          Review: Buzzy Weez



          Recently, I was approached with a request to review a baby onesie from the children's clothing line Buzzy Weez. When I visited BuzzyWeez.com, it didn't take long to win me over! Each t-shirt or onesie features an illustration of a different animal with a piece of witty text relevant to that animal. The onesie I chose has a drawing of a sheep and says "I [heart] ewe"! Isn't that the cutest thing you've ever heard?


          When my onesie arrived, I immediately loved it! The sheep graphic is even cuter in person, and the color of the fabric is so rich and vivid. I love this shade of dark green - almost a forest green, but a bit brighter. The onesie is 100% cotton, which is always a top choice for me, because it's a natural,  durable, breathable material. I also love how soft and thick the fabric is - gentle enough for baby's sensitive skin, but strong enough to last a long time. No cheap, flimsy onesie here! 

          All photos are from the Buzzy Weez website.

          The onesie is designed well, with long sleeves to keep baby warm and a lap neck to allow big ol' baby heads to pass through with no problem. The torso section is nice and wide, which will allow it to be worn longer - always a great thing! The leg holes are also roomy, the snaps fasten sturdily, and the stitching is solid. The only small issue I noticed is that the area directly around the images sort of "pooches out" a bit. However, it's not all that noticeable and the onesie is fabulous overall.

          The whole line of Buzzy Weez clothing is colorful, cute, and just plain fun. There are tons of darling designs and funny sayings. Here are a selection of a few of my other favorite designs to inspire you!





          Buy It!
          You can purchase the I Love Ewe onesie as well as a wide selection of other onesies and toddler tees from BuzzyWeez.com for $28 each. Buzzy Weez offers free shipping on orders of 3+ shirts!

          Win It!
          Not today - but keep your eyes peeled! There just might be a fun Buzzy Weez giveaway coming up soon!

          Disclaimer
          I received one free product to review (the I Love Ewe onesie, ARV $28). This did not affect my opinions and my review is 100% honest. I did not receive any other compensation for my review.

          Review: Ecostore USA



          I was recently contacted by a representative of Ecostore USA about reviewing a couple of their items here on Twee Poppets. When I visited their website and discovered their commitment to creating products that are healthy for our bodies and our earth, with "No Nasty Chemicals™," I jumped at the opportunity! It is so important to me to use safe and natural products, especially when it comes to my future child. I chose to review the Pure Oxygen Whitener and the Baby Sleepytime Bath.


          Pure Oxygen Whitener



          Before discovering Ecostore USA, I never knew that a product like this existed. It is a natural substitute for chlorine bleach that uses plant-based ingredients, simple mineral salts, and essential plant oils for a safer alternative that is still very effective. Since babies are such messy creatures, I know that when I have one of my own, there will be many instances in which I want to make whites whiter and remove stubborn stains on my child's clothing, and it puts me at ease to know that I won't have to use harsh chlorine bleach to achieve this. Pure Oxygen Whitener contains NO toxic petrochemicals, NO phosphates, NO nitrates, NO chlorine, NO EDTA, NO optical whiteners, and NO dyes or synthetic perfumes (click here to learn more about why these chemicals are undesirable and why Ecostore USA chooses not to use them in their products - very important information!). Not only is it safer for our bodies, it's safer for our environment, too - in fact, the leftover gray water can even be used for lawns and trees!

          Of course, all this is well and good - but does it actually work? It does! I tested out the Pure Oxygen Whitener on a load of my white clothing, and I was very pleased with the results. The clothes came out just as white and bright as if I had used chlorine bleach! The only small downside to this product is that it does have somewhat of a foul odor - however, the odor is still less pungent than that of actual bleach, so it really isn't an issue for me, as it is an overall improvement. I am so happy to have found this bleach alternative. It comes in a 35.3oz container and only 1-2 tablespoons are needed per use, which means that it will go a long way, on top of all its other great qualities. Are you jumping for joy yet? I am!


          Baby Sleepytime Bath


          This is another gloriously natural product with "No Nasty Chemicals™" - that means NO toxic petrochemicals, NO lauryl or laureth sulfates, NO propolyne glycol, NO dyes, NO artificial perfumes, NO parabens, NO cocamide DEA, and NO cocomidopropyl betaine. For something that's going to come into direct contact with baby's skin, this is essentially important. Many chemicals found in the majority of baby products can cause skin irritation or eczema, and some have even been linked to certain diseases - that's why I will feel so much more comfortable using products like this that leave out all those harmful ingredients!

          Using the Baby Sleepytime Bath was a joy. I tried it out with a three month old baby that I occasionally nanny for, and we both loved it! It is scented with lavender, which has been shown to bring about feelings of calm and relaxation, and that was certainly true for us. The baby was just slightly fussy upon entering the bath, but calmed right down within a few moments when I added a capful of the liquid. The Baby Sleepytime Bath made the whole area smell so lovely and soothing that I think we were both relaxed by it! And when I took the baby out of the bath and dried her off, her skin felt even softer and smoother than usual. It was a delightful experience!

          Buy It!
          You can purchase the Pure Oxygen Whitener ($12 for 35.3oz), Baby Sleepytime Bath ($11 for 8oz), and a whole line of natural products at EcostoreUSA.com.


          Disclosure
          I received two free products to review (the Pure Oxygen Whitener and Baby Sleepytime Bath, total ARV $23). This did not affect my opinions and my review is 100% honest. I did not receive any other compensation for my review.

              Tuesday Tag-Along button art adapted from the "Follow the Leader" illustration by Diana Jones. I encourage you to visit her at her blog, Sketch & Jones, and her online shop to see more great illustrations and all sorts of wonderful crafts!


              Without further ado...
              Here's how it works:
              • Create a new Tuesday Tag-Along blog post. Include the Tuesday Tag-Along button by copying and pasting the code above. (You are also welcome to copy and paste these instructions in their entirety, or any portion of this Tuesday Tag-Along blog post!)
              • Add your blog name and the URL of your TTA post to the MckLinky below.
              • Follow Twee Poppets, the hostess blog listed in the first slot. Twee Poppets will follow you back! (Note: If you want Twee Poppets to follow you back, you MUST leave her a comment saying that you are a new follower and leave a link to your blog!)
              • Follow the Blog Hopper of the Week, listed in the second slot. To learn how to be chosen as the Blog Hopper of the Week, read the red text below.
              • If you can, please follow the blogs in the three slots before you (e.g., if you're number 20, follow numbers 19, 18, and 17). This is not mandatory, but it will help ensure that everyone who signs up gets a few new followers!
              • Follow as many other blogs as you want. The more you follow, the more that will follow you back! Be sure to tell them that you're following from Tuesday Tag-Along! You may also want to leave a link to your blog so they can return your follow more easily.
              • When you get a new follower through Tuesday Tag-Along, be sure to follow them back! It's just common courtesy. :)
              The weekly Tuesday Tag-Along MckLinky opens every Monday night at 8:59pm Pacific Standard Time (that's 11:59pm Eastern Standard Time), and the TTA blog post will be posted well in advance of that time. The MckLinky will be open to add your blog until 11:59pm Tuesday night. You then have all week long to visit blogs and return follows!

              There is a new list every week. The link you enter one week will not carry over to the next week's MckLinky. Please link up again each week to join in the fun!


              Tuesday Tag-Along Blog Hopper of the Week:
              Note: To be eligible to be Blog Hopper of the Week, you MUST place the Tuesday Tag-Along button somewhere on the main page of your blog or website (Inside a blog post does NOT count; it must be on the actual page, e.g. in the sidebar. And since I'll be checking for it manually, I must be able to actually find it). If the randomly-drawn winner does not meet this condition, a new winner will be randomly selected. If you do not want to place the TTA button on your site, you are still more than welcome to join in the blog hop, you will just not be eligible to be the Blog Hopper of the Week.

              Each week, one blog will be chosen randomly from all the links, and that lucky blog will be placed in the desirable second slot for the following week's MckLinky!

              Thanks for being a part of Tuesday Tag-Along! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Chelsea from Twee Poppets directly, at TweePopACap@gmail.com. Have fun!

              I've Been Tagged!

              I was tagged to participate in this fun Q&A by Kari at Shining 2 Save! I encourage you all to visit her wonderful blog and say hello!


              So the game is that I answer the 8 questions she wrote, then write my own questions for the next batch of bloggers to answer. I'm supposed to tag 8 new bloggers, but I want anyone who wants to play to feel free to join on in - so I'm tagging everyone who wants to play! Feel free to join in, answer my questions, write 8 questions of your own, and tag some bloggers to play (if you want to).


              Here are Kari's questions to me:

              1. What is your favorite dessert?
              Oh my, I LOVE dessert more than just about anything! It's so hard to choose just one. I love super rich, fudgy chocolate decadence cake, ice cream, chocolate, Sidney's Sinful Sundae from the Outback, French pastries, pie, really good cupcakes - just about anything, really! Mmm....now I'm hungry...

              2. What was the best thing you did this summer? 
              For out third anniversary, my partner and I took a long drive and went on a picnic at a beautiful park overlooking the water and mountains. It was wonderful to just spend the day with my favorite guy!
               
              3. Do you have a hobby?
              Um, you're looking at it. Twee Poppets is my full-time hobby! You know, like a cross between a hobby and a full-time job? I'm sure lots of you other bloggers out there know exactly what I mean!
               
              4. Summer, Winter, Fall or Spring?
              I love the weather in early fall, when the air is just starting to get crisp and the trees are just beginning to turn. My ideal weather would be 60-65 degrees and sunny (but with one big, thick cloud directly over the sun, because I get too hot when it shines directly on my skin). I hate for it to be too hot out!
               
              5. Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts? 
              I like doughnuts, but I think I like frappucinos even more, so I'll go with Starbucks.
               
              6. What is your favorite color?
              Aqua - the perfect mix between green and blue. It's hard to find the exact shade that is my favorite, but I see it on the edges of glass shelves sometimes. When I see the perfect shade of aqua, it can actually stop me in my tracks and make me stare for a moment or two!
               
              7. What's your favorite TV Show?
              It's been The Office for a long time, but I think it may be on its way to switching to It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Flight of the Conchords is way up there, too.
               
              8. Where was the best place that you have traveled?
              When I was seven, I got to spend two weeks in Kenya. My dad lived there (for work) for a year and a half when I was little, so I was visiting him. As young as I was, I still remember it quite vividly, and it was amazing - I would love to go back someday.


              Here are my questions to all of you:

              1) What is your favorite band/musician? If you can't pick just one, feel free to name a few.

              2) Do you have a guilty pleasure?

              3) Heels or flats?

              4) What is your favorite name for each gender?

              5) If you could have one part of your morning routine (showering, doing your hair, etc.) magically just (*POOF!*) be done every day, what would it be?

              6) Do you feel your age?

              7) If you could have one wild animal for a pet (pretend that cost, the cruelty of keeping a wild animal as a pet, space restraints, etc., weren't a factor), what would it be?

              8) How are you doing today?



              I would love to read some of your responses! If you decide to post about it, be sure to let me know so that I can take a peek! If you don't want to post, but still want to play, feel free to answer in the comments. :)

              Review and Giveaway: Rustic Patriot Girl (CLOSED)


              Cyndy of the Etsy shop Rustic Patriot Girl was kind enough to send me a pair of her gray wool bunny slippers for baby. I received the 0-3 month size, and let me tell you, they are the cutest thing in the whole wide world. The only thing cuter than baby feet is baby feet inside a pair of these bunny slippers! See for yourself:


              Only they're about three times cuter in person. Truly, they are! You have to see their teeny tiny size to get the full effect. They seem impossibly small (just like newborn feet!), but at 3.5 inches, they're a standard size for newborn shoes. (Rustic Patriot Girl also offers them in sizes all the way up to 18 months.)



              They arrived in a small plastic gift box, atop a bed of pink and blue confetti. How fun and festive! It included a card with information about the slippers, a tag with the company logo, and a cute little sheep sticker with the size printed on top. The box had gotten a little smashed during shipping, so I'm glad it was there to protect the slippers, which were in perfect condition.




              The booties are handmade from an upcycled 100% wool sweater. I love that they are made using reclaimed materials, as this is a very eco-friendly option. I also love that they're made of wool, which is a natural, warm, breathable material. I was a little worried that these booties might be a little scratchy since they're made of wool, but as it turns out, they are luxuriously soft, like they were spun from a cloud. They feel more like cashmere than wool to me - any baby would be lucky to wear something so plush!

              These bunny slippers seem to be very well made. The soft ears and button eyes are securely attached, and the shoes themselves are strongly sewn together with a very thick blue thread. I can tell they're going to last for a long time, and I think they're likely to become a treasured family heirloom. They're just so ridiculously cute! And they look great from every angle.


              Buy It!
              You can purchase your own pair of bunny slippers from the Rustic Patriot Girl Etsy shop. They are available in various colors, and in sizes from 0-18 months. Prices range from $29 to $35. Rustic Patriot Girl also offers owl baby slippers, sock monkey baby slippers, stuffed animals, and more.

              Win It!
              Rustic Patriot Girl has generously agreed to send one lucky winner the winner's choice of ANY pair of baby slippers in her shop. The winner may choose from any style and size available. Best of all, this giveaway is open worldwide! Wow!

                  Review and Giveaway: Master Lock



                  Do you all remember when I partnered up with Master Lock to let you know about the great sweepstakes they were having at the time? Well, now here's part two: a review of their 1590D Precision Dial Set-Your-Own-Combination Lock ("Precision Dial") and their 1500iD Speed Dial Set-Your-Own-Combination Lock ("Speed Dial").

















                  Precision Dial
                  The precision dial uses the format of a traditional rotary dial padlock (the kind we're all used to seeing on lockers, where the user spins the wheel to enter the combination). But it has a few important differences from the locks we're used to seeing on lockers!


                  First and foremost, the rotary dial includes not only numbers (one through nine), but also a selection of ten different letters (A, D, E, H, J, L, N, R, S, T). Even better is that the user has the option to set his or her own password (a combination of any three numbers/letters). I absolutely love this option, because it makes it infinitely easier to remember my combination! I can't even tell you how many times I remember students at my high school forgetting their PE locker combos and having to walk into the coach's office with their tails between their legs to get their combinations reset - talk about embarrassing! Luckily, this never happened to me, but I would always have to rack my brain, and I carried my combo on a slip of paper in my backpack, which could have been bad news if it fell into the wrong hands.

                  With the Precision Lock, I wouldn't have to resort to doing that, because I could set my password to something I could never forget. Some examples of memorable passwords could be birthdays, initials, or fun words. And even if the password was forgotten, this lock includes an easy-to-use password reset tool. How cool is that?

                  As an added bonus, the lock comes in a variety of colors (pink, black, blue, and green) to suit any individual style. This is perfect for junior high and high school students, for whom it is especially important to display their individual style as they develop and refine their sense of self. I was sent the hot pink color, which I can see being a big hit among many girls.

                  My only small complaint is that the dial can sometimes be a little tough to turn. On the other hand, I suppose it's good that it doesn't move too easily, as that could make it difficult to stop on the correct number/letter. I guess that's why they call it the Precision Lock! It also clicks as it reaches each new number/letter and there are two arrows to show which number/letter is currently selected, so there's no question as to whether you've selected the correct one.


                  Speed Dial
                  The Precision Dial is very cool, but the Speed Dial is my favorite! I don't know why no one has thought of this before. This lock opens on directional movements (up, down, left, right) instead of a standard rotary dial, and it is so much easier to operate!


                  In sixth grade, before entering junior high, we had to spend a week learning and practicing how to open standard rotary dial locks, so we would be able to do it on our own once we entered seventh grade. With the Speed Dial, there would be no need for this - it's foolproof. There's no learning curve whatsoever, just push up for up, down for down, etc. Even for those who are proficient in opening rotary dial locks, the Speed Dial would be a huge time saver.

                  It can be operated easily with just one hand - perfect for students who always seem to have textbooks, cell phones, or water bottles to carry around in one of their hands. It's so nice to not have to transfer items or set them down on the ground while trying to deal with a standard lock. Plus, the lock can even be opened without looking at it, since you don't need to see the dial to operate it. This lock would be an ideal solution for visually impaired users.

                  The Speed Dial is all about customization. The user can choose his or her own combination, which, like with the Precision Dial, ensures that the password will not be easily forgotten. Plus, the combination can be of any length; choose a shorter password for convenience or a longer one for extra security. If the user prefers, the directional arrows can be covered up with any the included decals of letters, numbers, and shapes, to add an extra element of memorability. And like the Precision Dial, the Speed Dial also comes in several colors (red, blue, white, and black with chrome).

                  I love knowing that my locks are crafted by such a reputable brand as Master Lock. Both locks seem extraordinarily strong and durable, and they both include anti-shim technology to prevent the break-ins that can occur with other locks. I also love that Master Lock has set up Combolocker.com, where users can go to store multiple combinations in a secure database that can be accessed anytime - so they never have to worry about losing their combination again! I never thought I could be so impressed with something like a combination lock, but Master Lock has really gone above and beyond with these locks. They've won me over!
