Yabbly Great Decisions $300 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway!!!

Yabbly is an online community of thoughtful people who help each other make great purchasing decisions everyday. They were finalists in SxSW 2013 in the social category and are a top 3 search result in “product reviews” on the iPhone app store. Now we all know how hard it is to get to the top 10 in the eyes of Apple. So that is pretty big news. Get the Yabbly App today. It’s free!

The Yabbly philosophy is that the best purchasing decisions are made through dialogue with actual people who have made similar decisions recently. They believe that one of the main frustrations about online shopping today is that averaging a bunch of reviews just doesn’t cut it, and you’re left buying a product and simply hoping for the best.

Breakdown on how Yabbly works and you will see why it works for you, you and yes, even you:

Yabbly even guarantees an answer to your question within 24 hours for free! Unlike other Q&A sites like Quora.

SPD and Weighted Vests: a Product #Review

My 13 year old son has been diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder. If you have not heard of SPD, it is a term that refers to the way the nervous system receives messages from the senses and turns them into appropriate motor and behavioral responses. A person with SPD finds it difficult to process and act upon information received through the senses, which creates challenges in performing countless everyday tasks. Motor clumsiness, behavioral problems, anxiety, depression, school failure, and other impacts may result if the disorder is not treated effectively. One study (Ahn, Miller, Milberger, McIntosh, 2004) shows that at least 1 in 20 children’s daily lives is affected by SPD.

There are so many activities that can be done with SPD kids to help them to regulate their nervous system, many can be done with items you already have at home such as: making a sensory box & filling it with sand and other tactile objects, laying or sitting on a balance ball (the kind you use for exercise), even Play Dough can be used as a tool for “play therapy” or OT for these children. The great part about play therapy is that it is playing for kids, so they don’t even realize it’s actually helping them on a whole different level! There are also many wonderful products out to assist children with SPD. One such product is a weighted vest or blanket. The blankets are great for helping kids with SPD calm down and go to sleep. The weighted vests are wonderful for shorter periods of time, such as school use for calming and improving focus.

The nice people at Therapy Shoppe were gracious enough to give me a weighted vest for review. I have to say, since Noah has started wearing his vest, he is so much more calm and able to self-regulate, which is a HUGE deal. I can definitely see a big difference from when he’s not wearing the vest and we’ve used it quite a bit. The Therapy Shoppe  weighted vest is also one of the most reasonably prices vests I’ve seen, starting at just $52.99 and it is well made. The vest comes in a denim outer material and is lined with a cotton/poly blend with weights in velcro pockets and a velcro closure. As you can see in my pictures, it looks like a part of Noah’s outfit and can even be work underneath shirts.

This is the vest on Noah by itself.

I’ve seen other weighted vests prices upwards of $100 so the Therapy Shoppe  weighted vests is a great deal! I highly recommend this vest and if you check out their website, you can browse their catalog which is chock full of other great therapy products!

I’m a Puffs Fresh Faces Blogger! + #Giveaway

I received my Puffs Fresh Faces Blogger Kit and have to say, if you have not tried the Fresh Faces saline wipes yet, they are a real treat. They are “Boogie Wipes” for adults. If you haven’t heard of Boogie Wipes, then ask me sometime because I love talking all about them and I’m a “Saline Ambassador” for them. For the longest time, people I know have been asking for a “grown-up” version of a Boogie Wipe. Because they tend to have kid-friendly scents like Grape, some adults would shy away from using them. Thank goodness for the Licensing Agreement established with Proctor & Gamble and Little Busy Bodies, LLC, because we are all lucky to have Puffs Fresh Faces. The wipes come in fabulous scents like “light lavender”, “fresh scent”, “fragrance free”, and coming soon: “Vicks”! They are designed specially to meet the needs of your face, so they’re not just great for when you have a runny nose. I’ve found them to be great for removing makeup, especially with my sensitive skin, these saline wipes are a dream & they actually work!

Little Busy Bodies, LLC was established by two moms from Portland, OR who developed the saline wipes and have grown their company to reach $10 million in sales with products available in 50,000 stores across the US and Canada such as target, Walgreens, Wal-Mart, and Toys R’ Us.

You can visit http://www.boogiewipes.com for more information and http://www.puffsfreshfaces.com

I am giving away this fabulous backpack, pedometer as well as a whole box of 45 of the light lavender scent wipes from Puffs Fresh Faces!
