Sleepy Face with @kikkopilo

Ever traveled with your toddler and wished there was something comfy to sleep on?  When I was young, my mom would push together 2 chairs at Chinese restaurants and we would have to sleep while the parents chatted and ate dim sum into the late night (8pm was late for a 3 yr old!).  But alas comes an invention that both kids and parents would love and use everyday!

Check out the Kikko Pilo!  It is made of memory foam, can you used anywhere and is transportable, chic and totally useful.  I totally wished that I had this when I was a kid.  So this would make a perfect present for new moms, baby sitters, grandparents and anyone who travels a lot.

Kikkopilo is used for traveling on long fligths and train rides, lightweight, portable,hygienic as it’s easily washed, water proof so no worries about water spills or accidents, removing the cotton it would be used as a changing pad, secondary use is to roll behind lower back or neck and finally it makes a great baby shower gift 🙂

Your new favorite Drink! @SpindriftFresh

Spindrift is the first soda made with fresh squeezed juice. Light, bright and super FRESH, our soda tastes unbelievable, ridiculous and sensational.

Last week I got 6 bottles and I was so excited to try it!

I have never really been a big fan of soda because of the carbonation but Spindrift is lightly carbonated and doesn’t make you burp like crazy. The tiny bubbles dance on your tongue and make the drink really refreshing and delicious to drink.

 Spindrift Soda, a new all-natural fresh squeezed soda. Basically Spindrift is the “anti-soda” soda. It’s made entirely from fresh squeezed fruit (pulp and all) with carbonated triple filtered water and cane sugar and delivered alongside fresh produce.

For more on the production process of Spindrift please see the following link.

Flavors include:

sparkling blackberry – 8 whole blackberries & fresh squeezed lemon juice

orange mango – 1/2 of fresh squeezed orange and alfonso mango puree

lemonade – 1 whole fresh squeezed lemon

grapefruit – 1/4 of fresh squeezed grapefruit & fresh squeezed lemon juice

half & half – fresh brewed tea & 1/4 of fresh squeezed lemon

cranberry raspberry – 16 raspberries, 9 Vermont grown cranberries & fresh squeezed lemon juice.

Spindrift is available nationwide online, as well as in specialty stores across the country.



Clear face with Kolkhuri

When I am stressed it totally shows on my face 🙁  Even though I am in my late 20’s now, I still do get zits from time to time. Sometimes they are the under the skin kind that just kills!  I have 5 pimples on my face —> on my nose, by my mouth, on my forehead :(:( that will not go away so I will be testing out Kolkhuri on it this week!  Check back next week to see if I have a clear face.

Once you have tried everything on the market, you will know what products really work for your skin or not.  You can use Kolkhuri in many different ways:

Anything from Minor skin cuts, Skin ulcers and abscesses; Scrapes and bruises; Gets rid of Pimples and Acne; Burns and Sunburned skin; Insect and Mosquitoes Bites;
Chapped or Cracked Skin, Cracked Heels; Post-surgical Wounds, Hard-healing Sores; Drying effects of wind, cold weather; Furuncles and Boils; Pressure Sores, Pressure Ulcers, and Bedsores; Protects and accelerates the recovery of in any way compromised skin.

I have tried so many products on the market like Burts Bee Blemish Stick, ZapZit and other products but nothing has natural ingredients  like Kolkhuri…

**We are giving 10 of these away so if you want to try it, just leave me a message here and we will ship it out to you!

 Based on the millenium old natural herbal remedies, enriched with natural plant extracts and essential oils, the multi-purpose skin ointment Kolkhuri™ provides the most effective protection and healing for various skin problems. Its universal and versatile spectrum of effects is determined not by synthesized chemicals, which it does NOT contain, but by the natural plant extracts and essential oils that are known for various virtues.

Getting rid of occasional pimples, as well as persistent pimples of any severity, can be very easy with Universal Skin OintmentKolkhuri™. The ointment can be useful for severe Acne cases too. While some Acne cases can’t be fully treated with any skin remedy unless the underlying causes are addressed, Kolkhuri™ does the best job of getting rid of every individual acne papule (pimple) for most of Acne cases. If applied persistently and regularly, the ointment gets rid of acne papules in several days: it may be the best treatment currently available, alongside Tea Tree Oil and Aloe Vera.

Suggested use for Pimples and Acne:

It is recommended to apply a thicker layer of the ointment on each pustule (papule) just before going to bed. You do not have to massage, and the areas do not have to be covered. In the morning, wash the areas thoroughly and, if daily activities allow it, apply thin layers of the ointment to the same places. The effect can be quite amazing.  In severe cases of Acne Vulgaris more persistent application of the ointment may be required – in combination with the usual hygiene measures recommended in the case of Acne. As for the other alternative medicine remedies, such as tea tree oil, Kolkhuri™ can be considered minimum as a supplemental treatment, if not a better substitute for tea tree oil.



Clean up Puppy! @Planetdog1997

Planet Dog’s new Waterless 2-in-1 Shampoo conveniently turns bathing into an easy one-step process by offering a conditioning dry-wash formula made from a blend of naturally derived ingredients:  coconut; coconut oil; oatmeal and almond extracts; and oatmeal and almond fragrances.  Waterless shampoos are an emerging favorite, and our version contains no synthetic dyes and is easy to use.  Just spray liberally onto a dry or damp coat, brush, rub or comb it in and then dry with a towel – no water or rinsing necessary.        

The Oatmeal 2-in-1 Shampoo offers a soothing and conditioning blend of naturally derived ingredients:  coconut; coconut oil; oatmeal and almond extracts; and oatmeal and almond fragrances.  When applied to a wet coat, it forms a conditioning, easy-to-rinse lather. The natural conditioners in the formula leave the coat soft and tangle-free.

Planet Dog’s Deodorizing Shampoo is also naturally derived from coconut and coconut oil, but it also utilizes a blend of odor-neutralizing compounds that bond with and neutralize malodor molecules, rendering them permanently undetectable. The deodorizing combination helps eliminate skunk and other tough odors.

The new Healing Shampoo was specifically formulated to relieve dry, itchy and irritated skin.  It clams and soothes the skin and is an effective treatment for skin allergies, eczema and hot spots. It also includes naturally derived ingredients from coconut and is pH balanced with coconut oil and eucalyptus.  Planet Dog refers to it as their “medicated” shampoo due to chloroxylenol (PCX), a highly effective and anti-microbial active ingredient that helps treat common skin irritations.    


The Oatmeal 2-in-1 Shampoo, Deodorizing Shampoo and Healing Shampoo are sold in 16-ounce and one gallon recyclable containers.  The Waterless 2-in-1 Shampoo is only available in the 16-ounce size.  Retailers and groomers can place an order at or by calling Planet Dog toll-free at 800-381-1516.  Consumers can purchase them online at, by calling Planet Dog or at retailers nationwide.
