DaffaDoot

With the planning of baby #2 my Husband and I have been looking at all of the new amazing products available for babies and DaffaDoot has got a few amazing ones I’d love to share!

cribwedge-ad1v2-620x350.jpg

** SPECIFICS ABOUT OUR CRIB WEDGE:

DaffaDoot Baby Reflux Wedge Pillow. For babies who frequently suffer from reflux or dramatically spit-up. It’s a safe, sound baby reflux treatment which gently elevates the baby’s head and torso to help alleviate discomfort due to frequent stomach acid or frequent spitting up. Happy baby equals happy parents!

What makes the DaffaDoot Reflux Wedge Pillow special:
Many wedges are “foldable”, which means that it’s actually two smaller wedge pieces held together by a cover. In other words, it is split and can “gap” under baby. Foldable wedges are marketed as “convenient to store”… but this feature degrades its performance. It’s better to have a wedge which focuses on performance instead of focusing on easy storage. Foldable wedges, since they are in multiple pieces, are also more likely to shift around. Our wedge is a single, stable, correctly sized piece with a non-skid bottom and a hypoallergenic, waterproof casing. The zipper is at the back of the wedge (to keep it well away from baby) and our foam is the perfect firmness (not too soft, not too hard). It meets and exceeds federal safety regulations. These regulations dictate that the wedge must extend the entire width of the crib mattress (27”). Anything else is not snug enough.We are using an eco-friendly zippered bag to package our wedge. This can be used to store your wedge in later, or as a blanket bag today.

**SPECIFICS ABOUT OUR CAR SEAT PROTECTOR:

Traveling with kids requires so many things… the proper child car seats and booster seats, snacks to keep everyone happy, a little extra protection while we are potty training, toys to keep little ones occupied… And many of these things can turn the back seat into a war zone.

Introducing the DaffaDoot Car Seat Protector. It’s Impeccable Quality combined with Perfect Functionality. Make your ride a little easier by protecting your back seat against all of this wear and tear. Our high quality car seat protective pad liner will extend the life of your seats and protect from all the damage the edges of your child’s car seat or booster can cause.

Colorado Renaissance Festival

An every year tradition in my family is to visit the Colorado Renaissance Festival. I remember going as a child and the fun memories have lasted over many years. My Children have such a blast – From seeing beautiful fairies to knights in full armor, they’ve got hundreds of things for children to see and do.

My beautiful Family

But they don’t skimp on pleasing the adults – They’ve got alcoholic beverages from beers, ciders and margaritas for only $4.50! As well as decently priced meals and snacks!

Now.. Not only do they have fun festival games but they’ve also got camel/llama rides, pirate shows, jousting and royalty parades! I don’t think I’ve ever seen my step-daughter light up as much as when she saw the princesses.. A look I’ve seen before on myself when I too was younger : ❥

Hudson loved the beautiful ladies in their fancy dresses (Such a flirt…) but I think his favorite moment was the camel rides.. He lit up like a Christmas tree : ❥

I highly recommend the Colorado Renaissance festival to anyone!! Families, Singles, Adults, ANYONE. You’ll have a blast from the PAST 😉

Fondue Fairytails at The Melting Pot

Y’all with girls are sure to understand – There is nothing more magical than princesses… My step-daughter LOVES all things Princess, even at 7 years old and I love it. It reminds me of a simpler time when I too still envisioned myself as a princess finding my prince charming 😉

20180624_123924

When I heard The Melting Pot in Louisville, CO had a Fondue Fairytails event I HAD to take my kids! My step daughter dressed up in a lovely Arielle dress, a tiara and brought a mini koala pet.. “Because every princess has a small pet in the movies..”

The boys dressed in their Sunday best and we made our way to their restaurant! It was SO adorable – It looked like an old mine.. Very Colorado-esque!

20180624_113230

Their staff was so welcoming and sweet and REALLY got into the Prince and Princess roles.. It was so genuine and fun for the kids. We were sat down and immediately greeted by one of the best waiters we’ve ever had – Kay! She was so sweet and REALLY got our kids excited about the foods and events!

20180624_121759

It was only $34.95 per adult and $19.95 per kid and it included a 4 course meal!! The kids were ecstatic when asked which kind of chocolate sauce they wanted in the end 😉

20180624_115702

All of the meals were amazing and they were very accommodating to food allergies/preferences!

There was dancing, singing, games, hand outs of tiaras/crowns/wands and in the end they gave the kids autographed photos of Princess LaFonda (HAHAHA – She said it was like Napoleon Dynamite) and the King (Who told Brent he was going to the “Pit of despair, dilly dilly” LOL)

20180624_115056
Their cocktails were divine

It was such an amazing experience for both my kids and us adults and we’ll absolutely be back SOON (The kids are already asking!)

20180624_123943

Thank you Melting Pot for creating such a fun event for our kiddos – We love restaurants like you!

20180624_115546
Hudson stole his sissy’s tiara.. LOL 😉

They’ll have quite a few more Fondue Fairytale dates available at their Louisville location – July 8th and 22nd as well as August 5th and 19th. Check them out – You WON’T be disappointed!

Mama’s Jewelry

Wanted to tell y’all about the amazing jewelry I received from Mamas Jewelry! I got some pieces for myself and my Mother and SO happy I did. She loved the pieces and thought they were WAY more expensive than they were!

I also got myself a pair of their earrings and have gotten a ton of compliments already!

Whitening Sensitive Teeth at Home

Disclosure: Some of the links below are affiliate links, meaning at no additional cost to you, I will earn a commission if you click through and make a purchase.

Anyone else drink an exorbitant amount of tea and coffee?! Well, I’m a Mom so yeah I sure do. As much as I absolutely love it, it has caused my teeth to lose it’s pearly luster which has definitely hit my self-esteem a little.

So after using the same whitening toothpaste for the past 2 years with minimal results I decided I needed to look elsewhere for a solution! I’m sure you’ve seen all of the celebrities on Instagram with their whitening LED posts – They look promising but the at-home light is not the same frequency as the dentists’ so it definitely doesn’t whiten nearly as effectively so decided that was out of the question.

Same research, the strips seemed great but they create issues with not staying put long enough to have lasting effects as well as causing extreme sensitivity in some cases. (Which all whitening products do because of the gel but it sure wouldn’t be enjoyable for with those with super sensitive teeth like myself!) And the widely popular charcoal is just too abrasive for teeth – It can erode enamel regardless of how fine it is.

With all of these options I decided there was only one I really wanted to give a shot – Whitening Tray Kits. They are custom fitted to your teeth for a complete whitening coverage, are safe for gums and enamel and are the same methods dentists use. But there are companies out there that use the same dentist methods without the huge bill!

That’s how I found Smile Brilliant – It’s been a complete game changer!! I bought their T6 Sensitive System for average stains for only $175. It comes with one custom set of custom trays, 18 whitening applications and 18 desensitizing applications..

Screenshot_20180510-213156

You begin with creating your custom trays with the paste they provide and it only takes 15 minutes! You then send in your molds and they create a perfect fitting tray and you can begin your whitening journey!

My teeth were sensitive the first few days but the desensitizing gel nipped that in the bud real quick! And my gums never felt sensitive! I am so happy I decided to go with Smile Brilliant the first time instead of trying other methods I was already second guessing..

My confidence is back and my Husband has told me constantly how white and beautiful my teeth look! A HUGE self-esteem boost! Now I drink my tea/coffee through a straw and I don’t care how silly I look – I’ve got to keep these pearlies white

Screen Shot 2018-05-11 at 4.43.21 PM.png

Another random perk of this system is now that I’ve got these custom trays I use them at night for my constant nighttime teeth grinding and don’t have to spend the extra money on another set of trays!

Lucky for y’all, I am collaborating with Smile Brilliant to give one lucky reader of mine a $149 Smile Brilliant Credit towards which ever Whitening System they choose so they too can experience the joy that comes from being able to #SmileFearlessly ! Giveaway ends May 19th – So get those entries in and be sure to enter your email address! Enter HERE!

Open to USA, UK, Australia and Canadian Residents.

Their kits range from $139 to $189 depending on the type of system you’ll require and with my code: SIMPLYKARALIZ20 you can take off an additional 20% ! This is an amazing value when considering the price you’d be charged at a dental office!

Again, I am SO happy I chose Smile Brilliant as it’s completely changed my dental habits and my confidence – Try it for yourself, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed!

Dr. Jacobs Naturals

As y’all know I love all things natural and eco-friendly. And Dr. Jacobs Naturals is JUST that. They’ve got some amazing castile multi-purpose soaps that I’ve been using for my face and shower soap and it’s been incredible!

Screen Shot 2018-05-10 at 9.49.49 PM.png

They’re made with naturally derived scents and oils which leaves a lingering and long lasting smell after use. I’ve completely replaced my normal soaps for them as this weather is causing me extreme dry skin and it’s helped a TON!

I do believe it’s just as important what you put on your body as it is what you put into it because it’s still being absorbed and certain chemicals can be detrimental to your health in the long run!

That’s why I love finding these new products to help steer my family’s lifestyle into a more natural and holistic direction! Try Dr. Jacobs Naturals for yourself, you won’t be disappointed – And the prices are totally fair 😉 They’re also currently running free shipping on all orders over $20.
