The day we received this Kids Travel Pack in the mail, my 19 month old daughter couldn't put it down. She would put it on, take it off, fill it with whatever she could reach, put it back on and then take it off again, only to unload it. She had so much fun and I got a good 20 minutes of computer time! She is happy, I am happy...everybody's happy!
These packs are offered in 11 different colors/patterns, most with a logo character that your kids will love. The packs are the perfect size for books, toys and activity packs that you can take along in the car, bring to appointments, or pack snacks in for the park!
The best thing about these packs is that they are designed for children 2 years+ at 11.25" tall, 10 " across and 4" across the bottom. Your kiddos can carry their own "treasures", leaving your purse free from their stuff. How nice is that? You may actually be able to find your keys without pulling out a doll, crayons, cars and a drawing pad!

I have been introduced to one of the best inventions to hit the beauty world! It is a curling iron bag that you put your HOT iron in before storing it. The bags are designed by model Cenita Johnson, who was tired of burning items in her model bag and bathroom drawer.
I have found the bags to work just as well in mommy world as it does in model world! In the past, I had to leave my irons out to cool before storing them. I always worried that my kids would somehow pull it down and get burned. I worry no more! When I am done with my curling iron, I put it away in the Curling Iron Bag and put it in the drawer! Simple and Practicle! I love it!
The Curling Iron Bag comes in 4 sizes of cotton fabric (available in 3 colors) with teflon lining and polyfill. Each bag is embellished with crystals for a bit of bling. Bags are available in a 3-pocket bag for you hair divas and a hairstylist edition. Three of the bags are also available in Sorority colors.
Stop waiting for your iron to cool! Slip on a Curling Iron Bag and store it away! These bags are a beauty essential! Prices are very affordable!

OK, so it's a little close to Mother's Day, but some of you may have not gone shopping for your own moms yet, right? Thinking ahead to Father's Day, today I took a trip to The Sharper Image. While looking for my husband, I got distracted by the coolest thing! FLAMELESS wax candles. Before my little ones were born, I LOVED having candles around the house. Kid + flames = bad news. The Sharper Image has pillar candles that are battery powered. They look real, smell great, and are completely safe. You can purchase them online, but there are more choices, colors, and fragrances in store. You can safely bring back the beauty of candles into your home. A great Mother's Day gift! Now, back to Father's Day. My husband LOVES his grill and often complains about the lack of light when grilling at night. I found the PERFECT accessory for him. Check out The Sharper Image LED Grill Light. It attaches to the place of your choice and will brighten up any meal in the making. You've gotta love one stop shopping!

If your children are like mine, they hate their own cup and just want a sip of mom's. As soon as my bottle of water is opened, it is swiped by a pair of little hands and gulped down in an instant. Unfortunately, two thirds of the water ends up down the front of my water guzzler, and a change of outfit is in order. Not so fun when you're in the car, either.Well, Lil' Topper is a device that fits on to mom's water bottle. It's special valve restricts the flow of water until the child has a drink, preventing the big spill.
It also prevents little teethers from chewing off the 'sports top' and possibly choking. The Lil' Topper contains no parts that can be chewed off or swallowed.
Available almost everywhere, just in time for a hot summer...Visit their site for a dealer near you!
