Packaways - Reusable Storage Box REVIEW

Packaways is a brand new Storage Box that ships and stores in the flat position. When needed, simply press on opposing corners and the bottom "Automatically" folds into place and locks. When not in use, simply press on the bottom and the box folds back down flat for easy, out of the way storage. Ideal for homes, apartments or living quarters where use is intermitent and space is tight. Many applications: Moving; Back To School; Organizing The Kids' Rooms; Basement or Garage; Seasonal Items, etc. You can color code your things or have the colors match your decor. Proudly made in the U.S.A. from durable corrugated plastic. Great for harsh storage conditions or long-term storage since moisture and humidity won't effect the integrety of the boxes. Will last hundreds of cycles under normal circumstances. Many, many useful applications. Comes with 2 Wipe Away Panels that allow you to conveniently identify the contents of the box. If you use China Dry Erase Markers, you can simply Wipe Away the previous contents and remark the box. Please go to www.packaways.com for more information.

There couldn't have been better timing for me to try Packaways Reusable Storage Boxes! My family is in the process of moving into a new home. I was sent 2 packaways boxes for review. These boxes came in handy and were a much better option than a traditional box. They fold flat when they are not in use, so they were easy to set aside until we were ready to pack. They have a place on the side for a label, which was perfect for labeling which room in the house the box would need to go into. They are re-usable, so it is a much better option than cardboard boxes. They also come in multiple colors, which makes color coordinating organization easy. I wish that we would have had enough of these to fit all of our belongings. I would recommend them to people looking to organize and store their things, or to use them for a move.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Wild Mountain Mommies - Review and GIVEAWAY

As you may have noticed, I have taken a small break from my blog due to medical reasons. I am excited to be back and couldn't be more thrilled about the product I am sharing with you today. Today I want to tell you all about Wild Mountain Mommies! Wild Mountain Mommies is a cloth diaper company that specializes in hand made cloth diapers. Cristina, the owner of Wild Mountain Mommies works both outside the home and in her home. She loves creating diapers that will last the duration of diaper wearing, which is ideal! I cannot tell you how many diapers I have purchased because of the lure of a low price that ended up leaking and falling apart. Quality of craftsmanship and materials make Wild Mountain Mommies diapers last! Wild Mountain Mommies makes custom diapers, one sized or sized pocket diapers, and one sized or sized fitted diapers and covers. Have a fabric in mind for a print? Need a diaper for a specific occasion? I love that she custom makes diapers to fit exactly what you are looking for. She is open to talking about any of your ideas and making them into a reality. 

I was sent a One Size Pocket Diaper for review. This diaper is designed to fit from birth to potty training (about 10-35lbs). The adjustable rise snaps on the front and the snaps along the top make that possible. The diaper can be adjusted to the size of the baby as they grow. This diaper is a great fit on my itty bitty skinny little baby. I also have friends with babies who are large and this brand of diaper also fits them well. I used this diaper for a few weeks and it has been through many washes. I haven't seen even one sign of a leak. This diaper can be used for day time wear or night time wear. The great thing about the pocket style is that more material can be added for extra absorbancy. So, if you would like to use this diaper at night or on a child who tends to be a heavy wetter, just add more into the pocket. The material of the insert is a mix of other materials and zorb2. It folds easily to fit inside the pocket and provides many layers of absorbency. We have never had a leak with this diaper. I would personally recommend this diaper to anyone looking for a great fit, ease of use, and no leaks. 

Wild Mountain Mommies is offering one of my readers a chance to win a Wild Mountain Mommies Pocket Diaper! Please use the rafflecopter form below to enter. Must be 18 years old. Giveaway open to residents of the US.

The UGLee Pen is a revolutionary ergonomic pen that is designed, created and used by a real physician. This Doctor-inspired grip pen is redefining the way people view pens and writing. The UGLee Pen is good for everyone who writes (even just a grocery list), and is especially helpful to people who experience pain and discomfort when writing, for example those with arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, etc. It's also the best writing utensil for children who are learning to write and are developing fine motor skills, as well as helpful for special-needs children who find holding a pen or pencil properly difficult. And for high-school and college students who have to take copious notes, this pen helps keep hands and fingers from cramping.
I liked the way that this pen felt in my hand. It made my writing very fluid and clear. The ink was also very clean. One thing I hate is when ink is wet and messy and is ruined when I turn the page before it dries. This pen has an ink that instantly dries, so this was a perfect pen for me. My toddler daughter also loved them. She thinks that they are toys. So, I let her have one of them and took the ink out of it. So, I can say that it makes a great toddler toy. She was fascinated with it and carried it around with her for about an hour. 
If you are looking for a pen that is easy to write with, clean, and comfortable to hold, you should check out a UGLee pen!

Wordless Wednesday 7/18 LINKY

This post will include some words. :) 

I'm back!!! I took a leave of absence from the blog for about a month. I suffered from an artery dissection and multiple strokes. I am so blessed to be improving each day. I may not post as much at first, but I am hoping to slowly return to the blogging world, starting today. Thank you for all of your thoughts, prayers, and support. Stay tuned for future posts about what happened, where I go from here and how you can help. 
In the meantime, here are some adorable photos from the 4th of July. They are a few weeks late on being posted, but, better late than never right?

Where Has Brookie Been?

Hi. I just wanted to let you all know that I am still here. I am taking a leave of absence from my blog for a bit because of a recent medical issue. I suffered from an artery dissection that lead to multiple strokes. I am improving each day, but it will be a long road to recovery. I do still have a few product reviews that I will be writing soon. I had received products before my stroke. I should have those up soon, and then I will be gone for a little while, but I do plan to come back after I have had some time to recover. I appreciate all of the love and support that I have received and thank you for being understanding.
