Smart Shield- Serious Sun Protection

This summer meant a lot of outdoor time and fun, we always make sure to use some for of sun protection. What people sometimes forget is as we send our children back to school the sun is still very much a threat. Recently my family received the chance to review a product called Smart Shield. Smart Shield is a Continuous spray sunscreen that you can wear all day every day. It is oil free so it won't stain your clothing or clog your pores. It is made to help let your skin breath, which helps you stay cooler, since it is quickly absorbed into your skin. The product is hypoallergenic, PABA free and DEET free for safe family protection.

We have used nearly the entire bottle now and it is still spraying very well. I love that it doesn't spit little blobs all over that I have to wipe with my hands. You have probably noticed by now if you read the blog regularly that my middle son never seems to have a shirt on.lol I couldn't tell you why but he jsut doesn't like them, and when we are out in the backyard nothing changes, he is actually less likely to wear a shirt. So of course here I am spraying him. I have noticed it does leave a slight film on his skin, but it doesn't seem to be oily when he sweats. We have yet to encounter a sun burn while using this product even with 4-6 hours in between uses. With summer far from being over here is West Texas I will be picking up another bottle this week.
To try this product for yourself you can check out their site and find a retailer near you HERE. Or you can simply order from their site :) make sure to check out all the great news and stay up to date with them on Facebook and Twitter.

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …

With summer time in full force here in West Texas getting some new summer time clothing was not only a needed thing but a fun thing to do. We decided to try out The Children's Place online ordering.

She really had so much fun with this and she loves her new flips flops(because the 5 pairs she…

Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler Review and Giveaway

Recently I was given an amazing opportunity to review a new product by Rubbermaid called the Hidden Recycler. As a family who does a lot to help our planet in many ways this was an exciting opportunity. I loved the fact the Rubbermaid not only made a product that would help my family continue their recycling more easily but they reduced packaging to merely a cardboard sleeve that I could in turn recycle. I quickly opened the package like a kid at Christmas and discovered it would not fit my kitchen cabinets :O( we are in the middle of a kitchen remodel and the layout of my old cabinets would not hold the brackets.  So as I sat down to gloat about not being able to use this amazing product, and I notice two holes on the lid and made a massive dash for the directions. Sure enough I can attach it with screws! (Which ironically took me forever to find in our construction materials) I found the perfect place for it in my laundry room and began putting all of Rubbermaid's claims to the …
