more fun and it comes to you without packaging so you see this unique gift right away instead of opening a box or envelope or they do offer an option for a bag delivery . It comes all types of colors and whatever you want it to say. You can learn more about them by visiting: this unique gift can brightens anyone’s day and who would not love to receive a personalized ball? The pricing for the Send a ball is also reasonable. Here is a history of the company I got from their website: a family business headquartered in Chicago. It is owned by a couple of BALLSY sisters who live across the street from each other in the same northwest side Chicago neighborhood they grew up in. They have been sending balls since the 90s, but one day in 2003, it seemed this CRAZY idea was meant to be a BUSINESS.
Michele tells it like this:
How did it start? I come from the direct mail world, so I knew the mailing rules. I made a practice of sending silly things in the mail over the years. One day I was in Osco, saw a BIN of bouncy balls, grabbed one and thought "I can mail this". Took a sharpie, addressed it to my BFF Sharon, wrote "Have BALL with your new baby", went to the post office and mailed it. Sharon loved it so much, my sister and i sent them again and again to other friends. A few years later while standing in line at the post office, a guy behind me asked about the balls and asked if I could send one for him. Initially I instructed him in the steps to do it himself, but by the time we got to the front of the line, he had given me the info and $5. Laughing, I called my sister and told her how funny that just was. She said, " MICH, I THINK WE ARE ONTO SOMETHING".
Melisa tells it like this: When I got that call, I told Michele I had just been to an OPRAH the night before about women who took a chance & started a business with their unique ideas; I told her to listen to me, (she is older) and told her that these were all 'signs' and WE should start a business, and NOW.
Number one rule - if someone offers to pay you to do something you are already doing, you may have a business!!! (Donny Deutsch said this all the time on his show THE BIG IDEA). Sendaball has been very fortunate to have been growing since 2003 by taking baby steps in the business world. Our customers are the absolute best, and most order over and over. Many of the people who get a sendaball in the mail, order a ball for someone else. We enjoy hearing the stories from the customers about how a simple ball coming in the mail can bring so much laughter. Oh the stories we could tell. Maybe we should write a book!Michele is married and has four children. Melisa is married and has 3 children.Before starting SENDaBALL, we spent many hours trying to come up with a way to run a business so at least ONE of us could stay home with the children. Who would have thought the idea was there all along. One of our brothers, Marc (we call him Sparky), lives next door. His wife, Deanna works for SENDaBALL, too. It is truely a family affair. The sisters have two other brothers who don't live on the same block, but are certainly ON CALL if they are needed.
If you ever have a story to share, just drop us an email - we love this stuff. or

Simple Green

I received in the mail as part of a product review Simple Green. I know you must have heard of Simple Green as the first product I remember seeing from them was the hand gel but now they have a whole line of products Automotive, Household, Pet, Laundry and so much more. I had the opportunity to try the Household Products which was Stone Cleaner, Stone polisher, Stainless Steel Polish and Cleaner. These products are designed as a lot of homes these days have granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances. I myself love granite countertops and using this product on them makes them shine and sparkle. I find Simple Green to be a trusted name, just like Lysol, Windex, Tide and so on. If you have a dog in your home and you have a hard time getting the dog smell out try the new Simple Green Pet line and see if it works for your home. You can visit their website at and see the whole line of products I just saw the laundry detergent I am so excited to try it I will have to see if it sold locally in my state and on the website it gives locations where to buy it. They also have cleaning tips, Contests and so much more. I have included history of the company I got from their website:
Our Mission: “As a socially responsible company, Sunshine Makers, Inc. is committed to being the worldwide market leader, providing high quality, environmentally safer cleaning products.” The Simple Green® story began over thirty years ago, long before “environmentally friendly” products were mandated by law. Bruce FaBrizio and his father developed a safer alternative to the toxic cleaners then being used to remove tannic acid, a by-product of coffee roasting, from roasting machinery. It took three years to perfect the biodegradable, not-toxic, non-flammable, non-abrasive formula. After its initial success, Bruce began selling Simple Green to automotive and industrial customers in 55-gallon drums; which he delivered in his van, for use as a cleaner on equipment and floors. In 1979, just as initial retail marketing efforts were beginning to pay off, Bruce’s father died. Bruce managed to keep the business alive and in 1981 gave his company the name it continues to carry — Sunshine Makers, Inc. Simple Green was then introduced nationally into several new markets including Hardware/Do It Yourself, consumer grocery & drug, GSA (government) and Club-Store classes of trade. In the early 1990s, Bruce created the Environmental Technology Division within his company in order to define the cutting edge of today’s cleaning solutions and solidify his company’s high standards for environmental responsibility. Today, over 3 million dollars have been spent to prove the safety and efficacy claims of Simple Green. Sunshine Makers, Inc. is still owned and operated by Bruce P. FaBrizio. Bruce lives in Corona Del Mar, California with his wife Viviana and their happy family of five pampered pooches. Sunshine Makers, Inc. has its headquarters in Huntington Beach, California, with satellite offices all over the world. Simple Green is manufactured in Garden Grove, California – Lawrenceville, Georgia – Rydalmere, Australia and Bernburg, Germany. Additional distribution centers are located in Maastricht, Netherlands and Choisy le Roi, France. Satellite sales offices are strategically located across the United States. The Simple Green family of products has expanded to encompass consumer and industrial product lines. Original Simple Green and the entire family of Simple Green products are now a part of everyday life in millions of homes, commercial and industrial sites, not only in the United States but all over the world. In 1989, Bruce FaBrizio and Simple Green founded the EGBAR® Foundation. EGBAR is an acronym for Everything’s Gonna Be All Right. The foundation is funded by a percentage of Simple Green sales, which goes toward a national education curriculum that teaches children about the environment and how to care for it. Funds also support community clean-up projects, and most recently, partnerships with The Catalina Island Conservancy and The SEA Lab. These partners also focus on improving children’s understandings of environmental issues and supports actions toward improving the environment around us. With the support of Simple Green, as well as the generous donations from people all over the world, the EGBAR Foundation is making a difference by teaching everyone to “Think Globally, Act Locally.”
A complete listing of our Global Partners, including many of their international websites can be found at
I like how back in the beginning of the company they cared about “Mother Earth” and made products biodegradable. Give them a try today and find your new/old favorite product.

Soda Stream

I was so excited to try soda stream and I can’t say why except I had seen the commercial on TV and thought it was a neat idea. I like how it is “user friendly” and better for the environment oppose to cans and bottles although you can recycle cans and bottles not everyone does. The other great thing about soda stream is one container of soda equals 3 2 liter bottles which a great savings if you bought them individually or your family goes through a lot of soda. I received the flavors cola, ginger ale, diet cola, root beer and more.
So tired my Soda Stream following the instructions listed but I never heard a 3 like popping noise and I forgot to screw the bottle on so the first try I made a lovely mess but since there was not a lot of sugar in the mixes it did not make your clothes sticky like it would have been other soda. I made the Root Beer and I really enjoyed the taste and I like how you can put as much carbon in it as you want, I myself like hardly any carbon because it makes me so gases. I got the Fountain Jet and they make a variety of machines seven total so to decide what would be best for you go to their website and see which one is best for your needs. You can also find where to purchase CO2 and the mixes for your machine. The price starts at $79 and goes up from there for the machine. They have new Crystal Light and Country Time great for summer and less calories and sugar. Try them today and see what flavor you would like.

Gutzy Gear

Do you have a child going back to school? Well I have a great gift for you Gutzy GearGutzy Gear are patches designed to show your child’s creative side and personality to their back pack straps. I wish they had these when I was in school I would have loved to personalize my back pack as the plain boring strap were lame. I got Sponge Bob, Monster High, smiley faces and dog patches. They come in a package of 2 and also instead of putting them directly on your back pack strap you can buy straps that can go over the existing strap and can easily come off. The patches can be removed easily as well  and changed when ever you want. You can visit their website at and see all the patched they offer and other fun stuff. This is a unique gift for your child and such a great idea it will help build your child's self esteem  so get some today. Besides going on your back pack strap it can also go on your duffle bag, guitar strap, bike, a scooter, seat belt, pretty much anything that has a strap.

Arctic Zero

I received in the mail as part of a product review Arctic Zero Frozen dessert. Arctic Zero should not be confused with ice cream although it may look like ice cream it isn’t. I got the flavors in pint sizes Vanilla Maple, Strawberry, Cookies and Cream, Chocolate, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Mint Chocolate Chip, Coffee and Pumpkin Spice. This are intended for those who want an alternative to ice cream it is a protein shake in ice cream form basically. Here are what they attributes: Less than 150 Calories Per Pint, Gluten Free, Fat Free, Suitable for those who are lactose intolerance, Contains only Natural or Organic ingredients, Low Glycemic and suitable for Type 2 diabetics, 14 Grams of Whey Protein Per Pint, Kosher, Non-Gmo, 8 Grams of Fiber, Great for Kids. Besides Protein Pints they offer Protein Bars. You purchase these locally in your state and to find which stores carrier it go to their website at: in my state there are 6 locations that carry Arctic Zero. I tried the Strawberry so far and it has an interesting flavor tastes like Strawberries the consistency is like ice cream but firmer. It does have an after taste but anything that is good for you is going to taste different at first until you get use to eating healthier then you will notice the difference. Like if someone never ate Dairy Queen Ice Cream and all of a sudden they start eating it will taste really sweet and too much for them to handle. I would say give Arctic Zero a try and find your favorite. This is good for those also who are dieting or on a High Protein low Carbohydrate diet as Protein can be very filling.

Water Wipes

I received in the mail as part of a product review Water wipes made by Derma H2O. Water wipes are a natural baby wipes which are also fragrance, and preservative free. The reason for this is so it won’t cause a rash or irritate on your babies’ skin. Besides Water Wipes they also have Dribble Bibs. I tried the Water Wipes and found they were hard to tear off but still worked really well. You can learn more about Water Wipes by visiting their website at they can be purchased thru or
Water Wipes VS. Other Brands:
What is found in other leading brands:
Sodium Laurel Sulphate – This is a commercial detergent found in most baby and child products and can trigger eczema if exposed to the skin in high concentrations
Propylene Glycol – Widely used in baby and child products, this chemical has been linked to conditions that depress the central nervous system
Phthalates – An American study has suggested this family of chemicals, which are used in some baby and child hygiene products, may cause early puberty in girls and reproductive problems in boys
What Is Found in Water Wipes:
99.9% water
0.1% fruit extract
That reason alone is enough to switch to a more natural baby wipe. When your parents were growing up they used cloth diapers and more than likely was wipes with a wash cloth or paper towel with water on it so why not go back to the way things were and why use unnecessary harm scents and chemicals is that what you want for your baby?

Veri Peri

I received in the mail as part of a product review a variety of sauces from Veri Peri.  The flavors I got were Mild, Hot, Veri Hot, Lemon & Herb, and Garlic. I just stumbled across them while surfing the internet and thought those would be interesting to try. They are from Africa and I have never tried anything from the African culture and have from other cultures. I thought it may be similar to Mexican hot sauces but this is different and should be classified as such. It is made with South Africa’s bird’s eye chili’s. The price per bottle is $4.99 and can be purchased online thru the website of at Amazon. The versatility of the sauces is amazing from marinating to salads to dips for your favorite foods. You can visit the website at . Try some today and let me know which one is your favorite and also tell me what dish it tastes the best to you on.

I also have included a history of the company I got from their website: Celebrating 30 Years | 1982 - 2012
It seems like only yesterday when my parents, after returning from a trip to Germany, showed me a children’s card game that would be the beginning of Safari Ltd®. Its theme was endangered species. The year was 1979. A few years later in 1986, we signed the most important license agreement in the company’s history with the Carnegie Museum of Natural History. This license allowed us to produce authentic, scale-model dinosaur figures with the collaboration of their paleontologists. 25 years later, children, adult collectors and educators worldwide enjoy purchasing these unique replicas. As a fascinating side-note, I discovered that some of the original painters in the factory are still painting some of the same Carnegie dinosaurs 25 years later. This collection has longevity thanks to you!The founders of Safari Ltd®, my parents and Alexandre’s grandparents, had a passion to share the unique beauty of wildlife with children. After 3 generations, Safari Ltd® continues to forge ahead with their vision. For 2012, we are offering an abundant of delightful products that assist in the "joy of play". Our toys are inspired by nature, fueling the imagination and speaking to the innate curiosity in all of us.We thank all of you for our 30 years in business and we hope to enjoy another 30!
