The FOOTer & The Ritz Kids - #ProductReview

The Footer & The Ritz Kids – a portable foot measuring devices for adults and kids.

How many times have you bought your kids (or yourself) the wrong size shoes? Perhaps you’ve been buying the wrong shoe size all along.

Wearing the right size of shoe is important for posture, balance, and growth and development in your legs and feet. However, measuring your kids’ feet for new shoes is often a guessing game. If you are like me, you prefer to shop for your kids clothes online or alone in a store without them in tow. And when you do take them out to the store, you are lucky if they sit still long enough for you to get an accurate measurement. The result – you buy ill-fitting shoes that are the wrong size and that is good for no one.

The Footer is a lightweight collapsible plastic foot measuring device designed to let you measure the length and width of your foot or your child’s foot quickly and easily. It comes with an easy to read conversion chart to make sure you are getting the right size and width for your child’s foot. The fact that you can take it with you in your purse means you don’t have to rely on a store employee to play the guessing game with you. Simply pull the Footer out of your bag, measure your child’s foot, use the conversion chart, then select the right size shoe.

For moms like me, who’d rather measure their child’s foot at home, you’d like the newest member to the Footer Family. The brand new Ritz Kids is a wooden foot measuring device specifically designed for kids’ feet. I like the fact that I can use it at home to get the right shoe size, and then head to the stores or go online without needing to guess at a shoe size. 

I used both of these devices to check my kids shoe sizes. They were excited to see how big their feet were. And my husband (a big kid himself) was also curious to see how it measured his extra wide feet. Its super easy to use!

Both the original Footer and the Ritz Kids are made in the USA. They've both been granted the "Seal of Acceptance" by the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA). 

Follow the Footer Family on Twitter and LIKE them on Facebook. The Footer is a great gift for any family with growing kids.

New App for Moms - Playdate by JAGO #ProductReview

Playdate by JAGO - a New App for Moms

Arranging play dates is a necessary activity for moms and dads – no matter how old your kids are. We need time to socialize with other adults. And let’s face it, we all know that a properly structured play date results in an hour (or two) of entertainment resulting in sufficiently tired children who will go to bed more easily after a couple hours of play with a friend.

One of the biggest struggles with play dates is getting everyone’s schedules synced and on the calendar. We all run at different paces juggling multiple schedules and places to be. By the time you match calendars, those once frequent play dates can quickly become few and far between. Until now.

A new app called Playdate by JAGO is in beta in your app store for both iOS and Android phones. Playdate is a new parenting app to help parents schedule & manage their kids social lives. This little app is the perfect way to sync calendars with friends to schedule those much needed play dates with friends. The app is free and installs quickly. You simply use their social feature to create your free account, connect with friends, and start scheduling play dates.

Playdate by JAGO has an easy to use interface that lets you keep your kids’ play dates organized and at your fingertips. Quickly and easily add a group play date in advance or use it for that emergency relief to burn off your toddler’s extra energy with a friend. Either way this app is a great addition to your smartphone.

I can see this app working great in larger organizations of parents who need a better way to connect – your local MOPS group, your Mom Meet Up group, preschool parent group…the list goes on.

Download the app and try it out for yourself.

iPurify Colon Cleanse and Detox - #ProductReview

iPurify Colon Cleanse and Detox - by Reduxa
I was compensated for this review, but the opinions expressed in this post are 100% mine.

Digestive health is important – even for busy moms who are more concerned with counting our baby’s bowel movements than our own. 

I’m sure there is plenty of nutritional value in all those detox fruit waters we saw on Pinterest all summer.  However, I’m always on the lookout for other detox options that meet my busy lifestyle;  meaning – I can’t be tied to a toilet for days, turn my entire diet into liquid form, or test the latest diet concoction of unknown ingredient.

So, when I was asked to review the iPurify Colon Cleanse andDetox by Reduxa, I did my research. I looked at Amazon reviews (over 377 ratings with an average 4 stars). I studied the ingredients and their natural benefit for my body. Since this formula is made of all natural herbal extracts – including St. Johns Wart, Psylium, Ginger Root, and Green Tea extracts. iPurify Colon Cleanse and Detox does not contain iron, gluten, wheat, yeast, corn, soy, milk, eggs, or preservatives.

While their claims have not been evaluated by the FDA, it is made in the USA in an FDA registered facility. With an all natural blend to promote digestive health, I’ve tried it. So far so good. Nothing crazy or out of the ordinary.

uShine Hair, Skin, and Nails Complex, Health Supplement #ProductReview

Product Review: uShine Hair, Skin, and Nails Complex, Health Supplement from Reduxa, Inc
I was compensated for this review, but the opinions expressed in this post are 100% mine.

One of my favorite things about both of my pregnancy was my hair. When I was pregnant, it was healthy, strong, and vibrant. It was fuller than it had ever been and I was able to let it grow longer than I had in my entire adult life. Then, it all went away after having my babies. I’ve tried everything to get that healthy hair back – diet, oils, shampoos, etc.

Recently, I was asked to review uShine Hair, Skin, and NailsComplex from Reduxa, Inc. This health supplement is formulated to promote stronger healthier hair, clearer skin, and stronger nails. One bottle comes with 60 capsules which will last one month, when taken correctly.

When taken as a supplement to your diet, uShine’s formula will help bring back that pregnancy hair I’ve been missing for the last few years.  If you’ve noticed your hair thinning after having kids, try uShine Hair, Skin, and Nails Complex health supplement. Reduxa, Inc offers a 100% money back guarantee.
